Asia FX Handover 28th March 2019

  • Yields remained under pressure from growth fears, seeing the US10Y hit its lowest level since December 2017 at 2.34% and the AU10Y hitting another record low. Copper remains beneath key resistance due to the stronger dollar. US index futures ticked lower.
  • Fed’s (usually hawkish) Esther George sees a ‘wait and see approach’ for policy, even though ‘US fundamentals still appear sound’. Citing the slowdown in China, EU and UK as the biggest threat to medium-term growth, George also sees growth decelerating towards 2%.
  • Light news today in Asia saw FX pairs trade in tight ranges overall, although JPY is the strongest major which saw USD/JPY touch a 2-day low. GBP/USD pared losses after the UK parliament failed to agree on an alternative Brexit plan last night.
