Europe FX Handover – 1st April 2019

  • Risk-sensitive assets such as stocks, copper and commodity dollars rose in response to stronger Chinese manufacturing PMI data
  • Eurozone CPI again disappointed (headline CPI printed +1.4% vs. +1.5% y/y expected and Core CPI +0.8% vs. +0.9%), causing the euro to weaken, while the pound rose in response to stronger UK manufacturing data, only for continued Brexit uncertainty to limit the gains. MPs will hold a second round of votes later on Brexit options to try and resolve the deadlock.
  • Turkish Lira initially fell in response to news President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s ruling coalition lost ground in a series of elections on Sunday, before rebounding back. At the time of writing the USD/TRY was trading around 5.5200, testing fresh daily lows.
