Morning Report: We’re All Bund Traders Now

Market Commentary  

Bund yields went above 1% yesterday and we saw a sharp rally in the EURUSD into the upper part of the 1.13 handle. It is hard to say what is driving the moves although bonds continue to remain under sustained pressure amid the turmoil in Europe but clearly the high correlation between bond spreads and FX is driving the headline pair in the short term. This has made moves very erratic and directionless making trading more of a coin toss no matter which side you are looking to trade. On the dollar side, data continues to pick up and the market in favour of a September hike over December now but this has also reduced the impact of US economic surprises on the dollar because of current expectations. A better than expected US retail sales number today will probably further cement a September trajectory.

USDJPY moved lower more than 200 pips after Kuroda’s comment on weak JPY. Kuroda is the key person to decide on the next monetary policy and he didn’t talk on FX, too much like Amari and Aso. On the other hand, some people pointed out that his comment is about real effective rate

USD weakness and strong UK IP drove GBP higher overnight.With the Mansion House speeches by Carney and Osborne passing without any of the fireworks witnessed last year there is not much in the way of data until CPI next week so we are left with trading the dollar in the meantime. Strong US retail sales will probably see GBPUSD back to 1.5370/80 levels.
