Dollar gains as doubts weigh on U.S.-China trade deal, Brexit

14 Oct 2019

NEW YORK The U.S. dollar rose on Monday, after two days of losses, attracting safe-haven bids, as optimism waned about a trade deal between the United States and China, and investors fretted about the ongoing twists and turns on Britain's exit from the European Union.

NEW YORK The dollar dropped to a three-month low on Friday, as safe-haven buying eased and risk sentiment improved on optimism about U.S.-China trade negotiations as well as increased chances for an orderly British exit from the European Union.

Sterling rose to a more than three-month high versus the dollar on optimism about Brexit, while the euro advanced to a three-week peak as risk appetite rose. At the same time, other safe-haven currencies such as the yen and Swiss franc slid on the day. "The risk premium on the dollar, some of the froth around that, seems to be coming off with some progress on U.S.-China trade talks, maybe, and some progress, maybe, on Brexit," said Shaun Osborne, chief FX strategist at Scotiabank in Toronto. President Donald Trump and other U.S. officials on Friday signalled good news was coming in trade talks with China, while Beijing indicated it was open to a "partial" deal that would avoid a planned hike in tariffs on its goods. Officials, including U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He, ended a second day of talks in Washington on Friday. Trump and Liu are scheduled to meet later on Friday. On Brexit, the EU agreed on Friday to hold another round of intense negotiations with London in a bid to secure a deal. EU negotiator Michel Barnier and his British counterpart Stephen Barclay earlier held what both sides called a "constructive" meeting in Brussels as Britain's scheduled departure date of Oct. 31 nears. The British and Irish prime ministers said on Thursday they had found "a pathway" to a possible deal, and by Friday some officials were expressing guarded optimism. Erik Bregar, head of FX strategy at Exchange Bank of Canada in Toronto, said sterling risk reversals, an indicator of currency sentiment in the options market, are exploding higher into positive territory, with calls now trading at a big premium to puts. The move suggested that option traders are betting sterling has turned the corner against the dollar, he said. In the United States, the Federal Reserve announced on Friday it will start buying about $60 billion per month in Treasury bills to ensure "ample reserves" in the banking system. It emphasized though that the new program does not mark a change in monetary policy. "This allays some of the funding concerns," said Scotiabank's Osborne. "It's not dollar-negative because it removes some of the upside risks of the squeeze on funding that we saw at month- and quarter-end," he added. In afternoon trading, the dollar index was down 0.4% at 98.307, after earlier declining to a 3-1/2-month low of 98.197. The euro, meanwhile, rose 0.3% to $1.1040, mirroring the three-week high reached on Thursday. The safe-haven yen weakened against the dollar, which gained 0.5% to 108.50 yen. The dollar earlier touched a 2-1/2-month high against the yen. Sterling surged to a more than three-month high of $1.2708 and a five-month peak of 87.02 pence against the euro. The pound was last up 1.7% at $1.2662. ======================================================== Currency bid prices at 3:01PM (1901 GMT) Description RIC Last U.S. Close Pct Change YTD Pct High Bid Low Bid Previous Change Session Euro/Dollar EUR= $1.1038 $1.1004 +0.31% -3.76% +1.1062 +1.1002 Dollar/Yen JPY= 108.5000 107.9600 +0.50% -1.60% +108.6100 +107.8600 Euro/Yen EURJPY= 119.80 118.80 +0.84% -5.09% +119.9900 +118.7400 Dollar/Swiss CHF= 0.9975 0.9969 +0.06% +1.64% +0.9990 +0.9959 Sterling/Dollar GBP= 1.2658 1.2440 +1.75% -0.78% +1.2705 +1.2409 Dollar/Canadian CAD= 1.3186 1.3290 -0.78% -3.31% +1.3300 +1.3170 Australian/Doll AUD= 0.6798 0.6761 +0.55% -3.56% +0.6810 +0.6754 ar Euro/Swiss EURCHF= 1.1013 1.0970 +0.39% -2.14% +1.1039 +1.0966 Euro/Sterling EURGBP= 0.8719 0.8845 -1.42% -2.95% +0.8868 +0.8696 NZ NZD= 0.6335 0.6318 +0.27% -5.69% +0.6353 +0.6317 Dollar/Dollar Dollar/Norway NOK= 9.0706 9.1238 -0.58% +5.00% +9.1290 +9.0509 Euro/Norway EURNOK= 10.0130 10.0430 -0.30% +1.07% +10.0510 +10.0015 Dollar/Sweden SEK= 9.8018 9.8403 -0.07% +9.35% +9.8465 +9.7863 Euro/Sweden EURSEK= 10.8227 10.8301 -0.07% +5.44% +10.8546 +10.8090 (Reporting by Gertrude Chavez-Dreyfuss; Editing by Kirsten Donovan and Sonya Hepinstall)

FOREX-Dollar slides to 3-month low on hopes of Brexit, U.S.-China trade deals

Sterling rose to a more than three-month high versus the dollar on optimism about Brexit, while the euro advanced to a three-weak peak as risk appetite rose. At the same time, other safe-haven currencies such as the yen and Swiss franc slid on the day. "We have heard positive rhetoric emanating from the trade talks with China," said Bipan Rai, North American head of FX strategy at CIBC Capital Markets in Toronto. "We have also gotten positive undertones from Brexit negotiations. You have seen some of the short sterling positions close up because the odds of a deal have increased and if that's the case investors may be a little more comfortable taking dollar risk off the table," he added. Top U.S. and Chinese negotiators wrapped up their first day of trade talks on Thursday, with U.S. President Donald Trump welcoming what he called a "very, very good negotiation with China". Trump and China's top trade negotiator, Vice Premier Liu He, are scheduled to meet later on Friday. A Chinese newspaper said on Friday a "partial" trade deal would benefit China and the United States, reflecting Beijing's aim of cooling the row before more U.S. tariffs kick in. On Brexit, the 27 countries staying in the EU after Britain leaves gave the go-ahead on Friday for their chief negotiator to hold another round of intense and secret negotiations with London in a bid to secure a deal, two senior diplomatic sources said. Michel Barnier and his British counterpart Stephen Barclay had earlier held what both sides called a "constructive" meeting in Brussels as Britain's scheduled departure date of Oct. 31 grew closer. Their meeting followed a burst of optimism after the British and Irish prime ministers said on Thursday they had found "a pathway" to a possible deal.

Dollar falters as safe-haven bid dims on Brexit, trade deal optimism

10 Oct 2019

NEW YORK The dollar slid to two-week lows on Thursday, with safe-haven demand for the currency waning as investors grew optimistic about progress towards a U.S.-China trade deal and agreement on Britain's exit from the European Union.

FOREX-Dollar tumbles as safe-haven bid diminishes on Brexit, trade optimism

Sterling jumped to a two-week high versus the dollar and posted its largest daily percentage gain in seven months. The pound was last up 1.8% at $1.2432. "With a Brexit deal looking more likely and U.S.-China talks showing more progress, it's just clear that the dollar is losing some safe-haven demand," said Juan Perez, senior currency trader, at Tempus Inc in Washington. On Thursday, Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said a Brexit deal could be clinched by the end of October to allow the United Kingdom to leave the European Union in an orderly fashion, after what he called a very positive meeting with Boris Johnson. Ireland is at the center of what has been a prolonged Brexit impasse. "Both prime ministers came out with the most hope in a while," said Tempus' Perez. "The move in the pound of more than 1-1/2 percent in its favor makes sense ... but the key is can parliament pass this Brexit deal if it does happen." Aside from Brexit, investors were hopeful about a potential U.S.-China trade agreement. Chinese Vice Premier Liu He on Thursday said China was willing to reach an agreement with the United States on matters both sides care about to prevent any further escalation in tensions, the state news agency Xinhua reported. Liu, China's top trade negotiator, made his comment in Washington when he met with U.S. officials. Trade talks between the two countries started on Thursday. "If we get some type of trade deal or mini-agreement or mandate, you're going to see that being supportive of European assets," said Edward Moya, senior market analyst, at OANDA in New York. "We're seeing the euro now back above $1.10, which has been the resistance." The markets largely shrugged off core U.S. inflation data that was lower than forecast. In afternoon trading, the dollar index posted its biggest daily drop in five weeks. It fell 0.5% to 98.64, after earlier sliding to a two-week trough. The yen, another safe haven in times of geopolitical and financial stress, also fell to a one-week trough against the dollar, weakening as well against riskier currencies such as the Australian dollar. The dollar was last up 0.4% against the Japanese yen at 107.87 yen. The euro, meanwhile, rose to a two-week high, lasting changing hands at $1.1014, up 0.4%. The dollar was little moved after data showed U.S. consumer prices were unchanged in September, while underlying inflation slipped. The report supported expectations the Federal Reserve will cut interest rates in October for the third time this year. The U.S. consumer price index edged up 0.1% in August. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast the CPI nudging up 0.1% in September. Excluding the volatile food and energy components, the CPI climbed 0.1% after gaining 0.3% for three straight months. Market bets for a quarter-point U.S. rate cut swelled to 85% at its next policy meeting in October, compared to 53% a month earlier. ======================================================== Currency bid prices at 2:28PM (1828 GMT) Description RIC Last U.S. Close Pct Change YTD Pct High Bid Low Bid Previous Change Session Euro/Dollar EUR= $1.1009 $1.0969 +0.36% -4.01% +1.1034 +1.0972 Dollar/Yen JPY= 107.8900 107.4600 +0.40% -2.14% +107.9700 +107.0400 Euro/Yen EURJPY= 118.79 117.90 +0.75% -5.89% +118.9400 +117.5800 Dollar/Swiss CHF= 0.9962 0.9956 +0.06% +1.51% +0.9972 +0.9915 Sterling/Dollar GBP= 1.2427 1.2204 +1.83% -2.59% +1.2468 +1.2207 Dollar/Canadian CAD= 1.3291 1.3330 -0.29% -2.54% +1.3345 +1.3269 Australian/Doll AUD= 0.6763 0.6723 +0.59% -4.06% +0.6774 +0.6711 ar Euro/Swiss EURCHF= 1.0969 1.0925 +0.40% -2.52% +1.0977 +1.0900 Euro/Sterling EURGBP= 0.8857 0.8986 -1.44% -1.41% +0.9019 +0.8837 NZ NZD= 0.6321 0.6291 +0.48% -5.90% +0.6335 +0.6278 Dollar/Dollar Dollar/Norway NOK= 9.1252 9.1721 -0.51% +5.63% +9.1816 +9.1096 Euro/Norway EURNOK= 10.0455 10.0628 -0.17% +1.41% +10.0878 +10.0434 Dollar/Sweden SEK= 9.8424 9.9586 -0.81% +9.80% +9.9583 +9.8191 Euro/Sweden EURSEK= 10.8371 10.9258 -0.81% +5.58% +10.9325 +10.8310 (Reporting by Gertrude Chavez-Dreyfuss; Editing by Nick Zieminski and Tom Brown)

FOREX-Dollar drops to 2-week low as safe-haven bid ebbs on trade optimism

"There is growing optimism that we could get some partial agreement on trade between the U.S. and China. I think both sides are needing to have a win," said Edward Moya, senior market analyst, at OANDA in New York. "So there is less safe-haven demand for the dollar. If we get some type of trade deal or mini-agreement or mandate, you're going to see that being supportive of European assets. We're seeing the euro now back above $1.10, which has been the resistance," he added.

Liu, China's top trade negotiator, made his comment in Washington when he met with U.S. officials. Trade talks between the two countries started on Thursday. The markets also largely shrugged off core U.S. inflation data that was lower than forecast. The dollar index, a gauge of the greenback's value against six major currencies, was on track for its biggest daily drop in five weeks. The yen, another safe haven in times of geopolitical and financial stress, also slid to a one-week trough against the dollar, weakening as well against riskier currencies but with higher yields such as the Australian dollar. Earlier reports that the United States is weighing a currency pact with China that could also see a planned tariff hike next week being suspended fueled a rally in risky assets, and kicked of weakness in the dollar. In mid-morning trading, the dollar index fell 0.3% to 98.83 and was on track for its biggest single-day drop since Sept. 4. The dollar's weakness ignited a rally in the euro with the single currency rallying to a two-week high. The euro was last at $1.1017, up 0.4%, as hedge funds cut back their extreme short bets. Against the safe-haven yen, however, the dollar was last up 0.4% at 107.87 yen. The dollar was little moved after data showed U.S. consumer prices were unchanged in September and underlying inflation slipped. The report supported expectations the Federal Reserve will cut interest rates in October for the third time this year. The U.S. consumer price index edged up 0.1% in August.

Dollar edges lower as U.S. jobs-inspired rally fizzles

04 Oct 2019

NEW YORK The dollar inched lower on Friday, giving up gains fueled by a generally solid U.S. jobs report that slightly underperformed expectations, as investors worried about political risk in the United States and ongoing trade talks with China.

FOREX-Dollar slips as U.S. jobs-inspired rally fizzles

04 Oct 2019

* U.S. jobs weaker than expected, but solid overall * Rate futures pare bets on Fed easing at two upcoming meetings * Graphic: World FX rates in 2019 http://tmsnrt.rs/2egbfVh (Recasts, adds new comment, updates prices) By Gertrude Chavez-Dreyfuss NEW YORK, Oct 4 The dollar slipped on Friday after earlier posting gains following a U.S. jobs report that underperformed expectations but was solid overall, as investors remained cautious about political risk in the United States and ongoing trade negotiations with China. The greenback hit session highs against the yen and euro following the jobs report, after trading lower for most of the session. But by afternoon trading, the dollar's rally faded. Data showed that U.S. nonfarm payrolls increased by 136,000 jobs last month. August data was revised to show 168,000 jobs created instead of the previously reported 130,000 positions. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast payrolls would increase by 145,000 jobs in September. The unemployment rate dropped to a near 50-year low of 3.5%. "Given that market expectations have shifted after the ADP (private payrolls) and ISM (manufacturing and services), people were bracing for something worse than this. So this is in the ballpark of what is acceptable," said Shaun Osborne, chief market strategist, at Scotiabank in Toronto. "But there are other issues here for the dollar aside from the Fed easing, such as the U.S. political backdrop. And we're still looking at the funding tightness issue," he added. A drop in U.S. unemployment in September pushed traders of U.S. short-term interest rate futures on Friday to pare bets the Federal Reserve will cut rates at both of its two upcoming meetings. The jobs data was initially a big relief to dollar bulls after two weak reports this week that heightened U.S. recession fears. On Thursday, a survey from the U.S. Institute for Supply Management (ISM) showed its non-manufacturing activity index falling to 52.6 in September, the lowest since August 2016. The non-manufacturing data came on the heels of ISM's manufacturing survey on Tuesday that showed activity plunging to more than 10-year lows. The jobs report impact, however, was short-lived as investors grappled with U.S. political tensions. Diplomatic texts released late Thursday showed that U.S. officials pressured their Ukrainian counterparts to launch investigations that could benefit President Donald Trump's personal political agenda in exchange for a meeting between the two countries' leaders. The exchanges were released by Democrats in the House of Representatives as part of an impeachment investigation to determine whether Trump pressed Ukraine to probe former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, in connection with Ukrainian gas company Burisma. Trade talks with China were also in focus, with both U.S. and Chinese officials set to meet next week.
