MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 10th April 2018.

FX News Today

Asian Market Wrap: Conciliatory words on trade from China’s President Xi Jinping, who pledged greater openness in sectors from banking to auto manufactures while warning against a return to a “Cold War mentality” helped to calm nerves and underpinned stocks, while weighing on safe haven assets, especially in the U. S. .  10-year JGB yields are up 0. 1 bp at 0. 025%, 10-year Treasury yields are up 2. 6 bp and back above the 2. 8% mark.  Stock markets meanwhile have moved broadly higher, Nikkei and Topix are up 0. 54% and 0. 33% respectively, the Hang Seng outperformed again and gained 1. 12% so far and the CSI 300 is up 0. 48%.  U. S.  stock futures are rallying and up more than 1% across, Dow Jones, S&P and NASDAQ, with the latter outperforming.  Oil prices also benefited from the risk on environment and the front end USOil future is trading at USD 63. 83 per barrel.  An all round risk on environment, then, at least for now.

FX Update: USDJPY edged out a two-session high following a fresh bout of general yen weakness.  Chinese President Xi’s keynote speech earlier mollified investor anxieties by de-ratcheting the trade war rhetoric by pledging that Chinese economy will open up and will lower import tariffs on vehicles, and although details were limited, this managed to lift stock markets in Asia, along with U. S.  and European stock index futures.  The Nikkei 225 gained by 0. 8%, while S&P 500 futures were showing a 1. 1% advance.  The yen weakened against this backdrop as safe haven positions unwound.  USD-JPY clocked a two-session high at 107. 24 before settling slightly off here.  The pair has support at 106. 77-80.
