SUMMARY

US yields re-attacking the 1.95% level as White House “very, very optimistic” about US/China trade deal.
Traders expecting +15.9k new jobs created in Canada in October.
EURUSD and gold prices succumbing to further pressure from global bond rout.
Dovish BOE still weighing on minds of GBP traders.  Not much chart support beneath 1.2790.
AUDUSD sinks back below 0.6895 pivot on dovish RBA Statement of Monetary Policy.
USDJPY higher with US yields, but yet to take out yesterday’s NY highs.
Recovery in USDCNH notable.  Are traders bracing for a negative US/China headline now?
 

ANALYSIS

USDCAD

Dollar/CAD is tormenting the fund shorts this morning with a possible break above the 1.3180-90s as US yields resume their “everything is fine” rally, but it looks like some positioning adjustment ahead of the Canadian employment report at 8:30amET is seeing the market pull back a tad now.  The expectations for this morning’s numbers are +15.9k jobs created in October, wage growth of +4.2% YoY, and an unemployment rate of 5.5%.  A weak report will likely see USDCAD shoot higher to the 1.3220-30s at least.

EURUSD

Euro/dollar continues to fall today as US/China trade deal optimism reaches a fever pitch.  Forget yesterday’s Reuters headline about the “White House plan to rollback China tariffs faces fierce internal opposition” which saw risk assets take a dip late in the session.   The White House is now “very, very optimistic” about reaching a trade deal with China soon.  See here.  US 10yr yields are attacking the 1.95% handle once again and December gold futures have taken out yesterday’s NY lows in the 1460s.  All this is weighing on EURUSD as NY trade gets underway.  We think the market could slip further to the 1.0990-1.1000 level should it not regain the 1.1030s quickly.  The US reports its preliminary November University of Michigan sentiment survey at 10amET this morning and the expectation is for 95.9.

GBPUSD

Sterling continues to struggle today as the weight of yesterday’s dovish Bank of England meeting remains on trader minds.  We’re also seeing broad demand for USD this morning, which continues to be driven by the rout in global bond markets.  Chart support in the 1.2790-1.2800 continues to hold for now, but if it doesn’t we think there’s a risk for a sizable drop for GBPUSD to the low 1.27s.

AUDUSD

The Australian dollar is got knocked back below the pivotal 0.6895 in Asian trade last night after the RBA released its quarterly Statement on Monetary Policy.  Full report here.  In our opinion, it reads a bit more dovishly than the RBA’s monetary policy statement from earlier this week, especially with the “prepared to ease further” language.  With that, AUDUSD has since been attacking Wednesday’s chart support levels in the 0.6870s and the 0.6860s.  With the broad demand for USD now underway though because of rising US yields, we think the selling could intensify.

USDJPY

Dollar/yen is following US 10yr yields as usual this morning, but both markets have yet to take out their NY highs from yesterday.  Perhaps this acts as the near term pivot for both markets heading into this morning’s UofM survey at 10amET?  We find today’s recovery in USDCNH (decline in the Chinese yuan) as quite notable.  We think a move back above the 6.99 level would be technically positive and could foreshadow a negative US/China trade headline to come.
