FX Breakout Monitor: Risk-off fades again, USD broadly stronger
Head of FX Strategy
Summary: Risk sentiment has managed to maintain an even keel on the latest US-China trade news and through today’s US economic data. This has seen a broadly firm US dollar, together with firmness in oil-related currencies like NOK and CAD. On the weak side, GBP and AUD continue to suck wind.

Will review opportunities early next week – for now, just keeping the lone open AUDUSD short.
