Date : 6th June 2018. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 6th June 2018. FX News Today Asian Market Wrap: Risk appetite is back and stocks in Asia moved mostly higher in tandem with U.S. futures. Treasury yields picked up and the 10-year yield is at 2.939%, up 1.1 bp. 10-year JGB yields climbed 0.3 bp to 0.043%. Concerns about rising protectionism seem on hold for now, and Nikkei and Topix are up 0.39% and 0.12% respectively, the Hang Seng gained 0.52%. The CSI 300 meanwhile is down -0.20%, in tandem with Shanghai and Shenzen Comps amid lingering concerns about Sino-American relations. U.S. stock futures meanwhile are broadly higher and oil prices are set for a second day of gains and currently trading at USD 65.89 per barrel. FX Update: Both the dollar and yen have traded softer against most other currencies. EURUSD has edged out a two-week high at 1.1734. EURJPY also posted a two-week peak, though the euro has traded more mixed (i.e. net neutral) versus other currencies, with euro crosses having flattened out for the most part out after rallying over the last week on the shifting Italian political situation. Concerns remain about how viable a government Italy’s unusual Five Star and League populist parties will make; about whether their anti-establishment, Eurosceptic colours will start to show through in policy. USDJPY has remained buoyant, near yesterday’s two-week high at 110.00, aided by AUDJPY strength following forecast-beating GDP data out of Australia, along with a backdrop of mostly higher stock markets in Asia. Strength in tech stocks helped lift stock markets, while Beijing said today that it would buy $70 worth of U.S. goods if the Trump administration lifts steel and aluminium tariffs. Cable built on gains seen yesterday, lifting into two-week high territory above 1.3400. AUDUSD, buoyed by solid Australian growth data, rallied over 0.5% in making a six-week high at 0.7672.
