    FX News Today
    • USDJPY has posted a six-day high at 109.00. Yen crosses have also remained buoyant amid a backstop of re-established risk appetite in global markets, in turn feeding an outperforming bid in Japanese equity markets, while the Dollar has concurrently firmed up a tad against most currencies after descending yesterday.
    • 10-year Treasury yields are down -1.1 bp at 2.685% while 10-year JGB yields rose 1.8 bp to -0.08%.
    • Asian bond as well as stock markets traded mixed, as the focus remains on US-China trade talks.
    • A weaker Yen helped Japanese markets to outperform and Topix and Nikkei are up 0.39% and 0.82% respectively. The Hang Seng meanwhile is unchanged, CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp are down -0.23% and -0.30% respectively, while the ASX closed with a gain of 0.69% and US and European stock futures are also moving higher. The front end WTI future is trading at USD 48.54 per barrel.
    • Markets look a little less committed presently, wanting specifics from the ongoing US-China trade talks and a break in the partial government shutdown, the consequences of which are becoming more evident as time ticks on.
    • The Trump administration expressed optimism of a “reasonable” deal and news that China dispatched one of Xi’s top aids to the low level negotiations in Beijing underpinned hopes of progress. The US Secretary of Commerce said yesterday that a deal can be reached that “we can live with.”
    • Meanwhile US President Trump’s TV address today will be watched closely with investors hoping for clues on the possible end to the government shutdown.
