“Outperformer NZD rose from 0.6550 to 0.6648 – a six-week high, then eased to 0.6610. AUD/NZD continued to slip, from 1.0900 to 1.0863 – a four-month low – before grinding back to 1.0900.”

“USD/majors is weaker and USD/CNH is more than a big figure lower, around 6.3475. This points to a lower USD/CNY fixing but it is hard to see the motivation for an aggressive move lower. A fixing around 6.3500 seems reasonable but will take a few days to see whether there is a change in the skew of fixings now that President Xi’s visit to the US is complete and the USD mood is less robust.”
