Key Quotes:

"Global trade tensions remain in focus after President Trump threatened new restrictions on Chinese investment in the US, spurring a sharp selloff in North American equities (SPX: -1.3%, TSX: -1.6%) after a similar risk-off session in Europe. Rates saw a more modest reaction to trade threats with USTs rallying by up to 2bps in 5s, while Canadian rates outperformed by 1-2bps across the curve."

"USD started the week on its back foot with EUR (+0.4%) leading the G10 complex after upside on IFO expectations while JPY (+0.2%) continues to fair well in the current risk environment. CAD (-0.2%) remains out of favour with markets amid the focus on trade risks."

"BOE/ECB speakers are the main risk events for Tuesday."
