“This backdrop comes with signs of stress in global liquidity, with the market focused on the move in JGBs. In turn, we remain cautious on the $ bloc but think most of the weight will fall on AUD.”

“For the trade wars theme, we like AUDJPY put spreads as a proxy hedge. Alongside that, the shift in BoC pricing towards October suggests that AUDCAD has more room to grind lower. It’s held the 0.9555 lows for the year and a break of that level opens up a move towards the May 2016 lows of 0.9326.”

“EURUSD continues to hold the late-June range, suggesting buying into dips towards 1.16.”

“On the convergence trade we see more juice in the JPY, than the EUR, suggesting some room for a tactical push lower in EURJPY.”
