The story of the day in the currency market was the renewed strength in the British Pound after the UK signaled that the October 15 deadline to get a trade deal done with the EU will drag on and talks are set to continue.
The removal on this immediate risk caused a sudden and long last flurry of buy-side activity in the currency as it topped the leader board. The order flow in the GBP index below shows the vigorous recovery.
The Japanese Yen did quite well too as the sell-side pressure in the main US stock indices prevailed for a second day in a row. Interestingly, the USD was not able to capitalize on this reversal of risk profile.
The fact that fiscal stimulus talks in the US are going nowhere with US. Speaker Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Mnuchin exchanging position yet not reaching a coronavirus aid compromise. While the plan is to speak again on Thursday, even Mnuchin recognized that having an agreement and executing it before the election looks like a tall order.
The AUD is a currency likely to be exposed to above average vol today as the country releases its jobs report. Besides, the RBA Governor Lowe gave a strong hint of further easing ahead by noting that it is possible for the Central Bank to cut rates to 0.1%.
It is precisely the AUD/USD that takes the limelight as part of the hot trade of the day, which includes a long position during the last European session identified via my proprietary order flow script. Anyone soon to enjoy this script via Tradingview could have taken this trade, which ended up for a break even outcome.
