A wave of renewed risk appetite returned through the US session as US stimulus hopes were re-inflated after US House Representative Pelosi stated “we’re just about there”. The news lifted the likes of US equities as well as commodity-linked currencies.

It’s also important to highlight that the right sound bites via Pelosi were endorsed via a handful of republican senators. There is a growing wave of Republicans ready to pass an estimated $2 trillion + package, which makes the odds of a fiscal deal finally inked out higher even ahead of the election which happens to be just 12 days away.

All eyes will now be on the final Presidential debate between Trump and Biden before the Nov 4 election. A Democratic Clean Sweep looks increasingly likely judging by polls conducted by the main players, including FiveThirtyEight, projecting the chances at 72%.

This Friday is set to be quite a volatile one in the markets, not just ignited by the reaction to the latest Presidential debate, but due to the plethora of fundamental events lining up, including NZ CPI (just out with a soft reading), UK Retail Sales and PMIs for EU/UK/US.

In terms of the hot trade of the day, the recovery in risk appetite was well telegraphed through the reinvigoration of the CAD/JPY through Europe. The eventual follow through in the bullish price delivery was identified through the OFA script, which served as a reinforcement of the TT or Trap Pattern that also formed around the key support.
