01:50 EDTFX Update: EUR-USD remains heavy
FX Update: EUR-USD remains heavy, threatening to breach Monday's low at 1.1123. The upcoming release of the April U.S. payrolls report should be dollar supportive, analysts think, as the report should show a rebound from March's unexpected weakness. Greece also remains a thorn in the euro's side as news reports from ongoing negotiations suggest that fundamental differences remain between the Greek government and creditors. Elsewhere, sterling has underperformed notably over the last two trading days as markets finally wake up to the sea-change in UK politics that Thursday's general election is set to mark. The polls put the right-leaning Conservative Party in the lead, but well short of an outright majority, which leaves the possibility of a weak left-leaning Labour-SNP (Scottish Nationalist Party) coalition government forming. AUD-USD saw fairly extreme volatility in the wake of the RBA announcing a largely as expected rate cut, tumbling over 50 pips to a 0.7795 low before rebounding sharply to a high just above 0.7900. The RBA cut the cash rate by 25 bp to a record low of 2.0%. The central bank said that a further fall in the AUD is necessary, though made upbeat remarks about employment trends and housing market. Fitch Ratings subsequently interjected that a macro-prudential response may be needed to head-off property bubble risks.
