The EUR/USD pair opened today with a bullish gap, consolidating its positions near the level of 1.1880 during the Asian session on the back of recent news that North Korea successfully tested a hydrogen bomb, which has triggered new wave of risk aversions across the market. The reaction of the market on the latest events is not a surprise, as persisting nervousness, backed by ongoing tensions around the Korean Peninsula, grips the market for the last couple of weeks. However, the pair managed to break out of its consolidation phase and rose above the level of 1.1900 in the European morning, as risk-off sentiments are supporting euro’s funding currency status. Moreover, Friday’s disappointing US jobs data, which dampened hopes of a Dec Fed rate hike, also collaborates with pair’s upside at the start of this week. Expected that the pair will continue to show low volatility level today amid thin trading conditions, backed by lack of any important data releases from the European economic calendar and the Labor Day holiday in the US markets.
The dollar/yen pair came under renewed selling pressure after brief consolidation, witnessed during the Asian trades, as broad flight to safety navigates the market at the start of this working week. The major continues to keep its offered tone so far this session, as the yen receives strong support from the demand on safe-haven assets, triggered by recent headlines, saying that Pyongyang conducted hydrogen bomb test, which is the sixth nuclear test since 2006. In response to that, Japan’s PM Shinso Abe and S.Korea’s President Moon Jae-in agree to apply strong sanctions on N.Korea until it decides to come to dialogue. Moreover, the weakness around the greenback also pressures on the pair, as investors are still digesting Friday’s disappointment from the US labour market that limits any chances of the US currency to recover its positions. On the data front, today we have absolutely empty data calendar, as US markets will remain closed in observance of Labor Day, leaving the pair at the mercy of widespread risk trend throughout this trading session.
The GBP/USD pair was trading around a flat line near the level of 1.2960 in 20 pips narrow range during Asia, as market’s sentiments remained subdued amid escalating conflict around N.Korea and closed US markets. Expected that the pair will continue to trade under pressure later today, as recent headlines about N.Korea nuke test spooked the market, which in turn is negatively affecting higher-yielding GBP. On the other hand, ongoing weakness of the US dollar, backed by downbeat US jobs data released last Friday, is limiting pair’s further downside traction. Now all investors’ attention remains glued to the UK manufacturing PMI report for fresh directional impetus, while further USD price actions and broad risk-aversions will continue to navigate the pair throughout this trading session.
The BTC/USD pair extends its downside correction today, losing about 500 USD since its ultimate highs, posted at 4960.30 on Friday. By the moment of writing Bitcoin was trading at the 4446.50 spot, while its market cap remained above the level of 70 billion USD, according the latest data available on the coinmarketcap.com. Recent retreat of Bitcoin is mainly attributed to profit taking actions after the pair once again hit its absolute tops. However, expected that cryptocurrency’s upside rally is not over yet, as investors are still cheering up Bitcoin after it survived recent improvements. Moreover, expanding popularity of the digital cash also provides support to the BTC/USD pair.
