There is an opportunity for Aussie yield curve to flatten - Goldman Sachs

The firm says investors are discounting too much at the front end of the curve Australia's 10-year bond yields dropped to a record low "With the unemployment rate at decade lows at 4.9% we continue to think the market is discounting too much at the very front end. The RBA may eventually be drawn into a cutting cycle should data deteriorate from here, but relative to current pricing we think risk-reward favours curve flatteners", based on a note by the firm.

ForexLive Asia FX news wrap: Fear sends yen up a few tics more

Forex news for Asia trading Monday 25 March 2019   Weekend: Politics to the fore today as the financial market week opened here in Asia. - 1. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report was delivered to the US Congress, with a summary of findings issued by Attorney General William Barr. Yes, the report itself is not yet publicly available, just the four-page summary sent to the chairs and ranking members of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees. Bear in mind that the headlines come from this letter from Barr, but in a nutshell, the report found no collusion by Trump with Russia (its more complex than that, but, yeah, in a nutshell). There are plenty of other points and more questions to come. Not over. The initial market response was a move to US equity indices (Globex trade) and out of yen, but the moves were small indeed. These moves have since been reversed and then some.
