Forex news for Asia trading Tuesday 24 September 2019

A subdued day for news, data and currency movement here in Asia.

US President Trump and US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin both had remarks reported, but both made general, non-specific comments only along familiar lines - everything is fine with China talks etc. China's Liu he is back in Washington on October 10 and 11 for talks so until then its unlikely we get anything much in the way of specifics. If past experience is anything to go bu a generally positive modd should prevail up until then and then. Again if past experience is anything to go by, a disappointing reality should slap markets in the face. 

Having said this, during the session here today the Japanese foreign minister said a US-Japan trade deal will be signed on Wednesday, agreement has been reached, and talks have concluded. 

If you scan across forex majors you will note some minor movement and net little change since US afternoon trade. Coming up later we get some central bank speak:

  • BOJ Kuroda at 0530GMT (and again at 0730GMT)
  • RBA Lowe at 1005GMT

Still to come:
