FX Update: The dollar and most other currencies have been stable

FX Update: The dollar and most other currencies have been stable in quiet early-week trading so far. This came with the main Chinese equity indices posting 2%-plus gains after China's Finance Minister said on Sunday that Beijing would roll out targeted and phased tax and fee cuts and with the PBoC lowering one of its interest rates and making another liquidity injection. Other stock markets in Asia were mixed. The number of new cases in the coronavirus continued to increased, though the consensus view seems to remain that peak contagion will likely been seen in March. Japan's Nikkei 225 underperformed, closing with a 0.7% loss following weaker than expected Q4 GDP data, which showed a 1.6% q/q contraction versus the median forecast for -0.9%. Q3 data were also revised down, and the data come amid expectations for a dismal current quarter performance given the impact of measures to contain the virus outbreak in China and Japan, and elsewhere. Among the main currencies, EUR-USD has been plying a narrow range just above the 34-month seen on Friday at 1.0827. EUR-JPY and EUR-CHF have been doing likewise about their respective four-month and five-year lows of Friday. USD-JPY has posted a sub-15 pip range just below Friday's 107.91 peak so far. Cable has continued to consolidate gains seen mid last week following signs that the government is gearing up a fiscally expansive policy. The pair has been holding with about 1.3030-50, off from the two-week high of last Thursday at 1.3069. AUD-USD has traded slightly firmer, managing to lift just above its Friday high in making a peak at 0.6733. USD-CAD edged out a two-week low, at 1.3233. A big focus will be on flash manufacturing PMI surveys for February, due at the end of the week out of Eurozone, UK and U.S. Note that U.S. markets will be closed today.
