FX Update: The Australian dollar tumbled to fresh major-trend lows

FX Update: The Australian dollar tumbled to fresh major-trend lows versus the U.S. dollar following a big miss in Q4 construction data out of Australia, which contracted 3.0% q/q versus the median forecast for -1.0%. The data suggests Q4 GDP may be weaker than expected, and that's before the Q1 impact of the worst-in-decades wildfires, the sharp drop in Chinese tourist visits over the Lunar New Year period and other economic disruptions caused by the coronavirus outbreak. AUD-USD hit a new 11-year low at 0.6569. Elsewhere, USD-JPY has recouped to levels around 110.50 from yesterday's eight-day low at 109.89. Yen crosses have mostly followed suit, though AUD-JPY printed a 23-day low at 72.48, nearing the four-and-a-half-month low that was seen in early February at 72.41. EUR-USD corrected to levels around 1.0865 after yesterday posting a two-week peak at 1.0890. The pair lifted yesterday as the U.S. 10-year T-note yield hit a record low following a second consecutive day of sharp losses on Wall Street. EUR-CHF has remained above the five-year low seen earlier in the week at 1.0590. USD-CAD has steadied in the upper 1.3200s. Ahead, it's clear that the COVID-19 virus hasn't reached peak contagion rate, and the media hype and (arguably) panicky responses by governments -- with the consequence of economically disruptive containment measures -- seems more likely to grow than to wane at this point. Further bouts of pronounced risk-off positioning therefore seem in store. Ultimately, the proclivity for viruses to weaken as they pass through populations, coupled with remedying influence of upcoming spring weather in the northern hemisphere, along with efforts to contain the spread, should bring an end to COVID-19.
