    Key Quotes

    “Sentiment, rather than fundamentals, remains in control of markets and this keeps downside risks open. This week, Chinese economic data remains the key.

    Expected range: 0.6751 – 0.7017

    AUD/NZD: Awash on global sentiment

    The NZD held up well despite global market volatility dragging down a number of high beta currencies; this took the cross back towards 2016 lows. AUD/NZD remains range-bound as global factors remain the focus.

    Expected range: 1.0582 – 1.0730

    AUD/EUR: EUR safe haven

    EUR outperformed to finish the week with safe haven flows dominating. CFTC short futures positioning was also cut. Expect the pair to be biased downwards.

    Expected range: 0.6184 – 0.6401

    AUD/JPY: Market now net-long JPY

    The market extended net long JPY positions to the highest level since 2012 for the week ended 12 January. Expect risk-off to keep this cross moving lower.

    Expected range: 78.97 – 81.83
