Imminent Sino-US deal signing lifts Asian currencies; sterling slips

The imminent signing of a preliminary Sino-U.S. trade deal helped Asian currencies rally on Monday, but sterling fell on fresh hints of a Bank of England rate cut.

“Both sides should produce a lot of positive headlines, really talking up the deal and sounding positive about the outlook,” said Westpac FX analyst Sean Callow.

“The more difficult questions on trade can come later. I think for this week the vibe on the trade side will be very positive and that may help sentiment a bit.”

The Aussie hit a one-week high of $0.6919. The New Zealand dollar also climbed 0.2% to its strongest since Thursday at $.6650 and the euro was steady at $1.1128.

The Japanese yen weakened 0.1% to 109.60 per dollar, close to a seven-month low, and it slid 0.6% to an 8-month low against the trade-sensitive Korean won. A holiday in Japan reduced overall trading volumes.

Sterling slips

Elsewhere, the British pound fell 0.3% to $1.3037 and flirted with a two-week low after dovish comments from Bank of England policymaker Gertjan Vlieghe over the weekend.

Vlieghe told the Financial Times newspaper that he would vote for a cut in interest rates later this month, barring an “imminent and significant” improvement in growth data.

Futures pricing pointed to an implied probability of a rate cut at the end of the month of one-in-four.
