  • Swiss retail trade turnover fell in April 2019
  • Trump Says U.S. Will Hit Mexico With 5% Tariffs on All Goods – This surprise event from the U.S. sparked global risk aversion sentiment as it comes just a few hours after the U.S. administration submits its already agreed trade deal with Canada and Mexico to Congress for approval. Changing the terms on a whim is likely read by the global community that trade deals with the U.S. aren’t something to be relied upon, and this is arguably further de-motivation for China to lock up a deal with the U.S. quickly, hence the risk-off behavior and Swiss franc rally. This hit the U.S. dollar pretty hard on the session as it all potentially leads up to Fed rate cuts, and a weak Greenback is likely also why we saw the Swiss franc rally starting in the Friday Asia session.
