The U.S dollar gained sharply across the board as virus fears and worries over delays in fresh U.S. stimulus
Fundamental News

EUR/USD
The Shared currency nosedived to $1.1753 after a resurgent U.S dollar gained sharply after virus fears and worries over delays in fresh U.S. stimulus drove a wave of selling in just about every other asset market.

 

GBP/USD
The Cable plummeted to $1.2800 on comments from Patrick Vallance, Britain’s chief scientific adviser that there could be 50,000 new infections every day by mid-October if the virus continues at its current rate and ahead of BoE's governor Bailey speech.

 

USD/JPY
The Safe Haven yen dropped to 104.55/dlr on US dollar broad strength amid risk-off mood and a closed Japanese market.

 

AUD/USD
The Aussie dollar slipped to $0.7215 backed up by Deputy Governor Guy Debelle speech that the Australian central bank is assessing various monetary policy options including currency market intervention and negative rates to meet its inflation and employment goals.

 

USD/ZAR
The South African rand reversed gains to 16.82 against the U.S dollar on a global market sell-off spurred by rising coronavirus cases in Europe and dwindling prospects for another economic aid package in the United States.

 

USD/MUR
The dollar-rupee crawled by 5 cents to 40.25(selling) on the local market.
