Yen Gain terkait Ketegangan Geopolitik Membebani Pasar Mata Uang ~ Solid Gold

 

solidgold-forexSolid Gold ~ Yen mencapai level tertinggi satu bulan dan franc Swiss naik pada Senin karena meningkatnya ketegangan geopolitik dan kecemasan investor tentang ekonomi global membuat investor bergairah pada awal pekan ini.

Pasar ekuitas jatuh terhadap kekhawatiran sengketa perdagangan Sino-AS yang sedang berlangsung yang memukul ekonomi China, sementara saham Arab Saudi jatuh terhadap meningkatnya ketegangan antara Riyadh dan Barat setelah monarki memperingatkan terhadap upaya untuk menghukumnya karena hilangnya seorang jurnalis.

Yen naik sebanyak setengah persen menjadi 111,69, yang terkuat sejak 18 September. Franc juga naik terhadap euro dan dolar, tetapi kenaikannya terbatas.

Dolar Australia, sering dilihat sebagai barometer sentimen risiko global, mengabaikan suasana hati dan naik 0,2 persen menjadi $ 0,7128 terhadap dolar, menunjukkan bahwa investor jauh dari panik. Aussie mencapai level terendah dalam dua tahun 0,7039 pada 5 Oktober.

Euro menyentuh lebih tertinggi di $ 1,1571 terhadap dolar, sementara dolar diperdagangkan datar terhadap sekeranjang mata uang.(arl)

The yen hit a one-month high and the Swiss franc gained on Monday as rising geopolitical tension and investor anxiety about the global economy left investors skittish at the start of the week.

Equity markets fell on worries the ongoing Sino-U.S. trade dispute is hitting China’s economy, while Saudi Arabian shares tumbled on rising tensions between Riyadh and the West after the monarchy warned against trying to punish it over disappearance of a journalist.

The yen rose as much as half a percent to 111.69, its strongest since Sept. 18. The franc also rose versus both the euro and dollar, but the gains were limited.

The Australian dollar, often seen as a barometer of global risk sentiment, shrugged off the mood and rose 0.2 percent to $0.7128 against the dollar, suggesting investors were far from panicked. The Aussie had hit a two-year low of 0.7039 on Oct. 5.

The euro nudged higher to $1.1571 against the dollar, while the dollar traded flat against a basket of currencies .
