Due to the sharp rebound of US stocks, forex market was dominated by risk-oriented USD selling, with EUEUSD temporarily rising to 1.168 and AUDUSD temporarily rising to 0.707. GBPUSD has risen sharply above 1.29. On the other hand, USDJPY was in range from 105.3 to 105.6 due to both USD-selling and JPY-selling.
This week we have presidential debate, end-of-month rebalancing, ISM and NFP, and market volatile is likely to be high. I would like to pay attention to whether adjustment movement from the beginning of September will be changed.
In addition, USD buying, which seems to be a rebalancing at the end of the month, was observed before 15:00 GMT.
