China holds 1 and 5-year rates steady for the 15th month in a row
On the news front, it was a light day. In Australia, Covid lockdowns news sped up, the city of Melbourne (and state Victoria) lockdown was stretched out for an additional 7 days and the territory of South Australia will have a 7-day lockdown from this evening (neighborhood time). There was a slight decrease in new case numbers from New South Wales state (capital city is Australia’s biggest, Sydney).
AUD/USD and NZD/USD exchanged a couple of focuses up from their prior lows and as I post are pretty much net unaltered on the meeting.
Somewhere else across major FX, it was a meeting of tight ranges and minimal net change.
ES fates on Globex saw somewhat of a bob after the sharp auction Monday US time.
As I post BTC/USD is going to the huge fat round number of $30,000.
