Trading range: 1,158 – 1,170 KRW per 1 USD

This week’s forecast:

The U.S. and China’s comments on the possibility of reaching a trade deal strengthened the market’s risk-on sentiment and is expected to bring an upward trend to the New York stock exchange. However, the greenback is forecast to strengthen to a limited extent until an actual consensus is reached at the trade negotiations.

The KRW-USD exchange rate is expected to remain at the 1,160 level this week. 

Last week’s trend:

The Korean won-U.S. dollar (KRW-USD) exchange rate opened the week up, due to issues such as U.S. President Trump denying the U.S.-China’s deal to roll back tariffs. Intensifying protests in Hong Kong also strengthened the market’s risk-averse sentiment.

At mid-week, while Trump’s theoretical announcements about the U.S.-China trade talks enlarged the air of anxiety across Asian financial markets, the KRW-USD rate rose due to hawkishness resulting from issues such as the Fed signaling it was unlikely to approve further cuts.

The KRW-USD rate ended the week down, moving in line with the strong renminbi amid a positive outlook by White House officials about the U.S.-China trade talks.
