IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) Market update

IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) Market
Monday, May 13, 2019

Good Morning,

• The dollar is mostly stronger against the majors to start off the week, while it is up across the board against emerging market currencies, as risk off sentiment drives investors to safe havens.

• Trade talks between the US and China ended on Friday with no solution and no plans for another round of talks. There are reports the US is giving the Chinese around a month to come to agreement or another round of tariffs will go into effect on
$325 billion worth of goods.

• Yen and Swiss are the big winners on the day due to the risk-off sentiment.

• The Chinese Yuan is the worst performing currency of over the last week, down 1.6% against the greenback. There are concerns that the Chinese government will continue to weaken the currency to combat the increased tariffs.

• The Australian dollar is the big loser on the day as home loans dropped more than expected in March, which will put pressure on the Reserve Bank of Australia to cut sooner rather than later.
