  • Wall Street’s rally provided support to commodity-linked currencies.

Commodity-linked currencies were the best performers against the greenback, supported by Wall Street flirting with record highs. The pair trades a few pips below the mentioned high heading into the Asian opening. The focus during the upcoming hours will be on the Chinese macroeconomic calendar, as the country will publish the December official NBS Manufacturing PMI, foreseen at 52 from 52.1, and the Non-Manufacturing PMI expected at 52.4 from 56.4 in the previous month.
