FBI confirms Clinton email probe is over

FBI confirms Clinton email probe is over


The FBI has just confirmed the Hilary Clinton email probe is over.

FBI Director James Comey has suddenly announced that Hilary Clinton should not face criminal charges related to the newly discovered emails from her tenure as Secretary of State. Comey stated the decision not to charge Clinton was “not even a close call.”

The USD strengthened 0.6% against the EUR and surged over 1% versus the JPY in immediate response. The NZDUSD & AUDUSD, however, have been both remain relatively unaffected at this stage.

The USD had weakened across the board when the new Clinton probe was first announced, so we may see some further USD strength as the rest of the world reacts when they get back in the office Monday morning their time.

The US Presidential election is on 8th November (US time). Preliminary results should be out Wednesday afternoon NZ time. The polls prior to this latest development indicated a narrow lead for Clinton.

Current indicative levels are:

NZD-USD 0.7330 / 0.7355
NZD-EUR 0.6620 / 0.6655
NZD-GBP 0.5875 / 0.5900
NZD-JPY 76.40 / 76.65
NZD-AUD 1.0455 / 1.0480
NZD-CAD 0.9765 / 0.9790
