We take a look at how various assets performed in Q1 and mull the big questions in the quarter ahead. The pound was the top performer Tuesday while the euro lagged. Asia-Pacific Q2 trading starts off with a band with the China PMI, Japanese Tankan and Australian building approvals on deck. Today's Premium Insights added a new trade on CADJPY.
Q1 was all about central bank surprises but the one that stands out most was the SNB removing the cap on the franc but looking at Q1 moves as a whole, CHF wasn't as strong as it might have appear. The Swiss franc was the top performer in the quarter but only gained about 2.25% against the dollar and 2.5% against the yen.
