European markets: corporate news round up

Updated  Sep 17, 2014 3:50:00 AM Written by Kathleen Brooks

It could be the clam before the storm today as European markets are higher across the board. European markets seem to have been buoyed by a rise in US markets on Tuesday ahead of the all-important FOMC meeting. Also, contrary to my belief on Tuesday, the Chinese authorities did announce economic stimulus overnight, which is also helping to support global markets. China’s central bank injected $81 billion into the banking system, to help prop up [...] Continue Reading ...

NZ General Election: NZD is at risk

Updated  Sep 16, 2014 9:00:10 PM Written by Chris Tedder

The once high-flying kiwi has been shot down by falling commodity prices, softer inflation expectations and an emphatic rally in the US dollar. NZDUSD is now only just managing to hold its ground around an important psychological support zone around 0.8000 as it awaits key economic data from both NZ and the US, a policy meeting at the FOMC, and NZ’s general election which is taking place on Saturday. The latter has taken a backseat [...] Continue Reading ...

GBPCHF Pressing Channel Top Ahead of Scotland Referendum and SNB

Updated  Sep 16, 2014 2:20:00 PM Written by Matt Weller, CMT

FX traders are about to enter an action-packed next 72 hours, with BOE Minutes, monetary policy decisions from the Fed and SNB, the ECB’s TLTRO auction, and of course, the result of Scotland’s highly-anticipated independence referendum all scheduled for release by the end of the week. While all markets will be impacted by the upcoming Fed and ECB announcements, GBPCHF could be particularly volatile due to the SNB decision and Scottish Referendum. [...] Continue Reading ...

AUDJPY bounces off key support

Updated  Sep 16, 2014 12:00:00 PM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

After peaking around 96.65 at the start of the month, the AUD/JPY has fallen in excess of 200 pips. The Aussie has been weighed down above all by the recent weakness in commodity prices, disappointing economic data from China and continued verbal intervention from the RBA. But the worst of the selling could be over for the Aussie, at least in the short-term and especially against the JPY. The AUD/JPY currency pair has recently [...] Continue Reading ...

FOMC Preview: the Fed’s fear factor

Updated  Sep 16, 2014 9:30:00 AM Written by Kathleen Brooks

At 1900 BST/ 1400 ET the market will receive the FOMC rate decision, the decision on tapering, the latest statement including the latest “dot plot” which includes FOMC members’ forecast for interest rates, and, last but not least, a press conference by Fed Governor Janet Yellen.

Silver: Fed Will Write the Next Chapter

Updated  Sep 16, 2014 8:40:00 AM Written by Matt Weller, CMT

Since peaking around 21.60 in early July, Silver has sold off consistently for the past two months. By last week, the gray metal had drifted all the way down to test the critical support zone around 18.25-50; this level represents the 4-year low in silver and has provided meaningful support on three separate occasions over the last 14 months (for more on this area, see my colleague Fawad Razaqzada’s note from last week, “Can [...] Continue Reading ...

DAX testing key 9600 support as market awaits direction from fundamental events

Updated  Sep 16, 2014 7:40:00 AM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

European stocks opened on the back foot today, largely as a result of long-side profit taking as the market awaits direction from the FOMC tomorrow evening and the outcome of the Scottish independence vote on Thursday. Friday will be Alibaba’s NYSE debut – this is going to be the biggest IPO ever which may spur a rally in tech stocks and the wider market. As far as today is concerned, we have already seen [...] Continue Reading ...

The RBA becomes more vocal about Australia’s hot property market

Updated  Sep 16, 2014 12:34:47 AM Written by Chris Tedder

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) released the minutes from its policy meeting earlier this month, which showed growing concern at the bank about Australia’s hot property market. Board members noted that housing prices were continuing to increase in the nation’s larger cities and members considered that the risks associated with this trend warranted ongoing close observation. The bank also stated that policy needed to be cognisant of the risks to future growth that [...] Continue Reading ...

NZDJPY: is it time for bulls to get excited?

Updated  Sep 15, 2014 8:11:07 PM Written by Chris Tedder

The NZ dollar was the currency that no one wanted to touch due the market revaluating the RBNZ’s planned tightening cycle on the back of softer economic data, cooling inflation and falling commodity prices. Meanwhile, economic data in the US was getting stronger and the Fed more hawkish, thus the market had to revaluate its stance on US interest rates. This sent the US dollar soaring across the board, but especially against the beleaguered kiwi. [...] Continue Reading ...

EM Rundown: USDRUB Blasts Off as Ukraine Ceasefire Starts to Fray

Updated  Sep 15, 2014 2:40:00 PM Written by Matt Weller, CMT

If traders were to create a (false) dichotomy between weeks when G10 currencies are more volatile and weeks when emerging market currencies are more interesting, this week would undoubtedly fall into the former category. With BOE Minutes, monetary policy decision from the Fed and SNB, the ECB’s TLTRO auction, and of course, Scotland’s highly-anticipated independence referendum, there should be plenty of action in the major currency pairs. That said, there have been some [...] Continue Reading ...
