China’s PMI surprise doesn’t change anything

Updated -  Sep 23, 2014 12:18:16 AM By Chris Tedder

The Australian dollar was briefly propelled higher by an unexpected increase in activity in China’s private manufacturing sector. HSBC’s reading of China’s flash September Manufacturing PMI jumped to 50.5, up from last month’s final reading of 50.2 and better than an expected fall to 50.0. The figures are mildly encouraging because they point to stabilisation in China’s manufacturing sector. The slightly positive surprise was enough to propel AUDUSD up to a resistance zone around [...] Continue Reading


AUDJPY hits a key support zone ahead of important Chinese data

Updated -  Sep 22, 2014 7:53:35 PM By Chris Tedder

It’s been a bad start to the week for the Australian dollar, with the commodity currency facing heaving selling pressure overnight that pushed it through 0.8900 against the US dollar (see my colleague Matt Weller’s report on AUDUSD). While the sell-off in AUDJPY was less extreme due to some mild yen strength, the pair has been brought to a key support zone (see chart). As we can see from the chart below, the support [...] Continue Reading


EM Rundown: Two Key Central Bank Meetings on Tap

Updated -  Sep 22, 2014 3:00:00 PM By Matt Weller, CMT

As we roll into a new trading week, the biggest story remains the uninterrupted rally in the world’s reserve currency. For the first time since President Nixon officially severed the US dollar’s fixed link to gold back in 1973, the US dollar index has risen for ten consecutive weeks. Of course, the dollar index only measures the greenback’s performance against G10 currencies, but the buck has also rallied against almost all the major emerging markets [...] Continue Reading


FTSE down on Tesco and as Scottish jubilations fade; key support being tested

Updated -  Sep 22, 2014 1:35:00 PM By Fawad Razaqzada

What a volatile few days it has been for the FTSE! At end of last week, the UK index staged a relief rally as the market priced in and then reacted to news of a No vote for Scottish independence. That rally quickly came to a halt on Friday at around the key 6890/6900 resistance area, leading to an equally sharp pullback that continued into today’s session. The selling was exacerbated by the fact [...] Continue Reading


AUDUSD Turns Negative for the Year on China Concerns

Updated -  Sep 22, 2014 9:00:00 AM By Matt Weller, CMT

It’s been another quiet start to the trading week, with by far the most interesting move developing in the AUDUSD. Just two weeks ago, we highlighted the big Head-and-Shoulders pattern on the pair, concluding that, “…bears may eventually look to target the 61.8% retracement of the H1 rally at .8980 or the measured move target projection of the H&S pattern at .8950” as a result of the pattern (see “AUDUSD on the Verge of [...] Continue Reading


Silver hits lowest since July 2010, but is the selling overdone?

Updated -  Sep 22, 2014 7:30:00 AM By Fawad Razaqzada

Precious metals have extended their losses overnight, pressured by the lack of investment demand due to the still-buoyant equities, low and stable inflation in the major economies and of course the stronger US dollar. Although the US Federal Reserve last week reiterated that it expects rates will remain on hold for a considerable time after the end of QE program, FOMC members also projected a faster pace for rate hikes. This helped to boost both [...] Continue Reading


EURAUD hits some resistance

Updated -  Sep 22, 2014 12:24:57 AM By Chris Tedder

EURAUD has been a major beneficiary of widespread AUD weakness in the last couple of weeks. This has helped to propel the pair to a key resistance zone around its 100-day SMA, a break of which could highlight some technical strength in the pair. However, the pair is starting to look a little top heavy on shorter time frames - there is some bearish divergence between RSI and price on a 4-hr chart. Also, [...] Continue Reading


NZD jumps after Key’s big win

Updated -  Sep 21, 2014 7:22:35 PM By Chris Tedder

The NZ dollar is off to a good start this week, with the NZ elections providing the currency with a boost at the open. Over the weekend, the National Party won a resounding victory over its main rival, the Labour Party. The incumbent party looks to have won 48.1% of the vote, up 0.8% on the 2011 election. Meanwhile, the Labour Party only managed to secure around 24.7% of the vote, down 2.8% from the [...] Continue Reading


S&P500: Alibaba IPO Stokes Market Euphoria

Updated -  Sep 19, 2014 10:15:00 AM By Matt Weller, CMT

Global equity market are euphoric today after Scotland’s populace rejected independence, removing a major uncertainty from the global market landscape (for more on the impact of Scotland’s vote on the UK’s FTSE index, see my colleague Fawad Razaqzada’s piece from earlier today). Another cause célèbre for stocks is Alibaba’s highly-anticipated IPO, which is priced to be the largest public offering of all-time at $21.8B, dwarfing Facebook’s $16B IPO in 2012 and Visa’s $17.9B IPO [...] Continue Reading


FTSE: will the Scottish No vote be enough for index to finally crack 6900 barrier?

Updated -  Sep 19, 2014 7:30:00 AM By Fawad Razaqzada

The FTSE started the day up around 0.7% after Scotland voted to stay in the UK. Unsurprisingly, shares in companies with direct exposure to Scotland jumped to the top of the leader board. RBS, for example, was up 3.4% on the news and after the bank confirmed it would not be moving its registered head office to the south now that the Scottish independence had been rejected, while Lloyds Banking Group said it is [...] Continue Reading
