AUDUSD: Why .9450 is Such a Tough Nut to Crack

Updated -  Jul 24, 2014 1:45:00 PM By Matt Weller

In the days before ubiquitous computers, floor traders needed a simple way to calculate intraday levels of support and resistance. Enter pivot points. Pivot points use the high, low, and closing price of the previous day to project support and resistance levels for the current day. For instance, the central pivot point is calculated as the (high + low + close) / 3, or effectively the average price of the previous day. As a general [...] Continue Reading

Gold plunges on improved appetite for risk

Updated -  Jul 24, 2014 12:10:00 PM By Fawad Razaqzada

Just like the past few days, gold is once again weighed down by the deadly combination of stronger dollar and US equities. The greenback’s strength is bizarre given the big disappointment we had in terms of housing market data as new home sales plunged in June from an already low base the month before. Sales of new homes dropped to 406,000 annualised units in June from 442,000 in May (the original estimate for May was [...] Continue Reading

What Can USDCHF Tell Us About the EURUSD Breakdown?

Updated -  Jul 24, 2014 9:00:00 AM By Matt Weller

The market has been enamored with this week’s price action in EURUSD, which unexpectedly peeked down to a new 2014 low under the key 1.3475-1.3500 support zone on Tuesday. However, as we roll into today’s North American session, the pair is fighting its way back toward 1.3500 on the back of decent PMI readings from the Eurozone. For the currency union as a whole, the Manufacturing PMI figure rose to 51.9, in-line with expectations, [...] Continue Reading

FTSE boosted by strong PMIs, looks set to test 6865/80 for umpteenth time

Updated -  Jul 24, 2014 7:40:00 AM By Fawad Razaqzada

Following a sluggish start, the FTSE has turned higher along with the other European markets. Sentiment has been boosted, above all, by the surprisingly good economic data from China and Europe and as corporate earnings from the US continues to surprise to the upside with Facebook posting strong quarterly numbers overnight. Compared to some of the other European indices, the FTSE’s gains have been somewhat mild however. Not only is this because of the direct [...] Continue Reading

China’s manufacturing data lifts investor sentiment

Updated -  Jul 23, 2014 11:41:26 PM By Chris Tedder

The strongest reading of Chinese private sector manufacturing PMI in 18 months has given the Australian dollar another boost, following yesterday’s rally on the back of stronger than expected Australian inflation data, and helped to strengthen the yuan and equity markets throughout Asia. HSBC China July Manufacturing PMI jumped to 52.0 from 50.7, beating an expected rise to 51.0. Digging into the data it’s encouraging to note that most of the 11 sub-indices improved significantly [...] Continue Reading

RBNZ raises rates; signals for a pause in its tightening cycle

Updated -  Jul 23, 2014 7:45:56 PM By Chris Tedder

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) raised the official cash rate to 3.5% from 3.25% as expected. We were also expecting the bank to fire a warning shot at the kiwi and signal that it plans to pause its tightening cycle. The bank did exactly this, although Governor Wheeler’s language used to describe the NZ dollar was even more aggressive than we forecast. The RBNZ is likely cheering the impact this had on the [...] Continue Reading

EURAUD Has 1-Year Lows in Sight

Updated -  Jul 23, 2014 2:35:00 PM By Matt Weller

Yesterday, my colleague Kathleen Brooks discussed the bizarre breakdown in EURUSD. Despite broad-based USD weakness and a lack of negative news out of Europe, the world’s most widely-traded currency pair fell through a key support zone in the 1.3475-1.3500 area to hit a new yearly low. When a currency pair makes a surprising move with no obvious catalyst, it can mean one of two things: that the move is a temporary mispricing that will [...] Continue Reading

AUDNZD: Can the RBNZ Put the Brakes on the Rally?

Updated -  Jul 23, 2014 1:35:00 PM By Matt Weller

Much like the USDJPY, which we discussed at length earlier today, the AUDNZD has been rangebound for most of 2014. In its case, the antipodean pairing has been finding consistent support in the 1.05-1.06 area and resistance between 1.09 and 1.10. While sideways trade is hardly ideal for longer-term buyers or sellers, bulls will certainly agree that 2014 has been an improvement over 2012 and 2013, when the typically-staid pair fell over 2400 pips in [...] Continue Reading

Time for USDJPY Traders to Wake Up?

Updated -  Jul 23, 2014 1:05:00 PM By Matt Weller

Out of all the major currency pairs, the USDJPY has undoubtedly been one of the dullest thus far this year. The pair has been trapped within a tight range from roughly 101.00 to 104.00 since mid-January, driving the average weekly range (ATR) to levels not seen since before the introduction of Abenomics in Q3 2012. Just when traders thought it couldn’t get any worse, bears began stepping in at lower and lower levels, and starting [...] Continue Reading

Crude oil rises on another sharp inventories drawdown, geopolitical uncertainty

Updated -  Jul 23, 2014 1:00:00 PM By Fawad Razaqzada

Crude oil is higher today with Brent currently trading at $107.80 and WTI at just shy of $103.00. Brent has risen on continued geopolitical uncertainty and concerns over further sanctions on Russia. A day after the pro-Russian rebels handed over the black boxes of the crashed Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, today they have downed two Ukrainian warplanes in the east of Ukraine. On top of this, there’s been no let-up in the Gaza conflict between [...] Continue Reading
