USD: significant breakout imminent, data permitting

Updated -  Aug 5, 2015 7:45:00 AM By Fawad Razaqzada

The dollar has eased off a tad ahead of this afternoon’s US economic numbers having earlier extended its gains for the third day against a basket of foreign currencies. Generally speaking the dollar remains in a strong bullish trend due to growing speculation over a September or December Federal Reserve rate hike, which would be the first in nine years, and dovish central banks elsewhere. Indeed, the Fed’s Lockhart has given the clearest signal yet [...] Continue Reading


The Fed: a rate hike cometh, time for the market to play catch up

Updated -  Aug 5, 2015 4:15:00 AM By Kathleen Brooks

The market has been wrong-footed once more by the Federal Reserve. The dollar is maintaining multi-month highs this morning after the President of the Dallas Federal Reserve gave the clearest signal yet that he would vote to hike US interest rates in September, if economic data remains on its current trajectory. The market reacted to Lockhart’s comments: Treasury yields, both 10-year and 2-year, jumped by 6 basis points during Tuesday’s session. This had [...] Continue Reading


AUDCAD: battle of employment data as price moves closer to parity

Updated -  Aug 5, 2015 1:37:06 AM By Chris Tedder

The Australian dollar been on a high following yesterday’s policy meeting at the RBA and some better than expected retail sales numbers. Combined with some widespread weakness in the CAD, the strong aussie his has helped push AUDCAD through its 200-day SMA and important trend line resistance. The pair is now testing further resistance around 0.9750 before a possible attempt at parity, backed by some recent technical bullish signals. The RBA’s less dovish tone [...] Continue Reading


NZDUSD takes another dive

Updated -  Aug 4, 2015 9:05:32 PM By Chris Tedder

The NZ dollar has been hit by a powerful one-two combination that may have crippled it in the near-term. Overnight, Fonterra released the results from its latest GlobalDairyTrade auction, with prices falling 9.3% since the last auction in mid-July and every sub-index in negative territory or flat. This is the 10th auction in a row that prices have fallen and will likely result in a reduced payout to dairy farmers in NZ which is a [...] Continue Reading


EURUSD: Grexit Fears Still Lurking Just Beyond the Horizon

Updated -  Aug 4, 2015 2:50:00 PM By Matt Weller, CMT

While much of Europe’s economy is chugging along at the same slow but steady pace, traders were abruptly reminded of Greece’s economic tragedy yesterday. Most of yesterday’s Manufacturing PMI figures out of individual Eurozone countries were in-line with expectations in the low- to mid-50s (including in Germany, France, and Italy) but the figure out of Greece was so abysmal that many analysts thought it was due to a calculation error. The widely-watched Manufacturing survey showed [...] Continue Reading


Cracks appearing in US stock markets

Updated -  Aug 4, 2015 10:25:00 AM By Fawad Razaqzada

Following the global financial crisis, US stock markets have been marching higher year after year since they bottomed out in March 2009. But this year the markets have struggled for direction and that’s still the case today despite what has been a decent quarterly earnings season so far. Thus the winning streak could be over come December 31st. There are various reasons why this could happen, not least the fact that the end of the [...] Continue Reading


AUDUSD: Awesome Aussie Awakens

Updated -  Aug 4, 2015 8:05:00 AM By Matt Weller, CMT

As my colleagues Chris Tedder and Fawad Razaqzada noted earlier today (see “RBA Removes its Dovish Bias and the Ceiling on AUD” and “AUD/JPY: Triple Bottom Reversal?” for more), the Australian dollar has surged across the board as the Reserve Bank of Australia took a definitive shift to a more neutral outlook last night. Combined with better-than-expected reports on retail sales (0.7% m/m vs. 0.5% expected) and the country’s trade balance (-2.93B in [...] Continue Reading


AUD/JPY: triple bottom reversal?

Updated -  Aug 4, 2015 7:15:00 AM By Fawad Razaqzada

The Reserve Bank of Australia has inspired a rally in the Aussie by changing a phrase in its latest policy statement. The RBA merely stated the obvious by noting that the Australian dollar is adjusting to significant declines in key commodity prices. As my colleague Chris Tedder reported, this is a far cry from the bank’s comments at its last policy meeting which suggested that further depreciation in the Aussie seemed both likely and [...] Continue Reading


RBA removes its dovish bias and the ceiling on AUD

Updated -  Aug 4, 2015 1:14:03 AM By Chris Tedder

At its policy meeting today the RBA held the official cash rate steady at 2% for the third month in a row, as expected by the majority of the market. The bank completely softened its stance on the exchange rate, noting that the Australian dollar is adjusting to significant declines in key commodity prices. This is far cry from the bank’s comments on the back of its last policy meeting which suggested that further depreciation [...] Continue Reading


EM Rundown: The CBR’s “Signals by Omission”

Updated -  Aug 3, 2015 2:30:00 PM By Matt Weller, CMT

There’s a decidedly risk-off tone to the markets on the first Monday of August, with the US dollar and bonds edging higher at the expense of US equities and oil in particular. This same pattern is evident in the less-monitored world of emerging market currencies as well, where currencies like the Mexican peso, South African rand, and Turkish lira are all trading lower against the greenback thus far. As we briefly noted in  [...] Continue Reading
