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


Gold’s next move could be huge, but which direction will it be?

Updated -  Aug 3, 2015 12:30:00 PM By Fawad Razaqzada

Gold ended last week only marginally lower thanks to Friday’s noticeable bounce which saw the precious metal momentarily surpass the $1100 handle. Friday’s counter-trend move was partly in response to news that the second quarter US Employment Cost Index (ECI) showed a very small rise of 0.2% in wage pressure. Traders responded to the data by booking some profit on their long dollar and short gold positions as the month drew to a close. Nevertheless, [...] Continue Reading


USDCAD Bulls on Parade…Where Will the Stampede Stop?

Updated -  Aug 3, 2015 8:40:00 AM By Matt Weller, CMT

As my colleague Fawad Razaqzada noted earlier today, the big market theme at the start of this week is persistent weakness in oil prices. Both the WTI and Brent contracts are at new multi-month lows this morning and are within sight of the multi-year lows set earlier in 2015 after record high oil output from OPEC (see “Crude Extends Decline on Record OPEC Oil Output” for more). Beyond the oil market itself, this [...] Continue Reading


Crude extends decline on record OPEC oil output

Updated -  Aug 3, 2015 7:20:00 AM By Fawad Razaqzada

Crude oil prices continue to head south. As before, they are being driven lower predominantly because of the disequilibrium created from the supply side of the equation. In fact, it is not just the actual supply but the expected growth in supply that are also weighing on prices. Although the demand outlook has improved somewhat, it is nowhere near strong enough to help offset the steep rises in supply. The latest manufacturing data from China [...] Continue Reading


It’s a massive week for AUDNZD

Updated -  Aug 3, 2015 12:45:55 AM By Chris Tedder

The Australian dollar is drifting lower in Asia after a softer than expected reading of private sector Chinese manufacturing PMI for July. Caixin’s Manufacturing PMI dropped to a two-year low at 47.8, well below expectations, July’s flash reading and the 50-mark which separates expansion and contraction. This paints a much bleaker picture of China’s manufacturing sector than the official figures which were released on Saturday; official manufacturing PMI was 50, down from 50.2 in June. [...] Continue Reading


RBA Preview: the policy scales are quivering

Updated -  Aug 2, 2015 9:23:45 PM By Chris Tedder

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) is widely expected to leave the official cash rate at 2.00% at its policy meeting on Tuesday. There has been no indication over the last month that the RBA will deviate from its implicit dovish stance at this meeting. Economic data and events haven’t been shocking enough to wake the RBA from its slumber, despite a tightening of credit conditions in the housing market. Higher interest rates in the [...] Continue Reading


Will there be another Ruble rout?

Updated -  Jul 31, 2015 9:40:00 AM By Kathleen Brooks

Back in Jan/ Feb the Ruble was under attack, USDRUB reached a record high of nearly 80.00, causing intervention from Russian officials and hasty rate hikes to stem the decline in the currency. Things calmed down for the RUB over the next few months, however, it started to drift higher in June, as US dollar strength gathered pace, and the RUB has been the worst performer in the emerging market FX space this week.  [...] Continue Reading
