Did Last Week Mark the Near-Term Panic Low in the DJIA?

Updated -  Oct 21, 2014 1:50:00 PM By Matt Weller, CMT

According to Web MD, some of the symptoms of panic attacks include “a racing heart, a sense of terror, and feeling unreal or detached from your surroundings” among others. While not nearly as serious as an actual panic attack, last week’s stock market rollercoaster likely caused most traders to display some of these symptoms last week. At one point last week, the widely-followed Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) index had fallen over 600 points in [...] Continue Reading


Silver: temporary respite or start of a recovery?

Updated -  Oct 21, 2014 12:55:00 PM By Fawad Razaqzada

Given the strong recovery in the stock markets and the firmer dollar, precious metals are holding up remarkably well today. Yesterday we looked at gold, which was chipping away at the key $1240/5 resistance area. Today, the yellow metal has continued to push higher and is currently holding above its 50-day moving average, which is another bullish development. Silver has risen in gold’s slipstream and is likewise not reacting negatively to the rallying stocks [...] Continue Reading


USD/CHF: Approaching Confluence

Updated -  Oct 21, 2014 10:51:06 AM By Neal Gilbert

Markets are in a bit of a better mood this morning as virtually all of the major equity indexes around the world either closed in the green or are currently levitating healthily in that area with the lone exception being the Japanese Nikkei index that closed down over 2%. The impetus for the Nikkei fall was likely due to the Chinese GDP release that was actually better than consensus, but was still the worst result [...] Continue Reading


NZDUSD: All Eyes on .8000

Updated -  Oct 21, 2014 8:30:00 AM By Matt Weller, CMT

As my colleague Chris Tedder noted earlier today, the big news in today’s Asian session was undoubtedly China’s quarterly data dump. The marquee GDP report came out 0.1% better than expected at 7.3% y/y, but this reading still represents a 5-year low for growth in the world’s second-largest economy. However, Industrial Production came out surprisingly strong at 8.0% y/y vs. 7.5% eyed and 6.9% last quarter, suggesting that demand for exports from the Middle [...] Continue Reading


EUR/USD drops on ECB bond buying report, downward trend may have resumed

Updated -  Oct 21, 2014 7:30:00 AM By Fawad Razaqzada

The EUR/USD has dropped sharply in the past hour or so and is in danger of resuming its long-term downward trend. Not only has it come under pressure from technical selling, but there’s also some fundamental news behind this latest move. According to a Reuters report, which cites “several sources familiar with the situation”, the European Central Bank is considering buying corporate bonds on the secondary market. The report suggests the ECB may decide on [...] Continue Reading


China Q3 GDP beats expectations, hits 5-yr low

Updated -  Oct 20, 2014 11:39:42 PM By Chris Tedder

China’s economic growth decelerated to its lowest level in five years last quarter, dragged down by a softening property market. Today’s numbers increase the likelihood that Beijing will do even more to support economic growth but it may not result in the mass easing that the market is hoping for, at least not yet. Despite the fact that China’s economy grew at its slowest pace since the height of the global financial crisis, Beijing appears [...] Continue Reading


AUDUSD levels to watch ahead of the RBA and China GDP

Updated -  Oct 20, 2014 7:34:14 PM By Chris Tedder

It’s going to be a big day for the Australian dollar as investors digest the RBA’s latest meeting minutes and Chinese GDP numbers. The former is expected to show that the RBA remains firmly in wait-and-see mode, while the latter is expected to show that the economy expanded around 7.2% y/y last quarter. Both of these events have the potential to move the Australian dollar for better or worse – keep an eye on possible [...] Continue Reading


Three Potentially Big Influences on the Yen

Updated -  Oct 20, 2014 2:45:22 PM By Neal Gilbert

North American trade was mostly unenthusiastic today as the calendar failed to provide any notable releases, but that was the case heading in to the day as well as neither Asia nor Europe provided anything compelling. The biggest news of the day came by way of IBM whose stock dropped 8.4% on news that they were abandoning an earnings forecast for 2015. The DJIA took a dive right along with the company, but was gaining [...] Continue Reading


EM Rundown: Four EM FX Hotspots This Week

Updated -  Oct 20, 2014 2:25:00 PM By Matt Weller, CMT

Heading into this week, there are four global hotspots and four associated currency pairs to watch for EM FX traders to keep an eye on: 1) USDRUB: Moody’s Downgrade Adds to Ruble’s Woes In last week’s EM Rundown, we discussed three reasons the ruble rout had resumed: plummeting oil prices, Western economic sanctions and ongoing capital outflows. This week, ruble traders can add a fourth bearish catalyst, a sovereign credit downgrade. Over the weekend, Moody’s [...] Continue Reading


Gold chipping away at key resistance as safe haven demand grows

Updated -  Oct 20, 2014 1:00:00 PM By Fawad Razaqzada

Gold has now risen for two straight weeks after bouncing off the technically-important $1180/85 area at the start of the month. For a time last week, the metal was up a good $65 from that low ($1183), representing a gain of 5.5 per cent. Although gold’s rally faltered somewhat at the end of last week – undoubtedly due to the stronger dollar and the kick-back rally we saw in the stock markets, which reduced the [...] Continue Reading
