USDJPY: The BOJ Delivers a Halloween Treat to Bulls

Updated -  Oct 31, 2014 8:55:00 AM By Matt Weller, CMT

In today’s Asian session, the BOJ shocked traders by increasing its already-massive Quantitative Easing program by another 30 trillion yen per year ($270B), bringing the total yearly purchases to a total of 80 trillion yen ($725B). To put this program into context, it represents an annual injection equal to roughly 14% of Japan’s GDP, dwarfing the recently wound-down QE programs in the US (6% at the peak of $85B in monthly purchases). The central bank [...] Continue Reading

Nikkei surges as BoJ unexpectedly expands QE

Updated -  Oct 31, 2014 8:30:00 AM By Fawad Razaqzada

One central bank ends QE, another increases it. This is not a trick but a treat for the markets. The global equity markets have surged higher after the Bank of Japan surprised the markets overnight by expanding its monetary easing programme to about 80 trillion yen a year, up from Y60tn-Y70tn previously. The BoJ will achieve this mainly by increasing its purchases of longer-term Japanese government bonds. The central bank is clearly worried about the [...] Continue Reading

BoJ preview: no change expected… yet

Updated -  Oct 30, 2014 6:36:35 PM By Chris Tedder

The BoJ isn’t expected to alter policy at the conclusion of its monetary policy meeting later today. The bank will release its latest 3-year forecasts for economic growth and consumer prices. This will provide the market will an insight into the bank’s future plans for monetary policy. A significant lowering of the inflation outlook may precede further stimulus, although we aren’t expect the bank to act today in any case. Before the BoJ meeting [...] Continue Reading

North American Wrap: The Greek Canary in the Coal Mine

Updated -  Oct 30, 2014 3:48:37 PM By Neal Gilbert

The Greek Canary in the Coal Mine Investors in North America have got to be feeling pretty high on the hog of late as everything seems to be coming up roses for the US and its economy. Yesterday saw the Federal Reserve taper the last part of Quantitative Easing while sounding fairly optimistic about the future, and then today brought about a 3.5% increase in GDP for Q3, which combined with Q2 at 4.6%, was [...] Continue Reading

What does USDRUB Have in Common With a Thanksgiving Turkey?

Updated -  Oct 30, 2014 3:00:00 PM By Matt Weller, CMT

In 2007, Nassim Nicholas Taleb published his revolutionary book “The Black Swan” about the eponymous theory, which posits that rare, unpredicatble events have a massive impact and can only be rationalized after the fact. Taleb’s most iconic example of a black swan event comes from the perspective of a Thanksgiving turkey. About this time of the year, Thanksgiving turkeys across the United States are feeling pretty lucky: they have humans who regularly give them [...] Continue Reading

Is gold on the verge of a breakdown?

Updated -  Oct 30, 2014 2:40:00 PM By Fawad Razaqzada

At the conclusion of the FOMC meeting last night, the Federal Reserve announced it has ended QE. This was a hawkish move by the Fed which caught a few by surprise, causing the dollar to surge higher and the buck-denominated gold to go in the opposite direction. However the Fed also managed to keep the stock market bulls happy by insisting rates will remain low for a long period. With the dollar and stocks both [...] Continue Reading

EUR/USD: Quantifiably Engaging

Updated -  Oct 30, 2014 11:25:55 AM By Neal Gilbert

It has been an eventful 24 hours in the trading realm following a veritable lack of activity to start the week thanks in large part to a couple of central bank meetings and some telling data about both European and US economies. As covered extensively yesterday (here and here), the Federal Reserve decided to completely taper away Quantitative Easing, a move that was widely anticipated, but also acknowledged more succinctly that the economy [...] Continue Reading

Updated -  Oct 30, 2014 9:00:00 AM By Matt Weller, CMT

DAX turns lower on concerns over end of QE, health of European banks

Updated -  Oct 30, 2014 8:20:00 AM By Fawad Razaqzada

Stocks took their time but are now sharply lower on the day. This is possibly a delayed response to yesterday’s news that the Fed has ended QE, as after all today's European earnings results and economic data have been decent. There are doubts about the European Central Bank’s ability to support the markets in the same way that the Fed has with their use of unconventional policy tools. On top of this, there are renewed [...] Continue Reading

AUDNZD tests a key resistance zone after the RBNZ magnifies a NZD sell-off

Updated -  Oct 30, 2014 12:14:08 AM By Chris Tedder

It’s been a massive day for the kiwi, with the commodity currency dropping around 2% against the USD in just two hours this morning. Latter in the session NZDUSD regained some lost ground after data showed that the RBNZ didn’t intervene to weaken the kiwi last month.
