AUD is hit by soft retail sales data

Updated  Oct 1, 2014 12:53:33 AM Written by Chris Tedder

It seems the Australian dollar cannot catch a break. This time it was assaulted by sellers after disappointing retail sales figures out of Australia, despite better than expected Chinese Manufacturing PMI figures earlier in the session and news that China is loosening even more property restrictions. The path of least resistance for the battered commodity currency appears to still be firmly to the downside. However, while AUDUSD was hit hard by today’s aussie weakness, it [...] Continue Reading ...

Is AUDJPY about to rally?

Updated  Sep 30, 2014 8:29:48 PM Written by Chris Tedder

Earlier today Japan’s Tankan survey for Q3 painted a stronger than expected picture of corporate sentiment. Tankan Large Manufacturing Index jumped to 13 – exp. 10; prior 12 – and Tankan Large All Industry CAPEX rose 8.6% – exp. 7.0%; prior 7.4%. Japan’s Non-Manufacturing Tankan Index missed expectations at 13 (exp. 17), but this is largely being ignored in the face of the stronger than expected data from the manufacturing sector. The yen found [...] Continue Reading ...

USDCAD: Up, Up, and Away!

Updated  Sep 30, 2014 3:00:00 PM Written by Matt Weller, CMT

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re aware of this month’s incredible rally in the US Dollar. While some currencies like the euro, yen, and New Zealand dollar are testing multi-year lows against the greenback, other currency pairs have seen more limited appreciation in the world’s reserve currency; for traders who expect the buck’s rally to continue, these currency pairs may offer good trade opportunities as they “catch up” with their rivals. A [...] Continue Reading ...

Precious metals: rallying dollar continues to undermine gold and silver

Updated  Sep 30, 2014 11:45:00 AM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

The price of gold and silver fell once again this morning and as the metals broke below their recent range lows some follow-up technical selling was triggered which helped to further accelerate the downward move. Yet again, it was the broad-based dollar strength that undermined precious metals. The US currency has been climbing higher on expectations the Federal Reserve will be the first major central bank to raise interest rates in 2015. The greenback found [...] Continue Reading ...

Can anything stop the dollar in its tracks?

Updated  Sep 30, 2014 8:40:00 AM Written by Kathleen Brooks

The dollar is back. After taking a breather on Monday, it is continuing to push northwards as we move into the last day of the month. September has been a stellar month for the greenback; the dollar index has risen by 3%, its best monthly performance for 2 years. What is more amazing is that the USD has risen even though the August payrolls report was much weaker than expected, and even though some Fed [...] Continue Reading ...

NZDJPY: Long-Term Chart Suggests Major Top Has Formed

Updated  Sep 30, 2014 8:40:00 AM Written by Matt Weller, CMT

King Dollar remains on his throne for another day as all the other peasant currencies continue to battle for second place. While the dollar remains the strongest trend in the market, some traders are growing concerned that the greenback’s rally has gone too far, too fast. For those traders, it can be worthwhile to examine cross currency pairs to evaluate the relative strength and trends independent of the US dollar. One of the more interesting [...] Continue Reading ...

Has EUR/AUD resumed downward trend?

Updated  Sep 30, 2014 7:10:00 AM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

The euro has been dealt another blow today after the release of some mixed bag Eurozone data. Though the numbers overall were not particularly bad – in fact there was some welcoming news from German retailers, for example – the market seems to have focused mainly on the slightly weaker-than-expected core CPI print, which probably raised expectations that the ECB may increase its stimulus programmes further to fight deflation threats. The EUR/USD dropped to its [...] Continue Reading ...

FTSE 100: Movers and shakers

Updated  Sep 30, 2014 5:15:00 AM Written by Kathleen Brooks

The FTSE is little changed so far today, after a torrid start to the week. However, a move below 6,600 has proven to be elusive so far, and attempts to test this level on Friday and Monday were met with some small scale buying interest. This does not mean that a recovery is on the cards, just that the market may take a breather while we wait for key economic data this week, which could [...] Continue Reading ...

China roundup: it was a tough month for China

Updated  Sep 30, 2014 1:52:46 AM Written by Chris Tedder

August was an eventful month for the world’s second largest economy as so-so economic data and a struggling property market prompted more easing from Beijing while protests in Hong Kong have sent investors flocking away from the renminbi. This has infected investor sentiment throughout Asia and especially in Asia’s major commodity currencies, and even promoted some major investment banks to downgrade their growth targets for China this year. In fact, it now looks increasing unlikely [...] Continue Reading ...

Mixed economic messages from Japan

Updated  Sep 29, 2014 8:48:51 PM Written by Chris Tedder

There has been a slew of economic data released from Japan this morning that sent the market some mixed signals. As a result USDJPY has been a little jumpy in early Asia trade, yet the pair seems to have stabilized around 109.40 for the time being, with investors also keeping a close eye on the protests in Hong Kong. Japan’s miraculous jobless rate Japan’s jobless rate unexpectedly dropped to 3.5% in August (the market [...] Continue Reading ...
