EURCZK: Next to Pull the Peg?

Updated  Jan 23, 2015 3:17:32 PM

You know, it can’t be easy being a central banker right about now.  Currencies are swinging wildly on whims of individuals whom are likely growing gray hairs just thinking about what they should do next.  As my colleague Matthew Weller outlined earlier, the central bank world appears to be at war with one another, with the biggest player, the Federal Reserve, maintaining neutrality.  Of course, it could be argued that the Fed started this  [...] Continue Reading ...

AUDCAD: Parity or Parody?

Updated  Jan 22, 2015 11:26:08 AM

The day that every currency trader the world over had circled on their calendar has arrived as the European Central Bank has introduced their long anticipated Quantitative Easing program at their monthly meeting this morning.  The pulling of the EUR/CHF peg by the Swiss National Bank last week only served to increase the excitement and tension around the ECB’s meeting, and the ECB served up a QE program that satiated the masses to the tune  [...] Continue Reading ...

EURCAD: In the Belly of the Central Bank Beasts

Updated  Jan 21, 2015 4:05:23 PM

Earlier today, I wrote an article that basically tried to stay as far away from the central bank drama as possible by relaying the message to “Avoid the Noid.”  The “Noid” in this instance is the noise that will be created by the European Central Bank decision tomorrow where they are expected to introduce Quantitative Easing to the tune of at least €50 billion per month.  Before the ECB could take the stage though,  [...] Continue Reading ...

AUDNZD: Avoid the Noid

Updated  Jan 21, 2015 11:25:04 AM

Well, I suppose we asked for this, didn’t we.  Volatility in currency markets is bordering on insane as a variety of events have hit the wires over the last week or so.  From the Swiss National Bank pulling the rug out on their EUR/CHF peg to European Central Bank rumors of Quantitative Easing and everything in between, the market is kicking in to overreaction overdrive.  Sprinkle in market moving central bank meetings from  [...] Continue Reading ...

GBPJPY: Resistance Looming

Updated  Jan 19, 2015 11:55:43 AM

The shock and awe of the Swiss National Bank’s actions late last week are still reverberating around the currency world as the fallout from the decision to pull the peg is still being sorted out.  The EUR/CHF in particular has appeared to find equilibrium as it has oscillated around parity since Friday.  Many have argued that the action by the SNB was in direct relation to their having knowledge of what the European Central Bank  [...] Continue Reading ...

Only the Fed can save EURUSD now…

Updated  Jan 16, 2015 8:55:00 AM

EURUSD has continued to fall on Friday and made a fresh 12 year low today at 1.1576. The recovery is tepid so far, as the market continues to choke over the SNB news. As we mentioned HERE yesterday, the problem for the EUR is twofold: 1, the SNB is no longer the EUR buyer of last resort since it abandoned its peg. 2, it makes it likely that the ECB will embark on some form  [...] Continue Reading ...

Gold surges on SNB news, technical buying

Updated  Jan 15, 2015 11:55:00 AM

Gold has soared above the technical resistance area of $1240/5 and for the first time since early September the shiny metal is holding its own above the 200-day moving average ($1253). There are a number of factors which have helped to drive the price of gold higher in recent days, not least the increased volatility in the stock markets. Today it has been lent additional buoyancy by news from the Swiss National Bank which shockingly  [...] Continue Reading ...

Swiss shocker 2.0: After the dust settles

Updated  Jan 15, 2015 11:20:00 AM

The calm after the storm. After the SNB’s surprise decision to scrap its 1.20 EURCHF peg, this pair is trying to find its new equilibrium  around 1.0500, but it has come after a turbulent day when EURCHF fell to as low as 0.8517 at one stage. If EURCHF does settle somewhere around 1.05 – 1.10 zone then Swiss exporters and those that hold CHF-denominated debt need to get used to a new normal where the  [...] Continue Reading ...

EURUSD: Hammered Again

Updated  Jan 15, 2015 11:08:26 AM

Is it safe to take my hands away from my eyes yet?  Much like my girlfriend when watching a scary movie, I had the urge to simply stop looking at the EUR/CHF and USD/CHF as untold numbers of traders are learning a very expensive lesson about “next available price.”  The carnage that has been witnessed in the currency market over the last several hours due to the actions of the Swiss National Bank abandoning the  [...] Continue Reading ...

CHF Safe Haven Comeback: Why the SNB’s Shocking Decision May Hurt the Buck

Updated  Jan 15, 2015 8:55:00 AM

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard that the SNB made the shocking decision to drop its peg at 1.20 in the EURCHF, prompting the Swiss franc to surge around 15% across the board (for instant analysis on the decision, see my colleague Kathleen Brooks’ report, “SNB Shocker: EURCHF Peg Comes to an End”). It’s as if the SNB was a child holding a beach ball (the franc) underwater, and without warning,  [...] Continue Reading ...
