    Si: JC Juncker is asking the European parliament today to support his plan for a 300 billion Euro`s investment package to bolster growth and create jobs.

    Si: The Conference Board Leading Economic Index for Spain has declined 0.2% in August following advances in June and July. The market seems to be jumping on any negatives and this could be a new trend for Spain and so I remain short EURJPY and will add on a break of the October 16th low if we get there - October 22nd, 2014 08:13:06 AM

    peter: @boris - buying euro is going against the longer term trend, especially on a CPI day. If CPI surprises on the upside you are going to get whacked by the market. I think the US is in good shape and after the crap cpi last month, it is unlikely to drop again and might surprise. If we are averaging about 110 pip range on the eur usd any surprise will certainly fill whatever void in the range for the rest of the day. - October 22nd, 2014 08:03:15 AM

    grasshopper: just went long EURGBP as well. EU is tempting me with its siren song, but i think i'll wait a little longer before taking the plunge... need to make sure the TL holds support and price climbs above last year's low and stays above it, not to mention the WPP which could turn resistance, all levels too close to market atm. - October 22nd, 2014 06:54:31 AM

They have the housing slowdown to come, see yet and figures show when someone moves they put on average of £8000 of extra spending in the economy in the first 2 years that would not have been there otherwise. Thats also not taking in loss of confidence in general fear, people slow or stop spending, Builders are already fearful of whether there be finance for people to buy at normal levels going forward, atvb Chris - October 22nd, 2014 08:47:16 AM

    Si: Well the muddied waters recently gave this Sterling bull serious cause for concern but now my mind is made up. Looks like 2016 could be talked about in the markets before long. Just exited my EURGBP`s which did very well but might recover. The probability isn`t high enough now though. EURYENs are the big white hope now. Output gap larger than expected will weigh heavily which really made my mind up. Core CPI is the one to watch this after. If that, which doesn`t include energy, comes out soft, we`ll see some action then ;) - October 22nd, 2014 08:46:06 AM
