  • Chris : France's Hollande says euro too strong and inflation too low

    Friendly bear: Ah well Hollande's ability to affect EUR exchange rate is confirmed as non-existent. As for the market it looks like DXY is sounding retreat. A retrace towards 81.20-81.40 is looking more and more obvious now. That should correspond to EUR/USD around 1.34 and GBP/USD around 1.68 level. Also, from personal observations it now feels like a lot of people finally went short EUR/USD with conviction and are frustrated with yesterday's bounce. It's usually a good combination for a short squeeze. I'm adding to yesterday's EUR and GBP long here. - August 28th, 2014 08:43:07 AM

    English: I do not know why, but when i see headlines like "France’s Hollande says euro too strong and inflation too low" I have visions of EU bureaucrats sticking their head out of the bedroom windows and yelling the headline to who ever happens to be listening? The statements they make unlike the chaps from the ECB are over the top at moving markets deliberately dijsselbloem being the master, although he is a bit blatant. - August 28th, 2014 08:28:15 AM

    d murray: Regarding the EUR, the thing I keep thinking about is that (as of now at least) it's a question of how much more dovish the ECB and Draghi will sound rather than whether or not they will sound more dovish. Sure this has been largely priced in, and incoming info could change things (there is a lot of econ releases coming up), but I still tend to think that EUR sentiment will remain somewhat bearish. Sure it could go up, but its not worth it to me. Wait and see I suppose. Here's hoping CAD continues to correct! Good luck everyone. - August 28th, 2014 02:29:31 AM

  • Harry : The Australian investment machine is ramping up again

    User Avatar
    Harry: I think you have your rose coloured glasses on Adam, there are some pretty ugly things happening in Aus right now that will probably make the media in about 3 months time. One of them happens to be a housing market on the brink of collapse. The other is the fact that Chevrons Gorgan project (biggest gas project in the world) can't find buyers at the price Chevron would like so we could have a massive glut on our hands. No harm trying to talk up the Aussie dollar but my guess it will get very untidy. Just my humble opinion. - August 28th, 2014 02:41:41 AM
    User Avatar
    CreditPhil: I think your headline is too flattering. I guess you were long and happy! Have a look at the numbers in details: seasonally adjusted vs trend, actual vs expected, etc… So yes, AUD is performing well, no question there, but the local picture is still mixed (no gloom, no rebound, no rebalancing either). - August 28th, 2014 02:38:39 AM
