Eamonn Sheridan: Hi Minotaurus Overall i like AUD/USD sideways to higher. Not sure on AUD/CAD though. - July 13th, 2014 09:53:08 PM
minotaurus: Eamonn, what do you think about shorting AUD/CAD at these levels ? - July 13th, 2014 09:48:38 PM
Mary: Good morning Eamonn, The Loonie is not one I watch that often but it is looking more appealing from a technical point of view. Watching the trading channel for any breakout here. Cable: same here..watching the trading channel. GBP/JPY: looking for another bounce off 173. Congrats to Germany! The game wasn't a patch on Swans v Carlton though!

Brent Carlile: Fed doves are as predictable as reading off of a script (real trading based on Fed comments is not easy and I don't want to portray it as so... but Fed doves moving the inflation goalposts was no shocker by any means) . So basically, step 1 is to complain about low inflation and create a deflation boogey man even as house prices increase by 14% y/y (the Case Shiller index rate earlier this year during the heart of the scaaaary deflation panic) and food commodities rise by 10-20%. Step 2 is to learn your deflation fears were absurd and even the substitution-riddled and hedonically adjusted official inflation measures are already near (PCE) or above (CPI) the magical 2% target much sooner than expected. Unemployment has fallen much faster than the Fed predicted as well. Step 3 logically is to move the goal posts on inflation rather than live up to the data dependent boiler plate slogan. Nobody should be surprised. That is why the the US data doesn't matter as much right now and volatility is nill - an uber perma dovish central bank will use data to justify their positions when convenient and ignore the data as "noise" when not. Dollar bulls beware. - July 14th, 2014 05:20:11 AM
Ice: Should have been Messi lifting the trophy.. - July 14th, 2014 03:17:16 AM
AlexIE: I agree with that play. It was a red card for the German goalie. - July 14th, 2014 12:41:43 AM
Tsee: Australia went out of the World Cup swinging. I have to say, though I am pleased with the Germans, and the World Cup deserved that goal rather than a penalty, but Neuer totaled the Argentine knowing it'd happen, and that for me was a penalty and a red card. It'd have ruined the game, but no one will care now. - July 13th, 2014 11:39:39 PM
rouge trader: I hope CIA will penetrate the German football and share the info with fellow anglosaxon countries like Australia lol. - July 13th, 2014 10:38:48 PM
AlexIE: Three teams went home undefeated: Germany, Costa Rica and the Netherlands. I think that's the first time that's happened. - July 13th, 2014 09:57:41 PM
TomNZ: Congratulations and commiserations. Did we manage to get a smile from the Chancellor? - July 13th, 2014 09:48:57 PM
Eamonn Sheridan: Hi Eddie Yes - I see his jawboning from Friday (http://www.forexlive.com/blog/2014/07/11/rbas-stevens-exercises-his-jawbone-sees-material-fall-in-aud-at-some-point/) And, I should point out, Kelly warned us of this last week, very nicely done! - I didn't see it coming. But yeah Eddie - AUD has had very little downside reaction . For me it shows the underlying buying still around. next 1-3 weeks, more sideways with a bias higher (same as what I've been saying for a good while now ... so more of the same) - BUT ... this thread is for the soccer! - July 13th, 2014 09:48:49 PM
Orly: Congratulations to the Germans for a great performance. Congratulations to Brazil for putting on a most dramatic show. But most of all, congratulations to FIFA. I started this month complaining about the style of play allowed to go on in World Cup games because of what we call in the States excessive "flopping." Whining and carrying on do not endear themselves to American tastes in sports. The year, though, the referees made them play football and essentially ignored idiotic writhing around on the field. Play. The. Game. FIFA and futbol (soccer...) won a lot of American fans this time, myself included. - July 13th, 2014 09:46:53 PM
Tsee: I am happy to be wrong, though I may be making the same mistakes trading. I knew Germany was the stronger team, but I wanted to bet on a story. It turned out that Messi just never showed his full potential--again. - July 13th, 2014 09:43:54 PM
eddie: Hi Eamon, Yeaa...Germany win.... Now..I need your opinions...RBA Steven keep down the AUD by words...twices last week...BUT AUD keep hold the down moved.... DO you think the AUD will go UP...? or It will go downin this coming 1-3 weeks ...? Thanks, Cheers - July 13th, 2014 09:43:26 PM

Eamonn Sheridan: Grrr .. .you are right TR - I'm gonna correct the text in the post. - July 13th, 2014 10:16:34 PM
TR: Hi Eamonn, A bit confused here. Um... 21:30 GMT was over half an hour ago? And probably it's services this time. You covered manufacturing last week: http://www.forexlive.com/blog/2014/07/09/new-zealand-business-nz-manufacturing-pmi-result-10-july-2014/ - July 13th, 2014 10:14:27 PM
nate: Lower for this week. But more on USD bullishness than EUR bearishness. down to 1.3525 is next before higher. Lots of consolidation. That's the game here. https://www.tradingview.com/x/j8MnIZXN - July 13th, 2014 07:59:34 PM
Yet Another Ryan: Deflation is the symptom not the disease. A shrinking population, needs ever less consumption and requires less ongoing investment than a growing population. Higher prices of imports neither makes more babies nor will it increase immigrants nor will it cause people to earn and consume more to offset the fall in population. A successful policy needs to be more about birth rates than import prices or expectations. Set up singles clubs, encourage social interaction, give out money for having babies, pay the expenses associated with pregnancy, create social conditions to break down the social barriers and stigmas that prevent young people from breeding. That is what will make Abenomics a resounding success. Otherwise, it is just economic cranks manipulating measurements. Probably too sensitive to talk about? I don't know. Pretty obvious when you look at the aggregates, especially as baby boomers leave the work force and consume less and less as they come closer to their demise. - July 13th, 2014 07:53:14 PM
