GMT 3:51 – EURO @ 1.3258= Couple of big events are the movers and shakers of the market. It was not decision to hold rates by BOE & ECB that was the cause of US Dollar weakness. It was ECB President Draghi’s comments that its members decision on holding the rates is unanimous. Softer rate always makes currency less attractive, as we saw similar move last week that helped US Dollar surged after FED’s FOMC minutes. Basically its the interest rate differential advantage edge to the high yielding currency that makes it more attractive.
I think there are combination of factors that has helped market to rise after the looming US fiscal cliff factor and quieter condition in Europe on its sovereign debt issue, though its economy is lacking the required growth pace, but Europe has so far avoided recession, bond yields are back to the desired level and capital outflow has surely stopped, ECB President confirmed that the money has started to flow in Euro-zone region. Further, positive economic data signaling China’s economic growth is also another big supporting factor that is helping the overall global sentiment.
But we should not forget that European growth remains a suspect. Draghi has already said that risk to European growth is on the downside. Unemployment is on a constant rise, manufacturing sector is not performing well and Europe’s growth engine Germany is wobbling. So do keep a close watch on European Economic data, as this optimism could be short lived if the economy fails to recover, which also means talk of European rate cut will emerge. Euro’s surge is surly overdone and it still needs to surpass 1.33, we could see a drop from top before possibly making another upside feeble attempt.
EURO @ 1.3258= Euro could top out around 1.3280-90 for 1.3235-40 zones and break of 1.3210 is required for more losses. Apply STOP if 1.3340 breaks.
GMT 4:07 – GOLD @ $ 1672 = Could holds $ 1665-67 levels for another upside feeble attempt towards $ 1675-78 zones. I am not comfortable buying above $ 1675, as I still see risk for big drop. Needs to fall below $ 1658-62 zones for more losses.
GMT 4:00 – JPY @ 89.02 = could test 88.65-70 zones but unlikely to hit 88.40 for test of 89.30-35 zones
GMT 3:57 – AUD @ 1.0580 = Sell around 1.0610-15 for 1.0535 or 1.0535. Stopout at 1.0645
GMT 3:56 – GBP @ 1.6149 = Top around 1.6175-80 for 1.6095. Stops at 1.6210
