Currencies/Fixed Income:
- FX dealers were forming at the mouths in anticipation of volatility/eventful in the session later today with BOE and ECB rate decisions coupled with key US data (advanced Q3 GDP and weekly jobless claims) ahead of Friday's Non-Farm Payroll report. Today's ECB policy decision has discounted the small risk of a rate cut, but Draghi could lay the groundwork for a move in December. Earlier in the week dealers noted of 'good size' buying of 1.3350 Euro 1-week puts as any break below 1.34 opened the momentum for further downside test in the pair. Euro tested (and held) 4-month uptrend line at 1.3440 as well earlier this week. The 1.3410-30 area was once solid resistance back in both mid-June and late Aug before the Fed held off on its tapering in its Sept decision.
- In the USD/JPY pair a sustained break above 99.00 could provide next upward momentum in pair as the level now corresponded to the current resistance line of the 2013 consolidation range since hitting highs of 103.62 back on May 23rd and low of 93.77 on June 14th
- No surprises

- (EU) Canadian ratings agency DBRS still positive on Spain and Italy sovereign ratings; have emerged from the acute portions of the crisis but are in 'wait and see' - financial press
- (EU) German Fin Min Schaeuble presented new proposal for winding up banks
- (PT)Portugal PM Coehlo reiterates expectations to conclude the bailout in June of 2014; too soon to speculate on support for Portugal post bailout; it is a positive sing that the Portugal 10 year yield has moved below 6%
- (US) Treasury: Borrowing costs measurably increased as a result of the debt ceiling showdown; Congress should raise the debt limit well before the deadline at Feb 7th
- (CN) China big four banks Oct new loans said to be CNY182B (lowest amount in 2013
