well its made a lower low, last daily low was 10934, weve gone a little below before bouncing back. 200 day ma excepted at 10911, youd look at 10880/65/50 now but youre not going to have usdjpy and usdcad breaking in opposite directions for long.
fwiw audcad i have weekly trendlines crossing at 9815 this week.

we heard at the start of the year that a range of 90-110 is acceptable for the majority of japanese firms influenced by the rate.

the usdcad rate on the other hand looks decidely offered. they have tried to join the dollar rally all day and there have been some big up spikes, but just keeps getting sold. i didnt buy the dip to 35/40, just feels heavy.

So far USDJPY HOD is 107.62. Dead on PIvot point R2 of 107.62. We view to use pivot points as a zone around the levels we publish. they can be used as stop-loss or take profit levels.

Markets remain in a MIXED RISK posture heading into the FOMC decision later and the Scottish referendum vote tomorrow. Many are now expecting no change the the "extended time period"  by the Fed today. Also latest polls appear to favor a no vote in Scotland tomorrow but the vote is still to close to call.

  • Yields in prime Eurozone fixed income markets are lower. The 10-yr bund is 1.05%, -1.0bp. Peripheral bond yields are lower.
  • The U.K.10-yr gilt yield is 2.52% -1bp. BOE Gov Carney has signaled a Spring 2015 rate hike.
  • U.S.10-yr yield is 2.573%,  -0.6bp. Psychological pivot is 2.50%.
  • Far East equities closed mixed . Bourses in Europe are closing higher. U.S. shares are up.

    The heat map color scheme of interest rates reflects yields. This aligns all the colors in the chart to reflect risk-on (green) and risk-off(red).

With all the media (3 or 5 or 6 Things to watch) about a phrase or term there has been no meaningful discussion of the Fed's business cycle outlook -- the dots are unrealistic projections of the status quo // What if economy moves into recession with ZIRP in effect? How much of a headwind does the continued negative real rate contribute to a stronger economy?

CNBC's Steve Liesman backing off on his forecast that the Fed would be removing the "extended time period" wording from its policy statement. He started the talk about the removal of those terms about one week ago. People felt he was revealing something authoritative, but it turned out it was just his OPINION.

The fed can't raise rates until they figure out what to do with the losers on their balance sheet, its not about the QUANTITY it about the QUALITY on the balance sheet.

I keep a close watch on July 2015 Fed Funds futures as a measure of market sentiment. What could be a better indicator of sentiment than the level at which actual supply and demand are in balance? Currently they are predicting two 25bp rate hikes by the maturity of that contract. Odds roughly now are 100% on that scenario. Fed Funds futures have not been reliable forecasts in the past, but as I said, they reflect current sentiment.

Hawkish sentiment for the Fed decision later today has been waning. The surprise now would be if the Fed REMOVES the "extended time period" language in their statement.

pollsters will come v badly out of this, biut like ratings agencies after lehman. do remember that scot population is over 5m and mini 85% will vote, probably more than 90%. polls generally only 1000 samples. also remember polls are votes without consequence. thats why even exit polls differ from the outcome quite often.
gbp downside is quite large and protracted on a yes, while the no is likely to see a small rebound which is going to get sold into although it should close friday higher than thursday close, as people will take the opp to position themselves from fed normalising policy going forward. we know carney will raise in spring, thats in the price. i am looking for 16485-16630 max for cable.

officially result due 7am bst but the final result will be collated from 32 regions which will come in at different times and that means there are likely to be leaks along the way. at some point during the night, the market will start leaning sharply to one side. there are still a few polls due today and tomorrow. today: 1700gmt stv, 2100gmt sunday times. with the no vote being largely expected the surprise can only come on the yes side.

I heard a forex guy out of London say earlier that the GBPUSD falls 5% om a YES vote for independence and that it will not react much to a NO vote.

One reason for the 25% chance of a YES vote by bettors is said to be because of how the polls deal with the "soft" NO votes. The view is that the rough 52%-48% against independence understates the opposition.

As for how the vote is likely to turn out, I only can pass along what I hear. I do know that voters in the UK have a long history of confounding pollsters. So nothing would surprise me.

As for the market reaction, I agree that the reaction to a pro-independence vote will be greater.

Any thoughts on all of this??

london red 12:09 GMT 09/17/2014
couple of trendlines on 15 min chart at 16306 and 16285, priced has closed abv both all day, but the first steeper line (currently 16306) has been breached intrabar, although no close below. while cpi core at 0.2 seems about right, the main cpi f/c at 0.0% might be set a bit low and could easily come in at 0.1% which might just give a small pop to the dollar. i would use any fall in cable to buy intraday. yes the fed is later and interest normally tails off but with the referendum in play the urge to position for the no will be too great and that should be enough to sustain trade between 16320 and 16350 before some profit take ahead of fed.

Vote result should be available sometime early morning hour local time on the 19th.

couple of imp fibs at 16323 and 16347. if they get through the latter and stay abv 16350, its likely market is partially pricing in the "no" outcome and i dont think there will be much joy in trying to top pick before the result. after result initial topside could be from 16485 upwards, but you cant see a move abv 16650. in the event of a no i would be looking to sell c. 16605. as said before the market wont wait for the result and will start moving earlier.
