What jumps out at me today is the EURUSD range which is MOSTLY above the 1.1338 pivot.Where we are trading relative to the pivot could set the tone.

Is Negative Balance Protection Fool's Gold?
GVI Forex Jay Meisler 11:28 GMT 01/28/2015  - My Profile

Several forex brokers are now publicizing negative balance protection for their clients. This is good marketing after several brokers reported negative balances seen after the SNB fiasco but is it really significant? As we all know, forex brokers are not charities but for profit businesses and are not in the habit of giving away money to their clients. So, is negative balance protection a reason to open an account or is there a hidden factor that makes this look more than it is?

overnight options are looking at something in the region of 80 pips. but of course they include the fed. for me fed not open and shut as part of mkt seems to look for some caution, while other side expects no change in normalisation.
big question is is yellen willing to look thru this latest headwind. if so, then the statement will be taken as hawkish by fx mkt. if theres any reference to external factors and a hint of hesitation, then dollar takes a hit. might boil down to whether considerable time stays in or not as to calling it either hawkish or dovish.

since the break higher, euro has been supported by 89 hour ema, there has been no close below this so far despite a few attempts below. currently 11337. if below there then support at 11314 prev low and 100 hour ma 11309. any further than that and selling could cascade but you wonder how much conviction any move will have with the fed approaching.

"After the 1987 crash, a friend of mine, then a young Director of Sotheby’s, was sent to consult an old Partner who had been at Sotheby’s during the 1930s and was still alive, albeit in a nursing home. My friend asked the question “What was it like in the 30s?” and the man replied “It was like being bitten by a tarantula.” My friend didn’t really understand that, but later on in the conversation the old Partner said“A spasm of activity followed by a death.”"

China Job Growth Accelerates in 4Q - Survey WSJ
Syd 05:40 GMT 01/28/2015
BEIJING--China's job market remained robust in the fourth quarter of last year despite slower economic growth, with the number of job postings rising faster than the previous quarter, according to a survey from, one of China's largest online recruitment companies.

The number of online job postings climbed 37% in the final quarter of 2014 from a year earlier, up from an on-year increase of 23% in the third quarter, the recruiter said in a statement released on Wednesday.

The survey results show that "the downward pressure on economic growth has not notably dragged on the entire employment market yet," Zhaopin said.

They also show that the government doesn't need to roll out aggressive easing measures to stimulate economic growth in the near future, the statement said.

The financial sector had the biggest appetite for talented workers, with the number of vacancies rising 48% on year in the fourth quarter. The number of job postings from trust companies, guarantee firms, auction firms and pawn shops surged 327%, while those from the banking sector rose 216%.

The financial sector will likely remain the most avid employer this year as the internet finance industry competes for job seekers who have skill sets in finance and telecommunications.

A prolonged property market downturn has directly hit the sector's job creation, with postings rising a mere 6% in the fourth quarter, the weakest among all sectors, the survey showed.

Job growth in regions surrounding Beijing and Shanghai are still vibrant. For the full year of 2014, smaller cities such as Hangzhou, Tianjin, Chengdu, Chongqing and Suzhou saw rapid job creation.

Private firms are more active than state-owned enterprises and foreign companies in hiring. The job postings from private companies rose 40% in the fourth quarter, much higher than that of both state and foreign companies.

Middle-sized employers, with between 1,000 and 10,000 employees, saw the number of jobs growing 33% in the last quarter, while those with more than 10,000 employees reported a job growth of 3% in the fourth quarter, following a contraction in jobs over the first three quarters.

China's economy expanded 7.3% in the fourth quarter of year, bringing the full-year economic growth rate to 7.4%, the slowest in decades for the world's second-largest economy.


AU) CommSec chief economist: Australia inflation remains healthy without being excessive - Source Tr
Syd 05:18 GMT 01/28/2015
(AU) CommSec chief economist: Australia inflation remains healthy without being excessive "Economic environment in Australia is far different from some other parts of the globe. The euro zone continues to worry about the deflationary threat from sluggish growth and sliding oil prices, while inflation remains below the Feds target rate in the US. But here in Australia inflation is holding at the low end of the Reserve Banks target 2-3%.... It is pretty clear that inflation is not a threat to the domestic economy, meaning that the Reserve Bank can comfortably keep interest rates at exceptionally low levels over the medium term. Domestic inflationary pressures remain well contained and given the slow growth in wages it is unlikely to result in a change to the domestic inflation landscape.... Interestingly despite the sharp slide in the Aussie dollar over the September and December quarters, it did not have a significant impact on lifting imported inflation at least, not yet. The tradeable component of the CPI result fell by 0.6% in the December quarter. The substantial slide in the oil price continues to offset the depreciation in the currency. In fact the fall in the petrol price was one of the main contributors to the subdued inflation result.... Whichever way you cut it, inflation is not a threat to the economy and the Reserve Bank will not be feeling any additional pressure to move rates in any direction any time soon." - Source

USD/SGD - ....... Singapore MAS spokesperson says central bank's main policy cycle remains as scheduled in April and October each year; central bank has always maintained flexibility to conduct off-cycle policy reviews, will do so when needed; their next monetary policy review will be as scheduled in April; "barring significant shocks", 2015 inflation, growth forecasts would likely be reaffirmed at April review.

Earlier the sing dlr fell the most since 2010 in early Asian trading after the MAS surprised the market by easing its monetary policy, dlr sing jumped from 1.3392 to as high as 1.3570 (a fresh 4-year peak).

Bloomberg reported the Monetary Authority of Singapore, which uses the currency as its main policy tool, said it will reduce the slope of the policy band for the island's dollar in an unscheduled policy statement Wed. It also cut the inflation forecast for 2015, predicting prices may fall as much as 0.5%.

Singapore becomes at least the 9th economy to ease policy this month as global price pressures evaporate with an oil slump, after the ECB announced QE plans while Canada, Denmark n India cut interest rates. More may come -- the BoJ chief said the country may need to get creative in any further monetary stimulus and Thai policy makers face growing pressure to lower borrowing costs.

Australian dollar jumps as rate cut bets cut on stronger-than-expected core inflation
gc sf 03:21 GMT 01/28/2015
"Official figures show that falling petrol prices have reduced headline inflation, but other prices have continued rising, keeping the Reserve Bank's preferred measures within its target range.
The Bureau of Statistics Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose 0.2 per cent in the December quarter, down from a 0.5 per cent rise in the previous three-month period.
That took the annual rate of inflation down to 1.7 per cent, from its previous level at 2.3 per cent in the September quarter.
While that is below the Reserve Bank's 2-3 per cent target range, the vast bulk of the decline came from falling fuel prices, which slumped 6.8 per cent on the back of a global oil price slide.
The Reserve Bank's preferred measures of underlying inflation, which exclude the most volatile price movements, rose 0.7 per cent in the quarter and 2.2 and 2.3 per cent over the past year, still within its target range."

EUR/USD - ...... Despite yesterday's rally to 1.1424 due to active short-covering, renewed selling there knocked price lower to 1.1333 in NY and then 1.1331 today.
Offers are tipped at 1.1390-00 and more at 1.1420-25.
On the downside, some bids are located at 1.1310-00 with stops seen below 1.1290.

According to Lars Loekke Rasmussen, the 50-year-old leader of Denmark opposition and the man who polls consistently show will become prime minister after elections due to take place by September. He said there's no point setting a date for a referendum on swapping Denmark's currency peg for full euro membership.

Yesterday despite the release of upbeat U.S. consumer confi., broad-based strength in European currencies pushed euro higher and price extended intra-day rally from 1.1224 (Asia) to 1.1422 in NY morning before easing due to some profit-taking.

Wednesday will see the release of Australia's Westpac leading index, CPI, RBA Trimmed Mean CPI, Switzerland UBS Consumption indicator, Germany's Gfk Consumer Sentiment, Import Price index, France's Consumer Confidence, FOMC rate decision and monetary policy statement.

The higher than expected readings on underlying measures (+0.7% versus expected +0.5%) suggest that the Reserve Bank will need to see a pullback in activity before deciding that a further cut in rates is necessary, he added.
