1. Yields in EU continue to confound -- what is the expected purpose of ECB QE?? Lower rates ?? LTRO as a cure for what -- the rates would exceed anything the bank could earn on the borrowed funds?? // maybe EUR rally after ECB measures fail to appear or fall short of rational expectation // SNB may be getting nervous below EUR/CHF 50

2. Sterling "strength" has been blamed by UK companies for performance problems (e.g., WPP) - EUR/GBP keeps pressure on BoE w/ only a narrow window for hikes // if market pushes rate hike expectations out beyond May that would cure "strength" pretty quick

3. Last but not least AUD/USD back up near wkly 21/55 MAs - 94.55 is 89 ema so between here and there might be a long term sell point

Trader Alert: Beware of Forex Bucket Shops
GVI Forex Jay Meisler 10:31 GMT 08/27/2014  - My Profile

I get asked a lot for suggestions about specific brokers and which broker to choose. Some brokers I never heard of and it got me to thinking about the different tiers of forex brokers. It also got me to thinking about the term forex “bucket shop.” This generally refers to a broker who “buckets” all or most of its trades and takes them on its own books without going to the market (it may pass through the trades of profitable traders only). In other words, it is betting on the statistics that most retail forex traders lose money and thus is willing to take the other side of most trades. The question is why should you care?

The USD consolidated its recent gains despite some economic misses out of the EMU data front today. The EUR/USD was trying to regain some posture above the 1.32 handle. The pair hit a fresh 11-month ow in Asia at 1.3152. Some Euro short-covering was encountered after reports that Germany Fin Min Schaeuble believed that ECBs' Draghi's comments at Jackson Hole on growth austerity debate might have been 'over interpreted'. Overall dealers continue to believe that Euro upside would be curtailed given the weakness in data.

I've always wondered about the mechanics of cross-border take-overs. There is no way money will be transferred until the transaction has been approved by all parties, including government authorities. On the other hand, at some point a price has to be fixed, and that includes the exchange rate. That could be done early on via forward contracts, which would not involve a transfer of funds, but would immediately impact the forex markets.

Whether they hedge or not, either way the parties are taking a significant exchange risk depending on whether the deal goes though or not. Keep in mind, these days a lot of deals ultimately don't happen.

Anyone have thoughts?

200 day looks at risk as if we see some dollar sales in the major then you fancy loonie wont stay where it is. thing risk to 10840-60 possible, but think longs down there with stops under 1.08 should work for 1.10 in sept.

The only key event Wednesday is the 5-yr auction. Major data follow later in the month. A key focus of trade otherwise is the upcoming ECB decision in just over one week's time where ECB President Draghi is expected to announce or at least hint at additional policy ease. We heard (unconfirmed) of reports of a secret agreement between Yellen an Draghi to weaken the EURUSD. This is possible. .

Intra-Day Market Moving New and Views

27 Aug 2014 08:43GMT

GBP/USD -..... Despite a marginal breach of yesterday's low at 1.6539 to 1.6537 at Asian open, lack of follow-through selling triggered short-covering n the British pound rose to 1.6575 in early European morning. However, renewed selling emerged there n pressured the pair lower to 1.6554. Further choppy trading is likely to be seen ahead of NY open due partly to the absence of eco. data releases from UK.

Offers have now been raised to 1.6590/00 n more abv at 1.6610/15 with stops building up abv there whilst initial bids are noted at 1.6520/30.

This morning trading cable was tricky on Tue as despite an initial rebound from 1.6566 to 1.6595 in Asia, renewed broad-based strength in greenback capped intra-day gain n the pound later fell in tandem with euro to 1.6540 near NY close. Price briefly weakened to 1.6537 shortly after Asian open on renewed decline in eur/usd, however, bids abv Mon's fresh 4-1/2 month low at 1.6535 lifted price.

Bids are noted at 1.6540-35 with stop below 1.6530 but demand from real money accounts are touted near 1.6500/05. On the upside, offers are located at 1.6560/70 n more at 1.6590/00 with stop reported abv 1.6620, therefore, selling cable on intra-day recovery is the way to go. No U.K. data are due out today, so the pound shud track intra-day move in eur/usd.

Current Conditions: Risk On/Off
GVI Forex john 08:57 GMT 08/27/2014  - My Profile

Current Market Conditions:
Early in Europe markets are in a mixed  RISK posture again with equities up and bond yields lower..Additional ECB ease at its meeting in just over one week's time is already being priced in. holding below the1.3200 line.

  • Yields in prime Eurozone fixed income markets have fallen on the dovish ECB view. The 10-yr bund is 0.92%  -3bp. The 10-yr 1.00% line remains an obvious market benchmark. Peripheral bond yields are lower.
  • The U.K. 10-yr gilt  yield is 2.43%  -2bp. I expect a +25bp BOE rate hike in February 2015, subject to future data.
  • U.S.10-yr yield is 2.37%, -2bp.. The psychological pivot is 2.40%.
  • Far East equities closed mostly higher. Bourses in Europe are slightly lower. 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).

finally it seems we are getting some profit taking, whether its month end or pre long weekend i dont know, but it shouldnt mean the dollar run is over medium term.

DJ Overvalued Australian Dollar May Be Risk to Living Standards -- Market Talk
Syd 03:18 GMT 08/27/2014
The Reserve Bank of Australia's desire for a lower Australian dollar is not surprising, says Su-Lin Ong, Head of Strategy at RBC Capital Markets, Australia. "The alternative hints at lower national income and living standards," she adds. Lost external competitiveness resulting from the high currency, which is 20% above its long term average, means wages must fall to compensate, she said. The environment supports Ong's expectation of falling national income, sub par consumption, and a lower-for-longer central bank narrative regarding interest rates. The risk is that rigidities in the labor market prevent meaningful competitiveness gains, pushing the unemployment rate higher, she added. "That would keep the RBA in play," Ong said.

DJ Downside Risk to Australian 2Q GDP Forecast -- Market Talk
Syd 03:17 GMT 08/27/2014
1.2% fall in the value of Australian construction work done in the second quarter compared with the first has put a dent in expectations for GDP growth forecasts. Adam Boyton, chief economist at Deutsche Bank said there are now downside risks to his call for GDP growth of just 0.5% in the quarter, to be reported in a week's time. The main downside concern was a big fall in private engineering construction, where Boyton had expected a gain.

Syd 03:16 GMT 08/27/2014
I’ve written here before (and maybe it is a bit of hyperbole on my part) saying Australia has become a
satellite country of China, from an economic perspective. Maybe that isn’t true, but there still seems
plenty of fallout left for the Australian economy whose massive build in mining capacity coincided
nicely with the boom in Chinese real estate.

Intra-Day Market Moving New and Views EUR/USD

27 Aug 2014 01:55GMT
EUR/USD - .... The single currency continues its recent losing streak and easily penetrated o/n NY low at 1.3164 to a fresh near 1-year trough of 1.315q after tripping stops below said yesterday low, however, bids above rumoured 1.3150 option barrier contained intra-day weakness.

We may well see a repeat of the price action seen in last 2 days in Asia, that is euro hits intra-day lows at Asian open n then stages a decent recovery into European open b4 coming off later in the day, so chasing present decline is not a good bet. Bids are noted at 1.3150 n more above daily sup at 1.3105, on the upside, offers are tipped at 1.3175/80 n more above would stop (fairly large) touted above 1.3220, suggesting selling the single currency on rally is the way to go.

Eco. data from the EZ today which may move price are Germany Gfk consumer confidence index at 06:00GMT, then French bus. confidence at 06:45GMT and then Italy's consumer confidence at 08:00GMT. No data are due out from the U.S. today.

News from last night, Russia's Utair airline said its MI-8 helicopter was shot down in South Sudan, according to preliminary information.

everyday NZD has had its high around 9 am Sydney and sold off 40-50 points per day.

today around that time the low was put in around that 28 level and ever since it has climbed higher.

not sure what that means for the other markets - but I just point it out as being a change in pattern.

This morning however 3 different models came in to buy @41-42 in GBP and it was still quite offered until another model kicked in and bght @40.5 - that seemed to affirm o/sold and stabilize it at the 45-46-47 levels.
