Reporters asked: How many of Duncan's younger contacts were in school this week? Why weren't the four individuals quarantined in a medical facility? Why weren't soiled linens that likely carry the virus immediately removed? 



The event became increasingly confrontational.



Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings scolded journalists for being "part of the problem" while calling the response to the case "at best, disorganized."



"It is, at best, disorganized out there and we have some members of the press that are creating a bit more of that," he said. "We need everybody to be professional."

He spake today.

“I completely stand behind the integrity and work of our supervision staff,” he said after a speech today in New York. “They are operating completely in the public interest.”

Dudley said there has been a “significant reorganization” following a report commissioned by the regional Fed bank, and that “improving supervision has been and remains an ongoing priority for me.”

“I don’t think anyone should question our motives and what we are trying to accomplish,” Dudley said today in defense of his institution. “Examiner independence is completely paramount.”

Prior to joining the Bank in 2007, Mr. Dudley was a partner and managing director at Goldman, Sachs & Company and was the firm's chief U.S. economist for a decade.

European equities fell sharply, temporarily hurting US equities and slightly denting the US dollar. ECB President Draghi disappointed the market by neither moving any closer to broad-based asset purchases nor detailing the size of asset-backed bond purchases. The Eurostoxx 50 closed down 2.8%, while the S&P500 later recovered to be down only 0.2% as we write.

nh, we closed the quarter at a high, so you expect some backing up. only once in 30 years we didnt get that. as for the pullback, for me the first level is the 76.4 10790 which was almost done today. if we do a new high then its likely thats all we'll see this quarter . but until we do a new high, the risk will be for a retest of 76.4/further retracement. they come off 37 but buying are in again. lets see the second reaction at 37, with 200 ma on minute chart capping so far as well.

Yes that was last week's low but (far as I'm aware) an outside week down requires a higher high (we got that) and a lower low with a close on the low. So we would need a close at least below 108.24 - preferably at the low which is so far 108.02

i have last weeks low at 108.25. we should in theory touch the 76.4 (almost did) and then it tries to rally (the begins we are seeing now). i think it then fails between 110 and 109.50 then hits the 76.4 where it either double bottoms or breaks and we look to the 38.2% level.

Paris ib 17:15 GMT October 2, 2014

Outside week down in USD/JPY would require a close of 108 or lower - today's low so far and the low so far for the week. If we get a bounce in equities (possible / likely) then that might be a big ask. We'll see. Certainly this week's action so far has given the USD bulls a good kicking.

i saw that note yesterday. and you know what. up to this morning the first two trading days of this q were the same as q1 this year, at least in terms of direction/shape of trading chart. we would need to rally back to 109 by the close to be identical, which isnt going to happen today.
of course they are right you have to have some retracement. even the yen. they warn the q1 retracement ended up at 50%. i think that would put us at 105.50/106.
but one step at a time. 76.4 is still holding 107.90 38.2 is 106.55

Citi was out with a note yesterday warning about a deeper fall in USD/JPY on a close below 109.19 and now they’re talking about a much more dramatic decline.

They say a weekly close below 108.26 this week would result in a bearish outside week. They say the pattern last happened in May 2013 and resulted in USD/JPY falling 10 full cents in the following four weeks.

They say something similar could happen, including a test of 100.00

my experience of these situations heading in nfp in the mood we are, suggests you sell the dollar rally on a good nfp and that yen and euro will beat todays highs at least intraday tomorrow. fwiw yen might see 109.50 and fall back to 108 given optimal conditions.
we are in dollar pullback mode. for now thats all it is. not a structural fall, just a retracement. below 105/106 yen and 130+ euro then it get to be more significant. but theres no reason to look for that just yet.

Equity markets are ending Thursday in a clear RISK-OFF posture as stock prices have fallen. There is talk that the ECB meeting today may have seen President Draghi encounter strong opposition to additional QE  The EURUSD is off its highs of the day.

  • Yields in prime Eurozone fixed income markets are mixed to higher after yesterday's sharp declines. The 10-yr bund is 0.907%,  +0.7% bp. Peripheral bond yields are mixed to higher.
  • The U.K.10-yr gilt yield is 2.343% -2.5 bp. BOE Gov Carney has continued to signal a Spring 2015 rate hike.
  • U.S.10-yr yield is 2.395%, +0.8bp.The Psychological focus remains on 2.50%.
  • Far East equities were mixed. China was closed for a holiday. Bourses in Europe are ending lower. U.S. shares futures are lower..

The ECB left interest rates unchanged, as expected, after last month's unexpected rate cuts. ECB President Draghi provided some more details regarding the asset purchase plan, but failed to put a hard total amount on how much would be purchased. Draghi merely said that the bank's balance sheet would grow back to 2012 levels, which would be about €3.0T compared to near €2.0T today.

The Dallas patient had initially sought treatment at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital late last Thursday and was sent home with antibiotics rather than being observed further, even though he told a nurse he had recently returned from West Africa. By Sunday, he needed an ambulance to return to the same hospital, where he was admitted.

A nurse asked about the travel as part of a triage checklist and was told about it. “Regretfully, that information was not fully communicated throughout the full teams. As a result, the full import of that information wasn’t factored into the full decision making,” Texas hospital official Mark Lester said.

European Central Bank is seeking tenders from financial firms to provide it with calculations on the likelihood of losses on asset-backed securities and covered bonds as it prepares to purchase the debt.

The central bank is also looking for data on market prices and assistance with modeling cash flows, according to a notice on the ECB’s website. The three contracts are slated to start in November and last four years, the document shows.

The ECB is preparing to buy a broad portfolio of ABS and covered bonds and will disclose details after policy makers meet today in Naples, southern Italy. By seeking expert advice, the central bank will get data that will enable it to decide which securities to buy and how to manage them, according to Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA analyst Aaron Baker.

“With these three contracts the ECB will gain information that can help inform the scope of its purchase program,” said London-based Baker, who analyzes the covered bond and ABS markets. “Requesting the ability to structure hypothetical cash flows suggests it could be looking at purchasing retained deals, while the information could also be useful as it seeks support from governments for guaranteeing certain ABS.”

while manufacturing is still a big employer, its contribution to gdp is small. pay and benefits in the uk are too high to change that, so manufacturing remains uncompetitive. and while europe is creating almost no external demand for the uk, manufacturing is set to underperform.
the uk is all about services (in particular finance) and property. in a timezone sweetspot, it will remain central as a hub for world finance.
i cant see that changing john. anyway the uk is all about two tiers. the north and south divide. outside england you have scotland/england and wales. and of course the biggest divide, london and the rest.

Markets have appear to remain in a RISK-OFF posture. I see prime bond yields are higher today, perhaps because they overshot yesterday on the downside as equities sold-off  I will be watching U.S. shares again closely today. The ECB could also impact trade today. The EURUSD has been trading higher.

  • Yields in prime Eurozone fixed income markets are mixed to higher after yesterday's sharp declines. The 10-yr bund is 0.911%,  +1.1% bp. Peripheral bond yields are mostly up.
  • The U.K.10-yr gilt yield is 2.362% -0.6 bp. BOE Gov Carney has continued to signal a Spring 2015 rate hike.
  • U.S.10-yr yield is 2.399%, +1.2bp.The Psychological focus remains on 2.50%.
  • Far East equities were mixed. China was closed for a holiday. Bourses in Europe are lower. U.S. shares futures are lower..

    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).

"Any country, large or small, if it does not take effective action as required, I will follow the necessary procedures," the former French finance minister assured. Earlier this week it was made known that France will be unable to reach the EU
Moscovici suggested that France needed more time to fix its economy and that the lack of growth prevents it from cutting deficit effectively.

On Wednesday current French finance minister Michel Sapin revealed that the country's deficit was expected to drop below the 3% threshold set by the EU only in 2017. Earlier France pledged to meet the objective in 2015.

Intra-Day Market Moving New and Views

02 Oct 2014

GBP/USD - ...... Cable swung wildly in Wednesday's session as despite falling to a fresh 2-week low of 1.6161 after release of downbeat U.K. mfg PMI in European morning, short-covering together with broad-based selling in greenback after downbeat U.S. data lifted price to 1.6252 in NY before retreating to 1.6173 on renewed cross-selling in sterling.
Later, price edged higher after NY closing and recovered to 1.6199 in Aust. and 1.6206 in Asian morning.

The overnight rebound after holding above yesterday's low of 1.6161 suggests range trading is likely until European open, however, investors should pay attention to the release of U.K. Markit construction PMI at 08:30GMT.
In addition, investors should also closely watch the intra-day move of eur/gbp cross as yesterday's recovery after failing to penetrate Tuesday's 2-year low at 0.8766 may triggered broad-based short covering and pressure price here later in the day.

Bids are noted at 1.6185/80 and around 1.6170 with mixture of bids and stops at 1.6150/45 and further out at 1.6130.
On the upside, offers are placed at 1.6220-30 and then 1.6240/45 with stops emerging just above 1.6260.

Data to be released on Thursday:

China market holiday, Australia new home sales, exports, imports, trade balance, UK construction PMI, EU producer prices, ECB rate decision, U.S. jobless claims, ISM New-York index, durable goods and factory orders.
