our PM here pointing out the risks of a terror attack here at some point this morning on radio.

"Prime Minister Tony Abbott concedes the Australian War Memorial could be a target for terrorists wanting to attack a symbol of the nation's identity.

Mr Abbott said there was a "copy cat tendency" among people who thought they were called by God to kill.

"It's difficult to be constantly on top of this," he said.

"We must be constantly vigilant because it only takes a very small number of fanatical extremists that are reckless as to their own life and prepared to kill without mercy or pity to cause mayhem."


As far as Asia goes - not trading any automated strategies for today or monday .. the only thought I have is in $yen we will have some exporters come in and sell initially and once it finds a base probably rise again.

This Ebola rumor is a concern which is why I'd think people will wait for any early selling to end .. and look for that base to start buying from.

Once upon a time, those who made loans would profit only if the loan were paid back. If the borrower defaulted, the lender would suffer.

That idea must have seemed quaint in 2005, as the mortgage lending boom reached a peak on the back of mushrooming private securitizations of mortgages, which were intended to transfer the risk away from those who made the loans to investors with no real knowledge of what was going on.

Less well remembered is that there was a raft of real estate securitizations once before, in the 1920s. The securities were not as complicated, but they had the same goal — making it possible for lenders to profit without risking capital.

JP - sorry I missed your plague inquiry - yes // another reason to sell EUR - the spread of Ebola beyond previous outbreaks is a do-gooder problem in Europe - Trading vessels (and occupants) might be burned in prior centuries - this is no longer ACCEPTABLE -- the new improved Europe allows refugee immigrants so the spread should be quick

In the US we think the do-gooder volunteers should be allowed to spread the virus and the pres, always reluctant to offend, agrees - hence no travel ban or containment until (WAIT FOR IT) the pharma companies gear up (no cure but a daily pill)

Reuters reported moments ago, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said on Thursday the government will expedite plans to give more powers of detention and surveillance to security agencies in the wake of an attack on Parliament.

"They need to be much strengthened, and I assure you, Mr. Speaker, that work which is already under way will be expedited," he told the House of Commons, one day after a gunman launched an attack on Parliament and was shot dead.

On the other hand, instead of giving the government even more authoritarian power to do with civilian liberties as it sees fit and appropriate, perhaps the government's agencies could have simply done their work better under the existing laws and regulations, especially after the Sky News report that the Ottawa shooter, Canadian born Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, was already on a terror watch list:

The gunman who killed a soldier in Ottawa and stormed Canada's parliament had been put on a terror watch list, it has emerged.

He did what was required of him and got the U.K. out of the European Monetary System by front running the collapse of the pound. He has very deep links with colour revolutions in Eastern Europe.

I mean considering he's been holding it for over a year (I don't know how long but easily at least a year) and considering he has lost time value and the market has gone against him over that time then he must have ADDED hugely to that position. Otherwise by now he would have a piddling little put. Of course if he could get WWIII going or something similar he might be able to make money. Want world peace? Bankrupt Soros. :-)

bc - I absolutely agree. One of the problems in this shift is, I think, that everyone has worked out that being a sole reserve currency is not such a great idea so no-one wants the burden. Yet we are aways away from getting some sort of alternative basket reserve system worked out. Still the bilateral agreements which are taking place are early steps towards a multi lateral system which is likely to work out a great deal better for the world economy in general and even for the U.S. (provided that they drop their currently paranoid approach and embrace change). I've heard the SDRs touted as an alternative but I don't see that flying. It looks to me like this will take place slowly, a bit here and a bit there.... but an ad hoc approach is probably better in any case. I'm not a big fan of some big general plan.

bc - I agree but the U.S. seems completely paranoid about any attempt to develop outside the current international financial framework. Indeed I think there has been a concerted effort by some elements of the media to suggest that should the USD stop being the world reserve currency then disaster will ensue. Personally I think a move away from the USD as a reserve currency is already underway and is likely to continue and I really don't see an economic disaster coming as a result. That said the level of paranoia on the issue is spectacular. :-)

"Although it sounds trivial, a calendar issue likely exaggerated the drop in industrial production. When bank holidays fall on a Thursday in Europe, workers tend to take Friday off as well to have a long weekend. But official statistics still count the Friday as a full working day, which puts a damper on output. Over the past 30 years, Eurozone industrial production has contracted an average of nearly 2 percent in May in years when May Day occurred on a Thursday."

I posted this on the 16th and it's still worth a read.

over the last 2 days in this period of roughly the next 3 hours from now

we traded 1.2790/1.2840 we started around 1.2810 and bought for about 2.5 hours

yesterday we traded 1.2685/1.2740 and we bought for about 2.5 hours and we started around 1.2723

so about 50 points basically ... interesting if we can do 50 3 days in a row.

Intra-Day Market Moving News and Views
23 Oct 2014 01:26GMT

USD/JPY - ...... Dlr pares Wed's gain in early Tokyo trading as intra-day retreat in the Nikkei (currently down 102 points at 15093 after yesterday's 2.5% rally) has led to intra-day renewed buying in yen.

Although the pair climbed in NY morning after U.S. CPI ticked higher and touched session high of 107.38, offers at Monday's 107.39 top checked intra-day gain and price edged lower near NY close.
Looks like range trading would continue in Asia, unless the Nikkei falls sharply, re-test of 107.28/39 is on the card.
Bids are noted at 107.00 and more below would stops below 106.80-75.
On the upside, offers are tipped at 107.45/50 with stops above there, however, more selling interest is reported at 107.80/00 area.

Thursday will see the release of New Zealand CPI, Japan manufacturing PMI, China HSBC manufacturing PMI, France business climate, manufacturing PMI, services PMI, Germany manufacturing PMI, services PMI, EU manufacturing PMI, services PMI, Italy trade balance, UK retail sales, CBI trends, U.S. home price index, jobless claims, manufacturing PMI, leading index and consumer confidence.

BREAKING NEWS

The EUR/USD closed below the 21 dma for the first time in a week - the next two days should see more weakness into the AQR weekend -- maybe the big drop in Greek yield has been last minute shoppers ?

EURUSD upside limited ahead of PMI reports.

1.2650 clearly sets bias (and currently resistance) while within 1.26-1.27. 1.2609-25 targeted while below it, then 1.2580

On top, 1.2680 blocks return to 1.27.
