Will you be able to "get out", or will the markets just shut down
Yesterday we also saw NYSE Euronext 'break' into the European melt-up close, and later that day, as Ebola headlines hit, the market once again broke numerous times with various exchanges declaring self-help against one another as stocks tumbled on heavy volume. If you are wondering how it is that "the great stock markets in the world" can break so often (and be so ignored by financial media), Nanex exposes the act... as massive quote spamming yesterday sent OPRA to full capacity (broke the efficient flow of data in markets) 13 times...

As Nanex's Eric Hunsader explains each peak over 10 milloin quotes per second - ocurring after a sale of 1025 S&P 500 e-mini contracts - temporarily maxed capacity at OPRA and broke markets... (and a 15 point insta-plunge occurred)

Why one economist says no recession until at least 2016

“The reality is that bear markets do not just pop out of the air,” he said. “They are caused by tight money, recessions, or both. These conditions do not apply, nor will they until 2016 at the earliest.”

Last month, when, with great amusement, we reported that "New Home Sales Explode Higher Thanks To... Record High Average New Home Prices?", we mocked the latest batch of censored data released by the US department of truth as follows:

New Home Sales rose a magnificent (seasonally-adjusted annualized rate) 18% in August - the biggest monthly rise since January 1992 albeit with a 16.3 90% confidence interval, meaning the final number may well be +1.7%. At 504k, new home sales are back at May 2008 levels (though obviously massively below the 1.4 million homes sold at the peak in 2005). As a reminder, May's 504K new home sales print was later revised later to 458K. But even more stunning, new home sales in The West rose a mind-numbing 50% in August (and up 84.4% YoY - nearly double).

Well, it is now a month later, and here come the revisions: first, that 50% surge in the West was revised... 30K lower. But to get a sense of just how bad the revision was, here is the old, pre-revision data, and the "data" following the latest revision.

As Paul Craig Roberts put it:

My Ph.D. dissertation chairman, who became a high Pentagon official assigned to wind down the Vietnam war, in answer to my question about how Washington gets Europeans to always do what Washington wants replied: “Money, we give them money.” “Foreign aid?” I asked. “No, we give the European political leaders bagfuls of money. They are for sale, We bought them. They report to us.”

So when Europeans or Japanese make decisions which are clearly not in their interests the explanation is relatively simple. It remains to be seen if the U.S. has bought enough politicians to push a European QE through. They managed with Japan. We shall see.

FXStreet (Mumbai) - WTI Crude Oil declined today as markets gained more clarity over Saudi’s Crude policy.

WTI Crude is trading 2% down at USD 80.44/barrels, down from a high of USD 82.37/barrel. Moreover, Saudi Arabia ‘s crude oil production increased in September, even though the supply was reduced. The sell-off in crude prices indicates that markets are more interested in seeing an actual cut in the crude oil production.

Crude prices also came under pressure after a first case of Ebola was confirmed in the US, which sparked fresh concerns over the spread of the virus. Moreover, Risk assets across the globe came under pressure today due to the Ebola concerns.

WTI Crude Technical levels

WTI crude has an immediate support of 80.05, below which prices can fall to 79.38 levels. Meanwhile, prices may rise to 82.36 levels if the immediate resistance of 81.17 is breached.

As I look at the markets, economy etc., as a comprehensive picture, I don't see any pressing need for the Fed to do much next week. We know that the Asset Purchase Program has outlived its useful life and the central Bank would love to be done with this program for fear of the future damage it may do. I expect it to be trimmed again or eliminated, but for the doves to keep interest rate policy on hold.

I don't expect this meeting to have a major impact on the USD, but we will be keeping a constant watch into the meeting.

JP - whatever that means. The Americans printed. It didn't work. So far the market has mostly ignored how badly it didn't work. However, when you add in all the tragic geopolitical mistakes the Americans have made, to compound the problem, then we are likely to see fairly soon just how badly it hasn't worked. And no, despite all the encouragement from these right wing think tanks and publications, the ECB is not about to embark on QE to save the USD. Even if half Europe's politicians and bankers are on the U.S. payroll. And yes Germany does count. And from where I'm standing: thank god for that.

Paris ib 13:55 GMT October 24, 2014

Europe - or rather the Euro Area - is currently running a current account surplus equivalent to 2.5% of annual GDP. The capital available in Europe is plenty. But if you think 'the end is nigh' and the Euro area is going to break up and so and so forth then may I suggest taking a short position on the Euro, which is currently trading at 1.2685. I have no problem taking the other side of that trade.

Mtl JP 13:53 GMT October 24, 2014

don't forget that Europeans have relatively recent experience with restructuring public and private debt: default thru hyper-printing (in Germany) and finally money exchange a la Française. It is a formula that has worked with all its pains (to most) and pleasures (to some).

All the spooky headlines based on nothing much (ECB to buy corporate bonds, then there was another 'scare' story I can't even remember now)...... all the boo stuff is starting to undermine their credibility. Meanwhile lurking in the shadows another story waits to break....

"unless it can continue rolling over trillions of dollars in short-term debt every month at record-low interest rates, it won't be able to pay the interest on its debt or its bills....... causing a financial stampede to the exits just requires somebody to yell “Boo!” loudly and frighteningly enough."

The first thing that jumps out at me is that the USDJPY LOD is 107.86 and the pivot point is 107.88. A pivot point can be a break-out level, a determinator of market tone or support/resistance. At the moment it is support, and the USD tone above 107.88 should be positive and below it should turn negative.

GBP/USD - ...... Cable fell yesterday to a near 1-week low after U.K. retail sales showed continued slowdown consumer spending & industrial orders, damping expectation on timing of the BoE's rate hike in 2015.

Britain's brisk economic recovery is showing more signs of cooling after shoppers bought less, exporters took a hit fm Europe's slump and banks approved the fewest mortgages in more than a year.
Data released on Thursday underscored why the BoE is signalling that it is in no rush to raise interest rates, even as U.K.'s economic growth continues to outpace that of most other industrialised nations.

Earlier, BoE deputy governor Ben Broadbent had said that any future rise in interest rates was likely to be gradual, and that underlying interest rates - which dictate investment returns n BoE policy - would stay low for some time.
In a third set of figures, factory export orders in the 3 months to Oct fell to their lowest level since the start of last year as Europe's slowdown took its toll on British manufacturers.

Today's prelim. Q3 GDP data are expected to show growth cooled in the 3 months to Sep to a quarterly 0.7% fm 0.9% in the Apr-Jun period. A further slowdown is possible in the final 3 months of the year.
The recovery in Britain's economy has pushed the unemployment rate down to 6%. But pay is still lagging behind inflation, a reflection in part of how many people have found work in low-paying industries.

A survey published on Thursday showed the biggest fall in 4 years in one measure of consumer confidence as many of those workers feared they could lose their jobs as the economy cools off.

just coming into this 3 hour period in EUR - where we have been trading 50 pips a day .. I am slightly biased to the upside

so I will go with 40-90 .. but am aware it could well stay 25-75 with maybe some late sellers into that weekend stuff... blocking much past 75.

thoughts/comments ?

I know the AUD got whacked early on -- but it should stay offered - as well as Gold .. as when you get these type of factors there is no place to really hide .. despite the $yen softer tone here in Asia.

imo ... EUR + GBP should benefit more .. maybe we see that in early London.

AceTrader Oct 24: Intra-Day News and Views (USD/JPY) & data to be released today
Intra-Day Market Moving News and Views

24 Oct 2014 01:49GMT

USD/JPY - ..... Just when the market gave a green light to buy the dlr/sell the yen on Thursday after yesterday's upbeat data in the euro zone (PMIs) and the U.S. (falling jobless claims, rising leading indicators), news on the 1st diagnosed case of Ebola in New York knocked the wind off the USD, knocking the pair briefly to 107.87 in Tokyo as the news triggered a bout of yen buying on risk aversion.
Nikkei pared initial gain after the N225 futures rallied 300 points (Nikkei spot index is currently up 142 points at 15280) & S&P futures are trading in negative territory.

Unless the Nikkei heads higher again later in the day once current Ebola scare subsides, range trading with downside bias is seen.
For now, offers are tipped at 108.10/20 and more above with stops above yesterday's NY high at 108.36.
Initial bids are noted at 107.85-80 and more below with stops touted below 107.40-35.

Japan's FinMin Taro Aso talked about the importance to proceed with sales tax plan as scheduled to maintain trust in JGB market.
Aso continued to say that the MoF will continue to communicate with markets to make sure discount bills and JGBs are auctioned smoothly.

Last night the greenback maintained a firm undertone due to renewed risk aversion as Dow Jones index rallied by more than 225 points or 1.37% to 16654. Besides, U.S. 2-year treasuries note yield climbs near 0.4%, highest in more than a week.
Bids were located at 108.10-05 n more at 107.90-80.
On the upside, some offers were tipped at 108.40-45 with mixture of stops n offers is seen at 108.50.

Friday will see the release of New Zealand trade balance, imports, exports, China house prices, Germany consumer sentiment, Italy retail sales, UK GDP and U.S. new home sales.

2 things about that

* at the moment the market is still bullish in $yen - but your right Stocks later will be important... which I can't know just yet what they will do.

* this is how the Japanese traders will trade it - all bets are off when other markets enter of course... Tokyo will have bids just in front of 80 and 60 ... you will have to gauge the rebounds/price action... as to how solid they will be if something changes.

Much will depend on how far stocks slip on the Ebola news??

sd sf 01:34 GMT October 24, 2014

just as a guide in bullish $yen markets

normally you see 78 hold on the pullback -- if that breaks then it tends to run down to 58 before recovering back above 78.

so those are the 2 levels I'd be looking at.
