For every action there is a reaction. China’s actions to avert the credit crunch impact now seem to be intersecting. Here are two actions, for example:

The massive injection of credit by the government and boom in shadow financing (not much different in every industrial country; just that China was already bumping up against excess capacity as this new credit was spread through its economy)
Initiation of real reform that should ultimately lead to higher quality growth and more competitiveness (in value-added products) for the economy in the years ahead

The Fed just announced the ideas from their latest FOMC meeting! It's sounding quite hawkish. Needless to say this is going to have some serious bearing on the price of currencies. My positions are doing well in the wake of the announcement. You can come aboard with my forex trading newsletter now and be sure to receive my trading alerts and recommendations as the market reacts to the Fed over coming days.

Copper & Aussie: A nasty statistic from China
Similarly, the Chinese cannot be blamed for being suspicious that the United States and the West might be choosing inflation as a means of defaulting on debt, especially given that U.S. policymakers seem committed to avoiding any risk of deflation— which implies taking all the risk with inflation. And they wonder, what if the inflation rate the industrial- ized world needs to resolve its debt kills or severely damages emerging markets along the way? China cannot be blamed for fearing the normal conse- quences of inflation: higher prices. Nor can they be blamed for being paranoid. By one measure, China is being defaulted upon, encircled, and threatened on multiple levels. One cannot really be surprised that China may respond to their rising duress using what-ever means necessary.”

dc CB 17:46 GMT April 25, 2014

the script that oil has followed during the Ukraine deal, has been, even if there was a large build in the EIA report on Wed, the tensions would lead to buyng into the weekend. Today that didn't happen, though I think the 100 level floor is the result of the Ukraine.

The wild card that could be played by the O, is to annc a release more from the Strat Oil Reserve to knock down the price in an attempt to would Putin. There is plenty of oil, almost a glut, in the stored in the gulf region (Gulf of Mexico) to refill easily.

The pit closes in 45mins after that the market will die and be easily moved up or down.

FR, more than welcome !

This recent example showed what can happen.... at one moment you get the 'go' tone, only to see it fall away again.

While this is / can be frustrating, my experience shows that predominantly, it usually gives an advantageous entry point.

The Easter weekend out weirded this arrangement, because tho I had been looking for a significant down-turn, the days where light trading took place, threw out the calculations.

Looks to me like oil is still very high. Wednesday Thursday sees a significant turn south IMO.

Still...... it gives a reasonable heads up.... most times !


FR 17:09 GMT April 25, 2014

Thanks Joe,

oil is making its further movement.....100.40---101...
but the main target is to break the 100 and remain below it.
then we are bearish....
but if it does not break 100 or does not remain below then the next target is very bullish....

Risk on (green) Risk off (red) Table

Late in European trade, you can see a lot of red (risk-off) in our Heat Map heading into the weekend. (Note again that we have changed the color scheme of interest rate to reflect yields, not bond prices. This realigns the the colors in the chart to reflect risk-on (green and risk- off (red)). The EURUSD remains now about steady on the day.

Prices in prime fixed income markets are higher and equities have turned broadly lower. The prices for the peripheral bond markets are mixed. European equities are closing weaker. Far East equity markets ended mixed earlier. U.S. equities are down. The U.S. 10-yr was last 2.65%%, -4 bp.

EURUSD has had a whopping 20 pip range today but feels like more given the chop.

No obvious place to hide in FX although JPY and CHF stand to benefit as this is where there are carry trade positions

USDJPY 102.50 capped upside overnight but so far finding support below 102. As noted, 102 will set its tone going forwards. Currently below 20/50/100 day mvas. 100.93 = 200 day mva.

Whether they realize it or not, JPY bears (USDJPY bulls) have been betting on a higher Nikkei and S&P. Problem is I don't know how much upside the equity markets still have in them?

Markets need to be led and this is why JPY bears are frustrated by the BoJ not hinting of more QE and EUR bears hoping for a currency signal from the ECB in the form of a rate cut to negative or QE.

Flip- There are times when I agree with these observations, but somehow I feel that the markets only need a reason (pretext?) to break out of these chains. I don't feel the algos do any thinking, that is why the current state of affairs can't last.

I'm curious how they would deal with the volatility that some of us have seen in the not too distant past?

GVI Forex Jay Meisler 13:18 GMT April 25, 2014
Share Your Trading Ideas for Today

Flip, for intra-day trading, market seems only to move on news or anticipation of news events and then settles back into ranges after stops get run (or if stops aren't run).

Currently, EURUSD is just +70 pips y-t-d after nearly 4 months of trading while USD is down against most currencies except CAD and that is off its high.

This is in a year where forecasts were (and for the most part still are) calling for a higher USD based on the economy outperforming its peers.

Ukraine becomes an issue for Europe if Russia cuts off gas exports but that is something both sides want to avoid.

John I don't think there are many actual people with opinions who move volume in the market these days. Between algos, HFT and ACBs "managing" squillions in their country's interests the news and fundamentals appear less important by the day.
E.g Europe has drifted into deflation with no growth and massive unemployment but I can't remember us actually trading off any of it on any reinforcing continually imploding data release.

If the markets felt there were a a serious risk of a major event in Ukraine over the weekend, they would be selling EURUSD. As of this hour, the EURUSD is up very modestly.

The moves in stocks and bonds look to me more like position squaring than pro-active trading into the new week. Does this position-squaring present a trading opportunity?

Here we are: "same old same old"

The DAX is getting slammed again today heading into the weekend presumably due to caution over Ukraine.

Note below our revised blue table is showing a lot of red due to risk off. (Lower equities and falling bond yields).

Lower S&P futures are a weight of USDJPY because of the correlation trade. Nikkei futures are lower now (-75) after the cash market closed higher. DJ futures are down 58.

EURUSD and Gold do not correlate well with risk-on or risk-off in my view.

Key support is not until 101.30 with support scattered at 101.40-85.

With that said key is to hold 102 as that will set the tone for this pair that confounds a market still hoping for 110.

USD/CHF Trend and Signal For Today
USD/CHF is trading with a neutral character. On the daily chart we can see a long downward trend of gradually increasing interest prevails. As previously predicted, the bulls have formed another correction, sliding the bears up to the level of 0.8861, where the price groped resistance and restore the original motion. Now, after a series of impulsive movements, bears reduced fervor, forming double-digit market battle. Development of the plot for the next trading days may be so- it's possible we'll see the ambiguity before passing mark 0.8800, where the market from time to time will join the bulls. If the price still be able to cross this mark with a growing interest in short positions , then we can assume further downward movement until preformed minimum 0.8698. Key resistance levels Zone is at 0.8900, 0.9000 and 0.9130 while support level are at 0.8800, 0.8700 and 0.8567 downside.

Trading Signals - Buy USD/CHF of recommended at a price above 0.8835 with the prospect of progress to the level of 0.8900.
Sale pair is recommended for less than 0.8800 with the prospect of running around to 0.8700.

March 2014 UK Retail Sales

In March 2014, the quantity bought in the retail industry increased by 4.2% compared with March 2013 and by 0.1% compared with February 2014. The quantity bought also increased in Q1 2014 compared with Q1 2013, by 3.8%. This continues a pattern of year-on-year growth since early 2013.

Non-food stores saw the highest year-on-year increase (9.6%) since April 2002. This may partly reflect the negative effect of the very cold weather a year earlier, which was the second coldest March on record, in contrast to the warm weather in March 2014. Food stores, however, saw the largest year-on-year decrease (2.3%) since April 2013 (2.9%).

In March 2014, the amount spent in the retail industry increased by 3.9% compared with March 2013 and by 0.3% compared with February 2014. Non-seasonally adjusted data show that the average weekly spend in the retail industry in March 2014 was £6.7 billion compared with £6.6 billion in March 2013 and £6.5 billion in February 2014.

Average prices of goods sold in March 2014 showed deflation of 0.5%; fuel once again provided the greatest contribution, falling by 5.8%. These data are consistent with the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) which was published on 15 April 2014.

The amount spent online increased by 7.1% in March 2014 compared with March 2013 and by 1.4% compared with February 2014.

Retail sales figures for March provide today’s domestic highlight. Headline volumes (ex-auto) for February surprised on the upside with a 1.8% m/m jump and recent BRC data for annual sales points to some retracement this month. This year’s late Easter is also likely to weigh on sales, although the magnitude of any adjustment made by National Statistics is difficult to judge. Our UK team expect sales to fall by 0.6% against a -0.5% consensus view.

25 Apr 2014 04:53GMT

Dlr's retreat from Wed's 7-week high of 11665 to
11565 today confirms recent up move from 11255 (Mar)
has made a temp. top and consolidation is seen before up.
Still favour buying again on dips for 11620 first
and only below 11525 risks stronger retrace to 11460.

STRATEGY : Buy at 11550


STOP-LOSS : 11510

RES : 11625/11665/11690

SUP : 11565/11525/11465

AceTrader April 25: Daily Market Outlook on USD/JPY

Update Time: 25 Apr 2014 01:44 GMT

Despite yesterday's retreat to 102.09, subsequent rebound in Asian morning suggests dollar's choppy consolidation below Wednesday's high at 102.73 is likely to continue with neutral bias. A breach of 102.73 would confirm erratic up move from April's low at 101.32 has once again resumed and extend gain to 103.06, however, loss of momentum should cap price at 103.39/40 today.

On the downside, a breach of 101.86 would indicate the recovery from 101.32 is over instead and weakness to 101.50 and 101.32 would follow.

You will probably need to see nukes' rockets starting to rev up or serious cyber-warfare in action (critical infrastructure like powergrids, utilities or banking transaction failures) to see market reacting. Otherwise Ukraine is like a joke heard one time too many - nobody is wasting their money on a ticket to hear it.

Start looking for a new market moving catalyst.

By the way, there was a time when news like Ukraine would have sent USDJPY and EURJPY down sharply but this has so far not been the case.
