Lessons from the VIX by Mary McNamara

I posted a chart over the w/e showing how the VIX, the ‘fear’ index, had broken up through a weekly descending trend line. This was a clear warning to traders that some increasing volatility might lay ahead. A copy of this w/e chart is re-produced below.  VIX weekly: a bullish triangle breakout was noted: The bullish […]

NZDUSD: Kiwi stars as other risk assets are sold heavily. Yield back in fashion! by Jim Langlands

NZD/USD: 0.7984 The Kiwi has performed very well today, despite the general risk off move and currently sits at 0.7970, close to session highs of 0.7996.Sitting on the sidelines seems to be the best laid plan for the time being, although the momentum indicators are now suggesting that we could see some more gains ahead, […]

EUR/USD: Pick a wide trading range from here by Sean Lee

Somewhat of a train wreck overnight for EUR shorts across the board and the market was obviously overly positioned.

Markets remain very nervous: by Milan Cutkovic

The market is obviously very nervous at the moment and plenty of rumors are making the round, as traders and analysts try to explain what happened. The Retail Sales data was a miss, yes, but I think that this was a pure sentiment-driven move. The data alone nor the previous data releases don’t suggest that […]

Goldman Sachs Spot Desk Strategies: by Milan Cutkovic

EUR Consolidation continues and yesterday the Euro reversed gains as the dollar stabilised and we saw players reinitiate EURUSD shorts. I stick with the view that ultimately EURUSD will make new lows but it is difficult to predict how long this holding pattern will endure. In the meantime I am staying flexible, trading the range […]
