The JPY is the worst performing G10 currency overnight, after yesterday’s outperformance. That retracement reflects the overall consolidative tone of markets this week as participants await further direction from the US political impasse. US developments will remain in focus, but if the week wears on without a resolution on the debt ceiling, risk aversion should become a clearer force and the JPY would be one of the biggest beneficiaries. It’s…Continue

A notably softer than expected German factory orders release went unnoticed in the spot FX market, leaving EUR/USD with the same consolidative tone that has persisted for the past two weeks. The focus on US developments is becoming progressively stronger for the pair as the debt ceiling deadline approaches in just 9 days now. That should leave the USD…Continue

Japan’s finance minister Taro Aso said that any US default would cause Japan to reconsider its US debt holdings. Chinese officials said similar yesterday. Along with the Fed, these are the two largest holders of US Treasury bonds.
There are unconfirmed reports for the office of Senate Majority Leader Reid that he will try to push for a vote on a clean CR today in the Senate. It is unclear whether Senate Republicans would try to stall any such bill via filibuster.

"The partial shutdown of the US government and the political impasse remains the most important factor for markets. Many are also recognizing that the longer the government is closed, the more likely that the Fed's exit strategy from QE3 is delayed. The recent string of non-government data, including the ADP jobs estimate, auto sales, and consumer confidence all softened from the…Continue

Markets did not go far in the last two sessions so our bias remains unchanged for the near-term. We see a nice upward reaction on USD Index from around 79.70 which is pointing for stronger USD if we consider a five wave rally and three wave retracement. That's an eight-wave cycle that signals for a move above 80.30 in this week while past week low is in place.

"The EUR may rise on evidence of modest recovery, potential for a drift up in money market rates, investors seeing light at the end of the tunnel for Eurozone banks and periphery debt, and a large current account surplus. Current levels of EUR/JPY provide a good entry level for long positions if you are prepared to bet on the US avoiding the worst case fiscal debt ceiling scenario."

"JPY better supported on risk aversion as Washington deadlock continues. Risk of short-covering remains
Japan PM Abe indicating that labour reforms may be delayed risks undermining perception of reform
progress (and weigh on Nikkei).
Seasonal factors have not had a lot of traction in the past few months but history suggests that October
remains the best month of the year for the JPY. A soft close for USD/JPY last Friday was a “heads up” that…

The closer the date when the Federal government runs out of funds to pay all of its debts, October 17th according to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, by the end of the month according to others, the less the credit markets seem to be concerned.
I exaggerate, but not by much.
On the morning of September 18th, the day of the last FOMC meeting, the yield on the generic 10-year Treasury opened at 2.84 percent and traded as high as 2.90 percent. After the announcement of the Fed…Continue
