ANZ - "Foreign direct investment is still a fundamental underpinning to the AUD. This has been related to large-scale LNG projects but is increasingly being seen in real estate as well. This is related to higher yields on Australian residential and commercial properties relative to those in the rest of the developed world. The exchange rate remains subject to reserve diversification out of the euro, yen and US dollar. Japan’s efforts to reflate its economy will heighten the urgency of this…Continue

Westpac - "In the wake of today's weaker than expected US payrolls we have exited our EUR/USD short position at 1.2997. We opened the position on 8 March and added to it on strength for an average entry level of 1.3020. Stronger US data into early March was the main catalyst for the trade. Recent weaker US data is thus reason enough to scratch the trade.
Much has been made of supposedly biased US seasonal adjustment factors that have boosted jobs at the turn of the year in recent years…

Societé Generale - "This morning, the argument with a manager was that one may be a USD bull, but that we are headed currently for a period of weaker data (exclude this NFP print), leading to some USD underperformance. This suggests a period of consolidation and the usual fun with squeezing over-extended positions. The only risk is that the EM/USD trades turn from a…Continue

HSBC - "The JPY is likely to remain on the defensive for now. In the run-up to the meeting, the market had become wary that the BoJ would under-deliver and USD-JPY had weakened from close to 97 in March to 93. The knee-jerk reaction following the BoJ announcement has reversed much of this move, and it is likely that USD-JPY will continue to trade above 95 in the coming weeks. After all, the proposed pace of QE by the BoJ is roughly USD70bn a month, not far shy of the Fed’s USD85bn QE3…Continue

Finally the downside which lasted for two months is over, we are back again above the MA200. Mr.Draghi fueled the EUR rocket and now it's flying up with full speed, first restistance to break is 1.2950 then 1.3000 and 1.3030, finally 1.3080. We have support at 1.2910 and 1.2880 where is MA200, now serving as a good support. So my advice is buy above 1.2880 in the area 1.2880-1.2910 with target above 1.3000. Today some important data from Germany and in the beginning of the american session…Continue
