Australian employment figures brought a lift to markets overnight, as the much stronger figure surprised traders with a rise of 44,000 new jobs for the month. Consensus estimates were looking for a rise of 6,500 jobs and for an increase in the unemployment rate, but this figure also managed to hold steady at 5.2 percent.

Today I assume another bullish move testing the key resistance 1.3180/1.3210 zone, a clear break above this area would test 1.3250/1.3280 zone.
Immediate support is seen around the key…Continue
Euro dollar continues sliding lower after hitting high resistance yesterday. The relatively weak Chinese GDP weighs on the common currency, as global demand is essential for European growth. A busy day in the US closes the week, including QE3 related inflation figures and a speech by Ben Bernanke just before markets unwind. Will Bernanke hurt the dollar on Friday the 13th?

The U.S jobless claims rose and thus may have been among the factors to pull down the US dollar. Today, there are several reports to come out including: U.S CPI, Great Britain PPI and U.S TIC Long Term Purchases.…Continue

So far it’s been an exciting week as all 12-FED voting members spoke on different occasions and spoke their heart out about monetary policy. Though Fed Vice Chairman Janet Yellen had a dovish approach like Fed Chairman Ban Bernanke, but the remaining members were Hawkish in their approach.
Interestingly, my observation is that they all were talking on the same wave length supporting lose monetary policy. They are of view that reducing unemployment is…Continue

Gold and silver didn’t do much yesterday after they had rallied in the past couple of days. The slow market day has passed and today the situation should be different. The rally in oil and U.S stock markets didn’t coincide with the decline in metals during yesterday’s trading. Today, there are several important reports to come out including: U.S jobless claims weekly update, American Trade Balance and U.S PPI.…Continue

Euro dollar moved up slightly yesterday (April 11th), as the markets responded positively to a hint by the ECB that it may purchase more bonds to ease the financial crisis. However, investors remained concerned, with the focus now on Spain, which has declared it plans to implement new austerity measures, possibly in the next few weeks. There are numerous releases today in Europe and the US, but…Continue

Hello friends, Good day
Euro hesitate to break 1.3160/70 resistance (38% of 1.3380-1.3030 fall), with holding 1.3160/70 we should see 1.3100 break soon for 1.3030 retest asap and later (maybe tomorrow) 1.30 break for 1.2800 target in coming week.
My recommendation is to…Continue
European equity markets bounced from their lowest levels in 2 months, following the positive close in the US after Alcoa beat expectations for its quarterly earnings report. Treasury bonds in both Spain and Italy were seen higher on the session and the Euro posted gains against most of the major currencies. Both the Euro Stoxx 600 and the S&P 500 were higher by nearly 1 percent which is the first positive performance in 6 trading sessions.
European Central Bank (ECB) members…Continue
