"NZD & AUD: PICKING PEAKS
NZD and AUD outperformed other major currencies in Q1’14.
Momentum divergence on their gains into April suggests that their most recent uptrends are now mature with rising retracement risks.
Breaches of near-term support could trigger some relatively deep pullbacks and dictate directional bias for the current month.
Even if support holds, the maturity of the recent uptrends suggests that new highs are unlikely to be sustained and would be seen as…

"AUD IS PRIMED FOR A TURN
• Domestic growth surprises will be harder to
• Positive international dynamics are well
priced into the AUD
• Sell AUD/USD with an initial target of
USD0.90 and a stop at USD0.9340
The rally from USD0.86 has been aggressive, but it has priced in US data disappointment, a re-rating of growth in Australia, and some expectations of a policy response from China. A shift in the momentum
of any of these factors will drive a…

Rebounds off the ‘DEEP RETRACEMENT’ zone of 0.8550-0.8675 seem to be forming a correction, but one that is based upon a slide from 0.9760, rather than the 2012-2013 highs in the 1.06’s.
The current gyration between 0.8900-0.9150 is seen as an inner consolidation. Further slippage to 0.8900 may develop into…

In light of the fact that the market has sold AUD as a proxy for financial and economic risk in China, and may have been dragged further into these trades by recent weak news from China on both fronts, positioning is short and being squeezed by the slightest whiff of stability in China.
The weaker commodity prices are clearly a drag on income in Australia, exacerbated by a rising AUD that will hit profitability of miners and government revenue; the prospect of which…

"All tactical and mostly idiosyncratic
After a dismal start to the year, FX volumes appear to be reverting to seasonal
norms, possibly because a few EM themes (Crimea, China) are advancing
more consistently than rather pedestrian G10 ones (US data, Euro area
deflation, Abenomics unraveling). It is too soon in the year – and too
dismissive of the US business cycle – to assume that the dollar will remain

critical resistance at 1.4052. Any setbacks in the interim will be corrective
and limited to support at 1.3834 and then 1.3780.

"Trading Summary | While the air above is thinning, we hold to our long EUR/USD tactical view. GBP/USD has more upside and this may pressure EUR/GBP lower. European currencies remain favoured over Asia FX as investors chase risk adjusted carry returns in a vol crushed world. Stay with long GBP/JPY as the BoE falls further behind in the Race Not to Tighten First. USD/CAD to trade lower initially as spot catches up with rate spreads.…Continue

"Minors Attract Inflows
Flows: Reaching for yield
We were net buyers of AUD and NZD last week - the former due to a sudden improvement in domestic economic data, the latter on the likelihood of an imminent RBNZ rate hike. Buying pressure was also seen in sterling and the Nordics, while the Swiss franc suffered the worst of the outflows. In the EM space, the Singapore dollar came under the strongest selling pressure,…

"Inflows trickling back into AUD
Japanese investors are making a tentative return to Australian bonds markets. That’s the clear message from portfolio flow data released last week, which includes activity up to end-January. That’s quite a reversal of sentiment given Japanese investors spent most of the past 18 months as net AUD sellers. It seems FX valuations have now fallen back to somewhat attractive levels again – low enough to pique investor interest once more. These inflows have…
