UBS - "Financial markets expect the Federal Reserve will continue purchasing $85bn a month of assets until its March 18-19 Open Market Committee meeting. Friday's employment report showed November payrolls growth again exceeded 200k. But the dollar lost ground against the euro, pound, Swiss franc and commodity currencies while the S&P rose 1.1% to 1805. Stronger growth prospects supported the Australian and New Zealand dollars. Expectations the Fed will still delay tapering pushed the…Continue

After touching new all-time highs in July 2013 (11,483,000), lead by the main site FXstreet.com (English) and the irresistible move up of the mobile sites, what has come next has been nothing but dull and our traffic figures down. Well, we saw some recovery in October, but nothing worthy to cheer about.
The only thing that I can be really happy about is the big fall in the bounce rate when comparing October (-16%) and November (-14%) when compared with same months…Continue

Rabobank - "EUR/USD: A weaker euro would be supportive for growth in peripheral Europe.
However, not all currencies can be simultaneously weak and the EUR is losing the battle. Insofar as the market remains obsessed with the timing of Fed tapering, threats of further policy action from the ECB are proving to have limited power over the direction of EUR/USD. Not only that, but the strength of Germany’s external sector and current account remains a source of strength for the EUR. The…

UBS - "This week we visited clients in the Middle East. Dollar diversification from the region continues to be limited in the wake of the Eurozone crisis and the Arab Spring. Investors tend to share our longer term bullish view on the greenback - so they are only likely to sell dollars more aggressively if the euro falls back towards 1.20-1.25 against the greenback.
Clients were also focused on Iran's interim agreement to curb nuclear activities in exchange for limited sanctions…Continue

Sometimes an image is more worth it than a thousand words....
This is a chart of the mortgage market in Spain. From 130k mortgages settled a month in 2006 to 12k in 2013.
This is the country I am living in... I have no words :(
Goldman Sachs - "We expect continued low and possibly falling FX volatility in the early part of 2014. Later in the year, evidence of improving growth could increase the market focus on the approaching end to ultra-low interest rates in some key economies. Volatility will likely pick up again and clearer directional FX opportunities materialise. The timing of these more directional moves is uncertain and it is quite possible that they will not materialise until 2015. Much will depend on the…Continue

UBS - "The November payrolls report due on December 6 is the key US release before the last Federal Open Market Committee meeting of the year on December 17-18. But in the week ahead the Eurozone's flash CPI estimate for November, Japan's monthly inflation data for October and Australia's quarterly capex report may also be pivotal releases. Both the yen and the Australian dollar are falling into year end. Expectations are rising that the Bank of Japan will undertake more easing in the next…Continue

Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi - "We expect further modest yen weakness in 2014 as the BoJ will continue to ease monetary policy aggressively, and may even step up the pace of planned monthly asset purchases. The implementation of the sales tax hike in April will provide a key test for investor confidence in Abenomics. If the slowdown in economic growth proves greater than expected, making the achievement of their 2.0% inflation goal less likely, it will increase pressure upon the BoJ to respond…Continue

UBS - "In the week ahead, most of the Fed's doves including Chairman Bernanke, New York Fed President Dudley, current FOMC voting members Evans, Rosengren and Bullard, and non-voting FOMC member Kocherlakota - are scheduled to speak. In addition, the October 29-30 FOMC meeting minutes will be released. Together, the upcoming communications will provide more insight into whether policymakers are willing to consider tapering as early as the December 17-18 FOMC meeting.
