    What’s wrong with Canadian banks?
    Moody's has downgraded Canada's 'Big Six' banks as fears over the country's overheated housing market and rising levels of private debt cloud the country's outlook. Is Canada preparing for its own version of the 2007-8 crisis?

    Look for US PMI this week: Van-Petersen

    Kay Van-Petersen
    This week Global Macro Strategist Kay Van-Petersen of Saxo Capital Markets will be listening to three hawkish Fed speakers and Janet Yellen.

    However, Van-Petersen believes the main events this week are Flash PMIs (of which some have already been published this morning), Eurozone GDP prints and not least the US Flash PMI.

    On the central bank side Kay Van-Petersen is particularly keeping an eye on Bank of Canada and the Turkish Central Bank.

    Daily Shot: Venezuela, Russia and Iran are on the brink
    As WTI futures approach $45 per barrel, the damage to producer nations is becoming increasingly pronounced. Venezuela’s debt is trading at deep distressed levels, as restructuring approaches. Conditions are worsening for Russia as well: inflation has spiked after the currency collapse and government bonds are under pressure again as capital flight continues.

    Strength of JPY anticipated last week played out nicely in the first part of the week, especially GBP/JPY shorts were hitting far targets on consistent basis. Coming week has lots of contradicting signals across the major currencies, therefore will be staying away for the most part. The only clear signals in my book for the week are in AUD/JPY and CAD/CHF pairs. In terms of events to shake the markets, BOC will have its rate announcement on Wednesday, worth watching CAD pairs going into this event.

    Some USD weakness by the end of last last week allowed EUR/USD short posted last week hit target 1 for about +90 pips today after Cypher pattern completion. Whether this move will be sustained remains to be seen, however the underlying for it is quite strong with rumors of QE by ECB moved towards more action based rhetoric last week, having Greek bonds back to the action last week sold off purely on this expectation.
