    Hardy: Reasons why USD could move to the weak side

    John J Hardy
    Saxo's John Hardy says the US dollar has its back against the wall and needs to survive some key resistance levels. He also discusses both the Aussie and Kiwi's rally off the back of the People's Bank of China's decision to cut its reserve requirement ratio. And he looks at EUR strength despite the ongoing issues with Greece.

    John, not sure I follow your rationale for Eur v Greece. The funding trade using Eur and its association with risk on environment is fine, but it...

    Carry trade helps weaken Euro, risk off means people cover their euro shorts, so ironically (and probably only up to a point) if Greek disruptions lead to...

    Note that today's EURUSD sell-off, for example, coincided with a 200 point comeback from the DAX (though there is some reflexivity going on here as well, of...

    From the Floor: USDJPY probes break for run to 115

    Managing editor, TradingFloor.com / Saxo Bank
    Denmark
    USDJPY looks like it is shaping up for a test of 118.40 that could conceivably usher in a run all the way to 115 in a move that seems to sum up the relative weakness of the greenback. Weakness is the name if the game in China too after the PBoC's surprise 100 bps cut on the RRR.

    Australian Market Wrap: Stocks slump on China move
    It's been a soft start to the week, with the the ASXSP200 Index down 44.77 points or 0.76% to 5,833.1. At its peak it sank 70 points or 1.19%. Not even the surprise decision by the the People's Bank of China over the weekend to unleash a 1 percentage-point reduction to the Reserve Requirement Ratio could lift up the material index.

    Good traders protect their profits

    Managing Director / Technical Research Limited

    An inevitable part of the trading experience is understanding there are periods when profits accumulate relatively frequently but also times when losses outnumber winners. It is important for a trader not to squander (or too easily surrender) the gains from his winning trades but maintain his trading discipline. Trading is a long game; protect your trading profits and be as miserly as possible with your trading losses.

    KVP's Macro Take: China eases rates - so it's equities risk-on

    KVP's Macro Take: China eases rates - so it's equities risk-on
    We got a surprise big cut over the weekend with 100 basis points being taken off China's reserve requirement ratio. The death of the USD has been greatly exaggerated; we are still in a multi-year bull market. US equities are no longer a tide-raising-all-ships trade. Anyway I look at it, AUD is a short and the ASX is going higher.

    Today's Trade: Early falls, but China easing to prop up market

    Today's Trade: Early falls, but China easing to prop up market
    Shares dipped in early trade, and the S&P/ASX 200 was 1.07% lower at 10:56am. Beijing's easing of its reserve requirement rate will boost lending in China, and help prop up the Australian sharemarket. The Aussie dollar hit strong resistance just below 0.7850 and then dipped lower after the announcement of mixed CPI figures for the US.
