    Expats live the high life in Asia, right? Think again

    Nikkei Asian Review
    Professionals offered the chance to live and work in Asia should think long and hard before making the move. For instance, Singapore is the most expensive city to live in worldwide, according to an Economist Intelligence Unit survey. High costs for clothing and cars keep the city state on top of the list of expensive cities. Singapore and Seoul residents pay the most in the world for clothes. In fact, clothing prices in Singapore's Orchard Road malls are over 50% higher than in New York. Grocery prices are much higher in Seoul and Tokyo than in New York – they are 49% and 43% more expensive respectively. Suddenly the switch to Asia may not look that appealing after all.

    Today's Trade: GDP figures to set tone

    Trading Desk / Saxo Capital Markets
    Australia
    The retreat by US and European markets last night are likely to see a cautious tone enter our markets today. Unless today’s GDP comes out surprisingly strong, we may see some more weakness with the resistance level at 5,944. While the RBA continues to indicate easing bias we remain bearish on AUDUSD.

    FX Noon: Apparently the week in FX is all back loaded, so we wait...

    FX Noon: Apparently the week in FX is all back loaded, so we wait...
    German retail sales data was ever so healthy this morning, while the Reserve Bank of Australia sat on its hands overnight. Otherwise it’s been another one of those horribly quiet market days in the absence of any real news or flows to influence price action. This afternoon only sees us looking out for CADGDP as data of any real note and the risk here is for a softer print giving CAD bears further impetus to sell more of the Loonie.

    FX Update: USD bulls still waiting for traction

    FX Update: USD bulls still waiting for traction
    The RBA failed to cut overnight and AUDUSD squeezed back higher. Meanwhile, USDJPY couldn’t maintain the 120.00 level and EURUSD refuses to push lower after last week’s swoon. The USD needs to get something going or we risk another squeeze on bulls losing confidence.
