    Australia is not, nor will be, Atlantis
    Australia is not about to sink into the ocean, despite warnings of a new Atlantis following a batch of weak inflation data and the central bank's rate cut last week. The Aussie dollar has come under selling pressure, AUDUSD made a run at its 200-day moving average ovenight, and the pressure remains to the downside.

    Also worthy of mention is Gold where we saw weakness to 1240, so held that 1236 level I've cited, and has since rallied to 1261.9.

    Morning Markets: Apple disappointment reverberates across Asia
    Japan's Nikkei index was hit by ripple effects from disappointing second-quarter results from US technology giant Apple, where iPhone sales dropped and topline and earnings figures missed analysts' expectations. Apple's poor results, reported after the US market closed on Tuesday, knocked shares in Japanese supplier companies on Wednesday. Shockingly weak CPI data from Australia hit the Aussie dollar.

    What Aztec gold and llamas can teach us

    What Aztec gold and llamas can teach us
    The Incas and Aztecs knew about gold, and they used strong beasts of burden, such as the llama and alpaca, to transport the precious metal and so created the first gold exchange and transport index. Both ancient cultures mastered the skill of garnering intrinsic value and developed a means of universal exchange, which is basically the definition of a currency. So what does this history lesson teach us about how to trade FX or indices? Read on.

    Li's index beats official China data for reliability

    Nikkei Asian Review
    Suspicion persists that Chinese officials manipulate data to generate a lofty growth rate divorced from reality. Even Premier Li Keqiang is said to have called the official data “manmade” years ago as a regional Party chief, citing railway cargo volume, electricity consumption and bank lending as better indicators. Those three indicators now make up the so-called Li Keqiang index, which the Japan Centre for Economic Research uses to compute its own estimate of China's growth. The centre sees real GDP growth at 5% for the quarter ended June, significantly short of Beijing's official 7%. The National Bureau of Statistics has been busy trying to dispel doubts about official data.
