    Geography lessons and 'what ifs'
    New York traders walked in to a modestly risk-averse FX market and then proceeded to buy US dollars, a move supported by strong housing market data. Overnight the Australian dollar, New Zealand dollar and Canadian dollar sank in unison even though the CAD is not antipodean currency — hence today's geography lesson.

    Signs of oil rebound give Opec room to forgo a freeze

    Nikkei Asian Review
    Signs of an oil market recovery gave Opec room to forgo a freeze on output increases at its meeting on Thursday. But failure to agree on a quota policy indicates internal divisions that have yet to be bridged. The cartel's strategy has prioritized market share over keeping prices high. Though the price tumble resulting from this shift hurt the group, the plan looks to be paying off as shale oil producers and non-Opec nations trim output.

    Saudis take rearguard action to curb Iran's economic rise

    Saudi Arabia couldn’t stop the Iran nuclear deal from being signed. Plan B is to limit Iran’s ability to reap its benefits. The kingdom is mobilizing its Gulf allies to make sure that Iran’s opening-up doesn’t go smoothly. Last month the Saudis scuttled a bid to stabilize crude prices because it would have allowed their bitter foe to grab a larger share of oil markets. It’s a rearguard action by the Saudis as the US reassesses its role in the Middle East and investors are drawn to Iran as the last untapped major frontier market. Still, there are other drags on doing business with Iran: European banks are reluctant to do business in the Islamic Republic for fear of possible US sanctions.
