    From the Floor: EUR suffers, MXN buoyant, commodities on edge

    The European trading session opens today with the euro bashed lower by fresh fears that the proposed Grand Coalition in Germany won't happen; the Mexican peso ahead on hope of a "softer" Trump approach to NAFTA; buoyant equity performance in Asia and an emerging likelihood that the commodity metals and energy rally will run out of steam.

    The US stock market rallied to a new high ahead of the long weekend (see chart below)

    This last piece of bullish sentiment seems confined to the US; few other markets joined in this week.

    The US dollar index broke thru key chart support (see chart) as the dollar weakened across the board.

    The bond market was initially impressed with the CPI inflation update but soon gave up gains.

    The core rate rose a touch to 1.8% rounded (actually 1.78%, up from 1.71% previously – so nothing to get excited about)

    Core inflation has been stuck in to 1.7-1.8 percent range for 8 months (see chart)

    NZDUSD and AUDUSD upside threats

    A weakening of the US Dollar has been evident since the December 2017 rate hike, with a notable setback for the greenback through the late 2017 holiday season.
    For the AUDUSD the surge up through .773 in latter 2017 has indicated a more bullish intermediate-term outlook for at least January 2018.
    The NZDUSD forex rate rally from December was reinforced by the push through .6980, which leaves an upside bias for at least early Q1 2018.

    Another day, another record high in the US stock market.

    As the chart below shows, we could be seeing a repeat of the mid-1990’s pattern, best illustrated in a monthly log chart.

    That run was briefly interrupted by Fed Chair Alan Greenspan observing that investors seemed to caught up in “irrational exuberance”.

    Perhaps new Fed Chair Powell will comment on his own views when he takes over from Janet Yellen shortly.........

    While all news is good news for the stock market, USD and bonds could see little to get excited about in the employment data, changing little on the day.

    EURUSD was initially impacted by a poor inflation number but came back after the US jobs data were released a few hours later.

    Behind the scenes commodity price indexes are having a good run of their own as contrarian traders notice the wide valuation gap (see chart)

    Alan Greenspan was seen as guru at the time he made that famous/notorious statement. No one around today has the sort of gravitas that can move markets...........

    EURUSD and GBPUSD positive within range environments

    The US Dollar has NOT produced a more positive tone in December, despite the anticipated progression of tax reform legislation, which has generally lead to other asset classes signalling a “risk on” environment (Equities higher, Bond markets lower).

    This has allowed the Major global currencies to stage mid-December rallies against the US$ Dollar.

    For EURUSD, we see an intermediate-term range environment, between 1.1961 and 1.1712, but with the skewed bias shifting to the upside into latter December.

    GBPUSD is also in both wide and narrow ranges (the wider range between 1.3026 and 1,3658), but again with a slight upside bias into the holiday season and year-end

    Triangle Correction on EURUSD Points Higher by Gregor Horvat

    On the daily chart of EURUSD, we can see that the trend is overall bullish and is unfolding a nice five-wave pattern within higher degree wave C) of IV. Wave C can be an impulse, which means it can unfold five, clear waves, which is currently the case. The other possibility would be that wave C) would unfold as an ending diagonal in which case an overlap would be seen between waves 1 and 4.
