    FX Update: USD stands its ground

    FX Update: USD stands its ground
    The USD selling was reversed rather sharply late yesterday – an interesting development considering the recent breaks of key support levels in some USD pairs following the dovish FOMC and weaker than expected US CPI.

    Morning Markets: Skittish euro, swaggering pound

    Morning Markets: Skittish euro, swaggering pound
    The week's major central bank events are now behind us and the major pairs are struggling to find direction in light of new data. With the USD weaker, EURUSD is trying to post gains but the Greek debacle and Monday's emergency Eurogroup meeting are weighing heavy on the common currency. Meanwhile, sterling is soaring.

    Product Manager, Options Trader, Educator
    Denmark
    A week ago, we sold the standard June 15 116.5/115 put spread for credit of $.32 per contract. As the contracts expire tomorrow, traders must close them before 1600 EDT. As of the close on June 18 the spread could be bought back for $0.10 per contract or $0.22 profit.

    Have a good weekend!

    China, Greece and the Fed in the mix as Asian shares edge higher

    Reuters
    Asian shares rose for a third consecutive day on Friday, and the dollar remained on the backfoot against the region's currencies as investors bet US interest rates will not as rise quickly as expected. "This removes a source of uncertainty for Asian markets in the near term and should be a positive factor going ahead, though the Greek factor will temper any optimism," said Stephen Chiu, a strategist at Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group in Hong Kong. A moderate recovery in the US economy in previous months had raised concerns the Federal Reserve would strike a hawkish stance at Wednesday's meeting, but its cautious tone sparked a sense of relief and prompted investors to snap up risky assets. A broad index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan gained 0.6% while Japan's Nikkei rose 0.9% from a one-month low set on Thursday. Major US share indices jumped about 1%, with the Nasdaq Composite finally erasing its last standing milestone from the dot-com era to set a record intraday high.

    Norway's jumbo wealth fund to battle Asia's ‘flash boys’

    Bloomberg
    Norway’s $890 billion fund, which considers high-frequency trading a scourge in global financial markets, is taking steps to avoid the practice as it spreads in Asia. The fund, which owns about 1.3% of the world’s equities, has already started to cut back on its use of algorithmic trading to dodge HFT traders that might be trying to pre-empt its moves in the US. HFT “is now gaining some momentum in Asia -- we’re definitely following it and we have to do a lot of work on the individual markets,” said Oeyvind Schanke, head of asset strategies at the fund. “The whole spectre of trading venues has been catering to high-frequency trading activity, whereas we would like it to focus more toward the institutional need.” Schanke has 10 people working in Oslo, the fund’s main office, and in hubs in New York, London and Singapore, looking for ways to cut transaction costs and retain profits when trading in large blocks. Now, he’s worried about markets such as Japan.
