U.S. Consumer Prices Show Unexpected Drop In October

With energy prices showing a notable decrease, the Labor Department released a report on Wednesday showing an unexpected drop in consumer prices in the month of October.

The Labor Department said its consumer price index edged down by 0.1 percent in October after rising by 0.2 percent in September. The drop came as a surprise to economists, who had expected consumer prices to come in unchanged.

Meanwhile, core consumer prices, which exclude food and energy prices, inched up by 0.1 percent for the third straight month. Economists had expected core prices to rise by 0.2 percent.

Bigger than Libor? Forex probe hangs over banks


A global investigation into forex trading abuses is the latest legal headache for the banking industry.

The [forex and Libor] benchmarks have a knock-on effect to all of these other markets," Kovel said. Assistant professor of law at Wake Forest University Andrew Verstein agrees.

RBA not ruling out intervention on $A

The Australian dollar is higher than it should be and the Reserve Bank of Australia is keeping an open mind about intervening to bring it lower, governor Glenn Stevens says.

Although the RBA has expressed concern about the high Australian dollar, the benefits of intervention do not outweigh the costs at this point, Mr Stevens said in a speech marking the 30th anniversary of the floating of the Australian dollar.

Intervention in the foreign exchange market would involve selling Australian dollars to buy foreign currency.

Mr Stevens said intervention had previously been used to try to avoid the currency moving downwards too quickly, and now that the reverse was occurring, the RBA was keeping its options open.

"Overall, in this episode so far, the bank has not been convinced that large-scale intervention clearly passed the test of effectiveness versus cost," Mr Stevens said in the speech.

European Shares Fall, Asian Market Follows the Trend

As the indications are coming from the Federal Reserve’s last meeting that the U.S. may reduce stimulus in the coming months, European stocks fell to significant levels. The impact is also due to reports that Chinese manufacturing dropped more than forecast. Following the trend in U.S. stock-index futures yesterday and Asian shares also dropped today.

Major Indexes in Europe

All indexes fell to a great extent on the second consecutive days. Whereas the Stoxx Europe 600 Index retreated 0.6 percent and closed at 320.87 at 8:10 a.m. in London, Standard & Poor’s 500 Index futures expiring next month slipped 0.2 percent. Similarly, the MSCI Asia Pacific Index lost 0.6 percent.

Downbeat Asian Market

Manufacturing data going down in China has a great impact on the overall stock market of the region. Today, most Asian stock markets are weaker while emerging market currencies faltered as the dollar charged ahead after the U.S. Federal Reserve’s latest indication that it will taper stimulus to an extent.

NZD/USD 4th Attempt to Separate from .8200


  • The NZDUSD remains one of the more compelling longer term bearish possibilities. Consider that…
  • The decline from the April high unfolded in 5 waves (impulsive), the advance from the August low is defined by converging lines (pennant, common in bear market advances)
  • Action since 9/18 may compose a head and shoulders top.

Trading Strategy: This is the fourth attempt to separate from .8200. It’s unlikely that the market holds this time. A short position is likely after some consolidation (and when the opportunity is offered to add to the AUDUSD position).
