Setup for EUR/USD by Barclays (adapted from the article)
EUR/USD: "We have turned bearish against resistance in
the 1.1260/90 area and look for a move towards former range highs near
1.1060. A break below 1.1060 would signal an end to the corrective
bounce off 1.0525 and further downside towards 1.0780."

AUD/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: National Australia Bank Business Confidence and 39 pips price movement
2016-02-09 00:30 GMT | [AUD - NAB Business Confidence]
if actual > forecast (or previous one) = good for currency (for AUD in our case)
[AUD - NAB Business Confidence] = Level of a diffusion index based on surveyed businesses, excluding the farming industry.
"Financial market volatility has persisted, raising the risk of an
adverse impact on Australian business that could threaten the recovery
seen in the non-mining economy. However, today’s NAB Monthly Business
Survey suggests that business confidence – where the negative effects
from financial markets are likely to be felt first – have held up
reasonably well in the face of this uncertainty. The confidence index
remained unchanged at +2 points in January.
According to NAB Group Economist Alan Oster, “Given all the
volatility in equity and financial markets, this is yet another
relatively good result from the Business Survey. It suggests things
remain broadly on track for the non-mining economy”.
