U.S. Homebuilder Confidence Holds Steady In November
Homebuilder confidence in the U.S. held steady in the month of
November, according to a report released by the National Association of
Home Builders on Monday.
The report said the NAHB/Wells Fargo
Housing Market Index came in at 54 in November, unchanged from the
downwardly revised reading for October.
Economists had expected the index to come in unchanged compared to the 55 originally reported for the previous month.
NAHB noted that the reading above 50 indicates that more builders
viewed market conditions as good than poor for the sixth consecutive
NAHB Chief Economist David Crowe said, "The fact that
builder confidence remains above 50 is an encouraging sign, considering
the unresolved debt and federal budget issues cause builders and
consumers to remain on the sideline."

Dollar up on RBA's cautious optimism
he Australian dollar edged up on Tuesday after the Reserve Bank of
Australia noted mounting evidence that interest rate cuts were working
to stimulate the economy, though it would not rule out the chance of
easing further if necessary.
The Aussie initially dipped to a session low of 93.53 US
cents, from an early start at 93.77 US cents, but quickly recovered to
last trade at 93.86 US cents.
"Investors were expecting stronger jaw-boning from the RBA
about the high currency but didn't get it," said Joseph Capurso, a
strategist at Commonwealth Bank of Australia.
He expects the Aussie to remain subdued this week as the US dollar shows signs of stabilisation across the board.

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.
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.
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.

Trading the News: Canada Consumer Price Index (based on Canadian Dollar Risks Further Losses Amid Threat for Deflation article)
A further slowdown in Canada’s Consumer Price Index may highlight a
bearish outlook for the Canadian dollar as it heightens the threat for
Time of release: 11/22/2013 13:30 GMT, 8:30 EST
Primary Pair Impact: USDCAD
Forecast: 0.6% to 1.0%
Why Is This Event Important:
It seems as though BoC Governor Stephen Poloz no longer sees a need for
higher interest rates in light of the slowing recovery, and the central
bank may adopt a more dovish tone for monetary policy as growth and
inflation remains subdued.
How To Trade This Event Risk
Bearish CAD Trade: Canada Inflation Slows to 0.8% or Lower
CPI data out of Canada showed September price growth at 1.1%, beating
estimates of a 1.0% print. The USD/CAD pair weakened heading into the
weekly close as pressure mounted on the greenback due to speculation of a
delayed Fed taper- a result of the two week long US Government
shutdown. The year over year print this time around is estimated to be a
dismal 0.8% due to impacts from the shutdown in addition to a decline
in fuel prices across the board. Sustained lower crude prices will
continue to put pressure on inflation levels and may prompt dovish
intervention by the Bank of Canada as the Federal Reserve looks to step
back asset purchases over the next few months. Disappointing CPI prints
moving forward do not bode well for CAD strength, especially in the
context of a BoC that just removed pledges to raise rates in the future.
