Aussie Pares Post-RBA Gain; BlackRock Sees Drop to 85 U.S. Cents
The Australian dollar touched a one-month high after the Reserve Bank said there were further signs
easy policy and a weak currency were having an impact. Strength
in the Aussie won’t be sustained, BlackRock Inc. said.
The Aussie rose against the yen after the Bank of Japan
boosted lending programs. Australia’s currency held a climb
against most major peers after minutes of the RBA’s last meeting
signaled “a period of stability in interest rates.” Sustained
declines in the Aussie would help the nation’s economy adjust to
a drop in mining activity, the RBA said, avoiding comments about
the currency being too high.
“There is less emphasis on the level of the currency
assisting in the rebalancing of the Australian economy,” said
Robert Rennie, the global head of currency and commodity
strategy at Westpac Banking Corp. in Sydney. “If they wanted
to, they could have added more concern that Australia needs a
sustainably low level for the currency. The fact that they did
not, should help the Aussie dollar pop.”
Australia’s dollar was at 90.43 U.S. cents as of 5:16 p.m.
in Sydney, from 90.32 yesterday, and touched 90.81, the highest
level since Jan. 13. It gained 0.8 percent to 92.81 yen and
climbed 0.4 percent to NZ$1.0833.
The Aussie may climb to 92 U.S. cents, said Rennie.

More hawkish than expected = good for currency (for JPY in our case)
Yen Dropped Against Dollar After BOJ's Statement
Yen dropped against dollar and other major currencies, after the
Bank of Japan decided to expand its lending program by 60 trillion to 70
trillion yen per year, in order to realize the targeted inflation of
BOJ also doubled a core part of a growth lending program to 7
trillion yen, leading to forecasts that next month will witness more
stimulus measures added to financial markets. Hence, the government
expects the new sales tax increase in April to have a strong negative
impact on the economy, so it needed further monetary stimulus to
overcome such negative effect.
Nevertheless, USD/JPY gained for the second straight day to record a
high of 102.49, while it was trading near 102.05 levels before the
released statement. Euro also picked up against yen to reach the highest
in three weeks at 140.55 from a low of 139.87.

Beyond the Bank of England (BoE) Minutes, an upbeat labor report may a
more meaningful reaction in the GBPUSD as it raises the outlook for
growth, and it seems as though Governor Mark Carney will look to
normalize monetary policy sooner rather than later as the central bank
anticipates a stronger recovery in 2014.

Trading the News: U.K. Retail Sales (adapted from dailyfx article)
The British Pound may face a larger correction over the remainder of the
week as U.K. Retail Sales are expected to contract 1.2% in January.
Time of release: 02/21/2014 9:30 GMT, 4:30 EST
Primary Pair Impact: GBPUSD
Forecast: -1.0% to 1.0%
Why Is This Event Important:
A slowdown in household spending may drag on the British Pound as it
dampens the prospects of seeing a Bank of England (BoE) rate hike later
this year or even in early 2015, but the data print may pave the way for
fresh highs in the GBPUSD should it highlight an improved outlook for
growth and inflation.

Trading the News: U.S. Consumer Confidence (adapted from dailyfx article)
The Conference Board’s Consumer Confidence survey is expected to narrow
to 80.0 in February and a marked decline in household sentiment may
trigger a bearish reaction in the U.S. dollar as it dampens the outlook
for growth and inflation.
Time of release: 02/25/2014 15:00 GMT, 10:00 EST
Primary Pair Impact: EURUSD
Forecast: 78.0 to 82.0
Why Is This Event Important:
With the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) poised to discuss another
$10B taper at the March 19 meeting, a dismal confidence reading may have
a greater impact on the interest rate outlook, and the greenback may
face additional headwinds over the near to medium-term as the central
bank retains the dovish twist to its forward-guidance.
