Last week

The week was dominated by the exiting of USD short positions ahead of teh G20 meeting.  Once again the market has been let down as the G20 meeting failed to come out with the approproiate statement regarding the devaluation of currencies.

The week’s data was slightly better from a USD point of view and has helped keep some of the gains that the USD has made.

There is no local movement on its own right, everything is underpinned by the weakening USD story.

This week

All eyes this week will be on the USD FOMC meeting for further direction. Some are saying that the qualitative easing might mean that the FED will need to pump in another USD2 trillion into the economy to keep the markets liquid enough for the employment and domestic sectors to get back on track.

We also have the RBNZ on Thursday, but that will remain a non event, with no change to the rate and a steady as she goes comment.
