Last week

Kiwi outperformed last week as some of the data releases came out on the positive side, and the market was caught overly short Kiwi against the AUD. However, the recent range has held tight and I don’t think that we will see this range break this week, but that will depend on the FOMC meeting on Thursday.

The world was caught short USD’s as well, so we have seen a rally there, but not the big correction that we have all been looking for. All in all, a quiet week.

This week

The big event will be the FOMC meeting on Thursday. This will define the direction of the USD for the rest of the year, and by proxy, where everything else will head. It all depends on the size of the QE2, that’s not the ship, its the amount of liquidity the FED pump into the system.

RBA this week across the ditch will also be closely watched, I’m thinking that they will raise rates but only by a small amount, 25 pips, and this of course, will come in the middle of the big horse race down in Melbourne.
