Hi Ashraf,

With JPY having lost a bit of its safe-haven status, what do you think about EUR/JPY - it seems to have tremendous support and has also had weekly gains for about 6 weeks. Any thoughts on good plays for this pair? Thanks

Shankar, going long AUD vs EUR is a decent strategy, which in fact i sent out to CMC clients yesterday. We may see some Aussie retracement after yesterday's big move, and it could take time for it to regain tractionn. Look into selling CAD today.

Ashraf, i have been reading your commentary since you were at forexnews.com site

I usually dollar cost average currenccies. AT the moment I am buying Aud against eur. do you think this is the right strategy. I have enough cushion for margin calls.

thanks for the response. Also, what relationship do you link CRB related currencies such as CAD and AUD to global equity markets? Can these outperform in a vacuum of slumping equity markets? Thanks

Rob, Euro weakening after ECB's Weber said there's room for more rate cuts. we got to break above that key resistance of $1.3740. Use $1.3435 for your support fow now.. AUD and NZD doing much better, so you can hedge your euro long by shorting it against AUD. IFO sruvey from Germany on Wednesday will be important.

Hi Ashraf,

Wow, the EUR/USD is getting crushed. Are you sticking with your targets in today's IMT of 1.3740 to 1.3810? Or have we seen renewed downside after breaking through many support levels? Thanks

MIKESTILLER, yes that scenario is very possible indeed (USD falling more vs comms than against EUR and GBP). gold still seen at 1,100-1,200 before end of Q3.

RIM, I mentioned the yen in Friday's IMT. yen remains low yielding currency therefore normal for it to drop against most of currencies, but due to broad USD weakness, that offsets the weak yen story.

Best way to play USD weakness remains against AUD, NZD and NOK. Ive said this many times all over the webiste for teh past month and I continue to say it.
