Racza, obviously strong job report tomorrow will be good for risk appetite and if stocks rally well, then eurusd to regain 1.4960.

Hi Ashraf,

We saw some crazy movements yesterday (wednesday) during the day and after the FOMC. Do techs still suggest Eur/usd to head south and break below 1.46 this week? Or at least some correction?

Kind regards,

regi, one more thing, yes, we can see higher stocks and higher bond yields (on classic explanation that rising stocks take away gains from bonds as well as on expectation of improved economy i.e. higher inflation).

regi, careful as there is NOT CLEAR CUT correlation between USD and yields and no clear cut correlation between stocks and yields. these relationships vary from cycle to another, depending on what is the general driver in the market.

One thing for sure is the long term bullishness for bond yields (bearishness for bond prices).

Ashraf,

I understand that inflation fears and overall deterioration of US govt borrowing will curb demand for Treasurys, driving down price and pushing yields up. This also falls in line with your general views on USD strength against risk currencies. One thing I had a question about is that yields tend to trade in the direction of the equities market. Can we expect to see a situation of falling equities in addition to rising 10 yr yields? Thank you.

Ashraf very interesting as usual.....putting this together with USD/JPY graph and seasonal cyclicality....doesnt it call for a 1Q 2010 perfect timing for the FED to start hiking rates?
