emerging market weakness if continues will be highly beneficial for the USD as risky cash unwinds back to USD.

Dear Group,

Be sure the take some profits as the London close nears. You'll get a chance to re-establish a better position if you're still bearish EM and bullish USD. Those who did not get in yet, that will be the chance for you to enter if you wish.

hamish, look for 1.1100-20, a slight retreat then towards 1.13. Keep an eye on oil, NOW BELOW 67

Asthraf, don't worry I'm short CAD now trading 1.1058 . Do you expect a pullback or do we still hold for 1.13 ?

raulin, very good point. But not sure if the positive Japns GDP will be sufficient in extending Jpns stocks rally, shrugging last week's US selloff and playing risk appetite at the expense of the yen. Some profittaking in Japan has to ensue. And dont forget the deteriorating technicals in Shanghai Composite.

Hi Ashraf
Do you not think that positive news about Japan GDP will be positive for Japan equities positive for aussie/jpy and negative for JPY ? The only reason to buy the low yielding yen is in a risk averse environment. I do agree with you about usd/jpy looking bearish overall especially stalling at 97
