Should’ve stayed


Sep.18.2014

USD/JPY continued moving up and surpassed our previous target of 108, reaching a whole new 6 year high.

You can imagine how pissed off I am now because I got out of the market a bit earlier and missed out on those delicious pips. I should've stayed, right?

Turns out I was not the only one who got extremely bored during Ms. Janet Yellen's FOMC statement yesterday.

I even heard from others that they  "would like to see her (Yellen) dancing on the forex dance floor" and I completely agree!

Fed Head Yellen was her usual cautious self during her speech, but the dollar bulls somehow continued dancing up on the forex dance floor.

invest diva crying pissed off

Elsewhere in the UK the day of reckoning has finally arrived and the ballot boxes are ready to be filled,and the dissolution of the United Kingdom is potentially upon us. Yesterday on the final day of campaigning, the British government brought out the Big Guns as Gordon Brown gave a truly rousing speech in a final campaign push, calling upon Scots to reject independence. Urging the silent majority “to be silent no more…let no narrow nationalism split us asunder”. He called the silent masses to stand up and be counted lambasting anyone who dares to vote yes stating “this is not the Scotland I know”.

The market has already been pricing in the “No” vote quite aggressively and we expect an continuation of this today. One Citigroup was cited as saying “ Not a single one of our clients is preparing for a Scottish exit.” If there vote does fly in the face of expectations there could be egg on a lot of people’s faces, furthermore a lot of cash has been put on the lines as trading volumes amplified today.

Today the data set is all but irrelevant as unless there is seriously shocking news . Weekly jobless claims in the US dropped 36,000 to 280,000 comparing to the estimated 305,000. US August Housing  Starts, annualized number of new residential buildings that began construction during the previous month dropped 14.4%.  Fed Head Janet Yellen speaks again today at 1.45 PM GMT
