Weekly recap from Florida


Oct.24.2014

Happy Friday from Florida! Down here on business and  just like most traders, I continue trading no matter where I go. Especially because this week marked the US dollar come-back and I needed to catch up on some losing trades. This has been my view since yesterday. Life is tough ;)

Flordia business on the beach

Although the economic data didn't quite compliment the technical bullish dollar outlook, yesterday we saw a major jump on the USD/JPY pair which brought the pair back to a two-week high. The dollar strength could have to do with the Russian sanction politics and oil prices.

Even the first case of Ebola in New York didn't affect the US dollar yesterday although. Unless there are more cases reported in New York in the next few weeks the Ebola story is likely to diminish in its impact on the markets. Of course the nightmare scenario for investors and the public at large would be in Ebola mutates and becomes airborne or even becomes easily transmittable through touch. For now however there is no evidence that the virus spreads any other way but through bodily fluids and therefore the Ebola story is likely to remain a background risk to the market.

Today the markets are mostly consolidating with the only hot economic data being the US New Home Sales report and the anticipation of the weekend.
