Eco Calendar thin keep an eye on Politics

Global equities continue to retreat despite a decent round of overnight fundamentals, as Greece's high stakes election drama weighs on market sentiment. European equity benchmarks are lower and Dow futures are suggesting a tiny drop at the market open. Global currency markets are divided with the A$, NZ$, pound sterling and CAD all up against the USD while the won, Scandinavian currencies and the rand are all lower and the euro is flat. Most European debt markets are rallying or are flat across 10s except for UK 10s that were disappointed by flat stimulus from the BoE.

Solid European manufacturing data didnít much help the global market tone. French manufacturing production climbed 1.4% m/m and far surpassed consensus expectations for a small drop, even as total industrial production fell thanks to lower electricity and gas production following the prior monthís massive gain in this category. Italian manufacturing also climbed 0.5% and surpassed expectations. UK manufacturing production climbed 0.9% m/m which nearly doubled consensus. German Chancellor Angela Merkel is sticking to her guns and good for her. She reiterated this morning that deficit financed stimulus to growth is a misguided path, and that austerity is the only solution. This continues to put the Franco-German partnership on a collision course over the summer. In the US yesterday data was received with mixed sentiment. Chairman Bernankeís speech was market neutral. Chinese data has been lackluster, but not market movers.

1.2859 | 1.2892 | 1.2913

SUMMARY : Bearish
TREND : Down trend
MA10 : Bearish
MA20 : Bearish
STOCHASTIC : Oversold


MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Major bearish reversal pattern has broken psychological support at 1.3000. A sustained close below 1.3000 unlocks the important multi-month reversal pattern for a fast move into 1.2626 (16 January). Only a sustained daily close back above 1.3284 puts this scenario on hold for a potential recovery into our upside target zone at 1.3430/60 (200-day average). Signals all continue to remain bearish

DAILY WEEKLY MONTHLY



1.6001 | 1.6047 | 1.609

SUMMARY : Bearish
TREND : Down trend
MA10 : Bearish
MA20 : Bearish
STOCHASTIC : Bearish


MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Watch for more choppy activity over the short-term the overall tone remains positive. A return to 1.6199 would suggest completion of the correction, setting the stage for an attack on 1.6302 then 1.6500/1.6618 (psychological) as the bull run extends. A close back below 1.6063 from here would suggest stalling upside momentum, with support at 1.5805 watch for key support at 1.5603.

USDJPY :79.841 / 79.847
DAILY WEEKLY MONTHLY



79.2439 | 79.4252 | 79.6549
80.0659 | 80.2472 | 80.4769

SUMMARY : Bearish
TREND : Up trend
MA10 : Bearish
MA20 : Bearish
STOCHASTIC : Bearish


MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

The yen continues to trade within a multi-week bear channel, only a snap back above the upper ceiling near 80.50 signals a potential recovery higher into 82.00. This may offer renewed buying opportunities. A sustained weakness beneath 80.00-80.12 (38.2% Fibonacci retrace/January advance), will lead to further setbacks into critical support at 79.16 (61.8% Fibonacci).
