I’d expect cable to be toppy 16320/30 during Asia with usual profit-takers emerging and of course dips to 16260 will attract technical buyers. Probably won’t even be that wide given that Thanksgiving hols tonight in US but we live in hope

New Zealand firms recorded a further lift in their overall level of optimism about the general economy. The general business confidence measure lifted from +53 in October to +61 in November, just shy of a fifteen-year high for the series. On a major divisional basis the retail sector recorded the largest lift in confidence in November, rising from +48 to +70, the highest across the five major divisions and the sector’s highest reading since July 1994. A fresh record was also set at the other end of the sectoral scale. The agriculture sector reported the lowest level of business confidence, but at +51, it has been nearly 20 years since the lowest sectoral level of optimism was this high.

nomura on capex.pdf (193.6 kB) Overall, the report was better than expected and, with mining investment increasing on the quarter; it signals that the peak in mining investment may be delayed.

chart keeps telling me ‘a very dangerous proposition’ … Id like to see the kumo top (just below 9150) on the hourly broken first, but even if that occurs, next critical mission is to conquer 0.9190/92. Only above 0.92/9210 we start to have a more constructive picture.

17:21:39

yes have reports from Citi and Barx supporting that view
17:21:50

fix views that is
17:23:43

in cable have $1.6376 as a short term target, 1.618% swing proj of the move back from $1.6331 to $1.6258, brings the $1.6381 2013 high into view as well …would want to see a break of $1.6331 before I got excited about that call though
17:24:48

Barclays summary of month end flows: FX Month-end rebalancing analysis

The market value of US equity markets have seen sharp increases since the end of October despite the selloff in US bonds (Figure 1). The relative movements are best explained by the better US economic data and dovish rhetoric from the Fed aimed at delinking any decision to taper asset purchases from potential rate hikes in the future. Outside of the US, equity markets elsewhere were mixed with only Japan registering gains. The rally in euro area bond markets has persisted since the ECB cut interest rates at the start of the month as expectations for further action continues to build. The movement in US markets dominates these, however. The rebalancing of FX hedges at month-end are expected to yield a mild/modest USD sell signal (Figure 2) with the stronger signal being versus the EUR.

CitiFX Wire.. EUR lower after German import pricesEURUSD has shed around 10 pips after German October import prices fell 0.7% MoM (expected -0.3%); these appear to have been taken as a barometer for the CPI data later. EURUSD is now 1.3572.

Australian dollar rose on back of better capital expenditure. Stop loss trigger above 0.9130 brought us up to high of 0.9141. There is an interesting story in FT about the report by Bureau of Resources and Energy Economics revealing that investments in Australia’s mining industry has fallen by $3bn to $240bn. Aud stayed around 0.9125-30 into Tokyo break; some sell orders are reported at 0.9150 with weak stops near 0.9175.

UsdJpy backed off towards 102.00 partly due to Nikkei paring gains and partly on the Aussie rally. Market is aware of stops placed under 101.85 coming from interbank accounts; offers lined up ahead of the 102.50-option barrier.

Very dull on the Euro front; there has been some talk of a small Asian central bank selling near 1.3610 but don’t think it is sizeable. Some banks mentioned renewed offers at 1.3590 up to 1.3620.
