The 'Bernanke Bubble' continued to inflate by never been seen proportions with the DOW breaking all records with no apparent fundamental trigger. The sheer volume of liquidity being pumped into the US economy has resulted in this huge expansion in risk, share markets.

There are no fundamental economic reasons for the moves and earnings kicked off with lower expectations. In Europe, German trade numbers improved with the Current Account surplus improving although this was due to contraction. Exports fell but imports fell at an even greater pace, improving the number.

The EUR improved to trade 1.3100 and the GBP to 1.5335. Risk currencies with higher yields benefited with the KIWI to 0.8500 and the AUD back above 1.0500.

Confidence is sky high and the Bulls are on the biggest run for many years. This unprecedented surge in risk activity will correct but it will be a brave person that picks the when!

Collinson FX market Commentary: April 9, 2013

Markets were steady overnight as the US embarks on Earnings season with the traditional release of Alcoa after the bell. After stella earnings for a number of quarters, expectations are low which may allow for some upside with any positive surprises. Equity markets recovered from Fridays US Jobs shock, with the Bank of Japan embarking on its own unprecedented QE.

The promise of a massive extension of the Central Banks balance sheet will give huge impetus to the equity markets and allow the Yen to weaken, stimulating trade growth. Of course this raises the stakes in the 'currency wars' and the fight to the bottom. The EUR held ground around the 1.3000 and the GBP 1.5250 with a small rise in German Industrial Production despite a fall in EU investor Confidence. The AUD regained 1.0400 after a deal was signed by the PM with China to allow the direct trade of the AUD with the RMB.

This should allow for the enhancement of bilateral trade although the actual trading mechanism will be interesting as the Chinese currency remains fixed while the AUD is floating. Locally Holden announced further layoffs disappointing many as the reality of a high cost economy continues to manifest throughout the Manufacturing sector.

The KIWI tested just under 0.8450 faring well in the face of debasement of major, measured currencies. The fear of inflationary bubbles has prevented Central Banks in the higher yielding countries to enter the battle to the bottom but there is scope to act.
