Markets were hit hard after the terrorist attack on the Boston marathon. The first major terrorist attack on the US mainland since 9/11 has shaken America and the markets. Markets were lower as sentiment had slipped earlier with the major hit to commodities lead by the collapse in Gold.

The rebound occured overnight with the DOW making triple digit gains and Gold rebounding strongly. This was expected and the question is to the validity of the recovery or a 'dead cat bounce'? In Europe things continue to unwind economically with the German and EU ZEW Economic Sentiment reports released and disappointing. These indicators are a very important litmus tests for the state of the EU economy and both have been hit hard reflecting the dire state of the single market. In the US, earnings continued to add to the confidence of the Bulls and Housing Starts rose 7%. Unfortunately Building permits fell 3.9% contradicting the data in this sector.

The Fed continues to keep the foot flat to the floor pushing risk assets higher crushing the negative economic fundamentals revealed by statistics. The inexorable rise in equities continues and to buck Bernanke is standing front of the runaway freight train!

This has given solace to the commodity currencies who drew confidence from the rebound with the AUD moving back to 1.0380 and the KIWI to just under 0.8500. The Bull run has resumed although Geo-Political issues remain a major obstacle with real economic realities hitting home. May is on the way!

Collinson FX market Commentary: April 16, 2013
Explosions around the Boston marathon has sent fear through markets. Equities crashed after domestic terrorism again hit the USA. Responsibility has not yet been claimed, or afforded, but it does seem terrorism has again hit at the heart of America, the Boston Marathon.

Equities were hit hard, with the Dow down 200, and associated risk assets also taking it on the nose. The AUD was impacted earlier after Chinese data concluded a fall in growth. Chinese GDP only grew at 7.7% missing the expectations of 8%. Industrial Production was lower, dipping below 10%, although it is hard to gauge the value of Chinese statistics. It is more a directional movement and this is the wrong way!

The main commodity currency has fallen from 1.0500 to trade 1.0350 and the KIWI below 0.8400 after testing 0.8600. Fear and instability always test risk markets and terrorism on American soil will scare many. It is not hard to guess the source.

Developments will determine the direction of markets, short term, but the fundamentals will probably enhance these instabilities. May is on the way!
