US markets reopened after the long week end with little to cheer about. There was no significant economic data releases to drive market direction so the focus fell to earnings, which disappointed.

Earnings missing expectations takes the wind out of an over valued equity market, fueled by extreme monetary policy. Failure to provide earnings for over valued stocks merely confirms the bubble. This did not assist the progress of the Dollar with the EUR moving to 1.3550 and the GBP back to 1.6475.

European markets were buoyed by strong ZEW Economic Sentiment reports in Germany and the Eurozone. The economic sentiment report raced to 41.2 from 32.4 in Germany and charged from 68.3 to 73.3 across the single market. The good news from Europe may be short lived with little in the way of solid data to support a substantial rally.

The commodity currencies took advantage of the flagging Dollar with the KIWI bursting aggressively through 0.8300, as a slightly higher inflation number trumpets interest rate hikes again , and the AUD managing to breach 0.8800. Economic data releases across Asia, Europe and the US grow in momentum, as the week progresses, and this will drive currency direction.

Collinson FX market Commentary: January 21, 2014, 2013

US markets were closed for the MLK Holiday, so we saw little action in the markets, which is likely to continue until at least Wednesday when the river of economic data commences.

The EUR was steady, trading 1.3550, and the GBP 1.6425. European markets also remained steady, despite some tremors from Asia. Chinese economic data disappointed with GDP slipping from 7.8% to 7.7%. Industrial Production also slowed, falling from the previous 10% growth rate, back to 9.7%. A slow down in Asian markets is not wholly unexpected but the slack, globally, is expected to be taken up by the developed economies.

The AUD hit four year lows with the disappointing data from China but recovered to open around 0.8800. The KIWI also came under pressure, with local House Prices contracting 1%, reversing the recent explosion in prices and sales.

The NZD also recovered with European markets and will open around 0.8250. A building crescendo of economic data releases and the impact on Central Bank Monetary Policy will drive the remainder of the week.
