US markets began trade for September after the long weekend on a negative note.

Manufacturing data dissappointed with the ISM Manufacturing contracting at its greatest rate in three years. The ISM dropped below the static rate of 50, which was expected, to 49.6. On top of this construction spending hit a new year low shrinking 0.9%. Many leading analysts are now expecting a substantial correction in equities over the next two months reversing recent gains.

The markets have almost reached pre-GFC levels without any substantial fundamental economic recovery. The stabilisation has been bed-rocked by Central Bank monetary intervention which is necessarily temporary with substantial long-term consequences.

In Europe Moody's has moved the EU zone to a 'negative outlook' and warned of downgrades to the main players, and previously sound members, of Germany, Netherlands and France. Expectations are high for the ECB meeting adding liquidity through an interest rate cut and the Bond-Buying program.

There is no unanimity on the Bond program or the mechanism for implementation. Germany is under huge pressure to bend from fellow members and the Obama regime who fear an implosion prior to November elections. The EUR traded below 1.2600 after early gains subsided as risk appetite fades.

The growing discontent has spread to commodity currencies with the AUD trading 1.0220 and the KIWI 0.7940.

The AUD remains under pressure with local economic data turning bad and Govt revenues contracting impacting the budget. The Current Account improved, but for the wrong reasons. Imports fell at a greater pace than exports reflecting the slump in consumer demand locally and global demand for exports. Markets will be focused on the ECB meeting and the all important Jobs reports in the US.

Collinson FX market Commentary: September 4, 2012

The markets in the US were closed for Labor Day so the focus was on Asia and Europe. Chinese Manufacturing PMI continued to deteriorate falling to 47.6 in a steady downward trend.

Markets remained steady as the prospect grows of Chinese monetary intervention. Growing global economic fallout from weakening conditions are now only supported by Central Bank intervention. Bernanke has indicated a penchant for action if conditions continue to weaken.

In Europe, the ECB meeting is expected to announce a much awaited Bond-Buying program to alleviate funding pressures on Italy and Spain. Questions from the Bundesbank have been supported by the German Economic Minister likening the program to a drug administered to the waiting addict! The EUR remained steady trading 1.2590 and the GBP 1.5900 after some improving Manufacturing data perhaps reflecting some light at the end of the UK tunnel.

The Chinese problems have spread to commodity driven Australia with the AUD slipping to 1.0250. The Commodity price index slipped as terms of trade weaken. Inflation spiked to 2.2% impacted by the Govt's new Carbon Tax and Retail Sales dropped 0.8% surprising analysts who were expecting a gain.

Job Advertisements fell 2.3% tempting the RBA to cut rates at today's meeting.

Most surveyed expect no action although some may be required in the near future.

The KIWI followed back to under 0.8000 with Central Bank intervention being the only positive globally. If the only good news is further money printing markets are in real trouble!

Collinson FX market Commentary: September 3, 2012

Jackson Hole came and went.

The anti-climax was palpable, although the prospect of QE remained with Bernanke continuing to promise an additional fix. The prospect was enough to break the weeks equity losses and sustain a rebound.

The European Bailout rumbled on with the Bond-Buying Bank Bailout set to be announced in the coming week. This will temporarily allow Spain and Italy to issue enough debt at a manageable rate with the ECB funding the issuance either directly or indirectly (allowing Banks to enrich themselves in the process!).

Funding further debt does not address the cause of the problem and that is the endless deficits! Draghi has promised to do 'whatever it takes' but this will not be enough. The EUR rebounded to 1.2580 with the prospect of more US Dollars in circulation.

The new week will be flooded with economic data in Europe and the US highlighted by crucial employment reports. Central bank decisions will also drive sentiment with the BofE, ECB, Bank of Canada, RBA all announcing. Expectations will be low, except for the ECB, but Draghi has built expectations in the Latin way.

KIWI broke back above 0.8000 and the AUD reached 1.0345.
