  • #Brazil benchmark equity index #Ibovespa suffered its biggest one-day decline since May 2017 and broke a 2-year uptrend after news broke that Latin America's largest country reported its first case of #Covid_19. It may be a painful session ahead when local markets open. https://t.co/YFLJD1gCVs

  • Looking at my majors-based #Yen index, #JPY could have quite the room to rally on average if there is a deeper turn in equities. The currency has still largely been consolidating since December on average and a break above the January and February highs could mark a bullish trend https://t.co/fIA4BeTmyf

Current Positions:

- [10/25] Long AUDJPY from 93.11, Stop at 92.90, Target 1 at 94.50, Target 2 at 95.65

- [10/25] Short GBPUSD from 1.6189, Stop at 1.6260, Target 1 at 1.6030

While I was looking long risk (via AUDJPY and S&P 500) coming out of the US fiscal deal and into the September US NFPs, the Chinese liquidity concerns that evolved midweek last week knocked out any optimism in markets. Nevertheless, with the AUDJPY having traded into significant support and a Bullish Falling Wedge having formed on short-term timeframes, I took a small long position (discussed in the DailyFX RTN, chart here).

Unrelated to broader risk trends, I also took a small GBPUSD short position on Friday following the UK 3Q'13 GDP release. While the UK continues to grow and at a faster pace than in prior periods, incoming economic data had indicated strength in the report and therefore any positivity was likely priced in.

Although I think the Fed on Wednesday will hurt the US Dollar, there is scope for a short-term Double Top in GBPUSD that could see price retrace back to 1.6000/30 before the next leg up (article here).
