Talking Points:

- Chinese credit concerns spillover into FX markets.

- Emerging market concerns provoking flight to safety.

- AUDUSD and GBPAUD trades maturing.

To keep up with the European data and news as the week goes forward, be sure to sign up for my distribution list.

Emerging market pressure has ramped up the past few days, with currencies like the Argentinian Peso and Russian Ruble coming under pressure. As distant risk-related cousins, the commodity currencies, the Australian and New Zealand Dollars, are under significant pressure. The AUDUSD and GBPAUD trades covered earlier this week continue to evolve favorably.
