The unsettling calm that we have grown used to in 2014 has once again settled over the market. However, there are is enough turmoil below the surface that traders are not willing to set their trading on cruise control.

Meanwhile, rate speculation is evolving. The volatility from the New Zealand and Australian dollar is still throbbing, the ECB stimulus push now finds the Euro dangerously quiet after a critical break, the USDollar is facing serious event risk next week, and the British Pound faces an immediate threat to its pristine rate forecast in the form of the UK 2Q GDP release due today.
