EURUSD Collapses Between ECB and NFPs, USDJPY Hits 6-Year High

EURUSD Collapses Between ECB and NFPs, USDJPY Hits 6-Year High

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

The ECB pulled out all the stops with a rate cut and asset purchase program

EURUSD collapsed over 200 points for the biggest move in nearly 3 years on the heaviest volume in two

• Can NFPs extend the EURUSD's bear trend? Can it overcome risk trends to keep USDJPY at six year highs?

Welcome back volatility. The FX markets were rocking this past session after the ECB announced a significant upgrade to its stimulus efforts. Unexpectedly, the central bank announced a 'traditional' round of rate cuts as well as a frequently-debated asset purchase program. The result of this move was a EURUSD plunge of over 200 pips for the biggest drop since November 2011 and on the heaviest speculative volume since August 2012. With this move, the people now interested in EURUSD's bear trend are finding an equally large crowd saying it is now overdone. The upcoming NFPs release may help settle the debate. We look at the extraordinary activity and opportunity showing through on the majors in today's Trading Video.
