What’s Moving

It was rough going overnight, with the market not really interested in unwinding safe haven trades, despite the lack of major activity on the Russian/Ukrainian border. There was some switching from Dollars into Yen, but most of the other majors traded tight sideways ranges.

Equities had a bad day, with all major indexes in the red, after the NATO headline and on continued mutterings from Biden that the attack could happen “any day now.”

Gold had a solid session, posting a fresh six-month high on the weaker equities.


Local trading is expected to trade in the usual Friday manner, especially with a lack of major trading incentives overnight. The only data release locally today is Japanese National Core CPI (E: +0.3%), which is unlikely to have a major impact on dealings.
