Action, Reaction, what now? This is the stage we have entered after the Gaps we saw in yesterday’s open. However, in an unexpected manner, EURUSD staged a remarkable comeback and trading near 1.1280 after dropping to 1.0954. Asian markets recovered from yesterday’s bloodbath where major European indices suffered the worst drop since 2011. A similar picture also across the Atlantic where US stocks suffered their worst day in a year.

The strong rebound in the EURUSD was attributed to a variety of factors;

  1. Hope that a last minute deal will emerge
  2. Intervention of the Swiss National Bank which stepped in an order to prevent a larger drop in EURCHF,
  3. Profit taking from EURUSD shorts
  4. The inverse correlation of the EURUSD and European stocks (So as investors sold off their shares, they had to exchange these into Euros)
  5. Speculation that the events in the Eurozone will force the FED not to hike rates in September so as to safeguard the US economy’s growth
    In china, the sell off is uglier. Major indexes continue to be in a freefall making this the worst month in years. As a result, and combination of all these events, the market is in a risk off mode.

What to watch for today? Greece is supposed to make a repayment to the IMF today worth EUR 1.6 billion by 22:00 GMT. German retail sales and UK Q1 GDP at 08:30GMT will also be key.
As we mentioned yesterday, do not try to understand the market moves as they happen. When fear is the key driver of actions, many times moves will not make sense. Just be prepared for them.
