Forex Market Outlook 10/26/11

Today is the day of reckoning for the Euro as the market is expecting the final resolution to the Euro debt crisis. At this point it is still uncertain at exactly what time the details of the plan will be released so stay on your toes today and pay attention to the news!

Yesterday’s risk aversion and subsequent sell-off non-withstanding, the markets have been moving markedly higher since early October and it looks like we have put in a bit of a “V-bottom”, which I identified in yesterday’s chart of the day. It will be interesting to see if the market can sustain this rally in the face of the Euro announcement.

Well it looks like the market is unaware that there is major risk potential in the marketplace as stocks and commodities took off yesterday and it was “game on” for risk appetite. As a result, the Euro as well as the commodity bloc currencies moved higher despite the Euro debt decision due out tomorrow.

Does the market know something that we don’t? As often is the case, the answer is simply “no”. What the market does know is that it wants to take on risk and wants to buy stocks (especially large fund managers who have posted less than stellar returns) as corporate earnings have been largely better than expected. Throw in higher Chinese PMI data that showed that they aren’t slowing entirely and you have a recipe for gains.

The market has been range-bound headed into the weekend, but man, those ranges are pretty big! I was surprised as I thought we’d see the ranges tighten up but that hasn’t been the case. Yesterday, the markets made huge moves as various news trickled out regarding the Euro debt crisis.

It is times like these when I tend to be more cautious, as it is difficult to know when news may hit or what its impact may be. Yesterday, the markets were selling off as risk aversion picked up throughout the early US session, only to completely reverse after “news” came out that the size of the rescue plan is going to be in the magnitude of $1.3 Trillion, with a “T”. That is encouraging news for the market, as in this case more is better.

This morning all eyes are on Athens where the Greek rioters are protesting against further austerity measures which are to be voted to ensure that Greece is taking the steps necessary to continue the bailout discussion. The Troika will be reporting the economic state of affairs in Greece but so far the sentiment has been that that was Greece has done is insufficient to date.

Yesterday’s market turn-around exemplifies the type of market action we may continue to see until the Euro debt crisis is finally resolved to the satisfaction of the world. Yes, I said the world. Markets yesterday were selling off on lowered expectations that this weekend’s European summit would produce that resolution, but a rumor hit the tape from a newspaper in Euro that said that France and Germany had agreed to expand the size of the ESFS to 2 trillion euros, much larger than had been previously agreed upon.

With the overhang of the realization that indeed Euro zone leaders will not have a resolution in place by next week like the G-20 leaders asked for, it is now questionable what exactly Merkozy were referring to when they claimed to be able to have something ready by early November. Is their timetable still in play? From where I sit, it doesn’t seem likely.

Over the weekend, G-20 leaders re-iterated their desire that EU leaders pick up the pace and come up with the solution to the Euro debt crisis, essentially giving them a week to finalize the plan. This provided the market with some optimism to start out the day, but that optimism was short-lived as Merkel’s reps sought to lower expectations.

The message was that essentially the “dream” of solving the crisis in the next week was not likely, essentially dousing risk appetite lower. While European leaders believe that they have identified 5 areas that need to be addressed, as always, the devil is in the details.

It looks as though the European rescue plan is starting to take shape as a meeting of G-20 leaders is likely to produce a framework for the resolution. It is then likely that whatever emerges will be discussed at a meeting next week of European leaders and if that is agreed to, then we could have the final resolution by early November as promised by Merkel and Sarkozy.
