Big news for this week!

Below are some announcements that may impact the markets this week:


The Yen and Swiss franc gained stature as the selloff in minor and exotic currencies continued apace today.  Traders are increasingly looking for safe havens as credit risks in China prompted demand for Japanese assets.

While the US dollar fell against the Yen today the outlook is favourable for the greenback as speculation the Fed will continue to reduce its stimulus even though recent data has suggested that the economy is slowing.
