BKSWING – 4 New Orders for Week of 07.28.14

There are no shortages of market moving event risks on the FX calendar this week and while we think that FOMC and NFP could be uneventful, there’s always scope for an outsized surprise especially if the Fed chooses to acknowledge the improvement in the unemployment rate. If the FOMC statement sounds a bit more optimistic, it should be negative for GBP/USD. If NFPs surprise to the downside, EUR/JPY will suffer. There are also plenty of attractive relative value trades that we like including GBP/NZD and EUR/AUD. With no UK data scheduled for release until Friday, sterling could experience a stronger recovery while NZD should remain under pressure. The same is true for euro but AUD should find support from healthier Chinese data. Given these views, we are placing the following new pending orders:
