Today’s Trading Plan – EUR/USD and CAD/JPY

*Good morning/afternoon everyone!*

European currencies are trading sharply higher this morning as EUR and GBP recover from yesterday’s flash crash. Broad based U.S. dollar strength is also helping the move as risk appetite improves. The main focus today will be on the Canadian dollar as retail sales and CPI are due for release but we also have Fed speak (Bullard at 9:15am NY and Williams at 1:40pm NY). Given the sharp rise in the IVEY PMI index and the decline in retail sales the previous month our bias is to the upside for both CAD reports. If the data is good, USD/CAD should tumble all the way down to 1.35. U.S. rates are up slightly this morning which explains why USD/JPY has not extended its losses. AUD and NZD are poised to continuing underperforming its peers.

*The MAIN THEMES I see today are*

EUR,GBP strength
AUD, NZD underperformance
