Trends for today by 30/12/2009

Market Notes:
Last days of 2009 the market is unpredictable. For example:
· We’re used to an oil-CAD correlation, however today we see crude oil future prices are climbing up, but the CAD is a weakest currency of the day.
· AUD and NZD usually go same direction. Today AUD is weakening, but NZD is a strongest currency of the day.
To our opinion, the fundamental news at 10:30 GMT and 14:45 GMT will have a strong affect on the market, if they will come out different from the consensus.
