Trends for Today by 09/02/2010

Market Notes:

After ECB Chief Trichet surprising leaving a central bank conference in Australia early to attend and ECB meeting, the rumors on the forex market imply that the ECB will assist the Greece’s debt situation. The market hasn’t reacted to the rumor since the short positions against the EUR are at record levels.

Certainly the EUR appears to find fewer obstacles on the way down of late but, with positions too far loaded in one direction, traders are always keen to test the pain threshold of position holders and the risk of a stronger correction may be increasing.
Since there are no important fundamental releases today, any ECB announcement will have a major impact on the market.
