Commentary

Markets took a back seat to the international terrorism emanating from Spain and spreading. The US political scene was highlighted by resignation of key Trump advisor. This may be seen as a sacrifice to the pressure from the left. The EUR traded 1.1750, while the GBP held 1.2870, amidst directionless trade from the Dollar. Commodity currencies took advantage of the lull, with the AUD breaking back above 0.7300, while the NZD pushed back o 0.7300. Global trade and PMI data will dominate economic markets, during the coming week, culminating in the Jackson hole gathering later in the week. Look out for Black Swans in a relatively quiet economic data week.
