EU Session Bullet Report – Investors seek safety after Paris Attacks

1

Tragic events in Paris over the weekend sent shock waves around the globe as investors’ seek safe assists such as US treasuries and GOLD, something that might continue in the short term. In FX this means Strength for JPY, CHF and even USD. Actually, EURUSD opened with a gap lower to 1.0730 from 1.0773 Friday night. USDJPY also gapped from 122.60 to 122.20 while GOLD opened 7 dollars higher to 1090 compared to Fridays close. Stock markets also gapped lower around the world as confidence took a hit to the worse.

For the week ahead, markets will continue to absorb the Paris events. In terms of economic news, Inflation data could be the main driver in the market in addition to geopolitical developments. In particular, UK CPI and US CPI would be closely watched on Tuesday. An upside surprise in US CPI would further solidify the case for a Fed rate hike in December.
