The Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) will release its interest rate decision on September 23 at 10:00 (GMT+8). NZD/USD has weakened by about 150-pips with the overnight implied volatility recording 15.5%, the highest reading since the August RBNZ meeting.To get more news about WikiFX, you can visit wikifx official website.
  The RBNZ will neither a make monetary policy statement nor hold a press conference and is expected to keep its benchmark interest rate unchanged at the record-low level with no more stimulus, despite the deep recession in the economy.
  RBNZ officials previously never showed any dovishness. Currently, the market of interest rate futures does not price in a rate cut by the RBNZ until April next year. NZD's decline looks mainly driven by traders' risk aversion.

  Technically speaking, NZD/USD closed below its 50-day moving average while the bearish MACD crossover also points to mounting downward pressure. The New Zealand dollar could face renewed selling pressure if the RBNZ doubles down on its jawboning efforts. Furthermore, NZD/USD could also hasten the decline if the upcoming release of global PMI data from IHS Markit disappoints markets and fuels risk aversion further.

The US Dollar Index bounced up by around 1% after releasing the minute of Federal Reserve Board on 19 Aug, breaking the record high since this March. The minute shows that the board tends to adopt more dovish approach in monetary policy. Yet, Why did the US Dollar Index make such a big bounce-up, driving those non-US dollar or even precious metal down?To get more news about WikiFX, you can visit wikifx official website.
  According to the minute of Federal Reserve Board, some of the committee members of FOMC agreed to adopt the further easing monetary policy to cope with the negative impact bought by COVID-19; however, traders were disappointed and started to have short covering of USD immediately, driving USD rise a lot.
I believe traders have already predicted and short USD ahead of releasing of minutes; and, they short cover the USD afterwards. It perfectly demonstrates the famous Wall Street‘s buying strategy – “Buy on rumor, sell on fact”. Meantime, the minute also reflects that the officers of the Board won’t set the upper limit or target return for US bonds to secure the position of USD. It drives those “extreme” dovish party disappointed and shows Federal Reserve Board has no further measures on easing monetary policy. Thats why some may interpret as the start of hawk signal instead of dove.

  I agree the Federal Reserve Board intends to adopt more dovish approach to pave the way for adopting further easing monetary policy in future. Since the minute keeps on telling negative towards economy, it drove both DJ index and Nasdaq index drop simultaneously after hitting the record high. With the divergence works between USD and stock; USD index, therefore, increases drastically after releasing of minutes.
  Many has talked about the huge short covering of USD, which showed the signal of bouncing up after touching the bottom. Whilst some said this is merely a technical adjustment and will have further drop afterwards. I do think the probability of both scenarios are equal; yet I realize USD dose not have much room for further drop, expecting a strong supporting level around 91.90. Two focusing events may affect the trend of USD - i/ the economic platforms of democratic party proposed by US president candidates Joe Biden and Kamala Devi Harris; ii/ the announcement of Jackson Hole in the Central Bank annual meeting and the market expectation - the new and innovative strategy of easing monetary policy by Powell, the chairman of Federal Reserve Board. If it turns negative and has no new ideas, USD index will be expected to boost up again.
  Technically, USD has a strong resistance level at around 94, with 3 times strong selling signal recently, making USD index hard to have another breakthrough. It is estimated to be positive if USD index breaks the 94 level and takes this as the USD reference point.

France introduced new measures to fight the rapid resurgence of the coronavirus pandemic in major cities, adding to risks weighing on an already slowing economic recovery in Europe.To get more news about WikiFX, you can visit wikifx official website.
  The first significant tightening of restrictions on French daily life since the end of the lockdown in May includes closing bars at 10 p.m. in Paris and several other large urban centers. The tougher restrictions follow similar moves in the U.K., while Austria banned apres-ski partying for the upcoming winter season, as Europe reemerges at a hot spot for the disease.
  “If we don‘t take measures rapidly, we risk being in a critical situation in some regions in a few weeks,” Health Minister Olivier Veran said in Paris late Wednesday, insisting that the government isn’t considering another nationwide lockdown.
  France is the latest European country to change tack in the face of mounting infection rates as they try to avoid the widespread restrictions that tipped the continent into a deep recession earlier this year. U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson this week abandoned his appeal for Britons to return to offices as he warned of “many more deaths” unless people obey a raft of new restrictions.
The British government is due to set out a fresh round of policies to support jobs on Thursday after abandoning plans for a fall budget. A government official said Wednesday that now is not the right time to outline long-term strategy, a sign the Treasury is preparing for months of economic disruption.

  Austria sought to save its ski season by imposing a ban on partying off the slopes after lax controls at the Ischgl resort this spring sparked lawsuits against Chancellor Sebastian Kurzs government. Restaurants and bars will only be allowed to serve seated customers under the new rules.
  “Hundreds of thousands of jobs directly or indirectly depend on tourism,” Kurz said. “For all fans of winter sport, one thing is clear: there will be fun on the slopes, but without apres ski.”

  There are signs the prospect of harsher curbs has already hit confidence in France, which improved less than expected in September. While business leaders are more upbeat about recent activity, they are losing optimism about the outlook for their own companies and the entire services sector, national statistics agency Insee said.
  “Today‘s measures are an extra shock to confidence as it reminds consumers that it isn’t over,” said Julien Manceaux, an economist at ING. While some sectors could be hit, “its not a general shock.”

Chinese consumers are finally starting to spend again after the pandemic-induced slump, but the recovery is unbalanced and overly reliant on luxury goods, with poorer Chinese still cautious.To get more news about WikiFX, you can visit wikifx official website.
  Consumption has started to catch up to the much stronger rebound in industrial output, with retail sales growing in August for the first time this year. Spending on luxury goods, cars and electronics is leading the charge, rising faster than food, clothing and other essentials.Source: National Bureau of Statistics, China Passenger Car Association, Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau of Macau SAR.
  Note: All data shows % change from previous year*Feb. values show combined Jan.-Feb. data.
While the supply side of Chinas economy has shown resilience, a strong and broad rebound in spending is needed for a more meaningful economic recovery. Even though the virus is under control, income and job losses due to the pandemic have made poorer Chinese unwilling or unable to increase spending, keeping a lid on the rebound.
  “Higher-income households have probably built up savings, because of the forced reduction in consumption during lockdown, and could now be ready for a spending spree. It is lower-income households that face a longer slog of normalizing their finances,” He Wei, an analyst at Gavekal Dragonomics, said in a recent report.

  What Bloombergs Economists Say...
  “Consumer confidence appears to be coming back even without a vaccine. This is reflected in strong pickups in sales of non-essentials, such as cosmetics and jewelry, in recent months. Improved sentiment and spending at home in lieu of overseas trips should help support private consumption.”  Luxury spending in China will grow 20%-30% this year, according to a report from Boston Consulting Group, but much of that growth is going to come from consumers in the 50 largest and richest cities. People in the other 2,206 cities bought only a quarter of all luxury goods in April-July this year, and their spending was down 4% compared with 2019, according to the report.

Mazahem said he was saving numbers on a lottery app when he accidentally bought an extra lottery ticket after buying a $2 ticket for the June 9 Mega Millions game.He realized he had purchased another ticket with the same numbers and said he was 'bummed' but forgot about it until he logged onto the app. He had two $1 million winners.

Mazahem, 56, matched the five white balls drawn – 01-05-09-10-23 - twice. Each winning ticket was worth $1 million.“I went online and bought a ticket using numbers that are family birthdays,” said Mazahem. “I forgot to save the numbers as favorites in the app, so I went back in and set them up as favorites so I could easily play them in the future. What I didn’t realize, is that meant I would be buying a second ticket with the same numbers. Once I figured out I had bought two tickets with identical numbers, I was a little bummed but didn’t think much about it.

Mazahem had moved on and forgotten about the app. Until a few weeks ago.
