02:20 EDTFX Update: USD-JPY recovered from yesterday's mini-crash
FX Update: USD-JPY recovered from yesterday's mini-crash that was seen after the London close and saw the pair hit a low of 101.78 following a 50 pip crash. The talk was of a carry trade unwind in a risk-off day, reportedly run through a large sell trade in yen futures. Sell-stops were tripped below the prior session low of 102.20. Swings like this used to be common place before the central banks squashed volatility, and the mere fact that the move caused a stir is an indictment of current policy-engineered complacency. USD-JPY is now back in the mid-102s. Elsewhere, AUD-USD was hit to a two-month of 0.9263 following the Australian employment report, which saw the headline come in at -0.3k versus the expected 13.2k gain, while the unemployment rate jumped to 6.4% from 6.0% (median forecast was for unchanged), which is the highest jobless rate since 2002. EUR-USD and other dollar-European pairings were steady. Stock markets remain on a back foot on Ukraine tensions, with the MSCI Asia-Pacific index showing a 0.4% decline and looks set to post its lowest close in six weeks.

13:15 EDTEuro$ interest options: hefty bearish put positioning
Euro$ interest options: hefty bearish put positioning took the form of a purchase of 30k in June 87/90 put spreads on the short-dated rate futures, which remain fairly buoyant despite the opening rebound in stocks. Risk aversion remains evident in gold and yen carry trade unwinds, which helped drive 2-year note yields down to over 2-week lows of 0.448% today as well.

11:15 EDTFX Action: USD-CAD has continued to ebb
FX Action: USD-CAD has continued to ebb, with stops helping fuel the move lower following the dip through 1.0950. Low so far is 1.0928. Support is marked by yesterday's low at 1.0904. The pair logged a two-month peak at 1.0986 earlier before a strong export figure in Canada's July trade report caught the interbank trader and speculative with a fairly extreme net long position, prompting CAD short covering. There has also been talk of good selling interest into 1.1000.

10:35 EDTEuro$ interest rate options: bearish call selling
Euro$ interest rate options: bearish call selling included the sale of 40k in 97 calls on March 2015s, though similar to a trade on Monday this is suspected to be a position roll down. There was also a bullish sale of 15k in put 1x2s on Short December contracts on top of 20k in that position sold earlier in the week. And 2k in June 88/91 put 1x2s were purchased. The September contract is flat at 99.765, but the deferreds are 1-3 ticks higher in response to the opening declines in stocks, which have since rebounded.
