12:40 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY ran out of steam
FX Action: USD-JPY ran out of steam over 109.80 early, where talk of defense of 110.00 barrier options was heard (expiring Thursday). Downside progress was limited to the 109.50 region, though improved risk levels helped the pairing back over 109.65. As Wall Street losing its gains though, a return to session lows may be in the cards.
12:00 EDTU.S. equities extended opening gains
U.S. equities extended opening gains apparently right on schedule with the rebound in USD-JPY from 109.50 to 109.70, and European stocks padded gains as well into quarter-end. The latest weaker rounds of home price and Chicago ISM reports were underwhelming, but only caused a temporary hiccup. Meanwhile ECB Q-easing hopes on Thursday and eBay's gamble to free its outperforming PayPal unit appear to be sufficient bullish compensation. The major U.S. indices are about 0.25-0.35% firmer, while the Euro Stoxx 50 is 1.4% higher. Move Inc. also rallied 37% after a bid from News Corp, while hopes remain that upcoming Q3 earnings will help prop up equity holdings as well. As a result, the VIX equity volatility index has fallen back 5% to a 15.18 low compared to earlier highs of 16.41, having briefly trespassed above 17.0 yesterday.
