August 25, 2015
10:55 EDTEuro$ interest rate futures skidded lower
Euro$ interest rate futures skidded lower on the snap-back rebound in equities, which exorcized some of the risk premium in the short-dated rate contracts with stocks up 2.6-2.8% after yesterday's plunge. That's sent the December 2015 contract 2-ticks lower near 99.565 (0.435% implied rate) vs highs of 99.59 (0.410%) Monday. The deferred contracts are 2-13 ticks lower out the curve, as a September rate hike is still in play and the trajectory adjusted accordingly.

10:45 EDTFX Action: USD-CAD rallied back to near trend highs
FX Action: USD-CAD rallied back to near trend highs, topping over 1.3270, as gold and oil prices retreat once more. WTI crude is heading back down into the $39/bbl level, after the modest rally earlier ran out of steam ahead of $39.90. Gold meanwhile has fallen back 2%. The risk taking backdrop, while much improved from Monday, is not as strong as U.S. equity futures indicated ahead of the Wall Street open, which has likely weighed some on the CAD as well.
