lastly a bit of Commentary from IFR dicuusinh overnight trade
BOSTON, Aug 5 (IFR) – Another overnight session of astronomical trading volumes of well over 300% of the market trailing average volumes changing hands. Buyers were out in force after the Chinese currency broke above the 7.0 level to the dollar. The 7.0 level was thought to be a line in the sand in a tacit agreement between the US and China for China to manage its currency. The break above is seen as potentially provoking a capital flight out of China’s markets/currency that if so is expected to precipitate an ongoing global flight to quality.
