Daily monitor 18.02.2013 Monday

2013. febr. 18.

Market news:
Most Asian stocks are spotted higher during Monday’s session, as Japanese shares are surging after G20 nations refrained from overt punishment of Japan regarding the weaker Yen.
The G20 meetings concluded this weekend and officials indicated they will allow the Yen to continue sliding as long as Japanese officials and policymakers do not make public statements to push the currency lower. This opens the door for Japan to continue stimulating it's economy, and perhaps engage in asset-buying sooner-than-expected.
Earlier this year, the Bank of Japan said it would engage in open-ended asset-buying, but the central bank disappointed the markets by delaying the start of that effort until 2014.
The EUR is trading mixed against the major currencies this morning and European indexes opened slightly in the red.
With today's light economic calendar and US banks being closed, any further news coming from the G20 meeting could quickly change the market's direction. Also, keep an ear out on Draghi's (ECB) speech scheduled for 15:30 GMT today.

Intraday options that are due to expire today at 15:00 GMT.

EUR/USD – 1.3375, 1.3400
USD/JPY – 93.25, 94.00
AUD/JPY – 1.0300
GBP/USD – 1.5600

Important economic data scheduled for today:

No major economic data is scheduled to be released today, and in observance of President’s Day, US banks will be closed.
