China Invests Some Pocket-Change


  Portugal Flag

I am not sure what investors were expecting but the relatively small purchase of Portuguese debt being purchased by the Chinese ($5B) was not really enough to shift investor sentiment much in the Eurozone. However, I think this is a good sign. The Chinese sovereign funds are not like the US Fed and this may just be the start of a larger commitment to European stability. I would assume that China sees its participation in the Eurozone right now as very much in its best interest and ultimately that is going to be good for the Euro.

In light trading before the holiday break, the EUR/USD is down again but not below support. We are watching the 200 period MA for much the same reasons most analysts are - self fulfilling prophecy. A bounce at this level seems likely but is not expected until after the break. Most market action is probably done for the week. 

Reminder: We won't be hosting Ask the Expert tomorrow or Monday. Have a great weekend and a lovely holiday.
