Angela Merkel has now been leading as chancellor since April 2000, which is a significant period of time, though not as long as Ben Bernanke’s chairmanship at the Federal Reserve. Bernanke will be leaving the Fed in January, and Janet Yellen is tipped to be the new Chairman. As Yellen’s policies lean towards favouring easing, some analysts predict that the Fed will decide not to taper QE this week after all. Another key theme to watch out for this year is Mark Carney’s recently appointed governorship at the Bank of England. So far it would seem that Carney is following a similar policy to the Fed by linking interest rates to unemployment. He stated that current rates will not be altered until unemployment falls below 7%, which analysts predict will not happen until 2016.
In the financial markets though, there remains confidence in the prospects of another emergency agreement, possibly minutes before the deadline. The Australian dollar currently presents as indifferent to the disappointing Final HSBC China Manufacturing PMI, reported at 02.45 BST today. The current-monthas reading checked in at 50.2, falling short of the initial estimate of 51.2 though marginally stronger than Augustas 50.1. Traders in the AUD/USD will want to compare that reading with the official Chinese PMI release due out at 02.00 BST tomorrow, with current expectations for improvement to 51.6 from Augustas 51.0. Currently the Australian dollar is changing hands at or about 0.9336, up 0.32 percent intraday. Levels of resistance today: 0.9351, 0.9378 and 0.9405.
