Daily Trading Stance Monday, November 30, 2009

Theme Comment
The market could be back in risk-mode after Dubai World debt moratorium and thin Thanksgiving volume.
Stock market futures are higher and commodities are also crawling back. We therefore have a “buy-on-dips” stance
We don’t have too many potential market moving data releases today. Watch out for Chicago PMI which is usually a
fairly good indicator of how tomorrow’s ISM Manufacturing will come out.

EURUSD Curve is likely to ease further from Friday’s levels as spot continues to push higher in the
face weaker dollar. Noted 3mth 1.44 buyers in the brokers on Friday.
USDJPY Yen vols comes off from the highs we saw last week but with spot pushing lower in Asia
they seem to have found a base for now. A break under 8600 should lift front end higher.

as spot moves towards 9200 levels. Front end should hold until after RBA and nonfarm.
