The American dollar is flatlined, but it could regain the bid tone ahead of tomorrow's FOCM rate decision, indicate the benchmark bond yield spreads. The US-German 10-year yield spread rose to 209.5 basis points yesterday; its highest level since April 12. Also, the 10-year US-UK yield spread rose to 118 basis points (bps); its highest level since Aug. 15. In both cases, the widening of the yield spread indicates good times ahead for the USD.
The sharp recovery in the dollar index (DXY) from the Nov. 27 low of 92.50 appears to have run out of steam near 94.00 levels, courtesy of the range bound action in the treasury yields. The 10-year yield has been restricted largely to a narrow range of 2.3 percent to 2.45 percent since late October. An upside break of the trading range may revive the interest in the greenback and could lift the DXY well above 94.00 levels.
Karen Jones, Head of FICC Technical Analysis at Commerzbank sees scope for a small rebound courtesy of current intraday Elliott wave count. GBP/USD has again eased back to its 20-day ma at 1.3347, which it is starting to erode. There remains an upside bias above last weeks low at 1.3320, current intraday Elliott wave counts imply that we should see a small rebound.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
