Daily Commentary 31/03/2016

Central Bank influence remains the prime driver in markets, as equities continue to surge, bonds rally and the Dollar weakens. The ADP jobs reported a steady growth in jobs, while German inflation confirmed anaemic growth and Japanese Industrial Production severely contracted. Equity markets rallied strongly, on the back of Yellen confirming extended QE, while the prospect of interest rate rises will be inhibited. The Dollar went south, with the EUR surging to 1.1330, while the GBP broke above 1.4400. Commodities have been enhanced by the weakening reserve and boosting the associated currencies. The KIWI rallied strongly to breach 0.6900, while the AUD pushed up to trade 0.7650, reflecting the Feds influence rather than domestic economic data.
