    the markets love to go against fundamental news.
    tokyo could be evacuated next year, but who cares.

    eurozone banks are kaput, but eurusd will rise above 1,40 soon

    if i do an OTC trade, interbank, does it get captured in those numbers? answer is no (ex-prop trader at large bank) , so do you guys agree that it's preposterous to even think of such a thing as a long/short ratio on forex?
