The fallout continues from the Swiss National Bank’s decision to abandon its euro floor Thursday… Meanwhile, more evidence of deflation in the eurozone is bolstering expectations that the ECB will step up and announce a major bond-buying effort, precisely the euro-weakening project that put the SNB under pressure to change policy.

From the floor: Swiss roll over world marketsTradingFloor
The big story from the floor today is obviously the aftershock that has followed the Swiss National Bank's surprise decision to end its cap on the Swiss franc. According to Saxo Bank head of forex strategy John Hardy, traders seeking equilibrium might look to euro/Swiss franc parity as a starting point. Meanwhile, gold is surging on "safe haven" sentiment.

European FI Strategy: The elephant is finally movingNordea
Our last 2014 edition was called ”Volatility – Back for good” on the heels of the events in mid-October. That conjecture has been validated, in particular for the short end of the inflation market, and long nominal rates, and we expect realized volatility to be substantial. We see QE coming next Thursday, and expect a credible package from Draghi et. al. Short EUR rates, already down on liquidity expectations have got another push via today’s SNB-decision
