Emerging market pressure has ramped up the past few days, with currencies like the Argentinian Peso and Russian Ruble coming under pressure. As distant risk-related cousins, the commodity currencies, the Australian and New Zealand Dollars, are under significant pressure. The AUDUSD and GBPAUD trades covered earlier this week continue to evolve favorably.
