actually it has been multiples worse lately for the wild swings.  look at it over a longer time horizon and divide one by the other.

The Mandarin calculus of China. 

Beyond raising in the short term is the looming specter of inflation echoing around the world. It's getting hard to deny that it's already here including the peculiar situation in the US where deflationary forces are canceling out inflation in the numbers, but bludgeoning purchasing power harder than simple inflation (houses and incomes ain't rising).

So anyone who's done it...what's it cost to be able to navigate these trades?

Is it $100K for a Bloomie terminal and...more too?

An easy trade to pull off with IB or any other broker than lets you trade spot forex and ES future contracts simultaneously. A $10k USD balance is more than enough to handle the margin requirements for a single ES contract and the matching/offsetting AUDJPY.

Screw the compression trade.  Just short /ES as AUD/JPY would follow any move down, but tends to lag on the upside.
