Washington coach Ron Rivera spoke last week about quarterback Dwayne Haskins having a future in the organization despite being benched just four games into this coaching regime, but few executives around the NFL are buying it. The situation between the quarterback, who was drafted 15th overall just 16 months ago, and Rivera’s staff is already fairly toxic, and multiple sources within the organization believe a trade by the end of the month is the most likely outcome.

Some rival executives have already begun looking at film of the former Ohio State star, anticipating him being moved in the coming weeks, with Kyle Allen — who has deep ties to this coaching staff — taking over as starter, veteran Alex Smith now the No. 2 quarterback and Haskins demoted all the way to third string.

Several sources close to Haskins have advised him that a trade would be far and away the best outcome possible, ideally to a solid franchise with an experienced veteran QB the 23-year-old could learn from. Haskins was not drafted by this regime, which was not high on him coming out of college. He is not a fit in their system, and his personality has rubbed them the wrong way since early on. Sources say with almost no practice time now and likely to be a healthy scratch many weeks, it’s difficult for Haskins to envision a future for himself in Washington, where his development has never felt like a priority dating back to last season, when soon-to-be-fired coach Jay Gruden threw him into regular season games before many believed he was ready. 

Numerous sources who have been in contact with Washington staff members told me that there was a strong perception that Haskins was not a good fit early on, and that he was only a starter because he was a favorite of owner Daniel Snyder, whose children went to school with Haskins.

“What they’ll tell you in that building is that he is a project who was drafted by the owner and his son,” said one league source who has talked to numerous Washington staff members. “That’s the bottom line there. Allen is their guy. They think he fits their system. They didn’t really want anything to do with Haskins from the beginning.”

The Cardinals traded quarterback Josh Rosen for a second-round pick in 2019 just one year after selecting him 10th overall, and numerous Washington team sources believe a change of scenery is in order here as well, although you won’t hear that sentiment expressed publicly. Getting solid trade compensation will be difficult given how the team has handled this situation, but keeping him around past the trade deadline and allowing this to fester is far from ideal.

NZD/USD eases from 2 1/2-week highs after PBOC's move

NZD/USD eases from 2 1/2-week highs after PBOC’s move

Home  »  Currency News   »   Forex Market: NZD/USD eases from 2 1/2-week highs affected by PBOC’s policy move, US stimulus talks face resistance

NZD/USD eased from last Friday’s 2 1/2-week high in Asian trade on Monday, as the offshore Chinese yuan depreciated following an announcement by the People’s Bank of China that the reserve requirement ratio for financial institutions for foreign exchange forwards trading would be reduced.

Analysts suggest that such a move aims to achieve a lower exchange rate of the Chinese currency.

“Our interpretation is that removing the reserve requirement is intended to encourage firms to hedge in order to manage currency risk,” Khoon Goh, head of Asia Research at Australia and New Zealand Banking Corp, said.

“It also enhances the foreign exchange market structure by making it easier for foreign investors to hedge their onshore portfolio investments.”

Meanwhile, investor risk appetite cooled as negotiations over a US fiscal stimulus package faced resistance. US President Trump on Friday proposed a $1.8 trillion coronavirus aid package, which moved closer to the $2.2 trillion offer by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Yet, Trump’s proposal faced criticism from several Republican representatives in the Senate, who expressed concerns about rising US debt. They were also concerned a deal on stimulus could cost Republicans support in the presidential election in November.

“Over the past few days, the markets seem to assume Biden will win the election. Trump seems desperate to get a deal but his comments are getting treated like a noise,” Yusuke Okada, manager of Forex at Mitsubishi Trust Bank, said.

“But I do think we could see a return of political uncertainties by the election. Markets seem to have priced in only the good news.”

In addition, continuing expectations of negative interest rates in New Zealand after dovish remarks by RBNZ officials last week kept the kiwi dollar under some pressure.

As of 8:11 GMT on Monday NZD/USD was inching down 0.08% to trade at 0.6662, after earlier touching an intraday high of 0.6671, or a level not far from last Friday’s 2 1/2-week high of 0.6673. The pair has risen 0.76% so far in October, following a 1.80% slump in September, its first monthly loss since March.

In terms of macro data, no relevant reports are scheduled for release on Monday. US markets are to remain closed for the Columbus Day national holiday.

The spread between 1-year New Zealand and 1-year US bond yields, which reflects the flow of funds in a short term, equaled 5.4 basis points (0.054%) as of 6:15 GMT on Monday, or unchanged compared to October 9th.

Ethereum Active Addresses Decline is Good News for Gas Prices

Ethereum Active Addresses Decline is Good News for Gas Prices

On-chain analytics provider Santiment has reported that there has been a decline in unique addresses interacting on the Ethereum network, particularly since mid-September. Both August and September witnessed spikes in address activity, primarily driven by new DeFi yield farming opportunities from the likes of Uniswap.

🤔 $ETH‘s daily active address metric is still revealing that there is still plenty to be desired since its peak in late July. There has been a decline in unique addresses interacting on the #Ethereum network, particularly since September 17th. https://t.co/MA6YkdGYlz pic.twitter.com/6FfOaVjMBY

— Santiment (@santimentfeed) October 11, 2020

As DeFi markets have started to cool off, the impact on Ethereum usage can clearly be seen. Total value locked across all DeFi platforms remains high at almost $11 billion but the food farming frenzy and gas-guzzling yield hopping appears to have abated.

With lower activity on ETH addresses, demand for network usage has declined and that is good news for gas prices.

According to bitinfocharts.com, ETH gas prices have plummeted 91% since their all-time high on September 2. The date and resultant gas spike can be correlated to the SushiSwap frenzy which resulted in over a billion dollars in collateral being moved from Uniswap to the DeFi fork.

The second spike came on Sept. 17 when Uniswap launched its four ETH liquidity pools and UNI mining incentives, along with that huge airdrop. Both times, average transaction fees spiked to double digits and those wanting to rush transactions through were forking out as much as $50 for the privilege.

Today, average transaction prices have fallen back to almost normality at $1.33, roughly where they were in late July before the DeFi food frenzy took off.

ETH Gas Station reports the standard gas price being at an acceptable 40 gwei with high-speed transactions for 50 gwei. Uniswap is still the largest consumer of gas with $12.7 million processed over the past 30 days.

Prices for the asset itself have been bullish over the weekend with ETH topping out at $377 according to Tradingview.com. Ethereum gained 12% since its low last week of $335 and has returned to prices last seen over three weeks ago.

Logan Han, a leading trader on Binance, predicted that Ethereum prices will continue to climb in the short term and surpass its all-time high in 2021.

If current levels turn to support, ETH could quite easily reach $400 again very quickly. The primary catalyst for any major moves this year will be the mainnet launch of Beacon Chain which, according to developers, is not that far away now.
