XL's Spreadsheet Fails to Addup

Economics / Recession 2008 - 2010 Sep 12, 2008 - 08:03 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Economics Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleXL, Britain's third largest tour operator went bust today leaving more than 90,000 holiday makers stranded across the globe and another 200,000 with advance bookings facing a loss. The company was forced to call in the administrators this morning after last minute financial backing talks failed.


As I warned in the article of 6th Sept and newsletter Credit Crisis Phase II - The Economic Crunch, the fallout from the derivatives deleveraging due to basically banking sector greed during the credit boom years has gradually traversed itself from the devastated financial sector towards the wider economy, no sector is being left untouched with the last sector to feel the pinch being the commodities that as little as a month ago were still in full boom mode, now on break of multiple chart triggers are feeling the full force of the global Deleveraging as warned of as early as March of this year DELEVERAGING- Gold and Commodities Teetering on the Brink of a Bear Market?

The gold market trend was warned of during June 2008 in the article -Nothing Sweet About Gold , The downtrend target of $800 has now been more than exceeded with crude oil collapsing in on itself towards $700 whilst those with heavy gold and precious metals exposure erroneous cry of market manipulation. The only true market manipulation being observed is the smack in your face bailout of Freddie Mac, which was only taken as last resort to prevent a collapse of the US financial system as the $1.7 trillion foreign holders of Fannie and Freddie debt panicked by selling out of their holdings, which would ripple right across the US and world corporate bond markets.

With Crude oil trading at $146, I warned of an imminent peak and trend to a target of $110, 04 July 2008 - Crude Oil Seeking Black Swan for Spike above $150 in Overbought State , subsequent analysis of gave a crude oil target of $80 - 16 July 2008 - Crude Oil Parabolic Move Driven by Inflation Hedging that Could Unwind

Today's news of XL's collapse is just the first sign of the recession that the UK looks set to enter into this year, already the forex traders have started to dump sterling as the worlds scared money rushes into the US Dollar which is now well into its bull market. The immediate target for sterling of $1.80, in the article of 17 Aug 2008 - The US Dollar Bull Market , as long since been left in the dust with sterling presently standing at $1.75. The euro target of 1.40 has also been reached. However the dollar at 80, remains on target for USD 90 by early 2009.
