US Dollar Breakdown on Fed Was Much Worse Than It Looks / Currencies / US Dollar

By: The_Gold_Report

Technical analyst Clive Maund explains why the dollar breakdown after the Fed's rate announcement is good news for precious metals.

The Fed statement that it won't be raising rates again this year had a dramatic effect on both the dollar and the precious metals sector. The dollar had been struggling to make further progress for some time and the Fed statement kicked the crutches out from under it, and it broke sharply lower, as we can see on its latest 1-year chart below. It broke below its 200-day moving average, the 1st time it has been below it for almost a year, and it also broke it down below its uptrend. This was a development made all the more serious and decisive by the fact that it is currently tightly bunched with its moving averages, which means that it is at a key inflexion point—it could have broken either way, but the Fed has decided its direction with its stated policy not to raise rates this year.

March 2019 Cryptocurrency Technical Analysis / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Umer_Mahmood

Although cryptocurrencies lost significant value during 2018, most of the major tokens had a decent performance so far in 2019. Today we’ll look at Bitcoin, Ether, and Litecoin, in order to help you understand the price action context and potentially find some good trading opportunities.

BTCUSD (Coinbase chart)

Those of you familiar with online trading on cryptocurrencies, already know that Bitcoin started to edge higher since December 15th. Widely known as the “Santa rally”, this seasonal occurrence proved to be right for the major cryptocurrency.

Argentina's Peso, Nothing But Trouble / Currencies / Argentina

By: Steve_H_Hanke

This week, Argentina released its February inflation statistics. Inflation spiked, again. Indeed, the official annual inflation rate jumped to 51.3%/yr.

While this spike caught most observers off balance, it didn’t surprise me. Each day, I accurately measure Argentina’s inflation using high-frequency data and Purchasing Power Parity theory. By my measure, Argentina’s annual inflation rate is 100%/yr (see the accompanying chart). That’s nearly double the official rate reported for the end of February.

Gold – US Dollar vs US Dollar Index / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Kelsey_Williams

When it comes to analysis of gold, the U.S. Dollar Index finds nearly universal acceptance. Or rather, when most analysts refer to comparison/correlation of the U.S. dollar to gold, they usually illustrate their point with a chart of the U.S. dollar index.

While they won’t say it straight out, most of them see the U.S. Dollar Index as a proxy for the U.S. dollar. But, is it? From Wikipedia…

“The U.S. Dollar Index (USDX, DXY, DX) is an index (or measure) of the value of the United States dollar relative to a basket of foreign currencies, often referred to as a basket of U.S. trade partners’ currencies. The Index goes up when the U.S. dollar gains “strength” (value) when compared to other currencies.”

The “basket of foreign currencies” used are: Euro, Japanese yen, Pound sterling, Canadian dollar, Swedish krona, Swiss franc.

Is Britain At The Edge Of A Political Cliff? / Currencies / British Pound

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Recent news that Theresa May was unable to convince members of Parliament to even consider her current deal as well as the future political and societal consequences of any failure to move ahead with an orderly Brexit deal.  The question before traders and investors is how will this reflect in the global markets and how will currencies react to this new?

The GBP (British Pound) appears to be poised to a breakdown move aligning with our Fibonacci Arc structures.  These arc structures help us to understand where “inflection points” are likely in the markets and where bigger moves may initiate.  The current Arc level, near current price, is indicating that any failure of an upside move will likely prompt a downside move to near 0.739 – or lower.

Such as the money worthiness of gold compared to Bitcoin. Or the ongoing gold repatriation trend as Romania recently joined the fray. What kind of learnings can the precious metals investors draw here?

Consequences of US Dollar Lost Global Reserve Status / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Jim_Willie_CB

The Gold suppression game appears finally to be coming to an end. A Perfect Storm is hitting the Gold market, with an internal factor (QE), an external factor (SGE), and a systemic factor (Basel). All three forces are positive in releasing Gold from the corrupt clutches of the Anglo-American banker organization. They have been willing to destroy the global financial structure and many national economies, in order not just to maintain the political power, but also to continue the privilege of granting themselves $trillion free loans. In the last ten years since the Lehman Brothers failure, all systems have undergone the same reckless treatment that the mortgage bonds endured. They saw corrupted underwriting, corrupted title database, rigged market pricing, and corrupted demand functions. Slowly the realization is coming to the fore, stated by a few astute analysts. In the last decade, the US-UK banksters have created the USTreasury bond as the global subprime bond. This is the result of astounding persistent magnificent QE abuse and hidden corruption. The so-called financial stimulus is actually hyper monetary inflation, which has destroyed the bond market.

Brexit Does Not Stop Bitcoin’s Growth in the UK / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Submissions

The only thing that is certain in the UK right now is uncertainty, and this is causing fluctuations in the stock markets, as the British public awaits the ‘deal or no deal’ Brexit outcome with bated breath.

Despite the tumultuous and unprecedented period of change we are in, the value of cryptocurrency has not stopped growing. From Bitcoin to Ethereum and countless other cryptocurrencies that are now available (well over 1,000, and new ones being created all the time) the cryptocurrency market continues to grow, comparatively unhindered by current ructions in the Eurozone.

While many businesses keep their powder dry and await the Brexit outcome, cryptocurrency and blockchain start-ups achieved record breaking growth in 2018. The UK is currently dominating growth in tech start-ups across Europe, with £2.29 billion in total venture capital, exceeding that of Germany, which had £1.38 billion, and France, which had £1.03 billion.

Zimbabwe Introduces A New Currency For Maxi-Devaluation / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Steve_H_Hanke

Until February 20th, Zimbabwe produced a quasi-currency. It was dubbed a “Zollar.” On the 20th, the quasi-currency became Zimbabwe’s official currency. This new currency is called RTGS dollars and consists of bond notes and RTGS (electronic money).

The RTGS dollars possess legal tender status and will serve as the unit of account for the government’s books. The official exchange rate for Zollar quasi-currency had been set at a one-to-one rate with the U.S. dollar. But now, the RTGS dollar will trade at a managed floating exchange rate. The rate today is 2.50 per U.S. dollar, not par, as it used to be. So, Zimbabwe’s official exchange rate has experienced a maxi-devaluation of 60%.

Bitcoins And Bolivars: Two Hot Potatoes / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Steve_H_Hanke

It was just a little more than a decade ago when “Satoshi Nakamoto” ushered in what has become the era of private cryptocurrencies. Nakamoto’s vision was clearly laid out in a whitepaper: “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Cash System.”

Nakamoto’s bitcoin money machine—or as Larry White refers to it: a private “algorithmic central bank”—was going to wipe out the inflation risk and the accompanying loss of purchasing power that plague fiat monies issued by government-controlled central banks. Alas, bitcoin’s source code that predetermines its supply is set on a fixed-quantity path that is unresponsive to changes in demand. In consequence, bitcoin inhabits a demand-supply space in which supply is almost perfectly inelastic. So, to reach a demand-supply equilibrium, all the adjustment falls on the back of bitcoin’s price (read: purchasing power). As a result, bitcoin’s price is inherently volatile and unstable. Indeed, small changes in demand in the face of an inelastic supply create a price volatility storm. Furthermore, unless more demand can be attracted to bitcoin, there is no reason why its price should trend upwards, as many have been led to believe. If speculation wanes, bitcoin’s price could trend downwards. Indeed, bitcoin’s design guarantees volatility, which inhibits its widespread use. In short, it is very risky to hold bitcoins or accept them for deferred payments.

The Coming Bitcoin Ambush / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: readtheticker

If you are accurate drawing your trading channels you will see this ambush setup on bitcoin.

All charts of bitcoin are in USD terms.

The big boys (and some late to the party) want to accumulate hard to get coins, therefore the only way they can do this is scare them out of the weak hand wallets. Those who brought above $1000 on the way up to $20000. Of course (and lets hope for the bulls) the big boys do not want to break the chart completely and force a panic sell off beyond critical levels of massive support (say BTC $1000 USD).

EURO Crisis Set to Intensify: US Dollar Breakout Higher / Currencies / Euro

By: FXCOT

Major U.S. indexes have crossed or are nearing their 200-day moving averages and the number of stocks setting 52-week highs is on the rise, among other indicators favored by portfolio managers and investment gurus trying to divine the market’s next move. The rally is widely seen as resulting from a more cautious rate-increase outlook from the Federal Reserve and continuing faith in the U.S. economy. But those factors haven’t quelled concerns about U.S.-China trade tensions and a potential slowdown in corporate earnings that would spell trouble for the nearly decade-old bull market.

The SPX after breaking down into the end of 2018 has now regained poise. The rally of the lows has been broad based as shown below.

Bitcoin Price Analysis and Trend Forecast 2019 / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Nadeem_Walayat

2018 was the year the bitcoin crypto bubble burst that witnessed the bitcoin price first collapse to a floor of $6000, from which each attempted bounce failed to generate any follow through, and the longer the failure for a breakout higher continued then the greater the probability that the price would eventually break lower, below the $6000 floor. Which is what transpired during November that saw Bitcoin plunge to a new low of $3,100 by Mid December, a far cry from the fantasy of first revisiting $20k and then $50k that a naive 'manipulated' Bitcoin community had pinned their hopes and dreams on whilst immersed in an endless feedback loop of perma bull bitcoin pump mania commentary, that was the mainstay of the internet during 2018, whilst the manipulators were dumping their holdings onto the naive players. Just like what the pump and dumpers have been doing with penny stocks for over 100 years!

The Alternative Solution to Bitcoin! / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Submissions

Dear Reader,

eBook - The Alternative Solution to Bitcoin!

Oh dear, it’s not looking good for the Bitcoin crowd. After the savage 66% correction from the $19,891 highs of December 2017 to the February low at $6,651, they were hoping the damage was done.

They’d expected the buyers to rush in and hoover up Bitcoins and any other cryptos at knockdown prices... and send the price screaming higher.
