Large Forex Speculators Cut US Dollar Bullish Bets to 7-month Low / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Submissions

CountingPips writes: The weekly Commitments of Traders (COT) report, not published for close to a month due to the partial US government shutdown, was released on Friday by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and showed that large futures traders & speculators continued to decrease their bullish bets of the US dollar for a third week in a row on October 1st.

Non-commercial large futures traders, including hedge funds and large International Monetary Market speculators, cut their overall US dollar long positions to a total of $692.8 million as of Tuesday October 1st. This was a decline of $-2.89 billion from the total long position of $3.58 billion that was registered on September 24th, according to data from Reuters that calculates this amount by the total of US dollar contracts against the combined contracts of the euro, British pound, Japanese yen, Australian dollar, Canadian dollar and the Swiss franc.

GBP's Outlook Still Bright, but Beware Lurking Gremlins / Currencies / British Pound

By: Submissions

Justin Pugsley writes: Amongst a number of weaknesses such as a huge current account deficit the UK also has an inflation problem, which will eventually take its toll on GBP. For the time being at least a robust real estate market and recovering economy will be strongly supportive of Sterling.

The UK has long had an inflation prone economy. Today is no different. Consider the UK has an inflation rate of 2.7%. That's low by historical standards, but very high compared with its trading partners. And relative is important. Because in the US it is 1.5%, the Eurozone 1.1% and Japan 0.8%. That means GBP is losing its purchasing power at a faster rate than most of its trading partners meaning that in the long run it is a negative for the UK currency.

How Long Until the U.S. Dollar Loses Its Reserve Currency Status? / Currencies / US Dollar

Mohammad Zulfiqar writes: As Congress has come to a decision about the debt ceiling and kicked the can a few months down the road, I hear a significant amount of noise about the U.S. dollar losing its reserve currency status.

With this, I ask: could this really happen anytime soon?

EUR/USD: Looking For Bullish Opportunities Within Accelerating Price / Currencies / Euro

By: Gregor_Horvat

EUR/USD accelerated to the upside in the last few weeks and touched 1.3700 few days back which means that pair is trading extremely close to January high so it seems that rally from 2012 low is still unfolding. We are tracking an updated which shows a completed running triangle in wave (B) followed by a recent push out of the pattern that is now pointing higher, for a five wave rise in wave (C) towards and above 1.4000.

GBPUSD Looking Bearish Against 1.6260 Elliott Wave Forecast / Currencies / British Pound

By: Gregor_Horvat

GBPUSD is very slow and choppy above 1.5900 level so we think that move from the latest low is corrective, therefore we think that recovery is temporary. In fact we labeled a decline from 1.6260 with five waves down which is evidence of a bearish price action, marked as wave (a) or (i). In both cases we expect a third leg lower once corrective wave (b) or (ii) will complete a retracement. Ideally this will occur somewhere between 38.2-61.8% retracement area compared to previous decline. In that region we also have a parallel trend line connected from 1.6161 swing that could also react as a resistance level. With that said traders should be aware of a bearish waves in the next few days. This view remains valid as long as price trades beneath 1.6260 high.

How Much Longer Will the Dollar be the Reserve Currency? / Currencies / US Dollar

By: MISES

Patrick Barron writes: We use the term “reserve currency” when referring to the common use of the dollar by other countries when settling their international trade accounts. For example, if Canada buys goods from China, it may pay China in US dollars rather than Canadian dollars, and vice versa. However, the foundation from which the term originated no longer exists, and today the dollar is called a “reserve currency” simply because foreign countries hold it in great quantity to facilitate trade.

Rally For USD/JPY While 10 Year US Treasuries Move Lower / Currencies / Japanese Yen

By: Gregor_Horvat

US Bonds were trading lower in the last two sessions after the minutes of the Federal Reserve showed that most policymakers still favor a tapering program this year. But sell-off on bonds came on news that QE could end in mid-2014. USD was firstly down on the news, but then it recovered during the Asian trading hour. However, EUR/USD is again finding some bid, so no real direction at the moment. Meanwhile the S&P Futures are rallying.

Fiat Paper Currencies are NOT Gold! / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: DeviantInvestor

Paper currencies seem normal. They seem natural. We are told they are necessary. Paper currencies with no intrinsic value are used everywhere - we pretend they are valuable. If we don't look closely, or remember the world of 60 years ago, they seem like a good idea.

Monopoly money. Euros. Dollars. What is the essential difference? Paper, with no intrinsic value, is accepted only because we have confidence in the issuer of the currency and/or because we have no other choice. Monopoly money can buy hotels on Park Place. Unbacked paper dollars can buy hotels in Manhattan. The hundreds of unbacked paper currencies that have become worthless during the last century can buy NOTHING.

Japanese Yen USD Elliott Wave Forecast : Bullish Reversal Could Be Near By / Currencies / Japanese Yen

By: Gregor_Horvat

USDJPY did not accelerate to the upside yet, so it seems that we will have to wait on a bullish price action a little longer, As such, we adjusted the wave count and suspect that pair is in final stages of a wave (4) now. We however are still observing a triangle that should be near completion. We see wave E) down that could look for a bottom around 97.00 area from where we could reverse up in wave (5). An impulsive rally from current zone would be a confirmation for a new bullish period on USDJPY.

Room For More U.S. Dollar Weakness After The Government Shutdown / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Gregor_Horvat

USD is sharply down across the board after the US government shutdown. Some would think that US stocks futures will turn lower, but we in fact can see higher prices since the news came out. However, we may see a risk aversion (lower stocks) if government will be shutdown for too long, lets say around 3 weeks. In the past the longest close was 21 days, back in 1995 (source Wikipedia). The longer the shutdown will last, more nervous investors will become.

EURUSD: Bullish Contracting Triangle In Progress / Currencies / Euro

By: Gregor_Horvat

EURUSD accelerated to the upside in the last few hours from the lower side of a trading range. As such, with the latest time we see triangle as the best labeling in wave four, but we still need wave (e) before pattern is complete. Ideal support zone for end of wave (e) comes in at 1.3490-1.3510 region. If we are correct then we will see more impulsive ride on Euro in this week.

China Yaun, Renminbi: Soon to Be a World Reserve Currency? / Currencies / China Currency Yuan

By: John_Mauldin

I get the question all the time: when will the Chinese renminbi (RMB) replace the US dollar as the major world reserve currency? The assumption behind such questions is almost always that the coming crisis in US entitlement programs will force the Fed to monetize even more debt, thereby killing the dollar. Or some derivative line of that thought. Contrary to the thinking of fretful dollar skeptics, my firm belief is that the US dollar is going to become even stronger and will at some point actually deserve to be the reserve currency of choice rather than merely the prettiest girl in the ugly contest – the last currency standing, so to speak.

USD-CHF Bearish Waves Are Pointing Towards 0.9050 / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: Gregor_Horvat

USDCHF is showing some nice sharp downside price action after recent sharp fall to 0.9100 area which appears to be wave three of three of an impulsive structure. If that's the case then we know that market will move even lower in sessions ahead but after a completed fourth wave pull-back that is now in progress. Ideally pair will test 0.9150 area before downtrend resumes. Generally speaking trend is clearly bearish on the 4h time frame posted below and it will stay down as long as 0.9228 level is not breached because we know that wave four must not trade into a temerity of a wave one.

U.S. Dollar Still Hanging on the Fiat Cliff / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Joseph_Russo

Arguably, throughout the ages, money and the immense power it manifests, is the most potent driver of systemic corruption.

Further to such argument, it is self-evident that high-level branches of modern-day governments and their attendant institutions alongside private foundations and transnational corporate alliances have been wholly subject to such corruption for centuries.

GBP-USD: When Support Line Becomes A Resistance Line / Currencies / British Pound

By: Gregor_Horvat

A decline on GBPUSD from 2008 peak to 2009 low was in five waves, which in Elliott Wave theory indicates a direction of a larger trend. This is called an impulse wave, and once this leg is complete you will see a reversal in price, against the trend, normally into a slow, choppy and overlapping price action which is personality of a correction.

British Pound Bearish Reversal Forecast / Currencies / British Pound

By: Gregor_Horvat

Pound (Forex: GBPUSD) is in bullish mode and reached our projected zone for this week; 1.5800-1.5900 which is actually a very important resistance zone in combination with the wave principle and Fibonacci levels. As you can see on the chart we are tracking a huge wedge pattern called an ending diagonal which usually predicts a very strong reversal. With that said, we are keeping an eye on potential sell-off on this pair from current resistance zone. This sell-off can happen soon if we consider that prices are in late stages of wave 5) now, testing 61.8% Fibonacci projection compare to wave 3) and also approaching 161.8 % extension of wave 4).
