Faith, Confidence, and Sound Money / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

A recent study about high, long-term government budget deficits published by the Washington Post indicates that such situations can be statistically linked to significantly lower future growth levels.

The National Bureau of Economic Research looked at 26 past examples of when the level of government was running over 90 percent for a five year period or longer.

How to Save the Euro / Currencies / Euro

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe management of the Eurozone debt crisis is dysfunctional. In our assessment, to save the Euro, policy makers must focus on competitiveness, common sense and communication. If policy makers strived to achieve just one of these principles, the Euro might outshine the U.S. dollar.

Strong U.S. Dollar Fallacy / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter a shocking upset in Greece’s parliamentary elections, the US dollar surged dramatically.  Soaring 5.4% in May alone, the world’s reserve currency won legions of fans among traders.  “King Dollar” was universally lauded, with everyone jumping on the strong-dollar bandwagon.  But this dazzling strength was merely a short-term phenomenon.  Zoom out a little, and today’s “strong dollar” is a fallacy.

What Is Money, The Greatest Invention Ever? / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday, we're accustomed to thinking of small greenish paper rectangles as the definition of money, and we think of the US government as the only source of money. To honestly discuss sound money, we need to realize where our current money customs came from.

At first, it was every man for himself. You ate or wore what you could pick or catch.

What's Next for the U.S. Dollar? QE3? / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe dismal U.S. jobs report for May, released last Friday, caused the price of gold to soar as the market appears to be pricing in an ever-greater chance of "QE3" - another round of quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve (Fed). But given that 10-year government debt is already down at 1.5%, the Fed may dive deeper into its toolbox in an effort to jumpstart the economy. Investors may want to consider taking advantage of the recent U.S. dollar rally to diversify out of the greenback ahead of QE3.

Reasons Why the U.S. Dollar is Really Rising / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: By all accounts, the U.S. dollar should be the functional equivalent of a Zimbabwean bill.

The Fed has pumped trillions into the worldwide financial system as part of misguided stimulus efforts that should be incredibly inflationary.

Yet, instead of a disastrous repeat of the Weimar Republic, the U.S. dollar has strengthened considerably.

China and Japan Abandon U.S. Dollar as a Means of Trade / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the next month China and Japan (China's main trading partner) will no longer use the U.S. dollar as the only currency in trade with each other. They will use the Yuan and the Yen directly with each other. This will see the dollar removed from a large chunk of the world's trade -in itself, not a very large percentage, but a significant one. It's the start of a trend that is set to grow. We've no doubt that China is tailoring its trade with all its trading partners to use the dollar only so far as it is required to deal with the U.S. and other dollar-dependent nations. Oil from Russia utilizes the Yuan and Rouble, and Australia has arranged a similar deal.

Euro to Surge / Currencies / Euro

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe fortunes of Europe’s beleaguered euro currency have been heavily influencing US markets.  Both stocks and commodities have been battered down recently by overwhelming euro bearishness.  This has proven seriously vexing for traders trying to focus on fundamentals.  But the extreme euro pessimism worrying everyone is actually very bullish.  This loathed, oversold currency is due to surge again.

Euro/Swiss Franc Exchange Rate Technical Update / Currencies / Euro

By: Dr_Volkmar_G_Hable

As most investor are aware the Swiss National Bank put a floor of 1.20 CHF into the exchange rate in September 2011 and has stated on a couple of occasions that it will do everything to defend that level. The move was necessary in order to stop the free fall of the Euro against the CHF. Speculators trying to push it since then have been quickly caught by the Swiss National Bank since then.

German Economic Locomotive Being Dragged Down, Euro's Cyclical Path / Currencies / Euro

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMore evidence of the German locomotive dragged down by the rest of the European continent as German manufacturing PMI dips to 45.0, its lowest figure since May 2009. The French version of manufacturing PMI hit 44, also a 36-month low. EURUSD hits a fresh low on the year at $1.25, down 3.3% year-to-date, and down 7.0% from its February highs. Our warning that the PMIs were a more effective leading indicator than the IFO or ZEW was first made in March, stating the reasons in more detail.

Fiat Currency Collapse Dynamics / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Alasdair_Macleod

The reason we accept paper money as a store of value is habit. This habit has its origins in history, when banks took our gold as deposit and issued paper receipts for it. The gold has gone, but the paper with its habitual value remains, and we accept it without question. The only backing is a vague government promise.

U.S. Dollar and Gold Have Eyes on Europe / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: J_W_Jones

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFriday saw heavy selling pressure coming into risk assets, specifically equities and oil. However, the real driving force behind the selling pressure is likely the result of several unrelated economic/geopolitical events. Clearly the unemployment report had an impact on price action, but strangely enough it would appear to those more in tune with reality that market participants want lower prices so that the next quantitative easing program can be initiated.

Is the US Killing the Euro? / Currencies / Euro

By: Dr_Volkmar_G_Hable

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 2004 for the first time it was reported that criminals were shunning US-Dollars in favor of Euros. Near Acapulco (Mexico) on Wednesday, December 8th, 2004, two armed men hijacked a bus threatening to blow it up with explosives unless their demands were met, one of which being a ransom payment of two million Euros (LA Times, 11th December 2004, p7). Obviously, the actions of these hijackers are deplorable, but it demonstrated a turning point for the Euro and  just how great the disdain for the United States Dollar has been. Even hijackers shun US Dollars. The reason for such behavior can be found in the chart below:

The Fed and their Influence on Gold and the US Dollar, Behind The Curve! / Currencies / US Dollar

By: UnpuncturedCycle

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI am not surprised to see that the Federal Reserve on Wednesday stood pat on interest rates and said economic growth will remain moderate over coming quarters and then only pick up gradually. The decision to make no changes was expected. Economists think the Fed will wait for more data before deciding how to proceed next. Recent data, such as the monthly jobs report from the Labor Department, point to a slowing pace of economic growth. In a statement, the Fed announced that it will leave its target range for its federal-funds rate unchanged at 0 to 0.25% — as it has for every meeting since December 2008. The central bank also did not change the forecast that “exceptionally low rates” will be here until late 2014. Richmond Fed President Jeffrey Lacker cast the lone dissent, continuing a trend at all three meetings this year. Lacker, one of the more hawkish regional Fed presidents, has argued against the 2014 rate forecast.

So Long to the U.S. Dollar / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Marin_Katusa

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarin Katusa, Casey Research writes: There's a major shift under way, one the US mainstream media has left largely untouched even though it will send the United States into an economic maelstrom and dramatically reduce the country's importance in the world: the demise of the US dollar as the world's reserve currency.

For decades the US dollar has been absolutely dominant in international trade, especially in the oil markets. This role has created immense demand for US dollars, and that international demand constitutes a huge part of the dollar's valuation. Not only did the global-currency role add massive value to the dollar, it also created an almost endless pool of demand for US Treasuries as countries around the world sought to maintain stores of petrodollars. The availability of all this credit, denominated in a dollar supported by nothing less than the entirety of global trade, enabled the American federal government to borrow without limit and spend with abandon.

Epic Money Battle Between U.S. Dollar and Gold / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe so-called Global Financial Crisis is a term so widely used that it has earned its own acronym of GFC. When first seen, it seemed like girl friend club or some such, since many friends use GF loosely to refer to sweethearts. The GFC is falsely named, since it is more accurately described as a global monetary war with the USGovt vigorously defending its franchise in the USDollar for crude oil and trade settlement, and for bank reserves management. Take either away, and the other departs quickly, leaving the United States vulnerable to a quick ticket to the Third World marred by price inflation and supply shortage, even isolation in ring fences. On its own devices, the US is in as bad shape as the worst of the PIGS nations. The USGovt debt is above 100% of GDP finally. The annual deficit of $1.5 trillion could not be financed in normal methods. So the USFed is the adopted buyer of last resort, purchasing over 80% of new and recycled US debt issuance. The Interest Rate Swap tool acts like a hydraulic howitzer, in pushing down the long-term interest rates by creating false artificial demand. Without the IRSwap contract, a Morgan Stanley specialty, the US interest rates would be 6% to 7% just like Spain and Italy. The USTreasury Bond is not a safe haven, but rather a place where Weimar printing press operations persist, where decisions like SWIFT code rules are enforced like a illicit weapon, where billboards are painted to attract embattled investors of impaired toxic sovereign bonds from Southern Europe to retreat to the supposed safe haven of USTBonds.

Natural Money / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Christopher_Quigley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Story of Robinson Crusoe and guest:

"If there were a monetary system on this island and I, as a shipwrecked traveller needed a
loan, I should have to apply to a money-lender for money to buy the things which you have
just lent me without interest. But a money-lender has not to worry about rats moths, rust
and roof-repairing, so I could not have taken up the position towards him that I have taken
up towards you. The loss inseparable from the ownership of goods is born, not by money-lenders, but by those who have to store the goods. The money-lender is free from such cares and is unmoved by the ingenious arguments that found the joints in your armour. You did not nail up your chest of buckskins when I refused to pay interest; the nature of your
capital made you willing to continue the negotiations. Not so the money-capitalist; he would
bang the door of his strong room before my face if I announced that I would pay no
interest. Yet I do not need the money itself, I need it only to buy buckskins."
