Japanese Yen Big Surprise / Currencies / Japanese Yen

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs a followup to our recent long term report on the Japan Nikkei equity index we present our a long term analysis on the JPYUSD. The Yen is a western economy currency which generally follows the CHFUSD long term currency cycle model, as opposed to commodity sensitive currencies like the AUDUSD, CADUSD and ZARUSD. The CHFUSD model displays Cyclical tops and bottoms every 16-17 years, with the bottoms occurring only 6-7 years after the tops. The long term charts of the JPYUSD display this currency cycle quite well with a slight variation at the lows.

The Death of the "Dollar Carry Trade" / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: By maintaining a Federal Funds rate below the 0.25% level - and injecting $600 billion into the banking system through a second round of quantitative easing - the U.S. Federal Reserve has orchestrated a bubble-like surge in commodity prices, an uptick in global inflation and a historic resurgence in U.S. stock prices.

The low-interest-rate strategy has enabled the U.S. central bank to achieve another important objective - a massive depreciation in the value of the U.S. dollar.

US Dollar Under Acute Pressure As World seeks an Alternative Reserve Currency / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Bob_Chapman

The days and years of manipulation, fraud and criminal behavior are fast coming to an end. New alliances are evolving, as are outspoken advocates of a new world reserve currency. As a result more and more foreigners are bypassing Treasury and Agency bonds, as well as other US dollar denominated investments. We watch as other major nations accumulate gold and cannot help but think that the new world reserve currency will be gold backed.

Japanese Currency Intervention, How Does Disaster Promote a Strong Currency? / Currencies / Japanese Yen

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter the catastrophic earthquake, the tsunami, and the nuclear-reactor scares, the Japanese currency ironically strengthened quite sharply. In response, the Bank of Japan and other major central banks last week launched a coordinated "intervention" into the currency markets in order to intentionally weaken the yen.

U.S. Dollar End Game / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor months and months I've been warning investors that the dollar was going to come under extreme pressure sometime this year. I expected it to probably happen in the spring. Many people thought I was nuts. They were sure it was the Euro that would collapse, despite the fact that the EU is doing everything they can to protect their currency while Bernanke is doing everything he can to destroy ours.

How the Fed Is Wrecking the U.S. Dollar / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Joseph_T_Salerno

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTestimony before the US House of Representatives, Committee on Financial Services, Subcommittee on Monetary Policy, March 17, 2011

The old argument has recently come back into vogue that moderate inflation is desirable to prevent the far greater evil of deflation. What used to be roundly condemned as "creeping inflation" in the 1950s by Fed officials and mainstream economists alike is today given the scientific-sounding name "inflation-targeting" and hailed as the proper goal of monetary policy.1 In the past decade, this view has been promoted by many mainstream economists, most notably former Fed Chairman Greenspan and current Fed chairman Bernanke. But this view is based on a fundamental confusion. It conflates deflation and depression, which are two very different phenomena. Falling prices are, under most circumstances, absolutely benign and the natural outcome of a prosperous and growing economy. The fear of falling prices is thus a phobia – I call it a "deflation-phobia" – which has no rational basis in economic theory or history.

Japanese Yen: G7 Intervention vs Laissez-faire / Currencies / Japanese Yen

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe world's fifth-largest 9.0 magnitude quake and the resulted tsunami not only devastated Japan, but also wreak havoc in the Japanese stock market. The worst two-day rout in 40 years caused a 6.2% drop in Nikkei share index, wiping £90 billion (roughly $145.45 billion) off stocks and shares traded there, reported The Telegraph.

Quake Response Puts Yen on the Line / Currencies / Japanese Yen

By: Peter_Schiff

One of the immediate financial consequences of the catastrophic Japanese earthquake is that Japan needs to call on its huge cache of foreign exchange reserves to rebuild its shattered infrastructure. To pay for domestic projects, Japan will require yen - not dollars, euros or Swiss francs. As a result of these conversions, the yen rallied considerably after the quake struck.

Eye on the Yen, Watching ProShares UltraShort Yen (YCS) / Currencies / Japanese Yen

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Indeed, as we told subscribers to expect, the G-7 (US, Japan, Germany, France, the UK, Italy and Canada) decided to intervene with the Bank of Japan on Thursday to "stabilize" the Yen.

Now the real battle begins, but as I have mentioned lately, the plight of the Yen since 2008 (its relentless climb, that is) in defiance of otherwise dismal Japan fundamentals, which were negatively exacerbated by the recent earthquake and tsunami damage, desperately calls for a lower currency to enable the Japanese economy, the Japanese Government, and its dynamic people to recover.

G7 Yen 'No-Buy' Zone, UN Libya No-Fly Zone / Currencies / Japanese Yen

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Before we get into today's yen action, our regular readers and followers on Twitter were warned of a potential China tightening action at 7:24 am GMT (over 3 hours before it materialized) when most pundits were mulling the details of the yen intervention. The PBOC raised its reserve requirement ratio by 50-bps to 20% as part of its gradualist approach to reining in lending and combating inflation.

Japanese Banking Crisis is Inevitable Despite G7 Currency Market Intervention / Currencies / Japanese Yen

By: Money_Morning

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: The United States and Canada today (Friday) joined other Group of Seven (G-7) nations to intervene as a means of weakening the Japanese yen in an effort to help Japan deal with last week's catastrophic earthquake and tsunami.

This G-7 intervention is a substantial development, although there are precious few details, since none of the world's central bankers (a list that includes the U.S. Federal Reserve) have commented on exactly what "intervention" entails. Nor have they identified what currencies will be involved.

Renate van Ginderen writes: Japan’s Economics Minister Kaoru Yosano stressed that damage from last week's devastating earth quake and tsunami to the country's economy would be limited. However, what he did not mention was that the adverse effects from damaged nuclear plants are likely to be much bigger.

ECB Peripheral Divergence and EUR/USD / Currencies / Euro

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe primary reason for the currency's stabilization earlier this year and the subsequent 10% rally from early Jan was the ECB's hawkish rhetoric in the face of rising inflation. 2.4% annual inflation was a sufficiently good reason for the ECB to make a hawkish twist, especially as it underwent the awkward task of having to buy Irish and Portuguese bonds, while preaching monetary discipline and price stability. Bernanke's constant reiterations to maintain QE2 into June did not help the US dollar and neither did the low-volume surge in global equities to fresh 2 ½ year highs.
