The Dollar is the World’s Currency, but the Federal Reserve is America’s Central Bank! / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Aftab_Singh

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen considering the dollar’s status as the world’s reserve currency, I cannot help but recall the words of Jim Grant (of Grant’s Interest Rate Observer):

The dollar is the world’s currency but the Federal Reserve is America’s central bank! Period!

Fed Given License To Debase U.S. Dollar Further, Gold Strong Breakout / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US Federal Reserve has no monetary options whatsoever. They have been backed into the corner since 2007. It was coerced to reduce interest rates as the subprime mortgage crisis morphed into an absolute bond crisis, as the Jackass loudly stated during that fateful summer. The US bank leaders claimed it was contained. It was not. The USFed was backed into the corner in 2009, unable to raise interest rates from near 0% (the Zero Interest Rate Policy disease) and put into effect its propaganda theme of an Exit Strategy. The US bank leaders knew the longest period of time for the Fed Funds rate to stick at 0% was nine months, ensuring a future disaster. They saw it. They claimed a move toward normalcy. It did not come.

The Secret Way to Profit from the U.S. Debt to China / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Hyman writes: Perhaps the biggest reason our country is facing a contentious debt-ceiling debate is because of the massive U.S. debt to China.

It's easy to forget that China is the world's largest buyer of U.S. Treasuries and it has as much to lose in this high-stakes game of chicken as does the United States.

Thoughts on Currency Speculation, Dollar, Breaking Correlation Between the Euro and Gold / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Aftab_Singh

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA few weeks back, we mentioned that ’we would embrace [a short-term higher high in the dollar index] as an opportunity to take part on the long-side‘. The dollar index has come under some pressure over the past week, so just in case any of our readers were wondering if we’ve changed our minds completely, I thought I’d highlight why we’re sticking to our long dollar position for now (even though the immediate price action hasn’t corroborated this view yet). In the process of outlining our view, I’ll go over our philosophy on currency speculation and consider the breaking correlation between the dollar price of the Euro and the dollar price of gold.

Most American's Don't Believe the U.S. Dollar Will Collapse / Currencies / Fiat Currency

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy Jeff Clark, BIG GOLD : In spite of constant headlines about debts and deficits, most Americans don’t really believe the U.S. dollar will collapse. From knowledgeable investors who study the markets to those seemingly too busy to worry about such things, most dismiss the idea of the dollar actually going to zero.

U.S. Dollar Default to Change Gold and Silver Markets / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

Last Friday we were led to believe that the debt-ceiling crisis would be over by the start of Asia's business on Monday. The weekend has gone and so the deal. The markets are very nervous and beginning to worry that a deal will not be made. This is merely a political game to earn a name because one or the other gives-in first. But the two leaders represent national parties and not themselves; therefore, the sensitivity needed to back down just in time isn't there. The structure of politics doesn't allow it. Not only that, but it takes a few days to implement the ceiling change.

Eye on Euro / Currencies / Euro

By: Mike_Paulenoff

It is interesting that the EUR/USD is circling unchanged this morning while spot gold price continue to climb in reaction to the ongoing impasse in the U.S. debt ceiling debate. You would think that if the desperate elements within the EC political structure managed to find common ground to deal with (quarantine) Greece during a crisis, that U.S. politicians would be able to put aside some of their differences to end this game of brinkmanship to avert an unprecedented crisis.

Worried about Fluctuating Money Values? Forget it! Start Worrying about Fluctuating Money! / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Aftab_Singh

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe great worry that hastened the establishment of the world’s central banks was that monies tended to fluctuate in value. Here, I explain how such ‘fluctuating money values’ came about and — importantly — how this attribute has since mutated. Hopefully, by the end of this article it should be clear that it is changing money, and not fluctuating money values, that one should be focussed on!

U.S. Dollar Supply and Demand Altered Dynamics, Silver Targets $100 / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe economic theory in textbooks must be updated to account for Fiat Soft Science. An important third factor determines price. It is not demand, as most Deflationist Knuckleheads claim. It is not supply, as the moronic followers of Laffer Curve advocates insist. Instead, it is the falling USDollar since all commodities are priced in US$ terms. Lower demand will not result in lower commodity prices, since the monetary effect trumps all. The twist lies in the pricing denomination units, not in the Price Demand dynamics. An inflationary recession is deeply rooted in progress, with a depression next to occur. The price effects continue to confuse the dullard economists who have actually foreseen almost nothing in the current ongoing crisis. Their collective value is far less than garbage collectors who tend to the landfills, or landscapers who improve the appearance of home lawns. The crisis toward wreckage all occurs like a wrecked house floating over a waterfall for all to observe in sheer horror, as wealth evaporates and national sovereignty is forfeited to creditors.

Making the U.S. Dollar Safer: Return ON Your Money / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday’s debate may be focused on whether the debt ceiling will be raised, but it’s tomorrow’s debate that really concerns us. Last week, Standard & Poors made it clear that raising the debt ceiling would be one thing, but in order to withhold a downgrade to the U.S. credit rating, the U.S. must show that it is not “maxed out.” In other words, show that it would be able to manage another crisis, or a potential war. What would be the implications of a credit downgrade? And what policies would need to be engaged in, in order to avert a downgrade and strengthen the U.S. dollar over the long-term?

Bernanke’s Nightmare / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Brady_Willett

The Great Ron Paul (no factiousness intended as Dr. Paul is truly one of a kind), has once again stymied the not-so-great Bernanke. After listening to Bernanke ramble on about people buying precious metals because of tail risks*, Mr. Paul finally interrupted and asked Bernanke point blank: ‘Do you think gold is money’?   Bernanke’s answer, after an awkward pause, was as follows:

The Bell Tolls For The U.S. Dollar / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat an incredible day.  I spent most of my day overlooking the beach in southern Mexico and so I was unaware of the buzz of activity that was going on worldwide.  Around sundown, as I do most evenings, I then made my way to my office, Starbucks, and took my place in my usual seat, the red comfortable chair with armrests and began to scroll through the news of the day via the last free place on earth, the internet.  And what a day it was!

Panic in the Markets, Making the U.S. Dollar Safer, Return OF Your Money / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is panic in the markets: reviving memories of the peak of the financial crisis, investors have recently appeared less concerned about the return on their money, rather focusing on the return of their money. In what is a hallmark of grave investor concern, investors are paying for the privilege of lending money to the U.S. government: the yield on one and three month Treasury bills has been flirting again with negative yields.

How the British Pound Sterling Fell From Grace / Currencies / British Pound

By: Aftab_Singh

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe pound sterling has come a long way since its heyday back in the 19th and early-20th centuries. Since then, the dollar has taken its place and — potentially — is itself to be supplanted in the not-too-distant future. Here, I get to grips with the marginalization of the pound as the world’s favorite ‘reserve currency asset’.

Instead of bamboozling you with the jargon used by the typical student of money, I thought I’d outline a few rudimentary concepts first. There are two main reasons for doing this:

Coiling U.S. Dollar Set to Unwind / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Joseph_Russo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the medium-term, like many other broad based indices, the dollar continues to consolidate in a rather large sideways range. Its boundaries however, are not visually discernable in looking out over the short and near term as we’re doing here.

Over the near-term, the dollar has been coiling in a contracting triangle from late May.  Although it reserves the right to continue coiling for a couple of more weeks, the longer it does so, the more violent the unwind may be.
