AUDUSD Elliott Wave View : 5 Waves Move / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: ElliottWave-Forecast

AUDUSD ended the correction in Intermediate wave (X) after reaching 0.7486 and then started rallying from there. With today’s new high the pair is showing 5 waves impulsive move from 03/09/2017 low and has already reached the minimum target area for Minutte wave (v) to end. The minimum target for Minutte wave (v) can be calculated as the inverse 1.236-1.618 Fibonacci extension of Minutte wave (iv) which comes at 0.7734 – .07753. Short term, an extension higher can’t be ruled out as there are still 2 other methods for calculating the 5th wave and one method of calculating (v) = (i) gives us a higher target around the equal legs area at 0.7765 – 0.7790.

Crypto Craziness: Bitcoin Plunges on Fork Concerns, Steem Skyrockets and Dash Surges Above $100 / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

The last month has not helped bitcoin’s reputation as being a volatile currency.

A month ago bitcoin was trading near $1,000. Two weeks later it sat on the cusp of $1,300. Then, after the SEC turned down a bitcoin ETF, it sank below $1,000 briefly a week ago.

It’s Time to Stop Putting a Patch on the Euro / Currencies / Euro

By: Rodney_Johnson

Andreas Georgiou can’t catch a break.

The Greek statistician moved back to his home country in 2010, at age 50, to help right the financial ship. He left Washington, where he had spent 21 years working for the International Monetary Fund, to take over the agency that reports Greece’s financial health.

Part of the problem with Greece is that no one knows exactly how big their problems are, since the numbers weren’t exactly accurate.

I’ve been commenting a lot on bitcoin lately as it has had an amazing and volatile week.

One thing that I keep noticing in the comments, though, is at least one or two people always chime in and say, “Bitcoin is screwed when SHTF”.

Bitcoin Price Returns To All-Time Highs As Cryptocurrencies Explode Higher / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

In the wake of the Winklevoss ETF being shot down by the SEC, bitcoin’s price took a major dive of nearly $300, briefly going below $1,000 last Friday.

Now, just a few days later, the price has nearly made a full recovery shooting past $1240 and surpassing, once again, the spot price of gold.

Bitcoin Gets WinkleF*ked By the Criminal SEC Organization / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

Last week we heralded, “Bitcoin Is Now As Good As Gold, Actually, It’s Better”.

It was a bit tongue-in-cheek, and I knew it’d get the gold crowd whipped into a frenzy. But, the point was, for the first time ever, the value of one unit of bitcoin surpassed the value of one ounce of gold.

At the time it was around $1,250.

Monitoring Rising USD Patterns / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Ashraf_Laidi

As we approach Friday's US jobs report, deemed by some as instrumental in determining the already surging odds of a Fed hike next week (and by others as irrelevant), here are a few USD notes worthy of consideration. The 6-currency basket USDX is entering its 5th straight consecutive weekly gain, the longest string of rallies since the 6-weekly gains seen on Dec 2014-Jan 2015 when the Fed ended QE3. Interestingly, we haven't had many uninterrupted weekly USD gains. Here are the most recent ones.

Bitcoin ( BTCUSD ) Warning Stage / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: ElliottWave-Forecast

Bitcoin Review

Last year , Bitcoin was still considered as a fading project and many expected its price to keep dropping and break below $100. However in the recent months, the crypto-currency kept rising significantly and finally managed to make new all time high and break above $1200 last week ! That’s only $50 short of the equivalence to 1 ounce of GOLD which could have a big impact in the future .

EURUSD: When Price Pattern Trumps Other "Reasons" / Currencies / Euro

By: EWI

Waves of market psychology often warn of trend changes before the news -- see how

This was an eventful week in politics, monetary policy and the markets -- and to many observers, the three seemed to be linked.

On Wednesday (March 1), the U.S. dollar did something it hadn't done in almost two months: It got stronger. Two reasons were behind the move, said analysts: The Fed's imminent rate hike, and, President Trump's widely-covered address to Congress:

Trump's Monetary Intervention, A Repeat of the Plaza Accord / Currencies / US Dollar

By: STRATFOR

Forecast

  • A strong dollar will undermine U.S. President Donald Trump's plans to reduce the United States' trade deficit.
  • If the dollar's value continues to rise, Trump may consider unilateral or, failing that, multilateral currency interventions to bring it back down.
  • Negotiating a new coordinated monetary intervention in the spirit of the 1985 Plaza Accord will be onerous, however.

Capital Controls May Be Coming to the US / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: John_Mauldin

Those who hoped President Trump would tone down his protectionist rhetoric will be unnerved six weeks into his tenure. From his meeting with business CEOs, Trump has put trade “front and center.”

So far, all is going well for the president. Markets are inching higher, and inflationary forces have picked up. However, bringing back jobs and reducing the trade deficit will be a tougher task.

Bitcoin Important Price Action to Be Seen / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: no speculative positions.

Bitcoin is making its way into mainstream press. In an article on the CNBC website, we read:

Digital currency advocates had plenty to crow about last week when bitcoin's price overtook gold.

The event signaled a potentially important moment point for bitcoin, which is generally seen as asset that stores wealth. Bitcoin has gained more than 60 percent in price since mid-January.

Bitcoin Is Now As Good As Gold, Actually It’s Better / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

It wasn’t too long after I discovered bitcoin in 2011, trading at $3, that I became one of its biggest promoters.

I have even said on several different occasions, that if bitcoin reaches its ultimate potential it will be worth more than $1 million in today’s US dollar terms. Of course, if it did, we wouldn’t be talking about the price of bitcoin in dollars because dollars likely wouldn’t exist anymore.

A Global Eurodollar Shortage / Currencies / Euro

By: Gordon_T_Long

The World Bank just released a telling report entitled "Trade Developments in 2016: Policy Uncertainty Weighs on World Trade". Though they deflect the problems in global trade to areas such as excessive regulatory initiatives and policy uncertainty (which is true), what is to be found buried in the appendix are the two un-annotated charts below. I suspect the World Bank didn't compare them directly (they are shown separately) because it would cast a spotlight on an even larger political 'football'.

How does global trade ship ~10% more trade volume but receive ~12% less revenue over a 5 year period? The answer has traditionally been significant improvements in productivity. However, the productivity numbers by country don't even come close to supporting such a premise.

Oscars Debacle – Movies More Costly As US Dollar Devalued / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: GoldCore

  • Cost of Best Picture winners show very significant devaluation of the dollar
  • Average cost to make an Oscar winning film is over $43 million – in gold terms, this is over 106,000 ounces
  • Four $15 million films show nearly 100% difference when priced in gold ounces
  • Oscar fiasco was courtesy of error by accountants PWC
  • Whilst the price of the films remained the same, the cost in gold ounces fell from 11.53% of the cost to make the Departed, in 2009 to just 6.4% in 2012
  • In an error prone, irrational and volatile world, gold retains value over time …

Bitcoin Price Hits Record High! / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

Bitcoin has just smashed through its all-time high in US dollar terms.

The US dollar was the last all-time fiat currency to crack as bitcoin has been hitting all-time highs in every other government/mafia mandated currency over the last few years.

On CoinDesk bitcoin hit an all time high of $1206.60 which is the highest it’s been since Mt. Gox in 2013, which doesn’t count, because it was likely inflating bitcoin prices before it was shut down.

We have been the biggest proponent of bitcoin in the financial space since it was $3 in 2011.

It now sits just a few dollars from its all-time high (ex-Mt. Gox which wasn’t a legitimate high) of $1,150. And, bitcoin has remained above the $1000 price level for a record stretch of time - seven days!
