Is the U.S. Dollar on the Brink? / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJust take a look at the chart of the U.S. dollar Index and you see a frightening sight. If it sinks any further its support will have evaporated. We have watched all this week the gold price rise and look good in the dollar. But in the euro it has barely moved. Against the Swiss Franc the dollar looks so weak. With the Technical picture looking so poor, one turns to the fundamentals to see if they conflict or support a downturn for the dollar.

What's Behind the Currency War? / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: MISES

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAntony P. Mueller writes: In September 2010, a short time before the international financial summit of the Group of Twenty (G20) took place in South Korea, Brazilian finance minister Guido Mantega declared that the world is experiencing a "currency war" where "devaluing currencies artificially is a global strategy."

Japanese Yen Bear Run Begins? / Currencies / Japanese Yen

By: Justin_John

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Thomas, Mad Hedge Fund Trader, loathes YEN. He has been negative for over 6 months. I do not disagree with him. I think YEN is putting in a major top in place for maybe years and we can see a near 30-40% correction in YEN over the next 24 months. The return could be higher against the EURO which is probably going to be the best performing currency in the next 24 months with constant rate hikes to fight a surging commodity inflation.

U.S. Dollar on the Edge of the Abyss / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe dollar is now poised on the edge of the abyss.

The current intermediate cycle has rolled over and is making lower lows and lower highs. The current daily cycle has formed a swing high and is in jeopardy of rolling over into a left translated cycle. If the dollar breaks below the November intermediate bottom of 75.63 it will be an incredibly bearish sign as not only will the current intermediate cycle have topped in only 4 weeks but the larger yearly cycle will also have topped in only 4 weeks.

Fed's Gold Bullish Script, Destroying the Dollar and Demolishing the United States / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat If We Had a Bubble and Nobody Came?
You could not have written a better script for gold.  It is almost as if the US Government and the Federal Reserve are trying to destroy the dollar and demolish the country – and taking most of the western world with it.

At the beginning of this gold bull market, in 2000, no one had ever heard of Barack Obama or Ben Bernanke.  But, 11 years later, and an outright socialist profligate spender is President of the US and a College professor who believes in crackpot Keynesian theories about how money printing can save economies is the Chairman of the Federal Reserve.

Currency Trading Update, Yen is the Pick to Short / Currencies / Japanese Yen

By: Justin_John

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYEN and Nikkei Trade: Where is YEN going?

Yen is at 120 levels which represent a multi decade high. There are very few things out there which are hitting a multi decade tops. Yen was 120 levels in 1995 after which it took a wild swing down to hit a bottom at 1998. After nearly 9 years of consolidation, YEN broke out and ran away to 120 levels in the last 4 years. It has been an extraordinary run, one which has confused many. Bill Gross has been on record saying that Japan is worthless piece of crap. Yen needs to be shorted against every high yielding currency.

China Takes Tentative Steps Towards Global Currency / Currencies / China Currency Yuan

By: Trader_Mark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe move of the yuan as a global currency is a very important one in the long run, as it will have potentially dramatic effects on the U.S. dollar as the sole reserve currency but for now things are going along at a snail pace.  In the interim, the Chinese currency is essentially pegged to the U.S. dollar (for better or worse).   Until the % of growth in China from exports is reduced, and they are far more reliant on internal consumption I don't see this loose peg changing anytime soon. Longer term, with 3 ugly ducklings (euro, dollar, yen) dominating the world's FX markets, the cart will eventually be turned over when a country (or region) coming from a position of fiscal strength rather than weakness enters the fray.  Via NYT:

Major Currency Trends For Potential For Major Gains, Yen and Dollar / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past few years Forex traders have really had to step up their game in order to continue making money in the currency market. Back in the day before currency trading was main stream, currencies used to trend in a direction for a long period of time with a low level of volatility. But with so many individuals now involved speculating on price action coupled with international concerns in most countries, the once slow and steady currency market now moves like the stock market with large price swings on a weekly and even daily basis.

U.S. Dollar Gains on Global Political Uncertainty / Currencies / US Dollar

By: LiveCharts

It is a amazing that despite some improving signs on the domestic economy, it is developments in Egypt that have helped prop up the dollar in early Friday (February 11) currency trade.

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has once again refused demands that he step down in lieu of a political uprising in the country. The uncertainty surrounding developments in Egypt have weighed on global equities, but the greenback has made a slight comeback.

Which Currency Will Crash First? / Currencies / Euro

By: Rosanne_Lim

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article2010 was an exciting year for currencies. The dollar, euro, the yen, and the yuan all went under the spotlight. Except for the yuan, each experienced drastic swings wrought about by internal or external factors. But overall, these events underwhelmed confidence in paper money. The main reason is because of the sovereign debt crisis that swept the world.

Most of the developed nations including the United States, Japan, and a number of European countries have unsustainable debt. The US and Japan, for example, are heading towards insolvency. Meanwhile, the only reason why several countries in the EU haven’t defaulted is the bail-out by stronger EU members.

In these pages we have spoken often about what will be the first real domino to fall in causing a chain reaction ending up in massive global political and financial change.  Often we follow our predictions with a statement something along the lines of, “but, in actuality, the defining primary event will likely come from somewhere that no one expects”.

The U.S. Dollar Index, How Low Can You Go? / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen looking at the Dollar Index, I am reminded of the song the "Cha Cha Slide"when the performer says, "How low can you go?" There is no question investors believe that the Dollar is going down and that equities are only going up all courtesy of Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke and his QE 2 policy. Yesterday's rally in equities and concurrent drop in the Dollar served to remind me of the fact that currency devaluation and increasing liquidity remain the drivers for equities. It has been that way since 2007, and why should it stop now? For the record, the Dollar Index was down a hefty 0.86% yesterday while stocks enjoyed a strong trend day.

New China Yuan Policy Presents Investors with the "Trade of the Century" / Currencies / China Currency Yuan

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: When the state-owned Bank of China Ltd. (BOC) recently announced that it would begin allowing U.S.-based customers to trade the Chinese yuan here, it represented the biggest step yet in China's ongoing campaign to build global acceptance for its currency.

That desire to boost interest in the yuan in the global currency and trade markets is bolstered by the fact that Beijing's foreign-exchange reserves have now reached a staggering $2.8 trillion.

Why Japan Needs a Weaker Yen, and How You Can Play It / Currencies / Euro

By: Bryan_Rich

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStandard & Poor’s downgraded Japan’s sovereign debt rating this week. It was the first cut in Japan’s rating in nine years. Japan now joins Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Spain — all of which have been downgraded in the past twelve months; hardly the kind of company a country wants to keep.

I’ve said many times that in a world mired in debt and deficits, it’s only a matter of time until Japan has its turn under the spotlight of global scrutiny. And with this downgrade, it could be sooner rather than later.

Could Bernanke Spark a Run on the U.S. Dollar? / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTreasury yields are "blinking red", but the Fed keeps acting like nothing's wrong. What's the deal?

Let's explain: Fed chairman Ben Bernanke's bond purchasing program (QE2) has sent the yield on  the 30-year Treasury skyrocketing. At the same time, the the 2-year Treasury is stuck at a lowly 0.61. That means, the "yield curve" between the two bonds has grown steeper, which normally happens at the beginning of a recovery because investors are moving out of "risk free" bonds to riskier assets like stocks. Typically, the yield on the long-term bond will start to go down on its own because investors expect the Fed to raise short-term rates to curb potential inflation. But that's not happening this time. Why? And why should we care?
