The Swiss Franc Ties Itself To The Collapsing Euro in Double Suicide / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Jeff_Berwick

These are grand times to be dollar vigilantes.

The whole premise of being a dollar vigilante is the acknowledgement that the entire global financial system is an artificial and oppressive system that is nearing the end of its road (and purchasing hard assets and internationalizing our assets to protect ourselves).

If you Debase the U.S. Dollar, you Debase them all… / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Aftab_Singh

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePraise the deposit. If only one thing in this world is to be guaranteed, let it be the holy financial instrument that is the commercial bank deposit. — Prayer 3:23, The Book of State-Banking

In recent years, the above prayer has been answered by the oh-so-benevolent monetary authorities of the West — we were ‘saved’ by the self-sacrificial debauchery of Western central banks. Alas, the commercial banker that owed what wasn’t his’n, wasn’t faced with the unappetizing prospect of buying it back or going to pris’n! Consequently, the question that repeatedly presents itself is: ‘Who got stiffed then?’

Threats to the U.S. Dollar, Illusion Of Stable Currency Vortex / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Jackson Hole Conference was a dud. To the astute student observer, something happened never seen before. The US central bank chief admitted failure, if only people could properly interpret and translate his words of helplessness and disappointment. A more apt description was that USFed Chairman Bernanke used the forum to announce on stage that the central bank failed and is powerless to react to the current lapse into recession. Many watchers no longer believe that a Quantitative Easing chapter #3 will be announced. Surely it will come sooner or  later. Watch the USTreasury auctions for the best clue. The QE2 program was about prevention of auction failure, not economic stimulus. A quick review of monetary policy and its effect is horrifying for its utter complete failure.

Why the Euro is Not a Good Short / Currencies / Euro

By: Capital3X

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNo matter how bad the situation in EU zone is, the current price action is speaking a different language. Euro is not a good short at these levels. On the contrary, EUR/USD and EUR/GBP are building up a tremendous consolidation last seen probably in 2007. We know what happened then as it broke away to hit all time highs at 1.62. We are not saying it will do so now but the case to do so exists.

Money Printing, Debt, Dollar Vs Euro / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA key reason for recent market turmoil may be the long overdue untangling of important debt-driven interdependencies between the U.S. and Europe. In our analysis, not only has the Federal Reserve’s (Fed’s) ultra-low monetary policy taken away any incentive to engage in meaningful reform in the U.S., but the easy money also spilled far beyond U.S. shores, providing European banks with hundreds of billions of reasons not to shore up their capital bases. With volatility riding high, investors appear to be chasing emotions rather than facts; let’s take a step back, and in an effort to understand where the Fed, the U.S. dollar and the euro might be heading next, let’s focus on facts rather than emotion.

The Floating Exchange Rate System / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: George_Maniere

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article           In 1953, renowned economist Milton Freidman was the first man to propose the “floating exchange rate system.” In 1971 it became a reality as then President Nixon was trying to open trade with China. Friedman saw the floating exchange rate system as a way to even the playing field for the fortunes of every nation. Sadly, I see that the bigger governments have tried to obfuscate the free market trade as they want the whole pie for themselves.

Currency Collapse - Where Now ? / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne thing is sure and certain. Permanent avoidance of economic, financial and monetary reality has resulted in the USA, European Union and Japan facing unmanageable and self-reinforcing debt spirals that - logically - should lead to currency collapse. By political decision, the "only solution" is to decree harsh austerity plans cutting economic growth and government tax revenues, and paper over the problem with massive amounts of newly printed currency. The only logical result is a stampede into gold and other precious metals. Occasionally, and without conviction, there will be a partial selloff in gold and some dip buying of eroding and fragile equities.

U.S. Dollar, the Mother of all Mathemagical Derivatives / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Aftab_Singh

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe all think we know the story of the recent ‘bubble in credit’. As the explanation goes; Americans took on too much debt, those debts were ‘packaged up’ into complex financial instruments, those instruments were then bought, sold and ‘re-packaged’ by people who didn’t even understand them, blah blah blah… Even with this cursory and boringly consensual view of recent history, at least people have figured out that they shouldn’t blindly trust the mathemagicians… or have they? Here I ask; what about the king of all derivatives; the one that deviously subsumes all others? Indeed, what about the derivative that even derivative traders assume to be axiomatically fundamental and distinctly not derived?

Fiat Paper Currencies Finally Redeemed for Gold / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: John_Browne

The basic unwillingness of politicians to face economic and financial realities has caused the United States and European Union to face currency collapse. The politicians are content literally to paper over the problem with massive amounts of newly printed currency. This means that savvy investors, facing major real losses, are turning increasingly to gold. In essence, even though currencies are no longer on a gold standard, they are increasingly being "redeemed" for gold in the marketplace.

Downward Pressure Builds Again for the US Dollar / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Donald_W_Dony

The 'safe haven' status of the US dollar maybe coming to an end. Normally during times of market corrections, traders run to the American currency for protection. However, during the early August market drop, the big dollar barely moved. Though T-Bill auctions were well bid, there was little increase in demand for the greenback.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe last reviewed the currencies in early July: http://caldaro.wordpress.com/2011/07/04/foreign-currency-and-usd-update/.

The world’s equity markets have entered bear markets, US Bonds have been soaring, commodities have generally weakened, Gold has been making all time new highs, and the Swiss Franc (CHFUSD) has gone parabolic.

UnHappy 40th Birthday for Fiat U.S. Dollar / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAugust 15 marks the 40th birthday of the Federal Reserve Note as a completely fiat currency.

On that date, on August 15, 1971, Richard Nixon commandeered the airwaves to announce the closing of the gold window. According to him, this was necessary to protect the US dollar from attacks from the "international money speculators'.

Beginning of the End of the Current Fiat Monetary System / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: David_Galland

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Galland, Managing Director Casey Research writes: I am beginning to feel a bit like one of the French unfortunates stumbling through the fog in the Ardennes, circa 1914. Except that, instead of Germans full of deadly intent coming at me in the gloomy forest, it is a flock of black swans.

As it was for the French in the Ardennes, the number of problems - then Germans, now black swans - is becoming overwhelming.

Can Revulsion with the Federal Reserve Note be Sustained over the Weeks and Months Ahead? / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Aftab_Singh

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe seem to have reached an intermediate-term extreme in revulsion for the Federal Reserve note. It seems to us that the status quo of the currency markets is highly dependent on the Federal Reserve accommodating the market’s perception of it. Here, I present the usual Federal Reserve balance sheet charts and briefly outline why we continue to anticipate a short-term rally in the dollar.

However, the tools with which he has done his doubting have evolved over time. Here, I detail the means by which alert speculators have questioned the currency systems of the past, and the means by which they question the irredeemable fiat currency systems of today.

U.S. Economy Saved by a Trillion-Dollar Coin? / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNow that the "crisis" over the federal debt ceiling has been averted, we can leisurely explore two of the wackier proposals that emerged during the state of panic. Not surprisingly, the schemes involved the Federal Reserve and its ability to circumvent, not just standard accounting, but also the traditional divisions of political power. It's worth studying the episode carefully because we will probably see one or more of these "solutions" promoted as the only answer to another crisis in the not-too-distant future.
