Why the Eurozone and the Euro Will Not Collapse, But Will Change / Currencies / Euro-Zone

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

There appears to be just over one week left for the Eurozone Finance Ministers to resolve the Eurozone debt crisis or face a collapse of confidence in it and the euro. This need not lead to a collapse of the two though. In perhaps an underestimated situation, the discord among the members of the "Europe United" bloc, the seeming inability to permanently resolve the crisis is well on the way to that end.

U.S. Dollar and Euro, Two Flawed Currencies / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: John_Browne

Despite America's economic problems, the US dollar has maintained its respected status the world over - and has even managed to maintain value in comparison to other currencies. It appears that the dollar will likely finish 2010 at the same levels that it started. Even today's announcement of more tax cuts and stimulus, which will guarantee widening federal deficits for years to come, could not put a dent in the dollar. The dollar's charmed life stands in strong contrast to the euro, which is currently suffering from its internal flaws and the Europeans' unfortunate recognition of reality.

What Happens When Currencies Go Bust? / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI was telling the doctor that I distinctly heard a popping sound inside my head when I saw that the foul Federal Reserve had created, last week alone, another $24.2 billion in Fed Credit, which was instantly turned into money when the Fed bought $24.2 billion of US government securities, and all in One Freaking Week (OFW)! It made a kind of "sizzling" sound.

EUR/USD Targets 1.25 / Currencies / Euro

By: Bari_Baig

Last week on Dec 2nd after the ECB’s press conference Euro found additional strength on news that three months were being extended in the QEI program and by Friday’s close Euro had traded upward to 1.343s. Euro then rallied from 1.298s to 1.343s which is 5 Big figures and we had termed the move a bounce even before it took place as we wrote in our article [The Good Days [Euro] dated Dec 1st on www.marketprojection.net and [Euro, USD, Gold, and Stock Index Analysis] on Dec 1st on www.marketoracle.co.uk that “Edited note “summary”: coming two days would be good for Euro and we are “Bulls” as we find Euro extremely over sold at this point however, after 2 days the downside opens up even more and we’d therefore sell on strength” regardless of what we had anticipated we are willing to give all this credit to Mr. Trichet. Why? Because the only obvious effect of Mr. Trichet’s statement was on Euro and it too was further aided by weak employment data from the U.S on Friday which resulted in U.S Dollar falling fast.

Collapse of the Debt Dollar Discipline: Financial Discipline & Punish / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article*The following is Part I in a two part series of articles on the relatively rapid emergence and collapse of the "debt-dollar discipline" imposed on our global society. It is being done in two installments mainly due to my current time constraints, but also for the sake of shorter length and targeted focus. This part will introduce Michel Foucault's (renowned french philosopher, 1926-1984) analysis of "discipline" and "punish" in the modern state, and apply it to the global debt-dollar reserve system. The next part will focus entirely on the ongoing collapse of this disciplinary system, as it such an important and far-reaching topic.

Is Euro really that Strong or it’s just a Bounce? / Currencies / Euro

By: Bari_Baig

Okay, let’s be fair, past two days have been wondrous for Euro without a doubt! It is difficult to understand how quickly war wounds are forgotten when the going gets “simple” and [apparently] things are going smooth, word of focus is “apparently”.  Euro Bulls are cheering and well they have all the right to do so but should we also cheer with them? To an extent, yes as we wrote in our article [Euro, USD, Gold and Stock Index Analysis] dated Dec 1st on www.marketprojection.net that “We say [Go Bulls] for 2 days” and we further went on to define the move that Euro would take in coming two days with the top side at 1.337s as the Single European currency seemed too oversold to us.

ECB Will Do Whatever it Takes to Save the Euro / Currencies / Euro

By: Axel_Merk

The one thing worse than a fire in a building is a fire in a building when emergency exits are bolted shut: a panic in the market is exacerbated when liquidity dries up. It appears the European Central Bank (ECB) embraces this view: in today's press conference by ECB head Trichet, he re-iterated a number of times that non-standard measures are there to permit appropriate transmission of standard measures. In plain English, this means that whatever emergency support is given to the market is a) temporary in nature and b) designed to allow monetary policy and thus economies to function.

China and Russia Trade Agreement: More than Meets the Eye / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Direct trade between China and Russia may be less than $50 billion annually, but it's not the numbers that matter.  Under the new agreement, China and Russia have decided that they will use their own local currencies to settle bilateral trade.  Previously, both countries used the United States dollar as an intermediary for settling delivery payments.

U.S. Dollar USD Index Deja-Vu from 52 Weeks Ago? / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUS dollar stabilizes up as US bond yields push higher following the 93K increase in Nov ADP (highest since Nov 2007) and the October revision to +82K from +43K. US 10 year yields jump to 2.91% from 2.79% earlier, further boosting the "good-data-is positive-for-USD" reaction, which was not always apparent. Although the euro is holding firm, general FX dynamics are increasingly similar to exactly a year ago when USD strengthened in early December 2009 on a combination of strong US Nov jobs report (released on December 4, 2009 at -11k vs expectations of -130K) and the triple downgrades of Greece later in the month (Fitch, S&P and Moodys). Are we witnessing a Déjà vu from exactly 52 weeks ago? Such would be the case in the event of double positive surprise (strong NFP, falling unemployment rate) and possibly upside revisions.

Could Gold Replace the Euro? / Currencies / Euro

By: Bari_Baig

The pace at which things are changing in this ever changing world is very interesting. Less than two weeks ago Irish government was reluctant to admit to a problem with the Irish Banking system. Outcome; Mr. Cowen panicked he did not just agree to the bailout package but to keep the fragile coalition in place he announced re-elections in January. Everyone touts about being democratic however, coalition governments seldom work [well] even when all seems to be going fine whereas Mr. Cowen has work cut out for him as he’s frantically juggling to keep things in place most importantly the Budget.

Four Ways to Monitor the U.S. Dollar and Risk Trade / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith European debt markets getting little relief thus far from the Ireland bailout, we need to keep a continued eye on the U.S. dollar. A weaker U.S. dollar tends to provide tailwinds for stocks, commodities, gold, and silver. Therefore, a longer-than-expected rally in the greenback may provide headwinds for these assets, with gold being the possible exception in the near-term.

Currency Manipulation, Two Sides to Every Coin / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecently, currency manipulation has garnered headline attention. We have been constantly bombarded with rhetoric out of Washington: “China isn’t allowing its currency to appreciate fast enough”; “China’s exchange rate policies are stealing jobs from America”; “We’re playing fair, why can’t China?” More often than not, the more vociferous proponents come from politicians who, in our opinion, are simply posturing for votes; attempting to provide catchy sound bites they believe will resonate with their constituents, without fully grasping the underlying fundamentals at play. The situation itself is truly paradoxical – akin to a major corporation thanking its largest creditor by insulting them.

U.S. Dollar Rally, Gold and the Art of Speculation / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Howard_Katz

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe rally in the dollar over the past few weeks serves as a good illustration of what it takes to be a good speculator.  I can remember when I was new to the art of speculation.  It was the early 1970s, and Richard Nixon, unilaterally and illegally, abolished the U.S. gold standard (or at least the slender, connection to gold which still existed at that time and was known as the Bretton Woods System).

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo perfect storms seem to be brewing up fast, one in Far East and the other in Western Europe with both having the potential of becoming category 5 storms[Maximum rating for a storm] and at their mercy lies the global investment world. These storms are bigger and meaner and their head on collision with one another is expected to take place sometime this coming week. Each storm system has a different impact on majority of the investments however; there is one exception and that being of Euro’s fate.
