Euro in Freefall as European Monetary Union Faces Collapse / Currencies / Euro

By: Money_and_Markets

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBryan Rich writes: The biggest victim of the global housing and credit bubble may be the euro — the single currency of 16 European nations. Having just celebrated its 10th birthday in a free-fall, the euro is being exposed for all of its structural weaknesses.

The euro is managed with a common monetary policy. But a fractured fiscal and political structure has left it without a full toolbox to fight hard times. And this chink in the armor is threatening to make the euro's life-span short.

US Dollar Shines in a Depression as China buys Metals / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDe-leveraging” and “Risk Aversion” are the buzzwords cited by many currency analysts, to explain the puzzling strength of the US-dollar, which has climbed by more than 20% since last July, despite the widely held view, that top Wall Street banks are insolvent and only surviving on artificial life support, and with the flow of credit badly constrained, the US economy is spiraling towards a “Great Depression.

U.S Dollar Short-term Strength, Long-term Collapse / Currencies / US Dollar

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen President Obama took over the reins of government just six weeks ago, he stood at a historic crossroads. His decision on which route to take will make a profound impact on the future of the American economy and its currency. He could have persuaded a frightened Congress to initiate a structural change that would transform the U.S. economy from its dependence on debt-fueled personal consumption back to a path of productive growth. Instead, he took the easy route: attempting to delay the pain with stimulus and inflation, rewarding his benefactors without truly addressing our structural deficits. Disappointing for a man who campaigned on ‘hope' and ‘change.'

U.S. Dollar Setting up for Massive Trend Reversal / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: ForexPros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe USD is ending today flat to weaker after whipsawing traders all day in both directions; speculation regarding US stimulus actions and upcoming fundamentals is providing both sides with fuel for their argument. After starting weaker in Asia the USD rallied into New York action today extending highs against most pairs by the London fix. Into the afternoon as equities also went two-way the Greenback retreated from highs in most pairs giving bulls a reason to lighten up.

U.S. Dollar Gains, When Will the Flight to Quality End? / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: ForexPros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe USD holds on to gains as lower equities and falling Gold prices pushed investors into flight-to-quality instruments lifting USD to better levels against most major pairs. The one exception is USD/JPY which has failed to extend gains for a second day; high prints overnight at 97.92 went unchallenged in New York as did lows at 96.90 but the rate spent most of the day under the 97.50 area making today an inside range day with a neutral close. Traders note that dips near the 97.00 handle were met with quality bids but the lack of upside follow-through suggests that the rate is topping and due for a deeper correction. Most analysts point out that the USD DX is at a three year high on lighter volume suggesting also that the USD is near a top near-term. Should the USD/JPY break into stops said to be resting between 96.50 and 96.80 area there could be a sharp break pulling all the USD pairs lower.

The Canadian Currency Faces Deepening Damage Ahead / Currencies / Canadian $

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile the dollar and the yen continue to prove being the strongest currencies during falling equities, let's focus on the currency with the combination of past sell-off as well as prolonged downside ahead. The latest Canadian GDP report accentuates our recent notes highlighting the case against the Canadian dollar as the country produces deteriorating figures on growth, jobs and industrial production. Q4 GDP fell 3.4% annualized (first decline since 91) from +0.9% on Q3, while 2008 GDP rose 0.5% from 2.7% in 2007.

U.S. Dollar Bears: Be Very Careful / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJack Crooks writes: The rest of the world cannot yet decouple from the United States' economy. Excessive deleveraging of U.S. dollar-based credit is the sure sign that investors have come to understand this fact. They've pulled in extreme amounts of capital in search of a safe place to stash their cash.

Money Supply and the Purchasing Power of Fiat Currencies / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Mike_Hewitt

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article1. Introduction - In this paper, we analyze the value of money. We consider both paper money and gold. We attempt to relate the supply of money (MS) and gold to their purchasing power (PP). We demonstrate the extent to which printing of money dilutes its value. As a store of value, the value of money is represented by its purchasing power. We compare the ability of paper money and gold to function as a long-term store of value. We conclude that gold is an excellent store of value, while paper money is not. We observe that excessive printing of paper money is the ultimate cause for the inability of paper money to function appropriately as a store of value.

Yen Could Crash Following Collapsing Japanese Economy / Currencies / Japanese Yen

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: Historically speaking, the Japanese yen has proved to be a safe haven against global turmoil. Right now, however, Japan's economy is among the worst hit of all the global powers. It is ill prepared to weather the global storm and it's falling like a rock.

That's why, this time around, as Japan's economy falls away, I think there's a very good chance the yen could drop as well.

European Monetary System at Breaking Point / Currencies / Euro

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen others were fawning over the European Union and its committee creation of the euro, Milton Friedman made this prescient and brilliant comment: “It seems to me that Europe, especially with the addition of more countries, is becoming ever-more susceptible to any asymmetric shock. Sooner or later, when the global economy hits a real bump, Europe's internal contradictions will tear it apart.”

British Pound to Crash to New All Time Lows / Currencies / British Pound

By: FleetStreetInvest

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon't be fooled by recent mainstream press reports of a ‘pound rally'. What we're seeing here are short-lived bursts rather than a proper, sustained gain. The trend for the pound remains down.

Why? Because UK interest rates and the economy are both heading south.

U.S. Dollar Stalls at Resistance / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: ForexPros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe USD continued to climb overnight but stalled off the highs in New York showing some signs of topping again as the long-awaited government “stimulus” bill failed to encourage investors today. At this writing President Obama is signing into law a record spending bill that has serious flaws and serious short-sighted programs in my view which will lead to a breakdown in economic recovery and a protracted recession/depression.

Euro Currency Fractures as European Bond Markets Diverge on Default Risks / Currencies / Euro

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor almost a decade, yields on bonds issued by different Euro-zone governments moved close together. By joining the Euro-bloc currency regime, every member state could suddenly reap the benefits of “free-riding” in the Euro-zone bond market, or borrowing at almost the same interest rates as Germany , irrespective of whether the country's economic fundamentals justified the lower rate.

U.S. Dollar Index Still Bullish / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy reluctance to embrace the rally in gold has been well documented . One of the reasons, I did not jump on the gold band wagon was the strength in the US Dollar Index. Since August, 2008, it has been my belief that the US Dollar was poised for a secular change in trend and that gold has only been in a range. Based upon this, it remains my belief that the US Dollar is a better place to invest.

Currencies 2009: Policies of INSOLVENCY, aka Falling Dominoes! / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Ty_Andros

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 2008, the currency markets offered some of the greatest opportunities of all markets. Every currency had substantial moves ‘up and down' and many times BOTH ways, as deleveraging and stampedes of panic swept through the markets at different times. 2009 will be no different, only now we are going to look for sharp differences in two in particular. Those that exist in REAL MONEY will skyrocket and pretenders to that moniker will decline regardless of the country that issues them.

This essay analyzes the historic growth of the American monetary stock (or aggregates) since 1960 and looks at some recent developments revealing a marked adjustment in policy.

U.S. Dollar Volatile Trend Lower into End of Week / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: ForexPros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe USD continues to trade mixed today after US data failed to inspire traders one way or the other. GBP fell to a new traded low of 1.4315 before reversing back to the 1.4370 area in lighter volumes; cross-spreaders continue to work the sell side of the rate into the New York close. Overnight UK data was also benign and remarks somewhat dovish but the rate remains firm on the 1.4300 handle ahead of more US data tomorrow. Traders expect more two-way action near-term so aggressive traders looking to buy the dip under the 1.4380 area remember to be nimble.
