U.S. Dollar and the Flying Bankers / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Joe_Gelet

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe heart of the crisis is very simple: banks won't lend.  Why they won't lend is irrelevant, the solution is so simple it seems too good to be true:  force banks to lend.  The modern economy functions on credit; exporters sell to foreign buyers using complex Letters of Credit packed with shipping insurance, small businesses depend on rotating credit lines to purchase inventory they sell to the consumer.  Mostly working on small margins, these businesses depend heavily on credit to stay afloat; even a short disruption in their lending activities would literally bankrupt them.  This has already started happening, and the banks are sitting on the sidelines.  The simple, clear solution is to force banks to lend, by any means.  Giving banks more money is not helping, they already have plenty of money, the problem is not that banks are undercapitalized it is that they will not lend.

Exploding Debt Dynamics: Argentia and the U.S. Dollar's Fate / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Justice_Litle

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhither the dollar and gold? To answer that long-awaited inquiry – which will take some time to cover in full – let's start by getting a handle on “exploding debt dynamics.” Cartoonish as it sounds, it's a real term that IMF economists use.

If, like me, the phrase gives you visions of Wile E. Coyote blowing himself up with a box of ACME brand dynamite, you aren't too far off.

British Pound Crashes on GDP 0.5% Contraction / Currencies / British Pound

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe British Pound Crashed following the worse than expected GDP data that showed that the UK economy contracted by 0.5% in the third quarter which was against consensus forecasts of 0.2% and the Market Oracle forecast for a 0.3% drop. Anything worse than 0.3% was expected to lead to panic selling of sterling which is what transpired. The British Pound fell from an already depressed level of £/$1.61 all the way to £/$ 1.5250 a drop of more than 8 cents which represents the largest intra-day drop since exchange rates started to float freely following the collapse of the Bretton Woods system in 1971 due to trade imbalance strains.

British Pound Biggest Crash Since 1971 and USD/JPY Cycles / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSterling collapses by over 800 points (8 cents) to $1.5260, posting its biggest intraday decline since exchange rates became freely floated in 1971, reinforced by a bigger than expected 0.5% q/q decline in UK Q3 GDP, and a 0.3% y/y rise, versus expectations of a 0.2% q/q decline and below expectations. EURs decline vs USD is not as pronounced as GBP, hence the prolonged spike in EURGBP to a 2-month high of 81.00 pence from Wednesdays 77.5 pence. World equity markets are in virtual free fall, with trading on S&P500 mini contracts suspended for reaching limit down.

The U.S. Dollar Death Dance / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US Dollar rally in the last several weeks has been remarkable. At closer examination, it highly resembles a spurt prior to death. Imagine an old man who just had a heart attack, lost feeling in certain body parts, his mind not working right, plenty of nonsense gibberish coming from his mouth, and now he is dancing hard on some last gasps. The vast liquidation movement is akin to the old man going through an embalming process while dancing atop the tables at the funeral parlor, as bidding proceeds for his cadaver.

Europe Seeks to Implement New Bretton Woods Fiat Currency System / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Mick_Phoenix

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWelcome to the Weekly Report. It looks like Europe wants to re-invent the wheel and soundings are being made to introduce a "new Bretton Woods".

Bretton Woods was effectively an exchange rate mechanism, were gold backed the new kid on the world block, namely the post war US dollar and all other currencies floated around the dollar in a fixed range. If a currency moved too far either way of the range then the respective Central Bank stepped in and delivered the appropriate medicine.

Central Banks Scramble to Buy Dollars to Bolster Banking Systems / Currencies / US Dollar

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe G-7 countries now have what amounts to access to the US Fed's window for dollars for their banks. But what of the rest of the world? Brad Setser, an analyst who writes a blog for the Council on Foreign Relations, ask some very interesting questions and points out some big holes in the world economic landscape. If you can't get dollars what does that do to your currency? This contributes to the rise in the dollar against some emerging market currencies. Setser asks: "Where is my swap line? And will the diffusion of financial power Balkanize the global response to a broadening crisis?"

U.S. Highly Inflationary Monetary Growth Will Lead to Dollar Implosion / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn previous Dollar Death Ray we saw how size of U.S. Federal Reserve balance had exploded. That financial frenzy continues. In most recent report, Federal Reserves balance sheet, after appropriate adjustment, was 46% larger than a year ago. Most of that growth has come recently during bank bailout scheme. Rarely, if ever, has central bank of a major economy so lost control of its balance sheet, or monetary policy. That expansion of reserve bank credit is now feeding the growth of U.S. money supply, M-2.

USD/JPY Strategy and Yield Curve Analysis / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleViolent volatility maintains its daily routine of aggressive swings, as US equities close 5% higher after more than a 9% decline yesterday, dragging risk appetite and currencies along with them. Wednesday's trading session saw a short-lived attempt for economic reports to reassert their dominance on financial markets before risk took over on Thursday. Market players were astounded by the fact that neither the 34-year lows in US industrial production, nor 18-year lows in the Philadelphia Fed index nor the record lows in the US National Association of Homebuilders' index dipping managed to bring down US stocks.

We're well past the point when central banks and governments around the globe inexplicitly declared it their duty to save their economies. But they really unleashed their helping hands this week.

Interest Rate Cuts, Recapitalisation's, Japanese Yen becomes Hard Currency / Currencies / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEurope was all but written off on Tuesday when Gordon Brown, the UK prime minister announced late in the day that £50 billion (about $85 billion) may be injected into several of the biggest banks. The details known so far are that eligible banks can issue preference shares to the government; the Bank of England makes another £200 billion of liquidity available in the short-term markets; and a further £250 billion of government guarantees are issued to help banks in their funding needs. We have been arguing that recapitalizing banks is the most effective way to support financial institutions ( see our analysis of the $700 billion bailout package ).

Global Financial Crisis Safe Havens / Currencies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Axel_Merk

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have been warning for some time that “there is no such thing as a safe asset anymore, you have to take a diversified approach to something as mundane as cash.” Unfortunately, the current crisis shows that we may be right. Physical gold is attractive to many investors because of its lack of counter party risk. The only counter party risk with gold held in your personal vault is that someone may break in and steal it. However, even staunch gold bugs rarely hold all their net worth in gold, but diversify if for no other reason that it is impractical to have essentially all your net worth in gold. And while gold is currently fulfilling its role as sound money, it often trades in tandem with other commodities; this can result in stomach-twisting volatility. As a result, many hold gold as insurance, but few truly live on their personal gold standard.

Credit Crisis Actions Risk Collapse of European Monetary Union / Currencies / Euro

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany of us in the US are focused on our own woes. But this is a global credit crisis. In today's Outside the Box, we take a look at the currency markets, which are in an historic upheaval and also look at what is going on in Europe. I suspect that Europe is in for a period of much distress, as the world begins to deleverage That is why one government after another will back the deposits of banks within their countries, for otherwise capital will flee to countries like Ireland and Germany which ARE guaranteeing the deposits for all banks in their borders. . Many European banks are leveraged 50 to 1 (not a misprint). I suspect that more government will do like Belgium and the Netherlands and inject capital directly into their local banks deemed too big to fail.

US Dollar Doomed as Credit Crisis Turning into a Currency Crisis / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Jennifer_Barry

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen the precious metals were smashed out of nowhere and the dollar started climbing this summer I became very worried. I didn't question my conviction that commodities are in a bull market, or that precious metals in particular are undervalued. I felt something sinister was at work. Neither move was justified on a fundamental level. I assumed that something very bad was about to happen and the metals needed to be brought lower in advance of the bad news.

US Dollar Death Ray Powered by Soaring Federal Reserve Bank Credit / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDollar Death Ray , powered by the U.S. Treasury and the Federal Reserve, is aimed at the heart of the U.S. dollar. Forget the U.S. Congress debate of the Bank Bail Out and Congressional Reelection Bill of 2008. The Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury, without a vote of Congress and support of the voters, has given $253 billion to banks in the past week. That is according to the Federal Reserve statement issued yesterday, 2 October. Without any regard for their actions, these two agencies are flooding the U.S. banking system with liquidity in an unprecedented manner.
