US Dollar Index Elliott Wave Analysis and Forecast / Currencies / Forecasts & Technical Analysis

By: David_Petch

Today's report is about analysis of the US Dollar Index. Fibonacci time extensions of two different waves are shown midway on the chart and Fib price retracements of the most recent decline from November till December shown on the right hand side. The 61.8% retracement level was strong resistance, which sent the index down to test the 38.2% retracement level. The lower 55 MA Bollinger band is rising, with the upper 55 MA BB declining.

This suggests we can expect to see the USD chopping sideways for 5-10 days before a sharp decline occurs. There is a Fib cluster around March 20 th , suggestive that a bottom in the USD looms around this date. Short-term stochastics have the %K beneath the %D, with another 3-4 weeks at a minimum before a bottom is in place.

Zero Degrees of US Dollar Seperation / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Jim_Willie_CB

The last several months have provided a keen lesson in currency defense by a nation which has been written off in many circles as owning a dead and hopeless currency. Some key inter-related feedback loops have been on my radar, each vitally important and changing, which underscore in my viewpoint how major markets are inseparable, each inter-connected, and integrally important if the USDollar is to avoid a much deserved crash. A quip of mine at a conference one year ago centered on my claim that the USDollar was backed by the full force of the US Military.

While true in some respect, the actual defense day to day entails a green triangle not to be confused by the iron triangle which fortifies the Pentagon funding, namely the US Congress, the defense contractors, and the lobbyists when grease the funding wheels. Complementing this death grip which has contributed over decades to do irreparable harm to the USDollar, the green triangle consists of holding down gold in a straight jacket, and holding down crude oil in a giant clamp. Never stated is its purpose to reinforce the USDollar from its implied inverse leverage device as hedge funds run for cover. The greenback and gold shine in opposite directions. The greenback and crude oil flow in opposite directions. Goldman Sachs has been at the controls on most of the master machinery.

Dollar Requires Valentines Lift from Bernanke - Currencies Analysis / Currencies / Forecasts & Technical Analysis

By: Ashraf_Laidi

The dollar selloff of the past 2 days is reaching key support levels, which would only stabilize from an upbeat testimony by Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke.

We expect Fed chairman Ben Bernanke's testimony to offer a vital dose of support for the dollar as his message should not only reiterate the upbeat tone of the last FOMC statement, but also reflect the particularly hawkish remarks from Fed officials last Friday.

The US Dollar will Crash during 2007 due to $8.6 trillion debt / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Mike_Whitney

“Whatever future developments may prove to be, my best guess is that the US will continue to maintain a facade of Constitutional government and drift along until financial bankruptcy overtakes it.” Chalmers Johnson, “Empire V. Democracy: Why Nemesis is at our Door”

Every time a US Dollar is traded, a check is issued on an account that is overdrawn by $8.6 trillion. (That is the present size of the national debt) It is, without question, the biggest swindle in history. Flimsy sheets of faded-green scrip are eagerly exchanged for costly goods and services without any regard for the real value of the currency.

Rising Crude Oil and G7: Yen Strength or US Dollar Weakness ? / Currencies / Forecasts & Technical Analysis

By: Ashraf_Laidi

The dollar's technical outlook has taken a turn to the worse on a combination of aggressive pre-G7 currency talk favoring yen stability and an 18% increase in oil prices over the past 3 weeks.

Oil Rebound as Fast as Past Decline
An 18% rise over a 3-week period is as significant as a 20% decrease over a 4-week period (oil's decline from mid December to mid January), but oil's rebound has not yet made it to the front pages as it is "only" at 4 week highs, which is not as "spectacular" as 18-month lows - seen in mid January. But the magnitude of the current rebound is comparable to the prior declines. The significance of the recent oil increase is such that US consumers may start to struggle in spending their way to an economic soft landing and keeping intact the Goldilocks scenario (neither too hot nor too cold). A prolonged slowdown in US housing would raise risks of a double whammy for the US economy, especially at a time, when US manufacturing deepens in a recession.

Market Wrap - US Dollar / Currencies / Forecasts & Technical Analysis

By: Douglas_V_Gnazzo

The US Dollar was up versus the Euro and Yen last week, supposedly based on the speculation that the Federal Reserve will not lower interest rates anytime soon, choosing instead to keep them steady and unchanged. The US Dollar index was down 0.4% for the week, closing out at 84.95. The British pound gained versus the dollar based on speculation that the Bank of England will raise interest rates to slow the economy down, which is expanding at a faster pace then the BOE feels safe with regarding inflationary pressures.

The Yen Carry Trade is alive and well, at least for the moment. The market is short yen meaning it is betting it will fall. The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission reported that net shorts rose to a record 173,005 from the prior record of 164,860 the week before.

Currency Market Forecast - Further Aussie Dollar (AUD) Unwinding Ahead due to softer Inflation / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Ashraf_Laidi

This week's softer than expected consumer inflation figures from Australia have eroded chances of a February rate hike and may have finally concluded the 4 ½ year old tightening cycle adopted by the Reserve Bank of Australia, which lifted interest rates from 4.25% to 6.25%. The headline CPI slowed to 3.3% in y/y in Q4 from 3.9% in Q3, undershooting expectations of a 3.6% reading. Although the core CPI (excluding volatile items) edged up to 2.7% from 2.6%, the seasonally adjusted weighted median CPI slipped to 3.0% from 3.2%. Markets were especially caught off guard by the 0.1% decline q/q, which was the first decrease in 8 years. The soft CPI report was clearly a result of falling energy and commodity prices, which triggered a 12.4% drop in gasoline costs and a 5.2% in fruit prices. But the report was instrumental in dampening probabilities of a February rate hike from as much as 80% to less than 15%.

Turmoil in the currency markets as US builds up crude oil stocks - foretell Iran strike ? / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Light sweet crude is down 20 cents at $54.80 per barrel, after Tuesday's $2.48 jump to $55.04 on reports that the US Dept of Energy will purchase 100K barrels of oil per day starting next spring. While the decision is part of the Bush Administration's latest commitment to reduce US dependency on imported oil, the aggressive approach on beefing up SPR may reflect heightened possibility of a US military strike against Iran as early as March or April, at a time when US navy ships are piling up in the Persian Gulf. Yesterday, markets were filled with chatter of a Kuwait-based newspaper article reporting that the US will launch a military strike on Iran before April 2007, citing "reliable sources".

According to the article, the strikes will be launched from US ships with Patriot missiles guarding all oil-producing countries in the region. The attacks would be planned in April, the last month of British PM Blair in office. The immediate result of such an attack is a protracted run up in oil prices, which could reach the $70 per barrel mark in less than a week.

Currency Forecasts - Effects of Supplying Oil and Military Troops / Currencies / Forecasts & Technical Analysis

By: Ashraf_Laidi

The 17% decline in oil prices so far this year has recalibrated the FX equation in so far as bolstering expectations of a US consumer-led stability to act as a stabilizer to housing's downside risks. This has considerably diminished chances of a March Fed cut and manifested itself across European and Asian currencies. The role of oil's rebound has been such that it took center stage in FX markets, shadowing a string of positive economic data from the Eurozone and the UK. Aside from freeing US consumers' wallets, falling oil prices have reduced the Sep-Nov trade deficit by over 17%, which is likely to contribute as much as 0.7% to Q4 GDP.

Will China lead a Stampede out of the US Dollar ? / Currencies / Analysis & Strategy

By: Gary_Dorsch

The $2 trillion per day foreign exchange market never sleeps. Yet for the past six months, the big-3 central banks, the Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, and the Bank of Japan managed to lull the currency markets into a deep trance. Since last May, the big-3 central banks corralled the US dollar to within a 3% to 5% trading range against the British pound, the Euro and Japanese yen.

The big-3 central banks utilized their three major weapons, (1) relentless jawboning, (2) Japanese threats of intervention, and (3) coordinated rate hikes, telegraphed far in advance to avoid any nasty surprises in the markets. But the big-3’s spell-binding magic act began to wind down on November 25th, when Chinese deputy central banker Wu Xialong jolted the foreign currency markets, warning other Asian central bankers of the future risk of a US dollar devaluation.

US Dollar tumbles against most major currencies falling to historic lows against the British Pound and the Euro / Currencies / Strategic News

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The dollar hits new lows against several major currencies, plunging to 1.96 Dollars to the British Pound, 1.33 Dollars to the European Euro, and to 115.5 Japanese Yen to the Dollar. The recent downtrend has been developing since early October, since when US interest rate expectations of further rises have shifted to a possibility of cuts in the new year in the face of a slowing economy on the back of a slump in the US housing market.

The downtrend was recently further reinforced by the outcome of the US election and rumors that the Chinease were planning on significantly diversifying their reserves away from the dollar, including comments made by the Governor of the Chinease Central bank as implying as such.

By: Sarah_Jones

The statement by the Chinese central bank governor Zhou Xiaochuan on Thursday that 'China has a clear plan to diversify its $1 trillion foreign exchange reserves and is considering various options to do so', sends the dollar reeling in response.

The diversification comment made by Zhou, was in retaliation to Democratic US Senator Schumer an leading US-China trade/currency critic's celebratory comments following the Democrats election victories. Senator Schumer, has been pushing for tariffs on Chinese goods amid charges it artificially keeps an undervalued yuan to make exports cheap. Along with others, Schumer wants a 27.5 percent levy on imports from China

How does the US Dollar Defy the Law of Gravity ? / Currencies / Analysis & Strategy

By: Gary_Dorsch

Trading in foreign exchange is akin to judging a reverse beauty contest. The trick is to buy the “least ugly” currency at the right time. Nearly every central bank is engaging in some sort of manipulation of its currency, from outright intervention in the marketplace, such as in Brazil and China, to pumping up the money supply to inflate local stock markets, such as in Australia, China, England, the Euro zone, and India. Other central banks engage in “verbal jawboning” to keep traders in check.
 
Central banks are key players in the $2 trillion-a-day currency market, and traders are always on the lookout for signals that central banks are diversifying their FX reserves away from the US dollar. Global central bank reserves have more than doubled to $4.9 trillion in just three years, with particular focus on the massive US dollar stockpiles built up by Asian central banks, which could be switched into other currencies such as the Euro, Japanese yen, British pound, or Gold.
