A Safe Place for Your Cash... OUTSIDE the U.S. Dollar / Currencies / Canadian $

By: DailyWealth

Dr. Steve Sjuggerud writes: Money flows to where it's treated best... that's one of the surest rules in finance.

And it is key to picking currencies.

Right now, money is treated better in Canada than in just about any other major country on the globe. And with the setup we have today, you could make as much as 27% over the next 12 months.

... Brazil Steps Up Real Intervention; Root Cause of Crisis

It's hard not to laugh at the irony of recent central bank currency actions.

  • After complaining for years about the strength of the Real, the Brazilian central bank stepped up intervention actions hoping to stop a plunge in the currency.

  • Turkey now attempts to attract capital after taking measures for the past four years to stop the flow of money into the country.

Banks Manipulating Trades and Rigging Benchmarks in Foreign Exchange Markets / Currencies / Market Manipulation

By: Jesse

Are there any markets that have not been corrupted by lax regulation and Banks who have been emboldened in their insatiable greed by the lack of effective enforcement of the rules and equal justice for all?

It is somewhat ironic that this news comes on the revelation that Obama is replacing Gary Gensler, Chairman of the CFTC, for being too aggressive in seeking to regulate the Swaps markets and angering some foreign banks (read London trading operations of the big multinational banks). London has become a favored haven for corrupt financial practices.

U.S. Dollar At Risk? Case for Profiting from Managing Currency Risk / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Axel_Merk

The “cleanest” dirty shirt, the U.S. dollar, is down versus the euro so far this year; and was down last year. Yet, S&P, in upgrading the credit outlook of the U.S., cites U.S. dollar strength. If this is a strong dollar environment, are investors prepared for a weak one? With plenty of dirty laundry in the world, we ponder how investors might be able to profit from actively managing currency risk.

Sell the U.S. Dollar? Case for Hard Currencies / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Axel_Merk

The Fed’s “tapering,” the dollar’s up, bonds are down. Is this time to bet on the greenback, or to diversify out of the dollar?  We believe the dollar may not only have gotten ahead of itself, it also rallied for the wrong reasons. Only the future will tell whether this is an opportunity to sell the dollar, but we can look at risks and opportunities presented.

Global Currency Devaluation Derby Where the Biggest Loser Wins / Currencies / Currency War

By: Peter_Schiff

While the world's economies jockey one another for the lead in the currency devaluation derby, it's worth considering the value of the prize they are seeking. They believe a weak currency opens the door to trade dominance, by allowing manufacturers to undercut foreign rivals, and to economic growth, by fighting deflation. On the other side of the coin, they believe a strong currency is an economic albatross that leads to stagnation. But the demonstrable effects of currency strength and weakness reveal the emptiness of their theory.

Gold, US Dollar Index and 3 Currency Market Forecasts / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: David_Petch

This article was posted for the benefit of subscribers on Wednesday, May 15th, 2013. I have included one Elliott Wave count of gold at the very end...it is not important to understand the wave count, just the implied direction, which should be hinted at the US Dollar Index. I was following a pattern for 5 years that changed due to one small thing that happened and was discussed for a few months now. Since it happened, it was a game changer and has important consequences for everything going forward. The Contracting Fibonacci Spiral that I discovered nearly two years ago is approaching its extended time post of May 21st, 2013 and if it extends further, the potential downside will be faster and see a compression in time for what the potential downside is. I would encourage everyone to at least read this article and try to understand the big picture, because it is one of the most important articles I have written in the past two years.

EUR/USD: Bearish Cycles Remains In Play / Currencies / Euro

By: ForexPros

The EUR/USD reversed slightly higher on Thursday from 1.2840 support but not for long. Recovery found resistance very soon, so it was probably just a fourth wave within larger wave 3 down. Our bias remains unchanged and we are looking for a weaker EUR/USD, towards 1.2800 as a next projected target, where we could see a temporary low and a wave 4 pull-back. Short-term critical level is at 1.2935, as wave four must not trade into the territory of a wave one.

US Dollar Ends Another 9 Year Down Cycle / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Recent rallies in Non-USD currencies resulting from poor US data have not lasted long. And those rallies resulting from strong US figures via the indirect effect of rallying equities (risk-on) have not lasted either. Broadening pro-USD sentiment may stay for longer than we had thought as the US dollar index has exited from another 9-year down cycle.

Dollar Crisis, the Coming Collapse of US Global Hegemony / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Pravda

Colin Todhunter writes: The US is bankrupt. Yet Uncle Sam continues to stride the world stage and can simply print more money to get by because the dollar is the world's reserve currency. Remove it as the reserve currency, and the US will no longer be able to remain supreme or fund its wars by relying on what would then be a worthless paper currency. Today, more than 60 percent of all foreign currency reserves in the world are in US dollars, and the US will attempt to prevent countries moving off the dollar by any means possible.

U.S. Dollar Collapse and Japan’s Sham Currency War / Currencies / Currency War

By: Matthias_Chang

US$ dollars have been flooding the financial markets ever since Bernanke launched quantitative easing allegedly to turnaround the US economy. These huge amounts of US$ toilet paper are mainly in financial markets (and in central banks) outside of the United States. A huge chunk is represented as reserves in central banks led by China and Japan.

If truth be told, the real value of the US$ would not be more than a dime and I am being really generous here, as even toilet paper has a value.

Don't Bet Against a Surging U.S. Dollar / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Money_Morning

Ben Gersten writes: In the midst of a brewing currency war, Japan's out-of-control monetary policy has caused the yen to fall to an almost five-year low against the U.S. dollar.

With an economy one-third the size of that of the United States, Japan has committed itself to a fiscal program that's almost double the U.S. Federal Reserve's current $85- billion a month stimulus.

Japanese Government Green Light to Crush Yen, How High Will U.S. Dollar Fly? / Currencies / Japanese Yen

By: Gary_Dorsch

The Wise Sages of Ancient days used to say, “The fate of a Liar, is that nobody believes him, - even when he’s speaking the truth!” Such is the predicament of Japan’s propaganda artists, including the Prime Minister, the Finance minister, and central bank chief, who are all trying to cover-up their boldest scheme yet, to crush the value of the Japanese yen, against the currencies of its major trading partners. On May 11th, the finance chiefs of the Group of Seven (G-7) gave Tokyo the green light to continue with its radical QE scheme, which has already led to a -24% devaluation of the yen against the US-dollar, and a -33% devaluation against the Euro, since market savvy traders first got wind of the plot in late November.

In an age when ruling coalitions of every political stripe distort the truth to promote their self interests, it’s hardly surprising that Japan’s ruling LDP party is steadfastly denying that it’s engaging in a “beggar thy neighbor” devaluation of its currency. By the same token, Tokyo’s fraudulent claim that its economy is still plagued by a negative rate of inflation (deflation), is so wildly at odds with reality that it’s routinely regarded with cynicism and disbelief.

USD/JPY Could Be In Final Stages Of An Uptrend / Currencies / Japanese Yen

By: ForexPros

The USD/JPY broke higher last week, out of a triangle pattern that we have been tracking since mid-April. This triangle has been placed in wave four, so we must be aware of a bearish reversal in the next few days/weeks; this type of patterns always occurs prior to the final move of the larger trend. So current leg up should be our final leg; most-likely wave 5 of an ending diagonal.

Dollarize Argentina Now / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Steve_H_Hanke

Argentina is once again wrestling with its long-time enemy, inflation. Now, it appears history may soon repeat itself, as Argentina teeters on the verge of another currency crisis.

As of Tuesday morning, the black-market exchange rate for Argentine pesos (ARS) to the U.S. dollas (USD) hit 9.87, meaning the peso’s value now sits 47.3% below the official exchange rate. This yields an implied annual inflation rate of 98.3%.

Why Now's a Good Time to Invest in the Chinese Yuan Currency / Currencies / China Currency Yuan

By: Money_Morning

Ben Gersten writes: It's only a matter of time before the U.S. dollar loses its more than 50-year reign as the world's dominant reserve currency, and it will be replaced by the Chinese yuan.

From January 2012-January 2013, transactions in yuan grew 171% in value, moving the yuan ahead of the Russian ruble to 13th place in global currency payments, up from 20th last year.
