Switzerland Wins As Its Central Bank Surrenders / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Peter_Schiff

If anyone had any doubt how severely the global economy has been distorted by the actions of central bankers, the "surprise" announcement last week by the Swiss National Bank (SNB) to no longer peg the Swiss franc to the euro should provide a moment of crystal clarity. The decision sent the franc up almost 30% in intraday trading, a scale of movement that is unprecedented for a major currency in the modern era. Although very few in the media or on Wall Street fully understand the ramifications, the situation that forced the Swiss to abandon the peg will soon be faced by bankers of much larger countries in the coming years, the implications of which can have more profound implications for global financial markets.

Bitcoin Price Still in a Bearish Environment / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: no speculative positions.

The price of Bitcoin is not all that matters in the Bitcoin community. Developments in the protocol and particularly in the ease-of-use and security departments are extremely important, in our opinion, for the success of the cryptocurrency. A new feature for the Bitcoin system, called Bitcoin Box, has recently come out. This is a kind of terminal that allows to process Bitcoin transaction without the access to the Internet, we read on CoinDesk:

The Swiss Release the Kraken! / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: John_Mauldin

“Below the thunders of the upper deep,
Far far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee….

“There hath he lain for ages, and will lie
Battening upon huge sea-worms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.”

Switzerland Frees the Swiss Franc / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Frank_Hollenbeck

You can fix your currency or you run independent monetary policy. But you cannot do both at the same time. In spectacular fashion, the Swiss government finally capitulated and decided control over the money supply was more important than a fixed rate against the euro. The Swiss franc rocketed up 30 percent in value minutes after the central bank’s decision to let the currency float.

What About the Russian Ruble? / Currencies / Russia

By: Steve_H_Hanke

The Russian ruble ended 2014 in bad shape. Not as bad as the Ukrainian hryvnia or the Venezuelan bolivar, but bad, nevertheless. For most of 2014, Russia faced an ever-increasing ratcheting up of economic sanctions. These set the stage for what was to come late in the year: the collapse of oil prices and the announcement on November 10th that the ruble would be allowed to float. When combined, these three ingredients created a perfect storm.

Bitcoin Price Pause in the Decline Might Be Close / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: no speculative positions.

Another slide in the price of Bitcoin, another day of more negative news on the cryptocurrency. Quite interestingly, we saw the "Bitcoin crash" news on the main page of the New York Times' Dealbook. The article "As Bitcoin's Price Slides, Signs of a Squeeze" also made it into the "Most Viewed" section of the website. In the piece, we read:

The price of Bitcoin slid further on Tuesday, dipping to its lowest level since the spring of 2013. The downward spiral, which began early last year, suggests that confidence in the virtual currency may be dwindling.

EURUSD and GBPUSD Intraday Elliott Wave Analysis / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: Gregor_Horvat

EURUSD is higher after worse than expected Retail Sales data in the US. USD sold-off across the board, in-line with US stocks in pre-market trading while metals found a support. Well, EURUSD turned up from a new low, that could be treated as a low of a fifth wave. But we always have to try to label the wave count so that we stay with a trend, which is still down. Also, another thing is that red wave 5) would be very small which would not be so typical if we consider that red impulsive red waves 1) and 3) were much larger. With hat said, I suspect that EURUSD is still making either a flat correction in red wave 4) or a triangle if price will stay sideways.

Bitcoin Price in Tense Territory / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

We read on Reuters that BitStamp had confirmed their exchange would go online during the day today:

Bitstamp, one of the largest exchanges for the digital bitcoin currency, said it would resume trading later on Friday after suspending operations because of a security breach on Sunday.

Bitstamp had suspended its service after the breach resulted in the loss of around 19,000 bitcoins with a value of some $5 million.

Behold the US Dollar Bull Market / Currencies / US Dollar

By: David_Petch

The purpose of this article is to illustrate the continuous strength of the US Dollar from back in September 2014 and how we are not even at the half way point yet for this current move. The US Dollar Index is thought to be in a bull market for another 5-7 years, so as analysis will show today, the top in the US Dollar appears to be setting up for mid-term top this coming September, rather than November as previously reported.

Euro is in Free Fall / Currencies / Euro

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

The Euro appears to be in free-fall as Greece threatens to exit the Euro (GREXIT). The question is, who has the most leverage and who will be hurt the most if a default on Greek bonds is made?.

There are 20 days left until the Greek general election, which corresponds nicely to a Primary (panic) Cycle coming to a close at the end of January. A Master Cycle low is also due then, possibly Intermediate Wave (3).

Bitcoin Price Down 12 Percent Already 2015 – Cyber Attack On Major Exchange / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: GoldCore

2015 has not started well for bitcoin with prices having fallen 12%, from $320 to $288. The cyber attack on a leading bitcoin exchange is the latest challenge for the fledgling digital currency.

Bitstamp, Europe’s leading bitcoin exchange – and third largest globally – has been off-line following a breach in their system by hackers on Sunday night. The UK based company has suspended lodgements and withdrawals and reported that roughly $5.1 million, around 19,000 BTC, had been ‘lost.’  The revelation follows the disclosure that Bitstamp’s wallet system has been compromised, prompting it to halt deposits and later shut down its platform entirely according to Coin Desk.

Briefly: short speculative positions, stop-loss at $312, take-profit at $203.

BitStamp, one of the popular Bitcoin exchanges, posted an update on its website, giving customers more information on the recent security breach and its consequences:

We have temporarily suspended Bitstamp services. Bitstamp customers can rest assured that their bitcoins held with us prior to temporary suspension of services on January 5th (at 9am UTC) are completely safe and will be honored in full.

Are Central Banks Dumping Euros? / Currencies / Euro

By: Ashraf_Laidi

The euro began the first full trading week of 2015 by breaking below the $1.20 level for the first time in four years to end up hitting a nine-year low of $1.1864. The latest reasons of the renewed slump are rising probability that the Greek anti-bailout left alliance will win the Jan 25 elections, a combination of apparent tolerance from German Chancellor Merkel over the possibility of a Greek exit and emerging consensus that even if outright QE of euro sovereign bonds were agreed upon by the European Central Bank, the plan would fail to ridding the Eurozone from deflation.

2015 – Is the Aussie Dollar Going Down ? / Currencies / Austrailia

By: Submissions

Badre Bouarich writes: At a time where oil prices are hitting the ground driven by a high supply - low demand environment, several market actors are getting to expect a depreciation of the so called commodity currencies. As defined by the financial dictionary ( ) and studied by IMF Senior Economists ( ), commodity currencies are currencies whose exchange rate is highly correlated to the price of a commodity.

Currency Wars / Currencies / Currency War

By: Frank_Hollenbeck

The current Japanese monetary printing orgy and European Central Bank threats of massive QE are both aimed at primarily boosting exports to kick start their moribund economies. The yen has dropped nearly 12% against the dollar since the Japanese announcement in October and the Euro has dropped over 10% against the dollar in the last six months.

The Great Fallacy at the Heart of Modern Monetary Theory / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Jesse

As with all theories that miss the mark, Modern Monetary Theory presents some insights into the matter of course, but seems to hinge on one or two key assumptions that are more matters of assertion than historical or even practical experience. It is founded not so much an economic theory, but on a belief without a firm foundation.

BitMEX, a Bitcoin derivatives exchange will post a Bitcoin volatility index, which will be a measure of the magnitude of change in the price of the cryptocurrency, we read on CoinDesk:

Derivatives exchange BitMEX will publish an index on 5th January that it hopes will become the bitcoin world's version of the VIX– the so-called 'fear index' that is used to gauge uncertainty in the wider financial markets.

Bitcoin Price Could Move Down / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: no speculative positions.

Looking back at Bitcoin in 2014, we see that this was not a kind year for the currency, at least not in terms of the price. Bitcoin has gone down some 50% (!) since the beginning of the year or some 70% (!) since December 2013. Not particularly encouraging results, and even Bitcoin-focused websites make mention of them. On CoinDesk, we read:

If the story of bitcoin in 2013 was its meteoric rise in price, which saw it hit a peak of over $1,100 in November, then the tale of bitcoin's price this year is one of plummeting from those heights.
