US Dollar, Gold , Interest Rates and Crude Oil - Four Sheets / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Jim_Willie_CB

An old expression is often used. Most people remain unaware of its origin. “Joe is three sheets to the wind!” means Joe is stinking drunk, smashed, plastered, intoxicated, inebriated, and who know? he might soon go meet Ralph out back (i.e. vomit). Several years ago, a learned man of letters explained to me the meaning of the phrase, which came from the world of sailing. If a sailor loses control of his sailboat, which could be from heavy imbibing of alcohol (or fishing or reading or man's favorite dance sport), the three main sails are let loose to the wind, flailing thrashing and whirling around, not pulling the boat.

The Aussie Dollar Revisited / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: Mario_Innecco

Three months ago we wrote about the fact that the Aussie dollar had broken through a key technical level in an article entitled Is the Aussie Dollar Ready to Take a Big Hop? . Today as we write the currency from down under is making a seventeen-year high at $0.8476. The 1990 high was at $0.8405 and the next big target will be the 1989 high at $0.8905.

FX Strategies : Canadian Dollar to Still Prevail over Aussie / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Today's decision from China to raise the stamp tax on securities trading to 0.3% from 0.1% is a more direct attempt to cool its runaway stock market than last week's hike in reserve requirements and interest rates. The news was announced in early afternoon NY trade, causing a retreat in US stocks and the higher yielding pairs of EURJPY, GBPJPY, NZDJPY, NZDUSD and USDJPY. The explanation is that such increased transaction costs on equities would raise the likelihood of the much awaited "China correction", thereby triggering a repeat of the domino effect in global equities seen in late February-early March.

Pound VS Dollar Currency Analysis / Currencies / British Pound

By: Submissions

What happened ? We have had an interest rate rise and we have seen an increasing backing for another rise sometime soon.

I am surprised that this has not been bullish for the pound

We have also seen some really benign inflation data coming out in America which would be dollar-negative, so why hasn't there been more pressure on dollar

Head of the Trend: On Politics and Currencies / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Jes_Black

Following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 there was a spike in interest of opposing views generated by the Left and Right where even Hardball with Chris Mathews got parodied on Saturday Night Live because of its surge in popularity.

But polls soon showed a significant drop in interest for mainstream media outlets as independent news sites captured that attention. As the public became educated they then shared their found information with others as the Blogging revolution was born.

Don't Cry for the US Dollar, the Bounce in the Dollar will be Shortlived / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Jim_Willie_CB

The Bretton Woods II principal propaganda plank has been buried, with no fanfare, no eulogy on a moronic indefensible myth chapter. Asia no longer supplies credit to the United States debt monster. That mantle has been accepted by a combination of the Persian Gulf oil producers and the counterfeit press, each showing strain. The transition is truly deadly. Increasingly feisty, if not hostile, sheiks in the hotbed of the Middle East have become the last remaining pillar of USDollar support.

Significant Changes for the Chinese Yuan and Japanese Yen are in the Winds / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Christopher_Laird

With Paulson going to China again, it is time to look at what changes may come for the China manufacturing boom and financial/stock boom if China revalues the Yuan/RMB. Last week, China made some small moves to reign in liquidity, raising interest rates, increasing reserve requirements, and allowing the Yuan/RMB to trade is a wider band. 

These moves are seen as a bit of dressing – in anticipation of Paulson's visit. Clearly, a major topic of that meeting will be to address increasing pressures for US trade sanctions with China. China, on the other hand, has serious problems with their bubbles – notably the stock bubbles – and has already been trying to modestly tighten liquidity for its markets.

The US Dollar Isn't Dead Yet! / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Clif_Droke

To hear the talk from the mainstream press you'd think the dollar's demise was imminent. Everyday is becoming a repetition of a theme that we've actually been hearing off and on since 2004, namely, the collapse of the U.S. dollar. But as we've chronicled here many times in the past, whenever the bearish factor gets a little too loud on the dollar's weakness, a period of stability and/or strength begins. That's exactly the point along the cycle the dollar is in now.

The Decoy of the Falling US Dollar Revisited / Currencies / US Interest Rates

By: Professor_Emeritus

I have received the following letter from a reader of my column:

Mr. Fekete:

I have been reading your work for a number of years and always look forward to your thoughts, particularly when they run counter to conventional wisdom. In your latest piece you suggest that the falling dollar (or rising yen) actually strengthens the yen carry trade. My chartwork argues otherwise, and your logic escapes me. I would welcome clarification of one particular paragraph of yours, especially on the last sentence that, I believe, is central to your analysis. You wrote:

Strong US Dollar is in US Interest / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Axel_Merk

It seems that in order to qualify for the job, U.S. Treasury Secretaries must be able to recite ‘A strong dollar is in the interest of the United States' anytime and anywhere. Robert Rubin, Treasury Secretary during the second half of the 1990s, was highly credible when he said it.

However, when Secretary John Snow uttered the same words, the ritual had been diluted to providing the appropriate sound bite to the media. Hank Paulson, successor to Snow and current Treasury Secretary, is a straight talker, but knows that his job comes with what amounts to a marketing responsibility. In the meantime, investors are at a loss what the U.S. policy towards a dollar truly is; there seems to be a disconnect between what ought to be in U.S. interest, and what current policies promote.

Euro Currency Toast and The Race to Debase, Part II / Currencies / Euro

FOREIGN AFFAIRS magazine just called for the "end of national currency". Maybe it matters.

After all, " Foreign Affairs is the most important and influential journal of international relations in the world," as Cryptogon.com points out.

US Dollar Bear Market 5 / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Zeal_LLC

Adam Hamilton writes : With the headline US stock indexes doing so well this year, they are understandably absorbing trader attention and news coverage like a black hole. It is always exciting to see major new round numbers achieved and new highs carved. But other markets outside of this limelight are not frozen in stasis.

In particular the US dollar, seemingly totally forgotten in the dark shadow the stock markets are casting, has been exceedingly interesting. While you wouldn't know it from the mainstream financial media thanks to very little commentary on it, the US dollar's secular bear market is very much alive and well. In fact today it is on the verge of testing major major new lows.

If the dollar indeed continues on its stealthy downward trajectory and hits these new lows, the implications will probably be profound. Especially for American investors and speculators, the dollar is the linchpin of everything financial. When foreign investors see new dollar lows, will the massive inflows of capital they pump into our financial markets waver? What would this mean for US stocks, bonds, and interest rates?

The Russian Bear, Chinease Dragon, and US Dollar / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Russia and China have become a major problem. Everywhere one turns, there is Russia & China at odds with the United States . We have the Great Bear in a conflict over energy, Iran , military installations, and central bank policy. We have the Great Dragon in a conflict over currency reform, banking reform, copyright enforcement, trade matters, human rights, and central bank policy.

Armed with a combined account of almost $1600 billion, these two giants are in a Battle of Titans with the United States for geopolitical control. With the financial shift to developing nations comes a natural push toward geopolitical control. The USEconomy and USDollar have never been in a weaker position. The bear and dragon know it well, and have taken steps to wrest more power and influence.

Euro Currency toast & the race to debase, Part I / Currencies / Euro

By: Adrian_Ash

"...If you think the Dollar looks weak on the charts, wait 'til you see what's wrong with the Euro..."

SERIOUS ECONOMISTS never much liked the Euro. Then again, serious economists never much bothered to make money from trading. John Maynard Keynes just goes to prove it.

World-famous scourge of both gold and "the long run", Keynes averaged nearly 13% per year trading the funds of Kings College , Cambridge , during the Depression. London 's stock market, meantime, ticked lower by half-a-per cent per annum.

US Dollars Supplied at Will, Courage Hard to Find / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Doug_Wakefield

Doug Wakefield with Ben Hill write: Last weekend, my wife and I went over to a friend's home to watch “The Pursuit of Happyness,” starring Will Smith. During the opening scenes of the movie, Smith's character sits in despair thinking about his own struggles in medical sales, during the recession of 1981, while the television blares in the background with the voice of President Reagan discussing the financial plight of our nation. In this snippet, we hear Reagan talk about the urgent need for our national leaders to face the $50 billion deficit.

Watch the French Elections and Neutral US Payrolls to Target Euro 1.3470 / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Ashraf_Laidi

We mentioned in Thursday morning's note that: "a strong services ISM from the US including a favorable employment index is expected to trigger renewed euro selling towards 1.3570, a break of which could extend to 1.3545-50". Indeed, EURUSD fell from 1.36 to 1.3570 and is now trading at 1.3548, with the low being 1.3547.

This point represents the 38% retracement of the $1.3339-1.3680 move. But we do expect the pair to stabilize back towards the 1.3580s by Friday European trade ahead of US payrolls.
