While market to stay watchful on CNY over China holidays, some say given bouts of similar speculation past 12 months, latest rumors may also fade: FX trader at big Japan bank in U.S. says while he's been "very skeptical" in past about constant ebbs, flows in speculation, recent comments from U.S., China make him believe "something is in the air"; but at same time, likely result is "token move" of 3-5% next 3 months. IDEAglobal's Sean Callow says while talk of CNY revalue "far exceeds anything seen over the last three years" IDEAglobal still believes there won't be early move from China

It will be a testing week for AUD, with key events and data to shape medium-term direction, says David Mozina, currency strategist at ABN AMRO. Says RBA is likely to keep rates steady for an extended period, likely to reverse course over a 12-18 month horizon. Despite AUD's pop higher Friday, levels above 0.7800 should be seen as good levels to sell, he says, with retail trade data likely to be weak, trade data likely to be nasty, both weighing on AUD this week. But talk of a CNY revaluation anytime soon will limit damage, he says, though ABN doesn't think CNY revaluation will come till 2H05.

Interest rate expectations have dwindled rapidly with 10% of economists surveyed by Dow Jones predicting May rate hike. Only two of 20 economists surveyed expect rate hike, both predicting 25 bps rise; previous survey, before April board meeting, found 57% expected 25 bps hike; since RBA held off rate move in April, 1Q consumer price index hinted inflationary pressure easing, prompting rethink of rate-hike expectations.

Japanese news paper reported that this summer all Japanese government employees including PM are not going to dress to work in order to minimize or stop the usage of any air condition unit - to reduce the air pollution and save energy.

Marketwise impact;
1) Oil price down further.
2) underwears and T-shirts sales up.

Lets look at this in context Berkshire Hathaway's position equates to less than 5% of China's FX reserves. It is also equivalent to 10 days of the US current account deficit.
It is nothing compared to what US Inc. has probably stored in China pending a revaluation.
If you are the treasurer of a US company with Chinese manufacturing base, you would leave as much money in China pending the revaluation. For the last eighteen months the FX market has concentrated on a revaluation of teh reniminbi. It is a low risk strategy going long reniminbi short USD. But when the reval dows occur there will be a flood of money into the US locking in teh FX profit.
So what about other currencies. For most speculators Asian currencies have been the conduit to position ahead of the decision.
Reconsider what occurred after the Australian and NZ floats in the mid 80's.
The Aussie market anticipated a revaluation it got a float, the AUD then fell initially as the hot money was repatriated, the NZD was positioned differently, it rose initially after the float.
What I am saying is, if history is anything to go by, don't expect those currencies that have been used as a renminbi proxy to behave as expected after the float.

wd also add the missing part re Buffet

That bet backfired in the first quarter, and even now it costs about 5 percent fewer dollars to buy euros than on Dec. 31. Berkshire's currency bets had in the fourth quarter generated a $1.63 billion gain.

Almost sure the market will go after him now.

It is better Buffet will begin studies of wave count, as CBs may be after his stake and the others who followed him.

German bond flop heralds Euro crisis
Allister Heath
May 1, 2005 12:00 AM (GMT)
SOMETHING significant happened to the euro zone economy last week.

In an ominous sign that the markets are cutting their growth forecasts for the region and perhaps even pricing in a greater risk of deflation, yields on 10-year German government bonds collapsed to an all-time low of 3.4%. The previous low was recorded in June 2003, at a time of immense gloom for the region.

Long-term nominal interest rates are usually thought to reflect a combination of real growth prospects, inflation expectations and a premium to compensate for default risk. It seems that last week's drop in yields was largely the result of investors finally understanding that Germany is in long-term economic decline.

There has been a little-noticed albeit highly significant change in sentiment about the euro zone. One prominent US economist who attended a conference in Frankfurt last week told The Business that the mood among German, French and other euro zone economists was the worst it has ever been. Even many of the traditional cheerleaders for the region - who talk up prospects to drum up business for their institutions or for patriotic or political reasons - are acknowledging that prospects are poor.

In France, Insee's business-confidence gauge collapsed in April to a reading of 97 from 101 the previous month, its lowest since October 2003. In Germany, the GfK consumer confidence survey for May fell to 4.9 from 5.1; GfK itself has halved its German consumer spending growth forecast for 2005 to a mere 0.4%. German unemployment fell a little, but this was no more than a statistical blip.

If the euro zone is incapable of performing when the global economy is growing at a decent rate - as it is still doing today, despite the current slower patch - then the real question is: what will it do if the rest of the world suffers a bigger downturn or even a recession?

This ought to be of much greater concern to European politicians and the European Central Bank than appears to be the case today.
