RESERVE Bank of Australia governor Glenn Stevens says it is reasonable to assume interest rates won't change for "some time" even as the country's robust terms of trade now look even stronger than just a few months ago.

The AUD/USD is sliding as RBA Governor Glenn Stevens signals rates will remain on hold for "some time". Traders had expected Stevens to maintain a hawkish view similar to recent policy statements and while his speech met those expectations, a subsequent question and answer session has weighed on the pair. "There is no anticipation of any change in the cash rate for some time," says Stevens.

Syd 23:45 GMT February 10, 2011
The AUD/USD falls sharply after RBA Governor Glenn Stevens says the Australian central bank is not contemplating a rate rise right now and he doesn't think inflation expectations will rise. The pair is at 1.0003 vs around 1.0037 prior to the speech. "That would certainly be enough to send the Aussie down 30 odd points, which is what has happened this morning," says Ian Fowler, senior corporate dealer with OzForex. Fowler adds, the Aussie was already under pressure due to encouraging U.S. labor market data. "It a combination of people jumping onto the greenback a little bit, gold just retreating just a slight bit and the final piece of the puzzle this morning was Mr. Stevens." Fowler says the pair has solid support at 99.80.

Rising inflation fears in Asia have been at the crux of a recent decline for the AUD/USD, says John Kyriakopoulos, currency strategist with National Australia Bank. Given "the external backdrop for the AUD has worsened a little recently," Kyriakopoulos says RBA Governor Glenn Stevens' testimony at 2330 GMT could give some insight into where inflation in Australia currently sits. The AUD/USD is recently at 1.0038, down from an overnight high of 1.0065. Strategist tips support for the pair at 0.9990/1.0000, with key support at 0.9804.

well gents your guess is equally good as anyone's as crude is a disputable commodity by few.
What I think I know with near-certainty is that crude is not about to cost $20, $10 and especially not $0.0 (as levitation or teletransportation is nowhere near being invented).
Considering that canadian crude currently costs directly approximately 60-65/bbl to extract I will feel comfortable buying price points bellow $80 to accumulate and let it ride. Electrical power is far from becoming mainstream, simple fact that it is primarily govt that is buying this technology testifies to the products current immaturity and thus no threat to crude.

11:10 GMT (Global-View.com) February 10 - I posted this over the weekend (see below) and the eur/usd retreat puts the zero sum game scenario in play although it is a long time until Friday‚Äôs close. The set-up was a stronger dollar ahead of the auction and then giving back its gains after Thursday‚Äôs 30 yr auction. However, the market did not stay focused on the dollar with crosscurrents dominating (note euro crosses).
On Thursday, the eur/usd has so far traded an inside day by 6 pips on the downside and 9 pips on the upside (1.3609-1.3744 Wed range vs. 1.3615-1.3735 Thurs range). Charts show little worth noting between 1.36-1.37 other than the 1.3609-15 two day lows. On the upside, minor intra-day resistance is at 1.3655-60, 1.3680 and 1.3695. This suggests 1.3650 (‚Äú50‚ÄĚ level) will act as a sentiment indicator for the day unless either side of 1.36-1.37 is breached. 1.3691 = daily pivot point.

Aussie is weighed down by mixed employment data today. The headline job growth beat expectation by increasing 24k in January while unemployment rate held steady at 5%, not bad. However, looking into the details, full-time employment dropped by -8k to 8.022m while part-time employment rose by 32k to 3.419m. The data add to speculation that RBA will be cautious in having another rate hike. It's believed that RBA would not raise rate again in Q1. The odds for two hikes this year, as implied by swaps, also dropped slightly after the data. actionfx

The euro may have had a good currency war last time around, but don‚Äôt count on it this time.
In the past, as central banks have accumulated dollar reserves from their intervention to keep their currencies down, they have often diversified these holdings into the euro. In fact, diversification has often been a big force in determining the direction of major currencies.
If anything, the People‚Äôs Bank of China could prove even more aggressive with monetary tightening in the future. However, there is little sign that the bank will allow the hot money flows that higher interest rates will attract to push its currency much higher.

Samah Anwar recommends "nuking" the Egyptian protesters
Egyptian actress Samah Anwar is outraged by protesters in Cairo‚Äôs Tahrir Square to the point that she has called on officials to ‚Äúburn them to the ground because they are destroying Egypt.‚ÄĚ
Mass popular protests against Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak since 25 January may usher in a new leadership in Cairo.
‚ÄúIf the situation required authorities to use fighter planes and nuclear bombs against them, then no time should be wasted in order to save Egypt‚ÄĚ said Samah.
The comments made by Samah provoked harsh attacks against her on the social networking internet website Facebook. People posted comments describing her calls to burn the citizens of her own country as simply brutal and inhumane, and should make people rethink the roles stars play in their lives .
One Facebook commenter said that he used to watch Samah‚Äôs numerous television dramas and plays, but after her inappropriate remarks he has lost all respect.
Many others posted negative criticism about Samah, accusing her of disrespecting the rights of citizens to speak freely.

Stock Market Shrouded in Liquidity Uncertainty
Investors should remain cautious regarding China's stock market as Beijing may change policy at any time over liquidity and inflation concerns. 18.75 trillion yuan increase in bank loans over the 26 months is nearly four times the amount of the loans granted during Zhu's time as premier.
Also, during these 26 months, gross domestic product (GDP) grew by about 152%, while the increase in credit was 358%, which has caused commodity prices to soar rapidly.

The AUD/USD is weakening slightly following the release of the January Australian employment data due to weak full time employment numbers, says ANZ senior dealer Alex Sinton. The Australian Bureau of Statistics says the number of people in full-time work fell 8,000 to 8.02 million in January; Sinton says "we were disappointed by that and basically you have everybody trying to sell the Aussie."
Analysts said the timing of the hike, immediately after the Lunar New Year holiday, would send a strong signal to the market that the central bank was paying close attention to the problem of inflation.
"It is also very likely the January CPI will jump to a fresh high, making it necessary for the central bank to resort to such tools as interest rates hikes to curb inflation," Wang said.
Chu Hau-min, professor of money and banking at Taiwan's Chengchi University, said the rate hike foretold bad news ahead, suggesting that the January CPI figure may be embarrassing for Beijing.
Chu said Taiwan's central bank would very likely follow the PBOC's move.

Euro rises as Fed's Bernanke expects U.S. unemployment rate remains high
Euro rose on Wednesday after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke reiterated U.S. unemployment would remain high together with the fall in U.S. Treasury yields.
Although euro retreated after recovering fm Asian low of 1.3613 to 1.3663 n price fell to an intra-day low of 1.3610 in reaction to the news that Bundesbank chief Axel Weber is not a candidate to succeed European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet, the single currency later rebounded strongly in NY morning after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke started speaking n euro eventually climbed to as high as 1.3745 in late NY session on dlr's broad-based weakness.
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke testified at the House Budget Committee and said U.S. unemployment rate remains too high for policymakers' comfort despite signs of strength in the economic recovery. Bernanke repeated overall inflation 'quite low' n added longer-term inflation expectations have remained stable.
The British pound ratcheted high fm Asian low of 1.6050 to 1.6101 in European morning n although cable retreated to 1.6032 after the release of the biggest deficit on record, price then rebounded strongly to 1.6125 in tandem with the euro in NY morning b4 trading sideways. U.K. global goods trade balance came in at -9.247 bln pounds in December, the biggest deficit on record, against the economists' forecast of -8.60 bln pounds n revised reading of -8.46 bln pound in November. U.K. global non-EU goods trade balance was at -5.82 bln pounds in December, also the biggest deficit on record.
Versus the Japanese yen, the dollar went through another day of choppy trading on Wednesday, price initially ratcheted higher fm Asian low of 82.25 to 82.68 in European morning but selling interest there knocked the usd/jpy pair down n although the greenback rebounded in NY mid-day, the pair then fell to a low of 82.20 in late NY session on dlr's broad-based weakness as U.S. bond yields fell after a solid $24 billion auction of 10-year Treasury notes. Ten-year Treasury note yields were down fm around 3.7% to 3.64%.
Data to be released on Thursday:
Japan domestic CGPI, machine order, Australia unemployment n employment change, Swiss CPI, U.K. industrial production, manufacturing production, BoE rate decision, Canada new housing price, U.S. jobless claims, wholesales inventories, Fed budget.
