Forex Trading Outlook: Will USDJPY Revisit 115?
GVI Forex Blog 23:19 GMT 02/13/2016  - My Profile


Global markets are ending a hectic week with some relief after risk off sentiment gripped it most of the time. This sets the stage for the coming week where the focus will be on the JPY initially and given the firmer close in USDJPY, the BoJ could put on a squeeze if it so chooses. As for risk sentiment, it should continue to be influenced by the correlation between oil-equities-fx (and bonds).

Fed Chair Yellen Opens Up On Policy
dc CB 17:44 GMT 02/13/2016

Every quarter members of the Fed meet with 12 representatives of the U.S. banking industry who comprise the Federal Advisory Council.

We bring this up because according to the just released records from the most recent, February 3, meeting one which came one week ahead of Yellen's congressional tesimony which on both days sent markets into a tailspin because Yellen "was not dovish enough" according to sellside commentary, she was told "the economy is stronger than the recent negative market sentiment would imply."

The above also poses the question: who is it that decides the fate of the Fed's rate hikes - the Fed, or the 12 bankers on its advisory council.

Why Yellen's Testimony Was Not Dovish Enough: Bank CEOs Told Her The 'Economy Is Stronger Than Markets Imply'

Fed Chair Yellen Opens Up On Policy
Livingston nh 15:10 GMT 02/13/2016
John - one of the problems for Yellen and Bernanke was that they missed the time for normalizing rates because they kept fighting the banking crisis long after it passed -- they insist they are trying to expand the economy but continue to use tools (interest rates and Treasury holdings) that have the opposite effect -- The Fed folks see themselves as reacting to conditions when in fact they are the primary cause of the conditions

Low interest rates reduce the cost of holding money - the effect of this is to contract or restrict the growth of NGDP - the degree of this effect depends on the type and maturity of the economy (e.g, the effect in Japan is greater than the effect in the US) - the past three years this policy in conjunction w/the political demand that Banks hold more capital has crippled bank profitability and thereby taxed the transmission process restricting growth of US NGDP and pushed money out of the US into EM, a flow that is being reversed over the last six months

Money supply growth slowed (1%) in late Summer and Autumn but has begun to recover towards 5% -- interest rates in non treasury capital markets are rising at the same time that Treasury yields (MONEY) are at yearly lows -- by maintaining Treasurys on its balance sheet the Fed is usurping fiscal policy (if demand for these instruments is high the Fed should accommodate the demand from its holdings)

I pointed out last week that the interest income in the US has declined at the same time the savings rate has increased - this is a clear signal that the FED's low rate policy has screwed up the economy

If the Fed does not hike rates the economy will continue to sputter -- we will also have a new Fed chairman

john are u pulling a Yellen with the difference being her dependence on data and yours being dependent on her ?
Dudley - her symbiotic twin - yakked that the Fed will take an indefinite pause on rate hikes; Yellen chickened out to say so clearly herself
Bottom Line
the Fed isn’t ready to stop yakking about rate hikes yet - too early for that as Yellens gang is not ready to talk about policy error

JP - another guy w/ the 1937 bogeyman - the Fed was different then, the US monetary regime was still tied to GOLD (but gold had been confiscated) and the FDIC was in place to avoid the seize up of Money Supply -- the Recession had little to do with interest rates; most of the problem in 1937 was fiscal policy

The problem in Japan is the same as it has been for the past 20 years -- Fiscal Policy was not focused on the consumer saving side of the contraction and monetary policy reacted w/ an interest rate policy that was not appropriate to the Japanese savings based economy (nega interest rate may be the last straw before somebody wakes them from this nightmare)

AND 1998 was a classic EM bubble, it's the nature of the BEAST (Soviet Union and the collapse of Empires made it look worse)

These aren't even GOOD analogies

Yellen was her timid self again (I guess nobody asks the Treasury secretary for his dollar view anymore) - Volcker testimony and operations were 180 degrees different

both swissy yen and euro daily charts looking a lot better for usd nxt week. wkly a lot of damage done so usd rebound just a correction for now unless bigger levels taken. would need to see under 11040/50 euro and abv 11585/116 for yen to call usd higher still. s&p likely to move ahead of 1900 nxt week question is will they sell the rally c 1940 or do they double b and move up to 2060 before lower again.

The head of Russia’s Investigative Committee, Aleksandr Bastrykin, has called for the creation of an international coalition of states to fight the “dictatorship” imposed by the US on the rest of the world, and to reject the use the US dollar as a reserve currency.

Speaking at a roundtable in Moscow, Bastrykin said that the world urgently needed a new system of checks and balances that would allow equal representation of all nations on the international political arena.

He said an alliance of countries was needed which could act in concert as “a feasible pole to counter the dictatorship imposed by the Americans together with their Western allies,” according to the minutes of the roundtable

An ambitious plan to end hostilities in Syria with verifiable results within a week, revive the Geneva-3 peace talks, and immediately begin delivering humanitarian aid to civilians has been unveiled in Munich, Germany after talks including the US, Russia, and the UN.

Hostilities in Syria could come to a halt within a week after confirmation by the government of President Bashar Assad and the opposition, according to an official communiqué from the International Syria Support Group (ISSG) meeting.

No one here has commented on it, but one Senator yesterday complained about the muddled messages coming out of the Fed. Yellen seemed ready for the comment and said that the policy at the central bank is for Fed members to indicate when they are speaking for themselves and when they are talking about Fed policy.

I am now watching anything these guys say to see if their behavior has changed. If they start to toe a party line rather than freelancing it, their comments could become useful for trading as they once were.

10:50 (US) Fed's Dudley (Voter, Dove): Turmoil in market mostly tied to overseas events and not US economy - Q&A

- if financial conditions tighten, Fed takes that into account
- difficult to tell how much market turmoil recently is based on market fundamentals- still expects to meet inflation target in the longer term but it will be slow going
- seen dollar weaken a bit in recent weeks
- completely agrees wtih Chairwoman Yellen's assessment of policy environment
- won't commit on rate decisions because data could change before March meeting; recent events will factor into March decision
- policy decisions overseas will not have much impact on US economy, negative rates abroad have only small effects on the US economy
- Talk of negative rates for the US is premature, not spending a lot of time thinking about it, there are many other actions the Fed would take before resorting to negative rates
- US banks are in good shape; not concerned about bank stock weakness
