Sell Gold
Entry: Target: Stop:

Exchange operator CME hikes margins on silver futures, effective after the close of business Friday, following a volatile trading session that saw the precious metal tumble 7.3% to $16.758 an ounce, the biggest one-day decline since June 2013. Investors now will have to put up $7,920 per contract for delivery within the next four months when putting on new bets. That’s an 11% increase from the current level. The Fed’s relatively upbeat take on the U.S. economy in its statement on Wednesday hammered precious-metals, which tend to perform well when investors are wringing their hands. Gold slid 2.4% to $1,254.60 an ounce. Higher margins make wagers on the direction of prices less lucrative. That can squeeze out investors already holding losing positions, and the general aim is to discourage excessive risk-taking

AceTrader Jan 30: Intra-Day News and Views (USD/JPY) & data to be released today

30 Jan 2015 01:33GMT

USD/JPY - ..... Reuters reported earlier Japan's core consumer inflation slowed for a 5th straight month in December hit by collapsing oil prices, keeping the central bank under pressure to meet its ambitious 2% inflation target.

But factory output rose 1.0% in December helped by a much-awaited rebound in exports n manufacturers expect to increase production in January, boding well for an economy emerging from recession.
The pick-up in output backs up the BoJ's argument that a solid economic recovery will help accelerate inflation toward its target early next year, although oil price falls will continue to weigh on inflation in the short run.

The gov't raised its assessment on output to say it is "picking up moderately." In the previous month, it said output was flat.
Japan's economy slipped into recession in the 3rd quarter of last year as exports failed to pick up n last Apr's sales tax hike cooled consumer spending.

Analysts expect the economy to have expanded an annualised 3.2% in Oct-Dec as the tax-hike pain subsides, a Reuters poll showed.
In a sign the recovery will be fragile, however, household spending fell 3.4% in the year to December, separate data showed on Friday, more than a median market forecast.

Yesterday despite dlr's brief bounce from 117.88 to 117.16 in NY morning after the release of lower-than-expected U.S. jobless claims, selling interest below European high of 117.18 capped such gain there n price later retreated to 117.83.
The U.S. Department of Labor said the number of individuals filing for initial jobless benefits in the week ending January 24 decreased by 43K to a seasonally adjusted 265K from the previous week's total of 308K. Market had expected U.S. initial jobless claims to decline by 8K to 300K last week.

Friday will see the release of Japan's Unemployment Rate, All Household Spending, CPI, Industrial output, Construction orders, Housing Starts, Australia's PPI, France's Producer Prices, KOF indicator, Italy's Unemployment Rate, Producer Prices, U.K.'s Gfk Consumer Confidence, Mortgage Approvals, euro zone's Unemployment Rate, Inflation ex Food & Energy, Canada's GDP, U.S. PCE, Chicago PMI, University of Michigan Sentiment.

DJ Homeowner Rate Falls To A Level Seen In '94
Syd 01:29 GMT 01/30/2015
The U.S. homeownership rate fell to its lowest level in 20 years at the end of 2014 -- a level last seen when national leaders embarked on a broad push to expand homeownership in the mid-1990s.

Estimates published Thursday show that, after adjusting for seasonal factors, 63.9% of U.S. households owned their homes in the fourth quarter, a rate last recorded in 1994, according to the Commerce Department. Homeownership hasn't fallen below that level since 1988. The rate stood at 65.1% at the end of 2013.

The sharp drop over the past year reflects, in part, a substantial increase in household formation, which is good for the economy. That can cause the homeownership rate to fall if more of those households rent, which is what happened over the past year.

The report showed that household formation grew over the past year at the fastest pace since 2005, according to J.P. Morgan Chase, which could indicate that an improving economy is finally encouraging more young Americans to strike out on their own.

The homeownership rate has fallen steadily since 2005, when it peaked at 69.2%. That followed a decadelong campaign to expand homeownership, launched by President Bill Clinton in 1995 and embraced by President George W. Bush in the early 2000s.

Rampant real estate speculation and loose lending standards inflated housing bubbles across the country, and when prices collapsed, millions of Americans faced foreclosure.

Over the past year, President Barack Obama and other administration officials have voiced alarm that lending has gone from one extreme during the bubble -- too loose -- to the other -- too tight -- in the aftermath of the bust.

Officials have walked a fine line to prevent a return of the reckless loan products and practices that allowed the bubble to inflate while loosening some standards elsewhere to provide broader access to home buyers without strong credit or big down payments.

Talking Points:
Euro Unlikely to Find Potent Catalyst in Weak German Inflation Figures
Swiss Franc Pressured, NZ Dollar and Yen in Corrective Mode Overnight
See Economic News Directly on Your Charts with the DailyFX News App
January’s preliminary set of German CPI figures headlines the economic calendar in European trading hours. The benchmark year-on-year inflation rate is expected to slip into negative territory for the first time since September 2009, when price growth was crafting a bottom in the aftermath of the Great Recession. While the outcome will serve to support the case for aggressive monetary stimulus, its impact on the Euro may prove limited. Mario Draghi and company have just unveiled a sizable QE program and have surely moved to wait-and-see mode, at least for now. That means another soft CPI print will mean relatively little for forward-looking policy bets, offering little impetus for FX volatility.
The Swiss Franc underperformed in overnight trade, sliding as much as 0.8 percent on average against its leading counterparts. A singular, clearly-defined catalyst for the move was not readily apparent. The SNB is due to report on it’s the allocation of its FX reserves tomorrow, which may help investors gauge how officials might go about dealing with CHF495 billion in holdings accumulated as part of maintaining the now-defunct EURCHF floor. Elsewhere, a worrisome Business Times article warned of on-coming capital flight from Swiss banks that opt to pass on SNB-imposed negative rates to clients.
The New Zealand Dollar corrected higher having slumped following a dovish RBNZ monetary policy announcement. The central bank backed off hawkish rhetoric presented in December, saying it expected to keep borrowing costs on hold “for some time” and conspicuously noted that future adjustments can take rates “either up or down”, seemingly opening the door for easing. Indeed, the markets’ priced-in 12 month RBNZ outlook now stands at its most dovish in over three years, with traders leaning toward at least one 25bps reduction. The Japanese Yen retraced downward having bested all of its G10 FX counterparts in the prior session.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen on Thursday offered an upbeat assessment on the U.S. economy in a meeting with Senate Democrats, even as she noted risks from overseas, according to media reports.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia told reporters after a private luncheon with Yellen that she said "things are going well" for the U.S. economy.

"She feels the economy is strong, a lot is good," Manchin said, according to the Journal.

New York Senator Chuck Schumer told Bloomberg: "Her message is that the economy’s getting better but there’s still a ways to go in terms of job creation.

"That worry seems, in her mind, to be paramount and that's why she is not going to raise rates immediately," he said.

someone posted an article about Japanese Margin traders hitting the highest level of $Yen longs on record last week

+ you can see that yesterday .. really we had a chance to roll over on that and close below 117.40 and run lower into the end of the week

but with no follow though stock weakness - a $30 fall in Gold and now we start the slow grind higher to pay off their positions.

I wish it was more technical in nature -- but just seems the BOJ has no interest in destroying the market like the SNB did.

As far as AUD goes -- you have to imagine this sort of relentless selling is from Russian Reserves based on Oil + Gold falls.

I just don't see a Rate Cut as necessary with the market doing the RBA's work for it -- but with this sort of momentum you don't stand in front of trains short term.

No bet on the horses No 15-18% spread, more like 1.5% thanks.
Saying it can go to 100 or 20 is just fodder. Either way, I'm fine. Tactically scaling in without frantic efforts. Will hedge when appropriate. Russia has been keenly smart to accumulate so much gold and globally one of the lowest and richest producers of crude oil and other natural resources. Let the West play checkers. I'll play chess.

just looked at a couple of camo buckets that offer. you are getting a spread of about 0.15 to 0.30 and cost/paid is 12-15/15-18%.
problem with it is that it can easily go to 100 first. you may as well bet on the horses. and they want oil down further so risk is against the ruble for now.
