only 11% of US oil comes from middle east

San Roque CK 23:41 GMT January 21, 2004 Reply   
After watching the state of the union address last nite and listening to dubba's words of wisdom of a democratic and middle east, im starting to think that the OPEC producing countries which are autocratic monarhies have announced that oil production will not increase after there meeting in Feb, thus firing a shot across the bows of the US administration. That the shouldnt bite the hand that feeds them or in this case, the petrol pump that makes there cars go.

Plus OPEC countries do not favour getting paid in $ when there expenses are in local currencies including euro's.

Now if oil is the life blood of an american economic recovery and low priced oil is the vacine to any inflation, why arent more people concerned with the spiralling cost of oil.

US reserves are at 15 yr lows.

IS there more politics than economics at play here? Or am i confused?

Ge11Ja 22:45 / beware of DJIA, some duds (that went close to zero in practical terms), are no longer part of the index. For wider scope on market pulse consider the SnP500, currently frolicking the 50% retracement in this ""wealth-effect"ed" sucker's rally in a bear market. In answer to your Q, the usd would be even lower had it not been for foreign CB's filling the hole that private investment flows into US paper are leaving.

USD managed to hold pivotal zones I mentioned earlier today (EUR/USD - 1.2675-00, USD/JPY -106.30-60). Currently dollar does not look bad and I find EUR/USD shorts here 1.2640-70 and 1.2740-75 if seen reasonable for return back to 1.2450-00 initially.

Good luck

This is from a RTRS (public via the web) report on Cheney's attendance at the Davos World economic Summit.

The vice president will have no new message on the steady weakening of the U.S. dollar against the euro, the senior official said. "There's no change in policy. ... We feel very good about where the economy is," he said.

The dollar's slide has sparked concern in Europe that it could stifle a European economic recovery by making exports to the United States too expensive.

GA TJ - are you only trading in the morning? (That's how I trade, starting @ 7:30).
Last 2 months my system returned about 700 pips (touched 800 pips profit, then went down) on just EURO/USD, wich I consider quite good, considering that everyone else selling signals makes 200 to 500 pips on 3 or 4 currency pairs per month. So thats an average of, lets say, 150 a month, per currency pair. Mine gave me at least 250 to 350 a month, per pair (Euro).
If you want we can exchange strategy ideas.

Ok, Waterloo, I explain you my view:

eur/usd buyer now have a little time to make decision (only 15 minutes to get trueway). if price will move up..ussually in 15 minutes price move up fast, but if not maybe will get selling pressure.

To dc - "fxq" - The story I hear is that MMS was bought late last year by their largest competitor (MCM) which subsequently went through MMS and slashed staff (80-90% of them) - especially the more expensive ones. What was billed as a "merger" was in fact the wholesale destruction of MMS. I guess they couldn't find any other way to beat the competition. Can't beat 'em, kill 'em off.

my scenario @ 2625
1. if euro breaks 2625-15 which is a tough level as we all have seen this morning, it will attempt 2588 and possibly 2550, it is most likely that 2550 will hold, but if it breaks there might be a deeper correct
2. if 2625/15 holds this means that it will try on the session highs 2673 and the possible level after that would be 2683+
i prefer scenario number 2 because i believe that the bullish sentiment is stronger

Market it is currently testing 106.30-60 in USD/JPY. I think the zone is pivotal for the pair now.

Moscow Hawk 18:23 GMT January 20, 2004
There are very interesting developments in USD/JPY front. Eventually USD has sunk below 107.15 and I expect acceleration of downside in this pair soon. Inability of USD to hold 106.30-60 zone will confirm the USD weakness and open again 105.75-00 for the test. Moreover if USD will fall to the last indicated zone I would not be surprised to see the test of 105 by the end of the week or early next week.

Good luck

There was another person from Miami on the forum earlier that is rare here. The dollar correction may be on a lifeline but is not dead yet IMO. The eur/usd top 1.2680-1.2700 has not been taken out. With overbought indicators screaming for relief we might see some dollar strength in the NY session IMHO. (/;-> GL GT

I feel long-term eur/usd is still poised for a good move,but i can only see till 1.3140.I had a SELL on eur/usd for medium-term,so i am expecting a move down & then up to 1.31X areas.From there,I shall see where to think after that...For now,1.35 I don't have an eye for.

Your comments would be appreciated and what makes you quite so sureon the 1.35-1.4 areas??

Looking at the viciousness of the upmove from the lows seen after Trichet's verbal intervention, one feels that perhaps even actual intervention selling will be seen as opportunities to load up on the currencies(a la Japan). May be, we need more than verbal intervention, like say, concerted intervention or interest rate moves. BC, your thoughts will be highly appreciated.

I do not like the current picture in EUR/USD. Lack of retracement after such a considerable move and trading in the upper part of daily range are definitely are the moments to note. From the current perspective move above 1.2600 and test of 1.2675-00 does not look so unlikely. Although last Friday I planned entry for fresh shorts in EUR/USD in the 1.2540-640 area I will hold over an idea to short the pair till next week or better levels (around 1.28).

ECB"S LIEBSCHER quoted in an interview with Italian daily Sole 24 Ore saying that F/X INTERVENTION remains an option for CBs to use, but officials will not flag such action and provide any details on when or how such a move would take place. His comments follow others from ECB members recently, which have increasingly hinted at growing signs of distress over recent Euro appreciation, though up until now the ECB has relied on verbal massaging to take the steam out of the Eur/dlr rally. It is worth putting such a comment into the context of CBrs never ruling anything out as an option.

Fwiw/ EUR/NOK finally broke 8,65 and should now be on it´s
way toward 8,73 and 8,80 after some zigging and zagging
around here. NOK/SEK has broken lower after some consoli-
dation and is looking good as a medium term short towards
parity. EUR/SEK will see pension fund outflows next week
which could give a good shorting opportunity both on that
cross and NOK/SEK.

Still like the dollar stronger as part of a consolidation pre- G7,
but ran three stops myself yesterday, so don´t take my word
for it. IMHO

FX UPDATE 21/01
Good morning,

***EUR***
EUR/USD (Currently 1.2590), 200 pips higher than on yesterday opening. The pair retraced sharply up in yesterday session as we expected. For today, we get two supportive zones at 1,2560 and 1,2500 . 1,2625 appears as a crucial resistance, and if broken expect 1,2760. We are pretty neutral today after yesterday's sharp moves, nevertheless we still believe in the uptrend with a long term target around 1,3500.

Data out today:
UK BOE minutes released 09.30 GMT
EZ HICP Dec M/M expected 0.4% 11.00 GMT
EZ labour cost Y/Y Q3 expected 3.0% 11.00 GMT
US housing starts Dec expected 1950K 13.30 GMT
US building permits Dec expected 1875K 13.30 GMT

Gold around 412,50 , with WTI February at 36,18.

***JPY***
Usd/Jpy (currently 107,05), hedging slightly lower on USD general weakness . Traders look concerned about any BOJ action, support currently stands at 106,50 while resistance should emerge at 107,80 where exporters offers are related.EUR/JPY (135,00) following EUR/USD price action. We see some resistance around 135,50 for today while support now lies at 134,50.

***GBP***
Cable (currently 1.8240) experienced a very impressive rally yesterday (almost 400 pips). We expect the pair to rebound today on 1.8210 and 1.8150 to test 1,8300 resistance.
EUR/GBP (0.6915), we are looking for a 0,6900-0,6930 range today. For the medium term we still favour the downside.
Have a nice day,

Olivier

RBos says the charts hint of a period of range- trading ahead of Feb 6-7 G7 meeting. In the case of EUR/USD, channel top and threat of intervention makes test above 1.29-1.30 unlikely, decent support at 1.23-1.2275 should cover the dnside. Bank favors selling rallies toward 1.2650, says until Feb 7, risk is toward 1.2050 rather than 1.3300. REUTERS NEWSS

hello all..! hello Panca ..! in this time my analysis

eur/usd resistance at 1.2650 if break will get 1.2690(minor), 1.2780(mayor).
or sell if a break 1.2550/30 t/p 1.2470

gbp/usd resistance 1.8275 if a break will get 1.8335-1.8355
or sell if a break 1.8120 target 1.8050(minor), 1.7950(mayor)

usd/chf (om Ikay) break 1.2600 will going to target 1.2734-1.2820. or sell if a break 1.2420 to target 1.2350(minor), 1.2285-1.2250(mayor).

a lot of support and resistance in this time. become we better enter at major level resistance and support.
Use the support and resistance above to Stop Loss or Cut Switch your posisition if contrary instruct . imo ... gl / gt...thx all...

Problem is not that European interest are too high but that American interests are TOO LOW. With a US economy growing above 8%, unemployment down to 5.7%, a booming US stock market, a US productivity miracle, and non-core inflation (which is what people actually pay) rising. Why are US interest rates at 1%. Every central banker would raise rates. Not Greenspan since he is not an independent central banker but a cheerleader for the Bush reelection campaign.

Calcutta Vikram...your point is well taken;however,most stops are placed to tight for beginning traders and they are taken out although they were right.....a good rule is to never trade more that 10% of your capital and be able to stand whatever drawdown your own personal psychological makeup can stand.Remember,the trading houses will go "Gunning for Stops" and trade against their own clients......I guess trading is really an art, combined of course with all the Tech&Fund BS.......the trick is to be able to stand the drawdown depending if you are a Scalper, Swing, or Position Trader.....look at that spike on the GBP just now.....at the top of the channel on Daily, top of Bollingers......so would you use this op to add more shorts......again, thats why wer are traders......I personally do not use stops, because I'm rarely in a position more than a few min....sometimes 30

December 3-month Eurodollar futures contract has close inverse correlation with USD moves vs EUR, other major European units. Daily technicals including MACD, RSI show Eurodollars likely to move lower toward 97.43 lower edge of uptrend channel on daily chart; ended in Chicago at 98.085. If history any guide, such implied rise in short-term yields - consistent with large Fed tightening late in 2004 - should be associated with major USD rise.

Please excuse the long post, Friends, but I thought I would share this with the Forum

No Stop Loss = Suicide
----------------------
Its a lesson learnt the hard way but every Trader HAS to learn to use Stop Losses, because there are no guarantees in the market. No Trader has any control over where the market will go. He has control over ONLY one thing - his own actions - where he enters the market, where he places his Stop Loss, where he takes profit.

Religiously placing Stop Losses enables him to prevent losses and emotions from running out of hand. Scientifically and systematically placed Stop Losses are part of the normal cost of business. They can be handled. But when a Stop Loss is not placed at the very outset, there can be severe financial and psychological damage, which can force the Trader out of the market.

A True Story
-------------
A Trader had been making good money through November/ early December, selling the Dollar against the Euro, Yen and Australian Dollar, going with the Trend. In the second hald of December, he decided that the Euro was close to peaking and bucked the trend. At 1.21 he sold TWICE the amount of Euros he had been earlier buying. He placed no Stops because he was sure of his view and he reckoned there was enough time for the market to prove him right before end-Feb, which is when his Contract matures.

At 1.23 he was advised to cut the position since there were chances of the Euro rising to 1.25-1.26. At 1.25 he was told of the chances of 1.28-1.29-1.30. It was suggested that he could sell afresh at 1.28, which might be a peak for the Euro.

The position was kept intact all the way to the peak of 1.2898, and finally cut at 1.26 today morning, when there are at least 50% chances of the Euro correcting downwards by end-Feb.

Risk Management/ Money Management
---------------------------------
Trading is not about forecasts, indicators, "Systems". It is about 2 things. Firstly, are you willing to cut losses or not? If not, you are in for trouble. If Yes, the only question then is where and how. This is Risk Management.

The Second important thing is - how much do you buy or sell? Trading huge sizes (in comparison to your loss absorbing capacity) is a recipe for disaster, even if you use Stops. Trades have to be optimally sized such that losses can be kept in control and profits can be maximised, to the extent possible. This is Money Management.

Figures point to economic slowdown
By Finance reporter Adrian Thirsk

There are predictions of a mid-year economic slowdown in Australia following the latest research from Westpac and the Melbourne Institute.

The Leading Index of Economic Activity has dropped to an annualised growth rate of 2.6 per cent in November, well below the long-term trend.

The previous month's result has been revised down substantially as well.

Westpac global head of economics Bill Evans says there is evidence the November interest rate increase has had an impact.

"This measure today shows that the growth rate fell below the trend growth rate back in September... which is pointing to a slowing in the economy from around about the middle of this year, rather than the second half," Mr Evans said.

"So it is bringing forward the timing ... at which the economy will start to slow."

In a letter to shareholders, chairman Charles Allen said fictitious trades incurred by foreign currency traders totaling A$185 million have been fully identified but a revaluation of the remaining foreign currency portfolio is now being undertaken. We have identified that some additional losses will arise but the full extent of such additional losses will not be known for several days,saying it was too early in the investigation by Australia's largest bank.

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL EUROPE
Otmar Issing, the influential chief economist of the European Central Bank, said warnings to financial markets that the bank started to express nearly two weeks ago were being heeded. But in another attempt to talk down the euro, Mr. Issing cautioned that driving the currency too high, too fast was "risky." Verbal interventions, Mr. Issing said Tuesday in testimony before a committee of European Parliament, had "contributed to make market participants think that this might not be a one-way street . . . This might be risky and so new reflections I think in exchange markets have started."
Mr. Issing's warning comes after a new policy on the currency was hammered out Monday by finance ministers from the 12-nation euro zone and the president of the European Central Bank, Jean-Claude Trichet. Almost since its inception in 1999, European officials have stressed their desire for a "strong and stable" euro, a strategy developed to support the currency as it fell during its early years. The euro -- the world's No. 2 currency after the dollar -- is now more than 50% higher than its low against the dollar, and some fear this ascent threatens the region's nascent recovery.
If the euro continues to rise, the ECB -- which has the final say on the euro -- would have several options. One option would be intervention directly in the currency markets by selling euros or buying dollars, a measure the ECB isn't ruling out. Signs are emerging that the strong euro could have negative economic consequences. Optimism among German investors and analysts slipped in January, a move that economists attributed to the strengthening euro. ZEW research institute's confidence indicator measured 72.9 in January from 73.4 in December, below expectations of 73.2. The statement late Monday was designed to outline the euro zone's position to financial markets and U.S. policy makers. The officials came up with the position in preparation for next month's meeting with counterparts from the Group of Seven industrialized nations. Euro-zone officials hope at that time to secure a unified stance by G-7 nations in support of their position.

"It is decisive that in advance of the Group of Seven meeting . . . that there is a common European position," German Finance Minister Hans Eichel told journalists in Brussels Tuesday.

04:47 GBP/USD Holding Steady Near 1.8200, RBI Flows Seen Over For Now] Tokyo,
Jan 21. A switch in reserves from USD into GBP by India was a major factor in
cable's surge higher overnight. These flows are seen to be over for now but the
aftereffects are still being felt with GBP/USD up as high as 1.8215/20 in Asia
earlier, just shy of the 1.8219 seen in New York. The pair is currently holding
just under these highs around 1.8200, with dealers still looking to take
advantage of any further pushes higher in the pair. GBP is reaping the rewards
of expectations of another base rate hike. The pendulum seems to be swinging in
favor currently, following the CPI release yesterday and also comments from
influential U.K. parliamentarians hinting that an interest rate hike may be in
the offing. Resistance above 1.8210-20 is seen at 1.8265, the high Friday.
1.8300 above is 61.8% Fibo retracement of 1.8580-1.7825. Support below is seen
firm at 1.8140-50. Cable currently trades 1.8210/15. --Haruya Ida

The New Zealand dollar closed sharply higher Wednesday, riding on the euro's overnight gains, but dealers said it was too soon to say if the local currency has reclaimed its uptrend after dropping three U.S. cents last week,I am still cautious until we see the euro breach key technical levels of 1.2630 (versus the dollar)," said Richard Yetsenga, currency strategist at Deutsche Bank. "I think the Kiwi is still vulnerable, but at this stage I'd wait another 24 hours and see if the euro can prove itself," he said. Initial support for the Kiwi is likely at US$0.6640, then US$0.6610, but "it's hard to be very firm on these levels given recent breaches," Payn added. Deutsche Bank's Yetsenga said a pullback toward mid-US$0.6500 levels would provide good Kiwi buying opportunity for those with medium-term views.

An explosive come back after few days retracement. Interestingly, both EURUSD and GBPUSD bounced right ahead of the 38.2% retracement that is likely the end of wave 4 for a final push to another high. Don't read too much into waves though.

However, things are not usually this simple. Expect a very complex consolidation between 1.21-1.23 to 1.27-1.29 for EURUSD. Buy in the lower bracket and sell in the upper bracket. For today and you already longed yesterday (or Friday), stop should be set below 1.2510 and take profit before 1.2680.

And GBPUSD, stop below 1.8100 and target 1.8300.
Stay aside for a day or two afterwards. Picture will become clearer if the bull trend has resumed or it's just a bull trap.

good luck.

I can assure you that dealing desks "trade" against their clients and look for people who use "tight" stops, as a Professional Trader I DO NOT USE STOPS, JUST TRADE THE TRADE..........THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE IN THE FUTURES MKT WHERE THE "LOCALS" GO "Gunning for Stops"......enough said...just watch your trade...know your exit point BEFORE YOU GET IN NASSAU....JUST STAY WITH THE SPOT FX MKTS AND YOU WILL BE FINE...........GOOD ADVICE FROM ML....GOOD CALL AND GOOD TRADING EVERYONE........

Gd Day all .. Asia sleeps .. think we may get some more USD selling as the market later in Ldn , NY look at State of Union Speech as expanding the GDP Deficit through more spending ..
Also lack of ECB , Fin Ministers to String EUR will prevail ..
Use Dips to add to longs and see you all at 1.3000.

Hope we see a good dip to bail a ugly USDCHF position .. LOL

Interesting article...sorry about the sze
Buying Australian dollars against U.S. dollars has been a surefire way of making money over the past year, but signs are emerging that it might not be one-way traffic in 2004.
The Australian dollar, in line with other global currencies, suffered a pullback over the past few sessions as the U.S. dollar staged a comeback.
That comeback proved short-lived, but it did get market analysts thinking about how long the U.S. dollar will be out of favor.
The consensus view of the market is that the U.S. dollar has further to decline, a view premised on the weight of the twin deficits of large current account and fiscal shortfalls.
Last year, the U.S. dollar was also weighed down by a weak U.S. economy and share market and by geopolitical concerns.
However, the U.S. economy is powering back to life and market watchers are now reduced to talking about a jobless recovery, which is probably disingenuous as it is well known that employment is among the last things to turn around.
The U.S. share market is also robust and the outlook for corporate earnings is also brightening.
This begs the question: How long before serious portfolio flows start heading back to the U.S.?
The answer is that this has already started, but currency markets are slow to respond.
Looking back at the collapse of the high-tech bubble, it took a year for the U.S. dollar to finally start falling.
In fact, the Australian dollar's trough against the U.S. dollar was almost exactly a year after the Nasdaq Composite index started crumbling.
The twin deficits remain a weight on the U.S. dollar, but these issues have been ignored in the past and when reasons to buy U.S. assets become too compelling, the deficits will probably be ignored again.
Markets tend to ignore deficits when it suits them. Look at Australia, where a current account deficit higher than that of the U.S. as a percentage of gross domestic product did nothing to stop investors snapping up Australian dollars in 2003.
The other event that is likely, certainly by the second half of 2004, and which would signal the end of the U.S. dollar's demise, is a raising of interest rates by the U.S. Federal Reserve.
This would increase the attractiveness of the U.S. currency relative to others.
At the same time, the Reserve Bank of Australia is likely to have finished raising rates and may well be starting to face some pressure to cut them as the domestic economy slows from its recent strong growth.
This doesn't mean the Australian dollar is likely to fall sharply against the U.S. dollar in 2004.
There are still several factors that will support the Australian currency. These include a recovery in exports in line with global growth and a rebound in rural production after the drought, increasing commodity prices, and a still strong interest rate advantage, even if that advantage is slightly eroded over the year.
But what is becoming increasingly clear is that as more reasons emerge to buy U.S. dollars, this means reasons emerge to sell Australian dollars.
It is still quite possible that the Australian dollar will make a fresh high above the US$0.7813 reached recently, possibly even above US$0.8000.
But expecting it to hold these levels will probably be too optimistic.
It may also be the case that the consensus forecast of analysts surveyed at the end of last year for the Australian dollar to end 2004 at US$0.7300 may also be high.
Once the juggernaut that is the U.S. dollar finally reverses course, it will be difficult to stop.

Dllr/Yn:

I think a break above 110.60 is required to buck this current downward trend, however, I dont see that happening with what looks like to be a double bottom reversal by the Eur/$.

My thoughts are that 107.70 will be the high for the day, with the downward trend towards 105.00 continuing on later on the week.

Housing Industry Association argues 5.2% drop in investment lending for Australia housing in November completes "compelling case" for RBA to hold off on rate hike next month. Says result significant: "The outcome adds weight to an already large body of evidence that the leading indicators for the housing sector were coming off the boil towards the end of 2003."

Sorry to hear about your stop loss getting hit by a small dip ML.

I think some dealers trade against their clients and bust their stops on purpose if they have a large position.

I have no concrete evidence but it seems a little suspicious sometimes when it does a straight vertical line to one PIP above or below your stop loss and then jumps right back to where it was before.

This mentioned overnight , I have a feeling this is what they are planning and why they are so laid back about the moves we see , one round of intervention could put the Euro donw to 115 with no problem and wipe out many positions , enough to scare of specs for quite a time - I dont thnk many in the market nowadays have been caught up in the real thing (intervention) its been a few years since the FED participated with the rest of the world.

QF......hope you took note of my 30 min EMA50 and 200 activities last night.....and that Bolinger band sign result was beyond my wildest expectation.

Also my tip that cable was sitting on top of the daily channel it broke out of, and 4 hr EMA200 support..should have been clue enough of direction.

But when the dust settled, ML blew all the gains by shorting into the trendline, than waiting too long to SAR after it broke, than getting the SAR long position stop taken out by ONE stinkin' PIP on a shallow dip by my arch enemy dealer @ censored.

So we can be "right" all day long...but actualy timing our trades based on it sometimes is a whole different animal.......and today, well I have no clue yet.
