Gold Coast Martin now what are you getting upto Bored again !!

GOLD COAST, Australia (AP)--A man who said he had hostages and explosives barricaded himself in a hotel room in a busy tourist resort on Australia's east coast,. Queensland state police said officers who made contact with the 43-year-old man hadn't been able to confirm whether he had hostages or explosives.
However, Gold Coast Inspector told Australian Broadcasting Corp. said officials were confident there were explosive devices in the room.The man sealed himself into a room on the 13th floor of an apartment block on Australia's popular Gold Coast resort strip Thursday night. Officers evacuated three floors above and below the room where the man was holed up and cordoned off streets around the building.

RBA will be erring on side of easing next year as shown by bond price action in the past few weeks with bond yields below cash. The first indication that RBA could ease would be a significant slowdown in job creation, currently running at reasonable 2.6% pace. "With household budgets overextended and accordingly low private sector savings, any signs that households' ability to service accrued debt will soften will probably encourage central bank to adopt an easing bias," with growth surprises next year likely to be to the downside, arguing for AUD underperform in 2005.

Since the time cycle date of 25th is a holiday, looking at the chart of Nasdaq today, all indications are that this time cycle will be a continuing bullish cycle, unless Monday 27th NYClose shows reversal which is less likely at this point.

FRANKFURT (AP)--The German soccer federation warned potential spectators Thursday against buying World Cup tickets from unauthorized agents, saying they could be prevented from entering stadiums for the matches.
The DFB, which is especially fearful of fraud on the Internet, won a court ruling Thursday that it hopes is the first step to limiting ticket problems for the 2006 World Cup, which Germany will host.

Enrico Caruso, chief dealer at Tempest Asset Management in Newport Beach, Calif. said Thursday's movement was clearly a technical drive by a group of investors to test the $1.35 level at a time when low liquidity meant resistance would be weaker. Still, he said there would be some caution among traders.
"Liquidity is key right now, and it's giving some guys more ammo to take the market where they want it to go," he said.

ACC 20:28 / China says no change now in yuan policy (Reuters Wed December 22, 2004 01:35 AM ET)

"(Reuters) - China said on Wednesday that it is not changing its currency policy for now despite intensifying market speculation that it could do so before the end of the year.

"This is a market rumour," a central bank spokesman said when asked about the speculation in offshore currency markets. "At present there is no change in the exchange rate policy."

That should be re-assuring - at least at present and till year end . Or do you think the red-ones are up to something no-good ?

Balzano PA 20:29 GMT December 23, 2004 Reply   
Sterling has been weak not through poor fundamentals versus the US Dollar. The recent tuble is GBP, against the USD is due to the strenghtening of the Euro. The Source is long-term demand from Portofolio Diversification and thus the Euro's rise is not due to speculative trades. Going to be very hard stopping this higher move upwards.

It is my contention that we are living in dangerous times.
The Bush Administration is eager for the Chinese to float the reminibi. Diplomacy hasn't worked. So now they are using the markets.
The markets will force the Chinese to act.
Treasury Secretary Snow comes out with the line about respect for markets and the the ability of the aforementioned to accurately set values. What a load of codswallop!
Markets overshoot constantly on teh upside and downside.
FX markets will not singularly redress the US deficits.
GBP, AUD and NZD are between 10% to 20% overvalued against USD presently.
When China acts, watch out for the big fall in EUR and others as the hot money is repatriated.
Recall which way Buffet is sitting.

Until Chinese move enjoy the ride.

FRANCE
Dollar fall could turn 'catastrophic'
Posted Thu, 23 Dec 2004

French Finance Minister Herve Gaymard said on Thursday that the fall of the dollar could become "catastrophic" in world terms.

The United States "absolutely" had to understand at a G7 meeting of finance ministers from leading industrialised countries in February that "coordinated" international management was needed, he said during a visit to a General Motors factory here.

If we stay in the current situation, it's possible to imagine a catastrophic situation at world level, for the Europeans who have an over-valued currency, for the Asians who hold assets in dollars and for the Americans because long-term interest rates will rise," said Gaymard.

Referring to the "interpenetration" of economies, he said that "today many jobs in the United States depend on the good health of European groups".

Gaymard said that the G7 meeting in London in February was important. "It is absolutely necessary that at this meeting our American friends understand that coordinated management is needed at the international level," he said.

The minister said he hoped that the problem would be recognised more quickly than had been the case when the dollar slumped at the beginning of the 1980s.

"It is not possible to do something if the triangle of Europe, the United States and Asia does not act together in close coordination," he said.

A statement by the Eurogroup of eurozone finance ministers on exchange rate issues had been "very important", he said. "We are following the matter with great attention and concern."

The Eurogroup, in a statement at the beginning of December, had urged leading countries to take all "appropriate" measures to reduce those world economic imbalances which were causing the dollar to fall and the euro to rise.

Gaymard said that the French government was studying arrangements for French companies suffering from the currency situation.

He said that the biggest French companies had hedged their currency positions to reduce the effects of sharp exchange rates.

"But for smaller ones, we have to see what can be done in the way of a mechanism for mutualising risk. We are going to work on this in the next few weeks."

i'm looking at the same wave count. i think 1.4000 might be seen jan/feb, then 1.1000 by year end and then higher into '06/'07. by then we'll probably be looking at 1.60odd, but it's too early to make specific predictions before we see a) this current top and b) next years forecasted low..

one hinderence to this tech analysis is concerted intervention (which would work - seen posts saying the opposite), which may come in the years ahead, but NOT this coming year IMO.

EUR/$

Measured move in Time:

On a 60 min chart if you count the # of bars in the accumulation pattern prior to the break out, ther are about 17 bars. So for a measured move, there is high probability for this trend to continue for atleast 17 bars after the break out. Right now, we have 12 bars after the breakout, so we have atleast 5 more hours for this to continue IMHO. At the end of the 17 bars usually there is either a distribution or a reaccumulation pattern which determines the next phase.

Measured move in Price:
The accumulation area mentioned above has a price range of about 70 pips (1.3410-1.3340). So, the estimated price projections (areas)would be
1.3410+ 70 pips = 1.3480
1.3480+ 70 pips = 1.3550 etc.

Sometimes half of 70 pips would also serve as price target. Time is more important than price.

This is all in the context of the bigger picture time cycle which is due Dec 25th where we figure if the direction is continuing or reverse/sideways.

Re eurousd - I think the best tech guidance is just the weeklies around this time last year; choppy action from the last week or two of December/2003 - including a number of new highs. The highest high before the decline occurred in the week immidialy prior to the decline, which lasted 4 months, and took 1200pips off the eurusd. There's a similar pattern in early summer of 2003. It took maybe five weeks from the first down week in mid December 2003 before a decline is definite, & i would expect about the same this time. So for me it's a good time to be patient, or sell off the new highs for small gains.
Out of curiosity, don't most big funds run their year-ends at the end of March, rather than December, like other companies do?

for example Latvia our dear neighbours are switching their national currency peg from dollars to euros. at the moment theire currency is pegged to SDR from next year it is pegged to euros...
so basically all the corporates there want to sell their dollars and buy euros...

A couple of points to consider today and Friday:

1). An early closing in NY today (1300 ET - 1800 GMT) ands 2). NY trading will be closed Friday.

Given the already low level of counter-party traders active, if, as and when leveraged accounts want to take EURUSD through the prior high at 13470, they can do so with ease as evidenced by the spike higher last night at about the time Tokyo would have come on line (but didn't as markets were closed ther for Emporers Birthday).

UK data should be very positive. Current account deficit will be lower than expected due to lower oil prices and a higher GBP exchange rate used in calculations. UK GDP growth will be much stronger than expected fueled - as in the USA- by incredibel government borrowing and spending.So all in all expect amazingly positive figures which will sent GBP back to 1.9500 in an already dollar negative environment.

This opinion may be negated if USDX will rebound above about 83.5.

For the to time being a near target for Euro=1.39xx is still intact.

Ok, here are my Christmas giftS to everybody here:

1. Go long everything against the dollar, use progressive stops. Don't counter-trend trade with shorts, the movements will be too small.

2. Keep trading through next-week. Don't miss the train.

3. NEITHER THE BOJ OR JAP FINMIN WILL INTERVENE IN THE FX MARKETS.


Merry Christmas all.

Well, for those that are more tolerant of wider stop loss a SHORT eur/usd here with stop at 1.35 could work very well indeed or wait until 1.3470 and do same thing. Only possie I am in still is that eur/gbp short from 7005

Dear Sirs

In order to perform our popular Santa Claus service more efficently, and to maximise your satisfaction, we announce today that we have outsourced it to the Bangalore-based Fairy&Pixie Boys Co Limited. This company already is performing tooth fairy and leprachon services around the world to great satisfaction.

Within this process we have been able to enhance our productivity by laying off 25% of Santas little helpers and by putting the reindeer out to pasture. We expect that this will have a positive impact of 15-25% on EBITDA in the current fiscal year.

In the course of this restructuring we have optimized Santas route, and owing to this and the growing interest in Christmas in Asia, we expect Santa to enter European airspace sometime between Dec 28 and Jan 01, when presents will delivered starting from Scandinavia.

With thanks for Your co-operation, and wishing You a Merry Christmas,

Santa Claus Inc.

The chances of an intervention exercise being launched this side of New Year are probably quite slim but it can't be ruled out.

A new resilience in the yen as foreign interest in Japanese assets rebounds, thin year-end trading conditions, fear that the dollar might come under even more selling pressure next year, plus the need for senior finance ministry official Hiroshi Watanabe to prove himself - are all reasons for action now rather than later.

And, noted Simon Derrick, currency strategist with Bank of New York in London, there wouldn't be any precedent in launching intervention at this time of year.

Back in 1987, when the slide in the dollar was causing similar concern, a coordinated exercise involving the world's major central banks over the Christmas period managed to help turn the U.S. currency by the New Year.

GOOD MORNING WORLD!
nice day today ah?
how are you? fine, good.
as things developed in the same way as they always do during the christmas time ( I mean crawling in direction of the trend and making new extremes) we must be happy and celebrate.
my traget for the next 48 hours is 1,3500!!!! and this one is long waited and targeted from the beginning of the year.
MNI reports there are couple huge Double no touch option structures which should help us to get up there. fwiw:
EURO-DOLLAR: Rate extended the late Asian rally to pressure reported
offers around $1.3440, the upside momentum earlier boosted on the breaks
above $1.3410 and $1.3420 with market conditions described as very thin
(Japan holiday, Emperor's birthday). A break above $1.3440 seen opening
a move up to retest life time highs at $1.3470 (Dec7), a break above
here then placing reported option barriers at $1.3500 and $1.3515 in
focus. A $1.3000/1.3500 dnt option structure is set to run off Dec28,
while a $1.3135/1.3515 dnt structure runs off at the today's NY cut.
Expected offers to emerge on any approach to $1.3500, one trader
suggests, but in these thin markets the barriers are expected to be
targeted. Trader adds that we could see a push up to take out these
levels with profit take sales to follow and correct rate lower. A break
and build above $1.3520 seen opening a move up to $1.3550/60. Bids seen
placed back at the broken resistance at $1.3410, the interest extending
down to $1.3400, with key support noted between $1.3385/75.

Helsinki iw 07:59 GMT December 23, 2004 Reply   
The euro has broken the resistance at 1,3435/45 and this could mean that the strong medium term resistance at 1,3475/85 won´t hold amymore. In such a case, the target will be close to 1,4000. But this is a low liquidity Christmas market so beware of sudden bursts of activity. IMHO

FWIW top of the triangle being tested for the eur/usd pair with intraday indicators in O/B area. I don’t believe this is a breakout yet but immediate support is found at 3410-20 (the top triangle area) for now. Bulls are making a move now but I would not be surprised if they fail to completely break the triangle this time. Bottom of the triangle is at 3280-90 now.

Resistance for eur/usd pair stands now at 3440-50, 3500-10 and 3530-40. Main objective is still around the 3500-30 area.
Immediate retracement numbers are 3400-10, 3350-60, 3320-30, 3290-3300 and 3245-3255.
Retracement numbers are 3340-50, 3260-70, 3200-10, 3140-50 and 3060-70.
Second wave retracement numbers are 3260-70, 3150-60, 3050-60, 2950-60, and 2830-40 for now key retracement number is 3140-50.
Resistance T/L 3425-35 and Support T/L 3280-90 (this is the triangle forming)
Support is around the 3380-3400, 3340-50, 3310-20, 3250-3280, 3210-30, 3170-80, 3130-40 and 3060-80 for now key support is around the 3130-40 area IMHO. GL GT

NEWBIES....lots of times price action will take pairs outside their technical ranges. That has happened tonight with EURO IMO. 1.3410 really SHOULD have held but when it didn't stop because stops were hit and caused euro to surge. Now for euro to get past 1.3440 (looks like a double top on 30 minute chart) we will need some MORE buyers. Are they there???? Perhaps....but more EASILY IMO at this time, is the SHORT direction IF euro holds here under 1.3440 for the next few hours

I see the dollar entering a consolidation phase at this time (see my archives).

The 1.3440 area is a pivot point and a break may suggest a test of 1.38, but the oil retracement suggests to me that perhaps 1.25 is in the cards for the euro.

Gold above $445 in the cash market would ignite some upside momentum...but the technicals indicate some additional time for retracement/consolidation.

Happy holidays.

I am not a currency trader however I follow currencies because I have large positions in precious metals. Gold has been moving inversely to the dollar yet it doesn't appear to be moving higher on recent dollar weakness, therefore I am considering selling off positions before years end and looking for re entry in new year. My question is, does anyone experienced in currency trading thinks there is a high probability for the dollar index dropping under 80 in near term, ie, 3 months out? Thanks

The US$ err, could go down - or up
by Gerard Minack (ABN AMro)

I started this week by asserting that most of the big market calls for 2005 will depend on the economic cycle. The outlook for the US$, however, may be an exception. Of course, everyone knows the main reason to be bearish the US$ is because of America's large external deficit. This is a good point. It's particularly pertinent when you consider that everyone seems to be dollar bearish. Usually in a market if everyone is leaning one way the risk-reward is to go the other way. That's not always true in currency markets
because there are very large non-commercial participants. Now, for example, Joe Sixpack is selling US$600bn of dollars a year, because he's importing US$600bn more than he's exporting. That flow will persist regardless of interest rate differentials, regardless of relative growth, regardless of positioning. Every market participant can be short dollars and there will be someone still selling. This is one reason currency markets tend to trend. But there are semi-natural portfolio flows coming the other way, so the balance between the buyers and sellers of dollars is finer than suggested by only looking at the trade deficit.
There are two scenarios for how this balancing act moves, and
they have very different outcomes for the dollar. Under the first scenario, US growth slows because consumers slow, even as the rest of the world continues to buy US$ assets. This is my scenario:a domestically-led slowdown, where growth slows, equities fall, bonds rally and short rates come down. But it's also a scenario where Americans sell fewer dollars. If the rest of the world remains a buyer, then the dollar could go up - or at least remain far more resilient than most expect. Compared to where the consensus view was at the start of 2004, this is almost what happened for the first 10 months of the year, where the dollar moved sideways (and
long-end yields fell). This scenario is the Japan-style work-out. The second scenario is an externally-imposed slowdown, where dollar demand falls short of America's natural selling. The clearest sign of this will be a combination of rising bond yields and a sharply falling dollar. This is an ugly scenario, where the withdrawal of foreign financing forces America to slow. This is what I call the Asia-style work-out, as in the Asian crisis of the late 1990s. The point to the two scenarios is that under both US growth seems set to slow (and, I'd argue, Wall Street to weaken). But the outlook for the dollar is almost 180° different. The one dollar view that may not be that different under either scenario is that the so-far lopsided
dollar adjustment - with the euro bearing the brunt of the
dollar's weakness, but Asia very little - may change in 2005. But if the dollar proves to be only modestly weak, then that call is not so much a dollar call, as a Europe-Asia call. In other words, it may be that if Asia (including Japan) can economically-disconnect from a slowing US, while Europe stumbles and the ECB starts cutting rates, the big currency call for 2005 will be EUR/JPY, not the major dollar crosses.
