Scientists: Asia Earthquake Disturbed Earth's Rotation
Enzo Boschi, the head of Italy's National Geophysics Institute, likened the quake's power to detonating a million atomic bombs the size of those dropped on Japan during World War II, and said the shaking was so powerful it even disturbed the Earth's rotation. ``All the planet is vibrating'' from the quake, he told Italian state radio. Other scientists said it was early too say whether the rotation was affected by the quake.

China Aviation Woes Signal a `Hard Landing,' U.S. Investors Say
Dec. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Jim Rogers, who co-founded the Quantum hedge fund in 1970 with George Soros, says the trading fiasco that cost state-run China Aviation Oil Holding Co. $550 million is an omen of tougher times ahead for Chinese companies and their investors. ``I can hardly wait,'' he says.
``I expect more problems in the Chinese market,'' says Rogers, who spent a decade at the Quantum Fund. ``There will be more things like this and more bankruptcies, a lot more. The Chinese are first-generation capitalists. It's not as easy as it looks.'' Rogers's index funds include the Diapason fund, a partnership with Lausanne, Switzerland-based Equinoxe Partners.
Rogers saw firsthand the promise of China's economy beginning in 1988 on the first of three trips across the country by motorcycle and car. He says he's stopped investing in Chinese equities for now because of what he calls ``massive speculation'' that has driven up prices of real estate, construction and raw materials.

The way you can generally tell if a retracement is imminent is buy looking at all the pairs in general and seeing whether the all or most are retracing. back from their lows or highs. The most difficult thing is to tell how IF retracement may continue of if CONTINUATIONS may continue. For instance CAD is 10 pips off it's LOW, CHF is 20 pips off it's low and EURO is 6 pips off it's high and GBP is 6 pips off it's high so retracements have NOT been that significant so it is MORE likely we will see some more USD selling especially with EURO and GBP.

Some one asked me about gbp/usd pair last week and I got no response for my troubles so I will bring up the comments for this pair, which are still valid. I have updated some of the numbers as this pair tries to find a breakout of the triangle it has defined this month. Happy Holidays
Miami OMIL (/;-> 04:39 GMT December 24, 2004
Gbp/usd continues struggle inside the triangle with a double top around the 9550 area. Top T/L is around 9570-80 and bottom T/L is 9120-30 and 9070-80. Look for 9280-9310 area as good resistance for now. Intraday indicators are a mix bag and unwinding. Daily indicators are still in a correction mode (bearish). Support 9110-20 defines this pair if broken then look for further correction but a bounce will produce a good buy as well as the break of the resistance to test the top. My style of trading is still buying on a confirmed bounce for this pair with stops under the support and add positions to a break of the resistance or sell on a failure of the resistance IMHO. GL GT

From my last post on time cycles...
The minor cycle has ended and going into the main Dec 19-20 cycle we have a bottom @ 1.3201, which means from Dec 19 till the next cycle of 25th,we will have bullish continuation in EUR for short-term position trading.
The next major time cycle date is Jan 3-4. That means until that date the main trend direction is bullish for Euros for short-term position trading.
However, there are 2 minor cycle dates before Jan3-4th time, on Dec25th and Dec29-30th.
The minor cycle of Dec25th has begun with a low in the area of 1.3510 area, that means this is a sign of bullish continuation for EUR/$ until the next minor cycle of 29th or so. So, give plus or minus 1 day there is a possibility of retracement for EUR from 28th to 30th or so and then bullish continuation until the major cycle date of Jan3-4. This major cycle date applies to most trading instruments. In any case, let the market confirm the right direction, just use this as points in time to watch for.

A new tax is expected to halve China's aluminum exports next year, with some producers saying they plan to stop exporting the metal altogether. Government officials Monday confirmed months-long market speculation, saying the tax-free status of aluminum exports would end at the start of 2005 with the imposition of a 5%tax. Analysts said the move is part of government efforts this year to cool the Chinese economy by restricting investment in overheating sectors, including the aluminum industry. analysts said the tax could cause China's aluminum exports next year to slide about 50% to 700,000 metric tons, from around 1.5 million tons in 2004, while others said exports could even drop to 600,000 tons.

My prayers will join others for the victims of nature’s wrath. It makes me think of how helpless and vulnerable we can be at times. I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays. Here are some updated numbers for eur/usd as it continues on its way up the bullish channel. I was expecting some kind of pullback at some time but that has not happened yet and it looks to test the key area before any retracement takes place. Aud/usd has printed (7720) limit area for me so I am out. Both pairs are still running along the bullish channel with no signs of a sell signal yet.
Resistance for eur/usd pair stands now at 3580-3600. Key target 3560-70 and main target is in the 3750-60 area.
Immediate retracement numbers are 3500-10, 3470-80, 3445-55, 3415-3425 and 3385-3395.
Retracement numbers are 3450-60, 3390-3400, 3340-50, 3290-3300 and 3230-40.
Second wave retracement numbers are 3400-10, 3310-3320, 3235-45, 3170-80, and 3080-90 for now key retracement number is 3390-3400.
Support T/L 3410-20 and 3320-30.
Support is around the 3520-40, 3480-90, 3440-50, 3380-3400, 3340-50, 3310-20, 3250-3280, 3210-30, 3170-80, and 3130-40 for now key support is around the 3380-3400 area IMHO. GL GT

Merry X'mas to you, PipPirate.
LOL is right.....the irony and the absurdity
And this is to the Indians on this Forum......consider, on the other hand, the facts that India had, in 1991, pawned its gold to save itself from the ignominy of a sovereign debt default and that it has been PRE-paying its sovereign debt in the last 2-3 years. WHO is rich and who is poor? Which is the THIRLD world? Wake up, g

America's Asian creditors should forgive a portion of the debts owed to them by the U.S. government

To my mind, US Treasuries are today only as good as Junk Bonds, especially for foreign investors. What prevents Pres Bush from issuing an edict banning repayment to, say, French investors? He needs $100 bln (and more) for the war and after. With the UN not likely to be willing to foot the bill, what prevents Pres Bush from freezing US Bank Accounts of Foreign Investors? Think about it.
When I'd hinted at the chances of a sovereign debt default by the USA (even earlier than 2003), I was asked if I'd been sniffing/drinking something. Today PIMCO hints at the same thing. Please do not forget that the USA HAS a history of debt default. The world going off the Gold Standard was just that about 3 decades ago

BEIJING (AP)--China said Monday it would crush any efforts to make Taiwan independent and accused the island's president of using a referendum on constitutional reform to incite hostility between the two sides.
"Should the Taiwan authorities go so far as to make a reckless attempt that constitutes a major incident of 'Taiwan independence,' the Chinese people and armed forces will resolutely and thoroughly crush it at any cost," the State Council, or Cabinet, said in a white paper on China's military.

For those that might not be aware, Reggie White a GREAT former Eagles and Packer football player passed away this morning at age 41. A even BETTER person than a football player and that is saying a great deal about the man.
Also very tragic about the Indodesia eartquake victims.

good late night,
just came to see if here are posted views how tsunami influences fx business...
anyway, euro is still strong buy against usd.
1,3480/85 shouldnt be touched before NYC starts, my upside target for today is 1,3620/25.
no way we can touch downside level is 1,3310/15.
keep buying buying and take this money what makrets offers you so easily.
