I have been informed I have lost a friend in Taiwan from the Tsunami. Yet I know he has always been a positive soul. He once told me that "nature is more than man, but we must be good."

I understand now, he said it with a smile years ago as he tought me. I cannot post for a few days.

valdez 15:59 / the linked piece talks in part about the reasons for usd decline. The days - the first 100yrs of what made America great - of American dollar exchangeable for gold or silver are now replaced by worried dollar holders who are eyballing the fed govt issuing more and more paper fiats as means to finance its outlandish promises and threatening people who hold dollars with "legal-tender laws", inspections and outright confiscations under guise of terror war. In the old days, people knew that while government could crankup the presses, the value of their real money – their gold and silver – would simply rise along with everything else relative to the falling value of the government’s debt instruments. They now know differently. That is why politicians hate gold as it is a very public signal of how much the government is debasing its fiats. Gold's price expressed in the number of dollars is simply an indication of how much their "currency" is dropping in value.

It will be interesting to listen - and probably more important to try to gage investor reaction - to Bush's upcoming speech for lies / truths / (about his intended spending) in an attempt to shore up peoples' willingness to continue to have confidence in the greenback.

In China, for many-many years they've used caged chickens to prewarn earthquakes. They get nervous and fidgety in a certain way know to the trained chicken watchers who check them constantly..this is true. The Chinese are amazing at noting simple organic agriculture and every day life things that if employed in the outside world would make it a much better place.

Atlanta, tks amigo..exit's ready I think...hope I'm not stearing you wrong but it's leveled off a lot. Many who know much more than I do, ref USD drop..say 1st Q next year will see more drop..some say into 2nd Q. My model said that 6 months ago. My model is a modified sine wave curve of 10 years swissy history melded with the synthetic Euro/USD 10 year fxtrek chart (after all they had to morph it with some basis factors) plus a little hunch factor. We should see USD gain ground again starting late 2nd Q next year to 3rd Q...a little far off yet to see over the horizon but that's the general layout of my model. On help forum I've blogged over the months about why this sine wave occurs with majors..has to do with the general world wide plan everyone says I'm nuts to propose thinking I'm an Iluminati fighter. I don't fight them, I win because of them and their pattern. GT. HNY.

I might add for new traders, I lost a few days of news so the news about Japan "might" sell some Yen over the New Year passed me nice it would have been to cast a few lots into the E/Y pot today. Oh well..drop my guard and that's what I of those fish that got away. Lesson to all. Although the soothsayers predict lots more USD fall 1st Q, this should be nearing or at peak...based on past peaks from 2002. Wouldn't be surprised at all if major correction didn't come like 5 cents before the final attack on 1.40. 10 year swissy chart indicates USD can fall 300-400 pips from present to still be within range...that takes us almost to 1.40.

Atlanta, no, I didn't close because I figured the chart would fact I think likely it will keep its ascention mode albeit slower than from this AM's nice blocky predictable topography. It's because I am tired as hades, seeing double, satisfied w/ day's wins. If I over do it, I eat up profits..those "oh why the H didn't I just stop when I was ahead!" times have taught me a lesson. Tomorrow's another day..wana get shut eye to get online at 0200 EST before the first actions starts at 0230. Ever notice that?

The euro's rise could not have come at a much worse time for euro-zone officials. Recent data for October showed the trade surplus narrowed to EUR5.5 billion versus EUR9.18 billion a year earlier, while EUR3.7 billion in capital flowed out the region. Early in December, the ECB downgraded its 2005 GDP forecast to 1.4%-2.4%, from 1.8%-2.8%, analysts say that while the euro may make further gains in the short term, there is probably some relief ahead. Euro-yen trading accounts for only around 3-4% of global foreign exchange trading, according to data from the Bank of International Settlements. That means the pair tends to track each currency's movements versus the dollar. The yen has lagged the euro's climb versus the dollar in recent weeks for two basic reasons, said Todd Elmer, currency strategist at Barclays Capital in New York. One is the market's belief that Japanese intervention to stem the dollar's climb is more likely and that it could have a major impact on short-term dollar/yen pairings. Investors don't want to get burnt on the wrong side. The other factor is that while investors are long accustomed to euro-zone economic weakness, the deteriorating macro picture in Japan in recent months has surprised some analysts and offered the dollar some support versus the yen. Some analysts said that euro purchases by central banks are also giving the single currency an extra step up. Yet with the concerns about Japanese growth largely priced in, analysts at Bank of America said in a research report Wednesday afternoon the "European currency outpeformance against the (yen) has hit its peak." The impact of dollar weakness on the euro zone means the region's economic outlook is unlikely to change much. And in a widely held view, they said that Asian countries will likely start to take more of the burden of dollar weakness in 2005, once the Chinese government moves ahead with some form of yuan revaluation. Rob Carnell, senior economist at Lehman Brothers, notes that the euro's rise versus the yen, while unwelcome, is not a fatal blow. Whereas the euro zone's trade with the U.S. makes up around 16% of its total, trade with Japan amounts to just 3%. The euro zone's leading trade partner is non-euro-zone E.U. countries, followed by Asia ex-Japan. Since many Asian countries keep their currencies linked with the dollar in one form or another, that means euro-zone officials will probably continue to worry more about euro strength versus the dollar than versus the yen. So many currencies sort of quasi dollar-pegged, causing a large chunk of the world that Europe is losing competitiveness with. dj/reuters

Yen Drops to Record on Speculation Japan Will Sell Its Currency The yen fell to a record against the euro and dropped by the most in three weeks versus the dollar on speculation Japan will sell its currency during the New Year holiday.

CHICAGO (AFX) -- The dollar soared against the yen in early U.S. trade on thinking Japan would sell its currency during the country's coming holiday season. At 8:23 a.m. Eastern, the dollar was trading at 104.13 yen, up 1.07 percent from Tuesday

Germany could be stripped of its triple-A credit rating if the government's reform drive comes to a standstill, two Standard & Poor's analysts warned Wednesday.
Speaking in an interview with German newspaper Boersen-Zeitung, Moritz Kraemer, S&P's director of sovereign ratings, and ratings analyst Kai Stuckenbrock said that although Germany's current ratings outlook is stable, the government should not get complacent with regard to structural and political reform. Low economic growth rates will make it difficult to shoulder the burden of an aging population.
Kraemer said that the euro zone could see "dramatic" ratings downgrades in the next five to ten years, if its twelve member states do not address the problem of low growth and negative demographics.

My carry trades (not meant as true "carry" trade, but as winners end of day) are in 55-60% average. Sometimes better, sometimes worse. By exiting losers early however, I have found that I tend to trade less and avoid the big hits. Big hits are the number one account destroyer imho.

GENEVA (AP)--The international Red Cross said Wednesday that it feared the death toll in Sunday's earthquake and tsunamis in the Indian Ocean could top 100,000.

"We're facing a disaster of unprecedented proportion in nature," said Simon Missiri, Asia Pacific chief at the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. "We're talking about a staggering death toll."

Unfortunately missed yesterday's exchanges on day versus position trading, however I can share one piece of advice for beginning and/or struggling traders. That is, don't take home a loser. Whenever you are "done" for the day, if your trade is in the red, dump it and you have no baggage to bear. I still adhere to this simple rule after many years in the battlefield. Thus, my daytrades are the losers.
Note: on larger accounts/trades legging into a level is normal

Euro/Pound/Yen...may try lows before US close; I'm sure everyone aware of year end squaring, however if not, consider that large specs tend to capture profits for year/quarter results and also "dress" portfolio's to conform to best appearance for client reviews. This often leads to spikes in markets not necessarily in line with spec opinions. It's not unusual to see countertrend movements.

Euro support at 12/24 and 12/26 highs 1.3550 area tested today; Cable support levels established 12/09 and 12/10 reverse H and S shoulders and retest 12/22. Technically, these levels fall we should see some follow-through pressure to downside (suspect lots of retail stops there). We'll see, but sets up nice opportunity.

NT I hope you are having a good holiday. Intraday indicators are unwinding from O/B levels so I would not rule out a test or a break of the T/L again. I have no buying signal on my system for gold either so that means it is still trying to find a support. We are in a correction mode right now and buying on dips is still the mood for the market until the major supports are taken out. I posted this before about this pair.

Gold has reached key target 443.60-70 and also running on the bullish channel to test the main target (466.95) for this bullish move. The key target for gold in the long run still remains (468.91) with main target at (493.50-60) IMHO. Happy Holidays

Gold has come down hard today and bounced from the T/L (433.20-30) area. Next key support is around 427.50-60 and 422.50-60. Bottom support (429.40-50) should hold for now IMHO. GT

Of greater significance is the movement in gold. The recent fallout in gold ($15 daily move) and resulting large gap in futures predicated failures in major crossess to dollar (euro/cable/yen). Today's gold fallout, currently over $9 basis feb futures, suggests further failure in majors against buck. Also of note, in the pound the failure comes off technically perfect diamond pattern ( almost identical to S and P diamond formed 99-mid 2000). I believe lower levels coming.

If anyone is monitoring US stocks as a barometer for the USD today (bearing in mind the correlation is hit and miss), S&P Futures are challenging an upside break as I type after an initial selloff. Perhaps this would add weight to USD longs considering USD longs did not react to initial US stock weakness.

I'm out here on a EurGbp long @ 7088 from about 20 lower however from the Asian session which doesn't seem to want to go any further.

FWIW - Cable looks to be in most trouble here as it approaches last week's low around 1.91 - it's rally attempt to get back above 21 da sma failed and daily MACD has been down mid month move towards 1.96 - next stop 55 da ema?
USD/CAD is clinging to a rising 21 da sma after failing to stay above the 55 da ema breakout - MACD is poised to rollover so maybe some short term weakness BUT the rising 21 da sma should cross 55 ema for the first time since Fed started hiking rates - this looks bullish if the averages cross
USD/CHF needs to clear 1.15 level to turn bullish but there is some room for pips between here and there even if it fails at 21 da sma
Surprise may be the USD/JPY which has just crossed back above 21 da sma - if it can close above we may see the 1.06 level challenged again
AUD/USD has daily MACD trying to rise again but the declining 21 da sma is stabilizing after the mid month fast drop below .75 - maybe some short term strength but looks poised to test the 21 da line again under .77
EUR is spiking against sterling and the yen -- EUR/USD is not being supported by MACD on this last run so at least a test of 1.34 (~21 da sma) seems likely -- next week flows may throw all of the above into the digital shredder

FWIW: I you believe that history is likely to repeat itself here are some numbers for EURUSD for the month of January. Data covers 30 years. Up means Close > Open

Up 9
Down 21
Up Percent 30%
Down Percent 70%
Avg Up 206
Avg Down -384
Max Up 455
Max Down -1024

IF Dec closes Up then:
Dec Up and Jan Up 6
Dec Up and Jan Down 11
So 65% of the time if Dec closes Up then Jan wil close Down.

So for the month of January I will be looking to trade the Short side Heavy and the Long side Light.

Is the market trying to close the year with EUR/$ around its highest levels whichever they might be this week?

Here's an interesting historical case which I described again a long time ago. It refers to the huge USD decline during 1985-87 when $/DEM collapsed by more than 19,000 pips. On December 31 1987 $/DEM posted the year low at 1.5670. On the first trading day of 1988 and shortly after opening in Asia it dipped to 1.5610 for a new low of the gigantic downtrend and on the same day it rallied to 1.5895. The next day it surged to 1.6335 and a day later to 1.6700. That was the beginning of the long term corrective USD uptrend which lasted 1 1/2 years and brought $/DEM to the major top 2.0470 in June 1989. Next we saw the new megacycle of USD weakness which brought $/DEM down to 1.34 in 1995 before correcting up again. I am not saying that we shall see the same picture but it may be worth keeping a few historical long term major market movements in mind. PS I traded at 1.5615 that night long $/DEM as a broker friend of mine called me on the phone from the Far East, so I hit the absolute bottom, but unfortunately I took my profit in the mid 1.57s shortly after...

A Happy and Prosperous New Year to everyone here.

Frankly, Greeks and Italians don't think like Germans or French..not an insult..just a fact..oil and water don't mix. So it is no wonder the Euro is shakey. And I think it is. A single currency is a good idea on paper but like communism, it just doesn't take in the human factor...and this will be born out in the next 5 years.

Germans Still Holding on to Deutsche Marks
Almost three years after the introduction of the euro, German citizens still seem to have large hoards of Deutsche Marks, their old currency. Branches of the German Federal Bank or Bundesbank still record between 50 and 100 Deutsche Mark payments a day, a spokesman for the bank in Hamburg said. He added that Hamburg alone recorded exchanges of around 50,000 Deutsche Marks in the new currency daily. According to Johannes Korz, spokesman for the Bundesbank, around 8.1 billion Deutsche Marks (€4.1 billion) in notes as well as coins worth €7.3 billion Deutsche Marks were circulating by the end of August 2004. The Bundesbank in Hamburg said that the bank counted more than 3,000 customers in the month of August alone who exchanged around 1.5 million Deutsche Marks. The Bundesbank allows German citizens who still have Deutsche Marks at home to exchange these for free into euros at their branches throughout Germany.

whats up?
poped in to see the closing rates...
seems we may see a bit deeper correction down today toward first retracement level.
max 1,3485/95.
but basically still no serious threat on the horizont....

What's it gonna do? Support line could be drawn on the 30 day chart for E/$ from low of 12/16 to present. We've just touched down on the support line. MACD on that chart indicates it hasn't stopped. If we do keep going down then a slight retracement is in store. In light of null effect of consumer confidence positivity today and no interventions thus far (at least as far as I can percieve) then 1.3550 -1.3530 look to me as support possibilities. But that's IF that support line is punctured which at this point it is not quite yet...just touching.

U.N. Undersecretary-General and humanitarian chief Jan Egeland says U.N. hasn't yet put number on funding appeal, but it'll be its largest ever for a humanitarian emergency; "I have made big appeals in the past but this is unprecedented because very many countries are involved Billions of dollars needed to rebuild tsunami-shattered countries "

I have posted this before on the help forum but since it is a bit slow I don’t think Jay minds if I put it here for now. First you have to find out if you like this business first do not think that this will be easy money at all. If you do then you will not make it. Everything takes effort and time nothing in this life is easy at all. Learn the technical part of the business that is the easy part of it then you have to learn the physiological part of it that is the part most of us fail and takes more time. Use the archives in the FF and Help forum they should be very helpful. I have talked about many ideas too so you can look me up in the archives as well. It takes time and patience so you MUST LIKE THE BUSINESS to endure the pain you are about to begin IMHO. Welcome and I hope you succeed in your quest. Happy Holidays

Good post as usual BC

Tokyo trader cites talk of MOF checking rates since yesterday's Tokyo hours.
"I don't know whether they actually taken action, but I heard they were checking prices. U.S. hedge funds quite eager to test USD/JPY's downside, they've been ready to sell dollars ever since they came back from their Christmas holidays." trader
