Qindex 22:10 GMT //I concur with your views. At the time of the second rise last year I felt that it was very dangerous, although provided they drop back asap we may avoid many of the serious consequences. In addition to the prospect of recession I also believe that high interest rates are the greatest single threat likely to cause a runaway inflationary spiral. Not a nice combination since the two effects wont cancel out in crucial areas.

Qindex - Yes I have noticed from many articles property in Melbourne has come back considerably also Sydney, however here in Queensland think we were about a year behind the original rise, so the market is still reasonably boyant . Personally I cant see any collapse in housing market due to the RBA's foresight to increases early in the cycle but I dont see them raising again unless inflation really takes hold which I doubt. I can see rate rises in the UK affecting the property market as the property market far more, the Labour party were congratulating themselves with a strong economly - but with rates at 50year low it should be with most living on credit , UK rate will nodoubt reach 5.50% before we do, however Aussie Dollar wont like that, you can see why the RBA was selling so much Aussie during the recent highs building their reserves - as I have said before and agree with BC we will probably see the very low 70's before any real serious buying occurs . Life in the FX world has become far more compilicated since with far more aspect to consider -terrorism has change the landscape.

Melbourne Qindex 22:10 GMT March 21, 2004 Reply   
Brisbane L 22:03 GMT - Good morning! I am afraid we are going to face a recession pretty soon if RBA doesn't cut the rate in time. The down turn in the housing industry has a great effect. Most restrauants in Melbourne are having some trouble in business recently.

The spring is all wound up.The times of breakouts are always crucial and until the point of actual breakout the buying of the Cad does make sense.But a failure at 1.3365 can happen only if euro goes above 1.2330 and stays there which interestingly i don't see happening at the moment.

Trade of The Day:Sell Canadian Dollar at market with stop at 1.3280 for break and close above 200 SMA at 1.3345 and u might very well take profit in higher 1.30s.The last minute move on friday above 1.3305-20 is pointing to underlying weakness in the Canadian Dollar.

FX pairs trading: Be careful, take care and stay away if deep pockets are not something you already have.

In case that your positions cannot get into the total capital establishment within two weeks, then STAY AWAY.

USD will get some shots of injections, target: keeping the USD currency alive.

Stay away from USD if you are not sure that China will be able to inject/BUY non-stop USD – in case that China will not be able to keep buying USD as long as Japan did it means that we all are watching a historic moment – the sinking of USD followed by the sinking of the American empire.

USD needs a lifeguard as the current lifeguard (Japan) asks to leave; does the only available (China) can do the job the previous did?

Do let the Iraq/Afghanistan pro-US propaganda/news to mislead you, keep on economical facts – the conclusion is available to anyone who wants to see the truth.

selling or buying breaks is always hard without getting whipped on the retest - my personal view is its easier to anticipate a move than to react to a move - if you dont see it before it occurs give it a miss - pd cumino had a very good point place a spot position with option protection if you believe in a position so you dont get whipped out ay a high or low point - it may cost you an extra 10-20 points in equivalent premium but you still have your original position and dont hesitate and miss the move - something for all to think about - gt today

Tulga, that depends on a large extent on the Pakistani situation. Should the "targets" be NOT OBL or Mr. Z. , that probably would short the usd to a certain extent which then would push euro in 1.2330 - 1.2380 range again or perhaps higher.

NEWBIES ---- Selling or Buying on a Break 101

When selling or buying on a break, it is important to PREDETERMINE what your actions might be BECAUSE sometimes you have mere SECONDS to act. Generally, there are three courses of action. ONE, place a stop at your entry point once you are 15-20 pips UP. Two, CLOSE at the stall point which generally is at support (if selling or going short). Three (this is this GREED choice), hold postion open and try for BIG gain.

Using Friday as an example. price action broke DOWN on gbp/usd from the 1.8300 level. I requested a SHORT or SELL on GBP/USD. When price action is moving fast, you may get requoted at a price LESS favaorable than you requested (this is called slippage). So I was REQUOTED at 1.8282 and I accepted and was going short from that point.

It was thought at this time I might add that the Pakistani situation MIGHT be concluding with the capture or death of Ossama Bin Laden or his second in command (Mr. Z). This COULD have resulted in a swing towards the dollar of at least 100 pips. Perhaps 1,8200 on the pound and 1.2200 on the Euro. This factors in to the EMOTIONAL said of trading or GREED factor.

Then price action hit 1.8260 area on gbp/usd and momentarily stalled. Also of note is that HAD the Pakistani situation actually resulted in death or capture of OBL or Mr. Z, the support levels on the gbp/usd would have been easily broken at least on a temporary basis. It was at THIS point in time either a CLOSE for profit or a STOP loss at entry (1.8282) SHOULD have been entered. The emotional CHOICE number THREE was chosen and the postion was held open with a normal stop loss and action PROMPTLY came back and stopped out the positition.

While the loss for me was minimal, I was thinking afterwards how much more careful one must be when buying or selling on a break because of the rapid volatility of the situation, Don't let GREED alter your normal choice of action (which for me would have been to close when action stalled). PRE-DETERMINE what you might do when presented with these type of market conditions.

GL GT WATCH the breaks!!!

France Lucky Strike 14:46 GMT March 21, 2004 Reply   
That's a good thing. I began to compare their datas from last thuesday to see if there is a correlation with the reality, but it's a too short period to make any conclusion. On the ratio long/short, there is a pretty strong willing to short the usd/cad (75%), I'll follow the behaviour of this pair all the week to see if it will collapse.

Unfortunately, I don’t use it also, but surely will think about.
As forex market tends to be highly dependable by a number of
unexpected events which tend to be numerous, ability to
trade (maybe with some limits) on Saturday or Sunday adds
traders much more flexibility.

Also, interesting enough that if o**da prices are tradeable, right now there is a good opportunity to
make a kind of arbitrage. For example, sell EUR/USD @1.2435, buy EUR/JPY @131,11, sell USD/JPY @106,64.

Last week trading atmospher on all exchanges was much influenced by the fear of the existing terror. It looked like the world has developed a kind of focal-fear-fixation mechanism; Thus all the fears and phobias of the common minds were thrown in a simple way on what is going in Waziristan. It seemed the eyes on all exhanges were hooked on the the news ticker, just looking for news fron Waziristan. Early I was convinced that it is all out B.S., and so it came out to be . Now that we all intelligent traders know that it was all B.S about, our mental situation will definitely aggrevate as that fixation is no more relevant and things are suppose to become more obscure or uncertain with no fear-focal-point.

Copyright © 2004, Dow Jones Newswires

SYDNEY (AP)--Osama bin Laden's terror network claims to have bought ready-made nuclear weapons on a central Asian black market, the biographer of al-Qaida's No.2 leader was quoted as telling an Australian television station.

In an interview scheduled to be televised on Monday, Pakistani journalist Hamid Mir said that Ayman al-Zawahri claimed that "smart briefcase bombs" were available on the black market.

It was not clear when the interview between Mir and al-Zawahri took place.

U.S. intelligence agencies have long believed that al-Qaida attempted to acquire a nuclear device on the black market, but say there is no evidence they ever succeeded.

In the interview with Australian Broadcasting Corp. television, parts of which were released Sunday, Mir recalled telling al-Zawahri it was difficult to believe that al-Qaida had nuclear weapons when the terror network didn't have the equipment to maintain or use them.

"Dr. Ayman al-Zawahri laughed and he said `Mr. Mir, if you have US$30 million, go to the black market in central Asia, contact any disgruntled Soviet scientist, and a lot of ... smart briefcase bombs are available,"' Mir said in the interview.

"They have contacted us, we sent our people to Moscow, to Tashkent, to other central Asian states and they negotiated, and we purchased some suitcase bombs," Mir quoted al-Zawahri as saying.

Al-Zawahri's boast would not in itself prove the al-Qaida has actually succeeded in acquiring nuclear weapons.

Al-Qaida has never hidden its interest in acquiring nuclear weapons.

The U.S. federal indictment of bin Laden charges that as far back as 1992 he "and others known and unknown, made efforts to obtain the components of nuclear weapons."

Bin Laden, in a November 2001 interview with a Pakistani journalist, boasted of having hidden such components "as a deterrent." And in 1998, a Russian nuclear weapons design expert was investigated for allegedly working with bin Laden's Taliban allies.

sgp sp 02:56, I certainly didn't say that tou blamed me or anybody for nursing all night your position. But you called my trading suggestion a gamble repeating in your latest posting the word in capital letters. I consider it as the kind of trading suggestion that has consistently yielded a profit, hence I posted it here at the time. You know, I don't give gambling tips nor do I personally gamble in any form. If pn the other hand you consider Forex trading as a form of gamble, then our views differ and each one with his own.

Good morning Athens,

I read of your concern over one of the contra trades I picked up based on your reccommendations......don't worry abt it...notice I used the word : GAMBLE? It is exactly that.

The reason why I had to nurse it was I missed the spike up and later I added on at a lower level, put up a s/l and c whether I can catch the bounce up, which it finally did. So I exited the trade with a small profit. Lucky me.

Please note, whatever profits/losses I incurred based on others' reccommendations occurred becos it was MY DECISIONS to enter the trade.......nobody elses......so the blame lies with me.

If you read thru the archive, u will notice that I have never put blame on anybody for bad trades nor will I start.....ever.

So I so hope to see more of your posts in GV forum....as u had been posting less and less and I missed it more and more.
:) :) :)

pd cumino, a mortal sin? no, not at all. Have a good weekend and a profitable trading week..

Athens to say the true not only I didn't make judgements, doubts, or different views about the contra trades per se, but I found sincerly interesting your posts, expecially regard the concepts.
The only thing that I didn't agree was only about the possible ways to trade. I see possible (and even better in my wrong view) options combined with spot. That's all. It doesn't seem to me a mortal sin.

pd cumino, re your "If am not permitted to have a different view let me know", I believe in my earlier comment I wrote explicitly that you (and, of course, everyone here) can have as many doubts (and views) as you like about my comments and anything else. As you see, I am not dictatorial...
