Getting Inside Greenspan's Head (FXA)

The April US non-farm payrolls numbers and for that matter nearly every component in the latest month's employment report indicated a labor market kicking into gear over two years into a recovery and more recently behind robust growth rate fuelled itself by strong corporate profits, solid consumer spending and an extraordinary round of tax cuts and spending increases. Firms, households and the government are spending. Perhaps not with reckless abandon. But in a synchronized fashion that has not been observed in several years. For most observers of central banking, the case for tightening policy is strong. It is stronger today than Tuesday when then Fed chose to leave rates on hold at 46-year low, but it was arguably strong on Tuesday. CLICK HERE for the Full Story in Our New Research Section

... 10-years yielding a sizable 3.767% over the fed funds rate and no clear indication as to when the Fed will tighten monetary policy. Fed funds futures are pricing a 92% probability of a quarter point hike at the June meeting and a 45% likelihood of a half point move...but like all forward indicators, they are subject to error. Just over a month ago futures were looking for the first hike in September.

CK/GEP/JWD - learned my lesson after a complex straddled possie was badly whipsawed earlier in the week with the FOMC announcement. Made it back today when my long euro rode up the spike immediately to my platform too - filled my hastily thrown-in stop to lock 50 pips in with never a hint of a rejection or re-quote.

well friends, you all have a nice weekend. If anyone happened to take note of who (banks or specs) was on the bids in cable and euro during the pre data fiasco and is willing to share that with me, please contact me through Jay.

I ended up not trading after my positions were spiked it is not wise to trade while throwing stuff in a fit of rage.

Next week will be interesting.....cable being supported by carry traders in gbp-jpy again, and the smart folks dumping euro for Sterling....but that shouldn't support it forever.

$Cad hit the weekly channel top again today, $Yen is close to hitting its Trendline around 113, Aussiie should sell off off into oblivion in the next several weeks.

Under the conspiracy theory, the FBI as you know has been investigating HOW the number got leaked the last time. I would not doubt that is is POSSIBLE that in a cooperative effort with the "Guilty party or parties" Bad info COULD have been leaked prior to official release to see WHO may have placed orders based on that bad info. THESE are NOT small players!!!! I would NOT want to be one of those caught in this deal.

This was the FIRST time I can remember that the market swung so fiercely the WRONG way just prior to release. I had a friend who tired to bracket the market by taking a SHORT @ 1.2071 with a STOP at 1.2110 and HE ALSO had a long ORDER @ 1.2130 with a stop @ 1.2050. So market takes off LONG at first STOPS him out @ 1.2110 on the original 1.2071 short, THEN takes the 1.2130 LONG order and THEN of course GOES SHORTwhen REAL number is announced and STOPS him out again @ 1.2050 on his LONG from that 1.2130. THIS SHOULD NEVER have happened but it did and it was a HUGE position for him anyway. The REALLY bad thing about this is his platform WOULD NOT allow him to adjust stops at the time it was rapidly moving. THERE are MANY lessons to learn from this.

Although the comment below refers directly to US Treasuries it aplies equally to FX.

"Treasuries: The market continues its downward spiral, as firms revise Federal Reserve rate hike expectations, bringing them up to the June 30 FOMC meeting, looking for the rate ratchet ride to begin. Early, just before the release, in a moment strangely reminiscent of the previous payrolls report, "somebody thought they had the number before hand," the wrong number in this case. The rumor, which caused a run up in the currencies against the dollar and a pop in prices in treasuries, had been "much, much lower, but, after the last go around [the previous, actual release leak], the market fell for it."

Question: The US bond market is likely to keep falling. Will this not weaken the dollar? And if this is true how does this square with interest rates making the dollar stronger?

And what is causing dollar strength now and do most of the traders see dollar weakness later this year?

Could not agree more..folks like GEP make this forum worth visiting. No one can be right 100% of the time, those who forget that are the "chop busters", those who appreciate gurus like GEP posting (like the rest of us!) can benefit.

Folks, always remember to look at the big picture first, then the 1min/1hr candle second. That way you are never surprized. On the wall in front of me I've a printout of a 10 year eur/usd chart just to remind me of the big-big picture and another of the 5 yr. for a smaller "big" picture and another of the 1 year. This is why neither good news nor bad news affects this graph..the path of major currencies is predestined by those who control the world's money. Cycles permit underdogs like China and India to flourish when majors permit (by cycling). Without preordained cycles the world could never develop no more than a peach tree would bear fruit without a winter. You can believe that or not but numbers simply don't lie. Look at the big 10 year cycle picture.

St.Louis SAJ/////Quote:
However, with geopolitical and economic uncertainties looming larger in the oil-rich Gulf States and in Asia, we believe that markets will increasingly focus on alternative possible price trajectories. As a consequence, we flesh out two alternative scenarios around our revised central case.

In one — our worst case scenario — serious political troubles in Saudi Arabia trigger a supply disruption. If the Kingdom is not able to play its marginal supplier-of-last-resort role in today’s taut market conditions, we might well re-visit price levels not seen since the second oil shock (USD 80 /bbl in 2004 dollars) before the transfer of income from oil consumers to producers chokes off global demand sufficiently to clear the market. At the other end of the spectrum, a second scenario involves an easing of political tensions in the Middle East, combined with a sharp slowdown in China that would send prices plummeting to the low twenties; we assume in this alternative that OPEC discipline would weaken if its members had to cope with a sudden loss of revenue and income

For those of you who may be a bit overwhelmed by this move (which gives me plenty of weekend money!!) look at the 1day/6 month candle chart. This move is the "massive short" eur/usd I was talking about a few days ago soon to come "anytime now" that now is here. My USD check is lookin' nice. (remember that?) It doesn't take much finesse, math, charting and hokus pokus mumbojumbo to have seen this OBVIOUS move. This move is exactly like the ones preceeding it like 8 beads on a string from 2/18, neither early nor late...right on time. And it ain't done yet, needs more than today to belly whomp the temporary bottom. Keep shorting. Hope you all got in on this JUICY one, if not there's more to go. Now the eur/usd 1.17 & 1.16 players may have a fighting chance..hope so!!

B-747... look at 5 & 10 year about a month we'll see 500-600 + pips and your 1.24+ as this move is a repeat starting 6/30/2003 ending 8/31/2003. We've one more stair to go before we descend for 3-4 years in the normal 10 yr. cycle.

Back to more useful things. I THINK the BIG moves are over and contra moves will be in play. THIS IS DANGEROUS howver unless you maintain tight stops. For example, I think EUR/USD might go back up to 1.1920 anyway. So a long from 1.1885 with a stop @ 1.1865 MAY work. The danger is that we MIGHT have some continuations but with tight stops the risk can be minimize.

jv 15:01 - I agreed with yours. US bonds keep declining due to the hope of earlier rate hike of FED. That may lead to a collapse of dollars as in 90s. US is having a hill mountain of Debt. HK Monetary Authority has gained 168 billions at the 1Q of 2004 but lost it all within the month of April 2004 due to the hope of earlier rate hike of FED. It will force them to sell out more US bonds in this month of May. Other Big Asian holders will do the same. Then it will become a big headache for Alan Greenspan as US is still borrowing money by Issueing more Bonds to financing their current account deficit. Dollar will collapse once the market gets the alert no sooner or later. At that time, everytime there was US good data, the dollar will dive deeper and deeper.

The July fed funds futures have pushed up the likelihood of a Fed move at the June meeting to an 88% chance of a 25 basis point hike and 44% chance of a 50 basis point bump.

This is a bit late but ...

Economic release: March wholesale inventories rose 0.6% as sales surged 2.7%. The result is a drop in the inventory to sale ratio to a new record low of 1.13 months -- screaming for accelerated inventory rebuilding over the coming quarters. Lack of available supply risks lost sales as extremely strong demand has left a 2.4% average jump in sales over the last two months.

Tel-Aviv ZG 14:17 GMT - my take is the MPC raised this week and we have a v. strong probability of a June FOMC hike of 25 bps. EURGBP has been pressured because as we ll know the ECB will do nothing. Also unlike EZ data, UK and US numbers are typically strong, EZ's are not. FWIW.

Cable often follows GBPJPY and also closely tied to EURO. Euro down would normally help cable drop. GBPJPY up would normally help cable rise. In effect, we have some temporary equilibrium in cable price. If GBPJPY drops today, I would expect cable to follow with a substantial move down.

NZD/USD has been dragged lower by the continued fall in the
AUD and the metals, with gold dropping under $380 and the lows since October last year fall in the gold price is expected to accelerate with hedge funds said to be long the yellow metal, having funded these plays with low-yielding USD and other low yield currencies. The global tightening cycle is forcing a squeeze on these plays, as well as the high yielding currencies such as NZD & AUD. Further pressuring gold have been the reports in the last two weeks that France and Germany and maybe even Italy will start selling their gold reserves in order to offset their budget deficits, and put further pressure on the metals market. reuters

Many of us have been in that position. I know I have more than once. Spotforex NY is, of course, correct. Eventually, I learned that it is never too late to employ a money management strategy. So if you do not at this moment have a plan that you can live with then exit and cut your losses. From my experience: IT CAN GET WORSE!

Just back home from a late appointment. I go long EUR/$ at 1.2032 and short USD/JPY at 109.66 today. Before I left the office for a meeting, I left profit lmit order for EUR at 1.2120 and stop order at b/e, and profit limit order for USD/JPY at 119.21 and stop order at 111.21. The sudden move before the employment payroll hit my both profit orders. The more interesting things to follow is it hit my stop order 1-3 mins afterwards.
So I am now short EUR from 1.2032 and long USD/JPY from 111.21.Now the prices are 1.1926 and 111.87.
The most impressive experience in my almost 15 years of fx trading trading life. This time, God really treats me not bad.

The kiss of death in trading is not having the proper risk management skill......I am sure you are thinking that by adding to your current losing position - you may get out of the trade with a break even (and a victory).....That is not the way to tackle the market.....

establish guidelines and a $ amount of risk on each trade.
It is the discipline that keeps one in the game.....

You should know where you would get out when the position was originally established...

just received this analysis in an email from a friend...

"With the three-month growth in payrolls at 236,000 and with other labor market indicators, such as unemployment claims at the end of April, pointing to further strength in the labor market, the missing link of the recovery story appears to have been found. When combined with signs that core inflation may be rising, we have to think that the Fed will likely raise rates at the June 30th meeting rather than wait until August 10th. Since the Fed suggested it would like to move in quarter-point increments, we think that the funds rate will be 1.25% at the end of this quarter, 1.5% at the end of the third quarter, and 1.75% at the end of the year."

Reprise of NY Opening Yen comments
The recent yen performance had been disappointing even before the resignation of Chief Cabinet Secretary Fukuda today. He was the top aide to PM Koizumi. Yen weakness is coming from four primary sources. The first has been the start of a pattern of rising interest rates abroad. Note that bond markets are moving ahead of the central banks. The second major factor has been concern about the impact of rising global oil prices on the economy, and the third has been a topping out of equity indices in Japan for now. Foreign investors are no longer rushing into Japanese equities. The fourth major concern is the prospective slowdown demand from the booming Chinese economy. Also major long-term players already made their commitments to long yen positions at the start of the current fiscal year around the $/yen 105-106 levels. Major resistance levels in the $/yen are just above the 111.00 line and then above 112.30. Exporters are said to be sellers up here, but they are unlikely to be able to stand in the way of significant adjustments by major position players.

the change in goods producing employment, i.e. manufacturing is 42. last month was 82. the trend is actually moving down. this is what traders may be focusing on as it shows no growth in the manufacturing sector. mostly all of the gains were in the services sector. resonable to predict this as most of the u.s. is a service related economy. however, without growth in the manufacturing, don't look for any interest rate hikes any time soon.

if all will remember last month, after the release, and shock, the market was pretty much rangebound for the next few hours being friday. not sure that we will see much more out of today. maybe not enough to enter new positions.

Economic release: April nonfarm payrolls rose a far stronger than expected 288K as March was revised to an even stronger 337K gain. The unemployment rate fell off to the 5.6% level seen in Feb as hourly earnings rose 0.3% (2.2% yoy) and the workweek held at 33.7 hours. Very strong data which will spur expectations for a June or August Fed tightening. sides with a June tightening bias and an August policy move.

Nonfarm payroll employment increased by 288,000 in April, and the
unemployment rate was about unchanged at 5.6 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor reported today. The April in- crease in payroll employment follows a gain of 337,000 in March, and job growth again was widespread. In April, employment rose substantially in several service-providing industries, construction continued to add jobs, and there was a noteworthy job gain in durable goods manufacturing.

Unemployment (Household Survey Data)

Both the unemployment rate, 5.6 percent, and the number of unemployed persons, 8.2 million, were essentially unchanged in April. The unemployment rate has been either 5.6 or 5.7 percent since last December. The unemploy- ment rates for the major worker groups--adult men (5.0 percent), adult women (5.0 percent), teenagers (16.9 percent), whites (4.9 percent), blacks (9.7 percent), and Hispanics or Latinos (7.2 percent)--were little changed over the month. The unemployment rate for Asians was 4.4 percent in April, not seasonally adjusted.

I don't know what you think but for me, the market looks ready to go further up as if bad us datas was expected.Anyways it is positionned to go up and the us datas could be the pretext for a new high. Then, i've got a buy order on euro at 1.21 tp 1.2140 and a sell order at 1.2043 tp 1.2010. I may keep the trade engaged depending of the surprise the datas could give and the strengh of the trend.
Have a good one!

Following slight declines in the previous two months, employment rose by an estimated 50,000 in April, all in full-time jobs. The unemployment rate fell by 0.2 percentage points to 7.3%, the lowest since September 2001.

April's increase in employment brings job gains since August 2003, when the recent upward trend began, to 235,000 (+1.5%).
More full-time jobs

Full-time employment increased by 56,000 in April while the number of part-time jobs changed little. So far in 2004, full-time employment has grown by 117,000 (+0.9%) while part-time employment has fallen by 87,000 (-2.9%). This continues the trend observed over the last four months of 2003 when employment growth was mainly in full-time work.

The FTSE 100 has added to yesterdays 53-point slump as losses in heavyweight telecom stocks weigh on the index. "There are two major concerns people have got at the moment," said Andrew Bell, a strategist at investment managers Carr Sheppards Crosthwaite.

"One is oil prices and what does that say about growth and, in the back of peoples minds, is the continuing bad newsflow from the Middle East." Brent futures are hovering close to 13-year highs and traders suggest oil could break through $40 a barrel.

Spin after the release of today's employment figures is more important than ever - there is apparently a large short position in treasury futures - even a good number may get spun away from a Fed move so any initial reaction in FX to a headline figure may run into the bond market

Good morning,

EUR/USD (currently 1,2060), 100 pips lower than Thursday's opening. The market stopped on the 1,2170 we had been calling for quite some time now (200 periods moving average on the daily chart) before beeing rejected to current levels (1,2000-50 supportive zone) with better than expected initial jobless claims. 1,2000 needs to hold if the market wants another chance to break 1,2170 resistance. The bearish USD scenario is still in place. Supports above 1,2000, with crutial resistance at 1,2180. Above opens way to 1,2350-1,2450 medium term. Watch out today for the US nonfarm payrolls data, they will be the trigger of any EUR/USD move. Overall we are now bullish and we'll be looking for purchases around 1,2000.

Data out today:

GER ind production March expected 0.6% 10.00 GMT
EURozone OECD leading indicator Mar 10.00 GMT
US unemployment rate April expected 5.7% 12.30 GMT
US change in nonfarm payrolls April expected 170K 12.30 GMT
US wholesale inventories Mar expected 0.5% 14.00 GMT

Gold at 386.50, with WTI June at 39.41

USD/JPY (110,40). The pair has been rising on USD general strengh and poor japanese stocks performance (5 negative days in a row). 109.50 is now a support and resistance stays around 110,80-11,20 (lots of stops above). Once again nonfarm payrolls will trigger next move later today.
EUR/JPY currently 133.10 we still believe 133.50 is looking toppish, support now at 131.30-50.

Cable (currently 1,7900) following the much anticipated rate hike, GBP is the curency that resisted best against the USD. Support still at 1,7860, then 1,7800 and 1,7700, resistances at 1,8000 then 1,8150 (50 periods moving average on the daily chart). The market seems rather bullish, but charts show a different picture and GBP is not out of the woods as long as 1,8200 has not been printed. Overall we are neutral.
EUR/GBP (0,6740) retraced sharply to 0.6720 and looking to build a base there. Trading range for today : 0,6720-60, we'll be looking to buy the dips today, we still believe in a move up to 0,6870 medium term.
Have a nice day,

well you all have helped me immensely(sp) and here is my chance to give back.

So, if you want a non-forex option play on the QQQ
buy long option 34 May Call option (price should be ~1-1.25/contract) only if QQQ trades below 34.65. Other plays that I have found more profitable but more risky have been to play Ebay or Yahoo instead of QQQ when a QQQ signal is given. Usually I play $1000 - $1500 in contracts.

These trades have been profitable 9 out of 12 times since the beginning of the year (although since I am going out on a limb and starting to post here when the play comes in "tim contrarian rule" is effect, sorry Biscuit).

Anyhow, profit target is +.90-1.10/ QQQ contract or double entry of Ebay/Yahoo entry price. There is no stop since downside risk (ie filling a .05/contract) is a bogus reality.

Exit if:
(1) QQQ price trades below 33.42 or
(2) 1/2 option entry price or
(3) gets to Thursday of next week.

These are short term (1 week only) plays and there is a chance you can lose all your "invested" option money. (ie option expires worthless)

If we get an entry signal I will post updates next week for exits etc ...

This is a contrarian play, hence there is big risk of market tanking and contracts expiring worthless. I will be posting these plays as they arise usually 2 times / 3 weeks unless Jay/John won't allow non forex postings and if you all like it.

XAU Gold and Silver Producers Index. And I must say that the
chart looks quite bad.

"Yes, the 'Three-System' triple tops (trend, stochastic and
Bollinger) of 1/6, 2/17 and 4/1 look ominous indeed. But it is
the penetration through this falling trend's bottom band on
4/28, followed by the failure to regain footing within that
trend, that indicates an impending failure of almost
catastrophic dimensions.

"Should this indication hold out (and it is one of my most
reliable patterns), the next move for the precious metals
producers will be a 9.73% drop to 74.8 within the next five
trading days. And from there it could easily go from bad to
much, much worse, as a well-established run and drop pattern
with this steep angle of attack would peel off half the value of
this group within 30 to 45 trading days."

Thank you Qindex - using your market terms if i may, the rhythm will continue in periods of days, ( smaller cycle ) 2 , 3 , 5 and 8 etc. example euro will either turn today or continue downwards until monday etc... 5th May came within a bigger cycle, so bias is down mid term. Last three major cycle periods put euro tops in place. 1.2927 - 1.2421 and so far 1.2180.

BRISBANE L...I did post a correction on the range....7185-7210 instead of 7155...typo....this range will hold into the european session until the payroll data..Another dovish statement from greenspan will produce a usd sell-off in a measured dose as the market has already had dovish statements from greenspan before and it is becoming immuned to it.In the event of a mild usd sell-off i dont expect the aud to breach 7235 as its short to medium destiny at the moment is mainly pre-occupied with the drop in commodity demand from china due to chinas attempt to put the brakes on their booming economy...Not to mention japanese assett repatriation that has been happening over the last 3 weeks{i did focus a little on this in one of my posts 3 weeks ago).g/l g/t

sgp sp 03:08 GMT - GBP/JPY : In fact the odds are very good at the current level. The trouble is this pair is currently governing by a 3- month projection profile and its market rhythm is represented by 609 pips. That is the reason why I would keep my mouth shut and don't want to upset any more forum viewers in case the market is consolidating in their defined range.

Brisbane L 03:18 GMT May 7, 2004 Reply   
Gold Coast Martin In your view can the range 7155- 7210 hold into Europe, or do you see a sharp sell off when they see these lower levels and read the Dovish stance of the RBA .
and congratulation on your call

sp, gd morning, pity that you can't join tonight!

If aud and nzd starts a South journey from here till year end, think aud/nzd will bottom out at around 1.1410.
BUT if aud and nzd decides to bounce instead of south in m/t first, then, I think aud/nzd target is 1.11 especially after hiking yesterday.

Westpac Expects Another Aussie Rate Hike FWIW

Bris th 02:15 GMT May 7, 2004 Reply   
Auction volumes and clearance rates continued to flounder this week, confirming the Reserve Bank’s decision to leave rates on hold. The volume of auctions held in Brisbane remained stable this week, while the clearance rate rose. 54 auctions were held, compared to 55 last week and 49 in the same week last year. The adjusted clearance rate bounced from 43% last week to 62% this week. At the same point in 2003, by comparison, the adjusted clearance rate stood at 53%. On the Gold Coast this week, 44 auctions were held at a dismal adjusted clearance rate of 24%. This is a level of activity much the same as recorded now for the last four weeks. The week’s biggest auction was in Sydney. 9 Arthur Street Dover Heights was sold for $2.76 million by Ray White, Double Bay. Melbourne hosted the richest auction outside of Sydney this week. 20a Outlook Drive, Eaglemont was sold for $1.25 million by Duncan McIntyre Real Estate.

AUD/USD breach of 0.7270 has reinstated downside risk toward 0.7070 Initial support at 0.7180, with initial resistance at 0.7240. Pair fell overnight after surprisingly steep decline in U.S. jobless claims, ahead of non-farm payroll data due tonight. AUD/USD last at 0.7230.

Biscuit boy...Hope you made some crumbs from the downward bias of the nzd ..In relation to the RBA official statement dont expect a smoking gun that will reverse the downward trend of the AUD..the statementwill merely state that the RBA will always be vigilant in watching inflation and the now declining property market and be flexible to react to market conditions...As far as interest rate hikes are concerned the RBA WORDING on this matter could beinterpretedby the market as they have not ruled further hikes out and will react when the economy needs to keep the stimulus in the economy on an equilibrium...there may be a knee jerk reaction by the market sfter the relesse but after 1 hour or so the aud will resume its downward bias to 7185 leading up to the payroll data tonite.....g/l g/t

ny amc 00:12 GMT : In the case of 44-day cycles and 3-month projection profiles they may govern the market movements at the beginning or at the end of its cycle period. Their market rhythm is usually represented by 250 - 500 pips. It is the magnitude of their market rhythm that generate the market volatility. In other words if I am expecting a market movement of 250 - 500 pips in a few days, in general I will look for the right 44-day or 3-month projection profiles to describe the market behavior.
