I hope they dared a giant party in Irak tonight, ending on the first lights or dawn by going arresting all their terrorists still in bed.

I lived in Arab coutries: Marakesh Arab city only in the early seventies, those people know their neghbors, and track newcomers.
The terrorists are at risk from a counterpunch.

(OK, May be it's mainly wishfull thinking.)

JP and whomever feels concerned:

Imagine Bush writes YOU, this, and now the following on GVI:

Fellow north american JP, would you aknowledge now and for history that for the better of Mankind, I succeeded in my undertakings in Irak by giving them this free election, first one ever in an Arab or Muslim country; and even Roosevelt, or the Playboy Liberal from Boston everybody loves never came close achieving anything like that.

Today, history will judge, I liberated the Arabs.

Focus: A Warning For USD Bears
We remain long -term bears on the USD owing to the size of
the US economy’s external imbalances and the continuing
trend of central bank foreign exchange reserve
The four clear risks to our view this year are accelerated US
interest rate hikes, unexpectedly tighter fiscal policy, G7
intervention to support the USD and the return of equity
capital inflows into the US.
On the last factor, our censored client data is showing that equity
flows may be returning to the US from Europe for the first
time since September 11 2001. This is a clear short-term risk
to our underlying bearish USD view.
We remain long-term bears on the USD owing to the size of the adjustment needed to help reduce the US current account deficit and the continuing trend of central bank foreign exchange reserve diversification.

The four clear risks to our bearish USD view in 2005 are:-
Firstly, the Fed raises rates at a more aggressive pace without
upsetting domestic asset markets;

Secondly, The second Bush administration shifts stance and
starts to tighten fiscal policy in a credible manner;

Thirdly, the G7 decide to agree to co-ordinated intervention to
stop the USD from falling;

Fourthly, capital inflows especially equity portfolio flows and
foreign direct investment return to the US as foreign investors
decide the weakness of the USD and relative strength of the US economy make it attractive to buy US assets again.
On the last risk factor, there seem to be clear signs that foreign appetite for real US assets finally seems to be picking up five years after the bursting of the US equity bubble. T

The latest quarterly balance of payment data from the US
Commerce Department. This shows inward foreign direct
investment into the US rising in Q3 2004. Similarly the monthly
US Treasury TIC data has shown a resumption of US equity
buying by foreign investors in th e last couple of months to
November 2004. But what intrigues us is our own censored equity client flow data. Every week we track our proprietary cross border flows. As censored sees almost ten per cent of all secondary equity trading globally,our data provides a representative, timely sample of equity flows

gold coast martin 15:04 // Thanks. I find that mouthing my view aloud tends to have NEGATIVE effects on my judgement at times-- (EGO and such). So I am very careful about what I say. I only post in the direction I am trading-and sometimes it is easier to change direction in mid stream if I did not commit myself to public view. OTOH when I post-- I sometimes use it to TEST myself and my results. I aim to make money, not to talk.

UN Iraq Election Adviser: Good Turnout In Most Areas
BAGHDAD (AP)--The U.N.'s chief adviser to Iraq's election commission, Carlos Valenzuela, said Sunday that turnout seems to be good in most places, although he warned that it was too early to know for sure.
He said there were lines at polls in Mosul, and some voters in Fallujah and Ramadi.
"There have been a number of attacks of course, as expected," Valenzuela said. But, he said: "These attacks have not stopped the operations."
Iraqis turned out to vote Sunday in their country's first free election in a half-century, defying insurgents who launched deadly suicide bombings and heavy mortar strikes at polling stations.

The coming Australian dollar collapse believe the Australian dollar is going to collapse to 64-66 cents in the next six months and therefore recommend Aussie shorts in the spot FX market, sale of Aussie futures and long put option contracts on the Chicago IMM. If I am right (and I may well be wrong - FX is the mother of all treacherous leveraged financial casinos!); investors in the UAE who agree with my Aussie dollar view can well earn 200 to 400 per cent on strategic option trades.

Microsoft's Gates, World's Richest Man, Bets Against the Dollar
Jan. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Bill Gates, the world's richest person with a net worth of $46.6 billion, is betting against the U.S. dollar.

``I'm short the dollar,'' Gates, chairman of Microsoft Corp., told Charlie Rose in an interview in front of an audience of about 200 at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. ``The ol' dollar, it's gonna go down.''

Gates's comments reflect the same view as his friend Warren Buffett, the billionaire investor who has bet against the currency since 2002. Buffett said last week that the country's trade gap will probably further weaken the dollar, which fell 21 percent against a basket of six major currencies between January 2002 and the end of last year.

``It is a bit scary,'' Gates said. ``We're in uncharted territory when the world's reserve currency has so much outstanding debt.''

The U.S. is borrowing to finance record budget and trade deficits. Total U.S. government debt stood at $7.62 trillion as of Jan. 27, up 8.7 percent from a year earlier.

Forbes magazine's list of billionaires ranks Gates, 49, No. 1. Buffett, 74, is second, with more than $30 billion. Almost all of it is in Berkshire stock.

The two have been friends for years, taking vacations together and playing online bridge. Gates in December joined the board of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., the investment company that Buffett runs.
