U.S. House Democratic leaders on Thursday backed up campaign promises to repeal billions of dollars of tax breaks from the oil and natural gas industry and boost revenues for renewable energy and energy efficiency programs.

With a 264-to-163 vote, the House passed the CLEAN Act, a priority bill for new House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who vowed to advance the bill in the first 100 hours of the new 110th Congress' legislative session.

The bill, estimated to generate about $14 billion over 10 years for clean energy programs, would disqualify oil and gas companies from receiving a reduced corporate tax rate and also reduce the geological write-off for large energy companies.

Additionally, the legislation would push oil companies to rework Gulf of Mexico drilling contracts that allow them to escape paying drilling fees to the federal government. Energy firms that don't renegotiate the flawed leases would face new drilling fees or lose out on the ability to win future leases in the Gulf.

"The CLEAN Act starts to move our nation in a new direction," said House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md. "It is about the focus of precious taxpayer dollars and the future of our country."

Recent Central Banks' Rate Moves Favor U.S. Dollar, Lehman Says

By Bo Nielsen

Jan. 18 (Bloomberg) -- Investors should sell pounds against the dollar and buy Canadian dollars against the yen to take advantage of policy uncertainty created by British and Japanese central banks, Lehman Brothers Inc. said in a research note.

The intermarket relationship between USD/CAD and crude oil indicates that additional CAD weakness should be expected if crude pierces psychological support at $50, says a report from RBC Capital Markets. That outcome would highlight key long-term resistance at C$1.1974, followed by a Fibonacci retracement level at C$1.2045, RBC says in a report. Crude oil support is located at $47.57 and $45.36, it says

Survey: Richest Americans Cut Hedge Fund Exposure In 2006
Americans of ultra-high net worth - those households with $5 million or more, not including their primary residence - reduced their exposure to hedge funds in 2006, and the wealthiest subset trimmed its holdings the most, a survey found.

Hedge fund exposure among ultra-high net worth Americans fell to 14% last year from 17% in 2005, according to a mail and online survey of 526 qualified U.S. households conducted by strategic consulting firm Spectrem Group of Chicago. Of the richest Americans - those with more than $25 million, not including their primary residence - 27% owned hedge funds last year, down from 38% in 2005, a 29% decline, the survey found. Of that 27%, the mean hedge fund balance was more than $1.6 million.

Personal debt is growing by £1m every four minutes
About 130 experts met to discuss concerns about the growing levels of personal debt, with more IVAs expected this year. Accountants KPMG forecast up to 150,000 individuals will become insolvent in 2007, including both bankruptcies and IVAs.
The personal debt mountain is increasing by £1 million every four minutes, experts have warned.

Huge mortgages are mainly to blame for the soaring levels of debt, with the average size of a new home loan now £142,000.

A study of Bank of England data by the money education charity Credit Action shows total personal debt stands at £1,278billion.

Hedge funds feel the heat as oil prices fall
The warm northern winter is taking its toll on the trading floor, Tom Stevenson reports.
THE plants in northern hemisphere gardens may be confused about the unseasonably warm weather, but spare a thought for anyone trying to make a living in the oil market. On the trading floors, the losses are rising as quickly as the mercury.

Early-blooming roses face a nasty shock when winter arrives - but for the hedge funds betting on a bounce-back from last summer's oil price slump, rising temperatures have already been a disaster.

Rumours are circulating that one or more funds have lost their shirt on the latest slide in the oil price, which has fallen 15 per cent so far this year.

On Friday, world oil prices climbed to nearly $US53 a barrel, recovering from 19-month lows. New York's main oil futures contract, light sweet crude for delivery in February, gained $US1.11 to close at $US52.99 a barrel.

In London, the price of Brent North Sea crude for February delivery rose $US1.25 to settle at $US52.95 a barrel.

The belief that the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries would be able to support the price at $US60 or so has proved as misplaced as last year's consensus that the next stop after August's peak of $US78.40 was $US100 a barrel. Now the smart money is looking at $US50 or even lower.

The behaviour of the oil price has taken almost everyone by surprise. A year ago, the ugly stand-off between Russia and Belarus and nationalist sabre-rattling by Hugo Chavez in Venezuela would have sent the price soaring. But the downward pressure is so great that even Vladimir Putin has been out-growled by the bears in the financial markets.

The first whiff of an apparent suspension of hostilities between Russia and its satellite put the skids under the price again.

Most oil experts are pointing the finger at the weather and investors have developed a new fascination with websites like that of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. There they have learned that not only was 2006 the warmest year on record in the US but that, unusually, winter has failed to show up everywhere in the northern hemisphere.

Merrill Lynch commodity strategist Francisco Blanch says: "This winter has so far been substantially warmer than normal, even when factoring in global warming." He calculates that "synchronous global warm winter weather" has reduced oil demand by 38 million barrels a day during the first half of winter.

According to the Missouri-based forecaster Weather Derivatives, demand for fuel in the north-eastern states of the US, which account for 80 per cent of American heating oil consumption, will be 24 per cent lower than normal this week.

The US Energy Information Administration has cut its forecast for global oil demand by 210,000 barrels to 86.3 million barrels a day.

The effects of the warm weather have been compounded by a manufacturing slowdown in the fourth quarter and the continuing decline in construction.

Lower demand is only one side of the equation. On the supply side, too, pressure is easing. With countries such as Angola, Brazil, Canada and Russia producing an estimated 1.8 million new barrels every day, even a global economy growing at 4.4 per cent a year can't find a use for all the oil sloshing around the system.

Non-OPEC oil output was 3 per cent higher than a year ago at 51.7 billion barrels in the last three months of 2006, piling the pressure on the OPEC cartel to reduce its own production to keep the market in balance.

OPEC did agree to reduce its output by 1.2 million barrels a day in November, with a further 500,000 cut pencilled in for next month. But the producers have discovered that calling for a cut and having the discipline to see it through are two different things.

In December, OPEC countries pumped about 700,000 barrels of oil a day more than they had agreed. Even the most compliant nations - Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates - held back on 20 to 30 per cent of their promised cuts. The most vocal price hawks, Indonesia and Venezuela, simply left the spigots gushing.

Merrill Lynch's Blanch sees potential for the oil price to start rising again if the situation deteriorates in the Middle East. "While the current supply and demand trends suggest that there is relatively little upside pressure to crude oil prices, the geopolitics of energy is not getting any better," he says.

He believes pressures arising from Iran's nuclear program will continue to make it hard for the country to attract the foreign capital it needs to expand its oil and gas output.

The unwillingness of America's new Democrat Congress to sanction further financial or military commitments to Iraq should hamper improvement in production there. If Israel or the US launched an attack on Iran, all bets would be off.

But Tony Dolphin, an economist at Henderson Global Investors, thinks downward pressure is unlikely to ease off.

"It depends on the production of non-OPEC countries, which looks like being quite strong," he says. "If OPEC has to cut, the risks are on the downside."

The implications for other financial markets of oil remaining below $US55 could be significant, Dolphin says.

"It would be good for global growth, with more spending power for importing countries. A soft landing would be more likely," he says.

"But if the oil price stays down, the idea of interest rate cuts will disappear - and that could create nervousness and, ironically, be bad for stockmarkets."

So although a cold snap may kill off those overoptimistic cherry trees, it could soothe the frayed nerves on the trading floor.

Bernanke Warns of Possible `Fiscal Crisis' From Budget Deficit

By Scott Lanman and Craig Torres

Jan. 18 (Bloomberg) -- Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke said the U.S. government may face a ``fiscal crisis'' in the coming decades should it fail to deal with the rising costs of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid programs.

``If early and meaningful action is not taken, the U.S. economy could be seriously weakened, with future generations bearing much of the cost,'' Bernanke said today in written testimony prepared for a Senate Budget Committee hearing.

As far as eur/gbp goes, because of gbp strength it has been much more softer than I expected but that 6550 are is fairly strong support and i expect GBP will start to short now at a faster rate than euro so eur/gbp should climb back up to 6580-6600 area

Most Usd negative positions have been cached ahead of CPI and Bernanke speech later on, as there is big caution ahead of a bit higher inflationary epxectations for US:

CPI is called up 0.4% overall with a 0.2% rise expected on the
core. The bias is likely a bit higher on the headline index given the big jump in food and energy prices noted in the PPI Wednesday - Even if the November's revision on downward and less then expected TIC inflows have played a role yesterday. The housing starts report is expected to note further slowing in new construction though mild weather
could wreak havoc with the seasonals, pushing starts higher. The Philly Fed is called at 3.0 vs. -2.3 in December.

Elliot Wave theory USD/JPY looks to be in wave 3 of a 5 wave sequence that started at 101.68 (wave 1 = 101.68 to 120.86 followed by wave 2 correction from 120.86 to 109.01 (exactly 61.8% of wave 1).

Now wave 3 has been confirmed by breaking above the
high of wave 1 (120.86). This argues for wave 3 to top
out at a minimum of 128.19 and possibly as high
as 140.04.

After Fed speakers failed to give any clues as to the timing of rate cut, the USD is now zooming in on the US CPI later Thursday for direction. The consensus is for headline inflation to be up 0.5% and the core rate up 0.2% in December, both compared with unchanged levels in November. However, RBC Capital Markets reckons the lagged effect of higher producer prices could help push the core rate up to 0.3%. This is "potentially bullish for the USD in terms of rate expectations."

MARKET TALK: Risk Of JPY Reversal If Data Turns
Soft Japanese economic data, including larger-than-expected 0.3% fall in the tertiary index, a 2.3% decline in department store sales and a downward revision to the leading indicator all justify the Bank of Japan's decision to leave rates unchanged. "The data has just not provided the excuse to hike," says ABN-Amro, forecasting that the JPY will continue to languish unless there is a "reasonable improvement" in economic data. But there's a good chance this will happen after the recent 4-5 month lull in positive news, the bank adds. "The JPY is weak and carry trades are well populated, so the risk of a sudden JPY reversal is also high," the bank says

Bernanke Faces Democratic Demands to Focus on Jobs (Update1)

By Craig Torres

Jan. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Ben S. Bernanke, meet the Democrats. They want to know how you fit their agenda for change.

Democrats, in control of Congress for the first time in 12 years, want to discuss the Federal Reserve's mandate to create full employment, not just its commitment to low inflation. They want the Fed to stop defining wage gains as inflationary and aren't afraid to challenge Bernanke, the Fed's chairman, on interest rates. Click here

BOJ Governor Fukui confirms 3 dissenters wanted rate hike, but he also admits BOJ divided on assessment of how firm consumption is; still, says weak CPI doesn't necessarily rule out move (CPI could stay weak on falling energy prices), CPI to develop as expected, one-off factors behind sluggish consumption; those remarks suggest Fukui not bearish on economy, near-term rate hike still possible; also brushes off suggestions that BOJ caved to political pressure, saying decision not affected by non-economic (that is to say, political) factors

Focus on BoJ Governor Toshihiko Fukui news conference. First time that 3 members voted against a key decision since Oct 23.

BoJ report says Japan economy is weaker than forecast in Oct Half yearly outlook report. Japan CPI weaker than projected in October outlook. Japan CGPI seen weaker than expected. Japan economy seen moving in line with outlook. Weaker GDP growth due partly to revision in FY05/06 GDP and bad weather. January monthly report says Japan economy expanding moderately, keeps assessment unchanged.

St Louis Fed President William Poole says Fed is "well positioned where we are" on rates and inflation seems to be "gradually creeping down". Fed must be open to policy change but if economy meets the forecast then no need for early rate change. At some point will need to change policy, but does not know which way it will go. Will only lower rates if the new information is "pretty compelling. Comfortable with inflation range of 1-2%, prefer rate in middle of that range.

St Louis Fed President William Poole says he is not confident that the worst of the state of the US housing market is over. US could see failures of some local builders and even regional players. GSEs do not warrant AAA credits on the basis of their capital.

Choppy day for JPY, Cross/JPY, as JPY falling broadly across the board after BoJ Decision to keep rates unchanged, albeit by a 6-3 majority and not unanimous, and also the BoJ report that economy and CPI is somewhat weaker compared to Oct outlook.

USD/JPY pierces through 121.00 after working Very hard "pip" by "pip" to take out the barriers and stoploss there to fresh 13-month highs of 121.13 and still climbing, its highest level since Dec 2005 highs of 121.39-40, a break of 121.40 will see USD/JPY at its highest level in almost 4 years since March 2003 highs of 121.87. Hearing more barriers at 121.20/25/ 121.50/ 122.00.

Focus on BoJ Governor Toshihiko Fukui news conference now on his "explanation" for keeping rates unchanged. Also focus on possible FX comments from top MoF FX diplomat Hiroshi Watanabe after the sharp JPY fall post BoJ, should he comment on FX moves excessive.

To say more, not very much will change in economic terms if they hike tomorrow or at February. But that is not the same in political terms. If they think that, and if they are clever, I guess they will stay on hold. We will see.

Personally I am more skewed to a Japan rates on hold Thursday.
Anyway moves will be gradual and interest in the yen as a funding vehicle will remain strongly intact.
USD JPY history compared to i.r. spreads, i.e. when reducing spreads starts to have effects, and considering global growth at the time, is a lesson that everyone should have in mind IMHO.

Van Gacok -- if dollar yen goes up, the "reason" is not short squeeze of small fishes at 119 and below. shorting dollar yen carries heavy interest rate penalty and not many fishes short it for more than a few days. If small fishes are dollar bearish, they can buy high yielders, like cable.

BOJ Rate Hike Likely In February Or March - SG

BOJ decision to keep rates on hold was "natural given the weakness of consumer spending data" recently, says Akio Yoshino, market economist at Societe Generale Asset Management. But says BOJ likely to raise rates in February or March given broader strength of economy; news of 3 dissenters suggests board has members wanting to push ahead with rate hike.

Jan. 18 (Bloomberg) -- The Bank of Japan left its benchmark interest rate at 0.25 percent, appeasing government officials who say consumer spending and inflation are too weak to withstand higher borrowing costs.

Policymakers kept the overnight lending rate unchanged for a sixth month in a six-to-three decision, the bank said in a statement today in Tokyo. The July increase was the first since the world's second-largest economy started to emerge from seven years of deflation

MY view is that there will be no interest rate increase. The initial recation will be for it gap to say 1.3020 and the market will sell into it. The market is short USD now so later on they will buy it back and ultimately it will end up at roughly the same leveln we started this morning. Further on the whole carry trade scenario will continue.
As you pointed out if you had shorted USD say against GBP earlier at 1.9700 you now have a 35 point cushion or profit if you lock it in going into the announcement. Very nice.

There's a lot of chatter that USD/JPY will rise to 121/122 should there be no rise. What then is the forum's opinion if there is - my guess is USD/JPY moves to 119.70 and then comes back to current levels only to move higher later.

There is no fixed time it varies around 12:30pm Tokyo time, going by precedence if it takes longer there may be an increase - but no guarantee either way.

The Bank of Japan is likely to keep interest rates on hold this week, although the central bank's policy board has not entirely ruled out a rate rise, according to a report on the Web site of Japan's largest business daily.

Echoing a series of Japanese media reports this week, the Nihon Keizei Shimbun (Nikkei) said in its Wednesday online edition that BOJ policy board members are believed to be leaning toward delaying a rate rise until February or later.

Without citing sources, the report said opponents of a rate rise were suggesting the BOJ board wait for economic growth data for the October-December quarter, due in mid-February, before raising interest rates above the current 0.25%.

I'll take that bet mate :). The tertiary index came in at -.3% m/m. There hasn't been sufficient data to support consumer spending and this should be the final nail in the rate hike coffin. Just one man's opinion and there's no need to argue as it will be determined in 2 hours.

Little possibility for BOJ to murder Jap pension funds which has invested trillions abroad. BOJ will maintain pace of rate hike, if any today, at speed of a turtle..

NY RP 01:13 GMT January 18, 2007 Reply   
Gold moved nicely through 630 today. The bottoming phase always brings volatility. Sure will be fun when the 650 gatekeeper is stomped.

The BOJ decision itself is not overly important. The reaction will be the driver. Close your eyes and imagine they raise rates. Now keep them closed and imagine they do not. Well you probaly get the same image for both, either way is possible. So in times like these, shining up those dice and letting them fall where they may is the game. I see this event being over played. I hear traders talking about putting the carry trade back on. Did I miss something? I never saw it unwind. Are we not at highs on all Yen pairs? Maybe tonight is a good Discovery night? Pretty interesting stuff on future weapons. Good luck.
