[Dow Jones] December Japan nationwide core CPI +0.1% on-year, tad slower than 0.2% increase tipped by economists surveyed by Dow Jones, Nikkei. With sluggish pace of CPI increase and some forecasts for core CPI to fall below zero again this year on wearing off of higher energy prices a year earlier, expect political pressure to remain on BOJ to refrain from rate hike soon.

AUD/USD needed to slide farther to wipe out and clear the dreams of many trying their luck as they awaken to a nightmare.
Now as the stops have been clearing and the predictions false by the so called experts that tried to pick a bottom earlier and post a gazillion book pumps here will the Oz begin to find respite and move higher.

KAP, gbp/jpy is a very aggressive pair. Most traders should not trade it because it is highly volatile and the support and resistance points on the pair are roughly 60 pips apart so you can make a minor mistake with your entry and be quickly 60 pips down. If you make a bigger mistake it can easily move 200 pips against you in ONE day. When I trade it I do so with fairly wide stops and the possie size is SMALLER than with other pairs. If you are SELLING or shorting gbp/jpy , it is a VERY expensive pair to hold . For future reference pairs that move much less aggresively are eur/gbp and eur/chf

[AUD/USD] collapsed like a house of cards slumping from an earlier high of 0.7819 to an o/n low of 0.7729 despite the US posting a slightly softer jobless claims and existing home sales. Most of the blame should go to the continuing liquidation of high yielding currencies against the Jpy which has seen both the AUD/JPY and NZD/JPY retreating from its recent highs. The pair was also affected by the softer commodity prices giving market players additional reasons to sell it. With no economic releases today due to the Australia Day holiday, market players will likely trade a tight range ahead of a slew of data out of the US. There are some bids at the 0.7720 but more at 0.7700 by a European which will protect the downside while selling orders at 0.7760 by a Swiss name will limit upside gains.

Japan's [CONSUMER PRICES] due at 23.30GMT are expected to be broadly stable. The nationwide headline and core CPI are likely to rise 0.3% y/y and 0.2% y/y respectively in Dec, both the same rate as in Nov. Tokyo headline and core CPI are both expected to rise 0.2% y/y in Jan vs 0.3% y/y and 0.2% y/y resp in Dec. The CPI data are closely monitored as strong figures will tip market expectations in favour of a rate hike at the BOJ's next board meeting on Feb20/21. Recall, Fukui commented after the Dec meeting that the CPI/CGPI had been 'somewhat weak." The comment led to much uncertainty about the Jan meeting, though it eventually kept rates unchanged but with 3 dissenters favouring a hike. The [Dec CSPI] is expected to fall 0.1% y/y, the same rate as in Nov, while the m/m reading may be flat amid weak demand for biz-to-biz services.

tnx 4 the answer - for the bigger picture on Yen/carry theme I follow the newsflow.. I understand that stronger CPI will push the BOJ into tightening... and will endanger carry trades..
I actually thought you talk about some particular CPI fugure that is circulating (like the market talks before UK or US CPI and so on..)
btw - just outside the spin atm going around - - it's really interesting to me how the market works right now:
last week before the corrective moves had began - nearly everybody was like "they can hike .25 and it's still free money... and now after the big money are moving around there is some media spin that is going on (mostly about the G7 meeting) and the opinions are suddenly reversed
- I think when profit taking is over smart money will just buy carry again at low levels and everything will start the same way again..

Federal Reserve Welcomes New Voters: What Does This Mean for Monetary Policy
The Federal Open Market Committee’s first policy setting meeting of 2007 on January 30th will mark the start of a regime change within in the Federal Reserve. An annual rotation will strip regional Fed presidents of their voting rights within the FOMC, including Jeffrey Lacker, Sandra Pianalto, and Janet Yellen, and will bring a set of four different presidents to the table, including Michael Moskow, William Poole, Thomas Hoenig, and Cathy Minehan.
While the departure of members with extreme tightening biases, such as Mr. Lacker, would initially infer a more moderate posture within the FOMC, the addition of three decidedly hawkish individuals and one moderate dove has the potential to create one of the most vigilant monetary policy committees in recent memory.

AUDUSD assumption is the potential head and shoulders top that began forming in early December. A decline below .7759 would complete the pattern and expose the 11/13 low at .7614. .7936, which is the top of the right shoulder, is key to the bearish structure. Daily studies are bearish now as well. MACD slope is negative, RSI and CCI are below midpoints and price is below the 20 day SMA.

China to Boost Imports on Yuan Concern, Lawmaker Says (Update2)

By Rob Delaney and Yoolim Lee

Jan. 25 (Bloomberg) -- China plans to increase imports rather than allow a freely floating yuan to narrow its trade surplus and curb growth in its ballooning foreign exchange reserves, a top lawmaker said.

``We are going to import more from overseas,'' mainly consumer goods and commodities, to address currency concerns, Cheng Siwei, vice chairman of the National People's Congress, said today at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. China isn't ready to free its currency ``at once,'' Cheng said.

CTA accounts are selling [EUR/USD], pressuring the pair into the 1.2950 zone where more central bank and semi-official bidding activity is expected. While Usd sentiment remains upbeat, and has been enhanced by firmer US Treasury yields following the Dec existing home sales data, the firmness of the CB bidding seen recently, and the prospect this extends into the 1.2850 area poses a huge hurdle to continued Usd gains. As ever, there remains the risk short term accounts will turn tail and pressure the pair higher again. Stops are expected above 1.3010 and then 1.3050.

Actually the rumored report by an advisory company from NYC, some news wrongly naming as a think tank, was just partially release. Funny It made a disaster on most bond desks, which were for the most part unprepared to such an event.

The part that was not disclosed was that long term rates in Us will surge, as the FED will start to lower the short term ones. For now we do see lotsa of activity on the longer side of the curve and lotsa nevousenss and huge billions of bonds flows from stops to cash, at least this late.

Very difficult to see those bonds sold today reinvested anywhere before Davos and FED. So the long term rates will still dance in crazyness of stops long lines fishings and funds returns axing.

Deutsche Bank's global head of FX strategy Bilal Hafeez sees euro weakness ahead in 07, with EUR/USD sliding to 1.20/1.25. Says euro is overvalued in terms of purchasing power. Argues for a "negative surprise" in euro-area economic growth in 07, because of higher taxes, strong exchange rate and impact of US slowdown. Says bank's economists, interestingly, are looking for an ECB rate cut at end-07. Sees central banks diversifying their reserves into yen.

Day Ahead

US
– existing home sales have risen in each of the past two months, but only modestly so and are only just off the lows seen in Q3. Inventories of unsold homes will also be monitored for an overall picture of market conditions. For existing home sales inventories have been steadier over the past few months, after rising sharply in the first half of 2006. The added uncertainty in interpreting the housing data at the present time is that any strength might be artificial and purely related to the unusually mild weather in the US over the past couple of months. Mortgage applications fell yesterday, continuing their recent run of volatility.

Japan – CPI data is due tonight with the BoJ having warned last week about the possibility of softer energy prices weighing on the number in coming months. It is not enough to say that this is a potential distortion on the downside, as core CPI ex-food and energy is at -0.2% y/y. If energy prices soften and bring the headline y/y rate towards the core rate, this will merely represent the removal of a previous upward distortion to CPI. Strength in core rates is required to alleviate current lingering concerns about deflation.

4:00 EUR Current Account -2.0B 0.7B 1.8B

The economic calendar is light today with existing home sales and jobless claims due for release. Sales of previously owned homes increased for 2 months in a row, suggesting a potential bottom in the housing market. Analysts are projecting a decrease but given the trend of mortgage applications in the month of December, sales could have held steady. Jobless claims are also projected to rise but that is primarily due to the surprise improvements that we have seen over the past week. Therefore these projections are mostly based upon adjustments rather than expected deterioration in the US economy. Should these reports come out strongly, the dollar could extend its move in what is already a dollar positive environment.

German consumer confidence has suffered another setback as shoppers in Europe's biggest economy have become more reluctant to make larger purchases, with the value-added tax hike now in place, a survey showed Thursday.

The GfK research group said its forward-looking consumer climate indicator for February sharply fell to 4.8 points from a revised 8.5 in January. The latter figure was revised down from an initially reported 8.7. Economists polled by Dow Jones Newswires had forecast a February reading of 8.4.

It depends on what you mean by understanding the market... Since this market is huge and market direction is determine by a series of events that I will rarely have info on prior to it effecting price action then I for one will never understand the market. :)

I do understand probabilities though, and in foreign exchange because of it's nature we prefer to trade within this trading paradigm. We know the risks and by knowing your risk you can formulate successful trading strategies that work long-term.

Everyone has there way of trading the market and if you are doing good then congratulations...

Good question :)

The way our models work is with probabilities, volatility, etc... and when a currency like cable is stretch beyond a certain point it has a high probability to snap and continue on it current direction. How far depends on market conditions but we see at least 100 pips and usually more. You can use Fibonacci to determine your best exit points or probabilities analysis etc...

This last week we saw cable hit that predetermine snapping point which was at 1.9843 and a confirming 1.9868. Normally we would wait to take first profit at 1.9943 (100+ pips) that has a very high probability to be touched. Yesterday price action only saw 1.9915 before retracing occurred. This sometimes will occur because of market forces outside if the GBP/$ realm such as carry trades in crosses or multi-year market highs.

In this situation we have both, not an ideal situation for system trading since the market will start to work outside of it's 98%+ prior history...

We still need to see 1.9943 touched or 1.9593 stops to be trigger before our bias to the upside changes....

Because of the above disturbances in price action you should chose careful your entries and stops. Or stay out until either 2.0 is broken or if the barrier remains then ride cable on it's way down.

Intraday target: Right now if price stays above 1.9680 look for a first target of 1.9713 - 1.9733 - 1.9765

If cable continues to sink then a target of 1.9580 looks to be a first target......

Was going to say earlier, which I see as still relevant:

EUR/USD is in need of correction with the price pressure towards the weekly pivot of 1.2953, which is also an interesting level on the 4hr 20day chart.

In the mean time I have taken profit on some trades at 1.2977 being a level of interest on the 4hr 20day chart.

Will see what the ‘state’ of the price is if it hits 1.2953.

FRANKFURT (AFX) - The GfK market research institute

Syd 07:43 GMT January 25, 2007 Reply   
its consumer climate index for Germany is forecast to drop to 4.8 points in February from a downwardly revised 8.5 points in January.

The institute said households are significantly less optimistic about spending money following the 3 percentage point increase in Germany's VAT sales tax earlier this month.

The institute's index measuring consumers' willingness to spend plummeted by 65 points from a month earlier to minus 5.1 points in January -- the strongest decline since monthly data was collected in 1980.

"Apparently there is currently still great uncertainty among consumers how the higher VAT tax is affecting prices," the institute said.

Income expectations improved some 11 points to minus 5.1 points, after a sharp decline in December.

Consumers' expectations about the economy improved a modest 1.8 points to 37.5 points -- the highest level since January 2001.

Last month, GfK had forecast the January consumer climate index at 8.7 points.

Ayatollah's snub pressures Iran president
Internal pressure on President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran to abandon his confrontational policies with the West has intensified after Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the country's supreme spiritual leader, snubbed a request for a meeting on the country's controversial nuclear programme.
President Ahmadinejad faces growing opposition
Iran's president meets regularly with Ayatollah Khamenei, who is regarded as the guardian of the Islamic Revolution, to brief him on international and domestic political issues. But when the president requested a meeting earlier this month, the ayatollah declined
It is a clear indication that the cracks are starting to appear in the highest echelons of the Iranian regime," said a senior Bush administration official with responsibility for monitoring Iran. "If the country's leading religious figure is not talking to the political leadership then obviously something is going seriously wrong."

I think we are in the same situation at the first week of january...We are going to get a little unwinding (on $/Y as i've posted to 119.70 first) , then back to the carry theme...$/Y might drop even further , to 117..But by then cable and euro will have detached and started flying again..This is how i see things atm.

Bank of Japan policy board member Miyako Suda said Thursday the BOJ shouldn't hesitate to consider raising interest rates if the bank is confident the economy and prices will continue to move in line with its forecasts.

"If the board takes longer to confirm its judgment of economic and price moves, that will delay the timing of a rate hike and cause big swings in the economy and instability of prices," Suda told business leaders in Saga, southern Japan.

Suda hinted that she was against keeping monetary policy unchanged at last week's board meeting, saying that she was "confident in the possibility that the economy and prices will move in line with our forecasts made in October."

Suda is regarded as a hawkish member of the nine-person board, and analysts have speculated she may have been one of the three members who voted against keeping interest rates unchanged at the meeting.

LOL. My thoughts are based on reality. The shifts in US Dollars into Euros is monumental. It is more like the anit-dollar.
The USD index says it all. The chart looks like Enron. One cannot trade the sell side of the buck and making a successful living doing it. But, with that said i think Gold will lead the dollar lower. If you look a the USD Index, and look at the counter rallies we have seen, I would say if thats all you got, then there are problems. Its not over yet, if it trades over 8550 it may catch some with their pants down and spark one last move before the markets look to test the .8000 level. That will be the level of all levels. It will be protected, and defended, but the enevitable will follow. Those are my thoughts. On a daily basis we will monitor Fx moves as most do to make an income, whether long or short.GL

[EUR/DLR] felt more power of [EUR/YEN] sales than [EUR/STG] demand, and fell from 1.3037 to 1.2948 y/day. Offers around 1.3030-50 are unchanged, and fresh sell orders are seen from 1.2990 this mng. Downside orders are bids around 1.2950-45 and stops below 1.2940. 1.2950-45 and 1.2975-80 would be watched as the immediate parameters. The latest picture indicates the initial upward attempts have failed, so resilience around the Senkou-span cloud bottom at 1.2924 would be watched. The 90D-MA at 1.2908 that is slowly moving up is working as a good support. The 21D-MA at 1.3020 is downtrending and is also capping the mkt as well especially on NY close base. Mixed picture.

Japan trade surplus with U.S. +12.6% on-year in December, boding well for BOJ rate hike in February, says Barclays Capital chief Japan economist Takuji Aida; "the data may indicate the U.S. economy is still supporting Japanese exporters and its overall economy."

[GBP/USD] collapsed from an earlier high of 1.9830 in Asia to an o/n low of 1.9645 as unwinding in Jpy carry trades continued. The sharp move lower was also precipitated by comments from BOE Gov King who said that the MPC's "central view remains that inflation is likely to fall back in the second half of the year, possibly quite sharply". Minutes from the Jan meeting showed a close vote of 5-4 for a hike which has led market players to scale back their belief that another rate hike is imminent. UK Q4 GDP grew 0.8% q/q its most significant quarterly growth in 2 1/2 years. On an annualized basis, GDP expanded 3% up from Q3's 2.9%. Buying orders at 1.9630 by a French name will provide support while selling orders at 1.9720 by a UK Clearer and Fund types will limit upside gains.

Europeans aren't only ones grumbling about the yen: Japan's neighbors too have been fretting that soft yen, in combination with China's efforts to keep yuan gains limited, is hurting their competitiveness. Most vocal have been Koreans with KRW reaching 9-year high vs USD in December, climbing to highest level vs JPY since 1997 in early January; Korea carmaker Hyundai Motor is expected to report fall in 4Q profit, due largely to stronger KRW. Yet Seoul isn't only one suffering - THB rose roughly 16% vs USD last year, IDR, SGD both gained about 7.7%. "There may be some intra-regional issues (in Asia) in 2007. The value of the won" vs JPY is likely to be "a big issue for Korean exporters," says Deutsche Bank's Jens Nystedt; with rates at 0.25%, "Japan has managed to get a free ride on rate differentials" while neighbors not so lucky. Weaker JPY is major factor in "why most of the rest of the region has been fairly stagnant," says HSBC's Clyde Wardle; "the Bank of Korea and other central banks are becoming somewhat concerned vis-a-vis the strength of the yen

Tokyo, Jan
25. Data for the week-ended January 20 show Japanese investors net sellers of foreign assets. Net liquidation was seen in all three asset categories with net
sales of Y35.5 bln seen in stocks, Y4.3 bln in bonds and Y89.3 bln in bills. The thinking here is that any fresh flows into foreign assets by investment trusts were likely offset by profit-takes by larger institutional investor on the other side of the ledger, foreign investors were again good buyers of Japanese stocks, purchasing a net Y648.3 bln. Foreign investors also bought a whopping net Y1.0329 trln in Japanese bonds and a net Y99.0 bln in Japanese bills.

Trending markets often retrace in a wave 4 during the Asian session. Also, according to my count, we are due for an upwards wave 4 correction of this downtrend, which can carry the price up to between 1.9725 and 1.9800. It I was short, I might consider taking my profits and waiting for a good re-entry opportunity.

Also, the GBP news today was pretty good:

ABHA FXS,

Whats your view on gbp/jpy please. ty

USD/CHF will likely correct down now to about 1.2440 and then proceed on upwards to about 1.2550 to 1.2600. Current price is 1.2490.

GBP/USD will correct upwards now to about 1.9725 from its current price of 1.9670 and then carry on downwards to about 1.9585.

EUR/USD will correct upwards now to about 1.2980 from its current price of 1.2955 and then carry on downwards to about 1.2780 to 1.2840. A failed fifth wave down would stop at about 1.2880.

USD/JPY will likely correct down now to about 120.60 to 120.70 and then proceed on upwards to about 122.00 to 123.25. Current price is 121.00.

This is a general outlook only, and very approximate, not a trade recommendation or trade experiment, based on Elliott Wave theory as I currently understand and apply it. I do this to practise my prediction methods, and to anticipate future favorable trade set-ups.

USD/JPY will likely descend from its current price at 120.50 to about 120.00 (or a bit lower) in a wave C of a downwards Wave 4 and then continue its long uptrend to a high of about 121.50 to 122.00."

In fact, USD/JPY fell only to 120.22 instead of 120.00 in the Wave C of a downwards Wave 4, because of its bullish trend, and it is seemingly well on its way to a high of 122.00 or higher, with an interim high of 121.80.

Sell USD/CHF at 1.2490

Stop is 1.2503

Target is 1.2440

Risk is 17 pips

Reward is 46 pips

Reward / Risk Ratio is 2.7

Confidence level: fair
Accuracy: good
Reward / Risk Ratio : fair

AUD/USD Soft, Australian CPI Weighs
AUD/USD to be soft, undermined by yesterday's weak Australian CPI data, unwinding of AUD/JPY longs, as well as bearish AUD/NZD cross. Morgan Stanley suggests holding short AUD/USD as Australian CPI data suggest enough spare capacity may be opening up to keep RBA on hold for some time, while U.S. growth likely to surprise on strong side, suggesting risk FOMC may yet have additional tightening to do. Dow Jones technical analysis indicates AUD/USD has negative bias on daily chart with both MACD, stochastic indicators bearish; AUD/USD spot rate below 5-, 15-day moving averages. Pair may test immediate support at 0.7789 (yesterday's low), breach of which would target 0.7758 (Jan. 10 low).
