Well for the ranger the 3 patterns in pattern 3 where completed. I skipped the first pattern (14704) because the range was only 40 at the time. I have the feeling that e/u can go a bit lower than 145 handle, feelindicator measures that. we shall see what happens next week, range will var from day to day, and differences might be bigger each day. Just watch, be alert on timeframes and x-mas will be good.

US DATA: This week, the NY Post noted that home ownership peaked at 69.2% in 2004 and was 68.2% at end of Q3 as per the Census Bureau data.
The NYP says however that this data "masks a much larger plunge in the amount of equity homeowners hold." "This figure, equal to the percentage of a home's market value minus mortgage related debt, fell to an average of 51.7% at the end of Q1, down from 62% at the end of 1990, the Federal
reserve reported, even as the average home value surged 139% during that period." The NYP points to economists who maintain that home-equity holdings will drop below 50% by end of next year - which would be first time ever that homeowners owe more than they own - since Fed started keeping records in 1945. Their concern would appear well founded in light of Thursday's Q3 Flow of Funds report from the Fed, showing that homeowner's equity as a percent of real estate value fell to 50.4% in Q3
from 51.1% in Q2 - the lowest ratio on record.

TIME TO LAUGH -

At a country-club party a young FX TRADER was introduced
to an attractive girl. Immediately he began paying her court
and flattering her outrageously. The girl liked the young
man, but she was taken a bit aback by his fast and ardent
pitch. She was amazed when after 30 minutes he seriously
proposed marriage. "Look," she said. "We only met a half
hour ago. How can you be so sure? We know nothing about each
other." "You're wrong," the young FX TRADER declared. "For
the past 5 years I've been working in the FX firm
where your father has his account."

yu yu// What i do is take out 2/3 to 1/2 of a position on a breach of a major level (say 227.05/10) then look to reshort with the next level (227.60-90) that way im still in if the move fails and i lower my loss if we keep going. But it works best if you plan three or four moves in advance. g/j will get nailed but it may take time to catch up to the equities and seeing as its Friday it may do wierd things into the close.

Well the bearish side of mine is very aware of the 2008 year risks of sharp selloffs. Time will tell as usual.

Just wondering where they will handle so to absorb an ever most needed long term counter reaction.

So hence better spare room for cuts into next year and be happy with what they did to solve the current years problems.

The possibility that what the treasury giveth the Fed taketh away. Ie the Paulson plan in exchange for no rate cuts. If they beleieve that they have struck at the core of the problem then they will not need to cut and bail out the banks. win-win....except for the financials of course (and equities). Then its a waiting game into 1st quarter next year...Did it work? We shall see but I doubt it will address the fundamental overstretch of the US consumer.

It is midday in Madrid, and this market feels like the following -
It looks like a typical NFP friday, no major moves so far.

mm//Just came back from my 5 year old nativity play and back to posting with the more lurid yet equally mature ones here (fortunately there are those of our age group too). Ready for some swings today but its mostly positioning for next week rather then any expectations of profit lock-in on day trades. Got hit with a short gbpusd at 2.0329 the first of a few i mentioned yesterday. 2.03610 and 2.0420 also waiting with double possies. Also keeping an eye out in gbpjpy, have a gut that that will get trully hammered early next week if not starting today. Just got to pick the right levels.
is//thanks but really i am no guru. you remember cad this week? lol.

EUR/USD: Possible head-and-shoulders formation
(Barcelona) – The Euro is looking rather top heavy, according to Nicole Elliott, senior technical analyst at Mizuho Corporate Bank, as she advances the possibility of H&S formation: “Looking rather top-heavy with a small potential head-and-shoulders top. This at year-end will probably tempt some to cut and run.” In regards to strategy, Elliott advices: “Possibly attempt tiny longs at 1.4620, adding to 1.4525; stop well below 1.4500. Target 1.4750.”

EUR may have got a lift from the ECB's hawkish tone on Thursday. But, UBS forecasts the single currency as still headed back down to $1.40 in the next three months. "We still think current EUR/USD levels do not justify the currency's fundamentals and the general potential performance of US assets," the bank says.

The CAD looks set to come back down to earth next year, after flying high in 2007. The downturn in metals prices and a reversal in positive M&A flows are already taking their toll. Now the Bank of Canada's decision to cut rates this week suggests it will be in the vanguard of central banks responding to the threat of more spillover from the US subprime crisis

A Chinese finance ministry official said Friday a stable dollar would help developing economies.

The official, who declined to be named, added excessive currency volatility wouldn't be good for the global economy.

Speaking at a press briefing about the high-level Sino-U.S. talks in Beijing next week, the official also said China should study the potential impact of problems in the U.S. subprime-mortgage sector, as well as consider how to boost risk prevention in the financial sector.

The USD/JPY may yet get a lift if US payrolls come in stronger than expected, especially after that downgrade to Japan's 3Q GDP. But, says Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi, any gains will be "fleeting" given uncertain financial market conditions and contracting yield differentials.

"FINTAG COMMENT
Mince pie anyone?

Apparently the Bank of England's drop in rates has signalled a new journey towards cheap credit again and Bush is not bailing out but helping the poor people to continue living in houses that are rapidly falling in value when renting would be a better option. Christmas has come early it seems.

The scrooge like ECB is sticking to its plan of controlling inflation and has no plans to ease the credit pain. For let us face it, a drop in rates doesn't mean more liquidity in these current markets because collateral is king and banks are struggling to ascertain what good and bad collateral is in a world of Basel 2 and Level 3 accounting. Real Estate, CDOs, Commercial Paper, Bonds and Banking Stocks appear not to be good collateral and with falling gold and other commodities, it is unclear what is. The good news is that maybe the USD will survive and enjoy its status once more as the currency we all want and need.

Hedge fund news includes Quants getting another beating and tax plans are unveiled. M-LEC is almost dead and foreigners leave the UK in droves.

Quote of the day:
"Equities seem to be detached from what's going on in the rest of the world at the moment. The economic outlook is very difficult - the credit markets are clearly experiencing huge difficulties, and it's difficult to believe that equities can remain isolated. The forecast earnings we're seeing from the analytical community are still probably too optimistic. They haven't factored in the impact of a slowdown in economic activity and tighter credit markets."

Paul Myners (in today's FT)

The chart below looks like the cardiogram of a patient who is suffering a heart attack.First, Britain's housing market is more vulnerable than America's. House prices and mortgage debt have both risen faster and their absolute levels are much higher, relative to personal incomes, in Britain than in the US.

Britain is structurally more vulnerable than America to a severe economic slowdown. This is because Britain's growth in the past decade has been driven by three forces — finance, housing and public sector spending — all of which are now going into reverse. To make matters worse, the City is about to be hit by the biggest tax changes in a generation, which are bound to drive at least some high-value financial activities offshore.

Market fears that Bank has 'lost control'
Experts warned that it was a sign that the credit crisis could escalate over the Christmas period, even though the Bank has now embarked on a major series of interest rate cuts for the first time in almost eight years.

It coincided with a chilling warning from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development that the UK economy is heading for a major slowdown next year - and possibly a "significant slump" in house prices

my personal view is that the eur govenors are trying to bring in the british into eurozone, withe the falling pound and falling economy that might happen with the help of the media noise, once the euro reaches parity with gbp that will be alot easier to happen and thus the pound will demise or be euro pegged. and when this will happen that will strengthen the eurozone economy even more.

The only problem for the eurozone guys who want one big europe is that the frame zone is tight - with elections coming up and a chance of a tory goverment and maybe a chance of recovery in the end of 2008, they have to eccelerate the downfall of the pound and its econmy, pick up their own interest rates, and meet english rates lets say at 5 - by then the pound will be begging to come in, and there goes british independance.

Only after that, will we start to see a euro weekness, because by then they will be achong all over.

I know it sounds superstitous, but thats my theory anyway.

Bay the ECB will stick it out , their problem is they are for many not now just Germany , so I think they will just talk the talk - the Euro strength has helped them up to now , but like all good things can make you ill eventually, the USD weakness has also stoked oil,gold etc,, tell you one thing dont know what the reason for the turn around will be but when it does happen oil will plummet , as OPEC have rightly said the speculators are in , same with gold

SYD,

With inflation at 3% you are right ECB may not follow BOE which will have at least 2 more rate cuts as the situation there very much similar to the US.

Philadelphia Caba 01:58 with all the bad news out this week think it as a 50/50 bet , not sure if the ECB will reduce rates they have a bad habbit of worring about inflation firm with their view , the Bundesbank if you recall had a hand in bringing the GBP to its knees with their lose talk

GBP downside risks growing after BOE's decision to cut rates yesterday for 1st time since August 2005, amid general pessimism over state of U.K. economy, say Barclays Capital FX strategists. "We think that the downside risks have increased and that, especially in today's climate of increased aversion to risk, this is likely to lead to reduced demand for GBP for any given price," it says. Now forecasts EUR/GBP at 0.73, 0.74, 0.75, 0.75 in 1, 3, 6, 12 months' time; GBP/USD at 1.99, 1.99, 1.93, 1.93 over same periods. Says next rate cut likely in February 2008, ahead of market's current expectation for March cut; says as well as interest rate differentials, U.K. sentiment is weaker with media talk of 'perfect storm' of bad news for economy; "the gloom surrounding the U.K. is likely to lead to worldwide investors reducing their demand for U.K. assets, and thus for GBP." GBP/USD last at 2.0263, EUR/GBP at 0.72240.

isr jweb 01:18 GMT not sure just yet , see it been chipped away at by the bad data and cronic deficit problem is its had such a good run and from the outside looks like the economy here is very rosy mostly on the back of China , thats where the turn will start from , anyway thats my view

isr jweb,

Aud/usd is not going to die. If NFP is positive then the currency most affected will be gbp and aud against the USD, but with the rate cut coming for usd and RBA no change, and the economic situation in Australia far better than in US and UK, aud should go up in the 1st quarter.

isr jweb 01:18 GMT December 7, 2007 Reply   
syd so you agree with the guy that said aud to die?

Syd .. 01:07 GMT December 7, 2007 Reply

China's securities regulator said the potential risks in the local capital market can't be ignored and urged research on the risks that could arise from changes in the external environment.

The remarks by China Securities Regulatory Commission Chairman Shang Fulin come amid concerns about the risk of an asset bubble forming in China and about the effect of the problems in the U.S. subprime-mortgage sector on economies and financial sectors around the world.

In a statement posted on its Web site Thursday, the China Securities Regulatory Commission said it will treat boosting direct financing as key task and steadily push forward the development of the futures market.

Yes. Sub 2.0000 GBP/USD is coming as we have been mentioning albeit and with even more reason and cause due to much public friction to that fact.

Happy Day!
