Syd,

thank you for all your posts. Appreciate all them.

Maybe for someone just when he will see the euro at 1.80 and "...the parabollic...." , etc, etc, etc, those will be good news.

Thank you again Syd.

Geneva DS - Ancient phrase: "...and loss itself is the only discovery of gain." This is not sad. It is the essential insight that leads to the release of cultured sentiments from perception and to the appercetion of one's self indepedent of objectification.

If I may: There are 2 fundamental anxieties we can do nothing about. One(existential angst), arrogating to oneself the resources that belong to 6blln people, ie, "making a living". Two(ontological angst),that we cannot sustain this consciousness that so preoccupies us daily - until we fall, gratefully, asleep. Regardless of the contents of tomorrow you have to give it(you!) up to fall asleep.
Even to have spontaneous movements, like hitting a baseball at 90mph, you are not there. Natural ease occurs when there is apperception of one's inherent wholeness. Ecstasy is not the "up" but,literally, to "ec stare": to "stand outside" of oneself ot view oneself. It is silent and sudden. Best wishes.

Syd 22:23 / re Bill's "the system will require more."

It is absolutely amazing to me that this pimco communist thinks that one can devalue one' s way out of a gigantic pile of bad, stinki rotten debt. I ve said before on numerous occasions, many, many - both companies and individuals - will have to die and never come back again. Financial profits based of paperpushing other peoples' money by comissioned sheisters will never beat real economic profits based on honest and solid value added sales in responce to real market demand.

NZ's October retail sales decline indicate September's strong result was anomaly, "likely a blip" as consumer spending has been weakening broadly in recent months, says Bank of NZ markets economist Mark Walton; expects weakening trend to persist, adds RBNZ's 4 rate hikes this year have eaten into discretionary spending; "We are probably looking at a negative (sales volume) number for 4Q...there doesn't seem to be anything out there that's going to see the weakening trend turnaround."

PIMCO Chief Investment Officer Bill Gross said Wednesday that he welcomed the the Federal Reserve's plan, in conjunction with other central banks, to inject liquidity into the debt markets.

However, in a live interview on Bloomberg television, he said the $40 billion injection to banks via term-fund auctions would not be enough.

"I think it is welcomed," he said, but added the $40 billion amount was "questionable" and "the system will require more."

"There are two $20 billion auctions over the next few weeks. It is certainly not enough. It is enough to promote Countrywide's liquidity but not much else," Gross said, in an apparent reference to embattled mortgage lender Countrywide Financial Corp. (CFC).

But Gross said he was confident that the central banks would continue to add more funds to the system until the key London interbank offer rate, or Libor, comes down. Libor is the rate at which banks lend to each other and is the basis for the pricing of many types of debt.

"We'll have to see how these repo operations, these auctions, succeed in terms of bringing down the Libor-to-Treasury spread. If they don't succeed, I expect the Fed to increase the size until they do."

NZ's October retail sales posts unexpected across-board fall, with sharply weak core sales weighing; Statistics NZ says seasonally-adjusted sales down 0.7% on month vs September's +1%, expected flat; core sales down 1.1% vs September +0.4%. Statistics bureau says trend of monthly sales increases have slowed since May; core sales such as appliances retailing down 4.7%, department store down 1.1%, hardware down 4.8%. Outcome further confirms RBNZ's aggressive rate hikes this year hurting consumer spending, may signal less rosy picture for retailers this Christmas, New Year season. Result should please RBNZ as bank looks for concerted cooling in domestic demand to rein in elevated core CPI.

Taxes - you don't pay taxes on losses, at least not yet.LOL

I think the real issue is trust...no one will lend/or buy debt because so many have been royally screwed. The fear, the avoid-at-all-costs is "an indictable offense" at a WallSt Bank that could spill over into the political scene as court cases are held during the height of presidential elections. You've got NY Attny Gen Cuomo issuing subpeonas to all the WStreet Banks. And by the way, the sitting NY Gov is Elliott Spitzer who as a prosecutor went after Wall Street in a big way, so there's no love there. IMHO

Next week is Quad expiration, then the week after - who will be trading rather than taking off-thinness factor, so the market can get pushed up, as witnessed today, by rumors, which this group would tout as "transparency", but I call manipulation.

I think the thing to watch will be the market's reaction to the Invest. Banks reports in the next 2 weeks. Lehman reports tomorrow, then Morgan Stanley, Goldman, Bear; Mon, Tues, Thurs.

nh 18:35 / I have no illusions about an imminent dissolution of the FED (or any other major CB), its fiat and return to Honest Money. Nor about any 180° turns in the spendthrift Congress for that matter. Good chance we get a re-run of 1930-1932 in next couple of years. And with an impressionable and raving Ben at "technology" (... that allows it to produce as many U.S. dollars as it wishes at essentially no cost") controls, I am young enough to have too vivid memories of the 18% - 14% 1981-1984 era. Ben needs to come clean with an extra clear communication explaining "at no cost" to whom.

The fact that the global conditions are worse is becoming clearer in perceptions.

Central Bank attempts could be of modest use; the damage is done (by irresponsible politicians in governance)

Do you understand the English in the math of govt officially and consistently claiming that inflation is in check at barely 2% ? It seems to me it is the Chinese and Arabs who have a much better understanding of Fed's English as they watch their dollars' purchasing power shrinking a lot faster than 2% every year.

London NYAM 15:26 GMT - Now USDYEN is in 50% from 117.80 to 107 retracement at 112.50, 61.8% at 113.80. It is not yet over for YEN strengthening process. But I dont know how aggressive is the carry traders. The first Fed Loan auction is Dec17 next monday. The repro is as long as 6 months. The effect is still in questions as Citi boys last time was funded by paying for 11% for the warrant sale. It once had a sunshine day and it seemed all credit crunch matters were solved. If the credit crunch is really under control, all lines of USD should be stronger and not just versus YEN. I think the forex situation now is running out of control. Every news (fundamental or not), it is interpreted as Red/Green light for carry tradings. So I would suggest playing position and take profit and run away for a better Xmas. GLGT. me too.

Stubbs//It is a very suspicious looking spike. I want to see if it can stay below 205.10. Picked at it from 20522 and took it off again. Also took a small short USDJPY and GBPJPY. Dont want to jump in too heavy yet until i see a decent impulse again. Also like that we couldnt breach 2.0595 so it still leaves room for the possibility of a down swing. Im studying the equities chart to get a read on if this is indeed a nasty sucker move in illiquid markets.

It's possible - go to Wikipedia and look up hyperinflation. But with respect to the USD, it's just a tiny probability (it takes a "perfect storm" of mismanagement to make it happen). The USD has been in a steady decline for the last half decade or so against many ccy's but it's been able to manage that readjustment w/o a tectonic shift in social structure, so a total crash is highly unlikely (famous last words, I know...)

From AP: But according to media reports, the Fed is actively considering all the tools at its disposal to pump more liquidity into the U.S. banking system. The Financial Times reported that the central bank could announce a move as soon as Wednesday.

and from the FT:
Hopes for Fed liquidity action stem stock losses
By Neil Dennis

Published: December 12 2007 11:05 - Last updated: December 12 2007 11:05

US equities were set for a rebound on Wednesday, helping limit losses on European stock markets, as the Federal Reserve prepared to make changes to the way it offers liquidity support to financial institutions.

Wall Street stocks fell sharply on Tuesday after the Fed disappointed markets with an interest rate cut of only a 25 basis points and failed to give a clear signal over the future direction of interest rates.

The equity recovery began in Asia, however, with most markets ending off their session lows. European stocks fell, but also recovered from their worst levels as US index futures traded sharply higher.

Speculation rose that the US central bank was preparing to unveil a new facility that would auction loans to banks, providing liquidity directly to a large number of financial institutions against a wide range of collaterol.

The changes, which could be announced as early as Wednesday, reflect a realisation among top Fed officials that their existing tools – open market operations and direct discount window loans – are having little effect on painfully high rates in the market for term interbank loans.

The Dow Jones Indstrial Average fell 2.1 per cent and the S&P 500 shed 2.5 per cent in reaction to Tuesday’s 25bp rate cut but the S&P futures contract was 11 points higher in early trade on Wednesday, indicating strong opening gains.

”There is an element of bargain-hunting on the cards for the open, but hopes that the Fed will shortly announce a new liquidity support programme are also tempting buyers back in,” said Martin Slaney at censored Global Markets.

The dollar made a knee-jerk move higher to the rate move, but also reversed its direction. By late morning in London, the US currency was on a weaker footing, falling sharply against the higher yielders as hopes of more stable financial market conditions prompted carry trade action.

The New Zealand dollar was up 1.5 per cent against its US counterpart and up 1.4 per cent against the low-yielding yen.

Government bond prices fell, reversing Tuesday strong bounce. This pushed yields sharply higher, with the 10-year yield rising 7 basis points to 4.04 per cent and the two-year yield up 13.5bp to 3.04 per cent.

I am improving my FF style. I do not comment on the writers story but on the contents.
So i will not bother to comment the Geneva DS thing, oops did it, last time.

The market is showing a 70 ish range today. Pattern of yesterday was, first looking for the high, than go down for 80 pips, than rebound back above the 147 thingy.
So far this pattern repeats almost the same, but now we have to see where the low and the last move up's high is.

This market reeks of book talking and churlish ignoramuses pouting like children because Sant - Father Christmas - Sinter Klaus did not bring them the Red Ryder BB gun or shiny Schwinn Roadmaster bicycle they demanded.

The Fed must be procactive while the ECB sits on its hands spouting the same tired lines about concern and brutality but continuing to act as the dug dealer to banks providing oceans of liquidity to feed the habits of the same speculators and evil-doers they so roundly denounce.

Well after sitting here trying to get a clearer read, i am now starting to incline back to a position that this is going to be a nasty sucker punch.

cant believe this article
Macquarie Bank economist Rory Robertson says various media reports suggesting that U.S. Fed considering further moves to ease credit crunch as early as this week, may stem from negative market reaction to 25 bps cuts in funds rate and discount rate. "Perhaps the Fed is responding to the poor market reaction to today's policy moves. Or perhaps some of the regional Feds are not keen on discount-rate cuts but are being dragged there kicking and screaming by the Head-Office heavies in Washington (this guess is based merely on some Fed Presidents' well-advertised lack of enthusiasm for aggressive policy easing)." WSJ report suggests Fed may be considering a further pre-Christmas cut to discount rate, maybe even this week. Meanwhile, Financial Times report says Fed may unveil a new liquidity facility through which it will auction loans to financial institutions, with announcement perhaps coming as early as today.

The rebound seen in carry trades Wednesday has been on the back of the talk that the Fed will introduce new liquidity arrangements later Wednesday. The big risk is that this doesn't materialize, says a UK bank trader. In which case he sees EUR/JPY heading straight toward 160.00 and USD/JPY below 110.00

everybody are in a golden period right now, ten years from now every trader would dream of this as the magnificent bush-era...it is only thanks to his policies that in a few short years billions have been made and millions of billonaires have been born. having excess cash and eroding value of dollars lead to rapid valuation of every single asset from stock markets around the world to commodities, oil, people didnt even want to touch brazillian stocks or oil....i think that in 10 years this will be historical and everyone would wish that bush should have been president forever.

Helping out the bottom of the market to stay in wont help the middle bracket when their resets go in and they end up house poor. rental values will be hurt and the overhang of houses will remain a problem for prices.

more helps would be then cousing even worse scenario for the home related biz as for the federal home loan dept, the releted subrimes outstanding etc.. this time the crisis is not fianancial, but a credit crisis - which economically is worse...so a counter move is wellcome from FED officials, even if they cant say It they know It s coming

they need a counter sharp move at some point...

the august crisis is still alive and feeded as a chronic malaise, but apparently with no big results offered as red numbers growing all around...as UBS to close their year in red, so many others

also in US there s a huge number of courts already active for many falsification from banks on the loan practicies the SF Chronicle reported coupla days ago

but the buck might get some relief from and equity normalisation of values, which is clearly lower given the troubled balance sheets we see developing and hitting severeley the P/E ratio...at least so It will make sense to buy again at more normal prices - at here is just the dummy money getting in

Gm forum ! There are many who feel why hold jpy wuld agree with it on face value as it means a weak Japanese economy and so forth ....but before drawing a conclusion one needs to look into the genesis of this yen weakening ....it all started with BOJ intervening very strongly and FED raising rates ....there is a tendency to convert a loss into an opportunity and so did the carry trade come into play ....soon it became more than an opportunity ....it was a nice way to make quick bucks.... not that it has not been in the past...but then it opened a plethora of unending yen liabilities for the future....now the situation is Fed has been cutting maybe thru or some more to come but more notably Japan can raise rates in the future ....the yen liabilities which were used to create assets across asset classes are now demanding time to expiration related funding on the liability side of the books....where can then the usdjpy head to in the directional call of things.....just an early morning Indian recipe gud luck gl gt

Yen indeed gave a surprise move, but once it climbs above 111.100 one may assume the yen bearish mood.

USD/JPY : Keep an eye on 109.93.


Hong Kong Qindex 01:45 GMT December 9, 2007
Subject:
USD/JPY : Trading Reference : ... 100.59 - 102.31* - 104.04 - 104.90 // 105.76* - 106.62 - 107.48 - 108.34 - 109.20* - 110.06 - [110.93] - 111.79 - 112.65* - 113.51 - 114.37 - 115.23 - 116.09* - 116.95 - 117.82 - 119.54* - 121.26 ...

Remarks (USD/JPY) : The pivot center is located at 109.41 - 110.93. Projected resistant points are located at 112.65 and 114.37. Projected supporting points are expected at 104.45 and 105.76. My bias is on the downside when the market is not able to close above 111.99 in New York session. The weekly cycle pivot center is positioning at 110.49 - 110.76. Upside targeting points are 112.70 and 113.04. Downside targeting points are 108.28 and 108.48.

Their secret arsenal is the printing press, right? Along with the ECB, BOC, BOE, BOJ. Bad day if you are a tree then.

cb// probably because she is a hottie-hot-hot with brains to boot. But yes, like the undervlued surge (ultimatey a joke but presently a positive work in progress), market fears are now reaching sillyness (s/t of course). so buy the dollar across the board (and that means usdjpy too). Carry should take a back seat to attention for the dollar. good night. i luv you valerie.

CNBC commentator reports that a fed source who asked not to be named said that the Fed still has under active consideration a set of tools to address the liquidity issue. The source would not say what those tools are, but the CNBC reporter suggested that these actions would occur in the very near term rather than later... CNBC reporter says other potential ideas based on historical discussions with the Fed include lowering the spread between the discount window and the funds rate or long term repo action that would put cash into market for a longer period of time. CNBC commentator also says that it is clear, based on the conversion, that other potential ideas are under discussion. CNBC commentator said the source did not say this but it's reasonable to assume.
