Labour market overview – seasonally adjusted
The December 2006 quarter Household Labour Force Survey (HLFS) shows a further slight decline in employment after a long period of continued growth from the December 2002 to June 2006 quarters. Over the quarter, employment fell by 2,000 (0.1 percent). In annual terms employment increased by 1.4 percent. The number of people unemployed declined by 1,000 over the December 2006 quarter to 82,000. This decrease in unemployment, plus a slight reduction in the size of the labour force, led to a decrease in the unemployment rate of 0.1 of a percentage point, to 3.7 percent for the December 2006 quarter.

The labour force participation rate fell by 0.3 of a percentage point over the December 2006 quarter to 67.9 percent. This was the result of a contraction in the labour force of 3,000 people over the quarter (0.1 percent), coupled with growth (0.4 percent) in the unadjusted working-age population. The number of people not in the labour force grew by 13,000 (1.3 percent).

In summary, the December 2006 quarter HLFS results indicate a labour market that is still relatively tight, with continuing high employment levels. The unemployment rate has been consistently low, under 4 percent, since the September 2004 quarter.

Why Europe has a yen for a stronger Japanese currency
Mention Essen to a football fan, and he will probably recognise it as the birthplace of Arsenal and Germany goalkeeper Jens Lehmann. Located on the banks of the river Ruhr, it was formerly one of Germany's most important coal and steel centres, and is still home to 13 of the country's largest 100 corporations. But on Friday, it will add another string to its bow as it plays host to the world's most powerful finance ministers and central bankers when they gather for their latest G7 meeting.

Good afternoon all. Keep your eye on 120.83, a break above that will target 121.10 in Asia. A move above 121.40 will see new highs for USD/JPY in front of the G-7. I think if we start to see USD/JPY and EUR/JPY begin to rally aggressively in Asia, one has to be concerned about BOJ selling EUR/JPY as a bone to the Europeans. They may not hike rates. They certainly won't allow YEN to be dominated at the G-7, but they may throw a bone to the Europeans in the way of some EUR/JPY selling pre G-7. This is politics, not economics. Look for USD/JPY to get to Fridays closing level of 121.10 - 15... then short it for an aggressive USD move lower.

FXMarketSpace Test Phase To Start Thursday
CHICAGO (Dow Jones)--The Chicago Mercantile Exchange is about to begin the testing phase for a market targeting the estimated $2 trillion-a-day foreign exchange market.
CME's Chief Executive Craig Donohue revealed at a Credit Suisse investor conference on Wednesday that the "soft launch" of FXMarketSpace will begin Thursday. Actual live trading will commence in late March, Donohue said.
Last May, CME, a unit of Chicago Mercantile Exchange Holdings Inc. (CME), announced that it had entered a joint venture with data provider Reuters Group PLC (RTRSY) to create the world's first centrally cleared foreign exchange market place.
Each company agreed to invest $45 million by the end of this year to develop the initiative to tap into lucrative over-the-counter currency trades, which account for more than 90% of all foreign currency transactions.
CME has signed up 69 early adopter participants, including banks, prime brokerages, hedge funds and proprietary trading firms.
"We've got all the right people," said Donohue.
It's not clear how many of the early adopters are taking part in the testing phase.
CME has listed foreign exchange futures since the early 1970s. While they account for less than 10% of exchange-wide volume, forex is considered one of its fastest growing products.

[CABLE] has remained trapped in narrow range around the 1.9700 handle during the day, buffetted by conflicting cross flows and a general lack of enthusiasm ahead of Thurs" MPC announcement. No change from 5.25% is expected as the bank digests the impact of Jan's hike, though the market is looking for another move in Mar, which should provide an overall downside prop to sentiment. Gbp/Jpy bidding has played a prominent role in the Jpy's softer profile, though Eur/Gbp is again back above 0.66 after running into good bid interest around 0.6570. The upside may prove attractive amid a firmer Eur profile, though continuing rate hike expectations should see offer interest again in place around the 0.6630 and 0.6650 marks. The 1.9750 level marking the 61.8% retracement of drop off the year's highs remains the key upside hurdle in the pair, offer interest again expected to be firm around here. A US investment bank bid today's lows, with more bids expected around 1.9660-70.

Looks like P. Steinbruck will have a major problem at this weekend G7 since nobody seems to be sharing his view on the eur and on the eurjpy . On the contrary USA seems to want a weaker yen. Also while Paulson says yen is determined by free market, currency analysts at GS agree that yen rate is steered by japanese government and less by free market than other currencies .

Trivia for the day /// The kiwi bird is unusual in at least two respects. First, it is the only bird in the world that has its nostrils at the end of its beak. Second, the female kiwi has the largest egg, in proportion to its body size, of any bird in the world (except possibly for the hummingbird). Kiwis are about the same size as chickens, but their eggs are almost as big as those of ostriches.

In the February monthly sentiment survey of professional forex dealers by global-view.com, the leading forex discussion website, sentiment for the USD against the EUR has improved. The three-month ahead mean forecast for EUR/USD was 1.2982 from 1.3033 a month earlier. The EURUSD spot price at the mid-point (February 6 close) of when the survey was being conducted was 1.2928.

The GVI-Cumino Euro bull index (Range 0-100; 0 = most bearish, 100 = most bullish, 50 = neutral) was about steady in the EUR/USD at 56 from 54 previously. The GVI-Cumino index uses a theoretical neutral option strategy to measure the intensity and direction of individual trader sentiment from price levels at the time when forecasts were made.

The USD/JPY mean dollar forecast improved to 118.86 from 115.47 one month ago. The USD/JPY spot rate at the mid-point of when the survey was being conducted was 120.33. The GVI-Cumino dollar bull index turned less USD bearish. It was 39 after 27.

Traders expect the price of crude oil (WTI) to close at $61.44 in three-months time from the current spot vs. the previous $59.81 estimate.

In a special question, participants were asked they expected the G7 this weekend to take concrete action to bolster the JPY. 80% said no, while 20% said yes.

The Dow Jones Newswires survey of 25 economists calls for an annualized rate of productivity growth of 2.1% and for

GBP/JPY : The market is resting around 237.90 and waiting for further instruction. There is a monthly cycle resistant point at [238.42]. If the market refuses to tackle [238.12] and trades below 237.58, I would also assume that we have seen the daily high already.

Had problems logging on to the website and made my market assessment before the opening of the UK market.

Trading range on the 1hr 30day / 1day 6mo / 4hr 20day charts is around 1.3045 to 1.2904.

The 61.8% fib on the 1wk 3yr is around 1.2908, and shows a support level on this chart. This chart still shows some up movement.

The price on the 1day 6mo still shows some up movement with the SMA(89) having crossed the SMA(100).

On the 4hr 20 day chart the price is above the SMA(100), with RSI(5) and (14) coming down from over bought.

RSI(5) and (14) on 1hr 5day chart is coming down from over bought.

The price has hit a resistance level around 12989 the 38.2% fib on the 4hr 20 day chart.

With conflicting info from various time charts I see a ranging market, so will look at taking pips within the range, unless the market says otherwise - within my understanding.

Thank you for signing up to receive our commentary, provided by censored Markets Analyst, Ashraf Laidi. This a SPECIAL FX CHART ANALYSIS for Tuesday, February, 6th.

Rising Oil & G7 Meeting: Yen Strength or Dollar Weakness?

The dollar’s technical outlook has taken a turn to the worse on a combination of aggressive pre-G7 currency talk favoring yen stability and an 18% increase in oil prices over the past 3 weeks.

Oil Rebound as Fast as Past Decline

An 18% rise over a 3-week period is as significant as a 20% decrease over a 4-week period (oil’s decline from mid December to mid January), but oil’s rebound has not yet made it to the front pages as it is “only” at 4 week highs, which is not as “spectacular” as 18-month lows –seen in mid January. But the magnitude of the current rebound is comparable to the prior declines. The significance of the recent oil increase is such that US consumers may start to struggle in spending their way to an economic soft landing and keeping intact the Goldilocks scenario (neither too hot nor too cold). A prolonged slowdown in US housing would raise risks of a double whammy for the US economy, especially at a time, when US manufacturing deepens in a recession.

G7 May Trigger Further Yen Moves, but Short-lived

One week ago, it was unthinkable that the official communiqué on foreign exchange markets would address the yen’s excessive weakness. But the fact that currency had hit a 21-year low in trade weighted terms, all time lows against the euro and 8 1/ 2 year lows against the British pound, qualifies the yen’s weakness to be tabled in the discussions to the extent of triggering notable market moves. Thus, even if the official statement on FX sticks to its usual generic format, along with addressing China’s foreign exchange regime (as was done in the last two G7 meetings), there exists the potential for further yen moves (vs Aussie, Euro, Sterling and US dollar) as European officials are capable to raise the volume in their demands for “more FX stability” as has already been demonstrated by German ministers.

Yet, we see the yen’s fortunes improving mainly against the Aussie (target 92 by end of week from current 93.28), the euro (154.20 from current 155.95) and British pound (232 from current 236.70 in the event that the Bank of England does not surprise with another rate hike this week). Downside in USDJPY is seen limited to 119.20-25, before consolidating into a lower range inside the 119.00-120.00 range.

Break of 10-year yields/prices, foretells further dollar declines

We warned last week that the price of the 10-year Treasury note (March 2007 contract) was testing higher towards the 107 figure (equivalent of yield testing lower towards 4.81%). We stated that we “expect a breach of the 2-month trend line resistance at 107.17, equivalent to a yield of 4.75” adding that we added that: “Transitioning this analysis into tomorrow’s non-farm payrolls, the charts suggest a potentially disappointing report may be in store, which is a negative for the US dollar.” Indeed, payrolls were disappointing and the dollar did decline, before ending higher on talk that the ECB will pause for longer than expected.

Finally today, the 10-year T-note broke the 2-month trend line (price broke resistance to 107.18 high, and yield broke support to 4.76%), opening the way for further headway towards the 107.30s until 107.50 resistance, corresponding to a yield of 4.71% from the current 4.77%. This translates into further dollar downside, especially as the oil factor manifested itself into the US dollar index ‘ failure to break above its 200-day moving average for the 4th time in less than one week.

SINGAPORE GFX Received from CBA in the last hour FYI:

Tomorrow is an important day for the AUD/NZD exchange rate. January employment data is due in Australia and Q4 employment data is due in New Zealand. While the likelihood is that the AUD/NZD exchange rate will close above 1.1400 (ie. higher) on the day, in one-week's time the AUD/NZD exchange rate is likely to be lower than 1.1400, and by the end of March at 1.0972.

Foreign exchange market sentiment is being heavily influenced by this weekend's G7 meeting in Germany. Participants continue to remain cautious about holding short JPY positions ahead of the meeting. There has been notable selling of long NZD/JPY positions and to a lessor extent, AUD/JPY positions. The NZD/USD has been the worst performing major currency over the last 5 days. But the NZD has not fallen below the low touched prior to Monday's stronger than expected Q4 labour cost index data. It is because the New Zealand Q4 labour cost data suggests there is a high risk of a New Zealand interest rate rise on 8 March. It is why we see the extremely interest rate sensitive AUD/NZD exchange rate at 1.0972 at end-March.

However, over the remainder of this week, ahead of the G7 meeting, NZD sentiment will remain poor which means a slight rise in tomorrow's Q4 New Zealand unemployment rate above (the expected) 3.8% will be met with heavy selling in the NZD. But a steady unemployment rate (or a small decline in the unemployment rate) will be met with a limited rally.

The AUD should continue to do well. A strengthening US economy is a positive for global growth and the AUD. Australia-US interest rate spreads remain supportive and base metal prices are at firm levels. Even a lower than expected January employment number (including a slight fall in total employment growth) should be met with limited AUD downside. Because the underlying trend in employment growth remains strong. We would view any downside in the AUD as a good buying opportunity. Our current short-term view of the AUD possibly testing a low of US$0.7625 is still in place. But we remain less confident of that lower level being touched. However, we remain confident of our medium-term forecast that the AUD will be at US$0.7900 by end-March. For the record, the RBA left interest rates unchanged today at 6.25% (as expected).

The New Zealand dollar exited lower Wednesday and looks set to remain out of favor this week ahead of a meeting of Group of Seven financial heads Friday. The Kiwi has been the biggest casualty in global currency markets in the past 48 hours from a mass liquidation of carry trades ahead of the G7 meeting. Market players are jittery ahead of the meeting on fears the G7 chiefs will discuss the yen's weakness and warn against the euro's continued ascent against that currency. That would underpin the yen and put the carry trade strategy - where traders borrow low-yielding currencies to buy higher yielding sovereigns - in jeopardy. Graham Parlane, associate director at foreign exchange concern Tricom, said investors were "loath to assume positions" ahead of the G7 meeting.

The economists in most of the major banks here are predicting a rather flat outcome on the emplyment data tomorrow. On the whole most of the pundits have underestimated the figures for the last few months. I think with the NSW economy flat and rural Australia still suffering from the drought the figure could be bad. Its at this time of the year the grains are moving, with little or no harvest in many parts of Australia those seasonal jobs will not be there. A negative figure of 20k or more may scare the heabie jeebies out of some.

Merrill Lynch has warned of a global credit crunch as central banks in Europe and Asia tighten monetary policy, advising clients to shun risk and switch to safer assets over the forthcoming months.

Presenting its strategy for 2007, the US bank said the world boom is clearly giving way to a slowdown that will shake up markets and punish smaller equities, industrial metals, and lower-tier assets of almost every kind.
Money can still be made as the cycle turns, chiefly by rotating into short-term cash deposits and quality stocks with good dividend yields such as AstraZeneca, Barratt Developments, Sweden's retailer H&M, or Spain's Banco Popular Espanol - along with a few bars of gold bullion.

The bank said 2007 would be the "year of the dividend", with fear returning as the VIX and VDAX volatility indexes - widely used in option trading - rise from record lows.

"We think global interest rates are going to rise a lot more than investors are discounting, and this is a worrisome outlook for profits," said Khuram Chaudhry, chief European strategist.

"We've seen liquidity everywhere, in equities, property, bonds. It's been a one-way bet for investors, and they've taken on a lot of risk. But they're not looking beyond the news to the slow drip-drip effect of interest rates. It matters when central banks tighten monetary policy," he said.

advertisement
The US Federal Reserve has raised interest rates 17 times already since June 2004 from 1pc to 5.25pc, but Europe has been slower and the Bank of Japan is still holding rates at 0.25pc - offering hedge funds an alternative window of easy money. This last window is about to close, albeit slowly.

Global liquidity - the monetary juice that fuels the system - reached a peak growth rate of 22pc at the end of 2005, even higher than the 15pc peak just before the dotcom bust in 2001.

The rate has since plummeted to around 10pc, and may have further to go. Mr Chaudhry said the suddenness of the fall matters more than the absolute level, typically serving as a warning signal with a lead time of 12 to 18 months.

It slid in a similar fashion in 2000, and before both the 1998 Asia crisis and the US Savings and Loan crisis in the 1980s.

Merrill Lynch said it was cutting back on British equities, viewed as too exposed to resource, energy, and mining stocks that have already seen the best of the cycle.

Britain is now one of the most heavily indebted countries in the world, leaving little scope for equity growth. Total loans amount to 162pc of GDP, compared with 111pc in the US and just 27pc in Poland. "The UK is going to struggle," said Mr Chaudhry.

Merrill Lynch is betting on banks in Eastern Europe, a "trend growth" story for the medium to long-term with plenty of staying power as credit use catches up with the West.

For those willing to dabble in Chinese equities, it suggests a switch from exporters to companies that serve local consumers as China's urban youth - Generation Y - catch the bug for western lifestyles. If in doubt, opt for the Chinese banks. They will fund the consumer revolution.

Ultimately, no country is immune to a liquidity crunch if central banks tighten too far, as they often do. "We can debate whether it's going to be a soft landing or a hard landing, but the bottom line is that we face a landing," said Mr Chaudhry.

The Reserve Bank of Australia held interest rates steady Wednesday in a move that will boost the conservative coalition government's flagging reelection hopes and sets the scene for a lengthy period of stable rates.

The RBA's decision, which has left the overnight cash rate at a 6-year high of 6.25%, suggests a growing confidence that three hikes in 2006 are proving sufficient to apply the economy's brakes.

Economists said the decision follows news in January of a 0.1% fall in inflation in the fourth quarter, the first quarterly drop in the consumer price index in 8 years.

At 3.3% year-on-year in the fourth quarter, inflation remains above the RBA's 2% to 3% target band, but economists say it is likely to return it within the comfort zone in coming quarters as fuel and food prices drop.

With a resurgent opposition Australian Labor Party taking a huge lead in recent polls, the coalition government under Prime Minister John Howard will view the rates-on-hold decision as a political lifeline. A Newspoll Wednesday showed two-party preferred support at 56% for Labor and 44% for the coalition.

An election is expected in late 2007 and the coalition is seeking a fifth consecutive term in office.

Under new leader Kevin Rudd, the ALP has emerged again as a serious electoral force with Howard telling party colleagues Monday "we begin the election year with a very big fight on our hands." RBA policy-makers met for the first time in 2007 on Tuesday to consider rates against an economic backdrop that includes falling inflation, record drought, slowing housing sector activity, and evidence of softer consumer demand.

Problems associated with a twin-speed economy are also part of the economic current framework. The China-led commodities boom has fueled strong growth in Western Australia, while major east coast economies such New South Wales are flirting with recession. Stephen Walters said the RBA statement on Monday will give the market an update on where the central thinks inflation will travel in 2007.

The RBA can be expected to lower its forecast for core inflation from 3.0% to 2.75%, he said. Core inflation strips out volatility that can otherwise skew the CPI and is critical to policy formulation at the RBA.

"This will signal two things - that the RBA is poised to remain on the policy sidelines for an extended period, but that a bias to tighten policy remains in place, although it has been weakened slightly," Walters said.

Mark Rodrigues, senior Australian economist at the ANZ Bank said the RBA appears to be happy that its rate's tonic so far has been appropriate.

"It suggests they have done enough and can afford to sit back and wait," Rodrigues said.

ANZ expects the next move in rates to be a cut in November.
The decision this week "reflects the broad tenure of recent data signaling upside risks to inflation have abated; there's easing momentum in credit growth in 2006 and a softening trend in retail sales," Rodrigues said.

* 07 Feb 07: 00:18(SGA) - FX NOW! USD/JPY, EUR/JPY Flows - NKS: Concerns Over Post-G-7 Yen Surge May Prove Unfounded

Focus on G7, Nihon Keizai Shimbun article: Despite the recent brouhaha over the yen's sharp decline, and the prospect that the G7 meeting later this week may tackle the issue, the Japanese currency is likely to remain stable throughout the proceedings. The G7 meet is grabbing the attention of not only FX market participants but also BoJ officials, who are worried that the G-7 meeting could touch off yen-buying as it did in April 2006. Some well-publicized issues will also be on the table," said MoF Koji Omi, fanning speculation the yen's slide may come up for criticism. Nevertheless, few expect G-7 to issue a statement calling for a correction in the yen's valuation. The Japanese market accounts for a mere 4.5% of EU exports. In addition, Japan has not intervened in the FX markets for the past three years or so.

No. The pattern played out...probably a recovery now before further drops... but 1.22 might be a medium term goal.

Kiwi reaching important levels soon. Below 6770 probably indicates further downside.

Wondering tho (using the daily candles) if its done a bullish gartley from the 66 level. Current price .68 is on the 62% retracement level from the .71 high. If this is the case it will climb quickly when it turns...
We are after all seeing a return of USD weakness.

WSJ(2/7) German Official Prods G-7 To Weigh In On YenBERLIN -- German Finance Minister Peer Steinbruck said the Group of Seven leading industrial nations will have to discuss the declining value of the yen at their meeting this week, despite Japanese and U.S. insistence that there isn't a problem.

Europe's desire to discuss the yen sets the stage for a tense meeting of G-7 finance ministers, which Mr. Steinbruck will lead in Essen, Germany, on Friday and Saturday. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal Monday, he also asserted that hedge-fund oversight should be part of G-7 discussions, despite U.S. and British reservations.
In Europe, there is widespread suspicion that Japan is using interest rates to keep its currency weak and to make its exports relatively less expensive. Both Japan and the U.S. have said the yen's development reflects the state of the Japanese economy. "That's why this club was founded. . . . We have to talk about it," Mr. Steinbruck said when asked about the yen. The G-7 includes the U.S., Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Italy and Canada.

European officials have expressed concern that the Bank of Japan's surprise decision last month to keep its interest rate at 0.25%, among the lowest in the developed world, was partly motivated by a desire to keep the yen weak relative to other currencies. Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker, who presides over meetings of finance ministers from euro-zone countries, said at the time that he detected "political influence" in the decision.

Christian de Boissieu, chairman of the French prime minister's Council of Economic Analysis, said in a separate interview that "I think the Japanese are playing a game, which is the game of the undervaluation of the yen. . . . This is good for growth and for the price competitiveness of Japanese exports."
