Japan Omi:Expect G7 To Discuss Econ Issues Broadly

Slight tick up in risk of RBA March rate hike which prompted by fall in Australia's jobless rate to 30-year low is shortlived: Market now pricing in 1% chance of 25bp hike, down from 3% after yesterday's jobs data; medium-term forecasts calculated by Credit Suisse implied monetary policy index suggest only 7 bps of tightening next 12 months which points to market expectations RBA on hold at 6.25% for time being.

1.3042 looks like a good high for the move since 1.2912 low.max seen to 1.3052.a close tomm below 1.2980 may well put an end to all further upside.

NZD/USD likely to remain heavy as market jittery after Finance Minister Cullen's mortgage levy comments, says ABN AMRO currency strategist Greg Gibbs; adds comment "is a negative for the currency and may continue to reverberate though the market for a while." Adds while levy may not see light of day, market nervous. Cullen told Radio NZ that RBNZ's proposal to impose levy on home mortgages to cool housing inflation without having to keep raising interest rates may be worth pursuing further. Pair, which fell nearly 50 points after comments, last 0.6838.

NY BANK PROP TRADER,

So you are saying euro is a short at 1.3063, if it is whats the target.

New York Bank Prop Trader 20:54 GMT February 8, 2007 Reply   
There have been some very smart sellers today in EUR/JPY. Having said that, EUR remains well bid and while I like USD/JPY to trade lower in Europe, it should remain firm in Asia. On that basis, I think we can see EUR/JPY bid into the Tokyo fix .... I do think the topside is limited and expect it to remain in a 157.50-158.10 range. Initially a dip to low 70-75, then a subsequent rally back to 158.00. EUR is a sale at 1.3063 .... take that to the bank!

If you are interested in the next hours I don't know.
If you are interested on possible risks next week, more than G7 i suspect it will be Treasury refunding, where the coupon payments are the heaviest in 7 years. If all reinvested not problems. But February is the most delicate regard to Japan, considering next fiscal year end there.

In political terms it would be also an excellent excuse.
Good luck.

EURJPY .... GBPUSD.... etc.... (daily 100 pips or more!!!) is normally a warning sign... The market forces are now 2 sided and strenght is ALWAYS followed immediately by weakness and profit taking... we are ante and post G7 set up for INCEDIBLE MOVES..... probably the ranges will break down in those 3 mentioned pairs... market is squeezed , shorts are out... the whole planet thinks money for nothing is only starting.... my opinion... cable... 1.85000 sooninsh.. eurchf 15700 soonish and eurjpy 13500 soonish...

No wonder Paulson is big fan of low japanese interest rates, a weak yen,carry trades and hedge funds . Even a bancrupt hedge fund like Amaranth created $ billions of revenues for the big american brokers. Imagine what revenue profitable carry trades create. And if things go wrong like with LTCM there is always the FED and the american tax payer to pay the margin call so that the hedge funds and the US banks can trade profitable out of their positions. This is probably the reason why nobody is sharing Steinbrucks concerns about idistorted forex and interest rates .

Over the last couple of years central banks have tried hard to inform the markets in a timely fashion i.e. not surprise them with unanticipated moves.
Last month's increase defied that trend. In hindsight that was justified on the basis of the inflation rate.
The market is now very nervous as evidenced by the postings on this forum.
While I lean towards no increase today the committee may decide to go and have it done with in the hope of reintroducing certainty in later months.

Remember inflation? It’s back. Time for actionAnatole Kaletsky
At noon today the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee will decide whether to raise interest rates for the second month in succession, or whether to wait for another month or two. I have no idea which way the MPC will vote and, in the great scheme of things, it is hard to get very excited about a change of just a quarter of a point. Over time, however, repeated quarter-point moves can add up to quite big economic changes

Near-Term BOE Hike On Cards, Odds Against Feb But Report May Not Be Enough To Rally Majority Round Rate Hike --By David Robinson and David Thomas

The Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee is unlikely to drum up a majority for a rate hike in February, but the chance of another rate hike near term remains high. As four members of the nine-strong MPC voted against the shock January hike, they can be counted on to oppose a further hike this week. That means the doves only need one more vote to keep rates on hold.

There was plenty of evidence in the January minutes that MPC members were concerned about the risks of a surprise policy tightening. Some members warned of "the risk of prompting an excessive monetary tightening by shifting up market interest rates" while others made the case for the hike in order to avoid greater tightening later.

The most recent comments from MPC officials suggest that the divisions seen in the minutes from the Jan 10-11 meeting have hardly been resolved and that, if there were to be a hike this week, support for it will be as split as the last one.

The recent rise in the exchange rate along with the rise in market interest rates -- which was triggered by the surprise Jan 11 hike -- will help to contain the upside to the 2-year inflation forecast. If the Inflation Report does show inflation broadly on track, this may still not be enough to create a consensus on the MPC for or against another hike.

Besley has already made clear that he believes the Inflation Report's central forecast rests on an overly optimistic assumption about inflation expectations. Blanchflower believes it underestimates labour market slack, and with CPI set to start the forecast period well above target at 3.0%, the report could still leave wriggle room for another hike.

Expect the unexpected from the Bank of England's interest rate meeting today, economists have warned the City, leaving markets on tenterhooks over whether the Monetary Policy Committee will lift borrowing costs.

Traders said they anticipated an extremely hectic day in the markets, with so much uncertainty hanging over the Bank's midday decision. Economists are still bruised after the Bank took the entire fraternity by surprise and lifted borrowing costs by a quarter of a percentage point last month.

The AUD has been correlating very well with the 1yr US-AU irs spread for most of its trading life...this correlation unexpectedly broke midway 2004....from that point, the spread tightened from 320bp to the current 105bp, but the AUD either consolidated in an upward trend or made substantial gains towards 0.8000...with the spread now having bottomed out and back on an upward trend, the AUD is set to accelerate to the upside....the old rules just dont apply, thats why most of the Australian major banks had a negative outlook on the AUD for a while......they just looked at the spread tightening, and automatically assuemed the AUD will follow.....the reason why the correlation broke are numerous, but i hasten to add, that without a global slow down, the AUD will maintain its upward bias...0.8200 medium term outlook

While BHP has indicated that they will buyback USD 10 billion of its stock this will include USD 2.5 billion in an off-market parcel of Australian listed stock. The remainder will likely be London listed stock which trades at a discount to the Australian.
FWIW the are significant outward flows from supoerannuation funds owing to the need to diversify owing to the tax breaks and the Future Fund. I see these tempering any upside for the Aussie along with lower commodity returns.

Looking at BHP/BILLITON profits which is backward looking data when trying to relate it to the future value of aud dollar, is not wise.More relevant data would be to look at the base metal volatility of the last 2 weeks as a forward looking indicator....there always is a lagging gap between metal movement and aud value, that eventually closes....g/t

With BHP surging ahead,Aud downside must be rather limited..

Personally I find it difficult to get too bullish on Aussie, nonetheless it doesn't pay to look too far ahead at the moment. I think 0.7830 is possible although the banks have good orders up to 0.7820, CBA is confident about 0.7900 over the next few weeks.
On the crosses against GBP and EUR there's proabbly little upside, but if as seems likely JPY will escape without any negative comments in the weekend's G7 communique then USD/JPY will move up to 122.00 fairly smartly (if not sooner) which would make 95.00 probable.

High default lkevels are a common faeture of non-conforming loans. Typically anywhere up to 5% of outstanding loans by value can be more than 90 days in arrears.

Did Moody's give a level for defaults in their report?

Labor government makes Costello 'nervous'
Treasurer Peter Costello said today the thought of a "novice Labor government" running the economy makes him more nervous than ending up the leader the opposition after the next federal election.
Mr Costello said he was fighting the next election for the sake of the Australian people and their economic prospects, and he was not thinking about a job he didn't have.
