Carry trades and growing currency risks
By Gillian Tett FT.com
In the autumn of 1998, I bumped into a senior official at Long Term Capital Management, the US hedge fund, in a carpark in Tokyo (where I then worked). I’ve never forgotten the sight: not only was he haggard but his hair had turned almost white, seemingly overnight. No wonder. As I later discovered, that was the day LTCM was on the verge of implosion. And one factor driving that meltdown was a storm in Tokyo’s currency markets. Global hedge funds frantically unwound carry trades they had made using the yen – propelling the Japanese currency 18 per cent higher in three turbulent days.

RBA Statement Strips AUD Of Key Support-NAB
Any support for the Australian dollar flowing from the reasonable likelihood of a RBA rate hike over coming months all but evaporated with yesterday's RBA policy statement, says National Australia Bank currency strategist John Kyriakopoulos; reasonable risk remains a few weak domestic economic reports could prompt the market to price the next rate move as a cut. AUD will also struggle against currencies supported by heightened expectations of an interest rate hike in coming months including the Euro, New Zealand dollar and British pound.

Short term view eur/usd: After the non event over the weekend the pair found $ strength again and broke the 2975-65 area with a sell signal taken there. Now with resistance around the 2960-70, 3000-3010 area and with main resistance at 3035-45 area for now. On the downside we can look at support around the 2930-40 and 2900-10 area for now. Will be moving stops to entry point on the test of the 2930 area for now. Position main limit will be around the 2810-20 area for now but will cut position lose any suspected bounce. We are in a tight range market which makes it very hard for trend traders to profit. You must be quick in protecting stops but patient enough to let the winners roll (easier said then done) IMHO.

Trading off M&A news without insight to the patriculars of the deal is fraught with dangers.
Finance for this deal may be entirely in USD who is to know. Vodafone have deals going on all the time. This one may be funded with 100% debt, another may be 100% equity. There may still be issues with the deal that would prevent a conversion at this stage.
The thing is news of such deals affects market sentiment.
I don't think this transaction would have gone through today. Look at EUR/GBP on the whole GBP was firmer today than the euro. If it had been transacted I would have looked for a higher cross rate.
My theory is sterling weakened against USD on the back of the latter's strength.

Japanese Investors Turn Bullish on U.S. Treasuries (Update2)

By Wes Goodman and Daniel Kruger

Feb. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Bond investors in Japan, the biggest sellers of U.S. government debt last year, are returning to Treasuries as the dollar gains and yields rise.

Fuji Investment Management Co., which oversees the equivalent of $10.8 billion, boosted Treasuries in its global bond holdings to 40 percent from 30 percent in December, anticipating slower U.S. economic growth. Daiwa Asset Management Co., Japan's second-biggest money manager, is buying 10-year U.S. notes.

``The place to be is the Treasury market,'' said Akira Takei, a money manager at Fuji, a Tokyo-based unit of Mizuho Financial Group Inc., Japan's second-largest bank. ``The rally will resume in the bond market.''

Cable could be volatile when London opens. Sunday times is carrying an article Vodafone has agreed to buy Hutchison's Essar moble phone system in India for USD 19 billion (GBP9.6 Bio).
Couple of months ago when Vodafone sold off part of their interests in a swiss mobile phone company to local interests cable rose a couple of cents.
Difficult to see this acquisition being funded entirely in rupees, bulk of it likely in USD and GBP so should prompt some cable selling at some stage.
=================================
info like this without specific buy/sell levels was worth 73 pips in cable for me. question is is there more selling to come or not?thank you acc!

There are different ways to do this but my favorite has to do with volatility and momentum... Look at the longer timeframes to see your direction and learn the currency pair that you will trade. I like to trade one pair for long periods since it gives you a feel for what it wants to do...

An analogy I have used in the past is to think of a currency pair as a rubber band. It elasticity is determine by volatility and a couple other factors. It normally will stretch and snap back but a portion of the time it will snap. Learn to determine those points in price action and you are on your way...

This is my way, I am sure you will countless other ways so learn to see what works for you.

A strong dollar is in the interest of the U.S. and exchange rates should be set by market forces, U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said in a newspaper interview published Monday.

In a translated interview published in German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Paulson said: "It's clear: A strong dollar is in the interest of our country. And the exchange rate should be determined by competition."

He added that the U.S. trade deficit "is a problem of global imbalances."

"I see that we have a low savings rate in the U.S.; however the U.S. economy is a big engine which is spurring global growth," Paulson was quoted as saying. "And other regions such as Japan, China and to some extent also Europe are lacking demand."

He added that the U.S. trade deficit is "no reason for us to intervene in the economy," that the U.S. economy is growing and that is what his country has to focus on.

"Everyone has to help to reduce global imbalances," Paulson told the newspaper.

Asked whether the weak yen is a serious problem for the global economy, Paulson said "the yen's value is freely set by competition and on the basis of economic fundamentals." He added that Japan hasn't intervened in currency markets since 2004.

Asked if the Chinese yuan is a bigger problem for the U.S. administration, Paulson said that the yuan is an issue: "I trust market forces. The reason why we discuss the yuan so intensively with the Chinese is that they are controlling the exchange rate and it cannot find its level freely on markets," Paulson was quoted as saying.

He added that he is "cautious to call for more flexibility of the yuan soon. But in the medium term, the target must be that we won't need to talk about it because the yuan's exchange rate will be set by markets."

The Chinese agree that there's a need for more flexibility of the yuan, but "the question is to what degree and in which timeframe" this can happen, he said.

"For this, we need a liquid and open capital market which is marked by intensive competition," Paulson told the newspaper. He added that transparency "means different things to different people" and for him, the "focus must be" the relation between banks and investment banks as well as hedge funds.

The U.S. interest regarding hedge funds is aimed at protecting investors and looking at possible systemic risks, Paulson said. He added that the government's task is not to tell financial markets which risks they should take and what a good or bad risk is

1. A condition in which the price of an underlying asset has fallen sharply, and to a level below which its true value resides. This condition is usually a result of market overreaction or panic selling.

2. A situation in technical analysis where the price of an asset has fallen to such a degree - usually on high volume - that an oscillator has reached a lower bound. This is generally interpreted as a sign that the price of the asset is becoming undervalued and may represent a buying opportunity for investors.

1. Assets that have experienced sharp declines over a brief period of time are often deemed to be oversold. Determining the degree to which an asset is oversold is very subjective and could easily differ between investors.

2. Identifying areas where the price of an underlying asset has been unjustifiably pushed to extremely low levels is the main goal of many technical indicators such as the relative strength index, the stochastic oscillator, the moving average convergence divergence and the money flow index.

Oversold is the opposite of overbought.

I feel the europe talk and the bearish stg post no increase in rates etc all priced in now. Also hitting some decent levels to long stg crosses. Short euro/stg 66.80 Tar. 6575. Decent hedge with so much uncertainty surrounding the G7 GL/GT.

Still more bearish comments again this morning for stg. M+A and benign inflation and RHS euro/stg fix at 11 am and still euro/stg struggles to rally.....

GBP/$: Here is a setup scenario that I thought I would throw out into the forum for input:

Looking for the pound to hit two buy areas -
1.9380 which is a strong buy as we have two channels that intersect with their lower channel trendlines at that area.

Wednesday is BOE Quarterly Inflation Report and if the numbers show a need for further tightening then technically cable will be in a good area for the jump back up into the 1.96 area...

Less likely but a possibility nonetheless is at 1.9275 area again is a buy for at least 1.9533 as a strong target with 1.9630 area as a good top....

For those that already bought at 1.946+ area we are at a double bottom that was momentarily pierced. It looks like the earlier rise to the 1.9732-1.9455 38.2% retracement held and signified further weakness in cable. The drop afterwards confirmed and now a test of the bottom is occurring.

At the moment price action is not favor to surpass 1.97+ as weekly charts are showing a bearish momentum but the week has not yet closed. Just something to keep in view.

Now a line in the sand is at 1.9193 area and another at 1.9093. The former is very important to hold otherwise system traders will start to bias their longer-term trades for lower levels.

A strategy one can do for this week is to buy at the above two levels:
1.9350-80
1.9275-85

TP:
1.9533 (1)
1.9630 (2)

Still trying to get it right and understand the price movement of the EUR/USD for short term trades. Percentage day trade returns good, but looking to understand price movement on the short term.

Have been looking to use MACD and have problem finding suitable settings for short term trades and using it as a longer indicator.

Please reply on the help forum so that I can read them later, and, I do not wish to add unnecessary posts to the trading forum.

buying EURUSD @ 1.2990/85/80/75/70 with stop below 1.2955 and target of 1.3048 and hopefully a break higher shows here as the only ""safe"" trade for the moment.

I have the EUR/USD having bottomed around 1.3000 or around 1.2992 (38.2% fib) on the 1 hour 30 day chart. The price has been testing 1.3040 on this chart as a resistance level.

The UK market is yet to open (will give it about an hour to see what it does), and I have consensus fundamentals due out tomorrow overall in favour of the EUR.

Will see if the EUR/USD heads back to 1.3040, and at what rate, to see if I look for higher levels than 1.3040 on the up side for now.

I have trend lines on the 4 hour charts and longer saying the EUR has an up trend for now.

Could see some interesting bounces on the shorter charts once the price bottoms. Therefore placed low leverage positions on buy, and looking to place a major buy, with buys on the dips given other indicators.

Below I had my comments from last week. Since then 1.9533 has been touched. This morning the cable went up to the first retracement of 1.9560 area which is the 38.2% line from the 1.9732-19455 drop...

Weekly charts are showing sell momentum picking up so swing rallies on the sell side are looking more profitable with each swing and should be bias accordingly.

Daily cycle is also in a sell momentum and could provide for another 150 plus pips lower before momentum starts to rollover.

Bias is still to buy again 1.9380 area and possible 1.9280-1.9330 area as well for a target once again of 1.9533.....

GLGT

==================================
Athens MK 11:16 GMT February 9, 2007
My bias for cable reflects what I posted below:

1.9463 is my first area to buy - take profit at 1.9533 with partial postions and leave the rest to take further up.

Now if 1.9533 is not touched then price should drop to to the 1.9380 area where new majority buy positions should occur for 1.9533 TP.

One more area for new buys would be 1.9275 area as well with the above 1.9533 TP level.

Major stop and reverse position is the 1.9193 level...... Important...

This is a swing trade analysis an not a daytrader play....

China's January Trade Surplus Swells to $15.9 Billion (Update5)

By Nipa Piboontanasawat and Yanping Li

Feb. 12 (Bloomberg) -- China's trade surplus widened to $15.9 billion in January as exports gained by the most in 17 months, adding pressure on the government to let the yuan rise faster.

The gap, reported by the customs bureau on its Web site today, swelled by 65 percent from a year earlier. It was the fifth highest on record, exceeding the $15.5 billion median estimate of 20 economists surveyed by Bloomberg News.

MARKET TALK: Sell AUD/NZD Now G7 Is Over

Go short AUD/NZD now that G7 is out of the way, says Deutsche Bank. Given that the RBA downscaled its inflation forecast earlier in the day while New Zealand's retail sales and housing data later this week are expected to be robust, DB suggests an initial target of 1.1075 with a stop loss at 1.1475. The bank suggests that the pair, which are now at 1.1302, could make it all the way down to 1.08 in the longer-term.

Giant credit bubble behind yen slide: analysts
[11 Feb 2007]
TOKYO (AFP)

The more the carry trade succeeds, the more people it attracts, said Noriko Hama, an economics professor at Doshisha University in Kyoto.

"It tends to feed the depreciation" of the yen, she added.

No one knows the exact magnitude of the yen carry trade. Conservative estimates put its value at upwards of 200 billion dollars.

Some others estimate it to be much higher. Tim Lee of the US research firm Pi Economics reckons that the true size could be in excess of one trillion dollars -- equivalent to the annual national output of Canada.

He believes the yen is 29 percent undervalued against the dollar

China could hike interest rates 27 bps around March- April, with reserve ratio for banks likely hiked 50 bps in 1H07 and 2H07, says Citigroup economist Shen Minggao, as January trade surplus of $15.88 billion (vs $16.2 billion expected) likely to boost country's flush liquidity. Says data might reflect seasonal fluctuations caused by timing of Chinese New Year holidays. Adds, trade surplus could stop widening in 2H07 and may even narrow, if China maintains rate of CNY gains so far this year through 1H07.

RBA On Hold "For A Long Time To Come" - HSBC
RBA's statement on monetary policy plus revised forecasts indicate RBA wants to leave cash rate at 6.25% for "a long time to come", says HSBC's chief economist John Edwards; "there's nothing in the statement to warrant a further increase in the cash rate but nothing either to indicate a rate cut." Says modest increase in domestic demand plus fact export volumes growth yet to enjoy sustained acceleration leaves balance of risks in next 12-24 months towards some small reduction in cash rate.

RBA Statement Sets AUD/USD On Path To 0.7500 - DB


AUD/USD down at 0.7741 following RBA statement showing a "weakening in their rate tightening bias," making any change in monetary policy unlikely in 2007, says Deutsche Bank currency strategist John Horne. Expects AUD/USD to track toward 0.7500 in coming weeks as expectations of a midyear rate hike unwind; RBA's forecast of 2Q07, 4Q07 underlying inflation at 2.75% and 2Q08, 4Q08 underlying inflation of 2.5%-3% "indicate the most likely policy reaction from here is unchanged."

Whether Vodafone comes to the market to buy USD aginst GBP or not I reckon the market will anticipate this move. Hutchison will want payment in USD, Vodafone will not be able to fund the entire acquisition in rupees, the Indian capital markets are not that big.
Furthermore there is another report in the same paper that Wednesday's BoE inflation report will be benign, although a further 25 bp increase is likley if at all. This is a change from last week when prior to the announcement of no change on Thursday the market had factored in two 25 bp increases.
So then take both news items together depending on your interpretation of the inflation report it is at least beither sterling neutral or negative in my view.

AUD/USD loses ground after RBA's statement on monetary policy; falls to intraday low of 0.7755 from 0.7775 pre-statement; RBA expects slower underlying inflation in the medium-term; tips 2Q07, 4Q07 underlying inflation at 2.75% and 2Q08, 4Q08 underlying inflation of 2.5-3%. "With the new forecast for year-ended underlying inflation it does suggest that the RBA is on hold this year and that's the simplistic view traders are taking at the moment," says Robert Rennie, currency strategist at Westpac Bank.

Australia's RBA predicts headline inflation peaked in 2006 and will slow to 1.75% by 2Q 2007 before picking up to 2.5%-3% by 4Q 2008, inside RBA's 2%-3% target. RBA's latest statement on monetary policy also forecasts Australia's GDP growth will likely be little higher than 2.2% on year in 3Q 2006. Forecasts assume world oil price, Australian dollar exchange rate remain steady and break in prolonged drought that has sliced 0.5 point off potential GDP growth.

Cable could be volatile when London opens. Sunday times is carrying an article Vodafone has agreed to buy Hutchison's Essar moble phone system in India for USD 19 billion (GBP9.6 Bio).
Couple of months ago when Vodafone sold off part of their interests in a swiss mobile phone company to local interests cable rose a couple of cents.
Difficult to see this acquisition being funded entirely in rupees, bulk of it likely in USD and GBP so should prompt some cable selling at some stage.
