Japan all household spending in January rises 0.6% on year after 1.9% fall in December; this beats expectations for 0.3% fall as shown by Dow Jones/Nikkei poll. Data hint at recovery in consumption, which would help economic growth; BOJ carefully watching consumer spending, prices as key factors in deciding timing of next rate hike

The stock market rout was preceded
by classic warning signals that now
appear obvious in hindsight - unusually
low volatility, the longevity of the recent
rally, bullish consensus, record margin
debt and a stretch for returns in risky
markets.
One indicator that has garnered less
attention but may deserve a prominent
role in contrarians’ diagnostic toolbox is
the sheer level of market turnover. Very
high volume and very low volatility can
exist simultaneously since a large number
of trades doesn’t preclude a slow,
steady rise or fall in prices. Extremely
active stock trading relative to the size of
an economy can mean a number of
things - the entry of new participants, an
abundance of liquidity or perhaps just a
“fast-money” ethos.
“Any spike in turnover tells you
there’s a surge in traders versus
investors,” said Alan Newman, editor of
stock market newsletter Crosscurrents.
“That means the market has entered a
very speculative phase and value is not a
factor.”
Newman points to prior periods of
very high turnover, with ominous peaks
in 1929 and 2000, two of the most
painful years in stock market history.
Turnover on the three major U.S. stock
exchanges last year was $35.4 trillion,
equal to about 206% of market capitalization
and just shy of the all-time record
of 220% set in 1929, the year of the
crash. As a percentage of gross domestic
product, stock turnover was 263%,
short of the record 328% seen in 2000
during the height of the tech boom but
well above the average of about 40%
seen from 1930-1995, said Newman.

Marc Faber Says Global Stock Markets May Fall Further
Faber expects the Standard & Poor's 500 Index to decline as much as 15 percent followed by a cut in interest rates in the U.S. as the economy deteriorates later this year. The decline in the U.S. economy may lead to a ``big selloff in equity markets around the world,'' said Faber, who oversees $300 million in assets at Hong Kong-based Marc Faber Ltd. LINK

USD/JPY has downside bias in Asia with 1st target of 117.35, then 117 for global day - break of which would open way to 116, says Okasan Securities senior dealer Tsutomu Soma. "Everything is up to stocks prices now"; adds if bourses - including Japan, Shanghai, or NY - perform badly again in global day, would lead to selling USD amid view players to unwind carry trade positions. Pair last holding around 117.59 on EBS, near NY close. Adds Japan Jan CPI, household spending, jobless data due at 2330 GMT unlikely to have major impact as focus is on Nikkei and anyway BOJ's next move on rates widely expected to be some time away

Carry trading unwinding will continue to weigh on AUD/USD into early Asian trading while there's potential for losses to deepen if today's 4Q current account data shows a wider-than-expected result, says John Kyriakopoulos, currency strategist at National Australia Bank. Economists expectations are for Australia's current account to widen to A$14.00 billion in 4Q from A$12.08 billion in 3Q; imports seen strong though export side of ledger needs to improve; possibility for exports to reverse towards the end of 2007. "Late this year we'd be looking for net export contributions to be consistently positive at around 0.3% per quarter," said Michael Workman, senior economist at Commonwealth Bank of Australia

[USD/CAD] has stopped just shy of the large build of stops lurking above 1.1750 as Cad/Yen recovers nicely back above 100.00. The anti-carry trade activity of the day seems to have been stretched to its limits - at least in the short term, and selling strength in the headline could now hold some decent value. Oil continues to hold strong around Usd 62.0brl which should encourage some buying of the Loonie into any dips. Despite today's data blip (much worse than expected Canadian c/a data), releases out of Canada have been on the firm side lately, thus selling ahead of the key 1.1769 tech resistance is suggested for now.

Australian dollar moves lower against the US dollar overnight with Thursday's stronger-than-expected US ISM manufacturing giving the US currency a lift against most major crosses. AUD/USD begins Friday's session at 0.7855 down from 0.7862 late Thursday with further carry trade unwinding also weighing on prices; more pressure expected from carry trade dumping to drag on AUD/USD with any fall below 0.7810 likely to prompt accelerated selling. Local data due today includes January retail sales and 4Q current account numbers.

NZD/JPY Fall Could Extend To 77.40 This Mo - ANZ
NZD/JPY headed further down as uridashi, eurokiwi issuance over past 48 hours not enough to slow pair's fall, says ANZ Bank; "yesterday's slight corrective move has been obliterated as markets now look to target a move potentially as deep as 77.40 during this month." Says price action, volatility in global markets past few days show diminishing appetite for risk, causing renewed bout of carry trade unwinding. Pair last 81.54, fell to 2.5 month low of 81.01 offshore - has dropped as much as 5.5% this week.

[USD/JPY] has staged a modest pullback after earlier breaking below the 200 day m.a. at 117.39. The Jpy crosses have also seen some stabilisation; stops tripped under 154.60 in Eur/Jpy prompting some profit taking and holding the cross shy of stops under 154.25 (100 day m.a. at 154.32). Attention now focusses on both the raft of Japanese data (18.33GMT) out at 23.30GMT and the performance of Asia's stock markets. Should more falls pan out in the latter, funds are again likely to pull out funds and reverse the short-Jpy leg of the funding play. Bids are in place at 117.00 in the pair, though a sustained push beyond 117.39 would probably imply another sizeable downmove is in prospect.

Carry trades have been unwinding like bandages on a mummy this week, leaving the dollar in tatters versus the yen.

But as long as the pullback remains confined to mostly speculative investors and the bulk of other carry traders - institutions and private Japanese investors - hold firm in their positions, then recent events may not inflict much more damage on the greenback.

"The major chunk of carry trades are coming from Japanese investors, and they're not going to immediately run for the hills over this," said John McCarthy, director of foreign exchange at ING Capital Markets.

That's because a profit can still be made by borrowing a low-yielding currency, like the yen, and "carrying" it - or using it to buy currency that pays more interest, like the dollar or sterling.

Still, there is a breaking point for all investors, speculative and long-term, and if the yen were to continue to climb significantly versus the dollar and the euro, then carry trade unwinding may turn more universal.

The dollar, McCarthy said, would have to dip to the sub-Y110s before the majority of institutions and individual Japanese investors began pulling their carry trades. Thursday afternoon, the yen stood at Y117.49.

Some analysts say levels around Y110 are not out of the question. The Japanese economy is likely to stage a rebound this year, which could encourage more capital inflow and less outflow, and give a carry trade-harming boost to the yen.
Yen Strength Looms
But others argue that Japan's economy could grow at a rapid pace this year amid stronger export performances, which could improve consumer and business confidence and may lead to more aggressive rate hikes by the BOJ, despite the bank's suggestions that such increases would be gradual.

Analysts at ABN Amro Bank said in a research note that they would not be surprised to see Japanese economic data begin to out-perform other majors and Asian countries, which could lead to further yen gains.These same analysts last Friday warned of a carry trade unwind similar to what happened this week, saying "the carry trade, while justified on various grounds, has become excessive and has blinded the market to a number of fresh developments that point to upside risks in the yen."

USD/JPY may consolidate between 117.00 - 118.50 in the next 3-5 days... unlikely to see 119.50+ next week. Because of the JPY cross very bearish.

The IMF's Rato is the latest to point out the obvious on the dangers of the carry trade, but we expect that he too is preaching to a market that is already fully aware. Naturally, the fast money is jumping on his comments to push the JPY a littel firmer, but unless the authorities want some 'sharp FX moves' (surely not?), we expect there are still plenty of patient JPY shorts out there.

Eurozone inflation up 1.8 per cent in February
By Ivar Simensen in Frankfurt
ft.com-Last updated: March 1 2007 11:30

Inflation in the eurozone grew and the region’s manufacturing sector expanded in February by less than expected, though still enough to support expectations that the European Central Bank will raise interest rates further.

The projected top line of the pennant (ref: my previous posts) appears to be holding on the 5min 12hr chart as well.

Level to break for more up appears as:

I7 pivot on the 1wk 3yr chart at 1.3219
50% fib on the 1hr 5day chart around 1.3220

Bed time for me with a stagnant EUR/USD market at the moment, so will set my levels on various trades as short term charts I have as giving some down indication at the moment, therefore I see some uncertainty in the EUR/USD market for this trading session.

In reference to the carry trade, the bigger picture (not daily pips trading) is Japan is raising rates for the first time in years. This will be gradual, but the fact is they aer rising. The carry trade was put on slowly and will be taken off slowly with the risk being to disorderly unwinding. Carry trade interest evaporates after increased volatility. Not a one way road, but certainly more visble. Go gold 750.

“with possible short trades.”

To save confusion - I mean that I am looking to take small pip profit on the up movement on various trades and leverage within my major trade on the dips in the price. That way I will attempt to cover the losses on my major trade I placed earlier.

If the price breaks the upper level of the pennant, then I have more profit with extra trades, until then we shall see.

“Trotter , I see a pennant over the last two days. “

That is what I have, but misused it:


The daily pivot of 1.3216 appears to be the centre of the ‘possible pennant’ (ref. My previous posting). Now looking for up.

Took profit before up to the upper level of the ‘pennant’. Should have traded down from there, but didn’t because a false break of the level. Had short term indicators saying down with long still saying up, and see some uncertainty in the EUR/USD market - lesson learnt.

Trading up from the daily pivot after the opening of the UK market, and will ‘nurse’ my early entry buy trades, with possible short trades.

Pressure to around the weekly R2 pivot of 1.3252.

Japan's Watanabe: Economic Recovery Is Now Sustained


Japan's economic recovery has become sustained, with household consumption beginning to make a contribution to a revival that was initially driven by exports, Hiroshi Watanabe, Vice Finance Minister for International Affairs, said Thursday.

"The recovery of the economy is sustained and led by the private sector," Watanabe said. "There is a good amount of household consumption."

Watanabe was speaking to investors at a conference on Japan's bond markets.

Downside, the bank sees risk through the mid-February lows of 1.9405 to target the 2007 lows of 1.9265-35, which are seen as a monthly closing barrier to 1.8820 and 1.8480.

Carry Likely To Return But Not As Before

Carry trades may well return but they are unlikely to resume as before.

Not only will investors be more cautious over the size of their exposure, they are also likely to be more discerning than they were previously.

This week's global shakeout - which sent stock markets reeling, investors racing out of high-risk markets, and EBS recording its busiest day ever - has certainly shaken confidence.

Steve Barrow, chief currency strategist at Bear Stearns International in London, pointed out that, despite the rebound, investors will continue to look over their shoulders.

"We remain nervous that a deeper rout could still be on the cards such is the liquidity and leverage in the market, and in carry trades in particular," Barrow said.
Even without some shift in perceptions about risk or the U.S. recovery, some suggest that the market was already ripe for a correction. Bilal Hafeez, chief currency strategist with Deutsche Bank in London, point to the near 20% overvaluation of a typical basket of G10 carry trades, long of the New Zealand and Australian dollars and the pound but short of the yen, Swiss franc and Swedish krona.

"In the past such fundamental overvaluation has typically led to periods of significant underperformance in carry trades," Hafeez noted.

FT: A senior MoF official said he thought a sudden reversal of the carry trade was unlikely because institutional investors were hedged agst currency swings, while retail investors were less likely to repatriate funds quickly.

On BoJ policy, he departed from the finance ministry line that there is no need to raise rates in the absence of inflation. He backed BoJ Mizuno's argument, saying: "Rates of 0.5%, or even worse 0.25% or zero, make the market economy a joke. Money must have some price. Otherwise you just have a free flow of money investing in inefficient enterprises."

Former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan said a recession in the U.S. is possible, though not probable this year as inventory problems in the economy are being addressed quickly. He acknowledged at the time that most economists are not predicting a recession. His successor, Ben Bernanke told Congress yesterday that the Fed still expects the economy to pick up later this year. - BBG.

FT: Iran's top security official, Ali Larijani, indicated yesterday that Tehran would take part in a Baghdad conference this month on Iraq's future, but the White House insisted that the meeting would not be an occasion for bilateral talks between the US and Iran.

Syria has accepted the invitation. And despite its hesitation, Iran would be embarrassed if it failed to attend. The State Dept spokesman Sean McCormack raised the possibility Sec Condoleezza Rice would meet directly with Iran's Manouchehr Mottaki, but not to discuss the nuclear issue.While the State Department was signalling a possible shift in policy, the White House was eager to insist that US policy had not changed.

Japan Government spokesman Yasuhisa Shiozaki reiterates Japan economy on recovery track, no comments on stocks.

Aust Q4 new capital expenditure rose +1.0%q/q lower than exp of +4.0%.

Focus still on JPY, CHF carry trades and stock markets. Still very good 2-way interest in Cross/JPY, downside supported by huge local Japanese mega-city banks, importers demand at lows 118, topside capped by offshore selling, Asian accounts, China, UK clearers, US investment houses selling capping highs of 118.85-90, and interesting talks of selling by large Japanese custodian names - repatriation?.

Focus on stocks, with Shanghai -2.91% now. USD/JPY hit highs of 118.85 on fixing while EUR/JPY leapt to 157.28 highs fm 156.75 in early trade on Japanese buying, only to come off as funds sold Cross/JPY - still looking to unwind JPY carry trades.

Focus on unnamed MoF official comments in FT that interest rates of 0.50%, 0.25% or worse 0% make market economy a joke supporting JPY on speculation of more BoJ hikes to come. East Europeans, Russian, German sold huge GBP/JPY from 233 to sub 232 in afternoon trades, pushing USD/JPY to 118.14, EUR/JPY to 156.10 lows, before rebounding as Japanese mega-city banks absorbed the huge selling and bought it up.

USD/JPY bids still at 118.00-10 lows, but stoploss orders building on break of 117.90 and key level still rumoured options at 117.50. GBP/JPY offers coming in at 233 handle, with key focus on 230.00 handle after the huge selling today.

EUR/USD still locked in range of 1.3180-1.3250, with focus on EUR/JPY, EUR/CHF selling pressure.

AUD/USD weighed by big 4 OZ bks, Asian, China selling ahead of 0.7900 handle, and huge Centro M+A and lower Aust Q4 Capex, NZD lower on NZD/JPY sales, AUD/NZD buying. USD could gain on lower Iran-US tensions with Iran agreeing to attend talks, oil could dip.

Would appreciate your comments with regard to the possibility that some measure other than interest rate increase may be introduced. That surcharge attacks the one benefit fixed interest mortgages give a borrower ie certainty of cost. If one was to be hit with this levy what would be the point of taking out a fixed rate mortgage especially if was higher than the variable rate.
I guess if the RBNZ and government were to introduce some measure other than interest increase other than adjustment to income tax or GST rates it would require parliamentary approval and would be weeks away. It would be interesting though Kiwi would definitely take a bath.

I think a hike of .25 , I'm budgeting for it with my mortage already heh. Cant see .5 , imo not raising is more likely

From an article in The NZHerald today
______________
The financial markets see only a one-in-five chance that Bollard will not hike the official cash rate next Thursday, even though:
* The most recent readings on economic growth are only 0.3 per cent for the quarter and 1.4 per cent for the year.
* Inflation at 2.6 per cent is inside the target band and heading lower.
* The official cash rate is already 7.25 per cent and has been for more than a year.
* The dollar is close to US70c.
The fall in inflation is a short-term reflection of lower world oil prices; the underlying inflation pressures remain strong.
And those growth numbers relate to the September quarter last year. The evidence since then is that the economy is gathering speed again - at least the parts which are related to domestic spending rather than export earnings. There is little sign of the slowdown in the housing market and consumer spending that Bollard has said he needs to see.
____________________

But what is interesting is a document on the RBNZ website (which was sent to the FinMin) outlining a Mortgage Interest Levy the purpose of which is "to supplement the OCR in periods when housing market-related pressures in New Zealand were particularly intense..."
This of course would give Bollard another tool to deal with the main reason for his concern - housing prices, and if he is working this angle he may not feel the need to hike. Just a thought.

Some market players doubt whether U.S. stocks will continue to stabilize following rally overnight. "There is still a good chance that U.S. stocks will swing" back and forth for time being, head of derivative trading at brokerage says. 52.39-point gain on DJIA overnight offers little proof U.S. stocks on recovery track after 416.02-point plunge Tuesday, he adds. Such volatility could hurt Japanese stocks again like Wednesday. Depending how far U.S. stocks drop, Nikkei could fall to psychologically key 17000 this week or next, he adds.

[USD/CHF] was sold down by intraday spec types near the 1.2199 intraday high bringing it to an intraday low of 1.2183 where it is currently trading. The first improvement in the KOF leading indicator index in 7 months as well as a strong UBS consumption index the day before will bode well for the GDP report which is due on Mar 6. The combination of a very hawkish SNB Board and the recent run of decent economic data plus the latest unwinding of carry trades will provide fodder for the CHF to advance further against the greenback. With no economic data out of Switzerland today, the pair will look to US initial claims, personal income, ISM (Manufacturing) and Treasury Sec Paulson's speech for inspiration.

We will get a clearer indication in the next hour or so, but it strikes me we will see further liquidation of short yen positions. Euro, sterling, Aussiue and Kiwi are all on their lows for the day and have moved left over the last couple of hours.
Stock markets are off so I would hold on to your seat it might be a rough ride tonight.

[USD/CAD] rose from an earlier low of 1.1657 to an o/n high of 1.1739 on fears of a slowdown in global demand for commodities in the event of a global slowdown triggered by the stock market meltdown. The Loonie which is very much influenced by the prices of commodities was on the defensive in early London trade as fears of further falls in commodity prices saw the pair piercing through the 1.1700 handle. However the Loonie strengthened to recoup some of the earlier losses in New York as commodities prices stabilised and crude oil recovered to close higher at $61.79. Today sees the release of the Canadian Q4 current account balance and the Jan Industrial Product Price Index (IPPI). The weak Loonie in Q4 of 2006 should help to boost trade activity. Buying orders at 1.1670 by a UK Clearer will protect the downside and selling orders at 1.1740 by exporters will limit upside gains.

BOJ [MIZUNO] is introduced in tdy's FT as one of the most hawkish members of the BOJ policy board and says cheap money including the so-called Yen carry trade has side effects, which was the main reason for BOJ's latest rate hike.

[GBP/USD] met European and US invt bank sellers at the intraday high of 1.9652 and subsequently drifted down to an intraday low of 1.9617 before a US Prime came in to buy it at 1.9625 bringing it to current level of 1.9640. With a slew of economic data due today which includes the manufacturing sector PMI, consumer credit, mortgage lendingmortgage approvals, M4 and the CBI Distributive Trades Survey, the pair will plenty of reasons for moving one way or the other. On balance though, the data should be mixed with some improvement expected in the manufacturing sector but the distributive trades survey is expected to deteriorate. This should keep the pair within a 1.9610-1.9660 range before the data.

Neither AUD or Kiwi has recovered much since the sell-off, although the latter has done a little better.
Things are shaping up for another run tonight, USD/JPY and others have moved towards the left over the last hour or so. Nikkei is down 230 points (1.3%) and All Ords has been in negative territory all day but not as bad as Japan.

Japan Econ Doing Reasonably Well
Greenspan said the Japanese economy is doing "reasonably well." He also said that "Japanese people seem to be more patriotic than the rest of us" considering that households buy big amounts of government bonds, helping keep interest rates down, CLSA quoted him as saying.

Greenspan repeated that it's in China's interest to allow the yuan's exchange rate to be set by the market, but that doing so wouldn't lead to an improved U.S. trade balance because imports from China may decrease but would likely be replaced by imports from other developing countries, according to CLSA.

The former Fed chief also said that it would be "counterproductive" to directly regulate hedge funds, which are key for maintaining global economic growth, and that the most effective way to supervise them is via counter-party regulation, according to the bank

Japan's chief government spokesman said Thursday that the nation's economy remains on a recovery track.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yasuhisa Shiozaki made the remarks in response to a fall in global stock prices Wednesday that caused the Nikkei 225 Stock Average to plunge 515.80 points, or 2.9%, to 17604.12, its biggest point decline since June 13, 2006.

"Basically, nothing has changed our view that Japan's economic fundamentals are on a recovery path," Shiozaki told a regular press conference.

DB's chief economist Darren Gibbs says biggest risk to widely held view of a 25bp hike next week is that RBNZ opts for a "strategic" 50bp hike to send a strong signal to housing market.. Notes an aggressive move now would lessen likelihood that follow-up hikes would be needed; plus such a move would ultimately dent domestic demand indicators sufficiently enough to bring forward a sustained NZD downturn, providing relief to exporters.

Greenspan Says US Recession "Not Probable"

Latest comments from ex-Fed chief Greenspan may bring more stability to global markets as he adds qualifier to recent statement that U.S. recession later in year is "possible"; tells CLSA forum in Tokyo via satellite that end-year recession is "possible" but "not probable," adds worst is over for U.S. housing market. Greenspan helped spook markets earlier in week by using the "R" word at a time many economists are starting to fret over state of U.S. economy given weakness in housing sector in particular and amid weak data of late; he did at the time add most forecasters weren't predicting a recession but latest comments bring this point home more clearly. Current Fed chief Bernanke poured some balm over markets last night by sticking with his moderately upbeat view on economy

While USD/JPY still a bit higher from NY, pair is off early peaks and may not rise above 119 in Asia given selling by non-Japan funds, says trader at Tokyo securities company; "certainly, many players have been building up dollar longs given the recovery in Chinese and U.S. stock prices, but a cautious mood about the dollar has persisted." Still, if buy-stops at 118.80-119 pile up and are triggered, may rise to 119.20; last at 118.60 on EBS

Euro Topped?
Wednesday, 28 February 2007 12:07:23 GMT
Written by Jamie Saettele, Technical Currency Analyst

Our analysis from yesterday that “a likely level for a reversal is 1.3257/64. 1.3257 is the 78.6% fibo of 1.3364-1.2865 and 1.3264 is the monthly R1 pivot. Additionally, the 61.8% extension of waves 1 through 3 is at 1.3253 (1.3081 + (.618 x (1.3190 – 1.2911))” has proved correct so far. A break below yesterday’s low at 1.3160 would bolster the bearish case. Near term resistance is at former intraday support of 1.3211. Yesterday’s high at 1.3262 needs to hold in order for the bearish structure to remain intact. Short term bearish support on a break below 1.3160 is at 1.3080. Also keep in mind that this decline is expected to take prices below 1.2865 (eventually and barring a break above 1.3262).

New Zealand Dollar In Small 5th Down
Wednesday, 28 February 2007 12:10:05 GMT

Written by Jamie Saettele, Technical Currency Analyst

Analysis is unchanged from yesterday – “Given the long term head and shoulders pattern along with the 78.6% fibo of .7470-.5927 at .7138, it is possible that Kiwi is near a major top. The best interpretation on the daily accounts for an extended wave 1 from .5927. As mentioned with the USDJPY, a correction following a 5 wave sequence where the 1st wave is extended tends to bottom near the bottom of the 2nd wave. Thus, expectations are for a decline to .6528 from near current price. The 78.6% fibo at .7138 is risk.” Similar to the AUDUSD, it looks like a small 5th wave is working down (from .7028).

The longer term wave structure suggests that a major top is in place at 1.9915. In fact, the rally from 1.8090 traced out an ending diagonal. Ending diagonals are often fully retraced. A decline below 1.9260 strongly suggests that a top is in place at 1.9915. The rally to 1.9675 may have completed a correction of the 1.9915-1.9401 decline. Only a decline below 1.9401 gives scope to more additional potential.

Swiss Franc Reversal at 61.8%
Wednesday, 28 February 2007 12:06:37 GMT

Written by Jamie Saettele, Technical Currency Analyst

From yesterday “the pair is currently in the C wave position of the A-B-C correction. Although the pair has bounced this morning at the 50% fibo of 1.1878-1.2575 at 1.2227, the intraday charts suggest that the decline has more to go. Watch the 61.8% fibo of 1.1878-1.2575 at 1.2145 for a bottom.” Price has rallied over 60 pips off of yesterday’s low at 1.2144 but price needs to rally above the 2/20 low at 1.2312 to more confidently say that at least a near term low is in place. Still, downside risk is limited.

I am uncertain which way Aussie will go. It seems stuck around here at the moment with plenty of support and resistance against the USD which also translates to uncertainty against JPY as well.
At the moment there are serious tax breaks on superannuation contributions which are enticing people to invest befoer 30 June. The clearest evidence of this is the increase in the number of investment properties being put on the market and the proceeds invested in super.
This piece of news in itself would make one ask well what has that got to do with the forex rate. Well the most popular super investment is in a growth fund or balanced fund which invests in a range of assets including property, equities and fixed interest. Most of these type of funds invest in offshre equities which comprise 25% to 60% of the funds investments. Now last year Australia's foreign currency assets increased by AUD 56 billion, that includes assets other than super. But with this influx of money into super and a proporation going offshore unhedged it just provides another headwind for Aussie in its climb upwards.
In addition to that we have the possibility of Qantas and Coles, two major corporations falling prey to private equity buyers. About 45% of Qantas is foreign owned, most of that would be unhedged, Coles not sure but a large percentage nevertheless. If they get taken over the foreigners will probably sell their AUD's.
So despite USD looking like a a crock of **** AUD seems to have its own inherent problems.
i hope I've been able to give you some insight, but at the moment I'm not sure where it goes.

Bank Of America Goes Long AUD/JPY
[Dow Jones] This week's risk aversion episode will ultimately be regarded as limited so shift in currencies creates some opportunities, Bank of America strategists say. For example, AUD/JPY fell sharply despite likelihood BOJ won't hike again until at least August and despite Australia's economy clearly continuing to benefit from resources boom; recommends going long AUD/JPY at 93.20 with target of 97.60, stop loss on 2-day close below 92.30, lower end of upward channel of past year.
