PRESS RELEASE: S&P Reports Rise In Arrears On Australian Res. Mortgage Loans

The report, Australian RMBS Arrears Statistics, for the month ending Jan. 31, 2007, provides a comprehensive analysis of arrears statistics on loans underlying Australian RMBS. Residential mortgage loans funded through RMBS exceed A$146 billion, which is a substantial portion of the residential mortgage market in Australia.

The week ahead will be very important for near-term currency market trends and could also set the tone for the next few weeks as a whole.

The Japanese Tankan report is released on Monday local time and will be important in determining sentiment towards the Japanese economy with the yen much better placed to secure underlying capital inflows if there is a firm reading for the index.

This week is also the start of the new Japanese fiscal year when large Japanese funds make their investment decisions. Over the past year, low domestic interest rates have triggered substantial capital outflows from Japan in search of high yields. Retail interest in overseas funds is likely to remain strong, but the Japanese institutions may be less convinced and cut back their overseas weightings which would undermine the dollar. These reservations will increase if there is a strong reading for the Tankan index.

As far as the US economy is concerned, the US ISM index which is due for release on Monday, has been a key economic indicator over the next few months. A solid reading this month above a 52-53 range would ease market fears over the manufacturing sector while a figure near or below 50.0 would reinforce unease over the US economy. The employment and prices components will also be watched closely in the ISM index.

The US employment report is scheduled for release on Friday and the data will have a very important impact on inflation, growth expectations and the dollar. As far as the immediate reaction is concerned, the situation will be very unusual as most global markets are on holiday with Friday also an official holiday in the US, although the bond market will be open for an abbreviated session. This lack of liquidity could produce a very erratic and volatile reaction to the payroll data if it is some distance from market expectations. The US housing sector will also remain under close scrutiny during the week.

There are two important central bank interest rate decisions due with the Reserve Bank of Australia and Bank of England due to announce the rate decisions on Wednesday and Thursday respectively. Both banks will consider the possibility of a further increase in interest rates.

Comm Bank forecast retail sales +0.5% and building approvals +1.0% versus market consensus of 0.4% and 0.5% respectively. They've been pretty good forecasting Aussie data recently.
My forecasting hasn't been good recently but here goes. There's a double no touch and other options in place bettwen the figure and 25 thatn should keep a ceiling on Aussie today. Nonetheless if this data comes out on the high side it might encourage Aussie bulls and exporters to load up owing to a gradual increase in snetiment that Aussie will head towards 82 cents. Exporters, particularly are short having with others been caught by the rapid appreciation of the AUD over the last month. If it breaks then the move up from there will be rapid.
Downside limited because owing to the above so range on the day here in Asia 0.8075/00, certainly on this scenario insufficient return to warrant the risk in doing anything.

NZD/USD Needs To Go Below 0.71 To Hurt Bulls -BNZ

Support looking strong at 0.8060, tried to break that here and offshore Friday night, however, whenever it got close it rallied strongly back into the eighties.
Kiwi looks a bit heavy this morning, however, that one is able to rally without warning.
While Kiwi has retraced from 0.7210 to a low of 0.7088, Aussie hasn't done much.
Given such negative sentimernt on USD its hard to see any meaningful retracement from here for either one at least for today in Asia.
Whats your view if any?

AUD Suffering Bullish Exhaustion - Suncorp

Australian dollar appears to be suffering from bullish exhaustion as it struggles to make and sustain new highs above 0.8100 vs USD, says Suncorp Metway's currency strategist Peter Pontikis: AUD's failure to mount Friday's 11-year high suggests pair may struggle to sustain trading above 0.8100. Wednesday's RBA rate decision will be closely watched, though with a 4.25 cent AUD rally already having run its course on changing rate hike expectations, the story is already looking 'old.'

Heard it as well, but the move hasn't been finalized as to timing. OTOH, it may not be a huge deal, as reportedly some 60% of oil sales are in non-dollar currencies. LINK to a relevant FT article you may find of interest. FWIW, they still have to import gas, I wonder what currency they use for that...

Kaprikorn, always a pleasure.:
I just wonder though glancing at those charts if it doesnt also suggest that they (the noncomms) are also frequently wrong about the direction, while as you say the market is right since it is what it is.
It does seem useful in knowing whet their net stratagies are as players, but there are other players that will move the market wih their flows of demand/supply. These other players may or may not be correct depending on your time frame but their views need to be addressed ti get a better picture of the market expectations vs reality.

I was just thinking of our last conversation - and here u r..
true on what u just posted..

I was reading a lot on COT analysis and thought about how the information flows are distributed..
- we believe that big names like GS, ML etc have the best info - but small specs who "scalp" can't have this info.. so we try to trade using tech analysis and believe the market is right

-- however what caught my attn was in an article that was referring to COT strength - for example if Non-comm are net short GBP 3000 contracts while the net shorts are let' say 3500 - this means that there is a very strong consensus - ergo -- big specs have some info - which is either very good or they believe so very strongly...
.. so my idea was that while we can't buy the info the big ones have we have some clue trough the COT report (however a very lagging in time one..)

I just wanted to post regarding a comment made by UK Alex. In spite of Como, as I would not put myself in the scalper-group and since I usually am looking for short term trends (100pip+ moves) that align with my medium term view. My medium term view is that the volatility in markets is increasing because global risk assessments are being called into question.
From “America’s Bubble Economy”(Davis Weidemer et al. 2006):
“While it’s true that perceived value is the only value matters when buying or selling in a market place, it also true that, sooner or later, you cannot fool all the people all of the time.”
Indeed, it is the perceptions in the marketplace for forex that are being discussed on this forum. And they provide a ‘forum’ to engage in an attempt to assess these perceptual changes and their effect and influence on price direction and behavior.
If one believes, as I do, that there is a series of bubbles in the global economy that are potentially risky and potentially linked through international financial flows, the medium in which this will occur is through exchange rates. This has tremendous importance for flows and prices. You can still scalp these movements but some traders choose to understand these forces to better prepare for price action as well.
Which brings me to Alex’s comment regarding opinions on the forum:

“…there are two factors that make bubbles hard to see: 1]Esoteric economists (or techies) are often too busy dissecting the trees to notice that the forest is on fire; and 2] Any analysis by the financial community, both public and private, rarely amounts to more than a sales pitch. People, who have financial interests in making sure you continue to believe in the value of their assets, are often not the most reliable sources of accurate information.” But they are useful indicators of psychology. One contributor on this forum, for example, always contributes when the market pauses during a bout of dollar-yen weakness. Its usually a decision point for the market of speculators as to whether to hold their shorts or to cash in…And then when the market momentum slows in his favor he/she pops back on again. Ill have to research to see how good a contrary indicator he/she is.
gl in the new week.

Hey what series of comments seen here. For what this modernity has come to I do see long lines of desks and micro traders aka scalpers and brokers that like to call em traders talking about fundamental, news, market trends while not having any position lasting over 1 or 2 hours at most. This is a mental sickness imvho. If you trade so short term just don't think as there's nothing to think of.

Hello RF@,

I was following up the story I posted I think on Friday it was regarding Turkey's prime minister Recep T. Erdogan attempting to secure the relase of female UK army officer with Iranian counterparts.

It is a totally different story who should apologize for what.

I disagree with the way Iranians act, thinking the world is a closed society in which they set the stage behind the scene and officers apologize one after another.

We shall also hope to see in proof whether the UK government should too apologize for illegal border intrusion (or in that region starting to make the habit of it for that matter).

I wish you a good day.
