HOT TOPIC: Don't Get Carried Away
By Rosalind Mathieson


SINGAPORE (Dow Jones)--It has been a fairly robust 24 hours for the carry trade, but things may get a bit patchier as the week unfolds.

The Australian dollar and the British pound have led the way against both the U.S. dollar and the yen, in part as markets mull the likely outcome of central bank meetings this week. The Australian dollar hit a 10-year high of US$0.8181 overnight, for example, as bets on a Reserve Bank of Australia rate hike tomorrow have shifted to slightly above 50-50.

The New Zealand dollar has also been strong, while the U.S. dollar has held up against the yen despite some tepid U.S. data and the usual busload of worries including the subprime market, tensions with Iran and now a potential trade spat with China, on which the U.S. relies heavily to buy U.S. dollar assets.

But the carry trade may lose a bit of its luster - even just temporarily - later in the week.

The Australian dollar looks a tad over-stretched and at risk of a pullback if the RBA doesn't lift rates another 25 basis points early tomorrow.

The same goes for the pound, where gains are based on the fairly tenuous theory that the Bank of England has been prepared to surprise with rate hikes in the past and so could again this week.

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand is unlikely to lift rates as its next meeting on April 26 and could even point further to non-rate mechanisms to cool the economy and prices; RBC Capital Markets notes the recent rise in fixed mortgage rates in New Zealand could compel the RBNZ to hold off hiking further in this cycle.

The U.S. dollar is still getting some yield-related demand but the negatives are stacking up and it is approaching a big one in the form of payrolls data Friday. As this column has said before, payrolls prints need to err on the notably strong side to give the dollar much of a lift, and the risk is the data lead markets to renew expectations for a near-term Federal Reserve rate cut.

The point is not that the carry trade is substantially at risk. Neither is the point that the carry trade doesn't still have value - the rate gap between Japan and the rest of the world will remain wide. The RBA would be likely to act in May if it doesn't hike this month, for example.

Rather, the markets could just be coming due for another period of short-term (and modest) carry trade unwinding, which would then present a more attractive entry point to get back in.

Real data means no rate rise
THE 'experts' have given Reserve Bank governor Glenn Stevens permission to lift the official interest rate. The data has not.The graphs capture the reality. Retail sales are growing at a solid but not threatening pace. Approvals for private sector houses actually remain weak.

The 'head of steam' contention rests on a big jump in sales in the latest month. But that is all based on seasonal adjustment, at a very dodgy time.

While approvals saw a big jump in apartments. But coming back from a very depressed level.

It would be 'courageous' to base an interest rate hike on this sort of data, ahead of the real inflation figures later this month.

Can't see the trade figures making much difference.
I believe the major trading banks are split on whether we get a rate rise tomorrow. Given the sentiment in the market I think they will move.
Aussie continues to flex its muscles, last night in London the sell orders were quickly taken out there won't be much importer selling around today. With the trend very much in favour of a test of 82 cents beforehand and 82.50 thereafter the currency looks to go higher.
All the action in the high yielders with euro very quiet.

Rising NZ Mortgage Rates May Damp Hike Talk - RBC
Speculation that RBNZ has more tightening to do may be dampened by recent increases in NZ fixed mortgage rates, says RBC Capital Markets FX strategist Sue Trinh; thinks RBNZ may be compelled to hold off from hiking rates further this cycle if mortgage rate increases are sustained. "In this context, the 72% chance of a 25 bps RBNZ hike by June 7 seems a bit rich." RBNZ, which hiked cash rate by 25 bps last month, next reviews policy Apr. 26.

...I haven't posted for some time...coffee business, construction, antique car restoration...here's my take on long term shorting USD summed up by this article. Says that sub-prime lenders (specializing in bad or iffy credit clients)are first to go as USA housing market finally wans...& they are shakey now. Quotes from that link as "We suspect the problem in the sub-prime area is just the tip of the iceberg for the mortgage market as a whole " (David Shulman, U. of Ca. Anderson Report) and "Sub-prime lenders, who target customers with poor credit histories, have suffered from a downturn in the market." My "theory" (idea) is that Fed won't have to hike interest any longer eyeing this sort of breaking action, meaning end to long termlong USD trades. Again, looking only at long term...I am not-never short term/swing trader. Closed minor AU long for profits a week ago..on year chart mid cycle...won't position til support line hits. Best of luck, Chuck

Its hard not to be critical when members come out with statements like:
"I regard “price stability” as zero inflation, properly measured. What does “properly measured” mean? Price indexes have biases of various sorts and experts generally believe that U.S. indexes overstate inflation by a modest amount."
[really who?]
"I myself make a rough guess that, for example, the Consumer Price Index overstates inflation by about one percentage point a year."
[Ok, now pull the other one.]
"Over the past decade or so, the Fed has gravitated to the position of placing primary emphasis on the core rate of inflation, as measured by the PCE price index excluding food and energy."
[How convenient.]
"I am perfectly happy to state my personal inflation objective as an inflation rate measured by the core PCE price index of 1.5 percent, plus or minus 0.5 percent."
[Well, if you keep changing the definition to exclude ‘volatile’ components then sure you can 'happily' make it look like whatever you want.]
Really it’s sad. But at least they got one thing right. ‘Synching:’ the psychological alignment of market and fed wishful thinking. Im not bashing the fed i trully feel sorry for them being stuck in this mess and having to resort to some sorry jaw-boning to make up for trully appalling Government fiscal policy.

In the script of the Goldilocks story, she ran away when the bears returned. The FED is trying a revisionist version in which heroine Goldilocks chases the bears the away. Right, and it never rains in America.

PAR: you must be filthy rich becuase i certainly couldnt live on the interest differential offered by USD vs JPY over a year. So i guess i would have to leverage that 'one-way' bet of yours. Oh, but wait, if i leverage it, then i run a greater risk of losing money if flows go in the other direction...and the yen appreciates...hmm then i might have to unwind or some-thing

Van jv / What POOLE is doing is feeding more fog to a market that may be starting to see clarity: namely that the economy is vulnerable to a R ecession.

The FED is trying to mitigate the consequences of past liberal money supply flood by trying to obfuscate (Poole is saying clarify) the meaning of "inflation", namely the fact that prices are blowing the roof everywhere, regardless of how they are measured.

IF he is trying to sound hawkish maybe it is in responce to Chinese yikyak of not accumulating any more of the US fiat, before the smoke turns to a fire. Coz IF the dollar bears start to run out of a burning forest, they will eat Goldilocks for lunch.

good point re: mkt being sht USD going into the numbers. consider 1). ISM is pretty volatile and 2). it is following a raft of decent/poor numbers plus the pre-holiday issues and reactions were apt to be somewhat muted.

I am NOT a USD bull but when post after post on this side and >>>> side of GV are looking for extended moves higher in virtually every USD cross, and in addition the majority of analysts and mkt "strategists" are on the same $-ve one has to pause before being overly aggressive on the short side, particularly since we are nowhere near key bottoms in most pairs and the recent run of UK, EU and JPN reports have not been overwhelming glowing, despite all the crank from various and sundry ECB talking heads re: EZ growth. FRA, ESP, ITA are NOT participating in the so called "boom" the GER is supposedly undergoing.

Just IMO of course.

Who's winning, and who will lose in subprime shakeout

Rosner's theory is that hedge funds hold a lot of the lowest-rated bits of subprime MBS and CDOs, called the equity tranches. Pension funds and insurers probably hold the less risky, senior tranches because rules restrict them from investing in lower-rated securities, he added.
Still, many CDOs bought the lower-rated bits of subprime MBS, so Rosner is concerned that rising losses from mortgage defaults and foreclosures could even eat their way up into the investment-grade tranches of CDOs.
Pension funds and insurers may also have invested in hedge funds that hold the riskier CDO tranches, Rosner and Mason said.
"There is a real risk that a lot of these assets are held by unsuspecting end holders like pension plans," Rosner said.

I was just looking at the DOW :

Break of 12280 , will test the next support at 12176 , then nothing much till 11400...This could lead to another wave of US$ weakness , all in all , the US$ is not out of the woods..Even though i am long $ for the current time.
Have to say , this US$ better go long very soon, otherwise i m going to fold and go short US$ once again, last week things were going fine, till friday news ..
On the open of the day , i thought there would be a stop run , as it usually does that on the monday following a big friday, but a break HIGHER than 1.34 , and GBP 1.9820 would definitely give me the willies , and force me to scratch the trades , and look the other way.

All in all , i hate being against the trend, which i am at the moment doing , as the trend is for the moment without question a continuation of the multi year dollar devaluation.

The ISM manufacturing index decreased to a reading of 50.9 in March from 52.3 in Feb. New orders were 51.6 versus 54.9, production was 53.0 vs 54.1 and employment was 48.7 compared to 51.1 in Feb. Prices paid rose to 65.5 from 59.0. On the whole, the index depicts a factory sector that is growing, but at a somewhat weaker pace than in Feb with rising price pressures.

long term wise it really need to establish a swift move to the upside , a trend change , cause it does seem i took profit too early last week on the $ shorts, as it just keeps going and going ..
Last friday all my positions got stopped most at entries , some with stops , i am going short again that gbp , ozi..I know perfectly them making new high's is not particularly bullish for the US$.

However if i can't get some pips by going short 1.9793 , OZI 8175, within a one week time frame , then something is definitely very wrong with the us$ , I'll bag the ideas , and go short us$.

It is still possible of course that you will get to 1.3325 before the (i suspect succesful) test of the 1.3390-9 area. I just think its done correcting thats all. But I do hope you are right (only problem the last lopw of this correction was at 1.3331 which was the .618 retrace of the move. That failed to break and though it may be tested again it will have trouble breaking to the 10 extra pips you are looking for. Thats all. please dont take this as criticism of your trade, I am just cautioning from another perspective.

Sarkozy To Push For Weaker Euro If Elected French Pres
French presidential candidate Nicolas Sarkozy, who is topping the polls 20 days before the first round of the presidential election, Monday pledged to push for a weaker euro to counter other currencies' "monetary dumping." He said the U.S., China, Japan and the U.K. are indulging in competitive devaluation, and urged the euro zone to adopt a common economic policy. If elected and he pushes his proposals through, Sarkozy is likely to face opposition from Germany.

The German Chancellor Angela "Merkel would be very, very worried if France seriously tried to rein in the ECB," said Anthony Thomas, an economist at Dresdner Kleinwort in London. "As much as it's the whipping boy of French politicians, the ECB is seen in Germany as the bulk against inflation."

April 2 (Bloomberg) -- Sales of bonds backed by subprime mortgages are tumbling as investors and bankers, concerned about rising delinquency rates, pull back from what had been one of Wall Street's fastest growing businesses.

About $64.8 billion of securities backed mainly by loans to people with poor credit or high amounts of debt were issued this year through March 22, down 36 percent from $100.9 billion in the same period last year, according to Citigroup Inc.

EUR Has Discounted Another Rate Hike
LONDON (Dow Jones)--The euro appears set to remain range-bound despite the latest batch of strong euro-zone data.

Rather than translate into expectations of higher euro-zone interest rates, as inflation pressures rise, the data is seen simply confirming only one more rate hike.

After that, analysts reckon inflation pressures will subside and growth prospects will slow, ensuring there is little reason to push interest rates, or for that matter the single currency, any higher.

Carol Hainaut, a euro-zone economist with IXIS Corporate and Investment Bank in Paris, expects a "a major correction" in the euro-zone economy during the next few months, with signs of a deceleration already evident in the construction sector.

She said despite the recent uptick in euro-zone inflation, to 1.9% in February from 1.8% in January, there is little reason to expect it to rise over the European Central Bank's 2.0% target in the short run.

Hainaut pointed to the recent strength of the euro itself, and the fact it is likely to remain stable in months to come; the likelihood of limited gains in oil prices later this year; signs of moderate German wage negotiations; as well as the prospect of an economic slowdown as all reasons why the ECB may raise rates another 25 basis points to 4.0% but no further.

In my humble opinion;

This week, both USD/JPY and EUR/JPY are testing lower. But USD/JPY should trade lower than EUR/JPY because of USD index slide.

The time is running out and dollar weakness can return unexpectedly... as the long-term downward trend regains control of the situation. This may even occur today or tomorrow. In any case short term volatility is expected by the AS.

Still holding average short USD/JPY @ 117.80
and EUR/JPY @ 157.40

If they don't then the real money will just wait for publication of the CPI later this month. While I agree there will be a fall it won't be sufficient to take it below 80 cents from this level anyway.
Given Aussie has pushed up 4 big figures in a month that move is the equivalent to more than 25 bp increase, so onits own that does not warrant an increase.

To be honest i don't have an opinion. Think Aussie goes higher now against USD. .8250 a likely target, although I hold the same opinion as earlier that it is unsustainable. The flows very much favour AussieI've looked for retracement since we broke 80 cents touched 81 then fell back to 0.8060. It just doesn't look like it at the moment.
FWIW CBA analyst Richard Grace calls for a break 100. Another thing he said last week is that first week in April for eight of the last ten years Aussie has appreciated against JPY.
Looks like it might make it again.

IMM Commitment of Traders - USD net shorts highest since Dec 06
The latest IMM weekly data shows speculative shorts rising 125.9K from 81K contracts to reach the highest level of short positioning since December 2006
Increase was mainly due to the Aud long and a cline in CAD shorts while the sentiment to carry funding currencies emails broadly unchanged..
Euro net longs rose slighty due to a combination of a softer tone from the FOMC and continued hawkish singnals from the ECB and are now within reach of record highs, as long exposure remains heavy. Aud net longs saw a 4th consecutive rise underscoring the ocntinued preference for yield and RBA expectations. This suggest that the speculative market appears somewhat vulnerable to the possible no change decision from the RBA.

Quite a long period of compression for AUD/NZD which at some stage might resolve with gusto.
My individual sentiments on the Australasians (kangaroo brethren if you like heheh) indicate a decoupling at some stage with 1400 and 1200 being the break through points. I suspect upwards.

Figures out today show the number of building approvals for new houses has continued to fall.

The Bureau of Statistics says there was a 1.4 per cent drop in the number of approvals from January to February this year.

The number of house-building approvals has now declined 3.2 per cent over the last year.
Private-sector house approvals fell a seasonally adjusted 0.3% from a month earlier and fell 5.1% from a year earlier.

China plans to buy $12.5 billion in goods from U.S. in May ($10 billion in mechanical, electronic goods, $2 billion in soybeans, $500 million cotton), person familiar with plans tells Dow Jones; China has in recent years sent trade mission to U.S. annually and last year's purchases were about $16.2 billion, based on local media estimates. Total price tag not unusual, suggests it is business as usual in wake of U.S. decision Friday to put import duties on China paper products; Beijing could yet decide to reduce amount or cancel purchases entirely if trade spat worsens but most would view this as unlikely given US-Sino economic relationship too important to run aground. Besides, in such purchases Beijing is showing its efforts to curb trade surplus with U.S. Final purchasing plan may be announced at next U.S.-Sino talks to be held in Washington in May

Building starts up strongly

April 02, 2007

A STRONG rise in building approvals is not a sign of recovery in the housing sector and should not be seen as a green light to raise interest rates, economists said today.
Australian building approvals rose 10.6 per cent to 13,418 unit in February on a seasonally adjusted basis, from a downwardly revised 12,136 units in January, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said.

In the year to February, building approvals rosel 10 per cent.

Housing Industry Association executive director for housing and economics Simon Tennent said the strong rise was more likely the product of apartments finally getting approval after months of delays at the local government level.

"It's a welcome boost to the medium and high density sector, which is under a lot of pressure as the rental markets are tight," he said.

"But we're concerned at the continuing falls in house building."

More healthy building approval figures in coming months would be needed to show a recovery in the housing sector, Mr Tennent said.

"I don't think this is the green light for interest rates to go up.

"Home affordability is suffering on the back of higher interest rates and high land prices – today's numbers confirm that still is the case."

Mr Tennent said the apartment sector was not particularly strong adding that the strong growth came after several months of backlog in getting council approval.

Hi from another Wellingtonian.

When it comes to cutting loosers, the answers depend a lot on the situation - what percentage of capital are you using; what was your initial target/timeframe for the trade; Has anything changed? Then of course there are psychological questions like is the trade affecting your judgement to trade rationally?

If you can answer these questions, then it should be clear what to do.

What's the big deal? Market views change with new info.-The reality of chasing a moving target. If that is too confusing then best to chase after something stationary- like a bus stop.

for all friends here especially london jon,all posts are buyer beware.all the fine print is a must read.

My intention is not to offer any form of investment or trading advice whatsoever. The posts I have made earlier could easily fail miserably at any point. If you choose to follow the posts be aware that you do so entirely at your own risk.

China Likely Restrained On US Duties Move - Credit Suisse CS

U.S. move to put import duties on China paper goods is likely more a political gesture than prelude to all out trade war, says Credit Suisse; "it should be seen as another prong in the Bush Administration's multi-facet strategy to try and pressure and lure China's cooperation to appreciate its currency and lower its trade surplus with the U.S., in our view." Duties imposed on coated free sheet paper but not directly on other more important products like steel, textiles, means Washington wants to avoid serious impact on existing bilateral trade; China's response to far "is very mild and refrained. We believe Beijing is more interested in seeking a quick resolution than an escalation."

Yes agreed contradictory posts are confusing to many so best to wait until one is more sure before posting.

Lets not forget that the end of one fiscal year is the start of the next. Some companies in Japan may wanted to pad the income statement for this year on the assumption that yen will gain strength over the next fiscal year. imho

TOKYO (Kyodo)--A tsunami may occur in the Pacific Ocean as an earthquake registering a preliminary magnitude of 8.1 occurred around Bougainville Island or the Solomon Islands on Monday morning Japan time, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

The weather agency is looking into the possibility of tidal waves hitting the Japanese archipelago after the quake at 5:40 a.m. Japan time. The information on the focus of the quake is based on data from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, the agency said.

The U.S. Geological Survey set the magnitude of the same quake at 7.6. The U.S. agency says the focus of the quake is about 10 kilometers below the surface of the ocean some 348 kilometers west-northwest of the Solomon Islands capital of Honiara.
