ACC. I wonder if you may care to reply to a question I posed on the futures forum?

Sydney ACC 23:57 GMT April 3, 2007 Reply   
Prospects strong for a rate rise remaining strong for next month should serve to underpin Aussie, nevertheless it should remian capped at 0.8180 until then. USD strating to show some muscle so AUD should pullback somewhat.
Given the amount of offshore flows into AUD over the last month I'd wait for the response tonight to get a clearer picture.

Aussie strongly overbought possibly in a directional change of momentum. a drop will give the added risk of turning into a major decline, with break of 8025 increasing the odds confirming the view.

Carry Trades May Slacken Pre-G7 - BBH

While FX carry trades may draw attention as market prepares for long Easter break, G7/IMF meetings slated for end of next week may see interest slacken after holiday, says Brown Brothers Harriman. "Pundits will quickly ask what the G7/IMF have done recently and as far as new initiatives in the currency markets go, little fresh action has been seen"; still, market knows too well it need not take actions to stir market - "remember last April when the G7/IMF seemed to argue currencies needed to do more to correct the global imbalances. Remember the volatility that ensued?" Adds in February, before G7 last met, expressions of concern about yen weakness helped trigger significant, though brief, market moves; "the G7 cautioned not to view the yen as a one-way bet. Given foreign investors bought about 60 billion dollars worth of Japanese assets this year, the G7 needs to fine tune its message, if it really has one, to be more meaningful to the market

Australian Dlr Technically Overbought - Suncorp

AUD/USD eases overnight, leaving it trading in 0.8125 area of a week ago, and looks likely to ease further regardless of RBA decision this morning, says Peter Pontikis, currency strategist at Suncorp Metway. At over 0.8160, AUD/USD looks technically overbought and due for retracement down to sub-0.8100 level. Dip could well extend beyond that, possibly as far as March 0.7960 lows.

AUD, NZD Won't Gain Much Even If RBA Hikes- ANZ

NZD/USD, AUD/USD unlikely to gain much even if RBA hikes by 25 bps to 6.50% at review due 2330 GMT, says ANZ Bank, with market currently "very long AUD". If RBA doesn't hike, AUD should "easily fall through support at 0.8110", while NZD will likely test support at 0.7150. Adds that despite a couple of small Uridashi issuances overnight, yesterday's push above 0.7200 on re-entry into carry trade positions "built on thin ice" with selling interest at 0.7250 capping topside for now. Expects Kiwi to test support at 0.7170 even if RBA hikes, with 0.7150-0.7120 range eyed for local session. Pair last 0.7198, AUD/USD 0.8131

17:58 USD/JPY: Pressing Highs as US Bond Yields Rally San Francisco, April 3. USD/JPY is again pressing session highs around 118.89 with impetus from the triple digit gains in the DJIA coupled with the rise in US bond yields. US ten- year bonds have touched 4.67%, just shy of March highs of 4.672% and helping to bolster the USD. The last time yields were this high in February is when USD/JPY was trading above 120.00. USD/JPY is attempting to trigger barrier options at 118.95 and 119.00, which if breached target gains to 119.50. Rhonda.Staskow

16:51 NZD/USD: Kiwi Losing Traction; Approaching Overnight Lows San Francisco, April 3. NZD/USD is easing this afternoon, dropping to 0.7193/03 and approaching the overnight lows of 0.7192. Despite the retreat, there is little enthusiasm amongst the traders for this move lower and they see little behind the flow. The NZD has lost ground on the crosses too with NZD/JPY at 85.50, down from 85.70 this morning with AUD/NZD recovering to 1.1295 from 1.1270/75 earlier today. Some USD strength is seen weighing on NZD with triple digit gains on the DJIA today and with US bond yields firmer over the session but carry trade demand continues to offset some of the impact of more positive USD fundamentals. 0.7175 is support followed by 0.7160.

17:04 USD/JPY: Off Highs But Still Bid; Option Demand Noted San Francisco, April 3. USD/JPY remains bid at 118.83 but off session highs and trader interest remains lethargic at best. NY names including investment houses and banks as well as custodial names have all been good buyers in the move up to 118.87. There is unconfirmed talk of demand for a string of topside USD/JPY option strikes for one year or longer though so far, the demand has not been reflected in option prices. Dealers are cautious though wondering if the market is now betting on JPY weakness accelerating beyond the current target of 120.00 particularly with BOJ rate hike intentions seen on hiatus until after the Japanese Upper House elections in July. Offers and option protection remain ahead of 119.00 with stops above. Rhonda.Staskow

USA BAY 17:24 GMT April 3, 2007 Reply   
15:28 EUR/JPY: Yield Spreads Fuelling Cross San Francisco, April 3. Fresh new fiscal year investment trust launches continues to fuel JPY cross demand with a widening EUR bund yield spread to JGBs also underpinning EUR/JPY. The two-year spread is at 322 bp today, up from 314 bp a week ago, 301 bp a month ago and 257 bp a year ago. Expectations that the BOJ could keep rates steady until August or September is helping to fuel carry trade demand with another rate rise by the ECB likely over that period. The cross is at 158.75/80 with a high of 158.85 seen so far. There remain offers ahead of 159.00 including reports of option defense of 159.00 with more barrier options at 160.00. A break higher in USD/JPY above 119.00 would easily fuel a similar rally in EUR/JPY through 159.00. Some analysts are now forecasting gains in the cross above 160.00 to 163.00. Rhonda.Staskow

I believe that the 8180 cap will hold strong. I have my stops above that, with most of the markets i believe. With small targets. The 8210 level will be another one to watch out for should we go up. Remembering that the market has priced in a raise already with 79% chance being the prediction. The AUD is very overvalued right now, and has had little/no retracement from the 7600 levels..

I want short targets 7985 7960 7910 7900 but I have my first target at 8030.. I don't believe in a move down then a bounce up. I would say it will be 2-3 days of profit taking in my eyes.

Zeus// I see your point. ADP is unlikely to cause a jolt on Wednesday, but I suppose some may use it as a yardstick for Friday's payrolls. ISM Services is the key report and it has the potential to cause a sell-off in equity markets if the outlook for growth weakens again.

United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is in Syria, leading a congressional delegation on a trip that the White House has said could send the wrong signal to a state it says sponsors terrorists.

Pelosi, who was met at Damascus airport by Syria's foreign minister, is the highest-ranking American politician to visit Syria since relations began to deteriorate in 2003.

Pelosi, a Democrat from California is scheduled to meet President Bashar Assad and other Syrian officials on Wednesday.

Earlier Tuesday, Pelosi held talks with Mahmoud Abbas in his headquarters in the West Bank city of Ramallah, where the Palestinian president told her he wanted to use his meetings with the Israeli prime minister as an avenue for restarting peace talks.

Credit Ratings Agency Standard & Poor's Corp.

Signs of stress are emerging in the U.K.'s subprime home loan sector, while higher interest rates are likely to slow house price growth in the latter part of this yearS&P said the extent of the problems in what it termed the U.K.'s "non-conforming" mortgage market weren't as severe as those in the U.S. at present. "Nevertheless, overall arrears and repossession rates in the U.K. non-conforming sector are on the increase," the report said. "Looking forward, we expect a continued slow deterioration in arrears in the short term, as recent rate rises work their way through." Jitters about the U.S. subprime mortgage market, alongside slowing growth in the world's largest economy, have caused substantial volatility in global financial markets in recent weeks. The U.K. housing market, where prices have risen consistently for a decade or more, has been closely watched for any signs of similar problems at its margins. "We would expect house price growth and mortgage lending to decelerate more markedly from the second half of the year," S&P said, adding that its outlook for the U.K. housing market is "cautious."
S&P's comments on the U.K. formed part of an overall review of the residential housing sector in Europe. The agency said house prices across Europe have started to cool as a result of central bank rate hikes over the past year to 18 months. But it added that strong economic conditions across the continent would mean housing markets "will largely avoid a hard landing." But S&P warned that the impact of a downturn in the Spanish housing market could have severe consequences for the country's economy because of the large share of gross domestic product contributed by the construction sector. "A market downturn, rather than a slowdown, precipitated by high interest rates would present serious risks for the Spanish economy as a whole," S&P said. "We consider the red-hot and unbalanced construction sector to be a major risk to the economy as a whole."

G7 May Warn Vs Yen-Carry Trades Again

Sakakibara said that while G7 representatives may skirt around the yen's value, they will likely repeat their warning made in February about yen-carry trades, a risky investment strategy that many analysts blame for the yen's persistent weakness.

"The markets are continuing carry trades," he said. "There's no question that the yen is abnormally weak."

For example, the euro's "fair value" against the yen is Y110.00 to Y115.00 based on Japan's trade competitiveness and other factors, said Sakakibara. That is well below the common European currency's current level of Y158.34.

As for the dollar-yen exchange rate, he said that given Japan's international competitiveness, the country's manufacturers "can easily live with rates of around Y100.00 to Y110.00."

"For the time being", however, the greenback will hug a range of Y115.00 to Y120.00, underpinned by Japanese investors' appetite for overseas assets that pay higher returns than those at home, he said.

At 1000 GMT Tuesday, the dollar was quoted at Y118.60.



Sakakibara said the Bank of Japan may increase interest rates in May because the country's economy is in its "best condition", growing at a price-adjusted annual pace of around 2.5% while prices are stable.

"I think a May rate hike is possible," he said.
"The markets have been wrong recently," forecasting a rate hike in January, when the bank stayed put, while anticipating no tightening in February, when the bank lifted rates by a quarter percentage point to 0.50%, he said. "It may be wise not to put your faith on the markets."

Sakakibara himself urged the BOJ to "normalize" Japan's "unusually low interest rates" and stop fueling yen-carry trades by pumping money into the world's money markets.

"There're various opinions (on what levels constitute normal policy rates in Japan), but ... they may be around 2.0%," he said. The U.S. policy rate is 5.25%, while the rate in Europe is 3.75%, "but growth rates of the U.S. economy and the European economy are almost the same as Japan's."
"It doesn't make sense for Japanese real interest rates to stay near zero."

Sophia Kaprikorn, Hi:
Stop and reverse are great for these situations ie; the price either surges higher on a critical break or surges lower if the critical line holds to 'break-out' of the triangle. I didnt want to try this becuase 1) am still psychologically geared against the dollar and 2) am going to Beirut on vacation tommorrow and don't want to be tied to a screen when i am there.
It also takes some guts to use automatic triggers like this. But if you were going to then that was a good time...
Yes symetrical triangles may be continuation patterns but of what trend? I couldnt tell there was one while it was being made. Maybe I wasn't looking hard enough.

hi, I was yesterday looking at the hourly USDJPY and saw the triangle you are referring to.. I try to study patterns so a Symmetrical Triangle that it's resembling mostly to should be a continuation pattern..

however, please let me ask you this question more in light of Money Mgmt as it is my greatest problem:
you set SL of 15 pips - well if you see it breaching the SL - thus confirming the breakout scenario - why not Reverse the trade?
I have this idea and just ask you for consultation - I even think when these breakouts happen - that when I was wrong I can reverse at the breakout point while also doubling the position since then the ST trend is clear ...

Looking For M&A Flows For JPY
The JPY could be set for an M&A bonanza. Removal of restrictions on triangular mergers, (in which the acquiring corporation uses a subsidiary for the takeover), by Japan in May will make it easier for foreign companies to purchase Japanese ones, notes UBS. And, the bank says, with Japanese companies having attractive valuations, strong cash balances and providing an indirect play on the rising real estate market, they make attractive take over targets. "As such, the changes may mark a structural shift in the amount of foreign investment in Japan, thereby helping to boost the JPY," the bank says

May be old news, but...

UK PRESS: A failed American attempt to abduct two senior Iranian security officers on an official visit to northern Iraq was the starting pistol for events that led to Iranians seizing 15 British sailors and Marines, The Independent says. Early on the morning of 11 January, helicopter-born US forces launched a surprise raid on a long-established Iranian liaison office in the city of Arbil in Iraqi Kurdistan. They captured five relatively junior Iranian officials whom the US accuses of being intelligence agents and still holds. In reality the US attack had a far more ambitious objective, The Independent said it has learned. The aim of the raid, launched without informing the Kurdish authorities, was to seize two men at the very heart of the Iranian security establishment. The two senior Iranian officers the US sought to capture were Mohammed Jafari, the powerful deputy head of the Iranian National Security Council, and General Minojahar Frouzanda, the chief of intelligence of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, according to Kurdish officials, the report says.

SYDNEY (Dow Jones)--The Australian dollar fluctuated in Asia trading ahead of a line-ball decision on interest rates Wednesday, hovering around the US$0.8150 level.

Economists are evenly split on the likelihood of a rate hike by the Reserve Bank of Australia at 2330 GMT Wednesday. Traders said a lack of solid conviction in the market surrounding the RBA's verdict encouraged sellers through the session.

"The Aussie has had a pretty sound run up (in recent weeks), so there is room to take profits," said Sue Trinh, currency strategist at RBC Capital Markets.
"If the RBA board is sufficiently anxious about the inflation outlook to believe that a tightening some time in the next few months is justified, this week's board meeting is the only open window," said Stephen Walters, chief economist at JP Morgan.

Walters expects the RBA will not raise rates on Wednesday, but admits the decision is almost too close to call.

Concerns about the U.S. economy could be the factor that prompts them to keep rates steady.

Fed's Poole (Mon NY PM) said economy on sound footing, inflation retreating. Business spending weaker than Fed expected but would not push for rate cut if economy marginally weak. In inflation rises, could favour rate boost. Last Fed statement not completely successful.

Apr crude oil, $65.94, +$0.07 in NY, -0.23 to 65.71 in Asia

Generally quiet session in Asia after more late-US session/early APAC day buying interest in AUD and NZD from the usual (model/momentum) players.

Early pm flurry of selling interest in yen coming mostly from Japanese retail accounts, some said to be in very large size. Infamous 'East European' account selling of GBP/JPY the other notable flow. NZD/USD quickly repelled from 0.7250 (high 0.7240) lending credence to talk of sizeable option barrier here (unsubstantiated rumours of Chinese ownership). Talk of 1.9800 barriers on cable, 0.8200 on AUD/USD.

Canadian FinMin Flaherty says yen could be a topic for discussion at G7, scheduled for Friday April 13th in Washington. But Japanese FinMin Omi says G7 topics not decided yet and says 'didn't see much possibility of such talks'.

Australia Feb trade deficit -$838mn vs. -1,200mn expected, with exports and imports both up 2%, latter driven by 4.9% rise in consumer goods, further hardening expectations for RBA rate rise to be announced Wednesday. Interbank futures off further 1 tick this morning, mkt now 70% prices for rise up from 65% Monday.

Australian Treasurer Costello refuses to comment on prospect for rate rise.

Nikkei and JGBs:Nikkei rallies 1.21% reversing Monday's big late session sell-off. Keeps JGBs market on the defensive, though robust 10yr JGB auction (first of new fiscal year) with 3.13 bid-cover sees small post-auction rally. Futures -0.06 to 134.19.

Agreed, but there has to be an end to these runs up on all pairs. AUD is definently overvalued, and I think a rate rise will just dig a deeper hole into the housing market.

U.S. automaker General Motors Corp. (GM) maintained its strong sales growth in China, posting a 25% increase in first-quarter sales compared with a year earlier.

GM said in a statement Tuesday it sold 291,588 vehicles in China in the January-March period, with sales particularly strong in March. The automaker sold 100,538 vehicles last month, helping to bring GM's first-quarter market share in China to an estimated 13.9%, it said.

Japan will remove restrictions on triangular mergers in May which will make it easier for foreign companies to buy Japanese companies, notes UBS; move will let foreign firms use their Japanese subsidiaries to take over local entities through stock swaps. Japanese companies viewed as having attractive valuations, generally cash rich, making them attractive targets. Says "changes may mark a structural shift in the amount of foreign investment in Japan, thereby helping to boost the yen."

Sydney ACC 01:45 GMT not really mortgages are a fact of life and still not what they were in the 90s , feel the BOE has been holding off too long the rates there should be at least 6% problem is over there if you watch the lifestyle programes on Sky many have Overseas properties with Euro Mortgages as well so it will be a double whamming

courtesy London 23:24 GMT
A key problem could be a loss of appetite among foreign buyers. About 180,000 British people own holiday homes in France, and one in 20 sales in the country last year was conducted with a foreigner – double the proportion in 1998.

If price rises in Europe’s holiday home hotspots are slowing down, it could be an indicator that the UK's appetite for housing is also on the wane - perhaps because our own property market is eating up so much of our resources, or because the speculators have now moved onto other, riskier territories, such as Eastern Europe.

One thing's for sure - the European Central Bank isn't thinking about ending its rate-rising cycle any time soon - so we can expect more discomfort, to say the least, in European housing over the coming year.

I heard a report today stating Japan experienced deflation again in Feb. It sure would be nice if ALL the reporters and Fed's men could not give their opinions for a day. This is certainly a circus of a market. For those without a deocoder ring look at the monthly close of the USD Index. Then look at the monthly close of Gold. There is only one way to read a book and that is by putting the words together to make a sentence. I am sitting back with a smile and wondering how long these games will last. Whether a clear break up (short covering) or destiny down with the buck. Lets get it on. Good luck all.
