Purk 20:14, dlrcad (and some of its crosses) is one of the more technicaly responsive pairs you will trade. On the other side of the scale is the japanmafia-insider yen and some of its cross pair(s).

Agree JP. I tried to be careful here and explain that I was position building like building blocks- not chasing a bad trade etc. Big difference for me as I build into AUD/USD and USD/CAD positions long and short but have usually posted the hellfire laser strikes on GBP/USD, EUR/USD and yen crosses etc. which are done with with laser precision win or lose as "trades" not "positions".

Now positions are often massaged until the building blocks all fit correctly. Once done if it looks like that tower in Pisa must blow out of it before a collapse and rebuid etc until the structure looks good and the mason has his eye over it.

cheers and good w/e

NORWAY man.

Yes i have a msn thingy, and i would be honoured if you drop me an e-mail...
Sailor? Wow would love to hear your stories. Whisky? Oops, but than you must taste our JENEVER.

USD/CAD is very difficult to trade, i have been taught a few lessons here, and maybe i will make the money back that i lost in the last 3 years. I remember trying to long it all the way from 127 to 109.
Had possies from 10933-10968 and 11011. Bailed out at 11050. But also had possies at 11640 than dropped all the way to 111, took my s/l and went to 113...

Zeus, the point... is in not so much of making pips as not losing (m)any.

A classic demonstration of "exponential heat" inducing "Have plenty of ammo left to chase it lower- much lower if needed" battleplan I would qualify more as exponential heat-induced hallucination trading tactic, altho admittedly with some skill. This week GoF let you off on a get out of jail pass.

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish, and the tyranny of evil men.
Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children.
And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger, those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers.

Hey guys.

The dollar received some reprieve this afternoon when the Labor Department announced that producer prices rose at an annual rate of 3.2% in March, above the consensus of around 3.0%. We remain bearish the dollar, both in the short and median term. The only possible USD long position we would consider is long USD-JPY. Let’s have a look:

Medium term trend: +2 (Moderately Bullish)
Short term momentum: 0 (Neutral)

120.36 Upside Exhaustion
119.55 Daily High
119.35 Second Daily Resistance
119.34 Upside Trigger
119.18 Current Level
118.83 First Daily Resistance
118.65 Downside Trigger
118.20 Daily Low
117.99 First Daily Support
117.67 Second Daily Support
117.63 Downside Exhaustion

Strategy: USD-JPY has already exceeded what we considered to be resistance on the day. Our preference at this point would be to buy dips towards 118.65, with stops below 117.67.

I mentioned earlier that there is a continue of rising after us data ,then will decline.
as there is no reaction after data ,there are no rise.

Here is a travel guide I came across for those planning to visit France this summer.It being Friday eve,I thought it would be ok to post it:

The following advisory for American travelers heading for France was compiled from information provided by the US State Department, the Central Intelligence Agency, the US Chamber of Commerce, the Food and Drug Administration, the Center for Disease Control and some very expensive spy satellites the French don't know about.

It is intended as a guide for American travelers only. No guarantee of accuracy is ensured or intended.

General Overview

France is a medium-sized foreign country situated in the continent of Europe. It is an important member of the world community, though not nearly as important as it thinks.

It is bounded by Germany, Spain, Switzerland and some smaller nations of no particular consequence and with not very good shopping.

France is a very old country with many treasures such as the Louvre and Eurodisney. Among its contributions to Western civilization are Champagne, Camembert cheese and the guillotine.

Although France likes to think of itself as a modern nation, air-conditioning is little used and it is next to impossible to get decent Mexican food. One continuing exasperation for American visitors is that the people willfully persist in speaking French, though many will speak will shout English if shouted at. As in any foreign country, watch your change at all times.

The People

France has a population of 54 million people, most of whom drink and smoke a great deal, drive like lunatics, are dangerously oversexed and have no concept of standing in line. The French are in general gloomy, temperamental, proud, aloof, arrogant and undisciplined; and these are their good points.

Most French citizens are Roman Catholics, though you would hardly guess it by their behavior.

Many people are communists and topless bathing is common.

Men sometimes have girls' names like Marie, and they kiss each other when they hand out medals.

American travelers are advised to travel in groups and to wear baseball caps and colorful trousers for easier mutual recognition.

Safety

In general, France is a safe destination, though travelers are advised from time to time the country is invaded by Germany. By tradition, the French surrender more or less at once and, apart from a temporary shortage of Scotch whisky and increased difficulty in getting baseball scores and stock market prices, life for the visitor generally goes on much as before.

A tunnel connecting France to Britain beneath the English Channel has been opened in recent years to make it easier for the French government to flee to London.

History

France was discovered by Charlemagne in the Dark Ages. Other important historical figures are Louis XIV, the Huguenots, Joan of Arc, Jacques Cousteau and Charles de Gaulle, who was President for many years and is now an airport.

Government

The French form of government is democratic but noisy. Elections are held more or less continuously, and always result in a run-off.

For administrative purposes, the country is divided into regions, departments, districts municipalities, cantons, communes, villages, cafes, booths, and floor tiles.


Parliament consists of two chambers, the Upper and Lower (though, confusingly, they are both on the ground floor), whose members consist of Gaullists or Communists, neither of whom is to be trusted, frankly.

Parliament's principal preoccupations are setting off atomic bombs in the South Pacific, and acting indignant when anyone complains. According to the most current State Department intelligence, the President is now someone called Jacques.

Further information is not available at this time.

Culture

The French pride themselves on their culture, though it is not easy to see why.

All their songs sound the same and they've hardly ever made a movie that you'd want to watch for anything but the nude scenes. And nothing, of course, is more boring than a French novel (except, perhaps, for an evening with a French family.)

Cuisine

Let's face it, no matter how much garlic you put on it, a snail is just a slug with a shell on its back. Croissants, on the other hand, are excellent, though it is impossible for most Americans to pronounce this word.

In general, travelers are advised to stick to cheeseburgers at leading hotels such as the Sheraton and Holiday Inn.

Economy

France has a very large and diversified economy, second only to Germany's in Europe, which is surprising because French people hardly work at all. If they're not spending four hours dawdling over they're lunch, they're on strike and blocking the roads with their lorries and tractors.

France's principal exports, in order of importance to the economy, are wine, nuclear weapons, perfume, guided missiles, Chamagne, high-calibre weaponry, grenade launchers, landmines, tanks, attack aircraft, miscellaneous armaments and cheese.

Public Holidays

France has more holidays than any other nation in the world.

Among it's 361 national holidays are 197 Saints' days, 37 National Liberation days, 16 Declaration of Republic days, 54 Return of Charles de Gaulle in Triumph (as if he the War Single-Handed Instead of Running Away) days, 18 Napolean Sent into Exile Days, 17 Napolean Called Back from Exile days, 112 France is Great and the Rest of the World is Rubbish days. Other important days are National Nuclear Bomb day, the Feast of Saint Brigitte Bardot, and National Guillotine day.

Conclusion

France enjoys a rich history, a picturesque and varied landscape and a temperate climate. In short, it would be a very nice country if it weren't inhabited by French people. The best thing that can be said for it is that it isn't Germany.

A Word of Warning

The Consular services of the United States Government are intended solely for the promotion of the interests of American businesses such as McDonald's, Pizza Hut and the Coca-Cola Corporation.

In the event that you are a victim of a crime or serious injury involving at least a loss of a limb, report to the American Embassy between the hours of 5:15 am and 5:20 am on a Tuesday or Wednesday, and a Consular official who is supremely indifferent to your plight will give you a list of qualified dentists or something similarly useless.

Remember, no one ordered you to go abroad. Personally, we always take our holidays in Miami Beach and you are advised to do so as well.

Bon Chance.

Investment in non-residential building construction
First quarter 2007
Heavy spending on office buildings in Alberta and British Columbia pushed investment in non-residential building construction to another record high in the first three months of 2007.
First-quarter investment hit $9.4 billion, up 3.3% from the fourth quarter and the 16th consecutive quarterly increase.
In constant dollars, investment in non-residential building construction increased 0.8% from the fourth quarter.

Canadian international merchandise trade
February 2007
Canadian exports slowed in February, down 2.1% from a record high in January, partly as a result of a 15-day railway strike, which interrupted regular transportation patterns, making it difficult for exporters to ship their products to the border or port.

Overall, Canadian companies exported $39.6 billion worth of merchandise in February, a $800 million drop from the previous month. The only sector registering a gain for the month was energy, most of which is transported via pipeline. With energy excluded, exports plummeted 5.8%. Exports of industrial goods posted the largest decline in February, following nine consecutive increases.

Dj Making Sense Of Michigan Data" Consumer sentiment fell in early April, continuing the pattern of volatility that has been in place for the past couple of years," says Steven Wood, of forecasting firm Insight Economics. "A lot of the recent fluctuations can be accounted for by the gyrations in gasoline prices," he says, adding, "despite the recent declines, the persistent deterioration in sentiment between the end of 2004 through the middle of 2006 appears to have been arrested, mostly because consumers have become more optimistic about the future."

U.K. Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown said Friday that there would be no specific discussions about the level of the Japanese currency at a meeting of the Group of Seven leading industrial nations' finance ministers later today.

Speaking to journalists in Washington, Brown said that issues such as currency levels would "form part of the general discussion" at the G7 meeting.

But with regard to the yen, and the impact of the carry trade, "there is nothing specific on the agenda," Brown said.

Despite Brown's words European finance ministers are expected to raise concerns about the level of the yen during the G7 meeting. The Europeans believe that the yen's current relative weakness is unfavorable to their trade position.

MOSCOW (AP)--Police Friday said they would crack down strongly on unauthorized demonstrations, as protest organizers vowed to defy a ban on marching through Moscow's center and warned antigovernment activists were being detained preemptively.

On the eve of a weekend of demonstrations in the Russian capital and in St. Petersburg, Moscow police official Viktor Biryukov told Ekho Mosvky radio that more than 9,000 police and Interior Ministry officers would be on city streets Saturday when organizers of the so-called Dissenters' March plan to hold their fourth protest in five months.

it is interesting for me what Gooner wrote yesterday re MA cross:
> Quote: "As you know the moving averages cross signals are good but we need the price to get back to them before entering in the direction of the crossover."

this rule is obvious - USDJPY on Hourly went back to 119.17 where exactly the 20 MA crosses the mid term MA>50...

very nice rule on MA cross signals - I didn't have any clue about it till Gooner's remarks ...

btw - given the MA direction Hourly charts as well as 2 & 4 H ... show that we have already established directions:
EURUSD & GBPUSD have all mid term MAs pointing up
USDCHF & USDJPY MAs have crossed to signal a reversal - and actually made the reversals we discussed yesterday..

Expect China to not only hike interest rates some more, but also to allow the CNY to appreciate more rapidly, says Calyon. The bank reaches this conclusion following Thursday's data showing foreign reserves rose by a record-busting $136B during the first quarter. This is twice the amount represented by the trade surplus and foreign direct investment during that period. "There has been a massive comeback of financial flows," the bank says, noting this will jeopardize the PBOC's ability to engineer a soft landing. "The situation requires both more CNY appreciation and higher interest rates," the bank says, forecasting the PBOC will raise the one-year lending rate to 6.66% this quarter and the USD/CNY can reach 7.55 by June. The rate is now at 7.731.

Russian Tycoon Plotting Violent Overthrow Of Putin - Report
Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky has told The Guardian newspaper he is plotting the violent overthrow of President Putin from his base in the U.K. after forging close contacts with members of Russia's ruling elite.
In comments in Friday's edition, the multimillionaire said he was already bankrolling people close to the president who are conspiring to mount a coup but said he couldn't give details because the information was too sensitive. "We need to use force to change this regime," he said. "It isn't possible to change this regime through democratic means. There can be no change without force, pressure."

Hi Bay and ab, 0.7465 in 2005 is the historical top since 1993. The 2nd high was 0.7150 in 1997. If it breaks above 0.7500, the target will be 0.7750 (close to 0.78) with intermittant key resistance 0.7666. NZDYEN has already broken its top of 2005. GL and GT.

Just demographics , lower resources and of course the billions of people entering the 3rd world(Africans, Chinese, Indians..etc) in the next 15-20 years , will keep the curve exponential the other way.(Towards major poverty).
In fact the next 50 Years , the world will face its most severe times of poverty.

As per the The deci-millionare (millionare 10+ times over) category growth rate is growing the fastest and that billionaire list has a freshman list that grows exponentially each year.

You probably mean the ones who ALREADY have assets are generating more equities faster than at any time..

Thx for the discussion here. Well patriotism has nothing to do with it- just wanted to disclose since the post was going to seem very pro US etc. from the standpoint that the state of a fiat currency is a reflection of the country etc blah blah…

Anyway not every kid sells a youtube etc but the reality is that the wealth has grown faster than any other time in history and with millions of millionaires here it is not that difficult to become another one of that crowd in a very short period of time.
The deci-millionare (millionare 10+ times over) category growth rate is growing the fastest and that billionaire list has a freshman list that grows exponentially each year.

As stated am a capitalist and am happy to long or short whatever the odds seems to project as an opportunity.
Very contrary to the rest of the world (Or at least the parts I have traveled) the US citizens are rarely aware of currency conversion rates as generally they are not directly impacted by them so patriotism when it comes to long or short the buck means nothing to most here. I take the exception to that because those beautiful Bugatti Veyrons are priced here in Euros so have seen those take a bit of a jump in USD cost from order to delivery timeframe.

The debts have grown and so have the assets. Am not discounting the twins at all just keeping it in relative perspective for the forum. At times the headlines seem so dire that the world view must be that we are all lining up at the soup kitchen LOL.

As for the Whitehouse etc have posted in early Nov of last year a Pelosi EUR/USD view of 1.34-36 after CNN(Communist News Network) announced Pelosi was the new leader of the US. LOL

Again just some thoughts from the street level over here.

Well oddly am short the USD on some pairs (GBP/USD, EUR/USD) for swings and long oil from 61.80 and have been working in to a long USD/CAD position that I may end up treating as a quick strike on a reaction or cut it loose at a loss. Time will tell on that. Also just started to short AUD/USD from .8320 and will see how it reacts from here.

I cant say patriotism is part of my modus, being a 'bastd' child of the east and the US, and natal of in-between. I don't want my dollar bear views confused with anti-us sentiment. There isn't any point in that, for me it would be self-hating and if politics shift towards a global outlook the US is the best naion suited to idealistic leadership. BUT there are imbalances in the US caused by excessive consumption vs saving exacerbated by the failure of the gov to keep its belt tight. We can 'save' by investing in equities as long as valuations are realistic. But when valuations are risky it isnt saving it is speculatin. That said, the imbalnces could go on for a long time especially as demand for dollars follows dollar denominated commodities. Trading on dollar devaluation short term would be idiotic.

It's like implying people shorting the US$ are not patriot , while we all know the us$ is going down and the whitehouse DEFINITELY wants it to go that way..When debts have risen 1200% over 20 years , a lower $ won't hurt at all..

Appreciate your views. We are all familiar with the negative headlines that are ever present here and have dominated the media for years about the US and her economy but there is another side not often told or understood that does not match the same headlines.

Admit that I am an ardent patriot- but true to the theme here am also a capitalist in a capitalist society. Having said that even after the USD deflation over the last 5 yrs the equity markets are up HUGE, housing very HUGE and while the USD may have deflated there are a whole bunch more of 'em floating around. This is where it is interesting as I have never seen so much wealth and prosperity for decades here.
Am familiar with the negative savings rate but when yields are so low it makes no sense. The $ is invested in various markets and businesses for a real rate of return. And of course hoards of cash has been going into retirement accounts (which are not counted in that savings statistic)

It has never been easier to become wealthy in the US. Teenage and college age kids are selling their internet companies and patented ideas for 10's even 100's of millions as an example. Private jet sales are soaring and lest we forget John Arnold- the 33 yr old that took home a personal income of approx $2 billion last year trading natural gas.

Just another opinion from the "street" level

Is it correct if we take relatve returns vs foreign assetts. The US dollar vallue of assetts has been falling. The trade deficit and budget deficit make usd less valuable if the return on dollar denominated assets is low This is only really a problem if the return on dollar denomnated asets is negative (fx weighted) this may be the prospect during a us econ slowdown. The us consumer is now a negative saver which is fine if the economy is growing enough. Is it growing enough?

"Another thing to look at over 5 year period is the lack of profit for foreign investors placing money in the US.
In ANY US market..."

Oil man- This is not correct. Not arguing but a broad bold statement such as this is shortsighted. Perhaps some markets have done better than others around the globe but if you look at your example DOW, SNP etc from April 2002 the gains are massive- even after converting to Euros. Also the idea of USD index off 15% so a "smart" man allocated there is not a reasonable conclusion as very few allocate into derivatives. And those that do and are smart will use a hedge fund where the results are a crap shoot anyway. Or, at the very least use a diversified basket incl gold, oil other currencies etc. But a smart guy knows that too and does not allocate much into that risk environment- or at least according to the Family Office groups, high net worth advisors and of course Ibbotson.

Betting on a higher Eur/USD is still possible up to 136, the risk is on the Eur/Jpy which looks toppish, though may enter again into 160.90-161.10 range. If that will be combined with a proper verbal intervention a strong correction may follow. Above that range one has to believe in 165 as target.

If you believe that many Japs can't sleep at night since China surpassed them in forex reserve, you may believe at all and any lower Yen cross rates.

Today he takes his money off the table and ships it back to his European account ...result :
-19 Dow, -53% dollar index, -18 SNP , -29 Nasdaq...Not including bonds as the guy is smarter..Otherwise it would be another 50 down..

Don't think this is really appetizing for any investor not $ based...Or even smart US players..

Just looked again , and the strength of the vol signal incoming on $/CAD is impressive , for those who read post earlier during the week and to get a better idea , in 2004 (when i posted the short 1.40 for 1.21) my custom indicator had a 1780 or so number..think of it as a RSI kind of thing, it starts going down it has up to 0 ..Right before the big downfall from 1.60 it was around 2200...It's now at 2900..As i said a month ago (when $/CAD was around 1.17) , hard to forget the high and low, but things are getting precarious for the US$....It's clearly not out of the woods..

Re $/CAD , we ve broken the first area from here , the new low is incoming(Read $/CAD post from a few days ago).

O mighty Zeus
Just from my observation you seem to be a Pound Master and Eur/Yen. Why not stick with your best? And your posts are certainly welcome here. Myself my best pairs are Euro and Yen. I was very concerned when $ couldn't rally on good news last week and this week and decided not to be long $ but only stay on the short side.

The FT had an article on February 1st (or thereabout, shortly before the previous G7) about the NOK as the new choice for carry trades. I've been keeping it on my radar screen since. NOK_JPY just crossed a daily trendline and may still have room to go to the next trendline on daily chart with target at 20.3. NOK_SEK crawled above the weekly upper trendline at ~1.142 and is now hesitating.
Just my 2c, of course.

Analysts said the $3 trillion (£1.52 trillion) of annual currency trading by retail investors in Japan may be the main reason for the persistent weakness of the yen — a boon to Japan’s exporters in recent months

Does anyone really expect anything concrete to come out of G7?
At the last meeting the message was that JPY exchange rate was being set by the market. It was clear, however, that there was a difference of opinion between Europe and USA.
USA needs USD/JPY firm so Japanese will invest in USD paper and Europe needs a EUR/JPY weaker so it can compete in export markets.
Nonetheless the bigger fish is China. Both Europe and USA want China to float and let the market determine the value of the yuan. If in the meantime the authorities intervene to manipulate the JPY in the markets the Chinese will turn around and say you hypocritical bunch of bastards.
Despite favourbale interest differentials the market doesn't believe the Fed. It sees the sub-prime problems deepening and bringing on a recession that will erode the differentials.
So nest week Aussie up to 85 cents, Cable over 2 dollars, Euro at 1.36 and Yen probably staying where it is.
I hope I am wrong!

One last note. The G-7 expressed its concerns about the carry trade already at the last meeting. The warning shots were fired. Currency trading never had an easy button attached to your point and click mouse. This game surely will not end the way some are hoping. Good evening and good trading.

The million dollar question is how long the Fed and the BOJ can keep up the charades. The massive amounts of liquidity flowing into US paper products will have reprocussions that will not end nicely. For every action there is an equal and greater reaction. Timing is the only question, direction is obvious. GL

Here we go guys, laying it on the line and the way it will be.
Gold is clearly being stopped from doing its thing. This will not last long, days at the most. The yellow metal is heading to 740 to 750 area next. The US Dollar Index is headed to .7500 and then possibly lower deoending on the fight by the Fed the keep it the illusion game going. Place your bets and let the hand play out as it will. Noise and opinions will always be present. Looking at a weekly chart the index looks weak, looking at a monthly chart is where the magic is at. If the Us Dollar were a stock it would be Enron. Good luck and see you at the celebration party.

SYDNEY ACC,

Your views were not off, I remember you being sceptical about kiwi going down when Auckland Peat shorted it at 0.718x, I think, and you were right, and also you were right on aud/usd going up a couple of months back when you told me this time the rise of aud/usd is something different compared to earlier when it used to cross 0.80, I think your call for aud/jpy 100, will be a reality soon. Your present targets with appetite for high yielding currencies and usd's bearishness may be right.

I have been wanting to long kiwi since 0.7000 but always chickened out thinking a correction is due soon and will get in at a lower rate, 350pips later and no correction apparent. Wish could be more like USA Zeus.

FWIW it's my guess (and that's all it is because I'm completely out of the water on everything) is that AUD/USD is going up to 0.8500, EUR/USD to 1.3600 and therefore Kiwi goes to 0.7520. we broke the 20 year high this morning the previous was 0.7349 in April 2005.
Now then because I can't even pick my nose correctly at the moment if you dealt opposite these views I would almost guarantee you would make money.
