AUD/USD : The market was able to find support around the quantized level at 0.8235* and it is now trying to anchor itself at 0.8295*. The next quantized level is 0.8354*. The mid-point reference of 0.8295 and 0.8354 is 0.8324. The market rhythm of my weekly cycle is represented by 59 - 60 pips(i.e. 0.8235*, 0.8295*, 0.8354*, 0.8413* and 0.8472* are separated by a constant value).


Melbourne Qindex 02:16 GMT April 23, 2007

Spanish real estate
Published: April 24 2007 20:54 | Last updated: April 24 2007 20:54

How timely it is to be reminded that dangerously inflated markets do not last forever. In the past few days, Spanish real estate has exhibited all the signs of a bursting bubble. While unfortunate for the owners of Spanish homes and property stocks, a popping sound should focus the minds of all investors in risky assets.

The speed of such corrections is always humbling. A week ago, developer Astroc Mediterraneo was the darling of the sector, trading at €45 per share. On Tuesday, following financing concerns, its share price is just €16. Amazingly, this still equates to a forward price/earnings multiple of 20 times. The sell-off in real estate has now spread into the local construction and banking sectors too. It will be interesting to watch whether investor panic travels to other pockets of property irrationality across Europe and beyond.

Just wonder whats going to happen when the ECB gets rates up to 4% , thats when the fun and games will start Ireland feeling it now even with low rates

Spanish property boom ends
Spain’s overpriced property stocks came crashing down on Tuesday, with panic selling in the real estate sector signalling the end of a 10-year-old construction boom.

kaprikorn// maybe too many things too look at? I try and decide where i will be wrong prior to the trade and upgrade as the price changes in your favour and exit when it doesnt. Ive been holding this long since 2.0003/6 (broker gave me 2.0010 ask) even under whater to the low at 1.9953. Now, finally the decision corridor is narrowing. I honestly don't care if i'm wrong but if im right there should be a couple of hundred in it.

Good luck to you.

I observe the 4 hour charts EURUSD & GBPUSD - they both have very bullish outlook - MACD rising - all MAs lined up for a takeoff ...
and :) the Wedge in Cable just upgraded a bit but still looking promising..
- btw we broke the Record High in EURUSD 1.3638...so the uptrend is intact...
- this will pressure I guess the CAD down

the whole confusion came from the fact that I gave too much confidence to the breakout of the Wedge pattern
===============================
it broke to the upside, its supposed to break to the downside.this is called a headfake and within the whole picture ta,fundamentals ,etc there was no reason for it to go up. the 4hr chart is still showing that a pullback is likely towards 19870-80. the downmove was instigated by aussie taking the wind out of the carry trade somewhat sending $y down as well.

Sofia Kaprikorn 20:19 GMT April 24, 2007 Reply   
the whole confusion came from the fact that I gave too much confidence to the breakout of the Wedge pattern...

however I saw smtg strange that put my scenario away from confidence - GBPUSD stalled at 40 while the EURUSD & EURGBP rallied - so I saw some divergence that I couldn't understand - so when I don't have an idea what is going on - then definately you make mistakes...
in hindsight I had to take those 20 pips from 20 to 40 and leave the EURUSD since it is in a trend and it was obvious that "some big players" will aim for the record High.. however in hindsight...

there's nothing real in the last hours, just machine's global netting of flows.... basically tells nothing, maybe a stop level area... the usdindex is getting closer and closer to the point of market crazyness, might be tomorrow or next week - Its just a blow in the wind away of a hurricane enviroment imo... no forecast so far nor prediction is possible, hence tomorrow central bankers speeches the pullbackers and bouncebuyers will follow will be volatility undesired...but markets at a certain point will vomit out all those verbal interventions back em in face

PAR - this one's for you:

San
Francisco, April 24. USD/JPY has bounced back to 118.53 after a low of 118.35
this morning with rumored semi-official bids behind the bid at the lows this
morning. The move up takes USD/JPY back to the familiar range seen yesterday
with bids from Japanese accounts still eyed around 118.20/25 and offers at
119.00. Stops are eyed above 119.05/10 but offers are staggered ahead of
119.40/50. The bounce back in the USD/JPY to current levels is further
reinforcing expectations that USD/JPY will remain in a 117.50-119 range into
Golden Week holidays and that CPI data and the BOJ semi-annual report may not
have much impact.

Funny the recent Bill Bonner's Daily Reckoning I just receive into my email - must be of yesterday but do not know as no time to read It

Excerpt from Bill Bonner's Daily Reckoning:

What a delightful, degenerate economy! AP reports that three million manufacturing jobs have been lost in the United States since George W. Bush came into the White House. But who cares about making anything anymore? Who cares about actually creating the things that really make people wealthier? The money is not in making things...but in shuffling paper around.

Well good luck to you, you seem to be doing alright. On the news just watch out for the killer spreads on certain brokers. How long have you been trading? FYI....the GBP/JPY is great for scalping depending on the spread that you have.

Long Long Long, I feel the USD will get strong against the majors leaving the highs and lows that it is hitting behind for quiet a while. I was more the opposite but since it has been stalling and other global indicators I feel that this is it. It might weaken a bit more make new lows against the Euro and cable but in the next two weeks or so it should strengthen.

As an example today i traded gbp-usd . I waited for the 2 pm gmt news. I put some buy limit above the price, 10 pips, 12 pips, 14 pips and 16 pips. But i put in tight take profit, 7 pips...

Nine Chinese and 65 Ethiopians were killed and seven Chinese workers were kidnapped, the AP said, citing Xu Shuang, general manager of Zhongyuan Petroleum Exploration Bureau, based in Addis Ababa.

yeap strange this market positioning..the most interesting was the lost in carry confidence started in australia earlier today with the UBS risk aversion showin less interest in such.. on the other side we do have the Usd yet pretty sound given the datas we have seen so this might help USDCAD sustaining into tomorrow a touch into 1.1280 or so... on the other side some billions of stops are placed on the UsdJpy between 11820 to th 118...Gold is said big resistance is placed at 715...

so we might see this narrow rebalancing of flows or a gold big surge or a yen surge.. or a mixture of the above as central banks said want to cut volatility.. we are going to see as usual this global melange unreasonably managed :)

Well Dr. Z, there's hope bottled and delivered to you via our good friend BR:

"And yet traders are bored to tears by chewing over the same old themes and may be interested in entertaining some new ideas--like the idea that the dollar has been oversold. If you can’t sell it, buy it--and in the process, trigger a domino effect on stops by weak hands (the retail market). Show ‘em who’s boss. Then confuse everyone by seeming to halt the retracement at some handy Fibonacci or Gann level, only to do it again. With the Fib and Gann numbers covering just about every possible level (from 12.5% to 75% by 25’s and the Fibonacci sequence), one of the numbers is bound to be right, or nearly right."

In some ways it is a momentous event. The banks are expected to focus on the growing ranks of the country's wealthy, who are more familiar with foreign-style banks. Not to be outdone, Bank of China, the country's second-biggest lender, launched a private banking service for millionaires only, in partnership with the Royal Bank of Scotland, which has a tiny stake in the Chinese bank. We'll see a lot more services launched soon. Hopefully, all this will pay off. But it will be quite a while.

April 24 (Bloomberg) -- Declines in home prices in 20 U.S. metropolitan areas accelerated in the 12 months ended in February, a private survey showed today.

Values fell 1 percent from February 2006 after dropping 0.1 percent in the year ended January, according to the S&P/Case- Shiller home-price index. January's decrease was the first since the group started keeping year-over-year records in 2001.

Slow demand has left a glut of homes for sale on the market that's forcing sellers to reduce prices, economists said. A rise in foreclosures may add to the number of unsold homes, suggesting prices will be slow to rebound and housing will continue to limit economic growth.

''The upside risk to the Bank's inflation projection is that the recent strength of inflation could be more persistent than projected. The downside risk continues to come from the possibility of a more pronounced slowdown in the U.S. economy. The Bank continues to judge that the risks to its inflation projection are roughly balanced, although there is now a slight tilt to the upside.''

March 2007

The composite index advanced 0.4% in March, reinforcing its 0.7% gain the month before. Household spending remained the driving force of growth, boosted by a robust labour market. Financial market conditions also remained buoyant, with the stock market hitting a new record. Manufacturing continued to recover slowly, as sluggish US demand was compounded by the rail strike.

They analysed 20,000 responses from the biannual European Social Survey of 15 countries. While high income is an important factor, high trust in public institutions and in other people is a feature of the happier Nordic countries.…

-it was a a complete shamble. Companies building anywhere and everywhere, a real jungle out there
-big buiding companies have started to diversify heavily, ie one buying BAA, another one buying Endessa under the nose of E On etc.
-anybody could be a real estate agent
-In Spain there is also all these tourists coming to Spain for the beach and sun, ie high demand
-while ECB is happy with the current inflation rate in the Euro zone, this is running much higher in Spain
- this gvnmet is trying to put the brakes on because there was a lot destruction as in nature destruction
-it i more and more current to see people borrowing for over 40-50 years now to be able to buy a flat

i could go on but i do not want to bore people. 8-) definatly i would say Spain is probaly one the top countries for real estate sur evaluation !

Interest rates 'could reach 7.5pc'

A group of Britain's leading monetarists have launched a harsh attack on the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee, warning that inflation risks surging out of control in repeat of earlier boom-bust cycles. LINK

--

The beautiful thing about hyper-inflation is that it causes a sudden switch of perception from "inflation = rising prices" to "hey the money we use here is worth $h!t and will be worth even less than that tomorrow, might as well get rid of it" and let someone else hold that bag.

If hyper inflation ever gets hold in the UK (highly unlikely but still possible) and you find yourself in a pub with a few friends always offer to buy the first round of drinks. The reason is simple - hyper inflation causes prices to rise so fast and so quickly that the second round of drinks will normally cost double the first!

An article in the Spanish financial daily `Expansión' quotes ?scar Martínez - president of the Association of Property Experts (Asociación de Expertos Inmobiliarios - APEI) - as saying that some 30% of the 60,000 estate agencies estimated to exist in Spain could go out of business in the coming property market slowdown. According to Martínez, the fall in demand for property, and an expected increase in regulation by both national and regional authorities mean
that we can "expect a radical change in the Spanish estate agency business in the coming months."

Yen Firmer - Is Carry Ready to Unwind?Australian fiscal authorities are becoming uncomfortable with the high value of the Aussie. Last week Treasury Secretary Costello warned that the currency’s exchange rates were starting to hurt exporters. With Aussie having climbed to 17 year highs against the dollar last week on mounting speculation of not just one but two near term rate hikes by the RBA, any negative surprise in CPI could trigger an avalanche of profit taking in both AUDUSD and AUDJPY as momentum players bail out of the trade. All of this in turn should help the yen as the very same carry trades that hurt it in the past month begin to be unwound. Furthermore, if US equity markets recede from their record highs, the yen would only gain more strength on the move to risk aversion.

SHANGHAI (Dow Jones)--China should broaden the investment channels for its huge foreign exchange reserves by "appropriately" increasing its gold reserves and buying strategic resources such as oil and metals, People's Bank of China Vice Governor Xiang Junbo said Tuesday.

China's government should also set up a closed-end fund to raise money from domestic investors and use the proceeds to buy forex reserves from the central bank to invest abroad, Xiang in a speech at Fudan University in Shanghai.

He said his comments represent his personal views and don't necessarily reflect the stance of the central bank.

The government should also invest some of the forex reserves in low-risk bonds in overseas markets and also inject some of the reserves into state-owned banks, policy lenders and stockholding commercial banks to help their overseas expansion, he said.

The government should set up a forex investment agency to manage part of the forex reserves, Xiang said, without elaborating.

He added that interest rate hikes are only playing a limited role in controlling liquidity in the money market.

"The reserve requirement ratio hikes and issuance of central bank bills will better serve the current need to absorb liquidity," Xiang said.

Spanish Real Estate Stocks Tumble In Wide Selloff
Spanish real estate stocks tumbled Tuesday, as the meltdown of local real estate company Astroc Mediterraneo SA (AST.MC) resulted in a wide selloff on concerns about a potential crash in a red-hot sector that has backed the fastest-growing economy in the euro zone.The country's top five real estate stocks on the Spanish exchange each fell more than 10%, with the rest of the sector also sharply lower. Shares of construction and financial services companies, which are also exposed to the real estate sector, were also under intense pressure. "Last year, there was great appetite for the sector. Today, the opposite is happening," said Alejandro Uriarte, head of European equities at Spanish brokerage Banif.

Uriarte said that a slew of merger activity in the sector had pushed deal values, and stock prices, to levels never seen before.

"Stocks that used to trade at a 25% discount to net asset value have been trading at premiums of up to 50% above NAV," Uriarte said.

Recently, many of the shares of real estate companies floated in the Spanish market have ended up in the hands of retail investors, as many of them were among the best performers in the country. "There's few instititional investors, because most of these stocks have long ago stopped trading on fundamentals," Uriarte said. Banif sold its real estate holdings long before the current selloff, he added.
The selloff started last week, when shares of Astroc dropped 37% to EUR17.90 Monday and a further 43% on Wednesday, on reports that an audit showed some of Astroc's profits were generated through the sale of buildings to its own chairman, Enrique Banuelos.

Traders said that retail investors in Spain are placing sell orders of real estate companies that now are seen as extremely overvalued.

"We already had the subprime debacle in the U.S. causing nervousness in the sector. Now, after Astroc's recent slide, all the other real estate stocks are pressured, and that has spread into construction stocks, which in turn is hurting financials," said a trader with Ibersecurities brokerage.

Spain's central bank calculates that housing prices, after five years of double-digit increases, are overvalued by around 30% at a time when European interest rates are rising and Spanish household debt has swollen to 120% of disposable income, one of the highest levels in the euro zone. Three-quarters of this debt is financed at variables rates.

Turkey's prime minister Recep T. Erdogan confirms foreign minister Abdullah GuL to be party's candidate for president. The question over who should replace respected president Ahmet N. Sezer caused concern due to controversial secularity track record of the former. Erdogan was thought to be a candidate. However following a mass protest of 1.5 million people in Ankara, the capital and pressure from opposition parties, the prime minister seems to opt for his long term political ally instead.

Havent looked at it before so grains of salt and all that, but MXN on the daily looks like its compressing so it would need to indicate its direction with a breakout. The Ichimoku is indicating bearishness with the cloud above it at 11.10 acting as resistance. Would need to convincingly break that level to become bullish again.
Whereas gold is above its cloud that spreads from that 650-80 range. all imo of course.

Loonie: Well until now pattern is still on and getting stronger. If 11230 can not be reached anymore than we will see 11170-80 very soon. Than it comes to the point that it is better to short during the day, take the pips AND also try to get the longs that have a perfect outcome (like an egg) in the clogmorning.
On the other hand there is preference… what do you want, but what does market do. Currently I am not doing what the market wants, so do I be stubborn and long till I drop, or do I long in the evening take my pips and don’t bother big movements? I have the feeling that many people lose with loonie because they don’t follow pattern…. I am long as from 11221. Pattern said get out at 11240, nice piptets. But what do I do: I go for the 11294. So is this a plan or suicide… We will see when loonie takes its course.
For now it is even possible to see 11144 if NN decides not to long just under 11190…. But whatever happens market does what it does…..

CENTRAL BANK WATCH: RBA Sidelined Until Mid-2008 At Least
Hawkish Australian rate expectations have all but dissipated following surprisingly benign first quarter inflation news Tuesday, with economists forecasting interest rates will remain unchanged at least until mid-2008.

Inflation rose 0.1% in the first quarter, well short of a forecast rise of 0.6%, lowering year-on-year inflation to 2.4% from 3.3%, its slowest pace of increase in two years, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said.
The Australian dollar lost almost a full U.S. cent after the data. At 0700 GMT, the Australian dollar was trading at US$0.8236.

dj...Australian Rate Hike Off Agenda As Inflation Eases

Economists said an official interest rate increase is now almost certainly off the agenda this year with a high Australian dollar set to depress import prices.

"The interest rate debate has been forestalled for the rest of the year," Westpac chief economist Bill Evans said.

While the Australian government nominates membership of the RBA board, it allows the central bank to set rates independent of Canberra under an inflation targeting agreement struck with Treasurer Costello in 1996.

Official interest rates now appear locked at 6.25% for the foreseeable future just as the Liberal-National coalition government readies itself to face a closely contested federal election expected before the end of 2007.

Interest rates have been hiked four times since the 2004 election, undermining the federal government's campaign promise to keep them at record lows.

Voter sentiment has shifted sharply away from the government since the elevation of popular new Opposition Leader Kevin Rudd to the leadership of the Australian Labor Party in late 2006.

Polls since then have consistently predicted a landslide Labor victory at the next election, with the coalition unable to close the voter gap.

Craig James, chief equities economist at Commonwealth Securities said if the last two quarters of inflation data are taken together, inflation is at its lowest level in 9 years.

"The benign nature of price pressures, together with the strong Australian dollar and the relatively high level of current cash rates all point to the RBA remaining firmly on the interest rate sidelines," James said.

The RBA is expected to confirm it is has interest rates on hold for the foreseeable future in a quarterly policy statement to be published May 4.

If pattern goes the same way than 11187 will be some kind of a low. If 11247 is beaten again the 11294 is in sight. Guess that a lot of people shorted at the looks of that 11247, they where right at the moment. Slow day of yesterday is gone and loondert is trying to look for a bottom. Let us see.

The Golden Week is a collection of four national holidays within seven days. In combination with well placed weekends, the Golden Week becomes one of Japan's three busiest holiday seasons, besides New Year and the Obon week.

Trains, airports and sightseeing spots get very crowded during Golden Week, and accommodation in tourist areas can get booked out well in advance.

The national holidays making up the Golden Week are:
April 29
Showa Day (Showa no hi):
April 29 is the birthday of former Emperor Showa, who died in the year 1989. Until 2006, Greenery Day (see May 4) used to be celebrated on this day.

May 3
Constitution Day (Kenpo kinenbi):
On this day in 1947, the new post war constitution was put into effect.

May 4
Greenery Day (Midori no hi):
Until 2006, Greenery Day used to be celebrated on April 29, the birthday of former Emperor Showa. The day is dedicated to the environment and nature, because the emperor loved plants and nature. Before being declared Greenery Day, May 4 used to be a national holiday due to a law, which declares a day, that falls between two national holidays, a national holiday.

May 5
Children's Day (Kodomo no hi):
The Boy's Festival (Tango no Sekku) is celebrated on this day. Families pray for the health and future success of their sons by hanging up carp streamers and displaying samurai dolls, both symbolizing strength, power and success in life. The Girl's Festival, by the way, is celebrated on March 3.

FT letter by Prof Tim Congdon and other experts : "We believe that money supply growth is too high and that the BoE has underestimated the likelihood of continued above-target inflation in 2008.

While euro strength towards the previous high of 1.3660/80 can still be seen, such strength should offer a good chance to short EUR/USD as it seems this pair is losing momentum against this resistance level. An unexpected break would target 1.45/46 at least. IMHO

April 24 (Bloomberg) -- Australia's dollar dropped, the biggest fluctuation of any currency today, after a government report showed inflation was slower than expected, reducing the chance of an interest-rate increase.

The local dollar fell the most in seven weeks and government bonds rose as traders cut bets the Reserve Bank of Australia would raise borrowing costs at its next meeting in May. The currency last week reached the strongest in 17 years, helped by speculation the central bank would raise its benchmark rate from a six-year high of 6.25 percent.

``This puts a dint in the short-term strength of the Australian dollar,'' said Tobias Davis, senior currency dealer at Custom House Global Foreign Exchange in Sydney. ``With consumer prices like that, we will see the RBA hold in May.''

Al-Qaeda ‘planning big British attack’
AL-QAEDA leaders in Iraq are planning the first “large-scale” terrorist attacks on Britain and other western targets with the help of supporters in Iran, according to a leaked intelligence report.

Spy chiefs warn that one operative had said he was planning an attack on “a par with Hiroshima and Nagasaki” in an attempt to “shake the Roman throne”, a reference to the West.

Carry Trade Crosses Vulnerable But Holding Support

Key carry trade crosses AUD/JPY, NZD/JPY, GBP/JPY lower as weak Australia 1Q CPI prompts profit-taking; crosses holding above key supports provided by lows hit Thursday, but analysts, traders warn of further unwinding of positions ahead of key Japan data Friday including CPI, industrial output, BOJ policy decision and economic outlook report. Above-forecast data or upgraded forecasts from BOJ could signal potential BOJ tightening, would add weight to unwind trades; rise in risk aversion would be another trigger for trades to be closed, but crosses have recovered from Thursday's sell-off prompted by concern strong China growth may force tightening and lift in risk aversion.

Loonie continues to soar
Bank of Canada expected to ignore inflation pressures, keep interest rates steady
Eric Beauchesne, CanWest News Service
Published: Monday, April 23, 2007

OTTAWA — With the Canadian dollar trading at a near half-year high of more than US$0.89, the Bank of Canada is widely expected to ignore a buildup in inflation pressures, especially in Western Canada, and keep interest rates steady today.

The loonie, which has soared more than five per cent against the U.S. dollar since February, continued to edge higher Monday, closing at 89.08 cents US, up from 89.05 cents US Friday.
And some analysts expect it will go higher.

The currency, which has been bolstered by high commodity prices and a strong economy, and which has been rising on the back of a sliding U.S. dollar, will rise above 90 cents US this spring, CIBC World Markets is forecasting.


However, not all of the Canadian dollar’s run is attributable to high resource prices or the general trend against the U.S. dollar, CIBC’s Avery Shenfeld said in advance of the Bank of Canada interest rate decision.

It is also a reflection of a change in the mood in money markets, which have gone from pricing in Canadian interest rate cuts later this year to pricing in the possibility of a future rate hike later this year, Shenfeld noted.

That change in mood follows evidence that the economy is strengthening and that inflation is rising.
Carl Weinberg, economist and head of U.S.-based High Frequency Economics, said it now appears the inflation rate, which at 2.3 per cent is already above the central bank’s two per cent target, will rise above its three per cent ceiling this year.

However, he and other analysts were not expecting any rate increase today, although there was speculation the central bank may hint, in its statement accompanying its interest rate announcement, at the possibility of a future rate hike to contain inflation pressures.

The central bank, and governor David Dodge, will provide a broader explanation of its views on inflation Thursday when it releases its Monetary Policy Review.

But the central bank is "hamstrung" by the growing economic divide in Canada, Weinberg said.

"Clearly inflationary conditions in the western provinces — notably Alberta, but also British Columbia, are being offset by disinflation and economic hardship in the eastern provinces," Weinberg said. "The Bank of Canada cannot raise rates to address inflation out west without slamming already hard hit provincial economies back east."

Meanwhile, the strong loonie is adding to the economic woes of manufacturers, adding to the competitiveness of imports while making their exports less competitive.

"The loonie's strength is killing manufacturing," Weinberg said.

Aussie Money Mkt Prices Slim Rate Hike Risk
Australia money market now pricing very little chance of 25bp rate hike at May 1 RBA board meeting, and reducing likelihood of rate move in next 12 months from 100% to just above 50%; Credit Suisse Implied Monetary Policy Index shows market pricing 5% chance of 25bp rate in May after weak 1Q headline and underlying CPI, down sharply from 44% risk pre-data. Rise in underlying CPI slows to 2.7% in 1Q, well within RBA's 2%-3% target range

AUD/JPY Down On Weak Aussie CPI; May Fall More
AUD/JPY drops briefly to session low of 97.88 on much weaker-than-expected Australian 1Q CPI data;
may fall further, possibly another 50 sen, says trader at major European bank. "With the recent upward trend of the Australian
dollar, there are possibly many stops piling up that may pull the currency down significantly down." USD/JPY, EUR/JPY
show no major reaction "but this result is likely to put much downward pressure on the crosses." AUD/JPY last at
97.96,

Aussie 1Q CPI Below Expectations; AUD/USD Falls

Australian 1Q CPI surprisingly weak, up 0.1% on quarter vs +0.6% expected, up 2.4% on year vs +3.0% expected. Data diminish rate hike expectations ahead of May 1 RBA meeting. Australian dollar tumbles, with AUD/USD hitting 0.8281 from 0.8325 pre-CPI data, Australian bonds rally with 3-year futures hitting 93.895 from 93.805 pre-data. May 30 day Interbank cash future reaches 93.725 from pre-data 93.635, though June 30-day interbank future steady at 93.605 as market still contemplates a deferred rate hike.

BOJ's next rate hike may come in August if Japan indicators stronger than expected, says Bank
of America economist Tomoko Fuji;. "although we still predict the next rate hike to be in September, there is also the
possibility of an August hike if CPI and GDP data support this." Adds, CPI will definitely need to be in positive territory
with 2Q GDP at least above 1.5% growth, with a rise to about 2.5% ideal.

Syd, fwiw: "Bloomberg says the yen rose on the S&P Ratings Agency lifting Japan’s rating for the first time since 1975, citing banking system reform, fiscal efforts and good growth.
We find that the FX market is usually unmoved by ratings agency actions and don’t buy the “reason” for the yen to have improved, however briefly. The yen failed to fall when the ratings agencies were busy lowering Japan’s ratings on the high debt-to-GDP ratio a few years ago (to the same level as Botswana, which has no taxing ability to speak of and certainly nothing compared to Japan)."
