The interesting thing about the recent CD move is it points to the human side of trading, the need to predict, the need to see a repetition of past patterns, the reluctance to accept change and act accordingly.

I recently posted that my problem with my CD trade was having to daily recalculate a trailing stop. This was once the way one traded currencies...because they were very trendy...hop on board and protect your a##. The recent past had taught some that currencies were not trendy at all, but rangebound. This change in character of the market chews to bits traders who just want to set a trailing stop and then fight the boredom as the profits add up. But it gives delight to those who crave action and live for the profit that reinforces their "being right" by picking entries and targets..

The trick is to recognize when to change approaches.

Recent postings have shown that this is one of the most difficult and costly aspects of the tradiing game.

FWIW. was trailing stopped out yesterday before the rate announcement and as a result missed today's spectacular...and one could say predictable Oil Day run up in the CD. Lesson: stops too tight.

NZD/JPY May Drop To 87.80, But To Rebound Soon


2338 GMT [Dow Jones] NZD/JPY may fall to 87.80 on selling by Asian fund players to lock in profits as RBNZ didn't make forward-looking comments after raising rate to 7.75%, says Tokyo trader; "it appears that players, who overly built up New Zealand dollar-long positions against the yen, are now selling, regarding RBNZ's decision as a cue." But pair may rebound to 88.50, then 88.60 on buying by Japan institutional investors for foreign bond investment, still looking to high yields in NZ.

This is what I like about the madness of crowds. The emotion increases on capitulation as everyone made $ off of a CAD trade while few posted any entries.

Am in heavy on the allocation as a % that I have committed to the position. However, will lighten on a blip.

I am now the marked target for spoofs and "I told you so"'s as if my honest real time postings of trades, game plans allocations etc made me the sworn enemy.

This comes as no surprise in an allocation trade. Everyone is usually right at the exact wrong time. Sense that about this crowd. Shelter with numbers for some.

tp on the last move down. My method has been saying stay short from the 1510 zone except for a few periods when it
went flat or started to go range bound & I should have stayed
short, but I didn't. Anyway, I was still able to slice out about
half of the move down. Staying flat on this pair for now. Price
action is far more important than any method. Just my humble
views of course. GT

GDP is just above trend and there is no evidence of a slowdown yet. Continued strength in Europe is also helping the UK's economy. I think the euro is going to outperform the pound as our inflation may prove to be more transitory and for that reason the tightening cycle will end sooner. The pound trading at or above the $2 mark is purely a psychological thing. Once traders feel more comfortable above this level, I can't see any reason why it shouldn't press on higher.

Bank fears threat from credit standards
A surge in cheap corporate lending with looser credit standards “has increased the vulnerability of the [global financial] system”, the Bank of England will warn on Thursday in its strongest comments to date on financial stability.
The Bank also cautions against weakening standards of risk assessment when bank loans are repackaged and resold to new investors, such as pension and hedge funds. In its twice-yearly financial stability review, it says the recent turmoil in the US subprime mortgage market illustrates a problem that original lenders, which sold off the default risk, often allowed their standards to slip.“Similar problems in a more significant market, such as corporate credit, could have more serious consequences if credit quality were to deteriorate,” the Bank says, but it insists the UK financial system remains highly resilient, underpinned by a benign global economic outlook.
Its concerns relate to the consequences of an unforeseen shock to the global economy, world politics or a large financial institution. It is worried that other big financial institutions could find themselves over-exposed in the event of serious turbulence on global markets.

RBNZ's policy stetement today is "clear warning" that intervention to cap further NZD strength is "now a significant risk," says ABN AMRO currency strategist Greg Gibbs; adds RBNZ's comments that exchange rate exceptionally high, unjustified by fundamentals match criteria for FX intervention. Notes central bank has previously made clear that among other things exchange rate must be expectionally high or low, unjustified by economic fundamentals.

No problem. Not martingale as am not chasing anything. However depending on what % of the total allocation is already in the market for this position and depending on what signal is given I may double and/or triple the size. The key is to keep enough blocks avail to do so when allocating. If in deep to where the allocation is almost finished but the mortar is not dry may remove enough by slicing out slabs to neutralize the prior heavy allocation(s) just depending. If you recall I at one point a few days ago had my stop set but a decent blip came and reset for repositioning. My objective is to be positioned in for the correction/reversal should it develop before a stop takes it out.

Tightening Bias In Play But No Hike N/T -FNZ

Despite RBNZ making no outlook statement at OCR review, First NZ Capital economist Jason Wong thinks "a tightening bias is still in play," though he adds after two rate hikes, recent NZD strength it's not a strong bias to tighten further at this stage; "We think that monetary policy now enters a holdings pattern," says Wong, adding that run of economic activity data is likely to deteriorate following strong run, so RBNZ is expected to adopt a "wait-and-see" approach. "One shouldn't rule out the chance of another tightening later in the year, but at this juncture it's not our central forecast."

sorry if bothering you - last Q - I'm interested as I've been averaging before but not very successfully.
so am I getting it correctly the approach:
at step1 - buy 1 unit
> down step 2 - buy 2 units
>> down step 3 - buy 3 or 4 (martingale style) units
-----here is a little correction Up - you lighten say 2 units
> then down step 4 - you buy again 2 units and start again the same process after every correction where you unload some ... I think I figure it but I might also be wrong - GLGT!!

No problem. Well yes and no but ultimately not.
What I mean is that my system gave a signal to slowly and steady as she goes allocate into a long position. So I did what my system called for. Now had I known for a fact that there were some 3 figures to be taken gratis I would be the first one in line. Since we cannot trade backwards (except for that one manipulator using indicative rates) we have to trade for the future. If it had charged up 10 figures what would we say now?

Ultimately, the system is still giving the signal so will trade those odds as we won't talk about what comes next until after it happens (All launch signals aside.) This is intended as an allocation in for a position not the typical plunk it down and quickly pull it out like the other fast strike trades of the past (still doing those too but will spare the forum any reads on those while this is still playing out). This strategy is something I have done many times for allocations albeit usually not as long of a process as this time- go figure. LOL Although it could develop into any scenario in the future- Pulling out all the blocks at once for any number of reasons is always a possibility. Either way discipline is the key. Win or lose all we can do is plan the trade and trade the plan.

Spanish property slump set to claim thousands of British victims
25th April 2007
Fears that a Spanish property bust could claim thousands of British victims were raised today following a massive slump in the country's real estate market.

Panic selling of shares in Spanish property firms yesterday signalled an end to the over-inflated housing boom, with price falls a real possibility, experts said.
It will come as bad news to British holiday home owners, with an estimated 250,000 Spanish properties believed to be in the hands of UK citizens.
But economists at Lombard Street Research warned that the housing market in Spain is about implode.

Thanks for your views.
I guess your market is much the same as elsewhere, based on historical annual salary and wages income ratios property is overvalued.
I recall reading somewhere that Spanish property had increased in value in percentage terms at a far greater rate than larger markets such as the UK, USA and France. More recently I saw some figures where it was said 200k more units were being built than the market demand. I guess that's where you get people owing 3 to 4 unoccupied premises.
If there is a bubble it would be worth watching to see whether other European markets suffer such as Ireland.

The Official Cash Rate (OCR) will increase by 25 basis points to 7.75 percent.

Recent indicators confirm that the resurgence in economic activity that began in late 2006 has continued over recent months, with domestic demand continuing to expand strongly. As we noted in March, demand is being fuelled by a buoyant housing market, increases in government expenditure, a rising terms of trade, ongoing net immigration, and a robust labour market.

The lift in domestic demand is placing further pressure on already-stretched productive resources. Firms report that capacity is very stretched and that they are again experiencing increased difficulty in finding both skilled and unskilled staff. Consistent with these pressures, non-tradables inflation has remained persistently strong and has recently shown signs of re-acceleration.

The trade-weighted exchange rate has risen further, which will exert some downward pressure on medium-term inflation. The exchange rate is now at levels that are both exceptional by historical standards, and unjustified on the basis of medium-term fundamentals. Parts of the export sector continue to face challenging conditions, but the recent sharp lift in world dairy prices is expected to provide a boost to incomes in that sector and tourist arrivals are continuing to grow.

There has already been a recent rise in fixed mortgage interest rates. This further increase in the OCR is aimed at ensuring that inflation outcomes remain consistent with achieving the target of 1 to 3 percent inflation on average over the medium term.

I wonder if those wishing to exit their kiwi longs (on basis of rate hike) have been doing so thru AUD/NZD. this has bounced too far IMO heheh, taking out my 2nd short at 1.1196 at break even.
Given lower likelihood of rate rise now one might have expected NZD/USD to have fallen further.

Also, IMHO it will crash like never before and i will become the king of real estate in Spain 8-)

I don t kow Syd. And your guess is a good if not better than mine. I look at it that way.
1/ When the average wage is around 17000 Euros, plus wage increase are about 1-3% /year and that house prices rise by 10-20% / year, something has to give.
2/you have to add historical behaviour from the people, by this i mean they still tend to believe that houses are the best investments they can make in general
3/renting a house in Spain is not part of their culture IMHo
4/I know people with 3 or 4 houses empty. Un real !
5/to finish it up. Regarding the the stock market. The main indice is the IMEX35. In the UK it is the FTSE 100. My poijnt is that the stock market is small and concentrated in a few companies. That exarcebates the move one way or the other.

Madrid, over recent days there have been a few postings on the forum about the price of property development stocks in Spain. There was particular mention made of Astroc Med. which fell from EUR 45 to EUR 16 in the space of a week.
There has been talk of a property bubble in Spain bursting.
In your opinion do you see property prices falling and if so do you have a concern that this may flow to other European markets that have experienced large capital gains over recent years?

April 25 (Bloomberg) -- The Canadian dollar reached the highest in almost seven months, bolstered by a falling U.S. dollar and increasing prices for commodities, which account for 54 percent of exports.

The currency rose to the highest since Sept. 29 against the U.S. dollar after a U.S. government report showed new home sales rose less than economists expected last month, raising speculation the Federal Reserve may cut borrowing costs in the third quarter. The report also dropped the U.S. dollar to its record low against the euro.

``Commodities still look great, and we've also got a weakening U.S. dollar,'' said Steve Butler, director of foreign exchange trading in Toronto at Scotia Capital Inc. ``Everything's been working for Canada.''

Koukoulas at TD Securities said the market is pricing in a 75 percent chance that the Reserve Bank of New Zealand will raise rates tomorrow and a ``break lower is likely'' in the currency should policy makers hold rates.

In a Bloomberg News survey of economists, eight of 14 expect borrowing costs to stay unchanged.

Trade-Weighted Index

The central bank's traded-weighted index for the New Zealand dollar measures the currency against the Australian and U.S. dollars, the British pound, the yen and the euro.

The gauge was at 72.1 yesterday compared with 69.7 at the end of last month, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand's Web site shows.

A rate increase by the central bank may see the New Zealand dollar rise through 75 U.S. cents and 73 on a trade weighted basis, according to a TD Securities report dated April 20.

Strength in the currency will further hurt New Zealand exporters and see inflation head lower over the next few quarters as imports prices decline, Koukoulas wrote in the report.

Sanford Ltd., New Zealand's largest publicly traded fishing company, said on April 16 that first-half profit fell because the strong currency was ``decimating'' earnings and resulting in foreign-exchange losses.

Sheep farmers are being ``crucified by the high value of the New Zealand dollar,'' Keith Kelly, chairman of the meat section of Federated Farmers Inc., said on April 16.

``Over many years, the RBNZ has shown it is reluctant to hike into currency strength and indeed, has often used the currency strength as a reason not to hike,'' said Koukoulas.

[17:03 EUR/JPY: Impact of Strong EUR Noted] San Francisco, April 25. EUR/JPY is being underpinned by USD/JPY gains this afternoon as the USD gets a lift by the push back above 13,000 on the DJIA and the steady recovery in US bond yields.
However, EUR/JPY gains continue to be rebuffed by offers near 162.00. The yield spread for EUR bunds over JGBs continues to support the cross with the spread at 325 bp today, up from 311 bp a month ago. But, there are increasing signs that the EUR strength is causing some pain. Earlier this morning, German economic minister Glos said that the local economy is coping with the strength of the EUR, but another rise would be a risk for the local economy, calling 1.35 a realistic rate. Luxury goods group LVMH announced that in order to offset the effect of the EUR rise, it will have to increase prices, with the company sales
reduced by 6% last quarter on the EUR impact. Air Liquide reported that the EUR had a 3.7% negative impact on the quarter. On the other hand in Japan, Honda reported today a positive impact from the EUR strength with revenue up 24.5% in Europe compared to only a 2.8% gain in North America. Honda is assuming EUR/JPY at 152 for the first half of the fiscal year.
A break above 162.00 targets 162.40 and the recent high on the cross. Support is at 161.75.

Beige Book - Definition
This book is produced roughly two weeks before the monetary policy meetings of the Federal Open Market Committee. On each occasion, a different Fed district bank compiles anecdotal evidence on economic conditions from each of the 12 Federal Reserve districts.

Why Do Investors Care?
This report on economic conditions is used at FOMC meetings, where the Fed sets interest rate policy. These meetings occur roughly every six weeks and are the single most influential event for the markets. Market participants speculate for weeks in advance about the possibility of an interest rate change that could be announced upon the end of these meetings. If the outcome is different from expectations, the impact on the markets can be dramatic and far-reaching.

If the Beige Book portrays an overheating economy or inflationary pressures, the Fed may be more inclined to raise interest rates in order to moderate the economic pace. Conversely, if the Beige Book portrays economic difficulties or recessionary conditions, the Fed may see the need to lower interest rates in order to stimulate activity.

Since the Beige Book is released two weeks before each FOMC meeting, investors can see for themselves at least one of the many indicators which Fed officials will use to determine interest rate policy, and can position their portfolios accordingly.

Subprime `Liar Loans' Fuel Housing Bust With $1 Billion Fraud

By Bob Ivry

April 25 (Bloomberg) -- Cheating on mortgage applications is so widespread and so seldom punished that it's fueling an increase in foreclosures that will prolong the housing slump, said Robert W. Russell, counsel to the director of the Office of Thrift Supervision, which oversees savings and loans.

Borrowers and brokers commit fraud when they exaggerate the applicant's income, qualifying the borrower for a home he otherwise couldn't afford. Such fraud robbed lenders of an estimated $1 billion last year, according to data collected by the Washington-based Mortgage Bankers Association and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Offers are scattered from 2.0060 to 2.0150 but small stops are eyed near 2.0070 near-term, dealers note. Bids are eyed at 2.0035 and 2.0005 near-term. censored[IFR Forex Watch]

A few of us here have watched with amusement then bemusement and dare I say something approaching admiration at your CAD strategy. It's not for everyone - but certainly your allocations have always been timely. I did not have the pockets to follow - but I have kept an eye on your activities - and now have a small long at 1.1165.

Good luck (if "luck" has anything to do with it) I tend to the view that your (posted LONG TERM) strategy will pay off.

Ok- Here it is. Have added in incremental steps and exponential steps at certain "hot zones" (mentioned this in the past already) When/if a bounce comes I take the heat off in slabs to free capital for further building (as seen here for the last week or so).
So- Yesterday ave was 1.1217 (as posted) added 10% to that buy buying "some" 1.1188's. New ave = 1.1214
Then on a triple down (As seen previously here) heavy exponential allocation into a hot zone bought new allocation 20% 1.1166, 20% 1,1171, (more more more) 40% 1.1156 all with new portfolio allocation at 66.666% (ave 1.1161)

Take 33.33333333333% 1.1214 add that 66.666666666666%* 1.1161 and the magical sum =1.116749

PARIS (Thomson Financial) - Francois Bayrou, candidate of the centrist-right (UDF) party for the French presidency, who was eliminated in the first round with a score of 18.5 pct, said he will not advise his supporters to back either Nicolas Sarkozy or Segolene Royal in the May 6 run-off.

The announcement is significant because Bayrou is thought to have attracted natural voters of both Sarkozy's UMP centre-right party and of Royal's socialist party, the PS, who were put off by the personality or proposals of the candidates.

He also announced he is forming a new, centrist, 'democratic party'.

A new Ipsos/Dell poll published today showed Sarkozy is set to beat Royal in the second round with 53.5 pct of the vote against 46.5 pct.

It said 39 pct of Bayrou voters will back Royal and 35 pct Sarkozy, with the remainder not responding or saying they will abstain.

Bayrou attacked both Royal's 'statist' programme and Sarkozy's divisive social policies.

China Humbles U.S., Japan in Asian Charm Game: William Pesek

By William Pesek

April 25 (Bloomberg) -- China's economy has humbled many smart people in recent years.

It has defied those arguing it would slow, those predicting a hard landing, those saying its currency would surge and those concerned that social unrest would shake Asia's second-biggest economy to its core.

Yet no one has been more outmaneuvered by China than the world's two biggest economic powers: the U.S. and Japan.

Due at 10 am are US new home sales expected to have risen 4.7% to 890 mln units last month after two consecutive monthly declines of 4.0% and 16% in February and January. Yesterday's larger than expected drop in existing home sales was received relatively by the dollar at a time when the currency came off its session highs. A positive reading in new home sales combined with an increase in new home sales could especially jolt USDJPY higher amid rising equity market optimism, specifically with the Dow chasing the unprecedented 13,000 mark. simsi

Sure and sorry if it came across the wrong way was not trying to suggest anything otherwise. My only point is that to me data does not create logic nor reason for price but just the opposite.

The logic for my actions is to build into this position block by block then re-adjust (many times thus far) as necessary to keep the foundation firm. Obviously, looking back this trend has been longer (but not necessarily deeper) than I had anticipated. But for the Loonert I prefer to allocate in to a position vs jump in for the hellfire quick srike patterns. Think of it as if I had (but don't) several yards to invest. This is the process I'd prefer. Have explained myself to exhaustion here in the archives. Just consider this different than a scalp trade (even though I may take some size off on small rallies to re-align the tower).

G/u should start its decent down in coming days/week.. So many people desperate to keep it up over 2.0000.. Its far too expensive for people to bother.. Watch out for a carry unwind also..

Forex - Canadian dollar brushes off strong US data to hit near 6-mth high vs usd
Wednesday, April 25, 2007 9:22:00 AM


LONDON (Thomson Financial) - The Canadian dollar brushed off strong US durable goods data to hit its highest level in nearly six months against its US counterpart as the market concluded that Canada is well-placed to benefit from a stronger US economy.

Figures released this afternoon showed US durable goods surged by 3.4 pct over the month, way above the 2.3 pct rise analysts had expected.

Immediately after the data, the US dollar rose to 1.1208 cad from 1.1196 just before the figures were released, only to quickly rebound to a low of 1.1183 cad. This is the Canadian dollar's strongest level since the end of October last year.

While other major currencies have fallen against the dollar in the wake of the data, the Canadian dollar has benefited as the market concluded that a stronger US economy may allow the Bank of Canada to raise interest rates.

'If the US economy holds its ground, the BoC may be forced to focus on inflation sooner than expected,' giving the Canadian dollar 'a cushion other currencies may not enjoy,' said Thomson IFR Markets analyst Jamie Coleman.

He noted that the Bank of Canada has singled out US weakness as its main downside risk.

Yesterday, the Bank of Canada left interest rates on hold at 4.25 pct.

talking of mistakes -
8-)
The decision at the Bank of Norway to keep rates unchanged was surprising and the fact that Bloomberg made a reporting mistake by indicating a hike initially lead to massive intraday volatility (probably never seen the like in EURNOK). If EURNOK breaks 8.2130, it is bound to test the 8.35-40 area again, but we think such a break is unlikely, since the Bank of Norway has to hike rates at the next meeting.

Germany's Glos says a further strengthening of euro could hurt German economy
Wednesday, April 25, 2007 7:42:00 AM


BERLIN (Thomson Financial) - German Economy Minister Michael Glos said the local economy is coping well with the current strength of the euro against the dollar but not if the currency appreciates any further.

Speaking at a news conference to unveil the latest government forecasts, Glos said, 'The German economy is apparently coping well with the current euro-dollar rate.'

'But if it were to rise very strongly again, that would mean risks (for the local economy),' he said, referring to the euro.

He said a euro at 1.35 usd would be a 'realistic' rate.

Demand for expensive goods rose during March in a broad-based increase that was better than expected, and a gauge of spending by businesses rebounded.

Orders for durable goods increased by 3.4% last month to a seasonally adjusted $214.85 billion, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. Durables, which are goods designed to last at least three years, rose 2.4% in February, revised from a previously estimated 1.7% increase.

Were in a wierd one on this: There are arguments for strong and weak dollar reaction to the data whatever it is. The driver will probably be interest rate expectations, but one also has to consider strong figures imply a potentially stronger econ and soft landing. It will, I believe, be too murky to determine US yield direction, hence holding rates is the most hedged bet in the face of uncertainty. The source of movement will, I think, be outside the US as the directions there are more clear...esp the UK. imho anyway. But we will know soon enough. gl to you as I always always enjoy your contributions.

TAIPEI (AP)--A senior Taiwanese official said Wednesday the island would have to fight alone for 10-14 days before the United States came to its aid in the event of an attack from rival China. In the simulation, no American intervention was envisioned.

Answering a question in the Taiwanese Legislature, Wang said Taiwan believes that the U.S. would intervene on its behalf if China attacked with impunity, but that such intervention might not be forthcoming if Taiwanese action provoked Beijing.

China has threatened to invade if the self-governing island makes its de facto independence permanent.

The two sides split amid civil war in 1949, and Beijing still regards Taiwan as part of its territory.

25/4/07  3:15  [USD] Preview: New Home Sales
[USD] The Commerce Department's new home sales report will be released 25 April at 1000 EDT/1400 GMT. We anticipate that sales will increase to 865K for the month.
After two consecutive months of falling purchasing activity, the new home series should see a net increase of 17K units to 865K for the month, which is below the three-month average below 925K. The problem, as we have stated with respect to the existing home sales sector, is not so much a function of activity but one of inventory problems and future downward pressure on pricing. The inventory levels in the new home series currently resides at 8.1 months, which for all intents and purposes has reached critical levels. Prices in the sector will have to see a further downward adjustment to bring existing stocks back to sustainable levels. Thus we do urge our clients to recognize that the macro activity in the sector will continue to mask the regional and sub regional problems. For example Miami-Dade county in Florida will have 25,800 new units arrive on the market over the next two years, which will cause local prices to adjust in a market where obtaining insurance due to potential severe weather related disruptions and state regulatory activity is becoming increasingly difficult. There will have to be a long period where supply in a select number of regions will have to dry up and building activity curtailed before the new housing sector can reach anything resembling equilibrium.

Has Spain's property bubble just burst? -
Spain, a whopping 96% of mortgages are on floating rates, rather than fixes - so every rise hurts almost every mortgage holder.

Rising interest rates, a hugely overvalued and highly speculative property market, and massive consumer debt - it doesn’t make for a pretty picture. And we’re not the only ones who think so.

Bernard Connolly of Banque AIG doesn’t pull any punches when he tells The Telegraph: “Spain is going to face the very direst of economic circumstances: a cycle of recession, deflation and widespread private sector default - a depression in fact. This stock market slide is not just a ‘correction’. It has a very, very long way to go.”

TOKYO (Nikkei)--China has become Japan's largest trading partner, surpassing the U.S. for the first time since the end of World War II, shows a preliminary report on trade statistics for fiscal 2006 released Wednesday by the Ministry of Finance.

Trade with China, excluding Hong Kong, rose 16.5% year on year to 25,427.6 billion yen, while that with the U.S. climbed 10.3% to 25,160.8 billion yen.

China has been the nation's largest trading partner since fiscal 2004 when Hong Kong is included.

Both exports to and imports from China hit all-time highs, supported by stronger exports of parts for Japanese manufacturers in China and greater imports of clothing and electronics.

Japan's global trade surplus grew 16.4% to 9,054 billion yen on strong exports of cars to the U.S. Surging crude oil prices worldwide pushed up the value of imports, but that was more than offset by export growth due to the weak yen.

The country's trade surplus with the U.S. grew 13.5% to 9,096 billion yen on rising exports of cars and electronic parts for semiconductors, the second-largest amount ever following the level recorded in fiscal 1985.

"For the U.S., trade deficits with China and the European Union are bigger than that with Japan, and therefore the figure is unlikely to have the same kind of impact seen at the time of fierce trade friction between the two countries," a Finance Ministry official said.

Japan's overall trade surplus in March rose 73.9% year on year to a record 1,633.5 billion yen.

Imports from China that month fell below the year-earlier level for the first time since April 2002, while exports expanded 15.1% to a record 1,119.8 billion yen. Meanwhile, Japan's current-account balance with the neighboring country moved into the black for the first time in nearly three years.

IMF More Closely Watching Yen Carry Impact On Emerging Mkts Takashi Nakamichi
The International Monetary Fund is monitoring more closely the impact of yen-carry trades on asset markets in developing countries and might raise the issue in its annual talks with certain countries, IMF officials said.
The international lender is concerned that emerging markets aren't as big and well-equipped as advanced markets to handle sudden capital outflows that could ensue if investors rush out of those trades, they said.
The comments follow similar concern expressed by the IMF about carry trades in recent reports, including the World Economic Outlook, and signal growing international unease about the risks posed by the build up of these positions.
"We are watchful of how any such flows may be flowing in to emerging markets, since a reversal (of yen-carry trades) or volatility could have greater effects on these rather than more mature markets," Dan Citrin, deputy director of the IMF's Asia and Pacific Department, recently told Dow Jones Newswires via email.
The IMF's stance underscores how wary the international community has become about the magnitude of yen-carry trades and the impact that a potential unwinding of those positions could have on emerging markets.
Estimates among private-sector analysts of those trades vary widely. But some say there're as much as $1 trillion of yen-carry trade positions worldwide if borrowed yen and Japanese savings are combined. And they've warned that if economic shocks ignite a reversal in those money flows, that could deal a blow to emerging markets like India and Vietnam, whose recent prosperity is partly traceable to yen-funded investments.
IMF On Guard Against Yen-Carry Trade Unwinding
The IMF has previously signaled its concerns about a link between yen-carry trades and emerging markets, as well. In its global financial stability report issued earlier this month, the fund said the worldwide equity-price plunges and temporary yen surges seen in late February and early March "highlighted risks to emerging markets that are overly reliant on portfolio inflows."
"A volatility shock could lead to the rapid unwinding of carry trades," the report said. "The impact of such a volatility shock would have a significant effect on emerging markets."
The IMF made similar comments in its recent World Economic Outlook. Brazil, Hungary, South Africa, Turkey, and "some Asian economies" are among the developing nations luring yen-carry trades, the IMF said in the financial stability report. Private analysts say Japanese investors' buying through mutual funds is helping inflate stock prices in China, India, Vietnam and the Philippines.
The second IMF official also pointed to Vietnam's equity market as a suspected destination of yen-carry trade funds. The Southeast Asian nation's main stock index rocketed 145% in 2006, and although it has recently dropped sharply, the index still stands more than 20% higher it was at the start of the year. The IMF has had difficulty in determining which traders are using carry trades and where the funds are flowing, the official said. "There are few clear statistics."
IMF May Discuss Carry Trades With Emerging Markets
Many market participants say that over the past few years, global investors have increasingly borrowed cheap yen to snap up everything from New Zealand time deposits to U.S. bonds to emerging stocks to even European real estate.
This view is so widespread that traders blame all kinds of market swings on adjustments of yen-carry trades.
Still, Citrin said the fund is monitoring yen-carry trades under the framework of its regular surveillance activity, not through any new special entities.
"We are not doing any formal monitoring of so-called 'carry-trade' activities nor are we setting up a special panel whose sole purpose is to look at carry-trades," Citrin said. Also, yen-carry trades are "just one element" of the global financial markets, and "we should not get 'carried away' by focusing exclusively on one element," he said.

Yet, the global lender may raise the issue in two-party dialogues.

"During dialogues that are held under Article IV, we may have debates (about the matter) with the Bank of Japan, or New Zealand's central bank," the second IMF official said. "If we see a possibility that other countries besides New Zealand are being affected by those trades, similar discussions may be held (with them)."

Citrin also hinted at the possibility of IMF talks on the issue.

"To the extent that there are relevant policy considerations, they would be discussed with the relevant authorities in that context," he said.

on the other platform the gap is not shown - however typically theese gaps are filled before the Initial move is resumed... so maybe you might be right about the pullback to 1.3620 before the High is challenged..

MADRID (Dow Jones)--Shares of Spain's largest real estate and construction companies opened mixed Wednesday, following Tuesday's selloff on fears that the decade-long building boom, which has supported one of the best-performing eurozone economies, could be about to crack.Citigroup analysts said in a note to investors that construction companies such as Sacyr-Vallehermoso SA (SYV.MC) and Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas SA (FCC.MC), or FCC, are most exposed to a downturn in the Spanish housing market.

UK bank trader says new EUR/USD highs above 1.3670 are unlikely ahead of the 0800 GMT release of Ifo on the basis that nobody wants to be caught long at all-time highs, then see a below-forecast Ifo print trigger a sell-off that leaves them high and dry. Alternatively the trader says buying any pre-data dips toward 1.3630-20, with a stop below 1.3580 seems a safer bet, although he would look to lock in some profit just above 1.3670 as there is bound to be some post-high profit taking.

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.

Yen Gains on Speculation Investors Repatriating Bond Earnings

By Stanley White and Ron Harui

April 25 (Bloomberg) -- The yen advanced for a third day against the euro on speculation Japanese investors will bring home funds invested in European bonds.

France pays 19.5 billion euros ($26.6 billion) in coupon and principal on its government debt today, some of which may go to Japanese investors. The yen gained against 15 of 16 most- actively traded currencies speculation the Bank of Japan's semi- annual economic outlook, due April 27, will signal plans to raise interest rates.

``There's talk that Japanese investors are repatriating some of the proceeds from the French bond payments,'' said Yuji Saito, a senior currency dealer at Societe Generale in Tokyo. ``It's a positive for the yen,'' which may rise to 161.00 per euro and 118.00 versus the dollar today, he said.

Don't know, but it's riding alonga nice set of narrow rails at about 15-20 pips a day, down... There is a minor resistance from last year at 1.1170, or there abouts....

Funded Carry Fatigue May Set In - UBS
Price action in JPY-funded carry trades is looking tired and vulnerable to disappointment, says UBS, with softer inflation data in key high-yielding economy (Australia) putting dent in sentiment; "also, Japan has a raft of key data on Friday with the BOJ's semiannual outlook report also due, ahead of next week's Golden Week holidays. As such, we may be seeing stress on carry trades as positions are lightened ahead of this key event risk." Is scope for renewed pressure on carry trades, with some combination of volatility in Japan rate expectations, pickup in FX volatility and/or renewed risk aversion expected to damage carry positions in coming months. As such, keeps 3-month USD/JPY target of 116

gbpjpy looking heavy. If it cant hold above 237.00 figure there is little in the way until 236.00 and then the neckline at 235.50-60. Could be a sign of something disolving....

Unwinding of carry trades in high-yielding currencies like the GBP as well as AUD, NZD after Tuesday's soft Australian inflation report shows how ready carry traders are to head for the door on news impacting rate differentials. But in an increasingly familiar pattern, investors reversed unwind shortly after, using CPI data to take profits rather than as sign that carry trades less profitable. Given market's sensitivity, strategy likely to continue, analysts say, so carry positions may be in store for additional mini unwinds and rewinds in coming months. Market uncertain over U.S. economy, Fed policy, staying power of carry trades; "Price action in the yen-funded carry trades is looking tired and vulnerable to disappointment," says Daniel Katzive at UBS; "We continue to see scope for renewed pressure on carry trades" due to "some combination of volatility in Japan rate expectations, a pick up in currency market volatility, and/or renewed financial market risk aversion" in coming months.

AUD/USD (Updated) : As shown in my monthly cycle charts the market is trying to tackle the monthly cycle normal upper limit at 0.8377, if it fails to hold the next target is the extreme level at 0.8560. On the other hand speculative selling pressure will increase if the market retreats and penetrates through 0.8316.

Japan's March merchandise trade surplus expanded by a much faster-than-expected rate, rising 73.9% from a year earlier to Y1.633 trillion, indicating that exports will support growth in the first quarter, the Finance Ministry Finance said Wednesday.

The surplus comes after January's unexpected shrinkage in the deficit and February's surplus.

Economists surveyed by Dow Jones and Nikkei estimated on average the surplus would come to Y1.360 trillion in March, expanding 44.8% on year.

Japan's trade surplus with the U.S. increased 1.4% to Y805.29 billion in March from a year earlier, the ministry said, while trade with China surprisingly turned into a surplus of Y12.33B.
