Fed's Yellen: Upside Risks To Inflation Outlook Have Grown
A top official of the U.S. Federal Reserve has grown more concerned over the inflation outlook, but stopped short of saying the situation requires a central bank rate hike to quell price pressures.

Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco President Janet Yellen said Thursday that "the inflation situation remains uncertain and, in particular, there are upside risks to my outlook, especially having to do with the situation in labor markets."

FX Asia: NZ Dlr Muted Rally May Signal Carry Trade Lethargy

Patrick Bennett
An only muted rally in the New Zealand dollar despite a hike in the official cash rate and a warning from the central bank that the currency is unjustifiably strong, adds to caution that carry trades may be reaching a limit.

Though the warning by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand is unlikely to lead to market intervention by the central bank in the short term, the remote prospect of action will have investors questioning how much further the currency can rise.

That questioning would add to what appears to be a recent stalling of carry trades, not just in the New Zealand dollar but in other favored currencies.

Major carry-trade pairs, including the Australian and New Zealand dollars against the Japanese yen, reached multiyear highs last week, but there is a growing sense among both traders and analysts that these trades may be reaching some near-term exhaustion. For the New Zealand dollar, the latest interest rate hike from the RBNZ boosted the interest-rate differential between the local currency and lower yielding currencies such as the yen.

But the kiwi, as the currency is known, was whipped around in choppy trading because of the central bank's warning that the currency is too strong.

"The exchange rate is now at levels that are both exceptional by historical standards, and unjustified on the basis of medium-term fundamentals," the RBNZ said.

Another factor that may slow the advance of carry trades is the prospect that as bearishness toward the U.S. dollar intensifies, investors will increasingly look to currencies such as the Japanese yen that are considered undervalued.

A rise in the yen alongside a slower pace of appreciation of currencies such as the Australian and New Zealand dollar would contribute to a slower pace of gains for carry positions, making them less attractive.

"We continue to see scope for renewed pressure on carry trades, with some combination of volatility in Japan rate expectations, a pick up in foreign exchange market volatility, and/or renewed financial market risk aversion expected to damage carry positions again at some stage in coming months," said UBS's Davies.

I hope the usd/jpy follows closely. It seems that it really hasnt had the liquidity these days as the e/y or g/y. I know that it never really has moved as much as them but especially these days. But it definately has been leading the both of them in whatever direction. I still see a large USD gain across the board continuing. GL GT

Talk RBNZ Had Checked FX Rates Hurt NZD - ANZ

Rumors that RBNZ had checked FX rates in the market overnight saw NZD slip through short-term support levels, says ANZ Bank in report; adds while RBNZ's statement yesterday met 2 of 4 intervention criteria, doesn't think actual action by central bank imminent. "Although most analysts believe intervention is unlikely, the market appears to have heeded the warning." Says ultimately, NZD will be driven by domestic data, fortunes of USD - factors which RBNZ has no control over.

USD strength and slightly lower commodity prices weighed on AUD/USD pushing it down to around 0.8270 from 0.8332 in London, says John Kyriakopoulos, senior currency strategist at NabCapital. A further modest pullback is on the cards due to narrowing of Australia/U.S. 2-year bond spread to 148 bps from 163 this week. 0.8050/0.8100 will limit slide for now

from GVI earlier Thursday...

On Friday, Japan will see a slew of data ahead of the Golden Week holidays next week. They include: February retail sales, February Nationwide CPI (see -0.2% y/y vs. -0.2%), February unemployment and preliminary February industrial output. The BOJ will also hold a one-day policy meeting. No policy change is expected. And the BOJ monthly report will be closely followed as well for any changes in the official outlook for the economy.

RE BOJ tomorrow. We are sticking to our view that rates will not be hiked BEFORE August. Whether the BOJ hikes as early as in August (post-July Upper House elections) remains to be seen...

CPI due Friday could be flat to negative y/y. Core and headline CPI has been running BELOW the BOJ target rate floor..

Anecdotal stuff… “We hear from a reader in Japan that the Japan Food Service Association reports stunningly high revenues for restaurants, with high-class restaurants seeing a 14% rise in revenues in March for the third month in a row. Even fast food is up 7.1%. This is a back-of-the-envelope estimate of the true state of domestic demand. The government keeps promising that domestic demand is going to catch up and become robust (feeding inflation), but then the actual numbers are modest to disappointing. The restaurant story indicates that consumer optimism is higher than we thought. The point is that we should be watching out for a surprise in the data that will trigger expectations of a faster rate rising process than most analysts see today (one in Sept or Oct and that’s it).”

I like to see here how so many so mad at US and their President Bush for all the prosperity they bring to the world.
Pathetic and weak attacks "Oh I see him smiling and dancing on tv last night." Am sure he is glad that you cared enough to take the time to watch.

Dumb dumbs with communist minds don't realize that the President does not make business great in democracy- the smart business people do. That is why the US is the most powerful nation- it's the free people not some rediculous politician like worthless communists.

Me thinks those stinky thumbs are because they were short the mighty US companies as their index goes up and up. Keep laughing and playing silly games as you fight prosperity.

Corporate America is still spending big time, just increasingly outside the U.S. ...................virtually every major company is trying to reduce costs and get closer to fast-growing markets by spreading manufacturing operations and research facilities around the world. As a result, a U.S.-centric view of capital spending, says Steven R. Appleton, CEO of Micron, is “almost meaningless.”

slice and dice as you will, market is all about expectations. And the CBs know it. That is why they keep yakking about vigillance. They are vigillant about any dragging or drifting of what they refer to as "anchored". A while ago BoC Dodge revealed that "all of us CB ankers worry that risk spreads appear to be very narrow". As they should.

Simple chart reading suggests that 1.1210 Shall provide some initial resistance to the loonie.
========================

The above is still valid. It is break or make level in my model.

Short term view eur/usd: This pair has moved into the O/B areas and is due for a correction. The key supports are now awaiting around the 3580-90 and 3510-20 area with the main support still strong around the 3350-60 area. It is still buy on failed dips but a quick sell signal to test the main support could be around the 3510-20 area. I can't see this pair not breaking and closing over the all time high but for now a correction is in order IMHO. Peace and GT

Critical turning points for the dollar indicating that the daily chart trends will move in its favour are IMO:
Cable break of 1.9817 11 Apr High
USDJPY break of 119.85 16 Apr high
GBPJPY break of 235.21 19 Apr low
Only in the USDJPY is the result still up for grabs. In the other two trending markets I would say the party is over.

just looked at Ashraf Laidi's daily analysis - he notes 1.3570 a base for new 1.37 challenge
also sees risk of GBPUSD to this latest S at 1.9880..

I also like the KISS approach - will try to draw some fibo levels to figure some possible correction levels - however a profit taking is smtg that can't be ruled out...

last week there were some reports of Fib turn dates - it might happen with a week lag... I see weak USD is in favor to US so the LT trend will rule - comments are welcome.

hello, I'm not really good in trading timing - however I have 3 points - just post them for comment:
- the all-time high was reached and no follow-thru
- looking 15min chart we can see smtg like a H&S formation
- it's been 300 pips no turn back ride from 1.13 - 1.3660 - so a profit taking is due I guess (can't really know as never been in the big firms - sure their timeframes are much different) - but as Alimin pointed USDX is making nice reversal (Morning Star)

Hopes of a new record high in [EUR/USD] have been dashed again with an overbought market paring back on some longs and trade back under 1.3600. Initial good sized buying out of Holland was the signal for some corrective action, the price lower on completion of a large buy order, and this raised a few eyebrows amongst the Euro laden intraday market. Eur/Usd sales then followed the rumour inspired slump of the Nzd and saw stops tripped in succession to the 1.3599. The emergence of sovereign Usd sellers elsewhere, and Middle East bottom picking in Eur/Usd then turned trade 10-15 ticks higher. A heavy tone persists and whilst record highs still beckon, there are more stops to be had below 1.3580. UK clearer sales have taken trade below 1.3600, with rumours of semi-official demand under the figure now circulating. IGM

not to quibble but if the mkt reacts strongly to weekly UIC, it would be making mtns out of molehills as this number is extremely volatile and subject to all sorts of weather, seasonal and local vagaries. That said, I wouldn't surprise since traders seem to be reacting to almost any US data, even the second and third tier events like UIC.

Musings: The upcomming jobless claims figures due to come out in under two hours may have something to do with the unwinding of short positions. Perhaps with the mark self-aware of its short-overhang doesnt want to get caught with a low figure as expectations are mediating around 330k. If we get somthing below 300 the shorts are going to get even more hammered.

What we have here is one person's interpretation of events. I don't pretend to know what is going on here, I find it difficult enough to understand what's happening closer to home. Its just that if we have worsening property market in Sydney, no one is going to say NSW is going to withdraw from the AUD and adopt its own currency, while our population is greater than NZ, its not an option. For Spain or for that matter any other European country that is a different story. It will always be an option to withdraw.
What is clear is that ECB has a difficult job to mange the various needs of the different countries that have adopted the euro.
Talk of a depression in Spain, or a ERM type collapse, is premature to sat the least when they admit property prices are still rising, although while commencements exceed demand by 200k per annum that will not be the case for long.

MADRID – The average mortgage rose to EUR 150,146 – an increase of 11.5 percent compared with the cost the same time a year before, according to figures released on Thursday.

The National Institute of Statistics (INE) said figures showed the average mortgage had also risen by 1.9 percent compared with in January this year.

The average interest paid on mortgages in Spain was 4.41 percent over 26 years with savings banks. With banks, the figure was 4.39 percent over 25 years.

The number of new mortgages which were taken out in February was 153,726 – a 4.36 percent fall compared with the same period the year before.

The capital tied up in mortgages was EUR 27.3 billion – or 10.67 percent more than the year before in February 2006.

Ninety-eight percent of new mortgages were taken out with a variable interest rate. The Euribor, one of the standards used to regulate interest rates on mortgage payments in Spain, was the most commonly used, with 85.9 of mortgages fixed to this.

well just to add to the confusion - here are 2 reports just released on the newswire:
> 1014 GMT [Dow Jones] Before EUR/JPY printed a fresh record high Thursday, BNP Paribas had issued a technical note which looked for a test of resistance between 162.40-65, before a retreat towards 160.95. Well the cross traded to 162.55 and has subsequently declined to 162.20, so has a top now been seen? Looking at daily indicators the bank says these are turning downside and close to giving a bearish signal, while the hourly indicators are signaling resistance.

>1009 GMT [Dow Jones] Cable gaps 25 ticks on the downside, trader says no particular reason evident for the sharp drop. Cable now at 1.9960, a full cent lower on the day, stops are reported below 1.9950.

Players are scratching heads and looking for news items which do not appear to be in place for a wave of [USD] buying. We heard plenty of NZ rumours (a US investment house started the selling and the rumour!) and saw broad Jpy stop tripping. The Yen slide coincided with relatively large Yuan losses also. Asian contacts note Usd/Cny has had its best one-day gain since Aug. Of course, inevitably players are talking of Eur/Usd and Gbp/Usd's failure to go on and make new ground. Certainly, these headlines struggled to take out next key levels at 1.3670 and 2.0064/70 (which we previously discussed) and could have been vulnerable to the Usd squeeze. We will refrain from turning overly Usd bullish for now below 81.70/75 area in the Usd Index (200 hour moving average). IGM

(Thomson Financial) - Rumours that the UK's biggest bank HSBC is having to buy up to 5 bln stg in dollars in order to meet its dividend commitments, have been supporting the pound above 2 usd, according to analysts.

HSBC, which accounts in dollars, is due to announce its quarterly dividend payment to shareholders on Monday. But UK shareholders have the option to take it in sterling, meaning the bank has to buy a significant sum of pounds with dollars.

'There are rumours that it could be as much as 5 bln stg but we think this is way off the mark,' said Paul Bednarczyk, currency strategist at 4CAST.

Bednarczyk said he estimates that HSBC's total dividend payment would be 4.2 bln usd, and with 30 pct of shareholders being British, the sum is probably closer to just 650 mln stg.

The risk of "a more abrupt slowdown" will occupy the minds of investors in both the Spanish and Irish property markets, it was claimed yesterday, as the steep drops in the value of Spanish real estate companies on Tuesday continued to have knock-on effects on the Irish Stock Exchange.

Re ACC’s
“Irish have joined the chorus criticising the ECB over interest rate increases…..
Two comments that Spain and Ireland may need to leave the euro and parallels drawn with the UK’s ERM crisis in 1992.”

I don't know where you get your info but I haven't heard one peep about this. The Irish property market has paused before the impending election amid speculation stamp duty will be reduced but the market and economy hasn't imploded. e.g. I sold my house a week ago above the guide price after being on the market for only 3weeks.

You have to remember many of the (predominately British) euro-sceptics have been writing the same rubbish for 10 years now. Like a broken clock they will eventually be correct that Ireland and Spain slow down. Housing construction has slowed because approvals have been reigned in till infrastructure catches up while Ireland's population has gone from 3 to 4 million (as opposed to most of old europe) One has to remember the industrial revolution largely passed Ireland by and much of what we take for granted in most countries in Europe was built up over hundereds oof years so much of the construction including infrastructure is because it was so far behind. Alot of the capital growth is because it is off a low base i.e. Irish real estate was undervalued for a long time. No one is talking about leaving the Euro. On the contrary, if ireland had it would have had double the intrest rates the past 10years. That would be popular??

China's achievements are greater than most can imagine when the drop in JPY taken into account. history shows that Japan has it's own manners to treat gravity and that makes the business harder to play but also more is possible to gain. the better memory knows that the NIKKEI drop from 40K to below 10K makes top or bottom picking with Japan related instruments second only to impossible. with all that said, JPY is still the best tool for day traders.

Recent price action suggests EUR/JPY will break up through the previous highs around 162.50, opening risk towards 163.50 and 164.00.

The Swiss franc may well prove more resilient now than it has over the last few weeks.

On the domestic front, economic growth could show signs of recovery, despite recent suggestions from the Swiss National Bank that the need for higher interest rates isn't so great.

And on the international front, a renewed interest in carry trades may be less aggressive than anticipated - especially given the sharp selloff in the Spanish property sector.

Much of the earlier boom in the Spanish market had been funded by low-yielding carry loans in the franc and yen. "In the case of real estate falling into negative equity, 'real estate carry trade' would be at risk," noted Hans Redeker, head of global foreign exchange strategy at BNP Paribas in London.

JAPAN'S prime minister, Shinzo Abe, makes an official trip to America. His predecessor, Junichiro Koizumi, had a sour relationship with China and a sweet one with America, but Mr Abe appears, at first glance, to be shifting things around. He has managed to improve ties with China considerably in the past few months, while a row over Japan’s war-time use of comfort women, which Mr Abe clumsily denied involved coercion, has put a strain on the Japanese-American relationship.… FX effect maybe....

China's Protein Gap Will Stoke Global Inflation: Andy Mukherjee

By Andy Mukherjee

April 26 (Bloomberg) -- The ``tortilla crisis'' that shook Mexico in January may not have been a flash in the pan.

If Jing Ulrich, the Hong Kong-based chairwoman of China equities at JPMorgan Chase & Co., is correct, everything from beer to steak might just become more expensive globally.

Ulrich's case is built around a statistic and an observation: It takes 7 kilograms (15 pounds) of grain to produce 1 kilo of beef; and ``Chinese people are eating more meat as consumer wealth increases,'' she says.Click here

Dear Ed, hello….

I hope the following constitutes an adequate response to your inquiry (if not apologies).

All (countries) have dynamics of own thereby both valuations thus correlations can be flawed.

Needless to say market agrees or disagrees with the alternative view (rather, an analysis study in continuum, in this case).

First two sample cases in point are USD/JPY and EUR/JPY, former undervalued and the latter overvalued, both in high proportions.

GBP the most promising yet equally vulnerable (thereby, risky) currency is overvalued against CHF. Whereas regarding Euro, a currency that has positive and negative value pace acceleration characteristics, almost in balance (i.e. where it should be now) though with a marginal upside potential.

(My) native, TRY (new Turkish Lira), another high risk-reward one, meanwhile is overvalued against JPY, however vice versa on USD.

I leave now with best of wishes to you and others who make this forum a pleasant one in vocal or silent expression.

On that note referring back to another point in your post (AZUSA 4x-ed 02:34 GMT April 20, 2007) I humbly believe frustration is among first signs of emergence of a view to be formed or even better, reformed.

Should I get depressed?

Kind regards

Business confidence in New Zealand declined for the second straight month in April, as businesses reacted to the first of two quick-fire rate hikes, although key growth gauges such as firms' own activity expectations remained solid, a survey published Thursday showed.

A net 19% of businesses surveyed expect business conditions to worsen over the next 12 months, well above a net 12.5% in March, according to the National Bank of New Zealand's Business Outlook survey.

Net confidence is defined as the number of optimists minus pessimists.

Firms' pricing intentions and inflation expectations remain elevated.

The survey comes as the Reserve Bank of New Zealand earlier Thursday raised the official interest rate for the second time in six weeks, by 25 basis points to 7.75%, in a bid to tame inflationary pressures emanating from a resilient domestic economy.

However, the business outlook survey, taken after the first rate hike March 8, shows that domestic-oriented businesses "continue to thumb their noses at higher interest rates," National Bank said in an accompanying statement - with both retailers and the construction sector showing an uptick in confidence in regard to their own businesses.

Dow Jones technical analysis shows NZD/USD trading above uptrend support line from March 8 low of 0.6750, now at 0.7420, any breach would tilt technical bias toward bearish, targeting 0.7309 (23.6% Fibonacci correction of advance from March 6 low of 0.6715 to April 18 peak at 0.7492), then 0.7195 (38.2% correction). Daily MACD indicator looks poised to stage negative crossover against its exponential moving average, which would signal NZD/USD sell.

Repossessions 'to double' if interest rates go up again
The number of homes repossessed could more than double if interest rates rise next month, a report has warned.
More than 115 families a day will lose their homes because they cannot afford soaring mortgage costs and other debts, it said.
This would mean repossessions rose from 17,000 a year to almost 43,000 in 2009.
However, if rates rise more sharply from

5.25 per cent today to 6.25 per cent, Dr Blake forecasts 55,000 repossessions in two years' time. A typical mortgage taken out today is just more than £150,000, the highest since records began.
A "severe" crisis in household finances could wipe billions of pounds off the balance sheets of the major banks, the Bank of England added. censoredLINK

U.S. manufacturing executives' optimism for the global economy rose in the first quarter from an already high level, even as their outlook for the domestic economy slipped, according to a survey released Wednesday.

Some 83% of industrial manufacturers are optimistic about the future of the world economy over the next 12 months, up from 69% in the final quarter of 2006, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers' "Manufacturing Barometer." Optimism for the U.S. economy fell to 57% from 64%. Telephone interviews were conducted for the quarterly survey between Feb. 5 and April 13.

Other sentiments were better or stable. Some 85% of the executives interviewed expect revenues to grow over the next 12 months, unchanged from the previous survey. On average, however, those expecting revenue growth foresee a slightly faster rate of growth than before. Also, more executives plan to make major new investments and add new workers than three months earlier.

Australia's Labor To Create New Industrial Relations Body
Rudd, elected opposition leader last December, has also promised to get rid of Australian Workplace Agreements, individual labor contracts introduced by Prime Minister John Howard's government and used extensively in the booming mining sector.

The Liberal-National government, trailing Labor in public opinion polls, has warned the opposition's industrial relations policies will damage the economy, in its 16th year of economic growth.

Business groups were also wary of Labor's new industrial relations policy, which requires the endorsement of the party machine at a national conference in Sydney this weekend.

"This new super agency is part of an overall plan to increase industrial relations regulation and impose compulsory collective bargaining on workplaces," said Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chief Executive Peter Hendy said in a statement.

"It would be a backward step for Australia." Prime Minister John Howard said the policy would give Labor an opportunity to increase the power of the unions, Labor's traditional support base, by appointing unionists to the new body.

Rudd said the new body would set up a "fair and independent umpire" to replace the "alphabet soup of organizations" that regulate Australia's current industrial relations regime.

The Australian housing industry appears to be struggling in the face of higher interest rates with industry figures Thursday showing new home sales were steady in March compared with February.

Housing Industry Association data show that sales were unchanged at 8,191 dwellings in March. The HIA data also showed new home sales in the first quarter of this year fell 16% year on year.

The slump follows three interest rate increases in 2006 which raised the borrowing costs for home buyers.

However, financial markets expect the Reserve Bank of Australia will keep rates on hold for the time being after signs that inflation eased considerably during the past six months.

Private detached house sales rose 0.2% on month while sales of multi-units fell 2.0%, the HIA said in a statement.

HIA chief economist Harley Dale said any upward momentum in new home sales clearly stalled in March
Higher levels of buyer interest traditionally found in the early months of the year are falling away in 2007 due to the large gap between the desire for home ownership and affordability, Dale said.

My weekly cycle indicates that the next quantized level is 1.1096 (1.1020*, 1.1096*, 1.1172* and 1.1249* are separated by a constant value of around 76 pips which is the weekly cycle rhythm).

Weak NZ Exports Masked By Robust Commodities -GS


0028 GMT [Dow Jones] Composition of NZ March trade data continues to suggest weakness in export volumes is being masked by rising commodity prices, with import demand being fueled by NZD appreciation, says Goldman Sachs JBWere senior economist Shamubeel Eaqub; data add some downside risk to own view of flat net exports contribution for 1Q GDP, but says there's considerable uncertainty with spot and realised export price movement. "We expect the external sector to drag on growth and the current account deficit to widen from 2H07."

ATLANTA SOUTH/USA ZEUS,

There is nothing wrong in asking someone why they choose to trade long or short. I do ask that just to clarify why one is long or short on certain pairs. Sometimes you may feel that it is alright to short a pair but to someone else they may have another point of view as why they choose to long based on technical view points and that may prompt us to view the trade again. We do have our differences sometimes based different technical interpretations. What I dislike in this forum is personal attacks and ridicule someone on their trade. As long as the criticism is constructive it should always be welcome. GT/GL

Agree. No need to justify. Just a fun place to share trades, ideas etc. Have always been one to share or explain when asked. However the more that is exposed in the transparency/honesty dept etc the more the vulchers and rats gather and try to chew on it. When they have nothing to sink their teeth into they go apeschitt and spoof and taunt. This place has seen that type of predictable behavior far too much and prevents greater dialogues for many IMO.
Have a great day trading!
