I am also waiting to short usd/cad at 1.11xx if seen. Still see cad as upside coming mainly from cad/jpy strength

Keeping in mind that odds always favor the position taken otherwise there is no reason to take a position. Also objectives may be quite different as well.
Looks like the rate of increase is approx 1 pip/hr since yesterday's low. GT!

I hope it works out for you - I'm currently waiting to short around 1.1105 (and descending, at around .9 pips/hour...). I think this band could be traded both ways (I guess Zeus is proof of that), though the odds are still with the shorts.

IMF's Rato Concerned Over Pension Investment In Hedge Funds
WASHINGTON International Monetary Fund Managing Director Rodrigo Rato on Wednesday said he is concerned over the growing amount of capital that hedge funds are raising from pension funds.
"It may be that pension funds are using hedge fund investment to diversify their own risks, but a situation where almost one-third of the capital for institutions on the cutting edge of financial risks comes from institutions whose first priority is safe investments certainly bears watching," Rato said in prepared remarks to be delivered at the Council of the Americas Washington conference.

About 30% of investment in hedge funds now comes from pension funds, Rato said.
Rato said he "broadly" agreed with the approach to hedge fund regulation taken by President George W. Bush's interagency Working Group on Capital Markets. That group, led by U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, has said the most effective way to manage systemic risk posed by hedge funds is to keep close watch on their counterparties, regulated banks and insurance companies. But that approach might need to evolve over time, Rato said. "Continued attention needs to be paid to ensure that market risks are being comprehensively assessed in an increasingly complex and leveraged financial system," he said.

Legislators and regulators also need to improve consumer protection in the U.S. mortgage loan industry, Rato said.

"With regard to the mortgage markets, it will be important to avoid a heavy-handed response that could unduly limit innovation or flexibility," Rato said. "However, from a financial stability perspective, it is important that credit discipline is restored and maintained."

Latin American governments should continue to reduce public debt, so that they are better positioned to weather potential financial market turmoil in the U.S., Rato said.

"Public debt remains high (in Latin America), at over 50% of gross domestic product on average," Rato said. "Ideally debt should be low enough for governments to have the freedom to implement a counter-cyclical fiscal policy if they need to."

The Canadian dollar's recent strength prompted Bank of
Canada Governor David Dodge to say on Tuesday that the currency has outpaced the bank's assumptions and that further gains would prompt the bank to take the currency's rise into account.
But Dodge also said the currency's rise since the beginning
of the year is mainly justified by strong economic fundamentals
and rising commodity prices, which Spitz took to the mean the
bank is not uncomfortable with the appreciation.
The currency also extended its 2007 highs against the euro
and pound, and its 14-1/2 year high against the yen during the
session.
Testimony before a Senate banking committee by Dodge and
bank Senior Deputy Governor Paul Jenkins after the market close could drive the overnight performance of the currency. full article...

Hedge fund risk highest since LTCM, with a twist
NEW YORK, May 2 (Reuters) - Hedge funds trends are looking alarmingly similar to 1998, when the implosion of Long-Term Capital Management threatened the global financial system, the New York Federal Reserve said in a study released on Wednesday.The study represented a stern warning about the possible fate of the $1.4 trillion industry, although it added that low financial volatility helps to explain much of the apparent risk concentration. "Recent high correlations among hedge fund returns could suggest concentrations of risk comparable to those preceding the hedge fund crisis of 1998," according to a paper written by Tobias Adrian, capital markets economist at the central bank.
Hedge funds borrow large sums of money in order to take aggressive bets on financial markets. Many operate heavily in the derivatives market, estimated at around $17 trillion, raising fears about possible future shocks.

Similar trading strategies can heighten risk when funds have to close out comparable positions in response to a common shock," the economist Adrian wrote. censored

Four think-tanks from the UK, Austria and Switzerland have put in bids to advise the government on its next economic reform steps and to draw up six-monthly economic projections - work that for more than 50 years has been performed by an elite handful of German researchers.

hi - do you have an idea if we see now a top in USDJPY around 120 - 120.30 -- will it drag the EURJPY down?

or there is strong interest to break the barriers at 1.6.35/50?

===
Your question is a million dollar question. " if we see now a top in USDJPY around 120 - 120.30"

Unfortunately I do not have the exact answer.

What I can know is that, this week is Golden Week in Japan, so FX activities is at its minimal, corporates, exporters etc. Not that these are gonna create much of an impact on the global FX activities. I believe 'hot' money is bigger and tends to lead the direction of the market, apart from central banks.

As for me personally, anything above 120 is a good opportunity to start building up one's yen position for medium to long term. Fundamentally, the Japanese economy is doing ok and I have observing foreign bodies snatching up domestic assets. Nikkei, by comparision, is still a lagger in the global equities market and by 3rd and 4th quarter, it should be trading new highs.

Lastly, if yen were to strengthen across the board, no doubt it will bring eur/jpy with it, unless we see very very strong inflationary pressure on the EUR zone.

hi - do you have an idea if we see now a top in USDJPY around 120 - 120.30 -- will it drag the EURJPY down?

or there is strong interest to break the barriers at 1.6.35/50?

GVI Forex Survey 14:11 GMT May 2, 2007 Reply   
In the May monthly forex spot rate sentiment survey of professional forex dealers by global-view.com, the leading forex discussion website, sentiment for the USD against the EUR has worsened. The three-month ahead mean currency spot rate forecast for EUR/USD was 1.3660 from 1.3365 a month earlier. The EUR/USD spot price at the mid-point (April 30 close) of when the survey was being conducted was 1.3660.

The GVI-Cumino Euro bull index (Range 0-100; 0 = most bearish, 100 = most bullish, 50 = neutral) was weaker in the EUR/USD at 48 from 54 previously. The GVI-Cumino index uses a theoretical neutral option strategy to measure the intensity and direction of individual trader sentiment from price levels at the time when forecasts were made.

The USD/JPY mean dollar forex spot rate forecast improved to 118.17 from 116.11 one month ago. The USD/JPY currency spot rate at the mid-point of when the survey was being conducted was 119.45. The GVI-Cumino dollar bull index turned USD neutral. It was 48 after 41.

Traders expect the price of crude oil (WTI) to close at $69.00 in three-months time from the current spot vs. the previous $65.65 estimate.

In a special question, 27% said they felt that the ECB refi rate (3.75%) would peak at 4.00% or below in 2007. 48% saw a 4.25% top, and 25% said it would reach 4.50% or higher.

This may be an ominous sign: Bankers Life Insurance has sued Credit Suisse over subprime mortgage-backed bonds that apparently have soured. The securities of course were investment grade when they were bought. But a subsequent downgrade resulted in the buyer losing up to $800 million. There could be more downgrades in the works. Standard & Poor's has said it may downgrade residential mortgage-backed securities transactions if the environment continues to deteriorate. We may see suits after every downgrade. Such suits would strike many as in the nuisance category. Downgrades after all are a part of Wall Street life--it happens. Of course, Bankers Life is also charging that Credit Suisse withheld material information about the bonds, which, if disclosed, would have resulted in a substantial downgrade of the Moody's rating. Presumably, the buyer would not have bought it then.

Hi Zeus - I base my price speed on that of the trend line, and treat variations to either side as noise, like one would do by comparing the outputs of a moving averager at different times to get the speed.

Re the book - just joking there; it is a good book...& I do basically agree that the past is not a great indicator of the future. But it's sort of like what Churchill said about democracy - the worst system in the world, except for all the others...

You lost me there. Larry did not offer any “indicators” in the book. I believe the point to be made is that we can look back and perfectly describe something that has already happened but that does not mean much, if anything, about the future.

BTW- This current USD/CAD sell off leaves the pair gaining about 1 pip/hr from approx 24 hrs ago, while you said it was falling by about the same measure. Any account for this activity in your readout? Seems like it might be a neutralizer until it shifts one way or the other?

Oakland daimyo 13:29 GMT May 2, 2007 Reply   
Judgement of these black box systems is unimportant. The point is to learn how to accomodate these systems into your view of market movement and crowd psychology. For instance, use black boxes to help you get better entries (sell resistance in downtrend or buy on dip in uptrend). It is my belief that most of these black boxes are being run by bucket shops who use them to trade against their so called clients. Nothing wrong with this practice as the bookies in Vegas do it everyday. The point is to maintain the "line" not bet on direction per se. A dealers sole job is to generate order flow on both sides of the trade and play on customer off the other thereby leaving them mkt neutral. Of course it seldom works exactly perfect and that's when we see swift price level adjustments.

RBC Capital Markets have revised their forecasts for the Fed's target rate this year. Analysts now no longer expect a rate cut mid-2007, but still see the bank hiking by 50bps in 2008, bringing the level to 5.75%. RBC's move came prior to the release of ADP's latest jobs estimate, which put the increase in private-sector payrolls in April at 64,000, well below expectations and the previous month's 98,000 gain.

Gold Coast Martin 13:08 GMT May 2, 2007 Reply   
Trading since 2006 has seen the introduction of more "black box"propriatary systems been adopted by more and more market movers. This has resulted in more daily reversals within the week as these systems trade the market in either direction on a daily basis in 45-90 pip increments...which means that it is harder for the market to drop/rise 200-300 in a straight line and harder for traders to hold a trade for that long. Add the extra liquidity to the market by the entry of new players and this provides more "food"for the black boxes everyday. So for "stay at home"traders it is becoming harder and harder every week/month/year to produce consistent profit off such a market. This extra increasing liquidity these days works against the smaller traders, while increasing the winning propability of these automated systems. It is becoming a on sided market....Solution against this is to trade shorter time frames and to trade longer term options. This way , the small trader trades "with the black box daily flow" and at the same overcomes the daily noise produced by them via option plays.....g/l to all...

Well, here's some details on how not to trade USPJPY - I have to move my TP by hand, so when I head to bed I usually just estimate where it will be in 7 or 8 hours, and put it there. Well, last night I forgot to do this on the pair ( it would have been set in the mid 60's), the results being this delightful JUBB plot. Note where my SL got caught, while my TP was set at 45 ( about 2 points lower than it actually got). Good math, just bad trading, so not all hope is lost....

It never ceases to amaze me how fixated this current mkt environment is on economic reports &/or news. This type of flip flop trading has been promoted by brokerage firms who are the only beneficiaries of this type of guesswork. I personally believe that with the increase in the number of small retail accounts, intraday noise has picked up significantly. The 25 x 3 P&F chart will help "quiet down the noise". As it relates to price movements prior to reports, traders must remember that mkts are a discounting mechanism, so therefore, reports/ news are priced into the market before release. No wonder so many traders get shaken out by whipsaws and false breaks. Take a view on the market, place your bet, set your stop, let it ride. Emotional trading leads to emotional losses. I'm just trying to help the spec crowd deal with the natural ebb and flow of the markets. Markets move in cycles on multiple time frames. Markets are fractal in nature. Good trades

I wont get into the EW as I know its not of any use to you but the results aere as follow: It looks on 4hr that we have potential for another leg up but this will only be signalled by a break of 163.29 (but be careful about using that as a s/l area as there may be a an option to exut that move if the follow through i sweak or spikes. Very short term the move from 162.39 to 163.19 looks corrective so there is a strong liklihood of another down leg available for you to make a little dough quiter soon.or to get out if you are not happy.

A break of 161.95 below wil give this correection much more room to move.

gl no worries

Kap// yeap and getting walkied for 50 pips presently. IM counting on a cross-current of tech indications that are pointing to a yen strengthening phase dropping to 118 area and the GBP which is either going to re-test the local lows and dump for a reversal or, if im wrong wonder on sidways up for a little more.
This isnt a short term trade. Im looking for 3-500 points at least althouugh i may enter and exit to maximize the trend reversal. I have some danger points on GBP that will force me to exit but im loath to say them here. On JPY unfortunately the extension may prove more prolonged for reasons stated earlier but the wave structure is corrective so the move is likely to reverse.

Two city officials die in helicopter crash in Michigan

SCIO TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Two city officials of Chelsea, Michigan, are dead following a helicopter crash.

Police Chief Scott Sumner and fire Captain Matt Tuttle were killed yesterday. Authorities say they were searching for a man who ran from a traffic stop when Tuttle's private helicopter went down west of Ann Arbor.

Tuttle had volunteered the use of his chopper after hearing that police were searching for the man. The motorist had run into a wooded area after being pulled over on an interstate and found to have warrants out for his arrest.

A witness says the helicopter was flying slowly and then suddenly just dropped.

Flags in Chelsea have been lowered to half staff.

Turkey is in a new phase of uncertainty.

One of the opposition parties ANAP, rightwing liberals signaled support for governing Muslim democrats AKP to elect president by public vote through a change in constitution. It is unclear how a balanced constitution can be written until July 1, 2007 when a general election is expected to take place.

Main opposition and leftwing CHP defends the view that the parliament is declared disfunctional at present (and can call for general elections only) with the constitutional court annulling the first round of presidential elections.

It is also unclear who serves as the president during the presidential election process. Parliament president Bulent Arinc of AKP, blamed for his uncompromising stance over a less controversial presidential candidate claiming that it will not be the current president Ahmet N. Sezer. According to Arinc Sezer's time in office will be over by the time. Arinc himself is among those who could, since he is the deputy to the president (when necessary such as visits abroad), a development that could make him center of criticism, again.

Constitutional court can be asked to rule again.

Australian Dollar Drops On Leveraged Selling
Profit-taking by leveraged funds and renewed strength in the U.S. dollar kept the Australian currency under sustained pressure in Asia Wednesday.

A widely-anticipated decision by the Reserve Bank of Australia at 2330 GMT to keep interest rates steady at 6.25% in May, added to the downward drift of the Aussie, dealers said.

Government bond prices ended the day lower in line with trends in the U.S. overnight. But the RBA's rates-on-hold decision damped enthusiasm for selling.

Currency and debt traders now see the risk of a rate hike as a medium-to-long-term possibility, with many economists saying rates will remain on hold at least until 2008.
Greg Gibbs, senior currency strategist at ABN AMRO, said it was a day for profit-takers with leveraged funds moving to lock in some of the returns accrued with the currency pushing to 17-year highs in recent months.

Inflation looks to have cooled, but momentum is building behind economic growth at a time when labor market conditions are at their tightest in 31 years and wage demands are on the rise, she said.

Tony Morris, senior currency strategist at the ANZ Bank said data pointing to a slowing in employment growth in April also weakened the Australian dollar.

A government survey showed skilled job vacancies fell 2.2% in April from March.

The odds are in favor of maintaining a short position when the market is trading below the lower limit of the daily cycle reference at 1.5152. A projected resistant barrier is located at 1.5125 - 1.5132 and a projected supporting barrier is expected at 1.5007 - 1.5017. The odds are high that the market will trade in the extreme level at 1.4811 - 1.4968.

Highlights

RBA leaves Cash Rate unchanged at 6.25%, as widely expected. Focus now on RBA MPS on Friday, for likely downgrade of CPI forecast.

Turkish PM Tayyip Erdogan says his government has agreed to an early national election on either June 24 or July 1 to resolve the current standoff (even though the presidential vote in parliament will go ahead today, after court annulled the first vote from last week).

AAP/ News.com.au: PM John Howard says next week's Budget will ease pressure on interest rates and he says a Coalition Government would always keep rates lower than Labor.

PM Howard welcomed RBA's decision today to leave interest rates unchanged, telling Sky News "It's good news for Australian homebuyers, I'm interested in seeing interest rates remain moderate and the Budget next week will contribute downward pressure on interest rates."

Australian Treasurer Peter Costello says inflation is in the middle of the target range. Inflation forecast will be updated in the budget, budget will will put downward pressure on interest rates. Prices pressures have decelerated since the end of last year.

President George Bush vetoed vetied Iraq bill that contains $100bn of funding and Oct 1 start date for maximum six month timeframe for withdrawal of US toops from Iraq.

WSJ: Rupert Murdoch's surprise $5 billion bid for Dow Jones & Co. News Corp.'s bid of $60 a share in cash, or a combination of cash and stock, is pitched at a price roughly 67% above the recent market value.

UK Times: An investment fund controlled by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai, has emerged as one of the biggest shareholders in HSBC, 2 weeks after Maan al-Sanea of Saudi Arabia, appeared with a 3.1% stake.

Greenback seems fighting back to life again after yesterday's stronger ISM number seen helping to trigger a "mini-rally" in USD and putting pressure on EUR, JPY, AUD, NZD,GBP, amidst absence of major news in holiday thinned markets.

AUD/USD little changed after RBA left Cash Rate unchanged at 6.25%, as widely expected after yesterday's Board Meeting, with the pair hovering around 0.8265-75. It then dipped to day lows, weighed by talks of PM John Howard comments that budget will put downward pressure on rates, reinforced later by Treasurer Peter Costello, with AUD hitting day lows of 0.8220. Focus on Friday's RBA MPS, where 4CAST sees a downward revision of CPI, and no rate hikes till 2008.

EUR/USD finally took out the stoploss below 1.3575-80, clearing rumoured Russian/ Chinese bids to 1.3562, with some talks US hedge funds, models are buying back USD, liquidating some positions ahead of May 31 book closing for some. Still talks of China bids 1.3550-60.

USD/JPY 120 triggers finally taken out today, after initially capped at 119.94 at the fixing. Good options related, and Japanese exporters offers at 119.90-120.00 taken out, pushing it to 2-month highs of 120.15, its highest level since Feb 27 highs of 120.75.

EUR/JPY hit day lows of 162.75 from 163.10 on back of EUR stoploss selling, before edging back up. GBP/USD hit day lows of 1.9939 as EUR under pressure, before edging back up again, while NZD under pressure as well on weaker AUD.

Focus on Turkish Lira/ politics and any impact on Emerging markets, as Govt to call early elections.

Nikkei +137pts or 0.8% at 17,412, JGBs under selling pressure today, with 10yr yield +0.015% at 1.620%.Asian FX range: USD/JPY 119.73/120.15, EUR/USD 1.3562/1.3609, GBP/USD 1.9939/1.9991, USD/CHF 1.2138/1.2174, AUD/USD 0.8220/0.8282, NZD/USD 0.7363/0.7407.

Australian Treasurer Peter Costello Wednesday said the government would "live within its means" in next week's budget, which would not exert pressure on the inflation rate. Costello is putting the finishing touches on his 12th budget, due to be handed down next Tuesday. The budget will provide an opportunity for the center-right government to offer voters some sweeteners ahead of the general election due by the end of the year. But Costello said the budget would be responsible and would deliver a surplus. "It's important that we keep inflation contained, price rises low," he told a media briefing. "That's important for households, it's important for the economy and it's important for interest rates." Costello said last week's consumer price index showed inflation had been decelerating since December but that did not mean the so-called "inflation genie" was defeated.

i think the M&A business may now be workign against Aussie. There is debate that the Cemex deal on Rinker may not proceed and The Qantas private equity buyout reaches a climax Friday. Any hedge fund usuing Qantas as an equity and AUD play must be getting nervous now.

AUD/USD has broken low set following below-expectation Australia CPI release of 0.8234 (April 24), last at 0.8228. Profit taking on longs, also some unwinding of AUD/JPY positions contributing to fall say traders; extra push being given by broad USD rebound. Pair may now target 0.8151 (April 9 low), Dow Jones technical analysis shows.

NZ have been gradually raising rates , BOE have dragged their feet while letting people think all is well, now needing greater increase, once rates peak in NZ kiwi will hit the fan as I have heard by ten big figures, but cant compare them at all.

Trading is a lot like fishing

"But when I am alone in the half light of the canyon all existence seems to fade to a being with my soul and memories. And the sounds of the Big Black Foot River and a four count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise. Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters."

Nice poetry CB! Fresh relief here. Well that call was put out some 80 pips ago on GBP/USD as more of an intra-day call. Cycle signal came a bit before that but was cranking on stocks and oil at the time.
cheers.

Carry Pairs AUD/JPY, NZD/JPY Biased Down

AUD/JPY, NZD/JPY both biased lower after breaking intraday support; momentum coming from profit taking in AUD/USD, NZD/USD underpinned by broad USD rebound while USD/JPY little changed amid thinned trade due to Golden Week holidays. AUD/JPY broke support at 98.96, last at 98.84, may test 98.45 in next sessions. NZD/JPY broke support at 88.49, last at 88.43, may test 88.04 in next sessions, Dow Jones technical analysis shows

Will aussie get past 8200 after adp? Heres hoping.

Anyone thought of trading with margin call as the s/l? I have been demoing it with awesome results (i suppose how accurate you are).. But it minimizes loss and maximizes profits.... Your thoughts?
