Buy-to-let owners face £4.1bn tax clampdown
Landlords will face a capital gains tax of more than £4.1 billion, or an average bill of £48,600 based on 2006 house prices, according to figures from a specialist buy-to-let broker Landlord Mortgages. New tax-collecting measures include £60 daily penalties for people who fail to file self-assessment returns on time, abolishing caps on fines and giving inspectors bonuses for securing unpaid bills.

Incidentally, EUR/JPY must correct all the way to 164.10 to avoid significant additional losses. And support for analysis is found for EUR/GBP continued short term correction to .6700 and exposing the realtive strength of the GBP found in the crosses. That relative strength should reverse afterwards propelling USDEUR to 1.42/5

Bodrum//I am away from my charts so i am going by memory...The L/T view is that both EUR?JPY and GBP/Bodrum//I am away from my charts so i am going by memory...The L/T view is that both EUR?JPY and GBP/JPY are in a c wave that could extend to 166/7 and 244/5 respectively without calling into question the possibility of further impulsive moves carrying out beyond that. On GBP/USD, i have us in a wave 4 of an e wave over the past couple of decades. This view is made less likely on a break of 1.9675 and wrong on a break of 1.9140. On USDJPY, I have us ending a large corrective phase from the lows in 2004. This may venture all the way to 128.60/80. In the meantime a large correction is still feasible.
Now the shorterm is that USDJPY has probably completed or is near completing a wave 4 targeting minimum of 2.0180 to as much as 2.40 if it extends.
On USDJPY if i am expecting a deeper correction on the Yen crosses makes me s/t bearish USDJPY. However the longer we continue sideways on the crosses the more likely we will see USDJPY approach the 128 zone.
The recent sequence that you refer will only indicate more downside if we stay below 240.20 area. Still nothing will be known until we break the range.
Vague I know but if I didn’t understand your question then i may need to know your time stamps to help you.
Hope all is well GTGL

Mid-short term view eur/usd pair: The bounce talked about on my previous comments has taken the pair to test key resistance but failed to break it. With that failure the bears have once again a chance at the key support (3405-15). This key support must be taken out soon or the bulls will take the momentum and try again at the key resistance (3520-30). The strategy is still sell on failed rallies (as the 3520-30 failed). One more thing to note and that is we are in the summer ranges once again. These are very difficult times to sustain or break key points so it is wise to keep tight stops IMHO. Peace and GT

Miami OMIL (/;-> 00:38 GMT May 25, 2007
Eur/usd pair mid/short term: This pair is well into the correction mode already. With key resistance around the 3490-3500 area and main resistance around the 3520-30 area for now the plan is to continue to sell any failed resistance point. Key support is now around the 3405-15 and 3365-75 area for now. With indicators in the O/S area look for a possible bounce if the 3405-15 support is not taken out soon. I am looking to see at least the 3365-75 area before any correction is over unless the key resistance is taken out IMHO. Peace and GT

Recovering USD, deteriorating carry trade sentiment likely to limit topside in NZD/USD today but solid support has been evident on dips towards 0.7230-7240 region, says Bank of New Zealand currency strategist Danica Hampton; says it will take some fresh impetus to see NZD/USD make convincing downside break but investors should "keep an eye out" for how Chinese markets perform later in session after news China raised its stamp duty in effort to take heat out of over-inflated equity markets; announcement triggered aggressive selling of NZD/JPY overnight, says Hampton

It is possible that the perspective change is implemented on China and Japan versus bubble, as we type. This follows well known (and relatively respected) opinion leaders' statements. Paradoxically it may be the case that Japanese politicans due to lost credibility until quite recently (when they started to show signs of change) are not in a position to reverse it any longer. I wish everyone good luck. Regards

Great moves. MIB did a marvellous job to help the bugger move hin und wieder....
Loonie will go on to 10550 but first correction time to 11045. Rangetrading.
And i dont care what the news is, as long as it is moving. Bugger gives great opps to trade the hin und wieder thing. So keep the range in mind. If by any chance is does not make it back to 16370 in a tick than we will face that 16318-16270 thing again.

PARIS (AP)--French President Nicolas Sarkozy said Tuesday that the euro's rising value against the dollar is "artificial."

"I want us to do the same thing with the euro as the Chinese do with the Yuan," Sarkozy said, referring to China's exchange-rate peg. "When they tell me the euro is at its right value, it's relative when you consider that the euro has gained 35% against the dollar."

Sarkozy said he referred the problem to European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet.

"We must have this debate," he said as he was visiting farmers in Saint-Pierre-Le-Viger, in the Seine-Maritime region. "I believe in the independence of the ECB and I believe that currency is a tool to serve growth and employment.

"How do you think it's possible that agriculture can survive if all the productivity gains that it makes are erased by the artificial appreciation of the euro against the dollar?"

The US will be the ultimate commodity currency (Perhaps it already is.)

The easy cheap supply of crude and other commodities are being spent at an alarming rate. Once gone the largest current oil reserve in the world- deep in the US borders will be mined along with gigantic coal reserves.

Also- No one grows food crops like the US. The information age will be sustained by the commodity anchor.

The strong USD policy will be shockingly powerful in the years to come as we mark the end of a weakening cycle.

USA Zeus 15:34/ the globe is significantly decoupling ? How: will there be less children (aka consumers)?

I think Sarkozy may have said more than he may have liked. Ref to FM 13:30.

Despite the plastic smiles that Paulsen and Yi put on for the benefit of cameras, one can not dismiss that the powers that may be (including CBs) are in game of chicken. In that sence, should there occur a mis-understanding about keeping "USD strong" or some other CB-stated platitude cause a correction in some stox index, we just might get those "various flow patterns on a more decent and impactful scale" as the CB putzes add more money and credit in an attempt to ward off a deflationary vortex.

Personally I foresee top growth in the next 15 years , so much development ahead , that Stocks are probably going to double within the next 10 years(something i ve written back when dow was 8K..though my 13K target seems to close, 20K better now, but leaps don't last that long) , combined with hyper inflation due to commodity shortage..Again the broken record of People's Republic has already gobbled up 30% of the world's steel... 31% of the world's coal... 40% of the world's cement and so much more demand to feed its ravenous economy - for the next 15 to 20 years)..Combined with India , Africa..Fail to see how US$ can go UP with all above..As for oil , it will soon stop being a problem, potash and ethanol are a good replacement...Maybe i change my name to Potash man?Ah.

for EURCHF.... as I said before need a little more time here ... but EURJPY has broken up and could well go on to 170.00 before stabilising... but overall EUR up more ... c btw huge volatility coming our way... expect the unexpected... volatility in the direction of the actual trends... USD up against JPY and down against commodity currency... more or less stable against EUR....

May to November are definitely not known as trending months , though that doesn't mean it's not going to keep trending.
I m still looking for upside for now..
I have weekly bounce at 8159 (which was more or less touched and bounced today) to .8365..
-Just bought 8200 for 8365 (or more..if it starts moving up), testing the waters(means small entry to start with) , cut if 8130/40..Add above 8260..

I think major move will come AFTER the next 6 months , November to Feb as usual...

Looks like the Marlboro man rides a Camel in China-

BEIJING (Reuters) - About 100,000 Chinese die annually from diseases associated with passive smoking while more than half a billion on the mainland suffer from the smoke exhaled from cigarettes, according to the Xinhua news agency.

The Ministry of Health reported that nearly one million people die from smoking-related diseases each year in China, the world's largest tobacco producing and consuming country with more than 350 million smokers, it said.

We all look at prices to make profitable trades, but there are moments when majority sell or majority buy. Market makers can react on this information and as they have opposite position, they may want prices to rise when they bought(customers sold, thinking it will fall). Regardless of there is no central price maker prices will go against customers for two reasons: marketmakers incremental push in their direction(to neutralize position) and customers taking loss as fear is stronger than greed.

Zeus(and others): isn't it a way of hedging for forex marketmakers to push pair down in which customers have more long positions than short positions(and to push pair up if customers are more short than long). Somehow they must gain back profits lost against succesful traders(and scaplers) which do not let their profits evaporate throu diminishing value of their open positions(if they have any).

Information received since the April Monetary Policy Report (MPR) indicates that economic growth and inflation in Canada in the first part of this year have been stronger than the Bank was expecting. In April, both total CPI inflation, at 2.2 per cent, and core inflation, at 2.5 per cent, were above expectations. On the basis of available information, the Canadian economy is likely to have grown at an annual rate of about 3 1/2 per cent in the first quarter of this year - a full percentage point higher than was estimated in the MPR. The Bank now judges that there is somewhat greater excess demand in the economy than was thought to be the case in April. U.S. economic activity has come in largely as expected and continuing robust growth outside North America has maintained the global demand for, and high prices of, many commodities produced in Canada. Against this overall backdrop, the Canadian dollar has risen appreciably above the range assumed in the Bank's April projection.

On balance, the Bank judges that there is an increased risk that future inflation will persist above the 2 per cent inflation target and that some increase in the target for the overnight rate may be required in the near term to bring inflation back to the target.

The Bank of Canada's next scheduled date for announcing the overnight rate target is 10 July 2007.

From a friend-

"C h i n a :

Right after the Strategic Economic Dialogue with the US, China pushed the yuan down by placing the central reference rate lower--after 6 days of putting it higher to appease US calls for appreciation.

According to Bloomberg, the yuan dropped the most in two weeks, down 0.06% to 7.6497 as of the close of trading in Shanghai.

The Shanghai Securities News predicts that inflation will rise over 3% (the April reading) and stay there until at least August due to food prices, news that added a point to the 3-year bond, now yielding 3.24%. The Shanghai Composite rose to another record high. The Nihon Keizai Shimbun has an important story on the risks of Chinese stocks, which Japan cares about because Japanese investment trusts invested in Chinese stocks now tops ¥1 trillion. The first risk is overvaluation by standard yardsticks.

The P/E of Chinese listed stocks is about 47, from 60 just before the 2000 bubble collapse and a range of 10-20 in 2005. The price to book ratio also looks overvalued at 5.4 yesterday, vs. Tokyo and Hong Kong at 2 and “New York stocks, which are now just under 3.” We have no idea whether this study is measuring P/E and price-to-book as a US securities analysis would do. The second big risk is bank lending to speculators, which has not abated despite government pressure. But rising rates have to have an effect at some point, and rates are indeed rising. The Shanghai burped big in Feb when rates were raised, and by a lesser amount in April and last week. Finally, stock regulators are
voicing concerns about the one-way market--and they have the perfect tool to bring down the market--new supply. The NKS ends the story with this ominous reminder--government owns most of the shares in the first place. There is “now a growing possibility that the central and local governments may move to unload a portion of their shareholdings in order to let the air out of any bubble that may be forming in the
stock market.”

China sentenced to death the head of the food and drug ministry for taking bribes. This draconian measure is supposed to quell fear that other contaminated products are being exported, like toothpaste and pet food ingredients. One is reminded of the Japanese resolve in the early 1960’s to stop making cheap trinkets and to impose industry-wide high quality standards, a decision made by the business association Keidanren. Through the remarkable discipline of the Japanese, it worked. In the Chinese case, the average consumer cannot judge quality and we have no reason to suppose that compliance will be voluntary. These entrepreneurs are the worst sort of me-first “capitalists.” (People like this are the reason Milton Friedman was wrong when he said let the market decide in all cases everywhere.) It’s true that regulation can be enforced at extreme levels, but it’s not clear that China has the regulatory infrastructure to carry it out. It’s going to cost China a lot to fix this one."

Goldman Sachs Nervous On Carry Trade

Clues that the carry trade could soon unwind are building, says Goldman Sachs. Cites several factors: recovery in some low-yielders, (TWD, CZK, CHF), increasingly tight trading ranges hinting that few players are keen to add to positions, and the fact that carry's bull run is longer and stronger than at any time since '03, suggesting further gains seem unlikely. Also, strong US data and rates are pinching risky assets. Bank advises short NZD/JPY

USDGBP appears to have completed a five wave movement up and is now correcting. The implication is that once the corrective phase is complete (1.9780-1.9810) we should be punching through the 1.9900 barrier. The whole move from the high of 2.0133 smells like a wave 4 so that may mean that the upleg over 2.000 has begun. Much will depend on the way the afformentioned second leg up behaves.

Mild Bird Flu In UK Has Pandemic Potential - Experts


LONDON (AP)--The four presumed human H7N2 bird flu cases identified in the U.K. last week are a reminder that the next flu pandemic could be sparked by a virus other than the feared H5N1 strain, experts say.

While the global health community's attention in recent years has targeted the H5N1 virus, which has killed at least 186 people worldwide since 2003, some experts worry that attention is being diverted from seemingly less dangerous bird flu subtypes like H7.

"There may be a bit of complacency when it comes to recognizing the pandemic potential of H7 viruses," World Health Organization bird flu expert Dr Michael Perdue said Monday.

May 29 (Bloomberg) -- Short sellers are betting against U.S. stocks like never before as the Standard & Poor's 500 Index approaches an all-time high. That's making some of the biggest bulls even more optimistic.

``What the short seller appears to be doing is doubling down,'' said Kenneth Fisher, who oversees about $40 billion as chairman of Fisher Investments in Woodside, California. ``You love to see it, because if you believe there is a basic driver to the bull market, they're going to get run over.''

The amount of shorting -- where traders sell borrowed stocks expecting to buy them back after prices fall -- jumped to 3.1 percent of the total shares listed on the New York Stock Exchange this month. That's the highest since at least 1931, according to Bespoke Investment Group LLC, a research firm in Mamaroneck, New York.

HM Revenue & Customs has identified 80,000 landlords who may have claimed too much tax relief or have failed to declare the amount of rent they receive from the property, or a capital gain made on the sale of the property. There are more than 400,000 buy-to-let landlords in Britain. They borrowed more than £94 billion in 2006.

The Australian dollar slumped to its lowest level against the U.S. dollar since April 10 in Asia on Tuesday, as Japanese selling washed into the market.

News that private equity group Kohlberg Kravis Roberts had withdrawn its interest in acquiring retailer Coles Group, also drained support for the Australian dollar, analysts said. KKR was a key element in a consortium expressing its interest in buying Coles. The departure make it increasingly likely Coles will remain in Australian hands, equity analysts said.
Stronger-than-expected Japanese employment data and signs of inflationary risks attracted support to the yen during the day, he said.

But support for the Australian dollar reemerged late in the session, he added.

"It does feel as if retail demand is still being seen," he said.

Attention is locked on a steady widening in key Japanese spreads with 2-year swap rates up by almost 10 basis points in the last week, Rennie said.

Japanese 10-year swap rates are at their highest level since October last year, he added.

"Whether this is the beginning of a major correction in the yen remains to be seen, but certainly it does feel as if the yen has further to go," Rennie said.

Richard Grace, chief currency strategist at the Commonwealth Bank, said political factors were also affecting calculations surrounding the yen.

Strong speculation Japan's Abe administration could lose seats in July mid-term elections has some market watchers suggesting a weakened government may not be able to pressure the Bank of Japan to keep interest rates low, Grace said.

"Our Japanese interest rate expectations model is showing a greater probability of an interest rate rise even though the economic data has not been supportive of a BOJ rate rise," Grace said.

May 29 (Bloomberg) -- The euro may fall to a seven-week low of $1.3350 against the dollar as investors continue to unwind bets on the currency, said Michiyoshi Kato, a senior currency dealer in Tokyo at Mizuho Corporate Bank Ltd.

Hedge funds and other large speculators reduced bets the euro will rise by 20 percent on May 22 from the previous week, the biggest decline in three months, figures from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission in Washington showed. The euro has dropped 1.2 percent since May 15, when investors were speculating on the currency's advance in record numbers.

OEE, from my end (strictly shorter frame cycles), the current bias remains positive for EURJPY and USDJPY as long as we hold 163 and 120.95, respectively. GBPJPY would need to retake 241.4 to restore a positive bias. Most asian broader indices (except HK) seem to be in positive teritory; thus, I'm not puting much faith in the current Yen moves. Of course, all subject to change.

Japan Ota Says Employment In "Very Good Shape"
Japanese Economy Minister Ota says Japan's employment situation in "very good shape," after April labor survey logs jobless rate at 9-year-low 3.8%. But cautious about sluggish wage growth, suggesting she's closely watching if positive effect of upbeat employment spreads to wages, then consumption. April household spending +1.1% on year, but government says likely due to seasonal education costs.
