USD Could Gain If Global Equities Correct

While some expecting USD U-turn, analysts say a big correction in global equities could keep USD on its unlikely ascent. Lack of fallout from latest tumble in China shares suggests "perhaps investors are learning that...what happens in Shanghai stays in Shanghai," says Brown Brothers Harriman's Marc Chandler, the China scare shows risk of a global slide looms large. Bank of New York's Michael Woolfolk says USD "would benefit from a possible temporary correction in global equity markets, due to its safe-haven status"; but censored Markets' Ashraf Laidi says USD response depends on root cause of an equities slump; if cause home-grown - such as surprisingly weak U.S. data - USD may follow stocks down.

2321 GMT [Dow Jones] Dow Jones technical analysis indicates EUR/JPY to consolidate with bearish bias; daily chart negative with MACD, stochastic bearish. Support at 163.34 (hourly chart), breach of which would target 162.94 (Wednesday low), then 162.31 (uptrend support line from April 19 low of 159.57). Resistance at 163.97 (yesterday's high), then 164.33 (Tuesday and all-time high), breach of which would tilt bias toward positive. Last at 163.76.

sofia kaprikorn i've learnt over the last couple weeks(high tuition) that macd signals occur a few time frames before actual turn of mkt, whether its a crossover or a divergence. although daily usdjpy has shown cross selling it off that alone
will eat you up mentally and financialy. the same was true with cable near 2.01. if you go back and look at charts.

tnx for that notice JJ - I really have missed that commentary...
but Daily chart speaks loud enough - if you connect the first 2 tops (29.01 -- 12.02) you get a slightly descending Resistance trendline - it was broken and now is acting as Support - - just look that we have 4 days of settlements above 121.40/50 and todays Low is right on the line..
-- this zoomed picture calls for a Bullish move above 122

looks to me like a trend.... USDJPY... AUDUSD... NZDUSD...USDCAD... most are looking , why it should turn around... CHINESE Stock market and all the other negative things in this world.... personally I do believe, that we are in REAL FX Trends like we did not have for 2 decades now... the world is not so bad... NO CRASH in CHINA.. and NO FINISHING with Carry trends... minimum 3 to 5 years more to come... My expected levels (I would oviously change my thinking as well, if....) CHINA Stocks 20 000... USDJPY 160.00... AUDUSD 1.10.... NZDUSD 1.0000.. USDCAD 0.8500.... all the best and most probably most will not like what I wrote, because they want more details.... gl gt

a retest of the breakout area is normal so not to be discuraged if your long $Y. if youre short careful as 122.17 has started to pull this thing . also BC has said many times not to short when 20ma is on the rise.

Sofia Kaprikorn 21:12 GMT May 31, 2007 Reply   
now the USDJPY begins more to look like Rising Wedge.. so it's very important whether it will break Up or Down...
however the Break above 121.80 was a fake out so maybe the bearish scenario here might work..
but who knows with this pair - everything is possible..

Loonie: no change, predictable, people see it short but dont dare because they fear the correction.. dont worry, correction will come when collective mind thinks that it will short some more. Possible target is between 10856 and 10945. Possible correction take off is 10568 or 10668....

Swissy: still above 12254, so e/u can cruise between 13512+20 =stop and 13402.

Bugger: 16318 seen every day for a while now, so is 16370, nice levels up and down.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The Spanish government has filed claims in U.S. federal court over a shipwreck that a Florida firm found laden with colonial-era treasure, an attorney said Thursday.

If the vessel was Spanish or was removed from that country's waters, any treasure would belong to Spain, said James Goold, an attorney representing the government. Click here

Now it made me think, and yes i can think, wouldn't the countries where the gold and silver was extracted made a claim as well ??

Re. $/JPY and momentum past 122 - if eur/jpy is any indication (at 164 the other day), stops could be minor, selling heavy - outlandish conspiracy theory #177: though we don't hear much about them these days, Japanese importers/exporters always seemed pretty canny. I would guess that exporters have been holding on to $'s & euros till the trend wore itself out, and will then jump back in if it drops a yen or two; while importers will start waiting to buy $ and euros until the next bottom, maybe 115'ish?... China, of course, is the elephant in the kitchen.....Anyway, except for quick ones, I'm out till the direction is clearer....

HK Kevin 14:24 GMT May 31, 2007 - Some big boys are protecting USDJPY and keeping selling JPY on all crosses. Take note of the Year End high of USDJPY is 122.20. Yen bears Speculators want to break it and target 122.50/60. But BOJ will not let it go to 125 and verbal intervention will come, as what they did it in 2006. During this year of CNY progressive appreciation, YEN has no reason to fall further against USD. Hmm.. time for Carry trade to take profit from today aggressive moves. Good trade and Good luck.

Don't get me wrong, I think she's bang on. I shorted yesterday at 11:50 Eastern, but closed this morning. But those were on technical indicators, not news.... I was about to pull the trigger myself on another short when I saw the headline, then stopped to think about it...Just a question of timeframes.

BTW, if you get AFX, check the note on the US economy. It's one of those times that I am actually impressed by economists - came across a bit in Hallwood & MacDonald ("International Money and Finance") that pretty much describes the potential for the slowdown in the US due to falling exchange rates (ontrary to what one naturally would assume) - even though the copy I have was written 6 years ago...

Thanks. Not too bothered actually as some things closed well earlier this week. Im looking for EURUSD (now at 1.3445)to make an extended correction below the last lows testing 1.3350 The last move bounced nicely off the .618 retrace in the last intraday high 1.3475. The previos leg down looks like a stereotypical 5 wave so odds are we continue to new near term lows. glgt

Somethig also to note (for those that sell USD/CAD on bad news) - the weak construction numbers are as bad for Canada as for the US, as lumber exports to our southern neighbor a economically important....My own view is that $CAD is going to relax a bit from here, maybe up to 1.0720's or so but nothing worth (now) going long or short for....

Right now, I have both the eur/jpy and usd/jpy knocking up against some pretty significant limits - esp. 164 in eur/jpy, but also around 121.85 in usd/jpy. In eur/jpy it's been pretty much a month of flat-lining, in usd/jpy about 2 weeks, so it wouldn't surprise me to see it start falling as specs start putting mid term money into something more profitable...Kampo & PAR, of course, excluded :)

..."WASHINGTON, May 25 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice-premier Wu Yi left here Friday for home after co-chairing with U.S. Secretary of Treasury Henry Paulson a successful second meeting of the Strategic Economic Dialogue (SED) between the two countries. ... Both sides agreed that the 2nd SED enhanced mutual understanding with much consensus and a wide variety of tangible results."...

(Dow Jones)--Financial markets have become more resilient, but that doesn't mean risks are benign, Terrence Checki, executive vice-president of the Federal Reserve's emerging markets and international affairs group, said Thursday.

A brief spell of market volatility at the end of February stemming from China that rippled across international markets didn't have a major market impact, Checki said.

"You would need a magnifying glass to see it against the backdrop of historic volatility," he added.

However, policy risks and risk appreciation assessments tilt the balance toward financial risk, he said.

"It hardly seems just to current market conditions to describe them as benign," Checki said.

The complexity of linkages in credit derivative products and structures could mean that investors, and regulators, may be unaware of problems.

"It's not at all clear today - in the event of stress - who will own the problem," Checki said.

He also referred to increased investment by industrialized countries in emerging markets with improving financial structures amid ample liquidity is akin to a "big fish swimming in a small pond."

"This could be a source of unusual price action and induce stress," Checki said.

Furthermore, investors shouldn't assume that abundant global liquidity will endure.

"Liquidity is ephemeral - it disappears at the most inconvenient of times," Checki said.

Interesting FT article:

FT - Senate leaders are close to finalising legislation that they hope will lead to a reversal of long-standing US policy of opposing intervention in currency markets, according to people familiar with the matter. The Senate bill is to be introduced in the next month and will mandate the US Treasury to intervene in global markets if currencies become fundamentally "misaligned", people involved in the process said. The consensus in Congress in favour of currency legislation hardened after talks with China led by Hank Paulson, the Treasury secretary, failed to secure big concessions on trade and foreign exchange imbalances. The bill has not been finalised but details are emerging as Democrats and Republicans seek to build a veto-proof majority. The legis-lation is an attempt by a bipartisan coalition of Senate leaders to correct what they view as tactical and strategic failures in US international economic policy over the past decade. For four years the Bush administration has opposed intervention in currency markets as part of an attempt to isolate and pressure China into embracing exchange-rate flexibility. But congressional leaders now believe that effort has failed to sway Beijing and has inhibited co-ordinated policy action through the Group of Seven industrialised nations over other weak currencies such as the yen. The US has not intervened in currency markets since 2000 and has thwarted co-ordinated action by European ministers at the G7. Analysts said the administration was likely to resist pressure to shift its stance now but would find it increasingly politically costly to rely on a strategy of persuasion with China.

GBPUSD has a double bottom around 1.9735 (so I see your technical view of risk at 37...)

also there is a trendline Support from May 23 low -- recent Bottom..

Daily chart:: we can find rising trend line from Mar 30 -- May 21... Support then can located around 1.9710..
-- however if 37 gives way - then 1.9675 low might be challenged

Says GBP/USD's retreat from $1.99 has taken some of the "hawkish froth" out of the currency (now $1.9743) but it still sees short-term upside for EUR/GBP, possibly testing GBP0.6860

Highlights

BoJ member Kiyohiko Nishmura says CPI is likely to rise more clearly in the H2 2007/08, though CPI likely to stay around 0% for the time being. BoJ needs to adjust rates (hike rates) in line with the economy and prices.

Low rates could distort fund flows and asset allocation, though no signs of worrying moves in asset prices now, but always need to be cautious.

Australian Treasury David Gruen, speaking to parliament, says the higher AUD has a stabilising affect on the economy. Australia's terms of trade were at the highest level in 50 years.

Gruen says part of the stabilising effect on the economy as a whole of dealing with a situation where one part of the economy is growing very rapidly, is the shock absorber role that the FX (AUD) plays by appreciating, and the real FX has appreciated substantially less than the terms of trade has gone up. So that's quite unusual - Reuters.

WSJ article : Fed officials appeared to have gained confidence about economic expansion but harbored "considerable uncertainty" that inflation would slow as hoped.

Overall, Fed officials agreed that core inflation remains "uncomfortably high," even though it has edged down to nearly 2%, a level that is preferred by many Fed officials.

Australia Q1 new Capex +9.1%, twice expectation of +4.0%. Q1 building capex +17.2%, plant/ machinery +6.1%.

Australia trade gap for April at AUD962m, wider than AUD800m exp, from -AUD1.628b in March.

Australia Private April sector credit at +1.2%m/m, housing credit at +0.9%m/m.

NBNZ business confidence survey shows a net 48.3% expecting the economy to deteriorate over next 12 months, sharply lower from 19.4% in previous survey, signalling RBNZ likely to refrain from hiking.

Japan May Manufacturing PMI falls to 28-month lows of 51.4 from 52.3 in April. Japan PMI output prices index rises to 51.1, its highest this year. - Reuters.

Japan net foreign bond investment -Y445.5bln in week ended May 26. Net Japan stock investment +261.3bln.

Relatively quiet market, with Singapore away for holiday.

USD/JPY traded tight range, capped by good offers, said to be >$1-2bln ahead of 121.90-122.00 options triggers, while bids still at 121.20-30, with focus on China stocks after the hike in stamp duty to 0.3% from 0.1%.

China stocks opened down and then extended losses below key 4,000/ 3,900 to lows of 3,858, falling >4%, before rebounding back to 4,000, and helping to stabilize cross/JPY after earlier selling on fears of risk aversion, carry trades unwinding.

USD/JPY dip to day lows to 121.46, before edging up as stocks recover, real money demand still at 121.20-30 supporting.

EUR/JPY under pressure, some focus on the EUR16.2bln Italian eurozone bonds and coupons due tom, June 1.

AUD/USD rallied to hit highs of 0.8243 from 0.8230 on strong capex, with AUD/JPY back above 100. AUD/NZD back up again on slump in NBNZ confidence, strong AUD comments from Treasury Gruen, after earlier sales from Swiss names.

US houses have been good AUD buyers, helped by MS-Investa AUD4.7b cash M+A. US houses good buyers of NZD/USD.

EUR/USD bids at 1.34 lows, options, sovereign interest. Asian bids. GBP still finding demand on dips at 1.97 lows.

Thanks friend. i actually needed to know how the yen fixing works and helps. i came across in the help forum some material which says the yen fixing is used by importers. so wondered how could someone buy dollars at a rate which could be away from marke spot - as a fixing is always a polled rate and could be different from the spot rate. anyways thanks.

the following info could be useful -

The European Central Bank (ECB) sets currency fixings every working day in Frankfurt at 2:15 p.m. Frankfurt time. The actual procedure of this fixing is done by observing the spot rates in the inter bank market, in which the ECB also participates. Traders of the ECB in various locations get together to decide on
how to set the fixing. The quantity quoted is not a bid price or an offer price the ECB or anybody else necessarily trades at, but is rather used for statistical and official means, for instance tax computation or economic research.

NZ Confidence Weak Enough To Stop June Hike-UBS
Robin Clements of UBS says slump in May business confidence should be enough to prevent RBNZ from hiking again next week; "we were erring in this direction in the first place, based upon the deterioration in consumer confidence already detected and the suggestion that it was too early to judge the impact of the latest rate hikes." Says confidence survey suggests rate hikes in March, April and high NZD are biting. "All the more reason to wait and see, in our view."

NZD/USD Up; Braced For Fall As Confidence Slumps

NZD/USD heads toward modestly higher close, but off its session highs around 0.7310; traders braced for a possible sharp correction heading into offshore session as markets digest big slump in NZ May business confidence to its lowest level in over a year. Deutsche Bank senior dealer Sean Brown says Kiwi underpinned for now by demand out of Japan, but expects NZD to weaken over next 24-48 hours, particularly on TWI basis, as investors price in reduced chance of RBNZ rate hike next week; "The market seems to be short (kiwi) at the moment, so the pair is taking time to come off." Pegs support at 0.7250, resistance 0.7310/0.7315 overnight. NZD/USD last 0.7297

Business confidence in New Zealand declined sharply to its lowest level in over a year in May - hurt by two recent rate hikes - and firms' own activity expectations also fell, a survey published Thursday showed.

A net 48% of businesses surveyed expect business conditions to worsen over the next 12 months, compared with a net 19% in April, according to the National Bank of New Zealand's Business Outlook survey.

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

In Thursday's survey, 7.8% of firms said they expected their own activity to increase - an eight month low - compared with 22.5% a month earlier.

China shares reverse brief early gains, now falling as government's move to triple stamp duty still rippling through market; Shanghai Composite down 2.1% at 3969.36 in light trade, under key 4000 mark, with analysts putting support at 3900, near 30-day moving average.

0009 GMT [Dow Jones] JPY-crosses like NZD/JPY, AUD/JPY now falling on sales by short-term overseas players, but may rebound in near term on continued buying by Japanese for investment in foreign bonds, says trader at Japan bank; "Demand for overseas securities is still solid in Japan given its ultra-low interest rates." Adds, summer bonus payment in June will likely inflate demand for foreign investment further, which in turn may help boost crosses; "Even if risk-aversion grows, (crosses are) unlikely to fall much for a while."
