very well put..
I was out today at NFP time and just watched the quotes on mobile.. it is the reality now thatUSD strength is demonstrated in the USDJPY and the crosses as the main theme for the markets ...
and it will remain like this I guess until some day Yen drops from 129 to 110 in 1 week -- then perhaps things will change and market will find a new theme to follow..

a tribute here to Oil Man's remarks that at the end only Trend followers will survive - - I had many times tried to fade both commodity ccy's and Yen crosses but it proves to be a tiring business instead of going with the trends in all Yen crosses..

re. NZD/JPY, it's in a retrace now, but keep an eye on the rising resistance connecting the high on June 7 and June 24 on the dailies, it gives a reasonable estimate of where the interventions/retracements might occur. That pair is (over the period) growing at about 50%/year, I would expect RBNZ to start nudging it down to something more sustainable. I would guess (only a guess) that another good buy-in should occur in the 94-95 region, wait and see. Something to keep in mind is that a CB is free to intervene without announcing the fact, they only make announcements when it suits their purpose.

Lovely move on EURGBP. GBPUSD looks on course for a rebound to 2.0115/30 while EURUSD may just skip a further drop altogether and try for 1.3660. USDJPY cant seem to capitalize on the news so we probably lose some footing below 123.00 (a buy?). See a similar .6780/90 level on the EURGBP but .6740 should hold.

More likely values I do see for NFPs is some between 110 and 140K which will not provide imo more than some 20-30 pips moves, say in reference to the EurUsd. Less for UsdJpy maybe a 10 pips more for Gbp. Particlarly the lower reading, the higher readings if around 140K will provide Usd strenght for some 10-20 pips on most pairs.

Wider if for previous post readings.

regarding NFPs a minor fundamental analysis shows levels in between some 90K to 160K will not change basically trends, but provide room either ways for big micro swings. Out of those levels is food for thought for pfolio mechanics.

Yeap pity me.. Ive seen that potential over 117 coupla days ago but did not reverse, just flatten down as the shooting star figure from previous week was cleaned out as a downtrend potential stopping notch around 115 with subsequent retreat higher again. More or less as the UsdJpy as I see It.

As I see Eurusd potential for extension below today low somewhere 1.3550 is fully intact from the trend established, so far the data risk is for catching stops behind 1.3620/30 too. So this is a pure market fishing enviroment we do assist at current. Not worth gambling with markets at current imvho.

Rio Tinto braced for aluminium bid battle - Daily Telegraph

The Daily Telegraph reports Rio Tinto is drawing up plans to gatecrash the $28 bln hostile bid battle being fought between the North American miners Alcan (AL) and Alcoa (AA). Rio Tinto is understood to have engaged Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank to advise it on a range of options, including a bid for Alcan. Another possibility is a bid for Alcoa although this is thought less likely. The appointment of the two banks comes after the hiring of Morgan Stanley by Alcan, which is trying to fend off the unwelcome approach from Alcoa. People close to the process said last night that Rio Tinto had asked Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank to explore "strategic opportunities" in the mining sector, which is undergoing a round of global consolidation. Rio Tinto is thought to have already held tentative talks with Alcan's mgmt about a counter-offer for the Canadian aluminium miner, which received the $28 bln hostile bid from Alcoa at the beginning of May. It was not clear last night what stage the discussions between Rio Tinto and Alcan had reached. Alcan is attractive to Rio Tinto because it would bring valuable alumina and bauxite reserves. However, bankers with knowledge of Rio Tinto's plans said it is keen to get hold of Alcan and Alcoa's aluminium mining assets, although less likely to be interested in Alcoa's downstream metal production businesses and its packaging subsidiaries. Companhia Vale do Rio Doce (RIO) is also thought to have shown interest in making a counter offer for Alcan.

Foreigners don’t invest in Nikkei and the locals don’t do it either. This is why Nikkei is one of the worst performing stock market in 2007 in USD terms.

Linda Goldberg and Eleanor Wiske Dillon say (in an article in the latest issue of a New York Fed journal): "Our analysis reveals that a USD depreciation is unlikely to close the trade gap single-handedly." They argue that although the weak USD has been a boon to foreign consumers of US products, because almost all US imports are invoiced in USDs, import prices exhibit an "insensitivity" to exchange rate changes. They note: "The unresponsiveness of US import prices to a USD depreciation suggests that any substantial trade balance adjustment achieved through exchange rate changes must come instead from a reduction in export prices." They also note: "Improvement in the trade balance following a USD depreciation will most likely be achieved instead through increased foreign purchases of newly affordable US goods. Nevertheless, if the nation's consumption patterns are not 'rebalanced' away from imports, then the total adjustment in US trade following the depreciation of the USD could still fall markedly short of expectations."

I have a strange feeling that actually usdjpy is leading the moves - and it might sound silly - but isn't it supposed to buy Yen to invest in Nikkei?

Another interesting thing is how we relate the EURGBP movement to the FTSE / DAX differential?

Sofia Kaprikorn 09:41 GMT July 6, 2007//Thanks. I use Fib targets on extensions of swings and retracements. Then i set up a matrix to determine the clusters. EW is just to determine the important swing highs/lows and also to weigh the targets according to likely position in the count (3s get higher targets 4s get lower retracements than 1s etc).

Commo has nicely realigned my attention to the JPY which is pobably going to get back into action after a week of limited consolidation. So scratch my GBPJPY s/t short.

Commo// If we get a dropp becuase of the numbers it would be a buying opportunity imo. s/t your stop area predictions look good and could get us some buytime around the 122.40 to 122.70 (if it gets there as it doesnt have to especially if the numbers are particularly strong).

EurUsd similarily has yet risk to develop further lower late today provided 1.3610/20 holds. Am suspicius this NFP will not deviate much from expectations, hence some 30 pips fast risks around there if market stays as current.

yes - I see your point - I actually based my analysis attempt on the ranges of the consolidation - high 247.92 // and low around 246.55 --
>> standard idea is that one needs to see a breakout of the Resistance - it actually looks more like Ascending Triangle - as the top is almost flat and the Support line is rising - so the Upside break is Favoured...

btw - yesterday you spotted NZD Res levels very nicely..
was it some EW + Fib levels that you used for your analysis?

In general do see the stops onto UsdJpy to have been raised into 122.60/90 area ahead of NFPs. The latter is to me the most important indicator, bond market particularly - hence forex and equities follows.

Perrie// (usdjpy now at 123.17) I suspect that since the trend line held (8hr chart) we will continue up from here towards 125.00 then test the fib zone of 126.50/90. Can't say how it will behave but s/t if 123.00 holds up then we take out 124.00. IMO. The limited retrace actually sems to me to be an indication that the upside targets will get less build. Your point on two-way is well taken. The move up so far is rather grudging but the last leg has potential to spring it out top-side.

GBPJPY - 4h chart
There arent any three attempts then down (triple-top) rules on their own that seem to work as you know from wedge formations sometimes they create fake outs to the downside then the real move is up (or vice versa if momentum stalls) It does look an interesting sell to me though.

GBPJPY - 4h chart
we have a High at 247.92 - today is 3rd attempt to break the High
is it correct to assume that if the 3rd attempt fails we have downside?

on the Down side we can see SAR at 246.55 - and better 55 MA - 246.70
it is consolidating right now and seems the Yen rethoric in recent days is not causing any concerns..
- so if we have a break of 247.92 - next stop would be 249?

and if 246.70 gives way - next Support is the 244 Low
>I'm not trading it - just post this to get any feedback on my analysis attempt.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Hundreds of dead seabirds that washed up along the Southeast coast in recent weeks apparently starved to death, but experts don't know why.

The deaths of the birds - similar to gulls and called greater shearwaters - have wildlife officials worried about possible changes in the ocean that could have affected the fish that the birds usually eat.

"It's got a lot of folks talking and wondering," said Jennifer Koches, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. "Is this a canary in the coal mine issue? Is there something that serious going on out in the ocean that it should be causing us serious alarm?"

An estimated 1,000 of the dead birds have been found from the Bahamas to Florida and north to the Carolinas, said Craig Watson, a wildlife biologist with the Fish and Wildlife Service.

The theory -

If the jobs report proves strong, interest rates will extend their climb. But a weak report would catch the bond market by surprise, meaning lower rates and in turn declines for the dollar and stocks.

The practice - " Run Forrest , run !!" 8+-) And be prepared for the unexpected.

BRISBANE (AP)--Australian police launched fresh raids Friday in connection with the failed terrorist plot in Britain, seizing computer files and other material from two hospitals in western Australia, the federal police chief said.

Australian Federal Police Commissioner Mick Keelty said computers taken from the hospitals, in the Western Australia state capital of Perth and the Outback mining town of Kalgoorlie, had come into contact with a suspect in the plot arrested in Australia earlier this week.

He said the investigation in Australia - which started with the arrest on Monday of Indian doctor Muhammad Haneef in Queensland state - had also widened to a third state, New South Wales.

Big Mac Index is not reliable. Big Mac in Hong Kong is HKD13.30 or USD1.67. Many ingredients of a Big Mac are supplied from local suppliers of each country and not all imported from US. The index assumes the cost and profit margin of a Big Mac of all other country to be the same as the one in US is also wrong. It extrapolates the PPP (Purchasing Price Parity) exchange rate by a simple forumula is not reliable. It is a humorous illustration only.

Fed's Yellen Favors "Asymmetric Policy Tilt", Inflation Bias

SINGAPORE (Dow Jones)--U.S. monetary policy should be biased toward fighting inflation while not posing unnecessary risks to growth, Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco President Janet Yellen said Friday.

In text of a speech to a conference in Singapore, she said that upside risks to inflation remain and her "best guess" is that the pace of real gross domestic product growth in the U.S. "will pick up a bit in 2007 to a rate just below potential."

"An 'asymmetric policy tilt' seems appropriate given the upside risks to inflation," she said via teleconference. "However, it is also essential that policy retain considerable flexibility in responding to emerging data."

Yellen also said investors may be underestimating the risks of popular "carry trades" - which sell low interest-rate currencies like the yen and buy higher-yielding assets. But she also said she expects the economic fallout from the crisis in subprime mortgages to be limited.

Yellen is the first senior Fed official to speak since the Federal Open Market Committee adopted a slightly less hawkish stance last week.

"Fewer new entrants into the market means less fresh money inflows," says Chen Huiqin at Huatai Securities; notes number of new A-share accounts being opened daily may keep falling as China shares may stay in correction next 2-3 months. "Concerns over further policy tightening and a flood of big IPOs will deter new investors from jumping into the stock market," she adds. Shanghai Composite now down 0.2% at 3609.29

The Big Mac index at The Economist indicates a burger in NZ costs the equivalent of USD 5.89 which makes it thye most expensive in the world. In Australia they state it is ther equivalent of USD 2.95.

I'm floating in the audjpy pond waiting for such a wave. BOJ participants are telegraphing and at some point would be more then happy to sell aud nzd to buy yen just to remind the market this is not a one way street.

Some interesting observations; oil moves higher but gold moving down China seems to have a slow leak in its market as investors are not rushing in on every dip usd weakness is now providing some support for the yen.

If it wasn't for some good numbers out of the US and rising bond yields we might have seen the 122.10 122.20 area punctured. It feels to me like players are slowly taking some risk off the table at least at this point it is civilized but a further fall in the Shanghai index or a break down in gold prices could accelerate things. imho
