Submitting mortgage apps to multiple lenders is not new this month. Has gone on for several years and scores of months. Even so, there are not multiple sets of guidelines anymore for so many creative options. Less likely to submit to so many places now because there is Fannie, Fred and....?

austin mw - not sure about the USA but UK and Aus etc must be many in the 20-35 yr bracket just waiting in the wings for a chance to buy a house once all the noise is over , was reading yesterday a house on Sydney harbour sold for $1.5m in 1995 recently now valued over $15 mil , that kind of return is too tempting to resist , as they say when the streets are running with blood time to buy

Syd, re mortgage applications. I found something out today
that I wasn't aware of and that is a person can submit
the same application to say 5 lenders and that counts as
5 so this can be very misleading.

Wider-than-consensus Australian November trade deficit would weigh on AUD/USD on increased risk fears, National Australia Bank senior currency strategist John Kyriakopoulos says. Notes large trade and current account deficit "matters much more to investors when they're risk-averse and cautious about lending." Trade data due 0030 GMT; economists on average expect deficit to narrow to A$2.5 billion from record A$2.98 billion in October.

hks for ur answer, it s sufficient for me now to know u agree on possible weakness of aussie. For it concerns tomorrow i remember mkt expectations on november decision at Boe meeting when majority of analysts considered a cut quite sure and after Boe unmoved pound rocketed north agst all the rest of ccies. It s true that tom (at least for official forecasts and expectations) mkt is beting more on a no move than a cut, but (unofficially speaking i mean) after last datas and news come out from UK i think that the major disappoint (just to force many to cover the big short of pound open a mom agst the rest of the qorld) cud be on a no move decision.

$1bn hit to banks from US
AUSTRALIA'S big four banks have a $1billion direct exposure to the US sub-prime mortgage market, despite months of assurances that they were immune from the deepening financial crisis.The CBA, NAB, ANZ and Westpac's exposure to the US sub-prime market comes through an almost $1billion investment in troubled US mortgage group Countrywide Financial, which appears close to collapse. The major players were part of a syndicate of 40 banks around the world that threw the embattled lender an $US11.5billion ($13 billion) financial lifeline last year. The CBA and the NAB invested $300million each, while the ANZ pumped $150 million into the deal and Westpac $100 million. Countrywide has been one of the biggest victims of the sub-prime credit crunch, and is facing a battle to survive. The shares in the US's largest independent lender plunged by almost 30 per cent on Tuesday night after rumours emerged on Wall Street the company was seeking bankruptcy protection. The potential loss by the Australian banks is a further sign the sub-prime crisis has the potential to damage the domestic economy.

I don't know what you mean about "defeat" unless the 1500 pips vanish from 2.1113. Otherwise the current swing and hedge will be unwound about 80 pips lower unless we get a pop higher then I'll simply (and quietly) scale out.

Reminds me of USDCAD going furher down as possible imagined(from 1,18 to 0,91).

JERUSALEM (AFP)--The White House Wednesday warned Iran over a weekend confrontation between Iranian speedboats and U.S. warships in the Strait of Hormuz.

"I think the point that that shows is this was a very provocative act by the Iranians, and it could have - and came very close to - resulting in an altercation between our forces and their forces," National Security Advisor Stephen Hadley told reporters.

"And it's a warning to them: They've got to be very careful about this, because if it happens again, they are going to bear the consequences of that incident," he said.

I took a few pips yesterday, and less today – but profit is profit. The way the market goes.


I gather you are using the Elliott wave theory. Something I need to learn more about. Have collected a lot of info, have a basic understanding, but need the time to process and digest it, get the book/s, etc. It is an area that is lacking in my understanding, and can see that it can add a lot to my trading, and give an understanding of other aspects of trading which effect the price movement.

- The posting of target figures without explanation has lead to many frustrated, unfounded arguments.

- All information is good information as long as it can be evaluated.

With the opening of the EUR market it appears that the EUR/USD could be range bound again today.

Levels to be broken for the range:

Support around 1.4700 from the 4hr chart
23.6% fib on 30 min chart 1.4702
23.6% fib on 4hr chart 1.4702
I4 daily pivot 1.4701

Resistance around 1.4744
50% fib on 30 min chart 1.4744
Monthly I6 pivot 1.4742


The daily pivot at 1.4709 makes an interesting level as does 1.4744

Recent UK data has given little clues to how the MPC will act on Thursday, and UBS's economists believe the committee will wait until after the February Inflation report before cutting rates. However, the bank says a sustained dovish monetary policy outlook, combined with stress in the UK and global financial markets exposes sterling to further weakness. UBS has a one month forecast of 0.75 for EUR/GBP, but says with significant negative news already priced in and the euro already overvalued, cable is a better way to express a negative sterling view. The bank has cable forecasts of 1.96 over one month, and 1.93 on a three month horizon.UBS

WSJ: Bush Looks to Reprise. Tax-Relief Measures Stimulus Proposal Echoes the Rebates, Breaks Given in '01. Faced with recession fears, White House is considering tax rebates for individuals to encourage spending and tax breaks for businesses to encourage investment.

The plan, if finalized by the Administration and passed by Congress, would mark President George Bush's first major steps to address the broad economic slowdown. He has limited himself to addressing the wave of home foreclosures and the Wall Street chaos caused by the collapse of the subprime-mortgage market.

World Bank's Hans Timmer, speaking to Reuters, said on the USD did not need to depreciate much further but expressed concern its value will diminish further if the US substantially cuts interest rates to ward off an economic recession.

John McCain wins the New Hampshire Republican primary. Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee they'll fight on. Exit polls showed issues swayed Democrats but Republicans were moved by personality - CNN.

Hillary Clinton has won the New Hampshire Democratic race, defeating Sen Barack Obama. Obama congratulated Clinton, but adds he is still "fired up and ready to go."

NKS: Publicly offered mutual funds are believed to have incurred an investment loss of around Y4trillion ($36.7bln) in 2007, the first red ink in 5 years, due to a sharp decline in the prices of Japanese shares and other assets. The net asset balance of these funds totalled Y78trillion ($715.6b) as of 30 Nov 2007.

* A day of 2-halves again, as market "changed" turned in the afternoon session in Asia after WSJ article that President Bush/ White House is considering tax relief for individuals and businesss and stimulus to help the economy, triggering Cross/JPY demand, firmer Nikkei and Asian stocks and sentiment, with Nikkei closing up 0.49% at 14.599.16 vs day lows of 14,271.57, and USD/JPY hitting day highs 109.55 from 109.15-20, and Cross/JPY all sharply higher.

This is in contrast with the start of the First Half where Asian stocks opened lower, Cross/JPY under pressure after US stocks losses on AT&T warning and also Countrywide rumours.

USD/JPY, Cross/JPY also all firmer on fresh waves of buying, talks of Japanese custodian, regional bks, Japan government pension funds, lifers buying at fixing for new investment and Japanese equities, while offshore sold Nikkei and Cross/JPY.

EUR/JPY hit day highs 161.45-47 from 160.70-80.

AUD big mover, hit 0.8845 from 0.8795 on strong retail sales, raising chances of RBA hike on Feb to 7.00%, but ran into strong Swiss, option sales ahead of 0.8850 (part of 0.8550-8850 Asian owned).

AUD/JPY rallied up to 96.50 up 95.70, AUD/NZD hit 1-m highs 1.1490.

EUR, GBP, EUR/JPY, GBP/JPY rally.

Nikkei rebound sharply, +70.49pts or 0.49% at 14,599.16. JGBs a tad firmer, 10-yr yield +0.005% at 1.465%.

AUD Set For Rocky Year On Global Volatility -ANZ
AUD set for challenging 2008 as concerns for global outlook will weigh, even if rate spreads lend some support, says ANZ currency strategist Tony Morriss. Notes rate differentials already at extremes; much depends on performance of USD in coming year. Says "weaker world growth and higher inflation is not a good combination for riskier assets." Says greater volatility, muted risk appetite makes less likely AUD/USD will regain ground. Expects pair to struggle above 0.9000 level; key longer term support at 0.8330. AUD/USD now 0.8812 from 0.8842 earlier.

BOJ Likely To Hike Twice in 2008 - Rabobank
2 rate hikes of 25 bps each still most likely scenario for Japan in 2008, Rabobank analyst Jan Lambregts says; prediction contradicts general market take, with overnight interest-rate swaps pricing in only 6bp rise over next 12 months, according to Credit Suisse. Many observers feel BOJ can't hike when Fed is in rate-cut mode, also see Japan economy stalling, but Lambregts says country's "recovery remains intact and should receive an artificial boost from a substantial rebound in construction spending during 1H08...we'd argue the worst is likely to already be behind us." However, notes that uncertainty over successor to BOJ Gov. Fukui, who steps down in March, could complicate rate hike issue.

Bush convenes Plunge Protection Team
Keep an eye on Japan, still the world's top creditor by far, with $3 trillion in net foreign assets. The Bank of Japan has been the biggest single source of liquidity for the global asset boom over the last five years. An army of investors - Japanese insurers and pension funds, housewives and hedge funds borrowing at near zero rates in Tokyo - have sprayed money across the Antipodes, South Africa, Brazil, Turkey, Iceland, Latvia, the US commercial paper market and the City of London.

The Japanese are now bringing the money home, as they always do when the cycle turns. The yen has risen 13pc against the dollar and 12pc against sterling since the summer. We are witnessing the long-feared unwind of the "carry trade", valued by BNP Paribas in all its forms at $1.4 trillion.

China is quietly revaluing the yuan
The People's Bank of China may at last be substantially revaluing its currency - even if officially it has told no-one.

(sorry about the typos) the eur/usd 1.43 low will be intact for some time to come. when it reached thoat level, it was the recurring trough before the steep incline. that is the pattern it has followed ytd.

U.K. consumer confidence stayed subdued in December, reaching its lowest level since February 2007, despite the Bank of England's cutting interest rates to 5.5% from 5.75%, data from U.K. lender Nationwide showed Wednesday.

The Nationwide survey showed that consumer confidence fell to 85 in December from 86 in November. In February last year it also stood at 85.

"Another weak month for consumer confidence isn't surprising given current economic conditions," said Fionnuala Earley, Nationwide's chief economist. "Further rate cuts expected in the first quarter of 2008 may help to improve matters, but it is likely to be a few months before consumer confidence recovers to levels seen earlier (in 2007)."
