Expect carry trades to be "pretty strong across the board" in Asian trade with AUD/USD expected to push back through 0.88 as risk appetite improves, Westpac currency strategist Jonathan Cavenagh says; adds, late rally in Wall Street likely to help return of confidence to risk-asset markets. AUD/USD last 0.8735

hello to all ... stock markets looks currently like a bungee jump that started ... now it will go UP-DOWN-UP-DOWN-UP-DOWN-STOP ... down is down and up is weaker ... then, it will go the whole way up just to go down again for the next jump ... maybe a banality, but members of the global village will gather in Beijing during the coming summer with smiling faces ... after that, better to wait for the real calibers to call the next moves for 2008 and further ... just trade safe, to enjoy the bungee from the fun side

USD expected to rally against JPY after Wall Street finished on strong note but not on other crosses. Equities index futures pointing to stronger share market open in Asia today, likely trigger return to carry-trades. Expect USD/JPY to beat yesterday's high of 107.40, possibly move up to 108.00 though USD likely to come under pressure against other currencies

Yes NY saw some short covering. Guess after Monday it was expected as not follow up on Tuesday on the downside.
Overall my feeling is that stocks should penetrate the 2002/03 rally (post 9/11) before bottoming. It is after all when CBs injected money like nothing everywhere to avoid 9/11 behind the cause of a long term downtrend. We know that since that fact nothing was built with bricks and mortar. So back to square one and start again.
I like that great long term sub 200 gbp/jpy buy zone. 190/185 would be great objective far beyond 300. It's been over 30 years there has not been a monthly buy signal so strong.

If you like shares. I'd buy Societe Generale (CAC 40) if goes to $55.

DJ US Stimulus Talks Continue, As Ideas To Prop Up Econ Roll In
Closed-door talks on an economic-stimulus package continued Wednesday, while rank-and-file lawmakers aired public divisions over the best way to revive the languishing U.S. economy. Key Democrats suggested including measures to address the housing crisis, and designing a second stimulus package to deal with long-term economic issues. A group of conservatives in the House, meanwhile, pitched their own business-centric plan.

EURUSD also on inverted hourly shs. neckling 1.4675 break targerts 1.4800/30 region which is the broken trendline which triggered slide to 1.4375. The terndling was not retested as a resistance since. Dailies may be forming a continuation triangle but still time to let it shape up. I am not a fan of selling Euros at any price above 1.4300 for now.

john 20:44 / two trillion - almost 5% of total GDP.. awsome number: two thousand billion, which in turn are a thousand million each.
Can we expect 30yr bond to 2% or 8% next ? (currently approx 4%)


Given this new bail-out attempt, solvency fears will be replaced with inflationary fears, so 30yr tbonds are heading south(rates heading north to 8pct). I shorted straight after I heard the announcement on the box @120 17/32. Now given the possible confusion with regards to what effect it will have on bonds (weak form market efficient) I believe you still have time to short right now at 120 5/32 and take profit tomorrow at 118.

Good Luck

Funny but that Cramer guy was on last week saying that the best thing the gov could do, rather than give everyone a $1000 check, would be to buy the Bond insurers.

15:39 MBI MBIA Inc: Follow up on Bloomberg story that Banks, New York regulators meet on rescue for bond insurers (16.04 +3.68) -Update- briefing.com

As mentioned at 15:12, Bloomberg.com reports that New York State's insurance regulators met today with U.S. banks to discuss raising new capital for bond insurers, said a department spokesman. Talks in New York with the unnamed banks are part of Insurance Superintendent Eric Dinallo's effort to stabilize the bond guarantors and bolster the market's financial condition, said agency spokesman Andrew Mais in an interview. New capital may help preserve the top credit ratings for the bond guarantors such as MBI, the industry's largest, and halt any erosion of investor confidence in the $2 trillion of assets they guarantee. Ambac Financial Group (ABK), MBI's biggest rival, lost its AAA grade from Fitch Ratings this month on concern about rising defaults tied to subprime mortgages.

I bought some there around 105.30 too but am going to get rid of It soon as stock markets are very sensitive at current. So did not print out that as am never enough sure if It will go exactly the way am thinking. Just to not bring people behind any bad idea by printing out my estimates or as to think It will help my books.

Am also closing down for the day and will maybe come back later to verify if 1.45 eurusd has held.

3 trades a day is much more than enough to me, more is just emotional ocean follower for which am not so present anymore in the forum. Do not like emotional market approaches.

Barclays Capital saying

Cable's key-day reversal accompanied by bullish divergence presented the first evidence of short-covering this year, says Barclays Capital. The pound could now be on the cusp of making a sustainable recovery, says the bank, although it will take a move above 1.96 then 1.98 to squeeze out the trend followers. For this bullish scenario to hold, cable needs to find support above 1.9475, says BarCap.

WELLINGTON (AP)--New Zealand is in a better position than many economies to handle the recent international market volatility, Prime Minister Helen Clark said Wednesday.

"We are in this particular period of international market volatility with the government's finances in good shape, with the country's net debt position in very good shape and we're in a resilient position compared with where New Zealand has been in the past," she said.

Wouldn’t be a pessimist by any chance?

If a trade has been worked out properly, then a placed stop allows for market fluctuations within your trade. To cut a trade short at the first sign of the market going against your entry price can be costly in the long run, especially if this is repeatedly done. Sometimes even tight stops can prove wrong.

Having confidence in your trade is important.

It works the other way as well, too often I have cut profits short.

Jan. 23 (Bloomberg) -- European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet said he's committed to fighting inflation even after stock markets plunged and the U.S. Federal Reserve cut interest rates to avert a recession.

``Particularly in demanding times of significant market correction and turbulences, it is the responsibility of the central bank to solidly anchor inflation expectations to avoid additional volatility,'' Trichet told the European Parliament in Brussels today. The ECB will ensure ``an orderly functioning of the money markets at the level of interest rates required for anchoring the inflation expectations.''

Cable has a positive interday bias with support between 1.9550-25 and immediate resistance at 1.9645, says Royal Bank of Scotland. Above the latter targets, bigger resistance at 1.9770 and 1.9820 with a weekly close above here opens topside risk toward 2.0035 and 2.0250. For a trading strategy the bank favors buying at 1.9560 with a protective stop at 1.9510, targeting 1.9760

Eurjpy, currently at 155.40, today bounced off the 38.2 pct retracement at 157.20 from the 162.27-152.09 move. Now given that yesterday's rate cut is not enough to curb the lingering bankruptcy-financial-collapse fears, expect the major bourses to continue their selloff with the eurjpy heading to its 152ish lows in the next couple of days. Re-evaluate the situation if 157.25 breaks to the topside.

Potential winning scenarios for today:
Eurusd seems to be painting a head and shoulder formation visible on 1min up to 1 h charts. If true, we could expect at least 1.4550 today and if 1.46 turns resistance this could initiate a more pronounced drop to 1,40-1.42 in the days/weeks ahead. Only above 1.4650, the boundary of the right shoulder might fool the croud with another try at 1.4700-1.4750 which I think will be too formidable and will eventually lead to a potential drop to 1.40.
In unison, gbpchf which usually rises with the dollar, today managed to to escape form below 2.14 levels an looks good for 2.18+++.
To conclude, I sell eur at current levels, stop at 1.4770, limit 1,42. I buy gbpchf at current levels, risking the daily low, limit 2.1779. GL+GT!!!

DJ MARKET TALK: RBA Has No Choice But To Hike Rates - JPM

RBA little other option now but to hike interest rates in face of turmoil on global markets as 4Q core, headline inflation signals inflation now "pretty serious problem," says JP Morgan Australia chief economist Stephen Walters. Says "inflation genie needs to be put back in the bottle," expects RBA to hike rates 25 bps to 7.0% at February meeting

Syd,
I have the feeling that RBA's interest rates themselves are the prime underlying cause of Australian inflation.
These are and have been ridiculously high by global standards and are probably the worst in the developed world with the exception of NZ which is somewhat unique.
Over the last years as Asian trade has developed, the change to the third world state of Australian markets, which existed basically since the formation of the EU in the late 60's, has required a new paradigm which the RBA has not yet twigged to.
The recent series of interest rates has showed a close corellation with inflationary figures with inflation lagging intrest rate rises by approximately 2 months. The previous government did much to mitigate the effects of these interest rate rises which prevented the the worst inflationary effects. What will the current lot do? If they dont do the same then the punters have only wages or further borrowings to be able to survive.
The silly bit is that in the month following a rate rise the RBA congratulates itself that their strategy works without apparently realising that it will cause more inflation in next months figures. Or is it deliberate?
The continual high interest rates has stffled investment in true productive capacity for some years now. This applies to materials and the skilled workforce.
I could rave on a lot with modelling and fundamental influences through the supply chain but best not now.

While there's much uncertainty in global markets right now, strength of core inflation in 4Q means RBA is likely to respond with rate hike in February, says Phil O'Donaghue, senior economist at Deutsche Bank.

Syd 00:09 / Oz CPI probably not safely tradeable - too much trimmed here and there. See it differently ?

Tallinn viies 22:36 / so according to Ashraf Laidi the FED is trying to swat at two flies 1) recession and 2) hastily attempting to instill some semblance of stability in a free-falling financial market environment.

What is presumptous of the FED is that it thinks it needs to somehow be seen trying to get ahead of the market rather than being behind and be wagged by it. it is too bad that the FED didn't take the opportunity to raise rates and teach the market Trouble is that the financial portion of the market will not get its mountains of toxic paper somehow resolved even IF the FED were to go to ZERO rate. The only cure is time and pain: further house price collapse and further housing builder collapse to get the house supply coming onstream reduced dramatically.

SYD,

Looks like aud/usd is marching up to 0.90 again, and assuming another 50bp cut by the feds next week.
