Expect AUD/USD Range 0.8950-0.9150 In Asia - NAB [Dow Jones] AUD/USD resistance currently at 0.9150 with key support around 100-day moving average of 0.8950 after fall in U.S. session on improvement in USD and global equities markets, National Australia Bank senior currency strategist John Kyriakopoulos says. Notes strong Wall Street rebound supporting investors' risk appetite with NAB risk appetite index highest since Feb. 27, climbing to 53.7% from 45.8% yesterday. Notes recovery in carry-trades on improved risk appetite has helped cushion blow for AUD/USD. However, softer RBA tones adding to expectation for rate cuts by year end. "Headwinds for the AUD from the market pricing in rate cuts have strengthened." AUD/USD last 0.9072

Cairo AG,

Thanks AG, I still like eur/gbp long as I see cable to reach 1.96 and even 1.93 and I expect BOE to cut rates, so buying on dips for 80 is better I think. Thanks for the reply and good trades to you.

As for eur/gbp, seems like the 5th wave in on its wave and should end at 80xx but the problem is I am not sure if it has ended and we are on our way down or wave 5 is still on its way up.

Probably the wave expert London Nyam can share his view on this pair. Tia

USA BAY 22:23 GMT April 1, 2008 Reply   
Looking at the eur/usd chart, it does seems like a reversal is possible, 1.5905 is probably the top of wave 3 and in that case we could see 1.5540 and then 1.49xx is a big possibility unless the NFP numbers comes out extremely bad.

Ok guys, the 1000-pip trades are here again (I would've called them 2 days ago, but I prefer to make it a bit harder ;-))))

SELL EUR/USD for 1.47 (1.5340 break (first) leads to 1.5170, next 1.4970 and last 1.47)

BUY USD/CHF for 1.08 (1.250 break goes striaght there)

SELL EUR/GBP for at least 0.76 (0.74 better).

Enjoy the pips, forget the rest guys, it's all said and done now.

Smoke and Mirrors : Trader Daily on a Bloomberg report about Lehman not needing more capital hits the nail on the head. If the shop "is shooting us straight on not really needing that $3 billion-plus it's planning on raising anyway from a share sale, then it means that the perception of monsters under the bed on Wall Street is now officially scarier than the reality. Banks raising money they don't need to reassure clients they probably don't want who happen to have overactive imaginations? Zounds, the world we live in." The firm's CFO noted ``We still maintain that we don't need capital, but we've realized that perception is the dominant issue in today's markets.'' NOw its $4B (that they probably don't need) (Bloomberg)

NZD/USD will remain under the gun of sellers today as yield interest in Kiwi fails to make comeback, looks unlikely in near term, says ANZ Bank; tips support at technical level of 0.7777 to be critical today. Notes with Kiwi briefly breaching important support of 0.7806 overnight, pair now vulnerable. Plus weak commodities and euro's steep losses overnight also weighing. "If this combination continues - and the tenor of official NZ data turns out as lead indicators suggest - the bird (Kiwi) looks set to continue riding down the elevator." DJ

On EUR/USD -ref. the 1d 50p tracker gives channel touch parameters as
1,6027 & 1,5158 putting price at the 50% for the moment.
POC for the development range seen as 1,5385.
The march 20th pull back on low was invalid for the 1,6 target in the channel.
Thus the expansion development phase is at hand.
The long term bias will remain intact in front the 1,5158 TYK fix.
Happy trading……….

shanghai bc said in early March post; I planned to hit on the subject again today, but the broad market has cycle classes that have survived the course of history. They are broken into major classes...financial assets versus physical assets. A Russian economic model was fashioned after the creator's name in early 1900's (spelling?), his name being Konderief (phonetic). Basically, he identified the historical 60 yr. cycle, and further broke down stages of asset classes, including a more dominant 20-24 yr. physical asset (commodities) cycle of extreme movement. The value of currencies is a product of the bigger picture of supply/demand of asset classes.

If you suscribe at all to this theoredical thinking, then we are still in a commodity bull cycle, albeit with the most challenging of times in cycle dynamics. Time will tell if it is "different" this time, ad naseum re: the internet boom/ bust cycle. I doubt it.

Bottom line, for the greatest portion of retail traders... these are good times to let the markets figure it out, government this or that, banks blah blah blah. Temptation should give way
to sanity... and let things unfold. Most retail guys are gonna take e la hit in here now ... it's always the little guy who suffers most.

Everything in this universe has a cycle..Same for the assets markets..Same for the nations and the political systems..In financial markets,it is a cycle from hard assets to paper assets and vice versa..Chinese have kept the record of those cycles for the last several thousand years and found repeating cycles for everything too..

We had the so called new tech-era of 1980-2000 with paper assets going to the roof while hard assets lagged behind..Since the bubble of the paper assets burst in 2000,it is the cycle of hard assets going to the roof while the paper assets lag behind..It has always been the cycle between these two assets even in ancient China for several thousand years....Chinese divided 60 years as a grand cycle with 30 years as the cycle dividing the up and down of that cycle..

S&P Cuts UBS Rating Following More Write-Downs
Standard & Poor's cut its credit rating on Swiss banking giant UBS AG (UBS) by one notch hours after the company announced another $19 billion in write-downs on illiquid real estate assets.
Credit analyst Michael Barnes said, "The negative outlook is in line with those on most other major banks with large investment-banking operations, and reflects the potential for a more precipitous decline in profitability from capital market activities during the next few quarters."

The fund will follow four key strategies: aggressive shorting of any company that has threatened or has sued the magazine, an aggressive activist strategy particularly targeting media holdings within the Murdoch empire, foreign exchange arbitrage targeting the US dollar vs the rest of the world and a hybrid private equity looking at opportunities in alcohol and weapons of mass destruction. hedgefundsreview.com!

George Soros warns 'superboom' is over
By Edmund Conway

The world economy is at the end of a "super-boom" in asset prices and debt which has lasted since the end of the Second World War, billionaire investor George Soros has warned.
Speaking in a BBC documentary, Mr Soros said that at the heart of the financial crisis was the culmination of a 60-year-old boom in leverage, the result of which will be a far deeper downturn than many expect.

JPY Crosses Are A Sell On Rallies - BarCap

April kicks off with risk reduction and commodities, EM currencies and the carry complex all coming under pressure, says Barclays Capital. Of these, the carry story is potentially the most important, with risks of substantial JPY strength after pretty much one-way traffic for the past nine years, says BarCap. Bank says NZD/JPY, AUD/JPY and BRL/JPY all closed out March below their respective 24-month averages, which suggests ongoing unwinds. Bank says although not yet at the panic selling stage, NZD/JPY below 76.70 will cause it to ratchet up the warnings of JPY strength. Until then, JPY crosses are a sell on rallies.

Signals suggest commodity bull run is fading
By Simon Denham, Head of Capital Spreads
Has the big run on commodities come to an end? Big falls in oil, silver and gold over the past few days come after all three failed to regain their highs after the initial sell off of a few weeks ago.For the first time in quite a while, the downside looks more probable than the up and the attraction of precious metal ‘protection’ at these prices does not now seem quite so secure
With the dollar having quickly reached quite extreme levels (rather than engaging in a long slow decline), the potential for further currency induced strength in the dollar denominated commodities has been somewhat reduced. For the Europeans or Japanese, the price of gold, for instance, equates to only around $730 ion local currency if you take into account the falls in the greenback.

0835 GMT [Dow Jones] The stabilization in the UK's manufacturing sector is unlikely to stop the Bank of England from cutting its key interest rate soon, since the central bank remains convinced the credit crunch will slow growth significantly this year. The manufacturing PMI was unchanged at 51.3, a stronger reading than the fall to 51.0 forecast by economists, but sill pointing to a sector that is expanding only modestly despite the positive impact a weaker pound is likely to have on exports.

Negative sentiment toward AUD and NZD is building, says Royal Bank of Scotland. Confidence indicators have softened and worries over the impact of tightening credit conditions and high interest rates on an indebted consumer have risen says the bank. AUD has the added negative of a more dovish-than-expected RBA statement. Bank says sell AUD and NZD against the USD. AUD/USD currently trades at 0.9087, NZD/USD at 0.7824.

If an unknown broker can lend $1b, how much more is out there?
Laurie Emini was barely known, even in the business world, outside a relatively small circle of contacts. That was until late last week.Now he is all over the front pages of every newspaper in the country and he's considered a flight risk, with his passport confiscated, as authorities investigate a potential shortfall estimated at $100 million in the accounts of the Melbourne stockbroker Opes.
That's not the half of it. The more pressing matter is the $1.15 billion in loans over shares - margin loans - taken out by 1200 investors who could find themselves tied up in the courts for years to come.
It borrowed the money from the ANZ Banking Group and Merrill Lynch and on-lent it to retail investors who, in general, were raising cash to buy more shares. In many cases, they were company directors raising cash to exercise options over shares.
So Opes's clients, unlike those taking margin loans directly from a major bank, have exposed themselves to an extra layer of risk.
Opes has been in trouble for weeks. Like Tricom, many of its clients could not stump up the cash to maintain the value of their collateral as the value of their share portfolios plummeted.
That put Opes under pressure. And once that happened, ANZ and Merrill Lynch seized control of the shares and began selling into the market.

Property investor Rubicon Japan Trust, owned by troubled investment firm Allco Finance Group, said that National Australia Bank had agreed to extend a $60 million loan facility
Last month, Rubicon Japan shares had tumbled after it said it might not be able to meet a separate margin call from NAB, though it did subsequently meet that call.
Rubicon Japan is one of three trusts managed by Rubicon Holdings, which is owned by embattled investment fund Allco.
Allco is one of several high-profile Australian victims of the global credit squeeze, and has been forced to sell off assets as it tries to repay debt. It has lost 95% of its value since last May and three of its executive directors have stepped down.Rubicon Japan said that the net proceeds from the asset sales would be used to reduce the outstanding loans due to NAB, with at least $10 million to be repaid by September 2008. It also said that if it fails to get an extension to repay two other loans totalling 5.6 billion yen ($US56.1 million) to creditors Credit Suisse and Japan's Shinsei Bank by May, it could default.Allco bought the 80% of Rubicon Holdings it did not already own last October for $276 million, a price UBS analysts described as lofty considering it was 29 times fiscal 2008 earnings.Rubicon Japan trust has stakes in 22 Japanese commercial properties with more than 300 tenants. Its holdings are valued at about 115 billion yen, according to its Web site.The two other Rubicon trusts, Rubicon Europe Trust Group and Rubicon America Trust, have won reprieves under margin calls due to Credit Suisse and have renegotiated debt repayments.

Charts won't particularly follow fundamentals I don't think & "they've" said with a fat cat wave of the cigar that EUR was "oversold" 400-500 pips ago, so that sort of BSblabla isn't useful either. What the mkt considers as oversold or undersold is what is important and even the mkt doesn't know what it wants to do.

One day for example CHF will be sold because of the writedowns @ UBS, then perhaps news about CS, next week EUR will be doused as different economic and investment nightmares unfold in EZ, municipalities' investments rot. Then there's the scam Lehman deal that will effect more suckers yet...so other cncy's will be pounded...Then where? XAU? Yen sees strength possibly a couple hundred pips south to spt line...

CHARTING ASIA DJ The euro fell sharply against the U.S. dollar Tuesday after Swiss banking giant UBS AG announced a huge quarterly loss. Charts indicate that the currency pair may drop further to $1.5582 in the near term.
UBS unveiled a first-quarter loss of CHF12 billion, which the bank said was prompted by about $19 billion in write-downs in illiquid real estate assets.
The news increased market fears of huge asset write-downs by other financial institutions affected by the U.S. sub-prime mortgage mess.
The euro extended its losses on the report, having already retreated sharply overnight from near the US$1.5905 record high hit March 17 on falling oil prices and players taking profits on long euro positions.
At 0558 GMT Tuesday, the euro was quoted at $1.5735.
The euro/dollar daily chart has a bearish tinge after a bearish shooting-star candlestick reversal pattern was completed overnight.
The daily Moving Average Convergence/Divergence, or MACD, indicator is also turning bearish. In addition, the daily stochastic measure has switched to bearish mode at the oversold level, which suggests that Monday's high of $1.5897 may be the euro's short-term top.
The immediate target for this near-term bearish euro/dollar view is at Wednesday's low of $1.5582.
A fall below $1.5582 would target the uptrend support line from the Feb. 20 low of $1.4613, coming in now at $1.5535.

BOTH debts and interest rates continue to rise, many small family businesses face ruin if they don't get early advice, said Hall Chadwick's Brent Kijurina.A partner in insolvency and business recovery at the Sydney accountancy firm, Mr Kijurina fears that many family businesses are borrowing beyond their means to keep their operations a going concern. As the housing market slumps, many people are losing equity in their homes,'' he said. "For a struggling business, this can mean turning 'off the tap' unless funds to prop up the business are sourced from other means.'' By struggling, they run the risk of falling deeper in debt and eventually losing their businesses. Instead, they should seek advice as soon as they sense there is a difficulty, he said.
"Often mum and dad directors are creditors,'' Mr Kijurina said.
"I have seen mum and dad directors being owed significant sums. "Traditionally such funds have come from equity in residential property.'' He predicted a significant rise in insolvencies this year because of the tightening of the property market and credit. "With small businesses owing $7 billion to the tax office, the situation looks set to get worse,'' he said. Credit insurer Atradius said the US subprime crisis was also going to adversely affect small businesses in Australia. "New home sales in the US had their biggest drop ever with the latest figures showing a 26 per cent drop in 2007,'' said Atradius managing director David Huey. "Now more than ever, we know what happens in the US affects our economy too."While this may not affect SMEs directly, it can impact on their customers' ability to pay and that can have a big impact on a business.'' Mr Kijurina said many small businesses were too proud to seek early advice, choosing to borrow instead with sometimes dire consequences.

"Sometimes when people come to us for advice it is too late and liquidation is the only option,'' he said. Herald

Notes fair value range remains 0.8500-0.9000 with any rise above range "expensive and non-sustainable" beyond one-to-two week timeframe. "This current move back down is a return to 'normal' levels as opposed to just seen optimistic ones."

Expects annual final demand to slow from 5.7% in December quarter to 3.25% through 2008, 2.5% through 2009. Says real GDP will ease from 3.9% in December quarter to around 2.5% through 2008, 2009.

Asian stocks are mixed, ranging from –0.71% to +1.67%. Shanghai is, again, the biggest loser, on fears that China will be hit hard by US recession.

Yesterday, the Sensex had tanked 727 points, but we think it is essentially ranged sideways between 14500-16500. Take a look at

COMMODITIES
Gold has once again retraced towards the seemingly strong Support near 915-10 on the trendline joining the lows of 828.30 (28-Dec), 904.70 (20-Mar), 906.20 (24-Mar). Gold bounced from 912.00 yesterday, however the trendline is still very close to being tested in the day. To know how long the trendline may hold… write to us at [email protected] and take a free trial of our Gold reports.

Crude has hit a low of 100.25 yesterday. It is an important level since crude still trades close to $101/barrel. We expect $99 to hold and it may produce a bounce from here.

CURRENCIES
The Euro rose to 1.5897, just shy of its earlier all-time high of 1.5907, but did not sustain the rise and has fallen back to 1.5773. We could now see some whipsawing between 1.5670 and 1.5907 through the rest of this week.

RBA leaves official cash rate target unchanged at 7.25% following board meeting earlier today, saying current rate settings appropriate. Decision consistent with RBA's recent comments that economy may be starting to slow and that substantial tightening of monetary conditions since mid-2007 is being given time to work. RBA likely still retains tightening bias with inflation well above its 2%-3% band, but it is happy for now to remain sidelined. It's likely awaiting more news on inflation front. dj

DJ Bearish USD Preventing Big NZD Fall - Westpac

Ongoing weakness in USD is only barrier to substantially lower NZD/USD, says Westpac Bank strategist Michael Gordon; positives like boost to farmer incomes from surge in demand and prices for dairy products, increased government spending, tight labor market supporting economy, but adds a lot of negatives converging at same time. "The New Zealand dollar is increasingly coming under fire as the economic outlook softens"; upcoming data, including house sales and more confidence reports, unlikely to improve market sentiment.
