Sooner or later someone has to pay the bill... with interest,
with interest which compounds as a big snowball as deficits keeps growing..

"Sooner or later the world is going to run a credit check on Uncle Sam and say, "Sorry, you don't qualify."
Something like that just happened in Europe, where a sale of 10-year bonds failed, leaving the state bank stuck with a big chunk of the offering. It wasn't in deeply troubled Greece, or eternally problematic Italy. It was in Germany, the heartland of the European economy.
For now, it's incredibly convenient for people in Washington to believe that unbridled spending is good for the economy. It's certainly good for politicians.
But taking the position that the prior administration got everything wrong, and the new one will get everything right is deeply problematic, especially when the "solution" being offered is exactly the same.

CHF/JPY : A projected resistant range has been established at 86.04 - 86.46. If the downward trending momentum is strong enough to penetrate through 79.95, the market has good potential to head for the lower range at 77.86 - 78.58.

GBP/JPY : The market is basically vibrating around 139.48 with an expected magnitude of 137.51 - 141.46. The magnitude will be expanded further into 135.54 - 143.43. I am bias on the downside. As shown in the monthly cycle charts the market has a tendency to trade beteen 123.02 - 144.34 (i.e. between two levels marked with yellow colour).

GBD spike

YV. You are the second person on this forum to ask that question. This should answer your question as it suggest market was short. Other explanations:

- GBP has been in demand all week
- 50bp was fully discounted and at the low end of expectations (some expected as much as 100bp)
- Lack of selling after the rate cut sent a signal to buy gbp/usd and sell eur/gbp for stop hunters

Hope that helps

Today is a market to apply technical analsis skills. After closing my 2nd short GBP position at 1.5042 this Asian morning, now only hold long EUR/CHF from 1.5148.
Technically speaking, Cable is a sell at 1.5250, stop 1.5310. But this wild animal can spike higher to take our stops.
Another pair closely monitored is long USD/JPY near 9200. 50 pips stop.

Leonberg,here is the small print in large.i have no claim to perfection.i regularly make will find scores of trades where i took a good beating within this thread.

in addition for the same small print,i at times mention no stops in trades or stops at a later time.this mostly means i am closley monitioring the trade and wil either close ou t or post an update to the mentioned trade.

i personally and most strongly advise not to follow the "later stop" if you take up any trade idea but always put a stop which is of a resonable size according to your personal risk tolerance.

600,000 Workers Leave S China Industry Heartland -Govt
BEIJING (AFP)--About 600,000 migrant workers left south China's industrial heartland last year as the economic crisis caused exports to shrink and forced factories to close, a senior official said Thursday. The number of migrants departing Guangdong province, one of the world's top makers of toys and electronic appliances, accelerated in 2008 as the global situation worsened, said provincial deputy governor Huang Longyun. "This year the situation is more serious than at any other time since the start of the decade, indeed since the Asian financial crisis," he said at a briefing in Beijing.
By the middle of last year, when the economic crisis was still in its embryonic stage, only 143,100 workers had left Guangdong - but the number reached half a million at the end of October and has now hit 600,000, he said. The official jitters were expressed in unusually candid terms this week in the weekly magazine Outlook, published by the state-run Xinhua news agency. The magazine warned of the rising risk of social disturbances, or "mass incidents", pointing out that nationwide 10 million out of 120 million migrant workers had lost their jobs. The magazine quoted Huang Huo, a senior Xinhua reporter, as saying that one of the most sensitive periods of 2009 would be after the Lunar New Year period in late January and early February. Once the holiday is over, millions of migrant workers will return from their rural homes to the big cities along the coast, and many may end up frustrated in their search for work. "There's absolutely no doubt that we've entered into a period of rising mass incidents, and in 2009 China could face more conflict," Huang told the magazine. China's export-dependent economy as a whole could grow by just 7.5% this year, the World Bank said recently, which would be the lowest level in 19 years.

AUD Rally Drawing To An End - Westpac
AUD rally is "drawing to an end" despite some improvement in commodities prices, Westpac senior currency strategist Jonathan Cavenagh says. Recommends selling AUD/USD at current levels. Notes further strength in AUD will be harder to come by and "there is risk of a correction over coming weeks." Says going short AUD/USD at current levels "represents good risk/reward". Looks to add to short positions on rallies back toward 0.7200 with stops above recent 0.7270 high. Also "ample scope" for AUD to correct vs EUR, JPY and GBP. AUD/USD now 0.7060

DJ MARKET TALK: Aussie Building Data Point To Large RBA Cut - TD
Sharp drop in Australian November building approvals underlines "fundamental weakness in Australian economy," says TD Securities' Josh Williamson; will likely swing market expectations toward "relatively large" RBA rate cut in February; "We're looking for a 75bps cut, but I don't think you could discount a larger cut based on the data that's come out today." Data well below expectations, suggests monetary stimulus in 3 months' to November has had "no impact whatsoever" in arresting decline in housing approvals; "Clearly, financial conditions in November remained tight. Even given the pent up demographic demand that exists in new dwellings, the result certainly suggests that housing construction is going to be a significant drag on GDP growth at least for the first six months of 2009," Williamson says.

"Horrific" Aussie Data Hints At A Trough - ICAP

"Absolutely horrific" Aussie buildings approvals data and worsening trade surplus may just hint the bottom is in sight, says ICAP economist Adam Carr. Says the lifeboat in the guise of rapid RBA rate cuts should soon be on the scene, as November's numbers were still too early to benefit from looser policy. "I would imagine we are pretty close to the trough realistically." Also notes worst of damage being done in resource states. "I suspect on any reasonable estimate of underlying demand, (residential) approvals should be picking up in the non too distant futures, rate cuts will make it more attractive for both buyers and builders." Expects a pick up in December.

DJ Aussie Econ Shows More Signs Of Pain
Australian economy shows more signs of pain with exports missing market forecasts and residential building tanking; slump in trade surplus in November to A$1.45 billion (market expected A$2.45 billion) illustrates the hurt from the slowing of China's rapacious commodities appetite, with further slowing surely on horizon. Residential approvals meanwhile fell 12.8% in November on-month, after a 3.1% fall in October, adding to picture of pretty grim outlook for construction sector

EUR/USD down as Singapore, other Asian names unwinding long positions ahead of first speech of new year by ECB president Trichet, says senior FX dealer at major Japan bank. Consensus was for no ECB rate cut next week, but market now looking for 50 bps; if Trichet's comments suggest possibility of more than 50 bps, "this could lead to euro selling that would push the pair down to around 1.3310," near its new year low.

EU reaches deal to monitor gas flow through Ukraine - IHT

"... After phone conversations with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin of Russia and his Ukrainian counterpart, Yulia Tymoshenko, on Wednesday, the European Commission president, José Manuel Barroso, said both leaders had agreed in principle to allow international monitors to verify gas movements. But he also warned both countries - particularly Ukraine - that failure to help restore supplies could have consequences for their relationships with the EU.

"We have received assurances both from Prime Minister Putin and Prime Minister Tymoshenko that they both accept international monitors," Barroso said. "

Good thing ... that phone technology. Poof, problem gone.
