Fear of a Jolt in Thin August Markets
Typically, the stock market does just fine in August, but every now and then, the month's evil twin shows up. Given how nervous investors have become about the risk of deflation or renewed recession, they are beginning to worry about which version of August they will get this year.
"You think, 'Europe is on vacation, Congress is out of session, what can happen?' I guess history tells you that's when there is a little more bandwidth for other things to take place," says Jeffrey Kleintop, chief market strategist at LPL Financial in Boston.August is unusual. The Dow actually has risen in 12 of the past 20 Augusts, including each of the past four years—even the disastrous 2008. It shows an average decline for the month because, in the years when it has fallen, the declines have been big enough to outweigh the smaller gains of the up years. It is the size of the declines that make some investors uneasy.

Some See the Hand of China in Recent Yen, Euro Rallies - wsj

After a big surge through the first five months of the year, the dollar has slumped against the euro and yen, with many traders pointing to softer U.S. economic growth and stabilization in Europe as the catalyst.

In currency markets, the buzz among traders is that there is another factor at work, too: China.

In recent months, traders believe, China has stepped up its buying of yen- and euro-based investments. This is likely because it is trying to diversify its $2.5 trillion of currency reserves away from holdings of U.S. Treasurys, some analysts say. .../..

RBA's changed interest
Financial markets have been displaying broadly the same symptoms of ''risk aversion'' that they did during the financial crisis of 2007-09, although with nothing like the intensity as during that period. Once again, the issue prompting the heightened sense of ''risk aversion'' is debt - except this time the focus is government, rather than private debt.

Ok folks. Following is our trading plan for Monday for GBP/usd.

Sell at first attempt at R1 1.6025/30, stop @ 1.6050. Condition: Price does not touch first the CP @1.5935 before it goes to 1.6025. It should reach R1 first, thereby breaking the high to necessitate a SELL before falling.

Alternative trade: Buy at CP @1.5935 stop at 1.5912.

Will reveal trades for USD/CAD and aussie tomorrow.

Useless politicians

So what is a fair wage?...Check this out

This Based on the Poisson distribution (the universe of numbers).
It is mathematically proven more then 200 years ago.

(Income in natural way, not politicians)

No one can be 12 times as strong as the weakest.
No one can be 12 times as smart as the dumbest.
No one should make 12 times as the poorest.

This will make the wage reforms a thing of yesterday.
(Just Excel sheet and well thought of method)

HIGH-PROFILE miner Andrew Forrest

The Fortescue Metals Group chief accused Prime Minister Julia Gillard, her predecessor Kevin Rudd and Federal Treasurer Wayne Swan of telling lies to Australian voters under the "badge of the Commonwealth."

His salvo, delivered during a brief visit to Melbourne, was clearly aimed at undermining the Government's latest move in resurrecting Mr Rudd's political credentials and handing him a frontline role in the past two weeks of campaigning before polling day.

Mr Forrest said the tax was introduced by Mr Rudd and supported by a "cheer squad of Julia Gillard and Wayne Swan".

"The fact that they are bringing the old team back which was responsible for the worst economic policy that Australia has seen in its entire history does concern me," Mr Forrest told BusinessDaily.

"When I heard the Treasury secretary say that you could increase this tax from 40 per cent to 90 per cent without affecting mining investment, I knew that I was dealing with la-la land," Mr Forrest said.

He argued that then prime minister Rudd and Treasurer Wayne Swan had planned to nationalise the mines by stealth, "dressing up the plan in a huge big mining tax which was predicated on all of Australia's mining industries being greedy multinationals that don't tell the truth and don't pay much tax.

Asked what the resource rent liabilities would be for his company, Mr Forrest said that because the new tax proposal was agreed to in secret it was hard to model.

However, it was now believed that once all charges are levied, the tax could come in at 50 per cent.

"It means I can't excel at what I am doing and Fortescue will get clobbered by a discriminatory unfair tax."

tokyo rana 17:08 ... Rana be careful with betting on much more dollar decline here! I'm definitely not in that boat; Indices and Eurusd are topping out right now or very soon - and latest into 3rd week of August - to go down into early December - and to reverse again into April 2011.

USD/JPY : Critical Point 84.04

Entry: Target: Stop:

USD/JPY : Basically the market is working on the supporting ranges at 82.21 - 85.04 - 86.47. Sell on rallies is still the preferred trading strategy.

EUR/USD : Critical Resistance 1.3548
Entry: Target: Stop:

EUR/USD : Critical Resistance 1.3548

As shown in the front page of my website, the normal range for this week is 1.3205 - 1.3543. A supporting barrier is expected at 1.3205 // 1.3222 and a resistant barrier is located at 1.3374 // 1.3392. Basically once the market can anchor itself within the supporting range of 1.3132 - 1.3324, it can move ahead towards the resistant range at 1.3500 // 1.3548.
