Eurasia Group Warns Of Global Tension In 'Era Of G-Zero'
Reply   
The world is entering an era in which no country or bloc of countries dominates, and that will have negative implications for the global economy and politics, a high-profile political think tank said Tuesday.

Eurasia Group President Ian Bremmer and head of research David Gordon dubbed this as the "era of G-Zero," a reference to international groupings such as the Group of 20 and the Group of Eight. In this era, no country or bloc of countries has the political and economic leverage to drive an international agenda, they said.

DJ End Of 'Black Swan' Position Nigh - Analyst
Reply   
The combination of strong US data and a cautiously optimistic Fed means that "Black Swan" positions -- trades that effectively prepared for financial doomsday and a sharply weaker dollar -- may be unwinding, according to David Gilmore, a partner at Foreign Exchange Analytics. The sharp move below $1400/oz in gold Tuesday may be signalling that investors are more comfortable holding dollars, and that fears of hyperinflation/devaluation are less acute than they once were

November interest rate hike 'prompted fall in house prices'
A decrease in property prices could have been down to the interest rate hike in November.

A decrease in property prices could have been down to the interest rate hike in November.

House prices declined after the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) opted to up the interest rate in November, it has been revealed.

According to Weekend Australia, the cost of properties decreased by 0.2 per cent in the same month the organisation decided to hike the official cash level from 4.5 per cent to 4.75 per cent.

And shortly after the RBA's move, the Commonwealth Bank chose to increase the rates on its home loan and savings accounts. What's more, recent figures have revealed property lending to owner-occupiers has dropped to 7.3 per cent, the lowest level in 20 years.

But there could be some relief for those with a mortgage at the beginning of this year, as UBS interest rate strategist Matthew Johnson predicted last month that the RBA will leave another cash level increase - the first of 2011 - until the third quarter, Sun Herald

Will The Default Of A Vietnamese State-Owned Company Be The Black Swan Of 2011?
Vinashin, Vietnam's national shipping company, just missed a debt payment, according to The Guardian.
This may not seem like a big deal at first. Vinashin is owned by the state, so it's unlikely to have a direct impact on a lot of investor's portfolios.
But if it was to need a bailout, the cost would be big. Vinashin has $4.4 billion in debt, which is equivalent to 5% of Vietnam's GDP in 2009, according to The Guardian.
Sounds like another emerging markets crisis that struck fear in the world about a year ago.

Yesterday, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard mentioned a banking rescue in Vietnam as being the source of the 2011-2012 hard landing for the region. Could this be the trigger he had in mind?

Inflation Adds to Flood Damage for the Aussie
Reply   
The floods damaging Queensland are an obvious problem for the Australian dollar. But, inflation could prove the real killer for the currency this year.
Indications are that Asian central banks, which might have been delaying interest rate hikes while the U.S. dollar was weak, are more willing to tighten monetary policy now that the prospects for the U.S. economy and the dollar are improving. For the Australian dollar this can only be more bad news as Asian growth, including that of China, slows and the demand for Australian exports declines. The Aussie may well have ended 2010 on quite a high–reaching a 28-year peak of $1.0258 against its U.S. counterpart as commodity prices continued their year-long rally and speculation over another early rise in Australian interest rates became rife.

DJ Dollar Higher Ahead Of Fed Minutes Release
The dollar is holding onto its gains against the euro and yen Tuesday afternoon just before the Federal Reserve releases minutes from its December meeting. The notes could reveal if Fed officials' views of the economy match the improvement seen recently in economic data. Signs that the economy is strengthening could push Treasury yields higher making the dollar a more attractive investment.

CAD Favored, AUD Not In 2011 - BNPP
Rising inflation is a major concern for Asian policy makers, says BNP Paribas, which expects policy tightening along with other measures designed to control hot-money inflows in 2011. The bank says such action will likely see risk appetite challenged, with the quasi-China trades most at risk. AUD may initially garner support from any CNY appreciation but BNP says it's at risk from a significant correction due to its overvaluation. On the other hand, CAD is not associated with the quasi-China trade and will likely be supported by a U.S. recovery. Therefore BNP favors selling AUD/CAD at 1.03 to target 0.88 with a stop at 1.06, and shorting EUR/CAD, for the same reasons, at 1.34 with a target of 1.25 and a stop at 1.36. EUR/CAD trades at 1.3340; AUD/CAD at 1.0026

Some Fed Officials Had High Threshold to Alter QE2

Federal Reserve policy makers said that improvements in the economy didn’t meet the threshold for scaling back their plans to purchase $600 billion in bonds.

“While the economic outlook was seen as improving, members generally felt that the change in the outlook was not sufficient to warrant any adjustments to the asset-purchase program, and some noted that more time was needed to accumulate information on the economy before considering any adjustment,” the Fed said in minutes of its Dec. 14 policy meeting, released today in Washington.

If you look at it that way the trend is down for one and up for the other against other currencies on which side it may be the base or quote so it depends... So the better way to say it is that USD/CHF trend is down which means you can short it, when we refer to trends here we refer to 1 base and quote as a pair and collectively as 1 instrument because that is what it is but to another it may be ek Jodi (Hindi for 1 Pair).

the same way the US does nothing about it.

However the truth is that greece is bankrupt yet Greeks are not.
They do not owe the banks mortgages as many have bought on cash with less than 30% loans. not because it was cheap but because banks did not lend any more than that till after 2005.
I could write a whole page on the mismatches with other economies and the peculiarities of teh greek economy and why Greece will pull out of the Euro but this is not the page to do it.

12:30 GMT (Global-View.com) January 4 – I noted yesterday that the start of the year market is often littered with landmines and that has been the case today. This has seen currencies such as the aud, jpy and chf sell off while offsets boosted the eur/usd and gbp/usd, leaving the dollar caught in the middle as positions taken into the close of the year unwound. This has seen some significant moves but damage has not been fatal (note 20 day mvas on our FX Chart Points ). As for the eur/usd, it came close but did not test last week’s high at 1.3424 (high 1.3416). To maintain a bid, it would need to hold above 1.3375 = 100 day mva, which acted as resistance until the early European session move above it. Only above 1.35 though would alter a view that this is the top of the current range. With that said, I don’t usually place too much significance to start of the year moves but they cannot be ignored as they can force a technical response.

See below for key cross levels:

eur/jpy:
110 sets the bias
109.86 = 20 day mva
111.94 and 112.22 are key resistance

eur/chf:
1.2698 = Dec 27 high
1.2709 = 20 day mva

Hi Joe, FM, Jay, John, Syd, Frank et al. And a jolly 2011 to you all.
This week's opening play seem to me typical for the first two weeks of a new year namely range playng with a bias against the trends. For my part I've only a small long DlrCHF posi @ 0.9400. I cut my small short SnP but will enter again once it looks toppish. I'm pretty confident DlrChf will test 0.96 and UBS is still apparently calling parity by the month's end.

My first big play is likely to be on cable. A lot of resluts coming out over the coming days on retail sales and I think they'll be abominable. 10 days before xmas I went to Europes largest indoor shopping centre with all the major retailers from the downmarket HMV to Cartier and nearly everyone of them had sales discounts - some upto 80%! And this 10 days before xmas??

Does anyone happen to know when the first results (and from whom) are due out?

Moody's: Adopting Wait And See Approach To Australia's Queensland Flood Impact
Reply   
Marina Ip, a Moody's assistant vice president and analyst, said the obligation to pay for all the damage won't fall on the state alone, with the federal government also helping. As such, Moody's wouldn't be making any changes before the delayed release of the state's budget.

"Because the weather and the climate situation is ongoing, it's hard to quantify how big an impact this will have on the finances. At the moment, we'd like to take a step back and just watch as the situation unfolds," said Ip.

Representatives for Fitch Ratings and Standard & Poor's declined to comment.

Australia's Queensland Floods Could Impact Budget, Bond Issuance
Reply   
The cost of devastating floods now rampaging through Queensland have forced the Australian state to postpone its planned mid-year budget outlook and could change the state's bond issuance plans for this fiscal year.
The timing of Queensland's forecasted return to an AAA debt rating is also potentially in jeopardy, say analysts, with ratings agency Moody's Investors Service for now only acknowledging the floods could impact the state's budget but adding no ratings change was imminent. "The cost to the state will be huge--both in direct costs such as rebuilding roads and other damaged infrastructure and providing relief payments to families--but also in lost income, while the mining, agriculture and tourism sectors recover," said Queensland Treasurer Andrew Fraser on Tuesday.
Fraser estimates the state's gross state product for the year ending June 30, 2011 will be revised down to below 3% from an estimate of around 3.5% just six months ago, with the state already factoring in A$680 million for natural disaster expenditures.
"These floods are going to hit the bottom line hard," said Fraser. AgForce, a Queensland-based agricultural body, estimates A$1 billion in agricultural flood costs with the Resources Council of Queensland estimating A$1 billion in delayed coal exports from the flood.

Australian Speculative Long Positions Nearing Extreme
Reply   
The Australian dollar was weaker late Tuesday as huge flooding in the resources-rich state of Queensland prompted expectations of a big hit to the country's economic output, given the disruption to coal exports and crop production.
While the full scale of the damage is not yet clear, analysts believe the flood damage will toss out the need for any near-term rate hike by the Reserve Bank of Australia, which in turn should pressure the Australian dollar. Credit Agricole strategists said the high level of speculative positioning in the Aussie dollar poses a risk of position squaring or profit taking but support should kick in around US$1.0090. Also hurting sentiment towards the Aussie was the Australian Industry Group-PricewaterhouseCoopers Performance of Manufacturing Index, which fell 1.3 points in December from November to 46.3.
In their outlook for the year, Commonwealth Bank of Australia strategists forecast the local unit to trade US$1.02 in March and US$0.9900 by June, ending the year at US$0.9200.

"The assumption is that the U.S. economy will continue to recover and sooner or later the thinking will start to shift to 'normalising' (U.S.) interest rates--lifting rates back to more 'normal' levels," CBA Economist Craig James wrote. "Once the view starts to shift to U.S. rate hikes, the U.S. dollar should gain support and lift against currencies across the globe," he said, adding strong domestic data will continue to support the local unit.

China Likely Facing Higher Inflation, Slower Growth: Legislator - Report
Reply   
China's economy will likely face higher inflation and a tough job market as economic growth slows this year, the 21st Century Business Herald reported Tuesday, citing a Chinese legislator. He Keng, deputy director of the financial and economic affairs committee of the National People's Congress, said in an interview with the newspaper that China's economic growth likely exceeded 10% last year.
He didn't offer a forecast for this year's growth rate.
The country's monetary policy this year should focus on stabilizing the exchange rate and liberalizing interest rates, rather than controlling bank lending, He said. He added the government should launch a real-estate tax as soon as possible to combat property speculation. China introduced various tightening measures last year to curb demand for residential properties to prevent overly high price rises. However, Premier Wen Jiabao said late last month the measures haven't been implemented well enough, and property price movements have yet to meet his expectations. http://en.21cbh.com/

"Investors are advised not to undertake any more long-term gold investments, but to be prepared to wind up their gold positions when real yields start to climb noticeably over a long period of time," it says. However, for this year it says the outlook remains bullish with central bank policies inflaming inflation expectations among some investors.

RETAILERS calling for the Government to scrap the GST threshold on internet shopping have found a surprise ally in Greens leader Bob Brown.
A group of Australian retailers launched an advertising campaign today urging the Government to lower the GST threshold on internet shopping.

Currently, no GST is imposed on goods that are bought from international websites for less than $1000.

Acting Attorney-General Brendan O'Connor indicated today the Government would not change the laws, but Senator Brown said it should reconsider.

"GST on imported goods is a reasonable thing," he said in Hobart today.

"Why should the shop up the street have to charge GST for its customers but the shop selling goods out of Tokyo or California not have to charge GST?"

JP//The old model of economic development relying on export and government spending has finally created inflation of a rather uncomfortable rate. It inflation were merely in gold or whatever precious metals, it would have been easily handled. But when inflation gets into life essentials such as food, housing, tranportation and clothings, there is hardly any ground for rejoicing. The government is subsidizing transportation, clothing is not a problem, government housing in China is inadequate, and food is where it really hurts...

Reply   
. As with China, some of the price increases (particularly for food) have been caused by temporary shortages due to poor harvests. Some of it could also be attributed to productivity increases and a secular rise in household purchasing power, typical in a growing economy. But headline inflation wouldn't be increasing at the rate it is without loose monetary policy. Nor would households be saving and transacting in gold and U.S. dollars if they weren't afraid of an increasingly debased dong. Vietnam is again becoming a land of three currencies, as it was in the 1980s when inflation at one point hit nearly 500%.LINK

Some high profile businesses in the construction sector went out of business last year, including Pierse Group and related companies and well-known builders Michael McNamara & Co., the survey added. Irish unemployment hovers around 13.2%, up from around 4.4% during the Celtic Tiger economic boom of the 1990s, and economists see unemployment rising further in 2011 despite tough austerity measures.

The coalition of retailers is spending about $200,000 on print advertising over the next two weeks, The Australian reports, but is considering a television campaign that would push the budget into the millions.

The greenback rises versus yen due to robust US economic data and strength in stocks

The greenback initially extended last week's selloff to 80.93 against the Japanese yen in Asian morning before recovery in part due to the renewed geopolitical tensions between S. Korea and N. Korea, however, the pair rebounded and ratcheted higher in Europe and NY sessions on cross unwinding in yen together with intra-day rise in U.S. Treasury yields ( benchmark 10-year yield climbed back above 3.40%). Strength in global stocks also boosted risk appetite and the pair eventually rose to 81.75 in late NY trade. DJI rose by 0.81% and ended up at 11670.75. CAC 40 rose by 2.53% while DAX closed up by 1.09%.

The dollar was also supported as US construction spending in November came in at 0.4%, stronger than the forecast of 0.2% while ISM manufacturing index rose to 57.0 in December from 56.6 in November.

The single currency edged lower in Asia in part due to the soft official Chinese PMI (53.9 in December versus 55.2 in November) released over the weekend together with worries that European credit markets could be hit by a second credit crisis within months as suggested by a report in the Telegraph newspaper on Sunday. Euro fell to as low as 1.3250 in European morning, however, price recovered after the release of robust German and EU economic data and euro later rose to 1.3396 in NY session before easing.

On economic front, German PMI for manufacturing in December actual came in at 60.7, which was the fastest rate in over 14 years. EU Manufacturing PMI came in at 57.1, stronger than the forecast of 56.8.

Euro was supported as a Bloomberg news report quoted that Chinese Vice Premier Li Keqiang said China would continue buying Spanish debts even amid a surge in the European nation's borrowing costs.

Despite last Friday's rally from 1.5425 to 1.5680 in thin market conditions on the last trading day of 2010, the British pound remained under pressure throughout Monday. Cable edged lower from 1.5610 and eventually fell to as low as 1.5434 before staging a minor recovery in NY afternoon.

The market would pay attention to the release of US nonfarm payroll and unemployment data on Friday. Economists predicted a gain of 140,000 jobs from a rise of 39,000 at the previous reading.

Economic indicators to be released on Tuesday include:

Germany unemployment rate, U.K. Manufacturing PMI, Mortgage Approval, EU CPI estimate, US Factory order and FOMC meeting minutes (Market holiday in New Zealand ).

Industry Sources Expect China Yuan To Appreciate Around 5% In 2011 - Report
Reply   
China's yuan is expected to appreciate around 5% against the U.S. dollar this year, the state-run China Securities Journal reported Tuesday, citing unnamed industry sources.
The forecast came after the yuan rose to a fresh high against the dollar in the last trading day of 2010. As of late Friday, the yuan has appreciated 3.6% since June 19, when China pledged to increase the yuan's trading flexibility and effectively ended a two-year-long peg to the dollar. For full year 2010, the yuan was 3.5% higher against the dollar.

Australian manufacturing contracted in December for a fourth month as higher borrowing costs curbed consumer spending and the nation’s currency surged to a record, eroding export earnings. The performance of manufacturing index fell to 46.3 from 47.6 in November, the Australian Industry Group and PricewaterhouseCoopers said in a survey released in Canberra today. A number below 50 indicates contraction.
