    RBA Has Room to Cut Rates Further, ANZ Bank Says
    Reply   
    Jan. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Ivan Colhoun, head of Australian economics and property research at Australia & New Zealand Banking Group Ltd. and a former Reserve Bank of Australia official, talks about Australia inflation and central bank monetary policy. Australian consumer prices were unchanged last quarter as banana costs plunged, while a measure of core inflation that accelerated more than economists forecast sent the currency higher.

    Colhoun speaks with Susan Li on Bloomberg Television's "First Up."

    Time is running out for reaching an agreement with private investors on a Greek debt haircut, with negotiations stalled over interest rates. Meanwhile Germany continues to reject pressure to increase its contribution to the permanent bailout fund. German commentators are pessimistic.

    The MF Global Bankruptcy Filing: Did the Regulators Sell Out the Public for JP Morgan?
    Reply   
    What seems fairly obvious is that the law calls for MF Global to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy in which customers are given seniority to creditors, rather than a Chapter 11 non-broker bankruptcy in which the customer interests are not upheld. The rationale for Chapter 11 has always seems to be contrived to favor a particular creditor bank.
    Prior CFTC rulings and 'Rule 190' seems to have dealt with this in the past. Statements by various CFTC commissioners of late also seem to suggest that customers absolutely have a senior claim to any assets.

    Why then did the SEC, with Gary Gensler's purported assent, seem to ignore the precedent and their own rules and cut a deal in a secret meeting to favor the Banks, specifically JP Morgan?

    Apart from the obviously (typical) nervous presentation by Chairman Bernanke today which emoted all the confidence of 13 year old giving junior high book report presentation, his policy prescription (Full Monty) and unchanged QE did not come close to matching the state of the economy that the Fed sees to date and sees in the future.

    Zeus and Mahendra can post the whole day long and since 10 years that EURUSD is toast and USD is the only reserve currency - fact though is that all power and PMs are smoothly as butter moving from the west to the east (Asia).

    And that means that the western currencies are all going to be toast either this way or that way - and that just Gold and Silver and crude are left as the only true currencies.
    So in the end - and from the top - it doesn't matter whether today the Euro or USD is weaker. China and Asia will keep these paper things in balance over the years. For their very own interests.

    While the only true trend exists in hard assets.

    When Gold is 4500 and Silver 3 digits and Crude beyond 150 again - I don't care the slightest whether USD or Euro is the last standing man. Anything inbetween is plain and simply just shortterm noise.

    In other words: there are gamblers and guessers, possibly 99% or so - while the true investors are going to make a fortune with just a handful of trades. That is when they sell when hard assets are way too high (and far away from the 200 dma) and buy back around the 200 dma. Or the opposite.
    And there is not a single penny of a loss for these guys.

    If you don't believe me - just ask shanghai bc what he trades and how he trades these markets.

    The point is to follow the BIG trends - and to be on board on the majority of that trend. If you play it the right way - not a single penny of a loss. And a fortune.

    Right now and since over a decade there is exactly one such a trend. Everything else just chops around.
    And this trend (paper : hard assets and especially PMs) will continue at least another couple of years - until finally either there is a currency reset - or rates go into the double digits. With all the debt out there - and all the banks under water - there is no other way and no other outcome.

    The big money is in the big trends - and not in what the Euro or USD will do or not. Except when they are maybe violating the 4h or daily bollinger bands - and the big boyz change hands for a while and for a whipsaw.

    My money is where my mouth is - in coins.
    No losses.

    Everything else ... a casino: you win some, you loose some.
    Most though loose most of the time.
    Because they are impatient or feel the need to be like god.

    I have no clue what USD or EURO or stocks will do in coming years. So why should I trade that stuff?
    But i know exactly what Gold and Silver and Crude will do.
    It's that simple.

    One of the conditions for being or becoming a reserve currency is running an external deficit: it allows foreign countries to build reserves in your currency. The nuclear disaster may work along the same line: reinforcing JPY strength as the Japanese repatriate. JPY bearishness has been the default position from about 1998 and where are we now?

    There is plenty of room on both sides of the EUR/USD trade for decent profits. Long or short, the price transitions have been pretty well-defined and IMHO quite tradeable.

    I offer congratulations to Zeus, Dil and others who post their trades -- their profit is well-deserved, as it is for any trader.

    Although the fundamental conditions in Europe are still lousy, the fact of the matter is that EUR/USD buying has outpaced the selling as of late. This can be seen pretty clearly on the 4-hour chart -- the pair is sold at various price points, but not enough to make a significant drop in price. The pair is then bought up, driving the price to new highs.

    In order for this situation to change, we are going to need a pretty significant drop in price IMHO. I don't see it happening gradually either...the price drop needs to be pretty hard and fast I suspect. If and when this happens, we'll see extended selling again.

    As I mentioned in a previous message, be careful about shorting EUR/USD at this stage. We are pretty close to major resistance points and price could definitely drop, but at the same time price has been going up and up and up...

    In particular, the Committee decided today to keep the target range for the federal funds rate at 0 to 1/4 percent and currently anticipates that economic conditions--including low rates of resource utilization and a subdued outlook for inflation over the medium run--are likely to warrant exceptionally low levels for the federal funds rate at least through late 2014.


    By this time the Committee anticipates that all those retired and attempting to live on fixed income conservative investments will be broke and in all likelyhood homeless. At the camps their bodies will be groundup into dogfood. This will serve the dual purpose of eliminating the drain on the Treasury of Entitlement Progams and boost the protien intake of growing pet population.

    (Dow Jones via eFXnews) Jointly issued debt, or euro bonds, are an inevitable part of the solution to the euro zone's sovereign debt crisis, veteran financier George Soros said Wednesday, as the region cannot resolve its problems through structural reforms alone.

    At a lunch on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum, Soros told journalists that European authorities "had done everything wrong" in their response to the financial crisis that struck in 2007, with a confused policy response that betrayed widespread ignorance of how financial markets work.

    The euro tumbled about $0.01 in early trading today, sending the currency below the $1.30 handle it has been flirting with for the last few months.

    That comes as reports surface that the European Central Bank is maintaining its steadfast opposition to taking losses on its Greek bond holdings as part of a more potent debt restructuring than is currently being considered.

    International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde set off a flurry of speculation about the possibility of public sector involvement in the restructuring today when she told journalists in Paris, "If the level of Greek debt held by the private sector is not sufficiently renegotiated, then public sector holders of Greek debt should also participate in the efforts" (via Reuters).

Dealers did note that the statement could be vital for the USD's direction particularly in regards to inflation targeting. The scenario laid out by various dealers noted that no inflation targeting by the Fed would provide the greenback with momentum to test the low 1.28's. Conversely any inflation targeting could weaken the greenback towards 1.3250 area in the near future.

    Greek drama for european taxpayers
    Reply   
    Euro-zone: Citing Euro-zone officials, the FT writes that the IMF ‘has turned up pressure on European officials to take on more of the burden of filling a widening gap in Greece’s budget by pressing the ECB to take a hit on its EUR 40 Bn in Greek bond holdings’. The paper noted that although an IMF official denied that the fund was pushing any specific action on the ECB, Euro-zone officials involved in the discussions said the pressure to earmark potential gains to fill Greece’s financing hole was being fiercely resisted by the ECB.

    The ECB’s Peter Praet tells the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, “There are signs that the speed of the downturn is slowing and that a stabilisation is occurring”. When asked whether the ECB would accept losses on the Greek sovereign bonds, Praet said “The ECB abides by the agreements made with the governments. A haircut for the private sector is a one time event”. Praet added “We are not supporting the finances of (member) states, but naturally there are side-effects of our emergency measures. These should not be confused with the actual purpose (of thawing credit conditions for banks)”. He noted that a further recapitalisation of the ECB or Euro-zone national central banks was not on the agenda and rejected speculation that countries lacking a competitive economy would eventually have to leave the Euro-zone.

    Air France
    Reply   
    PARIS -- Air France-KLM's (AF.FR) financial situation is "extremely tight" and
    the company incurred a substantial operating loss in 2011 for the fourth
    consecutive year due, among other things, to rising fuel costs, the chief
    executive of Air France, one of the Franco-Dutch group's two airline divisions,
    said Wednesday.

    Alexandre de Juniac told a French parliamentary commission that Air
    France-KLM's red ink from operations last year will reach "several hundred
    million euros," but declined to be more explicit as the company's accounts are
    still being audited.

    He also noted Air France-KLM's deepening indebtedness. "We have been incapable
    of financing our investments for the past three years, as we don't generate
    enough cash flow," he told the lawmakers. Air France-KLM's net debt widened by
    EUR2 billion to EUR6.5 billion last year, he said.

    MF Global clients unite
    Reply   
    CLIENTS of MF Global have formed a new group to represent their interests to administrators of the failed broker's Australian arm.In an email to other MF Global clients, futures trader Brent Penfold, who has been active in agitating for a better deal for clients, said he hoped to hand over his role to the MF Global Australia Client Support Group.Mr Penfold said the group would be led by accountant and former liquidator Ross Anderson. Share trader and former Deloitte partner John Hancock would also be involved in the group.Deloitte partner Chris Campbell was appointed administrator of MF Global's Australian arm, which held a $319 million trading book on behalf of about 13,000 clients, on November 1 after the broker's New York-based parent collapsed.

    Suspicious SEC Handling of MF Global Documents Before Bond Offering Questioned
    Reply   
    Critical documents related to MF Global’s financial condition appear to have been delayed for release by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) at an important time just before a MF Global floated a bond offering to professional investors. While possibly a coincidence, approximately the same time the documents in question were finally made public, MF Global professional account holders were beginning to flee the company, leading to an eventual liquidity crisis and the firm’s bankruptcy.

    The Aussie dollar goes for gold
    Reply   
    The hedge fund game to borrow euros and push up the Australian dollar has suddenly captured the attention of small and large traders in the US (Facing off against a jobs raid, January 24; Carried away in an Aussie dollar dance, January 23).

    The Australian dollar eased last night but the popular cables, including DailyFX in the US, are claiming our currency as a better alternative to investing in gold and silver. When traders invest in commodities they don’t receive interest. DailyFX points out that the Australian and Canadian dollars in some ways are therefore better than gold or silver.


    So, if you will allow me to oversimplify, we have most of our trading partners scrambling to lower their currencies – including the US, China and particularly Europe – because they are desperate to employ their people. But the brave Australians have moved to the gold standard in the sure knowledge that our unemployment will rise to 6 per cent and probably go much higher (Why unemployment is heading to 6%, January 20).

    The response from our readers to some of the solutions I put forward yesterday was fascinating. It’s clear that many of our readers understand that part of our problem is that we have leaders in Canberra who simply do not understand the ramifications of what is taking place. For example, our moves to make our labour less flexible via the industrial relations legislation will make the impact of the higher dollar worse. And in the middle of our currency becoming a gold standard, and at a time when power costs are skyrocketing, we slap a carbon tax on our manufacturers and large employers.

    Australia has a second problem because our banks are being forced to pay higher and higher interest rates on their overseas borrowing. I suggested that the government do the borrowing for the banks and that as a result interest rates should come down.

    My readers did not like that idea. Many readers equated this plan with printing money. They believe dwelling prices must come down – or certainly not rise – and some believe that lower interest rates mean that retirees are supporting the rest of the community.

    I proposed the idea as a question and was told the answer. But I will be raising it again.

    The Swiss currency was an effective gold standard for decades until they found that their unemployment was just too hard to bear and so they have had to clamp their currency. It became impossible to perform any task in Switzerland for export.

    If our dollar is to be equated with gold, and we pay higher interest rates than falling currencies, then our dollar could rise to enormous levels. We are going to have to start thinking laterally.

    Maybe our readers are right and we have to first cleanse our bad practices and waste, and use the higher dollar to do this. It will be very painful.

    But in the end we have to be smart enough to create a society that takes advantage of this situation. We have get to find a way to employ the people who live in our capital and regional cities because if we don’t, Australia will be a very unpleasant place to live. I will return to this subject.
