“SNB unwillingness to hike rates and ECB unwillingness to cut rates is also supporting EURCHF. Only later in February when investors worry about the next US fiscal cliff is the cross likely to be capped again”, suggested M.Mohi-uddin, Director of FX Strategies at the Swiss bank UBS.

The back-and-forth between China, Japan, and the U.S. over disputed islands in the East China Sea this week continued ratcheting up, exposing policies that could prevent any diplomatic solution

Commitment of Traders Report

I like both COT charts. the light blue ones show the NET long currency positions vs. the USD and spot rates are in reverse order (When needed) to match the positions.

Initial standouts are 1) EUR positions have moved from short to square. 2) JPY shorts have steadily been winding down. 3) Crude longs are building as the price works higher. 4) Gold positions (long) and spots have been holding steady.

Fed official alleges Geithner may have alerted banks to rate cut

What happened on Ayg 17, 2007 and why should anyone get worked up over the "Geithner Leak".

Friday Aug 17 was OpEx and the S&P Call/Puts Settled on the Open of the Cash Market. The Last Day to Trade was Aug 16.

Revisit the feeling of being really really screwed.

One trader's POV on what happened last Friday morning. (You recall, SnP options last trade is Thurday, the settlement for cash is on the Open Price set Friday)


So the bears went for the knockout blow and loaded up on the short side for August expiration. In the S&P 500, the open interest in puts was 4 times larger than in calls, a very clear indication that the bears were playing for a quick, lethal shot that would push the market beyond a correction and into a bear market.

That’s why I contend Ben Bernanke earned his Street credibility on expiration Friday in August 2007. The Fed chairman showed he knows how markets work and how psychology moves markets. Had the bears won the day after the bulls made their stand, the mood would have continued to be very negative and the bears retained their dominance. But lowering the discount rate signaled the Fed’s active interest while leaving room for further action, a deft way to swing sentiment to neutral.

That move by Bernanke and a unanimous FOMC just over an hour before the opening meant there would be no saving the bears. As I told Sue Herrara that Friday on CNBC’s Power Lunch, “The Fed hit the bears with a body blow in the solar plexus, or perhaps even a little lower!”

The result was unanswerable, because those short positions in August S&P options priced on the first print of Google, Microsoft, IBM, eBay, and every other one of the stocks in the S&P 500. The settlement price was nearly 39 points above the previous close of the SPX.

The bears had been feasting on a 5.4 percent sell-off of Japan’s Nikkei 225, and the S&P futures were down over 20 points prior to Bernanke’s haymaker. But add that 20-point pre-market sell -off to the 39-point settlement and you get the idea of how powerful the punch was. The 60-point turnaround, from a potential windfall profit to a staggering loss, was one of the most telling blows ever delivered by the Fed.

Let’s look at the SPX’s August 1450 puts as one example. The puts closed the previous session (Thursday) at $33 per contract. (The SPX cash closed Thursday at roughly 1411, and normally the intrinsic value should have been closer to $39, but someone sold a large number just prior to the close, and by result these puts closed nearly $6 under parity. SPX options are European-style, and have to be exercised for their cash value on expiration.)

With the futures trading down 20 points 1 ½ hours prior to last Friday’s open, the owners of these puts were looking for the SPX to settle at roughly 1391 (1411 – 20 = 1391). At that settlement those puts would have been worth $59 (1450 puts granting the right to sell at 1450 – SPX settlement of 1391 = $59). Instead these puts priced out at ZERO, as the right to sell at 1450 was worthless given the 1450.11 settlement.

When you multiply the open interest of 110,000 contracts by 100 (each SPX option carries that 100 multiple) by $59, you see a swing over $649,000,000! So every put registered losses and every call up to that 1450 strike finished in-the-money.

Is the correction over and do we go back to a bull run? I can’t yet say, but the bears’ month of ruling the markets has been challenged. To extend the analogy, the ref has broken up the clinched pugilists so now it’s a renewed fight!

THE FED VS THE WORLD

Why Oil Prices Could Slide
For the last few years, energy prices have done well out of the gate in the first quarter. However, pressured equities will keep crude under pressure as well, so pay attention to the S&P 500 bias. For example, a close below 1400 could be bearish for oil, as most professional oil trades use the equities as an indicator.

THE FED VS THE WORLD
Reply   
Inside this massive building is a mega-Kinkos machine printing billions of dollars each day. ($4.77 billion just on Friday which by month’s end should total $85 billion.) These dollars are bombarding stock markets with fresh liquidity feeding bulls against all odds and logic.

Our job is to go with this despite misgivings and all manner of poor news. As a strategist first and technician or timer second, we and most investors, must recognize the dynamic at work and adjust to it. Worrying about debt will be for another day and until its forced on politicians, bankers and markets. In the meantime, ain’t we got fun!

And, until this money printing activity stops, this will be the underlying theme until either confidence in the activity is lost or bulls have to proceed without a net.

Believe it or not there are pundits today discussing that retail sales increased .5% in November-December. Well, it’s the holidays and what would one expect?

Fed official alleges Geithner may have alerted banks to rate cut
Reply   
WASHINGTON - Sat Jan 19, 2013 1:28am EST

(Reuters) - In the summer of 2007, as storm clouds gathered over the world's financial system, then-New York Federal Reserve President Timothy Geithner allegedly informed the Bank of America and other banks about the possibility the U.S. central bank would lower one of its critical interest rates, according to a senior Fed official.

Jeffrey Lacker, the head of the Richmond Fed, originally raised the allegation during a Fed conference call in August 2007, and he stuck to his 5-year-old claim against the current U.S. treasury secretary in a statement provided to Reuters on Friday.

"From conversations I had prior to the video conference call on August 16, 2007, I was aware of discussions among a few large banks about borrowing from their discount windows to support the asset backed commercial paper market," Lacker said in the statement. "My understanding was that (New York Fed) President Geithner had discussed a reduction in the discount rate with these banks in connection with these initiatives."
