Bundestag approves bank reform to protect taxpayers

"When the rules come into force in 2015, bank executives may face prison terms of up to five years if they demonstrably violate the new principles of risk management and cause damage to their institutions."
Is that to make one laugh or cry ?

Insight and analysis from The Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones team in Brussels:

How Safe Should Bank Deposits Be? - wsj
Key Attributes of Effective Resolution Regimes for Financial Institutions - FSB (.pdf)

What / who is the Financial Stability Board: (from FSB website)

"The FSB has been established to coordinate at the international level the work of national financial authorities and international standard setting bodies and to develop and promote the implementation of effective regulatory, supervisory and other financial sector policies. It brings together national authorities responsible for financial stability in significant international financial centres, international financial institutions, sector-specific international groupings of regulators and supervisors, and committees of central bank experts."

A list of FSB member institutions

The FSB is currently chaired by Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of Canada. Its Secretariat is located in Basel, Switzerland, and hosted by the Bank for International Settlements (BIS). It is funded by the BIS.
Bottom line: the FSA is charged with the development of a "policy framework to address the systemic and and moral hazard risks associated with systemically important financial institutions� under the leadership of ex GS men, a bail-in scheme for all of G20 to try to mitigate the potential socio-financial terror posed by TBTF banks.

Forex Trading Theme for the Week

-- GVI Forex Trading Theme of the Week--

Fundamental sentiment in favor of the USD has continued to improve in the latest week, even though the general tendency of USD positive economic data in favor of the currency appeared to be cooling. The currency is being given a lift by a growing perception that the Fed is now considering an early start to tapering off its quantitative Easing (QE) program. Presumably, this tapering off of purchases of government bonds would happen over an extended period of time. The pace of the tapering would be determined by economic conditions. The big surprise of the week was a comment late Thursday by San Francisco Fed President Williams (dove), who said that the central bank might be able to start to trim its bond purchases by the summer. Given the source, his comments were seen as significant. The official start of summer is less than a month away.

The week ahead will see the minutes from the latest Fed Meeting (May 1)and testimony by Chairman Bernanke to the House. This testimony will give him ample opportunity to signal to the markets What the current intentions of the central bank may be. Early in the week, U.K. data could influence the GBP after several European and a Canadian holiday on Monday. A BOJ decision is due on Tuesday. The second half of the week sees a number of flash PMI reports and then the critical German IFO Survey on Friday.

Entry: Target: Stop:

EUR-GOLD : The market is going to tackle the barrier at 1060.3 // 1062.9. Panic selling will be triggered if the market is trading below 1059.6. On the other hand the market is stable if it can close above 1100.7 in the New York session.

Entry: Target: Stop:

EUR/USD : Critical Point 1.2797

The market has fired a warning signal that it is going to reverse its course after hitting the critical point at 1.2797 in the last trading session and EUR/USD was able to close within 1.2814 // 1.2830 this week in the New York session. On this Monday I am expecting the market to tackle 1.2886 in the Asian session.
