Moar Good News to rub in your face:
____________________________________

The American markets are getting worried again. But this time the fear is refreshingly different.

The worry is that economic growth may be about to accelerate.

After five years of a disappointing economy, such a concern sounds too good to be true, and perhaps it is. But imagine what will happen if it is not. We’ve been complaining for years about how slow the recovery is. It would be great if it sped up appreciably
.
Then this week the Standard & Poor’s Case-Shiller home price index was reported to have leapt 10.9 percent over the year through March. That was the largest gain since 2006, when the housing bubble was in full expansion. And on the same day that was reported, the Conference Board said consumer confidence was at a five-year high

Don’t Be Alarmed, It’s Just the Economy About to Accelerate

An electric iron previously made in Australia might last ten years or more, even with a family of four it would get used a maximum of two hours a week.

In the last two years we've gone through four electric irons distributed under an iconic Australian name but made in China. No big deal the iron costing about AUD 80 is under a two year warranty. You see each time I take it back to the store I get a new iron with a new receipt with a new warranty.

AS Malcolm Fraser said (an Australian prime minister) there's no such thing as a free lunch.

Globalization: The gift that keeps on giving

Japanese authorities have canceled a tender offer to buy wheat from the U.S., after unapproved genetically modified wheat was found in an Oregon field, Reuters reported on Thursday. Other major wheat importers South Korea, China and the Philippines also said they were monitoring the situation, after the find stirred concerns that the modified wheat could have made it to the marketplace, the report said. On Wednesday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said it had conducted a genetic test on the wheat and found that it was an experimental type produced by Monsanto Co. /quotes/zigman/267799/quotes/nls/mon MON -0.43% that hadn't been approved for sale. The European Commission has since said it has asked EU member states on Thursday to check imports of U.S. soft white wheat.

One hopes the Reserve Bank was listening. The upside of the mining boom is behind us - and what a rise it was, with mining investment accounting for roughly half the economy's growth since 2010. Even if the descent is gradual, as the Reserve hopes, mining investment from here on will mostly be detracting from Australia's growth rate, not dominating it.
Garnaut is right: we need to bring down interest rates to bring down the dollar, so firms in other trade-exposed industries have the incentive to invest and expand to pick up the slack mining will leave.

Remember Toxic dry wall from China?
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
In Germany, solar power was a political priority. They don’t have much sun, but they have more sun than oil, the logic went. Now even Bosch Solar Energy AG is fleeing the business after burning through $3.1 billion. Same story in France, in Spain. Bloodletting everywhere. They all blamed the low prices of Chinese solar panels. Complaints that led to anti-dumping proceedings in the US and aggravated the trade war between the EU and China

But solar power generators, from utilities with large-scale installations to farmers with solar panels on their barns, were ecstatic about the low prices. They enjoyed subsidies, nearly free financing, and the hope that the system would more than pay for itself over the course of its 25-year life span. It would be a good deal.

But it might not be. The price war that Chinese manufacturers waged was a suicide mission. Now even they’re going bankrupt, including their erstwhile number one, Wuxi Suntech, when the banks pulled the ripcord in March. Existentially threatened, they cut costs ... and corners.

Defective solar panels can be costly. The New York Times described what happened to the PV installation on a warehouse roof in Southern California whose promise of a 25-year life span disintegrated along with the protective coatings on the panels after only two years, and part of it went up in smoke when defects caused two fires.

when you look through tinted glass you dont see everything as clearly as you might

one can debate whether the rise is driven by one thing or another but the recent rise hasnt yet got near to retracing the falls since 2008, while average US house prices since 2000 are up not much more than cpi. household debt has increased about 20% to 117%. this is roughly around uk levels in 2000, but there house prices have roughly doubled since then while household debt has soared to over 150%.

dc CB a day or two ago zh claimed this : Meanwhile, Big Investors Quietly Slip Out The Back Door On Housing As "Stupid Money" Jumps In

dc CB 17:48 GMT May 30, 2013
United States

FWIW
In all of the "discussion" that I heard yesterday on NPR and PBS (the intellectual news sources for the USA) about the surge in housing prices, there was not a single mention of large numbers houses being snapped-up wholesale by large investment firms (with access to 0% money) as one of the causes for the rise in price. The implication of all the stories - by this omission -was that actual real people/families were coming back into the market and bidding up prices on houses.

ZH presents Zillow's side of the story.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

* Per Zillow...>44% of US Homeowners are Zombified; Over 60% when including income/credit restrictions

* As a result, the nations' "Maximum Potential Demand" profile has been gutted; evident in mediocre Existing & New Home Sales volume

* With structurally weak organic "Maximum Potential Demand"; First-Time buyer demand at 4-year lows; Distressed Resales at 6-year lows; New-Era "Investor" demand falling sharply on every dollar house prices rise; and rates rising where will demand come from to carry this sector going forward?

Time To Sell Foreclosed Homes Hits Record

Direct demands soared with 20.68% of the takedown going to Direct bidders, the second highest ever in this series, and lower only to December's 23.11%. Indirects were no slouch either, with a final allotment of 40.84%, leaving just 38.48% for Dealers, the lowest take down for 2013.

So with very strong primary market demand along the belly, it is safe to say all rumors of a blow up in the US bond market are greatly exaggerated, and at least for now, any fears of a great "vortexing" can be put to rest. Remember: TSYs still continue to be the primary source of repoable collateral and for the time being at least, everyone still wants them.

Current level: EURUSD 1.2983

1,2972 seems to be a pivotal support as a break would confirm a DOWN CSA off the high while 1,2961 break is needed to violate the UP CSA.

This assumes the upside is currently out of steam. Above 1.2988 would violate the DOWN CSA setup. Use it as a stop if playing for the DOWN CSA.

It is so exciting that it is buching up Kuroda's panties: “As far as the markets for long-term government securities are concerned, in which the Bank of Japan is directly involved through its market operations, it is extremely desirable for them to move stably,”.. .. .. “We are going to conduct our market operations in a flexible manner to head off, as much as possible, volatility in long-term interest rates, which were rising temporarily recently"

EUR/USD : Critical Point 1.2797

euro - 200 day ma - 13030 - strong resistance but could give way even if temporary.
daily trendline - 13075 - even if poor data knocks dollar, think breaking this one will be a bridge too far for today. good area to sell but may not be reached today.
support 12930, 12900 12880. buying dips and fading rallies has been working for a while, change when pattern changes.
yen - whisker away from 50% fibo 10035. since good bounce so any return risks going down to 100. topside should be limited to handful of pips above 200 hour. above 10260/80 looking at return to months high - consensus slowly moving towards looking for lower nearterm.

RF you got that right.

The whole idea that the Japanese were going to export domestic savings was illogical. But that's what the propaganda machine has been putting out, even while the U.S. Treasury market tanks BIG TIME. Meanwhile the data does not support those ideas and what happens to the data? Well it gets reported in fine print very briefly. I had h.ell of a time finding the information on the massive Japanese capital REPATRIATION which was reported last night. Talk about media black out of inconvenient data. Last time there was a piddling amount of Japanese buying of foreign bonds (after two months of massive selling) and it was all over the press in huge headlines. This month's data..... hardly reported at all. Unbelievable. But draw your own conclusions. I guess they may wheel out Soros again in the hope of resparking the avalanche of margin USD/JPY buying. You can't play that game forever. And when margins start getting called it's game over.

LONDON — Investors facing record low bond yields are increasingly chasing higher returns via complex derivatives, the instruments at the root of the 2008 global financial crisis, which can punch yawning holes in balance sheets if they go awry.

"The low interest rate environment is pushing clients to search for yield," said Sébastien Gyger, head of portfolio management for private clients at Lombard Odier.

"Volume in structured products has been high and has picked up, notably since the beginning of the year."

They are typically deals struck directly by a bank and an investor "over the counter" (OTC), not via an exchange, and their bespoke nature and complex terms mean they are much harder to offload than a stock, bond or unit in an exchange traded fund (ETF) if they start making losses.

They also expose their owners to the risk of default by the bank that creates them, unlike shares and bonds.

The notional value of the global OTC market has been roughly steady throughout the crisis and stood at $633 trillion at the end of 2012, according to data from the Bank for International Settlements, a sum with more than enough potential to destabilize the global financial system

But I remember well GEP and his GBP trades.

But I stick with it - Dil get's the gold medal - for extremely timely calls. And because he belongs to the rare group for almost never being wrong.
And he gets the silver medal for his overall performance. As far as I'm aware of it.

Money Laundering

Mexico is in the grip of a murderous drug war that has killed over 150,000 people since 2006. It is one of the most violent countries on earth. This drug war is a product of the transnational drug trade which is worth up to $400 billion a year and accounts for about 8% of all international trade.

The American government maintains that there is no alternative but to vigorously prosecute their zero tolerance policy of arresting drug users and their dealers. This has led to the incarceration of over 500,000 Americans. Meanwhile the flood of illegal drugs into America continues unabated.

One thing the American government has not done is to prosecute the largest banks in the world for supporting the drug cartels by washing billions of dollars of their blood stained money. As Narco sphere journalist Bill Conroy has observed banks are ”where the money is” in the global drug war.

HSBC, Western Union, Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase&Co, Citigroup, Wachovia amongst many others have allegedly failed to comply with American anti-money laundering (AML) laws.

The Mexican drug cartels have caught the headlines again and again due to their murderous activities. The war between the different drug cartels and the war between the cartels and government security forces has spilled the blood of tens of thousands of innocent people. The drug cartels would find it much harder to profit from their murderous activity if they didn’t have too big to fail banks willing to wash their dirty money.

In March 2010 Wachovia cut a deal with the US government which involved the bank being given fines of $160 million under a ”deferred prosecution” agreement. This was due to Wachovia’s heavy involvement in money laundering moving up to $378.4 billion over several years. Not one banker was prosecuted for illegal involvement in the drugs trade. Meanwhile small time drug dealers and users go to prison.

If you dined on tilapia recently, chances are it came from China. And that artificial vanilla you just used to make cookies? It, too, may have made the same long journey to your kitchen in the United States.

A growing amount of food commonly consumed by Americans — ranging from canned tuna and mandarin oranges to fresh mushrooms and apple juice — is now being imported from China. By the end of last year, the United States imported 4.1 billion pounds of food products from China, according to the Agriculture Department.

“We should definitely give the Chinese an award for creativity in adulterating foods,” said Jeff Nelken, a food safety expert. “They are a great resource for counterfeited foods, like honey products that don’t seem to have any pollen in them.”

THE Reserve Bank will all but certainly leave its official interest rate unchanged next Tuesday.

It will do so in such a febrile environment that the possibility remains of further rate cuts later in the year, while at the same time, we could equally have seen the last, at least in this cycle.


But a big fall in the dollar could also signal that we needed both those synthetic cuts and some more real ones as well.

It is useful to understand that point in addressing the popular question of the moment - whether the RBA would have cut at its meeting earlier this month if it had foreseen the big fall in the dollar since the meeting.

The day it cut, it sent the dollar down below US102c. But by the end of that week, our dollar had kicked back above US102c. Yesterday it went decisively through US96c.

What happens to the Aussie dollar is critical in this. A further big fall in the dollar would effectively deliver synthetic rate cuts.

Dollar tumbles on broad long liquidation

The greenback tumbled against majority of its peers on Wednesday as U.S. Treasury yields fell from their recent highs, prompting investors to liquidate their recent long dollar positions.

Earlier in Asia, despite a brief rebound to 1.2864 in Asian morning, the single currency dropped to session low at 1.2838 ahead of European open. However, price found good buying interest there and rallied in European morning on dollar's broad-based weakness, euro climbed further to an intra-day high at 1.2977 ahead of New York open as a decline in U.S. bond yields prompted investors to sell the buck. Later, price pared intra-day gains and retreated to 1.2919 in New York afternoon before trading narrowly.

Versus the Japanese yen, although the greenback dropped from 102.53 to 102.02 in Asian morning, price recovered to 102.48 ahead of European open. However, price fell sharply to 101.53 in European morning on active cross-buying of yen before tumbling further to an intra-day low at 100.71 on dollar's weakness. Later, price pared intra-day losses and recovered to 101.18 in New York afternoon.

The British pound rebounded to 1.5038 in Asian morning before dropping in tandem with euro to session low at 1.5008 ahead of European open. Despite rebound to 1.5071 in European morning, cable fell briefly but sharply to 1.5025 after the release of much weaker-than-expected CBI distributive trades. However, dollar's broad-based weakness pushed the pair higher and cable rallied to an intra-day high at 1.5147 in New York morning before trading sideways.

U.K. CBI distributive trades in May came out at -11, worse than the expectation of 3.

In other news, BOJ senior official said 'many market participants asked BOJ to buy JGBs more often in smaller amount; many market participants said BOJ should avoid buying JGBs on JGB auction days; hope to announce JGB purchase schedule for June sometime late on Thursday.'

On the data front, German unemployment rate in May remains at 6.9%, same as the forecast. German CPI in May came in at 0.4% m/m n 1.5% y/y, vs the forecast of 0.2% n 1.3% respectively.

Data to be released on Thursday:

Australia building approvals, private capex, Swiss GDP, Italy PPI, EU economic sentiment, business climate, consumer confidence, Canada PPI, U.S. GDP annualised, PCE, jobless claims and pending home sales.

Growth hit by mining boom end

I note many of the analysts who a fortnight or so ago were calling for AUD/USD to rally back over parity are revising their forecasts down but still within the range of 90 cents to USD 1.00.

The last mining boom ended in 1974. At that time the AUD was a managed currency. The high was USD 1.4875 on 9th September 1973 but by November 1976 it had declined to 1.0123 after the Fraser government devalued by 17.5%.

Given that the exchange rate is set by market rather than a group of bureaucrats the decline is likely to be more rapid. Whether it matches that what occurred in 2008n remains to be seen

I read a very interesting paper written by Ross Garnaut which doesn't paint such a rosy outlook for Australia. Self-interest is likely to win the day thus the changes required are unlikely to be introduced.

Growth hit by mining boom end

Jacob Greber Economics correspondent

The OECD has for the first time cast serious doubt about ­Australia’s future after the resources boom, joining the growing fears among experts about how to manage the ­economic ­transition.

In an unusually blunt report, the ­Paris-based group forecast ­below-average growth this year and acknowledged the pending September election is creating uncertainty in the economy.

The report added to mounting ­evidence global investors are reassessing Australia’s previous resilience.

The world’s biggest bond fund, PIMCO, on Wednesday said the Reserve Bank of Australia may need to cut official interest rates even lower as investment in resource projects slows and a weaker Chinese economy saps demand for iron ore, coal and other exports.

“The new normal has finally arrived down under,” said fund managers Adam Bowe and Robert Mead, ­referring to a term coined by ­California-based PIMCO to describe the post-crisis world of low growth and interest rates.

The dollar continued its three-week tumble after official figures raised more doubts about the struggling construction industry, which the Reserve Bank is counting on to offset slowing mining and gas investment.

Sudden China slowdown our biggest threat “The OECD has endorsed the Gillard government’s fiscal strategy,” he said. The body urged the government to “gradually balance” the budget to rebuild Australia’s capacity to respond to any future downturn. The biggest threat to Australia is a sudden economic slowdown in China, which could force the Reserve Bank to cut rates further. “The uncertainties weighing on the pace of fiscal consolidation should be clarified following the election scheduled for September 2013,” it said.
