We all know the Fed will start to taper sometime soon all they can do is taper or postpone tapering. They cannot decide never to taper. So the markets would start to speculate about the next possible timing of a tapering if they don't make that announcement on Wednesday.

I've said for a while that this is the ideal timing for a tapering because a press conference was already scheduled. Also it is logical that he would want to start the taper before a new Fed Chief is appointed. If not the week ahead, a new person will likely be nominated before the next Fed meeting.

I've marveled for years at reports buried in the earnings releases for major banks in which they appear to be able to repeatedly churn out trading results that not only buck the odds they defy physical statistical reality.

I'm speaking of the penchant for big banks to turn in perfect quarterly trading records -- three month periods where they never once having a losing day.

Rolling Stone has since learned that a whistleblower complaint has been filed to the SEC identifying 16 of the world's biggest banks and hedge funds as the allegedly even-earlier recipients of this key economic data. The complaint alleges that this select group of customers received the data anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour ahead of the rest of the markets.

confidence to come shortly, will shed more light on direction, although dollar upside limited pre fomc. that said buying 98/98.50 makes sense as a set up for fomc.

Only a bulldozer can send gold prices higher.

Paris ib 12:43 GMT September 13, 2013
They know ahead

So your guy suggests:
1) that the banks holding gold have leased it out many times over and are now buying back for delivery (for the Germans).
2) that the banks buying have manipulated the gold price lower (though how they do this is not explained).
That story doesn't hold water. In the first place if they had just leased the gold they could show it to anyone who wanted to audit the gold. They never showed it to the Germans. Even if they had leased it out or onsold it many times over, they could still show it. All they would have to do is make sure not to have overlapping appointments for all those wanting to make sure the gold was actually there. In the second place, this business that the central banks are manipulating the gold price lower smacks too much of conspiracy theory: vague.

I'm sticking with my idea. The Germans found out in 2011 and 2012 that their certificates of deposit for gold were essentially worthless and, without making a fuss, they starting selling big time. And they are still selling because if they hold certificates for non-existent gold those certificates are really worthless. At the same time anyone interested in holding gold has been buying up 'for delivery' whenever possible and they have been taking delivery. So we have the delivery squeeze.

I think we will have a clear idea on taper after this Wednesday. Expect it to start out cautiously. The Summers appointment is completely unrelated to taper. Bernanke's term runs out in January and they had to allow time for the confirmation process.

We might have a clear taper schedule all set out by the time / if Summers takes the chair. It looks to me like Summers won't be the key to the size or the timing of the taper, so whatever these guys were trying to do with this leak, I'm not sure it carries all that much relevance for next week's announcement re the taper. How incredibly tiresome.

Yes. The taper decision will be made before he becomes chair, but I seriously doubt it will be over. Also, keep in mind that the Chair is not a dictator.

So in fact Summers might come in when the taper had already been announced and, maybe, might already be over? If they start tapering this month, it won't take that long for them to reduce FED purchases to nothing.

So the whole story could just be a major distraction. Summers might not make ANY taper decisions (except maybe not to start QE all over again in the case of another economic slowdown.... which is a very, very hypothetical future scenario and not really relevant to the current taper issue). Good grief.

GVI Forex john -- Inner Circle 09:02 GMT September 13, 2013

Honestly, I really don't know. The Summers talk does not go away. I'm wondering if the Nikkei story is another trial balloon. Their plan might be to change the subject from Syria?

Keep in mind that Summers would have to be approved by the Senate,. So he would not be coming in until early next year. As a practical matter, the Fed President has recently tended to be a non-partisan post. Summers was a very good Treasury Secretary under Clinton. He will be a good Chairman as would have been Yellen.

John what do you think the chances are for a Summers appointment? I saw somewhere that Obama was delaying any announcement until after the Syria crisis is resolved (one way or the other I guess).

Sept 13 () - WASHINGTON (Reuters) - An elite Syrian unit that runs the government's chemical arms program has been scattering the weapons to dozens of sites across the country, potentially complicating U.S. plans for air strikes, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The newspaper, citing unnamed U.S. officials and lawmakers briefed on the intelligence, said on its website on Thursday that a secretive military group known as Unit 450 had been moving the stocks around for months to help avoid detection of the weapons.

U.S. and Israeli intelligence agencies and Middle Eastern officials still believe they know the location of most of the government's chemical weapons supply, the Journal said.

But "we know a lot less than we did six months ago about where the chemical weapons are," one official was quoted as saying.

The Journal quoted a senior U.S. official as saying that Washington estimated that Damascus had 1,000 metric tons (1,102 tons) of chemical and biological agents, "although there might be more."

After traditionally storing most of its chemical and biological weapons at a few sites in western Syria, the government started dispersing the weapons about a year ago, officials said.

They added that the United States now believed the arsenal had been moved to up to 50 sites in the west, north, south and east of the country.

USDJPY leads the greenback move higher on rumours of Summers appointment

Kind of funny that the received wisdom these days is that the appointment of Summers to the FED will be positive for the USD given his role in global financial deregulation.

It is reported that Obama will delay any appointment to the FED. How ironic.

If this is Obama's agenda (more financial deregulation) then I doubt the actual appointment makes any difference.

I'm doing a re-edit since that last post was such a mess:

[email protected] the interesting thing about this is the little understood fact that the Federal Reserve in the United States, of which there are many, the Federal Reserve of New York is just one - and possibly the murkiest - is in fact NOT a Government institution. So the Germans, and others, have Gold stored with NON government institutions who appear to have, well, stolen it. Now the Germans are (and have been at least since the start of this year) selling all those little bits of paper which confirm they own Gold (stored with the Federal Reserve of New York). At the same time the Germans are buying Gold for delivery in an attempt to recoup at least some of their Gold. This explains both the fall in the price of tradeable Gold (which is likely to continue if not actually accelerate) and the squeeze on deliverable Gold.

U.S. Treasuries, on the other hand, are U.S. Government debt which means that all U.S. taxpayers are liable.

A very murky area.... and the way the U.S. has set up its finances with this private group of banks going under the name Federal Reserve and acting as the American Central Bank is the absolute murkiest.

Either way none of this does anything to improve the faith in the USD or the United States' economy.

The American Gov. stole the German gold ye ye.

The image of the US is now at the bottom of the trash can and not for that reason only.

That is the reason they try the best to bring prices of gold down.
Just to prevent a rush into gold, as a sign of mistrust in the US.
Those who didn't learn the case of Germany gold, will eventually learn it in US bonds.
If China will not remove fast enough their money from US investments, they will suffer the same faith.

But it is ok. The US has no physical gold, but their running dogs Banksters will sell you as much as you wish paper gold hehehe.

AUD/USD weakness here to stay, while below 0.9280...
Reply   
The healthy Aussie rally came to a sudden and rather unexpected end following an awful jobs report out of Australia yesterday, which seems to have acted as a well-timed reminder of what side is still dominating the AUD/USD charts.While a whisker away from blowing reported large stops above the 0.9350 handle yesterday, the downbeat jobs triggered a cascade of heavy offers in the Australian Dollar, with the abrupt reversal being confirmed by the print of a bearish outside day below 0.9280 on Thursday, after collapsing as low as 0.9225 along the US session, before a timid recovery got underway.

In a textbook technical retest, the AUD/USD rose to flirt with 0.9280 back again late US, yet was rejected to the pip by renewed committed sellers, whose conviction just took the exchange rate back below the 0.9250/55 support zone as we type these lines.

Range with risk to further downside anticipated

In terms of fundamentals, there will be no more first-tier drivers for neither currency until FOMC next Sept 17, barring any geopolitical tension coming back. This means a range environment - risk skewed to the downside - may ensue until FOMC.

It is more than probable that given the bearish technical close on Thursday, large sectors of the AUD/USD trading community may have turned their views to the bearish side again. Immediate support comes at 0.9225/35 - early Thur US lows - ahead of 0.9190/0.92 and deeper falls towards 0.9120 - Sept 5 swing low -. On the upside, a break and hold above 0.9280 first in needed.

Sept 13 : The greenback falls on fading expectation of Fed's tapering

Market Review - 12/09/2013 22:29GMT

The greenback falls on fading expectation of Fed's tapering

The U.S. dollar weakened broadly on Thursday as doubts over whether the Federal Reserve will start tapering stimulus on the Federal Reserve's policy decision next week persisted after last week’s U.S. jobs report.

U.S. initial jobless claims fell sharply last week to 287K versus previous reading of 323K, dropping to the lowest level since 2006, however, the report said the decline was largely due to two states not processing all their claims because of computer upgrades.

Versus the yen, the dollar continued to move lower in Asia and extended fall from Wednesday's high of 100.62 to 99.20 at European open, however, the release of sharp drop in U.S. claims lifted price briefly to 99.73 in New York morning. Later, dollar's broad-based weakness pressured price again and the pair tanked to a fresh session low at 99.00 in New York afternoon before recovering.

The single currency retreated versus U.S. dollar in Asia after failure to penetrate Wednesday's high of 1.3325 and ratcheted lower in Europe in part due to active cross-selling of euro, price tanked to a session low of 1.3256 in New York morning after release of U.S. jobs report but climbed back above 1.3300 level to 1.3325 again later in the day due to dollar's broad-based weakness, last seen around 1.3300 near New York closing.

On the data front, report showed that industrial production in the euro area fell by 1.5 percent in July, the biggest drop in 12 months, and declined 2.1% on year-to-year basis to the lowest level since April 2010.

Cable dropped in tandem with euro in Asia and European trading and briefly fell to 1.5776 in New York morning, however, renewed dollar's broad-based weakness lifted price from there and cable later rose above Wednesday's high of 1.5832 to a fresh 7-month peak at 1.5840 before profit-taking pressured price to 1.5805.

In the other news, Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said on Thursday that 'if recovery were to falter, we would consider providing extra stimulus; economy is picking up, stimulus is working; although it is early days, we think we are on path to return inflation to 2%; one-member-one vote MPC is a strength of UK monetary policy system; uncertainties on UK productivity and labour market slack are larger than usual; new MPC members will need to declare if they will operate under forward guidance; rise in long-term interest rates in advanced economies is because of stronger growth outlook; need to make sure this is not another false dawn; sustainable rebalancing of U.K. economy requires return to productivity growth above what BoE forecasts; I am not afraid to raise interest rate if appropriate.'

In commodity currencies, RBNZ kept benchmark rate at 2.5 percent on Thursday but signalled interest rate hike next year, New Zealand dollar rose to a 3-week high of 0.8158 after the hawkish statement before easing. Meanwhile, Australian dollar tumbled from a near 3-month peak at 0.9355 to as low as 0.9227 after Australian employment change posted its worst showing in five months, a decrease of 10.8K versus market expectation of a gain of 10.0K and declined for the second straight month.

Data to be released on Friday:

New Zealand Business NZ PMI, ANZ consumer confidence, Japan industrial production, capacity utilization, EU trade balance, U.S. PPI, retail sales, university of Michigan consumer confidence, and business inventories.
