China Property Trust Defaults Forecast as Risks Flagged
China’s property trusts, grappling with repayments equivalent to the size of Puerto Rico’s economy, face rising default risks as a former central bank adviser dubs real estate the biggest threat to the economy.

As default concerns escalate, the cost of insuring China’s sovereign debt against non-payment is rising.

Weakness in commodity prices can be expected to continue weighing on the Australian dollar, says Emma Lawson, senior currency strategist at National Australia Bank. She says news from China that another company has been suspended over concerns about its ability to meet debt payments has further fanned concerns about the broader credit market in that country, and on from that, the broader state of economic growth. Lawson adds this tension is reported to have had a negative effect on copper prices, and yesterday, the news was iron-ore prices. "This is big news for Australia, as it remains our largest export market," Ms. Lawson said. "The Australian dollar has some of this negativity on commodity prices already in the price, but if risk sentiment drops and commodities fall further, you can expect a follow on in the AUD to continue."

aud dj
The Australian and New Zealand dollars are under pressure as markets "extended the previous day's defensive posture," says Westpac currency strategist Imre Speizer. He says weak Chinese data had weighed on commodity prices, in turn souring risk sentiment. A further fall in copper prices had weighed on currencies perceived as more risky. AUD/USD last at 0.8975 from 0.9028 late last session. Speizer says there's scope for the pair to slip below 0.8950 particularly if metal prices keep declining. NZD/USD last at 0.8471 from 0.8482. Speizer says the pair could fall to 0.8430, although RBNZ on Thursday could lend some support.

simple formula today - if $yen rallies buy Stock Futures - if $yen stays the same or falls - sell Stock Futures.

plenty of room for stocks to drop given the right formula

audusd is a pretty funny currency - took a full 24 hours to fall while everything else was .... I guess this is what is going to make it so offered when it gets down to 85 cents - all these buyers will be puking it out.

oil worked pretty well and hit at the targeted area.

Fwiw... This will not sit well with you guys but I am working without a model...

Those calls made since I came back are the first in 2.5-3 years as one of the guys mentioned a few days back... so better to trade off naked charts and let's see if my calls are worth their mettle... It will help me to fine tune my accuracy if nothing else.

Also on the yen call, I picked up a 79 level many years before (but kept quiet about it), and this level if I remember correctly was reached when they had the nuclear incident in Japan and it breached that and stitched through that level for almost 1 year dipping to I think 75 and then broke out headed to current levels. So I think it's worth it even though it's a naked call...

Did Banks Manipulate the Forex Market?

Do retail banks manipulate the FX markets?

I seriously did not know that... I know that central banks covertly manipulate them but they do this to guard against economic disequilibrium that results from wild fluctuations in market rates.

Retail banking? I never heard of this unless of course the retail banks customers collectively hound them into auctioning for dollars, customers like exporters, corporates, maybe a few hedge funds, a few rich muaa muaah people. Maybe then I think the retail banks go to the wholesale banks who in turn go to the banks of banks who have customers like central banks in their pockets too and maybe the shadow bankers who work for narcos and the shadow armies of various countries who demand and supply dollars according to their illicit trade and requirements.

Maybe banks don't do this willingly but have to unwillingly and unknowingly help their customers to profit while in turn making sure they make enough money to pay their helpful shadow bankers and their staff and in turn line the pockets of the shareholders and stakeholders some of whom may be the very same customers that demand and supply dollars. How can this be called market manipulation and more over how can one blame banks who are authorized by the centrals banks to auction or rig the markets so all on 1 side see to profit from disequilibrium as a natural process of everyday authorized and legal business?

The Treasury Department will sell $30 billion of 3-year notes, $21 billion of 10-year notes, and $13 billion of 30-year bonds. Today, tomorrow and Thursday. But that's not a huge deal. There is a lot of paper expiring this year (3 trillion?)... and the deficit to finance as well. The auction schedule remains sketchy. Last year - with a lot rolling over -yields rose sharply in the second half. Same deal this year? The U.S. has to now roll paper with yields sharply higher yields (the bottom line will be ugly). The Chinese mostly hold shorter dated paper - all they have to do is NOT roll over all their U.S. paper if they want to repatriate. No idea what type of paper the Japanese hold.

NFA Proposal to Impose Capital Requirements on CTAs and CPO's

The NFA is floating a proposal to impose capital requirements on CTAs and CPOs. While I feel that the NFA has the best of intentions, the net impact of this proposal would be to drive fledgling fund managers out of business. Imposing capital requirements would only increase the cost of doing business because presumably those funds would have to be maintained at some level and thus not be available for operating expenses as proposed.

I feel the net result of this proposal would be to drive new and small entrants out of business and would have no impact on fraudulent operators who have been operating illegally outside of the limits of the law.

Indeed. Just let the Chinese or Japanese try to repatriate their money. There was this insane article in Forbes the other day explaining how they couldn't actually do that... and the argument was circular (and crazy).

“If China does not buy the next Treasury bill… someone else will buy it with dollars, because it can`t be purchased with anything else but dollars. If China sells a T-bill out of its portfolio… it can only sell it for dollars."

9 self-created rules in order to stray positive

Bob very good to see, thanks.

For myself, I would add an hour or two a day meditation, it has made the world of difference to and for me.

From the outset, it is unrewarding, difficult and has little to commend it. After the first while, which will depend on the condition of the individual, there is peace beyond measure.

It's free, permanent and only has to be sought for.

It is there. it can be found.

No question. :-))

Ukraine may have to go nuclear, says Kiev lawmaker

KIEV, Ukraine — Ukraine may have to arm itself with nuclear weapons if the United States and other world powers refuse to enforce a security pact that obligates them to reverse the Moscow-backed takeover of Crimea, a member of the Ukraine parliament told USA TODAY.

The United States, Great Britain and Russia agreed in a pact "to assure Ukraine's territorial integrity" in return for Ukraine giving up a nuclear arsenal it inherited from the Soviet Union after declaring independence in 1991, said Pavlo Rizanenko, a member of the Ukrainian parliament.

"We gave up nuclear weapons because of this agreement," said Rizanenko, a member of the Udar Party headed by Vitali Klitschko, a candidate for president. "Now there's a strong sentiment in Ukraine that we made a big mistake."

His statements come as Russia raised the possibility it may send its troops beyond the Crimean peninsula on the Black Sea into the eastern half of Ukraine.

Copper Premiums May Bottom Out at $100 as Yuan Two-way Trading Curbs Financing Demand
SHANGHAI, Mar. 10 (SMM) – Spot premiums for imported copper may bottom out at $100 per tonne in China as importing losses enlarged further and a more two-way trading policy for Chinese yuan curbed financing demand.

Yangshan copper premiums, published by Shanghai Metals Market daily, slipped to $125-140 per tonne as of Friday, Mar. 7, from an average of $170 per tonne in mid February when they started sliding.

London-Shanghai price arbitrage continued to weaken, to the weakest since May 2012, despite sharp falls in London Metal Exchange’s copper prices last week.

``It is indeed rare to see the LME price, the arb ratio and import premiums fall simultaneously,’’ a trader at a Chinese leading trade house said, ``No doubt about the extreme weakness in the domestic copper market!’’

Loss of importing each tonne of copper nearly doubled to between 3,000-3,5000 yuan ($490-571) per tonne at present, from a loss of around 1,800 yuan at the year’s start, according to SMM data.

The yuan's dramatic fall in late February added to financing-deal makers nervousness about China's slowing economy and an increasingly risky shadow banking system.

Demand for copper financing deals subsided after China’s State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) announced an investigation into currency speculation disguised as trade finance in early December, SMM reported then.

Should Yangshan copper premiums reach around $100 per tonne, room for further drop would be limited, according to SMM’s research team, as the cost of delivery from LME warehouses in Johor, Malaysia to Shanghai is around $140 per tonne.

AceTrader March 11: Dollar trades mixed against other major currencies on Monday
Market Review - 10/03/2014 22:57GMT

Dollar trades mixed against other major currencies on Monday

The greenback traded mixed versus other major rivals on Monday as poor Chinese trade data and downbeat economic reports from Japan weighed on sentiment.

Data released over the weekend showed that exports from China fell 18.1% on a year-over-year basis in February, confounding expectations for a 7.5% increase, following a rise of 10.6% in January. A separate report on Monday showed that Japan posted record current account deficit of 1.589 trillion yen in January and fourth quarter growth was revised down.

Versus the Japanese yen, although the greenback opened sharply lower on Monday to 102.83 in New Zealand morning from Friday's New York close near 103.25, renewed buying quickly emerged and lifted the pair higher to 103.30 at Asian open. However, dollar retreated again to 102.98 in Tokyo morning, weighed down by the release of weaker-than-expected Japan GDP data together with the decline in Nikkei-225 index and then further to 102.94 in European morning before rebounding to 103.40 due partly to cross-selling in yen. Later, dollar chopped inside 102.83-103.41 for rest of the New York session, ended around 103.27 near New York closing.

Japan's economy grew 0.2% in the final three months of 2013, in line with market expectation. On a year-over-year basis, the economy expanded by 0.7%, compared to an initial estimate of 0.9%.

The single currency found renewed buying at 1.3869 in New Zealand and strengthened to 1.3892 in early Asia. Price later rose marginally higher to 1.3897 in European morning, near last Friday's fresh 2-1/4 year peak at 1.3915, but broad-based rebound in greenback pressured euro to 1.3868 ahead of New York open in part due to risk aversion on falling major shares markets. Later, the single currency dropped further to 1.3662 in New York afternoon before trading narrowly.

The British pound tumbled against euro and U.S. dollar on Monday as unexpectedly weak trade data from China prompted concerns over the outlook for the global economic recovery. Cable retreated versus dollar after meeting renewed selling at 1.6745 in New Zealand and then dropped below Friday's low at 1.6706 to 1.6683 in European morning. The pair fell further to 1.6625 and then 1.6622 in New York morning after comments from BoE's Bean before stabilising.

In U.K., Bank of England Deputy Governor Charles Bean said 'Further sterling strength "would not be particular helpful" for U.K. exports; advises against "getting too hung up on precise date at which bank rate first rises"; likely to learn a lot about recovery between now and spring 2015 when market prices in rate hike; there is more scope for housing investment to continue driving growth; BoE keeping a "beady eye" on housing market, in case low housing supply and high mortgage lending creates risks; reasonable grounds to expect business investment to take over from household demand as driver of U.K. recovery; reasonable to believable U.K. to pre-crisis productivity growth, uncertain when; most obvious risk to U.K. recovery is euro zero clearly concerns about emerging markets; main domestic risk to U.K. recovery is that it runs out of steam, and possibility that housing market becomes over-exuberant; Scottish independence could at minimum create a period of uncertainty; important review of banks in euro zone is conducted well, in a way that enhances confidence; current level of sterling fine if it stays where it is; if sterling appreciates further, lower inflation pressures may keep policy looser for longer.'

ECB policymaker Christian Noyer said on Monday 'monetary policy should remark active because persistent low inflation threatens price stability; there are "permanent and deep forces" pushing inflation down at both the euro area and global level; there is no deflation in euro area today, inflation expectation are firmly anchored in positive territory; money market yield curve needs to remain lows; shrinking of ECB balance sheet "not a problem"; euro zone banks can always draw more liquidity.'

Chicago Fed President Charles Evans told reporters at Columbus State University that 'the Federal Reserve should revamp its so-called forward guidance by reinforcing that interest rates will stay low for "quite some time" and that much will depend on continued improvement in the labor market.' Evans said "It ought to be something that captures well the fact that (rates are) going to continue to be low well past the time that we change the language; Tick through the different labor market indicators: payroll employment, unemployment, labor force, vacancies, job openings and things like that; we somehow want to capture that general improvement in labor market indicators, but that is hard." Evans added "we're going to have accommodation for really quite some time."
