U.S. says will act 'in days' if no Russian action in Ukraine
The US does not seem to understand that Europe gets 30% of its gas needs (Germany 40%) and as I mentioned on here over 2 yrs ago once The Bear turns the tap off........ Yes the US did say recently that they would try to supply Europe but that's pie in the sky. never will happen, certainly not at an affordable price, wont be able to sustain permanent delivery and lastly not for at least 3 yrs for initial supply

"No helmets, no food, no uniforms, no fuel in tanks.
don't ya remember when parents got together to pay for UpArmouring Army Humvees during the Iraq War. the Army just bought off the rack standard HVs. Also buying Ceramic body armour for their soldier children stationed in Iraq , since the issued Body Arm. was heavy and crap.
Some "enterprising" companies - Force Protection - for one, made a ton of money, in UpArmouring...going public and selling stock and cashing out. Ceramic body armour was a winner too.

without action ?! Is Kerry that insensitive ?
Ukraine, short on military budget, starts fundraising drive, according to washingtopost
"No helmets, no food, no uniforms, no fuel in tanks... its best personnel dismissed... men routinely paid bribes to avoid service, leaving thin ranks filled by the poor (ouch ouch) ...People across the country have responded by pulling together for the Support the Ukrainian army fundraising drive.. Children have held fairs and bake sales to raise money. Adults have delivered food and water to tent encampments. Community groups have collected shoes, clothes and canned goods... $2 million came from cellphone users who made 50-cent donations from their accounts by calling a designated number....
Wonder what sort of reports is Biden sending

*KERRY SAYS GENEVA ACCORD ONLY 'PIECE OF PAPER' WITHOUT ACTION
from Phil's Stock World:
The Fed has essentially borrowed money, on your behalf, and GIVEN it to their member banks at 0.25% interest (ie. FREE) who CLEARLY are not lending it out. And why should they? They can simply turn around and buy TBills by leveraging their cash 10x (banks can do that) and collect 3% for 10 years X 10 = 30% while the Fed charges them 0.25% for a 29.75% annual profit on every dollar. Why then, should they lend it to you? Why should they offer you interest on your deposits when the Fed gives them all the money they want for free?

EURUSD Fair Value 11400
Fwiw... We have not been able to trade above 13966 for more than 1 month. I worked out that it is possible that EUR/USD can head to 114 from current levels. I have the ETA too but that requires some fine tuning to get to the actual day but for now it may take many weeks/months.
11400 is an approximate level it can over or undershoot this level, but once the trend is confirmed then this is the ending point of the existing trend .i.e. 11400.
Hope this helps.
I am off to ZzZzZz land!!!

More on the renewed tensions in the Ukraine, although U.S. President Obama has been the most vocal person in calling for more sanctions on Russia if the crisis in Ukraine flares up, some in the 4-side accord are placing foucs on de-escalation with Russia. Reuters news reported on Sun German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said he wished as much emphasis would be placed on preventing an escalation of tensions with Russia over Ukraine as there is at the moment in threatening economic sanctions.
In an interview to appear in Germany's Bild am Sonntag newspaper on Sun, Steinmeier appeared to be referring to threats from the United States as well as fm within Germany about the need for economic sanctions against Russia.
Steinmeier said "I sometimes wish that the same engagement being used for the debate about sanctions would also exist when it comes to avoiding a further escalation." He then added "We've already exhaustively discussed the sanctions issue."

... In the week ahead, U.S. housing data on Tuesday will likely confirm that the spring selling season got off to a slow start last month. Commerce Department data on Wednesday is tipped to show new home sales little changed, though the durable goods orders report on Thursday is expected to show a 2.0 percent increase in overall orders and a 1.5 percent rise in the orders for core capital goods.
While the outlook for U.S. monetary policy remains key to the dollar's direction, comments from Federal Reserve officials will temporarily cease from Tuesday, due to the formal blackout that prohibits any public communications on policy until the Friday after the next regular Federal Open Market Committee meeting taking place April 29-30.
