No. If, however, the underlying strategy is correct the dips are likely to continue to be bought.
While India's reserve are precariously low, do they have the cash to finance additional purchases plus the infrastructure to store it.

The Case for a Chinese Real Estate Crisis – It could crush the Aussie

I think it is fair to say the Aussie is in trouble if China continues to slow its own demand for resources. And I think it is fair to say the Aussie gets crushed should China experience a crisis triggered by the feedback loop between real estate and shadow banking.

Eric Holder had a busy day

(Reuters) - The U.S. government urged a federal judge to throw out a lawsuit seeking to scuttle its landmark $13 billion settlement with JPMorgan Chase & Co, rejecting a claim that the accord let the largest U.S. bank off too easily.

Better Markets Inc, a nonprofit critical of Wall Street, had in February accused the government of "unilaterally" engineering a backroom accord giving JPMorgan "blanket civil immunity" for selling shoddy mortgage securities before the financial crisis.

In a court filing on Monday night, however, the Justice Department said its decision to settle was "presumptively" unreviewable, and that Better Markets lacked standing to sue.

The Justice Department's power "to settle claims of the United States is undiminished, and that includes 'the power to make erroneous decisions as well as correct ones,'" the department said, citing a 1928 U.S. Supreme Court decision.

"Plaintiff's claim that DOJ's decision to settle was arbitrary and capricious, or an abuse of discretion, must ... fail," it added.

Hearing one guy on CNBC saying that 101.20 was the old break-out level in USDJPY. Frankly I can't find it. He also noted 101.20 is the 200-day average. We have it in the same neighborhood (101.26 basis Monday close). The 200-day average is not as important to forex markets as it is to stocks.

He also said if USDJPY breaks significantly lower, then stocks could head south as well. I have trouble with the reasons for the correlation only that it works.



In the olden days there used to be a Soybean to Silver correlation because the price boards on the wall had the two commodities next to each other. So people traded it only because it worked!

Hmmm - a novel explanation for the strange bond behavior --
"As JPMorgan warns, expecting bond prices to collapse may require more patience.
"The risk is that bond yields rise no faster than the forwards. Financial overheating (asset inflation) proceeds much faster than economic overheating (CPI inflation). Before CPI inflation has a chance to emerge, and before monetary policy is truly above neutral, a financial bubble will have popped up somewhere and will have corrected, pushing the economy down. That is what has happened in the past 25 years.""

As of this hour, the USDJPY to S&P correlation is working nicely. Think about it, when major central banks move reserves out of EUR and into JPY, this is bearish for U.S. stox. Figure that out!

Also worries about the European periphery have been mounting, This is causing an unwinding of the intra-Eurozone arbitrage where funds had been flowing from lower (low risk) yielding sovereign debt to the high yielders (high risk). I suspect the widening of yield spreads has been weighing on confidence in the EUR.

Today sees no major data from the U.S. So we are back watching stox and the EURJPY cross.

Reply   
Today’s release of the April inflation numbers marks the start of a busy week for UK economic data. CPI inflation eased for a sixth consecutive month to 1.6% in March - its lowest rate since October 2009. However, we suspect that this downward trend was halted in April and forecast that CPI inflation edged back up to 1.7%. The RPI measure is also expected to pick up and we look for this to rise to 2.6% from 2.5%. This partly reflects the later timing of Easter this year compared to last, with increases in airfares feeding through. In terms of pipeline price pressures, we forecast the annual pace of input price deflation slowed to 4.7% in April from 6.5%. Output price inflation should see some acceleration, the annual rate rising to 0.8% from 0.5%. Yet, with factory gate price inflation still relatively contained and given the elevated level of sterling, the inflation outlook is expected to remain relatively subdued over the coming year.

Officials also say that thousands of attacks against the military networks of the United States and a number of Asian countries, including South Korea and Japan, have been attributed to the Chinese Navy’s First and Second Technical Reconnaissance Bureaus.

After Monday’s indictments, American officials say that they will be looking to see what, if any, steps Beijing takes to curb cyberespionage.

“A lot of this will depend on how the Chinese react to this in private,” said Mr. Lewis, the cybersecurity expert. “If they blow this off, you could imagine actions by the Treasury, visa restrictions on travel or restrictions on study.”

He added: “The Chinese have more to lose in this than we do.”
