By: Prieur_du_Plessis

By: ForexPros

The Great Crash of U.S. Dollar Begins Following Record Low Interest Rate / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: ForexPros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe USD started a bit better overnight but began to fall off as traders trimmed long positions ahead of today’s economic news. This morning’s CPI and Housing data was mixed for traders as lower CPI was offset by weaker housing data; the majors began a steady climb into the FOMC rate announcement which of course was the big news of the day. In a surprise move, the FOMC voted unanimously to cut rates a larger than expected 75 BP putting the FF rate at .25% and announcing to the world that the USD is now the cheapest currency on the planet.

U.S. Dollar Crashes Through Support Treasury Bonds to Follow / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past several days the dollar has gone into a severe decline, and this drop does not look like a reaction within an ongoing uptrend, as was the case in September, for as we can see on the 6-month chart it follows the development of a Head-and-Shoulders top area, a distribution pattern that took nearly 2 months to form. It looks like the dollar has broken down from an important reversal pattern. We had correctly identified the Head-and-Shoulders top back when the dollar index was high in the Right Shoulder of the pattern, when a Dollar Special update was posted on the site on 5th December, warning of a probable imminent dollar breakdown.

Zero Interest Rate Bound Fed Breaks U.S. Dollar / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Fed's shift towards a range of 0-0.25% in its fed funds target zero intensifies the yield assault to the dollar, leaving little chance for traders but to extend speculative and directional offers in the currency. The decision prompts the biggest 2-day rallly in EURUSD (4.8%) following last week's 5.1% jump. The dollar is unlikely to immediately descend into an uncontrollable decline as the easing campaigns of overseas central bankers and secular market volatility has yet to recapture its peak. But the longer term prospects ahead appear particularly ominous for the world's reserve currency once global economic stability starts to buildup and the demand/supply schedule of commodities further moves towards the price.

U.S. Dollar Slides Ahead of FOMC Interest Rate Cut Meeting / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: ForexPros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe USD remains under pressure to end Monday as several technical levels fail putting the majors on the offensive into tomorrows’ FOMC meeting. Analysts remain optimistic for a 50 BP cut in rates adding a bit of weight to current USD sentiment. At this point the USD remains the worlds’ number 2 low-yielding currency with only the Yen providing less. With year-end repatriation into higher-yielding currencies as traders square-books with only a few solid trading days to go into year-end the USD appears likely to suffer more losses this week.

U.S. Dollar Topping Action Intensifies, Sell Dollars into Strength / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: ForexPros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe USD opens the week on a softer note and remains under light pressure at the start of New York trade. Overnight action was subdued with most of the action contained in Yen cross spreads after the release of Japan’s Tankan report; traders note that the report was very soft and below forecasts prompting some analysts to expect the BOJ to cut interest rates at some point soon. With rates at .3% from the BOJ it is difficult to expect that a rate cut would help much as the bank has held effectively a zero-rate policy since the 1990’s; USD/JPY is lower at 90.74 with highs at 91.37 and lows at 90.47 making for an inside range day with lower two-way action. Traders report bid interest on the dip to 90.50 area likely from option defense and profit-taking from shorts. Additionally, EURO/JPY was firmer after the Tankan report which helped to support USD/JPY.

Euro Set to Fall Against the U.S. Dollar / Currencies / Euro

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJack Crooks writes: There's been a strong move against the U.S. dollar this week. But am I envious of the euro right now? Definitely not.

Technically the dollar is extremely overbought. So I expect a decent, near-term correction upward in the euro. However, according to my analysis, the euro is set to weaken substantially against the U.S. dollar over the next several months.

U.S. Dollar Set to Decline on Back of Bailouts Frenzy / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: The plethora of bank and corporate bailouts, stimulus plans and interest-rate cuts that the U.S. government has produced over the last three months can only lead to one outcome: The U.S. dollar has to decline.

During the crisis so far, the dollar in general, and U.S. Treasury bonds in particular, have been regarded as a “safe haven,” making the dollar strong and pushing long-term U.S. Treasury rates downward. In the New Year, however, this is likely to change – the weight of the added supply of dollars in circulation will be too great for the greenback to shrug off.

By: MoneyWeek

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf this isn't a sterling crisis, what is? Not content with plunging 25% against the dollar over the last six months, the pound is now fast heading for parity with the euro.

Our so-called government may think it can solve Britain 's economic problems via borrowing like crazy, and letting sterling collapse into the bargain.

U.S. Dollar in Retreat as Corporate Failure Risks Soar on U.S. Auto's Bailout / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt may be premature to call the recent currency developments a paradigm shift, but it is worth shedding light on these changes as the news from Capitol Hill overlap with thin trading volumes. The current weakness of the US dollar is not only taking part against higher yielding counterparts such as the commodity currencies (which was usually assign of improved risk appetite), but also against the Japanese yen. Since the intensification of the market and economic weakness, the greenback would gain versus most major currencies with the exception of the yen during curtailed appetite, while losing ground versus its higher yielding counterparts and weighing on the yen at times of improved risk appetite.

By: ForexPros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe USD lost ground today after a mixed open this morning; traders note that volumes remained lighter but there was no doubt which side the orders were on. After a slightly higher open in Equities this morning the prospects for the USD tracked the rise and fall in Equities during the day; turning lower into mid-day stocks posted losses before recovering to trade back through the opening range.

British Pound Heading for Parity Against the Euro / Currencies / British Pound

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSterling continued its Crash of 2008 by falling to a new all time low against the Euro by trading below 1.14, which is just another marker enroute towards parity to the Euro as investors and speculators continue to adjust to the deteriorating fundamentals of record low interest rates, economic stagflation and an exploding pubic sector debt burden that is likely to cripple the British economy for many years AFTER the recession of 2009. Already some Bureau De changes are offering an exchange rate to the Euro of just 1.04.

U.S. Dollar Under Pressure / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: ForexPros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt was a disappointing day today for equities traders as the follow-on buying seen overnight failed to inspire traders in New York today; the DJIA shed over 200 points near the end of the day putting pressure on USD bears. Crude oil lost over $1.50/BBL as well putting conflicting fundamentals in play for equities traders. The net result for traders in the majors was solid two-way whipsaw over the course of New York trade; EURO rallying to post a nine-day high at 1.3002 looking very much like a test of the resting stops rumored to be at the 1.3030 area untouched before dropping back as equities gave back recent gains.

U.S. Dollar Weakens Amidst Signs of Easing Credit Crisis / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: ForexPros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHigher equities on follow-on strength from overnight positive stock prices helped to lift the majors against the USD with most pairs setting new highs against the Greenback in late trade. GBP regained the 1.4900 handle but still off the Asian highs of 1.5051 in New York; traders note that spillover strength from EURO is helping to hold GBP firmer. Additionally, cross-spreaders continued to buy Sterling on the crosses also bringing the upside in focus. Today’s close over the 1.4940 area is the highest close in six days suggesting a near-term bottom may be forming in that rate.

GBP and EURO on Hold Pending Interest Rate Decisions / Currencies / Futures Trading

By: ForexPros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe USD continued in solid two-way action driven mostly by the changing fortunes of stocks the past 24 hours. Traders note that most of the volume in the major pairs was ahead of the London fix when equities prices were higher in New York; likely a late sell-off on the release of the Fed’s Beige Book contributed to the decline in stocks late in the day .Despite the heavy focus on equities today, lower Gold and Oil prices helped to help underpin the USD across the board but most pairs didn’t extend past early New York volatility this morning.
