US Dollar's Dramatic Rise Helps Level Currency Playing Field / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJack Crook writes: After a dramatic two weeks in the currency market, I figured now is a good time to run through the recent action. Plus, I'll give you my outlook for the major currencies making the most noise. Let's get started ...

A Good Couple of Weeks for the Buck
I'll keep it simple: The U.S. dollar and the U.S. economy have undergone no structural changes. Their relatively improved status seems to rest mostly on the worsening state of their major competitors — especially the euro.

Yikes! Major Reversal in Fortunes for the US Dollar and Gold / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Black_Swan

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTell us again about the safe haven qualities of gold? It has been going straight down ever since Russia decided to spread its wings again. Maybe it’s just a correction. But maybe it is, as it has always seemed to us, that gold is only a reflection of global purchasing power that simply ebbs and flows with the world’s money and its safe have reputation is just that, reputation. And in case anyone was confused as to the world’s money; it is the financial gurus’ favorite whipping boy—the good old US dollar.

The Strong US Dollar Illusion / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Peter_Schiff

Economists who now see American troubles spreading around the world are predicting that foreign central banks will ignore the gathering inflation threat and follow the Fed down the rate cutting path. Similarly, they argue that since the downturn began here, the U.S. recovery will likely be underway while the rest of world is still decelerating. These assumptions have prompted a rally in the dollar, a sell-off in gold, commodities and foreign stocks, and have cast doubts on the ability of foreign economies to “decouple” from the United States. Investors should not take the bait.

US Dollar Short-Term Rebalancing of Expectations, Long Term Risk / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Joseph_Brusuelas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecent price action in the foreign exchange market in our estimation is a function of a short-term rebalancing in expectations of global growth and demand for commodities. When combined with the pause in the rate hike campaign at the European Central Bank and growing uncertainty regarding the prospects for economic growth in the United States dollar bulls that have been lurking in the shadows for the past several years have re-emerged with gusto over the past two weeks. Although, the late summer rally in the dollar that has seen its value increase roughly 8% against the Euro, the case for a sustainable reversal in the fortunes of the greenback is neither persuasive nor compelling.

The Case For and Against the US Dollar / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have been cautioning for some time that volatility in the currency markets may increase further, even from the elevated levels of the past year. Nonetheless, violent market action is nerve rattling, even to seasoned investors. An uptick in volatility tends to be associated with an unwinding of leveraged positions. This is also the case this time, but the types of trades being unwound look very different from those just a few months ago when the “carry trade” was the talk of the day. To shed some light on recent activity, we will focus on some key forces we believe act on the dollar and the currency markets.

U.S. Dollar Soars Triggering Major Currency Breakouts / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBloomberg is reporting Euro Falls the Most in 8 Years on Reduced Bets for Higher Rate .
The euro fell the most in almost eight years, pushing the currency to a six-month low against the U.S. dollar, as traders pared bets the European Central Bank will raise interest rates as the economy slows.

The euro dropped below $1.50 for the first time since February after ECB President Jean-Claude Trichet yesterday said economic growth will be "particularly weak'' through the third quarter.

US Dollar Bottoming? / Currencies / US Dollar

By: David_Cai

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs the recent upward movement in the dollar a signal that it has bottomed out, and will now move back to a higher level? Or is it just a bull trap for those who are long the dollar?

Despite reports of cheaper prices for international travelers to the States due to the depreciated dollar, it would be wrong to safely conclude that U.S. goods are now so cheap at the existing exchange rate that the dollar must appreciate from its current level. Overall the price of American products is still too high to ease the massive trade imbalance between the U.S. and the rest of the world.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBloomberg is reporting Euro Slumps to Five-Month Low on Reduced Bets for Higher Rates .
The euro slumped to a five-month low against the dollar as traders pared bets that the European Central Bank will raise interest rates due to a slowing economy.

The euro also fell to a three-week low versus Japan's currency after ECB President Jean-Claude Trichet said economic growth will be "particularly weak" through the third quarter. The dollar headed for its biggest weekly gain against the yen in almost two months as oil dropped 18 percent from a record. The Australian dollar declined for a ninth day, the longest stretch since 1980, as futures show the central bank will cut borrowing costs this year.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAn Elliott Wave 3 Down Commences In The EUR/JPY
The EUR/JPY fell lower today on increasing risk aversion to Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, AIG, Fannie Mae, And Freddie Mac. It also fell lower with a massive sell off of the Chinese stocks.

Today's fall in the EUR/JPY has set in motion an Elliot Wave 3 Down in this currency pair, which will now cause disinvestment from stocks globally, not just from the BRICs, like it has been doing.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJack Crook writes: You can never actually know for sure what's going to happen on any given day, in any given market. And it's thinking you do know that can get you into real trouble.

'EURANIUM': The Weaponized Fiat Currency / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLike its metallic counterpart, the euro currency has the tendency to make other currencies it comes into contact with more like itself – radioactive. The inevitable result is the death of (natural) national currency systems.

The Nature of the Euro-Beast
The euro’s architects have recognized that the worldwide dollar-reserve system cannot be sustained. The reason: The US Fed’s dual – and conflicting - mandate of price-stability and full employment. The Fed was sold to Congress via the ‘hook’ that it would allow Congress to both control inflation and maximize employment if only Congress would agree to set up this version of a central bank in the US.

Central European Currencies Running Out of Steam / Currencies / Euro-Zone

By: Victoria_Marklew

The three major currencies of central Europe have appreciated strongly against the euro so far this year, boosted to varying degrees by rising interest rates, strong economic growth, and positive investor sentiment - the latter buoyed by the final confirmation that Slovakia will adopt the euro next January. However, there are some preliminary signs that the region's strong growth rates are about to slow. Interest rates may be at their peak in Poland and Hungary, and a rate cut may be in the cards in the Czech Republic. All of which suggests that the Polish zloty, Czech koruna, and Hungarian forint may also have peaked for now.

Crisis Currencies Poised to Surge as Frightened Capital Flows from Risk to Safety / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJack Crooks writes: On various occasions in the past couple months, my editorial has tried to bring to light some of the bright spots, or shall I say "relatively less dark spots", in the U.S. economy.

Ultimately, I've tried to connect it to the dollar and its potential to temporarily buck (pun intended) its long-term bearish trend. Sometimes I've had it right, for a little while anyway, and other times I've had it wrong, or at least the market told me I did.

Collapsing Fiat Currency In Need of a Golden Parachute with a Silver Lining / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMoney served throughout history as a medium of exchange and as a storehouse of value. But when gold and silver coins were replaced by paper currencies, money no longer was the same. Paper money, no longer having intrinsic value, now functions only as a medium of exchange, a function that degrades over time.

The value of paper money continually loses value because the constant printing of paper money constantly dilutes the value of previously printed money. The more paper money printed, the less paper money is worth; and today, money is being printed at a faster rate than at any time in history.

Fiat Faith Based Currencies / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

The Latin term "fiat" roughly translates to "there shall be". When we refer to fiat money, we are referring to money that exists because the government declares it into existence. It is not based on production or earnings, and not backed by any commodity. It is solely based on trusting the government. Fiat money is exchanged in the economy as long as there is faith in the government that issues it.
