British Currency Ready for a Pounding! / Currencies / British Pound

By: Money_and_Markets

Throughout the year, we've told you why the U.S. dollar was weakening. The reasons are many, and most of them are still relevant.

But as 2007 winds down, I want to tell you what could be next year's biggest trend: Some other currencies feeling similar pressures. You see, the credit crunch is expanding, and so is the list of vulnerable parties.

British Pound Plunges on Record Trade Deficit / Currencies / British Pound

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Sterling already reeling from the credit crunch hitting the financial sector hard, tumbled again today on news of the biggest trade deficit since the aftermath of Nigel Lawson's late 1980's boom which was followed by early 1990's bust. The trade deficit soared to £20billions for the third quarter, in large part the credit crunch is to blame as investment income flows out of the worlds financial centre in London, whereas usually the case is for a healthy surplus. The deficit as a proportion of GDP amounts to 5.7%, and is way ahead of city estimates of 3%.

US Dollar Rally to Terminate Under Weight of Inflation / Currencies / US Dollar

By: David_Petch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOld man winter definitely arrived last night (for the second time this year, dumping around 6 inches of snow on the Peg. Each snowflake by itself is nothing in weight, but collectively represent a significant amount of weight that can pack down and form glaciers that may not move mountains, but definitely carve a path. Think of each USD as a snowflake, which by itself is nothing. Collectively though, the trillions of USD similar to the snowflakes blanketing a city are instead blanketing the globe. This creates a real slippery situation that causes accidents left and right, even for those that are conservative drivers. Snowploughs (AKA Central Bankers) can clean up and move the snow, but it merely is removed. Allow for a strong wind and the snowflakes are blown all over the place, creating huge drifts in areas where there once was nothing.

US Dollar Bounce May be Temporary as Global Credit Markets Remain Frozen / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Axel_Merk

As pundits on Wall Street want to hop on the next trade, they pronounce the U.S. dollar is due for a bounce. In favor of a bounce speaks that popular media cover the dollar's demise; and the Economist shows a burning dollar bill on its cover page while discussing the “panic” out of the dollar. While short-term currency moves are notoriously difficult to predict, it is rather worrisome that contrarian indicators pose the best arguments for better fortunes for the greenback. We also beg to differ with the Economist: there is no panic out of the dollar, at least not yet.

U.S. Assets Getting Devalued as US Dollar Falls! What to do... / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry Edelson writes: The subprime mortgage crisis and real estate implosion in America have created a debt debacle. Consumers and corporations are in debt up to their eyeballs. And the national debt is increasing at a rate of more than $7.4 billion per day !

As a result, the Fed has been forced to crank up the printing presses to flood the economy with paper money in an attempt to inflate away the debt and keep it from crushing the economy.

Unwinding of Carry Trade Sees Rising Yen and Falling Stock Markets / Currencies / Yen Carry Trade

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Yen rises across the board as risk appetite takes a fresh hit following the latest evidence of the sub-prime mortgage spillover on the market and broader economy. JP Morgan Chase's downgraded the earnings of four of its competitors on the basis of lower higher write downs and lower M&A revenue. Meanwhile, downgraded and defaulted debt has reached towards state-run pension pools in Connecticut , Montana and Florida , with the latter owning more than $1 billion of downgraded paper.

World Abandoning the US Dollar as International Currency For Trade / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

The foreign exchange markets are not solely about exchange rates. They are about values, smooth flowing of international trade, about trust and reliability. The sight of the $ falling over a long period of time, with bounces and recoveries that don't change the downward trend is far more than simply a drop in value!

Falling US Dollar to Boost US Stock Markets and Consumer Spending / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleImagine that you have $2.8 trillion sitting around. And for kicks, let's assume that most of that money, about two-thirds, is invested in U.S. dollars and other dollar-denominated assets like U.S. Treasury bonds.

And let's assume that your currency was linked to the U.S. dollar, too. In other words, you often buy dollars to maintain a stable value relative to the buck.

Weak US Dollar Looks Set to Lose Role as the Worlds Reserve Currency / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Adrian_Ash

Goldfinger? Bofinger! "...Once the Dollar loses its role as the supreme reserve currency, just what other uses might it be put to exactly – wall-papering the inside of central bank vaults? Rolled up for use in the People's Bank restrooms...?"

As internal debates in the Gulf and Asian nations intensify over the need to continue propping up the U.S. economy, dangerous signals this past week from the Fed, Freddie Mac, and Wall Street may be pushing them to finally let go of the lifelines that have kept America afloat.

US Dollar Loses the Currency War - Gold Readies For Next Move Higher on Inflation / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe competing currency wars are beginning to escalate. Since 2002 the battles have certainly shown signs of economic damage. But they are really heating up. The winners are difficult to define. The losers are all nations involved. The important viewpoint is to identify which nations and economies will lose relatively less, and how they manage the warfare so as to gain an advantage over rival nations. The losers are clear. They are the United States and all nations which hang on with their tight US$ peg for political reasons. It is difficult to identify China (plus Hong Kong ) and Arab oil exporters as uniform winners when their economies are suffering some blatant distortions of their own.

US Dollar Devaluation is a Supply and Demand Problem / Currencies / US Dollar

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDollar falls to all-time low against the Euro"
"Canadian dollar hits all-time high versus US counterpart"
"Australian dollar at multi-year high"
"British Pound crosses $2 threshold"

These are just some of the headlines that have emerged during the past year concerning the ails of the US Dollar. There have been hundreds, perhaps thousands of explanations for why this is a good or bad thing. Thousands more questions asked, but never answered. At the end of the day though, it is really about our old friend: The law of Supply and Demand.

Currency Cross Signals - Unwinding of Yen Carry Trades Leads to Temporary Dollar Rally Against Long-term Devaluation / Currencies / Yen Carry Trade

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the last several weeks, tremendous movement and change has occurred in foreign currencies. Almost all foreign currencies have made multi-year highs against the crippled US Dollar. The United States suffers from wretched finances and a banking system teetering on seizures. In progress is the gradual dismantling of large tinkertoy structures within its vast network of bond risk management. Its entire business of structured finance is under siege and revaluation.

The banking & bond woes cannot be blamed on just the subprime mortgages, those mispriced collections of slime used in considerable export to those very friendly parties who supply the necessary $2.1 billion in daily US capital. No, the USDollar can be identified as a ‘subprime currency' slowly enduring recognition as such. The buck is badly mispriced, offering a yield under half of the true price inflation rate of 10.4%, falsely rated as ‘AAA' under coercion, supported by broad statistical lies, exported widely to foreign institutions, and wrecking havoc in economies who peg their currencies to the US$. How shallow can any denial be?

Pound Sterling Plunges Against the Yen / Currencies / British Pound

By: Regent_Markets

For once it wasn't just the Dollar that took a beating last Friday as the British pound fell sharply against the Yen, Euro, Swiss Franc and even the Greenback itself. The fall was all the more telling given the general mauling the dollar took last week against a whole host of currencies. Before Friday's pullback the Dollar hit a 26 year low against Sterling.

Bernanke Squirms As the US Dollar Burns / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Brady_Willett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBernanke's larger than expected 50 bps cut on September 18 helped spark a sell off in the U.S. dollar. A deteriorating outlook for the U.S. economy and another Fed rate cut on October 31 accelerated the dollar's decline.  Fear has taken over in November…

It is not surprising that against this backdrop talk about how wonderful a weaker dollar is for America has nearly vanished. As a quick example, head of currency research at Morgan Stanley, Stephen Jen, was claiming a few weeks ago that although the dollar may weaken further, “…investors should keep in mind that the dollar is undervalued and ready to appreciate as soon as the economy regains traction.” The most recent sell off in the dollar now has Mr. Jen rattled, not to mention many others:

The implications for the currency markets are huge. Most importantly, this development propelled the yen much higher, and I expect the momentum to continue building. Here's the scoop ...
