Should You be Worried About the Rising U.S. Dollar? / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Troy_Bombardia

The U.S. Dollar Index has been going up over the past 5 months, driven higher by Trump’s trade war.

This has some stock market traders worried, because economic theory states that “a rising U.S. Dollar is bad for the economy and stock market”.

Will the Indonesian Rupiah Heading Towards the 16,500 level? / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: Sam_Chee_Kong

As of late, Emerging Markets have been garnering much attention. Unfortunately it was for the wrong reason. Emerging Market currencies like the Turkish Lira, Argentinian Pesos and the South African Rand have been almost in free fall mode.

What is the narrative behind this?

It all started right after the Global Financial Crisis in 2008. Needless to say recent financial crisis such as the Asian Financial Crisis in 1998 and the Global Financial Crisis originated from having too much money in the economy. As in the Asian Financial Crisis there were just too much easy money going around in the economy. Banks have been lending out money to unqualified borrowers which in turn used the money to speculate in the housing and stock markets. This eventually pushes up asset prices way beyond their fundamental values. Hence, bubbles are created and the authorities are slow in tackling the problem. They only acted when the crisis is almost out of control. Sounds familiar to the causes of the Global Financial Crisis and the current Emerging Market Crisis?

Market Participants Betting on Nafta Deal between US and Canada / Currencies / Canadian $

By: ElliottWave-Forecast

The Canadian Dollar strengthened to a two month high against US Dollar earlier this week. Market participants seem to bet on possible inclusion of Canada in a new Nafta pact. The U.S. has just concluded a successful bilateral talk with Mexico on Monday. Under the new agreement, cars need to have 75% of their content originate in the U.S and Mexico. The current Nafta requires 62.5% originate within North America. Under the new deal, 40-45% of auto content need to be made by workers who make more than $16 per hour, favoring the U.S. and Canada.

What's So "Cryptic" About Trading Cryptocurrencies? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: EWI

Lots and lots. Trading is not easy, period. But a few things can help.

Here's a cool parlor trick: If you want to bring a loud, rowdy room to a screeching silence, ask if anyone can explain how cryptocurrencies work.

Cue crickets chirping.

Turns out, the "crypto" part of the name originally signified the encrypted nature of digital assets and their anonymous owners. But it's proven foretelling, as cryptocurrencies have become synonymous with a cryptic impenetrability the likes of which no modern mainstream financial market -- especially not one so fervently embraced -- has known.

The PetroDollar Matrix / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Andy_Sutton

At the forefront of the media’s attention today is Russia. We’re not really sure why, (well, of course we are) but it seems that Russia has become the new boogeyman. Everything is Russia’s fault. I’ve even heard rumors that the National Weather Service has plans to blame Russia for all the confounded rain in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic this summer. We know – right away you’re thinking this is going to be about Russia but it’s really not. It’s about what the media isn’t telling you. It’s why (we believe), Trump’s Tweets, Ivanka’s Sweets, Russiagate, the left’s hate, the right’s hate (aka, establishment theatre) are all taking the headlines while a very disturbing trend is left in plain sight. It’s the 800-pound gorilla in the room during any discussion involving economics and geopolitics, but nobody wants to talk about it.

USD/JPY Forex Trend Forecast / Currencies / Japanese Yen

By: Austin_Galt

Pattern – I believe a top is in place at 113.21 and a new downtrend has begun with price in the process of putting in a lower high. While it is possible that the first lower high is already in place, it is my belief that is not the case and a 5 point broadening low formation is in play with price currently on its way up to a point 4 high which will be the lower high. Considering the likely point 5 low is much lower, I am essentially viewing this formation as just a continuation pattern. The point 2 highs is at 112.50 and price turning back down at that lower would set up a bearish lower double top and that is certainly a very valid possibility.

US Dollar Rumbling Below the Surface / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Today is all about Fed Chair Powell's Jackson Hole Speech at 10 am Eastern, but from a market perspective, we might want to keep a close watch on the reaction of the USD to what Powell says or does not say.

Why? Yesterday's strength in the Dollar has reversed overnight into this morning's pre-market session.

In a post to members at 15:30 yesterday, I posited the following about the USD: "The $64,000 question about Gold and the Gold Miners depends on the direction of the USD: Was the recent decline in DXY the start of a period of weakness or a completed correction?"

Fiat Currency Inflation, And Collapse Insurance / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Raymond_Matison

FIAT CURRENCY INFLATION,  AND COLLAPSE  INSURANCE

Insurance against fiat currency

Billions of people covering a vast land mass around the globe do not have insurance of any sort.  Why?  It is because they own few assets.  No house, no car, just a hovel with no electricity or water at the foothills of some nondescript mountain.  By contrast, those who live in advanced economies have assets worthwhile protecting against loss.  Thus, we in America have homeowners insurance to protect against the loss of our dwelling, auto insurance to protect against the involuntary conversion of our movement conveyance into scrap metal, and to protect our financial assets against a lawsuit which could strip us of our savings and investment assets in the face of our fault in an automobile accident.  Further, we protect our family’s income and savings by purchasing life or disability insurance.  We buy insurance because we do have assets, and believe it worthwhile to protect those assets against unforeseeable loss, when the cost of that insurance is affordable.

Why is it then, that we do not protect our assets against the major foreseeable and persistent source of asset loss – that of loss in the value of our currency.  Should we not have protection against inflation and the resulting loss of value or purchasing power in our fiat currency represented in our pension funds, stock or bond funds, or savings and money market account assets?  We know and acknowledge that inflation robs us of our savings each and every year.  Since 1971, even using the contrived statistics used in calculating the Consumers Price Index, the value of a 1971 collar is just worth $0.16 today.  That is a very significant loss in value over a relatively short period of time.

How Will Ethereum Scale? / Currencies / BlockChain

By: David_Milsont

Like most public blockchain technologies, Ethereum works to support as many users as possible. The only problem, nowadays, is that the limits of the platform are still being explored. As there is a hardcoded limit on per block computation, the Ethereum blockchain supports around 15 transactions in one second. Developers and academics continue to discuss how blockchain and ethereum systems are being scaled. While Ethereum developers can highlight how this flexible platform differs from bitcoin, there is no consensus yet regarding scalability.

Where to Trade Cryptocurrencies? / Currencies / BlockChain

By: David_Milsont

Cryptocurrency stories find themselves headlining the global news on a regular basis. This news usually consists of general crypto news, whether (and when) Bitcoin will be accepted as fiat money, the release of new coins, and the up and down Bitcoin price movements.

Kim Dotcom, a maverick German-Finish Internet entrepreneur, echoed this sentiment in the following quotation: “Bitcoin is a very exciting development, it might lead to a world currency. I think over the next decade it will grow to become one of the most important ways to pay for things and transfer assets.”

Bitcoin: Landing Gear Engaged. Bottom Is Still a Process / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Ryan_Wilday

If you have tracked me at all since January, I had stated that if bitcoin (BTC-USD) is in a wave iv of the degree that I believed, support for this corrective wave, that started in January is in the $3000-$4700 zone. $4700 is an ideal landing spot for this wave iv as it is the .382 retrace of the third wave that began in July 2016.

Further, if you tracked my writing, I saw many setups that can bring us to that level, and likewise many bullish setups that could have taken us out of this long correction prematurely. All failed.

Venezuela's Great Bolivar Scam, Nothing but a Face Lift / Currencies / HyperInflation

By: Steve_H_Hanke

In the days leading up to Venezuela’s currency reform, which is set for August 20th, the bolivar has taken yet another deep dive.  The chart below shows the bolivar’s free fall and the massive gap between the official exchange rate of 248,521 VEF/USD and the black-market (read: free-market) exchange rate of 6,670,079 VEF/USD.  That gap results in a whopping black market premium of 2,584%.  It also produces huge profits for Maduro’s cronies who have access to the official rate.  They can purchase greenbacks for peanuts and sell them on the black market for an instantaneous profit of 2,584%.
