Slogan of the world , “ Depreciate your own currency ”.

In spite of issuing toooooo much bonds, USD is rallying, now this can be due to many causes, let consider where these investments will go if not in here ? 
 In Europe?  As we all know what is the debt situations in Europe, it was Greece, now it is Ireland & who can say next is  Portugal  or Spain  or  U.K. !   So are you going to invest  in these countries  where their bonds spread are rising  & their currency is suffering or will going to suffer ?   No,  not at all  ?
So where these investments will go?  Certainly they cannot go in Japan better to say deflationary Japan.

They can come in Emerging markets but  right now emerging markets are still too expensive despite all these corrections those are going  on now. So these investments  are choosing US bond market ( read as  US T  bonds ). Other way we can say that it will be a little bit secure if suddenly market crashes.
Though there are some exceptions -   Russia & china are going to do bilateral trade in local currency rather than US$ and not only that  Chinese yuan will going to trade in Russian market. This is an important news that is going to effect the currency market in future.

To prevent their currency appreciation & there by to protect their export, Brazil in last month raised tax on foreign investment in fixed-income securities. This and other causes are making some funds to shift their destination from Latin America to Asia .For example Pine Bridge Investments Japan co.  said their $1.9 billion bond fund will start their investment in India in next year as when it is expected that nation’s currency will appreciate. One thing to remember here that India’s 10-year bond’s yield are 7 times higher than similar Japanese debt.
South Korea also adds a 14% tax to foreign earnings on its govt bonds to control the currency volatility.
Looking at the world scenarios  it looks like in future every country will try to depreciate their currency to protect their export. Every country is going to put money into  its own pocket, it doesn’t matter whether they are under any umbrella  or not. Even if they are under any umbrella they will formulate things in such a way that it is ultimately going to make them gainer.
Today if you need to make market down, you just have to spell it. Because there are lot of things or diversifications among these elements that whenever & whatever you want you can choose. It’s a group that is working quite hard on these matters !!!!

DAX forecast for coming week ended 15th March, 2013.

This week was very good for Dax, though it is getting resistance at 8100 range. Now it has a chance to test downside again. I think even if Dax tests lower levels, it has more chance to bounce back from around 7800 range and therefore it will again test upside.

On the other hand if it shows flat movements around 8000 range in initial days of the coming week then there is a chance that it may take a decisive call in later days. Considering the recent trends it has the chance to test higher levels may be around 8200 but that will be a very aggressive call after taking in to account the movement from last December. I will worry about the downside when Dax will be testing levels below 7600 ranges.

Fed’s rate hike Vs Sovereign rating up gradation

Financial market is very much worried about the rate hike in US, probably this is going to come in coming December. But I think that is not going to change much of the things. Even Fed hikes rate in December it will be not so much, because we are forgetting one thing that interest rate in US is around zero so even they hike rate by 0.25-50% basis points (at most) in this year that will not be enough cause for Dollars to change their locations around the world especially markets have already discounted this coming rate hike in US.

A new disaster is coming in EU banking sector, whom to blame, big Audit firms!

First I was thinking what should be the title of this posting? Will it be good if I write that big audit firms set the time for EU bank collapse! If someone is thinking that financial crisis is over then think twice because the coming EU banking crisis is no way less than 2008 financial crisis. The time bomb will explode at some point of time in future, the time has not yet set for it. In that tsunami, forget about the smaller if any major banks collapse then I will not be surprise.
