OIL  (jan)


GOLD (jan)
















China  is going to raise its inflation target for 2011 to 4% from 3% now, it is also likely to set target $1.1 trillion of new loans for  2011, 8% economic growth, 16% increase in money supply. Despite increasing inflation PBOC is not  raising its  rate because they are anticipating asset bubbles. China again increasing it’s holding of  U.S. treasury.

In spite of strong Yen, Japanese  Tanken main index was good in past but in December it has fallen. It reflects the view of large manufacturers in Japan. 
In coming days if oil breaks 84.50 level then it can go further down,  on the up side if it able to close above  89.50 level  for few days then we can see an up move  from there. Right now its immediate target looks to me, that is beating  88.50 on the up side.

Gold is still making the pattern  but  it looks to me that it may go up  because the liquidity in the market is increasing.

Market in coming week
Dow has the scope of going upward but technical indicators showing that it is over bought, same with FTSE as it is unable to close above 5900. In coming month 3950 is the level for CAC  that need to be look in. Still there is no correction in T-SEC as it is going upward NIKKEI  showing no sign of correction it is  moving in respect of strong GDP  and YEN depreciation against EURO. Brazil’s IBOVESPA is looking close to find it’s short-term support. Shanghai composite may test it’s low of 2800 level, but among the Asian big indexes it is looking little less overbought along with India.

India’s WPI fell in November so chance of rate increase is less now. Chinese premier’s visit of India and $20 billion business deal may be good for relation between this two countries but India is really worried about the trade deficit with china and it is pushing china to open it’s market for Indian IT, Pharma and agri products.
10 years U.S. treasury yield which was increasing in early periods of this week is again starts to decline and the USD which may again go up in coming week, these things along with European economic issue, China rate cut and Korean tension may effect the trading in coming week. There are also many reports  those are due in coming week such as existing & new home sales, unemployment claims, consumer spending  e.t.c.

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.
