Weekly Currency market review after 7th October, 2011.


Whenever uncertainties are coming in world financial markets, investors are shifting towards more secured currencies than others, like EURO. As we can see during the beginning and end day of the week there were some bad things in Euro-are and that clearly reflects on the value of EURO.

Many of the Asian Central Banks sold dollars to support their local currencies. Most of the Asian currencies advanced this week, look like they are going to quickly cover the lost ground. Somewhere I was reading that Brazilian exporters are selling dollar anticipating future gain. AUD was effected by the decision of  their Central Bank to left interest rate unchanged and gave some signal that they may reduce it as inflation is easing.



Currency Market forecast for coming week

 

During last few week REAL, PESO & South African RAND were showing same type of movements, currencies of these Emerging nations are following same trend.

Now it is sure that EURO is following the lower high and lower low pattern, which I talked during few weeks. From here if it breaks 1.368 level, it will negate the pattern. 1.36 is a good resistance area for EURO. On the other side there is a chance that it may go below 1.32 level if it follows the pattern.
Last week, I was expecting that AUD will again re-test 0.96. Actually it made a good base here in past. Looking at the last day’s figure, I think it may again test lower levels. Now it is getting resistance at 0.99 area. If it manages to break this, then it may test level up to 1.03 area.
USD broke the 78.50 level but as I said in last week it’s moves were not much except that one day. Now 79.5 will act as a new target for it. If it breaks that convincingly then it can go in higher levels and situation permits that in this moment.
For Swiss FRANC around 0.94 will act as a good resistance, if it breaks that then it can go in higher levels. It’s ultimate resistance is at 0.96 area.  On the downside it has support at 0.90 level.
YEN was flat this week, 77 is acting as a good resistance for it. YEN’s ultimate target is 81 in the upside. I think if Japanese authority takes some steps then it can easily break 77.8 level which I talked in last week. On the downside it’s support is at 76 level.
Brazilian REAL failed to break 1.90 area, now it may test level up to 1.70. It may take some time to test that 1.90 level in the upside. Same thing also goes true for Mexican PESO, as it couldn’t break 14 level now it may test 12.8 level in the downside. For South African RAND, it may test 7.4 level in the downside. It may take time to test 8.50 level.

These downgrades may complicate matters beyond Greece to other problematic countries and that in-turn may effect EURO. Demand for dollar may increase after that rate cut by Fitch ratings and I think in coming days whenever investor will get a cheaper dollar they are going to take long position in it.

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.
