Weekly Currency market review after 21st October, 2011.



Euro dropped against the Swiss FRANC  and YEN as tension rises in Euro-area. Not only major currencies but also currencies of the Asian countries are in important levels. Most of the currencies were flat during the week, except the moves in last day of the week.

I can understand the reason behind the movement of Swiss FRANC but I don’t understand why Japanese authorities are not taking any step to control their currency. Somewhere I was reading that they may encourage domestic companies in foreign take over, look like they are considering different options. Now it will be a matter to see the extra funding of that 3rd budget that government is going to submit in coming Friday. Whatever they want to do, they need to be fast, before companies shift into other countries.



Currency Market forecast for coming week

I don’t think market is going to get any thing clearly until coming Wednesday, so up to that time investments can shift towards Swiss FRANC and YEN.

This week EURO’s move was flat against the dollar, in the low side it tested 1.36 area as I said in last day. It closed far below 1.40 area, which is a good resistance for it. Last two days moves were good and if things go this way then it can test level above 1.39, where it is getting resistance right now. Coming meetings are very crucial for it, which are going to decide the fate of it’s future. If things become worse it can test 1.34 support level.
Last day I was telling that to test 1.06 level AUD needs to break 1.02-1.04 level first, this week it was trying to break that level. Last day’s move was better. It has a support around 0.99 area, if things become problematic then it can test lower levels.
76 is a good support area for USD, if it breaks that then it can drop more. On the upside it’s target is 79.5 level.
Swiss FRANC is getting support around 0.88, last day’s move was bad. Now it will try to move according to the news from Euro-zone, overall trend is down. YEN’s move in the last day surprise me, probably tension about monetary easing in US is the reason behind this move.
Brazilian REAL tried to test 1.80 level but overall it was flat. So 1.80 level is still a resistance for it and in the downside it has support at 1.70 level.
Mexican PESO broke a crucial 13.50 level but it is getting resistance at 13.70 level, but as I said in last week it is in better condition than REAL. Same thing is true for South African RAND, for it level of resistance is at 8.20.

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.
