Currency market review (weekly) after 13th January, 2012.


Last day EURO saw more drops; this is just because of rating threat and in contrary USD is gradually testing higher levels. USD and AUD are going up for 3 consecutive weeks. I think EURO is due to show more reactions of this downgrade.

China must be concentrating hard on their narrowing trade surplus for 3rd consecutive year and slowing growth in export for December, 11. Drop in Chinese foreign currency reserve in last quarter of 2011 was really big news and it becomes bigger if that hints that in future we are going to see more drops in Chinese YUAN. Now that can be a big concern for US dollar, because it is already losing some businesses (like Chinese & Japanese deal) as well as many other transactions in gulf countries and the biggest one will be, if EURO recovers.



Currency market forecast for coming week.

In coming days we may see a shift towards safe haven currencies, so USD as well as YEN and Swiss FRANC are the areas that need to look.

As I said in past that for EURO the lower support is 1.15, so now I want to say about the immediate ranges. 1.25–1.26 is a good support for it, next support is 1.22 and if it breaks that then it will go below 1.20. Though it is better that we should talk only about the supports for EURO but if it somehow manages to go up then it will find resistance at 1.32.
For AUD, I am still looking for up move though it is getting resistance at 1.04. The important level for AUD is 1.07-1.08. In the downside it may get support at 1.02 and then at 0.99. But as I said in past that unless it unless it goes below 96, I will be looking for 1.07.
USD is still testing 81.5 levels and in the last day it made a good figure, so it is expected that it may break this level in coming days. Macro things also support an up move for USD for now. If it drops, it may get support at 80.5.
YEN was very flat this week and I am still looking for 78 levels in the upside. In the downside it has good support at 76.
Last week I told that Brazilian REAL may take some more time to break 1.90 and right now it is taking support at 1.78. In the downside it has support at 1.74. South African RAND may break 8.40 in the upside and may test low up to 7.7 in the downside. In coming days these currencies may depreciate more.

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.
