Currency market review (weekly) after 16th March, 2012.

EURO is out of the Greece problem for now but still it is in uncertain zone. What will be the situation if a country like Portugal demands a same type of write downs in their debt too! I think it may become one of the biggest problems in coming future.

In last two days of the week USD reacted on CPI and consumer confidence data. Different reports from Australian showed the market expectation of a rate cut; I think many investors are frustrated with AUD. Most of the Asian currencies drop this week due to demand for US dollar and also for Chinese report. This week SNB maintained its 1.20 franc per EURO rate.

Currency market forecast for coming week.

Let talk about different currencies for coming week.

As time is going AUD makes things hard for it to trigger the medium term bullish pattern. It got the support of 1.04 level, last two day’s figures were better. I think AUD’s move in coming days will decide whether it is going to cross 1.08 or not. This 1.04–1.08 becomes an important level for it. If it somehow breaks 1.04 then it can test 1.01 level.

USD (USD's forecast for coming week ended 16th March, 2012.)


I was expecting that Japanese YEN may test 85 level but it failed to do that in this week. Technical indicators are still not showing too much overbought position for it; few days corrections are making it more comfortable position to test 85 level. So in spite of being in over-bought position I think that YEN may test 85 level in coming days, but if it somehow reverses, then it will get initial support at around 81 range.

Swiss FRANC just followed my words in last week. So still it is following lower highs and lower lows pattern. If it breaks 0.895 in coming days then it is going to again confirm that. But before that 0.91 is initial support level for it; if FRANC bounces from there then it may break 0.93 level in coming days.
Brazilian REAL is trying to break 1.80, as technical indicators are saying that it can easily break this level in coming days. If it breaks 1.80 then it will try to test 1.86 level in coming days. In the downside 1.70 is a good support for it.
South African RAND again tried 7.8, as I said in my last week review. What I think that it is making a channel, if this is true then it is not going to break 7.5 in coming days. Therefore it has more chance to go in the upside. In the downside if it breaks 7.40 then it can drop 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.
