Societe Generale - Long gold vs yen is a buy on this correction - somewhere....

Societé Generale - "The slightly longer term question is where to sell the yen if you're not short. We've written plenty of times about the air getting thinner about USD/JPY 100, and the air up there certainly smells less pleasant to the US Treasury. But I'm not sure that will prevent Japanese investors from hunting for yield in markets where they exist, confident in the knowledge that BOJ/MOF will fight currency strength. This however, just takes me to the longer term question, which is…

Gold Has Fallen Through The Floor!!!

The base of the past twenty months at 1522 is now gone.  The twelve year trend as described by the 175 week moving average at 1493 has been broken.  In addition the market has shot lower with a sustained momentum indicating this move is not a minor correction but a  new trend.  

My targets are 1312 and 1222.  Intra-day a  bounce towards 1480 should attract fresh selling.

Gold and Silver Outlook for April 15-19

The prices of gold and silver plummeted again during last week. Their decline didn’t seem to coincide with the developments in the forex markets but did coincide with the sharp fall of other commodities and equity markets.   The minutes of the recent FOMC meeting may have rekindled the speculations that…

TD Securities - EUR/USD gains still favoured but track higher may become choppy

TD Securities - "EUR/USD has largely conformed to expectations (last) week, with gains through the 1.3050 area prompting the retest of 1.3100/20 that we anticipated. From here though, things get a little trickier. There is just about enough evidence now to suggest that further gains in EUR/USD are more likely than renewed weakness in the near term. But the 1.3120 area that we identified as a key resistance zone remains intact (daily close basis) and there is a distinct lack of alignment on…

Wells Fargo - Monetary Base Effects: A Weaker Yen in the Coming Quarters

Wells Fargo - "With respect to the yen, the impressive monetary easing announced by the Bank of Japan this past week supports and perhaps enhances the prospects for a weaker ¥250 Japanese currency. The central bank’s announcement implies a pace of balance sheet expansion in excess of anything seen in Japan over the past two decades, and far in excess of the pace of the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet expansion. In addition, from a historical perspective, the trade weighted value of the yen…

EUR/USD – Limited Losses as US Numbers Continue to Falter

EUR/USD is lower as we begin the new trading week. The pair has dropped below the 1.31 line, and was trading in the mid-1.30 range in Monday’s European session. After a busy Friday, which saw more dismal US numbers, this week is starting off quietly. Eurozone Trade Balance posted a higher surplus, beating the estimate.  In the US, the markets will be keeping an eye on the Empire State…

Rabobank - USD/JPY resisting the rally

Rabobank - "The yen remains a safe haven currency. The tendency for the yen to strengthen in times of uncertainty is linked with Japan’s current account surplus. This has at times looked a little shaky since Japan’s 2011 earthquake and nuclear disaster given the necessarily of importing expensive fossil fuels. However, the government is aiming to re-start nuclear power and it could be years before Japan truly has to face the loss of its current account surplus. The implication is that it…

Deutsche Bank - EUR/USD the most difficult major pair to ascertain what it is trading off

Deutsche Bank - "EUR/USD is also in a technically corrective phase, and is the most difficult major pair to ascertain what it is trading off: risk or rates, buoyed by reserve recycling, or, buffered by EUR cross trades? The next level for EUR/USD shorts is near 1.3150, but this is a pair that is in search of a clearer rationale before positions will be put on in size. Lastly, negative views on commodities are much better played through commodities than commodity currencies that continue to…

BBH - The Aussie should find support in the $1.0440-60 band and this will allow it to challenge its 8-month cap near $1.06

Brown Brothers Harriman - "The Australian dollar reached almost $1.06 before the unwinding of cross positions against the yen took a toll (as it appears to have done on the other major currencies as well to varying degrees). Some observers linked the heavier tone of the Aussie before the weekend to the slide in steep slide in gold prices.

While possible, our work shows a very weak correlation between Australian dollar and gold. In fact, on a rolling-60 day basis, using percentage change,…

EURUSD Could Touch 1.2950 before Going Higher Again

EURUSD rallied more than 400pips over the last two weeks, but gains slowed down last week around 1.3130 swing established back from March. Notice that volume and momentum were decreasing in the last week despite higher EUR. Thats called a divergence which usually suggests a top or coming sideways prices. Ideally, market will make a deeper corrective pull-back in the very near-term within wave B) towards 1.2900/1.2950 support zone before pair turns higher once again for wave C).…
