  • Today's Forex Market: Celtic (Paper) Tiger? [View article]
    I agree Eugenia-

    But even taking all of that into consideration, the Dollar STILL looks worse! These issues will come home to roost at some point, but right now the US Fed is trying desperately to keep the pump open so that when it finally has to remove the punch bowl, we have much further to go.

    Dire times indeed!

  • Nothing Fazes These Markets [View article]
    Push stocks higher so that they have a higher place to fall from. I think Bernanke is still very afraid of banks balance sheets and the next beating they are going to take in the housing market when rates eventually rise.

  • World Leaders in Denial Over Harmful Policies, Risk Aversion Abounds in Forex Market [View article]
    Hi Flash- thanks for your comments. I think your objection about the use of the word "leaders" needs to be taken up with my SA editors!

    Clearly that was not the title I chose.

    Pleb: I like precious metals too... but physical currency isn't practical.

  • Anticipating an Irish Relief Rally [View article]
    Good commentary, Mark. The Irish tax issue has been one that has been overlooked by the MSM. The fact that many German re-insurers have domiciled there helped push Merkel to attempt to do an end around to encroach on Irish sovereignty, while at the same time helping the Euro combat the the effects of QE2.

  • Whig Wednesday: Republican House Party, And QE Too [View article]
    Thank you Cinncy. Libtards are famous for their inability to detect sarcasm, and I think Mr. Davis' ability to identify a problem so succinctly yet diagnose its cause so wrongly shows that he couldn't possibly believe what he writes, but rather prefers to let the plebes battle it out in the comments section.

  • Whig Wednesday: Republican House Party, And QE Too [View article]
    Oil to $85??? Blame those darn Republicans because it is their *possible* return to fiscal austerity that is causing Bernanke to launch QE2 to continue the ponzi economy.

    If they would just go away and allow "DROP" (Dodd, Reid, Obama, Pelosi) to spend our money for us, QE2 wouldn't even be necessary.

  • Jobless Claims and the Dollar [View article]
    The problem with the Fed's dual mandate is that monetary policy alone cannot create jobs. Sound fiscal policy as well as a business-friendly environment are more important than just cheap money, and right now we have neither.

    So the Fed is trying to create demand by scaring the crap out of everyone that massive inflation is coming so they better consume today!

    I'd prefer to ride out the stupidity and save my declining in value Dollars for the hidden tax that inflation represents to afford to buy food and energy and pay for my "fair share" of the massive tax bill coming down the pike as more and more people hit the public dole as they won't be able to afford the necessities thanks to Bernankes inflation.

  • A Japanese Conundrum [View article]
    All true Cliff. Perhaps the unemployed find jobs with companies that are expanding due to an increase in domestic demand?

    Bond bubbles are happening everywhere and JGBs are no different. Maybe the same investors who invest in the US garbage paper would like to diversify into a different blend of garbage?

  • A Japanese Conundrum [View article]
    I agree with you Michael re: rate increases, but that's not gonna happen if they continue to have deflation. Raising rates in this current economic environment will have little affect.

    All that will do is encourage further savings... and thus the downward spiral continues.

    I have read the Divine Comedy.... perhaps policy makers should as well.

  • Currencies: Race to the Bottom, 2.0 [View article]
    Hi Brandon- I agree with you that the Japanese do not want a stronger Yen for all of the reasons you listed. However, global risk themes may be too much for them to handle. While intervention is possible, they may be reluctant after what happened to the Swiss national bank and the losses they incurred trying to keep the franc weak vs. the Euro. Incidentally, look at CHF now, it has already been seeing safe haven money flows and is near multi-year highs.

    I think it depends on what type of trader you are to determine when to sell Yen. If you have a longer-term time horizon and can withstand a bit of risk, then selling Yen at these levels may be appropriate.

    However, if the global economy continues to get worse and not better, the Japan policy makers may be fighting an uphill battle.
