In Today’s Currency Currents….
FX Trading – Fed Wednesday. It might be interesting.
“Credit expansion is the governments’ foremost tool in their struggle against the market economy. In their hands it is the magic wand designed to conjure away the scarcity of capital goods, to lower the rate of interest or to abolish it altogether, to finance lavish government spending, to expropriate the capitalists, to contrive everlasting booms, and to make everybody prosperous. The final outcome of the credit expansion is general impoverishment.” – Ludwig von Mises
FX Trading – Fed Wednesday. It might be interesting.
Quiet so far this morning in front of the Federal Reserve Bank’s pronouncement on all things monetary due out later this afternoon. We wait to hear how Mr. Bernanke & Co. will decide to save us from ourselves yet again.
One of the questions on the minds of traders everywhere might be: When will Mr. B and Co. decide it’s time to start removing some of the hooch from the punch bowl? We are not sure we will get an answer today, but maybe the Fat Lady of the Fed is warming up. Yesterday, we saw a story indicating as such:
“The Federal Reserve has started talks with bond dealers about withdrawing the unprecedented amount of cash injected into the system the last two years, according to people with knowledge of the discussions,” Bloomberg News reported yesterday.
Of course, as you read further on in the story, the same people with “knowledge of the discussions” say there are no plans to do this anytime soon. I guess the Fed is just getting a brush up from dealers about the arcane process known as reverse purchase agreements—a process used to drain reserves from the system. Heck, the Fed hasn’t drained reserves for so darn long it likely has forgotten how to do it.
Even if Mr. B wants to drain some reserves from the system, most of which are simply sitting un-loaned on banks’ balance sheets anyway, we wonder if Barney Frank will allow it?
But, should the Fed provide some inclination that it’s actually getting ready to act, it might throw some cold water on the idea the dollar is now the carry trade currency of choice, thanks to super low short-term interest rates and US Treasury benign neglect of the dollar. We think there is a lot more to a carry trade currency that meets the eye than just low rates, but we save that view for later today.
We all know there is a wall of momentum, spurred by excess dollar reserves, booting up asset markets here and abroad (whether a bubble or not depends ultimately on a revival of global demand or not). And we all know the “Stimulator of Last Resort’ (US government) is big on the wealth effect i.e. juicing asset markets to try to juice consumer confidence to try to juice global demand, so they seem quite happy with stocks going up.
So if the Fed doesn’t do something to suggests if might mop up something soon, it may be taken as green lighting the seeming US government implicit weak dollar policy as a tool that will continue as long as said dollar falls in an “orderly” matter—bada-bing- bada-boom.
Net, net, this post meeting commentary might actually be interesting.

Here’s some explanation on the different newsletters you’ll receive …
Our Emerging Market newsletter is geared towards specific emerging market commentary and takes time to evaluate individual countries and themes in depth. We will also recommend a balanced portfolio of currencies to hold as an emerging currency speculator.
In our Currency Options newsletter we are technical-minded, active, and a bit medium-term oriented … occasionally diverging from our longer-term fundamental market views. In addition to that, we incorporate a strict stop-loss guideline in our recommendations, usually around a 50-60% loss threshold, as well as a level at which to take partial profits. We believe this helps reduce the downside and allows for you to be more proactive in grabbing gains when you have them.
In the Forex & Currency Futures newsletter we are active and base most of our trade analysis on short-term technical setups — shooting to grab small open gains when we have them and keeping a skin in the game if we are fortunate to have latched on to a trend. That means you will consistently see recommendations to trade with at least two lots at a time. But remember: the size you trade and amount of leverage must make sense for your own account size and circumstances.
Within the monthly newsletter — Currency Investor — will reside the longer-term trend analysis work and thematic fundamental views incorporating a detailed look at weekly and monthly inter-market relationships between currencies, stocks, bonds and commodities.
Everything you read about above plus access to archives, webinar notifications, audio updates, special reports and more.
We work hard to consistently deliver, what we consider, the best currency trading newsletters available on the market today. We hope you’ll agree.

Preparing for a Breakup in the European Monetary System
Most people are worried about the US dollar … and for good reason. These same people tend to see the euro as a real competitor vying for world reserve currency status. Many have been conditioned that way by the financial press. But we believe the risk of breakup in the European Monetary System is building rapidly. We examine the structure of this “artificial fiat currency” and why another downturn in the global economy could mean lights out for the euro. Be prepared.
Even if you decide to cancel, keep the report – it’s yours as a ‘thank you’ for giving us a try!
Even in tough times, which we recognize is on everyone’s mind these days, that’s a very reasonable price for the versatility and money-making potential packed into these newsletters. Of course, at a little over $3 per day you could instead put that money towards you’re morning cup of coffee on the way to work, I guess.
If you want to learn how to implement a solid approach to currency investing … or even if you’re just looking for well-researched trading and investing ideas …
