  • Dollar continues to slide...

    * Dollar continues to slide... * Housing bailout passes congress... * Chinese Renmibi falls... * Aussie dollar peaked?... ** Dollar continues to slide... Good day... And welcome to the last week of July. I spent the past week fishing with my son and father in law up in Manitoba, Canada. We had some great weather, and caught an absolute ton of Walleye and Pike. My son caught a Pike almost as long as he is tall. Just a great guys trip; but enough about my time off, I'm back at work now, so lets get to the currency markets. The dollar continued to slide throughout Friday's trading as concern of further US credit losses trumped some negative data released in Europe. The dollar dropped for a second day against the Euro after a story in the Financial Times quoted Gary Stern, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, saying the credit crunch will worsen. Nothing new here, but as Chuck stated in Friday's Pfennig, currency traders continue to play the game of "Who's Data is Worse" with the US economic data coming in even worse than the rest of the world....
  • More Awful Housing Data!

    * Existing Home Sales fall... * Foreclosures spike! * Euro rebounds... * Aussie dollar sees some weakness... ** More Awful Housing Data! Good day... And a Happy Friday to one and all! Well... The touch of food poisoning I got ( I think) stayed with me most of the day yesterday. I did make it to my presentation with Addison Wiggin, but you should have seen me... I was a mess... But I got through it, stayed at the booth for an hour to talk to people and then headed back to the room to basically fall asleep until now... UGH! I have to say that I believe this conference to be the absolute best conference I have ever attended, and believe me, I've attended quite a few conferences in my time! We have talked to so many people that are genuinely interested, some that already completed their applications, and then there were the 100's of people that are already customers, wanting to know more! It has been a great conference!...
  • Aussie Job Creation Soars!

    * A$ goes to 96-cents! * Foreclosures at 53% * Loonies rise? * A new way to bail out? ** Aussie Job Creation Soars! Good day... And a Tub Thumpin' Thursday to you! I just realized yesterday that July was slip-slidin' away from me just like June did, and I had better get to work on my two presentations for the Vancouver Show coming up in two weeks... I've talked about this Conference for months now, but in case you missed the info... Here is the link... http://www.isecureonline.com/Reports/400SCONF/E400J307/ OK... The currencies, for the most part, remain in a trading range that's tight... The euro pops up to 1.5750, and then falls back to 1.5665, and with the euro in a trading range the other currencies are experiencing the same treatment... That is, except for... Drum roll please... The Aussie dollar!...
