’tis the week to hear from the various Fed governors once again.
Today it is Atlanta Fed president Dennis Lockhart.
I am finding his comments rather unsettling after reading one part of them.

By my estimation, the “official starting point” of the government’s commandeering of financial markets was September 17, 2001, when stocks were blatantly supported upon re-opening after the 9/11 attacks. Since then, the level of manipulation has gradually expanded – often, via PPT “trial balloons” following dramatic […]

The greenback staged a reversal yesterday, and there has been follow through buying in Europe after a quiet Asian session. It seems that after last week’s dramatic reaction to the FOMC, the market is probing for the new range, and this has been complicated by […]

After a few days of dollar weakness due to concerns that the Fed’s rate hike intentions have been derailed following some undisputedly ugly economic data (perhaps the Fed should just make it clear there will never be rate hikes during the winter ever again) the […]

After overnight strength in oil (post-Yemen) and bonds and gold (and weakness in stocks), the last few minutes have seen some of this reverse as chatter crosses the wire of the death of top Houthi leadership in Yemen. Oil prices are tumbling, the dollar is surging, […]

The US dollar is broadly lower, dragged down by the escalation of the conflict in Yemen, month and quarter end position adjustments and the ongoing technical correction following last week’s FOMC meeting. The euro, yen and Canadian dollar are at new highs for the week. […]

Obama will go down as perhaps the worst President at least since 1900 if not ever. He has torn apart the entire fabric of world peace and whoever has made any decisions in global strategy seem to be some sort of Megalomaniac. Russia has developed […]

Dollar dumpage is trumping fun-durr-mentals once again as WTI crude surges back to the highs of the day after its post-inventories plunge… The Algo correlation trades are all breaking down as carry comes undone…

Now it’s Austria, Switzerland, and Australia that have joined dozens of other countries around the world in the anti-dollar alliance.
These nations, which also include most US ‘allies’ in Western Europe like Germany, France and the UK, have all signed on to be founding members […]

The US dollar continues to consolidate in uninspiring activity. There is little technical indication that the downside correction is over. At the same time, US interest rates remain softer, and today’s durable goods orders report is not expected to give the dollar bulls much help. […]

“Just a little patience, yeah…”
– Guns N’ Roses
Lastweek the FOMC essentially removed forward guidance and placed all options back on the table, and at the end of the day they’ve opened the door for further tightening. As Yellen recently explained in advance, the removal of […]

Does the Dollar Hold Enough Attraction to Break Out and Hold at Higher Levels?
Now is the time to begin looking at the US dollar’s re-ascendance in a different light as we approach 1:1 against the euro. Shorter term we have to expect some […]

From day to day and week to week, short-run fluctuations in the price of gold have, of late, been driven almost entirely by expectations of prospective Federal Reserve monetary policies, particularly with respect to short-term interest rates.
In turn, these expectations have been driven by the […]

Chinese rail freight collapses 9.1% YoY; China Manufacturing PMI tumbled back to a contractionary 49.2 – lowest in 11 months; and the Employment sub-index plunged to its lowest since Lehman … yeah but apart from that, everything is awesome. And for those excited about just how […]

The US dollar is mixed as the market continues to search for a new range post-FOMC. The relentless rise of the dollar has been broken with the help of a softer US rate environment. The seemingly relentless push of the euro toward parity has been […]
