How to Survive When Prices Don't Move

Cambridge Joe 21:22 GMT 04/24/2014
Too much for my poor brain to try to understand where things go... cross-flows.

I have usdx showing significant down side looming from the 15 min 30 min supported by the hourly, so it's not nothing.

Last time this showed was 3/ April 14... thru to 10 April.


Minority Report?
Cambridge Joe 20:47 GMT 04/24/2014

“artificial neural networks”, which mimics the function of the human brain.

I did hear of such a set-up. The prime mover was a chess master at the age of six. He sold his company to a global major tech company for GBP M400. No change in operations... he still goes to work. I know people who knew him through chess.

This company has predictive algos which tell you how people will think / react / respond to circumstances / situations / stimuli.

Nice to know that The Red Queen (Resident Evil) gives a toss what we might think !

Still..... it's all about advertising, sales and managing the resources, apparently.

with the motto: “New World. New security.”

BRS Labs’ AISight is different because it doesn’t rely on a human programmer to tell it what behaviour is suspicious. It learns that all by itself.

AISight permanently learns and registers when changes in normal behavior occur, so no ongoing programing is required from human operators. In order to do this, it employs a technology known as “artificial neural networks”, which mimics the function of the human brain.

What’s more, BRS Labs’ system is extremely easy to implement even across huge, disparate networks of outdated camera equipment. The company claims that it needs maximum of only a few days for the complete hardware and software installation.

Fair Point re: Ukraine

I'n not sure that anyone has any serious questions about how that situation will eventually play out. The real question is what will happen next after Ukraine.

I have a comment- great update and lays out a Friday roadmap although I would add that Ukraine risk should keep the market cautious and contained in ranges.

Australia: Holiday

Japan: CPI and employment data are usually are not market-moving. Higher inflation would be seen as constructive as Japan tries to work its way out of its deflationary hole. Keep in mind, the higher consumption tax will be a drag on consumption, not a sigh of increased demand.

Forex implications: Hard to figure

United Kingdom: Retail Sales data are closely watched in all major economies as a measure of the strength of the consumer.

Forex Implications:
Strong data=strong GBP
Weak data=weak GBP

U.S. Markit flash Service PMI new data series. traders follow the ISM Service PMI more closely

Final University of MIchigan Sentiment Survey. Preliminary 82.6 reading expected to be revised higher to 83.0

Forex Implications:
Strong data=strong USD
Weak data=weak USD

We are still in a market that lacks big ideas, so the correlation trades led by equities should rule the day. This will not last forever. At some point the EURUSD will either break through the ceiling put in place by the ECB or U.S. fundamentals will improve to the point where the USD will rise. What we may need is for bond yields to start to rise due to an improving economy. Higher yields due to inflation would be negative.

Thoughts, Comments, Questions??

Late in European trade, today has turned into a "risk-off" session. The EURUSD is now about steady (1.3824). Prices in prime fixed income markets are mostly mixed. The prices for the peripheral bond markets are lower.

European equities are closing mixed. Far East equity markets ended mixed earlier. U.S. equities are mixed. The U.S. 10-yr was last 2.70%, +2 bp.

This has not been a good time for momentum or breakout trading.

Now, into a weekend that should be looking ahead to the FOMC meeting and EZ HICP next week, it now has to worry about its back with Ukraine coming out of the background.

European Jawboning
Paris ib 14:30 GMT 04/24/2014
The Europeans know a new economic order is being born and they don't want to wear the burden of becoming the next over-valued reserve currency. They also kind of like the current economic world order dominated by Western Industrialised countries, so they are happy to play along with the idea that the USD is the big reserve currency - even as its role as reserve currency continues to crumble. China and Russia have other ideas and another perspective. Ukraine is important. There are two options, maybe three:
1) U.S. loses face and prestige.
2) A festering conflict is sponsored in the Ukraine causing problems for everyone.
3) The festering conflict bleeds into a direct confrontation between nuclear super-powers.

In all cases I can't see China maintaining its current stock of U.S. Treasuries and that is a problem for the U.S. funding options and the economy.

"Abe is a tough customer. His rhetoric is heavy on "escaping the post-war regime", as in re-weaponizing Japan and not playing second fiddle militarily to Washington in Asia anymore. The Pentagon obviously has other ideas....

Beijing, predictably, sees all that for what it really is, as expressed in this Xinhua op-ed; the actions of an "anachronistic", "sclerotic" and "myopic" superpower that needs to "shake off its historical and philosophical shackles"."

If Abe is a tough customer it might be time to rethink the 'wall of money' idea which was going to see the USD/JPY make new highs. Not happening.

We have invested more than 5 billion dollars to help Ukraine to achieve these and other goals."

Looks like stops run on both sides around 1.3810 - but no clue why EUR should benefit except market caught short. Looks like 1.3820 (top of the closing range) as minor resistance although day charts also show it at 1.3827-32. With that said markets being driven by a run for cover more than technicals.

Posssiblt the coming sanctions will weigh more on the Mkts.
Paris ib 13:54 GMT 04/24/2014
The Obama administration is actually trying to isolate both China and Russia because of their persistent moves away from the use of the USD as a trading currency, and the concerns this raises about the future of the USD as a reserve currency. Obama in Asia is trying to sew up a trade agreement which actually excludes China (and sell a few more weapons as well), while boosting the U.S.-Japan alliance and trying to increase tensions between Japan and China.

Before this wars were waged against any country which moved away from the use of the USD.... this time the problem is somewhat bigger, but the U.S. strategy seems the same.

Zero chance of war but risk is a mini Cold War (e.g. sanctions)
