Gold continues to consolidate below the $1400 level. No change from previous analysis on the commodity, waiting for either a move above $1500 or below $1300 for the next big direction. We have FOMC and G-8 this week, I don’t expect any big surprise coming out of these meetings but it is better to be [...]
Even though gold was up in today’s trading but its inability to stay above $1400 is troubling. Technically, I believe the correction in gold is over. If the bull market in gold is still intact, $1300 level should hold. A break below this level means a reverse in trend for the commodity.
President Obama is failing as CEO of the U.S government. His appointment of Susan Rice to be his top national security advisor and other missteps, indicate he views the fallout from recent scandals as a political challenge, rather than a management failure. Nothing could be less true or more damaging.
It has been a rollercoaster ride for the USD/Yen in the past few days. The direction of the movement was expected but not the speed of this correction. At the time of this article, USD/Yen is trading around 99.00. I have no firm conviction on the next direction at this time, thus prefer to be [...]

by Dixon Fung From yesterday analysis, USD/Yen broke 98.80 support and fell to the low of 96.00 at the time of this article. Even though, I originally have 94.60 as the target, but after the quick move today, I need to re-evaluate the situation.

This is in line with the pace of recent months but hardly enough to lower unemployment down to acceptable levels. In the first quarter, GDP was up only 2.5 percent, due to stronger consumer spending and an inventory bounce. Despite [...]
RBA held rate at historic low last night with bias of further easing is sending the AUD/USD lower. The over-night cash rate is standing at 2.75 percent at the moment and in the view of the RBA, the foreign exchange rate is still high despite a close to 7 percent decline in value since the [...]
USD/Yen came close to the target from last week analysis of 98.50 today. The next direction of the USD/Yen depends on the Japanese stocks market. The Nikkei has been retracing from the high of 15,900 to the recent level of 13261. There is good support at 13100, the 38.2 percent Fibonacci retracement.
Tuesday, the Commerce Department is expected to report the April deficit on international trade in goods and services was $41.2 billion, up from $24.9 billion when the economic recovery began. The Obama Administration’s ill-conceived energy policies and appeasement of China and Japan are responsible for this jump in the trade gap and the slow pace [...]
