BetOnMarkets Weekly Predictions: Euro to weaken further against the US Dollar

BetOnMarkets Weekly Predictions: Euro to weaken further

The past week had the potential to be explosive. Central bank meetings in the UK and Europe had traders licking their lips with anticipation for the possible outcomes of the meetings and the potential volatility they could bring. Sadly for volatility lovers, the week came and went with little significant turbulence. The FTSE ended the week up almost 150 points. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was not so lucky, losing more than 250 points; most of it on Friday afternoon, when the world largest insurance company AIG announced it will be seeking more then 12 billion dollars in new capital.

The new week brings with it a slew of data from UK and Europe; the common theme being inflation. From Consumer Price Index to Producers Price Index, traders will be looking for a number that's on the higher side of expectations, as oil prices are at an all time high and largely to blame for the inflation run. As it was mentioned last week in the EU bank speech that accompanied the rate decision, the main reason why the decision was taken not to lower interest rates, was the great concern that doing so would cause inflation to spiral out of control. On the US side, the data will focus more on retail sales and the health of the manufacturing industry. Last week, Wal-Mart and a few other big box retailers announced that their 'same store' sales were higher, possibly indicating that consumers are shopping more. If this is the case then perhaps this could be the stimulus that the US president was talking about, or maybe it could be explained by consumers hitting the shops to spend their tax refunds.

Last month the Euro/Dollar hit an all time high near 1.60, since then the Euro has been in a freefall situation, giving back more then 5 cents. Some research among retail foreign exchange merchants shows that the Speculative Sentiment Index is now showing more of a lean towards a weaker Euro. This is the 3rd week that the SSI has been indicating this.

With that in mind, the play of the week is as follows: We are looking for the Euro to weaken further against the US dollar, or at least not test the all time high levels hit earlier last month. A no touch on the Euro/USD maturing May 29th 2008, with a strike price of 1.60 could return 10% ROI.

Will the Stocks Bear Market Continue to Reign?
There were genuine signs of emerging optimism in stock markets last week. Confidence has been largely absent so far in 2009, with every attempted rally squashed before it really had chance to get going. There is a growing sense that this time round things are different, and this belief will only grow further, if markets can survive the next week or so without dropping too far below last Thursday’s low.
Still trapped in financial mess
Considering the dead weight financial sector, stock markets could have fallen a lot further than they eventually did over the course of last week. However, there's no getting away from the mess that financial shares are in. Just over two years ago today, the RBS share price hit an all time high of £7.24. Last weeks low of just 10p highlights the markets underlying concern that the financial cancer has
Credit Crunch Springs Back into Action
After taking some time off between Christmas and New Year, the credit crunch was well and truly back in action last week. Fears over further banking problems and sovereign debt downgrades for the likes of Ireland and Greece surfaced last month, but until now, these fears have merely been simmering in the background. Last week, the heat was once again turned up, and major fault lines are once again
Markets suffer their worst run for generations
The final week of 2008 passed with many markets recording their worst annual performance for generations. Equities finished above their lows, but still finished down by at least 30%. The S&P 500 closed 2008 down 38%, while the Nikkei closed down over 40%. The ‘lost decade’ rolls on ever more for the Japanese stock market. Perhaps the most remarkable performance came from commodities; at one stage, oil and copper were
