The consensus forecast is 0.5% from the prior –0.2%. Eventually stronger data will allow to the Federal Reserve to rise the interest rates further this year.

The U.S. economy is in recession and my personal forecast is that is necessary the Fed to hold the interest rates at 2.00% whole this year or even to cut the interest rates with another quarter percent said George Marshal.
The Crude Oil raises over $17 for a day. This is super historical record. After the biggest ever jump the oil set new record at $139.13 for barrel. The enormous oil rise starts at levels of $121.50.

Mr. Scott Brown energy expert in World-Signals.com said if Iran is attack in new war in the Persian Gulf the oil prices would jump to $300. He confirms his earlier forecast for $200 even $250 at the year-end. But if we see new war in the Gulf against Iran the oil prices will jump to $300 at the beginning of the war. The high U.S. Unemployment rate also support the oil to make this huge jump close to $140. The oil probably will reach $150 till June 20th said Scott Brown and advice all investors to buy oil in expectation for new high trading levels.
European Central Bank continues to support the politic for strong euro. Today the bank signal that monitors the situation and the high inflation and may boost the interest rates.

The dollar recovered against the euro and yen after the positive news for the world biggest economy. The traders predict that the situation of U.S. economy will allow to the Federal Reserve to raise the interest rates at the end of 2008. The high inflation caused by the high oil prices will stop the Fed with the interest rates cut. The forecast of George Marshal Forex analyzer in World-Signals.com is that Fed will raise the key benchmark interest rates with quarter percent in September, October 2008. The dollar was stopped with the recovery at 1.5462. It is necessary more evidences to continue with the recovery of the dollar said George Marshal. He also set his forecast that EURUSD trading level is 2008 is above the level of 1.48.
The dollar will fall today against the major currencies. The reason for the weak dollar today is the fears about the new worse report for U.S. Consumer Confidence. Also the New Home Sales release today will show continue with the Housing sector crisis. We can see the bottom in the U.S. housing sector at the end of summer even in autumn said George Marshal forex analyzer in World-Signals.com. The dollar will test the levels of 1.60 in very short time. If the reports for the U.S. economy continue with the negative data the dollar will test successfully the levels above 1.60. The high oil prices would not allow to the U.S. dollar to recovery. In World-Signals.com see the crisis in United States at least to the end of 2008.
When the oil prices set new records day after day the energy politic is very important moment to stop the panic in the population by high inflation and raising prices. The one of the main energy source the oil is in low resources and is restricted. When the alternative fuels are the most important to stop the panic by absent of enough oil Europe develop project to stop the alternative fuels like methane, natural gas and others using in the transport vehicles. Few years ago Germany started with the plan to stop all nuclear reactors. If this bad plan happens the economy will stop. Finally Germany decides to back to the nuclear industry. After the idea for nuclear industry stop, Europe started plan to develop bio fuels as use agricultural production. The effect was high price jump of all foods. Europe is on the way to stop this plan. After serial of mistakes Europe make the new biggest mistake. The natural gas, methane, the cheapest gas in enormous resources will be not using. All these mistakes lead the world economy to super fuel crisis with everyday prices up of restricted resources. The energy expert Scott Brown of World-Signals.com shows three key fuel alternatives that Europe does not use. The industry, transport vehicles and motors to use alternative fuels like methane, hydrogen and electricity. The first two are in almost unlimited resources while are necessary improving of the technology. The electricity is possible to produce by cheaper nuclear industry and the free water, wind and solar station. The starting energy crisis will be the ever-biggest crisis in the world. Scott Brown provides the forecast that the oil prices will jump to $250 till the end of 2008. In some of the possible scenarios Scott Brown see chances the oil prices to jump to $300 till the end of 2008.
The markets remain mix in an absent of key economic events today. The trading in Euro-Dollar is flat. The trading is based over technical analyses. The pressure over the dollar remains as overall due too the raising speculations for continue of U.S. housing slumps. We can see new attacks on the forex market against the dollar said George Marshal forex analyzer in World-Signals.com. These attacks will test the levels of 1.60 again. The continue raise of Oil prices will continue to hurt the U.S. economy. There is not important event to move the market, as we will continue to see trading at the levels of 1.53/57 said Peter Mill forex expert in World-Signals.com. The Euro-Dollar today was trading at 1.5632 and recovery to 1.5573 in the time when U.S. market open today.
The dollar consolidates in mix information about the Fed and ECB interest rates politic. The latest speculations show that European Central Bank will hold the interest rates at 4.0% till the end of the summer and will rise in the autumn to 4.25%. The Federal Reserve still not sends clear signals for the interest rates politic. The speculations show that will be necessary new interest rates cut with quarter or half percent to stimulate the economy. Some other analyzers predict the Fed to hold the interest rates at 2.0% and to raise at the end of the year due too high inflation cause by the record oil prices. We can see new levels of 1.60 if there are not clear signals for the situation of U.S. economy said George Marshal forex analyzer in World-Signals.com. The World-Signals.com forecast is the euro to fall to 1.48 even 1.46 against the dollar to the end of 2008.
In the last business week the Crude Oil set new trading record every day. Five days in the week with five new records. The crude oil jumped with $10 a week. This is an extraordinary week with so huge price jump. At this moment we can ask the following question: Who can stop the raising oil prices? At the same time Scott Brown energy expert in World-Signals.com answer: No one, but there are many people and events that could push the oil for new records. OPEC is almost at the top of the technology production capacity. There is oil but there is not technology to supply the oil in fast and cheaper method. The raising consummation from China and developing world making the production daily oil not enough. At the same time United States buy oil in huge volumes making new extra oil stores. We are close to the time when China will do the same and we are close to the time when the oil production would not be enough to supply the world economy. The describing scenario of Scott Brown is too black. The oil prices can jump to $200 much faster than our first forecast for the end of 2008. We can see the oil prices above $200 these summer’s months said Mr. Brown energy expert in World-Signals.com
The Crude Oil breaks the records by the last week in spite the strong dollar. Although that the dollar is trading almost 500 pips far from the record trading levels of 1.6019 against the euro the oil set new record. This is the first break of the oil above the levels of $120 per barrel. The tendency for continues rising of the oil prices is significantly this week when the dollar is stronger. The oil will move above $120 for barrel this month as will continue to close to the levels of $130 at the end of May said Scott Brown energy expert in World-Signals.com. Mr. Brown predicted the raise of the Crude Oil to $120 in April in earlier forecast this year. The last Crude Oil record is at $122.63 and that would not be all as the forecast remain for continue upward movement.
The dollar is on the way to make second winning week against the euro. The dollar gained almost 600 pips from the record trading level of 1.6019 on April 22nd. The gains of the dollar against the euro, Swiss franc, and yen will continue in the coming couple of days. It is very important the U.S. Non-farm Payrolls to support the dollar today. If the report is positive the dollar gains will continue. One of the reasons for the recovery of the dollar is the end of Fed interest rates cut. After the last correction with quarter percent the Fed will hold the interest rates at 2.00% for long time. The second reason for the recovery of the dollar is the first weakness signals for the Euro Zone. The growth in Europe is with new correction down. The problems for Europe comes while United States probably are at the bottom and will start moving up. The next fundamental news for the Euro Zone and United States probably will continue to support the raise of the dollar said George Marshal forex analyzer in World-Signals.com.
The forecast of World-Signals.com for $120 for barrel happens. The world is near the top of the possible expansion of oil productions. There are not technologically chances for further increase of oil production in near-term. Also most of the oil stores are in difficult areas to produce, as is necessary time and high investments to supply. The Crude Oil almost touches $120 for barrel today and continue with the new records day after day. The forecast of World-Signals.com earlier this year for levels of $120 in April 2008 happen. We are forecasting the crude oil to trade at $120 in April in our earlier forecast: http://www.world-signals.com/forexnews/display-item.php?newsid=26 The new forecast is continuing of the raises of oil prices in whole 2008. We can see levels of $150 for barrel in September 2008 while at the end of 2008 the forecast of World-Signals.com is levels up to $160-$180. There are not chances for production expansion and also OPEC would not raise the production said Scott Brown energy expert in World-Signals.com. At the same time the consummation of oil expanded continues. China and India will continue to expand the consummation while at the same time the terrorists will continue to attack the pipelines. While at the same time at any recovery of the oil there are many traders ready to buy oil.
Europe starts to suffer by the high oil prices and the crisis over the Atlantic. The Germany Business Confidence down to the lowest level in the last two years. The biggest European economy Germany the locomotive of Europe comes in crisis period due too the high inflation caused by foods and oil prices jump. The International Monetary Fund cut Germany’s growth forecast for this year. Due too these problems for Europe the investors expect the European Central Bank action. It is expecting the bank to dump the inflation and to cut the interest rates within six months time. The dollar starts with fast recovery against the euro after the release of Germany Business Confidence during the morning European session. If the recovery continue the euro dollar trading should reach levels of 1.5550 said George Marshal forex analyzer in World-Signals.com.
The Fed is close to the time when will stop with the interest rates cut. The forecast is that the Fed will cut the interest rates between quarter and half percent on April 30th 2008. Due too the high inflation in United States the Fed is close the time when will end the interest rates cut. We can see levels down to 1.50-1.75% and then the Fed will stop said George Marshal forex analyzer in World-Signals.com. The United States recession deeper and will continue to spread over the world economy. The years of progress are over. It is time to see high inflation. The world is very close to the time when the banknotes would not means prosperity and the resources. The one of the most important investment these days is the oil. The oil would not turn the tendency for raising prices due too the limitation of the resource.
The recession is fact for the world biggest economy. The dollar again is at new record low level against the euro. The attacks against the dollar start during the European session today. It is close to see levels above 1.60 said George Marshal forex analyzer in World-Signals.com. The traders speculate against the poor situation of U.S. economy today. The attacks against the dollar started earlier today due too the concerns for the economic results for U.S. Housing Starts and Building Permits. The new housing starts rise by the prior month slowly but the fact is the end of the winter and much more project houses start to build. The key future indicator Building Permits set new poor result. The recession is fact for the world biggest economy. This time recession with inflation add Mr. Marshal. The dollar set the new record at 1.5968 and is very close to break above 1.60. The Oil prices continue to jump day after day as by this way the dollar continue to lose. We can see levels as far as 1.65/1.67 if ECB and Fed not take together actions against the losing dollar.
The world economy is in crisis and we are not seeing the bottom yet. G-7 continues to monitor the forex market very closely and is concern about the fluctuations in exchange rates. Most of the analysers said that these words would help to the dollar not to lose so fast against the major currency. In World-Signals.com we do not believe the win of the dollar by G-7 meeting. The dollar will remain under new attacks and we can see levels of 1.60 and above this month said George Marshal analyser in World-Signals.com. At the same time the cut of oil production by OPEC will boost the oil above $112 up to $115 in very short time that will help to the euro to gain against the dollar above 1.60. The world economy is in crisis and we are not seeing the bottom yet, said George Marshal. The situation will out of control if all majors banks not start working together to avoid the consequences by the credit crisis and U.S. recession together with strong inflation in Europe. The inflation will remain the main concern for Europe. Europe will give to the world the inflation crisis, while U.S. spread the credit crisis. U.S. and Europe send to the world recession, high inflation, as the crisis already starts in Europe.
The market is very dynamic today. But as overall the volumes are not high. The traders start to speculate whether the U.S. economy is reached the bottom. The forecast is that the credit crisis is in the bottom and the economy will start to recovery. At the same time the Fed will cut the interest rates once with quarter percent or maximum to half percent. The Euro-Dollar touches 1.58 today during the Asian session. The dollar recovered during the European session. The tendencies for weak dollar remains as key for the dollar are the levels above 1.58. The chances for break above 1.5903 remain high said George Marshal analyzer in World-Signals.com. The forecast is for mix trading with movements close to 1.58 again and recovery down below 1.5670.
The dollar losing continue using the moment of speculations about the situation in U.S. jobs market. The traders speculate that today’s report will show U.S. Unemployment rate at 5.0%. At the same time the world biggest economy will lose over 50 000 jobs. Also speculations for new Fed interest rates cut and the words of Bernanke that the economy is in recession push the dollar at the levels close to the record low against the euro. “We can see levels of 1.58 today even close to 1.5903 the record levels since March 17th,” said George Marshal market analyzer in World-Signals. The forecast of World-Signals.com is new interest rates cut with half percent to 1.75% while is possible new cut with 75 bps to 1.5%. This will be the last interest rates cut according to George Marshal and will keep for at least 12-months.
The Euro declines for second day against the dollar after the release of UBS plan for additional capital of $15 billion. The bank is the biggest European bank loser from U.S. subprime crisis. An UBS problem is the first solid signal for the spread crisis in the European Union. Europe will suffer from U.S. crisis predict some expert’s very soon. After the UBS bank news was release follow mass euro sells. The recovery of the dollar will continue. The expert of World-Signals.com George Marshal forecast that the euro would down to 1.5450 against the dollar. Yesterday the EURUSD was trading at 1.5896 just 6 pips away from the ever time record. After that the EURUSD recovered to 1.5653 during the morning European session.
The dollar finished the trading week at the levels of 1.58. The dollar is very close to test again 1.59 in any new negative news for the U.S. economy or positive news for the Euro Zone. According to our analyses in World-Signals.com Euro Dollar trading will test 1.59 in the coming week. We can see levels of 1.60 up to 1.6150 in the first week of April said George Marshal analyzer in World-Signals. The speculations for U.S. jobs market are on focus now. Except that the chances for new interest rates cut with 50 bps to 75 bps raises day after day. In this situation the prediction are for successful break above 1.5902. On downturn the dollar should gain to 1.56 or 1.5550 but the chances for such movement are minimal.
The EURUSD is possible to turn back above 1.56 very fast. The dollar is again under pressure after the new recovery during the Asian session. Although that Europe celebrates the Eastern the market is very dynamic in low volumes. The rumors for deeper crisis and possible intervention far above the current trading levels push the speculations to open again new long positions. The traders continue to trade against the dollar said George Marshal analyzer in World-Signals.com. We can see fast trading move within two days to the records of 1.5905 add Mr. Marshal. The chances for continue of the dollar recovery decrease hour after hour. The expecting key U.S. fundamental events probably will push the dollar up above 1.56 till the end of Tuesday.
The dollar recovery today against the major currencies like the euro with about 200 pips, the British pound with over 300 pips, the Gold spot with more than 50 dollars, Crude Oil with over 5 dollars and other commodities and currencies. The reason for the dollar gains is profit taken. In very high volumes the investors turn back the profit. The euro not succeeds to break for second time above the levels of 1.59 and in second day not set new records. “The profit taken will continue elsewhere,” said George Marshal analyzer in World-Signals.com. In the coming days the pressure against the dollar will remain while most of the investors predict new 75 bps interest rates cut till the summer. If the Fed continues to cut the interest rates with 75 bps to 1.5% then we can say this will be the last interest rates change into downside.
The investors are ready for 100 bps interest rates cut. The investors are ready for tomorrow’s Fed interest rates cut with 100 bps to 2.00%. The Fed must cut the interest rates fast to levels of 1.5%-2.0% to be able to reduce the consequences by the credit crisis said Peter Mill expert by World-Signals.com. The Fed had to be aggressive with the interest rates politic during the Summer-Autumn 2007, as this decision will come too late to help to U.S. recession. The dollar probably will be set on new attacks to test the levels of 1.60 tomorrow. Together with the expecting new worse U.S. housing data the chances for the dollar are just over the banks intervention. “The situation is out of control everywhere the traders sell dollars,” said George Marshal economist in World-Signals. In this market with continue forecasts for dollar weakness the trading ideas remain in new sells of dollars.
The Gold, EURUSD and USDCHF with new records today. The traders prefer to sell dollars at the end of very dynamic business week, a week where the dollar was widely losing. The euro set new trading record against the dollar at 1.5686. At the same time the Swiss Franc was trading for first time below 1.00 @ 0.9987. The Gold finally break above $1000 with new record @ 1006.70 just 30 minutes after New York opening. The traders run away by the dollar and turn all investments in other investments like Gold, Oil and other currencies. The Gold breaks $100 levels between $900 and $1000 just for 2-months. The moving up will continue and we do not see other solid psychological level to stop the raising metal.
The fears that ECB and Fed will intervention on the market stop the traders by risky new bought of euro against the dollar. At the same time some of traders take profit by the last movements up. Still is early to talk for full profit taken process we believe in World-Signals.com. If follow profit taken process the EURUSD trading will turn down to levels of 1.5250. Most of the traders wait for levels of 1.5500 where the forecast is to open new long with target of new record level. The dollar was supported after the release of European consumer prices and wages rose more than economists forecast, as leave room to ECB to lower the interest rates in the second half of the year. The EURUSD was trading today just before the start of European session at new record of 1.5650. Some traders already speculate when are possible interventions as the forecasts show levels of 1.60 for such intervention.
The U.S. Retail Sales were worse than expected today. U.S. Retail Sales for February down to –0.6% from the prior month of 0.4% and forecast for 0.2%. At the same time the Retail Sales ex-auto for February down to –0.2% by prior 0.5% and forecast of 0.2%. The U.S. market continues to suffer by the almost starting recession. At the same time the weekly initial claims remain unchanged from the prior week at 353K by forecast for 353K. The news for worse than forecasting U.S. Retail Sales was widely expecting during the European session and the market generate this news already. In the first minutes after the news the dollar up slowly against the majors as just 3-hours before was trading at new record against the euro @ 1.5626. The all factors are against the dollar these days and there are not signs for support for the currency of the world biggest economy said Peter Mill by World-Signals.com.
The Crude Oil breaks above $110 for first time. The Crude Oil set new record at $110.15 during the end of U.S. session. The Crude Oil breaks above $100 for first time on February 22nd 2008. Just 22 days after this psychological break above $100 the crude oil break $110. The raising of the oil would not stop. In World-Signals.com we predict trading levels in April 2008 of $120-$125. At the end of 2008 the Crude Oil will be trading at the levels of $180-$200. Many traders turn their investments in commodity sector. The oil is on the way to set new records every day while OPEC continue to hold the production at the same volumes and the dollar continue to suffer by U.S. recession. The traders use any turning down with $1-2 to buy again expecting new records. It is necessary strong support by OPEC and the central banks to stop the market panic.
Just intervention on the market will stop the falling dollar. The Fed measures to support the dollar with $200 billion was positive just for 16-hours. After the report for Euro Zone Industrial Production the dollar lose and is close to the record trading level against the euro from yesterday. It is expecting to see try to set new record today. The possibility to see trading of EURUSD above 1.55 is more than 75%. The industrial production in the Euro Zone raise much more than the expectations up to 0.9% from the consensus 0.3, 0.4%. While the Fed action to prevent the recession and credit crisis is with long-term meaning the moment conditions remain strong negative for the dollar. To help for the dollar is necessary just one action. This was the action that happen in 2000 when ECB intervention on the market. We at World-Signals.com believe that is necessary strong intervention on the market at least twice time to turn the tendency of falling dollar.
Today the Fed makes the first support for the dollar by many times. For first time the dollar gain so much against the euro after the very disappointed reports for the U.S. growth forecast and the better than expected Euro Zone and especially Germany Sentiment Index. The dollar was trading at 1.5493 against the euro during the noon in Europe. The Fed finally takes action as announced plan for support of the credit market crisis with fresh $200B available through weekly auctions. Just for 3-hours after the news the dollar gain over 200 pips against the euro. If the Fed measures are adequate and continue to support the dollar in near-term the trade should back at the levels below 1.50. The Fed statement today is signal that finally the Fed is care about the crisis in U.S. mortgage sector. But it is necessary more steps to stop the falling dollar.
On the world market the situation is just like a hard crisis. Record level of Oil prices, Gold prices, Euro Dollar, Dollar Swiss Franc. The investors sell dollars and move to metal trading and commodities. The Gold prices will reach $1000 this month while the Oil prices moving sure above $100. The forecast of World-Signals.com is in March to see the Gold at levels of $1050-$1100, at the same time the Oil at $110/120 while EURUSD will be trading at levels of 1.55 and the Swiss franc will be equal to the dollar even will be trading at 0.98/0.99. The Fed prepare to cut the interest rates again, but it action is too late. The U.S. economy sends many signals to the world that the crisis is deep and come into recession. It is came black time for U.S. and the dollar.
The dollar remains stable after Existing Home Sales. The dollar keeps the positions from Friday. The consolidation process of Euro-Dollar at 1.4800/30 continue after the better than expected U.S. Existing Home Sales. The forecast for January was 4.80M while the release data at 10 AM today was 4.89M. The Existing Home Sales still going lower from the prior month at 4.91M. The dollar trading is in very low range today as still is waiting for new signs for the situation of the world biggest economy. The traders expect tomorrow’s key Consumer Confidence report that in the last month was at very low-level signal for recession in United States. At the same time the oil prices remain close to $100 for barrel that continue to push new negative signals for the U.S. economy.
The dollar recovery against the euro was for very short time. Although the good U.S. fundamental data include higher inflation and almost stopping fall of new housing starts the dollar lose the gains within 4-hours time. The traders continue to consider the euro as very attractive currency and buy at any better levels. The record oil prices above $100 make the traders very nervous. The dollar recovery during the early U.S. morning to 1.4613 but very fast lose 100 pips and at the moment is trading at 1.4717 one hour before the U.S. close. The latest U.S. economic events should be considered as positive but the fears in the investors together with the record oil prices send new negative signals for the dollar. In the coming few days the oil will hold the trading levels above $100 while the dollar will be under pressure elsewhere said Peter Mill expert in World-Signals.com.
The British pound after the temporary and speculative recovery against the dollar starts to suffer. During the morning European session today the traders in panic sell pounds. The first nationalization of bank since 1984 is fact. The suffering bank Northern Rock will be nationalize that send very bad signals for the situation in U.K. bank sector. The pound lose more than 120 pips for just few hours against the dollar. The pound will continue to suffer as the crisis deeper and is widely expecting Bank of England to cut the benchmark interest rates couple of times this year. The forecast of World-Signals.com is continuing selling of pounds. The pound will lose against the dollar in short-term and long-term period. We see chances for tiny recovery of the pound in mid-term period said Peter Mill expert in World-Signals.com. The key support at the moment is form as psychological level at 1.90 while the technical support is at 1.9337.
The dollar continues to lose against the euro and Swiss franc after Bernanke speak for the economy weakness. The latest movement is based on speculative trading. The latest economic reports show some positive signals in U.S. Retail Sales and Trade Deficit. At the same time there are many signals for starting crisis in the Euro Zone also signals for starting cut of Euro Zone interest rates. On the other side the recession in the world biggest economy is still in doubt and the Fed and Bush administration will invest to avoid the recession. The latest dollar weakness is absolutely speculative and do not show the real fundamentals said Peter Mill expert in World-Signals.com. The recovery of the dollar was stopped first by the technical support but after that was not supported. At the end Bernanke again send negative signals for the dollar that effect is already in progress on the forex markets.
The traders continue to search direction for the Euro-Dollar trading in the first day of the new week. The trading today was based on technical trading. The traders also continue to speculate with the situation of the U.S. economy, but this time the worries for the European economy rising also. Some signals by the Euro Zone show-starting crisis like the crisis on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. The dollar will continue to take advance against the euro this week said Peter Mill by World-Signals.com. We expect in near-term the dollar to test at the levels below 1.44 against the euro. We see chances for successive test. The taking measures by the Fed and U.S. administration of the president Bush are normal strong and should support the U.S. economy. At the same time ECB president continue with the firm politic about the interest rates. This will be not measure on time, because the crisis in the Euro Zone is on daily order.
BoE to cut the interest rates with quarter percent today. The one of the top news today is the Bank of England policy meeting. The investor’s consensus is that the bank will cut the key benchmark interest rates with quarter percent. This will be the second interest rates cut after the start with credit crisis on the island. The first bank suffering by the problems with the U.S. mortgage sector in Europe and UK was Northern Rock. Bank of England keep the highest interest rates among the four key banks in the world. The starting recession in U.S. cause some problems in UK that problems will widen if BoE not act fast. Bank of England should cut the interest rates with half percent or to make new quarter percent cut on the next meeting said Peter Mill expert in World-Signals.com. We at World-Signals.com predict Bank of England to make at least 3 corrections down with quarter percent this year. The pound loss against the dollar and is necessary to break below 1.9337 the record low since January 22nd 2008. If the pound break below this level is expecting test of the levels below 1.90 in near term.
The euro failed to battle with the dollar for new record. The result of the fail to break above 1.4960 was recovery of the dollar to levels below 1.48. The new week will be a week of speculation news that will send new negative signals to the dollar and U.S. economy. There are strong interest of many investors and banks to keep the dollar as low as possible. The traders expect the key ISM Services on Tuesday, as is expecting reading above the key level of 50 where levels up means continue expanding of the economy. The consensus forecast is for level of 53.0. The key trading at the high levels of 1.4860/1.4940 is the strong resistance where many traders are ready to sell in expectation for recovery of the dollar. The chances for euro gains against the dollar are minimal. It is expecting recovery of the dollar in the coming week. But the break above 1.4960 will be critical for the dollar stability in the coming couple of months.
The dollar is in very delicate situation close to the record low level against the euro. Any strong action by the traders will break the key resistance levels of 1.4960 and the trading will move above 1.50. The break of this psychological level will start real panic on the markets. The panic will move the dollar at 1.52-1.53 very fast. It is very important for the dollar to not beak above 1.49 in these days. The market is ready to accept new half percent interest rates movement down to 3.00%. But Bernanke is unpredictable and always surprises are possible. The U.S. economy still is possible to avoid recession said Peter Mill expert in World-Signals.com but it is necessary adequate actions of the Fed and Barnanke.
The optimism for the situation of U.S. economy is at the lowest level since the start of the crisis for U.S. mortgage sector. The expectations are high that Fed action was not enough this week when the Fed cut the benchmark interest rates with 3/4th of the percent. The forecast is the Fed to cut the interest rates with half percent to 3/4th of the percent. May be many traders memory Bernanke speech few months ago when he said after half percent interest rates cut that is the last cut? May be the traders who believe to Bernanke are too low already. It seems that Bernanke do not know what doing and how to avoid the almost starting recession. I do not see chances for strong U.S. economy with Bernanke said Peter Mill expert in World-Signals.com. This man make step after step from bad to worse. The chances for U.S. economy to recovery were high but after Bernanke actions the chances are minimal already.
In the period when there are not key economic events the most important for the traders is the technical trading together with the speculations about the Fed and ECB interest rates politic. Most of the traders use the very good bottom of EURUSD @ 1.4365 and open long positions in high volumes expecting new high levels. Although that the situation in the European Union is not clear with forecast for slow down of economic growth together with cutting of the key benchmark interest rates. At the same time the fears of U.S. recession come into Europe and most of the economists predict worse situation in the Euro Zone. It is widely expecting the Fed to cut the interest rates at the end of January with 50 to 75 bps while ECB to cut the interest rates with 50 bps to the end of 2008. In World-Signals.com predicts that ECB have to cut the interest rates more than 50 bps to the end of 2008, while for the Fed this interest rates correction have to be the last of the serial correction by the last couple of months.
The dollar was strongly supported by European Central Bank council member Yves Mersch who said that ECB should exercise caution as risks to economic growth mount, prompting investors to bet the ECB is shifting its stance toward a cut in interest rates. The crisis in the US housing sector and the fears for expecting recession should come into EU warn ECB. If the leading economic in the world come into recession the chances for recession and serious economic crisis in EU are more than 50% said Peter Mill expert in World-Signals.com. ECB have to think earlier with the interest rates politic and instead to raise the interest rates to think for eventually cut and balancing between the inflation and the expecting problems in the Euro Zone.
The Gold spot continue to move to new records. Many traders already expect the psychological break of $1000 for the Gold after the touch of $900 this week. The investors trade just like the world is in war and the most important investments are the well knows precious metals.

The forecast of World-Signals.com is break above $900 in February 2008 and levels above $1000 in the mid of 2008. At the beginning of 2007 the gold was trading at the levels of $605 as move over $250 for a year or 40% raise.
Very disappointed reports for the US non-farm payrolls with rise of just 18K in forecasting of +70K. At the same time the Unemployment rate up to 5.0% with 0.2% higher than the forecast and 0.3% high than the prior month. The analysis in the consensus expectations do not show so big difference and may be in the coming month there will be correction of the these reports. The dollar breaks above 1.48 after the report versus the euro and is ready to close the record levels of 1.4950 from November 2007. At the same time Peter Mill expert in World-Signals.com said that the traders prepare for trading levels of 1.50 this month.
It is better most of the U.S. consumers to make shopping at the last day of the year to help the economic using the very good prices in the shops and to forget about the job today. Stop working today and go to shopping is the best help for the U.S. economy that have to send positive signals in the beginning of 2008. For the last business day in 2007 the market is in very low volumes. Practically the trading will be dynamic today in these very low volumes. The start of 2008 is very important and many traders will follow the trading direction during the year the trading by the first week of 2008 direction. As overall today the dollar will make recovery against the majors currencies.
The U.S. Durable Orders send the one of the most important signal to the traders to start with the new fast sell of dollars. The dollar loses more than 300 pips against the euro during the trading of low volumes in the market holiday. In World-Signals.com predict new dollar lows with chances for test of the record low levels since November this year. The situation for the dollar and U.S. economy remain black while at the same time the European Central Banks continue to support the strong Euro. In this situation the dollar is one the losing position again. The market situation changed very fast and the dollar is again the loser by this situation said Peter Mill expert in World-Signals.com.
Optimism for the world biggest economy keeps the dollar stable at the end of the year. Just a day before the holiday the traders prefer to close their short EURUSD positions, but the tendency for new dollar recovery after the holiday remains. The dollar will test the levels below 1.40 to the end of 2007 or at the beginning of 2008. The U.S. economy is in good condition and after the holiday will send positive fundamental signals. In World-Signals.com the tendency is for positive news for the U.S. economy and continue recovery of the dollar. We expect test of 1.40 in very short time probably the end of the year before.
The British pound fell below the level of 2.00 and even test the levels of 1.99 today after the solid decision by Bank of England to cut the interest rates with quarter percent this month. The traders speculate by the statement today that BoE is ready to cut the interest rates again in the beginning of 2008. The recovery of the dollar against the pound will continue, as the key supports are form at 1.9800 and the levels of 1.9550/1.9600. These both levels will be tested till the end of 2008. We at World-Signals.com hold short positions in target of 1.19600 in near term.
The year 2007 we at World-Signals.com call the year of the highest inflation in the whole world. This high inflation comes in the world biggest economy after the Friday’s consumer price index report. Almost all countries of the world suffer by extremely high inflation this year. The inflation this year was cause by couple of factors one of the most important is the high oil prices and the weak dollar. The rumors and fears for the starting recession in U.S. together with the problems with the world economic growth send the currency investments as losing. Finally this high U.S. inflation causes the Fed to think about the new interest rates correction. The high inflation would not allow to Bernanke to cut the key benchmark interest rates again. The dollar is attractive currency again and many traders will start to accumulate dollars in expectations for recovery.
