FWIW:

From the news wires:

Concerns over the financial sector in Europe - where Moody’s warned over Eastern banks’ troubles potentially impacting their Western “parents” with possible credit rating cuts - translated into steep losses in the Euro. Single currency bearish bias was also magnified by earlier comments from German Finance Min Steinbrueck warning that Ireland is in a difficult spot and may need a coordinated Euro Zone rescue, sending EUR/USD down to levels not seen since December 8th. A breach of 1.27 February support in EUR/USD unleashed a technical wave of USD buying, sending the pair below 1.2650. GBP and CHF followed suit to multi-session lows against USD, with the former falling below 1.42 and USD/CHF rising to 1.1740.

Spot Gold is trading sharply higher in Asia, after moving to a fresh 7-month high earlier during the session. Some dealers noted that stops were triggered after $950/oz was breached on financial sector concern from Europe. In other gold related news, Russia’s first Deputy Chairman Alexei Ulyukayev noted that the country central bank’s gold holdings increased and that Russia was seeking to continue this tendency this year.

We watched the Asian markets buy up a ton of US Dollars, which devalued a lot of Asian currencies, having no idea what sparked the immense purchase of USD.

Now we are trying to keep an eye on Eastern Europe (which is KNOWN to be in financial trouble) to see if the currencies there also devalue

That's okay, it doesn't take a much more complex answer than that.

Well that answers a lot of questions. Still doesn't please me very much to know that the whole monetary system is essentially handled by people like Maddof.

So I guess the only thing to do is to work your butt off and gain financial independence and be very smart with your money.

Man the all of the Asian markets are getting killed.

Keep up the good information, I'm watching the market as well now.

Stay out of debt, save and then buy, and produce something - even if it is only in your own vegetable garden


Then help your friends and family do the same thing


BTW ON topic: new daily lows on GBP/USD, EUR/USD, USD/PLN

Will do. Kind of figured the only way to really fight them is to play them at their own game.

I guess it doesn't really matter what your credit score is if your legit and can pay for whatever it is you want in cash.

I have yet to see anybody turn down a sell no matter how big it is as long as the person has the cash.

Polish authorities’ apparent reluctance to intervene is really beginning to worry analysts who believe the best solution is some sort of coordinated forex intervention, ideally with other Eastern European states.

Event driven...possibly, official sector intervention.

Watch the Eastern European Exchanges...open around 2am ET.

Well it appears the above foreign currency exchange site is down.

Something sure must be going on for the servers to crash like that.

It's not open yet, it opens at 3AM Eastern.

So don't panic yet. 23 minutes to doom.

unless you have a real-time trading account you will have a lag


But you can open a free "play money" account on www.thinkorswim.com where you can see the charts and volume (on stocks, not currencies)

Just takes a little bit of time to learn all the controls if you've never had a trading account before

I just read this whole thread... is there any possibility that the unaccounted for money from the first bailout was flipped a few times over into different currencies to make money and is now being used to buy up USD?
Its a stretch for sure.. but AIG, one of the main companies that received money from the bail out, is known to be scandalous... Here is just one example "Investigators believe that AIG may have goosed its financial performance with dubious transactions and improper accounting." in 2005 www.businessweek.com...

You all remember back when AIG refused to tell us what they did with the money right? In regards to the 150 billion dollars they received... "“You don’t just suddenly lose $120 billion overnight,” said Donn Vickrey of Gradient Analytics, an independent securities research firm in Scottsdale, Ariz." www.nytimes.com...

Anyways... is the above possible

Edit to add - Someone back in the thread said that doing these types of transactions is very risky.. so doing it with our money instead of their own limits the risk so that if they mess up we just loose our money and they owe us it.. but they could just file bankrupcy right?? Anyways.. could someone answer the above question?
