Oh, I was wondering why both Greek bonds and gold have rallied...

I don't interest myself in 'why?'. I think more often in terms of 'when?'...sometimes 'where?'. And always how much?'

"Forward currency exchange markets are indicating about a 3.6% dip lower in the Euro over the next 4 years" (BD who shall remain nameless)

"We favor 5s10s Treasury flatteners with a long 5-year duration hedge" (CS)

And while not a quote from an analyst, I thought this one was worth posting: "Speaking in Stockholm on Tuesday, Spanish housing state secretary Beatriz Corredor said her country was most concerned about avoiding a new housing bubble"

GS: EUR/$ Upside is Dollar Downside. Despite a cautious stance on the Euro, linked to the risks mentioned above, we do think that EUR/$ can rally on the back of broader USD weakness.

GENIUS!

Jefferies Credit Rating Raised to Buy vs Stable at Gimme Credit 11:20

   Bondholders have “significant upside” as long as Jefferies “‘doesn’t collapse,” Gimme Credit analyst Kathleen Shanley wrote.
    • JEF is “higher-than-average risk” credit, but given the “reward potential,” upgrading to buy
    

 

Wow. 80 downside, 20 upside! Assuming it doesn't collapse of course. Wonder what their amazing insight is on Greek Bonds?

FT Alphaville 17-Nov-2011:
"First, it’s worth remembering that term unsecured rates became pretty much meaningless as indicators of funding costs after 2008 (at least for longer term lending).

Replacing them, instead, were secured ‘indicators’ like the spread between the overnight index swap rate and Euribor."

Just heard From the BFM radio.

The Japanese are concerned
about the possibility of the yen euro parity.

1 yen to be equal 1 euro? Scared

(the definition of the word parity)

Funnily enough, if you type JPYEUR Curncy Q, you'll get a quote of 100 JPY in EUR (currently 1.01734). EURJPY functions as you might expect.

.I have one question.For a given stock in a given time how often is occurence of  M  size move compared to 2M  size move.My studies over 20 years conclude that M size move should be 4 times more common than 2M size move---based on square root of time principal for option pricing/odds of move of a given size in the underlying in the BLACK SCHOLES formula. BLACK SCHOLES may not be perfect--but the fact remains that trillion dollars of derivatives are traded each day based on this formula & option market makers make money year after year & laugh all the way to the BANK.Similar to relationship between price of one month option versus price of 4 month option,If it takes one month to get M move, it would take 4 months for 2M move in the same stock in the same time period.This tells me that if human brain is kept out of the equation & in SYSTEMATIC(automated) investing in stocks, take profit be 1/2 the size of stop loss( & we already know that markets are RANDOM) then over thosands of RUNS investor shall make a whole lot of money.Out of four trials one makes one dollar 3 times & loses 2 dollars one time with net profit of one dollar--all one has to do is that when take profit is HIT, cancell the unfilled stop loss order & repeat the process over & over.Investor stays direction neutral at all times with no bias long/short.This is not just a theoretical question--if you spend few hours pondering this question I bet your next 5 generations can make tons of money over the next 500 years,just clicking on the LAP TOP & would never have to look for A JOB.Any criticism would be appreciated.Thank you for your help in advance.

Somewhat paraphrased:

Mid-size equity research boutique: We are increasing our price target on XYZ based on number of share-holder friendly initiatives, blah blah blah..... 25% upside potential from here....

15-20 minutes later

Sales Trader from same Mid-Size Equity research boutique: We have 50,000 XYZ for sale.

00:04 GMT USDJPY: Sell rallies to 92.70-90, with stop above 93.00, targeting 91.80 ahead of the main support at 91.20. (Singapore spot desk)

23:36 GMT USDJPY is stuck to a range of 91-93. There is market talk of repatriation-related yen demand which could keep the pair heavy. But we expect better US economic data to keep the upward momentum. Technically, we hope 92.50-55 will become the support, and the pair may try the 200HMA at 93.00 today. Play long. (UBS Tokyo)
