Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Quick Summary
Marking The 'Grand Bargain' To Market, One Year On

By Douglas Borthwick:In October, 2010, we authored a report titled "G20, The 'Grand Bargain' Behind the Scenes." The report was widely read, and became the basis for many of our calls within the FX space. Now one year has passed as we enter into the next G20 meeting, and we look back at the forecasts made in that report, and update our current views.

We stated that "Over the next five years we would expect USD/CNY to drop by on average 7.8% annually, adding up to about a 40% revaluation against the USD over the next five years. Similarly we would expect through the causal relationship a global drop in the USD's value by 40%." As the chart below shows, the regressed trend line in the USD/Index since China's move to 'flexibility' shows an annualized 7.86% annualized drop in the USD's value. The pace of USD weakness is right on target.
