Europe's Crisis: Much Bigger Than Subprime, Worse Than U.S.

http://finance.yahoo.com/tech-ticker/article/195065/Europe

I did not know we have crysis here... :-)

This is more for UK, Poland and their zlota, Austria and Switzerland.

For Bulgarian readers:

Bulgarian Lev is fixed to the EUR. So we will not suffer more than EU. The movie is for Poland or Romania where the currency *is* floating. Romanian Leia is not 25% cheaper to the EUR.

Realestate - I said realestate will crash long time ago. However I do not believe the realestate to fall more than 20-30% (from top to the bottom), because the pricese are not balooned enought. Sure 30% is too much if you pay mortgage.

About banks here - we do not have Bulgarian banks, except probably PIB. The private sources in Bulbank for example told me, that the "mother" bank (Unicredit) stops support Bulgarian branche.

I do not know what the banks will do.

Finally the EUR - I believe ECB will print, not as crazy as FED (USD), so we will see inflation soon or later. However, it is VERY important what ECB will decide to do if some country "fell in bankrupsy". ECB may decide *not* to do anything, because EU is bunch of countries and ECB is not Austrian Central Bank so ECB is not obligated to help any country.

To understand this last centence, here you are the parallel with USA - (USA is a country. FED is USA Central bank. US states are like districts. So in USA, FED is obligated to "help" USA, so they will in most cases help the single state as well.

Thoughts...

In yesterday news I read:

President Obama on Thursday pulled back the curtain on his first detailed vision of the federal budget for the next 10 years. His outline includes an ambitious plan to reform health care, half of which would be paid for in great part by increasing the tax bite on high-income Americans. Obama has said repeatedly that his first fiscal plan would have a two-pronged mission: to reduce the $1 trillion-plus deficit and make big investments in the future

The quote again: to reform health care, half of which would be paid for in great part by increasing the tax bite on high-income Americans

My comment: Exactly those high-income Americans pay most of the taxes. Now may be, just may be, they will began to "shrink" their businesses (I prefere not to use word "contract"), and finally to pay less taxes.

Here another one:

President Barack Obama is anticipating a new $750 billion bank bailout this year, more than doubling the direct infusion of taxpayer money into the reeling financial sector

My comment: Auch!!!

Dow / Gold ratio update

Dow just hit 7,114.78 USD

This level is unseen since 1997 or so.
US market unfortunately is poised for trading down, since there are no "clear" support @ lower levels.

Dow / Gold ratio = 7.18

Zimbabwe trade with gold now...




Is very sad.

BUT besides is sad, this give us one interesting conclusion.

It took several years until inflation in Zimbabwe to became hyperinflation.
Then it took some 4-5 years years before they to begin to use gold as currency.

One may ask if gold is the root of all evel?

Thoughts

I was guest in a friends family. The man working in a bank (I guess you can call him a banker). He recenly move his money in government bonds (which is unusual for Bulgaria), so we began a conversation for the eventual deflation or inflation in Bulgaria and in USA. His comment was

he - "How you can tell me that money supply in USA grows, when their staistics show lower CPI and PPI?"
me - "do you believe the data?"
he - "Yes, is official data"
me - "Have you ever hear or saw shadowstats.com website?"
he - "No, what is it"
me - "Is alternative measure of CPI, according Carter's staistical institute. Have you ever try to find oppinions if US CPI is correct or understated/overstated"
he - "No"
me - "Then why do you think is correct"
he - "Because is official".

Later I give him a chart of gold price from 1800 to 2000 year, and I understood that he do not understand what gold standard is - according to him gold standard is when you have commodity - gold, and gold price fluctuating against the currency, and central bank gives you gold according todays exchage rate.

Now I agree, that the situation is much more worse, than I anticipated, aslo obviously gold is not money.

What's up with gold - one week later...

Week ago I wrote What's up with gold .
now is time to post an update.


Gold weekly - horizontal support/resistanceHere we have fibo levels and price do not YET broke previous high - 988 USD.
One note here - I always said previous high is ~960, because I never needed correct value, but this chart gives extreme maximum 988 USD.

So target now is 988 USD, then ~1,040 USD (will see correct value when time comes).


Gold weekly
Here we have not much change from previous report - What's up with gold .
However @ 988 we have the brown channel top. So as of previous chart $988 is good target.


Gold dailyHere we have confirnmation that the pink channel is not correct.

Brown lines show correct channel. Note there are 2 upper lines. I believe the thick line is correct one. However there is possibility thin line to be the one that is correct.

Targets here are 970 USD from the thin line and ~988 USD from thick line.


Alexa - Gold Mania Barometer
This is how much traffic website Kitco gets. I calculated it several days ago. We are at the red dot - 0.075 - traffic raise over May.2008 high, but is not something extraordinary.

What's up with gold.

Something happen with gold :)
Besides fundamentals, which I believe are very important, let's see the technical situation.


Weekly :

Blue lines shows a triangle, that was broken week or so ago. The brown lines show rising channel, which we will show on daily chart.

Pink lines show the bottom of the 2006 correction and the top of 2008, when gold hits ~ $1,040. The 2006 high ($740) is exactly at Fibonaci level of 38.2%. There is no other significant supports / resistances at other Fibo levels.


Daily, horizontal supports:
I usually do not pay that much attention to horizontal support / resistance levels. However, gold just *broke* the previous high from OCT.2008 (tested week ago too). Obviusly, the high from DEC.2008 and JAN.2009 - ~ $890 working as a support, and was already tested 2-3 times.


Daily:
Now, the daily chart. We have rising channel. Brown and Pink lines shows different way we can "construct" the channel.

Brown lines have more connecting "dots". If this is the correct way, then the channel is not yet broken.

If Pink lines describing the channel, then channel is broken, and we will see *sharp raise* in gold prices next couple of days.

Because we spoke purely technically, there is third very very low possibility - *bearish* one. Upper line is the Pink one, and bottom line is the Brown one. In such case we have *rising bearish wedge* with target middle $600's. However I do not believe so, also the wedge is *broken* on the "wrong" side already.
Conclusion: Gold raise is due ;)
