    Yeah you sure got that right! But I worry about everything

    What you said about Iran, also applies to America too.

    But you know what, for all the differences and posturing between governments, everywhere, there are very little differences between people, at least from my wee experience and observations. Their customs and cultures differ, but more importantly their basic values and aspirations have much in common. Why can’t we just all get along? Because too many “leaders” are aggressive sociopaths, egomaniacs or in need confrontation to distract from their policy failures… and also because too many people are ignorant (the way the leaders prefer it).

    So I oppose all national governments. They have failed humanity and inflicted massive suffering for way too long already. We need just one queen bee for all, like me

    This depicts a rising wedge that I've been following for some time now.

    To compare, here is the rising wedge for the GBP/JPY board I posted a while back( http://forexforums.dailyfx.com/yen-p...ml#post1088435 ):

    and the aftermath:

    The point is, wedges return to their base, and the USD won't be an exception. The USD is going to drop like a rock but only after it has gone up first (can anybody say "election ramp"? I knew you could!)
    Good stuff but isn't the “election ramp” supposed to be stocks-up-dollar-down; not dollar up ?

    At that dollar up-cycle peak 36 years ago, the US had been the world’s largest creditor nation for some 60 years, so the Fed could/did massively hike rates to combat inflation, which of course sent the dollar soaring.

    That was the long-cycle peak, and if you look at the long wave cycle of 60 or 51.6 years for currencies over the millennia, you will see we are still in the dollar slide phase, as per various long wave theories.

    Unfortunately today, as the largest creditor nation ever, the US is unable to absorb even tiny Interest rate increases, and the Fed is terrified of higher rates. Thus Fed ZIRP has been and will be a no-brainer until the US sov debt crisis hits the wall SPLAT (now inevitable per dozens of similar precedents over centuries as documented in Reinhart & Rogoff’s great book).

    That flush will be the end of the long wave down cycle and when the dollar (or the successor US currency) starts a new primary uptrend again. No sooner, notwithstanding the usual corrective waves of course.

    EUR/GBP Coming

    Okay, after GBP/AUD didn't reach its butterfly last night I zoomed in on this nice gartley with resistance on EUR/GBP. Shorts at .8422, this should be a good one. Attachment 120462

    I see it from a different perspective - I think the philosophy of Reaganism is poisonous to the American dollar, and until the US is purged of this ideology the dollar is at a serious risk. The upcoming election will be critical.

    Those who believe that the Fed won't raise rates because of the deficit don't really understand the US legal system. The US isn't going to face a sovereign crisis for the same reason the Europeans have been able to control their crisis. They default on their citizens not on the bond holders. it's already starting at the local level and the state level and it will likely occur at the federal level too. Take a look at the following article about a federal judge who let a municipality pay its bond holders in full while slashing pensions. it's good to be the bond market.
    Judge lets bankrupt US town slash pensions - FT.com

    But ultimately no one can predict the long term future - the concept that this is possible is a very Newtonian view of the universe, thinking that everything repeats itself in a perfect cycle. The laws of thermodynamics disprove much of that theory. So I don't know any more than anyone else and neither do Reinhart and Rogoff

    I posted last week a clear double HnS always on hourly tf, that seems to be ended just yesterday.
    Last but not least, with eurchf peg now the euro weight in the index is above 60%.

    Cheers from sunny southern italy

    Cheers - you are lucky to live in southern italy. I visited the Amalfi coast one time, it was the most beautiful place Ive ever seen. Maybe if the euro goes lower I can afford another trip to Italy

    Thank you very much for the charts and stuff... I will definitely look at it and consider and hope!
    We need a LOT more than 10134 ... That is still 6000 pips below where it was ten yrs ago.
    Anything below 1.25 is bad, considering 1.25 is widely considered to be the PPP value, and usdcad was 1.30 three years ago.
    Canada is facing an overdue major housing & debt deflation, similar to Australia now and the US for five years.
    Under the fundamental and tech circumstances, I hope for a lot more than 10134 ... but the saying is that hope is for losers
    Thanks again!

    It's very sad that you think the Americans don't really have any allies only enemies... But it may be true in many areas that people object to the policies of the US government and military although they don't really hate the American people. But the same is true of Iran... the present regime appears highly hostile and belligerent but I have met a few ex patriot Iranians living in the US who escaped after the Ayotollah took over and they say that most Iranian people do not agree with the actions of their government...

    The theme that civilization in inherently dehumanizing and that all governments are inherently malevolent and destructive is as old as the Bible and found in almost every science fiction horror movie ever made...

    But I like science fiction

    What you said about distinguishing between the people and the government… exactly! Fortunately, I think many people think that way… therefore in my wee experience & observation, individuals of all nationalities are usually well-received when visiting any other country regardless of the government relations. I already knew you are enlightened enough to understand the subtleties behind my reply, “What you said about Iran also applies to America” in response to your assertion that Iran has no allies, just enemies. Or else I would not have written it. The image of the US government has diminished in the last ten years for various reasons, and a rich superpower by its nature will have enemies and dubious allies of convenience. But the US and Canada have its “special relationship” with England. That is more than many other national governments have
