Andrew Abraham

andy-0101 My name in Andrew Abraham. I have been investing in commodities and managed futures since 1994. I adhere to the philosophy of trend following. Trend following stresses a disciplined approach to commodity/ futures trading. Successful trend following and commodity futures investing requires patience, discipline and actively managing the risk. What sets me apart from other traders is that I am not only concerned about the return on investment but how much risk I will have to tolerate to achieve my goals.

The US Currency Too Big To Fail?

Last year in the midst of the economic debacle we learned that some banks were to big to fail. These banks were propped up on behalf of the central banks in fear of greater destruction in the worlds financial markets. Banks on both sides of the Atlantic were considered to big to fail. Is the US currency too big too fail?
The foreign exchange rates between the us currency and other currencies ( forex markets) has been falling since March. Is it possible that China with so much of her reserves would permit this to happen? China has been developing her own internal consumption market so possibly over time this could help them ease their reliance on the US currency. Without not even mentioning China there is the idea of flight to quality and the US currency is perceived as a safe haven ( But is it any more with all the debt from the bailouts?). Some say there is a tug of war between risk acceptance and risk aversion when trying to ascertain the strength of the US currency. Even with this said one day we could wake up and have groups of central banks prop up the US currency because it makes their curency too expensive and they are not able to export. Another thought possibly US currency weakness is exactly what the US wants. This makes exports cheaper and possibly more desirable. Foreign exchange rates are complex. Trading of forex should be considered only is spite of the inherent risks entailed.
Using a Donchian approach the US currency ( US dollar index) had a sell signal on Sep 2 at 78.09. The risk was to 79.01 based on a 1% risk of account size. Time will tell if this trade works or not, but the question … Is the US Currency too big to fail?
