Season's Greetings to Everyone!

Wishing you all the best for the coming New Year! My unending hope for the Filipino people is for them to finally end the culture of impunity in the country by selecting the rightful leaders in the coming 2010 elections. Let us choose a leader who will not throw us back into the quagmire of the old 'trapo' politics. Let us not choose a leader who spends billions in campaign funds just to get elected - he will somehow try to recoup his investments at our expense if he wins! Let us not choose a leader who is willing to cuddle and huddle with both the extreme left and the extreme right just to be elected... it just reflects his greed for power and his resolve to get elected at all cost! Just imagine what he can do once he holds sway of the corridors of power. Cheers!

Noynoy Aquino's Platform Of Government

Many things have been said about Noynoy Aquino having no clear cut platform of governance. This is absolutely not true. One needs to view Noynoy's political orientation in the light of the unfinished tasks of the EDSA Revolution that toppled the Marcos dictatorship. Even her mother, Cory Aquino who served as the transition president for one term after the martial law regime knew that the path to the full restoration of genuine democracy after twenty years of repressive rule by Marcos knew that the path to full recovery will be a long continuing process...and required that the subsequent leaders at the helm of government would have the same spirit, the same unrelenting determination, the same thirst for justice and freedom, the same yearning to cleanse our bureaucracy of graft and corruption, the same drive to curtail selfish political ambitions and promote utmost public interest. History will bear truth to the fact that this did not happen after Cory Aquino's term. Instead a consistently regular pattern of backsliding into corrupt ways evident during the Martial law era ensued...and became more evident and blatant (even wrapped up with unsurpassed level of impunity) during the 9n years of Arroyo administration. Because of this,the need to continue the forgotten tasks of EDSA 1 has become the foremost task which whoever comes out of 2010 election need to face.

Unfortunately, among the presidential candidates, only Noynoy remains to be the only presidential candidate who will be approaching the task of nation building with the correct and proper continue the unfinished tasks of EDSA!

Noynoy has incorporated all these into a "Social Contract With The Filipino People", his own platform of government.

 There is currently a Foreign Affairs Resolution in the US Congress to Condemn  the Maguindanao Massacre sponsored by Congressman Howard Berman and Congressman Chris Smith. We are appealing to all of our blogger friends in the US to please contact their US Senators and Congresspersons to ask them to co-sponsor this critical resolution by Congressman Howard Berman Smith. This is absolutely vital if we hope to have any justice in this situation, given the recent imposition of martial law in the region and the culture of impunity in the country as a whole.  Do give them a call, or email them or send them a letter and urge them for their support.

December 10 Is World Human Rights Day! Heralding Arroyo's Human Rights Record

Today marks the anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) adopted on December 10, 1948 that set down the basic principles at the very heart of the human rights movement. The UDHR has enabled remarkable progress in human rights, inspiring international human rights standards, laws and institutions that have improved the lives of many around the world.

The day is a high point in the calendar of United Nations and is normally marked by both high-level political conferences and meetings and by cultural events and exhibitions dealing with human rights issues. Many non-profit organizations and human rights activists also schedule special events to commemorate the day. Look out for events in your community!

Forex Market Outlook: Strong Rally in the Cards For US Dollar

The job market, which was bleeding since January 2008, seems to have hit the bottom, with the economy losing very few jobs in November. The retreat of the jobless rate should add to the comfort. In reaction, oil is climbing and the safe haven gold, which has been having a scintillating run in recent weeks, is giving back some ground.

The Labor Department’s monthly non-farm payroll employment report showed that the economy lost 11,000 jobs in November, notably lower than the 111,000 jobs shed in the previous month. . Economists had estimated a loss of 114,000 jobs. October’s job loss was initially estimated at 190,000. At the same time, the unemployment rate edged down to 10% in November from 10.2% in October. Average hourly earnings rose 0.05% to $18.74.

Friday’s Nonfarm payrolls really surprised investors. Analysts were expecting a decline in jobs by 130 thousand while the publication showed only a drop by 11 thousand! The news caused high volatility on the currency markets. The EUR/USD instantly tumbled all the way to $1.4945 and this was the first positive reaction of the dollar to better than expected macro news. Affected were also emerging markets’ currencies including the Złoty, which appreciated very quickly.

The employment situation in the US has been dire since the onset of the worst financial crisis in decades, even as other parts of the economy have shown signs of coming around. With Friday's data suggesting the jobs market may be on the mend, the Fed may be compelled to lift interest rates from near zero sooner than previously imagined. 
The Japanese yen was the most hurt currency after these data instead of the greenback this time as the greenback interest rate outlook has improved after the data. USD JPY closed the week well above 90 psychological level and in spite of the European currencies losing versus the greenback they could make new highs of the week versus the Japanese yen EURJPY close the week at 134.34, GBPUSD at 148.82 and CHFJPY at 89

Forex Trading: Today's Dollar Outlook 12/04/09

 The dollar fell to a 14-year low of 84.81 yen on Friday last week. The market continued to extend declines to fresh multi-year lows since breaking below the recent 2008/2009 matched trend lows at 87.15. There is technically no real support now until 79.75 which represents the 1995 historic lows, and a retest of this level can not be ruled out at this point with the overriding trend so intensely bearish .However, daily charts are indicating a possible correction from oversold territories, and the shorter-term risks seems to favor additional upside back towards the 88.50-89.00 area before considering the possibility for another round of weakness below the recent 84.80 trend low. On top of that, after the dollar's decline to 84.81 level last Friday,  Japanese officials mentioned intervention as a possibility in order to weaken the yen. This temporarily put a plug on further dollar declines against the yen.  But this week's action - plans to offer about 10 trillion yen ($115.8 billion) in short-term loans to commercial banks to boost liquidity and maintaining the key interest rate at 0.1 percent - could help weaken the yen without resorting to selling the currency, analysts said.

U.S. non-farm payrolls are will be released today, Friday, December 4, 2009.  It is expected to contract to125K in November, which would be the smallest decline since March 2008, while the annual rate of employment is forecasted to hold at the 26-year high of 10.2%. From  the data, investors will definitely weigh the prospects for a sustainable recovery.

In anticipation of this Friday's data, we have seen a rise in risk aversion yesterday which drove the dollar higher as it continues to benefit from safe-haven flows.

Trading this Friday's data actually favors a bearish outlook for the greenback as economists anticipate the labor market to weaken further however, price action following an enhanced employment report could set the stage for a long dollar trade.

My Top Entrecard Droppers For November

A big thanks to all those who have dropped their cards on Traders' Hub. This time around, instead of rewarding only 20 of my monthly top droppers, I am increasing it to thirty because for this month, 30 carders did not miss a single day to drop their cards on my blog. I know they do not expect any form of reward for what they did, but for whatever it is worth, I am sending each one of them 500 EC's each as a token of my appreciation.

They are all dyed-in-the-blood drop-a-holics. Include them in your daily droplist and they will surely reciprocate every visit you make on their blogs!
