Filed in silver by on October 4, 2010 0 Comments

Chinese state oil company China Petroleum & Chemical Corp. (Sinopec) (NYSE ADR: SNP ) said Friday that it would invest $7.1 billion in the Brazilian unit of Spain’s Repsol YPF S.A. (NYSE ADR: REP ) to form one of the largest private energy companies in Latin America. The investment is the second-largest overseas purchase by a Chinese company and drives the market capitalization of Repsol’s Brazilian arm up to $17.8 billion. Analysts estimated the company’s value at $10.7 billion earlier this year. Sinopec’s investment gives it a 40% stake in Repsol’s Brazil business, and access to the highly valued Brazilian offshore sub-salt oil fields.

Daily Forecast : September 10

Daily Forecast : September 10

EURUSD Forecast: The EURUSD slipped below my trend line support earlier today in Asian session as you can see on my h4 chart below. This fact could be seen as the end of technical bullish correction and trigger further bearish pressure testing 1.2588 and 1.2523 region. Immediate resistance at 1.2700. Break above that area and a movement back above the trend line support could lead us into neutral zone in nearest term as direction would become unclear even could produce a false breakdown scenario which could trigger upside pressure testing 1.2764 (yesterday’s high). Fundamental focus today is on French Industrial Production. A disappointing result could push the pair lower. On the other hand, a good result could give support to the Euro but overall I think Euro zone is still in negative territory and the major scenario remains to the downside. GBPUSD Forecast: The GBPUSD also had a significant technical move earlier today in Asian session, slipped below the bullish channel as you can see on my h4 chart below. This fact could trigger further bearish pressure testing 1.5340 and 1.5296 as the bullish correction could end here, especially if break below 1.5370. Another movement back inside the bullish channel could lead us into neutral zone as direction would become unclear, produce a false breakdown scenario and keep the bullish correction intact re-testing 1.5475 and 1.5531. Fundamental focus today is on the UK PPI Input. A disappointing result could push the pair lower. On the other hand, a good result could give support to the Sterling but overall the major scenario remains bearish. USDJPY Forecast: The USDJPY attempted to push lower yesterday, bottomed at 83.49 but closed higher at 83.77 and keep moving higher earlier today in Asian session, hit 84.28. Like I said yesterday, the rejection from 83.35 historical level could produce bearish exhaustion and price is making a new bullish channel after rebound from that support. The bias is bullish in nearest term testing 84.82 and the trend line resistance. Break above that area could be seen as a beginning of a new bullish phase at least in nearest term. On the downside, only a break below 83.35 could continue the bearish scenario. USDCHF Forecast The USDCHF bearish pressure was stopped and corrected

Filed under: International Markets , Newsletters , Mutual Funds “I’m now spotting an opportunity with Templeton Global Income Fund ( GIM ) — a closed end fund that is run by one of the finest international bond managers, Dr. Michael Hasenstab,” says Richard Band . (Incidentally, Richard Band has just earned his own accolades; his Profitable Investing advisory was just named the nation’s #1 financial newsletter for editorial excellent for 2010 by SIPA, the newsletter industry trade association.) Band continues, “In recent months, as we all know, fears of a pan-European sovereign-debt crisis have knocked down the euro. “What many investors don’t realize, though, is that the panicky selling has also spilled over into the Asian currencies. They’ve fallen against the dollar, even though most Asian countries remain on a rock-solid financial footing.
