John Taylor Says He Is Now Long The USD As Of A Week Ago

Tyler Durden's picture


John Taylor is again making the media rounds, following last week's CNBC appearance in which his punchline is that next year was going to be "truly miserable", today he was on Bloomberg continuing his thesis of how doom and gloom will be with the US for a long, long time, and that courtesy of no QE3, risk is about to go bidless (he differs with the Zero Hedge outlook only on whether there will be QE 3 or not). His response to what an environment of no fiscal or monetary stimulus (in case it was not clear): it is bullish for the JPY, bullish for the USD, bearish for commodities and bearish for stocks. More importantly, in terms of timing, Taylor says that after being short the dollar, he went long a "week and a half ago" and expects a big upside USD catalyst in the next "3 or 4 days." which he follows up with the cryptic: "Our analysis of the markets has shown that they are very, very dangerous." Another trade that JT has on is a long JPY, short EUR - the reason for the EUR bearishness is that Taylor is very "confused" by the second European bailout. As for his long USd conviction, it is based on his belief that the market appears to believe that QE 3 is coming, and that once it is made clear that there will be no further monetary easing (good luck with that), the dollar will surge, following a slowdown in the economy, and a shortage of dollars.

We will see about QE3.  Whether a socialism of the risk of the elite onto the backs of the masses is called expressly QE3 or not, I believe strongly that it will happen.  Since the political will is generated by the elite, theirs is the voice that will be heard.

When the USD gets bought, where do you think those dollars will get parked?

Any severe downdraft in equities, etc. will be VERY bullish for US T-notes.

Just the opposite.  The ending of QE will insure money flow into US Gov debt.  Commodities and equities get punished, the 'risk off' means that the dollar makes a big run as money flows back into dollars and bonds.  1 + 1 = 2.

what dollars?

The leverage will be repaid...there will be a collapse in credit.  The dollars outstanding will vaporize.  That is deflation.

There won't be enough dollars to bid USTs up and the auctions cannot self-fund.

Those who expect an increase in the value of the currency of a bankrupt sovereign are going to be in for a rude awakening.

by any reasonable measure the USD is still in a down trend long term[s218820698]&disp=P

even short term the dollar is still selling off[s218820698]&disp=P

Ill wait for clear signs of a bounce or an international fiscal explosion before going long

The end of QE would be a default on the debt- who buys bonds or the dollar in that scenario? People still need commodities- the shortages still exist. Equities would get trashed, but they have been due for 20% re-tracement for awhile. 

This is a timing play by the Elites. Dress up tragedy to get QE3 and put her on parade.

I believe Jim Rickards adroitly addressed this in his recent interview on King World News:


Basically the bailed out banks have no choice but to continue buying treasuries because that was the condition of the bailouts.  It is easy for the treasury to "persuade" primary buyers to buy since they would not be solvent today were it not for the government backing.

I think he is right in the short term. Dollar strenghten v. other paper currencies as QE2 fades and no QE3 immediately appears.

Then - next crisis - and QE3, 4, 5 ,6.......

Politically QE3 won't happen right away. How soon it will be when it does, I am not sure but in the mean time I can see a higher dollar, much lower rates then the next round of printing and debasement.

I personally dumped almost all my meager investments in stocks etc and bought treasuries and cash about a month ago (on top of physical gold and silver).

I think the ten yr can drop to 2.5% or even closer to 2% before the next big print. Then it will probably be print to infinity time.

I just hope that the commodity correction is strong enough to drive down the PM's far enough to provide a great buying range.  If the drop off in industrial demand doesn't temporarily crush silver, I'll be kicking myself for not buying more at today's prices.

So I'm long T-notes, gold/silver/platinum, and looking to unload the Treasuries during max pain in the risk assets markets and buy more PM's (and probably equities and high yield) at firesale prices.

Just be patient. Treasuries will continue to rally, dollar stonger, commodities down as everyone fears the great deflation.

But how can we possibly have real long term persistent deflation when no one works and the central banks will all be running the presses 24hrs a day?

It's going to be a head fake that gives us a buying opportunity if we're patient and awake.

In the meantime I'm still adding some PMs along the way because I am not arrogant enough to think I cannot be wrong, but I don't think I am. Sitting on a bunch of cash and biding my time.....

While I agree with his main points, I disagree about the strong dollar.  I still strongly believe there will be a time here shortly in which the dollar will lose it's Reserve status and people will flee like roaches when the light is turned on.  Before this happens however, the long awaited 'paradigm' shift will happen (i.e. Mega-Robo Black Swan event) -- whatever that might be.

There are too many CBs colluding for that to happen that quickly; they are all in dollars too.  I believe it is a matter of time but it just won't be as sudden as some would like.  I've been telling people about the end of dollar hegemony for years now but as you can see it's just not going to be an "event" it will be a series of long slow happenings.

When 'strong dollar' is mentioned, it is usually defined as being strong vis-a-vis other currencies, mainly euro, in which case he maybe right. However, ultimately dollar being strong vs euro is highly irrelevant since euro is fundamentally flawed itself. Dollar will weaken in terms of purchasing power (so as other currencies, only slower), even if with a short break for another run-from-the-risk cycle. There is no way to sustain dollar reserve status in the long run, the only thing that keeps it as a reserve currency is the allmighty force projection, which also has its limits.

Tell Mr. Taylor that the dollar's strength is transitory, being indicitive of a move down through Exeter's Pyramid. Of course, this flow of monetizing financial paper will serve only to undermine any remaining capacity for the dollar to act as a long-term wealth storage system, and wealth will move through it into a superior meduim, gold.

But I bet he already knows that.

So he places his bets on a "feeling" ?

He doesn't know what it is, but he bets some millions on the dollar for some reason becoming stronger within 3-4 days ?

Huh ?


Has he stumbled across a chart pattern that we still don't know of ?

Or is it a combination of technical indicators like the ominous Hindenburg omen that makes him think so ?


Or the recent barrage of hits concerning NFP, ADP, SNAP, ISM and so on ?

I mean feel-based trading is not very lucrative, to say the least.

Taylor is signaling that he has some (insider?) information that he can’t get specific about.
The timing (3-4 days) shows that he believes he has credible, actionable information.
My guess is Taylor thinks he has been tipped off to a Eurozone problem in 3-4 days.

But why does he think that QE will end, I don’t know.
How can it end now? We should not have ever even started it, then, if we are just going to end it now.

How about this: He's awaiting the news of the Greek situation which should come out sometime this week, they can't play kick-the-can forever. The DXY should react to this and maybe pop above 74 where I think that it could be a buy. Awaiting confirmation that is all. I see about a 15% drop in the DXY if he's wrong. He needs to be wrong at some point. Made some great calls though. But during the whole interview he was all " I think" "maybe" let's not forget this dude is a Goldmanite.

I am pretty sure the Fed will keep buying Treasuries from whomever wants to sell them at inflated prices no matter what they call it.  The only bet I am actually willing to make is continued debasement of the currency, whether it is reflected in Treasury prices or not.  I guess my point is the Fed and Treasury have probably figured out they cant stop feeding money into the ponzi scheme too.

Dear James,

The United States may be about to let oil giant TransCanada build 1,702 miles of pipeline -- they call it “Keystone XL” -- to funnel highly toxic tar sands from Alberta, Canada, all the way to refineries in Texas and Louisiana.

The only person standing between TransCanada and its plan to corrupt the American Midwest and vulnerable Gulf Coast in the name of oil profits is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who can either approve or deny the Presidential Permit needed to cross the US-Canada border. 

Today is the very last day for public comments on the project. Please click here to sign the petition now, opposing the pipeline.

Keystone XL would endanger pristine areas of Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, and Louisiana -- as well as the Ogallala Aquifer, the largest source of water for drinking and crop irrigation in the country.

TransCanada claims the pipeline will be safe, but they said that last time, too.

When TransCanada was hammering through approval for their first pipeline, they swore the pipeline would only leak “every seven to eleven years” -- but its pumping stations have had 12 spills in just the last year. Last Friday, the U.S. Department of Transportation had to order TransCanada to shut down the pipeline because of ongoing safety concerns.

Right now, oil companies are pulling out all the stops to urge Secretary Clinton to permit this disastrous new tar sands pipeline.

Fight back against TransCanada and protect American health and safety. Public opposition is the only way to convince Secretary Clinton to stop the pipeline, so please sign the Sierra Club’s petition today:

Thanks for taking action,

- Patrick and the team

IF Bernanke makes the point this year, just like last year, of making stocks suffer through Q3 to help create the narrative for more QE then we will likely see a sub 2.3 print on the 10yr before Labor Day.  Combine this with still greater flows out of the PIIGS domestic banking systems, EUR sovereign risk, EUR/CHF continues flaming, redemption's from JPY to fund domestic operations, continued inflation driven slowing in China  and no let up in ag and the 2 print on the 10 if not before the Labor Day holiday, then Columbus Day in the US is in the cards.  If this fails to rekindle the animal spirits in US RRE Bill Gross's marginal trades should be made money good. 

Meanwhile, Baltic dry, HY corporates (especially in Europe), industrial commodities and RRE (especially in Asia & the US) are going to have some rough sledding this summer.

There is absolutely now way to stop QE because the deflation process will be absolutely brutal and very sudden.  It isn't in the interest of the banksters to deflate their assets nor the serfs to lose another 50% of their home's value.  These people all think in nominal terms.  Everything is going to crash either way; the path of least resistant is to continue inflating until the dollar collapses.  Party until the walls fall off or sober up and start rebuilding?  I think we know which choice America will take.

JT is obviously not that strong on market timing then,if he shorted the E/$ a week and a half ago,he is down over 300 pips already. Ireland,Greece and Portugal are all bust and the Euro is exploding higher against the terminal British pound and the Emergency Room dollar.How much is left to the upside if the Greek bailout is sorted in the next couple of weeks?

Several sales reps I know have commented recently how eerily quiet the motorways are over here in England,unusually quiet for no apparent reason.None other than a complete collapse of what is left of the UK economy,that has yet to be reported by the mainstream media who are always late and never really give the real reasons behind events.

More QE is required by the Bank of England,they will just print it up,no reference to or permission required from the Treasury,the Fed as we all on ZH know, is quite happy for the stockmarket to decline and the economy to deflate to the point where congress will literally beg them to initiate QE3,in the process removing all blame and pointing out to any critics that they were only responding to the crisis and the demands of congress.

They got way too greedy.  Instead of pumping things just enough to be able to handle the deflation and buy the proceeding dip, they've created a credit and fiat bubble they can't escape.  Deflating the bubble will be so violent it will create massive civil unrest and a mass awaking which is bad for bankster  business.  Extend and pretend until you can't anymore, I see no other option for TPTB.

this is what makes the trade. with all eyes on the us treasury/fed i don't think they can do QE3 under the light of the sun. its only in the dark that roaches proliferate.

  How can Taylor be long usd, and long yen @ the same time?  I suppose he's long usd/chf as well. Nothing like catching a falling knife!

Nicole Foss makes a persuasive argument that there will be no need for QE3 because Europe will blow soon and flight to safety will support $USD. I suspect JT is anticipating same thing. They both seem to think this will be bad for gold because people covering equity margins will sell gold. I disagree. Not all flight to safety will go to $USD, some people with brains will also flee to gold and it won't take much to offset those selling gold to cover margins.

p.s. When I heard about meeting between German and US heads of state this week my antenna twitched.

toilet paper to surge? well given the number of RMB accounts opened in HK banks funded with short dollar trades, you have to wonder whether this is the reverse transfer of wealth that Ben and his masters have in mind. In any case if Taylor is right, then alot of people would be jumping from high rises across asia.

"The cycle has turn"? "There's a shortage of dollars in the world"?! Mr. Taylor, apparently we live in parallel worlds.

The only reasonable interpretation of that babbling may be that he counts on the sheep being dumb enough to miss QE3 once it has arrived because it will be disguised as something other than the good old outright POMO, thus triggering a panicky response. Going long market stupidity is a risky (if often profitable) business, and it sure does have its limitations.
