Fed Said to Reverse Stance, Consider a Loan Package for AIG

By Erik Holm
Sept. 16 (Bloomberg) -- The Federal Reserve is considering extending a ``loan package'' to AIG the insurer facing a cash shortage, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.
The stance by federal regulators is a reversal from a position they held as late as last night, and people with knowledge of the talks are ``cautiously optimistic,'' said the person, who declined to be identified because negotiations are confidential.
The person gave no timetable for reaching an agreement or estimate on how much money New York-based AIG would need.

In that case the next G7 meeting on October 10-11 becomes key. Co-ordinated intervention is more likely now if the USD plunges as the next move in ECB interest rates is likely to be down. Thus G7 action on the USD would be in line with monetary policy changes

RenasHunter Sep 22, 2008 11:15am | Post# 19

EUR Look for test of 1.4696 near-term. A break would trigger fresh gains towards 1.4727

GBP Today's break of 1.8401 signals corrective bounce taking hold, with cable poised to retest 1.8590. A move beyond 1.8590 would confirm bullish resumption. Near term support 1.8265.

USDCHF Abrupt setback from 1.1280 pressures 1.0907, but only move below 1.0844 would threaten the broader guy still bull on this pair

JPY I hate this pair
