2010 Fifa World Cup: the experience

first_imgEveryone who visited South Africa for the 2010 Fifa World Cup™ was bowled over by the warmth of the welcome they received, the quality of the country’s facilities, the richness of its attractions – and the sheer energy running through Africa’s first Fifa World Cup. Here are just some of the stories we ran:A World Cup to rememberThe 2010 Fifa World Cup concluded in fine style on Sunday, with the Spanish national side raising the coveted trophy as champions for the first time. As the curtain fell on the historic event, fans reflected on what made the tournament so special for them. Mandela magic at Soccer CityMandela magic was broadcast around the world as over half a billion people watched South Africa’s former president, Nelson Mandela, make his way onto the pitch of Johannesburg’s Soccer City moments after the closing ceremony of the 2010 Fifa World Cup. South Africa’s closing ceremony dazzlesA sell-out crowd inside Johannesburg’s Soccer City Stadium as well as an audience of hundreds of millions across the globe were wowed by a colourful ceremony on Sunday night to celebrate the successful conclusion of a memorable first Fifa World Cup on African soil. People power reigns at Fan FestsDarkness fell hours ago, and the crowd’s breath rises visibly through the winter air at Johannesburg’s InnesFree Park. Yet Chuma is drenched in sweat. And no wonder. For the past two-and-a-half hours, the 27-year-old has been leading friends and strangers, locals and tourists in an indefatigable display of singing and dancing at this lively Fifa Fan Fest. Video: ‘It’s been life-changing’Being in South Africa during the 2010 Fifa World Cup has been “nothing but life-changing”, says Blaise Hossain from Los Angeles, California, citing the “genuine warm, inviting and rich culture that every South African embodies in very different ways.” Walking Cape Town’s Fan MileCape Town’s three-kilometre Fan Mile from the city centre to the majestic Green Point Stadium has become a hit with international fans, offering a fusion of cultures, a melting pot of different nationalities, and a place for supporters to congregate en route to the stadium. Dutch explore their African heritageThe Western Cape, and Cape Town in particular, have been inextricably linked with Holland since 1652, when Jan van Riebeeck landed in the Cape of Good Hope. Last week, the Cape experienced its second Dutch invasion, as fans of “Die Oranje” took the opportunity to explore their historical connection to South Africa. Durban a hit with World Cup fansSouth Africa’s “Surf City” was the place to be on Friday as fans streamed in by the thousands for one of the most anticipated matches of the 2010 Fifa World Cup group stages, Brazil versus Portugal. While the match itself did not live up to the hype, the city of Durban certainly did. The world comes to Nelson Mandela BayDespite its famous namesake Nelson Mandela Bay, comprising Port Elizabeth and its surrounding areas, often misses out on international events, which tend to go the way of Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. But that is all changing as a result of the 2010 Fifa World Cup. Portuguese wow young fansAfter three disappointing draws, Cape Town got the wake-up call it had been waiting for on Monday as Portugal thrilled a 63 644-strong Green Point Stadium crowd with a seven-goal sizzler. For seven-year-old Tanzeel Gamieldien, however, the highlight of the match came before kick-off. World Cup ‘bringing people together’Black people, white people, rich people, poor people, locals, foreigners – at places like Lucky’s Bar in Phokeng township outside Rustenburg, South Africa’s unique Fifa World Cup is bringing people from all walks of life together. Mexico sets Polokwane alightMexico and France met at the Peter Mokaba stadium in Polokwane on Friday in a night that rocked the World Cup host city. For the local spectators, it was a match that made them realise that the World Cup party had well and truly arrived in Polokwane. Durban captivates Dutch supportersTheir outfits were bright, mesmerising and went perfectly with their sunny disposition … the Dutch fans invaded Durban on the weekend, both to support their team in a 2010 Fifa World Cup match and to soak up the the wonderful weather and atmosphere that the city has to offer. African welcome wins players’ heartsWhatever their fortunes on the pitch, players from the competing nations at the 2010 Fifa World Cup are enjoying the experience off it. The temperatures might be low, but the visiting teams are feeling the warmth of the African spirit. Serbian fan uses World Cup to proposeSerbian fans were thrilled by their team’s 1-0 victory over Germany on Friday. There was love in the air: for the national team, for the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium – and, for one supporter, love for someone back home. Mbombela Stadium: wild by designIt may have been freezing elsewhere in the country, but when Honduras and Chile met each other head-on at Nelspruit’s World Cup opener on Wednesday, it was in glorious sunshine – and in the World Cup’s quirkiest stadium. Cup visitors enchanted by South AfricaThe world’s attention is focused on the southern tip of Africa as the greatest football showpiece plays itself out on the fields and in the streets of South Africa. But once the final whistle has blown on 11 July, it seems as though a lot of happy fans will be coming back to the country. A Rainbow World Cup journeyMaxwell Valenkamp, a Dutch national whose mother is Ghanaian, takes the train from Johannesburg to Pretoria to watch Ghana play Serbia, explaining along the way what Africa’s first Fifa World Cup means to him, and why you could call it the ‘Rainbow World Cup’. Orange Army get the party startedDutch fans are renowned for their flair off the pitch – wigs, clogs, dungarees, face-paint and flags all play a part in their arsenal. Clad from head to toe in bright orange, the Netherlands supporters ensured that Johannesburg’s Soccer City was even more orange than usual during their match against Denmark on Monday afternoon. Port Elizabeth does Mandela proudThe friendly city of Nelson Mandela Bay/Port Elizabeth gave thousands of football fans – as well as Local Organising Committee CEO Danny Jordaan – an exuberant welcome as the first World Cup match kicked off at its new stadium on Saturday. Fans paint Rustenburg red, white, blueIt was all systems go in Rustenburg on Saturday night as football’s version of the American Revolution played out in front of nearly 48 000 fans at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium. World Cup Fan Fests come aliveIt was not just the 84 490 fans seated in Johannesburg’s Soccer City stadium that celebrated the start of Africa’s historic World Cup. Aside from the estimated 500-million global television viewers, more than 400 000 fans celebrated at the 16 official Fan Fests and other public viewing areas both in South Africa and abroad. World Cup off to colourful startMore than 84 000 people witnessed the dawn of a new chapter in South Africa’s history when the 2010 Fifa World Cup kicked off in true African style at Johannesburg’s Soccer City Stadium. Soccer City welcomes the world homeAs Johannesburg’s flagship Soccer City stadium seethed in a mass of yellow and brightly coloured flags, the hum of tens of thousands of vuvuzelas was suddenly overcome as Gripen Fighter jets burst overhead. Africa’s first Fifa World Cup was opening in spectacular fashion.last_img read more

In This Issue   President calls for a strike

first_imgIn This Issue. *  President calls for a strike. *  Gold gets whacked again! *  RBNZ meets tonight, is this Wheeler’s chance? *  Mogambo calls me JMR Chuck! And, Now, Today’s Pfennig For Your Thoughts! 9/11, 12 years later. Good day.  And A Wonderful Wednesday to you! It’s September 11. Our second day of infamy. Even 12 years later, the images are still fresh in our minds. I think about our “intervention” in the Middle East a lot, and often wonder if we had stayed out of it all, if we would have been left alone. But, that’s water under the bridge now, what’s done is done, let’s just hope and pray that we never experience an attack on our soil like that day 12 years ago, ever again! Well, the President “talked to us” last night. We’re you moved? The President told us that “acting against the Assad regime is in the U.S.’s national interest.”  Well, at this point the vote in the House of Representatives has been delayed until we see what happens to Syria’s volley that they will comply with the request from Russia to hand over their chemical weapons. Let’s hope that all happens, and we can quit our saber rattling. At first last night, the dollar took off and rallied on the President’s speech. The reports this morning say the markets took what the President had to say as the strike was still on, and traded to safe havens accordingly. But then, the water temperature changed and all the risk asset bulls got back into the water, and this morning, we’re basically sitting where we left off yesterday afternoon. Gold really got whacked yesterday, and I have to ask the price manipulators this question. Do you really think the public is falling for this story of there being no need for safe havens and that’s why Gold’s price is falling? Because if you do believe that, you’ve got it all wrong! We all know exactly what’s going on here! We’ve read the Wikileaks cable, We’ve heard from former U.S. Treasury official, Paul Craig Roberts, and Chuck has described how if it were you’re job to defend the value of the dollar, and you saw Gold soaring in price, and everyone trading their dollars for Gold, what would you do?  So, we get it! We just want it to stop! The Aussie dollar (A$) climbed above 93-cents yesterday, and remains there this morning. Yesterday it was the latest Consumer Confidence Index rising to a 3-year high that pushed the A$ higher, and today it should drift a bit, given that tonight Australia will print their latest Labor report. It is thought that the Labor report will be soft. But I have to say that given all the upside improvement in the data that’s printed lately, there could be a surprise in the Labor report this evening. That would go a long way toward providing more wind for the A$’s sails. Australia’s kissin’ Cousin across the Tasman, New Zealand will have the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) meet tonight. This could be the sounding board that RBNZ Gov. Wheeler is looking for to halt the rise in kiwi that we’ve seen lately. He’ll have to really take aim at kiwi to get that done, because I expect the RBNZ to keep rates unchanged, and keep their tightening bias in place. This what the markets expect, so by doing what they expect, there will be no bias to buy or sell kiwi. That’s where Wheeler might step in. So, watch for that tonight, and be careful out there! Did you hear what Jeffrey Gundlach, who manages $36 Billion in the DoubleLine Total Return Bond Fund said about what the Fed is doing?  This is interesting. He said that, “U.S. Federal Reserve is making a big mistake in the way it ends its unprecedented asset-purchase program. We thought the Fed wouldn’t walk away from QE and would buy securities until targeted yields were reached like in Japan and Europe. Instead, the central bank is opting for a seat of the pants way of handling policy.” Chuck again. For someone that claims to have never liked QE to begin with, he sure sounds bitter that it’s ending, eh?  For me, I never thought that monetizing our debt was the way out of the depression. But then, I’m not a Fed Head, and I didn’t have multiple years of economics education. Instead, I feared that by monetizing our debt (bond buying) that we had simply taken another step toward our turning Japanese. And then when we went back to the well, for two more rounds of bond buying, we were turning Japanese faster and faster.   It will be interesting to see how this all plays out, eh? I truly believe that it won’t be pretty. Well. the last 3 months, have been good to a few currencies. which is strange given that it was just a little over 3 months ago that Big Ben Bernanke first uttered the “tapering” word. If you recall that time, the currencies and metals got whacked in one big swoop. But then, as things settled down in the days following, and more and more analysts came around to Chuck’s view, the currencies and metals began to rebound, and now, one week before the Fed meets to discuss tapering, it appears that the currencies just don’t care. Septaper or no Septaper doesn’t seem to be bothering the currencies. In fact in recent trading the direction of the currencies has been tied more closely to the goings on Syria than Septaper. So, let’s step back and think about this for a minute. We have the possibility of a diplomatic resolution in Syria, and the very small possibility of the Fed delaying tapering. That would be a perfect storm against the dollar folks. I think with everyone on the side of the ship that’s calling for Septaper, that the risk is there that the Fed delays the decision, basing that delay on the recent data. One of the better performing currencies in this time that we’re talking about has been the U.K. pound sterling. Pretty amazing to me that the pound can muster any liking to it, given the rot on the U.K. economic vine. But things have been looking up here, and recent data has been constructive. For example, yesterday, the U.K. printed their latest labor data, and this data continued the steady stream of better than expected reports. The Unemployment rate in the U.K. dropped to 7.7% from 7.8%. The Unemployment rate in the U.K. seems to be on a downward plane right now, so they’ve got that going for them. I would just caution anyone getting all lathered up for the pound right now. I would bet that soon Bank of England (BOE) members would come out with statements to slow the pound’s rise, for the BOE doesn’t want to let the cart get before the horse here. But you know me. I just wish Central Banks would just leave the currency’s value to the markets. We would all be better off if Central Banks got out of the “thinking they know better what the currency’s value should be, rather than the markets” frame of mind. And that goes both ways. I don’t like to see intervention, period! Just had to stop to sing along, very loud I might add, with The Righteous Brothers song: Unchained Melody. That song sends chills up my spine every time! OK. I’m back now!  Both Chris and yours truly, met with some very nice customers yesterday that stopped by the office. The customer, who has been a Pfennig Reader for many years, asked me I still was in Norway’s corner like I’ve been for many years. Fair question. And the answer I gave was “yes”.  Norway has underperformed, as the Central Bank struggles with the tug-o-war between cutting rates to promote growth, and keeping rates steady to combat a housing bubble. But with growth looking like it is recovering in the Eurozone, that should go a long way toward helping the Norwegian economy recover. And then the Norges Bank’s struggles will turn to whether they need to hike rates! The fundamentals of Norway remain among the best in the world, and when the markets figure out that Norway’s fundamentals aren’t the Eurozone’s fundamentals, things should look to change here for the krone. I received an email yesterday from the Mogambo Guru himself! WOW! And he referred to me as: Junior Mogambo Ranger (JMR) Chuck! He thanked me for mentioning the new desk reference book titled: Economica Mogambo.  I simply went to Amazon and typed in: Mogambo Guru, but in case you want a link to take you right there, here you go! The Mogambo also thanked me for penning the Daily Pfennig, imparting wisdom in a deceptively easy-going style!   Yes, my letter can’t express myself like the Mogambo can in his. So, read him for the expressive style, and me for the easy-going! There. sounds like a plan! And then the euro continues to inch higher week by week. The German elections will be held soon, and one would think that this would be weighing heavily on the euro, but it appears to not be such a problem for the single unit. I guess, because right now, it appears that the incumbent German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, will hold on. German borrowing costs have reached a 2-year high, as I reported to you last week, and this has gone a long way toward supporting the euro. I just think that the really bad stuff is in the euro’s rear view mirror now. No they aren’t out of the woods, but at least they’re driving in that direction! And the U.S. data cupboard is basically bare today, with just some mortgage applications and Wholesale inventories data to deal with. The Big Kahuna data print this week will be August Retail Sales on Friday. The Back to School sales should support Retail Sales for this report, so expect a bump up, at least that’s what the Butler Household Index (BHI) tells me. OK. Before I head to the Big Finish. I thought I would share a funny with you. OK, all of you heard about how John McCain was caught playing poker on his Smartphone during proceedings last week.  Well, here’s Jay Leno with a different take. “Samsung has unveiled its new smartwatch. It will go on sale later this month in 140 countries. It’s a Smartphone wristwatch. Experts say this could revolutionize the way senators play poker at Senate hearings. “ For What It’s Worth. My friend, John Mauldin, has been talking about the new documentary called “Money For Nothing: Inside the Federal Reserve” for some time now, and last week it premiered. There was a short piece on the film in the Business Insider, that I found interesting so, here you go. “When you or I print money it’s called counterfeiting,” a commentator muses in a new documentary about the Federal Reserve. “When the Fed does it, it’s called monetary policy.” That documentary is Money For Nothing: Inside the Federal Reserve and that commentator was former St. Louis Fed Governor William Poole. Charting 100 years of Fed history, the film features an impressive collection of economic actors and thinkers: Paul Volcker, Janet Yellen, Jim Grant, Peter Atwater, John Mauldin, Barry Ritholtz, Gary Shilling, and others. It’s also narrated by the dulcet tones of Liev Schreiber. If Fahrenheit 9/11 was Michael Moore’s seminal repudiation of George W. Bush’s foreign policy, Money For Nothing is writer/director Jim Bruce’s similar critique of the history of the Federal Reserve.” Chuck again. Here’s the link should you want to read the full review.    The original look behind the scenes of what the Fed was doing, was done by Bill Fleckenstein in his book: Greenspan’s Bubbles: The Age of Ignorance at the Federal Reserve. I’ve talked about this book for years now, and it’s still sold on Amazon, if you realize now that you should have read it the first time I talked about it 5 years ago!  I think it is very important that people that invest money understand what the Fed does, can do, and doesn’t do, to affect their investments, good or bad. Maybe if everyone knew. To recap. The President talked to us last night in an attempt to convince us that a military strike on Syria was needed, and the currencies got sold. But then someone realized that the House had delayed their vote on the strike, and Syria accepted Russia’s plan to deal with this diplomatically, and the currency selling reversed, and we sit this morning where we left off yesterday afternoon. One week away from the Septaper announcement from the Fed, and the currencies don’t seem to care. What do they know that we don’t? Currencies today 9/11/13.
