EUR/USD Moves Higher After Weak US GDP Release

Euro dollar took advantage of weak US data, as the pair climbed to the mid-1.32 level. United States GDP for Q1 posted an increase of 2.2%, disappointing the markets which had predicted a 2.5% increase. Last week’s bright spot for the US economy was the UoM Consumer Sentiment release, which posted a slight increase and posted its highest reading in over a year. On the continent, concerns continue…

Breaking Point, the end of the cheap energy economy

While all attention is on European debt problems, many forget what's going on in the rest of the world.

Interesting YouTube movie and article what it mean to the US Dollar, Gold, inflation,  etc.

Maybe old news but still reality.

EUR/USD Falls to Lower Range on Spanish Downgrade, Before US GDP

Euro dollar bounced off downtrend resistance and continued to lower ground. S&P downgraded Spain by two notches, just before unemployment jumped once again. Other European indicators don’t look good either. In the US, figures were mixed, but leaning lower. The focus is on the first release of GDP for Q1, which is expected to remind us of the economy’s strength before recent sluggishness. Will…

EURUSD Daily Outlook 27 Apr 2012

The EURUSD continued its bullish momentum yesterday bottomed at 1.3175, topped at 1.3262 and closed at 1.3191, but that bullish move was limited and the pair was rising with low momentum as shown on the daily and the 4 hour chart...

Today I assume massive bearish move testing at first the key support 1.3103 , losing this level would lead for the expected massive bearish move testing the key support 1.2994..

Immediate resistance is seen around the key resistance 1.3200 where…

Volatile moves for week end

EURO and GBP are held at higher levels and not making upward stop hunts after yesterday early European session,indicate that the players are holding high and booking profits .This may lead to week end eitherway moves - ie those taken higher level buys during rise might feel that the profit booking opportunity is not seen and come for long liquidation.Later those taken lower level shorts might come  for short covering every session close times.

So each session is expected to have…

How many counts can we find?

Hi all,

We had to do this exercise at the MTA, and it was surprising how many correct Elliott wave counts we could come up with.

If you feel like trying, take the picture, label the waves and upload it to the thread again.

Please, don't use the fact that there are more than one possible count to tear down Elliott- it's long time he passed away and it's our time to evolve the theory.…

Trend Following

Not all of us trading only Forex, but looking more around for trading opportunities.

Spreading risk over, for example the commodity markets, will reduche overall account risk.

Look at soyabeans which make most trend followers happy by just using the standard breakouts with correct stop discipline.

I love the beans !…

EURUSD Daily Outlook 26 Apr 2012

The EURUSD continued its bullish momentum yesterday , bottomed at 1.3172, topped at 1.3236 and closed above 1.3230...

After breaching above 1.3224 , I assume a bullish move today testing the key resistance 1.3240/270 , a clear break above this level would lead for more gains testing the key resistance 1.3330/360...

Immediate support is seen around 1.3200 where bounce back to the upside is expected , stability above 1.3170 is indeed to keep the bullish move suggested for today…

EURUSD Daily Outlook 24 Apr 2012

AS shown on the daily chart posted below, the pair trades around major crossroads, upward , downward , sideways, all options are available!!!!

By checking momentum indicators on daily chart, yes the main trend is bearish but in the next coming few days, the picture is unclear, a daily close above 1.3224 would confirm the bullish breakout and open too many ways to test 1.3300/350 levels, but in return , a daily close below 1.3103 would give us false bullish breakout , then strong…

USDCHF;Weakness 2 The Downside Increased, 0.9080 & 0.9250 Are Important pivots !

With last Friday's close , bearish breakout has been confirmed on the daily chart of USDCHF , suggests more losses , the bearish breakout happened around critical level 0.9080 , the pivotal level (50% retracement ) of the last rally (0.8567 / 0.9594 ) ...

We need to watch the pair tomorrow , a daily close below 0.9080 would confirm the bearish break out and open too many ways to test 0.8567 in medium term , but it may fluctuate for awhile around 0.8960..

A rejection from 0.9080…

The USD/CAD currency pair has moved a relatively modest 8 to 18 pips during the first minute following the release of the past eight…
