GBP/USD Broke Through Rising Wedge Support but Rests on 34EMA Wave

The 240-minute uptrend on the GBP/USD has broken lower through the uptrend line support of the pattern. This triggers a pattern break but not necessarily a trend break. To define the trend, I use the 34EMA Wave which is still travelling higher in a "twelve to two o'clock" uptrend therefore I will expect it to act as support on a pullback. The pattern break is still a short entry trigger since the Directional Bias on the daily time…

Hi Everyone

Happy first of the month to you all. For todays video, a little review of the previous USD/JPY plays we had and then we switch to the Kiwi dollar. The main reason as the video explains is the Kiwi has no one at home therefore should be plain sailing. The Yen on the other hand is smack in the middle of a fib war. Can make money but a tough battle compared to the Kiwi.

Have a good day.

USDCHF... Looking for more

The USDHF made new lows today and has been pressured since the IMF said last week that the SNB should raise interest rates. Today, the Swiss GDP came out weaker than expected and puts into question that idea. Nevertheless, the price remains the all time lows and also below the 'old' low from the earlier in the month (at 0.8552). 


What would give me…

The cross has corrected and is currently trying to break the trendline to the upside @ 81.67.  A break of this to the upside targets the double top @ 82.26. If we do not break the trendline we will look for a return to the S3 target @ 80.82 ( 1.618 fibo).  …

Starting the day

Hi everyone and welcome! Against my expectations and despite quite disappointing figures early Europe, the Euro is showing an impressive strength against its rivals, steady around 1.4400 against dollar and above 117.00 area against yen. Strong recovery in stocks since early Asian opening, and commodities, may be reason of this run, yet also the fact that Germany capitulated to demand further tightening and restructuration, along with geting ready to provide more loans. No matter what…

Almost 100 pips from open of today, and with the unemployment well below the forecast we are going short through the american session. You may go short @ levels around 1.4420 - first target 1.4370, second target 1.4330, and if a strong move we may go to 1.4280.

Don't forget to place stop 30-40 pips against you position, because there always are surprises.

EUR/USD forecast 31.05.2011

Bullish trend continues and we have reached 1.4404 this morning. Good news from Germany and bad news from USA are expected. My forecast for today is LONG eur/usd , buy on a pullback to 1.4335-40 and stay long to 1.4415. Resistances at 1.4422 and 1.4433. You may stop below 1.4320, but i think for today 1.4300 should hold.

Everyone don't care what's happening in Grece, all just want to buy EUR, hoping Mr.Trichet to support EUR once again if this happens in his speech on Thursday we may…
