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…Continue
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…Continue

European session start time show upward move above initial high in EURO and also in USD/YEN.it appears the yen crosses are handled on the upside.Follow up rise is not happening for 10 min - it may be a stop hunt- if stay above initial high for more than 30 min then extended move may be seen.if the holding above initial high exceeds 2 hrs then the intentional move of further rise may be seen.so note the time taken for the move to assess the types of move.
EURO made a quick rise during japanese session start and GBP followed nominally.USD/YEN also gained the level to gain levels in YEN crosses.A contrarian move where in EURO,GBP and USD/YEN are showing positive net change.USD/CHF is also slowly gaining the levels to make upward contrarian move opposite of the downward contrarian move of yesterday.
Expected market moves in EURO and GBP for today.
Initial volatile moves and slide during japanese session.
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…Continue

The EURUSD was in a channel trading range last week, until Friday when the price broke higher. For most of Friday, the price moved higher and lower in more volatile trade as the effects of Greece and weaker US data pushed the market. Today, with holiday trading, the price action is contained but holding the…Continue
Due to holiday mood the market volume appears to be thin.Hence the contrarian moves are seen - all the majors and commodity pairs showing negative net change from friday close.This sort of move is to handle the crosses on the down side.When such contrarian moves happen - once the low in the numerator and the denominator currency is not breached ror 30 min and also in the respective cross,then once can buy near low with 50 pips stop to exit the next day when they show opposite of current…Continue
