USD/CDN simple two legged pullback entry with trend

A nice example of a simple 2 legged pull back entry with trend, and some explanation of the thought process.

to determine trend, simply need 2 or more HHs, after which you look for the first 2 legged reversal.  the 2 legged reversal should not extend beyond the most recent HL, if it does it negates this particular set up and may even indicate a trend reversal.  if you look at the previous reversal from bear to bull you can see the 2 legged pullback would not have been traded, and did…

HSBC - AUDUSD: Positioning for a Fall

HSBC - "The market’s romance with the AUD has faltered. AUDUSD has fallen nearly 8% since the beginning of April, breaking through parity for the first time in nearly a year. The catalysts of AUD’s demise appear to be the 3 C’sChina, commodities and carry.

However, the 3 C’s have been conspiring against the AUD for a long time now and we argued back in September 2012 that these factors should have resulted in AUDUSD trading much lower.

(...) The…

Societé Generale - Scenario Analysis for the Coming Week(s)



Societé Generale - "The data calendar gets busy again over the coming week, with NFPs the icing on the cake on Friday. Our economists are looking for a s lightly above-consensus number, at +210k. We’ve also got the BoE (waiting for Carney) and ECB (dovish but no cut) meetings on Thursday. Because the Fed is becoming very data-dependant, the focus will be on US employment. Three scenarios:

1.Strong US data would revive exit fears,…

BofAML - ECB Meeting Next Week: Currency impact likely to be more muted

Bank of America Merrill Lynch - "In our view, the ECB has several options to loosen monetary policy further: interest rates, liquidity operations and/or support to credit, but we doubt that it will employ these measures. Rather, we believe the bank will try to reassure the market that all options remain open and could cut the refi further by 25bp in the summer on the back of weaker activity and to preserve low market rates. The ECB could then follow this with more unconventional policy,…

EUR/USD & GOLD forecast 31.05.2013

EUR gained above 1.3000 level yesterday as expected however it coudn't break over 1.3050. Currently EUR is trading around the support 1.3030. Maybe after some hesitation around 1.3030 EUR will test 1.3060-75 area. I expect a failiure there or a little above if reached. It's a good idea to SHORT EUR ahead of 1.3100. We have immediate support @ 1.3020 and then @ 1.3000. You may enter LONG at these levels for 1.3065-80 and then to reverse your position. If you take a look at the H4 frame you…

JP Morgan - FX technicals: key levels EUR/USD 1.2760 & USD/CAD 1.0450

JP Morgan - "From a technical perspective, the medium term rally phase for the USD has accelerated over the past few weeks in line with the backup in US rates. While the short term setup can allow for some pause, the broad-based strength implies an improved technical backdrop and increased risk that a deeper rally phase is underway. The key development for the improved setup is the push through the 2012 highs for the JPM USD Index (84.44) and the DXY (84.10). Moreover, the May close will…

Deutsche Bank - Are you really ready for a once-in-a-generation move in the USD?

Deutsche Bank - "We believe the market remains under-positioned for what we expect to be a once-in-a-generation move in the USD over the course of the year, as well as big moves in rates.

First, real yield differentials between the US and the rest of the world have already turned, suggesting the US trade-weighted dollar should be at least 7% higher from current levels.

(...) Second, the market continues to be too complacent on the US rates path, particularly in the short-end. One…
