Euro/dollar closed the month with a bang, rising from the abyss to high levels as hope from the EU Summit took over any doubts. Are we set for more gains? Or will the rally fade out as in past summits. The rate decision is the main event of this week. Will the ECB finally cut rates?Here is an outlook for the upcoming events and an updated technical analysis for EUR/USD.

What ProAct Forex Target Traders See: We are currently sitting @ 1.2655 just under the day chart trendline @ 1.2685. There is no real trend established and the latest move was fundamental in nature not technical. If we break the top we are bullish to the R5 @ 1.2784 and then the -0.618 fib extension @ 1.2871. A breakdown will target a move back to the .786 Fibo/ R1 @ 1.2468. We need a pullback to establish the uptrend so expect that to be built before a break of…Continue

As a trader I always keep reminding myself to be humble .
If you are too proud and overconfident, you will make mistakes leading to your defeat.
There is always another day to trade.
Be humble , patient and discipline = SUCCESS
There are of course a few things to consider.
The eu summit of course
The New York session over the next days being thin due to the July 4th holiday In the USA this being a long weekend for many in America.
I trade asia for the most part and recently EJ has been good range trading both ways as it has been working out the larger trends.
Setting aside fundamental events for the moment
My view for this pair some while back has been that it would eventually…Continue
Currently the pair is @ 1.5653 after the strong reversal last night. Today is week end, month end and quarter end so this could be a big day as traders try and pad their clients’ accounts before squaring up. BE CAREFUL! Look for the move to go to the resistance @ 1.5703 and maybe the R4 @1.5719.…Continue

EUR/USD leaped around 200 pips on the announcements made in the EU Summit. The decision to give an equal status to the bailout funds and avoid the scenario of the Greek subordination is definitely good news. The direct bank recapitalization decision is still full of holes, big ones. There are quite a few indicators on the agenda, but the EU Summit digestion and another topic rule…Continue

Gold and silver didn't do much yesterday as gold edged up while silver slipped. The rise in U.S pending home sales index and U.S core durable goods as indicated in their respective reports, may have contributed to the rise in stocks and commodities prices. The EU Summit will start today. If there will be big headlines coming out of the Summit, it could affect forex and commodities markets. I suspect it will…Continue

The downside projection continues with the…Continue

EUR/USD broke out of yesterday’s (June 27th) narrow range, as the market mood soured prior to today’s EU Summit. The European leaders have plenty of pressing topics to discuss, starting with the alarming fiscal crises in Greece and Spain. As with other grandiose meetings, there is a lot of skepticism if any concrete measures will be announced. There was more bad news as German CPI…Continue

So am I super bullish here - NO - which is another reason why I am expecting bullish move - Anyway here are the pivots and setups I see happening - Good luck - I hope it helps!…Continue

After bouncing and continuing higher from the pin bar we mentioned yesterday, the 1hr chart on the Aussie looks like the bulls are squeezing out the bears trying to take out the short term resistance at 1.0089. Although the bounce off the oversold lows the other day has the presence of being more…
