Oil prices didn’t change much during the past couple of weeks; last week wasn’t any different as crude oil prices moderately declined after they had moderately inclined the week before. The US GDP 2011 Q2 didn’t grow by a high rate (only 1.3%); this news might have affected traders to trade down crude oil prices on Friday. By the end of the week, Brent lost 1.23% of its value, and WTI…Continue

Its the end of the weekend trade and also month end, but certainly looks like a beginning of some interesting moves for EURUSD coming weeks in the month of August. I am quoting few possibilities out of my chart here and any discussions/feedback are welcome.
Paper currencies are less in value, debt crisis and nearly zero percent interest.
However the Swiss Franc is an exception as investors are worried about the Euro and US Dollar.
The Swiss Franc trade weighted index however reached new highs.
The only negative is in the banking sector because the Swiss Franc is becoming too expensive.
WHAT ProAct Traders SEE: We are currently sitting @ 1.4365 just below the Day chart trendline and the .786 Fibo. A clear head and shoulders has formed with a set of twins and all of that is bearish for the cross from a technical standpoint. 2 scenarios: A bounce to the upside targets the double top @ 1.4537. If the cross respects the .786 and the trend line look for a break of the neckline and a move back to the S5 @ 1.4162. The average daily trading range for the cross…

In spite of constant headlines about debts and deficits, most Americans don’t really believe the U.S. dollar will collapse.
From knowledgeable investors who study the markets to those seemingly too busy to worry about such things, most dismiss the idea of the dollar actually going to zero.

USD/CHF (daily chart) as of Friday (7/29/2011) has established yet a new all-time low, this time breaking below the 0.7900 level for the first time. This breakdown occurs within the context of a remarkably strong and technically-behaving long-term, medium-term, and short-term downtrend. This bearish trend, which has essentially been in place since the June 2010 high,…Continue

Putting price action in perspective of Fibonacci level, pivots, recent highs and lows, and psychological levels are all part a of a chartist's typical day. But what about price movement ranges and volatility. It's difficult to gauge without sufficient historical price data but that's where I use the PowerStats plug-in on my MT4.*
* By the way, most brokers that offer Autochartist and MT4…Continue

Gold and silver remained unchanged in recent days: during the first couple of weeks of July (1st to 18th of July), gold rose by 8.08% and silver by 19.69%; on the other hand, during this week (July 25th to 28th), gold rose by only 0.11% and silver declined by 1.4%. This slowdown might continue until the cards will fall on the matter of the debt ceiling talks in the US. In the mean time the forex and commodities prices don't move much. Today,…Continue
