EUR/USD - Bernanke Can Rock the Boat Both Ways

EUR/USD is now trading under resistance, in the levels it fell to after the Slovak PM said there’s a 50/50 chance of a euro breakup. The focus will shift away from Europe now to Jackson Hole, where Bernanke will deliver a highly awaited speech. Expectations for QE3 hints are now lower, so any talk of new easing could hurt the dollar. If Bernanke says nothing, the pair could lose uptrend support. A…

EURUSD Daily Outlook 31 Aug 2012

The EURUSD was unable to maintain its bullish move yesterday  capped by short term top at 1.2589 ?!!

Today I assume a bearish move testing the lower line of the bullish channel around 1.2460/40 zones, a clear break below this level would lead for massive bearish move and might end the current bullish correction .

Immediate resistance is seen around  1.2520 where bounce back to downside is expected , stability below the key resistance 1.2589 is indeed to keep the…

A Mentor-Student Conversation

With all eyes on Bernanke and the Jackson Hole speech tomorrow, I do not think its prudent to be giving any trade recommendations (or taking any new positions) till after the announcement with most traders/investors on the sidelines.



Thus, I wanted to do was share an email exchange I had with one of my students which I thought would be really helpful for those struggling with the learning/trading process.  Many traders either now or in the past, have gone through a similar…

EUR/USD & GOLD forecast 30.08.2012

Since my last forecast EUR has made some more progress to the upside but stopped @ 1.2589 and that level is not passed in the second attempt also. This is because there are no any significant news to support the EUR or to weaken USD. We have a flat consolidation within 100 pips range. Some analysts have said the EUR will soon go south in searching better long positions, but i do not expect to fall beyond 1.2460, maybe even 1.2485-90 will hold as the market is very cautious and any fall is…

WhY nO Qe3 !

There is lot of hope that Bernanke like past year will give fresh hint about the QE3 at Jackson Hole meeting titled “Monetary policy since the crisis”. The expectation is high, weakness of USD Dollar, strength of GOLD and mood of the market clearly indicates that the DOVES are driving the market and HAWKS preferred to stay remain on the sideline, this is evident from the market trading volume.

But the question I would like to ask is that why FED would fire its…

EURUSD Weekly Outlook ( 27 - 31 Aug 2012 )

The EURUSD corrected higher last week, topped at 1.2589, bottomed at 1.2294 and closed at 1.2504!!

So far, the bias remains neutral in short term, immediate support is seen around 1.2460/40, a clear break below that level could be a threat to the bullish correction and might trigger further weakness testing the lower line of the upward channel!!!

On the upside, a clear break above 1.2550 zone could trigger further gains testing 1.2625/50 zone!!!

Conclusion : EURUSD’s…
