GOLD: Our broader outlook on GOLD continues to point lower despite its recovery attempts the past week. We are looking for price failure to occur and turn it back down towards the 1,338/21 levels. Below here if seen will aim at the 1,300.00 level and possibly lower towards the 1,270 level. On the upside, GOLD will have to return above the 1,488.00 level to end its broader downside and then resume its recovery. Further out, resistance is seen at the 1,590.40 level followed by the 1,619…

First, I don't trade gold. I'm just a minor trader whose positions are mostly based on FA. Gold is the game of major funds and big big hands, who sometimes ignore all the fundamental aspects and news, pushing their own moves to burn small accounts.
But there are several things to say about TA.
My analysis is based on the swing A (Oct 2008 ~ 681.4) to B (Sep 2011 ~ 1920.8). This swing was supported by a rising trendline (green). It was then breached at the end of Apr 2012…Continue

What Forex Target Traders See: We are currently sitting @ 1.2935 after a strong bounce off the day chart trend line. We are tentatively bullish but waiting.

The average (14 day) daily true range (ATR)…Continue

Why seems fxstreet so amateurish compared to Dukascopy ..!!
I have been a customer of Dukascopy for many years .. Something that has impressed me is how they have handled the transition basis of clients , where minimum ticket was 50 K to open the account then down to 5 K and 0.1 K today.
I went through their fxcommunity pages for the first time and was impressed with how good they are to promoting forex trading with sex, glamor, wellness, wealth and…Continue
USDCHF – Having backed off higher prices to close lower the past week, there is risk of further declines in the new week. Despite this it continues to hold on to its broader upside bias suggesting the mentioned weakness is corrective. On ending it USDCHF should eventually return to the 0.9838 level, its May 2013 high where a violation will aim at the 0.9850 level. Further out, resistance resides at the 0.9900 level with a turn above here exposing the 0.9970 level. On the downside, support…Continue

Recently I have been studying currency pairs’ behaviors in different months and Im trying to see if there are any significant difference, decency and some other weird things ;) between the months in FX Market. Here Im simply considering EURUSD daily return in the month of January during 2002 - 2013. It should be added that daily return is counted base on the difference between Close Price Day2 and Day1, then Average of whole month, plus Standard Deviation (as the risk measure) and…Continue

Same story exist for currencies and I tried to replicate the effect of December (last month of the year) on EurUsd pair, base on January 2002- November 2012 daily market rates.
During the last decade daily fluctuations of EurUsd in December sometimes has been less than the rest of the year and sometimes it has been higher. To compare December…

Have you ever wondered if average price of currency pairs may be indicative? Is it a right estimator?
To apply some classic trading strategies in Retail Forex I have been working on 4 major pairs, EURUSD, USDJPY, USDCHF and GBPUSD since last year. Due to my work I found some characteristics about currencies which might be useful for day trading in retail Forex.
One of these characteristics is about having zero mean (average) in 4H time frame. I studied 4 majors during Jan…Continue

Goldman Sachs - "One of our key FX themes for 2013 remains a bearish view on the AUD. We now expect the cross to trade at 0.97, 0.96 and 0.90 in 3, 6 and 12 months. Our view remains predicated on Australia’s deteriorating fundamentals, prospects for lower commodity prices, slower Chinese activity and the likelihood that the search for yield will decline as global growth sustainably recovers. We chose to express that view in a Top Trade recommendation vs the Norwegian Kroner, given they are…Continue

Aud.Jpy is on the path as mentioned on yesterday comment. Things are on the way to hit our 1st target @ 97, we can have second target 96.50 – 96.20 area. my recommendation is to book 80% @ 97 and leave 20% for 96.20. If you are in both trades, your avg entry will be 100.325, and so you should have more than 332 pips in profit @ 97.…Continue

Rabobank - "Over the past few years the ‘resilience’ of EUR/USD has surprised many investors. Even as the Eurozone crisis raged, the weakest level that EUR/USD achieved was a brief dip to 1.1877 back in June 2010. One of the most obvious explanations for this ‘resilience’ has been the weakness of the USD. In 2012 the USD was the second weakest performing G10 currency after the JPY. Insofar as the Fed stepped up QE towards the end of 2012, this is perhaps not surprising. (...), it is…Continue

M&G Investments - "One of the stories that has driven global financial markets higher for the past few months has been about how Japanese investors are piling, or will pile, into foreign assets. Surely a rational Japanese investor would dump Japanese assets in an attempt to escape the exploding yen and the ravages of domestic inflation, or at the very least seek out a bigger yield than the puny returns available on the artificially suppressed domestic government bonds?
