Hi Guys I have been working on this project for a while now with back tests as well as forward tests, With a 20 dollar account I have taken this account to 158 dollars over a 2 month period opening only one trade at a time on EURUSD. I have done a quick back test just to confirm with my forward tests and am happy to say with the exception of a few pips corresponds, and that is without compounding and I am afraid if I post my compounding results here it would be scary, The whole point here is…Continue

USDCHF: Weakens, Extends Bearishness.
USDCHF: With a third-week of decline as occurring the past week, further weakness is likely towards the 0.8798 level, its Dec 27 2013 low. Further down, support lies at the 0.8750 level with a cut through here paving the way for a run at the 0.8700 level, its big psycho level. Below here if seen will set the stage for more weakness towards the 0.8650 level. Its weekly RSI is bearish and pointing lower supporting this view. Conversely, to resume…Continue

Nothings moves in straight line; same is on USDCAD where pair now seems to be turning down slightly as pair finds resistance after recent 280 pip rally from 1.0907. We see move down as corrective set-back that may stop at 1.1030-1.0190 region. That's the area where trades may look to join the trend, but after an a)-b)-c) formation that is needed for a completed correction.

It's a jungle out there, and you're on safari. Every trader is an animal, but they're hiding their true nature. How do you know who's what?
If a shark stops moving it dies. Sharks never sleep. If you punch them on the nose they go away. Some of these things apply to Forex traders.

Vladimir, it is an honor and a pleasure to have you with us here at Forexstreet.net and I am personally could not be happier when I knew that you have been selected the Most Valuable Network member in our this year's Forex Best Awards 2014.
Congratulations my friend!
The risk-on is back in play it seems after yesterday's reversal up on US stocks, back to weekly highs. With risk-on, short JPY is the best trade. On the chart below I am looking at the USDJPY running triangle. That's a five wave pattern between contracting trend-lines. In ideal scenario wave E will complete the path at the lower side of a range, but I have seen many examples when wave e) was very small and fast, so I would not be surprised if triangle would show signs of completion maybe…Continue

In the US, Unemployment Claims and Core CPI met expectations, but the Philly Fed Manufacturing Index slumped to a nine-month low. Friday is quiet on the release front, with the markets keeping a…Continue

EUR has dropped from 1.3760 to 1.3685 following the worse economic data, but later through the american session it succeeded to return some of the losses and currently is back above 1.3700 close to the resistance area 1.3720-30. To continue to the upside we need a clear break of 1.3750, but today we have no important data for the eurozone nor for Germany, so we have to rely again on the bad numbers from the USA to make gains. Of course there is a great possibility for the existing home sales…Continue
