USD/JPY: Grinds Lower
The JPY is the top performing G10 currency overnight, adding to its
outperformance since the beginning of the month. ‘Safe haven’
demand on US debt worries continues to add to the JPY’s appeal
(as well as the CHF), with more divisive comments from House of
Representatives Speaker Boehner and President Obama over the
weekend adding to concerns that a resolution is not any closer than it
was on Friday.
Seasonally, October has been one of…

USD/CAD continues to pivot around the 1.03 area. Risk aversion is a
modest drag on the CAD’s short-term performance at least but shortterm
rate spreads are currently the most potent correlation with the
CAD and spreads remain supportive, if off the recent highs. More
backtracking in spreads (recall that the BoC downgraded its views on
growth into the end of the year) plus more risk aversion are needed to

We start a new week and Usd/Cad continues to trade around the same levels which have held for two weeks. Good demand is still seen for Usd a little lower down towards the 1.0275 area, and we would expect to see System stops below there through 1.0260. Topside looks capped near 1.0350/60 for now. Eur/Cad drifted lower in to the tail end of last week as some long liquidation was seen on Friday. 1.4100/1.4125 is still critical resistance on that cross, the highs seen earlier this year. Support…Continue

This morning’s sharp fall in European equity markets and overnight falls in Asia combined with the Dow Jones futures nursing a triple digit fall should give a boost to the US dollar. However, this has not been the case thus far today with the greenback below last Friday’s closing levels against the Euro, Sterling and Yen. The US dollar was picking up strength against most currencies at the end of last week after the slump since July. The US dollar has weakened from 1.28 Euro to 1.36 Euro in…Continue

The GBPUSD has lost some of its upside momentum last week , printed a new resistance at the 1.6177 levels, stability below this level on a daily closing basis is likely to add pressure to the 1.5954/1.6004 levels , a halt is suggested but losing this level will confirm short term topping and flip bias to the downside towards the 1.5716/50 levels.
On the upside , sustained break above the 1.6177 is likely to recapture the 1.6259 levels with a breach , above the 1.6259 will target the…Continue

Gold is a chemical element with the symbol AU and atomic number 79. It is a dense, soft, malleable and ductile metal with an attractive, bright yellow color and luster that is maintained without tarnishing in air or water. Briefly, gold is nothing else than an chemical element on Mendeleev's periodic table and still is not as the other elements from the table. That's because gold has been widely used throughout the world as a vehicle for monetary exchange, either by issuance and…Continue

Only a few days ago I was suggesting to trade the Amazon.com shares as CFD buying in the 318 - 320 area with the SL at 313.80. Yesterday evening (my time) the Amazon.com shares made a higher high of all time at 322.58$/share and a few hours later I saw my SL hit :(
So what's happening here? The fundamentals suggest to buy this share, the technicals suggest to buy Amazon.com, the Dow Theory says to buy Amazon.com when market goes higher than its last peak (and it…

Morning traders! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

On USD Index we have seen a quite sharp rally in the last 48 hours of trading which…

Alternatively, a failure to hold below the 1.6004 levels could mean a return to the…Continue

3 weeks of fluctuating price action in EURGBP were followed by a rejection of initial lows and strong buying in the last 5 days. The resulting gains, using a Marabuzo line from January as a platform, created a Bullish Outside Week.
This positive pattern often signals a change in market sentiment and with the daily Keltner channel trending positively now and the 13 day mvg avg exceeded for the first time in a month, we look for demand to continue.

We gave this trend line a good test as we topped at 1.61260 but then sold off sharply in to the end of the week. This leaves a negative candle on the weekly chart as you can see below, to confirm our expectations of an end to the 3 month rally. Immediate support for the week is at 1.6110/00 & then 1.5920. …Continue
