Euro dollar is leaning lower within a lower range, after more weak European data and before the highly anticipated Non-Farm Payrolls. The boost given to the pair by Draghi faded out. French, Greek and also local German elections are scheduled for the weekend and traders might clear positions ahead of all this risk. How will the pair end this turbulent week?

With the Yen being one of the strongest currencies of late we will look at the opportunities arising from it's recent strength. With all Ichimoku signals bearish on the daily time frame our sentiment is for a short opportunity.

The Market loves playing "games" with all types of traders. The official reason is due to there being a price zone or area were both the "bulls" and the "bears" are fighting over a support or resistance area.
This can lead to sudden price movements both ways - until one side "wins" and is able to carry on with the move - whether it be another 10-100+ pips up or down.
If you are a day trader and trade either intraday or just one trade per day - you have bound to have suffered…Continue

The sharp drop, in which the euro lost close to one cent in value, was precipitated by weak employment data out of the Euro-zone. Today’s key releases include an ECB interest rate decision and press conference, as well as US employment and manufacturing PMI data. Although a repeat of yesterday’s slide is…Continue

Gold and silver decreased for the third consecutive business day. The recent news from Europe of the unemployment rising to 10.9% didn't help the Euro. Today's ECB rate decision might play a role in the forex and commodities markets. The ADP projects the U.S employment expanded by 119k during April. If tomorrow's U.S non-farm report will show a similar result it may adversely affect the USD and consequently may help pull up bullion.…Continue

Brian Twomey goes Inside the Currency Market.
We've traveled light years to answer the question of risk as it pertains to the modern day currency market. Think about days of old post World War 1 when the last time exchange rates were allowed to free float. Those days lacked an indicator, a computer, ease of transactions so what was left to calculate exchange rates was risk in relation to exit and entry measured by first logarithms to the base 10 then logarithms to the…Continue
