EUR has made a rally last Friday as a result of the 'flag' formation and ended around 1.3170. Today it is time for a correction move to 1.3100 and why not to 1.3050 again. H4 and Daily charts show still strong bullish move, but on H1 bullish power is decreasing and move soon may turn into a correction. First support is 1.3130 second is 1.3100, third is 1.3050. On the upside we have a strong resistance area 1.3180-1.3220. As you can see it is pretty wide, and with some good economic data…Continue

I'll start this Trade of the Week (TOTW) post with what I consider to be a universal truth: No one -- and I mean no one -- gets market direction right all the time, every time. We all have days when we swear the euro is going to drop, but instead it pushes higher. A lack of major trends on multiple major currency pairs and lower than normal volatility has certainly made the job of establishing a [bull/bear] bias more challenging for traders.
Having said that, I firmly believe that…Continue

UBS - "(...) The Fed's new policies are likely to keep the dollar constrained as the new year starts but will support the currency in 2013 as the US economy keeps recovering. That means the greenback is likely to stay at current levels of 1.30-1.32 against the euro for now but recover back to 1.15-1.20 next year.
(...) In our last comment here for 2012, the key points for currencies are:
- new Fed policies tempering dollar for now, to bolster it later
- ECB watchers should…

Some members ask me to explain the extended divergence(s), since it was not easy to explain that in 2 words or in a message,so I've written this thread hoping that everybody benefits from it!
A regular divergence is used as a possible sign for a trend reversal,if the price is making lower lows,but the oscillator- in our example RSI - is making higher lows , then we have regular bullish…Continue

We are not in the era of 70’s or 80’s. In the early 70’s USD was clobbered as President Nixon decided to cancel the direct convertibility of USD to gold fixed at USD 35 per troy oz that essentially ended the existing Breton Woods system of international financial exchange.
If you go back to the 80 era, the European growth was lackluster ranging between 1% to 2%. Until 1990 Japan’s economy commonly known as “Miracle Economy” lost its gloss, as the economy crumbled…
Recommendation: LONG positions above 1.3126 with 1.3212 & 1.3290 as next targets.
Alternative scenario: The downside breakout of 1.3126 will open the way to 1.3040/1.2970.
Comment:.Last week the pair formed one of the strongest bullish pattern after breaking above 1.3126 levels, eyes will be on 1.3212 and 1.3290 levels , only a daily close below 1.3126 will delay the bullish move and reverse…
What Forex Target Traders See: We are currently sitting @ 1.3172 after an impressive upside move. We are right at the day chart trend line so traditional wisdom says look for the bears. We are not so sure! Wave 2 was very shallow so that may lend credibility that this is only wave 3 of the up move so it is prudent to prepare for a breakout and trade the longs or the short once it is proven. Expecting a pullback at current levels and then continuation to the upside…Continue
BBH - "We expect the dollar to remain in broad trading ranges against the euro and sterling. The prospects of more aggressive expansion of the Fed’s balance sheet and the protracted fiscal cliff self-created crisis, even as Europe muddles along, could see the dollar begin 2013 in a softer phase. This could see the euro trade toward $1.35 and sterling toward $1.65. We look for the dollar to recover subsequently. We anticipate the US economy will strengthen after Q1 and that the European debt…Continue

USDCHF: With its one-week recovery reversed the past week to close lower, further price extension is likely to occur in the new week. This development leaves the pair targeting the 0.9041 level where a breach will turn attention to the 0.9000 level. Price hesitation may occur here and turn the pair back up but if taken out, it will aim at the 0.8929 level. Its weekly RSI is bearish and pointing lower supporting this view. On the upside, it will have to return above the 0.9382 level to annul…Continue

It has been over a year at the end of which my efforts to become a confident and profitable trader have not yielded the desired results. I think that part of the problem is that there is no quality control or accreditation process that helps retail traders identify a good quality service provider. Practically anyone with some knowledge and ability to recording videos can become a trading coach or tutor. Many people actually are just that, or should I say a majority of these trading courses…Continue

++ Market sentiment can tell you "something".
When someone still thinks the Market Sentiment is not important or not useful, then the same means they thinks all states do not require Department of Intelligence. How accurate of Market Sentiment is similar to Department of Intelligence. It is a pair of ears and eyes to hear and see more faster. Speed is one of most important factor for a better attack (open trades) and defense (floating with safer margin), with fewer…Continue

· The U.S. housing recovery builds momentum.
· Flares, not wildfires in Europe.
