EURUSD: Having continued to strengthen for a second day in a row, risk could be building up for a return to its key resistance at the 1.3171 level. This view remains valid unless a violation of the 1.2890/22 levels occurs. A breach of the 1.3171 level will resume its broader uptrend towards the 1.3282 level with a cut through here calling for a move further higher towards its weekly ema at 1.3415 level. Conversely, the pair will have to break and hold below the 1.2890/22 levels to put its…Continue

Austerity is something we have come to hear a great deal about over the term of the global downturn and in particular in relation to the debt crisis in Europe.
Those holding the purse strings in Northern Europe are used to austerity as a tool that has been frequently used, in varying degrees, to manage their economies.
Those in Southern Europe, the so-called PIIGS, have not used austerity to manage their economies as they have been used to high interest rate, high inflation…Continue

After several attempts to break 1.2880 USD finally gave up and weakened against the EUR. EU currency has made a nearly 100 pips rally on a background of rising unemployment in Germany and more bad than good EU data. It was a little bit surprising, and at the same time it was expected because it's too early to enter the big positive Ichimoku. So it bounced and now 1.2880 is far below EUR currently trades around 1.2960 ready to make another leg higher. Weekly close above 1.2960 will accelerate…Continue

Although the precious metal is trying to form a base, it has yet to show any bullish legs,…Continue
