Start of US session quick rises are seen in EURO,GBP and AUD and also in commodities ( gold and silver) as a knee jerk reaction to the speech.
Again a slow slide and drop as expected after this extended stop hunt moves- quick moves are false moves in the market - they are made to gain levels and to take more sell positions before the slide and drop.Use hedging to limit the risk.
The EURUSD moved higher today continuing the corrective move started yesterday (see hourly chart above). The price has peaked at the 1.4105 level (high reached 1.4106) which corresponds with the 50% retracement of the move down from the July 7th high. The move back lower is now testing channel…Continue

Currently @1.4065. The cross took out our .500 fibo target during the night and now has pulled back. Great targets above the .500 Fibo (.618 fibo @ 1.4169 and the R5 @ the 1.4215 area). Needs to bounce at the 1.4042 to do that. A breakdown here targets a move back to R3 @ 1.3986 area. …Continue

Hi everyone! Panic starting past Monday eased this Wednesday and dollar is losing some ground against high yielding currencies. Why investors are back to euro, I guess because they choose the less evil: while the euro zone is fighting to solve the crisis (whether if they are doing it right or wrong), the US saw an increase of the deficit along with worsening employment conditions.
However, market is far from feeling confident on any economy, and gold near its’ record high is…

Growing pressures mounting for both Italy and Spain sending at one point Italian bond yields surged to 6 per cent, and Spanish yields looked like they were heading towards the critical 7 per cent mark, drove yesterday many traders to FXstreet.com. Rumors suggesting that the ECB stepped into the market and bought Italian debt causing the yield to moderate to 5.8 per cent probably helped to repeat visits across the day and to visit more pages and to spend more time on the site as it reached…Continue

Let's take a look at the USD/JPY chart.
We've seen a recent downtrend and many are wondering when it's going to start to turn.
Well, we may be near that potential turning point. Looking on a longer term scale, the pair may retrace back down all the way to 75.00, however, once the downtrend fizzles out, then look for a turn to the upside to hit up to the 83.00 level and higher. If we see a strong upward movement, we may see the pair go up to the 87.00 -…
