Week 41 trading stubs, GBP JPY and AUD to watch

Recap

EUR/USD and USD/JPY disappointed last week for the traders who took contrarian side of the trade. It worked much better for EUR/NZD and EUR/GBP longs for the week. Coming week may be somehow muted in comparing to recent increase in volatility, one aspect to watch in my book will be strengthening of JPY (see the currency board below). RBA will announce their rates on Monday night/Tuesday morning depending on the timezone as…

The Backstreet Boys of the Financial Markets

Mario Draghi, Shinzo Abe, Haruhiko Kuroda, Mark Carney and Ben Bernanke* are what I call the Backstreet Boys of the Financial Markets. *Janet Yellen is new and she did nothing ‘till now to deserve a place in this music band.

Mario Draghi

In the last 2 years, the ECB enjoyed the cheapest monetary policy, thanks to Mario Draghi’s magic words “whatever it takes”. While FED, BoE or BoJ had to print money to “save” their economies, investors bought Europe based on the safety…

Are we back to the "risk off" sentiment?

In the last few days, I tried to understand better the Crimea conflict and mostly why Putin sent his Panzers there. Asking around, I got this answer:

A Frenchman, a German and a Russian were bragging about their countries.

The Frenchman: we have modern cars. We use Renault to travel in France and the Peugeot when we go outside of France.

The German: we have modern cars too. We use Volkswagen when we travel in Germany and Mercedes when we go…

Keep your GBP/JPY and AUD/JPY sell trades open. Ukraine news is the key.

Today the fx markets opened with gaps facing down mainly due to the recent events in Ukraine and Russia, where intense situation almost escalated into a war. Almost...but the chance that we could be on the brink of war still remains.

Today I recommend watching the Ukraine news, as those could be the key to fx market changes that could even surpass the findamental economical PMI news from Europe and US.

We sold GBP/JPY and AUD/JPY on Sunday night when the 169.60 and 90.66 levels…

Sell EUR/USD, EUR/JPY and GBP/JPY

Yesterday we sold EUR/USD, GBP/USD and EUR/JPY.

 

For today I recommend selling EUR/USD again from 1.3691 level. Reason for entry is quite simple: 123 strategy (High – low – high – broken low), and broken uptrend lower channel line, which indicates that EUR/USD could be going down. If 1.3691 level is broken and hourly candle stays below, we could see the price going for 1.3644 first (first profit target) and then possibly to 1.3600. Anyway, I suggest moving stop loss order of…

Eur/Jpy technical analysis

I have to say it’s been a while since I haven’t looked at eur/jpy. I did it today though. But only because I wanted to check if the eur/usd drop from yesterday was because of a strong usd or because a weak eur, so I controlled all the eur/crosses. The conclusion was that seems there is an increasing pressure on the single currency.

Next week, on 6th of March the ECB is meeting again to discuss the monetary policies and the latest inflation numbers force the speculators to…

Prepare to sell JPY pairs at the breakout

Yesterday we sold EUR/USD from upper downtrend channel line at 1.3658 with stops at 1.3703. We sold two positions with the first profit target fixed at 1.3610.

 

Today I suggest moving your stop loss order for both positions to break even in case of reversal and holding them until they reach our predefined profit targets, which remain the same (1.3610 and 1.3500).

 

We were also selling USD/JPY from 102.62 and 102.22, but the price retraced and touched our entry…

Late buyers for usd/jpy?

I remember a few weeks ago someone said: "The problem with bubbles is that if you sell stocks before the bubble bursts, you look foolish, but you also look foolish if you sell stocks after the bubble bursts." I don't remember exactly who that person was but the stock market is not the reason of this article, as I feel we have a similar situation on the Forex market. If you call now a reversal in the usd/jpy you might look foolish but also you might loose the…

Why USD/JPY can reach 115!

The USD/JPY is the key to the boom and doom of the global economy, this carry trade determines each point to which a global economic crisis is likely to take place. 

If you watch the USD/JPY carefully from 1985, you will notice lower highs forming. With each peak of the high is the date where the recession had already taken place, where as if you measure the peaks for each lower high you could precisely predict when the next recession would have taken place, and following the…

Usd/Jpy: symmetrical triangle

The symmetrical triangle is formed when the market makes lower highs and higher lows and is commonly associated with directionless markets as the contraction of the market range indicates that neither the bulls nor the bears are in control. If this pattern forms in an uptrend then it is considered a continuation pattern if the market breaks out to the upside.



Ian Shepherdson of Pantheon Macroeconomics notes that later today we will have…

Risk off

Risk off

Much to the chagrin of the Japanese Ministry of Finance and the Bank of Japan, the markets have taken an aversion to the data released over the past few days and risk is back off the table.

Having had a brief look at life above 80.00 and 104 we now see the JPY strengthening. It will be some time before the Japanese authorities considering intervention but tactically they may have missed an opportunity while the market was looking at a weakening JPY.

The Euro has…

USD vs JPY Ichimoku Trade Update

At the start of the week I posted a trade opportunity for the USD vs JPY in which we were looking for a short opportunity based off of the price breaking outside of the bottom of the Kumo for a Kumo breakout trade. We'll it took the whole week but finally today price did break the Kumo and close below that level. This level @ 79.779 is the ideal entry for a short opportunity as we see all signs on…

AUD vs JPY Ichimoku Analysis

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. Seeing that the pair had a false Kumo break on 4/10/12 and then a pullback into the Kumo we had to wait until price found strength to break the Kumo. This opportunity happened 20 days later…
