Hi everyone and welcome! Against my expectations and despite quite disappointing figures early Europe, the Euro is showing an impressive strength against its rivals, steady around 1.4400 against dollar and above 117.00 area against yen. Strong recovery in stocks since early Asian opening, and commodities, may be reason of this run, yet also the fact that Germany capitulated to demand further tightening and restructuration, along with geting ready to provide more loans. No matter what…Continue

Euro lost its charm on more and more Greece jitters, while AUD/USD below 1.0500 (38.2% retracement of this year bullish run) is neither an interesting buy, so Pound seems to be getting all the attention and heading towards strong 1.6300 area, as long as above 1.6220 immediate support. Swiss Franc is also strong yet now, only below 0.8730 we could see strong bearish movements now.
USD/JPY, is capped below 100 DMA, while poor Euro seems heading to 1.3860 expected…Continue

Hi everyone and welcome back to this blog. Despite the shy bounces in majors against the greenback seen following European opening, dollar has managed to extend gains to new monthly highs against high yields Euro, Pound and Aussie. Current dollar strength has more of Euro weakness than anything else: the euro zone sovereign debt jitters had been hitting euro over and over, day after day. Monday saw the EUR/USD reaching 1.3970 after worse than expected PMI readings in Germany and France.…Continue

Hi everyone! Risk aversion continues easing slowly, dragging dollar down across the board, although so far rises in high yield currencies had been pretty much limited, with Euro and Pound unable to gain bullish momentum. Commodity currencies have a better tone, with AUD/USD nearing 1.0700 and USD/CAD around 0.9640 area, and signaling a continuation, while Swiss Franc and Yen, despite bullish against dollar, had hardly managed to move from past Asian opening levels.

The movement towards 0.8900 was just a shy correction in the long term bearish trend and a break below 0.8770 could be the kickstart for a selloff towards fresh lows:

Hi everyone! Commodities are up, stocks are down, and market continues looking for direction: major crosses are barely unchanged from Asian opening levels, with dollar mixed across the board and Pound posting the biggest loses of the day so far, after BOE’s Minutes show no changes in the 6-3 vote to keep interest rate on hold, while UK unemployment claims rose by the most since January 2010. Back down and below 1.6200 after being rejected by the daily ascendant trend line, GBP/USD approaches…Continue

Hi everyone! After reaching key supports level yesterday, majors managed to bounce higher as stocks and commodities are reversing yesterday’s losses. Easing risk aversion is favoring some dollar slides across the board, still near key points tested yesterday. Interesting, early European data seems pretty positive, with French and German preliminary GDP well above expectations for the first quarter of the year, but of course those are not the troubled countries. Amazing news should have been…Continue
