  1. Charts from today's Breakfast FX Briefing: FEB 4 2015

    by , 02-04-2015 at 04:32 AM
    Ranges for selected FX pairs this morning

    Charts are from our Breakfast FX Briefing webinar. Click on link to see presentation.

    When working with breakouts correlations are important. Given the major correlations 4 different groups can be identified. Ideally to strengthen a case of a specific scenario, the correlated pair does the same.

    Say that we get a bullish EURUSD breakout, then if GBPUSD is also bullish or about to turn bullish, then this will strengthen the case the EURUSD breakout is successful. If EURUSD is bullish and GBPUSD is bearish, then its likely that one or both of the scenarios will fail.

    Groups I focus on

    • EURUSD and GBPUSD - positively correlated

  2. FX - Medium term technical outlook

    by , 02-02-2015 at 05:39 PM
    • Medium term trends and technical levels that are dominating the markets today
    • AUDUSD may decline further on technical and fundamental reasons
    • USDCAD is bullish but USOIL has stabilized which warns about a reversal

    The trend is bearish as long as we trade below 1.19 and we should given the trend trade lower and maybe reach as low as 1.08. Traders will probably look to fade strength in the 1.15 - 1.1750 zone. However the FXCM SSI index is not supporting further declines which increases the risk of a reversal. My fundamental outlook is bearish.

  3. Equity and Commodity market outlook Jan 7 - 2015

    by , 01-07-2015 at 07:30 AM
    We are trapped between 9421 and 9629, the overall trend remains bearish and we might test the lower end of the range. Yet given that we are fairly close to major support on the daily chart we should expect an attempt for the short term trend to turn bullish over the next few days.

    I would argue that if we breakout below 9421 then this might take us to 9351 and then 9320. I also suspect that the short term trend might already have turned bullish.

  4. Equity and Commodity market outlook Jan 6 - 2015

    by , 01-05-2015 at 08:37 AM
    Most stock markets are lower as anticipated last week, with most of our bearish outlooks working out great.

    It is also interesting to note that equity markets are starting to reach major support levels, which means that traders will probably soon favor long positions given the overall supportive macro fundamental theme. The political turmoil in Greece is the markets major concern right now.

    As we start to reach major support we should experience a slightly choppy market as the long term and short term trends meet.


    The trends keep on rewarding us, yesterday I said 'Today the trend remains bearish below 9830 and we may reach 9600 as long as we trade below 9830.' Prices traded as low as 9382. ...
