    I can`t find the tweet (ZH), but april avg seasonal adj. is ca. 30k, whereas march avg seasonal adj. is ca. 800k+ - the number could be seroiusly disappointing, but theese BLS people surely know how to deal with statistics - really tough call here

    Thanks Patryk. The rest did me good! I have a H&S projection target to 1374.20. Could we get a similar drop in GBP/USD?

    Cable looks like uppish from here, it really struggled and failed to break below the low of 27/04. Indicators-wise, this week's slow grind seems to have work off a lot of overbought status. Wedge overshoots can always shoot even higher if it doesn't quickly break back into and below the wedge range. It doesn't have to be a new high, but might be a deep retracement back to near the high.

    timewise - sp500 below aprl the 23rd low confirms LTD/SLTD top - this could be an early suggestion that Cable will follow the similiar path and LTD/SLTD top is already in place.

    Last week we discussed this topic with JohnGFX -Cable`s long term time structure suggests a drop till early summer, correction towards august and SLTD bottom in the autumn.

    My 32 LM Delta has a low due May 5/6 with the next high due about May 11. Fib retracement between the last 2 turn points shows support at the .618 level, about 6162. I am looking to buy on a move higher that shows up on the daily candle. If NFP causes a drop in price, there may be a buying opportunity next week.

    I do usdcad because hedging that is part of my job, such as it is...lol. Not sure how well behaved usdcad is on technicals because hedging is a long-term proposition not day trading. USDCAD tends to make quick big moves between lengthy periods of slow consolidation. Honestly I have high success in this pair for years, which is why I have my job now instead of older brother, lol. I think the pair moves logically based on fundies + sentiment, and it's not important enough for Uncle Ben or Tim to manipulate so I say try it

    GBP/USD


    GBP/USD still remains in a down trend and we did not get a reversal on the break above 1.6215 - this was not so surprising given yesterday's bad ISM outcome. Price keeps in trading lower and a break under 1.6150 will get momentum going.

    Today's key level is 1.6225 but we can also use 1.6250 as key level to give price some space to move. This down trend is very dependent on today's outcome US NFP.

    hi everyone,

    hourly delta - we probably have no.8 bottom (9.30) and no.(8) inverted top - this suggests a down move towards end of the day - but this is NFP friday so things may unfold differently

    edit: 1.6075 or 1.6079 is the bullish line in the sand from ITD perspective - below we have LTD/SLTD top in place.

    edit2: hourly no.8 apparently is late (1.6162) -dip below and we have an inversion
