    thanx for the advices

    thank you very much for the advices and the information for Mr.Lee, Mr.Gregory and Mr.Sean
    now i choose to lock the position, take a short position at 86.80
    How can i know that the trend is still strong to downtrend?? so that i can cut my long position, then hold my short position to gain a more profit?? why the usd/jpy currency still in downtrend?? is that because the fundamental or the technical?? and what is SSI?? why we use that??
    sorry for the questions, but i really want to improve my knowledge, and i do appreciate for the answers..

    so this mean that for a couple day ahead jpy would be in 84.67 area?? i use the 9 ema and 100 ema for close to know the trend, if the 9 ema cross the 100 ema line upward , can i say that the trend will be in uptrend? or just a retracement??
    once again thanks for the reply Mr. Gregory

    I've learnt to use the 200 and 50 DAY SMAs to guage the trend. I strongly recommend the FXCM Power Course. You will learn (through video and instructor support) about various indicators, time frames, support and resistance, etc. It's a solid start to your FOREX education. There are also live chart, instructor led webinars you can get involved in. I'm not sure how you can get to those without a live FXCM account. Maybe you can get access using a demo account. I'm sure Greg can point you in the right direction. It's well worth it and FREE!

    All the best,

    Lee.

    Education is for life, so is FOREX. Never stop learning!

This is why we look at technicals support and resistance levels to confirm the SSI signal.
    Thanks Greg.
    Yes, indicators do have their off days, but I think SSI is a good measure of how the market is stacking up. I look for things like, price action with MACD and RSI divergence, but I've been caught out with that method.

    I have the basics, but really need to develop the connections to move me forward.

    All the best,

    Lee.

    The Bush Tax Cuts

    I would watch what the current administration does about the Bush tax cuts for a precursor to the direction of the risk trade - if they decide to extend the tax cuts -because raising taxes now on anyone is a bad idea - the equities markets and the risk trade will rocket in my opinion - what do you guys think???

    Hi ALL,

    Never a dull in moment in forex,....oh wait, except today. SHEESH! She's sliding around today like a snake not a dragon!

    Anyway, I liked your chart Arthurs!....To me it screams buy! Unless we get a break of 132(close) on the 4 hr I am pretty dang bullish here!!!!

    She's ready to blow boys!

    Having said that, I would also like to make this point about summer FX markets...they are highly unpredicatable and extremely! range bound, so after watching the doldrums set in we could get just listless trading for the next 4-6 weeks...., and I think the S&P will settle below 1040 before a retest of 1130, which from the risk perspective lends itself to more yen strength. Wait and see...


    Hey about the GAP north...I tried to illustrate it with a daily chart last week (couldn't load it properly)....its just that the dailies could potentially fill the space between the April 19th,27th close and low respectively and June 3rd, 14th close and high respectively....that's all. If you look at all the pivot swing high/lows from the 160ish top, we seem to be able to retest them repeatedly, which is consistent with a major wave 5, and near the weekly downtrend line! Hey, 4-6 weeks could send us hurdling toward 128 and then 137-139, so its anyone's guess. TLORD seems to think 128 is closer than 139! Could be-- cause that fits with risk aversion in equities....and 1040 or less on the S&P and the retest of 1130. Its just that everything and everyone is so dang bearish!

    COOL,Joes, where u at dogs!? We need bears commentary......and you've been dead right on that side.

    Ha Ha Watch the Herd, 128 might be closer now, but not for much longer.

    I'm for staying Long, but will have my shorts close to hand

    P.s Sooner rather than later.

    Here is what I think for the next 12 hours. Once it breaks out of a consolidation area it should penetrate 131.30 support line and open doors for 126 support but lets wait and see anything is possible and will happen...

    I'm vey bearish and will look for the next breakout to occur to enter short but till then I'm still bullish...

    P.S. SSI suggest for more losses, so be careful on longs

    Here we come bears!!! Arghhhh!!!!

    Thanks for your charts brother wan,

    I have longed since last night's drop to 131.8, with longs from 131.8 to 132.5. My target includes .500 fib at 133.8 and .618 fib at 134.3. Valid if 4H candle can close above .382 fib at 133.4 (failure to close above on yesterday's 4H candle).

    Will turn bearish once again when 4H candle is red and bearish

    At the mean time, happy trading to all

    It has been going down. So I sell rallies near resistance.
