  • Key levels in forex tend to draw attention to traders in the market. These are psychological prices which tie into the human psyche and way of thinking. Learn about psychological levels here: https://t.co/8A1QhwMVKo https://t.co/ttuTdWFDD5
  • Long $USDCNH was one of my favorite setups for the 2nd quarter btw. I maintain, I like the fundamentals; but the greenback's recent battering needs to relent before this can perform
  • The Dollar's tumble this past week was an abrupt one. We'll see if inflation pressures trigger a shift in risk and rate expectations in the US which could turn the USD's bearings. Meanwhile, a pair I haven't highlighted ... https://t.co/yXl1aoOlIy https://t.co/TWV7tqv2y8
  • $DOGEUSD's daily range post Elon SNL spot is 0.2900. That may not sound like a lot but the current spot rate is ~ 0.5600. The lower wick (reversal from Sunday's low) is a 35% recovery from the low. A speculator's market, not an investor's. https://t.co/hAjg8YO7xA

  • Last week ended well for $EURUSD, with Friday’s shockingly poor US jobs data giving it a lift, and this week could well see its advance extend if it can break conclusively above resistance at 1.2150. Get your market update from @MartinSEssex here: https://t.co/EFPGUI8Uxc https://t.co/LZA6oXsmJO
  • $GBPUSD broke higher from a Symmetrical Triangle pattern late last week. Meanwhile, $EURGBP remains largely rangebound. Get your market update from @FxWestwater here: https://t.co/hnjGCww0ET https://t.co/0LcIv5Yudg

The COT Index is the difference between net speculative positioning and net commercial positioning measured. A light blue colored bar indicates that the difference in positioning is the greatest it has been in 52 weeks (bullish) with speculators selling and commercials buying. A light red colored bar indicates that the difference in positioning is the greatest it has been in 52 weeks (bearish) with speculators buying and commercials selling. Crosses above and below 0 are in bold. Non commercials tend to be on the wrong side at the turn and commercials the correct side. Use of the index is covered closely in detail in my book.
