Forex trading crowds continue selling aggressively into US Dollar (ticker: USDOLLAR) strength against the Euro, British Pound, Swiss Franc, and Canadian Dollar. Our sentiment-based trading strategies favor USD longs against all except the Japanese Yen.
Our forex sentiment-based trading strategies continue buying into US Dollar and Japanese Yen strength across the board, and indeed we believe that strong forex volatility favors our breakout-based and trend-following automated trading systems.
Markets clearly do not move in straight lines, and sharp US Dollar and Japanese Yen gains leave ample room for short-term pullbacks. Yet we believe that the overall trend remains clear, and one-sided sentiment favors continued USD and JPY highs.
