Forex: Looking for Short-Term S&P 500, Dollar Taper Adjustments Before Weekend

Forex: Looking for Short-Term S&P 500, Dollar Taper Adjustments Before Weekend

2013-09-13 01:34:00
John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

  • Both GBPUSD and AUDJPY find breakout on a fundamental spark, but trade potential differs
  • Before the weekend and next week's Fed decision, short-term setups have better potential
  • The week's 7-day S&P 500 rally and four-day decline present reversal potential on risk the majors

We are heading into the final 24 hours of the trading week before a pivotal policy decision is expected to be delivered by the Fed. There is limited scope for expecting sizable moves. A perfect illustration of this restraint is GBPUSD, which broke a decisive technical pattern but failed to generate the momentum that would we would expect on such a move. Meanwhile, short-term corrective moves by AUDJPY, EURJPY and other pairs Thursday better fit the conditions we currently face. After a seven-day rally from the Fed and four-day drop for the USDollar - an aggressive speculative move given what lies ahead - there is notable potential for short-term corrections moving forward. We discuss the Taper risk, the risk of adjustment and their trade opportunities in today's video.
