Strategy Video: Evaluating EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY Breakout Potential

Strategy Video: Evaluating EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY Breakout Potential

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• Many pairs - including EURUSD, GBPUSD and USDJPY - are close to technical breakouts

• Not all of the scenarios look ideal through technical, fundamental and market condition analysis

• EURUSD is a medium-term opportunity, GBPUSD will struggle but the Yen crosses have better mix

There are a number of major currency pairs - and other asset benchmarks - that are close to bullish or bearish breakouts. Yet, are these technical patterns that are likely to play out? What is their potential for follow through? Is the risk/reward ratio and time frame adding up? In today's Strategy Video, we use a number of the concepts we have discussed recently (three analysis types, time frames, risk-reward, potential versus probability) and evaluate the trade potential for EURUSD, GBPUSD and the Yen crosses.
