USD/JPY: Upside Breakout

Thursday, Jan 31, 2013

Past performance is not indicative of future results

Forex trading is one of the riskiest forms of investment available in the financial markets and suitable for sophisticated individuals and institutions. The possibility exists that you could sustain a substantial loss of funds and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose.

EUR/USD At Elevated Fibonacci Level

Thursday, Jan 31, 2013


Good Afternoon,

Pretty quiet week in SPX - we are treading water sideways, with possible preparation for an upside breakout.

But first, the fundamentals that could support that breakout. Today's CHPM number was better than expected with a surge in new orders and employment. This backs up the Durable Goods data we saw earlier this week. Claims are still steady and we should see "decent" jobs figures tomorrow. And of course, the Fed - still in play (always in play!)

EUR/USD: 1.3500 Level

Tuesday, Jan 29, 2013


Good Afternoon,

Well, we made it through 1500. We topped out at 1508. I have eyed a "blast" through 1500 and maybe the 1510-1515 area as a place that the markets get "tired". The next area would be the "psychological" area of 1525.

I talked earlier about the EUR/USD and the "relationship" between the strength in the EUR and the equity markets. The equity markets had a good day and the EUR had a good day against the USD.

Intraday EUR/JPY Set Up Shaping Up for Breakout

Monday, Jan 28, 2013

Waiting on momentum breakouts/downs out of consolidation can be an alternative to some of the deeper corrections that the market may (or may not make!) so when I see an opportunity to take a more short-term and therefore nimble intraday entry, it’s one that will typically carry a lower risk situation.

Focus on Currencies with Strong Trends

Thursday, Jan 24, 2013

Finding a steady trend in a single currency can make the difference in follow-through as well as help determine which pair(s) to consider for an entry. The “strong kiwi” story and “weak yen” story has been reliable so I look for confirmation of a continuation with just a single currency at times. For example, regardless of the recent pound sterling and Canadian dollar weakness, my expectation for those pairs to rally come from predominantly more yen weakness by comparison.

EUR/USD: Ready For A Breakout?

Tuesday, Jan 24, 2012


Good Afternoon,

Fundamentals continue to improve. We had another better than expected weekly claims number. Next week's unemployment report should print pretty close to the 200k number. By next week, equities could be at new all time highs with they way the confidence the bulls are showing!

USD/JPY: Possible Head and Shoulders?

Wednesday, Jan 23, 2013

Good Afternoon,

Quiet fundamentals aside from earnings. Speaking of earnings, we are about to get AAPL's earnings. Check out the small bounce off the trendline. I talked about this in the "AAPL Breakdown" post last week. But now what. Will this descending triangle act as new resistance? A perfect place for AAPL to be overbought again. But as you know, with earnings, it can be a crapshoot and you need to take extra market volatility into account.

More Central Bank Delays: The BOC Joins the Party.

Wednesday, Jan 23, 2013

With just a few words about the expected 2013 rates hikes, “less imminent than anticipated” and the 2% inflation target being reached mid-2014 and not this years (as expected) and crude oil has now headed into its seasonal maintenance thus dropping refiners’ demand for crude oil. Commodities have also been in a holding pattern as a vote pending in Congress would suspend the “debt ceiling” until May 18.
