With two hours to go, bitcoin looks set to close today’s trading session unchanged. On BTC-E we opened the day at $352.47 and bounced between $345 and $355 all day. One coin is currently selling for 352.25 on this exchange. The hourly chart below shows today’s session on BTC-E. As the market calmed down a […]

Top Trade Idea for 11/27/2015 – Fibonacci says sell EUR/AUD

In a contest between two weakening currencies, who wins? In the current environment, the currency with the largest central bank. I’d back the RBA to box well above its weight, but it’s just not in the same category as the ECB. A continuation of the current downtrend in EUR/AUD seems likely, and even Leonardo Bonacci […]

USD/CAD Loonie Slightly Higher on US Thanksgiving Despite Softer Oil Prices

The USD depreciated 0.0632 percent versus the CAD during the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday. There was little trading volume during the session. The USD/CAD traded in a range between 1.3320 and 1.3280. The Loonie opened weaker versus the U.S. dollar and as the price of oil dropped as the oversupply narrative grew during the day. As […]

ECB Failure Ruins ‘Short of a Lifetime’

In April, Bill Gross said betting on a decline in the value of German government debt offered the trade of a “lifetime.” Thus far, the strategy has failed to deliver anything like the stellar profits anticipated by Gross. But that says less about the market acumen of the world’s best-known bond investor than it does […]

AUDUSD – Evening Star Casts Doubt on Breakout

After breaking above the descending channel that it has traded within for more than a year, the Australian dollar has failed to gather much momentum against the greenback and once again appears to be struggling to push on. I highlighted on Tuesday (AUDUSD – Bullish Breakout Unconvincing) that while the move above the channel should […]

FX Market Moves Flat Line For Now

U.S markets are closed today for Thanksgiving and will shut early tomorrow. Despite the shortened trading week, dealers and investors have had a plethora of U.S data to consider that could convince an undecided Fed member to shift allegiance. Yesterday’s U.S durable goods data was better than expected (+0.5% vs. -0.3%), while U.S personal spending […]

Bitcoin in Volatile Thanksgiving Session

Bitcoin had a highly volatile Thanksgiving session. On OKCoin we opened at $328.90 and slowly rallied until we hit a high of $369.70 around mid-day. But this $40 dollars rally came to an abrupt stop here as prices tumbled back down to hit $340.55 just few hours later. We are currently quoted at $344.54 on […]

Top trade idea for November 26th, 2015 – EURAUD

Despite the overall bearish tone the ECB is having in the sense that the central bank is expected to cut the rates deeper into negative territory and to extend the quantitative easing program, I kind of like the EURAUD cross at current levels. The reason for that is the fact that the market seems to […]

Iran’s Oil Reserves Await Reentry into Global Market

In a remote corner of Iran, engineers are working round the clock to return the country to the top ranks of global oil producers. The region of Southwest Iran boasts more proven reserves of oil than Africa’s largest producer, Nigeria, and its 60 billion barrels are central to Iran’s ambitions. Drilling is nearly complete in […]

USD/CAD Loonie Flat Despite Strong US Economic Data

The USD/CAD was mostly flat as the strong U.S. economic data was cancelled by the surge in oil prices. The pair is trading at 1.3304 and is trading in a tight range ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday in the States. The U.S. jobless claims posted today instead of Thursday to account for the holiday came […]

Why China ‘Spillover’ Poses Risks for the Euro Zone

China’s economic slowdown could pose risks for the euro area ranging from falling exports, capital outflows and exchange rate fluctuations, the European Central Bank (ECB) said on Wednesday. China is now the second-biggest economy after the U.S. and plays an increasingly major role in global trade. Its economy has slowed each year since 2010 and […]

Huge Amount of US Data in Focus on Wednesday

Attention will be firmly on the U.S. on Wednesday ahead of the Thanksgiving bank holiday, as we get a broad range of important economic indicators that should offer crucial insight into the health of the U.S. economy. When considering whether the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates next month, there is naturally a lot of […]

Oil Bounces Again on Middle East Turmoil

Oil prices rose as much as 3 percent on Tuesday as tensions in the Middle East escalated following the downing of a Russian fighter jet near the Syrian-Turkish border, and a weaker dollar provided an incentive for investors to buy more oil. Brent futures for January were up 96 cents at $45.79 a barrel at […]

USD/CAD Loonie Flies Higher After Oil and Gold Rally

Turmoil in the Middle East as Turkey Downs Russian Aircraft Geopolitical tension triggered a surge in crude prices after Turkey confirmed it had shot down a Russian warplane that it alleged was entering Turkish airspace and refused to communicate.

Carney Faces Grilling from Treasury Select Committee

Europe is expected to open lower on Tuesday, tracking similar losses in the U.S. and Asia as commodities continue to come under pressure, weighed down by the ongoing appreciation in the dollar. We did see a pop in oil on Monday following a pledge from Saudi Arabia to work with OPEC and non-OPEC members to […]

AUDUSD – Bullish Breakout Unconvincing

The Australian dollar has traded within a descending channel against the greenback for more than a year now but in the last couple of days it appears to have finally broken above it, which could be a very bullish signal. The pair broke above the channel on Friday and despite seeing immediate downside pressure on […]

Top trade idea for November 24th, 2015 – USD/CAD

Trading opportunities for currency pair: the USD/CAD rate has returned to the 1.3370 resistance. A strengthening of the rate to 1.3456 is expected before the FOMC convenes with the rate carrying on afterwards to 1.3577.
