Top Trade Idea For January 22th, 2015 – USDJPY

Another week, another bullish scenario for the usdjpy as I am still looking for the currency pair to make a contracting triangle in the and and this current move to the upside to be nothing but a zigzag. The zigzag should be the d wave, then a small correction for the e wave and 122 […]

Top Trade Idea For January 16th, 2015 – NZD/JPY

The Kiwi made a low against the Yen a couple of days ago at the same level it did in mid-December. Not only that, the declines into these lows both consist of 3 swings. This symmetry increases the possibility that the recent low will turn out to be the base of a rectangle pattern as […]

Top Trade Idea For January 15th, 2015 – USDJPY

Contracting triangle on the usdjpy pair pointing towards the d wave green to the upside and, despite the negativity surrounding the equity markets recently, I am favoring a move to the upside for the pair as it should challenge the 120 level again.

Top Trade Idea For January 14th ,2015 – AUD/USD

Today’s big trading story is undoubtedly the staggering drop in the price of copper. After today’s nearly 5% drop, the industrial metal is down over 14% already this year, building on the 16.6% plunge in 2014. This is particularly concerning because it is said that “Dr. Copper” has a PhD in global economics: due to […]

Top Trade Idea For January 9th ,2015 – NZD/CAD

Sometimes a technical set up comes along that ticks all the boxes. Bollinger Bands are among the most misused technical indicators.

The New Zealand / Canadian dollar cross is currently offering a lesson in […]

First full trading week of 2015 brings us back to the eurusd charts as the pair has been sold aggresivelly on the back of a bearish combination from both fundamental and techincal sides. On the fundamental side, the ECB and FED seem to be on divergent paths and while the ECB is being forced to […]

Top Trade Idea For January 7th,2015 – EUR/NZD

Eurostat today confirmed what many had feared: the Eurozone has dipped into deflation. Undoubtedly, the -0.2% year-on-year reading on the headline CPI for the month of December had a lot to do with the collapse in oil prices, because if you exclude energy (and the volatile food, alcohol and tobacco prices)  inflation was actually +0.8%, […]

Top Trade Idea For January 2nd,2015 – USD/JPY

USD/JPY is likely on most traders’ radar for 2015. Expected dollar strength, and yen weakness, mean over the course of the year further gains for the pair are on the cards. However, markets rarely trade in a straight line, and the current price action may be pointing to another significant pullback before higher ground is […]

As it turns out, the pair just couldn’t muster enough strength to break above the critical barrier, […]

Top Trade Idea For December 24th, 2014 – EUR/USD

It is understandably a very quiet day with the stock markets in Italy and Germany closed for the Christmas Eve. Elsewhere, most traders are probably out today too although that does not necessarily mean the markets won’t move. In fact, the lack of volume means there could be bouts of high volatility. Still, that will […]

Russian Rouble Roulette It’s hard to go past the Russian rouble as the traders’ choice, given the extraordinary volatility.

However, traders willing to adapt to the environment may […]

Top Trade Idea For December 18th, 2014 – AUDUSD

Yesterday’s FOMC decision and press conference was followed by a US dollar buying mood all over the dashboard as the Fed basically gave a timing for the possible future rate hike: a couple of more meetings away. However, if I were to pick an opposite view, I would pick audusd as a good candidate, and […]

Top Trade Idea For December 15th, 2014 – USD/CHF

After three successful USD/NOK (Norwegian krone) long trades in recent weeks, it’s time to look elsewhere. In so doing, we’re not suggesting the oil price fall has ended. However, we have noticed price moving and closing below a four month uptrend line that may be worth some consideration. We’re talking about “the franc” (the Swiss […]

Top Trade Idea For December 12th, 2014 – EUR/JPY

On Monday (Sunday night), the Tankan manufacturing indices for Q4 are released in Japan, along with Tokyo condominium sales.
