Top trade idea for July 30st, 2015 – AUDUSD

Top Trade Idea for July 29th, 2015 – USD/JPY

It’s been a quiet overnight session for most major currencies as market participants refrained from placing large trades ahead of today’s FOMC meeting.

Top Trade Idea for July 28th, 2015 –XAU/USD

Gold is trading at new lows, currently around the trendline connected from the start of 2014 where support can be found, especially if we consider the shape of an ending diagonal placed in fifth wave.

Top trade idea for July 23rd, 2015 – EURUSD

I am looking at a bullish scenario for the eurusd pair and the fact that we’ve managed to break the pivotal area to the upside should provide support on each and every retest now. As a target to the upside the 1.14 should be retested again and that should be the moment where we will […]

Top Trade Idea for July 22nd, 2015 – EUR/USD

The one hour chart of the EUR/USD shows that it may have formed a near-term double top at 1.0965.

[…]

Top Trade Idea For July 17th, 2015 – NZD/JPY

It’s been a rough few weeks for the Kiwi Dollar with falling milk prices, weak inflation and expectations of a second rate cut at next week’s central bank meeting.

Top trade idea for July 16th, 2015 – USD/CAD

Usdjpy back above 124.00 level on the back of a strong US earning season and Greece being “fixed” but I would say it is only a matter of time until the downside should be checked again. The reason for that comes from the technical point of view and not from the fundamental in the sense […]

Top trade idea for July 9th, 2015 – USDCAD

Still bearish on the usdcad despite recent pullback in the pair and from my point of view we have only one possibility for the structure above: a flat with a weak b wave and the last c wave to the upside, the one in red, is a corrective wave. This means it should be completely […]

Top Trade Idea for July 8th, 2015 – NZD/USD

The NZD/USD’s long-term downward trend has accelerated in the past couple of months.

Top Trade Idea for July 3rd, 2015 – Sell AUD/NZD

It’s been a lousy week for milk prices but arguably and even worse one for iron ore.

Top trade idea for June 26th, 2015 – EUR/USD

On Monday, this blog piece laid out a strategy to go triple short EUR/USD.

Top trade idea for June 25th, 2015 – AUDUSD

Despite desperate efforts from Governor Stevens and other RBA members to talk down the Australian dollar, the audusd pair is holding the recent levels quite good and the fact that is not able to clearly break the 0.77 area brings into question a possible reversal pattern. In this case, in the chart above I am […]
