There is a nice short setting up here in the EUR/USD as it trades back up against resistance at the 1.2850 level.  Traders looking for a quick win could target the next level of major support which is right around the 1.2700 area.  There is a nice resistance level on the hourly chart right at […]

Trade of the Day for March 27th – Short AUD/USD

For anyone who missed it yesterday AUD/USD hit my entry level of 1.0485 yesterday from my March 18th piece “Watching for a short in the AUD/USD“.  As we have only traded off about 50 pips from that level there is still enough of a risk reward on the trade to enter in my opinion.  Read […]

Trade of the Day for March 22nd – Short GBPUSD

This is a followup to the short idea that I put out last week in GBP/USD which you can read here.   Since that time the pound has rallied substantially, however it is still below the 1.5300 suggested stop area on the original trade.  For anyone who missed that trade idea the setup is looking […]

Trade of the Day for March 21st – Long Gold

By Jamie Saettele Commodity Analysis: Gold is nearing its first big test since longs were established in late February. 1620/25 might trigger a reaction (although I’d expect it to be minor). Stronger resistance is probably 1639-1652, which are former pivots that intersect trendlines starting next week. 1585-1600 is support. Commodity Trading Strategy: Move risk up on […]

Trade of the Day for March 20th – Short USD/CAD

Nice short setting up here in the USD/CAD.  This is similar to the thesis I posted earlier in the week on the AUD/USD, the difference is that this trade is ready to go today where the AUD/USD is one to watch.  Triangle on the daily chart, nice area to put a stop just above the […]

Trade Idea for March 14th – Long USD/JPY as Yen Weakness Should Continue to Perpetuate

The smooth upward trend in the USD/JPY and Thursday’s weak January Japanese industrial production continued to weight on the Yen.  The Industrial Production was revised to 0.3% from 1.0% after a 2.4% increase in December.  Soft Japanese data continues to generate headwinds for the yen as it is seen strengthening the case of BOJ aggressiveness.  […]

Trade Idea of the Day for March 13th – Long GBP/USD

By Jamie Saettele, CMT Long GBP/USD at market (current 1.4915) stop 1.4790 targets 1.5220 and open. The GBPUSD reversed from just below the 61.8% retracement of the 2009 range (1.3500-1.7042) yesterday.

Nice Long Term Short Here in the British Pound (GBP/USD)

A little late to the party here but GBP/USD still looks like an excellent long term short to me.  As you can see on the daily chart below there is not a whole lot of support before the 1.3900 level or more than 1000 pips from our current level.  There is also a nice area […]
