DAILY SPOT AUDUSD - Thursday's call and technicals

Although weekly signals have continued to point lower, the end to a sequence of lower daily highs switched Wednesday’s signals to bullish and to buying the dip at .7106. Although initial gains of almost ½ Big Fig attracted sellers from ahead of the 50 day average rate for sentiment to close little changed, signals continue to point higher and the outlook for Thursday remains cautiously bullish and the call is to buy on the open and then at .7090, today’s opening trade in Asia with a stop loss at .7067, just below today’s Asia base. Targets are to .7137, yesterday’s high, .7156, the 13 day aver...

SPOT GBPUSD - Wednesday's trade idea & signals

Bearish signals on the week have been confirmed, but with a near 4 Big Fig sell-off since January’s 1.3217 high stalling at 1.2831, a 50% pullback to the entire 2019 gains, yesterday’s bearish outlook was cancelled as signals improved. The bounce is positive, but there is no clear bullish reversal pattern. Signals continue to improve though, so with a good deal of caution the outlook for Wednesday is for a counter-trend recovery and the call is to buy on the open and then at 1.2860, yesterday’s opening trade with a stop loss at 1.2830, the 3 week base. Targets are to 1.2916, the 100 day averag...

DAILY MAR'19 DAX - Tuesday's trade idea and technicals

Mar'19 Contract – The end to a sequence of higher weekly lows has kept this week’s signals pointing lower. However, Friday’s buying from close to 10827.0, a 50% pullback to the Dec-Feb gains extended on Monday, sentiment improving by almost 100 Pts. Although this is mildly positive, the rally is probably corrective and temporary, but with no sign yet that it is ending the outlook for Tuesday remains bullish and the call is to buy on the open and at 11004.0, yesterday’s close with a stop loss at 10921.5, yesterday’s low. Targets are to 11100.0, 11183.0, at 11183.0, a 62% recovery to February’s ...

GOLD – bullish, but potential for pullback.

A 10 year rally in GOLD throughout the 2000’s has stalled:,  but with deteriorating sentiment between 2011 and 2015 attracting buyers back to the market from close to 1087.5, a key 50% correction to the gains. Last year’s bounce has also stalled, - ahead of 1421.2, a 50% recovery to the 2012-2015 losses and a quarterly Shooting Star signalled a pullback which tested but failed to break the lows. Renewed buying in 2017 has been in sympathy with a weak US$ exchange rate and the rally has taken the market into thick Cloud Cover and to test last year’s high. There is no sell signal or sign tha...

Wednesday’s signals continued to point cautiously lower, but with this week’s losses from in between the 50 & 100 day average rates also potentially corrective and temporary the call was a cautious one. This was confirmed with losses of 1½ Big Fig and a close below the 13 day line. A sequence of higher weekly lows has been broken and with signals continuing to point lower, but with intraday sentiment oversold the outlook for Thursday is just cautiously bearish and the call is to sell just modestly on the open and then at 78.61, the 13 day line with a stop loss at 79.09, Tuesday’s low trade.

SPOT AUDUSD - Wednesday's trade idea & signals

Tuesday’s signals pointed to staying long and buying the dip. Although this was the correct strategy, sentiment in Europe traded mainly sideways for a little changed close. However, renewed selling in Asia this morning has taken prices back below their 50 day average rate and with signals weakening the outlook for Wednesday is bearish and the call is to sell on the open and then at .7180 with a stop loss at .7220. Targets are to .7138, last week’s low, .7083, the 2 week base and .7010.

DAILY MAR'19 DAX - Tuesday's trade idea and technicals

Mar'19 Contract – The end to a sequence of higher weekly lows has kept this week’s signals pointing lower. However, Friday’s buying from close to 10827.0, a 50% pullback to the Dec-Feb gains extended on Monday, sentiment improving by almost 100 Pts. Although this is mildly positive, the rally is probably corrective and temporary, but with no sign yet that it is ending the outlook for Tuesday remains bullish and the call is to buy on the open and at 11004.0, yesterday’s close with a stop loss at 10921.5, yesterday’s low.

DAILY MAR'19 DAX - Friday's trade idea and technicals

Mar'19 Contract – Although signals identified Tuesday’s strong rally to a fresh 2019 high at 11385.0, Wednesday’s indecision and divergence on momentum indicators switched yesterday’s signals to negative. These too were confirmed with a strong over 300 Pt bearish reversal, a sell-off which has ended a developing trend of higher weekly lows. This is negative, but with intraday signals oversold the outlook for Friday is to sell just modestly on the open and then at 11070.0 with a stop loss at 11168.5, Tuesday’s low. Targets are to 10960.0, the 18th Jan low, 10827.0, a 50% pullback to the Dec-Feb...

DAILY MAR'19 EUROSTOXX - Tuesday's trade idea and technicals

Mar'19 Contract – Dip buying has been dominating sentiment since December’s 2 year base at 2895, and this week’s signals have continued to point higher. While this trend was extended yesterday as initial losses were recovered, 6 little changed daily closes in a row has left intraday trend signals weak. There is no sell signal though, and for this reason the outlook for Tuesday is just cautiously bullish and the call is to buy on the open and then at 3155 with a stop loss at 3140, yesterday’s base. Targets are to 3175, last week’s high, 3195 and 3229, the last 9 week open.

DAILY MAR'19 EUROSTOXX - Friday's trade idea and technicals

Mar Contract – A near 200 Pt rally since December’s 2 year low at 2895 has attracted sellers this week at the same 3078 level as last week. This is in between a 50-62% recovery to the entire Dec sell-off. Although this is an area which mat attract sellers back to the market, so far there is no bearish reversal pattern and Thursday’s signals were mixed and neutral. These were confirmed as for the 2nd day in a row sentiment traded sideways inside Tuesday’s range for a little changed close. For Friday though, gains into last night’s close have left a cautiously bullish bias to signals and the cal...

SPOT EURUSD - signals revert to bullish, but look for pullback

​ Although our first downside target was met Wednesday, European trading saw limited movement in EURUSD. But the underlying positive tone, reflected in this week's report, reasserted post FOMC with a powerful move of more than a big figure. This kept the currency pair near the top of a bullish Keltner channel and took the market to new 2 ½ year highs. Of course, the speed and scope of the move means intraday signals for sentiment are overbought, especially after further Asian gains, but it is likely that a probable negative reaction will prove temporary. Therefore, our call for this morning is...

DAILY BUND - signals not strong, but bearish bias

Bunds continue trading in a range around the 13 day mvg avg and a Marabuzo line created on Sep 27th. Yesterday's initial lows and the subsequent highs were both rejected and this, and the recent 8 day trendlessness, cannot supply firm intraday signals for sentiment. So caution is demanded of any analysis. Nonetheless our intraday studies are mildly negative and so, with a good deal of caution, this morning’s call is a Sell but leaving room to Sell any Rally to 161.49. The risk is this month’s 161.82 top with an immediate target of 161.07, this week's low. A move through that point then exposes...

DEC'17 EUROSTOXX - bullish sentiment returns and signals point to buying dips

Dec'17 Contract – Ahead of Wednesday’s FOMC sentiment for EUROSTOXX has been trading sideways with futures prices little changed for 7 days in a row. However, in line with the bullish weekly call buyers have returned to the market post-meeting on Wednesday, sentiment rallying by 23 Pts on the day. With no sign that demand is ending, but with daily sentiment still overstretched the outlook for Thursday is to buy modestly on the open and then at 3523, Wednesday’s Marabuzo line with a stop loss at 3504, the window which has remained open since last week’s close. Targets are to 3545/50, 3574, the ...

DAILY SPOT AUDUSD - shooting star and end to higher lows signals temporary pullback

Although a trend of higher weekly lows highlights bullish AUDUSD sentiment and the demand to buy dips, a daily Shooting Star at Friday’s 27 month high at .8126 has signalled the potential for a temporary pullback. This is occurring with Monday’s near ½ Big Fig losses ending a trend of higher daily lows. With no sign that the correction is ending, the outlook for Tuesday is to sell on the open and then at .8038, Monday’s Marabuzo line with a stop loss at .8074, yesterday’s high. Targets are to .8003, today’s Asia low, .7973, Thursday’s base and .7932, last week’s low trade.

WEEKLY SPOT USDCAD - bounces provide selling opportunities

Last week's negative call was confirmed and all our downside targets were met as a 4th down week in a row was posted. USDCAD was sold to lower levels each day with the market hugging the bottom of falling daily & weekly Keltner channels. In addition more than half of the 2012-16 rise has now been corrected. Signals for sentiment are oversold and there is potential for Friday’s profit taking reaction to extend in early price action. But the undertone is clearly bearish and so our call for this week is a Sell but leaving room to Sell any Rally to 1.2242, Thursday’s high. The risk is 1.2374, Wedn...

SPOT AUDUSD - overbought, but dip buying dominating investor sentiment

Bullish signals for AUDUSD on the week and for Thursday have been confirmed, investors buying the market yesterday to post a 5th higher daily low & high in a row and a gain of ½ Big Fig on the day. There is no sign that the demand to buy dips is ending, but with intraday sentiment much overstretched pullbacks must be expected. Against this background the outlook for Friday is to buy only modestly on the open and then at .8090 with a stop loss at .8042, today’s Asia low. Targets are to .8135, .8163, the May 2015 top and .8220.
