WEEKLY EURJPY - This week's trade idea and technicals

Last week’s signals were bearish and these were confirmed with initial losses of over 1 Big Fig. However, for the 4th week in a row buyers have returned to the market from close to the 200 week average rate, sentiment recovering to close little changed on the week overall, the 5th little changed week in succession. Last week’s “outside range” (lower low & higher high) also reflects investor indecision, but although signals are weak there is a cautiously

DAILY SPOT EURJPY - Thursday's call and technicals

Bearish signals on the week and for Tuesday have been confirmed with a strong 1 ½ Big Fig sell-off. However, with intraday sentiment oversold from close to November’s 127.49 base and to the 200 week average rate, yesterday’s signals highlighted the potential for a temporary recovery and the call was to stay square on the open and to sell the rally at 128.48. The market did in fact bounce in low volume, reaching the sell area post European close. As expected, bears have returned to the market and Thursday signals continue to point lower and the call is to sell on the open and then at 128.32, to...

DAILY DEC'18 DAX - Tuesday's trade idea and technicals

Dec Contract – The end of a sequence of lower weekly highs has kept this week’s signals pointing higher. These have already been confirmed with a strong near 250 Pt open, but with the rally attracting sellers for sentiment to deteriorate by almost 150 Pts from the day’s 11566.5 top. The pullback has weakened intraday sentiment though

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...

DAILY DEC'18 DAX - Friday's trade idea and technicals

Dec Contract – The end to a trend of lower daily highs, as well as a sequence of unchanged daily closes kept Thursday’s signals for DAX pointing higher.

DAILY DEC'18 DAX - Thursday's trade idea and technicals

Wednesday’s signals for DAX pointed to selling the rally and this was the correct strategy for the morning session as initial gains were given up. The 650 Pt rally since October’s 22 month low and the pullback since Friday’s high had occurred mostly on gaps,

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.
