“USDCAD has fallen apart which ironically means it is probably going to find some sort of low soon. The rate is nearing important price levels. The 2011 high at 1.0657 and current year open at 1.0634 are possible supports...

I made an earlier post on the NZDUSD pair stating the possibility of this pair rebounding from a support and established a very specific set of conditions for that possibility. It looks like NZDUSD is really going nowhere, but down! First off, the daily chart is what we will look at...

“The miserable trading conditions in USDJPY are probably explained by its long term Elliott wave position. That is, the rate has been mired in a corrective 4th wave all year. The good news is that wave 4 probably ends soon. Keep focused on the Elliott channel...

“Don’t forget about the line that extends off of the 1996 and 2007 highs. That line crosses through the 2008, 2011, and highs as well. In 2011 (record free float high), the rate surged through the line in late July before topping on August 1st...

“The combination of the .9400 figure and weekly RSI failing near 60 indicates a lot of overhead to punch through. Since the 2011 top, each RSI failure near 60 has led to a top or topping process (range for several weeks then a breakdown...that may be the case now...

Estimated pivot point is at the level of 1.0857. Our opinion: Buy the pair from correction above the level of 1.0857 with the target of 1.1060. Alternative scenario: Breakout and consolidation below the level of 1.0857 will make it possible for the price to continue the decline to the level of 1...

“Of note is a weekly outside reversal and weekly RSI rolling over from above 70 this week. Prior instances of RSI rolling over (2004, 2006, and 2007) from above 70 indicated tops of at least several months.” GBPUSD has traded back to the year open (1.6565). 1.6565 to the March low (1...

Estimated pivot point is at the level of 1.6640. Our opinion: Sell the pair from correction below the level of 1.6640 with the target of 1.64 – 1.63. Alternative scenario: Breakout and consolidation above the level of 1.6640 will make the price continue the rise to the levels of 1.67 – 1...

“Long term, a failed breakout and top would keep with the pattern of 3 year cycle tops. 1.3750 is an important reference point (year open).” The break of 1.3476 completed a topping process with targets of 1.3294 (origin of diagonal), 1.3209 (2 equal legs), and 1.3012 (head and shoulders target...

All eyes are on the Fed. When will it begin to raise interest rates? Some say next summer. Others think sooner, in the first quarter of next year. A few Fed governors insist that will be too late, that the Fed needs to act before year-end...

USDCNH is a great carry trading pair. Selling this pair will net both a positive swap figure as well as ride the down trend. The daily time frame shows the down trend beginning on May 28, 2014, but is expected to continue. With the strong economic growth in China, the yuan is appreciating...
