FXE and FXY: Carry trade unwind triggers longterm rally
After seeing the reaction to this event, I conclude that both FXE and FXY are reversing the longterm downtrend, judging by post pattern behavior after forming a clear bottom.
This currently eludes traditional analysts (save for a select few like our local AndyM who did a great job with his analysis). I recently began studying from Glenn Neely's book, and read his updates on the new chart patterns he discovered in the 90s, and the one that concluded the impulsive tops/bottoms in most major instruments is a diametric corrective structure. A 7 wave pattern, with similar time between swings and an expanding/contracting or contracting/expanding price range during its progression.
Time at mode forewarned us of this situation, and it's now confirmed based on the last week and this week's behavior that the trend is done for.
I estimate a return to the monthly mode as a safe bet target for these instruments, which would be an impressive rally in the euro and yen, so, I'll be looking for opportunities on the long side on both.
Gold is unclear to me yet, but it's possible that the impulse that we recently saw was the beginning of a new uptrend as well, just that it has a complex bottom formation, which I haven't analyzed in this light in the proper depth required yet. (proper analysis is really time consuming, and not too practical for trading, but I like keeping it as a secondary tool)
I guess that you could purchase calls or sell puts to profit from these instruments reversal, or trade the Forex pairs with leverage as well.
Good luck, and see you at the top.
