Well, well, well! Last week the data for the USD came out splendid in my favor. We even managed to stop out mean reversion techies, several banks and their clients and many other short players that focus purely on the tech side of analyzing the markets.


Lots of support here to go long SO FAR. I am watching that level for a reaction and a reason to enter again. I most likely will BUY the shorts because they will also buy themselves to cover their losing positions

Of course, I am bearing in mine that the USD data must remains positive.

It is a quiet week this wek until Thursday. So, I have my alarm set at 102.30 just in case it is reached before Thursday.

My quarterly target remains the same. Of course, like the GBPUSD             target of 1.26, 1.26 and 1.16, it may be met sooner than later.

Comment: If it doesn't fall down to deeper level, then I am happy with holding this position further.

Risks: Risk-off mood swings (same as before). And, if that happens, prepare a long at the 102.55 level. Targets are all the same.

Comment: Advance GDP q/q data is coming out in a few hours. It is expected to grow at 2.5%, more than the previous 1.4%. If that happens, expect a big dollar rally. The fed will need to raise rate the next day (joking).

What has me a little concerned is that the GDP coming out won't reflect this months amazing retail sales data for the US economy. Retail sales does play a big chuck of the GDP economic pie. And last month, retail sales were -0.2%, so this may effect the GDP; however, going forward, we know that we have investment demand, and with the US election coming up (given that Hillary Clinton stands a chance at winning), I remain confident in the dollar, and I believe that a pullback will cause investors to buy at falling and bargain prices.

So, I will have to read the data coming out and break down the GDP to make sense of it all, and then make an informed decision about it, taking into account our quarterly view. We may in the end just ignore any bad number and look at other economic points that are good for the GDP a month or two from nice, like this months retail sales.

Going in with an open mind! Happy Halloween!

I agree with your viewpoint on USDJPY.

Let talk about GBPUSD, i think it bounce back to 1.26 or 1.28 (anyway below 1.30) then head south to test 1.2.

If break, bottom unknown? Your comment.

I am watching it. For, GBPUSD I have a to re-evaluate and watch the news. That was a 900 pip tumble last week. I like your viewpoint though. I don't see bulls jumping in the UK now; especially before the inflation report in November. I would be a scared bull before that. Also, as an investor, I would not want to invest in the UK right now either. So, I am out with a profit. I have to just wait on higher time frames and listen to the radio.

Hehe.... no. Final targets have not been reached. I have been very tired lately. All my quarterly targets have been met...so I am working overtime in trading this quarter. I said I was going to take a break, but I just like it.

I was waiting for it to hold above 104.36 today. It looks like that is not going to happen. So, I have to listen to the Squawk all night to see what will happen.

Cryptic..yes.. I've been also working hard experimenting with some interesting things, and so I have to label it on the chart so that I won't forget what I was thinking. hehe..

Don't wear yourself out buddy. Looking forward to seeing what will happen next year for your analysis.
- I trust that you believe the recession is right around the corner as well. I am looking forward to piggybacking on your fundamentals for the crashes.
