Macroeconomic Analysis And Trading Ideas

Macroeconomic analysis focuses on national economies (or in the case of the Eurozone at the euro area) and examines their health. This is done by interpreting the economic indicators for the following areas: growth (business climate, GDP), inflation (consumer price index, producer price index), employment (unemployment claims, jobless claims) and production (factory orders, building permits).

It also takes into account any geopolitical developments that could cause risk in the market (elections, natural disasters) as well as the monetary policies and actions of Central Banks, like changing interest rates (that can encourage or discourage investors), quantitative easing (that can spur the economy and inflation) and language used in press conferences and announcements. Understanding how these elements influence currency strength gives a forex trader an edge. TradingView has an economic calendar that ties news events to the time scale in an intuitive way.

I like this fundamental situation surrounding the euro. We have inflation inching up and talk is ramping up about rate hikes in the ecb. On the other hand we have this conflict in the US politics that is weighing on the dollar. In the last 2 days we made a simple corrective move from the 1.09 swing high. A perfect situation in my view to buy this dip looking for ...

Our thoughts on the single currency this morning...

Despite the H4 demand at 1.0752-1.0769 holding firm yesterday, the EUR is under noticeable pressure. The selloff from the 2016 yearly opening level at 1.0873 has been strong. According to the weekly timeframe, and this is assuming that price also remains below resistance at 1.0819, the next downside target does not come into view until the 2017 yearly opening ...

Gold is at a confluence of pivots

Gold. A short analysis of the current technical position. We make no apology for focusing on the Technical Analysis aspects rather than the fundamentals. The Gold price IS largely propelled by expectations of price trajectory. That is to say the price of gold is largely driven by expectations of the price of gold! Whether we discuss anticipated buying from savers ...

We have a full house of markets; Euro still alone holding against the flow. NFP was a clear overshoot sending signals that hikes are beginning to weight heavier in equities.

Gold is inside a mid term downside trend, probably due to the FED monetary policy which is driving USD up. On the chart, is it materialized with the downside trendline (in blue) and the mid and long terms moving averages (MA100 and MA200), still bearish. At the current price level, the buying forces are facing a triple barrier : - the previous top at 1263.87$ ...

The end of the downtrend in the euro is around the corner, whilst there is little support below 1.04x a break below certainly unlocks ...

Monero: Fail me once, not twice.

Monero's bullish tendency will consolidate towards the middle of December. Around the same time, I expect bitcoin to have its last move down due to the decision the FED will be taking on december 16th about the interest rates in the US. Considering this, we can expect around Nov 30th - Dec 1st a move down in Monero towards the 0.0092-0.0094 area to continue ...

I believe being a contrarian just for the sake of it is a fool's game. However, there are certain circumstances, when a contrarian view is warranted. I believe the dollar rally to be one of these special circumstances, I explained my reasons in my previous charts. First of all, I am not sure the dollar rally ended. As I am as sure as I can be from a trading ...
