Fundamental Analysis And Trading Ideas

Fundamental analysis is one of the true cornerstones of investing. It looks at what causes price to move up or down and uses this to anticipate and profit from future price moves. It can be used to analyze a national economy by examining areas like growth, employment and inflation. It can be used to analyze an individual company by examining its financial statements like assets, liabilities and earnings as well as its management and competition.

Fundamental analysis can also be applied to whole industries by examining the drivers of supply and demand. There are many different fundamental trading and investment strategies and most of them try to determine the fair value of an instrument by analyzing the underlying drivers of price. If the actual market price of an instrument differs from this fair value, it will eventually gravitate towards it, as long as none of the fundamental drivers change. Fundamental traders also look at price action, but technical analysis is usually limited to support and resistance.

GBPUSD: Now we have confirmation for my stupid short idea...
The technical chart has confirmed a weekly downtrend in the Pound as I expected, and despite being trailed out in profit, I'm looking to reenter shorts with force at market open, with a significant position size, aiming to risk 0.5-1% if the idea fails. In this news article, it's hinted that May will talk about a ...

Cypher pattern on the USD/CAD
This week's play for the USD/CAD is to short USD as the Dollar index is looking to decline even further. Until the USD Index reaches next support level at roughly 100 even handle, or perhaps upper 99 levels, this potential cypher pattern should respond with the dollar to rebound off support.

Cable, sovereign debt crisis
We are looking at a trend change in British pound so pay close attention to events ahead. A close above 12674 will be bullish and a close below 12200 will warn of possible decline. A risk to see complete monetary reform as early as 2018 exists, the long term risk adjusted in real terms for inflation also remains ...

After The Trump USD Rally, What's Next?
Afternoon guys.. 2016 was a roller coast for markets. A year ago investors were in panic about deflation, indeed as the year progressed a good case inflation scenario unfolded. The market reaction following the US elections was even faster that expected. In real terms the USD is ~8% above its 20y average but ...

Gold safety.
I think the bottom is in @ 1122. US inflation data is out on the 18th of this month. I expect this to increase with negative real rates which is good for gold. I also expect gold to rise on anticipation of this. Another big factor is Trump's inauguration date on the 20th of January. Since the US equity market ...

Gold - Short and Long term picture
My belief is that Gold has reached the Centerline target and will now fall to 1160 or possibly to the bull trend line from 2007 (Dark Green) (2nd chart in comments shows bigger picture - bull/bear trendline origination). If we fall past 1160 and bounce from the Green trendline, I expect a more rapid bounce ...

I have been long miners since November 14th, and am currently only down a few percent. I am by no means a scalper, so keep that in mind when you view this idea.

KSS: Good level to add to longs, or get in if flat
I think we have good odds here. Risking a drop to 34.57 is conservative, you could also wager on price not going under 39.50 but I'd rather have more margin of error initially. I'm long from higher and doubled my position here since I think it's a low risk spot for the post earnings momentum to end. Within the ...

Continued idea from before. For some reason there is a delusional expectation that the USD will rally due to Trump and "interest rates". I strongly believe it will fall during 2017. Strong bear divergence in the RSI, as well as the fact that the RSI has rolled over.
