GBPUSD: Shorting the Cable at Resistance

Last week saw a net win for the Cable of 130 pips, mainly due to a strong rally on Wednesday fueled by solid UK employment numbers with average earnings at 3% and the unemployment rate at 5.4%, a 7-year low. This strengthened the Pound while bad US retail and ppi data weakened the Dollar. Not all data was good for the Pound last week, as the latest cpi numbers (an ...

Trading the FOMC event

In 8 hours we will witness the perhaps most anticipated news event in Forex of 2015 so far. The FED will communicate their rate decision, accompanied by a written statement, economic projections and a press conference. The Dollar is fundamentally the strongest currency due to the expectation of a rate hike this year. This sets it apart from currencies like the ...

EURUSD: Trading Confluence on the Fibre

The Fibre had a bullish week, printing a green candle every day for a total gain of 190 pips. We have seen mixed data points for both the Eurozone and the US but the main fundamental driver is obviously next Thursday´s FOMC event (interest rate, policy statement and press conference) as market players are preparing their positions. Not only the Fibre was bullish, ...

The Cable dropped 240 pips last week and over 600 pips (!) the last 9 days without any fundamental reason I can find related to the UK economy or BoE, apart from some purchasing managers' indices missing their expectation. Last Wednesday the US ADP Non-Farm Employment Change missed expectation, signalling a potential miss of NFP on Friday, which did indeed happen. ...

1. Go online and connect with other traders, ask the right questions (keyword: right) and talk shop. Joining TradingView is the best decision I made by far since I started trading. Social networks add value and my trading has improved a lot by being exposed to different ways to trade and by being able to see what works and what does not. But never trust a trader ...

GBPUSD: Quintuple Top on the Cable

Last week the dollar weakened prior to FOMC, helping the Cable rise during the first three days of the week. The UK GDP coming out as expected also supported the rise; illustrating the economy is doing well. In the FOMC statement on Wednesday the FED referred to solid job creation and said there will be an increase in interest rates following 'some further' ...

Last week the Greenback opened bullish on the back of the prior Fridays better-than-expected core cpi readings and strengthened throughout the week. On Tuesday it made strong gains as core durable goods, consumer confidence and new home sales all beat expectations. These positive readings reinforced dollar strength.

Last week the dollar finally traded in line with fundamentals again, with the Dollar Index gaining four out of five days. There had been a strong bearish sentiment surrounding the dollar for the last couple of weeks, helped by key data points coming out unfavourably and when a currency is fundamentally bullish, but sentiment-wise bearish, the result is choppy ...

Last week the main event for the Aussie Dollar happened on Tuesday, when the RBA cut the rates to a record low of 2%.

GBPUSD: The Cable after a week of Elections, Rallies and Spikes

One of the highlights of last week was the UK general election. The cable remained remarkably resilient and even rallied over 200 pips prior to the elections, as a result of the dollar weakening and the UK services pmi coming in better than expected. On the day of the elections itself, it dropped almost 100 pips, due to the uncertainty of there potentially being ...

Stop Losses, Love Them Or Hate Them

Stop losses aim to end a trade when the market goes so far in the opposite direction, that the trade idea no longer makes sense. It’s the point of invalidation. Ideally, they get hit on bad trades only and not on good trades. The area between entry point and stop loss is a zone where the trade is at a loss, but can still recover. This is not an invalidation of the ...

The market anticipated a negative effect on the Australian economy by this Chinese slowdown. Later in the week the pair recovered after some very good Australian employment data caused the market to change its view on an RBA rate cut in ...
