Will the upcoming BTC fork solidify wave 5?

We're less than a week away from the upcoming BTC fork, which (if history repeats itself) may provide the requisite sell-off and subsequent rapid buy-back to propel BTC above the 5800 level. (I have placed a warning sign on the chart to indicate when this is set to occur.) In the context of things these new highs are bittersweet --- the completion of wave 5 ...

Gold on the rise; potential pivot points identified.

Gold appears poised to ascend by means of a modified Schiff pitchfork, with additional fibonacci trendlines drawn (in purple) between the prongs of the pitchfork skeleton exhibiting significant influence on its upward move. Simultaneously, an ABCD pattern has the potential to form within the pitchfork in a fashion that mutually affirms both pattern parameters. ...

EURJPY filling into structure.

Over the past several years, EURJPY has been confined to a limited, contracting range that is wrought with impulse waves and sideways corrections. The current trend is no exception, forming two flags at points of structure drawn out from extended trend lines, thus suggesting a third bullish move may be in order. OBV and A/D indicators affirm the strength of the ...

S&P to (finally) correct?

While I am happy to see the S&P portion of my portfolio reach fresh highs every other day, I have to proceed with caution given the way the market been behaving as of late. Yesterday's failed outside reversal was a major bearish cue, and the technical argument against continued S&P rally is sound. From the weekly, to the daily, to the hourly, we see confluence in ...

USDCAD ready to reverse its freefall

After a bit of a publishing hiatus, I'm excited to publish an idea on a pair with so many signals pointing toward a potential reversal. I have overlaid the UCAD chart with the DXY (dollar index) to show the direct correlation between the two data sets, and how the dollar appears to be winning the figurative "tug of war" between currencies. As the USD begins toying ...

EURCAD: The Year(s) Ahead

It's a rather bold move on my part to publish a prediction just before the weekend in which we will find out the first round results of France's election. The consensus among retail traders is binary: either the EUR will rocket upward or plummet downward in response to the election of Macron or Le Pen, respectively. I would like to think that this mode of thinking ...

XAUUSD: Gold upward -- slowly, but surely.

After a few weeks of struggle to break the 1260 level, XAUUSD has finally popped. Recent U.S. actions against Syria have stirred up an otherwise tepid market with a great deal of money moving into the "safe" assets. While gold has found its footing above previous resistance (at least for today, as we'll see what the weekend brings), every forthcoming detail ...

EURUSD Correction

While the USD has staged an impressive recovery in the past week, positive ADP figures coupled with lower than expected jobless claims paint the picture of an economy starting to run a bit too hot. While the Fed unlikely to hike rates any further than they have already projected in this calendar year, more jobs and a fast growing economy means inflation abound. ...

DXY Upside Correction

While the dollar has taken a beating recently, it appears to be due for a correction relatively soon. The index has rejected the 102.25 level and slid down to monthly lows. The completion of the 2618 motion illustrated above should have caused a cessation and reversal at the 100.15 level (point D) before a modest reversal, but it appears as though bearish momentum ...

NZDCAD: Intersecting signals point up.

Price action on NZDCAD appears to be following a trend supported by multiple trend-channel based support levels that arise when a modified Schiff pitchfork is drawn from 2015 true lows (Sept. 10, 2015) to the 2015 year-end high (Dec. 28, 2015) divided across fresh 2016 lows (Apr. 27, 2016). While the median parallels provide considerable support / resistance, ...

EURUSD Contrarian Argument

I'm going to go contrarian here, since I think the consensus behind NFP payroll numbers coming up is that yes, they will be high; at this point, they can only disappoint. If you recall last month's estimate of 175k blown out by an actual reading of 227k, the dollar weakened in response. Why? (Hint: It's the same reason the dollar weakened under a hawkish ...

EURJPY Bearish Channel Forming

As price action retraces the span from Brexit to EURJPY's year-end highs, a nice channel appears to be forming. Since the channel's inception, price action has not invalidated the outer limits of the channel; a cursory look at large-scale swing lows / swing highs reveals a rather strict adherence to the channel's median parallels. I plan to follow this trend, with ...

NZDUSD Valentine's Day Massacre

With Janet Yellen's testimony in front of Congress keeping USD pairs trading within a rather conservative and cautious range, the game plan moving forward relies heavily on the "post-Fed trend" that occurs once tensions have eased and money starts changing hands again. Since then, Trump's comments on immigration reform, protectionism, and heavily manipulated trade ...

Potential 2618 Trade Taking Shape

A double bottom appears to be forming on the EURUSD, which has the potential to set up a 2618 trade should the bullish candlestick close above the previous outside return before retracing to the .618 of leg AB. This technical setup will, inevitably, face heavy headwinds with regards to fundamental outlook on USD strength. This trade is currently forming in a ...

NZDUSD Bullish Cypher

Riding a short since .74714, and I think it's about time to swing-trade this pattern. I have two targets in mind; one is more conventional for the pattern, but I think there's a chance the .74785 will be retested as part of the ongoing uptrend.

EURUSD Return to Structure: "Enough with FOMC" Edition.

I expect to see EU return to its pre-FOMC consolidation zone in the coming week; a lack of data on both sides of the pair should leave the markets to fluctuate organically and (presumably) return to more stable structure. In this case, the consolidation zone that formed the day before the Fed released its July minutes. Several structural levels have grown out of ...

Likely market reaction to the Fed minutes

It is no surprise that the Fed has been remarkably successful in disappointing the market this year. Now that the year is winding down, the probability (or perceived probability, that is) of a near-term rate hike is gaining some weight. Let's hope to read anything but the words "wait and see" in the FOMC minutes!
