Dollar Versus Kiwi and Aussie November 9th // 08 Nov. 2011

AUD/USD formed another hammer on the daily chart for Tuesday, and the 1.03 level looks like it is going to be supportive. Play video >>

NZD/USD fell back below the 0.8000 level over the past week, but did print a hammer on the Friday close. USD/CAD busted back through the parity level, and looks like it wants to challenge the 1.02-1.03 levels. EUR/USD had a bearish week as well. Play video >>

Dollar Versus Aussie and Kiwi October 31st // 28 Oct. 2011

The AUD/USD pair skyrocketed on Thursday, but found the Friday session a little slower. This makes sense as it certainly needs to rest after smashing through the 1.05 level. NZD/USD had a similar move, as it usually does. The 0.80 level gave way, and Friday saw a quiet session. Play video >>

Dollar Versus Aussie and Kiwi October 27th // 26 Oct. 2011

Dollar Versus Kiwi and Aussie October 21st // 20 Oct. 2011

NZD/USD produced the third doji in a row on Thursday, just below the 0.8000 level. With the EU's meetings over the weekend, the trading world is waiting to see the outcome of these important summits. However, the fact that the Kiwi can't retake the 0.8000 level could show the path of least resistance is down. AUD/USD is a similar chart, with the range being between 1.01 and 1.03 or so. The pair is a "risk on" trade from the long side, and with the recent headlines, it isn't hard to see why it has been "stuck". Both of these pairs look ready to move, but probably won't until Monday morning. Play video >>

Dollar Versus Aussie and Kiwi October 19th // 18 Oct. 2011

Dollar Versus Aussie and Kiwi October 17th // 14 Oct. 2011

AUD/USD rose like a rocket during the Friday session, clearly showing that it wants to run to the upside now. NZD/USD is a similar story, but has even broke the 0.8000 level. This area was big resistance, but only the start of it. Play video >>

Dollar Versus Euro and Kiwi October 13th // 12 Oct. 2011

EUR/USD rose rapidly again on Wednesday as traders continue to show belief in the possibility of a solution in the EU. NZD/USD rose as well, but faces similar problems: A round number which has shown itself to be massive, (0.80) and the 50% retrace that sits right above it. Play video >>

Kiwi Versus Dollar and Aussie September 5th // 03 Sept. 2011

NZD/USD formed a red candle and failed at the 0.85 level on Friday. The pair looks as if it has support at the 0.84 area however, and certainly does below until we get to the 0.80 area. The pair looks like it is trying to pullback, which is a chance to find value in the Kiwi in our opinion. Alternately, we could find ourselves holding at 0.84, and testing the 0.86 level - forming a 200 pip consolidation zone. AUD/NZD has formed a bit of a hammer, and the 1.25 area seems to be supportive. The breaking of the Thursday candle should be a great sign in order to go long. If we can break above the recent highs - we are going much higher. Play video >>

Dollar Versus Kiwi and Aussie September 1st // 31 Aug. 2011

NZD/USD rose again on Wednesday, but has formed a second shooting star in a row. This is a very bearish sign, but there is a ton of support just under this level. Because of this, we are not wanting to sell this pair, but rather wait for the pullback to go long. AUD/USD has formed a second doji, and appears that it is struggling with the 1.07 - 1.08 resistance area. Because of this, we may see a pullback. As long as we don't break below the 1.05 level, we fell this could be a buying opportunity. Play video >>

Kiwi Versus Dollar and Franc August 31st // 30 Aug. 2011

NZD/USD finally broke above the all-important 0.85 resistance level on Tuesday, and looks set to continue the bullish stance. The announcement of the Fed extending their meeting in September to two days has people speculating that the Fed will continue to ease. This should be bullish for commodities, and thus - bullish for the commodity currencies like the Kiwi. The NZD/CHF is rapidly pushing at the 0.70 level, and looks like it wants to have a go at it. However, with the massive run up in this market, we don't want to buy this pair. However, we bring it up as it shows just how the "risk on / risk off" trade is going. As long as the NZD/CHF rises - traders will continue to buy risk. Play video >>

Dollar Versus Aussie and Kiwi August 26th // 25 Aug. 2011

AUD/USD rose, and then fell on Thursday as traders simply cannot hold above the all-important 1.05 level. The Jackson Hole announcement later today will decide if there is any potential QE3 coming out of the USA, and if so - commodities will skyrocket. Under that scenario, the AUD/USD should have no problem rising above the 1.05 area. If not, this pair could continue to look weak, perhaps even retesting the 1.01 area for support. The NZD/USD pair is in a similar boat, being another commodity currency. The candle shape suggests that weakness could be ahead, but the wildcard is the speech. The hint of QE3 will more than likely make this currency pair a favorite for FX traders to the long side. If not - then we could drift lower, perhaps even testing 0.8000 as support. If that gives way - look out below! Play video >>

August 15th Long-Term Charts // 12 Aug. 2011

The EUR/USD could potentially be a flag. A bullish one at that! This videos shows how this is being formed, the levels that we need to watch, and the potential target, which sounds really high. But hey - I can remember when the EUR/USD being at 1.20 was out of the question! The USD/CHF pair looks very strong suddenly, and the weekly hammer shows we could continue to bounce. 0.80 is certainly a real possibility as the Swiss are starting to talk about pegging the Franc to the Euro. The SNB has a meeting this week, and it could move this pair wildly. The NZD/USD looks like it is ready to push even higher. The weekly hammer shows that the demand for the Kiwi is still out there, and that the 0.80 area is a massive support level that refuses to give way so far. Play video >>

Kiwi Versus Franc and Dollar August 8th // 05 Aug. 2011

The NZD/CHF pair has fallen quite a bit in the alst several days, and as the world is getting more and more risk-adverse, this pair will fall. The bounce on Friday makes sense, as no market goes in a straight line, but this could be a selling opportunity in the end. We are watching to see how price reacts at the 66 handle. The NZD/USD has fallen far in the last few days, and the 0.85 level has been broken. As we have bounced, we fell just short of this area. It is a crucial area for the bulls, and they simply must reclaim it. If not - we go much lower. Play video >>

Dollar Versus Kiwi and Pound August 1st // 29 July 2011

NZD/USD skyrocketed on Friday after falling earlier in the day. The pair is overbought, but we certainly do not want to stand in the way of this freight train which is the long term trend we see in this pair. The GBP/USD rose on Friday, but is presently running into trouble at the 1.65 level. As we look at it, this pair looks like a prime candidate for a choppy market, bouncing between the 1.65 and 1.63 levels. We think this pair will only offer short-term opportunities for the immediate future. Play video >>

Kiwi Versus Dollar and Franc July 19th // 19 July 2011

NZD/USD has fallen the last couple of days in a row, but each time - the buyers step into the market to keep pushing this pair much higher. Once we break 0.85 - we could move onto be things. NZD/CHF has been rangebound in the rectangle pattern area. Why? They are two of the strongest currencies on earth right now! Play video >>
