August 20th Long-Term Forex Charts // 18 Aug. 2012

EUR/USD had a fairly positive week over the last five sessions, but did in fact pullback a bit to forma candle that could be interpreted as a shooting star of sorts. NZD/USD looks promising as the pullback has sat it right on top of significant support. The commodity markets should continue to get a bid as the central bank around the world look set to add to quantitative easing policies. The AUD/USD isn't as bullish as the NZD/USD pair, but it has to be mentioned that we are currently sitting on top of the bottom line in an up trending channel. 1.04 looks very supportive at this point. The USD/JPY pair had a fabulous week, closing at the very highs. Unfortunately, the 80 handle is far too close to go long at this point, but buying the pullbacks could be a strategy going forward.

Dollar Versus Aussie and Euro August 17th // 16 Aug. 2012

AUD/USD rose again during the session on Thursday in order to close back above the 1.05 level. This is a very bullish sign, and we think this has some way to go. With central banks willing to print more money, the gold and other commodity markets should continue higher - just like the Aussie. The EUR/USD got a boost on Friday due to talk of a Spanish bank bailout. The pair managed to challenge, but not break above the shooting star from the Tuesday session. We are still in the rising wedge, so we simply are waiting patiently for our next shorting opportunity. Play video >>

Dollar Versus Yen and Pound August 17th // 16 Aug. 2012

USD/JPY had another good session on Thursday in order to clear above the 79 handle. The market looks like it is now running towards the 80 handle, and then at that point we are going to have to rethink the situation. The 80 level will be crucial. The GBP/USD pair finally managed to close above the 1.57 level after trying for several sessions in a row. This shows that the pressure to the upside continues to build, and we think this market goes higher eventually. However, we need to clear 1.58 first. Play video >>

Dollar Versus Ruble and Yen August 16th // 15 Aug. 2012

USD/RUB isn't a pair we talk about much here, but we are running into serious resistance and feel that a move lower could be coming. Also, if you have the ability to short this pair, the swap is one of the highest out there. This can lead to extraordinary gains over time. The USD/JPY pair looks like it is trying to break out. We like the fact that the 78.75 level has given way, and that the Bank of Japan is sitting underneath. It looks as if the 80 handle is calling.... Play video >>

Euro Versus Dollar and Yen August 16th // 15 Aug. 2012

EUR/USD had a negative session on Wednesday, but did manage to bounce towards the end of the day in order to show signs of support at the 1.2250 level. The pair seems to be obeying the uptrend line from the rising wedge that we've been talking about, and as such it does look like we aren't quite ready to fall seriously yet. However, a break below the 1.2250 level and the uptrend line has us selling this pair hand over fist. EUR/JPY looks very similar on Wednesday, and as such we think that the two pairs will as per usual move in tandem. As a result, the analysis is almost the same. The fact that this pair formed a hammer on the 97 handle is worth noting, but we still think the 100 handle above should offer far too much resistance in the long run. Play video >>

Dollar Versus Loonie and Yen August 15th // 15 Aug. 2012

USD/CAD had a fairly quiet session on Tuesday, sitting just above the 0.99 level. The pair looks as if it is finding support here, and this would make sense as the oil markets are behaving in much the same manner. The pair will be highly dependent on the Light Sweet Crude markets, but we feel that a move down to 0.97 will happen before too long. The USD/JPY pair advanced during the Tuesday session to finally break above the 78.75 level, an area that interested us in buying this market. This pair looks set to grind higher - possibly to the 80 handle before running into serious resistance. Play video >>

Euro Versus Dollar and Pound August 15th // 15 Aug. 2012

EUR/USD saw another attempt at a rally during the Tuesday session, only to fall again. The candle for the session in s a shooting star, and looks very vulnerable at this point in time. On a break of wither the bottom of the candle, or even the uptrend line in the rising wedge - we are selling. The EUR/GBP looks similar, but with a slight twist: We have broken down already, and on Tuesday confirmed a former support line as resistance. We are selling this pair on a move lower from the Tuesday lows. Play video >>

Yen Versus Dollar and Euro August 14th // 13 Aug. 2012

USD/JPY had a slightly positive session on Monday, in what was a fairly quiet trading day. The pair seems to be finding a lot of support at 78, and we think the Bank of Japan could be behind this. The pair is either finding support - or forming a bearish flag that could run the market down to 76, which was the all-time lows last year. The EUR/JPY pair attempted to rally, but found itself wanting by the end of the day as half of the gains were given back. The pair looks like it is forming a bearish flag....which is part of why we think the USD/JPY could fall as well. This pair is likely to see 90 in the next few months. Play video >>

Euro Versus Dollar and Pound August 14th // 13 Aug. 2012

EUR/USD pair rose during the session on Monday, but gave back much of the gains at the end of the day as the 1.2350 level continues to act as support and resistance every time we get near it. The pair is also forming a rising wedge, and as such we are very bearish of it and looking to sell rallies at this point. The EUR/GBP pair bounced higher enough to retest a former uptrend line on Monday, and failed. This is indeed a good sign for shorting this pair again. We are only sellers of this market as the trend is so strong, and the Pound as well. Play video >>

Dollar Versus Loonie and Yen August 13th // 10 Aug. 2012

USD/CAD fell hard again on Friday as the down trend is accelerating. The pair has broken below the previous downtrend channel, and now looks set to challenge the 0.98 to 0.97 support area. The pair is also known to be in a larger consolidation area that has support at that region. The USD/JPY pair is continually finding support in the region of 78. This is the same area that the Bank of Japan has been known to get active in. Are they clandestinely intervening again? Play video >>
