EUR/USD: consolidation unfolding
Eurodollar has stopped rallying and is in a consolidation phase. Currently it is falling within its range and it will probably fall further to the range lows at about 1.3145. There is a possibility the consolidation will continue unfolding and then break higher, with 1.3500 providing the next upside target for the pair, alternatively deeper declines could see it fall to support at 1.3119.…Continue

With Friday’s down market, the reality has sunk it that it may very well be left to Santa to find a few trillion in spending cuts. Volume was high with triple witching expiration, but the markets headed south after Boehner’s failed plan B Thursday night and then Congress’ departure for the holiday.
They will return on December 27th but this means that they have four days after the Christmas…Continue

Advanced Technical Indicators - Bollinger Bands
Let's take another look at a more advanced technical tool - Bollinger Bands. These were developed by John Bollinger in the 1980s. In simple terms, they use a simple moving average and standard deviations to give a different perspective on potential highs and lows.

As you may be already aware FX trading is all about money management. If you don't trade without a goal in mind, then you're guessing the market. While guessing can sometimes be productive, it will not last longer. Per our records so far this week we have beyond surpassed our weekly goal. There's currently a USD/CHF trade alert which is positive around 40 pips. On the other hand, we have gone 5 for 5 on trade alerts this week on 5 different pairs EUR/USD,…Continue

EUR/USD: continuation higher
The trend up continues, strengthened by the break of the 1.3168 highs. Price is now also starting to breach the upper channel line of the current rally - a sign of surprising strength. It is also breaking above the weekly and monthly pivots clustered at 1.3258. If these fail then the next upside target might be 1.3485; any weakness, however, would be likely to return to the 1.3230-40 consolidation zone.…Continue

EUR/USD: Technical Analysis
Eurodollar continues to consolidate in a pennant or triangle formation. It will probably eventually break higher, with a decisive move above the 1.3187 highs acting as confirmation, or possibly even 1.3195 for added safety. Then it should reach 1.3255 where the monthly and weekly pivots coincide. Obstacles below the pattern may impede downside, first at 1.3119 and then the consolidation zone between 1.3080 and 1.3110.…Continue

After the markets had closed last Friday, reports surfaced that House Speaker John Boehner went to the White House for a special meeting with president Obama. Would a “fiscal cliff” deal be reached as Congress left for its Christmas break?
Over the weekend Congressional aides told reporters of the weekend meetings and what was said. Mr. Boehner once again inched closer to what…

What is day trading?
Day trading is probably one of the most misunderstood labels in the industry. Some people might picture a random trader acting like a cowboy just buying and selling with pure abandon. Others might imagine a seasoned vet pouring over charts and analysis, looking for a chance to try to scoop up a few points here or there. Let’s set the record straight on what day trading does…

EUR/USD: Technical Analysis
Eurodollar has been going sideways today with no firm trend in either direction. There may be a double top price pattern visible on the hourly chart, with a neckline at 1.3055 and a downside target at 1.3015. The short-term trend is still up, however, and favours more upside but any bullish potential is capped by resistance form the monthly pivot at 1.3120.…Continue

EUR/USD: Technical Analysis
The triangle on eurodollar on Monday ended up breaking out higher and fulfilling its 1.2975 target. It will now probably correct back in a final wave lower, perhaps to the 50-day MA at 1.2925, or maybe even to support at 1.2905. After that it is possible the up-trend will resume and target 1.3000 first and then probably between 1.3060-80 where an old trend-line may resist further gains.…Continue

Worm in the Apple
The financial wheel of misfortune landed on the Apple stock space Friday, even though the broad market ended up okay. Has the once sacred AAPL suddenly become the forbidden fruit?
After flirting with a closely watched area on the charts that analysts refer to as the "death cross," APPL has fallen from the tree as the stock's 50 day moving average is now below its 200 day moving average, and is off more than 23…Continue
