EURUSD

Recommended Posts

"It seems that the ECB wants to talk the EUR exchange rates down. This exchange rate control is politically dangerous and economically damaging - and a heavy burden for the euro." (U. Leuchtman, Commerzbank FX Research, on LinkedIn)

(Leuchtman's  interpretation of Lane's statement "The EUR-USD rate does matter [and] is endogenous to monetary policy") 

EURUSD had  a good run for six weeks or so, probably given shrinking interest rate differential, maybe also reduced EUR re-denomination risk since common Eurozone debt issuance deal, and likely also due to relatively larger Fed asset purchase and lending programs

 

currently (only) considering small short EURUSD

I disagree with people who base their decisions on 'fundamentals' and 'news'.

Look at the chart.  Is it in a downtrend?   Sell the rally.  Is it in an uptrend?  Buy the dip.

Don't listen to any of these c&nts who get paid by the word.  And remember, by the time 'news' filters its way down to you, all the 'smart money' has already 'been there and done that'.

I see you're point, I think you're probably right.  I do however still believe that news is not necessarily immediately priced in - I'll not be the first to get it, yes.

something must cause trends to end, in particular given the trend usually gets supported by dip-buying or rally-selling. 

Now of course there is likely a very low probability that I'll be able to spot that, and maybe it's wiser to never try - will think about that once more.... (so for now the emphasis above stays on the "(only) considering")...

Close to entering the range of the prior major swing low point

Will the market find support at this double bottom?

Indicators on the higher time frame WEEKLY chart and the daily chart are BOTH <25% and technically "oversold"

All I know is the market is in a zone for a possible long reversal, watching for a set-up - It might happen, it might not, no-one knows for certain here, we could be going lower, we could be reversing to form a triple top, then it could reverse to form a triple bottom range zone etc - Trade what you see not think though, never guess (that does not mean you'll always be 100% correct though! - as sometimes we are simply right but early)

No-One needs telling that a double bottom reversal here with a target of the prior swing high represents a huge R profit if it comes off

Often these swing highs and lows are magnets for future swings

    • Look Ahead to 07/02/23: RBA; GB Retail Sales; BP, BNPP earnings Australia’s central bank is likely to deliver a fourth consecutive quarter-point interest rate hike, after further tightening by the Fed, the ECB and the BoE. Brace for UK retail, earnings from BP (BP) and BNP Paribas (BNPP). Also, look out for US trade balance figures and Halifax house price data ahead of key UK growth data out later in the week.    Angeline Ong | Presenter, Analyst and Content Editor, London | Publication date: Monday 06 February 2023        
    • Hi, I am practicing certain strategies in demo account. I have created few screeners but when i tried to buy or short sell different stocks shortlisted based on screener conditions, i am getting different kinds of errors. Some stocks you can buy but can't short-sell and so on. I searched in the forums and i understand different restrictions such as market cap should be so and so. Are these rules defined somewhere?  for e.g. one forum reply says market cap should be above 10 billion otherwise you will get second message in below list. However even i try to short sell a stock that has £30 billion market cap, i get the same error.  1. IG is not accepting opening trades on this market, you may only place an order to close. 2. Market you have requested is not longer available online Any suggestions on the above will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
    • Charting the Markets - February 6, 2023 FTSE 100, DAX and S&P 500 tiptoe lower following strong US jobs report. EUR/USD and GBP/USD are topping out while EUR/GBP rallies. And gold, Brent crude, and natural gas head lower, as payrolls strengthen the dollar.                         This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
