NZD/CAD Trade Idea


Guest ChrisW

Recommended Posts

There's been interest in shorting NZD/CAD, especially in the wake of last night’s poor Kiwi dairy auction. I would be looking at short positions, placing a stop above yesterday’s high of c$0.89 and adding on a break of the September uptrend.

 

This is quite aggressive and while we have seen a bearish reversal (circled), we still need to see a lower low to confirm the reversal. The momentum oscillators are rolling over, but not giving any huge sell signal so I would keep position sizing small.

 

 From a relative valuation perspective, spot NZD/CAD has diverged significantly from the NZ/CAD 2-year bond spread. As the yield spread premium the NZ 2-yr treasury commands over the Canadian 2-yr declines the pair should follow, but this has not been the case. I suspect we are going to see catch up from spot FX and NZD/CAD should come back in-line as mean reversion kicks in.

 

 On the CAD side my personal belief is an extra c$10b in fiscal spend announced by the new Canadian Liberal government is not going to dramatically alter the BoC’s thinking too greatly! Keep in mind the BoC meet tonight.

Wondering how this trade is going?  I looked at the chart but can't correlate what I see to the one Chris posted (timescale)?

 

It seemed (for the NZDCAD) there was a bit of action - rose a bit then down sharply as suggested, bit of a dance down at those levels and then?

 

Is there an exit point, or ride it out for a few days, or till a Fib level/support?? 

 

Nice trade regardless.

Thanks

 

I had a look today and can see that surge now.  Thanks to Mario...

I think there might have been a few good points in it anyway pre-ECB.

 

I haven't traded FX for 10years - but the memories of similar moves at midnight (for me) are still pretty clear.  I keep meaning to consider binaries and FX, but am busy enough at the moment.

    • The #meme hype surrounding #Solana may have slowed down with the emergence of the Ton network, but it seems that the enthusiasm for Solana is not fading away entirely. While new networks like Ton are gaining attention, Solana has previously generated significant interest and wealth for investors. However, there are concerns about scammers exploiting the Solana network with various honeypot and rugpull schemes, leading some traders to explore other chains like Base and Ton. Despite the rise of Ton blockchain, a new Solana meme project associated with Pepe the Frog has started to gain traction. One such project, LandWolf, has already amassed over 5,000 active Telegram members and 5,000 Twitter followers, indicating early interest and community engagement. The project aims to unite Pepe fans with the broader crypto community, offering a unique value proposition. LandWolf's ability to secure listings on top-tier exchanges like Bitget showcases the developer's influence and the project's potential. Some enthusiasts have already dubbed $WOLF as the biggest meme coin on Solana, highlighting the ongoing interest and excitement within the Solana ecosystem.
    • Meme coins are cryptocurrencies inspired by internet jokes, like Dogecoin. They're inherently risky due to their extreme price swings. While some meme coins remain purely for fun, others are trying to develop actual uses in gaming or finance. These high-risk, high-reward investments often attract "degenerates" (or "degens") who chase quick profits by jumping into unproven projects without much research.   The potential for massive returns with meme coins can't be ignored, however. Dogecoin's 9800% surge in 2021 exemplifies this. A $100 investment could have turned into a life-changing $9800. This experience highlights the potential regret of focusing solely on "safe" investments with lower potential returns.   Taking inspiration from this, some experienced investors are now allocating a small portion of their portfolio to latest meme coins.one of the latest is Miggles listed on Bitget. This strategy allows them to potentially benefit from future bull runs while limiting their overall risk.
