EURUSD - Trendlines have been broken

Recommended Posts

The EURUSD chart looks ominous to me.

The trend lines on the chart have given way and downside below 1.06 looks very likely to me.

If that gives way then par could well be next.

I'd like to think there will be a chance to short at 1.10 but if not in the next couple of days I will go short where I can.

 

Any thoughts guys?

Hi JB - nice trading.  Yet are you saying you'd short some more above 1.08 and close it out at 1.0650 or wait till that level has been breached then short some more?

Hey Zero,

 

Nothing ever moves in a straight line.

We always tend to see a consolidation.

Having moved a fair way down I wasn't suprised to see the Eur test 1.08 again.

As expected it failed and I have the next support at 1.0650.

It has barely closed below that this morning. But as I mentioned previously a close below 1.0650 is a signal for me to add to the short again. This level has proved formidable thus far but when taken out I think we will see another significant move toward parity.

 

Cheers,

 

JB.

Hey jbtrader,

 

Stubborn level 1.0650 - there now or close to it (3:30pm GMT+10, end of day SPI).

I haven't traded currencies for years, so don't have a feel for them at the moment.  I was wondering why you would prefer to wait rather than short on the pullback and then have some points up your sleeve as it attacks 1.0650.  If I was trading and waiting for 1.0650 to be breached, I feel I'd be behind the move if I was trying to jump in, whereas getting in up at your pullback level, I'd get that surge lower without trying?  And, if incorrect, close out flat back up near entry?

 

For an intra-day trader (ie. me) these moves seem like forever :) 

 

Your analysis has been spot on for this move.   Good stuff.

Hey Zero,

 

Having already had this position for some time now I am just looking at the most important trendlines.

Waiting for 1.0650 to be breached is important to me as I don't see much if any support below here that is meaningful. Par awaits.

This makes me believe that the 1.0650 level holds more impotance than most support levels.

I'm surprised there was no follow through last night.

I don't want to bring my average down until I am more certain there will be the follow through.

 

I am confident that this level will be breached but until it is I am somewhat cautious.

 

Been in the Eur and Gold trades for quite a while now - must seem like an eternity for you :-)

Yes, patience! grasshopper. 

 

I am still waiting...:)  I must trade in dog years or something. 

 

But I do appreciate the ability to be able to trade like you do.  It is not easy so good work.  I was actually thinking of broadening my time-frames so may join you in the slow-mo trades.  I feel silly getting asked all the time about the SPI (or a market) and saying - nichts, doesn't matter, I just trade intra-day structure.  I get some weird looks, or like, how does that help me ?

Anyway - back to the waiting game.

 

These days - just an after-thought - interest rates are so low or negative, that the carry doesn't help.  I remember the good old days (10years ago) when people were heding baskets of FX just to milk the interest.  Not anymore.  Except maybe the $AUD.  Yay for the Aussie.

I know I don't have to tell you this, but make sure you take some pocket money from this trade - while technically everything is looking fine, there are a few market moving events this week that might muck things up.  Short covering?  I'd hate to see such a good trade go to waste!  Cheers.

Um, well.  That's sort of what I meant...  Yikes. 

300 points and no comment from the community - I think it deserves an honourable mention as a decent move?

? Anyone long the Euro pre-Draghi give us a nod.

The next week will be more telling perhaps.

Hey Zero,

 

Sorry but I was flat out last week.

I got stopped out at breakeven on this trade after all that good work. It feels like a loss though.

***** ECB but hey - thats trading.

I thought the trade was insulated from market noise but that sure was a surprise.

 

Cheers,

 

JB.

I think the majority of Hedgies got burnt too, and the rest.  Seems like there is a bit of internal tension within the ECB.  You'd expect Draghi to have given the priviledged Prop. Banks a clear indication what he was intending, as they were all expecting more (deeper cut) - but maybe there was a loud "nein!" in the votes.

 

While it feels like a loss, you're doing well to break-even after that size move.  Live to fight another day.

    • The integration of AI into metaverse can be seen as a transformative shift. While companies leverage on AI to streamline creation process and enhance user experience, the integration of AI within the metaverse facilitates smooth interactions, providing users with instant information. In ROGin AI is a platform that combines the strengths of both technologies to offer wide financial services, ranging from cryptocurrency investment to NFT trading; an earning service that gives users access to simplified asset management, and a social trading platform that enhances users investment choices.  Its ecosystem boasts of vast features that have been integrated to enhance user experience, including features like Web3 wallet, reward system, governance etc. ROGin AI tokenomics, another core part of its ecosystem drives it growth, having burned 1.8bn out of 2bn tokens initial issuance, shrinking the total number of tokens issued to 200m. With ROG now about to list on Bitget on 19th June 2024, a high demand and potential surge could be in the offing.
    • Frankly, it's a relief to know that Nvidia is more valuable than the entire German stock exchange. Yes, there is room for it to grow and it's banking on automation to help it do so, but is it really worth all of German equities? Probably not. It's a company that manufactures chips, like Intel or AMD or Huawei or Qualcomm. It's a 2024 version of Cisco systems. The price is, like most on the Nasdaq, speculative. It's trading at a p/e of 62. Sixty two.  AI has been a real boon to the NASDAQ, though actually in real world use cases it's been a bit less than impressive. From personal experience anyway. More hype than substance. Chat GPT being especially disappointing and is getting dumber the longer it is being gatekept and limited. However, having lived through the original dot com bubble, nothing should surprise where imaginative valuations are concerned. This time appears similar. A seeming relentless unstoppable race into price discovery. World use cases that seem to negate the need for people to do any work (so who's going to pay for whatever services are being offered?)       Sure AI has and indeed will be integral to our future. But we could be hyper-focusing ourselves into a compromising dilemma on the use case for actual humans, for example. Is Apple worth the 2 trillion bucks the stock price says it is, now it is using ChatGPT AI in it's new devices? Again I return to my use case examples with Chat GPT where it regularly tells me it can't help. Ok, I can have existential debates with Claude from Anthropic about the evolution of AI. But can it help with strategy trading Gold, for example? There it becomes resolutely mute. Can it or will it create software (EA's) for MT4/5 platforms based on predetermined strategy or confluence of strategies? Or integrate strategy for the purpose of gaming out possibilities? That would be a Nope.  Negatory. No can do. Long way to go then. Long way. The prices however, would indicate all of this and virtual paradise are just around the next corner. Unless, aggressive war/defence AI decides in a pique of frustration that human beings are beastly and not worthy of being it's master and the best thing for all concerned is to send them back to the stone age. There are doubtless many religious enthusiastic fantasists who would welcome such eventualities, but they are in the minority of Tiny.  In brief, the Nasdaq looks set to break the $20k barrier and will likely continue headlong into the next market capitulation, whenever that will be. There is intermarket bearish divergence with the Dow and Nasdaq, though the S&P500 is close to new ATH's like the QQQ. There has been no correction since 2022 of any real note.  If you have been riding the Nvidia wave then well done, just remember to book profits. The Fed is still giving decent, once in a generation returns on risk averse investment as insurance.
