Looking for support again today, may find it at 1.2194 (again), otherwise it is back to 1.2092.

Continuing it's climb upward after prolonged sideways period, currently respecting the 100 MA on the 5 min but so far unable to clear prior high at  1.2335. Good correlation analysis , new week new scenario.

eurusd happily ranging while awaiting a Draghi sensation but the chart is setting good levels to bear in mind. The problem with pressers is that price can reverse on each sentence and this one usually goes on for 3/4 of an hour. Usually worth holding off til some kind of consensus is reached.

Monthly chart sees trendline resistance dead ahead. Strong January overcame the 5 month resistance (and prior support) level 1.2092, will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Slightly off topic but... I never get the logic of MA's or EMA's (admitidly I've never really looked into it much). But why pick arbitry 'x' numbers of days.

 

Why 7 or 21 for example, when the candles will only print on actual market open trading days, so why not 5 or 15 for the '1 week and 3 weeks worth'? Why three weeks anyway, and now 4?

 

Why 100 and 200 days, rather than 252 which is the number of trading days in a year (generally)?

Hi ,  good question.  MA's are the basis of nearly all indicators you will see on any drop down list, sure they may have been through some convoluted math but the origin of most is the humble MA.

 

MA's are obviously a lagging indicator as most are but they do provide historic and up to the tick information on trend direction, and on momentum by the increasing or decreasing degree of angle of slope. They are often also used as dynamic support lines.

 

Which one to choose is the key question, the answer is to experiment to find a best fit for whatever time frame you are looking at and which market you are trading. As with any indicator you are trying to figure what the market movers are using (and they will be using them) so zoom out and see which ones are being used for support in a trend. Common favourites are 20, 50, 100, 200. SMA's tend to be used by the older traders on established markets such as stocks, EMA's tend to be used by younger traders on newer markets such as FX and crypto. 

 

This is not an exhaustive appraisal of MA's but just thoughts off the top of my head based on my own experience. No indicator will determine the future but if enough large players are using one they will become a sort of 'self fulfilling prophesy'. 

 

So again, the key is to zoom out and see if one is relevant, if not move on and look for some thing else.

Eurodollar has moved down through trendline support, yesterday's low, and the 200 MA. Next level down is 1.2300.

Did break down through 1.2300, now looking at prior low support level 1.2275, a successful break down here would target the weekly support level 1.2200.

eurusd sitting at a pivotal point, a break either way could signal a larger move. A eurusd long is IG's 'trade of the week' but ran into trouble yesterday on new Fed chair Powell's testimony.

EURUSD trading idea;
*Watch for trend continuation for sell entry,

*Possible H&S pattern,

*Watch the bottom around 1.2160 area for long opportunity,

 

Trade with care,

Best Regards,

A reversal pattern here would be in keeping with the monthly chart where price has run into trendline resistance. Will probably depend on how the US Dollar scenario plays out which is currently sitting just 100 points below major resistance having looked to have bottomed out over the last 7 weeks.

Interesting break down out of range on the 1 hour chart yesterday, currently retesting the range bottom and trying to decided which why to go. FOMC decision this evening with high prediction of a rate rise so we may see euro test lower in anticipation.

Will be hoping for support here at prior resistance level and 200 ma, if not the next level down is 1.1927.

    • London's house prices - EMEA brief 21 Aug
      Asian stocks generally up on hopes trade tensions may ease, with opes of a China - US trade resolution pushing up copper, often seen as a barometer for the economic outlook, dragging behind it miners such as BHP Billiton and Glencore. Venezuela have debased their currency taking off five zeros, along with increase minimum wage by 3000% in and effort to prop up their economy. Yesterday the world trade organisation confirmed that Turkey had lodged a trade dispute against the US. Gold gains as Trump's remarks weigh on the US dollar, whilst oil edges up on tighter US outlook and Iran sanctions. Finally, see what's going on with London house prices in the IGTV video featured video below.

    • Oil prices slip - EMEA brief 20 Aug
      Iran has stressed to OPEC over the weekend that no other member country should take up the slack for reduced oil exports in the face of Trump imposed US sanctions. Oil prices slip on concerns over slowing economic growth. Asia shares inch up with yuan ahead of Sino - US talks, whilst UK ministers are set to release their first ‘no deal’ Brexit documents on Thursday in an effort to prepare for a “worst possible” outcome. Persimmon results are expected tomorrow, with many in the sector looking to the release as a barometer for the wider housing sector and how a rising inflation rate will affect the market.

    • Over Exposed Traders, Global Taper Tantrum, Jackson Hole - DFX key themes
      There are a few undisputable and universal forces when it comes to the financial markets. One of those all-powerful winds is the concept of risk trends which is referred to by many names such as ‘risk on, risk off’ or referenced unknowingly when we blindly attribute market wide movement to animal spirits through technical cues, smart versus dumb money, panic to greed.

      Another of these truisms is the allocation of capital. While total wealth does grow and contract, it is apportioned to some market whether that is emerging market equities to US Treasuries to home mattresses. In a global market, there is also distribution to different regions according to what country or collective economy presents the best opportunities.

      And, from this parsing of investment preference; we can learn a lot about the market; but one of the most elemental solutions is the global market’s general bearing for sentiment (the risk trends referenced before). There are no easy, definitive measures for allocations across such a wide universe of markets, but there are various measures for specific areas and key ports for which to apply measure such that we come to a good understanding of the markets’ health.
