EUR/USD, EUR/CHF and euro rally at a juncture


Recommended Posts

EUR/USD upswing is intact for now but there are challenges ahead; EUR/CHF has seen a pullback but remains on firm footing for the moment and short-term momentum favours the euro.

EUR/USD technical outlook

After making a 2-year low at 1.08062 two weeks ago, EUR/USD has managed to gain some short-term bullish momentum as it crossed above the 10-day simple moving average (SMA) and it’s gradient is positive.

Further bullish momentum may unfold if the price is to cross above the 21-day SMA, but it would take a sustained rally above it to turn the gradient to a positive slope.

Nearby resistance might be at the recent peaks of 1.11212 and 1.11375. Further up, resistance could be at the previous highs and pivot points of 1.12743, 1.12802, 1.13751, 1.13959, 1.14830 and 1.14949.

The slight weakness of the last few sessions has the price nearing an ascending trend line, currently intersecting at 1.0995, a level of potential support.

Below there, the previous lows of 1.0891 and 1.08062 are potential levels of support.

EUR/CHF technical outlook

Similar to EUR/USD, EUR/CHF made a 7-year low 2-weeks ago at 0.99728.

It has not traded at these levels since the Swiss National Bank (SNB) abandoned protecting the so-called “Swissy” from what it perceived to be overvaluation.

Yesterday’s price action saw EUR/CHF sneak below support at 1.02790 and touch the 10 and 21-day simple moving average (SMA) before bouncing back above 1.02790.

The next few sessions might be significant for the cross, as a continuation higher is a rejection of that attempt to go lower. While a decisive move below the 21-day SMA may signal short-term bullish momentum has evaporated.

To the downside, immediate support could be at yesterday’s low of 1.02646 which is also the current level of the 21-day SMA. Further down support may lie at the prior lows of 1.01550 and 0.99728.

On the upside, the 55 and 100-day SMAs are straddling the recent peak of 1.04024 and might provide a zone of resistance, as well as the prior high of 1.04480.

A pivot point at 1.05117 also has a descending trend line dissecting near it and could offer resistance. Above there the 200-day SMA is also near the February high of 1.06091, offering potential resistance.

    • Does anybody know the BIL (SPDR Bloomberg 1-3 Month T-Bill ETF) equivalent with a GBP currency hedge? I want the interest yield but I don't want the currency risk.
    • Capital, win loss ratio. If you have a trading edge and you can consistently win 50% of your trades, so your winning 5 trades out of 10. So if your risking 1% of your capital per trade, out of your 10 trades 5 would be losers, so that’s 5% loss and realistically out of the 5 winning trades, some would make small profits, some break even and 1, 2 or 3 could run nicely IF you can let your profits run, basically your making money out of 2 trades out of the 10 trades (80/20 Rule Pareto principle) So a $20,000 acct risking 1% is $200 per trade, this will keep the trader with his trade risk based on being able to win 50% of his trades. A long term trend trader can win with 30% wining trade. Basically you need to know your numbers. Rgds Pete
    • Investing in stocks can be a great way to grow your wealth over time. However, there are different approaches that investors can take when choosing which stocks to buy. Two of the most popular approaches are growth investing and value investing. Growth Investing Growth investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are expected to grow at a faster rate than the overall market. These companies are often in industries that are growing quickly, such as technology or healthcare. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies will be able to generate higher profits in the future, which will lead to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of growth investing is that it can potentially provide higher returns than the overall market. However, it is also riskier than other investment strategies, as these companies often have higher valuations and more volatile stock prices. Value Investing Value investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are undervalued by the market. These companies may be in industries that are out of favour or have recently experienced challenges, but they have strong fundamentals and a history of profitability. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies are undervalued and that their true value will be recognized in the future, leading to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of value investing is that it can potentially provide lower risk than growth investing. However, it may also provide lower returns in the long run, as these companies may not have the same growth potential as companies in the growth investing category. Comparing Growth and Value Investing Growth and value investing are two different approaches to stock investing, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Growth investing can potentially provide higher returns but is riskier, while value investing can provide lower risk but potentially lower returns. An investor may choose one approach or a combination of both. A portfolio that contains a mix of growth and value stocks can provide a balance of potential returns and risk. Conclusion Both growth investing and value investing can be effective ways to invest in stocks. The key is to understand the potential risks and rewards of each approach and to choose the one that aligns with your investment goals and risk tolerance. Analyst Peter Mathers TradingLounge™
