EUR/USD under pressure and USD/JPY recovers, while GBP/USD holds steady

Recommended Posts

A strengthened dollar has lifted USD/JPY again, while putting pressure on EUR/USD. For now, sterling appears to be holding its ground against the dollar.


EUR/USD in retreat from recent highs

Two days of losses in EUR/USD and a retreat from the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) $1.1169 point towards a potential lower high and the beginning of a new leg lower for the pair. This would bring $1.08 into view, the low from the beginning of March into play. Stochastics have rolled over too, suggesting this downtrend has further to run.

GBP/USD steady despite losses

GBP/USD price has managed to hold its ground despite coming under some pressure on Friday. As yet further losses have not materialised, although a drop below $1.305 would mark a bearish development. Buyers will want to see a move back above $1.318 to open the way to a potential challenge of the highs from the second half of March, around $1.328.

USD/JPY pushes higher

Friday’s jobs report strengthened the dollar, reversing some of the recent losses. It looks like USD/JPY may push back to the late March highs, despite the apparent overextension of the rally indicated by the yawning gap with the 50-day SMA ¥117.10. Sellers would need to push the price back below ¥121.20 to suggest a nearterm retracement is underway.

    • 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
