EURUSD Retrace rally then big drop

Well, apparently the consensus is for another year of dollar strength

Great piece on RealVision today with an economist called David Rosenberg, who has recently started up his own firm (aged 59).  One thing he states, which is a belief I hold, is that economists who wok for large firms cannot go out on a limb as this is a career threat so they hug the consensus.  In other words the consensus is self-fulfilling and therefore will also hug the trend and never spot the major turns.  For that you need something else...

EURUSD is breaking lower.  We could see a bit of a bearish move to punch through near term support.  If price gets past circa 11,050 then I would expect a test of 11,000.  I think 10,950 is the key test.  If price finds support here the bullish scenario could be on but a firm break and we can expect a test of the lower channel line around the 10,800 mark probably.

I see similar set ups on GBPUSD where there is a gap to be closed just below current price action in the short term.

Mahmoud is seeing the bear as well for EURUSD: 

Looking at the daily chart, we notice on Friday EUR/USD tumbled to a lower trading zone 1.1059 – 1.1108 then closed below the 50-Day average providing two bearish signals.


A close below the low end of the zone could lead more buyers to exit their trades. This paves the way for sellers to take charge and press EURUSD towards 1.0951. Yet, the weekly support levels and area marked on the chart (zoomed in) should be watched closely, as some traders could exit/join the market nearby these points.

On the other hand, any failure in closing below the low end of the zone may reverse the pair’s course. This could rally EURUSD towards the high end of the zone. Further close above 1.1118 might encourage buyers to repeat last week’s scenario and push towards 1.1175. That said, the weekly resistance level underscored on the chart would be worth monitoring.

@CharlotteIG I don't get all the numbered sections on the white space on that chart ... confused?

You're right, I've just change the content. I was using a clip from further down. It should be amended now.

EURUSD has validated the H&S pattern and dipped rather consistently, more pips to follow, but first a small retracement lurks for the first day of the week. 

EURUSD 27-31 January

Testing times for EUR/USD...we're at the 110 level again. If it breaks below 10920-35 will be the next stop

Agree @Level_Trader but I see circa 10,950 as a key support zone, which if broken should see a test of the 1 Oct 2019 low, which if tested I think it will not hold and then we are into lower low territory.  From a trading perspective I prefer GBPUSD as there are ore points on offer, potentially.

Relentless selling pressure on EUR/USD.  The 1st October low from last year is fast approaching...

Hey guys, 

I understand this is more of a TA stream but Jeremy Naylor produced a piece with DailyFX about having exposure to EURUSD with options: 

We have help and example of Options trade set up around possible EUR/USD volatility: 

You can see how to get exposure but with options.

I think you're draining the dregs from the bottom of the barrel if you short now, right?

RSI isn't oversold so is there room for more?

I quite agree.  Even taking a Short on the turn wasn't that compelling, offering only a few 100 points for a high error risk.  For me this is about tracking for a trend change turn.  Given the length of time and low volatility this trend has exhibited I would not be surprised to see it eek out further whipsaw and lateral movement before the turn occurs and if this coincides with a bear phase for GBPUSD, which is my current bias, then EURGBP may yet be the way to go shorter term for FX traders.  However overall I prefer the look of USDCAD for a long term bear market if and when Oil really gets going.

Doubt we will see a complete capitulation at this stage, possible of course but there is a lot of support to bust through.  My lead scenario is for a 3-4 retrace about now followed by a final wave 5 to a major turning point, this is in line with my USD DX analysis too.

EURUSD seems to have broken a key LT trend line and now perhaps put in a retest fail.  If this is confirmed with a new higher high then a strong rally phase is indicated (i.e. that USD bear I have been tracking is on!).  May still get a second retest of the trend line or break out zone but otherwise looking good.  I am not trading this pair as I have no faith in the Euro long term but other pairs look interesting, especially perhaps GBPUSD as USDJPY is dependent on a resumption of the Stocks bear.

    • 1) It would be really helpful to be able to change a stop loss from normal to guaranteed stop in the online trading platform. Currently we can only do that on the mobile app which is ridiculous because the online trading platform should be having more features than the mobile app. 2) Allow us to set limit (take profit) for partial position size. Example if I buy 5 contracts of AUD/USD at 0.7150. I would like the option to be able to set take profit for 3 contracts at 0.7170 and 2 contracts at 0.7190.   
    • Hi Folks, The platform advertises that you need to place three or more trades in the previous month to avail of the free trading on US stocks (no $15 commission) for the subsequent month. However, even with that commission fee gone you're going to have to pay IG for the currency conversion each time. You're going back and forth between buying and selling, GBP to USD to GBP ...this will equate to a lot of money. So, you've realised the above and to avoid this really ridiculous and expensive merry-go-round you turn on multi-currency feature, right? In your head you think:   "I want to exclusively trade US stocks, I've waited one month (you'd have rathered to just pay IG and not need to wait), made more than three trades on that currency merry-go-round, I am happy to pay the reasonable quarterly fee to IG from here on in and keep the account as USD while availing of their most advertised feature, the commission free trading on US stock market". The new month arrives and you can have a great time trading on the US stock market with your dollar that doesn't keep eating away at any trade profits with each buy and sell. However, the next month arrives and menacing commission fee is back! But you traded at least three times last month, what gives? Ah! But you used the multicurrency feature, and this means on the subsequent month you will not be eligible for commission free trading. You're back to square one. Your choice is to either pay IG the fee for every conversion in every trade or prevent this and keep the respective currency but also you must pay IG a commission.    Anyone else experience this? I'm hoping I'm completely wrong, but contacting the helpdesk seems to confirm this ...
    • IG need to provide a stock screener, live scanner for volume/price movement, pre-market data,  and rapid execution for private traders and rebate fees for trading view as they do for PRT, with traders who trade frequently. One can be ambitious and ask IG to provide a free platform like thinkorswim as Ameritrade does with current news stream  - again a free rebate for access to Benziga or similar with rebates linked to the amount of trades.  The money spent on IG TV perhaps can be spent somewhere else towards provision of some free resources to private traders/investors.  The IG tv is a serious issue - do IG really think that IG TV add any value?  Access to financial publications/sites might be a better thing.  The effort of IG to provide its own academy, advice etc is and always will probably a poor quality duplication.  Please learn/borrow from American brokers and now that their commission charges are Zero.  PRT - Can that be downloadable.  The web based form just slows everything down and very clunky and the charts are not elegant at all.  They have a community and they do develop or help develop some strategies. We do not want to lose them. But a live screener /scanner please.  I just realised that I do not even know if IF IT team even reads these comments or prioritise any of the suggestions. Please get rid of your IG TV investment, it is very annoying. And yes VWAP/anchored VWAP please on the charts. Give the private investors some of the rebates too. Is Charlotte, finally providing our redemption by talking these to the right eyes and ears! Overall, IG really is not that bad given others at least for UK investors. Perhaps just a less spread and less of that dreaded, sudden declaration that this stock is only for close and you can not open new position. I think that and the liquidity  excuse is lame unless IG is beholden to a particular market maker or IG somehow gets it in a very large position by itself.
