EURUSD 1 Hour

Recommended Posts

That is an interesting power bar (10am) through resistance (11160). Clearly a concerted effort but lacking follow through so far. Will it stick or prove false? Keep an eye on the DX chart as it approaches long term support at 9500/30 and the US JOLTS jobs data at 3pm. Though it is delayed it covers non-farm job openings and considered by some as something of a leading indicator.

I see this as the long awaited (for me at least) retrace to the daily tramline for a retest at about 11,300.  This would complete the A-B-C form retrace and there is a zone of strong resistance made up of a junction of the daily tramline (green) and weekly down-sloping tramline (purple).  If I see a 1-5 form for the current rally into this resistance zone I will be seeking a reversal and Short to begin a long decline.

 

There is something similar on GBPUSD, albeit very slow in getting going, and a corresponding potential turning point on EURGBP.  DX is the reverse.

Big 8am session opening bear bar off a double top at 11190 pulling price back through the 11160 level mentioned yesterday. RSI back below 50. On a smaller time frame I would like to see a retest and rejection of 11160 then look to enter short for a possible retest of 11100.

Nice clean run for EURUSD this morning now stalling at 11300, US CPI data release at 1:30 pm then US Indy Production figures at 2:15 pm. FOMC meeting minutes released tomorrow.

 

When will BoJ step in to choke Yen rise? May wait for data releases and watch the reaction.

    • Everyone, it seems accepts the result of the recent  US elections, except the President and half of the GOP.  Convinced of his own meritless delusions of fraud and other voting chicanery, he now pursues a policy of obfuscation, denial of service and general spite while mad dog Giuliani and even madder Sidney Powell pursue laughable cases in various courts in the vainglorious expectation that 6 million perfectly legal votes will somehow be annulled/ cancelled and cease to  exist. This is not to be, though the only realists in the GOP are keeping their own counsel on the subject, thereby enabling the Presidents' persistent delusions. That's the problem when you believe your own propaganda, it is easy to become confused with reality. Apart from hiding rotten fish behind the radiators of the White house and carving his name on the Resolute desk, soon to be ex president Trump is doing his best to make the transition for "sleepy" Joe as difficult as he can. This includes a tacit refusal to provide more stimulus.  He has instructed Steve Munchkin to end funding for various emergency programs to the tune of $438 billion., thereby hampering the incoming Treasury secretary before he/she even walks through the door. This has rightly upset Jerome Powell who has the interest of the US economy as his overarching priority. Unfortunately, the President is unmoved by the needs of the American public as he feels they have betrayed him.  Why reward treachery? Trump is known for his heartless ardour when crushing those he deems as unworthy, which in this case is the American people as a whole, overcome as he is with nihilistic zeal.  Playing golf while ignoring a health crisis , at the same time as full denial in the face of outright defeat, does not an effective president make. Indeed, might I venture his very legacy as president and future GOP kingmaker hang very much in the balance, indeed may have been irretrievably  lost. Like Trump, lost with nowhere to go. Though he will surely be welcomed in Turkey, Russia, not to mention North Korea.  The markets really want to break higher and gap up to new ATH's but Trumps intransigence, denial (of Covid and the election results) and general spite ( no new stimulus)are causing a state of intermarket bearish divergence, with the SP and Nasdaq refusing to break into new ATHs(all time highs).  I guess we will have to wait until he is forced out come 20th Jan. 
    • Good article (new) on strategy planning and testing from Steve Burns. https://www.newtraderu.com/2020/10/25/how-to-create-backtest-and-optimize-a-trading-strategy/ "A trading strategy is the process used to enter and exit positions in a market based on quantified signals on when to buy and sell. A trading strategy will have trading plan to express a methodology that defines a trader’s return goals, risk tolerance, and time frame. A successful strategy should have an edge expressed in how trades are entered and managed to maximize gains and minimize losses."
