Market Update 11/2 – USD Confused before FOMC

Clarity is lacking ahead of FOMC as it pertains to general USD direction. The ‘break’ lower in the USD last week proved false but one can make the case that action since September high is 5 waves down and 3 waves up. The rally has retraced 61.8% of the decline too so it’s possible that price resumes lower now. Confidence in direction is extremely low right now. Hopefully, this clears up post-FOMC.

Market Update 10/21 – How Big a USD Bounce?

USDOLLAR turned up from corrective channel support. Again, my ‘view’ is that the buck has rolled over so I’ll be paying close attention to sentiment in the coming days. For example, strong USD forecasts would suggests that it’s time to short the USD. Price wise, pay attention to 12020s and 12060s for resistance.

Market Update 10/19 – USDCAD Bounce Time?

USDCAD has spent 4 days trading around the 61.8% retrace of the rally from the June low. Also, today’s long lower wick and 4 hour volume reversal (see below) suggest that a relief bounce could take hold. With resistance probably not until 1.2490s, I’m willing to trade the long side against today’s low.
