Market Update 5/4 – NZDUSD Tags Key Level

Kiwi has traded in a textbook fashion over the last week or so. Resistance at the channel high…hard break of the center line…center line acting as resistance…and finally the lower channel line holding.

Market Update 4/28 – Short Term USDJPY Idea

USDJPY did indeed pull back from 109.00. My near term view is that the drop is a 4th wave within a 5 wave rally from the 4/23 low. Ideal is support is 108.52/55. This is the 38.2% retrace of proposed wave 3 and the 4/20 high.

Market Update 3/16 – Watching USDCHF on FOMC

BTCUSD has dropped in 5 waves from the high made over the weekend. The implication is that this rally ends with a lower high before at least one more leg lower. The 2 levels to keep in mind for resistance are the former 4th wave high at 57,341 and the 61.8% retrace at 58,511.

Market Update: March 2

GBPUSD completed its 5 wave drop today and focus is on identifying the end of a 3 wave corrective bounce. The ideal zone for the corrective top is 1.4050-1.4100. A small pullback followed by a rally into that zone is what I’m looking for.

Market Update 3/1 – Well-Defined Level for RBA

BTCUSD bounced sharply today with stocks and commodity currencies…still all the same trade. Price could turn down right here, which is VWAP from the high and possible channel resistance. At minimum, risk is well-defined for those looking to position for downside in BTCUSD.

Market Update: January 25

daBTCUSD bounced just before 28000 and turned down today at 34888…right at noted VWAP resistance. Resistance registered where it needed to in order to maintain that price has topped and is headed lower. Don’t forget about the 2 bar weekly volume reversal that registered last week.

Market Update: January 21

BTCUSD has turned down sharply following last week’s 2 bar weekly volume reversal. If you want to play in this sandbox, then pay attention to 35000 for resistance and 28000 for the next bounce level. The latter level is a spike low and VWAP from the November low. The former level is defined by VWAP from the high and 2021 VWAP.

Market Update: January 18

BTCUSD made a 2 bar weekly volume reversal last week. TradeStation historical is limited but this is the 2nd 2 bar weekly volume reversal since 2019. The 2019 signal identified an important top. Bitcoin news mentions have also gone parabolic (see below). This isn’t a surprise but it’s comforting to see the data. In other words, the speculative excess isn’t anecdotal.

Market Update 1/5/2021 – Bitcoin Warning

Bitcoin! There aren’t enough superlatives to describe the recent rise. That said, pay attention at this level. Yesterday (first trading day of the year), BTCUSD completed a 2 day volume reversal. This means that the price rallied on significant volume and declined on significant volume the very next day. BTCUSD price history on TradeStation starts in August 2011 so this ‘study’ is in no means exhaustive. Still, the only other 2 day volume reversal occurred at the June 2019. Price is also at the top of an extremely steep channel so I’m on alert for something else besides parabolic rally.
