Market Update 11/1 – EURJPY Elliott Pattern and Trade Idea

Action since the October high in EURJPY is probably a 4th wave. As such, expectations are for a 5th wave rally to a new high. A possible target is 134.29, which is the 61.8% retrace of the 2014-2016 decline and where the rally from the May 2020 low would consist of 2 equal legs. Watch for support near 132.00.

Market Update 10/28 – Euro vs. North America?

Remember the channel from the January high? EURUSD has confirmed a false break below the channel…which is bullish (low of the last 3 days is right at the channel line). Near term, I’m thinking 1.0700/30 puts up a fight. If it does, then watch for support near 1.0640. The next 3 charts show instances when EURUSD made a 5 day low and 20 day high on the same day. Today is just the 4th time that has happened since the euro’s inception. In the previous 3 instances, the ‘show of strength’ day (Wyckoff term) preceded large advances although not necessarily right away.

Market Update 7/13 – Get Ready for RBNZ and BoC!

Kiwi continues to play out beautifully. .7000 has provided resistance the last 3 days and focus remains on .6750-.6800. RBNZ is tonight (Wednesday in New Zealand) so it’s possible that we get a flush into .6800 or so before a rebound. For us, this sets up a possible opportunity to flip from short to long.
