Other AUD & NZD Pair Discussions (GBPNZD, EURAUD, AUDCAD Etc.)Hi, Seeing the increase in posts on various currency pairs, we have decided to start generic threads, this one being for less traded AUD & NZD pairs. All items related to these pairs should go in here, *unless* there is a specialized topic or question related to them. We will err on the side of caution and assume discussions on the pair should be in this thread. I hope this will keep the forums clean, discussions coherent and synchronized.

Igor posted a topic in Trading DictionarySince countries pegging their currencies to the currency of another country are looking to prevent major price changes, large and developed economies are generally used as the source of the peg. For this reason, the US Dollar is usually used to peg currency values but other currencies such as the Euro and British Pound have also been used.
U.S. Treasury Definition
Igor posted a topic in Trading DictionaryThe US Treasury is an executive department of the US government that oversees the fiscal policy and management of the US economy. It has many organs with which it carries out this function. Some of these organs are the US Mint (responsible for production of the bank notes of the US Dollar and the cent coins), the Inland Revenue Service (IRS) which is responsible for enforcement of tax compliance and the Office of Foreign Assets and Control which enforces economic and trade sanctions against individuals, corporations and countries, based on US foreign policy and national security goals.
GBP/USD for the Week of September 13thAs expected, the Bank of England left its benchmark interest rate unchanged at 0.5% and also announced that it will continue with its “emergency” bond-purchase program as is; with target holdings set at 200 billion pounds. The GBP/USD pair remained above the 1.5400 mark following the announcement and has risen to levels as high as 1.5475 going into the 15:00 GMT fixing hour on Thursday. Today’s high, coupled with yesterday’s high slightly above 1.5530 still keep the GBP/USD pair just below the 38.2% Fib retracement levels of 1.5562 on the 4-hour charts from its August 6th top. If this holds as a level of resistance for the remainder of the week and the 4-hour MACD continues to decline, entry levels along the 1.5520-1.5470 range could be seen as attractive for opening short positions in the pair going into Friday. Profit targets of 110-200 pips, for hopes of collection early in next week’s trading, could be set at the 1.5360-1.5320 range. For those with a broader perspective, if the 1.5320 is reached again either Friday or next week, this would place the GBP/USD near the 38.2% Fib retracement levels from its rise off mid-May bottoms. The daily chart also shows the daily MACD leveling off. There is no particular trade being setup in my mind with this information, just something to keep in mind if you prefer the broader view of the daily rather than hourly charts. As usual, these observations are solely my opinion and do not constitute any form of investment or trading advice.
