GBPUSD Trading

Recommended Posts

thinking of going long around 1.5750/60 (wherever the pair meets 34ema) with targets 1.5820&1.5885.

 

jumped in during the Asian session after gbp/usd touched and bounced off of 34EMA (the yellow line)...don't know if I can stay awake till FOMC minutes..anyway, target and stop are set...

have to admit that i hate when London is closed...

I guess gbp/usd will pull back to 1.5777-1.5765 before turning north...daily and 4h charts are bullish, i.e. favoring buy on dips, but a daily close below 1.5750 would change the outlook

Hello Everyone,

Markets resumed after Easter Holidays in NY session yesterday, as the European Markets were closed. Earlier trends from NY session indicate weakening USD against major pairs. Expect USD to weaken further against majors but there is resistance ahead. Keep your longs short.

Outlook – GBP/USD Neutral to Weak

 

Ifyou happen to take this trade do let us know how it turned out for you.

Best

Gbp/usd found good support after consolidating around the expected support level of 1.5140. Even better than expected U.S data was unable to take it to next support level. It has already crossed 1.5300 but at this time trading below this level. I am expecting it to continue towards next resistance level of 1.5347.....

The pound posted strong gains following the non-taper shocker from the Fed, but the dollar recovered much of those losses following strong releases last week. Unemployment Claims were solid, and housing and manufacturing releases looked sharp as well. In the UK, Retail sales was a disappointment late in the week, posting a sharp decline.

I am seeing some strong bearish divergence on the MACD GPB/USD Daily chart. I am usually a S&R trader. But as far as indicators go I have found MACD divergence to be the most reliable. I will be looking for a break on the 1 HR TF. looking for a test of the 15870 low on the Daily. Where BTW we have a missed Weekly Pivot, ( about 6 weeks old ).

    • Hey, I am new to this. Anyone use software like this?? Is it legit?? 
    • Extend Trend Lines is a VTL Client-side indicator for elongating the trend lines on the chart to the last bar. Traders usually draw trend lines on the chart and use them as support resistance levels. When a trend line breakout happens, it is the beginning of a new trend. One issue with trend lines drawn manually on the chart is that they do not get elongated when new bars form on the chart. It should be manually adjusted with new bars.  Extend Trend Lines VTL Indicator takes care of this situation. It automatically adjusts all trend lines on the chart to the last bar. It monitors the trend lines on each new bar and adjust them.  This is useful when the trader opens the terminal on a new day and the old trend lines are short and need adjustments.   ExtendTrendLines.zip
    • Previous day high low is a Client Side VTL indicator that draws the last day’s high, low and today’s open on the chart. When day trading, the previous day’s high and low are important reference points or support resistance levels. In a bullish market price breaks above the previous day’s high early in the day and continue to trade above that level.  In bear markets, price break below the previous day’s low early in the day and continue to trade below that level.  Trading ranges form when price fails to break the previous day’s high or low successfully.  This info alone can improve your trading results as this give you a clear vision of what is likely to happen today. Breakout trading strategies work best when price is above or below yesterday’s range. Trend following strategies also work best in this situation.  When price is inside yesterday range, counter trend strategies work better. Oscillators like RSI and Stochastics work best in this situation.   Prev_Day_High_Low.zip
    • volatility.   STARC bands is used in two modes. First one is as a trend following indicator. For this enter 1.33 for parameter KATR. Now when price breaks out of the bands, there is a high probability that price move will continue in that direction. Open positions in the breakout direction.   To use STARC bands as an oversold overbought indicator, make parameter KATR 3. Now when the price reaches the bands, chances are that it is a short-term price extreme. Countertrend trades can be opened here.   Parameters: 1.       MA_Period – Moving Average Period 2.       ATR_Period – Average True Range Period 3.       KATR – ATR multiplier 4.       Shift – Number of bars to shift forward   STARC Bands.zip
