GBP/NZD is within reach of the yearly highs and a break above the 2.0300 level puts the pair on path towards 2.0500 while 2.000 now offers solid support.

Technically, today’s rally in AUD/NZD has taken the currency pair to the first standard deviation Bollinger Band, a potential level of resistance. If AUD/NZD breaks above this point, the next resistance will be at 1.0920. On the downside, there is some support at 1.07 but the more significant support is at the 8 year low near 1.05.

Technically EUR/GBP is now consolidating and basing after a steep selloff with support coming in at 8160 while resistance is at 8350. If the pair can push higher then the next upside level is 8500 while a break below the year's lows opens a run towards 8000.

With the European Central Bank meeting later today, EUR is in play. EUR/JPY in particular has been confined within a narrow 200 pip range for the past 3 days between 136 and 138, making the currency pair prime for a breakout. Central bank rate decisions are the perfect catalyst for big moves even if the ECB does not change interest rates. Every month the head of the ECB delivers a press conference where he provides his latest economic and monetary policy outlooks. Mario Draghi’s comments almost always move the euro as traders express their enthusiasm or disappointment with the central bank’s views. EUR/JPY’s reaction to Draghi will depend on whether he acknowledges the recent economic improvements in the economy or ignores them again. Having only strengthened their forward guidance last month, the central bank will be wary of sounding overly optimistic and risk driving rates higher. The odds favor EUR/JPY negative comments from the ECB but most market participants expect the central bank to be dovish so any hint of optimism could send EUR/JPY sharply higher.

GBP/CAD:

GBP/CAD tested but failed to break below 1.80 for the past 4 trading days. This level was also an important area of resistance in mid January. Given the fundamental outlook, we think there is a chance this support will break at which point the next stop will be 1.78. On the upside, if GBP/CAD breaks above 1.82, the currency pair could extend to 1.84.

AUD/NZD remains in a broad 1.0500-1.0900 range with the pair still holding on at the top end of the channel. A break above 1.0930 opens the path to a test of the key 1.1100 figure, while a break below 1.0730 creates the conditions for a run to the lower end of the channel at the 1.0500 area

AUD/USD:

 

The daily candle closed bearish, just missing a recent high from Jan 13th 2014

Look s like resistance at the upper B band.

 

Also , on the weekly chart it seems to have resistance at the middle band.

I don't use BB. I do know one well known analyst who would consider the daily chart, with the candle between the middle and upper band to be in the "Buy Zone". I have a hard time subscribing to that.

Any regular BB users out there care to give an opinion?

( the daily should have been first, I got it reversed. Sorry).

EUR/CHF has been in a very long 1.2200-1.2500 channel spanning several years. Every time it has approached the 1.2100 level the pair has been able to rally, but if support is broken the cascade of stops could accelerate the momentumto a true test of the 1.2000 level.

    • Can I ask what broker are you using for trading oil?
    • 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
