Negative divergence points to a short term pullback on 5th wave

attachment.php?attachmentid=32770&stc=1&d=1352683618

 

Hi Auto trader,

Could you please expand on this divergence theory that you are using. I would be really interested to know how it works. Have you seen good results with this theory? If yes, approximately what percentage?

Thanks

TradeCuts.

Lets look back to USDCAD and remember that last week we saw a triangle/bullish flag, a bearish divergence, AND a resistance level approaching. Here we are today dealing with those sings and signals. From 1.11 the price has fallen sharply and given me confirmation that my signals and indicators (tho they're delayed) did not steer me in the wrong direction.

Crude oil remains Canada's biggest dollar export, and this will continue, but the dollar amount may be reduced because of the global oil glut. The Canadian economy is much more than oil or commodities, but the energy sector has the biggest impact on the price of the loonie. The question is where might the loonie be trading if WTI crude were tp sell down into the seventies.

Washington special interests once more prevailed this week when they denied passage of the proposed Canadian Keystone XL pipeline. It has now been six years since initially proposed, and for six years the US government has failed to give Canadian permission to construct this pipeline. As proposed it would ship about 800,000 barrels of oil per day from Alberta Canada to Cushing Oklahoma, and subsequently to the US Gulf.

 

Failure to pass the bill in the US Senate was initially viewed as bearish news for the loonie, but the sell off did not last long. Passage was a long shot at best in the current lame duck session, so traders should not be surprised at the out come.

While oil consumers get a bonus, the producers income takes a hit. Recently Canada had been producing and exporting over 3 millions barrels of oil per day to the US. A 50% reduction will negatively affect the Canadian balance of trade and slow their economy as investment and employment in the oil patch slows. Their currency, in part because of the energy price, has been depreciating.

 

We have two apparent mega trends, demand for safe haven pounds and a disdain for the Canadian Dollar. Since November the GBPCAD has soared from 1.75 to 1.9250. This is a big move, but if we look at a monthly chart the pound may be breaking out, with blue sky above, and perhaps as much as another 1000 pips or more if the fundamental trends continue.

Technically the pair is at the bottom of its 1.2800-1.2400 range and a sharp break below would suggest a distribution pattern. But if the range holds it may simply be a consolidation in what could still be a long term up trend.

The Canadian dollar continues to gain ground, and has inched higher in the Thursday session. Currently, USD/CAD is trading at 1.2891, down 0.10% on the day. On the release front, there are no Canadian data releases. In the US, unemployment claims rose to 229 thousand, higher than the forecast of 225 thousand. On Friday, the US releases durable goods and housing reports.

It’s been a good week for the Canadian dollar, which has gained 1.6 percent against the greenback. This has erased most of last week’s losses. There has been some good news on the NAFTA front, as the US appears to have softened its rigid negotiation position.

      Hi,
      We are doing a university job where we must investigate how banks manage their financial products that require trading, for example, they offer a fund, as they manage capital internally. Could you help me?

      Hi GUYS, Happy Wednesday!
      I'd like to share daily forex analysis from Followme, hope this information helps your trading.
      Today, Let's focus on AUD and NZD.
      AUDUSD is trading at 0.6761; the instrument is moving below Ichimoku Cloud, thus indicating a descending tendency. The markets could indicate that the price may test the cloud’s downside border at 0.6765 and then resume moving downwards to reach 0.6635. Another signal to confirm further descending movement is the price’s rebounding from the descending channel’s upside border. However, the scenario that implies further decline may be canceled if the price breaks the cloud’s upside border and fixes above 0.6825. In this case, the pair may continue growing towards 0.6905.

    • #forex #forexnews #Brexit #GBPUSD is trading at 1.2867, having breached key support on Tuesday, courtesy of Brexit delay. The pound fell below the 50-hour moving average, confirming a bearish reversal on short duration charts. The key MA had consistently reversed pullbacks throughout the rally from 1.22 to 1.30 and may work as stiff resistance henceforth.  The GBP was offered as #PrimeMinister #Johnson's #BrexitBill won parliamentary support, but the government’s timetable of just 3 days debate on the bill was rejected.  With the parliamentary defeat, the probability of Britain leaving the European Union (#EU) before the Oct. 31 deadline has dropped sharply.  Further, a source in Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s office said on Tuesday that a new election would be the only way to move on from Britain’s Brexit crisis if the European Union agrees to a delay until January.  On a daily chart, the uptrend in GBP/USD appears to have stalled. Signs of indecision loom as a #Bearish Harami candlestick pattern risks paving the way for a reversal. Prices are eyeing near-term support which is a range between 1.2773 and 1.2798. A close under this barrier could open the door to testing former highs from September. Otherwise, clearing resistance at 1.3001 prolongs the uptrend. Expectation for GBP to “retest the 1.3010/15 level” was incorrect as GBP rose briefly to 1.3000 before plummeting to 1.2862 during NY hours. Upward pressure has dissipated and the short-term risk is for a deeper pullback. That said, any weakness is viewed as a lower trading range of 1.2810/1.2920 and a sustained decline below 1.2810 appears unlikely for now. Next 1-3 weeks:  #GBP tried to break clearly above 1.3000 for the second straight day yesterday (22 Oct) but slumped after touching 1.3000. For now, there is no change to our view from Monday (21 Oct, spot at 1.2880) wherein “GBP has to ‘punch’ above 1.3000 and register a NY closing above this level in order to indicate that the current rally has enough ‘ammunitions’ to extend to 1.3050, possibly as high as 1.3150”. While there is no change to our view, severely overbought conditions suggest GBP could ill afford to dither below 1.3000 or the risk of a short-term top would increase rapidly. From here, unless GBP cracks and stays above 1.3000 within these 1 to 2 days, a break of 1.2770 (no change in ‘strong support’ level) would indicate that the positive phase that started more than a week ago (see annotations in the chart below) has run its course. Looking ahead, a breach of 1.2770 would suggest that GBP is ready to ‘take a breather’ after the steep rally over the past couple of weeks.  
    • good news indeed, recognized in latin america as well. good job
    • CWM FX was a foreign exchange trading firm located at the Heron Tower at 110 Bishopsgate, otherwise known as Salesforce Tower. Dealing at the firm was suspended in March 2015 following a police raid on the firm and 13 arrests. There have been no convictions relating to these arrests as of 15 June 2015. CEO Anthony Constantinou was convicted in 2016 of sexual assault and sentenced to serve 12 months in jail.[1] London Police later revealed that most of the company's revenue came from a £50m alleged Ponzi scheme which promised returns of 5% per month Real charmer this conman..no? Now sit back and watch how he either fx off or trys to play the victim. Adults don't need moderators.
