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.

What are your thoughts guys on near-term price direction? Should we expect that dollar will appreciate further pressuring CAD? Oil market looks really fragile and it is well-known that CAD is quite sensitive to commodity price swings.

      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?
      Thank you!

      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.

Another signal to confirm further descending movement is the price’s rebounding from the resistance level.

    • Date: 19th July 2024.   Global Stocks Tumble as Risk Appetite Plummets!   US ECONOMY The NASDAQ declines for a third straight day and fell to its lowest level for July. Netflix Quarterly Earnings Report unable to support US indices. The Dow Jones loses momentum after 6 straight bullish days. The US Dollar Index attempts to regain losses from earlier in the week and trades 0.65% higher than yesterdays The British Pound comes under pressure from the decline in Retail Sales. However, the New Zealand Dollar continues to be the worst performing currency. GBPUSD   The British Pound against the US Dollar is losing momentum for two reasons. The first is that the exchange rate is largely being driven by the Dollar which has risen in value across the board. The US Dollar Index is attempting to regain loses from earlier in the week and trades 0.65% higher than yesterdays open. This is partially due to the lower price but also the lower investor sentiment as stocks falls over the past 3 trading days.     The second reason is the poor economic data from the UK which is likely to pressure the Bank of England to adjust interest rates at the next meeting. According to economists a 25-basis point cut at the next meeting is not yet certain. However, a cut will take place either on the 1st of August or September 19th unless something drastic changes. The poor data includes the number of new unemployed individuals which has considerably risen over the past 2 months. This morning, the UK government also confirmed Retail Sales has fallen 1.2% which is double the decline previously expected.   For the US, weekly employment data was released yesterday: the number of Unemployment claims rose by 243,000, exceeding both the forecast of 229,000 and the previous figure of 223,000. Additionally, the total number of citizens receiving government assistance increased from 1.847 million to 1.867 million, raising the likelihood of interest rate adjustments in September. According to most analysts, the rate cut for September is fully priced in at around 103.20 for as long as other central banks also adjust.   The US Federal Reserve’s Beige Book, published this week, indicates that economic activity is growing at a moderate pace, but businesses expect a slowdown over the next six months due to the US election campaign and consumers struggling with prices. However, the lower risk appetite is triggering higher demand for the Dollar over the past 48 hours. It’s vital investors continue to monitor the US Dollar Index while analysing the GBPUSD.   The price of the exchange is now trading below the 75-Period EMA and below the 50.00 on the RSI. This indicates low sentiment towards the Pound and bearish control for the time being. Fibonacci retracement levels indicate a sell signal will arise at the 1.29290 price whereas the breakout level indicates 1.29261. however, if the price rises above 1.29400 or the trendline, short-term sell signals become unlikely.   USA100   The price of the NASDAQ has now fallen for 3 consecutive days but did see less downward momentum compared to Wednesday’s collapse. The index has now fully corrected the gains for the first 2 weeks of the month and is trading close to the previous support level. However, as previously mentioned, due to the higher economic risk, investors will most likely need strong earnings data to be tempted to purchase the discount unless the price becomes even more favourable.     The price of Bond Yields has risen during this morning’s Asian session and the VIX is also trading slightly higher. The VIX this week has already added almost 10% which indicates a significant decline in risk appetite. In addition to this, the poor data from the rest of the world’s leading economies can also damage sentiment towards stocks. Currently the biggest indication for short term upward price movement is the lower price and potential upcoming earnings data.   Netflix has released their earnings report overnight. The company’s earnings read 2.40% higher than expectations at $4.88 and revenue was 3 million higher than expectations. However, the stock is yet to see any major volatility or support. Currently the stock trades 0.18% lower.     Always trade with strict risk management.
