Euro still have bullish settup and current hesitation marks the last major bullish technicality before 1,26 lows. As long as Euro maintains current lows, looks like Euro and Pound will go separate ways, which makes EUR/GBP cross an interesting medium term buy oportunity (for 0,86 and higher).

Short term trend is neutral but i think the overall picture remains negative.A decisive fall below the 1.2860 in the near future to make way for the main support zone of 1.2760.

EURUSD which is making me so happy I cant believe it's not butter. This pair has been on a slippery slope for the past 2-3 weeks and has finally found some support around our entry of 1.296...exactly where I thought it would seeing as how this is the 61.8% retracement level on the weekly chart and historical support going back to 2013 and 2012. For this pair I see small buying at first to shake up the shorts and get them to offer up more EUROs at lower prices just so the big boys can come in and carry the price right back to our 1.32-1.33 range. From there I'm looking for my target at 1.37 to be hit.

EUR/USD formed an inverted hammer candlestick in the four hour filter chart and headed up. Considering that there's also very strong support in the 1.2660-1.2700 zone. Anyone think it'll go up from here??

Dollar has been lower this week with the market discounting what appears to be a weaker global growth. I think the FED will start to pull USD back against the main currencies, or the damage will be big for them.

Until 1.2690 - 1.2700 is convincingly broken to the downside this is still a breakout retest for the bulls and probably being viewed as a good buying opportunity by many, just saying bears beware.

The sharp drop in the EURUSD was finally interrupted this past week. From an early week low around 1.2500, the euro rallied to 1.2790 before settling back toward the middle of the weekly range, and closing at 1.2626. Considering the hefty presence of speculative shorts in this market, the latest COT report issued Friday afternoon showed specs to be short almost 200K contracts of futures and delta adjusted options, it is perplexing the rally was so feeble. Unless you consider the bleak EU economic forecasts.

E/U has definitely made a significant bounce from 1.25 and the madness yesterday helped to push it up further. Though the trend may still be down as seen in longer TFs, it may be looking for a correction that could go all the way up to 1.31xx.

 

I guess now it's just time to wait for price to find its ground, could be around 1.2790 and Daily Pivot @ 1.2782 before it decides to retest and maybe make new HH.

The EUR/USD saw a steep selloff today as rumors circulated in the market that at least 11 banks will likely fail the ECB bank stress test results due this Sunday. The pair drifted all the way to 1.2637 by end of day. However, the decline today could pale in comparison to what could could happen tonight. The worries about the financial sector are overblown as the banks in question are small regional players and are unlikely to have much impact on the European banking system. The much more important factor is economic growth and to that point tonight's flash PMI data will provide the most accurate reading of conditions on the ground. If PMI show a steep decline and more importantly if the data shows that Germany has moved into contraction then EUR/USD could retest its lows at 1.2500

It was a very slow Friday EUR/USD was trading around the support unable to break it. I think we will see a correction with the start of next week price most probably will test 1.2700

      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.

      So I've been 18 for about 4 months, since I turned 18 I started up an account, and basically thought I was doing amazing because of beginners luck, put in some of my savings and managed to do well, some days I would make £200, one day I even made £900, after time I lost my profits and made a loss as well. I've realised I need to spend the time analysing the market and making technical judgments. I'm trying to read more and spend a lot of my time looking at the charts. is there any advice people can give me. and is making 5% a week a realistic goal to set myself? before anyone assumes that im looking for a get rich quick scheme, im certainly not, I see every loss ive made as a lesson and ensure that I learn from each mistake I make. 
      any advice about indicators, strategies, how to analyse the market, or even analysing earning reports would help me.

      Firebird is an indicator to identify the price spikes in the market. Firebird indicator first calculates a 10-period moving average, then shifts this moving average a certain percentage above and below the 10-period moving average. The shifted averages are drawn on chart as the red and green line. When price touches these lines, price spike is identified. Usually after a price spike, the trend reverses for some time. The indicator can be used to take advantage of this price behaviors. In daily chart usually the 10 period MA is shifted by 2 percent to form the price bands. On lower time frames like Hourly, Four Hour a smaller percentage price shift is used like 0.5% . The important consideration here is most of the price bars must be contained within the upper and lower bands.
      When price reaches above the upper red band, a sell position is opened. When price reaches the lower green band, buy position is opened. Trades can be managed with proper stop loss and take profit. In the picture, Firebird indicator is attached to daily chart of EUR/USD with 2% shift on MA. Note that almost all price bars are within the price bands. And when price extends beyond these bands, price trend reverses and comes back into the bands.

      How to reduce eroding Forex slippages? Slippage is more likely to occur in times of higher volatility (perhaps due to market events) and it makes a market order at a specific price impossible to execute. Such times are when large orders are executed, when market orders are used and when there is not enough interest at the desired price level to keep the expected trade price. 

       
      Slippage is neither negative or positive movements, it is simply the difference between the expected purchase price and actual executed price. Since the corresponding securities are bought and sold at the most favorable price available, an order can result differently. In this situation, most forex dealers will execute the trade at the next best price.  In forex world, the market prices changes fast and the slippage happens in times of delay between the order placed and its completion. 

       
      Slippage is the difference between the expected filled price of a trade and the actual price filled. In other words, when your trade is executed at a worse price than requested, so it is “slipping” from the original order price. It happens between the time that a trader enters the trade and the time the trade is made. It can happen to everyone in any given trading market; stock, currency, or commodity.

       
      This may be caused by an ineffective broker, increased liquidity and fast market. The forex market is very liquid and there are limited amounts of slippage.

      Thanks!

      Does it mean that you are an expert just because you make a lot of profit? The amount of profit cannot be used to measure the value of a trader. Yes, you must be doing something right if you are making a frequent profit. However, that does not determine if you are an expert or not just by your profit. This is quite a common misunderstanding in the forex industry.
      Making a large profit is only one side of the forex market. Majority of forex traders tend to lose most of the time after they have experienced profit. But why?
      So many traders fall into a fantasy land where they make an endless amount of money at the beginning. Many beginner traders tend to gain profit at the start not knowing the importance of technical analysis of the market.
      The experts on the other hand who stayed became wealthy and stayed that way, continue gaining profit, are all knowledgeable when it comes to the basics. Experts have dialed many ways to control their minds to be set right to be a trader.
      Understanding of the market is a must know anyway. Expert traders wait patiently until the right opportunity comes. Opportunity comes to everyone.
      What differentiates the experts and the beginners is that experts know when the opportunity has come and knows to take advantage of it. Making profit by luck is possible, and yes luck is also very important. But can you profit with luck every time?
      How an expert trader is determined is not by how much the person gained, it’s about the precision and the frequency of results. Profit can’t be maintained by luck. It is maintained and is a result of precision and strategical execution. You shouldn’t worry because you’re not gaining any profit right now.
      You should be building your skill sets to be a better trader by experiencing many trading situations of losses and wins. If you invest in your time to improve, your results are guaranteed to increase more frequently and will become more stable.

    • 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
