Equity Markets Turn Negative

I am a keen watcher of the Indexes and also an active trader of them. If you have been following me, you would know that I am quite a fan of the FTSE 100, as I think it's a very easy index to trade as it does not offer a lot of surprises...

USDX: Looking to Bounce Back

When looking at the US Dollar Index (USDX), I was surprised to notice a sudden pullback on Thursday afternoon. It turned out that the markets reacted unfavorably to the news that continuous jobless claims increased to just over 350,000 last week...

Looking for the GBPJPY to retrace

I have been a big fan of trading against the JPY since the autumn period. There are signs ahead for future JPY weakness, such as the inevitability for future QE...

Why I am watching the USDX

The US dollar is the cornerstone currency on this planet and as such, 80% of global trading activity done in the currency market involves the USD. One of the most interesting and most commonly traded CFDs/indices is the US dollar index...

Gold has witnessed a slight revival so far this month after hitting a three year low in December, when the Federal Reserve somewhat surprised the markets with a QE taper...

Why I am watching Silver

The Silver market is much like the gold market in a sense. A market where both precious markets are traded heavily on a speculative basis...

Expecting the Cable to break through resistance

The UK just released their most impressive annual retail sales data in over nine years, with sales accelerating 5.3%. This resulted in a surge of sterling buyers...

Why the Aussie will continue to drift lower

Last night, the news that 22,600 jobs were cut from the Australian economy in December caused the Aussie to break through the 0.8836 support level...


Why I am still long on the USDJPY

As many market pundits would have noticed in the recent days, the USDJPY has been jumping around frantically and making big moves on the back of volatile US results, as market forecasts turn out to be off the mark, heavily. Despite all of these movements...

Weekly Outlook. January 13, 2014

The Aussie dollar looked to be trending lower last week as markets continued to push it down before nonfarm payroll was well below expectations, leading to a heavy sell down of the US dollar, causing a massive push for the AUD to 90 cents before the market pushed it back...

Oil: Breaks through key trend line

Over the last 24 hours, the oil market took a dramatic turn. After playing on technicals in the month of December and bouncing off its long term trendline strongly, oil looked to be in the resurgence mode as it picked up from the bounce strongly with two massive candles...

Weekly Outlook for January 6th, 2014

The Aussie dollar has looked to consolidate over the new year period as markets have been relatively slow and technical support has been found in a bearish market...

Japan and the case for more stimulus

Japan is one of the worlds largest and most developed economies, and also one of the economies which has experienced significant economic change over the last year as Abenomics has come into play...

Gold and the lead up to FOMC

Last month was a good period if you were a gold trader, a steady bear market was clearly in control and gold trended downwards steadily. Technicals seemed to be in full control and fundamental traders were certainly running away from the precious metal...


Why I am bearish on the AUDNZD pair

The current macroeconomic climate is punishing the AUDNZD pair, as it slips lower and lower every day. Even as the pair starts to look in the oversold territory, the pair is just pushed lower and lower, and just about every day, it

Weekly Outlook. December 16, 2013

The Aussie dollar continued its dramatic decline last week, as the RBA governor Glenn Stevens took further action against the AUD, after commenting that he believed the current fair value of the AUD should be 0.85 cents to the USD...

FTSE 100: Index of the week

The FTSE 100 is an interesting index, it's nothing like the S&P 500 which is just purely bullish, and its certainly no Nikkei which is jumping around in line with the Yen...


The AUDNZD bearish trend extends

I have to admit, as an analyst and trader, that the AUDNZD pair has taken me by surprise. The aggressive nature of the downward trend has been surprising at best, and incredibly strong...

Christmas Shopping with the Yen

It is that time of the year again. I am sure many of you have heard of the common adage saying it is best to stay out of the markets in December...

The Yen is Still Your Friend

The Yen is, as always, polarising traders and markets with its movements and nowhere is this more apparent than with the Euro currencies, where stark uptrends and bullish movements are the flavour of the month...


Weekly Outlook. December 09, 2013

The Aussie dollar continued to fall over the week, as pressure mounted on the currency from overseas markets, and as the RBA continued its crusade against the currency...

Why I am trading against the JPY

Since Abenomics was introduced, the JPY has plummeted in value. The aggressive monetary policy was supposed to achieve two goals...

What caused the EURUSD pullback?

Last week, the surprisingly bullish EURUSD trend line was fully broken. There are reasons to believe it was overwhelmed, considering the ongoing EU economic problems, but not many foresaw the bullish trend to be so abruptly disrupted...
