The Weekly Update

We would like to begin by covering the  weekly market update we published last week. The New Zealand Dollar (NZD) was our prime focus as we expected moderate losses in EURNZD. We have shifted our protective stop to the entry and realized a minor profit before the price reversed and triggered our stop loss.  We are in a decent profit in our Natural Gas long trade at the time of this writing.

Outside market events such as increased tension between Russia and Ukraine, US military actions against ISIS in Iraq are expected to continue affecting XAU/USD, which has so far benefited from safe-have flows.

EURJPY Technical Analysis

trap in multiple JPY pairs and crosses. The technical chart appears to provide a long entry as key indicators dip into oversold territory with a hint of positive divergence. However, the monthly chart suggests the Japanese yen may strengthen against a basket of currencies over the medium term. Of course, EURJPY may gain for several days and then retrace lower and it is still inline with the monthly outlook.

EURJPY Daily Chart 11/08/14

Our technical models suggests a trap is begin set up to lure in virgin hogs into the market. We have calculated our the Risk Ratio (RR) and it meets our standards. It is essential to highlight the Japanese yen is expected to strengthen against a number of currencies. We have only selected EURJPY in order to limit our market exposure in the Forex market,

Our bearish entry would be at market price, protective stop layered at 137.49, targeting 134.50.

As a precautionary step we limit our analysis to Euro-yen due to mixed technical signals in multiple instruments. We will update our trade alerts throughout the week when an intraday entry is provided in order to minimize our market exposure. We suspect the technical trap will dent many investments.

Key Economic Figure

We believe Thursday’s data will have the biggest impact on global markets. The German Preliminary Gross Domestic Product (GDP), following Italy’s confirmation of a technical recession is expected to be the key economic figure for the upcoming week.
