USDCNH Technical Analysis

USDCNH suffered substantial losses for an extensive period of time. Based on our technical models USDCNH current levels may present the a technical opportunity to reload long trades into the FX markets.

Recent USDCNH dip on the daily chart may very well affirm the right-hand shoulder of reversed Head-And-Shoulders (H&S). From the chart the neckline and the levelling of the shoulders is unclear at the time of this writing. We recognize the potential of entering the trade at market price or placing  an entry order at a lower price, which would in return increase the expected Return on Investment (ROI) and marginally reduce the protective stop loss order.

USDCNH Technical Analysis 27/08/14

After observing intraday time frames we decide to enter the trade at market price and possibly consider increasing the trade size at a lower price should the corrective weakness continue. From risk management perspective we are attaining a decent Risk-Ratio (RR) while not incurring a hefty interest over the swap rates.

USDCNH Technical Strategy

We are targeting the 100% objective of the reversal (6.1850) while placing our protective stop loss order beneath the lower diagonal line (in black). We believe outside market events will be the fundamental trigger for  the technical rally we are expecting from the cross.

We are aware local governments in China are crippled by mounting debts, forcing a new law which has yet to be approved that would allow local governments to borrow directly from the market in the form of municipal bonds.  To clarify, it is difficult for us to pinpoint the fundamental trigger so we place our faith in the technical side of global markets.

It is essential to highlight the spread of USDCNH is quite large and not as tight as other pairs and crosses in the FX markets. Do pay attention for the spread for USDCNH in your trading system.
