Thursday Charts That Matter

Good morning. The euro and other risk-sensitive currencies gained more ground since Tuesday and it’s likely that they would continue on the same path in the coming days.

EURUSD

Market sentiment: intraday – bullish, short-term – bullish

Potential trade strategy: to buy either on break of 1.3150 or on a pullback to 1.3050, target at 1.3250+

EURGBP

Resistance at .8100 was breached and provides short-term support now.

Market sentiment: intraday – bullish, short-term – bullish

Potential trade strategy: to hold long, target at .8200+

AUDUSD

Aussie dollar recovered a lot of ground yesterday, so it’s likely that intraday corrections won’t get too far below current trading levels. 1.0330 is the intraday support zone where I think it would find decent bids (see 4hrs chart below)

Market sentiment: intraday – bullish, short-term – neutral

Potential trade strategy: to buy on pullback to 1.0330, target at 1.0500

EURJPY

EURJPY is yet another pair on the breakout watching.

Market sentiment: intraday – bullish, short-term – neutral

Potential trade strategy: to buy or hold long while it holds above 102.70/00, target at 107 (short-term)

GBPAUD

1.5600 has been breached and it’s likely that decline will continue, as AUD is strengthening across the board. Selling on a weak pullback to 1.5600 is tempting

Market sentiment: intraday – bearish, short-term –  bullish

Potential trade strategy: to sell on pullback to 1.5600, target at 1.5300

    The stock markets in developed countries seem to head for multi-year high this month. With such a build, I agree EUR/USD should perform well.

    Friday DOW ans SP were both set back by google's unexpected dispointed Q3, which let the market worried about US economy so strengthening US dollar. In near term, I am neutral. I think EURO will stay in range for a while..
