The currency price is again the topic.
How about the number 2500. The EUR/USD bottomed at 1.03 and headed to a correction but to where was the end of the correction. EUR/USD 1.03 plus 2500 = 1.2800. GBP/USD bottomed at 1.1900. GBP/USD 1.1900 plus 2500 = 1.4400.
How is Danske, Society General and Bank of America doing against EUR/USD 1.3000. Will USD/JPY see 116 in 3 months as is the current prognostication for Bank of America. Of course not and don’t push your luck to 113.

From 1998 to 2008 and from 2008 to 2015, the number 2500 held deep significance but how it stacks up today and how close is 2500 is unknown. To know 2500 is to enter and calculate many numbers and most won’t perform the necessary work.
USD/JPY and JPY cross pairs are creatures of a far different animal than its counterpart currency pairs as 2500 requires a constant adjustment. Again, this is much work to know.
See EUR/AUD target at 1.5939 Wedneday. Its traded to 1.5863. It also required an adjustment. Remember the overall target at 1.5738 from 1.6100’s. Don’t lose sight. See EUR/NZD 1.7027 target, it traded to 1.7006 and required adjustment.
What are prices banks trade. Always the wrong price as they don’t trade central bank numbers but trade their own thin air, phantom numbers.
