17 Currency Pair Trade Results

Fully confident in Trading abilities, 17 Currency Pair Trades to include exact entries and targets posted this week. A multi year goal was forecast perfectly all 28 Currency pair entry and targets but weekend time failed to permit the enormous time and calculations to factor all 28.

Below are trade results per currency pair, pip counts, entries, targets and weekly ranges. This serves to answer how good were the trades. Normal weeks are issued 2 way trades however this week offered only 1 way trades in trend direction. Pip counts factored based on entry instruction. Personal interest is trade performance, accuracy and models rather than pip counts. Failure to achieve full targets saw failed at reported “Must Cross” Points.

Overall Highlights

9 of 17 Currency trades achieved perfect to near perfect targets. All entries were perfect to near perfect except EURUSD and off 50 ish Pips for GBPNZD. EUR/USD recovered to week near entry with a 4 pip loss. No losses were seen all week except EURUSD.
Long time followers would automatically know from past experience, off entry against a known target means add 1 lot to trade to target, small profit or break even. Only EUR/AUD and USD/CAD went beyond weekly target.

CADJ/PY and NZD/JPY hardly participated in this week’s trades. USD/CAD and USD/JPY achieved perfect targets but 20 ish pip miss on entry. The commonality to missed entry was 20 ish pips.

The Trades

GBP/AUD Entry 1.7721, 1.7697 to target 1.7942. Weekly Range 1.7671 – 1.7983. From 1.7697 entry to 1.7942 target +245 Pips.

Weekly Trades USD/JPY and Cross Pairs

One time shot to earn 886 weekly pips. For trades contact brian@btwomey.com

The JPY pairs to trade in order for maximum trade pips are as follows: GBP/JPY, EUR/JPY, AUD/JPY, NZD/JPY, USD/JPY, CHF/JPY and CAD/JPY.

Following are 7 weekly trades, 7 entries, 7 targets. Brief trade methodologies are offered as well as longer term targets for traders interested in longer term hold periods. As usual no charts, graphs nor stops needed and no reference to the latest market talk which serves no purpose to price trading except to talk.

USD/JPY offers practically nothing to all JPY cross pairs because on its own, it lacks range. Absolute bottom is located at 106.02, up 83 pips from last July at 105.19.

The weekly break point for higher /lower is located at 109.01, above targets 109.93 then 110.10. Massive resistance is located at 110.28, 110.40 and 110.85.

Long 107.40 and 107.17 to target 108.73. USD/JPY must cross higher 108.09 and 108.45. Longer term target 110.10. Trade 107.40 to 108.73 contains 135 pips.

GBP/JPY. Long 135.42 and 135.12 if seen to target 137.77. Must cross 135.72 and 136.74. This trade contains 235 pips yet long for 235 pips is minuscule in relation to the 147.00 longer term target. Brexit severely holds GBP/JPY and all GBP pairs from much higher levels.

EUR/JPY. January Flash Crash lows, 118.00’s, Closed 121.58, Break Point 122.91. Target 124.88, Massive Brick Walls 125.72 and many 126.00’s. Won’t break anytime soon. Long only strategy to 124, deeply oversold.

NZD/JPY. Long 71.38 and 71.13 if seen to target 72.39. Must cross 71.64 and 72.14. Long above 72.64 to target 73.63. Must cross 73.13. This trade contains 101 pips.

CHF/JPY. Absolute bottom is located at 106.03.

Long 109.35 and 109.12 to target 109.61. Must cross to target 109.35 and 109.57. Above 109.80 targets 110.24. This trade contains 40 pips from 109.12.

GBP/USD, Cross Pairs and Brexit

On year 3 year of the Brexit anniversary asks the question how devastating was the GBP fall. The analytical answer must view in the context of the 2500 pip parameter for the most widely traded exchange rate combinations of EUR/USD, USD/JPY and EUR/JPY from 2000 -2008 and 2008 – 2015.

A 2500 pip move in any direction was met not only by a brick wall of resistance but a large correction was the only alternative for a long period of time until or unless the parameter walls moved to allow a further continuation past the 2500 inflection point. GBP/USD however due to its wider ranges is afforded nearly a 3000 pip parameter yet 2500 generally serves its purpose to comply with corresponding non GBP currency pairs.

GBP/USD fell from 1.5000’s -1.1800’s or roughly a 3200 pip move and now sits at 1.2500’s. The 66 year historical context to 1.2500’s dating to 1953 is 1.2500 is a non existent price and never before seen except for the August 1984 -May 1985 Plaza Accords when the G5 nations engineered USD higher. GBP/USD traded then 1.04 lows to 1.1900 highs. Subtract the Plaza Accords equation then 1.2500’s now trades in uncharted territory.

From the 2008 crash highs at 1.8891 to 1.2513 lows, the 11 year mid point is located at 1.5702. The 66 year mid point from 2.8151 -1.0438 lows is located at 1.9294. From the 1972 free float from 2.6189 -1.2513 lows, the mid point is located at 1.9351.

The BOE’s 21 year governing interest rate, Sonia, traded 4.9970 at the 2008 crash and dropped to 0.4099 April 2009 and its 11 year mid point is located at 2.70. From April 2009 -June 2016, Sonia monthly averages reported a paltry range from 0.4099 – 0.5486 for a 0.4792 mid point. Upon the Brexit announcement, Sonia dropped from 0.4598 highs -0.2106 lows for a 0.3352 mid point. Sonia now trades since September 2018 at 0.70 and hardly moves from its 0.70 base and 0.70 is a long way from the 21 year mid point at 3.88.

How devastating was Brexit is explained by GBP/USD, Sonia and headline interest rates trade at historic lows never before seen in the UK’s rich and glorious history.

Forecasts

GBP/USD to reach a fraction of normalization must trade to a minimum of 1.2900’s against a longer term target at 1.3600’s. The governing average today is located at 1.4700’s and 1.5200’s 1 year ago. Currently 1.2500’s is deeply oversold. We’re looking at absolute bottoms at the 1.2300 -1.2400 vicinity.

GBP/AUD trades below its vital break point average at 1.8500’s but at 1.7900’s faces its range low point at 1.7400’s. GBP/AUD is a range currency pair for the most part but afforded wide latitude within its ranges and once traded 1976 lows at 1.2700’s but lived the majority of its 66 year history at 2.000;s.

GBP/JPY must trade to its minimum normalization point at 142.00’s and 143.00’s against its long term target at 147.00’s. Historical 66 year first ever lows were seen in 2011 -2012 from 117.00’s -126.00’s.

GBP/NZD must trade to ts minimum normalization point at 1.9300’s. GBP/NZD at 1.8800’s is the result of the 1300 pip drop from 2.0100’s. At 1.9300’s is fairly respectable for GBP/NZD.

GBP/CAD must trade to 1.7100’s just to reach a respectable normalization. GBP/CAD’s 66 year history traded 2011 -2013 lows from 1.5200’s to 1.6400’s. At current 1.6300’s, GBP/CAD trade its post crash lows.

GBP/CHF must trade to 1.2800’s against a longer term target at 1.3200’s. At 1.2300’s, GBP/CHF trades in uncharted territory in relation to its 66 year history which began at 11.0000’s and 12.000’s. Only one time, Oct 2010, GBP/CHF closed at 1.2100’s. In 66 years, GBPCHF downtrend has been slow and steady and now trades at its lowest ever seen points. Brexit allowed a continuation to the downtrend.

EUR/USD and the ECB

Previous comments to ECB comatose was incredibly wrong because EURUSD and ECB context to create characteristically a permanent Neutral Currency was missed. Yet neutrality is performed daily through non move able interest rates.

I desperately desired to state in my article the ECB is more interested in EUR neutrality rather than its price, or new highs and lows but my article was sent to fxstreet. And we all know what fxstreet primitive collusion delusion is all about.

The EUR neutrality is permanent and won’t ever leave its Neutral created foundations. New highs and lows are seen only in the context of neutrality, EUR price position and where neutral position began is paramount to trade EUR and all EUR pairs.

Ex. 1.1411 was a new high but it ended a 5 day daily run. Daily prices today operate on a 5 day up and down scale as opposed to 14 and 17 days pre 2016 and ECB new interest rate scheme.

1.1411 contained no meaning as it occurred on the 5th up day. Smart ECB‘s 5 year plan since 2014. 1. Go negative Interest rates 2. 2016 Redesign interest rates 3. Maintain neutral but shorten trading Ranges.

The message was EUR lower for longer yet the ECB gave EUR its funeral and sent it to its proper resting place. To Trade EUR properly is imperative to understand how and why neutrality operates with all EUR pairs price context.
