Trading Currency Pair Price Spreads

Dear friends, long time followers and the many recent traders to the site

Merry Christmas and God’s love, grace and mercies to a new healthy, happy and prosperous new year.

Idleness to postings is the result of a 70 -80 page book on the wild Congressional election of 1870 in South Carolina and scheduled to publish sometime in January.

The book is derived from 6 months of research and from original research as the papers and testimony from both candidates. Original research from Congress, S.C archives, Congressional Globe, Annals of Congress and 1000’s upon 1000’s of newspaper articles covering 10 ish years.

GBP/USD closed 1.3530 and USD/CAD 1.2841 or 689 pips. This spread is far to wide. As was sent to FX Street and never published, we’ve seen rare days of 1100 pip spreads. Normal is 300 to 500 then 6 to 8 requires warning and above 800 then free trades and free money exists.

Last Sunday open, the spread was 700 ish pips and on Monday, GBP fell 300 pips to 1.3100’s and USD/CAD rose about 300 to high 1.2900’s from low 1.2700’s. Once the spread regained a normal 200 and 300 pips then the spread widened again to current 700 pips.

The message to trading spreads for GBP/USD and USD/CAD is either GBP is overbought or oversold or USD/CAD is overbought or oversold. Today, GBP/USD is overbought and USD/CAD is oversold. Spreads expand and contract, expand and contract and all based on the price and nothing else. GBP and CAD is the best currencies to trade spreads due to its perfect opposite price relationship.

Another way to view and trade spreads is GBP/CHF is derived from GBP/USD and CAD/CHF. For CAD/CHF is the opposite pair to USD/CAD and opposite to GBP/CHF.

Note how EUR/NZD and GBP/NZD always maintains an 1800 pip spread. Any trading day and anytime of any trading day, the spread maintains 1800 pips. GBP/NZD closed 1.9012 and EUR/NZD 1.7114 or 1898 pip spread. The spread is off by 98 pips and a free 98 pip trade. Either GBP/NZD must drop or EUR/NZD must rise. I have EUR/NZD rise this week.

EUR/NZD and GBP/CAD are opposite pairs. GBP/CAD closed at 1.7376 and EUR/NZD 1.7114 or 262 pips and at extremes to spreads. GBP/CAD lower this week will close the gap.

Always note price crossovers for free trades. If EUR/NZD rises and GBP/CAD drops then the dividing line between both is 1.7245. This is the point of either a crossover will occur then expansion or prices will again contract.

GBP/USD Vs USD/CAD dividing line is 1.3185 and note GBP/USD last week hit exactly at 1.3185. A break above or below 1.3185 is required for GBP/USD or USD/CAD to crossover and see price expansion. But 1.3185 is the point of contraction as was seen last week.

GBP/NZD and EUR/NZD won’t ever see crossovers to prices because the spread of prices is far to wide. GBP/AUD and EUR/AUD won’t ever trade crossovers because the spread is far to wide.

EURUSD Vs Current NZDCHF as the bottom most currency price.

Current NZDCHF 0.6313 V EURUSD 1.2178

Take 1.2178 – 0.6313 = 0.5865

0.5865 Divide by 2 = 0.2932

NZDCHF 0.6313 + 0.2932 = NZDCAD 0.9245

NZDCAD Close 0.9168 V target 0.9245

Watch NZD/CAD 0.9245 as a contraction point and price drops.

NZDJPY Close 73.71, Big High/ Low Break point 72.07 or 164 pips.

From 0.7371 to move the decimal point, Big High/ Low Break point becomes 67.05 or 667 pips from 73.71 or 667 pips from 0.7371 to 0.6705.

No difference to the Distribution, scales remain the exact same. The only question is how far one wishes to view the price.


EURNZD 0.7114

NZDUSD 0.7111

NZDCHF 0.6313

NZDJPY 0.7371 – 0.6313 = 0.6842 or = NZD/USD support and Target. NZD/USD price will expand or contract.

To Continue

EURNZD 0.7114 -0.6313 = 06713

NZDUSD 0.7111 – NZD/CHF = 0.6313 = 0.6712 NZD/USD support.

NZD/USD is well supported at 0.6842 and 0.6712.

FX Commentary and Vital Averages

EUR/USD, NZD/USD and USD/CAD traded a 100 pip range last week while AUD/USD roamed 200 and GBP/USD 300 pips.

Over last 3 weeks, EUR/USD, NZD/USD, AUD/USD and GBP/USD traded a 300 pip range while USD/CAD traded 400 pips.

Last week, EUR/JPY traded 100 pips, GBP/JPY traded 400, AUD/JPY 200 and both NZD/JPY and CAD/JPY traded 100 pips.

Last 3 weeks, EUR/JPY ranged 400 pips, GBP/JPY 400 pips, AUD/JPY 300 , CAD/JPY 300 and NZD/JPY 200. GBP/JPY total 400 pips traded last week.

Last week, GBP/CHF range traded 200 pips, AUD/CHF 200 and NZD/CHF 100 pip range.

Last 3 weeks, GBP/CHF range traded 400 pips, AUD/CHF 200 and NZD/CHF 100.

Last week, GBP/NZD range traded 500 pips and 200 for EUR/NZD.

Last 3 weeks, GBP/NZD range traded 700 pips and 300 for EUR/NZD.

Last week, GBP/AUD traded 600 pips, EUR/AUD 300 pips and GBP/CAD 500.

Last 3 weeks, GBP/AUD traded a 900 pips range, GBP/CAD 700 and EUR/AUD 300 pips.

GBP pairs traded the best ranges last week in relation to the last 3 weeks otherwise GBP pairs would’ve traded 1/2 the ranges.

GBP/USD dropped 300 pips from richter scale overbought while deeply oversold GBP cross pairs lack any resemblance of a clue what to do next and decided to drop into deeper oversold status.

While GBP/USD dropped 300 pips, AUD/USD failed to follow and traded 100 pips higher while EUR/USD, NZD/USD and USD/CAD remained in a 100 pips range. GBP lower and AUD/USD higher assisted GBP cross pairs lower.

The traded ranges for GBP/NZD, GBP/AUD, EUR/AUD and GBP/CHF were actually not unusual as all hit the weekly normality price and had a deep decision to rise significantly higher or drop. GBP/CAD, a severely off kilter currency pair traded to deep non normal.

NZD/USD and cross pairs are trading in tiny ranges however NZD/JPY and NZD/CHF are aligned correctly to NZD/USD. Same status for AUD/USD as cross pairs are aligned.
Overall, GBP/USD, AUD/USD and NZD/USD contain problems to 5 year averages at GBP/USD 1.3093, AUD/USD at 0.7286, NZD/USD 0.6818. EUR/JPY joins the ranks to cross 5 year averages at 124.28 and explains why EUR/JPY failed to follow GBP/JPY last week.

Break of 5 year averages and failure to follow from Cross pairs is causing many price problems to cross pairs as cross pair 5 year averages are miles away from current prices.


GBP/USD is well supported by its vital high/ low point at 1.3145 then the 5 year average at 1.3095 and many averages at 1.2900’s. The recommendation this week is deep caution to GBP/USD and / or stand clear as GBP/USD remains dead center inside wide ranges. A trade is not available.

Deep caution as well to GBP/JPY. Both GBP/USD and GBP/JPY rank last on the GBP scale. GBP/USD can trade easily to the 1.3100 break or 1.3400. Better trades exist rather than shooting dice.
GBP cross pairs GBP/NZD, GBP/CHF, GBP/CAD and GBP/AUD are deeply oversold and severely off kilter to GBP/USD and GBP/JPY. Long against caution.


AUD/USD is well supported at the 5 year average 0.7286 then the high/ low point at 0.7276. An alignment is finally reached and massively overbought AUD must decide its destiny to correct and travel higher or break 0.7200’s and travel lower. AUD/USD is aligned to its cross pairs and all sit at overbought. Far better trades this week than GBP.


NZD/USD 5 year average at 0.6818 then the high / low point at 0.6850 finally aligns NZD. At NZD/USD at 0.7000’s sits at dead neutral while cross pairs NZD/JPY and NZD//CHF are overbought.


EUR/USD approaches the 10 year average at 1.2188 and is massively overbought from lower averages at 1,1200;s to 1.1800’s. EUR/USD will eventually trade to 1.1700’s. It must trade to 1.1700’s.

EUR/JPY is the EUR/USD problem to lower EUR/USD. Lower for EUR/JPY must break 124.51, the 5 year average at 124.28 then the 10 year at 123.77. Above, EUR/JPY faces the 15 year average at 128.59. Overall 124.00’s to 128.00 and a 400 pip range.

USD/CAD higher must break 1.3063 then its 5 year average at 1.3184. Notice GBP/USD 5 year average 1.3095 and 1.3063 for USD/CAD. Notice GBP/USD 1.3145 to USD/CAD 1.3184.
Overall currency market prices are defined by GBP/USD and USD/CAD 1.3000 and 1.3100’s. USD is defined by 1.3000’s and 1.3100’s. GBP/USD and USD/CAD lower and higher by crossovers is defined by 1.3000’s and 1.3100’s.

Currency markets will continue to trade uneven prices until a resolution of 5 year averages is seen for GBP/USD, AUD/USD, NZD/USD and EUR/JPY. However AUD and NZD are beginning to normalize, EUR/JPY is supported and higher for GBP/USD will see the 1.3095 meet its vital break point at 1.3145. GBP/USD will then normalize.

GBP/CHF this week is deeply oversold while AUD/CHF is overbought and NZD/CHF fairly neutral.

Weekly Trades: EUR/USD and NZD/JPY

Not only are 18 weekly currency pairs traded week after week over many years but 18 pairs are ranked as best to least favored. This preview I’m offering is new and not yet completely validated to 18 pairs but CHF cross pairs as GBP/CHF, AUD/CHF and NZD/CHF seem to trade really well on a rotation basis every 2 weeks. Last week, CHF cross pairs ran well at +100 pips.

Entries and targets performed perfectly which means CHF pairs traded normally. USD and Non USD pairs fell far off normal. This week, CHF cross pairs are low on the rankings and USD V Non USD receive high rankings. CHF cross pairs are lower ranging while lately, USD V Non pairs are trading in wide, wide ranges.

The other concept is CHF cross pairs relation to EUR/NZD and GBP/NZD. EUR/NZD and GBP/NZD last week also received high ranking but this doesn’t happen often except for about every 2 to 3 weeks. Early assumption until I get to this concept further is CHF pairs are running wide and good along with GBP/NZD and EUR/NZD.

Markets and currency pairs seem to work on a rotation basis which wouldn’t be unusual for markets generally.

Low ranking pairs this week: AUD/CHF, NZD/CHF, EUR/NZD, GBP/CHF and GBP/NZD.

We’ll Run EUR/USD and NZD/JPY again this week. NZD/JPY closed at last week’s entry price at 73.37 and barely moved 100 pips while EUR/USD decided to travel 100 pips past entry. Beside the least favored pairs above, 13 pairs begin the week at extreme overbought and oversold levels. Entries hardly matters

Overall, JPY cross pairs are overbought and the risk of 5 year averages remain upon us.


Short Anywhere or 1.2130 and 1.2154 to target 1.1892

Long 1.1892 to target 1.1963.

Short below 1.1820 to target 1.1677


 Short 73.46 and 73.66 to target 72.29. 

long 72.29 to target 72.68.

 Short below 71.51 to target 70.33. Long 70.33 to target 71.12

Currency In Circulation, Volume, Debt

Great quote from the 1860’s. Purpose of Currency is for use to live properly, to receive and pay expenses, for correct existence. My Quote. But nobody has currency.

This is primitive yet subtract currency in circulation year to year from bonds outstanding.

Full Currency in Circulation numbers are released yearly.

Currency in Circulation as of November 2020 = 2.01 trillion or 2, 000, 000, 000, 000.

Currency in Circulation 2019 Value in Billions: 1, 800, 000.

For 2018 = 1,6000, 000

Increased every year since 1999.

Costs $800 million for total Cash operations to print, destroy old, wages, Etc.

Volume of currency Billions. 2019 = 44.9 billion, 2018 = 43.4 billion. 2020 = 2,055, 678

USD total Fixed Income Outstanding 40%. Then 2 trillion X 40% = $800,000,000,000

5 Year Averages: EUR, AUD, NZD, GBP, EUR/JPY

Following currencies broke above 5 year averages.: EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD, NZD/USD and EUR/JPY.

EUR/USD Broke its 5 year average at 1.1336. The next average to break is the 10 year at 1.2131 and 1.2169. Top of EUR/USD 20 year range is 1.2600’s. The 20 year mid point is locate at 1.1954.

EUR/USD remains richter scale overbought from averages 1.1200’s to 1.1700. Lower requires a break of 1.1781 to target 1.1400’s. Current range 1.1781 – 1.2131.
No excitement to 1.2131 as lower averages remain far more overbought on a possible break. Short is the only way for EUR/USD especially as EUR enters its seasonal downtrend beginning usually in December /January and holds until April / May when the slow uptrend begins again. Traditional big drops for EUR/USD are seen in January and most every year since 1999 introduction.

EUR/JPY is the only JPY cross pair to break its 5 year average at 124.32. Lower for EUR/JPY must break 124.32 and 123.71. Short term, EUR/JPY is deeply overbought. Medium and long term, EUR/JPY is fairly neutral. EUR/JPY next big line at the 14 year average is located at 128.63.

The 20 year range mid point is located at 126.65.
GBP/JPY 5 year average is located at 143.82 then 10 year at 148.04. GBP/JPY 143.82 Vs EUR/JPY 124.32. EUR/JPY ranges are far smaller than traditional JPY cross pair leader, GBP/JPY so EUR/JPY is viewed as EUR/USD and its short.

AUD/USD 5 year average is located 0.7285 and hasn’t moved 1 pip since weeks ago reported to 5 year averages. Lower for AUD/USD must break 0.7285 and 0.7211. This line at 0.7211 is rising fast to meet 0.7285. If 0.7211 rises above 0.7285 then possible reconsideration to targets however AUD is deeply overbought from 0.6800’s to 0.7200’s and the 20 year mid point is located at 0.7641.

NZD/USD 5 year average is located at 0.6816 and a 3 pip move since last reported to 5 year averages. Lower for NZD must break 0.6816 and 0.6793. Like AUD, 0.6793 is rising fast. Current target for 0.6816 is 0.7155. Current NZD is richter scale overbought daily and weekly. Longer term, NZD is massive overbought from 0.6500;s to 0.6700;s. The 20 year mid point range to averages is located 0.6905.

NZD/USD 20 year mid point 0.6905 Vs AUD/USD at 0.7641.

GBP/USD 5 year average is located at 1.3104. Lower for GBP/USD must break 1.3104 and 1.3116. This line at 1.3116 rose fast and now trades above the 5 year average. However 1.3116 is massive overbought and targets lower to 1.3200’s. Target at the 5 year average is located at 1.3760. The next big break for GBP/USD is located at 1.3560.
Current GBP/USD daily and weekly is also massive overbought.

GBP/USD 20 year mid point is located at 1.4310. Why high is averages still feel the effects of the brexit drop 3 years ago. Averages dropped about 1000 pips over 3 years.
GBP/AUD 5 year average is located at 1.8469 and 1.9261 for GBP/NZD. For GBP/NZD higher must break 1.8261 and 1.9316. Current GBP/NZD is massive oversold and explains NZD/USD deeply overbought.

EUR/AUD higher must break 1.6341 and a break will force AUD/USD Lower to break its 5 year average at 0.7285. Then 0.7211.

Despite 5 year average breaks, the cross pairs fail to follow.

Beginning week mentioned to much wider ranges for this week and we’ve seen much wider trading ranges.

Weekly Trades: EUR/USD and NZD/JPY

Non USD currency pairs, EUR/USD, NZD/USD and AUD/USD begin the week in deep overbought while USD pairs USD/CAD and USD/CHF closed at severe oversold. USD/CHF is deeply oversold short, medium and long term. Oversold from its high/low break point at 0.9170, the 10 year average at 0.9519 and the 5 year average at 0.9780. The 10 year average crossed below the 5 year in July and the 4 month USD/CHF downtrend began to current 0.9042.

USD/CHF oversold contrasts to fairly mild USD/CAD oversold and USD/JPY as usual lacks any resemblance to a directional clue. USD/JPY price is surrounded by many averages and forces no significant movement. Higher USD/JPY must break 105.04 and a line that hasn’t moved in many weeks. Overall, the 5 year average is located at 109.00’s while 102.00’s is solid at the 10 and 14 year averages.

Oversold USD/CHF then forces lower and deeply oversold to cross pairs arranged as Other Pair/CHF. GBP/CHF, AUD/CHF, NZD/CHF and CAD/CHF ranges over many weeks severely compressed. NZD/CHF this week however woke up from its range compression and should see great moves and the only pair in the CHF cross pair universe. Typical to stand clear of EUR/CHF. Once a truly great and trade able currency but now not worth any trouble.

NZD/USD begins the week in deep overbought and NZD cross pairs are in agreement. As bottom pair and moves higher over last weeks forced EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD higher. NZD/USD broke its significant averages at 0.6700;s then the 5 year at 0.6800’s and traveled to 0.7000’s.

Concerning aspect overall is GBP/USD, AUD/USD and NZD/USD break of 5 year averages at GBP 1.3100’s, AUD 0.7285 and 0.6800;s for NZD.

NZD/USD’s break higher forced EUR/NZD and GBP/NZD into massive oversold. AUD/USD’s break forced EUR/AUD and GBP/AUD into massive oversold. AUD/USD is held by 0.7285 and 0.7196 and breaks required to move lower.

GBPUSD’s break allowed a wide trading range between GBP/CHF and GBP/JPY. GBP/USD for the week is mild overbought, GBP/JPY deep overbought and GBP/CHF sits idle. GBP/CHF and GBP/JPY are directional leaders to GBP/USD instead of normal GBP/USD leadership.

GBP/USD averages at 1.2800’s mentioned 2 weeks ago is now solid at 1.2900’s, a high/low break point at 1.3093 and 5 year average at 1.3100’s.

While GBP/USD, AUD and NZD broke 5 year averages, cross pairs failed to follow and no threats exists for cross pair break of 5 year averages.

For EUR/USD 3 lines hold EUR higher 1.1700’s, 1.1400’s and deep overbought 1.1300’s at the 5 year average. EUR/USD cannot sustain higher much longer and longs aren’t recommended.

Interesting to currency markets is battle lines are clearly drawn and distinguished across all currency pairs. GBP/USD, AUD/USD and NZD/USD break of 5 year averages forced non normalcy to wide rangers. Since cross pairs fail to follow, I’m looking at 5 year averages as just another support point because the 5 year lines aren’t moving nor are cross pairs.

Most interesting to this week is deep range expansion across a vast majority of the 18 currency pairs traded every week and includes wide rangers GBP/NZD, EUR/NZD, GBP/AUD and EUR/AUD. Overbought JPY cross pairs and lower will force lower to EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD and NZD/USD.


Short 1.1999 and 1.2019 to target 1.1815
Short 1.1754 to target 1.1632
Long 1.1632 to target 1.1713
long 1.1819 to target 1.1876.

Short below 71.04 to target 70.34

When the RBA dropped OCR to 0.10, RBNZ regained top interest rate position throughout all central banks at OCR 0.25. AUD/JPY lost its shine as range and risk reversal leader in favor of NZD/JPY as top JPY cross pair. Reigns supreme above GBP/JPY.

DAX Next 24 Hours

A few interest rate experiments to trade DAX for the next 24 hours.

Today’s Range open 13,350.00 bottomed 13,239.31 then bolted to 13,307.13 and closed at 13,289.30. I see why trade indices. Open to close 60.7 points. Then 13,239.31 to 13,307.13 =67 points. We’re dealing with 60 ish pip ranges and not bad.

USD interest rates says this

Long Bottom. 13,223.35 to target 13,289.80 and 13294.78.

Then short 13294.78 to target 13259.07.

Europe Interest Rates

Bottom 13,215.36. an 8 point difference to USD.

Same Target 13289.80 then 13,304.18.

To target must break 13256.57, 13272.57, 13,280.57

DAX big numbers but trade reciprocals then close located at 0.00008.

Tomorrow won’t be an experiment. No difference between Europe and USD interest rates to predict and trade DAX over 24 hours.

Weekly Trade Criteria, Same and Opposite Currencies

Same Currency Pairs and same trades: EUR/USD and EUR/JPY, GBP/USD and GBP/JPY, AUD/USD and AUD/JPY, NZD/USD and NZD/JPY. For JPY was designed as attachment pairs to main USD Vs Non USD for viability rather than a range issue.

Normally USD/JPY and CHF/JPY are same pairs and same trades however not running together currently nor has been running correctly for months. Could be Correlation issue but a Correlation is unitless as its a number that floats positive and negative between currency prices. Underlying issue to correlations is difference between most vital moving averages. One pair may trade above while another trades below or one price may be correct but another not correct yet trade above or below averages.

An investigation to averages will reveal the answer.


One problem to any currency pair in the 3 pair mix above then price problems will be seen.

Same Pairs: EUR/NZD, GBP/NZD Vs EUR/AUD and GBP/AUD. For EUR/NZD and GBP/NZD connects high range vs low range currencies as EUR/USD and NZD/USD and GBP/USD and NZD/USD. GBP/NZD and EUR/NZD are widest range currency pairs among 28. Next set to wide ranges is EUR/AUD and GBP/AUD.

AUD/NZD is pretty much the same pair and same trade as AUD/CAD for AUD/NZD price is the same as AUD/CAD only opposite.

EUR/CAD, GBP/CAD, AUD/CAD and NZD/CAD may or may not add to the above 3 currency pair same trade mix above. Currently, all are not running correctly.
Same trades for the universe of 4 is when all run perfectly together.

Opposite: USD/CAD and CAD/JPY. Same trades: USD/CAD, USD/JPY, USD/CHF.

Problem Pair criteria: Inner price statistics. Range issues. Low range is problem. Noise ratio Vs Coefficient variation. GBP/CAD problem for months. Noise ratio current 296.96 vs variation 0.3367. Or better stated price Signal to price Noise. Big problem to GBP/CAD and others. If 1 category is affected then all are problems. EUR/CAD and GBP/CAD are problems currently.

Problem pairs are subject to price swings and don’t follow perfectly price paths. Old days of trading this point was far more significant than today as ranges for all currency pairs died.

Problem pairs: Trading higher into overbought or lower into oversold. GBP/CAD meets all criteria for many months and EUR/CAD just entered the mix.
Never trade problem pairs.

Weekly Trade criteria: Price Location. Price Location to moving averages. Entries are secondary to targets. Entry to target question: Easy trade, how many pips, is universe operating correctly. Overbought Vs oversold however this point is fairly mute in this new day of trading. Ranges.

GBP/USD Vs EUR/USD Weekly Trade

Why GBP is the skitzo currency among all 24 pairs must compare to EUR/USD.

EUR/USD weekly short point was 1.1893. EUR/USD Bounced from 1.1815 but note EUR/USD never touched the weekly short point at 1.1893. Twice EUR/USD hit 1.1890 then dropped but never hit nor surpassed 1.1893. EUR/USD hot 1.1881 then dropped. This is a typical short or long trade for all currency pairs except GBP. The short or long weekly point never again touches during the week. Three shorts existed for a few pips from 1,1881 and twice at 1.1890.

GBP/USD on the other side of the equation offered 77 pips then bounced but bounced to 1.3300’s and far surpassed our weekly short points at 1.3222 and 1.3243. GBP/USD and cross pairs are the only currencies to surpass a weekly long or short point. Doesn’t happen often but it happens and this is what makes GBP a skitzo currency and sometimes dangerous.

Here’s the weekly points to 1.3031 target. Must cross 1.3201, 1.3180, 1.3159, 1.3138. GBP/USD dead stopped at 1.3165 then bounced.

Points below and solid on Monday was the 5 year average at 1.3120 then 1.3167 and the weekly break point at 1.2996. GBP/USD broke 1.3167 and dead stopped 2 pips below at 1.3165. Pretty nasty fake out.

So despite higher to 1.3300’s, GBP traded to 1.3194 lows again.

Currency Pairs and 5 Year Averages

Current 5 year averages is where all trading takes place. Its an unhealthy situation as currency prices lack continuity, lack USD Vs NON and cross pair agreement.

EUR/USD 5 year 1.1325 and 10 year 1.2139 and EUR/USD trades above 5 year
EUR/JPY 5 year 124.39 and 10 = 123.67 and currently trades above 123.67

USD/CAD 5 year 1.3191, trades below
CAD/JPY 5 year 83.36, trades below
CAD/CHF 5 year 0.7426, trades below


USD/JPY 5 year 109.88, 10 year 102.80
USD/CHF 10 year 0.9522 and 5 year 0.9789, trades below
CHF/JPY 5 year 112.27, trades above

USD/JPY and CHF/JPY are exact same pairs and an 800 ish pip separation. The relationship isn’t correct. Either CHF/JPY trades lower or USD/JPY must trade higher.

Break it down, Break it down

JPY Cross Pairs

GBP/JPY 5 year 144.26, trades below
AUD/JPY 5 year 80.04, trades below
NZD/JPY 5 year 74.83, trades below
CAD/JPY Trades below
EUR/JPY No clue


EUR/USD above 5 year
GBP/USD above 5 year
AUD/USD above
NZD/USD above

JPY cross pairs to trade correct must trade in sync to Non USD pairs. Note GBP/USD above and GBP/JPY below. Same for AUD/USD and AUD/JPY, NZD/USD and NZD/JPY. Unhealthy situation here.

Result to JPY cross pairs was range compression over last 4 weeks. Either JPY cross pairs trade miles higher or EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD and NZD/USD must trade miles lower.

We have agreement yet last 4 weeks we’ve seen range compression and off kilter to EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD and NZD/USD. A problem category

Other Pair/ CAD

EUR/CAD above
GBP/CAD below
AUD/CAD below with caution
NZD/CAD below with caution

EUR/CAD and GBP/CAD are problem currencies and suffered range compression over last 4 weeks. Suffers from range compression today. GBP.CAD and EUR/CAD lacj agreement to EUR/USD and GBP/USD while NZD/CAD and AUD/CAD are trying to understand their proper position.

GBP/NZD 1.9300, trades below
EUR/NZD 5 year 1.6657, 14 year 1.7513

GBP/NZD is the better pair to trade yet GBP/NZD lacks agreement to GBP/USD and NZD/USD. Same situation for EUR/NZD. Both range compression last 4 weeks. EUR/NZD was hit hardest.

What is traded today is dangerous and unhealthy markets not only due to 5 year averages but cross pairs lack uniformity. We require either a big move to rightsize or we live in slow grinds, no range and unhealthy markets.

Dear all, new contact

Unless I figure how to operate microsoft e mail on my old blog.

I tell you all, between this computer that is becoming harder and harder to operate and the gagillions of crooked trade services operating these days, I’m slowly being blocked out of contention. Every body seems to have something to sell these days and they can operate this computer far better than me. Que sera sera as they say.

Subscribers please send an e mail to receive daily trades this evening

Much easier to operate

Missed Entries and Targets

Here’s the question. Are USD and Non USD currencies in sync to cross pairs in their universe. The answer depends to the time period and prices. As we’ve seen over the past 4 and 5 weeks, USD Vs Non were off kilter to cross pairs. Now cross pairs are in sync again.

But does this situation mean compatibility remains. Maybe.

In other market times, cross pairs are the drivers to USD and NON

From February 2019 to July and the last time I fully recorded deeply 10 and 12 weekly trades, USD Vs Non and Cross pairs were perfectly in compliance. Trade entries and targets were perfect over the 5 months and many pips were earned.

To the question of trades going off course, important is a 2019 week when prices and trades went haywire was about once or twice every few months but the situation rectified quickly so the next week was back to normal. This must assume currency markets and prices were properly aligned. Ranges in 2019 were fairly wide so it was easier for prices to correct.

The vast majority of our weeks today remain good to entries, targets and profits. But I’ve seen a few extra weeks when prices went off course which means today didn’t match to the consistency of 2019 to once or twice every few months. Ranges today are far less than in 2019. Which hold the answer to off course predictability. Range compression to cross pairs over the past 4 weeks or so informed crazy prices were coming. And only cross pairs were affected and not USD Vs Non USD.

As currency pairs today are pretty much in accordance from USD to Non and cross pairs, its imperative to monitor ranges to determine if USD Vs Non will dominate cross pairs, or cross pairs dominate USD V Non or do USD Vs Non hold its current perfect balance to cross pairs.

The proper way to currency markets is USD V Non hold consistency to cross pair alignments. Off kilter occurs when the balance is skewed to USD V Non and cross pairs.
