FX Weekly: CHF Cross Pairs Misaligned, EUR/USD Weekly Trade

The most interesting currency market development this week is the positions of CHF cross pairs as GBP/CHF, EUR/CHF, AUD/CHF, NZD/CHF. Mark this extraordinary situation under the many facets and nuances of the currency price and ascertained by the eyeball of prices to true observers.

To use GBP/USD and GBP/CHF as the examples. GBP/USD Thursday trade to highs at 1.1379 and GBP/CHF to 1.1355. GBP/USD corrected lower as exchange rates traded below GBP/CHF.

GBP’s universe of exchange rates: GBP/CHF, GBP/USD, GBP/JPY, GBP/CAD, GBP/AUD, GBP/NZD. I call this the hierarchy of exchange rates.

The correct positions and purpose of CHF cross pairs is to trade a lower exchange rate than the anchor currencies. Each currency in the universe is allowed a respective range to prevent not only exchange rate crossovers but to ensure anchor currencies don’t trade to wild extremes.

The further purpose is to maintain currency market price uniformity within the universe and to associated currencies. GBP/USD Friday traded to 1.1151 lows while GBP/CHF dead stopped at 1.1211.

If GBP/CHF was correct with an exchange rate below GBP/USD then GBP/USD would’ve never traded to such low depths. GBP/CHF would’ve stopped GBP/USD’s slide lower and GBP/USD to not violate GBP/CHF allotted range space.

As associated currencies, GBP/CHF is the leader currency to CHF cross pairs due to widest ranges. GBP/CHF dead stop at 1.1211 allowed all CHF cross pairs to dead stop but also to allow all anchor pairs mix match to trade below CHF cross pairs.

CAD/CHF is correct at 0.7246 or 1.3800 and trades below USD/CAD.

Note GBP/CAD at the 1.5509 open to the GBP universe. Average all GBP exchange rates and the answer is always GBP/CAD. GBP/CAD owns its space as middle and neutral currency between GBP/CHF, GBP/USD, GBP/JPY Vs GBP/AUD and GBP/NZD and never to violate another GBP currency space.

    The Week

The CHF week begins as GBP/CHF 1.1232 Vs GBP/USD 1.1176. AUD/CHF 0.6238 Vs AUD/USD 0.6198, NZD/CHF 0.5592 Vs NZD/USD 0.5558, EUR/CHF 0.9775 Vs EUR/USD 0.9717.

The week contains 2 choices, GBP/USD trades higher than GBP/CHF or GBP/CHF trades lower than GBP/USD. The deciding factor is 1.1204. Correct is GBP/USD to trade at minimum 1.1079 and GBP/CHF to trade 1.0996. GBP/CHF must cross GBP/USD.

EUR/USD Weekly Trade

Last week’s EUR/USD 2nd leg as short 0.9829 to target 0.9758 achieved 0.9808 to 0.9758 or +50 pips while initial longs achieved +126 pips. Total +176 pips on EUR/USD 178 pip weekly range.

EUR/USD Long 0.9665 and 0.9661 to target 0.9772. Then Short 0.9772 to target 0.9710.
To follow the trade or take profit as desired, here’s major levels: 0.9691, 0.9708, 0.9725, 0.9742, 0.9759, 0.9776, 0.9793.

Short ranges this week as noted by EUR/USD to target at every 17 pips. The CHF cross pair alignments must rectify to allow EUR/USD and anchor pairs wider trade ranges.

The easy trades this week are short GBP/NZD, EUR/NZD, GBP/AUD, EUR/AUD.

GBP/JPY and EUR/JPY begin the week in the overbought stratosphere.

USD/CAD, USD/JPY and USD/CHF begin the week in the overbought extremes.

AUD/USD is the better trade to NZD/USD. Not only is AUD/USD massively oversold but AUD oversold matches to AUD/CHF and AUD/CAD while nothing special exists to AUD/JPY except to follow GBP/JPY and EUR/JPY lower.

Watch EUR/GBP 0.8659.

As currency markets begin the week in deep oversold and overbought, movements align as great profit opportunities.

FX Weekly

As reported Friday, FX begins and will end the week as the exact same as last week. NZD/USD and AUD/USD starts the week deeply oversold. NZD and AUD cross pairs trade in compliance to oversold NZD/USD and AUD/USD. Weekly NZD/USD targets 0.5744 on a break of 0.5699.

AUD/USD and NZD/USD long assistance is derived from deeply overbought EUR/NZD, GBP/NZD and EUR/AUD. Best profit trades for the week for 200 pips each are EUR/NZD, GBP/NZD and EUR/AUD. GBP/AUD will follow but caution to 1.7288 as further shorts are dependent on a break lower. All contain a short only strategy for the week.

EUR/USD and GBP/USD begins the week in neutrality and the same neutral story as last week. Neutral references the price location. Price location is determined by averages. Averages are dependent to averages moving higher or lower in relation to the traded price.

An expansion or contraction to averages determines the range of prices. An expansion to averages means the price remains in the same location under wider ranges while a contraction refers to trades to break ranges yet trade in a higher or lower location.

EUR/USD began last week at 147 pip range. The actual range traded 274 pips from 0.9999 to 0.9725 or 2 X 147. EUR/USD long and short profits last week 319 pips.

Overall profit achieved higher than the actual range which means every traded pip was profit but also, EUR/USD required a range break to achieve targets.

EUR/USD 2 weeks ago and 319 pip range to 148 pip profit as ranges expanded to miss extra profit pips above and slight miss to entry below.

Overall ranges decide questions to neutral, oversold and overbought.


DXY Monday targets 113.12 and 113.53 for the week. Targets higher for future weeks is derived from counting 70 pips from 113.53 as 114.23, 114.93, and 115.63.

EUR/USD as DXY perfect opposite targets weekly 0.9657. Lower targets for future weeks is derived by counting every 69 pips from 0.9657 as 0.9588, 0.9520 and 0.9451.

DXY at the 112.75 weekly open trades 1600 pips above the 50 year average at 96.00 while EUR/USD trades 1600 pips below the 5 year average at 1.1400’s.

DXY economic news will eventually trade against rate rises and DXY will drop. As perfect opposite EUR/USD and Europe economic news will strengthen and EUR/USD will rise. Currently, both Europe and the United States run trade deficits at -42 billion and -62 billion.

EUR/USD Weekly Trade

EUR/USD range this week trades 142 pips from 0.9758 to 0.9616.
Long 0.9687 and 0.9678 to target 0.9829. Short 0.9829 to target 0.9758. The long trade proposes 151 pips from 0.9678.

FX Next Week

FX next week resembles set ups from last week. AUD/USD and AUD/CHF begin the week deeply oversold to match massive oversold NZD/USD and NZD/CHF. The wildcard is neutrality to EUR/USD and GBP/USD.

EUR/USD close in the vicinity of 0.9761 offers good shorts to target easily 0.9904. Below 0.9761 proposes the same longs only for more profit pips.

GBP/USD close at 1.1105 offers a reasonable entry to target 1.1300’s. GBP/CHF close at 1.0900’s ensures GBP/USD target to 1.1300’s as GBP/CHF and CHF performs market function as support currencies.

USD/CAD and USD/CHF begin the week overbought. Higher today based on NFP ensures more profit pips for shorts. DXY traded 250 pips this week to Comatose USD/JPY at 120.

DXY next target above for next week is located at 113.16 then the big weekly short. USD/JPY offers 144.99 to 147.00’s next week or shorts to 142.00. Against current overbought DXY then USD/JPY short is the best trade to also match overbought counterparts USD/CAD and USD/CHF.

USD/CAD is the better profit trade for next week particularly as USD/CAD approaches 1.4600 highs last seen in 2020, 2016 and 2003.

GBP/JPY 161.57 decides its fate for next week. Required for GBP/JPY is to gain traction today from 161.57 or GBP/JPY relegates to last position in the GBP trade rankings.
AUD/JPY and NZD/JPY oversold and long for next week is the same story as last week. EUR/JPY and CAD/JPY trade above 139.71 and 104.90.

Overall, JPY cross pairs lack uniformity as leader GBP/JPY offers no direction.
EUR/NZD and GBP/NZD trade massive overbought and offers easy shorts for next week. Same story existed this week. EUR/NZD is the preferred trade.

Massive overbought EUR/AUD offers easy shorts for next week while GBP/AUD trades fairly neutral. EUR/AUD is not only the better trade but becomes the leader currency to GBP/AUD.

Unless EUR/CAD and GBP/CAD gain significant movements today then nothing special exists to trades for next week. GBP/CAD trades below 1.5414 while EUR/CAD trades above 1.3347. AUD/CAD trades massive oversold and may become the better trade for next week to match oversold AUD/USD and AUD/CHF.

Overall, same wide range movements are expected next week as currency pairs lack uniformity and must realign.

DXY weekly traded 179 pips vs SPX 184. SPX for the week trades in unison to DXY.
No winner emerged in the Brazillian elections Sunday as a runoff is scheduled for October 30 and another Sunday of voting.

USD/BRL target at 5.2683 reached destination Monday from severe overbought at 5.4235 and +1500 pips.

USD/BRL higher must break 5.2192 and targets easily 5.2665 on a long only strategy from current oversold.

EUR/USD at current 0.9924 approaches vital 1.0048 to trade substantially higher and target 1.0123 and 1.0198 easily. EUR/USD 1.0048 is a huge break. The line is currently rising which says ranges may open wide but 1.0048 won’t break easily.

GBP/USD must break 1.1602 to trade higher and weekly highs traded to 1.1493. The short target is located at 1.1070 on a break of 1.1336.

Vast majority of trading activity this week was contained between GBP/USD and EUR/USD and cross pairs. EUR/USD and GBP/USD began the week at dead neutral to oversold AUD/USD and NZD/USD. EUR/USD and GBP/USD movements were based on proper alignments to AUD and NZD.

USD/JPY traded 179 pips this week to match DXY. USD/JPY is again trading perfectly to DXY.

Japan’s Ministry of Finance released its monthly Intervention data as right about $14 million was spent to drop USD/JPY 500 pips and JPY/USD to trade higher by 250 pips. The $14 million translates as Yen 2,838.2 billion.

Best trades to continue the week are EUR/NZD, EUR/AUD, GBP/AUD and GBP/JPY. Recall GBP/JPY ranges from 148.00’s to 168.00’s. GBP/JPY broke the 5 year average in 2019 to trade 3 years later at 168.00’s in March 2022. The range from 148 to 168 remains in effect until a break is seen and has held for 3 years.

GBP/JPY trades massive overbought and targets easily 163.21 then 162.54.

EUR/NZD, EUR/AUD and GBP/AUD trade massive overbought and easy money shorts over next days. Note exchange rate numbers EUR/NZD 1.7300’s VS GBP/AUD at 1.7600’s. Same currencies as both achieved a marriage for double trades.

NZD/USD and AUD/USD traded higher to relieve deep oversold then sat idle to allow GBP/USD, EUR/USD and cross pairs to align again to AUD/USD and NZD/USD.

WTI and Brent traded 3.56 points yesterday and 3.72 points for the week. Nothing extraordinary to WTI or Brent as both trade perfectly normal.

XAU/USD upside target today 1734 then short to 1690.61.

FX Weekly: DXY, EUR/USD and EUR Cross Pairs

DXY continues to dictate currency and all market prices. The rise to 114.00’s offers vital average supports every 100 pips from 113.00 to 89.00’s. DXY closed at 112.17 and trades between 113.15 above and 112.10 below. Ranges trade roughly 100 pip intervals from the vital average to 100 pip targets above.

Next targets above are located at 115.50, 116.27, 117.04, 117.81 or every 77 pips.

Downside targets begin at 110.90, 110.13, 109.36, 108.60 or every 77 pips.

Downside targets assume an average break then trade between 2 most vital averages.
DXY trades 57 pips per day. DXY at 57 pips per day has been a constant within DXY’s history since at least 2016. The Fed may raise or lower interest rates to any desired level and DXY will remain constant at 57 pips per day. At 57 pips per day is enough to hold Commodities and SPX from trading to massively exorbitant levels.

The range reported to SPX performs exactly as DXY dictates to points per day. Gold best days trade 20 and 30 points and 50 to 80 point weeks while WTI and Brent trades its best weeks at 6 and 8 point ranges and 2 to 4 point days.

Not constant for Fed interest rate changes are every currency, stock market index and associated financial instrument on the planet as all must massively adjust pips per day and weekly ranges.

GBP/USD at 56 pips per day is the best currency to hold constant to DXY, followed by EUR/USD at 49 while AUD/USD at 32 and NZD/USD at 28 suffer the effects to allowable pip movements.

The overall constant to currencies and markets is an award winning simple math and Statistics book never written.

Overall markets are dependent on DXY for every move.

The Week

USD/CAD and USD/CHF begin the week overbought while USD/JPY trades in ranges as DXY from 144.36 to 147.10.

Currency markets problem this week is lack of uniformity among anchor and cross pairs.

AUD/USD and NZD/USD trade deeply oversold to fairly neutral EUR/USD and GBP/USD.

EUR/CAD trades deeply overbought to neutral GBP/CAD and oversold AUD/CAD and NZD/CAD.

EUR/JPY trades deep overbought to massively oversold NZD/JPY, Neutral CAD/JPY, and Neutral AUD/JPY. Nothing special exists to GBP/JPY however watch 160.63 break lower to take down all JPY cross pairs.

AUD/CHF, CAD/CHF and NZD/CHF trade oversold to neutral EUR/CHF and GBP/CHF.
Overbought EUR/AUD to neutral GBP/AUD.

GBP/NZD and EUR/NZD aligned as both overbought.

As GBP/USD and GBP cross pairs begin the week at neutral, EUR/USD and EUR cross pairs must lead the way to all categories of cross pairs.


EUR/USD last week achieved 0.9782 target. This week’s trade runs as: Long 0.9749 and 0.9744 to target 0.9979. Then short 0.9979 to target 0.9886. Higher for EUR/USD must break 1.0057

Trade Rankings


Least favored JPY cross pair is CAD/JPY then AUD/JPY. GBP/USD shorts are favored as well as GBP cross pairs however with deep caution.

FX Next Week and USD/BRL

EUR/USD target this week at 0.9782 traded to 0.9750. EUR/USD must break 0.9773 to target 0.9782. Friday’s close just below 0.9773 targets next week’s range from 0.9773 – 0.9928. Big break for higher is located at 1.0082 to target easily 1.0159.

EUR/USD 1.0082 derives from a significant 78 pip drop from 1.0160 at week’s beginning.

Massive overbought USD/CHF joins overbought counterparts, USD/CAD and USD/JPY. USD/CHF targets next week 0.9780 then 0.9756. USD/CHF runs about 100 pip difference from last week’s 0.9685. USD/CHF must break 0.9828 to target 0.9780 then 0.9756.

DXY at 114.75 highs this week rose from 112.54 to travel another 121 pips and to drive currency and all market prices. DXY next week ranges from 115.30 to low 112.00’s and no changes to ranges from past months.

DXY at 200 ish pip ranges offers USD and non USD currencies 200 to 250 pip weeks. EUR/USD for example traded 218 pips this week, USD/CAD 269 and USD/JPY at 172.

The overall trade strategy remains long EUR/USD and non USD and short USD to USD/JPY, USD/CHF and USD/CAD. Strategies were imposed and viable as best approach due to massive overbought DXY and trading to exorbitant levels.

Weekly trades normally contain multiple shorts and longs but DXY at 114 offers to wide to divergence to short EUR/USD and Non USD. The only trade and direction for EUR, GBP, AUD and NZD is up and much higher. Upon normalization, multiple longs and shorts begin again.

GBP/USD, GBP/CHF and GBP/JPY contain a long way to travel to target 1.1089, 1.0830 and 158.00’s. GBP and cross pairs are best profit trades next week and beats EUR/USD.

GBP/NZD for higher targets above 1.9166, trades below and remains deeply divergent to massive overbought EUR/NZD. GBP/NZD and 1.9166 decides as EUR/NZD trades miles above vital 1.6602. Divergence could last another few weeks easily. Best trade is EUR/NZD as short strategy.

GBP/AUD trades oversold to overbought EUR/AUD. EUR/AUD traded 280 pip higher this week to 1.5002 from 1.4723 or roughly 70 pips per day. EUR/AUD 1.4841 ends the divergence to GP/AUD as GBP/AUD trades below 1.7132.

AUD/USD and NZD/USD at deep oversold targets easily 0.6600’s and NZD 0.5800’s. AUD/CHF, NZD/CHF, EUR/CHF and GBP/CHF offers additional longs as complement trades and companion currencies to anchor pairs.

USD/JPY maintained 143.00’s to 146.00’s this week and offers shorter 200 pip ranges next week from 144.00’s to 146.00’s. USD/JPY trades and tracks perfectly to DXY.

GBP/JPY higher must break 160.00’s and trades deeply oversold. Higher for AUD/JPY and NZD/JPY must break 93.56 and 83.99. EUR/JPY and CAD/JPY trade above 139.42 and 105.01.

Note the wide variance to EUR/NZD Vs GBP/NZD, JPY cross pairs, EUR/AUD Vs GBP/AUD. DXY is the problem to cause market abnormalities due to the wide divide from overbought USD and oversold NON USD.

Currency cross pairs rectify to trade consistent when DXY trades lower and compresses the wide USD division.

Best trades over next few weeks are the majors as EUR/USD, GBP, AUD, NZD and USD/CAD, USD/JPY.

Brazil Elections and USD/BRL

Brazil’s President Bolsonaro is up for reelection this Sunday against far left globalist and former president Sa Silva. USD/BRL at 5.37 63 trades massive overbought as all EM currencies as USD/EM. USD/BRL targets 5.2682 easily and short rally trade strategy.

SPX: Short and Long Term Averages

SPX trades between 2 vital averages at 3774.69 to 3534.40.

Below 3534.40 targets the 5 year average at 3367.25 then 3193.52. Above 3774.69 confronts 4121.26 and 4316.71 then on the way to 4511.52 and 4598.46. At 4500’s is top and maximum top range.

Averages at 4121.26 and 4316.71 trade deep oversold Vs slight overbought at the 10 year average at 2676.55. Oversold short averages and overbought long term forces SPX into range trades.

Massive hurdles exist at 3774.69, 3731.00, 3716.97, 3822.61 and 3931.81. Then 4034.96, 4053.10 and 4121.26 at the average.

Shortest range is located from 3622.93 to 3716.97 and 3731.00, 3822.61.

Longer term range 4316.71 to the 5 year average 3367.25. Nothing exists to trade long term targets as accomplished in many previous SPX posts.

SPX within ranges translates to all stock market indices as all are members of the same asset class and all trade in unison to each other. Stock index averages are slow movers and don’t change fast or very much over time.

SPX overall trades 200 point weeks over past months. Last week SPX traded 259 points and 283 for the previous week. Current 200 point weeks factors to 40 and 50 point trade days.

The driver to SPX is DXY as DXY trades wider ranges than SPX and this is the correct manner of trade for SPX to underperform DXY.

FX Weekly: Short USD, Long EUR/USD

Overall drivers to currency markets are anchor pairs as well as 5, 10 year and longer term averages. On big trade days such as CPI and Fed interest rate releases, the anchor currencies are first to respond and easily outperform cross pairs. Cross pairs are not only secondary to responses but the trade reaction is not seen sometimes until the 2nd day of the release. The last CPI release was the perfect example.

On big trade days, the best pairs to trade for most profit are EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD, NZD/USD Vs USD/CAD and USD/JPY. Overall best are EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/JPY and USD/CAD. Preeminent cross pair trades are JPY as elite to most pip moves.

EUR/USD and GBP/USD as wider ranges to AUD/USD and NZD/USD dictate pip movements. EUR/USD and GBP/USD trade more pips per trade day than AUD/USD and NZD/USD. For GBP/USD Vs USD/CAD is a 50/ 50 proposition.

Certain days GBP/USD trades more pips than USD/CAD while other days, USD/CAD leads the way to most pips. On rare days, each trades the exact same amount of pips or in extremely close proximity.

Currencies trading normally over past months as follows: EUR/AUD, EUR/JPY, EUR/NZD, GBP/AUD, EUR/CAD and USD/CAD. Trading normally to daily trades in terms of entries and targets traded perfectly and roughly 100 pip days. GBP/AUD’s 400 pip drop on Friday eliminates normality.

5 Year Averages

DXY trades 1800 pips above its 5 year average and 1700 pips from the 50 year monthly average while USD/JPY trades 3100 pips from its 5 year average at 111.85.

USD/CAD trades 300 pips from its 5 year average at 1.2900’s and 1100 pips from the 10 year at 1.2400’s. EUR/USD trades 1600 pips from its 5 year average at 1.1400, GBP/USD 2200 pips from 1.3100, AUD/USD 700 pips from 0.7200’s and NZD/USD 1000 pips from 0.6700’s.

EUR/USD from March 1985 lows and monthly averages at 0.6500’s to 1.5700 highs in July 2008 contains a mid point at 1.1152.

The week

Trades this week are predominately one way as USD shorts to USD/CAD and USD/JPY while long GBP/USD, EUR/USD, AUD/UD and NZD/USD. Targets for EUR, GBP. AUD and NZD leave all currencies in deeply oversold territory so no shorts are possible.

Trade Rankings



Massive overbought USD/CHF levels on the way down: 0.9779, 0.9751, 0.9723 and 0.9695 target.

EUR/USD Weekly Trade

Long 0.9638 and 0.9634 to target 0.9782. No short is possible as continuation trades.
JPY Cross Pairs

NZD/JPY and GBP/JPY earn rankings as most oversold. Higher for GBP/JPY must break 162.00’s. GBP/JPY trade to 160.00’s and 161/;s normalizes current price from 155.00’s.
CAD/JPY is least favored then AUD/JPY and EUR/JPY.

USD/JPY weekly range trades in wide intervals from 143.00 to 146.00’s.


Massive divergence remains yet widened from last week as EUR/NZD trades massive overbought against its vital point at 1.6500’s while GBP/NZD trades severely oversold and big break for higher at 1.9200’s.

May take weeks for EUR/NZD and GBP/NZD to align properly.


EUR/AUD trades just below vital 1.4831 vs deeply oversold GBP/AUD at 1.7200’s.
CHF Cross Pairs

CHF cross pairs all align as deep oversold and ready to travel higher. GBP/CHF and EUR/CHf are first priority then NZD/CHF, AUD/CHF and CAD/CHF.


USD/CAD not only trades overbought but 5, 10 and 14 year averages achieved targets at 1.3588, 1.3400 and 1.3200’s. Good target for the week is 1.3399 and on the way to 1.3200’s. USD/CAD short is the only trade available.

CAD Cross Pairs

Best trades long: GBP/CAD, NZD/CAD and AUD/CAD. Nothing exciting to EUR/CAD this week.


Both categories trade oversold as NZD/USD and AUD/USD and cross pairs. AUD/NZD trades overbought and targets 1.1284.

FX Next Week

DXY broke the 110.78 last high to trade 111.83 and continues the rampage far above 40 and 50 year monthly averages. This is an extraordinary event. DXY’s fall will be more extraordinary.

EUR/USD as written achieved 1.0050 from 0.9965 and +85 pips while shorts completed at 1.0028. Total 107 pips done before the Fed Decision.

EUR/USD ranges for next week: 0.9926 to 0.9801. Big break for higher now 1.0179.

USD/JPY as written for this week: USD/JPY maintains 142.69 to 145.47 in massive ranges. Target for the week is 141.00’s. USD/JPY was headed to 141.00’s regardless of the Fed, intervention and whatever hot air is wasted to outside market events.

USDJPY 145.83 – 140.64 or 519 pips. JPYUSD 0.0068572 – 0.0071102 or 253 pips While USD/JPY dropped 519 pips, JPY/USD rose 253 pips.

This is what separates JPY from remainder currencies. USDJPY moves 2 X to JPYUSD while no other reciprocal arrangement does this.

Bloomberg reports USD/JPY rose 20% this year. All it takes is 15% within 1 year for Treasury to declare Currency Manipulation. USD/JPY’s move avoided declaration.

USD/JPY’s drop lower was a correction from overbought until 137.85 breaks lower. USD/JPY is now oversold and normal is located at 143.36.

Massive oversold GBP/JPY must break 162.81 to travel higher, EUR/JPY 140.04, AUD/JPY 94.47, NZD/JPY 84.73, CAD/JPY 105.34 and CHF/JPY 143.13.


Inflation rates achieved 10% in 1979 and 14% in 1980 to Fed Funds at 8% in 1979. By January 1981, Fed Funds rose to `19% and Inflation dropped to 11% from 14% highs. Not until January 1983 did Inflation achieve 3.8% and Fed Funds at 8%. Took Volker 3 years to drop Inflation to low levels on a massive Fe Funds rate rise.

While Volker and 1979 is today’s benchmark model, Inflation in 1974 achieved highs from 9% to 12% while Fed Funds rose to 12.92% or almost 13%. Only examples to Inflation years at 8% and above are found in 1951, 1947, 1943 -1942, 1916 to 1920, 1922, 1932 to 1933.

GDP began Volker’s 1979 term at 3.2% and dropped to negative 0.5% in 1980 then 2.5% in 1981 and -1.8% in 1982.

No changes next week to long EUR/USD and GBP/USD while short USD/JPY and USD/CAD. GBP cross pairs as best profit trades: GBP/CHF, GBP/JPY and GBP/CAD. No thrills to GBP/AUD and GBP/NZD.

EUR cross pairs remain best trade options to include EUR/NZD and EUR/AUD.

USD/CHF trades severely overbought and targets 0.9685. Overall USD/CHF trades neutral to medium and long term averages as a big CHF move is not seen anytime soon. USD/JPY and USD/CAD are quite different as both follow DXY.

FED Funds and the State of Trading

Fed Funds at current 2.33 rises 12 points per 25. So a 50 point raise count 24 to 2.47 and 75 count 36 to 2.69. Fed Funds is called the effective rate and most important because the Fed and Central banks deal not from the headline but the effective rate and associated rates to the effective rate such as Commercial Paper.

See EUR/USD Weekly Trade. Long 0.9965 to target 1.0074. Low 0.9965, highs 1.0034, running +69 pips.

Here’s 2.33 Vs 40 and 50 year monthly averages

FED Funds 2.33 & 40 &50 Year Monthly Averages V DXY

50 X 2.33 = 116.50

49 = 114.17

48 = 111.84,

47 = 109.51

46= 107.18

45 = 104.85

44 = 102.52

43 = 100.19

42 = 97.86 = 50 Year average

41 = 95.53 = 5 Year Average

40= 93.20

FX Weekly

EUR/USD expected close at 0.9986 actual was 1.0011. Past close price forecasts always landed within a 20 to 40 pips range.

Nothing changed since Thursday as EUR/USD trades 0.9983 to 0.9862 or 0.9983 to 1.0105. Here’s Thursday: 1.0110 to 0.9986 and 0.9986 to 0.9863.

The Trade: Long 0.9967 and 0.9959 to target 1.0074. Must cross 0.9997, 1.0012, 1.0027, 1.0042, 1.0057, 1.0072, 1.0087. Short 1.0074 to target 1.0028.

Target is just under 1.0105 and entry just under 0.9983.

JPY cross pairs are all oversold but 2 factors at play. GBP/JPY trades below vital 163.33. GBP/JPY below forced JPY cross pairs lower and into current oversold for the week. GBP/JPY above 163.33 forces JPY cross pairs higher. Strategy is short for most profits.

Trade Rankings’


Note JPY cross Pairs at last place. EUR/JPY maintains best to JPY cross pairs because EUR/JPY is the same exact currency as USD/JPY. Both trade almost pip for pip in unison. A short for EUR/JPY is a short for USD/JPY and vice versa.

USD/CAD sits massive overbought to oversold CAD/JPY and CAD/CHF. Good 3 trades is short USD/CAD and long CAD/JPY and CAD/CHF.

USD/JPY maintains 142.69 to 145.47 in massive ranges. Target for the week is 141.00’s.
EUR/NZD trades severely overbought above vital 1.6439 while GBP/NZD trades below 1.9183. Divergence is wide. EUR/NZD is the better trade short.

EUR/NZD at 1.6703 and GBP/NZD at 1.9058 spreads 2300 pips. Correct for normality is 2600 which says a big move ahead.

Same story to GBP/AUD and EUR/AUD divergence as EUR/AUD trades above 1.4801 and GBP/AUD below 1.7274. The spread is 2000 pips and low as normal exists at 2600 pips.

AUD/USD and NZD/USD are deeply oversold as well as AUD/CHF and NZD/CHF. NZD/CHF and NZD/USD are better longs trades.

EUR/CAD closed at 1.3274 and perfectly on the vital high/low point. Informs how perfectly are markets statistically.

GBP/CAD is the better long trade as EUR/CAD for a weekly trade is untouchable. The 24 hour trade is the better option for EUR/CAD.

Plus view EUR/CAD 1.3274 Vs USD/CAD 1.3263. The crossover is upon us.
USD/CAD 1.3263 Vs GBP/USD 1.1415 and 1848 pips is at far extremes to USD Vs Non USD.

GBP/USD at the close 1.1415 trades 1695 pips from its 5 year average at 1.3110. EUR/USD at 1.0011 trades 1440 pips from its 5 year average at 1.1451, AUD/USD at 500 and NZD/USD at 800 pips.

DXY trades 1400 pips form its 5 year average and 1300 pips from the 50 year monthly average while USD/JPY trades 3100 pips from its 5 year average at 111.85.
USD/CAD trades 300 pips from its 5 year average at 1.2900’s and 800 pips from the 10 year average at 1.2400’s.

USD Vs non trade at enormous extremes. More pertinent to the week is ranges are far wider than normal. This means more pips per trade into the 200 and 300’s.

GBP Trade Ranks


While trades are factored for GBP/JPY and GBP/NZD, last on the rankings due to positions from averages and divergence to EUR/NZD and JPY Cross Pairs.

4 best are GBP/USD, GBP/CHF, GBP/CAD and GBP/AUD due to oversold.

Brian Twomey and Subscribers

My posts in 4 straight weekends achieved front page on fxstreet and investing dot com views skyrocketed in the 1000’s. Overall, friends, readers, followers are in the multi, multi 1000’s. Most are 10 and 15 year followers.

No mystery to delivering profits continuously over many years and showed amazing trades and results.

For 25 cents more, all this buys is a cup of coffee in Barcelona.

I’m severely down on subscribers as a few traders are off doing special projects outside markets and vacations.

Part of subscriber money goes to assist others in trouble with life circumstances. Its quite astounding what I’ve done over the years. God knows.

I’m posting this week for my blog only for long time friends and followers. Subscribers maintain this blog and continued writings. If no subscribers then no writings. Nothing more I can do as we are forced to go private.

I don’t know this computer nor will I spend 24 /7 on twitter, social media and you tube. If I had the right equipment and knew how to use it, so so much I wanted to show to currencies, markets and trading.

I’ve been at this thing for 18 years and assisting traders since the 2012 trades. I held out hope from Peter and Tommy to see the inside to markets and trading but this hope died long ago as my friends don’t give 2 shoots.

The saving grace was never to become a member of the cabal of collusion that exists. This collusion is much deeper than I ever thought before. Its an Iron Triangle where only the insiders are members. Probably exists in the class of professionals.

FX Next Week

Tuesday’s Inflation story was an anchor pair event as DXY traded 213 pips then EUR/USD and GBP/USD matched DXY at 213, USD/CAD 221 and USD/JPY at 308 pips. NZD/USD traded an extraordinary 175 pips to AUD/USD at 145.

Missing in action was cross pairs as EUR/AUD traded 140 pips, GBP/JPY 185, EUR/NZD 94, EUR/CAD 107, EUR/JPY 139 and 148 for GBP/AUD.

Cross pairs traded barely above 1/2 DXY ranges as compared to anchor pairs EUR/USD, GBP/USD. GBP/AUD and EUR/JPY were Wednesday’s range winners at 172 and 218 pips.

Dow Jones

The Dow dropped 1000 points. On a 31,000 price, 1000 points lacks classification to a move. The Dow must travel at least 5,000 points to consider meaningful significance. The Dow at 1000 points is a media story rather than a market event.

Next Week

EUR/USD expected close on Friday at 0.9986 then ranges from 1.0110 to 0.9986 and 0.9986 to 0.9863. Next week’s long target is 1.0110. Deeply oversold EUR/CHF at 0.9600’s lies just below EUR/USD’s price and holds as EUR/USD supports.

Much higher EUR/USD must clear 1.0233 to target easily 1.0300’s.

DXY is expected to trade from 110.64 to 107.13. At 110.64 remains below the 110.78 highs from 40 and 50 year monthly averages while 107.13 breaks to new lows.

The overall market story is EUR/USD Vs USD/JPY and DXY. USD/JPY serves as the best proxy for DXY. Both are the same currencies and both massive overbought, short and long term.

Expected close for USD/JPY at 142.27 then means short next week to target 140.00’s and 139.00’s. Any price above 142.27 is a gift for extra pips to shorts in the vicinity of 143.64.

GBP/USD at the 1.1576 expected close then ranges next week from 1.1380 to 1.1576 and targets just below 1.1770’s. GBP/CHF at 1.1100’s holds GBP/USD as supports.

AUD/USD is running into range problems. Tuesday’s 145 pip day was an oversold story while last days, AUD/USD traded 50 pip days. AUD/USD’s magic number for higher is 0.6930.

Massively oversold NZD/USD targets next week around 0.6165 on entry anywhere. NZD/USD is the best trade rather than AUD/USD as AUD/USD will underperform NZD/USD.

GBP/JPY 163.35 and EUR/JPY 139.76 hold JPY cross pairs from the big drop. Add USD/JPY at 136.00’s.

JPY cross pairs began the week deeply overbought and remain deeply overbought for next week on a short only strategy.

To 24 Hour trades was added EUR/CHF and GBP/CHF for a 14 currency pair total. EUR/CHF was added to weekly trades for a 22 currency pair total.

For trades, contact at btwomey.com

EUR/CAD close at 1.3045 may not trade which means EUR/CAD relegates again to last place in the trade rankings. Same story as last week. GBP/CAD so far is the better long trade for next week to target just under 1.5300’s.

EUR/NZD as written last week began the week overbought and traded higher this week. EUR/NZD trades in the stratosphere overbought. Good short trade to target 1.6400’s.

GBP/NZD at 1.9164 is do or die approach as 50/ 50 exists to guess longs or shorts. GBP/NZD last week was deeply oversold at 1.8900’s and traded 300 pips higher to 1.9200’s.

GBP/NZD Vs EUR/NZD extreme divergence existed to oversold GBP/NZD Vs overbought EUR/NZD. GBP/NZD resolution a 1.9164 may resolve the divergent problem for next week.

EUR/AUD 1.4771 holds EUR/AUD higher. Short next week at 1.4900’s to target low 1.4800’s. Not much excitement to EUR/AUD.

GBP/AUD is materializing as the better long trade to target middle 1.7100’s but like EUR/AUD no thrills exist to GBP/AUD.

Overall, expected is a normal trade week without violent swings.

The major problem to EUR/USD was seen from 40 and 50 year monthly averages but specifically the insight derives from day trades.

Top Side EUR/USD for today. 1.0147, 1.0153, 1.0159, 1.0166, 1.0172, 1.0179, 1.0185, 1.0192

Looks like yesterday? EUR/USD at a paltry 50 pips per day trades 6 and 7 pip spreads. This decreased spread is most compressed and never seen before.

Typical EUR/USD in past years dating to 10 and 18 years ago traded 75, 80 and 90 pips per day. This means EUR/USD spread 9, and 10 pips as follows based on today’s trade.
Topside: 1.0150, 1.0159, 1.0168, 1.0178, 1.0197, 1.0207, 1.0216.

At 50 pips offers roughly 100 pips per day assuming EUR/USD trades a full range Vs 80 pips per day at 160 pips. The central banks chopped off 60 ish pips per day to trade.
Opposite EUR/USD is DXY at 55 pips or 7 pips as follows for today’s topside: 108.07, 108.14, 108.21, 108.28, 108.35, 108.42, 108.49, 108.56.

DXY and EUR/USD has been trading 50 pip days for the last years. And this won’t change much in years to come.

GBP/USD Topside: 1.1719, 1.1726, 1.1733, 1.1741, 1.1748, 1.1756, 1.1763, 1.1771.
GBP at 7 and 8 pips trades its most compressed spread in many years.

Compare GBP/USD to its opposite USD/CAD. Topside as follows: 1.2989, 1.2997, 1.3005, 1.3014, 1.3022, 1.3030, 1.3038, 1.3047.

USD/CAD is trading rare days compared to GBP/USD by spreading 8 and 9 pips vs GBP/USD at 7 and 8 pips. Normally GBP/USD beats CAD by trading more pips per day.
GBP/USD yesterday traded 110 pips vs USD/CAD 82. This is typical in the GBP/USD and USD/CAD relationship. DXY traded 103 pips. Also common on any trade day.

AUD/USD and NZD/USD: The Constants

AUD/USD Topside today: 0.6879, 0.6883, 0.6887, 0.6892, 0.6896, 0.6901, 0.6895, 0.6910
AUD at 4 and 5 pips holds constant in past decades and will hold exactly in decades to come.

NZD/USD topside for today: 0.6134, 0.6137, 0.6141, 0.6145, 0.6149, 0.6153,0.6157, 0.6161

NZD 4 pips is also a constant. NZD never changed from past decades nor will ever change in decades to come.


Now we arrive at constant change. USD/JPY traded from 59 daily pips to 72 and spreads 9 pips to beat EUR, GBP, AUD, NZD and CAD. For USD/JPY at 9 pips is extraordinary as I don’t remember 9 pips ever seen before.

Topside for today: 142.29, 142.38, 142.47, 142.56, 142.64, 142.74, 142.83, 142.92

USD/JPY should trade 50 pips to match EUR/USD and DXY. USD/JPY is the outlier to today’s markets but not an outlier compared to JPY cross pairs.

EUR/JPY Topside today: 144.30, 144.39, 144.48, 144.57, 144.66, 144.75, 144.84, 144.94
EUR/JPY matches USD/JPY exactly at 9 pips.

GBP/JPY however is the driving force to USD/JPY and JPY cross pairs as GBP/JPY trades 10 and 11 pip spreads. GBP/JPY must trade more pips than USD/JPY and JPY cross pairs as designed and never changed in past decades nor will ever change in decades to come.

Topside today. 166. $$, 166.77, 166.87, 166.98, 167.08, 167.19, 167.29, 167.40.
Currency pair pips and ranges contains a chain of command inside their own built in structure. Each pair was designed with their own ranges and spreads.

Every financial instrument on the planet operates exactly as currency pairs to pip spreads and ranges.

SPX for example is fairly constant at 20 points which means spreads at 5 points. Stock indices and commodities were designed to underperform currencies especially DXY. This is a constant to markets.

SPX yesterday traded 33 points to DXY 108 or 1/3.

GOLD for example is also fairly constant at 9 pips and 3 pip spreads.

WTI Oil and Brent trade 3 and 5 points per day or 1 and 2 point spreads.

Required is know the simple interest rate procedure then count on your fingers or use a calculator to factor day trades.

Brian Twomey


Severely overbought JPY cross pairs begin the week. USD/JPY adds to the ranks of overbought as a result of DXY trading near 40 and 50 year monthly averages.
The DXY venture began 16 months ago at 89.00 lows in May 2021 to travel to 110.00 highs. In 16 months, 12 monthly candles were solid green and one Doji at the vital 95.00 MA.

DXY supports are located next at 107.74, 106.20, 104.56, 103.74, 102.92, 102.66, 102.28, 101.36 and 100. DXY 109.59 becomes vital to trade higher to 110.00 and 111.00’s.
Overall DXY still trades in 100 and 200 pip ranges to inform currency market price moves won’t see violent up and down swings. DXY traveled higher from 89.00’s by 125 pips per month and this is what is expected long into the future.

Best trades for profits are EUR/USD and USD/JPY as EUR/USD trades massive oversold Vs richter scale overbought to USD/JPY. Best cross pairs are EUR currencies and JPY.
Overbought JPY cross pairs this week is expected about 200 pips lower. Trade order begins as GBP/JPY and EUR/JPY then CAD/JPY, AUD/JPY and NZD/JPY. JPY cross pair trades represent corrections from deep overbought until GBP/JPY breaks 162.63 and EUR/JPY 138.81.

Currency markets radically change trend when USD/JPY breaks below 136.00’s and EUR/USD above 1.0200’s.

GBP Trade Ranking

GBP/USD, GBP/JPY, GBP/AUD, GBP/CAD, GBP/CHF, GBP/NZD. All GBP currencies begin the week deeply oversold to include GBP/NZD. The GBP/NZD oversold problem is EUR/NZD trades massive overbought. EUR/NZD for past weeks is trading 100 and 150 pip days. EUR/NZD should trade easily double 100 and 150.

Trade Rankings

EUR/USD targets 1.0140 while short to USD/JPY and JPY cross pairs. Oversold NZD/CHF will lead NZD/USD higher. EUR/AUD higher matches oversold GBP/AUD. Watch EUR/AUD 1.4748 for trade much higher.


DXY at 40 and 50 year averages most affected USD/EM to trade to overbought tops. Best shorts are located in USD/BGN, USD/DKK, USD/HUF, USD/TRY,

USD/BRL and USD/ZAR are working off overbought and heading to neutrality. Brazil and South Africa are members to the restoration of the BRIC alliance as Brazil, Russia, India and China.

FX Next Week

DXY traded to 110.78 highs against tops to the 40 and 50 year averages at 110.72 to 111.55. Points 110.72 – 111.55 holds as tops for months to come.
