Weekly Trade Explanation

Our weekly trade rules are to exit weekly trades on or by Friday so to allow for the next set of weekly trades against new entries.

Targets for the most part remain or may not remain valid as target may have to adjust by a few pips. No sense to remain in a trade with a big profit even though target failed to achieve.

With a new entry for the new week, many more profit pips becomes available and adjust target. If a target achieved then we exit.

Certain weeks, we run multiple longs and shorts. Depends on the set ups and how many profit pips are available.

As posted many times, we trade 18 currency pairs every week and we trade by exchange rate numbers. This eliminates all the dinosaur methods used by most traders such as charts, stops and 100% tools and indicators.

I understand thoroughly the price context for every traded pip and our trades, profits and methods are perfect.

This week’s trade theme is CAD as the second position in a currency pair. The purpose for this week’s trade concept completes ongoing research to AUD/USD and cross pairs against the predominant principle exchange rates predict exchange rate entries and targets perfectly.

Perfect to near perfect entries and targets by exchange rate forecasts eliminates 100% of trade indicators, charts, stops and all Math used as predictions. The caveat to math is only certain formulas work but calculations must align to exchange rates predict exchange rates. Market concepts such as overbought and oversold eliminates as a signal.

AUD represents the next currency in a series as work into currency pair combinations was completed in EUR, GBP and JPY. Next is NZD.

AUD/NZD as an exchange rate appears to fail inside the AUD cross pair lineup but AUD/NZD’s purpose to AUD and to NZD is its ability as a forecast currency not only to AUD pairs but to CAD pairs in the second position, particularly AUD/CAD, NZD/CAD and GBP/CAD as the top 3 currencies.

Offered against AUD/NZD is to serve the second function as a signal currency to AUD/USD and cross pairs. Overall, AUD/NZD is truly a fascinating currency pair and vital to the 28 currency pair line up.

EUR/CAD barely serves a purpose to AUD and AUD/NZD but it was added to this week’s trade theme to allow 5 currency pairs to achieve perfect to near perfect entries and targets.

Trades offered are weekly. Must cross are vital levels to cross and allow traders to watch the trade to target.

AUD/USD and Neutrality

Continuing with the analysis to exchange rates predict exchange rates using a $5 calculator viewed to AUD, here’s early synopsis.

The currency AUDUSD is the neutral currency pair in the AUD lineup and consistent to neutrality for USD/JPY and closely related neutral to EUR/USD and GBP/USD. I suspect NZD/USD and USDCHF factors to neutrality as well.

AUDGBP at EUR/AUD reciprocal 0.5000’s is not only the bottom currency but it lacks any fit to the AUD complex and fails to serve as a true AUD bottom.

AUDGBP belongs exclusively in the GBP universe as GBP/AUD exchange rate 1.8800’s to allow trading in wide ranges between GBPCAD and GBPNZD.

GBPAUD great currency but strange as a 3 pip built in deviation exists from AUDGBP to GBPAUD. Possibly the reason is a legacy holdover from Australia’s 150 year peg to AUD/GBP from the 1800’s to AUD/USD’s free float in March 1983. The last valid assessment is 3 pips is a factor of the current market price structure and eventually 3 pips will align itself.

AUDUSD as neutral factors to include AUDGBP but subtract AUDGBP then AUDUSD neutrality holds.

The top pair is yet undetermined as work is ongoing. The top depends what role AUDNZD serves in the AUD complex as AUDNZD may serve as an outlier which means AUDCAD becomes the top. What we know from EUR/GBP as to what appears as an outlier exchange rate number is never the case.

What Neutrality means for successful trading by example.

If EUR/USD is in neutral position, this means EUR/USD’s neutrality exists to allow cross pairs to move. Cross pair movements once complete to their deviation from EUR/USD means cross pairs will exist in neutral positions to allow EUR/USD to align to cross pairs.

A back and forth process of deviation exists from EUR/USD to cross pairs then cross pairs to EUR/USD. Its a question of alignment or misalignment as neutrality can only favor EUR/USD or cross pairs but never both. To favor both eliminates trading and markets.

This back and forth works on a quarterly basis and it means 3 months to trade either cross pairs or EUR/USD because it takes 3 months to either deviate from home base or 3 months to re align back home. The same principle in EUR holds for GBP/USD loosely and cross pairs as well as USDJPY, AUDUSD, and suspects NZD/USD and USD/CHF.

From a 2 year view due to hand calculations to trades, the 3 month periods factors as 2nd and 4th quarters favors cross pair trading while 1st and 3rd quarters favors USD V Non USD such as EUR/USD, AUD/USD and USD/JPY. Profit potential depends how far prices deviated from home base.

The 35 posted trades last year all occurred in the 2nd quarter and all trades were cross pairs. At this time, cross pairs were far far deviated and 35 trades literally wasn’t enough to cover all the possible trades.

What neutrality means by EUR/USD example is EUR/USD will trade in small ranges while cross pairs will outpace EUR/USD and even trend. Then the reverse will occur as cross pairs trade dead neutral to allow EUR/USD its ability to realign to cross pairs.
Up next AUD.

Continuing with our research to exchange rates Predict exchange rates, viewed to AUD.


The currency AUDUSD is the neutral currency Pair in the AUD Lineup.


AUDGBP at reciprocal 0.5000’s is not only the bottom currency but it lacks any fit to the AUD complex and doesn’t serve as AUD Bottom.


AUDGBP belongs exclusively in the GBP universe as exchange rate 1.8800’s to allow trading in wide ranges between GBPCAD and GBPNZD.


GBPAUD great currency but strange as a 3 pip built in deviation exists from AUDGBP to GBPAUD.


AUDUSD as neutral factors to AUDGBP but subtract AUDGBP then AUDUSD neutrality holds.


The bottom pair and most vital to AUDUSD is AUDEUR or as seen by traders as  EURAUD


The top pair? Not sure yet cause it depends what role AUDNZD serves in the AUD Complex as AUDNZD may serve as an outlier

which means AUDCAD is the top Currency. Yet speculation exists to no such concept as an outlier currency as each currency serves its vital purpose in the 28 pair line up.

Weekly Trades: GBP/CHF, AUD/CHF and NZD/CHF



Long 1.2574 and 1.2544 to target 1.2618. Must cross 1.2559, 1.2574, 1.2589, and 1.2604.

Long above 1.2636 to target 1.2756. . Must cross 1.2651, 1.2664, 1.2679, 1.2694, 1.2709, 1.2724 and 1.2739.



Long 0.6644 and 0.6624 to target 0.6718. Must cross 0.6687 and 0.6707.

Long above 0.6729 to target 0.6789. Must cross 0.6749 and 0.6769.

Long above 0.6421 to target 0.6472. Must cross 0.6434, 0.6446 and 0.6459.


6 weekly trades now posted, how much longer to continue posting winning trades after winning trades is under question. The $300 per month fee on 18 weekly currency pairs is ridiculously low but its offered as a rock bottom price to allow traders to profit rather than lose money on crooked trade services and incompetent website traders.

Weekly Trades: GBP/JPY, EUR/JPY, NZD/JPY

Last week’s NZD/JPY and GBP/JPY trades achieved written entries on Monday and Tuesday and both traded lower for 65 and 75 pips profit or 140 pip total. EUR/JPY exceeded 122.12 entry by 74 pips then closed Friday at exactly 122.11.

From GBP/JPY and NZD/JPY lows at 142.67 and 72.35, GBP/JPY and NZD/JPY decided to bounce from its overbought status to more overbought at 144.53 and 73.35. EUR/JPY achieved the Richter scale at 122.80’s. Non normality to a currency price is trade higher when overbought and lower on oversold. Normal and a vast majority to weekly price movements is entry to target.

The methodology on a missed entry by higher on overbought or lower on oversold is immediately add 1 lot to the trade. Next options are either trade to entry for break even or small profit or trade to target with an extra benefit of the additional lot and the market’s gift to added points. Understanding price context is the overall benefit.

EUR/JPY on a break higher of 123.80 might invalidate the short trade and NZD/JPY at 73.55.

As targets failed to achieve its destination last week, the same trades will again run this week.


Short 122.41 and 122.61 to target 121.42. Must cross 122.21, 122.02 and 121.82.
Short below 121.24 to target 120.03. Must cross 121.04, 120.84, 120.64, 120.43 and 120.23.
Long 120.03 to target 121.04. Must cross 120.22, 120.43, 120.62 and 120.81.


Short 72.98 and 73.12 to target 71.69. Must cross 72.70, 72.41, 72.12 and 71.83.
Short below 71.59 to target 70.16. Must cross 71.30, 71.01, 70.72 and 70.43.

Short below 140.89 to target 139.54.

Gridlock: EUR V JPY and JPY Cross Pairs V GOLD, DXY and S&P’s

USD/JPY’s vital high / Low break point is located at current 108.93 and USD/JPY trades above.

The problem to currency prices is EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUDUSD and NZD/USD also trade above high / low break points. All prices are trading in mis positions as risk assets are trading alongside USD/JPY status as non risk asset. This logjam must break to correct the market imbalance.

As noted in the December Gold forecast article, both DXY and Gold as non risk assets and currently trading above 5 year averages are also trading alongside the risk status of the S&P’s. The S&P also trades above its 5 year average. The same logjam inherent in USD/JPY Vs EUR/USD and counterparts are affected in the DXY, GOLD and S&P relationship.

Further noted in the December article was Gold at extreme prices are located from 1553.97 to 1617.76. Gold traded to 1613 then dropped to 1550’s and remains deeply overbought.

The S&P, DXY and Gold price imbalance is broken by either DXY and Gold trade below 5 year averages or the S&P’s break below its 5 year average.

Markets enter 2020 against the common theme of price imbalances as risk assets trade alongside non risk. The gridlock will eventually break as always occurs in markets then trends will develop and correctly traded markets rather than range trading.

Either USD/JPY must break below 108.93 or EUR/USD and counterparts must break below its vital points.

The major effects to the USD/JPY and EUR/USD problem feeds into JPY cross pairs as all JPY cross pairs trade above high / low break levels. The logjam dilemma is not only serious but either USD/JPY or EUR/USD and counterparts must own their respective cross pairs but never both. Great moves ahead once the gridlock breaks but not before.

EUR/USD and USD/JPY current imbalanced status is sending JPY cross pairs higher and into deeper overbought territory, CHF/JPY in particular is at richter scale overbought.

EUR/USD break point is located at 1.1117 Vs EUR/JPY at 121.11 while higher must break 1.1277 and 123.73.

GBP/USD 1.2919 Vs GBP/JPY at 140.75.

NZD/USD 0.6564 Vs NZD/JPY 71.49

AUD/USD 0.6879 Vs AUD/JPY 74.96.

USD/CAD 1.3125 Vs CAD/JPY 83.01 maintains correct market status

USD/CHF 0.9792 Vs CHF/JPY 111.27 also maintains proper market order.

The most important pairs from above are anchors NZD/USD and NZD/JPY as both should lead the way for remainder pairs once respective points are broken. If NZD/USD breaks 0.6564 then risk pairs will follow then we know USD/JPY will trade higher. Also known will be the question who owns JPY crosses.

GBP Predicts GBP Currencies and EUR

Each GBP pair lives and trades within its own separate universe yet all GBP pairs together are members of the same family. Wide range pairs GBP/NZD, GBP/AUD and GBP/CAD are counterbalanced by subordinate lower range pairs GBP/JPY, GBP/USD, GBP/CHF and GBP/EUR. The terms lower vs higher ranges for GBP pairs is a mis applied concept particularly as it relates to short term trades.

GBP and Ranges

Higher and lower ranges assumes automatically wider vs lower or bigger Vs smaller movements. For GBP, not necessarily. Exchange rate numbers disparity to wide distances between each GBP pair were applied, speculatively, on purpose to allow each GBP pair its own separate trading range within its own universe. Exchange rates for GBP means 0 point reciprocals and the straight 1.0 numbers as seen and traded on broker platforms.

GBP: Separate but Equal

All GBP pairs to apply the Plessey Vs Ferguson decision are separate but equal. Separate but equal means GBP pairs lack ability to violate each other’s trading range although on rare occasions GBP/NZD and GBP/AUD may violate spaces but those are fleeting instances and never last as market traders correct for imbalances.


Understand GBP = GBP. All GBP pairs are members of the same family and not one GBP pair is contrary to the GBP universe such as EUR/GBP to EUR or AUD/NZD and sometimes AUD/CAD to AUD or CAD/CHF to USD/CAD. The anti aspect to GBP’s exchange rate line up allows GBP a free wheeling, high flying currency. It doesn’t often trade to its full potential but on paper, GBP encompasses the abilities.

GBP Arrangements

GBP is arranged as GBP/NZD at the top vs GBP/CHF at the bottom anchor or a 6900 pip disparity. Remainder GBP pairs are located between GBP/NZD and GBP/CHF. Why GBP/CHF serves as the true anchor currency pair is because GBP/EUR is just an average currency pair in the GBP universe and lacks importance to the overall GBP whole. GBP/CHF serves the anchor function because at current 1.2600’s vs GBP/EUR at 1.1750’s, GBP/CHF exchange rate numbers are more closely aligned to the GBP aggregate.

GBP Price Drivers

The answer to GBP price drivers is it depends. Each GBP pair contains an equal chance to activate the GBP complex. Yet each GBP pair contains the same ability to render all GBP as neutrality. GBP/NZD, GBP/AUD and GBP/CAD serves an equal function to drive remainder GBP pairs as much as GBP/USD, GBP/JPY and GBP/CHF to GBP/NZD, GBP/AUD and GBP/CAD. Overbought or oversold may apply to one or more GBP pairs. Possibly one or two GBP pairs drives the total. Why?.

GBP and GBP Pair Trading

GBP/NZD, GBP/AUD and GBP/CAD trade within 1500 and even 2000 pip ranges. Those ranges rarely break. AS GBP/NZD, GBP/AUD and GBP/CAD trade and move, ranges usually adjust rather than break. It takes an extraordinary move to break ranges such as a Brexit, 2009 EUR/CHF or 2008 crash scenario. Trading and movement in the big 3 is best described as wandering aimlessly subject to the impulses to other GBP pairs, oversold or overbought by themselves.

GBP Direction

Before GBP/USD, GBP/CHF and GBP/JPY achieved long term targets, all were price drivers to the total. The lower 3 now trade approximately within the context to their ranges. Until a deviation in GBP prices materialize, GBP lacks an overall directional trade strategy. However, all GBP pairs trade at the bottoms of a 20 year range.

GBP Pair Relationships

GBP/NZD and GBP/AUD share a close relationship as the top 2 currencies while GBP/USD and GBP/CHF are deeply aligned. GBP/CAD and GBP/JPY at the center serves as neutral currencies although GBP/JPY chooses for the most part to align to GBP/USD. Why align to GBP/USD is explained by GBP/JPY’s hiighly special ability as a key forecast currency to JPY cross pairs. And because its traditional for JPY cross pairs to align to main USD V Non USD pairs. Then comes the inability for 1.41 GBP/JPY to never trade above GBP/CAD at 1.70’s or lower than GBP/USD at 1.3000’s. GBP exchange rate alignments are permanent features and never to change.

GBP/JPY V GBP/CAD Neutrality

GBP/JPY and GBP/CAD represent not only the demarcation line between the GBP bottom and top but as neutral currencies, GBP/CAD and GBP/JPY provides abilities for the triangulation trade to emerge. As exchange rate forecast exchange rate predictions were tested, GBP/CAD and GBP/JPY appeared in the neutral position more often than any GBP pair. A triangulation fairly defined is a neutral currency Vs 2 currencies allowed movements.


GBP/EUR as least important currency pair means it also severely lacks forecast abilities to other GBP pairs. However, EUR/GBP as another highly special currency not only serves a vital function to forecast EUR pairs but EUR/GBP and GBP together predicts perfectly tops, bottoms, entries and targets for EUR/USD, EUR/GBP, EUR/CHF and EUR/CAD. EUR pairs then forecasts from EUR and from GBP.

GBP Predicts GBP

To forecast EUR pairs from EUR requires nuances and changes to reciprocals and straight 1.0 exchange rates. GBP lacks the EUR complications to forecast exchange rates predict exchange rates. But minor steps are involved and those revelations won’t publish here.

Exchange Rates Predict Exchange Rates

The concept exchange rates predict exchange rates is a self full filling method as present currency pairs, speculatively, are chosen for a reason. Possibly to measure and contain exchange rate numbers within a special distance and to force constraints to currency prices by limit to wide price trading. Not one currency price will fall outside the current alignment because all currency prices align to each other in an interlocking, highly self contained market. Explains why exchange rates predict exchange rates is valid until the end of time.

Only special Statistics forecast perfectly exchange rates predict exchange rates. Not sure how or why a trading system is necessary as a pen, paper and calculator are only requirements to either work Statistics or to use exchange rates predict exchange rates.


While focus in this set of articles addresses each individual set of exchange rates, many, many ways exists to perfectly forecast currency prices by using other currency pairs outside of the sets. GBP/USD and USD/CAD is just one such example.
GBP predicts GBP/AUD is most popular among the GBP line up while GBP fails to forecast GBP/JPY yet GBP/JPY forecasts GBP pairs.

The methods

All exchange rates

= GBP/CAD and GBP/JPY, GBP/AUD bottom, GBP/CHF target and reverse

Reciprocals , add EUR/GBP

Minus GBP/CAD = ?

Reciprocals, add GBP/EUR

Minus GBP/JPY = 0
GBP/EUR is a failure

All Exchange Rates, add GBP/EUR

Total = GBP/EUR failure
Minus GBP/JPY = Nothing

Reciprocals, Eliminate EUR/GBP and GBP/EUR

Weekly Trades: GBP/JPY, EUR/JPY and NZD/JPY

Last week’s GBPUSD trade to short 1.3177 traded to 1.3212 and a 35 bonus point miss to entry. The target at 1.2960 traded to 1.3012 for + 200 pips from 1.3212 and + 165 pips from 1.3177. The 35 bonus point entry miss meant the 1.2960 target had to adjust by 35 pips.

What accounts for a GBP missed entry is not necessarily derived from GBP/USD but was the result of wide range GBP pairs as GBP/NZD, GBP/CAD, GBP/AUD.

A currency price must by mathematical law meet its trade target obligation. If any of GBP’s wide range pairs had to travel higher to meet its target destination then GBP/USD is forced higher. Understand then bonus points are market gifts.

Understand GBP = GBP. All GBP pairs are members of the same family and not one GBP pair is anti to the GBP universe such as EUR/GBP to EUR or AUD/NZD and sometimes AUD/CAD to AUD and CAD/CHF to USD/CAD. Because all GBP pairs are wide rangers compared to all its G28 counterparts, GBP is clearly the currency to lead currency markets.

While traders informed bullish GBP, the long trade was not only impossible and a gamble but GBP/USD began the week at 1.3079 in deep overbought. We traded as usual the easiest, no effort and most profitable trade for 200 pips Vs the gamble long calls for 133 pips.

EUR/USD trade short 1.1168 and 1.1188 to target 1.1131. EUR/USD traded to 1.1204. Target was complete at 1.1131 for +73 pips from 1.1204 and +57 pips from 1.1188.

EUR/USD second trade, short 1.1128 to target 1.1048 traded to 1.1085 for +43 pips. Total pips from trade instruction: + 100 Pips.

EUR/GBP Long 0.8472 and 0.8455 to target 0.8591. Wednesday, EUR/GBP traded perfectly to 0.8455 and climbed to the week’s highs at 0.8534. The trade failed to meet target but profit result was +79 pips.

Total for 4 trades, 3 currencies and profit earned + 379 pips.

Best trades this week are JPY cross pairs.
