AUD/USD Bullish Wicks Mark New Wave Of Buyers

Nenad Kerkez

The AUD has been rebounding of late, with stronger Employment numbers for the month and a reduction in the Unemployment Rate to 5.7% as it approaches full employment. Interestingly, the MI Inflation target is 4% for the next 12 months, which may signal rate hikes in the near future. USD weakness continues, and the USD Index looks destined a bit lower, with lower manufacturing numbers, but with all other indicators relatively stable, the concerns lie with whether Trump can now deliver on his Tax cut promises for the next boost to the US economy. more…

USD/CAD Contracting Triangle In Uptrend

Nenad Kerkez

The USD/CAD has formed a contracting triangle in the uptrend, signalling for a potential retracement. At this point traders should pay attention to two possible breakout points. A breakout to the upside could happen at the break of 1.3742 level (D H3 and Upper triangle trend line) while a breakout to the downside could happen if 1.3695 breaks (D L3 and Lower triangle trend line). The point where trend lines cross camarilla pivot point is called an X Cross. Target for the upside breakout is 1.3800 while the target for the downside breakout is 1.3635. more…

EUR/GBP Rounding Bottom Uptrend Continuation

Nenad Kerkez

The EUR/GBP has formed a rounding bottom shaped pattern at the support and is rejecting from W H3 camarilla pivot. 0.8435-50 is POC zone (D L3, ATR pivot, EMA 89, 50.0, trend line) and rejection from POC could target 0.8510. Have in mind that if target is reached, the pair could possibly spike to 0.8550 during next few days. This bullish scenario is negated if the pair drops and stays below 0.8400, rounded bottom low. more…

EUR/JPY Huge Marubozu After French Elections

Nenad Kerkez

The EUR/JPY had formed a huge marubozu candle (purple highlight) on 4h time frame after it was announced that Emmanuel Macron won the first round of the French presidential elections. If you followed my Price Action Trading School, than you should know that marubozu candle appears during high momentum in the market. Equities and EUR/USD went bullish, especially CAC40 as I predicted and analysed in the blog post before the elections. more…

GBP/USD Bullish Cup With Handle Formation

Nenad Kerkez

The GBP/USD has formed a cup with handle pattern on H1 timeframe, suggesting further upside. W H4 camarilla is acting as support as the price broke above it, and it forms a clear handle at the brim of a cup. 1.2480 might spike the price to the upside, targeting D H3 H4 and H5 levels respectively, -1.2516, 1.2538, and 1.2580. If the price breaks below the handle, look for possible POC (D L3, double bottom, ATR pivot) 1.2425-45 rejection. more…

USD/JPY De-Risking Ahead Of Trump-Xi Meeting

Nenad Kerkez

As shown on Live Trading Session yesterday, the USD/JPY fell as expected due by overnight sell off in equities. Equities dropped due to de-risking ahead of Trump-Xi meeting, so we might see another bearish rejection on retracement. The POC 110.80-95 ( D H3, EMA89, ATR Pivot, trend line) could reject the price towards 110.18. Break below it should target 109.77 – the strongest daily support. more…

EUR/USD Range Has Formed Two POC Zones

Nenad Kerkez

After a steady uptrend on EUR/USD, we see that important trend line has been broken and the pair has been dropping consistently for 2 days. One of the reasons why EUR/USD is dropping is possibly profit taking which was enacted by hedge funds as French elections grow closer. Today POC zone for selling is 1.0775-90 (D H3, ATR Pivot, inner trend line, EMA89) while we might expect buyers within 1.0665-85 zone (Order block, D L5, W L5, 78.6). Any break of Upper POC range (1.0790) and Lower POC range (1.0665) should establish new intraweek trend. At this point we need to treat this as range play with 2 zones where EUR/USD might react. more…

GBP/USD Might Be Targeting 1.2550 Short Term

Nenad Kerkez

As we could see on previous Session Recap webinar, the GBP/USD perfectly rejected from POC and provided more than 120 possible pips. Another bullish sign that wee see today is Bullish SHS pattern ( Inverted Head and Shoulders) that might provide a continuation to the upside targeting 1.2550. However Retail Sales data might move the price today. On a worse than expected result the pair might drop to POC (Ema 89, ATR pivot, D L4) 1.2430-50 and then it might spike. On a better than expected data look for continuation above 1.2516 towards 1.2550 D H5/ W H4 confluence. more…

EUR/USD Levels To Watch Prior To FED

Nenad Kerkez

The US Federal Reserve Bank (“the Fed”), has battled to ignite inflation since the GFC and up until now it has raised rates less frequently than the markets have expected, however, this approach may soon change. Today, the Fed is almost universally expected to raise its benchmark interest rates following strong NFP, full employment and an uptick in inflation. The forecast is that the FED will hike the rates by 0.25 % and the event will be volatile as the FED hike might have already been priced in. We need to watch important camarilla levels and POC zones. more…
