USD – Analysis & Trading Opportunities – EURUSD – 22nd January 2021

By |

Good afternoon team,

We are approaching a very interesting time on the charts. The surge overnight in global equities is raising a number of red flags. We are seeing a couple of potential topping formations across different Indices. The DXY is also setting up a possible bullish outlook.

DJT – Daily Charts

DJT Weekly

 

The Dow Jones Transportation index is showing higher highs printing on lower volume, also known as a bearish divergence. This indicates buyers are running out of momentum. The DJT is one of the leading indices in the US stock market. The weekly charts are also showing a couple of pin bar candle formations, which can occur prior to a pull back in the market.

DXY 1 Hour Charts

 

The DXY index is showing a possible inverted head and shoulders formation set up. The 89.80 support zone must hold. If the DXY strengthens from this zone we will see a risk-off scenario take place. The USD has had a perfect inverse correlation to the US stock market since the covid-19 pandemic recovery. A sharp rise in the USD will see a rotation out of equities and back into the safe-haven currency. Keep in mind markets are extremely bullish at the moment, there is no particular fundamental reason to sell. FREE money continues, Biden is going to “unite” America, Yellen and Powell will provide all the money the US Government will need to fight the pandemic and the vaccine rollout continues. This is when possible pullbacks in the market occur when there are no sellers left.

On the other hand, due to the endless money printing in the US, the cost of living is beginning to increase. The bond market is signalling an uptick in interest rates, which is bad news for equties. The FED has suggested they will leave interest rates at record lows for the foreseeable future. However, they may take a wait and see approach if CPI begins to rise rapidly. This will result in a rotation back into the USD as traders predict an interest rate hike sooner rather than later. When this exact scenario plays out is anyone guess, however with the current setup on the DXY, it appears there could be an opportunity tonight. If the inverse head and shoulders formation fails tonight, we may see a final push lower before a sharp correction.

Here are a couple of opportunities to keep a close eye on tonight.

EURUSD – 1 Hour Charts

The EURUSD broke down as highlighted in the previous EURUSD analysis, we are now trading on a key trend line resistance.

We are looking for a SELL opportunity here. 

Trade Setup: SELL Market Execution, current price 1.2171, stop loss 1.2251 and take profit 1.2000.

Stop loss: 80 pips

Take profit: 171 pips

 

USDCAD – Daily Charts

 

We can see the USDCAD price action coiling up inside this falling wedge formation. Over the coming weeks, we see this being a large opportunity for traders. One possible trigger for a huge rally on the USDCAD would be a widespread lockdown in the US, if Joe Biden announces harsher restrictions, or if the vaccine does not get distributed fast enough, demand for crude may decrease whilst the safe-haven demand for the USD will increase. Additionally, the USD inflation play may provide a trigger on this setup.

We are not posting a position on this setup just yet, however long trades look favourable above 1.2797.

USDCHF – 4 Hour Charts

 

I would highly recommend not placing every USD long opportunity, pick one and execute well. The USDCHF is also showing a possible inverted head and shoulders play. The 0.8840 support could provide long opportunities, with targets being set near the 0.9000 resistance.

 

Lastly, a huge shout out to David, who is always coming through with the exceptional charts and information in the live chat!

 

This chart highlights the opportunity coming on the USD and US stock market in the weeks a head. Textbook rising and falling wedge formations can be found suggesting reversals are coming.

Have a great weekend, good luck with you’re trades!!

USDJPY – BUY – 20th January 2021

By |

Good evening team,

A nice technical setup here on the USDJPY.

USDJPY – Daily Charts

There has been a technical breakout and retest of a long term negative trend line resistance. Price action has been coiling up inside the falling wedge formation. We now see the potential for an impulsive move higher towards the +106. For now our shorter term targets can be found at 104.88 and 105.50.

USDJPY 4 Hour Charts

On the shorter term we can see a nice 5 wave structure higher, which suggest we will see an additional 5 waves from the pull back. There has also been a pennant breakout followed by a retest.

Trade Setup: BUY – Market Execution, current price 103.78, stop loss 103.08 and take profit target 105.50. 

Stop loss: 70 pips

Take profit: 172 pips

Keep in mind we are still active on a USDJPY position, therefore be cautious with the leverage used.

Hi trading floor team,

Welcome to the trading floor, Forex Kings wants you to be as successful as we are trading in the Forex Market.

I am sure you have a number of questions, however please read through these FAQs before asking in the live chat.

Please keep in mind, Forex is a very high risk investment, you should not trade with equity you can not afford to lose.

We lose trades, that is part of trading. Understand risk management is the key to success in the Forex market. Forex Kings uses anywhere from a 1% risk to a 5% risk of our total balance.

The amount you chose to risk in the Forex market is solely down to your own discretion.

We highly recommend doing a training period on a demo account whilst you learn. It is better to make mistakes on a demo account rather than your real money.

All positions on this page are set ups that Forex Kings are currently trading.

Here are a number of FAQs that you should read through.

  1. Should I close my trade off I am in a profit? This is entirely down to you when you close your trade off, we set parameters for stop losses and take profits. However, Forex Kings also sends alerts out via text message and telegram of when we close out our trades or update our stop loss. Please do not keep asking if you should close your trade. This FOMO mentality is negative for the community. It encourages jumping in and out of positions which is a very bad trading habit.
  2. What is a market execution trade? A market execution is a live trade going in at the current market price. Everyone will have a slightly different entry depending on how long it takes you to place the trade.
  3. What is a BUY STOP, BUY LIMIT, SELL STOP and SELL LIMIT? These are pending trades. We want our trade to be activated at a certain level as the current price isn’t a great entry. Therefore we use a ‘pending order’ to set up a trade at a certain level.
  4. How do I place a trade? Please go to the section on the trading floor that says ‘how to use the trading floor’. There is webinar content which shows you how to place a trade using MT4. Please watch all of the training videos in the trading floor as well. There is a MT4 guide that you can download from your welcome to the trading floor email.
  5. Can I download MT4 on my MacBook? No MT4 is not available on a MacBook, however there is a web version which you can use: https://webtrader.synergyfx.com/
  6. My symbols on MT4 are greyed out and I can not place a trade… Please right click on the symbols list and select ‘Show All Symbols’. This will show you the symbols you need to trade on. As you are on an ‘ecn’ account you will need to trade symbols with ecn at the end for example EURUSDecn. If you are using the MT4 mobile app please press the + button in the top right hand corner and select Forexecn
  7. How do I trade Gold and Oil? There is a CFD cheat sheet in the trading floor. This will teach you how to calculate position sizes on CFDs
  8. I am having trouble working out position sizes… Most of our new members use an app called ‘Stinu’. Please download this it will give you the correct position for each trade you complete. To get an understanding of position sizes, please open a demo account to get some practice under your belt.

Any further questions please jump into the live chat, or book a call using the book a call feature in the trading floor.
