Free webinar on ForexPros - Mapping Out the Banking System & Foreign Exchange Dealing Process, Part II.
Expert: Dan Cook
When: Wed, Feb 24, 2010, 11:00 EST
In the second installment of the Webinar â€˜Mapping Out the Banking
System & Foreign Exchange Dealing Processâ€™, Dan Cook will take a
deeper dive into the Foreign Exchange Market. Cook will start by
discussing the interbank system and how it differs in form and
functionality to the centralized exchange models used for trading
stocks and commodities. From there, he will focus on broker-level
dealing and discuss how retail brokers, whether ECN's or Dealing Desk
models, make money.
Cook will also take an inside look at dealing desks and speak frankly
about the roles and responsibilities of a retail dealing desk, which
will include an overview of how brokers hedge currency exposure. The
goal of this Webinar is to help traders understand the nuances of the
Forex market by shedding light on many of the aspects of currency
trading that have previously been shrouded in mystery.

Fundamental Analysis: German CPI
European traders look forward to the publication of the German Consumer
Price Index (CPI) tomorrow, February 9. The index measures the changes
in the price of goods and services.
The CPI measures price change from the perspective of the consumer.
It is a key way to measure changes in purchasing trends and inflation
in Germany. A higher than expected reading should be taken as
positive/bullish for the EUR (as the common way to fight inflation is
raising rates, which may attract foreign investment), while a lower
than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the EUR.
Analysts predict no change in the future reading, a rate of -0.60%.
The Euro came very close to the 4-hour channel on Friday, after
breaking the support specified in the report, and the drop stopped only
2 pips before the first suggested target 1.3852. With this move taking
us close to the channel bottom, and then a fast bounce reaching 1.3666,
the odds of an upside correction remains present, but we need a break
of 1.3666 before we can say the odds favor that. Short-term resistance
is at 1.3666, and breaking it would indicate that the price is already
moving higher after the drop we witnessed last week, even if that was
only for a short term correction. The targets for such a correction
would be 1.3752 & 1.3805. While the support is at 1.3620, and
breaking it would bring back Fridayâ€™s target under the spotlight:
1.3582 & 1.3516.
â€¢ 1.3620: the falling trend line drawn from Jan 21st bottom (1.4027) on the hourly chart.
â€¢ 1.3582: Apr 6th high.
â€¢ 1.3516: Apr 2nd high.
â€¢ 1.3666: short term resistance.
â€¢ 1.3752: Fibonacci 38.2% for the last drop from 1.4025.
â€¢ 1.3805: Fibonacci 50% for the last drop from 1.4025.
The Pound dropped in a free fall after breaking the support specified
in Fridayâ€™s report 1.5690, and reached the target 1.5614 successfully.
This morning, a new bottom was reached at 1.5532. It seems that this
sharp trend is not tired yet, especially after breaking the falling
trend channel to the downside, which contributed to this sharp drop.
Thus, we will maintain a negative outlook, as long as the price is
trading below the bottom of the channel which is at 1.5704 currently.
And even though the price is far from this level at the moment, we will
consider this to be resistance of the day, and only if it is broken
that we will change our long held negative outlook. If this surprise
happens, and we break 1.5704 we will target short term Fibonacci
retracement levels 1.5800 & 1.5862. As for the support it is at the
nearby 1.5543, and breaking it would indicate that this Dollar tornado
will not stop soon, targeting 1.5445 & the important 1.5350.
â€¢ 1.5543: intraday support.
â€¢ 1.5614: Nov 28th 2008 high.
â€¢ 1.5512: May 12th high.
â€¢ 1.5704 the bottom of the falling broken trend channel.
â€¢ 1.5800: Fibonacci 50% for the last drop from 1.6067.
â€¢ 1.3863: Fibonacci 61.8% for the last drop from 1.6067.
