FX Thoughts for the day - Evening - 15-Feb-2006....1231 GMT

Euro @ 1.1905/08....Sell on a rally
R: 1.1949-60 / 1.1981 / 1.2026
S: 1.1901-1892 / 1.1875-60
The Euro is trading BELOW some important chart levels, putting it into technically bearish territory. For instance, it is trading below 1.1981, the 50% retracement of the rise from 1.1641 (Nov-05) to 1.2321 (Jan-06) and below 1.1950, the Trendline Resistance coming down from the 1.2321 High of Jan-06. The benefit of doubt works against the Euro at the moment. BUT, it has bounced off 1.1860 yesterday, which now acts as a Support. The market is waiting for some more reasons to sell the Euro with more conviction, looking to Bernanke's testimony today as a possible catalyst.

We are willing to sell a rally.

Sell EUR 20K at 1.1938, SL 1.1990, TP 1.1840

$-Yen @ 117.55/9.... Try the Long side
R: 117.81 / 118.50-60
S: 117.14 / 116.88
Overall, Dollar-Yen is likely to be in a range of 115-120.50 for the next 6-8 weeks. The question is, whether 120 will be seen first or whether 116 will be seen before that. For now, the Support in the 117.22-12 region is quite strong. At the same time, immediate Resistance at 117.81 is quite crucial as well. Hopefully, a break of either of these two (the Support at 117.22-12 or the Resistance at 117.81) will trigger a directional movement.

In case of an upside break, we'd look for 118.50. In case of a downside break, we'd look for 116.25. We'll play the market from the Long side today.

Buy $25K at 117.39, SL 117.00, TP 118.32

Euro-Yen @ 139.96/140.01....Selling now
R: 140.58-63 / 141.02-12
S: 139.96-92 / 139.60 / 139
The Euro-Yen moved up and as expected found sellers on rallies and has now fallen down. As of now it is trading in a range of 139.60 on the downside and 140.50 on the upside. On the downside the Supports are present at 139.96-92 and then at 139.60. Once these Supports break there could be a fast fall towards 139 levels. On the upside the Resistances come in at 140.58-63, above which there could be a move towards 141.02-12. The Cross is also trading below its 200 MA on the 4-Hourly charts. The bias stays bearish and we are willing to sell now.

Sell Euro 20K at current level, SL 140.60 TP 139.10

$-Swiss @ 1.3082/87....Ranged intraday, Buy Dip
R: 1.3110-14 / 1.3140 / 1.3167
S: 1.3062 / 1.3030-10 / 1.2976-68
The $-Swiss has traded in a very narrow range in the day so far. The current short term range is 1.3110 and 1.3050. Once there is a break of the said range, there could be a good directional movement coming. The current Resistances come in at 1.3110-14, which falls on the trendline (Daily, joining the high of 1.3287 on 17-Nov 05 and the high of 1.3203 on 30-Dec 05). Above this the Resistances are present at 1.3140 and then at 1.3167, which is the statistically projected Max High for the day. On the downside strong Supports come in at 1.3062-50, and then at 1.3030-10. The intraday bias is bullish. We would still like to buy a dip for a purely intra-day trade.

Buy $25 K at 1.3055, SL 1.3030, TP 1.3100

Cable @ 1.7390/5....Exiting Short
R: 1.7425-32-47-57 / 1.7478
S: 1.7388-69 / 1.7331
In the morning, we perceived Resistance at 1.7400 and have sold accordingly at 1.7380. The Resistance region is a broad range stretching from 1.7425 to 1.7457. Even 1.7457 is a statistical possibility. Although the overall outlook is bearish, there is a danger that there will be a spike into the Resistance region, which can trigger our Stop Loss. In essence we seem to have sold too early.

Directionally, in case the Cable closes above 1.7440 today, there would be good chances of a further upmove towards 1.7530. Hence, we are exiting our Short with an intention of selling again tomorrow on better certainty.

Exit Trade:
Exit at current level (SL) the Short entered at 1.7380

Aussie @ 0.7413/8....Bearish bias
R: 0.7426 / 0.7437-46 / 0.7457-64
S: 0.7400-0.7388 / 0.7360
The Aussie has been finding strong selling on rallies currently. In the very short term the current range is 0.7426 and 0.7400. On rallies once the Resistance at 0.7426 is crossed there may be a move towards the very strong Resistance at 0.7437-46. This is also the neckline of the double top on the 4-Hourly charts, which was seen during January. On downsides, the Supports come in at 0.7400-7388. If this Support is broken there could be an increase in the bearishness resulting in a fall to 0.7360. The intraday bias stays bearish.

Happy Trading!
