Why EURUSD 1.10 is So Important

JP - I'm sure you probably even remember

between NY Close + Tokyo Open - $Yen used to trade in a 200-400 pt range regularly

now of course this never happens.

Algo's aren't patterned for those movements anymore .. they are looking for a more normal 5-20 pts.... because they have nothing else to trade into..... only major breaking news makes a difference to this.

I'm more suggesting that your profits are being taken away by Algos who are more looking towards correlation trades than just the FX Part

so levels like 1.1000 Jay mentioned take on alot more importance than they would have pre-algo time.

Tradeable sure - dependent on the average daily range.

Here's my take on "Magic Levels"

In days past in FX there were no magic levels - there were only targets.

So a 1.1000 approach meant we would see 1.0800 before a bounce back to 1.1200 + that type of move would only take 1-2 hours.

There were no Algos or PC Programs monitoring the markets 24/5 looking for any advantage or correlation to trade ... the best we had were Turtle Traders who wanted to break levels not bid them.

This created a situation where Traders who had been around a while would just trade the overshoots + make really good money.

Now we battle over every level - with Algos taking advantage of many more markets operating at the same time + being able to arb here / correlate there and reduce their risk many times over.... yet still churn out profits on a daily basis.

The only time we see the overshoots any more is Monday Opens when all the other markets are closed ... but what happens when everything comes online again ... we end up with the "Monday Effect" and it is back to normal PC driven trades.

FX is interesting in terms of following the themes/data/correlations but not so much the day to day grind of what its become.

At the end of the day everyone has to adapt or get left behind.

AUD fell from 0.7820 to 0.7754, broad US dollar strength the main factor at play. NZD extended its afternoon slide, falling to 0.7454. It was at 0.7595 before the RBNZ announcement it was looking at measures to cool the housing market, that news causing the NZD to underperform on the day. AUD/NZD extended the day’s gains from 1.0360 to 1.0418.

Why EURUSD 1.10 is So Important
GVI Forex Jay Meisler 19:18 GMT 03/05/2015  - My Profile

I still find it amazing that psychological levels, such as 1.10 or USDJPY 120 can be so significant in an electronic world where algos and automated trading can have a large influence. The EURUSD 1.10 level, currently under attack, has no technical significance but is one of those major psychological levels that can be even more powerful than any chart point. Whatever the case, what I call magic levels, such as 1.10, continue to be as strong an influence as they were decades ago when psychology was at least as important as technical analysis in dictating market sentiment,

EUR/JPY down 10 percent since the start of the year, give or take.

Asset allocation will depend I suppose a great deal on the outlook for the Euro from here. What's certain is that a lower Euro is not going to have a negative impact on the European economy. Especially considering the fall in the price of OIL.

My guess is that nothing changes until someone pulls the trigger and actually tightens policy.

I got:

DAX up 17.3 percent
Italy up 17.8
Russia up 15.3
France up 16

since January 1 2015.

I guess you have to figure what the returns are likely to be from here on in and if the Euro goes lower from here or not. If you are a Japanese investor I would guess the returns look pretty darn good. I don't get the impression that European markets are being driven by an inflow of funds from the States. Bond returns also would have been good.

CB: It all depends on your trading timeframes and account parameters. Currencies move in both directions, and usually in trading ranges. I use multiple accounts, multiple entry points and multiple trades going on simultaneously. While it is generally true that you do not want to fight a trend, I'm willing to put on buy and sell trades simultaneously that might make profit, just like any professional trader or hedge fund.

yes i get it DRS2, euro was 65 cents when allegedly Sadam started buying. so yes it much higher than there and still above the last low following that at 84 cents, but...we are below (monthly closes below last month) two key fibs of both those up moves (11251, 61.8% and 11212, 50%). this suggests further to go for me. and the nearest fib from here on lt monthlies is near 101. but as i said before, i take it one step at a time, one level at a time. 10986 needs to go then 10875. st selling 11025/60 ahead of nfp but likely to go flat or small short dollar into event.

the problem is, once a CB or an "elected" official decides on a direction (AKA Trend) it's best not to fight it. The corollary in the US is STOX where BTFDs ... as it is here in the USD/JPY.

For a monthly chart, you can go back 10 years and only use 120 bars. You can have daily charts for 10 years and you wouldn't come close to 50000 bars.

Am I prepared to go "against the trend"? It depends on what trend you are talking about. On a monthly chart, EUR/USD is simply in a trading range, that's all. It is definitely at multi-year lows. For short-term trades, I'll sell. For longer term trades (which for me can go on for months), I'm not selling.

DRS2 its a figure of speech. simply a break of supp tgts nxt supp and so on. as for a change well 3 major res breaks in a row and i will join you on the upside. but for now long term trend is down and picking a bottom is just down to luck as really right now as of this second, there is nothing fundamental or technical in the market to suggest a change in lt trend to the upside.

Nonsense...currencies can always come back. They are just pairs to be bought and sold. At extremes, one can always find a reason to justify continuance of "the never ending trend". It's always the currency sucks and the other is awesome, or vice versa.

there you have your stop run under 1.10. this is pure algo and why i put 10986 as the true supp. doesnt pay algos to run that low so if it does its a true break. write this one down in your sketch book as itll make you a lot of money. 11025 is now res, 10986 dwnside pivot.
