Those who watched my video outlook this morning (and those who didn't should have taken me up on my offer), note the magnetic pull of EURUSD 1.36 after failing to reach 1.3650.

But it is gold (+41 =+3.2%) where the action is.

Definition of 'Permanent Open Market Operations - POMO'

When the Federal Reserve buys or sells securities outright in order to permanently add or drain the reserves available to the U.S. banking system. Such permanent open market operations are the opposite of temporary open market operations, which are used to add or drain reserves available to the banking system on a temporary basis, thereby influencing the federal funds rate. Permanent open market operations are just one of the tools used by the Federal Reserve to implement monetary policy.

EURUSD catching a bid out of EURGBP rising back to .80, GBPUSD lower after hitting a wall at 1.70

but FOMC roulette should keep it below 1.3586 unless market smells stops

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  15:39:29 GMT - 06/17/2014  
One quick move on the CPI and then sideways. The sideways is what tests one nerves but life in a low vol market.

syd sf  11:20:22 GMT - 06/17/2014  
all I see is - in and out I don't see real trend positions on the books here .. and that is probably a good thing given how defensive the market is.

the levels with the most pain attached seem to be pretty clear:

1.3500 eur 1.7050 gbp 100.75 $yen

then you have eurgbp 8000... above or below.

not once has market been squeezed ahead of fomc, we could see 90/99/10 but not likely higher before settling aroun 13560-80 tomorrow evening pre fomc. any such stop run can take cable with it now that 16960 has been retaken and a move thru 170 would be possibly with a euro around 13600. however ahead of mpc minutes tomorrow 17040 should cap. not entirely sure as yet how to play minutes tomorrow morning. market is certainly looking for some dissent from one or two members and since carney blow off speech nobody from the mpc has come out to contradict, so the better option may be to fade strength on a break of 17040 tomorrow morning setting up for profit taking ahead of the fed. on release a hawkish mpc minutes will allow for a chse thru 17040 another trade to consider, but setting up long prior is risky given heightened expectations and thus risk of severe drop on disappointment.

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  10:08:59 GMT - 06/17/2014  
As posted last night on GVI Forex. High has been 1.3587

Tuesday's Trading Outlook
GVI Forex Jay Meisler 00:44 GMT 06/17/2014 - My Profile
Early break of 1.3580 has not gone far and suggests this level needs to become support for a greater retracement risk.

There was quiet demand all day and seems more like some book squaring (note EUR crosses) than anything else.

10 day = 1.3586, 20 day mva = 1.3608, suggests res 1.3586-08


GVI Forex Jay Meisler  19:09:42 GMT - 06/16/2014  
Note, 200 hour mva capped the upside

london red 14:20 GMT 06/16/2014
Jay, often on a monday or tuesday people ask the same question. some retracement is called for at the start of the week, particularly with no real data until mid week. its v rare not to partly fill in prev wk range. so no harm done yet. 3569 first key level for me then the 200 hour, above there can stop run to fig/3610. downside in play while below 13670. erurgbp 8006 then possibly 8065 but 8035 could halt.

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  18:01:48 GMT - 06/16/2014  
It is like the market is looking ahead to the FOMC and will try to bide its time. With Iraq looming, it just doesn't feel like a time to make big bets unless you want to bet on the FOMC outcome.

1.3575-80 so far holding.

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  13:06:12 GMT - 06/16/2014  
The ECB speak was not news but reaction to it is more important than the headlinee.

Key level is 1.3575-80 so still within a local range where 1.3550 (magnet level) sets the tone.

Paris ib 19:35 .. What is the problem exactly that they need to talk all the time? Are they worried? Should we be? Or is manipulating financial markets part of their mandate now?

They ARE worried. Liars and manipulators are ALWAYS worried.
What Lurks Beneath? Market Calm Unnerves Central Bankers - bbrg

Notice the proliferation of bullish propaganda. Appearance of "stability" (a deception) is very important to the "communicator" gang. Notice the proliferation of ingenious / sophisticated essplenations and rationalizations of current economics ? Americans in particular like to think of themselves as optimists and prudent players are dismissed as nega-sayers. It is their Achillies heel. The opportunity is in the crushing of alleged nay-sayers because the reality of Bubbles doesn’t change.

So it is a matter of surviving the crushing and being positioned for the inevitable Bubble bursting.

Mtl JP  00:26:06 GMT - 06/01/2014  
Livingston NH the mopes - as you call them - think that if the plebs somehow come to think / fear that they better spend their savings (thus stimulating the economy) before they buy next to nothing or actually nothing IF the "authorities" are driven into an actual monetary exchange - like in the 1958 27 december Rueff-Pinay plan of the so-called adoption of "nouveau franc" - that that fear will stimulate the economy as people basically rush to throw their money away at anything except holding on to it.

For possible historical lesson you ll want to note that the only deaths that occurred at that time were of some plebs committing suicides, but that there was no run on the royals in the palace. (i.e no major social revolution). In fact, the propaganda of the re-valuation of the franc claimed that it "démontrera de façon éclatante la justesse des décisions prises" (it brilliantly proved the genius of the plan).

A bit more recent example is Venezuela: car dealers actually stopped selling cars in exchange for money intake. And people were eagerly buying 10-yr old jillops - in a desperate effort NOT to hold "money" coz by end of day it would lose half of its purchasing power.

Livingston nh  18:08:50 GMT - 05/31/2014  
John - the Japanese did this before so why did they think it would be different this time ?? Tax anything and you will inevitably have less of it // the low interest rates have deprived the economy of its major base of consumers - in a savings based economy citizens will reduce their marginal propensity to consume because their savings are not enhanced by an acceptable rate of return (hence more income is diverted to savings to make up the shortfall)

Before Ben was the Depression nightmare specialist he wanted to impose an inflation target on US monetary policy -- this goal has apparently been achieved and the consequences will be with us for years // if Draghi thinks a cut in interest rates from these low levels is going to be stimulative he should look at the Japanese "success" with low rates

True Believers in doctrine not at all concerned with real life consequences --- the Business Cycle will bite these Ivory Tower mopes and we will pay the price

GVI Forex john   16:10:14 GMT - 05/31/2014  
NEW GVI chart shows the impact of the japanese sales tax hike. Note March (pre-increase pre-emptive buying) and April (post-hike). No telling for how long sales will remain depressed.

Mtl JP  12:03:43 GMT - 05/31/2014  
in Japan (in other words numbnuts Abe) means to accelerate rising prices his citizens pay for the same thing today as compared to a year ago. Rising prices (or inflation) is NOT a reflection of rising and bubbling economy.

In it base form it is a theft perpetrated by "officials" with legalized power to print more of what they call "money". What that means is erosion of purchasing power of one's savings.

All one has to look at is your john 15:32 table and the yearly yield of 0.58% for a 10-year loan to the Japanese government.

So far the investing population is docile as it is getting its donkey reamed.

GVI Forex john   10:14:50 GMT - 05/31/2014  
nh- BOJ has been trying to raise inflation for years. Turns out all they had to do was raise taxes. Yea that will work!

Japanese CPI. The impact of the Sales tax increase has been felt in these data. Its impact is estimated at 2.70%. So the BOJ still has work to do to hits its inflation target.

JP -
"Words, words, words!
I'm so sick of words
I get words all day through
First from him, now from you
Is that all you blighters can do"

Draghi is stuck because there is nothing he can do - if he wants higher inflation he needs to raise interest rates -- AND no self respecting CB could do that

Mtl JP  01:38:51 GMT - 05/31/2014  
GVI Forex john 20:15 // easy solution: you could just consider words as action (i.e. adopt central bankers methods and principles) instead of passing judgement

GVI Forex john   20:15:16 GMT - 05/30/2014  
All I can say is that the markets are almost always disappointed by events like this. It seems the policy-makers never do enough.

As for Draghi, I like him, but he is man of many words but little action.

They seem to be talking even more recently and it makes me uneasy. Don't they just get to set mobetary policy and then scoot. More and more they sound like liars and frauds. Or lost. Which is worse. This next ECB meeting is going to be a doozy. Market going into it all hyped and their entire objective is to keep the Euro from rallying. Which they call keeping imported inflAtion from falling too low.

John it's weird isn't it? I had the thought myself. All these ECB types over here are starting to sound like used car salesmen. What is the problem exactly that they need to talk all the time? Are they worried? Should we be? Or is manipulating financial markets part of their mandate now?

GVI Forex john   19:10:24 GMT - 05/30/2014  
Lots of Fedspeak today. I saw nothing of special note, but even the doves could get a job on CNBC touting stocks. Although they are not talking up interest rates yet, the all are bullish on the economy. It may be they feel that their "job" is to promote confidence?

buy euro, at least temporary bottom has been made IMHO, time to go up

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  10:01:03 GMT - 05/30/2014  
Month end flows likely to dominate

EURUSD trades 1.36 again so clearly sets the tone. Only above the 200 day mva (1.3645) would neutralize the bear bias.

Otherwise, market likely to bide its time until next week's key events.

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  16:46:08 GMT - 05/29/2014  
So here we are, one day to month end.

GBPUSD is holding just above 1.67 but unable to go far from it.

EURUSD is holding just above 1.36, with its upside capped around 1.3625. Range has been around 39 pips, pitiful by historic standards although the chop makes it feel like more.

US bond yields continue to fall. Either the bond market is telling us something about the state of the economy or it is just one mother of a short squeeze and a gift of a lifetime.

So let's look ahead to next week where how it ends will be most important as it will suggest whether we will have a chance at a summer trend, depending on how the EURUSD trades.

Right now we have a tug-of-war with commodity currencies and JPY moving towards the top of the fx food chain and EUR and GBP towards the lower end.

GVI Forex john   15:00:42 GMT - 05/29/2014

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  14:48:15 GMT - 05/29/2014  
Trading question is whether the fx market wakes up to falling US yields (although yields are lower elsewhere as well).

There seems to be an ongoing anti-USD trading bias here and I don't see why look to buy eurusd with the ECB meeting looming.

Looking at a weekly chart, if 1.3475 breaks then => 1.3407 (major trendline) => then 1.3295 => then 1.3105 => then 1.2754, at which point Zeus would appear with 1.2777

Just pointing out the risks.

no Jay, even more bullish now!! buy euro 1.35-1.36 is still my mantra, i like bali sja's idea of 1.35-1.40 summer range.

only under 1.3470 on weekly close then i am wrong

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  15:18:14 GMT - 05/28/2014  
Maybe it is my imagination but this feels like a reluctant market today - maybe it is just my sixth sense speaking but there should be some trade calls

GVI Forex john   11:50:43 GMT - 05/28/2014  
JM- Good point re buyers. Look at the first column of our EUR Heat Map below. Its all red which means that spot EURUSD is beneath every key moving average (5-200). That means if you are trading from the long side, you are swimming UPSTREAM against the current. Scalping with a close stop can work in this environment, but this is not a "buy and hold" market when the trend is so strong.

Thoughts? Other ideas?

EUR Moving averages for Wednesday. Basis Tuesday session...

GVI Forex john   11:39:40 GMT - 05/28/2014  
No idea if its true, but I keep hearing that someone is protecting 1.3600. (option??). Note Jay cites technical levels around 1.3550-60 as key. I try to deal with what we can reasonably get. My focus is on the psychological 1.3600 line today.

As for the holiday tomorrow, this holiday is less important than it once was. Almost all the major Continental markets will be open.

21 pip range so far today - 1.3616-37 - too tight to last for long but hems in both sides until broken'

Holiday tomorrow, end of month argue for a thin end to the week and I am saying this on a Wednesday.

it would be nice to see another short squeeze but that would be a hope trade more than one based on the current risk on downside.

No change to the current risk
if 1.3600-12 is firmly broken => risk to 1.3559-62 => if broken then 1.3475-00. Only 1.3838-42+ would slow this risk.

syd sf  02:09:45 GMT - 05/28/2014  
Fx Trading has changed alot - and now it comes down to several factors.

* each trading session has been looked at - and bots configured to trade according to time vs session

* correlation trading dominates so that no market is on its own - and more times than not FX just provides backdrop liquidity and not direction

* sticking your neck out and taking extra risk or using more leverage just is not rewarded due to what you mentioned - paint drying / time management.

* not only that but the technology operates more efficiently as each month goes by.

So you can adapt and make a living - or try to over leverage and wipe out your account a few times and quit.

To give you an idea on how my style has developed - I have short term trading bots / correlation bots / longer term bots and commodity market bots .. some have trailing s/l some have fixed s/l each optimized for the market they deal .. so they give as little away as is possible.

As you can see it is no secret because the market goes into the same or similar patterns each day .. and like most I disable my bots over news ... anyway study / learn / optimize and find a method that will move beyond the rest of 2014.

best of luck.

Livingston nh  01:15:56 GMT - 05/28/2014  
Last week EUR broke and remained below the long term support daily 144 ema - today the 21 dma (1.3751) crossed the 55 ema (1.3753) this has happened three times since last summer but the 21 dma moved back above quickly - the 21 has not crossed below the 89 ema (1.3736) during this period // Both the 21 dma and 55 ema could cross below the 89 ema this week -- resistance levels are moving lower in tandem so it may be harder to move higher

It is Ascension Day on Thursday and most European countries are closed. This means long weekends for many and along with a Friday month end it will be a thin end to the week.

Factor this into your trading as market will likely be defensive the next few days while hopefully turning offensive next week.

Right now it is the invisible hand vs. the world in the EURUSD.

EURUSD would need to break 1.3668 (intra-day high) for more stops. Otherwise, it consolidates with a reversion to mean being the 200 day mva (1.3642) and tone set by 1.3650 as long as it says within 1.36-1.37.

This sums up a holding pattern week awaiting key events next week.

The early part of this week will see European markets digest the results of the EU parliamentary elections. The results are not expected to substantially alter expectations that the ECB will loosen monetary policy at its June meeting. Moreover, there is little in the euro area calendar today or indeed the rest of the week that is likely to impact on such expectations. Instead, markets will be looking to preliminary May inflation readings next week, ahead of the ECB policy meeting.

EURUSD: Current risks

if 1.3656 breaks => then 1.3688 (1 & 4 hour res) at risk (using 1.3734-1.3614, 1.3660 = 38.2%, 1.3674 = 50%, 1.3688 = 61.8%)

if 1.3614 breaks, then risk to 1.3600 (rumored bids) => 1.3559-62 (next target)

We wil find out how much of the recent fall had to do with ECB and how much to do with EZ elections although the latter was never seen as a game changer risk. Market has not had a real correction since it started to fall, much depends on whether stops are resting above the market.

Reposting my weekend video update.

1.3650 is most important for me although Friday's high was 1.3656. Range sill small (33 pips) but feels like more (life in a low volatility market). 1.3650 caps upside today unless market sniffs out more stops?

Note chatter of good bids at 1,36.

Last leg was about 120 pips, 38.2% = 1.3660.

How Low Can the EURUSD Go?

Feel free to Agree or Disagree or add your view.

GVIForex Jay Meisler  14:41:01 GMT - 05/23/2014  
if anyone is still trading, the high just now was 1.3642 vs. 1.3643 38.2% level posted earlier. Last 1.3630.

This is a great thread and can be setup for any currency.

GVIForex Jay Meisler  12:04:33 GMT - 05/23/2014  
EURUSD avg daily range for 5 and 30 days is 58 pips and that is skewed up by the occasional news driven day. There have been more than enough sub-50 pip range days than any of us like. it used to be a daily range was 100 pips and shows how volatility has shrunk.

Even today, d the excitement of the 100 day mva breaking and a new low, the range has been just 38 pips.

Maybe this reflects a market noi longer USD centric and cross currency flows limiting spot ranges as market gets pulled in both directions.

By the way 38.2% of 1.3688-1.3615 is 1.3643. Not a forecast.

GVI Forex john   11:48:39 GMT - 05/23/2014  
fwiw- Although CPI data today are key for Canada, they are not likely to have any immediate impact on policy. U.S. New Homes sales are a second-tier piece of data, so I do not see much additional market impact from news today.

Otherwise, the German IFO Survey earlier fell short of expectations and can only reinforce expectations for ECB ease in two weeks time. The EURUSD already reacted negatively to the news. Ironically, the DAX has rallied on the IFO data on hopes for an ECB easing. One key focus is the 1.3638 200-day average.

GVIForex Jay Meisler  11:38:51 GMT - 05/23/2014  
it is Friday, US and UK are closed Monday, many are already gone so expect a thin market with many heading for the exits early.

Close will be important today vs. the 100 day mva at 1.3638 but bearish tilt as long as 1.3650+ doesn't trade.

EU elections over the weekend might grab some headlines. Interesting that Ukraine vote has gotten practically no attention.

EURUSD column is all RED except for 200-day average which is 1.3638, so if we close below there it will turn red also.

Bottom line EURUSD buyers are fighting a strong current. This is not to say you can't be a buyer, but when you trade or set your stops, you should be taking account of which way the water is now flowing.

london red  09:50:42 GMT - 05/23/2014  
13570-13490 for me is the low end of current range.

closing remaining 2/3 of 3681 short at 3649..

will check any move at 3634…or 3688

gl gt to all

GVI Forex 01:35:46 GMT - 05/23/2014  
For the close:

1.3638. = 200 day mva

Close below would expose 1.3559-62

Only above 1.3688 would slow the risk although 1.3650 will help set the tone on what will be a thin pre-holiday Friday

German IFO is the data highlight but will not deter the ECB no matter what the result

London Chris, because you may not see that level anyway, why short? another reason is i see the upside potential is more than the downside, and thus the positioning, can't be perfect with the entry anyway because that is not my trading style

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  08:17:09 GMT - 05/22/2014  
No change to the start of this thread that I posted. trading against 1.3688 has worked several times and still blocks 1.37

Let's try it with specific currencies so it is easier to pick out the topic.

Agree or disagree.

EURUSD will not extend its 7 day pattern around 1.37 today. The best chance of this happening is if flash PMIs exceed forecasts and EURUSD pops up on the data. This would be an opportunity to sell unless it gets back above 1.3735. Currently, 1.3688 blocks return to 1.37.

By the way, it did reach an initial target of 1.3635 (low 1.3633) = 200 day mva where it bounced from.

London Chris  08:10:09 GMT - 05/22/2014

Joe maybe you should step out while whatever is happening runs its course. Time out maybe in the fresh air is priceless.

My take is that the USD/JPY is key. JPY has been the funding currency for everything. The universal view was that USD/JPY was going to 110. It's not. But until the longs are stopped out en masse all those trades remain. I'm watching U.S. yields and USD/JPY. If U.S. yields have bottomed (because the heat got to much for the manipulators or the market gets spooked by talk of covert QE or because Yellen and co move further to the hawkish side of things - in my view likely) then we should go back to normal markets. But we aren't there yet and my fear is we may not get there till after Summer.

Anyway till then if you have to trade trade small. I know I am. Good luck, good trades.

Cambridge Joe  07:08:31 GMT - 05/22/2014  
ib thank you.

Apology accepted Joe. Sorry your system isn't working. FWIW I don't think markets are functioning normally at present. And I don't think that's accidental.

We very much share the view that the markets are not behaving normally...... I've had perfect signal a number of times, which previously were proved to be almost perfect, and now.... anything but.

I think the way forward for me is to regard such indications as dynamic pivots and to place buys above and sells below. Until now, I got direction, but time and again get run on to the rocks as it were.

Paris ib  07:01:32 GMT - 05/22/2014

EU parliamentary elections are scheduled to begin today, although most countries vote on Sunday. Polls suggest there is likely to be strong support for anti-EU parties in a number of countries, which could fuel concerns about the future of Europe, at least in the near-term. In reality, however, these parties are likely to have little impact on policy.

Markets have been very gung ho on the Euro and the ECB obviously doesn't like it. We have European elections and the next ECB meeting to get through before you could look for strength. Yellen and company are sounding more hawkish. So I think you could bide your time. Longer term agree, short term the risk reward is against you.

Joe you sound bitter and twisted. Pointless baiting is really well pointless.

3715 stop is topside of 144/169 1 hr tunnel
weekly looks topping with lower highs and the difference between 5sma and 21 sma weekly getting lower signally trend change south..last 3 weeks..

risk very low under 35 pips and lower for multiple shorts entered higher

The EURUSD declined sharply on Wednesday as Janet Yellen took the stage, and look set to log a daily close below key long term support at 1.3661. For a while now we have been watching this level as on that could possibly represent a completion of the three month double top, and today’s action could be the catalyst behind a short entry with an initial downside target at 1.3593. Don’t be surprised if the pair corrects to retest broken support short term, but look for miss in tomorrow’s PMI releases to strengthen it as in term resistance and validate the aforementioned 1.3593 target.
