JN, see my earlier post about EUR crosses. So far it has not made a serious attempt at 1,2550 despite the cross demand.
Perhaps the SNB defense of 1.20 (EURCHF currently 1.2010) is creating some EURUSD demand as well.

yes frustrating, no follow through though, just marginal new high, sell again?
Paris ib 16:03:13 GMT - 11/18/2014
We're pretty close to the highs of the day in EUR/USD... more stops are likely above today's highs. You don't have to look far to guess where the stops are. We have levels published right on this forum. The market is still long USDs overall. This might be a move pushed by stops being triggered to start off with then we see what kind of follow on there is.

As I posted on GVI Forex
Either there have been big flows or it is a market that is caught the wrong way on EURGBP as the cross remains bid and testing .8000+ again.
Offsets out of this cross + EURJPY (146+) have put a bid under EURUSD
My point is the EUR buying is not mainly vs. the USD, which is the conduit for the cross flows
It would take a solid move through 1.2578 to get the retracement calls going.

oh well, very frustrating this euro, should have closed earlier and reload

Paris ib 14:36:10 GMT - 11/18/2014
I wonder what the Japanese have to choose from in the way of politicians. Probably like the rest of us they have no real choice. Just a bunch of party apparatchiks going through the motions. Meanwhile taxes get levied, wages fall, wars are waged and the environment is destroyed.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.
reload short euro 1.2525, as long as today's high intact....

I suppose it ll depend on how easily the Japanese collective can or not be bamboozled and fickle Japanese politics can be this time around with Abe promising even harsher anti-deflationary medicine for Japanese people.

Look at EUR crosses (e.g. EURJPY, EURGBP) if you are looking for a reason why EURUSD is at 1.25xx and not making a run at 1.24.
GVI Forex Jay Meisler 11:44:02 GMT - 11/18/2014
I posted this on GVI Forex yesterday morning and it is now 8 out of 12 days and 3 days in a row that 1.25 has traded. It is also consistent with my week ahead outlook where I cited 1.24-1.26 as the range.
1.25 => has traded 7 out of 11 days in Nov. other days highs were 1.2470, 92, 98, 99

Just $DEM was so much more fun/profitable.
This whole ECB and Draghi -- it is just like buying a $7 bottle of wine -- it is ok once or twice -- but in the long run you prefer something with more quality.

You could be waiting a while though. :-)
Why do you say that anyway? You want more crosses to trade or you have some economic / political point of view there?
gc sf 10:45:11 GMT - 11/18/2014
as for EUR .. the sooner the whole thing explodes and we get the $DEM back the better.

on my CFD says Nikkei 17300 - the level we traded hours and hours today
during that time $YEN traded 116.50-60
so we are just back to where it all started basically.
for Asia tomorrow depends on the closing price of today.
Paris ib 10:28:03 GMT - 11/18/2014
red - 120? I've heard calls for 145 on this forum. Meanwhile Gold is up 1.46% today so if anything what's clear is the increased distrust in paper money. What floored me yesterday was the ECB official talking about the possibility of buying Gold, the point of which escapes me in terms of 'stimulation'.

Paris ib 10:13:54 GMT - 11/18/2014
sja - Sure there is always a two way market. There is this unspoken assumption out there that any new Japanese foreign stock market buying will all be headed to the U.S.. When the market is biased in it's assumptions it's a fair call to question those assumptions. I'm not saying we have hit bottom in the Euro. But I would be cautious on Euro bearishness. Euro is headed higher on all the important crosses today (up nearly a percent against the AUD)......

Paris ib 10:03:16 GMT - 11/18/2014
Stops triggered. That didn't take long. Now we get to see if Friday was a warning sign or a blip. I note Gold is up strongly again. Like on Friday. Something in the market is changing.

Paris ib 09:59:39 GMT - 11/18/2014
I'd say the chances that the 1.2520 buy stops DON'T get triggered are pretty slim. European stock markets all strongly positive. Draghi was supportive of the EuroZone economy yesterday - i.e. supportive of expansionary policy - and judging by the posts here the majority is still in favour of selling the Euro and short.

yes shawn, i will be worried if gbpusd climbs to 1.5720 again and audusd stay above 0.8760, still sell on pops so far
kl shawn 09:54:49 GMT - 11/18/2014
i think so too fs, fading this early London's euro bid, adding 1.2512
at least audusd and gbpusd are subdued

overall we know that when 116.20 holds the market remains in bullish position .. so I guess for immediate bullish phase that would be the level to be watching ... hold vs break.
