Any view on eur/chf for mid term trade?
Look attractive to go long at current level with 50 pips stop for position trade
My EUR/CHF long from 1.06 looks safe now. S/L at breakeven, t/p 1.0720.
Also enter short EUR/GBP at 0.8535 earlier today.

sovereign debt crisis, for those who need "educated people" words as reasoning to take simple trades/positions.

$3 trillions to look for yield in new rounds this year. expect the unexpected interesting times :)


p.s. : respect to the few guys with valuable insight they share and they are doing that without dick waving about few pips gained in a trade. you are one of those JP :)

I am expecting wild pullback with gold some when during the coming 3 weeks even if virus panic gets much higher.

DXY: I do expect March to bring a close above 100.10 and exceptional strong USD wave for few months.

meanwhile, don't forget to book little pips to protect from expected unexpected moves :)

have a nice weekend, especially in virus panic areas.

Thanks Frank, have a nice weekend in scenic Switzerland. For me in Hong Kong, most important of all is to stay alive amidst the corna virus and enjoy working at home.

swiss  frank  16:11:23 GMT - 02/21/2020  
My view for the year is that its going to be a crazy one. Lots of stuff going on in the background in never ending supply. The economic backdrops of some regions doing worse than others I see as a constant tho. With that, besides occasional blips and wobbles the trends in currencies should see continuation. I think it will be hard, but worthwhile in the end to stay in trend trades. This of course is for me as I'm sure others have other trading styles to suit their own views. In any case- Good Luck!

HK Kevin  16:05:02 GMT - 02/21/2020  
Thanks Frank. It's mid Feb and I still can't figure out the market trend for trading in 2020. May be "be nimble" is the survival kit.

swiss frank  15:57:46 GMT - 02/21/2020  
Chartwise i think it looks like a decent enough risk reward trade to go long from 1.06 for a bounce. That said I think bigger picture it can go to 1.000. Position speak I am currently short usd/chf to protect eur shorts (hopefully). Tricky part will be legging out which I never seem to get right.

SNB has not been as active weakening the chf (so I'm told) as in the past due to fears of being labeled a currency manipulator in addition to their already being pretty long US stocks....

We'll see....

swiss frank  15:35:13 GMT - 02/21/2020  
Yes Kevin I think negative rates + unlikelihood of changing policy for a long time, and questionable growth potential amongst other issues perhaps makes one wonder why should eur go up. But with eur being one of the main if not the main funding ccy against a lot of things, when things get wobbly it leaves it as the 'unlikely' beneficiary in times of unwinds.

Euro 20-year trendline supp @1.07, likely to hold

london red  15:21:06 GMT - 02/21/2020  
specs are shrt euro all week, they are close to hitting stops. yen must hold 11.23 or could see a big unwind also. if stocks stay ok, both of these squeezes will pass before close. if not then we need to wait til next week to fade euro.

swiss frank  15:02:30 GMT - 02/21/2020  
Maybe be cautious of carry trade (meaning short eur against everything) unwind potential here. If stocks see a big selloff along with emg ccys (mxn, brl, pln, zar, etc) eur could be the unlikely beneficiary. Might be worth protecting core eur shorts with jpy, chf, or sil longs.... Maybe.

Main take aways from the minutes for me

They continuously sited September package pass thru effects and data from Nov and Dec. I wonder if current thinking remains the same.

The overnight index swap forward curve suggested that the markets currently expected the ECB to stay on hold for at least the next two years.

Mr Lane to keep the monetary policy stance unchanged. This entailed reiterating the Governing Councilís forward guidance on policy interest rates, net asset purchases and reinvestments of principal payments. A highly accommodative monetary policy stance for a prolonged period of time was seen as necessary

If you're speculating (nothing wrong with that), then buying EUR/USD right now could be very profitable. But instead of guessing about market timing, one could just keep on selling for now, and use stops and money management to determine when to change course.

it's more wisdom than bravery to buy euros under 1.08

london red  13:37:00 GMT - 02/18/2020  
below 10820 we are in gap territory. should now fill to 10777. we may get a bounce here. or it may happen down by 10720. mkt options dont see much risk of sustained move under 107. if you are wanting to sell, it may be worthing waiting for a rebound.

what would possibly the cause for a change though?

1 word: Employment. Just my opinion but as long as there are jobs (job growth) its all good. New jobs / job security -> more money going into 401Ks and people spend. Job growth stops -> game over.

Minneapolis DRS2  13:08:50 GMT - 02/18/2020  
I remember something that red said a week or two ago (I think it was red). What is the easier way to make money (especially for the lazy man like yours truly)?

1. Speculate on when EUR/USD will turn around.


2. Sell EUR/USD like everyone has been doing for over 2 years, with an appropriate stop. No speculation. No guessing. The stop will protect your account, but if the trend is still your friend even after 2 years that won't be a problem.

swiss frank  12:51:46 GMT - 02/18/2020  
Don't know man. Maybe. Up to you. Try and see how.

Israel  MacroMicro  12:46:25 GMT - 02/18/2020  
yes Frank, you say it SSSOOO logic, time for brief unlogic?

swiss frank  12:33:48 GMT - 02/18/2020  
I know more people than you'd think that are still long/hedged eur vs usd from 1.12-1.13 from late 2018 early 2019. The thing is the move down has been SOOO SLOOOOW they never felt pressured to doubt the validity of these hedges. Now that the pair is pressuring 1.08 against the backdrop of a slowing EU economy, a central bank focused as much on climate change as anything else, and easier said than done calls for increased government stimulus they're just now starting to question the value of these hedges. I think we see a capitulation type move lower way before any chance of eur recovery with traction.

GVI Forex Jay Meisler  11:48:22 GMT - 02/18/2020  
Those who came into the year buying EURUSD with sights set for 1.15-1.17 only to see hopes dashed will be reluctant to jump in again with both feet unless/until technicals give the green light.

For me, I like to keep it simple and let the Amazing Trader guide me.

As I said, reaction to news will give the clue.

As Swiss Frank pointed out a few weeks ago, EUR has been the favored carry currency so that would need to change to reverse direction.

Does this mean bad EZ economic news is actually good news for the EUR (i.e. greater chance of fiscal stimulus)? Have to watch reaction to news to see if market picks up on this theme.

the euro has tended not to work that way in that bad news has always sent the pair lower. but what you might find is that if there are more such comments, any poor data may see a dip lower which is subsequently bought. i would caution we are a long way of from that however and i would still expect the downside gap to be filled unless they upped the ante and official noises if not actions were made.
