EURO at highest level in 2 years, where to next?


Recently the US dollar fell to a two-year low against the Euro, hitting 1.3830 on growing expectations that the US Federal Reserve will continue bond purchases next year and that there will be no tapering in 2013. Tapering is the keyword being mentioned lately, tapering refers to the FED stopping aggressive bond purchases therefore removing liquidity from the financial markets.

Recent European data has been weak with European growth slowing and unemployment and PMI coming in much weaker than expected. With such weak data hitting the wires we wonder if it is justified to be a EURO buyer at 1.38, we think NOT.

Fundamental analysis of the British pound

GBPpoundTrading the British pound has lately involved the need for a very skilled understanding of the stiff Bank of England and its new governor, Mark Carney. 

Carney had been expected to increase the size of the BOE's assets, by buying bonds, and therefore increasing money supply.  GBPUSD bears were looking forward to GBP weakness once Carney took office, as such bond buying would weaken the currency.  This theory brought GBPUSD down to nearly 1.4800 in early July 2013. However since then the cable has been ticking up, and is currently sitting at about 1.6000

US government shutdown enters 3rd day

Government_shutdownDay three of the US government shut down.

Politicians are still refusing to come to an agreement with president Obama and the government operations remain in limbo. Obama’s meeting with Congressional Leadership yesterday made it clear that he was not going to negotiate in order to reopen the government or raise the borrowing capacity of the United States, reiterating his view that the House should pass a clean government funding bill and not hold the economy hostage.

How is this whole fiasco affecting financial markets?!

Forex Accumulation Distribution Indicator

The Forex Accumulation Distribution Indicator is a momentum indicator that measures supply and demand by determining whether traders are “accumulating” (buying) or “distributing” (selling) a particular financial instrument by identifying divergences between price and volume flow. The mathematical formula is represented as follows:

Acc/Dist = ((Close – Low) – (High – Close)) / (High – Low) * Period's volume
