nzdusd27april2009

This is another trading idea comes out from my weekend chart scan.  NZDUSD is another short pattern, that is targeting 0.560-ish, 0.5570-ish, and 0.5520-ish as 3 targets.  These offer 1:2, 1:3, 1:4 R/R.  We have official cash rate and RBNZ rate statement released this coming Thursday, so watch out. I can be very wrong again, [...]

One USDCHF trade 23-April-2009

usdchf_trade_closed_oanda_23april2009

Short position of USDCHF was established at the same time as my EURUSD trade mentioned in the last post.  Technically, I was bearish about Dollar. Another classical text-book pattern. Profit target was hit on Friday with +2R , a perfect way to end the week. It has been a decent week with +7R. I am [...]

EURUSD trade closed 24-April-2009

Trading idea of Long EURUSD pays off today. Profit target was achieved and position was closed with +3R, or +200 pips (does pips count make me sound awesome? whatever…). I guess, patience played the major part of this position. Well, I should admit that, there were times that I really wanted to exit earlier. Fortunately, [...]

  At the end of Tuesday U.S session, I saw a nice short setup in USDJPY. Classical text-book pattern to me, and offered me 1:2 R/R.  Short position was established, profit target was achieved at the mid day of Asian session. Not too bad with +2R gain. Here is the…CHART! Well, forget about the MACD, [...]

Trading idea: EURUSD Long 21-April-2009

eurusd_4hr_21april2009

Firstly, the NZDUSD pattern failed last night, so, no trade was taken. Dollar had a good day, and it actually brought EURUSD back to daily support zone. I see opportunities to get in some Long positions. Orders are pending now, waiting for entry setup. Let’s see how it goes.  1:3 R/R setup.  Anyway, here is [...]

nzdusd19april2009

Here is a Free/Fatal trading idea. I am looking at NZDUSD, and I am seeing opportunity to establish Long position soon at around 0.5685 zone. This is a swing trading idea 1st target is around 0.584-ish while final target is around 0.599-ish zone.  It looks delicious to me. Let’s see how it works out later. [...]
