    USDCHF to continue tracking Keltner channel lower

    Partner at 3 C ANALYSIS / 3cAnalysis
    United Kingdom
    Last week's USDCHF decline deepened Monday. A fourth down day in a row resulted, correcting more than 62% of the Sep-Nov rise. The scope of these moves mean intraday studies are overstretched but with USDCHF tracking the daily Keltner channel lower, rallies are expected to be temporary.

    Hi Bhaskar, I'm not certain if you're reading this correctly. Although the call has yet to be justified, it's a long way from the stop at .9695....

    Although no profit target met, both sell levels generated modest gains into the 16.00 GMT close.

    GBPUSD bounce from key average to extend

    Partner at 3 C ANALYSIS / 3cAnalysis
    United Kingdom
    Early trading yesterday saw Monday’s downside rejection overturned. The resulting decline took GBPUSD down towards the key 13-day moving average, although the lows were not entirely maintained. It is that bounce that, despite some selling in Asia, leaves our technical studies negative for this morning.

    Break below key averages points EURGBP lower

    Partner at 3 C ANALYSIS / 3cAnalysis
    United Kingdom
    This week's negative bias has already been confirmed. Yesterday's strong extension of Friday’s decline yielded sustained prices below the 13/100 day moving average area. We look for any profit-taking to be temporary and limited with the downside likely to continue to develop.

    Signals for sentiment are negative for EURUSD with the potential to retest this week's lows. Sell in the 1.1785/90 area and at 1.1805. Targets are 1.1764, 1.1743 or even 1.1717.

    USDCAD testing key average, sentiment bearish

    Partner at 3 C ANALYSIS / 3cAnalysis
    United Kingdom
    After three days of indecisive price action the bulk of yesterday's trading matched that uncertainty. But in the latter part of the day, after the upside had failed at marginally lower levels, selling interest returned to USDCAD. The result was the most negative performance for eight trading days and a test of the 13-day moving average.
