    If the site does indeed closedown or simply stop functioning (24th) then to all the regulars onsite that I have had the joy of meeting and learning from over the years may I wish you every success with your trading.
    As an off topic posting may I highlight the divergence on Bund to 10yr Notes yield disparity....@ 2.6% to put this into perspective when the Euro project started the spread on yield was thus far apart so seasoned spread/arbitrage traders out there may want to track this pair IMHO. Remember that we are trading opposing markets in the near term duration and that Notes have a greater rate of change so when building your 1:1 positional arbitrage account also for rates of change and simply skim your net gain. VIX can only remain at extremes for a certain length of time before an average range occurs bringing the VIX back to normal ranges.....I suspect that is the same between Bund and Bond ! Trade for yield normalisation or even faster price distortion.

    EURUSD - Weak Setback. Buyers to Return
    Yesterday's bearish call had some limited success. But the downside was limited and the latter part of the day saw investor buying return. Net movement, for a 2nd consecutive day, were limited and so signals for sentiment cannot be strong but the weekly Bullish Morning Star remains an important background element.
    We look to Buy at 1.1695 and 1.1683
    Stop is 1.1652 offered
    Targets - 1.1719 and 1.1749
    Closing 4 pm London time

    USDCAD - Negative reversal through key average
    Tuesday’s report highlighted underlying positive sentiment but a lack of a buy signal. That proved justified as our Buy at 1.3073 was virtually the low of the day. USDCAD still found further selling at the end of the day in a move that took prices to test the 13 day line. That important point was only marginally breached but, despite minor gains in Asia, is enough to leave our intraday technical studies negative.
    We look to Sell in 1.3075/80 area and at 1.3105
    Stop is 1.3137 bid
    Targets, 1.3040, 1.3020 and 1.3000

    I am in a WhatsApp group for traders. There are only 2 europeans and one US citizen. All the others are Asians (India, Pakistan, Malaysia, Indonesia, China). They are nice guys and some of them are very good in trading. Should this fit you let me know and we can add you to the group. Just Forex and metals.

    USDCHF - Capped by key average
    This week's report highlighted that although there was a lack of selling pressure last week, the 13 day mvg avg was capping any buying. This proved relevant Monday as USDCHF was sold strongly from that average line. The market moved to the most negative point for 3 weeks Although the proximity of the 13 week mvg avg is a concern and an early move lower is needed as confirmation, this morning’s call is for lower levels.
    Sell at .9875 and .9898.
    Stop is .9917 bid
    Targets; .9857, .9841 and .9822

    USDCHF - Capped by key average and Marabuzo line
    For a 3rd day in a row trading in USDCHF was muted Wednesday. The market remains below the crucial 13 day mvg avg but lacks the selling pressure to break below .9900. This price action does not create strong signals for sentiment going into Thursday but our intraday technical studies are assessed as negative.
    Sell in .9920/25 area and at .9950
    Stop is .9992 bid
    Targets - .9884, .9857 or even .9822

    EURUSD - Upside failure to deepen
    Asian gains extended Friday’s improvement, modestly. But those highs were rejected in Europe with profit taking moving EURUSD back towards the key 13 day mvg avg. That point did not break but is being tested again in Asian trading. Until/unless that level is clearly breached then signals for sentiment cannot be strong but they are assessed as mildly bearish.
    We look to Sell at 1.1685 and 1.1718.
    The stop is 1.1751 bid.
    Downside targets; 1.1659, 1.1627 and 1.1596

    Marran. I don't look closely at risk/reward. My levels are technical only and I expect those trading these ideas to alter exposure accordingly if they don't like...

    thanks, Alan appreciate the answer. Profitable trading is normally built on risk to reward and I always mover to break even when practical
