Biography
Avoided anything financial for my first 30 years, then gradually got into shares. Being in IT I was trading shares electronically in the 90s and had one of the first NatWest online accounts. Now trading is part of my life, but only part: There's plenty else to keep me occupied (and diverted!).

    Trade View: Building up gold shorts vs the USD, into the Fed hike

    Global Macro Strategist / Saxo Bank Group - Singapore Hub
    Singapore
    Building up short golds vs. the USD, into the Fed hike. In a trade that worked well for the MM book into the March Fed hike, we are looking to replicate what seems to be a high probability pattern in this hiking cycle so far, i.e. the under-performance of previous metals into Fed meetings where there are hikes.

    Could you transfer this strategy to options trading in XAUUSD?

    Hi. A while ago, I think you mentioned ISS as an undervalued share. They have been languishing ever since. Do you have a view or further info now? Thanks.

    I find the 5 minute gives greater "definition" the Wave sequences which I try and interpret.

    Personality a factor in trading approach

    Personality a factor in trading approach
    There are many different ways to approach trading, and often it is someone's personality that decides which is the one they choose. One approach is positional trading. Here, risk and money management is key – profits are not allowed to “come too far back” and losses are not allowed to persist.

    Since calling the end of Gold’s multi-year Bear market in early December Of last year, Gold has rallied very nicely indeed. For those who missed this rally there may still be another really worthwhile opportunity coming up. My “big picture” Gold Analysis appears below.

    Hello Max. What about the 'head-and-shoulders' pattern that has formed in the daily chart between February and now? Doesn't this suggest that there is further downside? Some...

    Hey John, I read your stuff with great interest, and have taken a small position shoring AUD (after it had peaked this morning), but why is there no mention of GOLD on Trading floor, nor on the NEWS stream that I have on my Saxo Trader platform? Luckily, I've been watching this and was in at 1130. It's now smashed the resistance at the falling channel top and looks like breaking through to 1200.

    Do you still believe in this long position and do you consider to enter again at lower levels?

    There's a lot of losses going on - luckily I stayed clear.

    Sliding Aussie dollar a hostage to global forces

    Sliding Aussie dollar a hostage to global forces
    Australia's economic growth came in under market expectations, at 2% year-on-year, well below trend. There is a good case for the Austraian dollar to "adjust" a lot more yet – that is, fall. Money markets maintain a 100% chance the RBA will cut its 2% policy rate by 25 basis points by the end of the year.

    Max, why has the Aussie just popped upwards? It was in a gentle slide, supported at 0.70 and in down trends against USD and JPY.

    short term it looks to me a lot like market makers pulling stops before heading south.

    I am so fed up with you guys talking rubbish - 1.30356 at this moment. Luckily I didn't get into the cross. Looking at the advice and tips, about 70% of them are plain wrong, and you are paid to do this stuff!
