Here’s the final part of the Monthly candles review. Over the last 18 months to 2 years I have been increasingly exposed to, and traded and invested in, BRICS and EM currencies. Mostly I was still operating as a pure US Dollar trader and just taking advantage of that period of immense US dollar strength. Anyway […]

Evening all, I trust you’ve all enjoyed a romantic Valentines Weekend. Clearly some of you have not, judging by the high stats of people viewing my site over this weekend!

Fellow traders, I was on TipTV this morning (Wednesday) talking about the pain being felt in Sterling. You can watch it here: http://www.tiptv.co.uk/finance/gbp-pain-tough-year-for-sterling-ahead/ I thought I’d write a post and add some charts about the situation. I talked about the monthly GBPUSD chart and how the monthly close of January 2002 was at 1.4105…and how […]

Hello traders, Well its the time of year to be jolly…but as is usual, my contrarian streak emerges and I’ll pour cold misery on your thoughts of peace and goodwill to all men!

That was quite a week eh? I shall write something more broad based over the weekend. However I wanted to draw your attention to one specific currency and idea: the NZDUSD. So I wrote a piece a month ago for Finance Magnates on the impact to markets of changes in the China one child policy and […]
