Like a Break out on the Yen Pairs
 
3 Attachment(s)
Looking of the Yen crosses to make a break out of the tight range they've been trading in for the past few hours. Watch for range breaks on EURJPY and the GBPJPY, particularly to the downside. Remember to watch the USDJPY as an indicator. I'd be happy to grab 40-50 pips on a quick move.

The GBPJPY broke it's range for a 50+ pip move down, and the EURJPY made a 40 pip move down after it broke below 122.00. Yes, I know these pairs have potential to move more, but I wasn't expecting a big move. That's why I said I'd be happy for a quick 40-50 pip move, which would test yesterday's lows. Remember not to get greedy. A 40% profit margin on a trade lasting no more than an hour, isn't a bad day's work.
You've got to grab those pips when you can!

Once the USDJPY broke below 90.15, it's move down made the EURJPY and the GBPJPY move 40 and 50 pips, for it smaller move of 19 pips. I liked how the USDJPY was stacking up along the 90.15 support, showing pressure on the sell side.

I hope some of you could see how I recognized that set up, and were able to grab a few pips.

Just so you're not in the red Ic, that's the most important! Good to hear from you! I like your CAD short. I've got 1.0525 as a strong support level, but I hope that breaks for you, and it should take a nice tumble!

Take Care Sir!

yeah no problem dad... capital preservation is always #1

i like to get into a zero risk trade asap (tp on half the trade then set the sl of the other to give a >0 outcome for the trade as a hole (if it gets taken out). i subscribe to the infinite yeild theroy although it's full application can be challenging.

right i'm off

EURJPY Consolidating, with gap short
 
3 Attachment(s)
Again, sorry for the lack of posts, but I'm seeing something setting up that has caught my eye.

The EURJPY is consolidating just above 127.00, with the EURUSD finding support at 1.3585 and the USDJPY at 93.50.

In the past, I've written about using the EURUSD and the USDJPY as indicators for the EURJPY. If the indicators break below their support levels, and the EURJPY breaks below the major pshych level at 127.00, we could see the EURJPY make a break down and try to close that gap down to 125.70. That would be a nice 100+ pip move. This next hour or two, going into the NY open is key.

I hope you all are well and having a prosperous 2010.

Cheers! Chuck

RE: Yesterday's EURJPY Consolidating, with gap short

Going into the NY session, the EURJPY did make a break below 127.00, as I suggested we watch for. Price fell to the next support area of 126.50 and rode that out until Tokyo open, where the Yen picked up some momentum and drove the Yen pairs down. This move closed the price gap, formed over the weekend, down to 125.70.

For you newbies, this 130 pip move, equates to a potential +100% profit on the trade. As I've said in the past, "Success is not in the quantity of trades you make, but rather in the quality of trades."

I hope this helped some of you. A video review of the trade is posted on the blog.

WOW!!! This brought back a lot of memories.... Been out of the loop for a while. U.S. regulations under Obama, just got so ridiculous, I moved in a different direction. Looking to get my feet wet again.
