DislikedIgrok, do you have any specific way to calculate ATR?Ignored
DislikedThere is no need for making precise calculations. The best way of evaluating ranges is not algebraic but rather geometrical which means going by analogies and comparing the length of the bars virtually. A single glance at the chart is usually enough to get the idea which range is already excessive, which is just about average and which is still too short.Ignored
DislikedThank you for the explanation. Can you please explain what are unsatisfied divergences, I have never heard of before.Ignored
DislikedHi Igrok, what are your views on GBP/CHF now? I think last week telluv suggested it might be a diamond and is headed down. I'm not sure about the technicals but I think the pound has been sold too heavily in the past few months while swiss might suffer from carry traders.
Recent data from UK showed uptick in inflation, might mean BoE won't cut as much and as quickly.
I think many carry traders have ditched their JPY shorts as the one way bet on JPY has been going for too long and Japan is out of deflation so the BoJ might start talking about normalising again. I think many of these carry traders will now look to swiss as the financing currency of choice.
These combined make me favour a break of 2.1750 for GBP/CHF. What do you think about this and what does the chart say?Ignored
