9/30/2010 Mid-Noon Update

PA/volume has slowed down some, but not enough to prevent new trade opportunities! I have been away since late morning, but the 100 EMA break @ 1 AM proved to be worth upto 30 pips (if you are off my recommended 10 pip TPs). I wouldn't recommend trading the mid-afternoon session, as PA has essentially plateaued and won't be going anywhere until later tonight. Watch for a breakout move to test yesterday's high of "114.176" tonight.

Detailed Long entry point @ "113.559" and break of 100 EMA

Market has plateaued, recommend a no-trade until tonight

Watch for breakout "Friday" moves later tonight into tomorrow morning. Expecting a test/break of yesterday's high of "114.176"

09/30/2010 AM Update

PA opened very close to yesterday's high (<10 pips). In my previous post, I was anticipating a test and break of the 100 & 300 EMAs around the next open (e.g. TODAY). It took one test and mild rebound before it broke the 100 EMA and then flew through the 300 EMA as well with no major resistance.

My entry was slightly below the 100 EMA above the FPV @ 113.929 where I had my limit order from yesterday. I normally don't try to "ride the wave" throughout the move, and settle for the first major pivot point to get out, in this case S1 @ 113.652. Even though PA continued downward, matching the previous magnitude when I traded, we all must sleep.

For those pulling an all-nighter, you would have seen PA fly past yesterday's low, and hitting MS4 for a total of about 90 pips. PA has since rebounded off the MS4 and is piercing the 100 & 300 EMAs to the upside. Currently looks like a good long opportunity, but I'm going back to bed, done for today ;)


Short signal @ 113.929 with PA passing through 100 EMA significantly = 25 pips TP @ S1 "113.652"

New Buy signal @ 5:30 AM, PA passing through 100 & 300 EMAs. Look for FPV and Open as resistance points.

Good Luck to those that trade this.

New explanation for blog

Hey guys, someone commented earlier that must have stumbled onto this blog that it was confusing. Essentially, I trade the FX market (Foreign Currency Exchange). The majority of my postings have to do with either shorting or buying the EUR/JPY pair.

I utilize a MT4 client linked with my broker, InterbankFX in order to place trades. I use a pretty simple (more simple than some of my other charts) setup with a 13,100 and 300 EMA to gauge trend strengths on the 5 minute chart. In addition to the EMAs, I have a "high-low" indicator that tracks high-probability support and resistance lines to compliment moves along the EMAs.

Finally, I have a "scalping" indicator script on my candles that models PA swings up and down irrespective of the EMAs.

Lately I've just been doing chart commentaries until I get more followers. I don't want to waste my time posting trades if no one is viewing them to offer their sentiments on market strengths.

Thanks for all the views and comments guys!

09/29/2010 EURJPY 5m Update

PA opened 10 pips under 09/28 high, and immediately tested and broke @ 8:15PM (PA had been above 100 & 300 EMAs since earlier in morning from 9AM). Tested MR2 pivot and retreated quickly down to 100 EMA; flirted till 12:35AM and broke below 100 EMA and past MR1. Broke 300 EMA and tested FPV; moved down for 30 pips. Rebounded off FPV to break up through 100 & 300 EMAs, past open to test yesterday's high of "114.003". Rebounded again past 100 & 300 EMAs to test FPV once again. Past 100 EMA move for 20 pips. Rebounded off FPV to break 100 & 300 EMAs to test Open, flirted with 100 & 300 EMAS (no significant breaks). PA guided by 300 EMA currently, ranging between yesterday's high "114.003" and 300 EMA value. So far, 4 tests of yesterday's high have rebounded downwards. Expecting significant break of 300 EMA before Close. Watch for break of FPV "113.525" to confirm downtrend.
