Just catching up with overnight news & reading about the flash crash in silver, allegedly caused by a 'fat finger', much like the recent plunge in gold.

Conspiracy theories aside these things do happen, and will let David tell you about his fat elbow experience, and what can happen when it makes contact with your keyboard!!! ... See MoreSee Less

The Forex Factory calendar is a great resource, but does not always carry all CB member speeches, and this week it's quite important we keep an eye on what members of the ECB are saying. This comes in the light of Draghi's recent effect on the euro. In addition Thursday also sees the release of the ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts.

If you subscribe to a specialist news service then these speeches will be announced in advance. The econ calendar at investing is pretty good, but what is perhaps more important is knowing where the members stand with regard to monetary policy. In other words are they hawks or doves, as it is any remarks out of character which will always have an effect on price action.

Here is a link which will identify current ECB members and where they sit on the hawk/dove scale.

As well as the Aussie we also have GBP in focus this week with yesterday's lower than expected manufacturing PMI number given as the reason for a sell off in sterling. But the fall in cable also reflected our expected bounce in USD. And as I write just waiting for the construction PMI release. ... See MoreSee Less

Yesterday's expected USD bounce has carried through most strongly to AUD/USD to reflect RBA's neutral tone following the interest rate decision.

Fall in AUD/USD has also seen the pair diverge from the other majors which so far have been confined to a relatively narrow trading range.

Having an understanding of how, and more importantly when, fundamental releases are likely to impact different currencies can help in deciding whether to trade (or not). And the key is in recognizing which releases are likely to impact a currency's flows, which very much depends on, not only what the market considers important, but also the economic cycle for the currency in question. And for the Aussie we must always keep an eye on commodity prices given the extent to which the Australian economy depends on this export market.

Price objective to downside for AUD/USD 0.7572, thereafter 0.7566 and thereafter 0.7540. However, with US markets closed for 4th July holiday we will have to wait for Asia to see what traders think about both the AUD and USD. ... See MoreSee Less

Those of you who come along to our webinars will have heard David & I stress how important it is for index and stock traders to keep an eye on the currency markets. Not not just the USD, but also the Japanese Yen whose performance will often signal a change of both short and longer term sentiment.

The pair we always watch is the USD/JPY, but there is another pair that correlates well with stock markets and that is the Aussie Yen, as the Aussie is considered a risk currency by virtue of Australia's status as a major commodity exporter, particularly to China.

Furthermore, there is no a Yen index we can follow to make life a little easier. This has been developed jointly by the Dow Jones and FXCM, and we also have one available from our Quantumtrading stable of indicators.

The session thus far has seen the AUDJPY in free fall with the pair now approaching a low volume node on the daily chart which will add additional momentum should the pair breach the key 83 level. Indeed the 4th Camarilla support pivot also sits at 82.90 renforcing the importance of this level.

All now hinges on the US session and whether traders decide to reverse the currency bearish Globex tone. ... See MoreSee Less

Bit of a drama in gold with the precious metal falling sharply allegedly because of a 'fat finger' no surprise to see buyers stepping in to buy on the fall in the 1230.00 per ounce region. And no surprise to see today's price action now trading within the spread of yesterday's candle.

But with month end and summer on the horizon it is monthly chart which is really interesting in that gold is once again rotating around the volume point of control in the 1250 per ounce region. A key level once again and confirming a lack of a firm direction for the metal. ... See MoreSee Less

Clear from the daily currency strength indicator that we should expect a USD bounce this week, which has duly occured. This has not mitigated longer term bearish tone for the USD but move higher should be sufficient to garner a few pips across the majors.

What's also interesting on the daily CSI is oversold nature of the JPY, particularly against the CAD which has, of course, reflected the recent bounce higher in oil. ... See MoreSee Less

You can use the currency heatmap in lots of different ways. Not only does it give us a global overview of all our 28 currency pairs, but it's brilliant for tracking flows into an individual currency, and whether those flows are consistent across the pairs. NZD is a case in point with NZDUSD at the top and GBPNZD at the bottom, and once a pair is at such an extreme we know it is only a matter of time before we get a correction.

How we trade that correction will depend on the structure of the chart, and our preferred tactics. ... See MoreSee Less

Price action on Yen pairs using renko highlights the buying momentum for the currency. CSI shows extent to which Yen is overbought on faster time frames, and likely to offer a trading opportunity. However, on 4hr CSI the Yen is still climbing strongly suggesting move lower may simply be a pullback, and question is, as always, is it worth trying to trade any such correction? And the answer depends on the pair and whether the range is sufficient; your time horizon and your trading approach.

As David & I always say in our webinars, there are many different ways to make money from the markets, and no general consensus as to which is best or most profitable. But there are only two ways to lose money: The first is not managing or controlling your losses and second, too much leverage. ... See MoreSee Less
