Trading notes for next week!

AUD/CAD have missed its weekly pivot point ~ 0.9755 and have touched his R3 point in Friday.

NZD/USD missed its weekly pivot point ~ 0.7300

AUDJPY missed its weekly pivot point ~ 79.50

AU/USD missed its weekly pivot point ~ 0.9955 and its currently @ top 800 bollinger band. Quite extended if you ask me.

USD/CHF have been outside lower 800 bollinger band and returned outside the bands. Possible continuation upward.

I still owe you charts of my short trades.

Just one trade idea. It's cable, on weekly chart. Huge triangle, I'd love to go short, but already have much position opened.

What a strongish of Aussie. I'm lack of ideas for my swing trading this week.

Eventually I've taken long at AUD/JPY, looking at 100 pips profit for now, this is the position trade I'm planning to build.

Still holding EUR/USD short, was twice + 200 pips and back, picture on the weekly haven't changed, so I'm having the same view on that.

Expect GBP to gain a little bit strenght, after much weakness this week.

Hi everybody!

It's 31st, last day of the competition :-) Wish you luck!

EUR/USD went north again, on higher inflation in Eurozone. I'm still sitting in it, now around break even, after beeing 3 times 200 pips in profit. This is insane now.

It looks like the market waits for ECB decision, and expectation of increasing interest rates by 25bp.

Alghough I thought this is already priced, it seems that it could push euro up and not good for me. I hope interest rates will stay at 1 pct.

I know trading is not about hope and pray, but at this moment technicals tell me different story, fundamentals different - and I'm kind of influenced on fundamentals lately.

One more long term analysis

Possible trend reversal?

Hi guys!

I've had an active weekend with my son, wife worked so I took care of him all day long.

Now back to business, looking for another adventure in the far right!

I've changed my charts a little bit, as I find more suitable for me. On my charts you can see 800 SMA black (slash), 62 EMA (orange) and 200 SMA (blue). Also, regular bollinger bands 1 and 2 SD, and regular MACD. Nothing special.

I'll pay more attention to the candles themselves, then to the indicators and things on my chart - they should come second. I guess when we put them on the chart, we forget about the price. Indicator becomes most important thing on the chart. So we get a dizzy picture.

For this week, I found something that I will be checking.

AUD/CHF is forming a huge triangle. Also, he totally missed it's last weekly pivot. Break above or below the triangle will be the entry trigger.

GBP/CHF is also in a ascending triangle, pushing the price slowly up with higher lows. For entry, I will wait for price to break the triangle, targeting 1,53.

AUD/CAD I've marked a pin bar, which we could see as a trend exhaustion. Nevertheless, price is consolidating in a broadening formation. A break above or (as I personally think) below formation will trigger my entry.

EUR/CAD - If we put this two candles I've marked together, it would be a pinbar, also right on the trend support line and 200 SMA. I think this could be a reversal point, also looking that the pair have totally missed it's last weekly pivot, I would be entering long targeting 1,3850 and above, when I see MACD line above 0.

Wish you luck

Addition.

AUD/NZD : Think sell is an option on this pair.
