USDJPY tests 100 day MA at the 77.17 level

Posted: 30 Dec 2011 07:02 AM PST

GBPUSD also at weeks midpoint

Posted: 30 Dec 2011 06:46 AM PST

The GBPUSD is also up. This pair is up sharply today and like the EURUSD tests the midpoint of the weeks trading rangee at the 1.5525 level.  The 100 hour MA comes in at the 1.5542 level and this is the next upside target for the pair.

Looking at the daily chart for the pair, the GBPUSD has spent the last month of trading moving up and down. Yesterday the pair moved below the November/December low and failed to develop the expected momentum.  When the price can not go down, it goes up and with liquidity conditions dried up, it has not taken much.  In addition, the weaker housing data out the UK today failed to lead to a lower move. As a result, the squeeze is on.

EURUSD tests midpoint of weeks range at 1.2969

Posted: 30 Dec 2011 06:43 AM PST

The midpoint of the weeks range is being tested at the 1.2969 level.  Traders seem to be caught short and forcing the squeeze in the liquidity starved market.  The 100 hour MA is still a distance away (blue line in the chart above) at the 1.3002 level.  This along with the 61.8% of the weeks range at 1.2296 are the next upside targets for the pair.

Bobbys Corner-Open Market-December.30.2011

Posted: 30 Dec 2011 05:09 AM PST

Good Morning:

The last day of trading for 2011 saw the Euro continue to stay weak.  The euro fell below 100 JPY for the first time since 2001.
The weakness in the euro will continue as investors have  concerns over the regions debt crisis-and the regions ability to work through this crisis.
Commodities are also looking to see their first drop since 2008-as copper,cotton and cocoa led the declines.  Concerns that the European debt crisis, and the slow down in China’s economy may slow demand for commodities.

Asian equity markets were mixed-Europe is higher as are US Futures.

The NY End of Day Review and Preview for December 29th 2011

Posted: 29 Dec 2011 12:23 PM PST

EURUSD scoots sharply higher. No news as far as I can see.

Posted: 29 Dec 2011 09:00 AM PST

The EURUSD just shot up with no news as far as I can see. The price has moved above the 1.2940/42 resistance and stops were ignited. Traders will be eyeing this level now for bias clues (down to 1.2936 = 38.2% of the leg higher). If the price can remain above this area, the upside can continue. IF the level gives way, there could be a sharp move back lower on the failed break.

The liquidity conditions remain light and this may be contributing to the action just seen. Risk is increased when liquidity conditions are low.  The shorts in the market, just got an inkling of what could happen… quickly.
