  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: More Weakness in Bitcoin

    October 31, 2014, 12:59 PM

    There was appreciation yesterday and the price was even pushed above $350 for a time, before declining back below this level at the end of the day. The volume was elevated and this made the action yesterday well-worth noting. The failed move above $350 could be indicative of a lack of strength. Is it, in our opinion?

  • Forex Trading Alert: EUR/USD – Double Bottom Or New Lows?

    October 30, 2014, 3:50 PM

    Yesterday, the U.S. dollar strengthened against other major currency pairs after the Fed said it would end its monthly bond-buying program but keep rates near zero for "considerable time". As a result, EUR/USD declined below the medium-term resistance zone, which triggered a sharp decline to slightly above the recent lows. Will they withstand the selling pressure and we’ll see a double bottom in the coming days?

  • Stock Trading Alert: No Clear Short-Term Direction As Investors Take Some Profits Following Recent Advance

    October 30, 2014, 8:25 AM

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Gold Declines Once Again As Expected

    October 30, 2014, 7:39 AM

    Gold and mining stocks declined yesterday in a rather profound way. The GDX ETF finally broke below its 2013 lows and the volume that corresponded to this action was high. However, silver almost didn’t react – why didn’t it? Will we see a rally shortly?

  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil – Has Anything Changed?

    October 29, 2014, 12:54 PM

    On Tuesday, crude oil gained 1.13% as weaker U.S. dollar supported the price. In this way, the commodity bounced off a multi-month low and closed the day above $81. Did this upswing changed the very short-term outlook?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bitcoin in Narrow Range, Might Not Be for Long

    October 28, 2014, 12:49 PM

    We continue to see the pattern of small moves around $350. Yesterday was a classic case of such a development with the price range relatively narrow and the volume still relatively weak. Today, we've seen more of that. But will these conditions last?

  • Forex Trading Alert: How Low Could USD/CAD Go?

    October 28, 2014, 12:34 PM

    Earlier today, the Commerce Department showed that durable goods orders fell 1.3% in the previous month, missing expectations for a 0.5% increase. Core durable goods orders (without volatile transportation items) dropped 0.2% in September, which was the largest decline in eight months. Thanks to these bearish numbers, the USD/CAD pair declined sharply, slipping below the last week’s low. Where could currency bulls find solid support?

  • Does Gold Always Respond to Real Interest Rates?

    October 27, 2014, 3:07 PM

    Generally, the real interest rates are negatively correlated with the gold price, i.e. the rising interest rates adversely impact the price of the yellow metal. According to a rule of thumb, whenever the dollar’s real short-term interest rate is below 2%, gold rallies, and whenever the real short-term rate is above 2%, the price of gold falls. However, there are many objections to the use of such a simple model, and generally to the adverse relationship between gold and real interest rates.

  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil - Sinking Or Rebounding?

    October 27, 2014, 12:38 PM

    On Friday, crude oil lost 0.68% as concerns over a global oversupply continued to weigh. Additionally, soft U.S. housing data pushed the commodity below $82 per barrel. Will we see another test of the strength of the psychologically important level of $80?

  • Stock Trading Alert: Mixed Expectations Following Last Week’s Bounce - Will Uptrend Extend?

    October 27, 2014, 7:21 AM

    S&P 500 index trades within its late September – early October consolidation as investors react to quarterly earnings announcements. Is holding short position still justified?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Decline Stopped, Possibly Temporarily

    October 24, 2014, 11:50 AM

  • Forex Trading Alert: USD/JPY – Currency Bulls In Charge

    October 23, 2014, 2:07 PM

    Earlier today, the Department of Labor showed that the four-week average of the initial jobless claims fell to the lowest level since May 2000. In response, the U.S. dollar moved higher and climbed to a two week high against the weaker yen. How did this move change the very short-term picture?

  • Stock Trading Alert: Uncertainty Following Sharp Rebound As Investors Take Short-Term Profits

    October 23, 2014, 8:11 AM

  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil - Has Anything Changed?

    October 22, 2014, 12:24 PM

    Although crude oil started yesterday’s session almost $1 below Monday’s closing price, the commodity rebounded in the following hours supported by solid Chinese and U.S. data. Did this increase change the very short-term picture?

  • Forex Trading Alert: USD/CAD - At Crossroads

    October 21, 2014, 3:08 PM

    Earlier today, the National Association of Realtors showed that sales of previously owned homes climbed 2.4% from a month earlier to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.17 million in September. These solid numbers supported the greenback and pushed the USD/CAD pair to the important short-term support. Will it be strong enough to push the exchange rate higher?
