Freaky Forex Friday

Seems like most of you rats have finally turned into mindless credit card swipin’ shopping bags draggin’ consumer monkeys. Not the Mole – no sireee – all my Christmas shopping is done in July, when the weather doesn’t suck!

That’s more like it – pass me the Glühwein!! Alright, less of you means more goodies for me and I’m talking juicy short term setups – especially the Forex side is looking rather festive this morning. And unlike Santa the Mole is dishing it out all year – plus I favor you naughty ones.

2014-12-19_PA_briefing

Palladium – looking good here and I already grabbed a long with a stop below 789. With a bit of mojo perhaps that daily NLSL can be reversed today.

2014-12-19_AUDJP_briefing

AUD/JPY – it’s battling that daily NLBL but is also supported by the rising 25-hour SMA. Got to get out of the gate or it’ll slip lower again. I’m long here with a stop below 97.2.

More below – please step into my lair:

When There’s Blood In The Streets

You surely have come across the old aphorism coined by the Baron Rothschield, an 18th century British nobleman and member of the ultra secretive and original one-percenter Rothschild banking family: When there’s blood in the streets – buy property.

2014-12-16_fear

However that does not mean you should blindly step underneath a falling sword. Either you know something nobody else knows (which is illegal but clearly was the modus operandi of 19th and 20th century tycoons), OR at minimum you need to see some technical context that justify jumping into some lottery tickets. Given the level of fear across various verticals today I set out to take advantage of the situation. And I did find three charts that tickled my fancy. One of which I’ll throw out for free:

2014-12-16_crude_setup

You probably guessed it – crude. Not much context here on the daily but we are dangerously close to the 50 mark and that’s where we also find the lower 100-month Bollinger. Will we see 48, 45, or even lower? I really don’t know but wipe outs like these are usually where I start looking for some short term context. I do like the hourly panel (very left) and have taken out an experimental 1/2R with a stop below today’s lows. Heck if I’m wrong we’ll be pumping gasoline for free by the end of the year!

FYI – in that context: Here in Spain gasoline prices have barely moved despite a drop of crude from 104 to 54 in a bit over a month. I can’t say that I understand all the dynamics of crude production and refineries but I do know when I’m being gipped.

Anyway, two more lottery tickets below the fold:

Play these setups with only 2R combined max - if you want to be conservative reduce your exposure to 1R total. We are talking lottery tickets here people!

Monday Morning Briefing

Welcome to our morning briefing. Here we are reviewing short term setups ahead of the NYSE opening bell. If you are a scalper or swing trader then these setups may be of interest to you. As usual keep in mind that these are short term setups although they could be used as early entries for more longer term positions.

2014-12-08_NQ_briefing

Equities are hanging in the balance right now as I’m seeing ST support being touched on all three major index futures contracts. The most tasty IMO is the NQ as it’s on top of its lower 100-hour Bollinger. I’m long here but the odds are even and we could easily slide lower which would then become the theme of the day. My line in the sand here is NQ 4295 – below that I’ll be short with a stop above 4300.

2014-12-08_AUDJPY_briefing

AUD/JPY – similar to the EUR/SEK it’s been gyrating in a very nice channel pattern. I’m tempted to grab a long if it decides to descend toward 100 again. Stop would be placed at the low of the candle which breached and reverted the 100-hr BB (I hope that’s clear, just look at previous touches and it’ll become crystal).
