Thursday Morning Briefing

by The MoleFebruary 14, 2013

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.

Overnight the spoos have dropped toward their brand spanking new NLSL at 1509.75 – merely missed it by one tick. This is will be our line in the sand today as the lower line of our 100-hour BB will soon correlate. I would ignore all the noise in between and get positioned at the lower BB and of course near the 100-hour SMA.

I’m seeing several promising GBP related setups this morning. Here’s the GBP/AUD pair which is heading into a short term resistance cluster. I would be short here until we see a breach of the 25-hour.

There’s more – please step into my lair:
More charts and non-biased commentary below for anyone donning a secret decoder ring. If you are interested in becoming a Gold member then don’t waste time and sign up here. And if you are a Zero or Geronimo subscriber it includes access to all Gold posts, so you actually get double the bang for your buck.

Basically the same idea on the GBP/CAD…

… as well as on the GBP/NZD, although here the 25-hour is a bit further up.

And finally there’s cable. On all of them no hourly NLSL has been overcome for days – which speaks to the strength of the current downward trend (i.e. weakness).

AUD/CAD – nice 100-hour SMA touch. It has been breached before but only briefly – in general its Maginot line appears to be well behaved.

It’s been quiet on the commodities front but here’s crude which is now wedged between two converging ST SMAs. Either way there will be a breach. You all know my motto: You can run but you can’t hide!
