By Laurence | Jun 01 2016

Hello Traders, We are proud to announce that we have moved into our new office in Shibuya, Tokyo. I can only describe it as something out of Batman. On the outside it appears to be a typical little Japanese shop complete with our own “garagara” shutter. But on the inside…

DX US Dollar Update

By Steve | Oct 24 2015

DX15-daily-oct24

With the solid move off the mid October low under 94 to now breaching 97 with the help of Draghi and the Chinese central bankers, the question is now whether we have an important bottom in place or we are just working on an interim top. The area we find…

YM Dow Update

By Steve | Oct 15 2015

YM15-daily-oct14

The YM took a little hit in the US session from inside the target zone 17,000-17,500. Admittedly, it's a bit of a wide zone, but wave B's are notorious monsters to pinpoint their ends with. In any case whether we get another swing higher to complete things a bit closer…

GC Gold Update

By Steve | Oct 15 2015

GC15-daily-oct14

The main 1194 target is only 5 dollars away with the 1189 high, which has me very much alert to any turns this coming week. The chart says things best and whilst nothing material has changed at all, the 1220 area is one I'd like see hold for the downside…

Nikkei15-mthly-sept29

The Nikkei has always been a great instrument to trade in my opinion, but you've got to be ready to handle volatility. Whilst the chart below shows the longer term structure and what I'm looking for, the short-term can be a whole different story. I don't go into detail on…

YM Dow Update

By Steve | Sep 13 2015

YM15-mthly-sept11

The Dow's recent price action leaves a couple of counts viable. One of them has the wave 4 red bottom in and we're already on the way higher. This would seem to fit sentiment which has quickly turned bearish, a typical move lower would usually have the crowd holding onto…

TY ZN 10Yr Treasury Notes in Big FOMC Week

By Steve | Sep 13 2015

TY15-mthly-sept11

This is the week that much of the summer seems to have been waiting for, with FOMC Rate Decision due on Thursday the 17th. Just for the record, I am vary wary of the 1st of October as well from a timing perspective as well as the Sequester issue which…
