That Worked – Trade Forex With Precision

Again….if you can find a way to pull yourself from the T.V long enough – you’ll see it eventually.

You’ve got to formulate your own ideas, else fall in line behind the sheep and pigs in front of you.

Greece. Not even close to being resolved.

China. Total economic stall/retraction.

U.S.A. Already in recession.

The Global Economy….already on its heels.

The bottom in oil, silver and gold will come SLOWLY…….. then rip your face off.

You continue to ease in…..you remain patient and look to add once we see USD topple.

Today is just another day….another win in along string of “many”.

Holding…all trades entered “short risk” YA……yesterday a.m

So It Goes – Leave It To The Pigs

No surprise to any of you……I’ll be taking the next trade “short risk” here through this morning.

With such wild peaks and valleys, it’s really anyone’s game so as per usual…small calculated moves capturing what we can…….leaving the rest to the pigs.

Pigs will eat anything you know….these days “headlines” being top of the menu.

It’s painfully boring to watch…distribution that is. Stocks being “distributed” to the unknowing drift of pigs…..hungry for even the tiniest bit of wealth.

They will just keep eating and eating, and they “will” eat anything.

Take a point er two here pigs……could be your last little nibble for a while.

 

 

 

 

 

Look At Yourself – Do You Really Have A Clue?

Strip away the television.

Scrap the Internet.

Cut the phone lines and burn the newspapers.

Then go take a look in the mirror……Go! – Do it! Go look yourself right in those “baby blues”……….and ask yourself.

Do I really have a f%(@king clue as to what the hell I’m doing?

Do I “really” know a single “f*$@Qking thing” of my own? – short of what “I’m told”?

Answer: Not.

Solution………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..Become a writer.

“Know Thyself”.

 

 

Nikkei Down -638 Points – Long JPY Trade Is Gold

The Japanese Stock Market ( The Nikkei ) is now down -638 points as Americans start “waking up”. China has cratered.

How are the long JPY trades going? – Absolutely golden!

The relationship between “risk appetite” and The Japanese Yen ( JPY ) has never been more clear, as short trades in AUD/JPY, NZD/JPY, CAD/JPY and USD/JPY have produced some 5-600 pips in only a few short days.

USD trades remain flat, as the continued concerns about Greece keep EUR ( the polar opposite of USD ) in a continued state of flux/confusion.

This is not about Greece. It’s about China. It’s about global appetite for risk…and it’s about the big boys making a speedy exit with profits in hand, as The SP 500 “continues” to make lower highs and lower lows ( the definition of a down trend ).

This is certainly not over. It’s not a dip to be bought, as we’ve been on the other side of the mountain for days now.

Protect yourself, as I “remain” short risk.

 

 

 

 

Down Dooby-Doo Down Down – You Know This!

The Japanese Nikkei ( you know……my favorite right?) Is currently down -422 points – and it’s only lunch time in Japan. That’s a 2% drop in a matter of 4 hours trading.

We touched on it last week when I (once again ) encouraged you to take note of the currency pair AUD/JPY and also suggested The SP would fade, and China would sink.

I expect tomorrow morning’s open will catch your attention…not to mention “the crater in your portfolio”, as markets tank, Japanese Yen sky rockets and The U.S Dollar continues to tank.

Wall St. already dumped their dollars ( on you retail ) so don’t look to see USD going anywhere but DOWN along with U.S Equities. You can use tomorrow’s price action as an indicator.

EUR is solid as a rock as of this evening. You’ll understand it…….some day.

We are deep in the money all the way around with the same underlying theme….risk off = Yen to the moon and USD to the basement.

No one wants to hold U.S Dollars ( as they are continually viewed as “worthless” ) when risk comes off…..it’s like a big game of musical chairs.

“Down Dooby-Doo Down Down” – The music is ending.

Don’t be the last to take a seat.

A Forex Plan Moving Forward – Risk Off

The down trend in Japanese Yen ( and subsequent rise in risk appetite ) now looks to be “officially broken”. We clearly understand the relationship here.

It would take an awful lot to imagine pairs such as AUD/JPY or CAD/JPY reversing here, and putting in new highs. Very unlikely.

I am looking to start ( in typical fashion – with single contract entries ) short positions in any number of JPY related pairs with particular focus on JPY vs AUD, NZD, CAD ( the commodity related currencies ).

In general I expect to see JPY rise…..and USD fall along side risk.

I would be wary of trades in EUR/JPY , CHF/JPY and perhaps even GBP/JPY as “if/when” USD continues to fall….the E.U related currencies will take inflows so…..bigger moves to be seen in JPY vs Commods.

Still holding USD shorts – YES.

This is pretty “macro” here everyone, as at some point you’ve got to pick a side, plan your trades and put that plan into action.

If markets continue to trade “sideways” in general well……these trades could just as easily wallow/sit in the mud as the continued “distribution” here across the top goes on.

Broad strokes have me seeing a lower low now firmly established in SP 500 suggesting we bounce, and look for the ultimate short entry ( long JPY vs Commods, Short USD against E.U currencies ) over coming days.

If the media has us waiting until Sunday for more bullshit coming out of Greece – so be it. Small entries as mentioned above can be made prior…with thought in mind of either “adding to shorts higher” come Sun/Monday…..or getting some orders in “underneath” these pairs..allowing momentum to pick us up.

I see the table set for a significant move lower in risk appetite so….the breakdown above gives you the plan across most of the major currencies “pending” this plays out,,,,and “doesn’t” just continue trading back into the range.

Have fun. Enjoy some sun. Stay out of trouble if you can help it.

AUD/JPY – Finally Shows It’s Hand

You guys keeping a close eye on AUD/JPY?

This thing moves with “risk” – ALWAYS.

Seeing it trade flat for the last 2 months – What might you discern from the ugly candle forming here today? Is it only “Australia related”? I think not.

Pull up Chinese markets and watch The SP 500 fade here shortly.

We very well may be on the cusp of ┬ásignificant move lower in risk, as we move into the weekend and Greece continues to take the headlines. Don’t be fooled.

Can you honestly imagine a single Central Banker or large scale institutional investment firm that doesn’t “already know” what’s going on? Common.

We don’t put on trades moving into a weekend like this……that’s full blown retarded.

We’ll pick up Sunday night….as there is nothing to see here today.

Get outside. Go drink some beer.

Dollar No More – A Global Perspective

I took this graphic from “somewhere” as it’s a great visual representation of what is “really going on” with the U.S Dollar and international trade.

Dollar_No_More

Dollar_No_More

Don’t be a dope. If the arrows and numbers where pointed in the “other direction” then perhaps you could build a case. The numbers speak for themselves. The U.S “strangle hold” on the world’s reserve, and in turn “slice of the pie” generated via currency exchange ( in order to buy commodities ) is over.

 

Investing Creatively – Get Outside The Box

I’m pretty sure most of you are a touch “confused” about what to do these days.

Markets “appear” to be moving along with little concern for the world around them, and complacency is literally – RAMPANT. You need perspective. You need to step back. You need to consider that longer term trends and normal market dynamics are still in play – however delayed via Central Bank intervention, money printing, media blitz etc..

And if you are still one of those that feels the media plays “no role” in influencing your investment decisions well…..you need to step out! You have fallen down the rabbit hole, and will eventually climb to the surface….with nothing.

Understand that in order for the machine to keep moving forward, your investment capital is essential. You will never answer the phone to hear your broker suggesting to sell. Never. Your capital paves the way for the bankers and MUST remain in the system for the system to work.

Have you fully come to realize what “negative interest rates” in the E.U really means?

The banks will hold your money at a – negative interest rate. That’s right – you pay “them” to keep your money.

Have you ever heard of anything more ridiculous? Seriously….”0″ interest is one thing….but negative rates?

All the while you line up to make deposits. You’ve lost your mind and don’t even know it, as your trust in the system has completely stifled your ability to “think creatively”.

And isn’t the what humans do? Don’t we make stuff? Don’t we build things? Don’t we reach further? Don’t we inherently create?

A “money eating machine” has been created…and you live inside it.

It doesn’t need to be this way.

Get outside the box.

USD Reaches Tipping Point – Wake Up!

You can remain focused on the “distractions” as Greece continues to take the headlines, or you can pull your head out of the sand and wake the f%k up.

USD is “make it or beak it here” so trades are locked and loaded….but I don’t pull triggers on Fridays.

Snippet from the members section:

We’d really be picking bottoms here as it’s “still” too early .

BUT.

Looking at a 5 minute chart of GBP/USD you’ll want to “at the bare minimum” see the 5 minute chart CLEARLY TRENDING UPWARD so….pull out to see att least a full 5-7 days of trading and plot the 200SMA to start.

You’ll want to see this turn “upward” regardless of the actual price level before entering.

Sure the level looks great “now” but from a safety perspective – let it start making “higher highs and higher lows” on this tiny time frame to even consider entry.

As it stands…the 5 min has yet to turn upward so…..consider how small / micro we are looking now.

I would rather see the 15 min “as well” th 1H trending higher before entry but…..we are getting very close to a point where “legging in” makes sense.

This can be reflected/applied against any USD related pair here, as we “hang” on the cusp of trend change.

Imagine hitting it on a 15 min time frame as still being “sooooo early” right?

No reason to enter here before the weekend. We’ll miss nothing.

 

Are you trading forex yet? Or are you getting completely smashed trying?

I figured.
