That too.
Actually I am long both right now, but I chop in and out.
The Aussie200 is on a monthly algo, It has a low probability of failure, the Euro on a daily algo, so hopefully a quicker trade.

No. The Aus200 is dropping its guts. The Euro is doing well though.

When America is great again, greater than it's ever been before, the Aus200 should join the party.

I suppose astrology would probably require the least amount of effort, so I can see why you would find it appealing.

Probably a 50/50 call on each so you have a 75% chance of being right about at least one. Then again it'd be even higher if you consider it a "win" if either is higher at any point in the week.

In fact the monthly Aus chart is intact and cheap so this is a great time to invest.
The euro should get that target currently just 1.0741

It feels like we are almost entering a panic buying phase on Wall Street. It looks another decent leg up today. There could be a quick 7 or 8 percent! This is a feeling not a prediction.

Time to take profit on those long eur/usd at 1.1177
Maybe go short for a couple of weeks, but take profit anyway.

The Euro just hit 1.1530 US dollars, up about 10% from this recommendation.

Thank you Samson for demonstrating once more technical analysis works, and for the great profit we made.

No trouble at all, don't mention it.

There is a reasonable expectation US interest rates rise, and dollar strength continues, so this technical view is slightly contrarian.

I will be simply placing a stop loss at the lows of about 1.0330 and if the picture changes say when.

At a guess april or may.

Yes I made the comment that on fundamentals I would expect the dollar to do better than the euro.
That is why I prefer technical analysis, it is all I ever use for financial markets.

It was not april or may, nor june, but july.
I am not sure what prestige is saying.
This forum will thrive if people say what they mean and mean what they say.
I made a specific prediction exactly as I did with Apple, and only marplots took notice then. At what sign post will anyone here understand that technical analysis is a market beating facility?
It is not noble, it is not good, but inequality of income from birth, is neither of above. The Donald has lied and cheated his way to the office, you are subservients to ethical principles, so why not make easy money like super models?

First, super models work hard for their money.

Second, last time I checked you weren't making much money at all off technical analysis. You had a lot of excuses about why not, though.

I suggested buying the euro and why, there have been more than 200 page views since I updated yesterday, so maybe someone is being helped.

How many Euro did you buy, the day of your prediction? How many did you sell, yesterday? How much easy money did you make off this "prediction" of yours?

As I said, the thread logs predictions, they can never be altered.

No, I expect many of the forum skeptics find themselves between the horns of a dilemma.

On the one hand, there is a strong desire to point out the inanity of the posts being made by one particular person to this thread.

On the other hand, each post - even this one - really just feeds the troll.

So I'll go back to lurking - but like a car wreck its so hard not to at least look.

I see the dax has triggered a technical sell. This is interesting, grant some calls, buy some puts, or even better sell the open on monday for a ten to 15 day short trade.
Last 12246.
Easy money, if any one likes easy money....

From a fundamental perspective, everything is overcooked. Some NZ funds are 75% cash, this surprised me, but they are the best performing funds. I wonder what they know.

The dax is dropping as Technical Analysis predicted.
Interestingly, a German friend , (long resident in NZ), phoned me at the weekend out of the blue.
He stated
1. War is pending.
2. German 10 year treasuries are 0.5%, American 2.5%.
3. Interest rates will rise everywhere.

As always, he wants to short everything, he expects a global crash.
The funds in NZ I respect most have been 75% cash for some time, but hey, I am just a technical analyst.

Buy gold right now.
This is predicated on an algorithm that scans all markets, today gold is the strange issue of an ancient super nova, not much around, and pledges greatly exceed physical metal.

The monthly chart does not lie. I will tell you all when to take profit on this sublimely straightforward way to make easy money.

As always the forum logs.
The dax did pay out, gold will too. Don't forget I suggested euro/usd were cheap at 1.06, now 1.19.

But Americans are smart and dumb simultaneously.

Please stop selling guns to people.
