The Effects of a Month of Negative Rates in Japan (News: 14/03/16)

The Bank of Japan shocked markets in January with negative rates. The policy had immediate effects on financial markets, even before it actually started on February 16.

Expected Sideways for Euro

The first half of Friday saw the euro down against the dollar significantly. However, by the end of the trading session in Europe, everything was back to how it was. The euro/dollar broke from the 112th gradient at 1.1079. Due to an empty calendar, the mood of the players was set by European and American share prices.

Short-term Trading Idea FX NZD/USD – Bull Speculation: Expected Break of 0.6896 Resistance

Trading opportunities for currency pair: the buyers broke the trend line on the weekly timeframe in February. A pinbar formed last week. At its current position, the pinbar is a weak signal for the strengthening of the NZD, but this isn’t worth ignoring. In this idea I expect to see a strengthening of the Kiwi to 0.7231 (38.2% from 0.6235 to 0.8834) using a double bottom pattern. Growth will cancel if the weekly candle closes below 0.6564.

US Dollar (Monthly)

Some traders prefer to trade currency itself instead of trading currency pairs. That means they analyze basket of currency individually and decide on getting long or short that particular currency. It’s also helpful for managing your currency basket and reducing the risk. What I like to do here is to analyze two or three base US Dollar currencies and decide on the direction of the move and then do the same thing with other major currencies as well. Currencies like GBP, EUR, AUD. So stick around.

ECB Ramps Up Stimulus But Disappoints Markets (News: 11/03/16)

The European Central Bank fired off a salvo of measures aimed at bolstering the eurozone’s fragile economy but markets brushed off the efforts, raising questions about whether it and other central banks still have the tools to bolster weakening growth and inflation after years of easy-money policies.

ECB Surprise from Draghi

On Thursday Draghi made the headlines. No central bank governor shifts the price like he can. The ECB decision and Draghi’s speech shot volatility on the euro/dollar up 3%. The same happened on 3rd December, 2015 when the EUR/USD rose 450 points to 1.0980 after an ECB meeting.
