A sustained break under 1.5632 is now required to increase the probability of a lasting lower high near this key retrace. 200-day MA  Strategy is still hampered by a lack of reliable structure, largely due to the range bound nature of the market in the medium-term time frame. Should this continue then a larger recovery phase, back towards the 200 day moving average would come back into focus. Remaining neutral is deemed best for now.  GBP/USD has already experienced a large devaluation versus the US Dollar, therefore any further strengthening in the US Dollar may not see the full participation of GBP/USD.

While under 0.9123 a continuation of this weakness is favoured. 200-day MA  It is also noted that the current trading region is close to the location of the 50 week moving average, at 0.8949. Thus, a continuation of weakness would also warn of a breakdown of the recent recovery structure. However, back under 0.7712 is required to change the long-term bullish bias.  The recent break lower also opens up the potential for a further extension towards 0.8600, where a return to a bullish bias would become attractive again.USD/CHF daily chart, Bloomberg Finance LP S-T TREND L-T TREND STRATEGYUSD/CHF hourly chart, Bloomberg Finance LP   Buy limit 3 at 0.8600, Objs: 0.9000/0.9200/0.9316, Stop: 0.8500 Bijoy Kar, Technical Strategist, E-mail:, Phone: +41 32 7228 424 5

(1.0673)  USD/CAD is still holding around that all-important 1.0000 level (psychological level and prior trading range).  Positive momentum needs to push above 1.0264 and 1.0400 to extend the 200-DMA CONFIRMATION recovery higher above the old resistance level at 1.0673 (August high & (0.9811) ABOVE 1.0680 OPENS LARGER Congestion zone).

The bears need to confirm beneath 0.9388 (04 Oct low & KEY ZONE structural level) to unlock a much larger decline into 0.9220 and 0.9144 (38.2% Fib-2008 uptrend).  Elsewhere, the Aussie dollar remains stable against the New Zealand dollar.

  • 8. DAILY TECHNICAL REPORTGBP/JPY 25 October, 2011 Range bound short-term, favouring a return to 122.65.  GBP/JPY saw a minor break under 120.34 which failed to hold, reaching 120.00. This is suggestive of the potential for a further recovery leg higher 200-day MA to test the region near 123.00.  The structure present since 116.84 is deemed corrective, with scope for a final swing higher to complete this corrective phase. However, a sustained push under the recent low at 120.00 will warn of resumption of weakness back towards the floor near 117.00. However, an eventual return to 116.84/98 is expected, below which would open up an extension towards 115.00 immediately.  A sustained break over 123.31 is required to change the current bearishGBP/JPY daily chart, Bloomberg Finance LP bias. Should this take place a larger corrective phase higher would then be anticipated.

  • 9. DAILY TECHNICAL REPORTEUR/JPY 25 October, 2011 Consolidates above the 104.96/104.99 floor.  EUR/JPY continues to range just above the 104.96/99 floor, following initial support over the last few sessions. Provided this floor is not breached, 200-day MA scope is seen for a fresh swing higher to re-test the 107.68 level. However, the larger structure present since 114.18 favours the formation of a lower high close to 108.03, for a return to re-test 100.76.  Failure to hold under 108.03 will warn of a larger recovery structure, negating our medium-term bearish bias. Also, if a push over 108.03 can be sustained this will bring into focus a potential false break lower out of a falling channel in the daily timeframe.  A move under the annual low would open up an extension to 97.50, ahead of 92.80, levels not seen since 2000.EUR/JPY daily chart, Bloomberg Finance LP S-T TREND L-T TREND STRATEGYEUR/JPY hourly chart, Bloomberg Finance LP   Sell limit 3 at 107.90, Objs: 106.90/104.00/100.00, Stop: 109.00 Bijoy Kar, Technical Strategist, E-mail:, Phone: +41 32 7228 424 9
  • 10. DAILY TECHNICAL REPORTEUR/GBP 25 October, 2011 Further swing higher anticipated towards 0.8886/85.  EUR/GBP continues to trade close to the 200 day moving average over recent sessions. However, the bigger picture is dominated by the recent failure to hold over the key high at 0.8672. Thus the rise from 0.8530 is 200-day MA viewed as being a corrective structure with scope for a lower high to form closer to the old 0.8886/85 double top. So, although further short-term strength may follow, supply is favoured to manifest near 0.8885.  Should this move be realised, it would also take us close to the upper end of the recent trading range. There is an increased probability of general range bound trade, thus short entry at higher levels is also supported by the potential of a return to a period similar to that between 2003 and 2007 (notEUR/GBP daily chart, Bloomberg Finance LP shown).  A move back over 0.8960 is required to neutralise our mild bearish bias, in a generally rangebound environment.

  • 11. DAILY TECHNICAL REPORTEUR/CHF 25 October, 2011 Fails to garner momentum close to channel resistance.  EUR/CHF failed to garner momentum after meeting supply close to the 200-day MA resistance of an hourly rising channel. The subsequent weakness is currently testing the support of this same structure. A failure to find support here would warn of a larger fall back down to the 1.2000 level.  Although bullish for the time being, it is expected that the 1.2500-1.3000 zone may limit the current recovery phase from 1.0075. It is anticipated that the market’s willingness to trade with the bias of the SNB may exhaust should this trading region be met, as further gains in this cross are likely to become more dependent on economic releases.  A sustained move under 1.2024 will alter our near-term bullish bias.EUR/CHF daily chart, Bloomberg Finance LP S-T TREND L-T TRENDEUR/CHF hourly chart, Bloomberg Finance LP   Long stopped.

I  Silver’s latest price capitulation is a painful reminder to the investment Silver DEMARK™ (Daily) SELL SIGNAL community that lightning can strike twice. Note, this marks the second time silver has crashed, following its 30% fall from April this year.  The move was triggered following a DeMark™ exhaustion sell signal and II 200 DMA (36.5125) has now wiped out almost 50% of silver’s prior gains (taken from Silver’s all- time high at 49.7900) which was last seen in 1980.
