  2. 2. EUR/USD DAILY TECHNICAL REPORTEUR/USD 28 October, 2011EUR/USD (Daily) BERMUDA TRIANGLE Bullish recovery holds above 200-day MA (1.4101). FAILED BREAKOUTS  EUR/USD’s short-term bullish recovery is holding steady above the long- term 200-day MA at 1.4101, following the recent positive EU news. The move has temporarily neutralised the larger bearish downtrend from April. BREAKOUT ZONE  Failure to hold above the 200-day MA will warn of an emotionally charged (1.4000) bull-trap and ultimately a sharp downside reversal through 1.3799 (26th Oct th low) and 1.3653 (18 Oct low), with scope into 1.3146 (Oct swing low).  Watch intermarket relationships across broad risk-related proxies such as 200-DMA the developed equity markets. The euro currently shares a high correlation (1.4101) TREND 2 YEARS of 0.85% with the S&P500 which has just climbed to an 8-week high.  Inversely, the USD Index is continuing to retrace (from its recent 6-monthEUR/USD daily chart, Bloomberg Finance LP highs) and is likely to find support at 74.10 and 73.40. USD INDEX EUR 57.6%, JPY 13.6%, GBP 11.9% USD INDEX 200-DMA CAD 9.1%, SEK 4.2%, CHF 3.6% (4 YEARS)  Speculative (net long) liquidity flows are also temporarily unwinding from (75.75) their recent spike highs (3 standard deviations from the yearly average).

  3. 3. DAILY TECHNICAL REPORTGBP/USD 28 October, 2011 Larger recovery back into 200-day MA (1.6137).  GBP/USD is continuing a larger recovery phase back towards the 200-day MA which is currently at 1.6137.  However, the 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. 200-day MA  A sustained break under 1.5632 is now required to increase the probability of a lasting lower high.  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. Instead GBP/USD is favoured to remain stronger then most.GBP/USD daily chart, Bloomberg Finance LPGBP/USD hourly chart, Bloomberg Finance LP S-T TREND L-T TREND STRATEGY   Await signal. www.migbank.com Bijoy Kar, Technical Strategist, E-mail: b.kar@migbank.com, Phone: +41 32 7228 424 3

DAILY TECHNICAL REPORTUSD/JPY 28 October, 2011 USD/JPY (Daily POST INTERVENTION USD/JPY still basing around its NEW all-time low.1 YEAR) RETRACEMENT (PIR I)  USD/JPY maintains a confluence of DeMark™ exhaustion bullish signals, after yet another new post WWII record low which was carved out at 75.82.QUAKE  These reversal signals are also following the second post interventionSHOCK! 83.30 retracement in 2011, which is holding around a multi-week base pattern. It is POST G7 also worth noting that our volatility measures remain very low and continue MOVE HIGH to favour a major breakout over the short-term horizon. 82.00  The medium/long-term view remains bullish, watching for a sustained move above our initial upside trigger level at 77.68. This would offer a resumption POST BOJ of the preferred new structural bull-cycle into the all-important psychological MOVE HIGH level at 80.00, near 80.24 (post BOJ intervention II high). 80.24  Keep in mind that such a scenario would help reactivate the longer-term technical bias, including prior monthly DeMark™ exhaustion signals, within the ending diagonal pattern, which was part of a major Elliott Wave cycle.

  5. 5. DAILY TECHNICAL REPORTUSD/CHF 28 October, 2011 Breaking below its long-term 200 day MA (0.8735).  USD/CHF has now broken below its 200-day moving average which is currently at 0.8735, having recently printed a lower high at 0.9083, following 200-day MA the recent break under 0.8881. While under 0.9123 a continuation of this weakness is favoured.  It is also noted that the current trading region is close to the location of the 50-week moving average, at 0.8927. 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 attractiveUSD/CHF daily chart, Bloomberg Finance LP again.

  6. 6. DAILY TECHNICAL REPORTUSD/CAD 28 October, 2011 USD/CAD (Daily) USD/CAD (Weekly) August High Bears push back under the psychological 1.0000 level. (1.0673)  USD/CAD’s short-term price activity remains negative, as the bears push back under the all-important psychological 1.0000 level (prior trading range).  Only a sustained close beneath here will extend bearish setbacks into the st 200-DMA CONFIRMATION long-term 200-day MA at 0.9813 and 0.9726 (31 Aug low). Only a close (0.9811) ABOVE 1.0680 OPENS LARGER beneath here will change the long-term positive view and encourage a sell RECOVERY trade setup in our model portfolio.  Meanwhile, positive momentum needs to push above 1.0264 and 1.0400 to rebuild the potential major upside reversal higher above the old resistance DEMARK™ level at 1.0673 (August high & Congestion zone).

  8. 8. DAILY TECHNICAL REPORTGBP/JPY 28 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. 9. DAILY TECHNICAL REPORTEUR/JPY 28 October, 2011 Testing the 107.68 level. th  EUR/JPY is currently tested the 107.68 (17 Oct high) level after pushing higher from its range just above the 104.75/99 floor. Provided this floor is 200-day MA not breached, scope is seen for a fresh swing higher.  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, aheadEUR/JPY daily chart, Bloomberg Finance LP of 92.80, levels not seen since 2000.

  10. 10. DAILY TECHNICAL REPORTEUR/GBP 28 October, 2011 Further swing higher anticipated towards 0.8886/85.  EUR/GBP is still holding above its 200-day moving average, which is currently at 0.8727.  The rise from 0.8530 is viewed as being a corrective structure with scope for 200-day MA 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. 11. DAILY TECHNICAL REPORTEUR/CHF 28 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   Await fresh trading signal. www.migbank.com Bijoy Kar, Technical Strategist, E-mail: b.kar@migbank.com, Phone: +41 32 7228 424 11

Silver (Daily) I DEMARK™ SELL SIGNALS  Silver’s latest price capitulation is a painful reminder to the investment community that lightning can strike twice. Note, this marks the second time silver has crashed, following its 30% fall last April. 200 DMA  The move was triggered following a DeMark™ exhaustion sell signal and (36.5125) II 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. KEY SUPPORT  Such a dramatic move traditionally produces volatile trading ranges. This (26.0700) 38.2% (32.3135) allows the market to have enough time to recover and accumulate renewed buying interest. Gold/Silver "Mint" Ratio 50%  Expect a large trading range to hold between $37.0000-26.0700 over the (26.9150) multi-week/month horizon, with downside macro risk into $21.5165 (61.8% Fib-1999 bull market) and $20.0000. This would still maintain silver’s long- 61.8% (21.5165) term uptrend and help offer a potential buying opportunity for the eventual resumption higher. 13 YEAR LEVEL UNWINDING 67% FROM  Continue to watch the gold-silver “mint” ratio which has now accelerated OVERSOLD TERRITORY higher by 67%, suggesting further risk aversion over the next few weeks.
