    Today's Trade: Wednesday 23 October

    Concerns over the Chinese banking system have emerged overnight, causing a large sell-off on most major pairs. This could offer some opportunities to buy back into the market at a better price. I am watching the NZD/USD very closely - but the trade to take is based on the GBP/USD. We have the...

    Today's Trade: Tuesday 22 October

    All eyes are on today's employment figure from the US, as it was delayed during the government shutdown. Expectations are that a taper is off the table, so even a positive move could struggle to move the markets significantly. Traders are conditioned to sell the USD right now, so anything less...

    Today's Trade: Monday 21 October

    After a wider than expected trade balance from Japan overnight, the yen weakened slightly against most major currencies. Look for this to continue throughout today's session as the price of the yen pairs pull back, giving buying opportunities from key levels of support.

    Today's Trade: Friday 18 October

    After some decent data from China overnight, along with comments from the RBA stating that a higher Australian dollar is sustainable and that a rate cut is not required, traders could be looking for pull backs on the AUD/USD to trade it long again. However, caution is recommended considering the...

    Today's Trade: Thursday 17 October

    The US has found a solution to the debt ceiling saga. The focus for traders will now be new economic data released over the next week. They will now be paying close attention to whether the Fed will cut its stimulus programme, with many traders betting against a taper after the past couple of...

    Today's Trade: Wednesday 16 October

    After the collapse of talks yesterday, it looks as though US debt ceiling negotiations will go right up to the last minute. The next couple of days could be hugely volatile and unpredictable for the USD. I am staying on the sidelines with the USD pairs until some sort of clarity or resolution...

    Today's Trade: Tuesday 15 October

    After positive Chinese growth estates overnight and the RBA all but ruling out a rate cut until next year, look for opportunities to buy AUD during today's session on both dips to sessions lows and breakouts of session highs.

    Today's Trade: Monday 14 October

    After a breakdown in talks over the US debt ceiling, we could see some USD weakness and a flight to safety currencies such the yen and Swiss franc. However, there is also a bank holiday in North America, so volumes could be light and volatility increased. With this in mind, trade with caution...

    Today's Trade: Friday 11 October

    After more comments overnight suggesting that a resolution could be arriving soon in the US, along with conflicting reports suggesting that an agreement is still out of reach, we can expect volatile moves in all markets. Due to this and the fact we are heading into the weekend, I am staying out...

    Today's Trade: Thursday 10 October

    Expect volatility today as the market starts to feel slightly optimistic about a resolution being agreed in the US – and the fact that recent FOMC minutes show that tapering could start this year. This had given overnight strength to the USD – bit the risks still remain as nothing concrete has...

    Today's Trade: Tuesday 08 October

    After extensive profit taking overnight on the safe haven trades and very little in the way of economic data, traders will be monitoring the US government and whether they can reach a deal to avoid a debt default. As long as this situation remains unresolved, look for opportunities to sell safe...

    Today's Trade: Monday 07 October

    With no resolution on the debt ceiling limit situation in the US, look for traders to be playing safe haven trades. Watch out for selling opportunities on the USD/JPY pair.

    Today's Trade: Friday 04 October

    After recent USD weakness and traders fleeing to safe haven currencies, we are looking for trading opportunities on the USD/JPY pair throughout today's London session as it pulls back upwards and rallies.

    Today's Trade: Thursday 03 October

    After hawkish comments from the RBNZ overnight about raising interest rates, look for buying opportunities on the NZD/USD during today's London session.

    Today's Trade: Wednesday 02 October

    After negative data overnight from Australia, traders will be looking for selling opportunities on the Australian dollar. Look to sell AUD/USD or AUD/JPY, especially on the pull-backs. However, be careful of the ADP data coming from the US later today, which could cause some volatility in the...

    Today's Trade: Tuesday 01 October

    After political deadlock in the US and a partial shutdown of their government, combined with neutral comments from the RBA, traders will be looking for buying opportunities on the AUD/USD pair. Look for breakouts from the session highs, or pull-backs to the 0.9375 area.

    Today's Trade: Monday 30 September

    Weaker than expected manufacturing data from China has put further pressure on the Australian dollar - and with concerns growing over the possible government shut-down in the US - traders could be looking to flee to the safe haven currencies during today's session. Look for further selling...

    Today's Trade: Friday 27 September

    After comments overnight from the Bank of Japan regarding the proposed corporate tax laws, we have seen the yen strengthen. If we couple this with a weak Asian session performance of the Australian dollar, we can look for for selling opportunities on the AUD/JPY currency pair throughout today's...

    Today's Trade: Thursday 26 September

    After overnight speculation that the Bank of Japan will add to their stimulus plan on October 1st, traders have been looking to sell the currency. Look for buying opportunities on the USD/JPY through today's London session, from either a breakout of the session highs or dips into the session lows.

    Today's Trade: Wednesday 25 September

    After a quiet overnight session expect today's trading to be dominated by upcoming economic events. We should be paying particular attention to the US data being released as this will give traders clues about the Fed's stance on tapering. Good data should see the USD rally, while negative data...
