Sharpening Your Edge Series: Pivot Points
Hosted by: Andrei Pehar of Fx Knight
Date: Wed, Jun 24, 2009, 15:00 GMT

Discover one of the best-kept secrets of bank traders. Pivot points and their medians have long been a favorite of the biggest institutional players, and since they are the ones who move the markets, once you know the likely places for their pending orders, you also know the most likely levels for reversals. But too many traders calibrate their pivots incorrectly since they lack an understanding of their meaning and how the markets work.

In this webinar fund manager and trading coach Andrei Pehar will take you inside the world of institutional trading and show you step-by-step how to set up and use pivot points on the popular MetaTrader platform. Attendees will receive links to a free copy of MetaTrader so you can practice what you learned (on commodities and stocks, not just forex), free pivot indicator downloads, and other free webinars to help further your learning.

The last three days have seen the EUR march higher. This has created a short term uptrend. Support is at 1.3910, with trend line support at 1.3860, and beyond that 1.3820, 1.3800.

The pair did manage to push above 1.3950 briefly but has now fallen back below. A move above is bullish and a further move higher would be confirmed if 1.3980 is surpassed. The profit target for that move is 1.4060-1.4080. Beyond that 1.4120 should hold through today’s session.


The pair continues to fall with 95.50 so far holding.

A quick move below 95.50 could occur moving to the 95.30 area. Beyond this there is no real support till 94.50. 95.00 is a profit target based on current moves so that is also a level to watch.

A push above 96.00, if it holds would target 96.50. A move higher is not expected with the current selling pressure, but 96.80 provides resistance beyond.
