    Hey folks,

    Monday did see some recovery in EUR/USD, but we failed to rally past the 1.3425 level so far. It looks like it's going to give way though, so it's not such a bad idea to start considering some longs. The odds have tilted towards this being a further bounce retracement as a wave C higher that should at least make it to the 1.3692 highs, and most probably the 1.3800-1.3900 area I had been sighting last week. Prudent longs here at market (1.3380's), on a slight further dip (1.3340-55 trendline forming on hourly chart), or on more concrete confirmation with a break through 1.3425 all make sense given there's 300-400 pips of profit potential with maybe 50-100 pips risk and decent odds.

    It's still not very certain we'll see this EUR/USD bounce until we can squeak out above 1.3425 and hold there though. If this does end up working and you happen to miss out on it, don't fret... it will set up for an excellent sell likely in the 1.3800-1.3900 range that should have a lot of downside potential.

    On stocks, there was an early rally RIGHT to 1220 barely hitting my 17 point TP on my futures trade. For now, there's very likely going to be a bit of a pullback near 1195-1200 and then a continuation higher to modest new highs. I plan to reenter long stocks with a buy limit at 1200.25, with an SL at 1189.75 (10.50 points) and TP at 1219.50 (19.25 points) which is almost 2-1 reward to risk.

    There was no tradable news on Monday. In news Tuesday:

    1000 US Consumer Confidence (about 53.5 expected) - This news can definitely move the market when there's a big surprise, but it's often quite muted when somewhat close to expectations. Look for 5 or more on the deviation to make a solid impact on USD/JPY.
    If it comes out at 59 or higher, USD/JPY should rally 40 pips.
    If it comes otu at 48 or lower, USD/JPY should fall 40 pips.

    2130 AU CPI Trimmed Mean q/q (0.6% expected) - This report hasn't surprised the markets in awhile, so a decent deviation here without conflict should get things moving well on the AUD.
    If it comes out at 0.8% or higher (and other CPI numbers are as expected or higher), AUD/USD should rally 40 pips.
    If it comes otu at 0.4% or lower (and other CPI numbers are as expected or lower), AUD/USD should fall 40 pips.

    See what i mean. Where are these big drops coming from? EVERY one has some sort of signal that the pull back should have come into play by now on the EURUSD. Not like i want the market to move back that way...just when you pull all the strings together you see a pull back and when you pull these ones its dropping? Bizarre...

    Nice thing about trading is its always keeping you on your feet and the brain active.

    Cheers

    Yah, like I had been saying, we needed to see a rally up through 1.3425 to confirm the bounce was legit. I just got a little ahead of myself calling it early where it never confirmed.

    You are right, we could be at the bottom 1.30 - 1.33 ( For now ) of the 3rd wave. But the news from today is what pushed it even further. I do hope it makes a move back up to the 1.37ish area. But ill just sit and wait for some info from you and the news while i watch UFOs on youtube.

    Cheers

    I do enjoy reading his point of view and thinking wherever he may feel it may go up or down. I emphasize you that everyone need to check their own charts whatever it may tell you. Sir Pipsalot may think it may be good buy or sell in some certain days but it may give some people wrong impression and think Sir is like a predictor. Again, please check with your charts if it shows clear momentum and trend that may favor or confirm Sir's calling setups then you are in money bet if it does not then try opposite. If not clear then stay on sideline.

    I shorted lot in EURUSD today because my charts shows me clearly it was downturn before some news flash about Greece and others. It was nice payoff!

    my 2 cents!
