Forex Trading Signals CAD Weakness 8-22-2016

Today in forex trading the GBP/CAD and NZD/CAD moved higher on CAD (Canadian Dollar) weakness. The GBP/CAD should continue higher on the H4 and possibly D1 time frames, but the major trend on this pair is down on the MN time frame. The GBP/CAD still has upside potential going forward for 1 or 2 two days. The NZD/CAD moved higher but this pair is inside of various levels of resistance, for that reason we would scale out lots or exit this trade. The trading signals for the CAD pairs is shown below from The Forex Heatmap®, along with the price chart movement. The heatmap provides trading signals for 28 currency pairs and can be used for day trading or entering new or existing trends on the higher time frames.

British Pound Official Bank Rate Cut

Today in forex news the Bank of England cut interest rates from 0.50% to 0.25%, and the Monetary Policy Committee left the door open to more cuts going forward. The cut was widely anticipated in this post Brexit business environment. This is the first BOE rate cut in 7 years.

For traders, the British Pound dropped strong against all 7 currencies we follow. The GBP/USD is at an intra-day low of 1.8240 and the GBP/NZD had an intra-day low of 1.8240. Most GBP pairs we follow remain inside ranges and clusters, but the GBP/NZD and GBP/JPY have broken short term support levels and we will look to continue selling these pairs in our daily trading plans. We expect more GBP pairs to follow based on GBP weakness. The long term trends on the MN time frame on all GBP pairs continues to show GBP weakness. Today’s live sell signals from The Forex Heatmap® are shown below to show the GBP sell off, along with the price chart movement after the announcement today.

Sample Forex Trading Plan

In this video we will use the JPY (Japanese Yen Pairs) to show how to build a sample forex trading plan for one group of currency pairs. These principles work for any group of pairs with one common currency. For the JPY pairs you would drill down the charts using multiple time frame analysis for the JPY pairs, AUD/JPY NZD/JPY, CAD/JPY, EUR/JPY, etc., all 7 JPY pairs total. In this example the long term trends are all pointing down, and the H4 and D1 time frames are reversing back down into the trend, so the charts show that JPY is strong and that the JPY pairs are dropping. Our trading plans for this day reflect the JPY strength. We issued sell plans for various JPY pairs along with the price alert points for traders to set audible alerts to detect the movement to the downside. When the alerts hit in the Asian session the JPY pairs are in an obvious sell off and our currency alert system also shows the sell off. This is a very safe way to trade the forex and this method works for any group of currency pairs, i.e., USD pairs, CHF pairs, NZD pairs, etc., for a total of 28 pairs. In this video we use the JPY pairs as a sample, then the same methods and techniques can be use for any group of currency pairs.

The CHF/JPY dropped substantially and is trending lower on the D1 time frame, it has ongoing pip potential in the current downtrend.

Other CHF pairs like the AUD/CHF and GBP/CHF moved up pretty strong today on the CHF weakness in the market but these pairs are inside of ranges and were short term buy trades or day trades.  The images below show the live CHF trading signals from The Forex Heatmap® along with the associated price chart movement in the direction of the trends.
