The NZD/CAD uptend was interrupted by a short term sell off over a few days, then this pair built a choppy relative low around the 0.9450 price level. It is now reversing back into the major uptrend on the MN time frame. This happens in a trending market when a pair sells off against the major trend, then reverses back into the trend. It gives traders an opportunity to enter the trend at a lower price, we call these swing trade setups. It is in action with the NZD/CAD uptrend but it works for all 28 pairs we trade.

AUD/USD Strong Selloff Signal 9-9-2016

AUD/USD Strong Selloff 9-9-2016

When the AUD/USD has strong selloff it is always because one currency is weak and the other currency is strong. Today the AUD was weak and the USD was strong. The same thing in reverse can happen when there is a strong up cycle. This is why The Forex Heatmap® is so valuable. It works for short term buy or sell trades like today, but it also works when entering strong up trends.

In the case of trading with the trend, traders can hold onto their position and ride the trend with the strong entries this tools helps to provide. It is part of our overall trend based trading system. Since the AUD/USD is not trending right now, just cycling between support and resistance, we recommend good money management and scaling out lots. Any forex trader can trade profitably using these principles and tools, parallel and inverse analysis and currency strength are vital to the success of your forex trading program.

EUR/NZD Strong Downtrend 9-7-2016

To perform the analysis of the EUR/NZD we used multiple time frame analysis by individual currency, which is very powerful and revealing. This revealed that the EUR/NZD was in a strong down trend based mostly on the consistent NZD strength in the market. Currently, the EUR pairs are somewhat neutral or choppy. If any EUR weakness comes into the market, perhaps after tomorrow’s EUR news drivers on the economic calendar, we expect a strong sell off on this pair. The Forex Heatmap® and live heatmap alerts will keep us apprised of any EUR weakness in the market in real time.

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.

Forex Trades CHF Weakness 7-26-2016

Today in the main forex trading session the CHF was weak on all pairs. The CHF/JPY dropped substantially and is trending lower on the D1 time frame, it has ongoing pip potential in the current downtrend. The NZD/CHF also moved higher and this pair should start trending up on the H4/D1 time frames. We will look to plan more buys going forward in our trading plans on the NZD/CHF. 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.
