The EUR/NZD is in a strong downtrend on the major time frames like the W1 and MN time frames. When analyzing all of the NZD pairs, the NZD is currently strong on all pairs. Traders can set an audible price alert for a sell at 1.5030, this price is noted on the chart below. The next major support is at the 1.4250 area or lower, also noted on the charts. We also have other sell plans based on NZD strength in our daily trading plans.
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.
The EUR/NZD analysis shows that this pair is trending down on the larger time frames, like the W1 time frame pictured below. You can set a price alert at 1.6110 for a sell on this pair. When the alert hits, below that price look for a sell signal on The Forex Heatmap®. We see considerable pip potential below the alert price, so the risk and reward ratio would be very good on any sells. This trend analysis was accomplished with multiple time frame analysis by individual currency, using 5/12 exponential moving averages. These moving averages are simple, but powerful when applied across individual currency groups.

Today the Chinese Yuan devaluation created strong movement and trading opportunities for forex traders. The Chinese Yuan (CNY) was allowed to appreciate 2% against the US Dollar (USD). The People’s Bank of China made this move due to the recent economic slowdown there, but was still very sudden and unexpected. This was the biggest one day drop in the value of the Yuan in 20 years. Chinese Yuan devaluation against the US Dollar by 2% is hoped to boost the Chinese economy.
This devaluation caused a strong reaction in the forex market. Currencies in the Asian region and currencies of Chinese trading partners were affected by the devaluation. The Japanese Yen (JPY), the Australian Dollar (AUD), and the New Zealand Dollar (NZD) were all affected by today’s devaluation. Most of the price movement and opportunities for forex traders today resulting from the Chinese Yuan devaluation were on these three currencies.
Chinese Yuan Devaluation, Impact On Traders
The AUD and NZD both tumbled on the Chinese Yuan devaluation news, but the Euro (EUR) also strengthened. This produced strong movements in the EUR/AUD and EUR/NZD pairs. The EUR/CAD also moved up strong as all commodity based currencies reacted to the devaluation news.
The impact of the devaluation news can produce intraday or trend based trading profits for forex traders. As you can see below, the trading opportunities on the AUD pairs alone was significant. The live indicators shown below, The Forex Heatmap® indicated buy signals on the EUR/AUD, EUR/NZD and EUR/CAD for intra-day or potential longer term buys. All three of these pairs are currently in up trends. This is a valuable lesson on how scheduled or unscheduled forex news and global events can bring profits to any trader. Using this type of real time signal system is highly beneficial.
The movements shown are significant intraday price movements. A 1.17 percent movement in the AUD/USD is about 80 pips, and a 0.93% movement in the EUR/AUD is about 150 pips. Since the EUR/AUD is trending up on the higher time frames, traders can use the Chinese Yuan Devaluation news as and entry point into the trend. Traders can also move their stops to break even, thus preserving their upside potential for even more pips. All traders should consider using The Forex Heatmap® in their trading tool set, along with some simple forex trend indicators.
Currency Devaluations and Interventions
It is important to remember that government interventions and devaluations have been tried many times in the past with various currencies. These devaluations and short term price fluctuations are artificial, and usually short term, due to the high liquidity of currency markets. The overall market forces like the larger time frame trends and interest rate direction will always be the strongest guide for the direction of currencies like the Chinese Yuan.
