EUR/USD lower

View Comments

I’m not seeing anything of note crossing the wires re this sharp move lower in the Euro (and GBP). Obviously its much less liquid today than normal with Japan out (and China).


Added: OK – chat is stops below 1.3145 were targeted. In the bigger picture there is unwinding of EUR cross trades continuing from funds.

  1. Hi Eamonn,

    Does “unwinding of EUR cross trades continuing from funds” mean lower prices to come eur/usd? Sorry if this is a dumb question, I’m kind of new.

  2. Hi Matt – no probs, all questions are valid. If you look at a chart the EUR/USD is probing through a support area ( 1.3150 and thereabouts) so there could well be some further selling to come. I’ll post up a chart and hopefully we can get some more ideas/views/discussion going.

  3. Hi Eamonn, I’m wondering whether you know the reason for the unwinding of EUR cross trades from funds? Does this imply a bearish bias for EUR crosses? Thanks.

  4. Gyrating markets without any seemingly news or technical reasons are the best markets to trade . If you have good gut feel , don’t have any strong perceived biases and can respect & accept Price Action you’ll get onto some excellent trades whilst most of the punters are are screaming , ” Why ? Why ? Why ? “

  5. I might have to print this out, frame it and stick it on the wall in front of me – good advice tk u Balmain Boy.

  6. German employment is due shortly. if this is less than expected can you see further falls in eur/usd?
