Cross-Eyeing EUR/CHF – Trade Closed

Trade Closed: 2007-11-12 08:45

Our trade closed on Friday as EUR/CHF retraced back up to our adjusted stop in US afternoon trade.

First trade: -50 pips

Second trade:

1st Half: +52 pips
2nd Half: +152 pips
Total: +204 pips

So, we came out positive after we reversed our position on the support break. We were probably stopped out prematurely as it now looks as if currency markets are in risk aversion mode with equity markets around the world selling off at the moment. With EUR/CHF trading around 1.6400 at the moment, look for the pair to test 1.63 and 1.61 in the near future.

Congrats to those who did well on this trade!

Trade adjustment: 2007-11-09 10:15

EUR/CHF continues to drop almost touching our next profit target at 1.6450. We will adjust our stop once more to lock in a total of +152 pips on our remaining position.

Adjust stop from 1.6600 to 1.6500

Next adjustment will be if the pair hits 1.6400. Stay tuned!

Just a quick update and trade adjustment as EUR/CHF continues to drop past our next profit target.

The pair hits a low of 1.6515, easily hitting the next profit target of 1.6550. We will adjust our stop on the remaining position from 1.6650 to 1.6600 to lock in another +50 pips.

If the pair manages to make its way to 1.6500, we will adjust our stop once again to 1.6550, so stay tuned for that event. Good luck!

Our short play on EUR/CHF hit our first profit target and we closed half of our position at 1.6600.

We will adjust the stop on the remaining position to 1.6650. Instead of closing our position if the pair reaches 1.6550, we will adjust our stop to 1.6600.

Stay tuned for updates!

Trade Closed and Reverse: 2007-11-06 09:55

It looks like we didn’t get much of a run higher as EUR/CHF rallied for a bit, triggering our entry, and then turned lower and stopped us out. Because the support area was broken, I will shorting this pair to ride the momentum lower.

Total: -50 pips

New Trade:

Short EUR/CHF at market (1.6652), stop at 1.6740, pt1 1.6600, pt2 at 1.6550

crosseyed chart

Greetings everyone! It looks like we have a buying opportunity in EUR/CHF as the pair trades near previous support area.

We can see on the chart that the pair has once again reached support around 1.6668 and it appears this level lines up with the rising trendline and the bottom moving average. Also, stochastics are heading lower once again into oversold territory.

Will buyers jump back in here? Could be possible, but we will wait for the pair to make its move higher before jumping in.

Fundamentally, the big event of the week for this pair is the ECB interest rate decision. With rising inflation, analysts think the a cut is out of the question and that a rate hike might be in the works in 2008. So, look for further Euro strength in the short term.

Long EUR/CHF at 1.6700, stop at 1.6660, pt1 at 1.6740, pt2 at 1.6780

Remember to never risk more than 1% of your account on any single trade. Adjust position sizes accordingly.

Good luck!

    There’s a resistance line at 6697, that price has resisted several times in the last few hours. So I am going to wait until price closes above that line and another candle opens above it. In the last 15min bar, price traded at 6701, but closed at that resistance line, and the current bar opened below it.

    I plan to enter when a bar closes above 6697, and the next bar opens above 6697, then I’ll enter at 6700.

    Just my .02
