Pick of the Day: EUR/USD – Trade Closed

Trade Closed: 2007-11-02 16:30

Volatility brought EUR/USD back down after our trade adjustment yesterday to breakeven, closing our remaining position out.

1st Half: +28 pips
2nd Half: +00 pips
Total: +28 pips

The Dollar continued to sell off even after today’s strong NFP numbers. While we saw a surprise to the upside with a read at 166k, we also saw revisions to previous months that resulted in a net loss of jobs. Look out for the Euro to continue to climb against the Greenback, especially as we approach the European Central Bank interest rate decision next week. See ya then and have a great weekend!

Trade Adjustment: 2007-11-01 12:18

It looks like the support EUR/USD found just above 1.44 held and the pair has moved higher to hit our first profit target.

Half of our position was closed at 1.4450 to lock in +28 pips. Please adjust the stop on the remaining position to breakeven.

If the pair hits 1.45, instead of closing our remaining position we will adjust our stop to 1.4450 to ride the bullish sentiment and longer term uptrend. Stay tuned for updates!

PoD Chart

It looks like the Dollar rallied after the FOMC decision to cut the short term interest rate down to 4.50%. It appears to be profit taking and I think it has brought it down far enough where we can enter the long term trend.

As we can see on the chart, the pair found support just above the 1.44 handle after a big drop from the all time highs. We see the new candle forming at the the 61% Fibonacci retracement area, a potentially strong support area as well.

We will long at the market here and set our stop below 1.44

Long EUR/USD at market (1.4422), stop at 1.4385, pt1 at 1.4450, pt2 1.4500

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

Good luck and good trading!

    Great, I just want to know when exactly you post your “pick of the day”, so I can make sure my research is in line with yours. Like I said, I have been following postings and they mostly have been right on the money.

    So around what time do you usually post your pick of the day?
