Weekly Watch: Oct. 28 to Nov. 1, 2013

We saw a bit of action last week thanks to US jobs data and China monetary policy news, but volatility still remains low relative to recent months. We’ve got quite a few economic events to watch this week to possibly take volatility higher, and here are this week’s must-watch levels on EUR/JPY, GBP/JPY, and EUR/GBP!


A big run up to start last week for EUR/JPY to go with the recent trend higher, but Chinese monetary policy tightening quickly brought the pair back down, in which I saw a trading opportunity to go long. The trend could continue on, but a pullback certainly isn’t out of the question. 133.50 – 134.00 are still legitimate areas for the bulls to watch, while those already in the trend want to look at 135.50 – 136.00 for a move higher to possibly slow down.

Guppy is back to the middle of a range that’s been going on since mid-September. 158.00 seems to be a magnet as of late, so a break from the current levels could easily be +100 pips in either direction before finding support or resistance. The market has been in an uptrend over the last two weeks with the exception of a fast pullback on Chinese news. Will October’s trend higher resume?

EUR/GBP made new highs with ease since bottoming out at the end of September around .8300. The trend is higher, so a pullback to .8500 could attract new buyers into the mix, or a break above .8560 could mean current bulls may add more. .8600 would a good area for patient bears to start looking because the longer-term trend since the summer has been to the downside and that was an area of major support/resistance.
