2022 was a record breaker for the number of pips generated. It was also the second year running that all three of my KPi (Key Performance Indicators) were beaten (Pips generated, Pips per completed trade and Winning Trades / Losing Trades Ratios). I attach below the link to my short video presentation looking at the […]
“DOUBLE UP” SUBSCRIBER PROMOTION
As we head into the Christmas holiday and New Year break, whilst I am busy getting together the content for my year end “ZOOM’S”, it is also the time of year to launch a WEEKLY FX PREMIUM SUBSCRIBER PROMOTION. For those of you who want to see what I do day to day, there is […]
THE DUCKS ARE LINING UP
As we head into what is really the final big week of trading this year, I find it really fascinating that we are at many inflection points vis-à-vis the economic data. Without doubt reducing OIL prices has started to filter into headline inflation numbers prompting Central Bankers to slow down the size of interest rate […]
“APPETIZER DONE; NOW THE MAIN COURSE”
The weeks seem to be racing through. Next week we start the final round of the major Central Bank meetings and interest rate announcements. Last week we heard from FED chair Jerome Powell, who delivered what the market believed to be a more DOVISH tone at his speech and Q & A at the Brooking […]
WHAT DOES POWELL THINK, WHAT WILL POWELL SAY?
Last week was a shortened week of trading plus, this weekend is also a long weekend for many of the bigger traders, so, as a result, we have seen a stunted FX market for quite a few days. Looking forward, we have a very busy week ahead for key data plus a speech by FED […]
THE DOMINOES ARE LINING UP
Worsening and concerning Economic Data is starting to bubble up behind the voices of the Central Bank Governors, Presidents, and the ever so popular aligned spokespersons! From my perspective these pieces of data are individual dominoes forming an orderly line, from which, I am expecting a TRIGGER to pull and then the dominoes will start […]
WILL THE FED BEND THE KNEE?
What a week in the markets and it didn’t matter what market you trade inside. If you read or hear anyone stating that they knew in entirety what the market reaction would be to the lower US CPi number printer last Thursday, inhale (if possible) to check is it cow, camel or bullsh*t. As always, […]
HEADS YOU WIN TALES YOU LOSE
OCTOBER 2022: THE WEEKLY FX PREMIUM REVIEW and HEADS YOU WIN TALES YOU LOSE October was a great month for the WEEKLY FX PREMIUM and that performance has rolled over into November which has started off really strongly. The “FED PIVOT” has been the topic of most discussion whether by written opinion pieces or via […]
THE DOMINO EFFECT… KEEP YOUR EYES ON HOUSING PRICES
We STILL continue to trade and live in very strange times. All change through the revolving door at 10, Downing Street, the markets, for now, seem happy enough that Rishi Sunak is going to “Bend the Knee”. I never thought, I would ever witness two back-to-back 0.75% rate hikes from the ECB, but that happened […]
UNLESS YOU EDUCATE… DO NOT GIVE THE GREAT UNWASHED THE VOTE
We continue to trade and live in very strange times. What a traumatic week in the UK. Truss resigns and Boris Johnson packs up his speedos to head back to the UK to take part in the next Tory Party leadership election. You could NOT make this stuff up. My soapbox this week looks at […]
UK CRISIS… THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG?
We trade and live in very strange times. The LIZ TRUSS project in the UK took another series of sharp turns last week. In addition, Andrew Baily, Governor of the Bank of England basically threw his arms in the air mid-week to the markets by essentially saying from Washington on a trip stateside “Feck you […]
AN INVESTMENT IS A TRADE GONE WRONG!
Here we are once again at the end of another week. Looking back, despite all the airtime on CNBC, FOX BUSINESS and BLOOMBERG devoted to “FED PIVOTS” and the like, since the Jerome Powell speech in Jackson Hole in late August nothing from the FED has changed. That short speech from Powell is largely ignored […]
FX MARKET OVERVIEW Q3 2022
For those you wanted volatility in the FX market, I suppose it would be safe to say that all your Christmas wishes have come all at once. From a “Position” traders’ perspective, patience with global positions in the market really paid off as markets had to eventually turn and so… we reap the benefits and […]
