The EUR / USD currency pair shifted us quite a bit in the week to the recent multi-year highs above 1.2500 levels. Long position from the 1.2200-1.2300 shopping area I closed at Profit-Targets.
The rate for several years, the last days mostly very good data from the US, soothing on the stock markets, and surely the ECB's dissatisfaction with the development of the euro favor me in the next days rather price correction back to 1.22-1.23 bands. Also current technical bear signals indicate a possible downward correction.
After closing the Eurodolar long positions of the week, Wednesday's accumulated smaller short positions. Even the foundation, and the ECB would still be holding the euro for a while.
The currency pair USD / JPY has fallen sharply over the past few days to a medium-term strong support area. This was due to the exaggerated but short-term weakening of the dollar over the past 8-9 days, as well as to the fall in stocks and thus the preference of a safe Japanese yen.
However, the situation may seem to stabilize today. For the further strengthening of the Japanese yen, I still do not see a serious reason, and the correction of the weakening dollar should bring this curr…

Have you always wanted to trade shares or simply tired of trading Spot Forex currencies and wish to take advantage of the available CFDs on the Dukascopy Bank's online trading platform but don't know much about them? If your answer is a Yes, then please continue reading.
In layman's terms, just as in Spot Forex trading a currency pair equates to an actual purchase of one of the two underlying currency assets and selling the second currency of the pair against it, Contract for Difference (CFD) is the opposite in comparison to Spot trading and works on merely speculating on the price change in the exchange rate of an underlying asset; without entitling us to the ownership of such an underlying physical asset. Therefore, since CFDs are not an actual acquisition or selloff of real assets; liquidity is never an issue and will not impact a trade as it does when trading physical assets on an exchange market.
There are CFDs for many types of markets but the most common ones are as following:
  • Global stock CFDs, such as blue chip shares of a public company.
  • Stock index CFDs, such as NASDAQ, FTSE, DAX and other stock market indices.
  • Forex CFDs

Introduction
The price action in silver since the 17th of April 20117 has been downright ugly to say the very least. Having reached its 2017 high on that day after trading at $18.725 per ounce, silver has declined in twelve sessions of the last thirteen, reaching a low of 16.72 on May 2nd. Having lost about 10.7% of its value from the peak, there seems to be no end to the plunge in silver prices.
Fig 1: Daily charts of Silver and gold prices
Fig 1 shows the daily chart of silver and gold, and the recent plunge in silver prices is quite evident. What is also glaring from the chart is how silver has under-performed gold in the period. Gold reached its high for the year on the same day as silver and has dropped from $1297.50 to lows of $1252 on the second day of May, a decline of 3.5%, which is nothing compared to the losses suffered by silver.
Is there something fundamentally wrong with Silver? Has the market overreacted? Will the markets have the courage to catch the “falling knife”? This article seeks to analyse the short to medium term outlook for Silver and possibly answer some questions in traders’ minds.
The Silver to gold Ratio
As can be seen in Fig 1, there is a stro…

According to Wikipedia, An emerging market “is a country that has some characteristics of a developed market, but does not meet standards to be a developed market.”
Emerging markets have been described in many ways:
  • In 1999, Dr. Vladimir Kvint, a renowned economist and strategist, defined an emerging market country as "a society transitioning from a dictatorship to a free-market-oriented-economy, with increasing economic freedom, gradual integration with the Global Marketplace and with other members of the GEM (Global Emerging Market), an expanding middle class, improving standards of living, social stability and tolerance, as well as an increase in cooperation with multilateral institutions".

  • The Center for Knowledge Societies (CKS Consulting Pvt. Ltd.) a design and innovation consultancy, in its 2008 emerging economy report described emerging markets as "regions of the world that are experiencing rapid informationalization under conditions of limited or partial industrialization."

The common denominator in both definitions is that emerging markets are rapidly expanding markets that are not fully developed. The ten largest emerging markets in the world are: Argentina, Brazil, C…

Introduction

The beginning of this year was remarkable in a way that never before have stock exchanges around the world, commodities, and currencies like the NZD and AUD taken such a dive in the first weeks of January.
All of this happened due to the growing concerns on the Chinese economy and its impact on global economic growth, demand for commodities, and the transactions carried out with its largest trading partners.
In this article I will explain the interdependencies between China and the rest of the world, be it in commodities or currencies. The data is for the year 2014 as we still do not have official annual data for year 2015. There are a lot of numbers in this article, but this is the only way to communicate the importance of this country to the global economy.

Gross Domestic Product

It is the most populated country in the world with a population of 1.37 billion (further “B"), which makes up 19% of the total world population. Therefore, every one out of five people on this planet is Chinese!
China is the second largest economy in the world (the first one is USA) with a GDP for 2014 standing at USD 10.3 trillion (USD further as “$” and trillion further as “T"). You c…

  INTRODUCTIONWith my previous article I introduced a study about the policy done in last years by central banks: the purpose was to analyze the impact into stock markets (since correlated with forex) to better understand the current situation and possible developments in the coming days/weeks. With this article I will show my study about U.S. monetary policy, the impact occurred in some world markets, and my attempt to understand whether this policy has produced the desired effect or not. QUANTITATIVE EASINGAs previously underlined, QE is an unconventional monetary policy used by central banks to stimulate the national economy when conventional policy has become ineffective. When I read this sentence for the first time, I thought that in any other circumstance in which this type of expression is used, it simply means that the situation is far more serious than you think, and normally any kind of extreme solution will cause serious damage in some other macro/micro systems directly or indirectly connected.In our contemporary history, this type of policy has been introduced (and widely used) by the American central bank (FED) with a 2 trillion dollars (12 zeros) of new money created…

QE increases money supply, but if you have more money chasing the same amount of goods then the price of those goods will go higher (or at least not go as low as they should without QE). Producing goods and services is what creates wealth, not printing money. If everyone was given 1 million euros we would all be poor, because hyperinflation would make those euros worthless and we would have a huge recession :)

Nice article about QE and correlations.I wrote article about it and I use correlations in my statistical arbitrage trading strategy. Correlations between the USD and 6 major world currencies in last several years went down. Do you use correlations in your own trading strategy? Thank you.

Traders all around the world are looking for the best trades to make the most profit. Correlations are very important to a successful trader as traders can HEDGE positions or see if a correlated pair is about to BREAKOUT.  Correlations are a statistical measure of how two currency pairs move in relation to each other. A measure of -1 is when they track perfectly opposite to each other for example if EURUSD went up 100 pips and AUDUSD went down 100pips they would have a correlation value of -1. On the other hand A value of 1 is when they both move perfectly with each other. So both move up 100 pips together. It is very rare to find perfect correlations but some are very close to 1. However a common example is A BONDS yield and price. So for example If the Price of the bond rises the yield falls and vice versa this is perfectly inversely correlated. Here are some examples of Correlation over hourly charts on some of the most popular currency pairs. AUDUSD - EURUSD : 0.949 AUDUSD - NZDUSD : 0.998 AUDUSD - GBPUSD : 0.957 EURUSD - NZDUSD : 0.954 EURUSD - GBPUSD : 0.999 NZDUSD - GBPUSD : 0.962 As you can see here some such as AUDUSD - NZDUSD are very …
