The USD has continued its push to the downside, and further downside is expected. Last week we mentioned that we were expecting upside across the XXXUSD pairs. Since posting, AUD/USD, EUR/USD, NZD/USD has pushed up around 100 pips. Tonight we do have FOMC for the dollar, this could provide us with some volatility and movement.
EUR has been very strong recently, after having months of weakness it is nice to see us pushing up. Since the end of March, EUR/USD hit a low of 1.17041 and is currently trading at 1.20884 – a gain of nearly 400 pips! Because of this, we are anticipating further strength with the EUR across the board. However, we could be seeing pullbacks soon – but this should be treated as opportunities to continue buying.
AUD and NZD have been pushing up, riding on the coat tails of the USD weakness we have been seeing. We are actively looking for positions to be buying AUD and NZD. BSAPPSFX Advanced Students are aware of potential setups which we are watching, especially on EUR/NZD and GBP/NZD.
BITCOIN has seen a very strong pullbacks, hitting a high of 64K and after 11 days was 27% lower – hitting a low of 47K. Although the crypto market in general is still massively bullish – we will be very cautious with BITCOIN due to changes that have occured when utilising the technical tools that BSAPPSFX use. We will wait for things to develop before looking for a position on this.

Last week, we were looking for a long position on EUR/CAD. This did hit our stop-loss, which is perfectly fine! Risk management is key, so when we lose we lose small. And when we win, we win big!
