The Forex Zone – Erratic trading after Fed rate cut

Intermediate

An erratic tone across FX markets in the wake of a rate cut from the Fed.

The Forex Zone focuses on day trade opportunities for the major Forex pairs; EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDCAD, AUDUSD, NZDUSD and USDJPY.

EURUSD: Bias stays higher

A resilient consolidation Thursday after Wednesday’s setback held above 1.0989/80 supports, to sustain upside forces since the erratic session through the September ECB Meeting (that saw an initial selloff to rebound from just above the September cycle low at 1.0924, from 1.0926), to keep risks higher for Friday.

For Today:

  • We see an upside bias for 1.1082 break here aims for 1.1109/16, maybe towards key 1.1164.
  • But below 1.0991/80 opens risk down to 1.0926/24.

For Today:                                               

  • We see an upside bias for 1.2557; break here aims for 1.2578 and then 1.2612.

A dip Thursday but to hold above 1.3229 support, after Wednesday’s firm advance just above 1.3300 resistance, sustaining upside forces from the mid-September surge (above resistances at 1.3247 and 1.3282), to keep risks higher for Friday.

  • We see an upside bias for 1.3310; break here aims for 1.3339 and 1.3383.
