Vast majority of trading activity this week was contained between GBP/USD and EUR/USD and cross pairs. EUR/USD and GBP/USD began the week at dead neutral to oversold AUD/USD and NZD/USD. EUR/USD and GBP/USD movements were based on proper alignments to AUD and NZD.
USD/JPY traded 179 pips this week to match DXY. USD/JPY is again trading perfectly to DXY.
Japan’s Ministry of Finance released its monthly Intervention data as right about $14 million was spent to drop USD/JPY 500 pips and JPY/USD to trade higher by 250 pips. The $14 million translates as Yen 2,838.2 billion.
Best trades to continue the week are EUR/NZD, EUR/AUD, GBP/AUD and GBP/JPY. Recall GBP/JPY ranges from 148.00’s to 168.00’s. GBP/JPY broke the 5 year average in 2019 to trade 3 years later at 168.00’s in March 2022. The range from 148 to 168 remains in effect until a break is seen and has held for 3 years.
GBP/JPY trades massive overbought and targets easily 163.21 then 162.54.
EUR/NZD, EUR/AUD and GBP/AUD trade massive overbought and easy money shorts over next days. Note exchange rate numbers EUR/NZD 1.7300’s VS GBP/AUD at 1.7600’s. Same currencies as both achieved a marriage for double trades.
NZD/USD and AUD/USD traded higher to relieve deep oversold then sat idle to allow GBP/USD, EUR/USD and cross pairs to align again to AUD/USD and NZD/USD.
WTI and Brent traded 3.56 points yesterday and 3.72 points for the week. Nothing extraordinary to WTI or Brent as both trade perfectly normal.
