EURUSD Through 13100-13145 is a HUGE Level
September 14 2012 9:15 AM EDT
I just want to share a few charts as I work on the weekly. The EURUSD ripped through 13100 this morning after taking out the May gap (13080) with ease. I'm expecting a reaction at 13145 (not sure if we reach it today or not), which is defined by the October 2011 low, 50% retracement of the decline from the October 2011 high and 38.2% retracement of the decline from the April 2011 high.

After a slight pullback where we saw the dollar stabilise earlier, it is once again coming under pressure. However, the dollar index is down nearly 6% since the end of July and it is starting to look extremely oversold so be aware of a sharper pullback in the near term. This would not mean that the rally is over, merely that the market has over extended itsel...
EURUSD: Trading the U.S. Consumer Price Report
September 14 2012 5:23 AM EDT
Consumer prices in the U.S. are projected to increase 1.7% in August following the 1.4% expansion the month prior, and the faster rate of price growth may prop up the dollar as it dampens the Fed scope to embark on additional monetary easing. Although the Fed announced another asset purchase program and extends its interest rate pledge out to 2015, the central bank raised the lower end of its inflation forecast for 2012-2015, and a marked rebound in consumer prices may encourage the FOMC to soft...
