Volume point of control (VPOC) holds key for gold

All traders understand the significance of price levels, and use any number of methods of trying to establish which are important and which to target not only as potential price objectives, but also try to try and establish where price is likely to stall.

Classic VPA on GBP/JPY

A classic VPA on 5 min chart of GBP/JPY on the release of NFP today. Huge down candle on light volume, before we saw a switch back higher as market absorbed poor numbers, and likelihood of a September FED hike in interest rates disappear faster than snow in July. The trigger of the volatility indicator… Read more »

Majors wait for the FED

Ahead of today’s release of the FOMC minutes it has been the commodity dollars that have reacted most strongly to a stronger USD, whilst eurodollar and cable have been contained to a very narrow trading range. It will be interesting to see whether these two laggards will play catch up once the minutes hit the… Read more »

New trading month sees the usual crop of PMI releases. China has already reported today we have the numbers from Italy, Spain and France as well as the UK.

At the same time the VPOC (volume… Read more »

Bearish sentiment continues for eurodollar

The release of slightly better than expected preliminary GDP and unemployment claims for the US did manage to add some bearish momentum to the eurodollar before it found support at 1.2525 from where it has been attempting to rally higher. It goes without saying this level needs to be taken out for the pair to… Read more »

Eurodollar bears take control

Although the market is focused on tomorrow’s release of the FOMC minutes, an event guaranteed to cause a degree of market volatility, it is the release of the CPI and Core CPI numbers earlier in the session which are probably even more important. Of the two releases it is the Core CPI the FED pays… Read more »
