EUR/CHF

Ever since the swiss central bank debacle, i’ve been weary to trade this pair. But EC is making progressive changes in momentum to the upside. While i can’t find any fundamental evidence to support this assumption, it’d be interest to see if it can break to the upside. I’m waiting for PA to test 1.0640 and if it breaks this level, it should go at least 1.0684.

Price action

PA works similar to a progressive system such that trend changes with respect to changes in momentum. Again, here trend change is not validated merely by changes in momentum, it is confirmed by testing a trough or peak. I’d like to see at least 3 tests before make an entry. No system is perfect, and patience will add to the chances of success.

GBP/USD

The Bank of England’s vote for a rate hike turned out to be neutral, but recent comments about the resolution of the Greek debt crisis is looking forward to a rate hike. Price of G/U was a reflection of that expectation.  Besides, the vote for 0-0-9 was weeks ago, so the result of the vote was already priced in the market.  Looks like G/U is very resilient against a stronger dollar, and the price action right now… indicates a strong retail sales figure later tonight.  I’m looking to long this pair, if it reaches, 1.5636.
