Total 572 articles accounted for 2016 to 2019. Today’s 1000 + trade articles adds to 2007 when writing began. Article count must be in the multiple 1000’s and we consistently delivered trades and profits.
From btwomey.com. Jackson Hole 2017, EUR/USD rose for the day at 169 pips Vs Last week’s Jackson Hole at 143 pips. DXY in 2017 dropped 103 pips Vs last week at 129 pips. No changes in 5 years.
In 2017, DXY traded 92.42 and EUR/USD at `1.1900’s or a spread at 2600 pips Vs today’s spread at 800 ish pips.
The answer is not in the spreads but the averages. EUR/USD trades 1400 pips from the 5 year average at 1.1471 and deeply oversold from the 50 day average at 1.0137 to the 5000 day averages in 1999. EUR/USD 5 year average in 2017 was 1.2000’s.
USD/JPY trades massively overbought from the 10 day average at 137.33 to the 5000 day averages. USD/JPY trades severely overbought from the 5, 10 and 15 year averages at 111.00, 109.00’s and 102.00’s. The 5 year average in 2017 was at 106.00’s.
DXY 5 year average is located about 1200 pips from current 108.00 at 96.00’s.
The same 1200 pips is seen from current GBP/USD Vs USD/CAD.
The current EUR/USD Vs DXY and non USD currencies trades at wide extremes and must compress. The 5 year averages are moving at roughly 100 pips per year.
Top ranked AUD/JPY was the winner this week with yesterday’s 154 pip drop and beat all JPY cross pairs.
EUR/USD 1.0072 traded to 1.0053 highs from 0.9914 lows. EUR/USD requires a weekly close above 0.9989 to consider a trend higher in focus. Target would then become 1.0133.
The current driver at 1.0276 would then travel higher to allow EUR/USD to rise.
Below 0.9989 then EUR/USD contains ability to trade to a lower degree of oversold.
As mentioned in the weekly, EUR/USD cross pairs would outperform and this was the case yesterday.
Best trades for this day is EUR/AUD, EUR/NZD, EUR/CAD, GBP/USD and USD/CAD.
By April 2019, a total of 572 articles were published on Fxstreet. A full 3 years later, 572 must be in the vicinity 0f 800 and 1000 articles. To post 1 article per week for 10 years equates to 480.
The vast majority were trades and trade related / in depth information such as Correlations, interest rates, money supplies, moving averages. Trades always accompanied analysis to understand the trades.
Target trading was a standard since 2012 and continues to this day. Target trades were short and long term. Many long term trades for 6 and 8 week durations hit targets perfectly for 5, 7 and 1000 pips and all published prior to the trade.
Profit pips from published trades must be in the 100,000 vicinity easily. For 5 months of 2019, weekly trades profited 24,000 pips alone. Trades and targets weren’t contained to G28 and EM currencies but targets achieved for long term trades on Yields, interest rates, WTI, SPX and Gold.
Trades still factor by pen, paper and calculator. The difference today is calculations are easier due to upgrades from days past.
I liked trading USD/CLP and Copper and achieved targets for both. The same may be accomplished with USD/MXN and Silver as Banxico changed the relationship to MXN and Tiie interest rates to slow MXN price speeds in accordance with Silver.
Forecasted correctly in years past were NFP’s, GDP and many economic announcements. No difference today as banks and forecasters still can’t be trusted. Last GDP forecast for example predicted correctly and beat the Atlanta Fed Nowcast.
Jackson Hole 2017, the 2 year yield traded at 1.32 and today 3.38 or 2.06 point difference in 5 years.
The walk down memory journey was quite astounding as the best of research, features and trades were brought to FxStreet readers. All freely given and found at btwomey.com.

The benefit to CHF cross pairs is to trade together with anchor pairs for double and multiple trades. CHF currencies lack the range of anchor pairs however every week, multiple longs and shorts exist to match the profits from anchor pairs.
Note longs and shorts anywhere to entries.
This week’s market began at massively oversold to EUR/USD, GBP, NZD and AUD while USD pairs as USD/JPY and USD/CAD began deeply overbought.
Its impossible to trade continued longs and shorts to oversold and overbought conditions. Rare weeks and the most dangerous situation throughout the years is seen oversold trades to more oversold or overbought to more overbought. These are unhealthy markets. The only rectification is add 1 lot and trade to breakeven or to target.
Overall for the majority of trade weeks, a trade begins at entry and ends at target.
The benefit to this week as is the case every week is 12 currencies run 24 hour trades and 8 currencies trade for 7 hours. Profits always exist. Running daily and weekly trades are current: SPX, WTI, Brent, XAU/USD and DAX.
All 21 weekly trades contain multiple longs and shorts. Trades so far.

NZD/USD earns its place at the bottom by trade ability and math. Central banks are responsible for this by interest rates but also by the 2016 central bank changes to the currency price. Manipulate the currency price as the smallest price on the planet then all market prices are affected.
A Median and Simple average traditionally governed the currency price since 1972’s free float. The Median average was discarded so all market prices work on simple averages. Elimination of the Median price destroyed volatility to today’s trade in dead markets.

Overall downside to a vast majority of our currency pairs are about 50 pips then watch out as deeply oversold contains easy ability to trade much higher.
The currency market story this week contains many parts however initial focus is on deeply oversold wide range currency pairs: GBP/AUD, EUR/AUD, GBP/NZD, EUR/NZD, EUR/CAD, GBP/CAD. The primary concentration to oversold and trades is found in GBP/AUD, EUR/AUD, GBP/NZD and EUR/NZD.
Why GBP/AUD, EUR/AUD, GBP/NZD and EUR/NZD traded to such deep oversold levels is the contention between overbought AUD/USD and NZD/USD Vs neutral to oversold EUR/USD and GBP/USD.
The anchor pairs lack uniformity as AUD/USD and NZD/USD are deficient to range compared to counterparts EUR/USD and GBP/USD. Lack of agreement across the board forced wide range currency pairs into Richter Scale oversold.
AUD/USD and NZD/USD broke above significant points at current 0.7023 and NZD/USD 0.6379 while GBP/USD trades below vital 1.2327 and EUR/USD below 1.0420.
Agreement is rectified by initial shorts to AUD/USD and NZD/USD then long. AUD/USD big break for lower is located at 0.7023 and target at 0.7053. Break of 0.7023 then targets 0.6993 then long to 0.7013. The important point for AUD/USD is 0.7053 to determine the 0.7023 break or higher to 0.7102.
The AUD/USD short trade is clear from overbought and the assistance to shorts is derived from severely overbought AUD/JPY, AUD/CAD and uncertain AUD/NZD. Watch AUD/CAD 0.9009 and AUD/USD 0.7023 while AUD/NZD big break at 1.1012 from the open at 1.1033. Nothing special to AUD/CHF except to follow AUD/USD.
NZD/USD is a replica of AUD/USD with a slight twist. Short NZD/USD targets 0.6409 then decision time to break 0.6379 to target 06290 or long 0.6409 to target 0.6467. NZD/JPY trades overbought, no assistance from neutral NZD/CHF and watch NZD/CAD at 0.8185. Short rallies applies to all NZD as NZD/CHF, NZD/JPY and NZD/CAD. Watch shorts at 0.8305.
EUR/USD ranges from 1.0298 to 1.0175. EUR/USD longs are assisted by oversold EUR/CHF, EUR/CAD, EUR/AUD and EUR/NZD. EUR/USD longs however are located at lower levels to comply with AUD/USD and NZD/USD overbought.
GBP/USD achieved 1.2105 as written last Thursday. Lows traded to 1.2107 and GBP/USD closed at 1.2131 from highs Thursday at 1.0248.
GBP/USD maintains the same story as EUR/USD. GBP/USD trades from 1.2178 to 1.2029. The benefit to GBP/USD longs at lower levels is due to not only comply to overbought AUD and NZD but to oversold GBP/CHF, GBP/CAD, GBP/AUD and GBP/NZD.
The problem with EUR/NZD and GBP/NZD longs is both lack range and each are good for about 150 pips higher. EUR/AUD and GBP/AUD are quite different as both contain much room to roam higher.
USD/JPY’s big break for lower is located at 131.63 and currently trades a wide range from 132.65 to 135.71. We’re short at higher levels.
EUR/JPY’s big break for higher is located at 136.95 and the same 3 week old EUR/JPY story to horrible position. GBP/JPY big break at 161.99 joins the EUR/JPY ranks to last place and horrible position. The better trades as usual are short AUD/JPY, NZD/JPY and CAD/JPY.
DXY as written for weeks is contained from its new range from 105.00 to 103.00’s. Higher must break 105.49, 105.72, 105.81.
Gold traded 37 points last week and 41 points 2 weeks ago. SPX traded 86 points last week and 89 points 2 weeks ago. WTI traded 7 points last week and 11 points 2 weeks ago.
As DXY maintains tiny ranges, Gold and Commodities will follow by maintaining short ranges.
EUR/USD topside yesterday was set against targets at 1.0256 and 1.0259. Both extraordinary moves for the day and both targets achieved for big profits yet EUR/USD breaks vital 1.0285 and trades another 82 pips to 1.0367. Note the location of 1.0285 as dead center of the hourly candle.
The break of 1.0285 then placed EUR/USD from 1.0285 to 1.0350. What allowed EUR/USD to travel higher was the ECB at 10:00 then EUR/USD was good until 1.0304. The BOE at 11 am stopped EUR/USD to begin the long slide lower to 1.0320. The Fed at 12:30 then settled EUR/USD at 1.0296 from 1.0367 highs or71 pips.
EUR/USD yesterday traded for the day overall 167 pips and about 67 more than normal. On the surface appears as just another EUR/USD trade day but 1.0285 set EUR/USD off 82 of the 167 pips or 1/2 of its total 167 pip range.
The 2 most vital points to traded markets are overall ranges and range points such as 1.0285. How much was 1.0285 respected was seen in the weekly trade target at 1.0283. Friends and subscribers profits were 130 ish pips but the pips were easy and guaranteed. And the trade duration was 4 days.
Range Vs Price shares the most unique relationships and most vital to understand market trading.
What were the trade options. Not only was EUR/USD overbought at 1.0285 for the day but 1.0285 location was dangerous. The only option was short and short anywhere.
EUR/USD moves yesterday were unusual, extraordinary and in mathematical weirdo ville. Correct was EUR/USD to reverse at 1.0250’s.
Who or possibly which central bank took EUR/USD higher from 1.0285 is unknown. We’re not privy to such information anymore as was the norm in the old days from the top 4 banks. Previously, the top 4 banks release Flow Reports to determine who to major banks and central banks were big buyers and sellers.
EUR/USD Big break for higher is now 1.0420 and the range becomes 1.0357 to 1.0294. Below 1.0294 targets 1.0231 easily. EUR/USD Friday should close in the vicinity of 1.0168. The lower for EUR/USD is the better for the long trade next week.
GBP/JPY shorts yesterday at 163.82 traded to 163.64 then began the long drop to 161.00’s. GBP/JPY vital at 162.01 allowed GBP/JPY to trade to 161.00’s. Big break for higher is now 162.05.
EUR/JPY is on the verge to trade lower at 136.95. EUR/JPY is a horrible currency at the moment heading into week 3. EUR/JPY trades neutral to neutral without significant progress. EUR/JPY is more suited as a day trade. EUR/JPY broke vital 136.93 and traded 30 pips lower to 136.60. This should serve as a warning to EUR/JPY.
DXY achieved 106.45 and USD/CAD 1.2990’s. As written yesterday, USD/CAD 1.2958 Vs DXY 106.45. The DXY V USD/CAD differential spread from 20 ish pips to 40’s.
Higher for USD/CAD must break 1.2835. DXY now enters its next range from 103.00’s to 105.00’s. Vital above is located at 105.54, 105.76 and 105.80 Vs 104.30 below.
The breaks below for DXY was significant as much as 1.0285 was for EUR/USD.
AUD/USD broke above 0.7001 and lower for AUD/USD must crack 0.7013. Current range 0.7055 to 0.7096 then begins overbought and shorts.
Most important to overall currency markets is NZD/USD break above 0.6362 and today 0.6368. NZD/USD at 0.6417 is fairly neutral which means NZD has every ability to travel to 0.6500’s or break below 0.6368. We’re short next week in the vicinity of 0.6490’s or long upon a break of 0.6368.
GBP/AUD yesterday was written longs at 1.7395. Correct was short at 1.7395. Deeply oversold GBP/AUD should be a big winner for longs next week. Same story for EUR/AUD.
USD/JPY for next week 131.61.
GBP/USD. Looking for a close around 1.2104 for longs next week. A close much higher then GBP/USD is on the last place of the trade rank list.
EUR/NZD as written yesterday long for a quick 50 pips at 1.6178. EUR/NZD traded 1.6150 to 1.6274. EUR/NZD current trades deeply oversold and informs NZD/USD could easily break 0.6368.
Gold traded 20 points yesterday and expected to trade 10 points today. SPX traded 31 points yesterday and within the 25 point framework. Max today is right at 47 pips.
EUR/USD this week to its weekly range trades from 1.0283 to 1.0147 or 136 pips. Today’s range: 1.0285 to 1.0155 or 130 pips. Yet another dead EUR/USD week is upon us. The benefit is day trades all week are located within the parameters of 1.0285 to 1.0155.
Today’s topside EUR/USD for example is located at 1.0258 and 1.0262. Far short to 1.0285. Bottom EUR/USD 1.0154 and 1.0172.
Today’s Inflation trade appears from yesterday afternoon to be a non event as today’s prices lack range ability which means Inflation is released as expected and prices trade in tiny ranges.
The trade strategy is short highs and long bottoms. Same strategy as if today wasn’t Inflation day.
DXY traded highs this week at 106.81 and between 106.52 to 107.01. DXY traded 83 pips this week from 106.81 to 105.97. Sunday’s range 105.47 to 106.52 and 107.01.

DXY is expected to trade today at 106.45 highs and 105.90 lows Vs SPX 4141 Vs 4107.
Neither DXY nor SPX contains any ability to move today except within the same dull ranges. DXY is the problem and as long as DXY fails to move then SPX and Commodities follows non movements. The currency price is the driver to Stock and Commodity markets. When DXY decides to move then Stocks and commodities trade from dead ranges.
View DXY and SPX trades together as 25 point increments especially SPX.
AUD/USD big break is located at 0.7003 and the same story as last week. AUD/USD is going nowhere fast.
From 12 currency for 24 hour trades, here’s the lineup: GBP/JPY, EUR/JPY, EUR/AUD, EUR/CAD, GBP/USD.
GBP/JPY and EUR/JPY are fairly standard everyday for 24 hour trades as best trades. EUR/AUD and GBP/AUD gain advantage by not only wide ranges but a dead AUD. EUR/CAD is best of the wide range group which informs again, not much is happening today.
EUR/NZD at current 1.6207 is at bottom range 1.6178 and good for a quick 50 pips higher. EUR/AUD at 1.4652 trades dead center to middle range. Longs are located in the vicinity of 1.4562 while GBP/AUD also trades middle range and untouchable. Longs are located around 1.7395.
GBP/JPY at 163.30 is untouchable. Shorts are located from 163.82 or longs from around 162.61. GBP/JPY big break for lower is found today at 162.01.
GBP/USD range from Sunday 1.2174 to 1.2013 held. Watch shorts at 1.2130 and longs around 1.2013.

EUR/JPY big break for lower at 136.93 is a good guide for next week. Overall, short JPY cross pairs remains the strategy.
DXY traded 186 pips last week. The main problem pair within overall currency markets is USD/JPY and EUR/JPY. Then the question: how are currency pairs trading against each other within the respective universe.
USD/USD traded 500 pips last week but broken down from the vital 131 point, USD/JPY traded 155 pips below and 394 pips above. USD/JPY 155 pips below was perfectly normal. USD/JPY however at 394 = DXY 2 times and EUR/USD 2.5 times. USD/JPY is trading erratic and far to high ranges in relation to DXY and EUR/USD as its main counterparts. The story grows worse to JPY cross pairs.
USD/JPY Vs JPY cross Pairs
USD/JPY at 500 pips in relation to cross pair ranges trades as: EUR/JPY 429 pips, GBP/JPY 452, AUD/JPY 327, CAD/JPY 328 and NZD/JPY 259.
EUR/JPY is clearly the problem pair and earns last ranking for the 2nd week. USD/JPY correlates to EUR/JPY at 82% and minus 62% to EUR/USD. EUR/JPY against a high USD/JPY correlation transforms itself as a USD currency to match USD in USD/JPY
. At 429 pips equates to 2.5 times EUR/USD and 2.3 times DXY but below USD/JPY
The main factor and problem to USD/JPY is trade ranges higher than JPY cross pairs. Correct is JPY cross pairs trade higher ranges than USD/JPY.
Instead, USD/JPY trades even matches to EUR/JPY as USD/JPY Vs DXY at 2.3 times and 2.5 times EUR/USD. USD/JPY is clearly the leader to JPY cross pairs and consistent to overall currency market anchor pairs.
AUD/JPY, NZD/JPY and CAD/JPY as usual were perfect in relation to ranges and big trade weeks while GBP/JPY was erratic yet consistent to EUR/JPY.

When markets shifted in 1972 from Gold and 1% Bretton Woods ranges to interest rates, nobody had a clue what to do nor how how to trade. Bid and Ask spreads to interest rates went ballistic and out of control. Interest rate dealers profited far more than their fair share and knocked market prices off kilter.
When markets finally rightsized, the moving average and interest rates to current traded markets was born and became a permanent fixture since 1972. The moving average is vital today for trades but the moving average must be correct. A chart average is not correct. Add the CMT Association to the long list of criminals and non credible traders today. What a colossal waste of time.

Whatever the BOE decides, GBP/USD is expected to normal 50 ish pips. But this is GBP as GBP/USD maybe a middle currency pair but its assigned larger ranges than AUD/USD and EUR/USD.

The RBA raised OCR by 50 points and AUD/USD dropped 56 pips or almost 1 pip per 50 points. If short from 0.6993 to current 0.6926 lows then all have + 67 pips added to accounts. If short from 0.7047 then + 121 pips added to accounts.
If AUD/USD was oversold then AUD/USD would’ve traded 56 pips higher. The market doesn’t care about Central banks nor raises or drops.

What affect did interest rate changes and central bank words and deeds apply to EUR/USD? Nero effect as the market price doesn’t care.
If interest rates effect no changes to market prices, employment as the most lagging indicator available, extracts zero conversations to market prices and much less to overall monetary policy. Inflation achieved 7.5% in January and 6 months later, we’re beginning to hear about major layoffs to big companies. Employment lacks a gauge to Monetary policy.

Action forex or whatever this thing is on my site was placed on site 12 and 14 years ago. I checked. Please exclude any commentary and proposed trades as they are wrong and not trusted. I don’t know how to eliminate from my site.
Please also exclude McGinley Dynamic from Investopedia as this is another whacked organization not to be trusted. If interested in the McGinley Dynamic, read exactly what I wrote as valid. I once had a massive problem with John McGinley when I wrote about his Dynamic on Investopedia.
The man is powerful and well connected. I haven’t investigated years later after my writings but I believe I stand by my words from all those years ago. John is a PHD from Harvard and put his life into that indicator. We later became friends with open discussions.
