IG's Trade of the Week

Recommended Posts

CB is taking on the Dax this week, nothing if not brave calling a short with a stop above 12551 (or more conservative above 12740), so far looking good but also looks to have a far bit of support to work through before first target of 12070 on what looks to be an upward sloping chart though admittedly a very gentle incline.


Watch Dow for clues as to which way this is heading. The Dow also appears to be struggling today but it too has a far bit of support underneath, not least the 100ma, if Dow can take that on the 1 hour we may well be on for a retest of the trendline on the dax chart.

The Cohn news helped the trade to target but it was already well on it's way. Pity the IG staff having to call a trade every Monday morning (at circle A), looked better when attacking that resistance at B, after breaking resistance the obvious target was C.


Being more short term if I was in this trade the initial target was good (1341) and if there was a determined push through bar then stay in, but the level was recognised and price turned back so I would have been content to get out and look for a possible re-entry.


For a longer term trader the daily chart shows good potential for continued gains if the 1341 level breaks.

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
