Janet did it! Print

Christmas has come early this year, at least for Forex traders. We had the Trump rally in stock markets and the US$ and then Janet followed through with her promise of the quarter point increase that everyone expected, and the Dollar has taken off again.

What was unexpected though was the even more upbeat tone of her statement from previous ones and responses to questions:

Has it all been over cooked? The Trump US$ rally seems to have kicked off on the basis that his policies will be inflationary and so interest rates will have to rise. Added to this, the Fed has been telling us all year there will be at least a modest rate increase. Next Wednesday 14th is the last opportunity the Fed and Janet Yellen have to do the deed, consequently the market is convinced it's a done deal and priced it in with the Trump rally.

But the TMEST swing chart is suggesting the dollar rally could be rolling over. So we had best trade what we see and not what we think, or have been told to think!

Markets have a habit of rising on rumours of good news and then promptly reversing when it's actually announced, as further expectations of good news slip away. Perhaps the market is coming to the idea that the US economy, talked up over the last year is just that, talk.

If Trump is to boost the economy it's not going to happen instantly. Any delays, and if the US economy actually turns out to be weak at the start of 2017, could result in what usually happens in the year following a two term presidency. Recession.

Great Reversals - The Doji Sandwich Print
Written by Site admin   

There are plenty of price patterns to trade from the classic Flags
and Head & Shoulders to the Harmonics that will feature in a future
webinar. Some of the simplest can be the best and some years ago an
old friend, Bill Eykin, coined the Doji Sandwich.

 
 
It's amongst the most powerful of the three candle patterns, simply
a norrow range candle is sandwiched between two much longer ones
with the smaller 'Doji or Spinner' candle stuck in between, not
sure of where it to go next. As can be seen on this daily chart,
when it forms it can lead to some excellent moves.
