Modest gains in NZD, AUD but quiet otherwise in Asia
I think the basing in the NZD is an important development which could have implications for other pairs. NZD/CHF has bottomed out at an important Fibo retracement, AUD/NZD looks toppy now at 1.2000 and the NZD/USD made decent gains after poor-ish trade data, usual signs of a bottom.
The cable also looks reasonably strong after basing at a 6.8% retracement, and that after a double-bottom formed. I’ve added to my small long-term long position.
Not sure on EUR, but I think the banking reforms might be important in that they could start to drive savings out of the EZ and into the GBP or the CHF? EUR/USD looks and feels like a sideways non-event.
USD/JPY looks to be in range trading mode across all timeframes.
Finally, I’m still long AUD/USD and will look to trade a short-term .9260/.9360 range on the way to .9625/50.
