This Week’s Top 5 Market Movers: Variations On The Prevailing Themes
02/17/2013

by Cliff Wachtel, Global Markets

A market outlook for traders and investors in all global risk asset markets, focused on stocks and currencies

As we discussed in part 2 of our post on last week’s lessons for this week, the things that have really moved markets over the past months have been:

  1. Hopes for more stimulus
  2. Entrenched technical momentum
  3. Excessive complacency about EU risk

Sure, actual economic reports occasionally have had some influence. For example, last week’s weak EU GDP figures had some fleeting effect.

GBPUSD: Multi-year Triangle Consolidation
02/13/2013

GBPUSD Technical Analysis Update – WC 11th February – 2013 – Triangle Consolidation Pattern

by Nick Simpson, Forex-FX-4X

  • Cable has seen a corrective move higher, after hitting the lowest level since August 2012 (1.5628) earlier in the week.  The longer term chart below (fig 2) shows the pound/dollar pair is  trading within a triangle consolidation pattern and has now hit the lower trend line – a key technical area.
  • GBPUSD is now trading at a longer term price pivot and has closed the week above the 1.5757 previous support/resistance flip, but under the 1.5826 prior swing low (see fig 1).
  • With the above in mind, we would not be surprised to see an element of consolidation in this 1.5750 – 1.5830 zone in the near term.
