Interested in automated trading with Mirror Trader?

FOREXAnalysis: I focused on the USDJPY in Friday’s weekly, writing that “the rise is best classified as a 3 wave advance (triangle wave b). Just like last week, the implications are to look for an early week top. A rally into 100.17/26 would be most welcome. Why? 100.17 is the post FOMC minutes close (hourly) and a significant volume level. 100.26 is the 61.8% of the decline from 101.53. Watch the rate along with the 30 year US bond (see below chart) to improve entry. Strong support is seen at the 61.8% retracement / trendline / large volume NFP hourly close of 133 6/32. It’s critical to be alert to pattern and market levels in the bond market in the current market environment. In fact, pattern and a support in the bond level helped us anticipate Wednesday’s reaction.” The USDJPY slightly exceeded the estimated resistance area but quickly reversed this morning. The 30 yr US Bond also reversed from just above the cited support.

FOREXTrading Strategy: Will probably do something soon…but need to see how the market trades over the next day before Tuesday night’s BoJ minutes.

LEVELS: 98.54 98.94 99.69 100.10 100.97 101.52

    Chesapeake Energy Analysts Change Their Tune

    By the end of the day Thursday, Chesapeake stock had regained all its lost ground and added 2.8% besides to close at $6.91. Merrill Lynch raised its rating on the stock from Underperform to Neutral and raised its price target on the stock from $6 to $10. Barclays analysts saw things differently: “We remain Underweight [on Chesapeake] shares due to high financial leverage and continued negative free cash flow outlook.” Barclays’ price target is $4, with an upside case of $15 per share and a downside case of $1 per share.

    AT&T agrees to buy Time Warner for $85 billion

    By Greg Roumeliotis and Jessica Toonkel NEW YORK (Reuters) - AT&T Inc said on Saturday it agreed to buy Time Warner Inc for $85.4 billion, the boldest move yet by a telecommunications company to acquire content to stream over its high-speed network to attract a growing number of online viewers. The biggest deal in the world this year will, if approved by regulators, give AT&T control of cable TV channels HBO and CNN, film studio Warner Bros and other coveted media assets. It will likely face intense scrutiny by U.S. antitrust regulators worried that AT&T might try to limit distribution of Time Warner material.

    8 Things You Should Never Keep in Your Wallet

    That overstuffed wallet of yours can’t be comfortable to sit on. It’s probably even too clunky to lug around in a purse, too. And with every new bank slip that bulges from the seams, your personal information is getting less and less safe. With just your name and Social Security number, identity thieves can open new credit accounts and make costly purchases in your name. If they can get their hands on (and doctor) a government-issued photo ID of yours, they can do even more damage, such as opening new bank accounts. These days, con artists are even profiting from tax-return fraud and health-care fraud, all with stolen IDs. We talked with consumer-protection advocates to identify the eight things

    Russia’s Oil Industry Is Making The Most Of A Weak Ruble

    While Russian federal revenue from oil and natural gas production has declined significantly in response to low oil prices, oil and natural gas companies have actually increased investments or only seen modest declines, according to the EIA. This was due to the rapid devaluation of the ruble due to international sanctions and lower oil prices. The country currently taxes hydrocarbon extraction and heavy oil exports in a structure that levies lower tax rates on companies under lower crude oil prices.

    Is Gold's Real Value $2,000 an ounce?

    KITCO NEWS - Gold steadies and is set to end the week higher, on track for its first weekly gain in four weeks and one expert sees the cards stacked in the metal's favor. Ken Hoffman of Bloomberg Intelligence released a report this month, which shows the current pressure in gold prices is namely driven by the looming rate hike - but those Fed concerns are just masking long-term positives for the metal. Gold was on track Friday to post its first positive weekly close in three weeks, many analysts suspect that the correction --which started with a 5% drop at the start of the month -- has run its course. December gold futures settled the day at $1,267.70 an ounce, up nearly 1.2% since Monday's open.
