Forex Strategy 03.11.2013: Stay Short EUR/SEK and GBP/USD, Long AUD/USD

Ilya Spivak

I sold EURSEK at 8.7315 expecting Risksbank to shift to a neutral monetary policy stance in 2013. I added to the position at 8.6409 as a corrective rebound launched in early January faltered. Positioning now warns of a bounce, which I will treat as an opportunity to add to the trade below 8.3906.

I also continue to hold short GBPUSD at 1.5662. My latest revised objective at 1.4963 has been overcome and I will look for a push below 1.4860 to expose 1.4777.

Finally, I have added a long AUD/USD position at 1.0238 and continue to hold the trade, initially aiming for 1.0365. A stop-loss will be activated on a daily close below 1.0114, the March 4 low.
