Are you new to FX or curious about your trading IQ?

FOREXAnalysis: The rally from the March low would consist of 2 equal legs at 1.5783. Don’t lose sight of the big picture. A year triangle was broken to the downside in February and price has returned to the breakout point. In fact, the line that connects the 2009 and 2012 lows (in red on chart) is just above 1.5783 on Friday. The 61.8% retracement of the decline from the January high is 1.5788 and the November 2012 low is 1.5822.

FOREX Trading Strategy: Same as EURUSD…can’t say we’ve topped yet but we are close. CPI in the morning could trigger something.

LEVELS: 1.5548 1.5600 1.5652 1.5783 1.5822 1.5878
