This Week’s Swing Trading Round-Up; 3rd February 2013

This Week’s Swing Trading Round-Up; 3rd February 2013

No new swing trades were taken this Week as not a single set-up on my watch list created conditions that fitted with my pre-planned analysis.

Quite amusing was the USD:CHF set-up I’d been watching that not only ignored potential support areas I’d identified for a possible swing long, but literally crashed through them as if they didn’t exist!

Despite this, USD:CHF still remains within the identified falling wedge so I’ll keep watching it with a view to trading a 2nd break-out on the long side. For now, I don’t fancy being short  as the number of green candles on this chart even in spite of the down trend still suggest there may be buyers around:

Another set-up I’d been watching was the mid Week retrace on Cable with a view to entering short. I’d planned on taking the chart screen shots and posting the analysis here, but totally forgot about it.  By the time I remembered on Friday afternoon I flicked open the chart to find I’d missed the 2nd greatest single day sell-off since September 2011 !

As things stand there’s nothing in the charts shouting at me right now and I’m not sure where my next trader will be. Indices look good for at least a small pull back, Yen pairs will probably pull back before making new highs but I don’t fancy fighting that steam train. AUD:NZD, although bearish at the moment is nearing the bottom of its long term price range and may be creating a bullish falling wedge ahead of a future rally, but again, I don’t see anything thats imminent on any chart without seeing some further price action.

As soon as I spot my next trading candidate, I’ll post up the details.

Hope you are trading well.

    I’ve entered long on USD:CHF at 0.9094 based on a nice intraday pattern I can see.

    I’ve no idea at this stage whether I’ll run it as a swing trade, just going to see how it develops over the next few hours and will update this evening if I’m to keep it.

    Sorry I’ve not updated on the USD:CHF position, been without a PC for the last 2 days.

    Still holding the trade, its showing a fair profit, but I’ve not yet had chance to look at the chart.

    Todays USD:CHF price action not looking attractive on any time frame so I’ve decided to abandon this trade at 0.9168 to give a profit of 74 pips.
