Traders decreased number of transactions in Euro FX futures market by 6,124 contracts last night. It is a substantial amount but not enough to bring the current trend to its end. The euro downtrend remains intact for the moment. We shall see some further drop in prices in coming sessions. Euro futures added 73% in total open interest since the last extreme (1.42) excluding December’s delivery rollover. Amount of contracts added reached 170,000. It is an exact level reached on 30 Sep 2011 from where the declining prices began to correct from 1.31 to 1.42. From the chart we note that marginal change in new transactions coming in is fading. We might see a significant correction in coming days/weeks. Only 10% drop in open interest would give a reason to enter long positions.

We saw another 1,239 new contracts in this market last night. Another strong confirmation if the current trend. A word of caution- open interest in gold comex futures is decreasing substantially over the last week questioning the strength of current higher prices in GLD. As a Australian dollar highly correlated with the yellow metal, we might see price correction before the trend resumes higher.
