Wed, 24 May 2017 19:13

Today, the Federal Open Market Committee released minutes of its latest policy meeting.

Wed, 24 May 2017 14:04

In this video, the Trader Guy looks at the currency pairs USD/JPY and AUD/USD for the May 24th session. USD/JPY — The USD/JPY pair initially fell during the day on Tuesday and then rallied enough to form a very positive looking candle. It looks like we are going to continue to go higher, maybe the 112.50 or so. The 112.00 will be resistive, but it looks as if we are trying to catch up...

In this video, the Trader Guy looks at the currency pairs EUR/USD and GBP/USD for the May 24th session. EUR/USD — As you can see, it has been a negative session during the day on Tuesday as 1.12 has offered a bit of resistance. Quite frankly, I am still bullish though. This has been a pretty impulsive move. So, a pullback makes quite a bit of sense. I think 1.10 should be massively supportive and that...
