Trading Setups / Chart in Focus:


The GBPUSD consolidated today and closed the day basically unchanged from yesterday. It looks like it’s finding some support off 1.5950 though, and we could potentially see a rotation higher into value before this pair resumes moving lower.

We will watch the resistance layer between the 8 and 21 day EMA’s for potential bearish price action trading setups in the coming days.

Forex Commentary:

The euro rose on Tuesday as investors bet Greece would pass an austerity package needed to avert a debt default, though traders said uncertainty about a long-term solution would limit further gains in the currency.

The euro last rose to $1.4396. It hit a session high after the Portuguese government said it plans to be scrupulous in meeting terms of a bailout.

The dollar rose 0.4 percent to 81.12 yen, while it fell to a record low of 0.8276 Swiss francs

Other Markets:

On Wall Street today stocks pushed higher for the second day in a row over optimism about a solution to Greece’s debit problems, however, volume was low which generally indicates sentiment is not strong.

The Dow added 145.13 points, or 1.21 percent, the S&P 500 gained 16.57 points, or 1.29 percent, and the Nasdaq added 41.03 points, or 1.53 percent.
