Anna's Financial Market Analysis

All forex traders focus on the EUR/USD - primarily for two reasons. It is the most liquid, and is also the pair with the tightest spreads. However, what most fail to realise is that is the most political of all currencies. Indeed, I could go further, and say this is no longer a free floating currency. Most traders find it almost impossible to trade, and yesterday gave us a classic reason as to why!

Primary trading tools - helping the retail forex trader to fight back!
In this episode from a recent live training room, Anna explains some of the reasons why the forex market is such a difficult one to trade. As a retail trader the odds are most definitely not stacked in our favour. However, help is at hand, and the methodology is not new. It has been around for over 100 years, but using what Anna calls primary trading tools which are all leading ( and free ) levels the playing field, allowing retail forex traders to compete on an equal footing once again....

Market disharmony and disconnect set to continue
With the US now back open for business, and the NFP data duly released, markets can at least return to normal following round 2 of the fiscal cliff soap opera. But what is normal? Can anyone truly believe these statistics, and with equity markets surging higher, the disconnect between economic reality and risk assets seems set to continue. For the trader, it's simply a case of watching the right charts such as the VIX and trading with a leading indicator, such as volume....

Don't write off the US dollar just yet!
Round two of the fiscal cliff saga has once again opened the old debate and the the role of the US dollar as the currency of first reserve. Leading the way are the Chinese, suggesting that a 'de Americanised world' might be more appropriate - perhaps the yuan could be used instead? This is all seems highly unlikely and no doubt once the current situation is resolved, and it will be, the status quo will be established once again. For the foreseeable future, the US dollar remains the currency to watch, and in...

The spirit of a genius returns!
This is a story of one of the great inventors and visionaries of our time, and yet few people are aware of his name. He died penniless and alone, and yet without his genius, life would be very different today. It is ironic therefore that his spirit has returned, this time with another visionary who is looking to take on the motor industry in his name!...

Political tantrums and economic data - an interesting mix!
This week is dominated by politics and brinkmanship. The fiscal cliff beckons once again, and no doubt a last minute resolution will be achieved - but if not, the NFP data on Friday could be a little thin! In Italy Silvio is trying to stay out of jail, and the ECB is also trying to do the same for the euro! Chinese data dominates along with Australia, so a great deal of focus on risk and risk assets. All in all, another interesting week for the markets, which appear, for the time being at any rate, to be ta...
