Food for Thought

Just a very quick post today as my morning has been hijacked by traffic jams and an ill son, though he’s not seriously ill.

I posted a chart on twitter last night showing that the rising wedge that I posted yesterday morning had evolved over the day’s bullish break into a rising channel, and that the pattern formed from the morning low yesterday was a rising wedge, that is now, just after the open, breaking down.


The Euroblown

I was intrigued to look at this Slope post from nearly five years ago which stated:

Let’s notice that a downside violation of 1.2330 completes a massive 4-year top pattern that could “unhinge” the EUR altogether and send it into a vertical tailspin towards 1.1640/50 on the way to parity with the USD — a move that certainly will get the attention of the ECB and the Fed, which vowed to defend the integrity of the EC last weekend.

It may have seemed nuts at the time, but with this enormous symmetric triangle that has been broken (and the Euro plunging anew this morning), we could well be at parity this year!
