EURRUB the Short that Gives Both at both ends.

Hi, I like the idea of a $EURRUB short, I expect both the Euro to devalue and for the Ruble to be one of the strongest Currencies for short/Medium term, technically. Plus you get a massive carry interest rate differential, longer you hold the bigger the interest. I have covered my 'Bearish' technical view on the EURUSD quite extensively. Here are some quick hit charts and a clip on that, Both Weekly An Daily. Here is todays EURUSD Saxo Chart However, Here is the USDRUB. large Weekly TF shows a Head & Shoulders. Likely Key Level of Significance [KLoS], = 65 plus we also have an Inv HVF set up on this level. [2nd chart]

Pound Flash Crash predicted by HVF Theory – GBPUSD & GBPJPY

Hi,   We were expecting continuation for a downside break on GBP across a number of pairs, especially GBPUSD & GBPJPY. We had an Inverted HVF [Hunt Volatility Funnel] in an advanced stage. Here were our scenariocasts on these pairs including some from private clients on basecamp: A GBPJPY Scenariocast from September   A GBPUSD progression from an earlier scenario, pre-flashcrash.     The Flash Crash through Target GBPUSD   A graduates draw from premium Basecamp on the GBPUSD:     Subsequent Progress ==>     Melt Down Through Target!     Fundmanetally these were the 'reasons'. [But how were we positioned before, if these were true?] https://www.poundsterlinglive.com/gbp-live-today/5558-gbp-to-eur-and-usd-manufacturing-production   How Ironic, at thinnest trade time

Warning against Shorting the FTSE100 on Bloomberg

Dont short the FTSE100, just for the first RSI 70 crossover!   A First overBought RSI, is never sufficient justification for shorts. Below is 6 successive cross overs on a monthly chart from 2005 at 5375, till the peak at the end of 2007 at 6800's some 2.5 years and 1400 plus points later. http://www.slideshare.net/FrancisHuntTheMarket?utm_campaign=profiletracking&utm_medium=sssite&utm_source=ssslideview   MultiTimeframe analysis, cross asset analysis, price patterns. Don't confuse the markets with the state of the economy or the collectives mood. https://youtu.be/0E6iX_rAPUA Warm Wishes Francis

We just waiting for the hammer to fall, hammer to fall.. give it to me one more time!

Client Question:   Does the ponzi scheme even have to end ?   As you know the mere whiff of QE will send markets advancing. What's stopping the nonsense from stopping at all ?   If the dominant trend of the market is up, even if you have sensible morals as a trader why trade against it. My point here is the perpetrator is the one making the rules so he is unlikely to ruin his own party.   I will admit I'm not an economist but can clearly see the manipulation taking place.   The debt has been growing for over 30 years what and when can make it unsustainable.
