A Love of Markets

For all its flaws, finance is the engine that drives much of the world as we know it. And free markets are the conduit for taking fanciful business ideas to the fruition of products and services that make life better, creating the ground on which innovative dreamers stand and providing the rest of us with an opportunity to be a part of it all. As a seasoned market technician, I'm trained to follow trends and identify investing and trading opportunities. miAnalysis is the forum for sharing my thoughts and musings about what's going on in markets. Welcome. It's a pleasure to have you. -Chris Burba, CMT

Time to Short the Yen

August 5, 2014, at 9:51 a.m. EDT

Good morning, all. My Tuesday post on TraderPlanet this week is about buying USDJPY (shorting the yen) (http://www.traderplanet.com/commentaries/view/166954-time-to-short-the-yen/). It’s a range breakout set-up with nicely contained risk. These are great trades because the follow-through is often pretty good. And a short yen trade (or short FXY) would be consistent with the bullish price structure for the Dollar Index. Keep in mind, though, that in the intermediate term the euro could take the biggest hit among the major currency pairs as the dollar strengthens (http://www.traderplanet.com/commentaries/view/166912-dollar-rally-could-hit-euro-hardest/ ). Enjoy your day and good trading, everyone. My best, Chris Burba, CMT Read More →

Greetings, everyone. It’s time for me to get back into the swing of things at miAnalysis after a hiatus. Here’s a study about going contrarian when market breadth drops to extremes that signal a short-term capitulation. Be good to yourselves and look for more updates to come. http://www.seeitmarket.com/sp-500-stock-market-breadth-study-13697/ Read More →
