Technical analysis 2010/10/08 EUR/USD, GBP/USD, NZD/USD


It’s very difficult to make any decisions connected with currency trade while expecting one of the most important macroecomonic indicators, Nonfarm Payrolls, to be published. Judging by Forex Calendar, the previous value was -54К; the predicted value is +5К and it can boost Dollar quite a lot. Also one has to take into account that by the time of yesterday’s evening and today’s morning, the signs of trend reverse have appeared in case of some currency pairs. However, we should not expect any significant movements until the indicator is published. Probably one of the best decisions is to stop trading at all, see what will happen at the currency market, and start trading on Monday.
