Forex: CAD gained versus the USD as commodities advanced and risk appetite rose
Jun 21 2010, 02:42


USD Dollar (USD) – The Dollar weakened versus most majors as Europe's stress tests eased Forex trading investors' concerns leading risk appetite higher. NASDAQ and Dow Jones ended almost flat with 0.11% and 0.16% respectively after a choppy trading session. Crude Oil gained by 0.73% closing at 77.18$ a barrel. Gold (XAU) gained by 0.69% closing at 1,258$ an ounce after making record all time highs at 1262.40. No economic data expected today.



EURO (EUR) - The Euro finished unchanged versus the Dollar on Friday as debt concerns eased and investors decided to end their bets the currency will continue declining. Stress tests on European banks helped risk appetite rise as worries about the health of the financial system weakened. Overall, EUR/USD traded with a low of 1.2353 and a high of 1.2416. EUR/USD gained from its 4 year lows and is headed to its first Fibonacci retracement which is located at 1.2620. Today, ECB President Trichet will testify before the European Parliament in Brussels. EUR/USD - Last:  1.2415



British Pound (GBP) – The Pound gained slightly versus the Dollar on Friday after risk appetite rose following stress tests in the Euro Zone and higher than expected Mortgage Approvals. Overall, GBP/USD traded with a low of 1.4770 and a high of 1.4886. GBP/USD reached the 50% Fibonacci retracement at 1.4875 of the downtrend which started in April. If the pair remains above that level a Long position is preferred. No economic data expected today. GBP/USD - Last:  1.4835



Japanese Yen (JPY) The Yen gained versus the Dollar on Friday as no major economic releases made investors focus on the weaker unemployment claims that were released on Thursday that lowered the appeal for the Dollar as a safe haven. Overall, USD/JPY traded with a low of 90.44 and a high of 90.96. USD/JPY is moving downwards and headed toward the support at 90. No economic data expected today. USD/JPY-Last: 90.50

Leading Index came out 0.9% better than 0.8% expected. Overall, USD/CAD traded with a low of 1.0207 and a high of 1.0312.

Our team of experts and financial trainers provide personal assistance and guide clients to financial success. We provide daily analysis and market reviews to our clients giving them a better understanding of the market and helping them trade profitably.

6. From your experience, what advice would you give a person who wants to enter the forex world?
My advice to the beginning trader entering the Forex world is as follows:
• Learn the market and understand what you’re getting into.
• Research and find the broker that suits your needs and wants. Look for a good offering but more importantly customer service, don’t go for the low rates offer without being certain they have a good customer service department. From my extensive experience in the Forex world your key to success will be your client-broker relationship. I can honestly say that at XForex they put an emphasis on servicing clients, which is so important.
