Nasdaq hit an all-time high today, SP500 is only pennies from doing the same and the lagging DOW could be there within a week. All this while USD and JPY are #1 & 2, whatever happen to Stocks Up - Dollar Down This is the upside down world the Federal Reserve has created, at some point this house of cards will come crashing down
Very interested but I have a couple of Qs if I may?
If you’ve identified the SW then do you not just place the Stop order for the direction of the SW? ie AUD/USD right now is USD strong and AUD weak so we would only put in a SELL order? Why put in a BUY order?
Regarding orders, why do you use 2 orders per SELL and BUY? Why not just put in one order each at double the amount and TP half of your position at 50 pips and then finish the rest at 100 pips?
(1) It catches a trade in the opposite direction should there be a pullback. Many currency pairs can go over 150 pips a day when volatile.
(2) I do it this way because I work so that I am not sat in front of the charts. So if trade hits the 50 TP then retraces I still have a profitable gain.
If you wish to do it different that’s up to you the result is the same .
Up day for NZD and JPY but no change in our rank order
Do you mean the mid price point of the D1 (daily) candle? Or are you looking at the H1 (hourly) candle to determine the midpoint?
The mid point price of the D1 candle determines where the upper and lower lines are drawn.
So the mid point of the closing candle on the 19/4/19 was1.6807 on AUD/NZD.
The upper limit is 30 pips up for a buy trade and 30 pips lower for the sell.
The hour chart is used to look at what the current trend is and confirming that the trend direction is correlating with the longer term trend at 1 day.
@K31thM3ll0r, Thank you for the clarification.
Looking at current SW Top Trade NZDUSD* we see price completely retraced Wednesday’s down move only to stop and reverse again at the 200ma on the 1hr chart, see the pin bar reversal at the 200ma , if you were playing the pullback on the 1hr chart that would have been your go short signal
Absolutely, I dream of trades like this after a hard week, 6 hours to go, 1 hour chart, anything for 5 pips
as for the nzus great consolidation from 4/8-4/16 on the daily. 4/17 was a crazy bar, however, i think signifies lower prices are to come. they did, and no bull bar on the daily would suggest otherwise hence. so yes, ill go out on a limb, and say that lower prices are to come. watch .6656. for entry. no need to be sarcastic, its boring, and helps zero. you dont dig the method, i understand, it will be ok.
Back to a retracting market, USDCHF is our new top SW Trade but this pair has been going sideways for last 4 trading days.
It looks like all the currencies are maintaining their strengths over the past few days.
As you can see, NZD had been weakening while USD had remained pretty much even over all H4 periods since before the 24th.
NZD hit its low on the 25th, but by then, the downward move was over.
I profited a little of the “pull back,” but then it turned into consolidation, and now it’s anyone’s guess as to what NZD will do from here.
Regarding the current top spot, USDCHF, neither USD nor CHF have been doing anything of interest in the past several days, and Dennis’ numbers show a difference of 1.54%, which is lower than the 2% he prefers.
I created a free indicator that I use to plot Dennis’ numbers for MT5. I think I am allowed to post it here according to the forum policies since it’s free.

Trading the Trend with Strong Weak Analysis)
based on the rankings, us is 1 nzd is 7. .6656 is still a watch. no daily candle suggests otherwise in my humble opinion. if you use a strength meter, which i do, set an alarm at this level. during the london session wrapping into the us session, take the trade if us is showing strength, and nz is weak, or basically neutral. but make sure us is strong. hope this helps.
its not showing currency label on right. what changes in MT5 has to be done in setting.
I pasted the currency labels manually using GIMP.
You can hover over the currency or used the data window (CTRL+D) if you want to see currency name and values.
we have some killer setups but will the market cooperate, USDCHF is just screaming buy me, but sometimes if a trade likes too good, and you know the rest
I’ll be watching GBPAUD. If you look at the Δ over the past day, you can see that GPB has gained in strength and AUD has lessened in strength. Looks like GBPAUD is consolidating on H1 right now, but if it goes back up, it has the potential for more pips.
How do we insert these GIMP? tried a couple of things but couldnt. Thanks
If you are unfamiliar with GIMP, use Microsoft Paint, which comes with all flavors of Windows. Simply open both the screenshot and the color bar in separate instances of “Paint,” then copy & paste the color bar into the screenshot you desire to put the legend. Finally, move it to the desired position.
