Another up day for Top Trade CHFJPY, we can now put this one in the win column, our basic rule would be to take half profit here and let the rest run, how long you let it run is up to you

Please what is your entry trigger ?? I had read somewhere that it is the break or 34 MA or 200 MA on daily timeframe. I don’t understand how you get in CHFJPY !

CHF is strongest and JPY is the weakest, and there is more than 2% difference in the two SW values.

The basic rule is to open a trade on the day a new pair takes the first place… but as Dennis stated before it is up to you: what do you prefer.

I am following this topic since a few months and I am following the basic rule at the moment: open when a pair becomes top pair, and use the view Dennis has on the current market condition.

But you can also use the signal as a heads up: use the nr 1 pair as “best pair” to watch and create your own entry point: for example: wait for a pullback (to a certain moving average eg).

While the rest of the market is in consolidation mode our Top Trade CHFJPY just keeps on giving. If you are in the trade I hope you are enjoying the ride, if not in the trade I will try to identify a secondary entry point on a pullback

Love this thread.

FWIW, I have been out of CHF/JPY but agree its top trade for another week - have buy order set above Friday’s high, TSL below Friday’s low: 2% account capital risk.

Also have similar pyramid orders set at +1%, +2% and +3%.

It was a great week for Top Trade CHFJPY but Thursday we had a small pin bar reversal with confirmation on Friday, there is nothing on the weekly chart to suggest this move is over, after a big run we might just need to pull back a bit before the next leg up. I will be looking for support at the 200 ma on the 1hr chart for a re-entry. The rest of the market is doing nothing so be greatfull for this one trade

Dennis, would this constitute a bounce on the 1hour 200MA?

it could have been, but it has failed to hold that rally and price is now below the 200ma , from here a break back above the 200 ma would be the next entry point.

big-time consolidation, the bottom list is the 7 pairs that I do most of my trading in and as you can see there is just no separation

In our Top Trade CHFJPY we got a little Pin Bar reversal, price still is below the 200 on the 1hr chart but if we can clear that then at least a test of last weeks high should be in play. Nice bounce in GBP, this is one to watch

This strategy has been posted previously and I’m revisiting the concept for traders that have recently joined the Babypips Forums… While the market is slow and very few opportunities appear to be on offer this week, I will point out another strategy that can be used with Dennis’s data.

At a glance of Dennis’s Strong Weak Ranking Chart the USD appears to be far stronger and strengthening over say the weakest currency the JPY. If you study the percentage values you will realize that the exact opposite is the reality… Since the 20th January USD has actually weakened against the JPY…

USD 20th - 0.86% | USD 21st - 0.55% | USD 22nd - 0.57% against the base JPY 0.00% Value
(See Below)

Now if you look at the USDJPY on the 1 Hour Chart (See Below) you can see that has created some opportunities to profit even while the currency markets are in consolidation…

Also have a look at GBPAUD, EURJPY and maybe a few other pairs and apply the same theory and see if you could have profited over the last say 5 - 7 days… from intra SWA opportunities.

That`s true. USDJPY is a perfect example of this logic, as NZDUSD and CHFJPY.

Personally I`m using the SW as a Watch list for:

  1. See the movements of the pairs on the time, and not just on the last day.
    I’m using different colors on each pair so I can visually track them.
  2. Find pairs that are trending to the extremes, or extremes that are losing steam.
  3. And finally, to check the extremes as a moment of either go with the trend, or find overbought oversold pairs.

Again, those numbers relate to the relative distance from the 4H 200MA, if I’m correct, so they show the bigger picture.

But when to enter and when to exit is the question: devil is on the detail!
