Forex Crunches for the Weekend – October 8

A very busy week including Trichet’s last stand and the Non-Farm Payrolls has ended with a lot of action. The markets are now closed, and before another week starts (calmer this time?), it’s time for some longer term forex reads. Here are my picks. Enjoy!

When it all seemed that the euro manages to forget the debt crisis for a while and enjoy some good news from the new, Fitch poured cold water on the rally with a double downgrade of Italy and Spain.

  • Mike Kulej asks if it’s 2008 all over again, looking at the famous (or infamous) VIX index.
  • Lior Cohen provides a monthly outlook for gold and silver prices. The action is far from over.
  • Larry Greenberg analyzes the widening gaps between US and euro zone economic activities. More drops in EUR/USD?
  • Richard Woolnough at the Bond Vigilantes is “unwinding” the euro.
  • Andriy Moraru provides an in depth guide to position sizes. Great job!
  • James Woolley presents the concept of reverse trading, something that could improve your trading.
  • Casey Stubbs reminds us of the basic rules of forex trading that many have already forgotten. A great refresher.
  • Michael Greenberg reports and analyzes the $2 billion lawsuit that BNY Mellon got over forex rates.
  • Francesc Riverola announces that Rob Booker and  Jennifer Thornburg join the FXStreet ad network. Forex Crunch is even prouder being in this network!
  • Jamie Coleman at Forex Live, one of the best forex sites out there, is asking for your donation for the Buddy Walk. A great cause indeed.

Here are some long term articles published on Forex Crunch this week:

Yohay Elam: Founder, Writer and Editor I have been into forex trading for over 5 years, and I share the experience that I have and the knowledge that I've accumulated. After taking a short course about forex. Like many forex traders, I've earned a significant share of my knowledge the hard way. Macroeconomics, the impact of news on the ever-moving currency markets and trading psychology have always fascinated me. Before founding Forex Crunch, I've worked as a programmer in various hi-tech companies. I have a B. Sc. in Computer Science from Ben Gurion University. Given this background, forex software has a relatively bigger share in the posts.
