Analysis for 8th to 12th February
All scenarios are based on 'IF/THEN' scenarios that the Bindal FX traders map out and use whether it be on swing trades shown below, or intraday trades used in the Bindal FX LIVE room every day. If the price does not map out to the plan, we simply move on and look for a new opportunity rather than trying to 'manufacture' a position - to learn more about how to join our LIVE Trading Broadcasts and LIVE Trading Webinars email email@example.com

Key Support: 1830
Key Resistance: 1750/60, 1690
GOLD - Last week's Trade If/Then scenario fired beautifully on Gold and turned into a really nice move. For the coming week, our position hasn't changed and as long as we remain below 1830, in the short term we are bearish. 1830 is a really key pivot level, and on a pull back to here, as long as this level holds we will be looking to continue on the short side (primary scenario). If 1830 cannot hold price below, and we move back above, then this will have been the 3rd failed attempt to break and hold below in the last few weeks, which would indicate a real reluctance to move lower. If this 'fake out' occurs and we break back above the Bindal Green Pivot, then we will look to go long on any pullback thereafter.
FX Pair: USDCHF
Short Term Trend: Range
Key Support: 0.8920
Key Resistance: 0.8920
USDCHF - overall this has been in a firm down trend for quite some time, but has spent the last 2 months consolidating nicely. Last week's Trade If/Then scenario painted the picture in the chart you see below (4-hour chart) that we have a confluence of setups that could trigger, with an ascending triangle and inverse H&S pattern. If you are a break out trader, or trading lower time frames this will have given some very nice long opportunities from this alert. A pullback is now happening on the 4 hour chart, and as long as price holds above 0.8920, we will be looking to take longs somewhere near the key support/neckline and the green pivot. If price backs below 0.8920, then we would consider this quite bearish and would look for a continuation of the longer-term trend.
Key Support: 35,900
Key Resistance: 38,600; 40,200; 42,000
BITCOIN - Last week's Trade If/Then scenario fired beautifully on Bitcoin giving us a really nice run up, a move of around $4000, or a 12% gain which is a fantastic return. Nothing has changed for us the chart is still bullish for us at this moment in time. There are 2 potential long scenarios in play right now as show by the Chart below. We will be patient with this and wait for a really nice obvious entry to add in. We have no preference over either scenario, but as long as we remain above the Bindal FX Green Pivot, then we will be looking at only the long side on either one of these scenarios. Shorts only come into play on a decisive break below $35,900.
