This should be going higher to break 4475 high.
Since yesterday this 30 mins has helped alot....
Patience is virtue. The sooner we learn this all, sooner we can start walking to the bank. Good Luck to all of us
The trick is to wait the price meet ur limits, instead of one jumping in.. however scalps is a totally different scenario and is not everyone's cup of tea

Not native german, sure we will have some around here, but in my knowledge Reich is Empire, and that has historically negative connotations.

Despite the procedence of each individual citizen, the USA doesn't have this radically different cultures and languages to deal with, their society is homogeneous. They can concentrate into being competitive. That's for me the big difference.
On the other hand, Germany is slave of their past decisions (like any individual or group). The Euro itself puts them in an imposible situation, sooner or later they will have to accept losses in favour of wealth. If they crash the peripherals, who the hell will buy Wolkswagen (people's car) ;-)

The US has the capability of paying off its debt. A federal sales tax could probably do it in a couple of years. In 2000 we had a budget surplus. The main problem is political gridlock. I don't know when that is going to change. Sometimes things have to be really bad before people insist on change. Sometimes they just change slowly over time.

Anyway, 1.445 (upper past kumo for Chikou Span) is still an important level for the daily close. If we don't close above, another bounce is possible, to the downside.
Good luck to you all.

Euro bonds would mean the formation of a federal government which has the authority to tax all of the sovereign states. They're not at that point yet in the EU. I don't know if they will cease to exist or how they will change - some countries may leave the EU but they will probably keep using the euro . The euro will still be there. In the long run I think the Europeans will realize that they need to stay united for true continental strength. But I think there will be turbulence in the coming months, and problems in their financial system which are not easily solved

Make what you want out of it but that's a great clue EUR isn't going down anytime soon.

I agree with this point. I've been trying to think this through logically:

2. European governments have been comitting to sizable austerity plans, forced to in most cases, whereas the US is politically retarded and has done very little (as there is no-one to answer to in the short term).
3. High ranking EU officials obviously think that the situation is under control at the moment and that sustainability is achievable (ok, it doesn't seem every market participant thinks this, but there are obviously some big players backing the euro as you can see by the hangman candle support on the monthly chart and the fact we're not at 1.20)
4. I THINK THIS IS THE KEY POINT: China and a lot of the large developing nations are concerned with exactly what is the case - the USD is the most liquid currency market, and this is a major economic advantage for the americans - these developing country governments are actively trying to change this, and they will over time as the US can't dominate their economies any more.
I think the euro will be supported until it is proven that the countries in it can't get back to sustainability, probably via a default, - and i think this proof is far away at the moment. Even if there is a default from a country like one of the PIGS, it doesn't necessarily mean a collapse of the banking system as the ECB will step in. Its likely a defulting country will be chucked out of the euro (or something along these lines) and the EUR will probably strengthen in the following years given the stronger average of the remaining parts. Italy / Spain default is a different situation but let them try and get back to sustainability first - rememebr Italy has been managing its debt for a long time and whos to say they won't be able to continue given all the political support.
n.b. if anyone has any data that they think either supports or disproves these comments i'd love to see it as i can't be bothered to source all the individual data myself

everyones made a lot out of the riots but no-one seems to get what really happened in London. There are a lot of scumbags in England. This is just a super-hysterical collaboration of them, nothing more. You didn't see normal people going out of their jobs to demonstrate like in Greece, where it was political, just a large mob of c0cks on the rob. like the mayday riots of <2000. look it up if you don't know about these

Emerging nations have been diversifying away from the dollar for over a decade now . that is a long slow process underway. Twenty years ago nearly 100% of the assets held by international central banks were US dollars. Now it is around 60%. That is part of the reason for the decline of the dollar over the last decade. But the US dollar will continue to have an important role in the global economy. the US is still the world's largest economy (the EU taken together is larger but that includes countries which do not use the euro) and the rest of the world depends to a large degree on the buying power of the American consumer.

A true default could roil the credit markets all over the world. i don't know if it is going to happen but we could see a collapse of a major bank in the EU and the inability of the financial authorities to prevent it. That is the real risk to the EU in the coming months.

Euro crosses remain the best and easiest to trade.
Made tons of pips today and always with all humility. I will keep posting trades whenever I can...or general comments.
While economic analysis is good, unfortunately daytraders ( even swing traders) dont care about these at all. They dont make sense per pocket. They are good for Warren Buffets LOL.
What works is a strategy that tracks what you trading with high risk/reward.
Euro is on the verge of breakout now...holding above this week to next calls for 17350ish in months to come.
Good luck everyone !

The E/U peaking out over resistance so will watch for a daily candle close above 1.4474. If we do im entering on a small pullback. A zoomed out EU chart shows a upper resistance that could be tested again from a breakout here. GL all.
