    I took a quick look at the charts and our Triangle are negative on this market.

    All the best,

  3. Harold,

    Thank you for your feedback. At the present time we are positive on the euro. This may change sometime in the future based on our Trade Triangle technology, but for the moment we remain positive.

    All the best,

  4. Hi, do you guys have the backtested results for these strategies using the trade triangles?
    I know there were one too many terrible whipsaws for certain counters during periods when the markets were ranging.

    Are there reccommended Counters to use these strategies on? Say for forex and stock indices?

    1. Colin,

      Thank you for your feedback and comment. We should have something very interesting for you in the next day or two. I think you'll get a lot out of it.

      All the best,

  5. What is your opinion re the euro over the next 2 or 3 months? And your advice long or short.

  6. Is there somewhere that describes how to interpret and use the trade triangle strategy? I receive email trend analysis, but what is this???

    1. Dear Lance,

      I have included a few links within this comment reply that I think will help you in your quest to understand the Trade Triangle strategy as well as the Chart Analysis score which you will see in your Trend Analysis emails.

  7. Hi,

    How far this US dollar will be ib bearish move. Any updates about USD CHF. Any chance of getting back to 1.0500 relly.


  8. Mahmad,

    I would just follow the trend until it ends. Predicting tops or bottoms in any market is impossible to do on a consistent basis.

    All the best,
