The easiest currency pairs to trade right now

How is it going trader?

In what currency pairs have you been focusing lately?

Please don’t tell me that majors…

From the way I see it, most of the majors are trading not in a clear market condition… Specially the EURUSD. So please, stop trading them!

Expand your horizon, yeah, you’ll have to pay more spread, but the odds will be on your favor, and that’s what we are all after, aren’t we?

I would rather trade an instrument with a larger spread, but with a clearer market condition, than a currency pairs with a tighter spread and have absolutely no idea of what the market is doing…

Please tell me this makes sense…

Here we go…

GBPCHF Analysis

The GBPCHF is one of the currency pairs with the clearest market condition… the moment you see it, the moment you realize how simple it is moving…

Here is the daily chart:

GBPCHF 1D

Its pretty clear that the GBPCHF is trading in a long term range, and it was recently rejected from an important support level, which means that it is likely to continue its way up until it hits the next LT resistance level at 1.5435.

AUDNZD Analysis

The AUDNZD is another chart that has clear swings and clear S&R levels.

Just take a look at the next chart:

AUDNZD 1D

What do you think about this one?

Quite clear isn’t it?

In this case, the AUDNZD broke through an important support level and now it is likely to continue moving down…

JPY Crosses

And of course, a few of the JPY crosses are still trading in a very clear bullish condition. So there is still some room on a few of them!

This is the beauty of being a market follower, you don’t have to worry about anything… If you see a clear market condition, you trade it, if its not clear you don’t trade it… And patiently look for entries on other instruments with clearer market conditions…

    Hi Raul . I think I am still struggling a bit with my entries. What do you think about the following setup for GBPJPY. Buy stop186.14 TP191.35 and SL185.14. Considering the range on the 1hr chart and that if it breaks above the range we then look for long opportunities.

  • Varahala Babu

    hi raul…can we take entry on the gbp/chf aud/nzd breakout of the previous daily candles ?

    • Raul Lopez

      Hello Varahala, I dont know my friend… I dont trade like that but if thats what your system tells you to do, just follow it!

  • Chad Hogan

    Raul,

    You mentioned before the GBPJPY was nearing a LT. Past price action looks unclear to me. It looks like it still has some way to go?? The hourly break out set up looks good. What do you think..

    • Raul Lopez

      It already broke through that level (it was a weekly level around 181.56), it is now trading in a bullish condition… Now, take a look at the short term charts, its trading in a very clear ST range… si there are many possibilities for us here…

      Please share your thoughts!

    Hey Raul,

    I have a buy stop on the GBPCHF and am trying to get on board AUDNZD. I think AUDUSD & AUDCAD could be as equally good. Cheers M8.

    • Raul Lopez

      I second you on the GBPCHF buy stop… and still waiting for clear levels in the AUDNZD, so I’m with you here…

      But not so sure about the AUDUSD… I dont like the way it had been trading in the last couple of months… it breaks through important levels back an forth, etc… so I wouldnt feel that comfortable trading it!

      What do you think?

    Specially Eur/Usd made my huge profits these days, so why do you say do not trade that ? Good volatility and very very very clear entry and exit levels were in this pair this week… ;) Moreover, it worked very well with tight SL and good TP levels. Risk-reward more than 1:3. Don’t agree with you that we should “stop trading them” !! Your suggested pair requires high SL range and you do not know if it will not be hit.
    I do not want to say, that you analysis is not correct, but most of your post are “waiting”, “looking”.. i prefer trading, not waiting.. of course, i do not trade if i do not see clear entry and exit levels.. but your daily charts, in my opinion, are not so good even for long term trading.
    No offense, that is only my opinion.
    If you are interested in, there would not be a problem for me to send you Eur/Usd trading strategy. Moreover, there is no complex indicators nor understandable things.

      Hello Vytautas…

      Usually the type of traders that read my blog are traders that are looking for trading advice and want to corroborate my analysis with theirs…

      Not to give signals… that would be useless…

      The idea is to help traders see and trade the market form a different perspective, to trade based on what the market is doing and not to use useless tools such as indicators, etc.

      Most of the time I pick a currency pair that will make traders think… if you are looking for your FREE lunch, this is not the place to get it!

      Now, about the EURUSD, I dont think its a good idea to trade it because it doesnt have clear levels, and if it doesnt have clear levels, there is no way of knowing what the market is likely to do… But of course, that is just the way I see the market, you and other traders might have a different opinion, and that’s alright!

      One of the things I like about the Forex market is that there is a great diversity in trading ideas…

      Good luck!
