Let's use Derivatives OPTIONS AND FUTURES to analyse EUR!
The month began with the down movement but then the price returned into the upper half of the “Options corridor”. On the first attached image (daily EUR/USD chart) we can see a resistant on the Balance Line (1.12250).
I would like to repeat, that this Line as well as both green and gray zones are results of EUR Options trading on Chicago Exchange. Everything is based on real data and not on some questionable and subjective parameters.
Anyway, this situation indicates an uptrend. But let’s not hurry. There is another FX-DERIVATIVE, which can help us. EURO FUTURES!!! Look at the second attached image. This is H4 EUR/USD chart.
I put some blue zones on the graph. Those zones indicate price levels where most of bad traders will have Margin Calls! That’s right! So the market makers can use that for their evil purposes. The data for those zones I also took from the CME website (https://www.cmegroup.com/
Ok, so right now the price is between the Balance Line and the blue (let’s call it “Margin Zone”). Even thou we have the uptrend (because of the options), I would wait until the price will move above the Margin Zone (1.13122 - 1.13386). However on the level (1.14391 – 1.14127) there is another Margin Zone which actually is located on the maximum of the last month. Will there be a resistance?
To begin trading SHORT, the price will have to move below the Balance Line and below the lowest Margin Zone (1.11214 – 1.10950).
