The Dynamic Trading Approach

Economic Days
While common sense would lead us to use only empirical
results, i.e. business day observations, can we assume that vola­tility is the same day in and day out? Obviously not. On some days markets move more than on other days. We will call these days «Economic Days», where a corporate buyout or natural di­saster fundamentally impacts the price of an asset.
On most davs. market volatility will be low since substan­tial «Economic Days» do not occur that often. The overall price movement (volatility) that will occur in any market will simply be the summation of all price movements both subdued and ex­treme. When the analvst is forecasting volatility, he cannot do so blindly. He must adjust his projections based on the number of «Economic Days» that have already occurred over his sample period. After counting the «Economic Days» that have already occurred, he will have a better feel for the remaining number of expected «Economic Days». While we can never be certain of what may occur, applying simple principles of probability can provide insights.
common sense — здравый смысл,
day in day out — изо дня в день,
buyout —выкуп, приобретение
контрольного пакета акций,
to impact —влиять,

It's all about PROFITS
Reiving only on chart support and resistance is not very ef­fective, as these levels can be penetrated easily in strong trending markets and often leave the analyst feeling 'lost' when the price enters uncharted territory. Most intra-day players do not care whether the greenback closes higher or lower in the US, as they only trade between 8:00am and 5:00pm during their own time
zone. Projected targets that are 150—300 points away from the current rate are therefore of no practical interest to them. While the direction of major trend is important. what an intra-dav trader needs is an approach that will enable him to profit continuously on normal trading days. In an uptrend, for example, a 50 to 80 point rise may be followed by a 20—30 point pullback and then another rise of 60—80 points. The secret is to develop a method by which one can buy on such pullbacks, get the profit and exit in time. I sincerely believe that the Dynamic Trading Approach does just that by capturing the ups and downs of intra-day as well as day to day moves. It has worked for us in forecasting the mar­ket moves with 65—70 per cent accuracy (3 to 5 intra-day and 1 —2 daily forecasts every trading day over the last 8 years).

At the beginning of December 1995 dollar/DM broke above 1.4435. But the resistance at 1.4580 proved to be too strong. The subsequent retracement from this area helped to build uptrend pressure. Another assault on the upside is possible.
In January a break above the 1.4545/80 zone is likely to trigger a rally to 1.5045 with the medium term objective of 1.56/1.58.
Dips will find support in the 1.428/65 band.
Recommendation Hold longs and add on dips to 1.4340/00. Keep the stop/reverse below 1.4265/60. Cover longs on rallies to 1.4545/1.48.
Loss of 1.4265 will indicate a correction towards the 1.40/1.38 area. Reinstate longs here, stop/reverse below 1.37—for 1.3455.
USD/DEM technical commentary (31 JAN—01 MAR 96) 31 Jan 96 Dollar/DM keeps entrenched within the recent con­solidation range. Immediate upside pressure is intact. Further consolidation within the range is not out of the question. Near term support for dips is centered on the 1.4850 pivot. A test of the 1.4935/40 peak may be triggered by a break above 1.4915.
01 Feb. 96 Pressure is preserved on the upside. If good support

in the 1.4785/ 65 zone is held, immediate upside potential will be intact. A break above 1.4915 will provoke a test of the 1.4935/40 peak and sustain acceleration to 1.4990, the 1.5045.
05 Feb. 96 A test of the 1.4735/15 support band is possible. It is a result of sharp reversal from the 1.4915 area. To ease corrective pressure, a break back above the 1.4835/50 band is needed. The market will be left vulnerable to a deeper correction if the 1.4835/15 band is not held.
06 Feb. 96 A deeper sell off may be prevented if the USD/DEM correction holds over 1.4580/1.4605 area. Immedi­ate downward pressure will be alleviated by a break back above 1.4740/50. A rally through 1.4785 will confirm a resumption of the uptrend towards 1.4850,1.4915.
07 Feb. 96 USD/DEM sustains the end of the corrective phase and the resumption of the uptrend towards 1.4850, 1.4915. 1.4605 has been held. There is a potential for failure at 1.4785.
08 Feb. 96 USD/DEM broke above the 1.4755/85 band and continues its stady advance. Near term support is now at 1.4745/35. The end of the corrective phase is confirmed with 1.4910/15 initial target.

12 Feb. 96 There is a risk of another downside leg towards piv­otal support in the 1.4605/1.4580 band. A break be­low 1.4710 may trigger such a drop. There will be light resistance for rallies at 1.4785. A recovery beyond 1.4825 will indicate a resumption of the uptrend to 1.4955. Now USD/DEM is still en­trenched in its consolidation range.
19 Feb. 96 The market is vulnerable to a much deeper retracement towards 1.4280/65. Interim support is centred on the 1.4385/75 band.
22 Feb. 96 USD/DEM remains under short term downward pressure as long as the 1.4610/35 band caps. Some consolidation within a 1.4605-1.4405 range is pos­sible ahead of a retest of the downside.
26 Feb. 96 USD/DEM is pinned within its consolidation range as long as the 1.4605/35 zone caps. Overall pressure is on the downside.
27 Feb. 96 USD/DEM has held well on the downside in the 1.4430/05 area over the last few days and continues to oscillate within its narrowing range with param­eters to day of 1.4575 — 1.4430. With a break above 1.4575/85 there is now room for a test of upper re­sistance levels.
01 Mar. 96 USD/DEM has achieved the initial target area of 1.4745/75 and maintained upward pressure. A break of this zone will lead to some consolidation with 1.4825 the next objective. The pivotal 1.4650/95 band will give good support to dips.

Sterling- Dollar Jan 1996) Medium Term Outlook

Sterling long term uptrend is now complete, confirming the start of a consolidation phase. The market will be under overall pressure as long as the 1.5685/1.5715 area continues to cap. The medium term objective is 1.46/1.45. A downtrend may be triggered by a break back below 1.52.
Hold short, add on any rallies to 1.5610, 1.5685, stop/reverse over 1.5715. Cover shorts on dips to 1.52/ 5180, reinstating on a break, looking for 1.46/1.45 to cover. A break above 1.5685/1.5705 may provoke a resumption of neutral consolidation below 1.5855/80. Reinstate shorts in this zone, stop/reverse above for 1.6240/50.

Западные рынки на прошлой неделе перенесли са­мый большой шок — 8 марта были побиты все рекорды послевоенного времени — доллар рухнул до уровня 1,3450 по отношению к немецкой марке и до 88,65 по отношению к японской иене. На фоне истерических продаж доллара
единственными покупателями выступали центральные банки. Дилеры использовали эти возможности для дальнейших продаж.
Последовавшие за этим заявки на покупку долларов за иены сдвинули немецкую марку, которая перешла в коридор 1,3700-50.
Затем представитель Бундесбанка, заявил, что "им
Есть куда опускать ставку немецкой марки". Это подтолкнуло доллар к 1,3850 и дальше к 1,4000. Это движение по­тянуло за собой и курс японской иены, которая отошла от опасного уровня 90,50.
В ближайшее время можно предложить два сценария развития событий. Первый предполагает, что, если долла­ру удастся удержаться выше отметки 1,3850, то давление марки будет исчерпано, и доллар может начать расти. Второй сценарий предусматривает резкий откат к уровням 1,4220-50 или даже к 1,4340, которые приведут к росту спе­кулятивных настроений. Курс может вновь рухнуть к 1,3660. А если рынку помогут какие-нибудь слухи, то и "дальше — к 1,3500 и 1,3250.
Другими словами, взлет доллара неминуем.
Естественно, что и наличные марка с иеной на про­шлой неделе сильно подорожали в западных банках. Кур­сы покупки/продажи за неделю изменились по марке с 1,415/1,525 до 1,350/1,460, по иене с 93,60 до 87,45/93,45.

Dollar—yen Jan. 1996)
Medium Term Outlook.
The end of the four- month old consolidation phase indicates the start of the uptrend towards the 120 long term ob­jective. Overall pressure to the top side may trigger a break above the 1995 peak of 104.70 followed by an acceleration to 106.60/65 then to the medium term target area of 111/113.60 Dips will find now support at 103, 101,50.
Hold longs, add on dips to 103/ 101.50, stop/reverse below 100.50. Add to longs on a break above 104.70, looking for 105.50, then to 106.60/65 area. Cover all longs on rallies to this target.

USD/JPY technical commentary (06—11 Mar. 1996)

06 Mar. 96 USD/JPY is entrenched in a consolidation range above good support at 104.85. Abreak above 105.30 may trigger an upward move towards 105.85/106. A deeper retracement to 104.65/40 is a possibility with the loss of 104.85.
07 Mar. 96 Break above 105.30 has prompted upward move. A test of the 105.85/106 band is likely, triggering a rally to the significant pivotal area of 106.45/60. An eventual break will confirm a rally to 106.95, then to 107.55.
08 Mar. 96 USD/JPY remained pinned down within a tight consolidation range and failed to sustain upside move as far as the 105.85/106 area. Pivotal support is intact at 104.85. A break above 105.85 may con­firm a resumption of the uptrend towards 106.45/60.
11 Mar. 96 USD/JPY has balked on initial test of the 106.40/80 band. A sharp pullback into the previous range was triggered by dense resistance. Pivotal short term support in the 105.05/104.85 band needs to hold to prevent a sell-off towards 103.65 pressure is build­ing for a resumption of the up-trend towards 111/113 target.
