6/12 Analysis: Knowing which pairs have more profit potential
So at the London open we have 3 strong currencies well above the zero line and 3 weak currencies well below the zero line.
However, we only have 2 that meet our criteria for entry. The CHF (turquoise line) is strong and getting stronger with a steep line up indicating momentum. The NZD is weak and getting weaker with a steep line down.
The best trade option when only considering the indicator is the NZD/CHF but I know that that pair does not move in a very wide range so I’ll look for a better option.
The GBP (red line) is strong but hasn’t turned up yet with momentum. I would want to keep an eye on this currency because the GBP/NZD is a potentially more profitable opportunity.
If we wait just a couple minutes into the session, this is what the indicator looked like:
Now you can see the GBP is the strongest currency with a steep line up indicating momentum and the NZD remains weak with a steep line down.
- GBP/NZD BUY
That move was over 100 pips. Now, compare that to the NZD/CHF sell:
So although this would have also been a profitable trade by knowing the pairs that give the better potential profit, you could have been involved in a move that was 3 times larger.
