FX consolidates but stocks grind higher: By Mary McNamara

If you had to choose one word to sum up the price action of the FX majors it would have to be Consolidation. However, the S&P500 took a measured march higher that offered up a great low-risk TC signal that delivered up to 5R and the NDX gave a 10 R trade!

TC website update: still ironing out a few issues and this should roll out over next couple of days.

Data: watch today with GBP and EUR CPI, Crude Inventories and the couple of Fed speeches.

USDX daily: watch for any new trend line breakout:

Stocks: whilst there was little happening across the FX pairs I watch there was a slow grind higher on the stock majors.

S&P500 5 min: There was a decent TC signal on the 5 min chart after a break above the Asian trading zone with a low-risk set up that delivered 5 R!

NASDAQ-100 5 min:  There was a decent TC signal on the 5 min chart here too after a break above the Asian trading zone with a low-risk set up that delivered 10 R!

Forex: watch charts for any momentum-based trend line breakout.
