7/12 Forex

The EUR/USD moved below the Person's Proprietary Signal (pps) moving averages, suggesting a weakening of the bull phase in force since July 1. GBP/USD moved into bear phase.

The pound's switch into bear phase against the dollar accompanied a sharp decline through the pps moving averages, and trading today has been entirely below the ma levels, although almost all of an early decline has been retraced this morning.

The preceding bull phase was short-lived -- it began on July 1 -- and carried the price up only 1.5% during its lifetime.

Person's Monthly Pivots
  • $1.5266, +1.3% (upper)
  • $1.5073 <== You are here.
  • $1.4805, -1.8% (midline)
  • $1.4021, -7.0% (lower)
The analysis uses the daily Person's Proprietary Signal, developed by John Person, and the monthly Person's Pivot, which he also developed. These are black box signals -- the "proprietary" means that Mr. Person knows how they work under the hood, and I don't. But they have shown a fair degree of success in identifying good entry and exit points, and I find them useful. On the glance, "pps open" means the price at the start of trading in the United States on the day the signal appeared.
