The long weekend is fast approaching, and traders are slowly winding down. So, I won’t waste your time with a lengthy report. But I just came across this chart of the USD/TRY, which you may want to keep in your watchlist. The Turkish lira hit a new 2019 low earlier today, causing the USD/TRY to break above its recent highs, before easing back slightly at the time of writing. This pair could potentially head further higher in early next week, potentially triggering similar moves in other emerging market currencies. Thanks to the USD/TRY’s recent gains, the three moving averages on the chart are all now pointing higher, objectively telling us that the bullish trend may have resumed. At this stage, only a break back below this month’s low at 5.4350 is needed to signal the bears are back in control.
Risk Warning Notice Foreign Exchange and CFD trading are high risk and not suitable for everyone. You should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience and risk appetite before making a decision to trade with us. Most importantly, do not invest money you cannot afford to lose. There is considerable exposure to risk in any off-exchange transaction, including, but not limited to, leverage, creditworthiness, limited regulatory protection and market volatility that may substantially affect the price, or liquidity of the markets that you are trading. Margin and leverage To open a leveraged CFD or forex trade you will need to deposit money with us as margin. Margin is typically a relatively small proportion of the overall contract value. For example a contract trading on leverage of 100:1 will require margin of just 1% of the contract value. This means that a small price movement in the underlying will result in large movement in the value of your trade – this can work in your favour, or result in substantial losses. Your may lose your initial deposit and be required to deposit additional margin in order to maintain your position. If you fail to meet any margin requirement your position will be liquidated and you will be responsible for any resulting losses.
