It was a jolly Christmas indeed for the holders of Fil-Estate Land or GERI in the Philippine Stock Exchange as its shares zoomed from PHP 1.03 to close 26.09% higher at PHP 1.16 last December 23.

(AGI), the holding firm which also owns Megaworld Corporation, is buying 5 billion additional shares at PHP 5 billion in cash sent the LND soaring through the roof. This transaction would increase AGI’s stake in Fil-Estate to 60%.

Shareholders of the DMCI Holdings, Inc. or DMC in the Philippine Stock Exchange must have been partying all season long because of the unbelievable performance of the stock. Imagine, DMC only started trading at below PHP 10.00 in January 2010. And before you know it, DMC shares already reached a high of PHP 41.00 last November. Incredible! Anyway, after reaching the said high, DMC appears to have lost its upward momentum and has been trading flat ever since. Are shareholders just cashing their profits? Are we seeing a start of a downtrend? Or is DMC just gathering enough legs to propel itself to the sky once again? [Read more…] about DMCI: Calm Before Another Bullish Storm?
The last two months has been very good for the oil stocks of the Philippine Stock Exchange, particularly Phoenix Petroleum and Petron Corporation. Petron has exploded from a low of about 6.80 in November 2010 to a high of 17.40 in today’s trading, forming a pennant pattern on its way. Anyway, that’s a gain of more than 250% in less than two months! Wow. Similarly, Phoenix has risen from 7.00 to a high of 13.80 during the same time frame. After reaching the said high, PNX, however, has consolidated into pennant or a symmetrical triangle pattern. The question now is, will PNX break out the same way that PCOR did?

So after being routed by Japanese yen for the last three years, it seems like the US dollar‘s recent rally will extend at least in the near term. Earlier today, the Bank of Japan, which is headed by Governor Masaaki Shirakawa, decided to keep its interest rate unchanged for the foreseeable future to encourage spending. Japan’s core consumer price index, which measures the change in the price of goods and services consumed minus the price of fresh food, remains stuck at -0.6%. A decrease in prices suggests that overall consumption in the country is very [Read more…] about US Dollar Seen to Rally Against the Japanese Yen

Happy Holiday’s FX friends! Hope your trades are giving you dividends especially these days. Anyway, those who are long on the New Zealand dollar or the Kiwi as what investors call it in the street, should start thinking about lightening your positions. Why? Well, if you look at its daily chart, you will see that it has recently broken down from a head and shoulders pattern. In the process, it has also breached its uptrend line. As some of you might know, a break down from such pattern signals a bearish reversal. So if the NZDUSD pair fails to go over the formation’s neckline at 0.7400, it could fall all the way down to just above 0.6800 (computed by projecting the height of the pattern from the point of break down). On the flip side, a successful move above 0.7400 could send the pair at least back in sideways motion. [Read more…] about The New Zealand Dollar (Kiwi) Breaks Down!

Hello guys! Welcome to another day of forex trading. My forex pick for the day is an update on the Australian dollar against the US dollar currency pair (AUDUSD) or as some may call it “Aussie”. During my last post on this (kindly check here), I mentioned it could head north once again after a possible rebound from its 7-month trend line seen in the daily chart. Gladly, as the AUDUSD touched the trend, [Read more…] about Bullishness Seen In The Aussie!
The market has been kind of iffy during the past couple of months and the USDCHF pair has been behaving in the same way. Looking at its daily chart, you can see that the pair has winded into a rising wedge pattern after marking an all-time low at 0.9462 back in October 4. Now as you of you might know, a rising wedge pattern is deemed bullish by technicians since it only depicts a temporary rally in prices. If this is the case, then the Swiss Franc could [Read more…] about Swiss Franc to Revisit Its Historical High Vs. the USD?

Hi guys, my forex pick is the NZDUSD pair (New Zealand dollar vs US dollar) or “kiwi” as some may call it. This currency had been going up since May of this year but after making a 2-year high of 0.7976 last November, it started dropping. Right now, I’m bearish on this currency pair as it could break down from a head and shoulders formation in the daily chart with the neckline at [Read more…] about The New Zealand Dollar To Drop Against the US Dollar?
The shares of Philex Mining, which is the largest gold producing company in the Philippines, or PX in the Philippine Stock Exchange have broken out from a either a rare inverted head and shoulders continuation pattern or a descending triangle. Either way, the recent breakout suggests a subsequent upside move for the stock. Looking at its daily chart, you can see that the volume of shares that was traded during the time of breakout has increased. The MACD likewise signal a bullish move with a bullish crossover (histogram just crossed above the zero line). Moreover, its RSI is already above 50 but below 80, suggesting that its upside move is gaining momentum. Yesterday’s (December 7) trading has also pushed it above all the three moving averages. Anyway, if buying continues to [Read more…] about Philex Mining (PX) Breaks Out!
