In the example above EURUSD is forecast as Bearish below 1.3130 from London's 7am open. 1.3130 is the overnight high. There are 3 charts, each highlighting the technical reasons behind the conclusions that result in the Bearish call.

Calls

Trading with 3cANALYSIS Daily recommendations

Our daily calls are the most practical to trade. They are published Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday with a high level of live updates to aid management.
Our analysts have an average of 36 years expertise in analysing financial markets using a combination of technical analysis, behavioural science and trading experience. Therefore our clients consistently receive the very best assessment of market prospects. Our calls can help improve the timing of the positions you need to hedge or give the opportunity to enter a trade based on our recommendation. All FX, Bond market and Stock indices calls are made with London's 7am open in mind and the success of our analysis is judged from that point until 1pm London time. If the call has been successful then the forecast is closed at that time. If unsuccessful, but without the risk point being broken, or has lacked movement, then the call is open until 4pm (unless cancelled by an update).

Live Updates

Obviously price action throughout the trading day/session may alter analysis and so we send relevant updates as, and when, our assessment changes. New targets, reduction of exposure, changes to the risk level and the closing of any positions are sent via e-mail and immediately updated on the website.

Monday sees the publication of our calls for the coming week and the same principles are applied to these recommendations with the call beginning from London's 7am on Monday through until Friday. Updates are made in the same way as daily calls.
