EUR/USD:The latest break to fresh multi-day highs

Contributed By: DailyFx


EUR/USD:The latest break to fresh multi-day highs beyond 1.4160 has lacked any real follow through, with the market stalling out ahead of 1.4300 and reversing course quite sharply. From here, it is difficult to establish any clear directional bias, but while the price holds above 1.3695, the overall pressure remains on the upside and dips can be expected to be well supported. Back below 1.3695 will however relieve topside pressure and force a shift in the structure.

GBP/JPY:A closer look at Ichimoku studies suggests still very much in downtrend

Contributed By: DailyFx

 GBP/JPY:A closer look at Ichimoku studies suggests that we are still very much in downtrend, with the market most recently breaking to fresh 2010 lows by 126.45. However, as mentioned in previous commentary, daily studies were looking quite stretched, and despite the break to fresh yearly lows, the latest sharp bounce suggests that overall, the market is very well supported in the 126.00’s on a medium-term basis. From here, we would not at all be surprised to see additional upside towards 135.00, but we prefer to remain sidelined given what is still an overwhelmingly bearish trend. The market has also just recently stalled out by the bottom of the cloud to strengthen bearish prospects.

GBP/USD:The market has been holding above 1.6000 barriers over the past few days, and has most recently pushed beyond 1.6100. This could open the door for additional upside over the coming days, with the 1.6500 figure standing out as the next major resistance point. However, there is some short-term support by 1.6075, and a close back below this level will take the pressure off of the topside.

NZD/USD:We are finally starting to see some form of a top, with the multi-month gains stalling out just shy of critical psychological barriers by 0.8000 and reversing course. From here, there is plenty of room for additional weakness and we see scope for additional declines back towards previous resistance now turned support by 0.7650 over the coming sessions. Intraday rallies should be well capped ahead of 0.7900.

USD/CAD: Price action on Monday looks encouraging

Contributed By: DailyFx

USD/CAD:While we retain a medium-term and longer-term bullish outlook, rallies remain well capped for now, with the market once again dropping back to parity. However, despite the weakness, we recommend buying on dips into the major psychological barrier with the market expected to be very well supported by the figure. Ultimately, only a close back below 0.9970 would give reason for concern, while a break and close back above 1.0160 will relieve downside pressures. Price action on Monday looks encouraging and could act as a trigger for renewed upside.

UFXBank Forex Outlook: Dollar Continues to Advance

USD Dollar (USD) – The Dollar continues to advance versus the other major currencies in Forex trading, after Friday’s better than expected U.S. jobs data eased pressure on the Dollar in the wake of the Federal Reserve’s asset purchase plan announcement. The NASDAQ fluctuated around zero and the Dow Jones decreased by 0.33%. Crude oil strengthened by 0.2%, closing at $ 87.06 a barrel, the highest price in two years. Gold (XAU) rose by 0.4%, closing at $1403.20 an ounce, a new historic record. No major news is expected today.

Euro (EUR) – The Euro fell for a second day versus the Dollar amid concern that some governments in the region will struggle to pay their debt, curbing demand for European assets. The EUR/USD has broken the 1.4000 level and has been trading below it since yesterday. As long as the price is below this level, a short position is preferred. Overall, EUR/USD traded with a low of 1.3887 and with a high of 1.4085. Today, German Final CPI is expected to remain at 0.1%.

EUR/USD – Last: 1.3861







British Pound (GBP) – The Pound was down against the Dollar, falling to a 2 day low as the Dollar recovered ground on the back of Friday’s data .The main momentum of the GBP/USD is absolutely bullish, although it has fallen in the last two days.

The USD/JPY continues to trade around the 80.00-81.00 area. The main support line on the daily chart is still located at 80.00, and the momentum is still bearish as long it‘s trading below the 82.00 level. Overall, USD/JPY traded with a low of 81.00 and with a high of 81.43. No economic data expected today.

The Canadian housing starts fell more than expected (168K vs. 181K), which supported a weaker Canadian dollar. The support level of the USD/CAD on the four hour chart is located at 0.9980, and if the USD/CAD breaks below this level, a short position is preferred and the momentum continues to be positive for the Canadian Dollar. Overall, USD/CAD traded with a low of 0.9994 and with a high of 1.0055. Today, BOC Gov Carney Speaks.

USD/CAD - Last: 1.0042

USD/CHF: any setbacks should be very well supported

Contributed By: DailyFx

USD/CHF: We contend that the market is in the process of carving a material base by 0.9460, and any setbacks should be very well supported ahead of 0.9500 in favor of a sustained recovery. The market should in fact hold above the 0.9580 area on a close basis which represents a 78.6% fib retracement off of the latest move. Ultimately only back below 0.9460 would negate and give reason for pause. Look for a break and close back above 0.9740 to confirm and accelerate.

USD/JPY:While we like the idea of the market establishing a major base by current levels over the medium and longer-term, short-term price action has still not confirmed any signs of a bottom, with the price action over the past few days more characteristic of a bearish consolidation ahead of the next drop towards the record lows. Ultimately, a close back above 82.00 will now be required to relieve downside pressures. However, we will be on the lookout for an opportunity to buy on dips below the 79.75 record lows.

Crude Ripe for a Reversal

Contributed By: DailyFx


Crude’s 5th wave has finally burst on to the scene and price has reached 8650 (former support and resistance this year), which should provoke a reaction. I do expect this rally to reverse and for the larger decline to resume in a C wave lower. Additional strength would find resistance at 8880 (78.6% retracement).

Gold Testing 1400

Contributed By: DailyFx


A long hanging man candle on Friday combined with RSI divergence on the daily warns of a reversal but price needs to break Friday’s low in order to confirm. 1400 may prove to be a psychological barrier as well.
