USD/JPY: within range

Current trend

After a growth amid publication of strong labour market data from the US, the pair is trading within a narrow range.
The pair remains under pressure from strong NFPR data and Bank of Japan commentaries that represented regulator’s tendency to continue with easy monetary policy. The most likely scenario is the pair’s movement within sideways channel until Friday when Retail Sales data for October is due in the US.
Attention of the markets is now focused on employment and inflation data from the US in November and beginning of December. If data comes out rather negative, the pair can fall.

Support and resistance

The price broke out the resistance level at 122.50 (38.2% Fibonacci correction) and continues moving along an ascending channel on the 4-hour and daily charts towards 123.70 (23.6% correction), 124.50 (upper border of the channel).
At the same time, a breakdown of the level of 122.50 would send the pair towards 121.50 (50% correction), 120.60 (61.8% correction, ЕМА144 on the daily chart).
OsMA and Stochastic on the daily and weekly charts recommend long positions and start turning to purchases on the 4-hour chart.
Support levels: 123.00, 122.50, 122.00, 121.50.
Resistance levels: 123.70, 124.00, 124.50.

Trading tips

Pending buy orders can be placed at the level of 123.40 with targets at 123.70, 124.00, 124.50 and stop-loss at 123.10.
Pending sell orders can be placed at the level of 122.90 with targets at 122.50, 122.10, 121.50 and stop-loss at 123.20.

USD/JPY: BoJ Governor satisfied with GDP statistics

Current trend

Yesterday, the Bank of Japan decided to keep its current monetary policy unchanged. BoJ Governor considers that a decline in the third-quarter GDP was insignificant. However, as many economists suggest, the Regulator may be back to discussion on easing policy at its next meeting, due on 28-29 January.
At the same time, market participant are getting ready for a hike in the US interest rates. On Thursday, US stock indices declined, while Fed funds futures show a 72% chance of a rate increase in December against a 58% likelihood two weeks ago.

Support and resistance

On the daily chart, the USD/JPY pair is trading in an upward channel with the upper border at the level of 129.00.
OsMA and Stochastic indicators on the 4-hour and daily charts recommend short positions, but on the weekly chart, they are giving buy signals.
The breakdown of 122.50 allows the pair to decline to the support levels of 122.00, 121.50 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart and 50.0% Fibonacci). Otherwise, after the breakout of the resistance level of 123.70, the pair would strengthen to 125.00, 125.65 (year highs).
Support levels: 122.50, 122.00, 121.50.
Resistance levels: 123.50, 123.70, 124.00, 124.50.

Trading tips

As long as the price is trading below the resistance levels of 0.6750 (EMA144), 0.6860 (23.6% Fibonacci), 0.6890 (EMA200 on the daily chart), a downward dynamics remains valid.

Resistance levels: 0.6575, 0.6615, 0.6700, 0.6750.

Brent: general review

Current trend

Yesterday the price of Brent crude oil significantly corrected due to a Dollar decline and prior to the OPEC meeting, which is due today.
According to the majority of experts, OPEC is not going to reduce quotes despite some speculation that Saudi Arabia can reduce its output. Contrary to that, there is a possibility that quotes will be increased due to Indonesia joining the cartel and Iran’s plans to increase output after sanctions are lifted. Therefore, total output could increase to 31 million barrels instead of today’s 30 million barrels a day. In this case, the price of oil might decline below year lows near the level of 42.46.

Support and resistance

The nearest support level is at 42.46 (yesterday low).
The nearest resistance level is at 44.66 (yesterday high).

Trading tips

Short positions can be opened from current prices with the target at 42.46 and stop-loss at 44.66.
If OPEC decides to reduce quotes at the meeting today, open long positons with the target at 46.44 and stop-loss at 44.00.

AUD/USD: Australia Dollar managed to strengthen

Current trend

On Thursday, the AUD/USD pair hit its new highs of the week. However, it should be noted that the pair strengthened in the second half of the day, while during the Asian session, the Australian currency was under pressure from weak macroeconomic statistics for October.
Australia's exports fell by 3% after a 3% growth in September. Imports were down to 0% from previous 2%. As a result, trade balance deficit surged from 2403 to 3305 billion.
Later on, the pair managed to strengthen amid the Fed Chair Janet Yellen speech. She confirmed the possibility of an interest rate hike at the upcoming meeting, but the Regulator will have to consider the real economic indicators.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands indicator on the daily chart is growing moderately, while the price range is narrowing down at the bottom. MACD is keeping its upward dynamics, though growth of the histogram is slowing down. Stochastic is in the overbought zone and trying to turn down.
According to the indicators, a downward correction might form in the short term.

EUR/USD: NFPR had little effect

Current trend

Despite strong Friday’s data on the Nonfarm Payrolls in the US, the Dollar could not recover losses of Thursday.
Nonetheless, November NFPR suggest a steady recovery of the US labour market. The figure came out stronger than was predicted by economists at 211 thousands new jobs, while October figure was revised up from 271 to 298 thousands new jobs. In addition, Average Hourly Earnings in November increased by 0.2%.
Considering strong recent data from the US, the probability of an interest rate hike in December significantly increases that could lead to the USD strengthening.

Support and resistance

For the downward trend to resume the price should consolidate below the support levels at 1.0820 (ЕМА200 on the 4-hour chart, May and July lows), 1.0760 (ЕМА144 on the 4-hour chart).
At the same time, a consolidation above the level of 1.0890 (ЕМА50 on the daily chart) could allow an upward correction towards the level of 1.1050 (ЕМА144, upper border of a descending channel on the daily chart) to continue.
On the daily and weekly charts, OsMA and Stochastic suggest a growth continuation, while on the 4-hour chart the indicators are turning to sales.
Support levels: 1.0820, 1.0760, 1.0700, 1.0600, 1.0560, 1.0500.
Resistance levels: 1.0940, 1.1050, 1.1180, 1.1285.

Trading tips

Pending sell orders can be placed from the level of 1.0845 with targets at 1.0820, 1.0760, 1.0710 and stop-loss at 1.0890.
Pending buy orders can be placed from the level of 1.0910 with targets at 1.0940, 1.1050, 1.1090 and stop-loss at 1.0880.

USD/JPY: review and forecast

Current trend

Though expectations of a hike at the upcoming Fed meeting are growing, the JPY has strengthened.
Futures traders are putting an 87.2% chance of a hike in US interest rates. At the same time, many investors suggest that a continuous growth in the USD has ended since a rate increase is obvious and already priced into the markets. In this situation, many market participants prefer taking profits on USD long positions.
The Japanese currency and the country's economy also gain support from low commodity prices.

Support and resistance

On the 4-hour chart, the price has formed a Pin-bar that suggests a possible correction after downward movement.
Support levels: 121.00, 120.50, 120.00.
Resistance levels: 122.00, 122.30, 123.00.
