EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: May 30, 2017

 

It was a market holiday on several parts of the world yesterday, and the absence of market volatility due to the said holidays was felt throughout the market during the previous session as most of the major currency pairs consolidated and traded within a very limited range yesterday. EUR/USD traders had only one thing to look forward to during the duration of yesterday’s session, which is Draghi’s speech wherein he made his usual statements on the lessening of downward pressure on the EU economy, although this had little effect on the EUR/USD pair’s current standing.

 

What affected the value of the currency pair was the news that Greece is now prepared to abdicate the following bailout fund if the EU will still be unable to reach middle ground as far as the conditions were concerned. This then caused the EUR/USD pair to correct towards 1.1120 points during the latter part of yesterday’s session. As of the moment, the market is still experiencing very low liquidity levels as the Chinese market remains to be on a holiday, and as such, traders are advised to take all market movements today with a grain of salt. In addition, the market will also be experiencing month-end flows before this week comes to a close, and this is why traders should take it easy in order to prepare themselves for the onslaught of economic data later this week. The Fed rate hike in June is still not fully priced in, and unless the market gets some sort of conclusion with regards to the Fed’s next move, then it will be very hard to determine the short-term price actions of the EUR/USD pair. But the recent correction of the EUR/USD pair should be taken only as a mere correction instead of a full-on trend change as corrections are deemed as normal in every currency pair.

 

For today’s session, the market is expecting the release of Germany’s Preliminary CPI data, as well as the PCE data from the US economy. The PCE data will be closely watched as this will indicate whether the Fed will be indeed pushing through with its rate hike or otherwise and could possibly induce a lot of volatility into the market within the day.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: May 30, 2017

 

In a sea of otherwise very inactive major currency pairs, the GBP/USD pair seems to be the only pair which has gained significant volatility during yesterday’s trading session. The cable pair shot up by over 40 pips in spite of a market holiday across several locations throughout the world such as the US, UK, and China. The lack of market activity yesterday gave the pair’s traders an opportunity to induce a bounce in the pair although it was unable to offset the 150-pip crash of the cable pair during the session last Friday. In spite of this recent reversal, the GBP/USD pair is expected to remain trading in a very weak manner as a lot of economic factors seem to be going against the sterling pound at least for the time being.

 

Members of the ruling political party in Scotland have recently outlined the possibility of a Scottish referendum if ever they get reinstated in the Scottish government. But then again there have been recent rumors swirling around with regards to the ongoing Brexit negotiations, specifically on how the negotiations will pan out once the snap elections in June come to a close. In addition, the results of the recent opinion polls are showing that Theresa May lacked the expected lead in the upcoming snap elections, which puts May in danger since anything less than a landslide victory for the UK PM will make this particular risk of hers in order to establish herself in the international scene a failure. The GBP/USD pair is also currently struggling to surpass 1.3030 points, and all of these factors have turned against the cable pair and has put a significant amount of downward pressure on the pair.

 

For today’s session, there are no expected releases from the UK economy although the US will be releasing its PCE data, which will be closely monitored by the market as this will be indicating whether the June rate hike will indeed push through or otherwise. If this data disappoints the  market, then this will not bade well for the GBP/USD pair.

USD/CAD Fundamental Analysis: May 30, 2017

 

The USD/CAD pair remained in consolidation mode as the market lacked significant volatility due to market holidays in China, US, and the UK. The loonie remains trading under the very important trading range of 1.3500 points, mostly due to a steadying in oil prices in addition to a strong greenback value.

 

The currency pair broke through 1.3500 points last week after a surge in oil prices. Although the oil bulls were very disappointed with regards to the results of the recently-concluded OPEC meeting, the loonie received some well-needed pressure from this drop in oil prices, thereby triggering the USD/CAD pair to revert to 1.3500 points and closed down last week at  just under this critical trading level. The CAD is also currently being propped up by a series of very positive data from the Canadian economy, with this economic improvement getting some acknowledgement from the Bank of Canada in its rate statement during the past week. In fact, the BoC has already decided to put its rates on hold instead of implementing a rate cut due to this consistent improvement in the country’s economic state, which could then lead to a possible rate hike if the country’s economy continues to be positive.

 

For today’s session, the US economy will be releasing its PCE data which is expected to clarify the country’s inflation status in addition to shedding some light on whether the Fed will be indeed implementing a rate hike next month. If the PCE comes out as negative, then the USD/CAD pair could possibly correct further towards 1.3400 points.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: June 1, 2017

 

The EUR/USD pair looks poised to  make another attempt at reaching its current range highs as the currency pair was able to take advantage of a correction in the greenback. This upward pressure in the currency pair is expected to last well into the first few days of June, particularly the 2 most essential trading days for this month.

 

The dollar experienced corrections on the back of a couple of disappointing data from the US economy. The first one was the Chicago PMI data, which failed to meet its expected economic reading and the pending home sales data, which also disappointed the entirety of the market yesterday. This triggered a large-scale dollar selloff against other major currencies and has enabled the EUR/USD pair to advance towards 1.1200 and was even able to reach 1.1250 points throughout the course of the NY session. Since the Fed had previously clarified that the implementation of the June rate hike will be wholly dependent on the results of the incoming economic readings from the US, the market has become very sensitive to readings coming from the US economy, with even minor readings inducing major volatility levels on the market especially if these comes out as very disappointing for investors. Eventually, the PMI data was revised to a much higher reading and this helped to cushion the blow of the fall of the USD, although this has left an impression on the market with regards to the adverse effects of a negative reading to the value of the US dollar. Meanwhile, the USD continues to be in peril in spite of its drop in value being temporarily stalled.

 

For today’s trading session, there are no major news releases coming from the EU economy while the US will be releasing its unemployment claims data and its ADP Non-Farm Employment change data during the NY session, which is a precedent to the release of the NFP report on Friday. This particular bit of news is then expected to induce major volatility levels and a move of the currency pair below 1.1200 points should be a signal for the pair’s bulls to rethink their positions.

EUR/GBP Technical Analysis: June 1, 2017

 

The Euro against the British pound was highly volatile during the Wednesday session. It is being in tested in the upper channel and a pullback was seen reaching the opening for the day. The market is attempting to gain sufficient impetus to break higher than the 0.88 level followed by 0.90 level.

 

In the long-term, this pair seems to be much stronger although there is a lot of noise found in the upper channel causing the choppiness of the market. The market might move slower especially with various major reports from the European Union and Britain. Same goes for Brussels and London which will be the center of attention and this market can be easily affected by these outside forces.

 

It won’t be long before this pair rallies upward and it is advisable to either buy after a breakout or be more careful and wait on the sidelines. Selling might be more difficult for this pair neither placing a short-term orde. However, a move lower than the 0.86 handle is a good thing although it seems that the buyers dominate participants but might now last in the current condition of the market.

USD/CAD Fundamental Analysis: June 1, 2017

 

The USD/CAD pair was able to advance further towards its range highs during the previous session in spite of the greenback suffering blows against other major currency pairs due to a series of disappointing economic data from the US economy. The loonie is now trading at just above 1.3500 points which is considered to be a very essential trading region for the currency pair. However, the market has yet to see whether the USD/CAD pair will indeed manage to go even higher and reclaim its bullish price action or if it will correct and return to its previous trading range.

 

This surge in the value of the USD/CAD pair has been mostly attributed to a string of weak economic data from Canada. As the Canadian GDP was released during yesterday’s session, the annual and quarterly readings for 2016 disappointed the market in spite of a very positive monthly reading. This was far worse than what the market had initially anticipated and has caused the loonie to correct and the USD/CAD pair to increase further in value. Oil prices also dropped while the Canadian inventory data showed a solid draw in addition to an added increase of Libyan production data. This caused both the Canadian dollar and oil prices to drop and was more than enough for the currency pair’s bulls to help prop up the value of the USD/CAD pair past 1.3500 points where it is currently sitting as of the moment.

 

For today’s session, the market is expecting the release of unemployment claims data and the ADP employment report from the US economy, both of which are of utmost importance since this serves as a precursor to the incoming NFP report due tomorrow. The oil inventory data is set to be released today, and this, together with the NFP report will most likely determine the short-term price action of the USD/CAD pair.

USD/CAD Fundamental Analysis: June 6, 2017

 

The USD/CAD pair continues to exhibited a very tight price action as the pair’s bulls and bears continue to fight out for the control of the currency pair and is expected to remain as the pair’s dominant trend in the short-term period. The pair has been trapped in a very limited range ever since the currency pair managed to push forward past 1.3500 points with buyers dominating the 1.3400 trading range.

 

During the past few days, oil prices have remained stable, thereby decreasing the amount of leverage it gave to the Canadian dollar and was one of the reasons why the loonie was unable to take full advantage of the dollar weakness which was due to a series of dismal US employment reports last week. Oil prices has also continued to be very disappointing due to rising tensions in the oil-rich Middle Eastern countries and has subsequently diminished its support for the loonie. In spite of the pair making a headway towards 1.3460 for a short while, it was almost immediately met with several buys, causing the USD/CAD pair to retreat towards 1.3500 points, where it is expected to stay put at least in the coming days. The market is now preparing itself for the trading sessions on Thursday and Friday as the currency pair would most likely undergo a volatile trading session due to Comey’s testimony as well as the release of the Canadian employment report on Friday. This is why traders are advised to remain in the sidelines until such time that a break shows up on the pair’s range before inducing any kind of progress in their trades.

 

For today’s session, there are now major releases from both the US and  the Canadian economy and the USD/CAD pair is expected to continue consolidating throughout the duration of today’s session.

USD/CAD Technical Analysis: June 8, 2017

 

The USDCAD go through sideways amid Wednesday’s trades and attempted to push downwards reaching 1.3425 handle. After that, the market had broken out to the upside on the back of releasing the figures of  Crude Oil Inventories. The number showed that oil demand declined again while the greenbacks broke to upside and collapse over the 1.35 handle.

With this, the commodity-linked pair is preparing to resume the longer-term uptrend with anticipation that buying dips will progress.

 

The Canadian dollar is expected to struggle as demand continued to be sluggish relative to the crude oil market. A break on top of 1.36 handle prompts the market to move forward near 1.40 region eventually. As buying dips in the near-term will persist, selling the market seems uninteresting. The U.S. dollar has to extend its gains versus the loonie because the oil keep on dragging the currency in the longer-term

 

A breakdown or pull back cause buyers to missed the trend during the announcement.

The position on the lower level showed plenty of choppiness, hence, down there might have the same degree of irregularity because support will be provided for pullbacks. Therefore, expect a lot of order flow accompanied by “market memory found in the lower areas.

USD/CAD Fundamental Analysis: June 20, 2017

 

The USD/CAD pair continues to consolidate within its range lows as the loonie makes another attempt to recover its losses and possibly trigger a bounce in its value. Now that the Bank of Canada is more than eager to help the Canadian economy make a 360-degree turn, the pair’s bulls will be in for a hard time as it tries to induce any kind of price bounce. Should the pair manage to create a bounce, then this should be viewed as a selling opportunity and should not be taken as a trend adjustment.

 

On the other hand, oil prices are still trading within its bottom rungs and remains weak as of the moment, however the CAD seems to be unaffected by this and has still managed to look very positive and has remained trading in a very positive manner. The CAD will only be able to gain some measure of short-term strength if the oil prices will be able to recover in the short run, and if this happens, then the USD/CAD pair might be able to make a substantial attempt to go beyond the critical range of 1.3000 points. The currency pair has weakened significantly ever since it surpassed 1.3500, with this region signalling a trend shift. The fact that the currency pair is still doing very well in spite of a drop in oil prices and dollar strength just goes to show how much of a change has happened within the price action of the USD/CAD pair. Meanwhile, the economic releases from the Canadian economy has showed consistently positive readings, with the BoC announcing its plans to help keep the country’s economy on  the upside.

 

For today’s trading session, there are no major releases from the Canadian economy, and the USD/CAD pair is expected to range and consolidate on both directions of 1.3200 points.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: July 04, 2017

 

The British pound against the U.S. dollar has had a difficult trading session yesterday as the dollar is starting to recover in the market as the week starts. Several data are expected to come out from the U.S. as traders are anticipating these data to be supporting the greenback.

In view of this, this commences the week in a great start especially for the U.S. dollar that dollar bulls could take advantage of and could further get better until the holiday but could proceed into consolidation prior to the resurgence of the volatility tomorrow.

The cable has had trouble following the bad data from the U.K. when the Manufacturing PMI did not meet expectations. Although, the Manufacturing PMI data from the U.S. came in stronger. These added pressure to the GBP/USD pair and promote the pair to get lower at 1.30 up to 1.29 level.

Currently, the pair is hovering strongly close to the resistance region in 1.3030 which seems to be similar to yesterday’s forecast. Moreover, the pair climbed uphill at a quicker pace where a correction won’t be surprising to happen.

The market sentiment is becoming stronger that the BOE would hike rates sooner which is also supported by the central bank as it is hawkish over the past month. Governor Carney is saying that the pound has surpassed the obstacle and a hawkish decision would be beneficial for the pound.

More expectantly, the employment data from the U.S. are assumed to come out positively which could raise the option for another rate hike from the Fed soon. It is intriguing on the how next week will turn out as the pound and the dollar would fight off on which will be priced higher than the other.

For today, the Construction PMI data from the U.K is expected to be published while the U.S. in a holiday that offsets the volatility and the liquidity in the market with low trading activities. It is reasonable to expect consolidation in the market.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: July 7, 2017

 

The EUR/USD climb higher on the positive news for the single European currency and brought negative news for the US dollar, hence, this helped the pair to return towards the range of its highs where it previously existed.

 

The euro-dollar pair appeared to be very bullish as of this time while traders and euro bulls will cheer up due to the fact that a major portion of this is from the existing strength of the EUR. This not the same during the earlier times wherein the pair trailed upwards following the dollar’s weakness.

 

As mentioned in the earlier forecast, the bullish run will remain intact within this pair and it appeared that will take some time prior the euro recovery. This happened yesterday due to the release of ECB minutes which clearly indicates that officials talked about preserving the QE tapering. However, decided to hold back until the inflation data support this move. It further shows that the ECB is very serious in considering the tapering as this also wrought a large increase for the EUR. In case that it lacks steam to push the EURUSD higher, we could rely on the ADP employment report which presented lower than expected value of 158K versus projections of 185K.

 

As the ADP served as a precursor to the NFP scheduled to be released later this day, it further acts as a reminder for the dollar bulls that they are not yet far from that critical phase and that other challenges and struggle continues in the near-term. With this, the trend of sluggish US data resumed in the past couple of days. This questioned the Fed’s decision on ignoring the weak data after they implemented rate hike in the previous month. Ultimately, the focus is on the NFP along with the wages report and should be keenly monitored. Any hints of weakness in this report will only need some stimulant in order for the euro bulls to support the pair to 1.05 level.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: July 14, 2017

 

Despite the fact that EUR/USD appeared to be volatile and fluctuates continuously and when we zoom out the trends viewed on the daily scale, we can see that the euro-dollar pair is trading in a quite tight range in the past couple of days.

 

Apparently, the pair is bullish but a move over the 1.1450 region a few days ago, correct back towards that level and it trades on top of 1.14 mark as of this writing.

 

Failure to move beyond the level 1.1450, despite the weakening of the US dollar previously, should still be considered by the bulls. As they are expectant that the EURUSD will remain to trend upwards when it cleared the resistive region at 1.1430. Yet, there’s no any movement happened and the pair trades under the broken resistance as of this moment.

 

As the euro bulls spent more time in managing their move, it provides a greater chance that dollar bullishness may eventuate and then trimmed lower until nothing.

 

Janet Yellen’s testimony in 2 days did not bring out any hints of hawkishness that disappointed the dollar bulls again yesterday since they somewhat expected that she will support the dollar and give any clues regarding economic growth and the schedule of the next rate increase. The Fed Chair spoke her typical lines without providing any signals and this resulted in a weaker dollar.

 

Ultimately, the US CPI and retail sales and other significant data is the second most important set of data next to jobs report. Therefore, it should be monitored closely in order to know if there is some recovery in the employment statistics for these figures could also lead to a recovery. In case that this happens, we will witness a fully recovered US dollar.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: July 17, 2017

 

The Euro against the U.S. dollar puts its high levels at risk following poor data results on Friday that boosted the pair. The dollar has been negatively positioned in the past few weeks to take advantage of any kind of recovery. The NFP results put a high data keeping hopes up that this would result in a reversal because of the U.S. economic data and anticipated to recover the dollar but it did not happen.

 

In the previous week, the dollar has kept a sustained decline but the market is focused on Yellen and late data released on Friday. Yellen’s speech was not as expected and she was not concerned with her less hawkish speech which will further place the dollar in a difficult situation. Hence, the dollar bulls will have to rely on the Friday data to appeal for traders to buy since Yellen could not support the dollar. Furthermore, both the retail sales data and the CPI data has failed expectation which has worsened the situation.

 

The retail sales came in with weakened growth while the CPI data came in at 0.1% compared to the anticipated value of 0.2% that pulled the dollar growth down and pushed the EUR/USD pair up. A steeper correction level is hoped for but the lackluster growth of the U.S. economic data raises concern and the next rate hike would depend on the next reports. Yet, the next rate increase will most likely not happen in the short-term.

 

For today, there is no major news from the Eurozone as well as in the U.S. which in effect, will continue the market sentiment on Friday. Nevertheless, traders should get ready for the week ahead.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: July 19, 2017

 

The British currency against the U.S. dollar had a correction during Tuesday session. The pair dropped towards 1.3030 level bringing the trend in a weaker position on Friday after the inflation data came out with negative data.

 

The pair is now on a crucial condition which will presumably persist in the upcoming trading sessions. The pair could break above the region to move forward in short-term. In the past few weeks, it is notable that the economic data from the UK did not meet expectations. This opposes the trend by the start of the year when the U.K. data has been impressive and exceeded expectations amid of political and economic problems brought by the Brexit negotiation.

 

The BoE has been anxious regarding the monetary policies including rate hikes in the future and the economic data has a vital role in the decision-making process. Hence, negativity in the data would make them be irresolute.

 

The GBP/USD pair was able to brush aside issues on weak data and Brexit concerns in the past few weeks due to the low dollar in the market. Moreover, BoE reinforces this and adds more pressure. However, if the dollar steadies, the attention will go back to the BoE and the economic data unless both works side by side. On the other hand, this would be more complicated for the pound bulls.

 

For today, there are no major new from Britain or from the United States. Choppiness is anticipated to carry on close to the 1.3050 region since the trend is now in consolidation and ranges.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: July 24, 2017

 

Draghi sounded dovish during the latest press conference and he was aware of the rally of the euro since the economic data favor the currency. Although the Draghi is trying to bring the price down as expressed in his speech, the market has reacted oppositely and bought the currency even more and push the price of the EUR/USD pair towards 1.15 level. Soon after, the news regarding the business transaction of Trump investigation, a selloff in the dollar occurred that influenced the price to move towards 1.16 region. The week closed above the said region.

 

In the upcoming week, we are heading towards the end of the month where the economic news and events dry up and hence we do not have much news in the coming week apart from the FOMC statement. But considering how bullish the EURUSD pair has been, we believe that the next target for the pair would be the 1.18 region.

 

As the last day of the week and the end of the month approaches, the pair will mostly persist in a neutral stance for today. There are less economic events except for the FOMC statement recently. The next target of the pair would be at 1.18 region for short term. Once this has been achieved, a correction could follow suit as it has been beyond its highs for the year and the highest since 2015. The number of short positions for the dollar will most likely increase that poses a lot of risks and uncertainty especially for dollar bears who would immediately exit the market once it goes up.

USD/CAD Fundamental Analysis: July 31, 2017

 

The USD/CAD was able to obtain the highly-needed bounce on Thursday, which was previously mentioned since the week started. It is followed by the decline of the pair in the past few weeks because of the strong level in which the pair sits together with the possibility that this region is the buyer’s final stand.

 

As the strength of the dollar recovered, it helped the pair to soar high and affirmed lot of things in the following days. However, there is already a warning that the downward will be very intact and needed much time to return.

 

It is also mentioned that bears will use any bounce from the commodity-linked pair as an opportunity to sell prices highers. Any hints of recovery seen on Friday had plunged conclusively while the USDCAD appeared to be weak as usual.

 

The sluggish stance was triggered by the GDP figures of Canada and the United States. But the US data showed a marginally better than expected, while the Thursday’s data from the US prompted the market to have higher expectations from the gross domestic product. On one side, the Canadian GDP came in very strong and able to have another rate increase soon.

 

This led to a reversal of the whole trend since yesterday and the pair lies in below the 1.24 level which might become weaker.

 

Ultimately, there are no any major economic releases either from US or Canada. Therefore,  consolidation is safely expected together with ranging of the dollar which is at disadvantage because of the developments over the White House during weekends.

 

Furthermore, it is predicted the USDCAD to remain in pressured area as the markets look forward to a plenty of data expected in the latter part of the week.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: August 3, 2017

 

The main focus for today will be on the sterling pound as there are an expected economic releases and other data from the United Kingdom for this day. We await for the UK inflation hearings along with the rate announcement of the Bank of England to be issued. Also, BOE Governor Mark Carney will conduct his speech, therefore these events would likely cause high volatility for the GBP/USD.

 

The central bank of England was hawkish during their last meeting which led few markets to think that rate hike is possible sooner or later. There are three BOE members who agreed for a rate increase which triggered confidence for some markets, however, this only accounts a small portion of the market because the majority still believes that the bank will maintain its benchmark.

 

This is considered a logical approach regarding the continuous financial circles of Britain which could be a turmoil caused by the Brexit procedures. Moreover, a lot of things remain unclear, particularly the results of the referendum process in determining if it will a soft or hard Brexit. Due to many uncertainties, it is absurd for the BOE to make an increase and most likely, they want to see first the effect of the Brexit negotiations prior making such decisions.

 

The pound-dollar resume to consolidate yesterday and the range near the highs of its range are expected for this very important day. In case that the BOE decided to kept rates steady, the Cable is anticipated for further correction. The 1.3250 level serves as the ceiling at this moment.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: August 30, 2017

 

The rates are still maintained despite high volatility during the Tuesday trading session. The volatility is not surprising as the market reacted to the speeches from Draghi and Yellen on Friday. The speeches finished late for the day when the U.K. market closed as well as on Monday which is a holiday in the U.S.

 

Volatility is already anticipated which is what happened yesterday. Furthermore, the monthly end currency flow added to it. It supported the pair to move higher over the 1.20 level as it moved towards 1.2070 prior to the U.S. session. Higher global risk also partly contributed to the movement which directly involves the U.S. as the DPRK persists to threaten with different missile tests. Nevertheless, the situation has been handled pretty well and the same time supported the dollar to strengthen in the later in the day.

 

There was a correction seen that further pushed the pair towards the 1.20 level that closed the day when it started. The movement occurred quite fastly as traders are anxious on how long the trend will last. They are also cautious and trying to see how long before the ECB will intervene in the event of strong euro. These have had a big impact on euro and there will most likely be choppiness for short-term.

 

For today, the preliminary GDP data and the ADP report from the U.S. are anticipated to be released today which could greatly affect the pair and monitor its impact on the increase of rates. This would also determine if it big enough for the Fed to proceed with a quick rate hike by the end of the year. Hence, volatility is already anticipated and the holiday period is about to end as the EUR/USD pair would have a big change in action for short-term.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: September 25, 2017

 

On Friday, the EUR/USD had another range trading and consolidative day and attempted to break the 1.2000 level. However, a sudden strong selling beat the pair back which pushed the single European currency under the 1.20 region. This scenario was already anticipated since the elections in Germany is scheduled over the weekend, considering the fact that there is no one who would like to have large positions until the weekend.

 

The elections took place and the results were announced, showing already anticipated outcome which is the victory of Merkel’s party. However, something unexpected happened as the formation of a coalition started since many have said that Merkel is incapable to lead a government by herself only. Moreover, this could continue for some days or even weeks and the market is not in favor with this. There are only some instances where markets preferred some uncertainties and this situation could probably keep going and could lead for the euro sell-off.

 

During the trading session this morning, we saw some sell-off in EUR, but a retracement developed. As of this writing, the EURUSD appeared to be weak which might continue until the end of the day. The London session is much awaited due to a lot of news regarding the elections that the markets would receive, allowing the market to make its own decision about which way to go. Hence, the indecision and uncertainty brought an impact to the euro.

 

Ultimately, the ECB President Mario Draghi is expected to have his speech along with Germany’s election results which could possibly control the EUR trend for this day. According to projections, the euro-dollar pair will be under pressure throughout the day.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: October 13, 2017

 

The GBP/USD pair keep on trading in an up and down direction which seems directionless, by the weakness of the U.S dollar helps the Cable pair to boost amid this period.

 

The struggle of the British currency continues due to the risks linked with the Brexit process, however, the dollar weakening appeared to be massive which affected others in moving up over the greenback. Until now, the Brexit process is ongoing but it remains to be seen any major development.

 

The delay in the talks continues while other discussion also does not provide any progress so far. This trigger doubts if Brexit talks could possibly break down and further led to question if the United Kingdom will depart from the European Union even without any accomplished deal. This could be the possible thing to happen at this particular moment, which further resulted in lot of uncertainty.

 

Moreover, the position of PM Theresa May seems to be threatened since last week because most of her party are against her leadership technique. Albeit, she was able to surpass such mess, she remains involved in a complicated scenario. These combined events pushed the sterling pound under pressure but the weakening of the dollar made it acceptable.

 

Ultimately, the retail sales and CPI data from the United States are scheduled today while the United Kingdom has no major data for this day. These set of data should be monitored carefully by market participants because inflation is considered a major parameter by the Federal Reserve, particularly, in making the decision about the rate hike in December. In case the figures showed strong data, the GBPUSD is expected to wane.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: October 17, 2017

 

The euro bucks pair failed to gain strength during the trading session on Monday, followed by expectations to drive higher amid sluggish US data issued on Friday. While the retail sales showed robust data as well, however, the CPI resulted to a lower than anticipated figures. This caused the EURUSD to test the 1.1870 range high but the pair continuously moved lower since that period.

 

The EUR/USD weakened until the end of the trading course last Friday and the activity happened yesterday was a mere continuation of that previous trend. On one side, the U.S. dollar was able to acquire further strength since there are no any hints about the next missile launch from North Korea sooner or later, but the markets are still expecting for such motion. Moreover, this supported the greens to stir gradually and firmly across the board in the morning. The momentum ascends during the American hours with a high possibility that John Taylor would replace Janet Yellen for the position as Fed Chair. Taylor is known to be hawkish and very supportive of Fed rate increase. He is also favored by President Trump as the hawkishness helped the USD to perk up versus its counterpart currencies. Also, this has pushed the pair downwards below the 1.1780 mark as of this writing.

 

Ultimately, the Germany ZEW economic sentiment is scheduled to release today and no other major news both from the European Union and the United States.

 

The strength of the greenbacks is predicted to resumed this day as the pair eventually turns towards the range lows at 1.1700 mark.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: October 23, 2017

 

The EUR/USD pair closed the day with a decline during the course on Friday and up to this day, the weakness keeps going. Also, the US dollar strengthens while the eurozone continues to manage the Spain’s condition that placed further pressure on the single European currency in the near-term. The market could possibly trend sideways in the next couple of days while waiting for the decision of the European Central Bank (ECB) on the short-term direction for the EUR. The complicated situation in Catalonia is not yet over since the Spanish administration dismissed the Catalonia government and appealed for new elections with an attempt to abandon the independence proposal. This caused uncertainties and confusion that affected the euro for today.

 

While traders keep on carefully tracking the situation to assess the impact on Spain and other parts of the European region.

 

There is not so much action expected during the first half of the week as the market count on the ECB. The central bank is anticipated to talk about the QE tapering in the meeting and Draghi’s statement and the press conference would likely lead to high volatility towards the euro after some time.

 

Moreover, the ECB did not yet provide any definite timeline for the tapering and the markets are waiting to receive some information from them. The greenbacks persist to remained steady despite the fact that the arriving figures from the United States seem choppy. This resulted in a disorganized state of the dollar. Also, it is projected to fix itself over the following weeks which could possibly prompt a strong trend.

 

Ultimately, there are no major economic releases from the European Union or the United States scheduled for today. Hence, the complicated condition of the Korean region and the risks in Catalonia are predicted to rule over the market trend for today.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: November 2, 2017

 

The EUR/USD pair waited for the FOMC minutes throughout the trading day on Wednesday, the minutes are expected to be issued during the American session. Aside from this pair, there are other many currency pairs that desire to know the thoughts of Fed members regarding the future rate hikes with expectations to help them determine the short-term trend for the U.S dollar.

 

This ensures that the single European currency was fixed in a very tight range at 30 pips, while markets in a long position understand that any choppy movement would lead to an unprofitable trade. Since the focus is centered on the positioning of trades prior the major news events coupled with large trends once the news was issued.

It became more interesting due to the subsequent news later this week which has equal of importance with concerns of the greens. It further opened the door for the possible reversal by the FOMC with the approaching news events.

 

The FOMC failed to achieve its target, however, most of the text remained unchanged, particularly the talks of future outlook that came in lower than market expectations. This resulted in a sudden minor shock for the USD, met some buying and pushed the bucks to a tight range until the end of the course after the minute's publication.

Considering all the projections formulated the entire day, the minutes conversely disappointed the markets which further triggered choppy data by means of the ADP report released earlier the day.

 

There are reports that confirmed Jerome Powell as the next head of the Fed Reserve but caused the dollar to weaken later this day, nevertheless, the effect of this news would likely be temporary.

 

Ultimately, the attention was turned towards the British pound as there are no releases from the United States or the European region for today. Hence, it is safe to say that there is some tight ranging and consolidation within the euro-dollar pair amid the trading day while waiting for the US employment statistics tomorrow which could roughly confirm the rate increase in December.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: November 8, 2017

 

The GBP/USD softened during the trading course on Tuesday and it closed the day with choppiness with regards the British pound. The sterling lost its strength in the morning and successfully regained its entire losses until the closing of the day. As of this writing, the GBP is trading comfortably on top of the 1.3150 level. The rebound muddled the scenario relative to the direction of the British currency.

 

On one hand, the American dollar appears to remain unchanged throughout the course yesterday. US President Donald Trump is currently on a trip to different Asian countries, the twitter seems to be a  good venue since Trump is outside US and sarcastic comments are not present also during this period. Therefore, it bolstered the greenbacks to maintains its position. The dollar received further support from the finishing touches on tax reform plan as the program is going through various stages. The pound was mainly bullish followed by a decline from the last fall that occurred during the BOE rate hike, however, it gave a gloomy economic perspective.

 

Despite the 2 cents decrease of the sterling on that day, it was able to recover within the day and worked out to acquire additional cent from the price on the same day. This indicates bullish signals towards the GBP while the market is worried about eliminating chances for more rate increase and starts to recede slowly.

 

Ultimately, both the United Kingdom and the United States will not release any major economic data throughout the day. Bullishness is expected to prevail amid the day. An increase from the Cable pair has the tendency to weaken and remained steady but the price could lead the price higher in the short term.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: November 17, 2017  

 

The EUR/USD pair had been moving unsteadily in the past few days as the pair moves up and down with high volatility as the greenback moves without a specific direction in the present global tone. The dollar is appealing to be bought in the short term yet the market maybe thinking twice. Although, there are instances where the rally of the dollar where it is being sold at a faster rate.

 

This maintains the pressure in the dollar and which would be advantageous for the euro. What’s keeping the market optimistic for the dollar is a rate hike from the Fed in December although, the market does not strongly believe this. There are no specific indications yet with indecisiveness of Fed members while the data move at a steady pace.

 

This has kept the dollar weak with any news or data to be released. In the past 24 hours, the euro decline to the area of 1.1750 which is seen to move down in general. The latest relevant news would be the continuation of the development of missiles from North Korea and the ongoing investigation on the accusation of Russian intervention in the US Presidential elections. These events would drive the dollar down.

 

For today, the speech of Draghi are expected during the London session but it is unlikely that he would discuss the monetary policy. Hence, traders should get ready for choppiness in trading this pair and be cautious in the liquidity of the pair.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: November 20, 2017

 

The British pound persisted to move at a fixed rate but it is the opposite to the euro currency because of the news from German coalition talks. The pound has taken advantage of the low dollar as it rose to 1.32 level. However, it is still to be observed if this move higher.

 

The latest news from Germany will most likely affect the British pound as well as other countries of the Eurozone with the ongoing Brexit talk. Thinking about it, the current situation facing Merkel in Germany may be similar with U.K. Prime minister Theresa May as she also fights her own battle. However, it should be considered that any changes to cause uncertainty would most likely affect the Brexit as well. This will not be favorable to Germany or U.K. Nevertheless, both countries would want a good transition and come to a conclusion that would be beneficial for both ends.

 

Any uncertainty in Germany would slow down the talks and look forward to an agreement which could complicate more things further and be disadvantageous for the pound in long-term. Aggressive leaders are best suited in the current situation as they are looking for a conclusion. However, some domestic concerns are hampering the process which gets their attention. For short term, the British pound could have some gains because of uncertainty from Germany. However, this could have a negative impact on the U.K. for the long term if this situation is prolonged.

 

For today, the British pound seems to be put under pressure as it depreciates against euro during the London session. There is no major news from the U.S. or from the U.K. in other times of the day. Consequently, the consolidation with a bearish tone is anticipated to take place today.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: November 20, 2017

 

The EUR/USD were pressured by reports about failed coalition talks in Germany. The pair was having a smooth direction since last week as the market may be unaware of the unfavorable incidents, which shocked the markets upon the emergence of the news earlier on Monday. Moreover, this pushed the single European currency lower after its strengthened during the trading course last week.

 

The news that was released in the morning reports about the negotiations of Merkel’s parties in forming a coalition, as the FPD agreed to withdraw from the talks considering the unfeasible formation of the 4-way coalition at this particular moment. Hence, this caused trouble towards the entire government since Merkel would likely put all his effort to close a deal with other parties.

Germany is regarded to be the bedrock of the whole European region due to its well-established economy and government with the leadership of Merkel. Since her position is currently in jeopardy coupled with the ongoing Brexit, the scenario seems to have chaotic results that should be avoided. As the election results were issued, it disappointed Merkel as she failed to gain the victory among the majority which further exacerbates the situation.

 

As expected, this caused the euro to sell off and the EURUSD currently moved down towards the 1.1730 level as of this writing. Further selling is anticipated upon the development of the story and during the London trading session. ECB President Mario Draghi will have several speeches scheduled for this day, however, it appears that Draghi is in doubt to discuss monetary policy and was surprised by the current events in Germany

 

The lows of the range in the 1.16 mark is projected to be under pressure throughout the trading course.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: November 21, 2017

 

The British currency had slightly whipsawed amid the daytime trading and closed the day with an unchanged position which appeared to be hardly affected by the subsequent events happened in Germany. The United Kingdom is currently dealing with ongoing issues on economy and politics, as the pound could possibly be swayed. Moreover, there are more concerns that the country needs to deal with instead of other matters related to the European region.

 

The sterling could possibly get a short-term and limited benefit because of the problems in Germany. It could also soften the German position as well as the EU leaders due to Brexit talks, however, brought temporary relief for the team of PM Theresa May. Nevertheless, whatever kind of benefit they could acquire from this is expected to be short-lived due to its endless process and either side will move towards on their planned position due to domestic concerns from their countries, respectively. Eventually, the market might realize this which could be the reason that after the initial sway, the GBP was able to adjust based on reality and closed the day nearly unchanged.

 

The economic data from the United Kingdom remains choppy which would likely trigger concerns for the  Bank of England. Meanwhile, the struggle of PM May to deal with her political woes continues which shifted her focus from the Brexit. Considering the events in Germany, the process became dull and complicated which is unacceptable for both sides.

Ultimately, there are no major releases from the United States but Britain will have its inflation report hearings which should be monitored in order to have a clearer picture for the economy and inflation that could possibly have a large impact towards the timeline of the next rate increase.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: November 22, 2017

 

The GBP/USD pair remains trading in a tight manner since yesterday, which is similar to the market’s activity. After dealing with high volatility on Monday, the traders were able to prepare themselves for a greater battle beforehand which was actually marked by the ranges that reduced over time. While the market is currently waiting for future events that will take place.

According to projections, this week would be a busy time for pound traders due to some positive actions and sudden stabilization of the sterling amid the issues on domestic politics and other foreign concerns in the wake of uncertainties in Germany.

None of these were able to bring an impact against the GBP so far, as the British currency continuously trading in a robust manner for this week. This is expected to be put to test for today due to some major economic releases scheduled from the United States and the United Kingdom.

 

In Britain, the autumn forecast statement to be issued during the late London session will essentially provide assumptions regarding the current status of the economy and will also give future events of the economy. This data is annually published which could also possibly provide hints about the considerations of the Bank of England regarding inflation and rate increase in the first half of 2018. Hence, any signs of hawkishness within this report is expected to move the sterling to the 1.34 level.

 

In the American session later will be releasing the FOMC minutes that is highly anticipated by the market in order to determine the Fed’s decision towards rate hike next month. There is high chance that the Federal Reserve will allow the raise in December, however, the markets are waiting for some confirmation signal along with the timeline of the rate increase. The pound will experience a very volatile day.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: November 23, 2017

 

The EUR/USD pair anticipated to have fluctuations from the market but turned as the FOMC minutes is anticipated for the incoming long weekend. There is an active trading activity in the market instead of the anticipated fewer ones. The dollar has lost its leverages and was moving slower over the course of the day. The trend only gained a better traction after the release of the

FOMC minutes.  

 

The EUR/USD pair moves higher than the area of 1.1750 in a subtle manner with dimmed the activity that happens prior to the release of the FOMC minutes. There is not much anticipated from the market since the Fed is presumed to maintain its current stance, most especially that the rate hike in December will most likely push through. The euro moved slightly higher at the beginning of the day and proceed to move up during the course of the day.

 

The FOMC minutes gave a dovish tone which is not surprising. The rate in December has almost already priced in the market although the market is more focused on the possibility of a further rate hike. There are some members who think that the rate hike has not reached the target mark which could lead to another rate hike but it is also unlikely unless the inflation has improved along with the incoming data. Consequently, the dovishness of the dollar resulted in an increase of the pair towards the area of 1.18 which is seen to hover steadily above this as of the moment.

 

Today is the start long weekend in the US on account of Thanksgiving and there will be no economic news anticipated to be released from the U.S. as well as from the Eurozone. Traders should anticipate consolidation in the trend with a bullish tone for the rest of the day.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: November 27, 2017

 

The British pound is trying to make use of the situation which has been surging in the past few days as the dollar has weakened. This began after the FOMC minutes released a surprising dovish statement that supported the GBP/USD pair and rallies since then. This is yet to be observed if this rally will last.

 

Most of the traders are ambivalent of this uptrend since this happened due to the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday. After the holiday, a correction was observed given that traders are going back following a long weekend and investors are gaining some profits where it makes the minutes not a dovish sentiment. This could result in buying of the dollars which would further induce correction in trading.

 

Other than that, Brexit is in a difficult situation right now and if anything happens, a massive breakthrough is anticipated in the talks in the few weeks to come. There are some investors who assume that the U.K. would choose to cancel the deal if they will not benefit from it. If this is the case, then Britain would be on a losing end for the economy. Hence, the pound would most likely continue its rally with the ongoing matter on Brexit.

 

There is no major news from the U.K. or the U.S anticipated to come out today. Consequently, it is likely to have some consolidation during the first half of the day. There may be some correction for the day when traders go back to the U.S. from their holidays.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: December 6, 2017

 

The euro major pair declined in the past 24 hours but with unknown reason. The euro has a weak overall trend in the market and there is lesser strength in the dollar. The movement has been movings steadily which was sufficient for the pair to decline lower than yesterday’s trading. It reached the level as low as 1.18 prior to rally as it trades higher than the 1.1820 at the moment.

 

The market seems to be waiting on the sidelines as traders are observing the movement, particularly of the dollar. The rate hike will happen soon that causes last-minute uncertainty whether this will be pushed through this month. Also, concerns regarding the tax reform bill are also being considered if this will passed by the Senate which could take some time and traders have to wait for the next movement.

 

Being the last month of the year, traders should be patient whether this will further develop amid holidays. This adds more pressure to traders to be careful in betting large positions and better to be patient before deciding which way to go. As a result, the dollar is now moving steadily as the euro continues to decline at a slower pace since many currency pairs are attempting to maintain within the borders of the trading range that has been known in the past few months.

 

There is no major news from the eurozone except for the ADP employment report from the U.S. This is prior to the release of the NFP for the week. Pressure will still be present in trading this pair as the market waits for the development of the news.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: December 18, 2017

 

The British pound trades in a strong manner since the day started even despite the lack of fundamental developments. Also, there are not much economic releases on Friday which allow the consolidation and ranging for the price action within that day. At the same time, there are reports about increasing support for the US tax reform bill during the American trading session, it further indicates that the bill is expected to be passed amid the course of the current week. Hence, this enables the US dollar to grow and pushed the GBP/USD pair downwards during Friday’s late session. When the bill is approved, the strength of the greenbacks is expected to resume in the near term, until the year ends. In turn, the Cable pair will continue to be under pressure throughout this period, however, the level of impact remains unclear.

 

On weekend, British Prime Minister Theresa May reiterated her determination to push through the Brexit process and she further stated her willingness to deal with it in the short term concerning the payment that the United Kingdom need to settle along with the possible trade access. These two factors are the most important elements to consider but the UK and the market seem worried about these. The process appears to be a little bit of delay but the encouraging speech delivered by PM May successfully give a slight raise to the sterling earlier this morning.

 

Ultimately, there is no major news from the US or the UK for the rest of the day while some consolidation and ranging are expected much for today. Moreover, volatility might get a slight boost upon the onset of the US session and further updates with regards the tax bill.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: December 20, 2017

 

The GBP/USD currency pair was able to move ahead of the American dollar, as the USD lower in price amid smooth approval process of the tax bill. The passage was projected to support the dollar to increase, however, the effect was completely different. The market’s reaction remains uncertain not until the bill is already passed through in one of the US Houses and waiting for the Senate approval. However, there could be some delay due to procedural problems which could possibly place some pressure on the greenbacks that could further lead to uncertainty. As expected, the tax reform bill will be enacted by the Senate on a very tight margin and further requires the President’s signature to seal in the law. The whole scenario would likely be completed within this week, hence, the volatility in the USD should keep going until it happens.

 

The Brexit process does not have much improvement over this week and it is predicted to continue until New Year. Definitely, there will be some strong development in the process since the leaders on both sides clearly stated about the completion of a deal which may take a matter of time prior accomplishing the agreement. This notion seems to provide support for the pound in the past couple of weeks.

 

Ultimately, BOE Governor Mark Carney will have his speech but the impact to the market is predicted to be minimal. The market trend for today would likely be led by the USD and tax bill legislation. It is believed that the greens should gain more strength in the short and medium term in order to maintain the GBPUSD active.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: December 21, 2017

 

The euro paired against the U.S. dollar still dominates the market as it positions strongly, although the volatile is starts to lessen come to the end of the week. The volatility would be much more minimize by the end of the week with the year about to end.

 

The U.S. tax reform bill was successfully passed that require Trump to seal it after which is anticipated soon. This is considered as an achievement for Trump as everyone in the team worked hard for this. It would also be beneficial for the large companies and gain more profit which would bring in more jobs in the U.S.

 

Trump has stabilized his position at the top which would now shift his attention to other bills such as the healthcare reform bill. However, the stock market and foreign exchange of the U.S. dollar did not have that much vigor, as the dollar is starting to decline recently compared to its position last week. It has been all over the market which supported the euro instead.

 

The EUR/USD pair was seen to touch on the 1.19 level but moved after into a consolidated yesterday. Trades are being traded just currently below the said level. When it comes to news, the final GDP data from the U.S. is anticipated today but there will be no other economic news to be published from the Eurozone. Hence, the trading range is presumed to tighten especially since the holidays are approaching.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: December 26, 2017

 

The euro against the U.S. dollar started with a tight trading week in a facile environment in consideration of the current market situation. Majority of traders are on a vacation this Christmas holiday season and the New Year whereas most of them would not working. This would result to lower volatility and liquidity that would limit the range of trading for this week.

 

There is also not much economic data on the calendar with fewer fundamentals in the next days to come. The steady dollar was supported by the tax reform bill, which was recently passed by the Senate and signed by the U.S. President. This would benefit m0st of the companies with lots of tax benefits which is as much as important to Trump and his team. At the same time, this is foreseen to improve the labor market and boost the economy in the succeeding years.

 

Hence, the dollar gained a short-term boost from the bill which will most likely be in effect for this week. The euro is being traded in a right range with minor consolidation in the past few months. Although, the fundamental new was not enough to successfully break the trading range.

It is yet to be discovered where the trend will range and if it is sufficient to sustain the pair within its range until January.

 

For today, there is not much economic news that is anticipated to be released from the eurozone or from the U.S. It is holidays in most part of Europe, which could result to tight trading range and consolidation throughout the day.

It was a holiday in the majority of the places in Europe, including the U.K. that makes it not surprising if the pound persisted to consolidate and traded within a tight range for the most part of trading yesterday.  The GBP/USD pair falls within a tight range since there is few major economic news.

 

It will not be surprising to have lesser volatility and liquidity this holiday season. At the same time, there is not much placing of trades and more on profit-taking in the past week, which can be seen mostly in the smaller market such as bitcoin. Although, it was not that obvious for pound despite there is a bigger market that is why grabbing the opportunity of any selling of this pair prior to holidays is relevant.

 

Come the second week of January, both liquidity and volatility will most likely gain momentum. Until then, traders should get ready for choppiness within a range near the end of the year. The market has reopened following a long weekend yet, there is still fewer traders this week since most still wanted to extend their vacation until New Year. Hence, consolidation of the pair within a tight range will persist in the next few days.

 

When it comes to data the Conference board’s Consumer confidence data from the U.S. is anticipated to be released today but this would not bring much volatility in the market. There is no major economic news from the U.K. Thus, there will be low trading and slow movement in the market for the rest of the day.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: January 16, 2018

 

There is a hint of bullishness in yesterday’s trading session of the pound since there is no fundamental news to affect the market aside from the bank of the holiday in the U.S. As a result, the pound bulls have become relax in trading. Most likely, this is one of the reasons why the pair has been steady in the past few days but failed to break the level of 1.38 amid the weakness of the dollar.

 

Other than that, it could possibly be because of a big news expected to come this week, particularly the inflation data and retail sales data. Traders and investors anticipate the data prior to positioning themselves to any direction. The incoming data from the U.K. came out stronger which brought choppiness to trading while others came in weak, which has brought further uncertainty to the Brexit negotiations and affect the U.K. economy.

 

Yet, the pound was able to take advantage of euro strengthening and the weakening of the dollar. Although, this may not last for a long time. More importantly, the pound is beginning to gain momentum to move higher regardless of its condition. Also, rate hikes from the U.K. are also becoming an issue after its one rate hike last year. The succeeding hikes are deemed to be more important and the central bank has to be certain on its support actions from last year to boost the U.K. economy and confidence of investors.

 

There is no major news from the U.S. for today but the U.S. is presumed to return to the market following their long weekend holiday. On the other end, the inflation from the U. K. is highly anticipated later this day as it will have a significant insight on the movement of the market and give a hint on which direction does the GBP/USD pair will go.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: January 18, 2018

 

There is choppiness in trading the EUR/USD pair and continues its trading between 1.22 and 1.23 without no specific direction yet. Yesterday, the pair moved higher in the first half of the day, which will most likely favor the dollar. However, it shifted by the end of the day when the dollar has recovered and became stronger.

 

The euro has been gaining momentum in the past week although the euro rallied against the dollar in the previous month, which was influenced by the decline of the dollar while the euro became stronger. It was only in the past week that the euro started to strengthen independently due to the possibility of ECB tapering and completion of the quantitative easing by the end of the year. This largely influenced the euro as it rose higher and has most likely continued during the first half of yesterday. It reached the level of 1.23 and established a beeline on the trend.  

 

Yet, this was reversed during the second half of the day as the ECB was thrown into a disarray following the quick rise of the euro and should be brought down through statements and confirmation of the QE to return to normal levels. It clearly shows that their position would lead to termination of the QE, which was further supported by the incoming data. Although the central would rather strengthen the euro slowly. Thus, this supported the euro and slid down while the dollar was able to grow during the U.S. trading session and further pushed the price lower than 1.22 as of the moment.

 

For today, there are is no major news from the U.S. or the eurozone, which will most likely continue the choppiness for the day. Support is found in the area of 1.2180 then move further towards 1.21.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: January 22, 2018

 

The euro is being traded steadily since morning today. It seems that it weakened during Friday and it was able to support the level of 1.22 following the rebound to the support area and soared higher which continues until today. There has been major news from the U.S. and the eurozone which would bring volatility in the market.

 

Although the volatility present was insufficient to push the pair in either direction and stayed within a tight range between 1.22 and 1.23 over the past few weeks. There is a risk for a government closure as the bill has been passed which was blocked in the Senate through suffrage. It is anticipated that there will be an interim bill which will occur during the U.S. session. Nevertheless, this would have an effect on the dollar amid the various problems the U.S. encounter in the past few years.

 

This would be problematic for the Trump administration, which is not surprising. There are reports where the debate between Merkel and SPD party would continue looking for a coalition for short-term. This would keep the euro buoyed up during this period of time. There is also a press conference by the end of the week which is anticipated by the market on the decision of ECB.

 

For today, there are no major news from the U.S or the eurozone, which is already anticipated to happen in the second half of January. Although, there is various economic news to be reconsidered on either side, which would induce the volatility at bay.

AUD/USD Technical Analysis: January 24, 2018

 

The Australian currency slightly declined amid Monday’s trading session and moved lower at the 0.7950 region. The rebound on short-term charts are expected along with the resumption of the consolidation period under the major level. A break over the 0.80 zone will enable the market to move upwards or impose a  “buy-and-hold” sentiment. However, creating a gap on top of the 0.81 region would indicate a  “buy-and-hold” tone with some kind of aggressiveness.

 

Usually, the gold market is needed in order for the AUD/USD to strengthen its move as well as to break out to the upside direction. It is expected that this situation will continue. Moreover, the gold markets drifted sideways aimed to hit the market in the near-term, but there is some support below which will trigger buyers to push again to the upside sooner or later. If this happens, the 0.78 area could possibly be the main contention area and short-term selling opportunity will hold up in that level. While a break down below there would hit the overall trend but this has low chance to happen with 10% of probability.

 

Expect for some massive volatility but there is an attempt at forming an attractive base in order to drive higher. It should be noted that the market will advance higher in the future but it should go along with gold.

NZD/USD Technical Analysis: January 25, 2018

 

The Kiwi dollar broke out to upside amid the trading session yesterday, reaching the higher level of 0.74 which is close to the top of the general consolidation area in the longer term and extends to the 0.75 region. The 0.68 below is the lowest area of the largest consolidation zone which means higher price level. However, the American currency is obviously struggling and it remains to be seen for any upward movements. While pull backs could possibly offer value.

 

A break on top of the 0.75 handle would enable the market to edged higher or an attempt to reach the 0.7750 or 0.80 level. The volatility is projected to continue and the short-term pullback will arrive sooner or later. It is advised not to get attracted in selling due to factor against the US dollar sentiment. Market players should also take focus on commodity markets and the overall risk appetite for this helps gauge the next probable movement of the New Zealand currency. This is the expected event in the longer-term correlation and the Kiwi together with the commodities should ramp up, this will have higher chance to happen if the “soft commodities”  rallied. In addition to it, shorting could completely change the sentiment of the Forex market.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: January 29, 2018

 

The British pound against the U.S. dollar has been declining in the past few days as the dollar strengthens, which seems to be the focus at the present time. Following the comments of Trump, the dollar is steadfast due to the positive economic data in the U.S. This resulted in a reversal of profit for the dollar.

 

The dollar has been behind since the middle of December and the pound has been one of the strong contenders for this period of time. It gained more than 800 pips against the greenback. There are indications of exhaustion and weakness for the pair. However, it is not just the weakened dollar that buoyed up the pair, the strong pound along with all the soft Brexit plans at the end of the talks.

 

This supported the pound to rise across markets, especially against the dollar which has been weak recently. However, besides the rhetorics from Trump, there is an increasing expectation for the new Fed chief Powell to take his post, as well as strong incoming data that would strengthen the dollar and induce Fed for rate hikes. The center of attention will be on the dollar in the next few days which is also anticipated to persist for a short period of time.

 

There is no major report anticipated from the U.S. or from the U.K. today, which is not surprising as it is the first day of the week. However, since the end of the month is approaching, a lot of flows is already expected and trades to be positioned prior the new month which would bring volatility to the pound. This is likely to persist in the next few days since the end of the month is near. Pressure will be eminent in trading but support will be in the area of 1.40.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: January 31, 2018

 

Yesterday, it was forecasted that the British pound major pair will find it support in the level of 1.40 and it was anticipated to the line dividing the bulls and the bears. This happened as the price plunged down towards the area of 1.40 and further down for a short period of time before bouncing upward again.

 

Buying and the rebound of the pair were strong which resulted in an upward trend of the pair towards the area of 1.41. The trade stays beyond this level as of the moment. The volume of purchases indicates the strong presence of buyers. Nonetheless, it is essential for traders to keep in mind the end of the month is near and the prices are likely to be influenced by the month-end flows and any move at this period of time, which should be not be overlooked by traders.

 

Although, fundamental factors did not strongly affect the pair, as well as economically,  in the past few days which is already anticipated at the end of the month is approaching. These activities are moves largely are not part of the overall trend, which indicates that money flows have a bigger impact more than everything else. Hence, it is significant to wait on the sidelines and observe as this kind of trend will persist throughout the day since today is the last day of the month.

 

Regarding the economic news, ADP National Employment Report from the U.S. is anticipated to be released today but none from the United Kingdom. The ADP data is considered as a prerequisite to the NFP data, which will be published on Friday. Traders should anticipate for a strong data to keep their expectations for a rate hike from the Federal Reserve at a faster rate in the succeeding months. In general, the market is hoping for three rate hike for the year but a positive outcome through high figures on reports are necessary.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: February 19, 2018

 

The single European currency and the British pound shared the same fate on Friday, as it showed high volatility during the first half of the day due to the weakening of the US dollar. While in the afternoon, the strength of the American currency prevailed which helped regain the profits of the sterling of the past few days. It further helped the GBP/USD pair to end the weak in a sluggish approach which indicates correction in the following days.

 

The pound was secured because of the dollar instability and pushed the Cable pair to reach the 1.38 zone until the psychologically important level of 1.40. Briefly, the pair moved away from any danger for good and the pound bulls attempt to stabilize the momentum in continuing the upward movement in the near term.

 

As the decline of the dollar does not have enough economic data or fundamentals to support it, the rebound in the US currency did the same. This resulted in the downturn of the pound, pushing through the 1.41 mark and traded underneath the 1.40 area for a short period of time. Subsequently, the pair successfully closed the week above the 1.40 level. As of this writing, the Cable pair continued trading on top of that region and the price level is expected to remain on that point, relative to the bulls and bears. In case the pair remained steady above 1.40, the bulls will take control which would likely to be seen in the coming weeks.

 

Ultimately, there is no major news from the United Kingdom while there is a bank holiday in the United States today. It is safe to say that consolidation and ranging are possible while market players anticipate for bigger investors to show up its intentions and start to move in a certain trend in order to tag along. It is believed that the USD will gain strength in the medium term.

EUR/GBP Technical Analysis: February 26, 2018

 

The euro against the British pound broke lower than the Friday trading session and reach lower than the level of 0.88. There is a massive support around the area with a lot of noise in the long-term.  

 

The presence of noise will most likely persist with the headlines as the result of negotiations between Brussels and London which is likely to influence the pair. At the same time, traders should anticipate for volatility. Looking at the weekly chart, the pair ranges 300-pips and it will remain for some time until there is a definite proposition for the negotiation. The market should anticipate for this to continue in a while.

 

Traders could utilize in accordance to the stochastic oscillator as they will be trading back and forth in short-term. There is also a probability for negativity with the level of 0.87 in the floor below. The closer this level can be reached, it is wise to buy in this market and will be the focus on this move. Traders could sell at some point and volatility is likely to persist unless it turns around higher than the level of 0.8840. Hereinafter, buying is possible and continues to be volatile. However, if you are not strong enough and focus on the consolidation of the area and a lot of opportunities to gain profit in a well-defined rectangle.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: February 27, 2018

 

The euro against the U.S. dollar has been trading closely on either side at the level of 1.23 as the market presumes the pair to move further.

 

The EUR/USD pair is moving within a tight range in the past 24 hours which is already anticipated in Monday trading session. Low volatility is not surprising in the current market condition. Traders are likely to position themselves for this week on Mondays which causes low volatility.  

 

Similarly, trading remained the same despite the speech of ECB President Draghi yesterday. The speech met the expectations with him saying positively on the growth of the economy in the eurozone. He is recognized to be dovish but the fact remains of the steady growth of the economy as reflected in the incoming data and remains positive in the past few months. This has preserved the euro to keep afloat in the past 24 hours although the movements have been very minimal.

 

The market is also anticipated to gain volatility and liquidity as the end of the month is approaching. At the same time, price fluctuations to be inundated by trade positioning and monthly end flow. Options are also about to expire in the upcoming days, which will keep the market busy on particular price range.  

 

The market will probably focus on the dollar with the new Fed chief, Jerome Powell, to testify and engage the market waiting for signals on monetary policies and future rate hikes in the next few months. As for the economic data, both the durable goods data and the trade balance data from the U.S. will be published and if it did not meet expectations, the dollar is likely to roll downward.

EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: March 6, 2018

 

The EUR/USD pair constantly trading in a strong manner as it moves away from the election results in Italy. The focus remains to be on the dollar weakening felt across the markets. It is somewhat surprising for those who expected that the Italian election will bring an impact towards the euro area but the results of further led concerns of the EU leaders.

 

Italy is the third biggest economy in the European region and the election results indicate the increasing anti-establishment votes. This event is common from all over the countries especially from the United States to Asia. Hence, this should be one of the main concerns of the Euro officials since this kind of trend may grow continually which could hurt the euro and its existence in the following years. However, this does not necessarily mean that the euro is free from any burden while traders appear to be happy about the maintained current situation. This the reason behind the move of the euro/dollar pair through the 1.2350 level as of this writing

 

Ultimately, there are no important economic news or data from the EU or the US for this day but this reflects some ranging and consolidation in the near-term. Also, the markets anticipate further set of data in the second half of the week from the United States, indicating a short-term trend for the greenbacks.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: March 7, 2018

 

The British pound resumes its uptrend amid the weakened dollar across all market in the past 24 hours. Although the increase was not as high as it can be, it was able to move steadily which has assisted the British currency to recover from its lows and have a steady uptrend over the past few days. These gave the investors more confidence during the said period of time.

 

Meanwhile, the sterling pound has been moving steadily and further boosted by the lack of economic data. The ongoing Brexit negotiation following the set plan also supports the pound. Euro leaders have been busy with their domestic concerns and at the same time, rumors and commentaries about them have also lessened At the same time, the Brexit negotiation has assisted the dollar to move steadily.

 

The dollar got behind against other currencies following the resignation of Trump’s economic advisor, John Cohn, which is not favorable for the president and his team as they have had some difficulties in handling situation in the past few months. On the other hand, this is advantageous for the dollar as the overall market which is the reason for the dollar’s decline during this period of time.

 

The market is getting ready for the slew of data in the upcoming days with a new month has begun. The ADP  employment report expected to be released today will hint at the results of another incoming data of Friday. If the data came out weakly, this would further push the GBP/USD pair towards the area of 1.40.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: March 21, 2018

 

The British pound against the U.S. dollar had a downward correction due to the pressure from the dollar which has been strengthening across markets yesterday. The pair positions just over the area of 1.40 and there seems to be no threat for the bulls but it is still uncertain who will lead the trend.

 

There will be high volatility in the market with the expectation of the FOMC rate announcement which would then be followed by a press conference. It is highly anticipated that the Fed will raise their rates for the first time, which is highly possible. However, we cannot be certain if the market expectations of a hawkish decision would be met, which the market bulls area also hoping for.

 

However, if the greenback weakens, this would come about just for a short period with the incoming data to dominate the market and boost the dollar. For tomorrow, we have the BOE meeting to look forward to but it is yet to be known if this will have a hawkish tone, in consideration of the Brexit talks in the past few weeks. If this happens, traders should expect for volatility.

 

Considering all this, traders are suggested not to presume any outcome or direction and trade deciding on the how the situation presents. It is best to wait for the markets to settle down then decide later on when the market has stabilized. For today, the FOMC meeting will be the center of attention that could result in consolidation in the market.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: April 2, 2018

 

The GBP/USD pair continued trading around the 1.40 support zone which is expected to be the battleground between the bears and the bulls in the near term. However, it is difficult to make a conclusion since today is a holiday in many countries in celebrating the Easter Sunday. Hence, liquidity and volatility are predicted to be extremely low.

 

The Cable managed to move over the 1.42 level in the past few weeks amid the dollar weakening and also because the BOE’s hawkishness which continues to become a stronger economy as the Brexit process become smoother. The process resumed a slow, steady and continuous manner and it would take less than a year prior to the completion of the process.

 

So far, the British economy supported for such improvement as the process continue to smoothen and the UK had a positive performance which helped the Bank of England to conduct a rate increase during this period.

 

The resumption of a stable economy is beneficial for the central bank to consider further rate hikes ahead and this helped the BOE to maintain a hawkish stance. These events pushed the pair near its highs in the short-term range but it met a lot of selling as the American currency strengthen. As a result, the GBPUSD pair hovered around the significant level of 1.40. In case that the support was broken, the bears will have an opportunity to dominate again the market.

 

Ultimately, there is no major news from the UK or the US since its holiday in most parts of the world which indicates that the volatility and liquidity would be low for that day.

Missile launch directed to the specific target in Syria from the U.S. and their allies although the effect is not that big impact. Last week, there are topics regarding the possibility of a war between the U.S. and Syria. The situation is worsening that resulted in choppiness in the market.

 

A lot of investors has become anxious because of choppiness and the market has become more appealing. Hence, the trend was seen to have consolidated and trades in a range. The attacks over the weekend were said to be from the United States. On a lighter note, this is just for short-term which happened one time that cooled down concerns about a war. This has largely calmed down the market that is reflected in the market in the present condition.

 

Euro has been trading in a range for a number of weeks already and the tendency to break out in any direction is not clearly visible at this time. Although, there are breakout attempts on either side but did not come out with anything due to uncertainties caused by various factors including the area of Syria, the trade war between China and the U.S. as well as, the QE program.

 

For today, the retail sales data from the U.S. is unexpected to be released today as the first day of the week. Nonetheless, there is a slow data for today. Excluding the geopolitics concern, this data is anticipated to be more appealing that could initiate the trend for short-term.

USD/JPY Technical Analysis: May 7, 2018

 

Investors are observing the movement of the 10-year U.S. Treasury note futures contract following the appreciation of the USD/JPY pair. The statements and the recent jobs report influencing the 10-year Treasury notes, which is likely to be bullish especially that it is in inverse relationship to the interest rates. An increase in the T-notes would then lead to a drop in yields. A weaker Treasury yield would bring pressure to the Japanese major pair.

 

The USD/JPY pair began the week with higher expectations of the interest rates prior to the latest Fed monetary policy statement yet, the price movements suggests the disappointment to the reports. The pair rallied for the week to the highest level at 110.028 since February 5. However, the pair withdrew by -0.12% or 0.127 and closed the week lower at 109.060.

 

On May 2, the funds' rate sustained the target of 1.5 percent to 1.75 percent according to the Federal Open Market Committee, which is already anticipated. They say that the overall inflation excluding food and energy is close to the two percent. The economy has improved as the business fixed investment grew more steadfast.

 

Unanimously, the committee has decided to keep the rates unchanged disregarding the expectation of public for an aggressive course of action. Various officials are scheduled to have their speech in the upcoming days.

 

Fed has not given any signals to the pace of future hikes which investors believe to be implemented twice with the next rate hike anticipated in June. Subsequent rate hikes will probably be around after four months or on the last month of the year.

 

As they aim to hold the rate hikes twice with the not-so-good U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls report on Friday. The headline resulted below expectations as the unemployment rate reached an 18-year low. The average hourly earning seems to have the inflation out of control.

 

Selling pressure would persist to control the USD/JPY pair this week with investors continue to book profits after the Fed announcement on Wednesday, as well as, the U.S. jobs report on Friday.

 

The sentiment of the Federal Reserve was relatively dovish while allowing the inflation to purse the two percent target. Moreover, the wage growth did not meet expectations on the employment report released on Friday.

 

Besides the bullish trend of the 10-year Treasury notes futures contract which inversely affects the drop of yields, traders were able to place money on the net short position of the 10-year futures, with over 1 million shorts, according to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

 

However, the USD/JPY could decline sharply if these shorts start to cover.

 

Based on the latest reports, the inflation will be the main focus due to the anticipated release on the Producer s on Wednesday and Consumer Price on Thursday.

 

Some speakers including the Fed Chair Jerome Powell will have an assembly on Wednesday at 19.15 GMT.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: May 17, 2018

 

The U.S. dollar moved along against the Canadian dollar on Wednesday but slid down following the release of a lower inventory data that came out during the day. This is favorable for the Canadian dollar but there are factors in play for long-term.

 

The result went for a bullish sentiment for oil, as well as, the Canadian dollar. It dropped as low as 1.2770 at the beginning, prior to a rebound. There is also an important support found just below the level of 1.2750. Thus, I anticipate for bounce off since there is more interest on the interest rate differential more than anything else just below 1.2450 handle as of the moment. Indeed, loonies can be used as a proxy in the oil market which is likely to persist but the headline is no focus on the 10-year interest rates in America.

 

The rate hike attracts more demand for the greenback, which will then lead to a higher exchange rate, especially since the economy is cooling down. Interest rates are likely to rise higher soon. Actually, the oil market is one of the factors that support the loonies. If this is reversed, it will rally to the upper region. We should expect some bounce later on, which would open buying opportunity, especially when the 10-year interest rates in the U.S. break higher than the 3.06% level, which is an indicator that more investors are looking out for. Shorting this pair may not be possible until it reaches a fresh new low.

GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: June 11, 2018

 

The pound/dollar pair continued to trade around the 1.3430 region on the back of the failure to create bullish momentum in the previous week, as it was beaten by the major handle and the markets are waiting for further progress in Brexit this week. Due to the scheduled FOMC rate hike in the upcoming week, the interest rate differential of the GBP and the USD is predicted to move in different directions which could hold the Pound on its starting position and push the British currency into the recent lows. Following the recently rejected  Irish border solution, market participants await for further news within this week while the United Kingdom continue to negotiate in looking for the middle ground for the hard-line Brexiteers and the EU leadership in Brussels. Nevertheless, Prime Minister Theresa May was caught in between and trying to find fair solutions for both sides.

 

The upcoming week is projected to be really busy for the Sterling pound since 4 out of 5 trading session this week brought extreme impact to the UK calendar that could support a high level of volatility for market players. Today has plenty of data for Britain which will be all published at 08:30 GMT, however, the focus will be on the  Manufacturing Industrial Production data which is expected to remain unchanged at 2.9%. The US session today appears to be in smooth sailing according to the economic calendar, but traders might deal with the G7 summit blowout, wherein US President Donald Trump leave the summit earlier and depart the US’ support of the G7 communiqué, following a Tweet from POTUS aboard Air Force One heads to Singapore for the Trump-Kim summit.

 

At the same time, the figures for Average Earnings Index +Bonus (Apr), Claimant Count Change (May), Core CPI & PPI input and Core retail sales in the next three consecutive trading sessions. Moreover, the daily chart indicates that the GBP/USD currency pair corrected higher from the lows of 1.3205 alongside the diverging technical oscillators. On the other hand, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) had an unexpected move towards the oversold area and bounced back to the GBP, which descends to the levels of the beginning of last week. The Slow Stochastic resumed moving in an upward trajectory. The daily chart of the 50-day and 100-day moving average formed a death star crossover, this means that there is an initial downside potential of the Cable pair to break the 1.3300 region prior attacking the area of 1.3200. The upside of the pair is necessary to break back above the 1.3380 to the 1.3450 target, which is the last week’s high.

The British pound rallied a little during the Monday session and reaches the level of 149.50 before apparent signs of exhaustion. Higher than 150 signifies exhaustion in the market with expected resistance. Thus, we could strike on the opportunity to short this pair. It looks like the market has overexpanded and faces strong psychological level above 150. 

 

Although it is still suggested to short this pair in a smaller move, the long-term selling will bring the rates back to 150. A break higher would give the green light to traders in applying the “buy and hold” strategy yet, the strong political tension around Britain could strengthen the Sterling pound for long-term. The pair will continue to chop around and eventually make way for some clarity that the trend lacks as of the moment. For the short term, sellers are anticipated to be present while more sellers will join in the long-term above the trend. Nevertheless, we should keep the possibilities open as it may change anytime. Noise will still be present because of the political tension in the U.K. and global risk appetite. Hence, small trades will be the ideal approach for this market since noise will be the main impulse in overall trading while headlines will likely cause sudden movements in short-term.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: July 18, 2018

 

The euro rallied at the beginning of the Tuesday session and reach up to 1.1750 prior to retreating back at 1.700 below, which were the trades began for the day. We can expect noise to be present in the pair considering that there are Brexit negotiations and a strong dollar. Yet, looking at the charts, clearly, it shows that the true resistance would be above 1.1850 while the floor of the pair can be found at 1.15 below. 

 

Given the high frequency in trading, there is a huge amount of volatility in the EUR/USD pair. At the end of the day, the 1.17 level offers support which is a good indicator or further goes up on Wednesday. Also, the 1.1675 level offers support where there is also a high demand. I assume that the market will look for value on dips, especially for hunters. Yet, traders should still be careful in putting money at stakes. Hence, I would suggest to trade slowly and then gradually add more to reach new fresh highs. 

 

In general, the pair could stay long in consolidation range which should be considered given that there will be a lot of noise and headlines could influence the pair for sudden movements.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: July 19, 2018 

 

The euro against the U.S. dollar is traded slightly in the area of 1.1650 but profits can be gained during the European session. The uptrend took place in the early hours of Asian market session due to recent bullish trend across the globe booking profits on the dollar. Yet, the outlook of the greenback is still optimistic because of hawkish rhetorics from the U.S. Fed chair Jerome Powell, which would probably affect the European and American session. Stocks on major world market reached a one-month high on Wednesday after strong corporate earnings. Meanwhile, the U.S. surpassed the levels on a three-week high against major currencies with more bidding involving the dollar. Yet, the profit booking activity slowed down the momentum of the dollar for a while. According to Powell, the United States would go for a steady growth in the course of trading and held back risks of the U.S. economy on worsening trade conflict. 

 

The dollar index grew towards 95.4, reaching a three-week high against other currencies and then settled in the area of 95.08 with an increase of 0.2%. Two more rate hikes are anticipated this year from the Federal Reserve in reaction to rising inflationary pressures. On the other hand, the ECB is presumed to raise their rates only in the middle of next year. The eurozone grew for the first time last year since the financial crisis between 2007 and 2008. Yet, the most recent survey of 100 economists results showed growth momentum has already reached the highest point. Nonetheless, the worsening trade war between the U.S. and their trading partners still presents real risks to the eurozone and influenced economists to lessen their growth forecast.

The single European currency had broken down amid trading course on Thursday while a lot of negativity continue to be in this market. Forecasts say that the market would likely continue to be volatile but the market is determined to move lower near the 1.15 region, an area which has been a significant support in the past and a little bit of buying pressure can be seen in this zone.  While the current point of at issue is whether or not traders can break down beneath that level. A successful break down will be a great destruction for the Euro.

 

Otherwise, a rally from that level and regain the 1.16 zone has a high probability to happen. In that case, we could determine a move on top of the 1.1660 region followed by a potential rally. We can see the overall consolidation below the 1.15 area, which serves as the floor and 1.1850 above as the ceiling of consolidation where we are currently fixed.

 

It looks like that we will be stuck in this range for the next couple of days or weeks since it's already mid-summer and there many large traders from all over the world who are out of their offices. Aside from that, there are also varying issues regarding the Brexit which causes trading quite noisy and difficult for the EUR/USD currency pair.

AUD/USD Technical Analysis: July 23, 2018 

 

The Australian dollar against the U.S. dollar trades a bit higher during the Monday session. A bit of a reaction was observed as the dollar weakened due to the added pressure on the Trump’s remarks to the Fed policy and his struggle with the strengthening of the greenback. 

 

Investors reaction to Trump’s rhetorics lead to the tight trading of the pair against the different monetary policy between the hawkish Fed and a dovish central bank of Australia that makes the dollar appealing for investment to traders alike. 

 

Also, traders are hesitant about their positioning prior to the weekly quarterly consumer inflation data of Australian and increasing Treasury yields from the U.S. 

 

The major trend has decline based on the daily swing chart. The trend will move up on trades towards .7443 and if it further reaches the level of .7318, the downtrend is likely to continue. 

 

Short-term trading of the pair will be between .7310 and .7484 with 50% pivot level at .7397. It seems that pair is being traded strongly at this level that could assist an early uptrend tendency. Traders should act on it to counter the support level on the first test today. However, if it fails to hold this level, the price could weaken with the main range at .7677 to .7310. If the trend goes up, then we can expect the retracement zone to be at .7494 to .7537 which will become the primary target in the upside. 

 

On a technical aspect, the AUD/USD pair will be based on the reaction of the pair for short-term trading at .7434.

USD/JPY Technical Analysis: July 24, 2018 

 

Once again, the U.S. dollar dropped against the Japanese yen in day trading on Monday session. There was sufficient support found on the trendline and crossed below the level of 111 yen. It seems that the market is attempting to recover from here. Thus, a short-term bounce might still be far from happening. Predominant selling activity is due to the currency war but, nonetheless, hunters will still find this appealing to reverse the situation. 

 

As shown on the chart, the price plunged to the uptrend line with intention to bounce up. This can actually be considered as a perfect test of the uptrend line and it looks like value hunters are will attempt to join the market now. A rebound can be bought but there will still be some noise around regardless of what happens next in the days to come. Hence, it is ideal to trade in smaller trade. Although there is sufficient amount of demand below, a lot of noise is present above. In long-term trades, there is a tendency of the pair to move because of the risk appetite. Therefore, in case that trade tension mitigates, the market might turn around. 

 

On the other hand, if the market breaks lower than the uptrend line, the next target of the market will be the level of 110, which can serve as a support. Hence, it is likely for a correction to happen given the oversold condition of the pair, at least the in the next few trading sessions. Assessing the trend as a whole, there are higher risks on the upper channel than below but with high volatility around, traders should still be careful in trading this market.

GBP/JPY Technical Analysis: July 25, 2018

 

 

The sterling pound moved sideways amid trading session yesterday, with an exception for a slight reversal and bullish pressure. As of this writing, the  ¥146 level above was unable to break. While the previous ascending trend line was broken through which stimulate a little bit of resistance. In case of a slice above the  ¥147 region will prove the strength of the recovery. On the contrary, we can expect for a lot of sideways action in the near term.

 

There are forecasts that the area under the ¥145 will be supportive which would likely require some pressure to cut through that region. Generally, the market will contain plenty of noise with a slightly downward proclivity as to the concerns about trade battles and the like.

 

It should be noted that the GBP/JPY currency pair is very sensitive to global risk appetite alongside the added issue of political chaos in Great Britain, which slightly puts off this market downwards. The presence of some reversal is very difficult to deal with but if we reach higher than the  ¥147 level, then new profits will pour in the trading place and would accelerate further. While a break down underneath the  ¥145 level would probably open a way through the  ¥142.50 region.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: July 26, 2018 

 

 

The British currency drove higher amid trading course yesterday and attempt to grind above the 1.32 level. Generally, we can expect for the resumption of short-term pullbacks which may act as buying opportunities with a slower motion. In this case, shorting this market is not recommended due to the recent formation of some “basing pattern”. Also, there is a possibility of a move through the 1.32 region or 1.3250 eventually.

 

Traders should take note about the headlines which could possibly trigger issues with the sterling pound aside from the conflict between the Conservative Party and Theresa May, which argues for the common ground of the Brexit. Forecasts show that the market will begin searching for the level below 1.30 as the “absolute floor” of the GBP, hence, longer-term traders will buy the dips based on its value.

 

For some time, the pound became quite oversold and the “buy-and-hold” traders in the longer-term will return to the market to acquire benefits from lower prices. Ultimately, the dips can be seen turning around with impulsive trends and the top of 1.33 handle would likely be broken but may require a series of attempt to overcome that level.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: July 27, 2018 

 

 

The British currency had initially rallied yesterday but the 1.32 region appears to be slightly expensive. Moreover, the level around 1.3150 would likely have a lot of support underneath. It may take some time prior the buyers to return and push this market higher. Upon clearing the 1.32 zone, it is possible to trail through the 1.3250 area. This market appears to be bullish in general, however, the political issues with Great Britain may cause problems for the sterling pound. In the longer-term, there will be some resolution to the political theater which could help to resume an upward trend.

 

According to forecasts, the level below 1.30 is massively supportive since the figure is characterized as large, round, and psychologically significant. As expected, the weekly charts showed that it rebounded, indicating a higher possibility of buying pressure in that region. That area could be the “floor” of this market and considered as the most appropriate zone to begin purchases if there is any intention to move back there.

The single European currency paired with the US dollar and reach higher than the 1.17 region. But, we can see plenty of supply above that level which makes it interesting to break on top of the 1.1730 handle. With that, it indicates a move through the area of 1.1750 but it is hard to break higher until the release of news from the central banks as well as employment figures this week. It is believed that the market will extend to the upside while players search for some short-term selling opportunity in the past.

 

Aside from that, the market was in a symmetrical triangle and the jobs figure could possibly break out that triangle and we expect a longer-term trade play on Friday. Apparently, the entire scenario might change because of geopolitical issue or some kind of news, however, the market would likely continue to be noisy in the near term while it will be difficult to stay in the longer-term condition. A break above the 1.1750 zone will push the market on top of the 1.1850 region, which is the highest point of the overall consolidation in the longer term.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: August 1, 2018 

 

 

The sterling pound rallied throughout the day on Tuesday until the American hours, because the British currency takes advantage of the rally ahead which is expected to be an increase in the rate. Forecasts show that the market will resume to be very noisy or continue the “buy the rumor, sell the news.”  The level 1.32 would likely be resistive as well as the area of 1.33.

 

Meanwhile, short-term pullbacks have high chance to happen and in case that the Bank of England will not lift its rates tomorrow, then we can expect for a decline. Generally, the market establishes some kind of “floor” around the 1.30 zone but when the BOE will do something negligent, then a lot of support can be seen.

 

The buyers of dips anticipate moving over the 1.35 mark in the longer-term. Nevertheless, we should clarify such scenario with the Brexit prior making that move. Indecision might prevail over this market, so traders should keep their trading positions approximately small.

 

A break down underneath the 1.30 zone will test the 1.29 region consequently, hence, a break down to the downside will be extremely negative. The slightly positive bias range bound system is believed to be the best way to deal with this market.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: August 2, 2018 

 

 

The British currency had a pullback earlier amid trading course yesterday, however, the level below 1.31 seems to be supportive and rebounded within 30 pips through the American session. According to forecast, the 1.31 region will continue to have support with the involvement of the Bank of England, since such large moves are impossible with this market. Moreover, the short-term pullbacks would likely open doors for buying opportunities, but the next scenario will be determined by the statement from London. Interest rate hike is further anticipated, making the statement more attractive to the traders’ attention.

 

When the UK’s central bank lifted its rates in the future, the British pound will gain optimism but it seems to be some kind of “one and done” scenario and may result to some selloff. The 1.32 region above will be the resistance, but a cut through on top of that level would push a move higher.

 

While a gap lower than the 1.31 mark would search for a significant support around 1.30 zone. An area that is considered to be supportive in the longer term and could offer a lot of opportunities to acquire major value.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: August 3, 2018 

 

 

At the beginning of Tuesday session, the euro dropped sharply with the support level found at 1.16, which is the bottom of the symmetrical triangle as a large round psychological number. Hereinafter, it won’t be long before the market attempts to break out of the symmetrical triangle since the jobs data will reach it. If the pair breaks the level of 1.16, the market could slide down towards 1.15 where there is an important support. Moving around, the pair breaks higher than 1.1750 that offers resistance and breakthrough on this level would push the price towards 1.1850. 

 

It is not unexpected that the pair will move in the middle of the symmetrical triangle after the trading session with the release of jobs data. There is a lot of noise in the market amid the subdued month of August that slowed things down. It seems that there is a massive support at 1.15 and it will be a significant event for a break lower. It is likely for the price to consolidate in the next few weeks. In this case, a breakout on the symmetrical triangle will dismiss it.

USD/JPY Fundamental Analysis: August 6, 2018 

 

 

The USD/JPY currency pair trades slightly lower on Monday morning, however, the pair was able to keep its position above the Friday’s low. The market lost its entire gains after accelerating to 112.152 level and followed by the Bank of Japan’s decision on monetary policy last week.

 

While both monetary policy decisions of the U.S. Federal Reserve and Bank of Japan neutralized each other last week and much of the price activity favored safe haven purchases linked with the increasing trade battle between China and the United States.

 

Another factor that contributed to the weakening of the USDJPY was the U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls report that came mixed on Friday. The US labor growth further declined than predicted in July, but the weak jobless rate indicates that the job market conditions tighten. The traders of the dollar/yen pair continue to observe the  U.S. Treasury yields as it dropped on Friday after the labor report. Also, the insufficient economic data on Monday allowed the USDJPY investors to focus on the U.S. Treasury yields and such developments with the trading relationships of the US and China.

 

Moreover, the expected direction of the USD/JPY for today can be identified by the trader's respond towards the 50% to 61.8% retracement zone at 111.459 to 111.295 in the near term. A sustained move at 111.459 would likely create the required impetus for an upside bias, while a sustained trend below 111.295 indicates the existence of sellers.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: August 7, 2018 

 

 

The sterling pound had a significant break down as this week started along with some current issues regarding the Brexit. However, the trend for the next day seems crucial. The level below 1.29 is massively supportive according to the longer-term charts, which serves as the bottom of the zone in FX markets. Hence, a break down under that zone will indicate a longer-term sell signal. 

 

On the other hand, a reversal and a rebound would prompt buyers to return and pick up some value. This will further heighten some optimistic news from the United Kingdom which involves Brexit.

 

The next target for a break down is the 1.2750 region or the 1.25 level eventually. The GBP remains to be difficult to deal with due to a lot of concerns regarding its economy. While volatility can be reliable for the pound/dollar for some time.

USD/JPY Technical Analysis: August 8, 2018 

 

The U.S. dollar slid down against the Japanese yen to rise on Tuesday, although, there is a bit of noise down below 111 that could reverse the situation and appeal to buyers to jump in. Concerns on trade war continue to prevail on the market, which can be viewed as “ground zero” on the headlines. It may not take long before the traders turn around that can be influenced by the headlines going out. 

 

Risk appetite moves along with the pair which should be always kept in mind. It is logical that the trading activity will take place in this area in the next 24 hours but if the price breaks lower than 111, there is a possibility for a break down lower than 111. There is a chance if the price moves down to 110.50 and even further to 110. Moving up, the level of 112 offers a lot of resistance and currently, a return to the recent highs may be my target but it is not necessarily a big move to the north, at least not until the trade war between China and the U.S. is settled. There is a high optimism in trading for short-term and traders should expect for choppiness and range-bound trading that is already common at this time of the year.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: August 10, 2018 

 

 

The British currency seesawed during the trading course yesterday while testing the 1.29 region for resistance but, there is no dramatic selloff happened. As of this writing, the GBP/USD is oversold and many professional traders await for a rebound to begin selling again. While retail traders are very good in “chasing the trade” which makes them sell down from that level.

 

Apparently, there are a lot of problems with Brexit and because of that, people are waiting for the headlines from London especially when it has something to do with the referendum or the consensus with the UK Conservative Party.

 

Eventually, it seems that the pound/dollar pair would likely reach even lower but traders should not let this to happen because the pair is almost oversold. It should be noted that the level above 1.30 will serve as the resistance. Sooner or later, traders will beat up the sterling pound, however, there are scarcely any of them who are currently selling. It is suggested to move near the 1.2750 zone for the next couple of weeks, but the unity with the Conservative Party would support this market to grow.

 

It looks like that the weakening of the pound will nearly end because of the few people who remained short in this market and nobody wants to suffer from a rapid price decline. While selling rallies in the near-term on signs of exhaustion is expected to remain effective.

The British pound was priced at 1.2750 in the early session with the support at 1.27. Currently, the pair is traded at 1.2763, dropped by 0.07% on the day, implying signs of consolidation. In the previous week, the pair returned full scale due to risk aversion as a precaution to the Turkish banking sector in the emerging market. Meanwhile, traders are moving back to the US dollar with risk flows at a full reverse while the British pound is presumed to continue with a strong bearish sentiment against the greenback after the Bank of England Governor Mark Carney & Trade Secretary Liam Fox gave an indication of a no-deal Brexit possibility.

 

In the technical perspective, there are hints of a continuous bearish approach despite the fundamental news hinting on a bullish pullback possibility. For a third succeeding week, the pair has been on a bearish decline with no signs that could indicate downward exhaustion and technical indicators of strong downward slopes. The RSI is around 24 at the moment. On the 4-hour chart, the pair moves bearishly with the 20-SMA directed downward at 1.2865 and the momentum indicators just entered a modest upward correction. The technical levels on the resistance level will be at  1.2795, 1.2830, 1.2865  and the support level will be at 1.2720, 1.2680, 1.2645.

The trepidation of European banks has pushed the euro down over the past two days. Some reports reveal that a pastor has been detained in Turkey that could appease the tension between Turkey and the United States. Consequently, this pushed the Turkish lira and eased the pressure and fear in European banks. In these considerations, a resumption higher is likely to take place. Thus, there are technicals that should be monitored such as the level of 1.1475 which was an important supply level previously. Of course, there is the level of 1.15 and beyond that. Needless to say, there is a bit sign of pause and any signs of a problem could cause a rollover of the pair. 

 

One concern is the little information about the Turkish economy that puts them in the spotlight globally. Hence, the market is likely to be anxious, siding on a safe side over anything else. If the price breaks above the level of 1.154, the price will probably continue to rally substantially. Later on, a short-term rally could be reversed with the choice of wrong words.

The American currency attempted to rally amid trading session on Tuesday, however, the level above ¥111 appears to be very resistive to resume an upward movement. And this does not surprise the market at all since this area had some previous selling. At this moment, the market would likely find enough reason to respond to the current situation of Turkey.

 

Aside from that, another issue to worry about is the global trade conflicts which involve the United States and China. Eventually, finding a resolution to the current situation will enable the interest rate outlook and interest rate differential of both countries to engage actively in the market. With this, the main focus should be on trade when it comes to the USD/JPY currency pair but when factors involving the USD will ease, there would be a resumption of support. As the market would likely continue to favor this scenario due to increased US interest rates against the difficult status of the Bank of Japan for not being able to imply rate hikes in the future. The ¥110.25 level provides an initial target to the upside, followed by a move towards ¥112 level. A break down from that point, the level below  ¥110 should be supported.

The single European currency slightly edged lower amid trading course on Wednesday, and move lower to the significant level 1.13. It is possible to gain a bit of rebound from that area. Also, some type of selling opportunity is expected to see on rallies and shorting this market will show signs of exhaustion. A lot of concerns remain towards Turkey’s contagion to the EU, which would likely be seen as there is a shortage of US currency around the world.

 

As expected, the euro was beaten recently which demonstrates occasional value play and look to pick up dips. Traders should wait for a shooting star pattern on the hourly chart and the level above the 1.15 region is the “ceiling” of the market. Moreover, a significant break on top of that zone may consider purchasing this market as shown in the daily chart.

 

A downward movement can be anticipated in the near future. Based on some technical analysts, the market may reach as low as 1.05 at the end of 2018. The next potential target is 1.13.

The sterling pound attempted to rally yesterday but had some struggle at the 1.2735 level, an area that reaches up to 1.2750 and considered a major support zone in the longer-term charts. Failure to break above that level indicates a short-term rebound that will engage traders to join. The market uses the 1.27 region as a minor support for the daytime trading but it has low chance to change the general forecast for this market in general. The target is at the area of 1.25 which is regarded as a psychologically significant figure.

 

A break down beneath the 1.25 zone would likely offer an opportunity to sell or give up the sell-off period. It is believed that most of the Brexit selling had already been taken into account but we should expect for some downward pressure. Nevertheless, an extensive flat can be seen and the further scenario will begin when people would realize that the UK will separate from the EU to have its own empire.

The single European currency had rallied amid Asian trading yesterday and further break above the significant level 1.15. Nevertheless, the gains were only temporary followed by a pull back to test the region along with the onset of American hours. Moreover, this seems to be a completely impossible breakout which may lead to the thought that Turkey is still the concern of most traders.

 

It remains a question whether the hammer formation in the previous week indicates a technical rebound or value hunting. It seems hard to answer for now but we consider it more of a technical correction. There is a potential area that extends towards the 1.1550 region, which could open doors to reach the upside effortlessly and touching that zone will make an impressive situation.

 

As expected, headlines will move the market but traders should keep an eye to the American dollar as it tries to gain strength since the New York will begin the day. With this, the US dollar will certainly strengthen against the EUR/USD pair. While market players remain concerned about the current status of the European Union since the issue continues to linger in the traders’ minds. Take note of the headlines from Turkey because as their news worsens, it would greatly affect the Euro.

The euro rose higher during the Wednesday session but it may be difficult to reach the level of 1.16. This level may appeal to some value hunters especially close to the level of 1.1570 and the area of 1.15 to be psychologically important. Overall, the market will still worry about the Turkish problem but may be excessively inflated. At the same time, media may overplay the situation given the possibility to repeat another great recession which will quickly attract headlines attention.  

 

The level of 1.15 is significant as of the moment and if the market can hold this level, there is a chance for the price to rise higher. However, if the opposite happens and turns out negatively, it may wise to begin selling the pair. In this case, it would be best to be optimistic but still heedful until the level of 1.1850, which was previously the trading level at the top of the consolidation range. Noise should be anticipated but keeping in mind that other high-frequency trading algorithms in the market.

The sterling pound prevails over the market on Thursday, while the trading seems difficult because the 1.29 region became slightly resistive. The price action amid the day only emphasized the current volatility that the GBP/USD pair has. In general, the British currency would likely be a huge investment in the longer-term but the nearing end of the Brexit caused further confusion than clarity. Nevertheless, there are rumors that the longer-term profit will begin to jump into the GBP or even try to win over the optimistic news.

 

This market could probably decline to the 1.2750 region prior seeing some major support. We can see some type of support at the 1.2825 zone but it may take some time before testing such levels. There are forecasts that the sterling could possibly break out to the upside upon gaining some clarity. However, considering the current scenario, it is recommended to deal with some volatility and choppiness.

 

Traders should not also forget to pay attention to the current and overall status of the US dollar because this is highly expected to reflect on this market. As of this moment, the majority are concerned with global trade which placed some demand in American currency.

The sterling pound had a significant rally earlier this week. It further breaks above the 1.2850 region and would probably test the 1.29 zone. A move higher near the 1.30 mark is possible but it might be very choppy throughout the process. Buying in the dips can be reliable except when negative factors or general headlines were released from the UK. It seems that the British currency is undervalued by which different kinds of investment will attempt to arrange a deal with the European Union.

 

Upon having an arrangement, the pound will breakout in value because we can find some certainty in the market. Continuing to buy the dips is not ruled out yet and the 1.2750 mark is expected to the “floor” in the market but it might reverse the whole thing eventually. Market players should anticipate volatile sessions as large money flows in an out. At this moment, there is a higher risk to the move upside rather than down. Moreover, traders might need to deal with occasional pull back and negativity in the market.

The single European currency broke on top of the 1.17 mark which indicates being active again. It seems that the overall market sentiment will keep on improving, which would likely support the euro or negatively affect the US currency because traders are expected to overcome the risk appetite curve to other markets and currencies.

 

The current situation shows the possible testing of the previous highs at the zone 1.18 that serves as the ceiling of the consolidation. A break above that region will pave the way towards a higher level, as the initial target highlighted the 1.20 level. 

 

In case that players will pull back, plenty of support levels below are predicted to keep this market buoyed. We can find support at the levels 1.1650, 1.16 and 1.15, which is expected to be the “floor” of the market. It is suggested to continue buying the dips to play with this market, while traders may become more assertive above the 1.20 region.
