While break of 1.1510-1.1500 dragged the EURUSD to thirteen-month low, the 200-week SMA, at 1.1355 now, is likely offering an intermediate halt to the pair’s south-run towards the 1.1300-1.1280 horizontal-region. In case the quote refrains to respect the 1.1280 rest-point, the 1.1210 and the 1.1120 might entertain the sellers. Alternatively, the 1.1440-50 may restrict the pair’s immediate advances before highlighting the 1.1500-1.1510 support-turned-resistance. Given the buyers’ ability to surpass 1.1510 barrier, the 1.1565-70 and the 1. ...
Notwithstanding the break of six-week long symmetrical triangle support, EURUSD pulled itself back from 1.1530 rest-point to confront the support-turned-resistance, at 1.1615 now. If the pair manage to post a daily closing beyond 1.1615, the 1.1645 and the 50-day SMA level of 1.1670 can try challenging the buyers, failing to which could propel prices towards the descending trend-line figure of 1.1730. In case the pair refrains to surpass the 1.1615 hurdle, the BPC (Break-Pullback-Continuation) pattern may reprint 1.1530 on the chart but the 1.1510-1. ...
Monday starts with a setup that was frequently mentioned by us on our Trading Sniper videos that we post here daily – CHFJPY. What we are having here is a double top pattern, formed on the super important horizontal resistance on the 112.80 (red).
Having reversed from 1.1620, the EURUSD crossed the seven-week-old descending trend-line, around 1.1735-40 now, that favors the pair’s further advances in the direction to the 1.1790 and the 1.1810 resistances. Alike EURUSD, the GBPUSD’s up-moves are likely to be questioned by short-term symmetrical triangle resistance, at 1.3180, breaking which the 1.3215-20 and the 1.3290 may mark their presence on the chart. Bank of Japan’s failure to comply with speculations for its monetary policy tightening activated the USDJPY’s U-turn from two-month long ascending trend-line, which in-turn favors brighter chances of the pair’s recovery to 111.90 and then to the 112.15-20 horizontal-region.
First one is the USDJPY, where we do have an inverse head and shoulders formation and the breakout of the neckline. Broken up trendline was tested as a resistance and price made a shooting star on the daily chart. Now, most probably, we are going to test this area as the closest resistance.
Unless breaking seven-week old ascending trend-line, at 0.9890 now, the USDCHF is less likely to extend its recent pullback towards 0.9850 and the 0.9820 support-levels. Alike USDCHF, the EURCHF’s downside is also capped by the immediate support, herein it is the 1.1595-85 zone, that may trigger the pair’s U-turn towards nearby TL resistance figure of 1.1615. GBPCHF’s recovery from nine-month old ascending trend-line may support the pair to aim for the 1.3125 and the 50-day SMA level of 1.3165 but a downward slanting TL stretched since April can confine its further upside around 1.3210.
Silver started this week with a breakout of the lower line of the wedge, which in theory, gave us a strong sell signal. Buyers try to deny that today and they initiate a reversal, which potentially can create us a right shoulder of the inverse head and shoulders formation. On the weekly chart, we do have a shooting star bouncing from the horizontal resistance.
Should prices manage to defy the triangle pattern by conquering 1.1770 resistance, the 1.1835-40 horizontal-region may gain buyers’ attention. GBPUSD is another major which recently bounced off the support and is currently rising to confront near-term important resistance. Herein, the 1.3090-1.3100 is crucial support whereas two-month old descending trend-line at 1.3310 acts as resistance.
One of the most technical setups can be seen on the USDCHF, where Friday ended with a bearish shooting star pattern. The place, where this pattern is present is not random as it is a long-term horizontal resistance (orange). In the smaller time frames, that shooting star is additionally shaped like the head and shoulders formation, which strengtheners the sell signal.
The U.S. dollar strengthens against most of its major rivals Wednesday following fresh consternation over President Donald Trump’s clashes with major trading partners and allies across the globe.
Correction on the Gold was not the deepest on the record. Price managed to use the weekly hammer for an upswing but it was not spectacular. Yesterday’s candle is a shooting star and price came back below the 1260 USD/oz support and broke the lower line of the wedge. Those signs are bearish.
Investors worried that a global recession is forthcoming should ditch emerging market currencies and stock up on the Swiss franc, Singapore dollar, U.S. dollar and Japanese yen, according to JPMorgan Chase & Co. ( JPM). In a research note, reported on by Bloomberg, analysts at the bank responded to these warnings by examining historical trends over the past five recessions to determine which currencies are best to own when economic activity declines significantly.
While receding political pressure at Germany helped the EURUSD witness its latest recovery, short-term symmetrical-triangle is likely to confine the pair’s immediate moves. As a result, the 1.1680 can become adjacent resistance for traders to watch, breaking which the 1.1725 may offer intermediate halt prior to fueling the quote towards two-month old descending TL, at 1.1775. In case if the pair continue rising after 1.1775, the 1.1825 and the 1.1850-55 horizontal-region could entertain the Bulls. On the contrary, the 1. ...
The U.S. dollar and the euro switched places as market favorites in the first half of 2018, leaving investors wondering which currency will come out on top by year-end as they grapple with global trade tensions and a Federal Reserve that’s leaving other central banks behind.
Swiss Finance Minister Ueli Maurer said the Swiss franc-euro exchange rate has normalised and is not a problem for Switzerland, during a trip to Austria on Friday. The safe-haven Swiss franc weakened to the symbolic level of 1.20 versus the euro earlier this year before strengthening again in recent weeks to trade at around 1.155. A strong currency makes life difficult for Switzerland's export-reliant economy.
The Trump administration announced it would take a softer stance toward Chinese investment than previously reported. New orders for key U.S.-made capital goods and shipments unexpectedly fell in May, but data for the prior month was revised higher. The Commerce Department also reported that the goods trade deficit declined 3.7 percent to $64.8 billion in May as an increase in exports outpaced a rise in imports. The government department also said wholesale inventories increased 0.5 percent in May and stocks at retailers gained 0.4 percent.
Should the pair drop beneath the 1.1640, the 1.1590 and the 1.1510-1.1500 are crucial levels for traders to watch as break of which can drag prices to 61.8% FE level of 1.1415. Given the pair’s ability to surpass the 1.1845 barrier, chances of its rally to 1.1910 & 1.1940 can’t be denied. In addition to the USDJPY’s inability to offer a daily closing below three-month old ascending trend-line, the 50-day SMA level also seems working as a strong support at present, which in-turn favors the pair’s U-turn in direction to the 109.85 and the 110.30 resistances.
The Swiss National Bank's huge balance sheet is no impediment to continued intervention in foreign exchange markets to weaken the Swiss franc, SNB chairman Thomas Jordan said on Thursday. "We have no limits and if it is necessary to keep growing our balance sheet, to intervene in the markets to maintain monetary conditions, the SNB can and has to continue to grow its balance sheet," he said at a news conference accompanying the central bank's latest rate decision.
U.S. West Texas Intermediate and international-benchmark Brent crude oil futures closed lower on Tuesday as investors continued to express concerns over a possible increase in OPEC crude supply. Also pressuring prices were the escalating trade dispute between the United States and China.
In case if the pair continue trading southwards after 1.1440, the 1.1370, the 1.1330 and the 1.1300 may please the Bears. Assuming that the pair reverses from current levels, the 1.1650 and the 1.1730 can act as immediate resistances before highlighting the 1.1835-50 area for one more time. Alike EURUSD, the NZDUSD is also near to important support-zone, namely the 0.6885-80, but break of which might not trigger the pair’s plunge as an upward slanting trend-line, at 0.6860 now, could still challenge the sellers.
Break of nearly a month-old descending trend-channel signals the USDCHF’s upside towards 0.9900 and the 0.9930-35, if it manages to sustain the breakout, but the 0.9955-60 horizontal-area might confine the pair’s further recovery. In case the quote successfully clears the 0.9960 barrier, the 1.0000 round-figure and the 1.0055 are likely intermediate hurdles that needs to be surpassed in order to meet the 61.8% FE level of 1.0110. On the contrary, pair’s drop below resistance-turned-support figure of 0.9860 can reprint 0.9830 and the 0.9800 mark before taking rest around the ...
For the FX traders, today is all about the FED and all the events surrounding this institution like the rate decision, statement and economic projections. USDCAD is attacking the upper line of the ascending triangle pattern. H4 candle closing above the horizontal resistance will give us a mid-term buy signal.
Even after bouncing off the 1.1510, the EURUSD has multiple resistances to clear in order to justify its strength. The first one will be six-week old descending trend-line figure of 1.1725, followed by the 1.1745-50 horizontal-region and the 1.1830-35 resistance-area. If prices manage to surpass 1.1835, the 1.1900 and the 1.1940 may mark their presence on the chart. Alternatively, the 1.1645-40 can offer immediate support to the pair, breaking which it can drop to 1.1580 and then to the 1.1510. Assuming sellers’ ability to drag the quote beneath 1. ...
Even if immediate descending trend-line restricts the USDCHF’s near-term upside, the pair is yet to conquer more than three-month old upward slanting TL, at 0.9855 now, in order to stretch its latest pullback towards 0.9810 and then to the 0.9785, comprising 50-day SMA. Given the seller’s refrain to respect the 0.9785 mark, the 0.9720 and the 200-day SMA level of 0.9700 can appear on the chart. Should the 0.9855 trend-line number triggers the pair’s U-turn, the 0.9900, the 0.9930 and the 0.9955 are likely adjacent resistances that can be aimed while being long but the 0. ...
