Euro

General overview

The dollar erased some of its losses vs. the euro ahead of J. Yellen’s speech on Wednesday. Moreover, the greenback got support from US consumer price index which coincided with investors’ expectations. The ECB will announce its interest rate decision later the day.

Current situation

The bullish market structure remained in place on Wednesday. The euro completed an upside impulse and retreated from the weekly high at 1.0716. The current rebound should be considered corrective amid profit-taking after the recent rally. The pair returned below 1.0700 in the early trades on Wednesday and stayed around the level during the European trades. The price continued developing well above the moving averages in the 4 hours chart. The 50 and the 100-EMAs maintained their bullish slope while the 200-EMA remained neutral in the same chart. The resistance is at 1.0700, the support comes in at 1.0650.

MACD decreased which indicates the buyers’ positions weakening. RSI oscillator remained within overvalued readings.

Trading recommendations

The EUR/USD pair now seems to be heading towards its immediate support near 1.0650. When we break the level the support 1.0600 comes back into play. However, we believe the euro is to remain supported in the short-term as long as 1.0500 is intact.



Pound

General overview

Concerns regarding hard Brexit keep weighing on the cable. Despite the positive labor market data (Unemployment Rate remained unchanged, Claimant Count Change on the contrary increased) the pound weakened on Wednesday.

Current situation

The pound opened red against the dollar on Wednesday. The cable bounced off the border of the overbought zone and headed lower in the Asian session. Sellers broke the 1.2400 level in the early trades and tested 1.2300 in the European session. However, the 1.2300 handle stopped sellers' advance. After touching the level the price rolled back and hovered above the level ahead of the NY opening. The spot bounced off the 200-EMA in the 4 hours chart. All moving averages kept heading lower in the mentioned timeframe. The resistance lies at 1.2400, the support comes in at 1.2300.

MACD decreased which confirms the strength of sellers. RSI remained within the overbought area.

Trading recommendations

A bearish tone prevailed in the 4 hours chart. We recommend going short with the first target – 1.2200. After consolidation below the first target the GBP/USD may advance to the 1.2100 level.



Yen

General overview

The US dollar took a breath reaching the 7-week lows while investors focused on J.Yellen’s speech.

Current situation

The USD/JPY remained within a downtrend channel on Wednesday. The USD/JPY pair found a solid support at 112.50. The mark rejected the spot upwards giving the US dollar a chance to reverse a minor portion of its losses. After breaking 113.00 in the Asian session the recovery stalled above the level during the European hours. The 4 hours chart showed that the price continued developing well below the moving averages. The 100 EMA crossed the 200-EMA downwards. The 50 and the 100-EMAs kept heading lower while the 200-EMA remained flat. The resistance is highlighted at 113.00, the support comes in at 112.00.

MACD traded to the downside. The RSI left the oversold readings and moved higher.

Trading recommendations

We expect the USD/JPY pair to extend its bullishness in the short-term. Should the US dollar advance beyond the 114.00 level, the spot may extend its rally up to 114.50.



AUD/USD

General overview

The AUD maintained its upbeat tone vs. the US dollar getting support from oil prices dynamics. The upcoming labor market data may support the Australian dollar as well.

Current situation

The tone is still positive in the market. The AUD/USD pair stayed around 2-week highs flirting with the 0.7550 level. The price was confined within a tight trading range around the level tending to move lower. The spot hovered above its moving averages in the 4 hours chart. The 50 and 100-EMAs maintained their bullish slope while the 200-EMA was flat in the mentioned timeframe. The resistance is highlighted at 0.7550, the support comes in at 0.7500.

MACD remained at the same level which confirms the strength of buyers. The RSI consolidated within overvalued territory.

Trading recommendations

We expect a downward correction in the short-term. If we see a close below 0.7550 we will sell the spot. The potential bearish target is the 0.7500 handle.



XAU/USD

General overview

Gold slowed down its rally after reaching 8-week highs amid the US dollar recovery and risk-on sentiment. All eyes were on inflation data and Yellen's speech on Wednesday.

Current situation

Gold prices remained in an ascending channel on Wednesday. After reaching the 4-weeks peaks on Tuesday the metal slightly retreated and approached the lower limit of its upward structure on Wednesday. The XAU/USD pair slightly declined in the Asian session and found some support at 1210 dollars per ounce. Sellers struggled hard to break below the level during the European hours. According to the 1 hour chart the price tested the bullish 50-EMA. The price stayed above its moving averages which maintained their bullish slope in the same chart. The resistance exists at 1220, the support stands at 1210 dollars per ounce.

MACD remained at the same level which confirms the strength of buyers. RSI consolidated within overvalued readings.

Trading recommendations

A clear break below 1210 would indicate that the bearish phase has been resumed. The 1200 handle seems to be the next probable bearish target. Anyway the gold spot is still strong enough to move higher. A break above 1220 risks the 1230 hurdle.



Brent

General overview


Brent declined despite the increased forecast from OPEC for demand for oil in 2017. Oil prices edged lower after OPEC raised its U.S. output forecast for 2017.

Current situation

Sellers took control of the flows on Wednesday. The last upward impetus stalled just above 56.50 dollars per barrel. The benchmark faced a downward rejection and dropped to 55.50 in the NY session on Tuesday. Sellers continued moving the price lower on Wednesday. Bears broke 55.50 dollars per barrel at the European session opening and headed south afterwards. The benchmark tested 54.50 in the mid-European session. The price broke all moving averages downwards in the 4 hours chart. The 100-EMA remained neutral while the 50-EMA pointed lower. The 200-EMA kept heading higher in the same chart. The resistance lies at 55.50, the support comes in at 54.50 dollars per barrel.

MACD indicator was at the centerline. If the histogram returns the negative territory, that will indicate sellers’ growing strength. If MACD enters into the positive area the buyers will take control over the market. The RSI left the neutral area and headed downwards.

Trading recommendations


As we see the market switched its tone to bearish. If the pressure persists sellers will remain in the driver’s seat. After a close below 54.50 we could see the benchmark extending its decline to 53.50 dollars per barrel.



DAX

General overview

European stocks traded mixed on Wednesday as traders are looking for the ECB meeting results on Thursday.

Current situation

The index gapped higher at the daily open and reached 11600 after the jump. The benchmark failed to extend its gains and retreated immediately after the level test. Sellers kept moving DAX downwards during the European hours. The 4 hours chart showed that the price tested the 50-EMA. The benchmark remained between the 50 and the 100-EMAs during the European session. The moving averages kept heading higher in the mentioned timeframe. The resistance exists at 11600, the support stands at 11500.

MACD indicator was at the centerline. If the histogram returns the positive territory, that will indicate buyers’ growing strength. If MACD enters into the negative area the sellers will take control over the market. RSI was within the neutral territory.

Trading recommendations

A move below 11500 would indicate that immediate upward pressure eased. If the DAX index fixates below the current support it may reach the 11400 area in the short term.



S&P500

General overview

Wall Street opened in green as investors digested bank earnings reports awaiting for Janet Yellen's speech later the day.

Current situation

The index opened the day in green. The benchmark was able to grow and posted a daily high at 2268. S&P500 gave up its recent gains afterwards and eased towards 2260 in the European session. The price bounced off the 100-EMA and tested the-50 EMA in the 4 hours chat. The benchmark was between the 50 and the 100-EMAs during the European trades. The 50 and 100 EMAs were flat while the 200-EMAs kept heading higher in the same chart. The resistance is at 2280, the support comes in at 2260.

MACD indicator was at the centerline. If the histogram returns the positive territory, that will indicate buyers’ growing strength. If MACD enters into the negative area the sellers will take control over the market. RSI stayed within the neutral area.

Trading recommendations

If sellers keep control a close below 2260 might force the price to resume its downward trajectory towards the 2240 area.

20.01.2017

Euro

General overview

The ECB left its rates unchanged: the deposit rate remained at -0.4% and the interest one at 0.0%. Moreover, the US dollar strengthened amid upbeat data. The Initial Jobless Claims came in green. Housing Starts showed strong figures as well. Investors’ attention now turns to Trump's inauguration which will take place on Friday.

Current situation

The downward trajectory lost its legs just below 1.0650 when sellers met a solid barrier which rejected the pair upwards. The euro reversed majority of its losses on Thursday. The spot broke 1.0650 ahead of the European session opening and headed towards 1.0700. However, the upward impetus soon faded, the recovery stalled above 1.0650. A fresh selling interest dragged the pair downwards. The spot broke 1.0650 and tested 1.0600 at the US session opening. The EUR/USD pair presented a neutral-to-bullish stance during the European hours. The 4 hours chart showed that the price stayed above the moving averages. The 100-EMA crossed the 200-EMA upwards. The 50 and the 100-EMAs pointed higher while the 200-EMA remained flat in the same chart. The resistance is at 1.0700, the support comes in at 1.0650.

MACD decreased which indicates the buyers’ positions weakening. RSI was within neutral territory.

Trading recommendations

We became bearish regarding the pair now. A break below 1.0650 would increase a negative signal and risk further easing of the EURUSD pair towards 1.0600, en route to 1.0550.



Pound

General overview

Housing Price Balance foe December came in worse than expecting slowing down the pound recovery on Thursday. The pound weakened further vs. the US dollar after the upbeat US data. We expect a number of UK's Retail Sales releases today which are expected with positive figures.

Current situation

The pound strengthened further on Thursday, sending the GBP/USD to its recent highs at 1.2400. The cable was able to reverse some of its losses amid broad dollar's weakness. Having found a local bottom at 1.2250 the spot reversed its direction and rallied upwards breaking 1.2300 in the European session. After passing the level the pair continued moving north targeting at 1.2400. Buying interest faded in the North American session. The price faced the downward rejection and turned lower. The price continued developing well between the 200 and the 100-EMAs in the 4 hours chart. The 50 and the 100-EMAs were neutral while the 200-EMA kept heading lower in the same chart. The resistance lies at 1.2400, the support comes in at 1.2300.

MACD grew which is a buy signal. RSI left the neutral area and entered overvalued territory.

Trading recommendations

The pound remained under the risk of falling deeper down. The 1.2400 hurdle coupled with the 200-EMA limited the pound further advance. A downtrend will start as soon, as the spot drops below the support level 1.2300. Further easing to 1.2200 is not ruled out. A break above 1.2400 will advance the spot to 1.2450.



Yen

General overview

J. Yellen’s remarks coupled with strong data boosted the US dollar demand. The strong labor market data and Housing Starts release supported the greenback on Friday. All eyes are on Trump's inauguration.

Current situation

The pair remained in a short-term downward channel staying around its upper limit on Thursday. Buyers lost their momentum after touching 115.00. The US dollar was in a consolidation phase during the Asian and European sessions. Traders struggled with the hurdle to resume their advance. The level, however, turned out to be a solid obstacle to break. The US dollar got under selling pressure on any up-move towards the level. A fresh bout of buying interest supported the U.S. dollar. The major attacked the 115.00 hurdle with fresh vigour during the NY hours. The price tested the 50-EMA in the 4 hours chart. The 100-EMA crossed the 200-EMA downwards. The 50 and the 100-EMAs maintained their bearish slope while the 200-EMA remained neutral in the mentioned timeframe. The resistance is highlighted at 115.00, the support comes in at 114.00.

MACD grew which indicates the sellers’ positions weakening. The RSI was within overvalued readings close to the neutral territory.

Trading recommendations

We believe that a break through 115.00 will put on hold bears’ plans. The potential buyers’ target is 116.00.



NZD/USD

General overview

New Zealand Business PMI posted positive figures while Building Permits came in red. Moreover, the kiwi as a commodity currency was supported by oil prices positive dynamics. The recent US data weighed on the NZD as well.

Current situation

The Asian recovery lost its steam after testing the level 0.7200. The hurdle appeared to be a tough nut to crack. After touching the level the NZD rolled back in the Asian session and remained below the resistance during the European hours. According to the 4 hours chart the spot hovered above its moving averages on Thursday. The 50 and 100-EMAs kept pointing higher while the 200-EMA was neutral in the mentioned chart. The resistance is highlighted at 0.7200, the support comes in at 0.7150.

MACD decreased which indicates the buyers’ positions weakening. The RSI left the neutral area and headed north.

Trading recommendations

Inability to retake 0.7200 may reverse the market. A sharp breakout below 0.7150 could spark a further easing towards 0.7100 in the coming days.



XAU/USD

General overview

The broad US dollar strengthening weighed on the precious metal. Besides a strong dollar gold prices softened amid the upbeat US data and the ECB decision to keep its rates unchanged.

Current situation

Gold prices remained under pressure on Thursday amid a strong dollar. The pair bounced off the 1200 psychological mark and remained around the handle during the day. The metal continued developing well above its moving averages in the 4 hours chart. The 50 and the 100-EMAs kept heading higher while the 200-EMA was flat in the same chart. The resistance exists at 1210, the support stands at 1200 dollars per ounce.

MACD decreased which indicates the buyers’ positions weakening. RSI stayed within the neutral territory.

Trading recommendations

We prefer to stay bearish for now. We would be selling gold only if the price drops below 1200. A firm break below 1200 handle could trigger fresh weakness for attack at 1190 dollars per ounce.



Brent

General overview

The US oil inventory draw gave a temporally support for oil prices. The market will be focused on Oil Rig Count in the coming sessions.

Current situation

Oil prices remained in red figures after Wednesday's bearish acceleration. Brent a little changed on the day and remained prone to more weakness on Thursday. The benchmark stayed neutral around 54.50 dollars per barrel flirting with the level during the European session. Oil price stayed below the moving averages in the 4 hours chart. The 50-EMA crossed the 200-EMA downwards. The 100-EMA was flat while the 50-EMA headed lower, the 200-EMA maintained its bullish slope in the same chart. The resistance lies at 54.50, the support comes in at 53.50 dollars per barrel.

MACD entered the negative area. If MACD remains in the negative territory, sellers’ positions will strengthen. The RSI indicator was within the oversold readings.

Trading recommendations

Near-term technical studies are in full bearish setup. A daily close below 53.50 dollars per barrel will pave way for further near-term downslide towards the very important 50.00 psychological mark.



DAX

General overview

European bourses edged higher on Thursday after the ECB's decision to leave the rates unchanged. Meanwhile, mining stocks traded mixed while the financial sector shares moved broadly higher. Investors kept digesting Janet Yellen's comments. According to Yellen the Fed may raise the rates quickly this year.

Current situation

The index gapped higher at the daily open. However, the upmove lacked momentum immediately after the jump. The price softened filling the gap in the European session. Sellers broke 11600 and tried to push the price lower during the day. According to the 4 hours chart the index broke the 50-EMA upwards. The benchmark continued developing well above the moving averages afterwards. The moving averages maintained their bullish slope in the mentioned timeframe. The resistance exists at 11600, the support stands at 11500.

MACD indicator was at the centerline. If the histogram returns the positive territory, that will indicate buyers’ growing strength. If MACD enters into the negative area the sellers will take control over the market. RSI stayed within the neutral territory close to the overvalued territory.

Trading recommendations

In order to recover some strength, DAX30 needs to rise above 11600. However, as the most probable scenario, we consider further moving downwards towards the level at 11500.



NASDAQ

General overview

The US stocks opened higher amid the U.S strong data. Investors focused on key companies (IBM and American Express) earnings reports which will report after the bell. However, traders preferred wait and see mode ahead of Donald Trump's inauguration on Friday.

Current situation

The index traded in a tight range on Thursday. The price was sandwiched between 5060 and 5040 during the day. The benchmark started the day at the open limit of the band and moved down to its lower limit during the course of the European trades. The price stayed above the moving averages in the 1 hour chat. The 50-EMA crossed the 100-EMA downwards. The 50-EMA was flat while the 100 and the 200-EMAs kept heading higher in the same chart. The resistance is at 2280, the support comes in at 2260.

Trading recommendations

The market seems fairly balanced. The index feels comfortably in the current range. A clear break of either side is needed to signal fresh direction. Meanwhile we prefer to stay out of trades until we get a clear picture.

26.01.2017

Euro

General overview

The European common currency got under selling pressure in the morning trades on Wednesday amid negative Business Climate release in Germany. A demand for the euro emerged in the European session helping the major to reverse its losses climbing to fresh highs.

Current situation

Bears tried to take control over the market on Wednesday. After a night consolidation sellers made an attempt to move the price lower at the beginning of the European session. The price headed towards 1.0700 first, however, the selling interest faded soon. The pair found fresh bids above 1.0700 and extended its corrective rally on risk-on trades. The common currency rallied and reversed all Tuesday’s losses by the noon. The spot hovered above its moving averages in the 4 hours chart. The 50 and the 100-EMAs maintained their bullish slope while the 200-EMA remained neutral in the same chart. The resistance is at 1.0750, the support comes in at 1.0700.

MACD grew which indicates the buyers’ positions strengthening. RSI stayed within overvalued readings.

Trading recommendations

A bullish tone prevailed in the 4 hours chart. We will place buy orders if the EURAUD does a breakout at the resistance level of 1.0750. The pair might extend its gains towards 1.0800 afterwards. Meanwhile, inability to climb above 1.07500 risks a decline back to 1.0700.



Pound

General overview

The UK Industrial Trends Survey - Orders grew for January providing support for the cable. Investors kept weighing up M.Carney's remarks. The immediate focus now remains on the UK GDP for 4Q. Traders expect a light decline in the GDP.

Current situation

The GBP/USD pair kept its rangebound stance unchanged the first part of Wednesday. The spot traded in a tight range flirting with 1.2500 during the day. A fresh buying impetus boosted the GBP/USD pair to 1.2600 after London's opening. The spot continued developing well above its moving averages in the 4 hours chart. The 50-EMA crossed the 100-EMA upwards. The 50 and the 100-EMAs kept heading higher while the 200-EMA pointed lower in the mentioned timeframe. The resistance lies at 1.2600, the support comes in at 1.2500.

MACD remained at the same level which confirms the strength of buyers. RSI indicator consolidated within overvalued readings favoring a new move higher.

Trading recommendations

Strategically, we preserve bearish outlook and see risks of a move down towards 1.2400 over the coming weeks. Meanwhile, the price maintained its bullish tone in the 4 hours chart. The GBP/USD pair now seems to be heading towards its immediate resistance near 1.2700. However, the spot needs to break the 1.2600 level first to maintain its bullishness.



Yen

General overview

Protectionist rhetoric from the White House kept weighing on the dollar. Exports and Merchandise Trade Balance in Japan showed upbeat data supporting the national currency.

Current situation

USD/JPY remained in bearish trend. Tuesday’s recovery stalled when the price met a barrier at 114.00. Buyers failed to retake the level which rejected the USD/JPY pair downwards. The spot rolled back and stopped a few pips below the hurdle. The pair was confined to a well limited range below 114.00 during the European hours and continued its slide ahead of the NY session opening. The 4 hours chart showed that the price tested the 50-EMA in the early trades. The US dollar failed to reclaim the 50-EMA and bounced off it. The benchmark remained below its moving averages. The 50 and the 100-EMAs kept heading lower while the 200-EMA stayed flat in the mentioned timeframe. The resistance is highlighted at 114.00, the support comes in at 113.00.

MACD grew which indicates the sellers’ positions weakening. The RSI remained within the neutral area.

Trading recommendations

We expect to see renewed bearish pressure in the coming sessions. Sellers may drive the pair to 113.00 first, en route to 112.50.



USD/CAD

General overview

Trump’s plans to revive Keystone XL and Dakota Access oil pipelines weighed on the Canadian dollar. However, the Loonie recovered some ground later the day in the light of weaker oil prices.

Current situation

The US dollar remained rather unchanged against its Canadian peer. After a sharp sell-off sellers took a breath consolidating their gains. The price hovered above 1.3120 in the morning after being rejected in the early Asian trades. A fresh buying interest emerged in the mid-European session pushing the US dollar upwards. An attempt to raise rates failed and a downward pressure returned the spot to 1.3120 in the mid-European session. The CAD broke 100 and 50-EMAs downwards in the 4 hours chart. The USD/CAD pair stayed below the moving averages afterwards. The 100-EMAs kept heading lower while the 50 and the 200-EMAs were neutral in the same chart. The resistance is highlighted at 1.3190, the support comes in at 1.3120.

MACD entered the negative area. If MACD remains in the negative territory, sellers’ positions will strengthen. The RSI consolidated within the oversold readings.

Trading recommendations

The overall outlook remains bearish, for a fall towards 1.3050 support area. However, the USD/CAD is oversold and we do not rule out a minor correction towards 1.32.



XAU/USD

General overview

Uncertainty around Trump’s economic agenda and lack of US data softened the US dollar. Gold took an advantage of weaker dollar and strengthened. Markets now eagerly await the US Housing Price Index report.

Current situation

Gold prices turned negative after the opening. The XAU/USD pair came under some profit-taking pressure on Wednesday. Bears seized control and pushed the price downwards. The metal pushed away from the 1210 dollars per ounce in the Asian session and headed downwards. European traders continued dragging gold futures downwards and reached 1200 in the mid-European session. However, the level limited sellers’ advance rejecting the gold spot. According to the 4 hours chart the price broke the 50-EMA downwards and stayed between the 50 and the 100-EMAs afterwards. The 50 and the 100-EMA pointed higher, while the 200-EMA remained flat. The resistance exists at 1210, the support stands at 1200 dollars per ounce.

MACD indicator was at the centerline. If the histogram enters the negative territory, that will indicate sellers’ growing strength. If MACD returns into the positive area the buyers will take control over the market. RSI left the neutral territory and entered oversold readings.

Trading recommendations

The uptrend is not over yet. The buying interest remains while 1195 pivot holds. We expect gold prices to resume their growth. A break above 1210 will suggest its further strengthening towards 1220 dollars per ounce.



Brent

General overview

Oil prices edged lower ahead of the EIA crude stockpiles report.

Current situation

Traders remained equally divided between bulls and bears on Wednesday. Brent failed to sustain a minor-recovery above 55.50 hurdle and extended losses below the last. The price remained in a tight range during the Asian session. Traders made an attempt to lower the price in the early European session but succeeded in the second one. The price broke its moving averages downwards in the 4 hours chart. The moving averages remained flat in the same chart. The resistance lies at 55.50, the support comes in at 54.50 dollars per barrel.

MACD indicator was at the centerline. If the histogram enters the negative territory, that will indicate sellers’ growing strength. If MACD returns into the positive area the buyers will take control over the market. The RSI remained within neutral area.

Trading recommendations

We suppose the benchmark will go to 54.50 first. Having overcome the first target the price might advance towards 53.50 dollars per barrel.



DAX

General overview

European stocks traded in green on Wednesday. The latest earnings reports supported stocks. The growth was boosted by Logitech and Banco Santander upbeat figures.

Current situation

The index gapped higher at the daily open. The benchmark maintained its bid tone afterwards. Buyers pushed the price through 11700 in the early European trades. DAX extended its rally in the late European hours approaching to 11800. The 4 hours chart showed that the price broke the 100 and 50 EMAs upwards. The benchmark moved away from the moving averages which kept heading higher in the mentioned timeframe. The resistance exists at 11800, the support stands at 11700.

The MACD histogram grew which indicates buyers’ strength. RSI stayed within overvalued readings favoring a new move higher.

Trading recommendations

We prefer to stay bullish for now. If the benchmark stays above 11700 DAX will aim at 11800.



NASDAQ


General overview

Wall Street futures hit record highs on Wednesday. The post-election rally seems to have returned boosted by President Trump's push for pro-growth policies.

Current situation

The index had a positive day on Wednesday. A brief consolidation phase was over by the European trades opening. European traders pushed the price higher which rallied towards 5120. The upward impetus faded about the mark ahead of the NY session opening. NASDAQ continued developing well above its moving averages in the 4 hours chart. The 50, 100 and 200-EMAs accelerated their advance north in the same chart. The resistance is at 5140, the support comes in at 5100.

The MACD histogram grew which indicates buyers’ strength. RSI oscillator stayed near overbought levels, favoring a new move higher.

Trading recommendations

The technical picture presents a bullish tone. A break above 5100 opened the way to the 5140 hurdle.

31.01.2017

Euro

General overview

The euro ignored positive GDP in Spain and softened on Monday. Markets eye the upcoming ECB meeting and Consumer Price Index which is expected in green.

Current situation


The EUR/USD gapped higher at the daily open on Monday. The price jumped from 1.0700 to 1.0740 in the early Asian trades. The dollar's negative tone however, reversed mid Asian session. Bulls failed to extend their gains and stepped back giving the way to sellers. Bears seized control and pushed the spot back to 1.0700 where the spot traded almost unchanged in the mid-European session. A fresh selling interest emerged before NY opening. The EUR/USD pair made a good break lower and reached 1.0650. The price broke the 50-EMA downwards and tested the 100-EMA in the 4 hours chart in the mid-European trades. The 50 and the 100-EMAs kept heading higher while the 200-EMA remained flat in the mentioned timeframe. The resistance is at 1.0700, the .support comes in at 1.0650.

MACD indicator was at the centerline. If the histogram enters the positive territory, that will indicate buyers’ growing strength. If MACD returns into the negative area the sellers will take control over the market. RSI was within the neutral area and moved south.

Trading recommendations


The 1.0750 resistance needs to be retested before the EUR/USD pair might rally towards 1.8000. However, the spot has all chances to turn bearish now. Should the price fixate below 1.0650 the way towards 1.0550 will be opened.



Pound

General overview

There was not much to watch on the UK calendar on Monday. All eyes are on the Bank of England on Wednesday.

Current situation

The GBP/USD gapped higher at the start of the new week. The spot jumped up to 1.2600 where the price met a strong barrier. The major bounced off the hurdle, dropped back towards the opening price сlosing the bullish opening gap. The spot pressured the 1.2500 level in the European session, but failed to retake the handle. The pound hovered above its moving averages in the 4 hours chart. The 100-EMA crossed the 200-EMA upwards. The 50 and the 100-EMAs headed north while the 200-EMA was neutral-bearish in the mentioned timeframe. The resistance lies at 1.2600, the support comes in at 1.2500.

MACD decreased which indicates the buyers’ positions weakening. RSI indicator left the overvalued readings and headed south.

Trading recommendations

The technical picture favors the downside. Should the 1.2500 level break down it will determine further direction of the GBPUSD pair towards 1.2400.



Yen

General overview

The US treasury bonds growth helped the US dollar to reverse some losses. Besides, weak Retail Trades in Japan weakened the national currency.

Euro

Bears unexpectedly returned control on Monday. The EUR/USD pair pushed away from 1.2000 and dropped to the 1.1920 area where the major spent the night and continued its sell-off in the morning. The pressure to the downside is likely to persist. We are waiting for a break below 1.1920 and a move towards 1.1900 now.


Pound

The US dollar recovery influenced the GBP/USD pair as well. The pair touched the 1.3600 level and pulled back after that. Sellers dragged the pound to the 1.3550 level afterwards where the major spent the night. A follow-through selling pressure has the potential to continue dragging the pair further towards 1.3500.


Yen

The USD/JPY pair extended its rebound from 109.30 on Monday. Buyers reclaimed the 109.50 level and pushed the US dollar to the 109.60 area afterwards. A fresh buying impetus emerged in the morning and sent the major through 109.80 to 109.90. After breaking through the 109.80 resistance, the pair will most likely move up to around the 110.00 mark.



Gold

Sellers unexpectedly returned on Monday and sent gold prices below 1320. They led the spot to 1315 first and then extended sell-off down to the 1313 area. The market sentiment is likely to remain negative today. In this potential scenario the yellow metal will decline to 1310 in the short-term.



Brent

The positive bias persisted on Monday. A fresh buying interest boosted the Brent oil prices to fresh multi-years highs. Buyers regained the 77.50 level first and then moved the benchmark to the 78.50 hurdle. If a price breaks above this region, then this could lead to renewed buying momentum, possibly towards 79.50.

Euro

The euro extended its sell-off and hit the low at 1.1820 yesterday. The major faced buying rejection at the level and bounced back afterwards. The single currency may extend its recovery and visit the level 1.1850 today.



Pound

The downward pressure increased on Tuesday. The pound extended its losses when the major dropped below 1.3500. Sellers drove the major to 1.3450 after that where they lost momentum and buyers started a recovery phase. The major bounced to 1.3500 and may extend its gains and probe the 1.3530 area later the day.



Yen

The positive bias prevailed on Tuesday. Buyers managed to lead the USD/JPY pair from the 109.65 to the 110.40. The buying momentum eased over there. AS a result, the spot bounced off the border of the overbought zone and softened to the 110.00 handle. The overall sentiment is still bullish. We will wait the correction is over and will start buying the US dollar again.



Gold

The yellow metal got under pressure and dropped from 1315 to the 1290 area. Buyers are trying to build a correction since then and managed to push the spot to the 1295 area by now. The yellow metal may extend its recovery and reach 1300 today.



Brent

Brent oil prices remained in the upward channel. Buyers almost reached 79.50 when they lost control on Tuesday. As a result, the benchmark fell to the lower end of the ascending channel. Sellers led the price to the 77.50 where Brent found fresh bids and pulled back to the 78.50 hurdle. We are waiting for the Brent oil prices to revisit the 79.50 resistance in the coming sessions.
