AUD/USD: general analysis

Current trend
All this week the driver for pair’s motion was US dollar. Today is the first Friday of the month, which means that at the beginning of the American session Non-Farm Payrolls will be released. Statistics promise to be positive, which will put pressure on the pair AUD/USD.

From the technical point of view, the pair broke out of long-term downtrend channel last week. Let us consider two basic scenarios. The first is a continuation of the trend down, which is plausible in light of the strengthening of the dollar in recent years. The second scenario will happen if the breakout is the false one and it only serves to close the stop-loss order of players who trades up. It is not difficult to guess that most of the "bull" stops are in a range between the levels of 0.7309 and 0.7132, so the downward movement may continue to these levels.

Support and resistance

Resistance levels: 0.7837 (annual maximum), 0.7779 (monthly and weekly maximum), 07600, 0.7545, 0.7489, 0.7420.
Support levels: 0.7309, 0.7132 (the level of accumulation of stop-losses).

Trading tips
The reasons for the global downward trend of the Australian currency are still in force, so be careful when working in the "bull" corrections. Buy the pair from the level of 0.7420 with the targets at 0.7489, 0.7545 and 0.7600 and stop loss at 0.7370.
If the alternative scenario develops, the pending orders to buy can be set at the level of 0.7309 with the target at 0.7132 and stop loss at 0.7360.

AUD/USD: general analysis

Current trend

Tonight a number of macroeconomic data from Japan and China, major trading partners of Australia, was released, as well as data on the trade balance, exports and imports of Australia. Statistics proved to be worse than expected, but this has not led to significant changes in the movement of the pair, which is being corrected now upward after the recent fall. Correction is due to decrease of the US dollar amid supersaturated expectations on raising interest rates. Today, it is worth paying attention to the US unemployment data. The release is expected to be positive and can put pressure on the pair.

Support and resistance


Resistance levels: 0.7837 (annual maximum), 0.7779 (month and week high), 0.7600, 0.7545, 0.7489.
Support levels: 0.7309, 0.7143, 0.7420.

Trading tips

Long positions can be opened from the level of 0.7489, stop loss 0.7430, target 0.7600 and then 0.7779.
Sell orders should be placed at the bottom border of the channel (0.7450), stop loss 0.7510, the goal of 0.7309.

Brent: the market remains optimistic

Current trend

The trading week started with a strong oil prices growth, the Brent listings reached the maximum from the July, 2015, rising above the level of 57.00. The OPEC and 11 non-OPEC countries have come to the agreement of the oil producing limitation by 558K barrels per day, and this supported the price greatly. The oil Minister of Saudi Arabia declared the possibility of further limitations unilaterally. This brought some optimism on the market, and the middle term targets increased. Today the level of 65 dollar per barrel is the strong support level.

The market is favorable for the “bulls” now. If all the participants follow the agreement fully, the world extracted oil resources will reduce by 46%, which will make the price to grow. On the other hand, the countries have violated such rules many times. In addition, the USA can prevent the oil prices from growing, as they can increase the production of the shale oil, reopening the wells, declared as unprofitable. So the traders are waiting for the realization of the agreement, remains optimistic.

Support and resistance

The price was corrected to the level of 55.24 and now is trying to grow. In case of the breakup at 56.46 the nearest targets will be at 57.10 (December maximum), 58.00 and 58.80. The indicators show the possibility of the growth, too. The price is moving within the upper border of the Bollinger Bands, which is pointed upwards and shows the upward trend, too. The Stochastic is reversing upward, the MACD histogram is growing in the positive area. The continuing of the downward correction to the level of 53.50 (Fibonacci correction 23.6%) and 51.50 (Fibonacci correction 38.2%) is less possible, as the price should consolidate below the 54.80 to develop it.

Support levels: 54.80, 53.50, 51.50.
Resistance levels: 56.45, 57.10, 58.00, 58.80, 60.00.

Trading scenario

Open long positions when the price is set above 56.45 with the target at 57.10, 58.00 and 58.80. Stop loss is at 55.90. Open short positions below 54.80 with the target at 53.50, 51.50 and stop loss at 55.40.

GBP/USD: general analysis

Current trend

During the last week trading sessions the pair has lost about 110 points due to the strengthening of the USD. As expected, the regulator has increased the key interest rate from 0.50% to 0.75%, adding than the next rate rise can happen in the first half of the next year. On Thursday, December, 15, the Bank of England has decided to keep the interest rate on the same level of 0.25%. The Head of the regulator, Mark Carney has commented the decision carefully and avoided any specificity. However, he said that the inflation stays within expected range, and there are no conditions to its growth.

Concerning the “hawk” rhetoric of the USA FRS and tough negotiations between UK and the EU upon the Brexit, the pair will decrease in the long term.

Support and resistance

On the 4-hour chart the pair is trading in the bottom area of the Bollinger Bands. The indicator is pointed downwards, as the price range is wide, so the current trend will continue. The MACD is in negative zone and doesn’t give a clear signal. The Stochastic is ready to leave the overbought area, forming a strong sell signal.

USD/JPY: pause before growth resumes

Current trend

The American Dollar continues consolidating against the Yen after a significant growth in November and the beginning of December. The Dollar fell due to profit fixation and the pair continues moving within the range of 80 points amid the lack of important fundamental news from the US or Japan. However, the Yen was slightly supported by yesterday’s decision on interest rates. The Bank of Japan left the rate unchanged, and in commentaries expressed some optimism noting a gradual economic recovery.

Today extra attention needs to be paid to macroeconomic statistics from the US that could determine further pair’s dynamics. Data on the GDP, labour market and Durable Goods Orders is due.

Support and resistance

In the short-term, the price might fall to the lower border of the ascending channel at the level of 117.15 from where its growth will resume.
Technical indicators suggest a growth continuation. Bollinger bands are directed up while the upper line is at the level of 119.00, indicating the next possible target. MACD histogram is about to resume its growth in the positive zone.

Resistance levels: 118.00, 118.25, 118.65, 119.00, 119.35, 120.05.

Trading tips

Current trend

During the trading session on Thursday, December, 29, the USD was lowering against the yen, reaching the new local minimum from the 14 of December and then renewed it during the morning session on the 30 of December. The “bearish” dynamics is due to the correctional moods before the New Year holydays. The investors usually close the most of positions in this time of the year, in addition, the dollar is greatly overbought against the yen as a result of the November growth. The USD index has reached the highest level from the 2002 year.

Also, the macroeconomical data in USA has affected the trading sessions on Thursday. The weekly Initial Jobless Claims index has lowered from 275K to 265K, which is by 1K worth than expected value. On the contrary, the Continuing Jobless Claims index has grown from 2.039 million to 2.102 million, while the analysts expected the lowering to 2.030 million.

Support and resistance

Resistance levels: 116.54 (actively testing during the morning session 30 December), 117.00, 117.58, 118.00, 118.24 (maximum on December, 20), 118.66 (maximum on December, 15) and 119.06 (the level of the February, 3, 2016).
Support levels: 116.04 (current local minimum, renewed during the morning session on December, 30), 115.61, 115.00 (the level on December, 14), 114.40 (maximum on December, 7), 114.00, 113.50, 113.00 (the level on December, 5) and 112.60.
On the daily chart the Bollinger Bands indicator is growing. The price range is rapidly narrowing, reflecting the appearance of the correctional dynamics. Stick to the channel trade strategy until the situation is clear.

The MACD is lowering, keeping rather strong sell signal (the histogram is below the signal line). Keep the short positions in the short term and do not open new positions.

The Stochastic has reached the overbought area, was corrected and reversed sideways. It’s better to wait for the clear signal.

Trading scenario

XAU/USD: general analysis

Current trend
During the second half of 2016 the price of gold continued to steadily decline due to a stronger US dollar. Currently, however, the pair has already finished the movements triggered by Brexit and raised interest rates of the Fed. At the moment, there is concern on the market about the presidency of Donald Trump. In the near future he will have to convince the US Congress to allocate a large sum for the implementation of economic programs, and his new cabinet still has to go through the approval process in the Senate hearings. In this situation, these processes are likely to be long and exhausting, which may have a prolonged negative impact on the US currency, and strengthen the positions of precious metals.

The current week is replete with important economic releases from the US. Today in the afternoon in the United States data on the index of gradual acceleration of inflation and the index of business activity in the manufacturing sector from the ISM will be published. Projected growth of both indices will reflect the positive sentiment in the business environment and will contribute to the strengthening of the dollar.

Support and resistance
On the daily chart the pair is trading around strong support level of 1148.50. The indicator "Bollinger Bands" is directed downwards, whereas the price range is narrowing, which indicates the probability of a change of the current trend. Histogram of MACD is in the negative zone, its volumes are growing, keeping a weak buy signal. Stochastic has turned down at the border of the overbought area.
Support levels: 1118.88, 1128.28, 1141.69, 1146.39.
Resistance levels: 1159.14, 1172.55, 1180.60, 1188.65.

Trading tips
Short positions should be opened at the level of 1146.00 with the target at 1132.00 and a stop loss at the level of 1153.00. Implementation period: 1-2 days.
Long positions can be set at the level of 1151.70 with Take Profit at 1166.50 and a stop loss order at the level of 1143.50. Implementation period: 1-2 days.

Today markets are waiting for the publication of the Weekly Crude Oil Stock by the American Petroleum Institute, due at 11:30 pm (GMT+2).

USD/JPY: general review

Current trend

The pair sharply fell yesterday after the release of the FOMC Minutes from the last meeting of the regulator in December. The Minutes showed that the officials are concerned with falling unemployment in the US that in the near future might result in higher inflation. However, it was noted that due to uncertainties regarding Donald Trump’s fiscal policy plans, the pace of further monetary policy tightening is hard to forecast. At present, the Fed is predicting 3 rate hikes in 2017.

Additionally, the Dollar remains under pressure prior to the publication of data on the US labour market, due tomorrow. Strong reading on the Nonfarm Payrolls could provide support to the American currency.

Support and resistance

The pair turned down having failed its 38.2% Fibonacci fan line. Both the RSI and Composite are showing Bearish patterns suggesting the fall could continue.
Support levels: 115.95 (local lows), 114.89 (March 2016 highs), 114.42 (November 2016 highs).
Resistance levels: 118.60 (local highs), 120.29 (July 2015 lows), 121.33 (January 2016 highs).

Trading tips

Short positions can be opened from the level of 115.95 with targets at 114.89, 114.42 and stop-loss at 116.30.
Long positions can be opened from the level of 118.60 with targets at 120.29, 121.33 and stop-loss at 118.17.

GBP/USD: general review

Current trend

The pair significantly grew yesterday amid a substantial weakening in the US Dollar that remains under pressure after the publication of the FOMC Minutes in the middle of the week. The Minutes, despite been quite hawkish, showed that further path of monetary policy tightening in the US is uncertain as the effect to the economy of the promised fiscal stimulus by Donald Trump is unknown yet. The market seems to agree with the regulator about high level of uncertainty, as the Dollar continues falling despite strong statistics that keep coming out in the US.

Additional support to the Pound came from strong data on the Markit Services PMI. In December, the index rose from 55.2 to 56.2 points, well above forecasts.
Today attention needs to be paid to data on the Nonfarm Payrolls in the US.

Support and resistance

On the 4-hour chart, the pair turned down having failed its long-term SMA200, a breakout of which could lead to a growth continuation. However, the Composite has formed a divergence with the RSI and price, suggesting a decline possibility.
Support levels: 1.2322 (local lows), 1.2297 (November 2016 lows), 1.2206 (local lows).
Resistance levels: 1.2433 (local highs), 1.2505 (local highs), 1.2542 (local highs).

Short positions can be opened from the level of 1.2297 with the target at 1.2206 and stop-loss at 1.2322. Validity – 1-2 days.

Brent: oil prices fell

Current trend

The price of Brent crude oil fell at the beginning of the week amid growing concerns that the OPEC countries are going to carry out their agreement to cut the production.

According to the experts, in the first days of January the Iraqi exports going through the port of Basra were the highest in the last 4 years. In addition, oil reserves in Iran’s floating storages significantly fell. In September 2016, their levels halved that indicates an increase in the country’s exports activities.
Oil prices were also pressured by data on the number of oilrigs in the US. For the week ending on 30 December, their number rose by 4 to 529 rigs, reaching the highest level since December 2015. The number of rigs in the US has been growing for the 10th consecutive week.

Current trend

The Japan Composite Index of Leading Indicators was growing to 102.7 points, exceeding the expectations by 0.1 points, which is good for the economy in the short term.

USD/CHF: Fibonacci analysis

The downward trend will continue.

On the 4-hour chart the price has tested the level of 1.0070. The breakout here is possible, as the Bollinger Bands are pointed downwards. Also, the Stochastic has reversed in the same direction, and in this case the significant lowering of the price is possible. In case of the rebound from the level of 1.0070 the correction is possible to the level of 1.0125 (correction cluster 23.6% in the short and middle term) and further to 1.0160 (correction 38.2%) and 1.0190 (correction 50.0%, the middle line of the Bollinger Bands for D1).

On the daily chart there is a downward breakout of the level 1.0120 (correction 23.6%) and the upward fan line 38.2%, and now is reaching the level of 1.0010 (correction 38.2%) and further across the 50.0% fan line to the level of 0.9920 (correction 50.0%) into the area of the crossing with the 61.8% fan line or the curve 38.2%. If the price will reverse at the level of 1.0010 or in case of the upward breakout of the level of 1.0120 the growth is possible to reappear. In this case the correction can continue to the level of 1.0200 (the middle line of the Bollinger Bands) and 1.0300 (correction 0.0%).

Trading scenario

Sell the pair below the level of 1.0070 with the target at 1.0010, 0.9920 and stop loss at 1.0110.

Alternative scenario

Buy the pair above the level of 1.0120 or in case of the reversal at 1.0000 with the target at 1.0200 and 1.0300. Stop loss is at 1.0080 and 0.9970 correspondingly.

EUR/GBP: Fibonacci analysis

Possibility of fall continuation.

On the 4-hour chart, the price fell below the level of 0.8718 (23.6% correction) and after a breakdown of the 38.2% fan line (which seems likely as Stochastic is directed down), the fall could continue towards 0.8650 (38.2% corrections for the medium-term and short-term trends) and 0.8590 (50% correction). However, the ascending fan could be an additional obstacle to the price, so in the region of 0.8650 the price might reverse and start growing towards its January highs.
On the daily chart, the price is heading towards the level of 0.8650 (38.2% correction), a breakdown of which would lead to a fall continuation towards 0.8580 (lower line of Bollinger Bands), 0.8545 (23.6% correction). However, there is also a chance of a price reverse and growth towards the levels of 0.8742 (50% correction) and 0.8830 (61.8% correction), but this scenario seems unlikely (Stochastic turned down).

Main scenario

Sell the pair below the level of 0.8650 with targets at 0.8580, 0.8545 and stop-loss at 0.8690.

Alternative scenario

Buy the pair after the price rebound from the level of 0.8650 with targets at 0.8742, 0.8830 and stop-loss at 0.8620.

USD/JPY: general analysis

Current trend

During the yesterday trading session the USD continued to fall against all the main currencies, including Yen. Investors are fixing the profit on the dollar assets. After the great growth due to the positive expectation of the new President policy the traders want to see the confirmation of the Trump’s intentions to reform the economy. Yesterday the USA FRS members’ commentaries supported the USD and helped it not to fall further. The FRS members said that the USA economy has almost reached the target level of the inflation and now is almost involved. Yesterday Trump’s commentaries of the “too strong” dollar and its bad affection on the USA economy pressed the USD. The USD/JPY pair has decreased to the level of 112.56, but today on the opening session the price was corrected upwards. Today the USA Consumer Price Index (15:30 GMT+2), the Industrial Production data (16:15 GMT+2), Fed's Beige Book review (21:00 GMT+2) and Janet Yellen Speech (22:00 GMT+2) are worth traders attention.

Support levels: 113.00, 112.56, 112.00.
Resistance levels: 113.50, 114.00, 114.47.

Trading scenario

On the 4-hour chart Bollinger Bands are pointed downwards, reflecting the development of the downward trend. Still the correction into the area of the middle line of the Bollinger Bands (113.86) is possible. The reversal from the level of 113.86 and the downward movement is possible.

The MACD histogram is in the negative zone, its volumes are decreasing, reflecting the development of the correction. In case of the consolidation of the price above the level of 114.00 the formation of the upward trend is possible.

GBP/USD: the pair has a limited growth potential

Current trend
On Wednesday, the pair was corrected from the level of 1.2400 to the 1.2250 level. Today, the pair once again resumed its growth, which can reach the levels of 1.2380 (Fibonacci correction 50.0%) and 1.2470 (Fibonacci correction 61.8%). However, in the long term position of the pound is evaluated negatively. The head of the IMF, Christine Lagarde, in an interview with BBC said that the British economy will be under further pressure, because the new free trade agreement with the EU, which the UK intends to achieve, in any case, would give the country fewer trade opportunities than if it remained a member of the European Union. Goldman Sachs experts believe that the process of negotiations on a new agreement can take a long time and may take more time than the "Brexit" itself.

Support and resistance levels
The pair has a potential to grow up to the levels of 1.2380 and 1.2470, as confirmed by the Stochastics, turning upwards. However, long-term negative factors could lead to a reversal of the price at the level of 1.2380, then to the breakdown of the level of 1.2290 (Fibonacci correction 38.2%) and to a further decrease to the levels of 1.2180 (23.6% correction) and 1.2120.
Support levels: 1.2290, 1.2180, 1.2120.
Resistance levels: 1.2380, 1.2470.

Trading tips
In this situation, the short-term long positions can be opened at the level of 1.2340 with the targets at 1.2380 and 1.2470. Stop loss orders can be set in the area of 1.2310. Short positions can be opened at the level of 1.2380 or in case of breakdown of the level of 1.2290 with the targets at 1.2180, 1.2120 and stop losses at 1.2420, 1.2330, respectively.
