USD/JPY: pair declined
 
Current trend

Last week, the Japanese Yen gained support when the Bank of Japan decided to keep monetary policy unchanged. BoJ Governor gave a generally favorable outlook of the country’s economy.
At present, the USD/ JPY pair still tends to continue declining.
However, Japan is undergoing a period of a weak growth in Industrial Production, Services PMI and a decline in exports. Moreover, inflation will remain low in the medium term. Thus, BoJ might have to consider further changes to monetary policy.
 
Support and resistance

A decline in the pair has stopped at the support level of 120.55 (EMA200 on the daily chart and 61.8% Fibonacci) which is also the lower border of an ascending channel on the daily chart. While the price remains above this level, it tends to grow in the medium term.
The breakout of the resistance levels of 121.35, 121.50 (50.0% Fibonacci), 122.00 (EMA200 and EMA144 on the 4-hour chart), 122.50 (38.2% Fibonacci) would allow the price to strengthen to 123.70 (23.6% Fibonacci), 124.50 and 125.00 (upper border of the ascending channel on the daily chart).
On the 4-hour, daily and weekly charts, OsMA histogram is near the zero line. Amid a decline in trading activity due to the upcoming holidays, the pair is likely to remain near the level of 121.00.
Support levels: 120.55, 120.00, 118.85.
Resistance levels: 121.35, 121.50, 122.00, 122.50, 123.00, 123.70.
 
Trading tips

Long positions can be opened from the level of 121.60 with targets at 121.90, 122.00, 122.50, 123.00, 123.50, 123.70, 124.00, 124.50, 125.00 and stop-loss at 121.20.
Short positions can be opened from the level of 120.35 with targets at 120.00, 118.85, 118.00 and stop-loss at 120.75.

AUD/USD: growth in oil prices supported AUD
 
Current trend

Yesterday, after the Energy Information Administration reported a fall in US crude inventories, the price of oil grew by 3.8%.
Since opening of the trading day, the AUD/USD pair has been strengthening amid a growth in commodity prices. The Australian Dollar gained support as Australia is a large exporter of commodities.
However, in the medium term, the pair tends to continue declining due to different approaches to monetary policy of the Fed and RBA.
Today, attention needs to be paid to Initial Jobless Claims data, due in the US. If the indicator comes in below the forecast, the pair might get another impulse for growth.
 
Support and resistance

On the 4-hour and daily charts, OsMA and Stochastic recommend long positions.
The nearest resistance level is 0.7290. If this level is broken out, a growth to 0.7325 (EMA144 on the daily chart) will be possible.
If the price declines below the level of 0.7210, it might move further down to 0.7100 (lower border of an ascending correctional channel on the daily chart).
Support levels: 0.7210, 0.7100, 0.7030, 0.6980, 0.6910.
Resistance levels: 0.7290, 0.7325, 0.7400, 0.7450, 0.7510.
 
Trading tips

Short positions can be opened from the level of 0.7220 with targets at 0.7110, 0.7090, 0.7030, 0.6980, 0.6910 and stop-loss at 0.7250.

USD/JPY: general analysis
 
Current trend
The Japanese Yen continues strengthening against the US Dollar amid the publication of BoJ economic report.
Initial Jobless Claims statistics are due today in the US. Analysts expect the indicator to be down by 1K to 270K. Such dynamics suggests strong labor market conditions and might support the US Dollar.

Support and resistance
On the daily chart, the pair is trading near the lower MA of Bollinger Bands. The price remains below the MA50, MA100 and MA144, directed parallel and horizontally. MACD histogram is in the negative zone, its volumes are growing; thus, negative dynamics in the pair is likely to develop.

XAG/USD: pair corrected
 
Current trend
Last week the pair slightly strengthened amid closing of short positions by traders prior to Christmas holidays.
In addition, gold and silver prices were supported by growing oil prices that managed to strengthen after the publication of oil reserves data in the US. The data showed that reserves fell by 5.88 million barrels, while experts predicted a 1.5 million barrels growth.
At the same time, the market attention shifts to fresh macroeconomic statistics that are coming out in the US and which could help to determine future changes in monetary policy.
 
Support and resistance
Bollinger Bands on the daily chart is moving horizontally while the price range remains unchanged. MACD is growing and giving a weak buy signal. Stochastic is in the overbought zone and trying to turn down.
The indicators recommend waiting for clearer trading signals.
Support levels: 14.30 (local low), 14.20, 14.00, 13.90, 13.82, 13.63 (14 December low).
Resistance levels: 14.48 (local high), 14.63 (7 December high), 14.77, 15.00 (beginning of November high), 15.15, 15.25.

AUD/USD: pair strengthened
 
Current trend
Last week the pair strengthened by 100 points amid some weakening in the USD.
Tomorrow data on the Producer Price Index for the fourth quarter is due in Australia. Considering strong decline in oil prices during the last quarter that dragged down all commodities’ prices, the index is unlikely to show a growth. Thus, an absence of inflation growth could force the RBA to ease monetary policy further. At the same time, amid gradual policy tightening in the US the pair will remain under pressure in the medium-term.
Tomorrow attention also needs to be paid to data from the US on Goods Trade Balance, Rebook Index and Consumer Confidence.
 
Support and resistance
The pair broke out its trendline and resistance level at 0.7210 but failed to reach the key resistance level at 0.7330 (ЕМА144 on the daily chart).
A breakdown of the levels of 0.7210, 0.7120 (lower border of a correctional upward channel on the daily chart), 0.7100 (December lows) would resume a downward trend towards 0.7030, 0.6980, 0.6910 (year lows).
At the same time, a price consolidation above the levels of 0.7450 (ЕМА200 on the daily chart), 0.7510 (23.6% Fibonacci correction) would return the pair in an uptrend.
On the daily chart, OsMA and Stochastic recommend purchases, while on the 4-hour chart the indicators turned to sales.
Support levels: 0.7210, 0.7120, 0.7100, 0.7030, 0.6980, 0.6910.
Resistance levels: 0.7290, 0.7330, 0.7400, 0.7450, 0.7510.
 
Trading tips
Pending sell orders can be placed from the level of 0.7250 with targets at 0.7110, 0.7090, 0.7030, 0.6980, 0.6910 and stop-loss at 0.7280.
Pending buy orders can be placed from the level of 0.7310 with targets at 0.7330, 0.7410, 0.7450, 0.7490 and stop-loss at 0.7280.

XAU/USD: general review

Current trend
Gold continues strengthening amid economic crisis in China, where within the first few minutes of trade the CSI300 index fell by almost 7% thus forcing the authorities to stop operations on the stock market.
In addition, markets are worried about Chinese exchange reserves that in 2015 shrank by 512 billion Dollars. According to experts, the biggest chunk of it was spent trying to artificially support of the Yuan. The Chinese government also introduced limits on Dollar purchases thus trying to stabilise the national currency.
Therefore, due to falling oil prices and instability in China the gold is likely to keep strengthening in the near terms.

Support and resistance
Support levels: 1097.66.
Resistance levels: 1112.97.

Trading tips
Long positions can be opened from the level of 1100.00 with the target at 1147.00 and stop-loss at 1090.00.

The EUR/USD pair is trading below the key resistance level of 1.1000. The European currency remains under pressure from a range of fundamental factors.
France’s economy is facing difficulties and needs additional monetary support of about 2 billion euros, according to a preliminary estimate.

At the same time, the President stated the current situation will not affect tax rate and amount of social benefits.
Today, attention needs to be paid to Consumer Price Index data, released in Germany. If the indicator comes in below 0.3%, ECB might have to introduce additional stimulus measures that will add pressure on the European currency.

USD/CAD: pair growth and oil prices fall

Current trend
The Bank of Canada holds its monetary policy meeting today. As BoC Governor Stephen Poloz has repeatedly stated, the Regulator aims at keeping loose monetary policy and considers a possibility of a rate cut to -0.5%.
The Canadian currency is declining against the US Dollar amid a sharp fall in oil prices. On Tuesday, the International Energy Agency reported oil supply might increase by 1.5 barrels per day in next six month. Moreover, oil prices are under pressure due to unfavorable conditions in global stock markets, China's stock market crash in particular.
In the given situation, the Bank of Canada might choose to wait on the sidelines and keep its interest rate on hold at 0.5% that, however, is unlikely to strengthen the national currency.

Support and resistance
Since the beginning of the year, USD/CAD pair has grown by more than 800 points.
OsMA and Stochastic on all timeframes, from 4-hour to monthly, recommend long positions. Any decline in the pair should be seen as a short-term correction.
Support levels: 1.4575, 1.4565, 1.4500, 1.4450, 1.4400.
Resistance levels: 1.4700.

Trading tips
Buy Stop orders can be placed at the level of 1.4710 with targets at 1.4800, 1.4900 and stop-loss at 1.4670.
Sell Stop orders can be placed at the level of 1.4550 with targets at 1.4450, 1.4400 and stop-loss at 1.4580.

AUD/USD: growth might resume

Current trend
On Thursday, the AUD/USD pair tested the level of 0.6950, the 23.6% Fibonacci correction level. The Australian currency managed to strengthen when the US released not so favorable December’s data on inflation. Though Consumer Price Index came in at 0.7% in annual terms, it was 0.1% below the forecast. In monthly terms, the indicator was down to -0.1%. However, the pair is still under pressure from a gradual slowdown in China’s economy as the country is the largest trading partner of Australia.

Support and resistance
The pair is heading to 0.6895, the middle MA of Bollinger Bands. The breakdown of this level allows the pair to continue falling to 0.6835 and 0.6800. Alternatively, if the price turns up and overcomes the 23.6% Fibonacci level, it might grow further to 0.7020 and 0.7080.
Generally, according to technical indicators, the pair tends to grow. Bollinger Bands indicator is turning up. MACD histogram is in the negative zone, its volumes are falling. Only Stochastic lines have crossed each other and turned down, forming a sell signal.
Support levels: 0.6950, 0.7020, 0.7080.
Resistance levels: 0.6895, 0.6835, 0.6800.

Trading tips
Long positions are preferable and can be opened from the level of 0.6950 with targets at 0.7020, 0.7080. Moreover, Buy Limit orders can be placed at the level of 0.6895 with the target at 0.6950.
If the price consolidates below the level of 0.6895, short positions can be opened with targets at 0.6835 and 0.6800.

USD/CAD: pair fell

Current trend
In the end of last week, the pair significantly fell amid substantial growth in oil prices.
In addition, the Canadian Dollar was supported by strong macroeconomic data from Canada. Retail Sales in November 2015 grew by 1.7% while economists predicted a 0.2% growth. At the same time, the Consumer Price Index in December grew by 1.6%, against a 1.4% growth in the previous month that was, however, slightly worse than forecasts. Similar index by the Bank of Canada in December fell by 0.4% that was also a little worse than expectations.

Support and resistance
Bollinger Bands on the daily chart turned horizontally while the price range is narrowing. MACD is falling and giving a very strong sell signal. Stochastic reached its critical level in the oversold zone thus limiting further fall potential.
The indicators recommend waiting for clearer trading signals.
Support levels: 1.4100 (local low), 1.4050, 1.4000 (psychologically important level), 1.3915, 1.3850, 1.3780, 1.3700.

USD/JPY: ahead of BoJ meeting
 
Current trend
On Friday, the Bank of Japan releases its decisions on interest rates and quantitative and qualitative monetary easing programme. Last week, BoJ Governor stated the Regulator will not hesitate to adjust policy as needed to achieve the inflation target of 2%.
Amid a slowdown in Japan’s economic growth and, therefore, different approaches to monetary policy in the US and Japan, the USD/JPY pair is likely to grow in the medium term.
 
Support and resistance
By the opening of the European session, the USD/JPY pair declined by almost 50 points, but then managed to gain back some of its losses, having found a support at 117.90 (EMA200, EMA144 on the hourly chart, EMA50 on the 4-hour chart).
OsMA and Stochastic on the monthly chart recommend short positions. The indicators on the daily chart are giving sell signals; on the weekly chart, they have started turning to long positions as well. However, according to the indicators on the 4-hour chart, the USD/JPY pair is likely to continue moving down in the short term.
After the breakdown of the support levels of 117.90 (EMA200, EMA144 on the hourly chart, EMA50 on the 4-hour chart) and 117.40, a decline will continue towards 116.00 (lower border of a descending channel on the daily chart).
As an alternative scenario, the price might overcome the resistance levels of 118.70 (EMA144), 119.20 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart) and continue growing towards 120.00 (EMA200 on the daily chart), 120.55 (61.8% Fibonacci and ЕМА144 on the daily chart).
Support levels: 117.90, 117.40, 117.00.
Resistance levels: 118.70, 119.20, 120.00, 120.55.
 
Trading tips
Long positions can be opened from the level of 118.40 with targets at 118.70, 119.20, 120.00, 120.50 and stop-loss at 117.80.
Short positions can be opened from the level of 117.30 with targets at 117.00, 116.50, 116.10 and stop-loss at 117.70.

NZD/USD: investors waiting for interest rates decisions
 
Current trend
This week, the NZ Dollar, like other commodity currencies, is losing its positions again, following a decline in the price of oil. The price of oil is under pressure from concerns that an oversupply of the global oil market might deepen.
On Wednesday, market participants will turn their attention to the publications of interest rate decisions in the US and New Zealand. Further dynamics in the NZD/USD pair will largely depend on these releases.
 
Support and resistance
The pair is trading at the middle MA of Bollinger Bands, 0.6480. The breakout of this level leads to a growth to 0.6540. Otherwise, the price might decline back to 0.6420. In the short term, the pair is likely to remain within the range of 0.6540-0.6420.
