EUR/USD: general analysis

1. Current trend

At the opening of European session the pair fell to support level at 1.3175, and after that was trading near the level of 1.3200. The data on Eurozone released today was above experts’ expectations: index of business climate and current assessment index in Germany have overshoot projections.
Index of inflation and money supply M3 are at the level of 2.3%. These facts have triggered short-term rise up to 30-35 points. Another driver of the rise of the pair will be US statistics. Mr. Bernanke’s optimism in terms of recovery of the US economy might have been slightly exaggerated and it will not be able to provide appropriate support to the USD.
The data which is scheduled for the release today is as follows: number of initial claims for unemployment benefits, volume of orders for durable goods, business activity index in manufacturing sector. Experts believe that all indices will show negative performance.

2. Levels of support and resistance


The pair is once again testing resistance level of 1.3255; however it has failed to consolidate above this level. If this level is broken down the price will go up to the local highs of 1.3306.


3. Trading tips


We would recommend to open long positions with the short-term target of 1.3306. In the long-term the movement may reach the level of 1.3360, following the rollback to the line 1.3255.

USD/JPY: pair lacks growth drivers

1. Current trend

At yesterday’s trading session the pair USD/JPY strengthened due to the US news. Preliminary business activity index in the US manufacturing sector amounted to 53.2 points in July, while sales of new homes increased by 38 thousand in June. However this morning the pair started to weaken, dropping to the 99.80. The Yen has strengthened because amid overall weakening of the Asian markets, investors used JPY as a safe-haven currency.

2. Important levels: support and resistance

Currently the pair traded near support level of 99.80, which coincides with the moving average line of “Bollinger bands” indicator, and looks like the key one. If the price breaks down this level, the pair may go down to 99.20 and 99.00. Otherwise the growth may reach the level of 101.00. Note that on Friday morning the data on basic index of consumer prices in Japan for July will become known. Experts expect that the index can amount to 0.3%, which can lead to the weakening in JPY. In the current situation short term short positions can be opened if the price consolidates below the level of 99.80. However long positions are more relevant and they can be opened from the level of 100.00 with profit taking at the level of 101.00.

3. Technical indicators

On the four-hour chart “Bollinger bands” indicator does not demonstrate convergences and is in the sideways trend. The price chart is near the moving average, but cannot break through it. MACD histogram is in the overbought zone, however soon it may move to the oversold zone again. The lines of Stochastic are directed downward, giving a signal for temporary downward movement in price.

The data on GDP has agreed with the positive forecast; however the pair sharply went down, which was triggered by overvalued expectations of investors. Despite favourable British macro-economic statistics economic growth is still below pre-crisis level of 3.3%.

High demand and positive economic data provided support to the pair and GBP/USD soared up to the new local highs. Based on the positive wave the pair reached the level of 1.5430 and after that rolled back to the level of 1.5400. Economic calendar is uneventful today, so the pair will trade with low volatility.

Today, based on the high demand for the Pound the pair can consolidate above key resistance level of 1.5400. Later ascending trend is likely to continue up to the new local highs of 1.5470 and 1.5570. Reputable analysts believe that in the medium-term the pair will reach the level of 1.5750.

Forex: Ichimoku Clouds. Review of USD/CAD

USD/CAD, H4

Let’s look at the four-hour chart. Tenkan-Sen line is below Kijun-Sen line and they are both horizontal. Chinkou Span line is below the price chart, current Kumo-cloud is descending. The pair has slowed down its fall and is trading now along Tenkan-Sen line, which is resistance level at 1.0280. One of the previous extremums of Chinkou Span line is expected to be a support level at 1.0195.


USD/CAD, D1

USD/CAD, D1
On the daily chart Tenkan-sen line is also below Kijun-sen. Chinkou Span line is crossing the price chart from above; current Kumo-cloud is ascending. After long fall the pair has entered the cloud. Upper and lower borders become resistance (1.0312) and support (1.0249) levels respectively. If the price breaks through lower border of the cloud, the next goal for the Bears will be at 1.0155.



Key levels
Support levels: 1.0249, 1.0195, 1.0155.
Resistance levels: 1.0280, 1.0312.




Trading tips
On the four-hour chart the price has slowed down, but we expect a new “bearish” impetus. On the chart with higher timeframe the price has entered the cloud but its volume is less than 100 pips. Considering confirmation sign from the Chinkou Span line we would recommend to open short trades with targets around 1.0155.

GBP/USD: Pound will continue to grow against USD

1. Current trend
At the end of last week the British currency continued to sideways correction in the narrow channel near the level of 1.5400. The pair has repeatedly tried to break down key resistance level and consolidate above it, however all of these attempts failed. Today the pair will continue to move in the narrow range of 1.5405-1.5360. Positive data on the mortgage loaning was not able to add momentum for the further rise in the pair. At the moment investors are waiting for the fundamental statistics on the US construction sector, showing number of pending transactions on selling homes.



2. Important levels: support and resistance

Volatility is not expected to be high today. The pair will continue to move slowly near the key resistance level of 1.5400. There is a high chance that in future the pair will continue to grow up to resistance levels of 1.5530 and 1.5600.

3. Best entry/exit points
In the current situation it is advisable to place long positions with profit taking at the level of 1.5470-1.5530. In addition it is also advisable to place pending long orders from the level of 1.5360-1.5300 with profit taking at the level of 1.5600.

4. Supporting facts
On the four-hour chart MACD histogram is in the positive zone above the signal line and is directed upward, indicating that ascending trend will continue.

USD/CAD: which GDP is higher?

1. Current trend

Last week the pair has been trading within a sideways channel with the borders at 1.0252 and 1.0320. The price went down under 61.8% of Fibinacci lines and hasn’t been able to overcome it since. If we look at the whole chart we will see an end of the correction and further “bearish” movement.
American economy doesn’t give any hope to investors lately, and it surely affects American dollar. Today we anticipate GDP data from Canada and USA, which can strengthen Canadian currency against American one. Experts predict the rise of the Canadian GDP rate by 0.2% and decrease of the US GDP from 1.8% to 1.1%. Bears can also take profit from decrease of Non-Farm Employment rate.


2. Levels of support and resistance


The resistance line is the level 61.8% of Fibonacci lines (1.0317). Support level is lower MA of Bollinger Bands at 1.0252.


3. Trading tips

I would recommend to sell at the current price with targets at 1.0252. If the price consolidate under this level, further movement towards 1.0917 will be possible. Stop Loss orders should be placed at 1.0325.
