liteForex XAU/USD: Murrey analysis

Current trend

On the D1 chart the price failed to consolidate above the level of 1281.25 ([2/8]) and has entered the range of 1281.25 ([2/8])-1265.63 ([1/8]) in which it has been trading for over a week. According to Stochastic that has reversed downwards, in the near future the price may drop to 1265.63 ([1/8]) once again and further go down to 1250.00 ([0/8]). Moreover, the price is under pressure from the middle line of Bollinger Bands. The key level for the “bulls” seems to be 1281.25. In case the price consolidates above it, growth may continue to the border of the channel at 1296.88 ([3/8]) and further to the central level at 1312.50 ([4/8]).

Support and resistance

Support levels: 1265.63 ([1/8]), 1250.00 ([0/8]), 1234.38 ([-1/8]).
Resistance levels: 1281.25 ([2/8]), 1296.88 ([3/8]), 1312.50 ([4/8]).

Trading tips

In the current situation sell positions seem more relevant. They should be opened at the current price with targets at 1265.63, 1250.00 and stop-loss at 1285.00.
Long positions should be opened if the price consolidates above 1281.25 with targets at 1296.88, 1312.50 and stop-loss at 1280.00.

liteForex AUD/USD: under the pressure of Chinese data

Current trend

This week the pair is going down and is now trading around 0.7600. AUD is under the pressure of poor Chinese data: October Retail Sales indicator fell from 10.3% to 10.0% and Industrial production one decreased from 6.6% to 6.2%. Chinese problems can significantly affect Australian economy negatively in long term. China consumes more than third of Australian export, a large part of it is iron ore. More than a half of it and iron product have been using in Chinese building market, which is slowing now. This fact has led to cut of surplus production capacities, which can affect Australian producers negatively.
Today US October Inflation data and Retail Sales publication can cause great volatility of the price. Consumer Price Index can fall from 2.2% to 2.0%, and after September growth by 1.6% Retail Sales data can be 0.0%. In this case the pair can enter the upward correction.

Support and resistance

The key “bearish” level is at 0.7568 (Murray [0/8]). The breakout will let the price fall to the area of 0.7507 (Murray [–2/8]). Stochastic’s attempt to reverse near the oversold area reflects the possibility of the upward correction. However, long positions with the targets at 0.7690 (Murray [4/8]), 0.7720 (Murray [5/8]) will become relevant only after the price is set above the level of 0.7630 (Murray [2/8], the middle line of Bollinger Bands).

Resistance levels: 0.7630, 0.7690, 0.7720.
Support levels: 0.7568, 0.7507.

Trading tips

Short positions can be opened below the level of 0.7568 with the target at 0.7507 and stop loss at 0.7600.

Long positions can be opened above the level of 0.7630 with the targets at 0.7690, 0.7720 and stop loss at 0.7600.

NZD/USD: downward impulse maintains

Current trend

New Zealand Currency is significantly falling against the US dollar after the interest rate decision and RBNZ Statement upon the maintenance of the mild monetary policy in the long term.
In the middle of the last week in RBNZ statement was claimed that the key interest rate will stay on the same level, so the monetary policy perspectives are unclear. It was also noted, that low rate of the national currency is necessary to increase the inflation rate.
Today the pair rapidly went down, breaking few of the key support levels. Poor Business NZ PMI, Producer Price Index – Input and Output data affected the pair negatively. The pair has lost 100 points in a few hours, and downward momentum maintains.
As there is lack of US key releases in the economical calendar, the pair will move according to the trading moods.

Support and resistance

The pair will fall to the key levels of 0.6770, 0.6680, 0.6575. Insignificant upward correction at the level of 0.6770 with the target at 0.6820 is possible, but after it the pair will decrease further. Technical indicators confirms the forecast, MACD reflects the growth of short positions volumes, Bollinger Bands are pointed downwards.

Resistance levels: 0.6820, 0.6875, 0.6920, 0.6975, 0.7010, 0.7050.
Support levels: 0.6770, 0.6730, 0.6680, 0.6575, 0.6500.

Trading tips

It’s better to increase the volume of short positions at the current level with the targets at 0.6770, 0.6680, 0.6575 and stop loss at 0.6860

GBP/USD: perspectives are unclear

Current trend

Last week pound was growing and reached the maximum since the beginning of October at the level of 1.3360 on Friday.
The investors concern more upon the possible slowing of the monetary policy tightening rate in the USA, than the Brexit negotiations of UK and EU difficulties, where the parties still cannot began to discuss trading agreements due to the fact that the Irish border issue is unclear. Irish government wants to get the guarantees from UK government, that the control on the border between North Ireland and Republic Ireland won’t be implied. Otherwise the Irish party, represented by Commissioner for Agriculture Phil Hogan threatens to block further Brexit negotiations.

Intransigence of the parties and the delaying of Brexit negotiations make business community fears that the deal won’ be done at all, and UK will leave EU without any agreements. This has led to the fact that a number of companies decreased its presence in the country, which can result in the Industrial Production and GDP fall in the UK.
Last week British Office for Budget Responsibility decreased the next year GDP growth forecast from 2.0% to 1.5%. The middle term perspectives of the currency are still unclear.

Support and resistance

Technically the price is tending to the level of 1.3366 (Murray [7/8]) and after the breakout can move upwards to the level of 1.3427 (Murray [8/8]). Otherwise the price can return to the levels of 1.3305 (Murray [6/8], the middle line of Bollinger Bands), 1.3244 (Murray [5/8]). Technical indicators reflect the growth. Bollinger Bands are pointed upwards, Stochastic reversed upwards.

Resistance levels: 1.3366, 1.3427, 1.3488.
Support levels: 1.3305, 1.3244, 1.3183.

Trading tips

Long positions can be opened above the level of 1.3366 with the target at 1.3427 and stop loss at 1.3300.
The consolidation of the price below the level of 1.3305 will make short positions with the targets at 1.3244, 1.3183 and stop loss at 1.3340 relevant.

EUR/USD: Powell strengthened dollar

Current trend

In the beginning of the week the pair was growing to the area of 1.1962 (Murray [4/8]), but was corrected and is now trading around 1.1880.
USD strengthened after Powell’s statements before the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, U.S. Senate meeting. Today the Committee should make a decision upon the conformation of Fed’s head. Powell noted, that the regulator will maintain the increasing rates and reducing balance-sheets policy and support the employment market and stimulate the inflation. He also supported the banks activity on the stocks markets restriction laws, which will let US financial system be strengthened.

Powell’s statement stimulated the growth of dollar, but it’s unclear, how significant will it be. Today the investors are focused on Trumps meeting with the US Senate Republican Party members, where he will try to persuade them to vote for the tax reform package, but earlier senators Ron Johnson and Bob Corker threatened to vote against the new laws. The result of the negotiations can bring the pair significant volatility.

Support and resistance

The price weakened below the level of 1.1900 (Murray [3/8]) and the middle line of Bollinger Bands and can be corrected to the levels of 1.1840 (Murray [2/8]) and 1.1780 (Murray [1/8]). The growth to the levels of 1.2023 (Murray [5/8]) and 1.2085 (Murray [6/8]) is possible after the breakout of the level of 1.1962 (Murray [4/8]).

Resistance levels: 1.1900, 1.1962, 1.2023, 1.2085.
Support levels: 1.1840, 1.1780, 1.1718.

Trading tips

Short positions can be opened at the current level with the targets at 1.1840, 1.1780 and stop loss at 1.1930.
The consolidation of the price above the level of 1.1962 will make long positions with the targets at 1.2023, 1.2085 and stop loss at 1.1930 relevant.

USD/JPY: the pair has been corrected

Current trend

Today the pair moved away from the resistance level of 111.65 and dropped to 111.38. This dynamics was caused by yet another launch of a ballistic missile by North Korea. International leaders traditionally criticized the launch. Donald Trump said the missile was a threat to the whole world, and South Korean President Moon Jae-in asked North Korea to stop aggression and embark on negotiations. However, the general reaction of the market was not noticeable. The announcement of North Korean officials that the main tasks of the nuclear program had been completed also gives certain optimism.

Political tension pushed economic data backwards, and they are generally negative for yen. October statistics on retail sales was weak. The indicator made up 0.0% MoM and -0.2% YoY. Retail sales in major stores also dropped by 0.77%. According to a monthly report of the Japanese government, the national economy is moderately restoring, but internal consumption does not grow fast enough due to slower salary increase rates thus putting pressure on GDP.

Support and resistance

Right now the price is restoring positions after a morning fall. A key level for the “bulls” is 111.65. Its breakout will open the way for further growth to 112.50 (Murrey [8/8], middle line of Bollinger Bands). Breaking down the level of110.93 (Murrey [7/8]) will open the way for further fall to 110.20 and 109.37 (Murrey [6/8]). Technical indicators show possible upward correction. Stochastic is leaving the oversold area, and MACD histogram begins to reduce in the negative zone.

Support levels: 110.93, 110.20, 109.37.
Resistance levels: 111.65, 112.50, 113.20.

Trading tips

Buy positions may be opened above the level of 111.65 with target at 112.50 and stop-loss at 111.10.
The consolidation of the price below 110.93 and the reversal around 111.65 will make short positions relevant with targets at 110.20, 109.37 and stop-loss at 111.30 and 112.00.

GBP/USD: the pound stopped strengthening

Current trend

Last week the pair continued to grow and today reached the level of 1.3548 (Murrey [6/8]). By now it has been corrected to the level of 1.3488 (Murrey [5/8]) but may resume growth as the general background is negative for USD. Investors were disappointed that the Senate stopped the discussion of the tax reform and moved the vote from Thursday to Friday. The market is also unstable due to the news about possible dismissal of the US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson due to his recent conflict with President Trump.
On the other hand, the pound is supported by strong data on the UK industrial PMI. In November the indicator grew from 56.6 to 58.2 points which is the best value since 2013. Correction may continue if strong data on ISM industrial PMI are released from the USA. However, the indicator is expected to fall (from 58.7 to 58.4 points).

Support and resistance

Right now the pair is trading around 1.3488 (Murrey [5/8]) and is trying to move upwards. The key level for the “bulls” seems to be 1.3549 (Murrey [6/8]). Breaking through it will open the way for further growth of the pair to 1.3610 (Murrey [7/8]) and 1.3670 (Murrey [8/8]). The consolidation of the price below 1.3488 will lead to further reduction to 1.3427 (Murrey [4/8], middle line of Bollinger Bands) and 1.3366 (Murrey [3/8]). Technical indicators provide for correction. Stochastic is directed downwards, and MACD histogram started to fall in the positive zone and broke down the signal line.

Support levels: 1.3488, 1.3427, 1.3366.
Resistance levels: 1.3550, 1.3610, 1.3671.

Trading tips

In the current situation buy positions may be opened above the level of 1.3550 with targets at 1.3610, 1.3671 and stop-loss at 1.3510.
Sell positions should be opened below the level of 1.43888 with targets at 1.3427, 1.3367 and stop-loss at 1.3520.

EUR/USD: the pair is waiting

Current trend

During the current week the pair is trading near the level of 1.1840 (Murrey [1/8]) but is unable to move below it because it is supported by the middle line of Bollinger Bands. In the near future the price may remain within the range of 1.1800-1.1850 although potential of reduction to 1.1718 (Murrey [0/8]) remains. Still, investors are unlikely to take risks before Friday releases from the US labor market (the indicator is about to reduce from 260K to 200K).

Moreover, market is unstable due to the uncertain situation with the US state debt limit. The Congress has to agree on its increase before Friday, otherwise the financing of governmental structures will be reduced, and some of them may stop working.
Today attention should be paid to November employment data by ADP that are considered an early indicator for federal statistics. The indicator is expected to drop from 235K to 185K causing the growth of the price and the weakening of the US currency.

Support and resistance

Technical indicators show possible continuation of the fall. Stochastic is directed downwards, and MACD histogram has crossed the signal line from above. Still, one may speak about the opening of short positions only after the price consolidates below the middle line of Bollinger Bands. In this case it may go down to 1.1718 (Murrey [0/8]) and 1.1657 (Murrey [-2/8] for H4). In case the price consolidates above 1.1840, growth may continue to 1.1962 (Murrey [2/8]).

Support levels: 1.1800, 1.1718, 1.1657.
Resistance levels: 1.1840, 1.1900, 1.1930, 1.1962.

Trading tips

Sell positions may be opened from the level of 1.1800 with targets at 1.1718, 1.1657 and stop-loss at 1.1850. Buy positions should be opened from 1.1870 with target at 1.1962 and stop-loss at 1.1840.

XAU/USD: Fibonacci analysis

Current trend

In the H4 chart the price has been showing a downward trend for the second week in a row. By now it has tested the level of 1255.70 and, according to MACD histogram that is increasing in the negative zone and Bollinger Bands directed downwards, it ready to continue reduction. In case of reversal the price may be corrected to the middle line of Bollinger Bands at 1266.00 (correction by 23.6%).

D1 chart is more interesting. The price has broken out the lower border of the horizontal channel (around 1265.00) within which it has been trading since September. By now the quotes have potential for further reduction to the gathering of corrections at 1242.00 (50,0% for W1, 76,4% for D1). However, to do so they would have to break through the upward fan. The key area for the “bulls” is 1265.00 (gathering of 38.2% correction for W1 and 61.8% for D1). In case the price returns to the side channel, growth may continue to 1279.50 (correction 50.0% for D1, middle line of Bollinger Bands) and 1297.00 (gathering of corrections 23.6% for W1 and 38.2% for D1). Indicators show mixed signals. MACD histogram is growing in the negative zone. Bollinger Bands start to diverge confirming the formation of the downward trend. However, Stochastic has entered the oversold area which may cause the formation of a buy signal.

Trading tips

Sell positions should be opened below the level of 1255.00 with target at 1242.00 and stop-loss at 1262.00.

Alternative scenario

Buy positions may be opened if the price consolidates above the level of 1265.00 with targets at 1279.50, 1297.00. Stop-loss should be placed around 1257.00
