AUD/NZD Technical Analysis: October 20, 2016

Postby Andrea ForexMart » Thu Oct 20, 2016 9:41 am

The AUD/NZD pair is currently trading at 1.0624 after dropping by -0.50% during the last session with a session high of 1.0696 points and a session low of 1.0613. The currency pair has decreased significantly following a negative Australian market report release, and the Reserve Bank of Australia is now considering ways on how to further stimulate economic factors for the nation.

The currency pair plummeted from 1.0696 to 1.0612 on the hourly chart, with the AUD exhibiting remarkable resiliency in the recent bulls in the market. The NZD and AUD are both exceeding expectations and gaining significant profits especially now that the market is primarily driven by oil prices.

Since the currency pair is at the 1.0624 region, resistance levels is expected to be at the last session low of 1.0626, 1.0633, and 1.0667 for the hourly EMA. Meanwhile, support levels are expected to be at the daily S1 of 1.0621, its daily low of 1.0613, and the daily 20-SMA of 1.0594.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: October 20, 2016

Postby Andrea ForexMart » Fri Oct 21, 2016 4:51 am

The GBP/USD pair closed the last trading session with a minimal decrease in its value after closing the session at 1.2260 points after reaching a weekly high of 1.2332 points, which was due to the release of the UK employment data. The employment data showed that the number of employed people in the UK increased up to 106,000 from June to August 2016, although the unemployment rate maintained its previous stance at 4.9%. On the other hand, the data for wages exceeded market expectations after surging to 2.3% excluding bonuses.

However, in spite of the fairly positive jobs data which is expected to persist until the following months, investors and traders are expressing concerns with regards to the possible divergence in inflation rates and salary increases, which might create market problems in the long run.

The resistance levels for the currency pair retreated significantly in the 4-hour chart. The resistance levels moved back from the 1.2320-1.2330 range, while other technical indicators are also reverting back from their previous values but still manages to remain in the positive side of the chart. If the pair breaks below 1.2230, then the pair is most likely to drop further into the 1.21 trading range.

USD/JPY Technical Analysis: October 21, 2016

Postby Andrea ForexMart » Fri Oct 21, 2016 6:24 am

The USD/JPY pair is currently trading at 104.13 points after increasing by 0.18% during the last session and has recorded a session high of 104.18 and a session low of 103.91 points. The currency pair is already losing its Asian session bid after the USD finally regained some of its lost value. The Bank of Japan’s Sakura Regional Economic Report has expressed possibilities of the yen increasing its pressure and has decreased the economic assessment for the Tokai region.

Analysts are noting how the USD/JPY pair has remained stable all throughout the yield curve control set by the Bank of Japan, with all major Japanese markets such as JPY yields, Nikkei stock index and the USD/JPY experiencing relatively low volatility during the past trading sessions. The lower range for the USD/JPY pair might also be supported by the simultaneous selling off by Japan-based investors.

Since the current trading value for the USD/JPY is at 104.13 points, resistance levels are expected to be at 104.18 points and 104.20 points. Meanwhile, support levels are expected to come in at the 104.14 range and 104.12 and could possibly drop further to 103.89.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: October 21, 2016

Postby Andrea ForexMart » Fri Oct 21, 2016 11:10 am

The GBP/USD pair closed down the last trading session with little activity after the pair was unable to break through a large-scale resistance at the 1.2330 region. The sterling pound suffered during the first part of the London trading session after the release of retail sales data for September turned out to be a major disappointment for investors and traders. The initial demand for the EUR/GBP also increased significantly due to a reaction from investors after the release of the ECB’s statement, causing the GBP/USD to further plummet to a daily basis of 1.2209 points. However, the pair was able to revert back to its present value of 1.2260 during the New York session.

The general risk for the GBP/USD is currently leaning towards the negative territory, especially if the currency pair fails to go back to the 1.2300 region. The 4-hour chart for the currency pair is exhibiting a bearish-neutral stance, with the pair’s momentum possibly going over the downside with a significant downward curve.

Meanwhile, the pair’s RSI levels could possibly consolidate at 48 and the price could hit the 20 SMA. The currency pair might decline further to the 1.2100 trading range if selling interest gets reverted below the pair’s daily lows.

EUR/JPY Technical Analysis: October 24, 2016

Postby Andrea ForexMart » Tue Oct 25, 2016 5:00 am

The EUR/JPY pair dropped in value for the second straight week, recording session lows of 112.60 last Friday and closing down the last trading session at 112.96 points. The Japanese yen was boosted by statements from the Bank of Japan’s governor Kuroda, who has said that there is little possibility that the financial activity in the region would be facing actual risk-taking anytime soon. Furthermore, Kuroda also added that the BoJ might delay hitting its inflation target of 2%, with the imminent weakness in the euro adding up to the bearish stance of the currency pair.

The EUR/JPY has been trading with the 112.05-116.30 since July, and charts for the currency pair are showing that it could possibly go even lower especially since technical indicators for the currency pair are exhibiting bearish stances. The pricing for the EUR/JPY has also received repeated rejections while attempting to break through its 100 DMA.

However, if the pair manages to go beyond its recorded lows, then this could cause the pair to reach 112.05 points, while a further drop could lead to a speeding up of the pair’s momentum with regards to its bearish stance.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: October 25, 2016

Postby Andrea ForexMart » Tue Oct 25, 2016 11:09 am

The GBP/USD pair lost some of its footing during the last trading session and has settled within the 1.2200 region. The sterling pound experienced ambiguity after the release of the UK CBI Industrial data showed a drop in manufacturing orders for October and manufacturing output increasing in the previous quarter and volume levels for export reaching its highest levels in over two years as a result of a weakening in the GBP.


The market is expecting that the GBP will be subject to even more pressure due to the uncertainties surrounding the UK amid Theresa May’s Brexit strategies which were subject to questions and concerns from various lawmakers in the UK government. The GBP/USD generally maintains a neutral-bearish stance in its 4-hour chart, with a somewhat bearish 20 SMA and an absence of directional strength in the pair’s technical indicators in the negative side of the chart. Current support levels for the currency pair is at 1.2170, and analysts are expecting a bearish extension if the pair manages to go even lower than the indicated support level.

USD/CAD Technical Analysis: October 28, 2016

Postby Andrea ForexMart » Fri Oct 28, 2016 10:30 am

The CAD experienced a drop in relation to the USD after dovish statements from the Bank of Canada last week plus corrections in crude oil prices put downward pressure on the CAD. The USD/CAD pair was able to maintain its bullish stance during Thursday’s trading session, with the pair remaining at the 1.3400 region, which is the pair’s current critical range. However, the pricing for the currency pair was able to drop slightly prior to the opening of the New York session.

The USD/CAD was able to go over its current moving averages after its 50-EMA provided ample support for the currency’s price in the daily chart. However, the pair is seen to have probable difficulties with regards to moving lower from the 50-EMA. The moving averages for the currency pair are generally higher, and analysts are expecting resistance levels to be at 1.3400 points while support levels are expected to be at 1.3300.

The MACD indicators for the USD/CAD pair is still consolidating within its levels, while the RSI remains at the overvalued trading range. Analysts are expecting that if the pair manages to go break through the 1.3400 region, then the USD will be able to have more profits upon reaching the 1.3470 range. On the other hand, if the pair drops and hits the 1.3300, then the market is advised to look at the trading range of 1.3250.
