GBP/USD Technical Analysis: October 28, 2016

Postby Andrea ForexMart » Sat Oct 29, 2016 3:22 am

The sterling pound was able to acquire some measure of support following the release of a highly positive GDP report for the region. The GBP has now significantly increased in value. However, further profits for the sterling pound was restrained after the USD was able to recover its previous losses.

The GBP/USD remained a few points away from its current support level of 1.2200 during Thursday’s session, with its most recent reversion stalling within the 1.2150 range which caused the pair’s price rate to drop. Meanwhile, the GBP stayed within the 1.2200 range and increased in value during the London session, but the GBP/USD pair slightly weakened during the New York session. The GBP reverted from the 50-EMA within the 1.2200 range and was able to break through the 200-EMA in its hourly chart. The 200 EMA is is exhibiting a downward trend, while the 50 and 100 EMA is currently at the neutral territory. Resistance levels for the GBP/USD is at 1.2300, while support levels for the pair are expected to be at 1.2200.

The MACD technical indicator for the pair is currently at the middle, and an increase in buyer strength is expected once the histogram indicator moves to the positive side of the chart. However, once the MACD enters the negative side, then this will signal a market takeover by sellers. If the sterling continues to weaken, then the GBP/USD pair is expected to go below 1.2200, wherein sellers are expected to move the currency’s value further into 1.2100. On the other hand, the downward pressure on the sterling might be lessened if the pair goes beyond the 1.2300 range.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: November 02, 2016

Postby Andrea ForexMart » Fri Nov 04, 2016 10:46 am

The EUR/USD pair increased up to 1.1068, its highest level reached in 3 weeks after the dollar traded significantly lower after the results of the US Presidential poll showed that Trump went one point higher than Clinton with regards to voters’ intentions. Meanwhile, US macroeconomic releases came out on a positive note after the Markit PMI data for October came out at 53.4, its highest data release for 2016.


In spite of positive US data which strengthens the possibility of an interest rate hike in December, the USD is still in danger of dropping in value during the Tokyo session due to the negative market sentiment with regards to the US dollar. The 4-hour chart for the currency pair exhibits high overbought rates for the technical indicators even though the EUR/USD had a bare minimum of additional 100 pips on a daily basis, which is also an indicator that there is a possibility that the EUR/USD could gain more profit.


The EUR/USD will have to go above its daily highs in order to incur more gains since this is the 50% retracements of its most recent drop in value. The movement of the EUR/USD is expected to slow down during the Tokyo session prior to the FOMC meeting which will determine whether the USD will be able to sustain its current bearish stance.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis: November 02, 2016

Postby Andrea ForexMart » Fri Nov 04, 2016 11:08 am

The GBP/USD pair increased up to 1.2280 points but immediately reverted back to 1.2200 points before closing the previous trading session at 1.2230 points. The momentum of the GBP slowed down after the release of the UK Markit manufacturing PMI data for October which plummeted to 54.3 points from its previous reading of 55.5 points. Market speculators are waiting for the results of the Bank of England’s Thursday meeting even though the BoE is not expected to make adjustments to its monetary policies as of the moment.


However, BoE governor Mark Carney relieved the market on Monday after announcing that the governor will be serving another term in order to help the bank’s economic policies adjust to the effects of Brexit. The technical indicators for the pair have maintained their neutral bearings with the 20 SMA now at 1.2200 and other indicators seen at the positive territory but lacking decisive directional strength.


Market players are advised to monitor the 1.2335 region on the upward territory and its support levels at 1.2170 points since the pair will have to break through any of these levels in order to gain significant directional momentum.

USD/JPY Technical Analysis: November 3, 2016

Postby Andrea ForexMart » Fri Nov 04, 2016 11:33 am

The USD continues to be subject to downward pressure during Wednesday’s trading session due to uncertainties brought about by the upcoming US Presidential elections next week. The USD/JPY pair was unable to maintain its previous levels of 105.00 after a heavy seller resistance within this particular region, causing the currency pair to lose some of its value. Wednesday’s trading session saw the pair remain in the negative territory as the downward momentum for the currency pair continued. Seller pressure also pushed the USD/JPY further below 104.00 and is now approaching the 103.00 trading range.


The USD/JPY pair broke through 103.50 and is well on its way to 103.00. The pricing of the currency pair went over the 100-EMA and is testing the 200-EMA for the pair’s 4-hour chart. Meanwhile, moving averages for the USD/JPY is currently on the downward direction. Resistance levels for the pair are expected to be at 103.50, while support levels for the pair are expected to be at 103.00. MACD indicators for the pair declined, showing seller strength. RSI indicators are now a few pips away from the oversold level which signals a possible downward move for the pair.


If the USD/JPY continues to be subject to downward pressure, then the pair could possible reach its previous low of 102.50. However, there is still a probability that the pair would be able to reach its resistance levels at 103.50-103.80 points.

Technical Analysis for USD/JPY: November 7, 2016

Postby Andrea ForexMart » Mon Nov 07, 2016 10:41 am

The USD/JPY pair was able to make a small recovery during last Friday’s session after a series of risk-offs which hit the European and American stock market. However, the pair continues to stay in the negative territory and traded within Thursday’s low levels on Friday’s session. The currency pair had a fairly bearish stance after the pair experienced selling pressure above the 103.00 region. Resistance was encountered by USD bulls along the 103.20 trading range where the 200 EMA is also located. The 200 EMA maintained the pressure on the USD/JPY by resisting all possible recovery moves.


The 50 and 100 EMAs for the currency pair decreased quickly, while the 200 EMA maintained its bearish outlook for the session. Resistance levels for the currency pair is expected to be around the 103.50 range, while support levels are expected to come up at the 103.00 region. The technical indicators for the USD/JPY pair are seen to be slightly bearish, with an increase in the MACD indicator showing a weakness in seller positions. Meanwhile, the RSI indicators for the pair is still consolidating within its undervalued regions.


The USD/JPY pair is expected to have its resistance levels at 103.50 if the currency pair would be able to consolidate over the 103.00 region. However, the USD/JPY might again experience a decline if the pair closes the session with a lower value than this particular level.

USD/JPY Technical Analysis: November 8, 2016

Postby Andrea ForexMart » Fri Nov 11, 2016 6:57 am

The Bank of Japan and the Federal Reserve did not release any important economic statements today, and investors from Japan are not expected to make any significant movements until after the US presidential elections. The USD/JPY pair is also expected to further decrease in value due to the most recent movement in oil prices. The USD/JPY pair further widened its gap during Monday’s session, increasing from 103.13 to 103.74 points due to gap traders triggering an increase in the gap value.


Meanwhile, the pair’s pricing was able to increase by up to 104.50 after the upward momentum for the pair decreased and is expected to be sustained until the end of the New York session. The 4-hour chart for the pair showed the USD going over its current moving averages, with the 50, 100, and 200 EMAs exhibiting an upward direction. Resistance levels for the support is expected to be at 104.50, while support levels are expected to be at 104.00 points.


MACD levels for the pair exhibited a drop in seller strength due to its increase. RSI indicators are still in the overvalued range but could probably go lower as the trading session progresses. The negative outlook for the USD/JPY could possibly fade if the currency pair goes over 104.00 points, and buyers could be able to increase their profits if it reaches 105.00. Conversely, bears might be able to induce the pricing to go beneath 104.00 points.

EUR/GBP Technical Analysis: November 15, 2016

Postby Andrea ForexMart » Tue Nov 15, 2016 8:39 am

The EUR/GBP pair lost its sellers below the 0.86 region for the third consecutive session, maintaining the currency pair’s stance over the key levels in the light of a highly active economic calendar. The market is expecting the release of Germany’s GDP report for the third quarter of 2016. The CPI data for the UK is also expected to exhibit an increased cost of living for the nation at 1.1% for October. The GDP report for the European Union is also expected to get significant attention from market players as it gets released later in the session.


The increased activity in the economic calendar could lead to an increase in stock market activity, which will then have a significant impact on the demand for EUR. The EUR/GBP is currently trading at the 0.8610 range, and incessant bounces from the 0.86 handle could possibly cause the pair to break through the handle and could lead the pair to trade at 0.8652 points and 0.85. On the positive territory, if the pair manages to go above its 100-DMA of 0.8628 then this could cause the pair to go over 0.8664 and possibly even reach its zero figure of 0.8700.

USD/JPY Technical Analysis: November 15, 2016

Postby Andrea ForexMart » Tue Nov 15, 2016 10:39 am

The JPY was subject to selling pressure following a speech from the Bank of Japan’s Haruhiko Kuroda. The Japanese yen was unable to receive substantial support from domestic demand in spite of the positive output for the Japanese GDP for the third quarter. Meanwhile, the USD was subject to increased buying pressure, causing the USD/JPY pair to increase in value. The currency pair’s value continued to trade along the upper range, with the pair testing the 108.00 range, where it remained until the end of the London trading session. The New York session saw the USD/JPY break through its previous level and buyers were able to extend profits beyond the 108.00 region.


The USD/JPY’s 4-hour chart shows the pair going well beyond its current moving averages, while the pair’s 50, 100, and 200 EMAs showed a significant increase in value. Resistance levels for the USD/JPY is currently at 108.50, while support levels are expected to be at 108.00. The pair’s technical indicators are all situated at the positive region. The USD will have to go beyond 108.00 in order to maintain the pair’s bullish stance and to keep the pair going up to 108.50. Sellers are also expected to make a comeback in the market, with the 106.50 as their primary aim for the USD/JPY.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis: November 18, 2016

Postby Andrea ForexMart » Fri Nov 18, 2016 9:17 am

The market trend yesterday was pessimistic as it continued going down almost to lower physiological levels. The price activity remained calm with the latest lows during the Asian session. The uptrend was held back as it reached the 1.0750 mark resulting to a decline of the pair.


The Moving Averages stayed a bearish tone while Euro was seen to break in the 50-EMA followed by the retest in 100-EMA chart. The Resistance level is at 1.0750 while the support is seen at 1.0700 level. The technical indicators showed a bearish tone upon entering the negative zone. Both MACD and RSI indicator were seen within the oversold area.


If the pair did not go beyond the 1.0700 mark, the prices might go lower towards the 1.0650 level and will remain consolidated unless it will break at 1.0750 level.


The Eurozone CPI results for October were positive while the monthly CPI failed to meet expectations. The dollar slightly weakened but there are still appreciation seen to new highs. This is because of investors waiting for the next Fed rate hike on December and further strengthening of the economy.
