Brent: prices are rising again
15/09/2017
Current dynamics

During today's Asian session, the Japanese broadcaster NHK announced the next launch of the North Korean ballistic missile towards Japan. Investors reacted rather sluggishly to the next launch of the missile. The price of oil in response to this message has slightly decreased. However, in general, quotations were stable, and during the European session, the growth of oil prices resumed.
A sharp increase in oil prices is observed for the second week in a row. The tension between the United States and North Korea has somewhat decreased. Concerns about the effects of hurricanes in the United States and the political contradictions in Washington have also weakened a bit.
American refineries have been restoring their work after the hurricanes, and the demand for oil in the US is gradually recovering.
On Tuesday, its monthly report was released by OPEC. According to this document, the cartel's output in August fell for the first time since April. In addition, OPEC countries adhered to the agreement on oil production reduction more strictly. OPEC and countries outside the cartel are discussing the possibility of extending the agreement after March next year.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) on Wednesday presented a report according to which the world oil supply in August fell for the first time in the last 4 months, by 720,000 barrels per day. At the same time, the IEA raised the forecast for the growth of world oil demand in 2017 to 1.6 million barrels per day. Optimistic forecasts for oil demand in the coming months and data on the fall of world oil reserves contribute to higher oil prices.
Today at 17:00 (GMT) the American oil service company Baker Hughes will publish a weekly report on the number of active drilling platforms in the US. This report is an important indicator of the activity of the oil sector of the US economy and significantly affects the quotes of oil prices. The previous report indicated a reduction in the number of active drilling platforms due to Hurricane Harvey (up to 756 against 759 weeks earlier and 768 two weeks ago). If the number of active drilling rigs decreases again, this will also contribute to the growth of oil quotes.

Support and resistance levels
This week, the price of Brent crude oil broke through an important resistance level of 54.70
(EMA200 on the weekly chart) and continues to grow in the upward channel on the daily chart, the upper border of which passes near the mark of 58.45 (highs of 2017).
The fundamental factors speak in favor of maintaining the positive dynamics of oil prices and the likelihood of their further growth.
The breakthrough of resistance level 55.65 (EMA50 on the monthly chart) will create prerequisites for further price growth with the target of 58.45 dollars per barrel of Brent crude oil.
The reduction scenario involves a breakdown of the 54.70 support level and a further price fall with targets at support levels of 52.90 (EMA144 on the 4-hour chart and the bottom line of the uplink on the daily chart), 52.45 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart).
The breakdown of the support levels 51.20 (EMA200 on the daily chart), 50.70 (EMA50 on the weekly chart, as well as the Fibonacci retracement level of 61.8% of the correction to the decline from the level of 65.30 from June 2015 to the absolute lows of 2016 near the 27.00 mark) will mean a price return to bearish trend, and the decline may extend to the level of support at 50.00 (the lows of August). Further objectives are support levels 48.75, 48.00, 46.20 (50% Fibonacci level), 44.50 (lows of the year). A more distant goal is the level 41.70 (the Fibonacci level of 38.2% and the lower boundary of the descending channel on the weekly chart).
So far, positive dynamics have prevailed.
Support levels: 55.00, 54.70, 53.45, 53.30, 52.90, 52.45, 51.70, 51.20, 50.70, 50.00
Resistance levels: 55.65, 56.50, 56.80, 57.50, 58.45

Trading Scenarios

Sell Stop 54.90. Stop-Loss 55.80. Take-Profit 54.70, 53.45, 53.30, 52.90, 52.45, 51.70, 51.20, 50.70
Buy Stop 55.80. Stop-Loss 54.90. Take-Profit 56.00, 56.50, 56.80, 57.50, 58.45

NZD/USD: volatility is expected to increase
19/09/2017
Current dynamics

The main events of the week started are the meetings of the central banks of the USA and Japan. The two-day meeting of the Fed starts today, and will end on Wednesday with a publication (at 18:00 GMT) of interest rate decisions and a press conference, which will begin at 18:30 (GMT).
On Thursday, a more favorable than expected consumer price index in the US was published, which strengthened investors' expectations about the likelihood of another rate hike this year. According to the CME Group, investors estimate the likelihood of a rate hike by the end of the year at 58% against the 41% level noted last week.
On Wednesday, the Fed is expected to announce plans to reduce its portfolio of mortgage and government bonds by $ 4.5 trillion, but will leave interest rates unchanged.
If the leaders of the Fed express confidence in the restoration of economic growth in the US, it will support the dollar.
Concerning the New Zealand dollar, it is worth noting that volatility in trading on it could rise sharply on Monday, when the results of the general election in New Zealand, which will be held on Saturday, will be known. According to the latest opinion poll, the gap between the candidates remains very small. 42.4% of the respondents are ready to cast their votes for the National Party, and 40.4% for the opposition Labor Party. If the ruling National Party wins, the New Zealand dollar will strengthen on the foreign exchange market.
From the news for today it is worth paying attention to the publication after 13:00 (GMT) of the data from the auction of dairy products. The price index for dairy products, prepared by Global Dairy Trade, came out last time with the value of + 0.3%.
It is expected that the price of milk powder will not change or fall by 2%, which will have a negative impact on the New Zealand dollar.

Support and resistance levels
Today, NZD/USD is making another attempt to break through the resistance level of 0.7290 (EMA200 on the weekly chart).
At the same time, NZD / USD keeps positive dynamics, trading in the uplink on the weekly chart, the upper limit of which is above the resistance level of 0.7550 (the Fibonacci level of 38.2% of the upward correction to the global wave of decline from 0.8800, which began in July 2014, December 2016).
Indicators OsMA and Stochastics on the daily, weekly, monthly charts were turned to long positions.
In case of breaking through the local resistance level of 0.7345, the growth of NZD / USD pair will continue with the target at the level of 0.7550.
In the alternative scenario and in case of breakdown of the support level of 0.7240 (Fibonacci level of 38.2%), further decrease to the support levels 0.7200 (EMA144), 0.7175 (EMA200 on the daily chart) is possible.
The breakdown at 0.7175 raises the risks of a return to a downtrend. The immediate goal of further decline is the support level of 0.7080 (the lower boundary of the descending channel on the daily chart and EMA200 on the monthly chart).
The break of 0.6860 (the Fibonacci level of 23.6% and the lower limit of the range between 0.7550 and 0.6860) will mean the end of the upward correction, which began in September 2015, and return to the downtrend.
Support levels: 0.7265, 0.7240, 0.7200, 0.7175
Resistance levels: 0.7300, 0.7345, 0.7455, 0.7500, 0.7550

Trading Scenarios

Sell Stop 0.7260. Stop-Loss 0.7310. Take-Profit 0.7240, 0.7200, 0.7175, 0.7100, 0.7000, 0.6860
Buy Stop 0.7310. Stop-Loss 0.7260. Take-Profit 0.7400, 0.7455, 0.7500, 0.7550

S&P500: sluggish index dynamics
20/09/2017
Current dynamics

Trading on world stock exchanges today is sluggish. Market participants took a wait-and-see position before the Fed decision on rates. Investors almost did not react to the speech of President Donald Trump at the UN in which he threatened to "completely destroy" North Korea if the US had to defend itself or its allies. It seems that investors do not believe in such a scenario of development of the geopolitical confrontation on the Korean peninsula.
Today, the focus of market participants is the Fed meeting. The US Central Bank is expected to announce a reduction in the balance of 4.5 trillion dollars. However, the rates will remain at the current level in the range of 1.00-1.25%.
The change in the Fed's forecasts regarding the dynamics of interest rates for the next year is the most interesting issue for investors. If the prospects for raising rates worsen, the dollar may be under pressure. At the same time, the US stock markets will receive an additional impetus to the continuation of the bullish trend.
Another point that deserves attention in assessing the prospects and dynamics of stock indices. Republicans in the US Senate prepared a preliminary draft agreement on the budget, which laid down the parameters of the tax reform. Until now, stock markets have ignored the failures of the administration of the US president, relying mainly on the strong reports of US companies and macro statistics.
Adoption of the budget is a prerequisite for passage in the Senate of the law on taxes by a simple majority vote, without the support of representatives of a democratic party.
In case of successful outcome of voting on this issue, the US stock market will respond with growth, as the tax reform of the administration of Donald Trump is designed to reduce taxes for US companies.
In general, the positive dynamics of the US stock market remains.

Support and resistance levels
After Monday's index S & P500 updated the annual high near the mark of 2506.0, today the index of the second day is trading in a narrow range near this level.
The OsMA and Stochastic indicators on the daily, weekly, monthly charts are still on the buyers’ side.
Short-term downward correction is possible to support levels 2496.0 (EMA144), 2491.0 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart). Deeper correction is allowed to the support level 2472.0 (EMA200 and the bottom line of the uplink on the 4-hour chart).
The upward trend in the S & P500 index is maintained as long as it trades above the key support level of 2378.0 (EMA200 on the daily chart).
Only the breakdown of the support level of 2348.0 (the Fibonacci level of 23.6% of the correction for growth since February 2016) could significantly increase the risk of the S & P500 returning to a downtrend.
About the reversal of the bullish trend is not yet talking. There is a possibility of further growth.
Support levels: 2496.0, 2491.0, 2472.0, 2463.0, 2450.0, 2433.0, 2418.0, 2378.0, 2348.0
Resistance levels: 2506.0

Trading Scenarios

Sell Stop 2502.0. Stop-Loss 2507.0. Objectives 2496.0, 2491.0, 2472.0, 2463.0, 2450.0, 2433.0, 2418.0, 2378.0
Buy Stop 2507.0 Stop-Loss 2502.0. Objectives 2525.0, 2550.0

AUD/USD: The Australian dollar is leading the decline against the US dollar
21/09/2017
Current dynamics

As Philip Lowie, the RBA's governor, said today, the bank expects "a gradual decline in the unemployment rate, which should help accelerate the growth of salaries", adding that "based on the current situation, we are aimed at further reducing unemployment and are on the way to the middle of the target inflation range 2% -3%”.
According to Lowie, the RBA's optimistic forecasts regarding inflation and GDP growth in 2018 look quite realistic. So, the GDP growth of Australia in 2018 should be 3.0%, unemployment will decrease, and the growth rate of wages should accelerate.
The minutes of the September 5 meeting of the RBA on Tuesday show that the scale of employment growth indicates that the economy of the country has overcome all the difficulties associated with changes in activity in the mining sector.
Nevertheless, today the Australian dollar – is in the leaders of decline against the US dollar. As you know, yesterday the Fed made it clear that it could raise interest rates again this year and next month it will start selling previously purchased treasury bonds. At the moment, the portfolio of assets of the Federal Reserve is about 4.5 trillion dollars, and reducing the balance of the Fed will be tantamount to tightening monetary policy.
The prospect of raising interest rates is negative for commodities, the price of which is expressed in US dollars. The probability of an increase in rates in 2017, according to the CME Group, is now more than 68% against 41% a week earlier.
Australia is the largest exporter of primary commodities, including iron ore, liquefied gas. The strategic partner of Australia and the buyer of its primary commodities is China.
Today, Standard & Poor's downgraded China's credit rating to A + from AA-. Now the S & amp; P rating corresponds to the Moody's rating, lowered in May, and the Fitch rating, which was lowered in 2013. And it also affects the Australian dollar, putting pressure on him.
We are waiting for data from the USA today. At 12:30 (GMT) a number of macro data will be published, including the weekly report of the US Department of Labor, which contains data on the number of initial applications for unemployment benefits. The result higher than expected indicates a weak labor market, which has a negative impact on the US dollar. The forecast is expected to grow to 300,000 from 284,000 in the previous period, which should negatively affect the dollar.
Nevertheless, the pressure on the AUD / USD pair in the absence of important news from this country is likely to remain until the end of the week.
*)An advanced fundamental analysis is available on the Tifia Forex Broker website at tifia.com/analytics

Support and resistance levels
The AUD/USD today broke through two important support levels of 0.8000 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart, EMA50 on the 4-hour chart, EMA200 on the weekly chart), 0.7950 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart) and develops a downward correction to the support level of 0.7905 ( EMA50 on the daily chart).
Deeper downward correction, while maintaining a general upward positive medium-term dynamics, is allowed up to the support level of 0.7850 (the Fibonacci level of 38.2% correction to the fall wave of the pair since July 2014, the minimum of wave is near 0.6830 level). Here, the bottom line of the ascending channel passes on the daily chart.
Despite today's decline, the pair AUD / USD keeps positive dynamics and grows in the upward channels on the daily and weekly charts, the upper limit of which runs near the level of 0.8160 (50% Fibonacci level).
The return above the level of 0.8000 will cause the resumption of purchases of the pair AUD / USD.
You can return to consideration of short positions in case of breakdown of the support level of 0.7850.
In case of breakdown of the support level 0.7800 (EMA144 on the weekly chart), the AUD / USD decline will accelerate with the target at the support level of 0.7700 (EMA200 on the daily chart, EMA50 on the weekly chart). The breakdown of the support level of 0.7460 (the Fibonacci level of 23.6%) will return the pair AUD / USD to the global downtrend beginning in July 2014.
Indicators OsMA and Stochastics on the 4-hour, daily, weekly charts were deployed to short positions.
Support levels: 0.7905, 0.7850, 0.7800, 0.7700
Resistance levels: 0.7950, 0.8000, 0.8050, 0.8120, 0.8160

Trading Scenarios

Sell in the market. Stop-Loss 0.7960. Take-Profit 0.7905, 0.7850, 0.7800
Buy Stop 0.7960. Stop-Loss 0.7930. Take-Profit 0.8000, 0.8050, 0.8100, 0.8120, 0.8160

XAU/USD: the price of gold has stopped falling
22/09/2017
Current dynamics

North Korea once again threatened to test a nuclear bomb, and again quotations of gold prices crawled up. Foreign Minister Li Yong-ho said on Thursday that his country could conduct the most powerful test of a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean. This threat came in response to a speech by President Donald Trump at the UN, which said that if the US or its allies were threatened, the United States could completely destroy North Korea.
Geopolitical tensions are one of the main factors in the growth of gold prices. And today the threat of a new aggravation of the geopolitical situation on the Korean peninsula outweighs another important fundamental factor - expectations of a further increase in the interest rate in the United States.
As you know, the Fed signaled on Wednesday that it still expects another increase in interest rates before the end of this year, and plans to begin a gradual reduction in its assets portfolio in October.
According to the CME, investors are currently assessing the likelihood of an increase in interest rates by the end of the year at about 70%, while as recently as last week - less than 40%.
Assets deemed reliable, such as the yen, franc, gold, came under pressure following Fed statements. Gold fell in price yesterday to 1290.00 dollars per ounce, approaching the minimum since the end of August.
With an increase in interest rates, precious metals, including gold, usually become cheaper, if the geopolitical situation at this time remains stable. Gold, which does not bring investment income and can not compete with more profitable assets, becomes cheaper, as the cost of borrowing for its acquisition and storage grows with an increase in the interest rate.
From the news for today we are waiting for the data from the USA. At 13:45 (GMT) will be published indices (preliminary values) of business activity in the manufacturing and service sectors of the US (for September). It is expected that the indices will come out with slight deviations from the values for the previous month. Nevertheless, the values of the indicators are well above 50, which is a positive factor for the US dollar. If the data prove to be better than the forecast values, the dollar will get a good support, including in the pair XAU/USD.
*)An advanced fundamental analysis is available on the Tifia Forex Broker website at tifia.com/analytics

Support and resistance levels
Since the opening of today and during the Asian session, the price of gold has resumed growth.
At the beginning of the European session, the pair XAU / USD is trading near the 1295.00 mark, through which the support level passes and the EMA50 line on the daily chart.
Indicators OsMA and Stochastics on different time frames show a multidirectional dynamics.
It is likely that in the short term, with a decrease in geopolitical tensions, the growth of the dollar will continue, and the price of gold will remain under pressure, again until the next aggravation of the geopolitical situation in the world and on the Korean Peninsula.
The fundamental background (tightening of monetary policy in the US) creates the prerequisites for further reduction of XAU / USD.
In the case of consolidation below the level of 1295.00, the target of the decline will be support levels 1277.00 (Fibonacci level 61.8% correction to the wave of decline since July 2016), 1262.00 (EMA200, the lower limit of the ascending channels on the daily and weekly charts).
The breakdown of the key support level of 1248.00 (the Fibonacci level of 50.0% of the correction to the fall wave from July 2016, EMA144 on the weekly chart) will provoke further decline in the pair XAU / USD and its return to the downtrend.
The alternative scenario is connected with the breakdown of the nearest resistance level of 1304.00 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart). In case of fastening above the resistance level 1312.00 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart), the growth of the pair XAU / USD will resume with the nearest target of 1357.00 (annual highs). The more distant goal is at the level of 1370.00 (the beginning of the wave of decline since July 2016 and the Fibonacci level of 100% and the upper limit of the rising channel on the weekly chart). In this case, the upward trend of XAU / USD, which began in January 2016, will resume.
Support levels: 1295.00, 1277.00, 1270.00, 1262.00, 1248.00
Resistance levels: 1304.00, 1312.00, 1340.00, 1350.00, 1357.00

Trading Scenarios

Sell Stop 1289.00. Stop-Loss 1302.00. Take-Profit 1277.00, 1270.00, 1262.00, 1260.00, 1248.00
Buy Stop 1302.00. Stop-Loss 1289.00. Take-Profit 1304.00, 1312.00, 1340.00, 1350.00, 1357.00

EuroStoxx50: after the elections in Germany
25/09/2017
Current dynamics

After the elections in Germany, held last weekend, the euro is traded with a decrease of 0.4%, to 1.1880. Investors analyze the results of the elections, and the auctions on the world stock exchanges are multidirectional.
Angela Merkel secured a fourth term in the Chancellor's chair, however, the party headed by her "Christian Democratic Union" (CDU) will receive 33% of the vote in the German parliament, this is the weakest result for this party since 1949. None of the parties won a parliamentary majority. The surprise was that the extremely right-wing party "Alternative for Germany" won seats in the parliament. Now the victorious Christian Democratic Union will be forced to form a coalition, most likely with the Free Democratic Party and the "green", which will create some political uncertainty in Germany, whose economy is the largest in the entire economy of the Eurozone.
The yield of 10-year government bonds in Germany fell to 0.445% today from the level of 0.450%, noted on Friday. The StoxxEurope600 index gained 0.1% at the beginning of the session, the DAX30 and EuroSTOXX50 indexes also slightly increased at the beginning of the European session. All European stock indexes, in contrast to the British FTSE100 and American indices, retain positive dynamics.
Later today (13:00 GMT) ECB President Mario Draghi should make a speech. It is unlikely that he will say anything new about the monetary policy in the Eurozone. Although, there may be surprises. Mario Draghi is famous for being able to develop markets. Most likely, Mario Draghi will again decide to support the European stock market and remind us of the ECB's inclination to soft politics.
A number of representatives of the Federal Reserve are also scheduled for today. Among the speakers - the head of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, William Dadley, the head of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and a member of the Committee on Open Markets of the Federal Reserve Bank Charles Evans.
By the way, the representative of the Federal Reserve John Williams said on Friday that the Fed is likely to raise the key rate in December, but it will very slowly raise the key rate over the next two years, as well as the fact that the neutral interest rate, in his opinion, is at 2.5%.

Support and resistance levels
After in May the EuroStoxx50 index reached the annual maximum near the 3680.0 mark, a downward correction began against the background of the strengthening of the euro. The EuroStoxx50 index fell to the level of 3400.0. In the current month, the EuroStoxx50 index was able to completely "beat off" the losses of the previous two months, and at the moment EuroStoxx50 is trading near the 3535.0 mark.
Nevertheless, the negative dynamics of the EuroStoxx50 index may again return.
Indicators OsMA and Stochastics on the 4-hour, daily charts turned to short positions. Sooner or later, the ECB will have to return to consideration of the issue of curtailing the QE program in the Eurozone, and this is a negative strong fundamental factor.
While the EuroStoxx50 is trading above the 3485.0 support level (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart, EMA50 on the daily chart), bulls can be calm.
The first signal for the trend reversal and the opening of short positions will be a breakdown of the support level of 3505.0 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart).
The breakdown of support levels 3415.0 (EMA200 on the daily chart), 3400.0 will be a turning point in the development of the bearish trend. The immediate goal of further decline is the support level of 3295.0 (the Fibonacci level of 38.2% of the downward correction to the growth wave from July 2016 and from the level of 2675.0 and the bottom line of the descending channel on the daily chart).
The scenario for growth is related to the breakdown of the local resistance level of 3555.0 and further strengthening with the target at the level of 3590.0.
For now, short positions are preferable until the situation around the QE program becomes clear.
Support levels: 3505.0, 3485.0, 3440.0, 3415.0, 3400.0
Resistance levels: 3555.0, 3590.0, 3610.0, 3680.0, 3700.0

Trading Scenarios

Sell Stop 3518.0. Stop-Loss 3555.0. Take-Profit 3505.0, 3485.0, 3440.0, 3415.0, 3400.0
Buy Stop 3555.0. Stop-Loss 3518.0. Take-Profit 3590.0, 3610.0, 3680.0, 3700.0

Brent: oil prices jumped on Monday
26/09/2017
Overview and dynamics

Yesterday, oil prices rose sharply. According to analysts of the oil market, several factors contributed to this.
The first reason is the strengthening of geopolitical tensions in the Middle East in connection with the referendum in Iraqi Kurdistan. Prices jumped after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened to close the oil pipeline, through which Kurdistan oil is supplied to the world market.
On the other hand, although the meeting of OPEC and a number of other oil-producing countries held on Friday did not lead to an extension of the contract for limiting production, a statement was made about a higher degree of compliance with quotas. In addition, a number of countries signaled their readiness to extend the deal to reduce production in 2018.
As a result, on Monday, oil prices reached a maximum in more than two years. The barrel of Brent crude oil was worth 58.55 dollars at the end of yesterday's trading day.
At the auctions in Asia today oil continued to go up. Brent crude futures for ICE Futures Europe rose 0.08% to 59.07 dollars per barrel. The spot price for Brent crude oil reached 58.80, the highest level in the last two years.
However, at the beginning of the European session, the price of oil is falling, including because of the strengthening dollar.
Today at 16:45 (GMT), the speech of the head of the Federal Reserve, Janet Yellen will start in Cleveland, and on Thursday the vice-chairman Stanley Fischer will speak. Last week, the Fed hinted that this year it could raise rates again. According to the CME Group, investors estimate the probability of an interest rate increase in December at 72.8%. And now investors are hoping to get new information about the course of monetary policy of the Fed.
Today (at 20:30 GMT), the American Petroleum Institute (API) will publish its weekly report on oil and petroleum products in the US. If the API report indicates a reduction in stocks, then oil prices will receive additional support. The official weekly report from the US Department of Energy on oil and petroleum products will be released on Wednesday (14:30 GMT). The stock is expected to grow by 2.296 million barrels, which should also support prices.

Support and resistance levels
The price for Brent crude oil broke yesterday the upper limit of the upward channel on the daily chart and reached the level of 58.45 (highs of 2017). The last time at these levels the price was two years ago, in July 2015. The price has been growing for the third month in a row, keeping positive dynamics above the key support level of 54.70 (EMA200 on the weekly chart). Here, the upper limit of the descending channel passes on the weekly chart.
The decline scenario will be associated with a return to the level 54.70 inside the downlink on the weekly chart, the lower limit of which passes near the level of 36.05 (the Fibonacci level of 23.6% correction to the decline from the level of 65.30 from June 2015 to the absolute minimums of 2016 near the 27.00 mark) . The breakdown of support levels 51.50 (EMA200 on the daily chart), 50.70 (Fibonacci level 61.8%) raises the risks of price return to the bearish trend with targets at support levels of 50.00 (lows in August), 48.75, 48.00, 46.20 (50% Fibonacci level) 44.50 (lows of the year), 41.70 (Fibonacci level 38.2%), 36.05 (bottom line of the descending channel on the weekly chart).
So far, positive dynamics have prevailed. Technical indicators (OsMA and Stochastic) on the daily, weekly, monthly charts are on the buyers’ side.
The next medium-term goal in the case of continued growth will be the resistance level of 62.00, near which the lines EMA144, EMA200 pass on the monthly chart.
Support levels: 58.00, 57.45, 56.75, 55.85, 55.00, 54.70, 53.75, 51.50, 50.70, 50.00
Resistance levels: 58.45, 59.00

Trading Scenarios

Sell Stop 57.70. Stop-Loss 58.20. Take-Profit 57.45, 56.75, 55.85, 55.00, 54.70, 53.75, 51.50, 50.70, 50.00
Buy Stop 58.20. Stop-Loss 57.70. Take-Profit 58.45, 59.00, 60.00

S&P500: dollar and indices grow
27/09/2017
Current dynamics

Today, the financial markets are growing dollar and the resumption of growth in US stock indices. The dollar strengthened after comments from US Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen, which increased the likelihood of another increase in interest rates. On Tuesday, Yellen spoke in support of the central bank's plan to raise interest rates.
"It would be unreasonable to pursue an unchanged monetary policy until inflation returned to 2%," Yellen said. According to the CME Group, investors estimate the likelihood of a rate hike in December at 83.1%, while the previous day it was 72.3%. Nevertheless, the propensity of investors to buy risky assets is growing again. Yield of 10-year US government bonds rose to 2.290% from yesterday's level of 2.229%.
Long-term soft monetary policy has become an important fundamental factor for the growth of the stock market. Now many investors believe that the stock market is able to cope with the gradual tightening of the policy.
As the head of the Federal Reserve, Janet Yellen, said earlier, the possibility of a gradual tightening of monetary policy speaks about the strength of the American economy. One increase in rates is not enough to break the bull market. More important factors are the strong corporate reports of US companies, the stable state of the labor market and the growth of the US GDP.
Today, the administration of the US president and the Republican leaders in the congress will publicize a preliminary tax reform plan that provides for tax cuts on citizens and the US company, and will allow the return of trillions of dollars invested abroad, Trump said. Until now, stock markets have ignored the failures of the administration of the US president, relying mainly on the strong reports of US companies and macro statistics. If the preliminary tax reform plan is adopted in the congress, it will also support the US stock market. Donald Trump's speech should begin at 21:00 (GMT).
In general, the positive dynamics of the US stock market remains.

Support and resistance levels
Last week, the S & P500 index updated its annual high near the 2507.0 mark, however, it subsequently fell against the backdrop of an escalation of tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
Today, the index resumed growth, trading at the beginning of the European session near the mark of 2500.0.
In general, the positive dynamics of the index remains. About the reversal of the bullish trend is not yet talking. There is a possibility of further growth in the ascending channels on the daily and weekly charts. In the event of a breakdown of the local resistance level of 2507.0 (annual and absolute highs), the index's growth will continue.
In case of a breakdown of the short-term support level 2496.5 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart), a downward correction is possible to the support levels 2478.0 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart), 2472.0 (EMA50 and the middle of the uplink on the daily chart).
The medium-term upward movement of the S & P500 index is maintained as long as it trades above the key support level of 2386.0 (EMA200 on the daily chart).
Only the breakdown of the support level of 2348.0 (the Fibonacci level of 23.6% of the correction for growth since February 2016) could significantly increase the risk of the S & P500 returning to a downtrend.
Support levels: 2496.5, 2478.0, 2472.0, 2463.0, 2450.0, 2433.0, 2418.0, 2378.0, 2348.0
Resistance Levels: 2507.0

Trading Scenarios

Sell Stop 2492.0. Stop-Loss 2504.0. Objectives 2490.0, 2478.0, 2472.0, 2463.0, 2450.0, 2433.0, 2418.0, 2378.0
Buy Stop 2504.0 Stop-Loss 2492.0. Objectives 2507.0, 2510.0

NZD/USD: RBNZ keeps rate at current level
28/09/2017
Current dynamics

As expected, the RB of New Zealand maintained the current interest rate at the current level of 1.75%. The RBNZ meeting under the leadership of the new manager Grant Spencer took place after the general elections in New Zealand, which did not bring an obvious result. Previously published GDP data showed only a moderate recovery in the country's economic growth after six months of slowdown. At the same time, inflation in the second quarter weakened to 1.7%, which is below the midpoint of the target range of the central bank. If, however, New Zealand begins a period of political instability, then this will have the most negative impact on the national currency of the country.
The New Zealand dollar reacted rather weakly to the decision of the RBNZ. At the same time, the US dollar continues to grow in the foreign exchange market, including against the New Zealand dollar. The next round of escalation of geopolitical tensions on the Korean Peninsula negatively affects the quotations of currencies in the Asia-Pacific region, including the quotations of the New Zealand dollar.
Yesterday, the US Republican Party published a draft tax reform, which, according to their calculations, will revitalize the economy, and this week's speech by representatives of the Fed increased investor confidence that interest rates will be raised again in December. The index of the dollar WSJ, which estimates its rate to a basket of 16 currencies, increased by 0.1%, to the level of 86.59 after rising by 0.5% on Wednesday, when it achieved the maximum three-day growth since the beginning of the year.
The yield on 10-year US Treasury bonds rose to 2.352% from 2.309% on Thursday, while earlier it showed the highest daily gain since March, indicating an increase in the propensity of investors to buy more risky assets of the US stock market. The growth in the yield of US bonds is accompanied, as a rule, by the growth of quotations of the US dollar.
Investors began to assess the higher probability of a third rate increase this year, which supports the dollar, as this increases the profitability of US assets. According to the CME Group, investors are now expecting an increase in Fed rates by the end of this year with a probability of 83%.
Of the news for today, we are waiting for the publication at 12:30 and 13:30 (GMT) of a block of important macro statistics for the US, including the inflation index of personal consumption expenditure and annual GDP data for the second quarter (adjusted values). It is expected that GDP growth in the second quarter was 3% (in annual terms), which will support the US dollar.
Also at 13:45 and 14:15, representatives of the Federal Reserve Bank Esther George and Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer will speak. It is likely that they will support the head of the Fed and will also speak in favor of a third interest rate increase this year that will also support the dollar.

Support and resistance levels
The NZD / USD pair declines for the fourth consecutive day after the elections in New Zealand last weekend.
At the beginning of the European session, the pair NZD / USD is trading near a strong support level of 0.7180 (EMA200 on the daily chart), restraining the pair from further decline.
In case of breakdown of this level, the NZD / USD pair decline will accelerate.
The immediate goal of further decline is the support level of 0.7080 (the lower boundary of the descending channel on the daily chart and EMA200 on the monthly chart).
The break of 0.6860 (the Fibonacci level of 23.6% and the lower limit of the range between 0.7550 and 0.6860) will mean the end of the upward correction, which began in September 2015, and return to the downtrend.
An alternative scenario involves a return to the zone above the resistance levels of 0.7240
(the Fibonacci level of 38.2% of the upward correction to the global wave of decline of the pair from the level of 0.8800, which began in July 2014, here are the minimums of December 2016), 0.7250 (EMA200 on the 1-hour graph0, 0.7265 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart) and the resumption of growth in the uplink on the weekly chart, the upper limit of which passes near the level of 0.7850 (Fibonacci level 61.8%).
The nearest target in case of continuation of growth will be resistance level 0.7430 (September highs and the top line of the descending channel on the daily chart).
Indicators OsMA and Stochastics on the 4-hour, daily, weekly charts were deployed to short positions.
Support levels: 0.7200, 0.7180, 0.7100, 0.7080
Resistance levels: 0.7210, 0.7240, 0.7250, 0.7265

Trading Scenarios

Sell Stop 0.7160. Stop-Loss 0.7240. Take-Profit 0.7100, 0.7000, 0.6900
Buy Stop 0.7240. Stop-Loss 0.7160. Take-Profit 0.7265, 0.7300, 0.7400, 0.7430, 0.7500, 0.7550

GBP/USD: pound decreased on data
29/09/2017
Current dynamics

As Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said in an interview with the BBC, the central bank of the UK will raise the key interest rate if the UK economy continues to move the current rate.
"If the economy will move the current course, then it may be appropriate to raise rates", - said Carney. This increase, in his opinion, could take place quite soon.
The pound reacted rather weakly to this statement of Mark Carney. Moreover, at the beginning of the European session, the pound declined after the published data showed that the current account deficit of the UK's balance of payments in the second quarter significantly exceeded the forecast (16.00 billion pounds), reaching 23.2 billion pounds. At the same time, GDP growth in the second quarter was confirmed at 0.3%.
Nevertheless, the pair GBP / USD closes the month and the third quarter with a gain, despite the decline for the second week in a row.
The expectation of an early interest rate increase in the UK contributes to the purchase of the pound and the growth of its quotes. Earlier, the Bank of England repeatedly signaled that it was preparing for the first more than a 10-year rate hike to limit inflation. Many economists expect that the first increase may take place in November.
For today, another performance by Mark Carney (14:45 GMT) is planned. From it, participants in financial markets are waiting to clarify the situation regarding the future policy of the central bank of Great Britain. If Mark Carney touches on the topic of monetary policy and confirms the plans of the Bank of England for a rapid increase in the interest rate in the UK, the pound will once again strengthen in the currency market, including the GBP / USD pair.
Of the news for today, we also expect data from the United States. At 12:30 (GMT) will be published a report of the US Department of Commerce with data on personal income / expenditure of Americans and price indices (for August). If the data prove to be better than forecasted values (slight growth of indicators is expected), the dollar will grow on the foreign exchange market.

Support and resistance levels
Today, the GBP / USD pair continues its corrective decline after active growth at the beginning of the month. Yesterday, GBP / USD broke the short-term support level 1.3437 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart) and continues to decline to support levels 1.3235 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart), 1.3210 (Fibonacci level 23.6% correction to the pair GBP / USD decline in wave , which began in July 2014 near the level of 1.7200).
Indicators OsMA and Stochastics on the 1-hour, 4-hour, daily charts were deployed to short positions.
The breakdown of these levels will cause a deeper correction to the support level of 1.3135 (the bottom line of the ascending channel on the daily chart).
While the pair GBP / USD is trading above support level 1.2960 (EMA200 on the daily chart), the positive mid-term dynamics of the GBP / USD remains.
In case of breakdown of the local resistance level 1.3437, the resumption of growth is likely with the targets of 1.3260 (highs of August), 1.3460 (July and September highs of 2016 reached after the referendum on Brexit), 1.3630, 1.3780 (EMA144 on the weekly chart).
Support levels: 1.3375, 1.3235, 1.3210, 1.3135, 1.3100, 1.3020, 1.2960, 1.2900
Resistance levels: 1.3437, 1.3500, 1.3630, 1.3780

Trading Scenarios

Sell Stop 1.3345. Stop-Loss 1.3410. Take-Profit 1.3300, 1.3235, 1.3210, 1.3135, 1.3100, 1.3020, 1.2960, 1.2900
Buy Stop 1.3410. Stop-Loss 1.3345. Take-Profit 1.3437, 1.3500, 1.3630, 1.3780
