Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (December 12 – 16, 2

Postby analyst75 » Sun Dec 11, 2016 8:26 am

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

Dominant bias: Bearish
This pair made some bullish attempt in the first few days of last week. Price rallied 300 pips, testing the resistance line at 1.0850, before it began a serious bearish movement. The bullish gains that were initially made last week, were eventually lost as price plummeted, to close just above the support line at 1.0550, after testing it. The market outlook is bearish for this week, since EUR is expected to continue its weakness while USD would continue gathering stamina. There is a possibility that EUR would reach parity with USD in a foreseeable future.

Dominant bias: Bullish
Last week, USD/CHF moved sideways from Monday till Wednesday, and then started moving upwards on Thursday, in conjunction with the extant bullish bias. Price tested the resistance level at 1.0200, and later closed below it. The outlook on the market is bullish for this week; price could reach the resistance levels at 1.0250 and 1.0300. However, it would also be seen that CHF is rallying versus some major currencies, which may prove to be a challenge for the bullishness of USDCHF.

Dominant bias: Bearish
Cable went upwards on Monday and Tuesday, reached the distribution territory at 1.2750. Price attempted to stay above that distribution territory, but the attempt was rejected as a southwards movement began, which eventually posed a threat to any bullish signal in the market. Price would move further southwards this week, going below one accumulation territory after the other. The outlook on GBP pairs is bearish for the week.

Dominant bias: Bullish
USD/JPY consolidated from December 5 to 7, and the rallied on December 8 and 9 (though the consolidation started earlier than that). Since the low of November 9, the market has gone up by 1400 pips, and this would continue. As it was forecast every week in the last three weeks, the outlook on this market, and as well as other JPY pairs, remains bullish. The supply levels at 115.50, 116.00 and 116.50 could be reached this week.

Dominant bias: Bullish
There is a conspicuous Bullish Confirmation Pattern on this trading instrument, albeit it is currently volatile. Price has recently swung up and down in the context of an uptrend, but the overall movement would be bullish. The targets for the week are supply zones at 122.00, 122.50 and 123.00, which were all tested last week. The major reason why price is generally bullish here is because there is a serious weakness in Yen, and as long as the weakness continues, EUR (which is weak on its own), would manage to keep on going upwards against it.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:
“Trading and markets have been a major part of my life for almost 60 years. Trading has been the means through which my family and I have received many blessings.” – Joe Ross
