Fundamental Analysis for GBP/USD: September 27, 2016

PostPosted: Tue Sep 27, 2016 4:46 am
by Andrea ForexMart
The GBP/USD pair continues to trade at the bottom of its range, closing Monday’s trading session at 1.2950 points. The pair has not yet been able to make a proper recovery from its past price lows. The value of the currency pair will be most likely be decided by the impending adjustments between other currency pairs, particularly the expected EUR/GBP flows towards the end of September.

The GBP/USD pair had strong resistance levels at 1.3140 last week and has plummeted back to the support levels at 1.2950 after failing to go above the resistance level. The pair also momentarily decreased to 1.2910 before going back above 1.2950 points. Analysts are expecting the pair to be bullish for the rest of the daily trading session, possibly going up to the resistance level of 1.3000 points. If the pair manages to go over this resistance level then this would enable the pair to go in the range of 1.3080-3100, where a lot of sells happened during the last time the pair has reached this level.

However, it is still yet to be seen whether the pair would be able to maintain its current value at 1.2950, and could possible lead to a low on Friday at 1.2910 and then 1.2870. The EUR has a somewhat stable bullish stance, and the GBP is also expected to follow this bullish bearing of the EUR, since there are no major UK news that is expected to come out within this period.

The USD/JPY stopped at 0.665 or -0.66% at 100.306. Financiers of the Japanese yen attacked the US investors on Monday as they kept arguing about the BoJ's plan to change the monetary policy.

Despite of the preparation by many investors for the upcoming OPEC meeting and the first presidential debate of the United States, the Yen merchants awaits for the statement of the central bank Japanese Governor Kuroda. As he affirmed last Monday about the readiness of Nichigin regarding the usage of policy tool for the accomplishing the 2% target of inflation.

Furthermore, news released some information during the meeting by which the bank is confident that they will reach their goal, but there are some uncertainties which might leave an impact for accommodating the renewed policy.

The movement of price can be identified upon the debate outcome, considering that this is the major news at this moment.

In case that Mr.Trump got the victory then stocks presumably would be sold-off whereby investors of yen would be safe because it will settle on a higher position.

The sterling pound is currently experiencing a downward pressure following a decrease in oil prices. The buying interest for the GBP/USD went down a few pips to have a current value slightly above the 1.3200 range. The currency’s value dropped significantly from the last trade high and went down between the 1.3200 and and 1.2940 trading range during the last session. The GBP/USD has now dropped beneath the moving averages while the 50, 100, and 200 EMAs is still experiencing a steady decline. Resistance levels are now at 1.3000 points, while support levels are at 1.2900.

MACD levels are currently in the negative but remained in its previous level which indicates that sellers are now increasing their strength. The RSI is sustained at the neutral territory while oscillator levels are expected to decrease.

Sellers would be able to break below the 1.2900 range if the GBP/USD pair would be able to stay within the negative trading range. Analysts are also expecting more sideway trades in the next few hours.

Fundamental Analysis for USD/JPY: September 29, 2016

PostPosted: Thu Sep 29, 2016 9:24 am

The Japanese Yen decreased its value during Wednesday’s trading session, causing the USD/JPY pair to increase its value by up to 0.257 points or +0.26% to close at 100.67 points. The increased demand for commodity currencies and stocks was caused by a report that OPEC had already consented to decreasing its overall output, which last occurred in 2008. Reliable sources from OPEC are saying that the organization would be reducing its oil outputs to 32.5 million barrels daily from its current output of 33.24 million barrels a day.

The USD started strengthening earlier during the session after a recovery of European equity markets increased the risk appetites of investors which then removed their focus from the safe haven currency. The USD/JPY benefitted from the wide-range risk-on sentiment after the statement from OPEC increased activity in the US stock market.

The US market surged primarily due to statements from Fed and a highly durable US goods report. Core Durable Goods Orders data decreased by 0.4% in August, going way below the expected reading of 0.5% and even lower than the expected July reading of 1.3%. However, DGO data was slightly better than the estimate of -1 and went significantly lower than July’s prediction of 3.6%.

Fundamental Analysis for GBP/USD: September 30, 2016

PostPosted: Fri Sep 30, 2016 7:56 am

The GBP/USD pair continued to sway between 1.2950 and 1.3050 with no definite direction. This indefinite stance of the GBP/USD was mainly caused by an expected break on both sides by traders but has not since occurred. However, the value of the currency seemed to be controlled by EUR/GBP cash flows than any other fundamental factors.

The issues surrounding Deutsche Bank also added uncertainties to the GBP/USD pair’s stance. Deutsche Bank’s recent issues caused stock markets to have a risk-off sentiment and caused the S&P and other technical indexes to drop in value. Moreover, this has caused the pound to decrease its support levels at 1.2950 during the last trading session. Traders should take extra precautions as this might cause major shifts in the financial market and may also cause the USD to increase its value in general.

Speculators are expecting added volatility to the market due to the London fix, as well as a major news announcement from the UK government which is scheduled to be released today.

Fundamental Analysis for USD/CAD: September 30, 2016

PostPosted: Fri Sep 30, 2016 8:49 am
by Andrea ForexMart
The USD/CAD pair finished last trading session with its resistance levels resting at 1.3120 points and support levels at 1.3060 points, with the currency pair merely consolidating during the rest of the trading session since there was no major event that came from Canada yesterday. However, the GDP output for Canada will be released today, and this is expected to create a significant insight with regards to the performance of the Canadian economy. Canada’s economy has been steadily weakening during the past few months, although recent data from the nation has not yet been reflecting these changes.

However, the Bank of Canada has been hinting at this particular weakening in their economy, as well as the effect of lowering oil prices on the nation’s economic output and speculators are saying that this might ultimately lead to the BOC cutting back on its interest rates.

The USD/CAD continues to be bullish, mainly because of the current state of the Canadian economy. The USD strengthened as Deutsche Bank’s issues were brought up during the US session which caused the USD to rally at 1.3180 points and is now currently at 1.3153. Support levels are at 1.3060 while resistances are within the range of 1.3200 and 1.3255 points.

Fundamental Analysis for USD/JPY: October 3, 2016

The USD/JPY pair had a double-sided trading session on Friday after investors had split reactions to reports of an alleged settlement between the US Department of Justice and banking firm Deutsche Bank. The currency pair finished the last trading session at 101.318 points, going up by +0.29% or 0.288 points, with the USD finishing higher against the Japanese yen.

The BoJ’s decision on its monetary policy is now settled, and investors are now shifting their focus on investor sentiment when it comes to the general direction of the market. Analysts are expecting this particular trend to continue up until Monday’s session especially due to lack of important economic data to be released this week and because of limited speculations prior to the release of the US Non-Farm Payrolls Report this coming Friday.

Traders are now becoming particularly conscious with various economic events and news as they await the next announcement from Bank of Japan. The direction of the USD/JPY was influenced by the US Presidential Debate last week, the Deutsche Bank issue, and the statement released by the OPEC. For this week, speculators are expecting that the USD/JPY would most likely be influenced by the release of the US stock indices and the US jobs report which is set for the end of the week.

Fundamental Analysis for USD/CAD: October 3, 2016

PostPosted: Mon Oct 03, 2016 9:48 am
by Andrea ForexMart
The USD/CAD pair continued to trade within the broad range but market players are expecting the currency pair to be on the bullish side. The USD/CAD has proved to be one of the most volatile currency pairs with its 2-way movement but still in the wider trading range between 1.3050 and 1.3280. The release of the retail sales data last Friday turned out to be bad for the market, causing the CAD to decrease earlier this week. However, the bullish stance of the pair was still not able to break through the 1.3280 trading range.

The CAD then bounced back after the release of the OPEC statement, where oil producers have agreed to cut down oil production in order to increase oil prices. The currency pair then decreased in value. But Canada’s GDP data came out way above the expectations of investors, increasing the USD/CAD’s value but not enough to break through the bottom range, therefore settling within the neutral territory.

For this week, investors are awaiting the release of the Canadian employment report as well as the NFP report which is both slated to come out this Friday. Market players are expecting increased volatility once the mentioned economic data are released, together with the strengthening of the US economy due to an impending rate hike and the weakening of the Canadian economy due to the OPEC report.

Fundamental Analysis for USD/JPY: October 5, 2016

PostPosted: Wed Oct 05, 2016 6:19 am

The USD increased in relation to the Japanese yen during the last trading session, with the USD/JPY pair closing the session at 102.90 points after increasing by +1.24% or 1.265 points. The pair’s current value is its highest trading level since September 15, putting pressure on the currency pair to exceed its highest level last September 14 at 103.351 points.

The increase in the USD was mostly due to a significant increase in US Treasury yields. The positive ISM Manufacturing PMI data released on Monday triggered an upsurge in Treasury yields, increasing the possibility of an interest rate hike this coming December. Comments from Fed officials also strengthened the US dollar, after Federal Reserve President Jeffrey Lacker stated that there is a high probability that interest rates would be increased and that inflation rates would be put under control by increasing borrowing costs.

The CME Group’s FedWatch indicator also showed that traders are seeing a 63% chance that the Federal Reserve would increase its interest rates during its meeting on December 13-14, an 11% increase from the previous reading after the last Fed meeting on September. This was also cemented by comments from the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland’s President Loretta Mester, who called for higher interest rates from the Fed. Fed officials, however, are keeping their respective profiles low as of the moment.

Fundamental Analysis for USD/CAD: October 5, 2016

The recent increase in value of the USD has caused certain currency pairs like the USD/CAD to move forward with their bullish runs, a move that has long since been anticipated for the currency pair during the past week. The USD/CAD pair was able to push through its resistance levels at 1.3140 points, even going beyond 1.3170 where it was met with marginal resistance and went with support levels after a gain of 1.3140 points.

The Canadian and US trading sessions saw the USD increase its value by a significant margin and has caused the USD/CAD to go through the 1.3200 trading range, and market players are expecting that the pair will be able to reach its short-term targets at 1.3240 and 1.3280 with relative ease in just a few days. The currency pair is now at the support level of 1.3173 but is still expected to go above its present trading range.

Market players are now awaiting the release of the Canadian trade balance data and the ADP Non-Farm Employment data from the US. These economic data should give traders an idea of the relative strength of the two economies, as well as the possible impact of lowered oil prices on both countries. This could then lead to an increased volatility towards the end of the next trading session.
