EUR/USD: The ECB is concerned about the strengthening of the euro
18/08/2017
Current dynamics

Despite the decline in the dollar, the pair EUR / USD remains under pressure (so far in the short term). Published on Thursday, the minutes of the July meeting of the ECB pointed out that the central bank is concerned about the strengthening of the single European currency this year.
"There were fears about the risk of excessive growth of the euro in the future", - so it was said in the minutes.
The strengthening of the Euro-currency negatively affects the economy of the Eurozone, as it makes European goods less competitive abroad. Weak rates of inflation in the Eurozone also contribute to the ECB's prolonging the stimulus program for the Eurozone economy for at least six months.
As you know, the program QE in the Eurozone ends in December. Despite the fact that the Eurozone economy shows signs of stable growth, which is also due to the ECB, which pursues an extra soft monetary policy, inflation is still far below the target level of the ECB just below 2.0%.
At the same time, the dollar also remains under pressure after the minutes published on Wednesday from the July Fed meeting. Investors continue to assess the prospects for an increase in the Federal Reserve's key interest rate in December with a probability of below 40%.
The leadership of the US central bank still can not unanimously decide to raise rates in conditions of slow inflation. And this is a negative factor for the dollar.
Thus, the EUR / USD pair is currently in the grip of the need to maintain a low interest rate in the Eurozone and the Fed's hesitancy in the matter of monetary policy, which makes both currencies vulnerable from this point of view.
The US dollar, meanwhile, declined during the Asian session and at the beginning of the European session.
If we consider that today is the last trading day of the week, then in the second half of the US session, we should expect some strengthening of the US currency against the background of closing short positions on the dollar and fixing profits.
The news background is calm today. Volatility may intensify at the beginning of the US trading session, when at 12:30 (GMT) the consumer price index (CPI) in Canada (for July) is published.

Support and resistance levels
The pair EUR / USD is in a downward correction short-term trend since the beginning of August, when strong data was published from the US labor market.
Repeated attempts to test the support level 1.1690 (EMA144 on the 4-hour chart) have not yet led to its breakdown.
If the EUR / USD decline continues, the breakdown of the support level 1.1630 (EMA200 on 4-hour and weekly charts) will strengthen the risks of a return to the downtrend.
However, only in case of breakdown of the support level 1.1150 (EMA200 on the daily chart) will EUR/USD return to a downtrend.
Indicators OsMA and Stochastics do not give a clear signal.
In the alternative scenario and after the breakdown of the local resistance level 1.1780 (the Fibonacci retracement level of 38.2% of the corrective growth from the lows reached in February 2015 in the last wave of the global decline from 1.3900), the EUR / USD is likely to strengthen further. The growth targets will be the levels of 1.1835, 1.1890 (the highs of the year), 1.1950, 1.2050, 1.2180 (50% Fibonacci level).
Support levels: 1.1690, 1.1630
Resistance levels: 1.1780, 1.1835, 1.1890, 1.1910, 1.1950, 1.2050, 1.2180

Trading Scenarios

Sell in the market. Stop-Loss 1.1785. Take-Profit 1.1690, 1.1630, 1.1600, 1.1550
Buy Stop 1.1785. Stop-Loss 1.1710. Take-Profit 1.1835, 1.1890, 1.2000, 1.2050, 1.2100, 1.2180

DJIA: the decline continues
21/08/2017
Current dynamics

After Thursday, Wal-Mart Stores and Cisco Systems reported on the results, their shares fell significantly, pulling the Dow Jones Industrial Average, which dropped 1.2% (274 points) to 21751 points. This was the most significant decline since May 2017. The shares of all 30 companies, traded in DJIA, and all 11 main sectors in the S & P500 index fell.
A portion of the disappointing financial statements of companies, which include large retailers and giants of the technology sector, as well as the terrorist attack in Spain, provoked the strongest intraday drop in the major US stock indices, which was the second this month.
On Monday, there is a continued decline in major US stock indexes, including DJIA. Investors' attention this week will be focused on comments by representatives of world central banks, including Fed Chairman Janet Yellen and ECB President Mario Draghi.
In general, the negative mood of investors, the tendency to exit from risky assets and the withdrawal of funds into safe assets prevail. Thus, the yield of 10-year US bonds rose to 2.202% from 2.196%, gold quotes also remain propped up after last Friday the price of gold exceeded the annual maximum and the mark of 1300.00 dollars per ounce for a short time.
If today the decline in indices continues, it will be the third consecutive week of falling indices. The news background today for the US stock market, in general, is neutral.
Low trading volumes and investor caution on the eve of the Jackson Hole conference increase the likelihood of a short-term spike in volatility and a return of the price to the current range.

Support and resistance levels
Having broken through the important short-term support levels 21825.0 (EMA144 on the 4-hour chart), 21755.0 (EMA200), DJIA found today support at the level of 21650.0 (EMA50 on the daily chart).
The predominant negative short-term dynamics. Indicators OsMA and Stochastics on the 4-hour, daily, weekly charts went to the side of sellers.
Probably the continuation of the correction decrease to the level of support 21500.0 (the bottom line of the ascending channel on the daily chart).
In case of resumption of growth and consolidation above the level of 21825.0 (EMA144 on the 4-hour chart), the DJIA will move towards the recent absolute maximum near the level of 22177.0.
If the decline continues, then after the breakdown of the support level of 21500.0, the target may be the support level of 20630.0 (Fibonacci level of 23.6% correction to the wave growth from the level of 15660.0 after recovery in February of this year to the collapse of the markets since the beginning of the year.The maximum of this wave and the level Fibonacci 0% is near the mark of 22000.0). Through the level 20630.0 also passes EMA200 on the daily chart. This level, therefore, is key to the bullish trend of DJIA.
Support levels: 21710.0, 21650.0, 21500.0, 21300.0, 21000.0, 20630.0
Resistance levels: 21770.0, 21840.0, 21950.0, 22060.0, 22177.0, 22300.0

Trading Scenarios

Buy Stop 21785.0. Stop-Loss 21600.0. Take-Profit 21825.0, 21950.0, 22060.0, 22177.0, 22300.0
Sell Stop 21600.0. Stop-Loss 21785.0. Take-Profit 21500.0, 21300.0, 21000.0, 20630.0

USD/CAD: the US dollar is recovering
22/08/2017
Current dynamics

During today's Asian session and at the beginning of the European session, the US dollar is restoring its positions in the foreign exchange market. In recent days, both domestic political uncertainty in the US, as well as ambiguous US economic indicators, have reduced the hopes of investors who are betting on the growth of the dollar that the Federal Reserve will implement the third rate hike this year. According to interest rate futures, on Monday, market participants assessed the likelihood of further increases in US Fed rates this year at 40% versus 43% last month.
From 24 to 26 August in Jackson Hole (USA) will host an annual economic conference, organized by the Fed, which will address the heads of the world's largest central banks. In the center of attention – is the speech of the head of the US Federal Reserve, Janet Yellen. She is expected to point out how the management of the central bank assesses the situation in the country's economy, and what are the prospects for further tightening of monetary policy in the US. If she makes any hints about the possibility of another interest rate hike by the end of the year, despite the low inflation in the US, the dollar will significantly strengthen in the foreign exchange market.
Meanwhile, the Canadian dollar on Monday rose slightly against the US dollar, which was down against the major currencies. The strengthening of the Canadian currency was also due to the reduction in the difference in the yields of government bonds of Canada and the United States.
Today, the US dollar is growing, restoring positions, which is also reflected in the growth of USD / CAD. Today its dynamics can be affected by the publication (at 12:30 GMT) of data on retail sales in Canada for June.
The index is published monthly by Statistics Canada and estimates the total amount of retail sales. This index is often considered an indicator of consumer confidence and reflects the state of the retail sector in the short term. The growth of the index is usually a positive factor for CAD, the decline in the index will negatively affect CAD.
A slight, almost zero, growth is expected (+ 0.3% vs. + 0.6% in May). If the data is even weaker, the Canadian dollar will fall in the foreign exchange market, including the USD / CAD pair.
*)An advanced fundamental analysis is available on the Tifia Forex Broker website at tifia.com/analytics

Support and resistance levels
Late last month, the pair USD / CAD reached its next annual low near support level 1.2420 and returned to the range located between 1.2490 (EMA200) and 1.2740 (EMA144 on the weekly chart, Fibonacci level of 38.2% of the downward correction to the pair's growth in the global ascending Trend since September 2012 and the level of 0.9700). Near the level of 1.2740 also passes the top line of the descending channel on the daily chart and EMA200 on the 4-hour chart.
In case of consolidation above the level of 1.2635 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart), the USD / CAD growth will resume with the target of 1.2740. A more distant goal is the level of 1.3120 (EMA50 on the weekly chart, EMA200 on the daily chart and the December lows).
The OsMA and Stochastic indicators on the 4-hour and weekly charts turned to long positions.
If the pair continues to decline, the USD / CAD will go to support level 1.2490 (EMA200 on the weekly chart).
The breakdown of support levels 1.2170 (50% Fibonacci level), 1.2030 (EMA200 on the monthly chart) will finally break the long-term bullish trend of the pair USD / CAD, which began in September 2012.
Support levels: 1.2565, 1.2490, 1.2420, 1.2170, 1.2030
Resistance levels: 1.2605, 1.2635, 1.2700, 1.2740, 1.2785, 1.2800, 1.2860, 1.2920, 1.3015, 1.3120, 1.3200

Trading Scenarios

Buy Stop 1.2610. Stop-Loss 1.2565. Take-Profit 1.2635, 1.2700, 1.2740, 1.2785, 1.2800, 1.2860, 1.2920 Sell Stop 1.2565. Stop-Loss 1.2610. Take-Profit 1.2500, 1.2400, 1.2170

NZD/USD: New Zealand economic growth forecasts revised
23/08/2017
Current dynamics

According to a report published on Tuesday on economic and financial conditions in New Zealand, forecasts for the growth of the New Zealand economy were revised with a slight decrease.
Finance Minister Stephen Joyce said that in the next four years, the average growth rate of New Zealand's GDP could reach 3%, whereas earlier it was forecasted an average annual growth rate of 3.1%.
The New Zealand dollar is actively declining since the beginning of August. Over the past two days, the NZD / USD pair has declined by about 100 points or by 1.3%.
This is also promoted by the growth of quotations of the US dollar on the eve of the economic conference in Jackson Hole, which will be held on August 24-26. The conference will feature the heads of the world's leading central banks. From the chairman of the Fed, Janet Yellen is waiting for statements in favor of a third increase in interest rates in the US for the current year.
The dollar fell more than 7% this year, it will have a significant growth space if the Fed's rhetoric points to their tendency to tighten monetary and credit policy.
The growth of the US dollar is also facilitated by the fact that investors are less concerned about the tensions between the US and North Korea, as well as political uncertainty in Washington. Yesterday's comments by Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House of Representatives of the US Congress, and Mitch McConnell, leader of the republican majority in the Senate, that the tax reform and raising the public debt limit will be implemented without difficulty, also contribute to improving investor sentiment towards the US currency.
Today (22:45 GMT) important data on New Zealand's foreign trade balance are published. A slight increase in the balance deficit in July (-200 million New Zealand dollars) is expected, which should negatively affect the New Zealand dollar with the confirmation of the forecast. Any change in the state of the foreign trade balance of New Zealand will support the New Zealand currency.

Support and resistance levels
The pair NZD / USD broke through important short-term support levels of 0.7325 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart), 0.7300 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart) and currently trades at the support level of 0.7240 (Fibonacci level of 38.2% of the upward correction to the global fall wave Pair from the level of 0.8800, which began in July 2014, the minimums of December 2016).
Indicators OsMA and Stochastics on the 4-hour, daily, weekly charts went to the side of sellers, signaling a strong negative impulse.
While NZD / USD is trading above the support level of 0.7165 (EMA200 on the daily chart), the upward dynamics is maintained. In case of breakdown at the level of 0.7165, a further decline to support levels of 0.6860 (Fibonacci level of 23.6% and a lower limit of the range located between the levels of 0.7550 and 0.6860) is possible. At the level of 0.6860 are also the minimums of December 2016 and May 2017. A break at the level of 0.6860 will mean the end of the upward correction, which began in September 2015, and a return to the downward trend.
The alternative scenario involves a return to the zone above the level of 0.7325 and the resumption of growth towards the annual maximum and the resistance level of 0.7550 (50% Fibonacci level and the upper limit of the rising channel on the weekly chart). Meanwhile, it is too early to talk about long positions on the NZD / USD pair. Only a breakdown at 0.7550 would mean the end of the global bearish trend.
Support levels: 0.7240, 0.7165
Resistance levels: 0.7255, 0.7300, 0.7325, 0.7455, 0.7500, 0.7550

Trading scenarios

Sell Stop 0.7205. Stop-Loss 0.7255. Take-Profit 0.7165
Buy Stop 0.7255. Stop-Loss 0.7205. Take-Profit 0.7300, 0.7325, 0.7455, 0.7500, 0.7550

Brent: prices stabilized in the range
24/08/2017
Current dynamics

On Thursday, oil prices showed a slight decrease, without leaving the range between the levels of 53.00, 51.00 dollars per barrel of Brent crude oil. A wider range is located between the levels of 53.40, 50.0 dollars per barrel, in which Brent crude is traded last month.
On Wednesday, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) of the US Energy Ministry reported a drop in commercial oil and gasoline reserves in the country. Thus, crude oil inventories fell by 3.3 million barrels (forecast was -3.375 million barrels), gasoline stocks fell by 1.2 million barrels last week (the forecast was 500,000 barrels). As a result, oil prices rose on Wednesday. Oil futures on the NYMEX closed up by 1.21% at $ 48.41 per barrel. The spot price for Brent crude at the end of yesterday's trading day was close to $ 52.20 per barrel, which is about $ 1.0 higher than the previous closing price.
Nevertheless, significant price increases are not observed, despite the risks of interruptions in the work of US refineries associated with the storm in the Gulf of Mexico, and the reduction in oil and oil products in the United States.
Prospects of growth in oil production in the US have a negative impact on oil prices. World oil supply in July, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA), rose by 520,000 barrels a day, even despite the arrangements in OPEC. Growth in the supply of oil has been observed for 3 consecutive months.
The activity of US oil companies is growing, significantly offsetting OPEC's efforts to reduce oil production and exports.
Today and tomorrow, investors will follow the speeches of the leaders of the Fed and the ECB at a conference in Jackson Hole on the plans of the central banks to tighten monetary policy. If Janet Yellen signals the markets about the possibility of another increase in the interest rate this year, the dollar will rise sharply in the foreign exchange market. Commodity prices, including oil, will come under pressure in this case.
On Friday at 5:00 pm (GMT), Baker Hughes, the oil service company, will publish a weekly report on the number of active drilling platforms in the US, which is an important indicator of the activity of the US oil sector and significantly affects the quotations of oil prices. If the number of installations increases again, this will also negatively affect oil prices.

Support and resistance levels
The price for Brent crude was in the range between levels of 53.40, 50.0 dollars per barrel in August. Despite today's decline, the price keeps positive dynamics above the key support levels of 50.70 (EMA50 on the weekly chart, as well as the Fibonacci level of 61.8% correction to the decline from the level of 65.30 from June 2015 to the absolute minimums of 2016 near the 27.00 mark), 50.90 (EMA200, EMA144 on the daily chart).
Indicators OsMA and Stochastics on the 4-hour, daily, weekly charts again moved to the side of buyers.
If the growth continues, the target will be 52.90 (EMA144 on the weekly chart), 53.40 (August highs), 54.70 (EMA200 on the weekly chart and the upper bound of the rising channel on the daily chart).
The scenario for the decline involves a breakdown at the level of 50.70. The targets then will be support levels of 50.00, 48.75, 48.00, 46.20 (50% Fibonacci level), 44.50 (lows of the year). A more distant target is the level 41.70 (the Fibonacci level of 38.2% and the lower border of the descending channel on the weekly chart), which increases the risks of price return in the bearish trend.
Support levels: 51.30, 50.90, 50.70, 50.00, 48.75, 48.00, 47.70, 46.20, 45.50, 44.50, 41.70
Resistance levels: 52.90, 53.40, 54.00, 54.70

Trading Scenarios

Sell by the market. Stop-Loss 52.35. Take-Profit 51.30, 50.90, 50.70, 50.00, 48.75, 48.00, 47.70, 46.20

EuroStoxx50: Stabilization before the speech of the head of the ECB
25/08/2017

Market participants took a wait-and-see approach on the eve of the Fed Chairman's statement (14:00 GMT) and the ECB head (19:00 GMT).
As follows from the minutes of the ECB meeting of July 20 published last week, the ECB's Governing Council is alarmed by the current strength of the euro. It is likely that the ECB will not rush to tighten the policy. Mario Draghi will try not to disturb the markets and is likely to favor the extension of the QE program and will be concerned about the high cost of the euro. In this case, the European indices will receive support and an incentive to resume growth.
*)An advanced fundamental analysis is available on the Tifia Forex Broker website at tifia.com/analytics

Levels of support and resistance
Since May, when the EuroStoxx50 index reached its annual maximum near the 3680.0 mark, a downward correction began. The EuroStoxx50 index fell to support level 3440.0 (EMA144 on the daily chart and Fibonacci level of 23.6% of the downward correction to the wave of growth since July 2016 and from the level of 2675.0).
In case of breakdown of the level 3440.0, the EuroSTOXX50 index will go to the key support level of 3400.0 (EMA200 on the daily chart). Breakdown of this level increases the risks of further decline and breakdown of the bullish trend.
The reduction targets then can be support levels 3295.0 (Fibonacci level 38.2%), 3265.0 (EMA200, EMA144 on the weekly chart).
The negative dynamics prevails. The European stock indexes are significantly influenced by the expectation of an early curtailment of the QE program in the Eurozone, which ends in December. Preferred short positions, until the situation on this issue is clarified, and the QE program will not be extended.
Support levels: 3440.0, 3400.0, 3325.0, 3295.0, 3265.0
Resistance levels: 3482.0, 3500.0, 3590.0, 3610.0, 3680.0, 3700.0

Trading Scenarios

Sell Stop 3430.0. Stop-Loss 3480.0. Take-Profit 3390.0, 3325.0, 3295.0, 3265.0
Buy Stop 3480.0. Stop-Loss 3430.0. Take-Profit 3550.0, 3590.0, 3610.0, 3680.0, 3700.0

NZD/USD: Janet Yellen did not mention the topic of raising rates
28/08/2017
Current dynamics

The head of the Fed, Janet Yellen, disappointed investors who were betting on the growth of the US dollar, after not speaking last Friday on the topic of monetary policy and not signaling a further increase in the rate.
The US dollar fell sharply on Friday, and 10-year US government bonds rose in price. Their yield on the basis of trading on Friday was 2.169% against 2.194% on Thursday. Gold futures on Friday in the US rose in price by 0.4%, to 1291 dollars per ounce.
Meanwhile, the New Zealand dollar became the leader of the decline last week after the New Zealand government lowered its forecast for economic growth for 2017-2018. Treasury Secretary Steven Joyce said that in the next four years, the average growth rate of New Zealand's GDP could reach 3%, whereas earlier it was forecasted an average annual growth rate of 3.1%.
The New Zealand dollar remains under pressure also on the eve of the forthcoming parliamentary elections in the country, scheduled for September 23. On September 27, the RBNZ regular meeting on monetary policy will be held.
In early August, RBNZ kept the current interest rate in New Zealand at the same level of 1.75%. The RBNZ stated that against the backdrop of "many uncertainties", monetary policy "will remain soft in the foreseeable future", but "can be adjusted accordingly". For a stable recovery of the New Zealand economy and rising inflation, "a lower New Zealand dollar rate is needed".
It is likely that the interest rate will remain at the current level of 1.75%, and in the RBNZ will once again confirm the bank's propensity to pursue a soft monetary policy, which will keep the pressure on the New Zealand currency.
For today, the economic calendar is empty. In the course of the American session, a correction is likely on the US dollar against its decline on Friday.

Technical analysis
In July, the pair NZD / USD reached a new annual high near the mark of 0.7550 (Fibonacci level of 50% and the upper limit of the rising channel on the weekly chart). However, the further growth of the pair stalled. In the future, as a result of the active decline, NZD / USD broke through the important support levels of 0.7300 (EMA200 on the weekly chart), 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, the low of December 2016) and decreased to the level of support 0.7190 (EMA144 on the daily chart).
The pressure on the New Zealand dollar and the NZD / USD pair persists.
Indicators OsMA and Stochastics on the daily, weekly charts went to the side of sellers.
It is likely that the decline will continue to levels 0.7190, 0.7165 (EMA200 on the daily chart).
In the case of breakdown at the level of 0.7165, a further decline to support levels of 0.6860 (Fibonacci level of 23.6% and a lower range between 0.7550 and 0.6860 levels) is possible. At the level of 0.6860 are also the minimums of December 2016 and May 2017. A break at the level of 0.6860 will mean the end of the upward correction, which began in September 2015, and a return to the downward trend.
The alternative scenario involves a return to the zone above the level of 0.7300 and a resumption of growth towards the annual maximum and the resistance level of 0.7550 (50% Fibonacci level and the upper limit of the uplink on the weekly chart).
Support levels: 0.7190, 0.7165
Resistance levels: 0.7300, 0.7320, 0.7455, 0.7500, 0.7550

Trading Scenarios

Sell Stop 0.7220. Stop-Loss 0.7260. Take-Profit 0.7190, 0.7165
Buy Stop 0.7260. Stop-Loss 0.7220. Take-Profit 0.7300, 0.7320, 0.7455, 0.7500, 0.7550

Brent: amid the hurricane in the US
29/08/2017
Current dynamics

The dollar continues to decline actively in the foreign exchange market. Nevertheless, on oil prices denominated in dollars, so far this fact is reflected little. Much more impact on oil prices had a storm in the US in the Houston area, a hurricane, later a "tropical storm", Harvey. Hurricane caused damage to oil refineries located in this part of the US, leading to their closure. Nearly 30% of the country's oil refining facilities are located on the Texas coast. Also, several offshore oil and gas platforms in the Gulf of Mexico were closed, accounting for about 22% of offshore oil production in the Gulf. Their closure will negatively affect oil demand in the US, and will also affect world oil prices. According to experts of the oil market, the negative impact of the consequences of the storm can drag on for several weeks, because it will take time to restart the refinery. Even yesterday, futures for Brent crude on ICE Futures fell 1.3% to 51.74 dollars per barrel. Today, oil prices continued to decline. The spot price for Brent crude at the beginning of today's European session was close to $ 51.00 per barrel.
Wednesday (14:30 GMT) will publish weekly data of the Ministry of Energy on oil reserves in the US. Decrease in demand from the refinery will probably cause an increase in inventories, since oil produced earlier and domestically is not being processed.
This can cause pressure on oil prices. Also today, it is worth paying attention to the weekly published data at 20:30 (GMT) on oil reserves from the American Petroleum Institute, which largely correlates with official data from the US Energy Ministry.

Support and resistance levels
The price of Brent oil broke through the short-term support level of 51.65 (EMA50 on the 4-hour chart, EMA200 on the 1-hour chart) and found support today at 50.95 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart, EMA144 on the daily chart, EMA50 on the weekly chart). Short-term negative dynamics prevails. In case of breakdown of the support levels of 50.95, 50.70 (EMA50 on the weekly chart, as well as the Fibonacci level of 61.8% of the 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 decline may last to the support level of 50.00 (lows August). Further objectives are support levels 48.75, 48.00, 46.20 (50% Fibonacci level), 44.50 (year lows). 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), which increases the risks of price return in the bearish trend.
Indicators OsMA and Stochastics on the 4-hour, daily, weekly charts again moved to the side of sellers.
In case of resumption of growth and breakdown of resistance level 52.20, the target will be 52.90 (EMA144 on the weekly chart), 53.40 (August highs), 54.70 (EMA200 on the weekly chart and the upper bound of the rising channel on the daily chart).
Support levels: 50.95, 50.70, 50.00, 48.75, 48.00, 47.70, 46.20, 45.50, 44.50, 41.70
Levels of resistance: 51.65, 52.20, 52.90, 53.40, 54.00, 54.70

Trading Scenarios

EUR/USD: the dollar continues to weaken
30/08/2017
Current dynamics

The sharp increase in EUR / USD, observed from the beginning of the year and, especially, in recent days, is connected both with the weakening of the dollar and with the continuing purchases of the euro. Heads of the Fed and the ECB did not make any hints at the last conference in Jackson Hole about the timing of further interest rate hikes. Investors regarded this as the Fed's tendency to soft monetary policy and that the current euro rate is satisfied with the ECB leaders.
Since the beginning of this year, the trade-weighted index of the euro has increased by more than 7%. This was the best result for the currency since its inception in 1999.
The single European currency receives support and against the backdrop of strengthening the economy of the Eurozone, which is often mentioned by the head of the ECB Mario Draghi. Euro since the beginning of the year it has added more than 14% against the dollar. The pair EUR / USD has reached the maximum mark since January 2015.
In the minutes of the July meeting of the ECB, there were "concerns about the rise in value (euro) in the future". Nevertheless, many economists believe that the ECB will begin to wind down the bond purchase program in December this year. The ECB simply does not have assets to buy.
At the same time, the ECB is in a difficult situation, since inflation is below the target level of just under 2.0%. Still, the ECB is likely to have to roll back the stimulus even if the outlook for inflation worsens.
In view of this, it is likely that the euro will continue to grow. Much will depend also on the pace at which the ECB will begin to reduce purchases of assets.
Today we are waiting for the data from the USA. Starting at 12:15 (GMT) a number of important macroeconomic indicators will appear, including the report on employment from ADP for August, data on spending on personal consumption in the US for the second quarter, annual GDP for the second quarter. In this period, a surge in volatility is expected in trading in financial markets, including the EUR / USD pair, which should be taken into account when opening trade positions at this time.
The GDP is expected to grow by 2.7% (against + 2.6% in the first quarter). If the forecast is justified, the dollar will receive support. Meanwhile, the prospect of further weakening of the USD and the growth of the EUR / USD pair remains.

Support and resistance levels
Despite the current corrective decline, the pair EUR / USD keeps positive dynamics, trading in the uplink on the daily chart.
Yesterday EUR / USD set another 4-month record, reaching 1.2070 and returning to the levels of December 2014.
If the growth resumes, the targets will be the levels of 1.2050 (low of July 2012), 1.2070, 1.2180 (the Fibonacci level of 50% of the corrective growth from the minimums reached in February 2015 in the last wave of global decline from 1.3900), 1.2370 (EMA200 on the monthly chart).
You can return to consideration of short positions in case of EUR / USD return to support level 1.1780 (Fibonacci level 38.2%). The breakthrough of support level 1.1620 (EMA200 on the weekly chart) increases the risk of EUR / USD returning to a downward global trend.
Support levels: 1.1890, 1.1835, 1.1780, 1.1720, 1.1670, 1.1620
Resistance levels: 1.2050, 1.2070, 1.2100, 1.2180

Trading Scenarios

Sell Stop 1.1920. Stop-Loss 1.1985. Take-Profit 1.1890, 1.1835, 1.1780, 1.1720, 1.1670, 1.1620
Buy Stop 1.1985. Stop-Loss 1.1920. Take-Profit 1.2050, 1.2070, 1.2100, 1.2180

S&P500: indexes rose against the backdrop of strong macro data
31/08/2017

Current dynamics

Strong macro data, received from the US at the beginning of today's US session, caused the growth of the main US stock indices. Nasdaq Composite climbed 18.00 points (0.30%), S & P500 rose 6.34 points (0.26%), DJIA started trading with an increase of 47.83 points (0.22%).
Personal incomes of Americans in July increased by 0.4% (the forecast was + 0.3%), personal expenses (indicator, estimating household costs) in July, adjusted for seasonal fluctuations, increased by 0.3% (forecast was +0, 4%). The increase in income raises the Americans' confidence in the government and economy.
Consumer spending accounts for the bulk of US GDP. Published on Thursday, the report showed that the annual growth in US GDP in the 2nd quarter of this year was 3%. Presented by the US Department of Commerce data indicate a positive momentum in the US economy in the second half of the year.
However, the price index for personal consumption expenditure (RFE), the Fed's preferred inflation indicator, rose 0.1% in July from the previous month after a lack of growth in June and a drop of 0.1% in May. Compared to the same period last year, the index grew by 1.4%, which is below the target level of the Fed, which is 2%.
Presented today by the US Department of Labor data indicate a steady increase in employment. Thus, the number of initial applications for unemployment benefits was 236,000 in the week of August 20-26. The number of primary applications has fluctuated historically in the past few years. They remain below 300,000 for 130 consecutive weeks, which is the longest period since 1970. As a percentage of labor, the indicator of layoffs is at the lowest level since the 1960s.
Secondary applications for unemployment benefits fell by 12,000 to 1.942 million. The consistently low level of applications for unemployment benefits is one of the signs of a strong labor market, which is approaching the state of maximum employment.
Against the backdrop of the data, US stock indexes rose. The growth of the indices continues, therefore, for the fourth trading session in a row, and for the seventh month in a row, which indicates the confidence of investors in the strength of the American economy.
At the same time, the weakness of inflationary pressures in the US economy makes it more difficult for the Federal Reserve to raise short-term interest rates before the end of the year.
Thus, the data presented today contribute to the further growth of the US stock market. It seems that the consequences of Hurricane Harvey, the geopolitical tensions associated with the terrorist attacks in Europe and the provocations with missile launches by North Korea are receding into the background. And, in general, the positive dynamics of the US stock market remains.

Support and resistance levels
Twice this month, pushing away from the support level of 2418.0 (the bottom line of the rising channel on the daily chart), the S & P500 index keeps positive dynamics and is traded in the uplink on the weekly chart. There is a possibility of further growth.
The alternative scenario will be connected with the breakdown of the short-term support level 2450.0 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart) and the continuation of the decline with the targets 2405.0 (June-July low and the lower limit of the uplink on the weekly chart), 2390.0 (March highs).
The upward trend in the S & P500 index is maintained as long as it trades above the key support levels of 2365.0 (EMA200 on the daily chart), 2325.0 (Fibonacci level of 23.6% correction to growth since February 2016). About the reversal of the bullish trend is not yet talking.
Support levels: 2450.0, 2433.0, 2418.0, 2405.0, 2390.0, 2365.0, 2325.0
Resistance levels: 2473.0, 2481.0, 2489.0, 2500.0

Trading Scenarios

Sell Stop 2454.0. Stop-Loss 2474.0. Objectives 2450.0, 2433.0, 2418.0, 2405.0, 2390.0, 2365.0, 2325.0
Buy Stop 2474.0. Stop-Loss 2454.0. Objectives 2481.0, 2489.0, 2500.0
