    07.08.2014


    Fundamental analysis


    The pair EUR/USD is in the bears’ power on the background of the positive macroeconomic data from the United States. The ISM in the services sector came out much better than expected at around 58.7. It should be noted that the rate showed significant acceleration above the 12-month moving average in July. This release, together with the manufacturing sector data indicates a strong economic growth in the United States at the third quarter beginning.


    The GBP/USD has a quite weak reaction to the strong report on the UK Services PMI. The bulls stormed the resistance level of 1.6881, but the attempts were unsuccessful. As soon as the sell-off in the cross-rate EUR/GBP traders allowed to finish the day on a positive note.


    The battle between bulls and bears in the USD/JPY pair was won by the minimum on the background of the recent sales in the global stock markets which took down Japanese stock market. Even the positive macroeconomic statistics from the United States failed to reassure market participants to break through the 103rd figure.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General Overview


    The European currency fell against the dollar, despite the fact that the economic indicators of June and July showed a positive trend compared with the previous period. The retail sales in the euro zone rose in June by 0.4% against the results of May and the data of the second month of spring have been revised upwards.


    The single currency against the American dollar corrective gains proved not for a long time. A short-term price consolidation below the resistance level of 1.3430 to which the buyers have come on a heavy volume resulted in the downtrend continuation.

    Fundamental analysis


    The American currency continued to strengthen against its major competitors - the dollar index basket (USDX) finished the day at 81.52. The pair EUR/USD lost 0.15% at the end of last week due to negative Draghi’s comments. Mario Draghi said that inflation will remain at low levels for a long time and the lending companies rates remain weak for the economic growth recovery. The CPI decreased to the level of 0.4% in July.





    Bank of England showed no surprise – the monetary policy will remain the same. However, after the meeting bears rushed into the market there was a decrease in the GBP/USD quotations. Traders understand that in the current environment a strong British currency against its major "trading partners" carries risks for the economy as a whole and in particular for the inflation and endanger the earlier-than-expected first increase in the discount rate. The positive macroeconomic data from the United States just added optimism to bears.

    12.08.2014


    Fundamental analysis


    The EUR/USD closed the trading day with the quotations growth on short positions profit taking. The macroeconomic statistics showed a mixed background - the German trade balance indicator came out worse than the forecasted medians while the France industrial production release gave the market a pleasant surprise, showing an increase to the level of 1.3%. The market was full of the euro short positions as traders fully played this technical oversold in the last days.


    The UK trade balance negative report cheered the bears for opening the GBP/USD "shorts". The June deficit has increased which is directly related to the British pound strong rate against the dollar and the euro. Against this backdrop, investors dumped the pound.


    The BoJ, at its next meeting, signaled to market participants about the Japanese manufacturer's hard times. This negative process impacts on the export process and directly affects the economic growth rate. However, the monetary regulator refused the possibility of short term stimulus volume increasing again. Against this background, we observed sales in the Japanese stock market and the USD/JPY in the first half of the day.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    The euro grew slightly against the dollar. Probably after the marks test near the level of 1.3300/20 which the pair visited last time 9 months ago and therefore became the strong psychological support, some investors decided to close the euro short positions and take profit in a geopolitical situation tense. The euro area economy data which could impact the euro were not published besides the Germany trade surplus report that slightly disappointed the market as its result wasn’t good.


    There is a confirmed and weak sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.


    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The histogram is growing.

    Pound (GBP)


    General overview


    If investors see that the BoE in no hurry with the monetary option strengthening the pound will continue falling. The pound may find a support after the employment reports that are going to be published this week, the forecasts suggest the labor market improvement and the unemployment decrease.


    The UK GDP second estimate publication is likely to keep in force the previous results and, most likely, will not stimulate a volatility increase, unless we do not have deviations. The break of 1.6810 support was at high volume - that proves the sellers growing strength. In the future, we expect the weekly support level of 1.6710 - 1.6700 testing


    The price is finding the first support at 1.6770, the next one is at 1.6700. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6840, the next one is at 1.6900.

    The MACD histogram is in a negative territory. The price is consolidating.

    Yen (JPY)


    General overview


    The Japanese yen is still in multidirectional movements against the dollar and closed trading at opening prices. The pair was turned up under the pressure as the BoJ meeting results has not announced any changes and the Japan stock market collapse where the Nikkei fell by almost 3%.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is consolidating.


    Trading recommendations


    We expect a short-term growth at the beginning of this week. The potential growth target is the strong resistance level of 102.60.





    Franc (CHF)


    General overview


    The dollar/franc will be traded in the lower range, under the pressure from deteriorating relationship to the dollar and the market demand for the Swiss currency on the pair.

    Fundamental analysis

The EUR/USD bears still cannot take the support level of 1.3332 despite the negative macroeconomic statistics from the Eurozone. The main currency pair is still trading in the mid-range and market participants are saving effort to further the market down.


    The GBP/USD fell after the USA macroeconomic publications. The UK unemployment dropped to 6.4%. The Bank of England inflation minutes began on a positive note - the monetary regulator increased its estimate of economic growth in 2014 and 2015.

    The British pound was the main loser among all majors at yesterday's session. Sterling fell against the dollar, having lost more than 120 points. The cable fell because of the weak reports: the employment grew, but at the same time, salary growth leaves much to be desired - the average wage in the UK in April-June increased by only 0.6% instead of the expected 0.75%.


    BoE’s statements poured "fuel to the fire", they say that the interest rates growth will largely depend on the acceleration of wage growth.


    Sellers managed to break below the key support level 1.6710 - 1.6700. The downward trend is expected to be continued, but before that we are likely to see a short-term pullback to the resistance level 1.6700 - 1.6710.

When the weak retail sales in the United States yen rose sharply, but could not keep the trend and very soon came back under pressure.

    18.08.2014


    Fundamental analysis


    The EUR/USD could not set a fresh low despite the negative France, Germany and the Eurozone GDP. Economic growth in Germany fell on the background of geopolitics which intervened in the German economy. However, market participants have ignored the weak releases, the euro/dollar managed to strengthen to 1.3407 against the Initial Jobless Claims growth in the United States. However, the bulls growth mostly was not strong enough in the second half of the American trading session, and the euro returned to the previous range.


    After the "bear rally" the GBP/USD was within a narrow range. In the absence of important macroeconomic releases from the UK and the USA - sellers have decided to take a pause to evaluate the British currency medium-term downtrend prospects.


    Moderate demand for risky assets gave little support the USD/JPY pair. However, the decline of the American dollar against its major counterparts along the entire market (USDX) cooled bulls. The machinery and equipment orders release which came out worse than the median forecast, having shown an increase to the level of 8.8%, instead of the expected 15.5%. This report is a leading industrial production indicator and as we see it is difficult to count on the strong growth of the Japanese industry.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General Overview


    The euro/dollar behavior was unexpected enough last week. The Eurozone newsflow did not have anything interesting and has not made any impression on the market, at the same time the weak United States employment release caused a sharp euro growth.


    The instrument was trading without any changes. Despite the fact that the main trend is bearish, sellers can not break below 1.3340 strong support level for a long time.

    There is a confirmed and weak sell signal. The price is in the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen is directed downwards and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.


    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The histogram is growing.


    Trading recommendations


    It is possible that sellers will try again today to test the mark of 1.3340 strength. And if they break it, we expect a confident continuation of the bearish trend. The decrease potential is the mark 1.3280


    Still we should not exclude and growth possibility. The pair looks like going to correct to 1.3450.

To return some loss the pound could after the weak State's economy data release and due to technical levels which showed a strong support.

    Yen (JPY)


    General Overview


    The dollar/yen trading was marked by multi-directional maneuvers session and fell by the end of trading. The yen can get the support from optimism in the Japan stock market.

    19.08.2014


    Fundamental analysis


    The main competitors of the dollar could regain some lost ground last week. The EUR/USD used the moderately negative macroeconomic statistics from the United States and finished the day up 0.25%. The Michigan Institute consumer confidence came out worse than the forecasted median, at 79.2, showing the minimum value over the past 8 months.


    It should be noted that the final index fell below 12-month moving average which may signal a slowdown in the American economy. The July retail sales release also confirms this factor. Nevertheless, the current situation in Europe is much more negative and think about the downtrend change is too early.


    The GBP/USD is within a narrow range and even the weak consumer confidence release from the United States could not cheer the bulls to open long positions. Bears reliably keep the current level and this factor indicates a set of short positions by institutional investors, and in the near future is expected to be continued downward.


    Investors take profits on long positions in the world's leading stock market which put pressure on the USD/JPY. The USA consumer confidence came out worse than market expectations that together with the yields fall on 10-year Treasuries have caused the dollar demand for.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General Overview

The inflation release came out at a forecasts median, at around 2% y/y, which also fits to the strong economic growth scenario.


    The GBP/USD came under a sales wave again, on the background of the negative inflation report. The CPI came in at 1.6% y/y in July.

    Fundamental analysis


    The American currency accelerated its growth - the dollar basket index (USDX) finished trading day at around 82.24. The Federal Reserve "Minute" cheered bears to open short positions - the majority of management FOMC members believe that the downside inflation risks have been reduced and the global investment community would wait for the interest rates growth after the QE-3 is over.


    The Bank of England has confused its tracks - these are the monetary control last meeting minutes. Mark Carney pointed to possible monetary policy negative effects rapid tightening last week, as well as to the "strong pound" negative role for the export.

However, the traders quite sluggish reacted to this event - in the moment GBP/USD reached the level of 1.6677, after which we saw again the British currency sale. The investors still look with skepticism on the pound and therefore the quotations short-term growth is used to increase short positions.


    The USD/JPY is growing having gained 0.73%. The negative Japan July trade balance showed a growth that caused the greatest concern on the investors’ part. The Federal Reserve last meeting and its moderately positive minutes also supported the demand for the greenback.

    26.08.2014


    Fundamental analysis


    The single European currency has collapsed on Monday to the next local minimum against the dollar. The political and the Eurozone economy news did not give the "bulls" any chance for the euro recovery. The reason that caused another euro fall against the dollar could be the M. Draghi’s statements reporting about the possible monetary policy easing next phase beginning. In addition, the Ifo Institute Germany business sentiment report led to the market disappointments where the indicators had recorded the results lower and weaker than expected.




    The British pound also opened the week lower against the dollar, but then it was able to return to the previous week levels. Obviously, this fact - the first lost sterling positions return occurred because of the GBP/USD strong technical supports and the absence of disappointing news where the last statistic wasn’t published due to the non-working day.




    The yen continues to strengthen against the dollar on the optimism fall in the Japan stock market which may continue if the data on the State's economy do not offer the arguments to buy the pair.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    The market opening occurred with a gap (the price break). At the time the gap has not been worked out. The short-term price consolidation above the support level of 1.3170 will lead to the price bounce upwards, followed by the price gap overlap.


    The gap closing will allow the buyers to correct the price to the downtrend channel upper bound 1.3230. The downward channel upper bound retest is more likely to be followed by the price bounce downward.


    The price is finding the support at 1.3170, the next one is at 1.3130. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.3230, the next one is at 1.3290.

    While the pair is trading above the broken resistance level of 0.9090, the further growth and the 92nd figure testing possibility remain high. The 91st figure loss will weaken the "bullish" impulse and may lead to the fall to 0.9000.

    Fundamental analysis


    The dollar continued to strengthen against its major competitors - the dollar index basket (USDX) finished the trading day at around 82.67. The EUR/USD remained under the pressure on the background of the United States positive macroeconomic data. The July durable goods orders release showed 22.6% increase which provides a strong private consumption solid foundation in the current quarter. The consumer confidence index from the Conference Board also has pleased the market participants and a good report on this background pushed the euro/dollar to the level of 1.3165. The pair was returned above this level.


    The GBP/USD amid the lack of interesting reports publication consolidated in a narrow range. However, as soon as the market participants got a pleasant surprise from the United States on the durable goods orders and the consumer confidence index - the sellers began actively selling the GBP/USD, based on the continued United States economy strong growth in this year 3rd quarter.


    The stock index S & P500 storms all new maximums, followed by the Japanese stock market stretching and it all ends with the positive macroeconomic statistics from the United States on the durable goods orders. Against this background, we saw the bullish sentiment on the USD/JPY. The traders are still positive about the American dollar prospects and redeem any USD/JPY quotations decrease.

    Fundamental analysis


    The main American currency competitors could return some lost ground. The EUR/USD gained 0.2% against the partial profit taking on the short positions. No important macroeconomic statistics have been published, and after the price drop to the level of 1.3160 traders started to close the "shorts", which allowed the euro to correct to the 32nd figure. Nevertheless the pair decreased.




    The GBP/USD is trying to test 1.6535-1.6600 short-term trading range upper bound, but the bears fought off the attack which indicates the pessimism presence about the British currency prospects. Amid the empty macroeconomic calendar we again observed a side trend.




    The Japan and the United States stock market quotations decrease cheered the bears to short opening. However, we have not seen the American currency strong sales - the bulls are still buying the rollbacks and we observe the consolidation within the range of 103.70 -104.15.

    Fundamental analysis


    The market is quite. The major pairs showed a further side correction during which the dollar slightly fell against the euro and the pound and also got slightly stronger to the yen. The State's economy supported the dollar, still it had a minimal impact on the market. Clearly, the investors are waiting for the stronger drivers that may appear from the United States labor data this week.


    There was a more strong States economic recovery in the 2nd quarter - the GDP growth was revised from + 4.2% q/q, instead of the reducing to 3.8% q/q, while the previous calculations showed to + 3.9% q/q, the secondary housing market sales signed contracts number in July rose more than expected, showing +3.3% m/m, with expectations to see +0.6% m/m, and the initial claims number fell to 298 thousand last week, while the forecast expected about 300 thousand.


    We expect the U.S. July costs and incomes data and the Chicago activity reports. The demand indicators, which are ranked as costs and incomes are forecasted to be expected with a continued +0.2% m/m and +0.3% m/m growth respectively, which indicates the stable consumer activity, and the August Chicago PMI index with the rise to 56.3 from 52.6 previously. These results are the positive indicators for the dollar and can support it.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    The Eurozone economy reports have put a pressure on the European single currency which lowered the euro/dollar. The reason for this disappointment came from Germany and the European Commission studies on the European bloc economy sentiment.

The UK economy news was favorable for the pound – the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) reported the August strong sales growth, the indicator rose to 37 from 21, while it was expected to rise only 27.

    The Japanese yen strengthened against the dollar. Obviously, the stock market and the technical resistance levels weakness favor the profit-taking on the instrument. In addition, the pressure on the dollar could be strengthened by the exporters selling.


    There has been the support level of 103.70 retest. In the light of the high-volume the sellers tried to break below the level, but the test was followed by the price false bounce up.

    Fundamental analysis


    The dollar became the market leader - the dollar index basket (USDX) is at around 82.73. The EUR/USD remained under pressure amid the weak Eurozone data. The Germany and Spain July retail sales were significantly decreased which together with the CPI decrease to 0.3% y/y has caused the euro sales. A deflationary threat still hangs over the Eurozone and therefore the traders wait for the ECB decisive actions on September 4.


    The bulls once again tried to attack the level of 1.6602 on the GBP/USD, but once again the bears successfully repulsed the attack. After the Institute of Michigan revised data publication we saw strong pound selling. The consumer confidence index rose to 82.5 in August, which is a positive signal for the economy, now it is possible to expect the personal consumption growth.


    The Japan macroeconomic statistics disappointed the foreign exchange market participants - in addition to the CPI decrease, the same household spending fell sharply by 5.9% in July which is extremely negative for the economy’s growth. In this regard, we observed the Japanese yen weakening and the USD/JPY price growth which at the moment reaches 104.10. The Japan's economy after the April 1 sales tax rates increase shows a sharp slowdown while the United States showed a steady growth over the same period which caused the bullish trend continuation.

    The pairs spent week beginning within the small ranges amid the United States banking output the EUR/USD was held in the horizontal flat market 1.3118 -1.3145 amid the empty macroeconomic calendar day. Traders are ready to test the 312 figure, but don’t hurry to take positions before the ECB meeting, scheduled for Thursday, September 4th.


    The UK manufacturing sector PMI release disappointed the investors. The August resulting value was 52.5 while the index is below the 12-month average for two months in a row which is a negative signal for the production sector. We observed the GBP/USD price growth before the report publication, but then the investors were selling the British currency.


    The bulls keep the USD/JPY situation under control. Now almost nothing threatens the upward trend and against this background we observe the price increase even on an empty macroeconomic calendar. As the importers do not prevent such a scenario - then their risks are hedged and they are also ready for the upward trend.






    Euro (EUR)


    The volumes divergence indicates the downward trend weakening. But they haven’t reported about the trend reversal up signals. The euro decrease against the American dollar is in the downward channel which is the price movement benchmark.

    The American currency has strengthened its position against its main competitors - the dollar index basket (USDX) closed the trading day around 82.99, the first time since July 2013. However, the EUR/USD has been in a horizontal flat for the third trading day in a row, despite the United States positive macroeconomic data. The traders do not hurry to open positions before the European monetary control meeting and against this background we observe the range trading.




    The GBP/USD has ignored the UK strong construction sector business activity release and tested the 65 figure after the ISM manufacturing sphere positive data publication. The ISM index came in at 59 which is the highest level since April 2011. This release supports the positive forecast for the 3rd quarter in the United States economy and against the UK manufacturing sector weakness we observed the massive pound sell-off along the entire market.




    The bulls were able to take the 105 figure on the USD/JPY. We observed the large number of the activated stop orders in the Asian session which brought the pair to the strong level of 104.80. However, we did not see the stop amid a corporate bonds strong demand in the Japanese stock market so the growth was continued amid the United States manufacturing sector business activity positive macroeconomic statistics release. The pair slightly fell at the end of the trading day.

    Fundamental analysis


    The EUR/USD enjoyed a moderate demand from the traders the other day despite the weak macroeconomic data from the Eurozone. The August service sector PMI final data was revised down to the level of 53.1. The retail sales also showed a decline of -0.4%, which indicates a lack of consumer confidence in the region. However, the euro/dollar was growing moderately, as willing to sell at the low levels has been very little. Nevertheless after the ECB’s decision to reduce the interest rate the pair fell to the new minimums.




    The GBP/USD ignores the positive macroeconomic data from the United Kingdom. The services PMI rose to the level of 60.5, which is the highest level in the last 10 months. However, we have not seen a strong demand for the pound - at the moment the price reached the level of 1.6496 and the bulls’ impulse for the growth was over. As we do not see the GBP/USD growth- there are strong sellers in the market. The pair also fell after the EBC’s decisions announcement.




    After a long upward trend – the investors are taking profits in the USD/JPY. It should also be noted that the "longs" closing also happened in the United States and Japan stock markets which also inspired the bears to the short-term short positions opening. No important macroeconomic statistics has not been published and the sales were of a purely technical nature.






    Euro (EUR)


    The euro came under the dual influence. The markets negative sentiment provides a weak economic data from the euro zone and the risk appetite - a possible transition to the conflict between Russia and Ukraine peacekeeping phase. As a result, the single currency spent the day in multidirectional trade before the ECB’s meeting. After the decision to reduce the interest rate the euro fell.


    Two days price consolidation was followed by a slight increase. Then the pair decreased to a new min.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.2930, the next one is at 1.2850. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.3000, the next one is at 1.3070.


    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a downward movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.


    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is decreasing.


    Trading recommendations


    The downward movement will be continued. The pair may go to 0.2850 soon.





    Pound (GBP)


    The British economy good data maintained the sterling for a very short time. The attempt to start the GBP/USD growth quickly stopped after the statistics indicated the British services field activity growth rate efforts. The market participants were waiting for the ECB’s meeting results.


    More recently, the historical level of 1.6485 formed from 2014.03.21, was a sufficiently great support. But after the ECB announced that they decided to reduce the interest rate the pound significantly fell.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.6340, the next one is at 1.6270. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6440, the next one is at 1.6500.

    The MACD histogram is in a negative territory. The price is going down.


    Trading recommendations


    The approach to the level of 1.6440 may lead to a price rebound down. The potential rebound target is the level of support 1.6270.





    Yen (JPY)


    The yen strengthened slightly against the dollar. Obviously, the technical levels and the Bank of Japan rate outcome expectations became a deterrent to the USD/JPY growth. The Japanese regulator did not change anything and confirmed the economy optimistic assessment, despite the slowdown in the economic activity, after the sales tax increase in April. This decision has no effect on the market, the dollar/yen was traded in a narrow range. As for the future, it is likely that the calmness will last until the European Central Bank decisions and the USA economy data which can give fresh guidelines for the trading.


    The American dollar is testing the historical resistance level 105.20 strength.


    The price is finding the first support at 104.80, the next one is at 104.35. The price is finding the first resistance at 105.20, the next one is at 105.60.

    Trading recommendations


    The pair can grow to the resistance level of 104.35. We do not exclude the growth to 105.70.





    Franc (CHF)


    The Swiss franc fell against the dollar. There were not any national macrostatistics, so the first rate dynamics was formed by the United States Statistics. The United States labor market continues to slow the growth, but the changes in wages and the price pressures are not seen. The pair rose sharply after the ECB meeting.


    The price is finding the first support at 0.9170, the next one is at 0.9130. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9200, the next one is at 0.9240.

    Fundamental analysis


    The ECB’s surprise supported the dollar as the US currency strengthened the confidence on all fronts. The market was surprised that the European regulator not only lowered all the key interest rates, but also announced the securities buying that, in fact, is the quantitative easing.


    As a result the dollar rose against the euro by 200 points and against the pound over 140 points. The dispute with the yen was also positive for the dollar, but in this case, it seems to have been largely driven by the United States good economic data. As the presented statistics, the United States trade deficit was narrowed in July, instead of the expected increase to -42.5 billion it recorded -40.6 billion dollars, while the initial jobless claims rose, but not significantly, only to 302 thousand against the expectations to see 300 thousand and ADP private sector employment dynamics reports which noted the increase on 204 thousand with expectations of 215 thousand which was quite a positive result.


    The positive news came from the Supply Management Institute, the USA non-manufacturing sector activity report in August - the Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) rose to 59.6 from 58.7 in July. Despite the fact that some indicators fell short, it did not carry negative moments for the dollar and did not stop it from the market leadership, as indicator values reflect the high levels.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    The ECB's monetary policy publication fell off the euro last week. The prime lending rate was reduced to 0.05% from 0.15% and the bank deposit rate to -0.2% from -0.1%. We observed the single currency massive selling. M. Draghi’s words that the ECB will launch the asset-backed private sector securities buying round weakened the euro positions.


    The single currency has lost 230 points against the dollar.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.2930, the next one is at 1.2850. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.3000, the next one is at 1.3070.


    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.


    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is fixing.


    Trading recommendations


    The trend is a down side. The potential downtrend targets are the support levels: 1.2930, 1.2850. The level of 1.2850 retest may lead to a price rebound upward.





    Pound (GBP)


    The British pound also fell against the dollar. The sterling collapse came amid the dollar optimism caused by the ECB decisions. While the British regulator has not changed the main refinancing rate currently at 0.5% and left the bond purchases program in the amount of 375 billion pounds.


    The price rapid decrease has led to the 1.6340 downtrend channel lower bound breakthrough. The level break occurred in the context of increased volume which in the longer term indicates the bearish trend continuation.


    The price is finding the support at 1.6270. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6340, the next one is at 1.6440.


    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.


    The MACD histogram is in a negative territory. The price is consolidating.


    Trading recommendations


    The potential downtrend target is the support level of 1.6270.





    Yen (JPY)


    The Japanese currency also fell against the dollar. However, news about the ECB decision significantly affected the USD/JPY positions. The United States economy good results news and U.S. Treasuries profitability growth supported the dollar.


    The USD/JPY has tested the historical resistance level of 105.30 strength. The level retest was followed by the price bounce downward.


    The price is finding the first support at 104.80, the next one is at 104.35. The price is finding the first resistance at 105.30, the next one is at 105.70.


    There is a confirmed and a strong buy signal. The price is above the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show an upward movement. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.


    The MACD indicator is in a positive territory. The price is correcting.


    Trading recommendations




    We suppose the pair will go to 104.80 first. If the price fixates, it may continue the upward trend in the short term.





    Franc (CHF)


    The Franc suffered losses against the general dollar trend due to expectations that the world's largest economy strengthening signs will allow the Fed to start the monetary policy normalizing process sooner than expected.


    The price is finding the first support at 0.9270, the next one is at 0.9210. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9330, the next one is at 0.9370.


    There is a confirmed and a strong buy signal. The price is above the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

    Fundamental analysis


    The American currency slightly lost some positions against the background of the moderately negative macroeconomic statistics - the dollar index basket (USDX) ended the last trading week at 83.77.


    The EUR/USD trading was within the range of 1.2921 -1.2988. The pair fell at the end of the trading day. The United States labor market release came out ambiguous - the unemployment rate fell to the level of 6.1%, while the non-farm payrolls rose only to the level of 142,000, instead of the expected 226 000. Against this background, the bulls tried to push quotes to the 30 figure, but the bears were able to fight off the level which indicates a strong euro/dollar strong downward trend.


    The GBP/USD also remained under the pressure during the day, but some market participants decided to take profits on the short positions after the Non-Farm report which came worse than the forecasted medians, but it didn’t bring any strong dividends to the pound. The pair sharply fell down.


    The USD/JPY was able to set the fresh maximum at the level of 105.70 - the bulls started to close the "longs" which caused the strong price decrease. The United States employment macroeconomic statistics increased the downward movement and at the moment the price reached the level of 104.68, but by the end of the trading the bulls were able to restore the lost positions. The pair rose above the level of 105.70.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    The euro declined against the dollar at high volumes. Moreover, the general USD majors pairs' correlation is directed towards the dollar strengthening.

    Pound (GBP)


    The last week was a breakdown for the British pound. The sellers managed to break through the two strong support levels located at levels of 1.6440 and 1.6340 at high volumes.


    The active dollar strengthening against the GBP led to the descending channel leaving and a gap. In the future, we expect the bearish trend continuation.

    Yen (JPY)


    There was a historical resistance level of 105.70 testing. The price came above this level.


    As a rule, the false the strong resistance level testing is a good signal for the upward trend reversal. But as long as the sale proceeds in the uptrend direction, the bullish trend is still strong.


    The price is finding the support at 105.70, the next one is at 105.30. The price is finding the resistance at 106.30.

    10.09.2014


    Fundamental analysis


    The new week showed the dollar strengthening resumption. Obviously, the emotions caused by the unsatisfactory labor report were forgotten and the dollar continued its rally. There wasn’t any meaningful statistics published, except the Japan news where the second GDP estimate marked the economy reduction and the market is guided by the political impulse component which stimulates the dollar popularity growth.


    Another internal region influence factors were added by the Fed and ECB multi-directional policy fact that supports the dollar – the UK increases the Scotland separation probability, Japan showed top management statements disagreement about the fiscal and monetary policies prospects amid the weak economic data.


    There was not published any interesting United States statistics. News that is worth attention is the NFIB small business sentiment report. It is assumed that the August optimism index in this area rose to 96.0 from 95.7. These expectations, of course, do not change their sentiment towards the dollar, but at the same time will not add the buying impulse. It is most likely that the dollar will continue strengthening under already formed sentiment influence, but it can interfere with the technical factors, as the American currency look much overbought and majors have come to serious levels of support and resistance.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General Overview


    The American dollar has been actively strengthening against the euro. Obviously, the pessimism caused by the United States employment has gone and the market returned again under the main influence pressure factors - the ECB information about the measures taken to soften the monetary policy. There wasn’t a lot of the euro area economy news. Still the yesterday’s releases were able to support the euro for some time.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is correcting.


    Trading recommendations


    The potential growth target is the resistance level of 1.3000. The approach to this line may lead to a price rebound down. The potential decrease target is the support level of 1.2790.





    Pound (GBP)


    General Overview


    The pound continued its decline against the dollar. The price gap in about 55 points was not closed and the downward trend was continued amid the increased volumes.

    Yen (JPY)


    General Overview


    The Japanese yen also fell against the dollar. Probably, the first push for the rally resumption was given by the message that the second GDP estimate in the 2nd quarter recorded an even greater reduction than it was previously stated. Further, the yen could be pushed by the prime minister of Japan economic adviser E. Honda statements who spoke about the new sales tax growth inexpediency which is planned for the next year.


    There was the strong resistance level of 105.30 breakthrough.


    The continuous trading in the uptrend direction has led to the upper bound at the level of 105.70 breakthrough. The upward trend continues to gain strength.

    The MACD indicator is in a positive territory. The price is growing.
