    Fundamental analysis


    The European Commission forecast has been revised downwards in terms of the euro zone economic growth in 2014, but the euro dynamics remained practically unchanged and then some experts have concluded that there would not be negative trends in the euro zone economy, the ECB would not apply the additional incentive measures. Perhaps it is so. However, the euro managed to lose about 100 points and before the meeting outcome announcement the market will decide whether it was a reaction to the weak service sector business activity data in October or to the significant retail sales decline or to the fact that we expect that Draghi will announce the additional measures.


    The Eurozone currency updated lows. Earlier the euro managed to win back some losses amid the Narayana Kocherlakoty’s unexpected statements, the head of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis who had paid his attention to the US inflation low rate and told the possible Fed rate increase was inappropriate in 2015. Without any doubt, Kocherlakota knows what he is speaking about, because the US economy still needs stimulation despite the vigorous officials’ speeches.


    We expect quite good UK news. Besides the Bank of England meeting, traditionally held synchronously with the ECB, both the industrial production and the manufacturing industries data for September will be published, and the HBOS housing price index. It must be said that the confident speeches in the first half of the year left no trace and the market is not worried about the fact when the Bank of England plans tightening monetary policy. The market knows that it will not happen in the short term and the meeting will unlikely lead to the significant pound movements. Nevertheless, the pair is again testing new minimum mark.

    Pound (GBP)

    10.11.2014


    Fundamental analysis


    The last week ended with the dollar strengthening against its competitors in the financial markets. The ECB and the Bank of England monetary policy decision that was announced on Thursday, met our forecasts, the changes were not made, but the market reacted to these results by the dollar large-scale buying. Obviously, the investors regarded the BoE inactivity as the fears acknowledgement that the UK economic recovery had slowed down; there is a risk to return the downtrend and in these circumstances, the regulator does not intend to tighten the policy.


    As for the ECB, the signaling point for the market was the M. Draghi’s press conference that reaffirmed the European Central Bank decision to increase the quantitative easing volumes.


    The US economic data were scarce, but they were on the dollar side - the initial jobless claims fell immediately by 10 thousand last week while we expected the data would be significantly less positive, only two thousand. This information could also support the dollar as to some extent it added confidence that the coming labor report would note good results. According to our forecasts the employment statistics will announce its growth by 233/230 thousand of work places in the US non-agricultural sector and the US unemployment rate retention at the level of 5.9%. If the fact does not meet our expectations for the worst, the dollar demand will remain at the high level.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    The single European currency could recover a few. Earlier the euro continued to decline against the dollar and fell to the new local lows. The reports that the European Central Bank left its key interest rate at the record low level of 0.05%, initially supported the euro, but the M. Draghi’s press-conference changed the market sentiment and the euro was in the sales wave.


    The support level of 1.2400 was broken through. The level breakthrough was amid the high volumes. The pair failed to consolidate below and returned to the position above this support.

    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is below 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 correcting.


    Trading recommendations


    The downward movement will be continued. The potential decrease targets are the two levels of support: 1.2400 and 1.2300.





    Pound (GBP)


    General overview


    The pound slightly rose against the dollar. Earlier the British pound fell. The Bank of England has not changed the monetary policy parameters- the refinancing rate remained at the level of 0.5% and the bond purchases program is in the amount of 375 billion of British pounds. However, it was considered by the market as the reason for the pound decrease and put some pressure on the "cable".


    Sellers have managed to break through the support level of 1.5870 for the second time. The level breakthrough was amid the high volumes. The pair is testing the level of 1.5870 from the bottom.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.5660. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5870, the next one is at 1.5950.

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


    Trading recommendations


    We believe the growth will be continued now. The first target is the level 1.3670.





    Yen (JPY)


    General overview


    The pair dollar/yen tried to continue its growth on the common sentiment for the "dollar", but its attempts were broken off amid the Japan stock market quotations decrease where the Nikkei fell by almost 1%.


    The dollar/yen managed to break the level of 114.60 upwards and consolidate above. Currently the pair is testing the support level of 114.60.

    Trading recommendations


    The pair is close to the strong resistance 115.80. The price rebounds from this mark.





    Franc (CHF)


    General overview


    According to the latest forecasts in the world's largest economy there were created 235,000 new work places in comparison with the average growth rate of 226.670 last year. At the same time the unemployment rate is likely to remain at the level of 5.9%.

    11.11.2014


    Fundamental analysis


    The week beginning was noted by the some dollar recovery against all majors. The Friday trade results were not on the US dollar side. The dollar fell against all of its major competitors after the US employment data partially met our expectations. In general, the employment report result was not bad - the unemployment rate fell in October to 5.8% against 5.9% in September as we had not expected the changes and the number of part-time workers and those who have no hope in finding a job, reduced by 0.3%. The new September workplace data was revised upwards. However, the October new workplace growth came out much worse than it had been expected amounting 214 thousand instead of 233 thousand that confused the market and provoked the US dollar sales.


    Moreover, it seems that the technical factors have put some pressure on the dollar as the levels where the main pairs are now are distinguished by the strong support/resistance which with the obvious dollar overbought was able to increase the profit fixation on the previous open long positions within the dollar.


    With regard to the dollar perspectives, the less strong job growth has not changed the market preferences and the "bullish" attitude towards the dollar. However, the absence of important events in the US as well as in other regions can support the correction that began last Friday and then the week trades will be in ranges.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    The euro fell sharply at yesterday's trading. The attitude towards the euro was changed last week - buyers started to buy the European currency and at the end of the Friday it strengthened against the dollar and other majors. Obviously, the euro overbought reached the level that prompted investors to the correction, all the more that the US statistics gave rise to the emotional reaction against the dollar, showing the October work places increase data worse than it had been forecasted.


    We observe the upper bound testing of the downtrend channel at the level of 1.2500. The price exit from the channel limits opens the way to the resistance level of 1.2500 in the long term.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.2400, the next one is at 1.2300. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2500, the next one is at 1.2600.


    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is below 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 falling.


    Trading recommendations


    We suppose the pair will go to 1.2400 first. Having overcome the first target the price might go downwards to 1.2300.





    Pound (GBP)


    General overview


    The sterling fell slightly against the dollar yesterday. The British pound also grew against the dollar on Friday on the common emotions caused by the US economic data. However, the pound rise was less energetic in comparison with the euro one; the UK economic data could slow it down. The week news is not rich in the number of messages, but the important and influential information will be sufficient. The statistical data can support the pound.


    The consolidation led to the correctional growth above the level of 1.5870. The pair then declined and closed trades below this level.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.5660. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5870, the next one is at 1.5950.


    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 decreasing.


    Trading recommendations


    The price is core trend. We expect the level of 1.5660 testing soon.





    Yen (JPY)


    General overview


    The dollar began to fight for its position against the Japanese currency. A pessimism towards the dollar became evident on Friday and the US dollar declined at the end of the trading day within the pair USD/JPY. The US dollar sales for the yen began after the US labor market report, some of which contained information about the forecasts failure. The Bank of Japan minutes and the Institute president H. Kuroda’s speech showed a clear intention to maintain the easing policy and increase incentives if required.


    Buyers twice tried to get closer to 115.80 resistance, but without success. There was the price rebound downwards. The price rebound from the level allowed sellers to get out of the rising channel. The pair showed some growth and closed the trading day above the level of 114.60 yesterday.


    The price is finding the first support at 114.60, the next one is at 113.50. The price is finding the resistance at 115.80.


    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.


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


    Trading recommendations


    The pair can grow to the resistance level of 115.80.





    Franc (CHF)


    General overview


    The dollar increased against the Swiss franc. Earlier the franc sharply strengthened on Friday. The dollar showed the maximum fall for the last three weeks after the employment report publication was slightly worse than the average forecasts amid the discussions about the fact when the Fed will raise the interest rates from the record lows.


    The price is finding the first support at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9560. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9680, the next one is at 0.9750.


    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.


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


    Trading recommendations


    We advise to long with the first target - 0.9750.

    12.11.2014


    Fundamental analysis


    The new week was opened by the attempts to continue the dollar sales on the sentiment formed by the US labor report that was published last Friday. However, the success was not long on the "bears" side within the dollar, the levels where the US dollar had fallen turned out to be attractive for purchases and investors began to stock up the long positions volumes within the dollar. As a result, the Monday's session ended with the dollar strengthening against all the major competitors. The US news was not published on Monday. However, the yesterday's trades ended with the dollar weakening.


    We expect the NFIB small business sentiment report, it is considered that the optimism index rose to 95.5 vs. 95.3 in October that is a positive factor for moods within the dollar, but most of all it will not provoke reactions and increased volatility on the market. Apparently, this session will be marked by the weak range trading as the previous one.


    The US GDP showed its growth in the third quarter. The service sector has shown an increase in the workplaces by 181 thousand. It is worth noting that service sector includes 52 thousand from the recreational sphere. The processing industry has increased the workplaces by 15 thousand. The US population share in the so-called labor force showed an increase from 62.7% to 62.8% in October this year. The 62.7% index for September 2014 corresponds to the minimum indicator in February 1978.





    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    The euro held the Tuesday trading in the narrow side corridor and at the end of the session rose against the dollar. Earlier the euro fell amid the European news as the US news was lack of important information and the euro was under pressure due to the last events – the less strong US labor report as well as the medium-level sentiment, preserving the dollar demand.


    The resistance level short term test of 1.2500 was followed by the price rebound downwards. The US dollar continued to strengthen against the euro amid the low volumes. The rebound from the resistance level of 1.2500 has led to the descending channel formation. The price decreased to the level of 1.2400. The buyers again corrected the price to the level of 1.2500.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.2400, the next one is at 1.2300. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2500, the next one is at 1.2600.


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


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


    Trading recommendations


    The downward movement will be continued. The pair may go to 1.2400 soon.





    Pound (GBP)


    General overview


    The British pound also spent the yesterday's trading in the side trade. The general market sentiment was influenced by the GBP/USD which decreased in the early session and then rose that resulted in the pound strengthening at the end of the day.


    The resistance level short break of 1.5870 was followed by the reverse price return above this mark. The reverse price return above the level of 1.5870 allowed the buyers to lower the price to the resistance level of 1.5950.


    The trading volumes are at the lows, besides today we expect the fundamental data releases. We expect a consolidation below the support level of 1.5950 in the short term.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.5660. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5870, the next one is at 1.5950.

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


    Trading recommendations


    The potential decrease target is the support level of 1.5660.





    Yen (JPY)


    General overview


    The USD/JPY trades showed a different directional movement, ended by the yen victory at the end of the trading day. Besides the general market sentiment, the pair dynamics was influenced by the events in the Japan stock market and in the US government debt market. The Nikkei fall provoked the risk avoidance and the yen strengthening at the beginning of the day, but the US "Treasuries" bond yields growth led to the dollar support in the US session.


    The short-term correction to the support level of 114.60 was followed by the price rebound upwards. Despite the reduced volumes, the buyers returned the price back to the resistance level of 115.80 where the price rebounded in the opposite direction.


    The price is finding the first support at 114.60, the next one is at 113.50. The price is finding the resistance at 115.80.


    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 shows an upward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal 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


    If the price breaks 114.60 down it will open the way to the level of 113.50.





    Franc (CHF)


    General overview


    The dollar again began to lose ground after a slight increase. Earlier the dollar recovers its positions after the short recession caused by the US labor report publication.


    The price is finding the first support at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9560. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9680, the next one is at 0.9750.


    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 shows a horizontal movement and the Kijun-sen shows an upward movement and form a “Dead Cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.


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

    13.11.2014


    Fundamental analysis


    We again observed the volatile range trading on the currency market yesterday. The major pairs remained in the side corridors that had been formed earlier, only this time the US dollar rose at the end of the trading day. The exceptions were the events against the dollar and the yen; in this case the dollar has reached the new local maximum and has closed trades with a profit. It is difficult to say what caused the dollar decrease earlier that mainly occurred in the US session. Perhaps, the absence of the news "irritants” and the speech by the Boston Fed president Rosengren influenced the market sentiment, who told during the interview with media that the US central bank should refrain from raising interest rates until the inflation target level returned to the Federal Reserve target level defined at the level below 2%.


    It seems that there will not be large-scale changes in the currency market - the dollar will likely trade in the same way against the euro and the yen, but it is possible the volatility increase in the pair pound/dollar because there will be much important and influential information in the UK.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    The euro has consolidated against the dollar. There were no events that could support the euro and its interest could be based on the technical factors and the US Central Bank speeches. Moreover, the EU authoritative analysts’ statements could be a reason for the increasing pressure on the European currency.


    The trend is expected to go downwards according to this instrument in the medium-term. The correctional growth price continuation is expected in the short term.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.2400, the next one is at 1.2300. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2500, the next one is at 1.2600.


    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is below the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a horizontal movement and the Kijun-sen shows a downtrend movement and form a “Golden Cross”. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.


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


    Trading recommendations


    The pair is close to the strong resistance level of 1.2500. If the pair breaks it we expect the growth to 1.2600.





    Pound(GBP)


    General overview


    The British pound has sharply fallen against the dollar. Obviously, the market was guided by the technical factors and the US news.


    We expect the UK employment data and the inflation report by the Bank of England which will be commented by the institution president M.Karni at the press conference.


    The key resistance for bears is the downward trend line of 1.5950, from which the pair rebounded downwards.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.5660. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5870, the next one is at 1.5950.

    The trend is a core sided. We expect the level of 1.5660 testing soon.





    Yen (JPY)


    General overview


    The Japanese yen fell against the dollar on the yesterday trades. The Japan stock market events where the Nikkei grew by 2% and then the rumors that the next Japan sales tax increase may be postponed to the later date put some pressure on the yen.


    At the beginning of the week buyers were able to break through and consolidate above the resistance level of 114.60. The level breakthrough was amid the low volumes and led to a consolidation.

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


    Trading recommendations


    The potential growth target is the resistance level of 117.00.





    Franc (CHF)


    General overview


    The Swiss franc rose before the referendum, scheduled on the November 30 after which the gold reserves increase in the ratio of 20% to the foreign exchange reserves from the current 8% can be required from the Swiss regulator. It may complicate the National Bank work in control over the exchange rate. In this case the regulator will be given five years to increase gold reserves to the required levels.

    14.11.2014


    Fundamental analysis


    There was the volatility growth within the major pairs yesterday. The pair EUR/USD ended the trading day in the "red zone" amid the empty macroeconomic calendar. The oil quotes reduction contributed to the US dollar rise during the day. The bond market dynamics also supported the dollar demand – on Wednesday we observed the German and the USA yields spread extension.


    As we noted in our previous review - the Bank of England negative inflation report will encourage bears to open short positions within the pair GBP/USD. The monetary regulator lowered both the GDP growth and inflation estimation for the next two years. We expect to achieve the 2% target inflation by the end of 2017 that greatly upset the currency market participants. Against this negative background, traders hurried to get rid of pounds that lost 0.85% after the trades.


    We observe the steady uptrend within the pair USD/JPY and we do not see any reasons for its failure. The dollar feels quite at ease and bulls use the short-term quotations decrease to increase the "longs". We observed the technical correction in the US and Japan stock markets and against this background the pair dollar/yen quotes fell to the level of 114.88 after that we again saw the US dollar demand yesterday.






    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    The euro was trading in the narrow side corridor and finally fixed the negative result against the dollar. There were some eurozone economic data that have shown the positive result, but it was not enough to give the euro solid support.


    The consolidation continuation was a good signal for the prices rebound downwards. Moreover, buyers were not able to lift the price above the level of 1.2500 and this level testing was unsuccessful.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.2400, the next one is at 1.2300. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2500, the next one is at 1.2600.

    The potential rebound target are the support levels of 1.2400 and 1.2300. The potential decrease target is the support level of 1.2200.





    Pound (GBP)


    General overview


    The UK economic data have shown the labor market positive results, but the inflation report and the BoE M.Karni’s comments caused a pessimism wave and provoked the pressure increase on the pound which fell against the dollar to the new local low and ended the trades with significant losses.


    The British pound broke through and fixed below the strong support level of 1.5870. The level breakthrough was amid the GBP high volatile news.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.5660. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5870, the next one is at 1.5950.

    Yen (JPY)


    General overview


    The Japanese yen was traded against the dollar in the side consolidation and closed the session with small losses. Obviously, the pair little activity was the result of the different rumors related to the Japan fiscal policy that decide the sales tax fate, the possible early parliament elections and also amid the neutral events in the stock markets.


    There was the support level of 115.80 testing. It was amid the low volumes and failed to break above this level. The price is consolidating below this level.

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


    Trading recommendations


    After the trend line 115.80 breakthrough upwards the way to the resistance 117.00 will be opened.





    Franc (CHF)


    General overview


    The Swiss franc strengthened slightly against the dollar.


    The Swiss National Bank president, Jordan said that the adoption of the so-called “Save Our Swiss Gold” initiative would be a "fatal error of judgment” and would complicate the central bank work.


    In the center of this popular legislative initiative is the requirement to prohibit the Swiss National Bank from selling its gold reserves. In addition, the initiative requires that one fifth of the Swiss Central Bank foreign exchange reserves would be translated into the pure gold.

    18.11.2014


    Fundamental analysis


    We observed volatility spikes within the major pairs last Friday that continued on the yesterday trades. After the moderately positive euro zone GDP data the EUR/USD reached the mark of 1.2550 from which the pair fell. The economic growth showed 0.2% in the 3rd quarter instead of the expected 0.1%. However, traders ignored this report amid the US strong economic growth, but economic growth in the Old World has not led to sustainable development. The US positive macroeconomic statistics will allow the euro/dollar to test 24th figure. Both releases from the United States pleased traders with the positive data and at the moment of quotes reached the level of 1.2455.


    The pair GBP/USD has started the trading week at the minimum value over the past 13 months. The Bank of England inflation release that was published on Wednesday 12 November has sent the pound to knockout. We have watched both the pair GBP/USD reduction and the UK and the US negative bond yields expansion for the last three trading days of the last week. The US positive macroeconomic retail sales and the consumer confidence statistics by the Institute of Michigan has only reinforced the "bearish rally" within the British pound and at the moment of quotes reached the mark of 1.5720 after which the pair decreased back to the minimums.


    The United States pleased traders with the positive macroeconomic statistics. The October retail sales rose by 0.3% while the consumer confidence indicator by the Institute of Michigan showed maximum values in July 2007. The increased consumer confidence is laying a strong foundation for strong economic growth in the 4th quarter of the current year.








    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    The euro continues its downward movement after a slight correction. Earlier the euro demand has grown that allowed the European currency to finish trades with a profit against the dollar. This point is attributed to the US inflation perspectives that reduce our confidence in the US rate increase any time soon. However, the technical factors were a more serious as that triggering increased tendency to lock in profits on the long dollar positions.


    Buyers corrected the euro/dollar amid the low volumes to the downward trend line of 1.2500. The downward trend line of 1.2500 is a key resistance for the bearish trend. The price could not fix above this level.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.2400, the next one is at 1.2300. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2500, the next one is at 1.2600.

    The price is finding the first support at 115.80, the next one is at 114.60. The price is finding the resistance at 117.00.


    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.

    20.11.2014


    Fundamental analysis


    The US dollar was under pressure yesterday. The pair EUR/USD was in demand during the day amid the positive release from the ZEW institute. The business sentiment rose to 11.5 in Germany that is the highest value over the past three months. The positive expectations about the German economy perspectives greatly encourage us, but we should not deceive ourselves - the trend is still negative and we should see a series of positive data. The neutral bond market news also contributed to the euro purchase.


    The pound was showing an upward trend during the day. The UK consumer price index has coincided with the forecast, showing an increase by 0.1% and at the same time the PPI rate has slightly decreased. The main reason for the inflation increasing became tariffs for the transport services. Nevertheless, the US and UK negative yield spreads held bulls back from the opening long positions. Traders have virtually ignored the inflation data and during the day we saw a flat within the pair GBP/USD. Nevertheless the pair grew.


    The economic instability provided the political instability in Japan. "Abenomics" is under pressure and, in this regard, the Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced the early elections and suspended the sales tax increase for 18 months. The pair USD/JPY reached the mark of 117.06 against this negative background, then we again saw profit-taking on long positions, allowing the yen to recover some lost ground. However, the US stock market growth encouraged bulls again for the "longs" opening.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    The euro continued to strengthen its position. The better ZEW report for November in comparison with the forecasts supported the euro. The Germany and the EU data unexpectedly exceeded forecasts, showing the economic sentiment growth up to 11.5 pp and 11.0 pp respectively.


    The trading volumes continue to decline downwards both with the corrective growth and with the trade price within the trend. The bearish trend potential is still in force.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.2500, the next one is at 1.2400. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2600, the next one is at 1.2670.


    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 shows an upward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement. The upward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.


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


    Trading recommendations


    The price is likely to go to the support levels of 1.2400, 1.2300.





    Pound (GBP)


    General overview


    The Bank of England's last meeting monetary policy minutes will not cause a strong reaction on the traders’ part this time. We received a quarterly inflation report the last week where the monetary authorities indicated all the key guidelines. In this regard, the traders will focus their attention on the Fed “minutes” publication.


    There was formed the quite strong divergence within the pound on the trading volumes. The downward trend is not supported by sellers and is gradually losing steam. The pair slightly corrected.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.5660, the next one is at 1.5550. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5870, the next one is at 1.5950.


    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 shows a horizontal movement and the Kijun-sen shows a downward movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.


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


    Trading recommendations


    The downward movement will be continued. The pair may go to 1.5660, 1.5550 soon.





    Yen (JPY)


    General overview


    The yen suffered losses against the euro and the dollar after the Japan Prime Minister Abe announced the early parliamentary elections and postponed the planned sales tax increase.


    This fact proves that the government is aware that the third world economy is not in the great shape and intends to take the additional stimulating measures.


    The dollar continues to strengthen against the Japanese yen. The upward trend is on the declining volumes. Technically the yen demand is gradually weakening.


    The price is finding the first support at 117.00, the next one is at 115.80. The price is finding the first resistance at 118.00, the next one is at 119.20.


    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 shows a horizontal movement and the Kijun-sen shows 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 increasing.


    Trading recommendations


    We expect the 118.00 line break that will open the way for the buyers to 119.20.





    Franc (CHF)


    General overview


    The Swiss franc rose against the dollar after the US statistics publication. The data showed that the US producer price index rose 0.2% in October while analysts expected a decline by 0.1%. The figure rose by 1.5% in annual terms that is higher the forecast by 1.3%.


    The price is finding the first support at 0.9560, the next one is at 0.9500. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9680.


    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a horizontal movement and the Kijun-sen shows 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


    We recommend going short with the first target - 0.9500. When the price consolidates below the first target it may go to the level 0.9430.

    24.11.2014


    Fundamental analysis


    There was a flat within the major pairs the last week. The euro sharply fell at the end of the week. The pair EUR/USD was not able to test the 25th figure and at the moment of quotations reached the mark of 1.2555 despite the negative France and Germany manufacturing sector PMI release and then we saw a sharp decrease. The US inflation release came out slightly better than traders had expected, though it did not bring special dividends for the US dollar. The CRB commodity showed a moderately upward trend that put some pressure on the dollar.


    The UK positive retail sales release for October encouraged traders to open long positions within the pair GBP/USD. The index came out at the level of 0.8%, instead of the expected 0.4%. The British pound reached the level of 1.5735, then bulls began to close their "longs" and we saw a technical rebound below 57th figure. The US CPI release increased the US and the UK negative yield spreads that restrained bulls from the long positions retention.


    The first time for the last few months Japan issued the positive trade balance. The yen devaluation will reflect positively on exporters and as a result we have seen the negative balance reduction by 250 billion yen. However, the traders ignored the positive data and we observed the strong quotations growth to the level of 118.99. Then traders fixed profits on the "longs" and at the moment of the quotation the pair USD/JPY reached the level of 117.75 where it formed a consolidation.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    The euro was consolidating near the 25th figure, but it sharply fell amid the ECB chief’s speech. Earlier in the absence of any important macroeconomic statistics it is difficult to expect high volatility within the major pairs. Even despite the negative France and Germany PMI the euro did not fall below 25th figure, indicating the traders’ reluctance to increase shorts. The bond market spreads also show the neutral background.


    The situation within the euro/dollar changed. The pair closed the week below the trend line 1.2400.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.2300, the next one is at 1.2200. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2500, the next one is at 1.2600.


    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


    When the price consolidates below the level of 1.2400 it may go to the level of 1.2300.





    Pound (GBP)


    General overview


    The UK low inflation expectations put pressure on the "cable". In this regard, we observe the UK and the US negative differential bond yields extension that acts as the bulls’ deterrent.


    The pound corrective strength reached the week maximum - the resistance level of 1.5735 and fell to the level of 1.5660. The level of 1.5735 is below the resistance level of 1.5870 that is a key resistance on the buyers’ way.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.5660, the next one is at 1.5550. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5870, the next one is at 1.5950.


    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 and form a “Golden Cross”. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.


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


    Trading recommendations


    The potential decrease target is the support level of 1.5550.





    Yen (JPY)


    General overview


    The pair has been growing for a long time and therefore now there are many people wishing to close the part of the "longs". The US stock market is showing strength after the minor technical correction, the Nasdaq index is again the leading growth that signals about the positive trend continuation on the stock market.


    The US dollar strong growth against the Japanese yen was stopped at the level of 118.60. From this level there was formed the short-term correction to the level of 118.00 where a consolidation is observed.


    The price is finding the first support at 117.00, the next one is at 115.80. The price is finding the first resistance at 118.00, the next one is at 119.00.


    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 shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows 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 consolidating.


    Trading recommendations


    The approach to the level of 117.00 may lead to the price rebound upwards. The potential rebound target is the resistance level of 119.20.





    Franc (CHF)


    General overview


    The US consumer price inflation is above the predicted values, but it is not a reason for the active dollar sales and purchases. The pair sharply increased at the end of the Friday trades.


    The price is finding the first support at 0.9680, the next one is at 0.9620. The price is finding the resistance at 0.9720.


    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 and form a “Golden Cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.


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


    Trading recommendations


    We recommend going short with the first target - 0.9620. When the price consolidates below the first target it may go to the level 0.9560.

    25.11.2014


    Fundamental analysis


    The dollar weakening was noted in the major currency pairs yesterday. If looking beyond the events within the pairs EUR/USD and USD/CHF, nothing remarkable happened at the last trades. The dollar strengthened against the pound and fell against the yen, but there were consolidation movements on these instruments and they were within the previously formed correction ranges.


    In the dollar and the euro dispute there was a sharp dollar strengthening that led not only to the dollar increase by the end of the last week, during which the dollar was losing against the European currency most of the time. These euro large-scale sales for the dollar can be attributed to the ECB President M. Draghi’s speech who had promised to continue quantitative easing on Friday in his report at the European Banking Congress in Frankfurt. The ECB president statements gave more certainty that the European regulator would begin to include in their purchases the Central Bank and the Eurozone sovereign debt.


    There were published little the US economic statistical data, the most interesting is the Fed Kansas City report that showed the manufacturing sector activity increase in November that was higher than expected - the index grew to the level of 7 from 4 in October, though we expected to see improvements only to 6. The week news does not plan to present the important data and those that are preparing to leave for the most part are expected to be with the positive dynamics.


    It is unlikely that the attitude towards the US dollar has changed, if there are no surprising deviations from forecasts to the negative side for the dollar.

The EUR/USD was able to finish the trading day in a positive territory despite the mixed news. Earlier the second US GDP assessment for the third quarter pleased traders by the positive data –the indicator was revised upwards by 3.9%. The United States show strong growth for the last two quarters that is seen in the dollar strengthening.


    The parliamentary inflation hearings did not cause any significant fluctuations within the pair GBP/USD. Mark Carney denied deflationary fears and also pointed out that the cumulative monetary policy tightening would likely be less significant than it was expected earlier.


    The Bank of Japan governor’ speech was held on Tuesday and allowed the Japanese yen with the US dollar to compensate some lost ground. Haruhiko Kuroda said that the monetary authorities would closely monitor the yen devaluation as this process begins to exert pressure on households.

    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview

    Pound (GBP)


    General overview


    We do not expect the indicator revision upwards from the adjusted UK GDP release for the 3rd quarter. The release can be at the level of the forecasted medians. The moderately positive durable goods orders release can support the US dollar demand, but we cannot count on the strong dollar growth as traders ignored the positive US GDP release.


    The British pound has been consolidating at the support level of 1.5660 practically for two weeks. The pound sharply increased yesterday.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.5660, the next one is at 1.5550. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5870, the next one is at 1.5950.

    Fundamental analysis


    The US dollar is under pressure the whole week. The pair EUR/USD was able to consolidate above the level of 1.2400 amid the German and the US Treasuries bond spreads reduction. The US macroeconomic statistics was generally positive – the durable goods orders increased by 0.4% in October. We should also note the personal consumption expenditures index growth to the level of year on year 1.6%. The Fed focuses namely on this indicator, determining the consumer activity. The new buildings rate sales in October stopped short before the predicted value. Despite the positive background - the euro again showed weakness.


    Institutional investors continue to take profits on the short positions within the pair GBP/USD. Despite the UK moderate negative statistics – the pound tested the 58th figure during the day. The retail sales release according to the industrials confederation data (CBI) for November came out worse than the forecasted medians. We should also note a sharp investment decline for the third quarter. As we noted above, to the contrary, the US statistics showed a positive trend. At the moment of quotation the pair pound/dollar fell to the mark of 1.5736.


    The pair USD/JPY was under pressure most of the day – traders, concerned about the Bank of Japan governor’s statement that the monetary authorities are worried about the strong yen devaluation, getting rid of the long positions. The price reached the level of 117.45, but then after the US positive macroeconomic statistics bulls were able to recover some lost ground.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    All traders’ attention will be focused on the Petroleum Exporting Countries meeting in Vienna. We again will see the Brent and WTI quotations decrease that will put some support to the US dollar.

    Trading recommendations


    We suppose the pair will go to 1.5870 first. Having overcome the first target the price might go upwards to 1.5950 and 1.6030.





    Yen (JPY)


    General overview


    We should expect the lateral trend development throughout the day amid the absence of important macroeconomic statistics publication and the weekend in the United States. The OPEC summit results certainly will have an impact on the balance of power in the Forex foreign exchange market, but we should expect the lowest volatility within the pair dollar/yen.


    The US dollar continued to correct downwards relatively to the Japanese yen. The price corrective decline volumes are in the reduced zone, indicating the sellers’ reducing power.


    The price is finding the first support at 117.00, the next one is at 115.80. The price is finding the first resistance at 118.00, the next one is at 119.20.

    01.12.2014


    Fundamental analysis


    The OPEC summit was held- the oil production level remains the same despite the strong differences within the cartel. Against this background we saw a powerful "bearish rally" within the black gold - the WTI oil has fallen below $ 70 / barrel the first time for the last four years. The pair EUR/USD was under pressure after the last week three-day growth – the Spain and Germany inflation preliminary data did not please the traders with their positive releases. The ECB President Mario Draghi underlined that the monetary authorities are ready to increase incentives if necessary and asked his colleagues to carry out additional analysis. The oil quotations decrease with the negative internal background put some pressure on the euro.


    The oil cartel decision sent the Brent quotes to the bottom that increased demand for the UK government bonds. The Gilts 10-year bond yields were at the level of 1.92% last Thursday that is the lowest level for the last 18 months. The UK inflation expectations are declining that puts pressure on the pound. Against this negative background, most of the Friday trades we observed the British pound sales and the trading day finished with decrease within the pair GBP/USD.


    The traders continued to get rid of the US dollar within the pair USD/JPY as they were afraid of the Bank of Japan's comments about the negative yen devaluation impact on the household spending. The commodity goods sales lead to the dollar demand. The pair closed the last week with an increase.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    The Germany and Spain CPI preliminary releases showed the consumer prices decrease in annual terms, indicating that the data was at the level of the forecasted medians. In recent months we have seen the monetary aggregate M3 increase money amid the ECB accommodating monetary policy, but it will be not enough to increase inflationary pressure in the current circumstances. The oil market sales also will strengthen the demand for the US dollar.


    The four day euro corrective growth against the US dollar was stopped by the downward trend line of 1.2500. The trend line testing was followed by the consolidation with the further prices rebound downwards.


    The price rebounded from the trend line to the level of 1.2450 at the low volumes.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.2400, the next one is at 1.2300. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2500, the next one is at 1.2600.


    There is a non-confirmed and a weak sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows an upward movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.


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


    Trading recommendations


    The pair can fall to the support level of 1.2400. After breaking 1.2400 the pair may go to 1.2300.





    Pound (GBP)


    General overview


    The British pound was unable to consolidate its success after the resistance level of 1.5660 breakthrough. The price returned back and it has broken through this level downwards amid the low volumes.


    The key support for buyers is the uptrend lower bound of 1.5660. Based on the fact on which volatility the sellers drive the price downwards, the price consolidation will be formed near the channel lower bound in the short term.


    The price is finding the support at 1.5550. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5660, the next one is at 1.5870.


    There is a non-confirmed and a weak 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 and form a “Dead Cross”. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.


    The MACD histogram is in a neutral territory. The price is decreasing.


    Trading recommendations


    The buyers need to break above 1.5660 for a steady growth. The way to the mark 1.5870 will be opened after this breakthrough.





    Yen (JPY)


    General overview


    Japan will publish a set of the important macroeconomic statistics where the October CPI data stand apart. On the one hand, we observed the yen devaluation and the money supply increase in October that is a positive factor for the inflation. On the other hand, the energy prices decline with the low household level will put pressure on the consumer price index.


    The second consecutive week the price has been consolidating within the side corridor levels of 118.60 - 117.60. There was a short-term lower bound of 117.60 breakthrough, but the price returned back above the level, forming a high volume.


    The price is finding the first support at 118.00, the next one is at 117.00. The price is finding the resistance at 119.20.


    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 and form a “Golden Cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.


    The MACD indicator is in a neutral territory. The price is increasing.


    Trading recommendations


    We expect the third resistance level of 118.60 testing in the short term. If the price rises at the low volumes and at the relatively low volatility, the price rebound will be possible downwards.


    The downward bounce potential target is 117.00. It can be followed by a price consolidation.





    Franc (CHF)


    General overview


    The franc continues to consolidate against the dollar in anticipation of the new movement catalysts.


    The price is finding the first support at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9560. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9680, the next one is at 0.9750.


    There is a non-confirmed and a weak buy signal. The price above in the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows an upward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement and form a “Dead Cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.


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


    Trading recommendations


    We recommend going short with the first target - 0.9560. When the price consolidates under the first target it may go to the level of 0.9500.

    The yen continues to decrease against the dollar. Earlier the pair USD/JPY showed the quotations moderate decrease after the new seven year high set. The positive UK manufacturing sector PMI indices release for November allowed the bulls to recover some lost ground. The US is still encouraging traders with the positive macroeconomic statistics and in these terms does not allow the Japanese yen to strengthen its position.

    In the absence of any important macroeconomic statistics traders will focus their attention on the bond market dynamics and the "black gold" market. The German and the US Treasuries bond yields showed the moderate reduction on the first day of December.


    The pair has been near the downward trend line of 1.2500 for the second day in a row. The continued consolidation is followed by a slight rebound that is not supported by the volumes. The pair decreased on the yesterday trades and broke the support level of 1.2400.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.2300, the next one is at 1.2200. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2400, the next one is at 1.2500.


    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 and form a “Dead Cross”. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.


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


    Trading recommendations


    The trend line of 1.2400 retest is more likely to lead to the strong price support level 1.2300 decrease.

    Fundamental analysis


    The US dollar has strengthened its position against the euro and the yen - the dollar index basket (USDX) closed the trades at the mark of 88.63 near the four year high. The bears used the pair EUR/USD quotations growth to open short positions at the beginning of the week. Yesterday we again observed the German and the US bond spreads expansion. The FOMC representative Fisher pointed out that the monetary authorities are ready to reject the phrase "for considerable time" concerning the monetary policy. It should be noted that Fisher is traditionally the earlier federal funds rate increase supporter and it is not a surprise for the market.


    The pound recovered some losses. Earlier the UK construction sector PMI index release has shown the lowest value for the last twelve months that with Gilts and Treasury 10-year bond yields increase sent the pair GBP/USD to knockout. The traders systematically sold the pound and against this negative background the quotations decreased. This decrease was followed by the pound growth.


    The Japanese stock market came out the two-week consolidation. The Japan salaries report came below the traders’ expectations. With the US trading session opening we observed demand for corporate bonds that also supported the US dollar. Against this positive background bulls were able to break through the 119th figure.

    Fundamental analysis


    The dollar decreased at the beginning of the week. Earlier the dollar strengthened against all its major competitors. The US employment data supported the US dollar in November.


    The US labor market release has certainly become the main event of the previous week. Despite the fact that all the key leading indicators pointed out to the non-farm payrolls decline- we got the maximum growth levels since May 2010. In November employment growth totaled 321 thousand that is much better than traders had expected. The overall unemployment rate remained unchanged - at the level of 5.8%. It should also be noted the average hourly wage increase by 0.4% which can cause the household spending increase.


    Positive data formed a strong a strong economic growth foundation in the 4th quarter which further increased the US dollar supporters. The dollar strengthened along the entire market – the USDX index closed at the mark of 89.33 and came close to its eight year high. At the end of the trading day the pair EUR/USD and the pair GBP/USD increased and the pair USD/JPY decreased from the new maximum.


    Taking into consideration that other region news will not be released we can consider the foreign exchange market lower activity. However, the impression produced by the US employment data can extend their impact on the market for some time.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    Monday was not rich with important macroeconomic statistics. It is necessary to pay attention to the Germany industrial production report.


    There was the German industry volume orders increase by 2.5% in October that points out to the positive manufacturing sector data output. In the light of this, the European single currency can get some support, but we cannot on the strong demand.

    Pound (GBP)


    General overview


    The UK and the United States will not please traders with interesting macroeconomic releases. In this regard, traders will focus their attention on the bond market dynamics.

    Yen (JPY)


    General overview


    The personal consumption significant reduction was caused by the spring sales tax rate increase. That event has had a serious affect on the economic growth. The Japan and the US stock exchanges show a positive trend after the US strong employment release and against this background, we should expect the bullish trend continuation.

    10.12.2014


    Fundamental analysis


    The US dollar was under pressure amid the partial profit taking on long positions - the dollar index basket (USDX) finished the trading day at the mark of 89.14. From all the published macroeconomic releases we should pay attention to the Germany industrial production report that showed an increase by 0.2% in October. The German and the US Treasuries bond yields have once again expanded, indicating the bearish sentiment presence within the major currency pairs.


    The pair GBP/USD repeated the pair EUR/USD fate we observed profit-taking on short positions. The pound strengthened namely on technical factors – there was no fundamental prerequisites for the quotations growth. On the contrary, the negative UK and the US 10-year bond yields expansion points out to the bearish trend continuation. However, we should always understand that before the trend continuation often is a technical correction when institutional investors fix the partial profit taking and then again increase their portfolios at the attractive levels.


    The final Japan GDP data for the 3rd quarter were revised into the negative region to the level of -0.5% that confirms the presence of severe structural problems in the Japan economy. Within the pair USD/JPY we observed the "longs" closure and the quotations reduction. The US and Japan stock markets showed the same weakness that also put pressure on the US dollar. The pair dollar/yen has significantly strengthened for the recent weeks and the technical correction is already overdue.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    The traders’ attention will be focused on the bond market dynamics. Yesterday the Brent oil set a new five-year low that again increases the downside risks for the euro area inflation. Against this background we have observed the US and Germany bond yields expansion that is a negative factor for the single European currency.


    From the technical point of view the bearish trend is still relevant. The upward correction was formed in the short term.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.2300, the next one is at 1.2200. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2400, the next one is at 1.2500.


    There is a confirmed and a weak 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 neutral territory. The price is increasing.


    Trading recommendations


    We expect the 1.2400 line break that will open the way for the buyers to 1.2500.





    Pound (GBP)


    General overview


    The British pound showed strength amid the partial profit taking on short positions. The UK inflation expectations reduction with sales on the commodity market will form a stable downward trend.


    The strong level of 1.5660 did not have time to be a strong level after last Friday it was broken through downwards. In the light of the lower volumes there was a reversal breakthrough.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.5660, the next one is at 1.5550. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5760, the next one is at 1.5870.


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


    The MACD histogram is in a neutral territory. The price is increasing.


    Trading recommendations


    The potential growth target is the resistance level of 1.5760.





    Yen (JPY)


    General overview


    We can expect the moderate quotations decline towards 120.50 / 120.20 amid the technical correction on the Japanese stock market. Near 17 564 the Nikkei 225 stock index can find a demand that also will support the US dollar. The positive correlation between the two instruments is still strong enough due to the ultra-loose monetary policy pursued by the Bank of Japan.


    There was the price rebound downwards from the rising channel upper bound of 121.80. Amid the low volume sellers have been reducing the price for the second day in a row.


    The price is finding the first support at 119.20, the next one is at 118.00. The price is finding the first resistance at 120.40, the next one is at 121.60.


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


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


    Trading recommendations


    The downward movement will be continued. The pair may go to 118.00 soon.





    Franc (CHF)


    General overview


    The pair is under pressure amid the US Treasury bond yields decrease. The pair potential reduction is limited by the franc sales in the decreasing franc/yen, the Switzerland unexpected consumer price index decrease by 0.1% in November against the forecast of 0.0% and the extremely loose monetary policy by the Swiss National Bank.


    The price is finding the first support at 0.9680, the next one is at 0.9620. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9750, the next one is at 0.9800.


    There is a confirmed and a weak buy signal. The price is on 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.


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


    Trading recommendations


    The pair is correcting now. We expect the new growth. We advise to long with the first target - 0.9750. When the pair consolidates above the first target, we can open deals to the level of 0.9750.

    Fundamental analysis


    The US dollar was again under pressure - the dollar index basket (USDX) finished the trading day at the mark of 88.58. At the moment the dollar index fell below the strong support level of 88.19, but at the end of the trading day it was able to recover some of its lost ground. The pair EUR/USD was in demand most of the day amid the short positions closure. There are a lot of market short positions and in this regard we have seen a volatility spike within the euro/dollar. However, after the London banks closure there was a reversal.


    The UK October negative industrial release encouraged bears to open the short positions within the pair GBP/USD and at the moment quotations reached the level of 1.5630, but traders sold the US dollar along the entire market that also supported the demand for the British pound. The pair could reach the level of 1.5718 during the trades.


    The Japanese yen significantly devalued last week and it is not surprising that traders started to unload their portfolios closing "longs". It should be noted that the correction within the pair USD/JPY was formed and impressive sales on the US and Japan stock markets only increased the downward pressure on the US dollar.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)

    General overview


    Bulls tried to develop a corrective movement, using a profit-taking on the short positions on the financial institutions part.


    The UK industrial production report for October disappointed traders with its weak data - instead of the growth rate we observed a decline by 0.1%. This release supports the BoE’s 4th quarter slowdown forecast.


    The British pound is slowly correcting towards the downward trend line of 1.5760 that is the key support for the bearish trend.




    The price is finding the first support at 1.5660, the next one is at 1.5550. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5760, the next one is at 1.5870.
