    Fundamental analysis


    The US dollar has opened the trading week on the minor noteб but showed a different directed trades on the yesterday’s trading - the dollar index basket (USDX) closed the trading day at the mark of 97.17. The pair EUR/USD was again the growth leader still the dollar managed to regain some ground yesterday. The Germany and the US bond yields reduction increased the euro bullish sentiment. We got the CPI from the United States. The PPI and the retail sales negative releases did not allow us to count on the strong data release.


    During the day the GBP/USD on the contrary remained under pressure. The British Industry Confederation has reported the production orders reduction due to the "cable" revaluation. At the moment quotations reached the mark of 1.4837, but then there was a rebound in the market. The UK and the US 10-year negative bond yield spread are declining which is a positive factor for the British pound.


    In the dispute between bulls and bears the winner was not revealed during the day. The US secondary market housing sales negative macroeconomic statistics encouraged bears to short. However, the US stock market growth held back the yen from the strong growth.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    The traders’ attention will be focused on the Germany PMI manufacturing sector release. The single European currency devaluation with the geopolitical tensions decrease is positive factors for the manufacturing sector. We expect the data output at the level or slightly better than the forecasted medians that will support the pair.


    The euro strengthened against the US dollar. Its active growth was followed by the resistance level of 1.0925 breakthrough. The pair could not fixate above this level and fell below it.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.0790, the next one is at 1.0670. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.0925, the next one is at 1.1050.


    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 positive territory. The price is correcting.


    Trading recommendations


    The approach to the level of 1.0790 may lead to a price rebound upwards.





    Pound (GBP)


    General overview


    During the day traders may win back the UK and the US inflation releases.


    Last week the Bank of England signaled to traders that the inflation increase is directly proportional to the wages rapid growth. Taking into account the fact that the UK average salary decreased in January it is now extremely difficult to expect the inflation surge.


    Buyers do not hurry to continue the upward trend after the level of 1.4920 breakthrough. The price rebounded downwards and the trade stopped under the resistance level of 1.4920.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.4800, the next one is 1.4650. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.4920, the next one is at 1.5015.


    The price is in the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a horizontal movement and the Kijun-sen shows an upward movement.


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


    Trading recommendations


    The potential decrease targets are two levels of support: 1.4800, 1.4650.





    Yen (JPY)


    General overview


    The US negative macroeconomic statistics that we receive more recently deprives the dollar support. The inflation release for February also will not please traders with the strong data. On the other hand, demand for the risky assets is still preserved which is a negative factor for the low-yielding Japanese yen.


    The pair dollar/yen consolidated near the psychological level of 120.00. Then the support level of 119.20 was tested.


    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 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 consolidating.


    Trading recommendations


    We suppose the pair will go to 120.40 first. Having overcome the first target the price might go upwards to 121.60.

    26.03.2015


    Fundamental analysis


    The US dollar could compensate some of the lost positions, but then it fell again - the dollar index basket (USDX) closed the trading day at the mark of 97.15. The pair EUR/USD tested the psychological level of 1.1000 amid the Germany manufacturing PMI positive release. The indicator exceeded the annual average which indicates the manufacturing sector positive trend development. Traders fixed profits with the long positions as a result there was a technical rebound. The downward rebound was short-term and the pair increased again.


    The GBP/USD was under pressure trying its very best to reach the level of 1.5015. The UK inflation slowed down to the level of 0% on the annualized basis in February which encouraged bears to short.


    The pair USD/JPY has been trading in the flat. The UK inflation report coincided with the traders’ expectations and against this background traders closed short positions which allowed the US dollar to demonstrate its growth to the level of 119.97 at the moment. However, the US stock market weakness did not allow bulls to finish the trading day on the positive note.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    Our attention will be drawn to the IFO institute publication. The ZEW and PMI indicators show the optimistic sentiment predominance in the German business community. We received positive data. The bond market trend also confirms the upward movement development. The Germany and the US 10-year negative bond yields are declining which is a positive factor for the euro.


    There was the level of 1.0925 testing. The pair did not fixate under this level and rebounded upwards.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.0925, the next one is at 1.0790. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.1050, the next one is at 1.1150.


    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 growing.


    Trading recommendations


    The pair can fall to the support level of 1.0790.





    Pound (GBP)


    General overview


    We expect the US durable goods orders publication. American consumers are now set to save more than spend and in this regard it is difficult to count on the strong data. We still cannot count on the strong quotations growth. The pair EUR/GBP cross-rate quotations growth amid the UK and Germany negative bond yields reduction had a negative impact on the pound.


    The pair rebound from the resistance level of 1.4920 led to the consolidation formation.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.4800, the next one is 1.4650. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.4920, the next one is at 1.5015.


    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 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 correcting.


    Trading recommendations


    The sellers need to break below 1.4800 for a steady decrease. The way to the mark 1.4650 will be opened after this breakthrough.





    Yen (JPY)


    General overview


    The US macroeconomic statistics will not be able to please traders with strong data which is a negative factor for the dollar. The day before there has been the lack of investors' risk appetite which traditionally causes demand for the Japanese yen as traders close their positions within the carry trade.


    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 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 decreasing.


    Trading recommendations


    The approach to the level of 119.20 may lead to a price rebound upwards. The potential rebound target is the resistance level of 120.40.

    27.03.2015


    Fundamental analysis


    The US dollar recovered after it was again under pressure - the dollar index basket (USDX) closed the trading day at the mark of 96.97. During the day the pair EUR/USD once tested the level of 1.1050 after the US durable goods orders weak data publication. However, bulls were unable to consolidate near this level and as a result the day ended with the quotations fall.

    The pair USD/JPY was dominated by the bullish sentiment. The durable goods orders decline in the United States has increased pressure on the US stock market which has caused the demand for the Japanese yen. By the end of the day the pair dollar/yen has grown.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)

    Investors will focus their attention on the bond market dynamics. The 10-year Germany/USA and Germany/UK negative bond yields have reduced which is a positive factor for the euro. It is also necessary to note the "black gold" price increase which is also a positive factor for the single European currency.


    After the price consolidation below 1.1050 and this level test the pair rebounded downwards and broke through the support level of 1.0790.

    Yen (JPY)


    General overview

    Fundamental analysis


    The Federal Reserve board chairman Janet Yellen declared last week that the interest rate increase "can be guaranteed” in case of the economic recovery this year.


    The pair EUR/USD has enjoyed a moderate demand amid the US weak macroeconomic statistics, then the interest for the dollar buying increased. Investors expected the GDP revision for the 4th quarter in a positive way by 0.2%, but the indicator remained at the same level. By the end of the day the pair has fallen.


    The bearish sentiment also prevailed with the pair GBP/USD during the day. Traders built up short positions amid the US and the UK bond yields decline.


    There was a flat within the pair USD/JPY. The Japan negative inflation report has allowed the pair dollar/yen to strengthen to the level of 119.50, but the US weak macroeconomic statistics returned the quotes back. Nevertheless, as a result, the trading day within the pair USD/JPY finished with a sharp growth.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    We expect the downward trend development. The first March German important inflation report will be published this week. It will be the first CPI assessment which traditionally causes high traders’ reaction.


    The retail sales and durable goods negative data with the Michigan Institute consumer confidence indicator decrease point out to the Core PCE weak data output. In this regard, the US dollar will be under pressure as this indicator reflects the state of demand in the country.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.0790, the next one is at 1.0670. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.0925, the next one is at 1.1050.


    The price is 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.


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


    Trading recommendations


    The sellers need to break below 1.0790 for a steady decrease. The way to the mark 1.0670 will be opened after this breakthrough. After fixing below the level of 1.0670, the level 1.0550 will become the next target.





    Pound (GBP)


    General overview


    The UK will not please traders with the interesting macroeconomic releases and in this regard, the traders’ attention will be drawn to the statistics from overseas. Leading indicators point out to the personal consumption expenditure weak data which is a negative factor for the US dollar. The low domestic demand indicates the weak GDP and therefore the dollar loses drivers for the quotations growth.


    The bond market also confirms the bullish trend for the British pound - the UK 10-year bond yields are growing in relation to the United States and Germany ones which is a positive factor for the pound.


    The pound has been consolidating above the support level of 1.4800 the whole previous week. The short-term tests were on reduced volume and were followed by the small rebounds upwards.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.4800, the next one is 1.4650. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.4920, the next one is at 1.5015.


    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 neutral territory. The price is correcting.


    Trading recommendations


    We expect the 1.4800 line break that will open the way towards 1.4650.





    Yen (JPY)


    General overview


    Japan shall publish the industrial production report. The machinery and equipment orders decline in January indicates the Japan production capacity contraction.


    The production sector PMI indicator in February was at the level of 51.6%, indicating the purchasing managers’ low optimism in this sector. The Japan goods exports from Japan have fallen to its lowest level for five months at the end of February which clearly confirms the negative trend.


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


    The price is under the Cloud and it is in the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement.


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


    Trading recommendations


    The pair can grow to the resistance level of 120.40. After breaking 120.40 the buyers may go to 121.60 and 122.40.

    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    Germany will publish the retail sales release. The retail sales fell by 0.5% m / m in February compared with January. The consumer confidence indicator growth with the car sales increase point out to the Germans desire to spend more money than to save.

    Fundamental analysis


    We had a multidirectional trend in the Forex market yesterday. At the end of the day the pair EUR/USD has grown amid the energy prices decline and the USA statistics releases. Bears continue to monitor the situation in the oil market that supports the US dollar demand. Even the euro area inflation positive release in March failed to encourage bulls to long with euro.


    On the contrary, the pair GBP / USD enjoyed a steady demand during the day amid the UK bond yields increase. The UK GDP final data came out better than the forecasted medians which contributed to the British pound growth against the major competitors. Still the pair GBP/USD had fallen, but increased at the end of the trades.


    The Japan fiscal year completion supported the demand for the national currency. The carry trade transactions withdrawal cheered bears to short and even the US consumer confidence positive release from the Conference Board was unable to change the USD/JPY trend.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    Despite the euro zone inflation positive statistics - the single European currency cannot show any significant increase. The reason for that is the "black gold" bearish sentiment - as long as the Brent crude oil price is not fixed above the level of 57.50 $/barrel we should not expect strong demand for the pair. The US manufacturing sector business activity is of great interest.


    Having broken the strong support level of 1.0790 downwards, buyers are trying to correct the price back to the level that had already served as the strong resistance.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.0670, the next one is at 1.0550. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.0790, the next one is at 1.0925.


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


    Trading recommendations


    The approach to the level of 1.0790 may lead to a price rebound down. The potential rebound targets are the support levels of 1.0670, 1.0550.





    Pound (GBP)


    General overview


    The Center for Macroeconomic Research Markit Economics published the UK industrial production sector release. The indicator rose up to 54.4 from 54.0 in March. Capacity use rates in February allow us to count on the purchasing managers’ positive sentiment prevalence in the manufacturing sector.


    The pound has been at the level of 1.4800 for the second week, either breaking through it downwards or upwards. As long as the trend line of 1.4920 is not broken through upwards, the bearish trend potential is still preserved.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.4800, the next one is 1.4650. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.4920, the next one is at 1.5015.


    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 level of 1.4920 retest is more likely to lead to the strong price support level of 1.4650 return.





    Yen (JPY)


    General overview


    The dollar revaluation is a negative factor for the manufacturing sector and in this regard it is difficult to expect the ISM strong data publication.


    There were the highly volatile news published (the Tankan large manufacturers sentiment index, the Tankan large non-manufacturing companies sentiment index). The news turned out to be positive for the yen to a large extent.


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


    The price is under the Cloud and it is in the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a horizontal movement
    and the Kijun-sen shows an upward movement.


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


    Trading recommendations


    We believe the growth will be continued now. The first target is the level 120.40. We do not exclude the falls to 119.20.

    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    The ECB last meeting minutes will have no pressure on the euro as Mario Draghi has already noted that the regulator monetary economists raised their benchmark inflation estimates over the next two years. The US ADP employment and the ISM manufacturing sector business activity weak releases contributed to the US and Germany bond yields spread reduction which is a bullish factor for the euro.


    The strong support level of 1.0790 breakthrough was followed by the reverse breakthrough. Now the mark of 1.0925 is playing the role of the reference resistance.

    Yen (JPY)


    General overview


    The ADP and ISM negative macroeconomic statistics contributed to the US and Japan bond yields reduction which is a bearish factor for the pair USD/JPY.

    Fundamental analysis


    Volatility in the market on Monday was weak the Easter holidays. The US dollar was knocked out after the March labor market statistics release last week. The Non-Farm number amounted 126 thousand which is worse than the investment banks economists consensus forecast by 120 thousand.


    The indicator was also revised downwards by 31 thousand in February. The unemployment rate remained unchanged at the previous level of 5.5%. The only positive thing is the average earnings report. The US average hourly earnings increased by 0.28% to 24.86 dollars in March which exceeded the traders’ expectations. This release allows to count on the consumer prices growth in the second quarter. The March employment reports complemented a series of the US economic weak data that have recently come out and it took note in the market that June is the most likely period of interest rate increase, but can be probably removed from the agenda.


    At the same time, there are opposing views, considering t hat we should not pay too much attention to this unexpected labor market result and the previous time limits are quite relevant. After a high volatility on Friday the pairs EUR/USD and GBP/USD showed a flat, and the pair USD/JPY slightly increased on the yesterday’s trades.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    The European traders were on the Easter vacation yesterday. The Non-Farm negative release confirms the US economy decline, caused by the revaluation.


    In the light of this we expect the corrective movement continuation. There is ahead the strong resistance at 1.1050 and we believe this level will be tested in the short term.


    There was the downward trend line of 1.0925 breakthrough. The trend line breakthrough signals towards the downward trend reversal.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.0925, the next one is at 1.0790. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.1050, the next one is at 1.1150.


    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 under the Cloud.


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


    Trading recommendations


    After the trend line 1.0925 breakthrough upwards the way to the levels of 1.1050, 1.1150 will be opened.





    Pound (GBP)


    General overview


    The London banks were closed yesterday and in this regard we noted the sluggish trade during the day. The United States published the ISM services sector business activity release.


    The labor market negative Friday release will contribute to the US and the UK negative bond yields reduction that will generate a strong demand for the British pound.

    Due to the level of 1.4920 breakthrough upwards the downward trend is moving slowly, but surely towards the upward correction.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.4920, the next one is 1.4800. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5015, the next one is at 1.5100.


    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 histogram is in a positive territory. The price is consolidating.


    Trading recommendations


    The potential correction growth targets are the resistance levels: 1.5015, 1.5100.





    Yen (JPY)


    General overview


    The US labor market negative release did not leave to the dollar any drivers for a growth and as a result traders continue to take profits on the long positions.


    The pair USD/JPY is trading in the flat below the mark of 119.20 and tested this level at the end of the trades.


    The price is finding the first support at 118.30, the next one is at 117.50. The price is finding the first resistance at 119.20, the next one is at 120.40.

    We had a multidirectional trend in the Forex market yesterday. The German and the British traders were absent at the beginning of the week due to the Easter Monday celebration as a result we saw a calm trade. The pair EUR/USD increased to the level of 1.1000 - traders continued to win back the US labor market negative release for March, but bulls did not manage to consolidate above the 10th figure and the pair decreased.


    A similar trend was and within the pair GBP/USD. After the British pound growth to the level of 1.4980 amid the steady demand in the oil market - traders fixed profits on the long positions. The pair decrease was fallowed by a consolidation.


    The upward trend prevailed within the pair USD/JPY amid the risky assets demand. The US stock market opened the new trading week with quotations increase despite the business activity weak release for the ISM services. Then we have seen the US dollar strong quotations growth.






    Technical analysis


    Euro (EUR)


    General overview


    Traders returned to work after a long weekend. In this regard, there was a slight volatility surge. We expect the US and Germany negative bond yields.


    The ISM service sector business activity negative data point out to the corrective movement continuation.


    There has not been the round resistance level of 1.1050 test. The trading was on the lower volumes and was followed by the rebound downwards. The support level of 1.0925 was broken.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.0790, the next one is at 1.0670. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.0925, the next one is at 1.1050.


    The price is шт the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement.


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

    The strong resistance level 1.0790 test will be followed by the euro consolidation.





    Pound (GBP)


    General overview


    The traders’ attention will be focused on the Markit Economics service sector business activity release. The UK/US service sector business activity indicators will come out in the positive area amid the ISM weak data which undoubtedly will be reflected in the quotations. The upward trend in the "black gold" market is also playing into the bulls’ hands within the British pound.


    Buyers failed to fixate above the resistance level of 1.4920. The level break through was followed by the short-term price decrease.


    The price is finding the first support at 1.4920, the next one is 1.4800. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5015, the next one is at 1.5100.

    Trading recommendations


    The pair can fall to the resistance level of 1.4800.





    Yen (JPY)


    General overview


    The United States continue to disappoint investors with weak macroeconomic statistics. The ISM service sector business activity weak report was added to the negative labor market release which is a bearish factor for the dollar. The US stock market growth does not still indicate the strong demand for the risky assets.


    Before having reached the strong support level of 118.30 amid the low volume, the price reversed upwards to the correction. Buyers raised the price to the nearest resistance level of 119.20. This level was broken through and the growth continued. The resistance level of 120.40 was tested.

The pair EUR/USD was under pressure - traders continued to take profit on the long positions after the quotations growth on Friday and Monday.


    The bearish sentiment was and within the pair GBP/USD. The March UK PMI services pleased traders with the strong data, but it did not help the pound to strengthen against the US competitor.


    The pair USD/JPY closed the trading day of the week in the "green zone" amid the risky assets demand. Yesterday the world leading stock markets showed an increase that encouraged bulls to long after a short-time decrease.


    Late in the evening the United States published the US Federal Reserve last meeting minutes. The monetary regulator announced all the key milestones in its quarterly economic forecast. Moreover, the United States published the crude oil deposits report for the last week.

    Pound (GBP)


    General overview


    The March UK PMI services showed the maximum growth over the past 6 months, pointing out to the stable economic growth in the first quarter of this year. We expect the US crude oil reserves reduction which will allow the bulls to consolidate above the psychological level of $60/ barrel within the Brent crude, and thus, it will put pressure on the US dollar.


    The correctional price decline from the resistance level of 1.4920 was on the strong support level of 1.4800. The short-term trend line of 1.4800 testing was followed by the rebound upwardsand the resistance level of 1.4920.

    The Bank of Japan governor Kuroda said that the consumer price inflation was likely to reach 2% in the fiscal year of 2015/16. He also added that the real wages and real incomes would rise from April as the consequences after the sales tax increase have weakened.


    The Japan 10-year bond yields increased from 0.33% to 0.40% in March. In this regard, the Bank of Japan should not expect changes in the asset purchase program which can cause the profit-taking wave on the long positions.


    The price is finding the first support at 119.20, the next one is at 118.30. The price is finding the first resistance at 120.40, the next one is at 121.60. There is a confirmed and a strong buy signal.

    Fundamental analysis


    There was a multidirectional trend in the Forex market. The pair EUR/USD has closed the day in the "red zone" where it has been the third consecutive trading day amid the German 10-year bond yields which have fallen to the historic lows. As a result, the trading day was ended with the price decrease.


    The pair GBP/USD has finished the third trading day in a negative area as well. Traders opened short positions at the attractive levels and the price reached the level of 1.47 at the end of the day. In the long term we expect all lower levels reaching and the stabilization at around 1.30, the major turning point for the pair will be the May elections due to the expectations that the Bank of England will raise the rates after the Federal Government will make the expected movement.


    The pair USD/JPY grew at the end of the day.

The pair EUR/USD was under pressure and at the moment it reached the mark of 1.0520.
