    What currency pairs to watch today?

    After the test of the 61.8% Fibo near the 1.1270 level on H4, the EUR/USD pair has been ranging between this level and resistance at 1.1294 (50% Fibo level). The bullish strength will be confirmed if the pair manages to break the current resistance and stick above the 100-period SMA. In that case, the rise may be limited by the next resistance at 1.1343 (50-period SMA). From the downside, the break of the 1.1270 level will increase the risks of the further fall towards the 1.1252 level (200-period SMA). This is also the border of the ascending trading channel.

    Yesterday, GBP/USD slid towards the 1.2556 level. On H4, the pair is currently consolidating between 1.2556 and 1.2589-1.2597 levels. The weakness of the GBP will put additional pressure to the pair. As a result, if the 1.2556 level is broken, the next support will lie at 1.2510. On the other hand, the inability of bears to break the 1.2556 level will help bulls to retest the upper border of the consolidation range between 1.2589 and 1.2597. If these levels are broken, the pair will rise to the next resistance at 1.2632.

    AUD/USD was unable to stick near the strong resistance at 0.7047 and fell below the 0.7022 level at the beginning of the day. Bulls need to break this level to restore the upward moving channel. However, MACD formed a bearish divergence with the price that is why we may expect further fall. From the downside, the 0.7011 and 0.7 levels are important for bears.

    The kiwi has fallen below the 0.6693 level towards the 0.6674 level, which lies close to the 23.6% Fibo and 50-period SMA. The strength of bears will be confirmed if the pair manages to fall below this level and target the next support at 0.6656. The next key level for sellers will lie at 0.6629. If buyers take back control over the market, the kiwi will retest the resistance at 0.6693. The break of this level make it possible to retest the 0.6717 level.

    The Australian dollar gained on the news that China considers buying more agricultural goods from the US. On H4, AUD/USD has risen higher above the 0.7022 level and is currently targeting the resistance at 0.7047. The next key level for bulls will lie at 0.7061. If the rise is limited, the pair will fall to the 0.7011 level. The next support will lie at 0.7.

    02.07.2019

    During the early trading hours, the Australian central bank cut its interest rate to 1% with the dovish outlook. As the decision was already priced in, the Australian dollar tested the ground below 50-period SMA ahead of the meeting but bounced back on the H4 chart. At the moment it is moving towards the resistance at 0.6994. The next resistance is placed at 0.7007. After the breakout of this level, keep an eye on the resistance at 0.7022. From the downside, bears need to pull the pair towards the 0.6963-0.6956 zone. After the breakout, the fall towards the support at 0.6947 is possible.

    ·Yesterday, the US threatened to raise tariffs on $4 billion of additional EU goods due to the dispute over aircraft subsidies. Combined with the comments on the further easing by the ECB policymakers, the news pulled the euro below the 50-period and 100-period SMAs on H4. Bears need to break the support at 1.1280 to pull EUR/USD lower. The next support levels will be placed at 1.1269 and 1.1257. On the other hand, if bulls try to push the pair up, they will, at first, reach the resistance at 1.1306 (100-period SMA). After that, they face resistance at 1.3190. If this level is broken, the next one will lie at 1.1348 (50-period SMA). RSI oscillator is about to leave the oversold zone, which may provide a buying opportunity. Pay attention to the speech by the FOMC member Williams, which may affect the EUR/USD pair.

    ·The uncertainties for the British pound remain, as one of the leading candidates on the post of the UK Prime Minister plans to leave the EU without a deal on October 31. The cable has been trying to stick below the 1.2623 on H4. The next support levels will be placed at 1.2612 and 1.2603. From the upside, buyers will pay attention to the 1.2648 level. After the breakout, the pair will rise as far as the 1.2670 level (100-period SMA) is reached.

    ·The greenback has risen significantly against the Chinese yuan. The USD/CNH has been testing the resistance at 6.8855 on the H4. The next significant level is placed at 6.8917. The PBOC set USD/CNY reference rate for today at 6.8513, that is why we may anticipate the fall of the pair. Keep an eye on the support levels at 6.8636, 6.8578 and 6.8486.

    · Gold has been trading in a narrow range between $1,383 and $1,393 levels on H4. If the $1,393 level is broken, the next resistance lies at $1,404. After the breakout, the bullish strength may be limited by the resistance at $1,411. Bears need to pay attention to the $1,383 and $1,364 levels.

If bulls manage to break this level, the next resistance will be placed at $12,927. From the downside, the first support is placed at $10,563. After the break of this level, the further fall will be limited by the $9,168 level.

    The GDP growth may push the USD up

    More at: http://bit.ly/2FAMmPx

    25.06.2019

    The United States will release the level of final GDP growth on June 27, at 15:30 MT.

    This indicator is the broadest measure of economic activity, that is why traders pay high attention to it. Last time it came out lower than the expectations (2.2% vs. 2.4%). The negative data raised concerns over the slowdown of the US economy and was one of the reasons behind the projections of the rate cut by the Fed. As a result, the USD weakened. However, this time the figures may lead to a different outcome.

    • If the actual level of GDP growth is higher than the forecasts, the USD will go up;

    • If the actual level of GDP growth is lower than the forecasts, the USD will go down

    Brian Kelly, chief executive of investment management firm BKCM:

    Bitcoin is ... digital gold. And, in my opinion, it’s probably a lot better than gold, but there is no trusted third party involved, and that’s the huge difference.

    This week was super optimistic for Bitcoin bulls. Many positive events in the crypto market, including the announcement of Facebook’s crypto project Libra, pushed the digital asset higher. At the moment, it is looking forward to the breakout of the $9,800 level on the daily chart. If it happens, the next resistance will lie at $10,700. As far as it is broken, the further rise may be limited by the $11,420-$11,777 levels. From the downside, we need to pay attention to the $8,940, $8,664 and $7,970 levels.

    20.06.2019

    Key events ahead:

    The BOE monetary policy summary – 14:00 MT time

    Yesterday, the Fed Chair Jerome Powell hinted the possibility of a rate cut as early as next month. His impatient tone pushed the EUR/USD pair higher. On H4, bulls successfully broke the 50-period SMA. At the moment the EUR is testing the resistance at 1.1294. The next resistance lies at 1.1316. If this level is broken, the next level in focus for bulls will be placed close to the descending trendline at 1.1344. From the downside, we need to pay attention to the support at 1.1257. As soon as it's broken, the next support will lie at 1.1234 (100-period SMA). After that, bears will target the zone between 1.1224 and 1.1213.

    USD/JPY fell on the dovish Fed, too. On H4, the pair found the support at 107.64. If the USD continues to weaken, the next support will lie at 107.29. On the flipside, we need to pay attention to the resistance levels at 108.3 and 108.64.

    GBP/USD has been supported ahead of the BOE monetary policy summary. At the moment, it is trading near the resistance at 1.2710 on the H4. The next resistance levels lie at 1.2749 and 1.2780. If the GBP is supported today by the comment of Mark Carney, the next key level will lie at 1.2837. Bears need to keep an eye on the support levels at 1.2651 (100-period SMA), 1.2612 and 1.2557.

    The Australian dollar has been rising on the hawkish comments by the RBA governor. Right now, the aussie is rising towards the resistance at 0.6931 (100-period SMA). If this level is broken, the next resistance will be placed between 0.6958 and 0.6966. Bears need to pull AUD/USD below 0.6913-0.6905 to confirm their strength. In that case, the next key level for them will lie at 0.6873.

    Key events ahead:

    British CPI – 11:30 MT time

    Forecast: 2%

    Canadian CPI – 15:30 MT time

    Forecast: +0.1%

    Speech by the ECB president Mario Draghi – 17:00 MT time

    FOMC statement – 21:00 MT time

    After the plunge of the euro on the dovish comments by the ECB President, EUR/USD has been consolidating near the support at 1.1187 on the H4. If bears manage to break this level, the next support levels will lie at 1.1173 and 1.1165. Bulls need to push the pair higher to the resistance at 1.1209 to confirm their strength. The next resistance will lie at 1.1221. Traders will focus their attention to the fresh comments by the ECB president later today and to the FOMC meeting at 21:00 MT.


    US President Donald Trump had a telephone conversation with Chinese President Xi yesterday. The leaders agreed to meet during the G20 Summit in Japan. The news increased the risk appetite in the market. The risk-on sentiment pushed the oil prices and the Canadian dollar up.

    The price for WTI retested the $54.28 level on the news. On the daily chart, from the upside, the next resistance levels are placed at $55.71 and $57.60. Bears need to push the pair back to the support at $50.78 to confirm their strength. The next key level lies at $48.47.


    Brent, in its turn, retested the upper border of the consolidation range at $62.66. The next resistance is placed at $63.6. In the case of the fall, we need to keep an eye on the lower border of the consolidation at $57.6. The next support is at $57.5.


    On the H4, USD/CAD bounced from the 200-period SMA at 1.3427 and plunged below the 100-period SMA. The pair has tested the lows below the 1.3373 level. If bears continue to drive the loonie down, the next support will lie at 1.3357. On the other hand, pay attention to the resistance at 1.3409. The next level for bulls will lie at 1.3419. Next, the CPI release and the FOMC meeting will likely determine the direction for the pair.

    Heads up to the FOMC statement

    17.06.2019

    The Federal Open Market Committee will make its statement and announce the official rate on June 19, at 21:00 MT time.

    Despite the demands by US President Donald Trump to cut the interest rate, no changes to it are expected. Now, policymakers keep the interest rate at 2.5%. However, we may find out the hints on the possibility of a rate cut later this year. Wednesday’s statement will show how the US-China trade war and recent weaker economic data affect the Fed decisions.

    • If the Fed is hawkish, the USD will go up;

    • If the Fed is dovish, the USD will go down.

    13.06.2019

    The Australian dollar weakened because of the bigger-than-expected unemployment rate figure. On H4, AUD/USD has been targeting the first support at 0.69. A close below this level will provoke a further decline to 0.6870 with a test of 0.6887. RSI and Stochastic Oscillators are in the oversold area, the rise of the pair will be confirmed as soon as RSI crosses the 30 level bottom up and Stochastic oscillator crosses the signal line. In the case of the rebound, the important resistance is located at 0.6933.

    The Swiss franc rose on the Swiss National Bank statement. Although, the central bank kept the interest rate on hold and didn’t provide any hints on a soon increase, comments about the possible weakness of the euro and the USD supported the Swiss currency. As a result, USD/CHF fell. On H4, the pair reached the support at 0.9921 (50-period MA) but rebounded. The first resistance is located at 0.9956, a break above this level will signal a continuation of the upward movement. However, the resistance is strong and we may see a re-test of 0.9921. A break below this level will lift risks of the decline to 0.9888.

    Brent has risen significantly after news about oil tankers being attacked in the Gulf of Oman. Up to now, the oil benchmark has been moving to the first resistance at 63.73 with a test of 63.

    Risk management

    http://bit.ly/2ZqjxNl

    Risk management is the key element of Forex trading. It’s better to understand this simple fact rather sooner than later and put a lot of efforts into mastering this science. By definition, risk management is the identification, analysis, assessment, control, and avoidance, minimization, or elimination of unacceptable risks. The risk that exists for Forex traders is simple to understand: it’s the ever-present risk of a bad trade that is closed with a loss.
