  • S&P500: The threat of a nearly 10-year bull trend breaking down is high
    12/27/2018
    Current situation

    On Wednesday, US stock indexes showed a sharp increase after falling for 4 consecutive sessions before.
    DJIA rose 1086 points, or 5%, to 22878 points, which in percentage terms was the most significant one-day increase since March 2009. S&P500 added 5%, while the Nasdaq Composite rose 5.8%.
    On Tuesday, US financial markets were closed due to the celebration of Catholic Christmas, while most European markets on Wednesday were still closed due to Boxing Day. On Monday, the DJIA and S&P500 fell by 2.5%, and on Wednesday the DJIA declined at the opening of the trading day to around 21620, losing more than 1,800 points in four sessions. At the opening of the trading day on Wednesday, futures on the S&P500 stood at 2333.0, however, it increased during the day, closing the trading day on Wednesday at 2467.0.
    Financial markets continue to be feverish at the end of the year. Investors were nervous about the rising interest rates of the Federal Reserve and the US-China trade conflict. Also on the dynamics of stock markets and the dollar in recent days reflected the continuing criticism of the Fed and its head Powell by US President Donald Trump, as well as the uncertainty associated with the closure of the US government.
    On Wednesday, Kevin Hasset, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers at the White House, said there was no likelihood of the dismissal of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell, despite criticism of the central bank by President Donald Trump. The recovery of stock market quotes and the dollar on Wednesday also was helped by the positive macro data, according to which, retail sales in the US excluding cars for the period from November 1 to December 24 increased by 5.1% compared with the same period of the previous year, which was the most significant increase in six years.
    On Thursday, investors' pessimism returns to the markets. US stock indexes are falling. All 11 sectors of the S&P500 are moving towards ending the year with losses, for the first time since 2008. The threat of breaking a nearly 10-year bull trend is higher than ever before.

    Negative dynamics and pessimism of investors still prevail. On Thursday, the S&P500 declined again after rising the previous day, trading at a key support level of 2433.0 (ЕМА200 on the weekly chart). Fixing below the support level of 2380.0 (Fibonacci level 50%) and a further decline will speak about breaking the bullish trend of the S&P500.
    Only after returning to the zone above the resistance level of 2720.0, it will be possible to talk about the resumption of the bull trend. In the current situation, short positions are preferred.

      • S&P500: Optimism returns to stock market
        10/01/2019
        Current situation

        Published on Wednesday, the minutes of the December Fed meeting, hinting that the next increase in interest rates in the United States can take place not soon. The protocols showed that Fed leaders are concerned about the slowdown in global economic growth and the tension in trade relations, which destabilized markets before the December meeting. Therefore, "the extent and timing of further policy tightening has become less certain than before".
        On Friday, Powell hinted that the Fed could be more patient with raising rates. Jerome Powell said that the central bank is ready to "change" its policy "if necessary" and that it will listen carefully to the market.
        Powell’s statement supported investors, and US stock markets have grown in recent days.
        There is still a long way to full recovery, but investors' optimism is gradually returning to the stock markets.
        On Thursday, investors are expecting speeches by Fed Chairman Jerome Powell at a meeting of the Economic Club in Washington, which will begin at 17:00 (GMT). If Powell repeats his Friday statement, then stock indexes will rise. If Powell changes his mind and his Friday statement, then investors may consider this a negative signal.

        • AUD/USD: Market Expectations
          11/01/2019

          US Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell confirmed on Thursday the central bank’s intention to be patient this year in deciding to raise interest rates, taking into account the turbulence observed in recent weeks in financial markets concerned about the problems of global economic growth. “The US economy is strong”, said Powell. “The main source of concern is global growth”. He noted that the economies of the world today are much more interconnected than before, and the question is how much the slowdown in global economic growth will affect the US economy. Powell's optimism and his restraint in raising interest rates the Fed supported stock indexes and commodity currencies, including the Australian dollar.
          From the news today we should pay attention to the publication (at 13:30 GMT) of data on consumer inflation in the United States. Inflation data is one of the main, along with data on GDP and the state of the labor market, on which the Fed's monetary policy depends. It is expected that in December, inflation in the United States decreased by -0.1%, but increased by 2.2% in annual terms. If the data turns out to be better than the forecast, then the USD will be strengthened. A decrease in performance will have a negative impact on the dollar.

          In general, the long-term bearish trend AUD / USD is still in force. In the long run, short positions are preferable. The reached local maximums probably provide a good opportunity to enter a short position at AUD / USD.
          The breakdown of the support level of 0.7150 (ЕМА200 on the 4-hour chart) will cause the resumption of the AUD / USD decline with long-term targets at the support levels of 0.6910 (September 2015 minimum), 0.6830 (2016 lows).

          • GBP/USD: Market Expectations
            14/01/2018

            On Tuesday, a vote will be taken in the British Parliament on a Brexit deal with the EU. As you know, British Prime Minister Theresa May made a Brexit deal with the EU at the end of November, which caused a flurry of criticism from British parliamentarians.
            Probably, the parliament will vote against the proposed agreement and the deadline for the British withdrawal from the EU will be postponed from March 29 to a later date. The expected failure of the Brexit vote is, in general, negative news for the pound. However, the effect of this factor on the dynamics of the pound will most likely be short-term, since it has already been taken into account in the quotes.
            Below the key resistance level of 1.3035 (ЕМА200 on the daily chart) and due to important fundamental factors, GBP / USD remains under pressure.
            In case of breakdown of the support level of 1.2735 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart) GBP / USD will go into the descending channel on the daily chart and to the support levels of 1.2600 (June 2017 minimums), 1.2485, 1.2365.
            The main trend is still bearish. Below the key resistance levels of 1.3215 (Fibonacci level 23.6% of the correction to the decline of the GBP / USD in the wave that started in July 2014 near the 1.7200 level), 1.3035 (ЕМА200 on the daily chart) negative dynamics prevail. Short positions are preferred.

            • EUR/USD: Trading Scenarios
              01/15/2019

              A report published on Tuesday showed that Germany’s GDP growth over the past year was 1.5% after a 2.2% increase in 2017. The data suggest a substantial recession risk in the German economy. The minimum annual GDP growth since 2013 has been recorded.
              The slowdown in the German economy may cause weakening results for other European countries that supply components for the German automotive industry and other products.
              Hard Brexit, the escalation of trade conflicts and factors of political instability in the Eurozone are the main threats to the European economy.

              • GBP/USD: Current Dynamics
                01/16/2019

                In December, the annual rate of consumer price inflation in the UK slowed down. According to official data released on Wednesday, the UK consumer price index (CPI) rose by 2.1% in December compared with the same period last year, after rising 2.3% in November. The retail price index (RPI) +0.4% m/m, +2.7% y/y (the forecast was +0.5% m/m, +2.9% y/y), the producer selling prices index (Output PPI) -0.3% m/m, +2.5% y/y (the forecast was 0% m/m and +2.9% y/y). The data can be called ambiguous. On the one hand, they point to an increase in inflation, while inflation remains above the target level of the Bank of England at 2%. But, on the other hand, the data indicate a slowdown in inflation.
                The publication of the data remained almost unnoticed, as all market attention focused on Brexit. The proposed by Prime Minister Theresa May, the plan of the deal was rejected on Tuesday by parliament. The vote in the British Parliament on the confidence of Theresa May will begin at 19:00 (GMT). With the opening of the trading day, GBP/USD is moderately decreasing, trading in the middle of the European session near the level of 1.2850.
                Probably, Theresa May will be able to defend their post. However, the uncertainty of the future relationship between the EU and the UK is a negative factor for the pound. "Hard" Brexit without a trade agreement with the EU countries will deal a severe blow to the UK economy.

                • EUR/USD: good reasons are needed for the Eurodollar growth
                  01/17/2019
                  Current situation

                  The updated data, published on Thursday, confirmed the forecasts of economists that in December annual inflation in the Eurozone amounted to 1.6% against 1.9% in November. In conjunction with the recently published weak data, inflation indicators indicate a decrease in the likelihood that the ECB will be able to increase the rate in 2019.
                  Against the background of the situation with Brexit, the ECB is likely to take a waiting position at the next meeting to be held next week. January 24 will be published by the ECB decision on rates. Probably, the ECB will also express concern about the worsening growth prospects of the economy.
                  On Tuesday, ECB President Mario Draghi said that the European economy still needs substantial stimulation. Investors considered this a signal for a possible extension of the QE program.
                  At the same time, the Beige Book, published Wednesday, drew a positive picture for the US economy. “Overall, the outlook remains positive”, the report says.
                  Thus, according to economists, the prospects for a substantial strengthening of the euro and the growth of EUR / USD look inconclusive. Probably further weakening of the Eurodollar. For the growth of the pair EUR / USD we need good reasons and a significant weakening of the dollar.

                  Support and resistance levels
                  Despite the corrective growth of EUR / USD, which began in mid-November, negative dynamics prevail below the resistance level of 1.1570 (ЕМА200 on the daily chart).
                  In case of resumption of reduction, the nearest targets will be the support levels of 1.1350, 1.1285 (Fibonacci level 23.6% of the correction to the fall from 1.3900 level, which began in May 2014), 1.1270 (December lows), 1.1215 (November and year lows).
                  An alternative scenario involves the breakdown of the short-term resistance level of 1.1440 (ЕМА200 on the 1-hour chart) and the resumption of corrective growth. However, the growth of EUR / USD will be limited by the resistance level of 1.1570.

                  • GBP/USD: Market Expectations
                    01/18/2019


                    The pound is falling on Friday after strong growth on the eve amid rumors about a possible postponement of the UK exit from the EU, as well as the possibility of a second Brexit referendum.
                    The past week’s vote in the British Parliament on the Brexit deal with the EU failed for British Prime Minister Theresa May, and now she will have to submit a new plan on Monday. Most likely, it will differ little from the previous plan.
                    Brexit uncertainty is getting stronger, putting pressure on the pound. According to the National Bureau of Statistics (ONS), presented on Friday, retail sales in the UK decreased by 0.9% in December compared with the previous month. This report was another signal that the growth momentum of the UK economy faded in the last three months of 2018. According to economists, more stringent credit conditions, as well as the uncertainty of future UK relations with the EU have a negative impact on consumer confidence.
                    Meanwhile, the dollar remains stable and attractive, despite the domestic political crisis in the United States. Investors are worried about slowing global economic growth, trade conflicts, market volatility, partial suspension of government agencies and weak production data, and Fed officials said they would continue to be patient with rising interest rates.
                    On Friday, between 14:15 and 15:00 (GMT), important macro data from the United States will be published, including industrial production data for December and consumer confidence for January. Overall, the data is expected to be strong, despite a relative decline of values. The data should support the dollar, which is still in demand against the background of domestic political problems in Europe, as well as a slowdown in the growth of the Chinese economy due to the trade conflict between the US and China.

                    On Friday, GBP / USD is falling, bargaining at the beginning of the European session near the level of 1.2940, below the resistance levels of 1.3030 (EMA200), 1.2950 (EMA144 on the daily chart). A break of the short-term support level of 1.2770 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart) will confirm the scenario for the resumption of the bearish trend and direct GBP / USD to the support levels of 1.2600 (June 2017 lows), 1.2485, 1.2365.
                    The main trend is still bearish. Below the key resistance levels of 1.3210 (Fibonacci level 23.6% of the correction to the decline of the GBP / USD pair in the wave that started in July 2014 near the level of 1.7200), 1.3030 (ЕМА200 on the daily chart) negative dynamics prevail.
                    Support Levels: 1.2770, 1.2700, 1.2670, 1.2600, 1.2485, 1.2365, 1.2110, 1.2000

                    • EUR/USD: support and resistance levels
                      01/21/2019


                      Since mid-November, EUR / USD has been rising in the upward channel on the daily chart, the upper limit of which is above the key resistance level of 1.1565 (ЕМА200 on the daily chart). Last week, from the level of 1.1565 there was a rebound, and the pair could not develop an upward trend. EUR / USD declines again, trading on Monday below the important short-term resistance level of 1.1415 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart, EMA50 on the daily chart).
                      The immediate targets for the decline in case of breakdown of the local support level of 1.1350 will be the support levels of 1.1300, 1.1285 (Fibonacci 23.6% of the correction to the fall from 1.3900, which began in May 2014), 1.1270 (December lows), 1.1215 (November and year lows) .
                      Breakdown of the short-term resistance level of 1.1415 will be a signal for the realization of the scenario for the resumption of growth of EUR / USD. However, below the resistance level of 1.1565 negative dynamics prevail. Short positions are preferred.
                      On Thursday, the next ECB meeting will be held on monetary policy issues. Most likely, the ECB will keep current key interest rates at the same level. The basic interest rate will remain at the same level of 0%; the ECB deposit rate for commercial banks is also likely to remain unchanged at -0.4%.
                      As the ECB head Mario Draghi said last week, the recent economic indicators were worse than expected, and the European economy still needs substantial stimulation. If Mario Draghi reiterates this possibility in the coming months, the euro will decline.

                      • GBP/USD: macro statistics remain in the background
                        01/22/2019
                        Current dynamics

                        British Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday presented her new plan for secession from the European Union, which is very similar to the previous one.
                        The leader of the Labor Party of Great Britain, Jeremy Corbin, said that "it really starts to sound like something like Groundhog Day" and called for a vote in the House of Commons on the second Brexit referendum.
                        In Brussels, it was repeatedly repeated that the transaction could not be subjected to significant changes. "This withdrawal agreement cannot be changed", said Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney on Monday.
                        It seems that the situation again comes to a standstill, and the likelihood of "hard" Brexit is growing every day. This puts pressure on the pound, not allowing the uptrend to develop above the key resistance levels of 1.2955, 1.3030.
                        According to the data of the National Bureau of Statistics of the United Kingdom published on Tuesday, the number of employed citizens in the period from September to November increased by 141,000 compared with the previous three-month period, while the employment rate reached a record 75.8%.
                        The Bank of England expects that a decrease in free resources in the labor market will contribute to wage growth and keeping inflation above the target level in the coming years. However, until the situation with Brexit is resolved, the Bank of England will remain neutral in relation to changes in monetary policy, despite the high inflation rate in the country after the Brexit referendum held in June 2016.

                        Despite the failure of the Brexit vote in the British parliament, GBP / USD continues to develop an upward correction, trading above the important short-term support levels of 1.2860 (ЕМА200 on the 1-hour chart), 1.2785 (ЕМА200 on the 4-hour chart).
                        However, GBP / USD remains below key resistance levels of 1.2955 (EMA144 on the daily chart), 1.3030 (EMA200 on the daily chart).
                        Above the resistance level of 1.3030, GBP / USD growth is unlikely. The pound remains under pressure due to the domestic political crisis in the UK and Brexit.
                        In the event of a breakdown of the support level of 1.2785, the GBP / USD will go into the downstream channels on the daily and weekly charts to the support levels of 1.2600 (June 2017 lows), 1.2485, 1.2365. The main trend is still bearish. Below the key resistance levels of 1.3210 (Fibonacci 23.6% of the correction to the decline of the GBP / USD pair in the wave that started in July 2014 near 1.7200), 1.3030 (ЕМА200 on the daily chart) negative dynamics prevail and short positions are preferable.

                        • NZD/USD: New Zealand dollar strengthened on Wednesday
                          01/23/2019
                          Current Dynamics

                          As the Statistics Bureau of New Zealand reported on Wednesday, in the 4th quarter of 2018, consumer prices increased by 0.1% compared to the 3rd quarter, and the annual increase in consumer prices was 1.9%. The forecast was 0% and + 1.8%, respectively.
                          At the same time, as noted by the Bureau of Statistics, the increase in prices for domestic goods turned out to be quite high, reaching 0.7% compared with the previous quarter (the forecast was + 0.4%). The annual increase in prices for these goods was 2.7%.
                          According to economists, the published data give reason to expect further growth in domestic inflation. This is a positive factor for the New Zealand currency, as talk about the possibility of lowering the rate of the RBNZ in February subsided.
                          The New Zealand dollar rose after the publication of data on inflation, and the NZD / USD pair jumped to the level of 0.6800, through which the strong resistance level passes (200-period moving average on the daily chart).
                          Nevertheless, one should not expect a stronger strengthening of the New Zealand dollar.
                          Economists continue to point out signs of slowing economic growth and stick to the previous forecast, suggesting that the RBNZ will lower its key interest rate in 2019. But even if this does not happen, the need to raise interest rates will not arise soon. And this is a constraining fundamental factor for the further strengthening of the New Zealand currency.
                          The slowdown in the growth of the Chinese economy and the decline in imports to China represents a direct threat to the New Zealand economy, which can be expressed in a decline in the volume of export earnings and the level of New Zealand GDP. Nevertheless, the New Zealand dollar so far remains stable, despite the deterioration of the international trading environment.
                          Meanwhile, the US dollar is moderately declining on Wednesday. The DXY dollar index, which tracks the US currency against a basket of 6 other major currencies, has grown over the past four trading days by 1.0%, exceeding the 96.00 mark. However, on Wednesday, DXY futures traded near the 95.88 mark, while maintaining a long-term positive trend.

                          Trading scenarios
                          Since the beginning of the month, NZD / USD has been growing, attempting to consolidate above the key level of 0.6800 (ЕМА200 on the daily chart). The breakdown of the strong resistance level of 0.6860 (Fibonacci level 23.6% of the upward correction to the global wave of the pair's decline from the level of 0.8800, started in July 2014; the lows of the wave are near the level of 0.6260) could mean breaking the bearish trend of NZD / USD, which began in April 2018. In this case, NZD / USD will go towards the resistance level of 0.7100 (ЕМА200 on the weekly chart).
                          An alternative scenario will be associated with the breakdown of the support level of 0.6765 (EMA144 on the daily chart and EMA200 on the 4-hour chart), which confirms the return of NZD / USD to a bearish trend.
                          Below the support level of 0.6765 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart) short positions are again preferred.

                            24/01/2019

                            The focus of traders today is the ECB meeting and its decision on the interest rate and the QE program. The ECB's decision on interest rates will be published at 12:15 (GMT), and the ECB press conference will begin at 13:30. The ECB is likely to keep current key interest rates unchanged today. The basic interest rate will remain at the same level of 0%; the ECB deposit rate for commercial banks is also likely to remain unchanged at -0.4%. If the ECB head Mario Draghi again signals the extension or expansion of the QE program, the fall of the Eurodollar will be even stronger.
                            The immediate targets for the decline are support levels of 1.1300, 1.1285 (Fibonacci level 23.6% of the correction to the fall from 1.3900, which began in May 2014), 1.1270 (December lows), 1.1215 (November and year lows). Negative dynamics prevail.
                            The alternative scenario assumes the resumption of correctional growth with targets at resistance levels of 1.1510, 1.1560 (EMA200 on the daily chart). In this case, the breakdown of the short-term resistance level of 1.1405 will be a signal for the implementation of this scenario.

                              • WTI: Market Expectations
                                25/01/2019

                                The oil market traders seem to be confused due to a number of conflicting fundamental factors. The acute political crisis in Venezuela, which has the world's largest oil reserves on the one hand, and the growth of commercial oil reserves in the United States last week, as well as ongoing trade conflicts and a slowdown in the global economy, on the other hand, create multidirectional oil price vectors.
                                On Friday (19:00 GMT), a weekly report from the American oilfield services company Baker Hughes on the number of active oil drilling rigs in the United States will be published. Their number declined again in the previous week and currently stands at 852 units against the maximum of 887 units reached at the end of 2018. However, there is a recovery in oil prices after falling in the 4th quarter of 2018 (oil prices in the end of December hit bottom near the mark of 42.00 dollars per barrel of WTI crude oil). Rising oil prices create an incentive for American oil companies to increase production, which, in turn, is a deterrent to rising oil prices. The increase in the number of drilling rigs is a negative factor for oil prices.
                                WTI crude oil prices reached important resistance levels near $ 52.75 per barrel (ЕМА50 on the daily chart, upper line of the downward channel on the daily chart).
                                OsMA and Stochastic indicators on the 1-hour, 4-hour, daily charts recommend short positions.
                                Returning to the zone below 52.75 creates the risk of a resumption of the bearish trend that began in early October 2018.
                                Also, in the current price dynamics it is possible to distinguish a range with upper and lower lines passing through the marks 54.10, 50.25. Exit from this range can also determine the direction of further price movement.
