    Brent: pressure on oil prices persists
    10/07/2017

    Current dynamics

    After some decline during the Asian session, the dollar today resumed its growth. Ambiguous data on the US labor market for June, published on Friday, caused a surge in volatility in the foreign exchange market. And yet, despite the fact that unemployment rose in June from 4.3% to 4.4%, and the average hourly earnings in the US for June was 0.2% (the forecast was 0.3%), in general, the data On the labor market in the US can be called strong. The NFP indicator in June was 225,000 (against the forecast of 179,000). The dollar strengthens in the foreign exchange market, and oil prices decline.
    Additional pressure on oil prices had an increase in oil production in the US last week. According to the Energy Information Administration of the country, oil production in the US last week increased to 9.33 million barrels per day from 9.25 million barrels a day a week earlier. Oil production at the same time exceeded the level of the previous year by almost 11% and returned to its 10-month maximum.
    Published on Friday, data from the oil service company Baker Hughes, also indicated an increase in drilling activity in the industry. So, the number of oil drilling rigs in the US increased last week by seven units to 763 units, which is more than 2.1 times higher than a year ago. Against the backdrop of a sharp increase in oil production in the US, which alleviates OPEC's efforts to stabilize the balance in the oil market, OPEC is considering setting restrictions on oil production in Nigeria and Libya.
    But, at the same time, Saudi Arabia plans to spend $ 300 billion on oil and gas projects in the next 10 years, the head of Aramco said today. Last week, by the way, Saudi Arabia reported that it reduces official oil prices for Asia.
    Despite the agreements to limit oil production, the struggle for its share in the oil market does not stop. Especially, after the US begins to fill successfully the vacant niches in the oil market with a growing supply of US shale oil.
    World oil production is still high, oil reserves remain at historical highs, but the demand for oil is not growing.
    Most likely, oil prices will continue to decline in the short term. The next weekly official data on oil reserves in the US will be released on Wednesday (14:30 GMT). If the data indicates an increase in inventories, then this will have additional pressure on oil prices.

    Support and resistance levels
    The price for Brent crude oil was down 2.8% on Friday, coming close to $ 46.30 per barrel. At the beginning of today's European session, the price for Brent crude is again traded near this mark, remaining under pressure. Last week, the price could not develop an upward movement above resistance level 49.60 (EMA50 and the upper limit of the descending channel on the daily chart). Over the last 3 trading sessions, the price has lost more than 7%, and having broken short-term support levels of 48.50 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart), 47.80 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart), continues to decline in the downlink on the daily chart with immediate targets at levels Support 46.20 (Fibonacci level 50% correction to the decline from the level of 65.30 from June 2015 to the absolute minimums of 2016 near the mark of 27.00), 44.50 (lows of the year). The more distant target is the level 41.70 (the Fibonacci level of 38.2% and the lower boundary of the descending channel).
    Strengthening the foreign exchange market dollar also contributes to lower commodity prices and oil prices. Only if the price is restored above the level of 48.50 can you consider the long positions again. The trend again changed to negative, and negative moods continue to dominate the oil market.
    Support levels: 46.20, 45.50, 44.50, 41.70
    Resistance levels: 47.80, 48.50, 48.80, 49.60, 50.70, 51.00

    Trading Scenarios

    Sell Stop 46.25. Stop-Loss 46.88. Take-Profit 46.00, 45.50, 44.50, 43.50, 41.70
    Buy Stop 46.88. Stop-Loss 46.25. Take-Profit 47.25, 47.80, 48.50, 49.60, 50.00, 50.70, 51.00

      AUD/USD: in July - in negative territory
      11/07/2017

      Current dynamics

      Despite the growth of the third trading session in a row, the pair AUD / USD has been trading on negative territory since the beginning of the month. As you know, last week the Reserve Bank of Australia left the interest rate unchanged at 1.50%, which has been at this level since August of last year. RBA Governor Philip Lowe held to neutral rhetoric, saying that the growth rate of wages remains low and "probably will be so for some time".
      At the same time, the US dollar keeps the positions won earlier in the foreign exchange market. A number of positive macroeconomic data received from the US last week indicates a stable recovery of the economy and the labor market in the United States.
      The number of new jobs in the non-agricultural sector in June grew by 222,000 in the US (the forecast was +174,000 new jobs). The estimates for May and April are also revised upwards.
      The index of supply managers (PMI) for the US service sector in June, according to the Institute of Supply Management (ISM), was 57.4 compared to 56.9 in May. The service sector accounts for the largest part of US GDP, and the fact that in June the growth of business activity accelerated in this area, indicates a positive momentum for growth in the US economy.
      This week, market participants will closely follow the statement (on Wednesday 10:00 (GMT) and on Thursday 14:00 (GMT)) of the chairman of the Federal Reserve, Janet Yellen. If, in her report to Congress, she confirms the Fed's intention to adhere to the planned tightening of monetary policy, the strengthening of the US dollar will continue.
      Today, another representative of the Fed, Fed President San Francisco Williams, said that the pace of growth in wages and inflation in the US coincide with his predictions, and another increase in rates still fits into a "reasonable baseline scenario".
      While the RBA says that "the strengthening of the Australian dollar will complicate the adjustment of the economy," and "the continuation of rates unchanged corresponds to the goals of GDP, inflation" in Australia, the Fed systematically tightens monetary policy in the US. The difference between the monetary policy of the Fed and the RBA will be an important fundamental factor that stimulates the sale of the AUD / USD pair.

      Support and resistance levels
      In general, the positive dynamics of the AUD / USD pair persists while it is trading above the key support level of 0.7530 (EMA200, EMA144 on the daily chart).
      At the moment, the pair AUD / USD is trading on the short-term balance line 0.7608 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart) and is trying to develop positive dynamics within the short-term upward channels on 1-hour and 4-hour charts.
      Only in case of breakdown of short-term support levels of 0.7585 (EMA144 and the bottom line of the uplink on the 4-hour chart), 0.7570 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart) can we speak of the predominance of the downside dynamics of the AUD / USD pair.
      The fastening above the local resistance level 0.7635 will create prerequisites for the further growth of the AUD / USD pair.
      In case of the development of the downward dynamics and breakdown of the key support level 0.7530 (EMA200, EMA144 on the daily chart), the bearish trend will again prevail in the dynamics of the AUD / USD pair. In this case, the targets will be the levels of 0.7460 (the Fibonacci level is 23.6% of the correction to the wave of decline in the pair since July 2014, the minimum wave is near 0.6830), 0.7420, 0.7375, 0.7330 (November and May lows).
      Support levels: 0.7608, 0.7585, 0.7570, 0.7530, 0.7500, 0.7460, 0.7420, 0.7375, 0.7330
      Resistance levels: 0.7635, 0.7710, 0.7780, 0.7840

          GBP/USD: pound received support
          12/07/2017
          Current dynamics

          After the National Bureau of Statistics of Great Britain presented today very encouraging data from the UK labor market, the pound strengthened in the foreign exchange market. According to the data provided, for the period March-May unemployment fell to 4.5%, the lowest level since 1975, while the number of unemployed fell by 64,000, and the number of workers reached a record high. The average salary (excluding premiums) in March-May increased by 2% (with the forecast for growth of 1.8%). However, real wages in the UK remain, nevertheless, at a low level, as consumer prices grew faster than wages. In May, inflation was 2.9%, demonstrating the fastest growth rates in almost four years. The decline in the British pound on the outcome of the referendum on Brexit provoked an increase in import prices and spurred inflation.
          At a meeting of the Bank of England in June, three of the eight members of the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee voted to tighten monetary policy. The Bank of England Governor Mark Carney also signaled the likelihood of policy tightening in the future. However, for this, according to Karni, requires a strong growth of companies' investments, which can neutralize the slowdown in the pace of consumer spending.
          But there is another opinion on the tightening of monetary policy in the UK. So, today the Deputy Governor of the Bank of England Ben Broadbent said that, given the uncertainty of the economic outlook, "at the moment it is not worth making a decision (regarding raising rates)", and "there are many factors that can not be accurately assessed".
          This week, market participants will closely follow the speech (Wednesday and Thursday 14:00 (GMT)) of the Fed Chairman Janet Yellen. It is likely that in her report before the US Congress she will confirm the Fed's intention to tighten monetary and credit policy. In this case, the strengthening of the US dollar will resume.
          Also today, from 14:00 (GMT), volatility in the foreign exchange market could rise sharply due to the publication of the Bank of Canada's interest rate decision, which must be taken into account when making trading decisions.

          Support and resistance levels
          After the publication of data on the UK labor market, the pair GBP / USD rebounded from the key support level 1.2810 (EMA200 on the daily chart) and is currently trading above support level 1.2850 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart). However, the positive momentum may not be enough to restore the positive dynamics of the pair GBP / USD.
          Indicators OsMA and Stochastics on the daily chart turned to short positions, signaling the continuation of the downward dynamics.
          The support levels of 1.2850, 1.2810 are good deterrent levels from the further decline of the GBP / USD pair. In case of breakdown of the support level 1.2745 (EMA144 on the daily chart), the GBP / USD decline will accelerate to targets near the levels of 1.2590 (June lows and the lower limit of the uplink on the weekly chart), 1.2365, 1.2110.
          If the positive dynamics of the pound returns, then the GBP / USD pair will resume growth with targets of 1.2980, 1.3050 (May highs), 1.3100, 1.3210 (Fibonacci level 23.6% correction to the pair GBP / USD decline in the wave, which began in July 2014 Near the level of 1.7200 and the upper limit of the rising channel on the weekly chart).
          Support levels: 1.2850, 1.2810, 1.2745, 1.2700, 1.2640, 1.2590, 1.2550, 1.2365, 1.2110

            AUD/USD: near 4-month highs
            13/07/2017

            Current dynamics

            Today, the pair AUD / USD again approached the annual highs of 4-month old near the 0.7745 mark. The Australian currency is growing, receiving double support from strong data on China's foreign trade balance and after the publication of the consumer price inflation indicator in Australia. According to data presented today (04:00 GMT + 3) by the Melbourne Institute, expectations for consumer price inflation rose 4.4% in July (the previous value + 3.6%). The high value of the indicator is positive for AUD.
            A little later (05:00 GMT + 3) came out strong indicators on China's trade balance. According to the data provided, exports in June increased (for the fourth consecutive month) by 11.3% compared to the same period of the previous year after an increase of 8.7% in May.
            The annual import growth in June was 17.2% after the growth of 14.8% in May (the forecast was + 12.4% compared to the same period of the previous year).
            China's foreign trade surplus rose to $ 42.77 billion in June from $ 40.81 billion in May, with a forecast of $ 44.2 billion; By about 5%.
            China is the largest trade and economic partner and buyer of primary commodities in Australia. Iron ore and coking coal account for about 30% and 12% of Australia's commodity exports, respectively. And most of the Australian raw materials exports are directed to China. Therefore, strong macroeconomic indicators from China have a positive impact on the quotes of the Australian currency.
            At the same time, the AUD / USD pair is growing on the weakening of the US dollar after yesterday, Fed Chairman Janet Yellen in his report in the US Congress confirmed plans for a "gradual" increase in interest rates. However, in her opinion, it is necessary to adhere to the gradual way of raising interest rates in the next few years.
            Today, Janet Yellen speaks to the US Senate Banking Committee. Investors are mostly skeptical about further tightening of monetary policy in the US against the backdrop of a slowdown in inflation. It is likely that today Janet Yellen will not say anything new. Market participants are ready for the December rate increase in the US, but will closely follow the performance of Yellen. Any hints from Yellen about the possibility of raising the rate in September will cause a sharp increase in the US dollar. Janet Yellen's speech will begin at 17:00 (GMT + 3).

            Support and resistance levels
            At the beginning of today's European session, the pair AUD / USD is trading at the upper border of the rising channel on the daily chart, closely approaching the annual highs near the 0.7745 mark.
            The positive dynamics of the AUD / USD pair is maintained above the key support level of 0.7530 (EMA200, EMA144 on the daily chart). The targets for the AUD / USD pair in case of its further growth will be the levels of 0.7780 (EMA144 on the weekly chart), 0.7840 (the Fibonacci retracement level of 38.2% correction to the wave of decline from July 2014, the minimum wave is near 0.6830), 0.8000 (EMA200 On a weekly chart).

              S&P500: pending key inflation data
              14/07/2017

              Current dynamics

              Today, the main US stock indexes are traded in a narrow range in anticipation of the publication of key US inflation indicators. Investors will also closely monitor the reporting of the largest US banks. Today begins the reporting period for US banks, including Citigroup Inc., J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., Wells Fargo & Co. and PNC Financial Services Inc.
              Shares of American banks in the last three weeks gained almost 6% in the hope that a gradual increase in interest rates will lead to an increase in their income from lending. The Fed has planned another rate hike this year, but some investors are still skeptical about further tightening of monetary policy. Fed executives are calling for waiting for more robust signals about inflation in the US to continue raising interest rates in the US.
              This opinion was yesterday held by the President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas Robert Kaplan, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis Neil Kashkari, a member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, Lael Brainard.
              In general, so far the positive dynamics of the indices against the backdrop of the growth of corporate profits remains. However, the rhetoric of the world's central banks has changed toward a more stringent monetary policy. It seems that, amid the strengthening of the world economy, stimulating programs in countries with the largest economies may soon be curtailed. And this is a negative factor for the stock markets.
              At (12:30 GMT) the US consumer price index and retail sales report are published. Investors will pay close attention to the data to understand whether the recent weakening of inflation is temporary. The reaction of the dollar and the US stock market to inflation data is acute, given that these data, along with data on the labor market and GDP, play a key role in the decision making by the Fed at the interest rate.
              It is expected that in June, the consumer price index (CPI) rose by 0.1% (after a decrease of 0.1% in May) and by 1.7% in annual terms. Such an increase in inflation will not satisfy the Fed and will help to weaken the US dollar, but will also support American stock markets. But if the consumer price index comes out in June with better indicators than the forecast, the dollar will strengthen in the foreign exchange market, while stock indices, including the S & P500 index, will decrease.
              *)An advanced fundamental analysis is available on the Tifia website at tifia.com/analytics

              Support and resistance levels
              With the opening of today's trading day, the S & P500 index slightly decreased, trading in a narrow range near the mark of 2445.0.
              The OsMA and Stochastic indicators on the daily chart are on the buyers side, however, on the 4-hour, 1-hour chart, the indicators turned to short positions, signaling an overdue correction after many days of growth.
              In the event of a downward correction, the S & P500 may fall to the support levels 2433.0 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart), 2426.0 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart and the bottom line of the uplink on the daily chart).
              The OsMA and Stochastic indicators on the weekly chart also turned to short positions.
              If the negative trend increases, then the deeper decline of the index to support levels of 2405.0 (June and July lows), 2390.0, 2355.0, near which the bottom line of the rising channel passes on the weekly chart, is possible.
              While the price is above 2325.0 (EMA200 on the daily chart), 2305.0 (Fibonacci level of 23.6% correction to growth since February 2016), the positive dynamics of the index remains. In the event of a breakdown of the resistance level 2452.0 (June and year highs), the growth of the index will resume.
              Support levels: 2433.0, 2426.0, 2405.0, 2390.0, 2355.0, 2325.0, 2305.0

                DJIA: the indices rose after the publication of inflation data
                17/07/2017

                Current dynamics

                After Friday's weak data on retail sales and inflation in the US were published, the main US stock indexes rose. As the US Department of Labor reported on Friday, the consumer price index (CPI) remained unchanged in June compared to the previous month (0.0% in June, + 1.6% in annual terms, vs forecast +0.1% and +1.7%, respectively). Retail sales in June, according to the data presented, fell by 0.2% compared to May (sales were expected to increase by 0.1%). These data are key for the Fed in the matter of making an interest rate decision.
                Investors bought shares and bonds on Friday, as weak data on retail sales and inflation suggest that the Federal Reserve is unlikely to raise interest rates and reduce assets in the coming months. Against the background of purchases of 10-year US Treasury bonds, their profitability declined from 2.319% to 2.298% after the publication of macro data.
                The S & P500 index rose 0.5% on Friday to 2459.00 points. The Dow Jones Industrial Average index increased by 0.4% to 21637.00 points. Last week was the most successful for both indices from the end of May. So, S&P500 for the week gained 1.4%, and DJIA grew by 1%.
                On Friday, the reporting season for US banks began, the results were published by Citigroup Inc., J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., Wells Fargo & Co. and PNC Financial Services Inc. Hopes for high financial results of companies for the 2-nd quarter also support the US stock indexes.
                Shares of US banks over the past three weeks have risen in price. Also last week, shares of technology companies in the United States grew. The subindex of the technology sector of the S & P500 grew by 3.8%, showing the best weekly result in 2017.
                Now, after the publication of the data, the probability of an increase in the rate in December, according to the CME Group, fell below the level of 50%. President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas Robert Kaplan on Thursday made it clear that he would like to wait for the acceleration of inflation before raising interest rates again. It is likely that the Fed in the future may be more prudent approach to raising rates. If the Fed again adheres to mild rhetoric regarding monetary policy, it will stimulate the US stock market to further growth.

                  GBP / USD: The pound fell after the publication of inflation data
                  18/07/2017
                  Current dynamics

                  After the data on inflation in the UK were published at the beginning of today's European session, the pound fell sharply in the foreign exchange market. According to the National Bureau of Statistics, the UK consumer price index in June rose by 2.6% compared with the same period last year after rising by 2.9% in May.
                  Although annual inflation remains well above the target level of the Bank of England at 2%, and consumer prices are growing stronger than the level of wages. The price pressure on the company is already decreasing for the 5th consecutive month. Wage growth rates lag behind inflation, so the British have already reduced their spending, which led to a slowdown in the economy in the first quarter of this year.
                  The fall in household incomes, caused by a sharp drop in the pound, is a deterrent for the Bank of England in raising interest rates, despite high inflation.
                  Today at 13:30 (GMT) the speech of the head of the Bank of England Mark Carney is scheduled. It will be interesting to hear what he thinks about the future plans of the Bank of England against the background of inflation data presented today.
                  The pound fell sharply today and against the US dollar, despite the fact that the dollar fell significantly today in the foreign exchange market after it became known that the Obamacare health program will not be canceled in the near future. This means that other Trump legal initiatives (revision of the tax code or fiscal stimulus) may also run into obstacles. The ICE dollar index, reflecting the value of the dollar against a basket of six other currencies, fell by 0.3% on Tuesday, to a 10-month low. Since the beginning of this year, the dollar index fell by 7.2%.
                  As the Deputy Governor of the Bank of England Ben Broadbent said last week, "at the moment, it is not worth making a decision (regarding raising rates). There are many factors that can not be measured accurately, "given the uncertainty of the prospects for the UK economy.

                    XAG/USD: precious metals rose in price
                    19/07/2017

                    Current dynamics

                    Against the backdrop of a sharp weakening of the US dollar and again increased political uncertainty in the US, precious metals are once again rising in price. Last week, the dollar showed the strongest decline since May. Chairman of the US Federal Reserve Board, Janet Yellen, was more cautious in favor of further raising interest rates in the US. Published on Friday, inflation data in the US, which turned out to be much weaker than expected, triggered large-scale sales of the US dollar. At the moment, investors estimate the 48% probability that the Fed will perform another rate hike this year.
                    Yesterday, the dollar received another blow after the news that the Republicans had failed to abolish the Obamacare Act. Another failure of the Republicans again brought back concerns about the ability of the presidential administration to fulfill pre-election promises to stimulate the US economy.
                    The political uncertainty, aggravated in the US, weak US macroeconomic indicators, which contribute to the weakening of the dollar, once again raise investors' interest in buying precious metals, including silver. Precious metals do not bring investment income. However, in the context of increasing economic or political uncertainty, the demand for precious metals as a safe haven is growing.
                    We are waiting for the data from the USA today. At 12:30 (GMT), data from the US primary housing market for June. The indicator of the dynamics of new building permits is an important indicator of the housing market. If the data prove to be better than the forecast (1.20 million new permits), the dollar will strengthen on the foreign exchange market. Otherwise, and with the arrival of weak data, the US dollar will decrease, and silver prices will rise.

                    Support and resistance levels
                    The pair XAG / USD was able to break through the short-term resistance level at 16.02 and is growing, pushing back at the end of last week from the support level of 15.60.
                    Nevertheless, more confident growth of the pair XAG / USD and consideration of long positions on it can be said after the pair XAG / USD consolidates above the important short-term resistance level of 16.37 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart).
                    In the meantime, the negative medium-term dynamics prevails, while the pair XAG / USD is traded in the descending channel on the daily chart, well below the resistance level of 17.05 (EMA200, EMA144 on the daily chart). The lower boundary of the channel passes near the support level of 14.30 (the minimums of January 2016).
                    In case of breakdown of the support level of 16.02, the fall of the pair XAG / USD will resume.
                    The level of 14.30 will become the target mark with a further decline in the pair XAG / USD. A more distant goal is the level of 13.65 (the minimum of the global wave of decline in the pair XAG / USD from September 2012).

                      USD/JPY: Bank of Japan did not change monetary policy
                      20/07/2017
                      Current dynamics

                      As expected, the Bank of Japan has upheld its monetary policy, while once again lowering the forecast for inflation. Now, the Bank of Japan expects that inflation will reach 2% around 2019 fiscal year, that is a year later than previously forecast. Last month, the Bank of Japan did not begin to change its monetary policy, retaining the aggressive incentive program, which represents the purchase of government bonds by about 80 trillion yen per year (720 billion US dollars), as well as maintaining the target yield of 10-year Japanese bonds around 0% and maintaining a short-term rate of -0.1%. This decision was expected by the majority of market participants and economists.
                      The economy of Japan shows growth, albeit at a modest pace. However, inflation fluctuates near zero levels against the central bank's target level of 2%.
                      During today's press conference, the Governor of the Bank of Japan Haruhiko Kuroda called the target level of 2% "world standard". "This level is necessary to maintain a stable exchange rate", Kuroda said and reiterated that the Bank of Japan continues to adhere to this target level.
                      The lower inflation forecasts indicate the likelihood that the Bank of Japan will not change its monetary policy, although other central banks are inclined to tighten it, in the foreseeable future. The Japanese yen may decline due to tightening of monetary policy in other economically developed countries, which reduces the attractiveness of the yen for investors. The Japanese yen can still be in demand, but only as a safe haven.

                      Not having reached the key support level 111.50 (200, 144 on the daily chart), the pair USD / JPY has grown today after the publication of the decision of the Bank of Japan. The pair USD / JPY broke through the important short-term resistance level 112.20 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart). In case of breakdown of one more important level of resistance 112.60 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart), the pair USD / JPY growth may continue to the upper boundary of the range between the levels 114.40 and 108.40. If the pair USD / JPY can gain a foothold above 114.40, then its growth may continue with the targets 116.00 (Fibonacci level 61.8%), 118.60 (December and January highs), 121.30 (highs in January 2016) against the background of the difference in monetary policy of the Fed and Bank of Japan.
                      Nevertheless, against the backdrop of the long-term bullish trend of the pair USD / JPY periods of active downward correction are highly probable, when the demand for yen rises in periods of geopolitical and financial instability.
                      The reverse scenario involves a breakdown of the support level of 111.50 and a further decline in the pair USD / JPY with the target of 110.10 (Fibonacci level of 38.2% of the correction for the pair growth since August of last year and the level of 99.90), 108.40 (the lower bound of the range).
                      Support levels: 111.50, 111.00, 110.10, 109.00, 108.40, 108.00, 106.50

                        EUR/USD: The euro rose after the ECB meeting
                        21/07/2017
                        Current dynamics

                        Today the pair EUR / USD continued its growth, started on Thursday after the ECB meeting and press conference, at which ECB President Mario Draghi spoke. He was very careful in his statements and tried not to cause unnecessary emotions for traders who traded the euro.
                        "We studied the economic situation in the Eurozone and noticed the acceleration of economic growth with still slow inflation", Draghi said. He also noted that the future of the QE program during the two-day ECB meeting was not discussed, and "the discussion of this topic should begin in the fall".
                        Investors took the words of Draghi as a signal to buy the euro. The pair EUR / USD reached almost 2-year high at 1.1679 in the first half of the European session.
                        The growth of the pair was also promoted by Bloomberg's announcement that transactions in the companies belonging to the US president will be checked as part of the Trump investigation. This publication has increased the uncertainty surrounding the presidential administration and its plans to accelerate economic growth in the United States.
                        Meanwhile, investors continue to evaluate ECB President Mario Draghi's comments on Thursday and expect ECB plans to wind down the stimulus program to be released in September.
                        Meanwhile, according to the results of the poll published on Friday, in the next two years, inflation in the Eurozone will not reach the target level set by the ECB slightly below 2.0%.
                        Quarterly survey conducted by the ECB among economists showed that this year inflation will be 1.5%, in the next - 1.4%, and in 2019 - 1.6%. According to the latest data, for the year prices rose by only 1.3%. Forecasts for each year were lowered by 0.1 percentage points compared to the results of the previous poll, which was held in April.
                        Yesterday, Mario Draghi again stressed that the ECB leadership will be extremely cautious approach to the issue of curtailing its stimulus measures, focusing on the growth rate of inflation in the Eurozone.
                        And the more inflation will be below the target level, the further the ECB will postpone the decision on curtailing the stimulus program and raising the interest rate in the Eurozone. And this is a negative factor for the euro.
                        Today, at the end of the trading week, some investors will want to record profits in short positions on the US dollar, which may provoke some strengthening. It is likely that this may occur closer to the end of the US trading session.

                        Support and resistance levels
                        Yesterday, the pair EUR / USD broke through the key resistance level near the 1.1610 mark (EMA200 on the weekly chart), continuing to trade in the uplink on the daily chart.
                        The positive dynamics of the EUR / USD pair remains. In case of consolidation above resistance level 1.1610, the pair EUR / USD growth may continue. In this case, the target will be the resistance level 1.1785 (the Fibonacci retracement level of 38.2% of the corrective growth from the lows reached in February 2015 in the last wave of the global fall from 1.3900).
                        The reverse scenario implies a decrease to the zone below the level of 1.1285 (Fibonacci level of 23.6%), which will increase the risks of return to the downtrend.
                        In the case of a breakdown of the short-term support level 1.1500 (EMA200 and the bottom line of the uplink on the 1-hour chart) and the acceleration of the downward dynamics, this scenario may develop.

                          Brent: the plan to reduce the excess supply is not working.
                          24/07/2017
                          Current dynamics


                          On Monday in St. Petersburg is a meeting of some members of OPEC and countries outside the cartel. Saudi Energy Minister Khaled Al-Falih and Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak will chair this meeting. The risk of failure of a deal to reduce oil production is in full swing, although, according to the Saudi Energy Minister, the degree of observance of quotas for oil production in the history of OPEC is a record, and the total degree of compliance with oil production quotas for 6 months was 98%. It was assumed that the agreement would reduce world oil production by almost 1.8 million barrels a day and lead to a reduction in excess supply in the market. In recent days, there has been some recovery in prices against the weakening dollar. However, oil prices remain steadily low due to the continued oversupply.
                          It seems that the oil cartel still does not know how to deal with the US extraction, which remains outside the control of OPEC. Producers of oil shale in the US took advantage of the situation and, lowering the cost, increased production.
                          Quotations of Brent crude oil fell 2.5% to $ 48.06 per barrel on Friday, due to doubts about OPEC's ability to restore balance on the market.
                          According to the report of the oilfield service company Baker Hughes, presented on Friday, which is an important indicator of the activity of the oil sector of the US economy and significantly affects the quotes of oil prices, the number of active drilling platforms in the US is 764 units. The US increased production by 750,000 barrels a day to 9.3 million barrels a day, the highest since summer 2015. In fact, by the efforts of the US alone, more than a third of the reduced production was offset. According to OPEC representatives, one should not expect that some important actions will be taken Monday, although Nigeria, which, being a member of OPEC, remained outside the framework of the agreement, agreed to limit oil production to the level of 1.8 million barrels a day. Negotiations on limiting production in Libya and Nigeria are still underway.
                          It is likely that without additional measures, OPEC will not be able to reverse the situation with an excessive supply of oil. And against this background, oil prices will be subject to further decline. As long as the dollar stabilizes in the foreign exchange market, the pressure on oil prices will increase.

                          Support and resistance levels
                          The price of Brent crude continues, meanwhile, to move in the uplink on the daily chart near the important support level of 48.50 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart).
                          Indicators OsMA and Stochastics on the 1-hour, 4-hour charts turned to long positions. If the price can consolidate above the short-term resistance level 49.10 (EMA50 on the daily chart), its growth may continue to the resistance level of 50.70 (EMA200, EMA144 on the daily chart, and the Fibonacci level of 61.8% correction to the decline from the level of 65.30 from June 2015 Year to the absolute minimums of 2016 near the mark of 27.00). Nevertheless, while the price is below the level of 50.70, the negative dynamics prevails. In case of breakdown of the 48.00 support level and renewal of the decline, the targets will be support levels of 47.70, 46.20 (50% Fibonacci level), 44.50 (year lows). The more distant goal is the level 41.70 (the Fibonacci level of 38.2% and the lower boundary of the descending channel on the weekly chart).
                          Only in the case of fixing the price above the level of 50.70 can we again consider medium-term long positions.
                          Support levels: 48.50, 48.00, 47.70, 46.20, 45.50, 44.50, 41.70

                            EUR/USD: The dollar remains weak
                            25/07/2017
                            Current dynamics

                            "Core inflation is still slow and has not yet shown convincing signs of acceleration. Price pressure and wage growth are still restrained, "European Central Bank board member Yves Mersch said today in Singapore.
                            The rate of price growth in the Eurozone last month slowed to 1.3% per annum, being significantly below the target level of the ECB, which is just under 2%. Because of low inflation, the Eurozone economy still needs "very significant" incentive measures, according to Yves Mersch.
                            Today, the pair EUR / USD resumed its growth after the release of positive macroeconomic indicators at the beginning of the European session. So, the PMI index in the manufacturing sector of the Eurozone in July was 56.8, the PMI index for the services sector - 55.4, the composite PMI - 55.8.
                            Nevertheless, the growth of the EUR / USD pair was insignificant, as the dollar today stabilized in the foreign exchange market on the eve of the publication of tomorrow results of the Fed meeting. The index of the dollar WSJ, which reflects the value of the US dollar against the basket of 16 other currencies, slightly increased and amounted to 86.58.
                            At 18:00 (GMT) on Wednesday will publish the decision of the Fed on the interest rate in the US. It is widely expected that the rate will remain at the same level of 1.25%.
                            According to the latest data of the CME Group, the probability of an increase in the rate at the December meeting of the Federal Reserve is 48%.
                            From the US, we continue to receive weak macro data, against which the Fed will be very carefully approaching the issue of further tightening of monetary policy. It is likely that the dollar will remain under pressure until the domestic political situation in the United States normalizes and macroeconomic indicators start to arrive with strong indicators.
                            We are waiting for data from the USA today. CB Consumer Confidence is published at 14:00 (GMT). This indicator reflects the confidence of American consumers in the economic development of the country. A high level indicates an increase in the economy, while a low indicates stagnation. The previous value of the indicator is 118.9. The growth of the indicator will strengthen USD, and a decrease in value will weaken the dollar. It is expected that this indicator will come out with a value of 116.5, which will negatively affect the dollar when the forecast is confirmed.

                            Support and resistance levels
                            The pair EUR / USD continues to trade in the uplink on the daily chart, the upper limit of which runs near the level of 1.1720. The EUR / USD is trying to gain a foothold above the key support level 1.1610 (EMA200 on the weekly chart).
                            The positive dynamics of the EUR / USD pair remains. The growth of the EUR / USD pair may continue. In this case, the immediate target will be the resistance level 1.1785 (the Fibonacci retracement level of 38.2% of the corrective growth from the lows reached in February 2015 in the last wave of global decline from 1.3900).
                            An alternative scenario for the decline will be related to the breakdown of the support level 1.1610. In case of breakdown of the support level 1.1560 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart), the pair EUR / USD may fall to support level 1.1285 (Fibonacci level of 23.6%), and in case of its breakdown, risks of return to the downtrend will grow.
                            However, in any case, while the EUR / USD pair is above the level of 1.1030 (EMA200 on the daily chart), a bullish trend remains.
                            Support levels: 1.1610, 1.1560, 1.1500, 1.1400, 1.1370, 1.1285, 1.1240, 1.1120, 1.1030

                              DJIA: US indices rose
                              26/07/2017

                              Current dynamics

                              The main US stock indices remain upward, gaining support from positive companies and soft rhetoric of the Fed representatives regarding plans for further tightening of monetary policy in the US.
                              By the end of trading on Tuesday, the DJIA index increased by 0.5%, to 21614 points, Nasdaq Composite grew by about 0.1%, S & P500 gained 0.3%. Earlier, the indices were supported by the growth of shares of American banks, which in the last month gained about 6% in the hope that a gradual increase in interest rates will lead to an increase in their loan proceeds.
                              The growth of the indices was also helped yesterday by the rising oil prices after Saudi Arabia, which is the world's largest oil exporter, said it would cut supplies in August.
                              The cautious rhetoric of Fed Chairman Janet Yellen and a restrained assessment of the likelihood of another rate hike this year by a number of representatives of the Fed have contributed to weakening investors' expectations of further tightening of monetary policy in the US. Given the Fed's concerns about low inflation, rates are also unlikely to be raised at the two next Fed meetings in September and October. Preserving the soft monetary policy of the Fed is beneficially reflected in the US stock market. On the other hand, the negative political situation in the US and the problems in implementing the electoral program to stimulate the US economy by the administration of the US president put pressure on the stock indices.
                              Today, investors will be focused on the publication (at 18:00 GMT) of the Fed's decision on the interest rate. According to the CME Group, the probability of a rate hike at the July meeting is only 3%, in December - 54%. Investors will carefully study the statement of the Fed and look for signals about further plans to raise interest rates and reduce the balance of the Fed.

                              In July, the DJIA index reached a new absolute maximum near the mark of 21680.0. At the same time, the DJIA index keeps positive dynamics and continues to grow in the ascending channels on the daily and weekly charts.
                              The positive dynamics of the DJIA is maintained as long as the index trades above the key support level 20400.0 (EMA200 on the daily chart, as well as the Fibonacci level of 23.6% correction to the wave growth from the level of 15660.0 after rebounding in February this year to the collapse of the markets since the beginning of the year. Of this wave and the Fibonacci level of 0% is near the mark of 21536.0). The long positions in the DJIA index trade are still relevant.
                              Only in case of breakdown of the support level 21431.0 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart) can we again return to consideration of short positions on the DJIA index with the aim near the levels 20400.0, 20300.0 (Fibonacci level 23.6%). And only in case of breakdown of the support level of 19380.0 (Fibonacci level of 38.2%) can we speak about the breakdown of the bullish trend.

                                USD / CHF: the franc is down throughout the market
                                27/07/2017

                                Current dynamics

                                As you know, the Fed did not change its monetary policy at its July meeting and kept the key rate in the range of 1% -1.25%. The decision to keep the current monetary policy unchanged was unanimously adopted and was published yesterday at 18:00 (GMT).
                                The index of the dollar WSJ, reflecting the value of the dollar against the basket of 16 currencies, declined immediately after the publication of the Fed decision by 0.3%, to 86.42. The decision of the Fed was expected, however, the US dollar showed a large-scale decline in the foreign exchange market.
                                With the opening of today's trading day, the dollar continued to decline in the foreign exchange market.
                                However, it is worth paying attention to the fact that together with the dollar since the beginning of the European session, the Swiss franc also began to decline.
                                It was a safe haven, although it significantly lost this quality due to the NBS's actions in the foreign exchange market, the franc, along with gold and the yen, was actively bought recently due to the continuing political uncertainty in the US.
                                The Swiss National Bank has set a negative deposit rate, hoping that this will reduce the attractiveness of Swiss assets for international investors. Frack is usually strengthened during times of economic and political instability, thanks to Switzerland's strong economy, low levels of its debt and the stability of its political system. For the export-oriented Swiss economy, the exchange rate is especially important. A large share of its exports falls on the Eurozone, China, the United States and the rising franc leads to a rise in the price of Swiss goods.
                                After this week's meeting of the Fed, the dollar significantly weakened in the foreign exchange market, while purchases of assets-shelters, including francs, increased significantly.
                                The Swiss National Bank has traditionally stated that the Swiss franc is overbought, consistently advocating a soft monetary policy in the country.
                                As a result of the efforts of the Swiss National Bank aimed at curbing the growth of its currency, its foreign exchange reserves grew to about 700 billion francs (735 billion US dollars). However, investor purchases continue.
                                At the beginning of today's European session, there is a sharp decline in the franc, and to all major currencies, including against the yen, the dollar.
                                It is possible that the NBS conducts another currency intervention, which it never announces either before or after.
                                From the news for today we are waiting for the data from the USA. At 12:30 (GMT) a block of important macro data will be published: the weekly report of the US Department of Labor, containing data on the number of initial applications for unemployment benefits, orders for durable goods excluding transport in the US in June. The result above the expected indicates a weak labor market, which has a negative impact on the US dollar. The forecast is expected to increase to 240,000 versus 233,000 for the previous period, which should negatively affect the dollar.

                                Support and resistance levels
                                After reaching new annual lows near the 0.9445 mark at the end of last week, the pair USD / CHF rose during the last 4 trading sessions. Today, the pair USD / CHF is also actively growing since the beginning of the European trading session.
                                At the beginning of the European session, the pair USD / CHF is trying to gain a foothold above the short-term resistance level 0.9540 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart). Indicators OsMA and Stochastics on the 1-hour, 4-hour, daily charts turned to long positions.
                                However, in order to break the bearish trend, the USD / CHF pair needs, first of all, to gain a foothold above the levels of 0.9620 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart), 0.9650 (Fibonacci level of 23.6% of the upward correction to the last global decline wave from December 2016 and from the level 1.0300).
                                If the price falls below the 0.9540 level, the USD / CHF decline may resume within the descending channel on the daily chart. The lower boundary of this channel passes near the support level 0.9400. This level will become the goal in case of resumption of the pair USD / CHF decline.
                                The strong negative dynamics prevails. The main dynamics of the pair USD / CHF will still be connected with the dynamics of the dollar in the foreign exchange market. In the meantime, the dollar is weak.
                                Support levels: 0.9540, 0.9500, 0.9440, 0.9400
