Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (February 12 - 16, 2018)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
This pair is bearish in the short-term, for price went southwards throughout last week, moving downwards from the resistance line at 1.2450, and nearly touching the support line at 1.2200. The support line would be breached to the downside, as other support lines at 1.2150 and 1.2100 are aimed at. The outlook on EUR pairs is bearish for this week, and so, the probability of a southwards movement is very high.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bearish
The outlook on the market is bearish – even in the long term. Throughout last week, there were rally attempts in the context of a downtrend. The current bullish effort may be temporary, because price may drop from here, to test the support levels at 0.9350 and 0.9300 (this week). However, a movement above the supply level at 0.9500 could result in a nice bullish outlook on the market.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
This market shed 300 pips last week, closing below the distribution territory at 1.3800. Price has gone downwards by over 430 pips since February 2, creating a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market. The outlook on GBP pairs is bearish for this week (save EURGBP, which is expected to be going upwards), and thus the accumulation territories at 1.3750, 1.3700 and 1.3650 could be reached this week.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
USDJPY is bearish – though the market environment is quite choppy. After several tests, price was able to go below the supply level at 108.50, and it is currently targeting the demand level at 108.00, which could be breached to the downside, as price goes further southwards. The bearish outlook would be intact as long as price does not go above the supply levels 110.00 and 110.50, which could, however, be tested.

EURJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
Last week, there was a massive drop on this cross. Price went southwards by 500 pips, reaching the demand zone at 132.00. On Friday, there was an upwards bounce in the market, which should turn out to be temporary, because this cross ought to continue its southwards journey this week. The demand zones at 132.00, 131.50 and 131.00 could be breached to the downside. Rallies in the market could this be ignored.

GBPJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
Amid high volatility, the bias on GBPJPY has turned bearish. The bearishness started as a minor bearish correction on February 2, and later became something serious last week. Price plummeted by 600 pips, testing the demand zone at 149.00. The upwards bounce in price, which occurred on Friday, February 10, should be disregarded, because price is most likely go further southwards (owing to the weakness in GBP and a bearish expectation for JPY pairs). The market can shed another 300 pips this week.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:


“It simply doesn't make sense to trade just one market and to hope that one is going to be the big winner of the year. That's why trading multiple markets is so important and one of the key principles to successful trading in the long-term.” - Marco Mayer
