EUR/USD to resume downside eventually Mir feels that EUR/USD looks rangebound, and that if it was going to push lower, it would have done so already at the start of the week. Nevertheless, in the long run, he can see more downward pressure and expects bearish flow to return ion the near term.

Bullish on EUR/USD

More upside potential might be seen ahead in EUR/USD. Volatility is going to be two-sided before the FOMC. The markets remain too hawkish on the FOMC and any disappointment might see the cross pushing above 1.10 resistance for a move towards 1.12.

Wilson Leung, Director of Trendsetter FX, joined Tip Tv to give the outlook for USD/JPY and EUR/USD.

USD/JPY: Re-test of 124.50 expected The recent China stock market rout supported the Yen temporarily as recovery in equities saw USD/JPY rebound higher. The key risk ahead for the cross remains the FOMC meeting and the US rate hike expectations, according to Leung. He further suggests buying any USD/JPY dips below 123, and maintains an upside target at 124.50.

EUR/USD: Keep an eye for a range breakout Leung notes the key upside and downside levels for EUR/USD, and sees a break below 1.1019 to remove any long positions on the pair.

Steven Woodcock, Senior FX Analyst for Plutus FX, joined Tip TV to elaborate on the currency outlook during the thin holiday months. Bearish on GBP/USD The GBPUSD has remained a range trade this week, according to Woodcock, who believes that the range will continue into next week, with possible downside for the sterling in the future. He noted that EURGBP had been a prime driver, and that we might see a relief rally, with a possible move to the 71/71.50 area, which would pressure the GBPUSD. GBP/CHF: Downside expected Woodcock commented that the GBPCHF will come down in the future, as the EURCHF begins to just turn over, but there is not much in the charts at the moment concerning the CHF. USD/CAD: Outlook depends on Canada GDP, but susceptible to the downside The USDCAD is onward and upward according to Woodcock, with the CAD being aided by the bank of Canada. He believes it has hit a tough point at 130.50, but with good Canadian numbers today there is a chance the USDCAD could break through. Alternatively, poor numbers or oil could cause a pull back. EUR/USD: Look at the crosses Woodcock finishes by adding the EURUSD has traded heavy recently, but argues that it does need a clear out. He believes a danger move could be to the upside, and decides that a cause for a spike in the EURUSD could be the EURGBP. Woodcock advises to watch the weaker side of the crosses to ascertain outlook for the euro dollar.

    • Brexit Aftermath: The Market Reaction Of Bitcoin, Gold And Pound Sterling To Headline News In The EURO Zone   After the UK made it public to exit from the EURO bloc, the market cap for Bitcoin and Gold has increased almost by $133 billion and $1 trillion. Is this the Brexit aftermath?   As it is, the end may be near for Brexit. In the recent declaration an accord is reached between the British government and the EU, everyone is on the lookout for the final date Brexit will conclude. And based on this scenario, an analysis is drawn on the aftermath of this separation in the politics of the EURO bloc and the effect on the price of Bitcoin, Gold and pound sterling.   Bitcoin: Since the start of Brexit, Bitcoin’s market cap had spiked higher and recovered about $10 billion worth. Before Brexit, the cryptocurrency of the first choice had been stable in price after crashing to a market cap of about $2.9 billion low around January 2015. However, after the crash, the cryptocurrency had spiked to about 300% within 18 months while the next super halving of the project is expected on the network from 25 to 12.5 fresh Bitcoin’s per 10 minutes.   As of mid-2016, the most liquid GBP market was the London based Coinfloor exchange. The exchange did around 772 Bitcoins’ worth of volume that day, valued back then at around $4.9 million, with data from the technical back end at the Trading view.   The Pound Sterling: The British national currency had crashed by almost 20% on the night of the vote after hitting a momentary high of about $1.5 versus the USD for about 8 months. Since crashing to a low of about $1.2 as at March 2017, the Pound sterling had rallied 6% within a 4-week time frame, after the UK parliament decided to vote and activate the Article 50 while then the Brexit journey began for the UK taking it two years to discuss its planned exit from the EURO bloc.     Gold: The safe-haven asset also spiked higher around the same time frame from mid-March to mid-April 2017 with its price rising about 7% versus the USD. Nevertheless, this scenario didn’t play out on Bitcoin as in March 2017, beginning with its price at $1000, Bitcoin had surged to hit an all-time value of about $1300, as a result of markets expectation for a Bitcoin ETF being endorsed. However, after its nullification was declared on 10th March 2017, the cryptocurrency fell to a low of about $888 which occurred concurrently with the UK’s law passage for its exit from EURO bloc. Ever since then as the UK’s Brexit discussions with the EU raged on, so did the Pound against the US-dollar and Bitcoin gained more to its price.   Bitcoin, Gold, and Pound Sterling Reactions to Brexit During this timeframe transversing Brexit discussion and its process, the Pound lost the majority of its 15% gains recovered, to tumble from a high of $1.43 to hit $1.20 on 3 September. In a similar multi-day timeframe, gold broke out of its basic $1400 resistance level to rally 15% versus the US-dollar. While Bitcoin gained higher, then again, stayed on the level around $8,000—yet the genuine story of those 17 months incorporates the cryptocurrency crashing towards $3,000 (December 2018) preceding the move spiking to a high of almost $14,000 in June this year.   Source: https://learn2.trade     
    • Despite Running To The Highest Close In Six Months, GBPUSD May Fail To Reverse   GBPUSD Price Analysis – October 20 The GBPUSD had closed on Friday above its opening price after recovering from early selling pressure and trending higher for the 4th day consecutively in a row. After failing to reverse from its highs, the FX pair is unstable and due to weekend UK parliament vote on Brexit, with this scenario, the pair is likely to gap while it reopens on Monday morning in Asia (Sunday evening in the US).   Key Levels Resistance Levels: 1.3301, 1.3185, 1.2988   Support Levels: 1.2582, 1.2204, 1.1958   GBPUSD Long term Trend: Bullish On the daily picture, the bulls took charge in the previous session and exited the day above its opening price, however, the pair failed to move past the prior’s day’s trading range and the price likewise failed to reverse below the previous day’s range.   The GBPUSD had rallied upwards to as high as the level at 1.2988 last week, before forming a temporary top there. In the case of a reverse, the fall may be contained by the level at 1.2582 resistance turned support to bring rise resumption.     GBPUSD Short term Trend: Bullish An impermanent top is structured on the level at 1.2988 and intraday bias in GBPUSD stays on the upside. A few consolidations may be seen. Be that as it may, any pullback ought to be contained above the level at 1.2582 support to bring rise resumption.   Meanwhile, on the upside, a break of the level at 1.2988 will stretch out the recovery from the level at 1.1958 to 1.2582 from 1.2204 at 1.3185 next. Without bias analysis, the outlook is bullish and displaying an intact uptrend in the short and long-term.   Source: https://learn2.trade

As expected readings would result in a y/y loss of 0.3% for headline PPI, versus a 0.3% pace for August. Tuesday – 22 October 2019   Retail Sales (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canadian sales are expected to have increased by 0.6% m/m in August compared to 0.4% m/m in July, with the ex-autos component down -0.3%. Existing Home Sales (USD, GMT 14:00) – Home sales have regained their status as an important indicator after the financial crisis and can have a strong effect on the markets. The release is expected to record a slight -0.2% pull-back in September to a 5.480 mln pace, after a bounce to 5.490 mln in August. In Q2, we saw an average sales pace of 5.287 mln, and we expect a better 5.463 mln pace in Q3. Thursday – 24 October 2019   Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 08:30-09:00) – September PMIs showed a marked contraction in manufacturing activity and a sharp slowdown in services sector growth.

Meanwhile, Services PMI is expected to fall to 51.2.

Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to fall -1.8% in September, after gains of 0.2% in August, thanks to an expected transportation orders drop.

Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing are expected to slip in October, to 50.1 from 51.1, while Services PMIs are likely to rise to 51.3 from 50.9, indicating a slowdown in the sector that has been hit by global trade tensions. Friday – 25 October 2019   German IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – In September, the German IFO business confidence came in slightly higher than expected at 94.6. In October, however, the overall business climate reading is seen slightly lower at 94.4. The more forward looking expectations reading is anticipated at 91.8 from 90.8.

    • Perfect Trend Lines, PTL, is a short-term trend trading indicator. The lines showing the trend in this indicator is not straight lines like normal trend lines. PTL indicator calculation is simple. First take the 7 bar high and low, then the 3 bar high and low. If the close price is above the 7 bar high and 3 bar high, then an uptrend is identified. When the close price is below the 7 bar low and 3 bar low then a downtrend is identified. These bars are considered as strong trend bars. The magenta line is the 7 bar high or low depending on the trend. The cyan line is the 3 bar high or low depending on trend direction. When price is trading between these 2 lines trend strength is weak.   A magenta diamond shape appears when sell signal is generated. Cyan diamond shape appears for a buy signal. The magenta line can be used as stop loss. The cyan line provides a tighter stop loss level. Strong downtrend bars are marked by a magenta dot at the bar high and strong uptrend bars are marked by a cyan dot at the bottom of the bar.   PTL.zip
    • Qualitative Quantitative Estimation (QQE) is based on a combination of smoothed Moving Average of RSI along with the average true range ATR. Volatile assets such as forex, futures, stocks etc. can be monitored using the Qualitative Quantitative Estimation (QQE) indicator. The indicator displays two lines; a fast and a slow-moving trailing stop line.  The level 50 is important in QQE indicator. When the fast line (green line) is above 50, trend is considered bullish, if it is below 50, downtrend is assumed.   The original QQE indicator trading strategy is to buy when the green line is above 50 and it cross above dotted red line. For a sell trade the green line is below 50 and green line cross below dotted red line. Some traders open Buy position when the green line is below 50 and it cross above red line. Another method is divergence between price and QQE indicator. When price makes new lows and QQE indicator’s green line fails to make new lows, buy position can be opened. When price makes New highs and QQE green line fails to make new highs, sell position can be opened. QQE.zip
