Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs

Recommended Posts

Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (May 28 – June 1, 2018)       

 

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

There is a very strong Bearish Confirmation Pattern on EURUSD. Price went southwards by 100 pips last week (it has gone south by almost 750 pips since April 19). The line at 1.1650 has been tested and breached to the downside, slightly. This week, further bearish movement is a possibility, and the support lines at 1.1600 and 1.1550 can be reached as well. However, there is also a possibility of a bullish reversal before the end of the week.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bullish

This trading instrument is bullish in the long-term, and bearish in the short-term. Last week, price turned southwards, testing the level at 0.9900 several times and eventually closing below it on Friday. One reason why the market became bearish in the short-term is the strength in CHF. CHF still strong, as evident on major CHF pairs. The market can thus reach the support levels at 0.9850 and 0.9800, thereby erasing the long-term bullish outlook on the market.

 

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

This pair went southwards last week, closing below distribution territory at 1.3300 on Friday. Price shed almost 170 pips last week, and it has shed 1,050 pips since April 17 (an ideal market condition for trend followers).  The GBP remains very week, and it is not advisable to seek long trades here, except to go short on rallies. The market is expected to lose at least, additional 150 pips this week, reaching the accumulation territory at 1.3150.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

The trend is also bearish in the short-term, but bullish in the long-term. From the high of last week, price went downwards by 230 pips, to test the demand level at 109.00, closing above it on May 25. Further bearish movement is expected this week, and this may affect the long-term bullish bias, as the demand levels at 109.00, 108.50 and 108.00 are aimed, for there is a considerable stamina in Yen.

 

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish   

The downwards movement that happened last week has put an end to the recent sideways movement that was seen in the market. From May 9 to 22, the market consolidated in the context of a downtrend, and at last, there was a breakout in favor of sellers. This has really put more emphasis on the Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, coupled with the weakness in EUR. This week, the demand zones at 127.00, 126.50 and 126.00 may be reached.

 

 

GBPJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

The bias on GBPJPY is bearish and it should continue to be bearish. GBP is weak and JPY is strong. Besides, there was a huge drop of over 450 pips last week, slashing more and more demand zones as bears rejoiced.   Since April 17, more than 800 pips have been shed, and this just seems to be the beginning, as stronger bearishness is anticipated. At least, another 200 pips would be shed this week.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“…Trading appeals to so many of us. It generates a sense of freedom – a notion that we can do it from anywhere at anytime. The engagement with the market is at our own timing and on our own terms. We can in essence wander in and out whenever we want. Our movement is not at the behest of someone else and it not set according to their timetable. The nomad in us is fulfilled as a trader.” – Chris Tate

Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (June 4 - 8, 2018)       

 

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

The pair trended downwards in the first few days of last week, and then started a bullish correction on May 30. Price went upwards by 200 pips in the context of a downtrend, but the movement was not significant enough to override the extant bearishness in the market (except the resistance line at 1.1800 is exceeded). The outlook for EUR pair is strongly bearish for this week and for this month, and so bulls should be careful.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

USDCHF has been moving downwards in the past few weeks; which was an unusual thing, considering the fact that it usually goes in a negative correlation with EURUSD. However, the situation will change this week, as USD is expected to begin gathering stamina at some point (before the end of the week). This would aid a strong bullish reversal in USDCHF and put more bearish pressure on EURUSD.

 

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

Cable has been trending southwards for almost two months: Therefore the shallow rally that was seen on Friday is a totally insignificant thing. Price has dropped about 1,100 pips since April 17, and that is just the beginning. The outlook on GBP pairs is mostly bearish for June, and as a result, directional long trades may not make much sense this month. GBPUSD tends to go into positive correlation with EURUSD, and the accumulation territories at 1.3300, 1.3250 and 1.3200 would be reached before the end of the week.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

This trading instrument is bullish in the long –term, but bearish in the short-term. Since March 26, a long-term bullish journey started, but short-term bearish effort was also started on May 21. The short-term bearishness is still in place and it is supposed to override the long-term bullish bias on the market. This is because there is a very strong bearish outlook on JPY pairs this month, and so, USDJPY would eventually become like other JPY pairs, which are already bearish.

 

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish   

There is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in this market, as a result of a vivid weakness that began in the market in April 16. Price has shed roughly 700 pips since then. Last week, the bearish journey continued as price rammed into the demand zone at 125.00, and then bounced upwards (300 pips), without being able to form a confirmed bullish bias. This week, a bearish reversal is expected, because of the weakness in EUR and owing to the bearish outlook on JPY pairs.

 

 

GBPJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

In the first half of last week, this cross dropped and then started rising in the second half of the week. However, the major bias remains bearish and the rally that was seen was an opportunity to sell short dearly. Since GBP is weak and JPY is expected to gain further stamina, a bearish movement of at least 500 pips is expected in the month of June, and that may start before the end of this week. 

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“You have to study the markets and learn how to take out profits from the market action… You can build up your trading skills through practice and experience and feel good knowing that you have mastered a skill that few have developed.” – Joe Ross

Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (June 11 - 15, 2018)       

 

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

This pair is bearish in the long-term, and bullish in a very short-term. Since May 30, price has been making a measure of bullish attempt (save the correction that was witnessed on Friday). A movement above the resistance lines at 1.1850, 1.1900 and 1.1950 will bring about a long-term bullish outlook on the market. On the other hand, a movement below the support lines at 1.1650, 1.1600 and 1.1550, will cancel the short-term bullishness in the market, while strengthening the major bearish outlook.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

The market has been caught in a slow and gradual bearish movement since May 10 (over 230 pips). It is possible that the market would continue going further downwards (albeit slowly), especially when EURUSD gains a lot of stamina. The support levels at 0.9800 (which has previously been tested), 0.9750 and 0.9700, would be reached soon, and that might bring about a strong Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market.

 

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

Although there is currently a bearish trend in the market, price made faint effort to go upwards last week. It is much more likely that the faint bullish effort will eventually translate into a significant rally this week, because the outlook on GBP pairs is bullish. The distribution territories at 1.3450, 1.3500 and 1.3550 would be reached. This will eventually invalidate the bearish bias on the market, as everything turns bullish.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

This trading instrument is bullish in the long-term, but neutral in the short-term. In the last two weeks, price has generally oscillated between the demand level at 108.50 and the supply level at 110.50. As long as price continues to oscillate between those demand and supply levels, the short-term bias would be neutral. A break above the supply level at 110.50 will result in confirmation of the existing long-term bullish outlook while a break below the demand level at 108.50 will result in a clean bearish outlook.

 

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish    

The bias on the EURJPY has just turned bullish.  Since May 30, price has rallied by 500 pips, reaching the supply zone at 130.00, before the current bearish correction (which happened on June 8). A test of the demand zone at 127.50 will threaten the new bullish bias on the market; while a movement towards the supply zones at 129.50, 130.00 and 130.50 will strengthen it. There will be a measure of volatility in the market this week.

 

 

GBPJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish  

Although a bearish correction was experienced on Thursday and Friday, the bias on the market remains bullish.  A sideways movement throughout this week will bring about a neutral bias on the market. A drop of 150 – 200 pips will result in a bearish signal, while a movement towards the supply zones at 147.50, 148.00 and 148.50, will save the ongoing bullish outlook on the market. It is much more likely that bulls would be able to hold out this week.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“Once you know how to trade, no-one and nothing can sweep aside your skill. It’s something you can do no matter how old you are. As long as you have a dream in your heart that you yearn for, the sun never has to set on your identity as a ‘trader’.” – Louise Bedford

Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (June 18 - 22, 2018)       

 

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

The market began the current strong bearish movement in April. This month (especially from early June), price consolidated till June 14, before the large pullback we are currently witnessing. The large pullback has put more emphasis on the dominant bearish bias; thus price is expected to go further southwards this week, reaching the support lines at 1.1600 (an easy target), 1.1550 and 1.1500.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

This pair is bearish in the long-term, but bullish in the short-term. It is somewhat weird that both USDCHF and EURUSD have been bearish for some time, but the situation seems about to change. On June 14, there was a sudden bullish breakout, which was strong enough to bring about a short-term bullish signal. There is a possibility that price could keep on going northwards this week, reaching the resistance levels at 1.0000 (an important level), 1.0050 and 1.0100. However, an exceptionally strong buying pressure would be needed for the resistance level at 1.0100 to be reached.

 

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

In the first week of June, Cable consolidated in the context of a downtrend. The same thing happened last week…. before the bearish movement that occurred on Thursday, which points to bears’ supremacy. The weakness in the market is currently visible and since the outlook on GBP pairs is bearish for this month, further southwards movement is expected, which would enable price to reach the accumulation territories at 1.3250, 1.3200 and 1.3150.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

USDJPY managed to go upwards last week, and it was able to close above the demand level at 110.50 on Friday. There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, which points to the possibility of price going towards the supply levels at 111.00, 111.50 and 112.00. Nonetheless, the further northwards the market goes, the greater the potential of a strong pullback, which can happen before the end of the week.  

 

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish   

The pullback that occurred on April 14 points to the fact that bears are still a force to reckon with. The major bias on the market is bearish, and since EUR is currently weak, price is supposed to continue moving downwards. The outlook on JPY is bearish for this week – another factor that may contribute to continuous weakness in the market. The next targets are the demand zones at 128.00, 127.50 and 127.00.

 

GBPJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish  

This trading instrument simply moved in a range last week. Price ranged between the supply zone at 148.00 and the demand zone at 146.00. This week, either the supply zone or the demand zone would be breached forcefully as price assumes a strong, directional movement. The most likely direction is bearish (which may invalidate the extant bullish bias), and that may enable price to reach the demand zones at 146.50, 146.00 and 145.50.

Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (June 25 - 29, 2018)       

 

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

The market swung upwards and downwards last week, without a directional movement. Nevertheless, the major bias remains bearish, and the outlook on EUR pairs is mostly bearish for this week. It is possible that price will test the support lines at 1.1600, 1.1550 (which were previously tested last week). Price may also reach the support line at 1.1500, and possibly breach it to the downside. But that will require a heavy selling pressure.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

Price went sideways from Monday to Wednesday, and fell on Thursday and Friday, corroborating the outgoing bearish outlook on the market. Both USDCHF and EURUSD are currently bearish: But protracted bearish pressure on the latter may help a bullish signal to be generated on the former. There are support levels at 0.9850 and 0.9800. There are also resistance levels at 0.9900 and 0.9950.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

In the context of a downtrend, price went further southwards, shedding 160 pips and almost testing the accumulation territory at 1.3100. There was an upwards bounce on Thursday, but that would be an opportunity to sell short at higher prices (unless the distribution territory at 1.3400 is breached to the upside). GBP pairs (as well as other major pairs) will experience high volatility this week, and also in the first week of July.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Neutral

The long-term bias is bullish, but the short-term bias is bearish. Throughout last week, price meandered between the demand level at 109.50 and the supply level at 111.00. Should price continue to move within the confines of the aforementioned demand and supply levels, the short-term bias would remain neutral. Once the confines are breached, a directional movement will resume, and it could most likely favor bulls.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish   

Just like its USDJPY counterpart, this cross mostly ranged last week (though the recent bias on the market is bearish). For the ranging movement to end, it is either price will breach the demand zone at 127.00 to the downside (going further downwards), or price would need to breach the supply zone at 129.00 to the upside (going further upwards). One of these conditions must be met for the bearish bias to be supported or invalidated; otherwise the trend would become neutral.

 

GBPJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish  

This cross underwent a heavy selling pressure on July 18 and 19, but bulls pushed price upwards on July 20 and 21. There remains a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, and it would be invalidated only when price moves upwards by 500 pips from here. On the other hand, price could continue falling towards the demand zones at 145.00, 144.50 and 144.00. Price could even go further downwards than that.

 

 This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“Trading is a process-oriented endeavor for those who are serious about becoming and remaining a consistently successful trader.” – Dr. Woody Johnson

Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (July 2 – 6, 2018)       

 

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

The market is bearish, but price was not able to go downwards seriously last week. Thus the market is bearish in the long-term, but neutral in the short-term. A strong opposition was particularly met at the support line at 1.1550, after which price bounced off the support line. However, that would turn out to be an opportunity to go short at a better price, for the outlook on EUR pairs is bearish for this week. One major task for bears is to break the support line at 1.1550 to the downside, as price goes further downwards.

 

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Neutral  

The bias on this pair has become neutral, especially in the face of the fact that USDCHF was characterized by trendlessness throughout June. Last week, price went upwards, to move above the resistance level at 0.9950, and then moved below that resistance (now close to the support level at 0.9900). As long as EURUSD remains weak, there will not be a significant bearish movement on USDCHF pair this week (although the pair will eventually give way to bearish pressures before the end of July).

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

The market went smoothly downwards, testing the accumulation territory at 1.3050 (over 200 pips of bearish movement). After testing the accumulation territory at 1.3050, price rallied seriously and closed above the accumulation territory at 1.3200. The outlook on GBP pairs is bearish for this week, so a movement towards the accumulation territories at 1.3200, 1.3150 and 1.3100 are highly anticipated. There could even be a movement below the accumulation territory at 1.3100.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

A Bullish Confirmation Pattern is present on the USDJPY. In the short-term, price rallied from the demand level at 109.50, to close above the demand level at 110.50 on Friday. This week, there could be further upwards movement towards the supply levels at 111.00 and 111.50. However, price is not expected to go further upwards than that because the outlook on certain JPY pairs is bearish for the month of July.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish   

This cross is bearish in the long-term, and bullish in the short-term. In short-term, a movement above the demand zone at 129.00 has resulted in a ‘buy” signal, which could enable price to reach the supply zones at 129.50 and 130.000, However, any movement to the upside would be limited, partly because of the ongoing weakness in EUR, which means price could also be retraced lower before the end of this week.

 

GBPJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish  

Owing to the present Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the chart, the bias on this trading instrument is bearish, but the strong bullish surge that was witnessed on Friday has posed a threat to the bearish outlook. On Thursday and Friday, price gained 250 pips, after testing the demand zone at 144.00. Should price gain another 200 pips this week, things will turn completely bullish. On the other hand, a downward movement from here would save the bearish bias.

 

 

 This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (July 9 - 13, 2018)       

 

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

The market is bearish in the long-term, and bullish in the short-term. Last week, after testing the support line at 1.1600, price went upwards by 150 pips, to test the resistance line at 1.1750. Price can still go further upwards towards the resistance lines at 1.1800 and 1.1850. However, a strong buying pressure is needed to reach the resistance line at 1.1850. A southwards movement from here would render this expectation invalid.

 

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Neutral  

The market is virtually flat. Since the past two weeks, price has moved between the support level at 0.9850 and the resistance level at 1.0000. As long as price moves between the aforementioned support and resistance levels, things will remain neutral. This week, it is not likely that price would break the support level at 0.9850 to the downside; or break the resistance level at 1.0000 to the upside, because much volatility is not expected in the market this week. However, before the end of the month, a rise in momentum is expected, which would create a directional bias.

 

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

GBPUSD Is bearish in the long-term, and bullish in the short-term, just like EURUSD. Since testing the accumulation territory at 1.3100, price has gone upwards by roughly 200 pips, closing above the accumulation territory at 1.3250 and aiming the distribution territory at 1.3300. Nonetheless, the major outlook remains bearish, which means the market needs to gain, at least, another 300 pips, before the bias can turn bullish.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

Since March 26, the market has been going northwards slowly and gradually. Right now, the bullish bias is weak, although bears have not been able to push price lower significantly. There was an attempt to go south last week, after the supply level at 111.00 was tested. Price closed slightly below the supply level at 110.50, and it may go towards the demand level at 110.00, where bearish effort should be contained, just for the bullish bias to be saved.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Neutral  

This cross is bullish in the short-term, and neutral in the long-term. Some bullish effort started around the end of June, and it has been upheld till now. In the short-term, price could move upwards and downwards, within the supply zone at 131.00 and the demand zone at 128.00. Price may not be able to go beyond these boundaries because much volatility is not expected this month, unless some fundamental figure causes a radical change in the market.

 

GBPJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

Since June 28, this trading instrument has been going upwards, leading to a bullish bias in the short-term (a Bullish Confirmation Pattern). Last week ended on a bullish note and it is probable that price would continue going upwards, reaching the supply zones at 147.00, 147.50 and 148.00. There would be a reversal along the way, which would, nevertheless, not be serious enough to invalidate the ongoing bullish bias.

Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (July 16 - 20, 2018)       

 

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

In the long-term, the pair is bearish, and last week was bearish too. Price dropped by 140 pips, moved briefly below the support line at 1.1650, and then closed above it. This week, there could be a test of the support lines at 1.1650 and 1.1600, but they may not be broken to the downside because price has a high probability of going northwards, reaching the resistance lines at 1.1700, 1.1750 and 1.1800.

 

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bullish  

Last week, owing to a sudden surge of stamina in USD, the pair skyrocketed, reaching the high of 1.0066. The test of that high is significant because the last time price reached that level was May 2017. Since the high of the year (1.0066) was tested, price has shown a sharp reversal, shedding 60 pips and closing at 1.0002 on July 13. Price might attempt to go further upwards, but it would encounter stiff opposition around the high of 1.0066. Even there will be stiffer opposition above the high of the year, like the resistance levels at 1.0150, 1.0200 and 1.0250. Movement towards the south may be more visible this week.

 

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

In the long-term, Cable is bearish, and last week was bearish too. From the distribution territory at 1.3350, price dropped by 250 pips, and almost touched the accumulation territory at 1.3100, and then closed above the accumulation territory at 1.3200. This week, there could be a test of the accumulation territories at 1.3200 and 1.3150, but they may not be broken to the downside because price has a high probability of going northwards, reaching the distribution territories at 1.3250, 1.3300 and 1.3350.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

Last week was bullish. In fact, the market has been going upwards since March 26, and it has gained close to 800 pips. A clean bullish run has taken price towards the supply level at 112.50 and there is a lot of trading activity around that level, as bears are making attempt to effect a bearish reversal. There are demand levels at 112.00, 111.50 and 111.00. However, price could go upwards to reach the supply levels at 113.50, 114.00 and 115.00.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish  

This cross has become a bull market in the medium-term. Price gained 180 pips last week (it has gained over 650 pips since May 25), and managed to closed above the demand zone at 131.00. Short trades are not recommend in this market, owing to the Bullish Confirmation Pattern in it, and owing to the bullish outlook on EUR for this week and next. Price is thus expected to continue going upwards, reaching the supply zones at 131.50, 132.00 and 132.50.

 

GBPJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

GBPJPY is a volatile market, though with a Bullish Confirmation Pattern present in it. This month has been bullish so far (the bullish movement started late June and it has been upheld till now). Having gained 500 pips since June 28, there is still much room for bulls to shine. This week, another 200 pips can be gained amid high volatility. Nonetheless, this does not rule out possibility of bears overpowering bulls along the way.  

 

 

 This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“You should not draw the conclusion that winning traders are reckless. They aren't. They approach trading systematically. They develop clearly defined trading plans and they trade them. They wait for market conditions that increase their odds of success. But most of all, they have a positive attitude. They know that if they do their homework and make enough trades, they will take home a profit.” – Joe Ross

Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (July 23 - 27, 2018)       

 

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Neutral  

Price made a bullish attempt on Monday, but started coming down afterwards. The support line at 1.1600 was tested and price bounced off it, closing above another support line at 1.1700. The market is neutral, and that status will continue as long as price oscillates between the support line at 1.1550 and the resistance line at 1.1800. However, the neutrality in the market will soon end, and ensuing movement could most probably favor bulls. This means a break above the resistance line at 1.1800 is possible before the end of the week.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Neutral

This pair also went downwards at the beginning of last week, and then rallied around the middle of the week, only to come downward again at the end of the week. Price closed below the resistance level at 0.9950, threatening to go further downwards. The bias on the market is eventually neutral, and it would remain so until the support level at 0.9850 is breached to the downside. The most probable direction is southwards.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

GBPUSD is a weak trading instrument. Since April 14, price has been going downwards. Price moved briefly below the accumulation territory at 1.3000, and then rallied by 170 pips, almost reaching the distribution territory at 1.3150. The bias remains essentially bearish (but perpetual bullish effort could threaten the bearish bias). There are additional distribution territories 1.3200, 1.3250 and 1.3300.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

After testing the supply level at 113.00 several times, a bearish correction was started, which made the price close below the supply level at 111.50 on July 20 (a drop of 150 pips). The bias is bullish in the long-term, but going bearish in the short-term. Things will go completely bearish when price moves further downwards by another 200 pips, reaching the demand levels at 111.00, 110.50 and 110.00, and going further downwards.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish  

The market had been going upwards since June 28 until recently. The recent bias is bullish but there is a high possibility of price going bearish. Price has made a bearish U-turn, after almost reaching the supply zone at 132.00. It is expected that price will continue to go downwards this week, thereby rendering the recent bullish bias invalid and reaching the demand zones at 130.00, 129.50 and 129.00. Those demand zones may even be exceeded before the end of July.

 

GBPJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

There is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, as a result of a drop of 300 pips last week. The drop has already generated a bearish signal in the market, brought about by the perceived weakness in GBP, and the strength in JPY. This week (even till the end of July), the outlook on JPY pairs is bearish, and that means GBPJPY also will experience further bearish movement, which would enable it to reach the demand zones at 145.50, 140.00 and 135.50.   

 

 

 This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“A surprising insight for me in Jack Schwager’s Market Wizards was that most of the top traders he interviewed are 1-trick ponies: they do one thing — and they do it very well. Their success was built upon their ability to discover what others overlooked. I concluded that ‘doing one thing well’ would immediately simplify my trading life and could eventually evolve one thing into an important trading edge.” – VTI

Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (August 6 - 10, 2018)       

 

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

As the beginning of last week, the pair saw a considerable increase throughout its first and second days of trading. Price later dropped below the resistance line at 1.1600, closing below it (and that signified a drop of more than 170 pips from last week’s high). This month, the outlook on EUR pairs is bullish, which means EUR would rise against most major currencies, thereby reversing the current bearish bias on the market. However, EUR may not be able to rally versus JPY.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Neutral

The market has been moving sideways since June – hence the current neutral outlook. Price has been moving between the resistance level at 1.0050 and the support level at 0.9850, at least on a long-term basis. For the neutral bias to end, price would need to move out of these boundaries, and that is expected to create a directional bias. However, it may take several trading days (even a few weeks), for a strong, directional movement to occur. This is because volatility in the markets would be generally low this month, save in certain cases.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

The bias on GBPUSD is bearish and it would continue to be bearish, at least for this week. Price ranged from Monday to Wednesday, and then dropped further southwards on Thursday and Friday. The drop may continue this week, as price targets the accumulation territories at 1.2950 and 1.2900 (which may even be exceeded). A considerable amount of volatility will be witnessed on GBP pairs, while volatility will be low on most other pairs.

 

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

The situation on this trading instrument is tricky. It is bullish in the long-term, but neutral in the short-term. The bullish bias will soon change to a bearish bias (while the short-term neutrality will evaporate), because the outlook on JPY pairs is strong bearish for this week, and for the whole month of August. In fact, price is expected to shed a minimum of 300 pips this month, reaching the demand levels of 110.00, 100.00 and 109.00.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

The market initially went upwards, reaching the supply zone at 131.00. Nonetheless, further upwards movement is rejected at that supply zone as price slid downwards by roughly 240 pips, closing near the demand zone at 128.50 on Friday. Since there is Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, further downwards movement is anticipated this week, which would enable price to reach the demand zones at 128.50, 128.00 and 127.50.  

 

GBPJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

There is a “sell” signal in the market. Price first went upwards by 150 pips last week, reaching the supply zone at 147.00. It even moved slightly above that supply zone before dropping by 240 pips; hence the “sell” signal. Given the weakness of GBP, and the bearish outlook on JPY pairs, the most probable movement this week, is downwards. The demand zones at 144.50, 144.00 and 143.50 would easily be reached.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“Trading in itself is a thrilling activity, and many non-traders never have a chance to experience that level of excitement.” – Andy Jordan

Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (August 20 - 24, 2018)       

 

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

The market is bearish, and price went further downwards until it reached the support line at 1.1350. Further drop was rejected around the support level and a rally effort ensued. However, the rally effort was not serious enough to threaten the recent bearish outlook on the market. There is a need for price to go further upwards by another 200 pips before the bearish outlook can be rendered ineffectual.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Neutral

The most probable direction for this pair is southwards, once a breakout occurs in the market. Right now, the situation remains unchanged. It is interesting that the bias on USDCHF remains neutral, just as it was last week. The neutrality in the market has been existing since June 2018. Normally, USDCHF should go upwards as EURUSD goes south, but the former has chosen to remain neutral as the latter goes south, hence showing the bulls’ apathy. Should EURUSD skyrocket (something that will eventually happen) there would be a smooth bearish movement on USDCHF.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

Cable went slight downwards from Monday to Wednesday (in conjunction with the downtrend), and then consolidated for the rest of last week (also in the context of a downtrend). The market has shed over 400 pips this month, and there seems it has much more room to go southwards. Nonetheless, the more the market goes bearish, the higher the chances of a strong bullish reversal when it does occur.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

In the medium-term, a bearish signal has been generated on this pair. Although the situation in the market is quite choppy, a closer look reveals that bears have upper hands right now, and thus, the market may be able to test the demand levels at 110.00, 109.50 and 109.00. But that achievement will require a very strong bearish movement in the market. Bulls are also waiting for an opportunity to effect a reversal, pronged by a favorable fundamental factor. 

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

The price moved sideways last week – in the context of a downtrend. Further bearish movement this week will result in a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market (which has already shown its existence). The outlook on JPY pairs is currently bearish but there is also a probability of a strong bullish breakout, which may become a threat to the existing Bearish Confirmation Pattern. Whatever the case may be, a strong movement will happen this week.

 

GBPJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

This cross has dropped over 640 pips this month. It only consolidated last week, while the outlook on the market remains bearish. GBP is very weak and JPY is fairly strong; thus the bearish journey will likely continue this week when a breakout does occur. The targets for bears are the demand zones at 140.50, 140.00 and 139.50, which may be exceeded with enough bearish pressure.  

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (August 27 – 31, 2018)       

 

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

This pair gained a minimum of 200 pips last week, thus forming a bullish signal in the short-term. Further bullish movement is supposed to bring about a strong Bullish Confirmation Pattern, even in the long-term, as more gains are made in the market. Price would continue moving upwards this week, and bulls might target the resistance lines at 1.1650, 1.1700 and 1.1750 before the end of this week.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

This trading instrument has become bearish in the short-term (though the market remains neutral in the long-term). Last week, the market fell by over 130 pips, in reaction to the bullish effort evident on EURUSD. Should price continue dropping more and more southwards, the long-term outlook on the market itself will become bearish. Right now, the support levels at 0.9800, 0.9750 and 0.9700.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

Although Cable made a faint effort to rally last week, the outlook remains bearish in the long-term. On Friday, price closed on a neutral note, but a rise in momentum is expected any day (before the end of the month); and that is expected to be in favor of bulls. Nonetheless, there is a need for price to go upwards by at least, 400 pips before the long-term bias can turn bullish. Right now, price is consolidating.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

In the long-term and the short-term, a Bullish Confirmation Pattern is present in the market. Last week, price managed to gain 140 pips, from the weekly low of 110.00. The probability of price going northwards is higher than its probability to reverse and go seriously downwards. While there may be bearish threats along the way, USDJPY is supposed to generally go northwards this week, reaching the supply levels at 111.00, 111.50 and 112.000.   

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

This cross made a significant rally last week, rising from the demand zone at 126.50, and gaining about 340 pips, before closing around the price zone at 129.50 on Friday. Bulls are still intent on pushing the market upwards – that is the expectation for this week. At least, another 200 pips would be targeted this week, as price aims at the supply zones of 130.00, 130.50 and 140.00 might be reached this week.

 

GBPJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

This cross is bearish in the long-term, but bullish in the very short-term. Last Monday, price consolidated, rallied on Tuesday and Wednesday, and then consolidated for the rest of the week. The outlook on the market is bullish for this week, and in case the expected bullish movement is serious enough, the long-term bias on the market should become bullish. This week, the supply zones at 143.50, 144.00 and 144.50, could be targeted.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“Price action behavior in all timeframes reflects rational human behavior. Thus, whether a trade is executed on the 5 minute or the monthly chart, price action and the trading idea remains equally valid. Capital markets are fractal in nature. If you want to trade a system that preserves its’ edges over the long-run, then the low-risk idea should be based on humans’ psychological biases.” - Gabriel Grammatidis

Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (September 3 - 7, 2018)       

 

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

This pair started rising on August 15, and it gained more than 400 pips since then. However, there was a bearish retracement that took place last Thursday and Friday, which was not significant enough to override the recent bullish bias in the market (unless there is at least, 300 pip-drop from here). Price is supposed to recover and move higher this week, reaching the resistance lines at 1.1600, 1.1650 and 1.1700; which were all previously tested.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

This is a bear market. Since the last consolidation phase ended, price has come down by over 250 pips, closing on a bearish note on Friday. Since there is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, it is rational to expect further bearish pressure, which may push price towards the support levels at 0.9650, 0.9600 and 0.9550. The selling pressure needs to be significant for the support level at 0.9550 to be breached to the downside.  

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

Cable is bullish in the short-term, but bearish in the long-term. Further northward movement will endangered the long-term bearish bias, while further southwards movement will strengthen it. Price closed below the distribution territory at 1.2900 on Friday, and may go slightly lower before any rally effort is made. The possibility of price moving lower is stronger than its possibility of moving higher.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Neutral

The bias is now essentially neutral, and the situation in the market is currently dicey (as the market is choppy). Recently, price has swung between the supply level at 112.00 and the demand level at 109.50. As long as price is between these demand and supply levels, the neutrality in the market will persist. Once the demand level is breached to the downside (and price stays below it) or the supply level is breached to the upside (and price stays above it), the neutrality will end and a directional bias will start. Nevertheless, this requires a strong momentum to happen.    

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

Since August 15, price has gained roughly 600 pips, before the bearish movement that was witnessed on August 30 and 31. From last week’s high, price went downwards by 200 pips, and it could still go downwards by another 100 pips or more or less. The bullish bias will remain intact as long as price does not go below the demand zone at 126.00. Bulls will generally continue to endeavor to push the price upwards.

 

GBPJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

The cross is bullish in the very short-term (though the long-term bias is somewhat bearish). A strong movement towards the south will result in more emphasis on the recent bearishness in the market, while a strong movement to the upside will result in a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market. On the upside, the supply zones at 144.50, 145.00 and 145.50 could be reached, provided the market does not continue its current bearish correction.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (September 17 - 21, 2018)       

 

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Neutral

The bias on EUR/USD has essentially turned neutral, as price has not made any significant upwards or downwards movement in the last several trading days. There is a resistance line at 1.1750, and there is a support line at 1.1500. Either the resistance line must be breached to the upside, or the support lines must be breached to the downside before there could be a directional bias. That is what is expected before the end of this week or next.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

This is a bear market. In the medium-term, the market has been swinging up and down.  The price action is characterized by higher lows (which proffer opportunities to sell short at slightly higher prices), and lower lows, which follow the line of the least resistance. The most probable direction for the market this week is bearish. Price has remained bearish when EURUSD was weak, and therefore, it would be very difficult for USDCHF to trend upwards when EURUSD breaks out upwards.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish  

A clean bullish signal has already been generated in the market. Even in the higher time horizon, price has been going upwards in the past four weeks. On Friday, the market closed on a slightly bearish note – which would eventually turn out to be a temporary pullback in the market. The recent bullish journey is expected to resume, and the distribution territories at 1.3100, 1.3150 and 1.3200 may be reached within two weeks.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

A straightforward bullish signal has been generated and there is a high probability that the market would continue to make higher highs, owing to the Bullish Confirmation Pattern that was present in the market. Within the next several trading days, price is expected to reach the supply levels at 112.50, 113.00 and 113.50. There is also a demand level at 111.00, which is supposed to be a barrier to any bearish pullbacks along the way.    

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

The bias is bullish, but the bullishness is weak. Further bullish movement is expected but any surprisingly negative fundamentals can send the market tumbling (owing to the precariousness of the market). The next targets are the supply zones at 130.50, 131.00 and 132.00. A very strong buying pressure is needed for the supply zone at 132.00 to be breached to the upside, and this will not come without bearish machinations.

 

GBPJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

This cross gained about 370 pips last week, having gained over 700 pips since August 15. Price closed on Friday, around the demand zone at 146.00. The outlook on the market remains bright, and therefore, in spite of any possible pullbacks in the market, general movement will be towards the north. The Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market will aid price towards the supply zones at 146.50, 147.00 and 147.50.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“I realized that the more common pitfalls you avoid, the more edges you have relative to other traders operating with less awareness.” – VTI
