Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs

Recommended Posts

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

EURUSD has been able to maintain the bullish breakout it performed on December 3, 2015. Last week, price moved further upwards by 170 pips, closing above the support line at 1.0950. There are resistance lines at 1.1000 and 1.1050, which could be tested as the bullish journey continues. However, there is a strong possibility that EURUSD would experience a vivid pullback this week or next week.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

Since November 30, 2015, this pair has trended downwards by almost 500 pips. The bias is bearish, and it would be difficult for the pair to trend seriously upwards now (in spite of the fact that USD could be strengthened against some other currencies), due to the stamina in the Euro and the possibility of the Swiss Franc amassing strength. The support levels at 0.9800 and 0.9750 stand chances of being tested. The support level at 0.9800 was almost tested last week.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

This currency trading instrument first trended lower on Monday and Tuesday – only for further bearish movement to be rejected as price assumed a smooth rally. Since Tuesday, price has gone upwards by 250 pips, leading to a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market. The possibility of further bullish movement is not downplayed, but it should be remembered that the expectation on GBP pairs remains bearish for the month of December, thus long positions on GBPUSD should be handled with caution. There could be a large pullback before the end of this month.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

The bears were able to push USDJPY lower last week, ending the recent neutral bias on the market. Price fell by 250 pips, closing just below the supply level at 121.00. This price action has brought about a “sell” signal in the market, but the odd against the signal is the bullish expectation on JPY pairs, which could still happen anytime this month. Until there is a rally owing to the bullish expectation on JPY pairs, the “sell” signal currently in the market ought to be respected.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

EURJPY consolidated last week, and later went downwards. The downward movement was shallow; all in the context of an uptrend. The consolidation and shallow bearish movement were considerable enough to pose a threat to the extant bullish bias. A movement of 200 pips to the downside might be the end of the bullish bias, although there is a hope for further bullish journey, and that is when JPY loses strengths significantly.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“Although the price charts look the same today as they did long ago, the trade management needed constant adaptation. The markets are alive and forever changing.” – Joe Ross

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

Although the dominant bias on this pair is bullish, the bias is seriously threatened. After testing the resistance line at 1.1050, the price went down by roughly 250 pips, almost reaching the support line at 1.0800. Based on the bearish expectation on EUR (and EUR pairs) for the rest of this month, it is likely that EURUSD would go further south by 100 pips this week. In case this happens, the bias on the pair would turn bearish.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

After bottoming at the support level of 0.9800, the USD/CHF has been making a noticeable bullish attempts in the context of a downtrend. The price reached the resistance level at 0.9950 on Thursday, and then consolidated till the end of the week. At this junction the direction of the USD/CHF would be determined by what happens to EUR. There would be mixed signals on all USD pairs, for the US dollars would be weak against some currencies as well as strong against some currencies.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

What happened on Cable last week has resulted in a “sell’’ signal, in solidarity with our bearish expectation on GBP pairs. Cable went south by 300 pips to test the accumulation territory at 1.4900. This has resulted in a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, and it is likely that the southward movement would continue for the rest of this month. Therefore, any rallies that are seen should be approached as short-selling opportunities.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

This volatile currency trading instrument swung wildly last week. Price tested the demand level at 120.50, and then rose sharply to reach the supply level at 123.50 (a movement of 300 pips). After the supply level was tested, price fell by 200 pips on Friday, due to the fundamental events affecting the Yen, which gave strength to the Yen. The current bias on USD/JPY is bearish, and this should be respected as it long as it lasts.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

This market traded sideways from Monday till Thursday; and experienced a bearish breakout on Friday. The weakness in the market, coupled with its inability to trend higher, has made the outlook on the market become bearish. As EUR is weakened further, EUR/JPY might trend further south. There is a need for a serious weakening in the Yen before this bearish movement can be reversed.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

EURUSD moved upwards 100 pips last week, still showing determination to go further upwards. The market would experience some equilibrium movement this week, owing to thin activities in the markets, but possibilities of surprise movements cannot be ruled out (especially on some other EUR pairs like EURAUD, EURNZD, etc.). Bulls might target the resistance lines at 1.1000 and 1.1050 this week.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

This pair did not make any significant movement last week, and it is more likely that the sideways movement would continue this week; which could make the bias on the market turn neutral. There are support levels at 0.9850 and 0.9800. On the other hand, there are resistance levels at 0.9950 and 1.0000. It is expected that the price would oscillate between these support and resistance levels for the rest of this year – breaking them to the upside or to the downside within the first week of January 2016.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

From Monday to Tuesday, Cable dropped by 100 pips, to rise by 110 pips from Wednesday and Thursday. The current price action in the market could be rightly called a rally in the context of a downtrend, because the bearish outlook cannot be invalidated as long as price is under the distribution territory 1.5050. A very strong bearish movement would likely resume on GBP pairs on the first week of January 2016.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

This currency trading instrument performed a steady southwards movement last week. From just under the supply level at 121.50, price was able to move below the supply level at 120.50, to close at 120.27. There is a strong Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, which would enable this currency instrument to dive further by 100 pips this week or next week. At the present, long trades do not make much sense in this market.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

This cross moved upwards 100 pips in the first few days of last week, before it went down by 100 pips, reaching the demand zone at 131.50. This action supported the extant bearish bias on the market. At this juncture, the movement of this cross would be dictated by the events surrounding the Euro, which means that we might see a rally in case the Euro is strengthened further.

Here’s the market outlook for the year:

 

EURUSD

Long-term bias: Bearish

EURUSD was generally bearish in 2015, reaching a low of 1.0462 and a high of 1.1712. The last week of that year was bearish, and the bearishness could continue till February 2016. From February to April, we would witness serious bullish effort, which would be eased at the end of April, because bears would come in again and make their presence felt in the market from April to June. However, a new lease of bullish journey would be resumed in the market around October/November, which would last till the end of the year (it would even go beyond the year, into 2017, ending around February 2017). The ongoing bias is now bearish and this should be honored.

 

USDCHF

Long-term bias: Bullish

Since the large pullback that was seen in January 2015, USDCHF has been making perpetual effort to go upwards. Along the way, there were occasional instances of medium-term bearish phases in the market. The bearish phases would last for few weeks or months, only for price to recover and go up higher. In 2016, there could be intermittent phases of weakness in January. Then the market would most likely show further weakness in the months of February to April; but we can witness a smooth rally in the months of April to June. Right now, price is making attempts to go up, and it could reach the resistance levels at 1.0100 and 1.0150 in the first full week of January.

 

GBPUSD

Long-term bias: Bearish

The short-term, the medium-term, and the long-term biases on GBPUSD are all bearish. Price reached a low of 1.4565 and a high of 1.5929 in the year 2015. Since June 2015, price has come down by 1100 pips, closing at 1.4732 on December 31, 2015. The year 2014 saw far more predictable movements on GBPUSD than the year 2015 (as it was true of other major pairs and crosses). This year might be different. At the present, the bias on the GBPUSD (and other GBP pairs) is bearish and this would continue till March 2016. The market could rally between March and May of this year. It could even continue to rally in June and July; but not without visible gravity attempts from the bears. Following this, there might not be another serious weakness in the market until December 2016.

 

USDJPY

Long-term bias: Bearish

On this pair, bears won a pyrrhic victory in the year 2015. The struggle between bears and bulls were so intense that the market phases for that year were mostly consolidations and fake-out phases. The year 2014 was even better than the year 2015. The current bias is bearish, but bulls might gain upper hands before the end of January; plus their victory could last till June (though not with occasional pullbacks along the way). The market might go through some phases of weakness within July and September. Nevertheless, the bulls would push the price higher around October – an action that could last till December.

 

EURJPY

Long-term bias: Bearish

Last year, the EURJPY cross was characterized by high volatility, choppy movements and deadly struggles between bulls and bears. The extant weakness might continue till February, when price would be strengthened till April 2016. The best action to take in the market would be to seek shorting opportunities between April and September. Additionally, the market might rally from September to November; while we would witness another phases of choppy and volatile movements in December 2016.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“You will have to stick to your process as much as you can even when things do not go as expected. If you can build such a process and manage to follow it 100 per cent of the time, then you will be trading like a professional.” – Pierre Veyret

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

From Monday till Wednesday, this pair went south. However, it started a bullish journey from Thursday till the close of the market on Friday. Bulls would continue making attempts to push the price further north, but their action would not jeopardize the extant bearish outlook unless price goes above the resistance lines at 1.0000 and 1.0050. A close below the support line at 1.0800 would reinforce the extant bearish outlook.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bullish

USD/CHF went upwards from Monday till Wednesday, testing the resistance level at 1.0100. In spite of desperate effort, price was unable to break the resistance level to the upside. As a result of its inability to break the resistance level to the upside, price pulled back by at least 150 pips. There is a risk of further pullback, especially before the end of this week or early next week. The probability of CHF becoming very strong is possible this month, and therefore, we may see this effect on USDCHF (plus other CHF pairs). It cannot be said precisely how long the effect would last if it does happen. This is simply a seasonal tendency on CHF pairs, which have been happening for many years; only that the event of last January was unprecedented.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

Cable came down by 250 pips last week. Since December 14, 2015, price has come down 700 pips. There is a clean Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, and there is a high probability that the bearish movement would continue. The accumulation territories at 1.4000 and 1.3950 could be tested this week. Any rallies we see here would be transient; as the outlook on GBP pairs remain bearish for this week.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

This is a bear market, which started a few weeks ago. Price went down 250 pips last week (and it has come down by 500 pips from the middle of December 2015). There is a lot of trading activity around the demand level at 117.50, which stands a good chance of being breached to the downside. Additional targets for this week are the demand levels at 117.00 and 116.50.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

The EURJPY cross plunged by 350 pips last week, reaching the demand zone at 127.00. From that demand zone, price bounced upwards in the context of a downtrend, testing the supply level at 129.00. This is merely a bullish effort in the context of a downtrend, for the cross cannot go upwards significantly as long as the Yen has lots of stamina in it. Price could retest the demand zones at 127.50 and 127.00.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Neutral

This pair experienced short-term upswings and downswings, with no directional movements in the medium term. Just like last week, there may not be very strong movements this week, though there could be significant movements around the end of this month (which could happen on other major pairs as well). There are support lines at 1.0850 and 1.0800. There are also resistance lines at 1.1000 and 1.1050. Price must go above these resistance lines or support lines, paving way for a strong movement expected around the end of this month. It is likely that EUR would rally, which would be visible on all EUR pairs.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Neutral

Whatever happens on USDCHF would be determined by what happens to EUR. The bias is now neutral, owing to the recent erratic movements in the market. There are support levels at 0.9950 and 0.9900. There are also resistance levels at 1.0050 and 1.0100; and so it is expected that price would go above these resistance levels or the support levels. A movement to the downside is more likely because the resistance level at 1.0100 is now a major barrier to bulls. That resistance level has successfully thwarted rally attempts within the last two weeks.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

This currency trading instrument came down by, at least, 250 pips last week, almost testing the accumulation territory at 1.4250. Price has come down by 950 pips since the middle of December 2015. There is a very strong bearish bias on the market – it does not make sense to go long until there is a bullish retracement of about 300 pips. That is the only condition that can threaten the existing bearish bias; otherwise rallies would offer new short-selling opportunities.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

USDJPY consolidated last week, though it showed determination to continue going downwards. Price has come down by close to 600 pips since December 18, 2015, testing the demand level at 116.50 on January 15, 2016. There is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market and it is possible that the market would continue its southward journey, just as certain JPY pairs have done.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

This cross, which fell sharply in the first week of this year, simply moved sideways last week. The outlook on the cross is bearish. However, the bearish outlook might be overturned by events affecting the Euro. In case the Euro gains lots of stamina, a rally attempt might be witnessed on this cross, contrary to what other JPY pairs might be doing.

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

As it was prognosticated, EURUSD did not experience a significant movement last week, though price moved lower. The lower movement has resulted in a bearish signal, since there is now a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market. There are bearish targets at the support lines of 1.0750 and 1.0700, which would be reached as price continues meandering its way further south. EURUSD, and of course other EUR pairs, could become weaker. Generally, very strong movements should be seen on most (major) pairs and crosses this week and next week.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bullish

This currency trading instrument moved higher last week (by around 140 pips), resulting in a bullish outlook on it. The previously adamant resistance level at 1.0100, which is now a support level, was broken to the upside. Price is currently above the support level at 1.0150, threatening to go further north. The outlook on USD is now bullish, which should reflect on other USD pairs, save USDCAD. This is also true of CAD pairs, for other currencies are weak against CAD, which should continue for some time.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

Cable reached a low of 1.4078 and a high of 1.4362 last week, making a bullish effort in the context of a downtrend. The bias remains bearish, unless price goes above the distribution territory 1.4500, which is a daunting task for bulls because they would be faced with a strengthening USD. Therefore, Cable might experience some pullbacks this week.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

This pair tested the demand level at 116.00 and bounced upwards by roughly 280 pips, closing at 118.77 on Friday. This rally was strong enough to become a threat to the recent bearish bias – which would be rendered useless once the supply level at 119.50 is overcome. The possibility of further rally is high, owing to the expected strength in USD. There would be strong volatility on JPY pair from this week till the end of the month.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

EURJPY consolidated throughout last week. Even bearish breakouts were quickly countered by bullish corrections. Bulls and bears are presently engaged in a deadlock struggle that will come to an end soon, for this cross will start a directional movement this week, though a rally might be difficult as long as EUR is weak. High volatility would be witnessed.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“Learning the business of trading is basically no different from learning any other business. Winning means learning major guidelines and concepts that you repeat so often in your own behavior that they become good habits. These good habits then become automatic behavior patterns…” - Andy Jordan

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Neutral

This pair went up from the support line at 1.0800, reaching the resistance line at 1.0950. From that resistance line, price went down 120 pips. There is a neutral bias on this pair, which would remain in force until price goes below the support line at 1.0800 or above the resistance line at 1.0950. For a few weeks, that resistance line at 1.0950 has been refusing bullish movement above it, and therefore it is more likely that price would go further downwards this week, breaking below the support line at 1.0800, owing to a bearish outlook on EUR pairs for this week and for most of February 2016.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bullish

Last week, USDCHF moved sideways from Monday to Thursday, in the context of an uptrend, but broke upwards on Friday, reinforcing the existing uptrend. The resistance level at 1.0250 has already been tried, and there is a high possibility that price would go above that resistance level, targeting another resistance levels at 1.0300 and 1.0350. This would be easier especially in the wake of a weaker EURUSD.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

As it is always mentioned, long trades will usually be traps on GBPUSD until it is clearly confirmed that the bearish bias is completely over. Bulls made commendable effort to effect a rally last week – all of which proved futile with what happened on Friday, January 29, 2016 (a 200-pip pullback). The outlook on GBP, and therefore, GBP pairs is bearish for the month of February, even beyond the month. Bullish signals in this market should be ignored, because GBP would face challenges at many fronts, including the strengthening of AUD and NZD in this month.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

This currency trading instrument moved in a tight range from Monday to Thursday, but there was a significant bullish breakout early Friday. This bullish breakout took price upwards by 300 pips, testing the supply level at 121.50; plus the rally would continue this week. There were strong bullish breakouts also on other JPY pairs: a beginning of protracted bullish movements on those pairs. Yes, bullish movements were already expected to start on JPY pairs around the end of January, and as a result of this, traders are advised to shun bearish signals on JPY pairs in February, because the outlook on them is bullish for the month.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

This cross had already started moving upwards before the massive bullish breakout happened on Friday. Altogether, price went upwards by 400 pips last week, reaching the supply zone at 132.00. Here, pullbacks should be seen as opportunities to go long, because JPY pairs have high probabilities of trending further upwards in the month of February 2016. Currencies like EUR and GBP, which would be weak against some other currencies, would be seen going up against JPY in February. EURJPY could go further upwards by at least, 200 pips this week

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“One major aspect of Forex I really value is that trends are easy to find. Trading a trending chart has a big edge for two main reasons. First, trends generate good follow-through. In many instances they go much further than anyone might have expected.” – Gabriel Grammatidis

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

This pair was engaged in a smooth bullish run last week, moving upwards 420 pips before the bearish retracement that was seen on Friday (February 5, 2016). The bearish retracement could be taken as a sale in the context of an uptrend, for the uptrend might continue this week. As long as price is above the support line at 1.0950, the bullish bias cannot be threatened. The resistance lines at 1.1250 and 1.1300 are the potential targets for bulls this week.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

Owing to the perceived weakness in USD, USDCHF dropped 340 pips last week, ending the recent bullish outlook on the market. The support level at 0.9900 was tried, before the current upward bounce, which is, however, shallow. That support level at 0.9900 could be retried again and get breached to the downside, as price possibly attains the support levels at 0.9850 and 0.9800 this week. It must be noted that the market is now below the psychological level at 1.0000; so it might be difficult for bulls to effect any bullish changes that would take the price above that level. In case the psychological level at 1.0000 is broken to the upside, then a rally that would eventually threaten the bearish bias might begin.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

From the low of January 29, 2016, Cable rose steeply, testing the distribution territory at 1.4650 on Thursday, February 4, 2016. From that distribution territory, price has come down by 200 pips, on the following day. That correction is a proof of the vulnerability of the ongoing strength in Sterling, for the outlook on GBP pairs remains bearish for this month. While GBP is strong versus USD, it is weak against certain other currencies, for instance, GBPJPY, GBPCHF, EURGBP, etc. The market might resume a rally this week, albeit further bearish correction of another 200 pips would put an end to the current bullish outlook.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

The sudden and unexpected weakness of this currency trading instrument was partly due to the weakness of USD. On January 29, 2016, price touched the supply level at 121.50 and dropped 500 pips in the following week, which has resulted in an undisputed Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market. Long trades are not currently logical until there is a clear indication that bulls have taken control again. Right now, bears are the ones in control.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

Unlike other JPY pairs (e.g. NZDJPY, AUDJPY, etc.), EURJPY did not come down significantly because of the strength in EUR itself. Last week, price came down only by 160 pips – a movement that was not strong enough to invalidate the bullish bias on the market. Only a movement below the demand zone at 128.50 would put an end to the extant bullish bias, as price is expected to rally this week or next. It would be mentioned that JPY pairs still have the possibility of rallying this month.

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

EURUSD moved upwards by 230 pips last week, topping at the resistance line of 1.1350, before the current bearish correction. From that resistance line, price got corrected by 100 pips while the bias on the market remains bullish. There is a need for price to go above that resistance line this week, aiming for other resistance lines at 1.1400 and 1.1450. Otherwise, bears might overcome bulls and manage to push price further south.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

This pair has proven to be one of the strongest trending among the majors. Price dropped by roughly 260 pips last week, moving briefly below the support level at 0.9700. Then price turned upwards, making a shallow bullish effort. The bullish effort cannot render the current bearish bias invalid unless price goes above the resistance levels at 0.9900 and 1.0000, which is not an easy task, given the ongoing bearish sentiment in the market. USDCHF is suffering from all-round attacks, for EURUSD is up, causing USDCHF to remain under pressure, and CHF itself is strong (see CHF pairs). Eventually, the shallow bullish effort in the market might turn out to be another shallow short-selling opportunity.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

Cable merely consolidated throughout last week, in the context of a medium-term uptrend. The presence of bulls is still visible in the market, though it is possible for them to be subdued by bears any time. A movement above the distribution territories at 1.4600 and 1.4650 would reinforce the current bullish effort, while a movement below the accumulation territories at 1.4350 and 1.4300 would invalidate it.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

The price has gone down by 600 pips this week, and it has gone down by 1000 pips since January 29, 2016. The demand level at 111.50 was tried before the upward bounce that happened on Friday, February 12, 2016. The upward bounce is another opportunity to go short while the bearish trend lasts. The bias on JPY pairs is currently bearish, although that does not rule out the possibility of them rallying before the end of this month.

.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

This cross experienced a large pullback last week, going down by 450 pips and reaching the demand zone at 126.00. Thus time around the stamina in EUR has been unable to cause it to withstand the assault from JPY (as it is true of some other EUR pairs). It is logical to assume further southerly movement in the market, due to a strong Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market. Along the way, upward bounces might be ignored as long as it is clear that bears are in control.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“Almost all of my trading is mechanical — 100% based on rules I have tested and found to be valid. I tend to ignore news of the day, fundamental information and adverse “big picture” scenarios because these do not impact my systems greatly. Sometimes, these factors affect my results in the short term, but over the long term, the systems have a positive expectancy.” - Kevin J. Davey

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

This pair went slightly downwards on Monday and moved sideways for the rest of the week. A closer look at the chart revealed a consolidation to the downside, which threatens the recent bullish bias. For the bias not to turn bearish, bulls must prevent bears from pushing price below the support line at 1.1000. In case bulls succeed in doing this, we may see the price going upwards this week, thereby ending the threat to the recent bullish bias.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

USDCHF went up 170 pips last week, but it met a strong opposition at the resistance level of 0.9950. Price was unable to go above that resistance level in spite of several attempts to breach it. This week, the movement of USDCHF would be largely determined by whatever happens to EURUSD. USDCHF may experience great difficulty in breaking the resistance level at 1.0000 to the upside (an event that could end the current bearish bias in the market). Failure to do this could reinforce the bearish bias, which is currently under threat from bulls.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Neutral

From the high of Monday, Cable dropped by 280 pips, reaching the accumulation territory at 1.4250 on Wednesday, February 17, 2016. The accumulation territory at 1.4250 has proven to be a recalcitrant barrier to bears, for the price could not go below it in spite of forays into it, and this has forced Cable into a neutral phase. The market ended on Friday with a strong upward bounce, which might be a short selling opportunity unless the distribution territories at 1.4550 and 1.4600 are overcome.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

This market rallied 120 pips on Monday – resulting in a better entry price for sellers. From the high of Tuesday (114.87), price dropped by 240 pips, to close at 112.64 on Friday. There is a clean Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, which indicates the possibility of price going further south, reaching the demand levels at 111.50 and 111.00. The chances of JPY pairs rallying significantly this month are now slim.

 

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

In the context of a downtrend, EURJPY cross went upwards on Monday and started coming down from the high of Tuesday. From Tuesday, price came down gradually by 300 pips, reaching the demand zone at 125.00 on Friday. There is an ongoing bearish signal on this cross, which may enable it to move further southward by at least, 200 pips this week, reaching the demand zones at 124.50 and 123.50. Only a sudden weakness in the Yen would cause this cross to skyrocket.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“As you fully understand “your trading game” and know how the markets are functioning, you greatly increase your probability of success. Most of all, you will have “fun” trading — independent of winning or losing. If you do not enjoy yourself trading, then you are probably not trading the right systems – ones that fit you.” - Gabriel Grammatidis

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

EURUSD traded lower on Monday, and then moved sideways until Friday, when it traded further southward, closing at 1.0931. Altogether, price moved downwards close to 200 pips, while the outlook on the market is bearish. There are support lines at 1.0900 and 1.0850, which would attempt to challenge more bearish movement. This week, EURUSD may be seen making attempts to rally, which might become serious in case bulls are determined enough. In fact, all major pairs would been seen making short-term significant swings in the month of March.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Neutral

This pair merely traded sideways last week, meandering its way between the support level at 0.9850 and the resistance level at 1.0000. There is going to be a break above that resistance level or below that support level this week, although a break below the support level is more likely, because the resistance level at 1.0000 is a great barrier and because EURUSD could be seen making some bullish attempt this week. Whatever happens this week should put an end to the current neutral bias on the market.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

GBPUSD dropped over 430 pips last week, almost testing the accumulation territory at 1.3850. Further bearish movement is possible this week and next week: Upwards bounces should be taken as short-selling opportunities. Just as it was predicted at the beginning of February 2016, GBP pairs are trending significantly downwards and they would remain under bearish pressure. However, around the end of March, GBP pairs would start rallying significantly.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

In the middle of last week, this currency trading instrument started a bullish correction that has actually become a threat to the recent bearish outlook on the market. This trading instrument should continue going further upwards this week, until the recent bearish outlook is rendered completely invalid. On timeframes lower than the 4-hour chart, there are already bullish signals. The bullish correction is also visible on other JPY pairs, which would most probably be seen making commendable bullish efforts this week and next. The outlook on JPY pairs is bright for the month of March.

 

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

EUR/JPY cross moved lower last week, reaching the demand zone at 122.50 on Wednesday, February 24, 2016. Since then, price has gone up more than 200 pips – a sort of bullish correction that is also visible on other JPY pairs. Further northward movement of 250 pips would lead to a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market; otherwise price could test the demand zone at 122.50 again, owing to bearish reprisals (though it is unlikely that price would go below that demand zone).

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“I love the lifestyle of being a trader. I get to run my own business and set my own schedule. They say you should do what you love, and this is exactly what I love. What is there not to love? I wake up, take a few trades during the day, and I'm done! I can move on and enjoy the rest of my day. The best part of this life for me is that it allows me more time to spend with my children. I would not have this flexibility if I worked an 80-hour week in corporate America.” - Richard Mazur (Source: Collective2)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

As it was mentioned in the last forecast, EURUSD has been making some bullish attempt, which, however, has not been significant enough to render the recent bearish bias invalid. Bears pushed price downwards, but met a stiff rejection at the support line of 1.0850. Price then moved sideways and later broke upwards on Thursday, trending upwards by at least 160 pips. Since it is expected that the bullish attempt would continue this week, price could reach the resistance lines at 1.1050 and 1.1100 in the week.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Neutral

USDCHF merely moved sideways throughout last week, with no directional journey to the upside or to the downside. The sideways movement was generally between the support level at 0.9900 and the resistance level at 1.0000. Nevertheless, there is going to be a breakout this week, which would most probably favor sellers, because this pair would continue to be influenced by gravity as long as EURUSD is making bullish attempt. The support level at 0.9800 could thus be tested this week.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

The bias on Cable is now bullish. Throughout last week, Cable made a perpetual journey to the north, going upwards by 400 pips and almost testing the distribution territory at 1.4250 (after price started going upward from the accumulation territory at 1.3850 on Monday). There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market and it is much more likely that Cable would go upwards by at least, additional 200 pips this week.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Neutral

Unlike most other JPY pairs, which traded upwards last week, USDJPY simply moved sideways. This is because USD is not strong enough to take advantage of the weak JPY (as other pairs like AUDJPY and NZDJPY have done). In fact, we can see that USD is weak versus other major pairs (like AUDUSD, NZDUSD, GBPUSD, etc.). This week, there is a probability that USDJPY would continue moving sideways or even consolidate to the downside, for there may not be a significant rally here as long as USD is weak.

 

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

This cross traded downwards on Monday, going briefly below the demand zone at 122.50 on Tuesday and then starting a bullish journey on the same day (March 1, 2016), which saw a gain of almost 450 pips at the end of that week. The supply zone at 125.50 has already been tested and it would be breached to the upside as bullish continues to push price upwards. The supply levels at 126.00 and 126.50 are potential targets for bulls this week.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“How about your trading? What reward/risk ratio do you think is acceptable on your trades? Do you have a defined targeted ratio before you enter a position and an acceptable effective ratio resulting from your trades? Do you manage your current reward risk ratio on open positions? Developing a strong and deeper understanding of your reward to risk management can be a great edge and a path to trading mastery.” - Sam Eder (Source: Vantharp.com)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

This pair consolidated from Monday to Wednesday, breaking out northward on Thursday (March 10, 2016). On that day, price first spiked downwards and then rallied significantly, testing the resistance line at 1.1200. There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market and it is possible that the price would continue going northwards this week, going above the resistance line at 1.1200, and testing another resistance lines at 1.1250 and 1.1300.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

USDCHF was merely consolidating between the support level at 0.9900 and the resistance level at 1.0000. On Thursday, the market performed a false breakout above the resistance level at 1.0000 and later trended strongly downwards. This has led to a “sell” signal in the market, which might continue this week. USD will be facing challenges from some major pairs, like EUR and GBP (even NZD will rally this week, for it would be strong versus other currencies). So USD is in for a serious battering this week.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

As it was mentioned last week, this currency trading instrument rallied, testing the distribution territory at 1.4400 and closing at 1.4383 on Friday. Price is supposed to continue going upwards this week, targeting the distribution territories at 1.4450 and 1.4500. Price might even move beyond these distribution territories, but not without attacks from bears, who would show enough desperation in dragging price south.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Neutral

USDJPY went through a turbulent phase within March 7 and 11, with no clear victory between bull and bear. On Monday and Tuesday, price moved downwards. On Wednesday, it moved upwards, while Thursday was full of morbid threats from bears. Bulls dared the bears’ threats on Friday, managing to push price upwards slightly on Friday. What will happen next? The current price action shows that price could continue moving upwards from here, although persistent weakness in USD could cause the anticipated bullish movement to be somewhat limited.

 

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

This cross consolidated on Monday, moved downwards on Tuesday and began to rally Wednesday. In fact, the rally that happened on Wednesday took the cross upwards by over 400 pips, as its price tested the supply zone at 127.00. Bulls are still showing willingness to push the cross further north; plus there is a bullish signal in the market. The potential targets for the week are located at 127.50 and 128.00.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“Effective traders are willing to get out of their comfort zones and try new things. I know it might be scary to go into the unknown, but to have more in life, you must take smart risks.” – Louise Bedford

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

From Monday till Wednesday, this pair moved south. Price broke upwards on Wednesday as it rose significantly by 280 pips that day and on Thursday. On Friday, price got corrected lower a bit, closing at 1.1269. However, the outlook on EUR is bearish for this week, and bulls would experience serious difficulties in pushing price further upwards. This weakness could also be witnessed on other EUR pair like EURCAD and EURNZD.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

Last week, USDCHF took a serious battering as prognosticated, given what also happened to USDCAD, EURUSD, GBPUSD, NZDUSD, AUDUSD, etc. After consolidating from Monday to Wednesday, price dropped like a stone on Wednesday and Thursday, testing the support level at 0.9650. While further southward moved is not ruled out, the situation could change this week, especially in the case of EURUSD, for USDCHF might rally considerably when EURUSD trends downwards seriously.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

Cable was subjected to strong movements last week. From Monday to Wednesday, price dipped by 320 pips, later to rise on the same day. Within Wednesday and Thursday, price went upwards 440 pips. But bulls have met a stubborn opposition at the distribution territory of 1.4500; they could not push the price beyond that accumulation territory. Should bulls succeed in pushing price beyond 1.4500, the next targets would be the distribution territories at 1.4550 and 1.4600. There are also probabilities of pullbacks along the way.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

USDJPY, which was quite choppy in the last few weeks, gave in to gravity last week. Price dropped by 300 pips, ramming into the demand level at 111.00. Although there is a clean Bearing Confirmation Pattern in the market, price could rally this week. After all, price has been unable to close below the demand level at 110.00 as it bounced off that level. JPY pairs are expected to rally this week, and USDJPY may not be an exception. So it is rational to assume that the bearish journey that occurred last week simply paved way for the bullish journey that could occur this week.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

This cross consolidated throughout last week, not moving significantly upwards or downwards. This bullish outlook is still somewhat valid despite the ongoing consolidation, though a breakout is imminent this week. When a breakout occurs, it would most probably favor bulls, because the outlook on JPY pairs is bullish for this week. Traders are advised not to trade against JPY pairs this week.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“We hope your January through February proves to be profitable. After one more month, March, you can evaluate your quarterly trades to make adjustments. If adjustments are necessary, make sure that they align with your trading plans.” – Tradingeducators

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

As expected, this pair got corrected lower last week, moving downward by 120 pips before closing while consolidating. The support line at 1.1150 has been tested and it would be breached to the downside this week. EUR would be seen weakening against major currencies before the end of this month, except in the case of EURJPY (making the bias on the market go bearish). Therefore, the support lines at 1.1100, 1.1050 and 1.1000 are vulnerable this week and next.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

USDCHF moved higher by 100 pips last week, closing above the support level at 0.9750. It might be possible for USDCHF to go upwards this week, because further bearish movement on EURUSD could help it to rally. In addition, CHF itself has a probability of becoming weak soon (CHF could be weak versus other majors, save CHFJPY). Thus the resistance levels at 0.9800, 0.9850 and 0.9900 could be attained this week or next.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

This currency trading instrument went south by roughly 400 pips last week, almost reaching the accumulation territory at 1.4050. Although there is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, bulls would be seen trying to push up the price this week, with a measure of success. There is an accumulation territory at 1.4000, which would try to hinder further bearish journey. When price turns and goes upwards, the distribution territories at 1.4200, 1.4250 and 1.4300 could be attained this week or next.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

USDJPY was seen making bullish effort throughout last week. However, the bullish effort was not significant enough to bring about a change in the dominant bias. It is expected that the pair would continue moving upwards this week, owing to a bullish expectation on JPY pairs. USDJPY would move upwards by a minimum of 100 pips during the week, causing a bullish bias to form in the market.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Neutral

This cross consolidated throughout last week, neither going below the demand zone at 125.00 nor going above the supply zone at 126.50. A breakout is imminent this week, which would most possibly favor bulls. A closer look at the market shows that the bulls are still determined to effect a rally here, which could make price to reach the supply zones at 127.00 and 127.50.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

EURUSD moved upwards by 250 pips last week, testing the resistance line at 1.1400. That resistance line has proven to be an obstacle to bulls because price was unable to close above it last week (in spite of forays into it). Price might be able to go above the resistance line eventually, but it might not be able to go far north. There is a possibility that this pair would experience a large pullback this week, which might enable it to reach the support lines at 1.1300 and 1.1250.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

This currency trading instrument went down 200 pips last week, closing below the resistance level at 0.9600. The support levels at 0.9550 and 0.9500 could be breached this week. However, there might be a rally – which would be significant enough to threaten the current bearish bias. In case price moves above the resistance level at 0.9850, it would result in a clean Bullish Confirmation Pattern.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

From Monday to Wednesday, Cable went upwards by 330 pips, reaching the distribution territory at 1.4450. Bears effected further movement at that territory, causing the market to experience a bearish correction of 250 pips. The ongoing bearish correction might make price further downwards by 100 – 200 pips, but there would soon be an exponential rally in the market, which would eventually render the current bearish outlook invalid. The outlook on GBP is bright for the month of April, and as a result of this, we would see GBP gaining strength versus other major currencies. Wild fluctuations with other major currencies like AUD and NZD would be witnessed.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

There is a currently a “sell” signal in this market, owing to a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in it. Price closed below the supply level at 112.00, going towards the demand levels at 111.50 and 111.00. Long trades do not make sense in this market, until there is a clean indication of bulls’ hegemony, which would only be brought about by serious weakness in Yen. The movement for this month would mostly be bearish.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

Bulls were able to push this popular cross to the upside until it reached the supply zone at 128.00. There has been a shallow pullback around that zone, causing the cross to close at 127.24 on April 1, 2016. Further bullish movement is possible this week, though there could be another bearish run before the end of the month. JPY pairs are expected to continue moving upwards this week (and perhaps, next week), but they would begin to go south before the end of the month.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

In the context of a downtrend, EURUSD consolidated throughout last week. One big formidable barrier to further northward journey is the resistance line 1.1400 (though the resistance line at 1.1450 was also tested). Bulls were unable to breach the resistance line at 1.1400 to the upside in spite of many forays into it. This week would be decisive for the pair. First, a breakout to the upside or the downside would happen. It would most probably be to the downside, should bulls fail to push price above the aforementioned resistance line. In case, price goes above the resistance line and remain above it, it would spell a defeat for bears.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

This pair experienced a flat movement last week, not reaching, nor going below the support level at 0.9500 in spite of the fact that the bias is bearish. By the indication in the chart, the market would most likely go further south this week, which would be corroborated by the ability of USDCHF to go below the support level at 0.9500. In case the pair fails to achieve this, a considerable rally would be witnessed.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

Cable was very volatile last week – reaching a high of 1.4319 and a low of 1.4004. The overall sentiment is negative, but bulls are not keeping their fingers crossed in this situation, for they are making attempts to effect a rally. One thing should be noted: The possibility of GBP gaining stamina is very high this week. GBP might be seen strengthening versus other major pairs; an event that could start this week. Therefore, the current bearish bias on the market might be challenged and eventually invalidated.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

Since March 29, 2016, USDJPY has dropped by nearly 600 pips. Last week alone, price dropped by at least, 350 pips. This has caused a strong Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market. After all, it had been forecasted that that JPY pairs might become weak before the end of this month, and the weakness started earlier than anticipated. On USDJPY, bears are still determined to reach the demand levels at 107.50, 107.00 and 106.50.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

This cross dropped 450 pips last week alone, almost testing the demand zone at 122.50. The shallow northward effort that was witnessed around the end of the weak is cleanly negligible, for price is expected to continue its southwards journey this week, reaching the support zones at 122.50, 122.00 and 121.50. Long trades do not look rational in the market, unless there is a clear sign of Yen easing.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“When you take action, and make enough trades, the odds may work in your favor, and you'll end up with profits. So as you trade, take an action-oriented approach. As Mark Douglas suggests in "Trading in the Zone," the more you find excuses to avoid making trades, the less likely you'll be at actually taking home profits. But if you look for an edge, and use this edge to make numerous trades, you'll increase your chances of success. In trading, there are proven strategies that work under specific market conditions. If you look hard enough, you'll find them, and use them to your advantage.” – Joe Ross (Source: Tradingeducators.com)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Neutral

EURUSD traded lower last week, testing the support line at 1.1250, to close at 1.1282 on Friday. The movement of the price has essentially been sideways since the beginning of April and there is no significant directional journey till now. However, there is a possibility that bulls would effect a rally this week, which might enable price to reach the resistance lines at 1.1350, 1.1400 and 1.1450. In addition, EUR pairs could be seen strengthening against other majors.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

This pair moved upwards last week, in the context of a downtrend. Price tested the support level at 0.9500 and later rose above the support level 0.9650, which means the downtrend is currently being threatened. A movement above the resistance level at 0.9750 would mean the end of the downtrend, but that would probably not happen. The outlook on USD for this week is bearish, and as such, further southward movement could be witnessed before the end of the week, which could cause price to reach the support levels at 0.9600, 0.9550 and 0.9500. This could cause the existing downtrend to be strengthened eventually.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Neutral

The GBPUSD was volatile throughout last week, with neither bulls nor bears having upper hands. There should be a directional movement this week, which would most probably be in favor of bulls. This means the market could rally this week, reaching the distribution territories at 1.4300, 1.4350 and 1.4400. The accumulation territories at 1.4100 and 1.4050 may do a good job in thwarting bearish attempts this week. Some GBP pairs might also rally, like GBPCAD.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

From April 11 to 14, this currency trading instrument trended upwards by 190 pips. On April 15, price got corrected lower, in conjunction with the existing bearish bias. This means the rally that was seen between April 11 and 14 was a mere short-term rally in the context of a downtrend. Further bearish movement is expected this week, which might make price go down by at least 150 pips. Any rallies seen this week should be taken as short-selling opportunities.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

This cross, which dropped steeply in the first week of this month, was caught in an equilibrium phase last week. Price would go out of the equilibrium phase this week, and most likely go further southward, owing to the Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market. Price closed below the supply zone at 123.00 on Friday. In case price breaks out to the south, the demand zones at 122.00 and 121.50 might be tested. There cannot be a threat to the current Bearish Confirmation Pattern unless the supply zone at 126.00 is overcome.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

This pair was bearish last week. Bulls tried to push price upwards. But as a result of severe opposition from bears, price came down on Friday, following the volatility that occurred on Thursday. There is a “sell” signal in the market, and it may probably go further downwards this week, reaching the support lines at 1.1200 and 1.1150. Price might even go below these targets, and the “sell” signal would never be invalidated until the resistance line at 1.1400 is overcome.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bullish

The current bullish movement on this pair started on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. This has led to a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, and it is likely that price would continue its bullish movement this week, reaching the resistance levels at 0.9800 and 0.9850. A movement beyond these resistance levels is even possible: though there is one obstacle in the way of USDCHF, and that is an expected strength in CHF before the end of this week. Please watch CHF pairs.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

As it was mentioned last week, GBP was able to rally against certain majors, which is visible on some crosses like GBPNZD, GBPJPY, GBPCHF, EURGBP, etc. GBPUSD also was bullish last week in spite of desperate struggles of bears against it. From the accumulation territory at 1.4150 the price trended upwards, with some pullbacks on the way, reached the distribution territory at 1.4450, before the market closed on a slight retracement. Price moved upwards by roughly 300 pips last week; plus further northward movement is expected this week.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

USDJPY went upwards by 370 pips last week. At the beginning of last week, price gapped down slightly into the demand level at 108.00, and since then a rally started gradually (from Monday to Thursday). That rally gained momentum on Friday, April 22, 2016, and this has resulted in an invalidation of the recent bearish outlook on the market. The bias is now bullish and further northward movement of at least, 150 pips, is expected this week. One thing must be noted: There is also a possibility of a strong bearish movement on USDJPY (and of course, other JPY pairs) before the end of this week.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

This currency trading instrument also went bullish last week by 360 pips, after price ran into a solid demand zone at 122.00 at the beginning of last week. On Friday, price closed above the demand zone at 125.00, now very close to the supply zone at 125.50. This has rendered the recent bearish outlook on the market useless. The market would continue moving north this week, since there is now a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, but that does not rule out probability00 of a pullback before the end of this month.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“Markets are a reflection of rational human behavior — whether 5min or monthly chart. This fractal nature of markets is due to humans’ psychological make-up. Until we evolve into a new species, price action will always be the same.” – Gabriel Grammatidis

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

The EURUSD moved upwards 230 pips last week – an action that has resulted in a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the 4-hour chart. The resistance line at 1.1450 has been tested and it would be breached to the upside, as price targets other resistance lines at 1.1500 and 1.1550. However, the month of May 2016 would be challenging for bulls because EUR would be weak in some cases. There is an exception of course, like EURAUD, because AUD would be weak against other currencies in May.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

This pair merely went in the opposite direction to EURUSD. Price dropped 220 pips and later closed below the resistance level at 0.9600. There is now a bearish outlook on the market and further southwards movement is possible this week, Bears might push the pair towards the support lines at 0.9550 and 0.9500. There cannot be a reversal of this bearish movement unless there is a serious weakness in EURUSD.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

GBPUSD was able to rally gradually last week, reaching the distribution territory at 1.4650. Bulls fought desperately at the distribution territory at 1.4600; only to meet another strong opposition at the distribution territory at 1.4650. Bulls should be able to overcome the opposition at this distribution territory, owing to the bullish outlook on GBPUSD (and most other GBP pairs like GBPAUD and GBPNZD) for the month of May 2016. Price would move up further by 200 pips this week.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

This currency trading instrument went sideways from Monday to Wednesday, and then dropped like a stone on Thursday. Price dropped by 500 pips, closing below the supply level at 106.50. There has been a bearish signal in the market, including other JPY pairs. This bearish movement is supposed to continue this week as price action is characterized by lower highs and lower lows. Short-term rallies can be taken as short-selling opportunities.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

Just as it was mentioned in the last forecast, EURJPY cross first trudged upwards from April 25 to 27, and then plummeted. The drop was significant enough to overturn the recent bullish gains, causing a Bearish Confirmation Pattern to form in the market. Price has gone below the supply zones at 124.00, 123.00 and 122.00, reaching out for the demand zones beneath them. The outlook on JPY pairs is bearish for the month of May. Therefore, long trades do not make sense here until there is a strong bullish reversal in the market: something that may take place before the end of May.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

"The goal of a successful trader is to make the best trades. Money is secondary." – Dr. Alexander Elder

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Neutral

EURUSD went upwards on Monday and Tuesday, topping at 1.1615. Since then, price has come down by over 200 pips, closing at 1.1403 on Friday. It is clear that the gains made by bulls have been erased by bears, but the bias on the market would not really turn bearish until price goes below the support line at 1.1300. That is exactly what is expected this week: The outlook on EUR is bearish and the currency would be weakened against other majors. By the end of this week, there could be a Bearish Confirmation Pattern on EURUSD.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bullish

Between Monday and Tuesday, this pair dipped into the support level at 0.9450. From that support level, further dip was rejected as price assumed a clean northwards movement, closing on Friday, above the support level at 0.9700. That was a movement of over 280 pips! This week, the market area to be attacked first would the resistance level at 0.9750, after which bulls would carry their battle towards other resistance levels at 0.9800 and 0.9850. The bullishness on USDCHF ought to have become more conspicuous by the end of this week.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

Here, bulls managed to push price towards the distribution territory at 1.4750 – a juncture at which they were overpowered by bears. Price has come down 320 pips since then, closing below the distribution territory at 1.4450. What next? Since the outlook on USD is bright for this week, GBPUSD might have some difficulties going upwards (although that is not an impossibility). On the other hand, GBP would be strong in its own right, and it may be seen going upwards versus other currencies like EUR, AUD, and NZD.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

This currency trading instrument simply consolidated throughout last week, though in the context of a downtrend. The possible direction on USDJPY is ambiguous for this week. We might see bears pushing the pair further southward; whereas it is a probability that could be frustrated by expected stamina in USD. The monthly outlook on JPY pairs is bearish till around the end of the May, when they might rally.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

Last week, this cross also behaved almost similarly to USDJPY. There were fleeting upwards and downwards swings on the cross, while the bias remained bearish. This week, we could see further bearish movement on the cross, which might take price below the demand zones at 121.50 and 121.00. Since the current outlook on JPY pairs is bearish and EUR is also expected to be weakened, EURJPY should decline further.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“I was born in San Juan City, Argentina. It is very close to the Andes Mountains. I have a degree in Business Administration. I've always been interested in trading, but what really forced my hand, and made me absolutely need to become a full-time trader, was a conversation I once had with a professor. When he learned I was experimenting with different automated trading algorithms, he laughed and told me I was a fool to think I could beat the market. Challenge accepted! From that moment, I became a trader!” - Maximiliano Lepez (Source: Collective2.com)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

This pair simply moved sideways in the first few days of last week – a result of deadlock between bulls and the bears. On May 12, 2016, the bears were pummeled and forced to give way, as price moved south vividly, just as it was mentioned in the last forecast. Further southward movement is anticipated this week, because USD is supposed to gain strength versus a number of major currencies, like AUD, CAD, NZD; with EUR included.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bullish

As it was forecasted before, USDCHF managed to go upwards last week, in spite of desperate opposition from bears. The bullish movement last week was not up to 100 pips. Price is now around the resistance level at 0.9750 (below our targets for last week). The targets at 0.9800 and 0.9850 are still valid: Bulls would push the market upwards, plus price could even go beyond those resistance levels.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Neutral

GBPUSD was caught in an equilibrium phase throughout last week, save the slight dip that was witnessed on Friday. In the past several days, price has not been able to stay above the distribution territory at 1.4500 or below the accumulation territory at 1.4350. A breakout is imminent this week, which would favor bears because USD could gain some stamina this week. However, GBP would make some gains against other currencies, especially AUD and NZD, since the outlook on them is bearish for this week.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Neutral

USDJPY moved upwards on Monday and Tuesday, and then consolidated for the rest of last week. Since this pair, just like most other pairs, did not experience strong movement last week, the bias on it has turned neutral in the short-term. However there is a probability of tour de force this week, which could trigger a significant movement on USDJPY, driving it above the supply level at 110.50 or below the demand level at 107.50.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Neutral

The initial bullish gains that were seen on the first few days of last week were forfeited as a result of a bearish movement that occurred in the last few days of the week. There is a considerable degree of uncertainty surrounding this cross at the moment. But a major determinant of the movement for this week would be conditions affecting Yen, for it to rally or lose strength. Those conditions would also have impact on other JPY pairs.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

EURUSD went downwards last week, closing below the resistance line at 1.1250. There is a bearish bias on the market, and the support lines at 1.1150 and 1.1100 could be tested. The only thing that can make this happen is continuous stamina in USD as compared to EUR; for the latter would try to gain some stamina this week, against other pairs (please watch EURCAD, EURCHF and EURJPY). Any show of vulnerability in USD might effect a rally in the market.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bullish

Based on the expectation last week, this pair was able to continue its northward journey. Price moved north roughly by 160 pips, closing slightly above the support level at 0.9900. There is one threat to the existing bullish outlook – the possibility of a rally in CHF. CHF might rally this week, which would affect CHF pairs, and as such, USDCHF would face some difficulties in journeying further upwards. For the pair to go upwards, USD must showcase more stamina that it has at the present.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Neutral

Last week, GBP gained strength versus other currencies as expected, and surprisingly against USD. GBPUSD went upwards by over 300 pips, reached the distribution territory at 1.4650, where the buying pressure was truncated. Further bullish movement would have resulted in a clean Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, but as bears performed a check on the bullish movement, price got corrected by 140 pips, thereby forcing the market back into a neutral territory. There would be mixed signals in the market this week, since GBP would be strong versus some currencies, while weak versus some currencies. In case of GBPUSD, further rally is possible.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bullish

This market went upward more than 170 pips last week, getting to the supply level at 110.50. There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, and price might go further upwards this week, reaching the supply levels at 111.00, 111.50, and 112.00. There are demand levels at 109.00 and 109.50, which should resist bears’ machinations. The bullish outlook would make sense as long as price does not go below those demand levels.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Neutral

The EUR/JPY simply moved sideways last week, consolidating between the demand zone at 123.00 and the supply zone at 124.00. Possibility of a breakout is very strong this week, as price may assume a serious trending mode. However, when a breakout does occur, it could be in favor of bulls. Price might target the supply levels at 125.00 and 126.00; plus bullish effort would also be witnessed on certain other JPY pairs, like CHFJPY.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“When a trader sees the market as it really is, rather than what they want to see, the act of trading becomes more relaxed and they become more confident and successful. Does this sound like the type of experience you want trading to be?” – Rebecca Price (Van Tharp Institute)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

Last week, EURUSD went downwards 110 pips, just as it was projected. There is a bearish signal in the market, which would cause its weakness to hold out, as long as USD is stronger than EUR. The pair would continue trudging south this week, unless USD shows any signs of vulnerability. This means that EURUSD could rally in case USD shows any signs of weakness. EUR might also experience some gains against certain currencies.

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bullish

This pair trended sideways last week, and moved slightly higher on Friday. There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, coupled with a possibility of testing the resistance levels at 0.9950 and 1.0000 (a level of parity of USD with CHF). However, it is unlikely that the price would ever go above the resistance level at 1.0000, because a probable threat from CHF remains. CHF might gain strength versus certain majors – which could also affect USDCHF.

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

Cable moved upwards 200 pips, testing the distribution territory at 1.4700 on May 25. Price was unable to stay above that distribution territory, since bears fought successfully to halt further rally, effecting an 80-pip correction. This week, the probability of Cable rallying further is higher than the probability of it going south significantly. The outlook on the market is bullish, though constant presence of disgruntled bears is a threat.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Neutral

This market was caught in an equilibrium phase throughout last week, with no bullish or bearish victory. Nonetheless, a closer examination reveals that bulls are still willing to push price northward; and they would gladly do so when conditions become favorable to them. In case bulls win, a bullish breakout to the supply levels at 111.00 and 111.50 might be witnessed. The possibility of a northward breakout would be in place as long as price does not go below the demand levels at 108.50 and 108.00.

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Neutral

This currency trading instrument has been going sideways for 2 weeks. The sideways phase would be in force until price crosses below the demand zone at 121.50, or above the supply zone at 125.50. Those demand and supply zones are strong, and unless price overcomes one of them, this sideways movement would remain. The longer the sideways movement is in place, the more imminent a breakout is (and the more directional the breakout would be when it occurs).

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“The big dogs are making an average profit over lots of occurrences utilizing modern technology and the plethora of ways that they can trade. Even so, the little guys with smaller sized accounts can complete with them and, in many cases, outperform them. That’s because they are small and don’t have liquidity issues or regulatory restraints.” – Phil Newton (Source: Trade2win)

    • #EURUSD #ANALYSIS #Forex #followme #socialtrading The EUR/USD pair fails to hold on to recovery gains as it trades near 1.1070 ahead of the European session on Wednesday.   The US #IndustrialProduction and #CapacityUtilization failed to please the #USD buyers as better than forecast prints of the ZEW Economic Sentiment for Germany and the Eurozone gained major attention. Also adding to the pair’s strength was the market’s risk recovery after Saudi Arabian diplomats showed readiness to overcome the recent damages due to drone attack within few weeks. Furthermore, news of the New York #Fed injecting funds through repo market and trade-positive headlines concerning the US, China and Japan also tamed the earlier #risk-off momentum.   #Traders have been #cautious since the start of Wednesday with eyes on the US #FederalReserve’s monetary policy meeting announcements up from 18:00 GMT. However, fresh trade/political headlines help extend the latest risk-on. As a result, Asian stocks report gains and the US 10-year Treasury yield remain around 1.80% by the press time.   Considering the high probability of the US Federal Reserve’s 0.25% Fed #rate, investors will be less surprised unless the US central bank offers less/more or no rate change. As a result, details of the quarterly economic forecast, press conference by the Fed Chairman #Powell and Fed’s Monetary Policy Statement will be the key to predict near-term market moves. The European Central Bank (#ECB) has recently shown its dovish bias and hence any hawkish statement from the Federal Open Market Committee (#FOMC) could be harmful to the pair’s latest recovery.   On the economic calendar, final reading of August month Consumer Price Index (CPI) from the Eurozone and the US housing market numbers could offer intermediate moves ahead of the Fed decision.   #TechnicalAnalysis Not only a falling trend-line since late-June, at 1.1090, but the 100-day exponential moving average (EMA) level of 1.1167 also could restrict pair’s near-term upside, which in-turn highlights 1.1100 and recent low surrounding 1.0925 as key supports.
