Since NZD/CAD is trading at a record high so there is no obvious resistance level for the pair. 95 cents is a psychologically significant level that could stall gains and above that price point, the rally could meet resistance at every big figure. If NZD/CAD starts to turn lower, 94 cents will be the first level of support followed by the January high of 0.9285.

CAD/JPY is obviously weak. The previous 1 year low of 90.78 was set in February and tested in early March. If this level is broken in a meaningful way, there is no major support until 90. Should CAD/JPY recover, the first level of resistance will be around 92.25 with a more significant resistance level at 94.

The EUR/AUD has downside support at the 1.4775 level but if that does not hold then 1.4500 could come into view. Meanwhile 1.5000 caps the upside, but a break above that figure could take the pair towards 1.5200 as the strong bottom develops.

Fundamentals

Ever since bottoming out below 1.2150 EUR/CHF has slowly climbed back the crisis in Crimea faded off the front pages. The ease in risk aversion has certainly helped the pair, but it may now face a new hurdle as traders begin to price in the prospect of ECB easing. The latest rumors to swirl around were that the ECB has modeled a possible 1 Trillion euros worth of QE, although no official has confirmed this story and so far the central bank remains stationary as to its policy intentions. Next week the calendar is relatively quiet, but if the market continues to focus on possible ECB easing then the EUR/CHF pair is clearly stalling at the 1.2250 may turn and begin to test the recent lows set earlier this month.

Technicals

The 1.2250 level remains critical to any near term breakouts for the pair as it appears to have made a double top at those levels. The break above however could open a run towards the 1.2350 target while a failure cold lead to a retest at 1.2150

Taking a look at the daily chart of AUD/JPY, 95 is clearly a significant short term support level for the pair. However if this level is broken, 94.25 becomes the more significant level because this was a former resistance point. Resistance on the other hand is at the April high of 96.50.

Technically EUR/GBP enjoys triple bottom support at the 8150 level and further support at 8100, but a break through those levels opens up the prospect of a move towards the key 8000 figure, while only a move above 8250 relives the downside bias.

The recent rally in GBP/NZD found resistance right at the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of the year to date highs and lows. With today’s reaction to the RBNZ rate decision, the currency pair retreated further. There is no major support until 1.9400, the 23.6% Fib retracement of the same move, which is also area where the currency pair found support in mid-March. We expect this level to be tested especially if UK retail sales miss.

On a technical basis, EUR/GBP has strong triple bottom support at 8200 but a break of the 8150 level could open the path to a move towards the key 8000 figure. Meanwhile upside looks contained by the 8250-8300 range.

Technically the failure ahead of the the key 1.0900-1.1100 level bodes badly for AUD/NZD longs and a breakdown below 1.0700 could open the path towards a test of recent swing lows at the 1.0500 level.

While 1.50 is a psychologically significant resistance level in EUR/AUD, the real level for the currency pair to break is the April high of 1.5022. Above this point there is no major resistance until 1.52. Should the upside momentum in EUR/AUD fade and the currency starts to trend lower, support will be found at the April low of 1.4655.

The NZD/USD chart highlights the currency pair’s move after recent dairy auctions. On a technical basis, higher lows and higher highs signal strength for the currency but 87 and 8750 are significant resistance levels for NZD/USD. If both levels are broken it should be clear sailing up to 8845 but if NZD/USD fails below 87 cents, a drop to 86 becomes likely.

Technically EUR/JPY has triple bottom support at the 140.00 level and a break there opens the run to 137.00 and possibly a full unwind towards the 135.00 level. Only a break above 142.50 relies the negative bias and put the pair on an upward trajectory.

Although GBP/USD retraced off its 1.70 high, as long as it holds above 1.6760, the uptrend remains intact. If it breaks below 1.6760, there is no major support until 1.6600. On the upside, if GBP/USD clears 1.70, there is minor resistance at the 2009 high of 1.7043 and nothing beyond that until 1.75.

The GBP/CHF pair faces key resistance at the 1.5000 level, but a break above opens the prospect of a run towards recent highs at 1.5100 and then further to 1.5300. The downside is supported by the 1.4800 and 1.4700 levels where there is a firm base.

Taking a look at the daily chart of AUD/JPY, the currency pair is closing in on its 1 month low of 94.25. If this level is broken, there is no major support until the 38.2% Fib retracement of the 2011 to 2013 rally near 92.65. If AUD/JPY holds 94.25 and rises back above 95.35, the next stop could be its May high of 96.

With EUR/GBP trading at 16-month lows, we have to turn to the monthly chart for support. The 23.6% Fibonacci retracement of the 2011 to 2012 decline sits right at the 2010 swing low at 0.8068. If EUR/GBP breaks through this level, there is no major support until 80 cents and even this level could give way as more significant support sits at 0.7750. As for resistance, rallies should be limited to 0.8265 for the time being.

Taking a look at the daily chart of EUR/CAD, the currency pair has just broken below the 50% Fibonacci retracement of the massive 2008 to 2012 decline. While this level is significant, if EUR/CAD also clears its Jan 20th swing low at 1.4788, then there is no support for the currency pair until 1.4600. Resistance is up at 1.50 so EUR/CAD would need to rise back above this level to negate the downtrend. There is also a fairly clear head and shoulders pattern that point to further losses for EUR/CAD

Taking a look at the daily chart of AUD/JPY, the currency pair has risen out of the sell zone according to our Double Bollinger Bands. While this signals a potential turn in the currency pair, there is stiff resistance below 95.25. If AUD/JPY drops back below 94, the currency pair could take a stab at its 1 month low near 93.

A funny thing has happened to the AUD/NZD pair. What looked like the easiest one way trip to the downside has now turned into a reversal trade. Although interest rates in New Zealand are supposed to rise while rates in Australia will remain stationary at best, the pair has stubbornly climbed higher over the past week and is now on the verge of piercing the key 1.0900 level. What has turned the price action around has been a noticeable decline in business sentiment in New Zealand spurred by dropping prices for milk - the country's principal export. The latest ANZ Business sentiment survey printed at 53.5 a whopping decline of more than 10 points from the period prior when it recorded a value of 64.8. The markets are now worried that the sudden collapse in confidence may make the RBNZ hold off on any further rate hike for the time being. That sentiment has pushed the kiwi below the key 8500 level and may now send it lower towards 8400. Meanwhile in Australia the conditions appear to have stabilized and if tonight's Private Capital Expenditure numbers surprise to the upside the AUD/NZD cross could push through the 1.0900 figure.

EUR/JPY has been in a drift for the past several weeks as the pressure from euro and tepid price action in USD/JPY have pushed the pair well below the 140.00 figure. Today however the pair appears to have found a modicum of support as euro essentially stabilized at 1.3600 and USD/JPY found buyers at 101.50. Although the woes in the EZ are well known and the ECB is very likely to cut rates at the next meeting in June, most of the downside news in the euro appears to be priced. Meanwhile the relentless decline in US rates which has been the main culprit for USD/JPY's decline has likely runs its course as well. US 10 year yields have slipped below the 2.50% barrier but now look like they have found some buyers ahead of the 2.40% level. The bonds are obsessed with US deflation that's why tomorrow's US Personal Income and Spending may be key to the markets. If the number print better than expected then they could signal that US economic growth is translating into gains in income which should help rally US yields and USD/JPY thus providing a lift to EUR/JPY back towards the 140.00 level.

 

Technicals

EUR/JPY has deep support around the 136.00 level but the buying ahead of the 138.00 figure suggest that the pair may be carving out a higher low which would be a bullish formation that could signal a turn back towards 140.00. A break of 137.00 however would suggest a test of the 136.00 support.

Cable has been in a correction mode for the better part of the week as markets are beginning to question the prospect of early BOE rate hikes despite the booming UK economy. One nagging issue is the possibility of secession of Scotland which could wreak havoc with BoE's well laid plans. Another growing concern is the weakening UK housing market which reduces the need for BoE to act sooner rather than later. This week we get a slew of UK PMI data and although no one anticipates contractionary readings, the strong prospect of slowdown in activity could only reinforce the negative sentiment toward sterling. On the other hand the Aussie has been relatively robust holding bid above the 9200 level. This week the market will also get a glimpse of a smattering of Australian data and its provides steady results the sentiment towards Aussie will only strengthen setting up the prospect of further downside action on GBP/AUD.

 

 

Technicals

Technically GBP/AUD is approaching key support at the 1.7800 level as its corrective action accelerates. A move through 1.7800 opens the prospect of test of double bottom and a run through 1.7700 which would break the support and target the pair towards the 1.7500 figure

    • havent done any crypto withdrawals or deposits, maybe support can answer that... Im more if a traditional trader, straight up regular connection tbh. 
    • Date : 19th August 2019. Events to Look Out for This Week. Trade worries remain and are expected to keep flip-flopping between risk-off and risk-back-on sentiment. Hopes for more central bank stimulus vies with fears that a number of major economies are simultaneously heading for recession, with a number of developing-world economies with high Dollar debt levels particularly exposed to the shifting financial cycle. Given these fears, further conciliatory remarks are likely from both China and the US with regard to their trade spat. Nevertheless, next week the economic calendar also focuses on the PMI releases globally.Monday – 19 August 2019   Consumer Price Index and Core (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area CPI for July is expected to hold at 1.1%y/y in the final July reading from 1.3%y/y in June. Energy price inflation was clearly largely to blame and the core rate fell back to just 0.9%y/y from 1.1%y/y in the previous month. The core is anticipated to remain unchanged as well. With growth slowing down and the improvement on the labour market starting to fizzle out, chances are that inflation will continue to undershoot the ECB’s target range, thus adding to arguments for a comprehensive easing package in September. Tuesday – 20 August 2019   Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes (AUD, GMT 01:30) – The RBA left rates on hold in its last meeting, after back-to-back rate cuts in June and July, which put the cash rate at a record low of 1.00%, while Governor Lowe said that more easing measures could be needed. Minutes are expected to shed further light regarding future easing stance. Manufacturing Sales (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Manufacturing sales are anticipated to grow 2.0% in June after a 1.6% rebound in shipment values was revealed during May and following a 0.4% decline in April. The surge in transport equipment sales is consistent with the improving economy and as such fits with the BoC’s overall view that the economy is improving after temporary weakness in Q4/Q1. Wednesday – 21 August 2019   Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canada’s CPI did not challenge the outlook for steady BoC policy this year. CPI slowed to a 2.0% y/y pace in June from the lofty 2.4% y/y clip in May. Inflation remains around the 2 percent target, with some recent upward pressure from higher food and automobile prices. Core measures of inflation are also close to 2 percent. Even though CPI inflation will likely dip this year because of the dynamics of gasoline prices and some other temporary factors, the annual and monthly numbers for July are expected to remain steady. As slack in the economy is absorbed and these temporary effects wane, inflation is expected to return sustainably to 2 percent by mid-2020. FOMC Minutes (USD, GMT 18:00) – The FOMC minutes, similar to the ECB Reports, provide an assessment as regards the views of the Fed’s policymakers about the interest-setter’s future stance and are usually a cause for FX turbulence. Thursday – 22 August 2019   Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 1 Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30-08:00) – July PMI readings highlighted manufacturing weakness. This picture is likely to be seen again in the preliminary readings for August, as Manufacturing PMI has been forecast at 46.3 from 46.5 last month, still down from 47.6 in June, and indicates a deepening recession in a sector that has been hit very hard by global trade tensions and no-deal Brexit risks. Meanwhile Services PMI is expected to fall to 52.7 from 53.2. Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing are expected to grow in August, to 51.0 from 50.4, as Services PMIs are likely to fall to 51.7 from 53. New Zealand Retail Sales (NZD, GMT 22:45) – Usually considered an index of consumer confidence and overall consumption in the economy, higher retail sales point to higher consumption and hence higher economic growth which is good for the currency. Friday- 23 August 2019   Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 2 Retail Sales ex Autos (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Retail sales are expected to have decreased in Canada, with consensus forecasts suggesting a -0.5% m/m decline should be registered in June and an unchanged ex-autos component at 0.3%. In May, Retail sales were disappointing, falling 0.1% for total sales and declining 0.3% for the ex-autos component. The decline in sales was driven by a 2.0% tumble in food and beverage stores. The report casts some doubt on the resiliency of the consumer sector to the ongoing parade of worrisome geopolitical and trade developments. Always trade with strict risk management.

    • AUDUSD Market Dragged Lower on Bears Dominance   AUDUSD Price Analysis – August 15 The bears were in full control moving the market lower in the prior session, although in the present session we see the pair found buyers around the level at 0.6748 for the 4th day in a row while the pairs bear dominance is evident falling to lowest close since the beginning of the year.   Key Levels Resistance Levels: 0.7297, 0.7207, 0.7085 Support Levels: 0.6748, 0.6676, 0.6620   AUDUSD long term Trend: Bearish In the bigger picture of the daily time frame, the decline from the level at 0.7207 (high) is seen as resuming the long term downtrend from 0.7297 (February high). Firm break of the level at 0.6876 (low) should confirm this bearish view.   On observation, further fall may be seen to the level at 0.6620 (low) next. On the upside, the break of the level at 0.7085 resistance is needed to be the first sign of medium-term bottoming. Otherwise, outlook will remain bearish even in case of a strong rebound.     AUDUSD short term Trend: Ranging On the flip side of the 4-hour chart, the AUDUSD is staying in consolidation from the level at 0.6676 and it’s intraday bias remains neutral first. On the upside, the break of the level at 0.6827 will extend the rebound.   But upside should be limited below the level at 0.6909 support turned resistance to bring fall resumption. On the downside, the break of the level at 0.6676 may target 100% projections from the level at 0.7085 to 0.6827 from 0.7085 at 0.6620 level reflecting on the daily chart.
    • EURJPY Approached Recent Swing Lows, Likely to Breach the Low of the Year on the Level at 117.50   EURJPY Price Analysis – August 16   The pair depreciated again in value against the Japanese Yen. The currency pair during the mid-week breached both the upper and lower horizontal lines on the moving average 5 and 13 while completing another lap on the low in today’s session towards the low level at 117.50.     Key Levels   Resistance Levels: 123.01, 121.40, 119.91   Support Levels: 117.50, 117.00, 114.84   EURJPY Long term Trend: Bearish The Daily time frame displays the EURJPY at the low, showing the pair is also testing a swing area on the level at the 117.50 to the level at 118.16 below the moving average 5 areas. The price attempted to dip below the area on August 12 to the low for the year on the level at 117.50, but could not keep the momentum going. The swing area was reestablished as support on August 13 and again today   However, buyers are trying to lean against the low level at 117.50, on the retest and hoping for a quick bounce. The trend is showing a bearish outlook in the medium and long term.   EURJPY Short term Trend: Ranging On its Intraday, the bias in EURJPY remains neutral for the moment. With the level of 119.91 minor resistance intact, further decline is in favor. Although a break of the level at 117.50 will resume a large downtrend to the level at 114.84 support next.   However, on the break of 119.91 resistance will indicate short term bottoming. A stronger rebound should be seen to the horizontal resistance line now at 121.40.
    • USDCHF Bounces Off Lower Prices On Correction.   USDCHF bounces off lower prices on correction the past week. This has opened the door for more gain in the new week. Resistance resides at the 0.9800 level. Above here, resistance lies at the 0.9850 level and then the 0.9900 level. Further out, resistance comes in at the 0.9950 level. On the downside, support is seen at the 0.9750 level with a turn below here opening the door for more decline towards the 0.9700 level. And then the 0.9650 level. Further down, support resides at the 0.9600 level. All in all, USDCHF remains biased to the upside on further corrective strength.
