Negative divergence points to a short term pullback on 5th wave

attachment.php?attachmentid=32770&stc=1&d=1352683618

 

Hi Auto trader,

Could you please expand on this divergence theory that you are using. I would be really interested to know how it works. Have you seen good results with this theory? If yes, approximately what percentage?

Thanks

TradeCuts.

Lets look back to USDCAD and remember that last week we saw a triangle/bullish flag, a bearish divergence, AND a resistance level approaching. Here we are today dealing with those sings and signals. From 1.11 the price has fallen sharply and given me confirmation that my signals and indicators (tho they're delayed) did not steer me in the wrong direction.

Crude oil remains Canada's biggest dollar export, and this will continue, but the dollar amount may be reduced because of the global oil glut. The Canadian economy is much more than oil or commodities, but the energy sector has the biggest impact on the price of the loonie. The question is where might the loonie be trading if WTI crude were tp sell down into the seventies.

Washington special interests once more prevailed this week when they denied passage of the proposed Canadian Keystone XL pipeline. It has now been six years since initially proposed, and for six years the US government has failed to give Canadian permission to construct this pipeline. As proposed it would ship about 800,000 barrels of oil per day from Alberta Canada to Cushing Oklahoma, and subsequently to the US Gulf.

 

Failure to pass the bill in the US Senate was initially viewed as bearish news for the loonie, but the sell off did not last long. Passage was a long shot at best in the current lame duck session, so traders should not be surprised at the out come.

While oil consumers get a bonus, the producers income takes a hit. Recently Canada had been producing and exporting over 3 millions barrels of oil per day to the US. A 50% reduction will negatively affect the Canadian balance of trade and slow their economy as investment and employment in the oil patch slows. Their currency, in part because of the energy price, has been depreciating.

 

We have two apparent mega trends, demand for safe haven pounds and a disdain for the Canadian Dollar. Since November the GBPCAD has soared from 1.75 to 1.9250. This is a big move, but if we look at a monthly chart the pound may be breaking out, with blue sky above, and perhaps as much as another 1000 pips or more if the fundamental trends continue.

USDCAD is in a consolidation figure on H4. The fact it broke down H4 SMA200 on its second attempt within that consolidation figure just add to the confusion. I will wait until it exits that triangle.

Technically the pair is at the bottom of its 1.2800-1.2400 range and a sharp break below would suggest a distribution pattern. But if the range holds it may simply be a consolidation in what could still be a long term up trend.

The Canadian dollar continues to gain ground, and has inched higher in the Thursday session. Currently, USD/CAD is trading at 1.2891, down 0.10% on the day. On the release front, there are no Canadian data releases. In the US, unemployment claims rose to 229 thousand, higher than the forecast of 225 thousand. On Friday, the US releases durable goods and housing reports.

It’s been a good week for the Canadian dollar, which has gained 1.6 percent against the greenback. This has erased most of last week’s losses. There has been some good news on the NAFTA front, as the US appears to have softened its rigid negotiation position.

On the upside, resistance comes in at 1.1600 level with a cut through here opening the door for more upside towards the 1.1650 level. Further up, resistance lies at the 1.1700 level where a break will expose the 1.1750 level. Conversely, support lies at the 1.1500 level where a violation will aim at the 1.1450 level. A break of here will aim at the 1.1400 level. Below here will open the door for more weakness towards the 1.1350. All in all, EURUSD faces further downside pressure

      MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 23rd January 2019.



      FX News Today 10-year Treasury yields are down from overnight highs, but still up 0.7 bp at 2.746%, and 10-year JGB yields climbed 0.8 bp to -0.004%. Stock markets remained cautious during the Asian session. The Bank of Japan held policy steady, as expected, while further reducing its outlook for inflation. The resulting weakness in the Yen didn’t help stock markets and Topix and Nikkei dropped -0.60% and -0.14% respectively. The Hang Seng is also down -0.04%, despite mainland China markets initially moving higher as China’s central bank pumped liquidity into the banking system once again. Still, the measures are also a sign that officials are nervous about the slowdown in the economy and CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp are down -0.24% and -0.13%. The bank offered around 258 bln Yuan (USD 38 bln) to banks through its medium term lending tool. Markets continue to question the progress in the US-Sino trade talks, even though White House adviser Lawrence Kudlow said that the trade talks are still on and the story about cancelled preparatory meetings was “not true, there was never any meeting. We are moving toward negotiations.” The negotiations next week will be “very, very important” and “determinative”. Meanwhile, there are the first signs of a possible way out of the US government shutdown. Markets remain easily spooked, but appear to have already priced in a lot of risk last year and US stock futures are moving higher after yesterday’s sell off. Oil prices are trading at USD 53.27 per barrel. Charts of the Day

      Main Macro Events Today Canadian Retail Sales – After Wholesale Sales plummeted yesterday, Canadian Retail Sales are expected to have also declined by 0.4% m/m, with core Retail Sales (ex autos) expected to have declined by 0.6%.

    • USDJPY Eyes The 109.88 Resistance Zone And Beyond USDJPY eyes the 109.88 resistance zone beyond as it looks to resume its upside pressure. On the upside, resistance comes in at 110.00 level. A turn above here will turn attention to the 110.50 level. Further out, we expect a possible move towards the 111.00 level if the earlier resistance is invalidated out. The next resistance resides at the 111.50. Its daily RSI is bullish and pointing higher suggesting further strength. On the downside, support comes in at the 109.50 level where a break will target the 109.00 level. Below that level will turn focus to the 108.50 level and then lower the 108.00 level. On the whole, USDJPY faces further upside pressure on corrective recovery.
