EURNZDH430.png


Overview:


Our last analysis, EUR/NZD has been trading downwards. As we expected, the price tested the level of 1.6215 in an ultra high volume (selling climax). Our Fibonacci expansion 161.8% at the price of 1.6300 held successful, which is a sign that buying looks risky. According to the 4H time frame, EUR/NZD is in a bearish corrective phase. I have placed Fibonacci retracement to find support levels and I got Fibonacci retracement 38.2% at the price of 1.6165 and Fibonacci retracement 61.8% at the price of 1.5900. Anyway, to confirm further bullish movement, the price needs to break the level of 1.6300 in a high volume and with healthy price action.

Elliott wave analysis of EUR/NZD for September 30 - 2014

2014-09-30-EURNZD-8H.png


Today's support and resistance levels:


R3: 1.6338


R2: 1.6309


R1: 1.6266


Current spot: 1.6247


S1: 1.6217


S2: 1.6190


S3: 1.6155


Technical summary:


The correction from the 1.6446 high has been deeper than expected and we could see a move slightly lower to 1.6190 and even 1.6155, but this support should be able to protect the downside for the next rally above 1.6337 confirming the next rally higher towards 1.6803 and higher. Longer term we are looking for much higher levels, but need to allow for this correction to unfold first.


Trading recommendation:


We are long in EUR from 1.5826 with stop place at 1.6100. If you are not long in EUR yet, then buy near 1.6190 with the same stop at 1.6100.

#USDX Technical analysis for September 30, 2014

The Dollar index made a short-term pull back towards 85.50 as expected yesterday and did not break lower. The trend remains bullish as long as we trade above yesterday's lows and we should expect new highs. If support is broken a bigger downward correction will start.

Red line = resistance


Blue line= support


Green line = price channel


At 85.50 we find the important short-term support. If this support is broken we should expect the Dollar index to break lower towards 85. The trend is neutral in the 30-minute chart and we should wait for a breakout signal above 85.66 or below 85.47 before opening a position.

Green line = price channel


Red line = resistance


The longer-term trend remains fully bullish. According to the ichimoku cloud indicators trend remains fully bullish. Only if we see a change in the slope of the tenkan-sen and kijun-sen we should worrying for a bigger trend reversal. Important support is at 85.50 area. If broken, a deeper correction will start towards 85 or even 84.50. On the other hand, we could see one more new high at least if we break and close the day above 85.66.

Gold Technical analysis for September 30, 2014

Gold price remains unable to make a strong bounce. Although price remains above critical short-term support at $1,207, the sideways move will soon be over with more chances favoring the bearish scenario for a push lower towards $1,180. Short-term trend is neutral while intermediate- and long-term trend remain bearish.


goldh4.jpg

Blue line= support


Green line = price channel


Gold price remains inside the downward sloping channel and below the Ichimoku cloud. The resistance at $1,220-30 remains intact and so does the support at $1.212 and $1,207. Today or the latest tomorrow I expect Gold price to make a break out. If it breaks support I will prefer short positions targeting $1,180. If resistance breaks, I will remain neutral as this would be a countertrend bounce. I would prefer to wait for the bounce towards $1,240-50 to complete before selling again.


gold.jpg

Blue line = support


Red line = resistance


In the 30-minute chart as shown above, the short-term trend line that was upward sloping has been broken. Price is below the Ichimoku cloud and as long as support at $1,212 holds, bulls still have a chance of a break out towards $1,240. I remain longer-term bearish and I believe that short-term traders should only look for selling opportunities and signals.

Daily analysis of major pairs for September 30, 2014

EUR/USD: This is a bearish market. With more bearish journey, the price could stay below the resistance line at 1.2750, while targeting the support line at 1.2600. The resistance lines at 1.2750 and 1.2800 should serve as barriers against bullish attempts that may happen long the way.


1.png

USD/CHF: The strength in the Greenback is one of the reasons why this pair is going upwards. There is a clean Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the chart, brought about by the perpetual weakness in the EUR/USD and the perceived strength in the Greenback. Since the middle of July 2014, the market has moved upwards by close to 600 pips, and this would continue as long as the Greenback is strong. Any sudden weakness in the Greenback can enable the price to be pulled back towards the support levels at 0.9450 and 0.9400 respectively.


2.png

GBP/USD: The Forex markets are now at critical points. For instance, the bias on the Cable is bearish but there is a need for the price to go below the accumulation territory at 1.6200 so that the bias could be stronger. On the other hand, a rally above the distribution territory at 1.6350 would mean the end of the bearish bias.


3.png

USD/JPY: This is a bullish market as well and the pair is currently trading above the demand level at 109.00. There is a possibility that the price could reach the supply level at 110.00, but should there be a sudden stamina in the Yen, the price could tumble.


4.png

EUR/JPY: This cross is also making some bullish attempts, following the bearish run that happened on it last week. With a continuation of the southward movement, the price could break below the demand zone at 138.50, going towards another demand zone at 138.00.

USDJPYMonthly.png


The stronger US data have dominated in the recent weeks. The pair is trading at 109.41 near the resistance level of 110.66. Today the US data will provide enough support to breach the near resistance for further increase towards 112 and 114.70 in the near term. Japan will release key data: retail sales, household spending and prelim industrial production. On the higher side, 114.70 is the 80.0 fib level from 124 levels in June 2007 to 75.57 in October 2011. The pair has support at 106.50 200MSma on a closing basis. On the US dollar front, as we recommended earlier, in case of a breach above the $85 mark, the yen is expected to tick down towards 114, 118, 120, and 123 in the longer time frames. We mentioned the same probability in December 2013 when this pair was trading around 99). Again, we recommended 101 levels on July 11, 2014. This pair is on a verge of another breakout in the monthly chart. Today is the last trading day in this month and the quarter. Today's closing will give further direction.


A close above the trend line adds a further bullish sign towards 120-123- pending


USDJPYH4.png

For an intraday view, the pair is facing strong resistance at 35DEMA. We recommend buying above 109.50. The pair has support at 109.30, 109.10 and 109. We expect some weakness only below 109 towards 108.50 and 108.25. Use a dip to buy.

Daily analysis of USDX for September 30, 2014

The USDX continues to show great strength in the current bullish trend in the H4 chart. This strength is because the USDX has found strong support at the bullish trend line there near the 85.50 level, which has helped this instrument consolidate in the current trend and so it is very likely that the USDX will try to go up to the level of 86.75, where another bullish trend line is.


USDXH4.png


H4 chart's resistance levels: 86.75 – 86.30


H4 chart's support levels: 85.06 - 84.52


In the H1 chart we see that USDX continues moving in a range, due to a bullish consolidation being carried out above the support level of 85.49. If the USDX gets away from that dominated by bearish force area, it would be expected to rise to the resistance level of 85.95 in the short term. The USDX is still holding above the 200-day moving average on this chart.


USDXH1.png

H1 chart's resistance levels: 85.73 - 85.95


H1 chart's support levels: 85.49 - 85.27


Trading recommendations for today: Based on the H1 chart, place buy (long) orders only if the USD Index breaks with a bullish candlestick; the resistance level is at 85.27, take profit is at 85.49, and stop loss is at 85.03.

Daily analysis of GBP/USD for September 30, 2014

At the H4 chart, GBP/USD has been in a precipitous drop from the 200 SMA, where the pair performed a pullback, forming various patterns of a bearish fall to the support level of 1.6247. A breakout below this level could lead the GBP/USD to touch the support level of 1.6051 in the medium term.


GBPUSDH4.png


H4 chart's resistance levels: 1.6435 - 1.6464


H4 chart's support levels: 1.6247 - 1.6051


However, we must stress the bearish consolidation that is taking the GBP/USD on the H1 chart, because this pair still remains below the 200 SMA. However, the GBP/USD had performed a rebound on the support level of 1.6216, but hours later, the pair performed a pullback near the level of 1.6265; next bearish target for this pair is the support level of 1.6218. The MACD indicator is trying to show overbought levels.

Technical analysis of AUD/USD for September 30, 2014

Overview :



  • The AUD/USD pair had fallen from the level of 0.8920, and the decline was extended further to as low as 0.8720 yesterday; furthermore, the price has been below 23.6% of Fibonacci retracement levels in the daily chart. Additionally, it should be noted that the price has formed strong resistance at the 0.8920 level and minor resistance at 0.8780. Moreover, this strong level has still been trapped between 23.6% of Fibonacci retracement levels and 00% in the daily chart. As it is known, history usually repeats itself at a certain level. So it will be of the wisdom to use historic quotes to determine future prices; hence, it is probably that the market will show bearish signs again in order to indicate a bearish opportunity at the level of 0.8780 with targets towards the strongest support around the 0.8659 level. Equally important, the market will form a range between two important levels of 0.8720 and 0.8660, so the range will be 80 pips precisely on the last day of September. Also, it should be noted that the double bottom will set at the level of 0.8659.

Technical analysis of USD/CHF for September 30, 2014

usdchfdaily.png

Overview :



  • The price of USD/CHF indicates a bullish market on the last day of September. The uptrend started rising from the level of 0.9466 and reached 0.9500. So, the pair is going to move between 0.9470 and 0.9592 during coming hours. Moreover, the price has still been above the support level of 0.9466 since yesterday. Also, it is worthy of note that these levels are coinciding between 50% and 61.8% of Fibonacci retracement levels in the weekly chart.


The weekly chart :


usdchfweekly.png



  • On the other hand, the pair has already formed strong resistance at the level of 0.9592. So now it is approaching it in order to test it. Therefore, the Swissy's downside momentum is rather convincing and the structure of the fall does not look corrective. In order to indicate a bearish opportunity below 0.9592 (but in the short term). Thus, it will be a good sign to sell below 0.9592 with the first target of 0.9540. It will call for downtrend continuing falling towards 0.9460 to try to break the weekly support on the 30th of September 2014.


Intraday Key Levels :



  • Resistance 3:0.9575

  • Resistance 2:0.9553

  • Resistance 1:0.9532

  • Pivot point:0.9510

  • Support 1:0.9489

  • Support 2:0.9467

  • Support 3:0.9446

GBP/USD intraday technical levels and trading recommendations for September 29, 2014

gbodaily.jpggbp4h.jpg


Overview:


On July 15, extensive bearish impulse was initiated. Since then, the GBP/USD pair has been downtrending limited by the depicted downtrend line.


Two bearish impulses were initiated around 1.7180 and 1.6630 corresponding to the downtrend line.


The price level of 1.6140 constituted a prominent weekly support to meet the pair. Bullish rejection was witnessed in the recent daily candlesticks. This led to a previous bullish weekly closure ( above the weekly support level around 1.6250 ).


Retracement towards the price zone of 1.6350-1.6400 took place as expected where a new bearish impulse is expected to be applied.


This price zone corresponds to the upper limit of the depicted channels as well as Fibonacci level of the recent bearish impulse between 1.7180 and 1.6060.


Trading recommendations:


Based on the previous data, the market offered a valid SELL opportunity around 1.6460 during last week's consolidations.


This short position remains valid as long as the bears keep defending price zone of 1.6310-1.6400 ( 23.6% Fibonacci level and previous top).


Bearish targets are located around 1.6160 and 1.6080.

Intraday technical levels and trading recommendations on EUR/USD for September 29, 2014

eurrusddailly.jpg


Around price zone of 1.3800-1.3880 (dotted on the chart), the market paused the previous bullish momentum, thus initiating the current downtrend within the depicted bearish channel.


Several congestion zones were established around the price levels of 1.3515 and 1.3335 before further bearish decline could take place.


Two weeks ago, the pair showed bullish recovery around price level of 1.2860. However, the following bearish engulfing daily candlestick indicated severe weakness of the bulls.


This enhanced the bearish trend towards 1.2750 and 1.2680 as initial target levels.


Today's daily candlestick should be monitored for bullish rejection. The EUR/USD pair is currently testing the lower limit of the ongoing bearish channel. That's why, any signs of bullish reversal should indicate upcoming corrective movement towards 1.3060.


eurusd4hh.jpg


The current short-term bearish trend remains intact as long as bears keep defending the price zone around 1.2995 (the recent weekly high). Moreover, another descending high was established on Wednesday around 1.2920.


The bearish slide below 1.2820 invalidated the possibility of a bullish reversal. Thus, bearish decline towards 1.2750 and 1.2680 took place shortly after achieving the projection targets of the bearish flag pattern.


Careful watching of price action around the current price levels is essential to determine the next destination of the EUR/USD pair.


In case the bulls initiate a corrective movement around the lower limit of the channel being tested today, the first target levels to be visited should be located around 1.2940 and 1.3060.

Technical analysis of Silver for September 29, 2014


Technical outlook and chart setups:


Silver remains locked between $17.30 and $18.00 since a few days as seen here. The trend remains bearish with Silver clearly trading in the sell zone at the moment. A push below $17.30 levels would see further lows into $16.00. Immediate support remains at $17.30 (interim) while resistance is seen at $18.00 (interim), followed by $18.60/90 and above respectively. The metal needs to clear $18.00 at least, for bulls to regain control. Furthermore, a break above the sloping trend line, which is passing through $18.90 levels for now, would instill further confidence in the bullish setup.


Trading recommendations:


Remain flat for now.


Good luck!

Technical analysis of Gold for September 29, 2014


Technical outlook and chart setups:


Gold remains in a trading range between $1,00.00/05.00 and $1,230.00/40.00 for now. The metal is attempting to rally at the moment but a break above $1,240.00 would be imminent for bulls to remain in further control. On the flip side, a break below $1,206.00 would drag prices towards $1,180.00/85.00 at least. It is recommended to exit long positions taken last week and remain flat, awaiting a break on either side. Immediate support is at $1,206.00 (interim), followed by $1,180.00 and lower while resistance is seen at $1,230.00/40, followed by $1,275.00 and higher respectively.


Trading recommendations:


Exit long positions for now (remain conservative). Wait for a range break to enter again.

EUR/NZD analysis for September 29, 2014

EURNZDDaily29.png


EURNZDH429.png


Overview:


Our last analysis, EUR/NZD has been trading upwards. As we expected, the price tested the level of 1.6441 in an ultra high volume (buying climax). Our Fibonacci expansion 161.8% at the price of 1.6300 is on the test so be very careful when buying EUR/NZD at this stage. We can observe buying climax according to the 4H time frame, so we may see potential reaction from sellers (bearish correction) before any larger bullish continuation. Anyway, to confirm futher bullish movement, the price needs to break the level of 1.6300 in a high volume and with healthy price action.


Daily Fibonacci pivot levels :


Resistance levels:


R1: 1.6148


R2: 1.6176


R3: 1.6222


Support levels:


S1: 1.6056


S2: 1.6028


S3: 1.57982


Trading recommendations: Be careful when buying the EUR/NZD pair since we may see a bearish corrective phase

Gold : analysis for September 29, 2014

GOLDDaily29.png


GOLDH429.png


Overview:


Since our last analysis, gold has been trading downwards. As we expected, the price tested the level of 1,212.10. According to the 4H time frame, we can observe strong rejection again from our Fibonacci retracement 61.8% at the price of 1,229.00, which caused price to start with downward movement. According to previous price action, we got support level at the price of 1,208.00 (swing low like support). If the price breaks the level of 1,208.00 in a high volume, we may see potential testing the level of 1,194.00. According to the daily chart, we can observe indecision bar in a volume below average, so we need to wait for larger supply in an high volume to confirm futher bearish movement.


Daily pivot Fibonacci points:


Resistance levels:


R1: 1,218.84


R2: 1,219.50


R3: 1,220.57


Support levels


S1: 1,216.70


S2: 1,216.04


S3: 1,214.94


Trading recommendations: Buying still looks risky since we got strong rejection from our Fibonacci retracement 61.8%

#USDX Technical analysis for September 29, 2014

The Dollar index remains in a bullish trend. The up trend is very strong and is now looking parabolic. This means that bulls should be on high alert as a trend reversal will be very strong and swift. On the other hand, I do not prefer going against this trend.


usdx.jpg

Red line = resistance


The Dollar index remains in a bullish trend. Price is above the Ichimoku cloud and still inside the upward sloping channels. Resistance is at 85.80. A short-term pull back is justified towards 85.50. This is the short-term support level. Breaking below that level could push the index towards 85.


usdxd.jpg

The parabolic rise in the Dollar index is strong. It is prefered to stay neutral than trade against this strong up trend. However, bulls should also take their precautions as a pull back could bring the index as low as 84.40 in a very fast manner. Such parabolic rises also bring strong reversals, so it is prefered to raise stops in order to lock in profits. A normal correction would bring the index towards the 83.50 level. In conclusion, we remain fully bullish with our stops raised in order to protect profits. Betting against this strong trend is not advisable.

Gold Technical analysis for September 29, 2014

Gold price has held support at $1,207 on Friday and made a higher low at $1,212. Short-term trend is sideways and I prefer to stay neutral for now. My longer-term view remains bearish. My target remains at $1,000. We first need to break below $1,180. This will strengthen our bearish scenario.

Blue line = support


Green line = price channel


Gold price as shown above in the 4 hour chart remains in a bearish trend. Price is below the Ichimoku cloud and still inside the downward sloping green channel. However, price remains above the short-term support at $1,208. Breaking below that support will probably push Gold price towards $1,180. Breaking above $1,233 resistance could push Gold price towards $1,250-60.

Red line= resistance


Blue line = support


In the 30-minute chart, we see the higher low made on Friday and this could signal a move towards $1,225-30 where resistance is found. Gold price is forming a sideways triangle as long as it trades between $1,233 and $1,212. The triangle is getting narrower and we should soon expect a break out. I prefer to stay neutral and wait for the break out before opening a position. A longer-term trend remains bearish, so we should also keep in mind that opening a long position is against the larger trend.

Technical analysis of USD/CAD for September 29, 2014

General overview for 29/09/2014 09:00 CET

The market is developing in the anticipated way, still making higher highs as the impulsive wave progression has not been finished yet. The recent swing high at the level of 1.1177 has been labeled as wave -iii- top, so now this pair is in the corrective cycle wave -iv-. This means one more wave to the upside is still missing and when correction is done this wave will materialize. Please notice, that any violation of the level of 1.1126 will invalidate blue bullish impulsive count.


Support/Resistance:

1.1175 - Swing High

1.1148 - Intraday Support

1.1125 - Blue Impulsive Count Invalidation Line

1.1100 - Weekly Pivot

1.1082 - Red Impulsive Count Invalidation Line

1.1035 - WS1


Trading recommendations:

Swing traders and day traders should consider moving the trailing stop loss orders for all buy positions just below the level of 1.1125 in case the corrective cycle will be more complex and deeper in retracement.

Intraday trading recommendations for GBP/USD for September 29, 2014

GBPUSDWeekly.png


The cable has support at 200WEma. Consecutive 3 weeks the pair managed to close above 200Wema. This week we can expect further clear oneside direction in the near and short term. The cable has support at 1.6160, below this, 1.6050 and 1.60 is the strong support zone. A close below 1.60 only the short and medium term turns down. The trading pattern is framed between 1.60-1.66, a break either side will give further room for the rest of the year. On the down side, if it hits 1.60, it can fall to 1.59, 1.5850 and 1.5720 levels. The cable is making a broadening tip in the weekly chart at 1.64. It closed below the descending trend line and hit the ascending trend line. These factors are representing more bearish thoughts in the near term. A daily close above 1.63, the cable can fly up 100 pips, and a daily close above 1.64 only, it can fly up to 1.6575-1.66. Until it closes below 1.64, selling on every upmove will mint the money in the near term and on a weekly basis as well.


1411962206_GBPUSDWeekly.png

For an intraday view, the prices are trading near hourly and intraday key moving averages. We recommend selling at the current market price or if any upmove takes place. We can see 1.62 and 1.6175 in a day or two. The pair has resistance at 1.6254, above this, 1.6282, 1.63 and 1.6345. Fresh upmove is only above 1.6345 towards 1.64-1.6415, strong upmove if only it closes above 1.64.

Fundamental analysis and intraday recommendations on EUR/USD for September 29, 2014

EURUSDMonthly.png

The pair is trading at the lowest point of this year, it breached technical support. This week the pair has the couple of key economic events. The German and Spanish CPI data are the key data to focus on as well as the US core PCE price index. Tuesday, German retail sales and unemployment data, French consumer spending and CPI flash data are due. The Spanish and Italian manufacturing data is slated on Wednesday, and the key events are the Thursday ECB press conference, Spanish unemployment and US unemployment claims. The pair hit the 200MEma and is trading below it, it has parallel support at 1.266 (November 2011 low), below this, 1.25, 1.2435 and 1.22 levels. As we recommended earlier, on the down side, 1.22 will act as strong support. On the US dollar front, it has been teasing its counter pairs for the last couple of weeks and is still going on. The US dollar broke the 85 mark, which adds more pressure on the Euro towards 1.22-1.20 levels.


EURUSDH4.png

For an intraday view, the prices are below 12ema and 34hrsma. Whenever the pair rises, the 34hrsma acts as strong hurdle and pushes it to new lows from there. The pair hourly and intraday resistance is at 1.2730 12ema, 1.2765 21hsma and 1.28 34hrsma. Until the prices close below 1.28, selling on every upmove will mint the money. The panic will be triggered below 1.266 towards 1.26 and 1.25 in the near term.
