EUR/NZD analysis for September 24, 2014

EURNZDDaily24.png


EURNZDH424.png


Overview:


Since our last analysis, EUR/NZD has been trading upwards. As we expected, the price tested the level of 1.5978 in an average volume according to the daily chart. Our Fibonacci expansion 100% at the price of 1.6000 almost got tested. If the price breaks the level of 1.6010 in a higher volume, we may see potential testing the level of 1.6200 (swing high like resistance). Anyway, be careful when buying at this stage since the price is near the resistance level. My advice is to wait for retracement and then to build buying positions.


Daily Fibonacci pivot levels :


Resistance levels:


R1: 1.5983


R2: 1.6028


R3: 1.6101


Support levels:


S1: 1.5837


S2: 1.5792


S3: 1.5719


Trading recommendations: Be careful when selling the EUR/NZD pair since we may see further upward movement.

GOLDH424.png


Overview:


Since our last analysis, gold has been trading downwards. As we expected, the price tested the level of 1,221.51 in an ultra high volume. According to the 4H time frame, we can observe strong rejection from our Fibonacci retracement 61.8% at the price of 1,229.00, which is a sign that buying looks very risky. I have placed Fibonacci retracement to find potential support levels and I got Fibonacci retracement 61.8% at the price of 1,218.00. Watch for potential selling opportunities.


Daily pivot Fibonacci points:


Resistance levels:


R1: 1,233.09


R2: 1,238.35


R3: 1,246.87


Support levels


S1: 1,216.05


S2: 1,210.79


S3: 1,202.97


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

Technical analysis of NZD/USD for September 24, 2014

nzdusddaily.png

Trading recommendations :


Time frame: Daily.



  • According to previous events, the price of NZD/USD pair has still been trapped between 0.8133 and 0.8010 in the long term.

  • Buy above the level of 0.7990 (23.6% of Fibonacci retracement levels) with the first target of 0.8070, it might resume moving to 0.8150 and the price will form a new top at this level. The level of 0.8150 will represent a strong resistance today.

  • Below the level 0.8150 look for further downside with 0.8055 and 0.7990 targets.



nzdusdh4.png


Review :



  • It should be noted that the market was rather stable and the downward trend was also clear.

  • Expect a range of 160 pips as a downtrend from the level of 0.8150.

  • A strong support level will be formed at the price of 0.7990.

  • The value of 38.2% Fibonacci retracement levels has set at the 0.8151 level. So, the ratio of 38.2% is going to act as major resistance. Moreover, it is the key level to confirm the bearish market.

Technical analysis of GBP/USD for September 24, 2014

gbpusdh1.png


Overview :



  • Due to the previous events, the price is still between the levels of 1.6324 (the weekly pivot point) and 1.6445, so it is recommended to be careful while making deals in this area. Therefore, it is necessary to wait till the sideways channel is passed through. Thus, the range of the GBP/USD pair will be around 80 pips today. Also, it should be noticed that the weekly pivot point is going to act as a strong support on 24 September, 2014. Then the market will probably show the signs of a bullish trend. In other words, buy deals are recommended above 1.6324 level with their first target at the level of 1.6400. From this point, the pair is likely to begin an ascending movement to the point of 1.6485 ( the weekly resistance 1) and further to the level of 1.6523 ( the double top). However, if the pair fails to pass through the level of 1.6523, the market will indicate a bearish opportunity below the strong resistance level of 1.6523. In this regard, sell deals are recommended lower than the 1.6520 level with the first target at 1.6410. It is possible that the pair will turn downwards continuing the development of the bearish trend to the level 1.6360 then 1.6324 (the weekly pivot point).

Elliott wave analysis of EUR/NZD for September 24 - 2014

2014-09-24-EURNZD-8H.png


Today's support and resistance levels:


R3: 1.5983


R2: 1.5969


R1: 1.5936


Current spot: 1.5924


S1: 1.5901


S2: 1.5883


S3: 1.5860


Technical summary:


We saw the expected strong rally above 1.5859 and it should just be a matter of time before the next strong rally kicks in. This time we should see a break above the base-channel resistance-line near 1.5985 for an acceleration higher to 1.6203 on the way higher to 1.6407. In the short term, only a break below 1.5883 will delay the expected upside rally for a move closer to 1.5860 before the next rally higher.


Trading recommendation:


We are long in EUR from 1.5826 and will move our stop higher to 1.5790. If you are not long in EUR yet, then buy a break above 1.5936 with the same stop at 1.5790.

Elliott wave analysis of EUR/JPY for September 24 - 2014

2014-09-24-EURJPY-8H.png


Today's support and resistance levels:


R3: 140.22


R2: 139.96


R1: 139.76


Current spot: 139.52


S1: 139.36


S2: 139.27


S3: 139.13


Technical summary:


We expect support at 139.27 will be able to protect the downside for a break above minor resistance at 139.76 and more importantly a break above resistance at 140.22, that would call for a strong rally to 141.21 and above for a continuation towards strong resistance at 143.79, where the real battle will unfold. A break above 143.79 will call for much higher levels, but for now, let's see if support at 139.27 will be able to protect the downside, if not it will merely delay the expected upside pressure and the downside progress should be limited.


Trading recommendation:


We are long in EUR from 135.95 with our stop placed at 139.05. If you are not long in EUR yet, then buy EUR near 139.27 or upon a break above 139.76 with the same stop at 139.05

#USDX Technical analysis for September 24, 2014

The Dollar index remains near its highs consolidating. The short-term trend remains neutral. Price is still below important resistance at 85. In case a confirmed break occurs above, it will be a very bullish sign. A rejection at the current levels could bring the index towards 82-81.


usdx.jpg

Red line = resistance


The short-term trend remains neutral. Price is mainly moving sideways hitting the resistance level from below but still getting rejected. Resistance is at 84.80-85 area. Breaking above this area will open the way for a sharp rise towards 86. I prefer to stay neutral and wait for a confirmed signal. Breaking below the Ichimoku cloud at 84.30 will not be a good sign for bulls.


usdxd.jpg

Red line = resistance


In the daily chart above, we see the longer-term trend remains bullish but the sideways action below the strong resistance at 84.80-85 is making us sceptical if bulls have the power to make a break out now. Important daily support is found at 84.20 and if broken this could signal a start of a deeper decline towards 82 or even 81. Bulls should be very cautious now. Very bullish signal if we break and close above 84.80.

Gold Technical analysis for September 24, 2014

Gold price has given a short-term buy signal yesterday after breaking above $1,230 resistance. Gold price has spiked just above $1,234 and pulled back towards $1,220-25 support area. The short-term trend has changed to bullish and we could see a stronger bounce towards $1,250 as long as we trade above $1,215.


goldh4.jpg

Blue line = support


Green line = price channel


Gold price remains in a longer-term a down trend. Price is still below the Ichimoku cloud and inside the downward sloping channel. Price has made a strong bounce from $1,208 to $1,234 and there is still a chance we could see this bounce move higher towards $1,250.


goldd.jpg

Blue line = Long-term support


Gold price in the daily chart as shown above is trying to bounce towards the 38% retracement of the decline from $1,295. It is highly probable to see a push towards $1,250 but traders should keep in mind that the trend remains bearish and betting against the trend is always riskier than following the trend. I prefer to stay neutral for now and wait to see if Gold price reaches $1,250 or if it breaks below the key support at $1,215-10.

Technical analysis of EUR/JPY for September 24, 2014

General overview for 24/09/2014 08:50 CET

The rebound from wave (4) purple low hasn't been strong enough to breakout above the intraday resistance at the level of 140.21 and the price has failed there and got back into the trading range. Nevertheless, it looks like the first wave of the impulsive progression to the upside has been made (labeled as wave blue -i- ), the corrective cycle looks completed as well (labeled as wave -ii-) and now the market should develop another impulsive wave to the upside without breaking the intraday support at the level of 139.16. Any other market movement means that the key levels will be tested soon.


Support/Resistance:

141.22- Swing High|WR1|

140.21 - Intraday Resistance

139.84 - Weekly Pivot

139.16 - Intraday Support |Purple Impulsive Count Invalidation Level|

138.46 - WS1

138.25 - Blue Impulsive Count Invalidation Level

137.12 - WS2 Trading recommendations:

The buy orders from yesterday should still be kept open as there is still a chance for a further upward wave progression. Sl is below the level of 139.16, TP is above the level of 140.26. Longer time frame TP points out towards the level of 141.27 and above. NewPicture2152.jpg

The first level of support for this cycle is at the level of 1.1048 and it is expected from the market to rebound from this level and made another high. Support/Resistance:

1.1097 - Swing High|Technical Resistance|

1.1082 - Intraday Resistance

1.1065 - WR1

1.1048 - Intraday Support

Technical Analysis of USD/CAD for September, 2014

USDCADH4.png


The pair took the support from 50Dsma and again moved to higher levels. It tried to breach the previous high, but again is facing some selling pressure at the 1.11 levels. Today, in Asia's session the pair is unable to cross the previous day high. For the last 2 weeks, the pair has been facing strong resistance at 1.11. If it is taken off, we can see a sharp run up to 100 pips. The pair has a strong support zone between 1.0865 and 1.08464. A weekly closing basis below 50WSma the NT and ST view looks bearish. So, use a dip to buy.

Intraday trading recommendations for GBP/JPY for September 24, 2014

GBPJPYH4.png


The pair gave a strong close in yesterday's session. But today the pair during Asia's session was unable to breach the previous high. Hourly tarders can use sl 178.46 selling at cmp 178.35 for a target of 177.50. For an intraday view, the prices are closed below 35DEMA. The prices have been holding 12ema at 178, below this, 177.80 and 177.30 are the major support levels. The pair will face some selling pressure below 177.30 towards 176.65, 176.40 and 175 levels. On the other hand, the pair has resistance at 178.73, above this, it can fly up to 179.90 levels. We can see strong upmove above 179.90 levels.


GBPJPYDaily.png

For the short-term view, the pair managed to breach the 200MSma for the first time in the monthly chart after the 2008 fall. In case of a monthly close above 177.65, 200MSma leads to further bullishness in the short term. If the USD index breaches the $85 mark, the yen will weaken further in the future, that adds bullish outlook in this pair in the short term towards 183 and 185-186. This view adds fuel once the pair is able to close above 200MSma on a monthly basis, still 6 trading days left. The pair has strong support at 170 for the short- and medium- term basis.

Technical analysis of GBP/CHF for September 24, 2014


Technical outlook and chart setups:


The GBP/CHF is stalling around 1.5400 levels, just ahead of resistance at 1.5450 levels for now. The pair could be carving out a lower top, and preparing to drift lower into 1.5230 levels before rallying again. Please also note that 1.5230 is fibonacci 0.618 support of the rally between 1.5093 and 1.5450 as seen here. Furthermore, it is also converging with the past resistance turned support region, depicted here as 1.5220/30. An aggressive trade strategy would warrant a short position now, with risk above 1.5450 while a conservative way would be to remain flat for now and wait for prices to come towards 1.5230 levels before turning long. Chart support is seen at 1.5090, followed by 1.4975 and lower, while resistance is seen at 1.5450 respectively.


Trading recommendations:


Remain flat for now and look to enter around 1.5230 OR Initiate short positions, stop above 1.5450 target is 1.5230/40.


Good luck!

Intraday trading recommendations for EUR/JPY for September 24, 2014

EURJPYDaily.png


The pair made a double top at 140.45 in the daily chart and is going through a healthy correction. The pair hit the breakout upper end of the trend line many times, now it is acting as a current support trend line on a closing basis. The pair has managed to close above 200Dsma for 3 days. The pair opened today's session at 139.88 and is trading at 139.75, near 20Dsma. Until the pair trades below 140.20, the pair looks weak attracting bears. The trading pattern is framed between 140.20-139.27 levels. A daily close below 200Dsma or the top end of the triangle, in the near term the pair will favor profit booking.


Support: 139.27-139.16, 138.45, 138.25.


Resistance: 140.21, 140.45, 141.80.


1411524970_EURJPYH4.png

For an intraday view, the prices are closed below the 35DEMA and 12ema represents some weakness in the hourly chart. Sellers (sl 140.21) can short at the cmp. The weakness will double below 139.27 towards 139.18, 139.10 and 138.46. Safe sellers can sell only below 139.10. Above 140.21 it can fly to 141 levels.


In case of a weekly close below 139.10, the bears will have an upper hand.

Technical analysis of Silver for September 24, 2014


Technical outlook and chart setups:


Silver has pulled back from sub $18.00 levels yesterday as seen here. It is also the fibonacci 0.382 resistance of the drop between $18.90 and $17.30 levels as depicted. A 1H chart view has been presented here for a closer look into the wave structure. It clearly indicates that the metal remains very much into the sell zone of resistance line. The immediate resistance is seen at $18.60/90 region, followed by $19.10/20 while support is at $17.30 (interim). It is recommended to still remain flat since bulls need to clear at least $18.60/90 before a bullish reversal could be confirmed. Downside risk remains but the metal is soon approaching its major support region around $16.00 levels.


Trading recommendations:


Remain flat for now.


Good luck!
