Technical analysis of USD/JPY for March 11, 2015

USDJPYM30.png


Fundamental Outlook:
USD/JPY is expected to consolidate in a lower range after hitting a 7.5-year high of 122.04 on EBS on Tuesday. USD/JPY is undermined by the flows to the safe-haven yen and unwinding of JPY-funded carry trades amid increased risk aversion (VIX fear gauge rose 10.82% to 16.69, S&P 500 closed 1.7% lower at 2,044.16 overnight) as worries rise that the Federal Reserve will start its withdrawal of monetary stimulus midyear. USD/JPY is also weighed by the lower US Treasury yields (10-year at 2.121% versus 2.195% late Monday) and Japan's exports. The USD/JPY losses are tempered by demand from the Japan importers and the ultra-loose Bank of Japan's monetary policy and bullish USD sentiment (ICE spot dollar index hit 11.5-year high 98.808 Tuesday, last 98.67 versus 97.79 early Tuesday) as Friday's strong US February non-farm payrolls report raised expectations that the Fed will abandon the term "patient" from its interest rate statement next Wednesday and could raise interest rates from near zero as soon as June. The losses are also limited by a bigger-than-expected on-month increase of 0.3% in US January wholesale inventories (versus the forecast for no change).


Technical comment:
The daily chart is mixed as the MACD is bullish, 5 and 15-day moving averages are advancing, but stochastics is turning bearish at the overbought levels. Bearish doji shooting-star candlestick pattern was completed on Tuesday.


Trading recommendations:

The pair is trading above its pivot point. It is likely to trade in a higher range as far as it remains above its pivot point. As long as the price is keeping above its pivot point, a long position is recommended with the first target at 122 and the second target at 122.50. In an alternative scenario, if the price moves below its pivot points, short positions are recommended with the first target at 120.60. A break of this target would push the pair further downwards, and one may expect the second target at 120.20. The pivot point is at 120.90.

USDCHFM30.png


Fundamental overview:
USD/CHF is expected to consolidate with bullish bias after hitting almost a two-month high of 1.0000 on EBS on Tuesday.

Technical analysis of NZD/USD for March 11, 2015

NZDUSDM30.png


Fundamental overview:
NZD/USD is expected to consolidate with bearish bias after hitting a one-month low of 0.7249 onTuesday as markets await the Reserve Bank of New Zealand interest rate announcement at 20:00 GMT (RBNZ is widely expected to leave rates on hold at 3.5%). Kiwi sentiment was hurt by food safety issue for the New Zealand dairy industry after police revealed a threat to contaminate infant and other dairy formula. NZD/USD is also undermined by bullish dollar sentiment, soft commodity prices and kiwi sales on the buoyant AUD/NZD cross and kiwi sales on the soft NZD/JPY cross amid increased investor risk aversion. The NZD/USD losses are tempered by the NZD-USD yield differential.

Daily analysis of USDX for March 11, 2015

The today's session is expected to give the USDX more upside room as we can see aton the daily chart that the instrument is trying to perform a consolidation above the resistance level of 99.19. At the moment, we expect a bullish pattern formation because we do not like how the USDX is doing the bullish rallies due to the overbought levels in the oscillators at lower time frames.


USDXDaily.png




The solid bullish structure developed at the session on February 26 is still alive and the USDX is trying again to reach new historical highs. The immediate resistance is located at the psycological level of 100.00. In that zone we could see strong pullbacks in the near term, because the MACD indicator could be inside the overbought territory when the USDX is trading inside this price zone.


USDXH1.png




Daily chart's resistance levels: 99.19 / 100.49


Dailychart's support levels: 98.01 / 96.96


H1 chart's resistance levels: 99.13 / 100.00


H1 chart's support levels: 97.96 / 96.85






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 99.13, take profit is at 100.00, and stop loss is at 98.30.

Daily analysis of GBP/USD for March 11, 2015

There is still enough downside room for more falls in the GBP/USD pair on the daily chart, as the pair is approaching the support level of 1.4948. Currently, it is forming a lower low pattern, so the bearish trend is getting more strength. It is still possible that GBP/USD will reach the low level of 1.4820 in the coming days.


GBPUSDDaily.png




The sideways moves continue on the H1 chart as the GBP/USD pair is still trapped in a low range between the levels of 1.5097 and 1.5028. The 200 SMA on the H1 chart is bearish and the MACD indicator is entering negative territory, so we could expect more falls to at least the support level of 1.4948 in an intraday outlook.

Daily chart's resistance levels: 1.5086 / 1.5247

H1 chart's support levels: 1.5028 / 1.4948






Trading recommendations for today: Based on the H1 chart, place short (sell) orders only if the GBP/USD pair breaks a bearish candlestick; the support level is at 1.5028, take profit is at 1.4948, and stop loss is at 1.5108.

Technical analysis of USD/CHF for March 11, 2015

usdchfh1.png

Overview :



  • The USD/CHF pair has not shown signs of following the break of the highest level of 0.9978, So the support has been set at the level of 0.9980 on the H1 chart. Therefore, it will be a good sign to buy above the level of 0.9980 with the first target of 1.0093 and resume to 1.0130. However, in case if a reversal takes place and the USD/CHF pair breaks through the support level of 0.9980, the market will lead to a further decline to 0.9861 (88.2% Fibonacci retracement levels) in order to indicate the correction movement at this level. Meanwhile, the daily chart represents a strong support at 88.2% (0.9861 ) Fibonacci retracement levels, but the channel emerging of RSI is still positive on the weekly frame, so the RSI calls for a new uptrend at this level. Moreover, if the EMA50 (blue color) crosses over the last support at the level of 0.9980, it would be a confirmation for an uptrend in the long-term period.


Observations :



  • Please, check out the market volatility before investing, because the sight price may have already been reached and the scenarios might have become invalidated.

  • Volatility: 218.25. As a rule, the market is highly volatile if the last day had a huge volatility.

  • Buyers are bidding at a lower price.

  • Sellers are asking for a higher price.

Technical analysis of GBP/USD for March 11, 2015

1426070545_gbpusdh1.png

Overview :



  • According to the previous events, the price of the GBP/USD pair has been still moving between the prices of 1.5120 and 1.5030. The level of 1.5172 represents the weekly pivot point. It should be noted that the weekly pivot point coincides with the ratio of 38.2% Fibonacci retracement levels. Thus, new resistance has been set at the level of 1.5153. So, sell below 1.55172 in the long term with the first target of 1.5030 in order to test the double bottom. Then, if the trend can break the double bottom at 1.5947, it might resume to 1.5968 (near a minor support area). Stop loss should never exceed your maximum exposure amounts. Hence, it will be rather profitable to set your stop loss at the level of 1.5190. Moreover, the weekly support and resistance will be set at 1.5172 and 1.4960, respectively. Additionaly, the weekly pivot point is being set at the level of 1.5172. It should be noted that if there is no significant news to influence, the market price will be moving from the pivot point to the resistance 1 or support 1. But if there is significant news, the market price may go straight through the resistance 1 or support 1 and reach the resistance 2 or support 2 and even resistance 3 or support 3.

#USDX technical analysis for March 11, 2015

The Dollar index remains in a strong uptrend and has reached our short-term targets very easily. The Dollar index might make a short-term pullback soon but it is very difficult to say yet as this bullish trend is extremely strong.


usdx.jpg


Orange lines = bullish price channel


The Dollar index remains inside the upward sloping price channel but has reached the upper channel boundaries. This is a resistance area and we could see a throwoff above it to complete the upward wave from 94.10. We could see a pullback towards the 38% retracement towards 97.25 before we resume the bullish trend towards 100-101.


usdxd.jpg


My longer-term target remains at 100-101 as I have been saying for some time recently. The 61.8% retracement is my target and I believe the bullish trend will very soon reach this level. Support on the monthly chart is at 94.50.

Gold price remains inside the short-term downward sloping channel. A short-term trend remains bearish with a possible target at $1,140. A move towards $1,200 is possible only if price breaks above $1,175.

Gold price remains below the Ichimoku cloud and inside the bearish price channel. Resistance is found at $1,175 and support is at $1,140. A trend is bearish as price is making lower lows and lower highs. $1,200 is important intermediate resistance level. Ichimoku cloud indicators point sideways implying that today we may see a pause to the decline as long as we hold above $1,158.


goldd.jpg


The weekly chart remains fully bearish in all time frames. According to the weekly chart, any upward reversal will find strong resistance at $1,215 where the kijun-sen (yellow line) is found. A longer-term trend remains bearish. Long-term resistance is at $1,250-70.

Technical outlook and chart setups:


The USD/JPY pair has hit fresh highs at 122.00 levels yesterday before pulling back sharply towards 121.00 levels. As depicted on the hourly chart setup, the pair has broken a short-term support line for now and is expected to face resistance at 121.60 levels which is fibonacci 0.618 of yesterdays drop from 122.00 to 121.00 levels. A bearish reaction at 121.60 levels could push the USD/JPY pair towards 120.10 levels, where an intermediary support trend line is passing.

eurusd11032015.jpg


Technical outlook and chart setups:


An hourly chart setup has been depicted here for EUR/USD, to determine short-term resistance and support levels and find a potential entry. The pair seems to have possibly made bottoms around 1.0660/70 levels as seen here. A break above 1.0720 levels would confirm that a short-term low is in place at 1.0660 and the pair is headed higher towards at least 1.0860 levels (towards intermediary resistance line). It is recommended to initiate long positions on dips after 1.0720 levels break with risk at 1.0600. On the flip side, a drop below 1.0660 levels could be sold with risk at 1.0720.

Trading recommendations:


Flat for now. Sell below 1.0660, stop at 1.0720 or buy on dips after 1.0720 breaks.

Technical analysis and trading recommendations on USD against CAD, YEN for March 11, 2015

Analysis of USD AGAINST CAD & JPY


USD/CAD


The stronger US data raises hope for the soonest interest rates hikes. The greenback is painting a better bull picture against CAD & Yen. At yesterday's session, the pair manage to break above 1.2700, but effect gone wasted. Today at the Asian session, the USD is trading higher against the CAD. The parallel resistance seems at 1.2700. The pair has been in a consolidation range for 25 sessions between 1.2350 and 1.2700 giving a possible upside breakout today. The weekly support is set at 1.2350 and monthly is at 1.2300. The weekly resistance is found at 1.2700. Bulls can challenge 1.2970, in case the prices close above 1.2700. The intraday support is seen at 1.2670 and 1.2600. As we recommended earlier, on a weekly positional view, until the prices close above 1.2350, buying remains in play with targets at 1.2565, 1.2660, and 1.2680. All the targets met. Overall, the picture favors buying on dips. For an intraday, we advise buying with targets at 1.2660 and 1.2690. We can expect strong upswing looms above 1.2700.


Trade: we remain in buying.


USDCADH4_(1).png


USD/JPY


Japan's core machinery orders again disappointed with a decease by 1.7% from a 8.3% uptick. The pair managed to breach a previous high, but was unable to hold its gains. We have been recommending buying on every dip. Now, we are revising the targets at 124, 125.00, and 125.75. The prices are making higher lows and higher highs on the h4 chart. Support has climbed from 118.20 to 119.80. It's a good sign for further room on the upswing. If the price closes above 121.85 on a weekly basis, we can see 128.00 as well. At Friday's session, we advised buying sl 119.80 with targets at 120.00, 120.20, and 120.50. Yesterday, we extended our targets to 121.50 and 121.80. All the targets met. It's a one side move all the way to new highs. The pair has intraday support at 120.80. Another upswing looms above 122.0. Until a h4 candle closes above 119.80, the long trade remains in play. The overall picture favours buying on dips.


Trade: we remain buyers.

Daily analysis of major pairs for March 11, 2015

EUR/USD: This pair is very weak, and it may continue to do so. Only an exponential gain of stamina of the EUR could reverse this bearish trend. As it was mentioned earlier this week, a break below the strong support line at 1.0500 would mean that the euro would reach parity with the USD. If that fails to occur, the price is likely to stay above the aforementioned support line.


1.png


USD/CHF:This currency trading instrument has continued its slow and steady journey to the upside. The great psychological level of 1.0000 is under siege now and with more bullishness in the market, it is likely to be breached to the upside. The buying pressure would remain intact as long as the EUR/USD pair is weak.


2.png


GBP/USD: The Cable is currently volatile and the battle between bulls and bears is intense. We are watching the accumulation territory around 1.5000. While the price may test that accumulation zone, there could also be some desperate attempts by bulls to push the price upwards.


3.png


USD/JPY: This is also a bullish market and it is supposed to keep on being bullish, though there could be occasional pullbacks. The price is above the EMA 56 and the RSI period 14 is above the level of 50. The demand level at 120.00 is being watched.


4.png


EUR/JPY: As expected, the EUR/JPY pair has continued its downward journey. As a result of a serious weakness in the euro, the bearish confirmation pattern is very strong in the market. Demand zones around 129.00 and 128.50 could be tested, even if the EUR/JPY pair rallies this week.

Technical analysis of GBP/CHF for March 11, 2015

gbpchf11032015.jpg


Technical outlook and chart setups:


The GBP/CHF pair has raised through 1.5080 levels as discussed on March 09, 2015. The pair could push higher into 1.5150 from here on, but possibility remains for a dip first. As depicted here, the pair could initially drop towards 1.4920/30 levels before resuming a rally. Please note that the uptrend remains very much intact since the huge drop on January 15, 2015, and bulls are expected to remain in control till prices stay above 1.4760 levels. Immediate support is seen at 1.4820, followed by 1.4760,1.4656 and lower while resistance is seen at 1.5150, 1.5400 and higher respectively. Also note that the pair remains buy on dips since both short- and medium-term support trend lines remain intact.


Trading recommendations:


Look to buy around 1.4923 levels, stop is at 1.4800, a target is at 1.5150 and higher.




Good luck!

Technical analysis of Gold for March 11, 2015

GOLD


The stronger US dollar pushed the yellow metal's prices down to a 4-month low. After Friday's US jobs data, the yellow metal fell 2.5% and is still extending its lows. The US dollar is going on its upswing towards the 100 mark. Every day, hopes are reinforcing that US Federal Reserve will lift interest rates earlier. The physical demand is weak as well. China's physical buying is drying up and signalling more room for the downside. A stronger USD capped the precious metal. The US Federal Reserve is leaning in favor of the sooner interest rates hike. Until prices close below $1,200.00, bears have the upper hand. The intraday support is found at $1,161.00 and resistance is seen at $1,165.00 and $1,170.00. The weekly resistance is set between $1,184.00. We recommend intraday buying above $1,165.00, safe buying above $1,170.00 with targets at $1,170.00 and $1,175.00


Resistance: $1,175.00, $1,179.10, $1,187.00.


Support: $1,163.00, $1,155.00, $1,150.00.


Trade: selling below $1,161.00. Buying above $1,165.00.

Technical analysis and trading recommendations on GBP against USD, YEN for March 11, 2015

GBP/USD


A fall in commodity prices leads to a fall in interest rates. Mark Carney hinted, UK's inflation is likely to fall to zero. Today, traders eye UK's manufacturing production report. We expect an uptick 0.2% from the previous 0.1%. The cable erased mostly of its gains at yesterday's session. Ahead of the manufacturing production data the cable is trading with a mild positive bias at the Asian session. We are bullish for the British pound against crosses, but still remain cautious about the US dollar. The UK is slowly approaching its general election scheduled in May. Market participants expect the pound to get under downward pressure. A trading pattern is framed between 1.5140 and 1.5030. The support seems at 1.5029. The cable has parallel support between 1.4990 and 1.4950. The monthly support is seen at 1.4810. In case, the price closes below 1.4950, we can expect 1.4800 in the medium term and 1.4350 in the longer term. The cross EUR/GBP is also weighing on the pound. The eurozone is the major trading partner of the UK. We recommend fresh intraday selling below 1.5020 with targets at 1.4990, and 1.4960. The panic will be triggered below 1.4950 towards 1.4560 initially. Until the prices close below 1.5190, the near-term bearish view remains on play. Until the prices close below 1.5300, the intra-month bearish view remains on play. The strong momentum will ignite only above 1.5190. Bulls will regain mild strength, in case the pair closes above 1.5140 on a daily basis.


Resistance: 1.5100, 1.5170, 1.5200.


Support: 1.5029, 1.4990, 1.4950.


Trade: buying above 1.5110 with targets at 1.5135 and 1.5170.

The pair been struggling to close above 20Dsma for 4 days. The cross has intraday support at 182.10 or 100Dsma.


The weekly support is seen between 181.47 and 181.20 or 50Dsma. The parallel resistance seems at 183.70. On a monthly basis, until the cross closes above 181.20, the long trade remains in play. We are bullish for the British pound against crosses, but still remain cautious about the US dollar. The trading pattern is shifted to 181.50 and 184.00 from 185.00 and 183.50. The panic will be triggered below 181.50 towards 181.00,180.00 and 176.50. At yesterday's session, our trailing stop loss was taken out at 182.80. Today, again we recommend buying again with sl 182.10 with targets at 182.80 and 182.90. Huge upswing for intraday looms at 183.00 to 184.00. A new upswing looms above 184.20. In case the price closes above 184.20, it can extend its rally towards 185.00 and 186.85. Besides, in case the price closes below 181.00, a steep fall will ignite.


Trade: positional buying sl 181.20 remains in play.


Intraday trade: buying sl 182.10


On a positional basis, bulls must try to close above 185.00 as early as they can.

Technical analysis and trading recommendations on EUR against USD, YEN for March 11, 2015

EUR/USD


The French industrial production jumped in January. Over the last three months, output rose slightly in the manufacturing sector (+0.2% q-o-q), as well as in the industry as a whole (+0.2%, q-o-q). Manufacturing output of the last three months fell compared to the same months of the previous year (–0.7% y-o-y). It declined more markedly in overall industrial output (–0.9% y-o-y). But Italy's industrial production decreased. In January 2015, the industrial production index seasonally adjusted decreased by 0.7% compared to December. The percentage change of the last three months on average was +0.1% compared to the previous three months. It was a mixed outcome from the eurozone. Among the eurozone economies, France is showing minor signs of recovery. France is the second biggest economy in the eurozone.


Today, traders are awaiting BoE Governor Carney speech and French nonfarm payroll data. We do not expect changes in Q4.


Technical view. The pair broke below August 2008 lows, aiming for 1.0560 and 1.0530 in the near term. Eventually, it can go below 1.0000. The prices are closed and trading far below hourly moving averages. Until prices close below 1.0.960, use every rise to sell this week. The weekly resistance is found between 1.0780 and 1.0960. Forget buying, until the price closes below 1.0960 on a positional basis. The near-term target seems at 1.0560. The longer-term target seems at 0.9000 in case prices close below 1.0760 on a monthly basis. The downtrend remains strong. We are recommending lower targets initially at sub 1.1000 and later 0.9000. At yesterday's session, we recommended fresh intraday selling below 1.0820 with targets at 1.0800 and 1.0750. The pair made a low at 1.0660.


Resistance: 1.0740, 1.0780, 1.0825.


Support: 1.0680, 1.0600, 1.0560.


Trade: use a rise to sell.


Intraday, selling below 1.0680 with targets at 1.0600 and 1.0575.

EUR/JPY


Mixed economic data punched the euro against JPY. After Japan's GDP release, the pair broke the previous swing low. The cross is testing its fate at 129.00 or 200Mema. Technically, the cross broke below the 200Wsma, 100Msma, and 200Msma. In case, the price closes below 129.00, bears can challenge 128.00 and 125.00 in the near and short term. We still recommend selling at 132.35 with targets at 131.20, 130.90, 129.50, and even 129.00. Yesterday, the cross made a low at 129.22. The lowest lows and lower highs have been developing on the h4 chart, suggesting more room for a downside is yet to come. The intraday resistance is set between 130.70 and 130.80. Steep fall will be triggered below 129.00 with targets at 128.00, 125.00, and even 122.50.


Key levels to watch: 129.00 monthly. The pair broke and closed below the weekly key support level, now focus is shifted to the monthly support at 129.00.


If prices close below 129.60 on weekly basis, the last hope seems at 129.00.


Weekly support: 129.00.


Monthly support: 129.00.


Trade: fresh selling below 129.00 for safe trades.


Risky trades: buying with sl 129.00.

Elliott wave analysis of EUR/NZD for March 11 - 2015

2015-03-11-EURNZD-4H.png


Technical summary:


The correction of red wave ii became more complex than expected, but we are looking for a break above minor resistance at 1.4762 to confirm that red wave iii is developing higher towards 1.5254. As long as minor resistance at 1.4770 protects the upside, an even more complex correction of red wave ii can not be ruled out, but the bottom at 1.4525 should be safe.


Trading recommendation:


We are long EUR from 1.4725 and will keep our stop 1.4560. If you are not long EUR yet, buy upon a break above 1.4762 with a stop at 1.4655.

Daily analysis of Silver for March 10, 2015

SILVER_10-3.png




Overview


According to the today's H4 chart, the metal has failed to break the support level of 15.70 to bounce again from it and to trade between the support level and below the resistance level of 16.00. Currently, the metal is approaching the resistance level of 16.00; therefore, we should wait for closing above to continue its uptrend move. The metal has managed to close H4 above today, so this gives us a good opportunity for more bullish signals above it with the first target few pips below the resistance level of 16.30, then the second target of 16.50 after breaking this support level. However, as long as silver is trading below the level of 16.00, waiting would be prefered. This case will also cancel the bullish move scenario.


Resistance and support levels: R3 (16.50), R2 (16.30), R1 (16.00), S1 (15.70), S2 (15.50), S3(15.20)

Daily analysis of GBP/JPY for March 10, 2015

GBPJPY_10-3.png




Overview


On the H4 chart the closure below the resistance level of 183.50 gives the price an opportunity for a slightly bearish move again. As it is shown here, currently, the price is trying to continue its bearish move by breaking the support level of 182.50 and closing H4 below which it is being tested now. In that case, we might get another opportunity for more sell signals and it opens the way towards the level of 182.00 as the first target. Then, the price should test the support level of 181.50 to continue its bearish move. But as long as the price stabilizes above the support level of 182.50, it cancels the first scenario.


Resistance and support levels: R3 (184.60), R2 (184.00), R1 (183.50), S1 (182.50), S2 (182.00), S3 (181.50).

EUR/NZD : analysis for March 10, 2015

EURNZDDaily10.png


EURNZDH410.png


Overview:


In our last analysis EUR/NZD was trading upwards. As we expected, the price has tested and has rejected from the level of 1.4865. Our Fibonacci expansion 100% at the price of 1.4860 was held successfully which is a sign that buying EUR/NZD at this stage looks risky. I have placed Fibonacci retracement to find potential support levels and have got Fibonacci retracement 61.8% around the price of 1.4670. My advice is to watch for potential buying opportunities after retracement.


Daily Fibonacci pivot levels:


Resistance levels:


R1: 1.4785


R2: 1.4812


R3: 1.4855


Support levels:


S1: 1.4698


S2: 1.4671


S3: 1.4621


Trading recommendations: Be careful when selling at this stage and watch for potential buying opportunities after a retracement (buy on the dips).
