GBP/USD intraday technical levels and trading recommendations for March 31, 2015

gbdail.png1427814183_gbh44.png


Overview:


On February 5, temporary bullish breakout above 1.5220 (previous consolidation range) took place. Shortly after, an ascending channel was established at the level of 1.5170-1.5200. This indicates bullish sentiment on the market.


A projected target for this bullish breakout has already been reached around 1.5550 where the previous daily bottoms were located (solid resistance).


Two weeks ago, the bearish breakdown of lower limit of the depicted channel occurred enhancing the bearish side of the market and confirming the Flag pattern as bearish.


Significant bearish pressure was applied at the price of 1.5200 (R2), then 1.4950 (R1 = broken weekly bottom).


Bearish persistence below 1.4950-1.5000 indicated a further bearish decline. Initial projection target for this bearish breakout was located at 1.4700.


Recently, GBP/USD bulls managed to defend the recent bottom at 1.4700. Evident bullish rejection was expressed around 1.4630 resulting in the formation of a bullish head and shoulders reversal pattern.


Fixation above 1.4980-1.5000 (neck-line) is likely to extend the pattern's projection target towards 1.5200.


Otherwise, the GBP/USD pair remains in the long-term downtrend as depicted on both the daily and weekly charts. If so, bearish breakdown of 1.4700 is needed to resume this bearish scenario.


Trading recommendations:


Conservative traders can wait for the H4 closure above 1.5000 for a short-term buy entry.


TP levels should be set at 1.5080, 1.5120, and finally at 1.5200.


SL should be set as daily closure below 1.4900.

USD/CAD intraday technical levels and trading recommendations for March 31, 2015

cadweekly.pngcadddaa1.png


Overview:


Since bulls have pushed further above the upper limit of both depicted bullish channels and the 79.6% Fibonacci level the market looks quite overbought.


However, bullish pressure is still expressed as the previous weekly closure came above 1.2550 (consolidation zone mid-line).


Successive lower highs were established within the wedge pattern. However, the market expressed a bullish breakout above 1.2550-1.2600 shortly after.


The market failed to hold above 1.2650 - 1.2680 (previous highs) resulting in the formation of a double-top pattern that calls for confirmation (daily closure below 1.2350).


On the other hand, the support level around 1.2350 (lower limit of the wedge pattern) and 1.2300 (79.6% Fibonacci level) have been providing support for successive weeks on the daily chart.


In the long term, a projected target for USD/CAD wedge pattern would be located near the level of 1.3050 (the origin of the last bearish swing initiated on March 2009).


Last week, the resulting weekly candlestick came strongly positive (bullish hammer) closing above the price level of 1.2550 (mid-zone of the consolidation range) that failed to provide enough resistance for the pair.


This enhances the bullish side of the market. The next resistance level, hence the next target to meet the pair, is located at 1.2790.


Weekly closure above 1.2750 (upper limit of the current consolidation range) is mandatory to pursue towards higher projection targets.


Trading recommendations:


As anticipated for risky traders, bearish pullback towards 1.2350 was considered for buy entry that is running in profits now. S/L can be advanced to the price level of 1.2400.


Target levels to be visited at 1.2850 and 1.3050.

Intraday technical levels and trading recommendations for EUR/USD for March 31, 2015

eurmonthhh.png


The market aggressively pushed lower after breaking below major demand levels around 1.2100 and 1.2000 where historical bottoms were previously established back in July 2012 and June 2010.


The EUR/USD pair has lost almost 1600 pips since the beginning of 2015. Moreover, the EUR/USD pair has been already pushed slightly below the monthly demand level around 1.0550 (established on January 1997) where some bullish recovery was applied as anticipated.


The price action should be observed around the current monthly demand level looking for monthly closure below 1.0570 as theoretical long-term targets are projected around 0.9450.


eurusdaily.png


Obvious bearish breakdown of the weekly demand level at 1.1100 enhanced the bearish side of the market exposing lower targets.


Full projection targets for the Flag pattern were successfully reached around 1.0800 and 1.0500.


As anticipated, after such a long bearish rally (which started off 1.1300) bullish rejection was around 1.0570 (monthly demand level).


Since then, the EUR/USD pair has been moving towards 1.1150.


We mentioned that daily persistence above the price zone of 1.0850-1.0860 (recent demand zone) is a must to maintain the bullish corrective movement towards 1.1100 where a long-term sell position can be offered.


On the other hand, daily closure below 1.0850 (already took place yesterday) invalidates the bullish correction, bringing the EUR/USD pair back towards 1.0650-1.0600 (weekly low).

Intraday technical levels and trading recommendations for GBP/USD for March 31, 2015

gbpusdaily.png


The market has previously established a consolidation zone around 1.5000, which extended up to 1.5280. This was followed by a transient uptrend maintained within the depicted channel.


Bulls managed to push towards higher levels, including 1.5550 (just below the weekly supply level).


Significant bearish pressure was applied around 1.5550 resulting in the formation of multiple bearish engulfing daily candlesticks.


Demand levels located around 1.5200 and 1.5000 failed to provide enough support for the GBP/USD pair. This was followed by bearish decline towards 1.4700.


Last week, strong bullish rejection was expressed around 1.4700 (weekly low). A significant bullish weekly candlestick was expressed by the end of the week.


As anticipated, the price zone around 1.4960-1.5000 was expected to provide SUPPLY at retesting. It corresponds to the upper limit of the long-term depicted channel, 38.2% Fibonacci level and a broken weekly demand, which goes back to January 2015.


Note that daily persistence above the price level of 1.5090 (50% Fibo level) indicates a quick bullish spike towards the price level of 1.5380 (projection target).


gbpusdh4.png


Recently, GBP/USD bulls failed to defend their demand zone around 1.4960-1.5000, which was breached two weeks ago.


Evident bullish recovery was manifested on the H4 chart near the price levels around 1.4700 (weekly low).


Fixation above 1.4700-1.4720 enhanced a bullish side of the market allowing another bullish swing towards 1.4990 to take place.


Recently, the GBP/USD pair failed to trade above the price level of 1.4970 as a flag pattern is being expressed since the price levels of 1.4970-1.5000 were visited.


Conservative traders should note that the GBP/USD pair remains trapped between 1.4700 and 1.4970 until a breakout occurs in either direction (the current consolidation range was anticipated in the previous articles).


However, a quick bearish pullback towards the price level of 1.4720 (daily demand level) may be watched for a quick counter-trend buy entry. Stop loss should be located below 1.4625.

Technical analysis of USD/CAD for March 31, 2015

General overview for 31/03/2015 16:05 CET


The demand had broken through the grey rectangle zone between the levels of 1.2700 - 1.2721 and now it looks like the five wave impulsive wave progression to the upside is completed. If it is so, then the corrective cycle should be in progress now with the first wave a purple done already and waves (b and c purple) are next to unfold. The first target for the corrective cycle to hit is the zone between the levels of 1.2682 - 1.2650. Please notice that it might still be just a sub-wave of much larger corrective cycle coming in.


Support/Resistance:


1.2833 - Swing High


1.2783 - Intraday Resistance


1.2771 - WR2


1.2712 - WR1

Trading recommendations:


Daytraders should exit the buy orders at the current price levels and wait for the corrective cycle to complete before opening any more buy orders. The situation will be monitored closely for next trade opportunity on this pair.

Technical analysis of USD/CHF for March 31, 2015

usdchfh4.png

Overview :



  • The USD/CHF pair is likely to find strong support at the level of 0.9502 and face resistance at 1.0127. Moreover, it should be noted that the double top will be placed at the same level of 1.0127. Equally important, the price is still moving between 0.9610 and 0.9777 today. Also, the USD/CHF pair is still above the ratio of Fibonacci 61.8% retracement since February 19, 2019. As a result, the price has already formed strong support at the level of 0.9502 and it is approaching it now in order to test it again. Therefore, the USD/CHF pair will get an upside convincing momentum. The structure of the rise does not look corrective. It indicates a bullish opportunity above the levels of 0.9502 and 0.9610.



usdchfdaily.png


  • So, it will be a good sign to buy above 0.9502 or/and 0.9610 with the first target at 0.9720 (this level coincides with the daily pivot point) and it will call for an uptrend in order to continue bullish move towards 0.9777 in the coming hours. However, the stop loss should always be taken into account. Thus, it will be wise to set your stop loss at 0.9473.

Technical analysis of GBP/USD for March 31, 2015

gbpusdh1.png

Overview :


The price of the GBP/USD pair has not stabilized yet because the trend has been moving between 1.4890 and 1.4759 since yesterday. Also, it might note that the levels of 1.4888 and 1.4752 represent the weekly pivot point and the double bottom respectively. Furthermore, it should be mentioned that resistance has been already set at the level of 1.4888 and support is placed at 1.4703. It would be wise to be careful in this area. So, the first step is to wait in this spot before investing. As a result, the GBP/USD pair is likely to start showing the signs of the bullish market at the level of 1.4700. In other words, it will be a good idea to buy above 1.4700 with the first target at 1.4836 in order to try to close above minor resistance. Then, it is going to call for an uptrend to continue its bullish movement towards 1.4888 to test the weekly pivot point for forming the strong resistance at this price in the H1 chart. Consequently, the market will indicate a bearish opportunity at the spot of 1.4888/1.4900. The level is likely to be acting as strong resistance today. Hence, it is providing a clear signal for sell deals at the levels of 1.4888/1.4900 again with the target at 1.4760. On the other hand, the stop loss should be placed above 1.4915.

Technical outlook and chart setups:


The EUR/USD pair has made intraday lows at 1.0700/10 today before pulling back higher. As seen in the chart view here, the pair failed to push through 1.1050 recently.

Immediate resistance is seen at 1.1050 followed by 1.1120,1.1500, and higher, while support is seen at 1.0600 followed by 1.0460 and lower respectively.

The bullish bias is now very clear in the H1 chart, as the USDX is doing a consolidation above the 200 SMA and the support level at 98.36. If the USDX breaks the resistance level at 98.77, it would open the way to reach the next resistance zone around 99.16.

Technical analysis of GBP/CHF for March 31, 2015


Technical outlook and chart setups:


The GBP/CHF pair seems to be breaking above 1.4400 at the moment. The next resistance should be met at 1.4630.

Potential still remains for a fresh high above 1.5200 from here on. Immediate support is seen at 1.4000, followed by 1.3850, while resistance is seen at 1.4630 followed by 1.4800 and higher respectively.

Technical outlook and chart setups:


Gold has been retracing since hitting highs at $1,220.00 last week.

#USDX technical analysis for March 31, 2015

The Dollar index continues to show signs of strength. The reversal from 96 is likely to be a confirmed trend change and resumption of the uptrend towards new highs above 101. The longer-term trend remains bullish as the weekly chart is confirmed and held above support.


usdx.jpg


The Dollar index reversed from the 61.8% retracement purple area. Now, it is trying to break above resistance of the red ichimoku cloud at 98-98.20. Breaking above this area will be a medium-term buy signal that will increase the chances of the bullish scenario. Support is found at 97. Breaking below 97 and a rejection at 98 is not something a bull would like to see.


usdxd.jpg


The weekly chart remains fully bullish with the price holding above the tenkan-sen and the Chikou span taking a positive slope. Bulls need to be cautious as the kijun-sen and tenkan-sen are flat. This week's candle is gpoing to be be important to see if we have a follow through the last week's reversal candle. I remain bullish as long as a weekly close is above the tenkan-sen.

Gold technical analysis for March 31, 2015

Gold price continued its downward move towards short-term support at $1,180-75 as expected. Now, it is testing the short-term support levels and bulls need to step in if they want to push the price back above $1,200. The longer-term trend remains bearish and the weekly chart makes me favor the bearish scenario towards $1,130 and lower.


goldh4.jpg


Short-term support is seen at $1,172 at the 61.8% retracement. This is also a lower boundary of the green Ichimoku cloud. As long as gold price is above that level, bulls have hope for an upward reversal.


goldd.jpg


Last week's high is important resistance as the price got rejected at the kijun-sen. We have a bearish crossing between the tenkan-sen and kijun-sen. If resistance at $1,220 is broken, we should expect gold price to move towards red cloud resistance at $1,250. Important long-term support is at $1,130. In case it gets broken, a medium-term move towards $1,000 and $900 can be expected.

Daily analysis of major pairs for March 31, 2015

EUR/USD: The EUR/USD pair has nearly forfeited all the bullish gains it got last week. The current near-term weakness in the market has put the extant bullish bias in jeopardy. There is a good possibility that things will go completely bearish if the price goes below the support lines at 1.0750 and 1.0700.


1.png


USD/CHF: This currency trading instrument continues to make its efforts to go upwards with some visible results. A movement above the resistance levels at 0.9800 and 0.9850 would mean the end of the current bearish bias and the beginning of a good bullish bias.


2.png


GBP/USD: The cable moved only sideways throughout last week, but the price started consolidating to the downside trying the accumulation territory at 1.4800. Currently, a long trade does not look as the best thing for this market, unless the price reaches the distribution territory around 1.5050, which seems a far cry now.


3.png


USD/JPY: The bullish effort is paying off. The price has gone above the demand level at 120.00. Now, there is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market. The next targets for bulls are located at the supply levels at 120.50 and 121.00. Those are the target for this week, because the bullish expectations are strong.


4.png


EUR/JPY: We would recommend to stay away from this cross until there is a vivid trending movement. The current situation on the market is a kind of dicey and one would need to wait to see where the coming momentum will take the price. Nevertheless, a movement to the upside is very likely.

Elliott wave analysis of EUR/NZD for March 31 - 2015

1427774176_2015-03-31-EURNZD-4H.png


Technical summary:


The expected upward rally is still on track. We are gathering strength to accelerate higher towards 1.4595 and much higher in the long term. In the short term, we expect minor support at 1.4389 to be able to protect the downside for a break above resistance at 1.4495 calling for acceleration to 1.4595 and above. A break below 1.4389 is likely to delay the expected upside pressure, but the potential downside should be limited to support at 1.4362.


Trading recommendation:


We are long EUR from 1.4335 and are going to keep our stop at 1.4275 for now. If you are not long EUR yet, buy closer to 1.4389 or upon a break above 1.4457 with the same stop at 1.4275.

Elliott wave analysis of EUR/JPY for March 31 - 2015

2015-03-31-EURJPY-4H.png


Technical summary:


As long as minor resistance at 131.51 protects the upside, we will be looking for more downside pressure. A break below support at 128.99 and more importantly a break below support at 128.33 will call for one final decline closer to 125.98 before the impulsive decline from 149.55 finally is over and a new impulsive rally can be expected. Only an unexpected break above 131.51 will indicate that wave C of the expanded flat correction, which we have been tracking since late December 2013 terminated at 126.87 and a new impulsive rally is already developing.


Trading recommendation:


We are short EUR from 129.85 with stop placed at 130.40. If you are not short EUR yet, then sell upon a break below 129.67 with the same stop.

Technical analysis and trading recommendation for Gold for March 31, 2015

Yellow metal slipped from 2-week highs and is trading below $1,200.00 mark after the Yellen's testimony. Chair Janet Yellen said she expects the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates this year. That subsequent increase will be gradual without following a predictable path. "I expect that conditions may warrant an increase in the federal funds rate target sometime this year,” she said.


After the initial increase, officials won't follow “any predetermined course of tightening" that involves similar-sized increases at regular intervals, Yellen said on a research conference sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, San Francisco, California March 27, 2015. Pending home sales in February increased to their highest level since June 2013 as sizeable gains in the Midwest and West were offset by smaller declines in the Northeast and South, according to the National Association of Realtors. These factors helped USD to rebound.


The metal price rejected at 20Wsma. Parallel support was found at $1,179.00. We recommend selling below $1,179.00 with targets at $1,176.00, $1,170.00, $1,167.00, and $1,164.00. Intraday resistance is seen at $1,191.00 and weekly resistance is seen at $1,197.00.Until the metal closes below $1,197.00 bears have the upper hand. The 20Dsma is found at $1,176.50. It is likely to lead to bears' grip in case the price closes below this level. In the hourly chart, lower lows and lower highs formation is expanding. Today, traders eye on consumer confidence index. In case of negative reading, the metal will extend its fall towards $1,176.50 and $1,168.00. It can bounce towards $1,194.00.


Trade:Selling below $1,179.00

Technical analysis and trading recommendation for EUR/USD for March 31, 2015

German CPI: the inflation rate in Germany is expected to be 0.3% in March 2015. Based on the results available so far, the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) also reports that the consumer prices are expected to increase by 0.5% on February 2015.


Spanish flash CPI: according to the flash estimate published by the INE, the annual inflation is 0.7% in March 2015. This indicator provides a preview of the CPI that would imply an increase of four-tenths in its annual rate. In February it changed by 1%. This increase is mainly explained by the increase in fuel prices (gas and diesel oil).


Upcoming events: Macro calendar offered a data-heavy day in the eurozone and European countries. Today, traders eye on German retail sales, unemployment change, French consumer spending, Italian unemployment change, CPI flash estimates, core CPI flash estimates, and unemployment rate. It's a big data for the euro. We are expecting another positive data from German and French.


Technical view: The US data dominated at yesterday's session. USD rebounds from the lower levels, pressured on its peers. The euro fell against USD at yesterday's session but managed to hold at 20Dsma. Parallel support is found at 1.0800 below this, 1.0768 will be crucial. In case the price closes below 1.0768, we can expect 150 more pips on the down side. The selling pressure is likely to be applied below 1.0800 and strong selling pressure will attack below 1.0768 with targets at 1.0700, 1.0650, and 1.0620.

Technical analysis of USD/JPY for March 30, 2015

USDJPYM30.png


Fundamental Outlook:
USD/JPY is expected to range-trade. It is undermined by the softer dollar sentiment and lower US Treasury yields (10-year at 1.948% versus 2.009% late Thursday) after a weaker-than-expected third estimate of the US Q4 GDP annual growth rate of +2.2% (versus forecast +2.4%). USD/JPY is also weighed by the Japanese exports. The USD sentiment is soothed by the stronger-than-expected US March UoM final consumer sentiment index of 93.0 (versus forecast 92.0). The USD/JPY downside is also limited by the diminished investor risk aversion (VIX fear gauge eased 4.62% to 15.07; S&P 500 closed up 0.24% at 2,061.02 Friday), demand from Japan's importers, and the ultra-loose Bank of Japan's monetary policy.


Technical comment:
The daily chart is mixed as the MACD is bearish, five-day moving average is below 15-day moving average and is declining. Stochastics is turned bullish at oversold levels.


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 120.30 and the second target at 120.55. In an alternative scenario, if the price moves below its pivot points, short positions are recommended with the first target at 118.85. A break of this target would push the pair further downwards, and one may expect the second target at 118.30. The pivot point is at 119.25.
