GOLD COULD RISE FACING SUPPORT

In past two months, Gold hasn't showed any clear direction. The price moved in a 50-dollar range trading between 1180 and 1230 dollars for one troy ounce of gold. As no clear direction has been established, the best strategy is to use Oscillators to capitalize on the oversold/overbought market conditions.

While precious metal broke above the ascending channel, it rejected the resistance level R3 (1231.36), which is 23.6% Fibonacci level applied to the channel breakout point. Currently, the price dropped back to the 61.8% Fibs supporting S1 (1204.92), which is rejected. At the same time, DeMarker Oscilator crossed the oversold line from above suggested short-term growth.

If gold continues to trade above the S2 (that is the lowest point below S1 support), consider buying the yellow metal near S1 (1204.92) targeting either R1 (1213) or R2 (1221) resistance levels. Only a daily close below S2 could send the price lower to test S3 (1195).

Support: 1204.92, 1201.36, 1194.79

Resistance: 1213.04, 1221.23, 1231.36

Technical analysis of USD/CHF for May 25, 2015

USDCHFH4.png

Overview:

  • In the long term, the USD/CHF pair is likely to set strong resistance at 0.9599 and support stands at 0.9321 today. The price is still moving around the key level of 0.9475 since the market opened. Moreover, the USD/CHF pair is still below the ratio of 50% of Fibonacci retracement levels. Additionally, the RSI calls for the downtrend. As a result, the price has already formed the strong resistance at this spot of 0.9599. The pair is approaching it in order to test it now. The USD/CHF pair is likely to get downside momentum rather convincing. The structure of the fall does not look corrective for indicating a bearish opportunity below 0.9599. It will a good sign to sell below 0.9599 with the first target at 0.9427(this level is coinciding with the daily pivot point) and it will call for the downtrend to continue towards 0.9321 (the weekly support 1).

Observations:

  • Major support is seen at the level of 0.9321.
  • Major resistance will set at the level of 0.9599.
  • We expect a new range up to 293 pips this week.
  • If the trend is upward, the strength of the currency will be defined as: USD is in an uptrend and CHF is in a downtrend.
  • Stop loss should never exceed your maximum exposure amounts.
  • As a rule, the market is highly volatile if the last day had huge volatility.

Technical analysis of USD/CAD for May 25, 2015

USDCADH4.png

Overview:

  • The price of the USD/CAD pair is continuing to show signs of strength following the break of resistance at the level of 1.2135 (23.6% of Fibonacci retracement levels). Also, it should be noted that the level of 1.2135 represents strong support in the H4 chart this week. Therefore, the USD/CAD pair resistance was broken and turned to support last week. Moreover, the pair has already formed the strong support at 1.2135. So, the market indicates a bullish opportunity in the area of 1.2135/1.2150 with a target at 1.2315 and continues toward the second resistance at the level of 1.2376. At the same time frame, the ratio of 50% Fibonacci retracement levels coincides with the level of 1.2376. If the trend breaks this level and closes below the key level (1.2130), it will be rather convincing downside momentum. The structure of the fall does not look corrective. So, the market will indicate a bearish opportunity at 1.2115. It will be a good sign to sell at this level with targets at 1.2027 (the support has already been placed at 1.2027) and 1.1919 in order to test the double bottom.

GOLDDaily25.png

GOLDM3025.png

Overview:

Gold has been trading sideways around the level of $1,205.00. The price supports cluster around the level of $1,201.00. We can observe weak price action in a volume just above the average in the daily time frame. The short-term trend is neutral. The daily resistance at the level of $1,224.00 held successfully. If the price breaks the level of $1,224.00 in a high volume and strong price action takes place, we may see possible testing at the level of $1,250.00 (Fibonacci expansion 100%). Anyway, I found strong trading range between the price of $1,214.00 and $1,201.00. I am waiting for a clear breakout with a high volume to confirm direction. We can observe sign of weakness (SOW) inside the trading range, which is a sign that this is more likely a redistribution.

Daily Fibonacci pivot points:

Resistance levels:

R1: 1,205.40

R2: 1,206.00

R3: 1,206.50

Support levels:

S1: 1,204.00

S2: 1,203.50

S3: 1,202.80

Trading recommendations: Be careful when buying gold below the price of $1,225.00.

Analysis of GBP/CAD for May 25, 2015

Following the downtrend from 1.9550 to 1.8146, which started at the level of 24.02.15 and ended at 17.04.15, GBP/CAD almost immediately switched to an uptrend. There was some sort of a range lasted for approximately two weeks, but then on the May 05, 2015 pair broke above the high.

Simultaneously GBP/CAD broke above the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level applied to the 15.02 high and 17.04 low. The quote continued to increase taking out both 50% and 61.8% Fibonacci retracement levels. Currently, the pair is trading near the 61.8% Fib level where the point of the uptrend trendline rejection (not for the first time).

All the facts are pointing to the validity of the uptrend and GBP/CAD could be getting ready for a next wave up. Consider buying GBP/CAD near S1 (1.0914), which is broken 61.8% Fibs resistance. Target should be near the previously established high near R1 (1.9550) as no other major obstacles are seen prior to this rate. The major support level is located near S2 (1.8847) and only clear break below could send the pair back to S3 (1.8698).

Support: 1.9014, 1.8847, 1.8682

Resistance: 1.9550

Technical analysis of EUR/JPY for May 25, 2015

General overview for 25/05/2015 10:00 CET

There is still no decisive breakout below the level of 133.09. So, we cannot be sure that the top at the level of 136.95 is the major swing top for a larger time frame cycle. It looks like the market is trying to definitely ensure this top is in place as the current wave progression looks very bearish. However, the intraday sub-wave might be considered slightly bullish as there is bullish divergence between the price and momentum oscillator. But the bias is still bearish in the larger perspective and lower lows are expected on this market.

Support/Resistance:

133.09 - Major Technical Support

133.30 - Intraday Support

133.48 - Technical Support

133.92 - Intrday Resistance

134.29 - Weekly Pivot

Trading recommendations:

As the market is approaching the major support level, it is advised to stay aside for a while and observe the market response. If the level holds, small corrective rally should be expected. That gives an opportunity to open sell orders ( levels 133.92 - 133.50). It it does not hold, selling on corrections up to the level of 133.09 is the way to trade on this market for now.

Technical analysis of USD/CAD for May 25, 2015

General overview for 25/05/2015 09:40 CET

AAccording to the main count, wave 5 impulsive structure to the upside had been completed. Now, it looks like it is time for a corrective cycle to begin. The support for this view comes with one of Elliott wave rules, that says that the length of wave 5 is very often equal to the length of the wave 1. This kind of relationship is shown in the current technical picture. There is still a slight possibility that the market will make one more marginal spike higher above the intraday resistance at the level of 1.2320 to complete an internal sub-wave -v. A break below the level of 1.2216 is likely to invalidate this view. Please notice that another confirmation of a short-term top comes from building bearish divergence between the price and the momentum oscillator. The first level of support is projected at 1.2146.

Support/Resistance:

1.2320 - Intraday Resistance

1.2256 - Intraday Support

1.2234 - Weekly Pivot

1.2146 - WS1

Trading recommendations:

Daytraders should consider opening sell orders as close to the level of 1.2320 as possible with a very tight SL ( 20-30 pips) and set TP orders at the level of 1.2256 with a possible extension downward to the level of 1.2234.

#USDX wave analysis for May 25, 2015

The Dollar index continues to move in an impulsive pattern higher breaking above March low at 96.15. This means that the upward bounce from 93.10 is not a wave 4. Most probably, we have seen the end of a three wave downward correction at 93.10 near the 38% retracement. What we expect now is a new upward move to push the price towards new highs.

usdx.jpg

Breaking above the cloud resistance and out of the downward sloping wedge were the initial signals of a trend reversal. The Dollar index has completed wave 5 upward move from 93.10 to 95.85. It was pulled back to 38% retracement and started a new upward wave to higher highs for the short-term. The fact that the pullback was so shallow is another sign of strength for the dollar.

usdxd.jpg

The Dollar index has overlapped the March low canceling any wave count that was implying. The decline from theFebruary highs is in 3 waves and completed. The bounce is impulsive and bulls are likely to test the Ichimoku cloud at 96.90-97. A breakout above this area will increase chances that the Dollar index will rally to new highs.

Gold technical analysis for May 25, 2015

Gold price remains above the short-term support level of $1,200 but the weekly trend remains trapped below $1,230 and above $1,180. Gold continues to move sideways but the overall picture is not promising. Unless we see a weekly close above $1,230, bulls should be very cautious.

gold.jpg

The short-term chart remains neutral as the price is moving sideways as shown above. The price is slightly below the Ichimoku cloud, something that could tip the balance in favor of the short positions. Resistance is found at $1,216 while support below $1,200 is found at $1,180.

goldd.jpg

The weekly chart remains bearish as the price remains below the Ichimoku cloud and below the kijun-sen. Support at $1,180 by the tenkan-sen is important. Up to now, we can see gold price to be found at kijun-sen as resistance that cannot be broken. Another rejection here could signal the end of the upward bounce from $1,169. I believe that we will see a break below the important support of $1,130 during the summer.

Technical analysis of EUR/USD for May 25, 2015

EUR/USD

The euro nosedived against USD at Friday's session after Mario Draghi's speech at the ECB's forum. Last week, the pair opened at 1.1450 and lost 4% by the end of the week. We have been repeatedly advised to book profit or sell with sl 1.1535 from May 14. We forecasted that the pair would be capped between 1.1480 and 1.1535. The pair made a high at 1.1465 and changed its direction towards south. The divergence between ECB and Federal Reserve favours bears in the long term. The ECB executive member said the Central Bank is likely to increase purchase of euro assets ahead of summer. Low-liquidity favor the euro bears. The FOMC minutes provided power to the dollar bulls. The Greek factor is the major bearish factor in the coming days. These fundamental factors made the pair favor selling on a rise. Greece was given four month extension to its bailout in February. On July 20, Greek bond will total 3.5 billion euros matures by the ECB.

Because of lack of economic data, the trading pattern will be driven by the news flow from the US. The Greek debt drama will be the main focus in coming days. Today, we expect soft movements owing to a bank holiday in France, Germany and US. On Friday, German retail sales m/m and Spanish flash CPI y/y were released. The recent German data provided the inconsistent growth.

Weekly technical view: The pair showed a 5-week winning streak lost 4% last week. The pair closed below 20Wsma. The pair closed below the strong support zone at 1.1050 and 1.1030 provided more strength to the euro bears. The pair broke the bearish head and shoulder pattern aiming at 1.0800 in coming days and at 1.0550 later. These factors favor further bearish views the coming days. The 1.1000 is seen at the fib 50.0 entire rise from a low to a high of 1.1465. These targets will be cancelled in case the bulls managed to close above 1.1210. The weekly support is found at 1.0940, which is the last hope for the euro bulls. The monthly gains completely erased.

Support: 1.0940, 1.0800, 1.0660

Resistance: 1.1120, 1.1210, 1.1285

Intraday: The pair has the nearest support finds at 1.1000, the 50.0 fib level entire rise from the lows. The last bulls' hope lies at 1.0940 50Dsma. A daily close below 1.0940, bears aim at 1.0860, 1.0820, and 1.0800 this week. Intraday trading pattern is found between 1.1050 and 1.0940. We advise to sell on a rise. When Monday's session opened, bears started selling below 1.1000 with targets at 1.0960 and 1.0945. We advise fresh selling below 1.0940 within the European and American sessions.

Support: 1.0940, 1.0900, 1.0860

Resistance: 1.1050, 1.1120, 1.1170

After 2 weeks of consolidation between 1.1940 and 1.1920 the pair is finally on a verge of a bullish breakout. On May 15, we advised bottoming in process was likely to hit 1.2300 and 1.2350.

The pair made a triple bottom at 1.2169 edging up higher towards the key trend-change level. The nearest resistance is seen between 1.2321 50Dsma and 1.2360 100Dsma. In case of a daily close above 1.2360, bulls will aim at a new high. Today, the pair has opened on a bullish note. Weekly support is found at 1.2169 and 1.2100. Weekly resistance is seen at 1.2400 20Dsma. A week close is above 1.2400, bulls aim at 1.2650 immediately.

The selling pressure will emerge below 1.2200 towards 1.2170 and 1.2150.

Technical analysis of EUR/JPY for May 25, 2015

EUR/JPY

The Greek factor drives the euro this week. BOJ monetary policy meeting minutes are due on Tuesday. The retail sales index y/y is expected to be published on Wednesday. Tokyo core CPI y/y and National core CPI y/y are due on Thursday. As Japanese retail sales have been disappointing for a while, we express the same view this time as well. The unemployment rate and national core CPI data are expected to be optimistic.

The cross rejected at 100Wsma again and erased most of its previous week's gains. Last Monday, on May 18, the cross rejected at 200Dsma. By the end of the week, it closed below 200D & Sma and 20Dsma. This was the fourth time the cross rejected at the same levels. The parallel support is found at 133.48 and 133.00 strong support seen at 132.67. The weekly support is found at 132.66 20Wsma. Bull's last hope lies at 131.15 50Dsma. Big distribution pattern and head and shoulder have been forming in the four-hour chart. In case the price closes below 133.00, we will conclude that the near and medium terms are capped. The cross favors selling on rise. The selling range is set between 134.75 and 135.15 sl 135.35.

Intraday: The cross has the nearest support found at 133.72, 133.46 and 133.10 are likely below this. Bulls' last hope lies at 133.00 for intraday. In case the price takes out 133.00, bears will aim at 132.40 and 131.75. Intraday resistance is seen at 134.22 and 134.55. In the four-hour chart, lower high formation was painted after 2 weeks. The cross made a double top in the H1 and H4 charts. Bears have a selling opportunity below 133.70 for a small target at 133.46. Real selling is below 133.45 towards 133.00. The panic will be triggered below 133.00 towards 132.35. Bulls have a minor buying opportunity above 134.15 aiming at 134.40. While the cross is tradeing below 135.55, use every rise to sell is the best strategy.EURJPYH4.png

Technical analysis of GBP/USD for May 25, 2015

GBP/USD

The cable got away from a 6-week high of 1.5815.Last week, the pair opened at 1.5746 and lost 1.7% by the end of the week. We have been repeatedly advised to book profit or sell with sl 1.5835 from May 14. We forecasted that the pair would be capped between 1.5800 and 1.1835. The pair made a high at 1.5815 and changed its direction towards south. Economic data published last week supported the pound and the lowest CPI was the laggard. Traders were willing to buy the pound on dips. After the UK election, the EU referendum is seen to be the next major event. Mr. Cameron pointed an earlier date in May 2016 then expected 2017.

This week is a data-light week on the UK macro front. The major data fall on Thursday, that is the second reading of GDP q/q. The week started with a bank holiday in the UK and US. We expect soft movements during today's trade.

Weekly technical view: The pair showed a 2-week winning streak lost 1.7% in the previous week. At Friday's session, the cable managed to hold the 20Dsma found at 1.5455 and a low made at 1.5461. The parallel support is found at 1.5446 and 1.5393 that is previous week's low. Before starting the next leg up, we expect the cable to touch 1.5330 and 1.5300. In case bulls lose control at 1.5300, another leg down is expected towards 1.5220 where buying is available. The cable favors buying on dips with sl 1.5100. Bottom fishing is seen between 1.5220 and 1.5150 with sl 1.5100. The cable closes below 200D&Ema favoring the near-term weakness and structural bullish view remains in play. We can observe minor distribution between 1.5700 and 1.5690. Until the cable closes below 1.5700, bears are likely to retest 1.5330 and 1.5300. This is just a normal technical correction after a big jump. The cable closed below the ascending trendline, started making lower high formation. The lower levels of 1.5220 and 1.5150 are expected in case the price closes below 1.5393.

Support: 1.5440, 1.5390, 1.5300

Resistance: 1.5575, 1.5655, 1.5700.

Intraday: The nearest support is found at 1.5446. Bears have a selling opportunity below 1.5440 aiming at 1.5390, 1.5355, 1.5340, and may be 1.5300. Intraday resistance is seen at 1.5525, 1.5600, and 1.5650. Until the price closes below 1.5700, bears have the upper hand. Bulls have a buying opportunity above 1.5525 aiming at 1.5538, 1.5570, and 1.5600. In the extreme case bulls can aim at 1.5660. Bulls will regain the strength above 1.5700.

Trade: Selling below 1.5440 buying above 1.5525

The USDX remains very strong in the bullish trend on the daily chart. It is also doing a consolidation above the support level of 95.74 with a target around the level of 96.97. If the index does a breakout in that zone, we could expect a rally towards the level of 98.08. The daily chart is already calling for more upside room for this week.

The last Friday was important for the current intraday structure of the USDX, because the index is already forming a higher high pattern above the support level of 96.21. Also, if the USDX does a consolidation above the 96.46 level, it would be expected to do a rally until the 96.90, which is an important high. The MACD indicator is in the overbought zone.

Daily analysis of major pairs for May 25, 2015

EUR/USD: A drop over 420 pips last week has established the weakness on the EUR/USD. There is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern on the market now: the price would go further downwards this week, testing the support lines at 1.0950 and 1.0900. More intense bearish pressure could even take the price beyond these support lines.

USD/CHF: This pair has turned bullish. The price trended upwards from the support level at 0.9150, testing the resistance level at 0.9450. That is a movement of 300 pips and further northward journey is possible. The only challenge to this expectation is a possible stamina in CHF.

GBP/USD: On the cable, the last week was characterized by serious battle between bulls and bears, but at the end of the week, the bears gained the upper hand. However, the recent bullish bias would be violated only when the accumulation territory at 1.5400 gets breached to the downside. The bullish bias is seriously threatened – it would be invalid only after the aforementioned accumulation territory is violated.

USD/JPY: The USD/JPY pair moved upward by 200 pips last week. The upward journey started at the demand level of 119.50 and it has gone beyond the demand level at 121.50. This bullish journey has put the end to the recent protracted equilibrium phase on the market: the price would continue its journey upwards as long as USD is strong.

EUR/JPY: The fate of this cross would continue to be determined largely by whatever happens to the euro. The current weakness on the market is caused by the weakness in the euro itself, and things have already turned bearish, the trend that could be sustained this week.
