Daily analysis of SILVER for August 19, 2015

SILVERH4.png

Overview

According to the attached H4 chart, Silver price broke the 15.00 level and closed the daily candlestick below it as the price completed forming a minor head and shoulders' pattern that appears on chart. It stops the recently suggested positive scenario and push the price to decline to test the 14.40 level mainly.

Therefore, the bearish bias will be suggested for the upcoming period as long as the price is below the 15.00 level supported by the EMA50, being aware that it is important to monitor the price behavior when reaching the 14.40 level as breaking it will extend silver price losses to reach 12.80 on the near-term basis.

Daily analysis of GBP/JPY for August 19, 2015

GBPJPYH4.png

Overview

According to the shown H4 chart, intraday bias in GBP/JPY remains neutral for the moment. A rebound from 184.95 might extend. But we'd expect strong resistance from 195.86 to limit upside and bring a reversal. At this point, we're holding on to the view that consolidation pattern from 195.86 is not completed yet. A break of 190.99 will start the third leg of the consolidation and will target the 184.95 support.

Daily Pivots: (S1) 193.79; (P) 194.53; (R1) 195.54;

EURNZDH419.png

Overview:

Recently, EUR/NZD has been moving downwards. As we expected, the price tested the level of 1.6855 in a high volume. In the daily time frame, we can observe a supply bar in a volume below the average. According to the H4 chart, we have an absorption volume in the background (short-term buying looks very risky). We may expect continuation of downward movement if the price breaks strong support at the level of 1.6800. According to Wyckoff analysis, the price is building a potential strong distribution (selling). Intraday frames are favoring sellers as well.

Fibonacci Pivot Points :

Resistance levels:

R1: 1.6815

R2: 1.6850

R3: 1.6915

Support levels:

S1: 1.6690

S2: 1.6650

S3: 1.6590

Trading recommendations: Watch only for selling opportunities if the price breaks the level of 1.6800 in a high volume.

Gold analysis for August 19 , 2015

GOLDDaily19.png

GOLDM3019.png

Overview:

Since our last analysis, gold has been trading upwards. According to the daily time frame, we can observe a neutral bar (doji) in a volume below the average. According to the 30M time frame, we can observe a volume spike (buying climax) with a wide-range bar at the price of $1,121.00, which is a sign that buying gold at this stage looks risky. According to Wyckoff analysis, we have strong accumulation and bottoming on gold, so watch only for buying opportunities on the dips (after bearish corrections). Anyway, to confirm further bullish movement, the price needs to break the level of $1,122.70 in a high volume. Intraday looks very risky for buying but the short term got a large sign of strength in the background.

Daily Fibonacci pivot points:

Resistance levels

R1: 1,119.80

R2: 1,122.60

R3: 1,127.17

Support levels:

S1: 1,110.75

S2: 1,107.00

S3: 1,103.00

Trading recommendations: Be careful when buying gold at this stage. Intraday selling opportunities are preferable.

Technical analysis of USD/CAD for August 19, 2015

USDCADH4.png

Overview:

  • The trend of the USD/CAD pair is going to turn to bullish sentiment from the level of 1.2976. Additionally, the price of 1.2976 is coinciding with the double bottom and the ratio of 78.6% Fibonacci retracement levels on the four-hour chart. Accordingly, it will be a good sign to buy above 1.2976 with the first target of 1.3130 to test a minor resistance at this price and it should be noted that the price of 1.3130 is representing the weekly pivot point. Besides, it will call for an uptrend in order to continue its bullish movement towards 1.3207 (double bottom). Equally important, the resistance will be set at the 1.3207 level. So, it will be very useful to take profit at this spot. At the same time, the stop loss should be placed below the double bottom at the price of 1.2643. On the other hand, as it is known, sellers are asking for a higher price as well as buyers are bidding at a lower price. Therefore, the first key level will be at the level of 1.3207; and the second key level, at the 1.3130 level for August 19, 2015. Moreover, the level of 1.3207 is representing the resistance and the 1.2976 level is going to act as the support. Additionally, the price of the USD/CAD pair has been still moving between 1.3207 and 1.2976.

Observations:

  • The range today will be about 231 pips (1.3207 and 1.2976) this week. Another thought: the stop loss has been set in 77 pips. Consequently, the risk of 77 pips should make a profit of 231 pips.
  • The trend was very clear and indicating an uptrend, but on the H1 chart, the trend will call in bearish market from the double top at 1.3207 in the short term.

Technical analysis of AUD/USD for August 19, 2015

AUDUSDH4.png

Short overview:

  • The AUD/USD pair is still moving between the levels of 0.7459 and 0.5215. So the weekly pivot point will be set at the level of 0.7364. Moreover, the weekly point has already formed a minor resistance at this area because the strong resistance has already been set at 0.7459. Therefore, sell at the level of 0.7459/0.7364 with the first target at the 0.7292 price, then it will call for a downtrend in order to continue its bullish movement towards 0.7215 in order to represent the double top. Nevertheless, the stop loss should be placed at the level of 1.6550. If the trend fails to close above the level of 0.7459, it will be a good sign to buy at this level in the short term with targets at 0.7495. Then it is going to continue towards the 0.7534 price.

Outlook in the long term:

  • On the H4 and daily charts, we expect that the trend is going to call for the bearish market at the level of 0.7534 and 0.7459 (the monthly pivot point). As a result, sell at the price of 0.7534/.7459 with the first target of 0.7215, it might resume to 0.7160 with a view to form a new double bottom. On the other hand, your stop loss should be placed above the 0.7534 level, hence it will be good to set it at the price of 0.7568 this week.

Technical analysis of EUR/NZD for August 19, 2015

EUR/NZD correction down

After forming a double top near 1.71, EUR/NZD formed a bearish divergence on the DeMarker oscillator signaling the potential correction or reversal to the downside. Although, the price rejected 200 Moving Average multiple times, it could be on its way to test it once again.

It seems that previous resistance R1 (1.6786) is still valid since it's being rejected today once again. Overall, it is likely that price will consolidate between already established support and resistance levels R1 and S1 - that is also Fibonacci resistance level applied to the last wave up (13.08 low and 14.08 high).

Consider selling EUR/NZD on any minor pullbacks while it is trading near R1, targeting S1 (1.6600-1.6550 area). Since it is a counter-trend trade, a tight stop loss should be used just above R1 high - 1.6815.

Support: 1.6593

Resistance: 1.6786

Global macro overview for 19/08/2015

Global macro overview for 19/08/2015:

The most important event of the day will be CPI inflation figures release at 12:20 pm GMT and the FOMC meeting minutes release at 6:00 pm GMT. The Consumer Price Index for the month of July is expected to decrease slightly to 0.2% m/m on a monthly basis, but it should increase to 0.2% on year-to-year basis. Any better than expected inflation data today might start another wave of September rate hike speculations as the recent Fed meeting was not followed by a press conference and the statement was rather terse. However, Fed chairwoman Janet Yellen has quite often hinted at the possible rate hike this year as it would enable the US economy to gradually and smoothly return to the path of interest rates normalization without risking any economic turbulence from raising the rates sharply to pre-2008 levels. Nevertheless, please notice that the Fed members' point of view about rising the interest rates might be somewhat outdated now as new economic events took place since the last meeting. The most important would be the yuan depreciation in China and the following risk of creating the yuan a more free-market depended and regulated currency by the People's Bank of China.

The technical situation on the EUR/USD pair is rather stable as the market awaits the Fed minutes release. The immediate support comes at the level of 1.1000 and resistance at the level of 1.1129.

Technical analysis of GBP/USDfor August 19, 2015

Since July 15, GBP/USD has been consolidating in the 200-pip range 1.5460 to 1.5660. While the price was moving sideways, the RSI oscillator has been moving upwards within the ascending channel signaling on a potential uptrend continuation.

On August 7, the pair formed a double bottom near 1.5660 and at the same time rejected ascending channel slightly. The longer-term uptrend has also been rejected, but the shorter-term downtrend trendline has been broken. Finally, yesterday, GBP/USD managed to make a new higher high that could bring in more buyers.

Consider buying GBP/USD this week on any minor pullbacks while the price is below R1 (1.5688). The target area is between the previously formed top on the 18.06 (1.5930) and 161.8% retracement level of the Fibonacci applied to the last corrective wave down (29.07 high and 07.08 low). A tight stop loss at the S1 low (1.5561) should be used.

Support: 1.5587

Resistance: 1.5688, 1.5851, 1.5930

Global macro overview for 19/08/2015

Global macro overview for 19/08/2015:

The sterling rallied yesterday after inflation data beat expectations. Moreover, the market now might anticipate a more probable BoE interest rate hike in the coming months. The core inflation peaked at a five-moth high, while the consumer inflation rose 0,1% instead of staying flat at 0%. In his latest economic outlook, BoE governor Mark Carney stated that the inflation will remain low or flat until the end of the year as the British pound speculations could persist a little longer. Nevertheless, leaving the rates at a low level in order to wait for the BoE 2% inflation target would not be healthy for the UK economic recovery in the long term, so the BoE might wait for the US Fed to raise the rates first and then follow up.

The technical picture of GBP/USD is getting more clear now as the demand break-through zone has been finally violated. If the bullish sentiment persists, this pair should soon test the next resistance at the level of 1.5790.

Technical analysis of EUR/JPY for August 19, 2015

General overview for 19/08/2015 09:50 CET

This pair is currently trading at the edge of the bullish zone. It is about to enter the neutral/corrective zone if the intraday support at the level of 137.06 is violated again. The current count might then evolve to WXYXXZ brown alternative count, typical for more complex and time-consuming corrections. For now, the golden trend line is generating the dynamic resistance and the market is trading inside the golden channel.

Support/Resistance:

136.72 - WS1

137.06 - Intraday Support

137.57 - Intraday Resistance

137.78 - Weekly Pivot

Trading recommendations:

Daytraders should consider opening sell orders from current price levels with SL above the level of 137.69 and TP at the level of 136.80.

Technical analysis of USD/CAD for August 19, 2015

General overview for 19/08/2015 09:30 CET

The three sub-wave corrective cycles to the downside are almost completed as wave c purple is about to hit support at the level of 1.3015. Nevertheless, the overall corrective cycle has not been completed yet as we are expecting another push lower, just below the last wave W brown at the level of 1.2951. The market is still trading inside the neutral/range zone between the levels of 1.2858 - 1.3211. Only a clear impulsive breakout above/below one of this levels would change the current scenario.

Support/Resistance:

1.3058 - Intraday Resistance

1.3079 - Weekly Pivot

1.3015 - Intraday Support

1.2975 - WS1

Trading recommendations:

Yesterday's sell zone level has not been hit ( high was 1.3124), but the general direction was correct. Currently, daytraders should wait for a better opportunity to occur after corrective sub-cycle is completed.

USDX technical analysis for August 19, 2015

The Dollar index got rejected at the Ichimoku cloud resistance as expected. Price has turned lower towards the kijun-sen support and we have a short-term reversal signal. The back test of the break down is complete and I believe we should start a new downward move towards 95 at least.

usdx.jpg

As can be seen in the 4-hour chart above,the Dollar index has reached the 97.15 resistance area by the Ichimoku cloud and got rejected. This is

a bearish signal. Resistance is at 97.15. Support is at the kijun-sen (yellow indicator) at 96.55.

usdxd.jpg

Red line - resistance

Green line - support

The weekly chart continues to show price trapped inside the triangle. If we look closer, price is now also trapped between the kijun- and tenkan-sen indicators. I believe price will eventually push towards the lower triangle boundary at the green trend line support. A break above the triangle will be a buy signal for me with new highs as target.

Gold technical analysis for August 19, 2015

Gold price has reached the 38% Fibonacci retracement and found support. Price is now giving some short-term bullish signals targeting new short-term highs above $1,130. Important short-term support is at $1,116. If broken, we could see a new lower low below $1,110 towards $1,100.

goldh4.jpg

Red line - resistance

Gold price touched the 38% retracement, held above the Ichimoku cloud in the 4-hour chart as shown above and is now breaking above the red downward sloping trend line. Next resistance is the previous highs at $1,127. Support is at $1,116. If broken, we should expect Gold to test the 61.8% retracement.

goldd.jpg

Blue area - resistance

Gold weekly chart remains longer-term bearish as price remains below the Ichimoku cloud but price is bouncing as I have been expecting for the last two weeks. Bounce target is the tenkan-sen and next at the kijun-sen. In general, I would expect price to find resistance on the blue area.

Daily analysis of major pairs for August 19, 2015

EUR/USD: The EUR/USD pair did not move very much yesterday. The little movement that was seen was towards the downside in the context of an uptrend. For the current bullish outlook to become illogical, the support lines at 1.1000 and 1.0950 must be broken to the downside: otherwise the price could make some renewed bullish attempts.

1.png

USD/CHF: This pair continues to move sideways while the overall outlook is bullish. What can invalidate the bullish outlook is an event in which the price closes below the support level at 0.9650. But in case it does not happen, this week can see some considerable bullish attempts, especially if the USD tries to amass lots of stamina. Right now the market is flat.

2.png

GBP/USD: At last, the GBP/USD pair has succeeded in going above the defiant accumulation territory at 1.5650. The price was able to close above that accumulation territory, trying to go towards the distribution territory at 1.5700, which has been tested but yet to be breached to the upside.

3.png

USD/JPY: There is no dominant trend in the market, but it is expected that the price would either go above the supply level at 125.50 or below the demand level at 123.50 when a breakout occurs (following the current sideways movement). Should this happen, that would mean a strong bullish or bearish outlook.

4.png

EUR/JPY: This cross has continued its weakness, but the Bullish Confirmation Pattern is not totally invalid. It would be OK to stay away from this market - the EMA 11 is not below the EMA 56 and the RSI period 14 is not below the level 50. There are mixed signals.

Elliott wave analysis of EUR/NZD for August 19 - 2015

2015-08-19-EURNZD-D.png

Technical summary:

We can consider a nice five-wave rally complete at the 1.7103 high. Therefore, we will be looking for a correction towards wave four of one or two to some degree. The first wave four of a smaller degree is found at 1.6337, which also marks the 23.6% corrective target, while the wave low of two smaller degrees is found at 1.6035 just above the 38.2% corrective target at 1.5864.

In the short term, we will be looking for minor resistance near 1.6877 and again at 1.6931, which we expect will protect the upside for the next decline towards the first corrective target at 1.6337.

Trading recommendation:

We will sell EUR at 1.6920 with a stop placed at 1.7110, but expect to be able to move the stop lower quickly.

Elliott wave analysis of EUR/JPY for August 19 - 2015

2015-08-19-EURJPY-4H.png

Technical summary:

Red wave iv found support right at the inverse S/H/S neckline, but should stay above important support at 136.49 (the top of red wave i) for the next impulsive rally higher to 139.41 as the ideal target for red wave v and wave iii.

In the short term, we will be looking for a break above minor resistance at 137.90 as the first strong indication that red wave v is unfolding for a rally towards 139.46.

Trading recommendation:

We bought EUR at 137.45 with stop placed at 136.45. If you are not long EUR yet, then buy a during break above 137.39 with the same stop at 136.45.

Technical analysis of USD/JPY for August 19, 2015

USDJPYM30.png

USD/JPY is expected to trade with a bearish bias. With the U.S. dollar index currently trading at 96.962, the U.S. dollar held firm overnight thanks to solid U.S. housing data while U.S. stocks edged lower. The U.S. government reported that housing starts increased 0.2% on-month in July to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.21 million, the highest level since October 2007. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.2% to 17511.34, the S&P 500 lost 0.3% to 2096.92, and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 0.6% to 5059.35. Crude oil bounced 1.8% to $42.62 a barrel, gold slid 0.1% to $1,117.10 an ounce, while the 10-year Treasury yield climbed to 2.196% from 2.150% a day earlier. Regarding USD/JPY, the pair has narrowed its trading range to between the key resistance at 124.60 and the first downside target at 124.15. It is overlapping with the 20- and 50-period intraday moving averages. At the same time, the intraday RSI is around the neutrality level of 50 and lacking momentum. As long as the key resistance at 124.60 is not surpassed, expect choppy price action with a bearish bias. The second downside target is now set at 124.00 (the low of August 14).

Trading recommendations:

The pair is trading below its pivot point. It is likely to trade in a lower range as long as it remains below the pivot point. Short positions are recommended with the first target at 124. A break of that target will move the pair further downwards to 123.75. The pivot point stands at 124.60. In case the price moves in the opposite direction and bounces back from the support level, it will move above its pivot point. It is likely to move further to the upside. According to that scenario, long positions are recommended with the first target at 125 and the second target at 125.25.

Resistance levels: 125 125.25 125.60

Support levels: 124 123.75 123.50

Technical analysis of USD/CHF for August 19, 2015

USDCHFM30.png

USD/CHF is expected to trade with a bearish bias below 0.9800. The pair remains under pressure below the key resistance at 0.9800. Meanwhile, the intraday RSI indicator is lacking upward momentum. In this outlook, as long as 0.9800 is not surpassed, the risk of the break below the first downside target at 0.9715 remains high. The second downside target is set at 0.9660 (August 12's low).

Trading recommendations:

The pair is trading below its pivot point. It is likely to trade in a lower range as long as it remains below the pivot point. Short positions are recommended with the first target at 0.9715. A break of that target will move the pair further downwards to 0.9660. The pivot point stands at 0.98. In case the price moves in the opposite direction and bounces back from the support level, it will move above its pivot point. It is likely to move further to the upside. According to that scenario, long positions are recommended with the first target at 0.9860 and the second target at 0.9940.

Resistance levels: 0.9860 0.9940 0.9995

Support levels: 0.9715 0.9660 0.9635

Technical analysis of NZD/USD for August 19, 2015

NZDUSDM30.png

NZD/USD is expected to trade with a bullish bias above 0.6555. The pair remains supported by an intraday rising trend line and is likely to post a new rebound to challenge 0.6605 in sight. The intraday RSI is mixed to bullish, while the 20- and 50-period MAs is still in an uptrend. Meanwhile, a strong support base around 0.6555 has formed, which should prevent any downside risk. Therefore, as long as 0.6555 is not broken, upside targets are set at 0.6605 and 0.6625.

Trading recommendations:

The pair is trading above its pivot point. It is likely to trade in a wider range as long as it remains above its pivot point. As long as the price holds above its pivot point, long positions are recommended with the first target at 0.6605 and the second target at 0.6630. In the alternative scenario, short positions are recommended with the first target at 0.6530 if the price moves below its pivot points. A break of this target is likely to push the pair further downwards, and one may expect the second target at 0.6510. The pivot point is at 0.6540.

Resistance levels: 0.6605 0.6630 0.6675

Support levels: 0.6530 0.6510 0.6480

Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for August 19, 2015

GBPJPYM30.png

GBP/JPY is expected to trade in a higher range. The pair is capped by its 20-period intraday MA and is looking for a higher target. The descending 50-period intraday MA also maintains a bearish bias. And the intraday RSI stays below 50 and is negatively oriented. The first target to the upside is therefore set at the horizontal resistance and overlap at 195.30. A break below this level would open the way to further weakness towards 195.30 in extension. Only a break above the key support at 194.40 would call for a further upward move towards August 17's low at 194.10.

Trading recommendations:

The pair is trading above its pivot point. It is likely to trade in a wider range as long as it remains above its pivot point. As long as the price holds above its pivot point, long positions are recommended with the first target at 195.30 and the second target at 196.05. In the alternative scenario, short positions are recommended with the first target at 194.10 if the price moves below its pivot points. A break of this target is likely to push the pair further downwards, and one may expect the second target at 193.80. The pivot point is at 194.40.

Resistance levels: 195.30 196.05 196.75

Support levels: 194.10 193.80 193

Technical analysis of Silver for August 19, 2015

Technical outlook and chart setups:

Silver had dropped lower into $14.70 levels, just below its 50-day moving average, before pulling back higher again. Besides, please note that the drop has stalled at the fibonacci 0.618 support of the rally between $14.40 and $15.60 levels respectively. Furthermore, the backside of the resistance line is being tested for now. It is hence recommended to initiate long positions again with risk at $14.40 levels for now. Immediate support is seen at $14.70 levels (interim), followed by $14.40 and lower, while resistance is seen at $15.60 levels (interim), followed by $15.90, $16.40 and higher respectively.

Trading recommendations:

Initiate long positions, stop at $14.40, a target $16.40.

Good luck!
