Technical analysis of USD/JPY for October 21, 2016

USDJPYM30.png

USD/JPY is under pressure. The pair recorded a succession of lower tops and lower bottoms, which confirmed a bearish outlook. The descending 50-period moving average acts as resistance, which should continue to push the prices lower. Furthermore, 104.20 represents a key resistance, and the upside potential should be limited by this level. In these perspectives, as long as this level is not broken above, the pair is likely to pull back to its next level at 103.15 and even 102.75 in extension.

Trading Recommendation: 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 103.15. A break below this target will move the pair further downwards to 102.75. The pivot point stands at 104.20. 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 103.15 and the second one at 102.75.

Resistance levels: 104.50, 104.85, 105.35

Support levels: 103.15, 102.75, 102.40

Technical analysis of USD/CHF for October 21, 2016

USDCHFM30.png

USD/CHF is expected to trade with bullish bias. The pair broke above its 20-period and 50-period moving averages, which are playing support roles now, and is holding on the upside. The relative strength index is above its neutrality level at 50 and lacks downward momentum. Additionally, 0.9915 is playing the key support role, which should limit the downside potential. U.S. and German government bonds saw increased demand after European Central Bank President Mario Draghi revealed that policy makers had not discussed tapering bond purchases. The benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury yield eased to 1.745% from 1.752% Wednesday. Meanwhile, the 10-year German bund yield sank to 0.004% from 0.032% a day earlier.

As long as this key level is not broken, look for a further upside toward 0.9970 and 1.000 in extension.

Resistance levels: 0.9970, 1.0000, 1.0075

Support levels: 0.9895, 0.9870, 0.9850

Technical analysis of NZD/USD for October 21, 2016

NZDUSDM30.png

NZD/USD is under pressure. The pair shows further downside potential after its downward breakout of a rising trend line (since Oct 18), which confirms a negative view. The declining 20-period and 50-peirod moving averages are playing resistance roles and maintain the downside bias. The relative strength index is capped by a bearish trend line, which emerged on Oct 18, and is below its neutrality level at 50. As long as 0.7205 holds on the upside, look for a further drop toward 0.7125 and 0.7095 in extension.

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 0.7125. A break below this target will move the pair further downwards to 0.7095. The pivot point stands at 0.7205. 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 0.7230 and the second one at 0.7250.

Resistance levels: 0.7230, 0.7250, 0.7280

Support levels: 0.7125, 0.7095, 0.7070

Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for October 21, 2016

GBPJPYM30.png

GBP/JPY is capped by a declining trend line. The technical picture of GBP/JPY is bearish below a descending trend line, which emerged on Oct 19. The declining 50-period moving average suggests that the pair still has potential for a further drop. Additionally, the relative strength index is below its neutrality level at 50 and lacks upward momentum. As long as 127.30 holds on the upside, look for a further drop toward 125.90. A break below this level would call for a further decline toward 125.25.

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 125.90. A break below this target will move the pair further downwards to 125.25. The pivot point stands at 127.30. 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 127.60 and the second one at 127.90.

Resistance levels: 127.60, 127.90, 128.70

Daily analysis of GBP/JPY for October 21, 2016

GBPJPYH4.png

Overview

The GBP/JPY pair showed sideways trading again without any attempts to record the expected targets. The current sideways trading caused by the necessity of the negative momentum makes us expect more of the sideways fluctuation. Let us remind you that the stability of the resistance at 129.60 is important to keep our negative scenario valid in the upcoming period. Therefore, wait until the price reaches the targets at 124.60 and 120.90. Stochastic provides new negative signal to attempt a decline below 50 level which can help the price gather the required momentum then begin to hit the suggested targets. The expected trading range for today is between 128.15 and 124.60.

Daily analysis of USD/JPY for October 21, 2016

USDJPYH4.png

Overview

The USD/JPY pair has been trading positively since yesterday. It surpassed 104.00 barrier and settled above it, which supports continuation of our bullish trend expectations efficiently for the upcoming period. The way is open for the price to head towards our main target located at 106.63. Therefore, we are waiting for more positive trading on the intraday and short term basis. Note that breaking the 102.85 level will invalidate the positive scenario temporarily and push the price to test 100.70 areas before any new attempt to rise. The expected trading range for today is between 103.20 support and 105.50 resistance.

EUR/NZD analysis for October 21, 2016

analytics580a1987b32d2.png

Recently, EUR/NZD has been moving sideways at the price of 1.5190. On the 30M time frame I found strong weakness in the background and wide spread of the bar. Be careful when buying EUR/NZD at this stage and watch for selling opportunties. There is broken upward trendline on the backgorund, which is a sign for potential lower price. First downward target is set at the price of 1.5170 and the second one is at the price of 1.5135.

NZD/USD Intraday technical levels and trading recommendations for October 21, 2016

analytics580a15e07cc26.png

On May 30, obvious bullish rejection was expressed around the price level of 0.6675 (lower limit of the depicted channel). That is why the recent bullish breakout is taking place above 0.6860.

As long as the NZD/USD pair kept trading above 0.6860, further bullish advance was expected towards the upper limit of the depicted channel around 0.7400.

On July 12, the price zone of 0.7350 - 0.7400 (upper limit of the depicted channel) enhanced a quick bearish decline towards the price levels of 0.6960 where the recent bullish swing was initiated.

Recently, the price zone between 0.7470-0.7500 has corresponded to the upper limit of the depicted movement channel where bearish rejection and a valid SELL entry were expressed few weeks ago.

The price zone between 0.6960-0.6860 constitutes a significant support zone to be watched for a valid BUY entry if any bearish pullback extends below 0.7100.

On the other hand, the mark of 0.7245 was a prominent Key-Level to determine the next destination for the NZD/USD pair.

As anticipated, evident bearish rejection around 0.7250 constituted a valid SELL signal (already running in profits). Initial T/P levels should be located at 0.7070 and 0.6970.

Intraday technical levels and trading recommendations for GBP/USD for October 21, 2016

analytics580a146856415.pnganalytics580a14c179012.png

The price zone between 1.3845 and 1.3550 (historical bottoms in January 2009) was considered a significant demand zone to be watched for bullish recovery.

However, by the end of June, a significant bearish breakdown below 1.3550 was expressed as seen on the depicted charts (fundamental reasons).

Bearish persistence below the demand level at 1.3550 enhanced the bearish scenario towards the current price levels around 1.2700 (nearest bearish projection target).

Note that the GBP/USD pair was trapped inside the depicted consolidation range above 1.2700 until a bearish breakout took place on October 6.

Daily persistence below 1.2700 confirms the bearish Flag pattern.

A bearish projection target would be located around 1.2020 if enough bearish pressure is maintained below 1.2700.

On the other hand, any bullish pullback towards 1.2700 should be considered for a valid SELL entry. S/L should be set as daily closure above 1.2700.

Intraday technical levels and trading recommendations for EUR/USD for October 21, 2016

analytics580a123f027e2.png

In January 2015, the EUR/USD pair moved below the major demand levels near 1.2100 where historical bottoms were previously set in July 2012 and June 2010. Hence, a long-term bearish target was projected towards 0.9450.

In March 2015, the EUR/USD bears challenged the next monthly demand level around 1.0570, which had been previously reached in August 1997.

Later in April 2015, a strong bullish recovery was observed around the mentioned demand level. However, next monthly candlesticks (September, October, and November 2015) reflected a strong bearish rejection around the area of 1.1400-1.1500.

Again in February 2016, the depicted price levels around 1.1400-1.1500 acted as a significant supply zone during the bullish pullback.

That is why, recent bearish rejection was expected around the depicted supply levels (note the monthly candlesticks of May, June, and August 2016).

In the long term, the level of 0.9450 will remain a projected bearish target if the current monthly candlestick comes to close below the depicted monthly demand level of 1.0570.

analytics580a124aed0c5.png

The long-term outlook for the EUR/USD pair remains bearish as the monthly chart illustrates. Bearish fixation below 1.1000 is needed to enhance this bearish scenario.

On August 16, temporary bullish breakout was expressed above the price zone of 1.1250 (supply level 1). However, significant bearish rejection was seen on August 26.

On September 6, weak bullish recovery and a temporary bullish breakout above 1.1250 were expressed again, but evident bearish pressure was applied on the EUR/USD pair on September 16.

The recent bearish closure below 1.1250 (Supply Level-1) maintained enough bearish pressure and enhanced the bearish momentum towards the price level of 1.0990 (Key-Level 1).

Bullish rejection was expected around the price level of 1.0990 (Key Level-1). However, extensive bearish pressure and significant bearish closure below 1.0900 was expressed.

Daily persistence below 1.0990 allows a quick bearish decline towards 1.0825 (key level 2) where price action should be considered for a valid BUY entry.

Global macro overview for 21/10/2016

Global macro overview for 21/10/2016:

Britain's retail sector data released yesterday were worse than expected. Market participants had expected a 0.3% increase in retail sales from 0.0% a month ago, but there was no increase at all this month. Moreover, on a yearly basis the retail sales increased only 4.1% compared to a 6.6% advance in August and analysts' expectations for a 4.9% gain. Meanwhile, clothing and footwear sales lost 2.8% after prices skyrocketed 5.2%, showing the biggest jump in six years. It is worth to note, that the UK enjoyed one of the warmest Septembers on record, thus people was not obliged to buy autumn clothes. In conclusion, the data suggest the economy is still influenced by consumer spending, which might be overall beneficial as retail sales contribute 0.1% to gross domestic product in the third quarter.

Let's now take a look at the GBP/USD technical picture at the intraday time frame. The price action looks clearly range-bounded as no important support/resistance level has been violated yet and the market is wobbling around all hourly moving averages.The next support is seen at the level of 1.2208 and the next resistnace is seen at the level of 1.2333.

Technical analysis of NZD/USD for October 21, 2016

NZDUSDH1.png

Overview:

  • The NZD/USD pair continues to move downwards from the level of 0.7215, which represents the double top in the H1 chart. The pair fell from the level of 0.7215 to the bottom around 0.7164. Today, the first resistance level is seen at 0.7175 followed by 0.7215, while daily support is seen at the levels of 0.7148 and 0.7119. According to the previous events, the NZD/USD pair is still trapped between the levels of 0.7175 and 0.7119. The first resistance is seen at 0.6790, for that if the NZD/USD pair fails to break through the resistance level of 0.7175, the market will decline further to 0.7148. This would suggest a bearish market because the RSI indicator is still in a negative area and does not show any trend-reversal signs. The pair is expected to drop lower towards at least 0.7120 in order to test the second support (0.7119). On the contrary, if a breakout takes place at the resistance level of 0.7215 (the double top), then this scenario may become invalidated.

Daily key levels:

  • Major resistance:0.7175
  • Minor resistance:0.7175
  • Intraday pivot point:0.7148
  • Minor support:0.7119
  • Major support:0.7085

Global macro overview for 21/10/2016

Global macro overview for 21/10/2016:

There were no surprises from the ECB yesterday as the bank has left the interest rates, deposit facility rate and marginal lending facility all unchanged. This means the bank's asset-purchase program (QE) has been left unchanged and during the press conference the ECB head Mario Draghi made dovish comments. The current key question for the global investors is when the ECB is planning to make a decision to extend the QE program that ends in March 2017. The most probable date is December 2017, just after the anticipated FED meeting will take place. The other reason to expect the ECB to take action in December is the inflation increase in the recent months.Despite the fact that the inflation gains remains well below the ECB's inflation target of just below 2.0%, the ECB may opt to raise QE levels in December in order to raise inflation.

Let's now take a look at the EUR/USD technical picture at 4H time frame. After the ECB decision, the initial rally has been faded and new low has been made. The support at the level of 1.0911 has been violated and now the next support is seen at the level of 1.0821. Bears are in full control over this market, but the sell-off is losing momentum, so internal correction is now due.

Technical analysis of USD/CHF for October 21, 2016

USDCHFH4.png

Overview:

  • The USD/CHF pair broke resistance, which turned into strong support at 0.9884. Right now, the pair is trading above this level. It is likely to trade in a higher range as long as it remains above the support (0.9884), which is expected to act as a major support today. Therefore, there is a possibility that the USD/CHF pair will move upwards and the structure does not look corrective. The trend is still above the 100 EMA for that the bullish outlook remains the same as long as the 100 EMA is headed to the upside. From this point of view, the first resistance level is seen at 0.9962 followed by 1.0035, while daily support 1 is seen at 0.9884. According to the previous events, the USD/CHF pair is still moving between the levels of 0.9884 and 1.0035. Consequently, buy above the level of 1.0035 with the first target at 0.9962 so as to test the daily resistance 1 and further to 1.0035. Besides, the level of 1.0035 is a good place to take profit because it will form a new double top (161.8% Fibonacci retracement). On the contrary, in case a reversal takes place and the USD/CHF pair breaks through the support level of 0.9884, a further decline to 0.9780 can occur, which would indicate a bearish market. Overall, we still prefer the bullish scenario, which suggests that the pair will stay above the zone of 0.9884 today.

Daily analysis of major pairs for October 21, 2016

EUR/USD: After a volatile Thursday, this pair was able to trend further southwards. There is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, which would bring price towards the support lines at 1.0900 and 1.0850. However, this would not be without some noticeable opposition from bears.

1477036350_1.png

USD/CHF: After a long siege, the USD/CHDF pair was able to go above the resistance level at 0.9900. The next target could be another resistance level at 0.9950. There is a bullish signal in the market, and bulls would be able to prevent any major pullback today.

2.png

GBP/USD: Right now, the Cable is consolidating. There is a need for price to go up by at least, 1000 pips, before there can be any threat to the extant long-term bearish outlook in the market. Until that happens, any rallies seen here would turn out to be opportunities to sell short.

3.png

USD/JPY: It looks like the USD/JPY pair has entered an equilibrium phase, but a closer look reveals that a bullish signal is gradually forming in the market. Price is above the EMA 11, which is in turn, above the EMA 56. The RSI period 14 is above the level 50, which means price could be moving towards the supply level at 104.50 today.

4.png

EUR/JPY: The EUR/JPY pair has gone bearish, just as it was anticipated. There is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, and price could be trending further downwards – just in opposite to what the USD/JPY pair is doing. One reason for the perceived weakness in the market is because of the weakness in EUR itself.

Technical analysis of USDX for October 21, 2016

The Dollar index has broken the consolidation towards the upside to new highs at 98.50. Trend remains bullish but there are several warning signs for bulls that they should not ignore. Trend is expected to change soon.

analytics5809bf8077d4a.jpg

Green lines - bullish channel

Red line - long-term support

Blue lines -short-term consolidation

Price is still above the Ichimoku cloud. Price has broken resistance yesterday. The RSI is diverging on the 4-hour chart. This upward move is now fragile and expected to reverse soon.

analytics5809bfe71d26c.jpg

On a weekly basis, the Dollar index continues its up trend after the successful breakout from last week above the Ichimoku cloud. The follow through is an important bullish sign. Important weekly resistance is found at 99.50. I do not believe the Dollar index has the power to reach that level straight up from current levels. I believe that at least a pullback is justified to backtest cloud support and breakout area. I'm bearish about the Dollar at least for the short term.

Technical analysis of Gold for October 21, 2016

Gold price is making a pullback towards the breakout area of $1,262. Price remains inside the neutral cloud area but I believe support will hold and Gold price will continue its bounce and make short-term higher highs and higher lows.

analytics5809bdb15b3de.jpg

Red line - support (previous resistance)

Gold price is inside the Ichimoku cloud. Trend is neutral. Price is now testing the broken resistance. Price is also very close to exit above the Ichimoku cloud. This will be a bullish sign. Gold could be at the beginning of a new uptrend with higher highs and higher lows. Therefore a new higher high above $1,273 will be a bullish sign that could push price towards $1,300.

analytics5809be2ab7495.jpg

On the daily chart, we observe that price has tested the daily tenkan-sen (red line indicator) and if this support holds, we will have many chances of reaching our short-term target near $1,290 where the daily Kijun-sen (yellow line indicator) is found. Oscillators are turning upwards from oversold levels and this is a warning for bears that an upward move could already have started.

Elliott wave analysis of EUR/NZD for October 21, 2016

analytics5809adc284664.png

Wave summary:

We are looking for confirmation that the decline in wave (ii) from 1.5746 is complete. The first strong indication this is the case, will be a firm break above 1.5292, while a break above 1.5549 will confirm that wave (ii) has completed and wave (iii) higher towards at least 1.6396 and above is developing.

Longer term, we are looking for a break above resistance at 1.6931 and 1.9023, but first we need to bottom to be confirmed by a break above 1.5764. From a classical technical point of view a possible Inverse S/H/S bottom could be building, with the neckline resistance seen at 1.5764.

Trading recommendation:

We are long EUR from 1.5285 with stop placed at 1.4985. If you are not long EUR yet, then buy a break above 1.5292 and use the same stop at 1.4985.

Wave summary:

Ideally Wednesday's low at 113.10 will continue to act as a floor for a break above 113.85 and more importantly above resistance at 114.52 that will call for a new rally to 116.28 and only above here will confirm that the bottom of the long-term corrective decline from 149.56 finally is in place with the test of 109.48. We are working with a bullish count already, but we do not yet have the final confirmation that this count is correct. A break above 116.28 will be a strong indication that this is indeed the case and call for much more upside in the longer term.

Trading recommendation:

We will buy a break above 113.85 and place our stop at 113.05.

The US Dollar Index has print yet another high at 98.55 level yesterday before retracing lower.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis for October 21, 2016.

Technical outlook and chart setups:

The EUR/USD pair prints yet another low at 1.0895 levels overnight. The pair is seen to be trading at 1.0906 level for now and needs to push through 1.1040 level to confirm further upside.
