Analysis of USD/JPY for March 10, 2017

analytics58c2a8e45dbf1.png

Recently, the USD/JPY pair has been trading upwards. The price tested the level of 115.50. On the 30 time frame I found that buyers are in control and that selling looks risky. My advice is to watch for potential breakout of the resistance at 115.50 to confirm further upward continuation. I placed Fibonacci expansion to find potential upward target. I got Fibonacci expansion 100% at the price of 115.70.

Resistance levels:

R1: 115.20

R2: 115.90

R3: 115.95

Support levels:

S1: 114.50

S2: 114.00

S3: 113.73

USD/CAD intraday technical levels and trading recommendations for March 10, 2017

analytics58c2a53555153.pnganalytics58c2a5531b16a.png

Since April 2016, the USD/CAD pair has been trending up within the depicted ascending channel.

In December 2016, a bullish breakout above 1.3300 (50% Fibonacci level) was expected to allow a further advance toward 1.3700-1.3750 (the upper limit of the depicted channel).

However, significant bearish rejection was expressed around 1.3580 (recent established top).

During the bearish pullback the price level of 1.3300 (50% Fibonacci Level) failed to provide enough support for the pair.

This allowed further bearish movement toward the price level of 1.2970 (61.8% Fibonacci level) where a valid BUY entry was offered in February 2017.

This week, the current bullish breakout above 1.3300 (50% Fibonacci Level) enhanced further bullish advance towards 1.3440 and 1.3550.

The next bullish target would be located around 1.3800 (upper limit of the depicted channel) if the pair maintains bullish trading above 1.3550.

NZD/USD intraday technical levels and trading recommendations for March 10, 2017

analytics58c2a50d1c30f.png

On December 16, the price level of 0.6960 failed to apply enough bullish pressure. Instead, decline continued toward the lower limit of the depicted BUY zone (0.6860) which provided significant bullish rejection on December 23.

The NZD/USD pair was trapped within the depicted price range (0.6860-0.6990) until a bullish breakout occurred.

A bullish breakout above 0.6960-0.7000 allowed the pair to head toward the price level of 0.7100 (the key level) which failed to provide enough bearish pressure on the pair.

Bullish persistence above 0.7100 allowed further advance toward 0.7250-0.7350 (the sell zone) where the bearish price action should be expected.

Bearish persistence below 0.7250 is needed to allow further decline toward 0.7100 (note the previous bearish daily candlesticks expressed within the sell zone).

As anticipated, bearish persistence below 0.7100 (the key level) allows further decline toward 0.6960 which failed to provide enough bullish support for the pair.

That is why, the pair is expected to continue falling towards 0.6860 (the lower limit of the depicted BUY zone) where the price action should be watched for a possible BUY entry.

Analysis of EUR/JPY for March 10, 2017

analytics58c2a2c51b29e.png

Recently, the EUR/USD has been trading upwards. The price tested the level of 1.0619. On the 30M time frame I found hidden bearish divergence on the moving average oscilator and a fake breakout of yesterday's high at 1.0615. My advice is to watch for potential selling opportunties as buyers are not active above the yesterday's high. Targets are set at 1.0570 (50% retracement) and 1.0525 (yesterday's low).

Technical analysis of USD/JPY for March 10, 2017

USDJPYM30.png

USD/JPY is expected to trade in the higher range. The pair is supported by a rising trend line since Mar. 8, which confirms a positive outlook. The upward momentum is further reinforced by the rising 20-period and 50-period moving averages. The relative strength index is heading upward.

Therefore, as long as 115.00 holds on the downside, look for a new rise to 115.70 and even to 116.00 in extension.

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. Therefore, long positions are recommended with the first target at 115.70 and the second one at 116.00. In the alternative scenario, short positions are recommended with the first target at 114.60, if the price moves below its pivot points. A break of this target may push the pair further downwards, and one may expect the second target at 114.25. The pivot point is at 115.00.

Resistance levels: 115.70, 116.00, and 116.55

Support levels: 114.60, 114.25, and 114.00

Technical analysis of USD/CHF for March 10, 2017

USDCHFM30.png

USD/CHF is expected to trade with bullish bias. The pair is rebounding and is challenging the 20-period moving average. The relative strength index is turning up.

Regarding economic data, the US Labor Department reported that initial jobless claims amounted to 243,000 in week ended March 4, higher than 238,000 expected and 223,000 in the prior week, while continuing claims remained unchanged at 2.06 million in the week ended February 25, in line with expectations.

Investors are expecting an addition of 200,000 non-farm payrolls and a jobless rate of 4.7% for February in today's jobs numbers.

In addition, the downside potential should be limited by the key support level at 1.0090. As long as this key level is support, a further rise to 1.0140 and even to 1.0160 seems more likely to occur.

Resistance levels: 1.0140, 1.0160, and 1.0190

Support levels: 1.0075, 1.0055, and 1.0015

Technical analysis of NZD/USD for March 10, 2017

NZDUSDM30.png

NZD/USD is expected to trade with bearish bias. The pair is consolidating on the downside. The relative strength index is below its neutrality level at 50 and lacks upward momentum. In addition, 0.6930 is playing a key resistance level which should limit the upside potential.

Hence, as long as this key level is not broken, look for a further drop to 0.6885. A break below this level would bring a new drop to 0.6860.

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 0.6885. A break below this target will move the pair further downwards to 0.6860. The pivot point stands at 0.6930. If 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 0.6950 and the second one at 0.6960.

Resistance levels: 0.6950, 0.6960, and 0.7015

Support levels: 0.68885, 0.6860, and 0.6830

Technical analysis of GBP/JPY for March 10, 2017

GBPJPYM30.png

GBP/JPY is turning up and has been supported by its rising 20-period moving average which stays above the 50-period one. Meanwhile, the relative strength index has been supported by a rising trend line, and remains above its neutrality area at 50.

The intraday bias should remain positive, as long as 139.90 is not broken down, further bounce is preferred with 140.95 and 141.25 as targets.

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. Therefore, long positions are recommended with the first target at 140.95 and the second one at 141.25. In the alternative scenario, short positions are recommended with the first target at 139.60, if the price moves below its pivot points. A break of this target may push the pair further downwards, and one may expect the second target at 139.30. The pivot point is at 139.90.

Resistance levels: 140.95, 141.25, and 141.80

Support levels: 139.60,139.30, and 138.65

Technical analysis of USD/CHF for March 10, 2017

USDCHFH4.png

Overview:

  • The USD/CHF pair is calling for a bullish market from the support levels of 1.0041 and 1.0100.
  • Currently, the price is in a bullish channel on the 4H chart. This is confirmed by the RSI indicator signaling that we are still in a bullish trending market.
  • As the price is still above the moving average (100), immediate support is seen at 1.0041 which coincides with a ratio of 38.2% Fibonacci.
  • The first support is set at the level of 1.0041. So, the market is likely to show signs of a bullish trend around the spot of 1.0041.
  • In other words, buy orders are recommended above the golden ratio (1.0041) with the first target at the level of 1.0153.
  • Furthermore, if the trend is able to break out through the first resistance level of 1.0153, we should see the pair climbing towards the double top (1.0233) to test it.
  • It would also be wise to consider where to place a stop loss; this should be set below the second support of 1.0041 (major support).

Technical analysis of NZD/USD for March 10, 2017

1489138006_NZDUSDH4.png

Overview:

  • The NZD/USD pair fell from the level of 0.6982 towards 0.6889. Right now, the price is set at 0.6922. On the H4 chart, the resistance of the NZD/USD pair is seen at the levels of 0.6982 and 0.7057. It should be noted that volatility is very high for that the NZD/USD pair is still moving below the resistance level of 0.6982. Moreover, the price spot of 0.6982 - 0.7057 remains a significant resistance area. Therefore, there is a possibility that the NZD/USD pair will move downside and the structure of a fall does not look corrective. In order to indicate the bearish opportunity below 0.6982, sell below 0.6982 with the first target at 0.6861 in order to test the monthly bottom. It should be noted that support 1 is seen at the level of 0.6861 which coincides with the double bottom. Additionally, if the NZD/USD pair is able to break out the bottom at 0.6861, the market will decline further to 0.6800 in order to test the daily support 2. On the other hand, if a breakout happens at the resistance level of 0.7057, then this scenario may be invalidated.

Trading plan for 10/03/2017

Trading plan for 10/03/2017:

On Friday 10th of March, the main macroeconomic event is Non-Farm Employment Change data release from the US, but the market participants will pay attention to the Industrial Production data from the UK and Unemployment Rate data from Canada.

EUR/GBP analysis for 10.03/2017:

The Industrial Production data from the UK is expected to have decreased 0.6% in January after spiking 2.1% higher in December. Nevertheless, after two above-average months, a decrease should not be interpreted too negatively. The increase from a year ago is expected to be 3.0%.

Let's take a look at the EUR/GBP technical picture at the daily time frame. After the break out above the long-term golden trend line, the price is heading north towards the level of 0.8855. The level of 0.8647 will now act as a technical support for the bulls. The market is trading above all of the moving averages and the sequence of the higher highs and higher lows had not been violated. The uptrend is still valid and the bias remains to the upside.

analytics58c2693e80311.jpg

USD/JPY analysis for 10/03/2017:

The NFP Payrolls data are scheduled for release at 01:30 pm GMT and after an upbeat ADP figures the market participants are expecting another set of good numbers: the average is 200k new jobs versus 227k a month ago. Moreover, the Unemployment Rate is expected to decrease slightly to the level of 4.7% from 4.8% while the Average Hourly Earnings are expected to increase 0.3% from 0.1% a month ago (apparently, this will be the most important data after the NFP figure itself). It is worth to mention, that the better than expected data will increase the already high odds of a March interest rate hike. According to FedWatch tool by CME Group, the implied probability of March interest rate hike is now at 88.6%. If data on NFP beat, it will get almost certain.

Let's now take a look at the USD/JPY technical picture before the NFP data dump. The market is trading in the resistance area between the levels of 114.98 - 115.63, but the trading conditions are not overbought yet. If data on NFP beat the expectations, then the market might break out of this zone and head towards the next technical resistance at the level of 116.85. If NFP do not beat the expectations, then the next level to watch is the technical support at the level of 114.78, because any violation of this level will open the road to the next support at the level of 113.55.

analytics58c2694953e6e.jpg

USD/CAD analysis for 10/03/2017:

The Employment Change and Unemployment Rate data from Canada are scheduled for release at 01:30 pm GMT. The Unemployment Rate is expected to stay unchanged at the level of 6.8% and the Employment Change (the number of the employed in the country) is expected to decline 4.8k after a good increase of 48k a month ago. Any worse than expected data will raise the questions regarding the sustainability of the Canadian job market.

Let's now take a look at the USD/CAD technical picture at the H4 time frame. The market is trading in overbought conditions ahead of the Canadian and US data dump, so any worse than expected data will trigger the corrective cycle towards the next support at the level of 1,3460 and 1.3237. Nevertheless, the most important support remains at the level of 1.3388 - 1.3367 and in order to continue upward, this zone cannot be violated.

Technical analysis of USDX for March 10, 2017

The Dollar index got rejected at 102.25 again yesterday and pulled back toward the short-term support at 101.70. Price is still trapped inside the trading range.The index is trading near its upper range boundary and so far it has been rejected each time it reached 102.30.

analytics58c25e936f0ee.png

Blue line - trend line support

Red line - resistance

The Dollar index has most probably formed an ascending triangle pattern. Strong resistance is at 102.30 and a break above it will push the index toward 103. A break below 101.40 will open the way toward 100. Support is at 101.40. A double top was formed at 102.30. A break below 101.20 will push price at least toward 100.20.

analytics58c25f11119c6.png

Red line - resistance

Black line- neckline support

Green line - long-term support trend line

The weekly chart remains bullish, but bulls will need to break above the red line resistance in order for the bulls to remain in control. Inability to break above 102.30 will result in a pull back and the creation of a lower high. This pattern will bring in a bearish scenario together with the Head and Shoulders pattern we discussed in a previous post. As long as price is above 101 bulls remain in control.

Global macro overview for 10/03/2017

Global macro overview for 10/03/2017:

Last Wednesday, the UK Finance Minister Philip Hammond presented his annual budget statement for the years 2017 - 2018. According to his projections, the previous UK economy expansion estimate of 1.4% expansion has been upgraded to 2.0%. Nevertheless, during the next year economic growth is expected to fall to 1.6% and then climb to 1.7% and 1.9% in 2019 and 2020, respectively. The return to 2.0% growth rate is expected in 2021. Moreover, the inflation expectation has been increased to the level of 2.4% in 2017, but then inflation is expected to decrease slightly to 2.3% in 2018. The Bank of England inflation target of 2.0% will be hit in 2019. In conclusion, a rather optimistic point of view from Hammond, that neglects all of the negative effects of a post-Brexit economy. The question remains, whether he took into account the possibility of success of the second Scottish referendum? Time will tell.

Let's now take a look at GBP/USD technical picture at the H4 time frame. The price is currently trading just above the 78%Fibo at the level of 1.2140 in heavily oversold market conditions. Moreover, it looks like the bull camp is trying to establish a base for a bounce towards the intraday resistance at the level of 1.2211 as the price had broken out of the dashed channel already. If the level of 1.2133 is not clearly violated, the immediate bias has changed to slightly bullish.

Wave analysis of gold for March 10, 2017

Gold price remains in a bearish trend. The daily chart is as oversold as when Gold was at $1,120. A bounce is justified and for the Gold market I expect the low will be today. Gold is most probably in wave 2 down retracing the rise from $1,120 to $1,263.

analytics58c25c27b5ce9.jpg

Blue lines- bearish channel

Purple lines - trend line resistance

Gold price is making lower lows and lower highs. The price is below the Ichimoku cloud and oscillators are oversold. Gold has short-term resistance at $1,202 and the next is at $1,208. $1,215 is the first strong short-term resistance and the most important one is at $1,237-40.

analytics58c25cb45d9fd.jpg

I believe Gold has formed a leading diagonal pattern as wave (I) and is now in wave (II) and has already reached the 50% retracement. A move below the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement will decrease the chances of this scenario being correct. In the long tern I remain bullish.

Global macro overview for 10/03/2017

Global macro overview for 10/03/2017:

As widely anticipated the European Central Bank has left the interest rate unchanged at the level of 0.0% again. The deposit facility rate, marginal lending facility, and asset purchase target were left unchanged as well. In his statement at the ECB press conference, Mario Draghi said that risks to the region's economic outlook are now less pronounced and the main message was that overall downside risks had eased. He reiterated that underlying inflation remains subdued and that the central bank will look through transient changes in inflation. The 2017 CPI inflation forecast was increased to 1.7% from 1.3% while the 2018 projection was raised to 1.6% from 1.5% while there was no change to the 2019 forecast at 1.7%.The latest ECB staff projections showed an increase in the 2017 GDP growth forecast to 1.8% from 1.7% with the 2018 forecast also upgraded by 0.1% to 1.7% with no change for 2019. In conclusion, a rather dovish Draghi statement and dovish press conference except the inflation projections suggest that the ECB does not plan to cut the interest rates below 0.0% any time soon.

Let's now take a look at the EUR/USD technical picture at the H1 time frame. The comments from Draghi made the price to break out of the falling wedge. The yesterday's high was established at the level of 1.0614 and since then the price has been slowly drifting into a sideways market. No important high or low was violated and the market is still trading inside of the range between the technical support at the level of 1.0524 and technical resistance at the level of 1.0639.

USDJPY Fundamental Analysis March 10, 2017

USD/JPY has shown a good amount of strength recently climbing from 113.65 to now above 115.00. Yesterday USD Unemployment claims were published at it was a bit higher than expected at 239k but was published at 243k and JPY Average Cash Earning report was expected to be 0.3% but was published at 0.5%, the economic not quite affect the gains of USD that much yesterday. Today JPY had BSI Manufacturing Index report where the expectation was at 8.4 but the report was published at 1.1, a big downturn in this event. On the other hand, today is most important day for USD as Non-Farm payroll report is going to published which is expected to be at 200k which previously was at 227k, Unemployment rate is expected to be at 4.7% which previously was at 4.8% and Average Hourly Earning is expected to be at 0.3% which previously was at 0.1%. As of important events of USD, the pair is expected to be very volatile during the events and the volatility will describe the upcoming moves for the next week.

Now let us look at the technical view, the price is currently residing above 115.00 and it is expected that the price will fall back toward nearest support at 114.75 and then if any bearish rejection is observed we will look to buy with a target toward 118. On the other hand, if the price breaks below the support 114.75 with a daily close and remains below, then the bias will be changed to bearish with a downward target toward 113.65.

Daily analysis of major pairs for March 10, 2017

EUR/USD: The EUR/USD has consolidated so far this week. Price has oscillated between the support line at 1.0500 and the resistance line at 1.0650. Today or next week, it is expected that price would move above the aforementioned resistance line or below the support line, and then, a directional movement would begin. Otherwise, the bias on the market would turn neutral.

1.png

USD/CHF: The USD/CHF has been unable to stay above the resistance level at 1.0150 and the support level at 1.0050. Today or next week, it is expected that price would move above the aforementioned resistance level or below the support level, and then, a directional movement would begin. Otherwise, the bias on the market would turn neutral.

2.png

GBP/USD: This pair has gone south by 130 pips this week; having gone south by 300 pips since February 27, 2017. It looks like the accumulation territory at 1.2150 has become strong enough to prevent further southwards journey, but it is likely that the journey would eventually continue. Once the accumulation territory is breached to the downside, the market would target another accumulation territory at 1.2050.

3.png

USD/JPY: On this pair, price managed to break upwards on Wednesday and things have become really bullish. Price has gone above the demand level at 115.00, going towards the supply level at 116.00 (which is the next target). EMA 11 is above the EMA 56, and the RSI period 14 is above the level 50. There is a clear Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the chart.

4.png

EUR/JPY: The EUR/JPY has moved above the demand zone at 121.50, going towards the supply zone at 122.00. There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the 4-hour chart, and the price would most probably continue to go upwards.

Recently, the GBP/USD pair has been trading sideways at the price of 1.2160. According to the 30M time frame, I found hidden bullish divergence, which is a sign that selling looks risky.

Trading plan for EUR/USD and USD/JPY for March 09, 2017

analytics58c16feab71b2.jpg

Technical outlook:

The EUR/USD pair has rallied as per expectations in a counter trend today right after the ECB rate decision. Believe it or not, the wave structure was already setting up for this and the pair has further potential to push through 1.0650 and 1.0700 levels. But since it is in a counter trend rally, it is suggested that profits should be realized now through 1.0600 level if aggressive longs were taken yesterday. The wave structure still indicates that the pair is in a vigorous down trend and should soon form a lower top as a flat a-b-c as labeled here. It remains to be seen whether c is already printed at 1.0640 on March 06, 2017 or it would push towards 1.0700 level. Immediate resistance is at 1.0680 level, while support is at 1.0490 level, respectively. From here on, selling on rallies would be a favored trading strategy.

Trading plan:

Please book profits on aggressive longs taken yesterday around 1.0600 levels and remain flat for now. Also look to take short positions on rallies through 1.0650 and 1.0700 levels, with stop at 1.0850, targeting lower. This setup should materialize by tomorrow.

USD/JPY chart setups:

Technical outlook:

The USD/JPY remains slightly edgy towards the resistance zone at 114.95/96 levels as seen today. Looking at the wave structure, it seems the pair seems has completed A-B-C as labeled here on the hourly chart. Oscillators are still pointing towards a potential bearish reversal from the current levels. Only a consistent break above 114.95 level would put the bearish view into trouble. Please remain short for now with risk at 115.00 level as recommended yesterday. Resistance is seen at 114.96 level, while support is at 114.25 level as depicted above. Structurally, USD/JPY is terminating into the last leg of the triangle consolidation as discussed earlier and high probability remains for a drop which should unfold into 5 waves from here. The downside potential would increase and accelerate once USD/JPY breaks below 114.25 level, today's intraday lows. Please book profits on aggressive longs taken yesterday around 1.0600 level and remain flat for now. Also look to take short positions on rallies through 1.0650 and 1.0700 levels, with stop at 1.0850, targeting lower. This setup should materialize by tomorrow.

Trading plan:

Please hold short positions for now with stop at 115.00 level, targeting 112.00 at least.

Fundamental outlook:

The ECB has kept interest rates unchanged for now eliminating any possibilities of a probable change in trend. Please watch out for the NFP to be out tomorrow at 08:30 AM EST which would set the tone for the short-term setup in the US Dollar.

Good luck!
