USD/CAD: the pair is adjusted 04.12.2019

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on USD/CAD for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

Today, during the Asian session, the USD/CAD pair is falling, losing about 0.05%. The instrument is developing a “bearish” impulse, formed yesterday under the influence of poor macroeconomic statistics, as well as general correctional sentiments regarding the US currency. Investors are concerned about Washington’s new import duties against Brazil and Argentina, as well as the possible delay in signing a trade agreement with China to November 2020, when the US presidential election will be held.

During the day, traders expect the publication of business activity indexes in the US services sector for November. Following the poor Manufacturing PMI data released on Monday, forecasts for the growth of the US dollar on Service PMI data are very restrained. Also, the market is focused on the monetary policy decision of the Bank of Canada with accompanying comments. It is expected that the interest rate will be maintained at the current level of 1.75%.

Support and resistance

On the daily chart, Bollinger bands grow moderately. The price range narrows, reflecting the appearance of ambiguous dynamics in the short term. MACD falls, having formed a poor sell signal (the histogram is below the signal line). Stochastic, by contrast, moderately grows and practically does not respond to the appearance of correctional dynamics.

To open new trading positions, it is better to wait until the situation is clear.

Resistance levels: 1.3300, 1.3326, 1.3347.

Support levels: 1.3269, 1.3228, 1.3189, 1.3159.





Trading tips

Long positions may be opened after a rebound from 1.3269 and a breakout of 1.3300 with the targets at 1.3347–1.3360. Stop loss – 1.3269.

Short positions may be opened after the breakdown of 1.3269 with the targets at 1.3228–1.3200. Stop loss – 1.3300.

Implementation period: 2–3 days.

XAU/USD: gold prices have stabilized 06.12.2019

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on XAU/USD for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

Gold prices are stable during today’s Asian session, trading near 1475.00. Gold quotes have changed little recently since investors expect the situation to develop in a trade conflict between the United States and China. Earlier this week, information appeared that the conclusion of the agreement may have to be postponed to November 2020, when the next presidential election will be held in the United States. Donald Trump later reiterated that “negotiations are going well,” and moderate optimism gradually began to return to the markets. However, there is little time left until December 15, and new import duties, if they are introduced by the USA, will almost certainly put an end to the current progress in the negotiations and everything will have to be started from scratch.

Support and resistance

In the D1 chart, Bollinger Bands are reversing horizontally. The price range remains virtually unchanged, limiting the development of the “bullish” sentiment in the ultra-short term. MACD indicator is growing preserving a weak buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic, having reached the level of “80”, demonstrates weak correctional dynamics, indicating the possibility of developing a full-fledged downtrend in the nearest time intervals.

It is necessary to wait for the additional signals from technical indicators to open short positions.

Resistance levels: 1481.44, 1486.81, 1493.88, 1500.00.

Support levels: 1471.15, 1464.48, 1455.93, 1449.81.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 1481.44. Take profit – 1500.00. Stop loss – 1471.15.

A breakdown of 1471.15 may be a signal for new sales with target at 1455.93 or 1449.81. Stop loss – 1481.44.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

AUD/USD: the instrument is consolidating 09.12.2019

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on AUD/USD for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

AUD is trading near the opening level (0.6829) against USD during today's Asian session. Investors are in no hurry to open new trading positions, preferring to wait for new drivers to appear at the market. Monday's macroeconomic background is rather scarce, but on Tuesday there will be a lot of interesting statistics from Australia and China. On Wednesday, the United States will be in the spotlight with the publication of November statistics on Consumer Inflation and the Fed meeting.

In the meantime, investors are taking a lead from the publication of a strong US labor market report for November last Friday. Nonfarm Payrolls in November increased by 266K after the growth by 156K in the previous month. Analysts had expected an increase of 180K.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart show moderate growth. The price range expands slightly, freeing a path to new local highs for the “bulls”. MACD indicator is growing preserving a weak buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic reversed downwards, pointing to the risks of a corrective decline in the ultra-short term.

It is worth looking into the possibility of corrective decline in the short and/or ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 0.6833, 0.6846, 0.6864, 0.6881.

Support levels: 0.6819, 0.6800, 0.6782, 0.6768.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the rebound from the support level of 0.6819, with the subsequent breakout of 0.6833. Take profit – 0.6864 or 0.6881. Stop loss – 0.6810 or 0.6800.

A breakdown of 0.6819 may be a signal for new sales with target at 0.6782 or 0.6768. Stop loss – 0.6846.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

EUR/USD: EUR is corrected 11.12.2019

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on EUR/USD for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

EUR is relatively stable against USD during today’s Asian session. The instrument is trading near the level of 1.1096, a local high of December 6 updated the day before. Moderate growth of the instrument on Tuesday was facilitated by rather optimistic European macroeconomic statistics. ZEW Economic Sentiment in December increased from –1 to 11.2 points, which turned out to be much better than expectations (–17.7 points). Investors were pleased with the German data from ZEW. German ZEW Current Conditions in December rose from –24.7 to –19.9 points, which turned out to be better than the forecasts at –22.3 points. German ZEW Economic Sentiment for the same period rose from –2.1 to 10.7 points, while the growth forecast was only to zero.

Today, investors expect the publication of statistics from the US on consumer inflation. The key event on Wednesday will be the Fed meeting on interest rates followed by a press conference.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart show moderate growth. The price range expands from above, freeing a path to new local highs for the “bulls”. MACD indicator is growing preserving a moderate buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic is reversing upwards after quite an active decline at the end of last week.

Technical indicators do not contradict the further development of the uptrend in the short and/or ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 1.1096, 1.1115, 1.1139.

Support levels: 1.1080, 1.1062, 1.1038, 1.1024.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 1.1096. Take profit – 1.1139 or 1.1150. Stop loss – 1.1062.

The rebound from 1.1096 as from resistance, with the subsequent breakdown of 1.1080 can become a signal to new sales with target at 1.1038 or 1.1024. Stop loss – 1.1105 or 1.1115.

USD/JPY: USD is strengthening 13.12.2019

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on USD/JPY for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

USD is growing during today’s Asian session, continuing the development of the “bullish” impulse formed yesterday. USD is adding about 0.28%, receiving support from the growing optimism regarding the prospects for a trade agreement between the US and China. Also, investors are reacting to the publication of the preliminary results of the British Parliamentary elections, where Boris Johnson’s party wins, which will allow to ratify the agreement with the EU in the near future.

JPY is under pressure from uncertain Japanese macroeconomic statistics. Industrial Production in Japan in October fell by 7.7% YoY after falling by 7.4% YoY in September. In monthly terms, production decreased by 4.5% MoM after a decrease of 4.2% a month earlier. Tankan Large Manufacturers Index in Q4 2019 fell from 5 to 0 points, with the forecast of 2 points.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart show insignificant growth. The price range is expanding from above, struggling to keep up with a surge of “bullish” sentiment. MACD indicator is growing preserving a stable buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic keeps a confident upward direction but is rapidly approaching its highs, which indicates the risks of overbought instrument in the ultra-short term.

Technical indicators do not contradict the further growth of the instrument in the short and/or ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 109.61, 109.71, 110.00.

Support levels: 109.47, 109.28, 109.06, 108.91.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 109.61 or 109.71. Take profit – 110.00. Stop loss – 109.47 or 109.40. Implementation time: 1-2 days.

The rebound from 109.61 as from resistance, with the subsequent breakdown of 109.47, can become a signal to new sales with target at 109.06 or 108.91. Stop loss – 109.71. Implementation time: 2-3 days.

Brent Crude Oil: oil prices rise 16.12.2019

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on Brent Crude Oil for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

On Friday, oil prices rose moderately, reacting to confirmation of a trade agreement between the United States and China. US President Donald Trump commented on the news on Twitter, noting that the parties had already begun discussions within the framework of the “second stage” of the agreement. In addition, Washington has canceled the introduction of import duties on Chinese goods since December 15.

However, the instrument failed to consolidate in the new local highs, and by the time the afternoon session closed, it had lost most of its positions. The development of correctional dynamics was facilitated by the published Baker Hughes report on active oil platforms in the USA, which reflected the increase in the number of operating rigs in the USA from 663 to 667 units per week.

Support and resistance

On the daily chart, Bollinger bands are growing moderately. The price range is actively expanding, letting “bulls” renew local highs. The MACD indicator is growing, maintaining a poor buy signal (the histogram is above the signal line). Stochastic is reversing upwards after a short downward correction, reacting to the return of "bullish" sentiment to the market at the end of last trading week.

Current readings of the technical indicators do not contradict the further development of upward dynamics in the short and/or ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 65.56, 66.00, 66.21.

Support levels: 65.00, 64.62, 64.00, 63.50.





Trading tips

Long positions may be opened after the breakout of the level of 65.56 with the targets at 66.21–66.50. Stop loss – 65.00. Implementation period: 1–2 days.

Short positions may be opened after the breakdown of the level of 65.00 with the target at 64.00 or 63.50. Stop loss – 65.56. Implementation period: 2–3 days.

USD/CHF: the dollar remains under pressure 18.12.2019

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on USD/CHF for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

Today, during the Asian session, the USD/CHF pair is growing slightly (+0.05%), correcting after a steady yesterday’s decline, which led to the renewal of local lows of August 27. Tuesday’s US macroeconomic statistics failed to provide appreciable support to the instrument, while the franc reacted positively to the appearance of information on the EU trade balance for October.

During the day, investors expect the publication of a block of data on consumer inflation in the EU for November and the release of the quarterly report of the National Bank of Switzerland with a review for the fourth quarter. There will be few key statistics from the United States, and only speeches by representatives of the US Federal Reserve will be in the spotlight, which are unlikely to affect the prospects for the monetary policy of the regulator next year.

Support and resistance

On the daily chart, Bollinger bands steadily decline. The price range narrows, reflecting the slowdown of the “bearish” dynamics in the short term. MACD also slows down the downward trend, while maintaining the sell signal (the histogram is below the signal line). Stochastic, responding to a surge of "bearish" sentiment on Tuesday, maintains a strong downward trend and is close to its lows, which signals that USD is oversold in the very short term.

It is better to keep the current short positions until the situation becomes clear.

Resistance levels: 0.9832, 0.9867, 0.9889, 0.9909.

Support levels: 0.9794, 0.9767, 0.9730.





Trading tips

Long positions may be opened after a rebound from 0.9794 and a breakout of 0.9832 with the target at 0.9889 or 0.9909. Stop loss – 0.9794.

Short positions may be opened after the breakdown of 0.9794 with the target at 0.9730. Stop loss – 0.9832.

Implementation period: 2–3 days.

EUR/USD: the euro is consolidating 20.12.2019

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on EUR/USD for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

EUR is showing a moderate decline against USD during today's Asian session. The instrument is preparing to test the level of 1.1110, losing about 0.07%. The “bearish” trend replaced the uncertain growth, which was due to not the most successful macroeconomic statistics from the US on Thursday. US Existing Home Sales in November fell by 1.7% MoM after a 1.5% MoM growth last month. Analysts expected a decline of 0.2% MoM. Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing Index in December fell sharply from 10.4 to 0.3 points with a forecast of a decrease of only 8 points.

During the day, investors expect publication of statistics from the United States on annual GDP growth rates for Q3 2019 (updated data) and the dynamics of Personal Income and Spending for November. The euro area is expected to release Consumer Confidence data in December, as well as Current Account balance statistics for October.

Support and resistance

In the D1 chart, Bollinger Bands are reversing horizontally. The price range is narrowing from below, reflecting the flat dynamics of trading in the short term. MACD is going down preserving a moderate sell signal (located below the signal line). Stochastic keeps a confident downtrend but is located near its lows, which indicates the risks of oversold EUR in the ultra-short term.

Existing short positions should be kept until the situation clears up.

Resistance levels: 1.1143, 1.1174, 1.1200.

Support levels: 1.1115, 1.1096, 1.1080, 1.1062.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the rebound from the support level of 1.1096, with the subsequent breakout of 1.1115. Take profit – 1.1174 or 1.1200. Stop loss – 1.1090.

A breakdown of 1.1096 may be a signal for new sales with target at 1.1062 or 1.1050, 1.1038. Stop loss – 1.1120 or 1.1130.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

WTI Crude Oil: oil prices are in correction 23.12.2019

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on WTI Crude Oil for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

Today, during the Asian session, oil prices show a negative trend, continuing to develop a “bearish” impulse formed at the end of last week. The instrument is supported by a decrease in trade tension between the US and China after the parties announced that they would sign a trade agreement in the first half of January. Investors expect that this step will contribute to a moderate increase in demand for petroleum products, which, along with the OPEC+ policy, may provide significant support for prices for “black gold”.

Prices are under pressure by Friday’s report of Baker Hughes, which indicated a sharp increase in the number of rigs for the week of December 20. The indicator increased by 18 units to 685 units, which was the most powerful growth since February 2018.

Support and resistance

On the daily chart, Bollinger bands are growing moderately. The price range is narrowing, reflecting the appearance of correctional dynamics in the ultra-short term. The MACD indicator has reversed downward, having formed a new sell signal (the histogram is below the signal line). Stochastic’s dynamic is similar, it is currently located in the middle of its workspace.

Current readings of technical indicators do not contradict the further development of the downtrend in the short and/or ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 60.42, 61.01, 61.42.

Support levels: 60.00, 59.45, 59.00, 58.62.





Trading tips

Long positions may be opened after a rebound from the level of 60.00 and a breakout of the level of 60.42 with the target at 61.42. Stop loss – 59.80–59.60.

Short positions may be opened after the breakdown of the level of 60.00 with the target at 59.00 or 58.62. Stop loss – 60.75.

Implementation period: 2–3 days.

XAU/USD: gold prices rise 27.09.2019

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on XAU/USD for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

Today, during the Asian session, gold prices are slightly increasing, consolidating after a confident “bullish” rally for the last 3 trading sessions. Now the growth of the instrument is about 0.13%. The upward dynamics of the instrument is due to low trading volumes on the market due to the Christmas and New Year holidays, as well as fluctuations in stock exchanges.

In turn, gold is under pressure of the growing prospect of signing a trade agreement between the United States and China, which could mark the beginning of a massive improvement in relations between countries, as well as a significant reduction in global risks and the danger of a slowdown in the global economy. However, the date of signing the first phase of the transaction is still unknown, and skeptics point to a lot of unresolved issues between the parties to the trade conflict.


Support and resistance

On the daily chart, Bollinger bands grow. The price range actively expands but not as fast as the "bullish" moods develop. MACD grows, maintaining a strong buy signal (the histogram is above the signal line). Stochastic, approaching its highs, reversed into a horizontal plane, indicating that the instrument is overbought in the ultra-short term.

It is worth paying attention to a developing of a correctional decline after the formation of the corresponding signals from technical indicators.

Resistance levels: 1517.66, 1523.95, 1535.39.

Support levels: 1510.00, 1500.00, 1493.88, 1486.40.






Trading tips

Long positions may be opened after the breakout of 1517.66 with the target at 1530.00 or 1535.39. Stop loss – 1510.00. Implementation period: 2–3 days.

Short positions may be opened after a rebound from 1517.66 and a breakdown of 1510.00 with the target at 1500.00 or 1493.88. Stop loss – 1517.66. Implementation period: 1–2 days.

USD/CHF: general review 30.09.2019

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on USD/CHF for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

The USD/CHF pair continues to be strongly affected by the continued weakening of USD. Despite the assurances of Donald Trump that the first stage of the trade transaction is ready and will be signed no later than January next year, investors do not see positive. The main indicator of economic stability – the curve of 10-year bonds yield – signals a high probability of a recession in the US economy in the first quarter of 2020.

Another reason for the decline in the instrument is the continued fall of the USD Index, which reaches 96.430 points and seems to have confidently fixed below the psychological level of 97 points. In early December, Moody’s predicted the start of a new cycle of recession in the US economy if the USD Index consolidated below it.

In the absence of publication of macroeconomic data from Switzerland this week, the USD Index will be the main driver for the course, in case of its decrease the pair will fall.

Support and resistance

Despite the active decline, the price stays within the wide sideways channel, approaching the support line. The Alligator indicator keeps a sell signal. However, the AO oscillator is already starting to reverse. Further decline is not likely. After the breakout of the resistance line, growth will be possible.

Resistance levels: 0.9810, 1.0000.

XAU/USD: general analysis 03.01.2020

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on XAU/USD for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

Gold quotes are steadily trading above $1,500 an ounce. USD is getting cheaper, which causes an outflow of investment capital, which is gradually moving into the precious metal.

Media reported that Turkey launched the world's first platform based on blockchain technology for the issuance, redemption, and transfer of digitized gold. According to Borsa Istanbul, the system allows transferring a digital asset tied to a physical equivalent through distributed registry technology. It is worth noting that such projects can provoke an increase in interest in the precious metals market since such stable assets are the best equivalent for binding.

In conditions of reduced volatility due to the New Year holidays, as well as in the case of continued decline in the USD Index, the instrument has good prospects for further growth.

Support and resistance

The correction pattern "triangle" began to implement, and the price is actively increasing. The global growth target is around 1600.0. The Alligator indicator gave a steady buy signal. An active signal for growth is observed on the AO oscillator.

Resistance levels: 1550.0.1600.0.

Support levels: 1515.0, 1450.0.



Trading tips

After growth and consolidation above a local maximum around 1550.0, buy positions with the target at 1600.0 will be relevant. Stop loss is below the previous local maximum, around 1510.0.

After a decrease and consolidation below the local minimum around 1515.0, it is better to open sell positions with the target at 1450.0. Stop loss is above the local maximum, around 1551.0.

Implementation period: 7 days or more.

USD/JPY: the dollar is correcting 06.01.2020

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on USD/JPY for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

USD is showing strong growth against JPY during today’s Asian session, testing the level of 108.00 for a breakout. The instrument is corrected after a sharp decline in USD, which was triggered by a rapid increase in demand for safe assets after the escalation of tension in the Middle East. As a result of the death of an Iranian general after US missile strikes at Baghdad airport, the parties exchanged mutual threats, and investors hastened to diversify their risks. Japanese macroeconomic statistics released on Monday put additional pressure on the yen. Jibun Bank Manufacturing PMI fell from 48.8 to 48.4 points in December, which turned out to be worse than average expectations.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate active decrease. The price range is expanding; however, it fails to catch the surge of the “bearish” sentiment at the moment. MACD is going down preserving a stable sell signal (located below the signal line). Stochastic, consolidating below the level of “20”, reversed horizontally, indicating the growth of correctional sentiment and the oversold USD in the ultra-short term.

To open new trading positions, it is necessary to wait for the signals from technical indicators to be clarified.

Resistance levels: 108.25, 108.41, 108.66, 108.91.

Support levels: 108.00, 107.76, 107.51.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 108.25. Take profit – 108.66 or 108.91. Stop loss – 108.00.

The return of “bearish” trend with the breakdown of 107.76 may become a signal for further sales with the target at 107.22. Stop loss – 108.00.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

EUR/USD: general analysis 08.01.2020

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on EUR/USD for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

EUR is under pressure as a result of approaching the UK’s actual withdrawal from the EU, scheduled for January 31. Even the positive macroeconomic data cannot change the negative mood of investors. Thus, Service PMI for December reached the level of 52.8 points, which is better than the expected 52.5 points and the November level of 51.6. The consumer price index remained unchanged at 1.3% against the corresponding forecast and slightly above 1.0% in November. The USD Index continues to stably stay below the psychological level of 97 points, being around 96.600, which significantly inhibits the growth of USD.

In general, this week, the EUR/USD pair will consolidate within a narrow range of 1000–1500 points, and the fundamental background, based on the aggravation of US-Iranian relations after the liquidation of General Qasem Soleimani by order of US President Donald Trump, can provoke sharp fluctuations.

Support and resistance

The asset continues to grow within the upward channel. The increase in USD volatility led to the formation of the “triangle” pattern but the direction of its implementation is still unknown. The Alligator indicator issued a sell signal but the price is close to the channel support line, which levels the signal strength.

Resistance levels: 1.1200, 1.1270.

Support levels: 1.1120, 1.1050.



Trading tips

After growth and consolidation above the level of 1.1200, buy positions with the target at 1.1270 will be relevant. Stop loss is below the local maximum, around 1.1160.

After a decrease and consolidation below the local minimum and the channel support line around 1.1120, it is better to open sell positions with a target at 1.1050. Stop loss is above the local minimum, around 1.1170.

Implementation period: 5 days.

Use more opportunities of the NPBFX analytical portal: glossary

Beginning traders certainly face a lot of specialized concepts and lexicon on FOREX, which are often not fully been understood. Swap, tick, hedge, margin calls are often unfamiliar to beginning traders. But the lack of knowledge of these fundamentals make a competent market vision impossible. So glossary on the NPBFX analytical portal could be an excellent helper in this case, which contains all the main definitions with explanations in a compact and accessible form. All concepts are arranged in alphabetical order, so that you can easily and quickly find and explore a new concept for yourself.

If you have any questions about trading instruments, you can always ask an analyst in the online chat on the portal and get a free consultation of an experienced specialist.

NZD/USD: New Zealand dollar remains under pressure 10.01.2020

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on NZD/USD for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

During today's Asian session, the NZD/USD pair is growing, being corrected after yesterday’s active decline, as a result of which the local lows of December 23 were renewed. The instrument adds about 0.10%, preparing to test the level of 0.6620 for an upward breakdown. Yesterday, a poor macroeconomic background put pressure on the price. ANZ Commodity Price Index for December unexpectedly fell by 2.8% MoM after rising 4.3% MoM last month. Analysts had expected positive dynamics to remain at 3% MoM. Chinese data also added some negative. Thus, the consumer price index for December showed zero dynamics after an increase of 0.4% MoM in November. The market expected inflation to rise by 0.3% MoM. In annual terms, the growth rate of consumer prices remained at the previous level of 4.5% YoY, which turned out to be worse than market expectations of 4.7% YoY.

Support and resistance

On the daily chart, Bollinger Bands smoothly reverse horizontally. The price range consolidated within a wide range, indicating the emergence of flat trading dynamics in the short or medium term. MACD falls, maintaining a strong sell signal (the histogram is below the signal line). Stochastic, approaching the level of 20, reversed horizontally, signaling that an upward correction of the oversold NZD is possible.

A corrective growth is possible in the short and/or ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 0.6618, 0.6651, 0.6680, 0.6725.

Support levels: 0.6600, 0.6573, 0.6539, 0.6521.





Trading tips

Long positions may be opened after a rebound from 0.6600 and a breakout of 0.6618 with the target at 0.6680. Stop loss – 0.6580.

Short positions may be opened after a breakdown of 0.6600 with the target at 0.6539 or 0.6521. Stop loss – 0.6630–0.6640.

Implementation period: 2–3 days.

GBP/USD: the pound remains under pressure 13.01.2020

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on GBP/USD for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

GBP is trading slightly lower against USD during today’s Asian session, opening with a slight gap down. The instrument is testing the level of 1.3030, located not far from the local lows of January 9. The pressure on GBP is exerted by the approach of the next Brexit deadline, and despite the fact that at the moment the British government has no serious obstacles to its implementation, market sentiment remains alarming. The British economy is not in the best condition, so traders fear that the country's exit from the EU could be very painful. Today, investors expect the publication of statistics from the UK. In particular, data on Industrial Production and GDP dynamics for November are expected to be released.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate flat dynamics. The price range is narrowing, reflecting that the multidirectional dynamics remains in the short term. MACD is going down preserving a moderate sell signal (located below the signal line). The indicator is about to test the zero line for a breakdown. Stochastic keeps a downward direction but is rapidly approaching its lows, which indicates the growing risks of oversold GBP in the ultra-short term.

One should keep the existing short positions in the short and/or ultra-short term until the situation is clear.

Resistance levels: 1.3052, 1.3100, 1.3148, 1.3195.

Support levels: 1.3011, 1.2958, 1.2900.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the rebound from the support level of 1.3011, with the subsequent breakout of 1.3052. Take profit – 1.3148 or 1.3195. Stop loss – 1.3000 or 1.2990. Implementation time: 2-3 days.

The breakdown of 1.3011 or 1.3000 may serve as a signal to new sales with target at 1.2900. Stop loss – 1.3050 or 1.3070. Implementation time: 1-2 days.

Current trend

USD shows a slight increase against CHF during today's Asian session, correcting after a sharp decline in the instrument yesterday. The pair adds about 0.04%.

Core Consumer Price Index in December slowed from 0.2% MoM to 0.1% MoM. In annual terms, however, the price index rose in December from 2.1% YoY to 2.3% YoY.

During the day, investors expect the publication of statistics on US Production Inflation for December. Also today, a formal signing of a trade agreement between the United States and China should take place.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate a stable decrease. The price range is narrowing, reflecting the flat dynamics of trading in the short term. MACD reversed into a descending plane, having formed a new sell signal (located below the signal line). Stochastic keeps a confident downward direction but is rapidly approaching its lows, which indicates the oversold USD in the ultra-short term.

Existing short positions should be kept in the short term until the situation clears up.

Resistance levels: 0.9702, 0.9743, 0.9769, 0.9792.

However, his success story, where the quality of trading is more important than the number of trades, deserves a detailed discussion and can be an inspiring example for someone. So, from the first day of his participation in the contest Johana set himself an ambitious goal to become the winner and get the grand prize–iPhone 11 Pro. Working 4 hours a day at his laptop, he achieved his goal and headed the table of winners with an excellent trading result +5109% profit!

What trading instruments does Johana include in his portfolio, why does he prefer technical analysis and how does he help the school committee? Look for the answers in the interview.



- Johana, first of all, on behalf of our company NPBFX I would like to congratulate you on a brilliant victory! What feelings and emotions do you feel about it? Tell me, please.

- I was very happy when I discovered that I had won. I immediately tried to contact NPBFX support to find out if I really won. I was even more pleased with the fact that the contest was held internationally and I beat the traders from all over the world.

- Have you already shared this news with anyone?

- At the moment when I found out that I had won the contest, I was participating in Forex trading training. So I immediately shared the joyful news with my classmates. Moreover, they initially knew about my participation and watched my progress.

- This was the first time you participated in the Battle of Traders contest. Was the victory a surprise for you or did you purposefully go to the 1st place?

- Yes, I did this with a goal in mind and was motivated to get a grand prize. When there is an extra prize, it is always a plus and greater motivation.

- Could you please tell us how you learned about the Battle of Traders contest and why did you decide to take part in it?

- I found out about the contest from Facebook, as well as from the email newsletter. I immediately began to learn the rules and decided to take part. I wanted to present a new strategy to my classmates, to show them that I was able to achieve the goal, to motivate them.

- Johana, how long did it take you to sign up for the Battle of Traders contest? How do you evaluate the terms of the contest in general?

- The sign up for the contest is very simple and the process is quite fast. The terms of the contest are also very easy and clear. Big deal is to get an extra prize.

- At the end of the contest month you have shown excellent trading results: You have increased the initial deposit of $5000 by 51 times (up to $255 476)! Could you tell us, please, what is the essence of your trading strategy?

- I use supply and demand analysis strategy and look at the trend line. Then I look at the price movements using the time frame for analysis when determining the next trade.

- According to your contest account statement, it is seen that you have closed 144 deals using a fairly wide trading portfolio: gold, currency pairs by pound, yen, New Zealand dollar and other currencies. Tell me, based on what principle did you form your trading portfolio?

- I prefer currency pairs and gold, because the average daily movement is quite large, especially in currency pairs with the pound sterling, and many people win on these currency pairs.

- Do you use your smartphone to trade on Forex or do you prefer the desktop version?

- In the contest I traded using my laptop, because it is easier to set an indicator.

- Johana, did you trade with an Expert Adviser/Robot or manually managed each trade? How much time per day did you usually have to spend on the contest?

- I trade manually and do not use Expert Advisors. On average, I traded 4 hours a day, sometimes in the morning or in the night, analyzing, looking at market movements.

- Do you more cater to technical or fundamental analysis when forecasting the market?

- I prefer to focus on technical analysis, because I do not trust the news that comes out.

- $1,000 has already been credited to your real NPBFX trading account. Are you planning to trade in the same way as you did on a demo account?

- It is quite possible that I will still use the same strategy, because it did not require too much time to trade.

- Johana, tell us a little about your professional path: how long have you been trading on Forex?

- I have been aware of trading since 2006 and I love making money online, in the Forex market. The world of Forex trading is quite interesting for me. It is a work with its pros and cons.

- Have you studied trading on your own or attended courses, webinars?

- I learned about the Forex market from the Internet and joined social media trading groups. I almost immediately tried to trade on real accounts by trying indicators from the group in social networks. The results were not so high. So further on I tried to work on it myself and finally developed my own strategy. At the moment Forex is my constant source of income.

- Tell me, please, what is the name of the city (village) where you live? How old are you, are you a family man, what are your hobbies besides Forex?

- I live in the village of Bolon, Central Java. I have 4 children, I’m 37 years old. In my spare time, I help my wife at home and work at the school board, I participate in improving the school’s management system. Sometimes I take project work from friends, contractors.

- Johana, in your opinion, how common is Forex trading in Indonesia?

- In my opinion, the enthusiasm and desire of Indonesians to trade on Forex market is very high. For example, I have a lot of neighbors interested in what I am doing sitting in front of my house working on my laptop.

- Would you recommend your friends to join the Battle of Traders contest? Why?

- Yes, I will start inviting my friends who took part in my training. I will monitor their progress, teach them to focus on quality, not quantity. Even on a demo account it is important to learn how to do routine work, continuously following the rules, and only then it starts to work.

- What would you like to wish NPBFX and participants of the next Battle of Traders contests?

- I would like to wish the participants of the next rounds to devote as much time as possible to improve their knowledge and analysis of the market. Do not underestimate these points even on a demo account. For NPBFX I want to wish further success, as well as to change the time of market opening, now it differs from other brokers.

- Johana, we thank you for participating in the contest and for the interview. Let trading on NPBFX real account be as successful as on your contest account!
