USD/CAD: the instrument is in correction 24.01.2020

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 moves flat, trading near 1.3125. Yesterday, the dollar declined uncertainly, losing its advantage and stepping back from local highs since December 23, 2019. CAD was under pressure after the publication of poor statistics on consumer inflation last Wednesday. The Bank of Canada base consumer price index for December accelerated its decline from –0.2% MoM to –0.4% MoM, which turned out to be worse than analysts' neutral forecasts. In annual terms, the index slowed down from +1.9% YoY to +1.7% YoY, which also turned out to be worse than experts expected.

On Friday, investors are focused on the American statistics on business activity from Markit for January. In Canada, data on the November dynamics of retail sales will be published.

Support and resistance

On the daily chart, Bollinger bands actively grow. The price range expands but not as fast as the “bullish” moods develop this week. MACD grows, maintaining a strong buy signal (the histogram is above the signal line), and tries to consolidate above the zero line. Stochastic, approaching the level of 80, reverses into a downward plane, reacting to the appearance of correctional dynamics at the end of the week.

It is better to close a part of profitable long positions. To open new deals, it is better to wait for the appearance of updated signals from technical indicators.

Resistance levels: 1.3137, 1.3157, 1.3180.

Support levels: 1.3103, 1.3078, 1.3028, 1.3000.





Trading tips

Long positions may be opened after the breakout of 1.3137 with the target at 1.3180 or 1.3200. Stop loss – 1.3115–1.3100.

Short positions may be opened after the breakdown of 1.3103 with the target at 1.3050. Stop loss – 1.3130–1.3137.

Implementation period: 2–3 days.

Brent Crude Oil: oil prices recover 29.01.2020

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

Today, during the Asian session, oil prices are growing moderately, continuing to develop the “bullish” momentum formed yesterday. The instrument also retreats from its local lows since October 21, 2019, which were renewed as a result of a five-day last week’s decline. The quotes were supported by OPEC statements that the terms of the contract to reduce energy production could be further tightened due to lower demand amid the spread of coronavirus. An additional “bullish” signal for “black gold” was the published report of the American Petroleum Institute on oil reserves. For the week of January 24, the figure fell by 4.27 million barrels after rising by 1.6 million barrels over the past period.

On Wednesday, investors are focused on the US Federal Reserve meeting on the interest rate and the official report on oil reserves from the US Department of Energy.

Support and resistance

On the daily chart, Bollinger bands are steadily declining. The price range is expanding but not as fast as the "bearish" moods develop. The MACD indicator maintains a downward direction and a poor sell signal (the histogram is below the signal line). Stochastic is reversing upwards near the zero line, indicating that the instrument is oversold in the ultra-short term.

A of developing large-scale upward correction is possible in the short term.

Resistance levels: 60.84, 61.29, 62.00, 62.95.

Support levels: 60.00, 59.00, 58.49, 57.57.





Trading tips

Long positions may be opened after the breakout of 60.84 or 61.29 with the target at 62.95 or 63.50. Stop loss – 60.00.

Short positions may be opened after a rebound from 60.84 and a breakdown of 60.00 with the targets at 58.49–58.00. Stop loss – 61.00.

Implementation period: 2–3 days.

NZD/USD: New Zealand dollar declines 31.01.2020

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

Today, during the Asian session, the NZD/USD pair is falling, continuing to develop an active “bearish” impulse formed at the end of the last trading week. Now, the New Zealand dollar has lost about 0.10%, trading near local lows of December 2, 2019. NZD is under pressure, despite the publication of controversial macroeconomic statistics from the United States, which is also due to the growth of anxiety about the spread of coronavirus. Macroeconomic statistics from New Zealand also negatively affect the instrument. Thus, the level of consumer confidence from ANZ in January fell from 123 to 122.7 points, which turned out to be worse than the average expectations of analysts.

Support and resistance

On the daily chart, Bollinger bands are steadily declining. The price range is expanding but not as fast as the downward dynamics develop in the short/medium term. The MACD indicator goes down, maintaining a strong sell signal (the histogram is below the signal line). Stochastic maintains a downward trend but is near its lows, which signals an increase in risks associated with the oversold New Zealand dollar in the ultra-short term.

It is better to keep the current short positions in the nearest time intervals until trading signals from the indicators are clarified.

Resistance levels: 0.6500, 0.6521, 0.6539, 0.6553.

Support levels: 0.6464, 0.6436, 0.6400.





Trading tips

Long positions may be opened after a rebound from 0.6464 and a breakout of 0.6500 with the target at 0.6553 or 0.6580. Stop loss – 0.6464–0.6450. Implementation period: 2–3 days.

Short positions may be opened after the breakdown of 0.6464–0.6450 with the target at 0.6400. Stop loss is no further than 0.6500. Implementation period: 1–2 days.

GBP/USD: the instrument is consolidating 03.02.2020

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 declines slightly against USD during today’s Asian session, correcting down after a confident “bullish” end of the past week. Last Friday, GBP showed strong growth, updating local highs from January 7. At the same time, there were few fundamental reasons for positive dynamics. GBP was most supported by Consumer Credit statistics. December credit volumes rose from GBP 0.653B pounds to GBP 1.218B, which was significantly better than the expectations of 0.914B. Mortgage Approvals for the same period increased from 65.514K to 67.241K with a forecast of 65.7K. Investors are focused on statistics on business activity in the UK and the USA for January.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart show moderate growth. The price range is expanding; however, it fails to catch the surge of last week’s “bearish” sentiments. MACD indicator is growing preserving a stable buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic keeps its upward direction but is rapidly approaching its highs, which points to risks of the overbought GBP in the ultra-short term.

Existing long positions should be kept in the short and/or ultra-short term until the situation is clear.

Resistance levels: 1.3208, 1.3245, 1.3300, 1.3349.

Support levels: 1.3151, 1.3100, 1.3055, 1.3000.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the rebound from the support level of 1.3151, with the subsequent breakout of 1.3208. Take profit – 1.3300. Stop loss – 1.3151.

A breakdown of 1.3151 may be a signal for new sales with target at 1.3055 or 1.3030. Stop loss – 1.3200 or 1.3208.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

Brent Crude Oil: prices are in a correction 05.02.2020

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

Today, during the Asian session, oil prices are growing slightly, retreating from record lows of January 2019, renewed the day before. Now the instrument has added about 0.45% and is testing the level of 55.00 for a breakout. The quotes are supported by the hope for additional reduction in production by OPEC+. At the moment, the production may be reduced by an additional 500K barrels per day. Meanwhile, the forecasts remain disappointing. So, yesterday, BP Finance Director Brian Gilvary said that due to the spread of coronavirus, oil consumption will decrease by 0.5% during the year.

The prices are under pressure of the ADP report on oil reserves released in the USA. According to the report, over the week of January 31, energy reserves increased by 4.18 million barrels after a decrease of 4.27 million barrels over the past period.

Support and resistance

On the daily chart, Bollinger bands are steadily declining. The price range is expanding, letting the "bears" renew record lows. The MACD indicator goes downwards, maintaining a strong sell signal (the histogram is below the signal line). Stochastic, approaching its lows, reversed into a horizontal plane, indicating that the instrument may become oversold in the ultra-short term.

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

Resistance levels: 56.00, 57.29, 59.00, 60.00.

Support levels: 54.20, 53.40, 52.00.





Trading tips

Long positions may be opened after a rebound from 54.20 and a breakout of 56.00 with the target at 59.00. Stop loss – 54.20. Implementation period: 2–3 days.

Short positions may be opened after the breakdown of 54.20 with the target at 52.00. Stop loss – 55.50. Implementation period: 1–2 days.

USD/JPY: USD maintains an uptrend 07.02.2020

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 a slight decline against JPY during today's Asian session, correcting after strong growth since the beginning of the week, which led to the renewal of local highs on the instrument of January 22. USD decline is technical in nature, as traders take their long profits before the weekend.

Meanwhile, macroeconomic statistics from Japan remain mixed. Overall Household Spending in December 2019 decreased by 4.8% YoY after a decrease of 2% YoY in November. Analysts had expected a slight improvement in the dynamics of the indicator and a decrease of only 1.7% YoY. Coincident Index in December remained at the previous level of 94.7 points against the forecast of growth to 95.9 points. Leading Economic Index for the same period increased from 90.8 to 91.6 points, which turned out to be better than neutral market forecasts.

Support and resistance

On the D1 chart, Bollinger Bands are reversing horizontally. The price range is trying to consolidate, but remains rather spacious for the current level of activity in the market. MACD indicator is growing preserving a stable buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic, having reached the level of 100, reversed into the horizontal plane, indicating strong overbought USD 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: 110.00, 110.20, 110.40, 110.66.

Support levels: 109.75, 109.42, 109.25, 109.00.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 110.00. Take profit – 110.40 or 110.50. Stop loss – 109.75 or 109.60. Implementation time: 1-2 days.

The rebound from 110.00 as from resistance, with the subsequent breakdown of 109.75, can become a signal to new sales with target at 109.25 or 109.00. Stop loss – 110.20. Implementation time: 2-3 days.

AUD/USD: AUD is correcting 10.02.2020

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 growing against USD during today’s Asian session, retreating from new record lows since 2009, updated at the end of last week. The instrument adds about 0.35%, testing 0.6700 for a breakout. In addition to a number of technical factors, macroeconomic statistics from China provide strong support for AUD. Last Friday, the Chinese economy showed a sharp increase in exports (9.1% YoY), and today it supports consumer sentiment with consumer inflation statistics. In January, Consumer Price Index rose by 1.4% MoM and by 5.4% YoY, which was significantly better than market expectations of 0.8% MoM and 4.9% YoY. Today, interesting statistics from Australia are not expected, but on Tuesday there will be data on the dynamics of Australia’s Home Loans for December.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate a stable decrease. The price range is narrowing from below, reflecting the emergence of ambiguous trading dynamics in the short term. MACD is reversing upwards preserving a sell signal (located below the signal line). Stochastic almost ignores the appearance of the correctional growth of AUD during today’s Asian session. The indicator still maintains a confident downtrend, indicating the preservation of the “bearish” momentum 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: 0.6700, 0.6723, 0.6746, 0.6776.

Support levels: 0.6677, 0.6650, 0.6620, 0.6600.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 0.6700 or 0.6723. Take profit – 0.6776 or 0.6800. Stop loss – 0.6677 or 0.6660.

The rebound from 0.6700 as from resistance with the subsequent breakdown of 0.6677 or 0.6660 can become a signal for new sales with target at 0.6620 or 0.6600. Stop loss – 0.6700 or 0.6715.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

Brent Crude Oil: oil prices recover 12.02.2020

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

Today, during the Asian session, oil prices are growing moderately, continuing to develop the “bullish” momentum formed yesterday. The quotes were able to deviate from the year’s lows amid some improvement in the situation with the spread of coronavirus. Optimism regarding the epidemic was also supported by the chief medical adviser to the PRC government, who suggested that the peak of the virus would occur in February, after which it would be possible to count on a gradual weakening of the epidemic.

In turn, a report published on Tuesday by the American Petroleum Institute prevented a more confident growth of the instrument. In the week of February 7, oil reserves grew by 6 million barrels after rising by 4.18 million barrels over the past period. Today, the official report on oil reserves from the US Department of Energy will be released.

Support and resistance

On the daily chart, Bollinger bands are steadily declining. The price range is narrowing, reflecting the emergence of upward dynamics in the ultra-short term. The MACD indicator is growing, maintaining a poor buy signal (the histogram is above the signal line). Stochastic demonstrates similar dynamics, retreating from its lows, signaling that the instrument is oversold in the ultra-short term.

The developing a full-fledged uptrend is possible in the short and/or ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 56.00, 57.06, 59.00, 60.00.

Support levels: 54.20, 53.46, 52.00.





Trading tips

Long positions may be opened after the breakout of the level of 56.00 with the targets at 58.00 or 59.00. Stop loss – 55.00 or 54.20.

Short positions may be opened after the breakdown of the level of 54.20 with the target at 52.00. Stop loss – 55.50.

Implementation period: 2–3 days.

USD/JPY: the pair is trading in the flat 14.02.2020

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 shows near-zero dynamics against JPY during today’s Asian session, consolidating near 109.80. Demand for USD and JPY again rose significantly after the publication of updated statistics on the number of patients with coronavirus, which frightened investors with a sharp surge in the number of infected. It is curious that macroeconomic statistics from the USA practically did not support USD. At the same time, the Consumer Price Index in January accelerated from 2.3% YoY to 2.5% YoY, which turned out to be better than market expectations. Consumer Price Index Excluding Food and Energy in January rose by 0.2% MoM and 2.3% YoY, which also turned out to be slightly better than forecasts of 0.2% MoM and 2.2% YoY.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands on D1 chart show moderate growth. The price range expands slightly, freeing a path to new local highs for the "bulls". MACD reversed downwards having formed a weak sell signal (located below the signal line). Stochastic decreases more confidently, which, however, weakly correlates with the real trend in the market.

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

Resistance levels: 110.00, 110.20, 110.40.

Support levels: 109.75, 109.52, 109.25, 109.00.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 110.00. Take profit – 110.40 or 110.50. Stop-loss – 109.75.

A breakdown of 109.75 or 109.60 may be a signal for new sales with target at 109.25 or 109.10. Stop loss should be placed no further than 110.00.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

Brent Crude Oil: oil prices rise 17.02.2020

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 significantly, renewing local highs since January 31 and fixing the first weekly increase this year.

The instrument was supported by investors' hopes for the fall in the economic damage caused by the spread of coronavirus. In particular, traders are optimistic about new incentives from the Central Bank of China, which had previously taken a series of stabilization measures. The markets also expect that in response to the expected decline in oil demand in the first quarter of this year, OPEC will be able to counter the revised agreement of oil production reducing.

Support and resistance

On the daily chart, Bollinger Bands smoothly reverse into a horizontal plane. The price range is narrowing, reflecting the emergence of upward dynamics in the short/ultra-short term. The MACD indicator is growing, maintaining a strong buy signal (the histogram is above the signal line). Stochastic reached its highs and reversed into a horizontal plane, indicating that the instrument may become overbought in the ultra-short term.

The 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: 57.78, 59.00, 60.00, 60.84.

Support levels: 57.06, 56.00, 54.20, 53.46.





Trading tips

Long positions may be opened after the breakout of the level of 57.78 with the target at 60.00 or 60.84. Stop loss – 56.50–56.00.

Short positions may be opened after a rebound from the level of 57.78 and a breakdown of the level of 57.06 with the target at 55.00 or 54.20. Stop loss – 58.00–58.50.

Implementation period: 2–3 days.

GBP is trading with ambiguous dynamics during today’s Asian session, continuing to consolidate near 1.3000. Short-term support for the instrument is provided by the expectation of positive changes in the fiscal policy of the UK government after the appointment of the new Minister of Finance Rishi Sunak. Sunak confirmed his intention to introduce the new state budget on March 11, which strengthened optimism in the market.

Macroeconomic statistics published on Tuesday turned out to be contradictory and, on the whole, contributed to the development of negative dynamics for the instrument. In December, Average Earnings Including Bonus slowed down from 3.2% 3MoY to 2.9% 3MoY, which turned out to be worse than market expectations of 3% 3MoY. At the same time, the Unemployment Rate remained at the previous level of 3.8%, and Claimant Count Change in January increased from 2.6K to 5.5K, which is significantly lower than market expectations of 22.6K.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate a gradual decrease. The price range is narrowing, reflecting the emergence of ambiguous dynamics of trading in the short term. MACD indicator is growing preserving a weak buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic showed a rebound from the level of “80” and reversed downwards, pointing to the risks of corrective decline 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: 1.3000, 1.3030, 1.3068, 1.3100.

Support levels: 1.2970, 1.2940, 1.2900, 1.2870.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 1.3030. Take profit – 1.3100. Stop loss – 1.3000.

The breakdown of 1.2970 may serve as a signal to new sales with the target at 1.2900. Stop loss – 1.3010.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

USD/CHF: dollar is being corrected 21.02.2020

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

Current trend

Today, during the Asian session, the USD/CHF pair is falling within the correction, retreating from local highs of mid-December 2019. The development of the dynamics is facilitated by technical factors of closing of the profitable USD long positions, while there are not enough fundamental reasons for the growth of the franc.

Swiss macroeconomic statistics released yesterday was to be controversial. Investors were optimistic about data showing growth in exports and trade surplus for January. Exports grew by 20,676 million francs, and the trade balance added 4,778 million francs after an increase of 1975 million over the past period. Analysts expected growth of 3,361 million francs. In turn, the volume of Q4 2019 industrial production in Switzerland significantly slowed down from +7.9% YoY to +1.6% YoY, causing concern about the prospects of the indicator.

Support and resistance

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 rose sharply at yesterday’s trading, completely leveling the negative dynamics of the instrument at the end of last trading week. A slight increase can be seen during today’s Asian session; however, the “bullish” activity is noticeably reduced. The reason for the surge in purchasing activity for the instrument was a sudden decrease in the interest rate by the Fed after a conference of G7 finance ministers. The US regulator set a precedent, and now investors are even more nervous, expecting similar actions from other banks. Today, investors are focused on macroeconomic statistics from the US on business activity from ISM and Markit. In addition, closer to the end of the afternoon session, the Fed will publish its updated economic review, the so-called Beige Book.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands on D1 chart show moderate growth. The price range is narrowing, reflecting ambiguous dynamics of trading in the short term. MACD indicator is recovering forming a new buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic keeps the uptrend, approaching its highs rapidly, which may indicate growing risks associated with overbought instrument in the ultra-short term.

Current indications do not contradict further growth of the instrument in the near future.

Resistance levels: 1660.15, 1675.00, 1689.11.

Support levels: 1640.00, 1630.00, 1620.00, 1611.06.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 1660.15. Take-profit – 1689.11. Stop-loss – 1648.00.

A breakdown of 1640.00 or 1630.00 may be a signal for new sales with target at 1611.06 or 1602.18. Stop-loss – 1645.00 or 1655.00.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

GBP/USD: GBP is strengthening 06.03.2020

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 shows a slight increase against USD during today’s Asian session, trading near local highs of February 26, updated yesterday. GBP is supported by weakening expectations of lowering interest rates by the Bank of England. The new head of the British regulator, Andrew Bailey, who is due to take office March 16, said the Bank of England should not rush to cut rates after the Fed. According to Bailey, it is necessary to assess the risks of the spread of the virus and its economic consequences. The instrument is supported by weak positions of USD, vulnerable after an unexpected decrease in the interest rate by the Fed on Tuesday.

The growth of GBP above 1.3000 is hindered by uncertainty around the trade negotiations between the UK and the EU. Boris Johnson remains adamant and declares his readiness to leave the negotiations without an agreement if the EU does not reduce its requirements.

Support and resistance

In the D1 chart, Bollinger Bands are reversing horizontally. The price range is narrowing, reflecting the emergence of ambiguous dynamics of trading in the short term.

The rebound from 1.2970 as from resistance with the subsequent breakdown of 1.2940 or 1.2930 can become a signal for new sales with target at 1.2870 or 1.2848. Stop-loss – 1.2970 or 1.2980.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.
