XAU/USD: gold prices are consolidating 11.03.2020

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 prices are recovering during today’s Asian session, correcting after a sharp decline at the beginning of the week, when quotes retreated from their record highs since December 2012. The instrument adds about 0.77% and is actively testing the level of 1660.00 for a breakout. Hopes for new measures to support the global economy have a positive effect on the dynamics of USD. At the same time, investors remain wary of the uncertain situation with the coronavirus epidemic and the recent collapse in oil prices caused by the price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia. Finally, gold is supported by expectations of the next reduction in the interest rate by the Fed at the meeting on March 18.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands on D1 chart show moderate growth. The price range expands from above, freeing a path to new local highs for the “bulls”. MACD is declining keeping a weak sell signal (located below the signal line). Stochastic is slightly more stable and is located in the middle of its area.

Technical indicators do not contradict the further development of the correctional decline in the short and/or ultra-short term. Nevertheless, to open new short positions it is better to wait for the appearance of additional signals.

Resistance levels: 1660.15, 1675.00, 1689.11, 1703.07.

Support levels: 1640.00, 1630.00, 1620.00, 1611.06.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 1675.00. Take-profit – 1703.07. Stop-loss – 1660.15.

The return of “bearish” trend with the breakdown of 1640.00 may become a signal for new sales with the target at 1620.00 or 1611.06. Stop-loss – 1650.00.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

EUR/USD: EUR is corrected 13.03.2020

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 shows corrective growth against USD, recovering from an active decline. The growth of EUR is facilitated by the weakening of USD after Donald Trump’s speech announcing a ban on entering the US from 26 eurozone countries for a month, and allowing the introduction of additional tax and credit exemptions for small and medium-sized enterprises. Investors had expected to hear about new measures to combat coronavirus.

Yesterday, the ECB held a monetary policy meeting, at which Christine Lagarde announced new measures to stimulate the economy. The Bank kept rates at the previous levels and noted that it would increase the volume of additional net asset purchases by EUR 120B. Lagarde called on EU leaders to take decisive actions aimed at stabilizing the economic situation in the region.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart show stable growth. The price range is narrowing, reflecting the emergence of ambiguous dynamics of trading in the short term. MACD is going down preserving a stable sell signal (located below the signal line). Stochastic maintains a downward direction, gradually responding to the appearance of corrective dynamics, trying to reverse into a horizontal plane.

Technical indicators don’t contradict the further development of the downtrend in the short and/or ultra-short term. However, it is not advisable to open new short positions, given the emergence of corrective sentiments and the oversold EUR in the ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 1.1200, 1.1247, 1.1284, 1.1343.

Support levels: 1.1150, 1.1100, 1.1038, 1.1000.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 1.1247 or 1.1284. Take-profit – 1.1343 or 1.1393. Stop-loss – 1.1200 or 1.1180.

The return of “bearish” trend with the breakdown of 1.1150 may become a signal for new sales with target at 1.1038 or 1.1000. Stop-loss – 1.1220.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

USD/JPY: the instrument is consolidating 16.03.2020

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 ambiguous dynamics against JPY during today’s Asian session, trading near the opening level at 107.00. Investors take a lead from a sudden decision of the US Fed to lower interest rates to zero, which should help a weakening global economy amid the further spread of the coronavirus epidemic. Other leading regulators come forward with similar measures. Earlier, the Bank of Japan announced a new program of purchases of government bonds worth JPY 200B, and also announced the issuance of JPY 1.5T of short-term loans for small and medium-sized businesses.

Moderate support for JPY at the beginning of the week is provided by macroeconomic statistics published in Japan. Machinery Orders in January grew by 2.9% MoM after a decrease of 12.5% MoM last month. Analysts had expected negative dynamics to remain at –1.6% MoM. In annual terms, the decline slowed from –3.5% YoY to –0.3% YoY, which also turned out to be better than forecast of –0.5% YoY.

Support and resistance

On the D1 chart, the Bollinger Bands are gradually reversing horizontally. The price range is narrowing, reflecting the emergence of ambiguous dynamics of trading in the short term. MACD indicator is growing preserving a stable buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic, approaching the level of “80”, is prone to reversing downwards, signaling the overbought USD in the ultra-short term.

One should wait for clarification of the situation to open new transactions.

Resistance levels: 107.76, 108.49, 109.00, 110.00.

Support levels: 106.83, 105.90, 105.00, 104.19.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 107.76. Take-profit – 110.00 or 110.40. Stop-loss – 106.50 or 106.00.

A breakdown of 105.90 may be a signal for new sales with target at 104.19 or 103.67. Stop-loss – 107.00.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

EUR/USD: EUR corrects 18.03.2020

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 growing against USD, correcting after another decline yesterday when it was under pressure from the depressing statistics on business activity from ZEW. German ZEW Economic Sentiment collapsed from 8.7 points to –49.5 points in March, worse than expectations of –26.4 points. German ZEW Economic Sentiment for the same period fell from –15.7 to –43.1 points with a forecast of –30 points. ZEW Economic Sentiment in the euro area in March fell from 10.4 to –49.5 points with a forecast of a decrease of -35.4 points.

The coronavirus pandemic continues to rage in Europe, pushing states to take new measures to support the economy and tighten quarantine. Many European companies announced suspension of production for several weeks trying to minimize their losses. Today, European investors are focused on the February statistics on consumer inflation in the EU.

Support and resistance

On the D1 chart Bollinger Bands are reversing downwards. The price range is expanding, trying to keep pace with the surge of “bearish” sentiment. MACD goes down preserving a stable sell signal (located below the signal line). The indicator is trying to consolidate below the zero level. Stochastic, having approached the level of 20, reversed into a horizontal plane, signaling about risks of oversold EUR in the ultra-short term.

Existing short positions should be kept in the short term until the signals from technical indicators clear up.

Resistance levels: 1.1054, 1.1100, 1.1200, 1.1247.

Support levels: 1.1000, 1.0954, 1.0900, 1.0862.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 1.1054 or 1.1100. Take-profit – 1.1200 or 1.1247. Stop-loss – 1.1000 or 1.0970.

The rebound from 1.1054 as from resistance followed with breakdown of 1.1000 can become a signal to new sales with target at 1.0900 or 1.0862. Stop-loss – 1.1070.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

AUD/USD: the instrument is correcting 20.03.2020

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 strengthens against USD during today’s Asian session, retreating from record lows updated the day before. The corrective sentiment on the instrument began to strengthen on Thursday, which allowed AUD to win back most of the losses. The Reserve Bank of Australia announced next stimulus measures following other global regulators. The interest rate was reduced from 0.50% to 0.25%, while traders expressed cautious optimism in connection with the publication of a relatively good Australian labor market report for February. However, the markets agree that the February statistics weakly reflects the real situation in the economy and the March data will be significantly worse.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate a stable decrease. The price range is widening but does not conform to the development of the “bearish” trend yet. The MACD indicator is reversing upwards, reacting to the appearance of correctional dynamics at the end of the current week; however, it retains its sell signal (the histogram is located below the signal line). Stochastic is showing similar dynamics, retreating from its lows, indicating the oversold AUD in the ultra-short term.

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

Resistance levels: 0.6000, 0.6078, 0.6183, 0.6303.

Support levels: 0.5800, 0.5662, 0.5508.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 0.6000. Take-profit – 0.6303. Stop-loss – 0.5900 or 0.5860.

The return of “bearish” trend with the breakdown of 0.5800 may become a signal for new sales with the target at 0.5508. Stop-loss – 0.5950.

Implementation time: 2-3 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.

GBP/USD: GBP shows flat dynamics 23.03.2020

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 is showing uncertain growth against USD during today’s Asian session, trying to win back losses at the opening. The recovery of the instrument proceeds against the background of the growth of corrective sentiment, as investors calmed down after the active support measures undertaken by the leading regulators. Last Thursday, the Bank of England lowered rates to a record level of 0.1% and significantly expanded its quantitative easing program in an effort to minimize the damage from the coronavirus crisis. It is not yet clear how these steps will affect the UK economy, but the markets still got the main signal – politicians and economists are ready to undertake emergency measures to deal with the crisis.

Last Friday’s macroeconomic statistics from the UK was ambiguous. Public Sector Net Borrowing increased from GBP –12.433B to –0.394B. However, the figure was better than the forecast of +0.85B pounds.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate a stable decrease. The price range is narrowing from above, remaining too spacious for the current activity level in the market. MACD indicator is reversing upwards forming a new buy signal (the histogram is about to consolidate above the signal line). Stochastic retreats from its lows, indicating the corrective growth development in the ultra-short term.

The uptrend may emerge in the short and/or ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 1.1700, 1.1800, 1.2000, 1.2077.

Support levels: 1.1531, 1.1409, 1.1280.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 1.1700 or 1.1800. Take-profit – 1.2000, 1.2077 or 1.2200. Stop-loss – 1.1600 or 1.1531, 1.1500. Implementation time: 2-3 days.

A breakdown of 1.1531 or 1.1500 may be a signal for new sales with target at 1.1280, 1.1200 or 1.1150. Stop-loss – 1.1700 or 1.1750. Implementation time: 1-2 days.

NZD/USD: the instrument is strengthening 25.03.2020

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

NZD is showing moderate growth against USD during today’s Asian session, updating local highs of March 18. Active support for the instrument is still provided by the growth of correctional sentiments in USD against the background of the aggressive Fed policy aimed at helping the US economy. However, the general tension in the market associated with the risks of the further spread of the coronavirus pandemic remains.

Published on Wednesday, macroeconomic statistics from New Zealand slightly supported NZD. In February, export volumes grew by USD 4.92B, accelerating from the previous value of USD 4.689B. Imports for the same period slowed from USD 5.103B to USD 4.33B, which led to a slight increase in the trade surplus in February. In monthly terms, in February, the trade balance entered the green zone at USD 594M after a deficit of USD 414M in January.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate active decrease. The price range is narrowing, reflecting the emergence of ambiguous dynamics of trading in the short term. MACD indicator is growing preserving a stable buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic is showing similar dynamics, quickly approaching its highs, indicating the risks of overbought NZD 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: 0.5915, 0.6000, 0.6050, 0.6120.

Support levels: 0.5805, 0.5690, 0.5589, 0.5467.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 0.5915. Take-profit – 0.6100 or 0.6120. Stop-loss – 0.5805.

Rebound from 0.5915 as from resistance, followed by a breakdown of 0.5805 may become a signal for new sales with the target at 0.5589. Stop-loss – 0.5915.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

Who won the Battle of Traders contest on demo accounts in February 2020? We share our impressions and the results

Hello, dear Forumers!

We present the results of the monthly Battle of Traders contest on demo accounts from NPBFX for February 2020. Who managed to be the champion among the participants and get $1000 to the real account? Who was among the top ten strongest traders in the the contest?

Although February is the shortest month of the year, it has not reduced the number of participants. 1837 traders were competing for the prize fund!

The winner of the contest was the trader with the nickname Rafkat1977 (account number 159116). It is not the first time that he has taken part in the contest this year. However, in January he failed to make it to the top ten. The second attempt of the trader was rewarded with the first place and the positive financial result of $150494.02.

The ten winners also included participants with the nicknames: Victory44, PETRONIK, fazkev, Han, Pash, livermore2020, Doggie, Lungelo, igcom.



As can be seen from table of results, traders' trading results from 2nd 6th place differ by less than 15%. The same pattern can be observed in the statistics of the trading accounts of the contestants from 7th to 10th places. Here the difference in yield figures is less than 10%! One can only imagine what emotions and competitive spirit captured the winners of February on the last days of the competition, when every trade and every $100 was important in the battle! The correct trading strategy and the ability to control emotions helped the best traders of February to enter the top 10 and get the prize money to the real account.

NPBFX congratulates the winners and thanks all the traders who took part in the contest! Anyone who feels like can try to win in the Battle of Traders contest in March and compete for valuable prizes: the newest iPhone 11 Pro and the prize fund of $2,500.

The goal is to be ahead of the competitors in terms of profit, making at least 10 deals and increasing the deposit by 30% or more.

XAU/USD: gold prices are consolidating 27.03.2020

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 prices show a moderate decline during today's Asian session, retreating from local highs, updated the day before. The instrument loses about 0.28%, testing the level of 1620.00 for a breakdown. Gold is corrected after explosive growth at the beginning of the week, due to the return of investors after a period of sales. The panic in the market subsided slightly against the backdrop of the US government taking significant measures to support the economy, which pushed the market to diversify. Leading analytical companies noted the possibility of buying a precious metal. For example, Goldman Sachs analysts expect that in the next few months gold can reach 1800.00.

Support and resistance

On the D1 chart, the Bollinger Bands are gradually reversing horizontally. The price range is narrowing, reflecting appearance of multi-directional dynamics in the short/mid-term. MACD indicator is growing preserving a stable buy signal (located above the signal line and above the zero level). Stochastic, having reached its highs, reversed to the horizontal plane, indicating risks of corrective decline in the short and/or ultra-short term.

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

Resistance levels: 1644.36, 1660.15, 1675.00, 1689.11.

Support levels: 1620.00, 1600.00, 1579.25, 1562.70.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the rebound from the support level of 1620.00, with the subsequent breakout of 1644.36. Take-profit – 1675.00 or 1689.11. Stop-loss – 1620.00.

A breakdown of 1600.00 may be a signal for new sales with target at 1562.70 or 1547.20. Stop-loss – 1620.00 or 1630.00.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

The winner of the February Battle of Traders is a novice trader from Bashkortostan! Read how he managed it in the interview.

Only a professional trader with extensive experience can win the contest. To win, you need a proven trading strategy. Other participants can be outperformed in terms of profit only by taking greater risks.Rafkat Faritovich Rafikov from Bashkortostan destroyed these three common myths about the Battle of Traders contest when he won the contest in February! He started studying Forex trading very recently in December 2019. He has no specialized financial or mathematical education. Rafkat Faritovich has not either worked out a trading strategy of his own yet. Luck probably played a great part in the win. But the winner realises that, in addition to luck, good trading conditions on the contest account in NPBFX, risk control, as well as the high volatility of gold in February helped him to win. The trader opened most of his deals on gold (XAU/USD). Taking into account his brief trading experience, Rafkat Faritovich's result can be considered as excellent! All he regrets is, “Almost got to the iPhone”. In the interview with the winner you will read about where and how he learned about trading, what personal qualities he considers to be the most important for success in trading and what profession he has.



- Rafkat Faritovitch, Please tell us how you found out about the Battle of Traders contest and why you decided to take part in it?

- I was invited to participate in the contest by my personal manager. I agreed, because I wanted to make money and try myself out. I was already registered at NPBFX before that.

- What emotions did the news of your victory evoke? Have you already talked about it to some friends and the family?

- I was very happy with the victory, very happy! Too bad that I couldn't win the iPhone, didn't get a little bit! (is laughing)

I haven't told any family members about the victory yet.

- You've passed all stages of the contest: from registration to winner's position. What can you say about the terms and organization of the contest in our company?

- Everything is thought out very well. The contest is especially useful for beginners.

The terms of the contest are very good, it's easy to trade. Sometimes there is too much gambling. But I take the risks into consideration. After moving to 10th place I set a goal to be first and achieved it!

- In February you showed an excellent trading result, by increasing the initial deposit of $5,000 thirtyfold (to $150 494)! What trading strategy did you use? What is the essence of it?

- I don't have my own trading strategy at the moment. I opened the deals on a retest: twice the wave and on the third I opened.

- The total number of deals on your account is 112. More than half of the deals, to be exact 62, you have opened on the XAU/USD currency pair. What is the reason for your choice in favour of gold?

- The volatility of gold was good during the contest. Gold was growing a lot for a week, and next week there was a fall. I caught that situation and was lucky.

- Tell us how you organized your trading on the contest account technically: you used the MT4 mobile terminal, managed the account manually or with the help of robot advisors?

- I didn't use any advisors. Why would I need them? I manually opened all the trades myself. I only traded from the phone – I have no computer, no laptop, nothing.

- As far as I know you also participated in the Battle of Traders contest in January but you were not among the winners. Was your trading strategy different for the first and the second time?

- Yes, it was. I was watching strategies on YouTube, tried to replicate on my account, as I remember it. I constantly study the information on video clips. Even before our conversation I was also studying.

- Rafkat Faritovitch, did you check online monitoring of the Battle of Traders participants during the contest? How useful was it?

- Yes, I constantly reviewed the monitoring data. Especially, when I got to 10th place. Then I became focused on trading. Of course, the monitoring was useful.

- How much time per day did you usually spend on trading in the contest?

- I was holding the phone in my hands for about two hours a day. I was monitoring the account: if the trade went down– I closed it, if it went up– I held on to it, moving to stop losses and take profits.

- 1000$ have already been credited to your real trading account at NPBFX. Are you going to trade on it in the same way as on a demo account in the contest?

EUR/USD: EUR remains under pressure 01.04.2020

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 declines against USD during today’s Asian session, developing a “bearish” impulse that formed at the beginning of the week, when the instrument retreated from its local highs since March 17. EUR loses significantly to USD amid raging coronavirus epidemic; however, investors’ attention is gradually shifting to macroeconomic indicators from the US. Macroeconomic statistics show negative results not only in the USA. Consumer inflation in the euro area declined from 1.2% YoY to 0.7% YoY. Investors drew attention to the surprisingly stable results on the labor market from Germany. The number of unemployed grew by only 1K, while analysts expected a growth of 29K. Unemployment Rate remained unchanged at 5%. Such strong results are due to the fact that data collection in Germany was completed before the start of national quarantine, and therefore they do not reflect the real situation.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate a gradual decrease. The price range is narrowing, reflecting the flat dynamics of trading in the short term. MACD indicator is growing preserving a buy signal (located above the signal line). The indicator is trying to consolidate above the zero level. Stochastic, having rebounded from its highs, maintains a confident downtrend, signaling in favor of the development of corrective decline in the ultra-short term.

Technical indicators do not contradict the emergence of a full-scale downtrend in the short and/or ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 1.1054, 1.1100, 1.1146, 1.1212.

Support levels: 1.1000, 1.0954, 1.0900, 1.0862.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 1.1054 or 1.1100. Take-profit – 1.1212 or 1.1250, 1.1284. Stop-loss – 1.1000 or 1.0954.

The breakdown of 1.1000 or 1.0954 may serve as a signal to new sales with target at 1.0800. Stop-loss – 1.1054 or 1.1100.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

Brent Crude Oil: oil prices are trying to correct 03.04.2020

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

Brent crude oil prices are trading lower during today’s Asian session, correcting after a sharp rise in the instrument yesterday. On Thursday, quotes increased sharply after statements by Donald Trump about a possible agreement between Russia and Saudi Arabia on production volumes. However, immediately after the publication of Donald Trump’s statements, the instrument again declined and by the end of yesterday's trading session lost most of its positions. Investors have not yet received any official evidence that Saudi Arabia will reduce oil production. However, yesterday it became known that Riyadh plans to convene an emergency meeting of OPEC+, where the United States will be one of the participants.

Support and resistance

In the D1 chart, Bollinger Bands are reversing horizontally. The price range is narrowing, reflecting flat nature of trading in the short term. MACD indicator is growing preserving a stable buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic is showing similar dynamics, retreating from its lows, indicating the oversold instrument in the ultra-short term.

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

Resistance levels: 28.69, 30.00, 31.64, 34.22.

Support levels: 27.00, 25.00, 22.51.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 28.69 or 30.00. Take-profit – 34.22 or 36.00, 37.00. Stop-loss – 27.00 or 26.00.

A breakdown of 25.00 may become a signal for returning to sales with target at 22.00 or 21.00. Stop-loss – 28.00.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

GBP/USD: general review 06.04.2020

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 today shows ambiguous dynamics, consolidating after a surge of “bearish” activity at the end of last week. Investors sold GBP on Friday amid worsening situation with coronavirus in the UK. Markets hope that the country will be able to overcome the peak of the epidemic in the next two weeks, but so far there is little evidence of this.

Investors also focused on the March US labor market report on Friday. As expected, the report was negative, but did not prevent the further strengthening of USD. Nonfarm Payrolls in March collapsed by 701K after rising by 275K in February. The Unemployment Rate jumped from 3.5% to 4.4%, which was worse than forecasts of 4%. Labor Force Participation Rate also fell from 63.4% to 62.7% with a forecast of 63.3%. Average Hourly Earnings in March surprisingly increased by 0.4% MoM after rising 0.3% MoM in February.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart show moderate growth. The price range is narrowing, reflecting flat nature of trading. MACD is reversing downwards forming a new sell signal (trying to consolidate below the signal line). Stochastic shows more confident dynamics and maintains a downtrend with a sell signal. The indicator is rapidly approaching its lows, which may indicate growing risks of GBP being oversold in the ultra-short term.

The development of a full-fledged downtrend is possible in the short and/or ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 1.2329, 1.2484, 1.2600, 1.2800.

Support levels: 1.2200, 1.2077, 1.2000, 1.1800.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the rebound from 1.2200 with the subsequent breakout of 1.2329. Take-profit – 1.2600 or 1.2700, 1.2800. Stop-loss – 1.2077, 1.2000.

A breakdown of 1.2200 may be a signal for new sales with target at 1.1900 or 1.1800. Stop-loss – 1.2400 or 1.2484.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

USD/CHF: the dollar is correcting 08.04.2020

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

USD is showing moderate growth against CHF during today's Asian session, recovering from a sudden decline yesterday. The "bullish" rally of USD, which developed over 6 consecutive sessions, was interrupted by a surge of optimism in the market. Investors evaluated published statistics from Europe on the dynamics of the incidence and mortality from the virus and believed in reaching the peak of the epidemic. Nevertheless, there are still plenty of uncertainties in the market, so the demand for risk remains weak.

Today, investors are focused on the release of the Fed Meeting Minutes. Market participants expect to receive additional information about the prospects of monetary policy in the near future from the document.

Support and resistance

On the D1 chart Bollinger Bands are reversing downwards. The price range is narrowing from above, reflecting the emergence of ambiguous dynamics of trading in the ultra-short term. MACD indicator tries to reverse downwards and form a sell signal (the histogram has to consolidate below the signal line). Stochastic is ahead of the curve and at the moment has already significantly retreated from its highs, signaling that USD is overbought 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: 0.9765, 0.9847, 0.9900.

Support levels: 0.9684, 0.9628, 0.9600, 0.9500.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the rebound from the support level of 0.9684, with the subsequent breakout of 0.9765. Take-profit – 0.9900. Stop-loss – 0.9700 or 0.9684. Implementation time: 2-3 days.

The breakdown of 0.9684 may serve as a signal to new sales with the target at 0.9600 or 0.9580. Stop-loss – 0.9740 or 0.9750. Implementation time: 1-2 days.

AUD/USD: the instrument is consolidating 10.04.2020

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 shows ambiguous dynamics of trading against USD and is consolidating near local highs since March 12, updated the day before. Today, exchanges are closed in many countries due to Good Friday, so trading activity remains low. However, given the high level of volatility in the market, it is possible that in the afternoon, with the publication of US data, activity will begin to gradually recover.

During the Asian session, traders are focused on the publication of macroeconomic statistics from China. In March, Consumer Price Index slowed down from 5.2% YoY to 4.3% YoY, which turned out to be worse than expert estimates at 4.8% YoY. On a monthly basis, consumer inflation in March fell by 1.2% MoM after rising by 0.8% MoM in February. Analysts had expected negative trend to appear, but counted on only 0.7% MoM decline.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart show active growth. The price range is widening but does not conform to the development of the "bullish" trend in the short term yet. MACD indicator is growing preserving a stable buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic, having approached its highs is gradually reversing into a horizontal plane, indicating the risks of overbought USD in the ultra-short term.

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

Resistance levels: 0.6432, 0.6508, 0.6584, 0.6650.

Support levels: 0.6303, 0.6212, 0.6100, 0.6000.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 0.6432. Take profit – 0.6584 or 0.6600. Stop-loss – 0.6340.

A rebound from 0.6432 as from resistance, followed by a breakdown of 0.6340 or 0.6300 may become a signal to new sales with the target at 0.6100. Stop-loss – 0.6400 or 0.6432.

Implementation time: 2-3 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.

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

Current trend

NZD shows flat dynamics against USD during today’s Asian session, trading near the local highs since March 16, which the instrument managed to update at the end of last week. The pair is trying to consolidate below 0.6070; however, the reason for its slight correction is mainly due to technical factors.

Investors remain focused on Friday’s data on consumer inflation from the US and China. As expected, the data disappointed investors. Chinese Consumer Price Index in March declined by 1.2% MoM after an increase of 0.8% MoM in February. Analysts expected a decline of 0.7% MoM. In annual terms, the index has slowed from 5.2% YoY to 4.3% YoY, with the forecast of 4.8% YoY.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart show moderate growth. The price range is narrowing, reflecting appearance of multi-directional dynamics in the short term. MACD indicator is growing preserving a stable buy signal (located above the signal line). The indicator is trying to consolidate above the zero level. Stochastic, having reached its peak values, reversed into a horizontal plane, signaling in favor of the development of a correctional decline in the ultra-short term.

One should wait on the formation of signals for the reversal of the instrument downwards. Some of existing long positions can be closed, fixing profits.

Resistance levels: 0.6120, 0.6200, 0.6300, 0.6356.

Support levels: 0.6000, 0.5878, 0.5805, 0.5690.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 0.6120. Take-profit – 0.6300 or 0.6356. Stop-loss – 0.6000.

Rebound from 0.6120 as from resistance, followed by a breakdown of 0.6000 may become a signal for new sales with the target at 0.5878 or 0.5805. Stop-loss – 0.6100 or 0.6120.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

USD/CAD: the instrument is consolidating 15.04.2020

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

USD is showing slight growth during today’s Asian session, trying to retreat from monthly lows updated earlier this week. USD remains under pressure amid some improvement in the prospects for combating coronavirus in Europe, as well as due to the publication of a large number of disappointing macroeconomic statistics from the US.

Today investors are focused on statistics on the dynamics of retail sales and industrial production in the USA in March. A meeting of the Bank of Canada on the interest rate with a follow-up press conference is also expected. The key interest rate is expected to remain unchanged at 0.25%, while Canadian monetary authorities may announce new measures to support the economy.

Support and resistance

On the D1 chart, the Bollinger Bands are gradually reversing horizontally. The price range is expanding, without hindering the further development of “bearish” sentiment in the short term. MACD is going down preserving a stable sell signal (located below the signal line). In addition, the indicator is trying to consolidate below the zero level. Stochastic has long been located near its lows and signals in favor of the development of corrective growth in the ultra-short term.

One should wait for the situation to develop and new signals from technical indicators to appear.

Resistance levels: 1.3900, 1.4000, 1.4100, 1.4200.

Support levels: 1.3819, 1.3700, 1.3650.

The return of “bearish” trend with the breakdown of 1.3900 or 1.3819 may become a signal for new sales with the target at 1.3700 or 1.3650. Stop-loss – 1.3950 or 1.4000.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

NZD/USD: the instrument is strengthening 17.04.2020

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

NZD is showing strong growth against USD during today’s Asian session, correcting after a steady decline over the previous two sessions in a row. The instrument adds about 0.80% and tests 0.6020 for a breakout. The reason for the appearance of correctional dynamics at the end of the week is another weakening of USD in the market, while the general interest of investors in “safe” assets remains high.

Today, traders are focused on the publication of Chinese statistics. China's GDP in Q1 2020 showed a decrease of 6.8% YoY after an increase of 6% YoY in the previous period. Analysts had expected decline by 6.5% YoY. In quarterly terms, GDP decreased by 9.8% QoQ, which generally met investor expectations. Industrial Production in March decreased by 1.1% YoY, which turned out to be significantly better than the forecasts of –7.3% YoY. In February production decreased by 13.5% YoY.

Support and resistance

On the D1 chart Bollinger Bands reversed horizontally. The price range consolidated in fairly wide borders, indicating approximate balance of power in the short term. MACD recovered unsteady growth preserving a sell signal (located below the signal line). Stochastic maintains a confident downtrend, quickly approaching its lows.

It is necessary to wait for clarification of the situation in the market to open new positions.

Resistance levels: 0.6000, 0.6129, 0.6200, 0.6300.

Support levels: 0.5920, 0.5842, 0.5776, 0.5690.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 0.6040 or 0.6060. Take-profit – 0.6200 or 0.6250. Stop-loss – 0.5990 or 0.5980.

The breakdown of 0.5920 or 0.5900 may serve as a signal to new sales with target at 0.5776 or 0.5740. Stop-loss – 0.6020.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

USD/CHF: USD shows ambiguous dynamics 20.04.2020

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

During today’s Asian session, USD is showing slight growth against CHF, consolidating after a decline last Friday. High demand for USD is supporting the instrument near current levels, but further growth is limited by the gradual restoration of investor interest in risk. The pressure on USD was exerted by the new recommendations of Donald Trump that suggest the phased lifting of restrictions in several states within a month. Additional pressure on USD was exerted by news about a new drug to combat coronavirus, which also contributed to the growth of investor interest in risky assets.

Today traders are focused on the publication of Chicago Fed National Activity Index for March. Interesting statistics from Switzerland will only appear on Tuesday, when the March report on imports and exports will be released.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate flat dynamics. The price range consolidated within rather wide boundaries, which correspond to the observed dynamics in the market. MACD indicator is growing preserving a weak buy signal (located above the signal line). The indicator is also trying to consolidate above the zero level. Stochastic keeps the uptrend, but approaches its highs rapidly, which indicates the risks associated with overbought USD in the ultra-short term.

Existing long positions should be kept in the short and/or ultra-short term until the signals from technical indicators clear up.

Resistance levels: 0.9700, 0.9742, 0.9796, 0.9847.

Support levels: 0.9647, 0.9600, 0.9500.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 0.9700. Take-profit – 0.9770 or 0.9796. Stop-loss – 0.9647.

The rebound from 0.9700 as from resistance, with the subsequent breakdown of 0.9647, can become a signal to new sales with target at 0.9550 or 0.9500. Stop-loss – 0.9700 or 0.9720.

Implementation time: 2-3 days.

Brent Crude Oil: oil prices are declining 22.04.2020

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

Brent crude oil prices are declining, testing a record low at USD 16 per barrel. The weakening of quotes is due to the panic that arose on Monday, when May futures for US oil collapsed to negative values for the first time in history. The coronavirus pandemic and the accompanying restrictions on travel contribute to the decrease in oil demand, while steps to reduce production fail to change the situation significantly. The existing storage facilities are almost full, and companies are forced to charter additional vessels for the temporary storage of their products.

OPEC held an urgent online conference concerning the situation in the oil market, but so far no important decisions have been made. It had been expected that the parties could begin reducing production immediately, and not from May 1, as suggested by the previously signed agreement.

Support and resistance

On the D1 chart Bollinger bands are reversing downwards. The price range is expanding; however, it fails to catch the surge of “bearish” sentiments at the moment. MACD is going down preserving a stable sell signal (located below the signal line). Stochastic has long been located near its lows, signaling a strong oversold instrument in the ultra-short term.

There are no signals for a possible upward correction, so it is reasonable to keep part of the available sales for some time.

Resistance levels: 20.00, 22.51, 25.00, 27.00.

Support levels: 15.49, 14.00, 12.00.
