EUR/USD: European currency remains under pressure 29.09.2021

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

During the Asian session, the EUR/USD pair shows ambiguous dynamics, consolidating at 1.1700.

USD grows due to the "hawkish" rhetoric of the US Federal Reserve officials. Investors hope that the regulator may announce the start of curtailing the quantitative easing (QE) program as early as November 3. Labor market indicators are fairly stable, but inflationary pressures continue to grow. These factors can be a catalyst for a positive decision to start reducing incentives.

In turn, the results of the speech of the head of the European Central Bank (ECB), Christine Lagarde, had moderate pressure on the euro on Tuesday. Among other things, she noted that inflation in the EU shows no signs of widespread growth. The market perceived this statement as the agency's unwillingness to rush to curtail the existing measures to support the economy.

Support and resistance

On the daily chart, Bollinger Bands steadily decline. The price range narrows, reflecting the emergence of ambiguous trading dynamics in the short term. MACD also rushed downwards, maintaining a poor sell signal (the histogram is below the signal line). Stochastic, which reversed downwards at the beginning of the week, rapidly approaches its lows, indicating that EUR may become oversold in the ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 1.1700, 1.1754, 1.1800, 1.1850.
Support levels: 1.1650, 1.1600, 1.1546, 1.1500.

EUR/USD: EUR is preparing to end the week with a decline 01.10.2021

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 demonstrates flat trading dynamics against USD during the Asian session, consolidating near new local lows since July 23, 2020, updated the day before. The instrument is trading near 1.1575, trying to go into corrective growth after a whole week of failures. One of the factors that would contribute to the recovery of EUR may be statistics from the eurozone on inflation. Analysts expect the September consumer price data to show moderate growth from 3% to 3.3%, raising hopes for possible monetary tightening by the European Central Bank (ECB) in the foreseeable future.

The data released yesterday in Germany turned out to be ambiguous. The Unemployment Rate in the country remained at 5.5% in September, while the Unemployment Change fell by 30K (in August, the decline was 53K). At the same time, the Consumer Price Index showed zero dynamics in September, while the annualized Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices accelerated from +3.4% to +4.1% YoY.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands on the daily chart are showing a steady decline. The price range is expanding, but fails to keep pace with the development of the “bearish” trend at the moment. The MACD indicator is going down, maintaining a strong sell signal (the histogram is below the signal line). Stochastic, having reached its lows, reversed into a horizontal plane, indicating the risks of EUR being oversold in the ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 1.1600, 1.1650, 1.1700, 1.1754.
Support levels: 1.1546, 1.1500, 1.1460, 1.1400.

Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the rebound from 1.1546 as from support, followed by a breakout of 1.1600. Take-profit – 1.1700. Stop-loss – 1.1546. Implementation time: 2-3 days.

A confident breakdown of 1.1546 may become a signal for new sales with the target at 1.1460. Stop-loss – 1.1600.

USD/JPY: statistics from Japan could not support quotes 04.10.2021

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 corrective gains against JPY in Asian trading, again trying to consolidate above the psychological level of 111.00.

USD retreated from record highs since February 2020 last week after a strong rally fueled by the growing confidence of traders that the US Fed will resort to reducing the quantitative easing program before the end of this year. In addition, investors avoided unnecessary risks associated with the Japanese prime minister's election, which was won by the leader of the Liberal Democratic Party, Fumio Kishida, who now has to determine the composition of the government.

Last Friday's macroeconomic statistics from Japan was moderately optimistic. Tankan Large Manufacturing index increased from 14 to 18 points in Q3 2021, while analysts expected it to decline to 13 points. Consumer Confidence Index in September strengthened from 36.7 to 37.8 points, which also turned out to be better than investors' forecasts at 37 points. The Unemployment Rate in August remained at 2.8%, contrary to forecasts of growth to 2.9%.

Support and resistance

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

Resistance levels: 111.10, 111.34, 111.70, 112.00.
Support levels: 110.87, 110.68, 110.29, 110.00.

USDJPY041021-33.png


USDJPY041021-333.png


Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the rebound from the support level of 110.87 with the subsequent breakout of 111.10. Take-profit – 111.70. Stop-loss – 110.87. Implementation time: 1-2 days.

The breakdown of 110.87 may serve as a signal to new sales with the target at 110.29. Stop-loss – 111.20.

EUR/USD: EUR returns to local lows 06.10.2021

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 the Asian session, returning to local lows and testing the level of 1.1600 for a breakdown.

Investors are again actively buying USD after an attempt at correction at the end of last week, when trading participants preferred to close a significant part of long positions in USD, fixing profits. USD, as before, is supported by expectations of the imminent start of tightening of monetary policy by the US Fed, while the European Central Bank (ECB) is still taking a wait-and-see attitude. The growth of fears about the prospects for further recovery of the world economy is also having an effect.

Macroeconomic statistics from Europe published yesterday turned out to be mixed. Markit Services PMI in the eurozone in September grew insignificantly from 56.3 to 56.4 points with a neutral forecast. The Composite PMI also recorded the minimum increase from 56.1 to 56.2 points over the same period.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate a stable decrease. The price range is almost unchanged, but it remains rather spacious for the current level of activity in the market. MACD returns towards declining preserving a buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic is showing more confident growth and has not yet responded to the resumption of the decline in the instrument over the past few days.

Resistance levels: 1.1600, 1.1650, 1.1700, 1.1754.
Support levels: 1.1546, 1.1500, 1.1460, 1.1422.

GBP/USD: GBP is testing 1.3600 again 08.10.2021

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 with multidirectional dynamics against USD today, holding near 1.3600, where the instrument was trying to consolidate at the beginning of the week.

Market activity remains low due to the fact that investors are reluctant to open new positions ahead of the weekend and the publication of the September US labor market report. Yesterday, the instrument managed to show moderate growth and won back most of the positions it lost on Wednesday. The surge in "bullish" sentiment is partly due to some improvement in the situation with the energy crisis in Europe. After the statements of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin about the increase in supplies through the territory of Ukraine, the gas price in Europe fell by half.

Another positive factor for GBP was the upbeat macroeconomic statistics from the UK. Halifax House Prices in September rose by 1.7% MoM after falling by 0.8% MoM in August. Analysts did not expect the indicator to change. Today, investors are focused on the quarterly report of the Bank of England, as well as the minutes of the regulator's meeting on the financial policy.

Support and resistance

On the D1 chart, Bollinger Bands are gradually reversing horizontally. The price range is narrowed from above, being spacious enough for the current activity in the market. MACD indicator grows, preserving a stable buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic, having reached its highs, reverses downwards, reflecting the risks of overbought GBP in the ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 1.3650, 1.3700, 1.3750, 1.3800.
Support levels: 1.3600, 1.3552, 1.3500, 1.3450.

GBPUSD081021-33.png


GBPUSD081021-333.png


Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 1.3650. Take-profit – 1.3750. Stop-loss – 1.3600. Implementation time: 2-3 days.
The return of a "bearish" trend with the breakdown of 1.3552 may become a signal for new sales with the target at 1.3450. Stop-loss – 1.3600.

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.

USD/JPY: US dollar reaches record highs 11.10.2021

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

Today during the Asian session, the USD/JPY pair grows steadily, renewing record highs since December 2018.

Investors are focused on the US labor market report for September, published last Friday. The ambiguous statistics did not greatly affect the dynamics of the asset, in which the dollar is still the clear leader. The data reflected positive wage growth and overall unemployment results but was disappointing by the slower growth of new jobs outside the agricultural sector (194K versus the expected 500K). Investors did not react to the negative dynamics, reasonably believing that it would not affect the plans of the US Federal Reserve to start tightening monetary policy soon.

On Friday, some support for the yen was provided by moderately optimistic macroeconomic statistics from Japan. Thus, the forecast for the development of events from Eco Watchers for September confidently rose from 43.7 to 56.6 points, which was noticeably better than market expectations of 45.8 points. The index of the current situation for the same period has strengthened from 34.7 to 42.1 points.

Support and resistance

Bollinger bands grow steadily on the daily chart. The price range actively narrows but not as fast as the “bullish” sentiments have developed in recent days. MACD grows, maintaining a strong buy signal (the histogram is above the signal line). Stochastic maintains a confident upward trend but is near its highs, indicating that USD may become overbought in the ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 113.00, 113.50, 114.00.
Support levels: 112.06, 111.19, 110.81, 110.43.

USDJPY111021-33.png


USDJPY111021-333.png


Trading tips

Long positions may be opened after the breakout of 113.00 with the target at 114.00. Stop loss – 112.50. Implementation period: 1–2 days.

Short positions may be opened after the rebound from 113.00 and the breakdown of 112.50 with the target at 111.50. Stop loss – 113.00.

Brent Crude Oil: multidirectional trading dynamics 13.10.2021

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

Prices for Brent Crude Oil are trading in different directions after renewing three-year highs earlier this week.

Quotes continue to demonstrate steady growth amid the arrival of alarming publications that indicate a slowdown in the recovery of world economies and an expansion of the crisis in the energy market. Investors fear that against the backdrop of record electricity and natural gas prices in Europe, some power plants will be forced to use petroleum products to generate electricity, which will only exacerbate the current shortage. At the same time, OPEC+ is still abandoning the idea of a sharp increase in the production of "black gold". The cartel decided to stick to its target values, fearing sharp fluctuations and hoping to maintain a balance of supply and demand in the market.

Today, in addition to US statistics on consumer inflation for September, the focus of traders' attention is on the report of the American Petroleum Institute (API), which will reflect energy reserves as of the week of October 8. It should be recalled that there was a slight increase by 0.951 million barrels.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart show stable growth. The price range is slightly narrowing, staying spacious enough for the current activity level in the market. MACD reversed towards declining, having formed a new sell signal (located below the signal line). Stochastic, having once again reached the level of 80, reversed horizontally and signaled a strong overbought instrument in the ultra-short term.

There's a possibility of a full-fledged downtrend in the nearest time.

Resistance levels: 83.50, 84.18, 85.00.
Support levels: 82.50, 81.76, 81.00, 80.00.

Brent-Crude-Oil-131021-33.png

Trading tips

To open short positions, one should wait for the confident breakdown of 82.50. Take-profit — 81.00 Stop loss – 83.50. Implementation period: 1-2 days.

A rebound from 82.50 as from support followed by a breakout of 83.50 may become a signal for new purchases with the target at 85.00. Stop loss – 82.50.

AUD/USD: weak statistics does not impede the growth of the pair 15.10.2021

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 has been showing mixed performance against USD during the Asian session, consolidating near 0.7420 and updating local highs from September 7. Some support for the instrument is still provided by the rather vulnerable positions of USD: investors are in no hurry to open new positions, waiting for action from the US Fed to raise the interest rate in the near future.

The growth of AUD yesterday was not impeded by weak statistics from Australia on the labor market, which indicated a drop in Employment Change by 138K in September after falling by 146.3K in August. At the same time, the Unemployment Rate rose from 4.5% to 4.6%, which, however, turned out to be better than negative forecasts of an increase to 4.8%.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart show active growth. The price range is expanding but it fails to conform to the surge of "bullish" activity at the moment. MACD indicator grows, preserving a stable buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic retains an upward direction but is located in close proximity to its highs, which indicates the overbought AUD in the ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 0.7440, 0.7500, 0.7550.
Support levels: 0.7408, 0.7374, 0.7328, 0.7287.

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 0.7440. Take-profit – 0.7500. Stop-loss – 0.7408. Implementation time: 1-2 days.

A rebound from 0.7440 as from resistance, followed by a breakdown of 0.7408 may become a signal for new sales with the target at 0.7328. Stop-loss – 0.7450.

NZD/USD: consolidation after last week's growth 18.10.2021

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 ambiguous trading performance against USD during this morning session, consolidating at 0.7070.

The trading instrument has already managed to update the local highs of September 16, responding to the publication of strong macroeconomic statistics from New Zealand. Business NZ PSI in September rose from 35.4 to 46.9 points, which was better than the market average forecasts. The Consumer Price Index for Q3 2021 added 2.2% QoQ, showing a significant breakthrough from the previous 1.3% QoQ, while analysts hoped it only to strengthen within 1.4% QoQ. On an annualized basis, price growth accelerated from +3.3% YoY to a record +4.9% YoY, outstripping the already bold forecasts of a 4.1% YoY increase.

Investors believe that such a strong surge in inflationary pressures in the country will force the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) to speed up decisions on changes in the country's monetary policy. However, it is worth recalling that the New Zealand regulator was one of the first to raise the key rate by 0.25% in early October.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart show stable growth. The price range is expanding but it fails to conform to the development of "bullish" sentiments at the moment. MACD is also growing, maintaining a strong buy signal, being located above the signal line. Stochastic, having approached its highs, is also trying to reverse into a descending plane, indicating the risks of overbought NZD in the ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 0.7100, 0.7150, 0.7200, 0.7250.
Support levels: 0.7040, 0.7000, 0.6950, 0.6900.

Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 0.7100. Take-profit – 0.7200. Stop-loss – 0.7040. Implementation time: 1-2 days.

A rebound from 0.7100 as from resistance followed by a breakdown of 0.7040 may become a signal for new sales with the target at 0.6950. Stop-loss – 0.7100.

USD/JPY: USD consolidates near 2017 highs 20.10.2021

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 modest gains against JPY, holding near new record highs from November 2017.

The instrument is testing 114.50 for a breakout; however, the "bullish" impetus for USD has noticeably weakened since the beginning of the week, responding to the appearance of not the most optimistic macroeconomic statistics from the US. Data came out on Monday, indicating a sharp decline in industrial production in September by 1.3% MoM, while analysts expected an increase of +0.2% MoM. Experts point out that the decline in industrial production is caused by problems with supply chains, as well as a noticeable increase in energy prices in Europe and Asia.

Meanwhile, JPY was supported by data from Japan on exports and imports. Export volumes rose 13% YoY in September after rising 26.2% YoY a month earlier, while analysts had projected +11% YoY. Imports for the same period grew by 38.6% YoY, slowing down from +44.7% YoY in August. The indicator again turned out to be better than market forecasts at 34.4% YoY.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart show stable growth. The price range expands, freeing a path to new record highs for the "bulls". MACD indicator is growing, while preserving a rather stable buy signal (located above the signal line).
