    Here’s the market outlook for the week:



    EURUSD

    Dominant bias: Neutral

    This pair is bearish in the short-term, and neutral in the long-term. Price has gradually come down since November 27, and it is now around the support line at 1.1750, and it may go lower to test other support lines at 1.1700 and 1.1650 this week. There would be some selling pressure on the market, which could hold throughout December. A meaningful rally would be somewhat difficult.


    USDCHF

    Dominant bias: Bearish

    Although USDCHF is bearish in the short-term (and neutral in the long-term), it is likely that price would go upwards, moving above the resistance levels at 0.9950 and 1.0000, and therefore erasing the short-term bearishness. This pair would be able to enjoy some form of bullishness as long as EURUSD is under selling pressure, and this is a situation that may hold out for most part of December.


    GBPUSD

    Dominant bias: Bearish

    The Cable is also slightly bearish in the short-term, but neutral in the long-term. A movement towards the accumulation territories at 1.3300 and 1.3250 would help strengthen the extant short-term bearishness; while a movement above the distribution territories at 1.3450 and 1.3500 would halt the bearishness. It is possible for the overall neutrality to end when the market assumes a protracted directional movement.


    USDJPY

    Dominant bias: Neutral

    The market went sideways on Monday and Tuesday, and then began to come down on Wednesday. If price had not closed above the demand level at 112.50, there would have been a “sell” signal in the short-term. The neutrality in the market is vivid, and will end once price goes above the supply level at 114.00; or it goes below the demand level at 111.50. This condition may not be fulfilled again this month, because the kind of volatility that would bring this about may not happen this month.


    EURJPY

    Dominant bias: Neutral

    EURJPY is currently a good example of a consolidating market. The consolidation has been in place since September 2017, and that is the how the situation would be until year 2017 is over. However, there are short-term signals that are brought about by temporary upswings and downswings in the market, which give excellent opportunities to buy dips and sell rallies as price oscillates along the way.


    GBPJPY

    Dominant bias: Bearish

    This cross is bearish in the short-term (but neutral in the long-term). Price went downwards by more than 200 pips, creating a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market. The bearish movement is expected to continue as price targets the demand zones at 149.50, 149.00 and 148.50, which would be reached this week or next. There could be rallies along the way, but they are not expected to bring about a bullish bias.


    This forecast is concluded with the quote below:
