  1. EUR/USD: Bullish above 1.0900 on ECB taper hints & softer USD The EUR/USD pair stalled its recent bullish momentum in the Asian session this Wednesday, and now enters a phase of consolidation, after the bulls ran into the key resistance of 1.0950 levels. The spot is trying to defend the bids near 1.0935 region at the moment, moving slightly away from five-month tops reached at 1.0951 in the US last session. The Euro extended its rebound versus the American dollar on Tuesday, after the US dollar took the back seat across the board amid risk-on trades and doubts whether the Trump administration will actually provide details on the tax reform plans on Wednesday. The spot also remains underpinned amid easing French election-related anxiety, as a Macron win appears to be full priced-in by markets, with most opinion polls showing about 60% support for Macron against 39% for the anti-EU candidate Le Pen. Also, expectations of some hawkish hints from the ECB, with markets widely anticipating the central bank to resort to taper talks, adds to the recent bullish tone seen behind the major. Nothing of relevance for the major in the day ahead, and hence, the US tax reform plans announcement will hog the limelight later in the NA session. EUR/USD Technical Levels Technical resistances for the pair are aligned at 1.0950/51 (psychological levels/ 5-month tops), 1.0968/71 (classic R1/ Fib R2) and finally 1.1000 (key resistance). On the flip side, the spot finds next support at 1.0909/00 (daily pivot), a break below that level could open the door to 1.0866/67 (5-DMA/ classic S1) and 1.0775 (10-DMA). Find More Analysis @
  2. USD/JPY Forecast April 25, 2017 The Dollar Index (DXY) gapped lower overnight as the outcome of the French election underpinned the euro, which makes up a big portion of the index. Despite the DXY’s weakness, the USD/JPY gapped higher as the news also undermined perceived safe haven assets such as gold and yen. But the gains for the USD/JPY were short-lived and the daily chart of the USD/JPY is currently displaying a bearish price pattern, which suggests that the gap may well be ‘filled’ completely in due course and there may even be a possibility for a deeper pullback. As can be seen from the chart, the USD/JPY is in the process of potentially forming an inverted hammer candlestick formation after the gap up. This price pattern is typically bearish as it highlights a lack of willingness from the buyers to hold onto their positions. Thus, we may see some weakness follow-through in the upcoming Asian session. Read More:

This is an area that has a certain amount of psychological significance, so obviously, a bit of a bounce could be coming. On top of that, we have a nice, strong, uptrend during the day. The market looks as if we are going to try to reach towards the $18.50 level, and then the $19 level after that.

It is not until we make a fresh, new low that I would even consider selling… Read More WTI Crude Oil Crude oil prices were hammered on Wednesday, with a sharp drop that followed the Department of Energy’s report on inventories.

  5. How are Bollinger Bands used in forex trading? Bollinger Bands are one of the most popular technical indicators for traders in any financial market, whether investors are trading stocks, bonds or foreign exchange (FX). Many traders use Bollinger Bands to determine overbought and oversold levels, selling when a price touches the upper Bollinger Band and buying when it hits the lower Bollinger Band. In range-bound markets, this technique works well, as prices travel between the two bands like balls bouncing off the walls of a racquetball court. However, Bollinger Bands don’t always give accurate buy and sell signals. This is where the more specific Bollinger Band “bands” come in. Let’s take a look. As John Bollinger was first to acknowledge: “tags of the bands are just that – tags, not signals. A tag of the upper Bollinger Band is not in and of itself a sell signal. A tag of the lower Bollinger Band is not in and of itself a buy signal.” Price often can and does “walk the band.” In those markets, traders who continuously try to “sell the top” or “buy the bottom” are faced with an excruciating series of stop-outs or worse, an ever-mounting floating loss as price moves further and further away from the original entry. Perhaps a more useful way to trade with Bollinger Bands is to use them to gauge trends. To understand why Bollinger Bands may be a good tool for this task we first need to ask – what is a trend?

  14. Gold Fundamental Forecast For The Week of April 3, 2017 Gold futures posted a two-sided trade last week before closing only slightly lower. Investors had a lot on their plates last week, dealing with Trump administration issues, the U.S. Dollar, interest rates, Brexit and French presidential elections. June Comex Gold futures closed the week at $1251.20, down $0.50 or -0.04%. Comex gold futures started the week more than 1 percent higher after President Trump’s failure to put through a healthcare reform package the previous Friday raised questions over his ability to deliver promised tax cuts and spending plans. This news drove the U.S. Dollar into a four-month low, making dollar-denominated gold a more attractive investment. Gold prices retreated the rest of the week after the dollar strengthened due to hawkish commentary from several Fed officials. Read More on
  15. GBP/USD analysis: tough EU position on Brexit weighs on Pound GBP/USD Current price: 1.2425 The UK formally begun the Brexit process through a letter that PM May delivered to the EU, resulting in some wild swings in Pound crosses and with the GBP/USD settling at 1.2425. The two parts are beginning now a two-year process that EU President Donald Tusk expects to start with “key arrangements for an orderly withdrawal.” UK PM May, on the contrary, wants to focus on a comprehensive free-trade deal, something that the EU is not willing to put on the table, at least for now.
