  1. GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: March 29, 2017 The GBP/USD had a very disastrous trading day yesterday as the currency pair crashed by over 200 pips following the USD’s recovery, as well as the nearing invocation of Article 50. A lot of market players have been saying that today will be a very interesting day for the GBP/USD pair as the Article 50 will be invoked later today, which will mark the start of the Brexit process and basically a point of no return for the British economy. The GBP/USD pair has seen a consistent buildup of shorts during the past week as the market awaits a very large drop today. However, the value of the GBP/USD pair is also consistently moving higher and increasing towards 1.2600 points. This is a potentially very risky combination and the effect of this combo manifested yesterday, wherein both the USD’s strength and Brexit-related concerns caused the currency pair to drop from its range highs of 1.2600 towards 1.2400 points, where the pair is currently trading. The USD recovered amid possibilities that the Trump admin might again try to pass the healthcare bill by seeking help from like-minded Democrats. Theresa May will also be signing the order for Article 50, and it will be interesting to see how the sterling pound will react to this most recent development in the UK economy. For today’s session, there are no major releases from both the US and the UK economy and this is why the market will be mostly focusing on the invocation of Article 50 and the subsequent reaction of the GBP/USD pair following the said invocation.
  2. EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: March 28, 2017 The EUR/USD pair crashed during the previous session as the pair corrected its current upmove which has been the pair’s trend for the past few weeks. The USD finally recovered across the board, resulting to sellers taking advantage of this occurrence and selling the EUR. The dollar strength has helped to propel the pair’s value towards 1.0800 points, therefore eradicating the pair’s previous gains which was made last Monday. Because of this, traders are now mulling over the fact that the EUR/USD pair could be in for more corrections as the sessions progresses. However, the market has no choice but to wait and see how the pair’s price action turns out in the next few days, particularly if whether the pair would continue its current trend of correction or if the pair backs down as it approaches its support barrier at 1.0800, where the currency pair is situated as of the moment. The USD remained weak last Friday up until Monday due to the repeated failed attempts of the Trump administration to pass the healthcare bill. However, the White House is now trying to make another attempt at passing the said bill after Republicans reached out to like-minded Democrats. In addition, the US economy continues to release a slew of strong economic data and this has caused the EUR/USD pair to fall further during the US trading session. For today’s session, there are no expected releases coming from both the EU and the US economy. However, the month-end flows are expected to come anytime soon as March comes to a close, and since the USD’s strength is expected to persist today, the EUR/USD pair would continue to remain under pressure with the 1.0800 range remaining the essential barrier for the currency pair.
  3. EUR/USD Technical Analysis: March 27, 2017 The positive figures of Manufacturing and Composite PMI from the countries, France, Europe and Germany offered some strength to the single European currency. Particularly, German index which attained the strongest level for almost six years. Meanwhile, the greenbacks obtained a weaker position after the treasury yields inch lower in which provided further support for euro. The EURUSD continued to stay in the hands of the bulls on Friday. The EUR reached its lower limit in the ascending channel over the night and jumped higher. The price also spiked from the mark 1.0760 towards 1.0800 amid EU morning sessions and sit still in the New York trades. The 4-hour chart determined that the pair resumed its development on top of the moving averages as the 100 and 50-EMA preserved a bullish pattern while 200-EMA came in neutral. Resistance entered 1.0800, support touched 1.0750 region. MACD indicator strengthened which showed a buy signal. RSI oscillator edged upwards. In case the level 1.0800 broke, the next level would possibly be at 1.0850.
  4. GBP/USD Technical Analysis: March 27, 2017 The recovery of the greenbacks coupled with the BBA Mortgage Approvals of UK place pressure towards the British currency on Friday. The Cable secured its bullish market position on Friday. The spot leaves the upper limit of the channel in the night and slowed down near its lower limit during the morning session of Europe. The GBPUSD kept steady amid the day maintaining its seat close to the 1.2500 region. The 4-hour timeframe illustrated the major stayed aloft moving averages, seeing the 100 and 50-EMAs to drive higher while 200-EMA turned neutral. Resistance touched 1.2500, support hit 1.2400. The MACD indicator grew less presenting weak position of the buyers. RSI oscillator sits next to the overbought grounds, confirming for a higher move. A move over the 1.2500 level would likely take an advance move towards 1.2600 mark.
  5. USD/CAD Technical Analysis: March 27, 2017 The Canadian currency was unable to sustain its upside momentum as it currently endures the continuous weakening following the weak prices of crude oil. The greenbacks rebounded 1.3330 and reversed towards 1.3375 in which the buying impetus seems short-lived. The price headed back in the mid-session of Asia and begin to retreat afterward. The pair continued to decline amid early European trades and attempted to cut through the 50-EMA, nevertheless, failed to do so which caused it to reenter under the moving averages. Furthermore, the 50-EMA remain to move lower, 100-EMA appeared neutral and the 200-EMA headed upwards. Resistance covered 1.3400, support is at 1.3330. The MACD histogram was spotted at the centerline. On one side, an entry in the positive territory will favor buyers’ strength and on the negative grounds will allow sellers seize the control within the market. RSI was confined in the neutral area. A break under 1.3330 mark would indicate further weakening towards support level 1.3260.
  6. AUD/USD Technical Analysis: March 23, 2017 The risk-off market sentiment alongside the softening of copper and other commodities affected the Australian dollar on Wednesday. On Wednesday, the AUDUSD was neutral following the sell-off occurred on Tuesday. The sellers found a hurdle around 0.7650 mark. The handle slowed down the seller’s movement and the price was rejected. The spot was confined near the region as its progresses in an aimless manner. The commodity-linked pair tested the 50 and 200-EMA while the 50-EMA crossed on top of the 100-EMA touching the 200-EMA as shown in the 4-hour chart. Also, the 50-EMA preserved a bullish pattern while the 100-EMA shifted downwards while the 200-EMA showed signs of being neutral. Resistance entered 0.7700, support is at 0.7650. The MACD declined which confirmed the weak position of the buyers. RSI oscillator en route downwards. A break to 0.7600 region will pass the attention to the level 0.7550.
  7. USD/CAD Fundamental Analysis: March 22, 2017 The price action of the USD/CAD pair during the previous session was mostly dictated by the Canadian retail sales data, which came out better than expected. However, one downside to this is that the positivity of the data was somewhat offset by the data last month, which was revised on a much lower level. This correction has then helped remove some of the pressure off of the currency pair and enabled it to move towards 1.3350 before finally settling at just under this particular range. The pair eventually dropped towards 1.3260 where it is currently situated. The pair was met with a lot of buying and this has helped the pair to slowly recover towards 1.3300 points, and the correction in the country’s retail sales data enabled the pair to go even higher. The Canadian dollar has also weakened as a reaction to the repeated failed attempts of oil prices to recover from its recent slump, causing the USD/CAD pair to recover towards 1.3350 points and even surpassed this particular barrier. For today’s session, there are no major news releases from the US economy aside from the oil inventory data, which is expected to affect the status of the CAD based on the currency’s previous price action. Expect the Canadian dollar to drop in value as a reaction to this particular data and consolidate within 1.3300-1.3400 points for the duration of today’s trading session.
  8. GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: March 22, 2017 The GBP/USD pair has been consistently making its way towards 1.2500 points and it looks like the pair’s bulls are more determined than ever to break through this particular range. As of the moment, the GBP/USD pair is now trading at just beneath 1.2500 points and is bracing itself once the currency pair pushes past 1.2500 points, where it is expected to be met with a lot of sells. The bulls must be able to weather these large-scale selloffs in order for the currency pair to go past this particular barrier. The UK economy released its inflation data yesterday with a reading of 2.3% going well beyond the initial market expectations. This, along with one of the BoE officials voting for a rate hike just goes to show that the Bank of England’s data and policy seem to be in sync, thereby causing the sterling pound to increase in value. However, now that the GBP/USD pair as well as the euro are both in a very critical situation, the market is waiting whether the currency bulls would be able to break through these respective regions. However, the positive bearing of the sterling pound does not mean that the currency does not run any risks. We still have the nearing invocation of Article 50 as well as Scotland’s recent demand for an independence referendum, although the market has chosen not to focus on these and instead focus on the weakness of the USD. There are no major news releases coming from both the US and UK economy for today and so the market will be focusing instead on the battle at the 1.2500 barrier, with the market focusing on whether the currency pair will be finally making it through this section or weaken eventually and resort to some more consolidation for the rest of the trading day.
  9. EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: March 22, 2017 The EUR/USD pair was able to move towards 1.0800 points, with the currency pair managing to stay at over 1.0800 for a brief period. However, since the pair has not yet managed to make a clean breakthrough at this very tough barrier since it only momentarily peeked over this level, the pair’s surge was eventually met with large selling and had no choice but to retreat at just under 1.0800 points. However, in spite of this particular occurrence, the EUR/USD pair is still trading on a somewhat stronger note, thanks to the pair’s bulls who continue to trade on a strong streak. The EUR/USD pair’s move at under 1.0800 now seems as just more of a correction as the pair’s price are still well-maintained within its range highs. This is why the currency pair might give another shot at surpassing the 1.0800 barrier for today, especially since the forthcoming French polls might have Macron as its next President after all. This is a sigh of relief especially for the EUR currency, since Le Pen, Macron’s opponent, is a widely-known critic of the euro currency. In addition, the pairs bulls are getting a lot of encouragement from the very bullish stance of the ECB, who recently stated that the strength of the euro can be mostly attributed to an improvement in the EU economy. The USD has also been struggling to make significant gains in spite of the recent rate hike and there is a very definite possibility that the pair could possibly move towards 1.1000 points once makes a clean break through 1.0850 points. There are no major news from both the EU and the US economy for today, and this is why the EUR/USD pair might again attempt to break through its barrier. Traders could opt to wait whether the currency pair is able to surpass 1.0850 during the course of the day.
  10. USD/CAD Fundamental Analysis: March 21, 2017 The USD/CAD pair merely continued its weak trading streak within a limited trading range as the currency pair awaits clues on its price action as dictated by its fundamental indicators. Previously, the USD/CAD pair had already dropped in value last week following the FOMC rate statement, which disappointed investors in general, and since then the currency pair has been unable to make any significant progress and if the pair does move forward, it will be more of a consolidation in order to recover its recent losses than any move towards a definite direction. The USD/CAD is currently trading at just over 1.3350 points, with the market expecting the currency pair to consolidate within the 1.3300-1.3400 region. The pair is expected to return to its wider trading range and could possibly reach 1.3000 points in the near future. The USD/CAD pair, along with other major currency pairs, are expected to consolidate within a much higher range in spite of their collectively high volatility levels. The Canadian economy has been consistently releasing a slew of positive economic data, and this is expected to be very good news for the Canadian dollar and could cause the USD/CAD pair to retreat to 1.3000 points. For today’s session, Canada will be releasing its core retail sales data, which will be closely monitored by market players as this will be an important gauge on the overall health of the Canadian economy. If the data meets market expectations, then the USD/CAD pair could retreat towards 1.3300 points and could be poised for more retractions depending on the strength of the said retail sales data.
  11. EUR/USD Technical Analysis: March 20, 2017 The Eurozone Trade Balance, particularly in Italy, presented negative results. While the greenbacks sentiment remained to be a major driver of the markets. The US dollar kept its stance near its lows on the back of slightly hawkish remarks of J. Yellen. The common European currency spiked amid the post session of New York last Thursday. The buyers lead the price higher and broke the level 1.0750. On one side, bulls successfully edged higher towards 1.0770 in the latter part of the day and decided to stop. The spot kept intact in a narrow range over the 1.0750 region. The neutral position was preserved amid morning session. The 4-hour chart presented the price to develop beyond the moving averages, as the 50-EMA showed an upward crossover to the 200-EMA. The 50 and 100-EMAs advanced upwards while 200-EMA is found neutral. Resistance is at 1.0800, support lies at 1.0750. The MACD histogram increased which suggested a buy signal. RSI have seen consolidated within the positive zone. It is expected that the outlook, in general, will remain to be bullish due to ascending trend en route 1.0800. Nevertheless, there still a possibility of reversal towards 1.0720-1.0700.
  12. GBP/USD Technical Analysis: March 20, 2017 The upside bias continued to exist until Friday. Buyers stalled its activity during the night. Moreover, the night correction was considered as a profit-taking action of buyers who failure to hold its place. Bulls became active in the morning trades pushing the major near 1.2400 region and slowed down further. In line with the presentation of the 4-hour chart, the price cross above the 100-EMA and confined under the 200-EMA. Meanwhile, the 200 and 100-EMAs remained to be in a bearish pattern, 50-EMA directed up as mentioned in the chart. Resistance highlighted 1.2400, support entered 1.2300. MACD indicator strengthened confirming for a buy signal. The RSI consolidated around the positive area. Should the GBP/USD pair accomplish to breakout from the 1.2400 mark, the next focus is 1.2500 resistance region. However, there is an outside chance for a move on top of 1.2400 due to an overbought condition. Due to this probable scenario, the Cable is expected to reverse at 1.2300.
  13. AUD/USD Technical Analysis: March 20, 2017 There is no expected economic release scheduled from the Australian dollar on Friday. Investors were in a wait-and-see mode for the RBA Meeting minutes scheduled on Tuesday. Moreover, the offered tone near the greenbacks provided strength for the Aussie. Buyers found a hurdle around 0.7700 but needed to leave off their gains.The major rebounded and stalled on top of 0.7660. A bout of renewed buying pressure came up during Friday’s Asian session. The AUD/USD were pulled back by the buyers towards 0.7700 removing its current losses. The 4-hour chart determines the price continuously develop above the moving averages as the 200 and 50-EMA directed higher while 100-EMA seems neutral. Resistance entered 0.7700 level, support holds 0.7650 mark. The histogram preserved in the same region favoring buyer’s strength. RSI indicator is situated close to the overvalued area which confirms another move lower. After making a gap on top of 0.7700, the next will be 0.7750. Failure to post its fresh gains could possibly occur some profit taking. The AUD would likely weaken reaching 0.7600-0.7620.
  14. GBP/USD Technical Analysis: March 17, 2017 The market mainly focused on the meeting of the Bank of England about its monetary policy decision. Investors anticipate that regulator will keep an unchanged rate and does not assume any other surprising events. The market became bearish yesterday. Investors believe that the sterling should be lifted on top of 1.2300. The major stayed near the barrier and moved downwards during the first part of the day. The Cable preserved an ask tone throughout the day. According to the 4-hour chart, the GBP/USD broke the 50-EMA and tested 100-EMA afterwards. At the same, the 100 and 200-EMAs drove lower while the 50-EMA came in neutral. Resistance is found at 1.2300 level, support is at 1.2200. The histogram made its entry to the positive territory. Upon maintaining this position the buyer’s strength will increase. The RSI consolidated alongside the overbought readings. Moving downwards near the 1.2200 level would the be the next possible scenario.
  15. EUR/USD Fundamental Analysis: March 15, 2017 The USD increased in value as the market anticipates the release of the FOMC rate announcement later today. As a result, the EUR/USD consistently weakened yesterday and has managed to break through 1.0650 points and is currently situated at just above 1.0600 points. A lot of analysts have been saying that the currency pair could possibly consolidate within the 1.0600-1.0700 barrier during the week of the FOMC statement and could possibly maintain its place within the region up until the end of this week. The expected rate hike this coming March is pretty much secured and what the market will be focusing now is the amount of hawkishness of this particular announcement, and this is where the uncertainty lies. The majority of market players have no idea on just how hawkish the statement should be in order to push the value of the dollar further. Nonetheless, the market expects that there would be some sort of clue on the Federal Reserve’s next move and if possible, hints on the next scheduled interest rate hike from the central bank. Of course, it would definitely be good news for the market if the statement outwardly gives out clues of the next rate hike, but then again the central bank is not known for such moves and could possibly state that the schedule of the subsequent rate hikes would depend on the status of various economic data in the future. The volatility of the EUR/USD pair could possibly be increased by the release of the CPI index data and the retail sales data. The currency pair could possibly drop to 1.0600 points and could even reach 1.0580 for a short period if the data comes out as positive.
