Fundamental analysis


The American dollar has significantly strengthened its position against its main competitors - the dollar index basket (USDX) closed the trades with the maximum levels for the last 4 years. Against the empty macroeconomic calendar the EUR/USD decreased after the last week correction growth. The traders actively sold the euro, expending the differential returns on the 10 –year American and the German state bonds. It should be noted that the short euro positions were observed along the entire market.


As the old trading rule says «buy the rumor, sell the fact”. 55.3% of voters in the Scotland referendum opposed the independence and against this background we observed the GBP/USD long positions closing. Prior to the official results announcement the British currency voting quotes reached the level of 1.6523 at the moment, after which we observed a sharp pound rise and against this negative background the «cable» has lost 0.68%.


The Japan continues to disappoint the traders by a negative macroeconomic statistics. This time we got the index activity weak report in all economic sectors which showed a reduction of 0.2% in July. This indicator decline has been observed for 2 months in a row that points to the service and the manufacturing difficulties. Against this negative background the bullish rally for the USD/JPY continued and at the moment the prices reached the level of 109.45. The last time the dollar rose so high in September 2008.

24.09.2014


Fundamental analysis


The Forex market trading week started rather quietly. The consumer confidence weak release in the euro area, as well as the ECB governor Mario Draghi’s speech about the loose monetary policy that will be preserved for a "long time" activated the euro/dollar bears, but they were not able to pull them forwards.


The US negative macroeconomic data also played its role. The August sales in the secondary housing market showed a decrease of 1.8% and this is the third release of a weak construction sector. The housing market is traditionally sensitive to changes in the economy and these reports are the first alarm bell for the GDP final release for the 3rd quarter.


The pair GBP/USD was growing up against the EUR/GBP cross-rate reduction, as well as the negative sales release in the US secondary market. It should be noted that the quotations growth is restrained.


Global stock markets overstock coupled with the US housing market weak statistics putting downward pressure on the pair USD/JPY. However, attempts to develop a corrective bearish movement were unsuccessful. The USD/JPY uptrend is still stable and very few factors can break it at the moment.

Fundamental analysis


The EUR/USD decreased at the trading day end. Before this the pair has completed a minimum quotation increase by 0.1%. Markit Economics has published a large number of France and the Germany releases. The France PMI as well as in the euro area also were released. It should be noted that in general, the data came out worse than the forecasted medians which confirms the economic growth slowdown in the European countries. Nevertheless, the traders ignored the negative statistics.


The GBP/USD has also demonstrated a lateral trend. The EUR/GBP cross-rate quotations decrease and the US moderately negative statistics on the business activity index in the manufacturing sector supported the pound demand.


The yen counterattack will not be long after the USD/JPY drop to 108.50/108.20, it is necessary to open long positions. The Japanese stock market closed the main session in the "red zone" that led to the dollar/yen sales. But then the bulls began to open "longs", based on the strong uptrend continuation. The US industrial sector PMI release was a little worse than the forecast, but the investors ignored these statistics.

Fundamental analysis


After a short falling the US dollar again is raised to new highs - the dollar index basket (USDX) has completed the trading day at 85.02. The main pair EUR/USD has fallen to the 28th figure after the extremely positive release publication for the US new home sales. In August the sales increased by a record 18%, that give us a good ground for a pessimism about the US economy prospects. The IFO business climate index in Germany showed the lowest level from February 2013 till September in Germany and against this negative background the bears began to reduce actively the euro/dollar.


The GBP/USD was trying to consolidate above the 64th figure against the reducing cross-rate EUR/GBP, but the US positive macroeconomic data about the housing market do not give the bulls hope for success. The decline in the oil quotations only fueled the dollar demand and against this negative background the pound made a sharp drop back down.


The USD/JPY was under pressure amid the Tokyo Stock Exchange low quotes in the early hours of the Asian trading session. However, the European traders’ arrival supported the dollar demand after the United States new home sales strong report publication, the dollar sharply raised up. It should be noted that the bullish sentiment was observed not only towards the American dollar, but also in the stock markets.

29.09.2014


Fundamental analysis


The US dollar continued to strengthen against its major competitors - the dollar index basket (USDX) closed the trading day at around 85.20. The EUR/USD set a new local minimum for the last 22 months - traders continue to sell off the euro against the ECB "cheap money" policy. The 10-year German state bonds profit abilities differential dropped back below 1% which confirms the deflationary sentiment presence in the Old World.


The pound fell at the end of the last week. It is important to note that before this the GBP/USD has consolidated near the 63rd figure. Mark Carney’s comments were able to support the moderate pound demand– the Bank of England president stated that the time for the rate increase was getting closer and was delayed for a long time after the first increase that was critical to the UK real estate market.


The USD/JPY has continued to develop a bullish trend despite the US negative macroeconomic data. The August orders for consumer durables decreased by 18.2%, indicating to a quite restrained private consumption in the third quarter. It should be noted that the US macroeconomic releases showed a mixed trend the last week and now we cannot speak about the strong economic growth, similar to that we saw in the second quarter this year.

Fundamental analysis


The main dollar competitors once again came under attack - the dollar index basket (USDX) finished the trading day at around 85.63. The euro is consolidating. Before this the EUR/USD fell against the euro zone negative macroeconomic data and the US positive release in terms of the GDP growth. The Germany consumer confidence index showed the minimum value over the past 7 months in September, which is a negative factor for the inflation. The final data about the US economic growth for the 2nd quarter were revised upwards to the level of 4.6%, the last time we saw such a strong growth in the fourth quarter of 2011.


The GBP/USD consolidated most of the day near the 63 figure, but in the midst of the American trading session also came under a sales wave against the dollar upward trend line. The Great Britain did not please the traders with the interesting reports this day and all market participants' attention was focused on the United States data. There was published moderately positive GDP figures.


The CPI showed a 0.1% decrease the last month in Japan that cheered the bulls to open the long positions in the USD/JPY. The corporate bonds demand had the same positive impact on the bullish sentiment for the USD/JPY in Tokyo stock exchange.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis


01.10.2014


Fundamental analysis


The first part of the week has passed quietly enough for the single European currency that has been decreasing. Spain and Germany have published the September inflation preliminary data. Both figures were better than the forecasted medians, but still there was no CPI increase. The euro exchange rate at the moment reached 1.2715, but the bulls did not find strength for something else. The US private expenses consumption release can be slightly better than the traders expect, which will support the demand for the dollar. The PCE index showed an increase by 0.1% in August which is a positive factor for the economic growth.


The GBP/USD has showed a moderate increase by 0.15%. Nevertheless the pair fell down. There were no fundamental prerequisites for the British currency consolidation - M4 monetary aggregate still points out to the inflationary pressure fall which is a negative factor for the monetary policy tightening. The traders took profits on short positions, as a result we observed the moderate pound growth before the pair decreased.


The sales at the biggest world stock exchange market have frozen the USD/JPY bulls’ enthusiasm. However, we have not observed the American currency strong sales that confirms a stable upward trend. The market participants remain positive about the dollar/yen and increase the "longs" on corrective dips. The US real personal consumption expenditure allowed the USD/JPY to close the trading day in the "green zone".

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

02.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

The US dollar ended the trading day with a steady growth against its main competitors - the dollar index basket (USDX) finished the day at 85.95. The EUR/USD was under attack after the euro area inflation release was published. According to the preliminary data, CPI decreased by 0.3% at an annual rate which again points out to the economic deflation. Against this negative background we observed the euro sales, and at the moment the price reached the level of 1.2600 and then traders started partly to take profits closing their "shorts". As the result we saw a technical rebound that was followed by the consolidation.

The GBP/USD will be under pressure during the day amid the UK weak macroeconomic statistics. The negative payments balance has increased sharply in the second quarter confirming the existing problems in the UK economy. Against this background, the bears were able to push the price to 1.6180, but when American market participants appeared we observed a moderate demand for the pound against the US negative consumer confidence macroeconomic statistics. In September the Conference Board index showed a decline to the level of 86 p. It is worth noting that this figure is still above the 12-month average which is positive for the US dollar bulls.

Despite the American and the Japanese stock market correction the USD/JPY is still in demand among traders. It is worth noting that we had strong sales of "black gold" and this factor has traditionally been a positive for the dollar. The Japan macroeconomic statistics continues to disappoint investors. The August industrial production fell by 1.5%, which confirms the export problems. Household expenditures show a significant reduction five months in a row which also negatively affects the economy. In this regard, the traders have no choice if only to buy the US dollar.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

03.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

We can observe a mixed trend in the foreign exchange market. The pair EUR/USD consolidated during the day near the 26th figure against the US mixed news. The ADP population employment index came out better than the forecast at 213 000. This level was higher than the annual average which can count on the positive Non-Farm release. However, the ISM manufacturing sector showed a reduction to 56.6% in September which once again confirms the economic growth slowdown in the 3rd quarter.

The PMI manufacturing sector released by Markit Economics has been showing a decline for three months in a row. This year third quarter turned out to be the weakest for the manufacturing economic sector that finds its reflection in the final GDP release. The strong sales also had a negative impact on the pound at the London stock market.

The USD/JPY was able to overcome the 110th figure, but the bulls could not hold on it. The dollar with the yen sharply decreased. Many traders hurried up to take profits, besides we have seen the sales continuation in the world's leading stock exchange. The investors escape from risky assets has traditionally supported the demand for the "safe-haven" yen.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

06.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

The euro finished the last week with the quotation decrease. The US dollar stopped its decline against its major competitors - the dollar index basket (USDX) has finished the trading week above 85.65. The ECB's monetary policy meeting release publication was the main event for the pair EUR/USD. At the press conference, Mario Draghi said that the monetary control would begin the ABS assets purchases process worth up to $1 trillion euro in mid October. The short-term inflation forecasts were again lowered in the euro area which is a negative factor for the European economy. It is worth noting that we have not seen the EUR/USD strong sales. Traders took profits on short positions after the ECB president press conference.

The pair GBP/USD has been traded for three days in a row in the "red zone". The positive data about the UK construction purchasing managers index for September has not helped the British currency- the index was better than the forecasted medians at the level of 64.2. The pound sterling was stabbed back after receiving the10-year bond yield from the bond market that fell to one-year low amid the Brent oil quotations fall. The US and UK bond yields differential has expanded once again.

The dollar/yen has shown an upward movement at the end of the trading week.The pair USD/JPY remains under pressure amid sales on the world markets shares. Investors continue to escape from risky assets that increase the demand for the "safe haven" yen. Even the US positive macroeconomic statistics has not helped the bulls- the initial jobless claims fell to the level of 287 thousand last week which is a positive factor for the labor market data.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

07.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

The majors began to win back their position against the dollar on Monday. The US dollar has strengthened its position against its main competitors - the dollar index basket (USDX) finished the last week at 86.65, the highest level since July 2010. The main event was the US labor market release.

It should be noted that the key parameters are significantly better than the forecasted medians - the unemployment rate fell to 5.9% in September, the non-farm sector employment increased by 248 thousand. It should also be noted the trade balance report has come out better than the traders expectations. The positive macroeconomic data points out to the strong economic growth in the third quarter (3%) which has increased the US dollar and the American corporate bonds demand. Those who have written the US off from the accounts came out at the losing end.

The week news is inferior to the last session, concerning the significant economic publications. The particular attention will be paid to the latest Federal Reserve meeting minutes release. Investors will try to draw a conclusion about the US rate increase deadline. It is possible that the news weakness will possibly decrease the market activity and there will be observed a range trading tendency. However, we believe that the Fed is inclined to tighten the monetary policy, leaving priorities to the US dollar, especially after the last employment report about the rate hike within a very short timeframe not later than mid-2015.

Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

The European currency rose at the beginning of the week. Earlier the euro was being sold off against the dollar amid the ECB members dovish statements, their confidence about the Feds and the European regulators differently directed monetary policies as well as the Eurozone weak economic statistics that points out to the downward trend continuation.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

08.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

We will receive the Germany industrial production data for August with the European trading session opening. The industrial orders release pointed to the reducing strong production rate and in this connection we should expect the data release to be slightly worse than the forecasted medians. The US and German 10-year bond yield moderately declined on Monday, giving the bulls a little breath of fresh air. However, we do not expect the strong euro/dollar growth the eurozone inflation expectations remain still low.

Today traders pay a special attention to the UK industrial production report. Both the industrial orders reduction and the 3-months PMI index decline point to the data release that is worse than the consensus forecast.

The pair dollar/yen corrected near the 109th figure amid the empty macroeconomic calendar and the current levels are good for the long positions opening for two reasons. Firstly the US dollar bullish trend is still in force amid the positive macroeconomic statistics. Secondly we expect the upward trend reinforcement on the US and Japan stock markets.

The US dollar has weakened slightly against its main competitors - the dollar index basket (USDX) finished the trading day at around 85.68. The EUR/USD remained under pressure amid the negative German industrial production release. In August, the index fell to a record 4% which indicates the possible European largest economy recession.

The Great Britain also issued the industrial production release for August. The data came out worse than the forecasted medians, but were not as bad as the German ones. At first traders rushed to sell the pound sterling against the negative macroeconomic release, but then the bullish market sentiment was observed.

The pair USD/JPY has finished in the "red zone" for the second day in a row. According to the Bank of Japan meeting release there appeared the negative economic impact after the sales tax introduction. Also the monetary regulator pointed out to the industrial production weakness. Despite the negative comments the Japanese yen was able to strengthen its position against the American dollar. The main dollar/yen sale reason appeared to be the American stock markets that fell from 1 to 1.5%.

10.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

The last Federal Reserve meeting report knocked down the US dollar - the dollar index basket (USDX) came to the mark 85.35. Then the dollar won back some positions.

The FOMC currently believe to keep the federal fund rates low "for an extended period of time." It was told that the dollar revaluation against its major competitors could prevent inflationary pressure and also lead to the negative payment balance increase. It was emphasized that the Eurozone weak economy has the possibility to continue the dollar quotations growth in the foreign exchange market.

The euro remained under pressure after the data which reported a sharp August industrial orders decline in Germany, fearing that the euro zone's largest economy deviates towards the recession.

The disappointing data reinforced our views that the European Central Bank would resort to the new stimulating measures to promote economic growth.

According to the two-day policy meeting results, the Bank of Japan kept its monetary policy unchanged, but it acknowledged that the reducing consumption after the April sales tax increase leads to an economic weakness.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

13.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

There is an uncertainty sentiment in the currency market - the US dollar has significantly strengthened against its major competitors in the recent months and the technical correction is long overdue, however, the dollar bears first attempt was unsuccessful. The Fed gave hope to the bears last week but the black gold quotations decrease supported the American currency later. It should be noted that the oil sales have a negative impact on the whole world's leading economy, as inflation is now below the level of 2% and the oil bearish trend will have a significant pressure on the CPI.

Against this backdrop, investors think which currency will be the most affected due to the low inflation expectations. In this regard, we have observed the US dollar demand - traders left the commodity market and transferred their assets in cash, namely in the US dollar.

The initial jobless claims release which came out better than the forecasted medians has also raised the dollar bulls sentiment. Four-week initial jobless claims average set a fresh yearly low at around 287.75K which indicates the American labor market positive trends.

Yen (JPY)

General overview

The trades were in the context of the dollar rise for the most major currency pairs. However, this correlation was ignored by the Japanese yen which gradually leads to the position recovery after the long decrease.

The stock markets falling optimism and the neutral situation in the US national debts market resulted in the investors return to the Japanese yen.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

15.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

The first half of the week passed quietly enough amid the lack of important macroeconomic statistics. The EUR/USD consolidated near the resistance level of 1.2698. Traders do not hurry to open new positions and in this regard the trade passed quietly enough.

The speech of Feds deputy head S. Fischer caused some pressure on the US dollar who stated that the slower foreign economic growth can make the Fed treat the soft policy closure less aggressively. The US bond treasury collapse had a negative impact on the dollar.

We got the German wholesale prices which pointed out to the continued year decrease -0.9% y / y vs. -0.6% y / y and the ECB board member P. Pratt touched once again in his speech the subject upon the eurozone deflation risks.

The pair GBP/USD has reached the level of 1.6125, after that the bears assumed a counter offensive. The UK bond yields set a fresh yearly low on Monday, indicating the weaker inflationary pressure. In this regard, the British pound will not be in demand among traders as the Bank of England can take a pause in tightening the monetary policy in early 2015.

Despite the fact that the long-term trend is still in force the USD / JPY traders do not rush to open long positions. The external background is clearly not on the bulls side the first reason is the US dollar decrease against its major counterparts and the second is the downward trend in the American market.

7JxA71fj10.jpg

Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

The US dollar suffered a loss for the first time in three trading sessions after the Fed members statement about the possible interest rates rise delay due to the world economic slowdown.

The eurozone expects negative news. The August industrial production is expected to be-1.5% against its growth by 1.0% in July, the ZEW economic sentiment indicator for October in Germany is expected to decline from 6.9 to 0.2 points, the ZEW economic sentiment in eurozone is expected to decline from 14.2 to 7.1.

The euro corrective growth against the US dollar is not supported by the trade volumes.

The price is finding the first support at 1.2600, the next one is at 1.2500. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2670, the next one is at 1.2730.

There is a non-confirmed and a weak buy signal. The price is above the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows an upward movement and form a Dead cross. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

Trading recommendations

As a result of the resistance level of 1.2670 breakthrough upwards, the next target for buyers will be the mark of 1.2730.

9lv0e029k3.jpg

Pound (GBP)

We do not expect positive news for the British pound- the BRC retail sales for September showed a 2.1% year-on-year decline against the 1.3% growth in August.

The UK consumer price index (CPI) for September is expected to decline from 1.5% to 1.4% y/y.

The base CPI (excluding motor vehicles) is expected to be 1.8% y/y vs. 1.9% y/y in August.

The UK retail price index (RPI) is expected to be 2.3% y / y vs. 2.4% y / y.

The producer prices are expected to decline at the entrance by 0.4% m/m, in the output by 0.1% m/m

The pair GBP/USD is corrected to the downward trend line of 1.6200. The trading volumes do not support the formed correction.

There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is below the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a downward movement and form a Dead Cross. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

The MACD histogram is in a negative territory. The price is decreasing.

Trading recommendations

The potential rebound target will be the month low- the resistance level of 1.6030.

Hao6H4jMeQ.jpg

Yen (JPY)

After a ten year reduction the Japanese is going to rebound amid the US stock indices decline by 1.3% -1.6%, and the Nikkei225reduction by 1.45% and the producer price index fall for September by 3.5% y/y vs. 3 9% y / y in August.

We expect the neutral retail sales data and strong industrial production ones and construction indicators on Thursday and on Friday. After these data the yen can rise up.

The pair USD/JPY is consolidating below the strong resistance level of 107.35

The short-term price consolidation below 107.35 is more likely to lead to a rebound and to the further price decline.

The price is finding the first support at 106.70, the next one is at 106.30. The price is finding the first resistance at 107.10, the next one is at 107.60.

There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a downward movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

Trading recommendations

The potential target for the price decline is the support level of 106.30.

HwesI260a9.jpg

Franc (CHF)

The Swiss franc continues to consolidate near the lows against the dollar. The Switzerland Central bank head Jordan said that the regulator would protect the exchange rate lower threshold through intervention if it was necessary.

We observe the dollar weaknesses against the major currencies, against the yen in particular as investors argue once again about the possible earlier interest rate increase by the US central bank.

From a technical point of view, the USD/CHF is trading above 0.9500. It is presented below support at the level of 0.9470. The resistance is at the level of 0.9600 and 0.9680 and is upwards at the level of 0.9830.

There is a non-confirmed and a weak sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a horizontal movement and the Kijun-sen show a downward movement and form a Dead cross. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

16.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

The US dollar was able to regain some lost ground - the dollar index basket (USDX) finished the trading day at around 85.84. The pair EUR/USD is not still able to determine the direction. If it was not for the Fed's statement, the dollar revaluation would be able to prevent inflationary pressure - the bears were able to set the fresh lows. The bulls were able to overclock quotes to the mark of 1.2767 in the Asian session amid the US and German 10-year bonds spread decline. But after the weak release by the ZEW Institute, we observed the price decrease. The oil market sales only intensify deflationary expectations and, in this regard, we saw a fresh one-year low on the German 10-year bond yields.

The pair GBP/USD fell strongly - the trade ended by 1.13% quotes decline. CPI showed a 1.2% year- on- year decline in September which indicates the lower inflationary pressure. Against this background, the UK monetary regulator will not hurry to raise interest rates that is a negative factor for the currency. Traders were trying to get rid of the British pound the whole day that led to the massive pound sell-offs along the entire market.

Stock markets showed a positive trend the whole day which supported the moderate US dollar demand amid the lack of interesting US and Japan macroeconomic releases.

zLpr5EwR6X.jpg

Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

The Eurozone economic news was clearly not on the European currency side. In fact all the published indicators caused the sales resumption and the euro ended the session with its decline against the US dollar.

The euro corrective growth against the dollar was stopped by the lower bound channel breakthrough of 1.2790. The breakthrough of such a strong resistance was amid the low volumes and the further EUR volatile news.

The price is finding the first support at 1.2730, the next one is at 1.2670. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2790, the next one is at 1.2850.

There is a confirmed and a weak buy signal. The price is above the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

The MACD histogram is in a positive territory. The price is growing.

Trading recommendations

The current upward movement is considered as a correction so far. The correction can reach 1.2850 where we expect a return to the fall.

Like the euro the British pound also was under the strong pressure against the US dollar. The pound sales were caused by the UK economic data, noting that the UK inflation became slower in September than it was expected. We expect the UK employment data and the salary dynamics information.

Negative fundamental data within the GBP (Consumer Price Index) led to a confident bearish trend continuation. At yesterday's trading session traders were able to get out of the rising channel and broke through the support level of 1.5950 downwards.

There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is below the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a downward movement and form a Dead Cross. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

The MACD histogram is in a negative territory. The price is decreasing.

Trading recommendations

The decrease shall be continued. The targets are 1.5860 and 1.5770.

Yen (JPY)

The events at the yesterday's dollar/yen trading session showed non-permanent market views. Investors are more reluctant to take risks, concerning the global economic growth that has put pressure on the US dollar and the levels to which the US dollar fell were good for its sale. As a result, the US dollar traded against the yen in the narrow corridor and it had a very small plus at the end of the day.

The price is finding the first support at 105.70, the next one is at 105.20. The price is finding the first resistance at 106.30, the next one is at 106.70.

There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a downward movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is consolidating.

Trading recommendations

The potential target for the price decline is the support level of 105.20.

Franc (CHF)

The US and eurozone weak macroeconomic data put pressure on the pound and the euro on Tuesday as investors continue to consider that the US economic prospects are better than the Europe ones.

Against this background the US dollar has only won as it was able to recover after the Monday fall against the Swiss franc.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9430, the next one is at 0.9370. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9500, the next one is at 0.9560.

There is a non-confirmed and a weak sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a horizontal movement and the Kijun-sen show a downward movement and form a Dead cross. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is consolidating.

Trading recommendations

We recommend the short positions with the first target at 0.9430. If the first target is overcome, the next target will be 0.9370.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

17.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

Yesterday we observed a high volatility in all financial markets due to the credit markets turbulence. All major global bond yields have sharply fallen, indicating the possible deflationary collapse in the short term. The US 10-year bond treasuries fell to the level of 1.86% that caused long dollar positions rapid elimination. Despite the fact that the German bonds also updated the yearly lows yields the pair EUR / USD has sharply increased fearing that the Fed will not close the QE-3 this month.

The pair GBP / USD is still under pressure, despite the fact that it has completed the third trading day in positive area. The August unemployment rate reduced to the level of 6% in the UK and the moderate salary increase is a positive signal for the economy. If it was not for the lower inflationary pressure, traders would have an excellent opportunity to start a "bull rally." However, the low CPI is a strong deterrent and against this background the pound set a fresh low during the day for the past 11 months. The US and UK 10-year bond yields strongly expanded on Wednesday that was a negative factor for the British currency.

The pair USD/JPY came under a powerful sales wave on Wednesday amid the drastic US 10-year bond yields reduction. The US inflation expectations have weakened with the sales on the stock markets that point out to the possible deflationary spiral in the world's largest economy. In the light of this traders bought the yen.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

20.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

We observed different directed trends within the major currency pairs last week. Bulls cannot still develop the full correction movement on the EUR/USD - as soon as the quotations are above 28th figures, sellers come to the market and the US dollar recovers its lost ground. The US initial jobless claims release over the past week came out much better than traders had expected that also held bulls back. Against this background, the trading day on Friday ended with the quotations decrease by 0.2%.

The pair GBP/USD was under pressure at the European trading session amid the negative investors sentiment towards the UK lower inflationary pressure. At the moment the prices reached the level of 1.5940, and then we observed the pound position recovery. The US and UK bond yields significantly decreased in the second half of the day on Friday that led to the short positions pound closing. Against this backdrop, the trading day ended in the "green field" within the pair pound/dollar on Friday.

Traders chose the upward direction for the USD/JPY on Friday. The high volatility is still observed on the credit markets and the stock market volatility puts traders to a standstill. Against this backdrop, the dollar/yen was growing towards the 107th figure during the day.

Pound (GBP)

General overview

The British pound continued its growth against the US dollar that started on the Wednesday trading and then started a consolidation. The UK economic news was not published and the increased pound interest could be based on the fact that the Bank of England tightening policy is opposed to the ECB and the Bank of Japan policies that can be our guidance in an uncertainty period.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

21.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

The US dollar was able to strengthen significantly its position against its main competitors the last week - the dollar index basket (USDX) closed at around 85.20. The pair EUR/USD was moderately decreasing during the day amid the US positive macroeconomic data. The consumer sentiment index by the University of Michigan established multi-year highs in October that dispels our skepticism about the US economic prospects. Traders tried to start a technical correction for the euro/dollar, but so far their efforts were unsuccessful. As soon as we see an increase above the 28th figure bears immediately come to the market and the euro once again returns to the range of 1.2605 -1.2805.

The pair GBP/USD enjoyed moderate demand during the day amid the short positions closing. The US and UK 10-year bond yields declined significantly to a level of 0.7 bp that in turn is a bullish signal for the pound sterling. We observed a technical rebound amid the US positive data about the consumer confidence by the Institute of Michigan. Then at the moment the pound quotes reached the level of 1.6180.

The pair USD/JPY strengthened significantly amid the global equity markets demand. After considerable sales on the American stock market the bullish sentiment increased. The US positive data by Institute of Michigan supported the dollar. The consumer sentiment index showed a record growth to the level of 86.4 in October that confirms the US economic strength against its main competitors.
