"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

22.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

The US dollar was under pressure-the dollar index basket (USDX) closed the trading day at around 84.95 at the beginning of the week. There was not any important macroeconomic statistics this day. Traders are again trying to implement the corrective movement within the US dollar after the last US Fed protocol where it was pointed out the US dollar revaluation negative effects.

Against this background the main dollar competitors were in demand during the day, but now it is still too early to talk about the 100% dollar correction. The last two weeks we noticed how bulls tried to disperse the quotes up several times and faced strong pressure from the bears part. It should also be noted the negative trend on the commodity market the CRB index finished the trading day in the "red zone" that is a positive factor for the dollar and will provide little support to it.

We do not expect the important macroeconomic statistics. We should emphasize the real estate sales release in the US secondary market. The real estate market releases which we received at the end of last week point out to a demand recovery after the August recession and in this regard we can expect the data release at the forecasted medians level.

Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The euro fell at the end of the yesterday trades. Earlier the single European currency has strengthened against the US dollar. However, the euro achievements were not impressive as its price has remained in the consolidation range and the euro has not shown any new local highs.

The long-awaited beginning of the ECB asset purchase program was treated by investors with almost complete indifference and had no effect on the market.

Buyers can not break through above the strong resistance level of 1.2850 the second week. The long consolidation pointed to the clear price down rebound.

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.

Pound (GBP)

General overview

The sterling had lost some positions. Before this the pound was in the great demand. The pound has grown more than any other majors against the US dollar. It is possible that these investors sentiment was amid the fact that the "cable" is now the most profitable currency and in the conditions of uncertainty is an attractive asset for the shorts.

The downward trend line is broken upwards. It is a good signal for the further mid-term bearish trend reversal. However, the only thing that indicates the weakening buyers force is volumes.

The price is finding the first support at 1.6100, the next one is at 1.6030. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6180, the next one is at 1.6270.

General overview

The Japanese yen strengthened against the dollar at the beginning of the trading day and declined at the second half of the day. As a result, the session within the pair USD/JPY was closed neutrally - on the opening prices. The causes of such a scenario could be events on the stock markets and the US market debts. The Nikkei index has risen nearly by 4.0% after reports that the Japan state pension investment fund plans to increase the share of Japanese equities in its portfolio to 25%, but was not supported by the events on the US and European stock markets, as, in general, by the "Treasuries ", profitability that fell slightly.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

23.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

We still observe a flat within the major pairs in the Forex market. The lower inflationary pressure in the world's largest economies caught by surprise traders and now the asset managers cannot identify the most "weak link." On October 8 Federal Reserve pointed to the dollar revaluation the US consumer price index negative impact and the investors rushed to close longs within the US dollar. However, as we see, traders cannot still find the dollar alternative and on this background we have recently seen a side tendency. The trading day did not bring important macroeconomic statistics. The United States pleased investors with positive release sales in the secondary market.

The sales rose by 2.4% in September that indicates the confident consumer demand. It is also necessary to emphasize the American stock market rapid growth - Apple reported the record profits for the 3rd quarter of this year that with the US positive macroeconomic statistics cheered bulls up to open longs. Against this positive background, the US dollar was able to strengthen against its major competitors.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

24.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

The US dollar was able to strengthen its position against its major competitors despite the many investors expectations. The pair EUR/USD lost 0.4% at the end of the trading amid the CPI moderately positive data in the United States. The September inflation remained unchanged at the level of year -on -year 1.7% that is 0.1% better than the forecasted medians. We observed the US 10-year bond yields sharp increase against this background.

The GBP/USD also remained under pressure during the day amid the Bank of England last meeting negative reports. There are still only two monetary control representatives Weal and McCafferty vote for a rate increase. The other IFA members hold more conservative views. The Bank of England is now focused on its main trading partner (the euro) problems, and therefore it expects the UK economic growth slowdown.

The Japan trade balance poor statistics for September cheered bulls up within the pair USD/JPY for opening "longs". The September negative balance again increased due to the strong imports growth. Japanese exporters began to feel much better with the national currency devaluation in September. The US moderately positive statistics on inflation has increased the dollar demand.

Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The single European currency has survived another day of pressure against the US dollar. In early trading the dollar was strengthening amid the remained sentiments caused by information that the ECB intends to expand the range of assets purchases, then the European currency came under pressure after the US economic data release that confirm the inflation increase.

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.

Pound (GBP)

General overview

The pound came also under pressure against the dollar. The first reason for investors frustration is the Bank of England last meeting minutes. The "minutes" pointed to the British regulator tendency to soft policies and pushed the pair GBP/USD down.

The sellers managed to break below the support level of 1.6100 amid the fundamental factors.

The volumes indicate the clear bears weakening. But as the trade is still in the downtrend line direction - we cannot talk about the upward direction.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

28.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

The US dollar weakened slightly against most of its competitors - the dollar index basket finished trading at around 85.71. The pair EUR/USD enjoyed a moderate demand. The traders ignored the positive data about the US new buildings sales in September that indicates traders are set to the euro/dollar upward movement. The last week commodities again showed a decline, but this factor did not support the US dollar demand.

The UK GDP release for the 3rd quarter came in line with the traders expectations - 0.7%. Traders close short positions within the pair GBP/USD, as the negative data have already been laid in quotes - we have seen the pound sales for the last three days. At the moment the British currency quotes reached the level of 1.6095 and then we noted some technical rebound.

The pair USD/JPY was under pressure, it was not able to finish the trading on a positive note. After the "bull rally" that we saw last week, traders partially took profits on "longs". Nevertheless, the bulls position is strong enough the world's leading stock markets ended the day with the quotations steady growth and with the US positive macroeconomic statistics will support the dollar demand in the short term.

S375Fbuz5W.jpg

Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The euro is under pressure after the EU representative Katainen said that Germany's potential growth rate was "too low". While earlier the ECB Governing Council member Noyer said that France and Italy were lagging behind with their reforms and the eurozone economy that has already completed reforms was growing.

The three-day consolidation is at the support level of 1.2600 and has led to the price rebound upwards. The buyers corrected the euro to the strong resistance level of 1.2730 amid the low volumes.

The price is finding the first support at 1.2670, the next one is at 1.2600. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2730, the next one is at 1.2790.

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

The MACD indicator is in a neutral territory. The price is increasing.

Trading recommendations

The downward bounce potential target is 1.2600.

47VlqB8avd.jpg

Pound (GBP)

General overview

The pound rose after the UK GDP data. However, the market is not in a hurry to fall into euphoria. Taking into consideration that the eurozone economic recovery is progressing very slowly and concerns about the US and China slowdown we can assume that the Bank of England will delay the first rate increase until the second half of 2015. It was earlier expected that the rates will be raised in February. The UK weak salary growth and absence of inflationary pressure makes the period of monetary policy easing by the Bank of England much longer.

There was a short-term price rebound from the support level of 1.6030 that allowed the buyers to correct the price to the downward trend line of 1.6100.

The corrective GBP growth is not supported by the trading volumes.

The price is finding the first support at 1.6100, the next one is at 1.6030. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6180, the next one is at 1.6270.

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

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

Trading recommendations

The bears need to break below 1.6100 for a steady decrease. The way to the mark 1.6030 will be opened after this breakthrough.

cfmh5bLkv5.jpg

Yen (JPY)

General overview

The yen rose for the first time for seven days on Friday against the US dollar after the reports that New York's physician was hospitalized with the Ebola diagnosis. The messages about the deadly disease in the US largest city provoked the safe assets demand growth.

The US dollar growth against the Japanese yen has stopped above the resistance level of 108.00 and then the pair fell.

The price is finding the first support at 107.60, the next one is at 107.10. The price is finding the resistance at 108.50.

There is a confirmed and a strong 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. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

The MACD indicator is in a positive territory. The price is correcting.

Trading recommendations

We expect the 107.10 line break that will open the way to 108.00, further then towards 108.50.

YzkX52KLXH.jpg

Franc (CHF)

General overview

The franc partially compensated for the losses. The dollar has reduced its first weekly growth for the last three weeks against the basket of currencies on fears that the Ebola virus can affect the economy in the run-up to the Federal Reserve meeting next week.

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 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. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

The MACD indicator is in a neutral territory. The price is decreasing.

Trading recommendations

We advise to long with the first target - 0.9560. When the pair consolidates above the first target, we can open deals to the level of 0.9620.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

29.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

The US dollar was under pressure - the dollar index basket (USDX) finished trading at around 85.49. Despite the mixed news the pair EUR / USD finished the trading day in the "green zone". The October release by the IFO Institute came out worse than traders had expected, at the level of 103.2, showing a minimum value since December 2012. According to the press release the German economy is experiencing serious difficulties because of the world geopolitical tensions. The report about the changes in M3 money supply has been showing an upward trend for 4 months in a row in the euro area which is a positive factor for inflation. The ECB loose monetary policy is beginning to give the first results, but to talk about the CPI growth is now too early. However, traders opened "longs" to the single European currency, based on downward correction development after the US Federal Reserve meeting.

The pair GBP/USD was in demand amid the profit-taking continuation on short positions and the UK positive macroeconomic statistics. According to the British industry confederation the October retail sales release is slightly better than market participants had expected that has been welcomed by traders amid the economic growth slowdown in the third quarter. However, it should be noted that the UK short and long term bond yields extension is a negative factor for the British currency that is now revalued.

Traders continued to take profits on long positions in the pair USD/JPY. A similar action was also observed on the world's leading stock exchanges. During the day the pair dollar/yen has moderately declined and during the quotation it reached the mark of 107.60. There was no Japan and the US important macroeconomic statistics publication and against this background investors regained namely technical factors.

Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The euro was treated differently at the trades - the single currency initially declined against the dollar, and then again grew, but as a result recorded a small "profit". The Germanys economic data, represented by the German Ifo institute, affected the euro but the US reports supported the single European currency.

The trading slightly changed according to this instrument. The euro bulls continue to push the price up to the nearest resistance level of 1.2790 amid the reduced volumes.

The testing level for its strength will be during the fundamental data release.

Yen (JPY)

General overview

We expect important events for this week that reflected on the yesterday's pair dollar/yen trading. In this case, besides the FOMC meeting results, investors are waiting for more solutions with the similar Japans meetings (where the monetary policy destiny is decided) and in a given situation investors decided to correct position and fix some profits that led to the dollar decline against the Japanese yen.

The trade is in the upward direction within the Japanese yen. The corrective price decline for three days is observed without the volume support.

kWNZ9GC0j8.jpg

Franc (CHF)

General overview

The market is expecting the key week events the US FOMC meeting that ends today explains the lack of activity. The low dollar sales were a topic of the US news, pointing to the US uneven housing market recovery and the economic activity slowdown in Texas. The property purchase signed contracts rose in the secondary market in September after the August decline, but was significantly lower than it was expected.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

30.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

We observe a bearish sentiment within the US dollar - the dollar index basket (USDX) finished trading at around 85.36. The pair EUR / USD has been on a positive note for three trading days in a row. The pair sharply fell on yesterday trades. Traders' attention was focused on the US release. A report on the consumer durable goods orders came out worse than the forecasted medians in September, showing a 1.3% decline while we were observing the consumer confidence positive data by the Conference Board.

The pair GBP/USD enjoyed a moderate demand during the day amid the short positions opening within the US dollar along the entire market. The consumer confidence release by the Conference Board rose to 94.5 in October, showing multi-year highs amid the employment growth in the United States, thus freezing bulls enthusiasm within the British currency.

The bulls are returning to the equity markets that supports the pair USD/JPY demand. The US stock market is rapidly developing; the high-tech index Nasdaq is the growth leader that shows us the strong bullish trend. Against this background, even the US negative release on consumer durable goods orders could not spoil the bullish sentiment and after the quotations reduction to the mark of 107.70 we observed the pair strong demand and the position recovery. The pair sharply increased at the end of the yesterday trades.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

31.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

The day was marked by an increased volatility - traders delayed the two-day meeting announcement by the US Federal Reserve. The monetary regulator announced the QE-3 program completion as it was expected.

The Fed repeated a familiar phrase to all investors about the need to keep rates low for an "extended period of time". The short-term inflationary forecast remains negative because of the lower energy price and other factors. The monetary regulator did not explain what these factors could be. It is quite possibly be the dollar revaluation; however, the monetary authorities have not answered.

The labor market progress was not reviewed - the Fed pointed to the steady employment growth that in future can contribute to the rapid rates increase. As traders did not hear the phrase that monetary authorities are concerned about the "strong dollar" - they hurried back to the market and began to buy the US currency.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

05.11.2014

Fundamental analysis

The trades opening gave us a hope that the beginning of the week would be in the volatile direction. The US dollar has sharply grown up against all of the major competitors after of the China manufacturing activity (PMI) indicator decrease to the 5- months low in October. However, the "bulls" call about the US dollar was developed only in the dollar dispute with the yen where the US dollar continued its growth formed by the Bank of Japan last Friday when it announced the easing program expansion. The trades against the European majors were reduced to the consolidation range and ended on the opening prices relative to the pound and with a very slight increase to the euro.

The news calendar did not please the investors with any important information volumes - the activity index data (PMI) in Europe and the US was published and showed a good result. However, the short-term optimism caused by the UK information, was suppressed by the US reports that the prices returned to their original positions. The data published by the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) reported the activity growth in the US manufacturing sector in October. The PMI index has risen to the level of 59.0 after 56.6 in September when it was expected to see a slowdown to 56.0.

The good cable sentiment provided the UK economic data that announced the indicator activity result in the UK manufacturing sector.

Yen (JPY)

General overview

The yen sales were continued, despite the fact that it was a day off because of the holiday in Japan on Monday. The BoJ statement on Friday expressed even more clearly the contrast between the Japan monetary policy and the US regulators that reinforced and supports the dollar growth impulse against the Japanese yen. In addition, the Japan Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF) supports the yen sales about the fact that it plans to increase significantly the foreign stocks share in their portfolio, and it is a negative factor for the Japanese currency.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

06.11.2014

Fundamental analysis

The market has likely taken a waitand-see position, expecting the end of the week when the reports about the European Central Bank decision and the US labor market situation will be published. In this regard, we again observed the weak lateral trade at the auction where the dollar was sold, taking profit on the previously open positions. It is clear that investors have taken a pause and quite reasonably considering the possible new targets emergence after these important events. In addition, one reason for the dollar sale could be the US economic news that showed a negative change.

The US news will issue the data that can provide guidelines on the labor market situation in October the ADP report about the work places in the private sector is supposed to be seen with the 220 thousand increase after the earlier 213 thousand. This result will be the dollar support if it is confirmed by the forecasts. The October PMI data about the non business sector by the International Governance Institute (ISM) is less optimistic where the slowdown to 58.0 from 58.6 is possible while the overall index level is still high. It is quite possible that we will observe the range trading at the session today.

Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The attitude towards the euro has changed; the euro has grown against the dollar and other competitors. Perhaps, besides the investors desire to take profits on the short positions within the euro in advance of the ECB meeting closure, the EU economic data presented by the Eurozone prices dynamics report supported the euro. However, the European currency fell at the end of the trades.

Buyers have broken through the strong resistance level of 1.2500 upwards. The level breakthrough was amid the reduced volumes and price bounced down, breaking through the level backwards.

The price is finding the support at 1.2400. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2500, the next one is at 1.2600.

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

The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The MACD indicator is oversold. The price is decreasing.

Trading recommendations

The approach to the level of 1.2600 may lead to a price rebound down. However the price action does suggest that the potential rebound target is the support level of 1.2400.

gAZ35E6d66.jpg

Pound (GBP)

General overview

The British pound spent the day in the very narrow side corridor. The pair attempted to decrease, but returned to the opening prices. Obviously, this situation might be explained by the UK weak news and pending the Bank of England meeting release that will be published on Thursday.

Yen (JPY)

General overview

The dollar growth continued against the yen. The pair stopped in a no-mans land. Earlier the Japanese yen also strengthened against the US dollar. In fact, in this case there was a profit taking on the important week events expectations. However, today the yen is again under pressure at the session caused by the Bank of Japan head H. Kuroda who made it clear about intentions to continue easing for the economy stimulation and, on the other hand, the reports about the Republicans winning the elections.

The formed consolidation at the level of 113.50 was followed by the price rebound upwards with the further local maximum price updating at the level of 114.60.

The local maximum updating allowed buyers to touch to the resistance level of 114.60.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

07.11.2014

Fundamental analysis

The European Commission forecast has been revised downwards in terms of the euro zone economic growth in 2014, but the euro dynamics remained practically unchanged and then some experts have concluded that there would not be negative trends in the euro zone economy, the ECB would not apply the additional incentive measures. Perhaps it is so. However, the euro managed to lose about 100 points and before the meeting outcome announcement the market will decide whether it was a reaction to the weak service sector business activity data in October or to the significant retail sales decline or to the fact that we expect that Draghi will announce the additional measures.

The Eurozone currency updated lows. Earlier the euro managed to win back some losses amid the Narayana Kocherlakotys unexpected statements, the head of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis who had paid his attention to the US inflation low rate and told the possible Fed rate increase was inappropriate in 2015. Without any doubt, Kocherlakota knows what he is speaking about, because the US economy still needs stimulation despite the vigorous officials speeches.

We expect quite good UK news. Besides the Bank of England meeting, traditionally held synchronously with the ECB, both the industrial production and the manufacturing industries data for September will be published, and the HBOS housing price index. It must be said that the confident speeches in the first half of the year left no trace and the market is not worried about the fact when the Bank of England plans tightening monetary policy. The market knows that it will not happen in the short term and the meeting will unlikely lead to the significant pound movements. Nevertheless, the pair is again testing new minimum mark.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

10.11.2014

Fundamental analysis

The last week ended with the dollar strengthening against its competitors in the financial markets. The ECB and the Bank of England monetary policy decision that was announced on Thursday, met our forecasts, the changes were not made, but the market reacted to these results by the dollar large-scale buying. Obviously, the investors regarded the BoE inactivity as the fears acknowledgement that the UK economic recovery had slowed down; there is a risk to return the downtrend and in these circumstances, the regulator does not intend to tighten the policy.

As for the ECB, the signaling point for the market was the M. Draghi’s press conference that reaffirmed the European Central Bank decision to increase the quantitative easing volumes.

The US economic data were scarce, but they were on the dollar side - the initial jobless claims fell immediately by 10 thousand last week while we expected the data would be significantly less positive, only two thousand. This information could also support the dollar as to some extent it added confidence that the coming labor report would note good results. According to our forecasts the employment statistics will announce its growth by 233/230 thousand of work places in the US non-agricultural sector and the US unemployment rate retention at the level of 5.9%. If the fact does not meet our expectations for the worst, the dollar demand will remain at the high level.

Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The single European currency could recover a few. Earlier the euro continued to decline against the dollar and fell to the new local lows. The reports that the European Central Bank left its key interest rate at the record low level of 0.05%, initially supported the euro, but the M. Draghi’s press-conference changed the market sentiment and the euro was in the sales wave.

The support level of 1.2400 was broken through. The level breakthrough was amid the high volumes. The pair failed to consolidate below and returned to the position above this support.

The price is finding the first support at 1.2400, the next one is at 1.2300. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2500, the next one is at 1.2600.

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

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

Trading recommendations

The downward movement will be continued. The potential decrease targets are the two levels of support: 1.2400 and 1.2300.

RDa6EyYVed.jpg

Pound (GBP)

General overview

The pound slightly rose against the dollar. Earlier the British pound fell. The Bank of England has not changed the monetary policy parameters- the refinancing rate remained at the level of 0.5% and the bond purchases program is in the amount of 375 billion of British pounds.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

11.11.2014

Fundamental analysis

The week beginning was noted by the some dollar recovery against all majors. The Friday trade results were not on the US dollar side. The dollar fell against all of its major competitors after the US employment data partially met our expectations. In general, the employment report result was not bad - the unemployment rate fell in October to 5.8% against 5.9% in September as we had not expected the changes and the number of part-time workers and those who have no hope in finding a job, reduced by 0.3%. The new September workplace data was revised upwards. However, the October new workplace growth came out much worse than it had been expected amounting 214 thousand instead of 233 thousand that confused the market and provoked the US dollar sales.

Moreover, it seems that the technical factors have put some pressure on the dollar as the levels where the main pairs are now are distinguished by the strong support/resistance which with the obvious dollar overbought was able to increase the profit fixation on the previous open long positions within the dollar.

With regard to the dollar perspectives, the less strong job growth has not changed the market preferences and the "bullish" attitude towards the dollar. However, the absence of important events in the US as well as in other regions can support the correction that began last Friday and then the week trades will be in ranges.

Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The euro fell sharply at yesterday's trading. The attitude towards the euro was changed last week - buyers started to buy the European currency and at the end of the Friday it strengthened against the dollar and other majors. Obviously, the euro overbought reached the level that prompted investors to the correction, all the more that the US statistics gave rise to the emotional reaction against the dollar, showing the October work places increase data worse than it had been forecasted.

We observe the upper bound testing of the downtrend channel at the level of 1.2500. The price exit from the channel limits opens the way to the resistance level of 1.2500 in the long term.

The price is finding the first support at 1.2400, the next one is at 1.2300. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2500, the next one is at 1.2600.

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

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

Trading recommendations

We suppose the pair will go to 1.2400 first. Having overcome the first target the price might go downwards to 1.2300.

u5KxJmM9ue.jpg

Pound (GBP)

General overview

The sterling fell slightly against the dollar yesterday. The British pound also grew against the dollar on Friday on the common emotions caused by the US economic data. However, the pound rise was less energetic in comparison with the euro one; the UK economic data could slow it down. The week news is not rich in the number of messages, but the important and influential information will be sufficient. The statistical data can support the pound.

The consolidation led to the correctional growth above the level of 1.5870. The pair then declined and closed trades below this level.

The price is finding the first support at 1.5660. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5870, the next one is at 1.5950.

There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. 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 price is core trend. We expect the level of 1.5660 testing soon.

Yen (JPY)

General overview

The dollar began to fight for its position against the Japanese currency. A pessimism towards the dollar became evident on Friday and the US dollar declined at the end of the trading day within the pair USD/JPY. The US dollar sales for the yen began after the US labor market report, some of which contained information about the forecasts failure. The Bank of Japan minutes and the Institute president H. Kuroda’s speech showed a clear intention to maintain the easing policy and increase incentives if required.

Buyers twice tried to get closer to 115.80 resistance, but without success. There was the price rebound downwards. The price rebound from the level allowed sellers to get out of the rising channel. The pair showed some growth and closed the trading day above the level of 114.60 yesterday.

The price is finding the first support at 114.60, the next one is at 113.50. The price is finding the resistance at 115.80.

The MACD indicator is in a positive territory. The price is increasing.

Trading recommendations

The pair can grow to the resistance level of 115.80.

N37b1Z2ctn.jpg

The dollar increased against the Swiss franc. Earlier the franc sharply strengthened on Friday. The dollar showed the maximum fall for the last three weeks after the employment report publication was slightly worse than the average forecasts amid the discussions about the fact when the Fed will raise the interest rates from the record lows.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

12.11.2014

Fundamental analysis

The new week was opened by the attempts to continue the dollar sales on the sentiment formed by the US labor report that was published last Friday. However, the success was not long on the "bears" side within the dollar, the levels where the US dollar had fallen turned out to be attractive for purchases and investors began to stock up the long positions volumes within the dollar. As a result, the Monday's session ended with the dollar strengthening against all the major competitors. The US news was not published on Monday. However, the yesterday's trades ended with the dollar weakening.

We expect the NFIB small business sentiment report, it is considered that the optimism index rose to 95.5 vs. 95.3 in October that is a positive factor for moods within the dollar, but most of all it will not provoke reactions and increased volatility on the market. Apparently, this session will be marked by the weak range trading as the previous one.

The US GDP showed its growth in the third quarter. The service sector has shown an increase in the workplaces by 181 thousand. It is worth noting that service sector includes 52 thousand from the recreational sphere. The processing industry has increased the workplaces by 15 thousand. The US population share in the so-called labor force showed an increase from 62.7% to 62.8% in October this year. The 62.7% index for September 2014 corresponds to the minimum indicator in February 1978.

Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The euro held the Tuesday trading in the narrow side corridor and at the end of the session rose against the dollar. Earlier the euro fell amid the European news as the US news was lack of important information and the euro was under pressure due to the last events the less strong US labor report as well as the medium-level sentiment, preserving the dollar demand.

Yen (JPY)

General overview

The USD/JPY trades showed a different directional movement, ended by the yen victory at the end of the trading day. Besides the general market sentiment, the pair dynamics was influenced by the events in the Japan stock market and in the US government debt market. The Nikkei fall provoked the risk avoidance and the yen strengthening at the beginning of the day, but the US "Treasuries" bond yields growth led to the dollar support in the US session.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

13.11.2014

Fundamental analysis

We again observed the volatile range trading on the currency market yesterday. The major pairs remained in the side corridors that had been formed earlier, only this time the US dollar rose at the end of the trading day. The exceptions were the events against the dollar and the yen; in this case the dollar has reached the new local maximum and has closed trades with a profit. It is difficult to say what caused the dollar decrease earlier that mainly occurred in the US session. Perhaps, the absence of the news "irritants and the speech by the Boston Fed president Rosengren influenced the market sentiment, who told during the interview with media that the US central bank should refrain from raising interest rates until the inflation target level returned to the Federal Reserve target level defined at the level below 2%.

It seems that there will not be large-scale changes in the currency market - the dollar will likely trade in the same way against the euro and the yen, but it is possible the volatility increase in the pair pound/dollar because there will be much important and influential information in the UK.

Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The Swiss franc rose before the referendum, scheduled on the November 30 after which the gold reserves increase in the ratio of 20% to the foreign exchange reserves from the current 8% can be required from the Swiss regulator.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

14.11.2014

Fundamental analysis

There was the volatility growth within the major pairs yesterday. The pair EUR/USD ended the trading day in the "red zone" amid the empty macroeconomic calendar. The oil quotes reduction contributed to the US dollar rise during the day. The bond market dynamics also supported the dollar demand on Wednesday we observed the German and the USA yields spread extension.

As we noted in our previous review - the Bank of England negative inflation report will encourage bears to open short positions within the pair GBP/USD. The monetary regulator lowered both the GDP growth and inflation estimation for the next two years. We expect to achieve the 2% target inflation by the end of 2017 that greatly upset the currency market participants. Against this negative background, traders hurried to get rid of pounds that lost 0.85% after the trades.

We observe the steady uptrend within the pair USD/JPY and we do not see any reasons for its failure. The dollar feels quite at ease and bulls use the short-term quotations decrease to increase the "longs". We observed the technical correction in the US and Japan stock markets and against this background the pair dollar/yen quotes fell to the level of 114.88 after that we again saw the US dollar demand yesterday.

YM4h1nv8wf.jpg

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The euro was trading in the narrow side corridor and finally fixed the negative result against the dollar. There were some eurozone economic data that have shown the positive result, but it was not enough to give the euro solid support.

The price is finding the first support at 1.2400, the next one is at 1.2300. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2500, the next one is at 1.2600.

The price is in the Cloud and it is below the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a horizontal movement and the Kijun-sen shows an upward movement and form a Golden Cross.

The MACD indicator is in a neutral territory. The price is increasing.

Trading recommendations

The potential rebound target are the support levels of 1.2400 and 1.2300. The potential decrease target is the support level of 1.2200.

8drE0W5syh.jpg

Pound (GBP)

KE0fV6W256.jpg

Yen (JPY)

General overview

The Japanese yen was traded against the dollar in the side consolidation and closed the session with small losses.

General overview

The Swiss franc strengthened slightly against the dollar.

The Swiss National Bank president, Jordan said that the adoption of the so-called Save Our Swiss Gold initiative would be a "fatal error of judgment and would complicate the central bank work.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

18.11.2014

Fundamental analysis

We observed volatility spikes within the major pairs last Friday that continued on the yesterday trades. After the moderately positive euro zone GDP data the EUR/USD reached the mark of 1.2550 from which the pair fell. The economic growth showed 0.2% in the 3rd quarter instead of the expected 0.1%. However, traders ignored this report amid the US strong economic growth, but economic growth in the Old World has not led to sustainable development. The US positive macroeconomic statistics will allow the euro/dollar to test 24th figure. Both releases from the United States pleased traders with the positive data and at the moment of quotes reached the level of 1.2455.

The pair GBP/USD has started the trading week at the minimum value over the past 13 months. The Bank of England inflation release that was published on Wednesday 12 November has sent the pound to knockout. We have watched both the pair GBP/USD reduction and the UK and the US negative bond yields expansion for the last three trading days of the last week. The US positive macroeconomic retail sales and the consumer confidence statistics by the Institute of Michigan has only reinforced the "bearish rally" within the British pound and at the moment of quotes reached the mark of 1.5720 after which the pair decreased back to the minimums.

The United States pleased traders with the positive macroeconomic statistics. The October retail sales rose by 0.3% while the consumer confidence indicator by the Institute of Michigan showed maximum values in July 2007. The increased consumer confidence is laying a strong foundation for strong economic growth in the 4th quarter of the current year.

DDcF8R3Jj8.jpg

Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The euro continues its downward movement after a slight correction. Earlier the euro demand has grown that allowed the European currency to finish trades with a profit against the dollar. This point is attributed to the US inflation perspectives that reduce our confidence in the US rate increase any time soon. However, the technical factors were a more serious as that triggering increased tendency to lock in profits on the long dollar positions.

Buyers corrected the euro/dollar amid the low volumes to the downward trend line of 1.2500. The downward trend line of 1.2500 is a key resistance for the bearish trend. The price could not fix above this level.

The price is finding the first support at 1.2400, the next one is at 1.2300. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2500, the next one is at 1.2600.

The price is in the Cloud and it is below the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement.

The MACD indicator is in a neutral territory. The price is correcting.

Trading recommendations

The price is likely to go to the downward trend lines 1.2400, 1.2300.

Xjly01z88M.jpg

Pound (GBP)

General overview

The pound sales were continued and the overall session result was negative for the "cable". The negative sentiment was formed by the Bank of England quarter inflation report that was published last Wednesday and showed the inflation forecasts decrease and the UK economic growth.

There was a rapid price rebound from the support level of 1.5600 upwards. The rebound was followed by the increased volume. Nevertheless the pair fell below this level.

The price is finding the first support at 1.5550. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5660, the next one is at 1.5870.

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

At the moment of quotation the pair EUR/USD reached the level of 1.2540, the pair GBP/USD is consolidating around the level of 1.5660 and the pair USD/JPY reached the level of 116.70.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

20.11.2014

Fundamental analysis

The US dollar was under pressure yesterday. The pair EUR/USD was in demand during the day amid the positive release from the ZEW institute. The business sentiment rose to 11.5 in Germany that is the highest value over the past three months. The positive expectations about the German economy perspectives greatly encourage us, but we should not deceive ourselves - the trend is still negative and we should see a series of positive data. The neutral bond market news also contributed to the euro purchase.

The pound was showing an upward trend during the day. The UK consumer price index has coincided with the forecast, showing an increase by 0.1% and at the same time the PPI rate has slightly decreased. The main reason for the inflation increasing became tariffs for the transport services. Nevertheless, the US and UK negative yield spreads held bulls back from the opening long positions. Traders have virtually ignored the inflation data and during the day we saw a flat within the pair GBP/USD. Nevertheless the pair grew.

The economic instability provided the political instability in Japan. "Abenomics" is under pressure and, in this regard, the Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced the early elections and suspended the sales tax increase for 18 months. The pair USD/JPY reached the mark of 117.06 against this negative background, then we again saw profit-taking on long positions, allowing the yen to recover some lost ground. However, the US stock market growth encouraged bulls again for the "longs" opening.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

25.11.2014

Fundamental analysis

The dollar weakening was noted in the major currency pairs yesterday. If looking beyond the events within the pairs EUR/USD and USD/CHF, nothing remarkable happened at the last trades. The dollar strengthened against the pound and fell against the yen, but there were consolidation movements on these instruments and they were within the previously formed correction ranges.

In the dollar and the euro dispute there was a sharp dollar strengthening that led not only to the dollar increase by the end of the last week, during which the dollar was losing against the European currency most of the time. These euro large-scale sales for the dollar can be attributed to the ECB President M. Draghis speech who had promised to continue quantitative easing on Friday in his report at the European Banking Congress in Frankfurt. The ECB president statements gave more certainty that the European regulator would begin to include in their purchases the Central Bank and the Eurozone sovereign debt.

There were published little the US economic statistical data, the most interesting is the Fed Kansas City report that showed the manufacturing sector activity increase in November that was higher than expected - the index grew to the level of 7 from 4 in October, though we expected to see improvements only to 6. The week news does not plan to present the important data and those that are preparing to leave for the most part are expected to be with the positive dynamics.

It is unlikely that the attitude towards the US dollar has changed, if there are no surprising deviations from forecasts to the negative side for the dollar.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

26.11.2014

Fundamental analysis

The dollar grew against the European competitors and has consolidated against the yen. Earlier we observed the situation where the risk tendency had increased. The news was weak in the amount of data that could affect the market, but it gave some impulse to the pair. The European indicators good business sentiment and less positive US economic statistics added some pressure on the US dollar. However, the dollar loss was within the correction range and did not testify any fundamental changes in the investors’ sentiment.

The news will publish more important information and forecasts about the expected indicators promise to be in the dollar favor. The GDP assessment for the third quarter showed the result + 3.9% q/q, the consumer confidence index by the Conference board in November fell to 88.7 in November.
