Fundamental Analysis: March 15

The Fed's probable declaration will be the primary driver to start up the week. The Central Banks will be the center of attraction this week and the BOJ, the Fed and the Bank of England will going to declare their decisions. The banks' statements can still be a reason of volatility although we're not looking forward for surprises.

Risk aversion has been elicited and the dollar came under pressure cause by the ECB President Mario Draghi's statement regarding the lack of demand for new procedures last week. In someway, traders cope up to focus on new ECB's large-scale incentives which heightened the need for the dollar at the end of the trading week. Erkki Liikanen's statement, ECB representative, about the rates being cohered at the present or lower levels unless the target inflation level is reached, adds up some buoyancy. It gave the market tranquility as well as bringing hope to investors that the European regulator had more plans. On Monday, the euro/dollar pair declined by the end of the trades.

The favorable data of the UK trade shortage did not support the price to improve as the data showed £ -3.459 billion, and this also did not made any impression on the GBP/USD. Yet if the dollar came under a wave of selling, the pound consolidated. In someway, the pound/dollar pair fell by the end of the trades on Monday.

However, the USD/JPY pair were even as it goes on the trades.

Technical Analysis for USD/JPY: March 16

As the Bank of Japan kept its monetary policy unchanged, the yen increase as expected. The bank calculates the economic effect of its January decision to reduce the rate to negative values. Though this decision does not cause the yen to modulate, however some traders still think that the simplification measures of the Bank of Japan missed out its productiveness. Now, the traders' center of attraction goes out to the Federal Reserve's meeting.

The first support occurs at 113.00 and at 112.20 subsequently. The first resistance lies at 113.80 and at 114.60 subsequently.

The price is in the Ichimoku Cloud and it is over the Chikou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen form a horizontal movement displaying a "Dead Cross". The MACD indicator is in a neutral location. The price is falling.

Fundamental Analysis: March 17

The concerns regarding about the American regulator's hawkish actions, the Bank of Japan's idleness on it's last meeting, the decrease of oil prices and the issue of British exit from the EU being resumed were the main cause of risk aversion.

The press conference of Janet Yellen was the investor's center of attraction and the market did not hope for any revision of rates from the Federal Reserve. As we have all known, Yellen's statement did not have any difference from the previous statements. The regulator stated that the Fed will heighten the rates only if the regulator finds growth and the labor market positive tendency as the monetary authorities will closely monitor incoming macroeconomic data. Yellen did not confirmed the date of the next rate hike yet and said that Fed's attainment should involve a lower pace of rate growth. The EUR/USD pair grew.

Two important releases was published by the UK. First is the unemployment rate for January which occurs at the reported level wherein the recent value was -5.1% and the report was 5.1%. Next is the Average Earnings including bonus for January which came in at the level 2,1% wherein the recent value was 1.9% and the report was 2.0%. The GBP/USD pair increased by the end of the trades.

The USD/JPY was expected to leave the flat soon but this can be very volatile. Japan's economy continuously shows a slowdown and it does not need a sturdy yen. Simultaneously, the strong dollar is not a pleasing factor for the US Federal Reserve due to the negative impact to US exporters brought by the strong dollar. The USD/JPY pair decreased by the end of the trades.

Technical Analysis for USD/CHF: March 18

The Fed's decision to keep the monetary policy unchanged cause the dollar to descend aggressively in opposition to the Swiss franc. As we have anticipated, the regulator was certain to left the policy unchanged as the National Bank of Switzerland hold its meeting on Thursday.

The first support occurs at 0.9660 and at 0.9580 subsequently. The first resistance resides at 0.9750 and at 0.9850 subsequently.

Fundamental Analysis: March 21

The Fed meeting has gone by and the regulator made changes in his plans and declared only two rate hikes instead of four. The market also remained unstable after the meeting.

The demand for euro as a funding currency keep on growing in spite of the fact that the "risk appetite" is also increasing. This factor was completely disregarded by the market which manifested the presence of strong buyers. The dynamics of the debt market signified varied trends as the 10-year government bonds yield in Germany increased in connection in the UK, but decreased to US Treasuries. The EUR/USD pair decreased by the end of the trades.

We did not received any significant macroeconomic data from the UK. We think that investors will be more attentive on the dynamics of oil market. Improving the highest of the last trading week, black gold fell by 3%. The demand for oil affected the pound/dollar pair in a usual positive way. The GBP/USD grew by the end of the trades.

The dollar/yen pair marked a new low for the last 14 months. This kind of aggrandizement of the yen could be a menace to exporters and may also disgruntle the monetary authorities of Japan. The US issued consumer confidence from the University of Michigan wherein it showed 91,7 contrary to the reported 92,1. The USD/JPY pair grew by the end of the trades.

Fundamental Analysis: March 23

Being halted from increasing in opposition to the major currencies on Tuesday, the dollar still gained support caused by the investors who stick on being heedful as a round of terrorist attacks in Brussels killed 26 people and left more than 100 injured. This devastating events in Brussels affected the euro and the British pound negatively.

The market slightly strengthened in the absence of important macroeconomic reports. Likewise, US releases did not help to enliven the market. The existing Home Sales for February embark at a low level wherein it was lessened by 7.1% whereas analysts had hoped for a more moderate fall of 2.8%. The Chicago Fed National Activity Index for February embarked at -0.29 contrary to the reported +.025 and the previous value of +0.41.

Our focus will be on the IFO Institute release. The dynamics of Gross Domestic Product of Germany is closely corresponded with this indicator and investors always keep an eye on it. This indicator has been consistently giving a negative trend for the last three months. In the midst of euro's growth, the market did not anticipated the data to be better than the consensus report. However, the data embarked at the level of 106,7 contrary to the reported 106,0. The euro/dollar pair decreased.

An Inflation Report was released by the UK. As expected, the sturdy labor market data pointed to the forecast that was a little better than the consensus report. The average monthly income was 0.2% in the last three months which would heighten inflationary pressures whilst the unemployment in UK is at the bottom-most level now since 2005. The Consumer Price Index embarked at the level of 0,3% y/y and 0,2% m/m contrary to the reported 0,4% y/y and 0,4% m/m. The pound/dollar pair aggressively declined by the end of the trades.

As of now, we are not expecting a sturdy increase of quotations. The investors were not pleased with the United States' poor macroeconomic data wherein the Existing Home Sales for February lessened by 7.1%. The home sales reduced by 6.7% from January to March which only certified again the assumptions that the Americans started to save more than spending. The dollar/yen pair became stronger.

Technical Analysis for GBP/USD: March 23, 2016

Sterling continued its low trajectory on Wednesday amidst negative economic data, terrorism attacks in Europe, and rising worry surrounding the Brexit.

The Bank of England announced a stagnant 0.3 percent inflation rate, missing the projected 0.4 percent rise. The news was paired with a looming interest rate cut, which has been standing at 0.5 percent since 2009. The nearest rate increase is in another three years, while the US is expecting at least two rate hikes this year, pushing the dollar upward.

UK’s controversial 2016 budget was also bad news for the ailing pound. Many were disappointed with budget cuts, with Secretary of State for Work and Pensions Duncan Smith resigning on Friday over lower disability benefits.

The pound fell further from its 1.4251 after the inflation announcement.

The first support occurred at 1.4094 and 1.4024 subsequently. The first resistance was at 1.4304 and 1.4375 subsequently.

Technical Analysis for GBP/USD: March 28, 2016

The British pound slightly recovered from last week’s trading as it hit a daily high at 1.4180, taking advantage of the dollar’s respite. However, the pound’s strength is expected to be short-lived as the uncertainty of the Brexit looms over the market.

A bearish outlook on the pound remains leading to the EU referendum in June. On the other end, a stronger dollar is anticipated in the following days as investors remain hopeful for a rate hike in the near future based on Fed officials’ vague remarks.

The first support occurred at 1.4098 and 1.4028 subsequently. The first resistance was at 1.4149 and 1.4220 subsequently.

Fundamental Analysis: March 29, 2016

The dollar managed to recover most of its losses which is an aftermath of the Federal Reserve meeting, and is being in demand continuously. In the midst of the Catholic Easter celebration, the traders' activity was inferior. We are hoping that today the volatility shall resume as the traders' return from their holidays' activities.

The Gross Domestic Product forecast of the US is somewhat strong and is quite surprising which of course sustained the dollar as well. The GDP was altered upwards. In the fourth quarter, the US economy increased by 1.4% contrary to the previous estimate of +1.0% and an increase of 2% in the third quarter. In favor of an early rate hike, these figures became another cause of disagreement which was consistently uttered by the Fed's representative in the past week wherein it also turned out to be supporting the demand for the dollar. The US has issued the Pending Home Sales for February wherein the data occurs at the level of 3,5% and the report was 1.0%. The EUR/USD pair slightly increase by the end of the trades on Monday.

The GBP/USD was still weak and continuously move down in the midst of concerns regarding the effect of Brexit. High risks in Brexit effect enkindled growth in volatility for the pound and the pair. The GBP/USD grew by the end of the trades.

In favor of the United States, the inflation forecast for February between Japan and US modified their differential of CPI indicators. In January, the spread was 0.1% and grew by 0.43% in the last month of winter. The USD/JPY pair reduced by the end of the trades.

Technical Analysis for AUD/USD: March 29, 2016

The Australian dollar edged up in today’s trading after mixed US data weighed down the dollar.

The US’ core PCE in February posted a dismal growth of 0.1 percent, missing the 0.2 percent forecast. The core PCE price index also performed below expectations as it rose annually by 1.7 percent. Meanwhile, consumer spending was went up by 0.1 percent, meeting government forecasts.

The US economy experienced a 1.4 percent growth in Q4, topping a 1.0 percent forecast, which carried the dollar slightly.

The Aussie dollar, which has risen by about 3.7 percent this year, is expected to continue a slow climb as talks of the currency’s overvaluation is still in the air. Investors are still waiting if the RBA will cut interest rates to keep it from further ascent.

A speech by Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen later today may sway investors to buy back the dollars.

The pair is now facing a ceiling at 0.7572 and can be seen testing 0.76.

The first support was at 0.7519 and 0.7481 subsequently. The first resistance was 0.7585 and 0.7623 subsequently.

The MACD indicator is at a negative location. The price is falling.


Technical Analysis for EUR/USD: March 29, 2016

Uncertainty on the Brexit was offset by the US’ less than impressive consumer spending, prompting the Euro’s upturn earlier today.

However, the dollar regained its footing as buyers wait for Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen’s announcement that will hopefully clear up if Fed will move to increase the benchmark rate.

The pair hit a daily high of 1.1219, but pulled back to 1.1200, eliciting a bearish sentiment from investors.

The first support was at 1.1175 and 1.1119, subsequently, while the first resistance was at 1.1243 and 1.1299 subsequently.

The price's first support occurs at 1.4320 and at 1.4240 subsequently. Meanwhile, the first resistance resides at 1.4400 and at 1.4480 subsequently.

Fundamental Analysis: March 31, 2016

The dollar experienced remarkable losses. The tremendous tender eloquence of the Fed oppressed the US currency. The external and internal risks has given emphasis by the regulator and stated that there would be a probable policy easing if needed. The statement of the regulator implies an essential enfeeblement of the dollar in coordination with its viable return to the economy stimulation. The ADP for March was issued on Wednesday wherein the report was 194,000 while the previous value was 214,000. The data occurred at the level of 200,000.

Disregarding the growth of risk appetite is not possible which is an aftermath of the growing long positions and high-yield cross-rates of the traders which gave pressure to the euro as a funding currency. The EUR/USD pair stabilized by the end of the trades.

The debt market dynamics correspond to the British currency rectification. In relative with their counterparts, United States and Germany, the 10 years UK government bonds yields decreased which also caused to diminished the appeal of the British assets. On Thursday, the performance of the Bank of England will be the center of attraction. The GBP/USD pair reduced by the end of the trades.

The United States and Japan's yields differential on government bonds reduced from November to February. In Japan, the Retail Trade revenue diminished by 5.4%. The 0% retail sales differential indicator of the Japan and US at the end of January managed to extend as far as level of 2.2% in favor of the latter in February. The USD/JPY pair slightly grew by the end of the trades.

Technical Analysis for USD/JPY: March 31, 2016

The Japanese Yen expanded in today’s early trading as Fed chairwoman Janet Yellen’s dovish remarks on Tuesday prompted investors to sell their greenbacks. The currency pair hit a daily low of 112.25.

Yellen’s speech on Tuesday to the Economic Club of New York said that caution must be exercised in hiking interest rates, lessening the possibility of a rate increase during Fed’s upcoming meeting in April. However, Yellen is optimistic on the growth of the US economy.

The dollar experienced a rally in the past weeks due to other Fed officials’ hawkish statements that implied they are eyeing to raise the numbers.

The speculation of a rate increase is now expected in Fed’s next meeting in June.

Yellen’s announcement put the Bank of Japan (BOJ) in a more difficult position, which is battling stagnant deflation amidst strong currency. BOJ’s negative interest rates set in January did very little to help the situation.

Eyes are now on BOJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda to see what monetary tools he will use to ease the problem. The BOJ may be forced to further lower the interest rates during its policy meeting in April.

The first support was at 111.82 and 111.26 subsequently. The first resistance was at 112.62 and 113.19 subsequently.

The MACD indicator is in a positive location. The price is falling.

Fundamental Analysis for AUD/USD: March 31, 2016

The Australian dollar is riding the bulls while the greenback is too weak to follow owing to the sell-off after Fed chairwoman Janet Yellen’s speech on Tuesday. In fact, the Aussie dollar is gaining too much for the Reserve Bank of Australia’s (RBA) liking.

AUD has now reached the level of 0.77, its highest in two weeks. Investors are selling their dollars and opting for Aussie ones as the latter has a better yield. However, questions are aloft on the RBA’s next move over the currency’s overvaluation.

RBA officials had previously said that the Aussie dollar is “getting ahead of itself” without significant signs of slowing down. Banks are also aiming for a lower domestic currency to successfully transition to a services-oriented economy from a mining-oriented one.

Yellen disappointed many central banks including the RBA after saying on Tuesday that tightening monetary policy should be approached with caution, slashing the hopes of many that they will see a rate hike in its policy meeting in late April.

Earlier this month, the RBA was forced to revise Aussie dollar expectations by the end of the year from US70¢ to US75¢. Furthermore, the current inflation is at 1.7 percent, missing the bank’s target of 2 to 3 percent.

If the RBA is to take a hawkish stance during its policy meeting on Tuesday, only two course of actions are in the horizon: to jawbone the Australian dollar or to cut bank rates, which now stand at a record low of 2 percent.

Fundamental Analysis for EUR/USD: April 1, 2016

The EUR/USD posted its highest rates in five months, a strong end to cap the first quarter of the year. Gaining more than 4.75 percent during the first three months, this is also Euro’s best quarter against the dollar in almost five years.

The pair is now trading at 1.1381 in a range between 1.1310 and 1.1412. The Euro is trying to break into the 1.14 level as traders wait for the upcoming economic data from the US side.

The US will release data on nonfarm payrolls later today. About 210,000 are expected to be added to the already strong labor market, but should it reveal more than the expected amount, the dollar may recover its losses since Tuesday.

It is also possible for the nonfarm payrolls to not pull the dollars up as

(The unemployment rate should hold steady at 4.9% following a series of increases in labor force participation.)

Fears on Britain’s exit in the EU and a high inflation rate buoyed the Euro against bearish greenbacks.

The Eurostat revealed yesterday that March’s inflation rate dropped by 0.1 percent from a -0.2 percent in February, far from the European Central Bank’s 2 percent target inflation.

Meanwhile, core inflation (which strips off the most volatile industry such as food, and energy) increased to 1.0 percent from last month’s 0.8 percent, the highest in six months. However, the core inflation’s rise is only attributed to businesses’ seasonal price hike for the Easter holiday and not necessarily to the whole month.

Earlier in March, the ECB cut interest rates to the red, and if needed, they will do more in the future, ECB governing council member Francois Villeroy de Galhau said on Thursday.

Technical Analysis for NZD/USD: April 1, 2016

The New Zealand dollar is maintaining a bullish trend against the US dollar despite lack of economic data released in recent days. It appears that the kiwi is only propped up by the dollar’s sell-off and not because of strong economic performance.

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) slashed interest rates in early March. Talks of another rate cut is rife as the RBNZ’s policy meeting in April comes nearer.

The bird landed at a daily low of 0.6890 in earlier session but has since bounced back to its days-long attempt of beating the 0.69 level and possibly hover pips below 0.70.

Employment data from the US is scheduled to be released later this session.

The first support is at 0.6853 and 0.6818 subsequently, while the first resistance is at 0.6939 and 0.6973 subsequently.

In the midst of the Construction Sector increase, the Gross Domestic Product of the UK in Q4 was re-assessed upwards. The business activity index occurs at 54.2 contrary to the reported 54.0 which is more than expected. The increase of the pair was finite due to fears about Brexit and the market could not disregard the probable demand on the oil market. The activity of the GBP/USD pair was merely influenced by the oil price.

The first support of price occurs at 1.4240 and at 1.4160 subsequently. The first resistance lies at 1.4320 and at 1.4400 subsequently.

Fundamental Analysis for AUD/USD: April 6, 2016

After months of rally, the Australian dollar finally experienced a setback as the week started with disappointing data and a slowly recovering US dollar.

Retail sales for the month of February was unchanged from the previous month’s 0.3 percent, a big letdown from the forecasted 0.1 percent increase.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, retail sales of household goods and department stores posted the highest increases with 0.4 percent, while the food sector decreased by 0.2 percent.

During Tuesday’s monetary policy meeting, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) decided to hold onto its 2.00 percent interest rate, sending the AUD to the bears. RBA governor said in a statement that the “economy is continuing to rebalance following the mining investment boom.”

Contrary to an expected verbal intervention to weaken the AUD, Stevens did not jawbone the currency which has risen steadily since the start of the year, even sounding dovish toward its appreciating value.

Inflation hit a seven month low of 1.7 percent while the RBA’s target range is from 2 to 3 percent. Trade deficit rose to A$3.410 billion in February from January’s A$3.156 billion. It was projected to shrink to A$2.600 billion.

After days of losses, the USD picked up over the weekend due to a positive nonfarm payroll that further strengthened the labor market.

The pair touched 0.7536 today, recording a five-day low. Heads are now turned to Fed’s meeting later today.

Fundamental Analysis for AUD/USD: April 13, 2016

The Westpac Consumer Sentiment slid in April for the second consecutive month to 95.1 percent from March’s 99.1 percent. A level below 100 shows that pessimists outnumber the optimists for the short-term and long-term outlooks.

The consumers’ bias toward economic conditions over the next 12 months and the next five years were reduced by 5.5 percent and 5.9 percent, respectively. Family finances compared to one year ago dropped by 3.8 percent, while family finances over the next 12 months waned by 6.6 percent.

Meanwhile, the unemployment expectations index softened by 1.8 percent, which means that consumer confidence on low unemployment rate is high.

The disappointing and a bit surprising figures squashed hopes that the public’s confidence will follow a considerably optimistic trend because of the previous four consecutive releases above 100.

Westpac chief economist Bill Evans said that consumers are probably seeing the strong Australian dollar as detrimental for future growth. The media and RBA officials have openly said that the AUD may be overvalued.

The low consumer sentiment is offset by China’s hefty trade data which sent the AUD to bullish territory. After a 25.4 percent fall in March 2015, Chinese exports grew by an immense 11.5 percent, surpassing the forecasted 2.5 percent by leaps and bounds. However, it is important to note that the measured period included the Lunar New Year, a considerably lavish celebration by the Chinese.

Chinese imports contracted by 7.6 percent, positively missing the projected 10.2 percent decrease. This leaves the country’s trade balance at $29.86 billion, slimmer than the estimated $34.95 billion.

Mixed statements from Fed officials on Tuesday injected volatility into the US currency as Richmond Fed President Jeffrey Lacker said that he is backing rate hikes this year due to inflation’s fast pace. Meanwhile, Fed Dallas President Robert Kaplan said that an interest rate in April does not bode well for the weak economic growth.

Furthermore, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) revised its 2016 economic growth forecast by 0.2 percent, the third consecutive cuts it made since July last year. IMF estimated the US economy to grow by only 2.4 percent this year, lower than January’s 2.6 percent projection.

The AUD has broken into 77 cents in earlier session, but is now back to 0.7670.

There were two reasons which caused the yen to put under pressure. Firstly, it was because it cannot withstand the development of Nikkei and the last thing is, its fall is an aftermath of the statement of Japanese Ministry which regards to the probable action launching that is intended to restrict the inflation of the national currency.
