Analysis and trading recommendations for EUR/USD and GBP/USD on August 2

Analysis of transactions in the EUR / USD pair

Euro fell on Friday despite good GDP and inflation reports from the Euro area.

Trading recommendations for August 2

EUR / USD will again move depending on the economic reports that the Euro area will release today. Strong data on manufacturing activity will lead to a price increase, while a weaker than expected report could result in another decline in the market. Then, in the afternoon, a similar report will be published from the US. This time, if the data expectations exceeds, dollar will regain its strength, which could lead to a decline in the pair.

For long positions:

Open a long position when euro reaches 1.1882 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1920. Demand will increase if the Euro area publishes strong economic data. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

It is also possible to buy at 1.1857 and 1.1818, but the MACD indicator line must be in the oversold area in order to bring about a market reversal to 1.1882.

For short positions:

Open a short position when euro reaches 1.1857 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1818. A decline will occur if the Euro area releases weak economic reports. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

It is also possible to sell at 1.1882 and 1.1920, but the MACD line must be in the overbought area in order to provoke a market reversal to 1.1857.

Analysis of transactions in the GBP / USD pair

Pound did not hit the local high last Friday. To be more specific, it was the multiple failed attempts to break through 1.3975 that led to the closure of many long positions in the market.

Trading recommendations for August 2

Pound will trade today depending on the data on UK manufacturing activity. If the figure turns better than the forecast, then GBP/USD will increase rather sharply. Then, in the afternoon, a similar report will be published from the US. This time, if the data exceeds expectations, dollar will regain its strength, which could lead to a decline in the pair.

For long positions:

Open a long position when pound reaches 1.3910 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.3956 (thicker green line on the chart). GBP/USD will climb up if UK publishes good PMI data. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

It is also possible to buy at 1.3885 and 1.3846, but the MACD line should be in the oversold area in order to set off a market reversal to 1.3910.

For short positions:

Open a short position when pound reaches 1.3885 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.3846. A decline will occur if UK releases weak economic reports. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

It is also possible to sell at 1.3910 and 1.3956, but the MACD line should be in the overbought area in order to trigger a market reversal to 1.3885.

Another trillion dollars for the American economy

Yesterday, the leading US stock indexes fell slightly, but in general they continue to be near their absolute highs and can update them any time. All three leading indexes, the S&P 500, Dow Jones, and NASDAQ Composite, maintain upward trends. We have already mentioned earlier why this is happening. First, the Fed continues to buy bonds and mortgage-backed securities from the open market, saturating it with liquidity. And all the cash immediately flows into the most profitable stocks that can provide profit to their investors in the future. Moreover, the profit is not even a dividend, but a profit due to a constant increase in value. The dividends of almost all American companies are already below the current inflation. Therefore, it is extremely difficult to make a profit from dividend payments in the near future. However, since investors do not have much choice, and stocks are the most common investment tool, it is the stock market that capital continues to flow.

At the same time, the US Senate agreed on a new package of assistance to the US economy. Previously, it appeared under the name "infrastructure package". It can be recalled that Joe Biden offered two stimulus packages for the American economy, each of about $2 trillion. As you can see, the final version of the first package is half as small. However, we have not yet seen the second package, which is the "social" one. The infrastructure package will be aimed at investing in roads, bridges, ports, the internet, and other facilities over the next 5-8 years. It is noteworthy that the source of the formation of this package is planned to be tax revenues, but not the attraction of loans. In other words, the US government will not climb into even greater debts to finance this $1 trillion package. Of course, we cannot judge where this money will come from. In America, they really like to live on credit, and the size of the public debt in the United States already exceeds the volume of GDP. Simply put, the States owe more money than their economy is worth. In fairness, it should be noted that about half of the debts are debts to themselves. Simply put, the American government owes American investors, various American funds, the Fed, and so on. For example, the United States owes China or Japan only $1 trillion, which is not so much. Thus, a default is unlikely to threaten Washington. Moreover, the money is spent on improving infrastructure, which will attract new investors to America even more in the future. The Fed can also print money in almost any volume without fear of hyperinflation, since the dollar remains the world's number one currency. One way or another, the US economy continues to accelerate and will continue to do this for many years to come.

Forecast for USD/JPY on August 4, 2021

USD/JPY

Yesterday, the yen continued strengthening against the dollar and overcame the target level of 109.20. The Marlin Oscillator is declining and the price is expected to move towards the target of 108.35, but for this the yen still needs support from external markets, which is now weakening.

Yesterday, the US stock index S&P 500 gained 0.80%, this morning the Chinese Shanghai Composite added 0.69%, only the Japanese Nikkei 225 lost 0.16%. The dollar index is in a neutral position. Consolidating above 109.20 may lead to growth to the nearest target of 109.80.

On the four-hour chart, the signal line of the Marlin oscillator continues to develop inside the wedge, the exit from which statistically predominates downward, but due to the reversal of the signal line from its lower border, a double convergence of the price with the oscillator has formed, and this is already a sign of an upward breakthrough.

The result is an uncertain situation, although rather an expectant one. The price movement in either direction can be fast and deep, so investors are in no hurry to get ahead of events. Together with the market, we will also wait.

Hot forecast for GBP/USD from August 5, 2021

Today, in terms of the economic calendar, a meeting of the Bank of England is scheduled, during which no changes in the parameters of monetary policy, including the interest rate, are expected.

Investors are most interested in comments during the meeting, which may lead to speculative manipulations in the market.

During the US session, weekly data on applications for unemployment benefits in the United States will be published, where they predict a reduction in their volume, which is considered a positive factor and may lead to a strengthening of dollar positions.

The GBP/USD pair, following the correction pattern from the psychological level of 1.4000, reached the support of 1.3900, where there was a slowdown and as a result, a rebound in the price.

The pivot point of 1.3900 was tested twice for strength by the quote, which indicates interest in sales from market participants.

The volatility of the currency pair at the beginning of the trading week is 61 points, which is considered a low indicator and may indicate the process of accumulation of trading.

Expectations and prospects

The downward development of the price according to the correction scenario is still relevant in the market. But in order to confirm the sellers' intentions, the quote needs to stay below the 1.3870 mark. In this case, it will open in the direction of 1.3825-1.3780.

The upward development will be relevant in the case of holding the price above the level of 1.4000 on the daily period. In this scenario, the correction course will end, and the upward cycle from the local minimum on July 20 will be prolonged to new levels.

A comprehensive indicator analysis signals a sale relative to the short-term and intraday periods, due to the price movement within the 1.3900 level.

EUR/USD and GBP/USD: Trading plan for novice traders for August 6, 2021

Economic calendar for August 6

Today, in terms of the economic calendar, a report by the United States Department of Labor will be published, which in the world of finance is considered one of the most important economic events.

Expectations for the report:

The unemployment rate in July may decrease from 5.9% to 5.7%

Outside agriculture, 870,000 new jobs can be created against 850,000 in the previous reporting period.

As you can see from the details of statistical expectations, experts predict a further recovery process, and this may lead to an increase in the US dollar if the forecast coincides.

The time of publication of the report is 12:30 UTC.

Trading plan - EURO/DOLLAR (August 6)

Market participants are working to depreciate the euro, which corresponds to the process of recovery of the downward movement in relation to the correction. Trading expectations consider the value of 1.1752 as a possible outlook for the downward trend. In this scenario, we will receive a full price recovery relative to the corrective move, as well as a signal to prolong the downward cycle from the beginning of June.

Trading Plan - POUND/DOLLAR (August 6)

The price movement along a sideways trajectory is still relevant in the market, but traders are already ready for changes since working within the established boundaries does not have high profits.

Traders will consider an upward movement if the price holds above the level of 1.4000, opening the way in the direction of the values 1.4100-1.4150.

A downward movement will be relevant if the price is kept below the level of 1.3885, opening the way in the direction of 1.3825-1.3800.

Analysis and trading recommendations for EUR/USD and GBP/USD on August 9

Analysis of transactions in the EUR / USD pair

A signal to sell appeared in the market on Friday, which provoked a 30-pip decline in EUR / USD. Apparently, the signal came when the MACD line was going down from zero, so traders were able to open short positions in the market.

The improved situation in the US labor market contributed to such a sharp downward movement, especially since good employment figures are evidence of strong economic recovery. Meanwhile, other data released last Friday, such as reports on industrial production in Germany and foreign trade balance in France, were not remarkable at all.

Today, the market will move depending on the reports scheduled to be published. In the morning, there will be data on the foreign trade balance in Germany and investor confidence from the Euro area, which are expected to post a decline. If this happens, demand for euro will continue to decrease. Then, later in the afternoon, the situation may exacerbate as Fed representatives will deliver speeches, which could provoke increased demand for dollar and accordingly, a further decline in EUR / USD.

For long positions:

Open a long position when euro reaches 1.1779 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1828. Demand will increase if the Euro area publishes good data on investor confidence. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

It is also possible to buy at 1.1741 and 1.1705, but the MACD indicator line must be in the oversold area in order to bring about a market reversal to 1.1741 and 1.1705.

For short positions:

Open a short position when euro reaches 1.1741 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1705. A decline will occur if the Federal Reserve hints at a future policy change. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

It is also possible to sell at 1.1779 and 1.1828, but the MACD line must be in the overbought area in order to provoke a market reversal to 1.1741.

Analysis of transactions in the GBP / USD pair

There were several market signals on Friday, but only some were successful. In fact, the first one, which was to sell, had to be ignored because it came when the MACD line was far away from zero, which significantly limited the downward potential of GBP / USD. Fortunately by afternoon, the indicator had moved down from zero, so the pair was able to decline by about 50 pips. And today, price has reached the target level, which is 1.3855.

Surprisingly, long-term prospects for bond purchases did not help pound, which cannot be said about the data on the US labor market, which exceeded all expectations. Meanwhile today, there are no macro statistics scheduled to be published, so pound will most likely undergo an upward correction. But later in the afternoon, the situation may change as Fed representatives will deliver speeches, which could provoke increased demand for dollar and accordingly, a decline in GBP / USD.

For long positions:

Open a long position when pound reaches 1.3881 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.3919 (thicker green line on the chart). GBP / USD may climb today since there are no macro statistics scheduled to be published. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

It is also possible to buy at 1.3854 and 1.3820, but the MACD line should be in the oversold area in order to set off a market reversal to 1.3881.

For short positions:

Open a short position when pound reaches 1.3854 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.3820. A decline could occur in the afternoon, during the speech of Fed representatives. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

It is also possible to sell at 1.3881 and 1.3919, but the MACD line should be in the overbought area in order to trigger a market reversal to 1.3854.

Trading plan for starters of EUR/USD and GBP/USD on August 11, 2021

August 11 economic calendar:

Today, the US inflation data will be released. The consumer price index is expected to decline from 5.4% to 5.3%. But at the same time, there is a forecast that inflation will remain at the level of 5.4%.

Taking into account expectations, dollar positions look quite good in the market.

Trading plan for EUR/USD on August 11:

Market participants are testing the strength of this year's base, but they are extremely cautious about selling positions. Traders will consider the next decline after the price is kept below the level of 1.1680, which may open the way towards 1.1620.

The scenario of a price rebound from the area of 1.1704 will become relevant if the quote is kept above the level of 1.1745.

Trading plan for GBP/USD on August 11:

The downward trend is still relevant, but if one hasn't worked with sell positions before, then it is logical to wait for the price to be kept below the level of 1.3800.

It is worth noting that there is currently a stagnation, so local buy positions may be opened if the price is kept above the level of 1.3845, opening the path towards 1.3865.

Simplified wave analysis and forecast for AUD/USD and USD/CHF, GOLD on August 12

AUD/USD

Analysis:

The direction of movement of the Australian dollar in the main pair is set by the bearish wave of February 25. The quotes have reached the upper limit of the strong zone of a large TF, along which a correction plane has been developing in the last three weeks.

Forecast:

Today, the pair's price movement is expected mainly horizontally, within the boundaries of the previously formed price corridor. An upward vector is likely further after the possible pressure on the support zone in the next session.

Potential reversal zones

Resistance:
- 0.7420/0.7450

Support:
- 0.7350/0.7320

Recommendations:

When making trade transactions on the Australian dollar market today, it is more reasonable to reduce the lot, trying not to go beyond the intraday. Sales are riskier and are not recommended.

USD/CHF

Analysis:

The direction of short-term fluctuations of the Swiss franc chart is set by the downward wave algorithm of June 18. A week ago, an ascending section started towards the main course. At the current moment, its wave level does not go beyond the correction.

Forecast:

Today, the price movement is likely to move to a sideways plane. At the European session, a decline in the support area is not excluded. The probability of a return to the bullish movement vector increases, with the price rising into the area of the resistance zone.

Potential reversal zones

Resistance:
- 0.9250/0.9280

Support:
- 0.9190/0.9160

Recommendations:

Trading in the conditions of the upcoming flat on the franc market today is possible only for supporters of short-term transactions. Purchases are more promising.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 14.88 points (0.04%) to a record 35,499.85 points. Standard & Poor's 500 gained 13.13 points (0.3%), rising to a record 4460.83 points. The Nasdaq Composite added 51.13 points (0.35%) to 14,816.26 points.

EBay Inc. yesterday rose 1.3%. The world's largest online auction in the second quarter of this year received profit and revenue above analysts' expectations, but reported a decrease in the number of active buyers, while the revenue forecast for the current quarter did not meet the expectations of experts.

The price of securities of the American Palantir Technologies Inc. jumped 11.4%. The big data solution provider increased its revenue by 49% in the second quarter of 2021, thanks to a significant increase in revenue from commercial orders in the United States.

Nio Inc. shares quoted in the USA. decreased by 3.4%. The Chinese electric vehicle maker cut its net loss by 45.4% in the second quarter, while the adjusted figure was better than forecast.

Investors are studying the statistics, trying to understand how they will affect the plans of the Federal Reserve System (FRS) to roll back asset repurchases.

In recent months, representatives of the Federal Reserve are increasingly speaking out in favor of the regulator beginning to roll back stimulus measures introduced to support the economy amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The US Central Bank may begin to roll back stimulus measures for the US economy by the end of this year, given the strength of the economic recovery, said the head of the Federal Reserve Bank (FRB) of San Francisco, Mary Daly.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Daily expressed confidence that the significant growth in economic activity of households and businesses will continue as people return to jobs and persist in high consumer spending, which will create conditions for adjusting monetary policy in the coming months.

Forecast for USD/JPY on August 16, 2021

USD/JPY

Unfortunately, the USD/JPY pair could not withstand external pressure and fell by almost 80 points on Friday as restrictive stops below 110.10 were triggered.

It passed the 109.80 target level and the 109.20 target is open. New stop losses are likely to accumulate below this level, and big players may be tempted to repeat Friday's success and push the price down to 108.35. And here the question arises - do the big players need it? The answer may be in the affirmative if the majority of investors expect an imminent collapse in the stock markets. But so far there is no such unequivocal sentiment in the business media. If investors still expect growth in the medium term (and companies' financial statements are good), then the pair may not reach the 109.20 target level to maintain market calm. Or the price will go down very slowly to the target level.

Consolidating above the resistance at 109.80 will bring back the rising sentiment, the price will try to once again go above the price channel line (110.60).

The price settled below the target level of 109.80 on the four-hour chart, the Marlin Oscillator outlined a reversal from the oversold zone. This could be an early sign of the dollar's intention to recover, or it could spend a few days in the 109.20/80 range.

Where will gold end up?

The price of gold stopped just below $ 1,800 per ounce after Monday's growth. Now, some analysts are warning of a new sell-off if the level of $ 1800 turns out to be too strong resistance.

After a sudden collapse at the beginning of last week, gold managed to recover well, and demand for it returned.

Many people think about the geopolitical outbreak in Afghanistan after the Taliban seized the country after the recent withdrawal of American troops.

Therefore, everyone is waiting for the speech of the Central Bank Governor Jerome Powell on Wednesday.

Gold's movement to the level of $ 1,800 or higher will be important not only from a technical point of view but will also determine its future price direction.

Another multinational investment bank is urging investors to abandon gold, predicting stronger economic growth and an appreciation of the US dollar next year.

Dominic Schneider, Head of Commodities and Asia Pacific Foreign Exchange at UBS Global Wealth Management CIO Office, said that gold could decline to $ 1,600 per ounce, while silver could fall to $ 22 per ounce.

However, not all analysts hold this opinion.

Goldman Sachs still expects gold to hit $ 2,000 an ounce by the end of the year as demand for the yellow metal rebounds.

According to Craig Erlam, senior market analyst at OANDA Europe, there are currently several supporting factors for gold, including a combination of a weak US dollar and low bond yields.

Gold is also receiving additional price support from the growing demand of central banks for the precious metal, with Brazil and India being the latest to increase their official purchases of gold. This provided a counteraction to speculative pressure on the precious metal. In turn, gold prices recovered to the range of $ 1,780 per ounce, which could serve as a catalyst for additional coverage of short positions from trend followers.

Analysis and trading recommendations for EUR/USD and GBP/USD on August 18

Analysis of transactions in the EUR / USD pair

Euro initially rose by 15 pips on Tuesday as traders managed to set up long positions, thanks to the signal to buy that appeared when the MACD line was at the oversold area.

Then, immediately after that, the price turned around and provoked a sell signal, but traders had to ignore it since the indicator was far from zero.

The reason why EUR / USD rose in the morning is the slight increase in EU employment levels. But by afternoon, the pair declined despite a sharp drop in US retail trade data. Euro even reached new local lows.

And today, a report on EU inflation will be released, which will most likely provoke another decline in the market provided that the figure comes out the same or worse as expected. Then, in the afternoon, the Fed will publish its minutes of the meeting, which many expect to contain similar clauses as the last discussions.

For long positions:

Open a long position when euro reaches 1.1732 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1772. EUR / USD will climb higher if the Euro area publishes a better than expected inflation report. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

It is also possible to buy at 1.1708 and 1.1670, but the MACD indicator line must be in the oversold area in order to bring about a market reversal to 1.1732 and 1.1772.

For short positions:

Open a short position when euro reaches 1.1708 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1670. A decline will occur in the event of poor data on UK inflation and strong Fed protocols. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

It is also possible to sell at 1.1732 and 1.1772, but the MACD line must be in the overbought area in order to provoke a market reversal to 1.1708.

Analysis of transactions in the GBP / USD pair

Pound fell by 25 pips yesterday as traders managed to set up short positions, thanks to the signal to sell that appeared when the MACD line was going down from zero. At the same time, there were no other market signals for the rest of the day.

The weak employment data that UK released was the main reason for the decline, followed by the US retail trade report and statements from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell. And most likely, this bearish sentiment will continue amid inflation statistics from UK. But if the indicator turns out to be better than expected, there may be an upward correction in the market. Then, in the afternoon, the Fed will publish its minutes of the meeting, which many expect to contain similar clauses as the last discussions.

For long positions:

Open a long position when pound reaches 1.3764 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.3812 (thicker green line on the chart). GBP / USD will trade higher if UK reports strong statistics on inflation. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

It is also possible to buy at 1.3731 and 1.3684, but the MACD line should be in the oversold area in order to set off a market reversal to 1.3764 and 1.3812.

For short positions:

Open a short position when pound reaches 1.3731 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.3684. A decline will occur if UK publishes weak inflationary indicators. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

It is also possible to sell at 1.3764 and 1.3812, but the MACD line should be in the overbought area in order to trigger a market reversal to 1.3731 and 1.3684.

Analysis and trading recommendations for EUR/USD and GBP/USD on August 19

Analysis of transactions in the EUR / USD pair

Euro rose by 20 pips on Wednesday as traders managed to set up long positions, thanks to the signal to buy that appeared when the MACD line was at the oversold area. But in the afternoon, demand for dollar increased, as the Fed protocol said the members are considering an early tapering in order to prevent the economy from overheating.

Today, there will be a report on the current account balance of ECB, which will not have a serious impact on the market if it does not diverge from the forecasts. Then, in the afternoon, US will release weekly data on jobless claims, which, if exceeds expectations, will put more pressure on EUR / USD.

For long positions:

Open a long position when euro reaches 1.1697 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1742. EUR / USD will climb higher if the Euro area publishes strong economic data. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

It is also possible to buy at 1.1665 and 1.1624, but the MACD indicator line must be in the oversold area in order to bring about a market reversal to 1.1697 and 1.1742.

For short positions:

Open a short position when euro reaches 1.1665 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1624. A decline will occur if the Euro area releases weak economic indicators and US publishes a strong labor market report. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

It is also possible to sell at 1.1697 and 1.1742, but the MACD line must be in the overbought area in order to provoke a market reversal to 1.1665.

Analysis of transactions in the GBP / USD pair

GBP / USD declined by 20 pips yesterday because traders took short positions amid a signal to sell in the market, which came after the pair became oversold. Earlier, the market signal was to buy, but pound did not grow even though the MACD line was moving up from zero.

The main reason for the slump was the weak data on UK inflation, followed by the Fed protocols that set off increased demand for dollar. Apparently, many members said the central bank may already cut measures in the coming months.

Today, there are no UK statistics scheduled to be released, so the market will most likely focus on the reports from US. If the figures on jobless claims turn out better than expected, pressure on EUR / USD will intensify.

For long positions:

Open a long position when pound reaches 1.3741 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.3812 (thicker green line on the chart). But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

It is also possible to buy at 1.3700 and 1.3638, but the MACD line should be in the oversold area in order to set off a market reversal to 1.3741 and 1.3812.

For short positions:

Open a short position when pound reaches 1.3700 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.3638. GBP / USD will decline further if US releases a strong labor market data. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

It is also possible to sell at 1.3741 and 1.3812, but the MACD line should be in the overbought area in order to trigger a market reversal to 1.3700 and 1.3638.

Analysis and trading recommendations for EUR/USD and GBP/USD on August 20

Analysis of transactions in the EUR / USD pair

EUR / USD declined by 20 and then 30 pips on Thursday as traders managed to set up short positions, thanks to the signals to sell that appeared when the MACD line was at the overbought area. The driver was the stable decrease in weekly US jobless claims, which provoked increased demand for dollar.

Today, there will be a report on German PPI, but it is unlikely to help euro regain its lost positions. At most, the movement will be horizontal, unless dollar bulls close their positions this weekend.

For long positions:

Open a long position when euro reaches 1.1697 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1733. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

It is also possible to buy at 1.1675 and 1.1644, but the MACD indicator line must be in the oversold area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1697 and 1.1733.

For short positions:

Open a short position when euro reaches 1.1675 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1644. A decline will occur if Germany releases a weak economic report. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

It is also possible to sell at 1.1697 and 1.1742, but the MACD line must be in the overbought area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1675.

Analysis of transactions in the GBP / USD pair

GBP / USD continued to decline yesterday even though there was a signal to buy that coincided with the MACD line being at the oversold area. This resulted in huge losses, especially since there were no other market signals for the rest of the day.

The main reason for the slump was the continued decrease in weekly jobless claims. And today, this bearish sentiment may continue if the data on UK retail sales turn out bad. But in the afternoon, there may be a slight correction in the market, as dollar bulls may close their positions since it is already the end of the week.

For long positions:

Open a long position when pound reaches 1.3645 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.3688 (thicker green line on the chart). But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

It is also possible to buy at 1.3618 and 1.3583, but the MACD line should be in the oversold area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.3645 and 1.3688.

For short positions:

Open a short position when pound reaches 1.3618 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.3583. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

It is also possible to sell at 1.3645 and 1.3688, but the MACD line should be in the overbought area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.3618 and 1.3583.

Hot forecast for EUR/USD on August 23, 2021

The need for correction is not just long overdue, but has even already begun last Friday. However, the process is extremely slow. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that this is a corrective movement. The uncertainty of the single European currency is caused by business activity indices. The fact is that the preliminary assessment should show a decrease in all indices without exception. For example, the production index should fall from 62.8 points to 62.2 points. The index of business activity in the service sector may fall from 59.8 points to 59.4 points. So, the composite index should decrease from 60.2 points to 59.8 points. Thus, even a slight decline in the single European currency is quite possible during the European session. It will be small for the simple reason that the single European currency is already seriously oversold, which means that its downward movement is extremely limited.

However, this does not mean that the correction is postponed indefinitely. American statistics are much more important, and it is precisely with these data that things will be much worse today than in the eurozone. And we are talking about the same preliminary estimates of business activity indices. Thus, the manufacturing index may decrease from 63.4 points to 63.0 points, while the index of business activity in the service sector from 59.9 points to 59.0 points. As a result of all this, the composite index should decrease from 59.9 points to 59.0 points. And due to the fact that American statistics have much more weight, the market will react to it noticeably more actively. Plus, the dollar is clearly overbought. This will be the final reason for the correction.

After updating the local minimum of 2021, the EUR/USD pair slowed down its downward course. As a result, there was a corrective movement, which led to the return of the quote above the previously passed level of 1.1700.

The RSI technical indicator confirms the correction move by crossing the 50 level from the bottom up.

The daily trading chart shows a downward cycle from the beginning of June, the scale of which leads to a change of trading interests.

Expectations and prospects:

The corrective move returned the quote in the area of the Fibonacci line 23.6-1.1720, where the possibility of completing the existing movement is being considered. If there is no reduction in the volume of long positions in the area of this level, then the subsequent Fibo level is located around the 1.1760 mark.

A comprehensive indicator analysis gives a buy signal based on the short-term period. At the same time, the intraday and medium-term periods signal a sale.

Trading Signal for XAU/USD for August 24 - 25, 2021

The daily chart of Gold shows that the metal is trading within a downtrend channel which has been extending since May 14. Now it would be close to start a trend change, but the price has triple resistance where the top of the channel, the 200 EMA and the 6/8 line of murray converge (1,812).

The gold market opened the week higher and XAU / USD rose from the level of 1,781, breaking the symmetrical triangle pattern (see the chart). Until the closure of the bullish candle on Monday at 1,804, this pattern could sustain momentum, so gold could rise to the zone of 1,812.

This bullish momentum of yesterday occurred due to the weakness of the USDX which fell from the high of 93.71 (8/8 of murray). This level was predicted by us as we had already indicated it in the previous analysis. Now we believe that the USDX could make a correction to the 61.8% of Fibonacci and it will enable a new bullish momentum of gold.

But first, gold should also make a technical correction, since it is showing overbought signs, facing extreme resistance at 1,812.

We believe that the zone between 1,812 and 1,806 represents strong resistance and gold could fall to the 5/8 murray line located at 1,781 because the 200 EMA is a strong barrier which could prevent a bullish rally.

On the contrary, if Gold breaks the key level of 1,812, the price will be free for a new bullish stage. So, the price could reach the area between 1,843 and 1,875, the level of 8/8 murray.

Our outlook for now remains bearish because we are confident in the price action patterns. We can also add the eagle indicator on 4-hour charts. As the indicator has reached the 95 level, this signals an imminent technical correction.

The reasonable trading idea is to sell at any level below 1,812 with targets at 1,781 and towards the pivot point of 4/8 Murray at 1,750. The eagle technical indicator, that measures the volume and the strength of the market, shows a signal of an imminent correction in the next few hours.

Trading tip for XAU/USD (Gold) for August 24 - 25, 2021

Sell below 1,812 (triple resistance), with take profit at 1,795 and 1,781 (5/8), stop loss above 1,818.

Analysis and trading recommendations for EUR/USD on August 25

Analysis of transactions in the EUR / USD pair

Euro rose by 20 pips on Tuesday, thanks to the signal to buy that coincided with the MACD line being at the oversold area. Sadly, there was no further growth because the indicator was far away from zero in the afternoon.

Surprisingly, the better-than-expected GDP data from Germany did not affect the market much yesterday. The speech of ECB member Isabel Schnabel was also practically ignored, as it did not concern monetary policy. But in the afternoon, euro's rally halted because of good data on US home sales.

Most likely, the bullish move will continue provided that upcoming reports from Germany exceed expectations. But if the figures decline, EUR / USD will drop in price as well. Then, the scenario could escalate in the afternoon if US releases strong data on orders for durable goods.

For long positions:

Open a long position when euro reaches 1.1754 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1796. EUR / USD may climb higher if data from Germany exceeds expectations. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

It is also possible to buy at 1.1733 and 1.1693, but the MACD indicator line must be in the oversold area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1754 and 1.1796.

For short positions:

Open a short position when euro reaches 1.1733 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1693. A decline will occur if Germany releases weak economic indicators and if the ECB takes a wait-and-see position on monetary policy. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

It is also possible to sell at 1.1754 and 1.1796, but the MACD line must be in the overbought area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1733.

Analysis and trading recommendations for EUR/USD on August 26

Analysis of transactions in the EUR / USD pair

Several market signals appeared in EUR / USD on Wednesday, but the first two had to be ignored because they came when the MACD line was far away from zero. Then, the next signal coincided with the indicator going to the overbought area, so traders were able to short euro by 20 pips. Following that was a signal to buy, which coincided with the MACD line being at the oversold area. This allowed traders to push the pair up also by 20 pips.

Euro was under slight pressure because of the economic reports released yesterday. The data from IFO was just as expected, while other indicators were worse than the forecasts.

There is a high chance that bearish pressure will continue today amid the ECB protocol and data on money supply. Reduced lending in the private sector could also provoke a decline, which may escalate if US releases a strong GDP report for the 2nd quarter. The speech of the Fed Chairman Jerome Powell at the Jackson Hole symposium will also be decisive to the EUR / USD pair.

For long positions:

Open a long position when euro reaches 1.1779 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1834. EUR / USD may climb higher if GDP data from France and the whole Euro area exceed expectations. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

It is also possible to buy at 1.1757 and 1.1708, but the MACD indicator line must be in the oversold area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1779 and 1.1834.

For short positions:

Open a short position when euro reaches 1.1757 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1708. A decline will occur if the Euro area releases weak economic indicators and if the ECB takes a wait-and-see position on monetary policy. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

It is also possible to sell at 1.1779 and 1.1834, but the MACD line must be in the overbought area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1757.

Trading Signal for USD/CAD for August 26 - 27, 2021: Buy above 1.2573 (EMA 200)

On August 20, the USD / CAD pair peaked at 1.2948, the highest level since December 2020. Since that day, the pair has been making a correction and has finally reached the 200 EMA zone located at 1.2573.

In a few days, the loonie has strengthened by more than 350 pips. The rally of oil prices of more than 600 pips from the low of 62.00 has given strength to the USD / CAD pair. Now it could be in a zone of a probable technical rebound.

Investors are cautious and prefer to stay on the sidelines ahead of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell's speech at the Jackson Hole Symposium.

This event is an important factor for the currency market. So, it could be limiting the strength of the Canadian dollar, justifying some caution before positioning for any further movement.

According to technical analysis, traders have the same sentiment on USD/CAD as we observe that the pair has found some support near the key support of the 200 EMA and has been bouncing above this level since yesterday.

The 21 SMA located at 1.2658 is exerting some downward pressure. Therefore, a pullback towards this level will be a good opportunity to sell. A little higher is the 4/8 line of murray that has now become strong resistance.

On the other hand, a break below 1.2573 (200 EMA) will open the possibility of a new bearish sequence that could reach the 2/8 murray support level located at 1.2451.

The key point until Friday is to wait for a consolidation above the 200 EMA. Whenever there is a bounce at this level, it will be a good opportunity to buy with targets at 1.2695 and up to 1.2817.

Buy above EMA 200 at 1.2573 with take profit at 1.2695 (4/8) and stop loss below 1.2538.

Sell if the price makes a pullback 1.2695 (4/8) with take profit at 1.2630 and 1.2573 (3/8), stop loss above 1.2730.

Analysis and trading recommendations for EUR/USD on August 27

Analysis of transactions in the EUR / USD pair

There was a signal to buy in EUR / USD in the morning, but traders had to ignore it because it came when the MACD line was at the overbought area. This resulted to euro dropping by another 20 pips, which, in turn, formed a signal to sell in the market. But since the MACD indicator was far away from zero, the pair did not go down much. Following that was another signal to buy, but it also did not result in a large movement.

Obviously, the minutes of the July ECB meeting and data on money supply and lending did not affect the market much.

And today, since there are no important macro statistics scheduled to be released, the market will most likely remain calm in the morning. But by afternoon Fed Chairman Jerome Powell will make a speech, which will be decisive to the EUR / USD pair. Data on German import price index and US income will most likely be ignored.

For long positions:

Open a long position when euro reaches 1.1770 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1800 (thicker green line on the chart). EUR / USD trade upwards if the Federal Reserve does not hint on future policy changes. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

It is also possible to buy at 1.1750 and 1.1708, but the MACD line should be in the oversold area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1770 and 1.1800.

For short positions:

Open a short position when euro reaches 1.1750 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1708. A decline will occur if US releases strong economic reports and if the Fed indicates potential changes in the monetary policy. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

It is also possible to sell at 1.1770 and 1.1800, but the MACD line should be in the overbought area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1750.

Forecast for EUR/USD on August 30, 2021

Bankers' symposium in Jackson Hole ended on Saturday. The much anticipated speech of Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell only confirmed the general line of the central bank, regardless of the intentions of the hawks (Bostic, Kaplan, Harker, Mester) to announce plans to start phasing out QE in September, to begin this phase out in December, and to raise the rate at the earliest. Next year. The main thing that investors took from Powell's speech was a signal of a later rate hike than other central banks, including the European Central Bank, would do. Powell paid a lot of attention to inflation, confirming the thesis about its temporary surge, but, briefly paying tribute to the good growth of the labor market, noted that the pandemic could weaken this growth, which, in our opinion, gives room for maneuver. We suspect that labor data released on September 3 will already come out worse than forecast (unemployment is expected to decrease from 5.4% to 5.2% and non-farm in 728,000).

The price goes above the balance indicator line on the daily scale chart, the Marlin oscillator is growing, the target at 1.1835/47 remains, overcoming this range opens the second target at 1.1920.

The growth continues as usual on the four-hour chart: the price is above the indicator lines, Marlin turned up after the discharge (correction) on the 26th.

Forecast for GBP/USD on August 30, 2021

The pound, after creating a local low on August 20, has formed a new upward price channel, starting from the March 2020 low. The Marlin oscillator has moved into the zone of positive values, into the zone of an upward trend, now we expect the price to continue to rise to the nearest embedded line of the price channel around 1.3858 (the level coincides with the lows of March 2, April 27). The closest resistance is the MACD indicator line at 1.3798, which coincides with May 2021's low.

The price settled above the indicator lines on the H4 chart, above the intermediate target level of 1.3747, gathering strength before the attack at 1.3798.

Trading plan for starters of EUR/USD and GBP/USD on August 31, 2021

August 31 economic calendar:

Today, the UK lending market data will be published at 8:30 Universal time, where not everything is so bad according to forecasts. The main event today is considered to be the publication of preliminary inflation estimates in Europe, which could grow from 2.2% to 2.7%. Such an intense rise in consumer prices scares investors since this situation requires immediate action from the European Central Bank, which is still doing nothing. At the same time, the regulator does not even give hints about a change in the course of monetary policy, which puts even more pressure on the market due to complete uncertainty.

In such a situation, speculators appear, where the growth of inflation can be won back by the market both by a local decrease and by growth in the value of the euro. This does not exclude local surges in the market.

From the point of view of fundamental analysis, inflation growth is a positive signal for the national currency, but when consumer prices rise faster than forecast, this is not considered the best signal.

Trading plan for EUR/USD on August 31:

The ascending inertial move has already led to the fact that the euro is overbought in the market.

In this situation, two possible scenarios can be considered:

The first one comes from the downward cycle from the beginning of June, where the current correction is already at the limit of possibilities. This can lead to the early completion of growth and the resumption of the downward cycle. This forecast will be confirmed if the price is held below 1.1800, which will open the way towards 1.1760-1.1700.

The second scenario considers an inertial move, where speculators are not stopped by an overbought signal. This leads to a movement towards the level of 1.1900.

Trading plan for GBP/USD on August 31:

The resistance level of 1.3800 is still putting pressure on buyers, which may lead to a reduction in the volume of long positions. If the price rebounds from the resistance level, a movement may occur towards the level of 1.3735.

An alternative scenario of the market development will arise if the price is kept above the level of 1.3830. This could jeopardize the downside cycle from 1.4000.

Analysis and trading recommendations for EUR/USD and GBP/USD on September 1

Analysis of transactions in the EUR / USD pair

There was a signal to buy in EUR / USD on Tuesday, but it had to be ignored because the MACD line was far away from zero. After some time though the indicator hit the overbought area, so bearish traders were able to open short positions. This provoked a 30-pip decline in the market. There were no other signals for the rest of the day.

Surprisingly, even though the data released yesterday exceeded expectations, EUR / USD did not undergo large movements. Only the report on US consumer confidence led to a slight surge in volatility.

Another report will come from Germany and the Euro area today, but it is unlikely to shake the market. Then, in the afternoon, there will be data on US manufacturing and employment, followed by speeches from Fed representatives.

For long positions:

Open a long position when euro reaches 1.1818 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1849 (thicker green line on the chart). EUR / USD trade upwards if economic data from Germany and the Euro area exceed expectations. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

It is also possible to buy at 1.1796 and 1.1765, but the MACD line should be in the oversold area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1818 and 1.1849.

For short positions:

Open a short position when euro reaches 1.1796 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1765. A decline will occur if the Euro area reports weak manufacturing activity and employment. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

It is also possible to sell at 1.1818 and 1.1849, but the MACD line should be in the overbought area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1796.

Analysis of transactions in the GBP / USD pair

There were several market signals in GBP / USD yesterday. But the first one, which was to sell, had to be ignored because the MACD line was at the oversold area. Following that was a signal to buy, which successfully provoked a 20-pip increase. Then, another signal to sell appeared in the afternoon and this time, it finally coincided with the MACD line moving down from zero. As a result, bearish traders were able to open short positions, which led to a 30-pip decline in the market.

Surprisingly, UK data on lending and money supply did not affect the market in any way, and only the report on US consumer confidence led to a surge in volatility.

Today, an interesting report on UK manufacturing activity is coming out, which may put even more pressure on pound. Then, in the afternoon, there will be data on US manufacturing and employment, followed by speeches from Fed representatives.

For long positions:

Open a long position when pound reaches 1.3761 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.3810 (thicker green line on the chart). The pair will continue moving up if there are strong PMI reports. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

It is also possible to buy at 1.3727 and 1.3679, but the MACD line should be in the oversold area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.3761 and 1.3810.

For short positions:

Open a short position when pound reaches 1.3727 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.3679. A decline will occur if UK releases very weak data on manufacturing activity. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

The pair could also be sold at 1.3761 and 1.3810, but the MACD line should be in the overbought area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.3727 and 1.3679.

Trading plan for starters of EUR/USD and GBP/USD on September 2, 2021

Sept 2 economic calendar:

The weekly data on applications for US unemployment benefits will be released at 12:30 Universal time today, where they predict a decrease in their volume. This may support the US dollar if expectations coincide.

Details of statistics:

The volume of initial applications for benefits may fall from 353 thousand to 345 thousand.

The volume of repeated applications for benefits may fall from 2 862 thousand to 2 775 thousand.

Therefore, a decline in the number of applications for benefits may lead to a strengthening of the national currency – USD.

Trading plan for EUR/USD on September 2:

Euro's high overbought level does not stop speculators, who continue to form a correction from this year's base.

In this case, one should trade on both sides.

Sell positions come from a downtrend that is relevant in the market. In this case, the first entry into the market may occur if the price pulls back from the correction maximum with a target of 1.1800.

Sell positions are considered to maintain an inertial course in the market, when speculators ignore the overbought status. In this case, the maximum possible growth of the euro is the level of 1.1900.

Trading plan for GBP/USD on September 2:

It can be assumed here that the sideways movement within the range of 1.3730/1.380 will remain on the market for some time. Now, it is worth preparing for the upcoming acceleration, trading by the method of breaking through a particular border.

Buy positions can be considered if the price is kept above the level of 1.3800.

Sell positions can be considered if the price is kept below the level of 1.3725.
