Analysis and trading recommendations for GBP/USD on October 11

GBP/USD rallied, thanks to the buy signal that coincided with the MACD line being at the oversold area. Such allowed bullish traders to take long positions, provoking a 60-pip increase in the pair. No other signal appeared for the rest of the day.

It was the latest Bank of England minutes that pushed pound up, coupled with weak data on the US labor market.

Today, a report on UK GDP will be published, which may push pound above local highs. But by afternoon, the market will turn calm amid a US holiday. Many markets will close by then.

For long positions:

Open a long position when pound reaches 1.3658 (green line on the chart) and take profit at 1.3727 (thicker green line on the chart). Price may rise in the morning as there are no UK statistics scheduled for release today. 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 1.3607, but the MACD line should be in the oversold area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.3658 and 1.3727.

For short positions:

Open a short position when pound reaches 1.3607 (red line on the chart) and take profit at 1.3535. But there is little chance that the price will decline, especially since the Bank of England seems to be set on raising interest rates as soon as possible. Nevertheless, 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 1.3658, but the MACD line should be in the overbought area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.3607 and 1.3535.

US indicators close lower

On Monday, US indicators closed the trading session with a decline. The Dow Jones Industrial Average slipped 0.72%, the S&P 500 was down 0.69% and the NASDAQ Composite dipped 0.64%.

A number of factors contributed to the fall in US indicators. First, investors are concerned about rising oil prices. November WTI crude futures rose 1.5% to $80.52 a barrel and December Brent crude was up to $83.65 a barrel. Oil prices have been boosted by a worldwide gas shortage. In turn, this has benefited oil and gas companies' share prices.

Another reason for traders' concern is the strong rise in inflation combined with low economic growth. Inflation is rising at a higher rate than expected due to supply problems, lack of human resources, and rapidly increasing energy costs. At the same time, the economic recovery has not been as rapid as expected. The Goldman Sachs has changed its GDP growth forecasts for the final quarter of this year due to lower consumer spending and impending cuts in government economic assistance measures.

In addition, corporate reports will be released soon and may clarify how companies are coping with price increases. Indicators of expected income will show how top corporate executives assess the future growth and increase in consumer spending. Delta Air Lines, Domino's Pizza, Bank of America Corp., Citigroup Inc., The Goldman Sachs Group Inc., and JPMorgan Chase will release their reports as early as this week.

Experts are optimistic because of the significant amount of savings that citizens managed to accumulate during the pandemic, as it is not known how the pandemic will unfold during the winter.

Materials stocks were the best performing sector on the day, underpinned by a 3.2% jump in Freeport-McMoran Copper&Gold Inc as copper prices continued to climb.

Meanwhile, JPMorgan fell 2.1% and Amazon dropped 1.3%. Visa was down 2.2% and Mastercard also fell 2.2% among the biggest drags on the S&P 500. The shares of Southwest Airlines Co. dropped 4.2% as the company canceled a third of its flights.

Analysts expect a 29.6% year-on-year increase in profit for S&P 500 companies in the third quarter, according to experts' forecasts. It should be noted that this indicator doubled in the second quarter.

Forecast for EUR/USD on October 13, 2021

The euro fell as expected on Tuesday, but at the same time strengthened the technical prerequisites for an upward reversal - this is the formation of a double convergence of the price with the Marlin Oscillator and a wedge-shaped price structure, from which, according to statistics, there will be a 70% exit to the upside. Such a signal is when the price breaks through the resistance of 1.1570, from which the price turned down yesterday. The growth target is the MACD line around 1.1678.

On the four-hour chart, the price is trying to break above the MACD line. The same intention - to move into the growth zone, is shown by the Marlin Oscillator. Exit of the price above 1.1570 will automatically mean that the price will exit above the balance line (red indicator), which will fulfill all the technical conditions for the euro to rise in the short term, that is, until the first specified target (1.1678).

Trading plan for starters of EUR/USD and GBP/USD on October 19, 2021

October 19 economic calendar:

Today, American data on the real estate market is expected to be published, where it is predicted that the construction of new homes, as well as the number of construction permits issued, will decrease in September. This is not the best signal for the US real estate market.

Trading plan for EUR/USD on October 19:

There was a high demand for long positions in the euro during the start of the Asian session. This led to an update of the local high (1.1640) of October 4. It should be noted that holding the price above the level of 1.1660 will most likely lead to a subsequent growth towards the level of 1.1700.

Otherwise, the quote will return to the range of 1.1620.

Trading plan for GBP/USD on October 19:

It can be assumed that the subsequent resistance level is around 1.3800/1.3830. It is possible to reduce the volume of long positions within these levels, which will lead to another attempt to end the correction.

Analysis and trading recommendations for EUR/USD on October 20

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. Shortly after that a signal to sell appeared, and this time it provoked a large drop in the pair because traders took short positions. Then, another sell signal emerged, but it had to be ignored because the MACD line was far from zero. Afterwards, a buy signal appeared and it coincided with the MACD line being at the oversold area.

Euro rallied yesterday because of the statements from ECB members Frank Elderson and Fabio Panetta. But the situation turned around in the afternoon as Fed members Mary Daly and Michelle Bowman addressed US inflation, which attracted investor interest on dollar.

Today, a lot of macro statistics are scheduled to come out, and these are EU data on CPI and ECB balance of payments, which, if exceeded expectations, could provoke another rally in EUR / USD. Another speech from ECB member Frank Elderson will also commence, followed by statements from Fed members Charles Evans, Raphael Bostic and Randal Quarles.

For long positions:

Open a long position when euro reaches 1.1656 (green line on the chart) and take profit at 1.1696. Price will increase if EU inflation data comes out strong.

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 1.1635, but the MACD line should be in the oversold area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1656 and 1.1696.

For short positions:

Open a short position when euro reaches 1.1635 (red line on the chart) and take profit at 1.1594. Pressure may return if there are weak EU statistics and if the Fed makes statements that are in favor of dollar.

Before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it. Euro could also be sold at 1.1656, but the MACD line should be in the overbought area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1635 and 1.1594.

Forecast for USD/JPY on October 21, 2021

The yen has been trading at large daily volumes since the beginning of the week, however, the quotes have been changing all this time in narrow ranges at the technical level of 114.10. The Marlin Oscillator has been moving down since the beginning of the week. Taken together, this means that big players are closing positions and the decline to the first support at 113.12. Consolidation below the level may strengthen the downward correction. A full reversal will take place after the price consolidates below the MACD indicator line at 111.40. After the correction to 113.12, the growth may continue to the range of 115.80-116.15. Unless, of course, the stock markets fail. US indices closed mixed yesterday.

On the four-hour scale, the price approached the MACD line, the Marlin oscillator was already in the downtrend zone. Accordingly, if the price settles below the level of 114.10, which coincides with the support of the MACD line, we expect the price to move towards the target at 113.12 - to the embedded monthly-scale price channel line.
