"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

25.09.2014

Fundamental analysis

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

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

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




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The single currency remained under pressure after the latest data showed that the private sector business activity has grown slowly in September, raising expectations of additional stimulus by the European Central Bank.

The EUR corrective increase to the level of 1.2905 was followed by a short-term bounce rate down. The price has continued to decline without volumes.

The price is finding the support at 1.2730. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2850, the next one is at 1.2930.

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

Trading recommendations

The pair can fall to the support level of 1.2790. After breaking 1.2790 the pair may go to 1.2730.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The sterling slightly fell down. Earlier the pound fully compensated its losses.

Optimistic prospects for the Bank of England future actions give a support to the pound rate, as well as the political situation stabilization after the referendum on Scottish independence.

The British pound tried to rise to the downward trend line of 1.6440. The short-term increase was followed by the lower volumes and the price was immediately falling down.

The price is finding the first support at 1.6340, the next one is at 1.6270. The price is finding the resistance at 1.6440.

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 horizontal movement and form a “Dead cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

We suppose the pair will go to 1.6340 first. Having overcome the first target the price might go downwards to 1.6270, 1.6180.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The yen gained a support after the Prime Minister Abe reportedly said that the weak yen had both positive and negative consequences and he intended to monitor closely the weak yen impact to the regional economy, as well as small and medium enterprises.

The sellers tried to break below the support level of 108.50. The short-term testing led to the price upwards rebound.

The price is finding the support at 108.50, the next one is at 108.00. The price is finding the first resistance at 109.00, the next one is at 109.40.

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 and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement and form a “Dead cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

We believe the growth will be continued now. The first target is the level of 109.40.



Franc (CHF)

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

26.09.2014

Fundamental analysis

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

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

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




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The European Central Bank president Mario Draghi promised to keep the soft policy until the Central Bank would not be able to raise the inflation to a certain optimal level by about 2 %.

The US and Europe macroeconomic statistics demonstrate the difference in the regional growth prospects.

The rebound from the downtrend line 1.2930 was followed by the euro active decrease against the American dollar. The breakthrough occurred at the level of 1.2790 on the low volumes.

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

There is a confirmed and a 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 downward movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

The trend is directed down side. We expect the level of 1.2670 testing soon.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The British Pound remains under pressure, despite the attempts to recover. Meanwhile, the increase above 1.6440 can not be excluded against the empty calendar of British events. Therefore, the investors pay their attention to the American statistics which forms the course dynamics.

The rates consolidation formed below the trend line at 1.6340 led to the downward price rebound. In the short term we expect the level of 1.6270 breakthrough, the lower boundary of the upward channel.

The price is finding the first support at 1.6270, the next one is at 1.6180. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6340, the next one is at 1.6440.

The price is in the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a horizontal movement and the Kijun-sen shows a downward movement and form a “Dead cross”.

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

Trading recommendations

We expect the 1.6270 line break that will open the way to 1.6180.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The yen attempts to recover its losses. The US dollar rose slightly against the yen after Mr. Abe, the Japanese Prime Minister, aggressively commented the weaker yen negative impact to the regional economy. The US home sales recent disappointing data in the secondary market contributed to the recent correction.

The buyers tested for strength the strong resistance level of 109.00. From this level it formed a downward correction. The corrective price decline was stopped by the rising trend line at 108.50.

The price is finding the first support at 108.50, the next one is at 108.00. The price is finding the first resistance at 109.00, the next one is at 109.40.

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 an upward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a downward movement and form a “Golden cross”. 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

The potential growth targets are the resistance levels: 109.40, 110.00.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The Swiss franc fell against the dollar. The dollar had a surprisingly strong data about the state of the US housing market. In result the Fed raising interest rates will be likely increased in the nearest future.

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 strong buy signal. The price above in the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show an upward movement. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

29.09.2014

Fundamental analysis

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

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

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




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The EUR/USD remains under the sellers’ pressure. Many investors have already achieved their goals, so the consolidation is possible from these levels. A further decrease is also possible, but it requires a strong driver. While the European Central Bank (ECB) does not apply more drastic measures, further reduction is delayed.

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 under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a downward movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

We recommend going short with the first target – 1.2670, the next one is 1.2600.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The GBP/USD fell at the end of the last week. Before this the Bank of England Governor Mark Carney made it clear that there was a high likelihood for raising interest rates in the foreseeable future that deterred from the further pound/dollar decrease and contributed to the pair recovery to 1.6340. Nevertheless, it should be noted that the prospects of interest rates rise will not have a supportive effect on the former British currency that should alert the bulls for it.

The price is finding the first support at 1.6180, the next one is at 1.6100. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6270, the next one is at 1.6340.

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 shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

The price is directed down. We advise to long positions with the first target – 1.6100, the next one is 1.6030.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The current exchange rate US Dollar rose to Japanese yen after the Japan Minister of Welfare speech, the government does not abandon the pension fund reform plans.

The yen strengthened after the latest statement by the Japan Minister of Health regarding the lack of haste in the pension fund reforms, which could lead to the number of assets increase which would be possible to invest.

The price is finding the first support at 109.00, the next one is at 108.50. The price is finding the first resistance at 109.40, the next one is at 110.00.

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 and the Kijun-sen show an upward movement and form a “Golden cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

We recommend going long with the target – 110.00.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

After insignificant correction the franc continues to consolidate after the achieved fresh lows against the US dollar.

The dollar reached a four-year high after Goldman Sachs Group Inc, Morgan Stanley and Bank of America Corp. announced further US dollar rise due to the possible Fed interest rates growth in the middle of the next year against the monetary policy preservation by major central banks.

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

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

30.09.2014

Fundamental analysis

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

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

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




Euro (EUR)

General overview

The euro weakened by 0.1 % to 1.2670, before falling to nearly two-year low. The ECB meeting will take place on Thursday, after which we do not expect important news. The United States will publish an labor report on Friday, as it is expected, it will give the Fed an opportunity for the early interest rates hike.

The euro/dollar is traded in the descending channel direction where the price has been trading for the second month in a row. The support level of 1.2730 was broken down. There are no trade obstacles for bears.

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 under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a downward movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

The trend is a directed downwards. We expect the level of 1.2600 testing soon.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The pound remained under pressure. The Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said that the time for the interest rates rise was getting closer and also noted that the date had not yet specified as it depended on the economic data.

There was the support level of 1.6270 breakthrough that confirms the downward trend which will now play the resistance role. Besides the breakthrough, the bears returned the price to the downward trend line, thus opening the way to the current month lows - the levels of 1.6100, 1.6030.

The price is finding the first support at 1.6180, the next one is at 1.6100. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6270, the next one is at 1.6340.

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.

Yen (JPY)

General overview

The yen is again in decline amid the speculations that the Japanese government will continue to take up the measures along with the reforms to the Japan pension fund, whose total assets are $1.2 trillion.

The increase volumes remain in the growth area. Consequently, the buyers remain dominant players in this trading instrument. Additionally, the trade is in the upward direction.

The price is finding the first support at 109.00, the next one is at 108.50. The price is finding the first resistance at 109.40, the next one is at 110.00.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

01.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

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

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

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




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The euro/dollar remains under pressure against the dollar position. The US consumption expenditure rose in August, supporting the optimistic forecasts for the American economy. The American two-year bond yield approached the maximum level by 0.6 % from May 2011.

The price consolidated below the resistance level of 1.2730 and then it fell down to the support level of 1.2600.

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

There is a 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 downward movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

We believe the decrease will be continued now. The first target is the level 1.2500. We do not exclude the growth to 1.2730.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The British pound partly compensated its losses incurred earlier against the dollar after the UK positive economic data publication. The August consumer lending amounted to £0.898 billion that exceeded the forecasts, but turned out to be worse than the July values total 1.108 billion.

The British pound is correcting upward at the low volumes. The price movement priority direction is a downtrend.

The price is finding the first support at 1.6180, the next one is at 1.6100. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6270, the next one is at 1.6340.

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 consolidating.

Trading recommendations

After the trend line 1.6270 breakthrough down the way to the support 1.6180 will be opened.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The USD/JPY reached six-year maximum and continued its growth. One can hardly expect a significant dollar weakening in anticipation of the United States Friday employment report, the Wednesday Tankan report by the Bank of Japan and a decision on the EU interest rates that will be taken on Thursday.

Previously, the buyers could break above the resistance level of 109.40, which acts as a support. The growth is not supported by the trade volume.

The price is finding the first support at 109.40, the next one is at 109.00. The price is finding the resistance at 110.00.

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 and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

We believe the growth will be continued now. The first target is the level 110.00.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

After a minor consolidation the dollar /frank sharply rose. The head of the Swiss National Bank Thomas Jordan said that the central bank would continue to defend the level of 1.20 francs per euro. Also, the bank would be ready to take immediate actions and to use the additional measures if it was necessary.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9560, the next one is at 0.9500. The price is finding the resistance at 0.9620.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

02.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

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

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

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




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The euro fell by 0.11 %, losing 3.82 % in September, which has been the worst result for more than two years. Euro Area annual inflation rate fell to 0.3 percent in September from 0.4 percent in August.

The downward trend, supported by trade volumes, is still relevant.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

03.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

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

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

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




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

This week main event was the ECB meeting results announcement. All market participants' attention was focused on the press conference by the ECB President Mario Draghi.

The latest CPI index release showed the inflationary pressure reduction in the euro area to 0.3% and now the investors are looking forward to the further measures being implemented, directed to prevent the deflation threat.

It is planned the EUR/USD corrective growth rate. The bullish views are getting more popular.

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

There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a upward movement and the Kijun-sen shows 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 level of 1.2730 retest may lead to the price rebound down. We do not exclude the fall to 1.2600. The way to the mark 1.2500 will be opened after this breakthrough.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The British pound is under pressure this week amid the UK weak macroeconomic statistics. The September PMI construction sector index can also be negative, due to lower activity in the mortgage market.

The tone is negative in the market and the pair broke downwards the support level of 1.6180.

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

Trading recommendations

After the trend line 1.6100 breakthrough down the way to the support 1.6030 will be opened.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The US and Japan stock markets looks very bearish which is a negative factor for the pair. According to ADP, the change in the US private sector population employment amounted to 213K in September, against the expected 210K.

The Markit manufacturing PMI amounted to 57.5 in September against the expected 58.5, and the ISM manufacturing PMI amounted to 56.6 in September against the expected 58.5.

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

Trading recommendations

The pair can grow to the resistance level of 109.40. After breaking 109.40 the buyers may go to 110.00.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The Swiss franc strengthened against the dollar. There are rumors about the Swiss National Bank intervention (SNB).

In September 2011, the SNB set a lower limit for the EUR/CHF at the level of 1.2000 with a view to prevent excessive franc appreciation amid the strengthening economic crisis in the Eurozone.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9500, the next one is at 0.9430. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9560, the next one is at 0.9620.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

06.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

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

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

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




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The euro has started to behave volatile after the European Central Bank (ECB) President Mario Draghi started the conference in Naples, Italy. The ECB left interest rates at the record low level, as many traders had expected. The refinancing rate was maintained at the level of 0.05% and the deposit rates remained unchanged at the level with minus of 0.2%.

The euro sharply fell at the end of the trades. Earlier the trades were within the EUR/USD upward correction. Bulls have raised the price on the high volume, bringing it closer to the strong resistance level of 1.2740. The pair fell to a new low at the support level of 1. 2500.

The price is finding the first support at 1.2500, the next one is at 1.2400. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2600, the next one is at 1.2670.

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

Trading recommendations

We believe the decrease will be continued now. The first target is the level 1.2400.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The pound continued its decline and set a new three weeks low, despite the strong data about the Britain construction sector. The UK construction sector business activity index exceeded forecasts in September and increased up to 64.2, while it had expected the rise to 63.5. However, the pound fell after the Broadbent’s statement, the Bank of England representative that the UK is not still ready to raise the interest rates.

The British pound continues to stay in the downward channel. The bears have broken the support level of 1.6030 and were fixed below this level.

The price is finding the first support at 1.5950, the next one is at 1.5870. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6030, the next one is at 1.6100.

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 shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows 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

We expect the 1.5950 line break that will open the way for the sellers to 1.5870.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The Japanese yen continued its decline after its rise provoked by the Finance vice minister Nobuhide Minorikava stated that the weak currency was affected for the companies, forcing up energy costs.

The Japanese yen strengthened against the dollar. Amid the high volumes sellers tried to break through the support level of 108.00. But such a breakthrough has not been successful and the price bounced upward.

The price is finding the first support at 109.40, the next one is at 109.00. The price is finding the first resistance at 110.00, the next one is at 110.60.

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

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

07.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

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

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

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




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

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

The euro looked very bearish, breaking the support level of 1.2600 last week. The level breakdown has occurred amid the increased volume. Then the pair bounced upward from the support level of 1.2500.

The price is finding the first support at 1.2500, the next one is at 1.2400. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2600, the next one is at 1.2670.

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 shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows 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

We expect a flat. The downward bounce potential targets are 1.2500, 1.2400.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The sterling tries to grow. The British pound was also under pressure from the US dollar last week and it is worth noting that the "cable" was sold more actively than the euro. Obviously, the investors started to doubt the fact that the Bank of England would start to tighten its policy in a short-term.

The downward trend stopped at the level of 1.5950.

The price is finding the first support at 1.5950, the next one is at 1.5870. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6030, the next one is at 1.6100.

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 shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows 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 correcting.

Trading recommendations

The approach to the levels of 1.6050 or 1.6100 may lead to the price rebound down. The potential rebound targets are the levels of support 1.5950, 1.5870.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The US dollar stopped its growth and fell against the yen. Earlier it marked the new yearly highs amid the Fed and BoJ monetary policies increase expectations and the Bank of Japan governor Mr. Kuroda's readiness to take the necessary measures to achieve the inflation target of 2%.

The buyers have managed to return the price into the rising channel, breaking up the resistance level of 109.40. The breakthrough has occurred amid the high volume. Then the price decreased and tested the level of 109.00.

The price is finding the first support at 109.00, the next one is at 108.50. The price is finding the first resistance at 109.40, the next one is at 110.00.

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

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

Trading recommendations

After consolidating above the level of 109.00 the price will bounce upward to the level of 110.00. After the level of 110.00 breakthrough upward the way to the resistance level of 110.60 will be opened.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The American dollar is decreasing, against which the Swiss currency begins to strengthen.The dollar index reached a 4-year high after the US solid labor market report earlier that confirmed the world's largest economy recovery continuation.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9560. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9680, the next one is at 0.9750.

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 horizontal 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 advise to long with the first target - 0.9680. When the pair consolidates above the first target, we can open deals to the level of 0.9750.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

08.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

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

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

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




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The single European currency has grown against the US dollar and started a consolidation. The technical levels have supported the euro/dollar and, in fact, the pair returned to its positions which were lost earlier.

The Germany industrial orders sharply fell in August. The PMI industrial sector grew to the lifting area in September.

The pair EUR/USD is correcting to the downward trend line of 1.2700.

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

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

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

Trading recommendations

The approach to the support levels 1.2600 or 1.2500 may lead to the price rebound upward.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The British pound has grown against the dollar. The reason for such increased pound interest was the strong technical levels presented by the strong support as the UK news had no important messages.

We expect the industrial production indices for August. According to the forecasts, there will be good results that can keep the pound interest at the high level. The pair GBP/USD is testing the resistance level of 1.6100.

The price is finding the first support at 1.6030, the next one is at 1.5950. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6100, the next one is at 1.6180.

Trading recommendations

The downward bounce potential target is 1.5950.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The Japanese yen started to recover immediately before the next Bank of Japan meeting outcome.

The Japan's economy continued to recover at a moderate temps; however, the definite manufacturing sector is due to the sales tax increase.

The Bank of Japan has lowered the industrial output; the segment weakness is partially due to reserve structure changes.

The pair USD/JPY is correcting to the strong support level of 108.00.

The price is finding the first support at 108.00, the next one is at 107.20. The price is finding the first resistance at 108.50, the next one is at 109.40.

Trading recommendations

The potential growth targets are the resistance levels: 109.00, 109.40.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The franc continues its consolidation after the minor correction near the reached lows against the US dollar. We expect the USA consumer credit volume data for August.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9560, the next one is at 0.9500. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9680.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

09.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

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

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

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




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The tone became negative in the market after the report had noted the August sharp German industrial orders decline, raising fears that the eurozone largest economy is falling into a recession. The FOMC meeting minutes were published.

The downward trend line of 1.2670 is a main resistance for this pair. This level retest was followed by the price downward rebound. Buyers came to this downward trend line amid the reduced volume.

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.

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

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

Trading recommendations

The price is likely to go downward to the level of 1.2600. After breaking 1.3665 the pair may go to 1.2500.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The pound set up the two day high and then it again rebounded. The UK industrial production is not in its best condition.

Trading recommendations

Yen (JPY)

General overview

The yen strengthened after the International Monetary Fund had lowered its global economic growth forecast for both this and next year and had warned that the global economic recovery was weak and uneven.

The sellers were able to break through the strong support level of 108.50. The price did not manage to consolidate below the level despite it decreased to 108.00. This level was an additional obstacle, from which the pair bounced upward.

General overview

The Swiss franc has strengthened its position on Tuesday amid the technical correction against the dollar. Even the weak national statistics publication did not stop the franc growth the last few days.

The retail sales report issued in Switzerland showed an increase of 1.9% against 0.7%. Traders successfully used this opportunity to justify the franc strengthening.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9560, the next one is at 0.9500. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9680.

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

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

Trading recommendations

We advise to short with the first target - 0.9430. When the pair consolidates below the first target, we can open deals to the level of 0.9370.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

10.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

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

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

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

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

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




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The euro fell again at the end of the trading day. Earlier during the FOMC meeting minutes’ publication the US dollar weakened sharply towards the major currency pairs, breaking through the strong levels. The euro received some support with the some long dollar positions closing after the FOMC meeting minutes’ publication.

The resistance level was the downward trend line of 1.2670 for the EUR/ USD. Technically, the trend line break through has led to the downward trend upward turn. We expect the price growth to the nearest resistance level of 1.2850 in the long term.

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.

The price is in the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows an upward movment and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement.

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

Trading recommendations

We believe the growth will be continued now. The first target is the level 1.2850.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The Britain currency decreased at the yesterday’s trading. Before this the pound has considerably strengthened its position against the dollar.

Investors are waiting for the Bank of England interest rates decision that will be announced today.

The upper bound channel breakthrough of 1.6100 was followed by the high volume formation. The subsequent growth rates allow customers to consolidate above the strong resistance level of 1.6180 where the price is being traded now.

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 non-confirmed and a weak sell signal. The price is on the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement and form a “Golden Cross”. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

Trading recommendations

We expect the 1.6180 line break that will open the way for the buyers to 1.6270.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The US dollar has fallen against the Japanese yen. The Japanese yen received some support after the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had expressed his concern about the yen weakness impact on the national economy.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

13.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

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

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

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




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

Investors’ sentiment has changed with the eurozone economic data and the European currency was in the sales wave. The price movement, directed to the rising channel, has turned down.

The price turned back to the support level of 1.2600 amid the high-volume that has acted as the strong resistance for a long time. The level breakthrough has not occurred yet.

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.

The price is in the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows an upward movement.

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

Trading recommendations

The price is likely to go to the downward trend line 1.2600. The potential decrease targets are the support levels: 1.2500, 1.2400.



Pound(GBP)

General overview

The pound tried to continue its growth against the dollar, but it ended the last week with a decline as the euro did. The UK important events have not provoked any significant reaction in the market as the Bank of England did not change its monetary policy parameters.

The downtrend is still in progress. The corrective growth rates were stopped from the support level of 1.6100. The downward trend line of 1.6180 did not let buyers to go upwards. The trend line testing was followed by the price rebound to the support level of 1.6030.

The price is finding the first support at 1.6030, the next one is at 1.5950. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6100, the next one is at 1.6180.

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

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

Trading recommendations

After the trend line 1.6030 breakthrough down the way to the support 1.5950 will be opened.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

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

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

The key support level of 108.00 was broken through. In this case, the current trade is in the descending channel direction. It should also be noted that the trading volumes are at the high levels.

The price is finding the first support at 107.60, the next one is at 107.10. The price is finding the first resistance at 108.00, the next one is at 108.50.

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

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

Trading recommendations

If the price fixates below the support 107.10, it may continue the downward trend in the short term. The potential target is 106.70.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The franc has lost some won positions against the US dollar and started a consolidation.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9560, the next one is at 0.9500. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9680.

The price is in the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement and form a “Dead cross”.

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

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

14.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

The US dollar could compensate some lost ground - the dollar index basket (USDX) finished the last week at 85.81. The pair EUR/USD decreased by 0.5% amid the investors’ escape from the risky assets. Absolutely all the world's leading stock indecies came under a sales wave on Friday, prompting asset managers to get rid of the decreased euro. There was no important the US and eurozone macroeconomic statistics publication.

During the day the pound also was under pressure as well as the euro. Even the August UK positive trade balance has not helped the British currency. The negative balance was reduced to the level of 9.09 billion pounds in August that is significantly better than the forecasted medians. Inflation expectations became lower in Britain that calls into question the monetary policy tightening by the Bank of England in early 2015. In this regard, traders are afraid to open "longs" within the GBP/USD and we observe the downward trend development.

The USD/JPY was trading within a range of 107.60- 108.00. Amid the empty macroeconomic calendar the traders’ attention is focused on the US and Japan stock markets trade dynamics. Despite the fact that the US dollar was strengthening along the entire market against the Japanese yen, it finished the trading day in the "red zone." That bearish trend on the stock markets did not allow the dollar/yen to overcome October 9 high.




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The euro was in a side direction trades at the first trading day and increased at the end of the trading day against the dollar. The ECB functionaries’ statements led to the euro lower interest the last week that confirm once again the Fed's and the European regulator’s policies polarity. M. Draghi said that the euro zone economic risks are tilted to the downside at the conference in Washington and if inflation is still low, the bank's control board will implement additional unconventional policy measures.

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

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

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

Trading recommendations

We expect the euro growth. The potential growth target is the last week's high – the resistance level of 1.2790.



Pound (CHF)

General overview

The British pound has fallen against the US dollar. Obviously, the market shifts our expectations, concerning the first rate increase by the Bank of England to the middle of 2015, until recently, we expected the policy tightening at the end of the year. Apparently, such sentiment is improving due to the Bank of England omission, based on a series of the UK economic indicators, indicating slowdown and fears for the processes in the overall Eurozone economy.

The British pound has been trading in the downward trend line direction four months in a row. Short-term tests were followed by a trend line bounce rates down with the further bearish trend continuation.

At the moment buyers tried again to correct the price to the trend line of 1.6180. The trading volumes did not support just formed correction. Apparently, the downward trend line retest of 1.6180 will lead to another price rebound downwards.

The price is finding the first support at 1.6030, the next one is at 1.5950. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6100, the next one is at 1.6180.

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

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

Trading recommendations

The potential rebound target will be the current month low - the support level of 1.5950.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The Japanese yen has not broken the last week trends and has strengthened against the dollar once again. The stock market events caused the yen rising popularity for the five days after the pessimistic views and the state "treasuries" profitability decline. The political component also contributed to the yen demand namely the Japan Prime Minister Abe unexpected statements that the yen decrease undermines the small businesses and households’ development.

It is also worth noting that the trade is in the decreasing channel direction. The resistance level of 107.60 short break will be stopped by the channel 108.00 upper bound where it is likely to expect the downward correction continuation.

The price is finding the first support at 107.10, the next one is at 106.70. The price is finding the first resistance at 107.60, the next one is at 108.00.

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

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

Trading recommendations

The potential price decreasing targets are the levels of 107.10, 106.70.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The franc still tries to rise. The Swiss currency resumed its decline against the dollar last week. The Fed representative Stanley Fischer said in his speech that the Fed would not intervene in the foreign exchange market and called the recent dollar rise entirely appropriate. He also noted that the US dollar would remain low for some time that can mean a two months or a year range.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9500, the next one is at 0.9430. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9560, the next one is at 0.9620.

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

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

Trading recommendations

We advise to long with the first target - 0.9620. When the pair consolidates above the first target, we can open deals to the level of 0.9680.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

15.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

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

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

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

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

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




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

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

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

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

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

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

Trading recommendations

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



Pound (GBP)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Trading recommendations

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



Yen (JPY)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Trading recommendations

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



Franc (CHF)

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

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

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

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

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

Trading recommendations

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

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

16.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

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

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

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




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

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

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

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

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

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

Trading recommendations

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



Pound (GBP)

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

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

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

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

Trading recommendations  

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



Yen (JPY)

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

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

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

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

Trading recommendations

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



Franc (CHF)

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

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

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

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

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

Trading recommendations

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

Fundamental analysis

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

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

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




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

The German inflation reports pointed out to the continued price stagnation in September that was at the very low levels after their final evaluation - September CPI has kept the previous two months indicators, having fixed 0.0% m/m and 0.8% y/y. The US economic weak data provided the euro growth popularity.

The US dollar sharply weakened its position against its major currency pairs. The formed correction was followed by very high volumes on many trade assets that indicate the further dollar decrease.

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

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

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

Trading recommendations

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



Pound (GBP)

The British pound has also increased against the US dollar. Buyers were able to return the price to the resistance level of 1.6100. In this case the price return was amid the very high trading volume.

Despite the fact that the high volume appeared within the bullish trade, the trend is still downward in the medium term. There can be formed the small price correction to the resistance level of 1.6100 in the short term. Or it will be the next descending trend line retest of 1.6180.

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

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

20.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

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

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

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




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The euro/dollar spent the Friday session in a limited range and closed the session almost with the opening prices. The eurozone data gave the market some disappointment because the latest September inflationary evaluation confirmed the earlier price pressure growth results only 0.3% y/y that keeps the deflationary risks, and the foreign trade block information pointed to the August export and import drop.

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

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

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

Trading recommendations

The downward bounce potential target is 1.2670. We believe the pair to return to a decrease soon.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

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

The bulls were able to break through above the strong resistance level of 1.6030. The level breakthrough occurred on the high volume, but the price growth was not long term, soon the pair consolidated.

The price is finding the first support at 1.6030, the next one is at 1.5950. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6100, the next one is at 1.6180.

The price is in the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement and form a “Dead Cross”.

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

Trading recommendations

The downward trend line retest is more likely to lead to the price support levels 1.6030, 1.5950 return.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The Japanese yen was trading as the euro in the narrow corridor against the US dollar and finished the Friday trades with a decrease. The Bank of Japan Mr. Kuroda’s speech affected the pair movement who stated that the Japanese yen decrease was positive for Japan as well as the increased market yields treasuries.

The support level of 105.70 testing led to the short-term consolidation with the subsequent price growth. The intermediate growth target was the resistance level of 106.30. Having overcome this level, the pair tested the level of 106.70.

The price is finding the first support at 106.30, the next one is at 105.70. The price is finding the first resistance at 106.70, the next one is at 107.10.

There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen 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 negative territory. The price is correcting.

Trading recommendations

The pair is correcting upwards now. The downward movement will be continued. The pair may go to 106.30, 105.70 soon.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The franc stabilized against the US dollar amid our expectations that the US economy is ahead of the Europian and Japan economy.

The US data publication showed that the initial jobless claims fell to 264K versus 287K the previous 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 strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows an upward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horisontal movement and form a “Dead cross”. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

We advise to short with the first target - 0.9370. When the pair consolidates above the first target, we can open deals to the level of 0.9330.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

21.10.2014

Fundamental analysis

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

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

The pair USD/JPY strengthened significantly amid the global equity markets demand. After considerable sales on the American stock market – the bullish sentiment increased.

"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.

There is a confirmed and a weak buy signal. The price is on the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a horizontal 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

The potential rebound target is the support level of 1.2670. We do not exclude the level of 1.2600 retest.



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.

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

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

Trading recommendations

The level of 1.6180 retest may lead to the price rebound down. The potential rebound targets are the levels of support 1.6100, 1.6030.



Yen (JPY)

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.

The price is finding the first support at 106.30, the next one is at 105.70. The price is finding the first resistance at 106.70, the next one is at 107.10.

There is a confirmed and a weak sell signal. The price is on the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement and form a “Golden Cross”. 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 upward bounce potential target is 107.10.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The frank is strengthening its position amid the general trend of the weakening dollar after the Sent Luis Fed President James Bullard said that the Fed should consider a possibility to delay the asset purchase program completion to counter the expected inflation reduction. Then the franc fell again.

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 sell signal. The price is on the Cloud and it is under 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 negative territory. The price is correcting.

Trading recommendations

We advise to short with the first target - 0.9370. When the pair consolidates above the first target, we can open deals to the level of 0.9330.

"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.




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The euro will be under the external information influence, first of all under the US inflation data. If the data shows the US price pressure growth, as, in general it is expected that will increase our confidence in the ECB and the Fed policy growth that will add pressure on the euro.

The EUR/USD has broken through the lower uptrend boundary of 1.2730 that means the three-week correction turn in the long term.

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

There is a 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 downward movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

We suppose the pair consolidates first. The potential decrease targets are two levels of support: 1.2600, 1.2500.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The US good statistics was one of the main pound weakening reason. The technical factors influenced the pound as well. The growth was caused by the strong resistance level where the pair pound/dollar is now.

The Bank of England last meeting minutes will be published where they discussed the monetary policy future.

The pair GBP/USD is waiting the fundamental data. We expect one of the two important levels break through: 1.6180 and 1.6030 amid these data.

The price is finding the first support at 1.6030, the next one is at 1.5950. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6100, the next one is at 1.6180.

There is weak sell 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 one. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

We expect the level of 1.6030 break that will open the way to 1.5870.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The yen sales were caused by the price decrease on the Japan stock market where the Nikkei has lost about 2% .Then the technical factors and the US estate market sales strong data returned the pair growth - as a result the US dollar leveled the loss and got a slight "profit".

The Japanese economic data showed a further deficit growth. The pair USD/JPY intends to break the strong resistance level of 107.10 for the third time. The previous two strong resistance level of 107.35 tests were followed by the price rebound down.

The price is finding the first support at 107.10, the next one is at 106.70. The price is finding the first resistance at 107.60, the next one is at 108.00.

The price is in the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show an upward movement.

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

Trading recommendations

After the trend line 107.10 breakthrough upwards the way to the resistance level of 107.60 is opened.


Franc (CHF)

General overview

The Swiss franc retreated against the general dollar rise. The Switzerland trade balance data showed the $ 2.45 billion surplus. However, both exports (3.3%) and imports (7.4%) have fallen.

The pair USD/CHF rebounded to 0.9535 and stabilized near the daytime highs.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9500, the next one is at 0.9430. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9560, the next one is at 0.9620.

"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 rising channel lower boundary 1.2730 breakthrough led to the euro three-week upward correction reversal against the dollar.

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

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

Trading recommendations

We suppose the pair will go to 1.2600 first. Having overcome the first target the price might go downwards to 1.2500.



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.

The price is finding the first support at 1.6030, the next one is at 1.5950. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6100, the next one is at 1.6180.

The price is in the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement.

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

Trading recommendations

The potential decrease target is the support level of 1.5870.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The Japanese yen also fell against the dollar yesterday. The US information about consumer inflation was the main factor influencing the pair USD/JPY. Before this report publication the trades were in a narrow side range, and after the report publication the yen was in the sales wave and fixed its losses at the end of the trading day.

The buyers came to the strong resistance level of 108.00 at the low volumes that has earlier bounced the price down. The consolidation below the strong resistance can cause a slight price decrease in the short term.

The price is finding the first support at 107.10, the next one is at 106.70. The price is finding the first resistance at 107.60, the next one is at 108.00.

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 and the Kijun-sen show 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 increasing.

Trading recommendations

The price is likely to go to the downward trend line 107.10. The potential growth target is the resistance level of 108.50.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The Swiss franc fell against the dollar while the dollar index reached the one-week high after the US unexpected inflation increase in September.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9500, the next one is at 0.9430. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9560, the next one is at 0.9620.

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 an upward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

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

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

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.




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.



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.



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.



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 Germany’s 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.

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

There is a confirmed and a weak sell signal. The price is on the Cloud and it is below the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement and form a “Golden Cross”. 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 potential decrease targets are two levels of support: 1.2670, 1.2600.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The pair GBP/USD, grew up at the yesterday's trading amid the weak activity. There was no reason for the pound sales and the UK economic statistics did not give any neutral information, the weak US economic data supported both the “cable” and the euro.

The corrective pound growth is low against the US dollar. Buyers has broken through and fixed above the downward trend line of 1.6100 at the low 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 and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement and form a “Golden Cross”. 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

If the price fixates below the support level of 1.6030, it may continue the downward trend in the short term. The potential target is 1.5950.



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 Japan’s 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.

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 horizontal 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

The upward bounce potential target are 108.00, 108.50.



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.

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.

The price is in the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement and form a “Dead Cross”.

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

Trading recommendations

We advise to short with the first target - 0.9430. When the pair consolidates below the first target, we can open deals to the level of 0.9370.

"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.




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The current sentiment on the single European currency can hardly be called positive, but the "bears" do not hurry to resume active operations.

We got the disappointing data from France – the consumer confidence in the second eurozone economy fell by one point in October this year. The French consumer confidence index dropped from 86 points to 85 points. The interviewed economists assumed that the rate would remain unchanged at the level of 86 points.

The pair euro/dollar came close to the downward trend line of 1.2730 and fell down.

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 non-confirmed and a weak sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is below the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement and form a “Golden Cross”. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

If the price falls below the level of 1.2670 the downward movement will be continued.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The pair GBP/USD tried to fall below 1.6100 amid the UK weak data and still remains there.

The money supply was also weaker than it had expected - at -0.7% vs. 0.5%, reflecting the lower price pressure.

The pair GBP/USD failed to update the last week maximum level of 1.6180.

Trading recommendations

The level of 1.6100 testing may lead to the price rebound down. The potential rebound targets are the support levels of 1.6030, 1.5950.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

After the US consumer confidence data the dollar/yen is trading with 0.15% decrease. The world stock markets growth is still keeping - the Japanese Nikkei stock index rose by 0.74%.

The investors ignored the sharp industrial production recovery in Japan that rose by 2.7% in September in comparison with August against the expected 2.2% growth.

The USD/JPY was consolidating below the strong resistance level of 108.00 and then it grew. The pair closed the trades above the resistance level of 108.50.

"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.




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The dollar perspectives are improving besides the weak euro zone economic indicators that triggered expectations for the additional monetary policy easing measures by the ECB, thereby putting pressure on the pair EUR/USD. The dollar rose to the current session beginning after the US Federal Reserve expressed optimism about the employment situation. The optimistic perspectives assessment surprised the market that led to the short positions closure within the dollar.

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

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

Trading recommendations

The downward movement is to be continued. The pair may go to 1.2500 soon.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The UK will present the housing price index for October.

The pound tried to test the support level of 1.5950 after the disappointing British statistics publication. The approved mortgages applications showed the approvals reduced to 61.267K against 62.250K that confirms the real estate sector strength. As for the money supply data, the index fell by 0.7% against the forecasted 0.5% growth, indicating the weak price pressures.

There was a rapid price rebound down from the downward trend line of 1.6180 acting as an inclined resistance line. Due to the active pound decrease against the US dollar, sellers were able to break through and consolidate below the strong support level of 1.6030.

The price is finding the first support at 1.5950, the next one is at 1.5870. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6030, the next one is at 1.6100.

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 consolidating.

Trading recommendations

The price is going down. We expect the level of 1.5870 testing soon.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The Japanese yen continued to fall against the dollar. The US dollar can influence the exchange rate dynamics. Japan will publish the consumer inflation and the unemployment data for September.

The buyers break through the strong resistance level of 108.50 upwards. The level breakthrough occurred amid the low volumes; however, the mark of 109.00 has been already overcome.

The trading on the inside daily chart is still in the uplink channel direction. Therefore, the bullish trend is still relevant, despite such small growth volumes.

The price is finding the first support at 109.00, the next one is at 108.50. The price is finding the resistance at 109.50.

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 and the Kijun-sen show 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 increasing.

Trading recommendations

The buyers need to break above 109.50 for a steady growth.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The pair dollar/franc will be trading in the higher range supported by a positive attitude towards the dollar, the Swiss currency sales with the declining pair franc/yen and the soft monetary policy by the Swiss National Bank. The October economic barometer KOF will be released in Switzerland.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9560, the next one is at 0.9500. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9680.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

03.11.2014

Fundamental analysis

The US dollar continued to strengthen against its major competitors - the dollar index basket finished the trading day at around 86.15. The pair EUR/USD has lost 0.2% amid the US positive statistics and the Euro zone negative data. The US GDP preliminary data for the 3rd quarter came out better than the forecasted medians, showing an increase to the level of 3.5%. We have observed a strong economic growth that supports the dollar demand for the second quarter in a row. The Spain and Germany inflation releases disappointed traders with their weak data - the major economies inflation is decreasing once again amid the lower oil quotations and the weak consumer demand. The euro zone CPI decline jeopardizes the possible euro rise.

The GBP/USD was also under pressure amid the US positive macroeconomic data. The strong GDP data for the third quarter amid the Britain economic growth slowdown cheered bears to open short positions. At the moment the pound quotes reached the mark of 1.5950 and then traders began taking profits on the "shorts" and the British pound was able to consolidate. It is worth noting the US and the UK bond yields expansion indicates the further bearish sentiment predominance within the GBP/USD.

The bulls felt quite at ease within the USD/JPY. The US positive economic data supported the dollar demand as well as on corporate bonds demand in the US stock market. The dollar/yen enjoyed steady demand against this background and at the moment quotes reached the level of 112.30.




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The euro has looked less vulnerable and after differently directional trade fixed some losses against the dollar, but they were less extensive. The US economic data that did not please traders supported the euro and the euro zone economic statistics showed quite positive indicators’ results.

The sellers broke through the strong support level of 1.2600 amid the high volatility news last week. The level short-term test was followed by a slight price rebound downwards.

The price is finding the first support at 1.2500, the next one is at 1.2400. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2600, the next one is at 1.2670.

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 decreasing.

Trading recommendations

We expect the 1.2500 line break that will open the way for the sellers to 1.2400.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The British pound had different directed trades against the dollar and ended the session with its decline less significant than the day before. The sentiments, formed under the Fed's statement influence supported the pair pound/dollar sale and then the US GDP data caused the pound sale.

The support level of 1.6030 breakthrough was followed by a reverse test. This level became a resistance.

Trading recommendations

After the trend line 1.5950 breakthrough down the way to the support 1.5870 will be opened.



Yen(JPY)

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

04.11.2014

Fundamental analysis

The previous week ended in the dollar favor in all spheres. The US dollar gave a powerful "fort" against the yen that was less strong. The dollar grew against the euro and showed a neutral result against the pound. The market was excited by Japan reports where the Central Bank unexpectedly increased its incentive program which provoked the strong dollar sales against the yen at the end of the last week. The EU largest economic data that continue to disappoint us helped to resume the dollar growth against the euro.

The pair pound/dollar spent trading in the different directional consolidation and finished the dispute on the opening prices as there was no disappointed pound news and the US economic indicators were uneven, although most of them showed a positive release.

The beginning of the week contains a lot of important US economic information, but the main theme will be the October employment labor report and the information about the number of work places in the ADP private sector.

Our expectations are associated with a good dynamics that can point out to the continued high level of workplaces in the United States and it can support the US dollar according to the general rule "buy the rumor". However, the European news is able to set the trading tone, because both the Eurozone and the UK influential European Central Banks will announce their decisions about the monetary policy perspectives on Thursday.




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The attitude towards the euro has not changed - the single currency ended last week with the continued fall against the dollar. The weak economic data from the leading EU countries strengthened pressure on the euro in the early trading.

The sellers approached to the support level of 1.2500 amid the high volume. This level is the October minimum and it was broken through.

The strong support breakthrough points towards the bearish trend continuation. It is likely to expect the level of 1.2500 retest acting as resistance.

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 price is consolidating.

Trading recommendations

The downward movement will be continued. The pair may go to 1.2400 soon.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The British pound was stable against the US dollar. Obviously, the lack of the UK information and the fact that the Bank of England and the Federal Reserve policy are directed to one side cause the market reticence, moreover this week the British regulator will hold its next meeting dedicated to the monetary policy issues.

The British pound continues to uncertainly decline against the US dollar.

There was formed the downward channel where the pair is now. Until the price is not out of the channel limits, the downward trend remains in force.

"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.




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The single European currency held the trading against the dollar in the side consolidation and was closed with a minor plus at the end of the day. The technical factors presented by the strong support levels where the euro/dollar fell supported the euro.

The bulls broke through the strong resistance level of 1.2500 upwards within the euro in the short term. At this moment the insignificant breakthrough is not supported by the trade volumes.

The price is finding the first support at 1.2500, the next one is at 1.2400. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2600, the next one is at 1.2670.

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 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

We advise to short with the first target – 1.2500. After fixing below the first target, the level 1.2400 will become the next one.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The beginning of the week was negative for the British pound – the pound fell against the dollar under the sentiment pressure caused by the China news. However, the British currency leveled all the losses during the trades and even some time it rose against the dollar. The good “cable” sentiment provided the UK economic data that announced the indicator activity result in the UK manufacturing sector.

At the moment the price is between two important levels of 1.6030 - 1.5950. The breakthrough of one will be a good signal for the trade in the breakthrough direction.

The price is finding the first support at 1.5950, the next one is at 1.5870. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6030, the next one is at 1.6100.

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 consolidating.

Trading recommendations

The trend is going downwards. After the trend line 1.5950 breakthrough the way to the support 1.5870 will be opened.



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.

The growth rates fell in the area round the resistance level 114.20, of which at this time formed a downward pullback. At the same time the formed correction was also not supported by volumes.

The price is finding the first support at 113.00, the next one is at 112.50. The price is finding the resistance at 114.20.

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

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

Trading recommendations

The approach to the level of 112.50 leads to a price rebound upwards. The upward bounce potential target is 114.20.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The franc continued to consolidate against the dollar amid the speculations that the solid economic data increases the probability of beginning interest rates process in the United States in the middle of next year. The pair slightly declined at the end of the trades.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9560, the next one is at 0.9500. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9680.

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 and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal 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 advise to long with the first target - 0.9620. When the pair consolidates above the first target, we can open deals to the level of 0.9680.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

06.11.2014

Fundamental analysis

The market has likely taken a wait–and-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.



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.

The fifth consecutive day the British Pound is trading below the strong resistance level of 1.6030. The short-term tests are followed by the small prices rebound downwards to the support level of 1.5965.

The price is finding the first support at 1.5950, the next one is at 1.5870. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.6030, the next one is at 1.6100.

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 consolidating.

Trading recommendations

The nearest target remains the level of 1.6030. If successful, it is expected to fall to the level of 1.5950 and 1.5870.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The dollar growth continued against the yen. The pair stopped in a no-man’s 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.

The price is finding the first support at 113.50, the next one is at 112.60. The price is finding the resistance at 114.60.

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 and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

We do not have targets upwards. The visible mark the price can bounce further is 114.60



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The dollar-franc closed the trades on the opening prices. Earlier the dollar fell against the Swiss franc as traders close positions in advance of the two main events this week: the ECB meeting today and the US employment report on Friday.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9560. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9680, the next one is at 0.9750.

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 and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

We advise to long with the first target - 0.9680. Should that level break down, we can open deals to the level of 0.9750.

"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 Kocherlakoty’s 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.




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

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

Trading recommendations

The nearest target remains the support level 1.25. If the price fixates below the resistance level of 1.2500, it may continue the downward trend in the short term. The potential targets are 1.2300, 1.2200.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

"The British" fell in yesterday trades. Earlier the British pound was able to compensate most of the losses, provoked by the weak national statistics. The previous manufacturing activity publication was strong, but the construction sector state indicators have disappointed investors.

The British pound updated lows at the level of 1.5870. The price has been reduced under this level.

Trading recommendations

The potential growth target is the resistance level of 115.80. We don’t exclude a larger bullish correction soon.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The dollar has strengthened its position against the Swiss franc after the positive US labor market data release. The number of employees in the US private sector by ADP in October amounted 230K, vs. 220K. The data were positive for the dollar because of some extent they confirm the Fed’s clear optimistic sentiment at the end of the FOMC last meeting.

"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.



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. However, it was considered by the market as the reason for the pound decrease and put some pressure on the "cable".

Sellers have managed to break through the support level of 1.5870 for the second time. The level breakthrough was amid the high volumes. The pair is testing the level of 1.5870 from the bottom.

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.

Yen (JPY)

General overview

The pair dollar/yen tried to continue its growth on the common sentiment for the "dollar", but its attempts were broken off amid the Japan stock market quotations decrease where the Nikkei fell by almost 1%.

Franc (CHF)

General overview

"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.



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.

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 and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

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.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

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.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9560. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9680, the next one is at 0.9750.

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 and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

We advise to long with the first target - 0.9750.

"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.

The resistance level short term test of 1.2500 was followed by the price rebound downwards. The US dollar continued to strengthen against the euro amid the low volumes. The rebound from the resistance level of 1.2500 has led to the descending channel formation. The price decreased to the level of 1.2400. The buyers again corrected the price to the level of 1.2500.

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 and form a “Golden Cross”. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

The downward movement will be continued. The pair may go to 1.2400 soon.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The British pound also spent the yesterday's trading in the side trade. The general market sentiment was influenced by the GBP/USD which decreased in the early session and then rose that resulted in the pound strengthening at the end of the day.

The resistance level short break of 1.5870 was followed by the reverse price return above this mark. The reverse price return above the level of 1.5870 allowed the buyers to lower the price to the resistance level of 1.5950.

The trading volumes are at the lows, besides today we expect the fundamental data releases. We expect a consolidation below the support level of 1.5950 in the short term.

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 shows an upward movement and the Kijun-sen shows 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 correcting.

Trading recommendations

The potential decrease target is the support level of 1.5660.



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.

The short-term correction to the support level of 114.60 was followed by the price rebound upwards. Despite the reduced volumes, the buyers returned the price back to the resistance level of 115.80 where the price rebounded in the opposite direction.

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.

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 horizontal 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

If the price breaks 114.60 down it will open the way to the level of 113.50.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The dollar again began to lose ground after a slight increase. Earlier the dollar recovers its positions after the short recession caused by the US labor report publication.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9560. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9680, the next one is at 0.9750.

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 horizontal movement and the Kijun-sen shows an upward movement and form a “Dead Cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

We recommend going short with the first target - 0.9560. When the price consolidates below the first target it may go to the level 0.9500.

"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 euro has consolidated against the dollar. There were no events that could support the euro and its interest could be based on the technical factors and the US Central Bank speeches. Moreover, the EU authoritative analysts’ statements could be a reason for the increasing pressure on the European currency.

The trend is expected to go downwards according to this instrument in the medium-term. The correctional growth price continuation is expected in the short 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 shows a horizontal movement and the Kijun-sen shows a downtrend movement and form a “Golden Cross”. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

The pair is close to the strong resistance level of 1.2500. If the pair breaks it we expect the growth to 1.2600.



Pound(GBP)

General overview

The British pound has sharply fallen against the dollar. Obviously, the market was guided by the technical factors and the US news.

We expect the UK employment data and the inflation report by the Bank of England which will be commented by the institution president M.Karni at the press conference.

The key resistance for bears is the downward trend line of 1.5950, from which the pair rebounded downwards.

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 downward 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 trend is a core sided. We expect the level of 1.5660 testing soon.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The Japanese yen fell against the dollar on the yesterday trades. The Japan stock market events where the Nikkei grew by 2% and then the rumors that the next Japan sales tax increase may be postponed to the later date put some pressure on the yen.

At the beginning of the week buyers were able to break through and consolidate above the resistance level of 114.60. The level breakthrough was amid the low volumes and led to a consolidation.

The price is finding the first support at 114.60, the next one is at 113.50. The price is finding the first resistance at 115.80, the next one is at 117.00.

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 horizontal movement and form a “Golden Cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

The potential growth target is the resistance level of 117.00.



Franc (CHF)

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. It may complicate the National Bank work in control over the exchange rate. In this case the regulator will be given five years to increase gold reserves to the required levels.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9560. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9680, the next one is at 0.9750.

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 and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement and form a “Dead Cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud

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

Trading recommendations

We recommend going short with the first target - 0.9620. When the price consolidates below the first target it may go to the level 0.9560.

"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.




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 consolidation continuation was a good signal for the prices rebound downwards. Moreover, buyers were not able to lift the price above the level of 1.2500 and this level testing was unsuccessful.

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.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The UK economic data have shown the labor market positive results, but the inflation report and the BoE M.Karni’s comments caused a pessimism wave and provoked the pressure increase on the pound which fell against the dollar to the new local low and ended the trades with significant losses.

The British pound broke through and fixed below the strong support level of 1.5870. The level breakthrough was amid the GBP high volatile news.

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 likely to go to the downward trend line 1.5660.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The Japanese yen was traded against the dollar in the side consolidation and closed the session with small losses. Obviously, the pair little activity was the result of the different rumors related to the Japan fiscal policy that decide the sales tax fate, the possible early parliament elections and also amid the neutral events in the stock markets.

There was the support level of 115.80 testing. It was amid the low volumes and failed to break above this level. The price is consolidating below this level.

The price is finding the first support at 114.60, the next one is at 113.50. The price is finding the first resistance at 115.80, the next one is at 117.00.

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 and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement and form a “Golden Cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

After the trend line 115.80 breakthrough upwards the way to the resistance 117.00 will be opened.



Franc (CHF)

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.

In the center of this popular legislative initiative is the requirement to prohibit the Swiss National Bank from selling its gold reserves. In addition, the initiative requires that one fifth of the Swiss Central Bank foreign exchange reserves would be translated into the pure gold.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9560. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9680, the next one is at 0.9750.

The price is above the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a horizontal movement and the Kijun-sen shows a downward movement and form a “Dead Cross”.

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

Trading recommendations

We recommend going short with the first target - 0.9560. When the price consolidates below the first target it may go to the level 0.9500.

"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.





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.



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.

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

Trading recommendations

The approach to the level of 1.5870 may lead to the price rebound down.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The Japanese yen declined against the dollar at the yesterday trades. The attitude towards the yen remained under the BoJ recent decision influence to increase the easing program volumes. However, the pair USD / JPY demand has reduced.

The corrective price decline was formed. Then the pair continued the upward movement.

The price is finding the first support at 115.80, the next one is at 114.60. The price is finding the resistance at 117.00.

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 and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

We believe the growth will be continued now. The first target is the level 117.00.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The US dollar is strengthening in almost all the currency market instruments. We still expect the trends change and of course the most comfortable trend change will lead to another dollar high formation.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9560. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9680, the next one is at 0.9750.

The price is above the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a horizontal movement and the Kijun-sen shows a downward movement.

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

Trading recommendations

We recommend going short with the first target - 0.9560. When the price consolidates below the first target it may go to the level 0.9500.

"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.




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The euro continued to strengthen its position. The better ZEW report for November in comparison with the forecasts supported the euro. The Germany and the EU data unexpectedly exceeded forecasts, showing the economic sentiment growth up to 11.5 pp and 11.0 pp respectively.

The trading volumes continue to decline downwards both with the corrective growth and with the trade price within the trend. The bearish trend potential is still in force.

The price is finding the first support at 1.2500, the next one is at 1.2400. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2600, the next one is at 1.2670.

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 horizontal movement. The upward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

The price is likely to go to the support levels of 1.2400, 1.2300.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The Bank of England's last meeting monetary policy minutes will not cause a strong reaction on the traders’ part this time. We received a quarterly inflation report the last week where the monetary authorities indicated all the key guidelines. In this regard, the traders will focus their attention on the Fed “minutes” publication.

There was formed the quite strong divergence within the pound on the trading volumes. The downward trend is not supported by sellers and is gradually losing steam. The pair slightly corrected.

The price is finding the first support at 1.5660, the next one is at 1.5550. 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 shows a horizontal movement and the Kijun-sen shows a downward movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

The downward movement will be continued. The pair may go to 1.5660, 1.5550 soon.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The yen suffered losses against the euro and the dollar after the Japan Prime Minister Abe announced the early parliamentary elections and postponed the planned sales tax increase.

This fact proves that the government is aware that the third world economy is not in the great shape and intends to take the additional stimulating measures.

The dollar continues to strengthen against the Japanese yen. The upward trend is on the declining volumes. Technically the yen demand is gradually weakening.

The price is finding the first support at 117.00, the next one is at 115.80. The price is finding the first resistance at 118.00, the next one is at 119.20.

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 horizontal 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 increasing.

Trading recommendations

We expect the 118.00 line break that will open the way for the buyers to 119.20.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The Swiss franc rose against the dollar after the US statistics publication. The data showed that the US producer price index rose 0.2% in October while analysts expected a decline by 0.1%. The figure rose by 1.5% in annual terms that is higher the forecast by 1.3%.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9560, the next one is at 0.9500. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9680.

There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a horizontal 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 negative territory. The price is decreasing.

Trading recommendations

We recommend going short with the first target - 0.9500. When the price consolidates below the first target it may go to the level 0.9430.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

24.11.2014

Fundamental analysis

There was a flat within the major pairs the last week. The euro sharply fell at the end of the week. The pair EUR/USD was not able to test the 25th figure and at the moment of quotations reached the mark of 1.2555 despite the negative France and Germany manufacturing sector PMI release and then we saw a sharp decrease. The US inflation release came out slightly better than traders had expected, though it did not bring special dividends for the US dollar. The CRB commodity showed a moderately upward trend that put some pressure on the dollar.

The UK positive retail sales release for October encouraged traders to open long positions within the pair GBP/USD. The index came out at the level of 0.8%, instead of the expected 0.4%. The British pound reached the level of 1.5735, then bulls began to close their "longs" and we saw a technical rebound below 57th figure. The US CPI release increased the US and the UK negative yield spreads that restrained bulls from the long positions retention.

The first time for the last few months Japan issued the positive trade balance. The yen devaluation will reflect positively on exporters and as a result we have seen the negative balance reduction by 250 billion yen. However, the traders ignored the positive data and we observed the strong quotations growth to the level of 118.99. Then traders fixed profits on the "longs" and at the moment of the quotation the pair USD/JPY reached the level of 117.75 where it formed a consolidation.




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The euro was consolidating near the 25th figure, but it sharply fell amid the ECB chief’s speech. Earlier in the absence of any important macroeconomic statistics it is difficult to expect high volatility within the major pairs. Even despite the negative France and Germany PMI the euro did not fall below 25th figure, indicating the traders’ reluctance to increase shorts. The bond market spreads also show the neutral background.

The situation within the euro/dollar changed. The pair closed the week below the trend line 1.2400.

The price is finding the first support at 1.2300, the next one is at 1.2200. 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 under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a downward movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

When the price consolidates below the level of 1.2400 it may go to the level of 1.2300.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The UK low inflation expectations put pressure on the "cable". In this regard, we observe the UK and the US negative differential bond yields extension that acts as the bulls’ deterrent.

The pound corrective strength reached the week maximum - the resistance level of 1.5735 and fell to the level of 1.5660. The level of 1.5735 is below the resistance level of 1.5870 that is a key resistance on the buyers’ way.

The price is finding the first support at 1.5660, the next one is at 1.5550. 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 and form a “Golden Cross”. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

The potential decrease target is the support level of 1.5550.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The pair has been growing for a long time and therefore now there are many people wishing to close the part of the "longs". The US stock market is showing strength after the minor technical correction, the Nasdaq index is again the leading growth that signals about the positive trend continuation on the stock market.

The US dollar strong growth against the Japanese yen was stopped at the level of 118.60. From this level there was formed the short-term correction to the level of 118.00 where a consolidation is observed.

The price is finding the first support at 117.00, the next one is at 115.80. The price is finding the first resistance at 118.00, the next one is at 119.00.

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 consolidating.

Trading recommendations

The approach to the level of 117.00 may lead to the price rebound upwards. The potential rebound target is the resistance level of 119.20.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The US consumer price inflation is above the predicted values, but it is not a reason for the active dollar sales and purchases. The pair sharply increased at the end of the Friday trades.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9680, the next one is at 0.9620. The price is finding the resistance at 0.9720.

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 and the Kijun-sen show an upward movement and form a “Golden Cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

We recommend going short with the first target - 0.9620. When the price consolidates below the first target it may go to the level 0.9560.

"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. Draghi’s 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.




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The euro was able to slightly recover on the yesterday's trading. The euro fell sharply against the dollar, having lost all the gains of the previous day sessions and closed the last week with a substantial decrease. The reason of such a sharp changes in the investors’ sentiment against the euro was the Draghi’s statement about the European regulator’s intentions to continue quantitative easing and its readiness to expand aggressively these programs.

There was a rapid euro decline against the US dollar on the Friday's trading session. The price fell to the current month minimum- the support level of 1.2385. The euro has grown to a value of 1.2437 at this week beginning.

The pair can break the support level of 1.2400. After breaking 1.2400 the pair may go to 1.2300.

"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. However, the production index in the Richmond Fed influence zone was forecasted to decrease in November, and fell to 4 from 20 and the September house price index from the S & P / Case-Shiller for 20 megacities is increased to + 4.9% y/y.




Technical analysis


Euro (EUR)

General overview

We received two releases from the US: the second third quarter GDP assessment and the Conference Board consumer confidence data. As for the first release - the consensus forecast by the leading banks economists from the Wall Street suggests decline by 0.2%, but the positive macroeconomic reports indicate the data output slightly better than the traders’ expectations.

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

Trading recommendations

The potential decrease targets are the support levels: 1.2400, 1.2300.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The inflation parliamentary hearings were held in the United Kingdom. The CPI figures showed its growth to 1.3% in October, but the inflation expectations remain subdued amid the lower energy prices. The unemployment rate reduction with the moderate average salary increase will reinforce the inflationary growth in the commodity market correction period.

The sellers have been reducing the price towards the downward channel the fifth week in a row. Every time when the price is corrected to the channel upper bound there is formed the price rebound downwards.

The price is finding the first support at 1.5660, the next one is at 1.5550. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5870, the next one is at 1.5950.

The upward trend line of 1.5870 retest is more likely to lead to the strong price support level of 1.5550 decrease.



Yen (JPY)


General overview

The Bank of Japan governor Haruhiko Kuroda has given his speech. Mr. Kuroda’s speech was traditionally characterized by his optimism about the economic growth perspectives in regard with the yen devaluation and the sales tax increase delay. The dollar index basket is aimed to increase near 88.70. The US and Japan stock markets positive dynamics also points out to the bullish sentiment within the pair USD/JPY.

The short-term price decline was at the lower volumes and fell to 118.00. We expect the consolidation near this mark.

The price is finding the first support at 117.00, the next one is at 115.80. The price is finding the first resistance at 118.00, the next one is at 119.20.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

27.11.2014

Fundamental analysis

The US dollar was under pressure - the dollar index basket (DXY) finished the trading day around 87.90. The EUR/USD was able to finish the trading day in a positive territory despite the mixed news. Earlier the second US GDP assessment for the third quarter pleased traders by the positive data –the indicator was revised upwards by 3.9%. The United States show strong growth for the last two quarters that is seen in the dollar strengthening.

The parliamentary inflation hearings did not cause any significant fluctuations within the pair GBP/USD. Mark Carney denied deflationary fears and also pointed out that the cumulative monetary policy tightening would likely be less significant than it was expected earlier.

The Bank of Japan governor’ speech was held on Tuesday and allowed the Japanese yen with the US dollar to compensate some lost ground. Haruhiko Kuroda said that the monetary authorities would closely monitor the yen devaluation as this process begins to exert pressure on households. It was also noted that rising inflation expectations affect the salary and pricing strategy. The pair grew after the US GDP the third quarter assessment release.




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The Eurozone again will not please the traders with any interesting macroeconomic releases. The foreign exchange traders will focus their attention on the US reports. According to the leading indicators the US consumers’ activity is increasing and therefore we can expect moderately positive durable goods sales data.

The support level of 1.2400 short-term testing has led to the correction to the level of 1.2500. The trades closed above this level.

The price is finding the first support at 1.2500, the next one is at 1.2400. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2600, the next one is at 1.2670.

The price is in the Cloud and it is under 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 approach to the level of 1.2500 may lead to the price rebound down. The potential rebound target is the level of support 1.2400.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

We do not expect the indicator revision upwards from the adjusted UK GDP release for the 3rd quarter. The release can be at the level of the forecasted medians. The moderately positive durable goods orders release can support the US dollar demand, but we cannot count on the strong dollar growth as traders ignored the positive US GDP release.

The British pound has been consolidating at the support level of 1.5660 practically for two weeks. The pound sharply increased yesterday.

The price is finding the first support at 1.5660, the next one is at 1.5550. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5870, the next one is at 1.5950.

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

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

Trading recommendations

If the price falls it will get to 1.5660.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

Taking into consideration the US moderately positive macroeconomic statistics we can expect the dollar growth, but in connection with the Thanksgiving Day celebration and on this background the stock market participants took profits on the long positions yesterday.

The price is consolidating above the strong support level of 118.00 amid the low volumes.

The price is finding the first support at 117.00, the next one is at 115.80. The price is finding the first resistance at 118.00, the next one is at 119.20.

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

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

Trading recommendations

If the price fixates above the resistance level of 118.00, it may continue the upward trend in the short term. The potential target is 119.20.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The Swiss franc showed a growth continuation. The dollar was unable to maintain its achievements, despite the positive statistics release, including the GDP data and the house price index.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9560, the next one is at 0.9500. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9680.

The price is in the Cloud and it is above 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

We recommend going long with the first target - 0.9680. When the price consolidates above the first target it may go to the level 0.9750.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

28.11.2014

Fundamental analysis

The US dollar is under pressure the whole week. The pair EUR/USD was able to consolidate above the level of 1.2400 amid the German and the US Treasuries bond spreads reduction. The US macroeconomic statistics was generally positive – the durable goods orders increased by 0.4% in October. We should also note the personal consumption expenditures index growth to the level of year on year 1.6%. The Fed focuses namely on this indicator, determining the consumer activity. The new buildings rate sales in October stopped short before the predicted value. Despite the positive background - the euro again showed weakness.

Institutional investors continue to take profits on the short positions within the pair GBP/USD. Despite the UK moderate negative statistics – the pound tested the 58th figure during the day. The retail sales release according to the industrials confederation data (CBI) for November came out worse than the forecasted medians. We should also note a sharp investment decline for the third quarter. As we noted above, to the contrary, the US statistics showed a positive trend. At the moment of quotation the pair pound/dollar fell to the mark of 1.5736.

The pair USD/JPY was under pressure most of the day – traders, concerned about the Bank of Japan governor’s statement that the monetary authorities are worried about the strong yen devaluation, getting rid of the long positions. The price reached the level of 117.45, but then after the US positive macroeconomic statistics bulls were able to recover some lost ground.




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

All traders’ attention will be focused on the Petroleum Exporting Countries meeting in Vienna. We again will see the Brent and WTI quotations decrease that will put some support to the US dollar.

The downtrend trend line short term test at the level of 1.2500 was followed by the consolidation.

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

Trading recommendations

The approach to the level of 1.2500 may lead to the price rebound down. The potential rebound targets are the support level of 1.2400 and 1.2300.

General overview

The UK 10-year bond yields fell below 2% yesterday that is a bearish signal for the pound. The UK investments volume for the third quarter decreased by 0.7%, indicating the business representatives negative expectations.

Trading recommendations

We suppose the pair will go to 1.5870 first. Having overcome the first target the price might go upwards to 1.5950 and 1.6030.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

We should expect the lateral trend development throughout the day amid the absence of important macroeconomic statistics publication and the weekend in the United States. The OPEC summit results certainly will have an impact on the balance of power in the Forex foreign exchange market, but we should expect the lowest volatility within the pair dollar/yen.

The US dollar continued to correct downwards relatively to the Japanese yen. The price corrective decline volumes are in the reduced zone, indicating the sellers’ reducing power.

The price is finding the first support at 117.00, the next one is at 115.80. The price is finding the first resistance at 118.00, the next one is at 119.20.

Franc (CHF)

General overview

The Swiss franc has consolidated against the dollar the second day in a row after the US data release that fixed the jobless claims growth and the orders decrease, resulting in the intensified speculations about the world's largest economy growth prospects.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9560. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9680, the next one is at 0.9750.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

01.12.2014

Fundamental analysis

The OPEC summit was held- the oil production level remains the same despite the strong differences within the cartel. Against this background we saw a powerful "bearish rally" within the black gold - the WTI oil has fallen below $ 70 / barrel the first time for the last four years. The pair EUR/USD was under pressure after the last week three-day growth – the Spain and Germany inflation preliminary data did not please the traders with their positive releases. The ECB President Mario Draghi underlined that the monetary authorities are ready to increase incentives if necessary and asked his colleagues to carry out additional analysis. The oil quotations decrease with the negative internal background put some pressure on the euro.

The oil cartel decision sent the Brent quotes to the bottom that increased demand for the UK government bonds. The Gilts 10-year bond yields were at the level of 1.92% last Thursday that is the lowest level for the last 18 months. The UK inflation expectations are declining that puts pressure on the pound. Against this negative background, most of the Friday trades we observed the British pound sales and the trading day finished with decrease within the pair GBP/USD.

The traders continued to get rid of the US dollar within the pair USD/JPY as they were afraid of the Bank of Japan's comments about the negative yen devaluation impact on the household spending. The commodity goods sales lead to the dollar demand. The pair closed the last week with an increase.




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The Germany and Spain CPI preliminary releases showed the consumer prices decrease in annual terms, indicating that the data was at the level of the forecasted medians. In recent months we have seen the monetary aggregate M3 increase money amid the ECB accommodating monetary policy, but it will be not enough to increase inflationary pressure in the current circumstances. The oil market sales also will strengthen the demand for the US dollar.

The four day euro corrective growth against the US dollar was stopped by the downward trend line of 1.2500. The trend line testing was followed by the consolidation with the further prices rebound downwards.

The price rebounded from the trend line to the level of 1.2450 at the low volumes.

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

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

Trading recommendations

The pair can fall to the support level of 1.2400. After breaking 1.2400 the pair may go to 1.2300.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The British pound was unable to consolidate its success after the resistance level of 1.5660 breakthrough. The price returned back and it has broken through this level downwards amid the low volumes.

The key support for buyers is the uptrend lower bound of 1.5660. Based on the fact on which volatility the sellers drive the price downwards, the price consolidation will be formed near the channel lower bound in the short term.

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

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

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

Trading recommendations

The buyers need to break above 1.5660 for a steady growth. The way to the mark 1.5870 will be opened after this breakthrough.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

Japan will publish a set of the important macroeconomic statistics where the October CPI data stand apart. On the one hand, we observed the yen devaluation and the money supply increase in October that is a positive factor for the inflation. On the other hand, the energy prices decline with the low household level will put pressure on the consumer price index.

The second consecutive week the price has been consolidating within the side corridor levels of 118.60 - 117.60. There was a short-term lower bound of 117.60 breakthrough, but the price returned back above the level, forming a high volume.

The price is finding the first support at 118.00, the next one is at 117.00. The price is finding the resistance at 119.20.

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 and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement and form a “Golden Cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

We expect the third resistance level of 118.60 testing in the short term. If the price rises at the low volumes and at the relatively low volatility, the price rebound will be possible downwards.

The downward bounce potential target is 117.00. It can be followed by a price consolidation.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The franc continues to consolidate against the dollar in anticipation of the new movement catalysts.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9560. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9680, the next one is at 0.9750.

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

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

Trading recommendations

We recommend going short with the first target - 0.9560. When the price consolidates under the first target it may go to the level of 0.9500.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

03.12.2014

Fundamental analysis

The euro fell against the USD. Earlier the dollar index basket (USDX) closed the trades at the mark of 87.97. The pair EUR/USD showed the moderate upward trend during the day amid the US positive ISM production index release. The manufacturing sector business activity was better in November than the traders had expected despite the decline compared with the previous month.

The sterling decreased against the dollar on the yesterday trades. The positive UK manufacturing sector PMI indices release let "bears" to close short positions. The manufacturing purchasing managers’ index has been growing for two months in a row, but it is early to speak about the negative trend change - the annual trend is still downward. Traders are tired of pound sales and they decided to close the "shorts" on Monday amid the UK and the US negative yield spreads expansion.

The yen continues to decrease against the dollar. Earlier the pair USD/JPY showed the quotations moderate decrease after the new seven year high set. The positive UK manufacturing sector PMI indices release for November allowed the bulls to recover some lost ground. The US is still encouraging traders with the positive macroeconomic statistics and in these terms does not allow the Japanese yen to strengthen its position.




Technical analysis

The trend line of 1.2400 retest is more likely to lead to the strong price support level 1.2300 decrease.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

We received the UK and the US manufacturing sector business optimism release for November. Both reports came out better than the forecasted medians, but if we analyze the average annual dynamics, the US has a clear advantage for the last five months. The UK inflation expectations are still restrained - the 10-year bond yields are at the level of 1.91%.

Trading recommendations

The buyers need to break above 119.20 for a steady growth.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The dollar index rebounded from the five year high amid the overvalued US dollar speculation. However, the dollar resumed its growth now.

Over the past three months the dollar rose by 6.8% that was the highest result among the ten major currencies of the economically developed countries.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

04.12.2014

Fundamental analysis

The US dollar has strengthened its position against the euro and the yen - the dollar index basket (USDX) closed the trades at the mark of 88.63 near the four year high. The bears used the pair EUR/USD quotations growth to open short positions at the beginning of the week. Yesterday we again observed the German and the US bond spreads expansion. The FOMC representative Fisher pointed out that the monetary authorities are ready to reject the phrase "for considerable time" concerning the monetary policy. It should be noted that Fisher is traditionally the earlier federal funds rate increase supporter and it is not a surprise for the market.

The pound recovered some losses. Earlier the UK construction sector PMI index release has shown the lowest value for the last twelve months that with Gilts and Treasury 10-year bond yields increase sent the pair GBP/USD to knockout. The traders systematically sold the pound and against this negative background the quotations decreased. This decrease was followed by the pound growth.

The Japanese stock market came out the two-week consolidation. The Japan salaries report came below the traders’ expectations. With the US trading session opening we observed demand for corporate bonds that also supported the US dollar. Against this positive background bulls were able to break through the 119th figure.




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The ADP and ISM employment releases will lay the foundation for the Friday Non-Farm report. The leading investment bank economists from the Wall Street expect the both indicators decrease in comparison with the previous month, but now traders do not intend to buy actively the euro.

The pair broke through the support level of 1.2400 and fell to the new minimum at the level of 1.2300.

The price is finding the first support at 1.2300, the next one is at 1.2200. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2400, the next one is at 1.2500.

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 shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement and form a “Dead Cross”. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

The pai need to break below 1.2300 for a steady growth. The way to the mark 1.2200 will be opened after this breakthrough.



Pound

General overview

Markit Economics the center of macroeconomic research will publish the UK final release - this time we will receive the services sector business activity data. The UK average salary increase points out to the increased consumer activity, but the GfK consumer confidence indicator does not confirm such a positive picture.

The level of 1.5660 is a strong support that was rebounding sellers upwards the whole last month. The pair is trading above this level now.

The price is finding the first support at 1.5660, the next one is at 1.5550. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5870, the next one is at 1.5950.

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

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

Trading recommendations

After the trend line 1.5660 breakthrough down the way to the support 1.5550 will be opened.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

We observed a steady demand on the Japanese stock market that encouraged bulls to break through the 119th figure. We can expect the data release at the level of forecasted medians from the US macroeconomic releases with small deviations that can cool down the bulls. We observe the Japan and the US bond yields expansion on the bond market that also points out to the upward trend development.

The trade is without change within this trading instrument. The buyers have been rising for the third week the price towards the upward channel and at the lower volumes that can be clearly seen on the daily chart.

The price is finding the first support at 119.20, the next one is at 118.00. The price is finding the resistance at 120.40.

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

Trading recommendations

If the price fixates above the level of 119.20, it may continue the upward trend in the short term. The potential target is 120.40.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The dollar index hit to the five-year high, on the eve of the important economic releases publication that could lead to an increase in speculation about monetary tightening in the United States. Against this background, the franc recorded a significant decline.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9750, the next one is at 0.9680. The price is finding the resistance at 0.9800.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

09.12.2014

Fundamental analysis

The dollar decreased at the beginning of the week. Earlier the dollar strengthened against all its major competitors. The US employment data supported the US dollar in November.

The US labor market release has certainly become the main event of the previous week. Despite the fact that all the key leading indicators pointed out to the non-farm payrolls decline- we got the maximum growth levels since May 2010. In November employment growth totaled 321 thousand that is much better than traders had expected. The overall unemployment rate remained unchanged - at the level of 5.8%. It should also be noted the average hourly wage increase by 0.4% which can cause the household spending increase.

Positive data formed a strong a strong economic growth foundation in the 4th quarter which further increased the US dollar supporters. The dollar strengthened along the entire market – the USDX index closed at the mark of 89.33 and came close to its eight year high. At the end of the trading day the pair EUR/USD and the pair GBP/USD increased and the pair USD/JPY decreased from the new maximum.

Taking into consideration that other region news will not be released we can consider the foreign exchange market lower activity. However, the impression produced by the US employment data can extend their impact on the market for some time.




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

Monday was not rich with important macroeconomic statistics. It is necessary to pay attention to the Germany industrial production report.

There was the German industry volume orders increase by 2.5% in October that points out to the positive manufacturing sector data output. In the light of this, the European single currency can get some support, but we cannot on the strong demand.

After a short-term quotations growth traders will open short positions.

The price is finding the first support at 1.2300, the next one is at 1.2200. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2400, the next one is at 1.2500.

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

Trading recommendations

The approach to the resistance level of 1.2400 may lead to a price rebound down. The potential rebound target is the support level of 1.2200.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The UK and the United States will not please traders with interesting macroeconomic releases. In this regard, traders will focus their attention on the bond market dynamics. The Treasury and Gilts 10-year bond yields have grown again after the negative labor market release that is a bearish factor for the British pound. The last trading week closed on the minimum value over the past 13 months points out to the steady bearish trend.

The price is finding the first support at 1.5660, the next one is at 1.5550. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5760, 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.

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

Trading recommendations

The downward movement will be continued. The pair may go to 1.5550 soon.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The personal consumption significant reduction was caused by the spring sales tax rate increase. That event has had a serious affect on the economic growth. The Japan and the US stock exchanges show a positive trend after the US strong employment release and against this background, we should expect the bullish trend continuation.

The price is finding the first support at 120.40, the next one is at 119.40. The price is finding the resistance at 121.60.

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

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

10.12.2014

Fundamental analysis

The US dollar was under pressure amid the partial profit taking on long positions - the dollar index basket (USDX) finished the trading day at the mark of 89.14. From all the published macroeconomic releases we should pay attention to the Germany industrial production report that showed an increase by 0.2% in October. The German and the US Treasuries bond yields have once again expanded, indicating the bearish sentiment presence within the major currency pairs.

The pair GBP/USD repeated the pair EUR/USD fate we observed profit-taking on short positions. The pound strengthened namely on technical factors – there was no fundamental prerequisites for the quotations growth. On the contrary, the negative UK and the US 10-year bond yields expansion points out to the bearish trend continuation. However, we should always understand that before the trend continuation often is a technical correction when institutional investors fix the partial profit taking and then again increase their portfolios at the attractive levels.

The final Japan GDP data for the 3rd quarter were revised into the negative region to the level of -0.5% that confirms the presence of severe structural problems in the Japan economy. Within the pair USD/JPY we observed the "longs" closure and the quotations reduction. The US and Japan stock markets showed the same weakness that also put pressure on the US dollar. The pair dollar/yen has significantly strengthened for the recent weeks and the technical correction is already overdue.




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The traders’ attention will be focused on the bond market dynamics. Yesterday the Brent oil set a new five-year low that again increases the downside risks for the euro area inflation. Against this background we have observed the US and Germany bond yields expansion that is a negative factor for the single European currency.

From the technical point of view the bearish trend is still relevant. The upward correction was formed in the short term.

The price is finding the first support at 1.2300, the next one is at 1.2200. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.2400, the next one is at 1.2500.

There is a confirmed and a weak 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 indicator is in a neutral territory. The price is increasing.

Trading recommendations

We expect the 1.2400 line break that will open the way for the buyers to 1.2500.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

The British pound showed strength amid the partial profit taking on short positions. The UK inflation expectations reduction with sales on the commodity market will form a stable downward trend.

The strong level of 1.5660 did not have time to be a strong level after last Friday it was broken through downwards. In the light of the lower volumes there was a reversal breakthrough.

The price is finding the first support at 1.5660, the next one is at 1.5550. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5760, the next one is at 1.5870.

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

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

Trading recommendations

The potential growth target is the resistance level of 1.5760.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

We can expect the moderate quotations decline towards 120.50 / 120.20 amid the technical correction on the Japanese stock market. Near 17 564 the Nikkei 225 stock index can find a demand that also will support the US dollar. The positive correlation between the two instruments is still strong enough due to the ultra-loose monetary policy pursued by the Bank of Japan.

There was the price rebound downwards from the rising channel upper bound of 121.80. Amid the low volume sellers have been reducing the price for the second day in a row.

The price is finding the first support at 119.20, the next one is at 118.00. The price is finding the first resistance at 120.40, the next one is at 121.60.

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 a horizontal 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

The downward movement will be continued. The pair may go to 118.00 soon.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

The pair is under pressure amid the US Treasury bond yields decrease. The pair potential reduction is limited by the franc sales in the decreasing franc/yen, the Switzerland unexpected consumer price index decrease by 0.1% in November against the forecast of 0.0% and the extremely loose monetary policy by the Swiss National Bank.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9680, the next one is at 0.9620. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9750, the next one is at 0.9800.

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

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

Trading recommendations

The pair is correcting now. We expect the new growth. We advise to long with the first target - 0.9750. When the pair consolidates above the first target, we can open deals to the level of 0.9750.

"Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

11.12.2014

Fundamental analysis

The US dollar was again under pressure - the dollar index basket (USDX) finished the trading day at the mark of 88.58. At the moment the dollar index fell below the strong support level of 88.19, but at the end of the trading day it was able to recover some of its lost ground. The pair EUR/USD was in demand most of the day amid the short positions closure. There are a lot of market short positions and in this regard we have seen a volatility spike within the euro/dollar. However, after the London banks closure there was a reversal.

The UK October negative industrial release encouraged bears to open the short positions within the pair GBP/USD and at the moment quotations reached the level of 1.5630, but traders sold the US dollar along the entire market that also supported the demand for the British pound. The pair could reach the level of 1.5718 during the trades.

The Japanese yen significantly devalued last week and it is not surprising that traders started to unload their portfolios closing "longs". It should be noted that the correction within the pair USD/JPY was formed and impressive sales on the US and Japan stock markets only increased the downward pressure on the US dollar.




Technical analysis

Euro (EUR)

General overview

The correctional movement within the single European currency is coming to its logical conclusion and tomorrow when the United States will publish the retail sales release for November, we can expect the demand for the US dollar. The bond market dynamics also is showing a neutral background.

There was a downward trend line short-term testing of 1.2400 amid the increased volume. The trend testing was followed by the impulse price rebound downwards.

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 non-confirmed and a weak 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 horizontal movement and form a “Golden Cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

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

Trading recommendations

The approach to the level of 1.2500 may lead to a price rebound down. The potential rebound targets are the support levels of 1.2400, 1.2300.



Pound (GBP)

General overview

Bulls tried to develop a corrective movement, using a profit-taking on the short positions on the financial institutions part.

The UK industrial production report for October disappointed traders with its weak data - instead of the growth rate we observed a decline by 0.1%. This release supports the BoE’s 4th quarter slowdown forecast.

The British pound is slowly correcting towards the downward trend line of 1.5760 that is the key support for the bearish trend.


The price is finding the first support at 1.5660, the next one is at 1.5550. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5760, the next one is at 1.5870.

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

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

Trading recommendations

The level of 1.5760 testing is more likely to lead to the rebound downwards.



Yen (JPY)

General overview

The traders’ attention will be focused on the US and Japan stock markets dynamics amid the empty macroeconomic calendar. Yesterday S & P500 and the Nikkei 225 stock indices came to the strong support that can encourage bulls for opening long positions.

The support level of 119.20 breakthrough was amid the very high volume. The pair continued its falling after this support break.

The price is finding the first support at 118.00, the next one is at 117.00. The price is finding the first resistance at 119.20, the next one is at 120.40.

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

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

Trading recommendations

The buyers need to break above 120.40 for a steady growth. The way to the mark 121.60 will be opened after this breakthrough.



Franc (CHF)

General overview

In the evening the Swiss Franc was able to recover the fall by 50% against the dollar.

The dollar suffered losses against the most major currencies after another collapse in energy prices, triggering speculations that the Fed can hold off raising interest rates without fear of inflationary pressures.

The price is finding the first support at 0.9620, the next one is at 0.9560. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9680, the next one is at 0.9750.

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

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

Trading recommendations

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