The sterling pound continued its weak trading activity during yesterday’s session as the fears and confusion surrounding the Brexit process as well as other such concerns continue to weigh down on the GBP, a trend which has been going on for the past weeks. The GBP/USD pair was unable to increase in value in spite of the marked dollar weakness during the previous trading session. Market analysts are speculating that the currency pair is currently locked within a highly bearish stance and could possibly incur more losses in the coming days.

Stock prices fell yesterday due to uncertainties surrounding the current position of commodity prices, particularly crude oil prices, as well as Brexit-related concerns. A lot of traders and investors are saying that the market might be well-headed for a hard Brexit, which means that the negotiations between UK leaders and EU officials might prove to be much harder than expected, and also implies that the UK might be unable to obtain free market zone access to the rest of the European Union once they formally leave the eurozone. In addition, Scotland seems to be taking measures to leave the UK in protest to Brexit, which means that the sterling pound is more likely to decrease further in value.

For today’s session, the current market trends are expected to continue since there are no scheduled releases from the UK and the US. The sterling pound is still expected to fail to bounce back from its recent low levels due to the various negative economic factors which continue to affect the state of the pound.

The positive data from the Investor Confidence in Euroland had strengthened the single European currency yesterday. While, the U.S dollar was able to regain its losses last Tuesday as the Fed told to support the rate hike in 2017. The traders look forward to the ongoing status for Trump’s first conference scheduled today.

Moreover, the momentum of EU appears to be short-lived having touched the 1.0600 level amid the morning trades on Tuesday. After the daily high was set at 1.0626, the EURUSD moved back under 1.0600 in the post session of the European open.

The sellers drove the EUR downwards prior the opening of the New York trading. As shown in the 4-hour chart, the price resumed its development on top of the 200-EMA which considered to be pair’s support. The 200 and 100-EMAs were trending flat while the 50-EMA headed upwards. Resistance entered the 1.0600 region, support is at 1.0550 handle. The technicals gradually approached the lower positive territory.

The MACD histogram declined which confirmed weak position for the buyers. The RSI oscillator hovered around the undervalued zone.

According to forecast, the bearish pressure will be renewed in the near-term. A rapid decline below the 1.0550 mark would indicate further vulnerability for the pair. The next bearish target is posted at the 1.0500 level.

The British pound had maintained its present stance on the back of the remarks made by PM Theresa May. The hard-Brexit continue to affect the investor’s sentiment while the attention of investors was focused on the data release of Industrial and Manufacturing Production.
Bears remains to dominate the market and their holds are becoming tighter.

Furthermore, the sterling continued to weaken on Tuesday followed by the short consolidation amid the Asian hours. The sellers moved the cable downwards and touched the 1.2100 level in the London session.

The 4-hour chart showed the price stayed below the moving averages and further cope with the consolidation period before the opening of the NY session. The MAs preserved its bearish trend. Resistance plunged into the 1.2200, support lies at 1.2100 region. The technicals shifted towards a lower point.

The MACD indicator had a dip which favors strength for the sellers. The RSI stick around the oversold levels.

The GBP seems oversold in the near-term which allows reversal of losses. The probable minor recovery around 1.2200 provides an opportunity for short positions. The pair may not change its movements in the near future even though the readings suggests an oversold condition.

The sellers have the chance to regain its seat in case the trend will reached 1.2100 and lead the cable through 1.2000.

The Aussie presented a sluggish stance yesterday as the Retail sales data showed negative results. The pessimistic input for the Chinese CPI had affected the currency as well.
Moreover, an attempt to surpass the 0.7350 level were unsuccessful.

Buyers advanced to 0.7385 where AUD/USD found some fresh offers and declined to 0.7350. Having tested the aforesaid level, sellers resumed its struggle to push the price downwards.

During the morning trades, the price tested 200-EMA as indicated in the 4-hour chart. It further stalls the bull’s movement to continue forward as it acted as the spot’s resistance.

The 200 and 100-EMAs are neutral while 50-EMA edged higher as mentioned in the same timeframe. Resistance holds 0.7400 level, support is seen at 0.7350 region .

MACD indicator dwindled and implied weak position against the buyers. RSI consolidated around the undervalued readings.

As the forecast says, bearish bias kept prevailing in the market. In the most probable scenario, if the price focus below the 0.7350 support level the short-term downtrend could possibly continue. The next target of the sellers are marks 0.7250 and 0.7300.

Just like the majority of other currency pairs, the USD/CAD pair had ranged and consolidated all throughout the rest of the previous trading session without any definite direction. The traders and investors transacting in this particular pair seem to be uncertain with regards to its direction and is first making sure that the currency pair first takes a definitive step on its chosen direction before they do actual buying and selling with the USD/CAD pair. The general trend for the USD/CAD pair is expected to be on an upward direction, and corrections along the way should be seen as long opportunities.

During the previous trading session, oil prices took a turn for the worse as the agreements between oil producers failed to go as smoothly as originally planned, mostly due to the lack of proper implementation from both parties. As a result, the CAD was kept from rising value as oil prices subsequently crashed in value. This is why the CAD was unable to take advantage of the recent decrease in the USD’s value, and the Canadian dollar is now finding it difficult to make substantial progress in both directions,whether upward or downward.

There are no major news coming out from both the Canadian and US economy for today. However, Trump is scheduled to address the US in a press conference later today and the market will be relying on this particular address since this will be the determinant of the general direction of the US dollar. As for the USD/CAD pair, the currency pair would most likely be affected once Trump addresses how he will be handling the international neighbors of US, with Canada being one of them.

The sterling pound merely continued its previous activity of consolidation and ranging albeit with no clear direction as of the moment. The range of the GBP/USD is tightening further as we speak, and the market is expecting an explosion any time soon. However, this major event’s direction has yet to be seen but it can be assured that there is a movement by up to 300-400 pips. However, the risk for the GBP/USD pair is expected to remain in the downward direction due to the weak GBP and strong uptrend in the USD.

However, the recent strength of the USD is expected to be tested today during Trump’s press conference since the market will be closely monitoring Trump’s approach with regards to a number of issues. If Trump decides to take the diplomatic route, then this could trigger a boost in the value of the USD, thereby putting immense pressure on the GBP/USD pair, even though the sterling pound is still currently undergoing pressure from the various confusions surrounding the Brexit process.

The UK is set to release its manufacturing production data for today’s trading session, and this will be an indicator of whether the UK will be able to maintain its current trend of positive data releases which are not yet affected by the Brexit process. If this particular data comes out as negative, then this could increase the pressure on the sterling pound.

The USD/CAD pair exhibited additional corrections during yesterday’s trading sessions as the US dollar weakened significantly following the press conference of president-elect Donald Trump. The market initially expected Trump to give hints on his proposed economic, fiscal, and monetary policies but instead disappointed market players after he merely talked about his personal interests and his business enemies. This then caused the dismal drop in the value of the dollar. The stock market was able to recover slightly towards the end of the session, but the same could not be said for the US dollar.

As oil prices managed to regain its losses during yesterday’s session, this has proved to be good news for the Canadian dollar since this lended the CAD some much-needed support and has triggered the USD/CAD pair to reach just under 1.3200 before settling to 1.3150 points. The economic news release from Canada came out better than what the market expected, and since oil prices are now looking good, these are expected to provide susbstantial support for the CAD in the long run. The USD/CAD pair could possibly test the 1.3000 level due to the recent weakness in the USD

For today’s session, there are no major releases from the Canadian economy but we have the unemployment claims data from the US which will be released during the North American trading session. However, the most dominant market trend today would most likely still be the effects of the recently concluded press conference, and this is why the pair is possibly up for more weakness and volatility for today.

The US dollar took the spotlight yesterday as the market reacted wildly to Donald Trump’s press conference during the latter part of the New York trading session. The market was initially subdued during the London and Tokyo trading sessions since the market was generally looking forward to gauge Trump’s demeanor, as well as to decipher his administration’s plans for the next 4 years and to see whether Trump will actually be pushing through with his proposed policies during his campaign.

However, Trump went in for a very disappointing run as he displayed his usual tactlessness and brashness and even highlighted his desire to build a Mexican border within two years. This move was wholly unexpected by the market, and this caused the USD to crash and plummet across the board. The GBP/USD pair, which has been languishing in the bottom rungs of the market for the past 2 months, was able to immediately recover its losses and was able to push through 1.2200 points and even reached 1.2250 before finally settling at just under 1.2200 points.

Since there are no major news releases expected from the UK for today, the previous market trend is expected to dominate today’s trading sessions. The bulls could possibly profit from a solid upward move from the GBP/USD pair if the pound would be able to break through 1.2300. Otherwise, the currency pair could be merely subject to short-term corrections.

The USD has attempted to regain its losses against the Japanese yen during the previous trading session as the market went unaffected by a slew of highly positive economic data from China, namely Exports and Imports data, as well as the Chinese Trade Balance data. During the Tokyo trading session last Friday, the USD was able to regain its upward balance following its recent decline, while buyer strength manifested positive bid stances which caused the pair to exceed 115.00 points prior to the opening of the North American session. But this upward movement eventually lost its momentum which then caused the USD/JPY pair to drop back to lower than 115.00 points. Traders also induced the currency pair to drop further to 114.00 points during the middle of the New York trading session. The USD/JPY pair was able to test the 50 EMA in the hourly chart. Resistance levels for the USD/JPY is situated at 115.00, while support levels are expected to be at 114.00 points.

For the next trading session, the USD/JPY pair could possibly decrease further in value and could hit 114.00 up to 113.00 points unless buyer strength could help the currency pair to consolidate just above 116.00 points.

The USD regained its previous losses following the release of a highly positive Producer Price Index data, while the sterling pound dropped in value as a response to dollar strength and the recent uncertainties surrounding the Brexit process. The GBP/USD pair lost its momentum as it reached over 1.2100 during the early trading sessions last Friday. As the European trading session opened, the pound regained its losses and buyers induced the pricing of the currency pair to increase and reach 1.2200 points during the European session. However, the pair’s momentum faded almost immediately afterwards, with the GBP extending its losses up to 1.2118 points.

The moving averages for the currency pair were all able to sustain its bearish stance, and resistance levels for the GBP/USD pair are expected to be at 1.2200 points. Meanwhile, support levels are expected to be at 1.2100 points. The GBP/USD pair could revert back its losses if it manages to regain its strength at the 1.2200 trading range. If the currency pair will be able to exceed this particular value, then this could cause the bulls for the currency pair to drive the value of the pair towards 1.2300. On the other hand, if the pair drops and moves toward 1.2100, then this means that seller strength will be returning and will cause the pair’s price to plummet further towards 1.2000 points.

The release of economic data from the US last Friday lended some much needed support for the US dollar. The retail sales data dropped in value and failed to meet market expectations, while the data for the Producer Price Index came out on a highly positive note and exceeded market expectations. Meanwhile, the EUR continued to incur losses in spite of upbeat data coming from the European Union, such as the German Wholesale Price Index as well as the Spanish Consumer Price Index.

The euro tried climbing up during Friday’s session but was able to regain its upward bias during the Tokyo session after euro sellers encountered a price barrier at 1.0600 which then caused the EUR to drop in value. As the London session commenced, the EUR/USD pair rose and hit 1.0650 points, with the euro regaining all of its previous losses during the opening of the North American trading session. The price of the currency pair continued its climb and exceeded its moving averages as seen in the 4-hour chart. The 50 and 100 EMAs are currently pointing in an upward direction, while the 200 EMA stayed within neutral territory. Support levels for the EUR/USD are projected to be at 1.0600, while resistance levels are expected to be at 1.0650 points.

If the EUR/USD pair is unable to exceed 1.0650, then this could cause selling interest for the pair to return. However, if the pair drops and breaks through 1.0600 points, then traders are advised to monitor 1.0550 and 1.0500 points. The EUR/USD will only be able to recover if it is able to sustain its stance at 1.0650 points.

The USD/CAD remained to trade close on its range lows on the back of the dollar’s strength recovery. While the prices of oil appeared to have an optimistic result which assisted the CAD keep in the short term.

The pair plunge under the 1.3100 level following the extensive weakening of the dollar, however, it immediately found buying pressure which supported the pair to return on top of 1.3100.

Over the past few months, the USDCAD showed a consistent uptrend and every correction met a prompt and strong bounce which seems to be repetitive. The way towards the 1.400 medium target suggest a slow progress and the main uptrend supported the bulls to purchase every correction.

Recently, the pair have acquired more buyers and there are banks that started to advise their clients regarding the 1.40 target.

The strong Canadian data with a weak economy of the country is the reason why traders are directed to maintain a hard clean break under 1.3000 which signals that an uptrend has ended.
There are no major economic data from Canada for this day since it was a bank holiday in the United States. It is further expected for a consolidation and ranging close to the range lows today.

The GBP/USD closed the week with a sluggish stance and struggled to maintain its gains. These events put on some fears against the pound bulls because this will weigh over the Cable upon the return of dollar’s strength.

The pair stayed below the 1.2200 on Friday until the weekend took place which triggered indications for a hard Brexit. This caused for the pair to create a large gap and traded shortly under 1.2000.

The strong economic data of the UK shown for the previous months did not influenced the sterling’s value at all. However, it is deemed that the British currency is able to withstand its current situation and will accumulate gains afterwards. Looking forward, the bulls still needs to endure the worst impact as the bears tend to insurge. The hard Brexit cause risk and confusion for the investors which made them think twice prior pound purchase.

In the last two weeks, there are news about the UK's possibility to employ hard Brexit, whereas, PM May’s speech is highly anticipated within this week. This event brought the Britain’s economy a tough time but we believe the country will become much stronger eventually.

For today, we expect no new UK economic release and losses is further expected with a fundamental near-term target of 1.17.

A break higher than the minor resistance of 1.5007 is seen from 1.5235 level. This is followed by a next break at 1.5193 completes the second wave towards the 1.5837 third wave level. Beyond the third level indicates a long-term position while trying to confirm the latest correction completes the zig-zag correction. On the other hand, the support levels could go towards the 1.4778 level before the next unexpected surge comes in.

Currently the Resistance level of the pair comes in at 1.5007 then 1.5050 towards 1.5193 levels while the Support level is seen at 1.4841 then 1.4810 towards the 1.4778 levels. The Pivotal turn is at 1.4895 level with buying opportunity when the price breaks more than the 121.687 level.

The EUR/USD pair traded weakly during the previous trading session with the weak euro having more effect on the currency pair than the recent dollar weakness. The international economy is now very concerned with UK’s hard Brexit process, since this could spell disaster not only for UK but also for countries within the eurozone. Although the hard Brexit could have less negative effects for the UK, this could instead affect EU countries since most of them are doing business with UK, and the removal of a free trade zone with UK and the rest of the EU could become very disastrous for a lot of EU countries.

This was one of the reasons why the EUR/USD pair corrected largely during yesterday’s session and plummeted down to 1.0600 points yesterday and even went lower for some time. The currency pair could have experienced much larger corrections if not for the US bank holiday yesterday.

For today’s trading session, there are no important economic data coming from the eurozone but Theresa May will be speaking during the New York session with regards to the guidelines of the expected hard Brexit. May’s speech could have a negative effect on the value of the euro and traders are expected to take extra caution when it comes to trading with this particular currency pair.

The GBP/USD pair exhibited heightened volatility during the previous trading session as the dollar lost strength and the sterling pound regained much of its footing in the market. Theresa May’s speech yesterday helped in clearing up some of the murkier parts of the Brexit process, and this has helped in placating various investors and has minimized concerns surrounding the Brexit process, thereby increasing the value of the sterling pound. This has then prompted investors to pull out their funds from the USD, thereby causing the dollar to drop in value.

Theresa May has highlighted in her speech yesterday that the UK will indeed be going for a hard Brexit and will be eliminating any kind of access from the eurozone. However, the PM has reiterated that the UK government will be negotiating with eurozone leaders in order to have a different kind of trade relations with the European bloc. Since this has eliminated confusions surrounding Brexit matters, thereby increasing the pair’s volatility levels. The GBP/USD pair initially dipped to 1.2015 points prior to Theresa May’s speech but quickly climbed up to a daily high of 1.2414 points.

However, there are still a handful of concerns surrounding the Brexit process, and the expected invocation of Article 50 is also seen as a possibly risk for the stance of the currency pair as well as the UK economy. As such, these are expected to continuously pressure the GBP in the next few days.

For today’s session, UK will be releasing its claimant count change data as well as its average earnings data, while US will be releasing its CPI data later today. It remains to be seen whether these data sets would be continuing the string of good economic data during the past few days. If the UK data comes out as positive, then this push the pair upwards to 1.2500 points, although this might not be enough to actually push the currency pair beyond this particular barrier.

The Prime Minister of UK, Theresa May laid out few ground rules yesterday regarding the possible flow of the Brexit process. Global risks were also expected to lessen and in whatever time it might occur, it will likely weigh on the dollar.

The greenbacks were seen to be on its weaker stance prior this event that will hit the currency much harder. This will caused for the USD/CAD to test 1.3000 over and over, there is also a sudden solid bounce upwards.

The USD continued to suffer from the drawbacks due to the risky environment from Trump’s administration which continue to confuse traders and investors because of its vague plans.

Moreover, the expected thrice rate increase of the Fed will likely be supported by the dollar with the medium and long term, however the near-term risk that surround the new US government causes the dollar to soften.

Another test of lows is assumed to occur in case the Canadian data will present an optimistic result. Since the economic data from the region is relatively strong and identify whether this upbeat is from the BOC statement about rate policy or from the media conference of the BOC Governor.

Furthermore, the BOC is scheduled to hold its rate for today, in case the statement came in hawkish, the 1.3000 level are needed to test again.

The EUR received a much-needed boost from yesterday’s trading events, wherein the USD plummeted and weakened while the sterling pound regained its previous losses across the board. This has then caused the EUR/USD pair to break through the 1.0600 barrier after quite a time and even went up as high as 1.0700 points, where it traded momentarily before settling just below 1.0700 points.

In spite of the fact that Theresa May has indeed announced that the UK is headed for a hard Brexit process, the concerns surrounding this particular occurrence have somewhat diminished, prompting investors to pull out from the USD and onto high-risk areas such as the stock market. The US dollar has since then weakened, and the clarity of the Brexit process has helped in pushing the euro higher. Although the hard Brexit would most probably have an adverse effect on eurozone trades, the renewed clarity of the process has helped placate investors and has created upward support for the EUR/USD pair. The currency pair is now seen to possibly reach the 1.0850 trading region.

There are no major economic readings set to be released today from the eurozone, but the US will be releasing its Core CPI and CPI data during the New York session, and these will be closely monitored by investors since a string of good economic data could increase the chances of a Fed rate hike in the near future.

The JPY increased significantly in value against the USD after the majority of investors fled the USD after Donald Trump expressed his concerns that the US dollar might be becoming too strong for the US economy to handle. The US 10-year Treasury Yields plummeted to 2.307% during the early hours of yesterday’s trading session, possibly its lowest intraday levels since November 2016. This has then lended support for the bears of the USD/JPY pair after the currency pair traded at the lower regions of 112.67 points before making a slight recovery.

However, there came a slew of negative US data, such as the New York Empire State Manufacturing Index, which dropped to 6.5% from its previous reading of 9.0%. This reading is indicative of slower business growth in the region for this month. Since the USD/JPY was able to extend over 114.00 points, the currency pair is more than ready to extend sideways. The pair’s 4-hour chart shows that its momentum indicator retains its bearish stance and is still within the negative side of the chart, while RSI indicators for the currency pair are pointing to the downside. The 100 SMA for the USD/JPY pair has also lowered significantly.

Support levels for the USD/JPY are expected to manifest at the 112.65 points, while resistance levels could possibly appear once the pair hits 113.35 points.

The Australian Dollar presented some optimism compared with its U.S peer that receives support from the dynamic pricing of oil. The awaited data from the labour market is deemed to support the Aussie at the same time.

The tone of the market remains to be positive. The AUD/USD is confined on its 2-week highs near the 0.7550 level. The price hovered around a very tight range and tends to go into a lower position. The 4-hour chart showed the spot stick on top of the moving averages. The 100 and 50-EMAs preserved its bullish tone while 200-EMA is flat. Resistance hit 0.7550 mark, support is found at 0.7500 range.

MACD lied in the same level which confirmed buyer’s strength once again. The RSI is currently on the consolidation period and entered the overvalued zone.

Forecasts mentioned for a further short-term downward correction. In case the closing trades are set under 0.7750, the price will impose a sell signal. The possible target of the bears is 0.7500.
