    Forex Technical & Market Analysis FXCC May 20 2013

    Bearish developments on EUR/USD charts continue to take shape

    It was a rough week for the EUR/USD, as continued speculation of the Fed tapering QE purchases and worries of economic growth in Europe continued to put pressure on the pair throughout the week. When all was said and done, the pair finished the week down 0.90% to close at 1.2838. Market participants will be focusing on a number reports this week including testimony from Fed Chairman Bernanke, as well as speeches by some regional Fed officials. According to Greg Gibbs, FX Trading Strategist at RBS,“the market will be looking closely at the Fed commentary this week. Bernanke's testimony to Congress on Wednesday is the main focal point, but there are important speeches by doves Evans and Dudley before then. As key supporters of maintaining the current $85bn pace of asset purchases, any shift in their tone will be seen as evidence that the consensus and Bernanke's views have shifted.”

    He went on to add, “the commentary by Fed Watcher Hilsenrath just over a week ago and by a Fed dove Williams on Thursday last week has got the market thinking about potential for QE tapering in the summer, which puts into play the 19 June, 31 July or 18 September meetings. The June meeting includes a Bernanke press conference and staff projects, as does the September meeting.”

    Forex Technical Analysis EURUSD :
    MARKET ANALYSIS – Intraday Analysis


    Upwards scenario: Bullish market sentiment is slightly improved yesterday however further appreciation needs to clear barrier at 1.2855 (R1) to enable our interim target at 1.2882 (R2) and then any further gains would be limited to last resistance at 1.2908 (R3). Downwards scenario: If the price manages to overcome our next support barrier at 1.2818 (S1), we expect to see further market decline towards to our next target at 1.2800 (S2) and then next stop could be found at 1.2780 (S3) mark.

    Resistance Levels: 1.2855, 1.2882, 1.2908
    Support Levels: 1.2818, 1.2800, 1.2780

    Forex Technical Analysis GBPUSD :


    Upwards scenario: Next immediate resistive barrier is seen at 1.5209 (R1). If instrument gains momentum on the upside and manage to overcome it we would focus on the intraday targets at 1.5241 (R2) and 1.5276 (R3) in potential. Downwards scenario: Any downside extension is limited now to the next support level at 1.5163 (S1). Break here is required to open a route towards to next target at 1.5141 (S2) and then any further easing would be targeting final support at 1.5117 (S3).

    Resistance Levels: 1.5209, 1.5241, 1.5276
    Support Levels: 1.5163, 1.5141, 1.5117

    Forex Technical Analysis USDJPY :


    Upwards scenario: Possible upwards formation is limited now to resistive measure at 102.87 (R1). A break above it would suggest next intraday target at 103.29 (R2) and if the price holds its momentum we can expect price increase towards to final resistance at 103.75 (R3). Downwards scenario: Pair looks likely to test our supportive means today. Devaluation below the support at 102.62 (S1) would initiate bearish pressure. On the way our next interim support at 102.39 (S2) en route to final target at 102.07 (S3).

    Resistance Levels: 102.87, 103.29, 103.75
    Support Levels: 102.62, 102.39, 102.07
