    Forex Technical & Market Analysis FXCC Sep 13 2013

    Countdown for QE taper fireworks is on!

    The judgment day for the Fed, Sept 17, is nearing, and the market is preparing accordingly for what may represent the most important monetary policy decision taken in years, as the start of QE taper gets kick-started. Even if the next FOMC meeting comes on the back of a rather disappointing NFP past Friday, the communication strategy carried out by Chairman Ben Bernanke & Co. so far suggest that some sort of light taper should be expected, or else the sell-off in the USD might be one that make headlines all over the world. According to Adam Button, Editor at Forexlive, "The market has settled on $10 billion as the most-likely size for the Fed’s taper next week", anticipating that "larger and the dollar will rally hard, smaller and it will fall."

    Meanwhile, Treasury traders seem to be perceive the taper being priced in less than 10bln, which makes a bullish case for a stronger USD for those supporting odds for a more aggressive taper. If this scenario happens to be true, some long USD plays vs other G10 currencies such as the NZD, EUR or even the CAD, might be a great play based on this assumption. As Button notes: "I think it’s clear that a taper is coming but the Fed could still change its mind on the size and the messages that accompany it. Two reports in the days ahead could change their thinking: retail sales on Friday and the CPI on Monday."

    MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

    Upwards scenario: Possibility of market strengthening is seen above the immediate resistive barrier at 1.3286 (R1). Clearance here would suggest next interim target at 1.3302 (R2) and then final aim locates at 1.3317 (R3). Downwards scenario: Further downside extension might face next supportive barrier at 1.3256 (S1). Clearance here is required to open the way towards to interim target at 1.3240 (S2) and any further price regress would then be targeting 1.3225 (S3).

    Resistance Levels: 1.3286, 1.3302, 1.3317
    Support Levels: 1.3256, 1.3240, 1.3225

    OUTLOOK SUMMARY : Down
    TREND CONDITION : Downward penetration
    TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bearish
    IMPLIED VOLATILITY : Medium

    Upwards scenario: GBPUSD tested negative side recently, however we see potential to test resistive barrier at 1.5812 (R1) later on today. Successful penetration above that level would suggest next intraday targets at 1.5838 (R2) and 1.5864 (R3) later on today. Downwards scenario: In terms of technical levels, risk of price depreciation is seen below the support level at 1.5775 (S1). Loss here would suggest to monitor marks at 1.5750 (S2) and 1.5725 (S3) as possible intraday targets.

    Resistance Levels: 1.5812, 1.5838, 1.5864
    Support Levels: 1.5775, 1.5750, 1.5725

    OUTLOOK SUMMARY : Up
    TREND CONDITION : Upward penetration
    TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bearish
    IMPLIED VOLATILITY : Medium

    Upwards scenario: Further price appreciation is a likely scenario for today according to the technical readings. If the pair manages to clear the barrier at 100.08 (R1), we would suggest next targets at 100.24 (R2) and 100.40 (R3). Downwards scenario: Our next supportive barrier lies at 99.72 (S1). Break here is required to enable downside expansion towards to our intraday targets at 99.54 (S2) and 99.36 (S3) in potential.

    Resistance Levels: 100.08, 100.24, 100.40
    Support Levels: 99.72, 99.54, 99.36
