    Forex Technical Analysis EUR/USD 2013-09-17

    Upside resumption drove the currency pair to drew resistance line at 1.3386 slightly below the 7-month high at 1.3450. Prices are above the 10, 20 and 50 SMA suggesting bulls are stronger than otherwise.

    Looking at the oscillators, MACD just crossed the zero line indicating uptrend is gaining chances, however the Average Directional Index is below 25 line concluding that any trend is weak. Lastly, the Commodity Channel Index rose above 100 and still has room for peak at 175, meaning that the positive structure may rise further.

    Therefore we would expect the EURUSD to advance towards 1.3450 before it makes any correction weighed by key resistance and upper Bollinger band.

    Forex Technical Analysis AUD/USD 2013-09-18

    The currency pair has been neutral in near term, extending in the last trading sessions in 0.9386/0.9284 sideways area. Nevertheless, in the longer term is in an uptrend as indicated by the surging trend line and above the SMAs, who are currently providing natural downside hurdles.

    Looking at the oscillators we get mixed signals, firstly Stochastic rose earlier this week in overbought zone providing some contrarian signal but the MACD and RSI (14) are not so revealing. We consider that the AUDUSD would continue its steady formation and we are currently limiting our trading position ahead of FOMC.

    The currency pair sharply moved higher on Fed’s decision to keep asset purchases unchanged. Interestingly, even though fundamental developments triggered upside wave, prices found resistance at a technical level at 261.8% Fibonacci extension of 1.5715 to 1.5432, at 1.6164 and is now entering in corrective mood. In addition, the uptrend remains firm as indicated by the surging line.

    Overbought oscillators, like RSI (14) that went up to 80 and Stochastic climbing above previous peaks line at 85, are suggesting that prices are more likely to retrace. Therefore we would expect a corrective dive towards 1.5885 in the following trading sessions.

    Forex Technical Analysis USD/CHF 2013-09-20

    Downside bias is strong in the pair’s daily pattern and already dropped at support at 0.9084, breaching lower Bollinger Band. In addition, SMAs are above prices coupled by a steep falling trend line favoring further weakness. However, we must keep in mind that this sharp downward move was a result of Fed’s decision not to tighten monetary policy meaning that US dollar's weakness could not be sustainable, unless more negative news for US dollar come out.

    Looking at oscillators, we can easily observe that Stochastic and Williams are oversold. Therefore in our view the USDCHF is likely to make a correction towards 0.9149 or even higher and then we would reconsider our projection for the market.

    Downside bias has already driven the currency pair lower in today’s trading and as the falling trend line suggests the pair could go even lower towards support at 61.8% of 97.75 to 99.66, at 98.50. At that level, we observe previous lows as well as the 200 SMA, thus appears to be a strong support.

    Looking at the oscillators, MACD is neutral fluctuating around zero line but Stochastic is entering oversold area with limited free space to the negative side, therefore we cannot anticipate much downside today and tomorrow. Furthermore, in the longer term a symmetrical triangle is forming with lower highs and higher lows which could provide a direction and target price on the breakout.

    In the longer term we can observe that the penetration of the “failure swing” neckline at 1.0241 was not credible since in the weekly chart did not close below that level, instead it bounced back above that creating a spike. We could consider this as a “bear trap” in the daily chart or a fake break in the weekly chart as it is shown below.

    SMA 50 provided support to the currency pair and induced it to return back up failing to close also below surging trend line in the weekly. MACD remains above zero line reinforcing the weakening up trend, whle OsMA is bearish but near previous troughs line. We would expect the pair to remain above the support at 1.0180 unless we have another round of substantially negative news for US dollar, with next resistance target at 1.0341.

    Upper Bollinger band weighed on the currency pair coupled by overbought Stochastic and Commodity Channel Index being above 175 line, thus resistance line was drawn at 1.3562. Prices have retreated afterwards reaching almost support at 1.3450, increasing validity to uptrend pattern and previous bullish breakout.

    At the moment CCI has a downward direction and OsMA is declining after reaching previous peaks line suggesting bearishness, however key support at 1.3450 make as cautious to further lows. In our consideration corrective move could go lower in the immediate term towards 1.3372 but we are cautious on that since medium term outlook is bullish thus we prefer to wait for upside resumption either at 1.3450 or 1.3372.

    The currency pair was overextended up as was indicated by OsMA and Stochastic, thus it eventually drew a resistance line at 0.9505 and then softened to support at 0.9332. Oscillators have reset from overbought zones and therefore they do not hurdle resumption of the upside.

    The “double bottom” trading pattern formed between 0.9230/0.8841 range suggests that the medium term trend has reversed to positive. First target at 161.8% Fibonacci extension around 0.9464 achieved and now potentially looking towards 261.8% level however before that the 50.0% of 1.0578 to 0.8841, at 0.9707 may place a lid on prices.

    Downside bias remains strong with prices sliding early on Monday to fresh eight-month low at 0.9022 and drawing a support line there with the lower Bollinger also placing a downside hurdle. Moreover, prevailing trend is negative as indicated by the falling trend line.

    Looking at the oscillators, MACD is below zero confirming weakness of the price pattern while there is now indication of contrarian signals. Therefore we would expect prices to continue under selling pressure and likely to make a new low in the following trading, heading towards 261.8% of 0.9083 at 0.9136, at 0.8992.

    Surging trend line was breached in earlier trading increasing potential for weakness in the currency pair. In addition, prices formed a “failure swing” pattern with neckline at 97.74 with 100 and 50 SMA weighing on prices, however today they returned back above the 97.74 underpinned by some macro events.

    Concerning oscillators,MACD dropped into negative territory and RSI (14) is down trending suggesting downside bias. We consider that negative sentiment has strengthened although bulls still hold their ground due to recent return above the “failure swing” neckline.

    Our opinion based on technical signs lean towards downward enhancement toward 96.79, where the 161.8% of 97.74 to 99.66 is also nearly located coupled by 200 SMA.

    Upside bias drove prices to resistance where 50 and 100 SMAs consolidate just below the 50.0% Fibonacci retracement of 1.0563 to 1.0180, at 1.0363. Previously we saw the currency pair forming a near double top pattern and breaching neckline at 1.0243 but now the pair has climbed back to 1.0340, providing signs that is trading in a wide range.

    Looking at oscillators, Stochastic has been in earlier trading in the overbought zone providing a mild contrarian signal, coupled by SMAs weighing on prices and MACD being negative suggesting negative trend. However, MACD has crossed its signal line from below, partially offseting its bearishness. We consider chances are favoring in the immediate term reversal to negative bias and shifting focus toward 1.0243.

    The currency pair rose to fresh 8-month peak after breaching cap at 1.3562 yesterday. Rising structure remains strong as indicated by surging trend lines with the most recent trend line being steeper suggesting upside is strengthening. Moreover, as you can observe all SMAs remain below prices not even providing any indication of short-term reversal.

    Concerning indicators, Commodity Channel Indexis upwardly moving rising above 100 and still has room until previous crests line. In addition, ADX indicates that bullish trend is strong and valid.

    Therefore, we would expect the EURUSD to continue its upside toward 161.8% of 1.3450 to 1.3101, at 1.3661, followed by next resistance at 1.38.

    The AUDUSD found support at 0.9278 where the 100 SMA is located and resumed its upside as we have expected and currently is moving towards cap at 0.9527. Tentative surging trend line is indicating that positive structure is more likely to continue.
    Our view that the pair would initially reach resistance 0.9527 and then likely to breach it targeting 161.8% of 0.9527 to 0.9278, at 0.9679 is also backed by oscillators.

    Negative bias strengthened in earlier trading due to risk appetite gradually fading, leading the currency pair near support at 161.8% of 0.9145 to 0.9457, at 0.8954. On Friday we saw a bounce up as prices approached a key support level but also due to investors hoping to a breakthrough of U.S. fiscal deadlock.

    Falling trend line together with all SMAs being above prices suggest that downward trend is valid, which is confirmed by Average Directional Index. However, the CCI creates some concerns due to falling below -80 line but there is still room to go lower while Stochastic does not provide any contrarian signal.

    Valid surging trend line indicates that the currency pair positive structure is more likely to continue coupled by SMAs being below prices. Moreover, prices have recently found resistance at 1.6263 near 161.8% extension of 1.6162 to 1.5948, at 1.6300, thus we consider the 1.6300/1.6263 a cap zone.

    The Average Directional Index confirms the strength of the positive structure however the short-term OsMA and RSI(14) suggests that the bias is negative. We conclude that prices are more likely to retrace even lower towards rising trend line at 1.5948 before we see attempt to resume upside.

    The currency pair downward structure seems damaged by the near term bullish “failure swing” that drove to resistance near the 50 SMA at 97.46. The down trend though still appears strong with a valid falling trend line providing a natural resistance coupled by upper Bollinger band at 97.75.

    Concerning oscillators the Commodity Channel Index rose above previous peaks line at 180, OsMA approaches our subjective upper level of previous highs, while MACD is still negative even though above its signal line.

    The Canadian dollar weakened against the greenback with the USDCAD currency pair edging at 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of 1.0563 to 1.0180, at 1.0415. In the longer term we saw a double top formation, breaching neckline at 1.0243, followed by a “bear trap” formation which introduced rising prices.

    Observing oscillators, the RSI(14) is positively structured confirming rising prices, while CCI is deep into overbought zone exceeding 200 line creating concerns over bullish potentials but is not confirmed by Stochastic.

    Tentative soaring trend line is still valid indicating growing development keeps its potential for higher prices. Double bottom trading pattern as well as 100 and 50 SMAs are below prices and moving towards a Golden Cross, all that increase chances for a bull ran. Nonetheless, prices seem unable to reach resistance at 0.9527 as they are extending into consolidation around 0.9463 in the near term.
    OsMA is now turning into positive ground strengthening the price pattern signals for upside possibilities, backed by a short-term RVI that is growing and remains above its smoothing line.

    The negatively structured currency pair has found support at 0.8954 in the last two weeks and bounced up limited by cap at 0.9145 which was previously support. Prices have breached short-term SMA but are now creating doji candlesticks around 20 SMA with 50 SMA still way above.

    Short-term oscillators are suggesting downside resumption as the Stochastic entered the overbought zone in a down trending market indicating that buyers have likely lost their power, confirmed by Williams percent range that have also rose into overbought territory and is now crossing -20 line from above.

    The longer term resistance zone at 1.6335/1.6253 where previous peaks formed, drove the pair below 20 and 10 SMA at 23.6% of 1.4828 to 1.6253, at 1.5919. In the last two weeks a possible reversal also increased downside chances, however surging trend line remains solid as prices failed to breach support at 1.5919, backed by 50 SMA providing an extra support at 1.5805.
    Looking at the oscillators, RSI(14) has correctly provided a bearish divergence as prices consequently declined but at the moment is neutral.
