      Daily analysis of EUR/JPY for March 26, 2018

      EUR/JPY
      The conditions in the market is quite choppy. Although the market is choppy, the bearish trend has been maintained.Price has been going southward since February 5, having lost almost 800 pips since then. Last week, there was a rally attempt in the context of an uptrend, which was halted once the supply zone at 131.50 had been tested.

      Further upward movement was effectively prevented. The market shed 250 pips following that, to test the demand zone at 129.00, and closed below the supply zone at 129.50. The expected weakness in EUR, as well as the bearish outlook on the market, may enable the demand zones at 129.00, 128.50, and 128.00 to be tested this week.

Currently, GBP/USD is facing off the resistance level of 1.4225, which is the last hurdle ahead of the 1.4269 level and if it manages to break above such area, the bulls could strengthen in the short-term.

      Daily analysis of USD/CHF for March 27, 2018


      USD/CHF
      A bearish signal has already been generated on the USD/CHF. Price has moved lower and it would move lower and lower again, reaching the support levels at 0.9400 and 0.9350. The market will continue to go in the opposite direction to the EUR/USD. A strong volatility is in the offing.
      There is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the 4-hour chart and it would likely become clearer and clearer as price journeys downwards, reaching one support level after another. The situation in the market would remain the same until another factor causes a strong rally.

      Daily analysis of USD/JPY for March 27, 2018

      USD/JPY
      There is a rally in the market – in the context of a downtrend. Price jumped on Monday, but that was not significant enough to threaten the overall bearish bias on the market. A movement above the supply level at 106.50 would cause a bearish bias to be threatened, but that would require a strong buying pressure.

      In the very short-term, things have become bullish. However, the medium-term bias remains bearish, unless price continues to rally from here. By then, the outlook on the market would have turned bullish.

      Daily analysis of EUR/JPY for March 27, 2018

      EUR/JPY
      A bullish signal (“buy” signal) has already been generated on this cross. Price rallied massively yesterday, rising from the demand zone at 129.50, and ramming into the supply zone at 131.50. This is a movement of over 200 pips. Further northwards movement is anticipated this week, and the supply zones at 132.00 and 132.50 would soon be reached.


      A Bullish Confirmation Pattern has been generated in the market, and that would become more and more significant as price moves higher and higher. Pullbacks along the way could be shallow because bulls are in control right now.

      Daily analysis of USD/CHF for April 2, 2018


      USD/CHF
      This bias on this currency trading instrument is bullish – but it is currently not a strong bias. Since testing the support level at 0.9200 (February 16), price has managed to gain about 360 pips. Last week, it managed to stay briefly above the resistance level at 0.9550, after which it closed below it again.

      Things will go upward when volatility arises. A rise in the market is expected this week, which would also be fueled by weakness in EURUSD. The resistance levels at 0.9550, 0.9600 and 0.9650 could be reached before the end of the week.


      Daily analysis of USD/JPY for April 2, 2018

      USD/JPY
      The market is expected to go downwards. The trading instrument is bearish in the long-term, and bullish in the short-term. There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, at least on a short-term basis. Price rose 220 pips last week, to test the supply level at 107.00, and then retraced below the supply level at 106.50.

      The supply level at 107.00 has thus become a major barrier for any bullish effort, as price goes downwards towards the demand levels at 106.00, 105.50 and 105.00. The outlook on JPY pairs is bearish for this week, and for this month, which means long trades are not recommended (except in a very short-term context). There will be great volatility on JPY pairs, which would most probably favor bears.

      Daily analysis of EUR/JPY for April 2, 2018

      EUR/JPY
      The EUR/JPY is bearish in the long-term, and rather neutral in the short-term. Price is currently choppy as things are now in a range. There is a supply zone at 132.00 and a demand zone at 130.00.

      As long as price saunters between these two zones, the short-term neutrality will hold. There is a higher probability that price will go southwards (in agreement with the long-term outlook) when a breakout does occur. There is still a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, and that would become more important as price goes further downwards, reaching other demand zones.

      Daily analysis of USD/CHF for April 3, 2018


      USD/CHF
      This trading instrument did not make any significant movement yesterday. The resistance level at 0.9550 is under siege and it is almost broken to the upside. As the EUR/USD is weakened further, the USD/CHF will go northwards, targeting the resistance levels at 0.9600 and 0.9650. A very strong buying pressure is needed to reach the resistance level at 0.9650.

      The market will go upward when volatility arises. A rise in the market is expected this week, which would also be fueled by weakness in the EURUSD. The resistance levels at 0.9550, 0.9600 and 0.9650 could be reached before the end of the week.


      Daily analysis of USD/JPY for April 3, 2018

      USD/JPY
      This pair made a slight bearish movement on April 2. There is still a weak Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, at least on a short-term basis. Further bearish movement would result in a confirmation of the recent bearish bias, while a movement to the upside will bring about a bullish bias on the market.

      This month, there will be great volatility on JPY pairs, which would most probably favor bears. The supply level at 107.00 has thus become a major barrier for any bullish effort, as price goes downwards towards the demand levels at 106.00, 105.50 and 105.00.

      Daily analysis of EUR/JPY for April 3, 2018

      EUR/JPY
      The EUR/JPY is bearish in the long-term, and rather neutral in the short-term. Price pulled back on Monday, and that could harbinger a rise in volatility. However, the demand zone at 130.00, which has been tested already, could be tested and get breached to the downside.

      There is a higher probability that price will go southwards (in agreement with the long-term outlook) when a breakout does occur. There is still a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, and that would become more important as price goes further downwards, reaching the demand zones at 129.50 and 129.00 today.

      Pound - The Dark Horse of G10

      In the first quarter, the British pound added 4 percent against the US dollar due to a reduction in political risks and an increase in the likelihood of a continuation of the cycle of normalization of the monetary policy of the Bank of England in May, above 80 percent. Slowing inflation from 3 percent to 2.7 percent and increasing wages to 2.8 percent can be expected to bolster the purchasing power of the population and the acceleration of GDP. As a result, the factor of underestimation can play on the side of the pound.

      While the OECD claims that the economy of the United Kingdom will show the slowest growth rates among developed countries, a pleasant surprise is able to help the "bulls" in the GBP/USD to restore an upward trend. For example, you do not need to go far: at the end of 2016, Bloomberg experts gave modest estimates of the eurozone's GDP for 2017 at + 1.7%. In fact, the indicator was received positively with the 2.5% rally, which became one of the key drivers of strengthening the euro by 14%. As a clue to the future dynamics of the economy of the United Kingdom can serve as evidence from business activity. The statistics on purchasing managers' indices adds saturation to the economic calendar and pushes the pound for the most interesting currency of the first week of April.

      Dynamics of PMI in services and GDP in Britain



      Source: Trading Economics.

      Moderately negative PMI forecasts in production (54.7 versus 55.2 in February) and construction sectors (50.8 against 51.8), as well as in services sector (54 versus 54.5) may become a kind of rehearsal, what will happen to the pound for the rest of the year. Strong factual data inspire "Bulls" for GBP/USD to take advantage of.

      Positive from macroeconomic statistics, coupled with the decision on the transition period for Britain until 2019, which should be interpreted as a reduction in political risks, untie the hands of the Bank of England. The Committee on Monetary Policy has plenty of "hawks" who were waiting for clues from Brussels. The futures market expects an increase in repo rates in May and November, the normalization cycle may continue in February 2019. Adjustments to this trajectory can be made by politics and the economy. In particular, "bears" for the sterling pound say that it is too early to speak about certainty with regard to Brexit and refer to volatility growth from 7.8% in October-December to 8.3% in January-March. ING, on the other hand, claims that the pound's violent response to a transitional report indicates its underestimation.

      When predicting the future dynamics of GBP/USD, one should not forget about such a factor as trade wars. The exchange of import duties between the US and China worsens the global appetite for risk, which negatively affects the desire of investors to invest in financial markets in Britain and is a deterrent for sterling.

      Technically, the necessary condition for the recovery of the "bullish" trend for GBP/USD is a breakthrough resistance at 1.425. In this case, the child pattern AB=CD with a target of 200% will be activated. While the pair's quotes are above 1.3705, the situation is controlled by buyers.

      RBA leaves rates unchanged, and China is in charge of the US

      The Australian dollar managed to strengthen its positions against the US dollar after the decision of the Reserve Bank of Australia to leave the key interest rate unchanged. However, there are a number of points that indicate a tightening of conditions in the short-term financing markets in US dollars.

      According to yesterday's decision, the Reserve Bank of Australia left the key interest rate unchanged at 1.50%, while stating that the rates correspond to the target level of inflation and economic growth. Despite this, a number of commercial banks have resorted to raising the cost of short-term financing, which also led to an increase in mortgage rates.

      The RBA also expects further progress in reducing unemployment, as leading indicators show a strong increase in employment. Despite this, the regulator expects that the growth of salaries, most likely, will remain low for some time.

      As for economic forecasts, experts in the RBA continue to project faster growth of GDP this year, which in the future will lead to a gradual return of inflation to the target level.

      As for the technical picture of the AUD/USD pair, there are still no major changes. The small short-term growth of the Australian dollar is likely to be temporary, as the US-China trade war, which is only gaining momentum, could negatively affect the Australian economy.

      Considering short positions in the AUD/USD pair would be best done after a correction to the areas of resistance at 0.7750 and 0.7780, and the breakthrough of current support levels in the area of 0.7640 will lead to another wave of selling in the trading instrument with the output towards new lows of 0.7560 and 0.7500.

      On Sunday, it became known that the US and China could not negotiate on trade tariffs, although last week there were clear "glimpses" in the negotiations. The Chinese authorities imposed duties on the import of a number of goods from the United States, claiming retaliatory measures, after the administration of Donald Trump had imposed levies on the supply of steel and aluminum from China. As noted in the report of the Ministry of Finance of China, duties are raised by 25% of the tariff for American pork and a number of other commodity items, as well as 15% of the tariff for fruits and 120 commodities from the US.

      As a result of such protectionist measures, investors once again turned their attention to gold, which yesterday rose strongly in price. Many traders are afraid of a more protracted trade war between the US and China, as well as the fact that a number of retaliatory measures with all the ensuing consequences of the European Union. This will necessarily lead to an increase in the costs of manufacturing companies and adversely affect the growth rate of the economy.

      Re: InstaForex Analytics

      Gold answers with tooth for tooth

      Gold quite rapidly responded to the United States and China's transition from a conflict to massive military action. China is ready to to retaliate in the "tit for tat", answering exactly the same way as its opponent. If the introduction of Washington's import duties on steel and aluminum on Beijing is estimated at $3 billion, then $50 billion was announced to match it for the Washington's allegations of violation of intellectual property rights along with duties for the supply of 106 US products, including soybeans, chemicals, airplanes and cars. According to China, the accusations are unproven, unilateral protectionism is flourishing, and the beast must be planted back into the cage.

      It seems that Donald Trump has found a worthy opponent capable of putting an end to his desire to reduce the negative balance of foreign trade from the current $375 billion to a hundred billion. China is ready to defend its own interests, but the trade war does not bring anything good. Like any war, in principle. The slowdown in global GDP as a result of supply chain disruption, the acceleration of inflation under the influence of rising import prices and the aggressive monetary tightening of the Fed are bringing the US economy closer to a recession. The situation is aggravated by the growth of the national debt, which must be financed, and the problems in this area put serious pressure on the US dollar.

      Indeed, if we assume that the United States will not stop at this and will pay all Chinese import duties, then China will have to take other measures, since supplies from the United States are less than its own in the opposite direction. An adequate response will require the sale of treasury bonds, rumors about it a few weeks ago, the dollar dropped. The greenbacks weakness can push gold to around $1,400 an ounce and higher, which significantly exceeds the median forecast of Bloomberg experts.

      Forecasts and dynamics of gold



      Traders with 40-year experience note that for several decades, precious metal has been sensitive to the USD index and the yield of US bonds. In this regard, its limited sensitivity to the trade war looks logical: despite the collapse of the stock indices, the dollar has remained stable. Perhaps the reason should be sought in the fact that the duties are not yet in effect, or that they may not do so at all. It is likely that Beijing and Washington will sit at the negotiating table, and their constructive nature will allow investors to turn their heads again towards the Fed. Thus, BNP Paribas claims that gold will close the year in the red zone, and IHS Markit expects prices to fall below $1200 on the background of four increases in the federal funds rate.

      Unlike "bears" in precious metals, central banks continue to believe in its bright future. Thus, the Russian regulator in February added 22.8 tonnes to gold and currency reserves after 18.9 tonnes in January and 224 tonnes in 2017. The growth rate is the 11th consecutive month.

      Technically, a breakthrough in resistance at $1357-1362 per ounce will open the way for bulls to target 127.2% and 161.8% for the AB = CD pattern. They are located near the marks of $1390 and $1405.

      Daily analysis of USD/CHF for April 8, 2018


      USD/CHF
      The pair remains bullish in the short-term (and its fate is largely subject to whatever happens to EURUSD). Price went upwards last week, almost reaching the resistance level at 0.9650, and then getting corrected lower. The short-term bullishness will be rendered ineffectual only when price goes below the support level at 0.9500.


      On the other hand, a movement above the resistance level at 0.9700 will result in a stronger bullish bias on the market. There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the 4-hour chart, and thus, price is expected to go further upwards, irrespective of temporary pullbacks along the way.


      Daily analysis of USD/JPY for April 8, 2018

      USD/JPY
      The USD/JPY is bearish in the long-term, and bullish in the short-term. In the short-term, price gained 180 pips from the low of last week, reaching the supply level at 107.50. Then there was a slight bearish correction in the market, which would eventually turn out to be an opportunity to buy long at better prices. A rally is very likely this week, which would push price upwards by 200 pips.

      This movement would be strong enough to override the long-term bearishness in the market. There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the 4-hour chart, and thus, price is expected to go further upwards, reaching other supply levels at 107.50 and 108.00.


      Daily analysis of EUR/JPY for April 8, 2018

      EUR/JPY
      This cross is bearish in the long-term, and rather neutral in the short-term. Another reality is that the market condition is currently choppy, but that might come to an end when a rally occurs in the market. There is a strong likelihood of a rally here, owing to a bullish expectation on JPY pairs for this week.


      The supply zones at 131.50, 132.00 and 132.50 could be reached when a bullish movement begins. There is now a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, and that would become more important as price goes further northwards.

      Sensation from North Korea

      AUD / USD
      On Friday, the Australian dollar did not give rise to the speculative sentiment of the European and American traders and was fundamentally declined by 10 points on the general unfavorable background of foreign markets. Oil lost in price slightly more than 2%, iron ore -0.08%, copper -0.7%.

      This morning, investors were satisfied with the growth in the construction sector activity from AIG in the March assessment, the growth came in from 56.0 to 57.2 points. The NAB business confidence index will be release tomorrow, as the March forecast showed results of 12 against 9 in February. Also, the stock markets of the APR failed to grow badly today despite the Friday drop in the US market, with the Nikkei 225 + 0.68%, S & P / ASX 200 + 0.37%, and China A50 + 0.26%. The possible optimism is related to Kim Jong-un's statement about the readiness to test the nuclear weapons and to conduct a denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. The "Australian" currency could possibly grow in the range of 0.7760 / 75.

      Producer prices in the US have grown significantly

      Data released in the first half of the day, slightly supported the European currency, which formed a new uptrend yesterday.

      Positively, euro buyers responded to the growth of industrial production in France and Italy in February of this year after more than a sharp decline in the beginning of the year.

      According to the report of the statistics agency, industrial production in France in February this year grew by just 1.2% after falling 1.8% in January. Economists predicted that industrial production will grow by 1.3%.

      In Italy, the indicator that was mentioned above also added 1.0% after a drop of 1.8% in January of this year. Economists were less upbeat and expected a decline in production in February by 0.5%. Compared to the same period in 2017, the industry in Italy grew by 2.5%, while economists were confident in growth of 4.8%.

      The euro has grown well after weak data, which pointed to a decrease in the optimism level of the leaders of small companies in the US in March this year. It is logical to assume that the trade war unleashed by the White House administration negatively affects entrepreneurs who are expecting an improvement of the state of the economy and further develop their business.

      According to the report of the National Federation of Independent Business, the optimism index of small business in March dropped to 104.7 points against 107.6 points in February. As noted in the NFIB, despite the decline in the overall index, hiring of employees and spending on the acquisition of new real estate remain at high levels.

      Without attention, buyers of the US dollar left the fact that producer prices in the US in March of this year showed a significant growth, which will necessarily create a good overall inflationary pressure in the US economy, as expected by the Federal Reserve.

      According to the US Department of Labor, the producer price index rose by 0.3% in March compared to the previous month. The tank index, which does not take into account volatile categories, especially energy prices, rose by 0.3% in March, compared with the previous month.

      Economists had expected that the overall index would show an increase of 0.1%, and the base index will grow by 0.2%. Compared to the same period of the previous year, the overall index rose in March by 3.0%, the index excluding food and energy increased by 2.7%.



      The British pound disregarded the speech of the representative of the Bank of England Andy Haldane, who said that monetary policy had not had a significant impact on income inequality in the UK. However, without stimulation, unemployment would be higher and GDP would be lower.

      So far, demand for the pound remains on the back of a lack of new conversations related to Brexit. UK economic indicators also point to a positive scenario for the economy, which could lead to further hikes in interest rates by the Bank of England. *The market analysis posted here is meant to increase your awareness, but not to give instructions to make a trade.

      Gold goes ahead

      When investors do not know what to do, they buy gold. Mutual threats of the US and China on the introduction of import duties caused only a temporary decline of stock indices on fears of a slowdown in the world economy due to the trade war. The US administration managed to calm investors, who can not understand how the US dollar will react. According to Morgan Stanley, negotiations between Washington and Beijing, a strong economy, tightening of the monetary policy of the Fed and improvement of the state of foreign trade allow us to rely on the growth of the USD index. Deutsche Bank, on the contrary, is confident of its decline due to a double deficit.

      While the foreign exchange market is looking for an answer to the question of how to respond to a trade war, investors are buying up precious metals. ETF stocks continue to increase, and Xetra-Gold, one of the three largest specialized exchange funds, has increased to peak levels since its inception in 2007. This indicates a high demand for the analyzed asset, primarily in Europe.

      "Bulls" of XAU/USD particularly do not panic about the potential decline in Indian imports. Bloomberg, referring to its reliable sources in Delhi, who wished to remain anonymous, reported a reduction in shipments to 64.2 tons to that country in March. A year ago, it was about a figure of 121 tons. History shows that if gold flows from East to West ( in ETF), then the chances of getting an uptrend are much higher than the downtrend.

      Especially against the background of increasing volatility of precious metals. The 60-day indicator rose to 12.4, the highest for more than a year. In such conditions, one can expect increased activity from central banks in the area of purchases of the analyzed asset for increasing gold and foreign exchange reserves.

      Dynamics of gold volatility

      If we add to the above, the recent escalation of the conflict around Syria and Iran, the growing likelihood of Russia's response to US economic sanctions and the associated deterioration of global appetite for risk, it becomes clear that the fundamental background contributes to the continuation of the XAU/USD rally.

      The return of investors' interest in the single European currency also played a role in the process. Its share in the USD index is 57%. Therefore, the "hawkish" comments made by Ewald Novotny about the completion of QE in 2018 and the increase in the deposit rate from -0.4% to -0.2%, as well as the optimism of other ECB representatives regarding the prospects of a slow down in the first quarter of the economy for the currency bloc, returned hopes of a recovery of an upward long-term trend to bulls of the EUR/USD.

      The release of data on US inflation for March and the publication of the minutes of the last meeting of the FOMC can hinder the plans of the fans of the precious metal. Overclocking the CPI and the "hawkish" rhetoric of the Fed will increase the chances of four rate hikes on federal funds in 2018 and will provide short-term support to the dollar.

      Technically, breaking through the resistance at $1357 and $1362 per ounce will increase the risks of activating of AB = CD patterns and the realization of their targets by 127.2% and 161.8%.

      The ECB looks with caution in the future

      The data in the first half of the day had a negative impact on the exchange rate of the European currency, as it indicated a fall in industrial production in the euro area in February this year compared with January. The minutes of the meeting of the European Central Bank were also not optimistic. According to the report of the statistical agency, industrial production in the eurozone in February this year fell by 0.8% compared with January, while economists expected production growth of 0.2%. Such a sharp reduction will necessarily lead to a slowdown in the growth of the euro area economy in the first quarter of this year. A declining trend is observed for the third month in a row, and each time it is bigger and bigger. Thus, in December, compared with November, industrial production fell by 0.1%, and in January compared with December by 0.6%.



      As I noted above, the publication of the minutes of the meeting of the Governing Council of ECB officials, which was held on March 7-8, put pressure on risky assets, which led to a sharp decline in the European currency.

      The main reason for such a sharp decline was the ECB's concern over the probability of a trade war with the US, as well as the excessively high euro exchange rate. As noted in the minutes, much emphasis is put on what will be the damage from the trade war, as well as on what measures the European Union will take, which may affect the weakening of investor confidence.

      After such a report, one can hardly rely on the regulator to reduce its fiscal incentives in autumn, and especially an increase in interest rates by the European Central Bank in the spring of next year.

      As for the technical picture of the EURUSD pair, the development of the market went in accordance to a bearish scenario. Now sellers are working out support levels in the area of 1.2330, continuing to strive for a larger area of 1.2300 and 1.2275.

      The British pound strengthened somewhat against the US dollar after a slight decline in the first half of the day. The pound was supported by a speech by David Davis, who is in charge of the UK government for Brexit talks.

      According to Davis, at the present time there is a very low probability that the UK and the EU will not reach an agreement on Brexit, and during the transition period, little will change for business. The transition period will give the UK time to prepare for the application of the new rules

      Davis also drew attention to the fact that the big plus of Brexit is the ability to independently conclude trade agreements, which in the future will enable the UK to conclude more favorable agreements.

      Elliott wave analysis of EUR/NZD for April 16, 2018

      EUR/NZD is following the expected path and is correcting. The minimum corrective target at 1.6793 has already been tested, but we expected a little more correction closer to the 1.6835 - 1.6860 area will be seen before lower again towards the ideal target near 1.6620. The test of 1.6620 will ideally complete the corrective decline from 1.7162. That said it's possible that a larger correction is developing and if this is the case, a decline to 1.6220 should be expected before a more firm bottom is in place.

      R3: 1.6860
      R2: 1.6820
      R1: 1.6793
      Pivot: 1.6736
      S1: 1.6676
      S2: 1.6620
      S3: 1.6580

      Trading recommendation:
      We are looking for an EUR-selling opportunity at 1.6845.

      Daily analysis of major pairs for April 16, 2018


      Daily analysis of USD/CHF for April 16, 2018


      USD/CHF
      There is some form of bullishness on the USD/CHF. Since the support level at 0.9200 was breached on February 16, price has moved upwards by 440 pips, closing above the support level at 0.9600 on Friday. This week is supposed to be bullish, because USD will likely gain some stamina against certain currencies like EUR, CHF, AUD and NZD (with the exception of GBP). The first object of attack this week is the resistance level at 0.9650.

      There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market and price is expected to go upwards, as the EUR/USD goes southwards. The support levels at 0.9500 and 0.9450 would try to impede any southward attempts.


      Daily analysis of USD/JPY for April 16, 2018

      USD/JPY
      The USD/JPY is bearish in the long-term, and bullish in the short-term. There is a weak short-term bullishness owing to the fact that price made some effort to go upwards last week, gaining only 80 pips. Price managed to briefly breach the supply level at 107.50, but it could not close above it on Friday (it closed below it).

      However, price would be able to go above the supply level at 107.50; even reaching other supply levels at 108.50, 109.00 and 109.50. This is owing to the Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market.


      Daily analysis of EUR/JPY for April 16, 2018

      EUR/JPY
      The EUR/JPY is bearish in the long-term, and now bullish in the short-term. It has gained roughly 250 pips this month, and it can gain another 250 pips before the end of the month. That is something that can bring about a long-term bullish outlook on the market as it goes through the supply zones at 133.00, 133.50 and 134.00, even exceeding those supply zones as price goes further and further northwards.


      There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, which would become more and more serious as price goes northwards. Short trades are not recommended here.

      Daily analysis of USD/CHF for April 17, 2018


      USD/CHF
      The market traded lower on Monday, and nothing has changed apart from that. This week is supposed to be bullish, because USD will likely gain some stamina against certain currencies pairs, and that might happen before the week runs out. The first object of attack this week is the resistance level at 0.9650.

      The situation in the market is now dicey, until there will be a directional movement in the market. However, a directional movement is anticipated. The support levels at 0.9500 and 0.9450 would try to impede any southward attempts.


      Daily analysis of USD/JPY for April 17, 2018

      USD/JPY
      On this pair, there was a shallow bearish retracement on April 16. In contrast, there is a weak short-term bullishness owing to the fact that price made some effort to go upwards last week, gaining only 80 pips. It might go upwards this week, to corroborate the recent bullish effort in the market.

      However, price would be able to go above the supply level at 107.50; even reaching other supply levels at 108.50, 109.00 and 109.50. There is some bullish expectation on JPY pairs this week, which could see some rallies on them.


      Daily analysis of EUR/JPY for April 17, 2018

      EUR/JPY
      There is now a bullish bias on this cross, which has gained roughly 250 pips this month, and it can gain another 250 pips before the end of the month. The targets at the supply zones at 132.00, 133.00 and 133.50, remain valid. They may even be exceeded as price journeys further upwards this week.


      There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, which would become more and more serious as price goes northwards. The price action also reveals that bulls are intent on pushing price further upwards. Short trades are not yet recommended.

      Fundamental Analysis of EUR/USD for April 17, 2018



      EUR/USD has been quite impulsive with the bullish gains recently which engulfed the recent bearish pressure with a daily candle yesterday. The volatility in the EURUSD is still quite high and expected to have no definite trend momentum until 1.25 is broken above or 1.21 is broken below. Despite having worse economic reports EUR gained good momentum over USD recently which is expected to push higher in the coming days. Today EUR German ZEW Economic Sentiment report is going to be published which is expected to decrease to -0.8 from the previous positive figure of 5.1, Italian Trade Balance report is expected to show an increase to 2.23B which previously was at -0.09B and ZEW Economic Sentiment report is expected to decrease to 7.3 from the previous figure of 13.4. On the other hand, today USD Building Permits report is going to be published which is expected to increase to 1.33M from the previous figure of 1.30M, Housing Starts is also expected to increase to 1.27M from the previous figure of 1.24M, Capacity Utilization Rate is expected to have slight decrease to 77.9% from the previous value of 78.1% and Industrial Production report is expected to decrease to 0.3% from the previous value of 1.1%. Moreover, today FOMC Member Williams and Quarles is going to speak about the nation's interest rate and monetary policy which is expected to be neutral in nature. As of the current scenario, both currencies in the pair is expected to have mixed economic results today and this week there is no further high impact economic reports or events to push the price into a definite trend but as the EUR is quite stronger in comparison to USD with the market sentiment, further bullish momentum is expected after certain retracement along the way in the coming days.

      Now let us look at the technical view. The price is currently residing above 1.2350 which was recently broken below with a daily close showing good evidence of price proceeding lower. As of yesterday, after having a daily close above 1.2350 does signify previous bearish move as a false break which is currently expected to push the price much higher in the coming days with the target towards 1.2450-1.25 price area. As the price remains above 1.2350 area, the further bullish pressure is expected in this pair.

      Brent: East is a delicate matter

      Donald Trump's statement that "the mission is carried out" after the military strikes against Syria by the United States and its allies allowed the "bears" of Brent and WTI to go on a counterattack. The conflict around Damascus did not turn into a mass brawl and the risks of interruptions in supplies from the Middle East declined, which led to the removal of oil futures from the region of 3.5-year highs. However, fears about the resumption of economic sanctions against Iran, political instability in Venezuela, OPEC's readiness to expand its commitments beyond 2018, and a strong global demand set the fans of black gold in a major way. In addition, who will give his head to be cut-off to guarantee that the US president will not throw out another fortune?

      Theoretically reducing the degree of geopolitical risks opens the way for correction. "Bears" are waiting for their hour, guided by the growth of American production by about a quarter from mid-2016 to 10.53 million bpd and the increase in drilling rigs by 73 units from the beginning of the year. The dynamics of indicators indicates that US companies are actively developing production and simultaneously hedging price risks through the sale of futures contracts. The problem is that the decline in stocks indicates the outpacing dynamics of domestic demand. According to the forecasts of experts in Bloomberg, by the end of the week of April 13, oil reserves in the USA will have decreased by 600 thousand barrels and for the first time in the last few years, will have fallen below their five-year average.

      Dynamics of US stocks



      Thus, the large-scale fiscal stimulus favorably affects domestic demand and allows to cover the negative from the increase in production. The increased interest in black gold in other countries, coupled with the implementation of the Vienna agreements of OPEC, lays a solid foundation under the upward trend for Brent and WTI. Thus, the volume of oil refining in China in March set a new record of 12.13 million bpd. The previous one was recorded in November (12.03 million). The acceleration of the indicator compared with the average for the first two months of the year (11.56 million) and March 2017 (11.19 million) speaks of the growing appetite of the Celestial Empire. The volume of its domestic extraction of black gold is 3.76 million bpd. The indicator is wandering near the lowest mark since June 2011, and its dynamics convince that Beijing is actively buying oil abroad.

      The situation can be changed only by the large-scale trade war between the US and China. This is the opinion of the International Energy Agency. Nevertheless, it does not change its forecast for the increase in global demand for 2018 at 1.5 million bpd. This shows that the IEA does not believe in military action. In our opinion, if the world economy headed by the US is beginning to restore the growth rates taken in 2017. The increased interest in oil will allow the "bulls" of Brent to continue the northern trend.

      Technically, the April update of the maximum will increase the risks of implementation of the Targets by 161.8% and 200% in the AB = CD patterns. They are located near the marks of $ 75-76.5 per barrel.
