      Pound and the euro continue to fall

      Despite good industrial production figures in Germany for March of this year, the European currency continued its decline against the US dollar and a number of other world currencies on Tuesday morning. The speech of the chairman of the Fed was taken by traders with a certain optimism. Although, Powell did not touch on the conditions of monetary policy but instead spoke more about its impact on other developed economies of the world.

      According to the report of the Federal Bureau of Statistics of Germany, industrial production in March 2018 grew by 1.0% compared with February, while economists expected an increase of 0.8%. As stated in the report, the main reason for the growth was the increase in production of capital goods. Compared with March 2017, industrial production in Germany increased by 3.2%.

      Good data from Germany, after the disastrous beginning of the year, instilled some optimism in investors, but, as we see on the EURUSD chart, this is not enough.

      The morning speech by the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Jerome Powell, had a positive effect on the quotes of the US dollar. Powell said that despite the Fed's repeated increase in rates since December 2015, financial conditions in the US have become less stringent, while monetary stimulus has had only a relatively limited impact on the flow of capital in emerging economies in recent years. He also noted that the Fed, as much as possible, clearly intends to talk about the prospects of politics in order to avoid unrest in the markets.

      As for the technical picture of the EURUSD pair, the downtrend persists and so far there are no prerequisites for a reversal. The breakdown at the support level of 1.1890 opens up new prospects for updating the lows in the areas of 1.1830 and 1.1790. The main goal now will be the level of the minimum of December 12, 2017 which is the level of 1.1717.

      The British pound grew reluctantly but returned to the lower boundary of the side channel, which also indicates the continued downward trend in the trading instrument. Pressure on the pound in the first half of the day could be formed by statements of British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson. During the interview, Johnson expressed his dissatisfaction with the plan of the customs agreement, which was proposed by Prime Minister Theresa May and which should enter into force after Brexit.

      According to the minister, the variant of the customs agreement contradicts everything that the UK aspired to by agreeing to Brexit and leaving the EU, since the preservation of import duties in favor of the EU will retain control over trade policy and laws.

      GBP/JPY Reversed Nicely Off Resistance, Remain Bearish

      GBP/JPY reversed off its resistance at 149.20 (100% Fibonacci extension, 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, horizontal overlap resistance) where we expect prices to drop to its support at 147.14 (horizontal swing low support)

      Stochastic (89, 5, 3) is reversed off its resistance at 96% where it has a lot of corresponding downside potential.

      Sell 149.20. Stop loss at 150.01. Take profit at 147.14.

      Euro buyers have a chance

      Weak data on producer prices in the US and the performance of representatives of the Fed did not put much pressure on the US dollar, which will continue its steady growth against risky assets.

      According to the report, the producer price index in the US for the month of April this year grew by only 0.1% after rising by 0.3% in March. Economists expected inflation to grow by 0.2%.

      Compared to the same period in 2017, producer prices rose only 2.6%, also showing a slowdown. Economists had expected growth of 2.8%.

      The speech of the President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, Raphael Bostic, was rather optimistic.

      Bostic said that a gradual increase in rates would lead to an increase in inflation above the target level and the economy is close or has already reached full employment.

      He also noted that the Fed will continue to closely monitor the signs of rising price pressure, as inflation is close to achieving the target level.

      According to the representative of the Fed, the main risk for the US economy is associated with uncertain prospects for trade.

      The buyers of the euro managed to hold within the minimum of the month in yesterday's session, which indicates an upcoming upward correction. However, for this it is necessary to break above the resistance level of 1.1890, where the areas of 1.1930 and 1.1970 open.

      The New Zealand dollar collapsed against the US dollar after the Reserve Bank of New Zealand left the official interest rate unchanged at 1.75%, saying that monetary policy will remain stimulating for a long time.

      According to the RBNZ, the growth of the world economy will support the demand for New Zealand exports, and government and consumer spending will support GDP growth. Economists predict annual inflation of 2% in the fourth quarter of 2020, while the current level was previously expected in the third quarter. The official interest rate is also expected at 2% in the first quarter of 2020.

      Data on the Chinese economy have passed without a trace for commodity currencies. According to the report, China's consumer price index rose by 1.8% in April compared to the same period last year. It is important to note that in March, the growth was 2.1%.

      As noted in the report, the main pressure on the index was created by falling prices for pork. Compared with April 2017, it decreased by 16.1%. Prices for non-food products rose by 2.1%. Economists predicted that in April, consumer prices will rise by 1.9%.

      Daily analysis of USD/CHF for May 14, 2018


      USD/CHF
      In the context of an uptrend the USD/CHF went sideways last week, ranging between the resistance level at 1.0000 (previously a support level) and the resistance level at 1.0050. Eventually, price closed below the resistance level at 1.0000 on Friday, and it may even test the support levels at 0.9950 and 0.9900.

      There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the 4-hour chart, which shows the possibility of further upwards movement. However, price would rise again, possibly reaching the resistance level at 1.0000 and breaching it to the upside.

      Daily analysis of USD/JPY for May 14, 2018

      USD/JPY
      The bias on the USD/JPY is bullish – and the trend is still in a precarious position. Price did not go in a strong directional movement last week. It only oscillated between the demand level at 109.00 and the supply level at 110.00.

      A breach above the supply level at 110.00 is anticipated this week, although bulls may not be able to enjoy that victory for a long time, because there is a possibility of a fall back towards the demand level at 109.00. There is currently a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, which is, though, weak.

      Daily analysis of EUR/JPY for May 14, 2018

      EUR/JPY


      In a bearish outlook, the EUR/JPY trended downwards on Monday and Tuesday, and then started to make a rally effort. It managed to close above the demand zone at 130.50 on Friday, in the context of a downtrend. It is much more likely that the rally would end up proffering a clean opportunity to go short in the market at strategic supply zones.


      There is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market. Unless the Euro gets strengthened considerably, there might be a reversal in favor of bears, which would enable the market to target the demand zones at 130.50, 130.00 and 129.50.

      Correction potential in the euro can be restrained

      The upward correction in the European currency continued on Friday amid a lack of good fundamental statistics on the US economy, as well as rather restrained statements by the representatives of the Federal Reserve, in particular James Bullard, who stated that it was necessary to "slow down" with the increase in rates.

      According to the University of Michigan, consumer sentiment in the US in May remained unchanged. Despite the fact that the index is preliminary, the lack of growth in consumer confidence could negatively affect the economy in the second quarter of this year.

      Thus, the leading index of consumer sentiment at the University of Michigan in May this year was 98.8 points, unchanged from April. Economists had expected the index to be 98.0 points. Let me remind you that in March the mood index rose to 101.4 points, and then began its decline.



      As noted above, the speech of the representative of the Fed Bullard was of a rather interesting nature. Despite the fact that the US economy is in very good condition and there are no problems with inflation growth above 2% the regulator will not, Bullard is concerned that two more rate hikes this year could lead to a coup in the yield curve of government bonds.

      In his view, it is wrong to assume that a reversal of the yield curve will not lead to serious changes in the market. In this connection, the official of the Federal Reserve indicated that he will express his disagreement with the further increase of interest rates this year.

      His colleague in the role, Loretta Mester, was more optimistic. In her opinion, the Fed may have to make their policies deterrent, as the neutral interest rate increases. However, improving economic prospects will be a strong argument in favor of further tightening of monetary policy, as this will prevent overheating of the economy.

      Mester is sure that the prospects for the economy are positive, and the level of full employment has been reached in the labor market.

      As for the technical picture of the EURUSD pair, buyers of risky assets have already formed a fairly large upward wave, which led the trading instrument to the resistance level area of 1.1980. Only its breakthrough will serve as a new impetus to the opening of long positions in the expectation of updating the highs of 1.2020 and 1.2070.

      If the bulls are not so persistent, and in the resistance area 1.1980 there will be a drop in demand for risky assets, another attempt to return to the market of large sellers with the removal of stop orders of buyers below the support of 1.1930 is not ruled out.

      Weak indicators of GDP growth in the Eurozone put pressure on the euro

      The Eurozone's weak economic growth, along with the slowdown in its flagship German economy, has affected the sentiment of traders who are rushing to lock in long positions in the European currency after the recent corrective growth.

      According to the Federal Bureau of statistics, German economic growth slowed in the 1st quarter of 2018. As noted in the report, one of the reasons for the slowdown was a series of strikes that swept through Germany. Thus, GDP growth in annual terms was at 1.2% against 2.5% in the 4th quarter of 2017. Economists also predicted a slowdown in the German economy in the 1st quarter.

      According to the Bureau of statistics, France's GDP growth for 2017 was revised to 2.2%, from 2%, as previously reported. Good GDP growth was recorded in the 1st quarter in Spain, which partly offset the fall in the overall indicator for the Eurozone.

      According to the report of the statistical Agency Eurostat, the growth rate of economic activity slowed. Thus, the Eurozone economy in the 1st quarter of 2018 grew by only 0.4% compared to the previous quarter after an increase of 0.7% in the 4th quarter of last year. These data fully coincided with the preliminary forecast, as well as with the expectations of economists.

      As for the technical picture of the EUR/USD pair, the bearish scenario continues to work out. The breakthrough of support at 1.1890, from which the euro continued to grow on Friday, could lead to a number of new short positions and a further decline of the euro towards the low of 1.1850 and 1.1820

      The British pound did not receive much support after the publication of the report on the labor market, which indicated that from January to March this year, unemployment in the UK remained at its minimum level.

      According to the National Bureau of Statistics, unemployment remained at 4.2 percent, while the number of unemployed in the UK decreased by 46,000 during the reporting period.

      Despite this, the pound continues to decline, moving towards the lower border of the side channel, which was formed after the decision of the Bank of England on interest rates last week in the level of 1.3460.

      Data from the National Bureau of Statistics also came out in the first half of the day, which indicated that industrial production in China in April of this year increased by 7.0% compared to the same period last year after an increase of 6.0% in March. Economists had expected production to grow by 6.4 percent.

      aRetail sales in China rose only 9.4% in April, following a 10.1% increase in March compared to the same period last year. The unemployment rate fell to 4.9% in April.

      Daily analysis of USD/CHF for May 16, 2018


      USD/CHF

      This currency trading instrument has not done much this week, and price itself has nearly gone below the support level at 1.0000, which is an important level. Once the first target at 1.0050 is breached, another resistance level at 1.0100 would be aimed at; and this is something that requires a rise in volatility.

      A rise in volatility is expected today or tomorrow. There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the 4-hour chart. Price would rise again, possibly reaching the resistance level at 1.0050 and breaching it to the upside.

      Daily analysis of USD/JPY for May 16, 2018

      USD/JPY
      The bias on this pair is bullish – and the trend is now in a strong position. The demand level at 110.00 has been breached to the upside, and while there is a currently a shallow bearish retracement in the market, price is now aiming at the demand level at 110.50.

      There is currently a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, which has become stronger as a result of the surge in the bullish movement. For this rally to be sustained, there is a need for continuous buying pressure in the market.

      Daily analysis of EUR/JPY for May 16, 2018

      EUR/JPY

      As it was forecasted earlier this week, and reiterated on Tuesday, the EUR/JPY cross has generated a bearish signal, which has cancelled the recent bullish effort in the market (for the bullish effort simply proffered opportunity to go long). The demand zone at 129.50 is now being tested.

      There is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market. The EMA 11 is below the EMA 56, and the RSI period 14 is below the level 50. Further bearish movement is anticipated, which would propel price towards the demand zones at 129.00 and 128.50.

      Daily analysis of EUR/JPY for May 18, 2018

      EUR/JPY
      There are still mixed signals in the market. The EMA 11 is slightly below the EMA 56, and the RSI period 14 is slightly above the level 50. It may be prudent to stay away from this market until there would be a directional movement in it.

      At least, in the short-term, nothing has really changed in this market. The price plummeted on Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday, to test the demand zone at 129.50. After that, a rally effort was made, which made price rose by 110 pips, thereby frustrating the bears. Investors may want to wait until there is a directional movement in the market.

      Technical analysis of Gold for May 21, 2018

      Gold price is breaking down below the recent $1,285-$1,295 consolidation. Gold price could see $1,270-75, but the bearish divergence signs continue to warn us that the next big move will be to the upside. I'm a buyer of Gold at the current or lower levels.

      Blue lines - bullish divergence warning
      Green lines - target levels
      Yellow line - medium-term resistance
      Red line - short-term resistance

      Short-term resistance is at $1,292. I expect Gold price to soon break above it and move towards our first targets of $1,302-$1,304. Next important resistance is at $1,310-13 where I can see the next big trend test. With a break above this level, the price will move towards the 50% and 61.8% Fibonacci retracement. A weekly close above the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement will open the way for a bigger move towards $1,425. Gold is at its final stages of the move from the $1,365 level.

      Daily analysis of USD/CHF for May 21, 2018


      USD/CHF
      The USD/CHF is bullish in the long-term, but neutral in the short-term. Price has been consolidating in the past two weeks; whereas that is not strong enough to render the recent bullish bias useless. There is going to be a breakout at last, but the movement to the upside will no longer be a serious thing.

      While USDCHF is supposed to go upwards, there would be a challenge to the upwards move, because CHF is expected to gain serious stamina this week (major currencies will drop versus it). This means that the coming strength in CHF may hinder USDCHF from getting seriously pushed further northwards.

      Daily analysis of USD/JPY for May 21, 2018

      USD/JPY
      The bias on the pair is still bullish. The bullish movement that was witnessed last week has saved the ongoing bullish bias in the market. The bullish movement started in March 2018 and it has held out till now. The supply level at 111.00 was tested before price closed below it on Friday. The JPY may be weakened further this week.

      There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, which makes short trades not yet advisable. This week, there is a high probability that the market would continue going upwards, reaching the supply levels at 111.00, 111.50 and 112.00.

      Daily analysis of EUR/JPY for May 21, 2018

      EUR/JPY
      The EUR/JPY has failed to go seriously upwards like its USD/JPY counterpart. The bias on this cross is bearish, but it is a precarious bias. What the market did last week was a zigzag movement without a clear directional propensity (although the general outlook still remains bearish).

      Price moved upwards, downwards, and upwards again, within the supply zone at 131.50 and the demand zone at 129.50. A 200 –pip movement to the upside or to the downside would easily change the bias to bullish or bearish, and that is exactly what is expected this week.

      Pound returns to politics

      Quotes of the GBP/USD slumped to a five-month low as it came under fire on three sides. The lack of a unified position within the conservative party on the basic principles of Brexit has revived political risks, negative statistics on the U.K. continues to reduce the likelihood of tightening the monetary policy of the Bank of England in 2018, and, finally, the unrestrained growth of the yield of Treasury bonds pushes up the US dollar. Such an unfavorable background makes the position of the sterling extremely vulnerable, but Forex is good because the situation can be turned upside down in a matter of moments.

      Unexpected comments by Theresa May that Britain will still come out of the Customs Union, became a verdict for the pound. A week ago, the market was walking directly opposite rumors, which at that time had some support for the "bulls" on the GBP/USD. Even for a little while. The Prime Minister said that there is no reason for a second referendum on Scotland's independence, although in the North of the United Kingdom there are quite different sentiments. In general, the divide is felt in all politics, not only in the conservative party, which plays against sterling.

      The futures market is on the verge of abandoning the idea of raising the REPO rate by 25 bp in 2018. Previously, there was confidence in two acts of monetary tightening, and after the May meeting of the Bank of England, the likelihood of a hike in August were regarded as a fifty-fifty. However, the busy economic calendar for the week to May 25 a priori nominates the pound for the title of the most interesting currency of the five-day period. Bloomberg analysts expect to see April inflation and GDP for the first quarter at the same levels of +2.5% yoy and +0.1% q/q, and also forecast a slowdown in retail sales to a six-month low. At the same time, the BoE in its most recent accompanying documents noted that the second assessment of January-March, in fact, is likely to be the best. If inflation also begins to move away from the target in the direction of 3%, the idea of two acts of monetary tightening in 2018 will rise from the ashes. And if so, then the "bulls" on the GBP/USD after long ordeals will still feel the ground beneath their feet.

      Dynamics of the British inflation



      The reason for their optimism can be slowed down and finally, the US dollar. Despite the fact that the news of a truce in the trade war between Beijing and Washington in the form of a temporary cancellation of tariffs for $150 billion imports has benefited the yield of Treasury bonds, however, Bloomberg's median forecast of 3.19% at the end of the year is already close, and the stabilization of the indicator will somewhat curb the enthusiasm of bulls in the USD index. In addition, after a continuous 4-week rally, some of them will probably want to lock in the profit.

      Technically, a clear implementation of the "Broadening Wedge" pattern brought the pair's quotes beyond the upward trading channel, and the "bears" - to the operational space, and brought them closer to the target by 88.6% in the "Double Top" pattern at arm's length. It corresponds to the level of 1.32.

      Daily analysis of USD/CHF for May 22, 2018


      USD/CHF
      A short-term bearish signal has been generated on the USD/CHF. The recent 2-week consolidation has threatened the last bullish bias, and price has started going downwards, thus bringing about a “sell” signal. Price is expected to go further and further southwards, reaching the demand levels at 0.9950 and 0.9900.

      There is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the 4-hour chart, and that has brought about a short-term bearish signal. Further bearish movement can eventually invalidate the long-term bullishness in the market.

      Daily analysis of USD/JPY for May 22, 2018

      USD/JPY
      The market got corrected lower on Monday, in the context of an uptrend. The correction may be an opportunity to enter the market at better prices, for price could still go further upwards, thus saving the extant bullishness in the market. Only a large pullback could threaten the current bias on the market.

      There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, which makes short trades not yet advisable, unless the bias on the market turns bearish. This week, there is a high probability that the market would continue going upwards, reaching the supply levels at 111.00, 111.50 and 112.00.

      Daily analysis of EUR/JPY for May 22, 2018

      EUR/JPY
      The situation on the EUR/JPY remains clearly unchanged, for price did not do anything serious on May 21. The bias on this cross is bearish, but it is a precarious bias. What the market did last week was a zigzag movement without a clear directional propensity.

      Last week, price moved upwards, downwards, and upwards again, within the supply zone at 131.50 and the demand zone at 129.50. A 200 –pip movement to the upside or to the downside would easily change the bias to bullish or bearish, and that is exactly what is expected this week. A breakout can happen this week.

      Daily analysis of USDX for May 23, 2018

      The index managed to make a retracement from the Monday's highs, but the 200 SMA remains as a dynamic support in the short-term, where also it has formed a fractal. We should remind that a breakout above 94.10 can open the doors for a testing of the 94.88 level. However, a breakout below the 200 SMA on H1 chart should strengthen the bearish bias.



      H1 chart's resistance levels: 94.10 / 94.88
      H1 chart's support levels: 93.12 / 92.33

      Trading recommendations for today: Based on the H1 chart, place buy (long) orders only if the USD Index breaks with a bearish candlestick; the support level is at 94.10, take profit is at 94.88 and stop loss is at 93.30. *The market analysis posted here is meant to increase your awareness, but not to give instructions to make a trade.

      Euro and pound fall due to weak data

      Data released in the first half of the day on the economy of the euro area and the UK exerted serious pressure on the euro and the British pound, allowing US dollar buyers to further increase their long positions before the publication of the Federal Reserve's protocols, from which many are waiting for signals in the direction of further interest rates .

      In the first quarter of this year, the unemployment rate in France rose, indicating a slowdown in the recovery of the euro-zone economy in 2018. According to the report of the statistics agency Insee, the unemployment rate in France in the first quarter of this year rose to 9.2% from 9.0% in the fourth quarter of last year. This happened because of a sharp slowdown in the economy earlier this year.

      The euro collapsed after a report came out indicating that the growth of business activity in the euro area in May this year, contrary to all forecasts of economists and ECB representatives, slowed for the fourth consecutive month.

      According to a report by research company IHS Markit, the preliminary composite index of supply managers for the euro area in May 2018 was 54.1 points, while economists expected the index to be at 54.8 points.It is important to note that a value above 50 points still indicates an increase in activity.

      This slowdown is not surprising. For example, in Germany, the preliminary index of supply managers for the manufacturing sector in May fell to 56.8 points against 58.1 points in May, while it was projected at 57.5 points. The index for the service sector fell to 52.1 points in May against 53.0 points in April.

      In general, the composite PMI of Germany dropped to 53.1 points in May, while in April of this year, it was at the level of 54.6 points.

      France too, failed to please with good results.

      The preliminary composite index of supply managers of the PMI of France fell to 54.5 points in May against 56.9 points in April this year.

      As noted above, the British pound went to update the monthly lows paired with the US dollar after it became clear that the annual inflation in the UK in April this year dropped to the lowest level in more than a year.

      According to the National Bureau of Statistics, consumer prices rose only by 2.4% in April this year compared with the same period last year. In March, growth was at 2.5%.

      The main reason for the decline in prices, as noted in the ONS report, is the drop in prices for air tickets.

      All the data fully coincided with the forecast of economists.

      The reaction of the Bank of England, most likely, will not take long. In the near future, representatives of the Central Bank will make a number of statements, based on today's data, and most likely, they will not like the buyers of the British pound slightly.

      Elliott wave analysis of EUR/NZD for May 25, 2018

      EUR/NZD is now in its final stages of the wave c/ of ii/. Ideally, we will see a minor dip closer to support near 1.6806 before the wave ii/ is complete, but we would not be surprised to see a premature low form for a new rally higher through minor resistance at 1.6958 and, more importantly, above resistance at 1.7061 confirming that the wave iii/ higher to test important resistance at 1.7300 is developing.

      R3: 1.7061
      R2: 1.6981
      R1: 1.6958
      Pivot: 1.6915
      S1: 1.6883
      S2: 1.6846
      R3: 1.6806

      Trading recommendation: We are looking for a EUR-buying opportunity at 1.6815 or upon a break above 1.6960.

      Trading Plan for EUR/USD for May 28, 2018



      Technical outlook:

      The EUR/USD pair finally looks to stage a counter trend rally towards the 1.1950/1.2050 levels from here. In the immediate short term outlook, the pair should be looking to take out the 1.1750 levels, which is short term resistance. Then expect a dip towards the 1.1670/80 levels, before the counter trend rally gains further momentum higher. Please note that the 0.382 fibonacci resistance is seen at the 1.1940/50 levels as projected here. Immediate price support is seen at the 1.1500 levels, which should be the next potential target for bears. Now looking into the wave counts, the EUR/USD pair is still progressing into its 3rd wave of a lesser degree and is expected to carve the wave 4, before dropping lower into the wave 5 within the wave (3) as depicted here. Selling on rallies remains a preferred trading strategy for now.

      Trading plan:
      Aggressive traders may initiate longs around the 1.1675/1.1700 levels going forward; while conservative traders may remain flat for now and look forward to sell again between the 1.1930 and 1.2050 levels respectively.

      Fundamental outlook:
      There are no major events lined up for the day.

      Good luck!

      Daily analysis of major pairs for May 28, 2018


      Daily analysis of USD/CHF for May 28, 2018


      USD/CHF
      This USD/CHF is bullish in the long-term, and bearish in the short-term. Last week, price turned southwards, testing the level at 0.9900 several times and eventually closing below it on Friday. One reason why the market became bearish in the short-term is the strength in CHF. CHF still strong, as evident on major CHF pairs.


      The market can thus reach the support levels at 0.9850 and 0.9800, thereby erasing the long-term bullish outlook on the market… Short trades are not currently advisable as further bearish movement is a strong possibility.

      Daily analysis of USD/JPY for May 28, 2018

      USD/JPY
      The trend on the USD/JPY is also bearish in the short-term, but bullish in the long-term. From the high of last week, price went downwards by 230 pips, to test the demand level at 109.00, closing above it on May 25.

      Further bearish movement is expected this week, and this may affect the long-term bullish bias, as the demand levels at 109.00, 108.50 and 108.00 are aimed, for there is a considerable stamina in Yen. There is now a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market (4-hour chart). There is a “sell” signal in the market.

      Daily analysis of EUR/JPY for May 28, 2018

      EUR/JPY
      Here, the downwards movement that happened last week has put an end to the recent sideways movement that was seen in the market. From May 9 to 22, the market consolidated in the context of a downtrend, and at last, there was a breakout in favor of sellers. This has really put more emphasis on the Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, coupled with the weakness in EUR.

      This week, the demand zones at 127.00, 126.50 and 126.00 may be reached. There could be occasional upwards bounces along the way, but price is expected to continue going downwards. There is now a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market.

      Daily analysis of USD/CHF for May 29, 2018


      USD/CHF
      This pair did nothing significant on Monday – except a sideways movement in the context of a short-term downtrend. However, a breakout is supposed to happen today or tomorrow, which would most probably favor bears. There is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, and the bias is bearish.


      The market can thus reach the support levels at 0.9900 and 0.9850, thereby erasing the long-term bullish outlook on the market… However, for this to happen, there is a need for a strong bearish pressure.

      Daily analysis of USD/JPY for May 29, 2018

      USD/JPY
      This pair dropped 50 pips pm May 29, testing the demand level at 109.00. The demand level would be tested again and get breached to the downside. There is now a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market (4-hour chart). There is a “sell” signal in the market, which would aid further southwards movement.

      The bias on the market is currently bearish (starting last week), and this may affect the long-term bullish bias, as the demand levels at 109.00, 108.50 and 108.00 are aimed, for there is a considerable stamina in Yen.

      Daily analysis of EUR/JPY for May 29, 2018

      EUR/JPY
      What happened to this cross is quite similar to what happened to the USD/JPY, due to the stamina in JPY. Yesterday, price went lower by 150 pips, testing the demand level at 126.50. The demand level may also be breached to the downside as price continues to get weakened lower and lower.

      This week, the demand zones at 126.50, 126.00 and 125.50 may be reached. There could be occasional upwards bounces along the way, but price is expected to continue going downwards. There is now a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market.

      Elliott wave analysis of EUR/JPY for May 29, 2018



      The rally from 127.11 became much smaller than we expected and the following break back below 127.11 shifted our count back to the prior preferred count calling for a decline to 125.32 before a possible low of the wave C and (E) is in place.

      Short-term resistance is seen at 127.28 and a clear break back above here will be the first indication of a low being in place, but only a break above resistance at 128.54 will confirm that the wave (E) has bottomed and a new long-term rally is starting to develop.

      R3: 128.54
      R2: 127.71
      R1: 127.28
      Pivot: 126.93
      S1: 126.49
      S2: 125.80
      S3: 125.32

      Trading recommendation: We bought EUR at 127.75 and was stopped out shortly after for a loss of 70 pips. We are looking for a new EUR-buying opportunity, but for now we will only buy upon a break above 127.28.
