Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (August 14 - 18, 2017)

Sun, Aug 13 2017, 07:38 GMT

by Tallinex.com

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

 

EURUSD

Dominant bias: Bullish

This pair is bullish, though it only consolidated last week, moving between the support line at 1.1700 and the resistance line at 1.1850. A movement above the aforementioned resistance line would put more emphasis on the bullish bias, while a movement below the support line could result in a threat to the bullish bias. On the other hand, further consolidation for the next several trading days would bring out a neutral bias on the market. No matter what happens this week, EUR would be seen going upwards versus certain currencies like AUD and NZD.   

 

USDCHF

Dominant bias: Bearish

This is essentially a bear market, although there was a bearish effort between July 25 and August 8, it was not enough to override the overall bearish bias. After testing the resistance line at 0.9750, further bullish effort was rejected as price came down by 250 pips, closing below the resistance line at 0.9650 on Friday. This week, the market would endeavor to target the support levels at 0.9550 and 0.9500 (even possibly exceeding it).

 

GBPUSD

Dominant bias: Bearish

In the context of a downtrend, GBPUSD moved sideways last week. Price oscillated between the distribution territory at 1.3050 and the accumulation territory at 1.2950. A movement below the accumulation territory at 1.2950 would put more emphasis on the bearish mode of the market, while a movement above the distribution territories at 1.3050, 1.3100 and 1.3150 would result in a new bullish signal. This week, GBP also would be seen moving upwards versus certain currencies like AUD and NZD.

 

USDJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

From the August high of 114.47, this trading instrument has dropped by 550 pips, testing the demand level at 109.00, and closing above the demand level on Friday. There is a strong Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, and thus, it is logical to conclude that price would continue going downwards this week, aiming at the demand levels of 109.00, 108.50 and 108.00. There could be transitory upward bounces along the way.  

 

EURJPY

Dominant bias: Bearish

The long-expected bearishness on EURJPY is here. Last week, price dropped 250 pips, ending the recent neutrality on the market (which was in place for roughly three weeks), and bringing about a bearish bias. On Friday, price bounced upwards, closing slightly above the demand zone at 129.00; thus creating a wonderful opportunity to sell short at a better price, while the outlook on the market remains bearish. This week, price is expected to go lower, reaching the demand zones at 128.50, 128.00 and 127.50

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:
