Macron’S Triumph Removes Eurozone Political Risk

Daud Bhatti

Emmanuel Macron won the presidential election last Sunday, defeating Marine Le Pen, a far-right nationalist who wanted to take France out of the European Union. Markets had feared that Le Pen’s win could threaten the EU project, but Macron’s win has eliminated uncertainty regarding France’s membership of the Euro and removed the risk of near-term severe political shock to France and wider Europe. The Euro went above $1.10 briefly, but since then has pulled back. The upwards move was not dramatic than the first round of French elections as many traders have anticipated Macron’s victory and thus victory was already well priced in. more…

EUR/GBP Rounding Bottom Uptrend Continuation

Nenad Kerkez

The EUR/GBP has formed a rounding bottom shaped pattern at the support and is rejecting from W H3 camarilla pivot. 0.8435-50 is POC zone (D L3, ATR pivot, EMA 89, 50.0, trend line) and rejection from POC could target 0.8510. Have in mind that if target is reached, the pair could possibly spike to 0.8550 during next few days. This bullish scenario is negated if the pair drops and stays below 0.8400, rounded bottom low. more…

EUR/JPY Huge Marubozu After French Elections

Nenad Kerkez

The EUR/JPY had formed a huge marubozu candle (purple highlight) on 4h time frame after it was announced that Emmanuel Macron won the first round of the French presidential elections. If you followed my Price Action Trading School, than you should know that marubozu candle appears during high momentum in the market. Equities and EUR/USD went bullish, especially CAC40 as I predicted and analysed in the blog post before the elections. more…

Elliott Wave Analysis: EURCAD And NZDJPY

Gregor Horvat

EURCAD: Current fall below wave A) swing low suggests that EURCAD can be in wave C) already which may continue south to 1.4100 or maybe even to 1.3930 ideal target. However, we must keep in mind that this is a corrective pullback from 1.4598; it’s a contra-trend move that will sooner or later send price back to bullish mode. Bounce in small five waves back to 1.4300 will put prices back in uptrend. more…

EUR/USD Range Has Formed Two POC Zones

Nenad Kerkez

After a steady uptrend on EUR/USD, we see that important trend line has been broken and the pair has been dropping consistently for 2 days. One of the reasons why EUR/USD is dropping is possibly profit taking which was enacted by hedge funds as French elections grow closer. Today POC zone for selling is 1.0775-90 (D H3, ATR Pivot, inner trend line, EMA89) while we might expect buyers within 1.0665-85 zone (Order block, D L5, W L5, 78.6). Any break of Upper POC range (1.0790) and Lower POC range (1.0665) should establish new intraweek trend. At this point we need to treat this as range play with 2 zones where EUR/USD might react. more…

EUR/USD Levels To Watch Prior To FED

Nenad Kerkez

The US Federal Reserve Bank (“the Fed”), has battled to ignite inflation since the GFC and up until now it has raised rates less frequently than the markets have expected, however, this approach may soon change. Today, the Fed is almost universally expected to raise its benchmark interest rates following strong NFP, full employment and an uptick in inflation. The forecast is that the FED will hike the rates by 0.25 % and the event will be volatile as the FED hike might have already been priced in. We need to watch important camarilla levels and POC zones. more…
