EUR/AUD Strict Bullish Wolfe Wave At The Bottom Of ATR

Nenad Kerkez

The EUR/AUD has been dropping heavily but at this point the ATR has already been overshot by 9 points (see the top left corner). We could see a counter trend movement in the pair where the trend line 1-3 might be a signal for a potential breakout for the long trade. Have in mind that this is a potential breakout only as point 5 might still extend to the downside. Signal for breakout is the break of 1.4296-98 to the upside and we might see EPA (Estimated Price at Arrival) target hit. EPA confluence with ATR is 1.4340-52. This is a strict Wolfe Wave because point 4 lies between points 1 and 2. more…

EUR/USD Bears Need A Close Below 1.0470

Nenad Kerkez

The EUR/USD spiked from the zone I showed on Session Recap providing pips to traders who traded longs in a form of counter trend trading. Generally speaking, the trend is still bearish and to me it is clear that a weekly close below 1.0470 is needed for further downside. Technically we see 2 most prominent trend lines on H4 chart that mark the downtrend. POC zone is spotted around 1.0410-20 on 4h charts. Weekly close below 1.0470 (slight below weekly camarilla pivot) should open the door for 1.0300 and 1.0280. 1.0470 is a strong order block and historical s/r level. Weekly pivot is making an X cross ™ with a trend line so it just adds to its strength. 4h close below 1.0280 would expose 1.0200. more…

Big Sideways Correction On EURUSD Completed; More Weakness Is Here

Gregor Horvat

EURUSD is turning sharply lower from the 1.1300 level where pair have finally accomplished a big and very long sideways pattern that was located in wave IV. It was a triangle which is now completed because of a decisive break beneath the blue wave D swing at 1.0847 level three weeks ago. As such we are now even more confident that bears may gain more momentum and at the start of a new week, make a decisive breach below blue wave B. more…

EUR/USD Is Waiting For ECB Meeting Today

Nenad Kerkez

Today the ECB meets in an important meeting that may decide whether the ECB QE programme continues at the current rate of EU80Bn in Bonds per month and the duration of the overall programme. Some analysts are suggesting the programme rate may reduce but the overall duration remains the same or longer, hence more assets on the ECB Balance Sheet over the longer term. How the market reacts to this, is much to be seen. FOMC is scheduled for next week, and many analysts tip a rate hike in the US, along with Bond markets pricing at least a 25bps rise, however, I am more of the view that they will wait until Trump’s inauguration as President before they hike, so they might be waiting until the February 2017 meeting. more…

EUR/GBP Potential Upside Move

Nenad Kerkez

The EUR/GBP is has a potential to break the range and proceed to the upside if we see a rejection off POC. POC comes within 0.8510-15 zone ( V shape, DPP, EMA89, trend line). If we don’t see a retracement to POC , pay attention to H1 close above descending trend line. The pair could reach 0.8550, 0.8575 and 0.8615 if there is a H1 momentum or 4h close above 0.8575. Additionally the pair rejected slightly above the bullish order block that is located just above L3 support. This further supports a bullish bias for this pair. more…

EUR/USD 1.0660 Zone Keeps Rejecting The Price

Nenad Kerkez

With all eyes firmly on the OPEC meeting this week to see if they cut oil production and raise the Oil price, other key items this week affecting USD is Advance GDP, Consumer Confidence, NFP and Unemployment rate. The EU reports its inflation numbers this week, a key concern for the ECB and Draghi also speaks again. EUR weakness may gain some traction as Italy holds its Constitutional Referendum, a No Vote win could lead to Renzi resigning, political instability in Italy and snap elections sooner rather than later. Bad debts held by Italian Banks stand near EU360Bn, and a No Vote along with political instability may lead to further pressures on Italian Banks ability to remain solvent and ensure the EU Banking systems is sound. more…

Elliott Wave Analysis On EURUSD And Crude OIL

Gregor Horvat

EURUSD is at the lows, so we are now even more confident that pair is making an extended wave three down from 1.0925. We see blue wave three already making a fifth sub-wave to the downside and that is why we need to be aware of a new short-term recovery that can show up. We are talking about blue wave four that can be very interesting to join the downtrend from around 1.0770/90 while price at 1.0864 is not breached. more…

EUR/USD High Momentum Candles On 4h Time Frame

Nenad Kerkez

The Trump’s victory on election reflected on the EUR/USD pair both during the elections and after London open. The pair spiked exactly as predicted in the latest EUR/USD analysis. As expected, the USD plummeted at the pinnacle of the vote count for the US Presidency, with the USD Index touching 95.83. We saw a movement of funds to safe haven currencies like the JPY and CHF, and surprisingly the EUR strengthened too. We saw the EURUSD hit 1.13 during those moments of the vote count, and yet we don’t know the overall impact on global trade as a result of Trump’s trade protectionism plans. We still need to wait and see if the funds leave the USD again. more…

Elliott Wave Analysis On AUDNZD And EURGBP

Gregor Horvat

For those who cannot stay aside during the elections I recommend to look for non USD pairs, as they can be less volatile. Below I am looking at AUDNZD that I would be looking to trade, but after the elections results. Chart shows a clear pattern; five waves up from 1.0235, followed by a contra-trend reaction that can either be finished at recent low, or maybe support will be found near the 1.0350-1.0400 area by the end of the week. The price action is bullish and it suggests more gains while market is above the 1.0235 mark. more…

EUR/AUD M Double Top Shaping Up

Nenad Kerkez

The EUR/AUD is making a progressive M pattern characterized by a double top which in turn makes a POC zone (H3, DPP, trend line) 1.4340-50. The move has already happened so any retest could reject the price again (2nd rejection). Ideally inner trend line should hold for continuation of bearish move. Further continuation is seen below the inner trend line and if H1 candle closes below 1.4280. Close below would target 1.4245 and h4 close below 1.4245 should aim for 1.4185. more…
