GBP/JPY Inverted Triangle Upside Broken

Nenad Kerkez

Global equities rally that extended in Asia session weakened the Yen and it fell vs its main counterparts USD and GBP. Both USD/GBP/JPY are heavily connected to Equity markets and when Equities are going up both USD/JPY and GBP/JPY are going up too. The pair has formed an Inverted Triangle (ConTriangle) and subsequently broke its top so we might see a retest-continuation. more…

GBP/USD POC Zone Is 1.2250-75

Nenad Kerkez

The spike that was caused after Theresa May’s conference was successfully faded as we predicted in the previous GBP/USD coverage. However it has been clear that 1.2250 is very important support and that it needs to break for further bearish continuation. However if GBP/USD keeps above 1.2250-75 (Bullish order block, H3 weekly camarilla, 50.0 fib, EMA89) we might see an extension towards 1.2412 and 1.2480. 1.2300 is support now and the break of support might retest the POC zone. However if 1.2250 breaks to the downside we might see 1.2200 followed by 1.2150. more…

GBP/JPY More Downside Expected

Nenad Kerkez

When other pairs are moving in a low ATR, the GBP/JPY aka “The Dragon” simply doesn’t care about thin holiday liquidity. ATR of last seven days is 115 and that leaves traders with a more room to trade it. Technically we have 2 POC zones. The first POC zone 143.35-143.50 (38.2, bearish order block, ATR level) could reject the price should the pair retrace. Slightly above it is POC2 143.60-85 (H3,50.0, DPP, ATR projected top). Traders should pay attention to possible ejections from the zones towards 143.00 and 142.40. more…

PRE FOMC Analysis: GBP/USD Is Close To Support

Nenad Kerkez

The main event this month is FOMC Economic projection with statement and Federal Funds Rate decision. Market expects a hike of 0.25 % (from 0.50% to 0.75%). Any deviation from expected result will move the USD heavily. Today’s GBP data was better than expected with Average Earnings Index coming +0.2 % better than expected while the change in the number of people claiming unemployment-related benefits during the previous month dropped to 2.4k. more…

Pound Bruised But Not Broken (Again)

Fawad Razaqzada

The pound has fallen sharply over the past couple of days. It has been among (if not) the worst performer in G10 currencies. As well as uncertainty over how and when the Brexit process will start, the pound has been undermined by weakness in UK data as industrial production in October suffered its worst month since 2012. The currency’s latest drop is not exactly gigantic, but it does represent a sizeable retracement against the recent gains made amid hopes of a ‘soft’ Brexit. I do however think the worst of the selling is over as the Bank of England is no longer looking to cut interest rates again. But it nevertheless remains vulnerable to sharp falls here and there. However against weaker currencies like the Japanese yen, it may be able to stage a comeback soon. 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…

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…

GBP/USD Watch For 1.2225-50 Zone

Nenad Kerkez

The GBP/USD is still sold on rallies as analysed in our previous analysis. Today First Brexit hearing begins in the UK High Court and there could be some whipsaw movements in the currency pair. From technical perspective POC zone comes within 1.2225-50 and the zone is a bit wider due to high ATR. The pair is contained within the equidistant channel and we can spot a confluence of channel top, H3 and bearish order block. If the pair retraces to the zone we might see a rejection towards 1.2150 and 1.2090. Only a 4h close below 1.2090 could tank the pair lower to sub 1.2000 level 1.1990 where we see a confluence of H5 and channel bottom. However if the pair gets above 1.2300 we might see a breakout towards 1.2355 that will be a sign of a deeper retracement in the GBP/USD pair. more…
