GBPUSD: Expected Fall To 1.5145

Vladislav Antonov

On Thursday the pound/dollar was trading above the LB in a range of 70 points. In the first half of the day the rate dropped to 1.5173 and in the second it returned to 1.5240. It’s now at 1.5199. If European trading sees a break of the 1.5191 support (LB and trend), I’ll be expecting a weakening of the pound to the 67th degree at 1.5145 (technical signal without any fundamental news).. more…

GBPUSD : H&S Pattern Suggests More Weakness In Sight

Gregor Horvat

Pound fell sharply yesterday across the board, especially against the USD. We can see a new leg down for more than 200 pips beneath the trendline connected from October 13th which suggests that price is headed much lower. From an EW perspective we see a completed wave (2) now at 1.5500 so current decline is impulsive that should finally break below 1.5105 low from end of September. At the same time we see bearish head and shoulder pattern, now completed as well which also suggests lower prices in days ahead. more…

GBPUSD: Waiting For BoE Decision

Vladislav Antonov

My forecast worked a treat. The pound/dollar dropped to 1.5360 from the LB. The pound didn’t fall too much because the euro/pound was holding it back. Today’s key event for the financial market is the Bank of England meeting. Forecasters expect the base rate to be left unchanged at 0.5%. The results of the MPC voting and what Carney has to say afterwards will bear importance for traders. more…

AUDUSD Bears Are Patiently Waiting

Nenad Kerkez

The AUDUSD has had a relief rally after the RBA decided to keep the rates at 2 %. The RBA indicated at the start of 2015 that it wanted to achieve 0.75 for the AUDUSD pair; currently it has surpassed this achievement as it is currently at 0.7200. As I have also explained 2 days ago on that basis, I doubt the RBA will cut rates further. Having said that, if commodities continue to weaken further, expect AUDUSD to weaken further under free markets. more…

USD/CNH Continues To Edge Lower After China’s Fifth Plenum, Mixed Manufacturing Data

Matt Weller

Late last week, China wrapped up the “Fifth Plenary Session of the 18th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China.” In case you don’t follow politics closely, this mouthful of a meeting just means that all the leading members of China’s Communist Party came together to discuss social, economic, and environmental policy over the next five years. more…

AUDUSD : Price Trading Near Channel, More Gains Could Follow

Gregor Horvat

AUDUSD is trading higher after no change in rates from the RBA members. Price rallied nicely up to 0.7200, now trading at resistance line of a corrective channel where successful breakout with a daily close around 0.7250 would put bullish prices back in play. In that case we will look back towards 0.7400 as decline from October highs would be treated as a completed correction. more…

EURUSD Facing A Correction

Gregor Horvat

EURUSD fell again on Wednesday after recent consolidation to 1.1090 that we labeled it as wave 4. After that we have seen wave 5 down now that hit 261.8% extension of wave 1 which means that support can be near. We can already see some recovery back to 1.1000 so ideally correction is now in play back to 1.1100-1.1150 resistance area, from where new leg down may occur at the start of November. more…
