NZDUSD Elliott Wave View: Downside Resumes

Daud Bhatti

Revised Elliott Wave view in NZDUSD suggests the decline from 3/21 high (0.709) is unfolding as a triple three Elliott Wave structure where Minute wave ((w)) ended at 0.6905, Minute wave ((x)) ended at 0.7053, Minute wave ((y)) ended at 0.6844 and Minute second wave ((x)) is proposed complete at 0.6968. Minute wave ((z)) is in progress and unfolding as a double three Elliott Wave structure where Minutte wave (w) ended at 0.6835 , and Minutte wave (x) is in progress to correct cycle from 5/2 high before pair resumes lower again. We don’t like buying the pair and expect bounces in Minutte wave (x) to find sellers in 3, 7, or 11 swing for more downside provided that pivot at 0.6968 high remains intact. more…

GBPUSD Trading In A Big Correction

Gregor Horvat

GBPUSD is moving sideways after pair recovered from that 1.1500 spike low where we see a completed wave three, so current structure is an ongoing fourth wave which can see more upside as we think that market can be in an A-B-C structure. That said, wave B triangle looks completed and current rally may be wave C, which can see limited upside around 38.2. more…

GBP/USD Stuck Between A Rock And A Hard Place

Fawad Razaqzada

On this day of last week, the pound had rallied by a cool 300 pips against the US dollar as investors welcomed news of a snap election in the UK, announced by UK Prime Minister Theresa May. Market participants apparently came to the conclusion that Theresa May will have a stronger mandate to secure the UK’s EU exit from the EU as she will be able to push back hard deadlines for a trade deal until the next election in 2022, assuming she wins this one. But after that sharp rally, the more…

GBP/USD Bullish Cup With Handle Formation

Nenad Kerkez

The GBP/USD has formed a cup with handle pattern on H1 timeframe, suggesting further upside. W H4 camarilla is acting as support as the price broke above it, and it forms a clear handle at the brim of a cup. 1.2480 might spike the price to the upside, targeting D H3 H4 and H5 levels respectively, -1.2516, 1.2538, and 1.2580. If the price breaks below the handle, look for possible POC (D L3, double bottom, ATR pivot) 1.2425-45 rejection. more…

USD/JPY De-Risking Ahead Of Trump-Xi Meeting

Nenad Kerkez

As shown on Live Trading Session yesterday, the USD/JPY fell as expected due by overnight sell off in equities. Equities dropped due to de-risking ahead of Trump-Xi meeting, so we might see another bearish rejection on retracement. The POC 110.80-95 ( D H3, EMA89, ATR Pivot, trend line) could reject the price towards 110.18. Break below it should target 109.77 – the strongest daily support. more…

Daud Bhatti

Although the Fed is in the rate hike cycle, USD rally started to lose momentum early this year when market started to realize that monetary policy divergence started to narrow. ECB has started to talk about rate hikes, while China started to tighten monetary policy by raising money market rates early last month. The Fed also sounded less hawkish in their last rate hike as they forecasted only three rate hikes this year and no Fed members agreed to hike rate four times. more…
