Intraday technical levels and trading recommendations for GBP/USD for November 22, 2016

Share This: The price zone between 1.3845 and 1.3550 (historical bottoms set in January 2009) was considered a significant demand zone to be watched for bullish recovery. However, by the end of June a significant bearish break below 1.3550 was expressed as seen on the depicted charts (fundamental reasons). Bearish persistence below the demand level at 1.3550 enhanced the bearish scenario towards the current price levels around 1.2700 (nearest bearish projection target). Note that the GBP/USD pair was trapped inside the depicted consolidation range above 1.2700 until a bearish breakout took place on October 6. Daily persistence below 1.2700 confirmed the bearish Flag pattern. That’s why, bearish projection target would be located around 1.2020. Recently, bullish recovery was manifested around 1.2080. That is why, a bullish pullback was being executed towards 1.2700. The recent bullish pullback towards 1.2700 was suggested to be watched for a valid SELL entry. The bearish engulfing candlestick of the previous week enhances this scenario. S/L should be lowered to 1.2600 to offset the associated risk. T/P levels should be located at 1.2300 (reached already) and 1.2100. The material has been provided by InstaForex Company – www.instaforex.com Source: Instaforex

Intraday technical levels and trading recommendations for EUR/USD for November 22, 2016

Share This: In January 2015, the EUR/USD pair moved below the major demand levels near 1.2100 where historical bottoms were previously set in July 2012 and June 2010. Hence, a long-term bearish target was projected towards 0.9450. In March 2015, the EUR/USD bears challenged the next monthly demand level around 1.0570, which had been previously reached in August 1997. Later in April 2015, a strong bullish recovery was observed around the mentioned demand level. However, next monthly candlesticks (September, October, and November) reflected a strong bearish rejection around the area of 1.1400-1.1500. Again in February 2016, the depicted price levels around 1.1400-1.1500 acted as a significant supply zone during the bullish pullback. That is why, recent bearish rejection was expected around the depicted supply levels (note the monthly candlesticks of May, August, and October 2016). In the longer term, the level of 0.9450 will remain a projected bearish target when the current monthly candlestick comes to close below the depicted monthly demand level of 1.0570. The long-term outlook for the EUR/USD pair remains bearish as the monthly chart illustrates. Bearish persistence below 1.0825 is needed to enhance this bearish scenario. In September 2016, temporary bullish breakout above 1.1250 was expressed again, but evident bearish pressure was applied on the EUR/USD pair on September 16. Bearish closure below 1.1250 (supply level 1) maintained enough bearish pressure and enhanced the bearish momentum towards the price level of 1.1000 (key level 1). On November 9, obvious bearish breakdown of the 1.1000 price level occurred (Shooting Star daily candlestick). Moreover, further bearish decline below 1.0825 (Fibonacci Expansion 100%) was expressed. The current bearish persistence below 1.0825 allowed further bearish decline to occur towards 1.0570 (demand level) where price action should be watched for short-term bullish recovery and a possible BUY entry. On the other hand, bearish closure below the depicted demand level around 1.0570 allows further bearish decline. Initial bearish target would be located around 1.0220. On the other hand, the price level of 1.0825 (Fibo Expansion 100%) constitutes a recent supply level to be watched for a SELL entry if any bullish pullback occurs.

Global macro overview for 21/11/2016

Share This: Global macro overview for 21/11/2016: UK Prime Minister Theresa May said in a speech at the Confederation of British Industry’s annual conference in London that after Brexit the UK needs to be prepared to adapt and change. She stated that the underlining driving force for the Brexit vote was the people’s call for a fairer economy and this is why the big business should work with the government in order to ensure the benefits of capitalism are shared more equally. Moreover, she pledged to cut the UK corporation tax to the levels lower than US and the aim is the UK to have the lowest corporate tax rate among G20 nations. And last, but not least, she promised £2bn of investment in science and research and tax breaks for innovators after Brexit. In conclusion, some bold statements from the UK PM can not be neglected. Ambitious promises, plans and a fresh approach towards a new way of thinking for government-business relationships can make the real difference in a post-Brexit UK. Let’s now take a look at the GBP/USD technical picture in the 4H time frame. The market rallied slightly after May’s speech, but so far it stopped at first intraday resistance at the level of 1.2390. Nevertheless, the key support at the level of 1.2333 looks solid and the bounce might extend higher towards the next technical resistance at the level of 1.2511.

Technical analysis of USD/CAD for November 21, 2016

Share This: General overview for 21/11/2016: The top for the wave b (green) has been established at the level of 1.3566 and now the market is declining towards the intraday support at the level of 1.3398. This is why the intraday support is the key level for daytraders as any breakout below it will confirm the wave c (green ) is in progress. The projected target zone for the wave c (green) is the demand zone between the levels of 1.3290 – 1.3312. Support/Resistance: 1.3596 – WR1 1.3566 – Intraday Resistance 1.3497 – Weekly Pivot 1.3419 – WS1 1.3398 – Intraday Support 1.3308 – WS2 Trading recommendations: The corrective upward wave progression is about to be completed, so this is why the daytraders should consider opening only sell orders with tight SL and TP open for now.

Technical analysis of EUR/JPY for November 21, 2016

Share This: General overview for 21/11/2016: The old top for the wave (b) (blue) has been violated and this is why the new labeling has been made. Currently, the wave c (green) has reached almost 100% expansion of the wave a (green) and this might be the reason why the top for the wave Y (brown) of the (b) (blue) is in place. The bears must break out below the intraday support and head lower towards the weekly pivot at the level of 116.99 in order to confirm this scenario. Support/Resistance: 118.47 – WR1 118.41 – Intraday Resistance 117.47 – Intraday Support 116.99 – Weekly Pivot 116.49 – WS1 116.24 – Local Low Trading recommendations: The corrective upward wave progression is about to be completed or it has completed already, so this is why the daytraders should consider opening only sell orders with tight SL and TP open for now.

USD/CAD intraday technical levels and trading recommendations for November 18, 2016

Share This: On May 16, a bullish pullback towards 1.3000 (61.8% Fibonacci level) was expected to offer a valid signal to sell the USD/CAD pair. However, a lack of a significant bearish rejection was manifested during recent consolidations. On May 18, temporary bullish fixation above 1.3000 (61.8% Fibonacci level) opened the way towards the 1.3180 level where significant bearish pressure was originated. Bearish persistence below 1.3000-1.2970 (61.8% Fibonacci level) was needed to enhance bearish momentum in the market. However, on August 18 signs of bullish recovery were manifested around the price level of 1.2830 which led to the current bullish breakout above 1.3000. The USD/CAD pair was trapped between the price levels of 1.3000 (61.8% Fibonacci level) and 1.3360 (50% Fibonacci level) until bullish breakout took place two weeks ago. Note that the USD/CAD pair was challenging the upper limit of the depicted flag pattern around 1.3360-1.3400 which failed to apply enough bearish pressure on the pair. Bullish persistence above 1.3360 will probably liberate a quick bullish movement towards 1.3650 unless the pair comes to close below 1.3360 before the end of the current week.
