EUR/USD: общий обзор

Текущая динамика

Пара EUR/USD в ходе вчерашних торгов предприняла попытку роста, однако закрепиться выше уровня 1.0713 ей не удалось, и курс скорректировался вниз. Отсутствие новостного фона, а также неопределенность в отношении экономической политики нового президента США определяют текущий боковой характер движения EUR/USD. Из макроэкономических событий, способных оказать влияние на курс EUR/USD сегодня, можно выделить статистику по первичным заявкам на пособия по безработице в США (15:30 GMT+2), а также выступление представителя ФРС США Чарльза Эванса. Если слова Эванса будут содержать намёки на возможное повышение процентной ставки на мартовском заседании, то в краткосрочной перспективе пара EUR/USD может попасть под давление.

Уровни поддержки и сопротивления

На 4-часовом графике гистограмма MACD расположена в отрицательной зоне, объёмы её постепенно сокращаются, однако чёткого сигнала не дают. Полосы Боллинджера демонстрируют небольшое схождение, указывая на относительное спокойствие на рынке.
Уровни поддержки: 1.0699, 1.0622, 1.0588.
Уровни сопротивления: 1.0713, 1.0754, 1.0797.

GBP/USD: the pair is in a state of equilibrium

Current trend

On Thursday, the pair lost about a hundred points, reaching the middle line of Bollinger bands at 1.2500. Strengthening of the dollar was due to the Trump’s intention to present his proposals for tax reform in the near future. During the election campaign, he has already promised to reduce the tax burden on the American middle class and businesses as well as to reduce the rate of income tax and change the scale of progressive taxation. Now the market is waiting for the promised performance.

At the same time, yesterday the Head of the Bank of England Mark Carney didn’t mentioned monetary policy in his speech and could not provide support for the pound. Today's strong data on industrial production in the UK in December (+2.1% MoM and +4.0% YoY) also couldn’t help the British currency. Despite the fact that the British economy copes well with the consequences of Brexit, the pound has been falling since mid-January.

Support and resistance
From a technical point of view, the level of 1.2500 (middle line of Bollinger bands) is still the key level. Technical indicators do not give a clear picture: Stochastic turns up from the oversold zone, MACD histogram has low volumes, and the Bollinger Bands are directed horizontally. Under these conditions, important level for the "bulls" would be 1.2530 (Fibonacci correction 23.6%), breakout of which would allow the price to go up to the upper boundary of the descending channel (1.2600), and further, to 1.2690. After consolidation below the middle line of the Bollinger Bands, the pair may continue to decrease to the levels of 1.2526 (38.2% correction) and 1.2345 (50.0% correction).
Support levels: 1.2426, 1.2345 and 1.2265.
Resistance levels: 1.2530, 1.2600 and 1.2690.

Trading tips
In this situation, long positions can be opened above the level of 1.2530 with the targets at 1.2600 and 1.2690 and stop loss at 1.2500. At the level of 1.2475 short positions would become relevant with the targets at 1.2426 and 1.2345 and stop loss at 1.2505.

NZD/USD: general analysis

Current trend

During the last week the pair was lowering and lost about a half of the 2 months growth (more than 200 points). The decrease is a result of many factors. The first is the RBNZ decision to keep the interest rate on the same level of 1.75%, which is minimal for last 5 years. The lowering of the rate affects the national currency negatively.

Yesterday and today the price continues to test the strong and important level 0.7170, the cluster of 38% and 50% Fibonacci from the whole range of the price movement during the last 3 years and the last falling wave.

EUR/USD: general analysis

Current trend

Euro’s fall against the US Dollar that was happening since last week got a new impulse after the European Commission released its growth forecast on Monday. Despite being quite positive about the eurozone perspectives, the report highlighted a number of problems and uncertainties, such as GDP growth below expectations, upcoming negotiations with the UK about their departure from the EU, lack of clarity about intentions of the new Trump’s administration, as well as questions about the labour market and inflation.

Today attention needs to be paid to data on the Trade Balance from the eurozone and Consumer Price Index from the US, and also to Fed Chair Janet Yellen speech that could substantially support the Dollar.

However, with generally positive outlook for the eurozone, the recent decline in the Euro could be a search by large players for a good entry to purchase the pair.

Support and resistance

Support levels: 1.0500, 1.0340, 1.0210.
Resistance levels: 1.0650, 1.0707, 1.0820, 1.0930.

XAU/USD: general analysis

Current trend
Yesterday, gold was strengthened after the speech by Janet Yellen. In her speech, the head of the American regulator stressed that the next tightening of monetary policy depends directly on the statistics of labor market and real estate, as well as on the growth rate of inflation in the United States. At the same time Yellen highlighted the opinion of most members of the committee that delay of the interest rates raise would be unwise.

In addition, precious metals received support from the news of resignation of Michael Flynn. The adviser of US President for National Security admitted that he discussed the sanctions against Moscow with Russian ambassador before Trump entered the office. This news may serve as growth driver for XAU/USD in the medium term, as now, market participants are afraid of failure of Trump's plans to reduce the tax burden and to increase budget expenditures.
Today traders will pay attention to the publication of macroeconomic statistics on the US real estate, as well as on the US labor market. If both indicators will be positive for the US economy, the Fed will receive a strong signal to raise interest rates, which would support the dollar.

NZD/USD: the pair returns to the descending channel

Current trend
After the collision with the strong resistance level, the pair reversed and consolidated within the downtrend. The main catalyst for the trend change were recent statements of the Head of US Federal Reserve regarding a possible rise of interest rates in the near future.
This week's economic calendar doesn’t contain major releases, so the pair will be affected by the trading sentiment. To date, trading sentiment is in favor of the US dollar.
An alternative scenario in the short term would be the formation of sideways consolidation due to the lack of economic catalysts and decreasing demand.

Support and resistance
Technical indicators confirm the forecast of the fall: MACD shows a decrease in the volumes of short positions.
Support levels: 0.7105, 0.7080, 0.7035, 0.7005, 0.6970, 0.6915, 0.6885, 0.6860.
Resistance levels: 0.7175, 0.7200, 0.7310, 0.7370, 0.7400, 0.7445.

Trading tips
