NZD/USD: the instrument is strengthening 07.11.2018

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on the NZD/USD for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

NZD is rising steadily against USD, updating local highs of 2 August.

Investors are focused on midterm elections in the US: the American voter must decide who will take 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 33 seats in the Senate; besides, governors will be elected in some states. For the current administration, the most important election is the one for the House of Representatives. If the Democrats win, President Donald Trump’s position, especially in domestic politics, may noticeably weaken.

Today, NZD is supported by strong data on the labor market in New Zealand. Employment Rate rose by 1.1% QoQ in Q3 2018, with the forecast of 0.5% QoQ. Unemployment Rate decreased sharply from 4.5% to the record low of 3.9%.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart show active growth. The price range is expanding, but the instrument is currently trading outside its boundaries, indicating that the instrument is overbought. MACD indicator is growing keeping a stable buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic retains an upward direction, but is located in close proximity to its maximum levels, which signals in favor of the appearance of a downward correction.

It is necessary to wait for the trade signals from technical indicators to become clear.

Resistance levels: 0.6788, 0.6820, 0.6849.

Support levels: 0.6760, 0.6725, 0.6688, 0.6662.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 0.6788. Take profit — 0.6849. Stop loss — 0.6750. Implementation period: 1-2 days.

The rebound from the level of 0.6788 as from resistance with the subsequent breakdown of 0.6760 or 0.6750 can become a signal to begin correctional sales with target at 0.6662 or 0.6628, 0.6609. Stop loss should be placed no further than 0.6800. Implementation period: 2-3 days.

WTI Crude Oil: oil prices are falling 14.11.2018

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on the WTI Crude Oil for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

Yesterday, oil prices renewed the year’s lows. The commodity markets have been declining for the 6th week in a row due to the sharp increase in oil production, despite the current OPEC agreement. The published report of the cartel reflected an increase in forecasts for 2018 and 2019, as well as a sharp increase in the current level of production in October against September.

US "black gold" production increases significantly, too. Earlier this month, the Department of Energy announced that the country reached peak volumes of 11.346 million barrels per day. In this case, according to President Donald Trump, prices on the market should be much lower. Based on these considerations, Trump criticized Saudi Arabia’s intention to cut production and try to stabilize the market situation in the coming month.

Support and resistance

On the daily chart, Bollinger bands are steadily declining. The price range is widening but not as fast as the “bearish” moods are developing. MACD is falling, keeping a strong sell signal (the histogram is below the signal line). Stochastic has been close to its lows for several weeks, reflecting that the instrument is strongly oversold in the short and super short term.

A correction impulse formation is possible at the end of the current trading week.

Resistance levels: 57.00, 58.64, 60.00, 61.00.

Support levels: 54.72, 53.47, 52.41.





Trading tips

Long positions can be opened after a rebound from the level of 54.72 and a breakout of the level of 57.00 with the target at 60.00 or 61.00. Stop loss is 55.50. Implementation period: 2–3 days.

Short positions can be opened after the breakdown of the level of 54.72 with the targets at 52.41–52.00. Stop loss is 56.00. Implementation period: 1–2 days.

Use more opportunities of the NPBFX analytical portal: glossary. Beginning traders certainly face a lot of specialized concepts and lexicon on FOREX, which are often not fully been understood. Swap, tick, hedge, margin calls are often unfamiliar to beginning traders. But the lack of knowledge of these fundamentals make a competent market vision impossible. So glossary on the NPBFX analytical portal could be an excellent helper in this case, which contains all the main definitions with explanations in a compact and accessible form. All concepts are arranged in alphabetical order, so that you can easily and quickly find and explore a new concept for yourself.

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

Current trend

During the Asian session, NZD is in a “bearish” trend, being corrected after strong growth and the renewal of the highs since June 26 last week.

On Friday, USD was under pressure by statements by United States Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross. He noted that the US administration intends to increase tariffs on Chinese exports further, and at the meeting of President Trump and Chairman Xi Jinping at the G20 summit in Argentina, only a framework agreement can be concluded, which will serve a basis for further negotiations. Currently, the US administration suggested a list of 142 requirements from China, China submitted a list of possible concessions but, according to Bloomberg, it will not satisfy the US.

NZD is supported by strong data. October Manufacturing PMI rose from 51.7 to 53.5 points, which was better than the average experts' forecasts.

Support and resistance

On the daily chart, Bollinger bands are actively growing. The price range narrows, reflecting the development of correctional dynamics at the beginning of the week. MACD indicator is growing, keeping a strong buy signal (the histogram is above the signal line).

The formation of a full downward trend is possible in the next few days.

Resistance levels: 0.6882, 0.6920, 0.6954.

Support levels: 0.6849, 0.6814, 0.6788, 0.6750.

WTI Crude Oil: oil prices continue declining 23.11.2018

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on the WTI Crude Oil for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

WTI crude oil prices declined again on Thursday, returning to the downtrend after a corrective growth of the instrument on Wednesday.

The overall pressure on the quotes is provided by the EIA report published on Wednesday, which recorded a new increase in US oil reserves by 4.851M barrels. Thus, American oil reserves reached 446.91M barrels, the highest level since last December. Oil production remained at the same level of 11.7M barrels per day, while the strategic reserve continues to be sold: over the week, it fell by 0.8M, to 652.6M barrels.

Baker Hughes US Oil Rig Count reflected a decline in the number of platforms from 888 to 885 units, which, however, did not have a noticeable effect on the instrument dynamics.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate a stable decrease. The price range is almost unchanged, but remains sufficiently spacious for the further development of the downtrend in the short term. MACD indicator is trying to reverse upwards again and to form a buy signal (the histogram should be located above the signal line). Stochastic approached its minimum levels, having reversed into a horizontal plane. The indicator still reflects a strong oversold of the instrument in the short and/or ultra-short term.

Existing short positions should be kept until the situation clears up.

Resistance levels: 54.72, 55.64, 57.00, 58.64.

Support levels: 52.41, 51.32, 50.30, 50.00.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the rebound from the support level of 52.41 with the subsequent breakout of 54.30 or 54.72. Take profit — 58.64 or 60.00. Stop loss — 53.20. Implementation period: 2-3 days.

A breakdown of 52.41 may be a signal to further sales with target at 50.30 or 50.00. Stop loss — 53.40. Implementation period: 1-2 days.

NZD/USD: New Zealand dollar is in the correction 28.11.2018

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on NZD/USD for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

Yesterday, NZD rose against USD, continuing the development of the corrective “bullish” impulse formed at the beginning of the week, due to quite strong data on New Zealand exports and a weak US macroeconomic background.

Thus, in October, exports from New Zealand increased from 4.25 billion dollars to 4.86 billion, which was slightly better than the average market forecasts. Imports increased even more: from 5.85 billion dollars to $6.15 billion, which led to a worsening of the trade deficit. The October figure reached –5.79 billion YoY against –5.33 billion YoY in September.

Today, the pair is strengthening, waiting for new drivers to appear. Investors are focused on the speech of the head of the RBNZ, Adrian Orr, and a block of US statistics, followed by the speech of the Fed Governor Jerome Powell.

Support and resistance

On the daily chart, Bollinger bands reverse horizontally. The price range narrows, reflecting the ambiguous trade nature of the recent days. MACD indicator is reversing upwards, keeping the sell signal (the histogram is below the signal line). The dynamics of Stochastic are similar, which indicates the potential for the development of corrective growth in the super-short term.

It is better to wait for the final formation of the "bullish" signal.

Resistance levels: 0.6815, 0.6849, 0.6882.

Support levels: 0.6760, 0.6748, 0.6704, 0.6662.

Long positions can be opened after the breakout of the level of 0.6815 with the target at 0.6882 or 0.6900. Stop loss is 0.6780.

Short positions can be opened after the breakdown of the level of 0.6748 with the targets at 0.6662–0.6650. Stop loss is 0.6780.

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on NZD/USD for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

NZD showed uncertain growth against USD on Tuesday, having corrected after four "bearish" sessions in a row. Active "bullish" dynamics can be traced during the Asian session on December 12.

The traders are focused on US-China trade talks. Despite the condemnation by the Chinese side of the arrest of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou, there was no breakdown in the negotiations. Yesterday, Liu He, Vice-Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China, Stephen Mnuchin, the US Treasury, and Robert Lighthizer, the American sales representative, held telephone talks to discuss the supply of American agricultural products to China and the changes in support of Chinese industry "Made in China 2025". A schedule for further trade advice was also reviewed. Recall that on the eve of Lighthizer, citing President Donald Trump, said that the agreement with Beijing should be concluded before March 1, otherwise a new increase in US export duties is likely.

Interview with the winner of November Battle of Traders contest from NPBFX



The first Battle of Traders is successfully completed, opening the first page in the history of the contest. And for the winner of the contest, Vladimir from Krasnodar, a big way on Forex is just starting. Vladimir gave a short interview to NPBFX to share the secret of his trading system, his thoughts about other participants and emotions from his victory.

1. Vladimir, NPBFX congratulates you with a deserved victory and excellent trading results!

- Thanks!)

2. How did you know about the Battle of Traders in NPBFX? Why did you decide to participate?

- I’ve found the contest on the Internet by searching "contests for traders". Then I checked the contest terms on the NPBFX website and registered as a participant.

3. What emotions did you experience when you got information about your double victory: $1000 on a trading account and a special prize - the newest iPhone Xs?

- When I only started participating and saw the requirements to get an iPhone, I thought it was unreal! Increasing initial deposit minimum up to 50 times seemed to me an overstated requirement. But when I saw myself in the first place - it was something very special, emotions generally overwhelmed!
By the end of the last trading week I’ve managed to increase my account up to 50 times, so it was really hard for other participants to compete with me. I can compare my feelings at that moment with the day when my child was born!

4. That’s really great! Vladimir, what helped you to win? What are the main parts of your success?

- Patience and non-greed. I will explain. When trend goes your way and your profit grows, many traders want to get another 5-7 points, then more and more. But I stop and close the trade after reaching the goal, taking my profit and waiting patiently for the next moment to enter the market.

5. So I can see that you have no problems with trading psychology. You have shown an excellent trading result for the trading month: $253’222 with initial $5’000! Please, tell us a little about your trading system.

- I try to work from the levels of resistance and support in the crossing trading sessions: from Asia to Europe, from Europe to America.

6. Did you have any specific trading strategy referring to the results of other participants of the contest?

- Of course! This is the value of the competition. When you trade, you can evaluate yourself only by your trading result. And when you see others’ trading, you start asking questions: “Why is he better than me? Why does someone do it and I don’t?”
I remember how I was surprised in the first days of the contest that other participants already had 23 trades, 30 trades, 46 trades! I had only 7 trades on my account then. It was very interesting what strategy did they use, how did they work, did they monitor or use scalping?

7. The Battle of traders is a monthly contest in NPBFX. Are you planning to participate further?

- Definitely, yes. Even if I had finished at 101 place, I would got upset, but would participate again, hoping to win. And I wonder if I could succeed again. Today I have two goals. The first is to start working on a real NPBFX trading account and the second is to participate in the December Battle of Traders.

8. Vladimir, it would be great for traders who also took part in the contest to know more about you as a person. Please, tell us briefly about yourself (in which city you live, your age, profession, family, how long you are in Forex)?

- I’m 57 years old, live in Krasnodar with my family. I have a higher military education, but now I’m retired and work as a warehouse manager. I’m happy to have not only children, but already grandchildren. As for the Forex market, I have been trying it for about 5 years. Serious trading is being only for about 1.5 years.

9. What recommendations would you give to traders who take part in the December Battle of Traders?

- In my opinion, any trader who wants to succeed in such a fast changing financial market as Forex should not panic and be patient. The second advice is to set a goal and go there, do not turn either left or right. Then you will succeed!

10. Thank you for the good advice for our traders. Do you have any suggestions for NPBFX?

- I wish you prosperity, of course, and reaching understanding with clients in all situations. Want to sincerely thank NPBFX for an interesting and fair contest for traders!

Vladimir, thank you for participating in our contest and interesting interview. NPBFX wishes you new victories and achievements in the financial markets!
 
XAU/USD: gold prices are rising 24.12.2018

Good afternoon, dear forum visitors!

NPBFX offers the latest release of analytics on XAU/USD for a better understanding of the current market situation and more efficient trading.

Current trend

Gold prices resumed fairly steady growth during today's Asian session, approaching local highs updated on December 20 again. The instrument is supported by the situation around a possible slowdown in the tightening of the monetary policy of the US Federal Reserve.

After the December interest rate increase, most of the managers of the regulator said that next year the rate will be raised only twice.

In addition, investors continue to monitor the situation around the US-China trade relations and the growth of domestic political pressure in the United States. In particular, over the weekend, the Republican Party, led by Donald Trump, was not able to achieve the allocation of USD 5 billion for the project to build a wall on the border with Mexico. The US President said he would not sign such a budget, which led to the government shutdown once again.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart show moderate growth. The price range is expanding, but it fails to catch the development of "bullish" trend at the moment. MACD indicator is growing preserving a moderate buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic also keeps the uptrend, but approaches its maximum levels, which indicates the risks associated with overbought gold in the short and ultra-short term.

Existing "bullish" positions should be kept until the situation clears up.

Resistance levels: 1266.26, 1270.11, 1276.87.

Support levels: 1260.75, 1257.82, 1253.72, 1250.66.





Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the breakout of 1266.26. Take profit — 1276.87. Stop loss — 1260.75.

A breakdown of 1257.82 may be a signal to further sales with target at 1250.66 or 1247.00. Stop loss — 1264.00.

Implementation period: 2-3 days.
