LiteForex: Brent Crude Oil: general review

Current trend

The price of Brent Crude oil reversed around the three-month highs and is now correcting.
According to API, the volume of oil reserves increased by 5.321 million barrels. Tonight the market is waiting for similar data by EIA. Experts await a slight decrease in volumes by 0.287 million barrels, but these forecasts may be erroneous and the pressure on oil prices may continue.
On the one hand, OPEC+ continue to cut oil production in order to rebalance the market. On the other hand, the increase in prices leads to the activation of American shale companies. Meanwhile, the growth in the number of oil rigs in the US, according to Baker Hughes, has resumed: last week, their number was 804 units. And this is far from the limit – in 2014 their number exceeded 1,500 units.
Regarding this, Saudi Arabia offered Russia to continue cooperation in the oil sector after the OPEC+ agreement ends, for another 10-20 years. It is not clear yet whether it will be accepted. The key Russian players expect on the expansion of production. By 2022, Rosneft plans to increase its oil production by 10%, to 250 million tons.

Support and resistance

Technically, the price tests the 68.75 mark (Murray [4/8]) and, when consolidated below it, it can drop to the levels of 67.18 (Murray [3/8]) and 65.62 (Murray [2/8]). Otherwise, growth may resume to 70.31 (Murray [5/8]) and 71.87 (Murray [6/8]). The probability of decline is confirmed by Stochastic, which leaves the overbought zone.
Support levels: 68.75, 67.18, 65.62.
Resistance levels: 70.31, 71.87.

Trading tips

Short positions may be opened below 68.75 mark with targets at 67.18, 65.62 and stop-loss at 69.10.

LiteForex: USD/CAD: general analysis

Current trend

Yesterday, USD strengthened against CAD due to the release of strong US GDP data, which exceeded the investors’ expectations and grew from 2.5% to 2.9%. The visit of the leader of North Korea Kim Jong-un to China supports the US currency, too. The experts consider it as an intention of DPRK to start the dialogue with the world society and with USA via Beijing, in particular. The trade negotiations between the USA and China continue. Trump’s Administration is now reviewing the possibility to restrict Chinese investments in enterprises and technologies, sensitive to the national safety. As a result, the decrease of the US stock market slowed, which, after the rapid fall on Tuesday, affected the dollar positively.
CAD is under additional pressure of the decrease in oil prices and some disagreements of Canada and US relating to NAFTA. The market is waiting for Canadian GDP release at 14:30 (GMT+2), the possibility of the growth of the index restricts the further growth of the pair.

Support and resistance

On the 4-hour chart, the instrument is trading within the upper border and the middle line of Bollinger Bands, the price range is widened, which reflects the possible development of the upward movement. MACD histogram is around the zero line, its volumes are minimal, and the signal line is directed upwards.
Resistance levels: 1.2930, 1.2950, 1.3000, 1.3050, 1.3070, 1.3100, 1.3130.

Today, the pair is calm: due to Good Friday, many of the financial enterprises are on holiday. The news that the USA President Trump can postpone the implementation of the new Agreement on free trade with South Korea supported the euro insignificantly. This week the countries agreed on a US companies access to South Korean automobile and medicine markets and the abolition of the US fees on the import metals.

LiteForex: Brent Crude Oil: general review

Current trend

On Monday, prices fell sharply, and Brent Crude oil is currently trading around 67.50.
Quotes were pressured by a decision of the Chinese authorities to impose import duties on 128 US products, among which frozen pork, wine, some types of fruit and steel factory goods. Investors knew of the potential retaliatory measures, but there was a hope that their introduction would not happen while Washington and Beijing are conducting trade consultations.
In addition, the instrument is pressured by first Russia's failure since the beginning of the OPEC agreement+ to comply with its terms and exceeding the quotas of oil production. According to the Russian Minister of Energy Alexander Novak, this was due to increased production of gas condensate due to cold weather and a traditional increase in production before the spring prophylactic works.
In the evening, the market is waiting for the publication of API data on commercial oil reserves in the US. If they grow again, oil prices will continue to decline.

Support and resistance

The technical picture is uncertain. Bollinger Bands have turned down, confirming the downward trend. But Stochastic is reversing in the oversold zone, which indicates a possible upward correction. In the breakout of the 67.96 mark (Murray [7/8]), the instrument can be adjusted to the level of 68.75 (Murray [8/8], the midline of Bollinger Bands). In the breakdown of 67.18 mark (Murray [6/8]), the decline will continue to levels of 66.40 (Murray [5/8]) and 65.62 (Murray [4/8]).
Support levels: 67.18, 66.40, 65.62.
Resistance levels: 67.96, 68.75.

Trading tips

Short positions may be opened below the level of 67.18 with targets at 66.40, 65.62 and stop-loss at 67.60.
Long positions may be opened above the level of 67.96 with the target at 68.75 and stop-loss at 67.70.

LiteForex: Brent Crude Oil: general review

Current trend

Currently, the main drivers for the price movement are news about the US-China trade confrontation. On Friday, quotes of Brent Crude oil fell to the area of 66.60 after the news that the US administration is working on the possibility to impose another import duties on a number of Chinese goods totaling USD 100 billion. The additional pressure on the instrument was provided by the data of Baker Hughes, according to which the number of oil rigs in the United States began to rise and amounted to 808 units.
Today, quotes are trying to correct in view of President Trump statements, which expressed confidence that China will make concessions, a deal on intellectual property issues will be concluded, and both countries "await an excellent future". In addition, prices are supported by the worsening tensions in the Middle East, related to Israeli air strikes against targets in Syria.

Support and resistance

Technically, the price rose above the level of 67.18 (Murray [6/8]). However, sell positions will become relevant only if the instrument is consolidated above the midline of Bollinger Bands. At the same time, quotes may rise to the area of 68.45-68.75. Possible growth is confirmed by Stochastic, which reversed upwards, and MACD histogram, which decreases in the negative zone. If the instrument consolidates below the 67.18 mark, it may lead to a drop to levels of 66.40 (Murray [5/8]) and 65.62 (Murray [4/8]).
Support levels: 67.18, 66.40, 65.62.
Resistance levels: 68.45, 68.75.

LiteForex: EUR/USD: general analysis

Current trend

Today the pair continued to grow and exceeded the level of 1.2359 (Murray [5/8], H4).
The USA President Donald Trump tried to calm the market down, saying in his Twitter, that China will make concessions, that intellectual property deal will be made, and a beautiful future expects both of the counties. However, the investors have some doubts, as US Administration is preparing the new list of Chinese goods to be taxed. Chinese authorities have mentioned many times, that they did not want a trading war but will defend government interests to the last.
At the beginning of the week, there was reported that USA-China trade negotiations were deadlocked due to Washington's demand Beijing to stop the subsidizing of the industrial sectors within the program “Made in China 2025”, as there can be used technologies, taken from US companies. Earlier Chinese authorities were ready to decrease US trade deficit by 50 billion through the import of liquefied gas, agricultural product, and luxury items.

Support and resistance

The price is tending to the level of 1.2390 (Murray [3/8]), and in case of the breakout can grow to the levels of 1.2451 (Murray [4/8]) and 1.2512 (Murray [5/8]). However, the area of 1.2390–1.2451 is at the border of the middle term trade range, which reflects the possibility of a reversal and decrease to the levels of 1.2329 (Murray [2/8], the middle line of Bollinger Bands) and 1.2207 (Murray [0/8]).
Resistance levels: 1.2390, 1.2451, 1.2512.
Support levels: 1.2329, 1.2207.

Trading tips

Long positions can be opened above the level of 1.2390 with the targets at 1.2451, 1.2512 and stop loss around 1.2360.
Short positions can be opened after the reversal of the price around the level 1.2390 with the targets at 1.2329, 1.2207 and stop loss around 1.2410.

LiteForex: Brent Crude Oil: general analysis

Current trend

Oil prices reached its highs since 2014 around the level of 70.85.
Firstly, the growth of the tense in the Middle East supports the prices. US missile attack on Syria and the possible Russian answer can lead to unpredictable consequences. Unconfirmed reports indicate that insurgents of Yemen have attacked the oil-producing infrastructure of Saudi Arabia company Saudi Aramco for the first time. Secondly, the investors were positive upon the lowering of the tone of the rhetoric of President Trump and General Secretary Xi Jinping, which gives hope for the settlement of USA-China trade dispute. Lastly, EIA decreased this year’s US oil production forecast to 1.37 million barrel per day instead of 1.38 million barrel per day, predicted earlier.
As a result, the market has almost not noticed the growth of API Oil Recourses by 1.76 million barrel.

Support and resistance

The indicators reflect that the price can grow to the levels of 71.87 (Murray [6/8]) and 73.43 (Murray [7/8]): Bollinger Bands and Stochastic are pointed upwards; MACD histogram is in the positive zone. The consolidation of the price below the level of 70.31 can lead to the correction to the area of 68.75 (Murray [4/8], the middle line of Bollinger Bands) and 67.18.
Resistance levels: 71.87, 73.43.
Support levels: 70.31, 68.75, 67.96.

Trading tips

Long positions can be opened at the current level with the targets at 71.87, 73.43 and stop loss 70.30.
Short positions can be opened at the level of 70.00 with the targets at 68.75, 67.96 and stop loss 70.40.

In case of success, it can grow to the levels of 108.60 ([6/8], H4) and 109.37 ([6/8]). Otherwise, the correction to the levels of 106.25 ([4/8], the middle line of Bollinger Bands), 105.50 ([–2/8], H4) can develop.
Technical indicators support the growth роста. Bollinger Bands and Stochastic are reversing upwards, MACD histogram is growing in the positive zone.

Any tightening of the US-China trade conflict can cause a downwards correction despite the buy signals of the indicators.

Support and resistance

Resistance levels: 107.81 ([5/8]), 108.60 ([6/8], H4), 109.37 ([6/8]).
Support levels: 106.25 ([4/8]), 105.50 ([–2/8], H4), 104.68 ([3/8]).

LiteForex: GBP/USD: general review

Current trend

On Tuesday, the pair attempted a downward correction after the publication of mixed data from the UK labor market.
In February, the unemployment rate fell from 4.3% to 4.2%, which is the lowest level since 1975. In turn, the wage (with premiums) growth remained at the same level of 2.8% (3MoY), while an increase to 3.0% was expected. Thus, the wages growth still did not exceed the inflation rate, which in February was 2.9% (3MoY). Nevertheless, investors have hope that BoE will increase the interest rate in May, given that the regulator's representatives expect to accelerated increase in average wages due to lower unemployment.
Yesterday's meeting of the British Parliament did not entail significant consequences for the government of Theresa May. The deputies criticised hard the prime minister's decision not to consult with them before striking a missile strike on Syria. Perhaps a law will be passed banning such actions of the government.

Support and resistance

Technically, the price reached the January highs at around 1.4343. If the instrument is consolidated above this level, growth may continue to 1.4400 (Murray [8/8]) and 1.4465 (Murray [+1/8]) marks.
However, technical indicators still allow correction. On H4 chart, Stochastic left the overbought zone, and is going to do this on D1. A serious decrease will be possible only if the instrument is consolidated below the 1.4282 mark (Murray [6/8]) and the midline of Bollinger Bands. Then, the decline is possible to the levels of 1.4221 (Murray [5/8]) and 1.4160 (Murray [4/8]).
Support levels: 1.4282, 1.4221, 1.4160.
Resistance levels: 1.4343, 1.4400, 1.4465.

Trading tips

Long positions may be opened from 1.4360 mark with targets at 1.4400, 1.4465 and stop-loss at 1.4330.
Short positions may be opened from 1.4265 mark with targets at 1.4221, 1.4160 and stop-loss at 1.4295.

LiteForex: EUR/USD: general review

Current trend

Today, the pair made a slight attempt to correct after the publication of weak data on inflation in the Eurozone. In March, the basic consumer price index remained unchanged at 1.0% and the general consumer price index was below forecasts amounting to 1.3%.
However, EUR is playing out the positions, which is fueled by fears ща rising tensions in the US-China trade conflict. On Tuesday, it became known that Washington introduced a ban on the supply of American goods and technology to ZTE, the second largest Chinese manufacturer of telecommunications equipment and mobile phones. This is a very sensitive blow for the company, which could lead to bankruptcy in the future. Currently, 25-30% of components in ZTE products are manufactured in the US, and mobile phones use Google’s Android OS. Probably, this decision of the US will have consequences: The PRC's Ministry of Commerce has already stated that it will defend the interests of Chinese companies, but specific response measures have not been announced so far.

Support and resistance

In the near future, the instrument can resume growth, seeking to return to the central Murray channel (1.2390-1.2512). This is evidenced by MACD histogram growing in the positive zone and Stochastic reversing upwards.
The level of 1.2329 (Murray [2/8], the middle line of Bollinger Bands) is seen as key for the "bears". In case of its breakdown, the price may continue to decline to the area of 1.2207 (Murray [0/8], the bottom line of Bollinger Bands).
Support levels: 1.2329, 1.2207.
Resistance levels: 1.2390, 1.2451, 1.2512.

Trading tips

Long positions may be opened above the level of 1.2390 with targets at 1.2451, 1.2512 and stop-loss at 1.2350.
Short positions will become relevant if the instrument consolidates below 1.2329 with the target at 1.2207 and stop-loss at 1.2370.

LiteForex: USD/JPY: general analysis

Current trend

JPY is going down against USD due to Tuesday’s mixed Japanese data releases. Import level decreased to –0.6% in March from 16.6% in the previous month. Export didn’t meet the expectations of 4.7% and reached 2.1% in March against 1.8% in the previous month. Trade Balance grew to 797.3 billion JPY in March from 2.6 billion JPY in the previous month.
The meeting of the Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and President Donald Trump in Florida haven’t brought great results. At the closing press conference, it was stated that the parties are ready to restart the trade negotiations. America is trying to decrease the trade balance deficit with Japan, which now is 56.1 billion USD. Abe did not achieve the abolition or postponing of US steel and aluminum fees implementation.
On Friday, the investors are waiting for Japanese March inflation data release. The National Consumer Price Index is expected to decrease from 1.5% to 1.1%, and base CPI from 1.0% to 0.9%. In this scenario, JPY will be affected negatively.

Support and resistance

Key “bullish” level is 107.81 (Murray [6/8]), after the breakout the growth to the levels of 108.59 (Murray [7/8]) and 109.37 (Murray [8/8]) is possible. After the breakdown of the level of 107.00 (Murray [5/8]) the downward correction can develop to the level of 106.25 (Murray [4/8]). However, technical indicators reflect the growth. Bollinger Bands are pointed upwards, MACD histogram is growing in the positive zone, and Stochastic is trying to reverse upwards.
Resistance levels: 107.81, 108.59, 109.37.
Support levels: 107.00, 106.25.

Trading tips

Long positions can be opened above the level of 107.81 with the targets at 108.59, 109.37 and stop loss near the level of 107.40.
Short positions can be opened after the price is set below the level of 107.00 with the target at 106.25 and stop loss near the level of 107.40.
The price can reach the target levels within a week.

LiteForex analitics. GBP/USD: Mark Carney disappointed investors

Current trend

On Thursday, after a weak attempt for growth, the pair has been sharply adjusted and is currently trading at around 1.4038.
Investors were disappointed by the comments of the Bank of England's head Mark Carney, who noted that the increase in the interest rate depends on the final deal on Brexit. Carney also noted the weakness of recent data on retail sales and too rapid reduction of inflation. All this has caused investors to doubt that BoE will decide to raise the rate in May, although the probability persists.
Additional pressure on the pound was provided by EU representatives who rejected all proposals of the British party on the Irish border. The question on the border between Northern Ireland, part of the United Kingdom, and the Republic of Ireland, an EU member, is now considered the most important in the negotiations. Both parties agree that the physical border should not exist here after Brexit, but they can not decide how to monitor the trade and movement of citizens.

Support and resistance

LiteForex analitics. GBP/USD: general analysis

Current trend

Yesterday the pair tried to enter the upward correction. It is now trading around 1.3960. The pound is supported by a reduction in public sector borrowing. In March, the indicator was –0.262 billion pounds. Thus, Chancellor Hammond continues the policy of reducing government spending and borrowing, which began after the referendum on Brexit.
The investors are focused on Brexit negotiations. The main discussion goes within the British government and the Parliament, which is persuading Theresa May to let the UK stay in the Customs Union, while a number of key ministers, including David Davis and Boris Johnson, insists on the immediate leaving it. Today Brexit Minister Davis again claimed that after leaving Customs Union, UK will benefit a lot and can increase the country’s share in the world trade. He also noted that after the end of Brexit process, a number of bilateral trade agreements can be made with different counties, for example, with Canada.

Support and resistance

Technical picture is mixed. In case of the breakdown of the level of 1.3916 (Murray [2/8]), the price can fall to the levels of 1.3793 (Murray [1/8]) and 1.3671 (Murray [0/8]), which is confirmed by MACD, ready to enter the negative zone, and Bollinger Bands, reversing downwards. However, Stochastic is reversing in the oversold area, so a correction can develop to the middle line of Bollinger Bands to the area of 1.4090 or 1.4160 (Murray [4/8]).
Resistance levels: 1.4090, 1.4160.
Support levels: 1.3916, 1.3793, 1.3671.

Trading tips

Long positions can be opened at the level of 1.4000 with the targets at 1.4090 and 1.4160 and stop loss near the level of 1.3960.
Short positions can be opened below the level of 1.3916 with the targets at 1.3793, 1.3671 and stop loss around 1.3950.

LiteForex analitics. EUR/USD: general analysis

Current trend

The pair weakened to the level of 1.2170, where it is now trading, waiting for European regulator’s decision.
In the absence of significant economic statistics releases, investors are preparing for the ECB meeting, which will be held on Thursday. Interest rate change is not expected. Moreover, regarding the recent weak economic data on inflation, retail sales and industrial production in the Eurozone, the regulator can delay the curtailment of the QE program. In these conditions, more attention will be paid to the text of the accompanying statement and the press conference of Mario Draghi, who may hint at further steps of the ECB.
Chinese-American trade conflict is developing. According to The Wall Street Journal, another smartphones producer in China, Huawei, can be limited in US accessories supplies and be prohibited from Android software. Earlier ZTE was limited this way, but Beijing did not respond yet.

Support and resistance

The technical picture is mixed. The price has left the main Murray trade range and has fallen below the level of 1.2207 (Murray [0/8]), which reflects the possibility of a correction to the levels of 1.2268 (Murray [1/8]) and 1.2329 (Murray [2/8]). Stochastic confirms it, reversing upwards in the oversold area. However, the growth of MACD in the negative zone and the downward reversal of Bollinger Bands reflect the development of the downward trend to the level of 1.2085 (Murray [–2/8]).
Resistance levels: 1.2207, 1.2268, 1.2329.
Support levels: 1.2146, 1.2085.

Trading tips

Long positions can be opened above the level of 1.2207 with the targets at 1.2268, 1.2329 and stop loss around 1.2170.
Short positions can be opened after the price is set below the level of 1.2146 with the target at 1.2085 and stop loss near the level of 1.2180.

LiteForex analitics. Brent Crude Oil: general analysis

Current trend

Last week, oil prices were trading within the range of 74.21–72.65 (Murray [7/8]–[5/8]).
US Administration is giving controversial signals. At the end of the last week, in his Twitter, Donald Trump claimed, that the US would not accept artificially overpriced oil, which has led to the correction. However, this week American President claimed that he was intended to terminate the nuclear deal with Iran and imply new sanction against the third largest OPEC exporter. The execution of the plans will deprive the oil market of a great share of supply in a short term, which will support the prices. Iran is already having problems with sales. Companies would not make Iranian oil and petroleum products supply contracts, valid later than May, 12. The date is the deadline for the USA to make decisions on the new sanctions.
Macroeconomic background is negative. According to API, US oil resources grew by 1.099 million barrel this week, according to EIA – by 2.170 million barrel. As the prices consolidated above the level of 70 USD per barrel, US shale oil producers are increasing the production. Today, Baker Hughes Rig Count will be published. Last week the number was 820 units.

Support and resistance

Technical indicators do not give a clear signal. Stochastic is pointed downwards. MACD histogram is growing in the positive zone, Bollinger Bands are directed horizontally. The price is expected to move within the sideways channel.
Support levels: 73.43, 72.65, 71.87.
Resistance levels: 74.21, 75.00, 75.78.

Trading tips

Short positions can be opened below the level of 73.43 with the targets at 72.65, 72.00 and stop loss 73.70.
Long positions can be opened at the level of 73.70 with the targets at 74.21, 75.00 and stop loss near the level of 73.40.

LiteForex analitics. GBP/USD: general review

Current trend

The British currency is under pressure of negative data on GDP in the UK in Q1. In quarterly terms, the indicator decreased from 0.4% to 0.1%, and in the annual one - from 1.4% to 1.2%. Thus, the negative data for GDP was added to the latest negative data on industrial production, the growth of wages, inflation and retail sales, and now investors see fewer chances of raising the interest rate by the Bank of England at the next May meeting.
Additional pressure on the Pound was caused by changes in the UK government. On Monday, Sajid Javid was appointed as the new Home Secretary, who is, unlike his predecessor Amber Rudd, a Eurosceptic supporting country’s departure from the European Union. His appointment shifts the balance in Theresa May’s cabinet towards Brexit supporters, which could complicate and protract the negotiations.

Support and resistance

At present, the price remains in the region of 1.3720 and has the potential to fall further, especially if data on the Markit Manufacturing PMI for April, which is due on Tuesday, comes out weak (the index is expected to decline from 55.1 to 54.8 points). In this case, the price could reach the levels of 1.3549 (Murray [-1/8]) and 1.3427 (Murray [-2/8]). A breakout of the level of 1.3793 (Murray [1/8]) could lead to a growth towards the levels of 1.3916 (Murray [2/8]) and 1.4038 (Murray [3/8], middle MA of the Bollinger Bands).
Support levels: 1.3671, 1.3549, 1.3427.
Resistance levels: 1.3793, 1.3916, 1.4038.

Trading tips

Short positions can be opened below the level of 1.3671 with targets at 1.3549, 1.3427 and stop-loss at 1.3710. Validity – 5-7 days.
Long positions can be opened above the level of 1.3793 with targets at 1.3916, 1.4038 and stop-loss at 1.3750. Validity – 5-7 days.

LiteForex analitics. Brent Crude Oil: general review

Current trend

Oil quotes show mixed dynamics.
After growing at the beginning of the week related to Iran's accusations of secretly developing nuclear weapons, they drastically corrected to 72.20 mark. On Wednesday, the instrument was under pressure from the EIA weekly report on US oil reserves. According to the release, the stock of crude oil increased by 6.218 million barrels, significantly exceeding forecasts. Gasoline stocks also rose by 1.171 million barrels instead of the expected reduction. The volume of oil production in the US reached 10.619 million barrels per day.
At present, investors are focused on the development of the situation surrounding the Iran nuclear deal: Donald Trump intends to leave it and introduce new sanctions. Representatives of the Islamic Republic said that in this case the agreement would lose its meaning and enrichment of uranium in Iran could be resumed, which would undoubtedly lead to increased tensions in the region and support for oil prices. Trump defined May 12 as the deadline for the final decision on the nuclear deal.

Support and resistance

Currently, the price tends to the level of 71.87 (Murray [6/8], the midline of Bollinger Bands). In its breakdown, the decline may continue to 70.30 (Murray [5/8]) and 68.75 (Murray [4/8]) marks. However, Stochastic approaching the oversold zone suggests a possible beginning of growth to the levels of 75.00 (Murray [7/8]) and 76.56 (Murray [8/8]).
Support levels: 71.87, 70.30, 68.75.
Resistance levels: 73.43, 75.00, 75.56.

Trading tips

Short positions may be opened below the level of 71.87 with targets at 70.30, 68.75 and stop-loss at 72.40.
Long positions may be opened above the level of 73.43 with the target at 75.00 and stop-loss at 73.00.

LiteForex analitics. EUR/USD: general review

Current trend

This week, the pair dropped to the area of the lower border of the main trading range to the level of 1.1962 ([0/8]), where it is still traded.
The American currency is affected by the number of contradicting factors. On the one hand, it is pressured by the results of the Fed meeting. The interest rate remained unchanged at the previous level of 1.75% while in the statement investors didn’t see any hints on an acceleration of the pace of its increases. At the same time, it was noted that inflation is close to its target level of 2.0%, economic risks are balanced, and the current state of the economy assumes further rate hikes. On the other hand, the Dollar is supported by a start of negotiations between the US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Vice Premier of China Liu He in Beijing. Direct negotiations between officials of their status give investors room for optimism, though experts warn not to expect immediate results.
Today the market is waiting for the publication of April data on the American labor market. Unemployment rate is expected to decrease from 4.1% to 4.0%, and the number of non-farm jobs to increase from 103K to 192K.

Support and resistance

The technical picture is uncertain. Bollinger Bands diverge, confirming the downtrend, and MACD histogram grows in the negative zone, indicating that the decline may continue to 1.1900 and 1.1840 marks. However, one cannot exclude an upward correction to 1.2085 and 1.2146 marks.
Support levels: 1.1962, 1.1900, 1.1840.
Resistance levels: 1.2023, 1.2085, 1.2146.

Trading tips

Short positions may be opened from 1.1950 mark with targets at 1.1900, 1.1840 and stop-loss at 1.2000.
Long positions may be opened from the level of 1.2023 with targets of 1.2085, 1.2146 and the stop-loss at 1.1980.

LiteForex analitics. EUR/USD: general review

Current trend

The pair continues to decline for the third consecutive week and today has reached its lowest level since December at 1.1870 mark.

EUR is crushed by weak data on GDP, inflation, and retail sales in the Eurozone. USD is supported by the expectation that the Fed will continue to raise the interest rate.
Today, the market is focused on the statements of American politicians. At the conference in Switzerland, the Fed head Jerome Powell noted that the market has already received a signal about intention to increase rates and should no longer be surprised at these actions. In the evening, President Trump should announce his decision on the Iranian nuclear deal. Experts believe that the US will withdraw from the agreement. Then, new sanctions may be introduced or the parties may try to conclude a new treaty. Other participants - France, Britain, and Iran - are strongly opposed to unilateral actions by the US, and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that the termination of the agreement would be a historical mistake. Breaking the deal could put pressure on USD and substantially support oil prices.

Support and resistance

The instrument tends to 1.1840 mark (Murray [-2/8]) and, in its breakdown, can continue the decline to 1.1780 (Murray [1/8], H4) and 1.1715 (Murray [8/8], W1) marks.

The investors are focused on Iran. After America left Iranian nuclear agreement, the traders expect Trump administration to imply sanctions, which can significantly restrict Iranian oil export. Now it is the third OPEC country, which shares 4% of the world oil market and exports 3.8 million barrel per day. US sanctions can make a shortage in the market, which can be used by competitors. Saudi Arabia can increase the production: its representatives have stated they would cooperate with “black gold” consumers to minimize the effect form Iranian oil supply decrease. Iranian quota within OPEC+ Agreement can be redistributed. The Organization plans to discuss it at the end of the month. US shale oil producers can increase its part, too.

LiteForex analitics. WTI Crude Oil: general analysis

Current trend

Today the oil price is trying to grow from the level of 70.31, where it was corrected to on Friday after the Energy Minister of UAE Suhail Al Mazrouei noted that OPEC represented by UAE, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia can balance the restriction of Iranian “black gold” supply. The decrease of supply in the market after the implementation of US sanctions against Iran is now estimated within the range of 0.5–1.5 million barrel per day.
The market ignored Baker Hughes Rig Count release, which increased from 834 to 844 units last week. As the prices have significantly increased, the strengthening of American shale oil production is not surprising.
Iranian authorities are trying to keep its share of oil market: Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has visited China. The experts suppose the parties to negotiate upon the supplies after US sanctions implementation.

Support and resistance

The price strengthens at the level of 70.31 (Murray [+1/8]). Stochastic, reversing in the oversold area, restricts the growth. The consolidation of the price below the level of 70.31 will let it fall to the levels of 69.53 (Murray [5/8], H4) and 68.75 (Murray [8/8], the middle line of Bollinger Bands). If the price cannot consolidate above the level of 71.10 (Murray [7/8], H4) the growth to the levels of 71.87 (Murray [+2/8]) and 72.65 (Murray [+1/8], H4) is possible.
Resistance levels: 71.10, 71.87, 72.65.
Support levels: 70.30, 69.53, 68.75.

Trading tips

Short positions can be opened below the level of 70.31 with the targets at 69.53, 68.75 and stop loss near the level of 70.60.
Long positions can be opened above the level of 71.10 with the targets at 71.87, 72.65 and stop loss 70.80.

LiteForex analitics. GBP/USD: general analysis

Current trend

Since the beginning of the month, the pair trades within the sideways channel 1.3610–1.3458 (Murray [6/8]–[1/8], Н4).
UK employment statistic was mixed. The unemployment level stays record low –4.2%.

On the other hand, the growth rate of Average Earnings Excluding Bonus decreased from 2.8% to 2.6%.
British economy is slowing after significant growth, which the Deputy Governor of the BoE Ben Broadbent confirmed in his interview for Daily Telegraph and due to the unclear situation about Brexit. Until the Summer EU Summit, UK must publish its plan of the relations with EU development during the transitional period. However, the British governing parties are not able to agree. On Tuesday, the Scottish Parliament rejected London Brexit low, as it restricts the rights of local parliamentarians.

Support and resistance

The price is tending to the lower border of the channel, but the fall is possible after consolidation below the level of 1.3427 (Murray [–2/8]), and the “bearish” targets will be at 1.3310 (the lower border of Bollinger Bands) and 1.3200. After the breakout of 1.3550 (Murray [–1/8]) the correction to the level of 1.3671 (Murray [0/8], the middle line of Bollinger Bands) is possible. The indicators reflect the fall. Bollinger Bands and Stochastic are pointed downwards. MACD histogram is stable in the negative zone.
Resistance levels: 1.3550, 1.3671.
Support levels: 1.3427, 1.3310, 1.3200.

Trading tips

LiteForex analitics. WTI Crude Oil: Murrey analysis

This week, the price of WTI Crude oil continued to grow and is now testing the 71.87 mark ([6/8]). Its breakout will give the prospect of further growth to the levels of 73.43 ([7/8]) and 75.00 ([8/8]). Technical indicators generally confirm the development of an uptrend: Bollinger Bands are directed upwards, and MACD histogram grows in the positive zone; Stochastic is directed downwards, but it makes a reversal attempt.
In the price fails to consolidate above 71.87, correction to the mid-range of Bollinger Bands (69.53) or to the mid-range of the Murray trade range (68.75 [4/8]) is possible. But so far this scenario seems less probable.
Support and resistance
Support levels: 70.31 ([5/8]), 69.53 ([1/8], H4), 68.75 ([4/8]).
Resistance levels: 71.87 ([6/8]), 73.43 ([7/8]), 75.00 ([8/8]).

Trading tips

Long positions may be opened above the 71.87 mark with targets at 73.43, 75.00 and the stop-loss at 71.20.
Short positions may be opened from the level of 71.00 with targets at 70.31, 69.53 and the stop-loss at 71.50.
Implementation time: 5-7 days.

LiteForex analitics. GBP/USD: general review

Current trend

Last week, the pair was declining, and by now the price has fallen below the level of 1.3427 (Murray [2/8]).
The current week will be full of important statistics that will allow investors to assess whether the British economy is able to begin recovery or will it continue the slowdown, which was recently talked about by Ben Broadbent, the deputy head of the Bank of England. On Wednesday, April data on inflation will be published. It is expected that the consumer price index will continue to decline and will amount to 2.3%. If the forecast is confirmed, the regulator can further delay the decision to raise the interest rate; however, taking into account the recent growth in wages, the purchasing power of British households will increase. Retail sales index in February promises to grow from 1.1% to 1.4%, and GDP - from 1.2% to 1.3%.
Positive economic statistics may be offset by the Brexit negotiations. So far, the issues of the Irish border and membership in the customs union remain open and do not have a solution even within the ruling cabinet.

Support and resistance

Currently, the instrument is below 1.3427 mark and may continue to decline to levels of 1.3300 (Murray [1/8], the lower border of Bollinger Bands) and 1.3183 (Murray [0/8]). If the price consolidates above 1.3550 mark, growth may continue to 1.3680.
Technical indicators show decline: Bollinger Bands and Stochastic are pointing down, MACD histogram is stable in the negative zone.
Support levels: 1.3305, 1.3183.
Resistance levels: 1.3427, 1.3550, 1.3671.

Trading tips

Short positions may be opened from the level of 1.3385 with targets at 1.3305, 1.3183 and stop-loss at 1.3430.
Long positions may be opened above 1.3550 mark with the target at 1.3671 and stop-loss at 1.3510.
Implementation time: 5-7 days.
