LiteForex analitics. AUD/USD: correction may be long

Current trend

In June, the Australian dollar against the US one continues to recover after a significant fall in April and early May. The pair returned to the medium-term downward channel and has now reached the upper border of this trend.
The main catalyst for this movement was the fall in the attractiveness of the overbought American currency: investors fix short positions, waiting for a longer upward correction. Moreover, strong economic growth data for Q1 were released in Australia, which gave serious support to AUD.
This week, there will be no key releases for the US dollar, so one should not expect increased interest in the currency.

Support and resistance

The pair stopped at a strong resistance level of 0.7670, which is the upper border of the descending channel, which makes it difficult to pass this mark. On the other hand, a strong fundamental background in Australia and a decline in demand for USD can provide momentum for further growth with the possibility of the upward correction to the levels of 0.7700, 0.7800. From them, the instrument can go down to local minima: one should not expect a fall from the current level, but the overall trend remains descending.
Technical indicators on W1 chart confirm the decline forecast in the medium term: MACD indicates the preservation of the high volume of short positions, and Bollinger Bands are pointing downwards.
Support levels: 0.7600, 0.7560, 0.7530, 0.7505, 0.7480, 0.7450, 0.7410.
Resistance levels: 0.7650, 0.7670, 0.7700, 0.7735, 0.7770, 0.7800.

Trading tips

Short positions may be opened from levels of 0.7700, 0.7770, 0.7800 with targets at 0.7450, 0.7410 and stop-loss at 0.7870.

LiteForex analitics. GBP/USD: general analysis

Current trend

The pair is influenced by contradictory factors. On the one hand, positive British Service, Manufacturing, and Construction PMI inspired the investors and gave hopes for reduction of BoE monetary stimulus. On the other hand, Brexit situation is incurring significant risks for the British economy. In general, business is preparing for hard times. Representatives of major European and British companies have warned Prime Minister Theresa May about a possible reduction in investment, which would cause a reduction in jobs number.
The lack of a compromise upon Brexit in the British government worsens the situation. Recently, Theresa May proposed to leave the UK in the EU United Customs zone temporary, which would let avoid the physical borders in Ireland. However, this plan has raised objections from a number of ministers, including David Davis, Boris Johnson, and Liam Fox, who insisted that the UK's stay within the customs union should be limited to a specific unmovable deadline.

Support and resistance

Technically, the pair has been growing for two weeks but was corrected to the midline of Bollinger bands. In the case of a breakdown below the level of 1.3366 (Murray [6/8]), a further decline to the level of 1.3300 (Murray [4/8]) is possible, which is confirmed by indicators: Stochastic reversed downwards, MACD decreases in the positive zone. The key "bullish" level is 1.3427 (Murray [0/8]). In case of the breakout, the price can grow to 1.3488 (Murray [+2/8]), 1.3540.
Resistance levels: 1.3427, 1.3488.
Support levels: 1.3366, 1.3300.

Trading tips

Short positions can be opened below the level of 1.3366 with the target at 1.3300 and a stop loss around 1.3400.
Long positions can be opened above the level of 1.3427 with the targets at 1.3488, 1.3540 and stop loss 1.3390.
Implementation period: 3–5 days.

LiteForex analitics. USD/JPY: general review

Current trend

This week, the pair rose to around 110.65 amid expectations of an interest rate increase by the Fed, the decision on which will be made today.
It is expected that the regulator will raise the rate from 1.75% to 2.00%. Nevertheless, the main intrigue is how much more increases should be expected this year – one or two. Jerome Powell, the Fed's Head, can answer this question at today's press-conference. In conditions of steady growth of inflation, the basic level of which exceeds the target level of 2.0% for three months in a row, the aggressive increase in rates looks logical. However, a trade conflict with the EU and Canada can make the FOMC officials be more cautious.
On Thursday, April data on industrial production in Japan will be published. It is expected that, on an annual basis, the figure will increase from 2.5% to 3.1%, which is unlikely to significantly strengthen the yen, as investors' attention will continue to focus on the results of the meeting of the American regulator.

Support and resistance

Currently, the price approaches the level of 110.93 (Murray [7/8]) and after its breakout can go to the level of 111.40 (the May high area). A breakdown of the midline of Bollinger Bands around 109.85 will give a prospect of a decline to 109.37 (Murray [6/8]) and 108.75. Technical indicators show growth. Stochastic is directed upwards, and MACD histogram is growing in the positive zone.
Support levels: 109.85, 109.37, 108.75.
Resistance levels: 110.93, 111.40.

Trading tips

Long positions may be opened from the current level with targets at 110.93, 111.40 and stop-loss at 110.20.
Short positions may be opened below the level of 109.85 with targets at 109.37, 108.75 and stop-loss at 110.10.

LiteForex analitics. GBP/USD: general review

Current trend

Yesterday, the pair dropped against the background of the results of the Fed's meeting. The key interest rate was raised from 1.75% to 2.00%, and the majority of the Committee members expect two more increases this year.
Today, GBP won back its lost positions, which was facilitated by strong May data on the UK retail sales. YoY the indicator grew from 1.4% to 3.9%. Increased volumes of retail sales were promoted by warm weather and Prince Harry's wedding. These strong data did not clarify the British economy state. After March decline, the indicator has been growing for the second month in a row. But this growth is caused by temporary factors and in June the decline may resume. The Bank of England may need new data to make a decision on the interest rate. Many investors expect its increase in August, especially after the deputy head of the British regulator, Dave Ramsden, spoke last week in favor of rising lending costs.

Support and resistance

Currently, the price is testing the 1.3427 level (Murrey [+1/8]) and, if it consolidates above it, the price can continue to rise to the levels of 1.3540 and 1.3671 (Murrey [0/8]). The key level for the "bears" seems to be 1.3365 (midline of Bollinger Bands). If it is broken down, the price may drop to 1.3300 and 1.3220 (the bottom line of Bollinger Bands). Technical indicators generally indicate growth. MACD histogram is reducing in the negative zone, and Stochastic is reversing upwards.
Support levels: 1.3365, 1.3300, 1.3220.
Resistance levels: 1.3427, 1.3540, 1.3671.

Trading tips

Buy positions may be opened above 1.3427 with targets at 1.3540, 1.3671 and stop-loss at 1.3380.
Sell positions may be opened below 1.3365 with targets at 1.3300, 1.3220 and stop-loss at 1.3400.
Implementation period: 5-7 days.

LiteForex analitics. EUR/USD: the euro is recovering

Current trend

EUR grew against USD on Friday, having regained some of its losses. Active sales of EUR were due to the market reaction to the ECB meeting outcome.
The member of the board of ECB governors and the head of the Bank of Austria Ewald Novotny tried to calm down the investors. He noted that inflation is very close to the target level of 2.0% and the ECB is embarking on a process of monetary policy normalizing. However, their actions will not be sharp and will take a significant amount of time.
Published on Friday, the final May inflation data did not change. Consumer Price index remained unchanged at the level of 1.9%. On the one hand, high inflation indicators will push the European regulator to a gradual cancellation of monetary incentives. On the other hand, according to Mario Draghi, the ECB does not take into account the risks associated with the introduction of the US trade duties on metals produced in the EU. If the situation worsens, monetary policy tightening may be postponed.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate flat dynamics. The price range widens but not enough for "bearish" trend to develop. MACD declines keeping a sell signal (located below the signal line). Stochastic declines locating close to its minimum levels, indicating oversold EUR.
Technical indicators don’t contradict "bearish" trend development but corrective growth is possible.
Resistance levels: 1.1625, 1.1659, 1.1688, 1.1711.
Support levels: 1.1572, 1.1541, 1.1508.

Trading tips

To open long positions, one can rely on the rebound from the support level of 1.1572, with the breakout of 1.1600. Take-profit — 1.1688, 1.1711. Stop-loss — 1.1550.
A breakdown of 1.1572 may be a signal to sell with targets at 1.1508, 1.1500 or 1.1475. Stop-loss — 1.1625.
Implementation period: 2-3 days.

LiteForex analitics. USD/JPY: the dollar is dropping

Current trend

USD showed a stable decrease against JPY on Tuesday, updating the local low of June 11. The growth of the Japanese currency is fueled by the growing US-China trade conflict.
At the same time, the dollar is relatively stable, as it receives support from the Fed's actions aimed at gradual tightening of monetary policy.
Today, the pair is also trading in an upward direction. Traders focus on the published minutes of the April meeting of the Bank of Japan, which in many respects turned out to be neutral. According to the protocol, only one official spoke in favor of additional stimulation measures, while the overwhelming majority of board members advocated the preservation of the monetary policy vector.

Support and resistance

On the D1 chart, Bollinger Bands are gradually reversing horizontally. The price range is narrowing, reflecting ambiguous nature of trading in recent days. MACD reversed downwards having formed a sell signal (located under the signal line). Stochastic is going down and is located in the middle of its area.
Technical indicators do not contradict the further development of the "bearish" trend in the short and/or ultra-short term. The existing short positions should be left open for some time.
Resistance levels: 110.25, 110.60, 111.00, 111.38.
Support levels: 109.90, 109.53, 109.17, 108.83.

Trading tips

To open long positions one can rely on the breakout of the level of 110.25 if signals for the uptrend development in the short and/or ultra-short term emerge. Take-profit — 111.00. Stop-loss — 109.80.
The rebound from the level of 110.25 as from resistance, with the subsequent breakdown of 109.90, can become a signal to new sales with target at 109.17, 109.00 or 108.83. Stop-loss — 110.40.
Implementation period: 2-3 days.

LiteForex analitics. USD/JPY: the dollar is growing

LiteForex analitics. EUR/USD: general analysis

Current trend

At the beginning of the week, the pair is declining, and it is now trading around 1.1630. Today’s EU Markit Manufacturing PMI slightly decreased from 55.0 to 54.9 points.
EUR is under pressure of German government crisis. Leader of the Christian Social Union (CSU) Horst Seehofer intends to leave the post of Internal Minister in Merkel’s government, as he does not agree with the Chancellor's migration policy. CSU members insist on tightening the fight against illegal migration, up to the ban on new migrants entering the country.
On Monday, negotiations between the leaders of the CSU and CDU (Christian Democratic Union, Angela Merkel) are planned to find a compromise in the migration issue. The failure can lead to the disintegration of the German ruling coalition, which will inevitably weaken EUR.

Support and resistance

The price is testing the midline of Bollinger bands 1.1670 (D1) and cannot consolidate above it. In case of German government crisis worsening, the instrument can fall to the levels of 1.1540 (May’s lows area) and 1.1474 (Murrey [–2/8]). The breakout of the midline of Bollinger bands and the level of 1.1718 (Murrey [0/8]) will let the price grow to the level of 1.1840 (Murrey [1/8], the upper border of Bollinger bands). Technical indicators confirm the possibility of growth. Stochastic turns up, MACD histogram decreases in the negative zone.
Resistance levels: 1.1718, 1.1840.
Support levels: 1.1540, 1.1474.

Trading tips

Long positions can be opened above the level of 1.1718 with the target at 1.1840 and stop loss 1.1670.
Short positions can be opened at the level of 1.1600 with the targets at 1.1540, 1.1474 and stop loss around 1.1640.
Implementation period: 3–5 days.

LiteForex analitics. WTI Crude Oil: general analysis

Current trend

On Tuesday, oil prices grew and reached 73.35, but the market is influenced by ambiguous factors.
The risks of Libya oil supply interruptions support the instrument. Yesterday, the representatives of the Libyan National Oil Corp announced that the shipment from a number of ports is unavailable, so the reduction of production in the country by 850,000 barrels per day is expected. On the other hand, the price is under pressure of the United Arab Emirates government's statement that the country has the opportunity to significantly increase production to prevent a supply shortage in the market. Previously, Saudi Arabia said the same thing. Thus, the expected by the end of the year, Iran "black gold" export decrease will be balanced by other OPEC members’ production growth.
In the evening, investors are waiting for API Crude Oil Stocks change release. If the index falls, it will affect the price negatively.

Support and resistance

The key "bullish" level is 73.43 (Murrey [7/8]). After the breakout, the price can grow to 75.00 (Murrey [8/8]). Otherwise, a downward correction to 71.87 (the lower line of Bollinger bands, Murrey [6/8]) and 70.31 (Murrey [5/8]) is expected.
Technical indicators do not exclude the fall possibility. Bollinger bands are directed upwards. Stochastic entered the overbought zone and can reverse. MACD decreases in the positive zone.
Resistance levels: 73.43, 75.00.
Support levels: 71.87, 70.31.

Trading tips

Short positions can be opened at the level 72.80 with the targets at 71.87, 70.31 and stop loss 73.40.
Long positions can be opened when the price is set above the level of 73.43 with the target at 75.00 and stop loss around 72.80.
Implementation period: 3–5 days.

LiteForex analitics. USD/JPY: general review

Current trend

This week, the pair is corrected downwards due to weak economic statistics from Japan.
Tankan Large Manufacturing Index in Q2 2018 dropped from 24 to 21 points and Manufacturing PMI in June dropped from 53.1 to 53.0 points.
Also, JPY is under pressure of the decision of the People's Bank of China not to use the yuan as a weapon in the trade war with the US. This was announced by the head of the Chinese regulator Yi Gang. In general, the potential to strengthen JPY as a safe haven asset remains, especially if the US-China trade conflict continues to worsen.
In addition, on Wednesday, the Japanese Bank of Japan board member Yutaka Harada addressed the leaders of Japanese business. The official noted that the current level of unemployment in the country (2.2%) is too high and to achieve inflation level of 2.0% it is necessary to further reduce it. Therefore, the Bank of Japan intends to continue soft monetary policy.

Support and resistance

The price has fallen to the midline of Bollinger Bands to 110.15. The breakdown of this level will give the prospect of further decline to 109.37 (Murrey [4/8], the bottom line of Bollinger Bands) and 108.59 (Murrey [5/8]). This possibility is indicated by Stochastic which has left the overbought area. The key to the "bulls" is 110.93 (Murrey [6/8]), which was tested unsuccessfully in May. Consolidation of the price above it will cause an increase to 111.72 (Murrey [7/8]) and 112.50 (Murrey [8/8]).
Support levels: 110.15, 109.37, 108.59.
Resistance levels: 110.93, 111.72, 112.50.

Trading tips

Buy positions can be opened above 110.93 with targets at 111.72, 112.50 and stop-loss at 110.50.
Sell positions may be opened below 110.15 with targets at 109.37, 108.59 and stop-loss at 110.40.

LiteForex analitics. GBP/USD: general review

Current trend

GBP continues strengthening due to positive economic statistics and is testing the level of 1.3244 (Murrey [5/8]).
Wednesday's data on the Services PMI in the UK proved to be strong and strengthened GBP. In June, the indicator reached the 8-month maximum at 55.1 points. According to experts, this could lead to GDP growth by 0.4% in the UK in Q2 2018 and push the Bank of England to increase the interest rate at an August meeting. However, for such a decision, inflation in the country should be above the target level of 2.0%. Currently, this indicator continues to decline and has already reached the level of 2.4%.
The situation with Brexit remains controversial. Theresa May's Cabinet developed a new plan for customs cooperation with the EU. According to it, after leaving the EU, Britain will be able to set its own tariffs on imported goods while transit products going to the EU through the UK territory will have to be taxed by the EU duties.

Support and resistance

The price is testing the level of 1.3244 (Murrey [5/8]), the breakdown of which will give the prospect of growth to 1.3305 (Murrey [6/8]), 1.3366 (Murrey [7/8]). The key level for the "bears" seems to be 1.3183 (Murrey [2/8]), midline of Bollinger Bands). If it is broken down, the price may decline to 1.3122 (Murrey [3/8]) and 1.3061 (Murrey [2/8]). Technical indicators don’t provide a clear signal. Stochastic has reversed downwards, and MACD histogram is reducing in the positive zone.
Support levels: 1.3366, 1.3305.
Resistance levels: 1.3061, 1.3122, 1.3183.

Trading tips

Buy positions may be opened from 1.3260 with targets at 1.3305, 1.3366 and stop-loss at 1.3220. Sell positions may be opened from 1.3183 with targets at 1.3122, 1.3061 and stop-loss at 1.3220.

LiteForex analitics. EUR/USD: general review

Current trend

Today, US trade duties on goods produced in China came into effect, totaling USD 34 billion. According to experts, the impact of tariffs on the Chinese economy will be noticeable in 3-6 months and may lead to a 0.2% decrease in its growth. Now investors are waiting for the official reaction of the Chinese authorities, in particular, the press conference of the Premier of the State Council of the PRC, Li Keqiang. Beijing's response may be symmetric, but the US administration warned that if the conflict escalated, it could introduce additional duties on Chinese goods totaling USD 500 billion.
In the evening, investors expect the publication of data on Nonfarm payrolls in the US. The indicator can decline from 223K to 195K. Thursday's statistics on ADP Employment Change also proved to be weak: in June the indicator dropped from 189K to 177K.
Support and resistance


The price is testing 1.1718 (Murrey [0/8]) and in case of consolidation above it the price can reach the levels of 1.1840 (Murrey [1/8]) and 1.1962 (Murrey [2/8]). A breakdown of the midline of Bollinger Bands at 1.1650 will give the prospect of a decline to the level of 1.1530 (the bottom line of Bollinger Bands). Indicators show growth.

Support levels: 1.1650, 1.1530.

LiteForex analitics. USD/JPY: general review

Current trend

Today, the pair is trading near the midline of Bollinger Bands (D1) at 110.50.
Today, at the meeting of the heads of the Bank of Japan regional branches, Haruhiko Kuroda spoke. In general, the head of the Japanese regulator confirmed his opinion that a soft monetary policy should be continued until inflation stabilizes at 2.0%.
This week, investors will focus on the development of the US-China trade conflict and the publication of June inflation data in the US. The trade war leads to instability in the world economy and can force the Fed to lower the hike of interest rate increase. The index of inflation promises to remain above the target level of 2.0% for the fourth consecutive month, which indicates the restoration of the American economy and the need to normalize monetary policy.

Support and resistance

Now the price is at the middle line of the Bollinger bands at 110.50. The key for the "bears" is 110.15 (Murrey [5/8]). If it is broken down, a further decrease to 109.37 (Murrey [4/8]) and 108.59 (Murrey [3/8]) is likely. Long positions will become relevant if the price consolidates above the level of 110.93 (Murrey [6/8]), which was tested unsuccessfully this year. In this case, the target of the "bulls" will be 111.72 (Murrey [7/8]) and 112.50 (Murrey [8/8]).
Technical indicators don't provide a clear signal. MACD histogram is stable in the positive zone. Stochastic is directed downwards.
Support levels: 110.15, 109.37, 108.59.
Resistance levels: 110.93, 111.72, 112.50.

Trading tips

Buy positions can be opened above 110.93 with target at 111.72, 112.50 and stop-loss at 110.50.
Sell positions may be opened from 110.15 with targets at 109.37, 108.59 and stop-loss at 110.60.
Implementation period: 3-5 days.

LiteForex analitics. EUR/USD: general analysis

Current trend

Yesterday the pair moved in different directions: poor June US employment market data affected it negatively, but as the tough rhetoric did not develop after the US-China trade taxes implementation, USD did not fall further.
On Monday, ECB officials commented on the current economic situation. The head of the regulator, Mario Draghi in the European Parliament noted the growing role of protectionism in the world trade and expressed hope for EU consumer prices growth. In Zurich, ECB board member Ewald Nowotny expressed his fear that the US-China trade war could turn into a currency one. Earlier, the head of the People's Bank of China Yi Gang claimed the intention not to use the Yuan as a weapon in trade disputes, but the market was not satisfied.
Today, the traders focus on EU and German ZEW Survey – Economic Sentiment release, which is expected to decline: from –16.1 to –18.0 points in Germany and from 12.6 to –13.2 points in EU. The growth of pessimism is due to EU, China and the USA trade conflict.

Support and resistance

The price grew above 1.1718 (Murrey [0/8]) and can move to 1.1840 (Murrey [1/8]), tested in May. A breakdown of the middle line of Bollinger bands around 1.1650 will let the price return to 1.1540. Indicators’ readings are ambiguous. Stochastic reverses in the overbought zone. MACD histogram is ready to enter the positive zone and form a buy signal.
Resistance levels: 1.1840, 1.1962.
Support levels: 1.1718, 1.1650, 1.1540.

Trading tips

LiteForex analitics. GBP/USD: general review


Current trend

At the beginning of the week, the pair sharply corrected to the area of 1.3183 (Murrey [4/8]), as a result of permutations in the British government.
Brexit Secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson left office. They protested against the new plan by Theresa May, according to which a free trade area with uniform rules for industrial and agricultural goods, subject to European trade rules, should be established between the EU and Great Britain.
Currently, the pair has ambiguous dynamics. GBP is under pressure by weak statistics on the volume of industrial production. The value of the indicator YoY grew by 0.8% with the forecast of 1.9%, and MoM it dropped by 0.4%.
USD is under pressure after the US administration announced plans to introduce a new 10% duty on Chinese goods totaling USD 200B, which may enter into force on August 30. The Chinese authorities called this step of the US totally unacceptable and threatened with retaliatory measures and proceedings within the WTO.

Resistance levels: 1.3305, 1.3366.

LiteForex analitics. USD/JPY: general analysis


Current trend

This week the pair was growing, and by now it has reached the level of 112.40. The investors are focused on the US-China trade war. The government of Japan, represented by Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga, has already expressed concern about its escalation. China and the United States are the largest trading partners of the country, and last year the export of Japanese goods in these directions amounted to $300 billion. The decline in the economic growth of the US and China could affect Japanese exporters negatively. According to experts, the consequences of the trade war are likely to come in the next year, and the country's economy may lose 0.6%.
On Thursday, investors are waiting for the publication of June inflation data in the US. It is expected that the Consumer Price Index (YoY) may reach 2.9%, and Consumer Price Index Ex Food & Energy (YoY) will reach 2.3%. Thus, the basic indicator of inflation may remain above the target level (2.0%) for the fourth consecutive month. However, despite good economic results, FOMC members can reduce the number of rate increases this year, primarily due to the deepening trade US-China crisis.

Support and resistance

The price is now reaching the level of 112.50 (the upper border of the Murrey range [8/8]), where a reversal and correction to the levels 111.72 (Murrey [7/8]) and 110.93 (Murrey [6/8]) are possible. The price breaking the upper line of Bollinger bands and Stochastic entering the overbought zone confirm the forecast. The further growth is possible only if the price consolidates above the level of 112.50, in this case, the “bullish” targets will be 114.06 (Murrey [+2/8]).
Resistance levels: 112.50, 114.06.
Support levels: 111.72, 110.93, 110.15.

Trading tips

Short positions can be opened at the level of 112.50 with the targets at 111.72, 110.93 and stop loss at the level of 112.80.
Long positions can be opened from the level of 113.00 with the target at 114.06 and stop loss around 112.70.
Implementation period: 3–5 days.

LiteForex analitics. EUR/USD: general review

Current trend

Last week, the pair was trading near the level of 1.1718 (Murrey [0/8]), but could not get away from it significantly.
This week, investors are waiting for a number of key events, mainly, for the Fed's head Jerome Powell Congress speeches, which will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday. Probably, they will be about monetary policy in the face of the complications of trade relations between China, the EU, and the USA. On the one hand, the inflation reaching the target level and a stable labor market push the regulator to raise rates. On the other hand, trade wars make the future of the American economy vague. Recently, representatives of the FRB of St. Louis noted that the reciprocal trade duties could lead to job losses and the shutdown of production in several US states. In these circumstances, the Fed may well begin to be cautious in monetary policy.

Support and resistance

Now, the instrument is testing the level of 1.1718 and, after consolidating above it, can continue rising to 1.1840 (Murrey [1/8]). This is confirmed by Stochastic, which is reversing upwards, as well as negative forecasts of the retail sales indicator, which will be published today (it is expected to decrease from 0.8% to 0.5%). The level of 1.1650 (the center line of Bollinger Bands) is seen as key for the "bears". Its breakdown will give a prospect of a return to 1.1530 (the bottom line of Bollinger Bands).
Support levels: 1.1650, 1.1530.
Resistance levels: 1.1718, 1.1840, 1.1962.

Trading tips

Buy positions may be opened from the level of 1.1718 with the target at 1.1840 and stop loss at 1.1680.
Sell positions may be opened below 1.1650 with the target at 1.1530 and stop loss at 1.1690.
Implementation time: 3-5 days.

LiteForex analitics. Brent Crude Oil: general analysis

Current trend

After Monday’s drop, oil prices stabilized. Brent is trading around 72.00–71.50. The decline can resume soon, as the external background remains negative. Investors are concerned about the US-China trade conflict escalation, which can lead to a decrease in the growth of the two leading world economies and undermine the demand for energy. At the same time, the supply deficit due to US anti-Iran sanctions, which could support prices, is balanced by increased production in a number of OPEC countries and their allies. In the first half of July, Russia increased it to 11.22 million barrels per day. By the end of this month, Iraq volumes can grow to 4.7 million barrels per day against the current 4.5 million barrels per day.
Tuesday’s API Weekly Crude Oil Stock release increased unexpectedly: oil by 0.629 million barrels, and gasoline by 0.425 million barrels. In the evening, EIA Weekly Crude Oil Stock will be published, which is expected to reach 3.495 million barrels, but it is unlikely to support the prices significantly.

Support and resistance

The price fell below the level of 71.87 (Murrey [2/8]) and will continue to decline to the levels of 70.31 (Murrey [1/8]) and 68.75 (Murrey [0/8]), which is confirmed by the indicators. Bollinger bands diverge, MACD entered the negative zone. Stochastic entered the oversold zone: correction to 73.43 (Murrey [3/8]) is possible only after the price is set above 71.87.
Resistance levels: 71.87, 73.43, 75.00.
Support levels: 70.31, 68.75.

Trading tips

Short positions can be opened from the current level with the targets at 70.31, 68.75 and stop loss 71.90.

LiteForex analitics. XAG/USD: silver prices are growing

Current trend

Prices for silver increased significantly on Wednesday, noting a new local high since July 17. USD fell against a background of falling yields on Treasury bonds and weak macroeconomic statistics on the new home sales dynamics in the US.

Yesterday's preliminary meeting between US President Donald Trump and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker did not bring anything new to the market. Following the meeting, Trump said that he hoped for a positive outcome of the negotiations on the trade deal, and praised Juncker for a rather tough position.

It should be noted that the consequences of trade wars begin to affect their participants. On Tuesday, the PRC government announced a program to stimulate domestic demand and its own economy to prevent its recession due to new US import duties. At the same time, it became known that Washington would allocate USD 12B to help farmers affected by Chinese retaliatory duties.

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate a stable decrease. The price range is narrowing, reflecting the "bullish" nature of trading in recent days. MACD indicator is growing keeping a buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic keeps on growing, but is rapidly approaching its highs, which indicates the risks associated with the overbought instrument.

Current indicators do not contradict the further development of the "bullish" trend in the short term.

Resistance levels: 15.60, 15.83, 16.00, 16.12.
Support levels: 15.46, 15.30, 15.09.

Trading tips

Implementation period: 2-3 days.

LiteForex analitics. GBP/USD: to new local lows

Current trend

GBP against USD is moving within a broad downwards channel, despite the July decline in volatility. The downward momentum significantly decreased due to a drop in investment interest in the overbought dollar. An additional catalyst for the pair's growth was weak data on key sectors of the US economy in the middle of last month. At the end of last trading week, the pair reached the upper border of the current downward trend at 1.3210 due to the British positive fundamental background, and dollar is now strengthening due to favorable data and the growth of demand before US key releases publications.

At the end of this week US data on the labor market will be published, as well as Fed’s and BoE interest rates decisions, so high volatility of the instrument is expected.

LiteForex analitics. USD/CAD: general review

Current trend

This week, CAD strengthened against USD due to the publication of strong data on GDP.

In May, Canada's GDP grew by 0.5%, which was the most significant figure for the last year. GDP growth is explained by good weather, which led to an increase in retail sales (by 2.0% in May) and an increase in oil prices in the first half of 2018.

At present, the Canadian economy is seriously dependent on the oil market, since the share of oil and gas production in the national GDP is more than 7% (the most significant figure since 1998). On Wednesday, after the publication of the EIA report, which recorded the growth of oil reserves in the US by 3.803M barrels to 408.74M barrels, CAD was under pressure, the pair began to grow and is currently trading at around 1.3025.

Support and resistance

Currently, the price is corrected upwards within the downtrend, and the possibility of further growth is confirmed by Stochastic, which is located at the oversold zone. However, one may speak about a serious increase in the price when it is fixed above 1.3061 (Murrey [3/8]). In this case, the next target of "bulls" will be 1.3183 (Murrey [4/8]). If the downtrend continues, the targets of the "bears" will be 1.2939 (Murrey [2/8]), 1.2817 (Murrey [1/8]) and 1.2695 (Murrey [0/8]).

Resistance levels: 1.3061, 1.3183.
Support levels: 1.2939, 1.2817, 1.2695.

Trading tips

Sell positions may be opened from the current level with targets at 1.2939, 1.2817, 1.2695 and stop loss at 1.1360.
Buy positions can be opened above 1.3061 with target at 1.3183 and stop loss at 1.3020.
Implementation period: 3-5 days.

LiteForex analitics. NZD/USD: growth of investment interest in USD

Current trend

NZD against USD cannot come out of the wide side channel. For more than a month the pair has been moving within the range of 0.6850-0.6715 due to a decrease in trading activity and an ambiguous fundamental background.

Last week, strong US GDP data was published, but the labor market subsided, and the Fed did not go on to tighten monetary policy and raise rates. Despite this, USD gained additional demand, and the pair fell to a local minimum of 0.6725, having passed more than 100 points in a few days. At the end of the week, some of the losses were played out but the downward momentum persisted.

At the moment, there are no important releases. At the end of the week RBNZ will publish a decision on the rates, and in the US there will be data on the labor market and major indices, special attention should be paid to inflation.

Support and resistance

The pair has slowed but remains in the long-term downward trend. It is possible that the approach to the lower border will be decisive: either the pair will break it down and go to new local lows, or continue to trade in narrowing consolidation. The consensus forecast indicates an increase in inflation in the US: this may give USD support in view of the increased likelihood of an increase in rates. However, the downward movement is more likely, which means that an increase in the volume of short positions at the current level or at the upper border of the side channel is expected.

Technical indicators confirm the fall outlook: on D1 chart and above, MACD is already indicating the growth of volume of short positions, and Bollinger Bands are still pointing down.

Support levels: 0.6725, 0.6710, 0.6690, 0.6650, 0.6610, 0.6575, 0.6500.
Resistance levels: 0.6700, 0.6790, 0.6830, 0.6850, 0.6880, 0.6895.


Trading tips

Short positions may be opened from the current level; pending orders can be opened from the nearest resistance levels of 0.6770, 0.6790 with targets at 0.6650, 0.6575 and the stop loss at 0.6920.

LiteForex analitics. Ethereum: general review

Current trend

After a serious fall last week, the cryptocurrency market stabilized. For a few days, the price of Ether is near 406.25. Investors are waiting for new drivers.

Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), which owns the NYSE, announced work on the creation of a global platform called Bakkt. Through it, ICE plans to deposit the digital assets, and companies using Bakkt will be able to accept payments in cryptocurrencies.

Meanwhile, the reliability of digital assets continues to cause doubts. Last week, the SEC denied Winklevoss twins to create an ETF based on Bitcoin under the pretext that the currency is not sufficiently protected from manipulations. Studies of the The Wall Street Journal confirmed the regulator's concerns: there are organized groups of traders on the market that can significantly influence the prices of digital assets through coordinated purchases or sales. Such methods have long been banned in the traditional market, but continue to be operated on the cryptocurrency one.

Support and resistance

Technically, Ether continues to trade in the downward channel and in case of breakdown of the level of 406.25 (Murrey [1/8]) it can decrease to 375.00 (Murrey [0/8]) and 312.50 (Murrey [-2/8]). However, Stochastics leaving the oversold zone suggests the possibility of an upward correction. The key for "bulls" is the level of 437.50 (Murrey [1/8], the midline of Bollinger Bands) above the upper border of the descending channel. If it's broken out, targets for growth will be 500.00 (Murrey [4/8]) and 531.25 (Murrey [5/8]).

Support levels: 406.25, 375.00, 312.50.
Resistance levels: 437.50, 500.00, 531.25.

Trading tips

Long positions may be opened above 437.50 with the target at 500.00 and stop loss at 410.00.

Short positions may be opened from 395.00 with targets at 375.00, 312.50 and stop loss at 410.00.

Implementation time: 3-5 days.

LiteForex analitics. Cryptocurrency Market Review

This week, the cryptocurrency market continued to correct downwards amid the new decisions of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). On Thursday, there was an attempt to growth, but in general the trend remains descending. At present, Bitcoin is traded around 6450.00 (–8.3%), Ethereum has fallen to 360.00 (–12.2%), Ripple declined to 0.3200 (–24.1%), Bitcoin Cash fell to the level of 590.00 (–20.1%), and Litecoin decreased to 61.26 (–21.0%).

The SEC and the uncertainty surrounding the ETF solution continue to weigh on the cryptocurrency market. This week, the regulator postponed to the end of September consideration of the issue of allowing the VanEck and SolidX companies to create a Bitcoin ETF, citing the need for a more thorough analysis of the applications submitted. According to experts, out of 10 companies that applied to the SEC for the creation of ETF, VanEck and SolidX had the greatest chance of obtaining a permit, since they closely cooperate with the Cboe exchange, where they planned to place shares. Therefore, investors were disappointed by the decision of the regulator, hoping for an early solution of the issue. On the other hand, the VanEck and SolidX trust application was not declined immediately, as was the case with the Winklevoss brothers' request a week earlier. Probably, there is a fight of opinions in the SEC, and there is still a chance to receive approval of the application for the trust. Two approvals are needed to introduce a new investment product to the market from the SEC: one is needed for the ETF creation and another one is needed for the right to trade its shares. The second permit should be obtained by Cboe, but consideration of its application was postponed by the SEC to the end of September.

Among other news of the market there is the intention of the company Opera Ltd. to launch a cryptocurrency wallet in the new version of the browser for the PC, because a similar product in Opera for Android was positively received by the cryptocurrency community. The research of the Wall Street Journal which confirmed the vulnerability of the digital assets market for fraud is also worth attention. The magazine found that there are organized groups of traders at the market that can significantly influence the prices of digital assets through simultaneous coordinated purchases or sales of currencies.

In general, the trend towards a decrease remains in the cryptocurrency market. Next week, prices may continue the downward movement.

The entry into force of US sanctions against the Iranian oil sector is scheduled for November 5. Refusal of dialogue means a continuation of the pressure of the USA on the importer countries to make them refuse of the Iranian oil? Which failed with China and Russia, but France and South Korea stopped cooperating with the Islamic Republic.

Resistance levels: 67.18, 67.96, 68.75.

LiteForex analitics. USD/CAD: instrument consolidates

Current trend

The US Dollar fell against the Canadian currency on Monday, 13 August, after renewing local highs since 24 July.

As there is a lack of significant economic releases, USD moves due to technical factors. It is supported by strong July US inflation data. Instead of the expected growth, the consumer price index remained at the same level of 2.9%, but the base consumer price index rose from 2.3% to 2.4%. Investors are confident that the regulator will raise the interest rate twice more. Most likely, this will happen at the September and December Fed’s meetings.

The key US data will be released on Wednesday, when the July data on retail sales and industrial production will be published. It is forecasted that the volume of retail sales may fall from 0.5% to 0.3%, and the index of industrial production can decrease from 0.6% to 0.3%. The implementation of forecasts can affect the USD negatively.

Support and resistance

The Bollinger Bands on the daily chart is showing a gradual reverse upwards. The price range is widening but cannot cope with high volatility on the market yet. The MACD is growing and keeping a quite strong buy signal (the histogram remains above the signal line). The Stochastic is growing but is approaching its maximum levels, suggesting the USD is overbought.

Current indicators’ readings do not contradict further Bullish trend development.

Support levels: 1.3100, 1.3061, 1.3000, 1.2961, 1.2900.
Resistance levels: 1.3156, 1.3200, 1.3258, 1.3300.

LiteForex analitics. Ethereum: general review

Current trend

After the decline of the beginning of the week, quotations of Ether have attempted to grow. On Wednesday, the instrument exceeded the 300.00 level, but is now trading around 281.25 (Murray [1/8]). It is difficult to say how strong the upward momentum will be, as the situation on the market remains unstable. Its total capitalization continues to fall – from early August it fell from 278 to 203 billion dollars, which indicates a serious outflow of investors after the refusal or transfer by SEC of a number of applications for the creation of ETFs based on Bitcoin. The share of ETH in the total market capitalization is also decreasing, from 15.7% in early August to 14.1% at present.

As for the news of the crypto-currency market it is worth noting the continuation of the "migration" of digital companies to Malta, since this country now has the friendliest legislation in relation to digital assets. Following the major exchanges Binance and OKEx, ZB.com, the fifth largest digital exchange in the world, opened its office on the island. The company expects to launch a new platform and exchange crypto currency for fiat money.

Support and resistance

At present, the price has risen above the level of 281.25 (Murray [1/8]) and can continue corrective growth to 343.75 (Murray [3/8]) and 375.00 (Murray [4/8], the middle line of Bollinger Bands, the upper border of the channel). The Stochastic exits the oversold zone. However, the potential of the downtrend is not yet exhausted, which is confirmed by the reversal of the Bollinger Bands down and the MACD histogram in the negative zone. The key for the "bears" is the 250.00, its breakdown will insure a decrease to 218.75 (Murray [-1/8]) and 187.50 (Murray [-2/8]).

Support levels: 250.00, 218.75, 187.50.
Resistance levels: 312.50, 343.75, 375.00.

Trading tips

Long positions can be opened at 313.00 with targets at 343.75, 375.00 and stop loss in the area of ​​290.00.

Short positions should be opened below the level of 250.00 with targets of 218.75, 187.50 and a stop loss at 280.00.

Term of realization: 3-5 days.

LiteForex analitics. Cryptocurrency Market Review

This week, the cryptocurrency market had mixed dynamics. The decline in the beginning of the week was replaced by a corrective growth, as a result of which a significant part of losses was won back. Bitcoin is currently trading around 6500.00, Ethereum – at 300.00, Ripple – at 0.2930, Bitcoin Cash – at 535.00, and Litecoin – at 56.50.

The total capitalization of the market this week continued to decline and decreased from 214 to 203 billion dollars. At the same time, the share of altcoins volume in the market is decreasing, and the share of bitcoin has increased from 51% to 53%. It becomes clear that some investors are leaving the market, and some are switching to Bitcoin, hoping for a positive decision by the SEC to register ETF funds in September.

As for the news of the market, the European Union intends to introduce new ICO rules, which will be implemented through crowd-funding platforms. This is stated in the documents published by the European Parliament's Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs. It is planned that the organizers of the new ICO, if they expect to collect more than 8 million euros, should work within the framework of European securities legislation. Thus, new ICO products can be equated with the EU in securities. This position is close to the position of the US SEC, whose members also tend to believe that most of the cryptocurrencies are qualitatively securities.

This week it became known that the Jamaican stock exchange intends to offer its clients cryptocurrencies as trading assets by the end of this year, for which the appropriate platform is being developed. And the Securities and Exchange Commission of Thailand officially authorized the work of five crypto-exchanges and two dealers in the country. In addition, the transfer of large digital companies to Malta continues, the legislation of which is currently the friendliest with respect to cryptocurrencies. Following the major exchanges Binance and OKEx, ZB.com, the fifth largest digital exchange in the world, opened its office on the island. The company expects to launch a new platform and exchange cryptocurrency for fiat money.

In general, the continuation of the upward correction may continue next week, but the medium-term downtrend is likely to continue.

LiteForex analitics. Brent Crude Oil: general review

Current trend

Oil quotes have been growing since the middle of last week on reports of upcoming US-China trade talks on August 21-22.

Negotiations can resolve at least some of the contentious issues, although experts warn that there would be no quick results. Quotes are also supported by the probplem of oil transportation from the Perm oil basin. In this regard, the number of active oil rigs in the US for more than two months is within the range of 858-869 units, which is much lower than the peak values of 2014, when it exceeded 1600 units.

The current growth is likely to be limited, as long-term pressures on the market remain. Investors are still concerned about the trade war, which could cause a decrease in oil consumption in the two leading world economies. But the possible shortage after anti-Iran sanctions will be covered by Saudi Arabia, which was confirmed by the country's energy minister Khalid Al-Falih.

Support and resistance

Technically, the price tends to the upper border of the downward channel near the level of 73.43 (Murrey [3/8], the midline of Bollinger Bands). After its breakdown, growth can be continued to 75.00 (Murrey [4/8]) and 76.56 (Murrey [5/8]). The consolidation of the price below 71.87 will lead to the decline to the levels of 70.31 (Murrey [1/8]) and 68.75 (Murrey [0/8]).

Technical indicators show growth: Stochastic reversed up, MACD histogram is reducing in the negative zone. However, the growth potential is seen as limited.

Support levels: 71.87, 70.31, 68.75.
Resistance levels: 73.43, 75.00, 76.56.

Trading tips

Sell positions may be opened below 71.87 with targets at 70.31, 68.75 and stop loss at 72.20.
Buy positions may be opened above 73.43 with targets at 75.00, 76.56 and stop loss at 72.10.

Implementation time: 3-5 days.
