AUD/USD: RBA is not so pessimistic

Current trend

At present, the RBA needs to make sure that a decrease in interest rates is really appropriate. According to RBA Meeting's Minutes, business conditions in the country are seen as very favorable and economic growth is likely to strengthen despite high unemployment rate.
Today, attention needs to be paid to Consumer Price Index, Industrial Production and Capacity Utilization statistics for October, due in the US. The indicator are expected to grow that will negatively affect the AUD/USD pair.

Support and resistance

On Friday, the AUD/USD pair rebounded down from the resistance level of 0.7150 (EMA200 and EMA144 on the 4-hour chart) and, at present, continues declining within channels on the 4-hour (lower border at 0.6950, September lows) and weekly (lower border below 0.6700) charts.
At the same time, there is an upward channel on the daily chart between the support and resistance levels of 0.7030 (November lows) and 0.7500 (EMA200 and 23.6% Fibonacci correction), respectively. Thus, an upward correction towards 0.7150 (EMA50), 0.7200, 0.7370 (EMA144) is possible, but OsMA and Stochastic indicators recommend short positions.
Support levels: 0.7030, 0.6950, 0.6910.
Resistance levels: 0.7150, 0.7200, 0.7325, 0.7370, 0.7500.

Trading tips

Short positions can be opened from the level of 0.7065 with targets at 0.7030, 0.6950, 0.6910 and stop-loss at 0.7115.
Long positions can be opened from the level of 0.7125 with targets at 0.7150, 0.7200, 0.7300, 0.7370 and stop-loss at 0.7080.

USD/CAD: in upward trend

Current trend

Since the opening of the Asian session, the US Dollar has been growing. Yesterday, the US currency gained support from macroeconomic statistics that strengthened expectations of a hike in US interest rates at the upcoming Fed meeting.
US Energy Information Administration reported a rise by 0.961 billion barrels in crude oil stocks that added pressure on Canada's currency.
Amid expectations of US interest rates increase, oversupply of the world oil market and Canada's loose monetary policy, the USD/CAD pair tends to continue growing in the medium term.

Though OsMA and Stochastic on the daily chart recommend short positions, they are still giving buy signals on the weekly chart. On the 4-hour chart, the indicators are turning to long positions as well.
Long positions remain valid while the price is trading above the key support level of 1.2965 (38.2% Fibonacci and EMA 144 on the daily chart).

AUD/USD: pair under pressure

Current trend

Today the AUD/USD pair is falling.
The pair is pressured by investors expectations of an interest rates increase in the US at the December Fed’ meeting and further monetary policy easing in Australia. In addition, Australian economic problems may get worse. The unemployment rate could increase as companies in the mining industry continue cutting investments, while commodities prices keep falling amid slowing Chinese economy.
Thus, until 1 December when the RBA Interest Rate Decision is due the pair will remain under pressure. If interest rate are increased then, the fall in the pair will accelerate.

Support and resistance

Since the beginning of the month, the pair remains in an ascending correctional channel on the 4-hour chart.
However, a breakdown of the support levels at 0.7200 (ЕМА50), 0.7170 (ЕМА200, ЕМА144, lower border of the ascending channel on the 4-hour chart, ЕМА50 on the daily chart) would return the price in a downward channel on the daily chart and sends the pair to 0.7030 (November lows), 0.6950, 0.6910 (year lows).
OsMA and Stochastic on the 4-hour and daily charts recommend short positions.
Support levels: 0.7170, 0.7100, 0.7030, 0.6950, 0.6910.
Resistance levels: 0.7250, 0.7325, 0.7370, 0.7500.

Trading tips

Pending sell orders can be placed at the level of 0.7190 with targets at 0.7110, 0.7090, 0.7030, 0.6950, 0.6910 and stop-loss at 0.7220.
Pending buy orders can be placed at the level of 0.7240 with targets at 0.7290, 0.7300, 0.7370 and stop-loss at 0.7190.

According to the Fed Fund Futures, the probability of the rate increase in December is at 78%. On Friday, March futures on silver fell by 12.7 cents, while the WSJ Dollar index remains at 13-year highs.

Prior to the publication of important data the price will stabilise near the level of 14.00 (year lows). An upwards correction towards the level of 14.60 (ЕМА144, ЕМА200 on the 4-hour chart) is possible. However, a breakdown of the level of 14.00 would accelerate the fall.
On the 4-hour and daily charts, OsMA and Stochastic are turning to purchases.
Support levels: 14.00, 13.80, 13.50.
Resistance levels: 14.35, 14.60, 14.80, 15.30.

Trading tips

Short positions can be opened from current prices with targets at 14.00, 13.80, 13.50 and stop-loss at 14.35.

However, today poor macroeconomic statistics from Switzerland supported the pair. The SVME – Purchasing Managers’ Index for November fell to 49.7 points, while Real Retail Sales shrank by 0.8%. Both indices came out significantly worse than forecasts. Furthermore, the third quarter GDP grew by only 0.8% against the previous year that was also worse than expected.

On the daily chart, the pair is moving along an ascending channel between the levels of 1.0340 and 0.9800. Despite the price is trading at year highs, the growth potential towards the level of 1.0600 (ЕМА144 on the monthly chart) remains in the pair.
At the same time, a downward correction to the level of 1.0215 (ЕМА50, lower border of an ascending channel on the 4-hour chart) is possible.
On the daily and weekly charts, OsMA and Stochastic indicate a growth continuation, while on the 4-hour chart they turned to sales.
Support levels: 1.0215, 1.0130, 1.0000, 0.9880, 0.9800.
Resistance levels: 1.0300, 1.0340, 1.0400.

USD/JPY: long positions preferred

Current trend

Since the beginning of Asian session today the USD/JPY pair fell.
The pair was pressured by poor data on the Chinese manufacturing sector that showed further cooling of the Chinese economy. In addition, pressure on the pair comes amid investors’ expectations of further monetary policy easing in the eurozone because the Yen serves as the safe-haven currency during market instability.
At the same time the pair is supported by expectations of an interest rates hike in the US in December and further monetary policy easing in Japan as it was mentioned before by Bank of Japan Governor Kuroda.

Support and resistance

On the daily chart, the pair is moving along an ascending channel with the upper border near the level of 124.50, while the last 4 weeks it has been trading in a range between the levels of 123.70 (23.6% Fibonacci correction) and 122.50 (38.2% correction).
The pair is prevented from further fall by strong support levels at 122.50, 122.25 (ЕМА144), 122.00 (ЕМА200 on the 4-hour chart), while a breakout of the level of 123.70 would send the pair to 125.00, 125.65 (year highs).
On the 4-hour, daily and weekly charts, OsMA and Stochastic recommend long positions.
Support levels: 122.50, 122.25, 122.00, 121.50.
Resistance levels: 123.50, 123.70, 124.00, 124.50.

EUR/USD: general analysis

Current trend

Yesterday, the European currency strengthened slightly against the US Dollar, which was under pressure from US statistics on ISM Manufacturing PMI. In November, the indicator declined from 50.1 to 48.6 points, while analysts forecasted a growth to 50.4 points.
November Data on Consumer Price Index is due today in the EU. The indicator is expected to come in at 0.2%. Even if the forecast is confirmed, a possible growth in the EUR will be limited as ECB is expected to continue easing its monetary policy at the upcoming meeting.
Later on, Fed’s Chair Janet Yellen gives her speech. Market participants might get more confirming evidence that the Regulator will raise its interest rates before the year is out. The futures market is pricing in up to a 75.2% probability of a hike at the December meeting.

Support and resistance

On the 4-hour chart, MACD indicator recommends long positions. Stochastic is giving a sell signal – the indicator has left the overbought zone; the %K line has crossed the %D line from top-to-bottom.
A likelier scenario seems to be continuation of downward movement within a descending channel.
The nearest support levels are 1.0555, 1.0500.
The nearest resistance levels are 1.0688, 1.0762, 1.0820.

Trading tips

Long positions can be opened if the price breaks out the level of 1.0640 with the target at 1.0685 and stop-loss at 1.0630.
Short positions can be opened from the level of 1.0590 with targets at 1.0555, 1.0500 and stop-loss at 1.0600.

XAU/USD: price of gold declines

Current trend

Since the opening of the trading day, the prices of gold and other precious metals are declining amid the strengthening in the US Dollar.
The correlation between the price of gold and the EUR/USD pair is nearly 92%. The EUR is under strong pressure ahead of ECB interest rate decision, therefore, a decline in the price of gold is likely to continue.
Demand for the USD, on the contrary, continues growing due to expectations of a hike in US interest rates. At present, gold does not seem to be a profitable investment as borrowing costs of buying and storing it tend to increase.

Support and resistance

Though on the daily chart, OsMA and Stochastic recommend long positions, they are giving sell signals on the 4-hour and weekly charts.
Short positions are preferable. A growth to 1138.00 (38.2% Fibonacci correction and EMA144) seems possible if the price consolidates above the levels of 1085.00 and 1095.00.
Support levels: 1065.00, 1060.00, 1057.00.
Resistance levels: 1075.00, 1085.00, 1095.00, 1105.00, 1118.00.

Trading tips

Short positions can be opened from the level of 1060.00 with targets at 1050.00, 1010.00 and stop-loss at 1072.00.
Long positions can be opened from the level of 1076.00 with targets at 1085.00, 1095.00, 1105.00 and stop-loss at 1073.00.

USD/CHF: safe-haven currency

Current trend

Since the beginning of the week, the USD/CHF pair was declining.
The pair was falling despite the publication of poor data in Switzerland that came out significantly worse than forecasts and strong statistics on the US labour market. The Swiss GDP in the third quarter failed to show any growth, Real Retail Sales shrank by 0.8%, while the SVME Purchasing Managers’ Index fell to 49.7 points.
The main pressure on the pair resulted from increased cautiousness on the market prior to the publication of key statistics in the US that pushed investors to switch their funds into the safe-haven Franc.
Today attention needs to be paid to the ECB Press conference and its Interest Rate Decision, Fed’s Yellen testifies, FOMC Member Mester speech, and Markit and ISM PMI’s in the US.

Support and resistance

On the 4-hour chart, the pair is moving along an ascending channel with the lower border near the level of 1.0185 and upper border above the level of 1.0340.
A downward correction can continue to the levels of 1.0180, 1.0130. At the same time, a growth in the pair can go up to the level of 1.0600 (ЕМА144 on the monthly chart).
On the daily chart, OsMA and Stochastic recommend short positions, while on the 4-hour chart they are turning to purchases.
Support levels: 1.0230, 1.0185, 1.0130, 1.0000, 0.9880, 0.9800.
Resistance levels: 1.0300, 1.0340, 1.0400.

Trading tips

Pending sell orders can be placed at the level of 1.0180 with targets at 1.0100, 1.0080, 1.0000 and stop-loss at 1.0220.
Pending buy orders can be placed at the level of 1.0240 with targets at 1.0300, 1.0340, 1.0400, 1.0600 and stop-loss at 1.0190.

Brent: general review

Current trend

Yesterday the price of Brent crude oil significantly corrected due to a Dollar decline and prior to the OPEC meeting, which is due today.
According to the majority of experts, OPEC is not going to reduce quotes despite some speculation that Saudi Arabia can reduce its output. Contrary to that, there is a possibility that quotes will be increased due to Indonesia joining the cartel and Iran’s plans to increase output after sanctions are lifted. Therefore, total output could increase to 31 million barrels instead of today’s 30 million barrels a day. In this case, the price of oil might decline below year lows near the level of 42.46.

Support and resistance

The nearest support level is at 42.46 (yesterday low).
The nearest resistance level is at 44.66 (yesterday high).

Trading tips

Short positions can be opened from current prices with the target at 42.46 and stop-loss at 44.66.
If OPEC decides to reduce quotes at the meeting today, open long positons with the target at 46.44 and stop-loss at 44.00.

AUD/USD: Australia Dollar managed to strengthen

Current trend

On Thursday, the AUD/USD pair hit its new highs of the week. However, it should be noted that the pair strengthened in the second half of the day, while during the Asian session, the Australian currency was under pressure from weak macroeconomic statistics for October.
Australia's exports fell by 3% after a 3% growth in September. Imports were down to 0% from previous 2%. As a result, trade balance deficit surged from 2403 to 3305 billion.
Later on, the pair managed to strengthen amid the Fed Chair Janet Yellen speech. She confirmed the possibility of an interest rate hike at the upcoming meeting, but the Regulator will have to consider the real economic indicators.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands indicator on the daily chart is growing moderately, while the price range is narrowing down at the bottom. MACD is keeping its upward dynamics, though growth of the histogram is slowing down. Stochastic is in the overbought zone and trying to turn down.
According to the indicators, a downward correction might form in the short term.
Support levels: 0.7330, 0.7275, 0.7234, 0.7200, 0.7183, 0.7158 (23 November low).

EUR/USD: NFPR had little effect

Current trend

Despite strong Friday’s data on the Nonfarm Payrolls in the US, the Dollar could not recover losses of Thursday.
Nonetheless, November NFPR suggest a steady recovery of the US labour market. The figure came out stronger than was predicted by economists at 211 thousands new jobs, while October figure was revised up from 271 to 298 thousands new jobs. In addition, Average Hourly Earnings in November increased by 0.2%.
Considering strong recent data from the US, the probability of an interest rate hike in December significantly increases that could lead to the USD strengthening.

Support and resistance

For the downward trend to resume the price should consolidate below the support levels at 1.0820 (ЕМА200 on the 4-hour chart, May and July lows), 1.0760 (ЕМА144 on the 4-hour chart).
At the same time, a consolidation above the level of 1.0890 (ЕМА50 on the daily chart) could allow an upward correction towards the level of 1.1050 (ЕМА144, upper border of a descending channel on the daily chart) to continue.
On the daily and weekly charts, OsMA and Stochastic suggest a growth continuation, while on the 4-hour chart the indicators are turning to sales.
Support levels: 1.0820, 1.0760, 1.0700, 1.0600, 1.0560, 1.0500.
Resistance levels: 1.0940, 1.1050, 1.1180, 1.1285.

Trading tips

Pending sell orders can be placed from the level of 1.0845 with targets at 1.0820, 1.0760, 1.0710 and stop-loss at 1.0890.
Pending buy orders can be placed from the level of 1.0910 with targets at 1.0940, 1.1050, 1.1090 and stop-loss at 1.0880.

The Unemployment Rate remained unchanged at 5.0%, while the Nonfarm Payrolls came out better than forecasts.

After reaching the key support level at 1070.00 (EMA144 on the monthly chart), the pair remains in correction that could continue to the levels of 1085.00 (EMA144), 1092.00 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart), a breakout of which would send the pair to 1100.00 (EMA50 on the daily chart) and 1118.00 (23.6% Fibonacci correction).
On the daily chart, OsMA and Stochastic recommend long positions. On the 4-hour chart, Stochastic is also turning to purchases.
Support levels: 1070.00, 1060.00, 1053.00, 1050.00, 1045.00.
Resistance levels: 1085.00, 1092.00, 1105.00, 1110.00, 1118.00.

Trading tips

Pending sell orders can be placed from the level of 1085.00, 1092.00 with targets at 1070.00, 1060.00, 1050.00, 1010.00 and stop-loss at 1095.00, and from the level of 1060.00 with targets at 1050.00, 1010.00 and stop-loss at 1072.00.

XAG/USD: in correction

Current trend

Yesterday on COMEX, the price of March futures on silver fell by 21.6 cents.
The pair remains under pressure amid expectations of an interest rate hike in the US in December this year and a further cycle of gradual monetary policy tightening in the US in the next year. In addition, the price of silver is pressured by falling commodities and oil prices.
Due to the absence of important macroeconomic publications today and prior to meetings of the Bank of England and the Swiss NB that are due tomorrow, the pair will continue moving along a sideways channel.

An upward correction in the pair can continue up to the levels of 14.40 (ЕМА144), 14.50 (ЕМА200 on the 4-hour chart). At the same time, a breakdown of the level of 14.00 (year lows) will accelerate the fall and sends the price to 12.30, 13.00 (2009 lows).
On the daily and weekly charts, OsMA and Stochastic recommend short positions, while on the 4-hour chart they start turning to purchases indicating that the upward correction can continue.
Support levels: 14.00, 13.80, 13.50.

EUR/USD: general analysis
Current trend
The Fed holds its finial meeting of the year on Wednesday. Many market participants expect a hike in US interest rates, so if the forecast is confirmed, the European currency is likely to weaken.
However, as long as inflation has not reached the target level of 2% yet, it might be seen as a determining factor for a forthcoming decision. Another negative aspect is Manufacturing PMI which came in below the key level of 50 points. This data might indicate a slowdown in economic growth.
Thus, in its decision making, the Fed will consider labor market statistics, inflation rate and the world economic situation.
Supportandresistance
Since the opening of the trading day, the European currency has been slightly declining against the US Dollar.
The key resistance level is still at 1.1040 the breakout of which would allow the price to continue growing towards 1.1150-1.1200.
Support level: 1.0925.
The nearest resistance level: 1.1055.
Trading tips

USD/CAD: review and forecast
Current trend
On Monday, the USD/CAD pair hit its highest levels in more than 11 years. The demand for the US Dollar is strong ahead of the Fed meeting. The Canadian Dollar, in its turn, is under enormous pressure from falling oil prices.
Most investors expect a hike in US interest rate by 0.25 basis points. It is the tone of Fed’s Chair Janet Yellen’s comments that still raises doubts. If she points to a slow-paced series of rate increases, the USD will strengthen slightly. Otherwise, in case of a more hawkish view, a surge in the USD is expected.
Consumer Price Index is due today in the US. In monthly terms, zero inflation is expected; in annual terms, analysts forecast an increase from 0.2% to 0.4%. More positive data will strengthen the USD.
Later on, BoC Governor Stephen Poloz gives his speech. Low oil prices are strongly affecting the country’s economy, and the Regulator might reduce its interest rate to minus -0.5%. If such a possibility is confirmed, the CAD would weaken more against the USD.
Support and resistance
On the daily chart, a doji pattern has formed that suggests the possibility of a downward correction.
Support levels: 1.3675, 1.3623, 1.1355.
Resistance levels: 1.3780, 1.3823, 1.3900.
Trading tips
Long positions can be opened above the level of 1.3785 with targets at 1.3825 and 1.3900.
Short positions can be opened below the level of 1.3675 with targets at 1.3630 and 1.3560.

EUR/USD: general analysis

Current trend
The single European currency continues declining against the US Dollar. The main factor which affects the EUR/USD pair is the Fed’s decision to raise interest rates by 0.25 points.

USD/JPY: BoJ loose monetary policy


Current trend
At the meeting on Friday, the Bank of Japan decided to keep its monetary policy mostly unchanged. BoJ Governor stated the Regulator aims at achieving an inflation rate of 2 per cent; however, much depends on the price of oil. Therefore, Japan’s Central Bank might start taking more decisive action soon.
Today, the US Dollar is gaining back its losses against the Japanese Yen. As the Federal Reserve and the Bank of Japan have different approaches to monetary policy, the USD/JPY pair tends to be strengthening in the medium term.
