Technical Analysis – EURGBP to hold uptrend in near term; 20-SMA key support

Posted on July 23, 2019 at 7:45 am GMT

EURGBP has been in the green zone for the past twelve weeks, topping its rally at an almost six-month high of 0.9050 last week. The 20-day simple moving average (SMA) has played a key role in rejecting bearish corrections and therefore should be closely watched if negative momentum resumes. The fast Stochastics, however, are currently approaching the 20 oversold mark, while the RSI and the red Tenkan-sen are in consolidation, all flagging an overall neutral-to-positive bias for the short-term. Should the 20-day SMA assist the [..]

Amazon pulled away from a nine-month high of 2032 in the previous weeks, to halt yesterday at the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the up move, from 1670 to 2032, of 1949. The 21-day simple moving average (SMA) is also very close and a hammer formation has taken shape, pushing the price above the resistance of 1964.

Technical Analysis – EURCAD ticks above 22-month low; looks oversold

Posted on July 22, 2019 at 1:22 pm GMT

EURCAD recovered slightly to the upside after it reached a fresh 22-month low around the 1.4600 psychological mark last week. However, the pair dived aggressively from the 1.4880 – 1.5210 trading range, extending bearish actions below the short-term moving averages in the daily timeframe. The RSI and the MACD are lacking direction as both are moving in negative area with weaker momentum than before, suggesting overstretched market.

Technical Analysis – ETHUSD struggles under 40-SMA with weak momentum

Posted on July 22, 2019 at 10:48 am GMT

ETHUSD has been moving with weak momentum over the last few sessions, remaining between the 20- and 40-simple moving averages (SMAs) in the 4-hour chart. Following the rebound on 187.63, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the upward wave from 80.00 to 362.045, the technical indicators are suggesting more gains to come ahead; the stochastic is positively sloped and below the overbought zone, while the MACD is extending its upward movement towards the zero line. In the event of an upside reversal, [..]

Posted on July 22, 2019 at 10:05 am GMT

EURAUD descended from a five-and-a-half-month high of 1.6447, over a one-month period, to break through a double obstacle of the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) and the uptrend line from Feb 2017. Price stalled just below the 1.5900 psychological level, where buyers have come on board to try and move back north. The price has crossed downwards through the Ichimoku cloud and all simple moving averages. The 50- and 100-day (SMAs), although above the 200-SMA, have started to turn down, [..]

Technical Analysis – Gold bulls pause rally at fresh 6-year highs

Posted on July 22, 2019 at 8:21 am GMT

Gold spiked to a fresh six-year high of 1,453 on Friday after closing above the 50% Fibonacci of the three-year old downleg from 1,796 to 1,046, but the market could not sustain the gains, with the price pulling back near the Fibonacci level.

The slowdown in the 20-day simple [..]

Technical Analysis – EURUSD hovers near 1.1200; maintains weak bias in near term

Posted on July 22, 2019 at 6:15 am GMT

EURUSD has been under pressure over the last three weeks as it failed several times to jump above the short-term simple moving averages (SMAs) and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the downleg from 1.1815 to 1.1106 near 1.1275. Short-term momentum indicators are pointing to a continuation of the bearish bias. The RSI bounced off the neutral threshold of 50 and is edging lower, while the MACD oscillator is strengthening its movement to the downside below trigger and zero lines. [..]

Posted on July 19, 2019 at 1:51 pm GMT

EURCHF continued southbound from a 6-month high of 1.1475 on April 23, breaking out of an 8-month period sideways move to push towards a 23-month low of 1.1055. Presently, sellers are fracturing the support trying to continue the bearish bias. The 14-day simple moving average (SMA) is beginning a bearish cross of the 21-day SMA, whereas the long-term SMAs coincide with the down move. The MACD has crossed below the trigger line and the RSI approaches the 30 level, both in [..]


Technical Analysis – Gold drops after flying to more than 2-year high

Posted on July 19, 2019 at 11:21 am GMT

Gold advanced to a more than two-year high of 1,452.87 earlier today, but quickly reversed lower near the previous highs of 1,438. The technical indicators seem to be overstretched in the daily timeframe as the RSI is reversing lower after it touched the 70 level, while the MACD has found obstacle at the trigger line. If the price successfully surpasses the two-year high (1,452.87), it could prove a trigger point for another bullish round towards the 1,475 mark, registered on [..]
