Technical Analysis – AUDNZD gears up for another test of 2-year highs

Posted on August 20, 2020 at 3:02 pm GMT

AUDNZD jumped to a fresh 2-year high of 1.1040 earlier this week, though the pair encountered strong resistance near that area and subsequently pulled back. Now, the bulls have taken over again and the price seems to be headed for another test of that zone. A potential break above it would reinforce confidence in the uptrend. Short-term momentum oscillators on the four-hour chart are reflecting the latest spike higher. The RSI is already above 50 and looks to be headed [..]


Technical Analysis – AUDJPY capped by recent highs, uptrend pauses

Posted on August 20, 2020 at 11:14 am GMT

AUDJPY has been trading in a narrow sideways range for a month now, between 76.80 and 74.70. A break in either direction is needed to reveal the pair’s short-term tendency, though in the bigger picture, only a decisive move below 72.70 would call into question the five-month uptrend.   Short-term oscillators detect fading upside momentum and imply that the pair could test the lower bound of its recent range soon. The RSI is pointing down and looks ready to cross [..]

BoC meeting: With a little anxiety from the US – Forex News Preview

Posted on July 14, 2020 at 9:49 am GMT

The Bank of Canada (BoC) will wrap up its policy meeting at 14:00 GMT Wednesday, and while no action is expected, the accompanying statement could still be crucial. Even though the Canadian economy is healing, the resurgence of infections in the US is scary given Canada’s exposure to America, and might lead policymakers to strengthen their easing bias. If so, that would argue for a negative reaction in the loonie. Longer term though, the stage seems set for a powerful [..]

Loonie left behind in risk rally, can jobs data help? – Forex News Preview

Posted on July 8, 2020 at 1:47 pm GMT

The Canadian dollar has underperformed other G10 commodity currencies lately, eating the dust of the aussie and the kiwi since markets bottomed in March, despite a powerful rally in oil prices. This might reflect uncertainties emanating from the US, which Canada’s economy is highly exposed to, and the threat of new tariffs. The upcoming jobs data at 12:30 GMT Friday could finally bring some good news, though the loonie’s broader direction in the coming weeks will depend mostly on risk [..]


Technical Analysis – EURAUD posts ‘death cross’, yet remains quiet

Posted on July 1, 2020 at 9:46 am GMT

EURAUD recently recorded a so-called death cross, meaning that the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) crossed below the 200-day one, which is a negative trend signal. That being said, the pair continues to trade very quietly between 1.6530 and 1.6020 since early June, suggesting that the very short-term outlook looks neutral, even if the broader one is negative. Short-term oscillators paint a mildly bearish picture, suggesting that the next move may be lower. The RSI is below 50 already and [..]


Technical Analysis – USDCHF moves sideways, but negative trend still in play

Posted on July 1, 2020 at 7:19 am GMT

USDCHF has been consolidating in recent weeks, staying confined within a narrow sideways range between 0.9550 and 0.9420 since mid-June. Nonetheless, the broader price structure still consists of lower peaks and lower troughs, with the pair also trading below a downtrend line drawn from the peaks of March. Short term momentum oscillators are near their neutral levels, echoing the recent lack of direction. The RSI is just below 50 and seems to have flatlined, while the MACD is basically at [..]


Technical Analysis – AUDJPY consolidates, but picture still positive

Posted on June 30, 2020 at 11:18 am GMT

AUDJPY has been confined within a narrow range in recent weeks, between 74.40 and 72.70. Yet, the bigger picture is still bullish as the pair remains above a three-month upside support line and the price structure still consists of higher peaks and higher troughs. What’s more, the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) looks ready to cross above the 200-day one, forming a so-called ‘golden cross’, which would be another positive sign. Short-term oscillators don’t tell us much about the next [..]


Technical Analysis – EURGBP jumps above 0.9100, continues upward trend

Posted on June 30, 2020 at 8:00 am GMT

EURGBP levitated higher this week, continuing the pattern of higher highs and higher lows on the daily chart above an uptrend line drawn from the lows of February. The pair is also trading above all its simple moving averages (SMAs), all of which suggests that the outlook is bullish. Short-term oscillators mostly concur with that assessment, as the RSI is already positive and is hovering just below its 70 line, while the MACD is above both its zero and red [..]


Technical Analysis – AUDJPY pulls back, but uptrend still in play

Posted on June 23, 2020 at 12:47 pm GMT

AUDJPY retreated recently after touching a one-year high near 76.80, but the pair found fresh buy orders at 72.70 and rebounded again. The structure of higher highs and higher lows on the daily chart remains intact, and the price is still trading above a three-month upside support line. If the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) crosses above the 200-day one soon, completing a so-called ‘golden cross’, that would be another bullish signal. Short-term oscillators like the RSI and the MACD [..]


Technical Analysis – USDCHF rebounds, but downtrend still in play

Posted on June 17, 2020 at 1:34 pm GMT

USDCHF recovered somewhat after touching a three-month low of 0.9375, but the rebound has been capped by the 50-period simple moving average (SMA) on the four-hour chart, and negative forces seem to have taken over again. The broader picture is still bearish, with the pattern of lower highs and lower lows not broken by the latest rebound. Momentum oscillators like the RSI and the MACD are both near their neutral levels, not revealing much about the next directional wave. If [..]
