Forecast for GBP/USD on January 13, 2020

Quotes of the British pound are held for two days on the indicator line of the balance of the daily scale in red. Overcoming it will allow the price to consistently take the three immediate goals at the Fibonacci levels: 1.2968, 1.2820, 1.2730. The Marlin oscillator is in the decline zone.



On the four-hour chart, the price overcame the support of the MACD line, but did so with a gap. In this case, with a general declining trend and in the absence of warning reversal signals, the "window" serves as a harbinger of a further fall in prices, but it is not advisable for it to remain open for a long time.



We are waiting for the closure of this gap and a further decline in the British pound. The Marlin oscillator is developing in a declining trend zone.

Forecast for USD/JPY on January 14, 2020

USD/JPY
Stock indices of the US market continue to set new records, along with them are rising Japanese indices and the USD/JPY pair. Yesterday, the S&P 500 grew by 0.70%, while the Nikkei 225 is adding a comparable 0.73% today. The China A50 Chinese stock index is up 0.40%, obviously, awaiting tomorrow's signing of the first part of a trade agreement with the United States. The United States also excluded China from the list of currency manipulators. Also, US corporate reports for the fourth quarter of 2019 are starting, forecasts are optimistic. Today, the largest banks are set to report: Citigroup (earnings forecast of $1.84 per share versus $1.61 in the third quarter), JPMorgan Chase & Co (forecast of $2.34 versus $1.98 earlier), Wells Fargo ($1.12 versus $1.21, but also good). Market growth may continue.

So, if the price goes above the resistance of the red line of the price channel, we are waiting for the price in the target range of 110.83/98 formed by the extreme on November 27, 2017 and February 11, 2016. Here is the Fibonacci level of 123.6% of the growth branch from August 26 to December 2. The indicated trend line (110.26) is the upper limit of the downward price channel originating in August 2015, this is its important - overcoming the line can trigger the pair's growth by another order of two or three figures. The strength of the channel boundary is supported by the Fibonacci level of 110.0%.

On the four-hour chart, the Marlin forms a divergence, perhaps before attacking the upper boundary of the price channel, the price will subside to the support of the MACD line on daily (109.50).

Forecast for EUR/USD on January 15, 2020

EUR /USD
The dollar slightly strengthened on Tuesday, with the release of inflation data for the United States, but investors found the data not sufficient enough for a more decisive offensive. As a result, the euro showed a decline of only five points by the close of the day. The basic consumer price index added 0.1% for December against the expected 0.2%, while maintaining an annual value of 2.3%.

On the daily chart, the signal line of the Marlin oscillator moves sideways directly along the boundary of the bullish and bearish trends, which creates the risk of continued correctional growth to the Fibonacci level of 110.0% at the price of 1.1155. If the potential is not realized, a planned decrease to the Fibonacci level of 123.6% will follow at the price of 1.1073, where the MACD indicator line also passes.

On the four-hour chart, a price reversal from the MACD line was noted, but not fully realized. At the moment, the price is already above the balance line (red moving) and the Marlin oscillator is holding in the growth zone, which shows the price's intention to once again attack the MACD line. Now the condition for a further decrease is overcoming the price of yesterday's low.

In general, the situation is neutral and the euro may cheer up today's data on industrial production for November (forecast 0.3%), but tomorrow retail sales in the US for December will be released, the forecast for which is 0.5% for basic sales and 0.3% for general . It is likely that investors are planning more active actions for this data.

Gold has come to life

The storm continues to rage in the gold market. Despite the fact that only two weeks have passed since the beginning of the year, the precious metal has already managed to go to 7-year highs, collapse like a stone, and then begin to recover thanks to bad news about the trade war. Bloomberg is actively spreading rumors that tariffs on $360 billion of Chinese imports will remain in force, at least until the US presidential election, because the White House needs to assess how Beijing is fulfilling its obligation to increase purchases of American agricultural and other products. The trade war, which has lasted just under two years, does not seem to be going to stop, which means that demand for safe-haven assets will remain high.

The conflict in the Middle East is gradually fading. The market is dominated by the view that the current XAU/USD correction is due to the mass closure of long speculative positions. Hedge funds in the week of January 7 increased them to the highest level since the end of September, probably hoping that the confrontation between US and Iran will be long-lasting. Some are still hoping for it. The Standard Chartered Bank notes that the price movement due to geopolitics was stronger than previously expected. HSBC raised its forecast for gold for 2020 from $1560 to $1613 per ounce.

In my opinion, the reasons for the strengthening of the precious metal should not be found in geopolitics, but in the activities of central banks, in politics and in trade disputes instead. The Fed has made it clear that even exceeding the 2% inflation target will not force it to abandon passive behavior. The regulator is ready to endure the acceleration of consumer prices during the period of economic expansion, which is good news for the "bulls" on XAU/USD. The precious metal is traditionally perceived as a tool for hedging inflation risks, asits dynamics have a lot in common with the changes in the US CPI.

The dynamics of gold and American inflation:

The dog is buried in the increased sensitivity of gold to the real yield of US Treasury bonds. In December, inflation in the United States grew by 2.3%. This is the second best indicator for a calendar year since 2011, when its growth rate was at 3%. In 2018, consumer prices rose by 1.9%, and by 1.6% on average for 10 years.

Another factor supporting XAU / USD is the propensity of the world's leading central banks to ultra-soft monetary policy, which keeps global debt market rates close to historical lows. At the same time, a large-scale monetary stimulus contributes to the devaluation of currencies, which increases the attractiveness of gold. If global GDP does not recover as quickly as expected, regulators will further weaken monetary policy. With tariffs on $360 billion of Chinese imports still in place, this is more than likely.

Technically, after reaching the target of 113% for the "Shark pattern", a natural pullback to the 38.2% Fibonacci correction level followed. Important Pivot levels are also located here. The fact that the "bulls" managed to hold support at $1545-1548 per ounce, the hopes of restoring the upward trend remains.

Prospects and trends for gold in January and February 2020

The consolidation in the gold market ended with the New Year holidays as well as rocket salvos in Iraq, where the United States killed the commander of the Kudes Iranian unit, Qassem Soleimani. Thank God, the global war did not happen, but the nerves of the investors completely lost, and they rushed to buy gold in full accordance with the forecast published in early December 2019. However, the time has come to look at the prospects of the precious metal and make adjustments to the assessment of the situation.

As we know, the position of traders in futures contracts traded on the CME exchange has the greatest impact on the price of gold. The latest data from the Traders Obligations Report - Commitments of Traders (COT) Reports, published by the US Commodity Futures Commission - CFTC, indicates an increase in the volume of new money entering the market. In addition, the Open Interest of the gold futures contract grew from 926 thousand to 1197 thousand contracts, or almost one third between November 29 and January 10.

Such an increase in the interest of market participants in gold, which took place against the backdrop of a rise in stock indices, suggests that the departure of the price of gold to the level of $ 1,600 per troy ounce was not an accident caused by the geopolitical situation. The assassination of the general was just an excuse for the precious metal to begin to rise again after a period of consolidation that lasted until the end of the fourth quarter.

Moreover, it is very important that the increase in the price of gold was supported by speculators Managed Money, whose long positions during the period from December to January grew from 225 thousand to 300 thousand contracts. According to the CFTC classification, Managed Money are a priori net buyers. Thus, the demand for gold from buyers was accompanied by the opening of new positions in the futures contract, which suggests fundamental reasons for the continuation of the current trend. Due to this, exchange traders felt the potential and began to increase positions.

If the increase in the price of gold was caused only by the development of events in the Middle East, then, firstly, we would not see a constant influx of new money that occurred in December, and secondly, Managed Money, which are speculators, could simply not react on the events that are happening.

So, for example, what happened in September 2019 and January 2020 in the oil market. The attack on the Saudi oil infrastructure was not supported by the influx of new money into the market, and speculators were in no hurry to open new long positions, which subsequently led to a decrease in oil prices. No demand - no price increase. In December, speculators bought oil, but almost no new positions were opened in the futures, which led to a decrease in oil prices as soon as the situation in the Persian Gulf area stabilized.

However, we have an increase in Open Interest in gold and an increase in purchases by speculators at the same time, which qualitatively distinguishes this situation from the situation in the oil market. On the other hand, the price of gold declined slightly after the crisis between Iran and the United States was resolved, and this is natural, but do not be fooled by the possibility of a potential reversal, since most likely there will not be a deep decline in the gold market.

We will analyze the positioning of traders in option contracts. The most liquid option contract now is the February contract OGG0 with the closure on January 28 (Fig. 1).

Figure 1: Open Interest in an OGGO Option Contract.

First of all, the significant predominance of "call" options over "put" options is noteworthy. The Put / Call Ratio coefficient is 0.71. This means that there are only 71 Put options for every 100 Call options. In the context of the growth of Open Interest, optional barriers may not withstand and miss the price higher. With this ratio, the importance of the Max Pain point located at 1500 also decreases, and returning to this point at the time the option contract expires is becoming less and less likely. This must be taken into account when opening gold sales positions. Option barriers hold the price well, but only when there is no trend on the market.

In this regard, it can be assumed that the levels of optional support are at 1510 and 1500. There are also graphic levels of price support, where gold can return by the end of the month for purely technical reasons. After that, there is a possibility of further price growth over the next three to six months, which implies a rise in gold to the level of $ 1,750 per troy ounce. Thus, sales to the levels of 1,500-1,510 dollars will be inappropriate, but such a price can be an ideal point for buying gold, unless, of course, by that time there will be a change in the mood of buyers in the futures market. Short-term goals for such purchases may be levels 1500, 1575 and 1600, formed by options such as "Call".

Today, the World Gold Council - published its forecast for 2020. The forecast indicates the main factors that, in the opinion of the Council, will affect the price of gold this year. It is assumed that financial uncertainty and low interest rates in most developed economies will support the price of gold, as investors will seek new sectors to protect investments and generate income. As a result, demand from central banks will also remain high. This, combined with investor interest, will allow gold to be added back to its value in all currencies.

According to WGC experts, the price impulse and positioning of traders will also support the price of gold. At the same time, volatility and expectations of weaker economic growth in the short term may lead to softer consumer demand, but structural economic reforms in India and China will support consumer demand in the long term.

Thus, traders trading can earn on price fluctuations by selling and buying precious metals on the best trading conditions, but investors should not forget that gold has provided them with a yield higher than the US dollar over the past twenty years, while performing a protection function risk investment.

By investing in gold and trading it in the short term, an investor can not only profit from fluctuations in price quotes, but also insure himself against unforeseen market risks. Be very careful and follow the rules of money management.

Control zones of USDJPY 1/20/2020

Last week's movement made it possible for a local accumulation zone to form. This happened within the average monthly move, which indicates the presence of limit sell orders. Purchases from current levels are not profitable, since the probability of closing the trade in January is above the zone of the monthly move below 30%. A model has not yet been formed for selling, which indicates the need to switch to standby mode.

Keeping part of the purchases opened at the beginning of this month is the optimal strategy, since the probability of absorption of the latest growth from current levels is below 20%.

To enter a short position requires the formation of an absorption pattern at the daily level. Closing of trading on Monday should occur below the low of last week. This will indicate the appearance of a major offer from significant market players. Work in the downward direction is more profitable, since the monthly range of the average stroke has already been overcome by the pair....

Daily CZ - daily control zone. The area formed by important data from the futures market, which changes several times a year.
Weekly CZ - weekly control zone. The zone formed by important marks of the futures market, which changes several times a year.
Monthly CZ - monthly control zone. The zone, which is a reflection of the average volatility over the past year.

Technical analysis recommendations for USD/JPY and its crosses

USD / JPY

The yen began in 2020 with the realization of what did not work out last year. So far, the pair closed the week in the bullish zone of the relative weekly cloud. Now, the main task of the players is fixing in this zone to increase in the near future. After that, monthly resistance will follow 110.70 - 110.83 - 111.40. However, breaking through the monthly boundaries is a more difficult task, since this will eliminate the monthly dead cross and mark the exit to the bullish zone of the relative Ichimoku cloud at the most upper time. In this situation, support is located at 109.50 (weekly cloud + monthly medium-term trend + daily short-term trend) - 109 (weekly Tenkan and the lower border of the cloud + daily Kijun and the upper border of the cloud) - Fixing below 108.08-30 can move players away from their goals for a long time.

EUR / JPY

At the beginning of the year, the pair attempted a new test of important resistance, but the first target of the daily target for breakdown of the cloud (122.55), now strengthened by the lower border of the weekly cloud (122.71), withstood the defense again. As a result, we observe the next development of a downward correction. The nearest support is the daytime cross of Ichimoku, first Tenkan (121.96), then Kijun (121.48), as well as the most protected area 121.24 (weekly Tenkan + daytime cloud + final line of the daytime cross of Ichimoku). At the same time, securing below can significantly affect the current balance of power, opening up new prospects for players to decline.

GBP / JPY

The pound / yen is trying to gain a foothold and stay in the bullish zone relative to the weekly cloud, using the cloud as support. Now, the main attention of the players to increase is aimed at breaking through the weekly short-term trend (143.65) and eliminating the dead crosses of Ichimoku at the daily (144.38 - 145.21) and monthly (145.07) time intervals. Moreover, breaking through these resistance forms new horizons and opportunities before the players to increase. The nearest support, in turn, can now be identified at 141.54 (monthly medium-term trend + daily cloud) and 140.34 - 139.12 (weekly levels + lower border of the daily cloud). Fixing below will change the existing balance and can lead to an active recovery of bearish sentiment.

Ichimoku Kinko Hyo (9.26.52), Pivot Points (classic), Moving Average (120)

Forecast for AUD/USD on January 23, 2020

AUD / USD

The Australian dollar absorbed a positive market sentiment relative to the British pound yesterday, and just this morning, this news was actively played back on the positive employment data. By December, about 29 thousand people got a job, this is contrary and higher than the 15 thousand on the forecast. This makes the overall unemployment rate fell from 5.2% to 5.1%. In the Asian session, the growth of the "Australian dollar" graduated to 34 points, and the price exactly reached the MACD line on the daily chart. In the European session, exit above the line 0.6880 with consolidation above it and on Friday, the growth may extend to the price channel line 0.6903.

The price exceeded the MACD line on the four-hour chart but is still under the balance line, which means that the situation is developing mainly according to the older chart. For this day, everything will depend on whether the price can fix itself above the MACD line on the daily chart. The signal line of the Marlin oscillator in the zone of positive values is already a sign of the price's intention to overcome the resistance of the senior TF, but in any scenario this growth is corrective.

EUR/USD: Christine Lagarde pessimism and panic over 2019-nCoV

The euro-dollar pair is plunging down: at the moment, the bears are trying to gain a foothold below the support level of 1.1050 in order to discover the way to the area of the ninth figure. Although in the morning the pair showed corrective growth, in the hope of hawkish notes from the ECB. But to the disappointment of the EUR/USD bulls, Thursday events turned against the European currency. And it's not just because of Christine Lagarde's overly cautious rhetoric. The financial world today has finally succumbed to panic about the spread of the deadly 2019-nCoV virus. Demand for defensive assets has increased again, as well as that for the US currency, which many investors use as a kind of safe-haven in times of heightened uncertainty. In other words, the EUR/USD bulls hope for a resumption of the upward trend burst like a soap bubble - Lagarde could not support the single currency, while the anti-risk sentiment only increased the pressure on the pair.

The European Central Bank today, quite expectedly, left all the parameters of monetary policy unchanged. In its accompanying statement, the regulator indicated that the ECB rates will remain at the current "or lower level" until inflation approaches the target two percent level "or close enough to this target". This wording was not a surprise to traders. The only innovation in the final communique is the announcement that the ECB will conduct a strategic review of its policy (for the first time in 17 years). However, firstly, this process will take about a year, and secondly, the regulator has not yet shared any details regarding the scope of the policy review. Therefore, the main attention of traders today was riveted to the press conference of Christine Lagarde.

It cannot be said that the head of the ECB took a peremptory-dovish position. Not at all. During her speech, she, in particular, stated that "current rates are worrisome," therefore, in the future, the regulator will take into account the collateral effect of low rates. This statement suggests that there is still a split in the ECB, which appeared back in September last year, when Mario Draghi "pushed" the decision to resume QE. Some of the central bank members then also expressed their concern about the side effect of negative rates.

However, the above remark could not provide the euro with long-term support. Lagarde generally maintained a pessimistic stance on the current situation. First of all, according to the head of the ECB, industrial production is a "brake"on the European economy. On the whole, the existing risks are "tilted downward," although they are less pronounced compared to last year. Despite the signing of the first phase of a trade deal between the US and China, the ECB continues to be concerned about this protracted trade conflict. Lagarde uttered a rather capacious phrase on this subject: "... geopolitics is a threat that leaves the door open for accommodation policy." At the same time, Lagarde rather modestly commented on the growth of European inflation. According to her, the regulator noted "some signs of growth", however, these trends "correspond to earlier expectations". Summing up the January meeting, the head of the ECB said that monetary policy will remain stimulating "for a long period of time", despite some signs of stabilization of the situation in the eurozone.

Buyers of the EUR/USD pair certainly expected more from today's meeting. Previous macroeconomic releases made it possible to count on a more hawkish tone by the central bank chief. Therefore, following the meeting, the pair updated the daily low. But ironically, the press conference of Lagarde coincided with a general increase in anti-risk sentiment in the markets. For example, the yen paired with the greenback fell to the bottom of the 109th figure, and the dollar index jumped to a one-month high (the last time it was at 97.57 points in early December), reflecting investor demand for defensive instruments. Stock indices - on the contrary, collapsed.

Asian markets have been hit hardest. In particular, the Hong Kong Hang Seng index fell 2.8%, the Shanghai blue chips index fell 1.7%, and the Japanese Nikkei lost 0.9%. The shares of tourism and passenger transportation companies (including airlines) fell most strongly. There is growing concern in financial markets that a virus spreading from China could slow global growth. Cases of infection have already been recorded in Taiwan, Thailand, Japan, South Korea, Saudi Arabia and the United States. The authorities of the PRC quarantined two cities in Hubei province (including the 11 millionth Wuhan), canceling all the large-scale events in Beijing dedicated to the celebration of the New Year on the lunar calendar (January 25).

Such unprecedented measures have reminded traders of the effects of the 2003 pneumonia epidemic. Then the key countries of the Asian region in total lost, according to various estimates, from 30 to 40 billion dollars. (first of all, the tourism sector has suffered). The oil market fell then, due to a significant decrease in air transportation, and, accordingly, the demand for aviation fuel and crude oil.

It is worth noting that at the moment it is impossible to say with certainty that a repetition of the year 2003 awaits us, however, in the context of the prospects of the foreign exchange market (and directly the EUR/USD pair), the very fact that traders succumbed to panic is important. If the situation with the spread of the virus will gain momentum, the pair will continue to decline, despite the other fundamental factors. So far, the EUR/USD bulls are defending - the bears have failed to gain a foothold below the support level of 1.1050. But in the event of an increase in anti-risk sentiment, buyers of the pair will not be able to maintain this level - the price will drop to the ninth figure.

GBP/USD. UK after Brexit: waiting for collapse?

The UK will officially leave the European Union in five days. More precisely, the so-called "transition period" will begin, with which many identify the beginning of the real Brexit. Over the next 11 months, little will change for Great Britain. The country will cease to take part in the decision-making of the European Union, the British deputies will leave the European Parliament, however, the established trade relations and other rules and regulations by which the UK has lived in recent years will remain in force. Now, a month and a half after Boris Johnson's victory in the election, when passions and euphoria subsided, many experts conclude that the victory of the Conservatives is a result of the fragmentation of the political views of the opponents of Brexit, and not the excessive popularity of Conservatives among the people. In other words, there was only one option with the end of Brexit - vote for the Conservatives, and there were much more options against Brexit. At the same time, both the Scots, the Northern Irish, and the Welsh, supporting Brexit, had to vote not for "their" parties, but all for those Conservatives. For those who reject Brexit, they voted for the Scottish National Party, for the Labour Party, and for other political forces. As a result, all the voices of the opponents of Brexit were divided into 3-4 parties, all the voices of the supporters of Brexit left the party of Boris Johnson. However, now all this is not important. It's important - what the odious prime minister and his ruling party will lead the country to.

In fact, in the coming year, all questions to Johnson's team come down to whether he will be able to agree with the U on a new trade deal that will operate after the end of the transition period? According to many experts, the main thing that is required of Johnson is to sign such a deal that does not harm the UK economy as much as possible, which has been losing huge amounts over the past three years due to Brexit and, in any case, will continue to lose them in 2020. Nobody believes that the deal will be the way Johnson himself sees it. Johnson is not Trump, but the European Union is not China. The biggest question that causes skepticism among all market participants is the timing of negotiations on trade relations with the EU. Eleven months is very little to conclude such a comprehensive deal. Thus, either Johnson will be able to conclude a "surface" agreement in a short time, or he will have to extend the transition period for two years (which Johnson does not want) and conduct more meaningful negotiations, without forcing events and slowly.

Well, the biggest danger for London now comes from Edinburgh. Nicola Sturgeon, the first Minister of Scotland, has repeatedly stated that "London will not be able to lock us up and hope that everything will work out." Scotland opposes an exit from the EU, but advocates an exit from the UK if its interests are not taken into account by the government of Johnson. "If the UK continues to exist, it is only on the basis of universal consent," said Sturgeon. A formal request for a second independence referendum has already been sent to Johnson and has been rejected. However, it is unlikely that Edinburgh will so simply dwell on the refusal of permission to referendum. In the best case for Britain, the Scots will regularly put this issue on the agenda. At worst, separatism, refusal to subordinate to London, and unauthorized referendum are possible. I don't even want to think about what awaits Britain in the second case. Riots, a military conflict and a host of other "unpleasant things" are possible. Thus, all those who, following Johnson's victory in the elections, exhaled and considered that all the troubles are now behind, all that can be said is that all the troubles are still ahead, and Brexit now looks like the smallest of the problems of Great Britain.
