Yesterday was a very slow trading day for the GBP/USD pair as the market holidays in Europe and Asia left several trading desks vacant, thereby decreasing the amount of market volatility. The currency pair had briefly attempted to test its range highs at 1.2945 points but then eventually dropped in value as the day progressed before finally closing down yesterday’s session at 1.2900 points.

There is little market volatility nowadays in spite of Trump being as crass as usual with regards to his public comments on Twitter regarding US relationships with other countries such as Russia and China, mostly because market players have somehow gotten used to the President’s attitude. As a result, the GBP/USD pair was largely affected since it still has no definite course of action as of late. However, it is only a matter of time before the expected surge of economic data which usually occurs during the first week of a new month. The GBP/USD pair is expected to exhibit more consolidation until all the scheduled economic reports are released within the week, starting from the FOMC minutes this coming Wednesday.

For today’s session, the UK economy will be releasing its Manufacturing PMI data during the EU session, with the said reading expected to follow the recent slew of positive economic data from the region during these past few months. If this indeed happens, then the cable pair could possibly test its range highs yet again within today’s session.

The U.S. dollar against the Canadian dollar broke at 1.37 level during the Tuesday session. The oil market is not performing well which pulls the Canadian dollar along. The psychological level between 1.3.63 and 1.37 is strongly resistive as seen in the weekly chart which may not be favorable in selling the pair.

Besides oil concerns, the Canadian housing market is along being problematic particularly in Toronto and Vancouver area. There is a bubble market over the summer housing market with some of the shadow lenders starting to be affected as it drops to lows. This put the currency under pressure added to the oil market which complicates the situation further.
Pullbacks in the trend could open buying opportunities for the pair with the target of 1.40 level and may reach even up to 1.45 which is already expected for this summer.

However, if the pair breaks lower than the 1.36 handle, it is a sign to sell the pair but could be far from happening. Traders should catch on pullbacks which is would be a wise decision for this pair considering the oil market to trigger the pair to break lower.

The EURUSD remained steady on its position as it trades in a comparably tight range regardless of the massive data from the European region such as unemployment and PMI.

While the agreement made in Greece together with IMF and EMU is expected to maintain the pair in a higher stand.

While central bankers were on the news and brought challenges towards Mario Draghi in pursuing a dovish sentiment. The pair extends its consolidation on the first day of Europe’s long weekend and created a bull flag pattern which serves as the pause to stimulate.

Traders are anticipated to postpone its action prior to the U.S Non-Farm Payrolls scheduled on Friday or the fulfillment of second-round election in France preceding the major to reach its renewed highs.

Resistance lies at 1.0955 close on its previous week’s high while the support came in at 1.0843 next to the 10-day moving average.

The momentum kept a favorable stance since the MACD were printed in black along with an upward sloping path reflected in the histogram. This event had influenced to the advancing positive trajectory pointing to a greater exchange rate.

An upward trend of the Relative Strength Index is seen at 67 posted on the upper side of the neutral range.

The USD had a very positive trading session yesterday as a result of a positive economic dollar-related news. This then helped the dollar to eclipse the value of other currencies, and the EUR/USD pair was no exception. The currency pair had started out yesterday’s session on a somewhat slower pace as the market anticipated the release of important economic readings and had spent the majority of yesterday trading within its range highs. However, as the said financial data started coming in, the dollar was able to capitalize on this slew of good news and prop itself up higher, putting significant downward pressure on the currency pair which is now trading at just under 1.0900 points.

The first bit of good news came in the form of the ADP employment report, which surprisingly came out as expected, considering the fact that last month’s NFP report had failed to meet market expectations. Up next was the manufacturing report which also came out as positive, and this increased the USD’s value even more. However, by this point, the dollar was still somewhat at par with the value of the euro since the market chose to standby for the release of the FOMC meeting minutes. The said minutes were released halfway during the NY session, and since there was no accompanying press conference the market had no choice but to pick on the results of the minutes itself. The Fed did not give any indication of the schedule of the next rate hike, however it pointedly ignored the somewhat tame economic growth in the Q1, which the market took as a signal that the central bank might be preparing for another June rate hike. This triggered a dollar buy which pushed down the EUR/USD pair towards under 1.0900 points.

As of this point, the market is starting to price in a June rate hike although there are still no definite hints as of the moment. For today’s session, the market is expecting the release of the US unemployment claims data while Draghi will be speaking during the latter part of the NY session. There is little volatility expected today as the NFP report is due to be released tomorrow. The EUR/USD pair is expected to trade with bearish undertones for the rest of today’s sessions.

The GBP/USD pair was unable to move past its resistance level of 1.2950 points, causing the pair to retreat under this region where it is currently situated. The construction PMI data was released yesterday, and this particular bit of data had exceeded initial market expectations, adding up to the string of positive economic data coming in from Tuesday’s session. These series of data was able to help keep the sterling pound under its bid price and traded in a relatively steady trading manner during the first few hours of yesterday’s session.

The ADP employment report as well as the non-manufacturing data came in next, and these helped to further strengthen the stance of the USD as they both were able to meet expectations. The FOMC minutes were then released hereafter, wherein members of the central bank chose to snob the results of the Q1 GDP data, which was taken as a bullish mark for the USD since a large-scale buy was triggered during the NY session. The GBP/USD pair then plummeted through 1.2900 points and is now trading at 1.2875 points. The pair’s support levels are situated at 1.2850 points and since the NFP is expected to come in during yesterday’s session, the cable pair is expected to be able to maintain its hold on this particular region while it continues to consolidate.

For today’s session, we have the UK economy’s services PMI data as well as the US economy’s unemployment claims data, both of which are expected to induce volatility in the currency pair. The market is not expected to have much activity today as there is an influx of economic data scheduled for tomorrow.

The USD/JPY pair traded just within the reaches of its six-week high as the Fed refused to remove the possibility of a June rate hike, although the country’s economic growth weakened during the previous quarter. The Fed chose to maintain its current interest rates and had highlighted the positive outlook for the labor market during its two-day meeting, which could possibly be an indicator that at least two more interest rate hikes are scheduled to be carried out within the year. The USD/JPY pair closed down the previous trading session at 112.759 points after increasing by +0.69% or 0.0770 points.

The current Fed statement and the previous statement do not have any stark contrasts except for the central bank choosing to ignore the GDP data this time. The futures markets are now pricing in a 93% probability that the Fed will be implementing an interest rate hike this coming June. The next FOMC meeting is set on June 13-14 which will be followed by a press conference from Janet Yellen. Based from the Fed’s meeting minutes released yesterday, the Fed could possibly raise its interest rates by up to 25 basis points up to three times in a row before the year ends. If this indeed happens, then the US dollar would eventually become a very attractive and a very lucrative investment for market players.

For today’s session, market volatility will not be expected to to increase since the majority of market players will be saving their energies for the release of the NFP report this Friday.

The New Zealand dollar dropped during the Thursday session. The market has gone bearish because of the commodity market and the jobs data to be released. Traders should not forget that the price trend for the kiwi dollar would be influenced by the commodity market. The current trend could go higher reaching the 0.68 handle and short-term surge would mean selling opportunity. If the price breaks lower than the psychological level, the price would go downward instead. Traders should anticipate high volatility in the market but would be favorable for the U.S. dollar since the awaited jobs data to be released today.

The Future market also influences the currency although would not be directly influenced with any market. One could find a correlation between milk futures and the kiwi although it would not do much since the liquidity isn’t that high. The safe way is to compare with other commodities to determine how this currency will move and its overall tone in the market and wait for a short-term surge. It is possible to reverse the trend when it breaks higher than the 0.69 level and turn bullish as a follow through and climb higher.

The U.S. dollar against the Japanese yen had a high volatility during the Thursday session. The market tried to break higher than the 113 level but failed that makes it much safer to be patient and wait on the sidelines until the jobs data has been released. Moreover, the bullish tone will persist in the long term.

There is a significant support found close to 112.50 level which may be better to move upward although this will be unexpected. The 112 region will be massively supportive but it still might shift when the jobs data results is negative. The labor report is anticipated to give 185,000 jobs for the month of April which the market in now focused on.

It is most likely that this pair will be influenced by the jobs data and if the results are positive, the pair will follow through.if the price breaks higher than the 112 level will be a relevant move while a break at 113 level could further bring the price at 115 level which is the former peak that is in consolidation. More noise in the trend would also impact the trend and make it more difficult to trade during the day. If traders would sway with the ongoing volatility, there is a chance for long term trades. Traders could buy the pair multiple time as it moves towards the 115 handle.

There is not much pressure anymore for the USD/JPY pair as its reach new weekly top during the Thursday session. The uptrend halted at 112.75 which is the psychological level for yesterday and the following morning. Buyers tried to test the 113.00 level prior to the New York opening. The resistance level resides at 113.00 level while the support is found at 112.00 region. The 4-hour charts are showing positive signs. If the bulls were able to break higher than the 113.00 level in the next sessions, the next possible target would be at 113.50 level.

The New Zealand dollar against the U.S. dollar initially rallied for the past week. The 0.69 level was seen to give significant resistance which hints the possible continuation of the uptrend. However, this is not a good indication for commodities which highly influences the currency. On a good side, the crude oil surge for a while during the Friday session. Yet, the commodity market could remain subdued which would then decreased the demand for kiwi. It won’t take long that this pair would further decline. If the pair breakdown lower than the 0.6850 level, the next level would be at 0.67.

Short-term rallies for this pair opens more opportunities which will soon push forward. The pair hovers at 50% Fibonacci retracement level and it is anticipated to have a lot of noise down beloW. However, if the pair breaks down from the expected level, this implies that the pair is not strong enough.

On the other hand, if the pair breaks more than the 0.7030 level, the price could extend up to 0.73 handle or higher. The pair is much more directed to the go downward instead. Traders should look out for commodity market which will influence the currency in the next trading sessions and it may be difficult to go long for long-term in this pair.

The British pound paired with the Japanese yen rallied during the Tuesday session. The market reached the 147.50 level and tries to reach the 148 handle. There is still a lot of space to climb higher towards the next target of 150 handle. Later on, the 147 level could become a support level.

Amongst a basket of currencies, the Japanese yen sells off the most and sensitive to risk appetite as a whole. Traders should not forget the pair to be volatile and long-term deals is predominant in traders.

The market should also monitor the stock market which is performing well relative to indices such as the S&P 500. Although, traders should expect volatility as it climbs higher and it seems that there is sufficient buying pressure to push the price higher. Nevertheless, reversals open opportunities to gain for this pair, especially for yen related market. It may not be advisable to sell this for now with buyers leading the market. There is still risk appetite which could induce the pair to further go up.

The U.S. dollar against the Japanese yen rallied as it broke at 114 handle. This would most likely move higher towards the 115 level which has been the peak of the last consolidation region and it would not take that long before the market reaches it. It is anticipated for a reversal to occur from now and then which will serve as buying opportunities in the market, most especially that there is a tone of bullishness seen in the trend. Volatility fluctuations is also expected that determines the weakness of the yen.

Price reversals could turn into an opportunity for this pair especially since the Japanese yen performs well in the market. Although, It may not be favorable to go short in this pair. The 113.30 region is being strongly supportive but there is a lesser possibility to go low to this level. It wouldn’t take long for buyers to return.

If the price breaks higher than the 115 level, this could move towards 118 handle. Although, it needs more momentum from the traders to reach this level. Hence, it may not be good to sell this pair for now.

The U.S. dollar paired against the Canadian dollar started flat during the Tuesday session as the oil market being calm but not too long. It was reversed and directed downwards. Another factor is the Canadian building permits that brought movement following its negative reports.

On the other hand, the U.S. dollar surged against the Canadian dollar as it breaks over the 1.37 level. The Resistance level was retested at 1.37 region and the 1.3750 level is being strongly resistive that prevents the pair to climb higher. The market has been very bullish for a long term and it won’t take long before the market reaches the 1.38 handle. A few days ago, there has been a selloff of this pair and if this occurs again, the pair could further go up.

The pair will continue its downtrend from 1.3793 and the uptrend from 1.3641 is a form of consolidation in the downtrend. This could be followed by consolidation towards the next target of 1.3550 level. A break over the 1.3793 region could trigger the price to go up towards 1.3900.

Reversals could attract buyers in the lower channel especially towards the 1.37 handle which has been a resistance before. It is possible for this level to turn into support region for the pair. The long-term trend becomes bullish although the oil market has uncertainty.

The crude oil inventories are about to be released to say which would most likely affect the trend. Reversals could serve as buying opportunities for this pair although the greenback is more favored over the Canadian dollar. Concerns in Canadian housing would add more hesitancy to the interest of the market to Loonie.

The EUR/USD pair continues to exhibit an intermittent trading action, which has been the pair’s dominant price trend ever since the beginning of this week. The market had initially expected the currency pair to start off this week with a bang and consistently exhibit a positive trading stance throughout the week due to Macron’s recent victory in the French polls, but as of now the currency pair is on the backfoot as its bulls have decided to retreat and take out profits in order for them to purchase the EUR/USD pair lower as it continues its correction.

In addition to the EUR/USD pair’s weakness, the greenback has also been strengthening across the board as traders are now about to conclude their June rate hike pricing. All of these factors has caused the EUR/USD pair to exhibit corrections at under 1.0900 points. However, during the past two days, the currency pair has been either ranging and consolidating or exhibiting a choppy price action, which is an indication that the market is attempting to create its own base. The currency pair is expected to create a base for another bullish attempt as the after-effects of the most recent rate hike is now losing its relevance and the improvements in the EU economy is now starting to become more evident in the market.

For today’s session, there are no major news releases from the EU although the US economy will be releasing its unemployment claims and PPI data, although these are not expected to make a significant dent in the current status of the currency pair. The EUR/USD pair can be safely expected to remain its choppy action at the 1.0850 trading range throughout the day.

The Australian currency showed some interesting trading session and had an initial downturn corresponding with the actions of the New Zealand dollar. A bit of rally had started as we look forward to found further resistance within the 0.7380 handle.

The Aussie appeared to be caught off guard as of the moment because of the rally occurred in the gold markets along with the partial decline of the US dollar.

In case that the precious metal would reverse and drop, the AUD will continue to weaken as well.

The commodity currencies may not be so attractive at this time since some of them are quite falling considering the CAD and NZD to have a softer stance while the Norwegian Krona also appeared to be dull. Not to mention the Mexican peso which starts to be weak again.

In order to initiate the selling, exhaustion and near-term rallies are to be found that may allow for a successful break above the region 0.7425.

Moreover, the volatility would extend that will offer value for the greens in which seems favorable for us. In case that we create a gap under the lows once again, the market is projected to move near the 0.72 handle, en route 0.70.

The USD/CAD moves like from pillar to post last Friday and continuously grinding above 1.37 handle. Meanwhile, the oil markets appeared to be disorganized as of the moment. We are directly standing above the channel while a pullback is inessential, however, when this price movement occurred then a move to the lower area would likely follow. Possibly down to the region 1.35 and moving through the mark 1.3250. Contrarily, a break over the channel, particularly in the 1.38 handle, will cause the market to trail atop of the level 1.40. Mainly, the oil markets should be given much consideration as it extensively weighs to the Canadian dollar.

Moreover, the commodity-linked pair is expected to be choppy but it looks like that the oil is in action at this time. The housing market in Canada shows some uncertainties while concerns may arise since the history of the US housing bubble were still remembered clearly by many traders.

The markets should consider sustaining a volatile session, however, the general uptrend will continue to drive through the upside in the longer-term. It further allows the longer-term and steady traders to acquire gains on top of the 1.40 range.

It is recommended to seek for pullbacks which provide value upon getting the chance as the greenbacks continued to be favored by the North American currency.

The Cable decline within the week as it tested the bottom of the hammer in the past week. The range 1.2950 appeared to be resistive, moving near the 1.3 region. A break over the mentioned level will push the market around 1.3450, wherein a previous resistance was seen.
A cut through in that area would likely be bullish, however, there is a significant level of support found at 1.2750 range.

To be honest, it will be a tedious job to grind below just like breaking upwards. The short-term trading could possibly the simplest thing to accomplish since the market has high possibility to consolidate amid the two regions.

A move in the long-term is anticipated and a needs to break out within area to execute the trade. Meanwhile, a range bound short term is predicted as it will remain to take notice.
Moreover, a breakdown underneath 1.2750 will cause the market to continue to slide.

A significant amount of support can be found below, however, it would appear like the longer term downtrend resumption.

The British currency is currently surrounded by lots of dynamic strains, hence expect for a complex trend over here. In light of this, we decided to allow the market to take an action deliberately.

The EURUSD edged upwards amid Friday sessions as it cleared up the top of Wednesday and Thursday candles followed by the release of the less than stellar figures of United States. In light of this, the market would likely touch above the 1.10 region which the resistance.

A gap over the mentioned area indicates a bullish tone, probably moving towards the 1.13 range trailing to 1.15 eventually.

The market consolidated in the midst of 1.05 and 1.15 levels in the past years. We are currently located in middle of the trading range which is close to the “fair value” which results for a complex trading setting in the near future.

The back and forth trading in the near-term is highly anticipated for the next few sessions. While short-term charts will also lead forward since consolidation is required in the overall region.

A gap overhead the 1.10 area will trigger further purchasing interest. However, a break below the 1.0750 mark will drove to 1.05 handle.

The market is projected to be very volatile and uneasy to trade, mainly because of the concerns that the European Union are currently involved with the United Kingdom together with other nations.

Despite the results, it is vital to maintain your stop loss take, and take note that the market is somewhat aimless in the long-term.

The USD/JPY pair experienced a turnaround during yesterday’s trading session after a sudden high demand for high-risk assets manifested during the earlier parts of the Monday session. The JPY was initially boosted by flight-to-safety buys but immediately disappeared as market investors chose to shift their focus to the surge in US equity markets. The USD/JPY pair closed down yesterday’s session at 113.787 points after increasing by +0.41% or 0.464 points.

Investors were generally worried with regards to Trump’s unexpected firing of FBI Director James Comey, the cyber-attack which made headlines last Friday, and the ballistic missile launch from the DPRK. The currency pair then began to hit rock-bottom after traders were practically unresponsive to these recent developments. This price action from the USD/JPY shows that investors might have become somewhat oblivious to these said developments. In fact, the cyber-attack was able to benefit the market after tech giants such as Cisco posted gains following the said online attacks.

For today’s trading session, investors will be waiting for the release of industrial production data, mortgage delinquencies data, building permits, capacity utilization data, and housing starts data from the US economy. If this specific set of data comes out as a market disappointment, then the chance of the Fed implementing more rate hikes in the future might be lessened, although the June rate hike has been pretty much priced in by the market already. In any case, this could also cause the US dollar to drop further in value.

The EURUSD raise higher because of the support of a strong growth and below-than-expected data in the housing number of the United States which brought an impact towards the U.S Treasury yields, hence placing a downward pressure to the American dollar. The sales of US chain stores keep worsening that caused for the greens to move lower.

The Europe started to gain more confidence with hopes that the European Central Bank is going to remove the quantitative easing.

The pair climbed upwards reaching 0.9% near the mark 1.1080. The price was cut into the downtrend sloping line moving close to the support region 1.0990.

Further support is found alongside the 10-day moving average approaching the 1.0940 level. The target resistance can be spotted at 1.1299 touching its November peaks. Moreover, the momentum was positive since the moving average convergence divergence (MACD) histogram formed a crossover signal to buy. This is the result of the spread that crossed over the 9-day EMA of the spread.

The histogram shifted from negative to positive area indicating a buy signal. It also printed in the black along with an upward sloping trajectory and turns to a higher rate.

The sterling pound’s bulls experienced a very harrowing trading day yesterday after the GBP/USD pair was unable to make any significant progress even after all the other major currency pairs were able to take advantage of the greenback going on backfoot. The cable pair remained within a very limited trading range and was unable to even advance towards its range highs, much less surpass this particular range. Several geopolitical issues has caused the dollar to drop, however, the GBP/USD pair did not have enough fuel for it to actually gain from the dollar losses.

The US housing data fell short of initial market expectations, and this proved to be somewhat damaging for the interest rate bulls who had already priced in the possibility of a June rate hike from the Fed. However, the market was more affected by news that Trump had apparently leaked top-secret information to the Russian government straight from the Oval Office, in addition to reports that Trump has apparently been caught dipping his fingers into a certain continuing investigation. These series of events triggered a massive dollar selloff, and while other major currencies such as the EUR were able to make use of this particular development, the sterling pound barely moved from its original position. The GBP/USD pair only slightly advanced from 1.2900 points and is now placed at just under 1.2950 points and does not look like it could induce a rally anytime soon. This is an indicator of just how weak the currency pair as of the moment and it could only be a matter of time before things take a turn for the worse.

For today’s trading session, there are no expected releases coming from the UK economy although international geopolitical events could possibly dominate the market for today. However, the GBP/USD pair is not expected to exhibit that much volatility given its recent weakness, and the pair should start a rally soon in order to placate any risk of the pair’s current standing taking a turn for the worse.
