The Australian dollar closed higher than the U.S. dollar during Tuesday session. Investors responded to the raising concerns in U.S. with lower U.S. Treasury yields, feeble U.S. housing data and a lesser possibility for a Fed rate hike in June. The overall direction of the pair will depend on the Treasury yields. Traders reacted pessimistically to Westpac Consumer Sentiment dropping up to 1.1.%.

There are no major U.S. economic reports to be released today. Traders continuously keep an eye on problems with Trump regime and they have the chance to react to the most recent weekly inventories data of U.S. Energy Information Administration.

The main trend is directed downward as shown in the daily chart. The pair is trying to move higher from the .7329 low on May 9 although the momentum remains the same. To reverse the trend, traders need to impede the short-retracement zone between .7442 and .7469.
Traders should also look out for the resistance level as a strong resistance region is formed at .7454 with major 50% level. The closest support resides at .7384 key Fibonacci region followed by .7329 down below.

The current price level set at .7419 and stays between the resistance and support levels which means that traders have uncertainty and expected volatility in the market.

If buyers try to oppose the trend, the next psychological would be at .7443 and .7446 region then moves to .7449 and .7454 and will most likely gain momentum at .7454 towards the next target at .7469 level. The .7469 Fibonacci level at .7469 would be the turning point for the next downtrend towards .7501 angle.

Underneath, the initial support target would be at .7389 uptrend angle followed by a major Fibonacci level at .7384 and lastly towards the .7329 as the probable bottom support angle. However, if the market fails to attain this level, there is a high possibility for a breakout at .7359.

Until buyers return in the market and exceed the .7469 level, there will be least resistance and rallies will be fruitful in the market. This will affect the price trend whether it will be reversed or not. Currently, the market gives off a neutral stance.

The Australian currency experienced a volatile session yesterday due to an initial shot higher with gold. But decided to sell off as the market needs for another leg found at the 0.74 handle, the support was found but rebounded.

The market appeared to be slightly mixed-up as of the moment and attempted to estimate the risk of the political uncertainties in Washington DC.

Based on a longer-term perspective, the market needs to maintain a bullish attitude only when the gold markets engage in the rally. It remains to have lots of noise though, a smaller position would be better while the Aussie continued to accelerate.

Meanwhile, charts showed some activity of buying on the dips which could be a good idea in trading in the market.

The level below 0.74 must provide a massive support because a breakdown under this range will generate a negative signal. Consider the potential gap within the upward bias, so it is advisable to hold for small positions on near-term charts generating short-term gains.

In case that we cut through above the mark 0.75, it will favor for a longer-term position. In this point in time, riding the market would let you experience emotional highs and lows.

As indicated in the previous charts and sessions, making money is easy in both directions but the market is currently choppy. It does not offer any signs as of now, causing the participant to endure difficulty in driving the market.

The national currency of Britain climbed higher as the data of retail sales presented stronger figures beating expected result.

The level 1.30 contained some amount of psychological significance. A break out on top of it provides signs of bullishness. With that being said, the market is expected to move higher on a longer-term however the overall place appeared to be complex.

There is a likelihood that the market will trail upwards hitting the region above 1.3450.
The stronger statistics of the retail sales could be linked on some side of inflation because the figures and U.K suddenly gained greater strength.

We could still experience pullbacks occasionally and it should provide buying opportunities intended for longer-term traders.

A huge increase throughout the day indicates a bullish sign while trends could possibly break and when it happen, the market may need to take some time to rest.

The downtrend is over for the GBPUSD however, plenty of noise are needed to beat amidst the current range together with the mark 1.3450 which requires patience and diligence.

The USD/CAD pair continues to exhibit a very steady trading manner during the previous session and seems to be largely unaffected by the currently very high volatility levels in the market. In spite of the recent turmoil affecting the US government and a spike in oil prices, the loonie seems to be unaffected by this and remains trading on both sides of 1.3600 points in a very choppy price action with no indications of a possible change in direction.

The recent surge in oil prices has kept the USD/CAD pair buoyant, and this is why the currency pair has stayed within the reach of 1.3550 points. The pair’s consolidation is expected to continue until the next few days since oil prices have already increased in the short-term. Meanwhile, the greenback could possibly backfoot across the board since the possibility of a June Fed rate hike has dimmed somewhat. If this indeed happens, then the 1.3550 range will become a very critical region to surpass and until the USD/CAD pair goes past this range, then it can be safe to say that the pair’s uptick is most likely to remain in the short-term. Otherwise, the currency pair could possibly revert to its previous range and could resort to a bearish consolidating price action.

For today’s session, the Canadian economy will be releasing its CPI data and retail sales data, both of which are expected to induce volatility in the pair’s price action.

The New Zealand currency experienced a volatile session amid Friday trades as it broke on top of the 0.69 handle. A grasp to the level 0.6950 was highly resistive which is better than all the range for the previous weeks.

A break on top this region is considered significant looking forward through the top of 0.70 mark, this also allows the market to drive higher.

Moreover, the market would likely maintain its volatility and choppiness. The kiwi was highly sensitive against the risk appetite which appeared to be unpredictable at this moment. With that being said, the thought that the NZD will be one of the complicated currencies to trade is possible. The “risk on” sentiment has returned in the market favoring the profits for the buyers.

Moreover, the market will remain choppy and volatile for the next hours and the 0.6880 region below contains a massive support.

The “buy on the dips” will further extend, however, headwinds on top of it are within reach. In this case, the market has to provide lots of trading opportunities intended for the scalpers but the short-term traders will remain to draw attention towards this.

There will be some struggle that longer-term traders will experience, in order to search for a suitable position. Therefore, holding a trade for a lengthy period is difficult as there could probably some real size ongoing.

During the Friday session, the pair GBPUSD remarkably did well since an extreme and rapid price decline occurred on Thursday. While an uptrend is tested, however, a turnaround was carried out promptly.

As the traders calm down, the market eventually break out in the upside hitting the top of the 1.30 region. In the previous trades, a renewed highs were formed and the Britain’s currency would likely look forward through the 1.3450 area that has consolidated in the longer term.

A break on top of the range 1.30 seems significant and the flash crash happened on Thursday still not clear which brought fears to many people. Moreover, the uptrend line amid that sudden drop matters a lot and it appears that the 1.29 mark can be the acting basement of this market.

The choppiness was still expected to continue but the market may indicate a bullish attitude.

The pullback eyes some support within the level 1.30 but a breakout towards a fresh peak would trigger a buying behavior.

The GBP attempted to change its general trend in the upside which could go a long way throughout establishing trend confidence.1

In addition, the uptrend will continue since the moving averages drove to the upside and selling is not an option at all. While a move forward would pave the way for the “buy on the dips”.

The U.S. dollar against the Japanese yen broke in the upper than stabilize the currency pair during the Friday session. This indicates that the market had adjusted with the minimal risk this weekend which is a positive thing.The trading has been strong which is being monitored by traders and they try to bring the price higher than the 112.50 level. Although, as of the moment, the trend is currently in accumulation. If the market could break higher than the 112.50 level would give a bullish tone in the market and would move the price continue to 114 level. This would even go higher when the Federal reserve decided to bring the interest rates higher and this possibility of raising rates caused selling early this week.

The U.S. jobless claims declined which is one of the major directives of Federal reserve that would most likely impede the interest rate hike. Others would want to be dovish or totally forget about it but it is not plausible to do so as the U.S. has eased monetary for the past years and is not exemplifying expected results. On the other hand, the employment is being tight indicating the strengthening of the economy which would bring the interest rates higher as expected.

The USD/CAD pair has been exhibiting a very disappointing price action ever since it was able to test its range highs at 1.3800 points during the start of this month. The currency pair has been suffering from the repercussions brought about by the greenback’s weakness and the strength of the loonie which was mostly due to an oil price surge. This oil price increase was able to cover up the actual occurrences within the Canadian economy and has provided enough leverage for the loonie to advance, and this is why the USD/CAD pair has been consistently dropping value during the last two weeks.

As of the moment, the currency pair is now within a very critical region of 1.3500 points, where it continues to look very weak. The weakness of the greenback has been the dominant market trend as of the moment, with the dollar getting adversely affected by Trump’s political woes, which in turn has affected the US economy as well as its monetary policy. The market had initially priced in a rate hike this coming June, but with the recent slew of dismal events, it looks like the market’s players might have to put off this interest rate hike at least for now. In addition, the rising oil prices has helped the loonie to retain its positive image amidst Canadian banking concerns, wherein the majority of Canadian banks have been given the thumbs-down by ratings agencies. The loonie strength has also helped to offset the concerns surrounding the HCG and the housing sector.

For today’s session, there are no major news releases coming from both the US and the Canadian economy, although some Fed officials will be making statements today with regards to the US monetary policy. All these are expected to add downward pressure on the USD/CAD pair and cause the pair to test its support levels.

The EURUSD attempted to move through the higher region on Tuesday, however, failed to maintain its gain upon reaching the level 1.1268. When the profit taking started the pair was pushed beneath the 1.12 handle.

Meanwhile, the stronger report of GDP and sentiment data buoyed the EUR/USD and the yields turned up in Europe as relating to its American counterparts. Moreover, the PMI readings kept unchanged in the month of May, as the German nation lead the charge that reflects towards a strong growth.

The major pair touched the higher high as it eclipses the prior day high using 5 pips. The resistance is found at 1.1299 level close to November 8 highs and in case the level will be broken, it would lead to testing 1.1365 region near its August highs in 2016.

The support entered the mark 1.1603 around the 10-day moving average. Momentum is slow-moving, seeing the moving average convergence divergence (MACD) print in the black together with a descending trajectory that drives towards the consolidation.

The USDCAD experience volatility during Monday’s session and had an attempt to rally, however, it made a reversal plunging under the region 1.35. The pair is relative to the crude oil markets and received a significant support upon the opening, while the OPEC seems to move nearer the deal regarding production cuts.

Having said that, the greens decline versus its Canadian counterpart which is the proxy of currency traders against the oil markets.

The ability to break down around it will allow the market to reach the 1.34 handle. However, a cut through the top of 1.3550 area will touch above the range of 1.36. This range is significant for the longer-term charts, and a broke within that area enable the market to drive upwards.

The volatile market is expected to continue considering the current condition of the oil coupled with Canada’s housing that brought an impact as well.

Sellers have executed a significant action as well which could give a chance to break 1.3550. But there is no such opportunity to initiate a long move, except that the higher timeframes (daily or weekly charts) could obtain a longer-term signal

According to forecasts, rallies will resume and will be providing opportunities to sell towards a market that experienced a lower grind in the previous sessions. Lastly, a gapped in the upside has to be accompanied by the oil markets that were rolled over.

The Australian currency against the U.S. dollar broke above the 0.75 level but was also reversed soon after. If the price breaks lower than the 0.7450 region, the price would further decline. This is also similar for the long-term trades.

The gold market directly influences the pair including the risk appetite for these trades. However, it seems that the gold market is not performing well. The raw material trades from Australia supplied within Asia is also falling since there is low demand for copper and iron which are the fundamental trades of the country.

In a long-term trend, it seems that the market sustains the current trading condition. Its downtrend could attain up to 0.70 level for long-term. If the price breaks higher than the 0.7525 region, it could reach its way about the 0.7750 level for a longer term.

However, reaching the said level won’t be easy. Although, the market usually change position in a bullish pattern and makes it more complicated when the market worries. This is what anticipated to happen when the price soars that makes pullbacks not surprising anymore. The uptrend line is noticeable on the hourly chart and a break lower than the 0.7450 level would bring the price down with an increase in bearish pressure.

The USD/CAD pair has been projected to be highly dependent on the state of oil prices as well as the OPEC meeting held yesterday, and in fact, the loonie skyrocketed in value as the OPEC meeting concluded yesterday’s meeting on a somewhat dismal note as far as the markets were concerned.

The market had initially hoped that the OPEC members would approve an extension of the production cuts since the majority of them are expecting deeper production cuts in the future. However, what the OPEC members did was to extend the production cut deal for another 9 months, with both Iran and Libya given an approval to maintain its current status quo. This turned out to be a huge disappointment for the market in general, and this caused oil prices to drop after a large selloff occurred. This was then especially unfavorable for the Canadian dollar, particularly for the Canadian economy as its fate relies on oil prices. As of the moment, the USD/CAD pair has reverted by 80 pips as the loonie starts to drop in value. The currency pair was also propped up even more by the dollar strength and now the pair is back at its support-turned-resistance level of 1.3500 points. The market will now be monitoring how this pair closes down this week’s session since if it manages to close down at over 1.3500 points, then this is an indicator that the bulls have regained control of the pair and the USD/CAD could possibly be poised for more increases. On the other hand, if the pair closes down at under 1.3500 points, then this means that the bears are now dominating the pair and the market might have to brace themselves for more selling at least in the short-term.

The US economy will be releasing its durable goods data and its Preliminary GDP data within the day, although traders are advised to sit back and wait for the session to close down before making any significant moves.

The strength of the greenback has been the dominant market trend during the previous trading session. In addition, the bulls of the GBP/USD pair are also having a hard time with regards to keeping the value of the cable pair afloat, which is seen on how the bulls had repeatedly attempted and failed to break through 1.3030 points even though the USD has clearly dropped in value. This development shows just how the bears are slowly gaining the upper hand with regards to taking control of the cable pair.

But on the bright side, the drop in the cable pair’s value was not as much of a crash as initially expected since the pair’s drop has been somewhat slow and steady. But then again the corrections of the pair is now starting to get more significant, while its reversions are becoming more and more shallow, which is an indication that the pair’s bears are indeed taking over the currency pair. The GBP/USD pair was unable to even reach the 1.3000 range as the greenback starts to regain more strength due to the market re-pricing the interest rate hike next month.

For today’s trading session, the market is expecting the release of the Preliminary GDP data and the durable goods data from the US, while the British economy is not scheduled to have any economic releases for today. The GBP/USD pair is then expected to remain under pressure for the entirety of today’s trading session.

The Euro against the British pound had a very choppy trading during the Thursday session as the market is attempting to push the price higher which could eventually break later on. There are also some pullbacks seen in the short-term which supports the current trend and gather enough impetus and volume to reach higher levels. If the price breaks higher than the 0.8675 region, the current trend will move upward reaching the 0.88 level that is relevant for long-term as shown in the charts.

Those reversals would gain more appeal to the buyers as it closes near the 0.86 support level which was supportive in the past. There’s an option to wait for a breakout first to lift it higher which implies bullishness in the trend which is beneficial for buyers.

The market is choppy influenced by the two economies and commentaries from both countries bringing a lot of noise in the market. Yet, the trend remains resilient as it is directed upwards although there are pullbacks every now and then. If the price breaks lower than the 0.8550 region, the market is anticipated to roll over. This is most probably because of major events which are usually unexpectedly fast when it happen. Overall, the buyers seem to dominate the market.

The British pound paired against the Japanese yen declined during the Friday trading session following the release of election polls much tighter than expected in Britain. Everybody expects the political route the way forward when it comes to leaving the European Union still leaves some doubt in the minds of the people.

The pair is usually sensitive to risk appetite that worsens the selling pressure. As the price breaks through the 143 level, the price would decline much lower towards the 142 handle as the market reaches to the support below. If the price surges from here, this would open more selling opportunities.

Traders should monitor the global risk appetite including the stock market, futures market and the condition of the British government and its currency, as these would affect the pair. As of now, the pair is moving downtrend searching for a significant level at 1.2750.

If the pair is able to stay in the upper region, the current trend could be reversed to find support below. Alternately, the price could decline towards the next significant support at 140 handle. Buyer should look to the long-term charts before placing orders. Overall, the market will be highly volatile and traders might want to consider major pairs related to the British currency for a faster turn around.

The New Zealand dollar against the U.S. dollar has had a flat trading in early Friday but when the buyers returned, the price rose towards the 0.71 handle and above. Short-term pullbacks offer value in the market as the market tries to reach higher levels.

The 0.70 level gives off massively supportive until the price breaks lower which makes it complicated selling. Buyers will proceed with going long as the market is open climb higher although the pair is still involved with high risks. It is anticipated that the pair will most likely decline from here onwards that makes the pair more susceptible to risks.

There is a strong upward pressure for this pair and volatility would increase even more. The New Zealand dollar is highly sensitive to the overall commodity market that makes is important to monitor the commodity market not necessarily a certain commodity market.

There is high volatility in the market which will reflect in trading this pair. With the political concerns from the Washington, D.C., the pair is expected to be influenced despite its almost daily occurrence. Hence, traders should still be cautious that makes short-term trades more advisable to trade to make through the current problems concerning this pair.

The U.S. dollar against the Japanese yen declined during the Friday session. It reached the lowest level of 110.80. If it bounced back, this will signal a bullish trend but this would not be easy to attain as there is high-risk appetite especially for this pair. The 110 level gives off a massive support but is the pair breaks lower, the next level would be at 108 region at a quicker pace because there is a still remaining gap that has not been filled.

In the long-term, this pair will most likely go higher although it may take some time since the 112.50 is strongly resistive. A break higher than this region would be beneficial for scalpers to take advantage of bulls interested in the U.S. dollar.

Traders of this pair should monitor the S&P 500 index as this would have a big influence to the pair. If the index rises, this pair follows. Moreover, the chances for a Fed rate hike puts a bullish pressure for the pair. If it did not take place, it might be a problem for the pair although it is most likely that this would happen with its stature at stake.

Pullbacks every now and then offer long-term opportunities but for short-term, this gives off bearish volatility/ This could persist for some time especially with the major events concerning geopolitical problems occurring from Europe and the U.S.

Overall, the pair moves in an uptrend from 110.23 level and a decline from 112.13 will indicate a correction. It is expected to rise again following the correction towards the 113.50 level. The near-term resistance is found at 111.70 and a break to this level would mean a continuation of the uptrend. On the other hand, the support region is positioned at 110.80 and 110.23 and a break from these levels would push the price back again from 114.36 level.

It was a market holiday on several parts of the world yesterday, and the absence of market volatility due to the said holidays was felt throughout the market during the previous session as most of the major currency pairs consolidated and traded within a very limited range yesterday. EUR/USD traders had only one thing to look forward to during the duration of yesterday’s session, which is Draghi’s speech wherein he made his usual statements on the lessening of downward pressure on the EU economy, although this had little effect on the EUR/USD pair’s current standing.

What affected the value of the currency pair was the news that Greece is now prepared to abdicate the following bailout fund if the EU will still be unable to reach middle ground as far as the conditions were concerned. This then caused the EUR/USD pair to correct towards 1.1120 points during the latter part of yesterday’s session. As of the moment, the market is still experiencing very low liquidity levels as the Chinese market remains to be on a holiday, and as such, traders are advised to take all market movements today with a grain of salt. In addition, the market will also be experiencing month-end flows before this week comes to a close, and this is why traders should take it easy in order to prepare themselves for the onslaught of economic data later this week. The Fed rate hike in June is still not fully priced in, and unless the market gets some sort of conclusion with regards to the Fed’s next move, then it will be very hard to determine the short-term price actions of the EUR/USD pair. But the recent correction of the EUR/USD pair should be taken only as a mere correction instead of a full-on trend change as corrections are deemed as normal in every currency pair.

For today’s session, the market is expecting the release of Germany’s Preliminary CPI data, as well as the PCE data from the US economy. The PCE data will be closely watched as this will indicate whether the Fed will be indeed pushing through with its rate hike or otherwise and could possibly induce a lot of volatility into the market within the day.

In a sea of otherwise very inactive major currency pairs, the GBP/USD pair seems to be the only pair which has gained significant volatility during yesterday’s trading session. The cable pair shot up by over 40 pips in spite of a market holiday across several locations throughout the world such as the US, UK, and China. The lack of market activity yesterday gave the pair’s traders an opportunity to induce a bounce in the pair although it was unable to offset the 150-pip crash of the cable pair during the session last Friday. In spite of this recent reversal, the GBP/USD pair is expected to remain trading in a very weak manner as a lot of economic factors seem to be going against the sterling pound at least for the time being.

Members of the ruling political party in Scotland have recently outlined the possibility of a Scottish referendum if ever they get reinstated in the Scottish government. But then again there have been recent rumors swirling around with regards to the ongoing Brexit negotiations, specifically on how the negotiations will pan out once the snap elections in June come to a close. In addition, the results of the recent opinion polls are showing that Theresa May lacked the expected lead in the upcoming snap elections, which puts May in danger since anything less than a landslide victory for the UK PM will make this particular risk of hers in order to establish herself in the international scene a failure. The GBP/USD pair is also currently struggling to surpass 1.3030 points, and all of these factors have turned against the cable pair and has put a significant amount of downward pressure on the pair.

For today’s session, there are no expected releases from the UK economy although the US will be releasing its PCE data, which will be closely monitored by the market as this will be indicating whether the June rate hike will indeed push through or otherwise. If this data disappoints the market, then this will not bade well for the GBP/USD pair.

The USD/CAD pair remained in consolidation mode as the market lacked significant volatility due to market holidays in China, US, and the UK. The loonie remains trading under the very important trading range of 1.3500 points, mostly due to a steadying in oil prices in addition to a strong greenback value.

The currency pair broke through 1.3500 points last week after a surge in oil prices. Although the oil bulls were very disappointed with regards to the results of the recently-concluded OPEC meeting, the loonie received some well-needed pressure from this drop in oil prices, thereby triggering the USD/CAD pair to revert to 1.3500 points and closed down last week at just under this critical trading level. The CAD is also currently being propped up by a series of very positive data from the Canadian economy, with this economic improvement getting some acknowledgement from the Bank of Canada in its rate statement during the past week. In fact, the BoC has already decided to put its rates on hold instead of implementing a rate cut due to this consistent improvement in the country’s economic state, which could then lead to a possible rate hike if the country’s economy continues to be positive.

For today’s session, the US economy will be releasing its PCE data which is expected to clarify the country’s inflation status in addition to shedding some light on whether the Fed will be indeed implementing a rate hike next month. If the PCE comes out as negative, then the USD/CAD pair could possibly correct further towards 1.3400 points.
