Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (August 6 - 10, 2018)

EURUSD

 

Dominant bias: Bearish

 

As the beginning of last week, the pair saw a considerable increase throughout its first and second days of trading. Price later dropped below the resistance line at 1.1600, closing below it (and that signified a drop of more than 170 pips from last week’s high). This month, the outlook on EUR pairs is bullish, which means EUR would rise against most major currencies, thereby reversing the current bearish bias on the market. However, EUR may not be able to rally versus JPY.

 

USDCHF

 

Dominant bias: Neutral

 

The market has been moving sideways since June – hence the current neutral outlook. Price has been moving between the resistance level at 1.0050 and the support level at 0.9850, at least on a long-term basis. For the neutral bias to end, price would need to move out of these boundaries, and that is expected to create a directional bias. However, it may take several trading days (even a few weeks), for a strong, directional movement to occur. This is because volatility in the markets would be generally low this month, save in certain cases.

 

GBPUSD

 

Dominant bias: Bearish

 

The bias on GBPUSD is bearish and it would continue to be bearish, at least for this week. Price ranged from Monday to Wednesday, and then dropped further southwards on Thursday and Friday. The drop may continue this week, as price targets the accumulation territories at 1.2950 and 1.2900 (which may even be exceeded). A considerable amount of volatility will be witnessed on GBP pairs, while volatility will be low on most other pairs. 

 

USDJPY

 

Dominant bias: Bullish

 

The situation on this trading instrument is tricky. It is bullish in the long-term, but neutral in the short-term. The bullish bias will soon change to a bearish bias (while the short-term neutrality will evaporate), because the outlook on JPY pairs is strong bearish for this week, and for the whole month of August. In fact, price is expected to shed a minimum of 300 pips this month, reaching the demand levels of 110.00, 100.00 and 109.00.

 

EURJPY

 

Dominant bias: Bearish

 

The market initially went upwards, reaching the supply zone at 131.00. Nonetheless, further upwards movement is rejected at that supply zone as price slid downwards by roughly 240 pips, closing near the demand zone at 128.50 on Friday. Since there is Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, further downwards movement is anticipated this week, which would enable price to reach the demand zones at 128.50, 128.00 and 127.50.  

 

GBPJPY

 

Dominant bias: Bearish

 

There is a “sell” signal in the market. Price first went upwards by 150 pips last week, reaching the supply zone at 147.00. It even moved slightly above that supply zone before dropping by 240 pips; hence the “sell” signal. Given the weakness of GBP, and the bearish outlook on JPY pairs, the most probable movement this week, is downwards. The demand zones at 144.50, 144.00 and 143.50 would easily be reached.

 

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

 

“Trading in itself is a thrilling activity, and many non-traders never have a chance to experience that level of excitement.” – Andy Jordan
