The Australian Dollar now has the dubious honour of being the worst-performing G10 currency so far this month, in the leadup to its federal elections on May 18.
Today, I have for you three pairs with Japanese Yen. This pair is considered as a safe haven asset, so in theory, should gain, when the sentiment on the market is bearish.
Global risk sentiment turned positive on Friday afternoon as mixed trade data from China eased concerns over slowing global growth. With investors back in the mood for riskier assets, the Japanese Yen which is considered as a safe-haven currency tumbled across the board.
Trading on the market recently is pretty tough. The price is not moving in trends, often changes direction and creates many false breakouts.
USDJPY’s pullback from 109.10-20 is less likely to signal the pair’s weakness unless a sustained drop beneath three-week-old upward slanting trend-line, at 108.40 now, takes place on the four-hour chart. If the pair slip under the 108.40, the 107.70, the 107.00 and the 106.70 support-levels may gain sellers’ attention. Meanwhile, clear break of 109.20 enables the pair to aim for the 109.50 and the 110.00 resistances. In case prices manage to extend its up-moves past-110.00, the 110.25-30 seems crucial to watch as it holds the gate for the pair’s rally to 110. ...
AUDUSD needs to close beyond 50-day & 100-day SMA confluence-region of 0.7195-80 in order to aim for 0.7240 and the 0.7300 resistances; however, the 0.7330-40 area, comprising 200-day SMA & nine-month old descending trend-line, can restrict the pair’s upside past-0.7300. In case prices continue rallying past-0.7340, the 0.7400, the 0.7440 & the 0.7485 may flash on Bulls’ radars to target. Meanwhile, failure to offer a D1 close above 0.7195 could drag the pair back to 0.7150 and then 0.7075 prior to challenging the 0.7015-10 support-zone. ...
The major support according to the daily chart was the May 29, 2018 main bottom at 108.114. This chart showed that sellers had a clean shot at 104.600, which makes me wonder if it was actually a “flash crash”, or a well-played strategy to break the Dollar/Yen.
Although USDJPY’s U-turn from 100-day SMA & support-line of short-term symmetrical triangle helped it cross 50-day SMA, the triangle-resistance, at 114.00, could challenge the pair’s strength. Given the buyers’ ability to surpass 114.00 barrier on a daily closing basis, the 114.55 and the 115.00 might entertain them before pleasing with 61.8% FE level of 115.30. On the contrary, 50-day SMA level of 113.00 and the 112.55 can offer immediate supports to the pair ahead of highlighting 112.35-30 support-confluence for one more time. If at all prices slid beneath 112. ...
Early-month risk-on moves recently helped the AUD to recover some of its latest losses and AUDUSD is no exception to this as it crossed 0.7145-40 region; however, the pair needs to sustain the breakout in order to aim for 0.7200 and the 0.7235-40 resistance-area. Given the quote continue rising past-0.7240, the 0.7260 & 0.7300 are likely following numbers to appear on the Bulls’ radar to target. If at all prices fail to hold their strength and slide beneath 0.7140, the 0.7120 & 0.7100 can come-back on the chart. Assuming the pair’s extended downturn below 0.7100, the 0. ...
It’s early to talk about the strengthening of the AUD because up to now, there are no crucial fundamental factors that may become drivers for the Australian currency. Let’s go through all the factors that can be a market mover for the Australian Dollar.
The new week starts for us with the analysis of the USDJPY, where we do have a nice bullish setup. In addition to that, USDJPY drew a bullish price formation – Inverse Head and Shoulders pattern (yellow).
With the 114.50-75 horizontal-region and overbought RSI restricting the USDJPY’s further upside, chances of the pair’s pullback to 113.35 and then to the 112.60 are quite high. However, the 112.15-10 and the 111.30-15 support-confluence, comprising 100-day SMA & upward slanting TL, could challenge the quote’s declines past-113.35. In case prices refrain to respect the 111.15 mark, the 200-day SMA level of 109.80 may gain Bears’ attention. On the upside, a D1 close beyond 114.75 can quickly flash 115.00 on the chart, breaking which 115.50 & 116. ...
In this introduction, we will define the types of currency pairs and cover some of the basics you’ll need to know before you begin trading the ‘exotics’.
Investing.com - The dollar fell against its rivals Monday, on fears of an escalation in the U.S.-China trade war, while a stronger pound and euro also weighed on sentiment.
AUDUSD’s recovery from 0.7080 region may find it hard to prevail for long as not only 0.7235-40 horizontal-area but the descending TL figure of 0.7265 could also challenge the Aussie buyers. If the pair manage to surpass 0.7265 trend-line barrier, the 0.7320 and the 0.7355 can come back on the chart whereas 0.7370 and the 0.7410 might please the Bulls afterwards. Alternatively, the 0.7165 and the 0.7130 can offer immediate supports to the pair during its pullback before highlighting the 0.7080 mark for sellers. In case the quote continue declining past-0.7080, the 61.8% FE level of 0. ...
EURUSD still cannot decide if they want to go up or down. The major neckline is still a support so we do not have a sell signal but in the same time, the line connecting the top of the head and the right shoulder is also intact. For a proper signal, we need to wait for the breakout.
The last week was very eventful for the USDJPY. Apart from the technical analysis, positive sentiment was strengthened here by the rise of the global exchanges. In the last week, USDJPY broke three important resistances.
AUDJPY used the inverse head and shoulders pattern to come back above the long-term resistance on the 80.7. The sentiment is back to the positive one. All Fibonacci levels are additionally strengthened by the recent support/resistance levels.
Yesterday and today, EURAUD is climbing higher but just to test the super important horizontal resistance. EURAUD met a combination of three crucial elements. The second one is the horizontal resistance, which previously, for many weeks was a support and the third one is the mid-term down trendline.
Notwithstanding the AUDUSD’s sustained trading above a fortnight long ascending trend-line, the pair can’t be termed strong as immediate downward slanting TL, at 0.7455, followed by the 0.7480-85 horizontal-region, still stand tall to challenge the buyers. In case the pair surpasses the 0.7485, the 0.7500 may offer an intermediate halt during its rally to 0.7555 resistance-level. On the contrary, dip below the 0.7395 support-line can drag prices to the 0.7360 and the 0.7320 numbers. Though. pair’s additional weakness past-0.7320 might not respect the July-month low around 0. ...
According to different estimates, there is a risk now for Japan to get involved in the trade wars between the US and China. As of yet, there are no compelling reasons to be afraid of it, but in theory, such possibility really exists.
