USDCAD trading idea for the week of 06-Nov-2017

Technical & Fundamental Analysis USDCAD initially tried to rally, but 1.29 level proved to be resistive. Several attempts to sustain above 1.29 failed and the pair slided down later during the week. On Friday, the disappointing NFP report from USA and the improvement in the employment figures from Canada only helped the pair to drop further. Trading preference Due to the above factors, I prefer to sell this pair in the coming week. It seems like the pair will be drawn towards the up trendline shown in the above chart.

EURUSD trading idea for the week of 06-Nov-2017

Technical and Fundamental factors EURUSD has been falling after the head & shoulder pattern formed two weeks ago. Last week, even a disappointing NFP report from USA did not help this pair rally, but rather it looks set to fall much further, to fulfill the anticipated move of the head & shoulder. A dovish Draghi also helps this move. Trading preference The idea is to sell the pair when it breaks below the close of the last week’s candle. The target could be around 1.30 level. But a bounce up…

Even though The Cable tried to rally initially during the course of last week in anticipation of the interest rate hike, the actual hike sent the pair lower.

GBPUSD Trading idea for the week of 30-Oct-2017

During the course of last week GBPUSD rallied due to GDP figures beating the expectation. However, the move to 1.3250 was met with resistance which in turn led the pair to fall towards the uptrendline that we have been following for quite some time now. The trend line could offer support for this pair. However, if the pair falls, breaking through the trend line, it could go down towards 1.30 level. If the trend line does offer support, the pair could again move up towards the resistance again. Trading preference…

EURUSD trading idea for the week of 30-Oct-2017

EURUSD went up as the week started but then it broke down significantly. We can notice that the break to the downside came after a ‘head & shoulder’ pattern formation on theĀ  daily chart. Based on the move after the head & shoulder, the pair could drop further to the 1330 region, especially if Fibonacci 38.2 level is broken on its way. However, when we look at the weekly chart, this downward movement can be considered as a retrachment after such a parabolic upward move for most part of the…

USDCAD trading idea for the week of 23-Oct-2017

We can see that the Canadian Dollar has given up all it gained when Bank of Canada delivered as surprise interest rate hike in September. Technical Analysis The pair is currently at a resistance zone. A break above this zone will send the pair much higher. In fact it looks very much likely that it is going to happen. Bank of Canada is not so hawkish. Feds are Hawkish. This, coupled with the balance…

GBPUSD trading idea for the week of 23-Oct-2017

Technical Analysis GBPUSD fell down significantly but not enough to break the weekly up trend line. In fact the pair found support before touching the trendline. This makes us believe that the pair is in fact trying to build enough momentum to go higher to test the resistance of 1.3650. Bank of England is likely to raise interest rates. The Cable will likely to see continued bullish pressure. Trading Preference. Our preference is to buy this market until the uptrend is broken and also until 1.30 level is also broken….

The weekly up trend line shown in the chart and the psychological level of 1.30 have proven to be a strong support for GBPUSD pair and hence it bounced off significantly from that zone to the upside.

That areas can once again offer strong resistance. Therefore bounce back and forth between the up trend line and the resistance of 1.3650 could…
