Fundamental Analysis: German Ifo Business Climate Index

The German Information and Foschung (Ifo) Business Climate Index determines the business sentiment and conditions in the Euro-zone.
The reading is concluded from survey of about 7,000 businesses.
A higher than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the EUR, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the EUR.
Analysts forecast a reading of 93.90, down from 94.50.

---


Euro Dollar

The Euro broke both the support & resistance of yeserday’s report, before choosing the downward road reaching both suggested targets 1.4445 & 1.4405. With that, the long-term Fibonacci 50% support (1.4445) was broken, and we expect to see Fibonacci 61.8% at 1.4280, and we might see it before the weekend. Short-term resistance is at 1.4452, and breaking it is the key to reach and test the most important resistance for short-term 1.4504. The importance of this resistance comes from being Fibonacci 61.8% for the short-term, and staying below it, would indicate that the rising move from yesterday’s low is just a short-term correction, while breaking it would means it is bigger than that, and would target 1.4574 as a first stop on the road to higher targets. Short-term support is at 1.4405 and breaking it would indicate a continuation of the drop to 1.4354 first, and then the important 1.4280.

Support:
• 1.4405: the rising trend line from yesterday’s low on intraday charts.
• 1.4354: Aug 27th low.
• 1.4445: Fibonacci 61.8% for the long-term (the rise from 1.3737 to 1.5143).

Resistance:
• 1.4452: Fibonacci 38.2% for the short-term.
• 1.4504: Fibonacci 61.8% for the short-term, and the most important resistance.
• 1.4574: intraday resistance from yesterday.

USD/JPY

Dollar-Yen broke the resistance 89.72 and reached the first target 90.08 successfully. This continuation in rising was a result of breaking the falling trend line from 90.75. With this break, the Dollar has gained a technical advantage that should give it the strength to go on. But to keep this advantage, the price should hold above the broken trend line which is currently at 89.13. And before that, we have the short-term support at 89.87, breaking it is the key to a retest of the broken line, targeting 89.13, and if this one is broken we could see a sharp drop to the important Fibonacci support 87.87. On theother hand, the resistance 90.40 is resistance of the day, and breaking it will indicate ability to continue going up, targeting the well known 90.90 first, and then November 4th top 91.31.

Support:
• 89.87: short-term support.
• 89.13: the retest level of the broken trend line.
• 87.78: Fibonacci 50% for the whole move from 84.81 to 90.75.
ou
Resistance:
• 90.40: previous well known support/resistance area.
• 90.90: previous well known support/resistance area.
• 91.31: Nov 4th top.

Stocks finished lower Thursday after Greece received another credit downgrade and the dollar surged against the euro to its highest level since September. The greenback was also supported by the Federal Reserve's comments from the previous day, when the central bank left interest rates unchanged near zero and said economic weakness will persist.

Philip Isherwood, equities strategist at Evolution Strategies in London, said that Wall Street appeared to be headed for a modest rally, primarily on "an absence of bad news," with no significant market movers.

But trading could be volatile since Friday is also quadruple witching -- a day when stock index futures, stock index options, single stock futures and stock options all expire.

Isherwood added that the markets were "thinned out" and "pretty lifeless" ahead of the Christmas holiday, as many traders have closed their books for 2009.

"Most people have had their year, good and bad, and they're sitting on their hands," he said.

Euro Dollar

The Euro broke the support specified in Friday’s report 1.4346, and successfully reached the first target 1.4280. It looks from the channel drawn on the attached chart that 1.4410 is the limit the separates the continuation of the downtrend from its reversal, since it combines the top of the channel with the moving average SMA100. As long as the price is below this level, the downtrend will continue, looking for fresh lows below Friday’s low 1.4260. Short-term support is at 1.4303 and breaking it would increase confidence in the downtrend, and would target 1.4205 and then the bottom of the channel which is currently at 1.4140. A break of today’s most important resistance 1.4410 would cause a jump to 1.4502, and may be later to 1.4584.

Support:
• 1.4303: Thursday’s low.
• 1.4205: Aug 26th low.
• 1.4140: the bottom of the descending channel on the hourly chart.

Resistance:
• 1.4410: the most important resistance for today, which combines the top of the channel with the moving average SMA100.
• 1.4502: Dec 15th low.
• 1.4584: Dec 11th low.

---


USD/JPY

Dollar-Yen broke the specified resistance in Friday’s report 89.80, and successfully reached both targets 90.40 & 90.90 with amazing accuracy (Friday’s high 90.89). We see that the drop that followed to 90.22 is just a short-term correction, and that the advance will carry on after we are done with it to areas above 90.90. We build this opinion on our wave count for the short-term which shows that we are in wave 4 of 5 rising waves that started at 88.91 on Thursday. If our wave count turns out to be right, we will not break the support 89.86, the price will start rising breaking short-term resistance 90.46, and targeting 91.30 first, and may be 91.93 afterwards. If a surprise happens and we break 89.86 the suggested wave count will be invalid, and the price will drop targeting the rising trend line from 85.84 which is currently at 89.17, and may be 88.70.

Support:
• 89.86: Fibonacci 61.8% for wave 3 according to our short-term wave count.
• 89.17: the rising trend line from 85.84.
• 88.70: Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole move from 84.81 to 90.89.

Resistance:
• 90.46: the falling trend line from Friday’s top on intraday charts.
• 91.30: Nov 4th high.
• 91.93: Sep 3rd low.

Free webinar on Forexpros - Mapping Out the Banking System & Foreign Exchange Dealing Process, Part II

Expert: Dan Cook
When: Tue, Dec 29, 2009, 11:00 EST

In the second installment of the Webinar ‘Mapping Out the Banking System & Foreign Exchange Dealing Process’, Dan Cook will take a deeper dive into the Foreign Exchange Market. Cook will start by discussing the interbank system and how it differs in form and functionality to the centralized exchange models used for trading stocks and commodities. From there, he will focus on broker-level dealing and discuss how retail brokers, whether ECN's or Dealing Desk models, make money.
Cook will also take an inside look at dealing desks and speak frankly about the roles and responsibilities of a retail dealing desk, which will include an overview of how brokers hedge currency exposure. The goal of this Webinar is to help traders understand the nuances of the Forex market by shedding light on many of the aspects of currency trading that have previously been shrouded in mystery.

Fundamental Analysis: Monetary Policy Committee

It gives a picture of economic conditions in the UK.
It also records the votes of the individual members of the Committee
If the BoE is hawkish about the inflationary outlook, it should be taken as positive/bullish for the GBP.

Euro Dollar

The Euro broke the support specified in yesterday’s report 1.4303, but it stopped half way between the support & the target, and settled for closing on Friday’s low 1.4260, as yesterday’s low was 1.4264. It looks from the channel drawn on the attached chart that 1.4357 is the limit the separates the continuation of the downtrend from its reversal, since it combines the top of the channel with the moving average SMA100. As long as the price is below this level, the downtrend will continue, looking for fresh lows below Friday’s low 1.4260. Short-term support is at 1.4260 and breaking it would increase confidence in the downtrend, and would target 1.4176 and then the bottom of the channel which is currently at 1.4085. A break of today’s most important resistance 1.4357 would cause a jump to 1.4502, and may be later to 1.4596.

Support:
• 1.4260: Friday’s low.
• 1.4176: Sep 1st low.
• 1.4085: the bottom of the descending channel on the hourly chart.

Resistance:
• 1.4357: the most important resistance for today, which combines the top of the channel with the moving average SMA100.
• 1.4502: Dec 15th low.
• 1.4596: Fibonacci 38.2% for the whole drop from 1.5139 to 1.4260.

---


USD/JPY

Exactly as we have expected, the drop to 90.22 was just a short-term corrective drop, and the price resumed rising short after, to areas above 90.90 as we said in yesterday’s report. Dollar-Yen broke the specified resistance in yesterday’s report 90.46 and successfully reached the first suggested target 91.30. But, has trouble started for this rising move? We can see on the attached chart that the price hardly reached any area above the moving average SMA100, and stopped close to the trend line. Thus, we expect the Dollar to settle for the previously harvested gains, and to start going down from the current levels. Short-term resistance is 91.30, and breaking it would target 91.93 first, and then the important 92.31. But what is expected is the opposite of that: the resistance should hold, and the price should start dropping toward short-term support 90.99, and if we break it we will head towards 90.32 and then 89.50.

Support:
• 90.99: intraday support.
• 90.32: previous important intraday top.
• 89.50: Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole move from 88.91 to 91.46.

Resistance:
• 91.30: Nov 4th high.
• 91.93: Sep 3rd low.
• 92.31: Oct 27th high.

Analysts forecast a reading of 1.00%, up from the previous reading of -1.30%.

Euro Dollar

The Euro broke the support specified in yesterday’s report 1.4260, but it stopped half way between the support & the target, as yesterday’s low was 1.4216. It looks from the channel drawn on the attached chart that 1.4298 is the limit the separates the continuation of the downtrend from its reversal, since it combines the top of the channel with the moving average SMA100. As long as the price is below this level, the downtrend will continue, looking for fresh lows below Friday’s low 1.4260. Short-term support is at 1.4238 and breaking it would increase confidence in the downtrend, and would target 1.4153 and then the bottom of the channel which is currently at 1.4030. A break of today’s most important resistance 1.4298 would cause a jump to 1.4446, and then to 1.4502, and later to Fibonacci 38.2% for the medium-term 1.4596.

Support:
• 1.4238: Fibonacci 38.2% for the micro-term.
• 1.4153: Jul 2nd high.
• 1.4030: the bottom of the descending channel on the hourly chart, and Aug 18th low.

Resistance:
• 1.4298: the most important resistance for today, which combines the top of the channel with the moving average SMA100.
• 1.4446: Aug 5th high.
• 1.4502: Dec 15th low.

---


USD/JPY

In opposition to our expectations, Dollar-Yen broke 91.30, penetrating through the moving average SMA100, and breaking the top of the channel that we introduced. This break, even though it is in an opposite direction of our short-term technical outlook, should not be ignored. The price is invited to show strength against the resistance 91.78 (currently trading pips below it), and if broken, a test of the area that caught our attention 92.31-92.52 will be only a matter of time. And if this area is broken, the Dollar will take off, towards March 19th low 93.53. On the other hand, if the price fails to create a sustained break of 91.78, a drop towards 90.90 where the moving average SMA100 is waiting, will follow. And if this level is broken, the price will drop towards the important 90.03, and if broken we are to see 89.55.

Support:
• 90.90: intraday support.
• 90.03: Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole move from 88.91 to 91.85.
• 89.55: previous important intraday low.

Resistance:
• 91.78: Jul 8th low.
• 92.31-92.52: resistance area created between Oct 27th & Sep 21st tops.
• 93.53: Mar 19h low.

Euro Dollar

The Euro broke the resistance specified in yesterday’s report 1.4298, but it stopped half way between the support & the target, as the high in the past 24 hours was 1.4365, a few pips below short term resistance 1.4371. This morning the price came back close to this resistance that we consider as resistance of the day, and breaking it would confirm the upward direction that started by breaking the descending channel. Short-term support is at 1.4238 and breaking it is not expected after the radical change in the technical outlook that happened after breaking 1.4298. But if it happens it would target 1.4153 and then 1.4030. A break of today’s most important resistance 1.4371 would cause a jump to 1.4502, and later to Fibonacci 38.2% for the medium-term 1.4596.

Support:
• 1.4238: Fibonacci 38.2% for the micro-term.
• 1.4153: Jul 2nd high.
• 1.4030: the bottom of the descending channel on the hourly chart, and Aug 18th low.

Resistance:
• 1.4371: Monday’s high, and the resistance that the price tried to break twice in the past 24 hours.
• 1.4502: Dec 15th low.
• 1.4596: Fibonacci 38.2% for the medium term (for the whole move from 1.5139 to 1.4260).

---


USD/JPY

Though it tried more than once, the Dollar-Yen could not break 91.78, and that is why there is almost no change to the technical outlook we spoke about yesterday. The price is invited to show strength against the resistance 91.78 (currently trading pips below it), and if broken, a test of the area that caught our attention 92.31-92.52 will be only a matter of time. And if this area is broken, the Dollar will take off, towards March 19th low 93.53. On the other hand, if the price fails to create a sustained break of 91.78, a drop towards 91.06 where the moving average SMA100 & the retest level for the broken channel are waiting, will follow. And if this level is broken, the price will drop towards the important 90.03, and if broken we are to see 89.55.

Support:
• 91.06: the moving average SMA100 on the hourly chart, and the retest level for the broken channel.
• 90.03: Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole move from 88.91 to 91.85.
• 89.55: previous important intraday low.

Resistance:
• 91.78: Jul 8th low.
• 92.31-92.52: resistance area created between Oct 27th & Sep 21st tops.
• 93.53: Mar 19h low.

Expert: Dan Cook
When: Tue, Dec 29, 2009, 11:00 EST

In the second installment of the Webinar ‘Mapping Out the Banking System & Foreign Exchange Dealing Process’, Dan Cook will take a deeper dive into the Foreign Exchange Market.

From there, he will focus on broker-level dealing and discuss how retail brokers, whether ECN's or Dealing Desk models, make money.

Fundamental Analysis: CB Consumer Confidence

The CB Consumer Confidence report will be published tomorrow (Dec 29).
The Consumer Confidence measures the level of consumer confidence in economic activity. It is a leading indicator as it can predict the consumer spending, which is a major part in the total economic activity. Higher readings point to higher consumer optimism.
A higher than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the USD, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the USD.
Analysts predict a reading of 49.50, down from the previous 53.00.

Euro Dollar

The Euro broke the resistance specified in Thursday’s report 1.4371, but settled for a test of the resistance 1.4410 (Thursday’s high was 1.4416). The technical outlook is still gaining positivity after breaking the falling channel that we talked about all last week, but failure at 1.4410 might be the first signal indicating a new wave of weakness. And since it is an important resistance, we will consider as resistance of the day, and breaking it would confirm the upward direction that started by breaking the descending channel. Short-term support is Thursday’s resistance 1.4371, and if this important level is broken, this pair would target the important 1.4292 (important for short term and may be medium term as well), and then 1.4233. A break of today’s most important resistance 1.4410 would cause a jump to 1.4502, and later to Fibonacci 38.2% for the medium-term 1.4596.

Support:
• 1.4371: Thursday’s resistance that became today’s short term support.
• 1.4292: Fibonacci 61.8% short term and it is close to the rising trend line from last week’s low on intraday charts.
• 1.4233: important intraday support from last week.

Resistance:
• 1.4410: previous well known resistance, price stopped near it on Thursday.
• 1.4502: Dec 15th low.
• 1.4596: Fibonacci 38.2% for the medium term (for the whole move from 1.5139 to 1.4260).

---


USD/JPY

Though it tried more than once, the Dollar-Yen could not break 91.78, and that is why there is almost no change to the technical outlook we spoke about yesterday. The price is invited to show strength against the resistance 91.78 (currently trading pips below it), and if broken, a test of the area that caught our attention 92.31-92.52 will be only a matter of time. And if this area is broken, the Dollar will take off, towards March 19th low 93.53. On the other hand, if the price fails to create a sustained break of 91.78, a drop towards 90.90 where the retest level for the broken channel is waiting, will follow. And if this level is broken, the price will drop towards the important 90.03, and if broken we are to see 89.55.

Support:
• 90.90: the retest level for the broken channel.
• 90.03: Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole move from 88.91 to 91.85.
• 89.55: previous important intraday low.

Resistance:
• 91.78: Jul 8th low.
• 92.31-92.52: resistance area created between Oct 27th & Sep 21st tops.
• 93.53: Mar 19h low.

Euro Dollar

The Euro came back to test the resistance specified in yesterday’s report 1.4410 for the second time, after testing it previously on Thursday. But it stopped accurately at this level (yesterday’s high was 1.4412). The technical outlook is still gaining positivity after breaking the falling channel that we talked about all last week, but failure at 1.4410 might be the first signal indicating a new wave of weakness. And since it is an important resistance, we will consider as resistance of the day, and breaking it would confirm the upward direction that started by breaking the descending channel. Short-term support is Thursday’s resistance 1.4371, and if this important level is broken, this pair would target the important 1.4292 (important for short term and may be medium term as well), and then 1.4233. A break of today’s most important resistance 1.4410 would cause a jump to 1.4502, and later to Fibonacci 38.2% for the medium-term 1.4596.

Support:
• 1.4371: Thursday’s resistance that became today’s short term support.
• 1.4292: Fibonacci 61.8% short term and it is close to the rising trend line from last week’s low on intraday charts.
• 1.4233: important intraday support from last week.

Resistance:
• 1.4410: previous well known resistance, price stopped near it twice on Thursday, and then again yesterday.
• 1.4502: Dec 15th low.
• 1.4596: Fibonacci 38.2% for the medium term (for the whole move from 1.5139 to 1.4260).

---


USD/JPY

Though it tried more than once, the Dollar-Yen could not break 91.78, and that is why there is almost no change to the technical outlook we spoke about yesterday. The price is invited to show strength against the resistance 91.78 (the high until the moment of preparing the report is 91.76), and if broken, a test of the area that caught our attention 92.31-92.52 will be only a matter of time. And if this area is broken, the Dollar will take off, towards March 19th low 93.53. On the other hand, if the price fails to create a sustained break of 91.78, a drop towards 90.90 where the rising trend line from 84.81, will follow. And if this level is broken, the price will drop towards the important 90.03, and if broken we are to see 89.55.

Support:
• 90.90: the rising trend line from 84.81.
• 90.03: Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole move from 88.91 to 91.85.
• 89.55: previous important intraday low.

Resistance:
• 91.78: Jul 8th low.
• 92.31-92.52: resistance area created between Oct 27th & Sep 21st tops.
• 93.53: Mar 19h low.

Fundamental Analysis: Chicago PMI

The Chicago PMI will be published tomorrow (Dec 31).
The Chicago Purchasing Managers Index determines the economic health of the manufacturing sector in Chicago region.
Any reading above 50 indicates expansion of the manufacturing sector, while a reading below 50 indicates contraction.
The Chicago PMI can be of some help in forecasting the US ISM and usually has an impressive correlation with it.
A higher than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the USD, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the USD.
Analysts predict a reading of 56.10, up from the previous 55.20.

---


Euro Dollar

Although it surpassed 1.4410, the Euro was unable to maintain its gains, and gave them up, returning to 1.43, where there is a critical support at 1.4308. The price reached 1.4304 before bouncing more than 50 pips until this moment. The importance of 1.4308 is that it is Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole rise from 1.4216 to yesterday’s top at 1.4456, and breaking it would mean that the price will come back to test the falling channel that was broken last week (which is currently below 1.41) at a later time. But the targets for the upcoming hours for this break will be 1.4233 & 1.4176. Short-term resistance is at 1.4380, and breaking it would mean that the technical outlook for the short-term would be positive and the targets for this break would be 1.4480 & 1.4536.

Support:
• 1.4308: Fibonacci 61.8% for the rise from 1.4216 to 1.4456.
• 1.4233: important intraday support from last week.
• 1.4176: Sep 1st low.

Resistance:
• 1.4380: Fibonacci 50% for the short-term & a well known previous resistance.
• 1.4480: Oct 2nd low.
• 1.4536: a well known previous support/resistance area.

---


USD/JPY

Finally, the Dollar-Yen is trading above 91.78! As it reached 92 this morning, and stopped at 92.24. Thus, we think that a test of the area that caught our attention 92.31-92.52 is only a matter of time. And if this area is broken, the Dollar will take off, towards March 19th low 93.53, with a possibility to stop at 93.08, where there is a resistance that cannot be ignored. On the other hand, if the price fails to capitalize on the break of 91.78, a drop towards 91.12 where the rising trend line from 84.81, will follow. And if this level is broken, the price will drop towards the important 90.18, and if broken we are to see 89.55.

Support:
• 91.12: the rising trend line from 84.81.
• 90.18: Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole move from 88.91 to 92.24.
• 89.55: previous important intraday low.

Resistance:
• 92.31-92.52: resistance area created between Oct 27th & Sep 21st tops.
• 93.08: Jul 22nd low.
• 93.53: Mar 19h low.

Euro Dollar

The Euro fluctuated, breaking 1.4308 first, then breaking 1.4380 and flying above 1.44. And as we can see, the price is currently trading inside a falling channel on the hourly chart, with the top of the channel at 1.4449. Thus, we will consider this level as resistance of the day. If broken, we will see 1.45 since the targets for such a break are 1.4502 first, and then the first Fibonacci retracement level for medium-term (38.2%) at 1.4596. To keep a positive outlook for the short-term, it is preferred that we don’t break the support 1.4391, holding above it would improve the chances for more upside movement. But if it is broken, we expect the price to drop to 1.4330 first, and then test the support area that was obvious during the second half of this month 1.4264.

Support:
• 1.4391: Fibonacci 61.8% for the short-term.
• 1.4330: important intraday support from Tuesday.
• 1.4264: Dec 21st low.

Resistance:
• 1.4449: the top of the falling channel on the hourly chart.
• 1.4502: Oct 2nd low.
• 1.4596: Fibonacci 38.2% for the medium-term.

---


USD/JPY

The Dollar-Yen broke the resistance area that caught our attention 92.31-92.52. Short-term resistance is provided by the falling trend line from yesterday’s high, currently at 92.50. And if this area is broken, the Dollar will take off, towards March 19th low 93.53, with a possibility to stop at 93.08, where there is a resistance that cannot be ignored. On the other hand, if the price fails to capitalize on the break of 92.31-92.52, a drop towards 91.30 where the rising trend line from 84.81, will follow. And if this level is broken, the price will drop towards the important 90.30, the most important support for the time being.

Support:
• 91.85: the moving average SMA100 on the hourly chart.
• 91.30: the rising trend line from 84.81.
• 90.38: Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole move from 88.91 to 92.24.

Resistance:
• 92.50: the falling trend line from yesterday’s high.
• 93.08: Jul 22nd low.
• 93.53: Mar 19h low.

Fundamental Analysis: German Unemployment Change

The EUR will be affected by the publication of the German Unemployment Change tomorrow (Jan 5).
The German Unemployment Change measures the change in the number of unemployed people in Germany. A rise trend indicates weakness in the labor market and has a negative affect on consumer spending and therefore on the economic growth.
A higher than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the EUR, while lower than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the EUR.
Analysts predict a reading of 7.00K, up from the previous 6.00K.

---


Euro Dollar

As we have expected, the Euro tested the important 1.4449, stopping 10 pips below it, and started a drop that broke the support specified in Thursday’s report 1.4391, and reached both suggested targets 1.4330 & 1.4264 successfully. Stopping only 8 pips below 1.4264 before bouncing back to 1.43 assures its importance, and we will consider it support of the day, and the borderline between a continuation of the drop from 1.4439, or a bounce to the upside. If this important support is taken, we expect the Euro to drop on the first trading day of the New Year towards 1.4176 & 1.4103. But if it holds, a test of short term resistance 1.4308 will follow, and breaking it would lead to a correction of Thursday’s big fall, ideally targeting 1.4369, and if broken we will jump to 1.4424-1.4456, a resistance area that is full of short term resistance levels.

Support:
• 1.4264: Dec 21st low.
• 1.4176: Sep 1st low.
• 1.4103: Aug 10th low.

Resistance:
• 1.4308: intraday top.
• 1.4369: short term Fibonacci 61.8%.
• 1.4424-1.4456: a resistance area that is full of important levels for short term.

---


USD/JPY

The Dollar-Yen broke the resistance specified in the last report of last year 92.50, and successfully reached the suggested target 93.08 with astonishing accuracy (Thursday’s high was 93.09). Short-term resistance is provided by this level. And if this area is broken, the Dollar will take off, towards March 19th low 93.53 and then 94.05. This uptrend is protected by the rising trend line from 84.81 which is currently at 91.54 and the SMA100 as well. On the other hand, if the price fails to break of 93.08, a drop towards short-term support 92.35 will follow. And if broken, we will target 91.54 where there is the rising trend line from 84.81. And if this level is broken, the price will drop towards the important 90.51, the most important support for the time being.

Support:
• 92.35: Fibonacci 61.8% for the short term.
• 91.54: the rising trend line from 84.81.
• 90.51: Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole move from 88.91 to 93.09.

Resistance:
• 93.08: Thursday’s high.
• 93.53: Mar 19h low.
• 94.05: Aug 28th low.

Fundamental Analysis: FOMC Meeting Minutes

Traders of the USD await the publication of the FOMC Meeting Minutes tomorrow (Jan 6).
The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) Meeting Minutes are a detailed record of the committee's interest rate meeting held about two weeks earlier. The minutes provide detailed insights regarding the FOMC's stance on monetary policy, so Currency traders carefully comb them for clues regarding future interest rate shifts.

Euro Dollar

The support 1.4264 survived yesterday, causing the Euro to rise. It broke the resistance specified in yesterday’s report 1.4308, and reached both targets 1.4369 & the 1.4424-1.4457 successfully. But with this rise, we got closer to an important resistance, provided by the rising trend line from 1.4410, which is illustrated on the attached chart, and is currently at 1.4485. This line could provide a chance to reverse the short term direction after yesterday’s rise. So, 1.4485 will be resistance of the day, and breaking it would indicate a continuation in the uptrend with the next set of targets at 1.4569 & 1.4678, the first & second main Fibonacci retracement levels for the medium term (The 38.2% & 50%). But, if 1.4485 could reverse the direction, the price will drop to the support at 1.4454, and if broken a correction for the whole up-move from 1.4256 will be initiated, which will ideally target 1.4369, and may be later 1.4303.

Support:
• 1.4454: support level on the hourly chart.
• 1.4369: Fibonacci 50% for the rise from 1.4256.
• 1.4303: support level on the hourly chart.

Resistance:
• 1.4485: the rising trend line from 1.4410 on the hourly chart.
• 1.4569: Fibonacci 38.2% for the whole drop from 1.5139 to 1.4216.
• 1.4678: Fibonacci 50% for the whole drop from 1.5139 to 1.4216.

---


USD/JPY

At the moment of preparing this report, the Dollar-Yen is approaching 91.60, the rising trend line from 84.81. This point could be critical not just for the short term but for the medium term as well, since breaking it would indicate the termination of the rising trend line from 84.81, which will have a huge effect on the technical outlook for the medium term. If this line is broken, we will fall to the important 90.55, which is also another important support for the short term, and maybe we will see 89.58 after that. On the other hand, if the line survives this test, a short term rise will be initiated, challenging short term resistance at 91.97, and breaking this level would lead to a correction to the drop from 93.20 (and may be to more than that), targeting the important 92.59, and once its broken we will be looking forward to the long awaited 93.53.

Support:
• 91.60: the rising trend line from 84.81.
• 90.55: Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole move from 88.91 to 93.20.
• 89.58: Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole move from 87.35 to 93.20.

Resistance:
• 91.97: intraday resistance.
• 92.59: Fibonacci 61.8% for the short term.
• 93.53: Mar 19h low.

Fundamental Analysis: Interest Rate Decision

The Bank of England (BOE) decision on short term interest rate is due to be published tomorrow (Jan 7). The decision on where to set interest rates depends mostly on growth outlook and inflation. The primary objective of the central bank is to achieve price stability. High interest rates attract foreigners looking for the best "risk-free" return on their money, which can dramatically increases demand for the nation's currency.
A higher than expected rate is positive/bullish for the GBP, while a lower than expected rate is negative/bearish for the GBP.
Analysts predict that the rate will remain at 0.50%.

Euro Dollar

With astonishing accuracy, the Euro stopped at the suggested reversal point 1.4485 (yesterday’s high was 1.4482), and exactly as we expected, started a big drop that reached 200 pips, passing by and breaking the support 1.4454, and reaching both suggested targets 1.4369 & 1.4303 successfully. And with coming back to areas below 1.43, we once again assure the importance of 1.4264, and we will consider it support of the day, and the borderline between a continuation of the drop from 1.4482, or a bounce to the upside. If this important support is taken, we expect the Euro to drop on the first trading day of the New Year towards 1.4176 & 1.4103. But if it holds, a test of short term resistance 1.4327 will follow, and breaking it would lead to a correction of yesterday’s big fall, ideally targeting 1.4406, and if broken we will jump to 1.4485, which reversed the upside activity, and caused yesterday’s drop.

Support:
• 1.4264: Dec 21st low.
• 1.4176: Sep 1st low.
• 1.4103: Aug 10th low.

Resistance:
• 1.4327: Fibonacci 61.8% for the micro term.
• 1.4569: Fibonacci 61.8% for the short term.
• 1.4485: the resistance that caused yesterday’s reversal.

USD/JPY

Dollar-Yen broke the trend lien rising from 84.81, but the drop that followed was limited, before going back above the line. This behavior recommends caution, the price should trade below certain levels to maintain any importance for this break. Short-term resistance is 92.45, and the support is at 91.75. . If this support is broken, we will fall to the important 90.55, which is also another important support for the short term, and maybe we will see 89.58 after that. On the other hand, if the price holds above this support, a short term rise will be initiated, challenging short term resistance at 92.45, and breaking this level would lead to a correction to the drop from 93.20 (and may be to more than that), targeting 93.08, and once its broken we will be looking forward to the long awaited 93.53.

Support:
• 91.75: the rising trend line from yesterday’s low on intraday charts.
• 90.55: Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole move from 88.91 to 93.20.
• 89.58: Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole move from 87.35 to 93.20.

Resistance:
• 92.45: short-term Fibonacci 61.8% resistance.
• 93.08: previous support/resistance area.
• 93.53: Mar 19h low.

The monthly changes and the revisions in payrolls can be quite volatile.

Euro Dollar

The Euro broke the resistance 1.4327 and reached our first suggested target 1.4406 successfully. But after reaching 1.4445 it came back to falling, as it is trading now around 1.4360. And with coming back to these areas, we once again assure the importance of 1.4264, and we will consider it the borderline between a continuation of the drop from 1.4482, or a bounce to the upside. But before it we should place our attention on 1.4344, and if broken a test of the important 1.4264 will be underway. If this important support is taken, we expect the Euro to drop towards 1.4176. But if it holds, a test of short term resistance 1.4394 will follow, and breaking it would lead to a rising move targeting 1.4485, which reversed the upside activity, and caused Tuesday’s drop, and later 1.4584.

Support:
• 1.4344: Fibonacci 61.8% for the short term.
• 1.4264: Dec 21st low.
• 1.4176: Sep 1st low.

Resistance:
• 1.4394: the falling trend line from yesterday’s high on intraday charts.
• 1.4485: the resistance that caused Tuesday’s reversal.
• 1.4584: Dec 11th low.

USD/JPY

As we said yesterday, Dollar-Yen broke the trend line rising from 84.81, but the drop that followed was limited, before going back above the line. This behavior recommends caution, since going back above the broken line stripped a lot of importance for this break. Short-term resistance is 93.08, and the support is at 92.24 . If this support is broken, we will fall to 91.51, and then the important 90.55, which is also another important support for the short term. On the other hand, if the price holds above this support, a short term rise will be initiated, challenging short term resistance at 93.08, and breaking this level would at least lead to challenge the top93.20, targeting the long awaited 93.53, and if this important resistance is broken, we will target 94.05.

Support:
• 92.24: the rising trend line from 84.81
• 91.51: obvious resistance area on the hourly chart.
• 90.55: Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole move from 88.91 to 93.20.

Resistance:
• 93.08: previous support/resistance area.
• 93.53: Mar 19h low.
• 94.05: Aug 28th high.
