Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (August 20 - 24, 2018)

Aug 19 2018, 06:59 PM (+06) |

Here’s the market outlook for the week:



Dominant bias: Bearish

The market is bearish, and price went further downwards until it reached the support line at 1.1350. Further drop was rejected around the support level and a rally effort ensued. However, the rally effort was not serious enough to threaten the recent bearish outlook on the market. There is a need for price to go further upwards by another 200 pips before the bearish outlook can be rendered ineffectual.



Dominant bias: Neutral

The most probable direction for this pair is southwards, once a breakout occurs in the market. Right now, the situation remains unchanged. It is interesting that the bias on USDCHF remains neutral, just as it was last week. The neutrality in the market has been existing since June 2018. Normally, USDCHF should go upwards as EURUSD goes south, but the former has chosen to remain neutral as the latter goes south, hence showing the bulls’ apathy. Should EURUSD skyrocket (something that will eventually happen) there would be a smooth bearish movement on USDCHF.



Dominant bias: Bearish

Cable went slight downwards from Monday to Wednesday (in conjunction with the downtrend), and then consolidated for the rest of last week (also in the context of a downtrend). The market has shed over 400 pips this month, and there seems it has much more room to go southwards. Nonetheless, the more the market goes bearish, the higher the chances of a strong bullish reversal when it does occur.



Dominant bias: Bearish

In the medium-term, a bearish signal has been generated on this pair. Although the situation in the market is quite choppy, a closer look reveals that bears have upper hands right now, and thus, the market may be able to test the demand levels at 110.00, 109.50 and 109.00. But that achievement will require a very strong bearish movement in the market. Bulls are also waiting for an opportunity to effect a reversal, pronged by a favorable fundamental factor. 



Dominant bias: Bearish

The price moved sideways last week – in the context of a downtrend. Further bearish movement this week will result in a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market (which has already shown its existence). The outlook on JPY pairs is currently bearish but there is also a probability of a strong bullish breakout, which may become a threat to the existing Bearish Confirmation Pattern. Whatever the case may be, a strong movement will happen this week.



Dominant bias: Bearish

This cross has dropped over 640 pips this month. It only consolidated last week, while the outlook on the market remains bearish. GBP is very weak and JPY is fairly strong; thus the bearish journey will likely continue this week when a breakout does occur. The targets for bears are the demand zones at 140.50, 140.00 and 139.50, which may be exceeded with enough bearish pressure.
