Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (October 2 - 6, 2017)

Oct 1 2017, 03:53 AM (CDT) |

Here’s the market outlook for the week:



Dominant bias: Bearish

The market lost about 200 pips last week, went briefly below the support line at 1.1750 and then went above it, to close above the support line at 1.1800. There is already a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, and further downwards movement is possible as price targets the support lines at 1.1800, 1.1750 and 1.1700 this week. This means that the shallow rally that was seen on Thursday and Friday may turn out to be opportunities to go short at slightly higher prices. The outlook on EUR pairs is strongly bearish for October; so EUR would be seen falling against other major currencies.



Dominant bias: Bullish

The bias on USDCHF is bullish in the short-term; and the bullishness is even precarious. This week, it may be possible for this pair to retain its bullishness as EURUSD slides southwards. However, the bullishness of the market would face a challenge from another quarter, which is the expected rally in CHF. CHF may begin to gain strength versus other currencies within the next two weeks, and that may make it difficult for USDCHF to experience a smooth bullish run. However, USD would also gain serious stamina around the end of October – a factor that may help USDCHF to become a clear winner at the end of the month.   



Dominant bias: Bearish

GBPUSD was bullish in September, but the bearish correction that was witnessed throughout last week (at least a movement of 150 pips to the south) has resulted in a “sell” signal in the market. The outlook on GBP pairs is bearish for this week, and thus, long trades are not recommended for now. GBPUSD could reach the accumulation territories at 1.3350, 1.3300 and 1.3250 within the next several trading days.   



Dominant bias: Bullish

This trading instrument has gained at least 450 pips since September 11. The movement of the market would largely be determined by whatever happens to USD this month. A strong USD means price would continue going upwards, whether gradually or swiftly. On the other hand, a weak USD may cause a serious reversal on USDJPY as price goes downwards by at least 200 pips within the next few weeks.



Dominant bias: Bullish

This cross dropped southwards on Monday and Tuesday and then consolidated throughout the rest of the week. However, a closer look at the market reveals that bulls have subtly moved price in their favor, leading to an invalidation of recent bearish efforts. A movement above the supply zone at 134.00 would result in corroboration of the recent bullish bias; while a movement below the demand zone at 131.50 would result in a bearish bias.    



Dominant bias: Bullish

GBPJPY rose by 1,100 pips in September and got corrected on September 29, following the consolidation that took place in most part of last week. The correction was almost nothing when compared to the general bullish movement in that month. Price could continue to go upwards – but only in a limited way – owing to the expected weakness in GBP in October. This means that the market would go down by at least, 400 pips in October, thereby invalidating the current bullish bias.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:
