United Overseas Bank is suggesting to book profit near 1.0600 psy level for short trades. The price is located below 100 SMA/200 SMA for the primary bearish market condition with the secondary ranging within 1.0461 support and 1.1494 resistance level for the breaking 1.0673 support from above to below for the bearish trend to be continuing. Psy level at 1.0600 is located far below 100 SMA/200 SMA in the bearish area of the chart between 1.0461 support and 1.0673 support levels but UOB is telling that this level will not be easy to be broken by the price, and it is very unlikely to be broken for this week for example.


If price will break 1.1494 resistance level so the local uptrend as the secondary market rally will be started within the primary bearish market condition.
If the price will break 1.0673 support so the bearish trend will be continuing up to 1.0600 psy level.
If not so the price will be ranging between the levels.

  • Recommendation for long: watch close price to break 1.1494 for possible buy trade
  • Recommendation to go short: watch close price to break 1.0673 support level for possible sell trade with 1.0600 as the target
  • Trading Summary: ranging bearish

Forex Weekly Outlook Nov. 23-27 (based on the article)

The dollar struggled after the meeting minutes but certainly recovered. US and UK GDP, US Consumer Confidence, Durable Goods Orders stand out . These are the main events on forex calendar. Here is an outlook on the highlights of this week.

Te Federal Reserve released the minutes of the Committee meeting held in October, leaving the door open for a rate hike announcement in December. Investors reacted by increasing the odds for a rate increase next month to 72%. Policy makers were confident that the US economy is strong enough to withstand a modest policy tightening and expect the central bank will succeed to balance between full employment and stable two percent inflation.

  1. German Ifo Business Climate: Tuesday, 9:00. The Volkswagen scandal hardly affected German business optimism in October. The index for German industry and trade inched down to 108.2 points from 108.5 points in September, posting the first drop since June this year. Nevertheless, business outlook continued to rise from 103.3 in September to 103.8 in October, the highest level since June last year. However, current conditions fell from 114.0 to 112.6. Business sentiment is expected to reach 108.3 this time.
  2. US GDP data: Tuesday, 13:30. According to the initial release, the US economy slowed down to an annualized growth rate of 1.5% in Q3 2015, after seeing 3.9% in Q2. In this release, which is the second one, the figure is expected to be upgrade to 2%, still mediocre, but looking better.
  3. US CB Consumer Confidence: Tuesday, 15:00.  U.S. consumer confidence worsened in October, deteriorated to a three-month low of 97.6. The reading dimmed prospects for a U.S. interest rate hike this year. Analysts expected the index to rise to 103.0 in October. The current conditions Index fell from 120.3 last month to 112.1 in October, while the outlook Index declined to 88.0 from 90.8 in September. U.S. consumer confidence is expected to rise to 99.3 in November.
  4. US Durable Goods Orders: Wednesday, 13:30.  Orders for long lasting products continued to weaken in September for the fourth time in five months with orders contracting more than expected, down 1.2% from minus 2.0% in August. Meanwhile core orders excluding transportation declined 0.4% after a downward revised 0.9% decline in August. Automobile orders edged up 1.8% reversing a similar sized decline in August. Analysts expect Durable goods orders to edge up 1.6% in October, while core orders are expected to rise by 0.5%.
  5. US Unemployment Claims: Wednesday, 13:30. The number of Americans filing initial claims for unemployment benefits declined last week by 5,000 to 271,000, indicating a strong labor market. Claims have remained below the 300,000 threshold for 37 consecutive weeks, the longest stretch in years. The four-week average of claims increased by 3000 to 270,750. Economists expect payrolls will increase by at least 200,000 in November, which will give the Federal Reserve confidence to raise its short-term interest rate at the Dec. 15-16 meeting. The number of jobless claims is expected to reach 273,000 this week.
  6. UK GDP data: Friday, 9:30. The first estimate of UK growth in Q2 showed a level of 0.5%. While somewhat lower than previous quarters, this growth rate still pleases policymakers. A confirmation of this level is expected in the second release.

Weekly Outlook for EUR/USD by Morgan Stanley (adapted from the article)

Morgan Stanley made a fundamental forecast for EUR/USD related to the price movement - they estimated for this pair to be in ranging bearish in the near future up to the year-end for example: "EUR is likely to remain an underperformer in the current environment. Monetary divergence between the ECB and the Fed should keep the currency under pressure. The main risk to our EUR view would be a selloff in risk into the first Fed hike. This would likely drive some repatriation and funding unwinds, which would support EUR given its funding status. Overall, we maintain our bearish view."


Let's evaluate this forecast from the technical point of view.
As we see from the chart above - weekly price is located below 100 period SMA (100 SMA) and 200 period SMA (200 SMA)  for the bearish breakdown: the price is trying to break 1.0600 psy support level from above to below for the bearish breakdown to be continuing. And the next nearest target with this situation is 1.0461 support level.

  • Recommendation for long: N/A
  • Recommendation to go short: watch D1 price to break 1.0600 support level for 1.0461 as the next bearish target.
  • Trading Summary: bearish

Strategists See EUR/USD at 1.04-1.05 Ahead of December ECB Meet (based on the article)

Jeremy Stretch of CIBC World Markets Inc:

  • "Since the October ECB statement the market has been increasingly fixated by presumptions of a deposit rate cut of at least 10bp, this being set against an extension in ECB balance sheet, beyond the current September ’16 end date."
  • "However, a report that the central bank may be considering a two-tier tiered system of charges for banks holding cash (similar to that utilised by the SNB), alongside presumptions of additional bond buying have encouraged a spike in the Euribor strip, a sharp widening in US-Bund spreads and an aggressive slide in the EUR."
  • "Although the references to prospective ECB policy action are merely a reflection of non-attributable sources, the immediate market reaction underlines a broad negative bias."
  • "Hence into the ECB meeting expect ’2015 lows at 1.0458 to remain in view." 


From the technical point of view - daily price is breaking 1.0616 support for the 1.0565 level as the next bearish target. According to forecasts made by strategists - the price will be ranging within 1.05/1.04 levels which means the following - the price will be located within the following key support/resistance levels:

  • 1.0565 level, and
  • 1.0461 level.


The strategy: watch close D1 price to break 1.0616 support level for possible sell trade with 1.0565 level as the next bearish target.
