Trading the News: ISM Non-Manufacturing (based on the article)

==========

Crude Oil M5: bearish breakdown reversal. The price broke 200 SMA/100 SMA to below to be reversed from the primary bullish to the primary bearish market condition. The price was bounced from 44.61 support level for the ranging bearish within 45.14 resistance and 44.61 levels waiting for the primary bearish trend to be continuing.

Crude Oil Forecast: daily bullish reversal, weekly bear market rally  (based on the article)


"The Support Zone in focus after Thursday’s blast-off is the Wednesday low at $43.20. Wednesday's low is above the next level of support by ~$0.70 barrel at $42.48, which is the April 26 low that printed before pushing up to $46.75 to close the month. Below $42.48, there could be a quick drop to the 200-DMA, which would take a strong move lower down to ~$40/bbl. Given the significance of the Intermarket factors that have shifted since Oil broke above $40/ 200-DMA, only a move below there would change my bullish model."

The month of May doesn’t appear to be providing the bullish support for WTI Crude Oil that prior months have. At least, this hasn’t played out within the opening range or first week of trading in May. A strong US Dollar and As markets await non-farm payrolls on Friday, a few news developments provided a strong bid in WTI & Brent Oil (CFD...

Trading the News: U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls (based on the article)

What’s Expected:


Why Is This Event Important:

With the U.S. economy approaching ‘full-employment,’ a further improvement in the labor market paired with signs of stronger wage growth may put increased pressure on the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) to raise the benchmark interest rate at the next quarterly meeting in June as the central bank risks falling behind the curve.

Nevertheless, waning business confidence along with the slowdown in household consumption may prompt U.S. firms to scale back on hiring, and a dismal employment report may drag on the U.S. dollar as market participants push out bets for higher borrowing-costs.

How To Trade This Event Risk

Bullish USD Trade: NFP Expands 200K+, Jobless Rate Narrows

  • Need red, five-minute candle following the NFP print to consider a short trade on EUR/USD.
  • If market reaction favors a bullish dollar trade, sell EUR/USD with two separate position.
  • Set stop at the near-by swing high/reasonable distance from entry; look for at least 1:1 risk-to-reward.
  • Move stop to entry on remaining position once initial target is hit; set reasonable limit.
Bearish USD Trade: U.S Employment Report Falls Short of Market Expectations
  • Need green, five-minute candle to favor a long EUR/USD trade.
  • Implement same setup as the bullish dollar trade, just in the opposite direction.

EUR: Gentle Downtrend; AUD: New Targets - Credit Agricole (based on the article)

EUR:


  • "Once again we revise our forecasts for EUR to the upside to account for the recent very disappointing US data, the persistent dovish shift in the Fed’s outlook and the change in the reaction function of the ECB."
  • "While we expect the Fed to resume its tightening cycle later this year, we believe that the shift in the ECB's focus away from trying to cheapen EUR and towards boosting domestic demand through the Eurozone lending channel is here to stay. Our new projections still see EUR/USD on a gentle downtrend, mainly because we still expect the Fed to deliver a total of four rate hikes this and next year."

AUD:


  • "The RBA surprised markets with a 25bp rate cut this month, putting an end to the AUD rally. From current levels, we see limited scope for further AUD/USD upside given AUD long positions are now at extended levels (as indicated by our G10 positioning index – Longs in commodity currencies starting to look stretched); moreover, sentiment towards the USD is already quite bearish."
  • "We retain our bearish view on AUD/USD supported by diverging monetary policies and the arguments stated above. We forecast AUD/USD to maintain a downward trajectory over the next year, reaching 0.70 in Q217."

Week Ahead: Dollar Index Technical Analysis - daily ranging bearish, weekly ranging near reversal; what's next? (based on the article)


  • "The USD is stuck at the bottom of the so-called ‘dollar smile’, which links its path to the performance of the US and global economy as well as the risk sentiment of investors."
  • "We therefore expect USD to appreciate again against G10 commodity currencies as investors start questioning the Fed's ability to fall further behind the curve and the sustainability of the commodity-price rally in the presence of persistent downside risks to the global recovery. EUR and JPY should also remain more resilient against this background."
  • "Among the key events next week will be the BoE’s May inflation report. Investors will want to know whether the MPC sees the latest economic slowdown as temporary, driven by Brexit fears, or persistent and thus likely to affect the policy outlook. With the EU referendum approaching, the MPC should stress the asymmetric risks to the outlook. This coupled with more evidence that the support for Brexit remains unabated should keep GBP on the defensive across the board."

Daily price is located below SMA with period 100 (100 SMA) and SMA with the period 200 (200 SMA) for the bearish market condition: the price is ranging within 91.92 support level and 94.81 resistance level with RSI indicator estimating the ranging bearish trend to be continuing in the near future. Bullish reversal resistance level is 96.40, and if the price breaks this level to above so the reversal of the price movement to the primary bullish market condition will be started.


  • If the price will break 94.81 resistance level so we may see the local uptrend as the bear market rally.
  • If price will break 91.92 support so the bearish trend will be continuing.
  • If not so the price will be ranging within the levels.

Weekly price is on secondary correction within the primary bullish trend: the price is testing 93.01 support level together with 100 SMA to below on close weekly bar for the secondary correction to be continuing and with 82.51 as the next bearish reversal target. But if the price breaks 100.51 resistance to above on close weekly bar so the primary bullish trend will be continuing, otherwise - ranging near reversal levels.
