Fundamental Weekly Forecasts for EUR/USD, AUD/USD, USD/JPY, USD/CNH and GOLD (based on the article)

EUR/USD - "It would be highly unlikely to see the European Central Bank make any moves that may prove to be too provocative given that portions of the recently triggered package are still on their way to being filtered through the economy, and, frankly, the ECB may be nearing a dearth of ammunition, at least in the near-term. This may simply be a case where the bank sees the risks of any ‘big actions’ far outweighing the potential pay-offs."


AUD/USD - "The near-term outlook for AUD/USD remains mired as the pair preserves the downward trending channel carried over from the previous month, but a series of positive developments out of Australia may threaten the bearish pattern as the pair carves as series of higher highs & lows coming into September. In turn, a break of trendline resistance along with a break/close back above former support around 0.7650 (78.6% retracement) may generate a larger advance in the exchange rate, with the next topside target coming in around 0.7740 (78.6% retracement)."


USD/JPY - "Next week, the finalized print for 2Q GDP for the Japanese economy is expected to see an upward revision to a seasonally adjusted 0.4% q/q up from the preliminary reading of 0.2%. The GDP print will be combined with the Balance of Payments reading that will help traders see how the export-dependent economy is faring in an environment of a rather strong JPY."


USD/CNH - "Although the PBOC’s monetary policy is moderate in general, their next move may depend on key economic indicators. The soaring housing prices, mortgages, and real estate companies’ borrowing have elevated the risk of asset price bubbles.The July New Yuan Loans read shows that mortgages have become the sole driver to bank credit.The August prints to be released next week could give us some clues on the development of the housing sector. The PBOC as well as other financial regulators may respond accordingly to the figures as curbing price bubbles has been set as one primary target of the country.


GOLD (XAU/USD) - "The broader outlook remains unchanged from last week and from a technical standpoint, heading into September trade seasonal tendencies favor strength after next week so we’ll be looking for a low as the monthly opening range takes shape. Price turned higher this week from confluence support where the 50-line of the descending median-line formation converges on the May high and the 100% extension at 1303. Friday’s rally failed just ahead of the July low-day reversal close at 1330 and the risk remains lower near-term while below this mark.

The European economy continues to flail, that much can be widely agreed upon without further debate. Unemployment throughout the bloc remains stubbornly above the 10% threshold, and this week, more evidence contributed to the mounting case that the March ‘bazooka’ of stimulus triggered by the ECB has yet to show any additional signs of promise...

USD/JPY Intra-Day Fundamentals: Bank of Japan Gov Kuroda Speaks and 54 pips range price movement

2016-09-05 02:30 GMT | [JPY - BoJ Gov Kuroda Speaks]

[JPY - BoJ Gov Kuroda Speaks] = Speech at the Kyodo News event, in Tokyo.

==========

From forexlive article: Bank of Japan Governor Kuroda speaking at a ''Kisaragi-kai'' forum sponsored by Kyodo News

  • Have no specific idea now on how comprehensive assessment will affect direction of monetary policy
  • I am not too pessimistic on outlook of China's economy
  • Expect China's economy to achieve fairly stable growth due in part to govt stimulus steps
  • Won't comment on what level can be the limit in terms of deepening negative rates
  • See room to deepen negative rates further, must consider costs and benefits of doing so when guiding monetary policy
  • Japan's jobless rate is near full employment but tightening job market has yet to sufficiently push up wages, prices
  • Conditions for wages, prices to rise are falling in place so expect underlying price trend to improve steadily ahead

GBP/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: U.K. Services PMI and 53 pips range price movement

2016-09-05 08:30 GMT | [GBP - Services PMI]

if actual > forecast (or previous one) = good for currency (for GBP in our case)

[GBP - Services PMI] = Level of a diffusion index based on surveyed purchasing managers in the services industry.

==========

From theguardian article: Biggest ever monthly rise as UK service sector PMI hits 52.9

"The services sector PMI may have come in ahead of expectations at 52.9, resulting in a healthy figure of 53.2 for the economy as a whole, but the blue-chip stock index remains unimpressed. Having started the day flat, the FTSE 100 is has edged down by around 0.2% to 6,880. However, the pound is on the up, reaching a seven-week high of $1.3375 against the dollar."

Dean Turner, economist at UBS Wealth Management, said:

Today’s improvements are in line with the string of robust economic figures we’ve seen throughout August. But, while there is some reason for optimism today, it’s still too early to conclude that the UK has escaped the Brexit vote unscathed.

We still expect growth to slow to zero in the second half of the year, although the current quarter may be a little stronger than anticipated, followed by greater weakness in the fourth quarter.

Now that we’ve seen some resilience in the UK economy, many are questioning whether last month’s Monetary Policy Committee decision was the right one. We believe the Bank of England has taken the correct course of action and expect them to ease further before the year is out.

AUD/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: Reserve Bank of Australia Cash Rate and 20 pips range price movement

if actual > forecast (or previous one) = good for currency (for AUD in our case)

[AUD - Cash Rate] = Interest rate charged on overnight loans between financial intermediaries.

From Financial Times article: RBA keeps benchmark rate on hold

"The Reserve Bank of Australia has kept its benchmark rate on hold at 1.5 per cent, as Glenn Stevens presides over his final policy meeting as governor."

From the RBA’s statement:

Low interest rates have been supporting domestic demand and the lower exchange rate since 2013 is helping the traded sector. Financial institutions are in a position to lend for worthwhile purposes. These factors are all assisting the economy to make the necessary economic adjustments, though an appreciating exchange rate could complicate this.

Supervisory measures have strengthened lending standards in the housing market. Separately, a number of lenders are also taking a more cautious attitude to lending in certain segments. The best available information suggests that dwelling prices overall have risen moderately over the past year and growth in lending for housing purposes has slowed. Considerable supply of apartments is scheduled to come on stream over the next couple of years, particularly in the eastern capital cities.

What’s Wrong With EUR/USD? (adapted from the article)

  • H4 price broke 200 SMA to be reversed to the bearish market condition. The price is testing 1.1122 support level for the bearish trend to be continuing.
  • "No matter what the economic data is, the EURUSD is having a hard time falling. Actually, it is being bought on each and every dip and people wonder if it isn’t a wise decision to actually buy the pair and hold the position instead of shorting it. The EURUSD outlook looks bearish, though."


  • Daily price is located within 100 SMA/200 SMAL the price is testing 200 SMA together with 1.1122 support level to below to be reversed to the primary ebarish market condition.
  • "EURUSD Bearish on Bigger Time Frames. The reason why the EURUSD is not falling (yet!) is not that the pair is bullish or something, but because the pattern that broke lower is on a big time frame: the daily chart."


Thus, seems support level at 1.1122 is the key level for the pair to be reversed to the primary bearish trend.

S&P 500 Unshortable ? (based on the article)

S&P 500 increased by 0.45% for the month, 0.08% for a week, and it was decreased by 0.06% for the day. H4 intra-day price broke 100-day SMA/200-day SMA levels for the bullish market condition. The price is on testing with 2,185.75 resistance level for the bullish trend to be continuing. Alternative, if the price breaks 2,172.75 support ot below so the bearish trend will be resumed.


  • "The S&P badly needs a correction to reset sentiment. Our portfolio wants more volatility and sentiment extremes."
  • "Oil has now rallied hard out of its probable half-cycle low. Energy stocks are holding up exceptionally well."
  • "Gold on Friday printed lower lows than in July, which may be a sign that a decline is around the corner. However gold should rally more than oil if the S&P corrects."

S&P 500 daily is on primary bullish market condition located above 100 SMA/200 SMA reversal area for the ranging within the narrow support/resistance levels:

  • 2,185.75 resistance with 2,191.25 target to re-enter, and
  • 2,154.50 support level located in the beginning of the secondary correction to be started.


The most likely scenarioo for the movement for September is the following: daily  price will be on ranging within 2,191/2,154.

With the jobs number last Friday coming up lower than expected but still rallying the market, I'm a bit wary of getting long this market at this present moment in time. Gold (NYSEARCA:GLD) rallied on the numbers release as well as oil so both of these commodities may now have printed daily cycle lows or a half cycle low in the case of oil...
