Dollar Index Daily Technicals: ranging within 100-day SMA/200-day SMA for direction; 95.95 is the key resistance for the bullish reversal (based on the article)

Daily price is located below 200 SMA and above 100 SMA for the ranging bearish market condition.

"The clearest section of recent DXY price action is the 3 wave rally from the May low. That alone suggests that the path of least resistance is lower. Of course, weakness from the July high isn’t impulsive either (but could be motive), which leaves the wave picture unclear. Pay attention to the rising trendline just below price. Weakness below would be the best signal yet that a breakdown is underway. Downward slope is defined by the December-January trendline and also serves as the bearish invalidation level."


If the price breaks 95.95 resistance on close daily bar so the bullish reversal will be started.
If the price breaks 95.05 support level on close daily bar so the primary bearrish trend will be resumed.
If not so the price will be on bearish rangging within the levels.

Fundamental Q4'16 Forecasts for Dollar Index (based on the article)


Dollar Index - "The decline from December 2015 to May 2016 consists of 5 waves. The decline is classified as a diagonal due to waves 2 and 4 overlapping. The rally from the May low is in 3 waves (most of wave C is Brexit), which reinforces the idea that the broader trend is now lower (3 wave movements are considered countertrend). Each rally since August has failed at or just below the 200 day average, which is now downward sloping. Trading focus is lower as long as the index is below the December-January trendline. Expect weakness to accelerate in the event of a drop below the parallel that extends off of the March 2015 high (this line was support in August). Strength above the July high at 97.56 would at least delay the bearish call."

Fundamental Q4'16 Forecasts for EUR/USD (based on the article)


EUR/USD - "Put simply, if there is a seismic shift in the US political environment, the Fed will be forced to go back to the drawing board and dramatically alter its growth and inflation forecasts. Doing so will likely come at the expense of a rate hike this year - which means one less reason to like the greenback. There are thus two periods to watch for on the US Dollar side: the run-up to the election on November 8; then the fallout and lead-in to the December 14 FOMC meeting. Even though EUR/USD is coiling now, there are plenty of reasons to look for increased volatility."

Fundamental Q4'16 Forecasts for GBP/USD (based on the article)


GBP/USD - "The first set of crucial technical levels carved out through the previous quarter are 1.3500 resistance and 1.2800 support. These boundaries were set early and were not retested through the subsequent months – in other words the market was contracting. Dwindling consolidation was the primary feature of the Dollar-based majors and for the broader financial markets through the inordinately quiet third quarter. In turn, GBP/USD will likely succumb to changing winds that force major breakouts and trend development. A break below 1.2800 would likely be met with chop and struggle for progress. In contrast, an earnest break above 1.3500 will more readily find momentum towards 1.4750 and perhaps as high as the 1.5000 pre-Brexit spike."

Fundamental Q4'16 Forecasts for USD/JPY (based on the article)


USD/JPY - "Looking at the pair from a daily perspective, we can see that since the “death cross” of the 50-day simple moving average below the 200 average, the USD/JPY has been in a clear down trend, well below the 200 SMA, and every attempt above the 50 SMA was quickly rejected. In turn, this implies that at the moment there are no significant bullish signs at the shorter term outlook. For bulls to start making a case for higher prices, the pair may need to break, and hold above its 50 day SMA, which also coincides with a descending trend line at this point in time. This might expose resistance around 105.455 followed by 110.750. If bears manage to crack the 100 level, and hold price below, they might hit an air pocket (intervention risks aside) until the 95 level, with the 90 level in focus immediately after."

Fundamental Q4'16 Forecasts for GOLD (based on the article)



GOLD (XAU/USD) - "Gold continues to hold within the confines of an ascending channel formation off the yearly lows with prices looking to close the third quarter just above near-term support at 1303. This level is defined by the 100% extension of the decline off the high, the May high and basic channel support. A sliding parallel extending off the yearly high has continued to cap topside advances for now and heading into the fourth quarter the focus will be on a break of this near-term range between trendline resistance & 1303."
