    Weekly Fundamental Forecast for Dollar Index (based on the article)


    Dollar Index - "Next week, a speech from Fed Chair Janet Yellen is likely to reiterate an intent to press on with stimulus withdrawal and CPI data is expected to show a pickup in core inflation. That may keep the greenback marching higher as traders weigh the US policy path against standstill elsewhere in the G10."

    GBP/USD"Market participants may put increased emphasis on the fresh rhetoric coming out of the FOMC with Chair Janet Yellen scheduled speak next week, and the greenback may stage a larger advance over the days ahead should the central bank head show a greater willingness to implement higher borrowing-costs over the coming months."

    Weekly Fundamental Forecast for AUD/USD (based on the article)


    AUD/USD - "The intertest rate backdrop is that US rates will continue to rise while their Aussie counterparts are going nowhere this year, and possibly into next (protracted hostilities involving the US in Syria could change all this, of course). The Reserve Bank of Australia has said little which might challenge this view. More importantly, it put its worries about a stronger currency front and center in the minutes of its last monetary policy conclave. This is not an environment conducive to a higher Australian Dollar."

    Weekly Fundamental Forecast for USD/CNH (based on the article)


    USD/CNH - "Among all the event risks, exports and imports reads could have a greater direct impact to the Dollar/Yuan than others. China has been shifting from an export-driven economy to domestic-consumption-driven. However, this will need to take a long process; so far, Chinese producers still largely rely on international demand. In the U.S.-China leaders meeting, Trump told that the U.S. has “made progress” in the relationship with China and “lots of very potentially bad problems will be going away”. The bilateral trade issue is considered to be one of those “bad problems”. For China, avoiding major conflict with its U.S. counterpart will give it more time to upgrade the manufacturing industries that still heavily depend on exports, and in turn, will help to stabilize the economic growth when a slowdown is already seen."

    CAC 40 - daily bullish with 5,132 resistance level to be testing (based on the article)

    Daily price is located above Ichimoku cloud in the bullish area of the chart. The bullish trend is going to be continuing with ascending triangle pattern together with 5,132 level to be broken, otherwise - bullsh ranging within the levels.


    • "The CAC 40 is now retracing its early morning gains after initially trading to a fresh 2017 high to start today’s session. As the market stands now, the CAC 40 is trading down -0.44% for Monday’s trading. Top Winners for the CAC 40 include Nokia (+0.85%) and Solvay (+0.57%). Top Losers for the Index includes Airbus (-1.59%) and Societe Generale (-1.58%)."
    • "Technically the CAC 40 has just put in a new high at 5,152.00 in an ongoing uptrend. As prices back down from this point, the Index remains supported above its 10 day EMA (exponential moving average) found at 5,104.19. If prices remain supported near present levels, traders may look for the CAC 40 to rebound later in the week towards new yearly highs. However if the CAC 40 continues to turn lower, a bearish breakout may next expose the standing April monthly low at 5,054.80."
