The outcome of the French election is important because of the size of the economy, second only to Germany in the euro area, and also because of the anti-euro comments made by some contestants in the election, she said.

"DXY held trendline support at the March low and just found resistance from the median line of the 2016 channel. I don’t have a strong opinion on direction right now but the barriers are the January-March line and 2016 trendline. A move on either side of these lines (daily close) ideally ushers in the next directional move."

GBP/USD - daily price broke 200-day SMA for the bullish (based on the article)

Daily price broke 200 SMA to above to be reversed to the primary bullish market condition. The price is testing 1.2903 resistance level to above for the bullish trend to be condition, otherwise - ranging waiting for direction.


  • "Prime Minister Theresa May announced that general elections would be held early, on June 8th of this year. The move was largely applauded as cogent political strategy in the effort of gaining a Conservative super majority to push through Brexit negotiations. And this very much may be the case; but given the volatility seen in global elections over the past year, it would seem that a bit of reservation should be due before any long-term prognostications are built based on early polling numbers. "
  • "The immediate impact to the British Pound was a quick run of strength that finally sent price action above the 1.2775-level. Prices continued to run in a rather aggressive fashion, all the way up to 1.2903 before sellers came-in. This led many outlets to claim that PM May’s announcement was a ‘game-changer’; and again, this very much may be the case but for traders putting money on the line, this is a leap-of-faith that shouldn’t yet be initiated until more information presents itself. "

Dax Index - daily bullish with the secondary correction; 11,980 level is the key (based on the article)

Daily price is located above Ichimoku cloud in the primary bullish area of the chart. The price was bounced from 12,411 resistance level to below for the correction to be started with 11,980 support level to be broken for the correction to be continuing and with 11,878 bearish reversal support level as a nearest daily target.


  • "Should the market get a little pep in its step, we’re looking to 12050 as resistance, and then the underside of the broken channel, which at this time comes in at over 12100. On the hourly chart the DAX is running lower in a descending channel, which we will use as a short-term guide; stay below the upper parallel and a bearish bias remains intact, while a jump above will warrant consideration for alternative paths. The lower parallel may act as minor support with further selling, but the next significant swing point comes in at 11850, with 11916 as a possible stopping point along the way. Below 11850, we look for 11722 to come into play."
  • "All-in-all, the game-plan is to continue to focus on short-term entries from the short-side, but should the DAX violate the current bearish posturing we will be quick to change gears."

Crude Oil Price Forecast: daily bearish reversal; 52.55 level is the key (based on the article)

Daily price broke Ichimoku cloud to below for the bearish reversal: the price is testing descending triangle pattern together with 52.55 support level to below for the bearish tred to be continuing.


"While OPEC may be winning in their battle to balance the global Oil market, it is not necessarily happening on the timeframe they would prefer. Naturally, it is not helpful that Shale production is at its highest levels since 2015. The U.S. Shale resurgence coupled with OPEC’s supply management continues to provide hope for Oil bulls. While Crude dropped ~3% on Wednesday, there is also likely to be volatility on expiration-position squaring is occurring as May WTI contract expires Thursday."

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


Dollar Index - "The US Dollar fell for a second consecutive week as the Fed rate hike outlook continued to deteriorate. Geopolitical jitters are almost certainly a big part of that story, even if the narrative has somewhat shifted from US tensions with Russia and North Korea to EU politics. Homegrown factors have also emerged however amid growing worries about slowing economic growth. An ominous picture is painted by the closely watched GDPNow model from the Atlanta Fed. It updates quarterly GDP growth projections with each incoming bit of relevant economic data. That forecast now predicts that output will add just 0.5 percent in the three months to March. That is far weaker than the 1-2 percent range expected by the markets."
