GBP/USD - daily ranging near and above the bearish reversal levels (based on the article)

Daily price is on bullish ranging to eb above Ichimoku cloud within the following support/resistance levels:

1.3549 resistance level located in the bullish trend to be resumed, and
1.3285 support level located in the bearish reversal to be started.

Most likely scenario in the near future: daily ranging near and above the bearish reversal levels.


  • "GBP/USD can be directed to a deeper area on the chart. The levels of 1.3117 and 1.3216 could be helpful for such a purpose. At 1.3117, we have the 38.2% retracement of the ‘Brexit move’ in the pair, and at 1.3216, we have the 50% retracement of the August-September 2017 bullish move; and this is the same with which the 38.2% has been operable over the past two weeks. "
  • "Support in this zone opens the door for stops below the Q4 swing-low of 1.3026, targeting prior resistance at the 1.3477 Fibonacci level."

NZD/USD - daily ranging; 0.7033 is the key for the bullish reversal (based on the article)

Daily price is located inside ichimoku cloud for the rabging market condition: the price is breaking resistance levels at 0.7033 to above for the daily bullish reversal to be started.


  • "The New Zealand Dollar is struggling to sustain upward momentum having recovered to the highest level in two months against its US counterpart. A choppy range has been carved out below trend-defining resistance, hinting that recent gains might be corrective within a still-valid downward trend."
  • "From here, a daily close above trend line resistance in the 0.7024-43 area opens the door for a challenge of the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 0.7078. Alternatively, a move back below the 23.6% level at 0.6964 paves the way for a retest of former range top resistance at 0.6911, now recast as support."
  • "The short NZD/USD position triggered at 0.6895 was stopped out as prices soared amid a broad-based US Dollar selloff inspired by last week’s FOMC policy announcement. Re-entering the trade seems premature absent an actionable reversal signal, making the sidelines appear most attractive for the time being."

Crude Oil - bullish ranging; 65.80 is the key (based on the article)

Daily price is above Ichimoku cloud in the bullish area of the chart: the price is testing resistance level at 64.90 to above for 65.80 target to re-enter.


  • "Crude oil prices have quietly rallied while the Bitcoin moves steal the headlines. It appears as though a minor degree triangle pattern has ended as crude oil now presses recent highs. If our Elliott Wave count is correct, this move higher is a terminal wave that once it exhausts, could be retraced early in the new year. It appears crude oil prices are thrusting higher out of a triangle pattern in a fifth wave of an impulse wave. Using wave 5 measuring techniques one wave relationship shows up near $60.60 per barrel. Look for this wave 5 to subdivide in motive fashion (either as an impulse or as a diagonal). We can also anticipate divergence appearing on an oscillator like Relative Strength Index, which is typical in a fifth wave. We feel confident in the wave 4 triangle interpretation because in an impulse, wave 4 tends to alternate with wave 2 in the type of wave. Wave 2 was a zigzag wave and wave 4 is a triangle, which fits that guideline of alternation."
  • "Bottom line, we are in a terminal or ending wave of the 4 months advance. Crude oil price may find a terminal point near $60.60 though it does not have to."

Weekly Outlook: 2017, December 24 - December 31 (based on the article)

The last week before the holidays saw the dollar mostly lower, with the exception of the Japanese yen. What’s next? The last week of 2017 is a holiday week that features low trading volume and liquidity. This usually results in quiet trading, but can also see surprising sparks. There are very few events, but they could trigger an outsized response given the conditions.


    1. US CB Consumer Confidence: Wednesday, 15:00.
    2. US Pending Home Sales: Wednesday, 15:00. 
    3. US jobless claims: Thursday, 13:30. This weekly barometer of the labor market disappointed with a jump to 245K last time. We could see it sliding back to the 230Ks now.
    4. Chicago PMI: Thursday, 14:45. This purchasing managers’ index is usually overshadowed by bigger events but could have its say this time. After standing at the high level of 63.9 points in November, the fresh release for December will find it hard to reach higher ground. However, it had already reached higher ground. The 50-point mark separates growth from contraction.
    5. German CPI: Friday, during the European morning with the final release coming at 13:00. Prices in Europe’s third-largest economy rose by 0.3% in November and its early publication will shape the numbers for all the euro-zone. Draghi’s dovishness is based on poor inflation in the euro-zone. We’ll now get an early look while liquidity is super-low just ahead of the New Years’ Party.
