Intraday Outlooks For EUR/USD by SEB (based on efxnews article)



EUR/USD: Time for a short break? "The rejection from the previously broken trend line did trigger the anticipated selling and the pair accordingly yesterday continued to decline. Now having arrived at the equality point (between the current decline and the wave 1 one) and with prices outside the 55d Bollinger bands there’s a slightly elevated risk that we will see a corrective bounce higher before continuing lower. On a grander scale the current down-wave, three, is expected to terminate in the 1.05-area."

EUR/USD into Payrolls (based on efxnews article)

Some major int'l financial institutions are making fundamental forecasts concerning NFP for today. For example:

  • Deutsche Bank stated that EUR/USD price may reach 1.05 as a target;
  • Morgan Stanley are talking about intra-day ranging market condition for today for this pair;
  • The Royal Bank of Scotland evaluated 3 scenarios soncerning NFP figures: 200k and above, 175k to 200k and 175k or below. And it was made  one conclusion only: Short EUR/USD.



From the technical point of view - the intra-day price is on bearish market condition located below 100 period SMA and 200 period SMA.

  • If the price will continuing with the bearish condition for today during anf after NFP so 1.0807 may be the nearest bearish target in this case, and the next targets are 1.0461 and year-end target as 1.0059.
  • If the price will start with local uptrend as the bear market rally today so the nearest target is 23.6% Fibo resistance at 1.0897 and Fibo reversal resistance at 1.1094 located on the border between the primary bearish and the primary bullish on the chart.

I think, the most real scenario for today is the following: intra-day price will be in secondary ranging market condition within the primary bearish.

USD, EUR, GBP, CAD, AUD: Outlooks For The Week - Morgan Stanley (based on efxnews article)

EUR: Bearish
"We have revised our EUR forecasts lower and now look for 1.06 at year end. Our economists now expect another 10 bp cut in the deposit rate, an addition to QE, and an extension of the asset purchase programme. All of this should be EUR negative. We believe the deposit rate cut is likely to be the most currency negative, as it should incentivize foreign investors to fund in EUR and domestic investors to seek returns overseas."



USD: Bullish
"We believe USD could start to see inflows related to investment, rather than repatriation of assets. While the latter does not require tighter Fed policy, the former will benefit from a higher probability of Fed hikes. Indeed, this is likely to support US assets and boost USD."



GBP: Bearish
"Markets have taken the BoE dovishly as they revised CPI forecasts and started to get concerned about the impact of EM growth on the UK economy. On top of this, there is a downside risk to near-term inflation as the strong trade-weighted GBP (ERI) puts downward pressure on import prices. The focus is now on EM data again and its impact on commodity prices and general market volatility as GBP remains sensitive to all of these factors."

Hi, 

Quick question!. I came across a report about the oil price. I need to ask if I am investor and looking for an long term investment in Oil companies. But recently I looked over the oil price forecast 2016 report stating there are chance of increase in the oil prices in the coming period. I wanted to know how much feasible it is for me to invest in the oil sector seeing the oil prices are going to vary in the coming year and should I consider investing in the same or look for any other investments?

With oil prices still down more than 40% since last June and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) downgrading global growth forecasts, many are wondering where oil prices will be in 2016. While predictions for oil at $20.00 per barrel seem a little too bearish, a return of oil to $100.00 a barrel in 2016 might be a...

I do not know ... the oil price is more rely on fundamental factors than on technical analysis (more than EUR/USD for example). If you see from the image below - the price is on bearish for ranging within the following key support/resistance levels:

  • 42.18 key support level located on the bearish area of the chart; if the price breaks this level from above to below so the bearish trend will be continuing up to the new 'bottom' (new support) forming; and
  • 54.00 key resistance level located below and near Ichimoku cloud on the border between the primary bearish and the primary bullish on the chart.

There are some more key resistance levels located on the bullish area of the chart: 66.32 and 69.59. I named those levels as 'reversal' levels which means the following: if the price breaks those levels (especially 69.59) from below to above so the reversal of the price movement from the primary bearish to the primary bullish may be started.


  • if the price will break 42.18 on close bar so you can open sell trade;
  • if the price breaks 54.00 so the investment in oil may be considered;
  • if the price will break 69.59 so many traders will start to invest (open buy trade) in oil because the price will be started with good long-term uptrend.

But the price movement for oil is more related to the fundamental news events than to Ichimoku indicator sorry :) so, will see ...

The Royal Bank of Scotland made a forecast for EUR/USD telling that "The cleanest way to play is still short EUR/USD." (based on article). So, let's made very short review of intra-day situation for this pair.

The price (H4 timeframe) is on bearish market condition located below 100 period SMA and 200 period SMA on the bearish area of the chart. Price is ranging within the following key support/resistance levels:

  • 1.0704 key support level, and
  • 1.0884 key resistance level.


  • If the price will break 1.0704 support from above to below on close bar so the bearish trend will be continuing.
  • if the price will break 1.0884 resistance level from below to above so we may see the bear market rally to be started.
  • If not so the price will be moved within the levels.

Thus, The Royal Bank of Scotland is correct one concerning the trend: this is bearish anyway in intra-day basis for the pair.

Technical Overview: Will EUR/USD Break 1.0461 Support? (adapted from article)

BNP Paribas updated their forecast related to the EUR/USD price movement in long-term situation - they told the following: "we are somewhat sceptical on the EURUSD’s ability to test and break the previous 2015 low of around 1.0460." Well ... let's evaluate this forecasting situation with technical point of view.

Ichimoku analysis.
Weekly price is on bearish market condition for the crossing key support level at 1.0704 from above to below for the bearish trend to be continuing. This is bearish breakdown which is going on for right now: Chinkou Span line crossed the price to below for the bearish breakdown to be continuing. And the nearest bearish target is 1.0461. So, there are 2 scenarios concerning the price movement in long-term situation:

  • the price is ranging within 1.0461 support and 1.1713 resistance levels, or
  • the price is breaking 1.0461 support level from above to below on the close bar for example.



Pivot Points.
The price is breaking S2 YR1 Pivot at 1.0672 from above to below with 1.0461 as the next target. And there are two similar scenarios for the price movement related to Pivot Points:

  • the price is ranging within 1.0461 support and S1 Pivot at 1.1337, or
  • the price is breaking S2 Pivot at 1.0672 from above to below on the close bar.

The Strategy: watch the price to break 1.0672with possible sell trade with 1.0461 as a target.
