EUR/USD: contradictory dynamics
12/03/2020

Today, investors will follow the ECB meeting, which will end with the publication at 12:45 (GMT) of the decision on interest rates. At 13:30 a press conference of the ECB will begin, during which the head of the ECB Christine Lagarde will explain the decision of the bank, assess the prospects of the European economy and, probably, touch on further plans for the monetary policy of the bank, as well as answer questions from journalists.
Earlier this month, 4 of the world's largest central banks (RB of Australia, Bank of Canada, Fed, Bank of England) reduced interest rates. The Fed, the Bank of Canada and the Bank of England took unprecedented measures by cutting the interest rate by 0.50%, and the Fed and the Bank of England did this during an extraordinary meeting.
The ECB is also expected to expand the stimulus package and lower the key interest rate, which is already in negative territory, at -0.5%.
The markets are dominated by fear of the global coronavirus pandemic. Many global stock indices have already moved to the side of the bear market.
At the beginning of this week, the EUR / USD pair briefly exceeded the key resistance level 1.1440 (EMA200 on the weekly chart), which separates EUR / USD from the bullish trend.
At the beginning of today's European session, EUR / USD is traded near 1.1230, below the important short-term support level of 1.1240 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart), indicating a tendency to further decline.
Above the important support level 1.1120 (ЕМА200 on the daily chart), the upward trend prevails. The return of EUR / USD into the zone above the level of 1.1240 will be a signal for the resumption of long positions, although probably the most cautious investors will prefer to stay out of the market today.
Support Levels: 1.1240, 1.1205, 1.1120, 1.1080
Resistance Levels: 1.1285, 1.1340, 1.1400, 1.1440, 1.1490

Trading Recommendations

Sell by market. Stop-Loss 1.1290. Take-Profit 1.1205, 1.1120, 1.1080
Buy Stop 1.1310. Stop-Loss 1.1220. Take-Profit 1.1340, 1.1400, 1.1440, 1.1490

DJIA: further decline is not ruled out
13/03/2020

Despite the correction of world stock indices observed today, it is still too early to start their purchases. The markets are dominated by investors' fears about the spread of coronavirus in the world and the slowdown of the global economy. World and US stock indices show the strongest decline over the past few years. Just 4 weeks ago, the DJIA was trading near the absolute maximum 29528.0. However, the collapse of the DJIA index crossed out almost all of its 3-year growth.
Donald Trump for 30 days banned the entry into the United States from Europe due to the coronavirus, which raised new concerns about the economic impact of the coronavirus.
A number of the world's largest central banks have taken a sharp decline in interest rates, with the Fed and the Bank of England cutting interest rates by 50 bp at once during their extraordinary meetings.
“Coronavirus poses a growing risk for economic activity”, the US Central Bank said.
Next week (March 17 - 18), the Fed will hold its next scheduled meeting. Investors and economists believe that the Fed will again lower the interest rate at this meeting, dropping it by another 50 bp to the level of 0.75%. Last week, when the Fed unexpectedly cut the rate by 0.50%, Donald Trump urged the Fed to lower it to zero.
Such a decision by the Fed could support the US stock market. However, to say that the worst is over is still too early. The spread of coronavirus in the world does not stop, covering all new regions.
The market is dominated by pessimistic sentiment, which can again bring down stock indices to new local lows.
At the beginning of today's European session, the DJIA is trading near the level of 22200.0, trying to adjust to the area above the level of 22520.0 (Fibonacci level 23.6% of the correction to the DJIA growth wave, which began in February 2016 from 15500.0). But you should still refrain from shopping.
A further index decline to the support levels 20850.0 (Fibonacci level 61.8%), 20400.0 (local lows and ЕМА144 on the monthly chart), 19700.0 (EMA200 on the monthly chart) is not ruled out.
The first signal for DJIA purchases may be its growth into a zone above the resistance levels 24150.0 (ЕМА200 on the weekly chart and the Fibonacci level 38.2%), 24400.0 (ЕМА200 on the 1-hour chart).
In case of negative developments, a breakdown of the support level of 19700.0 can break the DJIA long-term bullish trend.
Support Levels: 20850.0, 20400.0, 19700.0
Resistance Levels: 22520.0, 24150.0, 24400.0, 25200.0, 26220.0, 27200.0, 28160.0, 28630.0, 28840.0, 29528.0

Trading Scenarios

Buy Stop 22600.0. Stop-Loss 21600.0. Take-Profit 24150.0, 24400.0, 25200.0, 26220.0, 27200.0
Sell Stop 21600.0. Stop-Loss 22600.0. Take-Profit 20850.0, 20400.0, 19700.0

Brent: fall continues
16/03/2020

Having exceeded the limit of restrictions in the electronic trading system by 5%, at the opening of the trading day on Monday, futures for the US S&P 500 index fell to around 2568.0. Probably, at the opening of the American trading session, US stock indices will also begin with a sharp drop.
Last Sunday, the Fed held another emergency meeting and cut rates, this time by 100 bp, to a range of 0% - 0.25%, and also announced the allocation of $ 700 billion for the purchase of US government bonds and securities with a mortgage cover.
Global stock indices also continued to decline on Monday. The Australian S&P/ASX 200 fell by a record 9.7%, ending the session about 30% below the peak reached less than a month ago.
The British FTSE 100 in London fell another 7.5% after falling at the opening of electronic trading on Monday by 5%, the European Stoxx Europe 600 at the opening of trading fell by 4.7%. Indices of Hong Kong, Shanghai, South Korea and Japan fell by more than 3%.
Investors no longer pay attention to the Fed and are waiting for the actions of the federal authorities - more serious support to the economy. In the US, government measures may include tax cuts, direct payments to households, earmarked funding, increased federal spending, and other measures.
According to Jerome Powell, Chairman of the US Federal Reserve System, when the Fed decided to lower the rate last Sunday, one of the factors that influenced the central bank’s decision to soften its monetary policy was a sharp drop in oil prices.
WTI oil futures are trading at the beginning of today's European session at a price below $ 30.00 per barrel. Brent oil contracts also traded lower.
Oil market analysts believe that the unexpected increase in oil production due to the severance of partnership between Russia and OPEC, as well as the escalation of the price war between Russia and Saudi Arabia, will increase pressure on quotes, which threatens to reduce them further.
Last week, Saudi Arabia offered buyers from Europe some grades of oil at a price of $25 per barrel.
Brent crude declined on Monday to around 30.50. Probably, the fall in prices may continue.
At the beginning of today's European session, Brent crude is trading at $30.60 a barrel.
Technical indicators OsMA and Stochastic are on the side of the sellers on the 4-hour, daily, weekly, monthly charts, signaling the likelihood of a further price decline.
If the decline continues, then very soon it will be possible to see Brent oil near the price level of $27.00 per barrel. So low oil has not been traded since the end of January 2016, when it reached local multi-year lows.
In an alternative scenario, if the correction starts and after the breakdown of the local resistance level of 40.00 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart), prices will rise to recent lows of 46.00 - 50.00 dollars per barrel. But only a breakdown of the key resistance level of 60.00 (EMA200 on the daily chart) will resume the bullish trend. Below this level of resistance, long-term negative dynamics prevail. Short positions are preferred.
Support levels: 30.00, 29.00, 28.00, 27.00
Resistance levels: 40.00, 46.00, 50.00, 53.50, 54.30, 56.90, 58.50, 60.00, 62.00

Trading Recommendations

Sell by market. Stop-Loss 33.60. Take-Profit 30.00, 29.00, 28.00, 27.00
Buy Stop 33.60. Stop-Loss 29.90. Take-Profit 40.00, 46.00, 50.00, 53.50, 54.30, 56.90, 58.50, 60.00, 61.00

AUD/USD: we expect further fall of the pair
17/03/2020

The pair AUD / USD updated on Tuesday the almost 12-year low, which is near the level of 0.6010, and continues to decline in the first half of the trading day.
The Australian dollar continues to fall amid growing investor fears about the coronavirus pandemic and the strengthening of the US dollar, as well as expectations of the next reduction in the interest rate of the RBA at an emergency meeting on Thursday.
The RBA lowered interest rates during the March meeting and is expected to lower them again at an extraordinary meeting on Thursday March 19, while introducing additional measures. Investors expect further action from the RBA, given in the quotes lowering rates by 0.25% and QE.
At the same time, the US dollar is likely to continue to be in demand amid stress on global financial markets, despite another urgent Fed rate cut of 100 bps last Sunday. Investors are waiting for governments to strengthen fiscal stimulus measures.
In this regard, the fall of AUD / USD below 0.6000 is probably inevitable. Assuming a further fall in AUD / USD the next target will be the support level of 0.4780 (lows of 2001).
In the current situation and below resistance levels of 0.6360 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart), 0.6435 (the recent 11-year low and the Fibonacci level 0% of the correction to the decline wave, which began in July 2014 from 0.9500), only short positions should be considered.
Support Levels: 0.6010, 0.5490
Resistance Levels: 0.6310, 0.6360, 0.6435, 0.6560, 0.6655, 0.6700, 0.6740, 0.6790

Trading Recommendations

Sell by market. Stop-Loss 0.6150. Take-Profit 0.5900, 0.5800, 0.5700, 0.5600, 0.5500
Buy Stop 0.6150. Stop-Loss 0.6000. Take-Profit 0.6310, 0.6360, 0.6435

WTI: prices are falling rapidly
18/03/2020

At the end of today's Asian session, WTI crude oil broke through the psychologically important support level of 26.00, updating the 4-year low. At the beginning of the European session on Wednesday, WTI oil
was traded near $25.30 a barrel, the new local low since February 2016. This is 295% below the local maximum of October 2018, when WTI crude oil was traded near the level of 76.80 dollars per barrel. Over the past 3 incomplete months, WTI crude oil has fallen in price by 235%, collapsing from 61.25.
The aggravating investor pessimism associated with the coronavirus pandemic is pushing global stock indices and commodity prices, including oil, towards multi-year lows.
According to media reports, Saudi Aramco confirmed the intention of Saudi Arabia to increase production to a maximum level of 12 million barrels per day. Last week, Saudi Arabia offered buyers from Europe some grades of oil at a price of $25 per barrel. An increase in production a week earlier was also reported in Kuwait and Iraq. Russia also intends to increase oil production from April, when the deal between Russia and OPEC finally ceases to operate, Bloomberg reported.
Most likely, oil market participants are selling oil futures, given in quotes the upcoming sharp increase in supply. It is possible that oil may continue to decline until the price "finds" new levels of support.
Today, oil market participants will pay attention to the publication (at 14:30 GMT) of the weekly data of the Energy Information Administration (EIA) of the US Department of Energy. The data is expected to indicate an increase of 3.256 mln barrels of oil in the US last week after an increase of 7.664 mln barrels in the previous weekly reporting period. This will only increase pressure on oil quotes.
A stronger dollar is also a negative factor for oil prices.
The DXY dollar index, which reflects the value of the US dollar against a basket of 6 other major currencies, is at 100.15 in the first half of today's trading day, near an almost 3-year high.
A strong negative impulse prevails, pushing oil quotes down. In the same time,
the most cautious investors are likely to prefer to stay out of the heavily oversold market for now. But for those who want to take a chance, as always - our trading recommendations:

Trading Recommendations
Sell by market. Stop-Loss 34.10. Take-Profit 25.00, 24.00, 23.00, 20.00
Buy Stop 34.10. Stop-Loss 24.90. Take-Profit 36.20, 42.15, 43.00

USD/CAD: strong positive momentum
19/03/2020

Given the strengthening US dollar, as well as expectations of a further drop in oil prices, the USD / CAD pair, which reached on Thursday a new high since February 2016 near 1.4668, is likely to maintain positive momentum, at least this week.
Last Friday, the Bank of Canada unexpectedly lowered its key interest rate by 0.50% to 0.75%.
The Bank of Canada said that "lowering the key rate between meetings is necessary due to the coronavirus pandemic, falling oil prices". At the same time, the Bank of Canada has confirmed that it is ready to continue to adjust the monetary policy, "if necessary".
Speaking on Wednesday at a joint press conference with Finance Minister Bill Morneau, Bank of Canada head Stephen Poloz said he did not rule out the possibility of another urgent cut in the key interest rate or any other measures aimed at protecting the economy from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
Thus, it cannot be ruled out that before the end of this week the Bank of Canada will again lower its interest rate, bringing it as close as possible to zero.
At the same time, the US dollar continues to strengthen against other major currencies, taking advantage of the status of a protective asset against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic. And, the demand for the dollar is likely to continue for the time being, despite the energetic actions of the Fed and the White House aimed at supporting the US economy and weakening the dollar.
Above the short-term support level of 1.4000 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart), only long positions should be considered.
Despite being overbought, in the event of a breakdown of the local resistance level of 1.4665, USD / CAD growth is likely to continue.
Support Levels: 1.4370, 1.4300, 1.4200, 1.4100, 1.400, 1.3790, 1.3660, 1.3560, 1.3520, 1.3380, 1.3330, 1.3300
Resistance Levels: 1.4600, 1.4665, 1.4700

Trading Scenarios

Sell Stop 1.4360. Stop-Loss 1.4520. Take-Profit 1.4300, 1.4200, 1.4100, 1.400, 1.3790, 1.3660, 1.3560, 1.3520, 1.3380, 1.3330, 1.3300
Buy Stop 1.4675. Stop-Loss 1.4360. Take-Profit 1.4700, 1.4800, 1.4900, 1.5000, 1.6000

EUR/USD: negative dynamics
03/20/2020

Despite the aggressive and concerted actions of the world's largest central banks, a turning point on global stock exchanges has not yet occurred.
Last Thursday, the two largest world central banks (the RB of Australia and the Bank of England) again held extraordinary meetings and relaxed their monetary policies. For the second time this month, the RBA lowered its key rate, bringing it to a record low of 0.25% from 0.50%, and launched a quantitative easing program, including in the form of lending to the banking system for at least 90 billion Australian dollars. Earlier, the country's finance minister, Josh Fridenberg, announced additional support for small businesses in the amount of 15 billion Australian dollars.
The Bank of England also took additional extraordinary measures yesterday, in the form of lowering the interest rate to 0.1% (from 0.25%) and announcing additional quantitative easing measures in the form of bond purchases worth £ 200 billion. Thus, the total volume of purchases of bonds will be 645 billion pounds.
The European Central Bank, for its part, also strengthened support for the European economy by presenting on Wednesday a new program for the purchase of European bonds in the amount of 750 billion euros in addition to the two ongoing quantitative easing programs - a regular monthly purchase of assets in the amount of 20 billion euros and announced last week “antivirus” tranche of purchases with a budget of 120 billion euros to be spent before the start of summer.
The US Federal Reserve said Thursday that it would provide billions of dollars to other central banks with a dollar deficit at a rate close to zero.
Nevertheless, investors are still in a state of shock, and the situation with coronavirus is deteriorating.
It is too early to speak about a reversal of the negative trend in the markets. This fully applies to the EUR / USD pair. During today's Asian session, EUR / USD strengthened by attempting to break through the local resistance level of 1.0785 (February lows). However, with the start of the European session, the decline in EUR / USD resumed. A breakthrough of the local support level of 1.0655 (yesterday and 3-year lows) will signal the likelihood of a further decline in EUR / USD.
In an alternative scenario, a signal for purchases may be a break of EUR / USD into the zone above the short-term resistance level of 1.1010 (ЕМА200 on the 1-hour chart).
Support Levels: 1.0655, 1.0600, 1.0580, 1.0530
Resistance Levels: 1.0785, 1.0830, 1.0900, 1.1010, 1.1050, 1.1100

Trading Recommendations

Sell by market. Stop-Loss 1.0840. Take-Profit 1.0700, 1.0830, 1.0900, 1.1010, 1.1050, 1.1100
Buy Stop 1.0840. Stop-Loss 1.0770. Take-Profit 1.0900, 1.1010, 1.1050, 1.1100

EUR/USD: to the level of 1.0500 in the next 3 months?
02/04/2020

Over the past week, the EUR / USD has been growing, making an attempt last Friday to break through the important long-term resistance level of 1.1090 (ЕМА200 on the daily chart). However, a breakthrough did not work, and on Monday the decline in EUR / USD resumed.
Today, the EUR / USD pair is falling for the 4th day in a row, traded at the beginning of the European session near the level of 1.0925, below the resistance level of 1.1090.
In Europe, the situation around the negative impact of coronavirus on the economy is even worse than in the United States.
The current account surplus of the Eurozone balance of payments will provide some support to the euro. However, the growing political tensions and disagreements within the bloc may lower the EUR / USD to 1.0500 mark over the next 3 months, economists say. Will Eurozone leaders be able to resolve their differences over the economic response to the coronavirus pandemic? So, recently Germany and other countries of Northern Europe, members of the European Union, refused the proposal of Italy, France, Spain and six other countries of the Eurozone to issue joint bonds.
EUR / USD also remains below important short-term resistance levels of 1.1000 (ЕМА200 on the 4-hour chart), 1.0965 (ЕМА200 on the 1-hour chart), which speaks in favor of short positions.
Today, financial market participants will pay attention to the publication (at 12:30 GMT) of the US Department of Labor weekly report on the number of unemployment claims.
It is expected that the number of initial claims for unemployment benefits in the week of March 20 - 27 will be 3,500,000, which will be a new, from October 1982, anti-record.
The position of the dollar may suffer in the foreign exchange market, since extremely negative data from the US labor market will indicate a slowdown in the US economy, which may soon face the problem of not just recession, but also depression. According to a report presented last week, the number of initial claims for unemployment benefits amounted to 3,283,000. Economists attribute this to the coronavirus, which hit the US economy.
In an alternative scenario, the growth of EUR / USD into the zone above the resistance levels of 1.0965, 1.1000 will speak about the resumption of upward dynamics.
Support Levels: 1.0900, 1.0830, 1.0785, 1.0655, 1.0600, 1.0580, 1.0530
Resistance Levels: 1.0965, 1.1000, 1.1050, 1.1090, 1.1145

Trading Recommendations

Sell by market. Stop-Loss 1.1010. Take-Profit 1.0900, 1.0830, 1.0785, 1.0655, 1.0600, 1.0580, 1.0530
Buy Stop 1.1010. Stop-Loss 1.0960. Take-Profit 1.1050, 1.1090, 1.1145

Brent: price increases may be limited
03/04/2020

The news that major oil producers, including Saudi Arabia and Russia, on Monday will discuss the possibility of reducing production, has given new impetus to oil prices. Earlier Thursday, oil prices strengthened significantly after U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted that he expects Russia and Saudi Arabia to agree to reduce production by millions of barrels. After that, Brent prices jumped by 47%, but then went down, as the Kremlin said it was not negotiating with Saudi Arabia.
A little later, official sources in Saudi Arabia reported that the kingdom is ready to consider a significant reduction in production, if other G20 countries support it.
On Thursday, Brent crude rose 21% to $ 29.94, showing a record one-day increase since 1988, and on Friday its price has continued to rise.
If OPEC does not receive signals from US companies that they will also limit oil production, then the oil coalition and Russia will most likely not reduce production, which will lead to a resumption of price reductions.
But still, Russia may go for some reduction in production, as it is forced to do so. An unprecedented drop in demand due to coronavirus has led to the lack of demand for some oil shipments and to the rapid filling of storage facilities.
For technical reasons, Saudi Arabia and Russia may go for a slight decrease in production, but this is unlikely to greatly change the direction of the current trend of oil quotes. And it is downward at the moment. There are simply no buyers for the current volume of oil supply.
Today, the oversupply is approximately 20 million barrels of oil per day. Oil storages are overcrowded, while gas and diesel consumption has declined.
In the current situation of the prevalence of supply over demand, Brent oil prices may soon fall below the recent 18-year low and test the strength of $ 10 per barrel.
Meanwhile, from a technical point of view, there may still be some increase in the price of Brent crude oil to resistance levels near 36.50 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart) and even 40.00 (local maximum).
The price broke through an important short-term resistance level of 26.70 (ЕМА200 on the 1-hour chart), and technical indicators on the 1-hour, 4-hour, daily charts turned to the long positions.
But only a breakdown of the key resistance level 56.00 (EMA200 on the daily chart) will resume the bullish trend. Below this level of resistance, long-term negative dynamics prevail.
If the decline resumes, then after returning to the zone below the level of 26.70, the price will go towards annual and long-term lows near the level of 22.60, and possibly even lower.
Support Levels: 27.10, 26.70, 22.60
Resistance Levels: 32.00, 36.50, 40.00, 46.00, 50.00, 53.50, 56.00, 56.90, 60.00, 61.00

Trading Recommendations

Sell Stop 27.70. Stop-Loss 32.10. Take-Profit 27.10, 26.70, 22.60, 21.00, 20.00
Buy Stop 32.10. Stop-Loss 27.70. Take-Profit 36.50, 40.00, 46.00, 50.00, 53.50, 56.00

WTI: negative dynamics
06/04/2020

Despite the opening of today's trading day with the gap down (due to the fact that the OPEC+ teleconference was postponed to Thursday), during the Asian session, oil prices rose again. At the beginning of today's European session, WTI crude oil is traded near 27.00 mark.
OPEC+ was expected to resume consultations as early as Monday to consider the possibility of a coordinated reduction in production by 10 million barrels per day. OPEC also hoped that the United States would join the teleconference, however, the event was postponed for four days amid some disagreement between Saudi Arabia and Russia, and also because of the US’s unwillingness to decide on its own production cuts.
Now the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) will convene in a virtual meeting on Thursday with the participation of several other oil producing countries, including Canada and Russia. Negotiations are expected to mark the end of the price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia, which led to a record collapse in oil prices over the past 30 days.
Oil market participants are optimistic about the outcome of this teleconference, even if they are more modest than a 10 million barrels a day reduction in oil, as Russian President Putin said last week.
From a technical point of view, the first signal for purchases (breakdown of the resistance level of 22.50 - ЕМА200 on the 1-hour chart) worked.
If the growth continues, the immediate targets will be the resistance levels 28.90 (local maximum and ЕМА144 on the 4-hour chart), 30.80 (Fibonacci level 23.6% of the upward correction to the fall from this year's highs near 65.65 to the local minimum 20.05), 32.30 (ЕМА200 on the 4-hour chart).
However, long-term purchases of oil futures should still be abstained. A coronavirus pandemic and a slowdown in the global economy will put pressure on oil prices in the long run for at least several weeks, or even months.
So far, a strong negative momentum prevails, holding oil quotes near multi-year lows.

AUD/USD: significant uncertainty remains
07/04/2020

Having broken through the important short-term resistance level of 0.6070 (ЕМА200 on the 1-hour chart), AUD / USD is growing again today.
The pair is developing an upward correction, striving for resistance levels of 0.6232 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart), 0.6300 (the upper border of the downward channel and EMA50 on the daily chart).
The growth of AUD quotes, as well as the growth of other commodity currencies, is facilitated by the growth of world stock indices and commodity prices. Indices, in turn, are rising thanks to the first signs that quarantine measures around the world are helping to curb the coronavirus pandemic, and also due to expectations of rising oil prices if this week the largest oil producers, including Saudi Arabia, the US and Russia, will come to an agreement to reduce oil production.
However, caution should be exercised in this regard. The peak of the coronavirus pandemic has not yet been passed, and the world's largest oil suppliers may not come to an agreement to reduce production.
At any moment, the upward correction of commodity currencies, including AUD, may break and be replaced by their decline.
“Substantial uncertainty remains regarding the short-term prospects of the Australian economy. In April-June, a very strong reduction in GDP is expected, as well as unemployment growth to a multi-year maximum”, said RBA managing director Philip Lowe after the central bank on Tuesday kept the current monetary policy unchanged. The pandemic dealt a painful blow to the country's economy, paralyzing the tourism and education segments and causing a sharp decline in consumer spending.
“The board will not raise rates until there is progress in ensuring full employment and there is confidence in stabilizing inflation in the target range of 2% - 3%,” Lowe added, and this is a negative factor for AUD.
AUD / USD purchases can only be short-lived, while the pair is trading above the support level of 0.6070, with targets at resistance levels of 0.6232 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart), 0.6300 (upper border of the downward channel and EMA50 on the daily chart).
Below the resistance levels of 0.6670 (ЕМА200 on the daily chart), 0.6590 (ЕМА144 on the daily chart) the long-term negative dynamics of AUD / USD still prevails.
The breakdown of the support level of 0.6070 will resume the downward trend of AUD / USD and once again make short positions relevant with targets at local support levels of 0.5975, 0.5665, 0.5510 (the recent almost 18-year low and the Fibonacci level 0% of the correction to the decline wave, which began in July 2014 from the mark of 0.9500).
Support Levels: 0.6070, 0.5975, 0.5665, 0.5510
Resistance Levels: 0.6232, 0.6300, 0.6460, 0.6590, 0.6670

Trading Recommendations

Sell Stop 0.6130. Stop-Loss 0.6210. Take-Profit 0.6100, 0.6070, 0.5975, 0.5665, 0.5510
Buy Stop 0.6210. Stop-Loss 0.6130. Take-Profit 0.6232, 0.6300, 0.6460, 0.6590, 0.6670

EUR/USD: short positions are preferred
04/08/2020

After rising on Tuesday (amid a weakening dollar), today the EUR / USD is again falling, remaining below the important long-term resistance level of 1.1075 (EMA200 on the daily chart).
EUR / USD also remains below important short-term resistance levels of 1.0965 (ЕМА200 on the 4-hour chart), 1.0890 (ЕМА200 on the 1-hour chart), which speaks in favor of short positions.
Technical analysis and fundamental background speak in favor of sales of EUR / USD.
Last month, the European Central Bank refrained from lowering the key interest rate, which is already at -0.5%, but announced cheap loans for banks and the purchase of a wide range of bonds to mitigate the economic shocks caused by the coronavirus. The program, which currently makes purchases of European government bonds by 20 billion euros per month, will be increased by 120 billion euros by the end of the year. At the same time, the ECB has less and less room for maneuver in comparison with other central banks, and the attitude of investors towards the prospects of European assets and the euro remains restrained-negative.
Goldman Sachs economists expect Eurozone GDP to decline by 9% in 2020 due to coronavirus. Their pessimistic scenario suggests more significant losses and a 16% reduction in GDP.
This is much higher than the expected loss of GDP in the United States, which provides additional benefits to American assets compared to European ones.
At the same time, the dollar will continue to receive support as a protective asset.
Among investors, there is growing confidence that the countries that are members of the OPEC+ coalition, following the meeting on Thursday, will not be able to agree on a further reduction in production. The oil market continues to be a strong driver for the stock market. Therefore, US and global stock indices may again come under pressure and resume decline if OPEC cannot decide to limit oil production.
Thus, it is logical to expect a further decline in the EUR / USD.
In an alternative scenario and in case of EUR / USD growth into the zone above the resistance level of 1.0965, we can expect the development of an upward scenario up to the resistance level of 1.1075. However, in the current situation and below the resistance level of 1.0890, short positions remain preferred.
From the news today, financial market participants will follow the publication (at 18:00 GMT) of the minutes from the last FOMC meeting of the Fed, and tomorrow - the publication (at 11:30 GMT) of the minutes from the March meeting of the ECB.
Support Levels: 1.0830, 1.0785, 1.0655, 1.0600, 1.0580, 1.0530
Resistance Levels: 1.0965, 1.1000, 1.1040, 1.1075, 1.1145

Trading Recommendations

Sell by market. Stop-Loss 1.0930. Take-Profit 1.0830, 1.0785, 1.0655, 1.0600, 1.0580, 1.0530
Buy Stop 1.0930. Stop-Loss 1.0825. Take-Profit 1.0965, 1.1000, 1.1040, 1.1075

USD/CAD: labor market and OPEC+ meeting
09/04/2020

"A hard day expects Canadians on Thursday,” said Justin Trudeau, the country's prime minister on Wednesday. At 12:30 (GMT), employment data for March will be released. According to Trudeau, more than 4 million workers have applied for unemployment benefits or cash benefits since mid-March, representing almost 20% of the country's workforce, judging by the latest employment data. The forecast for unemployment in Canada for March: 7.2% (against the preliminary forecast of 5.6% and 5.6% in February), which is likely to negatively affect CAD.
However, the situation on the labor market may be even sadder.
At the end of last month (March 27), the Bank of Canada again unscheduled lowered its key interest rate by 0.50%, bringing it even closer to zero. "Our decision today is aimed at supporting the financial system, which plays a central role in lending to the economy, as well as creating the foundation that will allow the economy to return to normal", the central bank said after the meeting. However, participants in the financial market reacted rather restrained to the decision of the Bank of Canada.
A much greater pressure on CAD quotes is currently being exerted by a sharp decline in oil prices, since the Canadian economy still has raw material features, and a significant part of the country's budget is generated from the export earnings from oil sales.
Therefore, the volatility in CAD quotes is expected to increase sharply after 14:00 (GMT), when the OPEC meeting begins. According to media reports, Russia and Saudi Arabia are inclined to conclude a new deal to reduce production and end the price war, even despite doubts about the US ability to join this agreement.
The expectation of this event contributes to the closure of short positions in the oil market, which may support quotes for commodity currencies, including the Canadian dollar.
USD / CAD maintains positive dynamics, to be traded above key support levels of 1.3452 (Fibonacci level 23.6%), 1.3430 (ЕМА200 on the daily chart). Above the support level of 1.3940 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart), purchases look safe.
Breakdown of the resistance level of 1.4100 will lead to further growth of USD / CAD.
In an alternative scenario, and after the breakdown of the support level 1.3940 USD / CAD will go to the support levels 1.3452, 1.3430.
However, much of the dynamics of USD / CAD will also depend on the outcome of today's OPEC+ meeting.
Support Levels: 1.3940, 1.3660, 1.3560, 1.3500, 1.3452, 1.3380, 1.3330, 1.3300
Resistance Levels: 1.4100, 1.4272, 1.4350, 1.4600, 1.4665, 1.4700

Trading Scenarios

Sell Stop 1.3930. Stop-Loss 1.4110. Take-Profit 1.3900, 1.3800, 1.3700, 1.3660, 1.3560, 1.3500, 1.3452, 1.3380, 1.3330, 1.3300
Buy Stop 1.4110. Stop-Loss 1.3930. Take-Profit 1.4272, 1.4350, 1.4600, 1.4665, 1.4700
