Trading idea for the AUD/CAD

Good evening, dear traders. I present to you the trading idea for the AUD/CAD pair. The decision on the Bank of Australia interest rate - to leave it unchanged until 11/05/2019 - was positively received by the market. And almost all instruments with the Australian dollar worked on a major note. Our recommendations on holding longs on the AUD/USD pair also worked perfectly for this news, and those who followed this trading recommendation closed their positions in positive territory.

However, there was only one instrument with AUD, and the potential of longs on which has not yet been fully exhausted. This is AUD/CAD. We have already given recommendations on this instrument and they all closed in positive territory:

Image

Despite that, the instrument has not yet fulfilled all the goals to the end. I mean the level of 0.91500. And if you want to gain a long position on it, profit can be fixed there. From current prices, the potential will be about 850p for 5zn. But if the instrument rolls back - the potential will be higher. It can be noted that the asset is quite "noisy" and gaining a position, as a rule, is not a problem. The nearest news on it (CAD)- change in employment will be released on Friday at 13:30 UTC+00. It is most likely that the breakdown will take place at this time.

Good luck in trading and see you tomorrow!

GBPUSD. Bank of England dissidents, predictions and phlegmatic pound

The results of "Super Thursday" were expectedly not in favor of the British currency, although the first violin in the downward pressure on the pound was played not by the head of the Bank of England Mark Carney, but by two members of the English regulator who unexpectedly called for easing monetary policy. Traders were clearly discouraged by this fact, since the prospects of monetary policy have recently been discussed in a slightly different aspect. Experts discussed - will the BoE raise the rate in the first half of next year or will it still take a wait-and-see attitude? Now this discussion has been supplemented with one more question - will the English regulator resort to a preventive reduction in the rate?

Image

The culprits of the bearish triumph were two members of the Committee - Michael Saunders and Jonathan Haskel. It is worth noting that Saunders is not the first to vote "against the grain", that is, contrary to the general opinion of most colleagues. A little over a year ago, he, along with Ian McCafferty, voted to raise the rate, while the remaining seven members of the Committee voted to maintain the status quo. This went on for three meetings, but then Saunders again joined the majority, voting in a general rhythm.

Now there is a mirror situation. Saunders and Haskel voted to reduce interest rates, violating the expected balance of power (0-2-7 instead of the predicted 0-0-9). For the first time in three years (that is, since August 2016), members of the Committee, albeit not in the majority, voted in favor of easing monetary policy. Moreover, Saunders and Haskell said that the regulator needs to introduce additional incentives as soon as possible, since recent releases indicate a weakening of the British labor market amid increasing risks from the global trade conflict.

The BoE did not support the peculiar "dissidents" in its conclusions, but also did not exclude the realization of such a scenario in the future. The rhetoric of the accompanying statement left a double impression. On the one hand, the English regulator made it clear that if global economic growth does not stabilize, Brexit uncertainty will continue, and key economic indicators will continue downward trend, then the central bank may have to intervene. But then the regulator hastened to declare the likelihood of an alternative scenario. If these risks do not materialize, then the issue of a gradual increase in the rate will again be on the agenda.

In other words, the prospects for monetary policy in the UK again depend on external factors. The Bank of England made it clear that it is ready to tighten monetary policy, but in the conditions of a "soft" Brexit and at least a conditional trade truce between the US and China. And of course, given the growth of key macroeconomic indicators in Britain, especially in the labor market and inflation.

Unfortunately for the GBP/USD bulls, the English regulator lowered its forecasts for the main economic indicators. So, GDP growth for the next year was reduced from 1.3% to the lowest level over the past ten years, 1.2%, and in 2021 - from 2.3% immediately to 1.8%. The BoE also lowered its inflation forecast - according to regulator members, its growth will slow by 1.2% by mid-2020, due to lower prices for black gold and regulatory restrictions on electricity and water tariffs.

Summing up the November meeting, Mark Carney confirmed that the central bank's next likely move would be a reduction in interest rates, as the Bank of England's updated economic forecasts were revised negatively. He also expressed concern that weak investment is detrimental to industrial production, thereby limiting the growth of the British economy and slowing inflation.

Image

Nevertheless, it cannot be said that Carney announced a rate cut in the near future. He just did not rule out a similar scenario, linking it primarily with a possible "hard" Brexit and a general slowdown in the global economy. He voiced such rhetoric more than once, just in this case, Carney's position was reinforced by updated forecasts of the central bank of a negative nature. The two members of the Committee who voted in favor of lowering the rate only added fuel to the fire, putting additional pressure on the pound.

Thus, the November meeting of the Bank of England was by no means "passing". But despite the dovish tone of the regulator, the downward impulse of the GBP/USD pair was limited. Bears could not even gain a foothold in the 27th figure, and the price actually returned to its previous positions during the US session on Thursday. Apparently, traders are still tuned for a Conservative victory in December, and, accordingly, for the soft Brexit, with all the ensuing consequences.

Given this market reaction, it can be assumed that the GBP/USD pair will continue to trade flat, reacting violently only to political news. The pound turned out to be stress-resistant to dovish threats from the Bank of England, so the further dynamics of the pair will be determined only by the political prospects of the "divorce proceedings" between London and Brussels.

Control zones NZDUSD 11/11/19

The downward movement of the pair is impulsive, as the pair has gone beyond the average weekly movement. This indicates a high likelihood of continued fall and an update of the monthly low. Sales will be profitable after the pair returns to the broken middle course zone. The lower boundary of this zone is at the level of 0.6354.

Image

Work in the downward direction will be a priority at the beginning of the new week. The first goal of the fall will be WCZ 1/2 0.6271-0.6265.

A strong increase in demand is required to break the downward momentum, which will lead to the closure of trading on Monday to be above Friday's Asian session. This will indicate the emergence of a major player interested in the appreciation of the New Zealand dollar.

Image

Daily CZ - daily control zone. The area formed by important data from the futures market, which change several times a year.

Weekly CZ - weekly control zone. The zone formed by important marks of the futures market, which change several times a year.

Monthly CZ - monthly control zone. The zone, which is a reflection of the average volatility over the past year.

Do not trade USD until Wednesday/Thursday

I present to you the evening market analysis.

So today, Monday is one of the worst days to trade in a week, according to many experienced traders. However, if we filter out prejudice and look at the economic calendar, then the next news we will see is only on Wednesday and Thursday. Below, I noted all the important news on USD by the end of the week:

Image

As you can see, this week, we have inflation on Wednesday, and on Thursday, PPI and Powell will be powerful volatile days. Think about it yourself, if you are a bank trader and know that on Wednesday - USD inflation - will you be gaining a position on rumors about its increase or decrease? Of course not! Do you know why? Because all profitable participants are "accountable" people, i.e. they report on their actions to management, investors, etc. Because it is a business. That is why market volatility is falling ahead of the good news. And now is just such a moment. Therefore, I recommend to wait until Wednesday and Thursday.

Most private traders trade a pair of EUR / USD, and I think that it's better to forget about "dollar" instruments by Wednesday. For saving money in flat is a great art. I'm perhaps the only analyst who will periodically recommend you not to trade :). "Stay in the cache" - believe me - far from the worst option in trading. After all, the main task in trade is to save a deposit.

Good luck in trading and see you at the morning review!

Oil returned to production

Euphoria over the proximity of the agreement between China and the United States to end the trade war pulled up quotes of the Brent and WTI. Nevertheless, it was worth of Donald Trump to say that the issue of the rollback of import duties has not yet been resolved, China will notice an 11.5% increase in black gold imports in October, and Oman will declare at the OPEC+ meeting that the agreement on production cut would be extended in the previous volume, as the bulls in both varieties began to get nervous.

As I noted in several previous materials, the slowdown in shale production in the United States, on the one hand, and the reduction in its volumes by Saudi Arabia, Russia, and other countries, on the other hand, have made the factor in changing global demand as the main driver of pricing. The slowdown in its growth under the influence of trade wars caused oil to fall from April to September, however, as soon as a turning point emerged in relations between Beijing and Washington, the situation changed radically. Speculators began to leave short positions and open long ones, and black gold added about 5% since the beginning of November.

The dynamics of speculative positions and quotes WTI

Image

China is the largest oil consumer in the world, therefore, an increase in its imports in January-October by 10.5% YOY made it possible for investors to raise the logical question: if a trade war does not prevent China from increasing purchases of black gold, is it worth expecting that an agreement between Beijing and Washington will sharply raise prices? It is possible that most of the positive has already been incorporated into the Brent and WTI quotes, so the agreement under Phase 1 will go unnoticed by the players.

Due to the prevailing principle of "buy by rumors, sell by facts" on the market, oil bulls may have problems after the OPEC+ signs an agreement on the extension of the Vienna agreement. It envisaged a decrease in production by 1.2 million bpd to March 2020. According to representatives of Oman, quotas will remain unchanged. Investors have no doubts about extending the terms of the agreement, so black gold can plunge into a wave of sales. Morgan Stanley believes that with such an outcome of the meeting between the cartel and Russia, prices for the North Sea grade will fall by 30% to $45 per barrel. Citigroup and BNP Paribas are afraid of the decline in Brent and WTI down to their lowest levels since the 1950s.

Only one thing is obvious - the discussions will be hot. Saudi Arabia needs North Sea growth of $84 per barrel and more to finance its wasteful spending, and Iran with its US sanctions - and $195 per barrel altogether. Opponents of further cutting, most likely, will talk about the loss of OPEC+ market share.

Technically, a breakthrough of resistance at $62.6 and $63.6 (Pivot levels) will make it possible for the Brent bulls to continue the rally in the direction of the targets for the Wolfe Wave and Shark patterns. They are located near the marks of $72.1 and $73.8 per barrel. On the contrary, the inability of buyers to storm important levels will increase the risks of declining quotes to $59.3 and $56.3.

NZD / USD - change of priority

Good evening, dear traders! A rather rare event has occurred today: the NZD rate has not been lowered, although all the data and forecasts have indicated otherwise. The market expected a rate cut by 0.25 basis points, and as a result, the RBNZ decided to leave it at the same level. Of course, the event was unexpected at the moment, and the market reacted bullish: the NZD/USD currency pair will end the current day with strong growth. Therefore, the recommendation for this instrument is attempts to take a long position (buy), but only from a pullback.

Thus, I believe that on such a "positive" for the New Zealand currency, growth can be expected to continue from the morning impulse and the level of 0.6442 can be considered a possible target for growth - this is an important level for sellers who believe in this level as a resistance level. Now, after today's news, a very real prospect opens up to see at least a false breakdown of this level.

Image

The level of 0.6369 is considered to be an intermediate level for the pullback - it would be interesting to see the pullback as such in its area.

I wish you all success in trading and great profits!

Forecast for EUR/USD on November 15, 2019


On Thursday, due to new difficulties in relations between the United States and China (China is resisting the signing of a clearly unprofitable trade agreement for it), investors chose to close their positions due to the uncertain economic data for Europe and the US that are coming out today, right before strong technical support (1.0985). The price exceeded the MACD line, the Marlin oscillator showed a reversal, but these are not yet sufficient conditions for significant growth, the situation is typical for correction. With the return of the price under the MACD line, the next wave of activity in euro sales is likely. We do not expect a correction above the Fibonacci level of 123.6% (1.1073).

Image

On the four-hour chart, the Marlin signal line entered the growth zone, while the price remains below the MACD line. The exit of the price above the line (1.1035) will allow the euro to develop a correction. This can be prevented by economic indicators; The eurozone trade balance for September is expected today to fall from 20.3 billion euros to 18.7 billion, US retail sales are projected to grow by 0.1% in October from -0.3% in September. Concern is caused by industrial production in the US for October, the forecast is -0.4%.

Image

So, after the correction is over, we are waiting for a new round of euro decline. Overcoming the first support at 1.0985 opens the way to the second goal 1.0925.

Control zones USDJPY 11/18/19

The pair tested the WCZ 1/2 108.48-108.38 last Thursday. Consolidation below the zone did not occur, therefore, the upward medium-term impulse remains a priority. The first growth target is the November high. Its achievement will make it possible to close part of the purchases and transfer the rest to breakeven.

Image

Closing Friday trades made it possible to form an absorption pattern of the daily level, which confirms the bullish momentum.

Re-absorption of Friday purchases will be required to implement an alternative option. The probability of this is below 30%, which does not make it possible to consider sales. The main goal of the bullish impulse is the weekly control zone 110.15-109.94, which gives a favorable risk-to-profit ratio for any purchase made from current levels and below. Therefore, it is necessary to consider the possibility of adding to a long position.

Image

Daily CZ - daily control zone. The area formed by important data from the futures market, which change several times a year.

Weekly CZ - weekly control zone. The zone formed by important marks of the futures market, which change several times a year.

Monthly CZ - monthly control zone. The zone, which is a reflection of the average volatility over the past year.

Pound breaks the rules of the game

The unwillingness of the Brexit Party to continue the struggle for seats in the renewed Parliament was the catalyst for the GBP/USD rally in the direction of the psychologically important mark of 1.3. In 2017, out of 43 seats now owned by Nigel Faraj's followers, 17 were held by the Conservatives, 11 by the Labour Party. The chances of the Tories' victory on December 12 are growing, and according to a poll by Bloomberg experts, their win will allow the pound to fly to $1.34. In such conditions, bulls will find it difficult not to fall into euphoria.

According to a Savanta ComRes poll, the Conservative Party has a 10-point lead over the opposition Labour. Studies by Ipsos Mori showed that 25% of respondents believe in the Tory victory, a third of respondents believe that Boris Johnson's supporters will lead the coalition in the new Parliament. The prime minister himself claims that Conservatives will end the uncertainty that is hampering Britain's economy. Indeed, weaker GDP growth than Reuters experts expected, job cuts, inflation slowdowns and disappointing retail sales statistics indicate that Great Britain is in pain from market uncertainties.

As a result, the 5% sterling rally for the last quarter runs counter to the principle of fundamental analysis "strong economy - strong currency". I would not be surprised if weak data on business activity in Britain lead to a continuation of the rally of the analyzed pair, because in this situation the chances of the Conservatives winning will increase.

Theoretically, the volatility, growing like a yeast, should also exert pressure on the pound. Due to the volatility of quotes, GBP has often been called the "Great British Peso" recently, comparing it with the currencies of developing countries. In fact, the current level of volatility suggests that after a month the sterling will either rise to $1.32, or fall to $1.25. The first option seems more plausible than the second. Pound Volatility Dynamics

Image

The pound is able to restore the bullish trend before December, however, to begin with, it needs to be tested by the publication of the minutes of the October FOMC meeting and political debate. In his speeches at a press conference following the Federal Reserve meeting and before the US Congress, Jerome Powell put a high barrier to changing the rate on federal funds. Its current level of 1.75% is considered by the central bank as comfortable, and reduction is possible only in two cases: with the escalation of the trade conflict in Washington and Beijing and with a significant and prolonged deterioration of US macroeconomic statistics. As a result, the derivatives market believes that before the fall of 2020, changes in the monetary policy of the Fed should not be expected. If the minutes of the October FOMC meeting confirms this, the US dollar may receive some preferences.

Technically, the GBP/USD update of the October highs will increase the risks of continuing the upward campaign to the area of 1,322-1,327, where the Bat and AB = CD targets are located, as well as the Pivot levels. While sterling is trading above $1.2725-1.275, the situation is under the control of the bulls.
