Elliott wave analysis of EUR/NZD for July 30, 2018

We continue to expect support at 1.1716 will be able to protect the downside for a break above resistance at 1.7207 that confirms, that red wave ii has completed and that red wave iii towards 1.7510 and above is developing.

An unexpected break below support at 1.7116 will tell us that the correction in black wave ii/ still is in motion for a continuation closer to 1.7067 before a possible corrective low should be in place.

R3: 1.7268
R2: 1.7207
R1: 1.7163
Pivot: 1.7137
S1: 1.7116
S2: 1.7067
S3: 1.7033

Trading recommendation:
We are long EUR from 1.7226, with our stop placed at 1.7110. If you are not long EUR, the buy a break above 1.7207 and use the same stop at 1.7110.

Elliott wave analysis of EUR/NZD for August 1, 2018



EUR/NZD tried to break above short-term important resistance at 1.7205 but failed. We think it is just a matter of time before a new attempt to break above this resistance is seen. A firm break above resistance at 1.7205, will confirm that red wave ii has completed and that red wave iii towards 1.7510 and above is developing.

Short-term, support remains seen at 1.7134 and 1.7116. The later should continue to protect the downside for the expected break above 1.7205. An unexpected break below 1.7116, will indicate that black wave ii/ still is in motion for a spike lower to 1.7066 before turning higher in black wave iii/.

R3: 1.7268
R2: 1.7207
R1: 1.7185
Pivot: 1.7165
S1: 1.7137
S2: 1.7116
S3: 1.7106

Trading recommendation:
We are long EUR from 1.7226 with our stop placed at 1.7110. If you are not long EUR yet, then buy a break above 1.7205 and use the same stop at 1.7110.

Gold bets on August

July was the fourth consecutive month of gold closing in the red zone. The precious metal has not faced such a protracted peak since 2013. The US economy and the aggressive monetary tightening of the Fed, which gained under the influence of the fiscal stimulus, dealt a serious blow to the positions of the bulls in the XAU/USD. The futures market is almost 70% confident that the Federal reserve will raise rates twice before the end of the year amid a drop in unemployment to 4%, inflation to the target and an impressive +4.1% q/q of GDP for the second quarter.

Quarterly dynamics of gold

Image

While Japanese investors kept the yield of 10-year US Treasury bonds below the psychologically important 3% mark, and the growth of US stock indices did not allow precious metals to play a role in escalating trade conflicts, a strong dollar left it no chance. Even the information from competent Reuters sources about Donald Trump's willingness to announce the expansion of import duties for China by $200 billion was perceived as a reason for selling the XAU/USD in the near future. The dollar, for investors, seems to be a more reliable safe-haven asset than gold.

What can the precious metal answer? First, the seasonal factor can play on its side. August is the second best month for gold after January. By the end of the last month of summer 2017, it has strengthened by more than 4%, and in 2016-2017, ETF reserves added about 4%. Second, speculative net longs have fallen to a record low since the date of the accounting in 2006. They are lower than at the end of 2015, when the Fed started the process of monetary policy normalization. Finally, third, the market has serious doubts about the ability of the US economy to maintain the pace taken in the second quarter. Let Donald Trump in this no doubt, but the logic says the opposite. The gradual fading of the effect of tax reform, tightening of the Fed's monetary policy, trade wars and the dollar's revaluation in April-July increase the risks of a slowdown in GDP in the third-fourth quarters.

Another thing is that the main competitor of the dollar in the face of the single European currency is not shining yet. In April-June, the divergence in economic growth of the US and the eurozone turned out to be the broadest one since 2014. This does not allow us to count on the ECB's departure from ultra-soft monetary policy and creates serious obstacles for the EUR/USD to move upwards.

In the short term, gold is likely to show increased sensitivity to the results of the FOMC meeting and the release of data on the US labor market. The Fed's "dovish rhetoric and sluggish wage growth will push futures prices in the direction of $1,250 per ounce. On the contrary, if the central bank prefers the "hawkish" hunt, and the statistics on wages will please the eye, the precious metal risks to continue the peak in the direction of $1200.

Technically, gold is trying to push off the convergence zone of $1207-1222 (targets for 200% and 88.6% by the AB=CD and "Shark" patterns). If the bulls manage to keep the quotes above the important support, the risks of a rollback to $1,243 and $1,272 will increase.

Elliott wave analysis of EUR/JPY for August 6, 2018

Image

EUR/JPY has moved just below the lower boundary at 128.66 (the low has been seen at 158.49). This does fulfill all requirements for our slightly preferred scenario, meaning that a low should be in place for wave ii/ and a new impulsive rally in wave iii/ should be ready to develop. Wave iii/ will ideally make it to 135.74 and possibly even higher.

That said, we need to remember that prices need to prove themselves for a strong rally above 129.62. The possible alternate scenario still remains possible. Under this count, wave ii still is developing as an expanded flat correction. If this count is correct, then we should expect resistance near 129.62 will cap the upside for a final decline towards 126.01 to complete wave ii before wave iii will be ready to take over.

R3: 129.62
R2: 129.18
R1: 129.00
Pivot: 128.77
S1: 128.50
S2: 128.11
S3: 127.69

Trading recommendation:
Our stop at 128.50 was hit for a 45 pips loss. We will re-buy EUR here at 128.72 and place our stop at 128.45.

Trump's trade policy continues to work

The euro continued to decline against the US dollar in the morning of Monday, August 6, amid the lack of important fundamental statistics, as well as expectations of further interest rate hikes in the United States.

Data on the sharp decline in orders in Germany put pressure on risky assets.

According to a report by the German Ministry of Economy, production orders in Germany declined sharply in June this year due to falling demand from countries outside the eurozone. This suggests that the current tensions in trade relations are already affecting the indicators, which will further exacerbate tensions between the US and the EU.

As indicated in the report, orders in the manufacturing sector in Germany in June 2018 fell by 4.0% compared to May, while economists had forecast a decline in orders by 0.5%. The ministry confirmed the fact that the uncertainty of the prospects of trade policy played a key role.

External orders in the German manufacturing sector in June fell by 4.7% compared to May, while domestic production orders decreased 2.8% compared to the previous month.

Image

As I noted above, a particular decrease in orders was observed from countries that are not members of the eurozone. Here the figure fell by 5.9%. Compared to the same period of the previous year, orders in the German manufacturing sector decreased by 0.8%.

As for the technical picture of the EUR/USD pair, then, most likely, the pressure on the euro will continue. The breakthrough of support of 1.1530 will lead to new large sales in risky assets, with an exit to the lows of the month in the area of 1.1480 and 1.1440. The only hope of buyers in the short term is a return to the resistance of 1.1565, which will lead to an upward correction in the area of 1.16 and 1.1630.

The British pound continued to decline, ignoring the report on the volume of consumer lending in the UK, which in June this year has not changed compared to may. This shows that consumer spending will continue to grow in the future.

According to the Bank of England, in June 2018, net consumer lending to consumers in June amounted to 5.4 billion pounds against 5.3 billion pounds in May. Credit cards in June amounted to 1.6 billion pounds.

As for mortgage loans, the number was at the level of 65,619. As for the technical picture of the GBP/USD pair, the recovery prospects are also quite far. Brexit and uncertainty with a further increase in interest rates in the UK continue to weigh on the pound.

The current main goal of the sellers of the pound is the lows of 1.2890 and 1.2815. If we talk about the prospects for an upward correction, then, apparently, it will be limited in the area of resistances 1.2960 and 1.3000.

Elliott wave analysis of EUR/NZD for August 8, 2018

Image

EUR/NZD is once again testing important resistance at 1.7224, but we need a clear break above here to confirm that the next impulsive rally towards 1.7510 is in motion. As long as resistance at 1.7224 is able to cap the upside as long does the possibility for a final drop into the 1.7033 - 1.7066 area exist, before completing wave ii/.

Longer-term, we remain bullish EUR/NZD for a rally towards 1.8310 and ultimately higher towards 1.98 - 1.99 area.

R3: 1.7305
R2: 1.7251
R1: 1.7224
Pivot: 1.7187
S1: 1.7150
S2: 1.7115
S2: 1.7094

Trading recommendation:
We are long EUR from 1.7226 with our stop placed at 1.7110.

Is the black band for gold over?

The leader of the precious metals sector, who marked its worst start in the last decade, managed to take a breather due to the strengthening of the Chinese yuan and the Japanese yen against the US dollar. The strong US currency has become the main culprit of the XAU/USD pair slumping by 7% since the beginning of the year. According to the World Gold Council report, global demand fell to 1959 tons in January-June, which is the lowest value since 2009. During the same period in 2017 it was about 2086 tons. And while interest in jewelry and the use of metal in the industry has been stable, the outflow of capital from the ETF became the main driver of falling prices.

According to WGC research, the reserves of specialized exchange-traded funds increased by a modest 60.9 tons in the first half of 2018. In January-June 2017, the process was significantly faster (+160.9 tons). The dog is buried in the flight of American investors from the market. Against the background of the dispersal of US GDP to 4.1% q/q, they preferred to buy securities rather than revenue-generating precious metals. The story of the collapse of Chinese stock indices under the influence of the slowdown of the Chinese economy and trade wars did not help either. If at the beginning of 2016 gold grew in response to the fall of Shanghai Composite, then this year assets prefer to go one way.

Dynamics of gold and the Shanghai Composite

Image

If we focus on the dynamics of capital outflow from the ETF, we can assume that the XAU/USD will continue the downward campaign. Thus, according to Commerzbank's estimates, after the loss of stock of specialized exchange-traded funds of 29 tons in July, from the beginning of August they sank by another 16 tons. The bank expects that in the near future, under the influence of aggressive monetary tightening of the Fed, gold will test the psychologically important mark of $1200 per ounce. Supporters and speculators, who as of July 31 accumulated a record from 2006 net position on the analyzed asset in the futures market 27 156 contracts, equivalent to 2.7 million ounces.

Standard Bank, on the contrary, believes that the black band for the precious metal has remained in the past. The factor of four increases in the federal funds rate in 2018 is practically taken into account in the quotes of the USD index (the futures market gives about 70% of the probability of such an outcome), investors are unlikely to be surprised by this. But the slower normalization of monetary policy of the Fed or the loss of US GDP by the pair can lead to an increase in XAU/USD quotes to $1,260 per ounce in the third quarter. Before the end of the year, gold can test the level of $1300.

The pluralism of opinions allows the "bulls" of the precious metal to take a breath and contributes to its consolidation in the range of $1205-1235 per ounce. Investors will closely monitor the release of data on US inflation for July. Overclocking the CPU to 3% and above will increase the chances of four Fed rate increases and will contribute to the strengthening of the dollar.

Technically, gold reaching the convergence zone of $1185-1220 per ounce (targets for 88.6% and 113% on the "Double top" pattern) increases the risks of a rollback to the current short-term downward trend.

Elliott wave analysis of EUR/NZD for August 10, 2018

Image

After some sideways consolidation between 1.7352 - 1.7448 more upside will be expected towards the next minor upside targets at 1.7924 on the way higher towards 1.8369 and 1.8423.

Support is now seen at 1.7404 and again at 1.7352. Ideally the later will be able to protect the downside for a clear break above 1.7480 confirming the next part of the uptrend towards 1.7924.

Only a break below support at 1.7301 will question the expected rally higher.

R3: 1.7667
R2: 1.7564
R1: 1.7480
Pivot: 1.7437
S1: 1.7404
S2: 1.7388
S3: 1.7352

Trading recommendation:
We are long EUR from 1.7226 and we will raise our stop to 1.7275.
