Daily Technical Forex Forecast 19.10.2017


EUR/USD

The Euro grew up yesterday, but the move was on average volume, so it did not change anything as the pair is still trading in the consolidation between two volume levels: the support 1.1680 – 1.1699 and the resistance 1.1870.

That’s why our previous scenario remains the same, we should consider new deals for this currency pair only after a sharp and sure exit of the price from the range. The breakout movement must be sharp and on large volume.

While the pair continues trading inside it, we should stay out of the market.

GBP/USD

The Pound tested the support level 1.3163, but could not break it down and now the pair is trading in the local consolidation, which contains huge volume accumulation. It is important to note that large volume was concentrated during the test of the level, so we can consider opening short positions only after its abrupt breakdown.

As for long positions, we can open them only after a breakout of the local maximum 1.3318.

USD/JPY

The yen showed a significant and rapid price increase on Wednesday and now it is trading near the resistance level of 113.20 – 113.42, in which large volume is concentrated and which is also the upper limit of the consolidation. It should be noted that the upward movement was on average volume, which was evenly distributed throughout the chart, so it is impossible to single out a particular level or zone.

Nevertheless, given the sharp price growth and the fact that it is located near the resistance level now, it is worth considering the scenario of breakdown of this mark and opening of long positions for the USD/JPY.
The breakout movement must be sharp and on increased volume, after fixing the price above resistance, we can open purchases. A stop loss should be placed above the breakout volume bar. The potential of the deal is more than 110-120 points.
