Weekly Technical Forex Forecast 23-27.10.2017


EUR/USD

Despite the pretty sharp fall on Friday, the Euro is still trading in the global consolidation between two strong levels. The first one is the resistance 1.1870, the second – 1.1680 – 1.1699. Given this fact we can consider that out previous scenario is still actual: we can enter the market only after a confident breakout of one of these levels. The move should be supported by increased/large volume.

Until that it is better to stay out of the market.

GBP/USD

The Pound is also locked in the range between two volume levels: the support 1.3049 and the resistance 1.3318. So the scenario of its trading in totally the same as for the Euro: we can consider new deals only after the exit of the pair from the range on large volume, which will be a more accurate signal for entering the market.

While the pair is trading in the consolidation, we should skip this instrument from our trading plan.

USD/JPY

The Yen continued growing after a breakout of the previous resistance, so now we should consider exceptionally long positions for this currency pair.

A stop loss should be placed below the new support level 1.2558 – 1.2570, where large volume is concentrated. A potential of the growth is around 140 pips.

AUD/USD

AUD/USD fell down sharply and broke down the lower boundary of the local consolidation, which is a good bearish signal. In such a case we can consider opening short positions for this pair.

We can enter the market after the resumption of the sharp fall. A stop loss should be placed above the beginning of the abrupt move. A potential of the deal is 50-60 pips.

XAU/USD

Gold fell down on Friday and totally absorbed the previous growth of the price. Now the instrument is trading near the support level 1277.40, where large volume is concentrated. Given the sharp fall and the fact, that there is no significant reaction of the price to the level, we should consider the breakdown of this level, which will give us an opportunity to open short positions.

The bottom line: there are a couple of good scenarios at the moment, especially USD/JPY and USD/CAD, but overall the situation is a bit complicated, so we need to watch for good confirming signals.
