Global macro overview for 03/07/2017:It might be a busy trading week, so let’s take a look at the top events in the economic calendar this week. It might start slowly, mainly due to the US Independence Day holiday, but it will get very interesting at t…Read more
EUR/USD: This pair moved
upwards by 230 pips last week, ending the consolidation phase that was
witnessed from June 12 to June 24. There is a huge Bullish Confirmation Pattern
in the market, and further upwards movement is possible. However, the upwards
movement may not take place protractedly because the outlook on EUR pairs is
bearish for this week. The EUR/USD may thus slide southwards before the end of
USD/CHF: The USD/CHF pair dropped
precipitously last week, losing about 160 pips. Price almost tested the support
level at 0.9550, before bouncing upwards to close near the resistance level at
0.9600. There is a bearish bias on the market, though that may change soon as EUR/USD slides southwards, helping USD/CHF to rally.
GBP/USD: The GBP/USD pair gained
about 340 pips last week, closing above the accumulation territory at 1.3000
(which was our target for last week). It is possible that price would continue
going upwards this week, but the upwards movement would not be strong, owing to a
bearish outlook on GBP pairs for this week and for the month of July 2017.
USD/JPY: Since June 14, this
currency trading instrument has been going upwards slowly and gradually,
gaining about 350 pips since then. The supply level at 112.50 was tested but
price could not close above that level. This week, there is a great possibility
of a bearish run, because the outlook on JPY pairs is seriously bearish for
this week and for July 2017.
EUR/JPY: Unlike its USD/JPY
counterpart, which moved upwards slowly and gradually, the EUR/JPY pair moved
upwards significantly and rapidly. Price took off from the demand zone at
124.50, reaching the supply zone at 128.50 (a movement of 400 pips). Short
trades are not currently advised here, owing to a big Bullish Confirmation
Pattern in the market. Nonetheless, there would soon be a deep correction in
the market as a result of the bearish outlook on JPY pairs for July – and
that is when short trades would make some sense.
