    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    30.11.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The pair EUR/USD continued its lateral trend amid the lack of important macroeconomic statistics, as well as the low liquidity due to the Thanksgiving Day in the United States. The global equity market shows an upward trend, the Germany high-tech sector was the growth leader. This factor signaled abound the "risky assets" demand which had a negative impact on the euro as a funding currency. According to the dollar index, the quotations were near the psychological level of 100.00.

    The third quarter UK GDP came out. The data is at the forecasted level: 0,5% (q/q) and 2,3% (y/y). The third quarter unemployment rate decreased by 0.3% to the level of 5.3%. This is the highest rate of the unemployment decline in 2015. The average wage increased by 3% on an annualized basis in this period which indicates the household spending growth and is a welcome factor for the economic growth. The data output at the level of 0.6% supported the British currency. However by the end of the trades the pair GBP/USD decreased.

    Japan has published a bloc of important macroeconomic statistics where the inflation: 0,0% (y/y). The CPI has increased by 0.58% for the first nine months of this year while the average earnings grew by only 0.25%. Thus, the population real incomes have reduced and in that respect, the Bank of Japan governor H. Kuroda told about the weak wage dynamics at the monetary regulator last meeting. The Japanese 10-year government bond yields which reflect the inflation investors' expectations fell by 4 bp in October. By the end of the trades the pair dollar/yen slightly increased.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    The euro remained under the downward pressure against the US dollar in anticipation of the upcoming ECB meeting. Investors' expectations regarding the ECB more aggressive the rates easing keep growing ahead of the meeting. Economists predict that the ECB may disappoint the market expectations for the upcoming meeting.

    The downward trend may show weakness in the short term. Trades are held below the strong resistance level of 1.0630. While the level is holding back the price growth from the level of 1.0550, the downward trend potential is still preserved.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.0550, the next one is 1.0420. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.0630, the next one is at 1.0730.

    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is consolidating.

    Trading recommendations

    The downward movement will be continued. The pair may go to 1.0420 soon.



    Pound (GBP)

    General overview

    The UK GDP 3rd quarter estimate is 0.5% q/q + 2.3% y/y that is completely unchanged. The Sterling did not grow because of the UK and Germany government bond yield reduction.

    Trading recommendations

    We expect the 1.5040 line break that will open the way to the level of 1.4970.



    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    The Japanese inflation data at the level of 0.2% came in worse than the consensus forecast year on year which had a downward pressure on the Japanese currency. The "investors’ risk appetite growth" is a threat to the yen as a funding currency.

    The dollar bullish sentiment is dominating. Bulls did not have enough strength at the same time to break through the strong level of 123.20.

    Trading recommendations

    We suppose the pair will go to 122.40 first. Having overcome the first target the price might go downwards to 121.30.



    Franc (CHF)

    General overview

    The dollar and the franc remained mostly at the same place as on Thursday when the US markets were closed to celebrate Thanksgiving Day. The sales remained sluggish until the end of the day as the US markets were closed early on Friday, extending the holiday lull. However by the end of the day the pair slightly increased.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    01.12.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The 10-year German government bond yields decreased by 5 basis points in November. The average earnings growth contributes to the consumer spending increase which is the inflation welcome factor. The debt market showed mixed dynamics: the German 10-year government bond yields are decreasing relative to their US counterparts, while the Gilts growth supported the EUR/GBP quotations moderate growth. Meanwhile the pair EUR/USD showed a slight decrease.

    The US and the UK government bond yields exceeded 40 basis points last Friday. The UK GDP second estimate remained unchanged at the level of 0.5% that has deprived the Cable for the short-term corrective growth continuation. The investment volume has been revised by 0.7% in the positive side, compared with the previous quarter and by 6.6% compared to the same last year period. The British companies are increasing their investments. The commodity market sales had a positive impact on the US dollar value as the raw materials cost is denominated in dollars. The pair GBP/USD was decreasing and only by the end of the trades it slightly corrected upwards.

    The Chinese stock market panic sent the Asian markets downwards and contributed to the carry trade operations closure which caused demand for the Japanese yen as a funding currency. The oil and industrial metals’ prices declined which supported the US dollar as the commodities value is denominated in dollars. The Japanese and the US government bond yields showed growth in the bond market having formed the first signal on the technical correction completion. The pair USD/JPY increased on the Monday’s trades.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    The November Germany inflation preliminary data has been published. The CPI came out at the level of 0,1% m/m and 0,4% y/y. The "black gold" market negative trend put downward pressure on the CPI leading euro-zone economy. The possible US Federal Reserve December policy tightening serves as a main factor for the dollar bullish sentiment.

    Bears have lowered the price below the support level of 1.0630. This level testing ended with the breakthrough failure that fixed the price at the support level of 1.0550.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.0550, the next one is 1.0420. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.0630, the next one is at 1.0730.

    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is decreasing.

    Trading recommendations

    After the support level of 1.0550 breakthrough we may expect the fall towards 1.0420 further on we expect a growth.



    Pound (GBP)

    General overview

    Bears dominated at the market. The debt market shows the negative trend for the British assets. The 10-year government bond yields fell relative to their US and Germany counterparts. The Bank of England governor M.Karni’s statements that the UK low interest rates preservation can last for a long time gave the market an additional incentive to buy the dollar against the pound.

    The support at the level of 1.5100 was broken through and the pair decreased to the level of 1.5040. There was an attempt to break through this barrier to consolidate below. This breakthrough was short-term and the pair returned to the mark of 1.5040.

    The price is finding the support at 1.4970. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5040, the next one is at 1.5100.

    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is correcting.

    Trading recommendations

    If the price fixates below the support 1.5040, it may continue the downward trend in the short term. The potential target is 1.4970.



    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    The bearish sentiment prevailed at the market. The Japanese October industrial production release surfaced a pleasant surprise amid the PMI index positive dynamics. However it was not enough for the downward movement development and the pair increased.

    The price checked once again the correctional corridor support for its strength - the level of 122.40 and then its growth has resumed. The trade was at the marks of 123.20. The current growth is the lateral correction continuation in the corridor of 123.20-122.40.

    The price is finding the first support at 122.40, the next one is 121.30. The price is finding the first resistance at 123.20, the next one is at 123.80.

    There is a non-confirmed and a weak buy signal. The price is above the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows an upward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement and form a “Golden Cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a positive territory. The price is growing.

    Trading recommendations

    We expect the level of 123.20 break that will open the way for the buyers to 123.80

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    02.12.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The USA/Germany and the Germany/UK government bond yields did not show any changes in the debt market. The stable debt market indicates the single European currency side trend development. Europe and the US have published a large package of economic statistics. Investors received the manufacturing sector business activity index data in the Eurozone (52,8 that is at the forecasted median), the Germany (52,9 against the forecasted 52,6) the UK (52,7 against the forecasted 53,6) and the US (48,6 against the forecasted 50,5). The Germany employment data attracted the traders’ attention: 6,3% in November against the forecasted 6,4%). The pair EUR/USD showed an increase.

    The Bank of England governor Carney made his speech. According to Carney the regulator was ready to ease the pressure on the British banks and to reduce the capital requirements volume, bringing an end to the post-crisis reforms years in order to make the banking sector more secure. By te end of the trades the pair GBP/USD showed a growth.

    The dollar index basket is near the current year maximum values. Market participants refrained from active trading and have taken a wait and see position. The manufacturing sector ISM index data output is worse than the forecasted medians that restrained "bulls" from the further attack. The pair USD/JPY was trading in a side corridor.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    If the USA inflation shows some positive signs, the Eurozne one does not show any signs of activity that threatens the European economy with the big economic problems in the long term. We expect the ECB to enlarge the stimulating measures this Thursday which is supposed to push the inflation upwards. In economic news the Germany PMI manufacturing activity index was published which amounted to 52.9.

    The pair started a correction. Sellers have broken through the strong support level of 1.0550. Then, the price jumped upwards. The resistance level of 1.0630 was tested.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.0550, the next one is 1.0420. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.0630, the next one is at 1.0730.

    There is a confirmed and a weak sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is correcting.

    Trading recommendations

    If the price fixates below the support 1.0550, it may continue the downward trend in the short term. The potential target is 1.0420.



    Pound (GBP)

    General overview

    The Markit UK PMI manufacturing sector did not please investors with the strong data: 52.7 vs. 53.6. The British pound sgowed a growth after the UK third quarter strong report. Still the currency has lost 2.4% against the dollar in November, largely due to the Bank of England chief economist Andy Haldane comments who said that the UK did not need to raise the rates in the near future.

    The pair showed some growth, staying under pressure below the nearest resistance of 1.5100.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.5040, the next one is at 1.4970. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5100, the next one is at 1.5150.

    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is correcting.

    Trading recommendations

    We suppose the pair will go to 1.5040 first. Having overcome the first target the price might go downwards to 1.4970.



    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    The bullish sentiment predominance was noted amid the debt market positive dynamics. The Japanese and the US government bond yields expanded that increases the investments’ attractiveness into the US assets and thereby supports demand for the dollar. However the growth impulse weakened.

    The pair stopped its increase. Having rebounded from the support of 122.40, the pair has managed to grow to 123.20 and to test this mark.

    The price is finding the first support at 122.40, the next one is 121.30. The price is finding the first resistance at 123.20, the next one is at 123.80.

    The price is in the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement and form a “Golden Cross”.

    The MACD indicator is in a positive territory. The price is consolidating.

    Trading recommendations

    The buyers need to break above 123.20 for a steady growth. The way to the mark 123.80 will be opened after this breakthrough.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    03.12.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    Traders take a wait and see position awaiting for the ECB decision on December 4th. The ECB soft monetary policy is giving its fruits: the unemployment decreased by 0.7% from the beginning of the year, while the real GDP has grown for the first nine months by 1.79%. According to the second indicator, the euro zone is behind the US which has increased by 2.53%. The German 10-year government bond yields rose relative to their US and the UK counterparts which gives a moderate support for the single European currency. However the pair EUR/USD is trading in a flat.

    As expected the PMI manufacturing sector came out worse than the consensus forecast amid the British goods competitiveness decline. The pair EUR/GBP has dropped by 5% from 1 October to 30 November. We do not expect high growth rates in the 2015 fourth quarter. The UK government bond yields decrease in relation to their US and Germany donds reduces the British assets investments attractiveness putting pressure on the Cable. The pair GBP/USD sharply fell.

    The ISM manufacturing sector release disappointed traders with the weak data. The PMI has fallen below 50% the first time for the last three years which indicates the purchasing managers growing pessimism amid the oil and gas sector stagnation as well as the dollar revaluation. After the ISM release publication the US and Japanese government bond yields fell which signals the presence of bears. The pair dollar/yen grew after a decrease.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    Eurozone published the employment positive release – the October unemployment rate fell to the level of 10.7%. The lowest unemployment rate was recorded in Germany (4.5%), and the highest rate was registered in Greece (24.6%) and Spain (21.6%). The US ADP number of employees’ data has been published (the previous value of 182K; the forecast of 191K). In fact the data came out at the level of 217K.

    The pair EUR/USD recovered from the low of 1.0550, having reached the resistance near 1.0630. Then the pair fell again. The pair is trading in a flat.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.0550, the next one is 1.0420. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.0630, the next one is at 1.0730.

    There is a confirmed and a weak sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a downward movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is consolidating.

    Trading recommendations

    After the support level of 1.0550 breakthrough down the way to the support 1.0420 will be opened.



    Pound (GBP)

    General overview

    The UK PMI construction sector index was published within the consensus forecast. On the one hand, the incomes growth increases the real estate demand. On the other hand, the mortgage interest rates moderate growth, combined with the property prices increase will deter potential buyers (the UK property has grown by 8.4% for the first ten months).

    The pair GBP/USD rate rose to 1.5100, but then the pair sharply fell. The support levels of 1.5040 and 1.4970 were broken through. The level of 1.4900 was tested.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.4900, the next one is at 1.4830. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.4970, the next one is at 1.5040.

    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is decreasing.

    Trading recommendations

    We expect the support level of 1.4900 break that will open the way for the level of 1.4830. Further on we expect a growth to 1.5100 where the pair may stop.



    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    The US new orders indicator also fell below 50%, only 5 out of 13 branches have reported about the orders increase. On the other hand, the employment indicator showed an increase by 3.7 p. and has risen above 50% level which is a positive factor for the Friday's Non-Farm release. The oil and gas sector as well as the auto industry continues to claim about the staff reduction. This report is the first wake-up call for the US economy as a whole and the dollar in particular.

    The pair USD/JPY played its growth out at the beginning of the week, having fallen below the level of 123.20. Initially, the pair showed a sharp fall then the quotes have slightly recovered. The trades closed above the level of 123.20.

    The price is finding the first support at 123.20, the next one is 122.40. The price is finding the first resistance at 123.80, the next one is at 124.30.

    There is a confirmed and a strong buy signal. The price is above the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement. The upward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a positive territory. The price is growing.

    Trading recommendations

    We recommend going long with the first target – 123.80. When the price consolidates above the first target it may go to the level 124.30.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    07.12.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    According to the Fed governor Janet Yellen the too long interest rates growth delay creates certain risks. The FED governor once again noted the labor market positive dynamics which would contribute to the inflation target level completion in the long run.

    The NFP was last Friday main event. The report came in better than it was forecasted that may become an additional reason to hike the rate on December 16th. In economic news, the ISM services and manufacturing sector releases came in at the level of 200 thousand.

    The ECB decision to increase the stimulating package by 420 billion euro to 1 April 2017 caused the market mixed reaction. Instead of the price reduction the strong growth was observed. Analysts believe that the current dollar sales wave is just a correction as the market has achieved considerable highs. The ECB decision is a negative factor for the euro in the medium term as the QE program increased by 41%.

    The pair GBP/USD also showed an impressive growth amid the US currency general weakness. The UK statistical support gave additional support to the pound. The November service sector business activity index rose sharply to 55.9 from 54.9 while analysts had expected a modest increase up to 55.0.
    The USD/JPY could not resist the widespread dollar sales wave. Still the pair managed to grow after a sharp decrease earlier.

    Franc (CHF)

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    08.12.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The labor market figures signal that the Fed interest rates increase on December 16th is quite possible. 509 thousand of new jobs have been created in the US economy, the average earnings increased by 0.6%. Such data can be regarded as inflationary which allows the FED to increase the discount rate since 2006.

    The pair euro/dollar has shown a relative stability after the US last week important release, feeling the support after the ECB meeting results when the regulator limited the deposit rate decrease and prolonged the buying assets program for seven months. The Germany good data supported the euro as well: the industrial orders sharply recovered by 1.8% m/m after 0.7% decrease the previous month.

    The Sterling is very much pinned downwards (the price has fallen down by 3.3% for the last month). There is one week before the US Federal Reserve meeting now it is the time for an upward correction. The commodity market instability is supporting the US dollar which also had a negative impact on the pound.

    Japan has reported about the average wage size increase by 0.7% in annual terms which exceeded the traders’ expectations. The wage growth is an inflation indicator which has traditionally a positive impact on the national currency. However, investors ignored the positive release - the Japanese yen strong strengthening did not happen that indicates the strong buyers presence. The pair dollar/yen showed a growth by the end of the trades.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    Monday was not rich in important macroeconomic events. We highlight the October Germany industrial production. The Markit PMI indicator is showing moderately positive trend. Considering the previous month low base we expect the industrial production volume growth. Nevertheless, the data came out less then forecasted 0,7% at the level of 0,2%.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.0800, the next one is 1.0730. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.0925, the next one is at 1.1050.

    There is a confirmed and a strong buy signal. The price is above the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a positive territory. The price is correcting.

    Trading recommendations

    The pair can grow to the resistance level of 1.0925. After breaking 1.0925 the buyers may go to 1.1050.



    Pound (GBP)

    General overview

    The UK government bond yields significantly grew relative to their US and Germany counterparts which increased the investment attractiveness into the British assets and supported the pound. In the absence of the UK releases and important events the pair dynamics was mainly driven by technical factors and the dollar general partial recovery.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.5040, the next one is at 1.4970. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5100, the next one is at 1.5150.

    There is a non-confirmed and a weak sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement and form a “Golden Cross”. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a positive territory. The price is correcting.

    Trading recommendations

    After the resistance level of 1.5100 breakthrough upwards the way to the resistance 1.5150 will be opened.



    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    The Japanese currency showed some attempts to strengthen, but it could not get full support from the Japanese consumer confidence data. The November confidence indicator rose to 42.6 from 41.5 while analysts had expected the more modest improvement to 41.8.

    The price is finding the first support at 123.20, the next one is 122.40. The price is finding the first resistance at 123.80, the next one is at 124.30.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    09.12.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The Eurozone GDP third quarter data was published: 0,3% q/q and 1,6 y/y. The September household spending and industrial production reports came out negative. The unemployment rate fell to 0.3% in the period from July to September, but the positive macroeconomic effect will manifest itself with a time lag and the Old World economy will not get high dividends in the third quarter. The pair EUR/USD slightly increased by the end of the trades.

    The UK October industrial production data was published. The Markit manufacturing sector business climate pointed to the positive output data. The PMI has reached the highest level for the last 16 months in October amid the industrial output growth. According to the Industrialists British Confederation, we should not count on the industrial production significant growth because of the industrial orders negative balance. The release showed a growth by 0,1% according to the forecasted median. However, the pair GBP/USD closed the trades with a decrease.

    The October current account transactions release pleased traders with the strong data. The Japanese and the US differential government bond yields have declined which increased the investments’ attractiveness in the Japanese assets. Traders were cutting "risky assets" positions supporting demand for the yen as a funding currency. The dollar/yen decreased by the end of the day.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    The single European currency has entered the correction phase for several days. In addition to the European stock market rally, the Germany industrial production weak data pressure the euro quotes. The November index rebounded to + 0.2% m/m, after a decline by 1.1%, but it did not meet market expectations at the level of + 0.7%. At the same time the annual value fell to 0.0% from 0.2%. The Sentix investors’ sentiment report disappointed the euro - the index was 15.7 against the expected 17.0 points.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.0800, the next one is 1.0730. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.0925, the next one is at 1.1050.

    There is a confirmed and a strong buy signal. The price is above the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a positive territory. The price is growing.

    Trading recommendations

    We believe the growth will be continued now. The first target is the level 1.3670, the next one is 1.1050.



    Pound (GBP)

    General overview

    The UK government bond yields fell relative to their US and Germany counterparts reducing the British assets investments’ attractiveness. The pair fell not only because of the dollar purchases, but also because of the Bank of England Governor Mark Carney speech who ultimately did not say any important market comments.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.4970, the next one is at 1.4900. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5040, the next one is at 1.5100.

    The price is in the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows an upward movement.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is consolidating.

    Trading recommendations

    If the price fixates below the support 1.4970, it may continue the downward trend in the short term. The potential target is 1.4900.



    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    The pair dynamics remains bearish. Japan pleased traders with the positive macroeconomic statistics. Initially, the yen was pressured by the Bank of Japan Kuroda comments who pointed to the QQE program effectiveness. He also promised to take further measures to ensure financial stability. Despite the dollar growth, the price growth was limited.

    The price is finding the first support at 122.40, the next one is 121.30. The price is finding the first resistance at 123.20, the next one is at 123.80.

    The price is in the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement and form a “Golden Cross”.

    The MACD indicator is in a neutral territory. The price is growing.

    Trading recommendations

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    10.12.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The euro zone GDP has not been revised for any changes - the third quarter growth was 0.3%. The real GDP has amounted to 7357.9 billion euros for the first nine months of this year which is 1.79% higher than in the same period in 2014. The Germany October trade balance report has been published: 20,8B against the forecasted 20,0B. The euro index strengthened by 1.2% in the third quarter. By the end of the trades on Wednesday the pair euro/dollar increased.

    The British currency is demonstrating weakness. The pound did not update the December 2nd low (1.4893) which fits into the corrective scenario. The UK government bond yields declined relative to their US and Germany counterparts, reducing the investments’ attractiveness into the British assets. The trades on the pair pound/dollar closed with the British currency growth.

    Japan updated the third quarter GDP, the indicator was revised from -0.2% to 0.3%. The Japanese yen has increased amid the lack of the US important macroeconomic statistics. The lack of investors' risk appetite played into the “bears" hands. The market is trading in anticipation of the FOMC meeting on December 15-16. The pair dollar/yen sharply fell by the end of the trades.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    The Eurozone third quarter GDP final data did not move the euro as the result coincided with the forecasts and with the preliminary estimate which does not look impressive. The region economy grew by 0.3% q/q and 1.6% y/y in the last quarter. The euro received the main support from the purchases as a funding currency amid the risk aversion that put pressure on the stock indices.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.0925, the next one is 1.0800. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.1050, the next one is at 1.1150.

    There is a confirmed and a strong buy signal. The price is above the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show an upward movement. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a positive territory. The price is growing.

    Trading recommendations

    If the price fixates below the support 1.0925, it may continue the downward trend in the short term. The potential target is 1.0800.



    Pound (GBP)

    General overview

    The US ambiguous statistics remained practically unnoticed. Last month the industrial production volume increased by 0.1% m/m and 1.7% y/y, having exceeded the forecast by 0.0% and 1.2% respectively. Meanwhile, the manufacturing sector production declined by 0.4% m/m and 0.1% y/y, having confound expectations of 0.0% and 0.1%.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.5150, the next one is at 1.5100. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5200, the next one is at 1.5300.

    There is a confirmed and a strong buy signal. The price is above the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show an upward movement. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a posiive territory. The price is growing.

    Trading recommendations

    We recommend going short with the first target – 1.5150. When the price consolidates below the first target it may go to the level 1.5100.



    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    The Japanese GDP final annual rate was sharply revised upwards to 1.0% against a decline by 0.8% previously and the modest forecast by 0.1% in the third quarter. The yen purchases were caused by the escape from risky assets as well as the Japanese favorable data.

    The price is finding the first support at 122.40, the next one is 121.30. The price is finding the first resistance at 123.20, the next one is at 123.80.

    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a downward movement and form a “Dead Cross. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is decreasing.

    Trading recommendations

    We suppose the pair will go to 122.40 first. Having overcome the first target the price might go upwards to 123.20.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    11.12.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The US published jobless claims report. According to the US Labor Department the initial jobless claims number became more than forecasted 269 thousand having increased to 282 thousand. We believe that the EUR/USD pair correctional phase has approached to its end. The United States pleased traders with the retail sales strong data cheering "bears" to short. The US and the Germany government bond yields have grown which increased the investment’ attractiveness in the US assets. Markets expect that the FOMC will raise its key rate by 0.25% on December 16th which strengthened the Fed and the ECB monetary policy divergence that will contribute to the single European currency reduction. The pair euro/dollar showed a decrease by the end of the trades yesterday.

    The UK government bond yields rose relative to their US and Germany counterparts which supported the demand for the British assets. The Bank of England monetary policy meeting has been held. The UK inflation has been 0.16% for the first ten months of this year which is 0.62% less than in the same period in 2014. The labor market is showing a stable positive dynamics at the same time: the unemployment rate for the first three quarters of this year decreased by 0.4% to the mark of 5.3% while the average earnings growth for the third quarter amounted to 3% in annual terms. The pair pound/dollar slightly decreased.

    The Japanese and the US differential government bond yields increased the investment’ attractiveness into the US assets supporting the demand for the dollar. The high-tech sector was the decline leader in the North American and European equity markets and the growth leader was the "protective" communal sector. However after a short-term growth the pair dollar/yen decreased.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    The euro short-term correction cycle is coming to its logical conclusion. The pair EUR/USD proved to be one of the major beneficiaries of the risky assets sales, connected with the commodities market collapse. The pair was also supported by the Germany trade balance data. The November trade surplus amounted to 20.8 billion euros in the Eurozone largest country against the forecast of 20 billion and the previous value at the level of 19.2 billion.

    We may expect the trades in a flat between the resistance level of 1.5200 and the support level of 1.5150.



    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    The downward trend is continued amid the "risk assets" positions cutting. The pair USD/JPY fell victim to the yen status as a safe-haven currency.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    15.12.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    Still the US macroeconomic data is encouraging. Despite the commodity market sales, the November PPI was better than the consensus forecast. The retail sales report was in line with the traders’ expectations, still the "control group" indicator which is closely correlated with the PCE index came in at 0.2% higher than the consensus forecast. The indicator had risen to 0.8% for the first two months of the fourth quarter which forms a stable foundation for the quarterly GDP strong data.

    The euro is in demand as a funding currency before the FED meeting. The October euro zone industrial production release has come out at the level of 0,6% against the forecasted 0,3%. The manufacturing sector PMI came in within the consensus forecast. The negative factor for the European industry was the euro strengthening by 4.2% in the second and third quarter which caused the products competitiveness decrease. The ECB President Draghi supported the bond purchases program on Monday. In addition, he noted that the regulator was ready to use all the policy instruments to achieve the price stability. The pair euro/dollar increased by the end of the day.

    The lack of the US and the UK important macroeconomic statistics drew our attention to the debt and commodity markets. The UK and the US government bond yields showed a moderate reduction. The oil and industrial metals ended the trading week in a red zone. The markets may remain volatile till the FED meeting on December 16th. The pair pound/dollar decreased.

    The Japan manufacturing sector is now experiencing some difficulties amid the Chinese economic growth slowdown as well as the new orders reduction. It is impossible to ignore the world leading stock exchanges sales. The pair dollar/yen continued the decrease.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    17.12.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The Markit published the December German manufacturing sector business climate report. Tha data came out at the forecasted median at the level of 53,0. The indicator has been growing for two months amid the euro weakening which has strengthened the German products competitiveness abroad. The US Federal Reserve monetary policy decision drew the market attention yesterday. The FOMC raised its rate by 0.25% to 0.50% having noted the strong upward trend in the labor market. When the oil market stabilizes –the US population income growth will put upward pressure on inflation expectations. The pair euro/dollar decreased by the end of the trades.

    The UK and the US inflation releases determined the "bulls" and "bears" battle results. The UK inflation showed 0.08% against 0.77% in 2015. The inflation dynamics was not in favor of the United Kingdom the previous month: the US CPI growth rate was 0.16% against 0.74% for the ten months. The UK National Statistics Office published the labor market release. The average wages level gained 2.4% instead of the forecasted 2.5%, while the unemployment rate rose by 5.2% when the forecast was 5.3%. The pair pound/dollar fell by the end of the day.

    The world's leading stock markets corrected after massive sales. The short-term uptrend is continued putting pressure on the Japanese yen as a funding currency. The dollar index basket dynamics (USDX) pointed to the US currency phase correction which is over now and now we expect the further long-term uptrend. The pair dollar/yen showed a growth.

On the other hand, the British producers’ prices disappointed traders: the PPI base index fell by 0.2% m/m and 0.1% y/y vs. 0.0% and 0.1% respectively.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis.

    18.12.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The Fed raised the key interest rates for the first time since 2006. The GDP and the unemployment long term forecasts were moderately revised towards the positive direction, on the other hand, the inflation rate was moderately revised towards the negative direction. The US dollar revaluation had a negative impact on exporters, so that the third quarter negative trade balance amounted to 133.7 billion dollars which is 6.21% more than in the same period in 2014. The US published the number of jobless claims report for the last week. The data came out at the level of 271 thousand; the forecasted median was 275 thousand.

    The IFO Institute published the December Germany business sentiment index which came out at the level of 108.7. The pair euro/dollar showed a decrease.

    The British currency has ignored the inflation and the employment moderately positive data. The retail sales forecasted medians were higher in November that supported the pound. The October average earnings report showed the growth rate slowdown which is a negative factor for the retail sector. The UK consumer confidence index fell to 1p in November which had been the lowest level for five months. There was a decrease in the pair GBP/USD.

    The US and the Japanese government bond yields have increased after the FOMC decision to raise interest rates which increased the investment attractiveness into the US assets and contributed to the dollar demand. The low energy prices have forced the Bank of Japan to revise its inflation forecasts. The Japanese November trade balance report has already been published: 0.0 trillion yen from 0.20 trillion yen. The pair dollar/yen was growing.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis.

    22.12.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The economic calendar is empty, there was not published any interesting macroeconomic statistics. In this regard, the EUR/USD course is determined by the debt and equity markets dynamics. The US and the German government bond yields showed a growth which increased the US assets investment’ attractiveness supporting the demand for the greenback. The equity markets long positions and high-yield cross rates pointed out to the lack of "risk appetite" among investors. However, after a decrease the pair euro/dollar strengthened.

    The GBP/USD bears have taken a breath. The UK government bond yields have grown in relation to their US and Germany counterparts which increased the investments’ attractiveness into the British assets. The Cable could not realize even a deep correction - investors have opened short positions that have caused a new round of the prices decline. The pair pound/dollar was trading in a flat.

    The USD/JPY quotations showed moderate decrease after the "risky assets" escape. Investors closed their longs which supported the demand for the yen as a funding currency. The "protective" utilities sector was the growth leader in the US stock market, still the financial sector and the basic materials’ sector showed a decline. Such positioning points out to the pessimism growth. The Bank of Japan indicated the inflation expectations decline because of the hydrocarbon low prices which is a negative factor for the yen. After a decrease the pair dollar/yen was trading in a side corridor.



    Technical analysis

    Euro

    General overview

    The November Germany producer price index showed the biggest annual fall in nearly six years, mainly due to lower energy prices.

    General overview

    The British currency was not able to take advantage of the dollar widespread weakening in Asian session.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis.

    23.12.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The market attention was focused on the US statistics. The third quarter final GDP data was expected not be revised downwards and would remain at the same level as it was noted in the second release. The strong labor market helped the private consumption to increase which is a welcome factor for the US economy. However the data came out at he level of 2% against the forecasted 1,9%. The secondary market home sales data can also be a pleasant surprise. The November mortgage lending volume was 1.26% compared to the previous month that indicates that the real estate sales increase, both primary and secondary markets. However the data came out at the level of 4,47M against the forecasted 5,35%. The pair euro/dollar showed a growth by the end of the trades.

    The key factors point out to the downtrend continuation. Firstly, the US and the UK government bond yield are expanding which increases the investments’ attractiveness into the US assets and it will contribute to the dollar demand. Secondly, the Brent crude is now trading near the 11-year low which is also a positive factor for the US dollar as the raw materials cost denominated in dollars. The pair GBP/USD decreased by the en of the trades.

    The pair USD/JPY declined again, having continued last Friday's decline, although at a slower pace. Initially, all Japanese economic sectors activity index report which grew by 1.0% after decline by 0.2% supported the yen.



    Technical analysis

    Euro

The Bundesbank governor Weidman comments also supported the EUR/USD. The governor hopes the Eurozone economic recovery to accelerate next year. The Germany import prices report has been published (-0.2% m/m vs. -0.3% m/m) and the consumer confidence report showed 9.4 vs. 9.30.

    The price is in the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement and form a “Golden Cross”.

    The MACD indicator is in a positive territory. The price is growing.

    Trading recommendations

    We suppose the pair will go to 1.0925 first. Having overcome the first target the price might go downwards to 1.0800.



    Pound

    General overview

    The British currency is quite sensitive to the oil prices further decline, preventing the pair recovery even in conditions of the fading interest in the dollar purchases. Another negative factor was the British Industry Confederation retail trade report where the sales balance amounted to 19 against the expected 21, still it has grown significantly in comparison with the previous value of 7.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.4760, the next one is at 1.4700. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.4830, the next one is at 1.4900.

    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a downward movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

    Yen

    General overview

    The US secondary market housing sales data can make a pleasant surprise. The November mortgage lending growth was 1.26% compared to the previous month that indicates the real estate sales increase, both primary and secondary markets.

    The first support resides at 120.40, the next one is 119.20. The first resistance stands at 121.30, the next one is at 122.40.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis.

    24.12.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    Despite the lack of the growth drivers the Euro has strengthened its position. The world leading stock markets have showed a corrective growth. The EUR/USD pair showed a growth amid the inflation and economic growth pessimistic expectations. The United States published a block of important macroeconomic statistics. The employment and the average earnings increase has caused the world largest economy consumer activity growth. Nevertheless the published releases disappointed the market. The durable goods base orders in November came out at the level of -0,1% (m/m) against the forecasted 0,1%(m/m), the new home sales in November came out at the level of 490K against the forecasted 505K. By the end of the trades the pair EUR/USD slightly decreased.

    The UK National Statistics Office published the third quarter payments balance. The pound revaluation against the euro contributed to the trade deficit increase as British goods reduced their competitiveness abroad. At the end of the third quarter the negative net exports amounted to 31.97 billion pounds which is 20.2% more than in the second quarter and is higher by 0.53% than in the same period of 2014. The seasonal factor also indicates the negative balance increase: capital outflows from the United Kingdom. The third quarter the UK GDP came in lower then it was forecasted: 0,4% (q/q) and 2,1% (y/y) against 0,5% (q/q) and 2,3% (y/y). The pair GBP/USD closed the trades with a slight decrease.

    Japanese banks were closed on the occasion of the national holiday that caused the sluggish trade. The financial sector was the growth leader in the European and the North American stock markets as indicates the investors' risk appetite presence and thus put pressure on the Japanese yen as a funding currency. The US GDP final data for the third quarter came out slightly better than the consensus forecast at the level of 2% which contributed to the US and Japanese government bond yields. A slight decrease was noted in the pair USD/JPY.



    Technical analysis


    Euro

    General overview

    The Germany statistics has been showed that the consumer confidence index rose up to 9.4 against the forecast and the previous value at the level of 9.3. The November import prices report supported the euro. The US secondary housing market sales sharp decline has led to the dollar sales. However the dollar strengthened against the euro by the end of the trades on Wednesday.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.0925, the next one is 1.0800. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.1050, the next one is at 1.1150.

    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement and form a “Golden Cross’. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a positive territory. The price is correcting.

    Trading recommendations

    The potential decrease targets are two levels of support: 1.0800 and 1.0730.




    Pound

    General overview

    The UK data pointed out to the net borrowing volume growth to £ 13.5 billion against the forecast of 11.0 billion and the previous value of 6.7 billion. The US GDP report has demonstrated the US currency vulnerability. The US second homes sales index was weak which has supported the pound.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.4830, the next one is at 1.4760. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.4900, the next one is at 1.4970.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is decreasing.

    Trading recommendations

    We believe the consolidation will be continued now. Then we suppose the pair will go to 1.4900 first. Having overcome the first target the price might go upwards to 1.4970.




    Yen

    General overview

    The Japanese economic calendar was empty due to the public holiday. The market focused on the US durable goods basic orders and the new home sales data in November 490K against the forecasted 505K and -0,1% (m/m) against the forecasted 0,1%(m/m) respectively.

    The first support resides at 120.40, the next one is 119.20. The first resistance stands at 121.30, the next one is at 122.40.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is decreasing.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis.

    28.12.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The Euro ignored the negative background amid the increasing demand for the "risk assets" - the world leading stock markets showed growth from 2% to 4%. The US published the third quarter GDP moderately positive macroeconomic data, durable goods orders, personal consumption expenditure and the new buildings sales; however, it did not bring the desired dividends to the dollar. On Thursday the German banks were closed, the US trading session ended few hours earlier. The trades on the pair EUR/USD closed with a growth. There were not any trades on Friday. The whole Western world celebrated Christmas, the most important holiday of the year.

    The UK National statistics office revised the UK GDP second estimate for the third quarter from 0.5% to 0.4%. The economic growth rate has been 2.4% for the first nine months, compared to the same period last year. There was the UK clear economic slowdown. The construction and manufacturing sectors were the most vulnerable sectors which decreased by 1.93% and 0.22% respectively in the third quarter of this year. The US third quarter GDP growth also slowed down. Last year the UK was ahead the United States by 0.5% and this year it falls short by 0.1%. The UK government bond yields are growing relative to their US and Germany counterparts which increases the investments’ attractiveness in the British assets. The commodity market prices stabilization is also plays into the "bulls" hands now. The pair pound/dollar increased by the end of the trades.

    The important macroeconomic releases that could act as a driver for the dollar or the yen have not been published. In general, the United States pleased traders with the positive macroeconomic statistics, but investors have completely ignored the positive news background which indicates the lack of interest in the dollar. The BoJ Governor Kuroda confirmed the Bank commitment to do what it was necessary to overcome the deflation, planning to achieve the 2% inflation target. The pair dollar/yen closed the trades with a decrease.



    Technical analysis


    Euro

    General overview

    The number of the US initial jobless claims amounted to 267K while 270K was forecasted . The investors’ increased optimism put pressure on the euro as a funding currency.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.0925, the next one is 1.0800. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.1050, the next one is at 1.1150.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis.
    29.12.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The major pairs were traded without significant drivers. The pair EUR/USD showed the bullish sentiment on Monday. Last week, investors completely ignored the positive news flow on the US dollar which indicates the strong buyers presence. The important macroeconomic statistics is not expected before the NY and the bulls are trying to disperse the quotes up on less liquid markets. The trades on the pair euro/dollar closed with a growth.

    The pound remained under pressure amid a general distancing prospects of the Bank of England rate hike. Traders expected it to happen in the first quarter of next year. However, the weak UK statistics brought some changes in the forecasts. The UK published the secondary housing market report - according to the BBA, the number of approved mortgage loans fell to 44,960 from 45,463 vs. 46,200 in the country. The pair pound/dollar fell by the end of the trades.

    The initial catalyst for the yen strengthening was the Kuroda's comments where he expressed confidence that the economy was on track to achieve the 2% target level of consumer prices. However, he made it clear that the regulator would continue to stay within the QQE framework. The pair dollar/yen showed a slight decrease amid this background.



    Technical analysis

    Euro

    General overview

    The US labor market strong data did not make much of an impression on prices. Last week, the initial claims number dropped to 267 thousand. from 272 thousand earlier. Traders expected 270 thousand. There were no important releases from the EU. The overseas economic releases show positive figures, the Fed may accelerate the monetary policy normalization if the current trend is continued.

    The first support lies at 1.0925 and then at 1.0800. The first resistance stands at 1.1050, the next one is at 1.1150.

    There is a confirmed and a strong buy signal. The price action is above the Cloud and is heading upwards. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show an upward movement forming a “Golden Cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud. Ichimoku Cloud is neutral now.

    The MACD indicator is in a positive territory. The price is correcting.

    Trading recommendations

    The pair could escalate up to 1.1050. Alternatively, we expect the EUR/USD to fall to 1.0925.




    Pound

    General overview

    There was a Boxing Day holiday on Monday in the UK. The Sterling recovered after the third quarter UK payment balance optimistic report. Last week the UK government bonds grew in relation to their US and Germany counterparts which increases the Cable investment attractiveness and thereby support the demand for the pound.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.4830, the next one is at 1.4760. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.4900, the next one is at 1.4970.

    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price continued to advance south. The Sterling is below the Ichimoku Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement forming a “Golden Cross”. The downward movement will be until the price is below the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a neutral territory. The price is decreasing.

    Trading recommendations


    Technically, the main trend is down. The upcoming news won’t be able to drive the Forex pair lower. We see the level of 1.4970 as the first growth target if the pair keeps its north direction. Shall the pair return to a fall we shall see it at the level of 1.4830 soon.




    Yen

    General overview

    Japan has published a series of statistical reports for November: the preliminary industrial production data came in at -1.0% m/m vs. 1.4% m/m (the forecast was 0.6%); the retail sales volume came in at -1.0% y/y vs. 1.8% y/y (the forecast was 0.6%).

    The first support resides at 119.20, the next is at 118.40. The first resistance stands at 120.40, the next one is at 121.30.

    The indicator shows a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and we expect its further decline. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a downward movement. The downward movement will be until the price is below the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is decreasing.

    Trading recommendations

    We suppose the decrease will be continued now. The targets are the levels 119.20 and 118.40. We do not exclude the growth to 120.40 and 121.30.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis.

    30.12.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    We highlight the Conference Board consumer confidence report. The December Michigan University indicator showed growth against the strong labor market background, allowing to calculate the Conference Board positive data output. The data came out at the level of 96,5p. that is better then forecasted 93,0p.

    The stock exchange showed some pessimism: the banking sector became the decline leaders. This factor supported the demand for the euro as a funding currency. The trade is still sluggish due to the low-liquid market. However the pair EUR/USD slightly fell.

    London bank reopened its doors for customers. Given the low liquidity and lack of important macroeconomic statistics, investors pay attention to the commodity market dynamics, especially in the "black gold". The Brent determines the Cable course of trading. The pair GBP/USD closed the trades with a decrease.

    The Japanese macroeconomic statistics once again upset the traders. The statistics showed a personal consumption decrease in November which is a negative factor for the economic growth. The industrial production decreased by 0.3%. However, the Old World and North America leading stock markets pessimism prevails that is a positive environment for safe assets which traditionally includes the Japanese yen. The pair USD/JPY is trading in a flat.




    Technical analysis

    Euro

    General overview

    The ECB Mersch regulator's statements regarding the further monetary policy easing readiness, alongside with the deposit rates decrease did not cause noticeable reaction on the pair, as a matter of fact, the Speaker did not say anything new.

    Pound


    General overview

    The Cable finishes the year near the 7-month low. The Bank of England uncertain position regarding the interest rates hike is a downward movement driver for the Sterling. The Bank is still the "second in line" after the Fed, the time-limit when the Regulator may change the rates is moved significantly, given the weak inflationary pressures, sluggish wage growth, conflicting data on business activity and politicians' cautious statements.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.4760, the next one is at 1.4700. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.4830, the next one is at 1.4900.

    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price continued to advance south. The Sterling is below the Ichimoku Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis.

    04.01.2016

    Fundamental analysis

    There was a mixed trend at the Forex market last trading week of the year, some pairs even showed an increased volatility in their trading. The dollar resumed its growth against its competitors, having received support from the positive sentiment in the stock markets as well as strong data from the US. In general, traders’ activity continued to fall on the eve of the New Year holidays.

    The dollar purchases alongside with the stock markets positive sentiment and favorable statistics from the United States became the driver for the EUR/USD downward dynamics resumption. In particular, prices, contrary to the predictions, kept the growth rate of 5.5% and the consumer confidence in December jumped to 96.5 versus the expected 93.8 and the previous value of the index at 90.4. The recent figures again indicated that the US economy is in great shape and is ready to tighten monetary policy further even more rapid pace.

    As for the pair GBPUSD, the pound decreased amid the Cable fundamental weakness due to the recent sharp deterioration of macroeconomic data (inflation slowdown, the GDP decline), which has taken away from the markets hope for a rate hike by the Bank of England next year. The pair pound/dollar slightly corrected upwards by the end of the trades.

    The USDJPY showed the most restrained dynamics. The pair’s movement is limited by the resistance around 121.30 and the support at 120.40 area. However, even strong statistics from the United States was unable to revive the pair.




    Technical analysis

    Euro

    General overview


    The German government bonds rose relative to their US and the UK counterparts which increases the investments attractiveness in European assets and thereby supports the demand for euro. Nevertheless, the euro slightly fell.

    The first support lies at 1.0800 and then at 1.0730. The first resistance stands at 1.0925, the next one is at 1.1050.

    The price action is in the Ichimoku Cloud. The Tenkan-sen shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement.

    The MACD indicator is in a neutral territory. The price is decreasing.

    Trading recommendations

    When the price consolidates below the level of 1.0925 it may go to the level 1.0800.




    Pound

    General overview

    We see a mixed background of the British currency. The 10-year UK government bonds decline relative to their US and Germany reduces the British assets attractiveness adding a downward pressure on the pound. The Cable situation is worst among the major currencies on the current US dollar corrective phase. The pound increased only by the end of the trades.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.4760, the next one is at 1.4700. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.4830, the next one is at 1.4900.

    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The Sterling is below the Ichimoku Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement forming a “Dead Cross”. The downward movement will be until the price is below the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is correcting.

    Trading recommendations

    We suppose the pair will trade in a flat between the levels of 1.4760-1.4830.



    Yen

    General overview

    The world's leading stock indices show a rising trend alongside with the high-yield cross-rates in the currency market. Such dynamics indicates growth "risk appetite" among investors which is traditionally a negative factor for the yen as a funding currency.

    The first support resides at 120.40, the next is at 119.20. The first resistance stands at 121.30, the next one is at 122.40.

    The indicator shows a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and in under the Chincou-span. The Tenkan-sen shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement. The downward movement will be until the price is below the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is correcting.

    Trading recommendations

    The buyers need to break above 121.30 for a steady growth. The way to the mark 122.40 will be opened after this breakthrough.




    Franc

    General overview

    The franc strengthened against its main rivals. According to forecasts the Switzerland GDP may increase by 1% in 2015 and 1.6% in 2016. The National Bank of Switzerland policy also has a huge impact the franc dynamics. The ongoing EUR/CHF intervention limits the franc growth as well.

    The first support lies at 0.9850 and then at 0.9750. The first resistance stands at 0.9960, the next one is at 1.0100.

    The price action is in the Ichimoku Cloud. The Tenkan-sen shows an upward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement forming a “Golden Cross”.

    The MACD indicator is in a neutral territory. The price is decreasing.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis.

    05.01.2016

    Fundamental analysis

    The last trading day of 2015 was marked by the dollar strengthening against its major rivals. Most of the traders left the market earlier to celebrate the Catholic Christmas and the New Year. The weak US data did not stop the EUR/USD from growth. The weekly unemployment benefits rose by 20K to the mark 287 000. In economic news, the Chicago Fed business activity index came in at 42.9, not much short of the forecast of 49.8.

    In the middle of last week, the ECB reported about the November private sector lending growth, the rate was 1.4% in annual terms which is the highest level in the past year. Monday trading was revived due to the planned statistics. The euro area countries published the manufacturing business activity. Germany surfaced the inflation report: 0,3% y/y and -0,1% m/m against forecasted 0,6% y/y и 0,2% m/m. The Germany PMI in manufacturing business came out at the level 53,2 against forecasted 53,0. The pair euro/dollar closed the trades with a decrease.

    The UK published money supply report 0,4% m/m against the forecasted 0,5% m/m. The Britain PMI in manufacturing business came out at the level 51,9 against forecasted 52,7. The 10-year UK government bonds yield is growing relative to their counterparts from the US and Germany, which supports the demand for the pound. However, the trades on the pair GBP/USD closed with a decrease.

    The US and Japanese government bond yield differential exceeded the level of 200 pp which increases the US assets investment attractiveness. The pair USD/JPY showed a growth by the end of the day.



    Technical analysis

    Euro

    General overview

    The euro lost 10% over the past year while it declined by 12% in 2014. In December, the pair returned a part of the losses due to the November two key Central Banks careful actions - the ECB refrained from a large-scale stimulus, the Fed raised its rate by 0.25%. The fact that the US regulator began the monetary policy normalization while the rest of the world central banks including the ECB continue their soft policy. This factor is likely to continue to provide support to the greenback in the coming year.

    The first support lies at 1.0800 and then at 1.0730. The first resistance stands at 1.0925, the next one is at 1.1050.

    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is below the Ichimoku Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a horizontal movement forming a “Dead Cross”. The downward movement will be until the price is below the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is decreasing.

    Trading recommendations

    The downward movement will be continued. The pair may go to 1.0800 and 1.0730 soon.



    Pound

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis.

    06.01.2016

    Fundamental analysis

    The China stock market drama had a direct impact on the currencies behavior. The China manufacturing sector business activity surfaced the PMI fall to 48.2 vs. expected of 48.9. Ten consecutive month of falling triggered a new wave of concern about the Chinese economy state and its potential impact on global GDP. This fact, coupled with the Middle East conflict escalation where Saudi Arabia broke off diplomatic relations with Iran, provoked a strong wave of risk aversion.

    The December Germany preliminary inflation data showed weak results: 0,2% against the forecasted median 0,3%. The USA statistics is disappointing as well. The manufacturing sector ISM has been below 50% for two consecutive months, indicating a business activity slowdown. The index fell to its lowest level since June 2009 in December. The pair euro/dollar showed a decrease.

    The UK November number of mortgage approvals in 2015 amounted to 70.4 thousand which is 0.77% more than in the previous month and 18.81% more than in November 2014. That is the mortgage market which is the main growth driver in the real estate sector and in view of the above-described positive momentum we expected the construction sector PMI within the consensus forecast which may provide some support for the Cable. The data came out at the level of 57,8 against the forecasted 56,0. However the pair pound/dollar decreased by the end of the trades.

    The world stock indices collapse strengthened safe-haven assets. The main beneficiary was the yen. Still the followed USD buying changed the alignment of forces in the foreign exchange market. Nevertheless, after a slight correction the pair fell again.



    Technical analysis

    Euro

    General overview

    In addition to a dollar general direction movement change the Germany inflation report has brought a bit of negative when the consumer prices growth index slowed to + 0.2% y/y from 0.3% while traders expected it to accelerate to 0.4%. The euro area inflation report was the key event of Tuesday that came out worse then forecasted median. In addition, Germany has surfaced labor market indicators: -14K and -6K.

    The first support lies at 1.0730 and then at 1.0630. The first resistance stands at 1.0800, the next one is at 1.0925.

    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is below the Ichimoku Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen showы a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement. The downward movement will be until the price is below the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is decreasing.

    The potential decrease targets are two levels of support: 1.0630, 1.0550.



    Pound

    General overview

    Neither the British statistics bright data nor the weak US figures did not help the pound which is showing the downward trend still expecting the Bank of England rate hike in the coming year. We expect the Bank of England credit conditions report this week.

    General overview

    The yen rally against the dollar and the euro was stopped on Tuesday when the Chinese stock market started a recovery though traders are still not sure that the Chinese market reached its bottom. The yen still may strengthen expecting the BoJ monetary policy easing in the short term. The United States weak data may support the yen due to risk aversion. The United States published the New York ISM at the level of 716,6.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis.

    07.01.2016

    Fundamental analysis

    Investors keep buying the dollar. Trading volumes are higher than in the same days last year. The euro area employment data pleased traders. The Spain unemployed number decreased by 55.8 thousand. vs. expected of 52.6 thousand. The same index is 55.8 thousand in Germany. The forecast was 52.6 thousand. The pair euro/dollar showed a slight growth.

    The UK debt market is now set against the bulls: the 10-year UK government bonds yield is reduced relative to their US and Germany counterparts reducing the Cable investments attractiveness. By the end of the trades the pair pound/dollar decreased.

    Now investors are more alarmed of the Chinese economy state than six months ago, having started buying the dollar. China conducted a currency intervention at 19.9 billion dollars to support the yuan. The operation was a success - the dollar fell from 6.54 yuan to 6.52. As about the pair dollar/yen – it showed a slight decrease.

    The commodity currencies again suffered from the Chinese economy weak data releases. Australian and New Zealand dollars fell most of all.




    Technical analysis

    Euro

    General overview

    We noted the bearish sentiment prevalence. The weak November euro area inflation data contributed to the US and Germany government bonds growth reducing the investments attractiveness in European assets putting pressure on the single European currency. The trades were determined by the services ISM (55,3 against the forecasted median 56,0) and the US Energy Department releases (-5,085М against the forecasted median 0,439М).

    The first support lies at 1.0730 and then at 1.0630. The first resistance stands at 1.0800, the next one is at 1.0925.

    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The price is below the Ichimoku Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement. The downward movement will be until the price is below the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is correcting.

    Trading recommendations

    After the support level of 1.0730 breakthrough down the way to the support 1.0630 will be opened.




    Pound

    General overview

    The published positive construction sector PMI was unable to provide strong support for the pound. That is a signal of the strong sellers presence. The Markit published the third report - this time we got the service sector data. This indicator has been showing the moderate growth for the last two months, however, if we want to see a strong demand for the pound the indicator final value should be higher than 56.6 n. The release came in at the level of 55,5 that put pressure on the pound.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.4560, the next one is at 1.4480. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.4630, the next one is at 1.4700.

    There is a confirmed and a strong sell signal. The Sterling is below the Ichimoku Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen and the Kijun-sen show a downward movement. The downward movement will be until the price is below the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is decreasing.

    Trading recommendations

    The downward movement will be continued. The pair may go to 1.4560 soon. The next target is the level of 1.4480.



    Yen

    General overview

    The lack of "risk appetite" among investors continues to contribute to the Japanese yen demand as a funding currency. The high-yield cross-rates have been showing weakness from the beginning of the trading week. We believe traders are not interesting in new carry trade orders.

    The first support resides at 118.40, the next is at 117.20. The first resistance stands at 119.20, the next one is at 120.40.

    The indicator shows a strong sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and in under the Chincou-span. The Tenkan-sen shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement. The downward movement will be until the price is below the Cloud.

    The MACD indicator is in a negative territory. The price is consolidating.

    Trading recommendations

    We may expect the flat trades between the levels of 118.40 and 119.20.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis.

    08.01.2016

    Fundamental analysis

    There was a quite volatile trading day yesterday. The dollar showed mixed dynamics against its major rivals. Traders still do not prefer to risk as they do have concerns to worry about. They are global economy slowdown, low oil price and the Chinese economy.

    Soft Fed meeting minutes weakened the US currency. The regulator expressed his concerns about the inflation, the strong dollar which triggered the greenback sales. The US published the initial jobless clams (277 000 against the forecasted 275 000).

    The euro got some support after the risky assets sales. However, the US strong labor market data gave new strength to the dollar. According to ADP, the December private sector employment level increased by 257 thousand. These figures are much higher than the forecast and the previous value of 192 thousand. However after the USA new statistics the pair euro/dollar strengthened.

    A series of weak economic data postpones the Bank of England rate hike which exacerbates the divergence rate of the BoE and the Fed. That is another long-term negative factor for the Sterling. The trades closed with the pair GBP/USD decrease.

    The USD/JPY accelerated its decline after the Fed meeting minutes’ publication. The price moved further down. The risk factor always plays into the Japanese yen hands.



    Technical analysis


    Euro

    The strong dollar does not leave the choice to the pound which has to develop the downward momentum. The EUR/GBP dynamics played the negative role for the Cable having grown within the day.

    Franc

    General overview

    The Swiss franc rose against the dollar on the wave of the total US currency sales after the FOMC protocols publication. Meanwhile, the Fed's representative Fisher predicts that the rate will be increased by 4 times in 2016. He noted that the Fed currently has no information how many times the rate would be changed in 2016. However, the Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank raised its GDP growth forecast in Q4 on Wednesday.

    The first support resides at 0.9960, the next is at 0.9850. The first resistance stands at 1.0100, the next one is at 1.0190.
