    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    03.07.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The EUR/USD fell after the US positive business climate report in the manufacturing sector. The index has risen to its highest level in the past five months, indicating to the USA economic growth acceleration. The pair slightly increased by the end of the day.

    The GBP/USD ends two trading days in a row at "minor note." The British currency came under a wave of sales after the negative UK manufacturing sector PMI publication. The long-term interest rates growth has a negative impact on the mortgage market. The mortgage loans approved applications number decreased in May by 3.1 thousand, while the mortgage is the main growth driver in the construction sector.

    The pair USD/JPY fell amid the risky assets demand. However the pair decreased amid the dollar weakness.

    The dollar consolidated when investor strengthened in the opinion that the Fed will raise the interest rates before the end of this year. The ADP National Employment Report showed that the June new jobs number in the US private sector was 237,000 vs. the forecast - 218,000.

    We got the ambiguous statistics from the USA: on the one hand the unemployment fell from 5.5 to 5.3%. The initial jobless claims number rose by 10,000, reaching 281,000. The NFP amounted 223,000, the previous index was above 250,000.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    Every day we get a lot of conflicting information about the situation with the "Greek debt." Every day the market is got excited by various rumors, still Greece held a popular referendum on July 5 and parties again sit down at the negotiating table on 6 July. Until that time, we should not pay attention to the publication.

    Besides the Greek debt issue another worth mentioning this week event was the June USA NFP. The NFP showed 223K, with previous 250K. The unemployment fell from 5.5% to 5.3. The Initial Jobless Claims is 281000 versus previous 271000. This Friday the US markets are closed amid the Independence Day.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    06.07.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The market was relatively quiet at the end of last week - the major pairs were traded in narrow ranges, despite the US labor market publication which traditionally caused the volatility surge. The labor market report as a whole is positive - the unemployment rate fell to the level of 5.3%, the Non-Farm figure was 223 thousand. It is slightly worse than the median forecast, still the report is above 200 thousand. The average earnings index disappointed traders with the data worse than the consensus forecast, which will restrain the inflation growth.

    Investors continue to monitor the situation with Greece. Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras proposed a compromise to extent the financial assistance program. Meanwhile, Tsipras continued to call on the citizens to vote against the proposed measures by creditors.

    The EUR/USD increased and the pair GBP/USD fell at the end of the week. The pair USD/JPY fell amid the risky assets demand.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    07.07.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The major pairs were in the narrow ranges. Monday the pair EUR/USD opened with a gap downwards, but it had increased. However, it lost its positions by the end of the day. We have received the May euro zone sales positive data. The index rose by 0.2% that indicates the consumer spending growth and a positive factor for the economy.

    The euro was declining the whole day in response to the Greece referendum results which further increases the full-scale default likelihood in the country and its exit from the euro zone. Greeks convincingly voted "no" to the EU creditors' offer and with only 38.69% of the Greeks having supported the bailout offer.

    The pair GBP/USD had decreased amid the UK bond yields reduction because of the oil market sales. Nevertheless the pound grew by the end of the day

    By the end of the day the pair USD/JPY had decreased amid the bearish sentiment on the global equity markets. Investors closed their positions after the Greece referendum.

    event has defined the euro/dollar dynamics in the short term. Now it can be concluded that the parties will reach a compromise.

    The two-week downward trend encountered the resistance at the level of 1.1050. The short-term trend line testing and breakthrough was amid the low volumes and was followed by the rebound upwards. The gap (the price gap) gives an additional signal towards the prices growth. The gap as covered.

    Pound (GBP)

    General overview

    The market was opened with a gap amid the Greece national referendum results, but the gap size was smaller than in the pair EUR/USD. The UK service sector business activity release came out positive on Friday, but if we look at the quarter dynamics, there we can see a smooth slowdown. In this regard, the Bank of England forecasts about the high economic growth in the second quarter can be called into question.

    The course of the trades was determined by the global stock markets sentiments. In case of the "Greek debt" positive decision - the stock markets will show an upward trend and the pair dollar/yen will enjoy a steady demand amid the carry trade transactions opening. Otherwise, we expect the sales waves amid the carry trade transactions closure and demand for the Japanese yen as a funding currency.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    08.07.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The pair euro/dollar started the week with the price gap near the level of 1.0980 amid the negative Greek referendum results, concerning the anti-crisis plan. But after the US ISM service sector publication bulls managed to recover some of the losses. As a result, the tool closed the day with a decrease.

    Due to the negative US statistics, the pair pound/dollar was able to fix its growth. However the pair decreased by the end of the day and closed the trades in the “red zone”.

    The pair dollar/yen has finished the day with the negative sentiment. Investors escaped from the risky assets, giving preference to the "safe Japanese currency".

    The Greeks refused to accept the creditors offer in the referendum, concerning conditions for obtaining new loans. Thus, the Greece exit from the European Union risk has been intensified that put pressure on the European currency. According to the voting results 61% of citizens said "no" in the referendum.

    The EU leaders meeting took place on Tuesday in Brussels. The purpose of the meeting was to give an adequate assessment to the referendum results and consider next steps in the negotiations that were stopped after the referendum results. As we know the meeting ended inconclusively, as the Athens has not shown any proposals how to overcome the crisis.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    Germany submitted the May release, concerning the industrial production. The data is expected within forecasts despite the fact that the production orders growth at the end of March and April indicates the production capacity increase, but the PMI indicator dynamics indicates the minimal growth. The data constituted 0.0%, while it was forecasted 0.1%.

    Still the Greek problem solution was the main event of the day. The European leaders meeting results became known during the American session. The Athens will present their proposals on June, 8.

    The price has been consolidating around 1.1050 for a long time. The price decreased to 1.0925 at the yesterday’s trades. This level could advance the sellers upwards.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.0925, the next one is 1.0790. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.1050, the next one is at 1.1150.

    Trading recommendations

    The downward movement will be continued. The pair may go to 1.0925 soon. After breaking 1.0925 the sellers may go to 1.0790, 1.0670.



    Pound (GBP)

    General overview

    The bearish sentiments are prevailing in this instrument. According to the National Statistics Office industrial production release – the May industrial production PMI index had been showing a negative trend since April till June. The pound growth against the euro negatively affected the British exports.

    We should also pay attention to the oil market sales- the Brent crude oil is trading below $ 60 / barrel. It is a negative signal for the pound as the energy sector accounts about 10% of the US GDP.

    The pound has been correcting for three weeks against the US dollar. The trading volumes are gradually forming a divergence at the lower prices, indicating the sellers fading power.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.5390, the next one is 1.5300. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5460, the next one is 1.5550.

    Trading recommendations

    When the price consolidates below the level of 1.5460 it may go to the level 1.5390.



    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    The market shares dynamics will set the course of the trades within the pair USD / JPY. It is connected with the Japanese currency peculiarities which is the funding currency for the carry trade transactions. The energy and the bank sectors are among the leaders on the dip. It will put pressure on the stock market. But taking in consideration the oil market sales, we cannot expect the US dollar sharp decline. Obviously, investors will open short-term longs on the dips.

    The price is finding the first support at 121.60, the next one is at 120.40. The price is finding the first resistance at 122.40, the next one is at 123.50.

    Fundamental analysis

    It is known that the EU has set Greece five-day deadline. During this period the country should give creditors new detailed offers package. It was mentioned that otherwise" the EU is ready for Greece exit.

Yellen and in this regard investors have already got all the key landmarks and fully played them out in June.

    Pound (GBP)

    General overview

    As the United Kingdom has not published any important macroeconomic statistics, the market's attention was directed to the US Federal Reserve report, which, as it became known later, introduced nothing new. The Fed is still only gave promises to raise the rate. In addition, the sentiments were determined by the commodity and the bond market dynamics. It is worth noting that now both markets are against the British pound. The commodity market sales increased the dollar position, because the raw materials cost was denominated in the US dollar.

    The pound fell against the dollar that was caused by the GDP negative data ( the manufacturing industry production volume).

    The potential target for the price decline was the support level of 1.5430 where we expect a consolidation with a slight increase.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    13.07.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    There was the risky assets strong recovery at the end of the last week. The oil prices rebound helped the traders to distract from the uncertainty Greek pressing problems that immediately affected the pair EUR/USD dynamics: quotations recorded the growth.

    The pair GBP/USD has increased amid the UK bond yields increase relative to their US and Germany counterparts.

    By the end of the day the pair USD/JPY had increased amid the "risky assets" demand. The upward trend in the world's leading stock markets contributed to the carry trade transactions increase.

    After the London trades closure all investors' attention was focused on the US Federal Reserve chairman speech. On the one hand, the net exports reduction amid the US revaluation and low wage growth, on the other hand, pointed to the lack of Janet Yellen "hawkish" views. As we expected, Janet Yellen did not say anything new. She noted that the economy’s dynamic is indeterminate and the Fed will evaluate the conditions at each meeting.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    There was published the Germany trade balance release that is very encouraging. The net exports are growing quite confident and there is marked their increase in the second quarter. As the trade balance has an important multiplier effect - we expect positive trends on the euro zone labor market.

    Buyers tried to break through above the resistance of 1.1150. The buyer failed to break this level and the price returned below it.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.1050, the next one is 1.0925. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.1150, the next one is at 1.1260.

    There is a non-confirmed and a wael 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 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 correcting.

    Trading recommendations

    We suppose the pair will go to 1.1150 first. Having overcome the first target the price might go upwards to 1.1260.



    Pound (GBP)

    General overview

    The UK National Statistical Office published the May trade balance report. This week the industrial production release indicates that this sector has developed immunity to the pound revaluation against the euro.

    Having broken through the support level of 1.5390, the downward trend line went into the prolonged consolidation. Then the thrice grew and the level of 1.5460 was broken though. After the resistance level of 1.5550 testing the pair rebounded downwards.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.5460, the next one is 1.5390. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5550, the next one is 1.5670.

    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 histogram is in a negative territory. The price is consolidating.

    Trading recommendations

    The pair is close to the strong support level of 1.5460. If the pair breaks it we expect the decrease to 1.5390.



    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    Investors have again "risk appetite" and in the light of this we expect the bullish sentiment. The Old World stock exchanges finish the trades in the "green zone". The banking and the energy sectors were again the leaders in the US market share and in this regard, traders can continue to build carry trade positions.

    Buyers are correcting the price from the support level of 120.40. Its corrective growth was on the lower volumes. The level of 123.50 is a strong resistance for this pair.

    The price is finding the first support at 122.40, the next one is at 121.60. The price is finding the first resistance at 123.50, the next one is at 124.30.

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

    Trading recommendations

    If the price fixates above the resistance level of 123.50, it may continue the upward trend in the short term. The potential target is 124.30.



    Franc (CHF)

    General overview

    The dollar remains within its former range, however, it reduced the number of its achievements when the data publication said that the jobless claims number have increased by 15,000 to 297,000.

    According to the IMF estimates, the global economic growth in 2015 is expected at the level of 3.3% against 3.5% and the growth forecast for 2016 remained at the level of 3.8% against 3.1% in April. The reason for its decline was the "temporary weakness" forecast in the first quarter.

    The price is finding the first support at 0.9370, the next one is at 0.9280. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9540, the next one is at 0.9750.

    We advise to short with the first target - 0.9370. When the pair consolidates below the first target, we can open deals to the level of 0.9280.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    14.07.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The uncertainty around Greece was all last week. EU summit and the Eurogroup meeting continued almost all weekend, but the specific outcome appeared only on Monday. Greece had to compromise and now the parliament must approve the reforms package in exchange for a bailout from the European Union.

    The EUR/USD increased amid the positive "the Greek issue" expectations last week. The Greek government has announced that it is ready to offer a new anti-crisis plan which creditors should make." After the agreement with Greek has been reached, the European currency declined sharply.

    The pair GBP/USD enjoyed a certain demand. The British currency was supported after the May UK trade balance release. However, the pound decreased amid the dollar’s strengthening.

    There was a "bullish" sentiment with the USD/JPY. This is not surprising as the global stock markets perked up after the positive news about the "Greek debt" situation. As a result we had the demand for risky assets.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    Currency market wins back the creditors’ “Greek debt” decision. Despite the various differences between the parties were still able to reach a consensus, which is a positive factor for the euro. There has been a moderate price increase. The upward trend was also observed on the European stock market as the financial risks were mitigated. However, after it became known that Greece has made concessions to the creditors the pair sharply declined

    There was the resistance of 1.1050 breakthrough last week. The breakthrough came in the second times and allowed buyers to deploy a downward trend upward. Also they tested the strong resistance level of 1.1150. The price rebounded downwards from this level and broke down the support level of 1.1050.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.0925, the next one is 1.0790. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.1050, the next one is at 1.1150.

    There is a non-confirmed and a weak sell signal. The price is on the Cloud and it is under the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a horizontal movement and the Kijun-sen shows an upward movement. 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 upward bounce potential target are 1.1050, 1.1150.



    Pound (GBP)

    General overview

    The last week the May UK positive trade balance release allow us to count on the economic growth acceleration in the second quarter which may support the demand for the British currency. Britain and the United States did not publish important macroeconomic statistics. In this regard, attention should be paid to the debt market dynamics.

    The three-day upward correction having formed from the support level of 1.5390 enabled buyers to break the level of 1.5550. There was a price rebound downwards from this level.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.5460, the next one is 1.5390. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5550, the next one is 1.5670.

    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 an upward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a downward movement. The downward movement will be until the price is under the Cloud.

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

    Trading recommendations

    We expect the 1.5550 line break that will open the way for the buyers to 1.5670, further then towards 1.5775.



    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    The course of trading is determined by the world's leading stock exchanges mood. The positive decision of the Greek problem increased the demand for risk and in this regard the upward trend will be continued. Institutional investors continue to increase transactions on operations carry trade where the Japanese yen is a funding currency.

    The price has been correcting to 123.50 for the fourth time in the past six weeks, acting as a resistance. The mark of 123.50 test is occurred on the reduced volume.

    The price is finding the first support at 122.40, the next one is at 121.60. The price is finding the first resistance at 123.50, the next one is at 124.30.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    15.07.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The multi-week negotiations between the Greek government and international lenders have been finally ended with a consensus. The country remains in the euro zone and will receive a long-awaited financial assistance. Athens will be allocated more than 80 billion euros over three years. In exchange, the Tsipras' government will reform the pension system and labor markets.

    There was increased volatility in the Forex market. The EUR/USD fell after long positions profit taking when it became known that the Greece crisis is solved.

    The GBP/USD showed growth then as traders took profits amid the oil market bearish sentiment.

    The positive decision of the "Greek problem" promoted the demand for risky assets in the world, that supported the USD/JPY. Nevertheless, the pair fell by the end of the day.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    The index ZEW release has been published that has been showing a negative trend for the two months. There is an instability around Greece the last 1.5 months and this fact does not support the growth optimism in the German business community. The index came out with the data 29,7 that is less then 31,5 last month.

    Bears fully control "black gold" market. Brent oil confidently entrenched below the psychological level of $ 60 per barrel.

    The support levels of 1.1150 and 1.1050 break held against the backdrop of high volume - that is a good signal for the medium-term bearish trend continuation.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.0925, the next one is 1.0790. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.1050, the next one is at 1.1150.

    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 a horizontal movement and form a “Dead Cross”.

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

    Trading recommendations

    The pair is close to the strong support. If the pair breaks it we expect the decrease to 0.0790.



    Pound (GBP)

    General overview

    The sterling strengthened amid the BoE chief Mark Carney’s statements is more likely to raise the rates

    The June UK CPI was published. The income has been increased that indicates an increase in consumer spending and ultimately inflation. The gasoline prices have been growing throughout the second quarter which also indicates an increase in CPI. The index came out on the level of 0,0%.

    The support level of 1.5460 short-term test was accompanied by an active pound growth against the US dollar. The resistance level of 1.5550 was broken upwards.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.5550, the next one is 1.5460. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5670, the next one is 1.5775.

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

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

    Trading recommendations

    We recommend going long with the first target – 1.5670. When the price consolidates above the first target it may go to the level 1.5775.



    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    In the lack of important macroeconomic statistics the pair's trading was determined by the stock and debt markets dynamics. We are seeing demand for "risky assets" amid the Greece and creditors agreement that will help to increase the carry trade operations with the Japanese yen as a funding currency.

    The price is finding the first support at 122.40, the next one is at 121.60. The price is finding the first resistance at 123.50, 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 shows an upward movement and the Kijun-sen shows 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 potential growth targets are the resistance levels: 123.50, 124.30.

    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    20.07.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The pair EUR/USD decreased at the end of the last week amid the commodity market sales and the pair EUR/GBP quotations decrease.

    The pair GBP/USD was traded in a narrow range. Earlier the pair decreased amid the US jobless claims moderately positive statistics as well as the US and the UK bond yields increase.

    The pair USD/JPY has finished the trading day in the "green zone". Demand for the "risky assets" still supports bulls.

    The US dollar is also going through hard times. Last week the Fed chairman Janet Yellen hinted that the rate hike would be this year. However, the specifics in terms of the rate hike possible timing traders still have not received. As a result, the statement impact on the dollar was minimal.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    If any factor leads to the undesirable monetary policy tightening, the price stability will substantially worsen. "The European Central Bank Governing Council will use all available tools", - says the ECB president Mario Draghi.

    "Economic conditions" will likely justify the rate hike at some point this year," - said D. Yelllen, speaking in Congress.

    Comparing the ECB and the Fed comments, we can come to the conclusion that the market still will have bullish sentiments towards the US dollar.

    Bears brought the price closer to the first obstacle on the way downwards that is the level of 1.0925. The decrease continued started after breaking the mark of 1.0925.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.0790, the next one is 1.0670. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.0925, the next one is at 1.1050.

    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.

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

    Trading recommendations

    The potential decrease targets are two levels of support: 1.0790 and 1.0670.



    Pound (GBP)

    General overview

    Despite the UK inflation and the labor market negative macroeconomic statistics which we received last week - the British pound avoided sales and stabilized around the 56th figure. There are two key factors that support demand for the pound. Firstly, the pair EUR/GBP quotations reduction amid the single European currency weakness. Secondly, the debt market positive dynamics.

    The mark 1.5670 continues to demonstrate its strength in the resistance status. The bulls' attempt to break through this barrier was not successful.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.5550, the next one is 1.5460. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5670, the next one is 1.5775.

    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 histogram is in a positive territory. The price is consolidating.

    Trading recommendations

    We believe the growth will be continued now. The first target is the level 1.5670, the next one is the level of 1.5775.



    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    There was the bullish sentiments predominance within the pair. Traders continue to act out the Bank of Japan negative inflation forecast (Inflation indicator №1 for the currency market) and in this regard the Japanese yen is under pressure. Demand for the "risky assets" is still quite high which contributes to the carry trade transactions increase through the Japanese yen as a funding currency.

    The resistance at the level of 123.50 was broken through and now the price is close to the new resistance level of 124.30.

    The price is finding the first support at 123.50, the next one is at 122.40. The price is finding the first resistance at 124.30, the next one is at 125.50.

    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 consolidating.

    Trading recommendations

    We suppose the pair will go to 124.30 first. Having overcome the first target the price might go upwards to 125.50.



    Franc (CHF)

    General overview

    The dollar rose against other major currencies. Last week the dollar index reached the seven week high after the labor market solid data have led to the expectations increase about the Fed raising interest rates before the end of 2015.

    The price is finding the first support at 0.9540, the next one is at 0.9370. The price is finding the resistance at 0.9750.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    21.07.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The June USA inflation indicators were published last Friday. The main CPI index growth rate slowed to 0.3% m/m and accelerated to 0.1% y/y vs. 0.4% m/m and 0.0% y/y in May. This basic inflation level registered dynamics exactly in line with expectations (+ 0.2% m/m and 1.8% y/y). Obviously, the US price pressure is not clearly growing at the rate that would require the interest rates sharp increase, so the macro statistics has remained virtually unnoticed by the bulls within the dollar.

    Yesterday the pair EUR/USD slightly corrected. Earlier the pair decreased. Traders sold the euro after the US inflation moderately positive data.

    During the day the pair GBP/USD was trading in a flat. The pair EUR/GBP sales saved the British pound from the bears' "onslaught". However, the pair slightly fell.

    After a slight growth during the day the pair USD/JPY was trading in a narrow flat amid the long positions profit taking in the world leading stock markets which restrains the US dollar quotations growth.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    There was not published any important macroeconomic statistics. The single European currency has been under pressure for the last three trading days and we expect some short positions profit taking. However, we cannot count on the euro significant growth.

    Last week the ECB President Mario Draghi said that inflation would remain low in the short term and we may expect a moderate growth only at the end of the year. Low inflation is traditionally a negative factor for the currency.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    22.07.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The fact that Greece paid some of its debts had no effect on the market as it was fairly predictable. If we look at the picture from a broader perspective, it is clear that the words "the need to restructure" or even "the debt cancellation" have been recently heard too often. It is unclear where the new negotiations round on the financial assistance program will lead us. However, we can say with some confidence that it will be no worse period for the euro. The main negative factor is already found in the price and under favorable circumstances we can see the euro bears' enthusiasm growth. The dollar’s index decreased against the majors by the end of the day.

    The pair EUR/USD was traded in the flat amid the US and Eurozone important macroeconomic statistics publication lack. The pair closed the trades with the euro growth.

    The pair GBP/USD was traded in a flat. Earlier the pound had decreased amid the UK and the US negative bond yields increase.


    The pair USD/JPY had increased amid the "risky assets" demand. However, the pair sharply decreased by the end of the day.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    The euro zone and the United States did not publish any important macroeconomic releases and in this regard the debt dynamics and the commodity market were in the center of our attention. It should be noted that the German 10-year bond yields continue to decline relative to their US and the UK counterparts that is a "bearish" factor for the single European currency. However, the euro bulls were able to seize the initiative.

    Now there is a short-term consolidation above the support level of 1.0790. Then the pair rebounded upwards and the resistance level of 1.1150 was broken through.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.0925, the next one is 1.0790. 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 shows an upward movement and the Kijun-sen shows 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 correcting

    Trading recommendations

    The potential decrease target is the support level of 1.0790.



    Pound (GBP)

    General overview

    The British currency is in a flat of 1.5537 -1.5674 and in the short term we expect this range breakthrough. Fundamental factors indicate that we will see the downward trend development. Last week we received the UK and the US inflation data and its dynamics indicates the presence of demand for the US dollar besides it slightly weakened.

    Buyers have not been able to break through below the support level of 1.5550 for a long time. All attempts were followed by the consolidation formation with the further rebound.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.5550, the next one is 1.5460. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5670, the next one is 1.5775.

    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 shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement and form a “Dead Cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

    The MACD histogram is in a neutral territory. The price is consolidating.

    Trading recommendations

    The approach to the level of 1.5550 may lead to a price rebound down. The potential rebound targets are the support levels of 1.5460, 1.5390.



    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    After a long weekend Japanese banks began their work and in this regard, there was a slight volatility surge. It should be noted that the upward trend was stopped. On Monday there were significant gold sales which positively affected the world leading stock exchanges. When the gold fell there was a demand for markets' assets as investors saw the "risk appetite" growth.

    After the level of 124.30 short-term break through the pair rebounded downwards.

    The price is finding the first support at 123.50, the next one is at 122.40. The price is finding the first resistance at 124.30, the next one is at 125.50.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    23.07.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    There were two unexpected events in the currency market. Firstly, the pair euro/dollar suddenly showed its intent to recover from the lows and almost immediately gained 100 points. Secondly, the pair dollar/yen steady increase came to an end and quotes also rose up by nearly 100 points - but downwards. The reason is simple: the dollar bulls have decided to take profit, the last week its size was substantial as the US dollar took completely its advantage, expecting the Fed rate hike. It is important to note that it happened amid the practically empty macroeconomic calendar.

    The pair EUR/USD had increased amid the short positions profit taking as well as the oil quotations moderate growth. However by the end of the day the pair fell again.

    During the day the pair GBP/USD was trading at the levels of 1.5550 - 1.5670 amid the pair EUR/GBP quotations growth which are holding back the British pound.

    The pair USD/JPY had increased amid the carry trade transactions closure which contributed to the Japanese yen demand as a funding currency. Nevertheless, the pair increased by the end of the day.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    The euro sentiments were determined by the debt market dynamics which is now clearly on the "bears" side. There were the US secondary market housing sales published. The sales increased to 5,49 millions.

    The short-term price consolidation at the support level of 1.0790 was followed by the upward rebound. The rebound was at the low volumes, but it allowed buyers to breakthrough and consolidate above the resistance level of 1.0925. The level of 1.0925 breakthrough was short-term and the pair fell below this level.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.0790, the next one is 1.0670. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.0925, the next one is at 1.1050.

    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 an upward movement and the Kijun-sen shows 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 negative territory. The price is decreasing.

    Trading recommendations

    We may expect towards the growth to 1.0925 and 1.1050 further on we expect a fall.



    Pound (GBP)

    General overview

    There was the Bank of England monetary policy last meeting minutes published which traditionally causes the volatility spike. The monetary regulator meeting took place on Thursday, 9 July and this time we received quite contradictory macroeconomic statistics.

    It is noted the average wage increase in the United Kingdom which is a positive factor for the inflation. The payments balance release for the first quarter points out to the strong negative effect of the British pound revaluation.

    The downward rebound, formed after the support level of 1.5550 testing looks quite weak. Volumes are in reduced zone and the pair did not exit the range formed between the levels of 1.5550 and 1.5670.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.5550, the next one is 1.5460. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5670, the next one is 1.5775.

    The MACD histogram is in a neutral territory. The price is consolidating.

    Trading recommendations

    We expect the 1.5670 line break that will open the way for the buyers to 1.5775.



    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    The quotations decrease which we have seen is a correctional movement – traders partly took profits on the long positions after the long upward trend. It should also be noted that this correction does not look like the US dollar massive sales. The correction was also observed in the US stock market. By the end of the day the pair increased.

    The price is finding the first support at 123.50, the next one is at 122.40. The price is finding the first resistance at 124.30, the next one is at 125.50.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    24.07.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The dollar index basket (USDX) had increased. The pair EUR/USD had decreased amid the oil market "bearish" trend. Nevertheless, the pair increased by the end of the day.

    On the contrary, the pair GBP/USD had grown amid the Bank of England moderately positive minutes where the GDP second and the third quarter growth estimates were increased. The US Energy Department reported the crude oil inventories increase which would contribute to the quotations and will have a negative impact on the British pound as the UK is an exporter of hydrocarbons to the European Union. It should also be noted that there is a negative trend throughout the commodity market that will support the US currency. The pair fell by the end of the trades.

    The day the pair USD/JPY had increased amid the June US secondary market housing sales positive release. The sales rose up by 3.2% in June compared to the previous month and it occurred despite the mortgage interest rates growth. American consumers feel confident enough, just willing to buy housing in spite of the credit growth. Then the pair consolidated.

    According to the US Labor Department the initial jobless claims number became less than 26 thousand having fallen to 255 thousand. It is the minimum since 1973.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    We should pay attention to the commodity and bond market dynamics amid the important macroeconomic statistics lack. The US Energy Department release pointed out to the crude oil reserves growth which puts pressure on the "black gold" quotations. Against this background we expect the Brent quotations decrease which will have a positive impact on the US currency as the oil price is denominated in dollars.

    The euro two-day growth against the US dollar was stopped at the resistance level of 1.0925. The level testing was amid the low volumes and was followed by the breakthrough upwards.

    Pound (GBP)

    General overview

    The MPC last meeting minutes publication confirmed the fundamental mixed background. On the one hand, the wage growth is a positive factor for the medium-term inflation expectations. On the other hand, it was noted that the pound growth can negatively affect the British economy.

    The National Statistics Office published the UK retail sales report for June. The retail sales were 0.2% m / m + 4.0% y / y.

    Buyers were unable to reach the resistance level of 1.5670. the pair decreased and broke through the support level of 1.5550.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.5460, the next one is 1.5390. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5550, the next one is 1.5670.

    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    Japan has published the June trade balance report. At its last monetary policy meeting the Bank of Japan pointed out to the weak economic growth in the second quarter as a whole and the exports decline in particular.

    Franc (CHF)

    General overview

    The Swiss franc strengthened slightly against the US currency amid the dollar decline.

    The absence of important macroeconomic statistics has highlighted speculations on the interest rate differentials.

    The price is finding the first support at 0.9540, the next one is at 0.9370. The price is finding the first resistance at 0.9750, the next one is at 0.9850.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    28.07.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The US dollar was not able to strengthen its position against its main competitors - the dollar index basket (USDX) closed the trading day at the mark of 96.56.

    The pair EUR/USD had decreased despite the France and Germany PMI manufacturing and production sector negative macroeconomic statistics. Nevertheless the pair grew by the end of the day.

    The pair GBP/USD was trading within the flat amid the UK bond yields decrease in relation to their US and Germany counterparts as well as the US new home sales weak data. However the pair increased on the yesterday’s trades.

    The pair USD/JPY was trading in a flat amid the lack of demand for the "risky assets" as well as the US negative macroeconomic statistics. Nevertheless, the pair increased yesterday.

    The US new housing market sales publication did not meet our forecasts: the transactions number amounted to only 482 thousand in June against the expected 546 million and 517 million in May. It has played the role of counterweight within the pair EUR/USD that put pressure not on the euro, but on the US dollar as well.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    The last week euro zone and the United States economic data showed a clear divergence: the Eurozone consumer confidence index and the composite PMI weak releases amid the US real estate positive data and jobless claims reduction. Thus, there will be a steady demand for the US dollar in the short term.

    The euro is recovering its positions against the US dollar. Its corrective growth is on the low volumes and has a target to test the resistance level of 1.1150.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.1050, the next one is 1.0925. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.1150, the next one is at 1.1260.

    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 shows a horizontal movement and the Kijun-sen shows 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

    The approach to the level of 1.1150 may lead to a price rebound down. The potential rebound targets are the support levels of 1.1050, 1.0925, 1.0790.



    Pound (GBP)

    General overview

    The downtrend changed to the upward movement. There are still active sales on the commodity market which is a positive factor for the US currency as the raw material assets cost is denominated in dollars. It should also be noted that the British currency traditionally negatively reacts to the oil bearish trend. Last week the Brent crude finished at the mark of $ 55 / barrel and the next stop will, possibly, be near the 53rd figure.

    There was the resistance level of 1.5550 breakthrough upwards and trades closed at the level of 1.5572.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.5550, the next one is 1.5460. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5670, the next one is 1.5775.

    The price is in 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 “Dead Cross”.

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

    Trading recommendations

    After the trend line 101.85 breakthrough down the way to the support 101.50 will be opened. The resistance level of 1.5670 test is more likely to lead to the rebound downwards.



    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    We noted the "bearish" sentiments prevalence. The lack of demand for the "risky assets" contributed to the carry trade transactions closure that will cause demand for the Japanese yen. The negative trend is confirmed by the debt market: the US and Japan 10-year bond yields are reducing which is clearly at the "bears" hands.

    There was the support level of 123.50 breakthrough which was followed by the very low volumes.

    The price is finding the first support at 122.40, the next one is at 121.60. The price is finding the first resistance at 123.50, the next one is at 124.30.

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

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

    Trading recommendations

    We may expect the growth towards 123.50 further on we expect a fall to 122.40.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    03.08.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The US currency continued its winning streak - the dollar index basket (USDX) closed the trading day at the mark of 97.60.

    The pair EUR / USD had decreased amid the Germany and Spain inflation slowdown last Friday.

    During the day the pair GBP / USD was trading in a flat amid the UK bond yields moderate growth relative to its US and Germany counterparts.

    The pair USD / JPY increased amid the "risky assets" demand at the end of the last week.

    The last week US second quarter GDP data came out slightly worse than the consensus forecast, but we can consider it moderately positive. The personal consumption expenditures main index for the second quarter increased by 1.8% which exceeded the traders’ expectations. The Fed uses namely this indicator as the consumer activity benchmark.

    In general, the US dollar continues to behave as if the Fed’s rate hike is actually a solution. We should remind that the Fed noted the labor market improvement, but it was not more aggressive than expected when it came to the Fed's rate hike timing.




    Technical analysis

Economists had forecasted that the monthly value would remain within the flat. However, the retail sales positive trend remains the same, private consumption will continue to support the European largest economy growth. It is expected that the German economy will expand by 1.8% this year and 2.0% in 2016.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    04.08.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    This week the US dollar is being traded without significant changes in anticipation of important macroeconomic statistics. Investors are waiting for the US labor market Friday's data. The labor costs record low index in the second quarter raised questions about the Fed key rate hike in September. Thus, the US labor costs index showed the lowest growth rate in the second quarter at the level of 0.2% well below the forecast by 0.7%.

    Previously, the dollar was supported by the Federal Reserve two-day meeting. The Fed noted the labor market improvement, but it was not more aggressive than it was expected when it came to the Fed rate hike timing.

    In addition, we expect the euro zone important data. Economists expect the official data that will be published next will point to the Germany manufacturing industry growth production, but its slowdown in France and Italy that shows divergence in the euro area economy. However the data in Italy came out showed a growth to 55,3 from 54,1. Nevertheless the pair euro/dollar closed the trades with a decreased.

    The pair GBP/USD also decreased. Earlier the pound traded without significant changes in BoE's meeting anticipation on the coming Thursday. At the same time for the first time the central bank will announce the interest rates decision and will publish its meeting minutes and the UK economy new forecasts.

    The yen declined against the dollar amid the general demand for the US currency and the interest decrease in safe assets because of the stock indices strengthening.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    The euro was supported by the euro zone consumer inflation strong indicators. Thus, the EU consumer prices rose up by 0.2% y/y in July while the core index showed an increase by 0.9% y/y against the expected 0.2% and 0.8%, respectively. In addition, the unemployment rate remained at the mark of 11.1%.

    Buyers tried to continue the upward trend, but they were stopped by the resistance near 1.1050. The level testing was followed by an active rebound downwards on the increased volume. The rebound from the level of 1.1050 has allowed customers to consolidate below this level.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.0925, the next one is 1.0790. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.1050, the next one is at 1.1150.

    There is a confirmed and a weak sell signal. The price is under the Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows an upward movement 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 negative territory. The price is decreasing.

    Trading recommendations

    We suppose the pair will go to 1.0925 first. Having overcome the first target the price might go downwards to 1.0790, 1.0670.



    Pound (GBP)

    General overview

    The data publication has shown that approved applications for mortgage and consumer loans totaled 66.58K and £ 1.22 billion respectively.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.5550, the next one is 1.5460. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.5670, the next one is 1.5775.

    There is a 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. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

    The MACD histogram is in a neutral territory. The price is correcting.

    Trading recommendations

    The approach to the level of 1.5550 may lead to a price rebound upwards. The potential rebound target is the resistance level of 1.5670.



    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    The statistics in Japan showed that the retail sales have fallen for the third time this year -by 0.8% in June after the January and March decline. Analysts had forecasted decrease on average by 0.9%.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    05.08.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The beginning of the current week was relatively calm in the currency market. The dollar continued to strengthen against the major competitors, continuing to enjoy the support by the Fed rate hike expectations. However the dollar slightly weakened on the yesterday’s trades.

    Earlier the pair EUR/USD once again came under pressure, at the same time there was not any problem with the local growth drivers. The July PMI manufacturing activity index in the euro zone countries was mostly positive while the region index exceeded expectations and amounted to 52.4 against the expected 52.2. But it was not enough to strengthen the single European currency. Nevertheless the pair slightly increased on Tuesday.

    Earlier the dollar got a new reason to grow. The personal spending rose in June more than expected, reflecting a growth by 0.4% against the forecast at the level of 0.3%. At a time when traders are almost convinced in the Fed rates raising until the end of the year, it was enough to trigger a purchases wave.

    The pair pound/dollar closed the trades with a growth and the pair dollar/yen was trading in a flat.




    Technical analysis

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    The euro fell amid the dollar growth in anticipation of the Friday US government employment publication. Investors expect the data to be strong and it may lead to move the forecasts, relating the interest rates growth by the Federal Reserve at an earlier date. However the pair slightly grew on Tuesday’s trades.

    The trade within the pair euro/dollar looks lowly volatile. The price reduction is on the lower volumes and reached the strong support level of 1.0925. Then the pair rebounded upwards.

    Pound (GBP)

    Yen (JPY)

    General overview

    The main driving force that influenced the dollar growth was the personal income and spending data which rose by 0.4% and 0.2% respectively while revenues have grown more than it was forecasted. The Americans incomes grow more than expenditures that indicates the consumption slowdown. This trend threatens the fact that inflation may remain low and investors wait for the Fed rate hikes. Nevertheless, investors regarded revenue growth as a signal for the consumption and inflation future growth.

    The resistance level of 124.30 re-testing led to the upward trend reversal downwards then a consolidation was formed.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    06.08.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    The market trades are rather sluggish in anticipation of new movement catalysts. The dollar keeps the overall positive mood ahead of the coming Friday labor market publication which may be defined in terms of the US interest rates timing and thus the US currency prospects.

    The US currency was supported by the Federal Reserve System representative statement. The Atlanta Fed President Dennis Lockhart said the central bank may raise short-term interest rates next month.

    The US issued the employment outside agricultural sector release from ADP. The data came lower than expected 215 thousand. The number of employees amounted to 185 thousand.

    The euro fell amid the increased demand for the dollar. Greece reported that it planned to sign the bailout agreement until 18 August. Greece will carry out a regular payment to the ECB on 20 August and the same deadline for the third tranche agreement signing. The pair is trading in a flat after a decrease.

    Earlier the pound fell amid the renewed speculation that the Fed can be tempted to increase the key rate in September. The pair pound/dollar slightly increased on the yesterday’s trades.

    The pair USD/JPY has updated the highs and continues to maintain an optimistic tone with the overall demand for the dollar.

    "Fort Financial Services"- fundamental and technical analysis

    07.08.2015

    Fundamental analysis

    This week the currency spent most of the trades in a lull. It is not surprising as we are approaching the end of the week where we expect the most significant releases and during the previous days traders just saved their strength.

    The pair EUR/USD has recovered, responding to the US ADP data that did not meet their expectations. It turned out that it was created only 185 thousand jobs in the US private sector against the expected 215 thousand in July and 229 thousand in June. It undermined confidence in the dollar, especially in anticipation of the more labor market publication that is the NFP report. After all, if the employment level is unsatisfactory, it can erase all expectations about the possible Fed rate hike.

    As a result, the dollar faced a sales wave against most rivals, but not for a long time. Shortly after the ADP report there was published the ISM US services sector activity index which in July rose up to 60.3 from the June's 56.0. It was quite enough to initiate the US dollar recovery against its major rivals. However, the dollar failed to maintain the leadership and strengthened only against the pound by the end of the day.

    The Bank of England released its quarterly inflation report, the monetary policy last meeting minutes and delivered the current rate verdict. The BoE kept the interest rates unchanged at 0.50%.

    According to the US Labor Department the initial jobless claims number became more than 3 thousand having reached to 270 thousand.

    Euro (EUR)

    General overview

    The Germany industrial orders rose up by 2.0% m/m and 7.2% y/y. The German industry rapid growth is connected with the cheap euro and also with the European continuing producer prices decline, though it does not eliminate the deflation threat.

    The price is finding the first support at 1.0790, the next one is 1.0670. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.0925, the next one is at 1.1050.
