Bearish in EURUSD but only selling into rallies


Recommended Posts

USD INDEX- The index has stalled at the 161.8% extension level of 90.25 (from 88.26-89.49). Although the med-term bias remains bullish for the US dollar, some currency majors are highlighting scope for a deeper correction. Bespoke support is seen at 89.94. If we see a break of this area then further support is seen at 89.61, a possible right shoulder of a bullish reverse Head and Shoulders formation. We look for the deeper correction to buy into.

For this reason, we look for an upside correction to sell into EURUSD this week.

 

Monthly: In a large corrective channel formation. The trend of lower lows in seen at 1.2670. We have stalled and pulled back from the 38.2% pullback level of 1.2517 (from 1.6038-1.0341)

Weekly:  A possible Ending Wedge formation. Trend line support is seen at 1.1978. The previous swing low is seen at 1.1553. With bespoke support at 1.1593, we expect a ‘bounce’ higher from this solid support area.

Daily: Stalled in front of the 261.8% extension level of 1.2620(from 1.1551-1.1959). The move higher can bee seen in 5 waves (Elliott Wave). With bespoke support located at 1.2123, our risk/reward would be poor to sell from current levels.

Intraday (four-hours) – We have stalled at the 161.1% extension level of 1.2212 (from 1.2539-1.2337). The intraday chart (1 hour) posts a DeMark exhaustion 13. Often the indication of a change in the current trend. For these reasons, we look to sell into rallies.

Bespoke resistance is seen at 1.2330-40. This area has been pivotal (swing high from 17th January 1.2324 / swing low from the 30th January at 1.2337).

    • Charting the Markets: 8 February FTSE 100 near record high, DAX 40 and S&P 500 also higher on Fed chair's speech. EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD prices oversold in uptrend. And gold and oil prices rally, as lumber drops back. Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Financial Analyst, London | Publication date: Wednesday 08 February 2023                 This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • EURUSD, GBPUSD and AUDUSD prices oversold in uptrend Volatile trade, following Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s comments at the Economic Club of Washington DC, has ultimately ended in gains for major US indices and some minor losses for the US dollar. Source IG   Forex United States dollar EUR/USD Euro AUD/USD GBP/USD  Shaun Murison | Senior Market Analyst, Johannesburg | Publication date: Wednesday 08 February 2023 Acknowledgement from the Fed chair, that the disinflation process had begun, might have provided some excuse for a softer dollar, although there was also a suggestion from Jerome Powell that rates could rise further than markets are currently pricing in if inflation starts to rise again. Markets appeared to dismiss the ‘hawkish’ comments from the Fed, and major benchmark indices have started to extend the bullish trends we have seen this year, while the dollar has paused gains (for now at least). EUR/USD Source IG The moving 20 (red), 50 (green) and 200 (blue) day simple moving averages (MAs) reaffirm the upward trend bias for the EUR/USD. The stochastic oscillator currently trades in oversold territory whilst displaying a positive divergence (dotted red lines) with the price. The technical indications for the EUR/USD remain bullish for the time being. The recent retracement in price looks to have found support at the 50MA and 1.0707 support level. We are looking for a strong close on today’s (8 February 2023) candle. In this scenario 1.1035 becomes the initial upside resistance target from the move, while a close below the low at 1.0670 might be used as a stop loss indication for the trade should it manifest. GBP/USD   Source IG The GBP/USD currently trades in a short to medium term rangebound environment, although the longer term trend is still considered up. The price looks to be forming a bullish price reversal from oversold territory, whilst also displaying a bullish divergence (dotted red lines). The bullish indications suggest a possible range trade opportunity forming. Confirmation thereto would be a strong close on today’s candle. In this scenario, 1.2440 becomes the initial resistance target from the move, while traders might consider using a close below the 1.1850 level as a stop loss indication for the trade (should it manifest). AUD/USD   Source IG The AUD/USD is trading similarly to the EUR/USD currently. The moving 20 (red), 50 (green) and 200 (blue) day simple moving averages (MAs) reaffirm the upward trend bias for the currency pair, while the stochastic oscillator trades through oversold territory (although not displaying a bullish divergence as with the EUR/USD). The technical indications for the AUD/USD remain bullish for the time being. The recent retracement in price looks to have found support at the 50MA and started to reverse off this level. 0.7155 becomes the initial upside resistance target form the move, while a close below the low at 0.6853 might be used as a stop loss indication for the trade.
    • Did Powell cap interest rate expectations and in turn revive the Dow and other risk benchmarks? More likely, fed rate expectations fueled by last week’s strong data run has likely find a natural equilibrium; but that means risk trends and the Dollar need a new guiding fundamental light to render tentative breaks into viable trends.
