#GBP   underwent some correction against #USD   on Wednesday, dragging the price of #GBPUSD   to less than 1.2350 amid some key economic events. The pair had shown skyrocket movement of more than 400 pips yesterday. The technical bias remains bullish because of a higher low in the recent downside wave.

As of this writing, the pair is being traded around 1.2323. A hurdle can be noted near 1.2492, the confluence of trendline resistance as well as 38.2% fib level as demonstrated in the given below daily chart. A break and daily closing above the 1.2500 resistance shall incite renewed buying interest, validating a move towards the 1.2774 resistance zone.

On the downside, the pair is likely to find a support around 1.2300, the confluence of psychological number as well as trendline support ahead of 1.2015, the intraday low of today and then 1.1916, the swing low of 2016.

Начавшаяся торговая неделя обещает стать очень насыщенной в плане экономических и политических новостей. Самое ожидаемое событие — это инаугурация Трампа 20 января. Новоизбранный лидер Америки опять проведет пресс-конференцию, но уже в качестве президента страны. Если #Трамп подтвердит свои планы по поводу снижения налогов и увеличения бюджетных расходов, #доллар получит новые силы для продолжения восходящего движения.

Также текущая пятидневка богата на заседания Центробанков. В среду своими планами по поводу кредитно-денежной политики поделится Банк Канады, а в четверг ожидаем пресс-конференцию ЕЦБ. #Аналитики не прогнозируют каких-либо изменений монетарной политики на этих заседаниях, но #инвесторам интересно мнение чиновников по поводу текущих изменений в #экономике.

Восстановление пары #eurusd остановилось у технически важного диапазона. 1.0670-1.0620 не единожды сдерживал как покупателей, так и продавцов. Поэтому если пара не сумеет удержаться выше 1.0600, планы быков окажутся под угрозой срыва. В то же время продавцам надо как минимум несколько дней провести ниже 1.0500 для того, чтобы набраться сил для штурма ключевой поддержки у 1.0420-1.0340.

Напрасно противники американской #валюты надеялись на быструю победу. Свергнуть #гринбек с пьедестала будет довольно трудно. Так, пара #usdcad довольно уверенно отбилась от 30 фигуры, продемонстрировав при этом разворотную комбинацию «пронизывающая свеча» на таймфрейме н4. Стоп для покупок у 1.3030. Первичными целями для восходящего движения станет 1.3400-1.3300.

Рост по нефти захлебнулся, многое в ценообразовании пары будет зависеть от сегодняшнего фундамента. Конечно же, выступление Трампа отбросило доллар назад, но это не отменяет того факта, что в экономике США много позитивных изменений. Зарплаты растут, безработица падает, инфляция на прогнозируемом ФРС уровне. Все это вкупе позволяет ожидать исполнения обещаний от американского федрезерва по поводу графика изменений базовой процентной ставки. Но в то же время до заседания американского регулятора остается больше двух недель, и вполне возможно, что пара сможет еще раз обновить минимум. Ближайшее сопротивление, с которым может столкнуться восходящее движение, — 1.3200-1.3180.

#Ether is trading at 0.01216 BTC right now, close to 47 percent from the yearly open. Granted, this has been a rally from oversold levels. At one point prices declined by over 75 percent from the highs hit earlier this year.

Nonetheless, that’s in the past and right now #ETHBTC is in short-term rally mode. Resistance on the way up can be found at 0.01332 BTC, closely followed by the 0.01382 swing high and the 0.015 round figure.

On the lower end, we have support at the 0.01 round figure, followed by the swing highs near 0.0089 BTC. A move below 0.008 would technically end the fledgling #ETH uptrend. The December low at 0.0073 is another level to take note off. The semi-round figure at 0.05 #BTC may lend some support as well.

#USD   extended upside movement against #CHF   on Wednesday, increasing the price of USD/CHF to more than 1.050 following the release of some key economic news. The technical bias remains bullish because of a higher high and higher low in the recent wave.

The pair is being traded near 1.0162. A support may be seen around 1.0051, the swing low of the giant pin bar which was emerged on 30th December. A break and daily closing below the 1.0051 support shall incite renewed selling pressure, validating a move towards 1.0018-1.0000, the confluence of horizontal support area as well as psychological number.

On the upside, the pair is expected to face a hurdle around 1.0206, the horizontal resistance area ahead of 1.0335, the swing high of the last major upside rally and then 1.0500, the psychological number. The technical bias shall remain bullish as long as the 1.0000 support area is intact.

Пятничный отчет по рынку труда оказался довольно противоречив. Количество новых рабочих мест получилось на уровне 156К, в то время как аналитики прогнозировали показатель на уровне 175К. В итоге декабрь стал одним из самых худших месяцев по приросту новых рабочих мест. В то же время, безработица выросла согласно прогноза: 4,7% против 4,6%. А вот рост средней заработной платы оказался на руку быкам по #гринбек. Показатель увеличился на 0,4%, что стало самым большим ежемесячным приростом за последние семь лет.

Но пыл долларовых быков это нисколько не убавило. Пара #USDJPY после теста 115 фигуры сумела сформировать разворотный бар на покупку от 116.12 и укрепиться к 117.40. Сегодня наблюдаем попытки покупателей продолжить рост, но все будет зависеть от того, на чьей стороне окажется 117 фигура. Если продавцы пары сломают данную поддержку, ждем теста 116.40-116.00. В случае уверенного отбоя от упомянутой отметки логично ожидать продолжения восходящего движения к 118.60-118.20.

Особо важного фундамента по #доллару сегодня не предвидится. Но стоит обратить внимание на выступление члена ФОМС Локхарда и президента ФРБ Чикаго Эванса.

It’s been a much calmer week for #BTCUSD. Prices are currently quoted at $865 dollars, only $3 below last Tuesday’s price. This is a price difference of only 0.34 percent.

Still the short-term trend remains down. To end it, the bulls will have to push #bitcoin above the $900 round figure. To resume the broken uptrend however, #BTC will have to stage a breakout above the highs at $1,096.

Above current prices resistance can be found at the $900 and $1,000 round levels, closely followed by $1,096 on FXOpen (around $1,163 on other USD exchanges). On the bottom, we have support at the $800 level, followed by $750. In fact there’s a large support area here, between $730 and $750 dollars. A breakdown below it could intensify the losses for bitcoin.

With the end of the rally, we’ve seen price differences return to more historical levels. Right now FXOpen is lagging the US market by only $14 dollars, compared to the $37 reported two weeks ago. The USD vs CNY gap has shrunk from over $100 dollars to $21 at the moment. Both of these gaps were much smaller 24 hours ago, before the small perk up higher.

#AUD   inched lower against #USD   on Monday, dragging the price of #AUDUSD   to less then 0.7500, following the release of some key economic news. The technical bias remains bearish because of the lower low in the recent downside move.

The pair is being traded around 0.7464. A hurdle can be noted near 0.7517, the horizontal resistance area as demonstrated in the give below daily chart. A break and daily closing above the 0.7517 resistance area shall incite renewed buying interest validating an upside rally towards the 0.7710 resistance zone.

On the downside, a support can be noted around 0.7445, the horizontal support area ahead of 0.7300, the confluence of psychological number as well as a critical support zone. A daily closing below the 0.7300 support area shall target 0.7160, the swing low of the last major downside wave.

#USD   extended upside movement against #CAD   on Friday, increasing the price of #USDCAD   to more than 1.3100 following the release of some key economic news and events. The technical bias remains bearish because of a lower low in the recent wave.

A break and daily closing below 1.3100 shall incite renewed selling pressure, validating a move towards the 1.2980 support area which is another critical support as demonstrated in the give below daily chart.

On the upside, the pair is expected to face a hurdle around 1.3309, the horizontal resistance area ahead of 1.3400 the psychological number and then 1.3598, the swing high of the last major upside rally. The technical bias shall remain bullish as long as the 1.3080 support area is intact.

Первая пресс-конференция новоизбранного президента США Дональда Трампа не оправдала ожиданий почитателей #гринбек. #Инвесторы и участники рынка ожидали, что Трамп раскроет детали обещанных им экономических реформ в ходе предвыборной гонки. Речь идет о снижении налогов и увеличении бюджетных расходов. Но вместо этого Трамп посвятил конференцию критике СМИ и спецслужб США, допустивших появление на него очередного компромата.

В итоге неоправданные ожидания инвесторов вылились в полномасштабные продажи #доллара, позволившие рассматривать смену среднесрочного тренда. Так, пара #eurusd после теста 1.0450 сумела укрепиться к значимому сопротивлению 1.0600. Сегодня наблюдаем стремление быков по #евро продолжить рост, и, если диапазон 1.0640-1.0620 останется в роли поддержки, в ближайшие недели можно ожидать посещения 1.0900-1.0800.

Отменой восходящего движения станет уверенное закрепление ниже 1.0450-1.0400. Из фундамента сегодня ждем публикацию протокола последнего заседания ЕЦБ.

#Bitcoin’s bull run is finally over. Prices peaked at $1,096 on FXOpen (around $1,163 on other exchanges). Just three days later a low of $770 dollars was hit on FXOpen (around $810 on other exchanges).

This is almost exactly where prices topped out back in June. In a classic move of former resistance turns into support, prices bounced here. We are currently quoted at $868 dollars, $98 above the lows but a substantial $228 dollars below the highs. The People’s Bank of China held a meeting with major bitcoin exchanges in the country and allegedly issued them a warning. However it is likely that incoming restrictions from China were part of the reason behind the large rally in #BTC prices since November 3rd. Chinese bitcoin exchanges account for over 90% of the trading volume. Thus news of bitcoin restrictions in China tends to have a high impact on the market price.

On the technical front, we are now in “no man’s land.” A resumption of the rally would need a break above the $1,096 highs, which doesn’t seem likely in the foreseeable future. Below here we find resistance at the round figures of $900 (weak) and $1,000 (strong). On the lower end, a downtrend requires a decisive break below the $770 swing low. Support below here can be found at $750, $730 and $700 dollars per coin. The longer trends for #BTCUSD (weekly and monthly) remain #bullish.

#Silver   extended upside movement on Monday, increasing the price of white metal to more than $16.50 after the release of US nonfarm payroll report. The technical bias remains bearish because of a lower low and lower high in the recent wave on the daily chart.

The precious metal is being traded around $16.50. A hurdle can be noted near $17.08, the horizontal resistance area ahead of $18.00, another critical resistance zone. A break and daily closing above the $18.00 resistance area shall incite renewed buying interest, validating an upside rally towards the $19.00 resistance area.

One the down side, the white metal is likely to find a support around $16.25, the intraday low of today ahead of $15.80, the horizontal support zone and then $15.63, the swing low of the last major downside wave. The technical bias shall remain bearish as long as the $17.21 resistance zone is intact.
