Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs
(February 8 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

Dominant bias: Bullish
This pair was engaged in a smooth bullish run last week, moving upwards 420 pips before the bearish retracement that was seen on Friday (February 5, 2016). The bearish retracement could be taken as a sale in the context of an uptrend, for the uptrend might continue this week. As long as price is above the support line at 1.0950, the bullish bias cannot be threatened. The resistance lines at 1.1250 and 1.1300 are the potential targets for bulls this week.

Dominant bias: Bearish
Owing to the perceived weakness in USD, USDCHF dropped 340 pips last week, ending the recent bullish outlook on the market. The support level at 0.9900 was tried, before the current upward bounce, which is, however, shallow. That support level at 0.9900 could be retried again and get breached to the downside, as price possibly attains the support levels at 0.9850 and 0.9800 this week. It must be noted that the market is now below the psychological level at 1.0000; so it might be difficult for bulls to effect any bullish changes that would take the price above that level. In case the psychological level at 1.0000 is broken to the upside, then a rally that would eventually threaten the bearish bias might begin.

Dominant bias: Bullish
From the low of January 29, 2016, Cable rose steeply, testing the distribution territory at 1.4650 on Thursday, February 4, 2016. From that distribution territory, price has come down by 200 pips, on the following day. That correction is a proof of the vulnerability of the ongoing strength in Sterling, for the outlook on GBP pairs remains bearish for this month. While GBP is strong versus USD, it is weak against certain other currencies, for instance, GBPJPY, GBPCHF, EURGBP, etc. The market might resume a rally this week, albeit further bearish correction of another 200 pips would put an end to the current bullish outlook.

Dominant bias: Bearish
The sudden and unexpected weakness of this currency trading instrument was partly due to the weakness of USD. On January 29, 2016, price touched the supply level at 121.50 and dropped 500 pips in the following week, which has resulted in an undisputed Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market. Long trades are not currently logical until there is a clear indication that bulls have taken control again. Right now, bears are the ones in control.

Dominant bias: Bullish
Unlike other JPY pairs (e.g. NZDJPY, AUDJPY, etc.), EURJPY did not come down significantly because of the strength in EUR itself. Last week, price came down only by 160 pips – a movement that was not strong enough to invalidate the bullish bias on the market. Only a movement below the demand zone at 128.50 would put an end to the extant bullish bias, as price is expected to rally this week or next. It would be mentioned that JPY pairs still have the possibility of rallying this month.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:
