Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs
(February 15 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

Dominant bias: Bullish
EURUSD moved upwards by 230 pips last week, topping at the resistance line of 1.1350, before the current bearish correction. From that resistance line, price got corrected by 100 pips while the bias on the market remains bullish. There is a need for price to go above that resistance line this week, aiming for other resistance lines at 1.1400 and 1.1450. Otherwise, bears might overcome bulls and manage to push price further south.

Dominant bias: Bearish
This pair has proven to be one of the strongest trending among the majors. Price dropped by roughly 260 pips last week, moving briefly below the support level at 0.9700. Then price turned upwards, making a shallow bullish effort. The bullish effort cannot render the current bearish bias invalid unless price goes above the resistance levels at 0.9900 and 1.0000, which is not an easy task, given the ongoing bearish sentiment in the market. USDCHF is suffering from all-round attacks, for EURUSD is up, causing USDCHF to remain under pressure, and CHF itself is strong (see CHF pairs). Eventually, the shallow bullish effort in the market might turn out to be another shallow short-selling opportunity.

Dominant bias: Bullish
Cable merely consolidated throughout last week, in the context of a medium-term uptrend. The presence of bulls is still visible in the market, though it is possible for them to be subdued by bears any time. A movement above the distribution territories at 1.4600 and 1.4650 would reinforce the current bullish effort, while a movement below the accumulation territories at 1.4350 and 1.4300 would invalidate it.

Dominant bias: Bearish
The price has gone down by 600 pips this week, and it has gone down by 1000 pips since January 29, 2016. The demand level at 111.50 was tried before the upward bounce that happened on Friday, February 12, 2016. The upward bounce is another opportunity to go short while the bearish trend lasts. The bias on JPY pairs is currently bearish, although that does not rule out the possibility of them rallying before the end of this month.

Dominant bias: Bearish
This cross experienced a large pullback last week, going down by 450 pips and reaching the demand zone at 126.00. Thus time around the stamina in EUR has been unable to cause it to withstand the assault from JPY (as it is true of some other EUR pairs). It is logical to assume further southerly movement in the market, due to a strong Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market. Along the way, upward bounces might be ignored as long as it is clear that bears are in control.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

“Almost all of my trading is mechanical — 100% based on rules I have tested and found to be valid. I tend to ignore news of the day, fundamental information and adverse “big picture” scenarios because these do not impact my systems greatly. Sometimes, these factors affect my results in the short term, but over the long term, the systems have a positive expectancy.” – Kevin J. Davey
