GBP/USD - Explodes Higher From Bullish Pin Bar

The GBP/USD exploded higher yesterday following the bullish pin bar that we discussed in our market commentary on Tuesday. Today we get a counter-trend bearish pin bar from key resistance so now would probably be a good time to consider taking profit or moving stop-losses to break-even to avoid being caught out by a sell-off. This signal, though, is by no means a sell signal as the trend is still well and truly to the upside.…

Which Way for the US Economy: Philadelphia Fed Rises, New York Falls

Factory production in the mid-Atlantic region expanded in April at the fastest pace in seven months, but across the Delaware River in the New York Fed growth slowed to its lowest level since last November. 

The Philadelphia Fed Business outlook Index came in at 16.6 well above the 10.0 forecast and almost doubling March's 9.0 reading. The Philadelphia Federal Reserve region comprises the eastern two thirds of Pennsylvania, Delaware and Southern New Jersey.

In New York the story…

GBPUSD: Tests The 1.6819/22 level, Eyes Further Upside

GBPUSD: GBP remains bullish strengthening further on Wednesday and targeting further upside. Though seen strengthening during early trading today, it requires a break and hold above the 1.6819/22 level to create scope for more gains. The pair needs to decisively break and hold above here to trigger further bullish offensive towards the 1.6877 level. Further out, resistance resides at the 1.6900 level where a break will aim at the 16950 level and then its big psycho level at the…

TD: Morning FX Outlook-USDCAD

"Technically, USDCAD looks to us like it “wants” to trade higher but is lacking incentives at the moment.  Short-term trend momentum is positive, keeping USDCAD pinned up against short-term resistance in the 1.1020 area. A break above 1.1020 should see spot rally to 1.1070 or so fairly easily (the 40-day MA comes in at 1.1065).  A high close for USDCAD…

EUR/USD April 17 – Euro Firm After Yellen Comments

EUR/USD has moved higher on Thursday, as the euro continues to take advantage of dovish comments by Fed chair Janet Yellen on Wednesday. The pair is trading in the mid-1.3860 in the European session. Today’s sole Eurozone release, German PPI, declined last month, as Eurozone inflation indicators remain weak. In the US, we’ll get a look at Unemployment Claims and the Philly Fed Manufacturing Index later in the…

RBS:Short-term cyclical vs long-term structural

"(...) Short-term cyclical vs long-term structural:

The markets' fixation with the UK's positive short-term data flow risks overlooking the still substantial structural imbalances in the UK economy: a bloated current account deficit (averaging 3.1% of GDP over the past four years despite subdued domestic demand), among the worst fiscal metrics in the developed world (a structural budget deficit of 4.5% this year – only Japan's is…

USDJPY Elliott Wave Analysis: Bearish Price Action In View

USDJPY has turned nicely down at the start of the year from 105.50. A decline can be counted in five waves, so we think that this is first leg of minimum three waves bearish structure. Therefore we are looking for more weakness now as corrective rally from 100.70 appears completed after recent fall to the lower side of a trading channel. Break-down is in view it seems, so traders should be aware of move through 100.72 and possibly to 99.00 area.

Gold, AUDUSD, EURUSD, GBPUSD & USDJPY outlook for today.

USDJPY hit our target of 102.35/40 & topped exactly here as predicted. The pair have sunk back to support at 102.00/95 but below here look for a buying opportunity at 101.40/30. Just bear in mind with the daily chart oversold, we have lots more support with March lows at 101.25/20 & 10 month trend line support at 101.10.

Above 102.05 is more positive again & targets 102.17/19 then a retest of resistance at 102.35/40. Again a high for the day is possible but be ready to go…
