Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (March 7 - 11, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
As it was mentioned in the last forecast, EURUSD has been making some bullish attempt, which, however, has not been significant enough to render the recent bearish bias invalid. Bears pushed price downwards, but met a stiff rejection at the support line of 1.0850. Price then moved sideways and later broke upwards on Thursday, trending upwards by at least 160 pips. Since it is expected that the bullish attempt would continue this week, price could reach the resistance lines at 1.1050 and 1.1100 in the week.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Neutral
USDCHF merely moved sideways throughout last week, with no directional journey to the upside or to the downside. The sideways movement was generally between the support level at 0.9900 and the resistance level at 1.0000. Nevertheless, there is going to be a breakout this week, which would most probably favor sellers, because this pair would continue to be influenced by gravity as long as EURUSD is making bullish attempt. The support level at 0.9800 could thus be tested this week.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bullish
The bias on Cable is now bullish. Throughout last week, Cable made a perpetual journey to the north, going upwards by 400 pips and almost testing the distribution territory at 1.4250 (after price started going upward from the accumulation territory at 1.3850 on Monday). There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market and it is much more likely that Cable would go upwards by at least, additional 200 pips this week.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Neutral
Unlike most other JPY pairs, which traded upwards last week, USDJPY simply moved sideways. This is because USD is not strong enough to take advantage of the weak JPY (as other pairs like AUDJPY and NZDJPY have done). In fact, we can see that USD is weak versus other major pairs (like AUDUSD, NZDUSD, GBPUSD, etc.). This week, there is a probability that USDJPY would continue moving sideways or even consolidate to the downside, for there may not be a significant rally here as long as USD is weak.


EURJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
This cross traded downwards on Monday, going briefly below the demand zone at 122.50 on Tuesday and then starting a bullish journey on the same day (March 1, 2016), which saw a gain of almost 450 pips at the end of that week. The supply zone at 125.50 has already been tested and it would be breached to the upside as bullish continues to push price upwards. The supply levels at 126.00 and 126.50 are potential targets for bulls this week.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

“How about your trading? What reward/risk ratio do you think is acceptable on your trades? Do you have a defined targeted ratio before you enter a position and an acceptable effective ratio resulting from your trades? Do you manage your current reward risk ratio on open positions? Developing a strong and deeper understanding of your reward to risk management can be a great edge and a path to trading mastery.” - Sam Eder (Source: Vantharp.com)

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (March 14 - 18, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bullish
This pair consolidated from Monday to Wednesday, breaking out northward on Thursday (March 10, 2016). On that day, price first spiked downwards and then rallied significantly, testing the resistance line at 1.1200. There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market and it is possible that the price would continue going northwards this week, going above the resistance line at 1.1200, and testing another resistance lines at 1.1250 and 1.1300.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bearish
USDCHF was merely consolidating between the support level at 0.9900 and the resistance level at 1.0000. On Thursday, the market performed a false breakout above the resistance level at 1.0000 and later trended strongly downwards. This has led to a “sell” signal in the market, which might continue this week. USD will be facing challenges from some major pairs, like EUR and GBP (even NZD will rally this week, for it would be strong versus other currencies). So USD is in for a serious battering this week.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bullish
As it was mentioned last week, this currency trading instrument rallied, testing the distribution territory at 1.4400 and closing at 1.4383 on Friday. Price is supposed to continue going upwards this week, targeting the distribution territories at 1.4450 and 1.4500. Price might even move beyond these distribution territories, but not without attacks from bears, who would show enough desperation in dragging price south.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Neutral
USDJPY went through a turbulent phase within March 7 and 11, with no clear victory between bull and bear. On Monday and Tuesday, price moved downwards. On Wednesday, it moved upwards, while Thursday was full of morbid threats from bears. Bulls dared the bears’ threats on Friday, managing to push price upwards slightly on Friday. What will happen next? The current price action shows that price could continue moving upwards from here, although persistent weakness in USD could cause the anticipated bullish movement to be somewhat limited.


EURJPY
Dominant bias: Bullish
This cross consolidated on Monday, moved downwards on Tuesday and began to rally Wednesday. In fact, the rally that happened on Wednesday took the cross upwards by over 400 pips, as its price tested the supply zone at 127.00. Bulls are still showing willingness to push the cross further north; plus there is a bullish signal in the market. The potential targets for the week are located at 127.50 and 128.00.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

“Effective traders are willing to get out of their comfort zones and try new things. I know it might be scary to go into the unknown, but to have more in life, you must take smart risks.” – Louise Bedford

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (March 21 - 25, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bullish
From Monday till Wednesday, this pair moved south. Price broke upwards on Wednesday as it rose significantly by 280 pips that day and on Thursday. On Friday, price got corrected lower a bit, closing at 1.1269. However, the outlook on EUR is bearish for this week, and bulls would experience serious difficulties in pushing price further upwards. This weakness could also be witnessed on other EUR pair like EURCAD and EURNZD.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bearish
Last week, USDCHF took a serious battering as prognosticated, given what also happened to USDCAD, EURUSD, GBPUSD, NZDUSD, AUDUSD, etc. After consolidating from Monday to Wednesday, price dropped like a stone on Wednesday and Thursday, testing the support level at 0.9650. While further southward moved is not ruled out, the situation could change this week, especially in the case of EURUSD, for USDCHF might rally considerably when EURUSD trends downwards seriously.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bullish
Cable was subjected to strong movements last week. From Monday to Wednesday, price dipped by 320 pips, later to rise on the same day. Within Wednesday and Thursday, price went upwards 440 pips. But bulls have met a stubborn opposition at the distribution territory of 1.4500; they could not push the price beyond that accumulation territory. Should bulls succeed in pushing price beyond 1.4500, the next targets would be the distribution territories at 1.4550 and 1.4600. There are also probabilities of pullbacks along the way.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
USDJPY, which was quite choppy in the last few weeks, gave in to gravity last week. Price dropped by 300 pips, ramming into the demand level at 111.00. Although there is a clean Bearing Confirmation Pattern in the market, price could rally this week. After all, price has been unable to close below the demand level at 110.00 as it bounced off that level. JPY pairs are expected to rally this week, and USDJPY may not be an exception. So it is rational to assume that the bearish journey that occurred last week simply paved way for the bullish journey that could occur this week.

EURJPY
Dominant bias: Bullish
This cross consolidated throughout last week, not moving significantly upwards or downwards. This bullish outlook is still somewhat valid despite the ongoing consolidation, though a breakout is imminent this week. When a breakout occurs, it would most probably favor bulls, because the outlook on JPY pairs is bullish for this week. Traders are advised not to trade against JPY pairs this week.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

“We hope your January through February proves to be profitable. After one more month, March, you can evaluate your quarterly trades to make adjustments. If adjustments are necessary, make sure that they align with your trading plans.” – Tradingeducators

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (March 28 – April 1, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bullish
As expected, this pair got corrected lower last week, moving downward by 120 pips before closing while consolidating. The support line at 1.1150 has been tested and it would be breached to the downside this week. EUR would be seen weakening against major currencies before the end of this month, except in the case of EURJPY (making the bias on the market go bearish). Therefore, the support lines at 1.1100, 1.1050 and 1.1000 are vulnerable this week and next.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bearish
USDCHF moved higher by 100 pips last week, closing above the support level at 0.9750. It might be possible for USDCHF to go upwards this week, because further bearish movement on EURUSD could help it to rally. In addition, CHF itself has a probability of becoming weak soon (CHF could be weak versus other majors, save CHFJPY). Thus the resistance levels at 0.9800, 0.9850 and 0.9900 could be attained this week or next.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
This currency trading instrument went south by roughly 400 pips last week, almost reaching the accumulation territory at 1.4050. Although there is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, bulls would be seen trying to push up the price this week, with a measure of success. There is an accumulation territory at 1.4000, which would try to hinder further bearish journey. When price turns and goes upwards, the distribution territories at 1.4200, 1.4250 and 1.4300 could be attained this week or next.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
USDJPY was seen making bullish effort throughout last week. However, the bullish effort was not significant enough to bring about a change in the dominant bias. It is expected that the pair would continue moving upwards this week, owing to a bullish expectation on JPY pairs. USDJPY would move upwards by a minimum of 100 pips during the week, causing a bullish bias to form in the market.

EURJPY
Dominant bias: Neutral
This cross consolidated throughout last week, neither going below the demand zone at 125.00 nor going above the supply zone at 126.50. A breakout is imminent this week, which would most possibly favor bulls. A closer look at the market shows that the bulls are still determined to effect a rally here, which could make price to reach the supply zones at 127.00 and 127.50.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

“It's useful to remember that you may not win on any single trade, but after a series of trades you will have enough winners to make a profit in the long run.” - Andy Jordan

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (April 4 - 8, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bullish
EURUSD moved upwards by 250 pips last week, testing the resistance line at 1.1400. That resistance line has proven to be an obstacle to bulls because price was unable to close above it last week (in spite of forays into it). Price might be able to go above the resistance line eventually, but it might not be able to go far north. There is a possibility that this pair would experience a large pullback this week, which might enable it to reach the support lines at 1.1300 and 1.1250.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bearish
This currency trading instrument went down 200 pips last week, closing below the resistance level at 0.9600. The support levels at 0.9550 and 0.9500 could be breached this week. However, there might be a rally – which would be significant enough to threaten the current bearish bias. In case price moves above the resistance level at 0.9850, it would result in a clean Bullish Confirmation Pattern.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
From Monday to Wednesday, Cable went upwards by 330 pips, reaching the distribution territory at 1.4450. Bears effected further movement at that territory, causing the market to experience a bearish correction of 250 pips. The ongoing bearish correction might make price further downwards by 100 – 200 pips, but there would soon be an exponential rally in the market, which would eventually render the current bearish outlook invalid. The outlook on GBP is bright for the month of April, and as a result of this, we would see GBP gaining strength versus other major currencies. Wild fluctuations with other major currencies like AUD and NZD would be witnessed.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
There is a currently a “sell” signal in this market, owing to a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in it. Price closed below the supply level at 112.00, going towards the demand levels at 111.50 and 111.00. Long trades do not make sense in this market, until there is a clean indication of bulls’ hegemony, which would only be brought about by serious weakness in Yen. The movement for this month would mostly be bearish.

EURJPY
Dominant bias: Bullish
Bulls were able to push this popular cross to the upside until it reached the supply zone at 128.00. There has been a shallow pullback around that zone, causing the cross to close at 127.24 on April 1, 2016. Further bullish movement is possible this week, though there could be another bearish run before the end of the month. JPY pairs are expected to continue moving upwards this week (and perhaps, next week), but they would begin to go south before the end of the month.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

“Most traders… will tell you their success came from finding the approach that best suits them and pushing through it to get better and better.” – Elitetrader

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (April 11 - 15, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bullish
In the context of a downtrend, EURUSD consolidated throughout last week. One big formidable barrier to further northward journey is the resistance line 1.1400 (though the resistance line at 1.1450 was also tested). Bulls were unable to breach the resistance line at 1.1400 to the upside in spite of many forays into it. This week would be decisive for the pair. First, a breakout to the upside or the downside would happen. It would most probably be to the downside, should bulls fail to push price above the aforementioned resistance line. In case, price goes above the resistance line and remain above it, it would spell a defeat for bears.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bearish
This pair experienced a flat movement last week, not reaching, nor going below the support level at 0.9500 in spite of the fact that the bias is bearish. By the indication in the chart, the market would most likely go further south this week, which would be corroborated by the ability of USDCHF to go below the support level at 0.9500. In case the pair fails to achieve this, a considerable rally would be witnessed.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
Cable was very volatile last week – reaching a high of 1.4319 and a low of 1.4004. The overall sentiment is negative, but bulls are not keeping their fingers crossed in this situation, for they are making attempts to effect a rally. One thing should be noted: The possibility of GBP gaining stamina is very high this week. GBP might be seen strengthening versus other major pairs; an event that could start this week. Therefore, the current bearish bias on the market might be challenged and eventually invalidated.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
Since March 29, 2016, USDJPY has dropped by nearly 600 pips. Last week alone, price dropped by at least, 350 pips. This has caused a strong Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market. After all, it had been forecasted that that JPY pairs might become weak before the end of this month, and the weakness started earlier than anticipated. On USDJPY, bears are still determined to reach the demand levels at 107.50, 107.00 and 106.50.

EURJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
This cross dropped 450 pips last week alone, almost testing the demand zone at 122.50. The shallow northward effort that was witnessed around the end of the weak is cleanly negligible, for price is expected to continue its southwards journey this week, reaching the support zones at 122.50, 122.00 and 121.50. Long trades do not look rational in the market, unless there is a clear sign of Yen easing.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

“When you take action, and make enough trades, the odds may work in your favor, and you'll end up with profits. So as you trade, take an action-oriented approach. As Mark Douglas suggests in "Trading in the Zone," the more you find excuses to avoid making trades, the less likely you'll be at actually taking home profits. But if you look for an edge, and use this edge to make numerous trades, you'll increase your chances of success. In trading, there are proven strategies that work under specific market conditions. If you look hard enough, you'll find them, and use them to your advantage.” – Joe Ross (Source: Tradingeducators.com)

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (April 18 - 22, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Neutral
EURUSD traded lower last week, testing the support line at 1.1250, to close at 1.1282 on Friday. The movement of the price has essentially been sideways since the beginning of April and there is no significant directional journey till now. However, there is a possibility that bulls would effect a rally this week, which might enable price to reach the resistance lines at 1.1350, 1.1400 and 1.1450. In addition, EUR pairs could be seen strengthening against other majors.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bearish
This pair moved upwards last week, in the context of a downtrend. Price tested the support level at 0.9500 and later rose above the support level 0.9650, which means the downtrend is currently being threatened. A movement above the resistance level at 0.9750 would mean the end of the downtrend, but that would probably not happen. The outlook on USD for this week is bearish, and as such, further southward movement could be witnessed before the end of the week, which could cause price to reach the support levels at 0.9600, 0.9550 and 0.9500. This could cause the existing downtrend to be strengthened eventually.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Neutral
The GBPUSD was volatile throughout last week, with neither bulls nor bears having upper hands. There should be a directional movement this week, which would most probably be in favor of bulls. This means the market could rally this week, reaching the distribution territories at 1.4300, 1.4350 and 1.4400. The accumulation territories at 1.4100 and 1.4050 may do a good job in thwarting bearish attempts this week. Some GBP pairs might also rally, like GBPCAD.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
From April 11 to 14, this currency trading instrument trended upwards by 190 pips. On April 15, price got corrected lower, in conjunction with the existing bearish bias. This means the rally that was seen between April 11 and 14 was a mere short-term rally in the context of a downtrend. Further bearish movement is expected this week, which might make price go down by at least 150 pips. Any rallies seen this week should be taken as short-selling opportunities.

EURJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
This cross, which dropped steeply in the first week of this month, was caught in an equilibrium phase last week. Price would go out of the equilibrium phase this week, and most likely go further southward, owing to the Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market. Price closed below the supply zone at 123.00 on Friday. In case price breaks out to the south, the demand zones at 122.00 and 121.50 might be tested. There cannot be a threat to the current Bearish Confirmation Pattern unless the supply zone at 126.00 is overcome.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

“Support and resistance levels are generally more porous in volatile markets. Common sense suggests that, in these conditions, you should give the trade more room.” - Lee Bohl

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (April 25 - 29, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
This pair was bearish last week. Bulls tried to push price upwards. But as a result of severe opposition from bears, price came down on Friday, following the volatility that occurred on Thursday. There is a “sell” signal in the market, and it may probably go further downwards this week, reaching the support lines at 1.1200 and 1.1150. Price might even go below these targets, and the “sell” signal would never be invalidated until the resistance line at 1.1400 is overcome.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bullish
The current bullish movement on this pair started on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. This has led to a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, and it is likely that price would continue its bullish movement this week, reaching the resistance levels at 0.9800 and 0.9850. A movement beyond these resistance levels is even possible: though there is one obstacle in the way of USDCHF, and that is an expected strength in CHF before the end of this week. Please watch CHF pairs.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bullish
As it was mentioned last week, GBP was able to rally against certain majors, which is visible on some crosses like GBPNZD, GBPJPY, GBPCHF, EURGBP, etc. GBPUSD also was bullish last week in spite of desperate struggles of bears against it. From the accumulation territory at 1.4150 the price trended upwards, with some pullbacks on the way, reached the distribution territory at 1.4450, before the market closed on a slight retracement. Price moved upwards by roughly 300 pips last week; plus further northward movement is expected this week.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Bullish
USDJPY went upwards by 370 pips last week. At the beginning of last week, price gapped down slightly into the demand level at 108.00, and since then a rally started gradually (from Monday to Thursday). That rally gained momentum on Friday, April 22, 2016, and this has resulted in an invalidation of the recent bearish outlook on the market. The bias is now bullish and further northward movement of at least, 150 pips, is expected this week. One thing must be noted: There is also a possibility of a strong bearish movement on USDJPY (and of course, other JPY pairs) before the end of this week.

EURJPY
Dominant bias: Bullish
This currency trading instrument also went bullish last week by 360 pips, after price ran into a solid demand zone at 122.00 at the beginning of last week. On Friday, price closed above the demand zone at 125.00, now very close to the supply zone at 125.50. This has rendered the recent bearish outlook on the market useless. The market would continue moving north this week, since there is now a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, but that does not rule out probability00 of a pullback before the end of this month.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

“Markets are a reflection of rational human behavior — whether 5min or monthly chart. This fractal nature of markets is due to humans’ psychological make-up. Until we evolve into a new species, price action will always be the same.” – Gabriel Grammatidis

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (May 2 - 6, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bullish
The EURUSD moved upwards 230 pips last week – an action that has resulted in a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the 4-hour chart. The resistance line at 1.1450 has been tested and it would be breached to the upside, as price targets other resistance lines at 1.1500 and 1.1550. However, the month of May 2016 would be challenging for bulls because EUR would be weak in some cases. There is an exception of course, like EURAUD, because AUD would be weak against other currencies in May.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bearish
This pair merely went in the opposite direction to EURUSD. Price dropped 220 pips and later closed below the resistance level at 0.9600. There is now a bearish outlook on the market and further southwards movement is possible this week, Bears might push the pair towards the support lines at 0.9550 and 0.9500. There cannot be a reversal of this bearish movement unless there is a serious weakness in EURUSD.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bullish
GBPUSD was able to rally gradually last week, reaching the distribution territory at 1.4650. Bulls fought desperately at the distribution territory at 1.4600; only to meet another strong opposition at the distribution territory at 1.4650. Bulls should be able to overcome the opposition at this distribution territory, owing to the bullish outlook on GBPUSD (and most other GBP pairs like GBPAUD and GBPNZD) for the month of May 2016. Price would move up further by 200 pips this week.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
This currency trading instrument went sideways from Monday to Wednesday, and then dropped like a stone on Thursday. Price dropped by 500 pips, closing below the supply level at 106.50. There has been a bearish signal in the market, including other JPY pairs. This bearish movement is supposed to continue this week as price action is characterized by lower highs and lower lows. Short-term rallies can be taken as short-selling opportunities.

EURJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
Just as it was mentioned in the last forecast, EURJPY cross first trudged upwards from April 25 to 27, and then plummeted. The drop was significant enough to overturn the recent bullish gains, causing a Bearish Confirmation Pattern to form in the market. Price has gone below the supply zones at 124.00, 123.00 and 122.00, reaching out for the demand zones beneath them. The outlook on JPY pairs is bearish for the month of May. Therefore, long trades do not make sense here until there is a strong bullish reversal in the market: something that may take place before the end of May.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

"The goal of a successful trader is to make the best trades. Money is secondary." – Dr. Alexander Elder

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (May 9 - 13, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Neutral
EURUSD went upwards on Monday and Tuesday, topping at 1.1615. Since then, price has come down by over 200 pips, closing at 1.1403 on Friday. It is clear that the gains made by bulls have been erased by bears, but the bias on the market would not really turn bearish until price goes below the support line at 1.1300. That is exactly what is expected this week: The outlook on EUR is bearish and the currency would be weakened against other majors. By the end of this week, there could be a Bearish Confirmation Pattern on EURUSD.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bullish
Between Monday and Tuesday, this pair dipped into the support level at 0.9450. From that support level, further dip was rejected as price assumed a clean northwards movement, closing on Friday, above the support level at 0.9700. That was a movement of over 280 pips! This week, the market area to be attacked first would the resistance level at 0.9750, after which bulls would carry their battle towards other resistance levels at 0.9800 and 0.9850. The bullishness on USDCHF ought to have become more conspicuous by the end of this week.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bullish
Here, bulls managed to push price towards the distribution territory at 1.4750 – a juncture at which they were overpowered by bears. Price has come down 320 pips since then, closing below the distribution territory at 1.4450. What next? Since the outlook on USD is bright for this week, GBPUSD might have some difficulties going upwards (although that is not an impossibility). On the other hand, GBP would be strong in its own right, and it may be seen going upwards versus other currencies like EUR, AUD, and NZD.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
This currency trading instrument simply consolidated throughout last week, though in the context of a downtrend. The possible direction on USDJPY is ambiguous for this week. We might see bears pushing the pair further southward; whereas it is a probability that could be frustrated by expected stamina in USD. The monthly outlook on JPY pairs is bearish till around the end of the May, when they might rally.

EURJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
Last week, this cross also behaved almost similarly to USDJPY. There were fleeting upwards and downwards swings on the cross, while the bias remained bearish. This week, we could see further bearish movement on the cross, which might take price below the demand zones at 121.50 and 121.00. Since the current outlook on JPY pairs is bearish and EUR is also expected to be weakened, EURJPY should decline further.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

“I was born in San Juan City, Argentina. It is very close to the Andes Mountains. I have a degree in Business Administration. I've always been interested in trading, but what really forced my hand, and made me absolutely need to become a full-time trader, was a conversation I once had with a professor. When he learned I was experimenting with different automated trading algorithms, he laughed and told me I was a fool to think I could beat the market. Challenge accepted! From that moment, I became a trader!” - Maximiliano Lepez (Source: Collective2.com)

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (May 16 - 20, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
This pair simply moved sideways in the first few days of last week – a result of deadlock between bulls and the bears. On May 12, 2016, the bears were pummeled and forced to give way, as price moved south vividly, just as it was mentioned in the last forecast. Further southward movement is anticipated this week, because USD is supposed to gain strength versus a number of major currencies, like AUD, CAD, NZD; with EUR included.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bullish
As it was forecasted before, USDCHF managed to go upwards last week, in spite of desperate opposition from bears. The bullish movement last week was not up to 100 pips. Price is now around the resistance level at 0.9750 (below our targets for last week). The targets at 0.9800 and 0.9850 are still valid: Bulls would push the market upwards, plus price could even go beyond those resistance levels.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Neutral
GBPUSD was caught in an equilibrium phase throughout last week, save the slight dip that was witnessed on Friday. In the past several days, price has not been able to stay above the distribution territory at 1.4500 or below the accumulation territory at 1.4350. A breakout is imminent this week, which would favor bears because USD could gain some stamina this week. However, GBP would make some gains against other currencies, especially AUD and NZD, since the outlook on them is bearish for this week.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Neutral
USDJPY moved upwards on Monday and Tuesday, and then consolidated for the rest of last week. Since this pair, just like most other pairs, did not experience strong movement last week, the bias on it has turned neutral in the short-term. However there is a probability of tour de force this week, which could trigger a significant movement on USDJPY, driving it above the supply level at 110.50 or below the demand level at 107.50.

EURJPY
Dominant bias: Neutral
The initial bullish gains that were seen on the first few days of last week were forfeited as a result of a bearish movement that occurred in the last few days of the week. There is a considerable degree of uncertainty surrounding this cross at the moment. But a major determinant of the movement for this week would be conditions affecting Yen, for it to rally or lose strength. Those conditions would also have impact on other JPY pairs.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (May 23 - 27, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
EURUSD went downwards last week, closing below the resistance line at 1.1250. There is a bearish bias on the market, and the support lines at 1.1150 and 1.1100 could be tested. The only thing that can make this happen is continuous stamina in USD as compared to EUR; for the latter would try to gain some stamina this week, against other pairs (please watch EURCAD, EURCHF and EURJPY). Any show of vulnerability in USD might effect a rally in the market.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bullish
Based on the expectation last week, this pair was able to continue its northward journey. Price moved north roughly by 160 pips, closing slightly above the support level at 0.9900. There is one threat to the existing bullish outlook – the possibility of a rally in CHF. CHF might rally this week, which would affect CHF pairs, and as such, USDCHF would face some difficulties in journeying further upwards. For the pair to go upwards, USD must showcase more stamina that it has at the present.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Neutral
Last week, GBP gained strength versus other currencies as expected, and surprisingly against USD. GBPUSD went upwards by over 300 pips, reached the distribution territory at 1.4650, where the buying pressure was truncated. Further bullish movement would have resulted in a clean Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, but as bears performed a check on the bullish movement, price got corrected by 140 pips, thereby forcing the market back into a neutral territory. There would be mixed signals in the market this week, since GBP would be strong versus some currencies, while weak versus some currencies. In case of GBPUSD, further rally is possible.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Bullish
This market went upward more than 170 pips last week, getting to the supply level at 110.50. There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, and price might go further upwards this week, reaching the supply levels at 111.00, 111.50, and 112.00. There are demand levels at 109.00 and 109.50, which should resist bears’ machinations. The bullish outlook would make sense as long as price does not go below those demand levels.

EURJPY
Dominant bias: Neutral
The EUR/JPY simply moved sideways last week, consolidating between the demand zone at 123.00 and the supply zone at 124.00. Possibility of a breakout is very strong this week, as price may assume a serious trending mode. However, when a breakout does occur, it could be in favor of bulls. Price might target the supply levels at 125.00 and 126.00; plus bullish effort would also be witnessed on certain other JPY pairs, like CHFJPY.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

“When a trader sees the market as it really is, rather than what they want to see, the act of trading becomes more relaxed and they become more confident and successful. Does this sound like the type of experience you want trading to be?” – Rebecca Price (Van Tharp Institute)

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (May 30 – June 3, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
Last week, EURUSD went downwards 110 pips, just as it was projected. There is a bearish signal in the market, which would cause its weakness to hold out, as long as USD is stronger than EUR. The pair would continue trudging south this week, unless USD shows any signs of vulnerability. This means that EURUSD could rally in case USD shows any signs of weakness. EUR might also experience some gains against certain currencies.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bullish
This pair trended sideways last week, and moved slightly higher on Friday. There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, coupled with a possibility of testing the resistance levels at 0.9950 and 1.0000 (a level of parity of USD with CHF). However, it is unlikely that the price would ever go above the resistance level at 1.0000, because a probable threat from CHF remains. CHF might gain strength versus certain majors – which could also affect USDCHF.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bullish
Cable moved upwards 200 pips, testing the distribution territory at 1.4700 on May 25. Price was unable to stay above that distribution territory, since bears fought successfully to halt further rally, effecting an 80-pip correction. This week, the probability of Cable rallying further is higher than the probability of it going south significantly. The outlook on the market is bullish, though constant presence of disgruntled bears is a threat.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Neutral
This market was caught in an equilibrium phase throughout last week, with no bullish or bearish victory. Nonetheless, a closer examination reveals that bulls are still willing to push price northward; and they would gladly do so when conditions become favorable to them. In case bulls win, a bullish breakout to the supply levels at 111.00 and 111.50 might be witnessed. The possibility of a northward breakout would be in place as long as price does not go below the demand levels at 108.50 and 108.00.

EURJPY
Dominant bias: Neutral
This currency trading instrument has been going sideways for 2 weeks. The sideways phase would be in force until price crosses below the demand zone at 121.50, or above the supply zone at 125.50. Those demand and supply zones are strong, and unless price overcomes one of them, this sideways movement would remain. The longer the sideways movement is in place, the more imminent a breakout is (and the more directional the breakout would be when it occurs).

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

“The big dogs are making an average profit over lots of occurrences utilizing modern technology and the plethora of ways that they can trade. Even so, the little guys with smaller sized accounts can complete with them and, in many cases, outperform them. That’s because they are small and don’t have liquidity issues or regulatory restraints.” – Phil Newton (Source: Trade2win)

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (June 6 - 10, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bullish
This pair moved sideways from Monday to Friday, in the context of a downtrend. The downtrend was forcefully overturned as the pair shot skywards by 220 pips on Friday, closing at 1.1365 on the same day. The bias has turned bullish, but there is a great challenge for bulls this week. While the pair could go further north, there would be a serious bearish correction when USD gains stamina versus EUR. The outlook on EUR is bearish for this month. EUR could be become weak versus other currencies – and USD is no exception.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bearish
USDCHF tested the resistance level at 0.9950 several times last week, but it could not stay above it (let alone reaching the resistance level at 1.0000, which is a parity area). Price consolidated till Friday and then broke downwards, almost reaching the support level at 0.9750. This significant bearish breakout has resulted in a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, and price could reach the support levels at 0.9700 and 0.9650, as long as bears gain upper hands here. Should EURUSD loses its strength, USDCHF would experience some buying pressure.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
GBPUSD first attempted to go up last week, tested the distribution territory at 1.4700, and then moved south 300 pips, reaching the accumulation territory at 1.4400, before price made a rally effort on Friday, June 3. Most pairs and crosses would experience low volatility in June, save GBP pairs and NZD pairs (for NZD also would become strong versus other currencies in June). Yes, GBP pairs would experience high volatility this month; which would be a series of bearish and bullish movements. This week, some buying pressure might be witnessed on GBPUSD, for the accumulation territory at 1.4400 has checked repeated bearish attacks.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
This currency trading instrument went sideways on Monday and Tuesday, and began to drop like a stone from Tuesday. The bearish movement on Friday was the strongest, bringing the market to at least, 420 pips towards the south last week. Although this bearish trend could reverse this week, it is possible for price to reach the demand levels 106.00 and 105.50 before the potential reversal.

EURJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
This cross made some effort to go upwards last week, but this effort was rendered futile after price reached the supply zone at 124.00. Since price could not break above that supply zone, a clean decline was witnessed as price came down, closing below the supply zone at 121.50. Just like USDJPY, it is possible for price to reach the demand zones at 120.50 and 120.00; even if there would be a bullish reversal after that.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (June 13 - 17, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Neutral
For the most part of May 2016, EURUSD was in a downtrend. On June 3, a strong bullish breakout led to a bullish signal, but price was unable to continue moving up continuously in the following week, which was last week. Price simply went up 50 pips, hit the resistance line at 1.1400 and then nosedived. This has forced the market into a neutral territory, since the bullish gains of June 3 had been rendered useless by the strong bearish correction that took place within June 9 and 10 (whereas bears cannot claim any dominance until price goes below the resistance line at 1.1150). It is likely that EURUSD would continue to go downwards this week, though the bias may not turn bearish until the resistance line at 1.1150 is broken to the downside. For the bias to turn bullish again, price needs to go above the resistance line at 1.1350.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bearish
This pair decline 180 pips last week, going briefly below the support level at 0.9600 before closing above that support level. Since June 3, 2016, price has declined by 300 pips, reaching a weekly low of 0.9577. The support levels at 0.9600, 0.9550 and 0.9500 are the next targets for bears this week. Any movement above the resistance level at 0.9800 would put the bearish outlook in a precarious position.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
Contrary to expectation, Cable moved south by 460 pips last week, after testing the distribution territory at 1.4650. Prior to this, price moved upwards by 260 pips between Monday and Tuesday. It has been mentioned that GBP pairs would experience strong volatility this month (plus NZD pairs). This is because GBP pairs usually move strongly in June while most other pairs experience low volatility. Bremain/Brexit issues are only a catalyst that will spur the usual strong movements on GBP pairs this June. This week, GBP might behave like it did last week: We would witness strong bullish and bearish movements.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
USD/JPY merely went flat throughout last week. Even the faint bullish attempt that was seen on Monday and Tuesday meant nothing when compared to the ongoing bearish outlook. There is a possibility that JPY pairs would trend downwards this week, and so, USDJPY might go further south to test the demand levels at 106.00 and 105.50.

EURJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
Between June 6 and 7, this cross went upwards close to 170 pips, but further rally was rejected at the supply zone at 122.50. From that zone, price went down 250 pips, to close at 120.37 on Friday. There is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, and further decline could be witnessed this week. Therefore, the demand zones at 120.00 and 110.00 would be interesting to watch.

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (June 20 - 24, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Neutral
All bearish pulls EURUSD experienced last week were rendered useless by bullish effort. Price did not go above the resistance line at 1.1300 last week; nor did it stay below the support line at 1.1150. The impasse between bulls and bears has enforced the neutrality of the market, and unless price goes above the resistance line at 1.1400 (causing a bullish bias), or goes below the support line at 1.1100 (causing a bearish bias), the neutrality of price would continue. This week, there is going to be strong moment on EURUSD, which would most likely favor bears. This pair is quite choppy right now.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bearish
This pair moved sideways last week – performing only upswings and downswings in the context of a downtrend. The support level at 0.9550 ought to be breached to the downside for the bearish journey to continue. However, further decline on EURUSD would trigger a rally on the pair, which would result in a Bullish Confirmation Pattern when price goes above the resistance level at 0.9800. A strong buying pressure is required for this to happen.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
This week, there would not be any unprecedented movements on GBP pairs (just like Grexit caused no special movements in the markets), save strong movements that are not more than anything that has been witnessed so far this year. Surprise movements do not usually happen when they are anticipated. What usually cause extremely serious movements in the markets are events that happen unexpectedly. Likely effects of Brexit have been anticipated, as well as likely effects of Bremain. Therefore, they would not cause any movements stronger than what we have seen on GBP pairs this year. Throughout Thursday, June 23, GBPUSD (and most other GBP pairs) will go in one direction with little or no reversal, but there would be nothing graver than normal. The outlook on the pair is bearish and further southward movement could possibly be witnessed this week.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
Just as it was forecasted, USDJPY declined further by 300 pips last week, going below the demand level at 104.00, before things went sideways again. Price has dropped 550 pips since the beginning of this month, and the downtrend is likely to continue, as price targets the demand levels at 103.50 and 103.00.

EURJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
This is a bear market, just like most other JPY pairs. There is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, giving a possibility of price reaching the demand zones at 117.00, 116.00, and 115.00 this week or next. The demand levels at 117.00 and 116.00 were tested last week, and they could be retested this week. One thing should be noted, bearish pressure on EUR would make it difficult for EURJPY to make any significant rally this week.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

“You don't have to trade perfectly. You just have to trade profitably. Put a single trade in perspective. It's just one trade of the many trades you will make in your lifetime. You may lose or you may win, but the outcome of a single trade does not matter. What matters are your overall profits across a series of trades, not just a single trade.” – Joe Ross

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (June 27 – July 1, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
This pair tested the resistance line at 1.1400, and went above it briefly. Price could not stay above that resistance line: It tumbled by 500 pips before a 200-pip bullish correction occurred on Friday. The bias is bearish, and further bearish movement is possible, but it may not be more than 300 pips downwards. Price might also journey upwards this week, owing to the fact that the extreme bearish movement that occurred on Friday could bring opportunities to buy.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bullish
USDCHF was essentially a flat market in the context of a downtrend, before the strong bearish movement on EURUSD forced it to break out upwards. Price moved upwards 250 pips, reaching the resistance level at 0.9800, and the got corrected by 100 pips. For the bias to remain bullish, EURUSD needs to continue moving south; because the events affecting EURUSD are what would determine the movement of USDCHF (which is being currently affected by inertia on its own).

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
On Friday, June 24, 2016, Cable experienced its strongest bearish movement in recent years. Price dropped by 1700 pips, reaching the low of 1.3230. Price later performed a 500-pip bullish correction, later closing at 1.3682 that Friday. Normally, the outlook on GBP pairs is bearish, and continuous selling pressure on Cable is a possibility. However, the extreme market situation would also bring some opportunities to go long, for those who are very good at catching falling knives. The markets could open with gaps next week. While things are currently bearish on GBP pairs, recovery would gradually or smoothly return to the markets.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
The Brexit votes outcome also had bearish effects on JPY pairs, and that was exactly what brought about a bearish momentum on USDJPY, which was consolidating in the context of a downtrend prior to that time. What happened to this market on Friday simply brought more emphasis on the long-term bearish trend, which is also visible on the daily and weekly charts. Although the outlook on JPY pairs is bearish, the 700-pip decline that was witnessed on Friday would bring about a rally within the next several trading days, as bulls seem to have reached the end of their tether.

EURJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
This currency trading instrument dropped 1200 pips on Friday, thus forfeiting the 350-pip bullish gains it saw within Monday and Thursday. The bias on 4-hour chat, daily chart and weekly chart is bearish, but price has already encountered very formidable demand zones on Friday. While selling pressure is present in the market, we may witness some bullish attempt in the next few weeks.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (July 4 - 8, 2016)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
This pair moved upwards 150 pips last week, testing the resistance line at 1.1150, in the context of a downtrend. The outlook on EURUSD remains bearish for this week. For the outlook to turn bullish, price needs to go upwards by at least, 300 pips from here. Otherwise, the support lines at 1.1100, 1.1050 and 1.1000 would be tested this week. Those support lines were recently breached, and they would be breached again as the bearish movement continues.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bullish
USDCHF was essentially a flat market before June 23, 2016. It was pushed upwards only by fact of the strong decline in EURUSD. Price made a faint bullish attempt last week, but it met an opposition from bears, who checked further bullish movement, and forced the price to bend downwards (in the 4-hour chart). The bullish signal on USDCHF is in a precarious situation; which means that further bearish correction could cancel the bullish signal, thus forcing price back into the neutral territory, in which it was before June 23. This week, bulls need to keep on pushing price north in order to avoid bears’ victory. There is one big roadblock ahead: CHF would soon gain a serious stamina this month and it could bring about some selling pressure on USDCHF, while having visible bearish effects on other CHF pairs (save CHFJPY).

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
Cable went virtually flat last week, in the context of a downtrend. There are Bearish Confirmation Patterns on 4-hour, weekly, and monthly charts, which all signal serious weakness on Cable. Apart from this, there is a bearish expectation on Cable (and other GBP pairs); just as it was in the last two weeks. While bulls may attempt to push up price by a few hundred pips at most, bears would end up as winners. In this month, GBP pairs would experience strong movements.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
USDJPY also went flat last week, in the context of a downtrend. It would be difficult for bulls to push the pair upwards significantly because there are adamant supply levels above them, and because the outlook on JPY pairs is bearish for this week and for this month. JPY pairs are expected to assume major bearish movements this week (which could last till early October 2016). USDJPY would trend downwards by a minimum of 200 pips before the end of this week or by early next week.

EURJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
While the major bias is bearish, this cross went upward 250 pips last week. There are supply zones at 115.50 and 116.50, and while price could possibly test them this week, bears would still continue to dominate the market, putting more emphasis on the major bias, which is also visible on higher timeframes. Just like other JPY pairs, this cross could go further and further downwards in the next few months, though that does not rule out the possibility of noteworthy bullish efforts.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:

“About fifteen years ago, I moved to the U.S. and worked with several CTAs. This was the point in my career that I made the decision to eliminate all human emotion from my trading. I became a purely systematic trader. For me, emotion and subjectivity are the enemies. Good traders follow systems. Systems have rules.” - Francisco London (Source: Collective2.com)
