Tuesday 26th January: Technical Outlook

26 Jan 2021

Key risk events today:

US CB Consumer Confidence.

(Previous analysis as well as outside sources – italics).

EUR/USD:

Areas of consideration:

  • H4 resistance at 1.22/1.2180 (composed of the 1.22 figure, a collection of Fibonacci ratios and an AB=CD bearish formation [red arrows]) provided sufficient oomph to overpower buying and take the currency pair under 1.2150 into European hours on Monday. Therefore, 1.22/1.2180 and 1.2150 are noted as immediate resistances to be mindful of on the H4 scale, targeting at least 1.21.
  • The 1.22 level is also noteworthy resistance on the H4, fixed just south of the lower side of weekly supply at 1.2420-1.2214. Consequently, 1.2214/1.22 is an area to be watchful of should buyers find some grip to push higher.
  • Daily resistance at 1.2165—an active S/R level since June 2010—is a base currently in the spotlight. Downside targets on the daily timeframe are seen at trend line support, taken from the low 1.0774, plotted just north of support at 1.1965, a previous Quasimodo resistance level. North of 1.2165, supply drawn from 1.2344-1.2279 (nestled within the walls of weekly supply mentioned above at 1.2420-1.2214) could work its way back in sight.

Markets Update:

Asian stock markets are mostly lower on Friday, tracking the mixed cues overnight from Wall Street and following the recent strong gains leading up to U.S. President Joe Biden’s inauguration.

Optimism about ramped up efforts to combat the coronavirus and more stimulus under the new Biden administration have helped to prop up the markets in recent days.

Mainland Chinese stocks closed mixed, with the Shanghai composite down 0.4% while the Shenzhen component rose 0.7%. In Japan, the Nikkei 225 slipped 0.4% while the Topix index shed 0.2%. Over in Australia, the S&P/ASX 200 dipped 0.3%.

The U.S. dollar index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of its peers, was at 90.219 following earlier levels above 90.4. Crude oil prices drifted lower on Thursday after data from the American Petroleum Institute showed an increase in U.S. crude stockpiles last week. Also weighing oil down was worries that new pandemic restrictions in China will curb fuel demand in the world’s biggest oil importer.

Upcoming Events:

  • 08:30 AM GMT – (EUR) German Flash Manufacturing PMI

Friday 22nd January: Technical Outlook

22 Jan 2021

Key risk events today:

UK Retail Sales m/m; Eurozone, UK and US Flash Manufacturing and Flash Services PMIs; Canada Retail Sales m/m.

(Previous analysis as well as outside sources – italics).

EUR/USD:

Areas of consideration:

  • The round number 1.21 and trend line support combination (taken from the high 1.2344) persuaded a short-term bullish scenario on Thursday, elevating EUR/USD to 1.2150 resistance. As can be seen from the H4 chart, buyers attempted to overthrow 1.2150, yet have failed to find acceptance above the level due to daily resistance priced in at 1.2165.
  • Apart from daily resistance, H4 also shows an area of Fibonacci confluence set just south of 1.22 around 1.2184, together with an AB=CD bearish formation (red arrows). As such, between 1.22 and 1.2184 could be a resistance area sellers welcome today. In addition to this, the 1.22 figure is supported by the lower edge of weekly supply pictured at 1.2420-1.2214.
