Thursday 29th October: Technical Outlook and Review

Key risk events today:

BoJ Outlook Report, Monetary Policy Statement and Press Conference; US Advance GDP q/q; US Advance GDP Price Index q/q; US Unemployment Claims; ECB Main Refinancing Rate, Monetary Policy Statement and Press Conference; US Pending Home Sales m/m.

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

EUR/USD:

Risk aversion dominated market movement in recent trading, despite the safe-haven buck trading off best levels. EUR/USD sailed through the 1.18 level on the H4 timeframe, with enough force to take on August’s opening value at 1.1771 and test October’s opening value from 1.1730. Traders will also acknowledge a 61.8% Fibonacci retracement ratio at 1.1714 and a 1.17 handle lies beneath here, a level that capped downside on a number of occasions since October.

From the weekly timeframe, in spite of recent selling, we remain holding north of minor support at 1.1621, with the possibility of a run to the 2018 yearly opening value at 1.2004. Also important to consider is we recently unseated trend line resistance (mid-July), taken from the high 1.2555.

The technical position on the daily timeframe also still exhibits scope to explore higher terrain, with little seen in the way of obvious resistance preventing bulls from taking a run at resistance coming in from 1.1940. It is also worth acknowledging this base is sited just under weekly resistance mentioned above at 1.2004.

  • (USD) Core Durable Goods Orders m/m 0.80% vs 0.30% expected 

Markets Update: 

Asian stock markets are mixed on Wednesday with investors turning cautious amid worries about the recent spike in coronavirus cases in the U.S. and Europe on global economic growth and on receding hopes for new U.S. stimulus before the presidential election. 

Shares in mainland China were higher on the day, with the Shanghai composite up 0.5% while the Shenzhen component advanced 0.9%. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index dipped 0.3%, as of its final hour of trading. Shares in Australia were higher, as the S&P/ASX 200 added 0.1%. In Japan, both the Nikkei and the Topix closed 0.3% lower. 

The U.S. dollar index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of its peers, sat at 93.119 after seeing levels around 92.8 earlier in the week. Investors also bought back U.S. Treasuries, another safe-haven asset, pushing down their yields. Oil prices gave up much of their gains made the previous day as a jump in U.S. crude inventories and surging COVID-19 cases raised fears of an oversupply of oil and weak fuel demand.

  • 02:00 PM GMT – (CAD) BOC Monetary Policy Report 
  • 02:00 PM GMT – (CAD) BOC Rate Statement 
  • 02:00 PM GMT – (CAD) Overnight Rate

Wednesday 28th October: Technical Outlook and Review

Key risk events today:

Australia CPI q/q; BoC Monetary Policy Report, Rate Statement, Overnight Rate and Press Conference.

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

EUR/USD:

Europe’s shared currency, as you can see, regained some composure following a mild dip under the 1.18 handle against a broadly softer US dollar on Tuesday, with little motivation derived from stronger-than-expected US durable goods orders.

Breaching 1.18, as aired in previous research, shines the spotlight on August’s opening value at 1.1771. To the upside, aside from last Wednesday’s session peak at 1.1880, H4 Quasimodo resistance at 1.1888 is considered the next target. What’s interesting here is the level is sited close by a 127.2% Fibonacci projection point at 1.1895, the 1.19 handle, along with an AB=CD correction point at 1.1905 and a 1.618 BC projection plotted at 1.1919 (red zone).

Tuesday 27th October: Technical Outlook and Review

Key risk events today:

US Core Durable Goods Orders m/m and Durable Goods Orders m/m; US CB Consumer Confidence.

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

EUR/USD:

As the US dollar index latched onto a safe-haven bid from daily support at 92.62 on Monday, Europe’s shared currency rotated lower and bottomed north of the 1.18 handle on the H4 heading into London hours. Breaching the latter shines the spotlight on August’s opening value at 1.1771 and an AB=CD bullish pattern (green arrows) at 1.1769. Aside from last Wednesday’s session peak at 1.1880, H4 Quasimodo resistance at 1.1888 is considered the next upside target. What’s interesting here is the level is sited close by a 127.2% Fibonacci projection point at 1.1895, the 1.19 handle, along with an AB=CD correction point at 1.1905 and a 1.618 BC projection plotted at 1.1919.

From the weekly timeframe, we remain holding north of minor support at 1.1621, with the possibility of a run to the 2018 yearly opening value at 1.2004. Also important, we recently unseated trend line resistance (mid-July), taken from the high 1.2555.

The U.S. has seen its highest ever number of new COVID-19 cases in the past two days, while France also set unwanted case records and Spain announced a state of emergency.
