LiteForex analitics. Brent Crude Oil: general review

Current trend

Oil quotes show mixed dynamics.
After growing at the beginning of the week related to Iran's accusations of secretly developing nuclear weapons, they drastically corrected to 72.20 mark. On Wednesday, the instrument was under pressure from the EIA weekly report on US oil reserves. According to the release, the stock of crude oil increased by 6.218 million barrels, significantly exceeding forecasts. Gasoline stocks also rose by 1.171 million barrels instead of the expected reduction. The volume of oil production in the US reached 10.619 million barrels per day.
At present, investors are focused on the development of the situation surrounding the Iran nuclear deal: Donald Trump intends to leave it and introduce new sanctions. Representatives of the Islamic Republic said that in this case the agreement would lose its meaning and enrichment of uranium in Iran could be resumed, which would undoubtedly lead to increased tensions in the region and support for oil prices. Trump defined May 12 as the deadline for the final decision on the nuclear deal.

Support and resistance

Currently, the price tends to the level of 71.87 (Murray [6/8], the midline of Bollinger Bands). In its breakdown, the decline may continue to 70.30 (Murray [5/8]) and 68.75 (Murray [4/8]) marks. However, Stochastic approaching the oversold zone suggests a possible beginning of growth to the levels of 75.00 (Murray [7/8]) and 76.56 (Murray [8/8]).
Support levels: 71.87, 70.30, 68.75.
Resistance levels: 73.43, 75.00, 75.56.

Trading tips

Short positions may be opened below the level of 71.87 with targets at 70.30, 68.75 and stop-loss at 72.40.
Long positions may be opened above the level of 73.43 with the target at 75.00 and stop-loss at 73.00.
Implementation time: 5-7 days.

LiteForex analitics. EUR/USD: general review

Current trend

This week, the pair dropped to the area of the lower border of the main trading range to the level of 1.1962 ([0/8]), where it is still traded.
The American currency is affected by the number of contradicting factors. On the one hand, it is pressured by the results of the Fed meeting. The interest rate remained unchanged at the previous level of 1.75% while in the statement investors didn’t see any hints on an acceleration of the pace of its increases. At the same time, it was noted that inflation is close to its target level of 2.0%, economic risks are balanced, and the current state of the economy assumes further rate hikes. On the other hand, the Dollar is supported by a start of negotiations between the US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Vice Premier of China Liu He in Beijing. Direct negotiations between officials of their status give investors room for optimism, though experts warn not to expect immediate results.
Today the market is waiting for the publication of April data on the American labor market. Unemployment rate is expected to decrease from 4.1% to 4.0%, and the number of non-farm jobs to increase from 103K to 192K.

Support and resistance

The technical picture is uncertain. Bollinger Bands diverge, confirming the downtrend, and MACD histogram grows in the negative zone, indicating that the decline may continue to 1.1900 and 1.1840 marks. However, one cannot exclude an upward correction to 1.2085 and 1.2146 marks.
Support levels: 1.1962, 1.1900, 1.1840.
Resistance levels: 1.2023, 1.2085, 1.2146.

Trading tips

Short positions may be opened from 1.1950 mark with targets at 1.1900, 1.1840 and stop-loss at 1.2000.
Long positions may be opened from the level of 1.2023 with targets of 1.2085, 1.2146 and the stop-loss at 1.1980.

LiteForex analitics. EUR/USD: general review

Current trend

The pair continues to decline for the third consecutive week and today has reached its lowest level since December at 1.1870 mark.

EUR is crushed by weak data on GDP, inflation, and retail sales in the Eurozone. USD is supported by the expectation that the Fed will continue to raise the interest rate.
Today, the market is focused on the statements of American politicians. At the conference in Switzerland, the Fed head Jerome Powell noted that the market has already received a signal about intention to increase rates and should no longer be surprised at these actions. In the evening, President Trump should announce his decision on the Iranian nuclear deal. Experts believe that the US will withdraw from the agreement. Then, new sanctions may be introduced or the parties may try to conclude a new treaty. Other participants - France, Britain, and Iran - are strongly opposed to unilateral actions by the US, and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that the termination of the agreement would be a historical mistake. Breaking the deal could put pressure on USD and substantially support oil prices.

Support and resistance

The instrument tends to 1.1840 mark (Murray [-2/8]) and, in its breakdown, can continue the decline to 1.1780 (Murray [1/8], H4) and 1.1715 (Murray [8/8], W1) marks. With a reverse breakout of 1.1900 mark (Murray [-1/8]), an upward correction 1.1962 (Murray [0/8]) 1.2023 (Murray [1/8]) and 1.2085 (Murray [2/8]) marks is likely to develop.
Support levels: 1.1840, 1.1780, 1.1715.
Resistance levels: 1.1962, 1.2023, 1.2085.

Trading tips

Short positions may be opened below 1.1840 with targets at 1.1780, 1.1715 and stop-loss at 1.1880.
Long positions may be opened from the level of 1.1910 with targets at 1.1962, 1.2023 and the stop-loss at 1.1870.

LiteForex analitics. WTI Crude Oil: general analysis

Current trend

During the week, oil prices were growing and now are trading around 71.50 after EIA Crude Oil Stocks change release on Wednesday, which decreased more than expected, by 2.197 million barrel. Gas resources decreased by 2.055 million barrel and distillates – by 6.674 million barrel.
The investors are focused on Iran. After America left Iranian nuclear agreement, the traders expect Trump administration to imply sanctions, which can significantly restrict Iranian oil export. Now it is the third OPEC country, which shares 4% of the world oil market and exports 3.8 million barrel per day. US sanctions can make a shortage in the market, which can be used by competitors. Saudi Arabia can increase the production: its representatives have stated they would cooperate with “black gold” consumers to minimize the effect form Iranian oil supply decrease. Iranian quota within OPEC+ Agreement can be redistributed. The Organization plans to discuss it at the end of the month. US shale oil producers can increase its part, too.

Support and resistance

The key “bullish” level if 71.87 (Murray [8/8]), the breakout of which will let the price grow to the levels of 72.65 (Murray [+1/8]) and 73.43 (Murray [+2/8]). However, the reversal of Stochastic in the overbought area allows the development of the correction to the levels of 70.31 (Murray [6/8], the middle line of Bollinger Bands) and 69.53 (Murray [5/8]).
Resistance levels: 71.87, 72.65, 73.43.
Support levels: 71.09, 70.30, 69.53.

Trading tips

Long positions can be opened above the level of 71.87 with the targets at 72.65, 73.43 and stop loss near the level of 71.50.

On D1 chart, the instrument rebounded from the 0.7446 mark ([5/8]) and approaches the level of 0.7568 ([6/8]) near the midline of Bollinger Bands. It is seen as the key for "bulls", its breakout can lead to an increase to the area of 0.7690 ([7/8]) and 0.7812 ([8/8]) marks. Otherwise, the price may return to the May lows in the area of 0.7446 and fall below the level of 0.7324 ([4/8], the center of the trading range). Technical indicators generally allow growth: Stochastic is directed upwards, and MACD histogram is reducing in the negative zone.

LiteForex analitics. WTI Crude Oil: general analysis

Current trend

Today the oil price is trying to grow from the level of 70.31, where it was corrected to on Friday after the Energy Minister of UAE Suhail Al Mazrouei noted that OPEC represented by UAE, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia can balance the restriction of Iranian “black gold” supply. The decrease of supply in the market after the implementation of US sanctions against Iran is now estimated within the range of 0.5–1.5 million barrel per day.
The market ignored Baker Hughes Rig Count release, which increased from 834 to 844 units last week. As the prices have significantly increased, the strengthening of American shale oil production is not surprising.
Iranian authorities are trying to keep its share of oil market: Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has visited China. The experts suppose the parties to negotiate upon the supplies after US sanctions implementation.

Support and resistance

The price strengthens at the level of 70.31 (Murray [+1/8]). Stochastic, reversing in the oversold area, restricts the growth. The consolidation of the price below the level of 70.31 will let it fall to the levels of 69.53 (Murray [5/8], H4) and 68.75 (Murray [8/8], the middle line of Bollinger Bands). If the price cannot consolidate above the level of 71.10 (Murray [7/8], H4) the growth to the levels of 71.87 (Murray [+2/8]) and 72.65 (Murray [+1/8], H4) is possible.
Resistance levels: 71.10, 71.87, 72.65.
Support levels: 70.30, 69.53, 68.75.

Trading tips

Short positions can be opened below the level of 70.31 with the targets at 69.53, 68.75 and stop loss near the level of 70.60.
Long positions can be opened above the level of 71.10 with the targets at 71.87, 72.65 and stop loss 70.80.
Implementation period: 5–7 days.

LiteForex analitics. GBP/USD: general analysis

Current trend

Since the beginning of the month, the pair trades within the sideways channel 1.3610–1.3458 (Murray [6/8]–[1/8], Н4).
UK employment statistic was mixed. The unemployment level stays record low –4.2%. Average Earning Including Bonus has grown by 2.9% during the last 2 months, which has exceeded the inflation growth of the period (2.7%). On the other hand, the growth rate of Average Earnings Excluding Bonus decreased from 2.8% to 2.6%.
British economy is slowing after significant growth, which the Deputy Governor of the BoE Ben Broadbent confirmed in his interview for Daily Telegraph and due to the unclear situation about Brexit. Until the Summer EU Summit, UK must publish its plan of the relations with EU development during the transitional period. However, the British governing parties are not able to agree. On Tuesday, the Scottish Parliament rejected London Brexit low, as it restricts the rights of local parliamentarians.

Support and resistance

The price is tending to the lower border of the channel, but the fall is possible after consolidation below the level of 1.3427 (Murray [–2/8]), and the “bearish” targets will be at 1.3310 (the lower border of Bollinger Bands) and 1.3200. After the breakout of 1.3550 (Murray [–1/8]) the correction to the level of 1.3671 (Murray [0/8], the middle line of Bollinger Bands) is possible. The indicators reflect the fall. Bollinger Bands and Stochastic are pointed downwards. MACD histogram is stable in the negative zone.
Resistance levels: 1.3550, 1.3671.
Support levels: 1.3427, 1.3310, 1.3200.

Trading tips

Short positions can be opened below the level of 1.3427 with the targets at 1.3310, 1.3200 and stop loss 1.3470.

LiteForex analitics. WTI Crude Oil: Murrey analysis

This week, the price of WTI Crude oil continued to grow and is now testing the 71.87 mark ([6/8]). Its breakout will give the prospect of further growth to the levels of 73.43 ([7/8]) and 75.00 ([8/8]). Technical indicators generally confirm the development of an uptrend: Bollinger Bands are directed upwards, and MACD histogram grows in the positive zone; Stochastic is directed downwards, but it makes a reversal attempt.
In the price fails to consolidate above 71.87, correction to the mid-range of Bollinger Bands (69.53) or to the mid-range of the Murray trade range (68.75 [4/8]) is possible. But so far this scenario seems less probable.
Support and resistance
Support levels: 70.31 ([5/8]), 69.53 ([1/8], H4), 68.75 ([4/8]).
Resistance levels: 71.87 ([6/8]), 73.43 ([7/8]), 75.00 ([8/8]).

Trading tips

Long positions may be opened above the 71.87 mark with targets at 73.43, 75.00 and the stop-loss at 71.20.
Short positions may be opened from the level of 71.00 with targets at 70.31, 69.53 and the stop-loss at 71.50.
Implementation time: 5-7 days.
