Current trend
The pair is in correction after a significant fall of the begging of the year.

A breakout of the level of 0.7070 (ЕМА200 on the hourly chart, ЕМА50 on the 4-hour chart) would send the pair towards 0.7100 (December lows), 0.7145 (ЕМА200, ЕМА144 on the 4-hour chart), 0.7200 (upper border of a descending channel on the 4-hour chart).

Current trend
The EUR/USD pair is trading below the key resistance level of 1.1000. The European currency remains under pressure from a range of fundamental factors.
France’s economy is facing difficulties and needs additional monetary support of about 2 billion euros, according to a preliminary estimate.

At the same time, the President stated the current situation will not affect tax rate and amount of social benefits.
Today, attention needs to be paid to Consumer Price Index data, released in Germany. If the indicator comes in below 0.3%, ECB might have to introduce additional stimulus measures that will add pressure on the European currency.

LiteForexNews started this thread USD/CAD: pair growth and oil prices fall

Current trend
The Bank of Canada holds its monetary policy meeting today. As BoC Governor Stephen Poloz has repeatedly stated, the Regulator aims at keeping loose monetary policy and considers a possibility of a rate cut to -0.5%.
The Canadian currency is declining against the US Dollar amid a sharp fall in oil prices. On Tuesday, the International Energy Agency reported oil supply might increase by 1.5 barrels per day in next six month. Moreover, oil prices are under pressure due to unfavorable conditions in global stock markets, China's stock market crash in particular.
In the given situation, the Bank of Canada might choose to wait on the sidelines and keep its interest rate on hold at 0.5% that, however, is unlikely to strengthen the national currency.

Support and resistance
Since the beginning of the year, USD/CAD pair has grown by more than 800 points.
OsMA and Stochastic on all timeframes, from 4-hour to monthly, recommend long positions. Any decline in the pair should be seen as a short-term correction.
Support levels: 1.4575, 1.4565, 1.4500, 1.4450, 1.4400.
Resistance levels: 1.4700.

Trading tips
Buy Stop orders can be placed at the level of 1.4710 with targets at 1.4800, 1.4900 and stop-loss at 1.4670.
Sell Stop orders can be placed at the level of 1.4550 with targets at 1.4450, 1.4400 and stop-loss at 1.4580.

LiteForexNews started this thread AUD/USD: growth might resume

Current trend
On Thursday, the AUD/USD pair tested the level of 0.6950, the 23.6% Fibonacci correction level. The Australian currency managed to strengthen when the US released not so favorable December’s data on inflation. Though Consumer Price Index came in at 0.7% in annual terms, it was 0.1% below the forecast. In monthly terms, the indicator was down to -0.1%. However, the pair is still under pressure from a gradual slowdown in China’s economy as the country is the largest trading partner of Australia.

Support and resistance
The pair is heading to 0.6895, the middle MA of Bollinger Bands. The breakdown of this level allows the pair to continue falling to 0.6835 and 0.6800. Alternatively, if the price turns up and overcomes the 23.6% Fibonacci level, it might grow further to 0.7020 and 0.7080.
Generally, according to technical indicators, the pair tends to grow. Bollinger Bands indicator is turning up. MACD histogram is in the negative zone, its volumes are falling. Only Stochastic lines have crossed each other and turned down, forming a sell signal.
Support levels: 0.6950, 0.7020, 0.7080.
Resistance levels: 0.6895, 0.6835, 0.6800.

Trading tips
Long positions are preferable and can be opened from the level of 0.6950 with targets at 0.7020, 0.7080. Moreover, Buy Limit orders can be placed at the level of 0.6895 with the target at 0.6950.
If the price consolidates below the level of 0.6895, short positions can be opened with targets at 0.6835 and 0.6800.

Japanese stock index NikkeiStockAverage also gained support when an aide to Japanese Prime Minister pointed out that further easing of monetary policy is necessary. Together with the index, the USD/JPY pair is growing as well. If the Bank of Japan introduces additional stimulus measures, the pair will manage to gain back its recent losses.

LiteForexNews started this thread USD/CAD: pair fell

Current trend
In the end of last week, the pair significantly fell amid substantial growth in oil prices.
In addition, the Canadian Dollar was supported by strong macroeconomic data from Canada. Retail Sales in November 2015 grew by 1.7% while economists predicted a 0.2% growth. At the same time, the Consumer Price Index in December grew by 1.6%, against a 1.4% growth in the previous month that was, however, slightly worse than forecasts. Similar index by the Bank of Canada in December fell by 0.4% that was also a little worse than expectations.

LiteForexNews started this thread USD/JPY: ahead of BoJ meeting
*
Current trend
On Friday, the Bank of Japan releases its decisions on interest rates and quantitative and qualitative monetary easing programme. Last week, BoJ Governor stated the Regulator will not hesitate to adjust policy as needed to achieve the inflation target of 2%.
Amid a slowdown in Japan’s economic growth and, therefore, different approaches to monetary policy in the US and Japan, the USD/JPY pair is likely to grow in the medium term.
*
Support and resistance
By the opening of the European session, the USD/JPY pair declined by almost 50 points, but then managed to gain back some of its losses, having found a support at 117.90 (EMA200, EMA144 on the hourly chart, EMA50 on the 4-hour chart).
OsMA and Stochastic on the monthly chart recommend short positions. The indicators on the daily chart are giving sell signals; on the weekly chart, they have started turning to long positions as well. However, according to the indicators on the 4-hour chart, the USD/JPY pair is likely to continue moving down in the short term.
After the breakdown of the support levels of 117.90 (EMA200, EMA144 on the hourly chart, EMA50 on the 4-hour chart) and 117.40, a decline will continue towards 116.00 (lower border of a descending channel on the daily chart).
As an alternative scenario, the price might overcome the resistance levels of 118.70 (EMA144), 119.20 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart) and continue growing towards 120.00 (EMA200 on the daily chart), 120.55 (61.8% Fibonacci and ЕМА144 on the daily chart).
Support levels: 117.90, 117.40, 117.00.
Resistance levels: 118.70, 119.20, 120.00, 120.55.

Trading tips
Long positions can be opened from the level of 118.40 with targets at 118.70, 119.20, 120.00, 120.50 and stop-loss at 117.80.
Short positions can be opened from the level of 117.30 with targets at 117.00, 116.50, 116.10 and stop-loss at 117.70.
