NZDUSD Poised For More Gains

Key Highlights
• New Zealand Dollar enjoyed a decent rally against the US Dollar, and currently challenging the 0.6710-40 resistance area.
• There is a support trend line formed on the 4-hours chart, which may play a major role for buyers and sellers in the short term.
• Today, the US Initial Jobless Claims will be released by the US Department of Labor, which is forecasted to decrease from 285K to 281K.
• Earlier today, the New Zealand Business NZ PMI released by the Business NZ came in at 57.9 in January 2016, up from the last reading of 56.7.

NZDUSD Technical Analysis
The NZDUSD pair showed a lot of positive signs this week, as it climbed higher and formed a bullish pattern. There is a support trend line formed on the 4-hours chart of the NZDUSD pair, which is acting as a barrier for sellers and buy zone for buyers.



The NZDUSD pair is also comfortably above the 100 and 200 simple moving averages on the 4-hours chart, which is a sign that buyers are here to stay.

On the upside, buyers need to watch for the 0.7700-50 area, as it acted as a resistance many times, and only a daily close above it could take the pair higher in the near term. On the downside, the 0.6620-00 can be seen as a crucial support area, followed by 200 SMA (H4).

EURJPY: Tough For Euro Buyers To Take It Higher?

Key Highlights
• Euro had a bad week so far against the Japanese yen, as mostly it weakened and failed to gain.
• There is a contracting triangle structure forming on the 4-hours chart, which may be broken to pave the way for a downside move.
• Japanese Merchandise Trade Balance Total released by the Ministry of Finance posted a trade deficit of ¥-645.9B in Jan 2016, compared with the forecast of ¥-680.2B.
• Japanese imports and exports came in at -18% and -12.9% respectively in Jan 2016.

EURJPY Technical Analysis
The Euro moved down against the Japanese Yen, and traded towards the 125.70-80 support area where it found buyers. The EURJPY pair is currently correcting higher, and forming a contracting triangle structure forming on the 4-hours chart.



The pair is struggling to hold the triangle support area, which means there is a high probability of the Euro sellers breaking it and taking the pair down in the short term.

On the downside, we need to keep an eye on the 125.70-80 support area, as a break below it could take the pair towards the 125.00 levels.

GBPUSD Down and Out; Hits 7-year Low

Key Highlights
• British Pound continued to trade down, and created a new 7-year low against the US dollar.
• GBPUSD broke the 1.40 level and it looks like set for more losses in the near term.
• All the tension and drama in the UK and the Euro Zone regarding the Brexit ignited a solid downside reaction in the British Pound.
• In the UK, the Gross Domestic Product report will be released by the National Statistics, which is forecasted to post an increase of 0.5% in Q4 2015.

GBPUSD Technical Analysis
The British Pound continued to suffer heavy losses against most major currencies, and it looks like it may continue its slide against the US Dollar. The GBPUSD pair is already down and out, plus trading below the 1.4000 levels.



The GBPUSD created a new 7-year low and still it looks like the bears are not done yet. There is a lot of pressure on the British Pound bulls, and that is the reason why the GBPUSD might even break the 1.3900 level.

Any minor correction from the current levels may be considered as a sell opportunity in the near term.

The GBPUSD pair is also testing the 100 hourly simple moving average that may act as a pivot in the short term.
