NZDUSD technical analysis

H4

On the four-hour chart of the asset, at the level of 0.6107, there is a formation of a Hammer candlestick pattern, which signals a possible change in the trend to an upward one, as well as a "bullish" Engulfing pattern at the level of 0.6174, which means a reversal of quotes at the bottom. In the current situation, the priority scenario is an increase from the level of 0.6246 to the zone of 0.6559−0.6869. An alternative scenario is possible if the buyers fail to hold the key support level of 0.6107, then the price may drop even lower to the range of 0.5929–0.5755.

On the daily chart, a Falling Wedge price pattern is observed, and at the moment, an upward exit from the "bearish" trend channel is being implemented. A positive signal for the asset is the appearance of a Hammer reversal pattern at the support level of 0.6107, which can act as a catalyst for the uptrend from the level of 0.6246 up to the level of 0.6869. If the price consolidates below the level of 0.6107, the trading instrument may show a decrease to the zone of 0.5929−0.5755.

USDCHF - lateral channel correction

The strengthening of the franc was supported by data on Imports volumes, which in June reflected an increase of 0.3% compared with the previous month, while the Producer Price Index reached 109.8 points, adding 6.9% compared to the same period a year earlier. The real estate market is mixed, with Civil Construction Spending up 0.1% year-over-year and Construction Overall Spending reduced by 0.4%, resulting in a 0.1% decrease in Total Investment in the sector.

On the global chart of the asset, the price is correcting within the side channel, preparing to continue the global growth. Technical indicators maintain a steady buy signal: the fast EMAs of the Alligator indicator are significantly above the signal line, and the histogram of the AO oscillator is held in the buy zone, forming local corrective bars.

GBPUSD - waiting for the UK inflation data

According to analysts' forecasts, the overall Unemployment Rate in the UK will remain at around 3.8%, while May Employment Change data for the previous three-month period may reflect an increase of 170 thousand jobs from 177.0 thousand a month earlier. Average Earnings Including Bonus is also likely to correct upwards by 6.9%, slightly above the 6.8% shown in April. However, the key day to determine the further dynamics of the British pound this week will be Wednesday, when the data on the Consumer Price Index is released. Market experts are sure that inflation in the United Kingdom will set a new record at around 9.2%, and some experts spoke in favor of a possible excess of the 9.5% threshold.

GBPUSD continues to trade within the global downward channel, approaching the support line. Technical indicators maintain a sell signal: the range of the Alligator indicator EMAs fluctuations is expanding in the direction of decline, and the histogram of the AO oscillator forms descending bars.

BTCUSD

The BTCUSD pair continues to trade within the framework of a long-term downtrend, however, in the last few weeks the decline has slowed down, and the price has formed a sideways range of 18750 - 22500, within which it remains at the present time. Now the quotes of "digital gold" are testing its upper limit, the breakout of which will allow us to continue moving to the levels of 25000 and 28125. The key for the "bears" is the mark of 18750, at the breakdown of which the downward dynamics will resume to the range of 15625, 12500 and 10000.

In general, the long-term downward trend is still maintained, but in order for it to continue, quotes need to break through the current side channel. Judging by the indicators illustrating the uncertainty of the market, a trend change is unlikely in the near future, and the price will continue to move sideways.

Resistance levels: 22500, 25000, 28125, 31250 | Support levels: 18750, 15625, 12500, 10000​

USDCHF - Technical analysis

H4

A Double Top price pattern is forming on the four-hour chart, and the USD/CHF quotes are currently near the Neck line, overcoming which will mean the continuation of the active phase of decline. The negative dynamics is intensified by the appearance at the resistance level of 0.9840 of the Shooting Star and Hanging Man figures following each other. In addition, the downward movement is due to the formation of the Three Black Crows trend continuation pattern in the range of 0.9840–0.9790. Currently, the asset has formed another Shooting Star candlestick analysis pattern at 0.9790, which signals growing "bearish" sentiment in the market. In the current situation, the scenario with a decrease in the trading instrument to the support level of 0.9697 seems more likely, overcoming which will allow quotes to fall to the area of 0.9548−0.9421. An alternative scenario is possible if the price consolidates above the resistance level of 0.9840 and then moves up to the level of 1.0117.

usdchf-1.png


D1
On the daily chart, at the level of 0.9840, there is the formation of a Hanging Man reversal pattern, which indicates that the quotes have consolidated the top and met with strong resistance. This was confirmed by the formation of a classic Shooting Star candlestick analysis pattern, which similarly illustrates the completion of a "bullish" trend. At the moment, probably, there is a formation of the Falling Three Methods figure, which is a signal for the continuation of the downtrend. If the sellers overcome the support level of 0.9697, one should expect further continuation of the negative dynamics in USDCHF currency pair to the area of 0.9548−0.9421.

Support levels: 0.9697, 0.9548, 0.9421 | Resistance levels: 0.984, 1.0033, 1.0117

USDJPY - the epidemiological situation in Japan is rapidly deteriorating

The trading instrument is under pressure from reports of a sharp deterioration in the epidemiological situation in Japan, as a number of prefectures recorded record levels of COVID-19 infection. The day before, the number of detected cases reached 110.670K, which is the absolute daily maximum since the beginning of the pandemic. The main focus of the spread continues to be Tokyo, where the statistics reflected 17.709K cases. As for the economic component, already on Thursday the Bank of Japan will publish its decision on the interest rate, and analysts suggest that the rate will be kept at a negative level of –0.10%, as the country's financial authorities prefer to fight the unprecedented inflation by buying assets, rather than tightening monetary conditions.

usdjpy.png


The trading instrument is in the global uptrend, dropping below the annual high of 139. Technical indicators maintain a steady buy signal: the range of EMA fluctuations on the Alligator indicator is still wide, and the histogram of the AO oscillator is forming new multi-directional bars, being high in the purchase area.

NZDUSD - New Zealand inflation hits 32-year high

The New Zealand authorities announced the extension of the preferential excise tax on motor fuel due to a decrease in the cost of living of citizens due to record inflation, which reached an annualized rate of 7.3%, the highest value in 32 years. According to the Stats NZ data, published the day before, cost of construction materials increased the most in June, adding 18%, utilities added 7.3% and food products gained 6.5%, while the cost of gasoline increased by 32% in annual terms, and diesel fuel added 74%. Experts believe that against the backdrop of continuing negative dynamics, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand will tighten its monetary policy, raising the interest rate by 0.75 percentage points already at the August meeting. Last week, the regulator already adjusted the figure to 2.50% and announced plans to bring the value to 4.0% by the middle of next year.

Quotes of the trading instrument are within the global downtrend, having retreated from the annual low of 0.6096. Technical indicators hold a stable sell signal, but do not exclude local correction: fast EMAs on the Alligator indicator slowly narrow down the range of fluctuations, and the AO oscillator histogram is forming local upward bars.

Quotes of XAUUSD are correcting in a downtrend, being in the area of 1710.

While most experts expect the US Federal Reserve to increase interest rates, some analysts have begun to openly speak out in favor of the fact that the regulator will not be able to stick to the current "hawkish" course for a long time. The fact is that such a rapid tightening of monetary conditions increases the risks of a recession, which could have a more devastating effect on the economy than the current record inflation. US officials will either raise the rate to the required 4.75%–5%, or refuse such steps altogether, which will lead to an increase in the Consumer Price Index above 10.0%. Whatever scenario the US regulator chooses, this will have a positive effect on the precious metals market, as investors will urgently start looking for a "safe haven" transferring their capital into gold.

Despite the positive fundamental background, the technical picture on the price chart does not yet give buying signals: the fast EMAs of the Alligator indicator are below the signal line, and the histogram of the AO oscillator is trading in the sell zone, forming descending bars.

Silver - H4

On the four-hour chart of the asset at the level of 18.22, there is a formation of a Long-Legged Doji candlestick analysis pattern, signaling uncertainty in the market or a possible reversal, which is also confirmed by the formation of the Morning Star pattern, after which the trading instrument showed a price recovery to the level of 19.07. At the moment, the quotes are moving in the sideways range of 18.62–19.07, where the Hammer and Bullish Belt Hold patterns have already appeared. Their combination signals that the asset has probably reached a low and is reversing. At the moment, the uptrend to the resistance level of 19.50 is seen as a priority, consolidation above which will allow the "bulls" to head to the zone of 20.95–24.19. An alternative scenario may be realized if the price breaks the key support level at 18.22, then the decline may intensify up to the level of 14.77.

On the daily chart, there is the formation of a Falling Wedge price pattern, which may end at the support level of 18.22, and a Hammer, the appearance of which indicates that the price has reached the bottom. In the current situation, the scenario with an upward movement from the level of 18.22 is seen as a priority. Overcoming the upper border of the Falling Wedge and consolidation of the quotes above 19.50 will mean a final upward reversal and will allow the "bulls" to restore their positions in the range of 20.95–24.19.

The European currency received a positive impetus

The euro continues to strengthen locally in tandem with the US dollar after the publication of a positive report on the dynamics of consumer prices. According to statistics, in June the indicator added 0.8% and the annual value reached 8.6%, which is fully consistent with the preliminary estimates of the market and representatives of the European Central Bank (ECB). These macroeconomic data will influence the decision of the members of the regulator during tomorrow's meeting on monetary policy, and the fact that inflation in the eurozone remains in line with expectations may signal an increase in interest rates in a standard 25 basis point increment, which will be enough to contain price increases. In this case, euro quotes will receive short-term support.

Despite the quite expected achievement of the absolute low of the year, EURUSD remained within the global downward channel and is now forming another wave of growth. Technical indicators hurried to give a signal for the beginning of the correction: fast EMAs on the Alligator indicator are actively approaching the signal line, and the AO oscillator histogram is forming upward bars.

XRPUSD -Technical analysis

Currently, the price is testing its upper limit, consolidation above which will allow the cryptocurrency to continue moving to the area of 0.4150 (Fibo retracement 23.6%). Otherwise, the price will remain within the sideways range and resume its decline to the levels of 0.2930 and 0.2441.

xrp.png


Technical indicators confirm the high probability of the development of downward dynamics: the Bollinger Bands are horizontal, the MACD histogram is at the zero line, its volumes are insignificant, and the Stochastic has reached the oversold zone and is trying to reverse downwards. In general, further movement within the established lateral range is seen as the most priority scenario at the moment.

USDCAD - Technical analysis

H4

On the four-hour chart of the asset, at the level of 1.2971, there is a formation of the Three Black Crows candlestick analysis pattern, which signals the continuation of the negative dynamics of the quotations of the trading instrument, and at the level of 1.2921, the Tweezer Top pattern has been fixed, indicating another local resistance for buyers. In the current situation, a scenario with a downward movement to the support level of 1.2814 is more likely, overcoming which will allow the "bears" to continue the decline to the area of 1.2626−1.2458. An alternative scenario is possible if buyers manage to hold positions at 1.2814 and reverse the situation in their favor, and then the asset will be able to recover in the range of 1.2971–1.3243.

USDJPY - the Bank of Japan announced the continuation of the redemption of bonds

The changes will not affect the interest rate, which is expected to be kept at a negative level of –0.10%, but, according to the decision of the officials, the rules for the redemption of government bonds will be adjusted. Purchases of securities will continue with no volume cap, and transactions in bonds with a fixed rate of 0.25% will now take place every business day. The bank also intends to acquire shares of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and real estate trusts worth about 12 trillion yen and 180 billion yen, respectively. In addition, corporate bond buybacks worth up to 3 trillion yen will continue. Thus, one can say with confidence that the high volatility in USD/JPY will increase, and against the backdrop of a declining US dollar, the yen has high chances for a correction.

Crude Oil - lower demand for gasoline in the USA puts pressure on quotes

Earlier, data from the Energy Information Administration of the US Department of Energy (EIA) were published, which put pressure on the positions of the trading instrument. In particular, oil reserves decreased by 0.446M barrels, and distillates — by 1.296M barrels, while gasoline reserves in the USA immediately increased by 3.498M barrels, which worries investors, since such a rapid drop in gasoline demand during the summer car season can mean serious problems in the national economy. Probably, the population cannot pay for fuel at the new high tariffs, which threatens to further reduce its sales. An additional factor of pressure on prices is the resumption of production at a number of fields in Libya, where a regime of force majeure was previously announced.

Now the trading instrument is testing the mark of 103.12 (Murray [1/8]), consolidation below which will allow the quotes to continue moving to the area of 100 (Murray [0/8], Fibo retracement 50.0%) and 96.88 (Murray [-1/8]). The key for the "bulls" is still the level of 108, the breakout of which will be a catalyst for growth to the levels of 112.5 (Murray [4/8]), 115.62 (Murray [5/8]).

Technical indicators signal the continuation of the decline: the Bollinger Bands are directed downwards, the Stochastic is reversing downwards in the overbought zone, and the MACD histogram is stable in the negative zone.

FTSE 100 - markets awaiting ECB interest rate decision

The focus of investors remains on today's meeting of the European Central Bank (ECB), which is likely to make a decision on the first interest rate increase since 2011. According to analysts' forecasts, the indicator will be corrected by 0.25%, and given that inflation in the eurozone remained at 8.6% in May, this is the most logical decision. The opposite situation is observed in the UK, where macroeconomic data, presented the day before, recorded an acceleration of inflation to 9.4%, reflecting the most rapid pace in the last 40 years. The negative dynamics of indicators will push the officials of the Bank of England to accelerate the pace of tightening monetary parameters, which, in turn, will increase the cost of borrowing for businesses.

Quotes of the trading instrument are traded within the global side channel, being in the middle of the range.

Silver - demand for silver is actively declining​

To assess the current trends in the market, it is enough to refer to the statistics on the demand for the assets of the metal group on the commodity exchange. According to the latest report from the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), investor interest in silver contracts is so low that it could fall into negative area for the first time in three years by the end of this month. The last time such a strong negative trend was observed in the early summer of 2019, when metal quotes were around 15 dollars per ounce. It follows from the statistics that last week the number of net speculative positions on the asset was fixed at around 3.2K.

USDCHF - trading instrument is preparing to continue to decline​

However, there are no prerequisites for the strengthening of the franc at the moment either. Instead, the economic situation in Switzerland is rapidly deteriorating, and in the near future the country may face an acute energy crisis. At least, this is what Michael Frank, director of the VSE association of Swiss electricity companies, said. According to him, power outages were caused by a reduction in gas supplies from Russia and the shutdown of nuclear power plants in France for maintenance. The only way to stabilize the situation, Frank sees a phased reduction in resource consumption, which, in particular, includes limiting the illuminating of shop windows and streets, and if this is not enough, then turning off individual regions for four hours in turn. The Swiss authorities predict an increase in the negative dynamics of electricity prices. According to the head of the government’s advisory commission for electricity, Elcom, Urs Meister, ordinary citizens' electricity bills could grow by an average of 20% next year. This conclusion comes from a survey of suppliers who intend to raise prices by 47% amid rising coal prices, likely problems with exports from neighboring countries and global supply uncertainty.

EURUSD - the ECB raised its base rate for the first time since 2011

Euro quotes reacted ambiguously to the decision of the European Central Bank (ECB) to tighten monetary policy at a more aggressive pace. The result of the meeting of the regulator, which took place the day before, was an increase in all three key indicators by 50 basis points at once for the first time after an 11-year break. Accordingly, the interest rate on the main refinancing operations and the interest rates on the marginal lending facility and the deposit facility will be increased to 0.50%, 0.75% and 0.00% respectively, with effect from 27 July 2022. In addition, the ECB noted the expediency of continuing the "hawkish" course. In particular, the Asset Purchase Programme (APP) and the Pandemic Emergency Purchase Programme (PEPP) will continue, and the launch of Transmission Protection Instrument (TPI) will be announced, which will minimize discrepancies in borrowing costs for euro area countries. As a result, it is obvious that the ECB considers the current time to be suitable for a more serious increase in rates and hopes in this way to significantly reduce the rapid inflation by autumn, bringing it to the target of 2.0% in 2023.

Despite the external pressure, EUR/USD is holding within the global downward channel and is now forming another wave of corrective growth. Technical indicators gave a signal for the beginning of the correction: fast EMAs on the Alligator indicator are actively approaching the signal line, and the AO oscillator histogram is forming upward bars.
