USDCHF - Technical analysis

H4

On the four-hour chart, there is the formation of a Three Black Crows candlestick analysis pattern, which means a continuation of the downtrend and emphasizes the unstable position of the "bulls". At the moment, above the support level of 0.9396, a Bearish Engulfing Pattern has formed, which signals about increasing sales volumes. If the "bulls" fail to hold it, one should expect an increased downtrend up to the level of 0.9227. An alternative scenario is possible if buyers overcome the resistance level of 0.9496 with further recovery of positions in the zone of 0.9619–0.9728.

D1
The daily chart shows the formation of a Bear Flag price pattern, from which the price broke down. In addition, the negative trend is accompanied by the formation of a long red candle, the "bearish" Marubozu, which emphasizes the strength of sellers. In the current situation, the "bearish" trend is expected to continue and the price pattern to end at the level of 0.9227. The turning point for the "bulls" may be an impulse breakdown of the level of 0.9496.

Support levels: 0.9396, 0.9307, 0.9227 | Resistance levels: 0.9496, 0.9619, 0.9728

The shares of Apple, an American technology company, are in a corrective trend at around 172.

On the daily chart, the price is within the global Expanding formation pattern, completing another up wave and approaching the resistance line at 174. On the four-hour chart, it is seen that the current wave is the fifth one and, therefore, the last of the obligatory ones, and within its framework, the upper border of the pattern may be broken, and the year’s high of 183 will be the local target for the upward movement.

EURJPY Technical Analysis

Despite the EURJPY pair’s trading within the bullish channel, the contradiction between the major indicators and the attempt to fluctuate below 136.60 level will postpone the bullish attack for now, to start suggesting the correctional negative trades that might target 135.50 and 134.40 levels. On the other hand, renewing the bullish attempts requires forming new bullish rally to manage to hold above 137.55 and open the way to target the positive stations near 138.60 and 139.70 levels.

The expected trading range for today is between 136.80 and 135.50​

BTC USD - short-term price correction possible

The main driver of positive dynamics was the July data on US inflation: a slowdown in its growth to 8.5% made many investors hope that the peak of consumer price growth in the country has passed, and the indicator will now begin to move towards the target level of 2.0%, which may force the US Federal Reserve to abandon a sharp rate hike of 75 or 100 percentage points at the next meetings. It, in turn, became a catalyst for the active decline of the dollar against its main competitors. Also, the transition of the Ethereum network to the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) proof algorithm, scheduled for mid-September, arouses the interest of traders in the entire cryptocurrency market and “digital gold” in particular.

The price has rolled back down and not consolidated above 25000. Judging by the reversal of Stochastic near the overbought zone, the decline may continue to the middle line of Bollinger bands around 23650, and in case the quotes consolidate below it and 23437.5, return to 21875. Otherwise, growth will resume towards 25000, 26562.5, and 28125.

NZDUSD - Inflation in New Zealand remains high

On Friday, Stats NZ published a report on food prices, which rose by 7.4% in July in annual terms. Among the key categories of price increases are: basic food products (+7.5%), restaurant meals (+6.6%), fruits and vegetables (+10.0%), meat and fish (+7.7%) and non-alcoholic drinks (+4.6%). On a monthly basis, the growth in food inflation amounted to 2.1%, and the fact that the negative dynamics is recorded taking into account lower energy prices indicates that the measures taken by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) are not enough yet.

NZDUSD - Technical analysis

On the four-hour chart, at the resistance level of 0.6453, there is the formation of an Evening Doji Star reversal candlestick pattern, as well as a Three Black Crows pattern, which included a Bear Marubozu candlestick. The combination of these figures indicates pressure on the price from sellers and indicates a continuation of the downtrend with the target of 0.6279, overcoming which will allow the "bears" to continue moving to the area of 0.6107–0.5944. An alternative scenario can be realized if the quotes consolidate above 0.6453; then the asset will be able to restore its positions in the range of 0.6598–0.6748.

nzdusd-1.png

After the uptrend on the daily chart at the level of 0.6453, a Bearish Harami candlestick pattern appeared, which signals an imminent price reversal, and there is also a red long Engulfing reversal candle, warning the "bulls" of the upcoming trend change. In this situation, it is more likely that the quotes will fall to the support level of 0.6279, consolidation below which will allow the "bears" to head to the area of 0.5944.

Support levels: 0.6279, 0.6107, 0.5944 | Resistance levels: 0.6453, 0.6598, 0.6748

Shares of Starbucks, one of the largest companies in the world that owns the coffee chain of the same name, are trading around 89.

On the daily chart, the price has left the global downwards channel, having consolidated above the initial Fibonacci 23.6% correction at 82.5, and is currently correcting upwards. On the four-hour timeframe, the quotes of the trading instrument have almost reached another correctional level — the basic Fibonacci correction of 38.2% around 90.80, consolidation above which will be the main signal to continue the confident upward dynamics and reach the full correction level of 61.8% Fibonacci at 104.40, coinciding with the resistance line of the global downtrend.

USDJPY - Japan's economy grew in the second quarter

The yen continues to resist the recovery of the dollar, but at yesterday's trading retreated somewhat from its local highs after the publication of macroeconomic statistics. Japan's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) added 0.5% in the second quarter, compared to a 0.6% growth forecast, and grew 2.2% year-on-year, also slower than the 2.5% expected by analysts. Nevertheless, experts assessed the released data positively, as the Japanese economy became one of the few that showed positive dynamics in the second quarter of 2022. The outlook for the future, however, is negative due to the new coronavirus outbreak and higher commodity prices. In addition to GDP, Consumer Spending also rose, adding 1.1% in the second quarter after rising 0.1% in the previous period. The main positive moment of the report was the data on the volume of Industrial Production, which grew by 9.2% in July, despite the fact that analysts expected a reduction of 7.5%.

USDJPY is trading within the global uptrend, being at the support line. Technical indicators keep a stable sell signal, which has recently intensified: the range of EMA fluctuations on the Alligator indicator is still wide and the histogram of the AO oscillator is forming new descending bars, being in the sales area.

Crude Oil - Reports of a reduction in oil exports from the Russian Federation lead to lower prices

According to Bloomberg, in general, the volume of "black gold" transported by sea from Russia decreased to 3.24 million barrels per day from 3.32 million barrels per day, and exports to Asian countries decreased to 1.75 million barrels per day from 2.1 million barrels per day earlier. First of all, experts attribute the decline in imports to Asian countries' purchases of about 16.0 million barrels of cheaper American oil, which turned out to be much more profitable for them than the new proposal from Saudi Arabia, which significantly increased selling prices at the beginning of the month, adding a premium of 10.8 dollars per barrel.

On the weekly chart of the asset, the price remains within the local descending channel, declining towards the support line.

Nasdaq 100 - the US stock market recovers

Yesterday, the chief executive officer of investment fund Third Point LLC announced the buyout of a substantial stake in entertainment company The Walt Disney Co. and plans to discuss strategic changes with its management, as a result of which the papers of the corporation began to grow actively. Another leader in the information background is the manufacturer of electric vehicles Tesla Inc., whose head Elon Musk is preparing to appear in court and argue his refusal to purchase the social network Twitter Inc. Already, the businessman is trying to form a positive fundamental background around his company so that if a decision is made in favor of the plaintiff, he will be able to pay penalties. In particular, he said that Tesla Inc. has already produced more than 1.0M vehicles at the new plant in Shanghai, which was the reason for the growth of its stock quotations by more than 3.0%.

USDJPY - Technical analysis

H4

On the four-hour chart, the quotes of USDJPY are moving in an uptrend channel. After a false breakout of its lower border at the level of 132.54, a Hammer reversal pattern is formed. Next, a Three Advancing White Soldiers pattern was formed, signaling the continuation of the uptrend; however, the emerging Long-Legged Doji pattern warns market participants about the existing uncertainty and signals a possible downward reversal. In this situation, a likely scenario may be a decrease in the quotes of the trading instrument to the support level of 132.54, consolidation of the price below which will allow the "bears" to go lower, to the area of 130.45–126.78. An alternative scenario can be realized if the price consolidates above the resistance level of 135.39. Then the quotes may recover to the range of 136.85 – 139.46.

On the daily chart, at the resistance level of 135.39, there is the formation of a Tower Top candlestick analysis pattern, which is formed in the area of high prices and is a downward reversal pattern. At the moment, the price is moving in an uptrend; however, a possible scenario could be that it overcomes the lower border of the trend channel and consolidates below the level of 132.54, which will strengthen the downtrend to the area of 130.45 – 126.78.

EURUSD - Rising gas prices put pressure on the euro

Since the beginning of the week, the European currency continues its downtrend, under pressure from rising natural gas prices and weak macroeconomic statistics. Now the quotes of the EURUSD pair are in a corrective trend, trading around 1.0182.

Earlier, the governments of the eurozone countries adopted a resolution under which they will voluntarily reduce gas consumption by 15% until the end of March next year in order to reduce fuel shortages due to supply restrictions from Russia. Against the background of this decision, the prices for "blue fuel" are showing a sharp increase, at the moment reaching record March levels in the region of 2.6 thousand euros per 1.0 thousand cubic meters. In turn, macroeconomic statistics turned out to be quite weak: the August ZEW Survey on Current Situation in Germany fell to –47.6 points, and ZEW Economic Sentiment was –55.3 points, while the same indicator in the eurozone adjusted to –54.9 points from –51.1 points a month earlier.

The EURUSD pair is holding within the global downward channel, reversing to the downside again. Technical indicators, having reversed in the direction of growth, once again gave a signal to sell. The fast Alligator indicator EMAs crossed the signal line from above, and the histogram of the AO oscillator is forming descending bars approaching the transition level.

XAGUSD - Global demand for silver is under threat again

The key negative factor that influenced the dynamics of the asset was the statistical data from China, as the price of the precious metal correlates with demand from the industry. Thus, according to the July statistics, the indicator fell to 3.8% instead of 4.6% expected by analysts, which led to a decrease in annual growth rates to 3.5%, while retail sales adjusted to 2.7% from 3.1 % a month earlier. Thus, the consequences of the recent coronavirus outbreak in China are still reflected in the dynamics, which is a negative signal for silver.

Investor demand for the metal increased over the past week: according to the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), net speculative positions increased to 2.9K contracts from 1.0K contracts a week earlier. It should be noted that this indicator reflects only the total demand for aggregate positions, but if you pay attention to the balance of short and long deals, last week was left for sellers, who increased the number of contracts by 2,472K, while buyers showed a decrease by 160 contracts. Globally, the "bearish" position also prevails and amounts to 30.211K against 7.398K for the "bulls."

The trading instrument continues its upward correction and is approaching the resistance line of the global downward channel.

USDCAD - Technical analysis

H4

On the four-hour chart, a Bullish Flag price pattern is forming, the completion of which is expected above the resistance level of 1.2960, since the breakout of its upper border was carried out by impulsive green candles in the form of a Three Advancing White Soldiers pattern. However, the movement slowed down with the appearance of a Hanging Man reversal candlestick pattern below the level of 1.2960, which is observed in the area of prevailing "bullish" activity. Therefore, to confirm a reversal at the local top, the formation of other "bearish" signals is required. Since the asset continued to grow after the formation of this pattern, one can assume that the quotes will continue their uptrend or consolidation in a narrow range of 1.2900–1.2960. If the "bulls" manage to successfully overcome the level of 1.2960 and consolidate above it, one should expect the quotes to continue moving towards the area of 1.3228–1.3630. An alternative scenario is possible in case of overcoming the support level of 1.2762 by the "bears". Then the negative dynamics may intensify up to the level of 1.2295.

On the daily chart, there is a Falling Wedge price pattern. At the moment, it is clear that the price has broken through its upper limit, but confirmation of this has not yet been received. In addition, at the support level of 1.2762, one of the varieties of the Morning Star candlestick pattern has formed, which indicates the prevailing "bullish" sentiment. In case of successful testing of the broken level and fixing the price above 1.2960, the quotes will most likely go higher, to the area of 1.3228–1.3630.

XAUUSD - Investor demand for gold is actively increasing

The XAUUSD pair is correcting in a downtrend at 1764 amid strengthening US dollar positions: the quotes rose from 105.3 to 106.6 in the USD Index due to several factors, including confirmation of the US Federal Reserve's plans to tighten monetary policy. Thus, the minutes of the meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), published yesterday, outlined the department's plans for September, which include raising interest rates by at least 50 basis points to combat record inflation.

Another factor in the local downward dynamics of gold was data on industrial production in China: the figure was 3.8%, which is lower than 3.9% a month earlier and significantly lower than 4.6% expected by analysts, which confirmed investors' fears about the stability of the economy of one of the largest importers and producers of precious metals.

On the weekly chart of the asset, the price is above the resistance line of the global downward channel with dynamic boundaries 1780 – 1650.

GBPUSD - UK inflation tops 10%

The pound continues to lose positions against the backdrop of weak macroeconomic data and at the moment GBPUSD is correcting around 1.2039. Consumer inflation in the UK, the first among developed countries, exceeded the 10% threshold and amounted to 10.1%, rising from 9.4% a month earlier, with a monthly increase of only 0.6%. Even more worrisome is the Core CPI excluding Food and Energy, climbing to 6.2% from 5.8%, catalysing the Bank of England to be more "hawkish" in terms of monetary tightening.

In turn, the US dollar is holding above 106 in the USD Index, sagging slightly after yesterday's US Retail Sales data. The index in July fell to 0.0% from 0.8% in the previous month, which disappointed analysts who had expected a rise of 1.0%. Obviously, the continuing decline in Retail Sales is a direct consequence of rising prices, which the US Federal Reserve is unable to seriously influence. The Core Retail Sales Index, in turn, also slowed to 0.4% from 0.9% a month earlier.

GBPUSD continues to trade within the global downward channel, retreating somewhat from the resistance line. Technical indicators are ready to reverse and give a signal for the start of sales: 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.

S&P 500 - Strong corporate reporting supports the index

The leading US economy index S&P 500 is correcting upwards at around 4261. The US stock market continues to correct, and its dynamics depends on both corporate reporting and the news background, which was supported by yesterday's report by the US Federal Reserve. The authorities of the regulator noted that the tightening of monetary policy will continue, and designated the level of "sufficiency" at which the interest rate will be held for some time; however, the department stressed that this level has not yet been reached.

The day before, Walmart Inc., the largest US retail chain, published its financial report, reflecting the growth in earnings per share to 1.77 dollars from 1.30 dollars a quarter earlier. The company's revenue increased to 152.86 billion dollars from 141.57 billion dollars in the previous quarter. In addition, Home Depot Inc. released its financial results, with revenue up to 43.79 billion dollars from 38.91 billion dollars in the previous quarter, and earnings per share of a record 5.05 dollars, up from 4.09 dollars in the first quarter.

ADAUSD - Technical analysis

The ADAUSD pair is moving within a long-term downtrend, but since the middle of last month, it has attempted to grow, forming a short-term upward channel. Currently, under the influence of the delay in the activation of the Vasil update and the publication of the latest minutes of the US Federal Reserve, which confirmed the regulator's determination to continue raising interest rates, the price has dropped to 0.5280 (the middle line of Bollinger bands, the lower limit of the ascending channel). Consolidation below this level will give the prospect of quotes returning to 0.4882 (Murrey [4/8], bottom line of Bollinger bands) and 0.4638 (Murrey [3/8]). The key "bullish" level is 0.5615 (Murrey [7/8]), which has been repeatedly tested this week, and consolidation above which will allow the trading instrument to rise to 0.5859 (Murrey [8/8]), 0.6103 (Murrey [+1 /eight]).

cardano.png


Technical indicators do not give a single signal: Bollinger bands are directed upwards, the MACD histogram is increasing in the positive zone, and Stochastic is directed downwards. The level of 0.5280 is quite strong, so the return of the price to the upward movement within the short-term upward channel seems to be a more likely scenario.

Resistance levels: 0.5615, 0.5859, 0.6103 | Support levels: 0.5280, 0.4882, 0.4638​

AUDUSD - Technical analysis

On the four-hour chart, under the resistance level of 0.7030, a Three Black Crows candlestick analysis pattern was formed, after which the trading instrument showed a decrease to the area of 0.6912. In addition, the Bear Marubozu pattern was included in this model, emphasizing the predominance of sellers. Currently, quotes have formed a Hanging Man figure, which in this situation may mean a continuation of the downtrend. A likely scenario is a decline to the support level of 0.6862, overcoming which will allow the "bears" to go lower, to the levels of 0.6680, 0.6420. An alternative scenario can be realized if the "bulls" hold their positions and the quotes recover to the resistance level: a breakout of the key level of 0.7030 will open the way for buyers to the range of 0.7184–0.7400.

A more likely scenario at the moment is a downtrend towards the key support level of 0.6862. A breakdown of this level will mean the final weakening of the "bulls", which will strengthen the downtrend of the instrument to the zone of 0.6680–0.6420.

USDCAD - Canada loses revenue due to lower export fuel prices​

The Canadian currency lost its leading position against the US dollar amid a decline in revenues received by the country from energy exports. According to Statistics Canada, the Commodity Price Index lost 7.4% in July. Similar dynamics led to inflation adjusting to 7.6% from 8.1%, but food prices, which are the second key component of the indicator, continued to rise, adding 0.9% in July. This movement is clearly seen in the calculation of Core CPI, excluding Food and Energy prices: the figure corrected to 6.6% from 6.5% a month earlier, and is now the main problem for the Bank of Canada.

In turn, the US dollar continues to grow, the day before exceeding 107 in the USD Index. The main reason for the positive dynamics was the report on Initial Jobless Claims, which for the first time in a long time showed a decrease in the number of applications to 250 thousand after 252 thousand recorded a week earlier, while analysts expected an increase in the number of applications to 265 thousand.

On the weekly chart of the asset, the price is trading within a wide ascending channel with dynamic boundaries of 1.2600–1.3200, rising again towards the resistance line. The EMA fluctuation range on the Alligator indicator signals a possible growth, and the AO oscillator histogram forms new rising bars, being in the sell zone.
