Today’s Currency Movers

EURUSD, Daily

EURUSD, Since the recent advance through the upper daily chart channel line was penetrated, and the fact that price remains within a 12 month decline, a further corrective bounce for medium term traders towards the 1.1220’s should not be ruled out. We will likely witness a potential breakdown back towards the 1.0870’s, ahead of my longer term price projection near the 1.0750’s. Swing traders with a short term view may look for price to return towards the 1.0970’s before flipping to the long side for a retest of the 1.1120’s.

The EUR has been trading off of the back of positive data this week, as German business and consumer confidence data came in firmer than expected; earlier today the German July Gfk held unchanged from June at 10.1. The consensus had been for a slight dip, to 10.0. High employment and expectations for higher pay underpinned the report. The EURUSD price advanced from Monday’s solid German Ifo results may consolidate ahead of today’s U.S. FOMC Statement.

Traders are waiting on the FOMC in the U.S., which concludes its two-day meeting today. No surprises are likely, and while the overall tone is expected to be more upbeat than the previous FOMC in June, the Fed is not likely to commit to a September rate lift-off. This is due to key data releases, concerns about China’s financial markets and Greece, and given recent oil price declines.

Today’s Currency Movers

EURUSD, Daily

EURUSD price, after breaking out of the six week downward sloping price channel, looks set to continue to bounce off of May’s low at 1.0820. Price action during Monday’s trading sessions was supported by the German Ifo report; the market viewed the results as strong enough to allow the pair to confirm a new short term resistance level at 1.1129. Technically, I now seek a return move towards the previous day’s low near the 1.0970’s, before we see a retest of the 1.1120’s.

The euro outperformed as more Grexit risk premium was unwound. Further, the July German Ifo survey beat expectations and boosted EUR longs. Market participants, as it seems, are adjusting expectations on the performance of the Chinese economy as the Chinese stock market closed down 8.5% on Monday. It is yet to remain seen, if the Chinese slowdown is a domestic issue or if it will spread into the global economy.

The dollar shrugged off the better durables report, which was beefed up by Boeing orders. The U.S. Dallas Fed’s manufacturing index improved to -4.6 in July versus -7.0 in June. It’s been in negative territory for 7 straight months given the region’s exposure to the oil recession.

• USD CB Consumer Confidence: The July consumer confidence is out later today and should reveal a decline to 100.0 (median 100.0) from 101.4 in June. This would come along side a decline in Michigan Sentiment to 93.3 in the first July release from 96.1 in June. The IBD/TIPP poll for the month managed to hold steady at 48.1 for a second month.

Today’s Currency Movers

EURUSD, Daily

EURUSD price, at the time of writing, price has penetrated the higher channel line within the above daily chart to clear the higher end of the 1.1080’s resistance levels. When a market has a breakout, we look for it to make an initial move beyond nearby support and resistance. Those traders that have been following my daily analysis of the EURUSD, would not be surprised by the recent surge in price, as I have been writing about the possibility of the pair printing out a new lower top below the 1.1220’s within the above chart downward price channel. I now remain on the watch for a breach above the 1.1210’s – 1.1220’s area for clues of a daily chart trend reversal, otherwise I would expect for price to halt its three month corrective bounce and resume its move lower towards a retest of the 1.0870’s with the possibility of reaching my 1.0750’s target area.

The EUR received a boost in early European market trading as the German July Ifo Business Climate unexpectedly bounced back with the overall reading rising to 108.0 from 107.5 in the previous month. The expectations reading rose for the first time since March and it seems the Greek bailout deal has boosted future optimism. The retail trade index meanwhile fell back slightly, as did the construction index. All in all, a positive number, which together with the effective stabilization in German ZEW and PMI readings confirms that the German economy remains on track.

Traders should expect further EURUSD price action later today as the U.S. June Durable Goods Orders are due. June durable goods orders are expected to grow by 2.0%., Shipments and Inventories are expected to remain unchanged.

The three months moving average, the ECB’s preferred target, moved up to 5.1%, clearly above the reference value of 4.5%, although with the ECB focused on loan growth and headline inflation, M3 data has effectively been degraded in its importance for monetary policy decision.

• U.S. Core Durable Goods Orders: Forecast risk: upward, as there was an increase in Boeing orders in June. Market risk: downward, as weaker data could impact rate hike timelines.

S&P 500 TRADING NEAR LEVELS THAT SHOULD ATTRACT BUYERS

S&P 500 Trading Near Levels That Should Attract Buyers

S&P 500, Weekly

At the time of writing Asian shares are on decline with Nikkei down by 1.2%, Nifty 0.97% and Hang Seng Composite down by over 3% and according to Bloomberg Shanghai Composite is down by 8% even in the government managed market. The US stock market finished Friday in the red, with S&P500 index losing 1.07%. Apart from the Fed expressing their commitment to raise interest rates market participants have been worried about valuations getting dear. S&P 500 P/E is getting close to 18 and disappointments with Caterpillar, 3M, IBM and Biogen Ideg’s earnings reports added to the worries of this market not being healthy enough to push into new highs. Additionally we had Apple publishing a record high quarterly result but the stock was hammered down by 9% the next trading day. This is not a sign of a bullish market but rather indicates that the willingness and commitment to pay higher prices and keep the uptrend intact is weak. China PMI being negative and a 6.8% drop in the US June New Home Sales report added to the negative sentiment. A look at the sectors reveals weakness in key sectors. All sectors came down last week but Industrials, Semiconductors, Basic Materials and Energy Stocks show signs of technical weakness.

S&P 500 e-mini future (ES) fell down from the resistance as expected and finished Friday’s trading inside the supportive range published in my previous reports. It is now trading near levels that should attract buyers .The price is at weekly pivot and fairly close to the lower Bollinger Bands and a 50 week SMA. Last week’s high was a lower high and suggests technical weakness in this index and price has now opened outside the up trending regression channel after wedging and then breaking out of the wedge.

ES D

S&P 500, Daily

ES reached my support range of 2073 – 2080 on Friday’s trading and the low of the day coincided with a 61.8% Fibonacci level. Stochastic oscillator is oversold and price is trading near pivotal support. As we have industrials etf XLI still is some distance away from the support levels I am expecting that ES cannot yet move higher but will either consolidate or correct further before finding serious demand. Financial sector also has space to correct lower and the same applies to Technology as well. This in fact applies to quite a few other sectors too and is likely to drag the US stocks lower before buyers emerge. Support and resistance levels in ES are at 2078 and 2116.50.

ES 240

S&P 500, 240 min

Price is trading between two intraday support levels at 2064.50 and 2078 while Stochastics is at the oversold threshold. The nearest 4h resistance level is at 2091.50 where a declining trendline coincides with the level. There was a hammer candle on Friday night but no follow through after the candle was formed. Market has been dropping for 4 days so we might get a move against this trend and a test of next resistance level. If ES can create a higher intraday low and hold above 2078 price can move higher towards the next resistance at 2091.50.

Conclusion

Long term picture in S&P 500 index has turned more bearish with the index making a lower high. The supports however are still in place and should attract buyers at levels not far from the current price action. This will probably lead to rally but due to the overall weakness in different sectors I expect that this rally will lead to another lower high and more sideways ranging before the market can become directional again.

Intraday chart shows some signs of buying in a form of a hammer in the 4h chart. This was probably short covering before the weekend and this morning the quiet market has been ranging sideways with low liquidity. After moving lower for four days it would not be a surprise to see a move higher but we need to see how traders will react once the US market opens and some serious volume comes in. Look for momentum reversal signals at support levels.

Today’s Currency Movers

EURUSD, Daily

EURUSD price, continues to bounce from the May lows near 1.0820. This corrective bounce has attempted, but so far failed, to print a new lower top from the previous 1.1216 high. Yesterday’s high of near 1.1018 was a good attempt at the 1.1030’s, my previous article forecasted lower top. Traders should expect for the market to range between the 1.1030’s and 1.0870’s, now that the previous resistance turned support 1.0970’s area has been deemed invalid, as price has tested the 1.0970’s area both from below and above. Relevant support levels are now observed at 1.0920, 1.0870 and 1.0820, while resistance levels are spotted at 1.1030, 1.1087 and 1.1216. Given that the EURUSD price action is still firmly within the downward slopping price channel, as well as the fact that bullish momentum is observed within the Stochastic Oscillator analysis, I continue to be on alert for sellers to emerge around the 1.1020’s-30’s for a re-test of the 1.0820’s; any breach of the 1.0820’s will open up the way towards the 1.0750’s.

Eurozone Jul PMIs disappointed today, with readings falling slightly from June. The manufacturing PMI dipped to 52.2 from 52.5 and the services to 53.8 from 54.4. However, data continues to show ongoing expansion across the Eurozone manufacturing sectors, which supports the ECB’s view that the recovery remains intact and is broadening if not accelerating.

As for next week’s U.S. Fed policy statement, it should support Fed Chair Yellen’s testimony where she said that the “FOMC is likely to begin liftoff this year, provided the economy continues to improve as forecast.” Traders should prepare for a relatively positive assessment of the U.S. economy.

• EUR PMIs : French PMI readings were much weaker than expected, with the manufacturing PMI falling back below the 50 point no change mark to 49.6 from 50.7 in June. The services reading slumped to 52.0 from 54.1. German corrections were not quite as pronounced and the dips to 51.5 in the manufacturing PMI and 53.7 in the services reading from 51.9 and 53.8 point to a stabilisation, rather than a marked correction. Still, the weak French numbers, highlight that risks to the Eurozone recovery remain and that France continues to underperform.

• JPY Japan flash manufacturing PMI : rose to 51.4 in July compared to 50.1 in June as both domestic orders and output rose — the fastest clip in 5-months. New orders rose to 51.3 from 49.6, output gained to 52.3 from 50.9.

• U.S. New Home Sales : June data on new home sales is out today and should reveal a 1.1% decline to a 540k (median 549k) pace from the 546k pace in May which set a new recent high.

Today’s Currency Movers

EURUSD, Daily

EURUSD price, having cleared the 1.0970’s at the time of this writing, is now on its way to print a new lower top (below the July 10th high of 1.1216), ideally around the 1.1030’s in order to keep the daily chart downtrend channel intact. The stochastic momentum indicator indicates that the current corrective bounce is picking up steam. A further move beyond the 1.1030’s should not be ruled out as price may extend towards the 1.1140’s before breaking down to continue towards my medium term downtrend price target near the 1.0750’s.

Markets are scaling back on any Grexit premiums since Greece has now paved the way for the start of official bailout talks by pushing through a number of reform measures last night. Another positive EUR development was that Spanish unemployment fell during Q2; however, at 22.37% it is still high.

The USD had some support as a strong existing home sales report helped USD sentiment. U.S. existing home sales rose 3.2% to a 5.49mm in June, which was better than expected.

CM 23 V2 2015-07-23 12:17:57

Main Macro Events Today

• GBP Retail Sales: Unexpectedly fell by 0.2% m/m. The median forecast had been for a 0.3% m/m rise, which would have been unchanged from May. The y/y figure worked out at +4.0%, down from May’s +4.7%. The weakness stemmed from a 0.3% drop in food sales and a 0.9% fall in household goods, which probably reflects month-to-month volatility as there doesn’t appear to be a rationale for the declines.

• EUR Spanish unemployment fell in Q2: Still very high 22.37% from 23.78% in the previous quarter. The government estimates growth at 1.0% q/q in Q2, and the Spanish economy continues to outperform the other big Eurozone countries as the reform measures take hold. Still, unemployment is slow to adjust down and the high youth unemployment rate also reflects remaining structural issues and is fuelling popular resistance to the reform path. With Spain heading for elections in autumn a repeat of the Greek debacle is not unlikely and the risk that reforms are being reversed is not negligible. It is expected that retail sales will expand 0.5% m/m in May (median +0.6%) after the 0.1% drop in April.

• NZD Reserve Bank of New Zealand : Cut rates 25 bps to 3.00%, matching expectations.

S&P 500 TURNED LOWER AS EXPECTED

Update: S&P 500 Turned Lower As Expected

S&P 500 e-mini future (ES) turned lower soon after hitting my projection level at 2122 and is currently trading at 2102.75. This move lower was triggered by substantial overnight losses in Apple and Microsoft shares after IBM had lost ground significantly in the earlier trading session.

Apple posted record quarterly profit but was strongly sold off. Apple shares tanked nearly 9% in after-hours at one stage trade iPhone shipments missed forecasts and forecast revenues shy of the $51.1 bln targeted, wiping of some $50 bln in market cap. Apple shares cut those losses back to -6%. The absorption of Nokia also tarnished Microsoft’s results to the tune of a $7.5 bln write-off and 5.1% revenue decline for a $3.2 bln net loss, knocking its shares over 4% lower after-hours. Yahoo also missed and sank 2.2%.

I have been suggesting in the last two reports on ES that this market will rally the above resistance and will hit significant supply between 2111.25 and  2134. This has now taken place and for the benefit of those that have shorted the index in the resistance or will be selling the rallies we need to focus on the likely moves from here. In the July 16th report I said that the supply inside the resistance area should bring the ES down to 2073 – 2080 range and there is no need to deviate from this view.

Stochastics are rolling over from the overbought zone indicating further move down. This is likely as the next support can be found at 2078 level. The 50% Fibonacci level coincides with this area at 2080, therefore I expect market to find support in 2073 – 2080 range. There is some intraday resistance at 2009 to 2010 that might provide a short selling opportunity for those not engaged at the short side yet. The next intraday resistance is at 2119.25. Look for momentum reversal signals to confirm the validity of these levels.

Today’s Currency Movers

EURUSD, Daily

EURUSD price, now having touched the lower end of my initial 1.0970’s corrective bounce target, should open up the way for a 1.1030’s lower top on any clean break of the 1.0970’s. Daily chart price action is still well contained within my downward sloping bear channel; Stochastic Oscillator analysis supports a further corrective bounce before any resumption of the daily chart downtrend. Traders may look to open new short positions within the 1.1030’s for a measured move (March lows – May highs) that may extend price lower towards a retest of the 1.0840’s.

Standard & Poor’s on Tuesday upgraded Greece’s sovereign credit rating by two notches and revised its outlook to stable from negative, citing euro zone countries initial agreement to start negotiations with the country on a third bailout. The probability of Greece leaving the Eurozone is less than 50% , however the country may still face shrinking GDP.

U.S. Fed’s annual industrial production revisions showed production knocked down to 0.2% in June, versus the prior 0.3% print, while May was left at -0.2%, with April revised up to a -0.3% pace from -0.5% previously. Capacity utilization for June was revised down sharply to 77.8% from 78.4%, while May was nudged to 77.7% from 78.2%, with April at 78.0% versus 78.5%. At the margin, the data add to the argument for the FOMC to delay a September rate hike.

Today’s Currency Movers

EURUSD, Daily

EURUSD price, now having cleared the 1.0840’s, is currently testing the May 27th lows as price action managed to dip briefly to 1.0811 earlier today in what looked like limit orders being filled. However, buyers soon emerged to pushed price back above the 1.0820 key support area. Traders should expect price to re-test the 1.0820 area several times as buyers seem to be re-emerging around that zone. If price can manage to close the day above the 1.0820’s this will further support the view of an initial bounce towards the 1.0970’s – 1.1030’s as discussed in my previous reports. Short term EURUSD traders should remain on alert for session closing prices above the key 1.0820’s support area that may open the way for an initial bounce towards the 1.0970’s -1.1030’s; however, if we see a session close below 1.0820’s that will favor fresh weakness towards the 1.0750’s.

Now that the Greek bailout deal has been put to the side for the moment, the markets can get back to focusing on important fundamental market moving data. The PMI number should dominate the remainder of the week with the Eurozone PMI numbers out on Friday.

The U.S. Fed’s Bullard said “the probability of a September rate liftoff is above 50%”, he also said that Greek uncertainties appear to be behind us, and that China’s stock market volatility is not large enough to impact U.S. monetary policy.

Weak Gold Reacted Lower As China Bought Less Gold Than Expected

Weak Gold Reacted Lower As China Bought Less Gold Than Expected

Gold, Weekly

Gold traded slightly below a major support level at 1130.40 on Friday and then moved even lower in Globex session at 2:30 am London time this morning. Price of Gold is down by 1.58% at the time of writing after Gold futures market was hit hard when it was at its weakest. Gold was trading at 1125 at the time when suddenly trading volumes increased by over 100% relative to average volumes over the past few hours. This aggressive selling during the hours when the market is at its thinnest took Gold down to a next major support level at 1080.

I warned about Gold’s long term weakness in my two previous reports. In June 8th report I pointed out that price action in Gold since the US Dollar index (DXY) started topping has not supported the Relative Strength idea. A market that has true relative strength bounces sharply higher when factors constraining its move higher are removed. This never happened in Gold even though the restraining factor of DXY strength was removed for a while. In my June 22nd report I pointed out several bearish indications in the long term technical picture: lower highs, a lower pointing 50 period SMA together with downward sloping trend channel and the fact that lack of momentum is indicating lack of serious long interest in this market.

This morning’s move took Gold down to a historical support from 2010 and very close to the lower end of the price channel. This bounced the price sharply higher while nearest resistance level is relatively close at 1130.40. The 23.6 Fibonacci retracement level at 1135.60 coincides with this resistance. The next resistance area is approx. at 1142.

Gold D

Gold, Daily

News that China has been much more moderate buyer in gold than it was thought to be contributed to the fall. For the first time in six years China unveiled how much gold it had accumulated since 2009. While markets had assumed that the Chinese government had been buying gold at a rate of approximately 40 tonnes per month the real number was just slightly above 8 tonnes. This added to the bearishness as one big buyer was much less active than was suggested by the analysts.

After trending lower in a regression channel the price of gold has now made an extended move to the downside. The levels near the long term channel bottom attracted some serious buying as gold has rallied over three percent from today’s low. The nearest significant resistance level is at 1130.40 while next resistance is at 1146. The 1130.40 resistance coincides with the channel low. The 1080 level at today’s low is obviously the nearest support level in the daily time frame.

Gold 240

Gold, 240 min

As price has moved so quickly lower there isn’t much to comment in terms of technical analysis. Also, the four hour picture is not significantly different from the daily chart. Price has rallied from a support and is now trading close to the mid-range of the previous candle. The lower 2 stdv Bollinger Band has limited the move higher and the price of gold has reacted slightly lower from the band over the last two hours. The nearest 4h resistance level is at 1129.60 while the support level is at 1080.

Conclusion 

The long term weakness that was visible in price action has now materialized in a form of a sharp move lower through weekly support levels at 1130 and 1141.70. These broken supports together with a former daily support at 1146 are now  a likely resistance area. Long term picture stays weak and suggests lower prices for gold but in short term we should see 1080 support holding and market testing the 1130 – 1146 resistance area. If price moves to this resistance area we should monitor price action for potential signs of momentum reversal at levels identified in this report. Obviously price move can turn inside this range and not at the exact levels but the principle stays the same: we should see price action based confirmation before considering short positions.
