Here’s the market outlook for the week:


Dominant bias: Bearish
This pair trended upwards last week, briefly went above the resistance line at 1.0750, and then retraced southwards. There are support lines at 0.0700 and 0.0650, which may attempt to impede any bearish attempts this week. The bearishness in the market still holds, until price goes above the resistance line at 1.0800, which is supposed to happen this week. The outlook on EURUSD and other EUR pairs, is bullish for this week.

Dominant bias: Neutral
This month, USDCHF has generally moved between the support level at 0.9900 and the resistance level at 1.0100, having brought about a neutral bias on the market. Movements above the level at 1.0000 would cause short-term bullish signals, and movements below the level would cause short-term bearish signals, while the long-term bias remain neutral. Price is expected to go south this week, reaching the support level at 0.9900. Protracted selling pressure would be needed to break that support level to the downside.

Dominant bias: Bullish
As is was anticipated, GBPUSD went significantly upwards last week; and so were other GBP pairs (EURGBP went south). Price skyrocketed by 370 pips, reaching the distribution territory 1.2900. Price has moved sideways since then – in what could be called a pause in the northward journey. This week, the outlook on GBPUSD, as well as other GBP pairs, remains bullish. So, when momentum returns to the market, it would most probably favor bulls. Price may target the distribution territories at 1.2850, 1.2900 and 1.2950 this week.

Dominant bias: Bearish
This trading instrument consolidated throughout last week, in a context of a downtrend. A movement above the supply level at 111.00 would result in a bullish signal, as the current bearish bias is overridden. A movement below the demand level at 108.00 would result in a clear Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, as price goes further south. The outlook on USD/JPY is bearish for this week. Therefore, southward a southward movement is more likely.

Dominant bias: Bearish
This cross pair made effort to go up last week, rising from the demand zone at 115.00, and reaching the supply zone at 117.50 (a movement of 250 pips). The bullish effort was not strong enough to override the extant bearish outlook on the market. Price was engaged in some bearish correction on Friday; plus the last week rise in price may turn out to be a good opportunity to sell short at better prices. The outlook on other JPY pairs is also bearish for this week.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:
