President Trump has been released from the hospital and there have been new hopes of the additional economic stimulus package. As a result, US equities, Crude and EURUSD have rallied and Japanese Yen has continued to slide. Additionally, EURUSD gained on the release of much better than expected retail sales numbers (4.4% MoM vs. 2.4% expected). News and rumours helped EURUSD to move outside the descending regression channel and CADJPY to our target two. RBA kept the rates unchanged and has sent the AUDUSD towards our target. By reading further you agree with our disclaimer at the bottom of this page and acknowledge that we do not provide investment advice.
In Friday’s Price Action Analysis video we provided two updated target ranges and yesterday we said that the willingness to buy CADJPY on Friday suggests that there’s more upside to come. Now CADJPY has hit both targets. If you would like to know how to better take advantage of our analysis, you might want to consider joining our live workshop today. I will be there answering your questions and helping you to grow as a trader. You can register your seat here.
We said yesterday that the 1.1753 – 1.1786 range is a key resistance zone, and if EURUSD pushes above this range, it moves outside the descending regression channel. This has now happened and EURUSD has bounced higher from 1.1769 level that used to be a resistance. EURUSD is trending higher but there is some loss of momentum at the time of writing this report. Fed Meeting Minutes due to be published tomorrow is a likely focus on top of any news on stimulus negotiations. The pair is now trading at the upper end of the recent channel. The key S&R zones for EURUSD are here:
- 1.1752 – 1.1769, support (two S&R levels with a 38.2% Fibo-level and SMA(10) in between)
- 1.1811 – 1.1824, resistance (50% Fibonacci retracement and an S&R level)
- 1.1858 – 1.1872, resistance (61.8% Fibonacci retracement and an S&R level)
- 1.1917 – 1.1926, resistance (78.6% Fibonacci retracement and an S&R level)
Fibonacci levels are drawn from September 1st high to September 25th low. For clarity, these points are marked on the chart with blue arrows.
The Australian central bank RBA, left the rates unchanged as expected. Both the cash rate and their target yield for bonds with 3-year maturity were left unchanged (0.25%). This announcement was met with some buying that was, however, soon thwarted by institutional sellers stepping in and driving the AUDUSD rate lower and all the way to our target 1. If the pair, for whatever reason, moves into the resistance area again, we will not be looking for sell signals any longer.
