    EUR/USD: general analysis

    Current trend

    The Fed holds its finial meeting of the year on Wednesday. Many market participants expect a hike in US interest rates, so if the forecast is confirmed, the European currency is likely to weaken.

    However, as long as inflation has not reached the target level of 2% yet, it might be seen as a determining factor for a forthcoming decision. Another negative aspect is Manufacturing PMI which came in below the key level of 50 points. This data might indicate a slowdown in economic growth.

    Thus, in its decision making, the Fed will consider labor market statistics, inflation rate and the world economic situation.

    Supportandresistance

    Since the opening of the trading day, the European currency has been slightly declining against the US Dollar.

    The key resistance level is still at 1.1040 the breakout of which would allow the price to continue growing towards 1.1150-1.1200.

    Support level: 1.0925.

    The nearest resistance level: 1.1055.

    Trading tips

    Short positions can be opened after the breakdown of the level of 1.0925 with the target at 1.0875 and stop-loss at 1.0950.

    AUD/JPY: pair resumed its decline

    Current trend

    The AUD/JPY pair has declined from its local lows, reached in the first week of December. The Japanese currency has gained support form speculations over the upcoming Fed meeting. Though a hike in US interest rates is forecasted, investors suggest market reaction might be different than expected. It is possible that monetary policy tightening has already been priced into the market.

Employment Change came in at 74.1K while a decline in the indicator by 10.0K had been forecasted. Unemployment Rate was down to 5.8% from 5.9% against expectations of an increase to 6.0%.

    It is recommended to wait for clearer trading signals.

    Support levels: 87.00, 86.45 (10 November low), 86.00, 85.69, 85.00.

    Resistance levels: 87.30, 88.00, 88.60, 89.12 (10 December high), 89.59, 90.00, 90.34, 90.71 (4 December high), 91.00.

    Trading tips

    Long positions can be opened after the breakout and consolidation above the level of 87.30 with targets at 88.00, 88.60, 89.00 and stop-loss at 86.70. Validity – 2-4 days.

    USD/CAD: review and forecast

    Current trend

    On Monday, the USD/CAD pair hit its highest levels in more than 11 years. The demand for the US Dollar is strong ahead of the Fed meeting. The Canadian Dollar, in its turn, is under enormous pressure from falling oil prices.

    Most investors expect a hike in US interest rate by 0.25 basis points. It is the tone of Fed’s Chair Janet Yellen’s comments that still raises doubts. If she points to a slow-paced series of rate increases, the USD will strengthen slightly. Otherwise, in case of a more hawkish view, a surge in the USD is expected.

    Consumer Price Index is due today in the US. In monthly terms, zero inflation is expected; in annual terms, analysts forecast an increase from 0.2% to 0.4%. More positive data will strengthen the USD.

    Later on, BoC Governor Stephen Poloz gives his speech. Low oil prices are strongly affecting the country’s economy, and the Regulator might reduce its interest rate to minus -0.5%. If such a possibility is confirmed, the CAD would weaken more against the USD.

    Support and resistance

    On the daily chart, a doji pattern has formed that suggests the possibility of a downward correction.

    Support levels: 1.3675, 1.3623, 1.1355.

    Resistance levels: 1.3780, 1.3823, 1.3900.

    Trading tips

    Long positions can be opened above the level of 1.3785 with targets at 1.3825 and 1.3900.

    Short positions can be opened below the level of 1.3675 with targets at 1.3630 and 1.3560.

    AUD/USD: in contracting triangle





    Current trend

    Yesterday, the Federal Reserve raised US interest rates. This decision confirms the Fed is confident that US economic recovery is sustainable and suggests the Regulator has a favorable outlook for the global economy.

    RBA, in its turn, is likely to keep loose monetary policy due to weak inflation. Moreover, the Australian Dollar is under pressure from a continuous fall in commodity prices, in iron ore price in particular, as Australia remains the largest exporter of this raw material. Therefore, the AUD/USD pair tends to continue declining.



    Support and resistance

    On the daily chart, a contracting triangle has formed with the lower border near the level of 0.7190 and the upper border at 0.7335 (EMA144). The price is likely to breakdown the lower border of the triangle and continue declining to 0.7100, 0.7030, 0.6980 and 0.6910 (year lows).

    In case of a correctional growth, the price might reach the level of 0.7335 (EMA144 on the daily chart). An upward trend would resume only after the consolidation above the levels of 0.7465 (EMA200 on the daily chart) and 0.7510 (23.6% Fibonacci).

    Support levels: 0.7215, 0.7170, 0.7100, 0.7030, 0.6980, 0.6910.

    Resistance levels: 0.7300, 0.7350, 0.7400, 0.7500.



    Trading tips

    Short positions can be opened from the current level with targets at 0.7170, 0.7150, 0.7110, 0.7090, 0.7030, 0.6950, 0.6910 and stop-loss at 0.7250.

    Long positions can be opened from the level of 0.7260 with targets at 0.7300, 0.7335, 0.7410, 0.7450, 0.7490 and stop-loss at 0.7190.
