Today’s Forecast for Important Trading Indicators

Market Movers

  • EURUSD – EURO breaks below $1.24 against DOLLAR as correction continues. EURO seems to have found a top at the $1.25 hurdle as the bearish correction continues amid a global equity sell-off. Investor risk aversion shifted market appetite taking the pair to 1.2365 level, the bottom of the 150 pips range, whereas the top betides at $1.25. Positive Eurozone data discounted rapidly.
  • USDJPY – YEN moves DOLLAR on the downside as Asian Equities suffer huge losses. The Dollar-Yen pair declined in the Monday session as Asian equities got hammered with Nikkei seeing a 7% drop on the day, the largest decline since 1990. Sentiment on the pair was bullish amid the US Equities downturn, however, the US/JP Bulls battle kept price above the 109.00 handle owed to good US data.
  • GBPUSD – POUND falls below $1.40 after 8 sessions following panic sell-off. CABLE plummeted over 1% yesterday following a general panic sell-off in the global equities markets as institutional investors started taking profits and markets correcting. The $1.40 is likely to act as a battleground level, where either the bulls or bears will take control over one another. If the fall continues, possibilities are that the pair will move lower.
  • USOIL – OIL prices dragged lower amid US Equities turmoil and anticipate March rate hike. WTI price declined $1.7 per barrel owed to the broader sharp turmoil of the financial markets and the rise of USD. Investors pushed price lower to a deeper correction as chances that an US interest rate hike will eventuate in March increased. The take-profit started last Friday following speculations.
  • XAUUSD – GOLD prices higher as risk appetite shifts to safe-haven following panic selling. Spot GOLD rose $7/oz in the Monday session following a global sell-off in global markets and an upward pressure due to a correction on the 23.60% Fibonacci. As long as the 1327 level holds bulls are likely to extend price towards 1350.
  • US Indexes – DJ fell by 4.60%, S&P 500 by -4.10%.
  • European Indexes – UK 100 declined by 1.46%, DE 30 depreciated by 0.76%.
  • Asian Indexes – ASX 200 plummeted by 3.23%, Nikkei 225 by -4.73%, Hang Seng trades 4.47% lower.
  • US Equities – BoA plunged by 5.29%, Exxon Mobil by -5.69%.
