Today’s Forecast for Important Trading Indicators
- EURUSD – Euro recovers some losses on Draghi’s remarks, moves above $1.196. Euro settled above $1.1900 after president Draghi said that financial risks have now decreased. The ECB figure is also expected to talk today at Trinity College, in Dublin, while the Flash PMI numbers come out. Euro-Dollar currently trades in a range between 1.2092 and 1.1825, maintaining its bullish stance, while investors wait on Draghis speech at 08:00.
- GBPUSD – Sterling breaks above $1.35 on positive UK data, weak US Dollar. The British Pound surged and currently trades towards 1.3600 against the Dollar after a better than expected Public Sector Net Borrowing report was released yesterday. The rally took GBPUSD 100 pips higher, nearing the pre-Carney level at 1.3588 while investors eye the next resistance at 1.36150.
- USDJPY – Dollar plummets against Yen as North Korea prepares for another H-Bomb test. Dollar moved 61.80% lower at 111.71 since its latest pick at 112.70 as North Korea said N.K. H-Bomb test is ready for another test, and it could occur any moment. The retracement started as a means on taking profits ahead of the closing of the week, however it was supported by the N.K. development later in the session.
- USOIL – Crude maintains bullish tone above $50, in consolidation, despite glut from hurricanes. Crude Oil moved in a range between $50.17/b and $50.82/b on a mixed trading session. Hurricanes Irma and Maria damaged storage terminals in the Caribbean and a re-routing of the fuel to the already Gulf Coast will add to the supply glut.
- XAUUSD – Gold slumped for another session despite N.K. crisis, breaks below the 38.20% retracement. Gold declined to a fresh low of $1288.00 on Dollar’s rally after the Fed announced balance sheet normalisation will start next month.
