Global macro overview for 14/03/2016

IIn the regional elections taken place last Sunday the German voters punished Chancellor Merkels conservatives, giving a thumbs-down to her open-door refugee policy and turning in droves to the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD). The result is a big setback for Merkel, who has led eurozone's largest economy for a decade, and could narrow her room to maneuver as she tries to convince her EU partners to seal a deal with Turkey to stem the tide of migrants. The political party of Merkel, the Christian Democrats (CDU), lost ground in all important states – Baden-Wuerttemberg and Rhineland-Palatinate in the west and Saxony-Anhalt in the east – which were together widely seen as offering a verdict on Merkel's liberal migrant policy. In conclusion, this contest was the biggest of Merkel's third-term and the broadest electoral test before the next German federal ballot in 18 months. If the main ballot get even worse, that this one, the future of the EU policy towards migrants and the whole economic foundation's might be completely changed, influencing the financial markets. Let's now take a look at the EUR/USD technical picture in the H4 time frame after the last rally on Friday. The local top was established at the level of 1.1217 and the market slowly went lower to test the support at the level of 1.1079. Currently, bulls are trying to re-gain the control in the market using the level of 1.1079 as a technical support to rally towards the level of 1.1217. Only a clear and sustained violation of the level of 1.0822 would change the current picture from bullish to bearish again.

Technical analysis of GBP/CHF for March 16, 2016

Technical outlook and chart setups:
The GBP/CHF pair has dropped below 1.4000 levels beyond what was expected and discussed earlier, but the pair is still above 1.3900 levels and that makes a valid case for a Wave 4 correction. Please note that the pair could stage a rally through 1.4300/20 levels till prices stay above 1.3900/20 levels. Also note that the pair is testing Fibonacci 0.618 support of the rally between 1.3750 and 1.4280 levels respectively. It is still recommended to remain long with risk at 1.3900 levels. Immediate support is seen at 1.3920 levels, while resistance is at 1.4300/20 levels respectively. Only a drop below 1.3900 levels would discard the bullish count.

Trading recommendations:
Remain long for now, stop at 1.3900, target 1.4300.

Daily analysis of major pairs for March 30, 2016

UR/USD: The EUR/USD pair broke upwards on Tuesday, moving above the support line at 1.1250, and is now very close to the resistance line at 1.1300. Actually, that resistance line has been tested and it would be retested as the bulls push the price beyond it. The next target would then be another resistance line at 1.1350, which would also be breached to the upside.

USD/CHF: The pair broke downwards on Tuesday, moving below the resistance level at 0.9700, and is now very close to the support level at 0.9650. Actually, that support level would be tested as the bulls push the price beyond it. The next target would then be another support level at 0.9600, which would also be breached to the downside.

GBP/USD: As it was prognosticated, this currency trading instrument went upwards yesterday, resulting in a Bullish Confirmation Pattern on the chart. The EMA 11 is now above the EMA 56, as the RSI period 14 is above the level 50. The next targets for the bulls are located at the distribution territories of 1.4450 and 1.4500. The distribution territory at 1.4400 has been previously tested and it would be breached to the upside very soon.

USD/JPY: The USD/JPY pair broke down yesterday, threatening to invalidate the recent bullish outlook on the market. In case the price moves below the demand level at 112.00, the bullish outlook would be completely invalidated. However, a rally from here could reinforce the recent bullish outlook.

EUR/JPY: As it was expected, the EUR/JPY pair trended upwards on Tuesday (March 29, 2016). The price has moved upwards by 80 pips this week, now above the demand zone at 127.00. The next targets for the bulls are located at the supply zones of 127.50 and 128.00. However, this does not rule out any possibilities of pullbacks along the way.

Elliott wave analysis of EUR/NZD for March 31 - 2016

Wave summary:
We have likely seen a low at 1.6229 just above the 1.6210 target. To confirm that a low has been seen, we need a break above minor resistance at 1.6508 and, more importantly, a break above resistance at 1.6725 that will call for renewed upside pressure towards 1.7220 and 1.8551. Hopefully, we will see upside acceleration this time around, then we will not set our expectations too high as we have been disappointed a couple of times now.

Trading recommendation:
We bought EUR at 1.6250 and will place our stop at a break-even point. If you are not long in EUR yet, then buy near 1.6292 or upon a break above 1.6508.

Elliott wave analysis of EUR/NZD for April 6 - 2016

Wave summary:

We are still looking for support near 1.6640 to protect the downside for a rally above 1.6833 confirming upside acceleration towards 1.7220 on the way higher to 1.8550. Even if minor support at 1.6640 should be broken, back-up support is seen near 1.6578. It will take an unexpected break below support at 1.6430 to question this rally.

Trading recommendation: We are long in EUR from 1.6250 with stop placed at 1.6600. If you are not long in EUR yet, then buy near 1.6640 or upon a break above 1.6800 and use the same stop at 1.6600.

Elliott wave analysis of EUR/NZD for April 7 - 2016

Wave summary:
We are still waiting for some real upside acceleration, but to signal the beginning of this upside acceleration, a break above resistance at 1.6800 and, more importantly, a break above 1.6874 is needed to call for a rally to 1.7220 on the way higher towards 1.8550. Support is seen at 1.6624 and is expected to continue to protect the downside for a break above 1.6800. Should support at 1.6624 be broken, back-up support is seen at 1.6585.

Trading recommendation:
We are long in EUR from 1.6250 with stop placed at 1.6600. If you are not long in EUR yet, then buy near 1.6624 or upon a break above 1.6800 and use the same stop at 1.6600.

Technical analysis of Gold for April 08, 2016

Technical outlook and chart setups:
Gold continues drifting sideways for now with prices trading around $1,236.00 levels. Please note that the metal has broken out of its resistance trend line and is expected to receive short-term support around $1,130.00 levels. Another probability is that the metal is unfolding as a triangle and has completed three waves out of the 5 waves. It is recommended to remain flat for now and watch out for a reaction around $1,230.00 levels before positioning trades. Immediate resistance is seen at $1,244.00/45.00 levels, while support is at $1,230.00 and lower respectively. A push lower into $1,210.00 levels would confirm that the metal is unfolding as a triangle.

Trading recommendations: Remain flat for now and watch for a reaction around $1,230.00 levels.

Technical analysis of EUR/JPY for April 11, 2016

General overview for 11/04/2016:
The current wave development looks to be stopped inside of a possible triangle pattern which is typical for wave (b) correction. Nevertheless, the corrective cycle might evolve into a less complex and time-consuming pattern, especially if the intraday resistance at the level of 124.24 is clearly violated. For now, however, sideways price action below the weekly pivot is expected.

Support/Resistance:
122.53 - Intraday Support
124.11 - Weekly Pivot
124.24 - Intraday Resistance
125.66 - WR1

Trading recommendations:
Traders should sell the triangle pattern area with SL above the level of 124.24 and TP at the lows of the triangle pattern around the level of 122.50.
