Here’s the market outlook for the week:

Dominant bias: Bullish
This pair went upwards last week, creating a short-term bullish signal, before price got corrected lower on Friday. This week, a movement above the resistance line at 1.1900 would reinforce the bullish bias (an unlikely event). On the other hand, a movement below the support lines at 1.1750 and 1.1700 would result in a bearish bias. The downwards movement is more likely because the outlook on EUR is bearish for this week.

Dominant bias: Bullish
USDCHF is precariously bullish. Price did not do much last week, save movement of about 50 pips to the downside. The situation of the market is currently dicey, but price movement would be largely determined by whatever happens to EURUSD. A weak EURUSD may cause the current bullish outlook on USDCHF to be sustained; otherwise a smooth southward journey would be witnessed this week.

Dominant bias: Bullish
There is a “buy” signal on the Cable – with a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market. Price gained over 210 pips last week, and there is much room for price to go upwards this week, reaching the distribution territories 1.3300, 1.3350 and 1.3400. The “buy” signal would not become invalid unless the accumulation territories at 1.3150 and 1.3100 are breached to the downside.

Dominant bias: Bullish
This instrument is bullish in the long-term, and bearish in the short-term. Price went downwards last week but not much (closing below the supply level at 112.00 on Friday). There would be a bearish signal when price goes downwards by 200 pips – and that may also bring about a bearish bias in the long-term as well. Should price go upwards from here, the extant bullish bias would be sustained.

Dominant bias: Bullish.
The market went upwards in the last few days, testing the supply zone at 133.50. Then the market began to go downwards on Thursday, losing about 120 pips. The bias is bullish in the long-term, and would get strengthen as price goes northwards. There are demand zones at 132.00, 131.50 and 131.00 which would try to impede further bearish movement (for the bias would turn bearish when price goes below the demand zone at 131.00).

Dominant bias: Bearish
GBPJPY consolidated throughout last week, and the consolidation could go on this week until there is a rise in momentum. Price would either go above the supply zone at 150.00 (resulting in a bullish outlook); or price could go below the demand zone at 147.00, staying below it (which would put more emphasis on the bearishness of the market). As long as price stays below the aforementioned supply zone or above the demand zone, it would be deemed that the consolidation is ongoing, albeit in the context of an uptrend.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:
