Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (April 9 - 13, 2018)

Here’s the market outlook for the week:

©

EURUSD
Dominant bias: Bearish
The pair is bearish in the short-term, which is still a weak bias. Price went downwards last week, moving briefly below the support line at 1.2250, and closing above it on Friday. There are resistance lines at 1.2300, 1.2350 and 1.2400. Things will go bullish when the resistance line at 1.2400 is breached to the upside. There are support lines at 1.2250, 1.2200 and 1.2150. Things will go strongly bearish when the support line at 1.2150 is breached to the downside.

USDCHF
Dominant bias: Bullish
The market remains bullish in the short-term (and its fate is largely subject to whatever happens to EURUSD). Price went upwards last week, almost reaching the resistance level at 0.9650, and then getting corrected lower. The short-term bullishness will be rendered ineffectual only when price goes below the support level at 0.9500. On the other hand, a movement above the resistance level at 0.9700 will result in a stronger bullish bias on the market.

GBPUSD
Dominant bias: Neutral
The market is neutral because there was no significant directional movement last week. Price hovers between the distribution territory at 1.4200 and the accumulation territory at 1.3900. Price would need to go above that distribution territory or below the accumulation territory, for a directional bias to form, but that would require a big momentum to happen. A possibility of a movement to the upside is very strong because the outlook on GBP pairs is very bullish for this week. Therefore a rally is likely in the market.

USDJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
The trading instrument is bearish in the long-term, and bullish in the short-term. In the short-term, price gained 180 pips from the low of last week, reaching the supply level at 107.50. Then there was a slight bearish correction in the market, which would eventually turn out to be an opportunity to buy long at better prices. A rally is very likely this week, which would push price upwards by 200 pips. This movement would be strong enough to override the long-term bearishness in the market.

EURJPY
Dominant bias: Bearish
This cross is bearish in the long-term, and rather neutral in the short-term. Another reality is that the market condition is currently choppy, but that might come to an end when a rally occurs in the market. There is a strong likelihood of a rally here, owing to a bullish expectation on JPY pairs for this week. The supply zones at 131.50, 132.00 and 132.50 could be reached when a bullish movement begins.

GBPJPY
Dominant bias: Bullish
GBPJPY cross remains bullish, especially in the medium-term. The market gained roughly 500 pips on March and it has gained over 200 pips this month, closing above the demand zone at 150.50 on Friday. There is a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market, and thus, price is expected to continue going upwards this week, reaching the supply zones at 151.00, 151.50 and 152.00. The supply zone at 152.00 could even be exceeded.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:
