NZD/USD: Triple Bottom; Risk Of Further S/T Squeeze - NAB
First appeared on eFXplus on Jun 24 - 03:00 PM

NAB discusses NZD/USD technical outlook and flags a scope for further gains in the near-term ahead of 0.6680.

"The break of previous 2019 range lows at 0.6575/80 delivered a test towards our one-month target (low of 0.6482), however this indecisive downside breakout has now completed a triple bottom, highlighting strong support  at 0.6480/00," NAB notes. 

"ST momentum bias has shifted to positive, confirming further short squeeze risk. MT momentum has shifted to a neutral bias confirming a necessary pause in the  well-established downtrend. We anticipate a short squeeze being capped in the May/June 0.6480/0.6680 range before the MT downtrend again takes hold," NAB adds.

AUD/USD - COMMENT-AUD/USD Shorts Face Relative RBA, Fed Risks
First appeared on eFXplus on Jun 24 - 12:40 PM

AUD/USD broke above the 21-DMA and set a new 5-day high as risks for shorts increase.
Today's Dallas Fed June manufacturing index fell to -12.1 from -5.3 in May, which bolstered market expectations for Fed cuts.
Rates markets have 25 bps of cuts for July 31 fully priced in and are beginning to factor in 50 bps of cuts FEDWATCH.
U.S. rates markets price in a total of 75 bps of cuts by 2019's end while Australian markets foresee just over 50 bps for the same period RBAWATCH.
The expectations disparity helped tighten Australian-U.S.
yield spreads and lift AUD/USD.
Comments from RBA Governor Lowe overnight also helped boost AUD/USD as he said it is legitimate to question the effectiveness of global monetary easing.
Lowe also said if everyone is easing the effect on exchange rates is offset nS9N21I020.
Lowe's comments could be taken by some investors as a reluctance to cut aggressively, which could underpin AUD/USD.
As it stands now AUD/USD bulls are gaining greater control and technicals highlight that.
RSIs are rising, a monthly doji candle has formed and the 21-DMA lends support.
Tests of the 55-DMA, daily cloud base and June high seem likely.
The 200-DMA will be targeted if June's high breaks.

EUR/USD: Longs A Super-Trade In The Month Heading To Fed's Cut - Nordea
First appeared on eFXplus on Jun 24 - 11:15 AM

Nordea Research discusses EUR/USD outlook and keeps flagging long EUR/USD position as the second-best G-10 FX trade in months leading up to the first Fed cut, only outpaced by a long EUR/NZD position.

"As we have shown in recent FX Weeklies, long EUR/USD is usually a super trade in the month heading into the first Fed cut. Only long EUR/NZD has a better track-record in to the first Fed cut.

ECB easing is also a done deal now, as Draghi hinted of easing unless the outlook improves (more QE and a rate cut). The outlook will not improve (before 2020), but the ECB usually delivers when projections are updated – i.e. in September (they will ease with a time-lag after the Fed)," Nordea notes.

GBP/USD: A Weekly Bullish Englufing; Levels To Watch - SocGen
First appeared on eFXplus on Jun 24 - 09:16 AM

Societe Generale Research discusses GBP/USD technical outlook, and flags a scope for further gains after forming a bullish engulfing pattern last week.

" GBP/USD  recently flirted with the up-sloping trend drawn since 2016 and approached December lows of 1.2505/1.2477. It has staged an initial recovery from those levels forming a Bullish Engulfing last week. The pair has now crossed above an hourly descending channel and is now testing recent peak of 1.2758/1.2815. Daily RSI has been posting positive divergence which denotes signs of stabilization are slowly becoming visible however a breakout is awaited," SocGen notes. 

"A move beyond 1.2758/1.2815 will mean possibility of a larger rebound towards the 200-DMA near 1.2950, also the 50% retracement of recent correction with next hurdle at the down sloping trend from April 2018 at 1.3025/48. 1.2698/60 is immediate support," SocGen adds.

USD: Weakness Likely To Extend As Key Technical Support Levels Are Broken - MUFG
First appeared on eFXplus on Jun 24 - 08:29 AM

MUFG Research discusses the USD outlook and flags a scope for further weakness in the near-term.

"The US dollar has continued to trade at weaker levels during the Asian trading session after breaking lower at the end of last week. The dollar index finally broke below its 200-day moving average on Friday at 96.600 which opens the door to further weakness in the near-term.

Last week’s clear signal form the Fed that it is planning to cut rates as soon as at their next FOMC meeting in July is beginning to weigh more heavily on the US dollar especially given there is a material risk that the Fed could deliver a 0.50 basis point cut," MUFG notes. 

"Even if there is positive outcome from talks between Presidents Trump and Xi at this week’s G20 Summit, which are unlikely to be sufficient on their own to prompt the Fed to shelve plans for rate cuts in the near-term," MUFG adds.

Tech Targets: EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD, NZD/USD, USD/JPY - UOB
First appeared on eFXplus on Jun 24 - 12:00 AM

EUR/USD: 

24-HOUR VIEW Rally has scope to extend above 1.1400 but for today, the major 1.1450 level is not expected to come into the picture. We woefully underestimated EUR strength as instead of “edging above 1.1320”, it blew past this level and rocketed to 1.1377. While overbought, the rally has scope to extend above 1.1400. For today, the next major resistance at 1.1450 is not expected to come into the picture. On the downside, 1.1320 is deemed as strong enough to hold any intraday pull-back (minor support is at 1.1345).

1-3 WEEKS VIEW Scope for rally to extend further but EUR is expected to face solid resistance at 1.1450. While our expectation from last Friday (21 Jun, spot at 1.1290) that “EUR is likely to move into a ‘positive phase’ soon” was not wrong, the timeliness of the call could be ‘earlier’. EUR not only eclipsed several strong resistance levels with ease but also hit a 3-month high of 1.1377 before ending the week higher by a whopping 1.41% (NY close of 1.1366). The strong and impulsive rally suggests there is scope for the current ‘positive phase’ to extend further even though March’s peak near 1.1450 is expected to offer solid

GBP/USD:  

24-HOUR VIEW GBP could move above the month-to-date high of 1.2763 but 1.2800 is unlikely to yield so easily. Last Friday, we were of the view the “advance in GBP could edge above 1.2730 but the month-to-date high of 1.2763 is likely out of reach”. GBP subsequently rose to 1.2748 before closing right at the high. Upward momentum has improved and for today, a move above 1.2763 would not be surprising but the next resistance at 1.2800 may not yield so easily. Support is at 1.2715 followed by 1.2685.

1-3 WEEKS VIEW A NY closing above 1.2763 would indicate start of a ‘positive phase’. Our narrative from last Thursday (20 Jun, spot at 1.2655) wherein the “uptick in momentum suggests GBP could test the month-to-date high at 1.2763” appears to be on track as GBP touched 1.2748 last Friday (21 Jun). While it is early days yet, there are some nascent signs that GBP could have made a short-term at 1.2507 last week. Meanwhile, GBP has to register a NY closing above 1.2763 in order to indicate the start of a ‘positive phase’ that could potentially lead to a rise towards 1.2850. On the downside, only a move below 1.2650 would indicate that the current upward pressure has eased.

AUD/USD: 

24-HOUR VIEW AUD could move higher but 0.6980 could be just out of reach for now. While AUD “edged higher” as expected, it didn’t quite reach the level indicated at 0.6950 (high of 0.6938). The underlying tone has improved and for today, we see chance for AUD to move above 0.6950. However, the next resistance at 0.6980 could be just out of reach for now. Support is at 0.6920 followed by 0.6900.

1-3 WEEKS VIEW AUD has moved into a sideway-trading phase, likely to probe the top of the range first. There is not much to add to the update from last Friday (21 Jun, spot at 0.6920). As indicated, AUD has moved into a ‘sideway-trading phase’. However, the improved underlying tone suggests AUD is likely to probe the top of the expected 0.6860/0.6980 range first. For now, the prospect for a sustained rise above 0.6980 is not high but it would continue to increase as long as AUD does not move below 0.6860.

NZD/USD: 

24-HOUR VIEW NZD could probe the 0.6620 resistance but any gain is viewed as part of 0.6570/0.6620 sideway trading range. Instead of trading sideways, NZD dropped to 0.6555 before rebounding quickly to end day just below the high of 0.6605. Despite the rapid bounce, upward momentum has not improved by much. That said, it could probe the 0.6620 resistance even though any gain is viewed as part of a 0.6570/0.6620 range.


1-3 WEEKS VIEW Recovery in NZD could test 0.6620. No change in view from last Friday, see reproduced update below.

While we indicated yesterday (20 Jun, spot at 0.6555) that “the recovery in NZD could test 0.6620”, the rapid advance of +0.70% (NY close of 0.6585) was not exactly expected. Upward momentum has improved further and from here, a break of 0.6620 would indicate the start of ‘positive phase’ that could challenge the month-to-date high near 0.6680. The prospect for such a scenario is not very high for now but it would continue to increase as long as NZD does not move back below 0.6540 (level was at 0.6515 yesterday).

USD/JPY:  

24-HOUR VIEW USD could continue to trade sideways, likely not moving much out of last Friday’s 107.04/107.73 range. We highlighted last Friday that USD is “deep in oversold territory and the next support at 107.00 is unlikely to come under serious threat”. We added, USD is “more likely to consolidate its loss and trade sideways between 107.00 and 107.65”. The subsequent price action was close to our narrative as USD rebounded from 107.04 to 107.73 before dropping back to end the day little changed at 107.30. Indicators are still unwinding from oversold conditions and USD could continue to trade sideways for now, likely not moving much out of last Friday’s 107.04/107.73 range.

1-3 WEEKS VIEW Break of 107.00 would shift focus to 106.60. USD tried but failed to break the 107.00 level that was first highlighted last Thursday (20 Jun, spot at 107.70). The price action was not exactly surprising as deeply oversold shorter-term conditions suggest USD could consolidate and trade sideways for 1 to 2 days. As long as the ‘key resistance’ at 108.00 is intact (no change in level from last Friday), the current ‘negative phase’ that started 3 weeks ago (03 Jun, spot at 108.30) appears to have legs to extend lower. From here, a break of 107.00 would indicate that USD is ready to tackle the next support at 106.60.
