Video: Oil, EUR, AUD to move lower


Jan.13.2015

Good thing Monday was pretty light on economic data because it gave all traders time to catch up on Golden Globe gossip.

But if you're looking to trade the euro or Aussie dollar this week, then you might want to take a closer look at the technical analysis and the supporting fundamentals before making your trading decision.

Despite the impressive non-farm payroll data which showed employment has got much better in the US, the US dollar didn’t show much dance moves on the forex dance floor the start of the week. We blame it all on the Golden Globes and the Pentagon Social Media hack by ISIS.

 Oil continues to move down and settled at the 46 level on Monday’s New York session, which means more gains for the US dollar.

 EUR/USD remains on a downtrend but formed a spinning top candlestick pattern on the daily dance floor after reaching our previous bearish target at 1.1880. Our next bearish target remains at 1.1635, but seriously, how low can EUR/USD go? If the Greeks decide to exit the Eurozone, we could see even more drops in the pair.

Mr. Aussie reached our bearish target at 0.808 as he dance against Ms. USA, and then bounced up. At least we got to make some delicious pips before he changed directions. So now the pair could have a correction towards our pivot level at 0.831 or a Fibonacci retracement level like the 23% or the 38%, before heading back down to our next bearish target at 0.773. Thursday’s Aussie employment change data (1:30 am GMT) could set the direction for Mr. Aussie on the forex dance floor for the remaining days of January.

For the month of December, a mere 5.3K increase in hiring is expected, far weaker compared to November’s 42.7K gain and October’s 13.7K rise. In this case, the report would indicate a sharp downturn in employment, which could weigh on Australia’s spending and growth figures later on. Also, with a weak pickup in hiring expected, Australia’s jobless rate is unlikely to budge from its 12-year high of 6.3%.
