Today’s Forecast for Important Trading Indicators

Market Movers

  • EURUSD – EURO stronger against DOLLAR, closes trading session above $.125. EURO reached a weekly high in Thursday’s session following an array of data from the EU. The pair extended its gains forming a second wave up and it is possible that a third wave up reaching fresh multi-year highs will complete the upwards move before a substantial correction takes place.


  • GBPUSD – POUND continues with continuation pattern, extends gains to 1.4260. CABLE rose against DOLLAR for a third consecutive trading day shrugging off a poor Manufacturing PMI report and stronger US fundamentals. The pair could hit the $1.43 level reached last week once more and this could occur even today if the US Payroll report comes out worse than expected. Markets eye the Construction PMI at 09:30 GMT.
  • USDJPY – YEN losses steam in quiet week, lets DOLLAR rise as good data released. The Dollar-Yen pair rose yesterday owed to a weak YEN and partially owed to positive releases from the US. Although the pair rose to a daily high of 109.70, bulls retired few positions as US bond price fell on higher growth and inflation expectations. Investors will focus in the long-waited NFP release today at 13:30 GMT.


  • USOIL – OIL prices extended for a second consecutive session, breaks above $64.60 handle. WTI price rose again as OPEC’s compliance keeps kicking in, offsetting soaring US production concerns. The recent high of $66.54 per barrel is likely to be reached in the very short-term; extension higher may be possible.
  • XAUUSD – GOLD prices gradually higher despite good US data, investors eye Jan’s high. Spot GOLD rose $4 in the Thursday session following the DOLLAR Index rather than the Dollar-Yen as US T-Yields rose by seven basis points. Market participants look forward to the headline number for short-term gains.
  • US Indexes – DJ rose by 0.14%, S&P 500 fell by 0.06%.
  • European Indexes – UK 100 trades 0.04% lower, DE 30 -2.35%.
  • Asian Indexes – ASX 200 rose by 0.50%, Nikkei 225 plummeted by 0.90%, Hang Seng trades 0.05% lower.
  • US Equities – Amazon plunged by 4.20%, Twitter soared by 5.15%.
