Fundamental Analysis: Trade Balance Index
The US Bureau of Economic Analysis will release the Trade Balance index
report Tomorrow (Dec 10), which measures the difference in worth
between exported and imported goods (exports minus imports).
This is the largest component of the US's balance of payments.
Export data gives a reflection on the US growth. Imports provide an
indication of domestic demand. Because foreigners must buy the domestic
currency to pay for the nation's exports, it may have sizable affect on
Analysts expect tomorrow's Index to remain stable since last month, indicating a defacit of 36.50 Billions Dollars.
The Euro slightly surpassed the resistance 1.4844 before completely
surrendering to the downtrend. It dropped and successfully reached the
first target 1.4724, and came somehow close to the second target 1.4649
(the low until this very moment is 1.4667). In spite of this big drop,
we still have not made it yet to Fibonacci 38.2% for the long term (for
the rise from 1.3747) at 1.4610. Short-term support is at 1.4649, and
breaking it would mean we will be targeting the above mentioned
Fibonacci level first at 1.4610, and then the support area
1.4510/1.4518 that includes several daily bottoms. Short-term
resistance is at the Asian session high 1.4734, breaking it would mean
that the Euro will have a chance to catch a breath after this big drop.
Breaking this resistance will target at least 1.4847, and may be 1.4903
â€¢ 1.4649: Oct 7th low.
â€¢ 1.4610: Fibonacci 38.2% for the long-term (for the rise from 1.374).
â€¢ 1.4510: previous support area that includes several daily lows.
â€¢ 1.4734: Asian session high.
â€¢ 1.4847: Fibonacci 38.2% for the drop from 1.5139
â€¢ 1.4903: Fibonacci 50% for the drop from 1.5139
Dollar-Yen broke the rising trendline from 85.07 at 88.75 and
successfully reached the first target 88.33. Breaking this line
indicates there is a continuation of the downside pressures, that
emerged after Fridayâ€™s top, and if it continues, we will break todayâ€™s
support which is yesterdayâ€™s low 88.16, and would target Fibonacci 50%
at 87.78 first, and may be the most important support for the time
being : Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole up-move from 84.81 at 87.08. But
as we can see from the attached chart, the drop stopped at the moving
average SMA100, which could provide a chance for a bounce back up, in
what could be (at least) a correction for the drop from Fridayâ€™s top.
In this case the price will break intraday resistance at 88.48, and
would ideally target the area that is bordered by Fibonacci 38.2% for
the short-term at 89.15 & Fibonacci 61.8% at 89.76.
â€¢ 88.16: yesterdayâ€™s low.
â€¢ 87.78: Fibonacci 50% for the whole move from 84.81 to 90.75.
â€¢ 87.08: Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole move from 84.81 to 90.75.
â€¢ 88.48: intraday resistance.
â€¢ 89.15: Fibonacci 38.2% for short-term.
â€¢ 89.76: Fibonacci 38.2% for short-term.
