Fundamental Analysis: Trade
The Trade Balance index will be published tomorrow (Jan 12) in
the US, Britain and Canada.
The Trade Balance index measures the difference
in worth between exported and imported goods (exports minus imports). This is
the largest component of a country's balance of payments.
Export data can
give reflection on the country's growth. Imports provide an indication of
Because foreigners must buy the domestic currency to pay for
the nation's exports, it may have sizable affect on the domestic currency.
higher than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the
currency, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as
negative/bearish for the currency.
Analysts predict a reading of -32.90B for
the USD, -7.10B for the GBP and 0.40B for the CAD.
The Euro broke the resistance specified in Fridayâ€™s report
1.4332, and successfully reached both suggested targets 1.4407 & 1.4485. But
this rising move have bumped into (And slightly surpassed) the trend line which
was the center of our attention all last week, and caused a notable reversal
close to 1.4485. Thus, the Asian session top 1.4531 will be an important
resistance to determine if this line is able to create another reversal, or if
it will be broken this time, letting the price fly. The support is at 1.4485. We
will be waiting for a break of either of them to determine short term trend. IF
the resistance 1.4531 is broken, the Euro will gain a lot of strength, targeting
1.4625, and the important Fibonacci level 1.4678. If the support at 1.4485 is
broken, it would indicate that this line has probably created another reversal
similar to the one we saw last week, ideally targeting 1.4428 & 1.4365.
â€¢ 1.4485: important previous resistance close to last
â€¢ 1.4428: Fibonacci 38.2% for the short term.
Fibonacci 61.8% for the short term.
â€¢ 1.4531: Asian
â€¢ 1.4625: Nov 3rd low.
â€¢ 1.4678: Fibonacci 50% for the
Although it has
reached 93.75, the Dollar-Yen has closed obviously on the negative side, below
the important trend line on the daily charts. The price broke the support
specified in Fridayâ€™s report, and successfully reached the first suggested
target 92.20. We have explained the importance of Fridayâ€™s closing in the last
report, and said that closing above or below 93.35 leads to completely different
readings: a negative one and a positive one. The closing price came clearly
below 93.35 (Fridays close 92.62), which can be read without hesitation as a
negative closing. Today, we will be on the watch for this line which is
currently at 93.11, and we will take a negative bias towards this pair as long
as we are below this most important resistance for the time being. Support is at
92.20 (and as this report is being prepared we are trading only pips above it).
Breaking the resistance 93.11 will be surprising to us, and will give the needed
strength to reach areas beyond 94, most important of which are 94.05 &
94.62. While a break of the support 92.20 would open the way to a drop towards
91.51 & 90.76.
â€¢ 92.20: Fibonacci 61.8% for the
â€¢ 91.51: obvious resistance area on the hourly chart.
Fibonacci 61.8% for the whole rise from 88.91 to
â€¢ 93.11: the falling trend line from 101.43
on the daily charts.
â€¢ 94.05: Aug 28th high.
â€¢ 94.62: Jan 6th 2008
