Analysis:CB Consumer Confidence
The Consumer Confidence measures
the level of consumer confidence in
economic activity. It is a leading
indicator as it can predict the consumer
spending, which is a major part in
the total economic activity. Higher
readings point to higher consumer
optimism. A higher than expected reading
should be taken as positive/bullish
for the USD, while a lower than expected
reading should be taken as
negative/bearish for the USD. The analysts
predict a future reading of
The Euro fluctuated
violently on Friday, breaking both the support &
resistance specified in
the report, but only reaching the target in the case
of the support. After
breaking 1.2860, the Euro reached the first suggested
successfully. When looking at the hourly chart, we find that
has stopped at the bottom of a new rising channel which will
be placed under
our focus for today. The bottom of the channel is at 1.2807,
but after the
strong bounce we seen late Friday, the price built another
support ahead of
the channel bottom at 1.2883. In case we break today's
support (1.2883) we
will drop to test the bottom of the channel at 1.2807 as
a first target. And
if this one is also broke, then the rising channel is
broken, which would
leave the Euro vulnerable to more downside activity,
targeting 1.2731 as a
first & immediate target for this break on the way to
lower targets. On
the other hand, the resistance is at the important 1.2942.
If broken, the
price will resume its bounce from channel bottom, targeting
yet another test
of 1.3026, and may be then 1.3075.

As we have said several
times in last week's reports, signs show that the
possibility of a rising
correction to correct the fall from June 3rd top
89.09 to July 16th low 86.25
is growing. On the top of these signs: the
inverted hammer formation, which
appeared on the daily chart, and the
completed 5-wave move, and further more
what looks to be the corrective
waves (a) & (b) forming in an ideal
manner (please refer to the attached
chart), and wave (c) developing in an
ideal fashion. Therefore, and even
though we are negative about this pair on
the medium term, we should not
neglect these signs which force themselves
upon us for today! Short term
support is at 87.33, and if broken, the price
will resume its drop after a
3-wave correction, targeting 86.72 & 85.84.
Resistance is at 87.67. A break
here indicates that the odds of c
continuation of the correction of the 5
waves down from 92.87 are still
massive. This will target 88.37, then 88.78.
It is worth mentioning that
breaking wave 5 bottom 86.25 even with a few
pips would strongly indicate the
termination of the correction we are
