ForexPros Daily Analysis September 08, 2010
The Euro fell heavily during yesterdayâ€™s Asian session, then it resumed
the drop during the European session. After stopping just below the
enormous resistance we talked about in Mondayâ€™s report 1.2920 (Mondayâ€™s
high was 1.2916), we saw the Euro fall, breaking yesterdayâ€™s support
1.2777 and successfully reached the first suggested target at 1.2690.
With this drop, the price has broken 3 critical levels at once: 1. the
rising trend line from Aug 31st (which was broken at 1.2860), 2. the
falling trend line from Sep 1st top and 3. the massive support at
1.2777. This has shifted the short & medium termsâ€™ technical outlook
to the negative territory! But on the other hand, after the big drop,
chances of seeing a correction before resuming the journey south are
massive. The ideal target area for a short term correction is from
1.2767 to 1.2824. Therefore, todayâ€™s best strategy may be selling if the
price rebounds to this area. Short term resistance is at 1.2824, we do
not expect it to be broken today. But if it is broken, we will jump to
1.2912 & 1.2972. Support is at 1.2698, and a break here would target
1.2627 and may be at a later time 1.2522.
â€˘ 1.2698: obvious & attractive horizontal support on intraday
â€˘ 1.2627: Aug 31st low.
â€˘ 1.2522: Jul 13th low.
â€˘ 1.2824: Fibonacci 61.8% for the drop from Mondayâ€™s high.
â€˘ 1.2912: the retest level for the rising trend line from Aug 31st low
on the hourly chart.
â€˘ 1.2972: the top of the rising trend channel on the hourly chart.
The Dollar/Yen dropped to 83.33, a new 15-year low! The latest drop came
in the midst of the disappointment in the BoJ, which after a 2-day
meeting, announced that it will not do anything at the moment to deal
with the strong Yen. We have recently adjusted the falling trend line on
the hourly chart to include Fridayâ€™s jump. We still believe in USD/JPY
weakness, and we believe it will travel south. Only a break of this
line in specific will change our minds. This line is currently running
at 85.10 (please refer to the attached chart). To keep trading below it,
indicates more downside activity, especially after the BoJ disappointed
again yesterday, as the â€śJapsâ€ť said once again they are watching
closely, but they did nothing! The market has had it with these
comments, and now the Japanese authorities should buy tickets to the
â€śYen Showâ€ť, and see what it will do to the Dollar & the Euro! Short
term support is at 83.41, and if broken, we will be on the way to our
long-awaited target at 82.25, then we will see the psychological level
at 80.00. On the other hand, the above mentioned trend line is at 85.10,
and Fibonacci 61.8% short term is at 84.49. If the latter is broken, we
will target former. And if this one is also broken, the Dollar will be
violent to us all, as it will shoot up to 86.25.
â€˘ 83.41: important intraday level.
â€˘ 82.25: the falling trend line on the weekly chart, combining the
monthly lows of Dec 2008, Jan & Nov 2009.
â€˘ 80.00: psychological level.
â€˘ 84.49: Fibonacci 61.8% for the short term.
â€˘ 85.10: the falling trend line from June 4th top on the hourly chart
â€˘ 86.25: Jul 16th bottom.
The Pound dropped on Monday, from the very same area which stopped it on
Sep 1st, the all important resistance 1.5480/90, and this drop reached
1.5295 yesterday. Then, the price jumped for more than 100 pips so far.
This bounce or short term uptrend found a supporting trend lien which is
currently at 1.5374. We expect the Dollar to try and break this level,
to continue its rebound from the gigantic resistance 1.5490. If it
manages to do so, we will be in for another episode of the drop series,
similar to what we have seen on Monday. This will target 1.5262 at the
very least, and at a later time 1.5151. On the other hand, the most
important resistance is 1.5441. We do not exaggerate when we say that
this level is the single most important one in determining the short
term direction. If broken, the Pound will refuse to give up to our
negative outlook, and will break free, targeting the interesting areas
above 1.55, most interesting of them in our eyes are 1.5507 &
â€˘ 1.5374: the rising trend line from yesterdayâ€™s low on intraday charts.
â€˘ 1.5262: Jul 5th high.
â€˘ 1.5151: the rising trend line from Fridayâ€™s low on intraday charts.
â€˘ 1.5441: the top of the rising trend channel on the hourly chart.
â€˘ 1.5507: Aug 19th low.
â€˘ 1.5596: Aug 16th low.
