Trading Themes --
- August U.S. Non-farm Payrolls grew by only 151K in the month, while revisions to the June and July data turned out to be a wash. The street had been expecting a gain of 180K in the month, but importantly, average hourly earning increased a scant 0.12% in the month and hours worked declined.
- There was no smoking gun in the report that should force a rate hike on September 21. In fact this report, taken with the contraction in the ISM Manufacturing PMI should be a cause for caution at the Fed. It would be wiser for the central bank to wait for more data before raising rates. The last thing they should do now is compound their many blunders by trying to save face.
- Monday sees final Service PMIs for a number of economies. For most of the key reports, this will only be revisions to flash reports from about a week ago. The U.K. Service PMI is fresh data and will be watched for corrections to the post-Brexit psychological plunge. The U.S. and Canada are closed Monday for holidays.

Forex Forecast for USD, GBP, JPY and CHF for 05 09 September 2016
First, a review of last weeks forecast:
as for the forecast for EUR/USD, those 50% of experts, which reckoned that, for sure, the pair would try to retest the bottom in the area of 1.1200, turned out to be right. The indicators on H4, which pointed to the south (where the pair did move early week), as well as the ones on D1, which predicted a sideways trend (on Thursday the pair returned to the figures of Monday), turned out to be right. Diverse data on the USA economy at the end of the week put in pie, and thus the pair started to jig up and down, and eventually it wrapped up the week at the level of 1.1150 at that very area, where as far back as last June the long-term sideways trend, keeping EUR/USD within the range of 1.0500 1.1500, had started;
with a small tolerance, the forecast for GBP/USD may be deemed as 100% fulfilled. As anticipated, first the pair went down to the support of 1.3000, but when 50 points were left to reach it, the pair reversed and by the end of Friday it hit the resistance of 1.3320, specified by the experts, approaching the upper boundary of the sideways trend, alongside which it had been moving during the last two months;
giving the forecast for USD/JPY for the week, the analysts indicated the level of 102.20 as the main resistance. As for the pairs rise to the area of 105.00107.00, the pair was supposed to spend at least one to two months to do so. However, it seemingly intends to do so much faster. At least, in the past week alone it surged up by 250 points and, having broken through the resistance of 102.20, it reached the high of 104.30;
the assumption that USD/CHF tended to continue the sideways movement turned out to be correct it finished the week at the same area, it had started from. As a reminder, during the past few months the analysts reckoned that it would strive to consolidate above the level of 0.9800. The pair made that very attempt once again also last week. However the shoot to the north failed to be convincing, and having got over just 85 points, the pair went back to the landmark level of 0.9800.
Forecast for the Upcoming Week:
Summing up the opinions of several dozen analysts from world leading banks and broker companies as well as forecasts based on different methods of technical and graphical analysis, the following can be suggested:
EUR/USD. The opinions of the analysts still differ 40% of them believe that the pair will go up to the resistance of 1.1300. The remaining 60%, backed by the indicators and the graphical analysis on Н4, predict the pairs fall first to the support of 1.1125 and then down to 1.1070. Afterwards, in their view, for a while the pair will be moving in a horizontal channel of 1.1000 1.1160 with the pivot level of 1.1070;
clearly, assessing the prospects for GBP/USD, most indicators (75%) point to the north. As for the analysts, we may outline two scenarios. According to the first view (held by 80% of experts and the graphical analysis on D1), the pair will try to break through the resistance of 1.3370, and, once this happens, try to reach the highs of July 15 and June 29 - 1.3480 and 1.3530, respectively. As for the remaining 20% of analysts and the graphical analysis on H4, they believe that first the pair should plunge to the pivot level of summer sideways channel in the area of 1.3065. Well see which of these scenarios will play out early in the week. With this, note that data on the EU economy, and in particular, the ECB interest and deposit rates decision, may influence the change of the trend. However the mega-regulator is expected to keep them on hold;
giving the forecast for USD/JPY, both the experts and the graphical analysis believe that the pair will be able to get over the resistance within 104.00 104.50, and it will have to move down to the support of 102.30. With this, the graphical analysis on D1 reckons that during the month the pair can go further down to the level of 100.90;
as to the last pair of our review USD/CHF, the forecast here has been without any major changes for weeks a gradual consolidation at the pivot level of 0.9800, which can be clearly seen on D1 and W1 charts. The nearest support will be at the levels of 0.9760 and 0.9735. The resistance will be at 0.9840, 0.9885, 0.9955. With this, if indicators on H4 take a neutral position, then the ones on D1 point up, reflecting the prevalence of bullish trends. The upcoming most significant events worth noting are release of GDP data from Switzerland on Tuesday and data on unemployment rate on Friday.
