EURUSD analysis for 14/11/2017:
After a sleepy Monday, it was time for a real canon of events. As many as 11 members of the leading central banks will take the floor today with the main attention of the ECB, Fed, BoE and BoJ presidents. Unplanned comments are always possible, so it is worth to pay attention to sudden turnarounds. In addition, emotions can provide GDP from Euroland, CPI from Great Britain, ZEW from Germany and PPI from the USA.Plenty of the data from the Eurozone might impact the price of EUR/USD today.
Let’s now take a look at the EUR/USD technical picture at the H4 time frame. The market has managed to break out above the technical resistance at the level of 1.1690 and it looks like it is heading towards the 61% Fibo at the level of 1.1728. There is an important technical resistance zone just below this level, so any breakout higher might be the first clue of a trend reversal. Nevertheless, to continue upward, the market would have to break out above the golden trend line as well, so it will be a tough nut to crack for the bulls.
Market Snapshot: NZD/USD sell-off continues
The price of NZD/USD failed to break out above the golden trend line resistance at the level of 0.6970 and it is being sold since then. The technical support at the level of 0.6882 had been violated already and now the price is getting closer to the next support at the level of 0.6814. Overall, the downtrend continues.
Market Snapshot: Crude Oil consolidating the gains
The price of Crude Oil is now willing to drop towards the technical support at the level of $55.26 yet, instead the market is consolidating the gains between the levels of $56.38 – $57.91.The market is starting to be oversold, but the momentum is cleary pointing to the downside for now, so another leg down might be made to test the level of $55.65 before another bounce will happen. Reversal candlestick formations on a daily time frame chart support the downside bias.
