Daily Forex Preview - 12/11

November 12, 2014

Yesterday’s trading session was quiet with lack of fundamentals and the North American session closed on account of Veteran’s day. However, the Yen pairs were the news makers as the currency weakened considerably on rumors of Japanese Premier Shinzo Abe calling for snap elections in December and speculation of a delay to the proposed sales tax hike according to news reports from a local news outlet.

The Yen turned around this morning as Japan’s Chief Cabinet Minister Yoshihide Suga said that they were not preparing for any elections and neither was there any proposal to delay the sales tax hike.

Late last night, the RBNZ released its financial stability report. The Kiwi Dollar managed to strengthen as the report served to remind that markets of the tightening cycle and that the RBNZ was prepared to raise interest rates when necessary. Governor Wheeler however did mention that the Kiwi dollar was unjustifiably high and future declines will be based on significant appreciation of the US Dollar.

EURUSD managed to close higher in a turnaround towards the US session, forming a higher low. The pair now trades as a critical level as seen from the above charts, in what looks to be shaping out to be a falling wedge pattern with a potential to the upside. However, resistance near 1.2527 needs to be cleared to aim for further upside gains. Alternatively, a close below the daily support level 1 at 1.2411 is required for the EURUSD to position itself for more declines.

USDJPY Daily Pivots

While the Yen weakened yesterday’s today’s news seems to have breathed some life in the Yen. In the above chart, we notice the minor trend line being broken and retested which if validated by a close below today’s pivot could see USDJPY decline towards the daily support 1 level at 114.91. The risks however come from the fact that the latest price action is forming a bullish flag pattern, which itself could be invalidated on a decline to 114.91. Alternatively, a rally above 115.9 region could see further upside gains on the cards for USDJPY.

GBPUSD Daily Pivots

GBPUSD’s price action is somewhat akin to that of the EURUSD but with the key risks coming from today’s unemployment data and the BoE inflation hearing. Key resistance at 1.6 levels will have to be cleared for any possibility of further upside gains, while a close below the daily support level 1 at 1.5835 is essential to pave way for declines towards the target of 1.574.
