First, a review of last week’s forecast:
- the majority of experts (↑ – 69%, → – 12%, ↓ – 19%) predicted a stable rise for EUR/US. The technical indicators on the H4 timeframe concurred. However, the systems of graphical analysis drew a downward rebound to the level of resistance at 1.1000. The rebound did happen, though not as strong as expected – the pair rolled down by 100 points and then, validating the experts’ opinion, moved upwards again reaching the strong resistance level of 1.1280-1.1300;
- the forecast for the GBP/USD pair was fulfilled 100%. It was predicted that despite the obvious gravitation towards the 1.5000 mark, the pair would spend the whole week in a sideways trend, which happened. The pair ended up where it had started the week – around 1.5270;
- the forecast for USD/JPY was also 100% accurate. It was expected that when assailing the height of 126.00, the pair would stage charge after charge, pushing off the support around 123.60. There were three such charges the previous week, and only on Friday did the pair break through the Japanese defence line at 124.60, almost reaching the target after a powerful surge;
- nothing original was predicted for the USD/CHF pair – an inverse correlation with EUR/USD and two possible scenarios: the first being a rebound from 0.9400 upwards, the alternative being a fall to 0.9280. The pair managed to execute both scenarios, after which it returned to the start mark of 0.9400.
Now regarding the forecast for the coming week. Generalizing the opinions of 35 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 said:
- an absolute majority of the experts and the indicators (61%) predict that EUR/USD will complete Friday’s correction and continue to move up to 1.1500. It should be noted, however, that the very same experts agree that in July-August the pair ought to move back down to at least 1.0400-1.0500. According to graphical analysis, on Monday the pair should grow to the level of 1.1190 and then dash downwards to 1.1000;
- the clash between the analysts and the indicators regarding the future of GBP/USD continues. Most of the former (77%) are for the pair’s rise while the latter (100%) are for its fall. Considering that last week the pair was in a sideways trend, it can be assumed that this week the pair will be fluctuating around the axis of 1.5270, remaining in a 1.5150-1.5450 range. On a larger timeframe, the pair can be expected to return to the area of 1.5000;
- last Friday, USD/JPY already arrived at the level of June 2007, and the next record high will be 135.00 where the pair was in the winter of 2002. However, for this purpose the pair must first take hold around 126.00. The technical indicators offer two possible Pivot Points – 124.30 and 125.40. It seems more probable that 124.30 will become a support level for USD/JPY, leaning on which the bulls will push the pair upwards to the area of 126.70-127.40;
- 70% of the experts, 61% of the H4 indicators as well as the systems of graphical analysis predict that USD/CHF will rise to at least 0.9530. The main support level should be at 0.9340, to which the pair may descend at the start of the week in order to shoot upwards then.
