Daily Forex Forecast August 14, 2017

EURUSD:

Expectation: Bullish to neutral

Target: 1.1910

Recommendation: Buy, with a target of 1.1910

Last week, the EURUSD pair moved lower initially and hit a low of 1.1688 but later moved up and closed at 1.1822. Trend analysis indicates that this pair will remain bullish in the near term and the price should soon close above the 1.1850 to 1.1910 resistance levels. Currently, the 1.1750 point is the immediate support level for this pair. If the price drops below this level (and closes below it), then we can expect the bearish trend to resume and price to drop further and test the 1.1650 levels. The 1.1910 mark is a resistance level for this pair. If the price crosses this resistance level and closes above it, then the bullish trend will strengthen and price could test the 1.2000 resistance levels. You can aim to buy with a target of 1.1910.

Recommendation: Buy, with a target of 1.3125

Looking at the trend lines, it is clear that this pair is currently in a bullish to neutral phase. This pair has a support at the 1.2930 region. If the price drops below this level (and closes below it), then we can expect the trend to turn strongly bearish and price to drop further and test the 1.2865 levels. If price crosses the 1.2930 levels, then you can sell with a target of 1.2865. Trend analysis indicates that this pair currently has a resistance area at the 1.3050 levels.

The USDJPY moved lower last week. Trend analysis indicates that this pair is likely to remain bearish or range bound in the near term and could test the 108.70 support levels. This pair has a support around the 108.70 region. If the price closes below this point, then the trend will become strongly bearish, further downward movement would be possible and the 106.75 level could be tested. Currently, the 109.80 to 110.00 area is a resistance level for this pair. If this level is breached and the pair closes above this point, then the trend would become strongly bullish and price could test the 110.50 level again. You can aim to sell with a target of 108.70.
