FOREX Signals for 30 June

Posted: June 30, 2014 in Forex

The EUR/USD pair had a positive session on Friday, breaking the top of the hammer for the Thursday session which of course is a strong buy signal. However, there is a significant amount of resistance just above going all the way to the 1.37 level at the very least, and as a result we are very hesitant to start buying now. We believe that ultimately this market should continue to stay in the consolidation area that we have been in for some time, thereby making it a very difficult market to get overly excited about. We are on the sidelines.
The USD/JPY pair fell during the course of the session on Friday, closing just below the 101.50 level. With that, it appears that the market is probably going to test the support area just below, and we will be looking for some type of supportive candle in order to go along for the short-term trade. We don’t think of that the market will break down here, simply because we have been so sideways for so long. Until we are told otherwise, we have to believe that this market simply stays in this consolidation area.
The GBP/USD pair went back and forth on Friday, essentially going nowhere. However, the one thing that he did do was show the 1.70 level to be supportive yet again, and with that we believe that this market is in fact trying to wind itself up in order to make a move higher. That move higher should get us to the 1.75 level given enough time, thereby creating a market that can be bought on dips going forward. We have absolutely no interest in selling this pair, and we believe that there is a significant amount of support down at the 1.69 handle.
The AUD/USD pair tried to rally during the session on Friday but gave back up most of the gains. With that, the market tested the 0.9450 level, an area that has been very resistant risk lately. Because of this, we feel that the market will more than likely continue to pull back time and time again until we finally can build up enough momentum to break out above the massive resistance. We believe that the resistance goes all the way to the 0.95 handle, so we are not buyers until we break that level or if we get some type of supportive candle below.

Gold prices have been trading below $1300. Expectations remain that stronger U.S. economic data will support the Federal Reserve’s policy of paring back its bullion-friendly stimulus measures despite weak Q1 growth data. Besides, lack of investment demand and soft physical demand also exerted downside pressure on prices. Rising equities in the US and optimism about the US economy also triggered heavy bout of selling. Expectations of rate cuts by the European Central Bank stoked investor appetite for equities.
We expect prices to trade down today on an account of stronger global equities and weak physical demand in Asia.
Taking cues from weakness in gold prices even spot silver prices continued to trade lower last week. Weakness across the base metals complex and strength in the Dollar index were the prime factors for decline of more than 2% in spot silver prices. As the tensions between Ukraine and Russia seem to have intensified as Russia has threatened to cut-off gas supplies to Ukraine as early as Tuesday will act as a positive factor.
Silver prices are expected to trade sideways to lower as the recent bout of selling is expected to continue.
Crude oil is trading higher on NYMEX today. Crude oil fell on Friday as traders took profit at the end of the month, although the American benchmark rose 3% in May; strengthen supply worries and strong gasoline demand in the United States.
OPEC’s oil output has risen to a three-month high in May as increased supplies from Angola and a further gain in exports from southern Iraq outweighed worsening unrest in Libya. Oil exports from Iraq rose by 8% in May and a new floating terminal was inaugurated that will expand shipping capacity from the country’s southern ports by 800,000 bpd.
Venezuela will appeal an arbitration ruling allowing refiner Phillips 66 to acquire state oil company PDVSA’s 50% stake in a delayed coking unit at the Sweeny refinery.
In Libya, the crude output still remains a question mark as production at major oilfields are still at halt raising concerns on the supply side. We expect prices to trade higher for the day on account of encouraging factory activity data from major buyer China.
