This week we’ll begin with our monthly and weekly forecasts of the currency pairs worth watching. The first part of our forecast is based upon our research of the past 16 years of Forex prices, which show that the following methodologies have all produced profitable results:
· Assuming that trends are usually ready to reverse after 12 months.
· Trading against very strong counter-trend movements by currency pairs made during the previous week.
Let’s take a look at the relevant data of currency price changes and interest rates to date, which we compiled using a trade-weighted index of the major global currencies:
Monthly Forecast November 2017
Weekly Forecast 26th November 2017
Last week, we made no forecast, as there were no strong counter-trend movements.
This week, we again make no forecast, as there were again no strong counter-trend movements.
This week has been dominated by relative strength in the Euro, and relative weakness in the U.S. Dollar.
Volatility was must lower, with only 4% of the major or minor currency pairs changing in value by more than 1%. Volatility is likely to be higher over this coming week. You can trade our forecasts in a real or demo Forex brokerage account.
Key Support/Resistance Levels for Popular Pairs
We teach that trades should be entered and exited at or very close to key support and resistance levels. There are certain key support and resistance levels that should be watched on the more popular currency pairs this week, which might result in either reversals or breakouts:
Let’s see how trading one of these key pairs last week off key support and resistance levels could have worked out:
We had expected the levels at 0.7572 and 0.7635 might act as resistance (as well as 0.7609), as they had acted previously as both support and resistance. Note how these “flipping” levels can work well. The H1 chart below shows how both of these levels, when first hit, produced attractive bearish pin candlesticks. These short trade would each have produced acceptable maximum reward to risk ratios of at least 2 to 1 if profit had been taken optimally.
