Trading Support and Resistance

|

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:

Let’s 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:

Weekly Forecast 4th August 2019

Last week, we made no weekly forecast. We make no forecast again this week, as our weekly forecasts are based upon fading strong counter-trend movements, and there were no such movements over the past week.

The Forex market has been making strong price moves, with over 70% of the important currency pairs and crosses moved by more than 1% in value over the past week. Volatility is likely to be similar over the coming week, or maybe a little lower.

Last week was dominated by relative strength in the New Zealand Dollar, and relative weakness in the British Pound.
