Get our trading strategies with our monthly & weekly forecasts of currency pairs worth watching using support & resistance for the week of August 23, 2021.
This week we will 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 18 years of Forex prices, which show that the following methodologies have all produced profitable results:
Trading the two currencies that are trending the most strongly over the past 3 months.
Assuming that trends are usually ready to reverse after 12 months.
Trading against very strong weekly counter-trend movements by currency pairs made during the previous week.
Carry Trade: Buying currencies with high interest rates and selling currencies with low interest rates.
Let us 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 August 2021
For the month of August, we made no forecast as there are no clear trends in the Forex market showing very strong momentum.
Weekly Forecast 22nd August 2021
Last week, we made no weekly forecast, as there were no large counter-trend price movements in any important currency pairs or crosses.
We again make no forecast this week.
The Forex market saw a high level of volatility last week, with 59% of all the important currency pairs or crosses moving by more than 1% in value. Volatility is likely to remain high over the coming week but may well be somewhat lower.
Last week was dominated by relative strength in the U.S. dollar, and relative weakness in the Canadian dollar. There is a strong bullish trend in the U.S. dollar which makes the current market environment attractive to traders.
