Get our trading strategies with our monthly & weekly forecast of currency pairs worth watching using support & resistance for the week of July 4, 2022.
This week I will begin with my monthly and weekly forecasts of the currency pairs worth watching. The first part of my forecast is based upon my research of the past 20 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 6 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 July 2022
For the month of June, I forecasted that the US Dollar Index would rise in value. It did, by 0.69%, producing a profitable trade.
For the month of July, I forecast that the EUR/USD currency pair and the GBP/USD currency pair will both decline in value.
Weekly Forecast 3rd July 2022
Last week, I made no weekly forecast.
This week, I again make no weekly forecast as last week saw no major counter-trend price movements over the week.
The Forex market saw its level of directional volatility rise last week, with 44% of all the important currency pairs or crosses moving by more than 1% in value. Directional volatility is likely to increase again over this coming week as there are so few major data releases scheduled.
Last week was dominated by relative strength in the Swiss Franc, and relative weakness in the Australian Dollar.

Key Support/Resistance Levels for Popular Pairs
I 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 can be watched on the more popular currency pairs this week.
Key Support / Resistance Levels
Support: 0.6767, 0.6683, 0.6570, 0.6556 Resistance: 0.6848, 0.6915, 0.7000, 0.7038
Support: 1.0350, 1.0300, 1.0300, 1.0250 Resistance: 1.0433, 1.0486, 1.0535, 1.0601
Support: 1.2043, 1.1976, 1.1901, 1.1695 Resistance: 1.2102, 1.2137, 1.2212, 1.2222
Support: 134.92, 134.27, 132.27, 131.00 Resistance: 135.99, 136.17, 136.44, 137.00
Support: 92.00, 91.53, 90.58, 90.30 Resistance: 92.72, 93.42, 94.20, 95.00
Support: 142.12, 141.20, 140.67, 140.00 Resistance: 140.00, 138.26, 136.83, 134.59
Support: 1.2844, 1.2805, 1.2684, 1.2619 Resistance: 1.2953, 1.3025, 1.3127, 1.3179
Support: 0.9574, 0.9532, 0.9498, 0.9438 Resistance: 0.9633, 0.9728, 0.9833, 0.9983
Let us see how trading reversals from two of last week’s key levels could have worked out:
I had expected the level at $1.0601 might function as resistance, as it had previously functioned as both support and resistance. Note how such “flipping” levels can be very reliable reversal points. The H1 chart below shows how the price rejected this level with a bearish pin bar during last Monday’s London/New York overlap, which is typically a great time to be trading Forex. The entry point is marked by the down arrow within the price chart below. This trade has been very profitable so far, achieving a maximum positive risk-reward ratio slightly higher than 9 to 1 based upon the size of the entry candlestick.
EUR/USD Hourly Chart
I had expected the level at 0.9498 might act as support, as it had previously functioned as both support and resistance. Note how such “flipping” levels can be exceptionally reliable reversal points. The H1 chart below shows how the price rejected this level with a very clear bullish reversal – a candlestick which was partly a doji, partly a pin bar – just before last Wednesday’s London/New York overlap, which is typically a great time to be trading Forex. The entry point is marked by the up arrow within the price chart below. This trade has been nicely profitable so far, achieving a maximum positive risk-reward ratio slightly higher than 6 to 1 based upon the size of the entry candlestick.
