    Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (August 15 - 19, 2016)

    Dominant bias: Bullish
    This pair consolidated on Monday and went further upwards on Tuesday. Price moved upwards 130 pips, testing the resistance line at 1.1200, to close above the support line at 1.1150. Bulls might push price further upwards this week; however, there is a possibility of a bearish movement on EURUSD, since EUR could become weak versus other majors, save GBP, which is currently weaker than EUR. The current bullish effort would end once price goes below the support line at 1.1050.

    Dominant bias: Bearish
    There is a “sell” signal on USDCHF, especially in the near-term. There are support levels at 0.9700 and 0.9650, which could be tested this week. Nonetheless, the expected bearish movement on EURUSD might enable USDCHF to stop moving south, and assume a rally that would bring about a Bullish Confirmation Pattern in the market.

    WCU: Saudis lifting oil while gold remains rangebound

    WASDE is the biggest report of the summer: Hansen

    Ole Hansen
    The World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates Report is the most anticipated thing to happen this summer, according to Saxo Bank head of commodity strategy Ole Hansen. It is the first time that the WASDE report will include a survey for expected yields.

    The markets has shown unusual volatility this week and this may indicate consensus among traders, says Hansen.

    He believes that markets may see *fireworks' if the WASDE report differs from the estimates.
