    Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (February 8 - 12, 2016)

    Dominant bias: Bullish
    This pair was engaged in a smooth bullish run last week, moving upwards 420 pips before the bearish retracement that was seen on Friday (February 5, 2016). The bearish retracement could be taken as a sale in the context of an uptrend, for the uptrend might continue this week. As long as price is above the support line at 1.0950, the bullish bias cannot be threatened. The resistance lines at 1.1250 and 1.1300 are the potential targets for bulls this week.

    Dominant bias: Bearish
    Owing to the perceived weakness in USD, USDCHF dropped 340 pips last week, ending the recent bullish outlook on the market. The support level at 0.9900 was tried, before the current upward bounce, which is, however, shallow.

    The S&P 500 ended the week on key support levels (see chart below) having failed to rally after the positive jobs report. However, USD traders were more impressed, pushing it higher. Money markets slightly increased the chance of rate hikes this year. We now await an update on China’s FX reserves position on Sunday and FOMC Chair Yellen’s view on the situation before the US Congress on Wednesday.

    FX 4 Next Week: Yellen calls the shots

    FX 4 Next Week: Yellen calls the shots
    The market suffered a traumatic week this week, as the moves of the previous week on the back of the Bank of Japan’s shock negative rates move were entirely reversed and then some as the week progressed. Next week will be about whether the US jobs report was sufficiently interesting to shore up the US dollar’s prospects and how Janet Yellen positions the FOMC after all of the turmoil to start this year.

    Friday charts: JPY, European financials, sentiment, US yield curve
    European financial stocks have underperformed the rest of the market during the beginning of 2016. The divergence is large enough to suggest a reasonable market neutral spread-trading opportunity. Elsewhere, despite the Bank of Japan's negativity surprise, the JPY seems intent on not going anywhere - tread carefully! Meanwhile, the US yield curve has flattened, and the 10y-2y spread is lower than at any point since 2008.
