    Dollar bears singing summertime blues
    USD dollar bears are raising a fuss and a holler. They’ve been short all summer just trying to earn a dollar. Then, yesterday, Bank of England's Mark Carney and the Fed's Jerome Powell proved their efforts were in vain.

    Fear not. Markets will be back a panic next week on "renewed" trade fears. I think this is like the 6th time around....

    USDCAD - Key average to attract sellers
    Although bought at higher levels yesterday, price action was muted in USDCAD. The market tested the 13 day mvg avg tentatively but failed to breach that important point. It is that factor combined with the underlying negative bias highlighted in this week's report that keeps our technical focus on the downside.

    EURGBP - Average supports further gains
    In line with this week's bullish call, and on the back of UK news, early downside was sharply reversed yesterday. Buying interest was seen below the 13 day line with demand accelerating in the latter part of the day to take EURGBP to the most positive levels traded for 4 months. Those extremes were also not maintained and net gains were only minor into the close. So caution needs to be applied to today’s analysis but with the underlying bias still recognised as bullish we look for gains to grow..

    USDCHF - Bearish Evening Star points lower
    Yesterday's bearish call – after Monday’s failure at a daily Marabuzo line – had some modest success. But trading was quiet. USDCHF fluctuated around the Marabuzo line and the 13 day mvg avg with all trading confined tightly within the preceding day’s range. So immediate signals for sentiment cannot be strong but with the Bearish Evening Star pattern in the background we continue to look lower.
    Sell at .9920 and .9952

    EURUSD - Bullish Morning Star dominates background.
    The market failed to build upon the Bullish Morning Star pattern that ended last week yesterday. In fact, the negative reaction to Friday’s gains took EURUSD back to test the 13 day line and Friday’s Marabuzo line. Those points held, on a closing basis and so, despite net losses, our intraday technical studies are assessed as mildly positive.

    GBPUSD - Capped by Key Average, points lower
    Contrary to yesterday's forecast, Monday’s failure at the 13 day line proved more important than the day’s downside rejection. So, trading Tuesday was dominated by a setback from that average – although the resulting downside was also limited, by Thursday’s Marabuzo line. But although this does add a note of caution our studies are assessed as bearish.
    We look to Sell in the 1.3220/25 area and also at 1.3245

    EURUSD - Temporary rally to extend
    Two of yesterday's downside targets were met as sellers dominated the early part of Thursday. But those new, marginal, 10 month lows were firmly rejected in the 2nd half of the day and modest gains were posted into the close. The proximity of the 13 day line is a concern but the bounce does leave intraday studies positive.
    We look to Buy in the 1.1620/25 area and any 1.1590 dip
