USD/CAD

USDCAD

Consolidating.

AUD/USD

AUDUSD

Declining again.

  • AUD/USD is going lower for the sixth consecutive sessions. The pair has broken hourly support at 0.7017 (10/11/2015 low) which invalidates the medium-term upside momentum. Hourly resistance is given at 0.7328 (31/12/2015 high). Expected to monitor support at 0.6893 (06/09/2015 low).

  • In the long-term, we are waiting for further signs that the current downtrend is ending. Key supports stand at 0.6009 (31/10/2008 low) . A break of the key resistance at 0.8295 (15/01/2015 high) is needed to invalidate our long-term bearish view. In addition, we still note that the pair remains well below the 200-dma which confirms selling pressures.

 

EUR/CHF

EURCHF

Moving sideways.

  • EUR/CHF is trading mixed. Hourly support lies at 1.0733 (28/08/2015 low) and hourly resistance can be found at 1.0956 (29/09/2015 high). Expected to show further decline around 1.0800.

  • In the longer term, the technical structure remains negative as long as prices remain below the resistance at 1.1002 (02/09/2011 low). The ECB's QE programme is likely to cause persistent selling pressures on the euro, which should weigh on EUR/CHF. Supports can be found at 1.0184 (28/01/2015 low) and 1.0082 (27/01/2015 low).

 

EUR/JPY

EURJPY

Bouncing back.

  • In the longer term, the technical structure validates a medium-term succession of lower highs and lower lows. As a result, the resistance at 149.78 (08/12/2014 high) has likely marked the end of the rise that started in July 2012. Key supports stand at 124.97 (13/06/2013 low) and 118.73 (25/02/2013 low). A key resistance can be found at 141.06 (04/06/2015 high).

Sharp increase.

  • EUR/GBP's bullish momentum has reborn Hourly resistance lies 0.7424 (intraday high) has been broken and hourly support given at 0.7350 (25/12/2015 low) is definitely a strong level. Expected to monitor again support at 0.7350.

GOLD (in USD)

Gold

Consolidating.

  • In the long-term, the underlying downtrend (see declining channel) continues to favour a bearish bias. A break of the resistance at 1223 is needed to suggest something more than a temporary rebound. A major support can be found at 1045 (05/02/2010 low).

 

SILVER (in USD)

Silver

Back to high volatility

  • Silver keeps riding the uptrend channel. Strong support lies at 13.51 (19/08/2009 low). Hourly resistance at 14.64 is approaching but still seems far. The overall technical structure (high volatility) is positive and silver is now expected to keep increasing.

  • In the long-term, the break of the major support area between 18.64 (30/05/2014 low) and 18.22 (28/06/2013 low) confirms an underlying downtrend. Strong support can be found at 11.75 (20/04/2009). A key resistance stands at 18.89 (16/09/2014 high).

 

Crude Oil (in USD)

Crude Oil

Consolidating.

  • Crude oil consolidates. The medium-term technical structure remains clearly negative in a context of oil oversupply. Oil is expected to show continued weakness.

  • In the long-term, crude oil has not shown signs of recovery. Strong support lies at 37.75 (24/08/2015) has been broken and 32.40 (18/08/2015 low) is now on target. Nonetheless, crude oil is holding way below its 200-Day Moving Average (setting up at 50). An very unlikely break of the resistance at 60.72 (05/07/2015) would confirm an underlying uptrend.
