    NZD/USD: review and forecast

    Current trend
    Since the beginning of the week, the NZD/USD pair has been trading within a narrow range. Market participants are waiting for new drivers which will determine further dynamics in the pair. However, as no macroeconomic releases are due in New Zealand and not so much important data is expected to be released in the US, the pair is likely to keep trading flat.

    Support and resistance
    Technical indicators suggest the pair tends to trade within the sideways range. Bollinger Bands are narrowing down while the price remains near the middle MA. Later, a slight decline is possible after which a correction can be expected.
    Support levels: 0.6730, 0.6630, 0.6610.
    Resistance levels: 0.6795, 0.6860.

    Trading tips
    Short positions can be opened at the current level with the target at 0.6730 and stop-loss at 0.6795.
    Long positions can be opened above the level of 0.6795 with the target at 0.6860.

    AUD/USD: pair moving sideways

    Current trend
    This week, the AUD/USD pair has been trading within a sideways range of about 100 points (0.7648-0.7550). At present, the Australian currency gains support from a slow growth in commodity prices (CRB index has been has been growing for two months already). Moreover, RBA's Governor Glenn Stevens in his speech delivered to the Australian Securities and Investments Commission said he has a favorable outlook for Australia’s economy. Economic and financial conditions in the country are improving and the Regulator is experienced enough in dealing with difficulties. Nevertheless, these factors have not given enough support for the pair to strengthen to 0.7700.

    Support and resistance
    The pair is likely to remain within the range in the short term. Though technical indicators suggest a fall (MACD histogram is in the positive zone, its volumes are falling; Stochastic lines are directed downward), the pair can start moving down only if it manages to consolidate below the 38.2% Fibonacci fan line and the level of 0.7535. The level of 0.7665 is seen as the key one for the Bulls.
    Support levels: 0.7550, 0.7535, 0.7456 and 0.7391.
    Resistance levels: 0.7648, 0.7665, 0.7700 and 0.7770.

    Trading tips
    At present, positions should be placed within the sideways range. Pending sell orders can be placed at the level of 0.7535 with targets at 0.7456, 0.7391 and stop-loss at 0.7580.

    Long positions can be opened from the level of 0.7600 (middle MA of Bollinger Bands) with the target at 0.7650. Pending buy orders can be placed above the level of 0.7665 with targets at 0.7700, 0.7770 and stop-loss at 0.7620.

    EUR/USD: general review

    Current trend
    The pair continues growing amid weakening in the US Dollar.
    At the same time, data published by Standard & Poor’s ratings services firm showed that the pace of growth of the eurozone economy could be lower than forecasted 1.8%, and reach only 1.5%. To some extent, this is the result of recent terrorist attacks that substantially decreased tourist trips to the Union, while tourism makes up nearly 10% of the EU GDP.

    Support and resistance
    Yesterday the pair retested the resistance level at 1.1375 but failed to overcome it again.
    The nearest support level is at 1.1244.
    The nearest resistance level is at 1.1337.

    Trading tips
    Short positions can be opened from the level of 1.1300 with the target at 1.1247 and stop-loss at 1.1337.
