    IBEX forecast for the week of April 28, 2014, Technical Analysis

    IBEX forecast for the week of April 28, 2014, Technical Analysis

    The IBEX tried to rally during the week, but as you can see found enough trouble just above the €10,500 level to pull things back down and form a shooting star. The shooting star suggests that the market could pull back from here overall, and as a result we are on the sidelines. We are actually looking for support somewhere near the €10,000 level, and if we get the right supportive candle, we are more than willing to buy this market. We would also do the same if we break the top of the shooting star from this past week as it would show a significant break up momentum.

    EUR/USD forecast for the week of April 28, 2014, Technical Analysis

    EUR/USD forecast for the week of April 28, 2014, Technical Analysis

    For the second week in a row, the EUR/USD pair fell, but bounced enough to form a small hammer. With that being the case, we believe that this market will continue to grind sideways, and as a result this market looks as if it is not ready to do anything at the moment. Because of this, we are not interested in a longer-term trade in the EUR/USD pair, but do recognize that there is a potential uptrend line coming soon, so buying is possible, but not at this moment in time.

    NZD/USD forecast for the week of April 28, 2014, Technical Analysis

    NZD/USD forecast for the week of April 28, 2014, Technical Analysis

    The NZD/USD pair went back and forth during the course of the week, but eventually changed very little. The market looks as if it’s still well supported at the 0.85 handle, and as a result we feel that this market will more than likely find buyers in the general vicinity. Going forward, we fully anticipate that this market will try to get to the 0.90 handle, and we do not have the right supportive candle to get involved. However, if we break down below the 0.85 handle, we think this market will more than likely head to the 0.83 level.

    USD/CAD forecast for the week of April 28, 2014, Technical Analysis

    USD/CAD forecast for the week of April 28, 2014, Technical Analysis

    The USD/CAD pair continue to go higher during the week, but as you can see didn’t have much of a range. At this moment time, we believe that this market will continue to the 1.13 level, but it may take it’s time to get there. With that being the case, we feel that this market can only be bought, and as far as selling is concerned it’s almost impossible based upon the supportive hammer from two weeks ago. If we can get above the 1.13 level, we feel that the market goes to the 1.15 over time.

    USD/JPY forecast for the week of April 28, 2014, Technical Analysis

    USD/JPY forecast for the week of April 28, 2014, Technical Analysis

    The USD/JPY pair fell during the course of the week, but as you can see had a very small trading range. Because of this, we feel that this market is still stuck in the consolidation area, and as a result we really don’t have much of an opinion at the moment. However, you can see that there is an uptrend line that we are approaching, therefore we are looking for a supportive candle in order to start buying as we think the market will continue to try and reach the 103 level, followed by the 105 level given enough time. Selling is not an option.

    Forex - Weekly outlook: April 28 - May 2

    Forex - Weekly outlook: April 28 - May 2

    The dollar ended the week lower against the safe haven yen and Swiss franc on Friday as fresh tensions over hostilities in eastern Ukraine underpinned safe haven demand.

    USD/JPY touched one-week lows of 101.96 on Friday before settling at 102.18, ending the week down 0.48%. USD/CHF ended Friday’s session at 0.8814 after falling to lows of 0.8803 earlier and ended the week down 0.42%.

    Concerns over the conflict between Russian and Ukraine escalated on Friday after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry warned that Washington was ready to step up sanctions on Russia. The West is accusing Russia of leading a separatist revolt in eastern Ukraine after it annexed Crimea last month.

    The yen held gains despite data on Friday showing that Japanese inflation remained unchanged for a third successive month in April. The weak data fuelled expectations that the Bank of Japan will implement a fresh round of monetary stimulus this year, which would weigh on the yen.

    Elsewhere, the euro was flat against the dollar on Friday, with EUR/USD settling at 1.3833. For the week, the pair rose 0.30%.

    The euro’s gains were held in check after European Central Bank President Mario Draghi reiterated warnings on Thursday that the strong euro could trigger further monetary easing. He also said the ECB could launch a "broad-based" asset purchase program if the medium-term inflation outlook deteriorated.

    In the U.S., data on Friday showed that consumer confidence rose to a nine-month high in April, adding to signs that the economy is improving.

    The University of Michigan reported that its consumer sentiment index came in at 84.1 this month, up from 80 in March and the preliminary reading of 82.6. Analysts had expected the index to rise to 83.0.

    In the week ahead, investors will be focusing on Friday’s U.S. jobs report for April and the outcome of the Federal Reserve’s two-day policy meeting on Wednesday. Wednesday preliminary April inflation report for the euro zone will also be closely watched.

    Ahead of the coming week, Investing.com has compiled a list of these and other significant events likely to affect the markets.

    Forex - NZD/USD weekly outlook: April 28 - May 2

    Forex - NZD/USD weekly outlook: April 28 - May 2

    The New Zealand regained ground against its U.S. counterpart on Friday but held near a three-week low struck in the previous session as traders continued to weigh uncertainty surrounding developments in Ukraine.

    NZD/USD fell to 0.8547 on Thursday, the pair’s lowest since April 4, before subsequently consolidating at 0.8580 by close of trade on Friday, up 0.18% for the day but still 0.11% lower for the week.

    The pair is likely to find support at 0.8531, the low from April 4 and resistance at 0.8636, the high from April 24.

    Concerns over the conflict between Russian and Ukraine escalated on Friday after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry warned that Washington was ready to step up economic sanctions against Russia.

    Meanwhile, ratings agency Standard & Poor’s cut its rating on Russia on Friday, citing the potential for “additional significant outflows” of capital due to escalating hostilities with Ukraine.

    The West is accusing Russia of leading a separatist revolt in eastern Ukraine after it annexed Crimea last month.

    Market players also continued to monitor U.S. data for further indications on the strength of the economy and the future course of monetary policy.

    Data on Friday showed that consumer confidence rose to a nine-month high in April, adding to signs that the economy is improving.

    The University of Michigan reported that its consumer sentiment index came in at 84.1 this month, up from 80 in March and the preliminary reading of 82.6. Analysts had expected the index to rise to 83.0.

    Elsewhere, in New Zealand, the Reserve Bank raised interest rates by 0.25% earlier in the week and increased its growth estimate for the quarter ending in March.

    In a widely expected move, the RBNZ raised its benchmark interest rate to 3.00% from 2.75%.

    The central bank also said that gross domestic product is estimated to have grown 3.5% in the year to March, compared to the previous month's estimate of 3.3%.

    Commenting on the decision, RBNZ Governor Graeme Wheeler said the strong kiwi is helping to contain inflation, though current levels may not be sustainable.

    Data from the Commodities Futures Trading Commission released Friday showed that speculators increased their bullish bets on the New Zealand dollar in the week ending April 22.

    Net longs totaled 20,175 contracts as of last week, compared to net longs of 18,213 contracts in the previous week.

    In the week ahead, investors will be looking ahead to Wednesday’s monetary policy announcement by the Federal Reserve amid speculation the central bank is likely to continue to scale back its stimulus program.

    The U.S. will also release the monthly non-farm payrolls report for April later in the week as well as a preliminary estimate on first quarter economic growth.

    Forex - USD/CAD weekly outlook: April 28 - May 2

    The U.S. dollar pushed higher against the Canadian dollar on Friday as renewed concerns over hostilities between Russia and Ukraine fuelled risk aversion, dampening demand for the Canadian dollar.

    USD/CAD ended Friday’s session at 1.1038, up modestly from Thursday’s close of 1.1019. For the week, the pair eked out a gain of 0.17% in rangebound trade.

    The pair was likely to find support at 1.0999, the low of April 22 and resistance at 1.1075.

    Concerns over the conflict between Russian and Ukraine escalated on Friday after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry warned that Washington was ready to step up economic sanctions against Russia.

    The West is accusing Russia of leading a separatist revolt in eastern Ukraine after it annexed Crimea last month.

    The pair traded in a relatively narrow range all week, with the greenback supported by indications that the U.S. economy is recovering. The loonie, as the Canadian dollar is also known, remained softer as the Bank of Canada’s dovish stance weighed.

    In a speech on Thursday, BoC Governor Stephen Poloz said interest rates will stay low for longer, while inflation will remain below the central bank’s 2% target for at least another two years.

    In the U.S., data on Friday showed that consumer confidence rose to a nine-month high in April, adding to signs that the economy is improving.

    The University of Michigan reported that its consumer sentiment index came in at 84.1 this month, up from 80 in March and the preliminary reading of 82.6. Analysts had expected the index to rise to 83.0.
