    USD/CAD: general analysis

    Current trend

    The USD/CAD pair continues growing amid a fall in oil prices, which were pressured by data on US crude oil stocks. At the same time, it should be noted that though Canada’s economy showed a strong growth in July, it had no influence on dynamics in the pair. At present, further upward movement seems a likelier scenario amid expectations that the Fed will soon raise its interest rates.
    Today the US Dollar can gain support in case of strong data for August on the ISM Manufacturing PMI and ISM Prices Paid.

    Support and resistance

    Bollinger Bands on the 4-hour chart is directed up while the price range is showing no changes. MACD is in the positive zone, its volumes remain high. Stochastic is approaching the border of the oversold zone.
    According to the indicators, long positions seem preferable.
    Support levels: 1.3090, 1.3076, 1.3049, 1.3028, 1.3001.
    Resistance levels: 1.3128, 1.3140, 1.3151, 1.3176, 1.3198.

    Trading tips

    Long positions can be opened from the current level with targets at 1.3140, 1.3150 and stop-loss at 1.3090. Validity – 1-3 days.
    Short Long positions can be opened from the level of 1.3155 with the target at 1.3100 and stop-loss at 1.3175. Validity – 2-4 days.

    EUR/USD: general review

    Current trend

    Yesterday the pair substantially grew amid weakening in the US Dollar, which was pressured by poor data on the ISM Manufacturing PMI from the US. In August, the index fell from 52.6 points to 49.4 points while economists predicted a fall to only 52.0 points.

    Today extra attention needs to be paid to data on the US labour market. According to forecasts, the Unemployment Rate will fall to 4.8% while the Nonfarm Payrolls will amount to 180 thousands. Data below forecasts might significantly pressure the Dollar, as it would decrease the chances of an interest rate hike by the Fed in September.
    High volatility is expected on the market. Traders should refrain from opening new positions before the publication.

    Support and resistance

    The nearest support level: 1.1126.
    The nearest resistance level: 1.1207.

    Trading tips

    Long positions can be opened from the level of 1.1207 with the target at 1.1255 and stop-loss at 1.1190.

    EUR/USD: pair trades mixed

    Current trend

    The Euro is trying to grow during the morning session after sharp fluctuations last Friday amid the publication of data on the US labour market.
    The US Labour Department reported nonfarm payrolls rose by 151 000 jobs in August, following a gain of 275 000 in July, and against market consensus of 180 000. The unemployment rate remained at 4.9% while a decline to 4.8% was expected.

    Despite relatively weak data, market reactions were generally positive. The US economy is close to full employment, and a certain slowdown in hiring is a quite natural tendency. It should be noted that the report
    had just a slight influence on assessments of rate hike chances. Markets see a 21% likelihood that the Fed would raise rates in September and a 50.6% probability of a hike in December.

    Support and resistance

    Bollinger Bands on the daily chart is falling while the price range is widening actively. MACD is keeping a weak sell signal and trying to consolidate below the zero line. Stochastic has left the oversold zone.
    The indicators recommend waiting for clearer trading signals.

    Support levels: 1.1148 (2 September low), 1.1130, 1.1122 (31 August low), 1.1100, 1.1083, 1.1070 (9 August low), 1.1045 (5 August low).
    Resistance levels: 1.1171, 1.1200, 1.1233, 1.1270 (26 August level), 1.1300, 1.1321, 1.1365 (18 August high).

    Trading tips

    Long positions can be opened after the reversal and breakout of the level of 1.1171 with targets at 1.1233, 1.1270 and stop-loss at 1.1122. Validity – 2-4 days.
    Short positions can be opened after the breakdown of the level of 1.1130 with targets at 1.1083, 1.1070, 1.1045 and stop-loss at 1.1200. Validity – 2-4 days.

    GBP/USD: general review

    Current trend

    The pair continues growing amid positive macroeconomic statistics from the UK. The Markit Services PMI showed a significant increase from 47.4 to 52.9 points, against forecasted 50.0 points. In addition, the US Dollar remains under pressure after Friday’s publication of the labour market report that did not match the expectations.
    Today pair’s dynamics can be affected by data on the ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI from the US. A forecasted increase in the index could break current upward tendency. Otherwise, the pair might consolidate above the level of 1.3400.

    On the 4-hour chart, the pair is testing the level of 1.3340. Bollinger Bands is directed up while the price range is narrowing, suggesting the possibility of a trend change.
