Here’s the market outlook for the week:

Dominant bias: Bearish
From Monday to Wednesday, this pair went downwards, moving below briefly below the support line at 1.0550. Price then rallied above the resistance line at 1.0650, before getting corrected lower on Friday. The outlook on the market is bearish, and further bearish movement is expected this week, as price targets the support lines at 1.0550 (which was tested last week), 1.0500 and 1.0450.

Dominant bias: Bearish
Oddly enough, the current outlook on USDCHF is bearish, just like the outlook on EURUSD. One of the reasons behind this is occasional bouts of stamina in CHF, which sometimes put checks on USDCHF bullish ambitions. The market level at 1.0000 has now become insignificant, since price just goes above and below it at will. For example, price went below it on February 16, only to go above it on February 17. Only a very strong bearish plunge on EURUSD would help push USDCHF upwards considerably.

Dominant bias: Neutral
GBPUSD has been moving sideways for at least, two weeks. The market did nothing noteworthy last week. This directionless movement would soon end, and a strong momentum would rise, pushing price in a clear direction. A closer look at the market shows that bears’ hands are currently stronger than bulls’ hands, and following the ongoing impasse, price could plunge southwards. The outlook on GBP pairs remains bearish.

Dominant bias: Bearish
In the context of a downtrend, price moved upwards from February 9 – 15, and then began to pull back from that day. On February 17, price closed below the demand level at 113.000, leading to a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market. The targets for this week are the demand levels at 112.50, 112.00 and 111.50. This, however, does not rule out a possibility of a strong rally before the end of the month.

Dominant bias: Bearish
This cross is bearish in the long-term and neutral in the short-term. The market consolidated from Monday to Friday and then started moving downwards as it plunged by over 120 pips that day. This is in agreement with the southward movement that was started in the beginning of this month; plus further southward movement is possible. On the other hand, a possibility of a serious rally still remains… on JPY pairs.

This forecast is concluded with the quote below:
