Trading Forecast for NZDUSD, CADJPY, Gold Price & More

Trading Forecast for NZDUSD, CADJPY, Gold Price & More

Paul Robinson, Strategist

With volatility generally low opportunities aren’t in abundance but that doesn’t mean there are still set-ups to take advantage of. NZDUSD is trading at a big level of resistance again after reversing off from there last week, looking for lower prices from here. CADJPY broke a head-and-shoulders pattern and is testing the neckline of the pattern. Gold continues to ride neatly within the confines of a bullish channel; stay within and outlook neutral to bullish, break outside and sellers may show up again in earnest.

Technical Highlights:

  • NZDUSD at resistance within macro-wedge
  • CADJPY testing neckline of H&S pattern
  • Gold channel is well-defined, provides solid guide

Looking for forecasts and educational content? The DailyFX Trading Guides page offers a plethora of resources for traders of all experience levels.

NZDUSD at resistance within macro-wedge

Kiwi posted a strong reversal candle last week at the top-side trend-line of a broad macro-wedge. The wedge has been developing for months and puts NZDUSD on breakout alert with the apex of the pattern just around the corner. It should break inside the next 2-4 weeks.

For now, though, the risk is that early week strength back towards the reversal at resistance fades and another down-move develops. As long as NZDUSD doesn’t close above last week’s high at 6938 the outlook will remain neutral to negative.

CADJPY testing neckline of H&S pattern

On Friday, CADJPY broke the neckline of a head-and-shoulders pattern, a set-up we looked at in a webinar to conclude the week. We are seeing a thorough testing of the neckline develop right now, and on that a rejection back lower could soon have CADJPY rolling back downhill. The size of the formation suggests a move towards the 80-mark or worse is in the cards.

Gold channel is well-defined, provides solid guide

Gold continues to carve out an impressive channel which traders on both sides of the tape can use as a strong reference. It’s well-defined enough that even turning points on the hourly time-frame are pretty precise. Bottom line with this structure is this – stay inside and the trading bias will remain neutral to bullish, trade outside and the down-move off last month’s high could grow legs again. The overlapping price action suggests it’s a corrective move higher, but we’ll need to see the currently positive tone broken first before running with an outright bearish bias.
