Forex Weekly Outlook for Major Pairs

The major pairs are where most Forex traders trade the market. In the Forex Weekly Outlook we take a look at the most popular pairs analyzing price action, news events and/or risk off scenarios that could play a role in market movement, and a series of VantagePoint charts that best present information that can assist traders in determining where the market may move in the week ahead.

Euro/U.S. Dollar (EUR/USD)

Key Levels and market movement:

This pair is unable to clear the 1.2550 area. It must break through this level to move any higher, but for now, the pair is basically range trading. But for now, the PRSI is showing that the EUR/USD pair is losing momentum and slipping below that key 60 level.

What do the indicators say?

The key VantagePoint level is at 1.2381 and the PRSI is at 58.1.

U.S. Dollar/Swiss Franc (USD/CHF)

Key Levels and market movement:

We’re looking for buyers to come into this pair. It is slowly recovering from a bigger move to the downside over the last few months. The indicators in VantagePoint aren’t showing a bigger move to the downside so this pair has the opportunity to recover. But traders need to watch this pair carefully because it is heavily influenced by political jitters on both sides of the aisle.

What do the indicators say?

The key VantagePoint level is at .9313 and the PRSI is at 27.6.

British Pound/U.S. Dollar (GBP/USD)

Key Levels and market movement:

The pair continues to fail from that upper trend line that’s been drawn. The pair is struggling to hold above that key VantagePoint level of 1.3955 and struggling to hold a bullish bias. While the Neural Index is positive, the PRSI is failing at the 60 level.

What do the indicators say?

The key VantagePoint level is at 1.3978 and the PRSI is at 56.7.

U.S. Dollar/Japanese Yen (USD/JPY)

Key Levels and market movement:

Nothing seems to be saving this pair. It keeps falling week after week. Japan and China are settling their own trade differences and it’s affecting this pair heavily. Traders need to take extreme caution with this pair until it can find its bottom and stabilize.

What do the indicators say?

The key VantagePoint level is at 107.54 and the PRSI is at 20.8.
