UK BoE and ECB publish their rate and monetary easing decisions whilst UK chancellor will deliver his 'Autumn statement'.

Thursday witnesses the UK's BoE MPC publish its interest rate policy decision and the details of its monetary easing policy decision which is expected to remain the same at £375bn. The statement covering the decisions will be of keen interest to investors. The UK's chancellor will give his autumn finance statement. Europe's ECB will publish its rate decision, expected to stay at 0.25%. Canada reports its building permits and the IVEY PMI expected in at 60.2, whilst the USA publishes its preliminary GDP figures expected in at 3.1%, with unemployment claim numbers at circa 322K for the week. The USA publishes its factory orders, predicted down by 0.7%. The yen rallied 0.2 percent to 102.36 versus the dollar late in New York Wednesday, after touching 103.38 Tuesday, the weakest level since May 23rd. The U.S. currency was little changed at $1.3593 per euro. The yen gained 0.1 percent to 139.13 per euro. The U.S. Dollar Index, which tracks the U.S. currency versus its 10 major counterparts, was little changed at 1,020.94, after rising to 1,025.36 yesterday, the highest level since Sept. 13th. The yen rallied for a second day against the dollar as stronger-than-forecast U.S. economic data spurred speculation the Federal Reserve will reduce stimulus that has driven up stocks globally. Bank of Canada policy makers kept their benchmark rate on overnight loans between commercial banks at 1 percent, where it’s been for more than three years, as forecast by all 22 economists in a Bloomberg survey. The Canadian dollar fell 0.3 percent to C$1.0684 versus the greenback, reaching the lowest level since May 2010.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Instrument gained momentum on the upside recently, turning short-term bias to the positive side. Next resistive structure on the way lies at 1.3641 (R1), break here would suggest next intraday targets at 1.3658 (R2) and 1.3674 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the other side, depreciation below the support barrier at 1.3606 (S1) might provide sufficient space for the recovery action. In such case we would suggest next intraday targets at 1.3588 (S2) and then 1.3571 (S3).

Downwards scenario: On the other hand, progress below the initial support level at 1.6364 (S1) might initiate bearish pressure and expose our intraday targets at 1.6342 (S2) and 1.6321 (S3) later on today.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Market sentiment has improved for the bullish oriented traders. Fresh high formed yesterday offers key resistance level at 1.3676 (R1). In case of price appreciation above it our focus would be shifted to the higher targets at 1.3692 (R2) and 1.3709 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the other hand, successful retest of our next support level at 1.3640 (S1) might provide sufficient momentum for the price acceleration towards to interim target at 1.3621 (S2). Final aim for today locates at 1.3599 (S3).

TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bearish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY : High

Upwards scenario: Measures of resistance might be activating when the pair approaches the 1.6340 (R1) mark. Break here would suggest next interim target at 1.6369 (R2) and If the price keeps its momentum we expect an exposure of 1.6392 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the downside our attention is shifted to the immediate support level at 1.6310 (S1). Break here is required to enable bearish forces and expose our intraday targets at 1.6289 (S2) and 1.6266 (S3).

TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bearish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY : High

Upwards scenario: Currently price deviates from its initial downside extension. Clearance of our next resistance level at 102.30 (R1) might trigger corrective action towards to our initial targets at 102.58 (R2) and 102.81 (R3). Downwards scenario: We do expect some pull-backs development on the downside below the support level at 101.93 (S1). Short-term momentum on the negative side might open the way towards to immediate supports at 101.69 (S2) and 101.43 (S3).

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: EUR/USD is entering the retracement stage on the hourly chart however we see potential for further appreciation towards to our targets at 1.3730 (R2) and 1.3748 (R3) if the price manages to overcome key resistance measure at 1.3712 (R1). Downwards scenario: In terms of technical levels, risk of price depreciation is seen below the next support level at 1.3658 (S1). Loss here would suggest to monitor marks at 1.3640 (S2) and 1.3621 (S3) as possible intraday targets.

Upwards scenario: Possible upwards formation is limited now to resistive measure at 1.6360 (R1). A break above it would suggest next intraday target at 1.6392 (R2) and if the price holds its momentum we can expect price increase towards to final resistance at 1.6423 (R3). Downwards scenario: Next challenge on the downside is seen at 1.6318 (S1). Breakthrough of this mark would open way for a downside expansion and could possibly trigger our initial targets at 1.6290 (S2) and 1.6266 (R3) later on today.

Downwards scenario: Risk of market weakening is seen below the support level at 102.77 (S1). Loss here is required to allow further declines and expose our supportive barrier at 102.62 (S2) en route towards to final target for today at 102.46 (S3).

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Next barrier on the upside lie at 1.3768 (R1). Surpassing of this level might enable our initial target at 1.3788 (R2) and any further gains would then be limited to last resistive structure at 1.3806 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the other hand, price pattern suggests bearish potential if the instrument manages to overcome next support level at 1.3728 (S1). Possible price regress could expose our initial targets at 1.3706 (S2) and 1.3684 (S3) in potential.

Downwards scenario: Possible pull back development is limited now to the key supportive barrier at 102.92 (S1). Only loss here would be considered as a beginning of a retracement expansion.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: We expect consolidation development after the initial uptrend formation on the hourly chart frame though possible bullish penetration might face next challenge at 1.3775 (R1). Break here is required to establish further bullish pressure, targeting 1.3789 (R2) en route towards to last resistance for today at 1.3806 (R3). Downwards scenario: Further correction development is limited now to the session low - 1.3728 (S1). If the price manages to surpass it we would suggest next intraday targets at 1.3706 (S2) and 1.3684 (S3).

Resistance Levels: 1.3775, 1.3789, 1.3806
Support Levels: 1.3728, 1.3706, 1.3684

Upwards scenario: Market having failed to establish directional movement yesterday. Possible price strengthening might arise above the next resistance level at 1.6465 (R1). Our interim target holds at 1.6493 (R2) en route toward to our major aim at 1.6518 (R3). Downwards scenario: We would shift our short-term technical outlook to the negative if the price manage to penetrate below the key support at 1.6421 (S1). Loss here would suggest next initial targets at 1.6403 (S2) and 1.6382 (S3).

Upwards scenario: Pair has settled sideways formation on the hourly timeframe. However potential to move higher is seen above the resistance level at 102.93 (R1) mark. Loss here would suggest next intraday targets at 103.15 (R2) and 103.38 (R3). Downwards scenario: Penetration below the support at 102.65 (S1) is liable to put more downward pressure on the instrument in the near-term perspective. As a result our supportive means at 102.47 (S2) and 102.30 (S3) might be triggered.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Possibility of market strengthening is seen above the immediate resistive barrier at 1.3806 (R1). Price extension above it is required to validate our next intraday targets at 1.3832 (R2) and 1.3860 (R3). Downwards scenario: While instrument trades above the moving averages, our short-term bias would stay positive though penetration below the support level at 1.3757 (S1) might open way towards to lower targets at 1.3728 (S2) and 1.3706 (S3).

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Short- term tendency is bearish as both moving averages are pointing down. Though risk of market strengthening is seen above the resistance level at 1.3777 (R1). Clearance here would open way towards to next targets at 1.3792 (R2) and 1.3806 (R3). Downwards scenario: A break of the support at 1.3739 (S1) is required to determine negative intraday bias and enable lower target at 1.3723 (S2). Clearance of this target would open a path towards to final support for today at 1.3706 (S3).

Upwards scenario: Rise above the resistance at 1.6369 (R1) might provide sufficient space for the appreciation towards to next target at 1.6384 (R2). Further market increase above it would then face final resistive structure at 1.6398 (R3). Downwards scenario: If the price manages to overcome our next support barrier at 1.6319 (S1), we expect to see further market decline towards to our next target at 1.6304 (S2) and then next stop could be found at 1.6290 (S3) mark.

Downwards scenario: On a slightly longer term we expect pullback formation. Risk of market depreciation is seen below the next support level at 103.46 (S1).

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Medium term bias tends to slide into the bearish side. Further market rise is limited now to the key resistive barrier at 1.3777 (R1), clearance here is required to enable next resistances at 1.3792 (R2) and last one at 1.3806 (R3). Downwards scenario: Risk of market decline is seen below the next support level at 1.3737 (S1). Loss here might downgrade currency rate towards to the next supportive means at 1.3723 (S2) and 1.3706 (S3) in potential.

Downwards scenario: Possible downside extension might face next supportive barrier at 1.6290 (S1). Clearance here is required to open the way towards to our initial support at 1.6268 (S2) and any further price regress would then be limited to final support at 1.6246 (S3).

The Aussie fell 0.4 percent to NZ$1.0773 after earlier touching the weakest since October 2008. It was 0.5 percent weaker at 88.98 U.S. cents. The Aussie dollar fell to a five-year low versus New Zealand’s currency as the Reserve Bank of Australia said in minutes of its most recent meeting that it maintained the option to cut interest rates.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: EUR extended its decline versus the USD and determined negative short-term technical outlook. However above the resistance at 1.3697 (R1) opens a route towards to next resistive measures at 1.3715 (R2) and 1.3731 (R3). Downwards scenario: Next support level is seen at 1.3656 (S1), any penetration below it might activate downside pressure and enable lower target at 1.3634 (S2). Any further market decline would then be limited to 1.3615 (S3).

Resistance Levels: 1.3697, 1.3715, 1.3731
Support Levels: 1.3656, 1.3634, 1.3615

GBPUSD :
HIGH 1.63972 LOW 1.63656 BID 1.63763 ASK 1.63768 CHANGE 0% TIME 08 : 37:24



OUTLOOK SUMMARY : Down
TREND CONDITION : Upward penetration
TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bearish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY : High

Upwards scenario: The possibility of an upside price progress is seen above the resistance level at 1.6391 (R1). Evaluation above this mark might initiate bullish pressure and expose medium-term interim targets at 1.6408 (R2) and 1.6424 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the short-term perspective the pair might encounter supportive measures at 1.6353 (S1). Loss here might change intraday technical structure and opens the way for a test of 1.6337 (S2) and 1.6324 (S3) later on today.

Resistance Levels: 1.6391, 1.6408, 1.6424
Support Levels: 1.6353, 1.6337, 1.6324

USDJPY :

OUTLOOK SUMMARY : Up
TREND CONDITION : Up trend
TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bearish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY : Medium

Upwards scenario: Upside risk aversion is seen above the next resistance level at 104.36 (R1). Appreciation above it might lead to the positive intraday bias formation towards to our next targets at 104.60 (R2) and 104.83 (R3). Downwards scenario: On a slightly longer term we expect pullback formation. Risk of market depreciation is seen below the next support level at 103.83 (S1). Clearance here would suggest lower targets at 103.54 (S2) and 103.24 (S3) in potential.

Resistance Levels: 104.36, 104.60, 104.83

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: EUR/USD maintained a negative near-term tone though recovery action is possible above the next visible resistance at 1.3663 (R1). Clearance here might initiate bullish pressure and validate our next targets at 1.3678 (R2) and 1.3691 (R3). Downwards scenario: Yesterday session low offers key supportive barrier at 1.3631 (S1). Break here might provide sufficient momentum on the downside and expose our intraday targets at 1.3615 (S2) and 1.3600 (S3).

Resistance Levels: 1.3663, 1.3678, 1.3691
Support Levels: 1.3631, 1.3615, 1.3600

----------------
GBPUSD :
HIGH 1.63722 LOW 1.63502 BID 1.63527 ASK 1.63529 CHANGE 0.01% TIME 08 : 43:59



OUTLOOK SUMMARY : Down
TREND CONDITION : Sideway
TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bearish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY : High

Upwards scenario: Possible upwards formation is limited now to resistive measure at 1.6391 (R1). A break above it would suggest next intraday target at 1.6408 (R2) and if the price holds its momentum we can expect price increase towards to final resistance at 1.6424 (R3). Downwards scenario: Next support level is seen at 1.6351 (S1), any penetration below it might activate downside pressure and enable lower target at 1.6337 (S2). Any further market decline would then be limited to 1.6324 (S3).

Resistance Levels: 1.6391, 1.6408, 1.6424
Support Levels: 1.6351, 1.6337, 1.6324

USDJPY :
HIGH 104.591 LOW 104.213 BID 104.44 ASK 104.442 CHANGE 0% TIME 08 : 43:59



OUTLOOK SUMMARY : Up
TREND CONDITION : Up trend
TRADERS SENTIMENT : Bullish
IMPLIED VOLATILITY : Medium

Upwards scenario: Market sentiment has improved for the bullish oriented traders. Fresh high formed today offers key resistance level at 104.60 (R1). In case of price appreciation above it our focus would be shifted to the higher targets at 104.83 (R2) and 105.05 (R3). Downwards scenario: Medium-term bias is clearly positive however possible progress below the initial support level at 104.09 (S1) might expose our intraday targets at 103.83 (S2) and then 103.54 (S3) in perspective.

Resistance Levels: 104.60, 104.83, 105.05
Support Levels: 104.09, 103.83, 103.54
