Let’s take a look at the relevant data of currency price changes and interest rates to date, which we compiled using a trade-weighted index of the major global currencies.
Monthly Forecast for November 2023
For the month of November, I made no forecast, as the US dollar was in the process of making a deep counter-trend retracement.
Weekly Forecast for Sunday, Nov. 19, 2023
Last week, I made no weekly forecast. This week, I forecast that the AUD/USD and EUR/USD currency pairs are likely to decline in value.Directional volatility in the Forex market increased last week, with 48% of the most important currency pairs fluctuating over the trading period by more than 1%. Volatility is likely to decrease over the coming week, as there will be fewer high-impact data releases.Last week was dominated by relative strength in the Australian dollar, and relative weakness was seen in the US dollar.
Key Support/Resistance Levels for Popular Pairs
I often teach that trades should be entered and exited at or very close to key support and resistance levels. There are certain key support and resistance levels that can be monitored on the more popular currency pairs this week. Let’s see how trading one of these key pairs last week off of key support and resistance levels could have worked out.
I had expected the level at $0.9050 might act as resistance in the USD/CHF currency pair last week, as it had acted previously as both support and resistance. Note how these “role reversal” levels can work well.The H1 price chart below shows how the price rejected this level right at the start of last Monday’s New York/London session overlap (which can be a great time to enter trades in major currency pairs like this one) with a bearish piercing candlestick, marked by the downward arrow, signaling the timing of this bearish rejection. This trade has been extremely profitable so far, giving a maximum reward-to-risk ratio of more than 12 to 1 based upon the size of the entry candlestick.
