GBP/USD. Results of the day. New grounds for the fall of the pound will be received?

The amplitude of the last 5 days (high-low): 90p - 62p - 72p - 74p - 128p.
Average amplitude for the last 5 days: 85p (88p).

The British pound sterling, having completed the second support level of 1.2942, rebounded from it and began a weak upward correction. Yesterday's decline was very noticeable, so a correction is logical. Tomorrow, more precisely, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell will hold a speech by tonight, which could potentially have an impact on all currency pairs, including the US dollar. Given the "dovish" rhetoric of representatives of the Federal Reserve in recent months, now we can hardly expect its change into the direction of a "hawk". At the same time, it should be recognized that even Powell's "dovish" rhetoric did not have a lasting positive effect on the British pound. There are so many problems and uncertainties in the UK, and all are connected with Brexit, that the pound will be prone to fall, even if the Fed starts lowering the key rate. The likelihood that a "soft" scenario for Brexit will be implemented has again decreased in recent days. In addition, the results of the meeting of the Bank of England will be announced tomorrow. No change in monetary policy is expected. But a new portion of the fears and warnings from the head of the Bank of England Mark Carney is expected. And the stronger his fears are, the more chances that we will see another decrease in the British pound. From a technical point of view, the current correction is negligible and can be completed at any time. Thus, we recommend to be ready for a sharp resumption of the downtrend. So far, the full potential of the pound's fall is limited to the level of 1.2500.

Trading recommendations:
The GBP/USD currency pair has started a low correction. Thus, it is not recommended to open shorts until the MACD indicator turns back down. After the reversal, the targets will be 1.2883 and 1.2841.

Long positions will become relevant not earlier than the consolidation of the price above the critical Kijun-sen line. In this case, the target will be the level of 1.3175, but this will require serious fundamental grounds.

In addition to the technical picture, fundamental data and the timing of their release should also be taken into account.

EURUSD: US inflation unchanged. Eurozone continues to slide into recession

The euro fell slightly after data showed that industrial production in the euro zone declined more than expected in December. However, buyers immediately activated in the area of important support levels and did not allow a larger downward movement to be formed.

According to the report, industrial production in the eurozone in December 2018 declined immediately by 0.9% compared with November, while the interviewed economists expected a reduction of 0.3% only. Such weak indicators once again confirm the fact of more than a serious slowdown in the economy at the past and at the beginning of this year.

In the afternoon, there was data on inflation in the United States. Despite the weak report, the US dollar regained some of the positions that was lost yesterday which was paired with the euro.

According to a report by the US Department of Commerce, consumer prices in the United States in January 2019 remained unchanged in comparison with the previous month, while economists had expected an increase of 0.1%. The base consumer price index, which does not take into account volatile categories, including energy, rose by 0.2% compared with December. Economists had expected the base index to rise by 0.2% in January as well. As compared with the same period of the previous year, prices rose by 1.6% in January, yet it is not enough for the Federal Reserve's target level. Base prices, on the other hand, rose by 2.2% compared with January 2018.

The British pound fell immediately after data released indicating that the rate of consumer price inflation in the UK slowed down and was beneath the target level set by the Bank of England.

The main reason for such a sharp decrease was the fall in energy prices at the end of last year.

According to the data, the consumer price index CPI UK in January 2019 increased by 1.8% compared with January 2017 and an increase of 2.1% back in December. The basic level of the Bank of England is around 2%.

The base index, which excludes volatile categories, but includes food, tobacco products, and energy, rose 1.9% in January, as well as in December.

Bear in mind that quite recently, the Bank of England announced that they were not refusing further increases in interest rates. However, given these indicators, it is unlikely that anyone will hurry to tighten monetary policy unnecessarily in the future, which may weaken the position of the British pound, and which will be eliminated under pressure due to the uncertain Brexit scenario and slowdown in the British economy.

As for the technical picture of the GBP / USD pair, yesterday's upward correction, which was observed in the second half of the day, may continue today. However, this requires breaking through the important resistance levels of 1.2920 and 1.2980.

EUR/USD: the next resistance level is 1.1370

The dollar index goes down, while the euro rises in price for almost all currency pairs: the first trading day of the week continued the trend from Friday, when the EUR/USD pair rebounded from the annual low and restored all lost positions. Today, the downward price dynamics have continued.

The main driving force behind the EUR/USD's price growth is the news background on the prospects for trade relations between the US and China. Let me remind you that this week the parties will resume the negotiation process, which may culminate in the conclusion of a "truce" between the two countries. To be more precise, the parties can only come to a framework agreement, where only the main positions of the future document will be indicated. This "letter of intent" will form the basis of a future deal, the details of which will be discussed between the leaders of the People's Republic of China and the United States during a personal meeting.

Over the weekend, Donald Trump said that "great progress" had already been made on the issue of concluding a trade deal, and he is optimistic about the prospects for the upcoming talks. A similar position was voiced by the leader of China Xi Jinping. According to him, the parties managed to achieve significant success in resolving trade disputes. In unison with their leaders, the negotiations and high-ranking officials, in particular, the US Treasury Secretary, the US Trade Representative, and the Vice-Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China, Liu He, appreciated the negotiations.

Such optimism was reflected in market sentiment. The US dollar, which is usually in demand against the backdrop of increasing global problems, began to actively slow down. The dollar index moved away from local highs in the area of 96.9, not finding the strength to test the 97th figure. And although the decline in this indicator is fairly smooth, the causal link is obvious: the closer Beijing and Washington are to the deal, the weaker the position of dollar bulls.

However, the EUR/USD did not increase only because of this factor. The Brexit theme also concerns traders of the pair, given the approaching deadline. It is worth noting that the news flow regarding the prospects of the "divorce process" does not always affect the pair (unlike the pound, where this topic is in indisputable priority). The single currency reacts to Brexit news mainly when the parties closely approach the red lines of the negotiation process. This week Theresa May will hold talks with the EU leadership (in particular, with Juncker) and with the leaders of the EU countries.

The central issue is the regime of the Irish border, namely, the mechanism of the backstop, which is the main irritating factor for the majority of British deputies. During the weekend there were rumors that the representatives of France offered Brussels to make some certain concessions on this issue, so that the negotiations would move from a dead point. Although journalists later denied this information, traders are still optimistic about the future, in the hope of a long-awaited compromise on the backstop issue. The European currency follows the pound, although at the moment there are no significant reasons for the price increase: there are a lot of rumors around the upcoming talks, which sometimes contradict each other.

In such circumstances, it is impossible to make any clear predictions, so this fundamental factor can not be called reliable. By the way, a UK government spokesman said today that following a European voyage by the prime minister, the Cabinet could change the terms of the deal or even delay Brexit. This suggests that London doubts that Theresa May will be able to convince her colleagues that the terms of the deal need to be revised. But traders are still inclined to believe optimistic rumors, so both the pound and the euro show a positive trend.

The Bundesbank report published today also provided indirect support to the EUR/USD pair. Recently, news from Germany does not please investors: economists of the German government revised the forecast of GDP growth downwards, and macroeconomic indicators for December and January were released in the "red zone".

The report of the German central bank also acknowledged the slowdown of the main parameters of the national economy. But at the same time, members of the regulators stressed that they did not observe any signs that a slowdown in GDP growth would turn into a decline in the economy. Such an unexpected conclusion was supported by the European currency, especially against the background of Monday's nearly empty economic calendar. During the European session, the Bundesbank report became the only more or less significant source of news, while the American sites are closed today on the occasion of the celebration of Presidents Day.

Thus, the euro-dollar pair has the potential for further correctional growth: today, the price tested the first resistance level of 1.1340 (the Tenkan-sen line on the daily chart). If the pair bulls overcome this barrier, they will approach a stronger level - 1.1370 (the middle line of the Bollinger Bands on the same timeframe).

Brent: appetite grows while eating

Growth of the global risk appetite against the background of the de-escalation of the US-Chinese trade conflict has made it possible for oil to climb to the area of three-month highs. Black gold is growing along with global stock indexes in the hope that the end of the trade war will increase global demand. Although OPEC has reduced its growth forecast for this indicator to 1.24 million b/d for 2019, investors believe that the recovery of the economies of the eurozone and China will provide an opportunity for it to expand faster. If we add to this the effectiveness of operations to reduce the cartel's production as well as other producing countries by 1.2 million b/d, it becomes clear why Riyadh allows itself to make loud statements that the allies managed to bring the market to a normal state.

Leaders bear the greatest burden. Saudi Arabia plans to reduce production to 9.8 million b/d in March, which is 500 thousand b/d more than the country's commitments. Its exports have already declined by 1.3 million b/d in the first half of February. With OPEC's fall in production to 30.81 million b/d in January, the strengthening factor of global risk appetite made it possible for Brent and WTI to play a fifth of their value since the beginning of the year.

Dynamics of oil and OPEC production

Finally, financial managers who previously preferred to take a wait-and-see position actually waited. By the end of the week, by February 12, they had increased their longs in the North Sea variety by 10%, which is the fastest growth rate since August. Shorts reduced by 5.5%. Thus, speculators have become net buyers of Brent at 32 million barrels in equivalent.

The weakness of the US dollar played a significant role in the rise of oil to three-month highs. Fans of the USD index have been helped for a long time by the desire of central bank competitors of the Fed to adhere to ultra-soft monetary policy, but the progress in Washington and Beijing talks reduced the demand for safe-haven assets, causing a serious blow to the US currency. At the same time, HSBC Holdings warns that if something goes wrong in further negotiations between Washington and Beijing, then black gold will plunge into a wave of sales.

Indeed, the rise in prices allows American manufacturers to feel at ease. The number of rigs from Baker Hughes rose to 857 in the week to February 15, and the US Energy Information Administration predicts that production in 2020 will reach a record figure of 13 million b/d. Companies registered in the United States are used to hedge risks and the growth of Brent and WTI allows them to increase production even at unprofitable price levels. Sooner or later this circumstance will be felt, however, during at time when the market is in a state of euphoria because of the expectations of the end of the trade war.

Technically, the breakthrough of resistance at $64.1 per barrel brought the bulls on Brent to an operational space. They were able to develop a correction as part of the transformation of the Shark pattern to 5-0 and are ready to push futures quotes to the level of 50% of the CD wave. It corresponds to $68.4.

EUR/USD. What will the minutes of the Fed reveal?

The minutes of the January Federal Reserve meeting will be published tonight - the so-called "minutes". The results of the regulator's first meeting this year were disappointing for the US dollar. The Fed finally confirmed its policy of slowing down the tightening of monetary policy. In the text of the accompanying statement, as well as during the speech of the Fed chairman, the word "patience" was often mentioned, therefore the market does not expect any "hawkish" notes from the minutes.

A certain intrigue of today's release remains. The market will first of all evaluate - how monolithic the decision to slow down the rate of rate increase looks. If the number of "doves" will significantly exceed the "hawkish" wing, then the dollar will again be under additional pressure. Yesterday's comments by Loretta Mester (which, by the way, has no voting rights this year) have weakened the greenback throughout the market. This suggests that dollar bulls are still sensitive to the soft statements of members of the Federal Reserve, even though the other central banks of the leading countries of the world have also taken a "defense position". The monetary policy outlook of the Fed is gradually coming to the forefront against the background of the expected breakthrough in the US-China trade negotiations. If Beijing and Washington find a common denominator this week and make a deal before March 1 (or announce it by extending the deadline for additional approvals), the dollar will lose a significant trump card for its growth.

Under these circumstances, the Fed may either increase pressure on the greenback, or become a "saving straw", especially against the background of softening the rhetoric of the ECB and other central banks. It is worth noting that the Fed's report, which will be published today, might provide unexpected support for the US currency. The fact is that the market expects too soft rhetoric from the members of the regulator. If the minutes demonstrates some disagreement within the Committee, the market reaction may disappoint EUR/USD bulls. In my opinion, the dollar can collapse throughout the market only if the regulator hints at a possible pause until the end of this year. And although this option is unlikely, it cannot be ruled out, given the recent speeches of Fed members.

This is not just about Loretta Mester, who was mentioned above. Today, her position was repeated by one of the most influential members of the regulator - the head of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, John Williams. Moreover, he stated that he did not see the need to raise the rates - only if circumstances of a "shocking" nature emerge. In his opinion, the rate has already reached its neutral level - at least the lower limit of this range.

This rhetoric is very consonant with the position of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell, who at the end of last year designated the neutral level range of 2.5% -3.5%, while declaring that the monetary tightening cycle was gradually coming to an end. This year, the US regulator can more clearly articulate its idea: the rate has reached a neutral level, then the Fed will act according to circumstances, responding to incoming data. Although these findings have long been floating in the air, their "fixation" will provoke strong volatility in the market, and this volatility will not be in favor of the dollar. By the way, Williams in today's speech added that the Fed will continue to reduce the volume of the bond portfolio on the balance sheet - according to his estimates, the reduction process may end when the balance drops to one trillion dollars.

In general, the dynamics of today's trading confirms the fears of investors: the euro/dollar pair froze in a flat, especially against the background of a half-empty economic calendar. Here it is worth recalling that, in addition to the publication of the Fed minutes, the results of the meeting between the British prime minister and the head of the European Commission will be announced. If, despite all the circumstances, they will be able to move the situation from a dead point, the single currency will receive a strong enough support, which will undoubtedly affect the dynamics of the EUR/USD pair.

Thus, the events of today's evening can either lead the pair to the borders of the 14th figure (with an attempt to test), or return to the area of the 12th figure). Fundamental factors are too unpredictable, so it is almost impossible to talk about the probability of the implementation of a particular scenario.

From a technical point of view, it is important for EUR/USD bulls to stay above 1,1305 (Tenkan-sen line) in order for it to not lose the potential for growth and approach the next resistance level of 1,1390 (the lower limit of the Kumo cloud on the daily chart). Bears of the pair, in turn, need to consolidate below 1.1270 – in this case, the Ichimoku indicator will form a bearish "Parade of lines" signal, and the price itself will be between the middle and lower lines of the Bollinger Bands indicator on the same timeframe.

EUR/USD: Weak data on the eurozone will not allow the euro to continue its growth. The minutes of the ECB

Data on Germany continue to upset investors, creating some pressure on risky assets, including the euro, which also fell against the US dollar in the first half of the day after the release of weak reports on the eurozone economy.

According to the data, the final consumer price index CPI of Germany in January this year fell by 0.8% compared to December 2018. Compared to January 2018, the index grew by 1.4%. However, the euro fell only slightly against the US dollar at the beginning of the European session, as the data completely coincided with the forecasts of economists.

A more significant pressure on the EURUSD pair was exerted by the report, which indicated that the preliminary index of PMI supply managers for the German manufacturing sector in February remained below 50 points, indicating a decrease in activity, and amounted to 47.6 points, while it was projected at 49.9 points. Back in January, the above index was 49.7 points.

This has had a significant impact on the overall performance of the eurozone manufacturing sector. According to the results of surveys of supply managers, the production index of the eurozone fell below 50 points and amounted to 49.2 points in February, indicating a decline in activity.

Only good preliminary indicators in the service sector, both in Germany and in the eurozone as a whole, have managed to smooth the pressure on the euro.

According to the report, the preliminary index of PMI supply managers for the German service sector in February was 55.1 points against 49.7 points in January. Economists had forecast PMI services Germany at the level of 52.9 points.

In the eurozone as a whole, according to IHS Markit, the composite index of supply managers, which consists of an indicator of activity in the manufacturing sector and the service sector, rose to 51.4 points in February from 51.0 points in January.

Today, the minutes were published from the January meeting of the European Central Bank, which confirmed the concerns of traders that the regulator may start the LTRO program, which will be aimed at long-term refinancing of the banking system.

The minutes indicate that the leaders of the ECB at the January meeting discussed new long-term loans for banks, but more accurately everything will be known at the March meeting, when the ECB will revise economic forecasts. The European regulator is confident that potential new lending operations should reflect the objectives of monetary policy in general.

There were also concerns related to negative factors for the economy, which are only temporary in nature. Special attention was paid to the risks in connection with the exacerbated situation around Brexit.

Trading plan for EUR/USD for February 27, 2019

Technical outlook:
The 4H chart presented for EUR/USD indicates that the single currency pair is approaching resistance soon at the 1.1425 levels as depicted here. We can expect another push higher towards the above, before reversing lower again. With the current wave structure, it seems likely that an impulse is in the making from the 1.1233 lows as highlighted on the above chart. Bulls are expected to push through the 1.142030 zone, probably today, in the next 7-8 hours before bears take control back over a corrective drop towards the 1.1310/20 levels. If the prices move according to the above wave structure, EUR/USD should be poised to hit higher highs in the coming several weeks with the potential price targets such as 1.1500, 1.1650, and 1.1800/20. As an alternative, a drop below 1.1233 and subsequently below the 1.1215 levels could see further bearishness into the 1.1180/90 region before the rally resumes.

Trading plan:
1. Aggressive: Long now @ 1.1378 stop at 1.1350 target @ 1.1425
2. Aggressive: Short @ 1.1425, stop 1.1450/60, target @ 1.1310
3. Conservative: Long on dips towards @ 1.1310/20

Good luck!

Gold got rid of the ballast

Rebounding from support near two-week lows, gold quickly recovered and rushed to attack. The external background for the precious metal remains favorable, and the short-term correction is due to a partial profit-taking after a long rally and the statement of US trade representative Robert Lighthizer that there are still many issues in relations with China and the deal has not yet been concluded. Let me remind you that the conflict between the two largest economies in the world faithfully served the US dollar in 2018.

Despite the fact that gold is considered a safe haven asset and a hedge against inflation, it is growing amid the recovery of US stock indices and the slowdown in consumer prices in the United States. In fact, one of the main drivers of the S&P 500 rally is the reduction in the cost of borrowing in real terms. The negative correlation between the stock index and the yield of US Treasury bonds reached its highest levels since 2012, due to the Federal Reserve's desire to pause the process of normalizing monetary policy. 7 years ago, the central bank announced another round of quantitative easing.

The dynamics of the correlation of the S&P 500 and the yield of US bonds

However, the fall in real rates of the US debt market creates favorable conditions not only for the shares, but also for many assets of the commodity market, including gold, oil and copper. Precious metal does not bring interest income to its holders, so it cannot compete with bonds if their yield increases. Currently, it is falling, and investors are actively diversifying their portfolios in favor of XAU/USD.

The current consolidation of gold is due not only to profit taking by speculators after 9% of the winter rally, but also to the reluctance of the derivatives market to increase the chances of reducing the Federal funds rate in 2019. CME derivatives believe in the end of the normalization cycle, however, in order for them to adopt the idea of easing the Fed's monetary policy, further deterioration in macroeconomic statistics across the United States is necessary. Theoretically, it is very likely, because the traditionally bad weather for this time in the United States, the fading effect of the fiscal stimulus, the negative impact of the dollar's revaluation on exports and GDP, as well as the weakening of external demand due to trade wars draw moderately pessimistic prospects for US indicators. At least in the short-term investment horizon.

The dollar can recover in the medium-term. The euphoria about the de-escalation of the trade conflict has driven the S&P 500 too high. The rally does not have a solid foundation in the form of improved macroeconomic statistics. According to 65% of more than 90 experts from Reuters, US stock indexes are in danger of falling in the second half of this year. This will have a positive effect on safe-haven assets, including the US dollar.

Technically, if bulls on gold manage to keep quotes above $1,321 per ounce, the risks of continuing the rally in the direction of the target by 361.8% on the AB=CD pattern will increase.

AUD/USD. In the grip of contradictions: the aussie cannot choose the vector of its movement

The March meeting of the Reserve Bank of Australia was quiet and almost imperceptible. The regulator retained the parameters of monetary policy in its previous form and did not frighten the market with arguments about the interest rate reduction in the foreseeable future. The Australian dollar, in turn, reacted accordingly: paired with the US currency, the "aussie" remained within the 70th figure, and Tuesday's price fluctuations were associated more with Chinese data than with the results of the RBA meeting.

In order to assess the prospects of AUD/USD, first of all it is necessary to remember the reasons for the pair's decline last month. The downward impulse was due to the rhetoric of the head of the RBA Philip Lowe, who, to the surprise of many traders, allowed the probability of lowering the interest rate this year. It is worth noting that in fact his phrase was more shrouded – firstly, he reported the transition to a "neutral position" in monetary policy, and secondly, he noted that the rate can be both increased and reduced. But the market interpreted this commentary in its own way, especially since earlier in the text of the accompanying statement there was only a phrase that "in the future" the parameters of monetary policy will be tightened. In other words, the regulator has transparently hinted that in the near future it will take a wait-and-see position, and then act on the situation, and the option of reducing the rate is likely to be the opposite scenario. In response to such prospects, the AUD/USD pair fell by almost 200 points, but the price did not fall below the 70th figure, stuck in a narrow-range flat.

Given Philip Lowe's rather dovish rhetoric, many experts warned that the regulator could significantly soften its tone at the March meeting. However, these forecasts did not come true: the Reserve Bank voiced a cautious, but not pessimistic position, even noting positive developments in the Australian economy - in particular, regarding the labor market.

Let me remind you that according to the latest published data, the unemployment rate in Australia remained at five percent, but the increase in the number of employed jumped to 39.1 thousand - the last time such a dynamics was observed was back in August 2018. Moreover, employment growth in January was not due to part-time employment — on the contrary, the employment rate for full-time jobs, which imply higher wages, surpassed a one-and-a-half high, while part-time employment showed a negative trend. This factor has a positive effect on the dynamics of wage growth and, indirectly, on the dynamics of inflation growth.

However, despite the neutral and optimistic results of the March meeting of the RBA, the aussie did not regain its position or even leave the region of the 70th figure. The reason for this is China. Today, another disappointing data from China was published, which again reminded the market of the slowdown of the world's largest economy. Thus, the index of business activity in the services sector from Markit (Markit Services PMI) sharply declined in February, reaching 51.1 points. Over the previous three months, this indicator came out within the framework of 53 points, therefore, such a sharp and, most importantly, unexpected (forecast was at the level of 53.5 points) downward jump had an impact on the dynamics of today's trading. The Australian dollar is most sensitive to the decline in Chinese indicators, since China is its main trading partner.

Taking into account such contradictory fundamental factors, the AUD/USD pair will continue to be traded in the flat - if only the data on Australian GDP growth for the fourth quarter of last year (the release is scheduled for March 6) prove to be stronger/weaker than forecasts. According to general expectations, the Australian economy should grow by 0.5% qoq and decrease to 2.7% year-on-year. If the release comes out at the level of forecasts, then the pair's situation will remain as before, otherwise the aussie will test either the support level (0.7020 - the lower boundary of the Kumo cloud on the daily chart), or the resistance level (0.7180, where Kijun-sen coincides with the upper line of the Bollinger Bands indicator on the same timeframe).

AUD/USD: The aussie dives down, but there is strong support ahead

Yesterday, the Australian dollar showed certain optimism, "inspired" by the results of the March meeting of the RBA. The regulator took a cautiously optimistic stance, focusing on the positive aspects of the Australian macroeconomic reports. Contrary to the fears of many experts, the central bank did not discuss the issue of reducing the interest rate, leaving some hope for the preservation of the status quo. But today, market mood regarding the prospects of the Australian currency has changed dramatically: published data on GDP growth in Australia suggests that the option of easing monetary policy can not be dismissed. Moreover, according to a number of currency strategists, such a scenario should be considered as one of the main ones.

Data on the growth of the Australian economy was disappointing. What is alarming is not just the fact that the country's GDP slowed down in the fourth quarter of last year - it is a persistent trend towards a decrease in the key indicator. Thus, if in the first quarter of 2018, Australia's GDP was at the level of 1.1% (quarterly), in the second quarter it decreased to 0.9%, in the third – to 0.3%, and finally in the fourth – to 0.2%. The same dynamics is observed in annual terms of the indicator: I quarter – 3.2%, II – 3.1%, III – 2.7% and IV – 2.3%. Today's release was not only worse than forecasts, but it also marked a certain anti-record. For example, on a quarterly basis, the indicator showed the weakest growth dynamics since the third quarter of 2016.

It is worth recalling that at its January meeting, the Reserve Bank of Australia downwardly revised its forecast for economic growth this year - from 3.5% to 3%. However, the figures published today suggest that the RBA may return to this issue in the future, reducing its growth forecast to at least 2.8%. Extremely weak indicators for the fourth quarter cast doubt on the sustainability of the country's economic growth and, consequently, increases the likelihood of a response from the Australian regulator. As I mentioned above, some currency strategists warn their clients about the implementation of such a scenario.

So, in late February, experts from Westpac (one of the largest banks in Australia, included in the "big four" banks of the country) surprised traders with the fact that they had made a double RBA rate cut before the end of this year. At the same time, economists of this bank, at the beginning of the year, claimed that the regulator would leave the rate unchanged until the end of 2020. Such a sharp turn put some pressure on the Australian dollar, which was then offset by good data on the Australian labor market and neutral results of the March meeting.

Nevertheless, Westpac did not abandon its "dovish" forecast: moreover, today this opinion was supported by two more conglomerates - JPMorgan and Macquarie Bank. Analysts of these banks said that the Australian regulator will not be able to ignore the further slowdown in the economy, while there are no prerequisites for changing the situation at the moment, especially against the background of the slowdown in the PRC economy. Therefore, the RBA will have no other choice but to lower the interest rate - at least once before the end of this year. The opinion of several large banks is shared by many experts, who voiced their point of view following the release of disappointing data.

According to more restrained forecasts, the RBA will still hold a wait-and-see position, but if there are no clear and strong signals about economic recovery in the coming months, then the central bank will still lower the rate - especially if economists worsen GDP growth forecasts for this year to 2.6% .

After such an unexpected reversal in the market's general sentiment, the Australian dollar was under considerable pressure. Paired with the US dollar, the aussie is heading to the main support level of 0.70. This mark is a "price stronghold", which is difficult to break through, but even more difficult - to consolidate in the area of 69-68 figures. If you look at the weekly and monthly charts, you can see that the pair was under the 70th mark only in 2016 for the last time in a long time. After that, the bears made impulsive attempts to break through, but the price quickly returned to its usual niche.

Therefore, despite the negative fundamental background for the aussie, short positions in the AUD/USD pair currently appear risky, with the price now in the area of 0.7030, that is very close to the key level of support. In this case, it is advisable to observe the behavior of the pair at the bottom of the 70th figure. If the bearish momentum fades, then a corrective pullback will probably follow (approximately to 0.7080, that is, to the upper boundary of the Kumo cloud on D1), which, however, does not cancel the overall downward trend for the pair.

Forecast for GBP/USD on March 8, 2019

Data on the growth of the Australian economy was disappointing. What is alarming is not just the fact that the country's GDP slowed down in the fourth quarter of last year - it is a persistent trend towards a decrease in the key indicator. Thus, if in the first quarter of 2018, Australia's GDP was at the level of 1.1% (quarterly), in the second quarter it decreased to 0.9%, in the third – to 0.3%, and finally in the fourth – to 0.2%. The same dynamics is observed in annual terms of the indicator: I quarter – 3.2%, II – 3.1%, III – 2.7% and IV – 2.3%. Today's release was not only worse than forecasts, but it also marked a certain anti-record. For example, on a quarterly basis, the indicator showed the weakest growth dynamics since the third quarter of 2016.

On a smaller scale, H4, price convergence with the Marlin oscillator is being formed, which can be realized in a correction from the pound's fall from February 28, visually from the balance line to the daily. We do not expect a high correction, since the signal level of 1.3108 can assume the role of a split, that is, the level at which the price will be wound in a consolidation process.
