  • Traders back from Easter holiday – volume set to pick up
  • End of Q1 with book squaring in mind across Currencies, Indices and Commodities
  • Market timing perhaps in anticipation of a larger move or in to rollover for Q2
  • Q2 outlook deemed positive for now after various central banks stimulus are at work
  • Dead cat bounce in commodities over? What do we have in store for Q2?
  • Will the Fed hike in April / Q2 and then rein in at Q3 and then another hike in Q4?

Currencies Update

Dollar Index

Daily

  • More rooms for the dollar to consolidate higher first before another sell off in the making
  • Perhaps this is a build up for April rate hike scenario. Dollar index is also showing sign of a potential build up with shorts taking profit ahead of what potentially could be an April rate hike talk by the Fed. Therefore, going forward the USD will remain favorable to break higher – pressure on AUS/USD and NZD/USD will appear in the next few weeks with gold also looking lower.

USD/YEN

EUR/USD

GBP/USD

Daily

  • Will be aggrassive buyer on a retest of previous low

NZD/USD

Daily

  • Further weakness as the USD regained its footing but a retest on the lower channel may offer a decent RR for long

AUS/USD

Daily

  • Still trading within the uptrend line but daily RSI is showing sign of bull exhaustion
  • Cannot rule out that further upside remain in store but will be aggressive seller at the high

Platinum

Daily

  • Looking very toppish and will not be surprised to see daily RSI moving lower to ease off from the overbought levels

Copper

Daily

  • Technically under pressure to retrace lower – perhaps to find support and test buyers resilience
  • Completed the small IHS and now consolidating

Oil

Daily

  • Approaching potential sell zone but without a break below the uptrend line, we cannot confirm to take a trade
  • We need confirmation from lower time frame of a confirmed break in the market structure
  • US Oil inventories data today

Platinum

Daily

  • Should the price retrace, there is a potential inverse head and shoulder set up
  • For the IHS to work, price must not breach below $850

Copper

Daily

  • RSI is diverging and selling pressure may start to escalate if long bails out on the back of any risk off sentiment
  • The smaller IHS has hit target – there is a potential set up for a much larger IHS.

Oil

Daily

  • Uninterrupted uptrend line – April meeting is keeping the current rally but a breach below the uptrend line will certainly signal the end of the short covering rally
