Forex Analysis EUR/USD | May 14/2019 | sgtmarkets.com |

The inflation outlook among U.S. consumers dipped sharply in April, potentially complicating the job of Federal Reserve policymakers who hope the pace of price increases will soon rise toward their target level.

President Donald Trump dramatically increased pressure on China, saying he would hike U.S. tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods this week and target hundreds of billions more soon. The move marked a major escalation in tensions between the world’s largest economies.

Last Eurozone CPI data ticked higher than analysts expectation. Also last German Unemployment Change and Industrial Production data better than expected.

We are in clear oversold phase. As written, many attempts to regain 1.1370 followed and now we expect to regain that level, first, and then to consolidate around that level.

Our special Fibo Retracement is confirming the following S/R levels against the Monthly and Weekly Trendlines obtained by connecting the relevant highs and lows back to 2012:

Weekly Trend: Bullish
1st Resistance: 1. 1370
2nd Resistance: 1.1567
1st Support: 1.1237 (fake breakout)
2nd Support: 1.1100

GBP/USD

Forex Analysis GBP/USD | May 14/2019 | sgtmarkets.com |

Eyes on today UK Job Market data.

Both last UK Industrial Production and Trade Balance better than expected.

Pound investors begin to increasingly doubt that any optimistic Brexit developments are likely over the next few months.
Pound investors express their disappointment regarding the lack progress in cross-party Brexit talks, with labour sources suggesting that the government remains reluctant to re-draw its red lines. Further limiting the appeal of Sterling are also the questions that continue to hang over Theresa May’s premiership, with the PM facing growing calls to step down.

The legal default, for now, will be for the U.K. to leave the European Union in 11 days with no deal in place.

Now eyes to 1.3362 important Supply Area after the test of 1.29 important Demand Area.

Forex Analysis AUD/USD | May 14/2019 | sgtmarkets.com |

The slowdown in the Chinese economy has damaged the Australian economy, so an escalation in the global does not bode well for the Australian dollar. During its quarterly policy statement, the RBA downgraded its GDP forecast to 2.75%, down from 3.0% in February. Inflation remains low, and the RBA rate statement, said that the labor market would have to improve before inflation could reach the bank’s target of 2.0%.

President Donald Trump dramatically increased pressure on China, saying he would hike U.S. tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods this week and target hundreds of billions more soon. The move marked a major escalation in tensions between the world’s largest economies.

Last U.S. Nonfarm Payrolls data better than expected also U.S. GDP inched up.

Australia CPI (Inflation measure) ticked down, also both the official and Caixin Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) in China for the April period missed estimates.

0.6960 is still a strong Support and Demand Area. If it will be broken then room on the downside to 0.69 and below. Otherwise, 0.7250 will be regained soon and the trend will be re-defined as Oversold.

Our special Fibo Retracements are confirming the following S/R levels against the Monthly and Weekly Trendlines obtained by connecting the relevant highs and lows back to 2012:

Weekly Trend: Neutral
1st Resistance: 0.7250
2nd Resistance: 0.7301
1st Support: 0.6988
2nd Support: 0.6875
