Technical tips


EUR/USD is moving in an uptrend. It has approached the key resistance of 1.2170, which it has failed to break a few times already. If it jumps above it, the way up to the next round number of 1.2200 will be clear. On the flip side, the pair is unlikely to break the 50-period moving average of 1.2130 as it has been nicely supporting the pair since November. The Fed’s meeting on Wednesday will have a huge impact on the pair.   



The British pound regained its recent losses. GBP/USD is trading inside ascending channel. If it jumps above the key resistance of 1.3400, the way up to the high of December 3 at 1.3460 will be clear. On the flip side, the move below the recent lows of 1.3300 will push the pair to the next support of 1.3200.



XAU/USD has approached the level of the recent highs at $1 845. Since it has failed to cross it several times, we can expect the pullback. If it manages to break it through, the way up to the high of December 8 at $1 870 will be clear. Support levels are $1 810 and $1 770.



The Australian dollar dipped amid the risk-off market sentiment. It is getting closer to the key psychological mark of 0.7500. It’s unlikely to break it by the first attempt, therefore we may see a retracement. If it finally drops below 0.7500, the way down to the 50-period moving average of 0.7470 will be open. Resistance levels are 0.7580 and 0.7600.

FED and BOE Make Another Attempt to Beat Inflation

The Federal Reserve (Fed) will announce its Interest Rate Decision and make a statement about the future monetary policy on Wednesday, September 21, GMT+3. After the higher-than-expected inflation numbers published on September 13, there’s almost no doubt the Federal Reserve will come up with another 75-basis-point rate hike. However, surprised by the CPI numbers, several Fed members announced the possibility of a 100-basis-point rate hike on Wednesday.
