  • Market Brief


    The week kicks off with December housing figures and February consumer confidence number on Tuesday. December factory orders and pending home sales are due out on Wednesday, ahead of 4th quarter GDP numbers and the weekly jobless claims figures. A particularly busy Friday has December’s core PCE price index and personal spending figures due out, ahead of manufacturing PMI numbers and finalized consumer sentiment figures for February. Outside of the stats, FED Chair Powell’s testimony Tuesday and Wednesday will garner plenty of attention ahead of a scheduled speech on Thursday.


    Key stats through the week include consumer confidence figures out of Germany on Tuesday and the Eurozone’s consumer confidence figures on Wednesday. On Thursday, 4th quarter GDP numbers and January consumer spending figures out of France will be in focus. Inflation figures out of Spain, Italy, and Germany are also scheduled for release on the day. Focus on Friday will shift to finalized manufacturing PMI numbers, the Eurozone’s unemployment rate and inflation figures. Of greater influence will likely be February employment numbers out of Germany.


    It’s another relatively quiet week on the data front. Key stats are limited to February manufacturing PMI numbers on Friday. While there will be some interest in the inflation hearings on Tuesday, focus through the week will continue to be on Brexit.


    Economic data includes January inflation figures due out on Wednesday. Also in focus will be January’s RMPI due out on Thursday, while 4th quarter GDP numbers on Friday will be the key driver on the data front. Outside the numbers, the effects of U.S – China trade talks on market risk sentiment will also influence crude oil prices and the Loonie.

    DXY Weekly Time-frame


  • Previous Weekly Breakdown

    Price has formed a strong bearish marubozu candlestick which will likely push price further south this week.

    EURCAD Weekly Time-frame



    1. Marabuzo candlestick trendline break

    2. 1.48500 support


    The breach of the trendline will likely give sellers further momentum to lower the rate of this pair towards the 1.48500 support.

    Alternative scenario

    A close back inside the trendline will invalidate this setup.

  • Previous Weekly Breakdown

    Some strong profit taking was evident during the latter part of last week when price reached a key resistance level. The most recent rally is continuing to show signs of strength as investors continue to increase the demand for the yellow metal.

    XAUUSD Weekly Time-frame



    1. Support at 1300.002. Resistance zone at 1370.00


    It is forecasted for price to test the resistance level at 1360.00 - 1370.00 where it is expected to consolidate.

    Alternative scenario

    A strong weekly close below last weeks low could potentially drive a price depreciation down to 1300.00.

    Chart Link


  • Previous Weekly Breakdown

    The precise bounce at 143.000 caused a new higher low to form which was in confluence with previous support. Price has now breached the previous lower high which would likely give buyers the confidence to continue driving price higher.

    GBPJPY Weekly Time-frame



    1. Support zone / Higher Low 141.002. Resistance level at 145.500


    The probability of this pair to hit the 145.500 is highly probable due to the strength in the recent bullish candlestick close.

    Alternative scenario

    A close below the support zone at 141.000 will discredit this bullish bias and likely cause a strong sell off below 140.000.

    Investment Risks

    Although every investment involves some degree of risk, the risk of loss trading off-exchange forex contracts can be substantial. Therefore, if you are considering investing in this market, you should be aware of the risks associated with this product so

    you can make an informed decision prior to investing. The investor should note that hedge fund investing involves specialized risks that are dependent upon the type of strategies undertaken by the manager. This can include distressed or event-driven

    strategies, long/short strategies, using arbitrage (exploiting price inefficiencies), international investing, and use of leverage, options and/or derivatives. Although the goal of hedge fund managers may be to reduce volatility and produce positive absolute

    Long-Short: Due to the strategies used by long-short funds, which may include but are not limited to leverage, short selling, short-term trading, and investing in derivatives, these funds may have greater risk, volatility, and expenses than those focusing on

    traditional investment strategies.
