Gross Domestic Product q/q (GDP) is a monetary valuation of all goods and services produced in the United States in the given quarter compared with the previous one minus the price of goods and services used in production.

The GDP calculation equation includes consumer spending, government spending, amount of all investments (including capital expenditures for activities) and total net export of the country.

GDP is the indicator of the country's economy and population living standards. A regular inflation adjustment allows for a valid comparison of the current value with the previous one. Thus, the country's GDP can be displayed as a percentage of the previous year or quarter. This is handy for measuring the economic growth rate.

GDP growth can have a positive effect on dollar quotes.

According to the Analysis, pair is expected to find support at 0.6264 and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 0.6245. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 0.6328 and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 0.6347.

USD JPY


USD traded lower against JPY and closed at 107.76.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Research discusses USD/JPY outlook and maintains a structural bearish bias

The bar is high for the BoJ to cut the policy rate and the USD/JPY level is likely to be a key variable. We would sell USD/JPY (and vol) if it rallies on expectations for the BoJ from the current level.

The likelihood of the BoJ's rate cut would increase if USD/JPY sells off to 104-105, accompanying weakness in risk assets. However, we do not think a mere 10bp rate cut would contain the pressure. We expect the market to test the BoJ in such a scenario and volatility will rise," BofAML notes.

"But the combination of fiscal easing, rate cut with supplementary measures, and more purchases of foreign assets by public/semi-public institutions, may prove effective in weakening JPY," BofAML adds.

BOJ Governor Speech is an event having the greatest impact on JPY among all public statements made by the Japanese regulator. The Governor's rhetoric reflects the official position of the Bank of Japan.

If some hints at tightening the monetary policy by the Bank of Japan are detected in the Governor speech, it may affect JPY positively.

According to the Analysis, pair is expected to find support at 107.20 and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 106.99. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 107.86, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 108.07.

Technical Overview of GBP/USD and EUR/USD Currency Pair

GBP USD

GBP traded higher against USD and closed at 1.2322.

·         Modest flow, +0.1%, at top of a very tight 1.2320/28 range, EUR/GBP -0.1%.

·         Boris's top adviser Cummings; Brexit chaos 'A walk in the park'.

EUR USD
EUR traded lower against USD and closed at 1.0921.

CIBC Research discusses the USD outlook and the Fed rate call expectations. CIBC targets the USD index DXY at 98.9 by year-end and at 95.6 by Q2 of 20120.

"We share the view of many FOMC speakers that rate cuts will be a bit shallower than markets anticipate, with the rate cuts in July and September to be followed by one more 25 bp ease in December, and then a pause," CIBC notes.

"While US data has been a mixed bag, the economy has yet to have a quarter of growth below its non-inflationary potential. American consumers are in a healthy position based on an ample savings rate, low monthly financial obligations, and ongoing labor income growth. That underlying resilience, while not preventing a further slowing in growth, should be bullish for the dollar against overseas currencies in the very near-term, given the deeper risks to growth abroad (i.e. China and Europe), as well as uncertainty surrounding Brexit and trade, that will propel safe haven inflows in the greenback.

Over a longer time horizon, an easing in the appetite for such flows should see DXY give back some of its strength. For that, we’ll need some fiscal stimulus in Europe to reduce its dependence on negative yields, and an easing in US-China trade tensions. Any reduction in the attractiveness of US assets as a safe haven serves to weaken the greenback, given America’s persistent current account deficit," CIBC adds.

According to the Analysis, pair is expected to find support at 1.0911 and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 1.0898. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 1.0955, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 1.0968.

Why Would Forex Traders Use Forex VPS hosting servers?

VPS or Virtual Private Servers are software’s used by many computer users for many industries businesses and personal uses. VPS are becoming popular among Forex users because they offer an entirely independent operating system for forex trading.

Using a VPS for your Forex trading can be very efficient if you only have a desktop, or you do not like trading on your lap top or smaller devices. The VPS can be accessed through any computer as long as there is a network connection. So whether you are in the office, at a friend’s house, at a hotel or abroad, you can turn any computer into your own by accessing your VPS and executing your trades.

If you use a trading Robot the VPS can continue trading even if your power goes off. So in the case that you are using a VPS then once the power is cut off you don’t have to worry about what will come out of your positions, because the VPS will still be functioning even if you cannot see it.

When you purchase a VPS from a reputable company you will also receive a security package, and constant security check ups to make sure your VPS’s security is up to date, this way you know you’re trading won’t be effected by a problem or a virus on your computer.

VPSs are much faster than a computer, and they will be much faster at transmitting orders than your computer. So by using a VPS you will be avoiding any form of slippage, and avoid any cases of losing money.

A VPS needs to have a good RAM to take the bare minimum of disk space on your computer, and even though it may be costly it is cheaper than buying an entirely new device to trade on and on the long run it can prove to be efficient.

Technical Overview of GBP/USD and EUR/USD Currency Pair

GBP USD

GBP traded lower against USD and closed at 1.2217.

GBP/USD remains within its 1.1950-1.2600 September range, but the downside looks vulnerable unless there is a surprise Brexit breakthrough, or a rout in the USD.

Since becoming PM, Johnson has been accused of talking to his Brexiteer electorate, rather than negotiating with the EU. His repetition of key phrases such as the 'surrender bill', used to describe the law making a hard Brexit illegal on Oct 31, is a case in point - this strategy was successful in the 2016 Brexit referendum.

Johnson insists the UK will exit the EU without a deal on Oct 31, but he committed in court to respect the law.

The GBP/USD pair now seems to have entered a bearish consolidation phase and was seen oscillating in a narrow band just above one-month lows set in the previous session. The incoming Brexit headlines might continue to influence ahead of FOMC meeting minutes.

According to the Analysis, pair is expected to find support at 1.2199 and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 1.2174. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 1.2281 and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 1.2306.

EUR USD
EUR traded higher against USD and closed at 1.0954.

EUR/USD is reporting moderate gains, having defended key MA support. Fed's Powell said the central bank's balance sheet will expand again. American Dollar may find bids if the Fed minutes highlight growing split among policymakers.

According to the Analysis, pair is expected to find support at 1.0945 and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 1.0932. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 1.0987, and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 1.1000.

Technical Overview of AUD/USD and NZD/USD Currency Pair

AUD USD

AUD traded higher against USD and closed at 0.6777.

FED Chair Speech affects USD depending on the speech rhetoric. If the speech is seen as an intention to raise the rates at the next FOMC meeting, this has a positive impact on USD and vice versa

The FED Chair's statements have the greatest impact on the market compared to other members of the FED Board of Governors.

Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) Governor Speech may contain information about the expected change in the bank's interest rates or in the monetary policy.

The Aussie dollar, a G-7 proxy for China, is not impressed by reports of US-China trade talks gaining momentum. AUD/USD failed to take out key average hurdle despite renewed trade optimism. RBA's Debelle said slower wage growth is a new norm in Australia.

According to the Analysis, pair is expected to find support at 0.6769 and a fall through could take it to the next support level of 0.6761. The pair is expected to find its first resistance at 0.6793 and a rise through could take it to the next resistance level of 0.6801.

NZD USD

NZD traded higher against USD and closed at 0.6416.

Retail Sales m/m reflects a change in New Zealand's retail sales in the reported month compared to the previous one. The calculation is adjusted for inflation. The index is often referred to as the consumer spending indicator, which allows assessing inflation in New Zealand. The indicator growth can have a positive effect on NZD quotes.

Consumer Confidence Index displays the level of consumer confidence in the stability of the country's economy. It is based on the data from the monthly survey of more than 5000 households and is designed to evaluate the relative financial status, purchasing power and confidence of an average consumer. The survey consists of five questions, two of which are associated with the current economic conditions, while three deal with expectations. Since 60% of the survey has to do with expectations, the indicator is considered to be a leading market indicator. The indicator growth assumes an increase in consumer spending.

•             NZD/USD is facing pullback risks after multiple failures at the 100-day MA hurdle.

USD traded lower against JPY and closed at 108.75.

USD/JPY's CTA positioning and notes that it's mainly close to neutral and sidelined around current levels.

"CTAs having held back on going long in the USD/JPY market (buying USD and selling yen) during the recent risk-on phase, they have managed to avoid simultaneous stock selling and yen buying.

CTAs' USD/JPY positions are close to neutral at present, and they are not currently moving either to buy or to sell. 

"With the latent risk of yen appreciation being suppressed, if fundamentals-oriented investors begin tentatively dip-buying below 23,000, this downward move by the Nikkei 225 could be brought to a close relatively soon.
