Summary of 13 February UOB Daily Forex Trade ideas
AUDUSD: Further upside move diminishing – Bullish bias (unchanged)
AUD bullish outlook looks encouraging after a strong weekly and daily close (last Friday). However, AUD has to clearly break through the 0.7700 ceiling, failing to do so would mean that a short term top is in place. a UOB added,
“… A clear break of 0.7700 could lead to a rapid rise towards 0.7735, 0.7780.”
EURUSD: Downside pressure to 1.0530 – Neutral bias
There is continued EUR weakness after price hit a low of 1.0606 last Friday. There is possible further downward movement towards 1.0530 with an intermediate support at 1.0575. UOB added…
“… downward momentum is patchy at best and any weakness is likely to be ‘slow and grinding’. Resistance is at 1.0680 but only a move back above 1.0710 would indicate that a short-term low is in place.”

GBPUSD: Range bound 1.2350-1.2600 – Neutral bias
Very little to add as GBP continues to trade sideways. With the low volatility seen recently indicates a narrowing of the trading range. UOB added….
“… lower volatility seen over the past few days suggests a narrower consolidation range of 1.2350/1.2600 instead of the 1.2350/1.2670 expected previously”
NZDUSD: Near term downside pressure towards 0.7155 – Neutral bias
The NZD outlook remains unchanged as an “inside bar” was established last Friday. Expect the current pullback to extend further on the downside towards the strong support level of 0.7155-60. UOB added…
“… Overall, only a move back above 0.7260 would indicate that the immediate downward pressure has eased. ”
USDJPY: Rebound extension towards 114.50– Neutral bias
The current rebound from the 111.50-60 level indicates possible extension towards 114.50. A break above 114.50 could possibly see price move towards the late January high of 115.35-40. However, the odds for a continued momentum to the upside above the 115.35-40 level are not high. UOB added,
“….. the current positive undertone for USD would ease only when 112.60 is taken out (113.20 is already a strong short term support).”
This concludes the 13 February UOB Daily Forex Trade ideas, remains unchanged from yesterday.
