China’s Yuan To Strengthen Against USD – Currency Analysis

China’s yuan weakened against the US dollar on Friday, with strong corporate demand supporting the greenback but the Chinese currency is on course for its best week in more than a month.

Prior to market opening, the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) set the official yuan midpoint at its strongest in six weeks at 6.5810 per dollar.

In the spot market, the onshore yuan opened at 6.5730 per dollar and was changing hands at 6.5890 at midday, 40 pips weaker than the previous late session close and 0.12 per cent softer than the midpoint.

If the yuan ends the late night session at the midday level, it would have gained 0.6 per cent against the dollar for the week – its best weekly performance since mid-October. The yuan strengthened around 0.19 per cent a week earlier.

Traders said market sentiment remained cautious in early trade, but some corporate clients rushed to take advantage of the cheaper dollar which dragged spot yuan lower.

The dollar was under pressure in overseas market after the latest minutes from the Federal Reserve’s policy meeting showed concerns over low inflation in the United States.

Candlesticks

A big white candle occurred. This is generally considered bullish, as prices closed significantly higher than they opened. If the candle appears when prices are “low,” it may be the first sign of a bottom. If it occurs when prices are rebounding off of a support area (e.g., a moving average, trendline, or retracement level), the long white candle adds credibility to the support. Similarly, if the candle appears during a breakout above a resistance area, the long white candle adds credibility to the breakout.
During the past 10 bars, there have been 3 white candles and 7 black candles for a net of 4 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 25 white candles and 20 black candles for a net of 5 white candles.

A piercing line occurred (which indicates that prices moved down on the previous bar, opened even lower, but then closed significantly higher). This implies strength as the momentum appears to be shifting from the bears to the bulls. Note that the higher the close of the white candle (relative to the black candle), the more bullish the Piercing Line pattern.

Momentum Indicators

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 20.9263. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 0 period(s) ago.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 43.26. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 54 period(s) ago.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)

The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -181.This is an oversold reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses above -100. The last signal was a buy 15 period(s) ago.

MACD

The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 7 period(s) ago.

There is a good possibility that volatility will decrease and prices will stabilize in the near term.

Our trend forecasting oscillators are currently bearish on CNY= and have had this outlook for the last 16 periods.

Ivy Heffernan

My name is Ivy Heffernan, and I am interested in a wide range of professions. Economics and politics at the age of 17 is easy when your father has a Ph.D in economics, i have been taught to put together technical analyst and stay up to date with the changing markets as well as what is happening in the political world. Marketing: This one comes as quite a surprise. As I never really knew my true potential for it. It began when I offered to help someone once with their seo, marketing and Web design for free. I'm only 16 so I knew no one would pay me for something I 'claimed' to be good at. Although thanks to analytic reports, it showed that from the seo I was doing the website got more than double its daily views. On top of that the owner was more than happy with the Web design and for marketing. Well for someone who only started a month ago, getting 10+ people a week I'd say is pretty good. Summary: I think being a well rounded individual on all topics is the most important thing to everyone, with the changing economies it's good to know that no matter what life throws at you, and no matter what job you are given, you'll always be capable.
