USD/EUR (EUR=X) Dollar up vs riskier currencies amid trade tensions
The dollar rose slightly against a basket of currencies on Tuesday, snapping a four-day losing streak as traders worried about mounting global trade tensions unwound bets on high-yielding currencies like the Australian and Canadian dollars, whose economies are heavily trade dependent.
The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of six currencies, was up 0.37 percent at 94.628. The index slipped 0.9 percent over the last four sessions.
U.S. and European stock markets steadied on Tuesday, a day after tumbling on conflicting signals from the Trump administration over proposed restrictions on foreign investment in U.S. technology companies, along with news that recently imposed import tariffs are starting to disrupt supply chains. China was in bear market territory.
The euro fell 0.43 percent at $1.1652. The greenback which fell 0.2 percent against the safe-haven Japanese yen on Monday, recouped losses to trade up 0.15 on Tuesday.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
The projected upper bound is: 1.18.
The projected lower bound is: 1.15.
The projected closing price is: 1.16.
A white body occurred (because prices closed higher than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 6 white candles and 4 black candles for a net of 2 white candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 21 white candles and 29 black candles for a net of 8 black candles.
A spinning top occurred (a spinning top is a candle with a small real body). Spinning tops identify a session in which there is little price action (as defined by the difference between the open and the close). During a rally or near new highs, a spinning top can be a sign that prices are losing momentum and the bulls may be in trouble.
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.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 75.1580. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 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 44.62. 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 20 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 -18. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 4 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a buy 2 period(s) ago.
