Markets are currently looking ahead to France, the second largest economy in the euro zone, for a reading of industrial production, which may reflect a rise of 0.5% versus a decline of 2.3% in the previous reading for the month of June, before we see the same index reading for Italy, the third largest economy in the region. It may show that the decline shrank to 0.1% from 0.2% in June.

The number of jobs added to 130 thousand jobs compared to 159 thousand jobs added in July, contrary to expectations that indicated 163 thousand jobs added.

Technical Analysis

The narrow range continues to dominate the EURUSD trading, which remains within the channel shown, thus, the temporary bullish scenario will remain probable over intraday basis, awaiting the test of 1.1100 before returning to resume the bearish main trend.

Note that a breach of the target will push the price to 1.1180 before any new negative attempt, while a break of 1.1005 will press the price to resume the decline without having to touch the suggested targets.

Expected trading range for today is between 1.0950 support and 1.1110 resistance.

Expected trend for today: Temporarily bullish.

The Japanese economy followed the release of the seasonally adjusted final GDP figure, which showed growth slowed to 0.3%, in line with expectations, compared with 0.4% growth in the previous quarter prior to the second quarter and 0.6% growth in the previous quarter. GDP measured in prices stabilized at 0.4%, also in line with expectations and against 0.1% growth.

Technical Analysis

USDJPY is retesting the breached neckline of the double-bottom pattern shown above, and holds it above it so far, noting that the Stochastic is providing a positive crossover signal now, while SMA 50 supports the price from below.

Therefore, these factors encourage us to maintain our bullish expectations over the coming period, with the next targets at 108.30 then 109.30, while achieving them requires stability above 106.70.

Expected trading range for today is between 106.20 support and 107.70 resistance.

On Sunday, we were followed by the Chinese economy, the second largest economy in the world, the release of the Trade Balance Index, which showed that the surplus shrank to 240 billion yuan ($ 34.8 billion) from 310 billion yuan ($ 45.1 billion) in July, worse than forecasts. The surplus shrank to 300 billion yuan, or $ 44.3 billion, as exports fell less than forecasts, which slowed growth and imports fell less than expected.

The worsening trade war between the world's two largest economies has recently reinforced investor fears about the pace of US and Chinese growth and the global economy as a result of the US administration's growing trade protectionism with many countries, led by China. The United States and China resumed their trade negotiations by early next month in Washington to ease market concerns.

This came in conjunction with the current account reading showing the surplus narrowed to 1.65 Trillion yen versus 1.94 trillion yen in June, worse than expectations that the surplus shrank to 1.70 trillion yen.

Technical Analysis

Gold is showing more bearish bias to test the 1508.30 level, and SMA 50 is forming a continuous negative pressure against the price, so we expect the decline to continue during the coming sessions to test 1493.80 as the next major stop.

Therefore, we are waiting for more negative trading today, keeping in mind that a breach of 1531.75 will stop the current negative pressure and lead the price to resume the bullish main trend again.

Expected trading range for today is between 1493.00 support and 1524.00 resistance.

Expected trend for today: Bearish.
