FX Bazooka (your trading weapon)
EUR/USD: euro going to negative area

Technical levels: support – 1.0560, 1.0500; resistance – 1.0590.

Trade recommendations:

1. Sell — 1.0550/60; SL — 1.0580; TP1 — 1.0500; TP2 – 1.0460.

Reason: bearish Ichimoku Cloud, but rising Senkou Span A; a golden cross of Tenkan-sen and Kijun-sen, but the narrow channel Tenkan-Kijun; the prices are going out from the Cloud.

Gold surges in Asia in rebound to recent drops on Fed views

According to Fed rate monitor tool, almost 80% of market participants expect a rate lift in March, compared to about 60% on Wednesday.

Asian stocks edge down as caution sets in

On Wednesday, Asian stocks decreased after a strong start to the week due to profit-taking as market participants lacked conviction to purchase risky assets before an upcoming Fed policy gathering next week, which might see interest rates ascending for the second time in three months.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific stocks outside Japan dropped 0.1% in early trade, a day after reporting its biggest single-day leap in more than two weeks. Australia and Japan led losers.

The Fed is expected to have a policy meeting on March 14-15 and financial markets have rapidly ratcheted up bets of a rate lift at the gathering after recent hawkish comments by American policymakers.

This year market participants have rushed to purchase stocks as well as emerging market debt as they had previously expected the major US bank to increase interest rates only gradually and as recent data from Asia, including trade, have surprised on the upside, thus cementing the view of reviving global momentum.

China welcomes dozens of Trump’s trademarks

China has already granted preliminary approval for up to 38 trademarks linked to Donald Trump, as documents on China's state trademark office revealed. It gave the US President as well as his family the long-awaited protection of the "Trump" brand in the market.

The trademarks, covering a wide array of businesses from hotels to escorts and mobile libraries, underline the complexities as well as potential worries as for conflicts of interest facing President Trump, who boasts a sprawling business empire under the Trump name around the globe.

Trump, a prosperous real estate developer, has previously told that he has already handed over his business interests to a trust overseen by one of his sons as well as a Trump Organization executive. Of course, he can revoke the trust at any time, as its sole beneficiary is still linked to it financially.

They were granted preliminary approval in two lists released on the Trademark Office of the State Administration for Industry and Commerce on February 27.

Euro rises to 1-month peak after ECB rate lift talk

On Monday, the euro firmed to one-month peaks against the greenback in Asia trade on Monday, after some ECB policymakers raised the possibility of increasing interest rates before bond purchases end.

The common currency gained 0.2%, hitting $1.0699, having soared as high as $1.0701, its highest value since February 9.

Some members of the ECB's Governing Council talked about the probability of higher interest rates at the previous week's policy gathering, though talk on the issue was quite concise and it didn’t receive broad support.

The euro's revenues were limited by hopes that the Fed would decide to increase interest rates at its two-day policy gathering ending on Wednesday, after American employers hired folks at a robust pace in February.

The headline figure managed to surpass expectations and wages grew too, though by less than some analysts expected. The non-farm payrolls report reinforced market hopes that the Fed will increase interest rates this week notwithstanding slowing economic surge.

Greenback heads north on US yields

On Tuesday, the evergreen buck soared against a basket of key currencies, as US Treasury yields extended their soar ahead of an expected interest rate surge by the Federal Reserve.

The common currency pulled back from one-month peaks right after dovish-sounding comments from European Central Bank officials tempered its recent soar.

With a rate ascend already seen as a done deal, investor focus shifted to what kind of a message the major US bank would deliver after its two-day gathering starting later on Tuesday.

The latest surge in Treasury yields is definitely backing the greenback, but it’s a wait-and-see mood , which is mostly prevailing in the market ahead of the Fed's verdict.

The dollar index against a group of key currencies gained 0.1%, being worth 101.410, contributing to modest revenues made the previous day.

The US currency stood still at 114.850 yen, having dropped to 115.510 on Friday, its highest value since January 19.
