Brent Falls Below $30 per Barrel

Oil prices are continuing to fall. Brent on March contracts has dropped to $29.6 per barrel. WTI with March delivery is on offer for no more than $29.5 on the market today. Oil quotes resumed their fall from the beginning of this week and this is continuing due to the head of the Saudi Aramco oil company, Khalid al-Falih, saying that investment in energy projects is to remain at the same level.

Mark Carney Could Affect the Euro via Euro/Pound Cross

The euro/dollar on Monday was up to 1.0856. The movement went against that of Friday. The euro received support from falling stock indices and oil prices. It’s a mystery to me how falling oil prices can have a negative effect on indices or oil indices.

EUR/USD

If you look at the weekly or monthly chart you can clearly see that the price has been in a Bearish channel since 2008 and each time the price reached near either the upper or the lower line of the channel, it bounced back again to the Large channel. It may be interesting for some of you to know that it took 7 years - from 2001 to 2008 - for the market to make that Bullish move and from 2008 until now - a little more than 7 years - to correct that move. Also according to the data I have got there is another 7-years Bearish trend from 1994 to 2001. If we consider these valid cycles, we can suggest that there are 7 years apart from each major low and major high and 14 years between two major lows.

Trading opportunities for currency pair: bull divergence has formed on the weekly and this is a signal to buy Australian. If the Chinese indices and oil continues to rise, an AUD/USD rise to 0.7155 can be considered as part of a general dollar correction. The AO indicator is showing a double bull divergence on the weekly timeframe. If the AUDUSD will strengthen above 0.7155, we can target 0.7325. Growth will cancel with a close of the daily cancel below 0.6826.
