. Fundamental Analysis Report With Charting Trends - 10 March 2023



10 Mar 2023


Prior to important data releases at the end of the week, US stock markets suffered losses once more on Thursday. The Dow fell 1.66%, the S&P 1.85%, and the Nasdaq fell 2.05%, setting the pace. The US government yields remained near to recent high levels, while the dollar continued to trade in very narrow ranges against the major currencies. All of these were driven by growing investor apprehensions about a future rate hike from the Fed.

As we get closer to the important Non-Farm Payroll data release tonight in the New York trading session, investor fears continue at a high level. US markets had a significant sell-off due to concerns that this month could bring us another harsh figure like January’s unexpected 517k print. The weekly jobless claims increased last night, giving the bulls some hope that perhaps rate hikes are beginning to affect the labour market. Nevertheless, this is an outlier in the recent data, and today’s NFP result will have a far bigger impact Anything below the expected gain of 205k will cause markets to move, and something like January’s number will send the dollar rocketing and send stocks further downward.

But today’s news isn’t just about non-farms; during the Asian session, the Bank of Japan released its most recent rate decision and related announcements. As usual, no specific time has been designated for the announcement, but traders should be ready at the terminals by noon in Tokyo. We have important GDP data for the UK coming out in the London session, with a 0.1% m/m increase expected. After that, there will undoubtedly be a major event in the American session, however Cad traders are aware that Canadian job data will also be released at the same time.

How did the US session go?

DXY retreated, following higher-than-expected Unemployment Claims (211k vs forecast 195k), from Tuesday’s rally underpinned by Fed Chair Powell’s hawkish testimony. The S&P 500 saw a significant drop due to risk aversion ahead of the US NFP.

What does it mean for the Asian Session?

The session’s highlight is the BOJ’s monetary policy decision, although the market does not expect any changes. The recent decline in USD/JPY may mask underlying expectations for potential hawkish surprises from Governor Kuroda’s final meeting.

Technical Outlook


Price is currently overlapping our first barrier at 1.1917; if it were to break through this level, it would then move towards our second resistance at 1.2144.

Our first support level, which is overlap support, is at 1.1764, and the second support level is at 1.1632.


The EURUSD is showing bullish divergence vs. RSI and has neatly retraced from our intermediate support around 1.0535. The first resistance level for the price might be reached at 1.0697, which is just below the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement.

The first significant support, strong overlap support, is located at 1.0485. If this level were to be broken, the price may fall much deeper, reaching our second support at 1.0354.


Price is nearing our first support at 0.6535, which is an overlap support, after reversing from our first resistance at 0.6640, a strong Overlap Resistance. The next significant support level, which is also an overlap support, would be at 0.6379 if the price were to depart from this one.

The first barrier is at 0.6696, which is a temporary pullback resistance level, and the second obstacle is at 0.640, which is a strong overlap resistance.


A rising support line is providing support for the price. The first resistance at 138.04, a significant overlap resistance, may be pressed further. Price might move up to the second resistance level at 139.64 if it were to break through that barrier.

DAX 40

Price is currently falling towards our first support at 15234, which is overlap support. If price were to break, it would then fall to our second level at 14969. Price has reversed from major swing high resistance at 15654, which is a swing high resistance.


Brent Crude Oil USD’s structure is quite disorganized. Fibonacci retracements of 61.8% and 78.6%, respectively, serve as our first and second supports, which are both visible at 80.33 and 78.88, respectively.

In terms of resistance, we can see an overlap resistance at 82.22 – if the price were to break that resistance, the next closest resistance is all the way up at 86.10 which is a major swing high resistance.


Our first overlap support level, at 20.05, is being tested by the price. Price might drop back down to the second support level in 19.59, which is a significant overlap support, if it were to break through this level.

Our first resistance level, which is an overlap resistance, is at 20.61, and our second resistance level, which is also an overlap resistance, is in 21.00, which coincides with the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement.


Price is falling to our first support level at 1348; if it reverses from here, it might go up to our first resistance level at 1463, which is an overlap resistance, and the second resistance is 1539.
