USD/SGD Technical Analysis for Singapore binary options
The Singapore dollar starts to show strength against the US dollar after a bullish trend that started last year May ’18. The pair currently hangs by a thread as it rests on a moving average from the higher monthly time frame. Join us this week to get our opinion on the critical fundamental and technical patterns that decide the price direction.
Singapore Consumer Price Index
This index released on Monday by the statistics Singapore is often used to gauge inflation as it shows the cost of procuring goods and services by average consumers.
Singapore Industrial Production
The Department of Statistics in Singapore released the readings of the industrial production index this week Tuesday. This reflects variations in the volume of physical output of Singapore’s mines, factories, and utilities.
Growth in industrial production indicates a growth in the economy and consequently the growth of the Singapore dollar.
United States Retail Sales
The US Census Bureau release figures based on the total measured receipts of retail stores. Through changes in these figures, speculators and trades are able to project consumer spending.
Greater actual values are regarded as positive for the Singapore dollar, while a low reading leads to a bearish foreign exchange.
USDSGD: Monthly Chart
As the month comes to a close, the USDSGD, starts a bearish decline on lower time frames, thereby leaving the monthly chart with a high upper wick. At this point, a trend reversal is not yet confirmed and the bearish trend is still intact, despite the moving average acting as support at 1.3462.
USDSGD: Weekly Chart
The above weekly chart confirms a continuation of the bearish trend initiated by a bearish accumulation on 15 October ’18, by signaling a more recent breakdown of bullish pressure on 18 February ’19. This sets a strong resistance at 1.36143, as price threatens to close beyond the moving average.
