#1

The pound, krone and rand are the currencies to watch heading into 2017 as technical charts and supportive cross-asset themes signal their recent momentum may continue.

Emerging-market equities and oil prices may have bottomed, helping the Norwegian and South African currencies, while the pound has room to claw back sharp losses following the Brexit vote. In the rates world, German bund and U.K. gilt prices have the potential to rebound from now into the start of next year as the surge in yields meets strong resistance.

While GBP/CHF trades below the down-trendline from December 2015, leading MACD has already broken out bullishly, pointing to more spot upside. There’s scope for a deeper retracement to 1.3403-1.3603 (50 percent retracement and 61.8 percent Fibonacci, trendline and cloud base) where tactical consolidation may emerge. Above here will bring into frame a 1.40 target-zone (9 percent from the current spot), which captures a larger order Fibonacci and cloud top (note: cloud top drops to 1.35 in late March). High-price distribution at about 1.40 may trigger another round of consolidation.

A weekly close below 1.2253 would question the bullish setup.

EUR/NOK rolled over in November against its 100-week moving average (9.1217), which confirmed its role-switch from support-to-resistance. The first target support is at 8.8610 (61.8 percent Fibonacci) and then 8.6515-6413 (76.4 percent Fibonacci and 200-week moving average). An overshoot target is at 8.3128 (2015 low), 7 percent away from the current spot

The krone’s bullishness ties in with a constructive medium-term view on crude oil prices (see more here).

A weekly close above 9.1217 (the 100-week moving average) would question the bearish stance.

The USD/ZAR chart shows consolidation since August below its 55-week moving average at 14.78, with the trend outlook staying bearish while below that level. It could break 13.20 support to target 12.23-10, the 50 percent retracement of its 2011-2016 rally and the 200-week moving average level. This would be a move of 12 percent from its current level.
