Ikon Daily Markets Analysis Economic Development: A bailout package was approved intended to keep Cyprus in the euro zone and rebuild its devastated economy. The deal would scrap the highly controversial idea of a tax on bank deposits, although it would still require forced losses for depositors and bond holders. The agreement calls for Cyprus Popular Bank Pcl (CPB) (also known as Laiki Bank) to be shut down and split. Depositors in the bank with accounts holding more than 100,000 euros would also be heavily penalized but the exact amount of those losses would need to be determined. The Bank of Cyprus Plc would take over the viable assets of the failed bank along with 9 billion euros in central bank-provided emergency liquid-ity aid. German IFO business climate fell slightly by 0.7 points from 107.4 to 106.7 in March. This correction comes after four months during which the IFO business climate had im-proved by 7.4 points. The current assessment of the economic situation also worsened again slightly and its index fell from 110.2 to 109.9. The business climate index for manufacturing firms fell from 9.6 to 8.6 but remains significantly above the weak levels (-6 to -11.5) observed late last year. The business climate in construction held up well and rose to 7.2 from 6.9. The business climate in wholesale fell sharply to 0.0 points after 6.3 in February but has been very volatile lately, while it edged up in retail (0.0 after -1.2). All in all, we had expected to see some consolidation of past gains this month in the IFO index, although the drop was a bit stronger than anticipated. On the back of relatively weak orders and industrial production data for January, the latest weakness in the PMI and IFO surveys adds to some concern over the strength of the rebound that the Ger-man economy currently appears to be going through. At this stage, we remain relatively confident that a robust global economy and sound domestic fundamentals will ensure a sustained recovery. Risks to this outlook still stem from the euro area crisis, but we continue to consider them relatively contained.

Cushioned by an immediate support in 1605 – 1601, XAU can keep struggling for 1612 and 1620 – 1626. On the downside, a relapse through 1601 would call for weakness towards 1595 -- 1593 and 1586. Trade accordingly. Generally speaking, a convincing closing above 1620 is needed to confirm a small double-bottom for deeper upwards correction towards the 38.2% retracement (1647) of 1796 to 1555 descend. On the downside, slippage below 1577 would terminate the upwards correction for a meltdown towards 1559 and 1532.

Trading Strategy: Neutral Sell at strength at 1612-1620; targeting 1588-1584 and 1574-1566, upside breakage of 1622 will lead to 1626-1631 and 1641-1648. Buyers can buy in 1600-1605 with risk below 1594 hourly closing; targeting 1615-1620 and 1626-1634.

MACD has broken zero line and giving a sell signal. Stochastic has been entered in the oversold territory and still giving negative crossovers to signal for bearish outlook for intraday. RSI is also in oversold region but signaling to buy. The pair managed to stable below 1.3000 levels which is negative and could push the pair to the downside towards the extended targets of the AB=CD bearish harmonic Pattern. The descending channel shown on the graph also supports extending negativity to test 1.2905 levels and perhaps towards 1.2805 levels. Stability below 1.3080 levels is an initial catalyst to maintain these expectations.

signal. MACD is now in negative and indicating increasing histograms; buy stance. The Stochastic Oscillator is in overbought territory and now giving positive crossover to confirm bullish stance. The pair stabled with the beginning of this week's trading above key resistance level of the downside move that might be considered Broadening Pattern and might test 1.5190 levels towards around 1.5225 levels. Great volatility is valid and perhaps bearish corrections due to the pair's momentum as shown on Stochastic. Anyhow, trading above 1.4880 levels will be considered positive this week.

Trading Strategy: Neutral Buy in 1.5130-1.5190 with the risk below 1.5030; targeting 1.5250-1.5310. Sell around 1.5250-1.5300; targeting 1.5190-1.5130 and 1.5080-1.5030, and stop-loss with four-hour closing above 1.5405.

Technical in Focus: In daily charts, JPY is sustaining above 20DMA (92.80), which is strong support on the daily chart. MACD is above zero line and histograms are also increasing lead to an upward movement. The Stochastic Oscillator is in overbought territory now but signaling to buy as it has given positive crossover to confirm bullish stance. The pair dropped, but level 94.10 levels managed to halt the downside push of this week. Also we find the pair stable above key support level of the upside move, forcing us to think that the pair might move to the upside again during this week. Breaking 92.50 levels could stop the possibility of a bullish move and might get the pair into a downside correctional wave.
