Markets were relatively quiet at the beginning of this eventful week while both GBP/USD and EUR/USD were accompanied be a slight upward tendency. We believe that the slight rebound in the euro and British pound could be of a temporary nature as the U.S. dollar faces some event risks with the FOMC decision and Non-Farm Payrolls report on tap. Dollar bulls may tend to jump back in ahead of these events.
The EUR/USD recovered some losses towards 1.1660 but this small recovery could prove to be a correction within a downtrend. For the bias to shift from bearish to neutral euro bulls would need to push the single currency beyond 1.18. As long as the euro remains below 1.18 we favor the bearish bias and focus on a price breakout below 1.1550.
The Eurozone Consumer Price report is due for release today at 10:00 UTC but if CPI print is in line with expectations it will not affect the euro’s price action.
The GBP/USD traded with a tailwind but gains were capped at 1.3215. We consider the 1.3250-barrier to be a crucial short-term resistance in the cable. If the pound drops back below 1.3120 we may see further losses towards 1.3050.
