Can Euro And Pound Hold Onto Their High Levels?
The U.S. dollar fell to its lowest level since November as investors assessed the U.S. administration’s ability to push through promised tax cuts and infrastructure spending. That, in turn, raises doubts as to whether the Federal Reserve can raise interest rates as aggressively as had been priced in. Fed chair Janet Yellen will speak today at 16:50 UTC and dollar bulls fear that fiscal uncertainty may discourage Fed officials from taking an aggressive stance towards higher rates. In case Yellen’s tone is more cautious, the dollar could tend to fall.
Apart from Yellen’s speech, U.S. Advance Goods Trade Balance (12:30 UTC) and Consumer Confidence (14:00 UTC) are scheduled for release.
The euro broke above 1.0870 and extended its gains to a high of 1.0906. In case of a renewed break above 1.0875 we expect further bullish momentum, sending the euro higher towards 1.0920/50. A current support is however seen at around 1.0820.
The pound sterling marked a fresh high at 1.2615 while sterling traders have shrugged off tomorrow’s Brexit trigger. On Wednesday, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May will formally trigger the start of two years Brexit negotiations and while this event poses a risk to the currency the British pound remained stable around 1.2550. Nonetheless, we expect the upward movement to be limited to 1.2650 in short-term time frames. The pound may tend to test that resistance area before we will see any major pullback.
