USD Weakness Sends EUR And GBP Soaring

Dear Traders,

While the House passed its version of tax bill Thursday, the U.S. dollar was little impressed and plunged during the Asian session amid low trading volumes.

The EUR/USD traded higher in the early European trading hours and we now focus on the 1.1850-barrier, which could prove crucial in terms of further bullish momentum. If the euro is able to stabilize above 1.1850, the next target is 1.1905. Sellers should, however, wait for a break below 1.1720 in order to sell euros towards 1.1670 and 1.1580.

Most attention will be paid to a speech of ECB President Mario Draghi today at 8:30 UTC, which could affect the euro’s price action.

The British pound soared on new Brexit optimism. After the U.K. has shown a “willingness to conclude a positive outcome” according to German MEP Manfred Weber, the EU is growing more confident that the current Brexit impasse will be broken and that exit talks will progress. While there might be some room for further gains in the GBP/USD, we bear in mind that as long the pair remains range-bound between 1.3340 and 1.30 there is no directional bias.

We wish you a nice weekend.

The Dollar’s Fate Is In The Hands Of The U.S. Tax Reform Bill

Dear Traders,

U.S. inflation data, at the end of the day, did not have a major impact on the U.S. dollar with the greenback ending the trading day virtually unchanged against the euro and British pound. The EUR/USD soared to a high of 1.1860 before it fell back below 1.18. Our assumption of a slight extension of gains in the EUR/USD has proved correct but the sharp intraday reversal could cause euro bulls to run out of breath now. While the 1.1910-Level remains a crucial resistance on the topside, the euro could now struggle to overcome the 1.1805-hurdle. If the single currency is able to stabilize above 1.18 we may see a run for 1.19 but with bullish momentum running out of steam the euro may head for 1.1730.

Euro traders should keep an eye on the Eurozone Consumer Price report due at 10:00 UTC, which could have a minor impact on the euro’s price action.

The current price action in the GBP/USD frays the nerves of day traders. The pair trades without any discernable direction and for traders looking to assign a directional approach, we recommend waiting for price breakouts either above 1.3270 and 1.3350 or below 1.31 and 1.3020.

Sterling traders should pay attention to a round of Bank of England speakers including BoE Governor Carney who is scheduled to speak at 14:00 UTC.

Apart from market-moving topics like Brexit and monetary policy, the fate of the U.S. dollar is in the hands of the U.S. tax reform. Today, the House will vote on its tax-overhaul bill, aiming to take the most concrete step toward overhauling the American tax system. House Republicans aim to get the tax reform done by year-end and that is exactly what dollar bulls want to see. How the dollar will trade in the near-term could therefore hinge on the outcome of today’s vote.

Monetary Policy Speak And U.K. CPI Data Could Boost Risk Appetite

Dear Traders,

The price trend in both GBP/USD and EUR/USD remains disappointing overall. The price of the euro has barely changed with the currency pair still oscillating around 1.1670. The British pound found some halt near 1.3060 and ended the trading day above 1.31.

The lethargic market situation might soon come to an end as market participants brace for higher volatility ahead of today’s upcoming high-profile event. The Heads of the European Central Bank, Federal Reserve and Bank of England are scheduled to speak on a panel in Frankfurt at 10:00 UTC. Chances are slim that policymakers will reveal anything new that the market does not already know but traders should prepare for heightened volatility around this event. If none of today’s speakers touches on monetary policy, the round table discussion will be a non-event for traders.

Shortly before that, sterling traders will pay close attention to the U.K. Consumer Price Report at 9:30 UTC. If inflation data beats expectations the pound could soar towards 1.32 and 1.3250. On the bottom side we will wait for a break below 1.3020 and more importantly 1.30.

EUR/USD

In short-term time frames the euro seems to be primed for an upside breakout. If the price climbs above 1.1680 we may see some bullish continuation towards 1.1715/25. For bearish momentum to accelerate the single currency must significantly drop below 1.1640.

USD Dips On Concerns Over Tax Cut

Dear Traders,

We finally saw larger market swings Thursday with the EUR/USD finding directional bias toward the North.

The catalyst for the weakening USD was news the U.S. Senate would delay tax cuts to the corporate rate until 2019 and while a delay is not what dollar bulls want to hear right now, they sold dollars on the news.

EUR/USD: We got the price breakout we were looking for in yesterday’s technical analysis. After the break above 1.1605 the euro gained ground against the dollar and rose towards 1.1655. If the euro breaks above 1.1660 we may see a run for 1.1685 and possibly the crucial resistance zone of 1.17-1.1730. On the bottom side, we focus on dips below 1.1570 and 1.1550, that could reinvigorate fresh bearish momentum.

GBP/USD: The price action in the cable remains messy. As long as there is no directional bias, traders may have to struggle with false breakouts. We are still looking for profitable price breakouts either above 1.3165 or below 1.3090.

U.K. Manufacturing Production figures are scheduled for release at 9:30 UTC and could have a minor impact on the pound.

From the U.S. we have the University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment due for release at 15:00 UTC but this report is not expected to have a major impact on the dollar.

We wish you good trades and a beautiful weekend.

Forex Market Remains Subdued

Dear Traders,

The price action in both EUR/USD and GBP/USD remains subdued amid the lack of market-moving economic reports and risk events throughout this week.

EUR/USD: The euro stabilized above the 1.1550-level and appears to be headed for another test of the 1.1615-resistance. If the 1.1615/20-barrier gives way to fresh bullish momentum we may see the euro rising towards 1.1650/60. For bearish momentum to accelerate it would need a sustained break below 1.1520.

GBP/USD: The cable traded with a tailwind after it rejected the 1.31-support. We now focus on a potential trading range between 1.3220 and 1.3130. Sterling bulls could benefit from price breakouts above 1.3180 while bears should wait for prices below 1.3130 in order to sell sterling towards 1.31 and 1.3070.

GBP/USD Trends Upwards While EUR/USD Remains Stuck In Consolidation Phase

Dear Traders,

Monday was characterized by a weakening U.S. dollar which suffered a slight setback against its counterparts. The recent weakness can be attributed to uncertainty over the future monetary policy stance of the Federal Reserve. New York Fed President William Dudley plans to retire next year and with Dudley’s planned exit, the unfilled board seats create uncertainty over the Fed’s approach to policy in the coming year.

The EUR/USD extended its consolidative mode into the new week and traders are still struggling with false breakouts and limited price swings. ECB President Mario Draghi is scheduled to speak at the ECB Forum on Banking Supervision today at 9:00 UTC but these opening remarks might be not enough to free the euro from its lethargy. Technically speaking, we now wait for a break below 1.1570 to sell euros whereas on the topside, we expect potential gains to be limited until 1.1660 and 1.17 amidst subdued price action.

The best performer was the GBP/USD which rose towards 1.3180, providing buyers a good profit yesterday. The latest upward move is not surprising given the fact that the pound continues to oscillate within its range between 1.3340 and 1.30.
